Sorry but Babs Boxer takes a backseat to this particular entry.  Look below for discussion on her particular psychological dysfunction.

This mini-post is about my current intellectual erection.  This is so cool I’m going to run out and buy cigarettes just for that “after sex” feeling.

Shapeways 3D Printing

I do solid modeling daily – every day in my work.  I also love to raytrace/render as a hobby along with graphics in general.  So when I saw this site which allows you to upload your 2-manifold models and have them “printed” then cast in stainless or ABS and other plastics my brain went SCHWING!!!!

I’m going to post an image to whet your appetite – go to their site and see what they can do.  Think of it as free advertising, Shapeway.  I’ll take the image down if you like but I’m plugging for you guys.  The piece below is by Bathsheba and there’s other stuff by Bathsheba Grossman here.

Is this not one of the coolest damn things you've seen in a long time?

I know I can use Solidworks and it looks like Blender3D can be used as well (it outputs STL files).

Babs gets knocked out again.

Remember last week, the government panel of “experts” that ruled that mammograms for women under 50 were not recommended?

Here’s their apology today:

The task force, made up of doctors and scientists, acknowledged the way in which the recommendations were released wasn’t done very smoothly — and the timing wasn’t great either, right in the middle of a heated debate on health care.

I beg to differ.  It is the PERFECT time to put out recommendations because they just gave us a taste of what is going to happen if this “health care reform” is passed – essentially the gov’t making all kinds of stupid decrees like this as they ration off all sorts of things that they aren’t really experts on.  Had they actually been experts in this field they would not have come to that conclusion.

It was the perfect time.  I couldn’t have asked for a better time.

The ever-so-enlightened queen moonbat of the libtards has spoken.  I’m actually somewhat surprised because I thought not even she would utter something this stupid.

Boxer … said that the recently released e-mails, showing scientists allegedly overstating the case for climate change, should be treated as a crime.

“You call it ‘Climategate’; I call it ‘E-mail-theft-gate,'” she said during a committee meeting. “Whatever it is, the main issue is, Are we facing global warming or are we not? I’m looking at these e-mails, that, even though they were stolen, are now out in the public.”

Projection by proxy?  What the hell do you call her stance beyond “weird”?

Certainly shows a huge lack of ability to put competing issues in proper perspective.  On one had we have a whistleblower who hacked a guy’s computer.  On the other hand we have “a guy” and his cohorts who systematically alter, fabricate, massage, delete, and misconstrue data as well as like to cover it up, and then they go on to ride a gravy train while convincing most of the rest of the world – those that are unable to think for themselves, that is – that the world is going to end in a ball of flame and lots of warm water.

All at the expense of literally trillions of dollars, entire economies altered, many many jobs lost.

Yeah, I guess figuring out a guy’s password is a pretty damn big deal.

Creativity runs rampant when it comes to budgeting, only political budgeting never starts with “How much do we have that we can responsibly spend?” or “What do we need and can we afford it?”   No, political budgeting starts with “Here’s what we want, get a ballpark cost on it and then we’ll raise taxes by whatever is required as we know more.”

House Democrats Have “Lots Of Potential Targets For Higher Taxes” To Pay For Government-Run Health Care. “House Democrats have lots of potential targets for higher taxes as they aim to expand health care coverage to reach the roughly 50 million that experts say are uninsured. Also under consideration are higher alcohol taxes, increases to the Medicare payroll tax and a value-added tax, a sort of national sales tax, of up to 1.5 percent or moreThe [other] tax options include: increasing the price of soda and other sugary drinks by 10 cents a can, applying a potential 2 percent income tax increase to single taxpayers earning more than $200,000 a year and households earning more than $250,000, a new employer payroll tax could target 3 percent of employers’ health care expenditures, taxing employer-provided health insurance benefits above certain levels … House Democrats planned to unveil a draft of their sweeping health care bill Friday … The draft, being released at a news conference … was not expected to mention the potentially unpopular tax options.” (Erica Werner, “House Eyes New Taxes As Senators Pare Health Bill,” The Associated Press, 6/19/09)

A “sort of national sales tax, of up to 1.5 percent or more”.  Well, that pretty much hedges the bets, doesn’t it?  I guess even if you do a 6% national sales tax it still is a true statement.

This is a cheap shot but raising the price of soda by 10¢ a bottle is… a regressive tax!  Yahoo!

NBC’s Chuck Todd: The honeymoon is coming to an end for President Obama, but it’s not personal. It’s professional, as now the public appears to be judging the president on some of his actions.” (NBC‘s “Nightly News,” 6/17/09)

They’re JUST NOW judging him on his actions?  Oh yeah, they’re in bed, all right.

THAT’S the religion of peace I know so well!

Neda Soltan, Iranian innocent bystander, shot to death next to the car she had been riding in.  Bled to death on the street.

Why shot?  Because the peace-lovin’ religious leaders in Iran decided that people demanding some level of self-determination was a Bad Thing.  So they shot these criminals, these lovers of freedom and peace.

Her family scheduled a memorial service to be held in a mosque in northern Tehran, but the government forbade ceremony. She was buried quietly at Tehran’s Behesht Zahra cemetery on Sunday with only her family present, says Soona Samsami, executive director of the Women’s Freedom Forum, who has been relaying information about protests inside Iran to international media.

All mosques were given a direct order from the government barring them from holding any memorial services for Neda, and her family was threatened with grave consequences if anyone gathered to mourn her, said Samsami.

In all but the rarest of instances, look for religion to be used as a tool to control people.   I am not anti-religion.  I’m anti-humans-controlling-religion.

Speaking of taxes, apparently her brain was fairly taxed just keeping her body breathing.stupid_is_as_stupid_does

A teenager who claimed 56 stars were tattooed on her face while she slept has admitted she lied and was awake the whole time.

London’s Daily Telegraph reported Kimberley Vlaminck, who said she fell asleep after asking for only three stars, lied because her father was “furious.”

“I asked for 56 stars and initially adored them,” Vlaminck told a Dutch TV crew. “But when my father saw them, he was furious. So I said I fell asleep and that the (he) had made a mistake.”

Let this be a lesson kids.  If you’re thinking of getting a tattoo on your face, think about what people will say.  Then get one of a naked lady.

Boxer gets all the respect she deserves.  It was in the PatriotPost today.

Girl, 10, Dies 7 Hours After Being Granted Dying Wish

Friday, June 19, 2009

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. —  Colby Curtin got her final wish.

The 10-year-old cancer patient was too sick to go to the theater to see the Disney-Pixar movie “Up,” so an employee of the studio flew to her house with a DVD copy — which she watched just seven hours before she died, her mother said.

While waiting for the movie to arrive on June 10, Colby’s mother, Lisa, said she asked her daughter: “Do you think you can hang on?”

“I’m ready (to die), but I’m going to wait for the movie,” she told The Orange County Register her daughter replied.

Colby was unable to open her eyes to see the movie so her mother described the scenes. After the movie ended, her mother asked if Colby enjoyed it. Her daughter nodded, Curtin said.

There is a girl I can respect.  Her folks should be proud.

Thanks go to Disney-Pixar.

Here’s someone who I can’t dredge up even a micro-give-a-shite’s worth of will to even try to hunt for respect.

Sen. Boxer Offers No Apology for Rebuking Brigadier General Who Called Her ‘Ma’am’

Imagine Boxer actually doing something other than being a brass-balls bitch.

You can’t, can you?

Aside from a briefly worded statement about a “friendly” conversation she had with Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh after dressing him down for calling her “ma’am,” Boxer remained silent Friday in the face of growing calls for her to apologize.

“Senator Boxer spoke with General Walsh yesterday and he said he was fine with her comments at the hearing,” Boxer spokesman Zachary Coile said in a statement sent Friday to FOXNews.com.

Brig. Gen. Walsh didn’t get where he is today by badmouthing even a creep like Boxer when she deserves it.  He’s got more class in his tiniest fart than she has in her entire body.  He deserves more respect than he’s getting and certainly much more than she gets.

I lay odds that she’ll mouth something that could be taken as an apology but really is nothing of the sort within a week from today.  It’ll read something like “I have nothing but respect for our armed services and especially Brig. Gen. Walsh (some of my best friends are soldiers) and I am sorry if some people were offended.”

See?  That’s not an apology but a lot of people think that’s good enough.

Rhymes with “Witch”

Yes, Mrs. Boxer is a stitch, all right.

Brig. Gen. Michael Walsh, with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, was testifying on the Louisiana coastal restoration process in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He began to answer one of Boxer’s questions with “ma’am” when Boxer immediately cut him off.

“You know, do me a favor,” a piqued Boxer said. “Could say ‘senator’ instead of ‘ma’am?'”

“Yes, ma’am,” Walsh interjected.

“It’s just a thing, I worked so hard to get that title, so I’d appreciate it, yes, thank you,” she said.

“Yes, senator,” he responded.

Not sure why she has to engage in a pissing context but I guess that’s the nature of the course when working with Ms. Boxer.  It should be noted that “Sir” or “Ma’am” are perfectly acceptable signs of respect either in the military or out.  She’s probably one of those women I have run in to that gets pissed when you hold a door open for them.

I’m thinking she needs something more than whatever it is she’s getting.  I love the “Yes, ma’am”.  Score one for the General.

What he should have said was that the least she can do is call him  Brigadier General Walsh, since he worked so hard to get that title.  He could have done that, as she is NOT his boss.
