Lamborghini making an SUV.

No, that is not an SUV, it is a FWIT (F***ing What Is That?).

This is like surgically altering a cat to be an alligator that is vegan.  It fails on every single level measurable to mankind.

William Kristol is not perfect but (a) I like him, and (b) I respect his opinion.  It’s no secret that Romney isn’t the guy I’d pick to be president but in a choice between him and Obama I’ll take Romney and dance in the streets (while still hoping for that giant asteroid strike, but still happier than I would otherwise be).

I do believe his take on what it will take to beat Obama.  Act like a president… like a LEADER.  He’s quite correct that to get down in the mud and poo-flinging trenches with the dems is a losing battle since they are much better at petty sh*t.

But if he allows the race to degenerate into name-calling and gotcha gimmicks, he could lose. Democrats are better than Republicans at the small and nasty stuff.  – William Kristol

I agree.  I have run into this firsthand with several liberals.  When you try to have an intellectual debate and they find themselves confronted with a well reasoned argument that they don’t like they storm away angrily and offended at your gall for your un-compassionate misanthropic world-view.  This happened one day at work as I discussed Global Warming with a liberal co-worker.  Every statement he uttered was a textbook bullet-point.  When he claimed that only 3% of scientists held views counter to AGW, I looked at him with utter disbelief and flat out told him that he needs to stop reading the propaganda and actually research rather than parrot off things that are completely false.  He then stormed away muttering “Well, maybe YOU don’t care about destroying your children’s world but I won’t do that to MY children.”

Hey, if he truly believes that, I can commend him on his principles and devotion to his children.  But I can also call him out for making arguments that are outlandish and supposedly are self-evident and self-supporting, needing no defense or foundation.

Update:  Climate Alarmist Calls for Burning Down Skeptic’s Homes

See the thought process there?  “Well, why not?  If they won’t listen to me, I have every right to burn down their homes.”   Lot of ego wrapped up in that broken toy.

So Romney needs to ignore every damn thing Obama says.  He needs to talk about what he will do and not once attack Obama.  He needs to be of the mindset that he can say something that cuts his opponent deeply and gives them pause about pulling such crap while staying classy and move right along to the important things.

He doesn’t have the luxury for getting bogged down in the childish antics of the buffoon that currently holds the office that I admire.  I once got to see Clinton speak and it was an honor to see the President, it was repulsive to see Clinton.  The two can co-exist.  I don’t know if I could pull it off so easily if Obama had been in that place at that time.  At least Clinton has brains.  He actually did know how to lead.  I disagreed with damn near everything he stood for but I’d take him over what we have now.

There are some things that are just so weird that when you try to dress it up and claim that the condition needs “acceptance” I don’t even consider the notion, such as with liberalism.  Also, phantom genitalia fall under that rainbow-colored umbrella of bizzarro-ness.  Thank you, FARK.

’I sometimes wake up thinking I have a penis…’

As do many men, then they either speak to their wives or they go to work.   (Joking about the first one)

Bumper stickers for fun.  Buy a truckload and put my Little Lemurs through college…

Working on a Jolokia pepper t-shirt and mug for Curtal Friar at Fountain Abbey.   It must somehow incorporate steel balls and a ghost pepper – I think I know what I want to do with that imagery…

The things you find on Fark.  Man fakes severe brain injury to get nurse to change his adult diapers.  No, I don’t have a thing for infantile adults wearing diapers, I’m just repulsed by them.

Why yes, yes I do want to be tracked even more heavily by my smartphone, data harvesting combines, and my government.  Hotels may use smartphones as keys.

Recently it was posed to me that perhaps I.C. Weiner made a mistake and since he admitted that he committed creepery, lied, and then owned up to it (after being caught) perhaps he should be given credit for that at least.

It took me a while to ponder on it and came to the conclusion that no, he shouldn’t be given another chance, not at all.

Why?

Because every single adult has lied as a kid, got caught, got punished, and yes, we do know right from wrong.  That lesson is learned – whether or not someone chooses to live by it.  As an adult there’s no excuse and you should face consequences.  He’s 46 freakin’ years old.  That’s old enough to know right and wrong and to be judged accordingly.

Now?  Why now, Weiner is a child predator, too!   What do you want to bet now his wife ditches him?

And somehow, Mrs. Righteous Grandmother declines to denounce the now-detumescent Weiner.  She’s a real ball of fire, that swamp-drainer.

According to Tennessee law, if you are upset by any imagery I post, you can sue me.

For that and several other reasons, I hate Tennessee.

Jeez, son… you got no reason to kill yourself… you’ve got your whole life ahead of y… nevermind.

Gosh, sucks to be you on so many levels.

Final Fantasy VII was an excellent game.  I never imagined Tifa looking like this, though.  Not that I disapprove.

Below that… Power Girl?  I am wondering where she was when I was twelve.  Probably the same place Agatha in Girl Genius was – not in my possession.  Oh well, I had Kathy Smith on a poster in my room.

Janet Napolitano arguing that there’s no logic in profiling muslim men under the age of 35.  Oh, ok then, well… what the hell did she say?

“You’re not using good logic there. You’ve got to use actual intelligence that you received. And, so, you might — all you’ve given me is a kind of status. You have not given me a technique for tactic or behavior. Something that would suggest somebody is not Muslim, but Islamic, that has actually moved into the category of violent extremists,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said at a forum on U.S. security and preventing terrorist attacks.

“We have ways to make some of those cuts. And they involve the intel that comes in, the analysis that goes on. For example, we often times, for travelers entering the United States, we won’t not do what is called a secondary inspection just because they are a 35-year- old male who appears to be Muslim, whatever that means. But we know from intelligence that if they have a certain travel pattern over a certain period of time, that should cause us to ask some more significant questions than if we don’t.”

– Janet Napolitano on whether we profile or not, maybe, whatever that means

Let’s see – she wanders before she finally doesn’t make a point.   Second paragraph – non-sequitur, a double negative, and still doesn’t make a coherent statement.  I feel much safer-er now.  If she handles security like she speaks, stupid things like groping and searching old ladies and children are going to start happening.

Oops.

So apt

How very appropriate for the symbol of the Democratic party to be an ass.

“In this case a lot of people in this country, it’s my belief, don’t want to be governed by an African-American, particularly one who is inclusive, who is liberal, who wants to spend money on everyone and who wants to reach out to include everyone in our society. And that’s a basic philosophical clash,” Virginia Democratic Rep. Jim Moran said.

Then:

  1. How was Obama elected?
  2. How were so many Democrats elected alongside Obama?
  3. Does the unpopularity of Bush near the end of his term then imply that a lot of people wanted an inclusive liberal black man to govern them?

Obama could be any color of the rainbow and still scare me with his policies.

Your logic is faulty, Moran.

Reach out?  Include?  The last two years had precious little reaching out.  Lots of bowing, and I suppose reaching out to madmen and dictators does count, but not to anyone here in the USA who didn’t already agree with him.

Moran.  Moron.  Coincidence?

Maybe he was smoking some “Whoonga“…

Users crush the anti-retroviral medications and smoke them with a mixture of rat poison, detergent and marijuana to get high. The powder is said to be so addictive that users are hooked within days.

Sounds bizarre enough to me to group it with the “Jenkem” urban legend, though.

Thanks to observant reader Mitchell, he passed on a link that illustrates what really pisses me off – I, the average self-absorbed reader.  Thanks also to THR for publishing the interview in the first place.

Just in case THR somehow gets bullied into pulling the interview, there is one part, one tiny part that will PISS you off.  Remember, the guy has just expanded Netflix to Canada from the USA.

THR: Are you concerned that American Netflix subscribers will look north and ask for the same discount Canadians get at $7.99?

Hastings: How much has it been your experience that Americans follow what happens in the world? It’s something we’ll monitor, but Americans are somewhat self-absorbed.

So, two things to note:

  1. I have already cancelled Netflix
  2. Netflix can wither, die, kiss my ass

I may be a self-absorbed American but I’ll be damned if I’m going to give my money to some pus-wad that treats me, the customer, with contempt.

I’m kind of tired of having the US bashed and I’m tired of the people within that think it’s ok to do it, too.  In fact, I’d be willing to be that there’s an awful lot of people who won’t take kindly to this because they’re fed up with the liberal “My country is a bunch of awful self-centered people except for me and my friends and we need to pass laws to force them to do like me and my friends do” kind of attitude.

I wonder if this Reed Hastings isn’t going to look back and say “In retrospect I probably shouldn’t have said that.”

Sure hope so.

Netflix was kind of cool, convenient, easier than renting a video.  But you know what?  It wasn’t in the least bit vital to my life and I can drop it in a heartbeat.

Several times now, I have had someone look at me with a startled look and say:

You’re a die-hard Conservative? Wow. But you seem so nice…

The take-home on this I guess is that they expect a conservative to drink babies’ blood and laugh when whole families are torn apart by something as simple as rabid wolves.

Cruel Wife had a great rejoinder:

You are Liberal? But you seem so smart…

I’m working from home today and won’t post much but I will update the Acupuncture Chronicles this evening. Today was… interesting.

Free speech is wonderful, but exercising your asshole opinion at a graduation so you can take the spotlight during someone ELSE’S recognition of achievement makes you doubly and asshole. So, hey, Brian Williams, this one is for you (pig).

Many thanks to Brent Baker for posting this – go hunt him down and read more of his stuff. Embedded in Baker’s account, here’s a funny one that the Moronosphere will laugh at:

Williams scolded bloggers for writing about themselves

Yeah, blogging sure has been terrible for it’s ability to keep the media honest. Damn us! We’re BASTARDS. And now, the article.

NBC’s Williams Tells Grads U.S. Broken, ‘Need You to Fix the Country’

By Brent Baker | June 9, 2008 – 21:30 ET

Delivering the commencement address Sunday at Ohio State University in Columbus, where we was awarded an honorary Doctor of Journalism degree, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams implied America is broken as he told the graduates: “We need you to fix the country.” That clip, squeezed in between Al Gore at Carnegie Mellon and Martin Sheen at Notre Dame, aired as part of an annual compilation of commencement advice run at the end of Monday’s NBC Nightly News. NBC also aired this from Williams: “We need you all now to step up. And every adult in this place has every faith that you’re up to the job.”

Video of a commencement story on the Web site of NBC’s Columbus affiliate, WCMH-TV, featured a longer version of the line from Williams: “We need you to fix the country — and I’m sorry to ask this of you.” In another soundbite aired by the local station, Williams paraphrased Bill Clinton: “There is nothing wrong with America that someone from Ohio State can’t fix. Go get them OH!”

[UPDATE, 10:30 PM EDT: I found full video on MSNBC.com, and the entire address isn’t as political as the “we need you to fix the country” comment suggested. Williams, however, apologized: “On behalf of my generation, I’m so sorry, the Internet is so cool we got sidetracked.” He urged the graduates to “pick one area” and do something about it, recommending they “start with climate” since “something tells me this may be a challenge in the years ahead” to “find a way to get around without fuel in our tanks that comes from an enemy of this country.”

Echoing a theme of those calling for “change,” Williams pleaded:

We won’t see an election like this for decades again in this country. We are at a crossroads. They don’t get more important and it’s so important that you all get involved. Put your generational stamp on American politics.

Williams scolded bloggers for writing about themselves, exhorting bloggers to talk “about all of us” since “we need to start thinking of us as the collective, the United States that we used to know.”]

It may well be that polls show many Americans think the nation is heading in the wrong direction, but does that mean it is appropriate for a journalist — in a national election year — to declare that America needs to be “fixed,” clearly suggesting the country is broken?

I looked around the Web extensively for more of what Williams said, June 8, in order to get a fuller quote to put it all in context, but came up empty. The Columbus Dispatch‘s Monday story didn’t quote Williams, the Ohio State commencement page does not have text of the prepared remarks, the OSU press release page offers nothing, the student newspaper hasn’t published since June 2 and the WOSU-TV channel 34 site has a page with video highlights of past commencements, but nothing yet from the latest one. And Williams has not posted anything about it on his Daily Nightly blog.

UPDATE: The portion I transcribed from the Flash video posted on MSNBC.com of nearly the entire June 8 remarks:

…I come here today with a request for the Class of ’08: We need you to fix the country — and I’m sorry to ask this of you. And I’m deadly serious and we really do. I am 49 and on behalf of my generation, I’m so sorry, the Internet is so cool we got sidetracked. I can burn an hour on Perez Hilton like that. And I know I speak for a lot of you: WebMD, very cool, except anything I’ve ever punched in comes back “thyroid cancer.”

The Internet is fantastic and it takes way too much of our time, so, with apologies, we need you all now to step up and every adult in this place has every faith that you’re up to the job. You are today, as of today, as fearsome a weapon as the one they assembled during the Manhattan project in a similar place — Soldier Field up in Chicago. You are the most fearsome weapon in the world. You are students in the United States of America armed with a newly-minted college degree from the Ohio State University.

So pick one area: energy, politics, diplomacy, science, education, military, transportation. Start with climate. Something tells me this may be a challenge in the years ahead. Tomorrow’s predicted high for Columbus is 220 degrees.

Energy policy: Can you please help us find a way to get around without fuel in our tanks that comes from an enemy of this country?

We can no longer fly dependably, commercially point to point in this country…

Politics: Pick a campaign. Campaign for McCain, campaign for Obama, campaign for the Libertarian, for the Vegan Party, but volunteer, get out there and campaign for someone. We won’t see an election like this for decades again in this country. We are at a crossroads. They don’t get more important and it’s so important that you all get involved. Put your generational stamp on American politics.

Dial in and pay attention, and I say that as part of a group we all have to start thinking and acting as one. There are, as of this week, 117 million blogs in the United States. One more time: 117 million blogs. And I stand here today as one of them. And what do most of us bloggers talk about? Us. And the problem is we need to start talking about us, all of us. We need to start thinking of us as the collective, the United States that we used to know. It’s going to require a lot of work.

I am proud to say that in my life and my job I am able to spend a lot of time with American in uniform. They are magnificent and would so enjoy this here today….They too, as you are, are the very best of your generation. Think of them when you think you’re having a bad day….Will all veterans of the U.S. armed forces please do us the honor of standing up in place?…

Note: The only reason I will paste text in verbatim from someone else’s blog is if I am reasonably certain that people will be interested in that person’s site and visit them more (or for the first time). This material is important enough that “seeding” like this is worth doing. Important? Yes, because it highlights how many levels at which the indoctrination is occurring.

Now, seein’ as how I grew up in the NorthWest and lived for a time just two cities away from Pasco (three cities are mushed into one, really – the Tri-Cities) I had to post this. I am of the opinion that you have to elect to be this stupid. It can come natural but those who are gifted practice diligently and aspire to things that the rest of us can only shudder at.

This, Gentle Reader, is the account of one of those people.

PASCO, Wash. — What happened to faking a cough?

Sheriff’s detectives in Washington state say a man had his friend shoot him in the shoulder so he wouldn’t have to go to work.

When he first spoke with deputies, Daniel Kuch told them he’d been the victim of a drive-by shooting while he was jogging Thursday.

But detectives told KONA radio that Kuch later acknowledged that he asked his friend to shoot him so he could get some time off work and avoid a drug test.

The friend has been arrested for investigation of reckless endangerment. Kuch is expected to be charged with false reporting.

Detectives declined to say where Kuch works, or whether he still has a job. It wasn’t known if he had obtained a lawyer.

Ok, friends, wasn’t that fun! No, really, I guess it wasn’t but it’s fun to mock someone else for a change isn’t it?

Speaking of electing to be stupid – or is it “being elected to be stupid”? I present to you: Mackhack Amadgenjad… no… Moachmoog Agardencad… oh hell… the Iranian President:

amadinejad.jpg

Here he is pictured proudly saying “Iran is the number one power in the world“.

THE SUPERPOWER.

<crickets chirp>

the superpower

<crickets chirp disinterestedly>

dammit…

<sound of miniature folding chair falling to the floor as the last cricket books out of there>

the superpower… we ARE… we ARE!

Sadly, most of the Iranian people are just plain ordinary people and one gets the impression they wish their president would close his mouth for a spell. You can read the sorry account of his drivel here: Amadinejad Drivel Here on Fox News

Next I’d like to direct you to a person who is a large presence (IMHO) in the blogworld and the latest post that quite well illustrates what we’ve all seen – yes, there is bias in media. Wait, I know, you’re all saying “We KNOW that, you dolt!” But here’s the fun part – when it is the media engaging in Liberal Cannibalism – eating their own! The Ace of Spades HQ illustrates it beautifully.

Before you go, here’s a little something to get the conspiracy-theory nuts whipped into a froth.
Jets, Fuel, and What Damage They Do to Targets
Note that it’s the fuel, not really the aircraft that does the share of the damage. An aircraft is strong, but not usually THAT strong. Just look at the video. Concreted is strongeder-er-er.

Enough – quit reading this blog and go enjoy this beautiful above-freezing Saturday.
