I Need A Favor

As you read in the post below, I've been having some trouble with my connection. But I'm beginning to wonder if that's the real problem. Because some sites will load just fine. Like Best Buy, Yahoo, Barnes & Noble and IMDB. While some won't. Like Amazon, Netflix and TinyPic. Could someone log on to those four sites and see if they load for you. I want to know if it's just me or what, because it's strange that some load fine and others don't. I was conversing with someone I know in China and he's having trouble with his connection because of the recent earthquake that hit the region and I'm wondering if maybe that could be causing the problem. A far reach, I know, but worth a shot.
First off, I've been having some trouble with my ISP which has made loading page king of iffy. Sometimes I can and sometimes I can't. So for those of you on the WHB, if you don't get the post next week it's because I couldn't get it out.

Anyway, I've been tagged by Greta so I now have to tell you five things you may not know about me.

1. I'm afraid of the dark. I sleep with my stereo on that has a bright blue light on it.
2. I can pop my knuckles just by closing my fists.
3. I can't swim. When I was younger I almost drowned in the lake and ever since then I won't go in water deeper than my chest.
4. I have gray hair. Have ever since the 10th grade.
5. I apparently sound like a woman on the phone. In person I have a fairly deep voice, so go figure.

I tag John K, Za & Deo.

A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

Here's a link to a picture of John Kerry's recent trip to Iraq to meet with the uneducated troops there. In the picture, Kerry is eating breakfast with the troops, only none of them seem to want to sit with him. Gee, I wonder why. It kind of reminds me of the picture that came out a year or so ago where the soldier who was posing with Hilary Clinton had his fingers crossed. A sign of distress.

Wednesday Heroes

Every once and awhile I'll do a Wednesday Hero that doesn't profile a single soldier. Sometimes it's been two or three from the same unit, sometimes it's been an entire group of soldiers like the Navajo Code Talkers. I even did an organization once, Operation Iraqi Children. This weeks Wednesday Hero is one of those sometimes. This weeks Wednesday Heroes are the parents of soldiers.

These people sacrifice just as much, if not more, than the soldiers themselves. They, in many cases, are having their babies leave home for the first time in their lives. While most parents only have to adjust to them moving a few miles away or going off to college, these Blue Star Parents have to watch their children go off to a very dangerous situation and can only hope and pray that everything will turn out okay. I don't have children of my own, so I can't even imagine what that is like. We have a few Blue Star Parents in the blogroll, so to them, and every parent of a Hero, I tell you we all stand with and support you and your family.
There's a site that everyone should check out if they haven't already. Blue Star Mothers Of America.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

Santa Arrested, Repost

I hope everyone had a great Christmas and that you didn't eat too much. I posted this last year and felt it was so good that I couldn't pass up doing so again this year.

Dec. 26, 7:00 AM (CT)

SAN FRANCISCO (RWRM News) - Santa Clause was arrested early Monday morning by San Francisco Police at the behest of the ACLU. The jolly fat man known the world over for bringing presents to good little boys and girls was arrested Christmas morning on charges of instigating a riot when citizens of San Francisco began to burn cars and destroy private property upon hearing Mr. Claus reciting, "Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas".

"I was incensed" said one woman. "How dare he say something like that. Chri... Chris... I can't even say it. All I know is it offended me and my children".

Anthony RomeroSaid Anthony Romero, ACLU Executive Director, "This is a great day for freedom. This Mr. Claus has been going around the world spreading his religious hatespeech far too long. We will not sit idly by and let people say the 'C' word like this. It must be stopped. We plan to take this matter to the highest court in the land. Mr. Kringle must be stopped".

After hearing about the arrest children all over the world began to cry. Mrs. Sarah Stephens, mother of three, said "We depend on Santa. We can't afford to buy our children toys for Christmas and he wasn't able to make it to our house this year. What are we to do now?" Upon hearing this, Mr. Romero was quoted as saying, "Too bad. Contact the government. That's what they're there for. To take care of us".

Mr. Kringle was said to be just finishing up at an orphanage when the police nabbed him.

Santa Mugshot"This is bullshit," said Santa about his arrest. "I've never heard of such trumped up charges in my life. This is just another example of the Neo-Libs trying to force their views on the rest of the country. Kids, don't worry, Santa will beat this. MERRY CHRISTMAS...MERRY CHRISTMAS".

Mr. Kringle's lawyer, Alan Thomas, rushed to his defense. "Mr. Claus is innocent of all charges", he said during a press conference. "The ACLU and the city of San Francisco are trying to silence a man for doing only one thing. Exorcising his first amendment right. This travesty of justice will be rectified. Christmas will not be stopped". Upon saying that Mr. Thomas was then arrested himself.

"This has gotten out of hand", said one man who wishes to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal. "This whole anti-Christmas sentiment that's sweeping though this country has gone too far. I was too scared to even put up lights this year. My children were threatened by their school mates just last week for bringing candy canes to class".

Ms. Heather Fong, San Francisco Chief Of Police, refused to return our calls. But Officer Thomas Hall said, "That old man sure can put up a fight. He took three of our best before we were able to subdue him".

Blitzen and Comet were said to inconsolable after the arrest. But Dasher had this to say, "Santa will not be in jail for long. I guarantee that. This injustice will not stand. FIGHT THE POWER!!!".

Merry Christmas

I hope everyone has a safe and happy Christmas. I hope Santa brings you everything on your list and the family doesn't drive you too crazy. I will see you all again on Tuesday.

A U.S. Marine's Christmas
'Twas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone,
In a one-bedroom house made of plaster and stone.
I had come down the chimney, with presents to give
and to see just who in this home did live.

As I looked all about, a strange sight I did see,
no tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.
No stocking by the fire, just boots filled with sand.
On the wall hung pictures of a far distant land.

With medals and badges, awards of all kind,
a sobering thought soon came to my mind.
For this house was different, unlike any I'd seen.
This was the home of a U.S. Marine.

I'd heard stories about them, I had to see more,
so I walked down the hall and pushed open the door.
And there he lay sleeping, silent, alone,
Curled up on the floor in his one-bedroom home.

He seemed so gentle, his face so serene,
Not how I pictured a U.S. Marine.
Was this the hero, of whom I'd just read?
Curled up in his poncho, a floor for his bed?

His head was clean-shaven, his weathered face tan.
I soon understood, this was more than a man.
For I realized the families that I saw that night,
owed their lives to these men, who were willing to fight.

Soon around the Nation, the children would play,
And grown-ups would celebrate on a bright Christmas day.
They all enjoyed freedom, each month and all year,
because of Marines like this one lying here.

I couldn't help wonder how many lay alone,
on a cold Christmas Eve, in a land far from home.
Just the very thought brought a tear to my eye.
I dropped to my knees and I started to cry.

He must have awoken, for I heard a rough voice,
"Santa, don't cry, this life is my choice
I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more.
My life is my God, my country, my Corps."

With that he rolled over, drifted off into sleep,
I couldn't control it, I continued to weep.

I watched him for hours, so silent and still.
I noticed he shivered from the cold night's chill.
So I took off my jacket, the one made of red,
and covered this Marine from his toes to his head.
Then I put on his T-shirt of scarlet and gold,
with an eagle, globe and anchor emblazoned so bold.
And although it barely fit me, I began to swell with pride,
and for one shining moment, I was Marine Corps deep inside.

I didn't want to leave him so quiet in the night,
this guardian of honor so willing to fight.
But half asleep he rolled over, and in a voice clean and pure,
said "Carry on, Santa, it's Christmas Day, all secure."
One look at my watch and I knew he was right,
Merry Christmas my friend, Semper Fi and goodnight.

The Rat Shows His Face Again

Zawahri to Democrats, You're Welcome.

This was sent along by a member of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll, and I thought I should share it. It's almost 300K, which is why I've linked to it rather than display it. 300K for us dial-up dinosaurs is murder.

But it's good to see that, even under stress these guys are under, they're still able to have some fun.


No Mas Raids

Well, Senorita Rosales, were the government throwing illegals into concentration camps, starving them, conducting horrific experiments and killing them en mass, then I would agree with you.

This is just more scare tactics by people who support illegal immigration to try and get the American people to support it as well. When all else fails, resurrect Hitler.

Have A Very Merry Festive ACLU Christmas Seasonal Celebration

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter.

There was Santa again, on his annual journeys,
Ensnared in a group of eight tiny attorneys.
They looked pretty grim and they threatened to sue,
So we knew in a flash--"It's the ACLU!"
They paid us no heed but went straight to their work,
Handcuffing poor Santa, then said with a smirk:
"This is secular airspace, we can't have a saint
Flying our flight paths--we need some restraint.

A sleigh full of toys is OK, we suppose,
But faith-based incursions we've got to oppose."
Litigation on Christmas is something we dread,
So we nestled our children all under their bed.

The Grinch doesn't scare them, and Scrooge they see through,
But what kids are prepared for the ACLU?
The reindeer were shackled as a further incitement,
Then the lawyers unpackaged a 12-count indictment.

"Merry Christmas to all!" they just had to foreclose
(Though they had no complaint about all the "Ho, ho's").
One lawyer objected to Santa's red clothing.
"It's religiously tainted," he said with some loathing.
"Poinsettias (the red ones) everybody must note, are
A church-state offense in St. Paul, Minnesota!"

Santa's climb up each chimney (one lawyer made mention)
Is a symbolic reference to Jesus's Ascension.
And the reindeer, of course, recall the Apostles,
And those who deny it are nothing but fossils.

These lawyers had labored at neighborhood schools,
Making Christmas extinct there as part of the rules.
Praise Kwanzaa or Ramadan--they think it's quite splendid,
But say "Merry Christmas" and you could get suspended.

Our children, God bless them, don't get or recall
Why "inclusiveness" doesn't include them at all,
Why diversity theory (as the lawyers insist) must
Require the annual quashing of Christmas.

In Canada, home of post-everything living,
Now "The 12 Days of Christmas" are "The 12 Days of Giving."
Christmas trees aren't part of their season at all.
They buy "multicultural trees" at the mall.

At a hospital (Catholic) the staff is ashamed
To use the word Christmas, so their tree is misnamed
As a "care tree," though some would prefer "tree of life."
(Why not "tall lit-up flora" to avoid any strife?)

Australians were told they should have no compunctions
Calling parties at Christmastime "end-of-year functions."
The idea is to make Christmas somehow unmentionable,
A tactic I think of as wholly contemptible.

Instead of "White Christmas," they will probably sing
"I'm dreaming of a snow day some time in pre-spring."
Here's my suggestion, a harsh one I fear,
Why not call Christmas "Christmas"? (It's just an idea.)

And finally, my Christmas card to all my readers. In the past I've only sent it to those I'm closest with, but I wanted to give this to everyone this year. Enjoy.

Rosie vs. Donald Trump

I'm sitting her at my computer and I'm listening to Donald Trump on FNC talking about Rosie O'Donnell. If you didn't hear this, I'm sure you will hear about it soon. He just went off on her. I've never heard anyone rip someone a new one like that in some time. He went after her with both guns blazing. "Rosie's an ugly person. Both inside and out". "I'm sure Rosie would like to spend a few minutes with Miss Universe". Talking about the failure of her magazine and so much other stuff I can't even remember it all. It's about time someone put that softbrain dumbass in her place. She's been spewing hatred and ignorance for years, but since she's been on "The View" she's totally lost it. Kelly Ripa is a homophobe, Christians are terrorists, "ching chong ching chong" and now this.

What is the spirit of Christmas?

A simple enough question. Right? So then, why can't I answer it? Why can't I define what the Christmas spirit is? So I ask you, what is the spirit of Christmas?

Sgt. Roy A. Wood
Sgt. Roy A. Wood
47 years old from Alva, Florida
ODA 2092, Company C, 3rd Battalion, 20th Special Forces Group (Airborne)
January 26, 2005

Sgt. Roy A. Wood, a Special Forces medical sergeant, was fatally injured when the vehicle he was riding in was involved in a traffic accident near Kabul, Afghanistan, during a return convoy from Qalat to Bagram Air Base.

His 24-year military career with the Army Reserve and Army National Guard was distinguished and unique. After receiving a commission as a second lieutenant in 1979, he was first assigned to the Army Reserve’s 421st Quartermaster Company (Light Airdrop Supply).

While assigned to the 421st, he received training as a quartermaster officer, a parachute rigger, and participated in both basic airborne and jumpmaster courses.

In January 1982, he left the 421st to begin an association with U.S. Army Special Forces that would last until, and beyond, his death.

His first SF assignment was to the Army Reserve's 11th Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Meade, Md., where he served in the 3rd Battalion’s Company A as the detachment executive officer for Operational Detachment-A 1175.

In May 1983, he became Detachment Commander for ODA 1175 after returning from the Special Forces Detachment Officer Qualification Course.

In October 1984, he left ODA 1175 to become the Company Logistics Officer.

He served in a variety of positions at the 11th SFG over the next 11 years, including operations officer and support company commander.

After four years at USSOCOM, he served a year with the Army Reserve’s 73rd Field Hospital in St. Petersburg, Fla., before switching from the Reserve to the Army National Guard and renewing his association with Special Forces.

He was assigned to 3rd Bn., 20th SFG in December 2001, where he served for a year as the Battalion Surgeon, supervising medical coverage of three Special Forces companies and one support company.

In December 2002, he resigned his commission to become a Special Forces medical sergeant on Operational Detachment-A 2092, Co. C, 3rd Bn., 20th SFG.

He, with ODA 2092, was mobilized in July 2003 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

At the time of his death, he was pending appointment as a Special Forces warrant officer, a position in which he would have served his team as an assistant detachment commander.

During his service, he received the Army Commendation Medal, the Army Achievement Medal, the Army Reserve Achievement Medal with Silver Hourglass device, the National Defense Service Medal, the Army Service Ribbon, the Basic Parachutist badge, the Parachute Rigger badge, the Ranger tab and the Special Forces tab.

Sgt. Roy Wood leaves behind a wife and two children.

These brave men and women have given their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.

We're Here, We've Got Gears, Get Use To It

A new report from the U.K. says that in the next 50 years sentient machines will have the same rights as humans.

Life Lesson #10

If you can't handle spicy food anymore, don't eat it.
This Was Brought To My Attention By John K

Incoming U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon seems to be getting off to a great start. When asked a question during a news conference about Ahmadinejad's statements about the Holocaust and Israel being wiped off the map, Ki-moon said
Denying historical facts especially on such an important subject as the Holocaust is just not acceptable.

Nor is it acceptable to call for the elimination of states or people
Let's hope this isn't a one off show of a spine.

"In the long history of the world, only a few generations have been granted the role of defending freedom in its hour of maximum danger. I do not shank from this responsibility - I welcome it. I do not believe that any of us would exchange places with any other people or any other generation. The energy, the faith, the devotion which we bring to this endeavour will light our country and all who serve it -- and the glow from that fire can truly light the world.

And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country.

My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man."

When I started Wednesday Hero little over a year ago I never realized what would become of it. I was content with it just being on my one little blog with it's 20-30 readers. Then Greta asked me to come aboard and post with her. And WH began to appear on two blogs. Perfectly fine with me. Fast forward about a year and Greta then suggests that I take WH to the masses and start the Wednesday Hero Blogroll. I was a little wary at first, but I came to think it was a pretty good idea. Fast forward 3-1/2 months and the blogroll is up to 40 blogs, counting this one and Hooah Wife, and the problems have began. Massive system failure with last weeks post and differing ideas on things I've tried. And the more this thing grows the more situations will arise that I will have to deal with. I'm not a leader by nature. I'm a follower. But being that this is my thing, I will have to step up and at least look like I know what I'm doing. Now, I don't expect this will become the next Stop The ACLU, nor do I want it to be, but it has grown beyond what I thought it would. It's a little overwhelming at times but it's sort of gratifying to see something that I did become a small success.

If I hadn't already had gray hair before this, I would now.

The United Nations Continues To Turn A Blind Eye To Darfur

Yid With Lid has a great post up about the U.N. "Human Rights" Council's refusal to condemn the Sudanese government over their continued genocide against the people of Darfur in their latest, in a long line of, toothless resolution. I hear and see people, namely rich, white American celebrities, criticize the Bush administration and the U.S. government time and and time again for not doing enough to help, and all rightly so may I say, but little if anything is said about the U.N.'s handling of the situation. Or lack there of. Isn't this their job?

26 years old from Surrency, Georgia
Regimental Combat Team 2, 2nd Marine Division, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward)
July 21, 2005

Elmer "Mo" Youngblood wasn't sure why his sailor son wanted to leave relatively safe duty aboard a ship to be a combat medic in Iraq.

"For some reason or another, he wanted to be a corpsman," Youngblood said of his son, Petty Officer 3rd Class Travis Levy Youngblood.

He was a medic with a Marine unit in the Iraqi town of Hit when he was hit by an IED.

"I was tickled to death with him being in the Navy," Elmer Youngblood, a former Navy man, said from his home in Surrency, in southeast Georgia. "I wasn’t too happy when he basically volunteered to go over there, but it was his choice."

Travis Youngblood grew up mostly in Virginia. He attended Appling County High School after his father moved there in the 1990s. Surrency is listed as his hometown on his Navy enlistment papers and he and his father enjoyed fishing and hunting together there.

His wife, Laura, also served in the Navy. She left the service and lives in Long Beach, N.Y.

The couple has a four-year-old, now five, son, Hunter Youngblood, and Laura Youngblood was pregnant with the couple's second child at the time of his death.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer.
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
but as for me and grandpa we believe.
She'd been drinking too much eggnog,
and we begged her not to go.
But she forgot her medication, and she
staggered out the door into the snow.
When we found her Christmas morning,
at the scene of the attack,
she had hoof-prints on her forehead,
and incriminating Claus marks on her back.

Grandma got run over by a reindeer.
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,
but as for me and grandpa we believe.

Now we're all so proud of grandpa,
He's been taking this so well.
See him in there watching football,
drinking root beer and
playing cards with Cousin Mel.
It's not Christmas without Grandma,
All the family's dressed in black
and we just can't help but wonder:
Should we open up her gifts,
or send them back?
Send them back!!

Grandma got run over by a reindeer.
Walking home from our house Christmas eve.
You can say there's no such thing as Santa,

Now the goose is on the table
and the pudding made of fig
and the blue and silver candles
that would just have matched
the hair on grandma's wig.
I've warned all my
friends and neighbors
better watch out for yourselves,
they should never give a license
to a man who drives a sleigh
and plays with elves.

In Case You Missed It

Virginia Governor Tim Kaine has been getting some pretty creepy calls. From ghosts. Have you seen that episode of The Twilight Zone where that old woman kept getting calls from her dead husband? Life imitating art.

This was almost the runner-up for the Darwin Award. An Omaha, Nebraska teen takes a gun to school and accidentally shoots himself in the thigh.

A German man dies in a Singapore jacuzzi when he got stuck on the suction drain. He was found on his stomach. Is anyone else thinking he was trying something very, very naughty with the sucking drain when he got stuck? You know what I'm talking about.

What's one of the things we've learned from these posts over the weeks? Don't mess with old people, right. Well, don't mess with pregnant woman's Christmas decorations either. A pregnant woman in Texas took a baseball bat to a piece of scum who was trying to steal a reindeer from her yard.

I hate PeTA, and here's a perfect example why.

And the runner-up for the Darwin Award is Michael McKean, not the guy from Spinal Tap, of Seminole, Florida. It would appear that Mr. McKean's favorite television show is Barnaby Jones because he likes to drive around pretending he's a police detective. He would drive around in his car that was tricked out to look professional, and warn people over the P.A. system he had installed. Well, Mr. Jones, I mean McKean's luck ran out then he began to tail the wrong car one day. A car with a couple of actual detectives inside.

Now, your all asking yourselves, "Chris, how in the world can it get better than that?' Well, here's how.

The winner of the Darwin Award this week is Vernon Proctor of Sacramento, California. Mr. Proctor is the Assistant Principal at Hiram Johnson High. Here's his story. He walks up to the manager of the motel he was staying in telling him that wanted to file a police report because a woman had just stolen all his valuables. Well, hells bells, I'd want to call the cops as well. But there was a problem. The woman who had robbed him was the prostitute he'd rented for the evening and when police arrived they found Mr. Proctor high as a cat on nip.

Best Video Game Ever?

If you have an XBOX 360, then go get Gears Of War and kiss the real world goodbye for a few weeks. This is one of the best games ever made. Second only to GTA:SA. Excuse me while I go into my immature fanboy mode. GOW total rules. Awesome graphics, even on my 19" CRT, amazing sound and a freakin' great sense of realism. You really feel like your taking cover and blasting Locust hordes.

Iraq Is Vietnam

We've been hearing for sometime now that Iraq is the new Vietnam. Guess what, they're right.
A Syracuse woman was charged after a Fort Drum soldier accused her of spitting on him without provocation at Hancock International Airport, Syracuse police said.

Lauren Maggi, 35, of 256 Thurber St., was charged with second-degree harassment after the Nov. 22 incident, according to a police report.

Jason Jones, 21, told police a woman he did not know walked up to him near the United Airlines ticket counter, asked him if he was a Fort Drum solider and, when he responded that he was, spat in his face.

A second soldier on the scene supported Jones’ accusation, police said. Maggi offered no explanation for her conduct, police said. She could not be reached for comment tonight.

The U.N. Wants To Fund Terrorists

This Was Brought To My Attention By John K

Just when you think the Useless Nations couldn't surprise you any more, they go and want the world to send $450 million to Hamas led Palestine.

They voted the terrorist organization into power, and now they're paying for it and the U.N. wants the world to bail their asses out. Two words for you. Fuck That. Maybe the U.N. could take some of that Blood For Oil money they stole and use it to help.

Pearl Harbor

Well, I was going to put up a post talking about the attack on Pearl Harbor that took place in 1941, but a member of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll has written up a pretty good one himself. Head over and check it out.

Life Lesson's #254 & #98

#254 - If you're going to headbang, be mindful of your neck.

#98 - If you're going to put Christmas decorations up outside,
A) Make sure it's above 18 degrees
B) Make sure the wind isn't blowing in 18 degree weather

SFC. Paul Ray Smith
SFC. Paul Ray Smith
33 years old from Tampa, Florida
Bravo Company, 11th Engineer Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division

April 4, 2003

When you think of the word Hero, SFC. Paul Smith is the person you think about.

On April 4, 2003, Smith was setting up a temporary enemy prisoner of war holding area during the seizure of Saddam International Airport when his unit came under attack.

Smith kept his soldiers focused during the fight while engaging the Iraqi force of around 100 men with his M16, a hand grenade and an AT4 anti-armor weapon.

Smith tossed a grenade over a wall then he climbed atop the armored vehicle. Disregarding personal danger, he sprayed the attacking troops with .50-caliber machine gun fire. According to the Army, he told a soldier who accompanied him to "feed me ammunition whenever you hear the gun get quiet." He fired more than 300 rounds at the enemy before being mortally wounded himself.

For his action on that day, SFC. Smith was posthumously awarded the Medal Of Honor by President Bush,

becoming only the 3,459 serviceman to be awarded the honor since the Civil War.

His "conspicuous gallantry, above and beyond the call of duty," according to his citation, protected the soldiers in his platoon as well as other troops at an aid station nearby.

A father needs our help.

An ACLU Christmas Seaonal Celebration

The Young Conservative of Texas have erected an ACLU version of the Nativity Scene. I wonder how long this will stay up before someone bitches that it's offensive to their anti-Christmas views?

For the life of me I can't understand why the precious U.N. won't get off their corrupt, bribe taking asses and do something about this madman. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that had this United Nations been around in the 30's and 40's they would have just sat and watched Hitler while issuing toothless warning after toothless warning.

In Case You Missed It

Before we get started this week, I have to let you know that I think this is the best batch of stories I've posted. All of these people deserved the Darwin Award.

A California man was electrocuted while trying to steal the copper wiring from a vacant building. Hey, copper's can sell for $3+/pound is some areas. So what if I get the shit shocked out of me.

A Colorado man was sentenced to 27 years for breaking into people's homes and asking to smell and lick their feet. That's just nasty right there.

An Arizona man was arrested after he robbed a bank and then proceeded to drive into a building full of police and firefighters. Here's a tip. If the parking lot is full of cop cars, it's probably a good idea to head in that direction after robbing a band.

I think the title of the article says it all. N.Y. Man Accused Of Spray Painting Goats Genitals.

Ever wanted to know the definition of irony? Well this story and this story will pretty well define it for you.

An Australian woman was arrested for biting a cop who was attempting to arrest her for drunk driving. Oh, she also happened to be the wife of the District Court Judge.

A drunk Louisiana priest was arrested for firing a rifle in the air, threatening a store clerk and kicking a deputy in the groin. I couldn't thing of a joke for this one.

The Best Criminal Of All Time.

An man in Ontario, Canada was hit by a train while jogging on the railroad tracks. How do you not hear a train coming. I mean, it's not like it runs silent or something.

Now my favorite part of the program.

The runner up for the Darwin Award is Charles Sibindana from Vereeniging, South Africa. Mr. Sibindana didn't feel like going into work one day so he faked a note from the doctor. Not all that uncommon. But it was the doctor the ailment that set off the warning signs. It seems Mr. Sibindana faked a note from a gynaecologist stating that he was pregnant and needed some time off. I don't think I could add to that even if I wanted to.

And the winners of the Darwin Award are James Walter Quick and Richard Allen Johnson of Lexington, S.C. James and Rich were were sitting around, watching some football, drinking so beer, yep, alcohol was involved, and decided to place a $20 bet on the game. Rich lost and refused to pay. Well, James was understandably upset. I mean, $20 is $20. So he goes to his truck and gets his gun, as any rational man would. He then demands the money. Rich refuses and says, "You can't shoot me, I'm invisible." Guess what, he wasn't.

The Great Ice Storm Of 2006, Pt. 2

We had a pretty decent ice storm back in February and we're now getting another one.
But this is only the begining. Later tonight they're saying we could get anywhere from 3-12 inches of snow. If I stop blogging for a couple of days it's because the power lines went down. I just hope my pipes don't freeze. Ms. Doolittle must be having a field day.

Dear Mahmoud,

On behalf of the American people, I would like to thank you for your letter. I would like to address some of the topics you talked about.

1. Both our nations are God-fearing, truth-loving and justice-seeking, and both seek dignity, respect and perfection.
If that were true, why do you continue to spread lies and propaganda that America is planning to attack? I have yet to hear of such a plan. Also, "justice" in your part of the world mean to behead someone for drawing a cartoon of your God. Doesn't sound like real justice to me.

2. Both greatly value and readily embrace the promotion of human ideals such as compassion, empathy, respect for the rights of human beings, securing justice and equity and defending the innocent and the weak against oppressors and bullies.
Were that true, you wouldn't continue to deny the Holocaust and call for the death of millions of Americans and Jews.

3. We all deplore injustice, the trampling of peoples' rights and intimidation and humiliation of human beings.
Really? How many Iranians are freely allowed to criticize you and your administration without fear of prison or even death?

4. Our nation has always extended its hand of friendship to all other nations of the world.
Even Israel?

5. No people wants to side with or support any oppressors. But regrettably, the US administration disregards even its own public opinion and remains in the forefront of supporting the trampling of the rights of the Palestinian people.
Been reading the San Francisco Chronicle have you? Because the American public overwhelming supports Israel.

6. We all condemn terrorism, because its victims are the innocent.
They why continue your support for organizations such as Hezbollah and al-Qaeda?

7. What have the Zionists(Israel)done for the American people that the US administration considers itself obliged to blindly support these infamous aggressors? Is it not because they have imposed themselves on a substantial portion of the banking, financial, cultural and media sectors?
Been reading the SFC again it seems. You see, if American doesn't stand by Israel no one will protect it's noble citizens from insane madmen like you.

In closing, Mr. Ahmadinejad, the sane rational peoples of America will not back down from terrorist thugs such as yourself. Do we have the odd coward that will try to advert confrontation by turning a blind eye to your actions? Yes, but those who are willing to stand up against you will continue to do so. May your God continue to watch over and protect you from the hell storm you about to bring upon yourself and your people. Merry Christmas.

Next thing you know some loony judge will declare that CD's are unfair to the deaf and watches are unfair to the armless. Dumbass.

Iran vs. The Holocaust

Iran will host a conference next month dealing with the genocide of millions of Jews by the Nazis. Isn't this like Robert Byrd hosting a conference on slavery? A sham.
This conference fully respects the Jewish religion and is away from politicization and propaganda

What Big Media Ignores

We all know about the horrible news out of Iraq and Afghanistan. We get it shoved down out throats on an hourly basis. But there are a lot of stories that you won't see on FNC or CNN or MSNBC. A soldier who is alive and helping someone isn't as good a story as one who was killed in the latest car bomb. So I wanted to post some of the more positive stories coming out of the War On Terror. But I don't have to. This site has put links to some of those stories up themselves.

I think they're angry at the wrong things.
I'm watching Jesse "Media Whore" Jackson give an actual press conference about Michael Richards, what?, today and I'm not sure how he did it but he was somehow able to turn it around and go after Republicans. He somehow worked Trent Lott and Katrina into it. You know, it never ceases to amaze me how the Left can lay the blame for everything at the Republican's feet.

The Story Behind Wednesday Hero

I was asked a pretty good question by one of the newest members of the Wednesday Hero Blogroll. Why did I start it? Below is my response.

I'm not sure if I ever posted why but I started Wednesday Hero because when the news outlets talk about these men and women they only talk about their deaths. How they died, how many have died and so on. Not the soldiers themselves. I wanted to shed some light on who they were and are. Because I don't just profile those who've given their lives. Also, I think that we should all be able to look at their faces. Some people are a little uncomfortable looking into the eyes of a soldier who's given their life. They may feel a little guilty. I want to try to remove that feeling. We should see and thank them.
I heard on the news, though I can't find a link yet, that the men who were the brunt of Michael Richards tirade are planning on suing him. Question. Why? Isn't what he said, no matter how ignorant, covered under the First Amendment? You know, that whole Freedom of Speech thing. Now, there are times when I don't like the first amendment but to sue someone for exorcising that right is pushing it a little. I don't like what Michael Moore has to say, does that mean I can sue him. Can I sue the people who call me a Nazi and war cheerleader?

In Case You Missed It

Oh my God. It's happened again. A Pennsylvania man shoots himself while driving. Once again, Gun Rule #1: Don't Put Gun Near Family Jewels.

The turkey's are mad has hell, and they're not going to take it anymore. Wild turkey's in Maine fight back against the genocide known as Thanksgiving. Another funny part about this story? Look at this woman's profession. Priceless.

A Taiwanese woman has filed a protection order against her husband. Why? Did he beat her? No. Did he threaten her life? No. He told her ghost stories.

Kick-boxing orangutans have been flown back home to the wild. Am I the only one who sees the danger in this? We've seen turkey's fight back. Do we really want an army of hairy Chuck Norris's running wild?

Porn helps Panda's in China get busy. There's a tasteless "bamboo" joke to be made but I won't do it.

First thing that I said when I read the headline? What the hell!?!?!

Canadian P.M., Stephen Harper, and interim Liberal leader, Bill Graham, try to out "you're gayer than me" each other. And I thought our politicians were bad.

A Monk in Thailand cuts off his little Buddha because he got excited during meditation. Blow yourself up for Allah or cut your member off for Buddha. Glad I'm agnostic.

And the winner of this weeks Darwin Award is Paula Davis of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Ms. Davis likes the hooch. In fact she likes it a little too much. See, she'd gotten herself arrested for DUI. So she went to court to plead guilty to the charges. But she didn't show up to court exactly 100% okay. More like 100-Proof. She showed up drunk for her DUI hearing. You go girl. You wear that Darwin Award with pride.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Yes, it's finally here. I know all of you count the days until I reveal the Christmas design. It's the highlight of the year. Well, your wait is over. Let me know what you think. I went a little subdued this year. In past designs I tried to go with something that really popped. Last year it was the traditional gold and green look with the fireplace header. The year before it was the dark blue and neon and the year before that was the other dark blue in which I went all PC and tried to accommodate everyone with the secular and religious celebrations of Christmas, Kwanzaa and Hanukkah. So this year I went with a more festive look that centered on color rather than design. I also want to thank DeoDuce and her husband, Master Of None, for hosting the favicon. I hope you all like it.

White Only Scholarship

To the students at Boston University, I say good on you. There are Black scholarships, Asian scholarships, Indian scholarships, Latino scholarships. Even gay scholarships. But you dare create a scholarship for Whites, and even worse, have it done by Republicans, and all of a sudden it's racist and discriminatory. I call bullshit.

Spc. Donald Laverne Wheeler was affectionately known as "DJ" to his family, which included three sisters and eight brothers. In the military, he picked up the nickname "Sunshine." "They called him Sunshine at Fort Hood in Texas because he was so tall he stood out from everyone else and he was always smiling," said one of his sisters, Andrea Barrett. Wheeler died on October 13, 2003 in an attack in Tikrit. His mother, Mary Cay Wheeler, said he decided to enlist after the Sept. 11 attacks. "He loved the Army but at the same time he missed his family", she said. They had a photo of Wheeler blown up to near life size and brought it to his sister's wedding reception because he couldn't attend. "I shall always remember him, a big kid who gave everything he had on that dusty day," said Lt. Jason Price at a memorial service in Tikrit. "It's difficult to say goodbye."

This guy seems to have a pretty good understanding of what's happening in Iraq right now. He kind of hurts some of his points with the DumbasCrap thing, but other than that... I don't know if he's a ex-soldier or not, but he kind of sounds like he could be.

What Scares Me?

What scares me? Other than psychotic Islamic radicals bent on murdering all non-Muslims in the name of Allah The Merciful? People who refuse to see that danger. I have a few here that are like that. I won't name names, they know who they are. I believe it's because they don't want to see the mounting danger. They're so politically correct and "non-judgmental" that to acknowledge that there is a growing danger with Islamic fundamentalist would rock their very foundation. They're the Neville Chamberlain's to our Winston Churchill's. They're quite content in believing that what ever happens to the evil American Empire is payback for the way we've fucked over the poor Arabs in the past. People like John, Glenn Beck, Bill O'Reilly and myself could talk until we're blue in the face, it wouldn't matter. In these people's eyes, there's no real threat. It's all talk and grandstanding. And if there is an attack? Well, we had it coming. Agree with me? Then you've got a pretty good I.Q. Don't? Then you're one of the people I'm talking about and I really don't give a crap what you think.

I've been feeling in the crapper this past week and haven't been in much of a jovial mood, so not too many jokes in this weeks post.

A Spanish teacher in Smithfield, North Carolina had to resign because an assignment he gave contained words such as "kill" and "destroy America" and phrases such as "Sharon killed a lot of innocent people", "Palestine is not a terrorist group" and "Allah help destroy this body of evil making humanity miserable".

If something ever happens to your sheep, make sure it happens in England. 40 firefighters were sent out to rescue a single sheep.

And angry mother has filed larceny charges against her child's school Superintendent and Principal for confiscating their cell phone which rang in the middle of class.

Come to St. Louis. We have great BBQ, smoking blues and the best crack in America.

The GPS tracking unit that a Florida woman's estranged husband's P.I. attached to the bottom of her car was mistaken for a bomb. Even if my head wasn't pounding, I still wouldn't be able to follow that.

Conservatives Are More Generous

A recent study done by professor Arthur C. Brooks of Syracuse University says that religious Conservatives donate far more money to charitable activities than Liberals do.
For too long, liberals have been claiming they are the most virtuous members of American society. Although they usually give less to charity, they have nevertheless lambasted conservatives for their callousness in the face of social injustice.

Maj. Guy Barattieri
Maj. Guy Barattieri
36 years old from Seattle, Washington
National Guard's Alpha Co., 1st Battalion, 19th Special Forces Group
October 4, 2006

Everyone called him "Bear." In fact, many of his colleagues at FOX News learned Guy Barattieri's full name for the first time when they read his obituary.

To FOX News journalists, Bear was a protector. He worked with FOX as a guard in their Baghdad bureau, leading their large security team when that office was attacked with a cement mixer full of explosives last year.

A 1992 West Point graduate, Barattieri first served in the regular Army infantry before becoming a Green Beret and serving with the 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) at Fort Lewis.

After leaving active duty as a captain, Barattieri became a citizen-soldier in August 2000 with the state National Guard's Special Forces outfit in Buckley, which is east of Tacoma. From August 2001 to 2004, he was a Seattle police officer in civilian life, and he was elected president of his police academy class.

Barattieri went on active duty in 2002 as a Special Forces detachment commander in Kuwait. In March 2003, his team led the 101st Infantry Division on its march to Baghdad. Barattieri received a Bronze Star and Combat Infantryman's badge for his role.

He was killed when a roadside bomb while traveling to a power plant near Baghdad. He leaves behind a wife and two children.

Song Of The Day

If you've been with me long enough, you will know that I love music. Hell, I even credit it with saving my life. I blog about it all the time with album reviews, the now defunct Sunday Blues. I even use to post songs for you all to download. Music plays such a huge role in our lives. We associate some of our biggest moments with music. Where am I going with all this? Only to draw your attention to a great song that I think you should check out. It's by Russell Watson off his album Encore called Where My Heart Will Take Me. Two things.

1) Yes, it is the theme to Star Trek Enterprise.
2) Yes, it has some of the cheesiest lyrics.
It's been a long road, getting from there to here.
It's been a long time, but my time is finally near.
And I can feel the change in the wind right now. Nothing's in my way.

But don't let those things keep you from taking a listen. It's a fantastic song. Watson is more of an operatic singer, but he does other styles. Just check it out and see if you like it.

The Future Of Iraq

Newly empowered Democrats say they will push a phased pull-out from Iraq to begin in 4-6 months. And you know what? I agree.

Democrats & Terrorism

Newsweek has released a new mess of polls. Everything from Bush's new approval ratings to what Americans think of the Dem win last Tuesday. But the one I'm focusing on is in the last paragraph.
Another 69 percent said they were concerned that the new Congress would keep the administration "from doing what is necessary to combat terrorism," and two-thirds said they were concerned it would spend too much time investigating the administration and Republican scandals
A majority of the country think the Democrats will not properly fight the War On Terror. Let's hope we're wrong.

In Case You Missed It

Two men in California were nabbed by police for robbing a cigarette store after they left the packages to their ghost masks in the car. Scooby-Doo and the rest of the gang were unable to be reached for comment.

A Florida man, trying to run from cops, ended up driving through the home of a couple down the street
. Hey, buddy, for the last time, we don't sell hamburgers here. McDonald is our last name.

Tragic news. A cow in Australia was killed after it decided to go swimming. For four hours. Now, Bessie, you know with your four stomachs you have wait longer after eating.

One of the strangest stories I've read in a while. A Russian doctor has launched a new business. Individually tailored condoms
. There's a dirty joke here about watching your money grow, but it won't be made by me.


Irony and luck, all rolled up into one. A Florid man is alive today because the Bibles he was carrying in his pocket stopped the bullet. The word of God actually save this man's life. Dude.

This weeks Darwin Award was kind of hard to hand out. I had some really good candidates.

The runner(s) up are Monica Nicholson & the Macon County Sheriff's department. Ms. Nicholson was arrested on charges of fraud after writing some bogus checks. All well and good. But she for some reason didn't want to stay in jail. So she tried to post bail with a cashier's check that was, you guessed it, fake. There's runner up number one. Here's runner up number two. The Macon County Sheriff's department then accepted the fake check. Did no warning lights go off for anyone down there?

And the coveted Darwin Award this week goes to two people this week.

Aldrich Ross Peck of Shandon, California. For some unknown reason Mr. Peck was so pissed off at a man named Ronald Leroy Sleeper that he decided to play chicken with Mr. Sleeper while he was on his motorcycle. Problem was that Mr. Peck didn't have a bike of his own. No, instead he decided to stand in the middle of the road with an ax. What's that saying? Never bring a knife to a gun fight. Well, never stand in the middle of the road when a 400-lbs. mass of steel is coming right at you because bad things will happen.

And this unidentified British man. Seems this guy loves Guy Fawkes just a little too much. So, to celebrate his plot to bomb the British Parliament this man decides it will be a fitting tribute to stick a firecracker up his ass and light it. Yeaaaah.... So, as you can imagine, it didn't turn out so well. But it's not all bad news. His buddies did got some wicked wallpapers for their cell phones.

A Veterans Day Thank You

Today is Veterans Day. A day in which we give our thanks to the men and women who have fought and died in the name of America and freedom. As I was thinking about this post I tried to come up with some elaborate way to say thank you. But would it have been enough? How do you give a proper thanks to someone who is willing to leave everything and everyone they love to go through the hell known as boot camp? How do you give a proper thanks to someone who goes off to a hell known as a war zone to fight for someone else's freedom? How do you give a proper thanks to someone who is willing to step in the line of fire to save the life of their "brothers"? I don't think you can. So then, how do I give thanks to the men and women of the United States military? The only way I know how. By saying Thank You.

The Sick Mind Of Hatred

Credit: John K

Let's hope the Democrats, now that they will be in charge of Congress, will remember the type of enemy we're facing.

And to go along with that, I can't help but wonder about the situation in this country. 30 plots with 1,600 people. I would be willing to bet it's much worse here.

Democrats & Blacks

I landed on "The Colbet Report" last night, so I decided to watch what they were showing. It was comedian Tim Meadows walking through Harlem posing as a Black Republican named P. K. Winsome asking people if they were going to vote in last Tuesdays election. And if so, would they vote Republican. A resounding "No" was the general consensus. I know they were making fun of Black Republicans, but he brought up some good points that some who were being interviewed were shocked to hear. Like how it was Democrats that started the KKK. And it was Democrats who were sicking police dogs on protesters in the 60's. It's sad more people don't this stuff. Ever since FDR was elected President, Black people in this country have been brainwashed. And Democrats in Washington love this. Think about it. Democrats have been "fighting" for them for years, and where are they? Are they equal with Whites? A Black man and a White man have the exact same job. Who do you think makes more? So, really, what have the Democrats done for Black people except train them to think that it's been Republicans who've been oppressing them and for many years had them believing that it was the Government's job to take care of them?
