Another (Really Big) Thorn in the Side of the ACLU

Happy to announce a new addition to the blogroll. Jay stopped in to say hi. He also invited me to check out his work. So, I did. All denizens are hereby commanded to go and check out Jay's place, Stop the ACLU. You'll be happy you did, because somebody's got to.

Just A Reminder

In case anyone had forgotten how close we really are, to becoming what we fought so long and gave so much to prevent. Yet, despite the best efforts of a few great people, we are closer and closer to becoming what we hate. And idiots like this are simply drooling at the prospect.

Careful my friends.

Oh God Please...Not Again...

I can't even put into words how I felt when I read this.

Jonah and Nicole Payne, 3 and 2, were found dead about 12:15 p.m. Monday just a few hundred yards from their lakeside house, according to Georgia Bureau of Investigation (search) spokesman John Bankhead.

"They were positively identified by the father," Bankhead told reporters in a brief news conference Monday afternoon. "This has turned into a death investigation from a missing persons investigation. There's not much more I can say."

It was not immediately known whether the youngsters were the victims of foul play or just an accidental drowning, according to Bankhead, who said autopsies were planned for Tuesday morning.

A road from the house the children lived in with their parents leads directly to the 1 1/2-acre, bacteria-filled sanitation pond where their bodies were discovered, he added.

Green algae had made it difficult to see the children when authorities first searched the pond over the weekend, Bankhead said, but a second look Monday revealed a bulge in the algae that turned out to be one of the toddler's bodies. The other was found nearby.

The pond — part of the city's sanitation system — is surrounded by a fence. But the fence has several holes where a child could easily get through.

Authorities said Nicole needed a breathing machine daily and her brother was on medication for an unspecified condition.

The children were reported missing Saturday evening after last being seen at their Warren County (search) home, in east Georgia about 100 miles from Atlanta.

The mother had told police she was in another room Saturday and emerged to find the front door open and the tiny siblings missing. She reported their disappearance to authorities early Saturday evening.

Earlier the same day, the little girl had managed to unlock the locked door and escape with her brother about 4 p.m. but a neighbor found the toddlers and they were returned a half hour later, according to Police Chief Jim McClain. Nicole had figured out how to unlock the front door and would do it when no one was around, he said.

The exact circumstances of the disappearance of the little girl and her brother were not known. It was "way too early" to determine how long the children had been dead, said Bankhead.

Before the tragic discovery, polygraphs were being used in the investigation, according to Bankhead — who did not elaborate on whether the parents were suspects or who was given a lie detector test.

"There have been more than one polygraph administered," Bankhead said before the children's bodies were found.

The mother, Lottie Kain, reportedly took a polygraph test Sunday but the results have not been released. Kain is engaged to Dennis Payne, the father of the children.

Kain was also questioned by authorities Sunday evening and the search was temporarily halted at that point.

The family does not have a history of abuse involving the children.

Bankhead also said Monday that authorities had already checked into the possibility that a sex offender in the neighborhood had abducted and killed the toddlers. There have been several recent abductions and murders of children in Florida, Georgia and other states at the hands of convicted sex offenders living in the area.

"They ruled that out very quickly," Bankhead told reporters. "That's one of the first things they've checked."

The children's disappearance shocked and saddened people in Warrenton (search), a town of narrow, two-lane roads known mostly for the sweet potatoes at Jane's Restaurant.

Stephanie Johnson, walking with her 22-month-old daughter, Ella, said she had been praying for the family.

"There's a part of me that wants to stay inside all day, but then I remember that this kind of thing doesn't happen in a small town like this," Johnson said.

FOX News' Jonathan Serrie, Catherine Donaldson-Evans and The Associated Press contributed to this report.


Uhm, all I can say is...eeewww..

Oh, and yeah, it's actually pretty cool. I mean, once you get past the disgusting part. Really, who wouldn't want to stand around and watch toads explode.

What? No takers??

On to Happier Thoughts....

I have a confession to make. It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of the LoTR trilogy (btw, the books were better...but the movies were still great). But see, I'm also a fan of another great fantasy saga. I have a confession to make. I'm really just a big geek inside, and I'm a huge fan of the works of Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman. Most specifically, the Dragonlance Legends and Chronicles series. Yeah, I know...I'm a big dork for getting into that DnD crap...but when you're an Omnipotent All Powerful Overlord you can read whatever the hell you like;P Anyways, I've stumbled across a fan site dedicated to convincing someone to make a movie of these two trilogies (which I believe would be most excellent). They even took a poll to see who the fans would like to see play the lead rolls. I was less than impressed with some of the results, but check it out. I'd like to know what anyone else thinks, later I'll post my thoughts about who should play the leads.

Oh Sweet Jesus...

What type of sick, sadisitic human being piece of rat excrement could do something like this? How depraved do you have to be to commit this type of act? I always believed that child molestors were as bad if not worse than murderers. Now I just think they're worse. The only solace in this story is that if you believe in Hell (and I most certainly do) then you know that somewhere in the lowest, hottest, most torterous pit there is a special place waiting for this son of a bitch. I for one can't wait to hear his cries of agony as he eternally burns and begs for a death that will never come.

Here We go Again

Another "I hate walmart" club. Yet another example of people hating something/someone for being succesfull. Check it out. The eye inside the barcode on the corner is really creepy, eh?

Like I've said before, I used to work at Wally World. The pay was pretty good, (I was just a grunt, not management), and the benefits were great. If folks there don't like it, they are more than welcome to go somewhere else. It is after all still a free country (for the moment anyway). What really disturbes me is that so called right thinking weblogs/sites are allowing this group to advertise on their pages. I'm all for capitalism, but man you've gotta take a stand somewhere.

Better Late Than Never

I didn't post anything about the 10 year anniversary of the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City yesterday because, quite simply, I don't think I could've put down words to do it justice. But others did. One of them was Ogre, who also reminds us about another tragic incident in America's not so illustrious Clinton years.

I Was Just Wondering

You know, I've always said I don't like labels, and I don't like to label myself politically. But to be honest, I've always kind of wondered where I actually landed. Where I "belong" if you will. I always just kind of thought of myself as stuck somewhere between a true conservative and a libertarian. I never really completely identified with either one, so I just went with what I believe. Now it seems finally as though I may actually fit in somewhere and I was just wondering if anyone else out there considered themselves a South Park Conservative?

You Make Too Much Money

Uh huh!! It's true. You didn't know? Well it must be true, they said so over at the Democratic Underground. You make too much, nobody's worth that much.

On a side note, in a strange twist of irony...they complain that they didn't get a big enough raise.

I'm by no means rich, or even moderately wealthy (yet). But I greatly look forward to the day when my hard work and diligence pays off and I can count myself among these individuals. When I do finally get there, through my own hard work and diligence, I don't need some jackass telling me I don't deserve it cuz they don't make that much. BTW, I just started with a new company about 8 weeks ago and just got raise that comes out to about 14%. I got because of hard work and diligence. Stick that up your moonbat butts, jackasses.

Double Standard

So let me get this straight. You can throw pies at a conservative lady while she's exercising her first amendment rights and it's ok. You can toss salad dressing at a (some may say fanatically, myself included) conservative guy and get a small slap on the wrist. But spit on a traitor and you go directly to jail. Do not pass go etc..

In my opinion, all three of these incidents are akin to assault and should be treated as such. Now, honestly, I sympathize with the vet spitting on ole' Hanoi Jane more than I do the others. Coulter and Buchanan were simply speaking after being invited. When Jane did was out and out treason. It was however assault, and he deserved what he got (so did she though and then some). I just wanna know what the deal is with the double standard on the left. Where are the liberals condemning acts of aggression by their kin? Yeah, that's what I thought.....

Note To Self

Always, always, ALWAYS, when working on your drier make sure the power supply is disconnected. Ouch. Excuse me please, I'm going to go lie on the floor and finish my convulsing now.

Friday, April 15, 2005


You know, I never get tired of typing that. Just kinda rolls off the fingers...WTF...huh, what...oh yeah...sorry...

I don't even know what to say about this, but I'm pretty sure I don't wanna know what these people were trying to find.

A Brave New World...

There's a fine blog in the blogosphere, known as Liberal Utopia, which begs the question..."What your world would be if everything liberals wanted, they got?"

Here's your answer: A Brave New World.

The movie was made in 1998, though I just got around to watching it last night. Like another movie, Animal Farm, ABNW isn't about acting or plot, but substance. And it delivers in my opinion. It wasn't meant to win any awards, and didn't (as far as I know)...but it's message was perfectly clear. Check it out, especially if your a Nimoy fan.

So Much for Capitalism

I've been having problems with my garbage pick up lately. Well, since we've moved here actually. The problem was that sometimes they would pick up my trash, and sometimes they wouldn't. Sometimes they would take some of it and sometimes all. For some reason I never made the connection about whether or not it was in a can or not. Anyway, I finally got around to calling the utility company the other day. Here's a basic rundown of how the conversation went.

them: "thank you for calling blah-biddy blah"

me: "Yes, you guys aren't always getting my trash, I was wondering why not?"

them: "Is it in a bag?"

me: "Uh, yeah"--(I thought that was a silly question myself but I suppose they have to get all the information they can...)

them: "Is it in a trash container?"

me: "Yeah, usually."

them: "That's the problem."

me: "What do mean 'That's the problem?"

them: "The collectors won't pick it up if it's in a trash can."

me: (thinking that was rather silly)"Why not?"

them: "It's against policy"

me: "Why?"

them "It just is, sir. I'm not really sure why."

me: "But there are a lot of stray animals around here I don't just leave the bags out because they tend to tear the trash apart."

---NOTE---The stray animal thing is another issue. It's not like I live out in the backwoods, I live in a nice subdivision. I just have a few neighbors that don't watch their animals.

them: "I'm sorry sir, they won't pick it up if it's in a can."

---NOTE---At this point most rational people would have left it at that and begun thinking of another solution. But I'm rarely a rational person. If I'm not getting the service that I feel I'm paying for, I wanna know why.

me: "Well are they gonna pick up the trash off the ground when the strays strew it out all over the yard and street?"

them: (Obvious answer)Well, no sir I'm afraid not."

me: (Getting really agitated)So you're telling me that I can't put it in a trash can, but if the animals get into they won't pick it up either?"

them: "Well, sir...why dont' you just try waiting until right before the pick up truck gets there and then take it out?"

---NOTE---At this point, I'm beyond irritated, and that was just the wrong thing to say to me at this time.


them: "Sir, you don't have to be a jerk, it's not my fault."

me: (calmly again)"Let me speak to your supervisor."

them: "Excuse me?"

me: "Your supervisor please, I'd like to talk to him."

them: "My supervisor?"

me: (quickly irritated again)"Yeah, your S-U-P-E-R-V-I-S-O-R. You do have a boss don't you?"

them: (in an obnoxiouse tone)"One moment sir."

super: "This is blah-biddy, can I help you."

me: "Yeah, I wanna cancel my garbage service."

super: "Excuse me?"

---I then explained the previouse encounter, after which he affirmed the garbagemen/women would not pick up my trash in a container.

me: "So I wanna cancel my garbage service, and just pay the water." (My water and garbage are on the same bill) If I have to go through all that trouble anyway I'll just buy a permit and take my trash to the city dump myself."

them: "Well sir, I'm afraid we can't do that."

me: "Excuse me?"

them: "Well, the two services are on one account. If we cancel the garbage we have to cancel the water service also. There's no way around it I'm afraid." (sounding very uppity)

me: "So you mean to tell me I have no choice but to pay for a service that I can't/won't use?"

them: (In an incredibly obnoxiouse tone)"Well, yes sir. Only if you want to keep your water on."

me: "Okay, who can I complain to about this?"

them: "Well, I'm the supervisor...."

me "Okay, who's your boss?"

them: "Well sir...they're gonna tell you the same thing...."


---He gives me some contact information---

them: "There, is there anything else I can do for you sir?" (not said in a friendly customer service voice)

me: (Well beyond the highest level of pisstivity) "Yeah, tell your wife and my kids I said hi. Hey did you know you're wifes toes curl when she has an orgasm....I didn't think so."

---The lovely Mrs. wasn't too thrilled about that last comment as you can imagine---

So, basically I' screwed. I'm using a public utility with no competition. Not only can I not take my business elsewhere because of crappy service, but I have to continue paying for a service I don't even want anymore. Geez, I thought this was America....communism anyone? Because this is what the liberals want. The socialization of just about everything. See, to them competition is a bad thing. You think we live a free capitalist society my friends? Think again. They're slowly winning one service at a time. And they're a whole lot closer to their goal than you care to think. Sleep well my friends.

Sometims Life Just Doesn't Seem Fair

I had to bury my cat today. It sucked. My kids took it pretty hard. My oldest found it and that was really bad. I had to leave work early to come home and take care of it. As a general rule, I usually don't like cats. I can't stand the attitude they have. But you know what they say, every rule has an exception and "Lil' Bit" was the exception. He didn't have that "No as a matter of fact I don't recognize you as the dominant species on the planet.". This cat was beyond cool. Completely laid back, affectionate (but not so affectionate he drove you nuts). He got along with my dog, and he was cool with the kids. Crap, I'm gonna miss that cat. He was only a year onl. Sometimes life just isn't fair.

My kids asked me if they would see him in Heaven. I had a hard time answering that one. I constantly hear that animals don't have souls. But how can they not? They're self aware, have (very basic) emotions. How can something that is alive not have a soul? I guess that's a question that'll have to wait to be answered.

What's Up With That?

I'm a good conservative. I (usually) vote republican. I donate my time to Haliburton. I make fun of the hippies/commies/socialists. So why am I paying $2.15 for a gallon of gas? Where's my free petro? Guess the war really wasn't for oil after all....

Who in the blue hell are you and how did I come up as number 2 in the search? I suppose maybe it's time to cut down on the word "doucebag" perhaps?

We Are Not Amused.....

There's only one thing I hate more than April Fool's Day. I hate, I hate, I hate daylight savings time. It's nothing more than a cruel joke on the people forced to comply with it. A diabolical, twisted plot to keep me from getting my much need beauty sleep. Daylight savings makes me cranky. Like I said, we are not amused.

This is absolutely laughable.

BRUSSELS, Belgium - The European Union head office said Thursday it will seek to impose additional sanctions of up to 15 percent on U.S. products to punish Washington for failing to repeal an antidumping law ruled illegal by the World Trade Organization.

The European Commission said its action would be joined soon by seven other nations, including Japan, South Korea and Brazil, which had all requested the WTO authorize retaliation.

The EU's move would slap additional duties of up to 15 percent as of May 1 on such U.S. products as paper, textiles, machinery and farm produce. The European Commission's proposal still needs to be approved by the EU member states.

Targeted items ran from writing pads to sweetcorn, tablecloth and sports footwear.

The EU said that according to the latest information, the level of retaliation would amount to slightly less than $28 million.

The agency said it took its latest step "in light of the continuing failure of the United States to bring its legislation in conformity with its international obligations."

The 25-nation EU has long asked for Washington to repeal the 3-year-old legislation and the Bush administration has been working with Congress to bring it into line with its obligations. Yet the EU executive Commission said it was time to bring further action.

The Geneva-based WTO first ruled the U.S. legislation illegal in 2002 and gave the United States until the end of 2003 to conform. When it didn't, the eight complainants were given the option late last year to impose sanctions.

"The EU understands that Canada will be announcing retaliatory measures against certain products from the United States and expects that other co-complainants will soon join it in applying retaliation," the EU head office said.

The other complainants are Brazil, Chile, India, Japan, South Korea and Mexico.

The law, known as the Byrd amendment, allows American companies to receive proceeds from antidumping duties levied on foreign rivals.

It was approved in 2000 and in four annual distributions, over $1 billion has been distributed to such industries as steel and metal producers and food and household items.

The European Commission said there were no negotiating meetings with U.S. officials planned ahead of the May 1 deadline.

Here's an idea. Let the crooked ass little pansies in at the U.N. sanction us. Then, whatever the dollar amount of the sanctions comes to, we simply subtract that from what we already contribute. In fact, since the U.N. is into retalitory actions, we should reduce funding by half of whatever their "sanctions" cost us. Let them squirm with that for a while. Then, when they come back begging for an apology, withdraw from the U.N. completely and see how long they last. The U.N. is a useless organization anyhow. Left to their own devices, Sadaam would still be in power, and shit like this is still going on and they do nothing about while they preach about peace and human rights. Without the U.S., the United Nations is just a toothless aging dog with a lot of bark. It's an impotent organization and we are it's Viagra.

Jane Fonda Admits to Treason

After more than 30 years Jane Fonda has come out and said her trip with the North Vietnamese was a betrayal. A betrayal? Try treason you retard. If you ask me it's 30 years too late. That treacherous pinko commie bitch can take her apology (actually, she didn't apologize did she?), and cram it up her "peace at all costs" ass. I'm ain't interested and I know a good many Veterans of the Vietnam War who aren't interested either.

NEW YORK — Jane Fonda (search) says her 1972 visit to a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun site, an incident that brought her the nickname "Hanoi Jane," (search) was a "betrayal" of American forces and of the "country that gave me privilege."

"The image of Jane Fonda, 'Barbarella,' Henry Fonda's daughter ... sitting on an enemy aircraft gun was a betrayal ... the largest lapse of judgment that I can even imagine," Fonda told Leslie Stahl in a "60 Minutes" interview that will air Sunday night.

Fonda, whose memoir "Jane Fonda: My Life So Far" (search) comes out next week, said she did not regret meeting with American POWs in North Vietnam or making broadcasts on Radio Hanoi.

"Our government was lying to us and men were dying because of it, and I felt I had to do anything that I could to expose the lies and help end the war," she said.

Also on "60 Minutes," Fonda acknowledged that she had participated in sexual threesomes, at the encouragement of her first husband, French film director Roger Vadim (search).

She said she consented because, "I felt that if I said no, that he would leave me and I couldn't imagine myself without him."

Treasonous fucking douchebag.
