New computer is here. Will have substantive post soon!
Archive for June, 2010
In case anyone has been reading the blog, and wondering where I am, I am still here. after a weeklong vacation at Orange Beach, Al, I came home, and my computer promptly crashed. Never fear, a new computer is on the way. It should be here soon. I am typing this with my phone. As I am the only living soul left on this planet without an iPhone, this is extremely tedious. regardless, if you have been reading, don’t give up on me. I shall return soon. I have a couple of posts planned. one will be my documentary on the Gulf oil spill, and my first attempt at a video game review. Keep your jackboots on, I’ll see you soon.
I’ll be on vacation for a week. I’ll be back, and I am working on a new shtick. See y’all next week.
According to the New York Slimes, the Obama regime doesn’t like the fact that Israel is defending itself. I’m not sure where to start on this steaming pile o’ whale pooh. I guess I should just get a scuba tank and a shovel and get to work.
The Obama administration considers Israel’s blockade of Gaza to be untenable and plans to press for another approach to ensure Israel’s security while allowing more supplies into the impoverished Palestinian area, senior American officials said Wednesday.
The blockade is untenable for whom? It appears Israel is quite capable of defending the blockade. Is it untenable for the Obama regime? God forbid Mr. Obama be inconvenienced by such trivial matters as an ally trying to stop the influx of weapons to a terrorist organization. We’ll need to put a stop to this right away. We can’t have rocketfiring savages short on rockets to fire at cafes and grade schools.
Hundreds of tunnels have shut down over the past year as a result of greater Egyptian efforts to stop the flow of goods – and weapons – into the strip. But the remaining tunnels, about 200 to 300 according to most estimates, have become so efficient that shops all over Gaza are bursting with goods.
Those poor, starving Palestinians. My heart weeps.
It seems neither Hamas, nor President Obama will be satisfied until Israel is destroyed. I guess having all those joooos in one place is just bad form.

…And by Piper I mean the news media who have done everything they can make sure liberals get elected.
So, we all know the dinosaur media, especially newspapers, are suffering financially. We all know that most main stream news sources lean so far to the left they’re about to fall over. It appears the elected liberals are getting ready to pay the news media back for their undying support.
I guess they figure the unholy alliance between news outlets and liberal politicians are largely responsible for the financial straits the dinosaur media are now navigating. Now the liberal politicians are goin’ down there and settin’ things a-right.
The Federal Trade Commission released a discussion paper in which they kick around ideas for saving the dinosaur media from extinction. They discussed monkeying with copyright laws, and fair use doctrine among other topics. But those aren’t the ones that frighten me. It would be these two in particular:
Representative Waxman noted at the FTC’s December 2, 2009 workshop that an“examination of the antitrust laws and whether changes there might be of assistance”had been raised as a possible response to the current difficulties facing the press and journalism.
This section first reviews the history of government subsidies and then presents proposals that have emerged to date to provide additional government funds to sustain journalism.
I don’t know about you, but increased government funding (read=government control) and allowing “news organizations” (at least the way I read it) the ability to engage in collusion and price fixing seems yabba-dabba-dubious to me.
To be fair, these are just ideas that the FTC is discussing. Still, it seems our government is preparing to offer the news media Faust’s deal.
There is an upshot to this though. How awesome would it be to see Katy Couric’s head spin around while she vomits pea soup on the news?

Show of hands, who wants some education in taser use? You don’t want education in taser use? Too bad, you’re about to get some.
While skimming through the taser news, I always come upon stories about “controversial” taser stuff. Most of it arises from ignorance about tasers, and when exactly they are supposed to be used. Here is a crash course:
TASERS DO NOT REPLACE DEADLY FORCE!!!!!!!!
That is all.

I want to make sure I get my facts correct, so help me out here, y’all. Palestinians have been firing rockets into Israel like it’s the national past time. Mom, hummus, rocketfiring, am I right? In response, Israel takes out some of those rocket sites, which happen to be top of schools and shit. Do I have it down so far? Then the media reports “Evil Joooos bomb school” but make no mention of the Palestinians firing rockets from the school. Correct me if I am wrong. Israel decides, “Hey, lets blockade those rocketfiring savages.” But, in an effort to appease those in the “world community” that treat rocket firing savages like they’re single moms with six kids, and leprosy, they figure, “Hey while we’re doing this blockade thing, we’ll allow humanitarian aid to come through as long as the ships are checked by the UN (AKA The Jooooo hater club), Egypt, or us. Am I good so far? So some “peace loving humanitarians decide to run the blockade like they’re Han frikkin Solo. Israel tells them ahead of time, “Dude, don’t.” They do it anyway, and when the Israeli military boards the vessel, they throw soldiers overboard, beat them with sticks, and generally act like you would expect rocketfiring savages to act. Are my facts straight to this point? In response to the soldiers being attacked, the rest of military guys whack several rocketfiring savages. Now the “World Community” is crying because Benjamin Netanyahu is a poopy head. That’s the way understand things, please correct me if I am mistaken.
Look, I understand that our president is an anti-Semite. So are most of the countries in the UN, but come on. Is there anyone who is not a Muslim that truly believes Israel did something wrong? Look at the video:

If you don’t want to be put down like a rabid animal, don’t act like one.
You know what really gets to me though? The only reason Israel hasn’t destroyed those knuckledragging, headchopping, rocketfiring savages is because the United States exerts diplomatic and financial pressure on Israel, yet the savages are pissed at the Unites States too. That’s how you know their calls for peace are bullshit.
I say let Israel take care of themselves, and if they go a little overboard, we tell them “Dude, not cool.” Maybe write them a strongly worded letter.
