Showing posts from July 10, 2005 - Transcripts: "WILSON: My wife was not a clandestine officer the day that Bob Novak blew her identity." were lying. Ok, good to know. Thanks Joe.
Daniel Pipes talks about Weak Brits, Tough French. He rightly points out that France is able to get away with things that no other country can do. How? I don't know. Perhaps it's because they are France and people assign to them some patina of respectablity because of their mythically great history of diplomacy. I like the French people. I've lived there, gone to school there and travelled there a number of times. However, they always elect the most wiley cagey, backstabbing, self-serving bastards. I wish we had elected leaders who were as nakedly advancing their own nation's interests. Hell, Bush is a piker compared to Chirac on that front. Even Pat Buchannan pales in comparison.
Roger L. Simon has the goods. ABC's credibility is hereby destroyed. If I were Fox News, I'd run this clip every hour on the hour for a year.
Bernard Golberg has a book about the 100 people screwing up America. Courtesy of Amazon, here's the list (bonus for my reader[s] are my ever-insightful comments)

Michael Moore
Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. He should be deported to the reddest of red states for all eternity.

Arthur Sulzberger
I can't decide if he's screwing up the NYT (and to a lesser degree, America) out of sheer cluelessness or mendacity. I'll assume the former. Given his age, he won't be around to screw either one up for much longer.

Ted Kennedy
How is this drunken zeppelin still alive? He must have an absolutely bulletproof liver. The only way to prevent the Massholes from re-electing this thing is for him to die. Even then they'd probably elect him. Ted Kennedy's cars have killed more people than the average American's guns.

Jesse Jackson
Thankfully, Jesse isn't what he used to be. Ever since the scandal with his mistress, he's been sidelined. He still uses his sha…
Bernie's List Part 2

Noam Chomsky
MIT professor, linguist and barking moonbat. Chomsky is totally insane which explains his popularity among leftists. He blames every evil in the world on America.

Dan Rather
Gunga Dan. Has had a personal vendetta against the Bush family when 41 outed him for his hissy fit when he walked off the air because a sporting event cut into his broadcast. Hoisted by his own petard when he tried to unseat the President w/ the fake TANG documents. Good riddance.

Andrew Heyward
President of CBS. 'nuff said.

Mary Mapes
Barking moonbat and part of the Rather team. Waged a 10 year campaign to try and smear 43. Instrumental in ending Rather's career (for that we thank her) as well as destroying her own.

Ted Rall
America hating cartoonist. Draws racist cartoons of Condi Rice and Colin Powell.

John Edwards
Empty headed and thankfully, unemployed. Did far more damage as a trial lawyer than he does now. AKA "the Breck girl"

Al Sharpton
Here is an article that utterly destroys both Wilson's credibility and any idea that Karl Rove did something illegal. Game. Set. Match.
Here is an amicus brief on behalf of every major news organization in the country explaining that Rove broke no laws and the whole thing is wishful thinking by Democrats. Concentrate on pages 5 and 7.
Froggy Ruminations has a moving tribute to his fallen comrades. Read the whole thing.
The New York Times occasionally gets it right. Here's one example. Intersting.
You Are 34 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

What Age Do You Act?

This one is MUCH closer
You Are 76% AmericanYou're as American as red meat and shooting ranges.
Tough and independent, you think big.
You love everything about the US, wrong or right.
And anyone who criticizes your home better not do it in front of you!
How American Are You?

Actually scored lower than I thought....
Debunking 8 Anti-War Myths About The Conflict In Iraq An absolute must read. I suspect war supporters are going to be fighting The Big Lie for many many years. When I'm old and gray, I'm sure they'll open up the archives to show all we know about Saddam, Iraq, Iran and Al-Qaeda.
A few observations today: (NB: some of the comments below are judgmental, insensitive, un-PC and so on. You have been warned)

It is a commonly accepted principle of our society that you keep to the right when walking. Why is this so hard to understand? What kind of ejit do you have to be to not know that?

The woman who sits next to me is wearing:
Black satin baseball jacket
pink & white striped shirt
Pink pedal pusher pants
white knee socks
white sandals.

Do you have a FRIGGING CLUE that you should wear that to the office? We are a FRIGGIN Fortune 50 COMPANY!

I cannot stand swishy effeminate men. I don't care if they're gay or straight but swishy and effeminate men drive me up the wall. That lispy voice makes me want to scream, "BE A MAN! ACT LIKE A MAN! TALK. LIKE. A. MAN."

(can you tell I'm cranky today?)

I have never worked at a place with a more useless, hapless helpdesk. Seriously, the people they have on the phone should simply log t…
I wrote this to a friend who's going to be doing some multi-month training in NYC. He's never really been and wanted some ideas about where to go/what to do. Below is the email I sent him. (I've cleaned up the links)

Off the top of my head:

1. South Street Seaport. Been there for 170 years and worth seeing. Here is the fisherman's bar I was telling you about. Seems they've moved. I loved the old place and can't speak on the new one as I've never seen it. Probably just as good as the old. If the Wall Street crowd and the Fishermen are still going, it's probably kept the atmosphere.
2. Central Park. Only during the day. At night the place is seriously dangerous
3. Bryant Park. Just down the street from Grand Central. A great place for lunch on a nice day or a drink after work
4. You must ride the subway. Doesn't matter where you go, just do it. It's part of being in NYC
5. Times Square. A mini-Vegas and always very animated. Hook…

The Tax Foundation - 1913 Internal Revenue Service 1040 Form

Four pages and one page of instructions. Tell me again why we cannot get flat tax or fair tax passed?
