Football Fever

I'm getting a case of football fever. I'm checking out pollls, reading little stories here an there trying to gleen any amount of information that might give me an edge in predicting what will happen in college ball this year.

Here's what I have so far:

My beloved Gators are getting screwed. They have the toughest schedule in NCAA DIvision I ball and they get no respect. Fuck Charlie Weiss. Sure, that was sweet of him to let the dying kid call a play last year, but BFD. Their 9-3 schedule wasn't as good as UF's since Florida played a tougher schedule (it has something to do with not being a Yankee pussy). I'm pissed the Harris Poll has them at 17th. WTF? That's just sour fucking grapes.

OU isn't as good as their fans want them to be. Honestly, they never are. They just get lucky with bumps in teh polls based on program history (Lee Corso aside). I see them going 8-5.

Texas still sucks. And Mack Brown is the spawn of Satan.

USC should be given the death sentence. They played dirty ball for too many years and frankly it chaps my hide that Pete Carroll got away with fucking Matt Leinhart over. It's pretty damn sad when you have to lie to your QB to get them to stay. Hey, Pete. Just how many fingers do you like in your ass?

Louisville is the most underrated team in the nation. They have good strength of schedule and solid mechanics. I think they'll take the BCS over West Virginia. Honestly, they deserve it after so many solid seasons in recent years. Plus, we never hear any bitching and moaning from them like we do Les Miles' pussy ass team known as the LSU Tigers (may they rot in hell).

Look for Notre Dame's Brady Quinn to fuck Chris Leak out of his Heisman. Chris has better career numbers and has had to overcome Ron Zook (may he also rot in hell). Hopefully Urban Renewal will continue this year and Chris will get the explosive season he is capable of while kicking OBC's ass.

Katherine Harris- A Candidate for the Special Olympics Posterchild

It's bad when your name is the equivilent of being totally batshit. I'm starting to feel sorry for KH because everyday, there is a new story of how utterly dishonest, egomaniacal, spoiled, impetuous, arrogant, uninformed, and bigoted this bitch is. She's an absolute joke. I don't know why (other than the obvious comedic value of course) people still report on her. Take today's story on her interview with a Baptist publication wherein she dicks with the Constitution in a major way in an effort to curry favor with fringe voters. That bitch jumped the shark a longtime ago, too bad she's still holding a congressional seat for Florida. She should be recalled for being mentally deficient. Hell even Strom Thurmond was more mentally competent, and the man shat himself during votes on the floor for the last 30 years that he was there while whistling Dixie.

I'm so ashamed of my home state. I'm starting to believe that when I moved away the IQ of the whole state went down 90 points.

All I can say at this point is "Please somebody get her some lithium. Stat."

Ps- If you want a shirt, go here.

Clerical Error My Ass

Saw this story about how the Department of Education's list of acceptable majors for low-income students seeking financial aid for their education is missing a listing. Out of the tons of listings (and there are plenty), the only one missing is evolutionary biology. You know- the study of all things abominable to theocrats. Even odder is in my search online for goooood BBQ to have shipped in (I get cravings for this type of shit. Maybe sometime I'll write about my three day quest for XXX hot sauce.) is that I ran across the website for Sonny Bryan's BBQ in Dallas. I read the history page and discovered "Sonny" was actually William Jennings Bryan, Jr.. Naturally, I was like "Whoa. Not the son of......" And for the record, no, not the same one, but I did get a quick 15 minute refresher into a force of personality and a great modern historical-religious figure.

I have to say this- I admire WJB. I don't agree with all of his political or any of his religious stances, but I admire his populist roots. I admire grassroots politics where every man has one vote and his vote is worth (to himself and others) the same as the next guy. I admire his drive to dismantle the machine which relegates one man to poverty and another to wealth. I admire his stated cause of busting corporate monoploys which kill the soul of the common man and ensurre that he and his children and their children will never realize the "American Dream." I don't like the anti-rinking thing at all. I like my beer and Tuaca.

I admire fiery speeches and passion. WJB had that in spades obviously. And with that passion came the courage of his convictions. I've oft (yes, I use that word in everyday conversation) wondered if he died as a result of the Scopes Monkey Trial. Let's face it, Clarence Darrow eviscerated him. He tore apart the very foundations upon which WJB's progressive politics were perched- a belief in God and strict adherence to the Bible. When that foundation was destroyed, it would be easy to see how such a powerful, impassioned man could become literally lifeless.

My politics are an odd mix of progressivism and libertarianism. I hate rigid structure and rules meant to maintain the status quo as opposed to define real and necessary boundaries. Maybe that's why I'm in private practice. Or then again, a better and truer way of looking at it is that is why I AM NOT with a firm or governmental agency. And why I won't ever run for office again (not that the last time counted- I was playing the goon.). I could run for office early next year but my hubby opposes it (which makes me want to do it more) and frankly, I'd have to give up my blog.

I say fuck that.

This is my place for rants and rememberance. I can think about the legacy of WJB, bitch about Dumbya and still compare notes about why Marc Cohn is one of the best song writers in the last 25 years (at least since Jim Croce's death). I always find myself a bit more peaceful after letting it hangout here which I'll get back to now.

The Department of Education's excuse is complete and utter bullshit. Someone whited it out because it might offend the Jesus freaks. Fuck 'em. Religion has no place in education unless it's a philosophical survey of religious philosophy, a part of a sociology class dealing with group behavior, or a fiction class and the texts are being studied for content and friggin' alliteration type shit. Otherwise, it interferes with honest intellectual thought derived from scientific method, etc.. The person responsible should be drawn and quartered in the court of public opinion. This should be a front page story everywhere, but it won't be. Jonbenet Ramsey will be.

She's been dead for 10 years, but I suspect real journalism and real thought have been dead much longer in this country.

Somebody! Please Stop This Man!

This weekend, I was reflecting on how naive I was when I started college (truly, I was) and how cynical I have become over the years. We're talking about a mere 15 years almost to the day. But in that 15 years, the Internet has become more readily available, I've been streaking half a dozen or so times, loved and lost, had some amazingly weird (and wild) experiences, and generally just learned that "Who Gives A Fuck?!?" should be everyone's motto. I have older (and seemingly wiser) friends who are astounded by how much they learn from me everytime we hang out. Honestly, I thought I had seen and heard just about everything (Donkey punch? Check. Triorchidism? Check. Water sports? Check? Copralagnia? Check. Butt Blaster? Check. Americans electing a retard? Check.), but this story astounded me.

Seriously. How can this guy go through with this? How???????? There are so many people who would pay $5 a piece to see this. He could be the only guy in the world to do DP scenes by himself. He could make wax molds of himself and be on every wall in Doc Johnsons.

Please, god. Someone stop him!!!!

Can We Say: "This Guy Charges Too Much?"

I fucking hate egghead attorneys with fancy offices and egos the size of well... pick something rather large for you to imagine. Ron Jeremy sized or better....

I have a client involved in a minor divorce. Her mother is not well and she asked me to give up all of her claims in an effort to get to another state quickly to help her mother without worrying about this. I advise her she's giving up some very good claims and prepare a decree based on her agreement with the soon to be ex. Time is of the essence so I send it via e-mail to the other attorney. The first decree had a minor typo so I fixed the typo and re-sent it within five minutes of sending the first proposal. Both are 180 degrees different from the proposal we offered last month to which I never receieved a response.

Here's the exchange with actual names changed of course:

Mr. Pighead,

Please find the attached Decree and Consent for your client's signature. It should reflect all of the agreements of our clients. If changes are necessary, please let me know posthaste as my client must leave the jurisdiction in the very immediate future to help care for her terminally ill mother.

If you can please forward the executed documents to me, I will have my client attend the waiver docket with Judge L**** upon the first available day and forward the final order to you.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

The Raving Badger

There was minor typo in the Decree so I sent:

Piggy, please find the corrected Decree attached hereto.


Then I get:


As I have told you previously, my client is not going to sign off on a Decree that requires him to pay your client's bills incurred as a result of the Lake Whatchutahatchee accident. In addition, my client is entitled to 1/2 of your client's 401K contributions during the course of their marriage. Our previous settlement offers still stand. I will be serving you in the next day or two with some written discovery. I am going to want to know what kind of 401K contributions your client has made since the date of her marriage to my client, the amount of her medical bills incurred and still outstanding as a result of the accident in question, and other relevant questions.

If your client is willing to pay her own medical bills, we will agree to let her keep all of her 401K contributions. She cannot have her cake and eat it, too.


Note: He's referencing a proposed decree from 8 months ago which is much different that the finished product I sent to him yesterday. If he would have read it, he would have known that. So I reply:


You obviously have not spoken with your client or reviewed the corrected Decree. Please do so before getting haughty with me.

I hope you are not charging your client for wasting my time.


Then I get:

Haughty? I am going to add that word to my computer vocabulary list.

I looked closer at your proposed amended Decree after receiving your vituperative email. It appears to me that you are proposing that your client keep all of her 401K contributions. Your proposed revised Decree does not appear to make any mention of the $800 medical bill in question. However, the Decree does not provide that your client will indemnify and hold my client harmless from payment of your client's medical bills, including the $800 medical bill in question. I want the Decree to be clear that your client is responsible for the payment of her own medical bills and that she agrees to indemnify and hold harmless my client should he someday be required to pay some or all of her medical bills.

The way I read your proposed revised Decree, each party is responsible for paying his/her own taxes during the years of their marriage. This is also something I thought we agreed upon several months ago. The Decree reads that my client shall indemnify your client, but I do not read in the Decree where your client agrees to indemnify my client. We need that language in there.

If I am missing something in the Decree, it is an inadvertent oversight on my part, and I am not trying to waste your time or be haughty. However, in answer to your question, I am charging my client a great deal. I assume the work I am generating for you is also enabling you to pay generous Christmas bonuses to your employees this year.

So I reply:

Mr. Pighead,

My understanding of the agreement is that Plaintiff keeps all of her 401K, and Defendant pays his taxes. Her taxes are paid. He knows this. They have agreed that each pay bills in their own name (i.e. non-marital and marital). She is paying her own medical bills. All marital bills have been previously satisfied. Thus, there is nothing else to pay by either side except your ever increasing bill.

I love your $5 words, but don't try to change the agreement of the parties for purposes of increasing your billing. The proposed decree I have provided you with is fine. You are just trying merely to cover your tracks on not having reviewed it prior to sending me a nasty (and lengthy) e-mail. From your e-mail, it was clear you assumed we were still making the same offer from three weeks ago to which you never responded. I suggest you take fewer vacations and pay more attention as it is obvious you do not know what is going on at all between the parties or in your office.

I hope your client is aware of your mistake and poor attempt to cover for yourself when reviewing your billing. If you have a legitimate addition or deletion, then please feel free to reference it. Otherwise, sign the papers and let us be done with this matter.

Very truly yours,

The Raving Badger

Now, let's get this straight: He's sent 3 e-mails bitching about nothing and all over $800 (at $200 an hour). Boy, I wish my clients were stupid enough to pay me for tilting at windmills.

What a fuckwit.

I bet he voted Republican.

I Hate Bullies, and Bushies, Too

The main stream media outlets are finally picking up on George Allen's racist comments to a gentleman of foreign descent (it varies from site to site but his name implies he's either Indian or Pakistani and he's quite dark skinned). He called him a "macaca." Now, there are a lot of bloggers out there who say it's a variation of a French racial slur meaning the N-word, and Allen's saying it is a mishmash of "mohawk" (based on the guy's haircut) and "caca" a well known euphamism for shit or dung. Either way, Allen's a dickhead. He's either racist (which I believe he is by his long time support for all things of the Confederacy and his non-support for any civil rights issue) or he's an asshole.

No matter what Allen's supporters say, he publicly ridiculed the guy. Granted the guy was taping his speech, but he hadn't interupted anything or acted badly. Allen got rattled. The guy's presence and his enthnicity got under Allen's skin. How dare someone beneath me fuck with me?

He reacted poorly and publicly. This guy wants to be president and he can't keep his mouth shut??? He can't control his temper??? Great. I'm sure to the dumbass red staters out there he shows great promise to be commander in chief. It would be like having me as the mediator for global peace with Ronald Reagan in one seat and Rush Limbaugh in the other. Do you think I could resist fucking with either of them? Hell, no (I'd pay for the pleasure, frankly). Allen's not any different. He can't control himself well enough to play a game of Texas Hold 'Em for crissakes.

Interestingly, I read some excerpts from his sister's book on Huffington Post earlier today. Seems Allen is a real prick. He tortured his siblings, broke one's collar bone, threw one other through a plate glass window and dragged another up the stairs by her hair. Now I fought with my kid sister and we were pretty bad, but neither of us ended up bald or getting a healthy dose of radiation due to an x-ray machine. That kind of shit goes too far. It's serial killer kind of stuff. The guy's obviously a socio-path. I mean how could you not be with the Lee Press-On Hair?

Well, enough about the dumbass in Virginia. Let's get on to even less interesting topics like Dumbya. Joe Scarborough finally got up the nads to say Dumbya is an idiot and to question his intellectual capacity to perform his job.

About damn time. Did we have to elect the asshole twice in order to figure that out? Seriously. I figured that out years ago and I never had to actually listen to him speak. The whole issue makes me question how slow Joe is. Is Joe a candidate for the Special Olympics, too? Or is he just a cockmeister looking for ratings because his show sucks? I won't even get into his Lee Press-On Hair.

I still hate Bush and all things Bush. A lot, but my capacity to hate him with constant zeal is tested everytime a dickhead like Joe Scarborough jumps on the band wagon and acts like he was one of us all along. Prick.

One last thing- I may not need them, but I know some sisters who have to resort to false advertising. I just don't get the connection between falsies and the war on terror? Do you?

[UPDATE: The guy is from Virgina, born and raised. Allen is from- California. He moved to Virginia just a short time before his run for politial office. In the South, we call assholes like Allen carpetbaggers. I hope Mullet Boy kicks his ass.]

Anyone In DC Even Remember This Shit Anymore?

Or was it all a lie? A lie, I tell you. Liar, liar, liar....pants on fire.....


As Republican Members of the House of Representatives and as citizens seeking to join that body we propose not just to change its policies, but even more important, to restore the bonds of trust between the people and their elected representatives.

That is why, in this era of official evasion and posturing, we offer instead a detailed agenda for national renewal, a written commitment with no fine print.

This year's election offers the chance, after four decades of one-party control, to bring to the House a new majority that will transform the way Congress works. That historic change would be the end of government that is too big, too intrusive, and too easy with the public's money. It can be the beginning of a Congress that respects the values and shares the faith of the American family.

Like Lincoln, our first Republican president, we intend to act "with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right." To restore accountability to Congress. To end its cycle of scandal and disgrace. To make us all proud again of the way free people govern themselves.

On the first day of the 104th Congress, the new Republican majority will immediately pass the following major reforms, aimed at restoring the faith and trust of the American people in their government:

FIRST, require all laws that apply to the rest of the country also apply equally to the Congress;

SECOND, select a major, independent auditing firm to conduct a comprehensive audit of Congress for waste, fraud or abuse;

THIRD, cut the number of House committees, and cut committee staff by one-third;

FOURTH, limit the terms of all committee chairs;

FIFTH, ban the casting of proxy votes in committee;

SIXTH, require committee meetings to be open to the public;

SEVENTH, require a three-fifths majority vote to pass a tax increase;

EIGHTH, guarantee an honest accounting of our Federal Budget by implementing zero base-line budgeting.
Thereafter, within the first 100 days of the 104th Congress, we shall bring to the House Floor the following bills, each to be given full and open debate, each to be given a clear and fair vote and each to be immediately available this day for public inspection and scrutiny.

1. THE FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY ACT: A balanced budget/tax limitation amendment and a legislative line-item veto to restore fiscal responsibility to an out- of-control Congress, requiring them to live under the same budget constraints as families and businesses.
(Bill Text) (Description)

2. THE TAKING BACK OUR STREETS ACT: An anti-crime package including stronger truth-in- sentencing, "good faith" exclusionary rule exemptions, effective death penalty provisions, and cuts in social spending from this summer's "crime" bill to fund prison construction and additional law enforcement to keep people secure in their neighborhoods and kids safe in their schools.
(Bill Text) (Description)

3. THE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY ACT: Discourage illegitimacy and teen pregnancy by prohibiting welfare to minor mothers and denying increased AFDC for additional children while on welfare, cut spending for welfare programs, and enact a tough two-years-and-out provision with work requirements to promote individual responsibility.
(Bill Text) (Description)

4. THE FAMILY REINFORCEMENT ACT: Child support enforcement, tax incentives for adoption, strengthening rights of parents in their children's education, stronger child pornography laws, and an elderly dependent care tax credit to reinforce the central role of families in American society.
(Bill Text) (Description)

5. THE AMERICAN DREAM RESTORATION ACT: A S500 per child tax credit, begin repeal of the marriage tax penalty, and creation of American Dream Savings Accounts to provide middle class tax relief.
(Bill Text) (Description)

6. THE NATIONAL SECURITY RESTORATION ACT: No U.S. troops under U.N. command and restoration of the essential parts of our national security funding to strengthen our national defense and maintain our credibility around the world.
(Bill Text) (Description)

7. THE SENIOR CITIZENS FAIRNESS ACT: Raise the Social Security earnings limit which currently forces seniors out of the work force, repeal the 1993 tax hikes on Social Security benefits and provide tax incentives for private long-term care insurance to let Older Americans keep more of what they have earned over the years.
(Bill Text) (Description)

8. THE JOB CREATION AND WAGE ENHANCEMENT ACT: Small business incentives, capital gains cut and indexation, neutral cost recovery, risk assessment/cost-benefit analysis, strengthening the Regulatory Flexibility Act and unfunded mandate reform to create jobs and raise worker wages.
(Bill Text) (Description)

9. THE COMMON SENSE LEGAL REFORM ACT: "Loser pays" laws, reasonable limits on punitive damages and reform of product liability laws to stem the endless tide of litigation.
(Bill Text) (Description)

10. THE CITIZEN LEGISLATURE ACT: A first-ever vote on term limits to replace career politicians with citizen legislators.

Further, we will instruct the House Budget Committee to report to the floor and we will work to enact additional budget savings, beyond the budget cuts specifically included in the legislation described above, to ensure that the Federal budget deficit will be less than it would have been without the enactment of these bills.
Respecting the judgment of our fellow citizens as we seek their mandate for reform, we hereby pledge our names to this Contract with America.

As Grasshopper Would Say "Mwahahahahahah"

I watched the poll results for the Lamont-Lieberman race last night from a bar. Not only did I have cable TV, but I also had cellphone based Internet. had results up 10-20 minutes faster than FOX News (the only network carrying coverage consistently). I was happy with the results, of course, but not so happy with what a tool Lieberman was.

I can understand if he's unhappy about losing. I mean, what's an old asshole like him supposed to do now? Make Pepsi or Viagra commercials? Take Rummy's job? Let his wife the Big Pharma lobbyist support him as he attends bar mitzvahs for moollah like Ja Rule? I doubt it.

What he needs is a reality check. First, he lost the election by making his BS announcement that he'd run as an independent if he lost the primary. [Note to Holy Joe: the other kids don't like it if you threaten to take your crayons home if they don't let you play Malibu Barbie.] The poll results show it. Lamont went way, way up in the polls after Holy Joe made his threat. Oops.

Second, he needs to apologize for getting in bed with Bush and Rove. He has slammed the Democratic party repeatedly. Why? Because he has some fucked up idea locked in is head that he's absolutely right, that he knows best and that he's entitled to unquestioning trust in spite of the fact that he has been a DINO for a long, long time. Now, I am not saying he's a Republican (the point can be made he is), but I am saying his allegience isn't to his party or his state. or even his country. It's....wait for it..... TO ISRAEL. The utterances about national security and 9-11 recently prove that. It also proves he's grasping at straws and knows that he's not the Joe of yesteryear. It's all about the towelheads for him.

Look, Joe. Be mad at yourself. Be mad at Karl Rove. Be mad at AIPAC, but for crissakes don't take it out on everyone else who's just rightfully reminding you that you sold out. Take your lumps like man, you big fucking crybaby.

BTW- accusing Lamont and/or his supporters of hacking your weenie site is bad form. Apologize. Then beg for mercy from the Feds after they start looking to charge you and/or your campaign staff with submitting a false report. That shit carries jail time, fines, and the absolute death sentence for your public service career. Also, remember the next time you want to go World Wide Web, pay for the bandwidth and a decent hosting company. They hosed you pretty good. You might think about suing them for damages. You wanna be big time? Then act big time.


It just hit me that you wasted everything. You destroyed everything for Israel. Fuck. That's gotta suck.

Joe, time to move on. You need a new job. May I suggest.....

Oh, and one last thing- I am so right about Condi being on her way out.


Those fucking Rethuglicans eat their own. Don't they?

August 08, 2006

Condi Better Watch It

She's being set up IMHO. Why do I think so? This administation has gone out of it's way to portray a president in charge. From the dumb aircraft carrier photo op to him being a pushy asshole to foreign dignitaries to his frequent statements that he's in charge (so to speak). Now, with the Israeli-Hezbollah-Lebanon thing going nuts and Iraq becoming more and more explosive by the day (no pun intended), Bush has left very publicly for Crawford for more brush clearing. When asked if he thought it was okay to do that since Tony Blair didn't and put off his vacation, he said sure because Condi was in charge of that situation.

I see two meanings here with one being more probable than the other- they want his fingerprints off this SNAFU (admit it- the US is already fucked since the neocons have been supporting Israel's destruction of a soveriegn nation as a launching point for Syria and Iran) and they need a fall guy. Or, and this is less likely, they want Condi as a POTUS contender in '08.

Personally, I think they're going to dump Condi by November. Obviously foreign policy is a total fucking failure on all fronts (unless you count the sweatshop owners in the Northern Marianas Islands) and it cannot be the CIC's fault. Who better than Condi who played it how they wanted. They dumped Powell bc he wasn't a "yes man." Why should it save Condi for being a "yes woman?"

Answer: It won't. These assholes believe in nothing but self preservation. That's how they survived the backlash against McCarthy, Nixon and Watergate, Iran-Contra, etc.. They're the fucking cockroaches of the 20th and 21st centuries. They'll gut her and then send her on to some lucrative board like the Carlisle Group or Texaco or something like that. Then she'll turn up on FAUX News in a few years claiming expertise in a field she obviously has done very poorly in to date. It's like being the political equivilent of Ashley Simpson or something.

I just wish it was 2008 already and someone had a giant ass can of Raid.

iPod Lists

I like lists. All lists. I like iPod lists especially. I saw my 15 yo cousin's this weekend and had to tease her in front of hr mom and her mom's friends that the whole list was either about having sex, trying to have sex or how good someone was at either having or trying to have sex. You might have guessed it- it was all hip hop.

I like hip hop, but I like a lot of other stuff too. FI, I have the entire TimeLife Soul Collection on my iPod. I have Stevie Wonder's Greatest Hits. I have Aqualung's "Strange & Beautiful." I have hours upon hours of Ella Fitzgerald, Public Enemy, Blondie, Alan Jackson, every album the Indigo Girls ever made, Ministry, George Strait, New Order, Eminem, Neil Diamond's greatest hits, Green Day, Paul Simon, every solo thing Annie Lennox has ever done, lots of 80's hair bands, Public Image Limited, Queensryche, U2 (old stuff, not new), Montgomery Gentry, Johnny Cash, Depeche Mode, Marilyn Manson, Anita Baker, Fun Boy 3, Al Green, Dean Martin, the Ventures, White Stripes, Tracy Ullman, Avenged Sevenfold, The Killers, Fallout Boy, Aretha Franklin, The B-52's, Tracy Chapman, Styx, Damien Rice, The Cure, David Bowie, Def Leppard, Sugarland, Player, Crystal Method, Foo Fighters, Frou Frou, Gorillaz, Human League, Megadeth, Dixie Chicks, Dionne Warwick, Barry Manilow (all three greatest hist albums), Metallica and of course ZZ Top. I even have my smoking cessation hypnotherapy tracks and political interviews. There's more. So much more.

In hindsight, it's almost as if my iPod reflects my personality and how warped it is. A little bit of this, a lot of that. Not necessarily reflective of how one person or another views me, but none of it is fake. Every song on my iPod is for me to enjoy, not to impress some asshole who might see my playlist ala the Preznit. And everything on it reflects another facet of who I am or can be depending on my mood or environment.

I wish I had more contemporary jazz but that's about my only complaint about my playlist. Well, that and I wish I had a bigger iPod, but everybody thinks that....

I'm Avoiding the News

until tomorrow. So far, everything I've seen on TV this A.M. was depressing. As if my own life didn't suck enough, I have to watch the death and destruction in Lebanon and Israel. BTW- did you know there have been over 600 casulaties in Lebanon? Most were innocent civilians. Roughly 50 were Hezbollah. and then there's that report that Israel is leaving pockets of Hezbollah rockets, so they can can the moral high ground in still attacking Lebanon.

That's pretty sick, huh. It's like breaking someones fingers, one-by-one, and then putting a gun a few feet from them. You can still kick them or shoot them because ostensibly they have "access" to a weapon.

But at least Bob Ney is jumping out of the Ohio congressional race. He claims it is to save his family the hassle, but if that were the case, he wouldn't have taken bribes now would he???

Enjoy Monday and check out "The No Sin Zone." She makes me giggle.....

August 04, 2006

I Think I Found My Trigger

Or start-up button. I don't know why it finally dawned on me, but the reason my head is so screwed up is I haven't spent enough time recharging by listening to the Indigo Girls. I have "Retrospective" on right now which is their version of greatest hits. I'm feeling better already and I'm not through the first song (well, actually second since I don't care for "Strange Fire" so much. Sorry, but just I don't have a bunch of lesbian angst....). "Closer to Fine" may be best known as college indie hit, but it reminds me of my sophmore year and waiting for my best friend to get off work so we could go study for astronomy. Shit. Things were so much simpler....

Well, simpler than the stupid city council which is about to approve a liar and a social climber as municipal judges. Dumb asses.... I may take this to the paper.....

And on a much weirder note- last night or was it this morning... it dawned on me that I better start knocking out kids soon if I want two or else I may be high and dry. I'm still not sure I'm ready.

The Places My Mind Goes

So I am checking out as per my routine and I see Nora Ephron has written something again. The link's entitled "Nora Ephron: Reflections On The Results Of Bush's Annual Physical Examination…"

My immediate reaction is "What they're trying to figure out how he got his head so far shoved up his own ass???"

Come on. What else was I supposed to think?

August 01, 2006

I Knew I Was Right....

I'm starting to think I'm always freaking right. I wrote about the Cynthia McKinney thing afew months go and how it was utter BS for the Capitol Hill Police to say they didn't recognize her. Turns out there's more to the story and that the SCLM really screwed the pooch. There was a bigger story other than "Uppity Negress Slaps Christian White Man." Stoopid fuckers should have reported on the systemic racism in the police department and the historical pattern of mistreating African-American members of Congress. There have even been lawsuits for crissakes.

Fucking cocksuckers. I seriously hate racism. There's nothing dumber to me. It's as bad as..... miscogyny and homophobia and religious zealotry...... they're all about even in my book.

Anyhow- watch the video for yourself.
