Triple X Goldteeth

Mercy sh*t oh dear. Gold teeth. Diamonds. But most of all, spinners. You read that correctly: Spinning teeth.

It's the apocalypse. Sell your clothes.

FOXNews.com - U.S. & World - Old Gun Law Reaps New Benefits in S.F.

Here is where you find a core difference between pro-gunners and anti-gunners. Pro gunners believe that if you enforce the existing laws on the books, you have more than enough reason to put thugs in jail. Anti-gunners believe that more laws = more safety, completely disregarding the fact that dozens of laws already exist on the books to prosecute violent crime.

Now, why San Fransisco only recently started to use this "old" law is beyond me.

Astronomers Discover 'Hot Spot' on Saturn

Obviously, the occasional flyby of earth-born satelites is contributing to global warming at Saturn's southern pole. After all, if only mankind can create global warming on our planet, we must obviously be to blame for "the first such hot vortex ever discovered in the solar system."

Bush to Propose Tightest Budget of Presidency

It's about time.

Yahoo! News - School May Fire Professor for 9/11 Comment

I don't think this jack ass should be fired. He should be allowed to freely spout whatever tripe comes out his mouth. The rest of us can then learn from him what liberals think. Let him shout it out from the tallest building. He's just another Mikey Moore wanabe.

I think Churchill's biggest problem is that thanks to the blogosphere and the right wing hit machine on AM radio, he's not been allowed to get off cleanly with his BS.

Liberals aren't used to us fighting them back and it's a beautiful thing.

U.S. General Says It Is 'Fun to Shoot Some People'

How fortunate for General Mattis that he serves under President Bush and not President Clinton.

Immediately after these remarks, President Clinton would have ensured that the good General was run out of the Corps, but not before losing his rank, losing his retirement, and being forced to take anger management class.

Semper Fi, General. Thank you for your service.

Response from Democrats

A little dissection is in order here:
From Senator Reid
"I was born and raised in the high desert of Nevada in a tiny town called Searchlight. My dad was a hard rock miner. My mom took in wash. I grew up around people of strong values - even if they rarely talked about them. They loved their country, worshiped God, never shunned hard work, and never asked for special favors. My life has been very different from what I imagined growing up, but no matter how far I¹ve traveled, Searchlight is still the place I go back to and still the place I call home."
I love this. Do you notice that ever since Kerry's run for the presidency that the Democrats have to go to all sorts of lengths to show that they're "men/women of the people." You don't see Bush doing it, you didn't see Reagan doing it. We knew where our leaders came from and what they stand for. They didn't have to continuously re-invent themselves to try and reach certain segments of our population.
"It's important that we succeed. It's time that America's government lived by the same values as America's families. It's time we invested in America's future and made sure our people have the skills to compete and thrive in a 21st century economy. That's what Democrats believe. That's where we stand."
What exactly does this mean?? It, as usual from the libs, says NOTHING. Who among us can argue with this statement?? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller??
"This 21st century economy holds great promise for our people. But unless we give all Americans the skills they need to succeed, countries like India and China will take good-paying jobs that should be ours."
I seem to recall that a lot of the jobs going overseas are those that involve customer service?? Low paying jobs that folks in China and India are willing to do for less than Americans are willing to do?? What's a telemarketer make per hour anyway??
"I want you to know that when we believe the president is on the right track, we won't let partisan interests get in the way of what's good for the country. We will be first in line to work with him. But when he gets off track, we will be there to hold him accountable."
So the President is "on track" when he does what you want, but "off track" when he plots his own course?? Why is it that you don't think that YOU are the one "off track", Senator?? Why do you think that the American people overwhelmingly placed Republicans in charge rather than Democrats?? Maybe (could it be???) the majority of Americans think that the Republicans are "on track" and your party is going the wrong way?
"Even after the president's speech, the American people are still asking these questions. You can be sure that Democrats will continue to offer real answers in the months ahead."
Your rebuttal was your chance to offer up some answers, Senator, but you do nothing other than cast stones with no solutions. So what's your answer? Where's your plan? What's your vision? Your response was notably lacking in answers, solutions, plans, or vision. It was nothing more than an attack on a President that you detest.

From Congressperson Pelosi
Her preamble is again, nothing more than trying to prove how much she knows and understands the American military and foreign policy. She wastes a good portion of her speech trying to pretend that she actually is a military supporter, and not someone who loathes everything the military stands for. Again, you do not see President Bush bragging about how much time he's spent at the hospitals or with families of those killed and wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. You don't see Bush bragging about how he flew into Baghdad last year to share a holiday meal with our troops.

Bush does NOT have to prove that he supports our troops, but for some reason, the liberals feel compelled to do so. Why do you think that is?
"We have never heard a clear plan from this administration for ending our presence in Iraq. And we did not hear one tonight."
Bush has consistently given an answer to this question, Congresswoman. The answer is, when we win. I realize that you have a hard time understanding what VICTORY is, after all, how long's it been since your party has won anything? We'll be out when it's time to get out and setting a phony timetable will do nothing. I seem to recall Bill Clinton setting a timetable for us to get out of Kosovo, yet I also clearly recall that we still have troops there. Are you upset over that as well?
"For three years, the president has failed to put together a comprehensive plan to protect America from terrorism. And we did not hear one tonight."
Umm, I hate to point this out to you, Madame Pelosi, but I don't seem to recall hearing of another attack on the United States since 9/11. Maybe I forgot, but I don't think so. Obviously, something the President is doing is working.
"Democrats are committed to a strong national security: that keeps America safe, that wins the War on Terror and that never again sends our troops into harm's way without the equipment they need."
Oh yes, that's why your Presidential candidate voted for the 87 billion before he voted against it? And again, why is it that you feel you must so strongly declare your martial spirit?? Could it be that since the Vietnam era the Democrat party has largely spit on the military? Hmmmm?

As usual - no solutions or debate on the issues facing our country. No alternative solutions. Nothing. Only slightly vieled threats, name calling, and whining. The modern day Democrat party at its finest.

Woman Accused of Giving Lethal Sherry Enema

Wow. Apparently not only can you die from alchohol poisoning by having booze forced down your throat in fraternity pranks, but you can also die from alchohol poisoning by having the booze forced in from the other end as well.

Naysayers tight-lipped since success of Iraq vote

Hey, Mikey - so what'dya got to say? What's that? Nothing?? Or are you still in a funk since the Oscars blew off your crockumentary?

And Mr. Soros?? Et tu? Sure is quiet out there in la la land.

I hope this quote goes into Carter's list of brilliant quotes:

"I personally do not believe they're going to be ready for the election in January ... because there's no security there...."

How's that shoe taste, Jimmy?

Dean Emerging as Likely Chief for Democrats

Ok, taking into consideration that this piece comes to us from the New York Times and is likely to be proven full of ca-ca, it still makes for entertaining reading.

And, if true, do you hear that bell tolling in the distance?? That would be the end of the modern day Democrat Party. Also, it would appear to be the final bell for the Clintonistas so all in all, it's a wonderful day!

The Michael Bane Blog: Day 7 of Michael's Frightening Road Trip...

Classic. For you Glockster's out there:

"A couple of years back, I wrote in a gun magazine (facetiously!) that by 2011, the only handgun made in the world would be the 1911 .45. Everybody else would just throw in the towel, call it a day, retool and knock out the old Browning warhorse by the gazillions. This year's SHOT Show did nothing to dissuade me of the notion. You could stand in the middle of the Las Vegas Convention Center, pick any direction at random, spit and hit a 1911."

Big D is making the switch, and now if we can only convince JR, TG, and Dan (yes, that's his real name, Dan) to shoot a real gun, life will be good. ;)

'Hagar' Wins Comics Poll in Texas

This just proves what a bunch of wankers read the Ft. Worth Star-Smellagram. The Family Circus took second. Craptacular.

What if Bush has been right about Iraq all along?

"By now, you might have even voted against George Bush -- a second time -- to register your disapproval.
But after watching Sunday's election in Iraq and seeing the first clear sign that freedom really may mean something to the Iraqi people, you have to be asking yourself: What if it turns out Bush was right, and we were wrong?"
It's a Liberal nightmare: you might actually be (*gasp*) wrong.
I won't say that it had never occurred to me previously, but it's never gone through my mind as strongly as when I watched the television coverage from Iraq that showed long lines of people risking their lives by turning out to vote, honest looks of joy on so many of their faces.
I noticed those looks, too. The ink-stained finger (no, not that one) has become the new symbol of Democracy in an otherwise human-rights wasteland.
For now, though, I think we have to cut the president some slack about a timetable for his exit strategy.

If it turns out Bush was right all along, this is going to require some serious penance.
Crow. It's what's for dinner.

No Sex? No Pizza? What Is This, a Prison?

Deprived of their flat-screen TVs, mobile phones, pizza deliveries and long visits from lovers, inmates at Mexico's top security prison complained on Monday they are being treated 'like dogs.'
That's tragic. Stop snickering, I'm serious...quit it, I mean it. Stop. Poor convicts.

Latinos protest school’s policies

Again, liberalism at its finest. Free speech only applies if you speak what the liberals want you to speak. Talk about things that 'insult' them, or hurt their widdle feelings, then you of course better shut up. I watched some of the local coverage of this event on TV, and pretty much laughed my ass off watching some of the little wanabe hippie freaks on campus whine about how it's not fair to protest the immigration policies of the US, as it was considered "hate speech".

Just to make sure I got this right - hate speech is when you protest the flood of, and here's the key word dear readers - ILLEGAL immigration.

Read and enjoy from the Denton newspaper. (registration required, which is why I've just pasted the whole thing here)

Students: UNT should not have allowed ‘Capture an Illegal Immigrant Day’

07:23 AM CST on Tuesday, February 1, 2005

By Josh Baugh / Staff Writer

Scores of Latino students from the University of North Texas lambasted their school Monday for allowing a political demonstration that they say amounted to hate speech and called for more stringent restrictions in the campus’ several "free speech" zones.

Latino students and organizations from UNT and other area universities, along with several representatives from the League of United Latin American Citizens gathered to discuss "Capture an Illegal Immigrant Day," held on Wednesday by UNT’s chapter of Young Conservatives of Texas.

"I’m all for freedom of speech," one student said. "But we were offended by the way they conveyed their message."

Pricila Cardenas, president of LULAC at UNT, said the marginalization of illegal immigrants was demeaning and offensive.

"It was not a joke. It was not a game," she said. "If it’s going to offend and hurt people, something should be done."

Several students said in the meeting that UNT’s Dean of Students office shouldn’t have allowed the conservative group access to the free speech zone because of the harmful nature of its demonstration, in which members of the Young Conservatives wore bright orange shirts that read "Illegal Immigrant" on the front and "Catch me if U can" on the back. Passersby could check in at the group’s table, receive a badge and go find the "illegal immigrants." Captures were rewarded with 100 Grand candy bars. The Young Conservatives also handed out literature it says accurately outlines problems with illegal immigration, though many Latino students said it was false and "misinformation."

Dean Ken Ballom said the university does not grant or deny access to the free speech zones based on content.

"I would say all [applications] are granted and basically what we try to do is review to see if there is a health or safety risk, and if the space is available," he said. "No decisions are made based upon the content of the speech."

Students took turns passionately speaking about the pain and humiliation they felt at the hands of the Young Conservatives and calling for action. Some demanded a public apology for the group’s actions.

But Chris Brown, the group’s president, offered none.

"We do feel like our event was not taken as we thought it would have been. We did not want to offend anyone, but it was a side effect," he said to the crowd. "We do not apologize for what we did."

After dozens of students traded ideas of adding constraints to the free speech zones to protect others from the pain they say they suffered last week, UNT professor Abraham Benavides implored the students to move forward and embrace the positive elements that have arisen from the incident.

"I appreciated the emotion that is in this room, but I don’t think we should go down this road," he said. "To say that we don’t want free speech is not a good idea. Someday, you’ll want to have your free speech protected too."

He pointed out that during his time at UNT, he has never seen the unity of the Latino community that he saw Monday night.

"Don’t stop the dialogue," he told them. "Don’t concentrate on the negative."

Rice: Iraqi Election Tops Expectations

72% turnout for the vote. That's amazing. Of course, John Kerry, wanna-be leader of the free world says,
"It is hard to say that something is legitimate when whole portions of the country can't vote and doesn't vote," Kerry said.
John, some of us are tired of hearing your "count every vote" mantra.

72% of the population voted, in spite of threats of violence and even death. Democracy is a great motivator, and once again it's the silent masses who are speaking loudest. Remember, it's a minority of very violent, very evil people who want to retain control of the corrupt fascist state that the 72% have said "no" to. Congratulations to the Iraqi people.
