Rescued "christian" Peacemaker Teams speak out

"We believe that the illegal occupation of Iraq by Multinational Forces is the root cause of the insecurity which led to this kidnapping and so much pain and suffering in Iraq. The occupation must end."
Not one single word of thanks to SpecOps for liberating their stupid, inconsiderate, naive asses.

These people are a waste of salt water, and don't deserve to lick the boots of the soldiers who freed them from a certain death. Should've left them to have their heads hacked off, because they deserve it.

Pigeon Panic: Gun Reports Prompt Downtown Lockdown

This one is special, just for Dan!

Those guys from Pittsburgh sure are tough! They sure got excited over a pellet rifle!

Mr. Cat - you'd better be careful with that new vundergun....

Game ON!

The whole crew will be out kicking ass and taking names this weekend.

First monster match of the year, and I know I've been looking forward to it since last year's inaugural Championship.

Heading to the range Friday to check out the stages in person and watch some of the big dogs shoot. Yeah, it's not very "street" tactical to do it that way, and it'll probably get me killed in real life, but it's a smart thing to in this case....

More Gun Porn

I got my Rock Ranch Custom pistol back from Virgil Tripp at Tripp Research the other day and thought I'd share. For those of you that don't know, Tripp does the finest hard chroming on the planet. He is also one hell of a gunsmith. He chromed every part on the gun except for the grip, trigger, and sights. The gun is beautiful. In a couple of weeks I'll have another gun to share. I'll be getting my Open Gun that Virgil is building me. I feel like a kid right before Christmas.

Virtual Bartender 2

The original Virtual Bartender post was one of my favorite all time Tattler posts. Virtual Bartender 2 is twice the fun, because this time there are two girls. Ask and you shall receive!
While you are there, visit the original. She is still as hot as she ever was.

Man sentenced for ride-by bottom slap

A Colombian man has been sentenced to four years' house arrest for slapping a woman's bottom as he rode by her on his bicycle, sparking debate on whether the punishment fit the crime.

Don't slap behind if you can't do the time.


Volkswagen Removes Billboards From 3 Cities After Complaints

Volkswagen said Friday it will remove billboards in New York, Los Angeles and Miami after receiving complaints that a word used in an advertisement was offensive to Hispanics.
The ad for the new GTI 2006 had a photo of the sports car accompanied by the words "Turbo-Cojones." Cojones, which means testicles in Spanish, has become a casually used term for boldness or guts in English but has never lost its more vulgar connotations in its native language.
The billboards will be replaced with two ads, with one saying "Here today, gone tamale" and the other "Kick a little gracias."

Actor Charlie Sheen Questions Official 9/11 Story

Actor Charlie Sheen has joined a growing army of other highly credible public figures in questioning the official story of 9/11 and calling for a new independent investigation of the attack and the circumstances surrounding it.
First off, I don't see how anybody could type this and take themselves seriously. For some reason when I think of credible public figures, Charlie Sheen doesn't come to mind.

"It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75% of their targets, that feels like a conspiracy theory. It raises a lot of questions."
Brilliant! It was a conspiracy, you idiot. It was a conspiracy planned and committed by terrorists. Why is it easier for some people to believe that our government is responsible for this act instead of Al Qaeda?
"There was a feeling, it just didn't look any commercial jetliner I've flown on any time in my life and then when the buildings came down later on that day I said to my brother 'call me insane, but did it sorta look like those buildings came down in a controlled demolition'?"
Okay, you're insane. Last weekend in Fort Worth, the tallest building in downtown was destroyed by a controlled blast. The building collapsed inward and the only damage to the surrounding structures were a few windows were broken out. Now, take a look at that picture. How can somebody look at that picture and think that it is an implosion? Debris rained down over a large area destroying building 7 and damaging others to the point they had to later be demolished.
Sheen goes on to talk about the plane that hit the Pentagon.
Sheen outlined his disbelief that the official story of what happened at the Pentagon matched the physical evidence.
"Show us this incredible maneuvering, just show it to us. Just show us how this particular plane pulled off these maneuvers. 270 degree turn at 500 miles and hour descending 7,000 feet in two and a half minutes, skimming across treetops the last 500 meters."
This is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. If the government wanted to pull this off to start a war, why in the hell would they fly a plane into the place that is home to the Department of Defense?
Charlie Sheen joins the rest of his great family and notably his father Martin Sheen, who has lambasted for opposing the Iraq war before it had begun yet has now been proven right in triplicate, in using his prominent public platform to stand for truth and justice and we applaud and salute his brave efforts...

I knew that Charlie Sheen was a total moron, but now we also know that the nut doesn't fall far from the tree. He is as big a kook as his father.


Heaven help me, I do love me some Engrish.

And honestly, can you find a decent Cowboy Leg Beautiful Pole anywhere in Texas?

Gun prOn!

Been a bit since we posted any cool gun pics. I thought I'd take this opportunity to welcome the newest member of the Catfish family to the world.... drum roll please.....

As the Finance Minister has declared that our Home Defense Budget cannot sustain any growth this quarter in order to continue the entitlements our 4 legged constituants have come to expect, I had to part ways with my previous XD which was a "duty" model in 9mm. Heckuva nice gun! The new gun is a full size "tactical" model in .40 S&W.

Since I plan to make an assualt on the USPSA nationals this year, and again, the Finance Minister says no way in hell can I drop 4 grand on an Open gun like other esteemed members of this blog... I'll be shooting this "tactical" model in Production class at nationals....

In addition, I can shoot her in ESP in IDPA-land if I so choose, and make some nice powder puff loads that chrono about 132pf that should really piss off some of the mall ninjas; but hey, all I have to do to get back on their good side is point out that my slide actually says "Tactical" on it!!

Got the package deal that included the gun, two mags, a double mag pouch and a holster for about $435 at the Fort Worth gun show today. Picked up another coupla mags, and will need probalby two more; plus a few more mag pouches for Production - but I've got plenty of time to do that....

As soon as I can take her out to the range to make a range report, I'll let you all know how she shoots.

A Small Texan

An humorous anectdote from Uncle Bill in New Orleans. Apologies to little people everywhere...

The testicles of a Texas midget hurt and ached almost all the time. He went to the doctor and told him about his problem. The doctor told him to drop his pants and he would have a look.

The midget dropped his pants. The doctor stood him up on the examining table, and started to examine him. The doc put one finger under his left testicle and told him to turn his head and cough, the usual method to check for a hernia.

"Aha!" mumbled the doc, and as he put his finger under the right testicle, he asked him to cough again. "Aha!" said the doctor once more, and reached for his surgical scissors. Snip-snip-snip-snip on the right side, then snip-snip-snip-snip on the left side.

The little guys was so scared, he was afraid to look, but noted with amazement that the snipping did not hurt. The doctor then told him to walk around the examining room to see if his testicles still hurt.

He was absolutely delighted as he walked around and discovered his boys were no longer aching.

The doctor said, "How does that feel now?" The midget replied, "Perfect Doc, and I didn't even feel it. What did you do?"

The doctor replied, "I cut two inches off the top of your cowboy boots."

A star is born: Owens signs with the Cowboys

I was joking with my wife about this last night, saying I'd heard on the radio that TO had signed with the Cowboys. Little did I know at the time, but in a sure sign of the apocalypse, Owens is now a Cowboy.

There's no doubting that TO is a fantastic talent on the field. He is truly a gifted athlete. However, there is also no doubting that he has pretty much single handedly destroyed his last two teams due to his childish and selfish off the field behavior.

Had I been the one signing the checks, I would have signed him at the league minimum, with bonuses at the END of the year, and not the beginning for good behavior and solid performance.
Part of the gamble with Owens coming to Dallas is whether fans will embrace him. Many are still bitter about the September 2000 game when, while playing for the 49ers, Owens celebrated each of two touchdown catches at Texas Stadium by running to the team's star logo at midfield. Safety George Teague secured a spot in team lore by decking Owens after the second one.
I can't help but feel a sense of foreboding for the Cowboy's future on this deal.
