Stupid is as stupid does

"The entire country may disagree with me, but I don't understand the necessity for patriotism," Maines resumes, through gritted teeth. "Why do you have to be a patriot? About what? This land is our land? Why? You can like where you live and like your life, but as for loving the whole countryƂ… I don't see why people care about patriotism."

The Dixie Chicks just keep getting dumber and dumber. They apparently haven't learned the lesson of just show up, sing, and go home.

The fact that these nimwits can't understand the concept of patriotism doesa lott to explain their mental capacity. Or lack thereof.

Hillary OKs ‘loving couple’ strategy for 2008

Wow, is anyone surprised that the Clintons have to actually act like they have a loving relationship? Why in the wide wide world of sports would they have to put on this illusion unless the opposite were true?

I mean, can you imagine a similar story about George and Laura Bush? That's because there's no doubt about their feelings, #1, and #2, the Bush's didn't have to make their relationship a story.

The Clintons are truly pathetic and the thought of the Hildabeast in charge makes me want to vomit.

Phoenix sweats most but Miami suffers more

Phoenix on Wednesday was named the sweatiest city in the United States, but Miami topped the list as the most uncomfortable American city due to its mix of humidity and heat.
Obviously these people have never been to the armpit of Texas, most commonly referred to as Houston.

Busy busy

Sorry for the slow blogging on my part lately; luckily JR and the Big D are keeping things going....
Trying to keep up with a VERY active lab pup is certainly taking a toll on my blogging efforts the past few weeks!!

Here's some things I've been reading lately though that I thought you might enjoy:

And you thought bat wings were only something you saw in a James Bond or Batman movie?? Think again!!

Algore has been taking some pretty massive hits about his bogus global warming catastrophe. There's been two stories in the past couple of weeks, both solidly refuting the whole sky is falling BS that is spewed daily from the econazis.

Story 1 starts with one of the best introductory paragraphs ever:
You'll often hear the left lecture about the importance of dissent in a free society. Why not give it a whirl? Start by challenging global warming hysteria next time you're at a LoDo cocktail party and see what happens. Admittedly, I possess virtually no expertise in science. That puts me in exactly the same position as most dogmatic environmentalists who want to craft public policy around global warming fears.

The article goes on to quote a 1975 Newsweek article that states the following:

"Climatologists," reads the piece, "are pessimistic that political leaders will take any positive action to compensate for the climatic change. ... The longer the planners delay, the more difficult will they find it to cope with climatic change once the results become grim reality."

But...... the article is not talking about global warming. No, dear reader, it's talking about a coming ICE AGE! Read the whole thing.

Story 2 has caused me to rethink my attitude about our friends to the north.

"Gore's circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply ncredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.

You know, those of us here at the Tattler have been saying as much since day 1. It's good to see someone else reporting it. I'm taking bets as to how long we'll go before we see this reported, or even mentioned in the New York Times or on CNN.

And, on a gun related note, I installed - check that - Brad installed a new front sight on my Limited blaster yesterday - a Dawson fiber optic. I've tried a fiber optic before, 3-4 years ago and wasn't too thrilled with it. This fiber, though, is significantly smaller/thinner than the last blob of light I used so we'll see if I like it or not. In addition, I picked up this front sight off the prize table at a match last weekend so if it doesn't pan out I'm not out any $$$.Match report Saturday night...

Bugs Bunny sparks security alert

Here's a gun-related post for a change.
Ms. Vinnicombe, 34, was told the toy was technically a 'weapon' and would have to be registered at the firearms desk.
And what IS this scary "toy" gun? A pellet gun? An airsoft gun? A replica look-alike gun?
A girl of six triggered a security scare at an airport – with a pink Bugs Bunny water pistol rammed full of sweets.
A candy-filled, bright pink, Bugs Bunny water pistol. I can certainly see why the authorities were alarmed. It's a slippery slope from pink candy toy pistols to armed hijackers. Lord knows she fit the profile for terrorists.
A Cape Town airport spokeswoman insisted: 'It's better to be safe than sorry.'
Amen, Miss Airport Safety Lady. We can all sleep better tonight knowing that 6-year-old terrorists can't put one over on airport security.

Who's the Idiot of the Week?

I missed this one earlier this week. Looks like Terrell Owens is leading the polls by a wide margin.
And then there's Dallas Cowboy Terrell Owens, who ticked off fans of his new adopted city by wearing a Shaquille O'Neal Miami jersey at the Dallas-Miami game last night ... a day after showing up eight hours late for his own youth football camp!

Roethlisberger in hospital after motorcycle accident

Steelers quarterback , Ben Roethlisberger, who has said he dislikes wearing a motorcycle helmet, was seriously injured in a motorcycle crash and taken to a hospital Monday.

Over the course of my life I have, on many occasions, done a lot of things that were viewed by some people, as reckless and dangerous. I was lucky to make it through my teens without suffering serious injury. After growing into adulthood, I still did dangerous things, but after gaining a certain maturity I assessed everything with a risk vs. reward mindset, and did what I could to minimize the risk while still being able to enjoy the reward. I have been a motorcyclist since I was 16. Even back then I was smart enough to know that you need to wear a helmet. I know that wearing a helmet is a choice we all get to make, but let me put this as plainly as I can.

If you throw a leg over a motorcycle and you are not wearing a helmet, you are an idiot!

Gravity and the forces of nature are a bitch. When you are at their mercy, you have no control over what happens next. More than likely, your head will hit something that is harder. The harder object will win the battle and you will break the hearts of everybody in your life. I think the choice to not wear a helmet is more of a vanity thing than a freedom thing. Get over yourself and put on a damn helmet! If you choose not to wear a helmet, do somebody a favor and fill out your organ donor card.
