Ron paul goes mainstream and other news awards

August 6, 2007

Sometimes I schmooze the news, and sometimes I do awards.  Todays crop seems award worthy, so lets see what we got.

The best man for the job is a dumbass award goes to General David Petraeus.  The genral was in charge of arming the Iraqi forces between 2004 and 2005.  It is quite possible that while we scream about the Iranians arming the insurgents the truth is, we did.  If this guy can’t count beans, what the hell is he doing leading all U.S. Forces in Iraq.  Assistant dumbass awards go to the Defense Department, and the White House.  The General didn’t create the cluster f&%k, he merely presided over it.

The Wizard of Oz Award goes to Congressional Democrats who displayed their lack of heart, brains, and courage by allowing the Bush Administration to bitch slap them again on the wiretapping issue (FISA).  The people who elected the democrats are in full scream over this duplicitous behaviour by their elected officials who used the wiretapping like a civil liberties club to get themselves the majority.  This isn’t the first time Nancy, Harry, and the rest have turned their back on the voters who ensured their employment.

  The Ostrich award goes to every single elected official who has ignored the infrastructure of this country over the last 30 years.  This link takes you to a state by state map of every bridge that is either structurally deficient, or structurally obsolete in America.  About 50 in my home town alone.  Some 25% of the total number of bridges in the country.

The Big Bang Award will not be going to Rush Limbaugh and Rosie O’donnell, as I can’t pin down the facts on their alleged tryst.  We’ll have to give it to the next largest collision of heavenly bodies in existence.  This is kind of cool if you’re into cosmic astrophysics type stuff.

The Cat Banging a Cheese Grater award goes to Sinead O’connor.  She has released her new album Theology, based on god stuff.  Yeah, the Sinead that tore up the picture of the pope.  Have a listen, and let me know when you’re IQ returns to normal what you think.

The Ebony and Ivory Award almost went to Michael Vick, but it turns out prison bars aren’t made of Ivory.  this is actually a very interesting article.  Interracial marriage with pro and con looks at the issue.

The Ican haz pink armband Award goes to policemen in Thailand.  Hello kitty is finally used as it shoud be.  To shame.

The  Man This Guy Is A Pissant Award goes to that propaganda is bliss reporter Sean Penn.  He is apparently courting another whackjob Leader in Hugo Chavez, the New Fidel of Latin America.  Can’t wait to see the end result  in print.  I wonder what kind of story you see from behind the bulletproof windshield of a man beloved by all?

The I need One Home Run Award goes to Barry Bonds…just kiddin…i wouldn’t give him testicle sweat…it goes to candidate Ron Paul.  For a long time his supporters have been waiting for his mainstream chance, and when he got it he lobbed one into centerfield.  He seemed shrill, and his interview I thought went quite poorly.  He failed to deny a false allegation about the Alex Jones show, claimed the 2nd amendment needs to be changed in favor of less gun control, and recommended allowing younger citizens to opt out of social security.  He will make up the money from pulling out of Iraq he claimed.  Sorry, Ron.  You can only pay for so many things with money you save from pulling out of Iraq.  This was not the kind of powerful showing he needed, and even his pauliacs say he got a fair shake.  Unfortunately, they also think he was messianic. ( go to the video box.  There are two links to his comments)


Ron Paul should switch parties, and other schmoozed news

August 2, 2007

it was a long day.  It was a brutal day.  It had a lot of downs, and only one up.  I was not here when this happened.  I have however crossed that bridge hundreds of times, and it kind of bothers me that the end of this article is all about how there is no known link to terrorism.  Is that really where we are?  Any catastrophic incident has to be looked at in light of a possible terrorist connection?  They are now saying up to 50 cars in the river.

   Some new exercise guidlelines are out.  Basically it says if you have sex five days a week for a half hour, and sprinkle in a little weight lifting you’re good to go.  It also says physical activity is about as bad as smoking in regards to morbidity and mortality, so get your lazy asses up and go do some boinking.

   In the 70’s I remember this big deal being made about glasses from McDonalds that were made in China had to be thrown away because the paint had to much lead in it.  Well, it’s 2007, and  American companies are still putting you at risk by merchandising dangerous products bought from Chinese Vendors,  Almost a million fisher price toys.  Have your kids been putting any of them in their mouths?  Isn’t it time free trade with this country be reexamined based on risk to our population. 

here’s a good one on health insurance.  Did you know that in many states  you can make as much as 82K plus a year, and still receive federally funded health insurance?  Bet that pisses off those of you making 50K a year and paying for your own.  This includes adults with no children, but the program is called SCHIP and is intended for children.  I pay for my won and my kids, but I think I’ll go get me some poor people money from the government.  what the hell.

Britney Spears is now making death threats.  She threatened to kill two photographers.  That she intended to do it by making them smell her thong is only a rumor, but I’m pretty sure that would work.  Dumb young women are becoming an infestation in the entertainment world.  Isn’t there some way we can keep them from procreating?

so now we need more secret wiretapping?  The democrats are balking, but how much you bet it goes through, even though their base is dead set against it.  Get a clue on the left, you are as marginalized by the people you elected as are the people on the right.

Either Obama has caught a serious case of dumbass disease, or he has decided to move way the hell to the right.  Somewhere right of Dick Cheney, actually.  He is now threatening to invade Pakistan.  Someone needs to tell him to shutup and fast.

Less people get their political news from you tube, myspace, AND blogs than from any other source.  Over 60% of Republicans and Democrats say they would consider voting for an Independent candidate, and over 50% of each think an independent would be good for the country.  Are you listening Ron Paul?  Maybe its time to take down those faded and fake republican colors and run as a libertarian?  You say you are one, and the country seems to be ready.  Yeah right.

and thats it… i lugged 458 X 80 = 36,640 lbs during todays little 12 hour stint of hell, and my shoulders just now cried nuff.
