Stop Her Now

I ran across this great anti-Hillary site Stop Her . It's chock full of news & funny bits like this joke:

A man walked into a very high-tech bar. As he sat down on a stool he noticed that the bartender was a robot. The robot clicked to attention and asked, "Sir, what will you have?"

The man thought a moment then replied, "a martini please."

The robot clicked a couple of times and mixed the best Martini the man had ever had.

The robot then asked, "Sir, what is your IQ?"

The man answered "Oh, about 164."

The robot then proceeded to discuss the 'theory of Relativity, inter-stellar space travel, the latest medical breakthroughs, etc...

The man was most impressed. He left the bar but thought he would try a different tact. He returned and took a seat. Again the robot clicked and asked what he would have? "A martini please."

Again it was superb. The robot again asked "What is Your IQ sir?"

This time the man answered, "Oh about 100". So the Robot started discussing NASCAR racing, the latest basketball scores, and what to expect the Dodgers to do this week end.

The guy had to try it one more time. So he left, returned and took a stool....again a martini, and the question, "What is your IQ?" This time the man drawled out " Uh.....bout 50".

The robot clicked then leaned close and very slowly asked,

"A-r-e...Y-o-u-r...P-e-o-p-l-e...G-o-i-n-g...T-o...N-o-m-i-n-a-t-e...H-i -l-l-a-r-y-?????

Wacko Jacko

I've been hearing reports that Michael Jackson is converting to Islam...

According to he formally joined the Nation of Islam on Dec. 17, 2003.

Is there no end to the weirdness?

Charity Oversight

Clintons' Charity Not Listed On Senate Disclosure Forms

Did you know that Hill, Bill, and Chelsea have operated a family charity since 2001, and that Hill has failed to list it on annual Senate financial disclosure reports on five occasions?


Clerical Error?

Yeah, right... it can happen to anyone.

Why am I not surprised?

OZ Loves Cheney

Supporters of US Vice President Dick Cheney hold a banner outside the hotel where he delivered his Australian American Leadership Dialogue in Sydney. Cheney met with Australian Prime Minister John Howard, one of Washington's staunchest allies, for talks likely to focus on troop deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

How refreshing.

Let's make our own banner:

The world needs great men like John Howard. We love Australia.

Blue Brain

***Your Brain is Blue***

Of all the brain types, yours is the most mellow.

You tend to be in a meditative state most of the time. You don't try to think away your troubles.

Your thoughts are realistic, fresh, and honest. You truly see things as how they are.

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about your friends, your surroundings, and your life.

What Color Is Your Brain?

Who thinks up these silly Internet tests?

Happy Friday, everybody!

Dems Feud

Clinton, Obama Camps' Feud Is Out In The Open

I'm just sitting back and enjoying this, aren't you?


Thomas Sowell's columns, always a good read, says it all in this piece:

Barack Obama, Control Freak:
Fresh Face, Same Old Fallacies.

Here's a clip:

"All this is the old liberal agenda from years past, old wine in new bottles, a new face with old ideas that have been tried and failed repeatedly over the past generation".

I don't want to live in Obamanation, do you?

Heroes & Coward

Alicia Colon's excellent piece in the NY SUN Heroes & Cowards is worth reading. I hate to say, "It's a must read," but it really is...

Here's a clip:

"The total military dead in the Iraq war between 2003 and this month stands at about 3,133. This is tragic, as are all deaths due to war, and we are facing a cowardly enemy unlike any other in our past that hides behind innocent citizens. Each death is blazoned in the headlines of newspapers and Internet sites. What is never compared is the number of military deaths during the Clinton administration: 1,245 in 1993; 1,109 in 1994; 1,055 in 1995; 1,008 in 1996. That's 4,417 deaths in peacetime but, of course, who's counting?"

Pray for our brave troops because the cowards are in charge of the pursestrings.

Congressional Cowardice

Ralph Peters doesn't pull any punches in his piece in the NY Post ... COWARDS GIVE UP ON GIS - & GIVE IN TO EVIL .

Here's a clip:

"The 'nonbinding resolution' telling the world that we intend to surrender to terrorism and abandon Iraq may be the most disgraceful congressional action since the Democratic Party united to defend slavery."

Disgraceful is one word for it.

Resounding Resolution

The House voted 246-182 against Resolution 63 yesterday.

Click Here To See All The Votes

I've come to expect this type of shamefully treasonous behavior from democrats, but it's surprising to see 17 republicans vote this way.

Here's a list:

- Mike Castle (R-DE)
- Howard Coble (R-NC)
- Tom Davis (R-VA)
- John Duncan (R-TN)
- Phil English (R-PA)
- Wayne Gilchrest (R-MD)
- Bob Inglis (R-SC)
- Timothy V. Johnson (R-IL)
- Walter B. Jones (R-NC)
- Rick Keller (R-FL)
- Mark Kirk (R-IL)
- Steven LaTourette (R-OH)
- Ron Paul (R-TX)
- Tom Petri (R-WI)
- Jim Ramstad (R-MN)
- Fred Upton (R-MI)
- Jim Walsh (R-NY)

They may argue that it's a non-binding resolution and that it does not affect their support of the troops.

Baloney! This moronic gesture is symbolic of an attitude of resounding defeat and serves only to embolden the enemy.

The Senate is calling a special Saturday session to vote on the measure. Let's hope these republicans show more backbone.

Then she quits rehab after one day...

Somewhere along the way, she shaved her head.

What was she thinking?

Britney doesn't do thinking.

Year Of The Pig

Two Pigs 'Tie The Knot' In Taiwan

No, not the wedding of Michael Moore and Rosie O'Donnell... these are physiologically correct pigs... and the wedding is a charity event which is part of the festivities heralding the beginning of the Year of the Pig which begins on February 18th.

Let the celebration of pigs and pork products begin.

And Now For Something Completely Different...

We recently exposed our daughters to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Needless to say, they laughed themselves silly, and were glad to finally understand the silly references we've been making to it all these years.

So when we heard that Spamalot was coming to our area, we made arrangements to take the girls.

It was great fun. We all loved it. There was much loving homage to the film, and a few musical numbers that had nothing at all to do with it but were thrown in for gratuitous humor. The production values and the cast were excellent.

If you're a Monty Python fan, it's definitely worth catching.

New Addition To The Family

Most of you have noticed my recent absence... No, I wasn't in rehab

Meet Elke, our new puppy. At 8 weeks old she's 14.1 lbs. of perpetual motion
that requires much supervision.

It's been 7 years since Dax was a puppy, so we had forgotten the horrors of housebreaking. Piddle & poop patrol is ongoing, and time-consuming.

Posting may be light for a while. Please bear with me.
