My Horoscope

From The Onion of August 31, 2005:

Sagittarius November 22 - December 21

It doesn't matter if you've done nothing wrong and been charged with no crime. CNN's Nancy Grace is certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that you're guilty and should be "put down like a dog."

Well, what did we really expect from CNN anyway?

Bodycount Growing

From Babalublog:

Thirty one lives. With all their complexities. All their dreams. All their talents. All their drives. All their loves and hates. All their circumstances. All their names. Thirty one lives from Cuba who were going to do something in America.

Gone. To a watery grave at the bottom of the sea.

All we know is that some waited in the open ocean for help, outside their capsized boat, in dark and light, dark and light, dark and light in the open sea of nothing but empty horizons on all sides for at least FIVE days.

No one came... God damn you, fidel castro.

Wednesday, August 24, 2005


The next time you hear someone go on about Comrade Castro has achieved universal literacy on his private island, ask the thug-hugger how many illiterates did Castro shoot.

Quote of the Day

From Maven at Cinemocracy:

I’m not sure of the veracity of this claim; I generally think that the first time entertainment and politics collided was when B-list actor John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln – an action that sparked 140 years of animosity between Republicans and celebrities. But I digress.

I never thought of that.

And Now For Something Completely Different

Skippy's List may go on forever.

"Tom Paine" at Silent Running speculates about the future of Skippy's List.

For example:

3,756. There is a perfecly good reason Starfleet keeps changing its uniforms every few years, and Specialist Schwarz is not permitted to criticise this policy, or to suggest they are all "kinda gay".

If I think of anything I'll post it here.

And Now... A Movie

I just saw a recently released DVD of a really low-budget sci-fi film. I waited about two years for ASCENSION to either show up in a theatre or on DVD.

Hmmmmmmmmmm... Cerebral sci-fiiiiiiiiii...

Sorry, I was channeling Homer Simpson contemplating a donut for a moment there.

Socialist: Someone who refuses to believe that the rest of us have other plans.

Wednesday, August 17, 2005


Something about this just reeks socialist malice on the part of the college administration:

Carl Basham said officials at Austin Community College recently told him that he lost his Texas resident's status because of the years he spent out of state on two tours of duty in Iraq.

Not having the in-state designation would mean paying around $2600 a semester in tuition, instead of about $500.

Perhaps the Marine Corps could send down an amtrack (painted black with DELTA TAU CHI DEATHMOBILE in big red letters) with a full load of drill instructors to straighten out the relevant administrators.

This is only a suggestion.

Quote of the Day

James Lileks wrote:

The hard left in America needs to realize a bald, cruel fact: Anyone who sees no moral distinction between Israel and the mullahs of Iran, or sees the U.S. attempt to set up a constitutional republic in Iraq as equivalent to the Syrian occupation of Lebanon, suffers from incurable moral cretinism. The more the fervent anti-war base embraces these ideas, the more they ensure that no one will trust the left with national security. Ever.

It appears to me that the Left in general is, to use a favorite phrase of Ayn Rand's, faking reality. Or to put it another way, the Left in general routinely engages in the act of evasion.

They evade knowledge of reality. They refuse to know the truth about such toxic doctrines as socialism and islam. They willfully blank out knowledge of what happens to those who, through inability to resist or through the act of surrender, are subject to the whims of predatory savages. They condemn as an act of aggression the act of self defense.

And they treat their contempt for the lives and property of their fellow citizens as their primary qualification for those public offices that were established for the purpose of protecting the lives and property of the citizens.

And then they are totally mystified as to why we refuse to vote for them.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

This Is Not Human Behavior

From the Minneapolis Star Tribune (Socialist Rag of the Twin Cities):

Minneapolis police arrested a woman Sunday afternoon in connection with Saturday's fatal hit-and-run of Evelyn Geng, who was run down at a gas station after she tried to stop a man who stole her $50 and bottle of Pepsi.

I stroll into the workplace on Monday Morning and Anna, who is the head trainer for Pizza Hut stores in the district, asks me if I've been up to the Moto Mart gas station up on 33rd and Hiawatha Avenue?

I said no.

She then tells me about the incident. How the late Mrs. Geng was standing in line at the cash register with the fifty-dollar note visibly in hand when someone simply grabs the note from her hand and bursts out of the store to a car waiting outside. Mrs. Geng then runs out and stands in front of the car and demands the return of her money. The driver of the car, apparently lacking anything resembling a conscience, then runs over the poor woman, who later dies.

I've purchased gas and fountain drinks from this station. I've delivered pizzas to this station.

To continue from the Star Tribune:

The suspect car was found abandoned Saturday near the gas station, Sporny said at a news conference, adding that it had out-of-state license plates.

I won't speculate on the race of the suspects but I would not be the slightest bit surprised if the car had Illinois plates. I would also be unsurprised to later hear that the vehicle had been stolen from its rightful owner. Contempt for the rights of Life, Liberty, and Property of others is apparently the cultural norm in Illinois. Especially in the city of Chicago.

Now, the first thing that came to mind when I first heard about this incident was that the perpetrator was acting like a non-sapient animal, an animal would see something edible in its range of perception and seize and consume it. The whim-driven perpetrator apparently imitated what Ayn Rand used to call "the range of the moment mentality" of an animal and seized the fifty-dollar note from the victim's hand without any thought as to long term consequences.

In a civilized society the proper function of parents and educators is the teach children the skills and social norms for living in a civil society. This includes teaching the child to respect for the right of life, liberty, and property of others.

Socialists on the other hand, because of their dependency on the production of others, must teach the primacy of the parasite and contempt for the actual rights of others. Thus in socialists dumps like Chicago, the apparatus of government is materially and doctrinally turned against the honest and productive for the benefit of an ever growing swarm of parasites. This of course sets an adverse example for anyone growing up in Chicago or any other socialist dump.

If there is one thing I would hate more than Illinois Nazis, it would be Illinois Democrats.

A Theory

Dana, one the people I live with has come up with a theory: Ladies did not normally use foul language because they did not have to do dirty and nasty tasks like fixing the bathroom drains.

This is her theory.

I Need To See This Film

Werner Herzog's Lessons of Darkness

Admittedly, Herzog is more interested in the poetics of apocalypse than in the specifics of politics, but there is no escaping the remembrance that the Kuwaiti devastation was conceived and commanded by a single human being, and it is impossible to come to the film’s end without feeling a visceral gladness that Saddam is now a sunken old man shuffling the width of a pen.

Lessons of Darkness is must viewing for those interested in cinema as a visual art and for those who would be reminded why we fight.

My personal view is in short, we fight because the alternative to fighting is morally intolerable.

Quote of the Day

Antipilgerite at Little Green Footballs wrote about the Left:

This is the thing about the LLL: if you actually do anything worthwhile, you're fatally compromised by having "worked within the system" -- you didn't challenge the Man, man! Your actions did not help to being about Gl0B4L 5oCiAL15T R3V0LuT10N! Whereas if you do nothing but whine endlessly and mug for photo-ops, you're treated like a secular saint. Hence, their "heroes" are all assholes, losers, and moaners. And they wonder why they're losing the culture wars.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Screaming At The Top Of Their Lungs

Cox and Forkum on the ACLU.

Seriously, I think the membership of the ACLU should be interned for the duration.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Tiberius hates traitors, and he's not too fond of the Established Media either:

The media also needs a good beating. When first arrested, we all saw the picture of him with an RPG launcher. That was a truthful picture because that shows him exactly how he is now and what he was doing when captured. That is what he was really like.

Now, however, you see the photo of him as a little kid, and the one from about 10 years ago with him all smiling wearing a queer looking jumper. I call BULLSHIT on that. That is not how he is. That is an out and out lie of what he is. If he were all innocent like the guy in that photo, he wouldn'’t have become a traitor and aligned himself with muslim scum and tried to do his part to bring down Western Civilization.

One of the problems we have in the American Republic (and I'm sorry to say that this issue goes back to the Founders) is our apparent reluctance to prosecute and punish the act of treason. The last individual who was sentenced to death, for joining the Japanese army and abusing American soldiers taken prisoner in thePhilippiness, had his sentence commuted to life in prison by President Eisenhower. And of course Jane Fonda and John Kerry are still free and politically active.

This is simply wrong.

A Request

As we all know, right wing bloggers such as myself are paid to blog by the Halliburton Conspiracy Consortium as presently represented by Karl Rove. Or that's the theory anyway.

The problem is that I have not seen one penny from those tight-fisted motherf**king bastards since I started this blog.

Would the HCC blogger payroll department please contact me as soon as possible in order to resolve this matter.

What Kind of Novel Should I Write?
brought to you by Quizilla

In Other News

The state of Georgia passes a law requiring voters to present a state I.D. at the polling place. A well known Marxist rag whines about it.

Under the Voting Rights Act, Georgia's law must be cleared by the Justice Department before it can take effect. There can be little doubt that the law would have "the effect of denying or abridging the right to vote on account of race," and it therefore must be rejected. But in the current Justice Department, there is a real danger that this decision will be based on politics rather than law.


Anyone who cannot be bothered to make the minimal effort to obtain the proper identification card certainly could not be counted on to make a rational choice at the polls and thus should have no voice in government.

Georgia's new identification requirement is part of a nationwide drive to erect barriers at the polls. Indiana also recently passed a new photo-identification requirement, and several other states, including Ohio, are considering the addition of such requirements.

We would certainly benefit from having fewer whim-driven idiots gumming up the political works.

And are we to believe that the same Democratic Party that routinely charters busses to haul welfare trash and the elderly to polling places are somehow unable to haul the same pet voters to the driver's license bureau?

There are many steps states can take to reduce election fraud. But laws that condition voting on having a particular piece of identification that many eligible voters do not possess have no place in a democracy.

What has no place in free republic is mob of counterfeit voters acting to overturn the true will of the citizen body.

The reality is that the so-called Democratic party relies on fraud in order turn marginal defeats into victories. What truly matters to them is power. The power to plunder the productive for the material benefit of the mob of parasites that make up the Democrat constituency. And the power to use rational citizens and their children as fodder for various social engineering schemes.

Anything that stands in the way of obtaining and holding onto power is an obstacle that is to be overcome by any means necessary. Be it the promise of false rights or the deluge of false votes, no trick is too foul, morally or legally, for the Democratic Party.

Perhaps the time has come to dispense with the polite fiction that the Democratic Party is a legitimate political faction.

Someone Else's Thought For The Day

Dr. Yaron Brook of the Ayn Rand Institute wrote:

It is worth remembering too that in the reconstruction of Japan there were no insurgents, no Japanese roadside bombs killing our soldiers. One reason is that the United States had shown, in the clearest possible terms, our willingness to wage total war against our enemies. Our military strategists in Iraq could learn from those who, sixty years ago, decided to spare no means in bringing the Japanese nation to its knees.

Any questions?

And Now For Something Completely Different

Mr. James Lileks gives us a first hand account of Ambassador John Bolton's first day at work:

3:17 p.m. -- The afternoon sun is getting hot; Bolton discovers the shade is stuck. He calls building services. He is informed that the shade has been stuck since 1966, that the U.N. Commission on Window Treatments was convened in 1967 to address the matter, and is scheduled to meet again in 2006, once India withdraws its objections to giving the rotating chairmanship to Yemen -- as one of the founding countries, it has the right to the chair, but when the nation split in two its claim to the chair was remanded to a subcommittee, which went on a fact-finding mission to a French drape manufacturer and never reported back aside from annual expense accounts from a beach house in the south. The Plenary Commission on International Shade Accords, a separate body, has recommended that any action on drapes or curtains be postponed until the U.N. building is renovated, or that a large movable curtain be erected across the street to block the sun, but this debate has been stalled over an amendment condemning Israel's treatment of Venetian blinds in the Gaza Strip. Of course, now that Israel has begun withdrawal from ...

3:24 -- Bolton hangs up, cuts the cord, and the shade comes down.

At least he didn't have to deal with the U.N. Commission on Swamps.

Not yet...


Let's see... we have a navy, which has it's own army, which in turn has it's own air force.

If that wasn't redundancy in action, the navy is now establishing a second army to take up the missions that it's first army no longer performs.

A Question

Where is Silent Bob and his stolen Holy Putter when we really need it?


Dear Leader Kim Jong-Il claims to have scored eleven holes-in-one on the first round of golf he has ever played.

We're supposed to take this seriously?

Come on! Isn't golf a bourgeois distraction? You would never hear about how many holes-in-one were scored by Comrade Stalin. Okay, Comrade Castro might have something to say about his own baseball stats, but you would never, never, never hear a peep about how well any other big comrade did in any other sport.

(Rumor also has it that a Mr. Billy-Jeff Clinton of the State of Arkansas has also cheated at golf. This is only a rumor.)

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

Oh, I forgot...the Dear Leader also sings and dances in TEAM AMERICA: WORLD POLICE.

Or was that just a puppet...

Speaking of an actual sports record, according to Dr. Sowell:

If anyone ever doubts that Babe Ruth was the greatest baseball player of all time, ask him: How many shutouts did Ty Cobb or Barry Bonds ever pitch? Ruth still holds the American League record for shutouts in a season by a left-handed pitcher.

That should be the final update...
