Dumb F***s of the Day.

From the state of California (gosh, what a surprise) comes the story of office supply store employees who were assaulted by some gangster (or wanna-be gangsters) for wearing their red uniform shirts in the workplace.

Staples employees shirts spark gang attack

PETALUMA, Calif. (AP) - Petaluma police say two Staples office supply store employees and a shopping center customer were beaten recently by gang members, apparently for wearing red clothing.

The attacks happened Friday near the Staples office supply store in Petaluma, where two workers and another person were assaulted.

Gosh, I guess people working for a living and having to wear uniform apparel in the workplace must be an alien concept (I say, concept!) for some folks.

Two 17-year-olds, a boy and a girl, were later arrested.

Petaluma Police Sergeant Dave Kahl says a Staples employee was standing outside the store when the suspects began yelling gang slogans and challenging him to fight. He started to walk into the store when they attacked him with their fists.

The suspects were booked into Sonoma County Juvenile Hall.

Where they will no doubt receive a good talking to from what passes for authorities in the state of California.

The other idiot of the day was some (race deleted) kid who ordered a pizza from the Pizza Hut where I work as a driver. When I arrived the kid told me that he didn't have the money and that his mother was expected to arrive at the home in about ten minutes.

No way in Hell am I going to wait around for someone's mommy when I have other customers waiting for their orders.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

Thought for the Day

I still wonder how folks on the Left manage to get out of bed in the morning (or early afternoon) without seriously hurting themselves.

A Message...

From Human Events Online:

If Republicans hope to win the presidency next year, they better find a candidate who is prepared to stand for very bold, very dramatic and very systematic change in Washington. Not only that, but they had better make the case that the left-wing Democrat likely to be nominated represents the failed statusquo : the bureaucracies that are failing, the social policies that are failing, the high tax policies that are failing, and the weakness around the world that has failed so badly in protecting America.

What the Republican Party needs to get through their collective skulls right now is the fact that the age of politics as usual is over.

No more compromise. No more deals. No more bipartisanship.

There must be a radical clean up of the mess that the Left has created. The partisans of socialism must be systematically removed from our public institutions. And if we are to have a future as the core nation of our civilization we must make a special effort to clean out the Augean Stables that our educational establishment has become under the tutelage of the Left.

And we must with volume and clarity tell the spoiled brats who imagine themselves to be the heirs of Marx and Lenin to grow up or get out.

Of course, if those idiots would just die, it would be nice too.

(Hat Tip to Dr. John Ray.)

And Now...

Usually I post this sort of thing over at My Own Private Universe but I've already updated it this week.

From 1001 Things Mr. Welch is not allowed to do in a roleplaying game:

976. I was not issued a flamethrower for my own personal amusement.

977. Disable plot device is not a real skill.

979. Mumus do not appear in the starting equipment list for a reason.

981. My last wish cannot be for Ragnarok.

982. Trailblaze means find a path, not cut down every tree between here and there.

984. In the middle of a black ops I cannot moonlight as tech support.

990. Even if he botches his medicine roll, I can't sue the medtech for malpractice.

991. "Kiww the Wabbit" is not a proper viking battlecry.

994. Corporate Pop Whore is not a real prestige class.

998. The script for the Baywatch movie does not cause more Sanity loss than the Necronomicon.

1000. I will stop referring to the powergamer as MinMaximus.

1001. No matter how bad the game is going, I won't stradle the table like Slim Pickens riding a bomb.

What I want to know is what is the deal with the accordion?

A Question

What I would like to know is how O.J. Simpson managed to acquire at least ten friends?

Jeff Ruby, owner of the steakhouse Jeff Ruby’s Louisville, asked O.J. Simpson to leave his restaurant minutes after Simpson arrived about 10:30 Friday night.

Told by a customer that the former football player had arrived at the restaurant, 325 W. Main St., Ruby said, he informed Simpson, “I am not serving you.”

“He had a party of 10 or 12 people,” said Ruby, who had served Simpson many times at his Cincinnati restaurants before the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman, of which Simpson was acquitted.

I'm pretty sure I know where I'm going for dinner if I ever visit Louisville.

“This was the only thing I could do for the victims’ families,” said Ruby. He said the 50 or so people in the private room where Simpson had been seated “stood up and applauded me” when Simpson left.

“And who walks in five minutes later?” asked Ruby.

Michael Jordan.

Sounds like a pretty cool place to eat.


This Is Cool

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present the Wikipedia article on one of the coolest guys in the known universe:

I used to spend hours and hours at the public library pouring over his books.

And he also plays the xylophone.

So Anyway

I've updated My Own Private Universe today.

Thought for the Day

One thing that I have noticed is that those who posture as mentally and morally superior people really are not the superior beings that they believe they are.

Reality is real. And the self-appointed betters are in practice some of the biggest dumbfucks on Earth.

A Suggestion


Years after the end of the war, American G.I.'s were often asked why they fought so hard in the Second World War and the answer was almost always the same:

"So my kids don't have to come over here and do this again"

Americans of that war and that generation, knew the high cost that comes from an incomplete victory and a policy of isolation because they had learned the lesson of 1919. The American nation was shocked at the cost of the First World War and chose to enter a period of isolation afterwards but the result was not peace, but the rise of Hitler and the Japanese Empire. The cost of the 'peace movement' that formed at the end of the First World War could be measured in real terms of the 52 million people world wide who died in the second period of conflict.

It was a conflict that could've been avoided. The conflict of the Second World War and its horrid cost in lives is what inspired a generation to do what it could to ensure that the lives spent in that conflict would not be wasted by the nation being forced in the next generation of American soldiers being sent to the soil of Europe to fight yet another war.

The narcissistic trash that makes up the membership of the so-called peace movement simply do not care whether you and your children live, or die, or suffer under the yoke of an unwashed barbarian. They plaster their cars with bumper sticker, carry signs, bang on drums, throw Frisbees, and perform other useless rituals so that they can feel good about themselves and show the world how morally superior they are. Never mind that they openly deny the fundamental fact which is the foundation of all valid moral law, that Human Life -- life as a rational being in control of one's own life -- is the standard of all moral values, and that those who would damage or destroy Human Life must be removed from human society and if necessary be destroyed.

The adherents of pacifism have so inverted their own mental processes that they look upon the perpetrators of mass slavery and mass murder as good and those who take up arms to defend the society of consent as the most depraved evil.

Those who profess to be a part of the "peace movement" need to understand that the emotion of "wanting peace" alone is almost never enough to actually gain the peace they so desire. On occasion, you have to demonstrate that you are willing to fight to be able to maintain the peace that you have. A large number of military people for over 60 years dedicated their lives to the cause of maintaining peace in Europe. Lives were lost, large amounts treasure were expened, and it took three generations to fully accomplish the mission of peace in Europe, but the true price of peace is never cheap or easy or fast. The cost of failure to remainvigilent fills the graveyards of battlefield after battlefield all across the world.

Quote of the Day

Today's Quote of the Day comes from the Libertas website:

Getting shot hurts.

-- President Ronald Reagan

I'll take your word for it, sir.

this fact was not stated by Bill Clinton or any of the leading
Democratic contenders for 2008 presidential election. I would be very
reluctant to attempt to independently verify this fact.

Let's try to remember the one hundred ten million who died under Communism.
