These would be hilarious if they werent real, aw hell some of them are still funny. But some people dont laugh they just nod, and that scares me.
I like media matters, there a pretty good site, my only comlaint is that they spend to much time on Fox, we all know fox or Faux News is crap. I can understand that i could be several peoples full time jobs shoveling the bull shit that Bill O'Reilly spits out. But im more interested in how the "liberal" media is doing you know the rest of the MSM. I still laugh when I hear about the liberal media. when was the last time I heard the media scream for an end to the war or an impeachment or universal health care or a living wage or an end to the saipan disaster or helping AIDS victims in africa or the crushing poverty around the world. these are liberal social agendas, and Ive almost never heard any of them discussed seriously in the MSM. Ive heard plenty about the estate tax and how brutally unfair it is for the 1.3% of people in this country who have multimillion dollar estates they are willing to their children. Thats just cruel why should they pay taxes twice on their million dollar homes just so some poor slob in the city can feed her child, or maybe even give an education to a minority! sorry i got a little ahead of myself with that part about a minority getting a decent public education in this country. Seems to me the only real concerns of the conservatives are Abortion, Taxes and Gay marriage. I would think that if the conservatives were so amped up about "protecting the sanctity of marriage" then they would boycott any tv station that would air who wants to marry a millionaire, they would never listen to Rush "3rd marriage so far" Limbaugh, but the conservatives dont care about protecting marriage they just think that men beingwith men is Icky. they just dont like it. women with women never seems to bother people as much, hmm I wonder why that is... Thats fine your entitled to your opinion, you dont like gays thats fine go and sulk and bitch about the guy who cuts your hair thats fine. But thats not how the government is supposed to work, I hold the government to higher standards than that. Theres more id like to write but i dont have time. peace

holy shit this is funny, whats bad is this is obviously ment to be very sarcastic and yet its not far off of a conversation ive had before, well ok only the part about forget the doctors i can feel it in my heart.
god damn, this is good stuff
Oh speaking of gueatemala I talked to the minister of my church and asked if they were going down again and he said no the youth group is going to New Orleans to help there but that there are a few people interested in going on their own. so I may join up with that group. ok gtg peace
A perfect example of a first amendment violation. A student at a university who is also an air force veteran stood several feet in front of a recruiting table at a job fair with a sign on chest saying, "Recruiters Lie, Don't Be Deceived." He was told he needed a permit to be at the job fair, he said Iâ€™m just standing here as a student at my own university, I donâ€™t need a permit. So he was arrested for exercising his freedom of speech, which is a felony in the United States of Bush. The university is conducting an investigation and may drop the charges. Obviously the ACLU has stood up to defend the student. There was the start of a clash between the anti-war Air Force vet and a Marine that had just gotten back from Iraq. I want to make an insulting comment about the intelligence of the flyboys vs. the jarheads, but that would be rude. And Iâ€™m not a big fan of insulting people who are trained to inflict pain without remorse. The battle is not over, the tides are turning. Its like a Rocky movie, we've been getting beatin on by the big russian guy of a few rounds, he seems not even human, when finially the under dog starts wearing him down and the hostile crowd swings cause of the undeniable heart of Rocky. Its been a long fight but were not down yet, and the big russian is starting to wobble, he hasn't hit the mat yet but hes hurting. We still need to land the big right hook to drop him for good, we may need to wait till the 2006 elections to take the congress back before we can get a ten count. I have not yet begun to fight.

On a sad note, a friend of mine that I may have mentioned before... or maybe Ive written abut 3 or 4 posts about her, may have called her my dream girl once or twice, had moved to colorado for the winter to be a Ski instructor, she had only been working for about 3 weeks when she had an accident on the slopes and broke her leg. From what I hear broke it quite badly in several places, her father flew out to see her. I havent tried to call yet but I will, i was told buy a friend of hers that they had not been able to reach her and then I had family obligations but I will probably give her a call this afternoon. Im sure she will be ok but my heart goes out to her.
Get well lil' muffin.
Oh well i suppose I can mention other lovely ladies I saw recently. There was an old friend from school who I have probably loved at some level for oh 15 years now. Shes just a sweetheart, gorgous smart funny all of those things to but just the most sincerly nice person that I may have ever known. to be honest I think she would be a better dream girl than the one I call my dream, but of course she lives in boston now, and she introduced me to her boyfriend who came down from boston for christmas so it must be fairly serious. oh well another beautiful woman lost.
One more, the cousins went out to the bar after the family christmas party and this cute girl walks in and I instantly recognize her but cant figure out who she is for the life of me. finially i figure out that i was the photographer from my friends wedding. I had her number in my phone so i was able to get her name, I had gotten her number from my friend and not form her so i never called her. But we chated for a while and she seems like a really sweet girl. Has an increadible smile, so of course she then introduces me to her boyfriend. Damn.
Ok I did see one guy who had a sister that I was friends with when I was really little, the last time I saw her she was lookin pretty damn good and shes Irish which is always a plus in my book. I should have gotten her digits off of her brother, ive known the family long enough that there probably woulnd be anything odd about that. She lives in town and so there is at least some chance at that one. who knows...
Well Merry Christmas to all, christian or not.

The Rude Pundit
Thats the link because when I pasted it here the bullet points didnt really follow.
The Loyal Citizen's Contract With the American Government:Considering the responses of Bill Kristol, the Wall Street Journal, and others to President Bushâ€™s affirmation of warrantless domestic spying by the NSA, perhaps itâ€™s time to separate the wheat from the chaff in this America. The Rude Pundit believes a new "contract" of sorts is needed between the government and the American people. Howzabout this:"I (the undersigned) believe President George W. Bush when he says that the United States of America is fighting a 'new kind of enemy' that requires 'new thinking' about how to wage war. Therefore, as a loyal citizen of President Bushâ€™s United States, my signature below indicates my agreement to the following:"1. I believe wholeheartedly in the Patriot Act as initially passed by Congress in 2001, as well as the provisions of the Domestic Security Enhancement Act. Therefore, I grant the FBI access to:"a. my library records, so it may determine if I am reading material that might designate me an enemy of the nation;"b. my financial records, including credit reports, so it may determine if I am contributing monetarily to any governmentally proscribed activities or organizations;"c. my medical records, so it may determine if my prescriptions, injuries, or other conditions are indicative of terrorist activity on my part;"d. any and all other personal records including, but not limited to, my store purchases, my school records, my web browsing history, and anything else determined as a 'tangible thing' necessary to engage in a secret investigation of me."I agree that I do not need to be notified if my records have come under scrutiny by the FBI, and, furthermore, I agree that no warrant is needed for the FBI to engage in this examination of my personal records. Additionally, I agree that the FBI should be allowed to monitor any groups it believes may be linked to what it determines to be terrorist activity."2. I believe that the President of the United States has the power to mitigate any and all laws passed by the Congress and that he has such power granted to him by his status as Commander-in-Chief in the Constitution as well as the 2001 Authorization of Military Force, passed by the Congress, which states that the President can use 'all necessary and appropriate force' in prosecution of the war. Therefore, I grant the United States government the following powers:"a. that the National Security Agency, under the direction of the President, may tap my phone lines and intercept my e-mail without warrant or FISA oversight;"b. that the President may hold me or other detainees without access to the legal system for a period of time determined by the President or his agents;"c. that the President may authorize physical force against me or other individual detainees in order to gain intelligence and that he may define whether such physical force may be called 'torture':"d. that the President may set aside any and all laws he sees as hindering the gathering of intelligence and prevention of terrorist acts for a period as time determined by the President, including, but not limited to, rights to political protest."I agree that the Judicial and Legislative branch should be allowed no oversight of these activities, and that such oversight merely emboldens the terrorists. I also agree that virtually all of these activities may be conducted in complete secrecy and that revelation of these activities amount to treasonous behavior on the part of those who reveal these activities to the press and the citizenry."3. Finally, this document is my statement that I believe the President of the United States and the entire executive branch, as well as all departments and agencies involved, as well as all of its personnel, will treat these powers I have granted them with utmost respect. I believe that these powers will not be abused, nor will any of the information I have given them permission to examine be misinterpreted. However, should such abuse or misinterpretation occur, I agree that such actions are mere errors and no one should be subject to investigation, arrest, or employment action as a result."My consent freely given,"(Your signature)"C'mon, Michelle Malkin, Byron York, John Hinderaker, and all the rest of you good Bush lovers. Sign on up. Send it in to the White House. Let 'em know that you have nothing to hide. Or nothing you don't care about sharing.
Call me simple but thats funny.
in case you cant see it the guy in the background is showing off his shirt that says fuck this shit. just sorta random obsenity. id prefer it if you knew what it was in reference to or if it had an actual measage to say but random obsenity is fun too.

Cool site, have some good books and bumperstickers for sale. Not exactly subtle of tactful but maybe thats why I like it. Oh and once you see the site, youll be none to shcoked to find out that I found it off a link from The Rude Pundit. I like the rude one, real cool guy... I guess i mean guy as in person not male, cause to tell you the truth I dont remeber if the Rude One is a man or a woman. I was getting emails from t-shirt hell for a while before I realised that the main author is a woman.none of this matters im rambling.
I saw something the otherday that combined these two, it was a book of favorite bumperstickers. something like a bumpersticker never changed the world. Im pretty sure it was on buzzflash in there sale section. It looked interesting. there was only one I can remeber now it was,"of course it hurts, youre being fucked by an elephant" and theres the classic GOP elephant in the background.
I should also point out that see sharp press is into anarchy and music theory. Its just a funny combination, or at least its funny to me.

Theres a list of murders with the middle name of wayne. Its a surprisingly long list.
The second one is for a radio show that an old college buddy told me about. called coast to coast am. He had told me a while back about some government plan to switch all radio over to digital, not to big a deal other than that unless you own a new car you need to buy a converter if you want to listen to the radio. maybe this was ment to help boost sales of satelite radio, who knows. That part is a little annoying but really not that big a deal and ive heard other sources say is probably going to happen. Its theis next part that concerns me. Supposedly they then were going to broadcast white noise on all analog frequencies, to make it impossible to use any analog radio devices. so throw out your walkis talkies. Ok theres far more important things than the walkie talkies, even though they are fun. Frist off theres the Ham Radio guys, now this could make all of there rather expensive equipment worthless. But there is another issue with that. The Ham raidos are one of the last failsafes in the case of a major national emergency. For many years now the Ham radios have been ready in the case of a total communications failure (like phones going down, not the washinton type where no one listens). Now I havent been able to find anything else to be able to substanciate this and so I am far from calling it fact, but I am curious.
oh so heres the site already.

As much as I love vast stretches of nothing follow by inescrutable boredom I think Iâ€™m going to avoid Kansas. As much as I love a state the teaches religion in public schools and calls it science, this latest attack against diversity is pretty sad. A student in Kansas City was suspended for a day and a half for committing one hell of a crime, he was speaking in tongues about anarchy and murder, er wait no. A friend asked him for a dollar in Spanish and so he replied with "no problema." Now obviously you wouldnâ€™t want to corrupt the minds of the other students with heresy like that. The school claimed it had warned him before not to speak Spanish in school. I bet their foreign language department sucks. They warned him not to speak Spanish in school, ok I can see being angry if he was talking during class, but then the fact that it was Spanish is mute, because it would still be a problem if it were English. Gotta love it when dead nuts center of the â€œgreat melting potâ€� is so afraid of diversity than they shun a student for speaking in the second most common language in the US. Ok after news of this got out in the area the school rescinded the punishment, but that doesnâ€™t change the fact that they punished him in the first place.
Iâ€™d love to see Bill Oâ€™Reillyâ€™s take on this one. Heâ€™d probably be made that they didnâ€™t suspend him for longer. Although heâ€™d only really go off the deep end if he found out that after they kicked the kid out they said happy holidays instead of merry Christmas.
Happy Holidays everybody!
I bet bill hates that happy christmahanakwansaka commercial, which personally I think is hilarious.

Sinuses, they suck. ask anyone with allergies, including me. or my boss who just had his sinuses surgically removed.
Now hereâ€™s a big one.
The Birth Canal. Ok I donâ€™t have one of these but I am probably more intimately aware of their shortcomings than most 23 year old guys. this is due to my job which deals with pregnancy and things of that nature. Ok so the big obvious downsides of the human birth canal. Ask any mother; itâ€™s not large enough of the human skull to pass through easily. Our ass is too small and our head is too big. There was one person pointing out that there is a scale that can be used to figure the gestation period of any mammal but a human based on the size of the brain. Based on that the human should be pregnant for 11 months but then the head would be even larger and wouldnâ€™t pass through the pelvis of the mother.
Another compelling argument is that if god created everything then he created cancer and AIDS smallpox and anthrax. So basically if you believe in intelligent design then you think god is a dick. And I personally wont sit around and let them bad mouth a god that I donâ€™t believe in anyway. I may need to explain that a little better if god designed us 6000 years ago and gave us all these nice fun diseases to die from then he is a rather cruel and twisted individual. If you need more proof look at what smallpox does to a person, all I have to say there is as your skin falls off in sheets and a tube sock looking thing falls out of your ass which is the liner of your small intestine. Thatâ€™s a pretty sick individual who designed that shit. If god designed this place then why did he make up the way he did? Is he just an asshole? Maybe god created life in the primordial swamps billions of years ago and just let it go to see what would happen. If there is a god then I think this was his intent. I'm going to use the term he for god causeâ€™â€¦ well just cause. I think god was bored being omnipotent and alone so he made some friends one day the fundamentalist like to make you believe that he build GI Joes to play with, I think he built himself an ant farm. He created a world and threw a bunch of resources on it and then sparked life, then he just sat back and watched to see what would happen. I think he has a few different ant farms around the universe that he watches cause while thereâ€™s a lot going on, no one wants to watch the same channel all the time. So personally I donâ€™t really think thereâ€™s a god but I there is one, then I think thatâ€™s how he did things. Maybe from time to time he shakes the ant farm just to fuck with â€˜em, and maybe occasionally he reaches in and plays with one of the ants but basically I think he just sits back and takes it all in. just wondering what those crazy ants will do next. Playing with GI Joes you always know whoâ€™s going to win, but if you just let the ants go and do there own thing you never know what could happen, although usually they just dig tunnels and run around like mad all the time. So theres my take on the universe, am I right? Probably not. So it goes.
Three engineering students were sitting around talking between classes,
when one brought up the question of who designed the human body.One of the
students insisted that the human body must have been designed by an Electrical
Engineer because of the perfection of the nerves and synapses.Another disagreed,
and exclaimed that it had to have been a Mechanical Engineer who designed the
human body. The system of levers and pullies is ingeniuos."No," the third
student said "you're both wrong. The human body was designed by a Civil
Engineer. Who else but a Civil Engineer would have put a toxic waste line
through a recreation area?"
Ive heard it before but i just copied it from a comment on Daily Kos, posted by Tamman2000, just want to give credit where credit is due. and actually i just found another great post from the same person.
This is an excelent point, the idea of a theory is that it can tell you what direction things are heading, or at least try to. what exactly does ID predict will happen to us? ID is fine, its just not science. its just the leading edge of a sword cutting thru our education system. I am starting to truely believe that the religious right is trying to create a new dark ages. I understand that ignorance is bliss but this is rediculus. And its odd how much the bible and specificly jesus talked about the meek and helping the poor and that now our big religious figures are premoting intolerance and hatered from their mansions. jesus didnt ask money of his deciples so that he could live a life of oppulence. I might not be a religious scolar but i know that much. these televangalist preachers who wish the wrath of god on dover PA because the town booted every official off the school board who voted for ID. These preachers are making millions of dollars every year. this is not the simple life of prayer that they seem to talk about in the bible, so im not sure why any christian whould lisen to them on religious matters. oh well fuck pat robertson.
The real problem (none
Has nothing to do with people believing there is a designer.
The problem is trying to get inteligent design into the science class
room. Even if it turns out that we were designed, I would have to object
to the way ID is being pushed. You see, there is no science in ID. ID, as
it exists now, predicts nothing. There is no hypothesis to be tested.
As soon as somebody says "The theory of ID predicts this will
happen/should be observed under these circumstances" I will drop my objection. I
am quite sceptical that this will happen though, I don't see any testable
predictions that could concievably come from ID...

The Rude Pundit
Has an interesting point in their latest rant, points out that as G W made his speech in front of the ugly ass propaganda double speak backdrop his wife Laura was thirty miles away at the white house showing off their Christmas decorations. Its a bit disturbing really. I mean it is the white house so of course its going to have incredibly expensive decorations and food but its the fact that this husband and wife team were speaking of such opposites at the exact same time that really makes this stand out. One speaks of morals and courage honor and sacrifice of a nation while the other talks about extravagance and decadence its really quite interesting.The juxtaposition is exquisite, I would love the irony if it werenâ€™t for the people dying.
And I want to repeat this less anyone ever forget, Iraq has never attacked us. 16 of the 19 highjackers were from Saudi Arabia, a fundamentalist nation which has committed unknown numbers of crimes against its own people. Has anyone ever considered attacking Saudi Arabia for its hand in the crime? I hate to always sound Orwellian but this war had nothing to do with 911 and only a little about the Oil. This war like many was about power and money. ok i gotta go.
