Happy Friday

How many times do I need to say this?

STOP drunk driving while masturbating to the porno you are watching on your dashboard.

You know, I am getting tired of repeating myself.

Why are elections important?

Here's why.

4 links...

Why does this area rock?

Ahh, yes, the elephant in the living room.

Your U.S. Senate, not to be seen as just in the business of just regulating flags, is now- with your money - spreading misinformation about An Inconvenient Truth. Lovely.

And say a novena for the man.

More warming

Following up on yesterdays "embarassment" in the Wall Street Journal is this:

The nation's top climate scientists are giving "An Inconvenient Truth,"
Al Gore's documentary on global warming, five stars for accuracy.

Hmmm, must be a bunch of lefty wackos though right?

Actually, no.

What A Disgrace

There is still a debate about evolution too, right jackass?

So let's review...

2 Oil Whores are "running" the country.

Gas prices are at record highs.

We are at war in an oil rich country.

Oil companies are making the highest profits in history.

These companies, not happy enough with their puppets in the White House or the billions in subsidies those puppets gave to them the war they started on thier behalf or their billions in profits, are now are using their excess billions to muddy the water on the single greatest threat to civilization ever.

And what do we get from these corporate paymasters and their little puppet besides junk science... well, flag burning, gay marriage and steroids of course.

What leadership.

More misinformation here from CNBC based on an "embarrassment" from the WSJ.

Wakefield reacts...

"I remember him not being too bright."

Nothing to see here...

If we keep ignoring it, it'll probably just go away on its own.

Net Freedom

Big Vote Tomorrow - Call Your Congressmen Right Now. I just called Boxer and Feinstein and it took me less than 3 minutes (including hold time).

Here's the breakdown.


Eric Wilbur via DirtDogs:

... Crawford admitted to using steroids and HGH while with Boston from 2000-01. Check out a few of his comments, which also seem to shed a controversial light on the Sox clubhouse at that time.

“During minor league spring training with the Red Sox in 1999, some of the other guys saw I was hurting,” he writes. “They told me that if I took this stuff, it would make the pain go away and cut my recovery time in half. Shoot, why not? I'm just a country boy; I didn't even think twice.

“I was probably using the most back in 2001, when I made the Red Sox rotation out of spring training. About that time I was getting pretty big, and another player introduced me to human growth hormone, which had started to make the rounds in the majors. I got a kit with two bottles: One was filled with some kind of water, and the other was filled with these tiny crystals. I put a few drops into the crystals and -- poof! -- it became liquid. I thought, Boy, what the hell are you putting into your body? But I did it anyway.

“Back in 2001, I thought I was the man. I had no shame, and I thought nobody could touch me. One time, I walked right into the Red Sox clubhouse with a bunch of needles wrapped in a towel and left them on my chair. A few minutes later, one of my teammates came running over, saying, ‘Paxton, someone knocked your chair over and your freaking needles are all over the floor!’ Man, we just died about that. He said it was the funniest thing he'd ever seen, told me I was nuts. But that's the way it was back then.”

Yeah, funny stuff.

A Stumbling Giant

Interesting weekend, to say the least. ... And by interesting, I mean intoxicated.

Anyway, I read this and thought it was an interesting take.

There is a lesson in this. America is viewed as weak at the moment, distracted and drained because of Iraq—and everybody out there is taking advantage of it. Too often, Americans tend to see other players on the international stage as merely part of the backdrop, conforming to our movements or remaining stationary while we get our act together. In fact, most of these world leaders are aggressive players in their own right who will push back, and hard, when they see softness. Like Libya, they are betting that George W. Bush is too out of resources and time to protest while they make a mockery of his agenda and his leadership.

Here's how Oakland rolls

If you watch South Park, than you know we here in San Francisco are smug. Smug enough to smell our own gas and nearly pass out daily from our own self-congratulatory haze. Well, that may be true, but Oakland is a bit different. Oakland is a little rougher. They don't have time for smugness, or for that matter, traffic laws. You've all seen how crazy the Raider games are, but it doesn't stop there...

From today's Chronicle:
Esteban Loaiza, 34, was stopped on Wednesday morning by the California Highway Patrol after he was observed at 2:40 a.m. driving his Ferrari in excess of 100 mph on Interstate 580 near San Leandro.

He was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after officers detected what the CHP statement called "a distinct odor of alcohol ... on the driver's breath."

Loaiza, who failed several sobriety tests, was transported to North County Jail in Oakland, where he spent the night.

Today's daytime starting pitcher for the Oakland Athletics: Esteban Loaiza.

What will we tell the children?

Holy Crap

This one is foul
Kevin Millar, who was in the Twin Cities with Baltimore over the weekend, left a gift for Francona in the visiting manager's office. The gift: a bag of dog poop. ``It said, `Here's to Francona,' " the skipper recounted. ``I opened it, reached in, I didn't realize what it was. I just called him back and said, `Any chance you had of ever coming back here just went right down the toilet with that bag.' " . . .

Larry the Cable Fraud

If your God-I-Wish-He-Was-Dead-list looks like mine does, than the name Larry the Cable Guy's name appears right at the top of it (and in the fifth slot as well, that's how much he sucks). Anyway, adding to the overall suckitudeitiveness of the hacktackular git'r'done'r is this video- one I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Wow, a mullet, sneakers and khakis, that's certainly blue collar.


If you haven't read Robert F Kennedy Jr's new article in Rolling Stone, you should. His claim is that Kerry won Ohio, and that Republicans stole it, a claim that I agree with for the sheer fact that once you steal your first election (see Florida, Jeb Bush, 2000) you don't just "hope" to win the second one. Crime families don't work that way, and certainly the Bush crime family doesn't- 1992 was not going to be allowed to happen again. Just ask vote counters/Bush campaign heads Katherine Harris and Kenneth Blackwell. The case Kennedy lays out is pretty stunninmg and The NYTimes' Bob Herbert agrees.

An Inconvenient Truth

So I finally got to see it. Absolutely unbelievable. Go see it now. One of the best docs ever and a truly mindblowing presentation.

Whoa Nelly...

"I'd rather they beat up on him than me or Chertoff."

What leadership.

Also, sorry about the lack of posts, I have run into some blogger/work pc issues.

Busy day...

OK, so the senate rejected the why-won't-you-just-go-back-in-the-closet-and-let-us-live-in-1950's-white-christian-nostalgialand amendment, and, in case you missed it, Jon Stewart lays out the case. (Best. interview. ever.)

And the 9-11 widows respond to Ann Cunthair.

CNN advertises the wonders of LSD

For the love of Christ make it stop. (via Atrios)

"Good point."

ahhh, what? He could have ended his report with "Aren't zebras weird?" and Blitzer would have probably said "Good point."

Anyway, after you simmer down from that, watch how a visibly pissed off Keith Olbermann just destroys Shrill O'Really. I watched this last night and was just stunned- even at the point that I am still able to be shocked by the depths this man will go to to not get a point right.

More from President Fat Tony...

Mike Malloy:
Remember the statement by Martin Niemoller, the German Protestant pastor who in the 1930s made his famous lamentation that begins, “First, they came for the Jews . . .”? The US Supreme Court now has added a category of those in this country no longer protected by the Constitution: Government whistleblowers. In a 5-4 ruling (the deciding vote cast by the man the Senate Democrats agreed to confirm even though he gave every indication of his neo-fascist, Bush Crime Family loyalty, Sammy “The Fish” Alito) that is being called a victory for Bush, the Justices said the 20 million Americans who work as public employees do not have free-speech protections guaranteed by the First Amendment. The First Amendment, therefore, has now been effectively nullified, joining the Fourth (the need for a proper warrant when searching for evidence) and the Eighth (the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment), the Fifth (No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury). The ruling was necessary in protecting the many illegal activities of the Bush Crime Family that might be witnessed and reported by federal employees. This decision will keep the crimes secret. Those inclined to report the crimes will now be subject to arrest, trial and imprisonment. Clearly, the impact of this latest move to totalitarianism will be sweeping, from silencing police officers who fear retribution for reporting department corruption, to subduing public employees who want to reveal incompetence (or worse ) where it concerns, for example, government hurricane preparedness or terrorist-related security, or lies told in launching a military attack against another nation, or evidence withheld that might show Bush Crime Family involvement in the September 11, 2001, terror attack on the US. The seriousness of this Supreme Court decision is further magnified by considering that the ruling overturned an appeals court decision that said Los Angeles County prosecutor Richard Ceballos was constitutionally protected when he wrote a memo questioning whether a county sheriff's deputy had lied in a search warrant affidavit. Ceballos had filed a lawsuit claiming he was demoted and denied a promotion for trying to expose the lie. In other words, the US Supreme Court has decided that revealing a search warrant was issued based upon a lie is itself a crime. Forget the illegality of the warrant to begin with. Reporting its illegality to higher authorities is now the crime. Astonishing. Unbelievable. And given the nazification of the highest court in the US, expected. Whistleblowers are now added to the list of those unprotected by law, a list that includes those who would demonstrate against the Bush Crime Family, those who would petition the government for redress of grievances, those who are accused of an act of terror (an act defined exclusively by the Bush Crime Family), either “political terror” or against property owned by corporations, an activity that now includes impeding the flow of traffic such as might be caused by union members on strike in front of a factory. Astonishing. Unbelievable. Expected. Pastor Niemoller’s statement in its entirety: “First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist. Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

Thanks to my brother mike for sending this. I have nothing to add except my own disgust.
