The Ugly Baby

Hot Air.com has the lowdown on just WHAT an ugly baby our border policy is and how it became that way.

Spew alert is in force on this one, so don't send me any bills for ruined keyboards if you fail to heed it.

Doctors Orders, Sweetheart!

Seems that Dr. Karen Weatherby carried out a five year study in Germany on the health effects that ogling a nice set of mammary glands can have on old dogs like me.

Her conclusion?: a ten minute ogle at a womans breasts is as healthy as a half hour workout in the gym. She stated that a "few minutes a day could cut the risk of stroke and heart attack almost in half", and that by "consistantly engaging in this practice, an average man could extend his life by as much as five years"! "There is NO question that gazing at breasts makes men healthier".

So the next time you want to go out on the town for a night of leering with the boys at the local "gentleman's club", just tell your wife that your doing it to improve your health and longevity. (Hmmm, I wonder if this could be considered as a medical expense by my HMO....)

UPDATE: Per request of one of my favorite citizens, I added something just for her under the fold.

Hope You like Yul Brenner, Lady H. This is one of ONLY two nude photographs ever taken of him.

Today is a special day...it's Holocaust Rememberance Day in a number of countries (unfortunatly not observed in the US).

This is the day set aside to remember all the victoms of the Nazi atrocities during WW2. It's a day of special meaning to me, as my own father was almost a fatality of those atrocities...as it is he was a victom of experiences that no human being should ever have to undergo. It's important to remember that ordinary human beings are capable of such bestial behaviour if we are ever going to reach the point that it will never happen again.

Dad was interviewed by Rev. James Dobson in two segments of his Focus on the Family radio program last week. I learned quite a few things about my father I had never known prior to listening to this broadcast. Use the link and go to the archives for April 24 and 25 to hear it for yourself.

I hope that after you hear it, you will try to delve more deeply into that period of time and learn more about what happened, and even more importantly, WHY it happened. As my Dad noted, most of the people involved weren't monsters; they were ordinary people in extraordinay times and under pressures that many of us of the baby boom generation and beyond can't even conceive of in our nightmares.

Oh, and it's also my birthday; and getting to gain some insights into my father through this broadcast was one of the best presents I've ever gotten.

52 years young. Battered and bruised, but still ready to fight the fight.

Turnabout is Fair Play

Mexican Constitution, Chapter 3, Article 33:

"The Executive of the Union (The President) has the exclusive right to expel from the national territory, immediately and without necessity of judicial proceedings, all foreigners whose stay it judges inconvenient. Foreigners may not, in any manner, involve themselves in the political affairs of the country."

Now match this legality to the words of Vincente Fox:
)President Vicente Fox) was quoted on Dec. 14,2005, as saying the United States’ attempt to secure our southern border by building a wall was “shameful and disgraceful.” Fox also said the U.S. action was an “increasing violation of human rights.”

Media reports on Dec. 21 quote Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez as saying, " Mexico is not going to bear, it is not going to permit, and it will not allow a stupid thing like this wall.”

Hyprocracy isn't a stranger in the course of politics anywhere, but at least most U.S. polititians at least try to hide it (Kennedy exempted), and are often discarded at the next election when they are found out engaging in it...

The strangest thing to me is that groups such as La Raza are blatent in their goal of "taking back" a large portion of the American south-west and creating a new country known as "Atzalan", yet they bleat about their "rights" whenever they are confronted on anything. And that fact isn't stressed in any of the major media...after all, if you try to point out the hyprocracy of hiding behind "rights" while attempting to overthrow the basis of those rights, you'll be labled a racist, and that just isn't the thing to do in todays PC culture.

My Dad

HERE is just ONE reason I'm proud of my dad.

He never talked about his childhood with us when we were growing up, except in the most general terms; it's only in the last two years that we have started to learn just some of the horrors he endured as a boy.

His main message is that we can never allow such horrors to occur again, and that God (HOWEVER you should choose to believe in him/her) is the only thing that can help you endure such experiences with (at least a semblance) of sanity afterwards. My Dad has never been religious, but he's always been a staunch believer in Christ and God.

There were many things I could never understand about my Dad when I was growing up, but now that I have begun to learn about his past, I can begin to understand him a great deal better. I'm glad he has broken his silence about the past, so I can, now that he's in the last years of his life, at least start to know the person he really is and why he is as he is before it's too late. Thats a gift that many children never have in their relationships with their parents, and I'm truly grateful for that.

Hizzonor Speaks

Having just read a fisking by the undisputed master of the genre, I feel compelled to try my own feeble skills at it too, albeit on an easy target.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an outspoken gun control advocate, said Friday there is "nothing wrong with people having guns" for recreational shooting, and even recalled his days as a Boy Scout marksman.

Be careful there your Honor..."seeing nothing wrong with guns" won't sit well with your fellow travelers on your side of the gun control issue, and I guess they didn't inform you that the Boy Scouts are a totally "Politically Incorrect" group these days; admiotting you were once a member in good standing might just hurt you with the "Progressive/(un)Reality Based" set.

Bloomberg is convening a summit of big city mayors next week to discuss what he calls the "scourge" of illegal guns.

Yes...."ILLEGAL GUNS" ARE a scourge. But Your side of the gun control debate just can't seem to apprehend the simple fact that guns are "illegal" when used by CRIMINALS, and CRIMINALS ARE CRIMINALS because they don't obey laws. You can try to make the guns the focus all you wish to, but unless and until you hold the CRIMNALS to account, with enforcement of laws ALREADY on the books, that "scourge" will continue unabated.

On his weekly radio show, the Republican explained that he still supports the Second Amendment and said he has no problem with hunting and target practice.

Thank you SO much for allowing us to assert our 2nd Amendment RIGHT...Your smugness can't be any more evident than in that statement.

"You want to go hunting and have a gun _ you know, I'm not opposed to that," he said.

Smugness reiterated? How gauche!

The 64-year-old mayor, who grew up in Medford, Mass., and occasionally refers to fond memories of Boy Scout camp, said he participated in riflery there and also owned a .22 caliber rifle for target practice on a shooting range.

WHAT!?! A young "skull full of mush" was allowed acces to a firearm?!?! Those camps you attended must have been straight out mayhem as depicted in some horror movies; after all, isn't it the contention of the gun control lobby that if citizens were allowed free access to fire arms that there would inevitably be a "Wild West" scenerio with "blood running in the streets"? What, you say that that DIDN'T happen, and you all had fun? HOW can this be?!?!

"I see nothing wrong with people having guns, but that doesn't mean you can have a gun every place, and concealed weapons _ or even weapons out in the open in big cities on city streets _ does not make a lot of sense to me," he said.

Hmmm...nope, I just checked, your honor, and there is nothing in the 2nd Amendment that says, "you may bear arms, EXCEPT when you are _______"
I see why it "doesn't make sense" to you, since from your standpoint, guns that are used for self-protection are, ipso facto, "illegal". Ever stop to consider that "illegal" guns are the biggest problem in those areas where the average citizen isn't allowed to own/carry a weapon?

Next week's gun summit will bring together about a dozen mayors, including those from Boston, Dallas, Philadelphia, Milwaukee, Seattle and Washington, D.C., to trade information and form a loose coalition for lobbying on Capitol Hill.

The other cities I understand, but Dallas?!? Hopefully those representatives from that fair city are attending just to let the other cities know just how full of crap they are in attempting to limit legal ownership/carrying of weapons they are. All the residents of my aquaintence from that fair city are definately on the opposit side of the issue from Mayor Bloomburg. Maybe he meant Austin?

"We want to talk about best practices, and how the mayors of all the big cities can get together and pressure Congress to do something about it, because it's a national issue," Bloomberg said.

Let's see "pressure Congress to restrict our 2nd Amendment rights".....Yep! JUST what I want MY local officials to do! Your correct in that this IS a National issue, Mayor. Just keep your nose out of it, YOU were hired to provide for YOUR city, not other cities.

My suggestion for "best practices"?

1) Provide supervised firing ranges for your citizens so that they may become proficient with their firearms. Training IS important.

2) ENFORCE those laws on the books pertaining to the use of a firearm in the commission of a crime.

3) Let the average citizen know that HE/SHE is responsible for his/her own protection against crime in the final analysis. "911" police response is a great concept, but the Police CAN'T, and NEVER HAVE been able to protect you at the time that a crime is being commited against your person, all they can do is deal with the aftermath.

4) Again, enforce laws against criminal acts involving weapons with severity and surety. NO plea bargains in gun charges.

We are all responsible for ourselves; no matter how much we may think we live in a society where that is not true, to deny that fact is to deny reality, let us have the tools to accomplish that goal of self protection.

Nannystate at it again

DAMMIT! Seems that the Republicans aren't just SPENDING like Democrats, but now they want to legislate like them too.

I can agree with the intent, but as it's proposed; it's just the first step on that old "slippery slope".

I think the same intent can be much more easily accomplished by just requiring that all porno sites use a new type of URL address....insted of ".com", require that they use something like ". por". That would make the use of protective filters against porn all that more efficient. Those that want to view porn would have unrestricted access, but Parents could ensure that their "little skulls full of mush" couldn't easily come across it.

Just a Little Humor

To get things started, here's a little humor I found in my mailbox... I hope you enjoy them like I did.

My Private Part Died Today!

An old man, Mr. Goldstein, was living the last of his life in a nursing
One day he appeared to be very sad and depressed. Nurse Tracy asked if
there was anything wrong.

"Yes, Nurse Tracy," said Mr. Goldstein, "My Private Part died today, and I
am very sad."

Knowing her patients were forgetful and sometimes a little crazy, she
replied, "Oh, I'm so sorry, Mr. Goldstein, please accept my condolences.

The following day, Mr Goldstein was walking down the hall with his
Private Part hanging out his pajamas, when he met Nurse Tracy.

"Mr. Goldstein," she said, "You shouldn't be walking down the hall like
that.. Please put your Private Part back inside your pajamas."

But, Nurse Tracy," replied Mr. Goldstein, " I told you yesterday that my
Private Part died."

"Yes, you did tell me that, but why is it hanging out of your pajamas?"

You gotta love this!!!!!!!!!!!

"Well, he replied, "Today's the viewing."


A man scanned the guests at a party and spotted an attractive woman standing alone.

He approached her and asked her name.

"My name is Carmen," she told him.

"That's a beautiful name," he said. "Is it a family name?"

"No," she replied. "I gave it to myself. It reflects the things I
like most ----- cars and men." "What's your name?" she asked.

"Beertits," he said

When Bill and Hillary first got married Bill said, "I am putting a
Box under the bed. You must promise never to look in it."

In all their 30 years of marriage, Hillary never looked. On the afternoon
of their 30th anniversary, curiosity got the best of her and she lifted
the lid and peeked inside. In the box were 3 empty beer cans and
$81,874.25 in cash.

She closed the box and put it back under the bed Now that she knew what
was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why there even was such a
box with such contents. That evening, they were out for a special
anniversary dinner.

After dinner, Hillary could no longer contain her curiosity and she
confessed, saying, "I am so sorry, Bill. For all these years, I kept my
promise and never looked into the box under our bed. However, today the
temptation was too much and I gave in. But now I need to know, why do
you keep the 3 beer cans in the box?"

Bill thought for a while and said, "I guess after all these years you
deserve to know the truth. Whenever I was unfaithful to you, I put an
empty beer can in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it

Hillary was shocked, but said, "Hmmm, Jennifer, Paula and Monica. I am
very disappointed and saddened by your behavior. However, since you are
addicted to sex I guess it does happen and I guess 3 times is not that
bad considering your problem"

Bill thanked her for being so understanding. They hugged and made their
peace. A little while later Hillary asked Bill, "So why do you have all
that money in the box?"

Bill answered: "Well, whenever the box filled up with empty cans, I took
them to the recycling center and redeemed them for cash

Reconnected, AT LAST

Rumors to the contrary, I haven't died, or ran away to be with an exotic circus dwarf.

Seems that there were some problems with my internet connection; as in, I didn't HAVE a connection due to some unfortunate circumstances....funny how IP's are so slow to tender services and so damned fast to cut you loose if you miss paying a phone bill you didn't even know you had....

Enough grousing about troubles, Let me do some cruising and see what I can come up with for you; assuming any of you have bothered to keep me on your reading lists.

Be back in a bit to share anything that might have caught my eye, so please reinstate me to your lists, because I'm aiming to get back in your good graces.
