I have changed my format and site. I'll leave this site up for posterity, but go here for the new and improved site.
This site is dedicated to everything that can be disagreed about. There are appropriate swear words and graphic descriptions so PLEASE, keep your children off this site. In fact, don't let your kids look at anything with a screen.

April 8, 2006 will be the one-year anniversary of the Mental Masturbator (a title shamelessly lifted from a Sammy Hagar song). On that date, I will be changing formats and maybe even the title of the blog.
Across the country there will be protests in favor of not protecting US sovereignty. These will occur on April 10, 2006. Every US citizen should show up to counter-protest. To help out, below is a list of locations of the protests or people who YOU should contact.

FBI Chief Robert Mueller testified before the Senate on Tuesday stating that Hezbollah is in the United States. I tried to find the actual Senate testimony but time constraints prevent me from doing that at this time. It would have been much easier if the mass media (not mainstream anymore) had covered the testimony. Unfortunately for citizens of the US, the mass media are open-border advocates, and bad news on the Mexican border is purposefully censured.
Michelle Malkin has the rest of the story.
I've been working on a post which compares the rhetoric supporting slavery in the US, and the arguments used by the open border crowd to justify mass immigration. While taking a break, I decided to check Townhall. Good thing! I found this gem from Thomas Sowell.
These jackasses just don't get it. Notice how many are Republicans. This update comes from FAIR.
The organizers of the "pro-criminal, we hate the USA" rallies which occurred across the country (these photos are of the LA rally) last weekend, urged participants to leave the Mexican flags at home and bring US flags only. It looks like some of them listened...kinda.
Enough bloggers who use blogspot now use "word verification" to prevent comment spammers that comment spam is almost non-existent. I've received one in the last two months.

Harry Browne, the Libertarian Party candidate for president in 1996 and 2000, has died at the age of 72.
For weeks now I have been making fun of Democrats who have penises, but no testicles. Indeed, much ado is being made, at least in Conservative circles, about the "sissy-fication" of the American male. Talkshow host Michael Savage for instance, said words to the equivalent of, "We teach our boys to be metrosexuals, and they [Islamofascists] teach theirs to be murderers. Who's gonna win that war?"
FAIR's Exclusive Eyewitness Account of Today's Committee Action
The subjects of our our greatest ally in the Middle East (according to the Bush Administration) were recently asked a poll question,
I found this on the DP World web site (note the dateline),
Dubai, 24 January 2006: - Global ports operator DP World today welcomed news that one of its senior executives, Dave Sanborn, has been nominated by US President George W. Bush to serve as Maritime Administrator a key transportation appointment reporting directly to Norman Mineta the Secretary of Transportation and Cabinet Member.
If you liked Billy Carter, you'll love Neil Bush. No beer products and advertising or redneck wit and wisdom. But the situation's the same. Neil Bush is in bed with Dubai and its confederation, the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He's getting money for it solely because he's the President's brother. And it's disturbing.
Neil Bush is a frequent visitor to and paid speaker in Dubai, showing up there right after 9/11 trying to get investors for his failed Ignite! educational software company. While there, "[Neil] Bush held talks with Dubai's Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid al-Maktoum and Information Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan on the 'world economy in light of recent events, as well as higher education in universities," Arab American Business reported. Bush was in Dubai so much that he e-mailed his wife of his desire for a divorce from his Dubai hotel room.
(Bush's relationship with the Dubaian and UAE royals has a lot to do with his Syrian-American Ba'athist boss, Jamal Daniel, who paid him $60,000 a year for only a few hours work. Bush's marriage to his second wife was held at Daniel's palatial Houston mansion.)
At a Saudi speech, he encouraged conferees to expand lobbying and PR efforts to change "perceptions" about the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. One wonders if the content is similar at his meetings and speeches in the Emirates. At least Billy Carter was a lot more aw-shucks honest. ("The only thing I can say is there is a hell of a lot more Arabians than there is Jews.")
It's not just Bush's paid speaking engagements courtesy of Dubai's Datamatrix. While Neil Bush is prominently displayed on the company's website (and listed as "Brother of US President George Bush"), so are Clintonistas Al Gore and Sandy Berger (he of document pants-stuffing fame).
It's also Neil Bush's paid speeches to the Zayed Center, which was funded by UAE's President, Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan, who recently died. As my friend, Rachel Lea Fish of The David Project, wrote in the Wall Street Journal:Sheik Zayed also funds the Abu Dhabi-based Zayed Center for Coordination and Follow-Up, a prominent think tank of the Arab League, founded in 1999. The Zayed Center, described on its Web site
"as the fulfillment of the vision of Sheikh Zayed," promotes Holocaust denial, anti-American conspiracy theories and hate speech in its lectures, symposiums and publications. In August 2002, the Los Angeles Times quoted Mohammed Murar, the executive director of the Zayed Center, saying about Jews that "the truth is they are the enemies of all nations." His comment came on the heels of a Zayed Center report stating that "the Zionists are the people who killed the Jews in Europe."
The Zayed Center has a history of giving Holocaust deniers like David Irving a forum to promulgate their ideas. In 1998, Sheik Zayed's wife donated $50,000 to finance the defense of infamous Holocaust denier Roger Garaudy in a French court.
In April 2002, the Zayed Center hosted Thierry Meyssan, the French author of "The Appalling Fraud," which claims that the U.S. military staged the 9/11 attacks. The center translated Mr. Meyssan's book into Arabic, hailed its publication and widely advertised the work. A month later, Lyndon LaRouche, the fringe political figure who has made disparaging remarks about Judaism, was an honored guest. Just last month, the center hosted Umayma Jalahma, a professor of Islamic Studies at King Faisal University, who declared: "The Jewish people must obtain human blood so that their clerics can prepare for holiday pastries."
Dubai Ports World is scheduled to take over operations at 22 U.S. ports, not six as previously reported by most major media.Frank Gaffney blogs on the port deal here, and here is his article on NRO.
According to the website of P&O Ports, the port-operations subsidiary of the London-based Peninsular & Oriental Steam Navigation Co. (P&O), DPW will pick up stevedore services at 12 East Coast ports including Portland, Maine; Boston; Davisville, R.I.; New York; Newark; Philadelphia; Camden, N.J.; Wilmington, Del.; Baltimore, Md.; and Virginia locations at Newport News, Norfolk, and Portsmouth.
Additionally, DPW will take over P&O stevedoring operations at nine ports along the Gulf of Mexico including the Texas ports of Beaumont, Port Arthur, Galveston, Houston, Freeport, and Corpus Christi, plus the Louisiana ports of Lake Charles and New Orleans.
Previously reported have only been P&O Ports' container operations at New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Miami, and New Orleans. Stevedore services also typically involve the loading and unloading of containers on and off cargo ships, as well as moving and storing containers, though often in separate facilities from where containers are initially loaded and unloaded from the cargo ships. Thus, while DPW will be operating the container terminal operations of only the six ports initially disclosed, DPW will be managing stevedore services, handling containers at a total of 21 ports, located along the Eastern seaboard from Maine to Virginia, and across the Gulf of Mexico from Texas to Louisiana.
I was going to post on the Crunchy Cons (conservative hippies) today, but I got a letter last night from a friend who was asking for some advice from someone smart, but not so much that they'd lost their common-sense. Naturally, my friend thought of me.
This was my reply,
Your friend goes golfing twice a month with the man who killed 3,000 of your dogs!? Are you out of your friggin' mind!?
You gotta live with your wife and kids, but if you give UAE the keys, you'll wish that you lived with your buddies.
This is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Hat tip: Mike's America
And here is my own blasphemous cartoon of Muhammad (may he rest in pieces),
"Normally, I'd never defile my body by eating those of infidels, but allied infidels are just sooo juicy. Except for the fat guy. He tasted like pigs smell."
The only problem I have, besides not being able to draw, is that I made Senator Leahy look like George Will, and my Cindy Sheehan is prettier that the live version. Michael Moore is easy: just draw a basketball, then make it look like a bum.
I took a day off to go to the Colorado House hearings, which was debating eight separate immigration reform bills. Because of GOP ineptitude and an influx of California leftists (who refused to lie in the bed they shat in), the Dems now control the Legislature, including the The House State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee where the bills were being heard.
"We can pick up illegal detainees all day and all night long, and we can transport them to county jails, but nothing is happening to them," said John Patterson of the Colorado Association of Chiefs of Police. "To pass an unfunded mandate down to the sheriffs will raise huge issues. Our jails are full, our prisons are full. We have no place to put these people."
How should this headline read?...
Now I remember why I like the periodical, National Review, so much. This quote comes from the February 27, 2006 issue.
I cobble together a verse comedy about the customs of the harem, assuming that...I can say what I like about Mohammed without drawing hostile fire. Next thing, some envoy from God-know-where turns up and complains that in my play I have offended the Ottoman empire, Persia, a large slice of the Indian peninsula, the whole of Egypt, and the kingdoms of Barca [Ethiopia], Tripoli, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco. And so my play sinks without a trace, all to placate a bunch of Muslim princes, not one of whom, as far as I know, can read but who beat the living daylights out of us and say we are 'Christian dogs.' Since they can't stop a man from thinking, they take is out on his hide instead.
-Beaumarchais (1784), from The Marriage of Figaro
On October 25, 2006, Roger Pilon, testified before the Senate on the constitutional limits on federal power and programs. During this testimony, he iterated some quotes of political leaders one is not likely to learn in our dumbed-down public school system, or even in higher ed (Oh wait, is there a difference?).
The federal Government has been hitherto limited to the specified powers, by the Greatest Champions for Latitude [the Federalists] in expounding those powers. If not only the means, but the objects are unlimited, the parchment [Constitution] had better be thrown into the fire at once.
-James Madison (1791), foolishly believed the Federalists could be trusted to keep their word regarding enumerated powers. They couldn't.
I hope your committee will not permit doubts as to constitutionality, however reasonable, to block the suggested legislation. (emphasis added)-Franklin D Roosevelt (1935), a note to the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee regarding a New Deal program.
To the extent that these new social virtues [New Deal policies] developed, they were tortured interpretations of a document [the Constitution] intended to prevent them.Rexford Tugwell (1965), a principle New Deal architect and Brain Trust member.
This article showed up in Pravda...oops, I mean, the Ft. Collins Coloradoan. The Colorado general assembly, with votes from Californians who refused to lie in the beds they shat in, changed hands recently from the GOP to the Dimocrats.
Two side notes:
This time for good.
Sorry about the hiatus on posting to this site. Not only have I been dealing with my dad's heart surgery, but I have also been helping my inlaws move...in Tennessee.
A show of hands. Who has ever read the LA Times?
I really didn't know what I was going to do with this story. I even wrote and re-wrote the title for this post three times; and though I'm still not happy with it, it's about as good as it gets. Such is life with the limited vocabulary of a plumber. Don't be fooled! I know no words with more than two syllables. My thesaurus and dictionary are always close at hand. But I digress.
First of all, I hope everybody had a fantastic Christmas! Mine was very good. Not because of meaningless gifts, but because my yeast was alive when I proofed it. This made for some fantastic bread and cinnamon rolls. Mmmmm, cinnamon rolls.
if this were true. I have received numerous emails about this. At first, I dismissed the first couple as the rantings of some of my favorite right-leaning Bush haters. I understand why some people hate Republicrats. For about a decade, I was right there with them. I have since given up on the idea that there will be a viable third party (although discontent within the parties seems to be pretty high).
Have ya seen the White Flag commercial?
John Murtha is being Muther Sheehaned. The Democrats, ever on the lookout for shell-shocked veterans who share their worldview, found one in a "safe" district who was willing to go out on a limb and trust poll numbers. The anti-war MSM continues to build Murtha up, despite an immediate and overwhelming repudiation of what he was proposing.
This post is purple for a reason. If you don't know why, you should be banned from voting...for life.
