"I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. They are so unlike your Christ" --Gandhi

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -Theodore Roosevelt

"A little revolution, now and then, is a good thing." -Thomas Jefferson-

"In my lifetime, we've gone from Eisenhower to George W. Bush. We've gone from John F. Kennedy to Al Gore. If this is evolution, I believe that in 12 years, we'll be voting for plants." -Lewis Black-

"When you're born in the world you're given a ticket to the freakshow; when you're born in America you're given a front-row seat. And some of us in the front row have notebooks and pencils." -George Carlin

C. Brian Smith on dining with Dubya: Politics & Power:
Topic: Politics and Law 5:41 pm EST, Jan 13, 2009

Your place. What an odd way to refer to the White House.

My windshield wipers have packed it in for the night, making it difficult to determine exactly where the visitor’s-entrance checkpoint is. I roll to a sudden stop as a heavily armed guard and a man in a black suit step in front of my car.

The sight of metal detectors and dogs reminds me that I am carrying one half of a marijuana cigarette in my Camel Lights pack.

Just... wow...

NFL Shop - NFL Jerseys: Minnesota Vikings: Search for
Topic: Miscellaneous 4:57 pm EST, Jan 13, 2009

Now this one will take a teeny bit of explanation. I was looking for one of these for a friend of mine who has a jersey for Terrell Owens, who is a bit of an ass, and worse, he plays for Dallas. So I told it, "I just want to see women's, because that's who I'm getting it for." Well it didn't have the player I wanted.

But if you scroll to the bottom, guess what else appears to show up...

Now to be semi-fair, it shows up across all the searches, but really???

Lindsay Lohan: I Work As Hard As Scarlett Johansson
Topic: Movies 1:02 pm EST, Jan  8, 2009

But what hurts me the most is that I work just as hard as any other actress around my age, like Scarlett Johansson, but I just don't get the opportunities that they get because people are so distracted by the mess that I created in my life.

ummmm... Right! Duh! I'm Sure Michael Vick worked just as hard as other football players. Too bad about that thing with hooking up dogs balls to car batteries. But that doesn't have anything to do with what he does on the... Oh wait, it does. People don't want to deal with someone who's a total whack job.

Bribes Corrode Afghans’ Trust in Government -
Topic: War on Terrorism 8:41 pm EST, Jan  2, 2009

Want to be a provincial police chief? It will cost you $100,000.

Want to drive a convoy of trucks loaded with fuel across the country? Be prepared to pay $6,000 per truck, so the police will not tip off the Taliban.

Need to settle a lawsuit over the ownership of your house? About $25,000, depending on the judge.

It's called Vietnam in the mountains, as Iraq has become Vietnam in the desert. This kind of crap is why we can't win this war and it's because we're all to happy to take the easy way out and buy our way to a solution, when buying the opening is only a stopgap measure. What's worse is the bribes cause an already untenable situation to degenerate further, faster.

This route is insanity. We've been down it multiple times before and ALWAYS, it leads to places we don't want to be. Why the hell are we going down it again?

Cornyn Indicates Senate GOP Will Resist Seating Al Franken
Topic: Politics and Law 1:46 pm EST, Dec 31, 2008

I expect the Senate would have a problem seating a candidate who has not duly won an election.

Really John? Then explain why they seated Bush in 2000 after the Florida debacle and again in 2004 after Ohio?

Houston - Hair Balls - Police Get The Wrong House In Galveston, Allegedly Assault 12-Year-Old Girl
Topic: Society 2:22 pm EST, Dec 19, 2008

It was a little before 8 at night when the breaker went out at Emily Milburn's home in Galveston. She was busy preparing her children for school the next day, so she asked her 12-year-old daughter, Dymond, to pop outside and turn the switch back on.

As Dymond headed toward the breaker, a blue van drove up and three men jumped out rushing toward her. One of them grabbed her saying, "You're a prostitute. You're coming with me."

Dymond grabbed onto a tree and started screaming, "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy." One of the men covered her mouth. Two of the men beat her about the face and throat.

As it turned out, the three men were plain-clothed Galveston police officers who had been called to the area regarding three white prostitutes soliciting a white man and a black drug dealer.

Let's see, miss the target area by two blocks. Check. Go after a twelve year old black girl, not a 20 year old white one. Check. Go in with plainclothes guys who don't say who they are instead of uniform guys. Check. Arrest said twelve year old girl FROM HER GRADE SCHOOL three weeks later for "assaulting an officer." Check.

Way to go guys. The only way this could be worse is if someone had caught it all on video. Rodney King + a true version of Tawana Brawley = Holy Sheep Dip!

Court weighs absentee ballots
Topic: Politics and Law 1:44 pm EST, Dec 18, 2008

The hearing in a packed room began with Justice Paul Anderson testily responding to Roger Magnuson, the lead attorney for Coleman, who compared Minnesota's recount to the 2000 presidential election dispute that focused on the counting of ballots in Florida. "This is not Florida," said Anderson.

Oops. When a judge rejects an argument like that, it doesn't bode well. When it's a state Supreme Court, that really doesn't bode well.

Vitter faulted for derailing auto bailout - Breaking News from New Orleans - Times-Picayune -
Topic: Current Events 1:32 pm EST, Dec 15, 2008

"I don't know what Sen. Vitter has against GM or the United Auto Workers or the entire domestic auto industry; whatever it is, whatever he thinks we've done, it's time for him to forgive us, just like Sen. Vitter has asked the citizens of Louisiana to forgive him, " said Johnson, president of Local 2166. Otherwise, Johnson said of Vitter, it would appear, "He'd rather pay a prostitute than pay auto workers."

Ouch. On the other hand, if we're talking about David Vitter, a prostitute might give him a blow job. An auto worker is just going to give him the finger.
