dumb and dumb

Hello dear chums and hi ho from the desert city of Las Vegas. What a great day wandering around, seeing/greeting old friends and talking about the latest and greatest gigabit router/switcher etc. The world will never know or appreciate the engineers who have brought us to where we can reasonably expect to talk to anyone everywhere at any time.

But I digress.

Let's go from smart people to absolutely ignorant people.

This morning Bush said something to the effect that we should start drilling for oil off the coast. So AOL ran a survey that basically said, "Do you agree?" Well 67% said YES. But about 30% said NO.

How do you account for that level of stupid?

Look dumb dumbs. We are getting it stuck up our collective gas pipes because we haven't brought on any new supplies for about 30 years. You are screwed because we have a bunch of ignorant environmental wackos who the Democrats are totally scared of.

Just say no to the bs they are passing out. Say yes to drilling. Say yes to us taking back our country. Our future.

$400,000 come a millon and one

Actually the saying is "7 come 11" but since I am in Las Vegas, I thought you might enjoy reading about how you can actually get rich in Las Vegas.

Of course it helps if you are a US Senator.

The Associated Press has an exclusive report on a series of real estate transactions by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, in which he parlayed a $400,000 investment into a $1.1 million return in just six years.

Che and Hussein and the judge

ELYRIA, Ohio (AP) — A judge in Ohio says the state's method of putting prisoners to death is unconstitutional because two of three drugs used in the lethal injection process can cause pain.
Lorain County Common Pleas Judge James Burge said Tuesday the state's lethal injection procedure doesn't provide the quick and painless death required by Ohio law.

Burge said Ohio must stop allowing a combination of drugs and focus instead on a single, anesthetic drug

This is interesting in several respects. First we have an American judge with a poster of an avowed enemy of America on his office wall.

I have to wonder if he is elected. And if so, why?

Secondly we see the shared honor of having Hussien posted on the same wall.

This tells us what a supporter believes Hussein's policies will be.

Thirdly we have this judge claiming that the current execution procedure doesn't provide the quick and painless death required by Ohio law. I have no idea if he is a doctor or chemist, and if not where he gets his information. But I digress.

If it is quick executions he is looking for, perhaps he should study Che's methods.

One morning the horrible sound of that rusty steel door swinging open startled us awake and Che's guards shoved a new prisoner into our cell. His face was bruised and smeared with blood. We could only gape. He was a boy, couldn't have been much older than 12, maybe 14.

"'What did you do?' We asked horrified. 'I tried to defend my papa,' gasped the bloodied boy. 'I tried to keep these Communist sons of b**tches form murdering him! But they sent him to the firing squad.'"

Soon Che's goons came back, the rusty steel door opened and they yanked the valiant boy out of the cell. "We all rushed to the cell's window that faced the execution pit," recalls Mr. San Martin. "We simply couldn't believe they'd murder him! Then we spotted him, strutting around the blood-drenched execution yard with his hands on his waist and barking orders � the gallant Che Guevara.

"Here Che was, finally in his element. In battle he was a sad joke, a bumbler of epic proportions [for details see "Fidel: Hollywood's Favorite Tyrant"], but up against disarmed and bloodied boys he was a snarling tiger.

"'Kneel Down!' Che barked at the boy.

"'ASSASSINS!' We screamed from our window. 'MURDERERS!! HOW CAN YOU MURDER A LITTLE BOY!'

"'I said, KNEEL DOWN!' Che barked again.

"The boy stared Che resolutely in the face. 'If you're going to kill me,' he yelled. 'you'll have to do it while I'm standing! MEN die standing!'

"COWARDS! MURDERERS! Sons of B**TCHES!" The men yelled desperately from their cells. "LEAVE HIM ALONE!" HOW CAN ...?!"

"And then we saw Che unholstering his pistol. It didn't seem possible. But Che raised his pistol, put the barrel to the back of the boy's neck and blasted. The shot almost decapitated the young boy.

There you go judge. Surely if it is good enough for Che it is good enough for you.


Good Morning Las Vegas!!

I always loved cartoons. Taz here is one of my favorites... a friend once started calling me TD because he claimed I could walk around and take a bite out of everything... Untrue of course. Besides Taz is really a sweetheart.

Bugs and Donald are also favorites.....I don't watch many cartoons anymore.. When my Grandson was younger I noted that what he was watching was somewhat PC.. I didn't protest. Learning to live with everyone hurts no one. Now if we could just get "everyone" to decide to live with "us."

Wiley Coyote was also a favorite, and still is. You have to admire his effort.

Oh, you thought this was going to be some pithy comment about Vegas? Well, think about the unreality of cartoons and then about a city in the middle of the desert with no water, no land that will grow anything and has millions of people coming yearly to enjoy losing their money.

And you think cartoons are unreal??
