Cool Mushroom

Saw this mushroom in my yard today, there's two of them. I've never seen anything like it.

Future Darwin Award Winners Apply Here

You have 24 ounces of beer on hand and only 2 seconds to drink it. What to do?

Bierstick to the rescue!

I have never understood the appeal of drinking - ever. I have a little wine or a beer now and then but once I've had it I never have a desire for more. A Pina Colada tastes good as long as there is no alcohol in it. Eggnog is good as long as there is no alcohol in it. For me, alcohol ruins the taste of every drink I've ever had. "Try this, you can't even taste the alcohol." Yes, I can.

As for drinking to get drunk? I deal with drunks all the time. I deal with drunks checking into the hotel. I've dealt with fellow employees coming in not coming in after drinking the night before. Employees who you couldn't give their paychecks to until the workday was over or they would leave immediately. Either way, you wouldn't see them the next day, possibly 2 days. I've dealt with alcoholics who couldn't stop, people who would start on the road to recovery, who were doing so good and then throw it all away. One old guy I knew ended up living in a little tent behind a tourist information center waiting for his social security check to buy bus fare to Arizona (his home) so he could live and die alone in the desert, him and a picture of his ole dog. No thank you.

I am a stranger in a strange land.

Mark Levin on the Supreme Court Rape Decision

Mark goes off on Wednesday’s earlier Supreme Court decision that would not allow the death penalty for child rapists. Mark explains the way the Supreme Court is supposed to work, and this isn’t it. Five Justices have now taken over the role of the state legislature in deciding manners.

Yes they Have!

You can't fuel all of the people all of the time

Democrats have worked hard to ensure that Americans pay as much for gas as Europeans do. After a quarter-century of gas tax hikes, a ban on drilling for oil and a complete destruction of the nuclear power industry in America, I guess liberals can declare: Mission accomplished!

Government Screwels

Don’t use students as political pawns

I don't know who is the more dangerous threat to the future of our country: international terrorists or these professional educators. In 1983, the National Commission on Education said, "If a hostile foreign government had imposed this system of education on the people of the United States, we would rightly consider that an act of War."

Enough is enough! I am sick and tired of the public school system holding my child's education hostage. Teachers, administrators, the school board, and the politicians spend all their time pointing fingers at each other - and nothing is getting done!

Now I Understand

Thanks for the clarification.

Too Good To Be True?

A car that runs on water!

All right, lets all buy one. Oops, can't.

But let's say we could, and did, then what? How much water will we be using? Where are we going to get it? We have water shortages all over the globe. You probably have watering restrictions on your lawn. It sounds good but in actual practice it may cause us even more problems, like ethanol causing food prices to skyrocket.

The Ugly Truth About America's Public Schools

Johnny Can't Read, or Do Math - From Crayons to Condoms

The classroom in American public schools has become a place for children to confront all varieties of adult behaviors and depressing situations. Rather than acquire basic knowledge of history, literature, math, and science, more and more classroom time is being spent discussing feelings, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors. Instead of a place of learning, those that run our public schools seem to think that the fundamental task of education is therapy.

Read the rest at Political Pistachio

I couldn't agree more.

Would You Rather ...

Allow American oil companies to drill (and profit from) American oil fields, keeping that money in America, benefiting Americans - and we all will benefit, that money doesn't go into some black hole called big oil, it's used to start new projects, buy equipment, travel, food, taxes, you name it, it will flow through the economy like oil through the pipeline.


Continue sending our money overseas, benefiting people who don't like us very much and financing not only such luxuries as a skyscraper with revolving floors and elevators for the car so you can park near your condo in Dubai - and many other such projects - but also financing the very terrorists who are trying to destroy Western civilization.

Now, I have no problem with people wanting to build such things and enjoying the benefits of their riches but I would rather my money stayed here in the United States, improving our economy. Not to mention that Americans are far more generous with their wealth than any other country in the world. If America is doing well, everyone else does better, too. What happens in Dubai, stays in Dubai. (Sorry Vegas) I'm only picking on Dubai because they have been in the news so much lately with all kinds of huge projects.

Another thing. There is a lot of instability in the world today - that is what is driving oil prices through the roof - and the time is going to come when America will need to be able to supply it's own oil needs and do it right away in order to avert economic disaster. There will be a war, and most likely nuclear, that will cut off the oil supply. Take it to the bank, it's going to happen. It is suicide to not be able to provide for our own needs at that time. It's not going to be enough just having it in the ground, we need to have the infrastructure in place and working. The sooner we start the better.

I'm not saying we should forget about alternative energy, no, no, no. We need to continue to invent and refine new technology, but we can't do that without oil. Even the new hydrogen powered Honda could not be built without oil. And, oh, by the way, "most hydrogen fuel is derived from natural gas in a process that releases plenty of carbon dioxide." But I digress. You can't make an electric car without oil. If we cut off our oil supply or allow the price to continue to rise, we will be making it more difficult and expensive to invent the new technologies we need. There is no technology ready to replace oil at this time - none, and only nuclear power comes close for electrical generation. But, of course, we don't want to build nuclear power plants.

We need to face reality as it is, not as we wish it were.

If Republicans of color jumped ship and supported opposing party candidates because said candidates displayed Jeffersonian or Reaganesque abilities, so be it. But to do so because Obama is a mulatto-Kenyan-American-Muslim-self-identified-Christian and then attempt to veil same in a fabric of "he will help black folks" displays the poorest of judgment. That said, the best descriptive of Obama's presidential ability is ambsace.

Oh yeah, drug the customers so they buy more. What a great idea!

Obama says Republicans will use race to stoke fear

"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"

He said he was also set for Republicans to say "he's got a feisty wife," in trying to attack his wife Michelle.

I don't know a single person who cares about your race - you're as much white as black, anyway - and there is nothing wrong with a strong wife. You don't want to discuss the true reason we won't vote for you, it's your - and her - political ideals. You are as far left as they come and you have surrounded yourself with a cast of characters as shady as they come. Your color doesn't even enter into it. We wouldn't vote for John Edwards or John Kerry or Al Gore. And you are inexperienced, too.

Check out the picture on this page.

That's an Ohio state judge who 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."

But look at the picture behind him - he's in his own office - I don't believe Che Guevara even once took a moment to think about the pain he caused all the people he executed, which included at least one child.

"To send men to the firing squad, judicial proof is unnecessary...These procedures are an archaic bourgeois detail. This is a revolution! And a revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate. We must create the pedagogy of the The Wall! (El Paredón)" --Ernesto 'Che' Guevara

Way to go judge! This is a guy who should be dismissed from the bench. You are welcome to hold political views like that, but not while holding a position in our government. Especially not as a judge, as you so obviously lack judgment.

Wanna Ride?

This guy built a homemade roller coaster.

Cool! But I'll pass, thanks.

Government Health Care

State denies cancer treatment, offers suicide instead

State officials have offered a lung cancer patient the option of having the Oregon Health Plan, set up in 1994 to ration health care, pay for an assisted suicide but not for the chemotherapy prescribed by her physician.

So progressive!

They Want To Nationalize the Oil Industry

The United States of America is a Constitutional Republic, we're not a strict democracy, we're not a Socialist, Marxist, or Communist country - much to the chagrin of Democrats - and our Constitution clearly limits the powers of the federal government. Nevertheless, Democrats and, to a slightly lesser degree, Republicans have not been careful to ensure they have not overstepped those bounds. In some cases, in fact, they have leapt over them like Superman leaps over tall buildings. The welfare state comes to mind. Social Security. The socialized health care they so desperately want. I'm just scratching the surface. We let them get away with this behavior because we want something for nothing - and they want the power.

Now they want to nationalize the oil industry. When is enough, enough? It's past time to hit these people upside the head with a clue bat. Our Constitution does not allow for the nationalization of any industry. Period. Just suggesting the idea should be grounds for removal from office. Socialist/Marxist ideas do not fit within the framework of our Constitution. They are not allowed. They are verboten. And besides that they just plain don't work, unless your aim is the lowest common denominator.

So, what do we do now that we have let our politicians slide into socialism for so long that they are at this point of openly declaring that they want to nationalize the oil industry? There is no easy way back from this point. It's been said that you get the government you deserve, maybe that's it. Most Americans no longer rely on God for their daily bread or acknowledge His existence or just give Him lip service. As socialism has slipped in, it has pushed God out. So, let the government provide. The same government that has nothing to provide, save as it first takes.

I am not calling for putting God in our government, but for not putting government in place of God. Very big difference. Our tool has become our master. Time to repent.

More Canadian Justice

Dad grounds daughter, but court ungrounds her

The father had ordered the daughter, who was not identified by the report, to remain off the Internet. She didn't, chatting on websites her father had tried to block and then posting "inappropriate" pictures of herself online, using a friend's Internet portal.

As punishment, the father refused to let her go on a scheduled school trip, so the 12-year-old went to Canada's judicial system to get her way.

Court records indicated the violation of her home's Internet rules was just one in a list of instructions that she had violated. But Justice Suzanne Tessier said the punishment was just too much.

Not going on a school trip is too much punishment? What does the court think would be appropriate? A verbal reprimand, perhaps? But then, the daughter might consider that hate speech.

Obviously, the appropriate thing for the judge to do would have been to throw the case out and make the daughter do community service to pay for the courts time, in addition to not going on the school trip.

Government Schools, Gotta Love 'em

Acting solely on information from a psychic, a public elementary school alerted child welfare authorities when they believed an autistic student had been sexually abused.

"The teacher looked and me and said: 'We have to tell you something. The educational assistant who works with Victoria went to see a psychic last night, and the psychic asked the educational assistant at that particular time if she works with a little girl by the name of "V." And she said 'yes, I do.' And she said, 'well, you need to know that that child is being sexually abused by a man between the ages of 23 and 26.'"

You can't get DNA from a foot?

While the similarities to the other found feet is strong, she said there is no indication this foot is related to the other cases.

"We're certainly not discounting the possibility that this may be linked to the other recovered feet, but it's just too premature and very speculative for us to even entertain that right now,"

Fifth foot, same beach - it's not that speculative, serve the drinks already, start entertaining. Are you waiting for a handwritten note of explanation to wash up?

Is This The Change You Want?

Barack Obama aide: Why Winnie the Pooh should shape US foreign policy

Richard Danzig, who served as Navy Secretary under President Clinton and is tipped to become National Security Adviser in an Obama White House, told a major foreign policy conference in Washington that the future of US strategy in the war on terrorism should follow a lesson from the pages of Winnie the Pooh, which can be shortened to: if it is causing you too much pain, try something else.

Mr Danzig told the Centre for New American Security: "Winnie the Pooh seems to me to be a fundamental text on national security."

He spelt out how American troops, spies and anti-terrorist officials could learn key lessons by understanding the desire of terrorists to emulate superheroes like Luke Skywalker, and the lust for violence of violent football fans.

Did he really say that? Apparently, yes.

I'll say this much for him - Winnie the Pooh, that is - he's cuddly. Richard Danzig? Not so much cuddly. Or bright, either. Apparently.

The Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated

Gore has started giving a disclaimer during his lectures. Gore, and Global Investment Management, LLP (GIM), the London-based private equity firm of which Gore is the founder and Chairman, stand to benefit in untold riches if we invest in the companies he recommends in his lectures. His disclaimers are no different than those of a stock broker or insurance agent. Gore is basically saying, yes, I own stock in these companies, but you should too if you want to save the planet from certain doom. Doom-and-gloom has served Gore well.

Meteorologist Says Money Behind Warming Alarmism 'Can Corrupt Anybody'

Energy Guzzled by Al Gore’s Home in Past Year Could Power 232 U.S. Homes for a Month

"Actions speak louder than words, and Gore's actions prove that he views climate change not as a serious problem, but as a money-making opportunity," Johnson said. "Gore is exploiting the public's concern about the environment to line his pockets and enhance his profile."

Must Have Been Very Scary For Them

Police say snake eyed as weapon

Who Is Like The Beast?

Evil Words by Lenny Cacchio

"How downright treasonable to ask God for bread instead of applying to proper Communist authorities! How criminal to imply that the new People's Republic was an evil from which one needed deliverance!

Too many movers and shakers of this world, whether Communist or not, want us to look to them for our sustenance and security. In them would reside our retirement and employment security, our food, our shelter, and our clothing. To them we are to look for our protection and support.

This has been becoming clearer to me lately, especially with the sight of the Obamaniacs. How could so many people be so fooled by the beast power as described in the Bible (Revelation 13:3,4)? And then I see it on a much smaller scale around Obama or Gore, and by the whole liberal machine. This is the spirit of anti-Christ in our midst, not "the" anti-Christ, not the final or even the only realization - not at all - but the spirit, the tone, the mood is there. That's the direction it will take, but on a global stage.

My opinion, worth price charged.

Constitutional rights for Islamic enemies?

In what is being described only as a "major blow to the Bush administration," the United States Supreme Court ruled yesterday that the terrorists detained at the American detention center at Guantanamo Bay are protected under the rights and guarantees of the U.S. Constitution.

It is still impossible for me to fathom how something can be a "major blow the U.S. administration's war effort" without somehow also being a blow to the rest of us Americans.

Osama bin Laden declared war on all of America, not just the Bush administration. Bush wasn't even in office when this occurred. This ruling doesn't just hamstring the Bush administration's efforts to protect us from unrelenting terrorists – it hamstrings every administration to follow.

Are you so anti-Bush that you would see America destroyed rather than admit he may have done a thing or two right? What ever happened to America first? This makes no sense on any level, no matter how you look at it. It is insane.

I’m a social conservative. When the mullahs take over, I’ll grow my beard a little fuller, get a couple of extra wives, and keep my head down. It’s the feminists and gays who’ll have a tougher time. If, say, three of the five judges on the Massachusetts Supreme Court are Muslim, what are the chances of them approving “gay marriage”? (Source: America Alone, Mark Steyn, p. xxvii)

And Mark Levin:

While I am still reviewing the 5-4 decision written by Anthony Kennedy, apparently giving GITMO detainees access to our civilian courts, at the outset I am left to wonder whether all POWs will now have access to our civilian courts? After all, you would think lawful enemy combatants have a better claim in this regard than unlawful enemy combatants. And if POWs have access to our civilian courts, how do our courts plan to handle the thousands, if not tens of thousands of cases, that will be brought to them in future conflicts?

It has been the objective of the left-wing bar to fight aspects of this war in our courtrooms, where it knew it would have a decent chance at victory. So complete is the Court's disregard for the Constitution and even its own precedent now that anything is possible. And what was once considered inconceivable is now compelled by the Constitution, or so five justices have ruled. I fear for my country. I really do. And AP, among others, reports this story as a defeat for "the Bush administration." Really? I see it as a defeat for the nation.

UPDATE: The 5-4 GITMO decision brings to the front, yet again, John McCain's position on judges versus his own policies. McCain undoubtedly supports the 5-4 decision, yet the justices who voted against it, and argued strenuously against it, are of the kind McCain claims to want on the bench. We have seen the same issue arise respecting campaign finance. This is not to say that McCain won't nominate originalists to the bench. But if he does, he will be nominating to the Court individuals who are better adherents to the Constitution than he is.

Libs Want High Gas Prices

Obama all but said it himself.

They are helping keeping supply below demand by blocking oil companies from drilling in the United States, they want to further tax oil company profits which will do nothing but increase prices on gas, and they want this country to stop using oil and they believe that by raising the price of oil enough we will begin using alternative technology. The problem is, there is no acceptable alternative technology that is ready for prime time. They will not accept nuclear power and wind and solar energy cannot come close to replacing oil right now. What they are doing is weakening and will continue to weaken America, and this is the absolute wrong time for a weakened America.

I'm for a strong America. A strong America can develop the technology needed to use solar energy and electric cars and whatever else comes along. If anyone can, we can, but we must be free to do it. America soars on freedom. A free market economy, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, freedom to defend yourself, freedom of thought, freedom of the press, freedom of education, freedom of assembly - freedom to pursue happiness.

Hilarity Ensues

But we were getting along so well!

So it's a little like watching Lenny Bruce ramble on after they started hammering him but there is comedy gold in Mark Stein's black cloud - and he handles it much better.

Whether or not it is appropriate (or even legal) for Canadians to be "contemptuous" of the Canadian Islamic Congress's thuggish assault on ancient liberties, the fact is Mr. Awan's lawsuit has earned him far more "contempt" than anything in my article. He should be suing himself.

How true. Unfortunately, the "human rights" commissions are dead serious and that kind of steals all the comedic thunder, at least if you have to live under such a system.

"Against the argument that you cannot cry fire in a crowded theatre: Oh yes you can — you must, if in your considered view there is a fire. In that case there is a duty to cry fire."
- Julian Porter, QC, speaking at the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal on Friday

On a somewhat related note please read this blog post - good stuff.

And from a comment on this post:
Try to imagine for a minute Christians succeeding in a similar complaint suppressing all criticism of Christianity. The BC secularist troika would file it in the round file but Muslims have their ear.

Another good post:
There is much to discuss about the impact of Islam on western civilization. Islam is not a religion, its a blueprint for society. While you wish to be free from Christianity as you walk down the street, the reality is, no society exists without a religious morality at its core. There is really no such thing as a secular society.

Barack Obama's ideas for changing this country are disturbing to me, because they add up to more taxes, more government, more handouts and less individual responsibility. A lot of people who are excited about his candidacy have not looked past the word "change". I have, and all of his ideas have socialist leanings. It does not sound that way when he is delivering one of his inspiring and eloquent speeches, but that's what it is.

The Imposition Continues

Pakistan will ask the European Union countries to amend laws regarding freedom of expression in order to prevent offensive incidents such as the printing of blasphemous caricatures of Prophet Muhammad and the production of an anti-Islam film by a Dutch legislator,

Government to pastor: Renounce faith!

The Canadian government has ordered a Christian pastor to renounce his faith and never again express moral opposition to homosexuality, according to a new report.

In a decision handed down just days ago in the penalty phase of the quasi-judicial proceedings run by the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal, evangelical pastor Stephen Boisson was banned from expressing his biblical perspective of homosexuality and ordered to pay $5,000 for "damages for pain and suffering" as well as apologize to the activist who complained of being hurt.

The Simple Life?

Great commentary. Choosing to be stupid

I realized that simple living can be crystallized, distilled, condensed and reduced down to three words. Three profound, easy-to-remember words. Got a pen and paper? OK, here they are:

Make good choices.

That's it. Almost everything in life – the good, the bad and the ugly – can be reduced to the choices you make.

If only there was a way to get kids to understand this concept before it's too late. But, it's even helpful later in life to help get you out of a bad situation.

This is actually a biblical concept and goes completely against the 'anything goes' attitude of the liberal mindset. God even tells us what kind of behavior will hurt us and warns us not to make those choices. Not surprisingly, people think they know better, make a miserable mess of their lives, then either blame God or claim He can't possibly exist because of how horrible we've made our own lives. And no one lives in a vacuum. What you choose to do effects others, even if you can't see the connection. It's there. But of course, God leaves you free to make your own decisions - and everyone else, too. Crime, sickness, war - all symptoms of our collective choices.

The choices we make are more important than we give them credit for.

The turkeys took their babies out for a walk today. Boy, are they hard to get a picture of. At one point, they were right outside my bedroom window - literally 2 feet from me - but I couldn't get the shot through the window. The flash went off and the glare ruined the picture. I couldn't open the window or they would have been long gone. I'm glad I at least got this shot of them. They are so cute.

I am so sick of social engineers. They decide what's good for us and try to force it down our throats, in this case literally. They did it with ethanol and look what happened there, riots in third world countries because of high food prices. They are trying to force us off oil prematurely and you know what's happening at the gas pumps, which trickles through the economy causing inflation. These are not good people - I'm being nice.

One aviation insider I spoke with believes stealing is a systemic problem the federal agency is unable to control, particularly at problem airports like New York's LaGuardia Airport and Philadelphia International Airport.

In other words, there's little incentive for the stealing to stop. "It's the 800-pound gorilla no one wants to discuss at TSA," he says.

I didn't know it was a problem, but it's nice to finally see someone take a stand on something important.
