Politically Incorrect Gazette - Golden Oink Awards 2007


Porcus Maximus & Hambo, while teasing Spike the Wonder Tyke, reviewed the moronic deeds of korrectnik's they have so lovingly wrote about this year. It is rumored that Hambo was on a year-end tear and Porcus had to use the cattle prod on him several times.

You ask why was Hambo throwing a Hambo Hissy Fit? One reason being because he is Hambo - that's why! Spike has told me the real reason is some ass hat from PETA sent HAMBO a picture of a beached whale, but it was really a naked picture of Rosie - saggy SP's and all!

With Hambo calmed down and that horrible picture cleared from his mind, he & Porcus were able to come up with some great year end prose for the 2007 Golden Oink Awards.....

From PIG --

It’s that silly season again when lazy "alleged" journalists around the globe start taking the easy way out when facing a looming deadline by running and end of the year awards list up the flagpole. Is PIG going to stoop that low to meet our Top Story Deadline on a holiday weekend? You better damn believe it, Sparky.

Why would you expect us to pass up a chance to salute the good guys and administer some PIGish bitch-slaps on the richly deserving. We scoured our own archives, solicited suggestions from you our devoted PIGsters, sampled the lunacy that passes for journalism in the 21st century, then searched low and lower for those qualified to be honored or pummeled by one of PIG's Golden Oinks of the Year.

PIG's Golden Oinks Selection Committee singles out the following individuals and/or groups for special PIG attention for their amazing, amusing, and or inspiring antics during 2007.

Golden Oinks of the Year : December 28, 2007

Stand-Up Guys and Gals
  • Spirit of America Award: This year, we’re pleased to salute Joey Vento, a City of Brotherly Love capitalist who incurred Korrectnik wrath when he posted a sign outside his ‘Geno’s Steaks’ eatery that boldly states: "This is America. When ordering, speak English."

  • Capitalist of the Year: Jon Basso the genius behind the Tempe Arizona's legendary Heart Attack Grill is our first repeat winner. His stellar eatery continues to spit in the eye of caterwauling womyn and transfat phobic twerps, the best reasons we know for honoring him, again.

  • Public Bitch-Slapping of the Year: Spain’s King Juan Carlos wrapped this one up when he snapped after taking as much of Hugo "Skipper" Chavez’s bloviating as he could. The King earned a rousing ovation during an Ibero-American summit when, he aimed an accusing finger at Skipper Chavez and shouted this finalist for putdown of the year, "Why don’t you just shut up?"
Politics
  • Belief System of the Year: Thanks to the scientific illiteracy of a gullible public, Global Warming has matriculated from a steaming junk science load into the foremost brand of supernaturalism on the planet. Energized by Messiah Al's hypnotic trance inducing droning, Gore's Global Warming disciples rival Mecca Maniacs when it comes to mindless, lunatic fringe, devotion.

  • Excuse of the Year: This one goes to Larry Craig who sold Idaho chad punchers on a lame-ass excuse - "When I'm sitting in a public toilet stall, I have a very wide stance". Larry got bonus points for his equally unconvincing "I'm not gay" tantrum.

  • Madeline Albright Award: Given to the clueless pinhead who made the most grotesque spectacle of themselves kissing a Commie Dictator's butt, this goes to Sean Penn for his over-the-top smooching of Hugo Chavez's bloated buns. Danny "America Hating Brother" Glover ran a very close second. Condi Rice's obeisance to the axis of evil at the end of the year made her a serious contender, but she started her heroic run too late to close the gap.
This is just a sample of the 2007 Golden Oink Awards. To read the whole list of awards go visit the guys at Politically Incorrect Gazette. As for 2008, Porcus Maximus has issued a communique through Barbie Q. Ribs (WOW!), a PIG operative, to let me know Operation Oink will continue!

Is McCain the GOP Man?

The Iowa and New Hampshire primary for presidential candidates is the kick off for the '08 election. The democrats front runner, Hildebeast at 42%, has consistently held a double digit lead over her closest opponent - Barack Osama at 23% since the beginning of November. Poll wise Edwards (16%) is in the back room getting another hair cut.

It is all but guaranteed that Hilldebag will be the democrat nominee. The republican nominee will be ???

It is nowhere near as cut and dry on the GOP side. The momentum of each candidates has swirled wildly as a blast from a lake effect snowstorm blowing off Lake Erie. The daily Rasmussen poll has them buried together as if in a snow drift....
  • Giuliani - 15%
  • Huckabee - 16%

  • Thompson - 12%

  • Romney - 16%

  • McCain - 17%

As candidates - one of these guys must rise to the top! The first two rounds of primaries in Iowa and New Hampshire should give us a better picture. I am starting to hope it is John McCain.

As we can see the numbers reflect no candidate "bowls over" any of the conservative or republican voters.....

"One of the more amazing things about the Republican race this year is that it has grown closer and closer over time," notes Rasmussen. "In a poll with a four-percentage point margin of error, the fact that five candidates are within five points means there is absolutely no national frontrunner. Adding to the uncertainty is the fact that 13 percent of likely primary voters remain undecided."

When looking at our GOP candidates we must look to see who we believe can lead our nation during the dangerous times we face. One that is able to adapt with the changing times, but not be swayed by public opinion and poll numbers. We need a leader that is receptive and strong not one that is intimidating, aloof, or shows signs of being indecisive.

When you take the above and put it to our candidates - the picture can look even more disturbing, or maybe, just maybe, that one guy we need - is starting to appear in your mind. We must be aware our candidate not only needs to win the primary - but the general election in November '08. A candidate winning the primary and not the general election means - we lose and our country loses!

Considering the issues here at home and the growing troubles abroad our candidate must be able to hit the ground running. Meant as no slight to any of our candidates (except Romney & Guido) the picture is starting to become clear for me, and hopefully for the voters of Iowa & New Hampshire.

The candidate we need, the candidate that HAS the experience and CAN win the general election is - John McCain!

Gaza Pilgrims Stranded - Refused entry by Egypt

A whole bunch (a lot) of Palestinian pilgrims returning from Mecca are stranded on two ferries in the Red Sea port of Nuweiba after being refused entry by Egypt on their return to Gaza.

Wanting to return home through Egypt's Rafah Crossing, the only entry not through Israel, the pilgrims were denied entry. Originally Egypt had no problem with the pilgrims using this crossing, but after talks with Israel Defense Minister Ehud Barak - they changed their mind.

One of the reasons is there is reported to be several high ranking members of the militant group Hamas on the ferries. While some of the pilgrims were doing the good muslim thing of making a trip to Mecca, Hamas extremists used this time out of the country, with help from the Saudi's, as a fund raising opportunity....

Reposted from DEBKAfile --

Egypt transfers to El Arish detention center more than 3,000 Palestinians taken off two Red Sea ferries, including 1,000 Hamas operatives.

The number of passengers proved greater than estimated when they disembarked at Nuweiba, on the Sinai shore of the Gulf of Aqaba Sunday, 30 Dec. After being herded together they were bussed to a detention center in the northern Sinai town of El Arish.

The Hamas group, carrying app. $150 million collected during the Mecca hajj, had held the two Aqaba-Nuweiba ferries hostage under threaten to scuttle them. They
rejected Egypt’s demand to first sign undertakings to enter Gaza through one of the crossings controlled by Israel and submit to searches.

A 62-year old Palestinian female passenger, Shafiqa Bahisi, died under the strain. Saturday, as Egypt stood firm, Hamas gathered tens of thousands of supporters from around the Gaza Strip to ram the Rafah gateway to Egyptian Sinai, while Cairo beefed up its security units at the terminal.

According to DEBKAfile’s military sources, Hamas leaders tried to smuggle suitcases packed with Jordanian and Egyptian currency into Gaza from the end of the Mecca pilgrimage last Friday.

If delivered, the money is enough to keep Hamas’ military operations going for another three to four months, including missile and other attacks. Our intelligence sources report that several Hamas operatives aboard the ferries are high on Israel’s wanted terrorist list.

They collected around $50 m from Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in a secret rendezvous at a Saudi shrine on Wed. Dec. 19; the rest from Hamas’ parent, the Muslim Brotherhood, which was handed over under cover of the pilgrimage. In September, Brotherhood branches worldwide launched a secret fundraising drive under the slogan: “Contribute to save Hamas rule in Gaza.”

Saudi authorities permitted the cash to be brought into the kingdom and handed to Hamas leaders. Egypt allowed Hamas leaders to leave the Gaza Strip for the hajj but prevented them from returning with their war chest. This resolve was the outcome of Mubarak’s talks with visiting Israeli defense minister Ehud Barak last week and their decision to join forces to combat the war activities mounted from Gaza by Hamas and its allies.

Police Taser Professional Drunk for Biting Himself

I had to read this twice..... then once more, and then once again!

From My Fox Cleveland --
An Eastlake resident has 12 DUI convictions. On 49-year-old Wayne Wykof's 13th DUI arrest, he doesn’t cooperate with police, who taser him when he allegedly refuses to stop biting himself. Wykof also allegedly spit in an officer's face when being placed in a cell and could face a felony charge of harassment with a bodily substance. Click here to watch video at MyFOXCleveland.com.
I've heard of refusing the breathalyzer.... but biting yourself!?!

Bin Laden Threatens Sunni's in Iraq

Our friendly Middle East terrorist, Osama Bin Laden, has sent out a Christmas message. The tape is not verified, but authorities indicated Bin Laden has never released a phony tape so there is no reason to doubt the authenticity of this taped message.

Ol' Bin has his turban spinning this time because Iraqi citizens are starting to stand up against his jihadakazes pals from Al-Qaeda in Iraq. The muslim mountain man continues on with his usual railing against the United States, talks about expanding Al-Qaeda and in a rare move singles out & mentions Israel by name....
"We intend to liberate Palestine, the whole of Palestine from the (Jordan) river to the sea," he said, threatening "blood for blood, destruction for destruction."

"We will not recognize even one inch for Jews in the land of Palestine as other Muslim leaders have," bin Laden said.

The peacekeepers dispatched to Lebanon after the war were there to "protect the Jews", said bin Laden....

Bin Laden has his panties in a bunch and is pissed that the U.S wants to form a unity government of Shiite, Sunnis & Kurds,- claiming we want this so we can steal their oil.

Noting the Al-Qaeda bombing death of, Abdul-Sattar Abu Risha, the former leader of the Anbar Awakening Council, you can tell Bin Laden is not thrilled spitless about the success of the recent creation of Awakening Councils. The Sunni & Shiite Awakening Councils are successfully decreasing the violence in Iraq.

Everyday Iraqi's (Sunni & Shiite) are rejecting Bin Laden's quest for an Islamic state. Bin Laden is calling on Sunni's in Iraq to rise up against anybody helping these groups and to swear their loyalty to Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, his Al-Qaeda counterpart in Iraq --
"The most evil of the traitors are those who trade away their religion for the sake of their mortal life," bin Laden said.

"Our duty is to foil these dangerous schemes, which try to prevent the establishment of an Islamic state in Iraq, which would be a wall of resistance against American schemes to divide Iraq," he said.

"Failure to give allegiance to the emir after he has been endorsed leads to great evils," bin Laden warned. "Emir Abu Omar would rather have his neck severed than betray the Muslims ... Emir Abu Omar and his brothers are not one of those who accept compromise or meeting the enemy halfway."
More....

Since Bin-Laden says Abu Omar would rather have his head severed, would that be considered a violation of the Geneva Convention if we facilitated it for him?

Steaming Load of the Year Award 2007

From Politically Incorrect Gazette --

Steaming Load of the Year 2007


Steaming Load of the Year 2007: Ayatollah Phil Burress

[Phil was a slam dunk since, as you can see from the end of the following rant, he's the reeking plate of turds that 'inspired' this award. That's why I promoted him from Girlieman of the Week to Steaming Load of the Year.]

Phil Burress is a man with a plan and, when he’s finished, the Buckeye State will be a Cross Cult theocracy under his direct control. Under Ayatollah Phil, Ohio will be indistinguishable from Afghanistan under the Taliban, Iran under Phil’s hero, Ayatollah Khomeini, or the Sandbox with its religious gestapo.

‘... Mr. Burress plans to take his grass-roots movement in Ohio to a new level, using a computer database of 1.5 million voters to build a network of Christian conservative officials, candidates and political advocates.

He envisions holding town-hall-style meetings early next year in Ohio's 88 counties to identify issues, recruit organizers and train volunteers. With a cadre of 15 to 20 leaders in each county, he says he believes religious conservatives can be running school boards, town councils and county prosecutors' offices across the state within a few years.

"I'm building an army," Mr. Burress said. "We can't just let people go back to the pews and go to sleep."...’ (New York Times, 11/26/04)

Phil Burress is that most dangerous kind of despot, a man who is so terrified of his own cravings - he’s a self-confessed porn addict - that he’s compelled to remove any/all temptation, through Nanny State coercion. Phil is such a such a gutless pile of steaming turds that he has his wife watch the porn that ‘offends’ him. He makes her write summaries of the porn action for the Ayatollah to use when soliciting more Nanny State assaults on inalienable individual liberty.

Funded by anonymous ‘deep pockets’, Ayatollah Phil rammed through Ohio’s defense of marriage initiative that thrilled GLAAD BAAGs spitless. Refusing to rest on his laurels, Ayatollah Phil aimed his Cross Cult Jihadikazes at Ohio’s Elected Tormentors and terrified them into passing SB 16 a bold frontal assault on booty parlor capitalists.

In its original form, the bill would force booty parlors to shut down at midnight. During operating hours, the patrons and dancers would be banned from touching. It also imposed a 6 foot no fly zone - a bubble - around the dancers that persisted, even AFTER the dancer changed into her street clothes.

It appears that the Buckeye State’s Elected Tormentors trimmed off some of the most Draconian elements of Ayatollah Phil’s booty parlor restrictions, but left enough in place to cripple booty parlor capitalists. The 6 foot bubble is MIA in the version posted on the state’s site. The midnight closing is still there, but it allows booty parlors with a liquor license to stay open until closing time, as long as they don’t have any ‘nude’ dancing after midnight.

For being a cringing coward who can’t control his own impulses...for using the Nanny State’s monopoly on the use of force to impose his narrow, Draconian delusions of morality on Ohio’s sovereign individuals...for being a goose-stepping pile of Morality Nazi shit...for anointing himself the theocratic dictator of Ohio, Ayatollah Phil Burress is the Politically Incorrect Gazette’s Girlieman of the Week...Steaming Load of the Year

Parting shot: I apologize to all those Girliemen who are, quite rightly, outraged that I impugn their hard-won status by lumping a liberty-hating, theocratic son-of-a-bitch like Phil Burress in with them. Until PIG creates a “Steaming Turd of the Week” award, you’ll just have to suck it up and get over it.

Congratulations, Phil, you just got promoted into the big leagues..

Girlieman of the Year 2007


From Politically Incorrect Gazette --


Girlieman of the Year 2007

Date Awarded: December 28, 2007

After looking through our Girliemen of the Week winners for 2007, I realized how hard it is to pick the most infamous panty-punk out of this collection of gutless wonders.

San Francisco cabbie, Michael Byrne (July 27th), made the short list of finalists when he caterwauled that his assigned cabbie medallion - that devilish numerology, 666 - gave him an incurable boo-boo.

James Gambino (May 18th) made the list by whining and carrying on that the Blue Parrot Restaurant’s (Louisville, Colorado) legendary Wopburger was an egregious insult to his Italian heritage.

Dingy Harry Reid (October 19th) was on the list for a variety of reasons, the most noteworthy of which was getting a world-class punking at Rush Limbaugh’s hands.

Senator Larry Craig (August 31st) was a contender for his inability to take the blame for his wide-stance actions, and take his ‘medicine’ like a man.

Bob Fish (September 21), the quivering tower of jello who is chief executive for an up and coming coffee wrangling company with 77 franchises around the USA, was near the top of the short list. Although nobody lodged a complain about the firm's name, Bob achieved that lofty status when he changed the name of his company from ‘Beaners Coffee’ to ‘Biggby Coffee’, because 'Beaners Coffee' might offend some hypersensitive Sombrero Stomper.

After giving it more thought than it deserves, I chose the following alleged man from the list, because his complaint was - still is - so utterly asinine, on every possible level:

Girlieman of the Year: Michael McDermott

Winning whine: "‘Dykes on Bikes’ gives me a boo-boo."

According to a professional scumbag, a Mexifornia shyster named Michael McDermott, he gets a painful boo-boo every time he hears the name of a legendary all gal biker gang from the Blight on the Bay. In fact, he is so distressed by the name "Dykes on Bikes" that he perpetrated a two year long legal fight to get the U.S. Patent and Trademark office to change its mind about granting the motorcycle club exclusive rights to the name "Dykes on Bikes". When this federal cabal told Mikey to buzz off, Mikey took the matter to federal court.


This week, a U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit slapped Mikey down, by telling him that ‘men have no legal base for being offended’ by the name "Dykes on Bikes". Thanks to that decision, Mikey will be forced to man up during the festivities he calls "the Annual Illegal San Francisco Dyke Hate Riot". He’ll need to man up and learn to live with a name that he considers "disparaging to men and is scandalous and immoral". If, as Mikey claims, ‘he and all men are subjected to criminal attacks and civil rights violations during the march’, maybe he should stop going to the damn thing. Finally, he needs to grow a pair and get over his obsession that the word "dyke" is infused with a "deep obsessive hatred of men and the male gender".

Get over yourself, Mikey. The fact that this group calls themselves "Dykes on Bikes" has nothing, whatsoever to do with you. Look on the bright side, your whining about "Dykes on Bikes" made you the runaway winner of our Girlieman of the Week sweepstakes. As thrilling as that is, it gets better, Mikey. If you add this Girlieman of the Week (and Girlieman of the Year) award to your resume, "Dykes on Bikes" might let you march IN the parade, next year.

[If, like King, you're wondering why Ayatollah Phil Burress didn't make the list of contenders, wonder no more. Ayatollah Phil was kicked up several notches. You'll find him enshrined where he really belongs, as our first, Steaming Load of the Year.]

Bhutto, Pakistan, Nukes & Terrorists


With the country of Pakistan in complete turmoil following the assassination of former Prime Minister Benizir Bhutto, officials are releasing more information on her death.

Pakistani officials are now claiming that Bhutto actually died from her head striking the sunroof and not from the gunshots or explosion that followed.

Many in the country are blaming current Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf for Bhutto's death. Bhutto had long complained about the lack of security provided by the government. Pakistani officials are claiming the Al-Qaeda in Pakistan and the Taliban are behind the death - and they might be telling the truth.

Pakistani Intelligence Officials state they have intercepted conversations of the man responsible for facilitating Bhutto's death, Baitullah Mehsud, a ruthless tribal warlord from South Waziristan in northern Pakistan.

In the released transcripts, Mehsud is heard passing on congratulations to his followers for the killing....

"It was a tremendous effort. They were really brave boys who killed her," Mehsud said, according to the transcript.

Mehsud is the leader of Lashkar i Jhangvi (LJ) and are known affiliates of Al-Qaeda in Pakistan and the Taliban. They are also the group responsible for the kidnap and murder of U.S. journalist Danny Pearl and believed to be behind the assassination attempt on Bhutto's life when she returned home from self-imposed exile earlier this year.

Mehsud had made it well known that he would have Bhutto killed if she returned home. On her return, for making "three major offenses against Islamists," Mehsud issued his orders to have Bhutto killed....

First, she supported the Pakistani military attack on Lal Masjid (the Red Mosque) in Islamabad on July 10, 2007—Lal Masjid was considered a hotbed of Islamist radicalism; one hundred and sixty-four Pakistani special-forces commandos stormed the mosque and madrassah, killing at least 20 and injuring over 100.

Second, Bhutto has made it clear that if she takes power in Pakistan, she will allow American forces to search for Osama bin Laden inside Pakistan's borders.

Third, she has said that if elected, she would allow the International Atomic Energy Agency to question A. Q. Khan.

The first reason may be familiar for some, the second cookie cutter reason is just the usual excuse given for the terrorists to kill anyone. The third reason - A. Q. Khan - is one we need to be VERY concerned about!

Dr. Abdul Qadeer Kahn, aka "Father of the Pakistani Bomb," can be considered the single most dangerous threat to civilization today!

What gives credence to the governments' story is that Kahn has a research facility in Rawalpindi, the same city which Bhutto was assassinated. Bhutto's death may have very well placed us one step closer to the realization of our greatest fear - nukes in the hands of terrorists!

The Indian born Kahn, a muslim, immigrated to Pakistan as a child in 1947 after the partitioning of India & Pakistan. An award winning & leading nuclear scientist, Kahn is/was once considered a hero by many in Pakistan. Fearing the nuclear threat from their enemy India, he was looked upon by many as a savior for providing Pakistan with nuclear technology and weapons.

Kahn started out in 1972 stealing nuclear secrets while working for a company in the Netherlands, returned to Pakistan with this stolen technology in 1976, confirmed Pakistan had nukes in 1987, became a home town hero, then confirmed rogue muslim extremist in 2001.

Kahn started his work under Benizir Bhutto's father, Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, who once helped shield his espionage.....

In January 1976, on (according to Khan) the invitation of Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, he suddenly left Europe with his family before his espionage was detected.

A small centrifuge pilot facility was initially set up at Sihala, several kilometers southeast of Islamabad. Friction quickly developed and in July 1976 Bhutto gave Khan autonomous control of the uranium enrichment project, reporting directly to the Prime Minister's office, an arrangement that has continued since.

This was not the case during Benizir Bhutto's two terms as prime minister, there was no love lost between the two; Bhutto was regularly denied any information and access to Kahn's research laboratory while he was working for the government. Kahn has confirmed working with the Chinese government & getting funding from Saudi Arabia during his years in acquiring nuclear capabilities for Pakistan.

Over the years of creating his own black market "Wal-Mart for Nukes," Kahn also admitted he has sold nuclear technology and helped the countries of North Korea, Iran, Iraq, Syria & Libya with their quest for nuclear weapons.

Our entrepreneurial muslim nuke nut has established ties & worked with Islamic militant groups in Kashmir, the Taliban, Osama Bin Laden & Al-Qaeda since at least 1996. This information was well known and his activities were allowed to flourish during the Bill Clinton 'cigar years' in office. For fear of exposing Saudi ties into Kahn's activities of funding the Taliban & Al-Qaeda, these investigations were hindered by the Clinton administration and came to a screeching halt during the Bush years.

So today we are left to mourn Bhutto's death from these extremists and watch any hope of a stable Pakistan blown away. Any notion that Mehsud and the terrorists did not have Bhutto killed to protect Kahn and their desire for nukes can be dispelled in Khan's first answer of an interview in which he pledges his allegiance to radical Islam.

Beefin' in Bethlehem

Here's something I bet most people did not know..... it is routine for the priest running the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem to have scuffles during their yearly Christmas clean up of the church.

This year was no different!

From Breitbart --

Seven people were injured on Thursday when Greek Orthodox and Armenian priests came to blows in a dispute over how to clean the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem.

Following the Christmas celebrations, Greek Orthodox priests set up ladders to clean the walls and ceilings of their part of the church, which is built over the site where Jesus Christ is believed to have been born.

But the ladders encroached on space controlled by Armenian priests, according to photographers who said angry words ensued and blows quickly followed.

For a quarter of an hour bearded and robed priests laid into each other with fists, brooms and iron rods while the photographers who had come to take pictures of the annual cleaning ceremony recorded the whole event. More.... (Here is the video)


Priests fighting in church?!? Oh boy these guys are going to be in BIG trouble! I wonder who they will give their confession too.

Even though these priests are acting like little children it does go to show the difference between Christianity and Islam.

Had this "offense" been at a mosque or between muslims - we would be reading about how thousands of people took to the streets, burning tires, cars and killing innocent people.

Of course to make any turban spinning muslim story complete you need explosions! So there would have to be a suicide bomber, an explosive laden car that killed more innocent people and bombing of each other mosques.

And to top everything off guess who broke up the fight? Palestinian policemen!

Cuyahoga County Bored of Elections - Day Late and $30 Million Short(er)

Brunnehilda will definitely get a happy face sticker from the democrats for this one!

In the latest news from the Cuyahoga County Bored of Elections we learn the forced switch to optical scanners will take longer to count our votes. Will this longer time assure an accurate, untampered with vote count? HELL NO!

In my opinion, I would say the new scanners will allow for more possibilities of voter fraud and vote tampering. Causing me to eat 4 bottles of aspirin and pondering brain surgery - I find myself agreeing with the ACLU!

At a $30 million dollar price tag & hell bent on delivering Ohio to the dems in the '08 presidential election, Brunnehilda has assured Cuyahoga County will be no problem!

1-2-3.... Will a vote count from me?

4-5-6.... Hey, I heard these optical scanners can do tricks!

7-8-9.... Don't worry, Brunnehilda say's they'll do fine!
(maybe just a little illegal)


From the PD --
The county expects to count about 400,000 paper ballots the day of the primary with about 15 optical scanners. Board of Elections Director Jane Platten said the process won't be finished until the morning of March 5 at the earliest.

Voting rights activists dislike the system because voters are not alerted when they fill out a ballot incorrectly. The county's old touch-screen system notified voters before they cast their ballot.

ACLU lawyer Carrie Davis said the new system violates a state law that prohibits counties from buying machines that don't alert voters who invalidate their ballots by selecting too many candidates in a race.
More....

Scrapping our current voting system = $21 million

New system = $9 million

No bid contract for illegal scanners = Business as usual in Cuyahoga County!

Russia sells Iran more Missiles

In his own little KGB type way, Russian President Vladmir Putin is constantly stirring the pot trying to undermine U.S. efforts abroad. Putin is already playing games with the U.S. proposed sanctions against Iran because of their desire to obtain nuclear weapons. Now he is giving the pariah state more weapons to threaten their neighbors with.

With the U.S. already upset with Russia for selling Iran the 29 TOR-M1 air defense missile systems earlier this year, in typical Russian fashion, Putin ignores the concerns that these weapons may be used against our troops in Iraq.

Russia will make good on their 2004 agreement to sell their S-300 surface-to-air to Iran. Already arming Syria with these mobile weapons, Russia is greatly increasing the military capabilities of Iran with the transfer of what is considered one of the top SAM's on the market....

The S-300 (NATO codename: SA-10 Grumble) family of surface-to-air missiles (SAM) developed by Russian Almaz Central Design Bureau is regarded as one of the most effective all-altitude regional air defence system in the world.

From Arab News --

Iran announced yesterday it is to receive S-300 air missile defense systems from Russia, a move that risks angering the United States, which has been critical of past arms sales to Tehran.

“The S-300 system will be delivered to Iran within the framework of a contract agreed in the past,” Iranian Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammad Najjar was quoted as saying by state radio....

“In line with the contract signed several years ago, Russia will deliver to Iran several dozen 3RS S-300PMU1 anti-aircraft systems,” the source said. Interfax said the deliveries would begin next year. Russia, a veto-wielding permanent UN Security Council member, has important economic interests in Tehran. More....

And Russia is upset we want to place our missile defense technology in European & Middle East countries - Go Figure!

Bhutto Killed in Blast

Benazir Bhutto was killed yesterday afternoon from a combination of a gunshot to the neck and an explosion set off by a suicide bomber.

Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, facing reelection and with most of the country wanting his head on a platter, denied any involvement claiming it was the work of terrorists. No terrorist group has yet to take credit for the attack....

From Arab News --

Benazir, 54, had just addressed an election rally at Liaquat Bagh (Garden) when a bomber shot her in the neck and blew himself up, killing at least 20 people and injuring scores of others. Hours later riots erupted across the country.

State media and Benazir’s Pakistan People’s Party confirmed her death in hospital. “The man first fired at Benazir’s vehicle. Then he blew himself up,” said police officer Mohammad Shahid.

“She was waving to the crowd from the sunroof of her car and then there was a blast,” Benazir’s spokesman Farhatullah Babar told state television. He added that doctors declared her dead at 5:25 p.m.

Very Funny Picture - You name the title

From Arab News --


I need help! I posted this picture because it is damn funny, but I could not figure out a title for the post. Any suggestions?

I will rename the post using the best submission.

The "Not So Extreme" Extremists

We have all heard about Al-Qaeda, Al-Qaeda in Iraq, The 1920 Revolution Brigade and the Mahdi Army, when it comes to the leading terrorist groups namely in Iraq.

It seems there has been another group lurking in the shadows and receiving much less attention - The Islamic Front for Iraqi Resistance (JAMI). It is alleged that this Islamic group (JAMI), founded in 2004, is a splinter group from the "Society of the Muslim Brothers" or "The Brotherhood" - which is where Osama Bin Laden got his start.

JAMI considers themselves the protectors of Iraq and Iraqi citizens. The groups sworn enemy is - guess who? How did you guess? Yep, the United States and our troops. JAMI claims they help Iraqi citizens and keep unsecured towns free of terror from outside extremists groups.

Ooops, I almost forgot - they also say in this 2004 press release & video - they protect Iraqi's from U.S. and any foreign troops or as they like to call us, invaders. JAMI is not to be confused with, nor associated with, the Shiite & Sunni "Awakening Councils" I have posted on.

Responsible for many attacks on US troops, this Sunni-based group feels they are not as extreme as the real mean terror groups listed above. I bet the victims from one of their IED's would dispute that claim!

The terrorist loving propaganda outlet, Al-Jazeera, has recently written a couple articles promoting the work of these sharia loving jihadakazes. Al-Jazeera describes this group as - Deeply nationalistic with a slight Islamic leaning, it appeals more to Iraqis than extreme groups involved in global jihad such as al-Qaeda.

I guess being a nice terrorist means you arm yourself to the gills so you can wage guerilla warfare against the people protecting your country!?! Likening the obtaining of weapons in Iraq to a "kid in a candy store," these extremists are stockpiling new weapons, modifying their outdated weapons and laying low for another day - even if it takes forever.....

"We have experts who are in charge of researching and developing new methods continuously," one of the men says. "We need to find new ways all the time, in case we run out of chemicals."

"One shot, one soldier killed is the rule," says the instructor, a former army officer. The fighters have every intention of continuing their operations and in an ever more sophisticated manner.

"Our researchers are developing remote-controlled explosive devices," one man says. "Soon we will be able to wage a battle with as little as two fighters - we will minimise our losses." More....

Judicial Watch Announces List of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” for 2007

From Judicial Watch --

Washington, DC –Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today released its 2007 list of Washington’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians.” The list, in alphabetical order, includes:
  1. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY): In addition to her long and sordid ethics record, Senator Hillary Clinton took a lot of heat in 2007 – and rightly so – for blocking the release her official White House records. Many suspect these records contain a treasure trove of information related to her role in a number of serious Clinton-era scandals. Moreover, in March 2007, Judicial Watch filed an ethics complaint against Senator Clinton for filing false financial disclosure forms with the U.S. Senate (again). And Hillary’s top campaign contributor, Norman Hsu, was exposed as a felon and a fugitive from justice in 2007. Hsu pleaded guilt to one count of grand theft for defrauding investors as part of a multi-million dollar Ponzi scheme.

    2. Rep. John Conyers (D-MI): Conyers reportedly repeatedly violated the law and House ethics rules, forcing his staff to serve as his personal servants, babysitters, valets and campaign workers while on the government payroll. While the House Ethics Committee investigated these allegations in 2006, and substantiated a number of the accusations against Conyers, the committee blamed the staff and required additional administrative record-keeping and employee training. Judicial Watch obtained documentation in 2007 from a former Conyers staffer that sheds new light on the activities and conduct on the part of the Michigan congressman, which appear to be at a minimum inappropriate and likely unlawful. Judicial Watch called on the Attorney General in 2007 to investigate the matter.

    3. Senator Larry Craig (R-ID): In one of the most shocking scandals of 2007, Senator Craig was caught by police attempting to solicit sex in a Minneapolis International Airport men’s bathroom during the summer. Senator Craig reportedly “sent signals” to a police officer in an adjacent stall that he wanted to engage in sexual activity. When the police officer showed Craig his police identification under the bathroom stall divider and pointed toward the exit, the senator reportedly exclaimed 'No!'” When asked to produce identification, Craig presented police his U.S. Senate business card and said, “What do you think of that?” The power play didn’t work. Craig was arrested, charged and entered a guilty plea. Despite enormous pressure from his Republican colleagues to resign from the Senate, Craig refused.

    4. Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA): As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee's subcommittee on military construction, Feinstein reviewed military construction government contracts, some of which were ultimately awarded to URS Corporation and Perini, companies then owned by Feinstein's husband, Richard Blum. While the Pentagon ultimately awards military contracts, there is a reason for the review process. The Senate's subcommittee on Military Construction's approval carries weight. Sen. Feinstein, therefore, likely had influence over the decision making process. Senator Feinstein also attempted to undermine ethics reform in 2007, arguing in favor of a perk that allows members of Congress to book multiple airline flights and then cancel them without financial penalty. Judicial Watch’s investigation into this matter is ongoing.

    5. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R-NY): Giuliani came under fire in late 2007 after it was discovered the former New York mayor’s office “billed obscure city agencies for tens of thousands of dollars in security expenses amassed during the time when he was beginning an extramarital relationship with future wife Judith Nathan in the Hamptons…” ABC News also reported that Giuliani provided Nathan with a police vehicle and a city driver at taxpayer expense. All of this news came on the heels of the federal indictment on corruption charges of Giuliani’s former Police Chief and business partner Bernard Kerik, who pleaded guilty in 2006 to accepting a $165,000 bribe in the form of renovations to his Bronx apartment from a construction company attempting to land city contracts.

    6. Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR): Governor Huckabee enjoyed a meteoric rise in the polls in December 2007, which prompted a more thorough review of his ethics record. According to The Associated Press: “[Huckabee’s] career has also been colored by 14 ethics complaints and a volley of questions about his integrity, ranging from his management of campaign cash to his use of a nonprofit organization to subsidize his income to his destruction of state computer files on his way out of the governor’s office.” And what was Governor Huckabee’s response to these ethics allegations? Rather than cooperating with investigators, Huckabee sued the state ethics commission twice and attempted to shut the ethics process down.

    7. I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby: Libby, former Chief of Staff to Vice President Dick Cheney, was sentenced to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000 for lying and obstructing the Valerie Plame CIA leak investigation. Libby was found guilty of four felonies -- two counts of perjury, one count of making false statements to the FBI and one count of obstructing justice – all serious crimes. Unfortunately, Libby was largely let off the hook. In an appalling lack of judgment, President Bush issued “Executive Clemency” to Libby and commuted the sentence.

    8. Senator Barack Obama (D-IL): A “Dishonorable Mention” last year, Senator Obama moves onto the “ten most wanted” list in 2007. In 2006, it was discovered that Obama was involved in a suspicious real estate deal with an indicted political fundraiser, Antoin “Tony” Rezko. In 2007, more reports surfaced of deeper and suspicious business and political connections It was reported that just two months after he joined the Senate, Obama purchased $50,000 worth of stock in speculative companies whose major investors were his biggest campaign contributors. One of the companies was a biotech concern that benefited from legislation Obama pushed just two weeks after the senator purchased $5,000 of the company’s shares. Obama was also nabbed conducting campaign business in his Senate office, a violation of federal law.

    9. Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA): House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who promised a new era of ethics enforcement in the House of Representatives, snuck a $25 million gift to her husband, Paul Pelosi, in a $15 billion Water Resources Development Act recently passed by Congress. The pet project involved renovating ports in Speaker Pelosi's home base of San Francisco. Pelosi just happens to own apartment buildings near the areas targeted for improvement, and will almost certainly experience a significant boost in property value as a result of Pelosi's earmark. Earlier in the year, Pelosi found herself in hot water for demanding access to a luxury Air Force jet to ferry the Speaker and her entourage back and forth from San Francisco non-stop, in unprecedented request which was wisely rejected by the Pentagon. And under Pelosi’s leadership, the House ethics process remains essentially shut down – which protects members in both parties from accountability.

    10. Senator Harry Reid (D-NV): Over the last few years, Reid has been embroiled in a series of scandals that cast serious doubt on his credibility as a self-professed champion of government ethics, and 2007 was no different. According to The Los Angeles Times, over the last four years, Reid has used his influence in Washington to help a developer, Havey Whittemore, clear obstacles for a profitable real estate deal. As the project advanced, the Times reported, “Reid received tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from Whittemore.” Whittemore also hired one of Reid’s sons (Leif) as his personal lawyer and then promptly handed the junior Reid the responsibility of negotiating the real estate deal with federal officials. Leif Reid even called his father’s office to talk about how to obtain the proper EPA permits, a clear conflict of interest.

Sadr wants to be an Ayatollah

Iraqi's Shiite Madman, Muqtada al-Sadr, is going back to school. Sadr wants to increase his power hold over fellow jihadakazes of the Al-Mahdi Army by becoming an Ayatollah.....

From Iraq Updates --

The bad boy of Iraqi politics is going back to school. Muqtada al-Sadr, leader of Iraq's largest Shiite militia, is studying to become an ayatollah. It might seem like a minor development within Iraq's notoriously insular Shiite politics, especially against the backdrop of daily bloodshed. But Sadr's decision has enormous implications for Iraqis and the United States. More....


Iran helping Afghan Insurgents

It has been reported that Iran is decreasing its' support for insurgents in Iraq. It is alleged they are no longer allowing weapons to freely flow across their border into Iraq. A recent report from the Pentagon disputes this assertion.

Canada is now saying they have turned their attention to arming insurgent's in Afghanistan....

From Iran Focus --

KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - Defence Minister Peter MacKay says weapons are flowing from Iran into the hands of Afghan insurgents.

He says improvised explosive devices from Iran have been a particular concern for Canadians.

Most of Canada's 73 combat deaths have been the result of IEDs.He says it's been difficult for Canada to address the issue though he has made his concerns known to the Iranian government.

He says it's difficult to cut the lines of supply when you have people in other countries giving weapons to be used against Canadian and coalition forces.

Why we need a Missile Defense System - Reason # 975,438

Here is another reason why the U.S. cannot afford to stop working on our missile defense system - Russia successfully tested a new ICBM capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads....

From Breitbart --
The Strategic Missile Forces said the RS-24 missile is designed to replace Soviet-built missiles with multiple nuclear warheads, such as RS-18 and RS-20. Those missiles are known in the West as the SS-19 Stiletto and the SS-18 Satan.

"The RS-24's deployment will strengthen the Strategic Missile Forces' capability to penetrate missile defense systems and strengthen the nuclear deterrent potential of Russia's strategic nuclear forces," the statement said. "The RS-24 will form the backbone of the Strategic Missile Forces and safely ensure the security of Russia and its allies through the mid-century."

President Vladimir Putin has used windfall oil revenues to modernize Russia's military arsenals amid increasing tensions with the West. The Kremlin has fiercely opposed U.S. plans to deploy missile defense sites in Poland and the Czech Republic, saying they threaten Russia's security.

Earlier this year Russia successfully tested a thermobaric bomb that they are calling the "Dad of all Bombs."

Chavez is Bananas for Oil

The man that is his own "Mini-Me," Venezuelan top banana Hugo Chavez has finally lost his mind. Chavez has offered other Latin American countrys the option of paying for oil by trade using local products such as sugar, bananas, etc...

Chavez is using this produce for oil theory to help members of the 17 nation Petrocaribe alliance pay down their $1 billion debt owed to Venezuela....

From Al-Jazeera --

"We have begun to create a new geopolitics of oil that is not at the service of the interests of imperialism and big capitalists," Chavez said in his speech.

He dismissed Americans and "Yankees" and pledged Venezuela's oil and gas would "always be at the service" of its "brother nations".

"We propose adding to the financed portion of the oil bill a method of payment that includes the supply of a series of local products and services," he said. More....

Al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Calls for More Attacks on "Awakening Councils"



The leader of Al-Qaeda in Iraq - Abu Omar al-Baghdadi - just issued a tape titled "Humble Towards the Believers, Powerful Towards the Disbelievers."

From the International Herald Tribune --

In the 47-minute audiotape, Abu Omar al-Baghdadi called on militants in Iraq to kill members of the Awakening Councils — mostly Sunnis who once fought against the U.S. but have since turned their guns on extremists — instead of slaughtering animals to mark the holiday.

"I call on you today to sacrifice ... the apostates of the awakening (councils) because they have became supporters for the cross and stood against the Mujahideen, violating the honor and looting the money," said al-Baghdadi.

"If that (slaughter) brings death and destruction for the animals, then carrying it out against the infidels and begrudged apostates is favorable to bring their blood as sacrifice," said al-Baghdadi.

Eid al-Adha commemorates the prophet Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son for God. According to Muslim tradition, right before Abraham was about to slay his son, God sent the prophet two sheep instead for slaughter. More....



Al-Baghead has been a pain in the a** and causing problems in Iraq for some time now. Click here to read a transcript of a speech titled, “The Truth has Emerged And Deceit Has Vanished,” he gave on Dec. 29, 2006. Note how the transcript shows the speech comes from - "The Islamic State of Iraq."

But the question remains if al-Baghead really even exists! Intelligence reports indicate his speeches may be given by an actor and he may have actually been, Muharib Abdul Latif al-Jubouri, who was killed in 2006.

I have posted before on these Sunni based groups called - Awakening Councils. These councils have been created to help combat the violence in Sunni neighborhoods. Proof that these councils have been working are the increased attacks their facing from Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Tired of the violence from extremists and foriegn militants, many Shiite towns are forming their own "Awakening Councils."

Huckabee Exposed in Iowa Next Week for Lies about Amnesty!



From ALIPAC --

Friday December 21, 2007

CONTACT: ALIPAC (866) 329-3999, press@alipac.us

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) will launch a campaign the day after Christmas, to expose the Mike Huckabee campaign for attempting to lie about his pro-Amnesty immigration stances, while using the lone endorsement of a Minuteman to shield his plan from scrutiny.

The ALIPAC plan involves massive phone contacts with Republican voters in Iowa, a talk radio blitz, radio ads, and an activist team on the ground that will target 50,000 Republican voter households. ALIPAC's William Gheen, Peter Gadiel of 9/11 Families for a Secure America, and Dan Smeriglio of Voice of the People (Hazleton, PA) will hit the ground and air waves in Iowa December 26 through 30th.

The goal will be to warn Iowans that Huckabee (Huckster) is trying to hide his stance that illegal aliens should be allowed to leave for a day and then quickly return legally, which is really 'touchback' amnesty.

Gheen, Gadiel, and Smeriglio will be working with others that represent the 84 organization leaders that have released a letter rebuking the endorsement of lone Minuteman Jim Gilchrist and Huckabee's deceptive amnesty plan. (Letter Copy at ALIPAC.us)

"Mike Huckabee cannot escape the truth and if the voters know the truth, his surge will collapse," says William Gheen of ALIPAC. "If you look at Huckster's website, he wants you to believe he will make illegal aliens leave the country in 120 days! Strange how he does not mention the part of his plan which allows them to return the next day. Mike Huckabee is a liar and the last thing we need is another liar in the White House!"

While Mike Huckabee's promoted immigration plan appears tough on immigration enforcement, his campaign statements and website omit the part about the fast return of illegal aliens. Mike Huckabee stated on Fox news December 9th that illegals should be able to apply for the path to citizenship like a "credit card" and be back in a matter of days! He has since refused to discuss this position with the press.

Further controversy erupted last week, when 84 Leaders of immigration enforcement organizations quickly rebuked lone Minuteman Jim Gilchrist and the Huckster for trying to trick voters into supporting a pro-Amnesty candidate.

"We are launching an extensive effort in Iowa to try and repair the damage and to warn Iowans about this trick that is being played on them by Huckabee and Gilchrist," says William Gheen. "Mike Huckabee has one of the worst records on immigration enforcement out of the GOP candidates and what makes him the bottom of the barrel is his willingness to lie to the nation. He lied about his theology degree and he is lying about his immigration enforcement promises."

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is a North Carolina based national organization that has over 25,000 supporters of all races, political affiliations, and religions. ALIPAC will be meeting with members of the press and Presidential campaigns next week. For more information, please visit us on the web at http://www.alipac.us/

Obama takes gloves off - "Edwards is a Hypocrite"

Oh yeah - I'm lovin' this!

Barack "The Rock" Obama, the democrat primary candidate with ears like dumbo, has taken off his gloves and is attacking pretty boy democrat candidate - John "The Breck Girl" Edwards.

By creating gale force winds with a flap of his ears, Obama is attempting to wisk away the smoke screen that has been shrouding the Edwards Campaign and their love for 527's.....

From USA Today --
Obama pointed to a nearly $800,000 advertising campaign being launched for Iowa voters by Alliance for a New America, a labor-affiliated group that is independent of the Edwards campaign but supportive of him.

"John said yesterday, he didn't believe in these 527s," Obama said. "You can't say yesterday, you don't believe in it and today three-quarters of a million dollars is being spent for you. You can't just talk the talk. Everybody talks change, but how did they act when it was not convenient, when it's hard?"

"I've got a track record," Obama said of restraining special interests. "I don't just talk the talk, I walk the walk." More....

Yeah OK Obama, you walk the walk - sure you do! But only if your wife or Oprah are holding the leash!

Is Rudolph Being Outsourced?


Astronomers are telling us if you look to the east after sunset tonight that bright little red light following the Moon is the planet Mars.


Mars is a red-tinged planet, With a very shiny glow
And if you look to see it, You will find the moon in tow.


All of the other Yuletides, Santa would have at his side
The shiny nose of Rudolph, Acting as his big sleigh's guide


But this very Christmas Eve, Santa came to say:

"Rudolph, now with Mars so bright, You can stay at home tonight."

Then all the reindeer teased him.

And they shouted out with glee:

"Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer, Outsourced to astronomy."

I'll definitely be out there looking! I believe the red light in the sky tonight will be Rudolph. Come on, what's the odds that on Christmas Eve the red light in the sky is going to be Mars!

Now had they said the bright red light was the red-nose of a Tequila saturated Mexican and his ACLU loving illegal immigrant relatives driving the sleigh for Dennis Kookcinich, who was wearing an aluminum foil hat.... maybe I would believe them.

But Mars - NO WAY!

Hash Brownies Served in Jail

I am finally done laughing enough to post this....

From The Columbus Dispatch --

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) -- A man being held in a Dutch police cell on suspicion of growing cannabis got an unintended treat in his lunch - a piece of hashish-laced cake, a spokesman said Thursday.

"It was an accident," said Alwin Don, police spokesman in the southern province of Zeeland.

The hash cake had earlier been seized by police in an unrelated investigation and stored in a refrigerator - close to lunch packets served to suspects being held in cells at the police station in Goes, 110 miles south of Amsterdam.


I wonder if hash gives you the munchies? Having the munchies in jail would be a total bummer - Dude!

Rev. Ted whines about Health Care for Kids

Rev. Ted has his panties in a bunch over President Bush holding his ground on increasing health care for kids. Yep, Teddy Boy is upset because Bush refuses to bow to the sensationalizing spin elected officials are trying to put on his veto of the Bull-SCHIP program....

From the Columbus Discourse --

"What this means is that thousands of needy Ohio children will be deprived of access to critical health-care coverage," Strickland said.

"I am appalled at the heartless decision of the Bush administration to reject Ohio's bipartisan plan to provide health-care access to thousands of our children. Sadly, this is an indication that the president and his advisers are totally out of touch with the struggles faced by so many Ohio families."


That's it Rev. Ted - deflect attention from your failures as our Governor (how's that fixing our schools coming?) and jump on the bleeding heart bandwagon. And Senate President Bill M. Harris, R-Ashland and the other state republicans are no better as many are backing this irresponsible proposal.

Socialists across the country are screaming foul and twisting this into Bush does not like kids. In reality, it is the other way around. Bush DOES want to make sure all kids from economically disadvantaged families get health care - and that is the problem.

Bush say's get all the kids from the poorest families enrolled first - then we can talk about increasing the program to include other children. The Prez also wants all the loopholes closed that will allow illegal immigrants to obtain health care under this first step toward government run health care.
....states must get at least 95 percent of children in families with incomes below 200 percent of the poverty level enrolled in the program before eligibility could be expanded. No state meets that benchmark.
Look people, I find it hard to believe anybody is against depriving needy children of anything. I know I am surely not - but blindly expanding this program will do nothing but increase the burden health care is placing on all Americans today.

Throwing good money after bad money is not the way to solve the health care problem plaguing our country today. We need to act responsible and stop the problem where it starts - the astronomically high costs being charged by the medical & insurance industries that are fleecing everyday Americans.

I have posted before on how whenever someone tries to reign in these costs they are met with resistence. Believe it or not, the one government agency we all the love to hate- the IRS - is trying to help by asking non-profit hospitals to justify this most cherished status. With the help of U.S. Rep. Stephanie Tubbs Jones, the darling democrat from Cleveland, these multi-million dollar health care corporations, that pay no taxes, are refusing to be accountable.

I find it ironic the democrats who always bellow that "republicans are for big business" are trying to advance an ill-fated plan that will increase the bottom line for the corporate elite of the medical & insurance companies.

Man stabbed for opening Christmas gift early

When I was married my ex told me I did not know how to argue. She would claim that when I argued - it was, figuratively speaking, for blood. Well, this lady below took it literally.....

From Fox News --

A woman stabbed her husband with a kitchen knife following an argument that began when she accused him of opening a Christmas present early, authorities said Friday.

Authorities said Shawn Johnson called 911 just before 1 a.m. Wednesday to report that his wife had stabbed him. He told police that his wife started arguing with him over his opening a Christmas present, according to court records. More....


I always used to tell my ex that my Mom always allowed me to open one gift before Christmas. She always said, "what's the difference, you act like a 6yr old anyway - so go ahead."

Maybe this guy should have tried using that excuse!
