Happy New Year

Isn't it going to be great to have a 2007 without a Saddam Hussein in it?

What else should we celebrate about the end of 2006??

Saddam Hussein

Word is that Saddam Hussein is going to be executed within the next few hours.

Here are six words that make me giddy:

"Saddam Hussein is about to die."

You know what four words will make me even more giddy?

"Saddam Hussein is dead."

Movie Night

Last night was movie night at the Esmay abode. We bought Jake a couple DVDs for Christmas and viewed one after dinner. The movie? Talladega Nights: The Legend of Ricky Bobby

We all laughed so hard I was afraid I'd have some nasty laundry to take care of after. Lucky for me, we all held our spleens. Dean was even tricked into laughing at Sasha Baron Cohen. Cohen played the French guy to my utter delight.

I highly recommend this bawdy movie, if you are in need of uncontrolled laughter.

John Edwards

Jesus Christ, it's not even 2007 and already John Edwards has announced he's running for President. Talk about starting a little early!?!?

I actually like Edwards, but holy cow. Maybe he should announce for 2012 and 2016 while he's at it?

Gerald R. Ford, RIP

President FordOh my God. Gerald Ford is dead.

I guess most people don't care but... I always respected him. I'm so sad he's gone.

I don't think it's because he was from Michigan, but I do think he was a good man.

A Little Bit Of Monica In My Life

Survivor: Cook Islands, the Racial Divide

by Jerry

I'm not going to lie. I'm a HUGE Survivor fan, so my opinion may be just a tad bit skewed on this issue. But what was the big deal about the tribes initially being separated by race?

We had 4 initial tribes:

  1. Caucasian-Americans

  2. African-Americans

  3. Hispanic-Americans

  4. Asian-Americans

There was all this uproar about how unfair it was. How the show should be pulled or boycotted. The one thing the controversy did is make me realize how much an idiot Rush Limbaugh really is. He was unfamiliar with the format and made some very asinine statements about how the White tribe was dominating. They may have had the upper hand in the first episode, but that was going to end when the tribes merged to two. If you listened to El-Idiot-bo, they merged because the white tribe was too dominant. Apparently he did not watch the previous seasons where four tribes merged to two after the second episode. It was already in the works. They didn't do it because one side dominated.

If the white side was so dominant, how come the final 4 represented all ethnicities BUT white?

Thats right.

The final four contained an African-American, Hispanic-American and two Asian-Americans.

The ultimate survivor was Yul Kwon, an Asian-American. A very intelligent and deserving winner. He beat out Hispanic-American, and my personal favorite Ozzy Lusth. Ozzy won a car, so it wasn't all bad for him.

Of all 13 seasons of Survivor, I would have to say that this one was the best. Thanks to the twist of allowing 3 people to go before the jury it allowed for a 5-4-0 vote. Otherwise Ozzy would have taken Becky and won 7-0. Yul would have beaten Becky 7-0 as well.

It was a great season. It makes all those people who complained about how unfair and stupid it was, look like idiots. I'm betting that is exactly the way Mark Burnett wanted it. That man is a genius. Now only if he can get Trump to fire himself on the new season of The Apprentice..

Barak Obama May Not Run

So I read that Barak Obama may not run for President.

Jesus. Have you ever seen more people swooning over a first-term Senator with barely any real accomplishments before? I don't hate the guy but Jesus, the way they talk about him as if he's the Second Coming or some crap like that. It's just crazy isn't it?

Men Are Criminals?

Ron Coleman is annoyed at the way men are being treated.

Water Olson writes about a Yale Law Journal article suggesting that the brakes be applied on the trend toward making every husband in a divorce -- or a prospective divorce -- a criminal defendant.

We've all seen what's going on -- in our neighborhoods, in the police blotter, at school pickup. The pendulum rightfully moved off where it was the previous millenium. But now it's ridiculous.

There is a trend that makes a husband in a divorce proceeding a criminal defendant?

Man, it sucks to be you.

Senator Suffers Stroke

U.S. Senator Tim Johnson [D-SD] has reportedly suffered a stroke.

WASHINGTON - Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson of South Dakota suffered a possible stroke Wednesday and was taken to a Washington hospital, weeks before his party was to take control of the Senate by a one-vote margin.

Democrats won a 51-49 majority in the November election. South Dakota's governor, who would appoint any temporary replacement, is a Republican.

Please keep him and his family in your prayers. While I was disappointed to see the Senate change hands during the election, this is not the way I would like to get it back.

I had no idea that I was even nominated. Considering that lack of knowledge, I'm not doing too bad without any vote whoring.

Voting continues till December 15th. If you're bored, go vote for me or trim your nails.

A Soldier Speaks Out

Sgt. T. F. Boggs, who spent 30 months in Iraq, has some thoughts to share on the findings of the Iraq Survey Group.

After watching the Iraq Survey Group press conference today I am a firm believer that all politicians are idiots. Okay well not all of them but they all have a problem understanding reality. If any politician is reading this now feel free to email me and we’ll go out for coffee and I’ll further explain. But I digress.

The Iraq Survey Group’s findings or rather, recommendations are a joke and could have only come from a group of old people who have been stuck in Washington for too long. The brainpower of the ISG has come up with a new direction for our country and that includes negotiating with countries whose people chant “Death to America” and whose leaders deny the Holocaust and call for Israel to be wiped from the face of the earth. Baker and Hamilton want us to get terrorists supporting countries involved in fighting terrorism! If I am the only one who finds something wrong with that then please let me know because right now I feel like I am the only person who feels this way.

Not only are the findings of the ISG a joke but the people who led the group (Baker and Hamilton) treat soldiers like they are a joke. One of the main recommendations of the ISG is to send more troops to Iraq in order to train Iraqis so they can secure their own country, but they don’t feel that we are doing a good job of that right now because training Iraqis isn’t an attractive job for soldiers to do because it isn’t a “career advancing” job. As someone who trained Iraqis from time to time I take personal offense to this remark. In my experience soldiers clamored for the chance to train Iraqis. Any soldier who doesn’t think training Iraqis is worth their time because it isn’t a “career advancing” job shouldn’t be part in the war on terror plain and simple.

***

I feel like all of my efforts (30 months of deployment time) and the efforts of all my brothers in arms are all for naught. I thought old people were supposed to be more patient than a 24 year old but apparently I have more patience for our victory to unfold in Iraq than 99.9 percent of Americans. Iraq isn’t fast food--you can’t have what you want and have it now. To completely change a country for the first time in its entire history takes time, and when I say time I don’t mean 4 years.

Talking doesn’t solve anything with a crazed people, bullets do and we need to be given a chance to work our military magic. Like I told a reporter buddy of mine: War sucks but a world run by Islamofacists sucks more.

Money quote: "War sucks but a world run by Islamofacists sucks more."

Totally dude. Islamofacists suck even worse than Democrats the Greens.

Dumb Criminals

by Jerry K.

I came across this story in today's Detroit Free Press and just had to pass it along..

Story here

A couple excerpts:

The best place to commit a crime probably isn't in front of 80 uniformed police officers.

Well thats what the guy exactly DID. One Chesterfield Township officer had this to say:

"He has to be an idiot," Lt. David G. Marker said Wednesday. "I can't even imagine what he was thinking."

Such a heart warming story for the holidays..

Islamophobic Backlash Alert

After the business with the flying imams last week comes this: Muslim woman cites gym after interrupted prayer.

Ara can correct me if I make an inaccurate statement. What I am about to say is admittedly second-hand data. It is my understanding that some religiously observant Jews go out of their way to arrange their schedules on Fridays to avoid having to do "work" after sunset, in observance of the Sabbath. (The quotes are not derisive. They are intended to convey that work covers more activities than what most people would consider work. (I hate that I had to qualify that))

Similarly, one is unlikely to find observant Catholics picketing Arby's on Fridays during Lent to protest the consumption of meat by non-believers. (Not the most apt of analogies, but a better Catholic one escapes me)

So it is within the spirit of 'not making a spectacle of yourself to others who don't believe as you do' that I say:

Muslims! Go to the gym BETWEEN prayers.

Nobody prays at gyms during workouts. Or while shopping at grocery stores. Or during the last thirty minutes of "Happy Feet" at the theater. Or while pumping gas at the 7-Eleven. Or at the Pee-Wee Mini-Midget League football game (except for the players in the huddle before the game. At least until the ACLU gets wind of it).
