Quote of week #2

Week ending December 25, 2005

No need to wait till the end of the week, I knew I had it watching the Sunday morning gab shows. Sen. Harry Reid gave me the quote of the week while standing in front of a mob of proud democrats and smugly pronouncing...

"Think about what happened 20 minutes ago in the United States Senate. We killed the Patriot Act."

— Harry Reid (D - NV)


As I watched the full video clip, I almost retched, pay special attention to the smug expression of pride & statisfaction on his face as he declares the destruction of the The Patriot Act, which passed the Senate by a vote of 98-1 (yes, he voted for it) in the weeks following the September 11, 2001, attacks. The Patriot Act was created "to deter and punish terrorist acts in the United States and around the world, to enhance law enforcement investigatory tools."  This bill help fix the "connect the dots problem" and tore down the "Jamie Gorelic wall" ( I'll explain that 'nightmare' in later blog) which prevented intelligence agencies from talking to each other,and continuined the deconstruction of US intelligence services that began with Church commission, in the 70's. The USA PATRIOT Act brought all that silliness to a end. Sadly all 16 provisions of the Patriot Act that were scheduled to expire at the end of this month, Its renewal would make 14 of these provisions permanent, it would reauthorize critical national security tools, while bolstering the Patriot Act's significant protections of civil liberties. It also includes provisions to fight crime and terrorism at America's seaports, and tougher criminal penalties and increased resources to combat the dangerous spread of meth-amphetamine abuse throughout our country. (bonus)

Here is a list of Senators who will be directly to blame for the next time (God forbid) America is attacked again, responsibility will rest squarely on their shoulders, I can't to hear them explain how they could strip away America’s ability to protect herself from terrorists and why they always stand up to protect the "rights" of terrorists over the rights of Americans.

Barber Kong

Street Theater: This weekend I stopped by the barbershop to get cleaned up, a quick 'lop and chop' to get ready for the Christmas visiting. This shop like most others has a Tv in the corner, usually playing "the game", the news, or sometimes even running Madden 2005. As I settled in the chair I caught out the corner of my eye the preview for King Kong. I know, I know, Kong just came out last wednesday, and they'll probably run them every 10 minutes for the next two weeks, "so it goes." Shortly afterwards the barber began his grim work, and after a few minutes I saw it again, buzz, buzz, cut, cut more Kong. Then it hit me, "thats not a preview that's the damn movie..." (Good Grief) It just opened 4 days ago.

Allow me to recommend you go see, it looked pretty good... LMAO.

That's right 'Big Media', keep suing children, and adding Draconian DRM code, and root-kits that wont work with my next computer upgrade, that'll stop media copying dead in it's tracks. Riiiiight! Hey you moronsHere's a marketing strategy (no consultants ness.) make your content easier to download, easier to buy, easier to use, and more easily portable, than some street hustler. I don't know like iTunes maybe, you heard of it?

Iraqi Voter, Dearborn Michigan: "Go To Hell" (VIDEO)

“Anybody who doesn’t
appreciate what America
has done and President Bush,
let them go to hell”

– Iraqi Citizen, voter Betty Dawisha


You tell 'em sister
             - Race Bannon

If this woman is representative of most Iraqis (which I doubt), Iraq is headed down the same path the U.S. is on — ever increasing division, bitter partisanship and ineffectual government. That's indeed something to "cheer" about.

Mr. One Thousand and One

Total time to 'completion of Justice'
36 min 15 sec... 12:35am

By the time you read this, Stanley Tookie Williams will be dead. Tookie the self confessed cofounder of the notorious international gang called the "CRIPS" will have been put to death buy the state of California. As I write this, there is as a tempest in teapot going on, over this piece of human debris. All the usual suspects will be holding court at San Quentin prison, Rev. Jackson, the Hollywood elite as well as 'fringe leftist' who will find a way to connect (blame) this execution to capitalism and, George W. Bush. All are in attendance, wailing, jostling for the next hot mic or live camera. This for someone, who's name they couldn't spell a few weeks ago, and will not be able to remember after the holiday season? They're bloviating, never missing an a chance to parot to anyone one who'll listen, what a rotten, barbaric country America is... (and the drumbeat goes on) They'll hit every talking point, making sure not to miss an a opportunity to play upon the conflicted feelings, any normal person should have over state sponsored ritualized killing.

My feelings over this event are conflicted but just barely? I should be totally honest it's because of who this man was. Remember this man didn't just choose to join a gang, he set up a self perpetuating machine (still in motion btw), to shepherd countless others into his "CRIP lifestyle," who will then victimize countless others in the future. Let's us reflect a little, I doubt that Hitler ever shoved a Jew into the showers himself, but he built the system that fed the ovens and deserved his fate in the end and so does Stanley. Tookie isn't just convicted of a killing, these were brutal, callous, murders.

As the execution hour approaches, let's keep the focus where it belongs.

THE NAMES OF THE VICTIMS:(and the crimes)





Funny the older I get the more pro life I get. Yes I believe that I Terry Schiavo should still be alive, and that abortion is killing a child, if it isn't, then let's be honest, why do it? So, I have to ask myself... why am I not more upset over this 'completion of justice'? My answer; because I believe in evil and 'the evil that men do'. I know and that they live among us, just waiting to separate one of us from the herd. Men who take joy and pleasure in hunting others human beings, raping them, cutting off their arms and leaving them in a ditch. The recent sociopath short list? BTK, the Green River Killer, Scott Peterson, and Tookie Williams.

(sidebar) I went to the Timothy McVeigh execution In a effort to make short film a local woman said something that stuck with me when I asked her the 'what do you think question'.

"...When he, (Timmy) did what he did, took himself out of the 'American Family' He deserves to die..." This comment facinated me on many levels, but the idea that 'in doing these evil things' one is betraying ones 'family', intrigued me so that even today it adds a special intensity to all murders I hear about.

Nonetheless... this is the taking of human life, and if I may paraphrase a gagline from my pro-choice friends it should be "safe, legal and rare". In sharp contrast to others who are also way 'less disturbed' by capital punishment (than let's say the media), I'm not at all upset with the systems lengthy appeals process, I think if we choose this form a punishment it's best to be through. In the case of mister Williams it gave him 26 more years of life than he gave to his prey, and judging by the way 'he was living' at the time of his arrest, he's probably lived way longer in jail than he would have if he stayed on the street. I also believe all capital cases should require automatic DNA test, whether or not it was key to the case. The finale irony is, I'm proud that I live in a non-death penalty state, and yet... I don't object to states who choose differently. Again truth-be-told, I'm not so much sadden when these men are put to death, as relived. (To the right; 3 of Tookies the last four, victims).

Three things Tookie could have done to Show 'Redemption'
and save His Life

1) Admit to the killings - Give the family peace and closure. Hey, if he didn't do it why'd he need redemption? Forthermore if he didn't,, who did? He was the 'man' on the street he, would have heard who did a triple homicide.

2) Denounce the "CRIPS", very vocally as a violent, dead-end criminal organization.

3) Submit to "debriefing": In debriefing, a prisoner has to divulge everything he knows about the gang, and even agree to testify against other members. (and thus saving lives)

These simple acts of true redemption would have made it easy for me to at least write a letter on the side of saving his life maybe even sending money, but I found his crimes way to disturbing to do anything more than just on sit my hands and let the states machine grind him under.

In the end he never took these steps, (a few ghost written books don't get it done) so I'm incline of agree with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger about why not to grant to executive clemency... (See full trans. script below)

One Last Point; Why do you think the media didn't show the victims faces?

Stunts for Punks

Feel the guilt, send a check...

Here we go again,when will the activist learn? Recently PeTA started yet another propaganda campaign, this time in a comic book style, and handed them out to your children at schools across America. Bottom line message: If your father fishes he will kill your cat or dog. Parents go berserk who, how, why, they'll ask? Talk shows, then will invite the very ernest, the very smug, and the very young PeTA representative to explain themselves, of course during the interview the PeTA rep. will avoid any direct or meaningful answers to questions about their despicable and fanatical tactics, as they proceed to shill their web sites, "1-800 numbers" and future protest rallies. Soon the fervor over their stunt dies down, and they will "rinse and repeat" this media strategy. This is all done in the name of "the just and right cause" of respecting all animal life, expanding conscienceness, and stopping any and all harm of "our furry friends." (the reality about that last part in the last next paragraph). Seriously Hats off, it's brilliant viral marketing, and they get national air time for free! They're a fringe group that now has the media footprint of a major movement all for the cost of a few hundred printed handouts.

But I wish to warn our friends at PeTA about the law of diminishing returns, that is to say they need to learn "the lessons of Reefer Madness." Everyone remembers that film right? It was a health and welfare type film made in the 1930's to warn wayward preppies of the dangers of drug use. It is still used today as a metaphor for anti-drug hysteria (not true it's just campy, and very bad story telling) Even today, after living through the druggy wasteland of the 70's, the crack epidemic of the 80's, and the very public decline (due to drug use) of most of the media's heros in the 90's, when someone dare try to suggest the idea that drugs may not be best way to spend your time what do you think is thrown out an rebuttal? After some very condescending head shakes and chuckles they say "isn't that what they told us in Reefer Madness" and then the "fill-in-the blank" Talk show runs a 5 sec clip of 30's flappers doing the charleston in a living room before (gasp) falling on a couch together. Over the top ok, funny for sure, good tv you bet, but that wasn't the point was it? Why is this film a joke? You see that film wasn't the way most people experienced marijuana therefore drug advocates or if you will the anti-drug detractors had a powerful weapon to use for decades to come to frame their enemies. Which is my point PeTA who do you think your converting with this stunt? Your group is already suffering from perception of being a "fellow traveler" whose ultimate goal is anti-property, anti-family, and hostile in general to American culture. How again does that help Animals? PeTA wouldn't it be more effective to dial it back a bit? I mean, every kid that sees their dad fish and not kill the family dog, every family building their first home only to find it burnt to the ground by you (or your tree hugging allies in Earth Alliance ), and every-time your tactics/claims/asertions are proven untrue through their experience you losing a future zealot not just today but for decades.

Finally lets all remember the only reason we listen to PeTA at all... misplaced GUILT! (probably over some cruel act done as a kid) Were told that these people morally superior to you or I. They set a high standard don't they, "never to eat, wear, experiment on, or use for entertainment any animal." No fur, no testing, heck PeTA doesn't even want us to keep them as pets. These people are the vanguard of compassion and ethical treatment of animals, right? (can you fill the guilt) Then again...you can understand how I was shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out that PeTA kills 79.6% of animals they received as rescues (people believe its a none kill shelter) over the last 6 and a half years. PeTA even got busted for illegally killing, and dumping the bodies in a North Carolina Piggly Wiggly. (now thats irony!) This wouldn't been so shocking if PeTA hadn't raked in nearly $29 million last year in income. I also learned that in 2000, when the Associated Press first noted PeTA's Kervorkian-esque tendencies, PeTA president Ingrid Newkirk complained that actually taking care of animals costs more than killing them. "We could become a no-kill shelter immediately," she admitted. I wonder where the money, went printing & shipping perhaps? Sigh, 29 million people, 29 million dollars aint that enough for puppy chow?


Here it is one more time your 29 million at work (pitting kids against parents).

The devil is just one man with a plan, but evil ... true evil is a collaboration of men which is what we have here today. If I am a guilty man, my crime is in daring to believe that the truth will out ... I believe it still. Much as you try to bury it, the truth is out there. Greater than your lies, the truth wants to be known. ...It'll come to you as it's come to me, faster than the speed of light. -agent Fox Mulder
