Intolerance ends in death.

You don't have to agree with the sexual orientation of others, but it does not give you the right to treat those people in a way that violates their rights or threatens their life. Too many times the various hock types will feed their own ego by feeding on the fear of others and then lash out when that ego and manliness is threatened. The weakness of a few is costing the lives of others and it needs to stop. By all means, give your kids, your friends, your colleagues your opinions on sexual orientation. However, also give those people the right idea that while you may not agree, you defend their right to make that choice or to be that way (not going to debate the issue of born or bred here). No one has the right to take the life of another because of differences or a clash of beliefs. This is a sad statement on our so-called civilized society.

Uhm, you want to send a Terminator up my ass?

OK, I have a few issues with this one. I will have to suck it up and get this done as colon cancer is a concern in my family tree. However, the whole idea of a robot going up my butt and poking around does not give me the warm and fuzzies. I have watched too many movies where robots choose the most inopportune time to gain self-awareness and then turn around and try to rip their human oppressors a new one.

The other issue, as mentioned in this article, is that anything up my butt is going to be used with the term "adhesives" in its name. Uhm, as much as DW wishes she could permanently plug up the gas-producing orifice that is my rectal aperature, we are not yet ready to take the chance of that actually happening. Mr. Elmer, you and your glue people are not allowed any where near my ass. Thank you.

I thought it was Hillary running?

So why, in the last paragraph, is the Clinton spokesman saying that "Fe have done more to build the Democratic Party than BILL and Hillary Clinton"? I know you are saying so what, but let's examine this. People are voicing their fear than Bill Clinton cannot and will not act in the typical first spouse role. That is, they fear he will have too much influence in the White House and while they want Hillary in, they don't want a repeat four years of Bill. Further, he has been at the very least a big distraction on this campaign from Hillary's message. Hell, if you look at the buttons they were handing out, his head is bigger on the button than hers. So, even subtley, why would you not ensure that everything mentioned with the two of them has the bigger focus on Hillary and treat Bill as an afterthought? This can only bode well for the Obama camp and it is another glaring reason that Barack wants nothing to do with the idea of Hillary running as his Vice-president. The price of that arrangement is to also invite Bill back into the White House with you and that may be too high a price to pay.

BTW, I love Bill Clinton for many different reasons and I think he was a much better president that GWB, but this is now not then and times are different. He should have stayed in the shadows more to allow his wife to shine and show HER strengths as her own woman, who just happens to be married to a former president. It is my opinion that he did not do her campaign any favours. I do like Hillary as well, but I think it is truly a time for change in our cousins to the south's politics. There are very good reasons that the world dislikes Americans and there are some very stupid reasons for it. The former can be helped by a changing of the guard. The latter, well, you just cannot fight stupid easily; the last eight years should have shown everyone that.


Clinton donors warn Pelosi - Hillary Clinton News-

Do the unions and other employees really think they are not already tracked?

If they believe they have been getting away with showing up late, not showing up at all, filing false time sheets/cards and generally "sticking it to the man", they are dumber than people thought they were. Everyday, there are cameras, card scanners, computer logins and other items that can be used to track where you have been and what you have been doing for the day. Doubt me? Ok, let's take my typical day.

I get up in the morning and I turn on the TV to watch Breakfast Television on CityTV (local Toronto morning show). The cable company's digital box sends a signal to Rogers Cable and let's them know that the box is on and what channel I am currently viewing. If I am on-call, I may log into my work's VPN to check mail and the ticket queue to ensure nothing was missed overnight. My work server and firewalls log that the authentication attempt and response, how long I was in the system and what applications I accessed. I leave the house and head into work. Enroute I will be picked up by the Highway 401 traffic cameras, and any security cameras owned by the police in certain areas, by any redlight cameras, and by any security cameras owned by malls and shops that capture any part of the road. If I use a drive-thru, like at Tim Horton's or McDonald's, the cameras there will see me come through and the bank will record where I was and how much I spent there if I decide to use debit. When I finally arrive at work, there are security cameras everywhere from the parking lot to just near my desk so my entire path from car to chair is recorded. I also have to scan in my security pass two or four times, path dependent, in order to get into my office area; one includes a biometric fingerprint reader. When I am at work, my login to my laptop, and access to all the applications I use, plus the Internet usage, is all logged and tracked in our firewalls and servers. All movement in and around the office is recorded by at least six security cameras. Yes, even when I go to the bathroom, since it is outside our office area, I will scan to get in and out of the doors, and will be seen on at least three cameras before a single drop hits the urinal. When I shutdown my laptop to head home, a new wave of recording begins.

So, exactly how more intrusive is a palm scanner going to be in a typical person's life? Negligible. I understand the whole "Big Brother" aspect of it all but if you intend to live in a modern city and use modern tools then you will need to learn how to cope with it all in a modern manner. And, for the record, whining like a little pissant about your privacy and rights is NOT a modern manner. The quote in the article is indeed about this being about control. Just when have you know a union to ever want to give any of it up once they have it? If all the union workers arrive on time, do their damn jobs, and leave when they are supposed to (with exceptions being logged by their superiors for HR to adjust timesheets accordingly) then this really is moot and nothing will change. That said, having worked with and in the government environment for some time, we all know why there this so much bitching about this. Well, suck it up buttercups!! Do your job, come and go when you are supposed to and none of this will change your life as you know.

Heh, sorry, I guess doing the right thing is a change.

More Vista Woes

I just watched an online presentation recently held by a rep from Dell and Microsoft touting why it would be in a business' best interests to move to Vista now rather than later. This article and my continuing painful experience on trying to rebuild my family's PVR is in stark contrast to the fluffy bullshit that they were tossing at us in that presentation. The reality is that as much as Windows is a decent OS, it only becomes a great one after two or three service packs. And this only after millions of people have paid good money, time and sweat to identify the issues to Microsoft. We are either the greatest bunch of underpaid software testers in the world or the greatest bunch of lemmings. Go to a mirror now and check how much brown fur you've got on you!

Why I hate Sony and super hate that they won the HD war.

First they had the audacity to ask for money to remove crap from their systems that you did not ask for.

PC World - Business Center: Sony Removes Bloatware--for a Fee

Then they got a clue that maybe this was a bad PR move. Uhm, like putting a rootkit in the software DRM of your CDs. Or, like not licensing MD or Betamax technology to 3rd party people. Or uhm, how about the time they created their own memory called a Magicstick and no one else used it? Oh yeah, how about the time they rendered all early adopters' Blu-ray players incapable of playing the newer profile movies? Hasn't happened yet? You are right but it is on the way once the new profile is released. Only the Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) has the ability to upgrade its profile. Still want a Sony product? Why don't you just hand me the money and bend over instead? I'll be more gentle than they will be.


PC World - Business Center: Sony Retracts Bloatware Fee

But will it make XP any better than it already is?

A little Apple is good for everyone. The doctor was right. :)

I'd have to say both.

Our Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition PVR (say that five times fast) is currently sitting off beside me. This is because it was having some slight issues that I thought I would try Service Pack 1 on to see if it would fix them. Oh, it fixed them all right. Permanently. Now, it will boot to the login screen but upon loading everything up, it would either blue screen or freeze up or just die. Ok, I was prepped for this so I installed it from scratch with a disc with SP1 integrated (don't ask how I obtained this, I know people). That sort of fixed things but it is still out of whack, doesn't see all four tuners all the time and crashes frequently. I have to rebuild it from scratch again but this time I won't do any updates until I have all the hardware drivers and such updated. Only then will I look to update the OS and only after I take a clean image so I do not have to do this from scratch again. It all takes so much time and energy, both of which I am sorely lacking these days.

Another step to future Linux adoption in business environements.

You cannot change the world in a day but you can adjust it a little bit at a time. Being able to authenticate to an Active Directory server means that security is not compromised in your workplace and the worker can still get to the resources that he/she needs to do his/her job. The fact that the basic functionality is being offered free is also a good thing because testing things out should never cost anyone (no matter the platform). Those that want and need the extra functionality of the Enterprise version will rightly pay for those privileges. It is a win-win situation all around. That is, provided that Redmond doesn't go and deliberately muck things up with an "update".


PC World - Business Center: Likewise Opens Windows Networks to Linux, Macs

I love Apple, but here is a worthy contender to the MacBook Air.

Steve, I know you love simple concepts (look at the iPod, and iLife and Mac OS X for starters) so what on earth possessed you to leave off the killer items needed to ensure that the MacBook Air ruled them all? One USB port in an unusable place and form? Silly. No industry standard VGA or DVI out to allow connection to an external monitor (increasing the built-in's 13.3" real estate and paltry 1280x800 resolution)? Stupid. A flip down PITA of a hidden connector panel? Shortsighted. No wired Ethernet connection? Dubious. NO OPTICAL DRIVE?? That's just plain nutty, my friend.

OK, you laid the gauntlet down but now someone has answered and they have done so with a very convincing package. If I had to choose between looking good and being fully functional, looks will lose every single time. I hope by Christmas you do your thing and release the MacBook Air that you should have released in the first place. Use this Lenovo product as your target and blow it away. We know you can do it, so just get it done.

Ted? Byte me!!!

So, we get a notice in the mail from Rogers. We get LOTS of crap in the mail from them so I was expecting them to either ask me to pay them money or tout some new feature or service I have no need for and will not be subscribing too. Boy, were we surprised when I looked at this latest piece of dead tree.

Rogers is in the process of throttling bandwidth, limiting downloads and basically big brothering the whole damn thing. Oh wait, they are already doing so! In the information they sent, they were kind enough to point out how much bandwidth we had used in the last couple of months (November was exceptionally heavy with 170+GB transferred) and how much MORE we would have to pay according to their new rates. By their accounting, we need to "upgrade" our service to the highest one and pay them $100 for the privilege of a 95GB bandwidth cap and a $25 penalty ($1.20 I think per extra GB up to a max of $25) after that.

Well, I was contemplating a little change up in the homestead's service providers. this has given that concept a swift kick into reality. Look, I am all for a service charging a reasonable amount for what they provide but they are seriously pissing me off by taking advantage of those who don't know any better. At the top end of their chart, the service will provide 18Mps download and 1Mbps upload speeds. This seems much better than the 7Mbps down and 512Kbps up that we currently "enjoy". However, if you can show me ONE site that will allow an 18Mbps download speed, thereby justifying this outlay, I would sign up in a heartbeat. The fact is that there are none because commercial sites pay for the bandwidth they use and the other users you connect to are limited by the same crappy upload speeds that you are so the point is moot.

Sure, the larger pipe will allow more bittorrent streams BUT then we run into the hard cap limit. Do you really want someone telling you how much you can download? If they had said $100, no cap, and 2 or 3Mbps upload AND allow servers, then I would easily fork over the coin. But no, they would rather piss off a long time client and force me to look elsewhere. No, not to Bell Sympatico (unless an amazing sale comes up) as they were the first to perform this limited bandwidth stunt. There are smaller, reliable ISPs that allow servers, have decent pipe, and don't cap the bandwidth. I had started many times to look into alternatives but I am determined to tell the Rogers person that calls in exactly why I dropped their Internet bullshit service.

Oh yeah, as for email, I have a domain now so I am going to start using it to redirect our personal mail. We still use Gmail extensively for just about anything else anyhow. Sorry Ted, find someone else to finance that baseball team of yours. We are outta here.

Ciao, beeyatch!

All of our Toronto teams played today: Blue Jays (who?) beat the Detroit Tigers, Raptors lost to the Cleveland Cavaliers (LeBron is super sick!) and my beloved Maple Leafs shellacked the Buffalo Sabres tonight 4-1 and will swiftly kick the Ottawa Senators' asses tomorrow night. Yes, it is feeble playoff hope but it is still hope.

Another piece of my childhood fades away.

Everyone has certain things in their childhood which have left an indelible mark on their lives. Things that are bad and traumatic that haunt us and things that helped mold us, strengthen us and/or brought us great joy. I have many experiences on both sides of the coin which I will delve into another day. One thing I will share now, and obviously ties into the link below, is a memory from my childhood that was bright.

I do not remember if I was bought the book by a family member (highly unlikely) or if I got it through that now defunct but really missed Scholastic reading program. In any case, I had a book called Rendezvous with Rama. It was one of the first grown up science fiction books I ever read and was one of many that I enjoyed from the great writer Arthur C. Clarke. Like his peer Isaac Asimov, Mr. Clarke wove great tales about the mysteries of the universe and how mankind fit in it.

If you like reading (I really miss it), like science fiction, and haven't read it yet, try starting with Rama. I think you will enjoy this great work from a now lost great master of the craft. RIP.

The reason why men are imperfect beings?


A long time ago, I gave my brother the best piece of advice I could give as a fellow married guy: Make her choose! Whether it be the movies, when to eat, what to buy, or the outfit she should wear. Make her choose. Why is this important? Let me illustrate.

I have had enough experience with women in my life; not all of it good but better than most. The one most singularly frustrating common element in every encounter is the annoyingly inability of the female species to make a simple choice. Oh, it is very easy for them to make choices when it comes to the male, with an overwhelmingly majority of those being negative. NO, you cannot buy that TV. NO, you cannot have that sports car. NO, she and her friend cannot join us. NO, you cannot have a third piece of pie. NO, I will NOT do that. NO, you will not be getting a Cray supercomputer for Christmas. You get the idea.

However, when it comes to other things, things that usually involve them or are for them, there is always a see-saw, a fence-sitting, a wishy-washy ambiguity to life. Do I look fat in this? Do I look good in this? Do you like my hair? What do you feel like for dinner? What movie should we see? And on and on. Now, I know you are thinking that those questions seem simple enough but you are only lying to yourself and her. She does not want an answer from you on any of those. She simply wants to frustrate your life in asking the unanswerable. She already has the answers in her head but she wants you to play "blind concentration" to try and match your card to hers. Let me illustrate.

Do I look fat in this? Unanswerable because yes means you think she is fat and no means you are willing to lie to her and cannot be trusted. Do I look good in this? She has already decided that she does not and will either buy the other one she picked out or, in the case of her closet, put on the first outfit she chose. Either way, you are wrong and since she thought she did not look good, you are lying and therefore cannot be trusted. Do you like my hair? If she had it done recently and hated it, you are lying. If she wants it done, then you are either lying, are not paying close attention to her or you don't care how she looks. What do you feel like for dinner? She already nixed 90% of what you might wish to eat so you are an unhealthy boar and don't care what you try to push into her body. What movie shoudl we see? DANGER. If she was in a good mood, then evil and death filled movies will bring her down. If she was in a bad mood, then evil and death filled movies means you don't want to try and cheer her up. Just pick the chick flick and learn to sleep silently with popcorn in your cheeks.

We may be complicated at time but when it comes to questions, almost any man will tell you it is a black and white world to them: Yes or No. Left or Right. A or B. Introduce all the fluffy minutae, complicate things unnecessarily, don't answer the bloody question we asked in the first place and you risk the question not being asked again. So ladies, no matter how miffed I just made you, take my advice when a question of choice formulates in your brain: Just Choose. We'll both be much happier for it.

BTW, my brother was shocked to see it in action and implemented the methodology to great effect and personal stress reducing satisfaction. You can do it too.


NOTE: I had written this a couple of days ago but it ended up in draft for some reason.

Good versus Evil

The long awaited first service pack for Vista has been finally released. Our PVR here at home is running Ultimate and is a bit buggered (long story short, I tried to get TVersity running and pooched some connectivity) and will no longer register on the Xbox360. As such, I have to rebuild it anyhow so why not pooch it now completely and get it over with? I have had great success with MS SPs before and I have had major horrow stories where a recover of my files were necessary after I bought a new drive and built a clean system. I know, I know. You should be rebuilding a clean system every year when using Windows anyhow. Famine will have a field day with this I am sure. Bring on the open-source POV my friend!

Anyhow, as this article states, this service pack is already known to break currently working commercial software. If this were Apple or UNIX or Linux, there would be an uproar and people pointing and laughing at the non-windows users and all the usual rhetoric. However, because it is the monopolistic group, there will be no more of a shrug as people wait yet again for the commerical folks to come up with patches to fix what MS broke. Imagine that. GM makes a car that no longer works with the gasoline you always bought for it and they want the gasoline companies to fix it. how likely do you think that would be? Exactly, so yet again, WHY do we all continue to put up with this?

One simple answer is that, for some of us, we simply have no other choice. I cannot install Ubuntu on my work laptop and say I am not using Windows any longer. Besides the support issue, there are the licensing issues and liability and security. All of which our internal support people will balk at. So, I am stuck. At home, I am simply lazy to be dead honest. Sure, I can get my four tuners in my PVR machine working under Sage or MythTV but they are a pain in the ass to configure and get everything working correctly. Vista Ultimate simply works for the function I need it to perform. Snapstream's BeyondTV simply works on any windows to perform as we need it to. Simplicity does have its price but it is sometimes less than the alternative.

I long for the day when whole departments in Canada will say enough and start the exodus to open source the way European communities have done (i.e. an entire city in several countries have banished anything but open source from ALL levels of government). Alas, there are too many golf games, hockey games, basketball games, football games and hockey games where deals are done to allow this to happen. One day the king will be dethroned but today is not yet that day.

Weather gets better, people get stupider

Or maybe I am just noticing them a little more. Take for example the idiot East Indian girl this morning. She damn well knew that she was getting on the highway which is the ramp on the right. She just MUST get on first so goes into the left lane as she figures her little silver wannabe sports coupe would easily outrun TR when the light goes green. First, she knows nothing about automobiles and trucks. Two, she knows not my level of ignorance. Light turns green, we pull off, I enter ramp, she follows. Twit.

It's the same story day in and day out, year after year but it does not fail to ignite my passion when they cut me or others off and nearly cause unnecessary accidents because their time is obviously so much more valuable than everyone else's. I just want to walk up to them and smack them in the head to wake them up.

That or get a much bigger truck to hurt them with should they do stupid things around me. :)

Seriously, if you cannot tell that the marker stuck in the ground is where the side of your car SHOULD line up, then you simply should not be on the road. And you all damn well know that you are taking up two f**king parking space when you can open your door all the way and not even come close to hitting the next car over.

Playoff Dilemna

What to do, what to do. As a sports purist, the simple thought concerning the Toronto Maple Leafs is that they must play hard to the end of the season and try their best to get into the second season. The business person says that the team needs to play rookies and bench riders, effectively tanking the rest of the season in order to try to secure the most possible chances in the lottery to get the treasured number one pick in the next draft.

Sorry, for me it is very simple. You get paid to play. If you don't play to win each and every game, get the f**k off the ice!!

Today's Funny

Submitted by BT from MTL

Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, are excessively mischievous. They are always getting into trouble and their parents know all about it. If any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved.

The boys' mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually. So the mother sent the 8 year old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the preacher in the afternoon.

The preacher, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Do you know where God is, son?"

The boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open.

So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, "Where is God?!"

Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "Where is God?!"

The boy screamed & bolted from the room, ran directly home & dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him.

When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?" The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in BIG trouble this time.

"GOD is missing, and they think we did it!"

Free speech at its most clear

How does one know if the caller was really relaying her daughter's words? How do we know that the caller did not innocently forget that comparing a black man to a monkey night not be received particularly well? How do we know that this whole thing was not a big setup to once again remind America that a black man was running for president?

I can tell you what we do know. Rush Limbaugh is a big, fat liar!!! He did not know who Curious George is? Come on now. I bet he knows the names of every intern in the White House for the last fifty years. An icon of children's literature that spans the globe he was unaware of? You would have been better to apologize for laughing and moved on Rush. Now, you just proved to America that you cannot be trusted.

A follow-up porn post

I found this in the comments section of the site. Very interesting, funny and telling.


Did you woman ever think that maybe your husbands get sucked in and addicted to porn because YOU are boring in bed. Maybe if you watched with him and played out some of his fanasies for him he would be watching you and not porn. Maybe if you were actuially satifying your husband this would not be a problem.

The great porn debate

It is interesting when opposing sides of the debate come together and present their arguments. One thing I find interesting is that when a former porn person (in front of or behind the camera) goes mainstream or stops in porn there are two distinct reactions to the person. There is more acceptance for the former porn person that now denounces their former life as evil and wrong than there is for those who simply decided it was time to leave that life behind and do something else. Somehow, saying "nay" to one's former life cleanses you better than those who say nothing or still supports porn. Uhm, hmmmm. If I recall, all former porn people's "art" is still out there for anyone to see. SO, you run a church now and you try to get people to shed their ways but we can still rent your movie where you are giving or getting in various positions, with various devices in different orifices?

I definitely support the cleaning up of the industry in terms of making sure nobody underage is exploited and that the entire business runs as a business should, but in thinking of it as a business, like construction for example, one expects there are those who do not play by the rules, those who try to screw others to get ahead (pun intended) and those who will do whatever they need to to get to the top. To somehow hold the practices of this industry in disdain simply because the participants take their clothes off during their business transactions is hypocritical and naive. Simply put, if I am in business and I am going to get screwed over, I would rather it be by Jenna Jameson or Asia Carrera and not Donald Trump or George Bush.

As for the issue surrounding people's addictions and the access to porn by children, I must roll my eyes slowly. Look, people are addicted to alcohol all over the world. Has booze been banished from being made? No. People are addicted to prescription drugs. Have those drugs been pulled off the shelf and no longer are prescribed? No. People are re-mortgaging their homes and losing their families as they gamble their lives away. Has Las Vegas, Atlantic City, Casino Rama or Fallsview been closed down? No. So, all these vices, all these things that have proven harmful to a small section of society, still exist because we understand that the individual is ultimately responsible for making the right decision. Why should the pornography industry be treated any differently?

And don't get me started about the kids seeing this stuff. I will admit to finding a dirty magazine and VHS tape in the house and going through them. I had to work at finding them though because I knew they were there. Nowadays, parents have way more tools to ensure that, at least in their house, it is impossible for little Johnny or Janey to get access to any of that stuff. We cannot protect them 24/7/365 from it because other people are not as caring about that exposure but as parents, we can do our level best. I hate the whole "our kids will suffer" bullshit argument that these people keep brining up. Police your own damn kids and leave the makers of Ass Masters #9 out of it. I don't think it is the job of ANY industry to do YOUR job for you. Their job is to make it visibly for adults only, to take steps to limit the possibility of underage people to participate or obtain the items, but in the end, it is your house so ensure you know what is going on in it.

So, in the end, your view is your own; that is the great thing about opinions. Just remember what they say about glass houses.


Did Ron Jeremy 'Slam-Dunk' Porn Pastors?

Maybe she really wanted to be a model?

For someone that apparently passed the bar, this woman proves the old addage "You can teach book sense, but you cannot teach common sense". Forget the current technology of email and how fast and simple it is to forward on things to other people. Simply, would you say this to a potential employers face, even if you were not going to take the job, knowing that this person with an already established reputation was going to tell all his buddies, and tell those people to tell all their friends, to not touch your career with a ten foot pole? Not a chance. Email, however, makes the stupid brave; makes the meek grow huge stones that they simply cannot carry. Now, she not only will be shunned by almost every law firm in Boston, but she now has the notoriety as the flippant young comer and there are not a lot of people that will be willing to hire her stupid ass for both fear of the spotlight doing so will bring now and the possible stupid things she will do to the firm in the future. Welcome to Lewinsky land Dianna Abdala. You better be a damn good lawyer because you will have to open your own business now.

Or change careers.



ABC News: The 'Bla Bla Bla' Heard 'Round the World

Monday, March 03, 2008

Uhm, I would make a French joke, but...

Look. I have family in New York. I nearly lost that family when the planes hit the tower. I was a bawling mess for over 12hrs as the world that I knew and felt save in suddenly and forever ceased to exist. i know there is a lot of evil out there and a lot of stupid evil and greedy evil and ignorant evil and evil evil. But, if at any time, there was ever a shred of evidence that could prove that they brought the towers down, killing thousands and literally changing the landscape of a nation simply to save money, I'd be the first in line with the gun and the bullet.

Every day we see reports of the evil that people do when they blow themselves up to kill innocent people at a peace meeting. Or they kill others on the other side of a bridge because of their genetics. Or they wipe out a village because it is a different tribe. Or kidnap people, tourists daily to extract funds to fuel their drug wars. We see all of this and we know that evil exists.

I won't use the C-word but if I did, this rocket science of a dumbass SJ broad would definitely fit the label. It is a disgrace that she can use her new found international fame to desecrate the graves of those innocent people who died in those attacks and the consequent fallout all over the world. How dare she make such callous, unfounded, unproven statements. I don't much agree with a lot of what my American cousins do and stand for but I can tell you that I stand by them on this one. Ban the bitch from ever setting foot on North American soil again. Let her eat cake and star in bullshit art house films for she is persona non grata in Hollywood. Good job you dippy twit!!


CANOE -- JAM! - Oscar winner: U.S. faked 9/11

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Last week we heard the reports about the students in South Africa fooling the poor black staff into performing stupid games and tasks and making them eat and drink items that were urinated and defecated upon. All this done without the staff realizing what was being done to them and the fact that the film would end up on Internet sites around the world to showcase their humiliation. Apartheid may have been disbanded but racism is alive and well.

The link below continues the saga of a black woman that was victimized by six white people (and I use that term VERY loosely) who sexually assaulted her, men and women, beat her and kept her captive. Even if any of those involved were privy only to what was happening and did not actually perform any of the acts, they should be held in the same way was if they were her tormentors themselves. I cannot remember the term but if you go and watch The Accused with Jodi Foster and Kelly McGillis, you will see that they did not have the evidence to convict the actual rapists BUT they were able to prosecute and convict those guilty of complacency to the crime and egging on the rapists during the act. The exact same thing should happen in this case. By not calling the authourities and allowing the abuse to continue, those involved are as much to blame as those who actually committed the rape and stabbing of this young woman.

Those involved are trying to drive home this point in peaceful demonstrations. Should this farce of a trial continue as it is, just how long do you think it will remain peaceful? Further to that, just how do you expect the community to heal from this when a section of that community will feel as if they are back in the 1800s and concerned for their safety when no one else in power is? These are very sad times indeed and the fallout may be as bad for everyone else as this experience was for this poor innocent lady.

May cooler and smarter heads prevail.


Charleston Daily Mail - News - Williams family says sentences too light, calls for protest march

What to make of this?

We know very well that the overwhelmingly majority of service women and men overseas for any country are good people trying to do their best for the country they believe in. We also know that a few bad apples make the rest look VERY bad and brings in to question many policies and many conflicts.

I read a few articles surrounding this story and because of the cultural stigma associated with rape, especially in these Asian cultures, you have to wonder whether the girl's family forced her to drop this to "save face" in the community or if the Armed Forces "helped" the family move in another direction.

In does not look very good and as many cases of false rape being cried, there are a multitude more of real rape cases going prosecuted. If the marine is guilty, chop them off!! If he is innocent though, his life will be forever tainted by the accusation and everyone's inability to prove it one way or another.

I'm not a big fan of Kobe Bryant's (even though I am a fan of his skills). That said, the evidence seems to show he simply f**ked up by f**king someone other than his wife. I do not believe for an instant that he raped that girl. And for the record, neither do I believe the little innocent church girl that went to Tyson's room to "watch TV" in the middle of the night. The problem is the burden of proof. And sometimes, it is better to let people think the worst than it is for them to know the whole truth.

What a world we live in.


Japan drops charges against U.S. Marine - Asia-Pacific -

Sorry, but you Americans really need a good hobby.

And a lot of you need a good F...riend. The man was born of American parents. End of story. Move on to things that actually matter for pete's sake.

McCain's citizenship called into question - Nightly News with Brian Williams-

HRC cannot realy be THAT stupid, can she?

Senator Clinton happens to be a woman. This fact should not, in a fair society, matter in terms of her presidential nomination bid. However, it damn well SHOULD matter when she is taking money from a company who has been accused of blatant and repeated sexual harassment of its female employees!! It does not matter if the company is innocent or not; that is for the court to decide. The fact of the matter is that the mere possibility that they can be found guilty should have her running in the other direction.

Now, before anyone tries to point it out, the Obama camp did indeed accept a much lower donation from an employee of this company and his wife. To their credit, they have returned the employee's money. To the head scratching disbelief of those watching though, they still kept the wife's two grand saying something about her not being part of the company. Uhm, splitting hairs Barack and you really don't want to start doing that until AFTER you have a seat in the White House.

So, what is the deal with Hilary and this money? Her husband goes on enough speaking engagements to make up that difference with ease. Why keep the money? This could very well cost her the nomination in the end because a lot of women feel as if she is victimizing them all over again. I feel that as a guy, so why can she not feel that as a woman?


Sen. Clinton accepts donations from troubled firm - Deep Background -

There is obviously more to this story to come out.

In the end, it is always the kids that suffer.

There is always someone covering their ass after they f**k up royally. the supervisor on this case should be fired at the very least. This was gross negligence that ended with someone dying. If that was construction, fired. In the oil fields, fired. On the fire department, fired. This should be no different. An idiot decision led to people dying. Fire his ass. And lock her ass up!!
