Generation Duuhh - Part 6

When an SAT prep test asks the students to write an essay, you never know what view or thought you are going to get, sometimes it is best not to ask. The following is an essay from a student who was asked about the pros and cons of technology.

The civilized man has built a coach, but has lost the use of his feet.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
Now I usually post images of the essay and then pick them apart. Recently, I was sent two pages from an essay and was really inspired by 2/3rds of the essay. The author quotes Ralph Waldo Emerson about the losses we incur as we depend more on technology. The essayist even admits to falling into the technology trap with the use of a calculator as a crutch, explaining they will probably not do well on the test because they left the machine at home.

I am not sure if Emerson would enjoy the summary of the paper as the author states that we will be taken over by our creations, then resorts to crude hieroglyphics to bring home the point.

International Respect for Chickens Day


Today is International Respect for Chickens Day. While Hallmark may not make a card for today and we have go to work, try to take some time to pay respect to your favorite chicken today. The founder of this special day is the voice behind several characters on the Simpsons, Harry Shearer.

Note: This is not to be confused with Chicken Holiday

Cast The First Stone

The Democrats are trying to make you believe they have suddenly found religion by quoting scripture. They overlooked one Biblical message, it goes something like this: Jesus came across a group of people about to stone a "sinner" to death. He intervened and asked the crowd "let the one who is free of sin cast the first stone". Well in their feverish rush to lay accusations and point fingers at Tom Delay and his much reported travels, they forgot when you point a finger at someone else, there are three more pointed back at you. As Ward Churchill would say, the chickens are coming home to roost.

10 out of the top 10 most traveled pols were Democrats

Our favorite whipping boy, Congressman Maurice "Rovebot" Hinchey (D-Hurley) has put in 102 days of work for the taxpayers of New York as a representative to Congress this year. But for 140 days since January 1, 2000, he has been on the dime of those evil special interest groups. Representative Hinchey's bill topped $161,393 covering 25 trip to such places as Rome and Morocco (and to some extent, the moon). While Delay is taking the heat, his total is $94,568 during the same time frame ($66,825 less than Hinchey). This ranks Maurice as the 5th highest spender of any federal lawmaker. You can see a list of all Maurice's trips here.

Hypocrisy Update: While Delay is being ripped on his travels, a Hinchey spokesperson stated that his excessive trips were "an important part of his job". (NY Post)

"I want Jack Bauer arrested!"
- President Logan

Does President Logan (the Nixon look-a-like) know whom he is dealing with? I hope the Secret Service has 126 Ninjas standing by to take down Jack. Even with num-chucks and throwing stars, they may not be any use against Bauer.

Why is former President Palmer still doing Allstate commercials? America needs him now.

It figures; the arab terrorist who is arming the nuke went to Berkley. I love Fox! Two weeks in a row they highlight the danger of when liberals go unchecked.

When America views the tape the Marwan made, I wonder if they will think: 1) Damn I never got to visit Philly before it was nuked or 2) That's a kicking Oakenfold dance mix in the background, I wish that terrorist would shut up.

Marwan made the mistake all classic bad guys make, never broadcast your intentions to the good guys while you have them hostage....or make a video tape of your plans and then let the guy holding the tape get in the way of Jack Bauer's bullets. On a side note, I guess video tapes are not bulletproof.

Former President Palmer: "Was Airforce One covered by Allstate?"

Secretary of State (the Cheney look-a-like) says to Palmer, "America could face its biggest terrorist threat yet". Do you think a better statement would have been: "America could face its biggest terrorist threat...since, you left office"? Should they have called the president in office prior to Palmer? Palmer seems to attract disasters like stink on shit, that's why he is now pimping Allstate insurance.

President Logan flip-flops and releases Bauer, this guy is worse than John Kerry. Well, probably not.

They are sending Chole out in the field? Are they freaking nuts, oh yea she is going to shoot someone. I guess Edgar could not get his fat-ass up in the CTU Ford Explorers.

An arab-looking guy named Samir located somewhere in Iowa. That pretty much narrows it down to one guy. He also breaks bad-guy rule #7: don't piss off your nosey girlfriend (who has a Computer Science degree).

HOLY SHIT Chole ended up shooting someone!

Lessons learned: Video tape - not bulletproof, Wirlpool washer/dryer combo - bulletproof

Next week: Jack dresses like a ninja and storms the Chinese embassy...possibly starts a war. Hell no, I don't make this stuff up.

Actress: 9/11 Was Our Fault

"I think what's good about the movie is that it deals with 9/11 in such a subtle, open, open way that I think it allows it to be more complicated than just 'Oh, look at these poor New Yorkers and how hard it was for them,' because I think America has done reprehensible things and is responsible in some way"
- Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal

Maggie Gyllenhaal (a New York native) made these comments at the Tribeca Film Festival, which was ironically founded to help lower Manhattan recover from the 9/11 attacks which Maggie thinks we so deserved. Screw her and he new film, The Great New Wonderful.

Update: Maggie's agent is Courtney Kivowitz at BenderSpink. Phone is (323) 856-5500 and fax is (323) 856-5502.

Holy Election Fraud!



Cesar Romero, who played The Joker on the Batman television series, died in 1994. In 2001 he became a resident of Brooklyn thanks to a crooked wanna-be politician needing names for a petition to be included an election ballot. In an odd joining of good and evil, The Joker's arch nemesis, Batman (aka Adam West), also joined him on the same petition. Holy Felony!

Germania Taveras was later ratted out by a volunteer for her campaign, José Monzon. Monzon noticed her attempts at forgery and had her add Romero and West as signers of the petition in an attempt to have her busted. José had approached her on the fraud and she responded with: "In politics there is no such thing as being fair, honey. Everybody plays dirty". Well, at least she is honest in some regard.

Taveras failed to win a seat on Brooklyn's 37th district and faced 62 counts of election fraud in 2003. She failed to show up for her court date and was later busted for hopping a subway turnstile. In the end, Tavaras recently pleaded guilty for offering a false instrument for filing, a felony which could land her in jail for 3 years.

24 Roundup

It's Monday, meaning that 24 will be on Fox tonight. Unlike Desperate Housewives, you don't need a replay of the enire season to get caught up. Here is this season of 24 in a nutshell: Jack Bauer yells into a cell phone, shoots the bad guys, big explosion, and random backup agent dies.

Last week ended just as Jack tricked a liberal lawyer and was about to get into the torture motiff that has ran throughout this season. Previous CTU torture methods failed to lead to any information because they did not let Jack in on the torturing. If Jack had been torturing, 24 would have been renamed 12.

Alas, this week ex-President Palmer has quit doing Allstate commercials and is back to give advice to the new president. Seriously, why would the new president call Palmer? During Palmer's tenure, the US was hit with a nuke and a killer virus. The president soliciting leadership advice from Palmer is akin to Brittany Spears seeking parenting advice from Courtney Love.

Whatever happens tonight on 24, be sure that I will pick it apart on Tuesday.

AM NewYork Called Out on Pope Photo

I included a picture of the pope in Friday's AM New York paper on this post. It took Greg at Catscape only seconds to see the obvious insult to the new pope "hidden" in the AP photo. I noticed it right away, leading me to wonder why the paper chose to run this particular photo out of thousands that were available. To claim that a trained, paid editor failed to spot this is laughable at best.

It seems as if the photo caught the eye and ire of some other readers. Their letters led the editors to issue an apology, calling it a "bizarre optical illusion". I think they should apologize for thinking we were stupid enough to think it was a mistake. AM New York is a daily free newspaper published by Newsday, a paper that never misses a chance to bash religion.

The New Pope


(see anything wrong with this picture? Post a comment if you do)

Not long after I was confirmed into the Catholic faith, John Paul II dies. The pageantry and tradition that followed was amazing in the eyes of this young Catholic neophyte. It was also pleasing to see the church being portrayed in a positive light for once in the media. Alas, the brief honeymoon with the media ended when Sir Elton John was not selected as the new leader of the church; instead it was one of those hated "conservatives". Alas the selection of this pope dashed the hope of some that the new pope would come out in sequined robes, usher in lesbian priests, and end with a loud "Fo Shizzle", in latin "Shizzlis Fozzi", and italian "pe Shizzi".

The white smoke had yet to clear and the negative media spin machine (starved of church bashing for weeks) eagerly went out to interview any person they could find who was unhappy with the new pope. I cannot stand reading articles like this written by people who want the church to throw away 2,000 years of tradition and bring in a "hip" pope. The church was not setup to mimic the latest trends in society, nor should it ever try to embellish the wants and desires of the latest fad in order to please a minority. People put their faith into their religion because the church itself is a rock to depend on. Trends have no such foundation and will eventually pass into the dustbin of time.

I live with my fiancé (in sin), the Catholic church is still there for me and will always be there. The first church, founded by St. Peter, was built on a rock and will remain there no matter what time throws its way. If you have a problem with it, email the new pope: benedictxvi@vatican.va

The Bush Beetle

Agathidium bushi, A. cheneyi, and A. rumsfeldi could soon be the names of recently discovered slime-mould beetles. The scientists behind the naming insist they are fans of George W. Bush and think it is a way to honor them. Others see it as an easy shot for jokesters as the beetles spend their days in and around "festering goo".

Past luminaries who have had new species named after them include: Darth Vader, Hernando Cortes, and Pocahontas. Come on, how about naming them: John, Ringo, Paul, and George?

Has Hell Froze?

A proposed abortion bill in the Senate would make abortion illegal under certain circumstances, such as a married couple having an unwanted child. The only instances where an abortion would be allowed are in cases where the mother’s health was threatened or if the fetus was conceived through incest or rape.

"I think with the passing of this bill we can stop future mothers from getting away with killing innocent babies" - Democratic Senator

Another bill in the Senate deals with stem cells and would allow scientists to use adult stem cells instead of embryonic stem cells for research aimed at enabling scientists to discover cures for life- threatening diseases like cancer and leukemia. The bill would be funded by allocating money from the Strategic Defense Initiative Act, and NASA and is to be enacted in 2008.

"The bill is needed because it gives scientists the opportunity to find cures because diseases are all around us so stem cells should be explored," - Republican Senator

Take a deep breath and don't bother checking for these quotes on Drudge or the Daily Kos because the senators are students taking part of a High School Model Congress in New Jersey. I thought it was ironic that a Donk was trying to limit abortions and a Republican was looking at cutting defense spending to study stem cells. That would surely be one of the signs of the apocalypse, the next being frogs raining from the sky.

The abortion bill was shot down and the stem cell bill passed leaving the "republican" gloating:

"The passing of the stem cell bill will help scientists save lives, allow people to have longer life spans, and healthier lives as well as bring hope to those who are very ill. The denial of the abortion bill will allow society and future mothers to decide whether they want to bring a child to the world and keep the freedom Americans live for valid," - Republican Senator
Talk about a true "RINO". My next update from the Model Congress will detail the fate of the Electorial college, the draft, and the name of Brittany's kid.

New Filthy Lie Assignment: Evil Glenn and baseball

How will Evil Glenn be getting involved in Major League Baseball?
(An Alliance Assignment*)

Prior to the 2005 season, MLB executives were looking to quicken the pace of games and bring more dog lovers into the ball parks. Evil Glenn, being a baseball fan and dog lover came up with a rule change that would kill two birds (or cats) with one stone. The Milwaukee Brewers also saw the idea as a way to deal with their state's own cat-hatred and volunteered to test out Evil Glenn's wicked plan.

Current MLB rules regarding the makeup of a baseball:

1.09 - The ball shall be a sphere formed by yarn wound around a small core of cork, rubber or similar material, covered with two stripes of white horsehide or cowhide, tightly stitched together. It shall weigh not less than five nor more than 5 1/4 ounces avoirdupois and measure not less than nine nor more than 9 1/4 inches in circumference. - MLB

Evil Glenn's rule change:
1.09 - The ball shall be a kitten. It shall weigh not less than five nor more than 5 1/4 ounces avoirdupois and measure not less than nine nor more than 9 1/4 inches in circumference.

The MLB liked Evil Glenn's rule change so much, they tried it out for one Spring Training game this year. The Milwaukee Brewers volunteered and were eager to test out the new balls. After that first game, it became clear to Baseball fans, executives, and equipment managers that kittens would not make a viable baseball replacement.

(Sunday March 7 - Brewers/Mariners)

Top 10 reasons Kittens are not a viable baseball replacement
10) Umpire's "strike" call interrupted by loud purring
9) PETA has bought season tickets
8) Catchers complained of kittens attacking after being thrown
7) When hit, kittens tend to separate into two or more projectiles
6) Pitchers complained that kittens do not like to be scuffed up
5) White kittens hard to see during the day, black kittens hard to see at night
4) Fans no longer thrilled to catch foul balls
3) Rabbits would probably be cheaper to use
2) Kittens are hard to stitch
1) Batters tend to "tear the cover off" the new balls

White Smoke: We have a pope!

Jack Bauer bags a Liberal

Much to the dismay of liberals everywhere, Jack Bauer stopped shooting muslims in order bring his wrath to the second most troublesome group in the war on terror: Bleeding Heart Liberals. In a storyline you will not see on F***ing Deadwood or The West Wing, the good guys win by getting rid of the pesky lawyer and breaking a thug's fingers one-by-one.

Between the hours of 12:00 and 1:00am, most of America is presumably sleeping. Not that an attack on a passenger train, nuclear meltdown, and the shooting down of Air Force One by a stolen F-117 Stealth fighter would keep anyone up watching the news. Apparently America does not care that a Dick Cheney look-a-like is pulling the strings of the new president.

The climax of the show had Curtis (backed up by 15 random backup agents) take down a suspected terrorist who has contact with the man who just stole a nuclear warhead. Now CTU should really evaluate their need for Jack Bauer, because all 15 agents returned without getting shot, stabbed, or blown up. As a taxpayer, I also would like them to reevaluate their manpower demands. When the nuclear codes need to be returned, they send Jack, a helicopter, and a doomed random backup agent. When they get a tip one possible terrorist, they send in 15 guys and Curtis. Someone needs to update their priorities before 43 CTU agents respond to a report of a double-parked car at the 7-11.

Curtis got his man and took him back to CTU. Curtis was then put in charge of doing what he does best, torturing the crap out of the bad guys (or gals). After this season, CTU needs to be renamed Careless Torture Unit because they have tortured the son of the Secretary of Defense (over two episodes) and found nothing, they tortured a 16 year old boy then his mother and found nothing, they even tortured one of their own employees and found...nothing. This time they are almost ready to get the next round of torture underway, when the head terrorist calls in the big guns. He phones Amnesty Global, a legal group aimed at aiding terrorist in custody (hello Amnesty International). The presence of the lawyer stops all "questioning" of the suspect, ensuring the bad guys a temporary victory.

Jack Bauer is not one to sit by and let crap like this happen, so he pulls the bald-headed civil- rights lawyer aside and asks him if he can live with the millions of Americans who could die due to CTU not being able to adequately torture the suspect, obviously the liberal lawyer has no problem with it. I guess if millions of spotted owls or a few acres of wasteland in Alaska were in harm, he would have personally helped Jack torture the suspect. Facing a nuclear holocaust, Jack quits CTU and takes matters into his own hands. After the suspect is released, the liberal lawyer hands the suspect his business card (probably printed on hemp paper), jumps into his imported Mazda Miata convertible (notice the good guys all drive Fords) and heads to Starbucks for some Caramel Mochachinos. In the meantime, Jack uses a taser gun to take down the US Marshall guarding the suspect and then starts to break the fingers of the suspect's right hand, one-by-one. Next week he will give the suspect paper cuts with the lawyer's business card and pour lemon juice on the wounds while giving him wet willies (following CTU procedure)

Some Random 24 Thoughts:

Jefferson City Iowa? There is no Jefferson City Iowa.

So they send in 15 agents to arrest one potential terrorist, but they send in only Jack to pick up the nuclear codes?

The Secretary of State (Dick Cheney look-a-like) stated that the convoy was struck in mountain area....in Iowa? Really?

CTU detains a guy who could lead America to the people who have a nuclear warhead. Leave it to FOX to have a liberal come in and screw things up. A lawyer, called in by a terrorist, from a group called Amnesty Global is sent in to make sure nothing happens to the guy and "due process" is followed. Amnesty International must be steaming right now. If that lawyer knew the extent of the torture that has gone on at CTU in the past few hours.... They tortured a 16 year old boy, the son of the Secretary of Defense, and even one of their own employees! Anyway Jack looks like he is going to pop a cap in the lawyer and terrorist.

In the end the liberal lawyer gets into his Mazda Miata (so he is gay as well) and heads off. The bad guy was escorted to his car and Jack ends up torturing him in his own car, by breaking his fingers. At least he did not give him a "wet willie".

I will have a full post tomorrow.

Black Smoke: No Pope

W

Recalling last year's team visit to the White House, Bush told the team: "I think I said last time there's a chance you'll be back. I wasn't sure about me." As the audience laughed and Bush winked at Kerry, the president added: "I'm confident I'll be back next year. And the way you've been playing, there's a good chance you will be, too." - AP
Do you think it rubs Kerry raw, that Bush has welcomed both the Red Sox and Patriots to the White House since being reelected? For that reason alone, I'm rooting for the Boston Bruins to win the Stanley Cup when the NHL starts its next season. It's not like the NY Rangers or Islanders have a snowball's chance in hell anyway.

George Soros: Antichrist?



Cardinal Giacomo Biffi is becoming a favorite among bookies betting on who will be the next pope. Biffi believes the Antichrist is living amongst us and would soon rise to prominence. According to Biffi, the Antichrist is a philanthropist who advocates causes like human rights, the environment, and ecumenicism. The cardinal also states the Antichrist, has a "fascinating personality" and also celebrates causes like vegetarianism, pacifism, environmentalism and animal rights.

George Soros is a philanthropist who advocates human rights, the environment, and ecumenicism. I am not fond of his personality, but for a few wackos I am sure he has a "facinating personality".

Now the "George W. Bush is the Antichrist" crowd dismisses these claims, adding that the Antichrist is most likely from Texas, speaks funny, and likes cowboy boots. The leaders behind these findings include the Archbishop of Moby and Cardinal Al Franken.

Generation Duuhh - Part 5

When an SAT prep test asks the students to write an essay, you never know what view or thought you are going to get, sometimes I think the kids don't know either. The following is an essay from a student who was asked about censorship. Somehow Vietnam and movies about the war framed the youngster's argument that: Vietnam wasn't all that bad, censorship on Vietnam war movies is ok but censorship on Not Another Teen Movie sucks.

(Click for a larger view)

Summary: Vietnam was not that bad because the student watched it on TV. Also, the censors did not affect the quality of TV coverage of the war or the Vietnam movies. It is obvious, they did not watch the stinker, Casualties of War with Sean Penn and Michael J. Fox. Other

Vietnam movies that did not suck: Platoon, Hamburger Hill, The Green Berets, Apocalypse Now


Summary: Another Teen Movie was hard to watch; not because it sucked, but because of censorship.

Other movies that sucked: The Big Hit, Iron Eagle II, Weekend at Bernies II, and the worst movie of all time, Millennium

I Miss Tennessee

Stories like this is why the TV show, COPS always come to Tennessee to film.

Jeff and Martha Freeman seemed like a happy couple, they lived in a tony Brentwood home, were licenced private investigators, and ran a business together. But Martha had a skeleton in the closet, well not really a skeleton, but kept Rafael DeJesus Rocha-Perez in the closet. Mr. Rocha-Perez had been living in the couple's closet for over a month while having an affair with Mrs. Freeman.

10pm Sunday night Mr. Freeman heard snoring coming from a closet and found his wife's lover. He demanded that Rafael leave, confronted his wife, and then left for a walk. Upon his return he was assaulted by Rafael with a shotgun and ended up dying of his injuries. At midnight, Mrs. Freeman called her mother-in-law and told her that Jeff was sleeping and could not talk to her. Monday afternoon Martha went to a neighbor's house and asked them to call the police, who found Mr. Freeman dead.

Malkin Dons The Tin Hat

Michelle Malkin's latest column dives into the mind of Theresa Heinz-Kerry. It seems as if those evil Republicans stole the last election.
According to Ms. Kerry:

  • Two brothers were responsible for 80% of the voting machines and they are....."hard-right" republicans. So they hacked the vote from the machines (and made it close enough that Kerry got the most votes by a loser in US history)
  • Heinz bashes the Catholic Church for having the nerve to hold true to their faith and not support her husband from the pulpit.
  • She stated that people in West Virginia said Kerry was going to burn bibles.
"We have to develop a discipline for this party, so the people of this country know more clearly what it is to be a Democrat," - Theresa Heinz-Kerry
Five things needed to be a THK Democrat
1) Tin foil cap
2) Catchy slogan (must rhyme)
3) Acknowledgment of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy
4) Ignore Hillary's move to the right
5) Fox Blocker

John Kerry: Onion Reader

John Kerry (who once celebrated Chanuka in Cambodia) is crying foul over the 2004 election, again. James Taranto from OpinionJournal.com wonders if his latest cry of "trickery" at the polls on election day might have more fiction than fact, more satire than scoop. Kerry stated (without giving proof) that "Leaflets are handed out saying Democrats vote on Wednesday, Republicans vote on Tuesday".

Sorry Kerry, The Onion beat you to that story, Scrappleface beat The Onion. But don't hang your head in shame, even China has taken an Onion story as the truth.

Update: Al Franken beat everyone when he suggested this "trickery" in a comedy bit back in 2000
"If your friends say I'm voting for Bush, just remind them of the rule change. That Republicans get to vote on Wednesday, Nov. 8. Democrats vote on Tuesday and Republicans on Wednesday."
(Hat Tip - BOW)

I went out on the street to see what the people think of John Kerry's charges of "trickery". Here is what I found:
