Tim’s Predictions
by Lee

Tim Blair has posted his predictions for 2003.  Here’s a couple of my favorites.

June 19th The music video for Christina Aguilera’s latest release is banned after parents’ groups complain about its “inappropriate language” and “vulgar images”. Despite the ban, Cum Drunk Fuck Slut is the year’s best-selling single.

August 9th Speaking from a Saudi prison where he has been held captive and tortured daily since April, US President George W. Bush hails the Saudis as “trusted allies” in the war against terror.

Go read them all, he’s got some good ones in there.

Out With the Old…
by Lee

I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy New Year’s Eve tonight.  Drink all you want but take a taxi home.  Make sure you’re here to blog with me in 2003!  As for me, I’ll be drinking Crown Royal and setting off $700 worth of fireworks. :)

Fuck the Middle East
by Lee

I was going through my extensive MP3 collection earlier today, transferring some new tunes to my iPod, and I came across some old school metal from the late 80’s which, even though the song was written with tongue firmly in cheek, I think had some pretty damn prescient lyrics, considering the current geopolitical climate.  The song is Fuck the Middle East by Stormtroopers of Death (S.O.D.) from their brilliant 1988 album Speak English or Die.

Fuck the Middle East
There’s too many problems
They just get in the way
We could sure live without them
They hijack our planes
They raise our oil prices
We’ll kill em all and have a ball
And end their fuckin crisis

BEIRUT, LEBANON, won’t exist once we’re done
LIBYA, IRAN, we’ll flush those bastards down the can
SYRIANS and SHIITES, we’ll crush their faces with our might
Then Israel and Egypt can live in peace without these dicks.

Ranking Leo
by Lee

I just got back from seeing Catch Me If You Can, the new movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks.  This is a fantastic flick.  I read the book a year or so ago and thought the film was a great adaptation.  The other Leo flick out right now, Gangs of New York I have not yet seen, but Deb over at Insomnomaniac has an excellent review

And for those of you who have missed Deb’s brilliant comments in this post you need to get in there and start reading.  I haven’t been blogging as much as usual because (a) I’m still on vacation, and (b) Deb has been doing such a superb job in my stead.

Wanking for Saddam
by Lee

So I have been forced to disrupt my Christmas vacation once again to debunk the asinine ramblings of England’s cowardly Jew-hater, Roy McCoy.  For those of you just tuning in, start by reading this post, and then read this one plus the subsequent comments.  What follows is my response to Roy’s comments in the second post.

Proving My Point
by Lee

It seems that everyone’s favorite limey coward Roy McCoy has posted a lengthy screed in response to my post Pansies Across the Pond.  I figured that this was worth a post all on its own.  (Make sure you read the whole thing, there’s a nifty little surprise at the end.)

Fucking Hell - What A Wanker!

Congratulations, with this quote you’ve just made the Hate Mail section on the front page.

You’re an offensive git aren’t you? So I have responded in like manner.

Please do.  Unlike you I can take it.

If you think I was referring solely to you, you are mistaken there are many more idiots like you unfortunately.

There are most definitely more like me, and you better be thankful that we’re here.  Here’s what John Stuart Mill had to say on the subject.

“War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth fighting for is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares about more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

Miserable creatures such as yourself will always be kept free due to the exertions of men and women who answer the call of duty to fight against evil, no matter what its form.

Pansies Across the Pond
by Lee

While perusing the server logs a minute ago I noticed a referral from a site I had never heard of before.  Intrigued, I checked it out.  It’s from some British dude named Roy McCoy who writes a blog called A Man In the Street, and apparently the poor bastard has taken issue with some of the content of this blog.  His post entitled Lions are Pussies Too! is deconstructed forthwith.

The Boys from Brazil
by Lee

If you’ve never seen the film The Boys from Brazil you need to head down to your local Blockbuster.  It might not be Nazis trying to recreate Hitler, but it appears that a bunch of goofy assholes from the Raelian UFO cult have cloned a human being.

A BABY has been born through cloning, French scientist and member of the Raelian sect Brigitte Boisselier has claimed.

The baby, a girl, was born on Thursday by caesarean section. The birth “went very well,” said Boisselier, president of the human cloning society Clonaid, on the telephone.

As the effort by the Raelians to achieve the first human birth by cloning was carried out in the secrecy, it was not immediately possible to obtain any independent scientific confirmation that the baby was in fact a clone.

The baby born yesterday was the first of five the Raelians have said were due.

I’m not sure that I’m necessarily against the idea of human cloning, but jumping into it helter skelter is just the wrong way to approach it. Pandora’s Box has been opened and God only knows what is going to come out.

Fisking My Representative
by Lee

So in between family activities and bouts of heavy drinking I decided to check all five of my email accounts, and lo and behold there was a letter from Lynn Woolsey, the left wing dunce who represents my disctict in the House of Representatives.  The letter was a reply to one I had ostensibly sent her urging her to support President Bush in his plans for Iraq.  The only problem is that I never sent her such a letter.  I do remember filling out something on Vote.com a while back, whish said that the votes would be forwarded to our respective members of Congress.  That must be where it came from.  Knowing the kind of left-wing intellectual midget Lynn Woolsey is I wouldn’t have bothered to write her at all.  At any rate, the letter she sent me is, if nothing else, worthy of a good dissection.  Here it is, verbatim, with my commentary.

Dead as Vince Foster
by Lee

The ever reclusive completely dead Osama bin Laden has apparently sent a message of goodwill to Algerian rebels.

Three members of al Qaeda delivered a message this month from Osama bin Laden to a leading Algerian Islamic rebel believed to be in neighboring Niger, news reports said on Thursday.

The three emissaries, all Saudi nationals, traveled through Syria and Egypt and met Mokhtar Belmokhtar, a regional leader of Algeria’s Islamic rebel Salafist Group for Preaching and Combat.

The daily L’Expression, quoting reliable sources, did not say what the content of Bin Laden’s reported message was.

They didn’t even spring for an audio tape this time.  I don’t know what kind of bullshit stunt our government is trying to pull but bin Laden is dead.  He couldn’t be any deader if Hillary Clinton had murdered him, then stuck his body in a park and staged it to look like a suicide.

What We’re Made Of… Literally
by Lee

If anything truly exemplifies what this country is made of this Christmas season it’s this story.  As a former sailor in the United States Navy I would be honored to serve on this vessel. 

Steel salvaged from the wreckage of the World Trade Center will be used to build the Navy’s USS New York, a warship named in honor of those who perished in New York on Sept. 11, 2001.

The scrap steel will be extricated from the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island on Friday and trucked south to a Northrop Grumman shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss. Northrop Grumman will start building the USS New York in Pascagoula in the middle of next year.

The USS New York will be the fifth of 12 amphibious assault ships in the San Antonio class, which the Navy calls one of its most technologically innovative. The 684-foot vessel will carry a Navy crew of 402 and up to 800 Marines.

The $800 million vessel should be ready for active duty in 2007.

Not to be outdone the Iraqi government has stated that it will recycle the rubble from its bombed out buildings into stones to be thrown at the tanks and artillery of the Great Satan

Spicoli, The Useful Idiot
by Lee

I wasn’t planning on blogging again.  I’ve been making cookies and rum balls with my mom, and the house is full of the smells of baking yummies, but this is just too damn good to pass up.  Clifford May has a wonderful piece on Baghdad Sean Penn, and how he is nothing but a dupe for Saddam Hussein.

How can Sean Penn be so naive as to believe he would see the reality of Iraq touring around Baghdad by limo and dining on kabobs with Saddam’s deputies? Does he really believe that average Iraqi citizens were going to invite him into their living rooms and share their feelings with him? Did he expect Saddam to open his dungeons to show him the political prisoners whose tongues have been sliced and whose eyes have been gouged? Did he think he’d have more luck finding caches of biological and chemical weapons than has Hans Blix?

Mr. Penn also told CNN: “The insight that I would have and I think for it to be productive, I would hope that this would not be a political commentary on my part but more a human commentary.” To which one can only respond: “Whaaa???”

If Mr. Penn & Co. were serious about grasping Iraqi reality, they would meet with those who have fled Saddam’s oppression to London and Washington and, yes, probably to Los Angeles. They would visit the Kurdish areas in northern Iraq, protected from Saddam troops by U.S. and British air power. They would learn about the 182,000 Kurds who were slaughtered by Saddam, about the villages wiped out by poison gas, women and children lying in the gutter in a final embrace.

In other words, if Sean Penn and other Hollywood types really want to see what life under Saddam Hussein is like and the kind of danger he represents to the people of Iraq, the Middle East and the world, Baghdad is the last place they should go.

Read the whole thing, it’s great.  Sean Penn is a fool and a dupe.  He’s much more Spicoli than he’d ever want to admit.

For the Little Ones
by Lee

If you’ve got small children in the house, you might want to show them this.  NORAD is using its powerful ICBM-monitoring radar technology to keep track of exactly where Santa is during his trip around the world.  It’s very well done.  If you’re got little ones running around you should show this to them.
