Quote Of The Day

"Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity."
-- Martin Luther King Jr. (1929 - 1968)


On This Day In History

July 9, 1846 - U.S. Takes San Francisco
Shortly after the Mexican War began, U.S. Captain John Montgomery sailed his warship into San Francisco Bay, anchoring just off the settlement of Yerba Buena. On this day in 1846, Montgomery led a party of marines and sailors ashore. They met no resistance and claimed the settlement for the United States, raising the American flag in the central plaza. The following year, the Americans renamed the village San Francisco.

Surprisingly, Europeans did not discover the spectacular San Francisco Bay until 1769, although several explorers had sailed by it in earlier centuries. When Spanish explorers finally found the bay in that year, they immediately recognized its strategic value. In 1776, the Spanish built a military post on the tip of the San Francisco peninsula and founded the mission of San Francisco de Asis (the Spanish name for Saint Francis of Assisi) nearby. The most northern outpost of the Spanish, and later Mexican, empire in America, the tiny settlement remained relatively insignificant for several decades. However, the potential of the magnificent harbor did not escape the attention of other nations. In 1835, the British Captain William Richardson established a private settlement on the shore of Yerba Buena Cove, several miles to the east of the Mexican mission. That same year the U.S. government offered to purchase the bay, but the Mexicans declined to sell.

In retrospect, the Mexicans should have sold while they still had the chance. A little more than a decade later, a dispute between the U.S. and Mexico over western Texas led to war and the eventual annexation of California by the U.S. When the Mexicans formally ceded California to the United States in the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe, San Francisco was still a small town with perhaps 900 occupants. That same year, however, gold was discovered at the nearby Sutter's Fort. San Francisco became the gateway for a massive gold rush, and by 1852, the town was home to more than 36,000.


Editor's Note: Can we please give it back to Mexico? Pretty please?

2,000,000 BC

I've been considering this for some time and I think I finally have the answer. I've been pondering why the Liberals in this country hate George W. Bush so much and why they're practically on the point of self-explosion every time they think of him (which is almost every waking minute of every day). They have almost approached obsessive-compulsive behavior over Bush. Al Gore is a prime example. His every recent public speech starts out calm but before he gets two minutes into it he has evolved into the spitting, screaming, vein-bulging, Bush-bashing robot from hell. It's amazing to watch. Observe the protestors parading down our streets too. Their silly signs spout all kind of nonsense that they surely cannot believe - not if they are rational. They protest against Bush by getting naked in the park and taking pictures. Can anyone call this "normal"?

This behavior is abnormal and anti-social, to say the least. Conservatives, like myself, find ourselves in a quandary. If we fight back against these people with the same neurotic behavior, we stoop to their level. Plus, they accuse us of being "mean", the so-called "vast right-wing conspiracy" or calling us the "republican attack machine". If we ignore them and try to go about our business, they escalate their madness as though only they can "see the light" and we're ignoring them at our own peril. There seems to be no way to reason with them and their concept of a "common meeting ground" is for the rest of us to fall in step with their blathering idiocy and go along with their agenda.

Where and when did this mad behavior of theirs start? If you said after the 2000 election, you're wrong. After extensive archeological research on the matter, I think it started about 2 million years ago somewhere in Africa when caveman Agor decided that caveman Gobus was evil.

Gobus was better at hunting antelope because he was a strong man, a good hunter and he carefully stalked his prey. Agor was not as good a hunter because he was slightly near-sighted .... and lazy. While Agor hung back at the rear of the hunting party, whining about the midday heat and complaining that they were hunting on the wrong range, Gobus was carefully following the spoor of the antelope herd and carefully monitoring the wind to make sure the party stayed upwind of the prey. When the antelope herd was finally found and the hunting party prepared to attack, Agor complained that the antelope were beautiful creatures who should be spared and the hunting party should just go back to their caves and eat turnips .... or else the gods would be angry with them. Agor pointed to the sky where the sun was starting to set and proclaimed that the gods were already angry since they were taking the sun away again. He then turned and ran back to the communal caves and tried to stir up trouble with the womenfolk.

When the hunting party returned with piles of fresh meat, the tribe gathered around for the feast .... including Agor and his bastard son Kerr. Agor and Kerr helped themselves to the meat while everyone praised Gobus for another successful hunt. Gobus was a generous man and tried to make sure everyone was fed. The tribe loved him for this. Agor only ground his teeth in anger and yelled that Gobus was being too generous with his fellow hunters and that the tribe should share the food equally among everyone. Kerr agreed with his angry father at first but then changed his mind when he spotted another haunch of meat no one had taken.

What really stirred Agor's anger was the fact that Gobus was so well liked by the tribe. It never occurred to him that if he would just resolve his own issues and try to be more helpful, he might be more popular. He thought it was all Gobus' fault. It all started when the tribal elders decided to move the tribe away from Flada against Agor's wishes. He blamed Gobus for that and hated him ever since, finding any and every excuse to hurl accusations at Gobus .... which Gobus ignored. This only made Agor angrier and he infected Kerr's mind with his hatred. Things were coming to a boil in cavemanland.

Finally, one day the hunting party returned with plenty of meat but one of the hunters had been killed by a lion that slipped up on the hunting party just as they attacked the antelope. Agor was outraged and started screaming that Gobus had needlessly endangered the tribe by not working with the Fren tribe over in the next valley. He wailed that Gobus was greedy and instead of asking for help from the Fren he had caused the tribe to lose a good hunter. He claimed that Gobus lied when he took the party out that morning, that Gobus must have known lions would be out there. Agor started foaming at the mouth and dancing around, stripping off his loincloth and giggling insanely.

Gobus calmly watched him for a few moments then looked over to the elders who just nodded their heads. With a resigned sigh, Gobus walked over to the babbling Agor and bopped him on the head with his club, splitting his skull wide open. In the sudden silence, everyone could hear Kerr wail loudly for his lost father. Screaming hatred at Gobus, he ran off in the direction of the Fren tribe where he knew he would be welcome. Like him and his father Agor, they never bathed either.


So there you have it. Down through the years the Agor and Gobus DNA have continued to fight it out. Athens against Sparta. Rome against Carthage. England against Germany. France against France. And so on.

So you see it's all in the genes. Some of us want to be fed and happy and some of us are barking mad. Don't believe it? Look around you ....

What will environmentalists do now!

OH NO!!! Something worse and more evil than nasty cars spewing our emissions turns out to be...........................PEAT BOGS!!!

SCREAM!!!! EEEEEKK!!!!! OH, NO!! NOT peat bogs!

Yep, turns out they are spewing so much carbon dioxide into the atmosphere that it is now considered a threat in the global warming scare.

My question is this: what will the tree hugging enviro-weenies do now? Demand catalytic converters or CO2 scrubbers be placed over all bogs? Stupid fucks probably will. Or demand everything human do from now on produce ZERO emissions as Mother Earth, GAIA, is in the process of purging herself from all the collective damage they allege we nasty humans have done over the ages?

Maybe what should happen is those stupid moonbats should kill themselves off in order to decrease the human population and the resultant human-caused pollution.

What should we do?

Rumor and speculation abound that the marine who was reportedly captured and threatened with beheading may have set it up himself.

In other words, one great big hoax.

If this is true, what should we do once we have him again?

For all the grief he caused so many people, for all the resources he forced the military to use that took away from their mission in Iraq, for all the money he's cost in airing, producing, televising and broadcasting his "story" I think he should take a bullet to the neck.

What say you?

DNC Flip-Flops

In honor of John Kerry's position shifts on issues, the DNC is having trouble deciding which bloggers to invite to the Convention later this month. First, they notify the blogger he or she has been accepted then they tell them the next day that they have been rejected.

Bill, at INDC Journal got "the treatment" first. Then John Tobain got treated the same way.

Both of the bloggers above are conservative sites. Could this be a plot by the DNC to keep possible "unfriendly" bloggers away?

Either way, we here at BMEWS have absolutely no desire to set foot in Boston for the convention. I predict there will be so many Leftist Moonbats in the city during the convention that a new space-time continuum phenomenum could occur: a mental black-hole, wherein all rational thought is sucked into an enormous vortex from which no sane speech can escape. We've alerted Stephen Hawking to our theory.

The Poodle Visits Native Americans

During a campaign tour of the Apache Nation on Wednesday, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry said he had a plan to increase every Native American's income by $40,000 a year. However, Senator Kerry refused repeated requests for details of his plan.

He also told the Apaches that during his Senate career he has voted YES for every Indian issue ever introduced. Before his departure, the Apache Tribe presented the Presidential candidate a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, Running Eagle.

After Kerry left, tribal officials explained that Running Eagle is a bird so full of shit that it can't fly.

Conspiracy theorists---BEWARE!!!

The Breck Girl attended the "super secret" Bilderberg meeting earlier this year and his performance there sparked renewed interest in the Kerry camp resulting in his selection as VP candidate. So what does Edwards know and when did he know it?

My question is this: if this group is supposed to be meeting in order to promote a globalist agenda because national sovereignty is an antiquated concept with attendees being "movers and shakers" how did Edwards get invited? For that matter, Ralph Reed?

The Poodle and The Breck Girl

By now if you do not know that The Poodle selected The Breck Girl to be his running "mate" then you've been living in a cave.

Could it be that he did this so if the elections do go as he expects he'll have The Breck Girl handy to file a lawsuit? Maybe call in the UN to mediate or pass a resolution?

No matter. Hundreds of articles will be written about The Poodle's choice and hundreds more about The Breck Girl himself.

So here's my $.02's worth.

For most Republicans and Conservatives, this presents us with wonderful targets: You have two HUGELY rich millionaires campaigning and calling themselves the champions of the underprivileged!! That's a bit much. It's a joke really that anyone could ever fall for that. You also have The Poodle with his numerous flip flops on issues, the latest of which was his stance on abortion. He's against it but has never signed any bill along those lines. I read somewhere that if this were the 1860s era and Kerry was running against Lincoln with the discussion being slavery, then Kerry would say that as a Catholic he personally does not believe in it but he has to respect the rights and opinions of Protestants and other Christian voters who favor it.

Sorry, a guy that can't vote his convictions is a piece of shit as far as I am concerned.

Then he goes out on the stump talking about "values." VALUES?!?!?! From this fucktard?

Try some consistency, you asshole! That's something I value. But he can't do it. It is not his nature. He's a new age guy full of nuances. Hey, John! Stick your nuances up your ass!

One last thing: Kerry keeps saying he wants to eliminate Bush's tax cuts to the rich.

He is worth millions, his wife, anywhere between 800 million and a billion. Edwards is worth about 60 million. You think changing this law will affect them? HA!

Quote Of The Day

"The first half of our lives is ruined by our parents, and the second half by our children."
-- Clarence Darrow (1857 - 1938)


On This Day In History

July 8, 1853 - Commodore Perry Sails Into Tokyo Bay
Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry, representing the U.S. government, sails into Tokyo Bay, Japan, with a squadron of four vessels. For a time, Japanese officials refused to speak with Perry, but under threat of attack by the superior American ships they accepted letters from President Millard Fillmore, making the United States the first Western nation to establish relations with Japan since it had been declared closed to foreigners two centuries before. Only the Dutch and the Chinese were allowed to continue trade with Japan after 1639, but this trade was restricted and confined to the island of Dejima at Nagasaki.

After giving Japan time to consider the establishment of external relations, Commodore Perry returned to Tokyo with nine ships in March 1854. On March 31, he signed the Treaty of Kanagawa with the Japanese government, opening the ports of Shimoda and Hakodate to American trade and permitting the establishment of a U.S. consulate in Japan. In April 1860, the first Japanese diplomats to visit a foreign power in over 200 years reached Washington, D.C., and remained in the U.S. capital for several weeks, discussing expansion of trade with the United States. Treaties with other Western powers followed soon after, contributing to the collapse of the shogunate and ultimately the modernization of Japan.

Now You Know

According to "Encyclopedia Of The Middle Ages" by Norman F. Cantor, Viking Publishing, New York, NY 1999, the word "barbarian" originated in ancient Greece ....
The ancient Greeks thought that anyone who did not speak Greek was saying "ba-ba-ba", meaning nonsense. Hence the word barbarian for non-Greek-speaking foreigners -- inferior people, it was thought who live primitively without the benefits of civilization centered on Athens. The Romans, heir to Greek culture, adopted this concept, applying the term to inferior people principally congregated along the Rhine and Danube Rivers.
We would like everyone to take note that twenty-four centuries later, we still think people who spout nonsense are saying "ba-ba-ba". For this reason, we call them "Ba-Ba-Ba-rking Moonbats".

So if you find yourself surrounded by screaming and shouting "Ba-Ba-Ba-rking Moonbats" just look them dead in the eye and say to them, "ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba ......". If they still keep babbling nonsense, a #10 club to the side of the head will usually suffice to quiet the bastards.

This has been a public service message from the Ba-Ba-Ba-rking Moonbat Network. As you were.

Update!  Update!

Remember a few days ago I posted about how some traitorous Dummycrap pieces of shit had written the UN asking them to send observers to monitor our election this year?

Well, the UN turned it down saying the request had to come "from a national government or an electoral authority." I'm sure the verminous traitors were disappointed.

In this update article there is one fantastic quote by a member of GOPUSA.com

"Let me get this straight. A group of Democrats want to bring some people from countries like North Korea, Iran, Syria, China and Cuba – people that have never seen a democratic election in their lifetimes – to sit in judgment on our elections? What kind of voodoo politics is that? The last time a foreign body had any direct influence over the political process of this country, the situation was corrected by a war for our freedom from British rule. Are these so-called Americans so willing to surrender that hard-won right of self-determination now, and to such a shamelessly scandal-ridden group of anti-American dictatorships and terrorist sympathizers? We may as well dissolve the Union now and save ourselves the pain of watching it done for us."


You GO, Joe!!

As for the rats, a slow painful death would be too good for them but I am not in a position to administer it, even as Benevolent Dictator. I can only hope the people in the districts served by these moonbat fucktards kick them out on their asses at the next election.

DAMN IT!! I am still pissed off to think that our own elected officials would so casually turn over our election to a bunch of shitheels at the UN!!

DAMMIT!!! FUCK!! SHIT!!! HATE!!!

(there, I feel better now!)

Stupid is as stupid does

Numbnuts gets pissed off at girlfriend. Uses her email account to send a message to the White House threatening to blow it up and kill the President. Got caught. Got convicted. So far so good.

Bad news? He's a minor so once he's served his time his record will be clear. THAT'S a scary thought. I never did like that aspect of the juvenile law. Some crime records should NEVER be expunged. Underage drinking, small amounts of drugs, breaking some windows, that sort of crap, OK, get rid of it. Sex crimes, robberies, larcenies, rapes, murders, manslaughters, DWI, threatening a President, etc.--NEVER.

Health Crisis?

Is it just a failed memory or does anyone else remember the distortions behind these numbers mentioned by The Poodle (and soon to be echoed by his VP nominee, the Breck Girl.)

Lurch is saying there are 43 million Americans without health insurance. Think about that number---it is about 15% of our population.

I recall reading somewhere that these numbers are fallacious simply because they include:

--- people who are already covered under someone else's insurance

---people who have health plans but choose not to pay the premium because they'd rather spend their money on wide screen TVs and beer

---shitloads of young people who figure that rather than spend money on insurance bet on their own youth and health to keep them relatively safe. Hey, I remember when I was young I hardly EVER got sick. Ran a saw through one of my fingers once but that's about it. Hell, I still hardly ever catch a cold.

So here we go again, more lies and distortions from the party that made lying an art form.

If The Poodle and the Breck Girl get their way, their proposal will set us back a TRILLION dollars. Try to conceptualize a trillion dollars. Laid end to end it's 500 BILLION feet or 94,696,970 miles (farther than from here to the sun!)

Here's another way to look at it. Assuming we have 140 million people working in the US, that would cost EACH and EVERY ONE of us about $715 per year (no excuses, no exemptions, EVERYONE pays!) Are you ready for that? How about this? Are you ready for paying double that because The Poodle proposes tax credits for many people under his plan who he feels can least afford to pay.

Read this article Prepare to get terrified!

Just Say “No” To Michael Moore

Hold on. I'm about to start a shit storm here.

According to The Hill, the Federal Election Commission (FEC) could ban ads for Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9/11" after July 30. I believe they would be perfectly correct in doing so. Wait a minute .... I already hear the Moonbat Democrats howling from the rooftops that this is censorship. Wrong! It's the law.

The McCain-Feingold Campaign Finance Law prohibits corporate-funded ads that identify a federal candidate before a primary or general election. This part of the law was intended to restrict large corporations from freely giving their support to a political candidate without going through the process of donating money to a party or candidate, which is also controlled by the law. The whole law is intended to level the playing field and keep election advertising fair.

Is Moore's movie "advertising"? You bet. He makes no bones about the fact that he intends to impact this political election. So he has thrown together this muckadoo film that is partly fact and partly fiction with one purpose in mind: to defeat George W. Bush. He releases it the summer before the election in order to sway your vote. Plain and simple. Not to mention the fact that his ego gets a huge stroking and he stands to make a lot of money. It's advertising for his agenda.

What is advertising? It is simply a method of subtly controlling people's emotions through images and sound to influence them to buy a product. You know what I'm referring to. You are saturated with ads that try to scare you into thinking that your penis is too small or not hard enough, your vagina stinks, you car is not fancy enough, you don't have enough credit cards, your cat or dog is suffering malnutrition .... and the list goes on and on. Fear is the name of the game and they're playing on your emotions. It doesn't matter if you and your wife have sex twelve times a week, you still need viagra. Bullshit.

Fear and bullshit. Is that any way to help people decide who should lead the Free World? Not on your life.

Moore's movie and several others coming out this summer are just that - fear and bullshit, wrapped up as a "documentary" to influence your vote. It's bad enough that Moore is releasing his movie to influence your vote but I for one do not want to have to endure a constant barrage of ads for the movie.

The McCain-Feingold Law was passed in a bipartisan effort to clear the air during an election. All of these outside-sponsored fear/bullshit ads have to stop 60 days before the election. Sixty days is not long but it is something all voters need in order to allow them to step back, examine the candidates rationally, go over each party's positions and listen to the candidates debate. Sixty days to allow our emotions to rest and let us logically make up our minds who to vote for. Is that too much to ask for? Michael Moore and a few other Hollywood fucktards don't think you should be allowed to make a rational decision based on facts. They want to diddle with your emotions.

They tell you the war is going badly. According to the majority of our troops over in "the sandbox" things are getting better every day. Insurgents are being taken out and the handover to an interim Iraqi government is coming up next week.

They tell you the economy is trashed. According to government figures and corporate hiring records, the economy is booming, the stock market is at all time highs, interest rates are still low and the GDP is growing.

They tell you "Bush lied". They tell you the Patriot Act is an invasion of privacy. They tell you prisoners of war are being beaten and tortured. They tell you "Bush is Hitler". I'm surprised they haven't told us yet that "Bush is the Anti-Christ".

Does anyone out there remember the 1992 election? All we heard about was the "homeless" and how cruel the Republicans under Reagan and Bush, Sr. were. Hollywood went berserk, started "Comic Relief" to help all these poor "homeless" people that evil Republicans created. Does anyone know what happened to these "homeless" people? They seem to have disappeared after Clinton was elected. I wonder where they went to?

Gloom. Doom. Fear. Hatred. Anger. Lies. Bullshit. That is what they're selling. And they want you to buy it.

Just say "NO".
