Ménage à Trois

imageimageFirst Trio “Married” in The Netherlands
(brusselsjournal)

The Netherlands and Belgium were the first countries to give full marriage rights to homosexuals. In the United States some politicians propose “civil unions” that give homosexual couples the full benefits and responsibilities of marriage. These civil unions differ from marriage only in name.

Meanwhile in the Netherlands polygamy has been legalised in all but name. Last Friday the first civil union of three partners was registered. Victor de Bruijn (46) from Roosendaal “married” both Bianca (31) and Mirjam (35) in a ceremony before a notary who duly registered their civil union.

“I love both Bianca and Mirjam, so I am marrying them both,” Victor said. He had previously been married to Bianca. Two and a half years ago they met Mirjam Geven through an internet chatbox. Eight weeks later Mirjam deserted her husband and came to live with Victor and Bianca. After Mirjam’s divorce the threesome decided to marry.

Victor: “A marriage between three persons is not possible in the Netherlands, but a civil union is. We went to the notary in our marriage costume and exchanged rings. We consider this to be just an ordinary marriage.”

Asked by journalists to tell the secret of their peculiar relationship, Victor explained that there is no jealousy between them. “But this is because Mirjam and Bianca are bisexual. I think that with two heterosexual women it would be more difficult.” Victor stressed, however, that he is “a one hundred per cent heterosexual” and that a fourth person will not be allowed into the “marriage.” They want to take their marriage obligations seriously: “to be honest and open with each other and not philander.”

Victor looks pretty satisfied with himself.  Wait until they both want to do something.....different....and he has to choose.  LOL

A Psycho, An Ambulance and a Deer

Police Find Missing Fla. Man Driving Dead Deer In Ambulance
Local6

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.—A man reported missing from a Florida hospital was found in North Carolina dressed like a doctor and driving a stolen ambulance with a dead deer wedged in the back, authorities said.

Leon Holliman Jr., 37, was reported missing from a River Region Human Services facility in Jacksonville last month.

The North Carolina State Highway Patrol found him driving the ambulance with the deer on Sunday.

“I don’t know how the man got it up in there,” said Sgt. Robert Pearson. “It was a six point buck.”

It wasn’t known where Holliman got the deer, which had been dead for some time, Pearson said.

Authorities tracked the stolen ambulance through three rural North Carolina counties and one county in southern Virginia before its tires were punctured and it wound up in a ditch, Pearson said.

Holliman was admitted to a North Carolina hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. Police said they would decide whether to charge Holliman after that evaluation is complete.

I’m not sure what I could add to this story, except . crazy

Confirmed

Now the real war begins in the Senate. You can expect Dummycraps to pitch a hissy-fit no matter who Bush nominates to replace Sandra Day O’Connor. I predict the next nominee will be grilled mercilessly and the hearings will drag out for months. The final result: Dummycraps will filibuster and Republicans will be forced to use the “nuclear option” to over-ride them. I also predict that Howard Dean will make an ass out of himself, George Soros and MoveOn.org will spend billions and John Kerry will babble his usual useless bullshit to gain camera time for the news. Oh .... almost forgot .... I also predict the MSM and Hollywood will be making so much racket over the next few months that we’ll all be deaf by New Years.

imageimageSenate Confirms Roberts As Chief Justice
WASHINGTON (AP)

John Glover Roberts Jr. won confirmation as the 17th chief justice of the United States Thursday, overwhelmingly approved by the Senate as the jurist to lead the Supreme Court through turbulent social issues for generations to come. The Senate voted 78-22 to confirm Roberts - a 50-year-old U.S. Appeals judge from the Washington suburb of Chevy Chase, Md. - as the successor to the late William H. Rehnquist, who died earlier this month.

All of the Senate’s majority Republicans, and about half of the Democrats, voted for Roberts. Underscoring the rarity of a chief justice’s confirmation, senators answered the roll by standing one by one at their desks as their names were called, instead of voting and leaving the chamber. Roberts is the first new Supreme Court justice since 1994. Before becoming a federal judge, Roberts was one of the nation’s best appellate lawyers, arguing 39 cases - many in front of the same eight justices he will now lead as chief justice.

He won 25 of those cases. Roberts watched the Senate vote on television from the White House’s Roosevelt Room. He and his wife Jane, were to have lunch with President Bush and first lady Laura Bush, followed by a swearing-in ceremony with the president at the White House, so Roberts could take his seat in time for the new court session Monday. Justice John Paul Stevens was administering the oath. Under Roberts, justices will tackle issues like assisted suicide, campaign finance law and abortion this year, with questions about religion, same-sex marriage, the government’s war on terrorism and human cloning looming in the future.

“With the confirmation of John Roberts, the Supreme Court will embark upon a new era in its history, the Roberts era,” said Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., whose 55 GOP members unanimously voted for the multimillionaire judge. “And for many years to come, long after many of us have left public service, the Roberts court will be deliberating on some of the most difficult and fundamental questions of U.S. law.”

Twenty-two Democrats opposed Roberts, saying he could turn out to be as conservative as justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, the Supreme Court anchors on the right. “At the end of the day, I have too many unanswered questions about the nominee to justify confirming him to this lifetime seat,” said Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid of Nevada. Anti-abortion and abortion rights activists both have their hopes pinned on Roberts, a former government lawyer in the Reagan and first Bush administrations. While Roberts is solidly conservative and his wife, Jane, volunteers for Feminists for Life, both sides were eager to see how he will vote on abortion cases.

Roberts told senators during his Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearings that past Supreme Court rulings carry weight, including the Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion in 1973. He also said he agreed with the 1965 Supreme Court ruling in Griswold v. Connecticut that established the right of privacy in the sale and use of contraceptives. But he tempered that by saying Supreme Court justices can overturn rulings. During four days of sometimes testy questioning by Democrats, Roberts refused to hint how he would rule on cases.

Riddle Me This

I’m currently suffering from an intestinal infection and am stoked up on antibiotics and pain-killers. It’s been gradually wearing me down for the last few days and I finally gave up and saw my doc yesterday. It’ll get better now that I’m taking care of it. I plan to spend a lot of time today sleeping under the influence of good drugs (legal, prescribed ones that is). For your amusement, I present the picture below. Your job is to guess what it is. This is an Open Forum Post so feel free to discuss whatever comes to your mind. I will leave it to Oink to direct traffic ....

Well, I’ll be

The FBI has released it’s ”Uniform Crime Reports” for 2004. You know, the year that the evil Assault Weapons Ban was expired.  Remember how we were told by the like of Barbara *spit* Boxer and her ilk that there would be pitched battles in the streets?  Remember how we were told that every minor traffic altercation would end in death for someone?  Hmmmmm.

This is the table that shows, in total, the percentage change in various crimes compared to the last report:

Population
Group
Number of
Agencies
PopulationViolent
Crime
MurderForcible
Rape
RobberyAggravated
Assault
Total12,715258,000,968-1.7-3.6-0.3-3.6-0.8


A 3.6% drop in both murder and robbery. [scratching head] What could be the cause of that?

Rematch

imageimage DAN RATHER WANTS SECOND GO AT BUSH
(NEW YORK POST)

Dan Rather wants to reopen the investigation into President Bush and the National Guard story that resulted in the Memogate scandal and led to his early departure from the anchor desk but his bosses at CBS have forbidden him to go back at it, he said.

“CBS News doesn’t want me to do that story,” Rather said during an interview that aired on C-SPAN Monday night. “They wouldn’t let me do that story,” he said during the shockingly frank interview with former NBC newsman Marvin Kalb. Rather continues to insist that the story was correct and suggested in the interview that he and the network may have been set up by some outsider.

“There are some strange, and to me, still mysterious things,” he said. “Certainly unexplained things that happened about how it got attacked and why, even before the program was over,” Rather said. The report, delivered by Rather last September, was discredited two weeks later after drawing fire, first from politically conservative Web logs and later from mainstream media who reported that the “60 Minutes 2” story was based on forged documents. Rather retired from the “CBS Evening News” last spring. Some, including CBS chief Les Moonves, have suggested that Rather might have stayed on for at least another year had he not been embroiled in the scandal.

“I believed in the story,” Rather said. “The facts of the story were correct. One supporting pillar of the story, albeit an important one, one supporting pillar was brought into question,” he said. “To this day, no one has proven whether it was what it purported to be or not.”

I compare Dan Rather to a bad case of syphilis (thankfully, a disease I’ve never had). He just comes and goes in stages, always making a bloody nuisance out of himself and totally screwing up things for everyone like a pus-filled growth. Like syphilis, Dan is in the final stages as evidenced by the total brain rot that is beginning to set in. Is there no cure for this disease? Can’t we just inject him with some new miracle drug that hopefully will return the man’s brain to reality or would we be better served to just quarantine his butt into a nice retirement home in North Korea perhaps? Personally, I opt for the latter solution. Dear Dan and Dear Leader have a lot in common ... neither one has a functioning brain and both have delusions of grandeur and schizophrenic tendencies.

.... and yes, I know the picture above is upside-down. It is the only way I can look at Danny Boy these days without tossing my cookies. He is an STD ... Stoopid Transmitted Disease and I don’t want to get infected. Now go wash your eyes before reading the other posts below ...

Kennedy Offers Assistance

Plugging The Dyke

Shocked by the widespread suffering of those displaced from their homes by the flooding in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina, Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) offered to plug one of the holes in the Lake Pontchartrain levee with his own ample body.

“The Bush Administration had failed to stem the tide of this cataclysm,” said Kennedy. “I have had some experience with aquatic mishaps. This experience will bolster me in the hours of desperation had I plugged one of the leaks myself.”

Kennedy had arranged to have the Air Force transport him by helicopter and lower him into the easternmost breach in the levee. The hope was that the senator’s doughy frame be pliable enough to conform to the hole’s dimensions and halt or, at least slow, the flow of water from the lake into the city.

President Bush praised Senator Kennedy’s decision. “I think it’s mighty big of him to offer so much for the good of the country,” said Bush. “There aren’t many who could fill such a large role in this disaster.”

Democrats And Buses

Free Republic has an excellent post about buses in New Orleans and how the Democrats use them and how they don’t use them. Good read ....

Flashback to 1996: A Day When Buses Were Used in New Orleans
Baton Rouge Advocate | Nov. 10, 1996

NEW ORLEANS - Red beans, parades and a thousand people all were part of the push that got nearly 186,000 voters to New Orleans polls on Election Day and gave Democrat Mary Landrieu a U.S. Senate victory. Republican Louis “Woody” Jenkins has refused to concede defeat to Landrieu, who had an unofficial 5,899-vote lead after voting machines were opened Friday. The statewide tally released by the secretary of state on Friday was Landrieu 853,076, Jenkins 847,177, the closest Senate election in Louisiana history. Campaign manager Tony Perkins said volunteers will be working all weekend, checking out hundreds of complaints - especially in New Orleans, where Landrieu led Jenkins 143,050 to 42,653.

Bob Tucker, a businessman and close advisor to New Orleans Mayor Marc Morial, said it was Morial’s get-out-the-vote teams that won the day for Landrieu, President Clinton and Orleans Parish Leader Harry Connick. “All elections begin and end in the streets on election day. That’s where the Clinton, Landrieu and Connick team won Tuesday,” Tucker said. For instance, when the management team got word at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday that a GOP tracking poll showed Jenkins ahead, it was time for an instant parade. “Within 45 minutes, we arranged a motorcade,” Tucker said. “We found Mary and Marc, got school buses for workers and sound trucks with music and put on a parade to flush out our voters.” Landrieu and Morial waved from campaign manager Norma Jane Sabiston’s convertible.

“We moved them into the major housing project areas blowing horns and playing New Orleans music,” Tucker said. “We were doing what we do best in New Orleans, having a parade.” There were more parades in key areas during “surge time” - late afternoon and evening, when people get off work. Tucker’s teams tracked the turnout all day in target precincts. If the vote was slow compared to past elections, some of the 1,000 street workers were sent there to knock on doors and ask people to vote. A phone bank worked all day, asking voters to go to the polls.

The street workers were divided into two groups of 500 -one for the morning, and one for the afternoon. Those were split into four groups: One to work polling places; one to wave signs at intersections; one to go door-to-door; and one to go to shopping centers and employment centers. The one time all were together was at lunch, when all 1,000 got a lunch of red beans and rice.

Now you know. When Dummycraps in New Orleans need votes, the school buses run. When the city is flooding and the people who voted for them are drowning or starving, the buses stayed parked. End of lesson.

Why Me?

I just received this picture in an e-mail from an anonymous source (anonymouse@gmail.com - whoever that is). What I want to know is who sent it and why? What kind of ignorant Moonbat would dare clutter up the internet (much less my InBox) with this ... this ... this ... whatever! Somebody out there has some real explaining to do. I only hope it wasn’t Oink behind this ... this ... this ... AARRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHHHHH, MY EYES!
