Dumb Idea Of The Week

Not all Democrats are idiots. Take Joe Lieberman for example. By the same token, not all idiots are Democrats. Republicans have their share too. I won’t name any names but this fellow below definitely deserves honorable mention for the most idiotic idea of modern times.

Speaking of modern times, for someone to even espouse such a notion as using textbooks as shields durnig school shootings speaks volumes about our society. Personally, if I’m being attacked by a madman with a gun I’d prefer to have my H&K USP 45 handy ... with an extra clip, just in case the bastard’s still wiggling after twelve rounds of .45 ACP. Shovel some dirt over the corpse and walk away quietly. Don’t ask, don’t tell.

In lieu of having overwhelming firepower handy, I guess I’ll take my stand behind a copy of “War & Peace”, Tolstoy’s agonizingly looooong (1474 pages - hardcover) account of the War Of 1812 ... with a quarter inch of kevlar between pages 736 and 737. And when the shooter runs out of bullets I can bludgeon him to death with the book. And they all lived happily ever after. The end.

Candidate Seeks Textbooks As Shields
OKLAHOMA (FORBES) - 10.19.2006, 10:08 PM

imageimageA candidate for state superintendent of schools said Thursday he wants thick used textbooks placed under every student’s desk so they can use them for self-defense during school shootings.

“People might think it’s kind of weird, crazy,” said Republican Bill Crozier of Union City, a teacher and former Air Force security officer. “It is a practical thing; it’s something you can do. It might be a way to deflect those bullets until police go there.”

Crozier and a group of aides produced a 10-minute video Tuesday in which they shoot math, language and telephone books with a variety of weapons, including an AK-47 assault rifle and a 9mm pistol.

The rifle bullet penetrated two books, including a calculus textbook, but the pistol bullet was stopped by a single book. Crozier said the demonstration shows that a student could effectively use a textbook as protection in a school shooting.

An Oklahoma Highway Patrol spokesman was skeptical. “He probably needs to take a look at some ballistics tests,” Lt. Pete Norwood said. “There are some rifles not even Webster’s Dictionary will stop.”

Crozier said he got the idea after the April 1999 shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo. The idea gained momentum after a December 1999 school shooting in Fort Gibson when a 13-year-old boy wounded five fellow students. Crozier noted that a bullet lodged in books in one student’s backpack.

“You don’t know where they’re going to happen. You don’t know when they’re going to happen. There ought to be some kind of plan to react to it,” Crozier said.

Crozier faces incumbent Sandy Garrett, a Democrat, in the Nov. 7 general election. A spokeswoman for Garrett’s campaign, Kimberly Hawkins Sanders, said Garrett had no comment on Crozier’s idea.

Barking Moonbat Of The Week

Who Else?

imageimage
(CTV) - October 20, 2006 —North Korean leader Kim Jong Il apologized Friday for his country’s Oct. 9 nuclear test and said there won’t be any more, South Korean newspapers reported.

Citing a diplomatic source in China, South Korea’s Chosun Ilbo daily reported that Kim told his Chinese visitors “he is sorry about the nuclear test” and told them that Pyongyang had no plans for additional blasts.

The enigmatic North Korean leader suggested Friday that international diplomatic talks might be possible if the U.S. pulled back on pressure for economic sanctions. The UN Security Council resolution adopted in response to North Korea’s nuclear test has put a stranglehold on the country’s access to foreign banks.

Kim’s new-found penitence is for foreign audiences only, however. According to a report from the North’s official Korean Central News Agency, Choe Thae Bok, secretary of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea, told a rally of more than 100,000 people Friday that “No matter how the U.S. imperialists try to stifle and isolate our republic ... victory will be on the side of justice.”

North Korea has typically encouraged its citizens to blame their desperate living conditions on forces outside their country, particularly the United States.

Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day

I’m sorry but this latest act of idiocy from Hollywood and the entertainment industry takes the cake. I don’t approve of pirating music or movies but I’ve thought for some time that the greedy entertainment industry moguls need to get a clue. Instead of asking why people are pirating and trying to reach a compromise, they have been taking the heavy-handed approach of filing hundreds of thousands of lawsuits ... mostly against kids.

Most pirating is done in other countries anyway but they fight it by offering cheaper prices to customers overseas (as little as $2 for a DVD in China) and taking little Johnny in Iowa to court for $15,000 in damages. What’s wrong with that picture?

Why not just rethink their pricing strategy? Could movie theatre attendance be down due to ridiculously high ticket prices? How many people want to go spend two hours in a crowded theatre for $10 and watch a lousy movie? Why do DVD’s have to cost on average about $20 each?

The computer software industry went through this in the 1980’s when Microsoft Word cost over $500 and you had to save up for months to buy Lotus 1-2-3. Hackers were pirating software all over the place. Software companies wised up and cut prices, making up the difference in more sales. Software piracy dropped off almost immediately. There are still some who do it but it’s not nearly as bad as it used to be.

Movie makers and music producers are now facing the same delimma and they are responding with lawsuits, threats and now ... brainwashing Boy Scouts as told in the story below. Instead of working with their target audience they are demanding a set price for their goods.

The old adage about “charging what the market will bear” holds true still. Maybe pirates aren’t the only ones at fault here. Maybe the products are overpriced and of such low quality that a new pricing strategy needs to be worked out. It’s called “bargaining”, something buyers and sellers have been doing for thousands of years.

I can remember when everyone had huge record collections and movie theatres were packed. Back in those days you could buy a 45 RPM single for 75¢, an album cost less than $5 and movie tickets were 50¢ or less.  On top of that, the music was much better and movies were worth watching.

Be Loyal, Kind and Don’t Steal Movies
LOS ANGELES (AP) - October 21, 2006, 5:00 AM EDT

imageimageA Boy Scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, etc., etc. He is also respectful of copyrights. Boy Scouts in the Los Angeles area will now be able to earn an activity patch for learning about the evils of downloading pirated movies and music.

The patch shows a film reel, a music CD and the international copyright symbol, a “C” enclosed in a circle. The movie industry has developed the curriculum.

“Working with the Boy Scouts of Los Angeles, we have a real opportunity to educate a new generation about how movies are made, why they are valuable, and hopefully change attitudes about intellectual property theft,” Dan Glickman, chairman of the Motion Picture Association of America, said in a statement Friday.

Scouts will be instructed in the basics of copyright law and learn how to identify five types of copyrighted works and three ways copyrighted materials may be stolen.

Scouts also must choose one activity from a list that includes visiting a movie studio to see how many people can be harmed by film piracy. They also can create public service announcements urging others not to steal movies or music.

Many of the Scouts in the Los Angeles area come from families whose members are somehow connected to the region’s sprawling entertainment industry, said Victor Zuniga, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Area Council.

The program is being introduced to the 52,000 Scouts in the Los Angeles area, with plans to offer it to other California councils early next year. The program will reach Scouts ages 6 to 21.

Unlike a merit badge, an activity patch is not required to advance in the Scouts. Instead, they are awarded for various recreational and educational activities, such as conservation or volunteering at a food bank.

The World Serious

By the way, in case you missed it, the baseball team here in St. Louis won a ballgame last night. Everyone in town is all excited for some reason. Meanwhile in New York, baseball fans are strangely quiet for this time of year. I shall have to investigate and get back to you ....

Seriously, the World Serious starts with Game One on FOX at 7:30pm ET this Saturday. The St. Louis Cardinals travel to Motor City to take on the Detroit Tigers. For those baseball enthusiasts out there here is your trivia for today:

Politically Incorrect Bathrooms?

OK, help me out here. I don’t see what the big deal is. I’ve seen pictures of much worse, politically incorrect urinals. It’s a joke, OK? People are always coming up with ideas to keep us doofus guys from spraying down the whole bathroom. Things like this improve aim ... not to mention hand-to-eye coordination. Plus it gives us upstanding urinators something to think about besides the creepy tile wall in front if us.

The comments from the ladies protesting these “objets d’arte” are creeping me out too. They’re a wee bit too strident and angry to suit me. I’m tempted to just say ‘P--s on them’ and their stupid opinions but that would only p--s them off and I’d be thrown into Male Chauvinist Prison prior to the lynching for crimes against femininity.

Now if it were up to me I’d go after the real problem with urinals ... we need to find out who keeps leaving those big white mints in them ....

Austrian Removes ‘Sexist’ Urinals
VIENNA, Austria (AP) - October 19, 2006, 6:18 PM EDT

imageimageAn Austrian businessman announced Thursday that he would get rid of urinals shaped like a woman’s mouth from a public toilet near Vienna’s national opera, after facing pressure from politicians who demanded their removal.

The urinals, which are located in the “Opera Toilet,” a lavishly decorated public restroom, feature thick, lipsticked lips, a set of teeth and a bright red tongue. “We think that it’s tasteless, misogynistic and offensive,” Marianne Lackner, media spokeswoman for the Vienna Department of Women’s Affairs told The Associated Press.

The department, headed by Social Democrat Sonja Wehsely, said it was appealing to the owner’s good will, but was also exploring the possibility of legal action. Monika Vana, the Green Party’s spokeswoman for women’s affairs, also denounced the toilets, telling the Austria Press Agency that they are “sexist and inappropriate.”

“The owner thinks the idea (of the urinal) is funny,” Lackner said, adding that it seemed he was not prepared for the hostile reactions. Neuhold Gerhard, owner of the toilet’s operator Neuhold Gerhard Limited, said in an interview Thursday with Austrian public radio that he would remove the urinals.

“If there is such outrage in Austria then it’s not a problem,” he said. “We will remove them in the next 14 days.” Gerhard added that he thought it odd that public interest has only now been focused on the urinals, as they have been around for three years.

The urinals first made a splash during recent campaigns for national elections, as they were the only facility available near Austria’s National Opera. “The thing that surprises us the most,” Lackner said, “is that no man has ever said anything about this.”

Gay Activists

It’s time for your weekend food for thought from Michael Reagan. Michael looks at the new breed of “professional homosexuals”, also known as “gay hit men”, who devote their life to outing conservative politicians. Not surprisingly, Michael observes that the majority of homosexuals want nothing to do with these idiots.

Unfortunately, we have these blathering idiots on one side screaming at us to promote the homosexual agenda and on the other side we have radical Muslims who want to behead all homosexuals. Ain’t it just lovely being caught in the middle ... ?

The Outing Game
- by Michael Reagan

imageimageMike Rogers is a scandalmonger who calls himself a “Gay activist blogger” devoted to “outing” alleged closet-gay Republicans. He claims that his sleazy activism is justified because it reveals the alleged hypocrisy of Republican homosexuals who refuse to promote what he insists is the real gay agenda.

Last week his target was Republican Congressman David Dreier. His latest target is Idaho Senator Larry Craig who he charged has engaged in homosexual sex with at least four men – a charge the senator vehemently denies.

Significantly, he refuses to identify his alleged sources for the accusation, surrendering by his refusal any claim to credibility. Rogers says that digging into the private lives of politicians who support anti-gay legislation is perfectly legitimate, adding because the senator both supported and voted for the Defense of Marriage act, he has a perfect right to out him.

Rogers is one of the so-called gay activists who is going on nationally syndicated radio shows and writing newspaper columns to punish what he believes are gay Republicans for not agreeing with the liberal agenda of gay marriage or whatever the else the gay issue of the day is.

He’s outing all of these targets, not caring who he hurts, simply because they don’t agree with the radical gay agenda. There is no outrage from the Democrats or the media that there is somebody out there punishing conservatives who don’t agree with the liberal gay agenda.

They don’t understand that conservatives don’t look first at people’s sexuality. They look at a person as a whole person. There are people however, who have been described by a gay Republican talk show host as “professional homosexuals”—people who see nothing else but a person’s sexual orientation.

When they get up in the morning and look in the mirror all they see is a homosexual. They see absolutely nothing else about themselves or their lives. Yet just as the radical Muslims have taken over the Muslim faith, these professional gays are putting themselves forth as spokesmen for the entire gay community and being accepted as such by the liberal media.

They are not. The majority of gays want nothing to do with Rogers and his fellow professional homosexuals. I know a lot of gays who live in California. Most of them are not supportive of gay marriage. Most gays are not supportive of the radical gay issue of punishing the Boy Scouts because they won’t allow homosexuals to be scoutmasters.

These are the issues that the activists are pushing. Most gays are embarrassed by the gay activists but they can’t say anything since they will be ostracized within their own community, just as a black who is conservative is ostracized within the black community.

If a gay speaks out against the radical gay agenda he will be driven out of the gay community, and that includes speaking out against the professional homosexuals who pretend to represent the entire gay community and are accepted as such by the lamestream media.

We are now seeing the outrageous practice of liberal radio talk show hosts allowing radical gays to go on their shows and broadcast their slimy messages, identifying as closet gays conservative Republicans who will not kowtow to them and their demands that they support what Rogers and his ilk claim is the only legitimate agenda for homosexuals.

Rogers may claim his aim is to advance his cause, but it is nothing more than his method of punishing those who disagree with him. He’s telling his targets, “Do what I demand or I’ll expose you to ridicule.”

I don’t care if a Republican politician is gay. What I care about is his agenda. Is it a conservative agenda or a liberal agenda? I vote for those who support my conservative views.

Liberals take it as an article of faith that conservatives hate gays. That’s absolutely untrue. What we don’t support is the radical gay agenda. We are utterly opposed to gay marriage, homosexual scoutmasters or promoting the gay lifestyle in our schools.

And, as I said, most gays agree with me and not with Rogers on these issues.

Wanted: Dead Or Alive

You can run away owing money to your favorite loan shark and possibly get away with it. You can rob The Godfathather, run away and maybe get away with it. Heck, you can probably even steal money from Al-Qaeda and get away with it. But owe the IRS money and dude ... you’re toast.

I oughta know. I made a small “mistake” in my 2000 and 2001 returns and the IRS calmly informed me that I owed them $10,000 in back taxes. This was in a letter I received from them in 2005 that had followed me as I worked six different contracts in five different states. Oh, yes. They found me and I wound up paying over $15,000 before it was over with due to penalties.

Death just waits patiently for you to come to him. The IRS isn’t that nice. They ain’t waitin’ fer squat. They will hunt you down and skin you alive. Trust me. Wesly Snipes is in deep kimchi. Almost as deep as Willie Nelson got into with the “revenooers” recently.

With millions of dollars at stake, the feds and their new lackeys (third-party collection agencies) will pursue Snipes to the ends of the Earth and beyond. Even now they are probably commandeering military satellites to quarantine Earth to keep Snipes from escaping to Mars. You think I’m kidding? Guess again.

So say hello to Wesly Snipes, the new “Running Man”. All we need is Richard Dawson on TV calling the play-by-play as the IRS closes in on their prey with blasters drawn and subpoenas extended. RUN, Running Man! RUN!

Feds Indict Actor Wesley Snipes for Tax Fraud
WASHINGTON (LA TIMES) - 12:34 PM PDT, October 17, 2006

imageimageWesley Snipes, whose flash and dash style of acting carried him from the streets of the South Bronx to movie stardom, has been indicted on charges of conspiracy and tax fraud, federal officials announced today.

Snipes, 44, was also charged with six counts of failing to file income tax returns. If convicted of all of the charges, he could be sentenced to as much as 16 years in prison. Snipes’ whereabouts could not be determined, said Steve Cole, a spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Middle District of Florida.

“We made an attempt to contact him through his attorneys and now with the news conference,” Cole said in a telephone interview. “Maybe he’ll find out from the media and turn himself in.” The indictment is the latest reversal for the star whose diverse career starring in action, comedic and dramatic roles dazzled fans for more than 20 years.

From his success in the 1986 football film “Wildcats” to a drug lord in “New Jack City” to a sports hustler in “White Men Can’t Jump” to his superhero turn in the “Blade” movies, Snipes has been a stellar fixture on the screen.

But Snipes’ off-screen personal and financial difficulties have mounted in recent years. His Florida mansion was in foreclosure, his former agency sued to collect an overdue debt and an admitted former crack addict took him to court in a paternity case that the star eventually won after reams of bad publicity.

Today’s indictment accuses Snipes, formerly of Windermere, Fla., Eddie Ray Kahn, of Sorrento, Fla., and Douglas P. Rosile, of Venice, Fla., with conspiracy to defraud the Internal Revenue Service and presenting a fraudulent claim for payment to the IRS.

According to the indictment released by the Justice Department, Kahn was the founder and leader of American Rights Litigators and its successor, Guiding Light of God Ministries. The businesses sold fraudulent tax schemes, authorities said in a statement.

Rosile was identified as a former accountant who continued to work after his CPA licenses were revoked in Ohio and Florida. He allegedly prepared fraudulent tax returns for American Rights Litigators, which charged its members a fee, half of which it allegedly paid to Rosile. In addition, ARL would collect 20% of any refund and half of that went to Rosile.

Snipes, Kahn and Rosile are accused of making it appear that Snipes had no liability for federal income taxes. According to authorities, the claim is known as an “861 argument,” which asserts that U.S. citizens and residents can be taxed only on income derived from certain foreign-based activities and not on income earned within the United States — a position that has been rejected by the courts.

The defendants filed two amended federal income tax returns for Snipes, claiming almost $12 million in refunds from 1996 and 1997 income taxes. The indictment also accuses Snipes of failing to file his 1999 through 2004 federal income tax returns.

“Our system of government depends on citizens paying their fair share of taxes,” U.S. Atty. Paul I. Perez of the Middle District of Florida, said in a statement. “Those who intentionally and unlawfully harass the IRS through deceit, trickery and fraud undermine the collection of revenue that is vital to every aspect of the operation of our government.”

According to spokesman Cole, the indictments were handed up last week. Authorities contacted Snipes’ lawyers on Friday and asked that the actor surrender for arraignment today. The lawyers said that they no longer represented Snipes, Cole said. Rosile surrendered today, but Kahn was believed to be in Panama, Cole said..

Chavez Bites Big Oil

Our favorite South American tinpot dictator is grabbing American, French and Norwegian oil companies in Venezuela. It’s going to cost him beaucoups cash though. Maybe he feels it’s worth it to get rid of the “devil yanquis”?

Regardless, it looks like Citgo will be the only presence left now. I noticed last week that several Citgo stations here in St. Louis are refusing to take Citgo credit cards with the explanation that they will be “re-branding soon”.

I guess that means they’ll still Citgo gas but call it something else. Maybe Hugo Supremo? ChavCo? Vexxon? My mind is awhirl with all kinds of new advertising slogans. Help me out here ...

Chavez Risks $1.6 Billion Bond Default in Oil Venture Takeovers
(BLOOMBERG) - October 16, 2006

imageimageVenezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s plan to take control of oil production joint ventures run by Exxon Mobil Corp. and ConocoPhillips may lead to defaults on $1.6 billion in bonds.

Chavez said his government would seize four companies owned in part by Exxon, ConocoPhillips, Chevron Corp., France’s Total SA and Norway’s Statoil ASA. The ventures, set up before Chavez came to power in 1999, pump 22 percent of the nation’s oil. Two of them sold the bonds and the others owe $2.3 billion in loans.

Defaults may require state-run Petroleos de Venezuela SA to repay bonds that now cost as little as 90 percent of their face value, providing a “nice windfall’’ for investors, said Miguel Octavio, a fund manager at BBO Financial Services in Caracas who holds the securities.

“You would have a completely different project than the bondholders originally agreed to finance,’’ said Gersan Zurita, an analyst in New York with Fitch Ratings. “What the government wants would constitute a major material change. If it’s done without private bondholder consent, we could have a default.’’

The ventures—Petrozuata CA, Cerro Negro CA, Sincor SA and Hamaca—pump 540,000 barrels of crude a day for the world’s fifth-largest oil exporter. Irving, Texas-based Exxon; ConocoPhillips of Houston; San Ramon, California-based Chevron; and others invested about $17 billion in the companies in the 1990s when oil prices were as low as $10 a barrel. Spokesmen for the companies either declined to comment or didn’t return calls.

Petrozuata, 50.1 percent owned by ConocoPhillips, sold $1 billion in bonds in three parts. Its $625 million of 8.22 percent bonds due in 2017 have risen to 97.8 cents from 95 cents on the dollar a year ago, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. If the bonds are paid in full by year-end, they would generate a price gain of 2.25 percent, Bloomberg data show.

Cerro Negro, run by Exxon, has $600 million in outstanding bonds, also in three maturities. The company’s $50 million of 8.03 percent bonds due in 2028 would gain about 11 percent if repaid at face value. The securities were recently trading at about 90.12 cents on the dollar.

Petroleos de Venezuela and Exxon each own just less than 42 percent of Cerro Negro, and BP Plc has the balance. Sincor, whose foreign shareholders include Paris-based Total and Statoil, in Stavanger, has $1.2 billion in outstanding loans, while Hamaca has $1.1 billion in loans. Hamaca is owned by ConocoPhillips, Chevron, and Petroleos de Venezuela.

If At First You Don’t Succeed

Liberals are stupid as hell ... and they’re also persistent as hell. Air America fell flat on its face so what do they do to win the hearts and minds of middle America? You guessed it! They throw up another all-Liberal radio network. It’s called “Nova M”. That stands for New Madness. Oh, joy ...

Details Emerge On Nova M, New Liberal Net
(RADIO & RECORDS) - Oct. 18, 2006

More details are coming to light on Nova M, the liberal talk network formed earlier this year by Air America Radio co-founders Anita and Sheldon Drobny. Based in Phoenix, the new network will debut Oct. 30 on KPHX/Phoenix, a former Air America station that went dark in March under new ownership. As previously reported, the network has also entered into a lease management agreement with KDXE/Little Rock.

Mike Malloy, a former member of the Air America team, will host a show from 9 p.m. to Midnight ET.

Also airing on the network will be Dr. Mike Newcomb — a former gubernatorial candidate and physician, who also serves as Nova M’s CEO — from 9 a.m. to Noon ET, and Peter B. Collins, a San Francisco Talk personality, who will air 6 to 9 p.m. ET. Also joining Nova M is pollster John Zogby, president and CEO of Zogby International, who will also host a show on the network called “The Pulse of the Nation.”

Joe Trippi, best known as the brains behind Howard Dean’s Web site that helped raise more than $40 million for the former presidential candidate, will serve as media and communication consultant to the network.

“US Air Force Memorial”

Fireworks light up the Air Force Memorial at Arlington, Va., on the eve of its official dedication ceremony. President George W. Bush joined senior Defense Department and Air Force officials in a ceremony to present the memorial to the nation on October 15. The Memorial was officially opened to the public on Monday, October 16.

Designed by the late James Ingo Freed, the memorial with its three soaring spires inspired by the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds bomb burst maneuver, pays tribute to and honors the men and women of the U.S. Air Force and its predecessor organizations.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
