Will Anyone Listen This Time?

Rush Limbaugh writes about there now being proof that Obama is (at best) a Socialist. No kidding.


Stanley Kurtz at National Review has done research for 5 years and has now published a book: Obama was a member of the far left New Party, and deeply involved in ACORN’s illegal activities. No kidding.

The New Party had a front group called Progressive Chicago, whose job was to identify candidates that the New Party and its sympathizers might support. Nearly four years before Obama was endorsed by the New Party, both he and Harwell [Carol Harwell, Obama’s 1996 Illinois Senate campaign manager] joined Progressive Chicago and began signing public letters that regularly reported on the group’s meetings. By prominently taking part in Progressive Chicago activities, Obama was effectively soliciting New Party support for his future political career (as was Harwell, on Obama’s behalf). So Harwell’s testimony is doubly false [that Obama was never a member of, nor sought support from, the New Party].


Unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers admitted more than a year ago that he ghost wrote Obama’s autobiography. No kidding. Lately it’s turned out that several parts of that tale are complete bullshit composite characters.


No one even notices any more that Obama and Ayers were both close friends with PLO terrorist Rashid Khalidi when the US considered the PLO to be a terrorist organization. That’s buried at this point, over the horizon and under the radar. Even when Obama gives nearly a fifth of a billion dollars to the Palestinians, against the wishes and policy of the US government, nobody mentions that one. Nobody mentions the Muslim connection we all know is there.


The extreme left took over the Democrat party years ago. They don’t even bother to hide their communist / socialist / anarchist beliefs any longer. They just use the old Red term from the 20s, Progressive, and nobody notices or makes the blatantly obvious connection. Forward! is their new slogan. The old slogan. The Red one. And nobody listens.


I could go on and on and on. We still have no idea about Obama’s past. He is still the Manchurian Candidate. I’ve said it many times in the past until I’m blue in the face. Taking over the auto industries. Taking over the banks. Taking over the health industry. Student loans. Shredding the Constitution, that “flawed document” in his own words. Police State tactics in Colorado and elsewhere. Spy drones in the air over America. Deliberate efforts to inflame race and gender tension. Trillions and trillions in spending - borrowed money - on his buddies’ phony green initiatives. Stimulus .  Scamulus! Doing everything he can do to lose the war in Afghanistan. Breaking ties with our best allies. Destroying the nation’s energy businesses to the best of his abilities. The indefinite holding thing. Fast and Furious. NASA is now a Muslim Outreach center. The blogger intimidation thing. Beer summit because “the cops acted stupidly”. His “son” Treyvon. The snitch web sites run by the White House. The list is nearly endless. So many items that even major ones get lost in the shuffle and fall down the memory hole. And we still have no idea how this guy, this possible Kenyan, this probable Muslim, this admitted dope smoking “Choom Gang” spliff intercepting stoner who cut class and didn’t put any effort into his own education, got into such fine schools, the Ivy Leagues, what his grades were, the whole Harvard Law Review thing, who paid for them, and so on. Trip to Pakistan under a false name/false passport? Lost down the memory hole. False Selective Service ID, false Social Security? Lost in the shuffle. In all the years since his days as a “professor of constitutional law” - since downgraded to “guest lecturer” or some such - only ONE student has emerged that took his class. The only part of his time at school that has emerged was his endorsement of a radical race baiting social justice professor, Derrick Bell, the creator of Critical Race Theory - you know, the one that says that to give the black race a chance you have to tear down America to the last brick and rebuild it as a socialist state.

The man has done everything he could possibly do to raise the Red Banner and nail it in place forever. Fundamental Change indeed. Just like Derrick Bell said to. And Saul Alinski. And Jerimiah Wright. And Karl Marx. And nobody listens.

To the news media, that special leftist elite who controls our thoughts, he is still God. With a halo. Unquestioned and untarnished.

And nobody listens.

who’s on first

I was supposed to close this thing down an hour ago BUT ......

This was funny when I saw it in a movie years ago.
I once worked at a radio station where every year on the first day of the season, the sports call in program would air this.

It was rolling on the floor funny when I am happy to say I saw them perform this routine in person at The Star Theater in Hartford,Ct. in the 50s.

So, since I brought up the subject of sports earlier and since Vilmar feared I might have forgotten baseball, I thought I’d post this for laffs and for friend Vilmar too.

The rest of you might enjoy it too.

Now I am outta here.  Night all.

Greek far-right party member assaults female politicians on TV.

Sorry but there wasn’t any embed. Worth seeing. Fun in fact. Mood matching the weather tonight.

okay perhaps he should have been what? Calmer? Yeah I guess but. I can see where two ppl shouting at each other and tempers get up to speed and in frustration he tosses water at her. But then the fat commie slag gets into it too and he’s wound up tighter then is good for either of them and boom. He let fly. And because he represents the right and of course every single person in the world who is right of center is automatically a rabid Nazi, folks will dump on him.
Although I just noticed, in his case he may be that rabid person.

Too bad we couldn’t see what came before and what I mean is. One of the two might have interrupted the other and so the verbal fight started first. Sometimes I hear it on BBC Radio 4, three ppl all talking or sometimes shouting over each other, and I wish I could whack em all. By which I mean hit not kill. Just to be clear on that. And other times someone is trying to make a point and someone else, and it is almost always someone on the left, talks over them. Won’t shut the hell up and keeps on shouting. Other times the moderator will ask a question of someone, and take a half hour to do it, and then the jerk ends up answering his own damn question. So yeah, I can see where someone will just say oh the hell with it and swing, cos they’ve taken all the bs they can stand. Would love to see some of that in our congress or senate or in parliament. Get soooooo sick of hearing the honorable gentleman and that other slop, my learned friend, when we all know what they really think and mean. And anyway, they’re only politicians which means they’re mostly lying bastards. I don’t even trust the ones I think I like. And really, the supposed “outrage” expressed by some is pure hokum anyway. They have to express disapproval. Don’t they?  Can you just imagine the reaction if one of them said, well, The broad wouldn’t shut the hell up and let him speak.  Or, was it the other way round? Whatever, he didn’t like her attitude. LOL.

Outrage as Greek far-right party member assaults female politicians on TV
By Harry Papachristou and Dina Kyriakidou | Reuters – 4 hours ago

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/video#video=29586145

ATHENS (Reuters) - The spokesman of Greece’s far-right Golden Dawn party slapped one female leftist politician in the face and threw a glass of water at another during a live TV debate on Thursday, causing a political uproar and an order for his arrest.

Other political parties condemned Ilias Kasidiaris for the assault on the two women during a morning talk show on private television station Antenna ahead of the June 17 parliamentary election.
Kasidiaris, whose party entered parliament for the first time on May 6, was locked in a room at the TV studio but broke down a door and escaped, the TV host said.
A public prosecutor ordered police to track him down and arrest him on charges of causing serious bodily harm, a court official said.
The TV debate descended into chaos when Kasidiaris threw a glass of water at Rena Dourou, a member of the radical leftist SYRIZA party and called her a “joke”.
As other panellists watched in stunned silence, Communist party deputy Liana Kanelli intervened on Dourou’s behalf, throwing a newspaper at Kasidiaris, who called her a “commie”, stood up, pushed her and hit her hard in the face.
“I was worried he might throw the glass and hurt somebody,” Kanelli told reporters later. She showed a dark bruise on her cheek, saying: “It’s my badge of honour.”
Golden Dawn came from nowhere to win 7 percent of the inconclusive vote in May and enter parliament for the first time, riding a wave of hostility towards illegal immigrants in austerity-ridden Greece.
The party denies it is neo-Nazi, though its chief Nikos Mihaloliakos delivers Nazi salutes and has denied the Holocaust.

a request to american bmews readers— GOT THE ANSWER AND, it’s a senior moment?

I wrote this post forgetting that I forgot to hold on to something called memory.
I really,really,really don’t remember that position.
Oh dear.

To quote the late and great Ed. G. Robinson in one of his 30’s movies.
“Mother of Mercy. Is this the end of Rico?”

Did I somehow lose the plot line?  Or, have they changed position names since I stopped following football?

Sometime last week I happened to see an article in the Telegraph which you may already know is a Brit newspaper.  In that article about a young player, he was described as being the “Cornerback.”

So, I wrote a letter to the paper telling them I was an American and in all my time I did not ever hear that term used as Quarterback was the correct term.
Well ....  Maybe Not ?????????

Here was the answer I got back just minutes ago.

I am writing in response to your email concerning Justin Combs’s recruitment to UCLA.

Cornerback is the position Justin will play for the college football team. I have attached the Wikipedia entry for the position in defence.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cornerback

I hope this offers some explanation to you.

Yours sincerely,

Andy King

Editorial Information Executive


Okay hang on a minute. I read something wrong and re-read the Wikipedia entry. BUT .... I am still trying to work this one out because honestly, I never heard the word or term “Cornerback” before the article I questioned.
Cornerback?
Really?
When?
Was it always that?

hoarding couple with 30 tons of garbage

Good grief Charlie Brown take a look at this and all the rest at the link. I’m posting this mostly I guess because, lets face it, train wrecks like this are interesting even if disgusting.

Haven’t a clue how humans can even think of living like this.
Can anyone this far gone be thought to be mentally well? I understand the MILs hoarding ALL of the letters she ever got from her son and daughter. I wouldn’t do that but I understand it. But this story is way, way beyond that. But I must say, the MIL hoarded lots of other ‘stuff’ better thrown away. Which we did when we moved here. But we had to fight her from time to time and we got rid of lots more without her even knowing. But nothing close to this.

I guess there are people who once they have something in their possession, just can not let go. But it looks here like these ppl were also just collecting garbage.

And it took TWO YEARS to do anything about this. Jeesh.

Hoarding couple with 65 cats kicked out of council house as workers find three dead pets under 30 TONS of rubbish

* Christopher and Elizabeth Blore have been ordered out of their home while the council remove 30 tonnes of waste

* Brent Council will have to shell out £18,000 to fumigate and clean the property

* The couple have now been banned from keeping cats

By TAMMY HUGHES

A couple with 65 cats have been kicked out of their council home after health inspectors found it was jam-packed with rubbish - finding three dead cats underneath old bin bags.

Christopher and Elizabeth Blore were ordered out of their home in Kingsbury in Brent, northwest London, after council workers were left staggered at the mess - which reached from floor to ceiling in most rooms.

The couple were told not to return to their home for three months so the council could clear the rubbish up and fumigate the home.

Brent Council was made aware of the situation by neighbours more than two years ago after they complained of a ‘putrid smell’, and after a protracted battle with the couple they finally managed to get them out of the house last week.

The council also revealed that it had successfully won an Asbo against the couple banning them from keeping or feeding cats.
Sergeant Liam Tierney said: ‘It was only when taking statements from the neighbours that we realised what a devastating effect the Blores where having on their everyday lives.

Anybody miss me?

Between Memorial Day, with certain family members who think a surprise visit is always welcome, especially with the whole clan in tow, the usual marital spats, health problems (which I’m now convinced are psychosomatic, caused by family), the continuing job search WHILE taking a course to earn my license to practice in the state, then fighting depression because somehow it was all my fault that the ‘clan’ descending on me unannounced wasn’t a ‘thrill’, I’ve been busy.

But my buddy flapjawman saved me today. He sent me the latest Obama campaign bumper sticker:

Read It and Weep

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

Golly, I hope those old words sound familiar to you. And I hope you understand what they used to mean. Not any longer. The 4th Amendment is dead, at least in Colorado.

Welcome to life in the Police State:


Police in Aurora, Colo., searching for suspected bank robbers stopped every car at an intersection, handcuffed all the adults and searched the cars, one of which they believed was carrying the suspect.

Police said they had received what they called a “reliable” tip that the culprit in an armed robbery at a Wells Fargo bank committed earlier was stopped at the red light.

“We didn’t have a description, didn’t know race or gender or anything, so a split-second decision was made to stop all the cars at that intersection, and search for the armed robber,” Aurora police Officer Frank Fania told ABC News.

Officers barricaded the area, halting 19 cars.

“Cops came in from every direction and just threw their car in front of my car,” Sonya Romero, one of the drivers who was handcuffed, told ABC News affiliate KMGH-TV in Denver.

From there, the police went from car to car, removing the passengers and handcuffing the adults.

“Most of the adults were handcuffed, then were told what was going on and were asked for permission to search the car,” Fania said. “They all granted permission, and once nothing was found in their cars, they were un-handcuffed.”

The search lasted between an hour and a half and two hours, and it wasn’t until the final car was searched that police apprehended the suspect.
...
The other people who had been held at the intersection were allowed to leave once the suspect was apprehended.

Oh please ... the bank teller dropped a GPS transmitter in the bag. “Reliable tip” my ass.


AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – The FBI has confirmed the man arrested in connection to a bank robbery in Aurora is the suspect they were looking for and acted alone.

The suspect has been identified as Christian Paetsch, 45, of Centennial.

The Wells Fargo at Chambers and Hampden was robbed just before closing time on Saturday. Shortly afterwards police shut down the intersection of Buckley and Iliff just southeast of the bank, corralling nearly two dozen cars in search for the suspect.

Police Chief Daniel Oates on Monday apologized to the innocent bystanders that got caught up in the search for the suspect. Oates also said the ends justify the means since the suspect was caught.

RCOB yet? No? Read on.

About 19 vehicles were stopped Saturday afternoon for about two hours.

Oates would not discuss the tracking technology used, but called it a “virtual certainty” that the suspect was among the 40 people stopped and handcuffed.

Paetsch had one previous arrest. Oates called him extraordinarily dangerous.

Oates said because of the description of the suspect a lieutenant made the decision to stop everyone in the area. Oates called the stops lawful and necessary.

You may cry over the next bit, but you have to thank the government schools for it:

Oats said the police department has received about five complaints regarding the methods used, but none of them came from any of the 40 people who were detained.

Nothing but sheep.

Oh, and just to piss you off a bit more, note how that as the cops searched each car - for which they had received permission by the HANDCUFFED occupants ( under duress MUCH??? ) - the cleared vehicles STILL had to remain in the intersection and were not allowed to go on their way. Detained, even though there were known to be innocent ... and left in place, in a possible line of fire should the robbers try and shoot their way clear.

Oates shouldn’t just be fired. He should be hung. And the LT too. And every cop who took part in this should be out of a job, no pay, no pension, no benefits. Gone. Because they DO know better. And if they don’t, then they have no business being cops. None.

Firms face compulsory quotas if they don’t put women in top jobs

A nice socialist solution?
Mr. Cable as you’d guess, is a left winger and this sort of thing is dear to his heart.
Can you imagine setting aside a prescribed number in a case like this to be able to check the pc boxes.
Well, the new head of state in France is working on it. His declared goal of a cabinet made up of 50% female has been reached. Not my concern and good for them. But I can’t help but wonder as others do, what sort of qualifications do they come to the job with? Or was the qualification, female?

Mr. Cable and a few friends are most concerned that there aren’t enough ladies on the boards of companies. Not demeaning women in any way but, how many are there who want to but can’t because evil men are keeping them out?  Not saying women haven’t been unfairly treated many times in the job market. But Cable and crew are assuming the companies are some sort of anti female conspiracy trying to keep women out. So, his solution is to arbitrarily fix a number to be grafted onto businesses with boards.
Affirmative action anyone? 

More then anything else however, this reminds me of a brainless lefty suggestion by a member of the previous govt. Some of you regulars might recall my post on the subject of, fishing.  Think it’s a joke? Think again.

A few years ago it was said that the famed fishing rivers of England were enjoyed by too many white middle aged men. So the brainless twits on the left thought it would be a good idea to make fishing and fishing lessons available.
To muslim women.  Who it was found, were not to be found enjoying England’s fishing streams and rivers or wherever it was fish go to relax.

I always thought it was my local Tesco, since that’s where my wife had always caught the fish she brought home.
Needless to say, the plan went nowhere. But that anyone thought it was something worthy of a govt. program says a lot about the loons.


Firms face compulsory quotas if they don’t put women in top jobs insists Vince Cable

By JAMES CHAPMAN
PUBLISHED: 22:07, 4 June 2012 | UPDATED: 22:07, 4 June 2012-06-06
Businesses could be hit with compulsory quotas to increase the number of women on boards unless they raise the number voluntarily said Vince Cable.
The Business Secretary said he was ready to introduce legal targets if firms had failed to ensure a quarter of executives at board level were female by 2015.
He also suggested that if he were prime minister, half of the Cabinet would be women.
Mr Cable said there were encouraging signs that firms were beginning to heed calls for gender equality – revealing figures suggesting that in the past three months, half of new appointments to FTSE company boards have been women.

He said he planned to ‘name and shame’ companies that fail to make further progress. One in ten of Britain’s biggest firms still has all-male boards.
‘It’s very, very important that women are there in numbers,’ Mr Cable said.

‘Our objective is to get a quarter of all board membership being women by 2015.
‘Our current approach, which is trying to change the culture, trying to name and shame, I think will work. If it doesn’t, we can look at things like quotas.
‘There is a body called the Financial Reporting Council that requires companies to declare publicly what they do.
‘So companies will be in the future publicly identified and there will then be a role for me to go out and say publicly, “This is a disgrace, you should change your behaviour”.’
Asked whether he woul0d introduce quotas if that approach failed to deliver the target figures, the Business Secretary said: ‘I would, yes. I think that’s a perfectly legitimate last resort. But I think the current approach that we have adopted is beginning to produce serious results, so let’s give it a chance.’

NOW HERE’S WHERE THINGS PICK UP AND GET REALLY INTERESTING. Mr Cable is not the lone voice on the subject. Oh no.
There is this super body of unwanted gas bags.

The EU has announced a consultation on how to increase women’s presence on corporate boards, warning that progress towards equality is too slow.
Mandatory quotas are being threatened if member states fail to make sufficient progress.

The EU’s Justice Commissioner, Viviane Reding, has warned that on current rates of change, it will take more than 40 years for women to hold 40 per cent of board positions in Europe’s publicly traded companies.
In Britain, companies are working towards a voluntary target to increase the percentage of women on FTSE 100 boards to 25 per cent, up from 12.5 per cent last year. But business leaders have warned against compulsory quotas.

On BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour the Business Secretary also took a swipe at David Cameron’s failure to meet an aspiration that a third of his ministers should be women. There are five women – all Conservative – in the Cabinet.

In a reference to the new French president’s decision to make half of his top team female, Mr Cable said: ‘If I ever finish up in Mr Cameron’s job, and who knows what could happen, you might well get a Francois Hollande moment.’
Meanwhile, Tory MP Peter Bone demanded that Vince Cable be sacked from the Cabinet after it emerged that the Business Secretary was in contact with Labour to discuss a possible alliance following the next election.

Sure It Did, Right

Spray Tan Sets Off TSA Sensors

Agents Forced To Give Glamor Model Special Private Attention

Uh huh, yeah right. As if 25,000 people a day don’t go through airport security wearing spray tans. It’s just that very few of them look like this:

image

The next time you fly, you can be sure airport security has you protected from spray tans, based on one model’s tale.

Fitness model Laura Prestin, who hails from Canada, has been featured in magazines like American Curves and Muscle Magazine. She has been a fitness trainer for celebrities and Playboy models.

Prestin says her trip to Cancun ran into some roadblocks when a machine used by airport security to screen travelers showed a “big, red flashing 88%”which caused her to be pulled aside by security guards.

Prestin said the guards brought her “into some room” and began “rummaging through my bag” while also questioning her if she could “think of any chemical that would be so potent or leave such an impact on the screening?”

Initially, she said no, unable to come up with a plausible answer for the government agents.

After thinking about the various cosmetics and hair care products she carried with her, Prestin remembered that she had received a spray tan the night before.

After explaining the tan to the security agents, Prestin said, “they burst out laughing, patting me on the back and putting all my stuff back together.”

Hey, I went through a similar ordeal because my bag had a damp bar of Dial soap in a bag inside. Perhaps TSA’s specialized detectors really aren’t all that specialized after all, and just react to high levels of esters (aromatic substances)? Hmm, I wonder if wearing too much perfume will get you “randomly selected” for “special attention”? Or maybe all it takes is a tight body and a hefty set of bolt-ons ... perhaps the screeners’ own pheremones set the thing off?


image
This could be her sending a threatening message to TSA. Better investigate right away!

latest score from the law courts. Gremlin 1 …. Justice 0

This is a real short one and posted to show just how ludicrous the criminal system is.
Maybe there’s a valid reason and not being a legal eagle, I just do not understand.

Here’s a guy who attacks someone with a ball bat and who has previous convictions for assault and criminal damage. So it isn’t his first brush with the law.
So he’s arrested and says no he didn’t do it but hey, the guy what got whacked knows but no matter. He’s going to trial.
Meanwhile .... he goes on Facebook and brags that he thinks he “got away with it.” Smart huh?

However .... someone grasses him and shows the court his postings and so he had to change his plea to guilty.
Justice will be served.
Oh yeah? Ya think?
Have another thunk.

‘I think I got away with it’: ‘Stupid’ ABH criminal convicted after bragging to friends on Facebook before jury began deliberations

Michael Ruse changed his plea to guilty after his Facebook updates were printed off and delivered to court anonymously
He had been on trial for attacking his friend’s father with a baseball bat and baton
Asked by a friend how the case was going, he wrote: ‘Yeah I think I get away with it tbh x (sic)’

He described the judge as ‘stuck up’ in another update after he was convicted

But he escaped with a suspended prison sentence, a curfew and a fine

By ROB PREECE

Michael Ruse, 21, was on trial at Portsmouth Crown Court with his friend Terry Reeve for attacking Reeve’s father, Gareth, with a baseball bat and baton.

But he changed his plea to guilty after the court was shown a printout of his updates about the case on the social networking website.

Even after he was convicted, he went back online to call the judge in the case ‘stuck up’ - only hours before he was sentenced.

Just before the jury was sent out, Ruse, of Leigh Park, Hampshire, posted a status update on the social networking site saying: ‘Another week at court.’

When asked by a friend about the case he added: ‘Yeah I think I get away with it tbh x (sic)’.

Ruse, who used the name Michael Miles online, added that the case was ‘looking good’ for him.

There is more HERE if you want the rest.

An Omen In Wisconsin?

Walker Survives Recall Vote In Wisconsin



A win for Walker means a loss for the unions, and the outcome of this election has been called a bellwether for Obama. As one pundit put it last week, “If Walker wins, Obama is toast.” Hey, you want to spread some jam on that? grin


Wisconsin’s Walker survives recall by wide margin

Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scott Walker wakes up Wednesday knowing he’ll get to finish his term, after voters by a wide margin sided with him in a recall election that attracted national attention and divided much of the state—from opposing political parties to neighbors and even family members.
...
With nearly all precincts reporting, Walker had 53 percent of the vote, compared with 46 percent for Barrett. The margin of victory was wider than many expected and slightly better than Walker’s 5.8 percentage-point victory over Barrett in the 2010 race. Some 2.5 million voters cast their ballots.

Walker’s lieutenant governor, Rebecca Kleefisch, and at least three Republicans in state Senate races survived recalls. Unofficial results showed the Democrat ahead in the other Senate race, the outcome of which will determine which party controls the Senate at least through the end of the year.

The recall effort began when the first-term governor and Republicans in the state legislature rolled back what they considered excesses in the collective bargaining agreements of public-employee unions—an effort to cut Wisconsin’s estimated $3.6 billion budget shortfall.

Wisconsin went for President Obama in 2008, but the recall results give Republicans hope that their presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, can win there in November.

In plain American, this was a putsch led by the unions. And it failed.

Republicans see Walker’s win as evidence voters across the country want their elected officials to keep government living within its means. They said this paves the way for Romney to become the first Republican candidate to carry Wisconsin since Ronald Reagan in 1984.

The outcome Tuesday is also a blow to the labor movement, which poured considerable resources into the failed effort to oust Walker.
...
The recall effort started about a year and a half ago, after the legislature passed Walker’s proposal to curb public employee union power, while also requiring most public state workers to pay more for health insurance and pension benefits.

Democrats and unions argued the governor had gone too far, and they helped organize massive statehouse protests and gather 900,000 signatures for the recall vote.
...
Since taking office, Walker has reduced the state budget and seen a drop in the state’s unemployment rate.

Cup of TEA, sir?

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.
