Sunday Pin-Ups (sorta)

Three little lovelies for the men today. Ladies, scroll down for yours.




We start with the king of pin-ups, Alberto Vargas.

From the time Esquire first introduced America to the Varga Girl, in 1940, the name Vargas has been synonymous with pin-up and glamour art. In fact, the word "vargas" has actually been applied to almost every kind of pin-up subject - a fitting tribute to the most famous and prolific glamour artist of all time.
Born February 9, 1896, in Peru, Alberto Vargas was the son of a renowned photographer, Max Vargas, who had taught him how to use an airbrush by the time he was thirteen. Vargas' first encounter with America happened about noon at Broadway and Fourteenth Street, when he was suddenly surrounded by a lunchtime crowd of smartly dressed office workers. Mesmerized by their grace, sophistication, and beauty the young artist decided he would spend his life glorifying the American Girl.

Vargas maintained a full schedule throughout the 1920s, working for a diverse group of clients in addition to the Follies and Paramount. Vargas. By 1935, he was working for Warner Brothers and, before the decade was over, for MGM.

Vargas' first calendar jobs were two pastel glamour pin-ups executed for Joseph C. Hoover and Sons between 1937 and 1939. He became an American citizen in 1939.

Vargas continued to paint Hollywood stars while he worked for Esquire. His 1941 movie poster of Betty Grable in Moon Over Miami was a great success; among the other leading ladies he painted were such stars as Jane Russell, Ann Sheridan, Ava Gardner Linda Darnell, Marlene Dietrich, Loretta Young, and Marilyn Monroe.

In 1957, Playboy magazine published a pictorial feature on Vargas' nudes, which drew the attention of publisher Hugh Hefner.Embarking on this momentous association in 1960, Vargas was to paint 152 works for Playboy during this period, adapting to new moral standards and more explicit sexuality.

This one is untitled.






Next we have an artist named Jennifer Janesko

Janesko began drawing and painting female images at a very early age. The Kansas City artist started exhibiting sensual female paintings in galleries after graduating from Stephens College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in December, 1989. As a fine artist, Jennifer focuses her attention on the female form. As an added effect, Jennifer often uses metallic gold and silver on selected areas of clothing and accessories. The hard, reflective metallic sharply contrasts with the soft, flowing skin for a dramatic effect. Jennifer uses airbrush and paintbrush to create a mixed media painting.

Jennifer Janesko's distinctive art is quickly achieving international recognition. Playboy magazine featured illustrations by Janesko in the June 1998, March 1999, March 2000 and February 2001 issues.

Title: "Fit to be Tied"






Last, we have Drew Posada

He was born in 1969, as Andrew Posada and raised in a very poor household that didn’t have money to buy sporting equipment and video games, etc. but always had pencils and paper.

He became a professional freelance artist in 1985. After graduating high school he freelanced as an artist and worked as a picture framer.

In 1994 he was flown down from Seattle to San Diego to try out for a job as an illustrator at Image Comics. They hired him immediately and he worked for quite a few studios within Image; Top Cow, Wildstorm and Extreme.

Title: Heaven and Hell






Ladies, the last time Allan tried this we heard complaints about the pin-up being too young, blah, blah, blah. So in an effort to ameliorate this situation, we give you this:

Quote of the Day

Democracy is two wolves and a sheep debating what to have for dinner. Freedom is a well-armed sheep ready to contest the vote! Ben Franklin



On This Day in History

1785 Caroline Herschel becomes 1st woman discoverer of a comet
1790 1st US census (population of 3,939,214)
1834 Slavery abolished in British empire
1944 Adam Clayton Powell elected 1st black congressman from East
1958 1st class postage up to $0.04 (had been $0.03 for 26 years)
1987 Crossbow flight record (2,005 yds 1'9") set by Harry Drake in Nevada

1914 FIRST WORLD WAR ERUPTS.

Four days after Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, Germany and Russia declare war against each other, France orders a general mobilization, and the first German army units cross into Luxembourg in preparation for the German invasion of France. During the next three days, Russia, France, Belgium, and Great Britain all lined up against Austria-Hungary and Germany, and the German army invaded Belgium. The "Great War" that ensued was one of unprecedented destruction and loss of life, resulting in the deaths of some 20 million soldiers and civilians.

On June 28, 1914, in an event that is widely regarded as sparking the outbreak of World War I, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian empire, was shot to death with his wife by Bosnian Serb Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, Bosnia. On July 28, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia, and the tenuous peace between Europe's great powers collapsed. On July 29, Austro-Hungarian forces began to shell the Serbian capital of Belgrade, and Russia, Serbia's ally, ordered a troop mobilization against Austria-Hungary. France, allied with Russia, began to mobilize on August 1. France and Germany declared war against each other on August 3. After crossing through neutral Luxembourg, the Germany army invaded Belgium on the night of August 3-4, prompting Great Britain, Belgium's ally, to declare war against Germany.

For the most part, the people of Europe greeted the outbreak of war with jubilation. Most patriotically assumed that their country would be victorious within months. By the end of 1914, well over a million soldiers of various nationalities had been killed on the battlefields of Europe, and neither for the Allies nor the Central Powers was a final victory in sight. On the western front--the battle line that stretched across northern France and Belgium--the combatants settled down in the trenches for a terrible war of attrition.

In 1915, the Allies attempted to break the stalemate with an amphibious invasion of Turkey, which had joined the Central Powers in October 1914, but after heavy bloodshed the Allies were forced to retreat in early 1916. The year 1916 saw great offensives by Germany and Britain along the western front, but neither side accomplished a decisive victory. In the east, Germany was more successful, and the disorganized Russian army suffered terrible losses, spurring the outbreak of the Russian Revolution in 1917. By the end of 1917, the Bolsheviks had seized power in Russia and immediately set about negotiating peace with Germany. In 1918, the infusion of American troops and resources into the western front finally tipped the scale in the Allies' favor. Bereft of manpower and supplies and faced with an imminent invasion, Germany signed an armistice agreement with the Allies in November 1918.

World War I was known as the "war to end all wars" because of the great slaughter and destruction it caused. Unfortunately, the peace treaty that officially ended the conflict--the Treaty of Versailles of 1919--forced punitive terms on Germany that destabilized Europe and laid the groundwork for World War II.



1943 PT-109 sinks; Lieutenant Kennedy is instrumental in saving crew

On this day in 1943, a Japanese destroyer rams an American PT (patrol torpedo) boat, No. 109, slicing it in two. The destruction is so massive other American PT boats in the area assume the crew is dead. Two crewmen were, in fact, killed, but 11 survived, including Lt. John F. Kennedy.

After five hours of clinging to debris from the decimated PT boat, the crew made it to a coral island. Kennedy decided to swim out to sea again, hoping to flag down a passing American boat. None came. Kennedy began to swim back to shore, but strong currents, and his chronic back condition, made his return difficult. Upon reaching the island again, he fell ill. After he recovered, the PT-109 crew swam to a larger island, what they believed was Nauru Island, but was in fact Cross Island. They met up with two natives from the island, who agreed to take a message south. Kennedy carved the distress message into a coconut shell: "Nauru Is. Native knows posit. He can pilot. 11 alive need small boat."

The message reached Lieutenant Arthur Evans, who was watching the coast of Gomu Island, located next to an island occupied by the Japanese. Kennedy and his crew were paddled to Gomu. A PT boat then took them back to Rendova. Kennedy was ultimately awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal, for gallantry in action.

The coconut shell used to deliver his message found a place in history-and in the Oval Office.

Kerry Statue Unveiled

The Official John Kerry Vietnam Veteran Statue was unveiled today.

Sadly, the artist was only able to capture one of Kerry's faces.

Mysteriously, the inscription on the statue reads "Bob Hope Is On The Way".

Issue A Fatwah Against Michael Moore?

Let's see, the one American I absolutley despise is Michael Moore. He's a fat, useless, lying fucktard.

When it comes to foreigners, the ones I hate most are the Saudis. Seventeen of the nineteen terrorists who crashed the planes on 9/11 were Saudi citizens and the Saudis have sponsored radical Islam in the form of Wahabbism around the world for decades.

Now, it appears the Saudi royal family is mad at Michael Moore for his film "F-9/11".

Who should I side with in this dispute? Hmmmmmmmmm .....

Aw, fuck it! Tell the Saudis to issue a Fatwah against Moore and have him killed. However, after Moore is dead, we bury him and wait a million years. This dead "doposaurus" should create enough oil to power our starships for centuries. Oh .. and in the meantime we force the Saudis to pay reparations to the US for the killing .... say, 20 million barrels of oil per month .... free.

I like it when a plan comes together.

Home From The Hills

Allan (Casear) here. I just wanted to let all loyal centurians and tribunes know that Caesar is well and has arrived in Rome (actually I'm about halfway between Athens and Rome). I've been travelling in my chariot since daylight from Alexandria. (for those keeping track of Caesar's travels, that is Alexandria, Virginia .. Athens, Alabama .. and Rome, Georgia) Caesar has crossed the Rubicon and is currently in a hospice just south of the "City Built on Seven Rockets" (thanks for the welcome from the loyal citizens here).

It's about 10:30 now and I'm exhausted. I'm going to take a long hot soak and retire for the evening. I have decided to rest tomorrow. The last ten days have been a whirlwind and after walking all over Boston last week, my feet are killing me. From Indianapolis to Boston to Huntsville .. over 2000 miles.

I have not completed the "Boston Report" yet but I promise to have it here for you by Monday morning. In the meantime, the first post-convention poll is out. According to the Newsweek poll just released today, the Kedwards ticket got a 4-point "bounce" coming out of the convention. Caveat: the poll has a margin of error of + or - 3%. It would seem the people polled were completely underwhelmed by the convention. I know I was. What went on inside the Fleet Center was nothing but pure f**king "theatre". P.T. Barnum would have been proud .... and based on some conversations I heard outside the convention, Barnum would have been right on the money about "one born every minute".

I have some interesting observations made during my rounds of Boston last week. Stay tuned. All will be explained.

Memo to Vilmar: Caesar will offer a pardon to you if you renounce your accusations of treason. This is a one-time offer. Recant and rejoin the fold of true Conservative Citizens. Or else ....

Memo To Mr. Minority: I'm glad to be back in the South. Swiss, huh? I suppose that's OK. The Helvetians are nice people. Have no fear of Vilmar. He's just a little wound up.

Memo To Barb: Stand firm, Tribune. Caesar is only a two-hour flight from Chicago if the Moonbats start acting up again. I depend on you and your family (except your brother) to keep an eye on the "Daley Delinquents" up there. It's too bad Jack Ryan had to make an ass of himself. I'm still waiting for the courts to unseal John Kerry's divorce records (or for the media to demand that they be released) .... it will probably be a long wait.

Memo to Dottie: Anyone with intelligence can move to the South where (a) people are polite, (b) Republicans are taking over and driving Democrats out, (c) there's a gun shop on every corner and (d) John Kerry will never show his face. Bear in mind that Vilmar has been operating from the BMEWS Florida surveillance complex, hiding in the "Land Of Dangling Chads". Ask him if he mistakenly voted for Pat Buchannen in 2000. MWah-hah-hah-ha-ha-ha .....

One thing remains true no matter where I reside ....

CUBS RULE!

P.S. Yankees suck and Cardinals blow.

Things that strike fear…..

Imagine you are a terrorist in Afghanistan, sitting around your camel dung fire, at the mouth of your cave, eating shit (because nothing else is available.)

You get ready to begin a skirmish against the infidels. You squawk your radio, get ready to leave and within minutes this things comes swooping in to make the rest of your life miserable.............




Nothing like the creativeness of our fighting men to strike fear into the hearts of heathens!

Quote of the Day

A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject. Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)

There is no cure for birth and death save to enjoy the interval. George Santayana (1863 - 1952)

1964 The U.S. space probe Ranger 7 transmitted pictures of the Moon’s surface.

1703 Daniel Defoe is put in the pillory

On this day, Daniel Defoe is put in the pillory as punishment for seditious libel, brought about by the publication of a politically satirical pamphlet.

Defoe's middle-class father had hoped Defoe would enter the ministry, but Defoe decided to become a merchant instead. After he went bankrupt in 1692, he turned to political pamphleteering to support himself. A deft writer, Defoe's pamphlets were highly effective in moving readers. His pamphlet The Shortest Way with Dissenters was an attack on High Churchman, satirically written as if from the High Church point of view but extending their arguments to the point of foolishness. Both sides of the dispute, Dissenters and High Church alike, took the pamphlet seriously, and both sides were outraged to learn it was a hoax. Defoe was arrested for seditious libel in May 1703. While awaiting his punishment, he wrote the spirited "Hymn to the Pillory." The public sympathized with Defoe and threw flowers, instead of the customary rocks, at him while he stood in the pillory.

He was sent back to Newgate Prison, from which Robert Harley, the future Earl of Oxford, obtained his release. Harley hired Defoe as a political writer and spy. To this end, Defoe set up the Review, which he edited and wrote from 1704 to 1713. It wasn't until he was nearly 60 that he began writing fiction. In 1719, The Life and Strange Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Defoe's fictional account of a shipwrecked sailor who spent 28 years on a desert island, was published. His other works include Moll Flanders (1722) and Roxana (1724). He died in London in 1731.


1941 Goering orders Heydrich to prepare for the Final Solution

On this day in 1941, Herman Goering, writing under instructions from Hitler, ordered Reinhard Heydrich, SS general and Heinrich Himmler's number-two man, "to submit to me as soon as possible a general plan of the administrative material and financial measures necessary for carrying out the desired final solution of the Jewish question."

Goering recounted briefly the outline for that "final solution" that had been drawn up on January 24, 1939: "emigration and evacuation in the best possible way." This program of what would become mass, systematic extermination was to encompass "all the territories of Europe under German occupation."

Heydrich already had some experience with organizing such a plan, having reintroduced the cruel medieval concept of the ghetto in Warsaw after the German occupation of Poland. Jews were crammed into cramped walled areas of major cities and held as prisoners, as their property was confiscated and given to either local Germans or non-Jewish Polish peasants.

Behind this horrendous scheme, carried out month by month, country by country, was Hitler, whose "greatest weakness was found in the vast numbers of oppressed peoples who hated [him] and the immoral ways of his government." This assessment was Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin's, given at a Kremlin meeting that same day, July 31, with American adviser to the president Harry Hopkins.

Caesar: Veni, Vidi, Vomiti

Caesar has left Gaul (Boston). The barbarians in this savage country are impossible to understand. They can only be destroyed. I shall have to return at a later date with more legions to subdue these subhuman creatures. It appears they have a leader now who may be more troublesome than Vercingetorix ever was. A shaggy headed, two-faced creature named Kerri who has rallied several thousand members of the Democratix tribe. Under Kerri, they are making secret plans to invade Rome.

I must return to Rome though. The Imperial Senate, under Vilmarus, has accused me of treason and I must return to answer these charges. I have abandoned my winter camp in Indianapolis and ordered all my servants to pack everything up so that Caesar can return to Rome. I say farewell to the Midwest provinces forever. Although, I do leave the famed CUBS Legion to fight off the savages in Chicago.

I will be setting up permanent camp in the province of Alabama, near the city of Huntsville. This is Caesar's homeland and it feels good to return after many years in the barbarian lands to the North. The savage tribes on the East and West coast are uniting under the leader Kerri and I fear dire days are coming for Rome. Kerri is razzle-dazzling the tribes with his ridiculous "Reporting For Duty" and "Hope Is On The Way" speeches. My spies report the barbarian tribes responded with rabid, insane chants of "Kerri! Kerri!".

Caesar is currently staying overnight at an inn in Alexandria, in the province of Virginia. I am working on my report to the Imperial Senate on the situation in Gaul. It is disturbing .. and quite "galling" if you pardon my pun.

Sometime tomorrow, Caesar will cross the Rubicon River (a.k.a. Tennessee River). At that point there is no turning back. I must settle this nasty business in Rome and unite all Conservative Romans to prepare for the coming battle with Kerri and his barbarian tribes.

Remember: WE WILL NOT TIRE, WE WILL NOT FALTER, WE WILL NOT FAIL! UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!

Al Gore Spotted In St. Pete Florida!

Officials suspect it was Al Gore but it could have been Howard Dean. Further testing is required in order to conclusively prove which one it was.

Authorities are fairly certain, though, it was DEFINITELY a member of the "Barking Moonbat" family.

WTF?  Could it be?

By now everyone should know the convention is over. John Kerry blew his wad last night. He gave it all he got.

We all know that by day, he's a left leaning, flip flopping socialistic America hating liberal.

But by night...the rallying cry goes out: (Sung to the tune of Mighty Mousesmile

Good socialists all hang around
When they hear this Mighty sound.

"Trust me! Help is on the way"

My Friday Rant

You know, it really frosts my jaws and gets my knickers in a twist every time I see how our Republican law makers act like a bunch of surrender monkeys when it comes to defending themselves.

A few weeks ago we had that guy in Illinois running for senate who wanted his wife to have sex with others. The outcry was so great he bowed out of the race. Democrats were THRILLED because now that seat is a runaway for them. After all, Democrats have no such sense of high moral grounds. OK, I still think the guy was a dirt bag and should have quit but what he does with his wife in his MARRIAGE is his business. How did the public find out about this? An activist judge in California released his divorce records. Now his opponent is being hailed as a future (and second Black) President of the United States.

Why aren't republican-type lawyers raising ABSOLUTE HOLY HELL within the legal system to demand The Poodle's divorce records be made public? If an activist judge could, through meddling, throw an election, why won't we do the same? In other words, through their lack of pursuing this case we are acquiescing that Dummycraps, who have so sense of morals or ethics, can do what they want through unethical activist judges and we let them.

Another example. People like race baiters Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton can go around yelling HYMIE or making other derogatory comments about Jews. Robert "KKK" Byrd can say NIGGER and these moonbats are still in positions of influence and power. Yet Trent Lott makes a comment on a guy's 100th birthday that had neither NIGGER nor HYMIE in it and he's forced to step down. Republicans basically handed his head on a platter to the Dummycraps. No fight. No struggle. An official in Washington D.C.use the word "niggardly" and is accused of racism (hey, fucktards! it means "cheap!") and that person loses his job. Yet liberal educators can utter epithets at whites or Asians and nothing happens. Same with Newt Gingrich and what his his name, Livingstone? who was to replace him but was cheating on his wife? They both backed down. Yet it took trials and prison sentences to get guys like Democrat Toricelli of New Jersey out.

Why don't republican lawmakers pursue through legal actions and IRS intervention the activities of those self-same liberal educators' unions? Or pursue with all the power in them the activities of teacher's unions and other unions' contributions to the Democratic party?

The past couple of weeks brings us another example. Sandy Burglar, Clinton's NSA stuffs highly classified documents in his pants, in his socks, up his ass, I don't know where else and the outcry is muted. Dummycraps yell, "It's a Republican conspiracy to take away attention from the 9-11 commission report" and republicans stand idly by.

We find out the very people responsible for security of those documents were suspicious of the Burglar and nothing was done. We see Clinton and his minions laughing this off as if it were nothing and exactly that---nothing gets done. We see this is the second Clinton high level appointee involved in illegal activities regarding classified documents and nothing gets done. It's all "an accident", "unintentional", etc.

Then we find out he had the document security folks leave him alone in the room through ruses of having to use the phone or going to the bathroom--during which times he'd stuff his pants with documents. I',I'm sorry, that alone, the stuffing of documents down points, is reason enough to shoot this bastard for treason. He knew better. He understood security procedures dealing with classified documents. He intentionally violated those rules. . Again, you do not "accidentally" or "inadvertently" take code word highly classified documents from the archives. You JUST DON'T DO IT! If you or I were to have taken JUST ONE we'd be writing this to you from Leavenworth or some other high security prison---and that's while we were awaiting trial! This fucktard has been free! This son of a bitch should be clapped in irons and thrown in prison. After a quick trial to prove he HAD the documents and he should be shot for treason. Hell, I'll pull the trigger!

Remember, this son of a bitch was a lobbyist/lawyer for the People's Republic of CHINA! And while he was NSA, the Chinese were finally able to miniaturize their warheads and put them on multiple re-entry vehicles!

Oh, I'm not done. As you recall from reading the news, the DNC is whining that this was a plot by the Republicans to bring this up just before the Democratic Convention. News editors and media types are decrying the alleged "leak" and looking for conspiracies in every corner. Yet this is the same media that LIVES on leaks and loves to find leakers that will give them information to make the President or his administration look bad.

But when the leak makes the Dummycraps look bad, well, that's another story.

How about this for a possible scenario? That the leak was done by a Dummycrap in order to defuse the situation prior to the heart of the campaign season? Rumors are flying that Lanny Davis, one of Clinton's advisors may have leaked the story and when asked point blank (2 times) on the Linda Chavez radio show did not answer the question.

Ask yourselves this: if Berger was under investigation for 6 months why did he wait until now to resign from The Poodle's campaign?

GODDAMMIT I AM PISSED!

Last weekend I commented to a friend, "you know, I get so pissed off when I see what is going on and it drives my blood pressure up. I know it is not good for me. Then I think, what's the use? Why am I getting worked up? But then am reminded about how if Kerry gets elected, we will begin to see the coming destruction of our country. So I will continue to rant. But if Kerry wins, I'm tossing in the towel. It's not worth it. I will find something else to occupy my time. Take more vacations. Spend lots more of my money on women and drinking."

He then asked me, "but what about your son and your grandchild?"

I told him, "hey, if it gets to the point that Kerry wins, there is nothing I can do. NOTHING. I WILL BE POWERLESS! Not even at the local level will I be able to be effective because unless we are secure in this country from terrorism and the fanaticism of Islam, anything done at local levels will be subverted and overruled by federal mandates PLUS the economic upheaval caused by further terrorist activities won't much matter any more. My son and his generation will have to fight this battle. It will be a battle for their very lives and existence. In 8 years I'll be in my 60s. My life will be near an end. I did all I could."

Americans have got to realize we are engaged in a war for the future of the United States. If Kerry wins, chances are he'll get the Senate, too. Then it will be 8 years of cowering to terrorists while they infiltrate our country and use corrupt trial attorneys to strip us of our rights to defend ourselves.

For more on how Democrats fight dirty (and great ideas for Republicans to start fighting back) read this piece by Mona Charen.

OK, I am beginning to ramble. I will stop now.

I need a drink.

Da Balloons, Boss!  Da Balloons!!

There is no way I could have either watched or listened to the bullshit and tripe coming out the Democratic Convention the past 4 days but at the closing last night, the balloons did not come down as quickly as was expected.

Thanks to Neal Boortz, here's his take on what happened:
Gotta love it when something like this happens. Last night, after The Poodle finished his speech in Boston, just like past conventions, they were supposed to release balloons in the Fleet Center. Apparently there was some miscommunication, because it wasn't happening fast enough for Convention Director Don Mischer who was captured live on CNN saying the following:

"We need all of them coming down. Go balloons- balloons? What's happening balloons? There's not enough coming down! All balloons, what the hell! There's nothing falling! What the f---- are you guys doing up there? (emphasis mine) We want more balloons coming down, more balloons. More balloons. More balloons..."

CNN apologized, and another DNC official tried to save face by saying they planned it that way, that they wanted the balloons released slowly so that they lasted a long time. Suuure...if that were the case, I think the convention director would have known. My goodness! If they're going to lie about a balloon drop ... where does it go from there?

Somebody was asleep at the switch...must've been a couple of union guys. "

Good point, that---if they were to be released slowly why didn't balloon boy know about it?

Just another lie, folks. More of the same thing we know them to be famous for. And if they lie about balloons how can we trust these pieces of shit with the safety and security of our nation?

Scandal in Scandanavia

The liberal socialist paradise called Norway, which is considered to be the best place on EARTH to live (let's see: snow and cold 9 months of the year; 2 weeks where temps MIGHT get to 72, the remainder is rain, rain, rain; tax rates that'd make you blanche; dentist bills having gone up over 3 times more than everything else in the past 9 years; a haven to Muslims----yep, that's where I want to live!), is back on BMEWS. And yes, we are bemused at this.

Remember last week I posted that Norwegians were trying to ban Islam? Well, that probably won't work now because they've passed a law saying that any ads about anti-terrorism measures is considered illegal!!!

Why? They'd be considered "political!" What a bunch of fucking fruitcakes!

To help explain why this country is falling into "fruitcake-dom" we have this lovely little piece (registration may be required) with such great quotes as:
"We have become a nation of whiners. Everything is wrong, yet we are living in the best country in the world. People complain and complain - because we have everything."

Hmmm, sounds like Americans to me!
"The country's bedrock work ethic is caving in. Like the overindulged children of newly minted millionaires, Norwegians now stay home from work at a rate that is the highest in Europe, outdoing even the former titleholder, Sweden."

Remind anyone of welfare? Yep! The discovery of oil in Norway has turned the country into a bunch of welfare queens.
"On an average day, about 25 percent of Norway's workers are absent from work, either because they have called in sick, are undergoing rehabilitation or are on long-term disability. The rate is especially high among government employees, who account for half the work force."

Did you catch that? The line about the rates of government employees? Remind anyone of your local government workers or DMV types?

Want to know why they got selected as the best place to live? They DON'T WORK!
"The average amount of time people were absent from work in Norway in 2002, not including vacations, was 4.8 weeks. Throw in vacation time (five weeks for most people), national paid holidays (11 per year) and weekends, and Norwegians take off nearly half the calendar year, about 170 days, a figure that does not include time off for disability and rehabilitation."

You'd think they'd do something about all the people calling in sick, eh?? Not really!
"Most people who take sick leave receive 100 percent of their pay for a year, though the level dips to 60 percent in the second year under a job rehabilitation program."

Ah, yes, a veritable workers' paradise---soon to come to a screeching halt from lack of productivity and loss of work ethic. Of course, before Norway collapses under the weight of its own laziness, the French will look at this and say it's an example to be emulated as it gives workers more "creative freedom" for personal expression and allows them to discover their inner "self." And it will spread to the rest of Europe whereupon which, that whole part of the world will be nothing but a welfare haven, all flocking to come to the US.

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.
