Just when does a child become an adult?

My flippant answer is that liberals never become adults. The crap life throws at you is always someone else’s fault, and someone else’s responsibility.

Case in point: The new Ohio healthcare law:

A new Ohio law says employers offering health insurance must allow employees the opportunity to purchase coverage for their children up to age 28.

Age 28? Do you know what all I had done by age 28? I’d been through 2+ years of college, served 6 years active duty in the US Navy, been honorably discharged, and was currently working at a dance studio where I taught the lady who became my wife. Mom & Dad did not support me at all during those years.

(During college I came home for summer. Parents didn’t actually charge me rent or anything, but I was expected to contribute to the groceries, and do the chores I’d always done. But I was NOT on their medical insurance anymore. I also had to accumulate enough money for books, incidentals, etc, for the next semester. In 1980, the Carter recession made that impossible so I enlisted.)

I’m appalled. Just when do we quit coddling young people and treating them like children?

Please note: currently the law says must allow parents… Won’t be long before that becomes parents must buy…

After all, it’s for the children.

Revolt in 2010

Sounds like a Heinlein novel. He actually wrote one titled ‘Revolt in 2100’. Guess we’re 90 years early.

Harperson on the march again. Vegans to get discrimination rights along with teatotalers & atheists

I had no idea, not even a clue, that this particular grouping of people had problems of discrimination.  Vegetarians? Tea drinkers? Atheists? What next?
Naval ship’s captains? Jeesh.

One commenter in The Times wrote, Vegan...an old Native American word meaning poor hunter. LOL

batbatbat I’m just guessing here but I’d say Ms Harperson deserves a few bats to add to the colony she already has in her belfry. 

Gee and to think. All those many youthful years and I was the victim of discrimination without ever knowing I was.  Who do I sue?  Says here that it’s unlawful for example to have ladies nights where they save money but men do not.  So I’m a past victim.  You too. Oh what a hard life and oh how unfair. Hey, how about we men demand restitution for all the extra money we spent while the ladies got into clubs for free. There ya go. We demand money and oh yeah. A sincere and heartfelt apology from all women.  Oh boy. This should be fun. 

From The Sunday Times

Don’t mock my lentils: vegans to get discrimination rights

Marie Woolf, Whitehall Editor

VEGANS and teetotalers are to be given the same protection against discrimination as religious groups, under legislation championed by Harriet Harman, the equalities minister.

Members of cults and “new religions” such as Scientology, whose supporters include the film stars Tom Cruise and John Travolta, would also be offered protection, as would atheists.

A code of practice explaining the legal implications of the equality bill states that religions need not be mainstream or well known for their adherents to gain protection. “A belief need not include faith or worship of a god or gods, but must affect how a person lives their life or perceives the world.”

The code, drawn up by the Equality and Human Rights Commission, singles out vegans, who do not eat any animal products or wear leather, as meriting protection from religious discrimination. It says: “A person who is a vegan chooses not to use or consume animal products of any kind. That person eschews the exploitation of animals for food, clothing, accessories or any other purpose and does so out of an ethical commitment to animal welfare.”

A spokesman from the commission explained: “This is about someone for whom being vegan or vegetarian is central to who they are. This is not something ‘thought up by the commission’. Parliament makes the law, the courts interpret it and the commission offers factual and proportionate guidance to organisations where necessary. We are providing guidance on the implications of the equality bill.”

The legislation also covers “any religious belief or philosophical belief” and even “a lack of belief”.

Philosophical beliefs to be protected could include humanism and pacifism, but a spokesman for Harman said scientific or political beliefs such as Marxism and fascism would not be covered. The commission added that the recently founded International Church of Jediism, with 500,000 followers worldwide who base their philosophy on the Star Wars films, would not qualify. Beliefs had to be heartfelt.

The watchdog also warns that advertisements giving preferential treatment to men or women could be illegal. This could mean the end of “ladies’ nights” at clubs, when women receive cut-price drinks or free entrance but men pay full price.

People for whom abstention from alcohol was a way of life would also be protected. Conversely, the bill would make it unlawful for a shopkeeper to refuse to sell cigarettes to a woman because she was pregnant.

Head teachers will be forced to list children as young as five on school ‘hate registers.

Nobody likes a school bully and certainly they should be put in their place. Like on the ground with someone’s foot on their throat.
But this isn’t that.  There isn’t any bully involved here unless it’s the bullying nanny state.  Nanny is going to extremes now with what is and isn’t proper for school kids to say or call one another at play or in argument.  Small kids.
Here, take a peek.

Pupils aged five on hate register: Teachers must log playground taunts for Government database

By Ryan Kisiel and Steve Doughty
Daily Mail

Head teachers will be forced to list children as young as five on school ‘hate registers’ over everyday playground insults.

image

Even minor incidents must be recorded as examples of serious bullying and details kept on a database until the pupil leaves secondary school.

Teachers are to be told that even if a primary school child uses homophobic or racist words without knowing their meaning, simply teaching them such words are hurtful and inappropriate is not enough.

Instead the incident has to be recorded and his or her behaviour monitored for future signs of ‘hate’ bullying.

The accusations will also be recorded in databases held by councils and made available to Whitehall and ministers to help them devise future anti-bullying campaigns.

The scale of the effort to stop children using homophobic or racist language was revealed after the parents of a ten-year-old primary school pupil in Somerset, Peter Drury, were told that his name would be put on a register and his behaviour monitored while he remained at school.

The boy was reported after he called a friend ‘gay boy’. His parents fear the record of homophobic bullying will count against him throughout his school career and even into adulthood.

In another incident last year a six-year-old girl, Sharona Gower, was reported for ‘racist bullying’ at her school near Tunbridge Wells in Kent.

Sharona was chased by two 11-year-old girls, one of whom taunted her that she had chocolate on her face.

The six-year-old responded to one of the girls, who was black: ‘Well, you’ve got chocolate on yours.’

Many schools nationwide have already followed advice that they should record incidents of alleged racist, homophobic or anti-disability bullying.

SOURCE FOR MORE

We had a kid in our class once called ‘Stinky’ coz generally he did.  It was stuff he put in his hair.  It had an odor till the teach told him in front of the class that he couldn’t come to school like that.  End of funny smell but we continued to call him stinky. Nowadays no teacher would say that out loud and I guess our whole class, or those who called him stinky anyway, I guess we’d end up on this hate register. With this govt., everything can be taken to be a hate crime.

THE POPE AND HARRIET HARPERSON

More on the pope because .... 

I find it supremely interesting that while the pope is speaking about the religious rights of Christains and of course his own flock, the homosexual tide along with their allies are threatening to swamp his visit with protests and in fact want to have him banned.  What bloody cheek.
Where are the four thousand the protest groups say they will raise, when it comes to muslims taking to the streets or these unholy islamic preachers spewing hate and calling for sheria law in a country that does not belong to them. Where are they then?  What an easy target the pope is for these cowards.  You know damn well and probably they have already thought of it, that if they protest muslims, they are likely to get a boo-boo.  The pope on the other hand, won’t get physical.

Catholic adoption agencies will be forced to make a choice between what they believe religiously wrong, ie. adoption by same sex couples, and simply shutting their doors.  One or two it’s been reported, already have.

Lets say the pope is wrong to begin with for stating his opinion. Lets carry it further.  Let us say his position is all wrong from the getgo. He is not preaching hate.  He isn’t calling for the UK to convert to Rome. He doesn’t even call for the death of ppl who deny god.  In fact, he prays for them.  Why then should his visit be blocked by these soreheads?  These easily offended blockheads who look under their beds each night no doubt, thinking the odd one off insult might be lurking there.  BTW ... although he talks otherwise, the leader of this queer group of folks does not speak for all homosexuals.  There actually are some who agree with the pope on some major issues. 
Here’s a quote and the link to the whole very interesting editorial is HERE

First, it needs to be asked loud and clear: why would any gay people hoping to adopt children go to a Catholic agency? They don’t need to.

Rightly or wrongly, these days gay couples invariably have first place in the queue for an adopted child from state-run agencies because politically correct local authorities are attempting to make up for the years when gays were barred by the law from being adoptive parents.


Pope facing protests in Britain over his attack on Labour’s equality law

By Steve Doughty

Historians said it was the first direct intervention in British politics by a Pontiff in 300 years.

For centuries, Popes have avoided any comments on domestic politics to free British Catholics from the smear that they are loyal to a foreign power.

The National Secular Society yesterday signalled it would organise protests among gay groups, feminists, pro-abortion campaigners and victims of sexual abuse by priests.

‘He has already indicated that he will attack equal rights and promote discrimination.’

Prominent gay rights campaigner Peter Tatchell said: ‘The Pope’s criticism is a coded attack on the legal rights granted to women and gay people.

Benedict XVI said in his lecture that the effect of some equality legislation ‘has been to impose unjust limitations on the freedom of religious communities to act in accordance-with their beliefs’.

‘In some respects it actually violates the natural law upon which the equality of all human beings is grounded and by which it is guaranteed,’ he said.

Miss Harman, in Cadiz for a conference of women’s ministers, said: ‘We have never insisted on non-discrimination legislation applying to religious jobs . . . however, when it comes to non-religious jobs, those organisations must comply with the law.’

more at the source here

This loony tune so badly wants EVERYONE to be her idea of equal, she is demanding that city councils and other bodies have numbers of women and racial minorities in jobs even where there aren’t the numbers to support her demand. For example, a town or village somewhere that just does not have the number or perhaps no muslims or black ppl and perhaps not a lot of females interested in office. No matter.  They MUST by her lights be represented anyway. Even if it means going outside the area to find them.

Council snoopers question five-year-olds on home life.  Big brother is watching you.

I really can’t think of anything to say here. Looks scary.

Council snoopers question five-year-olds on home life

By Sophie Borland

Children as young as five are being told to fill in Big Brother-style forms which let councils snoop on intimate details about their home lives.

The questions - which have been attacked as exploitative - ask about junk food, television habits, family time and even whether the youngsters ‘like themselves’.

Results are stored on a database, allowing families deemed to be ‘at risk’ to be referred to social services or doctors.

Children are asked to colour in answers to questions such as how much fruit they eat each day compared to crisps and fizzy drinks.

Hundreds of the ‘lifestyle’ quizzes, which are backed by the Department of Health, have been handed out in an attempt to build a picture of the health and wellbeing of individual households.

But privacy campaigners last night condemned the forms. Alex Deane, of Big Brother Watch, described it as ‘an unbelievable intrusion into private life’.

He said: ‘The state doesn’t bring up children, parents do. There is an important distinction between teaching and nannying - or even bullying - and this steps way over the mark.’

The lifestyle quizzes were piloted in Erewash, Derbyshire, where children filled in the forms at ‘healthy living’ after-school clubs, to which parents are invited.

Although the survey was not compulsory, pupils were strongly encouraged to fill it in.

I think I have invented a new position here at BMEWS.  An Anger Desk. Yeah. That’s me ok.

I may even enter a new category for it. 

I don’t know about you folks, but I just happen to like Kelloggs Corn Flakes.  I don’t give a tinkers damn how much salt or sugar they put in it.
I like it the way comes outta that box just fine.  Oh but no.  The freeken health nazis and other we’ll do your choosing for you health quangos have pressured Kelloggs to reduce the salt content by another 30 percent.  They also say some 14,000 ppl have died due to high blood pressure, strokes and heart attacks etc.  But they don’t say what else those folks had in their diets. Anyway, it’s 14,000 out of how many millions upon millions who have no trouble whatever. So I’m PO’d again coz I hate it when some unelected group of do-gooders insist I eat grass and bark instead of what I like.

Kelloggs says that over years it has already reduced sugar and salt by a lot but only gradually so ppl wouldn’t noticed a sudden change in taste. That way they say, ppl get used to the change without even knowing a change ha taken place and the product will still taste the same.  Pretty clever.

Recently, Nescafe altered a recipe for our own good. Right. All the things that gave it flavor were reduced.  The taste difference was immediate and very bland. So we stopped buying it. Even tho the label assured us that it was, “New and Improved.” Yeah. In a pigs ass it was.

I guess the thing that bothers me so darn much is that so many things these days seem to be decided for me. And nobody asked first.


Kellogg’s to cut the salt in its cereals by a third following pressure from health watchdogs

By Sean Poulter

Kellogg’s will cut the salt content of its Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies and other brands by up to a third following pressure from health watchdogs.

The company has previously delayed the reduction of salt levels, claiming customers enjoy the taste it offers.

However, it has now bowed to pressure from the Government’s Food Standards Agency and campaigning health groups to change its recipes.

The FSA says the nation is eating too much salt, which carries a serious health threat.

Average daily salt consumption is 8.6g, which is 43 per cent above the recommended limit of 6g.

The figure is linked to 14,200 premature deaths a year from conditions linked to high blood pressure, including strokes and heart attacks.

Kellogg’s said its decision will remove approximately 300 tons of salt a year from the nation’s diet.

The decision to cut the salt in Corn Flakes and Rice Krispies by 30 per cent will feed through to reductions in other big-selling brands such as Crunchy Nut, Frosties, Coco Pops and Rice Krispies Squares.

Here’s what two people commenting on the subject had to say.

I don’t recall ever voting for ‘Consensus Action on Salt and Health’. What consensus? I’m sure I’m far from alone in disagreeing with their ‘consensus’, which rather undermines the meaning of the word, doesn’t it? No doubt like the National Obesity Forum this lot will turn out to be 70% funded by Whitehall, making them essentially a Govt department in all but socially-responsibly Orwellian-sounding name.

Why not just provide an alternative version and leave the original alone? A sad day for democracy when I now don’t even have a choice over what I want to eat.

EXACTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am fed up of being told what I can have and what not - I am an adult, I can read labels and I can make decision on my own!!

Holland … a place where your observations about a particular religion lands you in court.

Personally, I think Wilders is a hero.  His mistake, if you want to call it that, was to be openly critical of the ROP.
This is the man who for a time was denied entry to Britain because of his outspoken views.  Everyone and including the Dutch apparently, tip toe around muzzies and their religion like they’re walking on eggshells.  I guess they are. But there is a solution to this insidious problem. 

This is a VERY long article found at European News, and so I’ve cut it and the whole thing is at the link below.

The Wilders trial: Torquemada would be proud

International Free Press Society
By Arthur Legger

Any one who still claims that the trial against Geert Wilders MP, leader of the Party for Freedom (9 seats in Parliament and 27 in the polls), which starts on the 20th of January, is not a political process: get a grip.

Accused by the Dutch ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ exactly a year ago for insulting Islam, comparing the Koran to Mein Kampf and delivering hate speeches, the coming trial against Wilders suddenly got a Kafkaesque and potentially murderous twist. Finally, seven days before his first day in Court, all fangs were out and faces off.


“It is irrelevant whether Wilder’s witnesses might prove Wilders’ observations to be correct”, the ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ stated, “what’s relevant is that his observations are illegal”.

(So it’s come to that has it?  The freedom loving Dutch govt. can now prosecute (and persecute) a person for their “observations.")

Unexpected and breaching court procedures the detailed indictment of 21 pages, which Wilders received on the 4th of December and sums up in verbatim all of his Islam and Koran critique in interviews and Fitna, was amended with new accusations of racism against muslims and Moroccans. On top of this, Paul Vellerman, the public prosecutor of the Amsterdam Court decided that the Wilders trial had to be regarded as “an ordinary trial open for public and with a normal procedure, which doesn’t deserve the Department of Justice’s highly secured bunker. His is a normal case and we’ll treat it as such”.

It’s sad to note that Mohammed Bouyeri, the murderer of Theo van Gogh, and Volkert van der Gaag, the assassin of Pim Fortuyn, were tried in this specially designed bunker, but that Wilders has to rely on his personal bodyguards and full metal jacket to ward of terrorists. No safe room for him, which recently secured Kurt Westergaard and his granddaughter, but for months on end the vulnerability of a sitting duck.

The demonized Fortuyn

To a connoisseur of the classic art of Dutch political murder, revived in 2002 with the assassination of the deliberatedly unprotected and demonized Pim Fortuyn, this twist of fate comes, however, as no surprise. The ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ had to do something. Presented with much aplomb in January, already on the 10th of March it turned out that the case against Wilders had one crucial weak spot: it might not hold in Court.

For in a comparable case the Dutch High Court acquitted a Dutchman of his earlier conviction of ‘Group-insult’ of Muslims. He had been sentenced to jail for hanging a poster in front of his window that stated: “Stop the cancerous growth named Islam”. The High Court ruled that “if one insults a religion, one doesn’t automatically insult its believers”.

Gerard Spong, one of the lawyers who lodged complaints against Wilders, was quick to stress, however, that the case against an MP was far more complex than a poster: “Wilders is certainly not off the hook”. But to most professors in Law the High Court ruling proved that Wilders would win with his hands down. Ybo Buruma, a highly influential professor in Criminal Law at Nijmegen University concluded on the 11th of January 2010 that “the prosecution of Geert Wilders is a very nice exercise, but is utterly pointless for it will not lead to a conviction”.

Traditionally with such a High Court ruling and severe scholarly critique the ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ wouldn’t fail to reconsider and dismiss charges. But already a year ago the Wall Street Journal had immediately grasped that “Muslim-immigration [was] eroding traditional Dutch liberties”, forcing Dutch Law into a radically new course of censorship. Observing that Wilders’ critique of Islam outraged muslims around the globe, the Journal chided: “If freedom of speech means anything, it means the freedom of controversial speech. Consensus views need no protection”.

The Wall Street Journal must have been either clairvoyant or hysterically well informed: Paul Vellerman, Amsterdam’s Court public prosecutor, and Birgit van Roessel, the Court’s second public prosecutor, who’re both heading the trial against Wilders, also both are working for the National Expertise Centre Discrimination. This Centre is the leading organization of the ‘Openbaar Ministerie’ to track down “crimes of expression and speech”. The Centre was responsible for lodging complaints against cartoonist Gregorius Nekschot.

One doc calls for butter ban, and other experts want guys to have lessons in breast feeding.

There’s a doctor here with a foreign looking name I can’t pronounce.  I was going to post his story under a Moonbatbat heading cause I thought it smacked of nanny-ism.
He wants a national ban on butter because of the health issue.  Butter = Heart Attacks he says.  Sure. Maybe so. Provided you’re eating nothing but and gobs of it at that. But his idea is so typical of the times we are in it’s scary. However ..... I found this bit of silliness and thought it more worthy of a post.  What’s next?

Fathers-to-be will get lessons on breastfeeding and supporting partner through childbirth

By Kirsty Walker
Last updated at 2:34 PM on 18th January 2010

Fathers-to-be are to be given lessons on breastfeeding and supporting their partner through childbirth, ministers will announce this week.

A long-awaited families green paper will propose measures to get fathers more involved in their child’s upbringing from before birth and beyond.

These include forcing single mothers to name the biological father on the birth certificate and encouraging hospitals to allow fathers to stay overnight after the birth of a child.

The paper is aimed at seizing the initiative from David Cameron, who has made tackling family breakdown a flagship policy.

The Tory leader has repeatedly called for fathers to be more closely involved with their children and has attacked ‘deadbeat dads’ for abandoning their responsibilities.

Under Labour, the number of unmarried couples living together has shot up by two thirds and the number of single parent families has risen by 8 per cent.

But Labour now wants to counter criticism that it has been too focused on mothers’ rights by putting fatherhood at the centre of its social policy.

As well as being offered more access to ante-natal lessons from midwives and health visitors, every new father will be given a ‘New Dad’s Guide’ that will include an explanation of breastfeeding and tips on supporting their partner.

It follows research that shows mothers are twice as likely to continue breastfeeding if their partners have had a one-hour lesson before the birth about its benefits.

And studies reveal that fathers involved at birth are far more likely to stay involved in the first three years, and on through childhood and adolescence.

Around 45,000 children are registered in Britain every year without the name of their father.

From next year fathers who refuse to be named on the birth certificate or mothers who do not record the father’s name will be liable for a £200 fine.

Don’t get me wrong now.  I believe it’s good to help your wife or partner through that experience, provided they want you there.
But heck.  Breastfeeding lessons for guys?
Is that what’s been missing from fatherhood for the last thousand years?

I let the darndest things annoy me. Thing is, I find it impossible to tolerate the warmists.

OUR LIFESTYLES ARE KILLING PEOPLE IN AFRICA AND ASIA

So says this ridiculous idiot devotee of the new church of green.

He says the inconvenient truth is that our lifestyles are indeed killing other people.
Yeah? Well maybe they’re overpopulated anyway and frankly you flake, I don’t give a damn!

I won’t copy his entire letter, too damn much there and sorry there isn’t a link to it. It’s a letter to the editor and those folks printed this utter balderdash.

He says,

It is in African countries like Kenya and Asian countries like Bangladesh, that people are dying prematurely as a direct result of of climate change from greenhouse gas emissions of the people in developed counties.

The damn fool goes on:
Reductions in the greenhouse gas emissions resulting from the lifestyles and consumption patterns are the cause and that,

It is now widely understood that that the sooner cuts in emissions are made, the lower the costs of moving to a low carbon society are likely to prove to be.

The stupid idiot then gives this address:
http://www.winacc.org.uk and he btw is the chairman of The Winchester Action on Climate Change.

He says of our recent severe snow storm and cold snap that “global warming does not abolish winter. “ Maybe not but it sure was colder this year then last and last year was NOT warm either.
He wants us all to reduce our “carbon footprints” sooner, not later.  Screw him.  I want HIM to CONSERVE so there will be MORE for ME.

He also doesn’t think that Hampshire (our county) residents are doing the right thing fast enough.

Inconvenient truth is, they should not be doing anything at all.

OK so I read his damn letter and the more I thought about it the more frustrated I got because he assumes he has the word from on high and with evangelistic zeal he expects everyone to fall into line.  In spite of the recent comments by other scientists that say the issue is NOT closed.

So I wrote this.


GORE’S GREEN LACKEYS

This little island and people like Mr. Robert Hutchison of WinCAA , believe they are going to save the planet as they rush to bend the knee to their new religion, The Holy Church of Climate Change and Global Warming.
The silly extremes they go to as they genuflect before pope bore and the new faith and what they achieve, amount to no more then a flea on an elephant’s ass, though they would have us believe otherwise.

It is delusional to think that the vast majority of people throughout Europe and the UK, all buy into every edict demanded by the grasping self congratulatory powers that be .  Many of those who feel that not everything is exactly right and do their bit i.e. recycling etc, do not buy into the doomsday scenario as preached by the new church and Robert H.

A full year before the EU dictated that all member states must stop manufacture and sales of those old nice bright 100watt light bulbs, millions of people started buying and hoarding them.  Even that most politically correct and green loving state, Germany, led Europe in the rush to collect the old and more favored light bulb in spite of the opposition of Gore’s Green Lackeys in that country.  Clearly, a majority of the people prefer the older type but majorities do not matter much in the new age of the green and pc world dictatorship.

Meanwhile back in happy slap, binge drunk England, a newspaper called The Daily Mail, which is a conservative paper, started a silly campaign to ban plastic shopping bags.  One village has already happily announced to the world that they are, “Plastic Bag Free,” Mein Fuehrer, to the applause of The Mail who proudly announce victory in our time, over plastic.  Ignoring of course that these bags are 100% degradable.
However, it is very important to show the few fanatical faithful who dominate the majority, their religious devotion to the new church.

Following in the path of the paper, and in an effort to increase their profit margins, many a business is making a public display of their conversion to the new faith.

Back at the ranch however, manufacturers continue to package their products in impossibly difficult to open non-degradable multiple plastic.
But hey, who’s looking at that?

Teach Your Children Well

The Playmobil Security Checkpoint

Playmobil toys depict real-life settings, and not always cheery ones, like a police station, hospital and animal clinic. But one, the Security Check Point, took that philosophy too far for some parents.

The set — which includes armed airport security officers, a metal detector and an X-ray screening machine — has drawn nearly 50 biting customer reviews, and scores of comments to those reviews, on Amazon dot com.

“The whole premise behind Playmobil toys is to familiarize the child with the realities of life through play,” Ms. Winfrey said. “If you’re taking a child for a first flight to Florida from New Jersey to visit grandparents, you say, ‘This is what the terminal looks like, and when we get here we have to take our shoes off and walk though security.”

“When you think about toys, the last thing you’d think someone would create is the most miserable traveling experience you could have,” said Mr. Sack, who shares his Playmobil collection with his sons, ages 2 and 4 (and who confirmed that the traveler’s shoes in the set are not removable). “It’s like having a tax collector toy — for my first audit.”

I wonder if Playmobil has a UK add-on for their Happy Town playset that allows kids to put a CCTV camera on every corner?

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.
