Rosie Exits, Stage Left

If you look in the dictionary under “lard-ass lesbo losers” you will find a picture of ... Never mind. Please overlook my mood today. I’m having too much fun comparing famous moonbats to the animals they resemble, both physically and mentally. Now, for today’s contest: which bloated mammal pictured below deserves to have a daytime TV show? Keep in mind how successful “Flipper” was ....

Rosie O’Donnell Decided to Leave ‘View’
When Walters Failed to Defend Her Against Trump

(FOX NEWS) - Wednesday, April 25, 2007

We told you on Jan. 10: Rosie O’Donnell would leave “The View.” Her announcement this morning has nothing to do with contract negotiations breaking down. ABC did not end Rosie’s “View.” Rosie ended it.

And don’t believe the spin that ABC was mad at her for comments made at the Matrix luncheon on Monday. Rosie was finished with “The View” over the Christmas holiday when Barbara Walters failed to defend her against Donald Trump.

In fact, it was worse than that: When O’Donnell discovered that Walters had bad-mouthed her to Trump, she decided to leave the show. It was that simple.

ABC, in fact, wanted O’Donnell to stay with the show. They offered her, as she said on the air, a three-year contract. She refused to sign. Rosie said she’d stay for a year, and this is what you don’t know: She wanted $10 million to do so.

ABC did not turn down the money. They turned down the one-year part. They wanted stability. They would have paid her something like $30 million to sign for three years. That’s how much they wanted her. She was the future of “The View.”

Show Ho No Mo

Al Sharpton ought to be real happy now. Thanks to him and Jesse Jackson another white boy joins the unemployment line. The really odd thing about all this is that even though Imus occasionally had Republicans like John McCain on his show, he was definitely a Liberal and as such is the only competition Liberals every had for Rush, O’Reilly, Hannity, Savage and the other Conservatives who dominate talk radio. Sooner or later the moonbats are going to wake up and figure out that they just shot themselves in the foot on this one. Bwah-hah-hah-ha-ha-ha-ha ....

CBS DUMPS IMUS PRODUCER FOR ‘HO’ NO-NO
(NY POST) - April 21, 2007

imageimageDon Imus’ producer has joined his former boss on the unemployment line. Bernard McGuirk was officially canned late Thursday by CBS Radio - a week after Imus was axed by CBS and NBC over his racial insults leveled at the Rutgers women’s basketball team.

McGuirk, who produced Imus’ syndicated radio show - which was simulcast on NBC-owned MSNBC - began the mockery of the players as “ho’s” on an April 4 broadcast.

Imus took up the nasty theme and referred to the hoopsters as “nappy-headed ho’s” - a comment that led to his firing on April 12. McGuirk, who also booked guests for Imus’ show, disappeared from sight after the Imus firing and hasn’t been on the air since.

Charles McCord, who read the news on Imus’ show, continues to appear on WFAN in the mornings. CBS Radio spokeswoman Karen Mateo told The Associated Press that no decision has been made on who will replace Imus on a permanent basis.

WFAN’s afternoon team, Mike Francesca and “Mad Dog” Chris Russo, have been filling in on the morning shift, then returning in the afternoon for their regular slot. They’re scheduled to fill in one more week in the morning.

Imus has said publicly he’s already received other job offers, but that he’ll spend the summer at his ranch before making any decisions about his future. Along with Howard Stern and Rush Limbaugh, Imus was one of the highest-paid radio personalities in the industry.

Meanwhile, Imus has hired powerful attorney Martin Garbus, Business Week magazine reports. A brief sentence yesterday on Garbus’ personal blog noted that he “represents Don Imus in a dispute with CBS” - a sentence later re moved from the site.

Recount

What can you say about a story like this? I’m sorry, I can’t think of a single thing to say - even if I could stop laughing and giggling insanely long enough to think or speak. The level of hypocrisy here is beyond my ability to measure - or understand. It must be this February heat wave (28°F outside in St. Louis this fine morning) getting to me, I suppose. Either way, I need a t-shirt with “Al Gore Melts Glaciers - Somebody Stop Him!” across the front. I’ll let you good folks decide what we need to put on the back ...

Al Gore’s Personal Energy Use Is His Own “Inconvenient Truth”
Gore’s home uses more than 20 times the national average
(Tennessee Center for Policy Research) - February 26, 2007

imageimageLast night, Al Gore’s global-warming documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, collected an Oscar for best documentary feature, but the Tennessee Center for Policy Research has found that Gore deserves a gold statue for hypocrisy.

Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES).

In his documentary, the former Vice President calls on Americans to conserve energy by reducing electricity consumption at home.

The average household in America consumes 10,656 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year, according to the Department of Energy. In 2006, Gore devoured nearly 221,000 kWh—more than 20 times the national average.

Last August alone, Gore burned through 22,619 kWh—guzzling more than twice the electricity in one month than an average American family uses in an entire year. As a result of his energy consumption, Gore’s average monthly electric bill topped $1,359.

Since the release of An Inconvenient Truth, Gore’s energy consumption has increased from an average of 16,200 kWh per month in 2005, to 18,400 kWh per month in 2006.

Gore’s extravagant energy use does not stop at his electric bill. Natural gas bills for Gore’s mansion and guest house averaged $1,080 per month last year.

“As the spokesman of choice for the global warming movement, Al Gore has to be willing to walk the walk, not just talk the talk, when it comes to home energy use,” said Tennessee Center for Policy Research President Drew Johnson.

In total, Gore paid nearly $30,000 in combined electricity and natural gas bills for his Nashville estate in 2006.

Hollywood Hustle

Get ready. In just a few hours you will witness the ultimate public masturbation event. Everyone who is anyone in Hollywood is even now primping, adjusting, fidgeting, sweating and applying five layers of makeup and thousands of dollars worth of designer clothes ... all this in preparation for the annual awards these pompous asses give themselves every year.

The shindig starts on ABC at 5:00PT/8:00ET and will finally wind down well after midnight in eastern parts of the country as the celebrats gather their trophies and adjourn to the private parties where champagne and cocaine flow in abundance - there to pat the winners on the back over a toast ( or a snort) or shed crocodile tears with the losers.

I may watch the first hour just out of curiosity but that’s about as far as my attention span is good for these days. Besides, I hate watching people praise themselves for an acting job that really sucked but earned them an award thanks to studio politics, arm twisting and trade magazine hype. In other words, it’s just too dang phony for me. Sorry.

The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences (AMPAS) does do a lot of good work restoring old motion pictures (back when they made good movies with real actors) and there are an awful lot of good people behind the cameras working their butts off to make the stars look good.

To all the sound men, lighting men, grips, extras, stand-ins, stuntmen, cameramen and all the rest of the “average working men and women” behind the scenes, I offer my congratulations for a job well done in making movies more real and fun. Now if we only could find decent actors, writers and producers we’d be in business.

Oh, almost forgot. Let’s lose the politics and activist agendas that permeate everything coming out of Hollywood nowadays. Give us some entertainment. The vast movie-going public couldn’t give a rat’s ass about environmental concerns, liberals vs. conservatives, the justification for war or the plight of homosexuals when we plunk down $8 for a ticket.

We want to get away from all that for a few hours. Entertain us. Don’t try to indoctrinate us. We might buy more movie tickets if Hollywood would just make us forget our troubles for a little while and take us away to someplace we’ve never been before - not have our noses rubbed in every problem in the world. The world and those problems will still be there when the popcorn is gone and we emerge from a theater back into reality.

With that said, I will now descend from my soap box and offer you my picks for tonight’s Oscars©. I’ve watched most of this year’s crop either at the theater or on DVD. I cried at “United 93”, was shocked and amazed at “Last King Of Scotland”, deeply touched by “Flags Of Our Fathers”, highly entertained by “The Departed”, swept off my feet in amazement watching “Apocalypto” and almost bored to tears with “The Queen” (which did have good acting though). I haven’t seen “An Inconvenient Truth”. Don’t plan to. My bullshit meter is already pegged for the week. Enjoy!

Attention Span Hyper Disorder (ASHD)

As far as the Celebrity Death Spiral Race is going, Anna Nicole Smith is now officially out of the running, having dropped out early. The current front-runner is Britney Spears who seems more than determined to be next to drop out. Sounds ghoulish, don’t it?

Yet we eagerly sit back and watch the race continue. Who will be next? Who will dig up the juicy details? Will we ever get enough of this bullshit? Yep. Some of us have. I have to admit I lost interest in the Anna Nicole circus the day she died. I didn’t know her personally and I’m afraid I’m one of very few men in this country who does not claim to be the father of her child.

Make no mistake, I regret her passing as I do anyone’s death but our trash voyeurism culture is just too obsessed with these celebrity flameouts. While you sit there clued to the TV set awaiting a verdict on the disposition of Anna’s body, the Mad Mullahs in Iran are plotting your demise. Do you think they will be glued to their TV’s watching every detail of our doom when a suitcase nuke goes off in New York or Los Angeles? Probably. Human nature can be a sick, twisted, morbid, ugly thing at times. As Mr. Spock would say, “Fascinating” ....

Voyeurism Unleashed
-- by Michael Reagan

imageimageListening to the Broward County, Fla. coroner warn that the still-unburied remains of the late Anna Nicole Smith were getting a bit ripe reminded me of one of Ambrose Bierce’s more notorious remarks.

Speaking of a deceased actress in whose lifetime, he noted, was famous for her composure, Bierce, 19th century journalism’s precursor of our beloved Ann Coulter, said that unfortunately, the lady was now “quite decomposed.”

I can’t help but wonder what Bierce would have said about the current media mania concerning the aftermath of Miss Smith’s death, the disposal of her body, and the identity of the father of her last child.

How would he have reacted to the endless television coverage of the trial which is supposed to resolve the question of who will gain possession of her body before it falls apart? And what about the proceeding morphing into a showcase for the dramatic talents of the trial judge, who appears to lust after a career as a male Judge Judy and is accused of using the trial as a screen test?

“He is not as pretty as Judge Judy, but he is cut from the same tooth,’’ Vinnie Politan, co-host of Court TV’s weekday morning show “Bloom & Politan,” told The Miami Herald. “We here at Court TV love him. This is going to put him on the map, and he knows it.”

It is not too much of a reach to say that Broward County Circuit Judge Larry Seidlin has turned the proceedings into something of a circus, where he stars as the high-wire trapeze performer. Nor to note that television has encouraged his theatrics by covering the trial almost from dawn ‘til dusk.

I agree with whoever it was that said his honor is suffering from an advanced case of Itoitis, recalling the jurist in the O.J. Simpson case. Judge Seidlin, however, unlike Judge Ito, is amusing.

The endless coverage has been so intense that it has all but drowned out the comings and goings of Britney whatsername as she meanders from rehab to rehab having shorn her golden locks and tattooed the nape of her neck in what the media diagnoses as a cry for help. Previous cries, such as her refusal to don underwear and her penchant for making it obvious, have gone unheeded.

Perhaps the only person on this planet who has to be delighted by the media’s continuing focus on the question of the disposal of Miss Smith’s remains is the lovesick astronaut who has all but disappeared from America’s TV screens thanks to the circus in Broward County. Thanks to the trial, we haven’t heard a whisper lately about her having driven 900 miles wearing a diaper, which come to think about it, might suggest an alternative to the undergarments Britney can’t bring herself to wear.

I don’t think people are waking up in the morning desperate to learn what’s going on in a Broward County courtroom. I don’t think they are racing to turn on the TV to see live pictures of the judge and the other actors in this low-interest drama. I don’t think they could care less about who gets the body of a gold-digging stripper who appears to have died of the same drugs which killed her son.

If the public has any interest at all, I think it would be that somebody, anybody, get that corpse in the ground before it turns to dust. In the end, what we have it is a further example of the mass voyeurism which the TV executives think is now afflicting the nation and which they are determined to satisfy.

Today it’s Anna Nicole Smith. Tomorrow it will be some other unfortunate female celebrity—a Britney or Paris, for example—who devoted her life to an orgy of self-destruction and paid the price.

There seems to be an endless supply of them out there.

Late Night Silliness

There are two things you need to keep in mind as you read this: (1) Vince McMahon is about the most full of shit person in the entertainment industry, and (2) the match takes place on April Fools Day. Now, if McMahon could schedule a real match between The Donald and Lezbo Rosie, I’d pay good cash to watch that.

Trump’s Hair on the Line at Wrestlemania
It’ll Be Trump vs. McMahon in Hairy Battle at Wrestlemania in Detroit, Reports Say
DETROIT Feb 19, 2007 (AP)

imageimageWill Donald Trump put his hair where his mouth is?

Trump and World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon will pick a wrestler to represent them in the ring April 1 at Wrestlemania 23 at Detroit’s Ford Field, The Detroit News reported last week.

If their pick is beaten in the “Battle of the Billionaires,” the loser will get his head shaved after the match, the Detroit Free Press reported Monday.

WWE spokesman Gary Davis said the date of the event had prompted speculation that it was a hoax. But it’s not an April Fool’s Day joke, he said.

“If Trump loses, he shaves his head,” he said.

The announcement of the match was made on a WWE television program that aired over the weekend.

Who Cares?

Personally, I could care less what this dipshit dipsey-doodle does to herself but several of you have written me asking why I haven’t posted anything about it. The answer is that I have better things to do. I’ll let Drudge carry the water on crap like this. File this story under “L” for lunatic, spoiled, overpaid, over-drugged celebrities along with all the Michael Jackson crap. End of story.

imageimageBritney Spears Goes Bald
(PEOPLE) - SATURDAY FEBRUARY 17, 2007 07:00 AM EST

Britney Spears checked into a rehab facility and then abruptly checked out, a source confirms to PEOPLE. And then on Friday, she returned to Southern California – and she shaved her head completely bald.

The pop star checked herself into Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Centre in Antigua “two or three days ago” but left after just one day and headed to Florida, the source tells PEOPLE.

TV’s Extra first reported that the singer had entered a treatment facility. TMZ.com later reported that she checked out less than 24 hours later. Spears has been a nightlife fixture ever since filing for divorce from Kevin Federline in November.

On Tuesday, her former personal assistant, Felicia Culotta, wrote in a letter to Hollywood.com’s That Other Blog that Spears’s friends and family were trying to get her help, but were not having much luck.

“There’s just so much you can do to help a person,” Culotta wrote. “I cannot convince her in ANY way to love herself. ... I cannot save her from herself, nor can I commit her to any type of treatment program against her wishes and will. I am throwing my hands up and realizing that I am helpless over another.”

That was not the first sign that those around her were concerned. In January, Rudolph told USA Today that Spears realized her behavior had been harming her image. “She understands what’s going on right now, and she calls it her ‘rocky moment,’ “ he said. “Britney knows exactly what she needs to do.”

Spears herself later wrote in a letter to fans on her Web site, “If I were you I’d be unhappy too if I had to read what I’ve been reading every day. But trust me, I get it. I know I’ve been far from perfect and the media has had a lot of fun exaggerating my every move.”

Grammy Goofiness

First, a confession - I subscribe to Rolling Stone ... in spite of the Leftist, political slant the mag has taken in recent years. I just like music and there are are at least two or three pages of actual music news in each issue. Why am I telling you this? Because, to the best of my recollection, the Dixie Chicks new album only stayed on the charts for a couple of weeks last year before disappearing and never made it higher than #8.

In addition, they managed to keep pissing off enough people with their Leftist politics that concerts were canceled all across the country. So why did they walk off with all the major Grammy Awards last night? If any of you have any inside information about this, please clue me in. Is this just more of the entertainment industry’s out-of-touch, mutual back-scratching? Don’t these people ever step outside of their insulated little world and actually communicate with us little people ... ?

Dixie Chicks Earn Grammys Triumph
(BBC) - Monday, 12 February 2007, 05:13 GMT

imageimageCountry trio The Dixie Chicks have made a triumphant comeback by dominating the major honours at the Grammy Awards. The group’s five prizes come four years after they caused uproar among many US country music fans for saying they were “ashamed” of President George Bush.

Their awards included best song, record and album. The Red Hot Chili Peppers won four, while Mary J Blige won three. The ceremony was opened by reformed pop group The Police - but it was a bad night for other Brits like James Blunt.

The UK singer was up for five awards but went home empty-handed. Other British nominees like Corinne Bailey Rae, KT Tunstall and the Arctic Moneys also lost out.

The Dixie Chicks’ victory in the top three categories represents vindication for a group who were banned from many US radio stations and received death threats after making their controversial comments.

At a concert in London on the eve of the Iraq war in 2003, singer Natalie Maines told the crowd she was “ashamed” that Mr Bush came from her home state, Texas.

At the Grammy ceremony on Sunday, their single Not Ready to Make Nice - including lyrics like “I’m not ready to back down, I’m still mad as hell” - was named song of the year and record of the year. It also picked up best country performance by a duo or group.

Their haul was completed by best album as well as best country album for Taking The Long Way. “That’s interesting,” Maines said on accepting one award. “Well, to quote the great Simpsons: ‘Heh-heh.’” Bandmate Emily Robison added: “We wouldn’t have done this album without everything we went through, so we have no regrets.”

Cat Fight

The Ugly Lesbian vs. The Obnoxious Toupee. Sounds like something Vince McMahon might dream up for a WWE Smackdown event. Which is what I wish I could do to both of these idiots. Smack them down, that is.

I hate these celebrity catfights like this because I just don’t know who to root for. I really, really wish they both could lose. I guess though, if I were forced to choose, I’d have to go with “The Donald”. Why? Because he’s better looking than The Rosinater.

Rosie’s belligerent attitude has always been a big turn-off for me (plus she is just plain out FUGLY). Sure, Donald is way too full of himself but Rosie? Rosie is full of something else. Take three guesses ....

Rosie Slams Trump, The Donald Fires Back
(PEOPLE) - WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 20, 2006 05:25 PM EST

imageimageRosie O’Donnell had some fiery words for Donald Trump on The View Wednesday morning, calling him a “snake-oil salesman” following his announcement that he would not fire troubled Miss USA Tara Conner.

After hearing about her comments, Trump fired back to PEOPLE, calling her “a woman out of control” and saying he planned to sue O’Donnell over her statements questioning his financial well-being.

“You can’t make false statements,” Trump tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Rosie will rue the words she said. I’ll most likely sue her for making those false statements – and it’ll be fun. Rosie’s a loser. A real loser. I look forward to taking lots of money from my nice fat little Rosie.”

The battle began on Wednesday’s show, when a peeved O’Donnell said: “(He) left the first wife – had an affair. (He) had kids both times, but he’s the moral compass for 20-year-olds in America. Donald, sit and spin, my friend.”

O’Donnell, who impersonated Trump by deepening her voice and flipping her hair to one side, aimed her criticism at his comment from the Tuesday press conference that, “I’ve always been a believer in second chances. Tara is good person. Tara has tried hard. Tara is going to be given a second chance.”

Conner, who just turned 21, will go to rehab but keep her crown, following reports of alleged drug and alcohol abuse. A grateful Conner apologized for her behavior at the press conference, and she thanked Trump for his compassion.

But O’Donnell was not as touched. After repeatedly saying she “didn’t enjoy him,” Rosie discussed Trump’s finances – saying he went bankrupt, which Trump denies – and likened him to the “snake-oil salesman on Little House On The Prairie. This is not a self-made man,” O’Donnell said.

And while O’Donnell and her View co-hosts discussed Conner’s alleged drug and alcohol abuse, Rosie was dismissive, saying, “She went out and she was partying – doing what Paris and Lindsay do.”

She also turned her wrath toward the Miss USA organization itself. “Miss America is the prestige,” she said. “Miss USA is a different thing. It’s basically a model competition. Let’s be realistic.”

Trump’s response? “She talked about the Miss USA contest, which has terrific ratings on NBC. Miss America got thrown off of network television! It’s (on cable), where nobody watches it,” he said, countering her statements. “And my father never gave me tons of money.”

Have Another Drink

Funny: Danny DeVito. Ridiculous: Danny DeVito drunk. Really tacky: Danny DeVito drunk on TV. Barking Moonbat candidate: Danny DeVito drunk on TV cussing and bashing Bush (with help from Rosie O’Donnell).

Is there a law somewhere that states that all celebrities must stay drunk and be cursing mad at someone. Me, I prefer staying sober while I’m bashing the bejeezus out of someone. I keeps me mouth shut when falling down drunk - something Michael Richards, Mel Gibson, Nick Nolte ... and Danny DeVito need to consider.

Babs Is Finally Happy

OK, show of hands here. How many of you would pay $750 to watch this fugly woman try to sing and drown you with liberal, Democratic Party propaganda at the same time? Of course none of you raised your hands because most of you work hard for a living and need the dough for things that matter. Babs doesn’t matter. Unless you’re a rich Liberal with too much free time and too much money and a desire to be seen with all the “right people”.

I for one am glad Babs is happy now. I don’t expect her to shut up and quit complaining but the noise may die down a little. Come to think of it, having the Donks in control for the next two years could be a good thing. The rest of us can get a little peace and quiet for a brief time. That would make us the “luckiest people in the whole, wide world.” Enjoy it while you can, folks ....

Streisand Basks In “Happy Days” After Dems Victory
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Tue Nov 21, 2006 4:32pm ET140

Barbara Streisand ended her latest farewell tour on Monday at a celebrity-studded Los Angeles love-in that included incoming Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi among the thousands of rapt fans.

About 20,000 people, who each paid up to $750 per ticket, packed the Staples Center to welcome the 64-year-old singer back to her adopted hometown, ending a 16-city North American tour that began on October 4 in Philadelphia. The concert was filled with political overtones as Streisand, a longtime liberal activist, introduced Pelosi to a standing ovation.

Taking note of the recent Democratic takeover of both houses of Congress, Streisand said, “My depression is over.” She ended her two-hour-plus performance with a version of the Depression-era Democratic Party anthem “Happy Days Are Here Again.”

Other notables in the audience included singer Barry Manilow, producer Quincy Jones, actors Ben Stiller and Rob Lowe and comedians Cheech Marin and Bill Maher. The sellout tour endured a few hiccups along the way, thanks to a skit in which she mocks her nemesis, President George W. Bush, by bringing out a Bush impersonator.

After a New York fan—evidently unaware of her activism—complained that she was being too political, she told him to “shut the f--- up” and leave. She later apologized. In Florida, a man tossed a drink at her. Some critics said she should have stuck with the music. During Monday’s performance, Streisand actually lauded Bush for his ability to take a joke.

Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day (so far)

If you ask me, this goober is gettin’ closer and closer every day to actually confessing to the murders. Give him time. His conscience will eventually get the better of him ... if he doesn’t go stark, raving mad first. Then again, maybe he is already looney-tunes. I’d put money on it ...

O.J. Simpson To Promote “If I Did It” On Fox
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Tue Nov 14, 2006 11:06pm ET162

imageimageFox said Tuesday it will air a two-part interview with O.J. Simpson at month’s end in which he describes the 1994 murders of his ex-wife and her friend that he says he didn’t commit.

The interview will be conducted by editor and book publisher Judith Regan. On November 30, her Regan Books is publishing a book Simpson wrote with the working title “If I Did It, Here’s How It Happened.”

Fox said Simpson’s book “hypothetically describes” how he would have committed the murders. The special will air at 9 p.m. November 27 and 29 on Fox.

Fox executives declined comment about the show Tuesday. In a statement released Tuesday, executive vice-president/alternative programming Mike Darnell said: “This is an interview that no one thought would ever happen. It’s the definitive last chapter in the trial of the century.”

Fox is a subsidiary of News Corp., which also owns Regan Books. A spokeswoman for Regan Books didn’t return a phone call or an e-mail seeking comment Tuesday.

Simpson was acquitted in 1995 of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman; he can’t be tried again for those crimes. In 1997, a civil court found him responsible for the slayings and ordered him to pay $33.5 million to the victims’ families.

A Song For you

First, a little history. Beccy Cole is an Australian country music singer. Last Christmas she went to Iraq to entertain Aussie troops, “diggers” as they’re called - kinda like our “grunts”. When she returned to Australia, some fans contacted her to let her know they were taking her poster off their walls and wouldn’t buy any more of her albums - because of her support for “an unjust war”, as they called it.

Sound familiar? Yes, it’s the direct opposite of what happened to Natalie Maines. You could say Beccy is the “anti-Dixie-Chick”. Personally, I think Beccy is a downright pretty young lady with a beautiful voice. Take a look at her official web site and see if you agree.

After that, if you want some real entertainment go visit this blog called ”To Hell With Culture” which is obviously anti-war and anti-Beccy. The blogger’s name is Jules and here is what he thinks of Beccy’s song ... “It’s called poster girl or the other side of the world or something like that. Who gives a fuck really. It may as well be called steaming pile of horse shit mixed with dog’s vomit.” Say hello to Jules while you’re there. You might even want to leave a comment.

But first, play the video below. Then decide for yourself. Personally, I think I’m in love with this “sheila”. I think I will have to go visit Amazon. The album is entitled ”Feel This Free” in case you’re interested ....

Wanted: Dead Or Alive

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
