SCOTUS To Decide Bimbo vs. Money

Judge John Roberts goes through the agonizing nomination process to get appointed to the Supreme Court and what is one of the first cases he gets to preside over? I’m glad you asked. He (and the other justices) get to decide if a blonde bimbo gets to keep her share of her dead sugar daddy’s money. That’s right. The Supreme Court of the United States has nothing better to do than decide if Anna Nichole Smith gets paid off for humping an 89-year-old man in his final years. I’m flabbergasted ....

imageimageAnna Nicole’s Case Goes to Supreme Court

The Supreme Court shed its staid image Tuesday, giving stripper-turned Playboy model Anna Nicole Smith a new chance at a piece of the fortune of her 90-year-old late husband. The court said it would hear arguments early next year as part of Smith’s effort to collect as much as $474 million from the estate of J. Howard Marshall II. The oil tycoon married her in 1994 when he was 89 and she was 26. The case promises to be the sexiest of the nine-month term which begins next week.

“She’s very excited. She will be attending arguments, there’s no question about that,’’ Smith’s lawyer, Howard K. Stern, said in a telephone interview from Vermont where the television reality star is filming a movie. At issue for the court is a relatively mundane technical issue: when may federal courts hear claims that are also involved state probate proceedings. But the facts are eye-catching. The 1993 Playmate of the Year and self-described ``blonde bombshell’’ claims her husband promised her millions but that his scheming son cut her out of the estate.

The son, E. Pierce Marshall, said that a Texas court had found Smith’s claim frivolous and that a jury determined he did nothing wrong. ``This is one small step in a process and we intend to prevail so that my father’s wishes can be honored,’’ he said in a statement. His father, one of Texas’ wealthiest men, died in 1995, setting off a nasty legal fight. An initial $474 million award for Smith was reduced to about $89 million, then thrown out altogether by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The appeals court said that a Texas probate court’s decision that the oilman’s son was his sole heir should stand.

The appeals court decision, that federal courts in California never had jurisdiction, erased a lower court finding that she was entitled to compensatory and punitive damages on grounds that Marshall’s son tried to keep her from receiving money from his father’s estate. Smith, whose real name is Vickie Lynn Marshall, had received more than $6 million in gifts from her late husband, but was not included in his will, justices were told by E. Pierce Marshall’s attorneys.

Smith’s attorneys told justices in a filing that Marshall’s son “devotes nearly half his brief to manipulating the record to cast (Vickie) in a bad light,’’ and that J. Howard Marshall intended to provide for his wife throughout her life. The Supreme Court agreed to hear the case without awaiting the opinion of the new chief justice. The Senate is expected to vote on John Roberts’ nomination later this week. The eight justices, including retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, picked that case to hear out of about 1,900 appeals.

The case is Vickie Lynn Marshall v. E. Pierce Marshall, 04-1544.

Forget the Ten Commandments and Roe v. Wade. This is more important, right?

Fifteen Minutes

I’m sorry but Cindy Sheehan has become a self-parody. A ridiculous joke that started out as an anti-war protest and has degenerated into self-aggrandizement, public relations, propaganda and sophomoric antics. Smiling for the cameras as she was taken away, the lady clearly is having way too much fun with all this publicity. Why is she doing this? What makes her think that turning tail and running out of Iraq will somehow glorify her son’s memory? What does she hope to accomplish with all this? Will any of it bring her son back to life? Will her protests actually remove President Bush from office? The answer to all of this is ... no, none and nothing. She can hope to achieve absolutely nothing from making an ass out of herself except to make clear to the American people what a useless media sock-puppet she has become for the radical Left in this country. She is being used .. plain and simple. Yet she is having the time of her life, as evidenced by the ear-to-ear grin below.

Whether they realize it or not, Sheehan and her “friends” in the crowd in DC are part of an overall manipulation of the American media by two groups of people: (1) the radical Left in this country who hate George Bush with a vitriolic passion, and (2) the radical Islamofascists who would kill us and who stand to profit handsomely in their ongoing Jihad against Western civilization by facing a divided enemy, namely us. The enemy within and the enemy without. Both are dependent on publicity from the media and both are bent on destroying thousands of years of civilization. Ms. Sheehan and her friends give aid and comfort to Osama bin Laden and his murderous thugs. I’m sure they appreciate the help and will spare Ms. Sheehan when they make their next attack on us. Then again, I could be wrong ....

imageimageSheehan Arrested During Anti-War Protest

Cindy Sheehan, the California woman who became a leader of the anti- war movement following her son’s death in Iraq, was arrested Monday along with dozens of others protesting outside the White House. Sheehan, carrying a photo of her son in his Army uniform, was among hundreds of protesters who marched around the White House and then down the two-block pedestrian walkway on Pennsylvania Avenue. When they reached the front of the White House, dozens sat down _ knowing they would be arrested _ and began singing and chanting “Stop the war now!”

Police warned them three times that they were breaking the law by failing to move along, then began making arrests. One man climbed over the White House fence and was quickly subdued by Secret Service agents. Sheehan, 48, was the first taken into custody. She smiled as she was carried to the curb, then stood up and walked to a police vehicle while protesters chanted, “The whole world is watching.” About 50 people were arrested in the first hour, with dozens of others waiting to be taken away. All cooperated with police.

Sgt. Scott Fear, spokesman for the U.S. Park Police, said they would be charged with demonstrating without a permit, which is a misdemeanor. Park Police Sgt. L.J. McNally said Sheehan and the others would be taken to a processing center where they would be fingerprinted and photographed, then given a ticket and released. The process would take several hours, he said. Sheehan’s 24-year-old son, Casey, was killed in an ambush in Sadr City, Iraq, last year. She attracted worldwide attention last month with her 26-day vigil outside President Bush’s Texas ranch.

The demonstration is part of a broader anti-war effort on Capitol Hill organized by United for Peace and Justice, an umbrella group. Representatives from anti-war groups were meeting Monday with members of Congress to urge them to work to end the war and bring home the troops. White House press secretary Scott McClellan said Bush is “very much aware” of the protesters and “recognizes that there are differences of opinion” on Iraq. “It’s the right of the American people to peacefully express their views. And that’s what you’re seeing here in Washington, D.C.,” McClellan said. “They’re well-intentioned, but the president strongly believes that withdrawing ... would make us less safe and make the world more dangerous.”

Skipper’s Sunday Sacrifice

OK, troops! Once again I have made the ultimate sacrifice for you all. Yes, I have just returned from the Huffington Post where I read (agony!) the latest screed from Cindy Sheehan (The Babbling Banshee). I won’t bore you with the entire thing. It’s much too inflammatory (and quite insane). I liken her posts to mental diarrhea .... and right now, I’m covered in Shee-it from Shee-han. Argh ....

After we arrived at Camp Casey III, we took the Veterans for Peace “Impeachment Tour Bus” into New Orleans after stopping at the distribution center to pick up some supplies in Covington. The stench and the destruction are unbelievable. I saw some hurricane zones in the panhandle of Florida last year that were pretty bad but that couldn’t have prepared me for this.

I saw in the paper that George Bush said the recovery in the Gulf States would be “hard work.” That’s what he said about sending troops to Iraq and looking at the casualty reports everyday: “It’s hard work.” That man has never known a day of hard work in his life. The people on the ground in Covington scoffed at George’s little junket to Louisiana yesterday. He stayed in the French Quarter and a Ward that weren’t even damaged a bit. The VFP took me to the city of Algiers on the West Bank. The part of Algiers we went to was very poor and black. The people of Algiers know what hard work is.

Algiers had no flooding. All of the damage was from winds. There are trees knocked over and shingles off of roofs. There are signs blown over and there was a dead body lying on the ground for 2 weeks before someone finally came to get it. Even though Algiers came through Katrina relatively unscathed, our federal government tried to force (mostly successfully) the people out of the community. Malik Rahim, a new friend of ours and resident of Algiers, told us stories of the days after the hurricane. The government declared martial law, but there was no effective police presence to enforce it. Malik said the lawlessness was rampant. People were running out of food and water and they were being forced to go to the Superdome. They didn’t want to go to the Superdome, because their homes were pretty intact: they wanted to stay and have food and water brought to them. A town of 76,000 people dwindled down to 3,000. The die hards were rewarded last Wednesday when the VFP rolled into town with food and water. The Camp Casey III people were the first ones to bring any relief to Algiers. The people who were supposed to look after its citizens, our government, failed them.

For clarification, Cindy: I have lived in New Orleans on three occasions for many years. Much longer than you have, I imagine. Algiers is what is referred to by the good folks of New Orleans as “The West Bank” and is a crime-infested pesthole. Always has been, always will be. It was that way long before George Bush was born. You want to buy drugs, hire a hitman, get screwed, blewed & tattooed? Go to Algiers. Ask anyone who lives in New Orleans. Algiers and East New Orleans are shot-out ghettos that Democratic Mayors of New Orleans and Governors of Louisiana created and nurtured ages ago. How can you come riding into town and after only a day or two claim to understand everything about everything down there? Damn, Cindy! Get a clue!

The citizens of Algiers desperately needed help and hope before the hurricane. When I think of how many other poor neighborhoods are being decimated and made so desperate and hopeless by the failed policies of the Bush administration, it makes me so angry. But when I see what the people of Algiers are doing to help themselves and the people of America are doing to help them help themselves, it gives me hope. I think Algiers can be a model for all of our communities.

One thing that truly troubled me about my visit to Louisiana was the level of the military presence there. I imagined before that if the military had to be used in a CONUS (Continental US) operations that they would be there to help the citizens: Clothe them, feed them, shelter them, and protect them. But what I saw was a city that is occupied. I saw soldiers walking around in patrols of 7 with their weapons slung on their backs. I wanted to ask one of them what it would take for one of them to shoot me. Sand bags were removed from private property to make machine gun nests.

The vast majority of people who were looting in New Orleans were doing so to feed their families or to get resources to get their families out of there. If I had a store with an inventory of insured belongings, and a tragedy happened, I would fling my doors open and tell everyone to take what they need: it is only stuff. When our fellow citizens are told to “shoot to kill” other fellow citizens because they want to stay alive, that is military and governmental fascism gone out of control. What I saw today in Algiers lifted up my spirits, but what I also saw today in Algiers frightened me terribly.

Once again (sigh) let me clue you in, you ignorant twit. Algiers became a crime-riddled neighborhood full of poor people back when Andy Jackson was President. Nearly two hundred years of Democrats in charge in New Orleans hasn’t changed it one bit. George Bush is a Johnny-Come-Lately to that problem. Your blaming him is beyond ludicrous. It is just insane babbling. As for the looters, how many kids can you feed with a color TV (and no electricity)? How many hungry children really need a portable DVD player?

As for what it would take for one of them to shoot you .... be glad I’m not in their shoes. It wouldn’t take much. Your divisive, argumentative bullshit helps no one and you’re probably just getting in the way down there. Why don’t you just go home and shut the hell up for a while. The rational grownups in this country have work to do and your venom and bile aren’t helping one damn bit. If you really want to help, go to Syria and convince the government there to stop sending insurgents into Iraq. Go to Iran and convince the Mad Mullahs to stop pursuing nuclear weapons. Go to North Korea and convince Kim Jung Il to stop manufacturing nuclear weapons. There is plenty you could do to help. Right now though you’re just another Rachel Corrie. Watch out for that bulldozer behind you ....

Dumbass Quote Of The Day

“I heard from a very reliable source who saw a 25 foot deep crater under the levee breach. It may have been blown up to destroy the black part of town and keep the white part dry.”
-- Louis Farrakhan in an interview about Hurricane Katrina

In An Alternative Universe

President Kerry Slams Republican Congress Over Katrina

In New Orleans today, President Kerry issued a statement saying the human suffering was “seared, yes seared” into his memory and blamed Congress for not passing his recent 2006 budget which would have cut all funding to the US military and funneled over $500 billion into welfare and social programs. The largely Republican Congress has also been blamed by Vice President Edwards for further slowing the economy by refusing to pass the 35% tax hike proposed by Kerry.

Kerry stated, “if we had snatched, erh, allocated that money for ghettos like New Orleans this country would not be in the shape it finds itself in today.” He went on to say that “spreading the wealth” was the only way to raise all people out of poverty and that rich people like his wife Teresa, who is currently undergoing alcoholism and drug dependency treatments at an undisclosed sanitarium in Vermont, are all willing to share if given the chance. Teresa was unavailable for comment.

Fortunately for the administration, there was plenty of military available to move into New Orleans following the recent disaster since all troops were pulled out of Iraq and Afghanistan in March of this year. Citing Iraq as “the wrong war at the wrong place at the wrong time” Kerry has posted returning troops at greatly reduced bases in the continental US. Over 2 million members of the Armed Forces have since retired or gone AWOL but there were sufficient numbers to swiflty man boats in New Orleans this week.

The recent takeover in Iraq and Afghanistan by radical Muslims and the nuclear bombing of Israel have all been attributed by Kerry to the previous administraions poor judgement in not allowing the United Nations to manage the situation. Kerry said “US intervention overseas was no longer an option” and “the policy of [his] administration would be based on UN management of US Armed Forces.”

Hollywood stars Sean Penn and Barbara Streisand praised Kerry for breaking short his three month vacation in Aspen by one day to quickly board Air Force One and rush to the aid of the poor, deprived black people of New Orleans. Kerry’s first statement upon arriving at Louis B. Armstong airport was a moment of high drama as the President descended to the tarmac and immediately announced, “Bill Clinton was this country’s first black President and I am the second. I feel your pain, my bro’s!”

Meanwhile, back in Washington, Vice President Edwards announced that the President had declared martial law and all Cadillac dealerships in the Southeast were ordered to turn over all late model Coupe De Villes for immediate dispersal to the 108,000 poor left stranded in New Orleans. Edwards told the Senate that it would be cheaper than trying to fly them out. Senate Republicans immediately threatened a filibuster over the move but the Vice President had all 55 Republican Senators arrested for inhumane treatment of American citizens.

In a speech to the nation last night, President Kerry informed Americans of new gas rationing measures and an added federal tax of $5 per gallon on gas to pay for relief efforts. He went on to say the the country would weather this storm and that if Mother Nature had more in store, the country would be ready. He ended his fireside chat by urging Mother Nature to “bring it on!”

In related news, former President Bush completed the sale of his Crawford, Texas ranch last week and had moved to Australia. He could not be reached for comment.

Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day

Did you know that there is a 200 ton houseboat blocking 18% of our nation’s much-needed oil from getting in? No, I am not making this up. It’s too ridiculous to be fiction ....

(WASHINGTON POST)—PORT FOURCHON, La., Sept. 1—At 4:30 a.m. yesterday, Davie J. Breaux had a big problem. A really big one. Breaux is director of operations at Port Fourchon, a facility at the southernmost tip of Louisiana that provides key support for offshore oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. In normal times, about 1,000 tractor-trailers reach the port each day via a two-lane road, hauling in goods and equipment critical to the import of about 18 percent of the U.S. oil supply.

But no trucks are coming through. The oil rigs are not running. Electricity is out. And Breaux’s big problem today: Blocking that key road is a 200-ton houseboat blown by Hurricane Katrina some 200 feet out of the water. The repairs Breaux and his crew must undertake are a prime example of what must be done to bring the U.S. oil supply closer to full capacity.

So Breaux, 46, whose grandfather and father each worked 30 years for Texaco on offshore rigs near Port Fourchon, came up with a solution: soap. His plan was to put five gallons of liquid soap on wooden boards, slide them under the houseboat, and use five or six large cranes to swing the front of the 100-foot-long barge to the side of the road. “Apparently everybody thinks I’m crazy,” Breaux said after one of his workers chuckled at his idea and reminded him of how heavy the barge is.

Wait. Don’t soap the boat down, the owner insisted after Breaux explained his plan. His insurance adjuster was on his way, and he wanted to hear ideas on how to move the hunk of metal. “I ain’t slept in two damn days trying to figure out how to move that bitch,” the owner said.

Barely an hour later, as Breaux went around and checked on his crews of workers—some of whom were prisoners from the local jail on work release to help clean up sand and marsh grass and pull boats upright—he got a call from the owner. Solution found—if Breaux and Falgout would agree, that is.

The insurance adjuster said he would have the boat moved using cranes in the next two to three days. A crew would tear out the wet wood on the inside and do a controlled burn. The only problem: A special burn permit would be necessary; port officials get nervous with fire around so many oil storage containers. The insurance company said it would then take the boat apart and turn it into scrap metal—a boat that at one time could sleep 50 people and was worth about $1.5 million, according to the owner.

I want to personally thank the insurance companies and the enviro-weenies for that $65 tank of gas I bought yesterday.

First-Hand Account

This is remarkable.  There is an ISP in New Orleans that is still running.  Their “crisis manager”, who is ex-military, is holed up in the building with an unspecified number of people, supplies and weapons to ensure the data center is running and secure.  This is his journal.  There is also a live streaming webcam here.

This is an excerpt from yesterday:

Ok, we went down to the ground floors to lock down the building tight since a couple of people holed up with us took off. While we were down there we surveyed a huge area of the CBD.

Flooding in the CBD: Poydras is flooded from near the west side of the Superdome down to Baronne street. All of the side streets are flooded too down that way. Baronne is the last flooded street as you head to the river. Poydras is clear from Baronne to the river.

There is no water that we could see from Poydras to the interstate starting at Baronne and going all the way to the river. Headed toward Canal St. from Poydras, I saw no flooding at all from just past Baronne to the river. That’s a huge area of the CBD without water on the streets. That’s way better than the warnings we got.

Looting: The police are looting. This has been confirmed by several independent sources. Some of the looting might be “legitimate” in as much as that word has any meaning in this context. They have broken into ATMs and safes: confirmed. We have eyewitnesses to this. They have taken dozens of SUVs from dealerships ostensibly for official use. They have also looted gun stores and pawn shops for all the small arms, supposedly to prevent “criminals” from doing so. But who knows their true intentions. We have an inside source in the NOPD who says that command and control is in chaos. He reports that command lapses more than 24 hours between check-ins, and that most of the force are “like deer in the headlights.” NOPD already had a reputation for corruption, but I am telling you now that the people we’ve been talking to say they are not recognizing the NOPD as a legitimate authority anymore, since cops have been seen looting in Walmarts and forcing people out of stores so they could back up SUVs and loot them. Don’t shoot the messenger....

Personal: Securing a 27 floor high rise with no elevator support is not fun. I am totally worn out. I am gonna chill for an hour, eat dinner, then perform maintenance. But never fear, Outpost Crystal and Team SOTI have knuckled down and will never quit. Never. We are prepared to go all the way to see this thing through.

Thanks again for all the support and love. One day this will all be over and ancient history, but I’ll never forget the kindness of strangers. Keep the less fortunate people in your thoughts and prayers.

Junk Science?

Trying to write about something other than the devestation to the south.

John Stossel writes this morning about the government’s love of control, especially realted to scientific reports and recommendations.

When I was a kid, my mother thought spinach was the healthiest food in the world because it contained so much iron. Getting enough iron was a big deal then because we didn’t have “iron-fortified” bread. It turns out that spinach is an OK source of iron but no better than pizza, pistachio nuts or dried peaches. The spinach-iron myth grew out of a simple mathematical miscalculation: A researcher accidentally moved a decimal point one space, so he thought spinach had 10 times more iron than it did. The press reported it, and I had to eat spinach.

I love spinach, especially spinach casserole, but I have always thought it was a source for high iron.

The federal anti-salt bureaucracy launched expensive public service announcements that warn Americans to cut back on salt. The ads intoned, ominously, “You eat more than 20 times the salt your body needs.”

Eat “no more than 2,400 milligrams a day,” said Dr. Jeffrey Cutler, the official behind the government’s anti-salt campaign.

I feel sorry for you if you follow your government’s recommendations. A maximum of 2,400 milligrams a day makes for a miserable diet. Three dill pickles put you over the limit.

Problem is, Dr. Cutler has no basis for this arbitrary recommendation except that it gets him on TV to talk about it.

“I can’t imagine how they came up with that number. I mean, there isn’t a single bit of evidence that suggests 2,400 milligrams is better than 2,100 or 3,700,” said Dr. Michael Alderman, who headed the American Society of Hypertension, America’s biggest organization of specialists in high blood pressure. He says some people should cut back on salt, but for most people, it’s pointless. Some studies have found that those who ate the least salt were four times more likely to have heart attacks.

We report, you decide.

Howard Dean’s Army

The Deaniacs have invaded West Virginia. Never fear though, the exterminators were on the job cleaning out the Moonbats in record time. Key quote: “They’ve gotten rid of the rubble, but there is a definite odor still.” Hmmmmmm, must be the screamin’ meemies or else it’s the hippy element in Dean’s entourage. We better keep an eye on this vermin ....

NEW HAVEN, W.Va. (AP)—Exterminators this weekend removed more than five dozen bats from New Haven Elementary School that were found by construction crews working on a $5.5 million remodeling project. The bats were found under old ceiling tile.

“Parents will find the concern for bats no longer exists. If we do have evidence of animals, we will get rid of it,” said Principal Robert Vaughn. Chemicals the exterminators used to get rid of the bats are not harmful to children or adults, he said.

Parent Sherry Shirley said, “They’ve cleaned. ... They’ve gotten rid of the rubble, but there is a definite odor still.”

Renovations to the school will continue after classes begin. Crews are preparing the school for its planned consolidation with Mason Elementary School in the 2006-2007 school year.

Sacrifical Lamb?

Thanks to BobF, I decided to check out Cindy Sheehan’s blog site. Sure enough, according to Bob, PETA has a booth set up (Click the “Camp Casey Tour” video). What PETA has to do with this is anybody’s guess unless they’re just there as one more Leftist organization riding Mrs. Sheehan’s publicity coat-tails. What really caught my eye is the following from Mrs. Sheehan, posted today ....

I apparently am the sacrificial lamb of the peace movement. I don’t care about myself. Putting myself in the forefront and daring to challenge the president on his lies left myself open to the attacks. Which are, of course, half truths and distortions.

When they start sliming my home life and my family, that’s where I draw the line. Yes, my husband has filed for divorce and yes he filed before I left for the VFP Convention and this trip to Crawford and yes IT IS BETWEEN MY HUSBAND AND I.

Having Casey murdered in Iraq by George Bush’s reckless policies has been hard enough on my family, but me setting off on my holy war to bring the troops home, my constant absences, and all of the media attention has put additional stresses on my family.

I chose my path after Casey died. The rest of the family has chosen theirs. We all still love each other and support each other in anything that we do. We didn’t want Casey to join the Army, but once he made that decision, we supported him and even encouraged him through boot camp.

We are a normal American family who have had good times, bad times, and terrible times. We hope the good times will come back. We hope that we will be able to laugh with abandon together like we used to one day. We hope that the troops come home and no other families have to go through what we are going through.

It isn’t about politics for us. No one asked Casey what political affiliation he was before they sent him off to die in Iraq and no one asked us who we voted for in 2000 before we were handed a folded flag from Casey’s flag-draped coffin.

I am not perfect and I never even claimed to be perfect. My family isn’t perfect, but we are pretty special ... especially the children. We all miss Casey so much and it is George Bush and his neocon cabal who is at fault. The people who are dragging my family through the mud need to grow up and look at themselves. The Christ said: “He who is without sin, cast the first stone.”

If everyone followed Jesus’s advice, the world would be a much better place.

Memo To Mrs. Sheehan: Cindy, it isn’t worth it. You’re destroying your family and your life. In the process, you are losing your grip on reality. I understand the heartache and pain you feel. Most all of us do. There is nothing political about that even though I totally disagree with your assessment of the war In Iraq, where your son died. If you want to make this a better world, go to Iraq or Afghanistan and convince the radical Muslims to follow Jesus’ advice. They are much farther from His word than President Bush is.

If you really want to convince people that this is not political, don’t talk about how “it isn’t about politics” and then use phrases like “George Bush and his neocon cabal”. All you’re convincing me of with that kind of talk is the fact that you want to play the victim and garner sympathy while claiming to be non-partisan and engaging in name-calling at the Administration. Do you not see the duplicity in all that? If you don’t, you’re in worse shape than I thought.

Most importantly, stop listening to the voices of the Leftists you find yourself surrounded with there at your little camp in Crawford. Listen to your inner conscience. Listen to your family - the people who have known you most of your life - who also miss Casey. You probably won’t listen to me since I don’t agree with your position. Why not talk to your preacher and don’t be afraid to take advice from those who love you. Most of all, talk to your husband. He also lost a son. Remember?

.. thanks to Jaguar for the link to this cartoon, which pretty much sums it up ..

Update: If you really want a treat, go take a peak at Arianna Huffington’s disgusting post entitled, “It Takes a Village to Smear Cindy Sheehan”. Huff The Magic Dragon is desperately in need of a good spanking for writing that drivel. CAUTION: may induce extreme anger in any human capable of rational thought.

Mad As Hell

This is it! I’ve had it with this beeyatch. Once was enough but not again. NO, DAMMIT! I mean it! Jane Fonda is starting a cross-country tour on a frikkin’ bus that runs on vegetable oil to protest the Iraq war. NO! DAMMIT! Please, Dear God! Stop this madwoman!

imageimage(MYWAY NEWS)—SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Actress and activist Jane Fonda says she intends to take a cross-country bus tour to call for an end to U.S. military operations in Iraq.

“I can’t go into any detail except to say that it’s going to be pretty exciting,” she said. Fonda said her anti-war tour in March will use a bus that runs on “vegetable oil.” She will be joined by families of Iraq war veterans and her daughter.

They plan to return to the Santa Fe area, where she was promoting her book, “My Life So Far” on Saturday. Prompted by a question from the audience, Fonda said war veterans that she has met on a nationwide book tour have encouraged her to break her silence on the Iraq war.

“I’ve decided I’m coming out,” she said. Hundreds of people in the audience cheered loudly when Fonda announced her intentions to join the anti-Iraq war movement. “I have not taken a stand on any war since Vietnam,” she said. “I carry a lot of baggage from that.”

Fonda incited controversy in July 1972 when she was photographed sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun while on a tour of the country to drum up support to end the war.

The latest criminal defense plea: “Your honor, I was being particularly boisterous with that young boy because the voices in my head told me to.” Perry Mason unavailable for comment ....

imageimageTAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A teacher will claim she was insane due to emotional stress and did not know right from wrong when she had sex numerous times with a 14-year-old student, her attorney said Monday.

“What teacher in her right mind would do something like this?” attorney John Fitzgibbons said after a brief hearing for his client, Debra Lafave, a middle-school reading teacher.

The judge agreed to appoint two mental health professionals to evaluate LaFave. Prosecutors have said a state psychologist already determined Lafave was not insane, while one hired by the defense concluded that she was mentally ill.

Lafave’s trial was set for Dec. 5 on four felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery and one count of lewd and lascivious exhibition. Each carries a maximum 15-year prison term.

Fitzgibbons said plea bargaining broke down because prosecutors wanted Lafave to serve too much prison time, though he did not give details.

“To place an attractive young woman in that kind of hell hole is like putting a piece of raw meat in with the lions,” said Fitzgibbons. “I’m not sure she would survive.”

A state attorney’s office spokeswoman didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.

The boy told investigators he and the teacher had sex in a classroom, her house and once in a vehicle while his 15-year-old cousin drove. He said Lafave told him her marriage was in trouble and that she was aroused by the fact that having sex with him was not allowed.

Democrats Have Gone Totally Barking Moonbat Insane

Don’t believe it? Go read this little tidbit that James Taranto at WSJ’s OpinionJournal dug up ....

WASHINGTON - Friday, June 17, 2005 - In the Capitol basement yesterday, long-suffering House Democrats took a trip to the land of make-believe.

They pretended a small conference room was the Judiciary Committee hearing room, draping white linens over folding tables to make them look like witness tables and bringing in cardboard name tags and extra flags to make the whole thing look official.

Rep. John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) banged a large wooden gavel and got the other lawmakers to call him “Mr. Chairman.” He liked that so much that he started calling himself “the chairman” and spouted other chairmanly phrases, such as “unanimous consent” and “without objection so ordered.” The dress-up game looked realistic enough on C-SPAN, so two dozen more Democrats came downstairs to play along.

The session was a mock impeachment inquiry over the Iraq war. As luck would have it, all four of the witnesses agreed that President Bush lied to the nation and was guilty of high crimes—and that a British memo on “fixed” intelligence that surfaced last month was the smoking gun equivalent to the Watergate tapes. Conyers was having so much fun that he ignored aides’ entreaties to end the session.

“At the next hearing,” he told his colleagues, “we could use a little subpoena power.” That brought the house down.

Taranto Notes: There’s been a spate of stories lately about President Bush’s poor poll numbers--the importance of which is a mystery to us, given that the next presidential election is almost 3 1/2 years away, and Bush won’t be a candidate in any case. At the same time, the Angry Left seems to be getting less inhibited: witness Howard Dean’s various bouts of logorrhea, Charlie Rangel’s and Dick Durbin’s outrageous Americans-are-Nazis claims, and now this.

We suspect there’s a connection here: The liberal media are persuading liberal pols that President Bush is in trouble with the public. The pols therefore conclude that the public is on their side, and this emboldens them to . . . well, in our opinion, to behave like total jackasses. Although we find this all somewhat vexing, we’re guessing that in the end it will not pay off politically for the Dems.

Go read the rest of the news article about this act of madmen. Remember though, mad dogs do not need your sympathy. They just need to be put to sleep ....

The good news: there is going to be a war crimes trial over the genocide in the Darfur region of Sudan.

The bad news: the trial is being held by the Islamic government of Sudan .... which has been behind the mass killings of black Africans.

The Sudanese government is doing this to head off the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague and put on a pretense of seeking justice for the millions of black Africans murdered by Sudanese Muslims. This is a travesty and a total farce ....

Sudan’s War Crimes Court To Open

(BBC) 14-June-2005 - A special war crimes court is due to open, with charges against some 160 Sudanese from the Darfur region, the justice minister has said.

Lobby group Amnesty International has said the court “lacks credibility”.

Justice Minister Ali Mohammed Yassin said the court would be an alternative to the world court which has started to investigate alleged war crimes.

More than two million people have been forced from their homes in the conflict in which at least 180,000 have died.

Mr Yassin did not give any details about the suspects’ identity, beyond saying they were from Darfur.

The court is due to sit in Nyala and al-Fashir, capitals of south and north Darfur.

The BBC’s Alfred Taban in Sudan says that he does not expect the court to charge the 51 alleged ringleaders of the atrocities but instead to concentrate on the “small-fry”.

“The court will be an alternative to the International Criminal Court (ICC),” Mr Yassin said.

The ICC last week officially began its investigations of 51 war crimes suspects, whose names were handed over in a sealed document by a United Nations panel of investigators.

“We fear that the establishment of the special court may just be a tactic by the Sudanese government to avoid prosecution” by the ICC, said Kolawole Olaniyan, the director of Amnesty International’s Africa programme.

“On the one hand, the Sudanese government is claiming that it is able to punish the crimes it is accused of condoning for the last two years,” he said in a statement.

“On the other hand, it continues to crack down on those who expose or criticise such human rights violations.”

Oh-ho! Amnesia Internationale says the court “lacks credibility”, as if AI has any idea what credibility actually is, itself. This is totally ridiculous. This is Islamic justice for you. Practice genocide, then hold a kangaroo court, throw a few small-fry to the wolves and declare justice has been served. I don’t know who is stupider, these idiots for passing off this farce as “justice” or the idiots who will believe this was really justice (and there will be plenty of morons at the UN who will)?

Somebody pass me a screwdriver and pair of pliers. My bullshit detector just exploded.

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.
