An Inconvenient Breakdown

imageimageIf any of you were trying to get to this blog last night you are probably aware that we disappeared from the internet for several hours, starting about 9:00pm ET. In fact we weren’t the only ones MIA. Emperor Misha at the Anti-Idiotarian Rottie Empire, Frank J. at IMAO and the evil Puppy Blender at Instapundit, among many others, also disappeared from cyberspace.

Yes, there is a very good explanation and no, it had absolutely nothing to do with Muslim terrorists or Turner Broadcasting’s “mooninites” ... we think. Quite simply, what happened is some doofus in Atlanta, GA somehow managed to plow through the main fiber line going South to Florida and since our blog is hosted by Hosting Matters in Jacksonville (along with all the other REALLY COOL bloggers), we all went away.

I got notification from Hosting Matters about 9:30 ET and then all we could do was wait while the fiber splicers in Hot-lanta went to work to repair the connection. Sometime in the wee hours of the morning they finally got it all back together. So far Al-Qaeda has not claimed responsibility but we’re keeping an eye on the bastards just in case.

So for now we’re back in business monitoring Moonbats. Our thanks go out to the fine folks at Hosting Matters who were kind enough to stay up all night to get this resolved. They’re the greatest. We now resume our regularly scheduled programming, already in progress ....

The Know-Bull Prize

Hell, they gave this prize to Yassir Arafish and Dhimmi Carter. What difference is it going to make to give it to one more loon. Stoopid Swedes. It’s a good thing they have beautiful blonde women. Otherwise they’d be totally useless.

Al Gore Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize
OSLO, Norway (AP) - Feb 01 6:29 AM US/Eastern

imageimageFormer Vice President Al Gore was nominated for the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for his wide-reaching efforts to draw the world’s attention to the dangers of global warming, a Norwegian lawmaker said Thursday.

“A prerequisite for winning the Nobel Peace Prize is making a difference, and Al Gore has made a difference,” Conservative Member of Parliament Boerge Brende, a former minister of environment and then of trade, told The Associated Press.

Brende said he joined political opponent Heidi Soerensen of the Socialist Left Party to nominate Gore as well as Canadian Inuit activist Sheila Watt-Cloutier before the nomination deadline expired Thursday.

“Al Gore, like no other, has put climate change on the agenda. Gore uses his position to get politicians to understand, while Sheila works from the ground up,” Brende said.

Best Headline Of The Day

HORNY & CLYDE
(NY POST) - February 1, 2007

imageimageA flamboyant con artist and his Hamptons gal pal videotaped sex romps with married lonely-hearts they met over the Internet - then blackmailed them for thousands of dollars in hush money, police said yesterday.

The scammers went by the screen names “Mr. Nice” and “Gina.” Cops identified them as Michael Largue, 44, of Franklin Square, L.I., and Shawn Payne, 34, of East Hampton, who picked their marks from the sexually explicit Web site FriendFinder.

Largue would lure an unsuspecting woman into a sexual relationship and Payne would do the same with men, police said. Cops said they know of at least two extortion victims: an upstate woman, 47, they hit up for $51,000, and a man, 43, from Garden City.

The scheme worked well, cops say, because unlike a quickie one-night stand, the alleged blackmailers gained their victims’ personal history during pillow talk over several weeks while videotaping and photographing the sex acts.

“The victims are all upstanding individuals and respected members of their communities,” said Nassau County Police Detective Lt. Ray Cote.  Once a victim was hooked, the shakedown began. Cops said Largue called the shots.

“They start with [cash] increments. Once they get that, they don’t let go,” he said. Payne was employed as a caretaker at an East Hampton mansion across the street from where millionaire Ted Ammon was murdered in 2001.

Police were able to trace the female victim through confiscated bank-account records. She fell under the spell of the charismatic, quick-talking Largue, thinking “they might have had something special together,” said Sgt. Anthony Repalone.

Largue learned how much money the woman had and that she was going through a nasty divorce. He then allegedly offered guidance and introduced his accomplice as a financial adviser.

Unintended Consequences

Si, you greedy gringos are driving your gas-guzzling (and now ethanol guzzling) SUV’s and us poor Mexican peasants are starving because of you. Shame on you for hogging all of that corn. Just for that we are going to send more Mexicans across the border to steal your corn. Viva tortilla revolucion!

(and you all thought Dubya was just being silly when he said, “Ethanol from corn is not the answer to our energy needs. We got to have some corn to eat too. I mean ... I like corn. Don’t you?")

75,000 Protest Tortilla Prices in Mexico
MEXICO CITY (AP) - February 1, 2007, 6:32 AM EST

imageimageSome 75,000 unionists, farmers and leftists marched to protest price increases in basic foodstuffs like tortillas, a direct challenge to the new president’s market-oriented economic policies blamed by some for widening the gulf between rich and poor.

Since taking office Dec. 1 after a disputed election, President Felipe Calderon has drawn his greatest criticism for failing to control the largest price spike in tortillas in decades. Tortillas are a staple of poor Mexicans’ diet.

The national uproar has put him in an uncomfortable position between the poor and some agribusiness industries hoping to profit from the surge in international corn prices, driven mostly by the sudden explosion of the U.S. ethanol industry. A free-market advocate, Calderon has said he does not want to return to direct price controls enforced by many former Mexican presidents.

During Wednesday’s march, protesters carried one banner that read “Calderon stole the elections, and now he’s stealing the tortillas!” The marchers are angry about tortilla prices that have doubled over the last year to roughly 45 cents a pound, causing hardship among the millions of poor Mexicans for whom they are a staple.

There was no official report on crowd size available, but reporters on the scene gave an estimate of 75,000, based on protesters filling about three-quarters of a plaza that holds about 100,000.

Unbelievable

How does shit like this happen? Don’t schools require a birth certificate or some form of identification any more? Do you mean to tell me a 29-year-old fooled all of the administrators, teachers and students about his age? More importantly - why was this perverted asshole on the street to begin with? What do we have to do to get our justice system back on track and either castrate these animals or keep them locked up for life?

I know. I ask too many questions, don’t I? DAMMIT! Is anyone out there listening? Does anybody really care that there are thousands of creeps like this walking the streets and living all around us? Just what in hell good is a government that lets foreigners invade our borders and allows perverts like this to run free? I’ll tell you what kind of government that is ... A TOTALLY USELESS ONE THAT NEEDS TO BE REPLACED! FIRE THEM ALL IN 2008!

Posing as a Family, Sex Offenders Stun a Town
EL MIRAGE, Ariz (NY TIMES) - February 1, 2007

imageimageTo neighbors, Casey Price was a seventh grader with acne and a baseball cap who lived an unremarkable life among a bevy of male relatives. He built the occasional skateboard ramp and did wheelies on his bicycle down the streets of this subdivision of stucco homes north of Phoenix.

In nearby Surprise, where Casey was enrolled as a 12-year-old in a public school for four months, he was regarded as a shy, average student with chronic attendance problems. A man identified as his uncle had registered him, attended curriculum night and e-mailed his teachers about homework assignments.

Now Casey is in jail, and his former neighbors and classmates have learned the unthinkable: Not only is Casey not Casey — his real name is Neil H. Rodreick II — but he is also a 29-year-old convicted sex offender who kept a youthful appearance with the aid of razors and makeup.

And the men known as his uncle, grandfather and cousin, who until recently shared a three-bedroom house with him here, were not family at all, but a web of convicted sex offenders and predators, law enforcement officials say, preying in part on one another.

A retracing of Mr. Rodreick’s tracks over the past several years shows that he is under investigation in three states. The authorities in four jurisdictions say he repeatedly failed to register as a sex offender, housed a large cache of child pornography in his computer and, based on videos found by the police, had sex with at least one boy.

Janet R. Lincoln, the public defender for Yavapai County, who represents Mr. Rodreick and the other three men, did not return multiple phone calls. A receptionist in her office said Ms. Lincoln would have no comment. The men have been indicted on numerous counts and are scheduled to appear in court in late February; they have already pleaded not guilty to charges of fraud and failing to register as sex offenders.

Mr. Rodreick spent seven years in prison in Oklahoma for making lewd and indecent proposals to two 6-year-old boys. After being released in 2002, law enforcement officials said, he was able to convince Lonnie Stiffler, 61, and Robert J. Snow, 43, who had been trolling the Internet for boys, that he was a minor.

In 2005, he talked the two men into taking him from Oklahoma to live with them in Arizona, where Mr. Stiffler posed as Mr. Rodreick’s grandfather and Mr. Snow as his uncle, and both men regularly had sex with him, the authorities said. Another man living in the house, Brian Nellis, 34, a sex offender Mr. Rodreick had met in prison, is believed to have aided Mr. Rodreick in the ruse, the authorities said.

Mr. Rodreick continued the charade as a minor for nearly two years, the authorities said, registering at four charter schools in Arizona, until this month, when school administrators in Chino Valley called the sheriff.

Bomb Scare And A Reader Poll

As Forrest Gump said, “Stupid is as stupid does.” In the bomb scare hoax in Boston yesterday we were treated to a veritable cornucopia of idiots in all shapes and sizes all over the country. In fact, you might say the entire day was spent freaking out over bombs in Boston and bullshit from Biden. It was one of those magical occasions when ignorance, fear and pure BS turned an otherwise dull winter day into a comedy of wildly overblown proportions.

I kept switching back and forth between FOX, CNN and MSNBC waiting for the punchline. The folks at FOX were apoplectic. The commies at CNN were beside themselves. The morons at MSNBC were ... morons. Meanwhile, back at the ranch Ted Turner was busy being his usual brain-dead self. I kept waiting for Terrible Ted to go on the air and blame it all on BushCheneyHaliburtonRove.

Then again, that would have prompted Al Gore to counter with the argument that glowbull warming was responsible. All things being said and done, it was quite entertaining and now is your chance to cast your vote on who was the biggest moron (or morons) in the whole mess. Since this concerns the Soviet Socialist Republic Of Taxatwoshits, you can vote more than once - so cast your vote(s) and let’s decide who to pin the Stoopid Medal™ on. There are plenty of deserving candidates ...

Boston Publicity Ploy Leads to 2 Arrests
BOSTON (AP) - February 1, 2007, 3:52 AM EST

imageimageSeveral illuminated electronic devices planted at bridges and other spots in Boston threw a scare into the city Wednesday in what turned out to be a publicity campaign for a late-night cable cartoon. Most of the devices depict a character giving the finger.

Peter Berdovsky, 27, of Arlington, and Sean Stevens, 28, of Charlestown, were each charged Wednesday night with one count of placing a hoax device and one count of disorderly conduct, state Attorney General Martha Coakley said.

The two men worked together to place the devices, Coakley said in a news release announcing Stevens’ arrest. Highways, bridges and a section of the Charles River were shut down and bomb squads were sent in before authorities declared the devices were harmless.

Turner Broadcasting, a division of Time Warner Inc. and parent of Cartoon Network, said the devices were part of a promotion for the TV show “Aqua Teen Hunger Force,” a surreal series about a talking milkshake, a box of fries and a meatball.

Authorities are investigating whether Turner and any other companies should be criminally charged, Coakley said. Berdovsky and Stevens were scheduled to be arraigned Thursday in Charlestown District Court, Coakley said. “We’re not going to let this go without looking at the further roots of how this happened to cause the panic in this city,” Coakley said at a news conference.

Those conducting the campaign should have known the devices could cause panic because they were placed in sensitive areas, she said. Turner did not notify officials of the publicity campaign until around 5 p.m., nearly four hours after the first calls came in about the devices, she and others said.

OK. Poll is now closed. Official tally is below. Lock ‘em all up and throw away the key.
