More White Guilt

Moonbats on Parade again ...

Canoe Skiddoo

Capt. Clark’s Descendants Make Amends to Indian Tribe for Canoe Stolen Long Ago

After completing their journey west and spending a wet and wretched winter at the mouth of the Columbia River in 1806, William Clark and Meriwether Lewis prepared to head home. There was just one problem: They were short a canoe. So they stole one from the Native Americans who had kept them alive all winter.

It has long been a sore subject with Chinook Indians in the Pacific Northwest, who perceived the theft as a major insult. Canoes were a sacred part of their culture and an important mode of transportation.

Oh just effin gag me already. EVERYTHING was sacred to the injuns. The fish, the dirt, the clouds, you name it. And I’m not saying that derisively, I’m saying that because their nearly animist worldview was fundamentally different than ours; they saw spirituality in everything, and believed in manitous - spiritual intermediaries - between themselves and nature and objects that also needed to be appeased. That was just their way, a sense of natural duality (perhaps similar to that of ancient Egypt) and for them there wasn’t always a clear line between the mundane world and the spiritual one. And I’m sure that building a canoe was quite a lot of work (two week’s worth actually), but this was a water’s edge tribe we’re talking about: they had plenty of canoes, and spent much of their time afloat. Oh, and, hey, the guy who had his canoe stolen has been dead for nearly 200 years now. Carrying a grudge that long down the generations would make this tribe pettier than muslims or the Irish, both world-renowned experts at Keeping Hate Alive. On the other hand, being unable to trade for a canoe or perhaps not allowed to build one would have made L & C feel as if they were prisoners, wouldn’t it? It’s not like their party was starving by that point, and the place was knee deep in resources.

More than 200 years later, William Clark’s descendants will make amends by presenting a 36-foot replica of the canoe to the Chinook Indian Nation during a ceremony here Saturday.

“We talked about what happened 205 years ago, and we believed that things could be restored if something like this were done,” said Carlota Clark Holton of St. Louis, Mo., seven generations removed from William Clark.

“I think everyone acknowledges that it was wrong, and we wanted to right a wrong,” she said. “The family was very much behind it.”

Well, I guess this was cheaper than hiring Bill Clinton to apologize for them. But puh-leaz.

The Lewis and Clark expedition arrived at the Columbia River’s estuary in late 1805. They built a fortification outside present-day Astoria and called it Fort Clatsop, after a tribe that is part of the Chinook Nation.

Though they braved the previous winter in North Dakota, the explorers found the rainy season on the northern Pacific Coast far worse.
The captains decided to head home that spring but found they were also short on boats. So they took one from the Chinook.

The expedition then whitewashed the theft by saying the tribe owed them for six stolen elk, a debt the Native Americans — and historians — say was repaid by delivering three dogs to Fort Clatsop.

Historian James Ronda, an expert on the Corps of Discovery’s dealings with American Indians, said the theft was significant because it violated the explorers’ code of ethical conduct.

“The captains were abandoning a two-year tradition of never stealing from the Indians,” Ronda wrote in his book “Lewis and Clark Among The Indians.”

“Whitewashed”? Really? They hunted down 6 elk for the tribes when nobody else could find any, and that’s worth 3 dogs, which usually just ran about the camp and ate the garbage? I think not. But you have to fit the story to the agenda, and the agenda is ALWAYS that whites are stupid, evil, and malicious.
Hey, they could have traded them Sacagawea for the canoe, and spared us several billion in wasted taxes spent on dollar coins that nobody outside the casinos uses.

The Chinook Indian Nation is not formally recognized by the U.S. government. Federal recognition would make the tribe eligible for economic assistance, land, housing grants and other government benefits.

The nerve of these redskins, not being properly registered and on welfare like they’re supposed to be. Don’t they know their place? Somebody get Nancy Pelosi and the BLM up there to do a teach-in.

Whatever happens with the Chinook’s continued efforts for recognition, the tribe is looking forward to the Saturday ceremony with Clark’s descendants. The canoe will be cleansed, blessed and named, Gardner said. Then, it becomes a living member of the tribe.

So I’m guessing that when the last two quotes are combined, the new apologista canoe will start collecting benefits and develop a drinking problem.

There’s only one small problem with the roots of this story: Lewis & Clark’s company was already adept at making canoes. They had done it several times before, and there is documented proof of that:


They managed to build dugouts when they were ill and starving, so why - in the land of giant trees no less, where wood, hides, and big pieces of bark were easy to come by - would they have to steal a canoe after being well fed and rested all winter long? That doesn’t make sense. Yeah, they kept diaries ... but they knew that those would be read. Maybe there was a bit of editing going on, and some of the real story got a little bit massaged before it was written down? One of the above links is to a page in their diary where it says they were so far unable to negotiate for one of these large canoes, but I don’t know exactly when that page was written. All it really says is that the natives chiseled them out using rather small tools and a reverse mallet technique.

How To Put An Airline Out Of Business

via Roger via SondraK

Southwest Airlines, Feds Investigate Arabic Markings on Planes

Hey, I wonder if it says

الصاروخ المستهدف هنا

? (click)

Mysterious messages that appeared to be scrawled in Arabic writing on the underbellies of several Southwest Airlines jets were being investigated Wednesday by the airline and the FBI, Los Angeles radio station KNX-1070 reported.

The graffiti, which began appearing in February on 737-model planes, has been found more often in recent weeks, according to the report.

The writing appears to have been etched using a chemical process and is visible only after an auxiliary power unit is turned on.

Southwest Airlines spokeswoman Brandy King confirmed that the company is “conducting an internal investigation.” The FBI and Transportation Security Administration were also making enquiries.

The airline denied that the vandalism posed a safety or security threat.

It is now SEPTEMBER. The “graffiti” has been appearing for EIGHT MONTHS now.

It’s vandalism? It’s no safety or security threat? “Graffiti” put on using a special hi-tech paint or substance that only becomes visible in the presence of an electro-magnetic field, or when the wing or tail surface heaters are activated? (what else could an auxiliary power unit do, on the outside of a plane?)

So, it’s obvious that Southwest Airlines has such piss poor security on their planes and/or their ground crews that this can happen, time after time, for most of a year. I’m sure that will really make you feel confident and secure, right? Because really, you’d better be: you are betting your life - literally - when you buy a ticket and board one of their planes. I’m absolutely 100% certain that there is nothing else on any of their planes that they don’t know about, right? Right?

Hey, I’ve got Southwest tickets for $50! Any takers?

[crickets chirping][more crickets chirping][still more crickets chirping]

I didn’t think so.

“Nothing to see here, move along!”

I Googled Myself!

I was going to comment on the current problems, idiocies, and indeed flatulence going on.

I was going to quote a ‘poem’ I read when I was a Tenderfoot in the Boy Scouts.

I knew it was from Mad Magazine. I couldn’t remember the exact year.

So I Googled it, and came up with…me.

Very sad.

“With all these dire warnings
of pain, doom, and strife,
It’s hard to imagine
a fate worse than Life.”

The search term was

with all these dire warnings of pain doom and strife

First hit. BMEWS comments.

I gotta quit quoting myself!

Still don’t know what issue of Mad Magazine that appeared in. I’m guessing 1971-72.

Moonbats stole Moon rock!

You just can’t make this stuff up:

A long-lost, highly valuable Moon rock brought back from the Apollo 17 mission has turned up in the files of Bill Clinton.

The rock was one of 50 presented to each state, and was given to Arkansas while the ex-president was governor. The rock, worth millions of dollars, had been missing since at least 1980 until an archivist found it in old gubernatorial papers. Bobby Roberts, director of the Central Arkansas Library System, told Reuters the archivist opened a box previously archived as “Arkansas flag plaque.” The rock and a state flag were originally affixed to the plaque, but the rock had fallen off and the plaque had been misplaced.

“The moon rock, which is in a plastic container, had fallen off the plaque,” Roberts said, explaining that the rock was at the bottom of the box. “The archivist immediately knew what he had discovered.”

Hmmm, 1980. If my memory serves, Clinton was the poster ‘Boy Governor’ in 1979. I remember because GEO magazine had him as a feature story. I was a freshman at college then. GEO made him sound like God’s gift to Arkansas. So he stole it during his first year as governor. Interesting.


No doubt Sandy Berger sneaked it out in his socks.

The Brothers Grimm Griff

Robber shoots himself while trying to pull handgun

LANCASTER CO (PA)—A Lancaster County man shot himself in the leg while trying to pull a handgun on his victim during a robbery, deputies say.

The shooting happened at 5267 Pleasant Plains Road around 11:30 a.m. Upon the arrival of deputies, Darick Mcgriff, 22, was found at his house, 3707 Fork Hill Road, with an apparent gunshot wound to the leg. He was there with his brother Joel McGriff, 26. About 100 yard away, other officers met a robbery victim.

After a detailed investigation it was determined that Darick and Joel McGriff approached the victim on Pleasant Plains Road and went around to the side of the house with him, according to a release from the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office. Darick McGriff then demanded that the victim give him the property in his pockets. Darick McGriff took a quantity of cash from the victim and demanded additional property. Darick McGriff then attempted to pull a handgun from his pocket and accidentally shot himself in the leg.

Both the McGriff’s fled the scene. Both have been charged with armed robbery. Darick McGriff was also charged with possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

The victim was uninjured during the incident, and both McGriff brothers remain incarcerated awaiting a bond hearing.

I think he’d better sue the gun company right quick. Pesky pistols, always going off when you yank them by the trigger. Product liability!!!

Democrat Economic Ignorance 101

There is nobody in this country who got rich on his own — nobody

This is Democrat Elizabeth Warren, running for the US Senate in Massachusetts.

Pardon me, Warren, nobody ever said that. People get rich because they have a product/service that others are willing to pay for. (unlike the government job you’re running for.) To get rich takes two things:

1) I have a product/service.
2) I have people willing to pay for said product/service.

The only people that get rich on their own are Democrats in the House or Senate. They steal from us the old-fashioned way: they use the IRS. They certainly do NOT provide a product/service I’d pay for!

Today’s Chess Problem 9/22/11

First, Wes solved the previous problem. I just quoted his solution because it is the ‘book’ solution.

Qa4+ QxQ else black looses a Q
Nc7+ Kf8
RxR+ Qe8
RxQ Mate

I’m posting this next one with misgivings. My habit when going through problem books like these is to pencil in a √ next to a solved problem. I must have improved since I first did this. The book shows moves that I’d not play as White now. Not saying White would win, but if Black does win, it’s a much harder row to hoe than the book shows. No forced win that I can find.

But, it’s the next one in the series. Maybe one of you BMEWS players can find what I haven’t. Won’t be the first time I’ve found the book is wrong.


1. … ?

Black to move and win. White’s back rank is weak. Objectively true: White controls less space, and is still undeveloped. And most of White’s pieces aren’t near enough to defend the White King. But that pin on Black’s d5 Rook is nasty.

Have at it! I’ve busted Black’s book moves at least three ways from Sunday. (anyone know the origin of that phrase?)

Oh yes, I think the score is now:

Wes: 2
Drew: 1
ozarkmatt: 1

If I’m off, let me know. I probably should keep count. Especially as I post more of these.

Fined for hiring too many people!?

His name is Peter Schiff. It sounded familiar. Didn’t take long to find out why. I read his 2007 book Crash Proof. He’s pretty much a doomsayer on the economy. He admits that in his testimony before the US House. He is a CEO and the most egregious part of his testimony is the following clip: He was fined for hiring too many people.

I’m stunned. For two reasons. The first, and most important, reason is that I cannot find anything in the Constitution that gives the Federal government the right and authority to tell a businessman how many people he can hire. The only limit is how many people a businessman can afford to hire. (Even then, I wouldn’t hire anyone unless I had a need to do so.) Secondly, of course, is that in this current economic slump, don’t we want businesses to be hiring? They shouldn’t be fined more than they already are under existing employer mandates. (healthcare, SocSec, other payroll taxes…)

“In my own business, securities regulations have prohibited me from hiring brokers for more than three years. I was even fined fifteen thousand dollar expressly for hiring too many brokers in 2008. In the process I incurred more than $500,000 in legal bills to mitigate a more severe regulatory outcome as a result of hiring too many workers. I have also been prohibited from opening up additional offices. I had a major expansion plan that would have resulted in my creating hundreds of additional jobs. Regulations have forced me to put those jobs on hold.”

All’s Well That Ends Wells

Saving Jesse

Conservation/Renovation of Medieval Jesse Window at Wells Cathedral in UK begins


The Jesse Window at Wells Cathedral is one of the most splendid examples of 14th century stained glass in Europe. It dates from about 1340 and, considering its age, is still remarkably intact. Fortunately, the window has survived the vicissitudes of time and British history (narrowly escaping destruction during the English Civil War) and so what we see today is basically how medieval glaziers designed and created it and how our ancestors viewed it before us.

Less than two hours west of Peiper’s house, over in southwest England, a bit past the charmingly named town of Shepton Mallet, south east of Cheddar, south west of Bristol, north east of Glastonbury, on the south edge of the Mendip Hills - in other words, about where Camelot was - is the small city of Wells. It has been incorporated as a city since 1205, even though the current population is about 11,000. This ancient place was given it’s name in a blunt, no-nonsense way because there are two major springs there that give clear water. And in thanks for those founts, the place has been sacred ground since before time. Wells Cathedral sits on the site of an earlier Saxon church, which replaced a Roman shrine, which replaced an earlier ancient shrine of the Britons dedicated to the Goddess. Holy grounds, Highlander, since forever. It has been a Christian church since the year 705 at the latest; the font survives from Saxon times.

As its name shows, the ”quiet Cathedral city of poetic imagination,” so charmingly situated in a hollow under the Mendip Hills, is a place of springs, wells and fountains. Tradition tells that “it was precisely because of those waters” that, in AD 705, King Ine, at the suggestion of St. Aldhelm, Bishop of Sherborne, built a minster church to the honour of St. Andrew. The famous springs, after which the town is named, had probably been venerated from at least the Iron Age. The dedication suggests they were a sacred site associated with Anu, the Celtic Mother-Goddess later adopted by the Romans.

The cathedral was built across nearly the whole of the Middle Ages, from 1176-1490. It was the very first Gothic church in England, using the then-revolutionary pointed arch. While the outside is an archetypal Gothic splendor in white stone, it is rather simple, almost restrained when compared to excesses of many of the Andalusian cathedrals of the same era, even though the outside of Wells was originally decorated with more than 500 gilded statues of saints and other notable figures, of which 300 are still in place.


Inside this grand edifice are some of the most elegant and peaceful examples of medieval vaulting that can be found; magnificent fornications* that managed to escape the desecrations of the English Civil War. The whole complex is so fully and so skillfully detailed that it would take a week to view properly, and probably years to fully appreciate, from the statues to the famous Scissors Arch, to the still working whimsical 1390 pre-Copernican clock in which the sun orbits the earth, and two pair of mechanical knights joust each other every 15 minutes while a mechanical quarterjack rings the bells with his hands and feet. But if you can’t visit as 300,000 people a year do, Google. Once again there are thousands of photgraphs and hundreds of pages available online.

big pic link: Jesse window and vaulting at Wells

The last picture above is the choir in the quire. This has to be one of the oldest organized singing groups on earth; they’ve been at it for 1102 years now, many hundred years longer than this cathedral has even existed. Religion at Wells is old.

But I’m doing my best to be concise here, which is mighty difficult given the wonders of this place. There is so much more here that I am not even mentioning, but I do want to get (finally!! Drew, you’re a windbag, I swear!!) to the heart of the post: the restoration of the Jesse Window.

Works begins on Jesse Window at Wells Cathedral

Work is set to begin on a £500,000 project to restore an historic 14th Century window at Wells Cathedral. The Jesse Window is a stained glass window depicting the genealogy of Jesus dating back to Abraham.

Conservation work is set to begin on 29 September and will involve releading selected areas of glass and cleaning the paint layers. In 2010 custom-made barriers of glazing panes were attached to the stonework of the cathedral to protect the window.

The window is situated at the east end of the cathedral and dates to about 1340. The cathedral’s dean, the Very Reverend John Clarke, said: “Recent inspections have shown that some of the lead is bowing. “Lead glass panels are bulging and loose. More significantly the medieval glass is suffering the effects of condensation and mould growth. “This is in turn attacking the painted layers on the glass causing the paint to peel and the glass to corrode.”

The window was made using yellow, red and green glass as well as silver stain, a compound of silver applied to the glass which can create hues of pale yellow to deep orange.

The Jesse Window is shown, a bit out of focus, in the picture with the vaulting above. Here’s another partial shot that shows the Skycell interior airship taking ultra-high resolution digital photographs of it, which is yet another fascinating story about Wells. And I haven’t told the story about how the chimneys once fell down and killed the Bishop and his wife.


So it’s a bit of good news, part of the enormous and never ending work that keeps these old cathedrals alive and vibrant.  An art show based on the Jesse Window is scheduled for mid October -

An Exhibition of Paintings by Richard Pomeroy, to coincide with the restoration of Wells Cathedral’s famous 14th-century stained glass window. 9 - 16 October 2011. The Chapter House, Wells Cathedral. The Tree of Jesse was a development of biblical imagery in medieval story telling. In part it is a tracing of Jesus’ ancestry much as the Anglo Saxon Chronicles emphasised Alfred’s ancestry to justify his position as King of Wessex.

Better Late Than Never

Georgia Executes Inmate Troy Davis

Georgia executed Troy Davis on Wednesday night for the murder of an off-duty police officer, a crime he denied committing right to the end as supporters around the world mourned and declared that an innocent man was put to death.


Davis was declared dead at 11:08 p.m. The lethal injection began about 15 minutes earlier, after the Supreme Court rejected an 11th-hour request for a stay.

“Justice has been served for Officer Mark MacPhail and his family,” state Attorney General Sam Olens said in a statement.


Hundreds of thousands of people signed petitions on Davis’ behalf, and prominent supporters included an ex-president and an ex-FBI director, liberals and conservatives. His attorneys said seven of nine key witnesses against him disputed all or parts of their testimony, but state and federal judges repeatedly ruled against him—three times on Wednesday alone.


Davis’ supporters staged vigils in the U.S. and Europe, declaring “I am Troy Davis” on signs, T-shirts and the Internet. Some tried increasingly frenzied measures, urging prison workers to stay home and even posting a judge’s phone number online, hoping people will press him to put a stop to the lethal injection. President Barack Obama deflected calls for him to get involved.

“They say death row; we say hell no!” protesters shouted outside the Jackson prison before Davis was executed. In Washington, a crowd outside the Supreme Court yelled the same chant.

I am not familiar with the details of this case at all, but if what Ann Coulter writes about it is even reasonably accurate, they had him dead to rights.

It’s nearly impossible to receive a death sentence these days—unless you do something completely crazy like shoot a cop in full view of dozens of witnesses in a Burger King parking lot, only a few hours after shooting at a passing car while exiting a party.

That’s what Troy Davis did in August 1989. Davis is the media’s current baby seal of death row.

After a two-week trial with 34 witnesses for the state and six witnesses for the defense, the jury of seven blacks and five whites took less than two hours to convict Davis of Officer Mark MacPhail’s murder, as well as various other crimes. Two days later, the jury sentenced Davis to death.

Now, a brisk 22 years after Davis murdered Officer MacPhail, his sentence will finally be administered this week—barring any more of the legal shenanigans that have kept taxpayers on the hook for Davis’ room and board for the past two decades.

It has been claimed—in The New York Times and Time magazine, for example—that there was no “physical evidence” connecting Davis to the crimes that night.

Davis pulled out a gun and shot two strangers in public. What “physical evidence” were they expecting? No houses were broken into, no cars stolen, no rapes or fistfights accompanied the shootings. Where exactly would you look for DNA? And to prove what?

I suppose it would be nice if the shell casings from both shootings that night matched. Oh wait—they did. That’s “physical evidence.”

Now the media claim that seven of the nine witnesses against Davis at trial have recanted.

First of all, the state presented 34 witnesses against Davis—not nine—which should give you some idea of how punctilious the media are about their facts in death penalty cases.

I guess the news story quoted here, from Fox News, is their liberal bias shining through, what with them being all “fair and balanced”. 34 witnesses not 9? Oh, uh huh, “key” witnesses ... more important than the other ones ... and the “key” part is decided by whom? Riiiiiight. Crivens, the guy’s own friends saw him do it and testified as much. And the shell casings from both shootings matched. And Davis himself disallowed the recant testimony of 2 of those waffling witnesses!

I think this may be another case of blacks being above the law because they are black, and therefore allowed to get away with anything (like OJ) because other blacks were mistreated in the past. Therefore even arresting one is raaaaaacist. Um, no, that’s not how it works.  But wait! Hold on a second!

With death penalty opponents so fixated on Davis’ race—he’s black—it ought to be noted that all the above witnesses are themselves African-American. The first man Davis shot in the car that night was African-American.

Now that makes a whole new kettle of fish, doesn’t it? Or does it? Black guy commits a crime against another black guy, a whole passel of black people witness it and testify, and the jury who convicts him is more than half black. Guess we’ve got to put the Race Card back in the deck until next time. Ah, if only it was Oprah Winfrey pointing all this out, instead of lily white fish belly pale Ann Coulter. Then it would all be Ok, right?

One For Peiper

Peiper is on vacation, so I’ll make a few posts on his behalf. This one is right up his alley.

Traveler Plague Spreads Across Britian

Dale Farm gypsies start up ‘illegal’ new site

TRAVELLERS from the illegal Dale Farm site are setting up a new camp 60 miles away in Luton.

At least 20 caravans have been taken to a picturesque park in the Bedfordshire town — and travellers said up to 40 more would soon arrive.

Council chiefs in Luton said they had started eviction procedures — as the travellers continued to fight moves to evict them from the Dale Farm site in Basildon, Essex.

One of the movers warned: “There’ll be 40 more caravans coming from Dale Farm. We have nowhere else to go.”

Caravans began arriving at Stockwood Park, a 100-hectare site near the M1, on Monday evening. One man was allegedly seen pulling up in a mobile home and using boltcutters to break a lock on park gates.

Cars dropped off caravans in the park before heading off to pick up more, locals said.

One [local resident] called police but said it took an hour for officers to show up.

The resident said: “We don’t want Dale Farm’s problems here. The police and council should have responded quicker to stop them getting on the land.”

Here we go again. The worthless Plod hamstrung by PC, and outnumbered by the violent, slave holding scum and their git, take their bloody time before showing up and doing nothing.

Travellers at the new camp — 60 miles from the Dale Farm site at Basildon, Essex — were unrepentant yesterday as their kids played happily in the park.

On Monday the High Court granted the Dale Farm families an 11th-hour reprieve, banning bailiffs from clearing the barricaded camp until Friday.

Irish traveller Flint Devons, 29, who lived at Dale Farm for seven years, said the threat of eviction had made him ill.

He said: “I moved to Luton rather than wait for the bailiffs because my health was suffering.

I can end your suffering, mate. Somebody pass me that SMLE and it will all be over in just a second. With a bit of luck I can stop the whole lot of you from suffering too.

Stockwood Park, near M1 junction 10, has a rugby club, football pitches, 18-hole golf course, riding stables and children’s play area.

Luton Borough Council yesterday began legal action to remove the travellers from the park.

A spokesman said: “The council was made aware of the encampment and immediately started the standard legal procedure for eviction. We expect to move them on very soon.”

Good luck with that. They’re here to stay, so you can kiss all those local amenities goodbye. Best to move the horses now before they’re stolen or turned into stew.

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.
