Hey! Let's all be a pain in Dumya's ass. Co-Sponsor Kerry's bill.

Sorry you hate Blogger Comments Daisy, and thanks for the joke.

Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; its conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effort. Why do you hate America?

From Norbizness

As you may remember, the Houston Chronicle issued the world's most asinine endorsement of the incumbent, concluding with the following laugher:

"The Chronicle believes Bush, if granted a second term and freed of the need to appeal to the extreme factions of his party, will regain his bipartisan effectiveness at solving problems."

I mean, that's like picking the Longhorns over the Sooners while Mack Brown continues to draw breath.

His bipartisan effectiveness at solving problems?!!!? Regain?!!! What a loopy world we live in.
Well, let's see how bipartisan he is with all the new appointments he has to make.
Happy Fucking Monday
Update: Looks like it's going to be Monday for the next 4 years!

"There's no way we can ever get 60 out of a hundred votes. We'll have to rig it like everything else."

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist on Thursday urged Democrats to stop blocking President Bush's federal court nominees and hinted that he may try to change Senate rules to thwart their delaying tactics.

That's right, "delaying" tactics. Just delaying the inevitable.
State Takeover Of Free Airwaves Begins
Good to know where KOCO and ABC stands.

KOCO Will Not Air 'Saving Private Ryan'
A Statement From KOCO-TV's
President And General Manager
"It has been a subject of considerable
discussion within our station as to whether 'Saving Private Ryan' is
appropriate for broadcast prior to 9 p.m.
The movie has been recommended by the motion picture industry itself for mature audiences only due to its language and violent content.
Recent discussions by the Federal Communications Commission
have established new legal standards for what broadcast stations may and may not
broadcast prior to 9 p.m.
Until the FCC or the courts clarify those legal standards, we are left guessing as to
whether the artistic, social or historical significance of programs such as
'Saving Private Ryan' is sufficient to insulate us from liability. We have
an obligation to our viewers, as well, to consider our local market and how
best to serve them.
We asked ABC for permission to air 'Saving Private Ryan' at 10:35 p.m. to broadcast it in the 'safe harbor' time period established by the FCC and, to our disappointment, were refused. As
a result, we were left with the only alternative to preempt the show.
We regret that decision by ABC since this movie possesses significant artistic,
social and historical value and its presentation on Veterans Day -- at a time
when our nation is at war -- is a fitting tribute to the coverage and honor of
those who so bravely serve and have served in the defense of our nation’s
Brent HensleyPresident, General

You should have aired it anyway! Have some balls for godsakes!

Janis has a nice story, complete with Donkey's and Fire.
A couple of nights ago, it was thundering and lightning. I had my grandson and the power went out. I had him in one arm and feeling along the walls to get to the flashlight with the other, and he was just giggling away. Thought I was putting on a great show for him.
A few weeks earlier I showed him an animated hippo (linked from Daisy) singing "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and it terrified him! I've never seen him afraid of anything else. I can't even hum "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" without getting wary looks now.

Evangelical Christians flexing post-election muscle

DENVER The Colorado-based head of an evangelical Christian group is meeting this week with White House officials.

The Reverend Ted Haggard of Colorado Springs says he'll discuss the filling of any Supreme Court vacancies.

The president of the National Association of Evangelicals says he doesn't believe Supreme Court justices should be subjected to a "litmus test" on abortion or other issues, but they also shouldn't be constrained by prior court decisions.

The influential Christian ministry Focus on the Family also wants supporters to contact Republican senators and oppose Senator Arlen Specter's appointment as Senate Judiciary Committee chairman.

The Pennsylvania Republican has suggested the Senate won't approve justices who want to overturn legalized abortion. Specter later said he was speaking about the likelihood of Democratic filibusters.

The nation's highest court could see as many as four vacancies during President Bush's second term.

OK, I've been listening and trying to figure out what it is that the 58 million people that voted for Bush want. Before the election I thought that they wanted abortion to be illegal and for gay people to not have the same rights as straight people and they were willing to ignore everything else to express that. It turns out that is exactly what they wanted and it turns out there are a lot more of them than I thought there were.
Evangelical Christians are mighty and powerful. Evangelical Christians, you won. Congratulations.
Evangelical Christians, please use your power to make the President quit running our country into the ground financially so the rich can get richer. Please use your power to make the President stop the raping and polluting of the land that doesn't belong to us but to the future.
Please use your power, Evangelical Christians, to help this country in ways we all want, show we have more in common than not and that we don't have to be a totally divided nation. Don't make concessions to the dark side of your chosen party. You don't have to, you have the power.

I'm a surfing fool today so I can't remember where I got this but it's freaking me out.

20 Questions

Friday, November 05, 2004

How would I have behaved if Kerry had won?

A woman at work had been telling everyone how she was going to vote on the various state issues. I asked her why she was going to vote "yes" on #711 (the ban on gay marriage). She said, "Because I'm a Christian." I said "Christ taught that everyone should live with the same dignity and respect and judgment should be left to God.". "Well, that's not what my preacher says." was her reply (and the end of the conversation-this is where I work) So Thursday she comes into the office, says "How'd you like that election?" and starts doing a dance and chanting "I love it, I love it."

I got this today;
A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her
altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him, "Excuse
me, can you help me?
I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know
where I am."

The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, "You're in a hot air
balloon, approximately 30 feet above a ground elevation of 2346 feet
above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and
100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

She rolled her eyes and said, "You must be a Republican."

"I am," replied the man. "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically
correct, but I have no idea what to do with your information, and I'm
still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help to me."

The man smiled and responded, "You must be a Democrat."

"I am," replied the balloonist. "How did you know?"

"Well," said the man, "you don't know where you are or where you're
going. You've risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot
air. You made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and you
expect me to solve your problem. You're in exactly the same position you
were in before we met, but, somehow, now it's my fault."

I mentioned in a earlier comment the fatass loser that called me at work and cackled out a scary Kerry poem on Wednesday.

I can't imagine how readers of this blog must see me, what with all the cussing and ranting but, I will tell you honestly that in my daily life I earn and deserve respect for the work I do and, I take great pains with the way I conduct myself and treat others.
I'm just shaking my head now.
I am at a loss.

A nightmare I'm having

MSNBC Front Page news

Bush holds the lead
The White House claimed victory Wednesday morning after President Bush won Ohio and Florida, according to NBC News. John Kerry’s campaign refused to concede, insisting he would win Ohio when all the ballots were counted — which might not happen for days.

* Republicans retain Senate
* GOP keeps control of House
* Eleven states ban gay marriage

To ease the tension a tad.

I just want to say Good Luck to all Democrats, from Moderates to Liberal Scum,
like me. 24 hours from now we will know that is is time for the hard work of repair and recovery to begin or it is time to pack for camp. I'm thinking that it's going to be time for hard work and I hope we will all be just as diligent at watching our Democratic elected officials as we have been on this faux-Republican administration. I love you guys. Thanks for being great company through this madness. Send us good vibes Daisy.
