Jockey Shorts

The Big Boy

Boned Jello
A group of 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, accompanied by two female teachers, went on a field trip to the local racetrack, (Churchill Downs ) to learn about thoroughbred horses and the supporting industry (Bourbon), but mostly to see the horses.

When it was time to take the children to the bathroom, it was decided that the girls would go with one teacher and the boys would go with the other. The teacher assigned to the boys was waiting outside the men's room when one of the boys came out and told her that none of them could reach the urinal.

Having no choice, she went inside, helped the boys with their pants, and began hoisting the little boys up one by one, holding on to their 'wee-wees' to direct the flow away from their clothes.

As she lifted one, she couldn't help but notice that he was unusually well endowed. Trying not to show that she was staring the teacher said, 'You must be in the 5th grade.'

'No, ma'am', he replied. 'I'm riding Silver Arrow in the seventh race, but I appreciate your help.'

As long as you put it like that ...

I'm not up on these things like I oughta be; does McCartney have a Green Card?   But shame on people who laugh at this, myself included.

Q: What's standing between a Beatles reunion?

So before you format that hard drive ...

Boned Jello

This is pretty interesting low-tech solution to what seemed a high tech problem.

 I bought a Western Digital External 500 GB Passport Hard Drive from Woot, and it came formatted  FAT 32.  After several false starts I was able to reformat it to NTFS.  Then, of a sudden, it began a rapid on/off sequence that made it impossible to use.  I hooked it up to my ACER notebook where it ran perfectly.  I was saying bad words, but eventually found this:

Dumb asses at WD sent a a cord that was too long. Before you start your tech war. I used the 6" USB 2.0 cable that came with my Portable USB HDD. And what do you know the dumb thing started working fine. So before you format that hard drive try a shorter USB cable. It has to do with voltage drop recived to and from the port. Ask some one who can explain it. I just know how to fix it.! Good luck

Now, I have to figure out why my NTFS drive now shows a RAW format.  I'm guessing that I didn't mount it properly, and am hoping someone out there can save me more time by 'splaining what to do?

Granny Krugman

The Perfect "Krugman!"

Given my biases, this picture is for me the perfect personification of drive-by media pussies. Oh, I almost forgot.  I found it here, Paul Krugman: About that Conventional Wisdom.   (via Gerard, who  scores with his title link "Paul Krugman: as "The Mole Who Must Be Whacked" )

Soaring costs force Canada
to reassess health model

yes, that model, the one used for Obama-Kare

Having lived in Canada (20 years ago) and finding myself having to access their health care system, I never could understand what the big deal here in the U.S. was all about.  Clearly their system was far inferior to that in the U.S., yet many of the politicians on the left have been going on and on about its virtues for years, as though it served as a model that, somehow, the U.S. should follow.

I think it was Thatcher that said:  "the trouble with Socialism, is that you eventually run out of other people's money".

Too bad that the average Canadian will be paying for this joy ride by putting their health, and the health of their families, in peril.  Of course, they've already been doing that for years.

Viet Cronk Strategy

Deja yada-yada

Viet Cronk
The Viet Cronk Strategy

Either you accept  that Israel has been targeted for extinction, or you snoozed through all of Ahmadinejad's "We will wipe Israel off the map" iterations.  Mothers will  lift cars off  children, and fight Godzilla when loved ones are threatened;  nations ought be no different.  Are we on the same page so far?

Siege Fatigue and the Flotilla Mistake, found in today's WSJ, is my case in point here, because it's representative.

Monday's botched commando raid on the Gaza-bound flotilla has proven disastrous for Israel. World public opinion has united in condemning the Jewish state and the U.N. Security Council has already demanded an inquiry. Closer to home, the strategic alliance that Israel had painstakingly forged with Turkey is in tatters.

The horrific outcome—so far nine killed and dozens wounded—has caused irreparable damage to Israel's image. Even if the video evidence proves beyond doubt that the activists on board the ships were armed and that they were the first to attack, the battle for public opinion (which, after all, is what the flotilla exercise was really about) was lost the moment the first Israeli soldier set foot on the deck of the Mavi Marmara—the Turkish ferry that served as the flagship. [Deja yada-yada]

This is the same rhetoric New York Times reporter David Halberstam (who will here be representative of the ilk) dispatched from Vietnam in the 60-70's.  Seize upon every minor defeat, with the goal of projecting  large scale failure. Written to shape anti-war opinion, and consumed by people who would eventually, despite their better instincts, buy into the concept of winning wars through negotiated settlements.  It was disastrous strategy for Kennedy, LBJ, and 50,000 dead Americans then, and always will be.

 I love Israel's response to the Islamo threat, for the same reason I love Jan Brewer's immigration law, Gov. Christie's refusal to raise taxes; and President Bush's "with-us or against us" proclamationsurvival is winning strategy.  As long as the good guys don't  again listen to David Halberstam and Walter Cronkite.

'Nuff Said
During the last week of December 2004, Medea Benjamin announced that Code Pink, Global Exchange, and Families for Peace would be donating a combined $600,000 in medical supplies and cash to the families of the terrorist insurgents who were fighting American troops in Fallujah, Iraq. In an article dated January 1, 2005, the online publication Peace and Resistance reported that Rep. Henry Waxman had written a letter addressed to the American ambassador in Amman, Jordan to help facilitate the transport of this aid through Customs.- Discover the Networks

Dear Friend,

We are outraged, stunned and broken-hearted that the Israeli Navy has not only intercepted 6 ships that were carrying humanitarian aid to the 1.5 million people in Gaza who are living under an Israeli-imposed siege, but has actually killed and wounded dozens of these brave humanitarian activists. 

This must be a turning point for U.S. policy toward Israel.
Nobel Laureates from Nelson Mandela to Jimmy Carter and Aung San Suu Kyi have condemned Israel's brutal action.  Where is Obama? 

A White House spokesperson stated that President Obama "deeply regrets the loss of life and injuries sustained." We need to hear a STRONG CONDEMNATION of this abominable attack, and it must be accompanied by action: an immediate cut off of all aid to Israel and sustained pressure on Israel to lift the siege of Gaza.

Join us in calling on Obama to condemn the attacks!
Pass it on to your friends and colleagues!

No shades of gray crayons in matters that are clearly black and white.   Code Pink, it's members, and those who abet them, are traitors.  Maybe not among today's overlawyed clerisy; I'm talking Red Dawn ethos here baby. Wolverine!
