My Way - News: "'As we promised the mujahideen, we have beheaded the American hostage Paul Marshall after the deadline that the mujahideen gave to the tyrannical Saudi government passed,'"
Nuke 'em from orbit it's the only way to be sure.


RTGA (Reading through gay article...)


I'm not a statistician, so I don't know if these numbers are indicative. They polled about 0.3% of their population, men and women, between 18 and 59. An additional 0.7% said they were bisexual. But the most telling information was:
Statscan asked people whether they considered themselves heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual, rather than asking respondents whether they had ever had a sexual relationship with someone of the same sex.

Quebec reported the highest number of homosexuals or bisexuals at 2.3 per cent, followed by British Columbia, New Brunswick and Ontario.

Statscan also said that more younger people reported they were either homosexual or bisexual. Two per cent of the 18-to-34 group self-reported as being homosexual or bisexual, while 1.2 per cent of those between 45 and 59 said they were homosexual or bisexual.

Two things sream out at me: 1) they're asking people to identify with a group rather than describe their behavior and 2) I always knew there was something funny about them Quebecois.
Sorry about the lack of postings. I was tied up.

Religous Right to Bottle Canadian Water


The Globe and Mail: "Just 1% of Canadians say they're homosexual"
I love the power of my BlogIt context menu

Well No Shit


I could have told you this on September 12th

Yahoo! News - Report: U.S. Responded Clumsily to 9/11 Attack: "U.S. aviation and military officials responded clumsily to the Sept. 11 attacks and a White House order to shoot down hijacked planes did not reach Air Force jets until after the last airliner had crashed, a special commission said on Thursday."
And in other news Pearl Harbor caught off guard

Kids say the darndest things!



"I think John Kerry is an asshole too, Mr. Bush."

Two Idiots in the night



New York Daily News - Home - Lloyd Grove's Lowdown: O'Reilly walks out of Fahrenheit 9/11 screening: "So it was a tad awkward when O'Reilly, trying to sneak out of the Ziegfeld Theater and almost at the exit, came jowl to jowl with Moore himself."

Frankly I could give a crap about either of these two. I'm not even sure why I read the article but the jowl line is great.

If Al Franken was in the story we'd have the making of a pretty good joke

Real hate radio fans know that O'Reilly is just in it for the money.

Scapegoat or Affirmative Action Success Story?


This is just amazing. You don't normally get to see this kind of career suicide up close and personal like this. She's admitting that either she a) followed illegal orders, or b) is completely and utterly incompetent as to what happens under her command.

LONDON - The American general who was in charge of Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison claimed she was being made a scapegoat for the abuse of detainees, and said her successor once told her that prisoners should be treated "like dogs." A spokesman for Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, accused of making the "like dogs" remark, categorically denied the charge.

In an interview with British Broadcasting Corp. radio broadcast Tuesday, Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski said Miller told her last autumn that prisoners "are like dogs, and if you allow them to believe at any point that they are more than a dog then you've lost control of them."

[ . . . ]

Karpinski said was unaware until November that the International Committee of the Red Cross had visited the jail and expressed concerns about detainees' treatment to U.S. officials. She said she did not see the abuse photos — believed to have been taken late last year — until late January.


"I didn't know in September, I didn't know in October, I didn't know ever" about any abuse, she said.
[More . . . ]



This is also what a burning bridge looks like.

Maybe affirmative action success story is too strong - how about just a strong argument for re-ordering how the reservists are assigned.

Saving Shawn the effort





I'm Grand Moff Tarkin and I approve this uniform.

Ahhh, but the uniform is so wonderfully versatile....


A little velcro here, a little more there and voila! Instant General. Tear off a few velcro strips and instant Private.


What more could you ask for? With this newest design, who needs dogtags???

I'll save you the effort




The Army's new uniform looked better when it was last seen on the Eastern Front.
I liked my outfit. After spending five years in the seventies dressed like busmen, they went *back* to the cracker jack uniform

O-Day



On June 13th, 1986 the Olsen family brought upon this world their two funny looking daughters.

They are now 18 year old multi-millionaires.

Will you be the first to see their O-face?
Ha! Beat you to it!
