Government CAN!

Government can, can land men on the moon. Yesterday, July 21, marked the 45th anniversary of the lunar landing of 2 men.

NASA, a government agency, marshalled the engineering power of a nation; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration gave myriads of contracts to the lowest bidder and, working to a common goal and with set standards accomplished an engineering feat which ranks among the greatest of human history. The placque and flag on the moon will not weather; they may well outlast the pyramids as markers of the human race at our best.

All the accoutrements of modern times--the ubiquitous cell phones, velcro, transistors, the inter-Damn-net--came from the space program. "Modern" numbnuts know nothing numbskulls, having starved NASA of funds necessary to forge ahead in space explroration, now say NASA cannot meet any g als.

To that, I say piffle. Even if the Republican'ts, the do nothing party, filibuster family, party of treason, children of the space race, even though they have forgotten that very same space race, I say yes we can. We could accomplish great things if we work together.

Yes we can!

Where Will It End? Goddess Only Knows.

News outlets reported that starting in October a female will fufill the role of Thor, Norse god of thunder, heretofore filled by a man, Thor Odinson.

Fox newscasters lost their minds, complaining this a threat to marriage and traditional gender roles while the universe said, "Hell yeah," and Goddess sez maybe I can finally get help folding wash.

The female Thor will of course get 75% the pay of male demigods, have contreception coverage stripped from Asgardian health insurance, and get no paid paternity leave, which leaves foreign goddesses snickering behind our female gods faces, especially that mouthy bitch Kali except our female Thor would totally kick Kali's ass.

Republicans came out behind female goddesses, as long as they don't get all bitchy and whine about human rights.

Germany 0-2 in World Wars

Germany has just won a 4th World Cup, four out of the 20 held. Kudos to the club and hordes of blonde, long limbed, lingerie model girl friends.

Germany also stands 0 for 2 in World Wars.

Yeah World!

(UnderConstruction)Springsteen, Relevant Again

Haven't listened to Springsteen in years, leaving him behind with the rest of my dreams in the 1980's about my success and finding a love like my first, Wendy Hall.

But life and failure and disapointment and reality reared their ugly heads, carrying me to Meggido all just broken, bare bones.

Then monthly Samaritans brought Bruce's new album, and it kicked me in the balls.

From first tune on the album, the title tune "High Hope," it reached out and grabbed. They amplified a Bo Diddly beat to make a song of a shred of hope amongst despair. The song had an actual bottom end, the kind a subwoofer would use to shake my sternum and piss off the neighbors.

YEAH! Rock and freaking roll!

The addition of Tom Morello-the Nightwatchman and also Rage against the Machine guitarist-- gave the album a harder edge, mostly. If you've seen Tom and Bruce do "Ghost of Tom Joad" on R & R Hall of Fame you might know what the album feels like.

Even the ballads have an edge. @"American Skin" first recorded over a decade ago recounts the true story of Amadou Diallo, shot at 41 times by police officersn stoop. The 4 officers only managed to hit him 19 times.

:hat sufficed to end Diallo's life.

Latin Lesson for Today



The Latin lesson for today comes courtesy of Betty Fokker--The Stay at Home Feminist Mom, and once a student at Univ of Kentucky who actually learned something--regaling us with tale of thunder douche Brandon Smith who opened his mouth and removed all doubt of his status as a moronic Asshat.

Betty gave us this Latin witticism describing Republicans talking about science: "Nas Potest Conine Rectums Copat, We fit our heads up our rectums."

'Nuff said.

Daily Episode of as the LeBron Turns

Pat Riley, ruthless thug, met yesterday in Las Vegas w/ Lebron James and Dewayne Wade and....

It doesn't matter because the three have failed to analyze their recent ignominious loss and draw the obvious conclusion: even 3 superstars need role players to play well. Even Dauphin A'bron James can't carry a team on his own forever, or at least 4 finals in a row.

Latest reports have Chris "can't block out" Bosh soliciting offers from the Houston Rockets for at or near max salary. That makes me chortle with glee as man not worth a Happy Meal. He should never get a max contract. Heat beat Pacers in part because latter the softest 7 footer alive Roy Hibbert. In the dictionary definitions of soft and softer, you'll see pictures of Bosh and Hibbert.

Great Naismith's ghost, how can Bosh keep finding crack smoking general managers to over pay him?

Even more amusing? That Cleveland has traded away their entire roster and every asset the dump has: city hall, polluted Lake Erie, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, plus the nouveau riche owner will grovel on his knees and seek forgiveness for his online rant when LeLoser left Cleveland.

Screw the Heat; I'm an Orlando Magic fan.

On that front, we either have Magic headed by design for a 60 loss season and more balls in the hopper attempting to get top pick next year or have assembled a young, scrappy team who all hate to lose and have athletic talent.

They'll lose a lot but play hard. I'll settle for that.

Glenn Beck Concedes to Liberals

Why do I let it bother me about neo-coservatives: their sheer arrogance, unmitigated gall, refusal to admit error and take responsibility, their their (splutter, gag, words failing...) chutzpah?


When such a chickenhawk chickenshit cheerleader for war as Glenn Beck has a come to Jesus moment and admits the hippy liberals' criticism of President Cheney 's Iraq war correct, you'd think the neocon nincompoops who got literally everything wrong would at least slink off to their crypts and shut the fuck up. STFU!

BUT NO!

Undead vampire ex Presidente Dick Cheney rises from his crypt, licks blood from his fangs and blames Obama, echoed by a tragic Greek chorus of fools: L. Paul Bremer (the man who put the armed Iraqi armed forces and police out of work), the once and still would be king of Iraq Ahmed Chalabi, and Douglas Feith (the stupidest fucking guy on the planet, and Zalmay Khalilzad, among others.


Now these fools and western media point solely to religion as cause for these wars, ignoring decades of coexistence of Shia with Sunni as described inSalam Pax's blog.


We forget at our peril how certain evildoers manipulate and pervert religions to their own ends, to procure and hold onto power like Al Maliki, current Iraqi prime minister but once a butcher shop owner in exile in Egypt picked by Khalizay to run Iraq. Google the Harper's article; I'm sore tired typing out hrefs.


Read truth there and recounted by Robert Fisk at the London Independent.


Then read Chalmers Johnson views on the decline of Empire America, wasting blood and treasure on vain attempts to control oil.


Blood, so much blood, I weep.

Damn!

Juanita Jean at World's Most Dangerous Beauty Salon couldn't mention, but I just have to tell y'all about the Texas Testicle Festval, even though apparently canceled, still subject to shock, awe, and ridicule.

Chickenhawks

We use the term "chickenhawk" in a political sense to refer to those who promote, peddle, and pander to fear to foment war, those like William Kristol, thunderdouche, next to enlist in the Iraqi army, right after ex president Dick Cheney.

Despicable Crook

maltipoo named "Oliver"

An asswipe whose very existence embarasses the rest of the human race, William Rabourn, felt spurned by a female. Instead of picking up his ego off the floor, moving on, and asking out other women, he decided himself some patriarchal god's gift to women, and decided to take his revenge--on her dog.

The asshole broke into her apartment and threw the helpess creature off the third floor balcony.  Apparently, the female, perhaps noting his penchant for irrationality and/or violence, had broken up with him, and then had the gall to reject his sexual advances.

Dude, get over it; get over yourself; use your Pickup Artist Game (PUA) to con some other gullible female into sleeping with you.  Just don't take your failure out on some poor, innocent animal or indulge in other forms of gratuitous cruelty.

We know serial killers usually start out with animal cruelty.  Elliott Roger, UCSB serial killer,  probably started out torturing animals to make up for his lack of self esteem.



William "Trip" Rabourn,
alleged felon.  Women, do not sleep with him.  Hell, don't even talk to him.  If you see him coming, cross to the other side of the street.  Shun him; warn your friends; warn the whole female race.

Can't yet prove it, would would bet my last 1$ Trip sprang from the loins of one William Rabourn Jr., of Springfield, MO, head honcho of a medical consulting group, probably a rich fellow, making young Raybourn the Third a youngster with a new sports car and sense of entitlement; how dare the young lady refuse his obvious charms?

Asshole listed as salesman for, presumably, his daddy's company.  Way to make your own way in the world, Tripp!  Wanna bet he and Daddy voted for Romney and look down on the 47% who don't pay income taxes, forgetting people like me paid 15.3% in Social Security taxes for every dollar we made, to pay for Social Security which now those of that ilk say the country can't afford!  As if riding Daddy's coattails doesn't amount to some form of welfare.

Douche canoe, another blog calls this miscreant mother*****r .  Not sure what that means or if appropriate in post on spoiled little whiny, white manchildren. but the term does have a certain ring.

Honestly, sense this episode probably fueled by acohol and inchoate rage, so will let it serve as reminder to me to treat women with respect, just like my momma taught me.  Hope court mandated counselling works for this kid.  Or his momma whups him.

Hate vs Anger vs Righteous Indignation

A dear friend--OK, guy who goes to my church and barely knows my name but who commands great respect w/ his quiet demeanor--commented on my comment on President Cheney, saying anger becomes cancer destroying from w/in.

Having lost functional use of my legs, last walked in August, have lots of anger.

Can't hate my legs; seeing diabetics who literally lost their legs taught me ignore that anger as would miss them if gone. Can still pedal stationary bike for cardio.

Also, Mama & Jesus taught me not to hate anyone. So really try not to, even Osama bin Laden. Wanted to see him caught and tried in court of law. Never met the man so did not like or dislike the man, (the feeling of disliking, not button on Facebook.) Don't even dislike JEB! Bush, just have strong antipathy towards the man's actions, his policies as governor of FL.

A state budget consultant forecast state contribution to Medicaid would increase for decades. This came before JEB! cut taxes by approx $12 billion.

My mama also taught to save for a rainy day. Too bad JEB! never met momma, as the recent recession devastated the budget of Florida.

Now
governor 48.9% cuts taxes on 1 hand and tells me we can't afford to to expand Medicaid roles, apparently not even for me, a man partially paralyzed, learning to live from a wheelchair, on dialysis, and needing mucho dinero for copays for specialists, Goddess knows how much everyone wants for vascular surgery last week.

Yet I refuse to hate Governor Dick Scott no matter how much I abhor his policies.

Nevertheless when it comes to that demon spawn Dick Cheney, the soulless bastard, vampire rising from his blood drenched crypt, maggot infested pustule on the body politc, I hate the motherf****r, hate him super nova intensity.

At the feet of Pres. Cheney lie hundreds of Iraqi civilians, over 4 1/2 thousand American troops, countless amputated linbs, & legions w/ traumatic brain injuries and countless cases of PTSD.

DAMN him, President Cheney, blood thirsty Master of War, blood slurping beast.

Assholes!

Having screwd the pooch with an ill advised invasion of Iraq--an invasion to find weapons of mass destruction which the United Nations weapons inspectors told us didn't exisit--now these neopconservative idiots want to place blame on Mr. Obama.  More on this later after I calm down enough to write.  But anyone who took time tto investigate in 2002 warned of just this same Shia-Sunni  war in Iraq.

N, even we did not forsee the depth of this disaster.  Al Qaeda did not exist.  Now, a bunch too radical for AllQaeda properf--too RADICAL FOR AL QAEDA, let that sink in for a minute--have used battle experience learned in revolt in Syria to become champion of Sunni cause in Iraq.

The professor Juan Cole explains:
The fall of Mosul to the radical, extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a set of historical indictments. Mosul is Iraq’s second largest city, population roughly 2 million (think Houston) until today, when much of the population was fleeing. While this would-be al-Qaeda affiliate took part of Falluja and Ramadi last winter, those are smaller, less consequential places and in Falluja tribal elders persuaded the prime minister not to commit the national army to reducing the city.
It is an indictment of the George W. Bush administration, which falsely said it was going into Iraq because of a connection between al-Qaeda and Baghdad. There was none. Ironically, by invading, occupying, weakening and looting Iraq, Bush and Cheney brought al-Qaeda into the country and so weakened it as to allow it actually to take and hold territory in our own time. They put nothing in place of the system they tore down. They destroyed the socialist economy without succeeding in building private firms or commerce. They put in place an electoral system that emphasizes religious and ethnic divisions. They helped provoke a civil war in 2006-2007, and took credit for its subsiding in 2007-2008, attributing it to a troop escalation of 30,000 men (not very plausible). In fact, the Shiite militias won the civil war on the ground, turning Baghdad into a largely Shiite city and expelling many Sunnis to places like Mosul. There are resentments.

Those who will say that the US should have left troops in Iraq do not say how that could have happened. The Iraqi parliament voted against it. There was never any prospect in 2011 of the vote going any other way. Because the US occupation of Iraq was horrible for Iraqis and they resented it. Should the Obama administration have reinvaded and treated the Iraqi parliament the way Gen. Bonaparte treated the French one?]

USA! USA! USA!




USA holds on, beats nemesis Ghana 2-1 with late goal.

[NATAL, Brazil — It began with the magical. It ended with the miraculous.

John Brooks, a 21-year-old German-American making his competitive debut for the United States, who was on the field only because a starting fullback was hurt, powered a fierce header into the net in the 86th minute Monday to give the United States a 2-1 victory over Ghana in its first match of the World Cup.

Spurs Win! Spurs Win! Spurs Win!

The Spurs haad the better team, plain and simple.  The more horses you have under the hood, the more likey you are to win the race.

Spurs win game five 104-87, win series 4-1.

[Bosh, who guaranteed victory, finished with just 13 points. He missed all five of his 3-point attempts. Wade's performance will once again raise questions of has his ability declined with age. He scored 11 points on 4-of-12 shooting, at times resembling a player on the downside of his career.]

[They didn't just claim this championship; they tore it from Miami's lifeless fingers with three consecutive annihilations to punctuate the loudest, most heartfelt note of this dynasty. It's a dynasty that might not be over, one that may very well have more life left than the one in Miami that the Spurs just demolished.]

Connie Hawkins - The Hawk



One of Greatest of All Time (GOAT).  Best years robbed from him, but still showed skills matched but never surpassed, the Hawk, Connie Hawkins.

Suck on that King James!
