Chucky Schmucky - Solid as a rock


Schumer Asserts Iran War Would Destroy G.O.P.
Plus, Chuck Says Clinton Would Help at Top Of Democratic Ticket

Bombing Iran, says Chuck Schumer, would be a big political loser for Republican candidates in 2008.

“It would change the landscape against them, big time,” Mr. Schumer, the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said about a scenario in which the Bush administration launches a military attack on Iran before leaving office. “I don’t think they are likely to do it, because they are so weak—not because they are chastened—but I also think it is very likely to be a negative political for them.” More here:

"Big political loser?" -- Is that the important thing to you, SCHMUCKY SCHUMER? What about right and wrong -- what about the huge consequences of nuclear proliferation -- What about them threatening to wipe Israel off the map? What about our allies, agreements, and treaties? What about all that?

The only thing that's important to these jackass libs is politics and power. That's it. Your life doesn't matter to them in the least. Neither does the safety of our allies or the honor of our country.

Liberals can't understand what went wrong

S.F. Cancels Halloween Street Party

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The hundreds of thousands of people who usually flock to an annual Halloween street party here are being warned to stay home or go elsewhere after several episodes of violence in recent years.

City officials have advised would-be revelers through fliers, public service announcements and juvenile probation officers that they won't find many treats in the Castro District, home in past years to the largest Halloween happening in the San Francisco Bay area.

What they will find are hundreds of extra police officers, shuttered restaurants, stepped up sobriety checks and no bus or train service after 8:30 p.m.

"This is really a public safety decision," said Supervisor Bevan Dufty, who represents the Castro and spent the better part of a year trying to arrange an alternative city-sanctioned gathering. "I'm disappointed my message is one of, 'Please don't come.'"

The festivities started decades ago as a homegrown celebration for San Francisco's gay and lesbian community, but has drawn a scarier element in recent years. In 2002, five people were stabbed. Three years ago, someone wandered the crowds wielding a chain saw. (Chainsaw -- HAHAHAHA -- good, clean fun) More here:

Yes -- here in San Francisco -- bastion of idiot liberals -- we never punish our criminals very severely -- we are always very tolerant -- we can't understand how the situation has become worse and worse and finally out of control -- we just don't get it -- *scratching collective empty heads*.
Also -- I love how the idiot libs allow their idiocy to affect us all -- now NONE of us can have fun at the party .. and they don't even take responsibility.

Idiot Senators to have "hearing"

WASHINGTON — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada has been derided for saying that global warming contributed to last week’s wildfires in Southern California.

Conservative political blogs mocked him. Skeptics complained he was using a natural disaster to push his party’s energy agenda. The Nevada Republican Party said Reid had “lost touch with reality.”

On Tuesday the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming announced a hearing:

“A Spark Neglected: Wildfires and Global Warming,” it labeled the proceedings scheduled for Thursday.

“Select committee to examine link between changing climate, frequency and intensity of wildfires,” the description continued.

A committee spokesman said the hearing “was prompted by the wildfires out West and the view of some scientists that the increasing size, frequency and intensity of these fires is affected adversely by global warming.” A panel of scientists will testify.

In case you didn't know -- Harry Reid -- DIMOCRAT -- announced the fires were caused by global warming -- and then quickly backpedaled on the issue when confronted about it -- but now he's going to have hearings -- oh jeeeezus.

LMAO -- "A panel of scientists will testify." Oh - please -- spare me. What tells me they all get funding from the federal government to "study" global warming.

A damn HEARING in the Senate. Hey -- why don't you Senators have hearings on how to do tax reform -- or stop illegal immigration -- or repealing heavy regulations on energy companies?? Huh? You're a bunch of useless jackasses.

Now you listen here you ignorant-assed liberals -- you stop us from cleaning out the forests and then wonder why they burn like hell. You raise your little lib kids so there is no pain in their punishment and then wonder why the little shit-for-brains burns down half of Southern California. I wish only the libs had to pay for their idiocy -- but they drag us down with them.

Teacher Indoctrination

Teachers' Muslim dress order

A SCHOOL was yesterday accused of MAKING teachers dress up as Asians for a day – to celebrate a Muslim festival.

Kids at the 257-pupil primary have also been told to don ethnic garb even though most are Christians.

The morning assembly will be open to all parents – but dads are BARRED from a women-only party in the afternoon because Muslim husbands object to wives mixing with other men.

Just two members of staff – a part-time teacher and a teaching assistant – are Muslim.

Yesterday a relative of one of the 39 others said: “Staff have got to go along with it – or let’s face it, they would be branded racist. Yes -- everyone must go along quietly or risk the witch-label.

“Who would put their job on the line? They have been told they have to embrace the day to show their diversity. But they are not all happy.”

The day aims to belatedly mark Eid, the end of Ramadan.

Sally Bloomer, head of Rufford primary school in Lye, West Midlands, insisted: “I have not heard of any complaints.

“It’s all part of a diversity project to promote multi-culturalism.”

Haven't heard a complaint? Here's one -- STOP BRAINWASHING THE KIDS, JACKASS!!

Traitorous jackasses

LMAO -- this commie is closing all dissenting media and tossing dissenters out of the country -- yet -- these brainless morons (Cindy Sheehan ... and everyone like, such as ...) can't rush to meet him fast enough.

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — British supermodel Naomi Campbell met privately with President Hugo Chavez on Tuesday, becoming the latest in a series of celebrities hosted by the Venezuelan leader.

Campbell flashed a smile to reporters as she arrived at the presidential palace, but said little about what she hoped to discuss with Chavez.

"I've been here before actually," she said. "A beautiful country, very tropical. You've got great waterfalls."

Then, before turning to walk inside, she added: "I'm not going to be political. Thank you very much."

Last month, Chavez met in Caracas with American actor Kevin Spacey, who praised the Venezuelan government's efforts to support film-making. The Venezuelan President also has hosted recent visits by Hollywood stars including Sean Penn and Danny Glover.
Yes -- the "such as" comment was making fun of the Miss Teen America (or whatever it was.)


Liberal parents + kid with matches = Dead people

SANTA CLARITA, Calif. (AP) - A prosecutor will be asked to consider the case of a boy accused of starting a massive wildfire by playing with matches.

Fueled by ferocious desert winds, the fire quickly spread, burning more than 38,000 acres and destroying 21 homes.

The boy, whose name and age were not released, admitted to sparking the fire on Oct. 21, Los Angeles County sheriff's Sgt. Diane Hecht said Tuesday.

"He admitted to playing with matches and accidentally starting the fire," she said in a statement. More here:

Pugilist's Mustache


It's a brave man who would risk such a fine mustache in the violent confines of the boxing ring. Bruising of the mustache can often cause temporary handlebar weariness or even in some cases acute follicular seizure. Professional fisticuffs may be the sweetest science, but it has led to many a malformed philtrum.


I learned what a philtrum was on this blog about mustaches of the 19th century.

Here's a pic of that house that burned in Ocean Isle. Now I see how that kid jumped into the canal. More here:

Monty Python's "Argument"

Lefty media -- crying again


Was Arnold Sexist to Grab Claire Shipman's Hands?

Yes -- before we do anything else, let's try to cast upon him a witch-label (sexist, racist, sexual predator, etc) -- you know -- since we don't have anything substantive to condemn him with. I'm not a huge fan of Arnold -- but if the media is after him, he's probably OK.

On CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday, host Howard Kurtz asked ABC's Claire Shipman about California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger grabbing her hands during an interview about the wildfires. "Would he have done that to a male correspondent?"

KURTZ: What were you thinking when Schwarzenegger grabbed your hand and accused of you hating good news?

SHIPMAN: Well, my first thought was, this is unusual. You know? And then I thought, when is he going to let go of my hands? He held my hands for the entire answer.

Hey, Claire -- tell ya what -- maybe he held your hand instead of slapping the crap out of you like you deserve. You were only there to make a sensational story -- and since you couldn't find one, you go for this -- oh yes -- the American people are all fooled.

Go pack sand up your ass you dumb snatch.

As a side note, I love how the media has learned how to ascribe a witch-label to a person so that all of society knows they can agree to hate you immediately.

Just like bigotry -- only against the "politically correct class of people."

Totally objective throat-ramming media

From Newsbusters:

It appears that the hypocrisy of reporting global-warming alarmism stories has no bounds.

NBC Universal’s “Green is Universal” initiative is sending staff across the planet to either cover or cause global warming. That effort “takes an unprecedented look at Planet Earth.” Three members of the ‘Today’ crew – Matt Lauer, Ann Curry and Al Roker – will emit 24.9 tons of carbon to go to the ends of the earth to show viewers climate is affecting the planet. That number is more than three times what a typical American emits in a whole year. (See video here.)

“Well, the journey has begun,” “Today” co-host Matt Lauer said on the October 29 broadcast. “‘Today’ is going to the ends of the earth to report on the changing climate and examine the limits of human exploration in an unprecedented simultaneous broadcast from the top, the bottom and the middle of the world.”

Yes -- and all last weekend, CNN was broadcasting "Planet in Peril."

LMAO -- they're cramming this stuff so far up your ass you won't even have to digest before you crap it out upon society in general.

BELIEVE -- BELIEVE -- PLEASE, OH PLEASE, BELIEEEEEEEEEEVE.

Kids are getting dumber & dumber

Faxed my congressman again just now

I sent him a fax this morning, asking him to vote for this "SAVE" legislation.

He turned out to be an original co-sponsor of the SAVE act ... and he's a Democrat.

I found this out because NumbersUSA e-mailed me about it and gave me a link to send a thank-you fax.

SAVE = Secure America thru Verification and Enforcement (Immigration)

Anyway -- I faxed him again -- this afternoon -- to let him know of my appreciation of his support for this bill.

Took me about one minute -- including the personalized "PS" I wrote.

Are these guys related?

Did you know about this??

DEBKAfile discloses developing Bush-Putin deal to Iran’s detriment. A US concession on Europe-based missile shield - in return for Russian withdrawal of nuclear aid to Iran and backing for tough sanctions

Its outline surfaced Tuesday, Oct. 23, in Prague when US secretary of defense Robert Gates proposed a possible delay in activating the planned missile interceptor base in Poland and the radar site in the Czech Republic until an Iranian threat was “definitely proved.” In Washington US President George Bush opened the door to accepting Vladimir Putin’s offer of the use of the Azerbaijan base. Moscow’s proposed quid pro quo is to be its withdrawal of nuclear aid to Iran and backing for tough sanctions.

DEBKAfile’s military sources add: If this deal goes through, the Islamic Republic’s strategic options would shrink dramatically between abandoning its nuclear ambitions or else facing crippling penalties.

Read DEBKAfile’s Special Report below on this potential breakthrough understanding

Two things:

a) I've linked to Debka here before -- but if you don't know about it, now is the time to bookmark it and check it for news now and then.

b) I think some radio talk-show host acted as if he thought of this recently and acted like everyone should call him a genius for "figuring it out."

Uh -- WTF is THIS??

Fench guy recognizes disguised jackass

Yes -- American media are so used to being unabashed idiots they were stunned recently when their normal behavior got called "stupid" and cost them an interview. Yes -- Americans are so used to the media being complete jackasses, nobody even notices -- but a French guy noticed.

Who was it Klown? Who was it and what did they do?

Here's the scoop, hoppage.

------------------

French President Nicolas Sarkozy walked out of an interview with US CBS television news show 60 minutes, according to a clip of the show released Sunday in advance of the interview's airing.
A clearly disturbed Sarkozy stood up muttering in French about the question, which was not heard, in a short publicity clip put on the Internet ahead of the 60 Minutes broadcast Sunday night.

"You asked me that question," Sarkozy seems to say as he pulls off the microphone, stands up and walks away from the interviewer, who appears confused.

Sarkozy, whose office announced October 18 that he had divorced his wife Cecilia, is known to be particularly prickly about questions on his personal life.

He is also shown in the clip for the segment entitled "Sarko L'Americain" saying, "What an idiot," in apparent reference to his own press secretary.

"He's smart, energetic and tempestuous," the 60 Minutes clip said in promoting the show.

It was not clear when the CBS interview was conducted.

---------------------

French President Nicolas Sarkozy showed flashes of temper and abruptly terminated a television interview aimed at introducing him to US audiences. (Get that folks? Walking out on no-class jackass is now a "flash of temper.")

In the 60 Minutes interview, broadcast in the US on Sunday, the French president sparred with the reporter, called his press secretary an imbecile, said he was too busy to make time for a "stupid" interview and ended the whole conversation abruptly when asked about the state of his marriage to Cecilia.

The Sarkozys' divorce was announced about two weeks later.

"If I had something to say about Cecilia, I would not do so here," he said before cutting off further questions.

In two interviews, a brief one aboard a plane and a more formal one several weeks ago, he expressed his admiration for both the US work ethic and its pop music.

Asked about his father's fears years ago that anyone with a Hungarian last name like Sarkozy could not succeed in France, he said one thing he admires about the US democracy is its openness and opportunities to all kinds of people.

"You can be called Schwarzenegger and be governor of California," he said.

LMAO -- here's the video -- she gets left sitting there like the no-class jackass that she is. So far, I really like the new French presidink.

Public service for non-cogs

This is a PSA (public service announcement) from the Klown -- if you're not part of the cognoscenti, read this, understand it, act on it -- or stay the fuck off my blog. You have to be a damn FACTOR to read my blog -- my blog isn't for plain old everyday jackasses ... ehhhhh, but I digress.


That's right folks -- this site will let you fax your Reps and Senators in one minute flat -- and for FREE. (Well -- I donated $10 bux to them last year and I will again in 2008.) When you go to the site (bookmark it) and look up toward the top -- about an inch under the word "USA" is a flashing link --- "fax congress free."

Anyway -- this site is mostly about immigration reform - but you can say anything you want about any subject whatsoever. Once you sign up (be sure to limit your e-mail preferences) you can fax your congressmen in a flash. It figures out who your congressmen are from your zip code when you sign up - you don't have to keep entering it.

The faxes are pre-made with a "PS" area at the bottom where you can add your own thoughts; however, you can also delete the entire body of the fax and replace it with your own thoughts about anything -- remember, it doesn't need to be about immigration.

For example -- if you find out your congressman is a Democrat, you can fax him and say "Stop being such a JACKASS."

If he's a Republican, you can fax him and say "Stop being such a JACKASS."

See? Very versatile site.

Seriously -- this site is VERY useful -- you know -- for real Americans who aren't completely anesthetized by drugs, alcohol, and the mainstream media (The Jackasses.)


By the way -- I just sent a fax to my Rep this morning -- asking him to vote for the SAVE act -- which stops conferring citizenship on the anchor-babies of illegal aliens.

Government = Idiots

From J-Walk Blog:

Governmental Email Screw-Up

For $25/hour, they could have hired a geek who actually knows something about email: House Panel Screw-Up Reveals Whistleblower Email Addresses.

This summer the House Judiciary Committee launched an effort to collect tips from would-be whistleblowers in the Justice Department. The U.S. attorney firings scandal had shown that much was amiss in the Department, and with the danger of retaliation very real, the committee had set up a form on the committee's website for people to blow the whistle privately about abuses there. Although the panel said it would not accept anonymous tips, it assured those who came forward that their identity would be held in the "strictest confidence."

But in an email sent out today, the committee inadvertently sent the email addresses of all the would-be whistleblowers to everyone who had written in to the tipline. The committee email was sent to tipsters who had used the website form, including presumably whistleblowers themselves, and all of the recipients of the email were accidentally included in the "to:" field -- instead of concealing those addresses with a so-called blind carbon copy or "bcc:".

And then...

The committee later sent out a second email attempting to recall the original email; it, too, included all recipients in the "to:" field, according to a recipient of the emails.

Cheney's email address was also on the list.


These same peeps are in charge of the IRS and Social Security - and they want to be in charge of your health care -- and make life/death decisions for you.

Air America - Liberal radio - Geniuses

Two different radio-hosts/jackass-libs -- on the fires in Southern California:

One says Bush started the fires to distract peeps from the war.

The other says Blackwater started them because they want to build a Blackwater complex in that area.
(I guess Blackwater is the new Haliburton.)

Don't believe me?

LMAO @ the libs -- pure genius I tell you. Bush has fooled them all again -- it's a fire for oil.

Just as smart as American Government

Robert Mugabe - Government Genius

When Nomatter Tagarira, a spirit medium, claimed that she could conjure refined diesel out of a rock by striking it with her staff, ministers in Robert Mugabe’s Government believed that they might have found the solution to Zimbabwe’s perennial fuel shortage.

After witnessing her apparently miraculous gift they gave her five billion Zimbabwean dollars in cash (worth £1.7 million at the start of the year but now worth one seven-hundredth of that) in return for the fuel. Ms Tagarira was also given a farm, said to have been seized from its white owner during Mr Mugabe’s lawless land grab, as well as food and services that included a round-the-clock armed guard on the rock in the district of Chinhoyi 60 miles (100km) from Harare, the capital.

More than a year later officials realized they had been duped...

Sheesh -- I'm trying to contact them now -- to show them how fast I can turn tacos into fertilizer for animal food crops. They'll be mesmerized -- believe me.

Blind citizen shoots jackass



The Klown wishes the jackass had been killed. This guy had previous arrests etc -- what's to say he won't come back and harm the old guy when he gets out of prison. See -- they shouldn't let these repeat offender people out of prison.

See -- the reason you can't humiliate (or teach) a jackass is because a jackass is incapable of learning by normal means. Being in prison doesn't teach him anything and neither will he learn from this incident. And that means he'll want to come back for revenge.

You can't fault that blind guy but if YOU ever have occassion to shoot someone -- kill them -- it's not a movie -- kill them so they won't come after you later.

Homeland Security strikes deal with New York on driver's licenses

By DEVLIN BARRETT
Associated Press Writer
3:17 PM EDT, October 27, 2007
WASHINGTON

The Bush administration and New York cut a deal Saturday to create a new generation of super-secure driver's licenses for U.S. citizens, but also allow illegal immigrants to get a version.

More here
if you're not afraid of becoming retarded.

OK -- is it just me? I read this sentence and I'm stunned --- absolutely STUNNED. I had to stop reading it to prevent further brain damage.

Does the government do the EXACT OPPOSITE of what it ought to do ALL THE TIME? ... or just when I'm looking?

OK -- they "cut a deal" with the Governor of New York about the licenses -- let's try the deal again -- only THIS TIME -- the Klown is Director of Homeland Security.

Klown: Governor, it is illegal to issue driver's licenses to illegal aliens -- if you do it, I'm going to have you arrested and tried in a court of law. Good day, jackass.

Holy Smoke man - no hummer is worth that.


ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's Supreme Court on Friday ordered the release of a young man who has been imprisoned for more than two years for having consensual oral sex with another teenager.

The court ruled 4-3 that Genarlow Wilson's 10-year sentence was cruel and unusual punishment.

Wilson, 21, was convicted of aggravated child molestation following a 2003 New Year's Eve party at a Douglas County hotel room where he was videotaped having oral sex with a 15-year-old girl. He was 17 at the time.

Wilson was acquitted of raping another 17-year-old girl at the party.

The 1995 law Wilson violated was changed in 2006 to make oral sex between teens close in age a misdemeanor, similar to the law regarding teen sexual intercourse. But the state Supreme Court later upheld a lower court's ruling which said that the 2006 law could not be applied retroactively.

Chief Justice Leah Ward Sears wrote in the majority opinion that the changes in the law "represent a seismic shift in the legislature's view of the gravity of oral sex between two willing teenage participants." More here:


How damn stupid is that? If the Klown were on his jury, he would not have had to worry -- I'd have rotted in the deliberation room before I'd convict a guy in these circumstances.

What the hell is wrong with people that they don't know right from wrong? ... when they let some asshat in a black robe tell them "you have to find according to the law ... ?" ... well -- the law says you can find him not guilty if he's having a trail by jury -- jeez -- seriously -- DUMBASSES!!!!.

Time for Torture, Quothe the Klown

Authorities Investigating Disturbing Crime in Merced County

10/24/2007 - The sheriff's department says a young woman was found burned and barely alive Wednesday morning. Investigators believe the victim was kidnapped from a home in Turlock, and driven across the county line to a field in Ballico.

Merced County sheriff's investigators say the woman was tied up and burned alive about a half a mile down the road. But she managed to walk to a farm where workers found her and called 911.
The men were taking a quick break from their work in the field when they saw what they thought was a Halloween decoration laying on the ground.

"At first I think it's something like plastic, or for Halloween, but when I got close, I see the face nasty, the body nasty, and then I see that it's a person," said one of the workers.

The man, who asked us not to use his name, says he cried when he realized he was looking at a woman who was burned beyond recognition. Still in shock, the men called 911.

Deputy Paul Barile, Merced County Sheriff's Department, says "They told the dispatch center they found a burnt body that was partially restrained."

Deputy Barile says investigators believe the 27 year old victim was brought to this Ballico orchard after being kidnapped in Tulare. They say the suspects tied her up, doused her with gasoline, set her on fire, and left her for dead. But amazingly, the woman survived.

"Apparently after the suspects had left her body, she was able to get out of the restraints or the restraints were burned through," says Deputy Barile.

Deputy Barile says the woman was able to free her feet, but her hands were still tied as she walked to the nearby farm where she collapsed. When emergency crews arrived they flew her to a burn center in the Bay Area.


Ok -- someone tell me why we can't allow"cruel and unusual" punishment for crimes like this. And don't say "it's unconstitutional." I want to know why it has been banned.

It seems to me you can have a law that says "if you deliberately set fire to someone, we're going to torture you slowly for a minimum of 24 hours (one-hour per day) and then kill you at the end of it."

I'm guessing the answer (if any) is going to be the "slippery slope" argument -- and I haven't given it enough thought yet to disagree -- but I shall study it soon.

New York Times - really fooling America

New Yorker Wins Medal of Honor, New York Times Ignores It.
By John Stephenson October 13, 2007 - 18:01 ET
It will be interesting to see the New York Times try to wiggle an excuse to get out of the consequences of this, if they even have the decency to try. It will be interesting to watch the backlash and the apologists. It is interesting, but sadly not shocking.

This doesn’t need much added to it:

Every major daily paper in New York took note of President Bush’s decision to bestow the first Medal of Honor of Operation Enduring Freedom on Navy SEAL Lt. Michael Murphy - a Long Islander who gave his life for his country and his fellow SEALs.

Every paper but one, that is.

And it shouldn’t be particularly hard to guess which one.

Indeed, it wasn’t hard to guess. Every chance they get to reveal our secrets to the enemy, they have delivered. Every chance they get to destroy moral, report negatively on the war efforts, or defame our troops, they go page one. I stand with the New York Post in awarding the Times the Medal of Dis-honer.

What do you think the New York Times focus on instead?

What did the paper of record focus on yesterday? No fewer than three stories reported on how Americans had killed innocent Iraqi civilians.

It makes me sick.

AJ Strata says there will be backlash:

The man died in the service of his country, receives one of its top commendations and the NY Times impugns him by turning their back on his life story. Well, that will create a backlash as most Americans will now be returning the favor to the NY Times and turn their backs on it. I would bet this just may be the moment the NY Times went out of business. Optimistic? Harsh? I’m not so sure. How else do you honor the man and all those who died or were injured fighting for us? Even if you don’t agree with the war or how we got in it, most people would find this an even worse infraction in simple human decency. You honor them by making clear the contempt and disgust we hold for such a petty act. And no pretend excuse will save them from their just desserts. In fact it may make the matter even worse.


Dan Riehl:

Almost shocking and certainly sad. It’s a wonder New Yorkers don’t run the paper right out of town for this one. But then perhaps it mirrors at least a majority of New Yorker’s sentiments, too?

Also - Bill O'Reilly noted that CNN & MSNBC didn't cover the story during prime time.

O'Reilly said that "apparently Lieutenant Murphy was not ready for prime time on our cable competition": "On their prime-time broadcast last night, CNN and MSNBC just said no to Lieutenant Michael Murphy and his proud family." O'Reilly added, "The hard truth is that MSNBC and CNN are not going to report stories that reflect well on the American military because those people over there despise the Bush administration and believe anything positive like American heroes in war zones, detract from their negative assessment of the administration."


Yes -- "objective jourrrrrrnalists" -- if it's a story that makes America look good, they object.

Idiot Democrats

House Passes Bill Intended to Prevent 'Homegrown Terrorism'

H.R. 1955 creates (but does not fund) a national commission to examine the causes of violent radicalization and homegrown terrorism and propose recommendations and legislative strategies for mitigating these threats, the sponsors said.

It also establishes a Center of Excellence for the Prevention of Radicalization and Home Grown Terrorism that's supposed to study the social, criminal, political, psychological and economic roots of the problem.

Rep. Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) called the legislation vital: "We simply don't know how many 'would-be terrorists' are living right next door," he said in a news release.

"Now we will have the ability to analyze our and other nations' experience with this critical issue, propose and adopt recommendations for a safer America, and also protect civil rights and liberties of U.S. Citizens."

Another sponsor, Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.), said the threat of a "'Made in the USA' suicide bomber" has never been greater:

"This bill, though not a silver bullet, will help develop a better understanding of the root causes of homegrown terrorism, and the steps we can take to stop it," she said.

"We must intervene before a person crosses the line separating radical views from violent behavior, create an environment that discourages disillusionment and alienation, and instill in young people a sense of belonging and faith in the future."

Yes -- they took money out of your pocket to "study 'er."

Well -- here's what the Klown thinks:


A - I don't give a damn about the "why's.?"


B - There are three components to "deterrence" -- and "understanding" isn't one of them.


Klown
-- what are the three components?


Here they are in order of importance -- but to be effective -- all three must be present.


1-The SURENESS of punishment

2-The SWIFTNESS of punishment

3-The SEVERITY of punishment


C - This is just like Democrats though -- study it to death -- lawyer it to death -- but don't really "do" anything -- and fight like hell against anyone who "does something." And why are they so cavalier with my money ... A study ... Lord, PLEASE.

Terrorist moron about to get lesson

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli military experts have formulated a plan to gradually cut off electricity and fuel to the Gaza Strip in response to ongoing rocket fire from the Palestinian area, defense officials said Wednesday.

Israel provides more than half of Gaza's electricity, and any power cutoff is sure to make life more difficult for residents of the already impoverished territory. The move is also certain to draw harsh international condemnation.

The plan was formulated by a team headed by Matan Vilnai, Israel's deputy defense minister, and is expected to be approved by Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Thursday, the Israeli officials said. But it is not yet clear when the decision would take effect, they said, speaking on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to divulge details of the planned cutoff to the press.

"It's clear that we have to cut off ... the supply of electricity and the supply of fuel," Vilnai told Army Radio. "We will dramatically reduce the flow of electricity from Israel over several weeks."

Israel's government last month declared Gaza a "hostile territory," clearing the way for Israel to impose sanctions. That decision followed the June takeover of the territory by the Islamic militants of Hamas and constant rocket fire by Gaza militants at towns in southern Israel.

Israel has severely restricted the flow of cargo and people through Gaza's borders since its seizure by Hamas, which Israel, the U.S. and the European Union consider a terrorist group.

Alaa Araj, an economic adviser to Gaza's Hamas government, said the Israeli measure was a violation of human rights that would hurt the entire population.

"Society will be drawn into darkness and daily life will be crippled," Araj said.

Israel can expect international criticism if it moves ahead with the move.
-----------------

Yes - well -- 2 things:

1 - Israel can expect international criticism no matter WHAT they do.

2 - Knock off with the "ongoing rocket fire" and maybe your society won't be "drawn into darkness", you cretinous terrorist jackass.

Man, is this guy dedicated

Jackasses can't stop braying

“One reason why we have the fires in California is global warming,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) told reporters Tuesday, stressing the need to pass the Democrats’ comprehensive energy package.

(A few minutes later in a follow-up question)
Question: Senator, on the California fires, you said that the reason the fires are burning in California is global warming?

Reid: No. Here's what I - I didn't say the reason the fires were burning in Southern California was global warming...

HAHA - "Planet in peril -- Planet in peril" -- what a liberal jackass.

Oh -- and here's what the "Totally objective" jourrrrrrnalists are going to do with these fires.

According to notes from CNN's Monday news meeting network president Jon Klein tells employees to use the California fire tragedy to "push" their "Planet in Peril" special, but warns reporters not to "irresponsibly link" the fires to "Global Warming."

One of my favs - Cop kills jackass

1. Jayson Tirado and his friends were heading south on the FDR on Sunday shortly before 5:30 a.m., as was off-duty undercover Officer Sean Sawyer, 34.

2. Both cars are diverted off the FDR at 116th St. due to an unrelated car crash. Tirado won't let Sawyer cut in. 3. Both cars stop at the light at First Ave., where words are exchanged. Sawyer pulls ahead and turns north onto First Ave.

4. Tirado cuts in front of Sawyer's yellow Nissan at 118th St. Tirado's passengers say Tirado reaches back and comes up with his hand drawn as gun. Sawyer fires his Glock 9-mm. weapon, piercing his window first, then going through Tirado's rear passenger window, striking Tirado under the arm.

5. Tirado drives two more blocks to 120th St., where he collapses; friends try to do CPR on him. Sawyer flees the scene.

Tirado's mother said her son was gunned down like an animal and that Sawyer should be charged. "He killed him like a reckless teenager," Irene Tirado, 54, said through her sobs. More here:

Well -- what to say -- I just love it when a piece of shit criminal jackass gets killed in the process of being a piece of shit criminal jackass -- CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF IT.

Oh -- how much you wanna bet this guy has a "rap sheet." I'm guessing it's an extensive rap sheet. You know why? Because, if these peeps don't have rap sheets, the "objective reporters" also says ".... who has never been in trouble with the law .... ." But somehow, when they're repeat criminals, that part always gets -- uh -- left out.

Funny huh -- sort of like when Democrat has gotten in trouble, they always leave out his party affiliation. But if it's a Republican, it's front page news and they mention party affiliation as much as possible

Hmmm -- a slightly different (one day earlier) version and a picture of the jackass here. BTW -- the "slightly different" version has the guy saying "Meet my Mr. Ruger" to the cop just before pointing his "gun finger" at the cop. It also has the jackass catching up to the cop and then cutting him off etc. I guess these "facts" got lost overnight ... I mean it was the same newspaper.

Democrats harming America - as usual

Turkey will launch military action against Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq despite frantic appeals for restraint from America and Nato, its Prime Minister has told The Times.

Speaking hours before the PKK, the Kurdish Workers’ Party, killed at least 17 more Turkish soldiers yesterday, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey had urged the US and Iraqi governments repeatedly to expel the separatists but they had done nothing. Turkey’s patience was running out and the country had every right to defend itself, he said. “Whatever is necessary will be done,” he declared in an interview. “We don’t have to get permission from anybody.”

Mr Erdogan, who begins a two-day visit to Britain today, also offered a bleak assessment of relations between the US and Turkey, a country of huge strategic importance to Washington. He said that a “serious wave of antiAmericanism” was sweeping Turkey, called America’s war in Iraq a failure, and served warning that if the US Congress approved a Bill accusing the Ottoman Turks of genocide against Armenians during the First World War, the US “might lose a very important friend”.

A Turkish attack on PKK bases in northern Iraq would also cause a serious breach with Washington. Turkey, a predominantly Muslim country of 75 million people, has Nato’s second-largest army, is a key ally in America’s “war on terror” and provides a vital supply route for US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. More here:
He's talking about the bill in Congress that Nancy Pelosi and the usual Anti-American Democrats are trying to shove through. They don't care about allies -- they only want to hurt Bush or America -- that's all they live for.

Gaaaa - Killed by his own Gods

NEW DELHI: A senior government official died Sunday after falling from a balcony during an attack by wild monkeys at his home in the Indian capital, media reported.

New Delhi Deputy Mayor S.S. Bajwa was rushed to a hospital after the attack by the gang of Rhesus macaques, but quickly succumbed to head injuries sustained in his fall, the Press Trust of India news agency and The Times of India reported.

Many government buildings, temples and residential neighborhoods in New Delhi are overrun by Rhesus macaques which scare passers-by and occasionally bite or snatch food from unsuspecting visitors.

Last year, the Delhi High Court reprimanded city authorities for failing to stop the animals from terrifying residents and asked them to find a permanent solution to the monkey menace.

Part of the problem is that devout Hindus believe monkeys are manifestations of the monkey god Hanuman and feed them bananas and peanuts — encouraging them to frequent public places.
I'm starting to think you can replace the word "devout" with "dumbass" in most contexts.

Krauthammer's Razor

Charles Krauthammer
Do you know about Occam's razor?
I doubt it.

Do you know about the Armenian genocide? (100 years ago)
I doubt it.

Do you know about Pelosi's resolution concerning the Armenian genocide?
I doubt it.

Do you know anything about Pelosi, vis a vis, Darfur?
I doubt it.

Do you know Charles Krauthammer?
I doubt it -- hint -- he's also a pundit on TV.

Charles Krauthammer, winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for distinguished commentary, began writing a weekly column for The Washington Post in January 1985. Krauthammer also won the 1984 National Magazine Award for essays. Seriously, when he talks, you should listen.

Klown - what the hell are you talking about?

Short version -- my take -- Pelosi is introducing this "resolution" to piss off Turkey and thereby ruin our ability to use their airspace etc to facilitate the war in Iraq. They've already pulled their ambassador over this foolishness. I mean -- if this was so important -- why wait until 100 years later?? She's a tricky little snatch -- so far, the American people have no clue.

Don't trust the Klown? Look it all up -- Read what Charles says -- all for yourself.

Digitally altered photos

Found it at J-Walk:

Hoping to illustrate its diverse enrollment, the University of Wisconsin at Madison doctored a photograph on a brochure cover by digitally inserting a black student in a crowd of white football fans. The original photograph of white fans was taken in 1993. The additional black student, senior Diallo Shabazz, was taken in 1994. University officials said that they spent the summer looking for pictures that would show the school’s diversity — but had no luck.

lol -- weak -- very weak



I added this -- another 10 historical photos -- (the first one at the link is sickening.) This one makes me very queasy and dizzy. These guys are on lunch break. What happinked if someone fumbled a lunch box? Where were the Democrats back then? OH -- that's right -- peeps had to watch the fuck out for themselves.


They tricked his ass -- LMAO

Found it at J-Walk Blog:

No Money For Woodstock Museum
The Senate voted Thursday to kill a $1 million grant for a museum on the site of the 1969 Woodstock concert, a rare rebuke of a legislative pet project and a blow to the presidential candidate who backed it, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Clinton and her New York colleague, Sen. Charles Schumer, had the funding inserted into the $604 billion education and health spending bill. The Woodstock project's main backer, Alan Gerry, is a registered Republican who recently became a major contributor to the Schumer-led Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

Why would Clinton and Schumer want to waste taxpayer money on something like this?

Nine days after the "earmark" was placed in the bill in June, Gerry and his wife contributed the maximum of $9,200 to Clinton's primary and general election campaign funds. The Gerry family contributed an additional $20,000 to the Democratic Senatorial (Schumer) Campaign Committee, USA TODAY reported Wednesday.

Haha -- he tried to play with the democrats, Clinton and Schumer, and they robbed his ass like a tourist.

I hope they robbed him - before calling cops

From Nothing to do with Arbroath:

A burglar in Montgomery chose the wrong family to mess with, literally. Adrian and Tiffany McKinnon returned home on Tuesday after a week away to find that thieves had emptied almost everything the family of five owned, Tiffany McKinnon said through tears. "Tears just rolled down my face as I walked in and saw everything gone and piles of trash all over my home," she said.

Adrian McKinnon sent his wife to see her sister while he inspected the piles left behind. As he walked back into the sunroom, a man walked through the back door straight into him, Tiffany McKinnon told the Montgomery Advertiser in a story Thursday.

"My husband Adrian caught the thief red-handed in our home," she said. "And what is even crazier, the man even had my husband's hat sitting right on his head."

Adrian McKinnon held the suspect, 33-year-old Tajuan Bullock, at gunpoint and told him to sit on the floor until he decided what to do. "We made this man clean up all the mess he made, piles of stuff, he had thrown out of my drawers and cabinets onto the floor," Tiffany McKinnon said.

When police arrived, Bullock complained about being forced to clean the home at gunpoint.

"This man had the nerve to raise sand about us making him clean up the mess he made in my house," she said. "The police officer laughed at him when he complained and said anybody else would have shot him dead."


Sounds like the robber had the mindset of a lib.

Mixed up tattoo

From Nothing to do with Arbroath:

A Poole woman who thought she had "Mum" tattooed in Chinese symbols on her back has spoken of her shock at being told it actually read "Friend Come Hell."

Mum-of-one Charlene Williams, of Canford Heath, had the tattoo done on her lower back four years ago.
The 19-year-old was perfectly happy with the three-symbol design until last week when it was spotted by a Chinese woman.

She said: "I was just bending over to my little girl and this woman came in and started screaming Evil, evil - very bad!' She added: "It was awful. I can laugh now but at the time I was fuming. For four years I was walking around with that.

"I'm upset as well as angry because it was for my mum. And it was just such a shock when this lady started saying Evil' at me."

Yes -- are you SURE it doesn't say "Friend cum here?" -- I mean it IS in the small of her back. Do I have to solve EVERYTHING?

Crystal ball sets fire to house


A woman returned home to a house full of smoke after a crystal ball set fire to her lounge.

Firefighters said the crystal ball on the window sill had refracted sunlight on to the curtains, starting the blaze.

Watch manager Dave Cooper, of Dorset Fire and Rescue Service, said: "The conditions were just right with a low, strong October sun." He added: "It was a most unusual incident. The glass ball had literally refracted the light and set fire to the curtains."

The ball was a present to Margaret Padwick from her husband 40 years ago, but Margaret, a grandmother-of-nine, has never believed it held mystical properties.

She said: "I have never used it to read fortunes. It used to reflect the light all around the house. It was quite beautiful."

"After what has happened I just wanted to get rid of the blooming thing. I told the fire brigade to take it away."

Who puts a baby in a microwave?

Man who put baby in microwave to plead insanity

An attorney for a man accused of injuring his 2-month-old daughter by putting her in a microwave oven has filed his intent to use an insanity defence.

Joshua Mauldin, 20, of Warren, Ark., is accused putting his daughter in a hotel room microwave oven in May, critically injuring the child. Investigators have testified that he also placed the girl in a refrigerator and in a hotel room safe.
The May 10 incident happened as Mauldin, his wife and daughter were moving to Galveston, where Mauldin planned to be a preacher.

Investigators found human tissue in the microwave that matched the burns on the left side of the girl's face and her left hand. Police have said the infant was in the oven 10 to 20 seconds.

The girl is in the custody of relatives, recovering from her injuries. Mauldin and his wife, Eva Mauldin, are prohibited from contacting them.


What kind of a jackass is this? I hope this guy gets what he deserves -- but, if he doesn't, then I hope he gets life in prison.

Hillary fund raising non-scandal

From Ace of Spades:


Dishwashers, waiters and others whose jobs and dilapidated home addresses seem to make them unpromising targets for political fundraisers are pouring $1,000 and $2,000 contributions into Clinton’s campaign treasury. In April, a single fundraiser in an area long known for its gritty urban poverty yielded a whopping $380,000. When Sen. John F. Kerry (D-Mass.) ran for president in 2004, he received $24,000 from Chinatown…
...
The Times examined the cases of more than 150 donors who provided checks to Clinton after fundraising events geared to the Chinese community. One-third of those donors could not be found using property, telephone or business records. Most have not registered to vote, according to public records.

And several dozen were described in financial reports as holding jobs — including dishwasher, server or chef — that would normally make it difficult to donate amounts ranging from $500 to the legal maximum of $2,300 per election.
-------------------------------

The tenement at 44 Henry St. was listed in Clinton's campaign reports as the home of Shu Fang Li, who reportedly gave $1,000.
In a recent visit, a man, apparently drunk, was asleep near the entrance to the neighboring beauty parlor, the Nice Hair Salon.

A tenant living in the apartment listed as Li's address said through a translator that she had not heard of him, although she had lived there for the last 10 years.

A man named Liang Zheng was listed as having contributed $1,000. The address given was a large apartment building on East 194th Street in the Bronx, but no one by that name could be located there.

Census figures for 2000 show the median family income for the area was less than $21,000. About 45% of the population was living below the poverty line, more than double the city average.

In the busy heart of East Broadway, beneath the Manhattan Bridge, is a building that is listed as the home of Sang Cheung Lee, also reported to have given $1,000. Trash was piled in the dimly lighted entrance hall. Neighbors said they knew of no one with Lee's name there; they knocked on one another's doors in a futile effort to find him.

Salespeople at a store on Canal Street were similarly baffled when asked about Shih Kan Chang, listed as working there and having given $1,000. The store sells purses, jewelry and novelty Buddha statues. Employees said they had not heard of Chang.

Another listed donor, Yi Min Liu, said he did not make the $1,000 contribution in April that was reported in his name. He said he attended a banquet for Clinton but did not give her money.

Clinton "has done a lot for the Chinese community," he said.

One New York man who said he enthusiastically donated $2,500 to Clinton doesn't appear to be eligible to do so under federal election law. He said he came to the United States from China about two years ago and didn't have a green card.

Oh Oh, Democrats -- if the media finds out about this, you're doomed -- HaHaHa -- just kidding -- we all know the media is just another arm of the Democrat party. They'll drop this tomorrow after the pretense and it'll all be forgotten.

You think it's expensive NOW?

Power Plant Rejected Over Carbon Dioxide For First Time

That's right folks -- the dipshitocrats JUST KEEP COMING for your wallet -- They can never get enough -- no such thing as TOO MUCH.

All in the name of "the people" of course -- just like Red China.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment yesterday became the first government agency in the United States to cite carbon dioxide emissions as the reason for rejecting an air permit for a proposed coal-fired electricity generating plant, saying that the greenhouse gas threatens public health and the environment.
You think electricity is expensive NOW? HAHAHAhahahahaha.

Americans -- YOU must sacrifice


Senator Kennedy -- The Cape Cod Orca -- declares he won't sacrifice.

That's right -- that big jackass has been in the senate for 100 years -- always voting against the oil companies -- and the coal companies - and the nuclear power companies. All these votes -- al these years have cost you money -- LOTS of money -- if you KNEW how much money it would be dangerous. Anyway -- they want to put some windmills 5 MILES OFF THE COAST of Cape Cod -- where the GREAT SENATOR ORCA -- I mean Kennedy, lives.

NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Cape Cod Commission in Massachusetts Thursday denied Cape Wind's application to bury electric cables needed to connect its proposed 420-megawatt offshore wind farm in the Nantucket Sound to the state power grid.

Cape Wind said in a release that it would challenge the Commission decision. The Cape Cod Commission is a local organization created by the state in 1990 to manage growth and protect Cape Cod's natural resources.

Sen. Ted Kennedy and many residents who own coastal property from where they could see the wind turbines on a clear day oppose the project along with some environmental groups concerned about disrupting the patterns of migratory birds and the potential effect on local sea life.

So -- no oil -- no coal -- no nuclear -- no wind. I've known he's been trying to undermine our country for many, many years -- but people couldn't believe it -- no matter HOW MUCH he voted against us. It's a shame -- the same people that didn't get it then, aren't getting it now.

Ted Kennedy - Dipshitocrat - internal enemy. He's never going to retire -- so I hope he kicks the bucket very soon -- the sooner the better.

Harry Reid makes even BIGGER ass of self

Recently Harry Reid and 40 other jackass-DIPSHITocrats signed a letter accusing Rush Limbaugh of being "against the troops." This was ludicrous on it's face but it didn't stop the DIPSHITocrats.

These idiots sent it to "Clear Channel" - trying to get Rush in trouble. They actually thought someone would take the letter seriously. So Rush auctioned the letter -- for charity -- for over 2 million on e-bay. You'd think that would completely embarrass any signatory to that letter who had any self respect.

Well -- it didn't appear to embarrass the DIPSHITocrats. Here's what Harry Reid -- the head DIPSHITocrat in the Senate said today -- on the Senate floor.

"Never did we think that this letter would bring money of this nature. And, for the cause, Madam President, it is extremely good. Now, everyone knows that Rush Limbaugh and I don't agree on everything in life and maybe that is kind of an understatement. But without qualification, Mark May -- the owner of the network that has Rush Limbaugh -- and Rush Limbaugh should know that this letter that they're auctioning is going to be something that raises money for a worthwhile cause." I DON'T KNOW WHAT WE COULD DO MORE IMPORTANT THAN HELPING TO ENSURE THAT CHILDREN OF OUR FALLEN SOLDIERS AND POLICE OFFICERS WHO HAVE FALLEN IN THE LINE OF DUTY HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO HAVE A GOOD EDUCATION.

Unreal -- he tries to insert himself in Rush's good deed. As if he "did it for the children." God, what a scumbag.

Hey Harry -- you are the most disgusting piece of shit to ever hit the floor of the Senate. You're a jackass. The disdain you have for Americans in general is beyond belief.

First you made a fool of yourself with this letter.

Next, Rush made you look like an even BIGGER fool -- which was hard -- but he managed it.

Finally -- you managed to outdo Rush. You're the biggest idiot I've ever seen in Congress. Trying to get some credit for what Rush is doing for the charity -- DISgusting. Of course, it's kind of understandable -- you can't do shit on your own so you try to take credit for the work of others -- come to think of it -- you're just like ALL Democrats.

Here's what the
Grouchy Old Cripple had to say about it:

Hey Harry! You wanna really make a positive statement? Why don't you chip in some of the money you've made from your shady real estate deals? Why don't you try to get the other 40 senators who signed this letter to chip in some money as well? You say you support the troops? Here's a chance to prove it. Limbaugh's giving $2.1 million. (I think Rush is matching the auction, dollar for dollar) What are you giving, asshole? You are a total slimeball or as my friend
Erica would say, you are a total "dooshbag". You make me want to puke!


And here's what Dennis Miller thinks of him:

Crowd steals dying man's groceries

MESA, Ariz., Oct. 3 (UPI) -- The sight of an old man being hit by a truck in Arizona touched off a feeding frenzy among witnesses who allegedly stole the dying victim's groceries.

Not only were the man's groceries taken, but the only person who tried to help him also had his own bags taken.

Mesa police told KPHO-TV in nearby Phoenix that the scavengers could face theft charges if they are eventually tracked down.

The elderly victim was waiting for a bus Tuesday night when a pickup truck swerved off the road and plowed into the stop. The man was sent flying as were his bags of groceries.

As the truck sped off with a white plastic bag flapping on its grill, witnesses began grabbing whatever scattered food they could get their hands on. Boro Mitrovich, who was himself nearly struck, said he ran to help the man and had his bag disappear as well.

"One minute it was on the ground, the next minute it was gone," Mitrovich told KPHO.

Yes -- what tells me that some of those mighty fine, upstanding, "undocumented workers" we're involved in this. Nah -- can't be -- the objective media tells us every day how stupid we are for wanting the borders enforced.

Objective Jourrrnalist

This is why America's shit is in a handbasket today. Every day, "Objective Jourrrrrnalists" tell you that right is wrong, white is black, and spew endless "studies" that have a "finding" which your common sense tells you is imposssible.

And yet -- 1/2 of America believes every word that comes out the magical TV.

Here's one where a Hero kills two shitbird criminals (the Klown posted about it here) and this stupid, idiotic, snatch, tries to make the Hero a criminal and the criminals into a couple of innocents. Her company suspended her -- let's hope they fire her. Here's what the dumb snatch looks like.

DFW Suspends Rebecca Aguilar After Controversial "Ambush"

... But today you will not find the Fox4 story on the station's Web site; there's a page for it, but no accompanying video. (Update: It's available here.) That's because Rebecca Aguilar's piece elicited a torrent of outrage, both on local blogs (chiefly FrontBurner but also elsewhere) and from viewers who began deluging the station with angry calls Monday night and much of the day yesterday. As Trey Garrison pointed out on D's blog:

This is her idea of journalism? Ambushing a 70-year-old man who has been through life-and-death twice in three weeks? "Are you a trigger happy kind of person? Is that what what you wanted to do? Shoot to kill?" Good Lord, I hate the people in this field.

Well, Trey need not worry about Aguilar, at least for a while: Unfair Park has confirmed that Aguilar has been indefinitely suspended, based on concerns about how Aguilar treated Walton. She could not be reached for comment, but Unfair Park did leave Aguilar a message on her cell phone. (When we tried her number in the newsroom, another woman answered and said, "Rebecca isn't available today.")

Wretched bitch.

They got 'im - didn't take long

UPDATE BELOW:

US scientist and DNA discoverer James Watson poses for photographers behind a model of the 'DNA Double Helix', which was discovered by Watson and Francis Crick at an exhibition in Berlin in this Monday, Oct. 11, 2004 file photo.

LONDON - London's Science Museum canceled a Friday talk by Nobel Prize-winning geneticist James Watson after the co-discoverer of DNA's structure told a newspaper that Africans and Europeans had different levels of intelligence.

Watson, who serves as chancellor of the renowned Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory in Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., was to deliver a sold-out lecture at the Science Museum, but on Wednesday night the institution said Watson's comments had gone too far and the event had been canceled.

Call to Watson's book publisher and his office in New York were not immediately returned.

This is not the first time Watson's speaking engagements have caused a stir.

The Independent catalogued a series of controversial statements from Watson, including one in which he reportedly suggested women should have the right to have abortions if tests could determine their children would be homosexual.

In 2000 Watson shocked an audience at the University of California, Berkeley, when he advanced a theory about a link between skin color and sex drive.

His lecture, complete with slides of bikini-clad women, argued that extracts of melanin — which give skin its color — had been found to boost subjects' sex drive.

"That's why you have Latin lovers," he said, according to people who attended the lecture. "You've never heard of an English lover. Only an English patient."


You have questioned the religion of political correctness, my friend -- you are doomed, right or wrong, -- just as sure as a heretic in the Puritans -- just as sure as Copernicus and Galileo.

UPDATE: - "Did I say that? - That's not what I meant." LMAO Every dumbass with pants gets a Peace Prize? Anyway -- they silenced him in record time.

A Nobel Prize-winning scientist from the United States who reportedly claimed black people are less intelligent than whites said Friday he was "mortified" at the comments, and suggested he was misquoted.

Doctor James Watson, who won the Nobel Prize for Medicine in 1962 for his part in discovering the structure of DNA, told the Sunday Times newspaper that he was "inherently gloomy about the prospect of Africa" because "all our social policies are based on the fact that their intelligence is the same as ours -- whereas all the testing says not really."

On Friday, however, Watson said in a statement that he was "mortified about what has happened."

"More importantly, I cannot understand how I could have said what I am quoted as having said. I can certainly understand why people, reading those words, have reacted in the ways they have.

"To all those who have drawn the inference from my words that Africa, as a continent, is somehow genetically inferior, I can only apologise unreservedly. That is not what I meant. More importantly from my point of view, there is no scientific basis for such a belief."
