This girl has watched too many movies -- She gets a quick dose of reality. When you think of it -- it's like watching a lib turn into a conservative.
Tom Shales Hails Moyers, Wails for Sally Field
By Tim Graham December 30, 2007 - 23:35 ET
In his review of television for the year 2007, Washington Post TV critic Tom Shales bitterly recounted Fox's allegedly political censorship of actress Sally Field at the Emmy Awards, when she said if mothers ran the world, there would be no "goddamned wars." Shales complained that the lack of profanity "befouled" the airwaves: (Yes -- that sounds sane to me)
The Emmy Awards were marred by a dark and perhaps portentous moment that also involved an unexpected -- and in this case, totally unwarranted -- silence. Sally Field was accepting a prize and talking about mothers and war when suddenly the Fox censor chose to delete some of her words before they could go out to America on the time-delayed telecast.
Fox used the absurd FCC crackdown on "obscenity" as its excuse, but (to Shales) the action smacked of political censorship and seriously befouled the American airwaves.
Sheesh -- NO WONDER the libs hate Fox News -- now I understand completely.
About a minute and a half.
Oliver Thompson made arrangements with the staff at the Blackpool Zoo to set the stage for his proposal. During a zoo visit, his girlfriend Emma Morgan was surprised when a six-ton Asian elephant named Marcella delivered a ribbon to her, with a ring attached!
“Elephants are my favourite animals so when Oli told me that I was going to be spending the day in the elephant enclosure I was really chuffed.
“Then, this one elephant came up to me and handed me a ribbon. I didn’t see the ring at first, but then I smiled at Oli and he opened a box he was holding and handed me my gorgeous engagement ring.”
The elephant was carrying an inexpensive version of the actual engagement ring, just in case it was swallowed. Oh, and Emma said yes.
VINTON, Iowa (AP) - It's one thing for Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign to turn down interview requests for the candidate's daughter, Chelsea. But can't a 9-year-old reporter catch a break? Why is it that liberal pieces of shit are always wanting a "break." They want to misbehave constantly and then whine when they receive their due punishment. Hey -- DUMBFUCK, BETH -- perhaps you didn't hear -- SHE DOESN'T TALK TO REPORTERS -- GET IT? -- Only a shitforbrains lib like you thinks there are exceptions for cuteness.
Sydney Rieckhoff, a Cedar Rapids fourth grader and "kid reporter" for Scholastic News, has posed questions to seven Republican and Democratic presidential hopefuls as they've campaigned across Iowa this year. But when she approached the 27-year-old Chelsea after a campaign event Sunday, she got a different response.
"Do you think your dad would be a good 'first man' in the White House?" Sydney asked, but Chelsea brushed her question aside.
"I'm sorry, I don't talk to the press and that applies to you, unfortunately. Even though I think you're cute," Chelsea told the pint-sized journalist. Oh -- isn't that sooo cute -- Beth bestowed the hallowed and coveted title of "jourrrrrnalist" upon her. I'll bet she's mighty proud.
Such is the paradox of Chelsea as she campaigns across Iowa in the closing days before the state's caucuses Jan. 3. Paradox? She sounds pretty consistent to me -- of course, I'm a clear-thinking (read: conservative) American. Of course, being the fine, trustworthy, person you are, you'd have never printed it if Chelsea gave the answer -- would you? Oh noooo -- never would you take advantage and screw someone who "gave a 9-year-old a break."
Tall and attractive, Chelsea cuts an impressive figure on the campaign trail; she plunges enthusiastically into the crowd after her mother's speeches, shaking hands and posing for pictures while asking, "Are you going to caucus for my mom?"
But onstage, Chelsea never speaks; she stands next to her mother and applauds but utters not a single sentence and doesn't even say hello. And reporters covering the campaign have been put on notice that Chelsea is not available to speak to them. An aide follows the former first daughter as she works the crowd, shushing reporters who approach her and try to ask any questions. Yes -- they've been put on notice but their memory is a bit short -- about 5 seconds probably. "Oh -- you mean she's STILL not available to talk to us -- I thought that was just before."
So -- they've been asked not to talk to Chelsea and yet -- they do anyway -- so either their memory is short or they're rude piece-of-shit idiots with no regard for the wishes of others -- YOU make the call.
Famously protective of their daughter's privacy, Bill and Hillary Clinton have taken pains to shield Chelsea from the harsh glare and rough edges of presidential politics. She stayed largely absent from her mother's campaign until December, when she made her first visit to Iowa.
For her part, Sydney looked a bit crestfallen after Chelsea turned her away. But luckily for Hillary Clinton, Sydney's mother has made up her mind to caucus for the former first lady. Yes a CHILD was disappointed for a brief period -- for libs, this is almost the end of the fucking world.
Hey -- Beth -- something tells me, if i stepped on your toe, I'd be smelling it until I washed off the bottom of my shoe.
LOS ANGELES (AP) - In a murderous quest aimed at "cleansing" their turf of snitches and rival gangsters, members of one of Los Angeles County's most vicious Latino gangs sometimes killed people just because of their race, an investigation found.
There were even instances in which Florencia 13 leaders ordered killings of black gangsters and then, when the intended victim couldn't be located, said "Well, shoot any black you see," Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca said.
"In certain cases some murders were just purely motivated on killing a black person," Baca said.
Yeah -- OK -- after 3 paragraphs, something jumped out at me -- these guys are killing the everloving shit out of each other -- but nobody uses "The N Word." No -- not "The N Word" -- gang members never want to perpetuate racial stereotypes -- that would be going TOO far.
Evidence of Florencia 13, or F13, is easy to find in Florence-Firestone. Arrows spray-painted on the wall of a liquor store mark the gang's boundary and graffiti warns rivals to steer clear.
The gang's name comes from the neighborhood that is its stronghold and the 13th letter of the alphabet - M - representing the gang's ties to the Mexican Mafia.
Wha?? Sounds like MS-13 to me. You ever hear of MS-13? NO? Me either.
His followers eagerly obeyed, according to federal prosecutors.
In one case, F13 members came across a black man at a bus stop, shouted "Cheese toast!" and fired. "Cheese toast" is a derogatory name for East Coast Crips, Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin S. Rosenberg said. Yes -- the word "Crip" isn't derogatory enough so they call them "Cheese Toast." Oh man -- Cheese Toast -- that's GOTTA hurt their sensitive wittle feewings. Hell -- no wonder they get so pissed.
The victim, apparently targeted only because of his skin color, survived being shot several times, Rosenberg said. Only because of his skin color -- can you imagine that -- all of us should be very indignant cuz, oh my god are they sinking low.
I mean, we could understand if there was a REASON for the killin's -- a robbery -- somebody calls you "Cheese Toast" -- you know -- SOLID REASONS -- but NOT just because of skin color -- THAT is cause for alarm.
NEW YORK - Messages and wishes for the new year from people around the world will float down on the New Year's Eve revelers in Times Square when the confetti is dropped.
For the first time, anyone can get a message printed on a piece of the multicolored confetti by visiting the Times Square Information Center or by using the Internet to type a message on a "Wishing Wall Online" — http://tinyurl.com/2c5efd.
The message-carrying pieces will be mixed among the more than one ton of confetti, organizers said.
Messages can be serious or silly, said Tim Tompkins, a spokesman for the Times Square Alliance, which organizes the party.
It says "Klown for Overlord" - and the blog url -- Happy New Year, hoppys.
I was reading his blog -- he's a big lefty -- all his readers were posting their results -- the great majority of them scored well below 50%. I actually thought there might be something wrong with the test so I decided to try it.
|You Are 83% American|
You're as American as red meat and shooting ranges.
Tough and independent, you think big.
You love everything about the US, wrong or right.
And anyone who criticizes your home better not do it in front of you!

Hippies are always trying to become one with nature -- and sometimes they succeed.
That's why, when they order hotdogs, they say "make me one with everything."
Trent Young, 39, of Middletown, N.Y., was arrested in his home Thursday morning, police said. He faces charges of second-degree and third-degree rape
Young teaches karate at the Iron Tiger Martial Arts Center in West Milford, N.J., and at his home. The girl was his student, police said. Young allegedly abused her in his home and at the martial arts center.
Police said the abuse started when the victim earned her green belt in 2005. That day, Young had the girl sign an oath of obedience and then took her to another room, where he told her to remove her clothes until she was naked, police said.
Young then sexually abused her, police said. After she put her clothes back on, Young told her it was all part of a test, according to police.
In 2006, Young allegedly pressured the girl to have sex, continuing to say that doing so was part of the oath, police said. Young and his alleged victim had intercourse between 20 and 40 times until October of 2007, police said.
Young told another female student, also 15, to remove her clothes as part of an oath, but she refused, investigators said. LOL @ "Whaaaa? It didna work this time?"
According to the Iron Tiger Martial Arts Center's Web site, Young taught in the New York City school system for seven years before joining the NYPD. The Web site also says he has trained thousands of students in martial arts.

In 1966, the Beatles recorded a short song about banjos, which was included on a Christmas record.
Please don't bring your banjo back
I know where it's been
I wasn't hardly gone a day
When it became the scene
Banjos! Banjos! All the time
I can't forget that tune
And if I ever see another banjo
I'm going out and buy a big balloon.
Click here to go to the link that has the mp3 file so you can hear the song.
I have a friend (JF) who would hurt himself on this thing.
It's about one minute long -- lol @ "who cares what goes on overseas" -- & "it's gonna cause a depression" -- what a dumbass.
It's that weird little "rule" that doesn't allow you to say no, until later.
By signing up for this, you agree to allow us to sell your e-mail, phone number, etc as much as we want -- until you tell us to stop -- and that's IF you figure out it was us that sold your info -- that's right -- and you'll keep getting billed for our product month after month -- until you tell us to stop.
You further agree to continue paying past the original date -- unless, a year from now, you remember to call us up and cancel your "membership." And -- you agree to call us 14 fucking times after that because you just KNOW some weird coincidence will happen and we'll keep on charging you for months and months -- as well as forgetting to refund your money from before.
As far as I'm concerned, the last cool thing politicians did was stop the rude, intruding, "legal" telemarketer jackasses from calling me at dinnertime -- and for that, I am grateful.
The brawl happened at the US-operated Amundsen-Scott South Pole station, located at the heart of the frozen continent. The station, where staff carry out a range of scientific investigations from astrophysics to seismology, is currently being rebuilt in a £76m project.
After reports of the fight reached staff at McMurdo station, the headquarters of the US Antarctic Programme, which is located on Ross Island, a US Air Force Hercules was sent to pick up the injured man and the other worker.
They were flown back to McMurdo, but it was decided the man's injuries were too serious to be treated in Antarctica and he was taken on to Christchurch, New Zealand, accompanied by a nurse and a paramedic.
Many of the McMurdo staff had been expecting a day off for Christmas but support workers returned to work to deal with the rare emergency medical evacuation. More here:
Paris bookstores brim with guidebooks -- including one shaped like a toilet seat -- that tell readers how to help save our planet. (Ha) Yet the dissidents refuse to shut up, even now that Al Gore has won the Nobel Peace Prize and the U.S. government has agreed to negotiate a new global-warming treaty by 2009.
The most conspicuous doubter in France is Claude Allegre, a former education minister and a physicist by profession. His new book, ``Ma Verite Sur la Planete'' (``My Truth About the Planet''), doesn't mince words.
He calls Gore a "crook'' presiding over an eco-business that pumps out cash. As for Gore's French followers, the author likens them to religious zealots who, far from saving humanity, are endangering it. Driven by a Judeo-Christian guilt complex, he says, French greens paint worst-case scenarios and attribute little-understood cycles to human misbehavior. More here:
What a fraud he's perpetuating on the world. If I were Gore, I don't think I'd plan any trips to China after 2015 -- cuz, by then, they'll have figured out this is a fraud -- and China EXECUTES business owners who commit fraud. Funny huh -- an EXECUTED EXECUTIVE.

All presidents have used this power -- until now.
As per usual, the DIMocrats have employed yet another "first in history" method of blocking judicial appointments by George Bush.
Instead of going out of session, as every senate in history has done, the DIMocrat senate has decided to remain in session -- by convening every couple of days for just a few seconds.
While they are in session, they filibuster all the appointees. (Which was their FIRST - first-in-history tactic to block judicial nominees.)
Now -- three things bother me about this:
1 - The conservatives have NEVER used these methods to out & out block every nominee.
2 - They wrote new rules so they don't really have to filibuster -- they just have to THREATEN to filibuster -- and it works the same --- I DON'T FUCKING LIKE IT -- I DON'T BELIEVE THAT'S WHAT OUR FOUNDING FATHERS HAD IN MIND. I BELIEVE THE POLITICIANS ARE PIECES OF SHIT FOR DOING IT.
3 - This means that now the conservatives HAVE to use these same methods to block liberal appointees -- you know -- and to "get even."
Even though I hate liberal judges and judicial activists of any stripe, I think they deserve a vote after their hearing. Any person with a half a brain would say -- let the senators have hearings and have their say on these nominees -- and then give them a vote. But no -- that doesn't serve the purposes of these petty jackasses in Washington. They always have to be blocking or impeding or tearing down -- nevermind the country is going to hell
Hey Klown -- what is going to get the politicians to change?
Nothing -- the ones that are there now, (with VERY FEW exceptions) will not change -- and it will only get worse. I have decided that the ones that are there now are "institutionalized." They have become the problem -- they refuse to listen -- that's why you see a new amnesty for illegal aliens bill every other week. The only thing that is going to make them wake the fuck up, is when a whole shitload of them are voted from office (or even damn near voted from office) -- and then it'll be too late for them -- but maybe the new ones will do some good -- they CERTAINLY could NOT do worse.
Let me ask you -- when is the last time you heard from your representative in Washington -- or your senator? Any of them write you saying "I'm really working hard on such & such?" And I'm not talking about the normal crap either -- I'm talking about your reps calling you to action -- calling for symbolic votes etc so they can use the info on the floors of congress -- or use the info to get the press behind them on an issue. I'll answer it -- FUCKING NEVER & NO.
There's another way too -- take the power away from these jackasses in Washington -- give it back to the states and the people where it belongs and a lot of these problems will go away. Vote for people who believe in federalism.
But Klown, we'll lose if we vote Libertarian etc.
Uh -- you're losing now -- both your say in congress -- and your self respect for compromising your principles.

He approached her and they started talking and getting comfortable, the woman smiling and resting her foot on his shoulder at one point.
Eventually, she asked to see Garrison's penis; he unzipped his pants and complied.
Seconds later, undercover police officers pulled up in a van and arrested Garrison; he was later charged with public indecency, a misdemeanor, based on video footage taken by cops who were targeting men having sex or masturbating in the park. While topless sunbathing is legal in the city's parks, exposing more than that is against the law. More here:
Hhhoaaaaa- man -- that ain't right. I mean -- what gd dyke/homo/lib/feminist is in charge of THIS sting operation.
Oh Klown -- you are such a sexist/homophobe.
Yeah -- you're right -- this sting is on the up and up -- it all seems perfectly fine -- getting rid of the "perverts" and so forth. I don't know what I was thinking there for a second.
***Points at the fireman and hollers "WITCH."***
But -- at least the Klown learned something -- THE KLOWN IS A PERVERT!!!! I gotta go underground, man. Cuz if I were in the fireman's shoes, I'd be going to jail -- big floppy shoes and all -- WHATCHU LOOKIN' AT , JACKASS??
That's right -- it's been two days -- and the cops are keeping everything very quiet -- you know -- cuz somehow, that helps the "investigation."
Sure it does -- cuz if the cops said witnesses said "so and so" -- why, it would be the end of the world -- you know -- since jackasses -- erm -- I mean "public" has no right to know anything -- it might "jeopardize" the investigation.
But Klown, how would it jeopardize the investigation -- isn't the truth the truth?
Simple -- because you keep voting for Democrats who keep writing laws to help slip & fall lawyers --- THAT'S HOW. The simple truth no longer matters -- so congratulate yourselves. I'll bet you're feeling real enlightened about now.

Global Warming Will Save America from the Conservatives...Eventually
This jackass goes on and on about how the floods etc from global warming will kill the conservatives.
Sat., 12/22/2007 - 19:21—Say what you will about the looming catastrophe facing the world as the pace of global heating and polar melting accelerates. There is a silver lining.
Blah Blah Blah - the rest of the "article" here.
The important thing is that we, on the higher ground both actually and figuratively, need to remember that, when they begin their historic migration from their doomed regions, we not give them the keys to the city. They certainly should be offered assistance in their time of need, but we need to keep a firm grip on our political systems, making sure that these guilty throngs who allowed the world to go to hell are gerrymandered into political impotence in their new homes.
There will be much work to be done to help the earth and its residents—human and non-human—survive this man-made catastrophe, and we can’t have these future refugee troglodytes, should their personal disasters still fail to make them recognize reality, mucking things up again.
It should be considered acceptable, in this stifling new world, to say, “Shut up. We told you this would happen.”
Uh-Huh -- and what about "Shut up, we told you it wouldn't.?" Just cram a sock it it you fucking 1960's retread -- and maybe you could cool off a little if you trimmed your eyebrows. And, oh yeah, you look really cool, grandpa, with your sweater tied around your neck. Trying to relive some glory days, are we?
About the author: Philadelphia journalist Dave Lindorff is a 34-year veteran, an award-winning journalist, a former New York Times contributor, a graduate of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, a two-time Journalism Fulbright Scholar -- yep -- he's got all the lib credentials.
Well -- the problem lies with the fact that liberals are impervious to humiliation and embarrassment. This is what blocks them from learning in a normal way.
We must think of a substitute -- for example, if you are in the media and you take sides on an issue (instead of just reporting) -- and then you're wrong -- then we get to -- ohhhhh -- tattoo a jackass on your forehead -- so that people can identify you as an idiot in the future. That way you don't just get to keep being wrong, time after time, but still bray away with abandon. After that, if you do it again, we just draw lots to see who gets to punch your hippie ass in the face.
Hey, Lindorff (what a great name for an idiot) -- something tells me you'd have been wearing a jackass on your forehead after the "global cooling" of the 70's. I mean, after all, WE TOLD YOU IT WOULDN'T HAPPEN.
Following the Christmas celebrations, Greek Orthodox priests set up ladders to clean the walls and ceilings of their part of the church, which is built over the site where Jesus Christ is believed to have been born.
But the ladders encroached on space controlled by Armenian priests, according to photographers who said angry words ensued and blows quickly followed.
For a quarter of an hour bearded and robed priests laid into each other with fists, brooms and iron rods while the photographers who had come to take pictures of the annual cleaning ceremony recorded the whole event.
A dozen unarmed Palestinian policemen were sent to try to separate the priests, but two of them were also injured in the unholy melee.
"As usual the cleaning of the church afer Christmas is a cause of problems," Bethlehem Mayor Victor Batarseh told AFP, adding that he has offered to help ease tensions.
"For the two years that I have been here everything went more or less calmly," he said. "It's all finished now."
The Church of the Nativity, like the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem's Old City, is shared by various branches of Christianity, each of which controls and jealously guards a part of the holy site.
The Church of the Nativity is built on the site where Christians believe Jesus was born in a stable more than 2,000 years ago after Mary and Joseph were turned away by an inn.
One of two suspects in the slayings of six people near Carnation that occurred in the afternoon of Christmas Eve is the daughter of the oldest victims, police said.
Now there are serious questions about why police did not go into the house after a 911 hangup call was placed the night of the murders.
Police made two calls back to the residence, but both went to voicemail. When deputies arrived at the scene, the gate was locked. When deputies were unable to gain access, they left. More here:

This is a pretty interesting test of your world geography knowledge. Warning: it gets real hard about level 7 - Uh ... East Timor - baking powder?
The woman said she had planned to take her mother to the Big Island, but her mother died unexpectedly months before the planned trip.
KITV's Keoki Kerr reported that the Los Angeles Times first reported the story in Wednesday's edition of the newspaper, and Hawaiian Airlines told KITV Wednesday afternoon that it made a mistake in not refunding the woman all her money.
Jane Wilkens bought first-class Hawaiian Airlines tickets for her mom and one of her mom's friends to travel from California to Kona so they could stay at the Hilton Waikoloa on the Big Island.
She made the purchase in August for a trip to Kona next April. But in September, her mother unexpectedly died from a blood clot, several days after back surgery.
When she canceled the reservations, Hawaiian Airlines said it would charge her $75 per seat for a total of $225 as a processing fee.
"I just thought it was wrong. Like I told them, it was an unimaginable event, and I was just shocked that they wouldn't refund the money," Wilkens said.
Wilkens said she complained to Hawaiian Air several times about the cancellation fee, noting that another airline and the Hilton Waikoloa canceled reservations with no fees.
"I could also understand if the ticket was for next month or next week, but the fact that it's seven months away -- they're certainly going to sell the tickets, so filling the seats up is not in question," Wilkens said.
At first, Hawaiian Airlines defended the fees, but after the Los Angeles Times published the story Wednesday morning, the airline apologized to Wilkens and let her know a full refund is on the way. More here:
Yes -- after getting caught, they apologize. Will anything else happen to them? For lying and cheating and attempting to steal? What should happen?
So recently they had a meeting in New Orleans -- to talk about demolishing some old slums to make room for new development. Well -- it turned into a knockdown drag-out fight with jackasses protesting the demolition. Have you heard about it?
No? I didn't think so -- cuz the media can never present you with a view of black people that you might MISCONTRUE as racist -- your dumbass might get the wrong idea. Everyone knows that only white people can be presented as racist.
Anyway -- amongst the clusterfuck, one "lady" named Sharon Jasper (lol @ "Jasper" -- isn't that a slave name?) yells different racist remarks at a white guy -- but the "OBJECTIVE JOURRRRNALIST" captioned the pics thusly:
She looked familiar to me so I focused on her -- trying to remember -- but then I started craving pancakes.
Mixed in with the rent-a-rioters who stormed the New Orleans City Council meeting over public housing were a few homegrown thugs who refuse to be weaned from the public teat without a finger-pointing, racial epithet-hurling fight.
So, does she look familiar? This Sharon Jasper is the same Sharon Jasper profiled in the New Orleans Times-Picayune sulking in her government-subsidized apartment with hardwood floors and HUGEtastic (60") television and complaining that it’s a “slum:”
Sharon Jasper, a former St. Bernard complex resident presented by activists Tuesday as a victim of changing public housing policies, took a moment before the start of the City Hall protest to complain about her subsidized private apartment, which she called a “slum.” A HANO voucher covers her rent on a unit in an old Faubourg St. John home, but she said she faced several hundred dollars in deposit charges and now faces a steep utility bill.
Heaven forbid The Man expect her to pay her own damned security deposits and utility bills like the rest of us!
“I’m tired of the slum landlords, and I’m tired of the slum houses,” she said.
Pointing across the street to an encampment of homeless people at Duncan Plaza, Jasper said, “I might do better out here with one of these tents.”
Jasper, who later allowed a photographer to tour the subsidized apartment, also complained about missing window screens, a slow leak in a sink, a warped back door and a few other details of a residence that otherwise appeared to have been recently renovated.
Click here for the video of her yelling the racial slurs:
She's prolly in REALLY BIG trouble with Al not-so-Sharpton and Jesse Jackasson.
Below is but a sample of what the liberal morons at the Daily Kos were posting after a recent (Sep) Hillary speech.
Thank you Hillary for calling out Petraeus for what he is, a liar and a distorter of facts.
While I still prefer an Edwards/Obama ticket, I just wanted to show some progressive blogosphere love here for Hillary for her calling a spade a spade here, and subsequently setting the right wing howling.
The same thanks applies to MoveOn, for their not allowing Petraeus to parade around like some untouchable holy priest without being called on his crap.

Here is a list of the 50 states. Red ones voted for Bush (conservatives) - Blue ones voted for Kerry (liberals.) The list shows the states ranked by charitable giving. Very interesting huh? For a larger/clearer pic, click here:
Yes -- The libs are very generous -- you know -- as long as it's YOUR money they give away.
Another difference between libs and conservatives:
When a lib's wife tells him to pick up Granola on the way home from work, it means he has to stop at the day care center.
Here's the video from youtube...
Here's what I find so offensive about these idiots.
They feed this animal sweet potatoes and dog food. They had a vet swing by to check the health of Jessica and to find out if she's able to get pregnant. You know- it would be SO CUTE to have a baby hippo in the house. I'm SURE that Jessica wouldn't fit into the classic stereotype of an overly protective wild animal mother. You know- because we're one with her... we're family (gaaaaaaaaa).
The vet tells them that it's fine to feed Jessica sweet potatoes- just not 20 kilos of them a day. The high sugar, low fiber and lack of protein aren't what a healthy hippo needs to be consuming. What she needs is what they feed hippos in zoos- lucerne hay and horse feed. Of course, after 5 years of eating sweet potatoes and dog food, Jessica is not interested in hay and horse feed.
These people make some feeble attempts at feeding her a healthy diet but after 1/2 hour of trying, they give up and decide they know best- she'll be having sweet potatoes and dog food.
They make their case by reminding us all that Jessica is not penned in and has free range to eat all the food that the wild hippos in the area eat so it's ok. Never mind that she has chronic diarrhea and that she's underweight for her age. Mommy and Daddy know what's best for her. Just because this is their first pet hippo, it doesn't mean they don't know exactly what they're doing.
Keep in mind that the whole reason they called the vet in the first place was because they want to get this hippo pregnant. There are several problems with this.
1. She's underweight by 200 pounds- hippos reach puberty based on weight- not age
2. Hippos typically reach sexual maturity when they're 7-17 years old... Jessica is 5 years old
3. Hippos are active at night- Mommy and Daddy insist on giving Jessica a massage at night and lulling her into sleep. You know- so she fits into THEIR schedule- not her natural schedule. Since she's sleeping while other hippos are active, she doesn't get socialized to hippos. This is good for Mommy and Daddy but bad for Jessica. (To get a hippo pregnant, she needs to have intimate contact with a male hippo. To have intimate contact, you must first have ANY contact).
4. Jessica is terrified of other hippos. When she was a year old, she suffered an "unprovoked" attack by a pregnant female hippo. Scroll up to where I mention these people are trying to get Jessica pregnant and expect her to remain her "normal", docile self.
5. There was a bull hippo in the area who had expressed some interest in Jessica. Since she wasn't overly afraid of this hippo, Mommy and Daddy (M & D) encouraged her to become better acquainted with him (Charlie). In doing so, M & D got within 6 feet of a wild, male, potentially sexually aroused hippo. Daddy admits that any of his game warden friends would have said he was crazy for doing this and that the rifle by his side would do little to prevent harm coming to them, yet there he is. In classic birkie style, he puts himself, others and an animal in danger for the sole purpose of proving how he's "one" with the wild.
6. When Daddy goes to pick up his weekly truckload of sweet potatoes, the green grocer gives him a picture of several local men posing behind the hippo they shot. This hippo was found eating the farmer's crops and it's common practice to shoot animals who damage farms or human dwellings. M & D get tears in their eyes as they acknowledge "it's Charlie". They don't go into the fact that hippos can be definitively identified by the scar patterns on their sides. They don't need to bother with such tom foolery- they know it's Charlie in their hearts- a FAR more certain method of knowing. Mommy and Daddy discuss the brutality of killing a hippo- a common practice in their area.
7. Mommy doesn't have the self-discipline to set some basic ground rules- like NO HIPPOS IN THE HOUSE. They've replaced the door knob to the house 20 odd times since that's how Jessica gets into the house and onto their bed- to sleep. Of course at 1800 pounds, she breaks the bed repeatedly. Daddy decides enough is enough and makes a steel door to keep Jessica out of the house. Mommy is not happy with this and sits on the couch weeping for poor Jessica as she tries to find her way into the living room.
The best part of all of this story is that in pursuit of their ideology, they're disregarding all the warning signs that this hippo is going to kill them some day. As she approaches maturity, she gets more and more aggressive- they call it being playful.
Many people know about the "Big 5" in Africa. Lions, Cape Buffalo, Elephants, Rhinos and Hippos. These are the five largest and most lethal (to people) animals in Africa. Of these 5, guess which is BY FAR the most lethal? That's right- hippos.
In closing, my only hope is that this saga ends the same way as "Grizzly Man".
Anyway -- It came to a tragic end when the gingerbread FEMA showed up.

Then a trim man, identified by a screen graphic as Dr. Ian Smith, comes by to help him to his feet, and says:
"Go on, laugh. But it's not easy getting back in shape. That's why we created the 50-Million Pound Challenge. It's a new way to help our community get healthier together. Get started at 50-Million Pounds dot com. "
As captured in the photo, as he says "our community" he points to himself, emphasizing "our" as he pronounces it. I'm jarred. Going to the web site confirms things. This is a State Farm weight-loss program explicitly targeted at African-Americans. The program's logo is shown to the right.
So, am I being too touchy? Perhaps. Why don't we do a mirror-image ad?
Cut to a tennis club. A slightly paunchy white guy gets so distracted by the looker on the next court that he runs right into the net post. The white doctor coming to his aid says the same thing as Dr. Smith, again pointing to himself, and . . "we interrupt this commercial to bring you a massive national boycott. "
Hey, pipe down you racist witch nazi bastard.
I was sent these pictures of a dog standing by his companion after being hit by a car in the street. As you gather with friends and family this year, take a somber look at these photos and appreciate the chance to have your best friend hug you back.
After the accident, the dog stood toe to toe with cars until traffic came to a near standstill. I haven’t been able to get the rest of the story to find out what happened next, but as you can see, the dog drew in a crowd as people were amazed at the display of canine loyalty.
Remember this Christmas, to show your love for those you hold dear, and let them know that you care. You never know what’s around the next corner. More pics here:

I recall we used to get a few of us kids and get a cab down to the ferry station in our neighbor town, Saitozaki (Pronounced Sat'-uh-za' key -with the "a's" as in "bad") and then take the ferry over to Fukuoka. Fukuoka is one of the largest cities in Japan (it now ranks at number 8.)
This is the ferry station -- it was at the end of a long, straight, road ... and the starting point of adventures many ... mostly of finding and flirting with the Japanese girls -- which was easy because they always wanted to practice their english. English was required for all four years of high school in Japan. Also -- everyone went ape if you had American cigarettes -- which I didna -- but some of my friends did.
Above -- this was the wide beach where everyone went swimming. It was also one of the few places in the world where Paper Nautilus wash up. If you went early in the morning, you could find them now and then -- and a medium size unbroken one would fetch about $2,000 yen (around $5) back then and go up from there.
Below: Dead center of the pic is the base and Saitozaki - slightly left of that is the green island of Shikanoshima - not really an island cuz you can get there by car on a long, narrow piece of land -- like a sandbar that was made in a storm long ago. To the lower-right of center is Fukuoka. We had to take a school bus about an hour thru Fukuoka to go to school.
The Men In Black star, 39, is determined to see the best in people, and is convinced the former German leader did not fully understand the extent of the pain and suffering his actions would cause during his time in power in the 1930s and '40s.
He says, "Even Hitler didn't wake up going, 'Let me do the most evil thing I can do today'.
"I think he woke up in the morning and using a twisted, backwards logic, he set out to do what he thought was 'good'. Stuff like that just needs reprogramming."
And here's a quote from the libs at WENN
"Hitler's totalitarian leadership as Fuhrer during 1934 until his eventual suicide in 1945 resulted in the persecution of an estimated six million Jews in the Holocaust, and his invasion of Poland in 1939 led to the start of the Second World War."
Correction: Actually, Hitler's totalitarian leadership as Fuhrer resulted in the murder of an estimated six million Jews in the Holocaust. But why get technical about accurate terminology, eh? Unbelievable.

Invariably one of these fucking geniuses is going to be on the ground -- with his face ground into asphalt -- and little pieces of asphalt in his mouth -- with the cop's knee in the back of his neck -- getting handcuffed -- and he's going to quothe "What did I do? ... What did I do?" -- over and over and over -- you know -- cuz he thinks the cops don't know everything.
This is how dumb these fucks are:
1 - They think they're going to get away if they put on a high-speed chase.
2 - They think they are going to learn how much the cop knows by asking "what did I do?" over and over -- you know -- hoping the cop will be as dumb as their parents.
Anyway -- I know how these guys feel see -- cuz many times in my life, I have been walking around -- minding my own business -- when -- by mistake -- BOOM, a cop is on my back, rubbing my face in the road and handcuffing me. OH wait -- nevermind -- that's never happinked.
It never fails to make me laugh out loud.

Does she say "Tax reform?"
Does she say "Campaigning to get rid of income tax?"
Does she try to be fair? -- Or does she try to mislead?
Ohhhh -- The LA Times -- I get it.
Gee -- I wonder how their financial picture looks.

Frantic for Revenue,
LA Times Plans to Place Ads On Front Page
By Dave Pierre July 16, 2007 - 07:25 ET
Amid a steep decline in revenue, the Los Angeles Times is planning to break with long-standing tradition by selling ads on its front page, Publisher David Hiller said Friday (7/13/07).
When it happens, the newspaper will be the largest metropolitan paper in the country to place ads there.
I absolutely love Patterico's response to the news:
The paper already runs ads for Democrats on the front page. They might as well get paid for it.
Bingo! Absolutely right on. (We've reported about the Times' front-page, hot-n-heavy love for the Democrats here, here, here, here, here, here, and here, for example.)
2nd Q: "Cash flow down a whopping 27%, making it one of the worst quarters ever experienced."
Hey, Janet - you dumbass, liberal snatch - "SOME SAY" you suck.
