Use "fewer" with objects that can be counted one-by-one.
Use "less" with qualities or quantities that cannot be individually counted.
Incorrect: There were less days below freezing last winter.
Correct: There were fewer days below freezing last winter.
(Days can be counted.)
Correct: I drank less water than she did.
(Water cannot be counted individually here.)
When referring to time or money, less is normally used even with numbers. Specific units of time or money use fewer only in cases where individual items are referred to.
Examples: I have less than an hour to do this work.
I have less time to this work.
I have less money than I need.
I have less than twenty dollars.
He worked fewer hours than I did.
The only occasion in which you might say, "I have fewer than twenty dollars," would be when you were talking about specific dollar bills or coins, such as "I have fewer than twenty silver dollars in my collection."
Interested he goes to learn more - Can you give me some more details about this?" he asks the guy behind the desk.
The Job Center man sorts through his files & replies, "Oh yes here it is: The job entails you getting the lady patients ready for the gynecologist. You have to help them out of their clothes, lie them down and carefully wash their genital regions. You then apply shaving foam and gently shave off all their pubic hair then rub in soothing oils so that they're ready for the gynecologist's examination.
There's an annual salary of $45,000, but you're going to have to go to Oxford, Mississippi. That's about 620 miles from here."
"Oh why, is that where the job is?"
"No sir - that's where the end of the line is!'

The officer's death was a blow to this city's psyche, where hopes are high that a new year would yield results in holding back a wave of crime that has been a dark backdrop to the rebuilding effort since Hurricane Katrina.
"When it hits home like this, it hits you tremendously," said Warren Riley, the police superintendent charged with energizing a demoralized police force in the storm's wake.
Nicola Cotton was shot around 10 a.m. in a parking lot near a busy intersection in the crime-plagued Central City neighborhood and a few streets away from the district police station.
The suspect was identified as Bernell Johnson, 44. He was arrested and booked with first-degree murder. Riley said Johnson had been arrested several times before on alleged sex offenses.
Really? Think the fucking judge will keep him in jail this time? I doubt it.
Riley said the officer approached the man in her police cruiser and began questioning him. When she tried to handcuff him, the suspect attacked her and a seven-minute fight ensued, he said.
The officer managed to use her radio during the struggle to call for backup, but the man grabbed her weapon and shot her repeatedly, Riley said.
Passers-by may not have seen the drawn-out struggle because the pair was on the ground and shielded by the officer's vehicle, Riley said. Police said security videotape captured the lethal assault. More here:
Huh? Passersby couldn't hear the fight -- couldn't see the fight? With a police cruiser sitting there -- unobtrusive -- not attracting any attention at all, I suppose.
I don't know about you but when a police cruiser is in my neighborhood, I wonder wtf is going on -- and I LOOK AT THE CAR AND AROUND THE CAR. Must have been a real secret and quiet fight -- until the gun started going off.
Riley said police have several witnesses to the shooting, which occurred near a convenience store and other businesses.
Too bad he didn't kill some jackasses ... erm, I mean "witnesses" who should have helped the police lady.
The officer's death was a blow to this city's psyche, where hopes are high that a new year would yield results in holding back a wave of crime that has been a dark backdrop to the rebuilding effort since Hurricane Katrina.
Yes -- it's all been since Hurricane Katrina -- everything was fine before that -- you know -- just like everywhere else hurricanes hit -- it's always a mass of murder and mayhem for years afterward.

I am really curious about something:
During the 2000 election Al Gore chose Joe Liberman as his potential Vice-President. In 2004 Joe Liberman tried to run for President and Al Gore chose NOT to endorse him and backed John Kerry.
During the 2004 election John Kerry chose John Edwards as his potential Vice-President. Yet John Kerry has now publicly supports Obama.
I am just curious as to what changed between the time these "men" chose their potential Vice-Presidents and the time that they decided to run for President? I thought when you chose a VP it was to be the best of the best...guess I was wrong.
This is why I typically separate Liberals into two groups...
A. The people that truly believe in the professed Liberal ideals and do so with a good heart. These people unfortunately have bought into what the Hippies believed, "EVERYONE is good, EVERYONE wants peace and the poor are only that way because of SOCIAL INJUSTICE"
But here is Group B which is composed of Politicians, the leaders of Environmental movements and the "Black Leadership" like Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan:
B. These people know that the Liberal Utopian ideal is unrealistic and not workable, but they also know that group "A" is easily lead to believe that "It could work", but unfortunately we have not given it a chance. This group uses group "A" to keep them in power by telling them that it is "Evil" Conservatives that are preventing their Nirvana from becoming a reality, thus ensuring they stay in power despite any and all shortcomings and regardless of how totally inept they are, (Ted Kennedy is a perfect example of this).
Until Group "A" realizes that Group "B" is BONING THEM IN THE ASS they will continue to be manipulated and used and we will continue to see Urban Decay that looks like BOMB DAMAGE!

He spent five years in prison after pleading guilty to manslaughter in 1990 for killing his sister's boyfriend, Dag Drollet, at the Brando family's hilltop estate.
Brando said he accidentally shot Drollet as they struggled for a gun during an argument over whether Drollet, 26, had beaten Brando's pregnant half-sister, Cheyenne.
At his son's trial, Marlon Brando pleaded for leniency, telling the court: "I think that perhaps I failed as a father." LMAO -- keep making excuses for criminals, libs.
Brando's ex-wife, Deborah Brando, sued him for domestic violence in 2005. She claimed that shortly after their 2004 marriage, Brando repeatedly beat her and threatened to kill her in the presence of her teenage daughter.
Brando also was the one-time lover of Bonnie Lee Bakley, who was shot to death in 2001. At one time, Bakley claimed Brando had fathered her child but tests showed it belonged to actor Robert Blake, whom she later married.
Blake was tried for her murder and acquitted but later ordered to pay $30 million in a wrongful death lawsuit. During that civil case, Blake's lawyer suggested Brando was the killer, although police never implicated him.
Brando, who had denied any involvement, invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination on the stand during the trial. More here:

Said Bill Clinton today in Columbia, SC: "Jesse Jackson won South Carolina in '84 and '88. Jackson ran a good campaign. And Obama ran a good campaign here."
This was in response to a question from ABC News' David Wright about it taking "two Clintons to beat" Obama. Jackson had not been mentioned.
Boy, I can't understand why anyone would think the Clintons are running a race-baiting campaign to paint Obama as "the black candidate."
Yes -- he brought up facts and history -- the two main enemies of liberals. Then he suggested your "chosen one" might not win ... you know ... as if facts and history are any indicators.
What to do, what to do? Oh yes -- use condescension and sarcasm -- call him a witch -- erm -- I mean "race-baiter."
You know -- nothing goes together better than arrogance and ignorance.

A generous sprinkling of salt is as much a part of the traditional fish-and-chips experience as a splash of vinegar. But in these health-conscious times, it was never going to be long before the nation's chippies came under pressure to change.
To cut the amount added, Rochdale council has come up with a novel, and extremely simple, solution - cut the number of holes in the lids of salt shakers.
Takeaways are being issued with catering-sized salt pots with just five holes in the lid, rather than the usual 17 or 18, cutting the amount of salt on the average portion of chips by more than half.
But questions are being asked as to whether they would really make a difference.
Mark Petrou, whose takeaway in Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, Petrou Brothers, is reigning fish and chip shop of the year, said: "People know how much salt they like - surely they will just shake it for longer?"
1 - HEY -- LIBS -- GET YOUR FUCKING ASSES OUT OF MY SALT BUSINESS, JACKASSES.
2 - STOP MAKING STUPID-ASSED RULES THAT BUSINESSES HAVE TO FOLLOW AND THEN CHARGE ME MONEY FOR HAVING TO FOLLOW THEM.
3 - HOW MUCH IS IT GOING TO COST ME TO HAVE MY POLICEMEN CHECKING ON HOW MANY HOLES ARE IN THE SALT SHAKERS?
4 - ARE YOU THE SAME FUCKING MORONS WHO DECIDED TO SAVE WATER BY REDUCING THE FLUSH IN TOILETS .... THEREBY MAKING EVERYONE FLUSH TWICE?
5 - COMMIT SUICIDE, YOU USELESS FESTERING BOILS ON SOCIETY.

Sodomy - Definition: Any sexual act that is not penile-vaginal penetration. Usually refers to oral or anal intercourse, but various legal definitions may include other . More here:
Well -- I used to think that when the media said "sodomy," that it meant a good, old-fashioned, fudgetunnel raunching -- now I know better. It can also mean, forcing a guy to get an erection and then putting it in your mouth. I think a girl did this to me before. * Sob* -- I've been sodomized - Gaaaaa.

Apparently, creating a frightening environment for her own children isn’t enough for Britney Spears. Now she’s spooking random children in Beverly Hills, reports Usmagazine.com. According to the Web site, a “scantily clad” Britney popped up at neighborhood elementary school, “freaking out” students while telling the grown-ups that she was there to pick up someone else’s kids.
“She was just rambling and confused,” one bystander said of Britney, who appeared just before 3 p.m. dismissal. “She said, ‘I’m here to pick up my kids.’ But then she changed her story and said, ‘They aren’t my kids; I have a new attorney, and I came to pick them up for her.’”
Echoing the thoughts of a nation, the witness added, “All I could think was, ‘Who in their right mind would let her pick up their kids?’” More here:

According to nuptiality records, in the last decades of the 19th century the proportion of women 65 and older who had never married was slightly above 6 percent. But by 1920, just in time for my father to go to high school, this number had risen to 7.08 percent. Dad very nearly graduated. In 1930, the spinster percentage was 8.11 percent. Thus my Uncle Mikey-Mike could count to five without removing his mittens. By 1940, the rate was 9.31 percent, and all of my older cousins acquired job skills enough to keep them from going on welfare. (They’ve been in jail occasionally, yes, but not on welfare.) And I more or less attended college, owing to the fact that by the time I started kindergarten, the spinster rate was still almost 9 percent. Competition at my school was fierce. Only the toughest of the tough could get the prize job of being the old lady who scared the bejesus out of me.
It’s all been downhill since then, alas, with spinsterhood plummeting to 5.49 percent by 1990 (when there weren’t really any spinsters anymore anyway—just strong women without concern for conformist social pressures, leading their own lives and owning too many cats). (For my friend Bobbie.)
During the golden age of American public schools, teachers also had the advantage of a level of educational funding very different from today’s. Table Bc925 shows that, in constant 1982–1984 dollars, annual per-pupil spending in public schools was $4,090 in 1996 (the last year for which figures are given). By contrast, in 1921, when my father was a high-school freshman, annual per-pupil spending (in the same constant dollars) was $399. Of course my father got a better education: With $399, you can’t afford to let the kids do anything but sit and study. Dad was forbidden to squirm, for fear he’d wear out a precious desk seat.

Pastor Steve Smith of the Evangelical Free Church in Albert City is among those concerned about the Muslim prayer. Rev. Smith admits that he doesn’t know about all the levels of Muslim but knows that the Jihadists believe those in the U.S. are the great Satan.
Oh -- shouldn't I have said that? Did I say something wrong? What? What's the matter? What did I do? You don't like jihadi fuckwits? Tough shit, infidels -- jam it up your ass.
Ha Ha -- those idiots. They allow a Muslim to do the prayer and then wonder what went wrong. What ... What ?? He said What? Who could have predicted that. Nobody could have seen THAT coming. Why ... if we hadn't allowed him to do the prayer, it would have been politically incorrect ... and we have to keep things politically correct ... even while they're sawing our fucking melons off.
Let's just pretend we don't know what it means. Nobody call him on it ... whatever you do ... Just look up in the air and whistle ... but keep one eye on that imam guy. I sure hope our constituents are as brainwashed as we ... so they don't call us on it. Everybody just pretend nothing happened.

WASHINGTON, DC–Seeking to reverse a "decades-long trend toward shamefully inadequate underfucking in our nation's adult-entertainment industry," a coalition of U.S. porn stars gathered in the nation's capital Monday to voice their demand to be fucked harder.
The D.C. summit arrives on the heels of years of complaints from disgruntled female sex-industry workers, many of whom had repeatedly argued that, as cock-crazed nymphomaniacs who can never get enough, they weren't receiving the deep-dicking they needed.
"Give it to me! Oh, God, give it to me harder," said PSFBFH spokeswoman Christy Canyon, bent over the press-conference podium. "I fucking need it so bad."
Canyon's sentiments echoed those of many PSFBFH members, who are such nasty sluts that moderately hard fucking is not enough to satisfy their constant craving for hot fuck action. More here:
Yes -- I've heard tell of this but I didn't know it was TRUE!!
"This team has already tasted victory against the Patriots," head coach Tom Coughlin said Monday. "By which I mean we were so close to victory that we could taste it. True, we did not actually experience that victory, but we came as close to beating them as anyone else has this season. That's the kind of team we believe we are, and I think the Super Bowl will prove that."
"This will be one to tell my kids about, that's for sure," Michael Strahan said. "If we can pull it off and almost beat these guys, they'll be showing those highlights until the end of time. When I die and come before those Pearly Gates, St. Peter himself will look down at me and say 'So, Michael, what was it like to be an eyelash away from winning that Super Bowl against those Patriots?' And Heaven itself will hold its breath while I tell them how we almost did it." More here:

Tom Brokaw says his most conservative friend has told him he might vote for Hillary Clinton. I for one believe the former NBC News anchor. Hillary supporters might indeed constitute the rightmost fringe of his friend set.
The revelation occurred on today's Morning Joe.
Hey -- BROKAW -- Mr OBJECTIVE JOURRRRRNALIST -- shove it up your ass sideways, lying, cheating prick. You're about as objective as Chairman Mao.
The fair-to-good immigration candidates have been growing progressively better in their promises, although none yet qualify as excellent on the issues (now that Fred Thompson, Duncan Hunter and Tom Tancredo have withdrawn).
The study concluded that the statements "were part of an orchestrated campaign that effectively galvanized public opinion and, in the process, led the nation to war under decidedly false pretenses."
The study was posted Tuesday on the Web site of the Center for Public Integrity, which worked with the Fund for Independence in Journalism. More "Bush Lied" stuff here:
Oh my God, the genius libs have found us out -- we went to war for nothing and we knew it at the time. We just did it for fun -- you know -- to get a bunch of people killed -- (evil laugh.) Nevermind those UN resolutions, they only count when the libs agree with them -- besides, that was all a cover up -- a ruse -- yes -- we lied -- WE LIED -- just so we could go willy-nilly, with no reason whatsoever, into a huge expensive war. Great example of standard liberal logic.
Yes -- I love it when "studies find" and when "studies conclude" -- because, as soon as I hear those words, I know I'm being fed a line of propaganda.
By the way -- I love the names "Center for Public Integrity" and so forth. "Public Integrity" my red Klown ass. Jam it, you fucking socialist assholes. I'm still laughing at "studies" being conducted by objective jourrrrrnalists.
Hey -- jourrrrrrnalists -- some "non-profit" Klowns conducted a "study" -- it "found/concluded" that jourrrrrnalists would perform oral sex on horses if they thought they could make capitalism, conservatives, and/or America look bad.
About 4 hours after I wrote this post, I ran across this at Newsbusters:
I tell ya -- the Klown is clairvoyant. Isn't it so nice to know the media is upfront with you on everything -- you know -- how they present both sides of an issue in an honest and forthright manner -- and they NEVER try to hide any pertinent facts from you.
Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak announced that he had ordered his troops to allow Palestinians to cross into Egypt from the Gaza Strip because they were starving.
On Wednesday, Palestinian gunmen blew holes in the wall, and tens of thousands of Gazans trapped in the Strip by a tight blockade poured into Egypt to buy food, fuel and other supplies that have become scarce.
Speaking at the Cairo International Book fair, Mubarak told reporters that when Palestinians began breaking through the Gaza-Egypt border at Rafah in force, he told his men to let them in to buy food before escorting them out.
"But today a great number of them came back because the Palestinians in Gaza are starving due to the Israeli siege. Egyptians troops accompanied them to buy food and then allowed them to return to the Gaza Strip," he added. How do troops "accompany" HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of peeps to the grocery store?
Mubarak also criticized Hamas for continuing to fire missiles into Israel, saying that it was not helping the situation. He said that he had been in contact with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and helped convince him to resume fuel shipments into Gaza.
"Although fuel was sent and electricity was back, some on the Palestinian side then fired seven missiles," he said. "This does not help to bring quiet." More here:
Sure -- these people deserve their own state. These jackasses are all on international welfare. Something tells me if they had to have jobs, they'd have less time for firing rockets.
The territory had been cut off from the world since June, when Hamas seized power in Gaza by force, and Gazans are facing critical shortages of electricity, fuel and other supplies.

The 16-year-old told police that at about 9 p.m., a man in a Mercedes offered him a ride and took him to Erotic City, an adult-entertainment complex that is in between the city limits of Kansas City and Independence.
The boy said he was sodomized in a viewing booth. Yes -- I can see how being raunched in the fudgetunnel would make you a silent little lamb -- nothing to fight or cry out about. Hell -- you prolly never felt your pants come down, right? Just a little up and down motion and, before you knew it, cum was dripping out your bunghole -- right? That pretty much how it happened? You can tell us -- we've ALL been there -- we understand -- now make a clean breast of it.
The teen said he had been hitching when he was picked up, so he doesn't know who the man was. The man was about 35 years old.
Earlier this week, Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders vowed to crack down on Erotic City. LOL @ "Crack" down. Yessir -- we're going to erect a stiff opposition to the smut front. WE CAN'T LICK IT BY BEING SOFT (George Carlin) More here:

A brokered convention refers to a situation in United States politics where there are not enough delegates obtained during the presidential primary and caucus process for a single candidate to obtain a majority for the presidential nominating convention. Since no candidates receive enough votes on the first ballot to win the nomination, the convention is brokered through political horse-trading and multiple ballots.
Before the era of presidential primaries, conventions were routinely brokered. Adlai Stevenson in 1952 for the Democratic Party and Thomas Dewey in 1948 for the Republican Party were the last two candidates selected through a brokered convention. The last seriously contested convention was the 1976 Republican convention, where Gerald Ford beat Ronald Reagan on the first ballot without obtaining a majority of delegates through the primary and caucus process.
Since then, there have been many years where brokered conventions were projected, but did not come to pass. In 1988, a brokered convention was predicted for the Democrats since multiple candidates won the Super Tuesday primaries that year. More here:
The motion argues that the Stolen Valor Act of 2005, under which water board member Xavier Alvarez was charged, is incompatible with the First Amendment because it restricts free speech by criminalizing false claims of military honors.

Dutch politician Geert Wilders, whose hair puts John Edwards’ hair to shame, is about to broadcast a short film that many fear will provoke violence from followers of the Religion of Peace™.
The Dutch government is bracing itself for violent protests following the scheduled broadcast this week of a provocative anti-Muslim film by a radical right-wing politician who has threatened to broadcast images of the Koran being torn up and otherwise desecrated.
Geert Wilders, one of nine members of the extremist VVD (Freedom) party in the 150-seat Dutch lower house, has promised that his film will be broadcast - on television or on the internet - whatever the pressure may be. It will, he claims, reveal the Koran as ‘source of inspiration for intolerance, murder and terror’.
In Amsterdam, Rotterdam and other towns with large Muslim populations, imams say they have needed to ‘calm down’ growing anger in their communities. More here:
Ha Ha -- WTF is wrong with this Dutch guy -- has he grown tired of having his melon firmly attached to his shoulders?
Yes -- the "imams" are having to "calm down" the practitioners of the religion of peace."
Did you ever notice that twitching, pea-brained jackasses are ALWAYS on the lookout for a reason to get "offended" so they can have a reason to be violent? Think about it. Everyone knows the type.
This mindset can apply to an individual or a group -- either way, it never seems to apply to the likes of doctors or rocket scientists or surveyors -- it only seems to apply to idiots. Funny, huh?
Hey -- I wonder what the world would say if Christians starting beheading jackasses who insulted Jesus Christ? Or suicide bombing mosques? Not really -- I don't wonder.
An 81-year old man in the small Chilean village of Angol shocked his grieving relatives by waking up in his coffin at his own wake.
When Feliberto Carrasco's family members discovered his body limp and cold, they were convinced that the octogenarian's hour had come, so they immediately called a funeral home, not a doctor.
Carrasco was dressed in his finest suit for the wake, and his relatives gathered to bid him a final farewell.
"I couldn't believe it. I thought I must be mistaken, and I shut my eyes," Carrasco's nephew Pedro said. When I opened them again, my uncle was looking at me. I started to cry and ran to get something to open up the coffin to get him out."
The man who "rose from the dead" said he was not in any pain, and only asked for a glass of water.
Local radio also surprised listeners by announcing a correction to Carrasco's death announcement, saying the news had been premature.
Man -- if this guy had slept another 2-3 hours, he would have been toast -- capisce?
In connection with the vandalism, Ivanov was charged with 23 counts of aggravated harassment and 23 counts of criminal mischief, the New York City Police Department said. Early Sunday, officers discovered the weapons cache that included eight pipe bombs, three firearms and a crossbow, police said. They said they were led to the discovery after Ivanov reported a gunshot wound to his finger.
Ivanov, the resident of the apartment, was arrested on charges of criminal possession of a weapon, unlawful wearing of a body vest and reporting a false incident, police said.
Ivanov initially claimed that someone had shot him in the finger, but investigators later determined that the gunshot wound was self-inflicted, police said.
Neighbors said Ivanov had lived in the apartment for several years.
"He seems like a really nice guy, a really gentle person," said James Robinson, 45, a resident of the same building as Ivanov, in Monday editions of the New York Times.
Yes -- very nice guy -- kept to himself -- very gentle person. I wonder if he'll even go to jail. I think the chances are low he'll spend much time in jail -- but, if he DOES go to jail, I'll bet he comes out a reformed person, don't you? I sure am glad our justice system knows how to deal with people like this.
Police stumbled upon a bomb-making factory Sunday in the home of a Columbia professor who specializes in the spread of infectious disease - and are investigating whether he and his roommate have terror ties. (Hmmm anthrax boy?)
Cops evacuated the Brooklyn Heights neighborhood around the Remsen St. home of Michael Clatts, a medical anthropologist, after finding seven pipe bombs fitted with fuses in his flat, police sources said.
GAZA City, Gaza Strip - Israel resumed fuel supplies to the Gaza Strip’s main power plant Tuesday, offering limited respite from a blockade that plunged much of the Hamas-ruled territory into darkness and touched off international protests.
The shipment included at least three days’ worth of European Union-funded fuel for the generating plant, which shut down on Sunday after Israel sealed border crossings in what it termed a response to Palestinian cross-border rocket salvoes. Free fuel for Gaza terrorists -- YAY!!!!
Israel said it would also allow in 132,000 gallons of diesel for generators, a supply of cooking gas and 50 trucks of food and medicine, though restrictions on petrol for cars remained.
“Our approach now is to assess what is acutely lacking, and permit imports on that basis,” Israeli Defense Ministry spokesman Shlomo Dror said.
The European Union and international agencies denounced the Israeli closure as illegal “collective punishment” against Gaza’s 1.5 million residents, many of whom depend on foreign aid. Gazans stockpiled food and medical officials. "Many?" -- Try "The great majority," Mr. OBJECTIVE JOURRRRRNALIST. Hey -- I'll bet the food and medical officials are free too. Get in the box you medical official, you -- and pipe down.
The decision to allow in emergency supplies, Israeli officials said, followed a decline in the number of salvoes. Not a "stopping" -- just a "decline."
“We have learned that Hamas controls the rocket fire. It has to be clear to the residents of the strip that it is Hamas' conduct that harms them, not Israel’s,” Dror said. Yes -- and correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't the citizens of Gaza vote Hamas into their government? And the world is waiting for the Klown to feel sorry for the residents of Gaza?
Hamas refuses to give up its fight against Israel and opposes peace moves by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, whose administration condemned the Israeli closure as harmful to diplomacy.
Palestinians launched at least one rocket into Israel from Gaza on Tuesday, causing no damage, the military said. There was no immediate claim of responsibility. More here:
Benjamin Jorgensen, 38, and his accomplice Donna Hayes, 36, were sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty to robbing the restaurant in the southern Australian city of Melbourne on April 1 last year.
During the April Fools Day holdup, Jorgensen grabbed what he believed was a bag with the Cuckoo's daily take of about U.S. $26,000 in cash, but later found it was full of bread rolls, the Victorian County Court heard.
He also fired his gun accidentally during the heist, shooting Hayes in the buttocks.
Judge Roland Williams told the robbers they were a "pair of fools," before sentencing Hayes to eight years in prison and Jorgensen to seven.
Earlier this week, defense lawyer Greg Thomas said Jorgensen had been under the influence of drugs at the time, had made a full admission to police and was remorseful, News Ltd. newspapers reported.

The Rev. Peter Johnson, 62, director of the Texas operations for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, told The Dallas Morning News the holiday should be on April 4, the anniversary of the date King was assassinated.
"We have ignored the essence of his life and the horror of his death," said Johnson. "We've allowed white America to escape the guilt of his assassination and we've allowed black America to drift back into a coma."
Hell -- these "voices" tell people to "kill him and take a bite out of his brain" -- or "strangle him/her and cut them up in small pieces and put them in the fridge."
How come the voices never say "go over to Klown's house when he's not home and paint the barn -- or wax his car etc" -- oh HELLLL no -- I mean, WTF @ these voices anyway? Are they ALL evil?
Another thing -- do the "voices" tell you to simultaneously take on the look of a deranged, come-ass-pletely out-of-your-gourd psycho-killer whilst psycho-killing? I guess they must. Sheesh -- it's a huge problem.
The Klown loves how the media refers to them as "Palestinians."
Hospitals risk running out of drugs, fuel; main power plant shut Sunday
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip - Gaza hospitals will run out of drugs and fuel for generators within a few days unless Israel eases the border blockade it imposed to curb Palestinian rocket attacks, international organizations said Monday.
Residents of the Hamas-controlled territory awoke to nearly traffic-free streets and shuttered shops, with petrol in short supply due to Israeli restrictions and Gaza’s main power plant shut down since late on Sunday.
European Union-funded fuel for the power plant is being held in storage at the Nahal Oz crossing, awaiting Israel’s decision on resuming supplies. Once Israel authorizes the transfer of the fuel, it will take more than 12 hours for the plant to begin operating, the officials said.
“If the Qassam (rocket) fire on Israel does not stop, Israel will continue with its pressure on Gaza,” Israeli Vice Premier Haim Ramon told Army Radio. “It is illogical for a country that is attacked by rockets to supply the attacker with power, fuel and water,” he said. Uh -- yeah -- I thought I was the only one who realized this -- you know -- since you allow them to launch rockets into your country every fucking day.
Despite its tough public line, Israel has not cut off its direct supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip. Egypt also provides power, to the southern part of the territory.
Of course -- Israel needs to stop with the illegal settling of the west bank etc -- but illegal settlements don't blow limbs from people's bodies.

In order to get to his friend's residence, and keep in mind that Chicago is a myriad of diagonal and one-way streets, the front entrance (right way) to the one-way street was blocked. Mike, being a Marine, overcame and adapted by driving around the block to the other end of the street and backing up all the way to his friend's place.
While saying goodbye, at about 11am, he noticed a man leaning up against his car. Mike left his friend's apartment and caught the man keying his car on multiple sides.
Man -- what a jackass this lawyer is being. (Shocker) Read the rest here -- apparently there is going to be followup on this story.
Isn't it funny -- a lawyer would ruin a politician's career for something like this -- but for a lawyer -- it's not a problem. The only time they "disbar" anyone is when the media is focusing on them daily for months -- and then only when they've almost murdered someone.
It was awesome. There were probably 15 folks who showed up in support of Sgt. McNulty. Big guys with Marine Corp. jackets on! The creepy attorney was late again! His lawyer got up and told the judge Attorney Grodner was late because he wanted to let the “press” clear out! The judge was really mad then and ordered a warrant immediately. Then the lawyer says Grodner is coming and will show up within 30 minutes. The judge says he will be arrested when he gets here. Sure enough, Grodner walks in and two cops take him out and cuff him.
Long story short, he has to pay $600 to a Semper Fi Fund (Marine [Corps] fund for the wounded) and he has to report for Social Services probation once per month for a year. Judge told him if he screws up and misses any he will be arrested and will serve 364 days in jail! He told Grodner that the reason the courtroom was so full was because Sgt. McNulty belongs to The Band of Brothers and this is what he can expect when he mistreats a Marine (not his exact words but the same meaning)…
He really admonished him and the part I really liked was when the judge made Grodner admit he keyed Sgt. McNulty’s car. He also explained to him about military plates and how people pay extra because the monies go into a fund for scholarships. I cried but they were tears of joy!!!!!!!!!!!
Sgt. McNulty’s damages were $2400 but his car is fixed and just like The Band of Brothers, he asks that this creep give $600 to a fund for his Brothers. God Bless The Band of Brothers. This is a story the whole world should read about.
Ahhhh -- heartwarming, eh? I'll bet you thought the Klown forgot all about this. Yes -- the Klown is known for being an amnesiac. I went ahead and posted this -- I didn't want to wait until the mainstream lib media covered it -- LOLOLOLOL.
What I really wonder though, is how can this guy keep on being an officer of the court? A Lawyer? I wonder if a cop could keep his job after being caught at this? Well -- no matter -- what were we going to do -- lose our respect for LAWYERS? Oh .. no wonder they call you the Klown -- you're so funny.
Sometimes Klowns aren't "funny" -- sometimes they try to figure out how to dispense justice -- then they go back to being funny -- see? HAHA!!!
A delegation of nine state legislators from Sonora was in Tucson on Tuesday to say Arizona’s new employer sanctions law will have a devastating effect on the Mexican state.
At a news conference, the legislators said Sonora - Arizona’s southern neighbor, made up of mostly small towns - cannot handle the demand for housing, jobs and schools it will face as illegal Mexican workers here return to their hometowns without jobs or money.
Now they know what it’s been like north of the border.
“How can they pass a law like this?” asked Mexican Rep. Leticia Amparano Gamez, who represents Nogales.
“There is not one person living in Sonora who does not have a friend or relative working in Arizona,” she said in Spanish.
HA - HA -- NO SHIT, LADY -- that's what we've been trying to tell you -- every Mexican with a bandanna is working illegally in the United States. The Klown suggests you get rid of the corruption in your government and go with a more capitalist system of economics if you want to haul your country's bean-eating ass out of third-world status - CAPISCE? (Italian word)
Guns Used in Self-Defense?

An armed citizen surprised four men who robbed him at gunpoint last week.
After being ordered to his knees, Russel Olofson warned the men that "they should think about it," according to an Orlando police report released this week.
A private investigator with military training, Olofson, 24, told police the robbers snatched his cell phone and a wallet containing his concealed-weapon permit shortly before 10 p.m. Friday outside Ridge Club Apartments.
After the robbers took his items, Olofson stood up, drew his Springfield XD sub-compact 9 mm handgun "and fired two rounds toward male #1 with the silver handgun, possibly striking him," the report states. "Males #2, #3, and #4 then ran southeast . . . and male #1 ran northeast . . ."
A search by police quickly turned up a pistol likely used in the holdup, the report said.
The .45-caliber Ruger pistol and clothing believed to have been worn by male 1 were found in the backyard of a home on Alrix Drive, reports state. The serial numbers on the pistol had been scratched off, a common sign the weapon may have been stolen.
Cam felt a story like this had all of the inherent drama and suspense that the networks can find in a human-interest story. But we suspected that TV assignment editors like "kids with a bat" stories better than a trained man with a gun.
The Klown bows his head and prays:
Heavenly father ... please watch over this disgusting criminal and make sure he gets what he so richly deserves ... you know .. with the gurgling his own blood and so forth ... and please make sure the media get what they deserve also ... for hurting America by deliberately being biased, misleading ,and manipulative ... Amen.
Vehicle suspected of entering illegally from Mexico
YUMA, Ariz. - A Border Patrol agent trying to stop a vehicle that had illegally entered the U.S. was struck and killed Saturday in southeastern California, agency officials said.
The agent was killed about 20 miles west of Yuma in the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area, a spot along the border that is popular with off-road vehicle enthusiasts and frequently used by smugglers.
The agent attempted to impede the vehicle's progress before he was hit, but the Border Patrol did not immediately have more information, said agent Eric Anderson, a spokesman for the agency's Yuma sector. More here:
Hey -- I wonder if they'll give immunity to the drug smuggler so he can testify that the agent damaged his fucking hummer -- so he can sue the widow of the border agent to fix the truck. You can prolly see the teeth marks on the fender.
Let me tell you people something -- this guy died trying to stop illegals from crossing into the US from Mexico. He's a far better man than I.
After his compatriots, Ramos and Compean, were jailed for shooting in the ass an illegal alien who was transporting 743 pounds of drugs. THEN, the authorities gave immunity to the drug dealer to testify against the agents -- and was caught YET AGAIN smuggling drugs into the US. Yes -- using his "immunity" to smuggle drugs -- for -- the umpteenth time -- and yet -- the illegal alien drug dealer testifies -- and our agents are in jail. GREAT JOB, LIBS. PACK SAND.
Were I the agent above -- I would not have given two flaming shits whether those people crossed illegally or not. You think I'm risking my life for a bunch of ingrates? Think again, Batman. No way a bunch of braying jackasses are going to put ME in jail. Let them cross -- I'll make it look good - but FUCK YOU if you think I'm actually going put myself at risk or do something that requires ACTION.
I can only hope that the people who prosecuted and imprisoned our border guards get what they so richly deserve. One thing I DON'T want though is for an illegal "immigrant" to make it across and rape/murder their wife or daughter and then burn their house to the ground.

Yep -- Presidink Bush -- he's a real "Chimp" (isn't that what they call him?) -- according to the elite genius Democraps.
Here's the cockpit -- it's only obvious any chimp could manage it -- at supersonic speed -- under fire -- right genius Democraps?The really cool part is, I can be sitting in a bar, having a beer, and hear some mental fucking retard talk about how dumb Presidink Bush is -- and yet -- I don't get up and bash their fucking skull to a pulp with a baseball bat ... and then piss on the pulp -- now THAT, is cool -- you know -- because I resisted the urge -- but I usually still have to pee anyway.
