Crafty Lil Buggers!

Illegal aliens, illegal drugs, terrorists... COME ON DOWN!!!You think with all of the great technology the United States has, you'd assume we would've found this before or immediately following completion. Well, I'm wrong. It was recently found connecting Tijuana to San Diego, one of the 21 found in recent months. Hmmmm, maybe we should beef it up a little bit, right W?

From the Yahoo! article:

Inside a five-foot-wide tunnel, with just enough room for an adult to stand, authorities say they discovered two tons of marijuana this week, and what they believe was a passageway for drug trade.

The 2,400-foot long tunnel is lengthier than most of the 21 cross-border tunnels that have been discovered since authorities began keeping track after the Sept. 11 attacks, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said.

It's time to tighten the borders, create a fence, and stop this BS. A lot can be fixed by growing some cajones and tightening up National Security. Alright George, work your magic. We need a fence, We need a fence!

Blogger Quote of the Day

In a post and comments over at Payne Hollow (a worthy visit), a blogger named Wembley made a great remark after PH's argument over us in Iraq:

PH's remarks:

And yet, I suppose it would be unpatriotic of me and show a lack of support for our troops if I suggested that we really can't afford to wage war as solution for all the "bad guys" out there? Forget the whole morality question: It just isn't feasible.

We can't solve rogue regime problems by warring. If it's stretching us thin to deal with a wiped out nation like Iraq, what would it cost to deal with a North Korea? China? And so, if that is the case, wouldn't it be wise if we looked at other solutions?

Wembley's retort:

Perhaps you should invest in a magnetic ribbon. Magnetic ribbons are the duct tape of american society.

That is to say, they look tacky and fix almost nothing.


Dirty Harry Dumber than Ever

Senator "Dirty" Harry Reid is now requesting Bush to admit to corruption during his presidency. Apparently, Reid is accusing Bush of Abramoff's corruption. Newsmax reports:

"In his 2000 campaign, George Bush promised to bring 'dignity' to the White House, but we've since found that he brought Jack Abramoff instead," said Reid, D-Nev.

This next question I ask is to the liberals who read this: Is he serious? Do you really agree with Dirty Harry in equating Abramoff, a lobbyist, to that of Bush? Bush brought Abramoff with his presidency?

I don't know if he saw the list of people involved with Abramoff but I linked it again and lo-and-behold, Reid is on it with a reported $68,000+ in accepted money. Ummm... I don't get it? That is the worst doublespeak I've seen. Right from Reid's mouth about Bush:

"has been giving us doublespeak for years."

Doesn't he know the age old: People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. More importantly, don't equate Abramoff to that of our president. Bush didn't invite him. Bush didn't know. Just because Abramoff is "republican" doesn't mean it's Bush's fault. Enough with this "Blame Bush" bullshit. It's getting old and it's not going to help in 2006, you'll see.

All I want from Alito

After the inevitable partisan vote and Alito gets the seat, I ask only one thing from him: No more judicial activism. When did we forget that the Judicial branch is equivalent to both the Legislative and Executive branch and nothing else? The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) is not some magnificent 7 individuals. They should not be held on any higher standards. If anything, I expect Alito to revert back to what the founders wanted, less government, less law, and less activism.

We’ve gotten carried away and it must stop. The MSM has managed to manipulate and twist what the Judicial system does. When the SCOTUS is used, it should be in rare instances and they should typically have to refer to previous cases. Also, references should be in the strictest adherence to the Constitution and nothing more. Hopefully Alito will be the one to alleviate us from judicial activism. Much less being blinded by activist groups and personal preference (ahem...Ginsburg).

Case Closed

cSorry for the tangent on this 'ad blogwar' but I find this extremely fun. My next pick should win this whole contest. I finally found it while at work and I started to cry after laughing so hard. The people around me think I'm nuts but this is the funniest commercial ever. If you haven't watched any of my picks, please watch this one. You can watch all of their commercials at Bud Light's website (there are more than 70 of these "Real men of Genius").

BTW, I am that guy.

More Monkey Business

I think Tex is in the lead with his latest pick and but I thought let's do one more monkey commercial. One of Bud Light's 'oldies but goodies,' this talking monkey means business.

Lesbian Rapist gets Slap on the Wrist

What is this world coming too? I recently wrote an article on this subject but it keeps getting worse! Now a teacher in Lecanto, FL is not receiving any jail time after having same-sex sexual relations with a 15-year old girl. The teacher was facing charges of up to 15 years but escaped on a plea deal of no jail time. Ummm, did I miss a day in school? (no pun intended) I thought rape was a heinous crime?

Not to mention that this comes shortly after two homosexual male teachers both got off with no jail time. I don’t understand what the problem here is. We have a bunch of rapist/teachers who are getting away with criminal acts. Not only are they having sex with minors, they are violating the ethics codes between them and the parents.

That’s not even the real problem. The real problem is the court system that is letting these pervert, pedophiles go without punishment. I swear that the ACLU is getting their way and we aren’t stopping them. We need to start impeaching these idiot judges that don’t dish out proper sentences. And if I hear one more excuse about prison overpopulation, I’ll deliver a loaded gun to the judge and tell him to start picking…

I'm not a Republican, I'm a Reaganite!

Here's my results from a political test that I have taken on a site called OkCupid!. I came across it while perusing a new-found blogger named Adrianne. I'm very happy with my results and I think they did an excellent job of my "placement". Each of the pictures dictate what type of person you are similar to. Top left is obviously Republican while bottom right is Democrat. You can see the other classifications by visiting the site.

Off Topic: Ernie the Klepto

To continue with my new tradition of pointing out my favorite advertisements, I've come up with my favorite ad for the year thus far. This ad was created for Starburst Candy. It's another must see and you can watch it here (Click on the tape labeled "Ernie"). It's an outstanding commercial that really attracts the viewer.

Note: The number one ad rating site,, has acclaimed this as their pick of the week, one week after I chose it. Huh, maybe they should consider my resume.

I apologize for all who have dial-up and can't witness this hilarious 30-sec ad (Gayle).

Off Topic: Texas Hold 'Em Weekend

Some of you know that I play Texas Hold 'Em league poker to pass the time at the tavern. Well I managed to enter into a monthly qualifying tournament this past weekend. The event was held at a bar with 153 entrants vying for a trip for two to Las Vegas. I signed up and played for the next six hours, at some points, struggling to stay alive in the sea of players. Throughout the tournament my chip stack fluctuated with every hour, not really stablizing until I hit an all-time low. We were down to the final 16 players with me being the short-stack (~15,000) and the chip leader having virtually 200,000 in chips. I sat out a few hands as I learned my next table and finally made my move.

I continued to go "All-In" stealing the blinds and other minimal bets. Following this, I gained a substantial amount of chips and took out nearly half of the remaining opponents. I was getting outstanding cards and playing them meticulously. I gained an advantage quickly with what seemed to be my experience over the other players. Many chose to only play "Premium Hands" and fold more often than not. To dissuade these players, I played overly aggressive and continuously jeopardized my chips with bluffs. It paid off when I personally eliminated a majority of the two final tables.

It came down to "heads-up" with me and a player coined "No Paint" Pete. ("No Paint" implies has lack of luck with his two hole cards.) Anyways, I dominated the heads-up playing only three hands (I won all) and taking him out in only minutes. I was lucky insofar that my opponent wasn't as experienced as I and he hesitated prior to every bet. I noticed his reluctance, poor betting habits, and overall fear to be heads-up. I ended up capitalizing quickly and I won the competition.

I'm now planning a trip for two to Las Vegas to see if my luck continues. I'm excited to return to the City of Sin, especially knowing that the whole trip is being paid for by six hours of cards and some luck.

I'll have updates following my trip in March.

For those who appreciate...

marketing and commercials, I implore you to watch this banned commercial. I love it! Don't worry, it's clean but a little violent(?). XBox decided not to air it but like I said, if you like humorous commercials or the art of advertising, check this out.

Belafonte the Boob - Speaks Again!

If Belafonte likes Venezuela so much, what is stopping him from moving there? I don't remember anyone begging him to stay. Pictured here with fellow Boob-Communist Chavez, Belafonte is calling Bush the 'worst terrorist'.

I really don't get it. I'm certain that "millions of Americans" do not support Chavez or Castro. Why does Belafonte, a traitor, think that he can speak for us. If he continues to speak wrong of our President, I think he should be exiled. His arguments are baseless, his fellow minions are crooks, and nobody's listening. This guy should go back to writing music, at least he had a fan or two when he wrote that crap. Actually, I prefer the following picture because it really brings out the boob in him.

To be honest, as I write this, I want to reach for a pencil and shove it in my ear. Only I should be able to inflict this much pain on myself. I never am this coarse but when I hear idiots like him talk, I really think that the aneurism in my brain is swelling. I really feel that idiots like Belafonte the boob and Sen. "Glug-Glug" Kennedy will be the death of me.

Penn & Teller v. PETA

Gotta see this video. I stumbled across it on a great blog, Moonbattery. I've never seen Penn & Teller like this before but I now appreciate them in a much greater light.

Tire Slashing Doesn't Pay

I remember this story quite well and forgot it as quickly as the MSM buried it. During the last presidential election, the tires of Republican "Get out to Vote" vans were slashed - leaving many Republicans very angry. Finally, years later the accused are getting their trial. Court TV is actually covering the story - it's a shame that no one actually watches Court TV.

Here's a recap from an article on

"One witness told investigators the five defendants, dressed in "Mission Impossible"-type gear, black outfits and knit caps, left the Democratic Party headquarters at about 3 a.m. on Nov. 2, and returned about 20 minutes later, extremely excited and talking about how they had slashed the tires."

Now because the Democrats are blaming Abramoff on us (he is a republican), we have every right to accuse the DNC of sabotage, right? Well, we all know it doesn't work this way but I'm glad that these democrats are at least being tried for their crimes.

Must Read Article

I frequent this progressive site and have stumbled across a great debate over Jesus and his political views. Interesting read and very active (reached 60 comments). I implore you all to go over and chime in with your conservative views. Dan, the blog owner, claims that republicans/conservatives can't base any of our laws/political ideology on Christ's teaching. Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

America won't buy America

Interesting article here on how our beloved Congress dropped the "Buy America" language in a current Defense bill. Bush obviously will sign (when hasn't he) and now we will abandon our own country's manufacturing capabilities.

I still tend to lean towards competition and 'best price' practices, but when considering what we are purchasing, one must consider the outcome. When this bill passes, the Air Force would then be flying European manufactured Refueling Tankers as opposed to "Made in the USA" military products. Of course the bill won't be questioned - even Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif who inserted the "Buy America" language laid down on the removal.

Saving tax money = losing jobs. Hmmmm. Tough one.

The Moment You've all been waiting for...

I'm back and ready to go. I have a couple of resolutions for 2006.

1. Quit the God-awful habit of smoking.
2. Reveal stupidity and expunge it with pure irritation (irritation provided by #1).
3. Ensure our victory in mid-elections of '06.
4. Attempt to show more gratification to our much-deserved troops.

Be prepared for a year of excellence and intelligence supported by the facts, right here on NCT.
