Yikes! That Was No Fun.

I am just now getting up and around from being in bed for 36 hours due to a nasty case of food poisoning thanks to a frozen seafood and pasta delight.
I don't even want to go into the details,just let me say I have an intimate working knowledge of my toilet.
I don't know what was worse, the puking and hershey squirts or the vicious body and joint pains for 18 hours.
Gah, Now I have to go to work too.

Hey Paris, Can I Get Some Fries With That?

Paris Hilton's grandfather to leave most of his fortune to charity

By Susannah Rosenblatt, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer

2:47 PM PST, December 26, 2007
Hotel magnate Barron Hilton, grandfather of heiress Paris Hilton, has bequeathed $2.3 billion, or 97% of his net worth, to his father's charity foundation, officials said today.

The contribution to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, to come from the sale of Hilton Hotels Corp. and the pending sale of Harrah's Entertainment Inc. after the money is placed in a trust, is the largest in the foundation's history and will bring its value to about $4.5 billion.

Ouch.
At least he didn't leave it to a fucking dog.

If You Can Read This

Then you have survived yet another Christmas in the Bush era.
Pat yourself on the back.

Christmas to me is a giant pain in the ass. Running all over the fucking country side, going to family parties, the company party, THE MALL.......AAAAAUUUUUGH!!
I fucking HATE the mall.
Ten thousand stupid sonsabitches wandering aimlessly at the same time.Can't find a parking spot, it ALWAYS has to be raining,this year it was cold as hell just for fun.
We actually had a bit of snow on Christmas day. That is pretty rare around here,hasn't happened in over ten years.
Of course it didn't stick but it still lifted a lot of spirits for a bit.
Anyway,I got myself a used laptop after I hit two hundred and fifty bucks fartin' around gambling with pull tabs last friday night. I hit it right at closing time and for once didn't have the opportunity to throw it back in.
I'm liking that. I don't have access to the toobz at home yet,but I am going to be house sitting for my folks for two months while they traipse around SOCAL and AZ. They have wireless and I got the card and have already tested it out.
That'll give me something to do besides sitting on a bar stool,seeings how I quit drinking.
All righty then, have a great day and start looking forward to the New Year so we can put another notch in our belts and start looking forward to the end of the Bush administration and hopefully a lot of subpoenas and resignations this coming year.

Kristol, Krauthammer Are Out On Their Asses.

My apologies to the New York Observer for having to fix their damn headline for 'em.

Two of the worst fucking Neocons with the biggest fucking mouths and the worst records for fortune telling are Out. The. Door. at Time magazine.
The reasons for their leaving are "Unclear".

I don't care what the fucking reasons are, I have plenty of 'em. Kristol, where do I start with this pompous fucking jackass?
This guy has one of those smirks you want to slap clear around the other side of his head before he even opens his mouth.
The guy is like a methed out jackhammer when it comes to spewing right wing talking points, ya can't shut him up and ya can't hear anything else cause he's drowning it out with his ridiculous blather.
The dude has been so wrong, for so long, that he is a caricature of the Republican mouth piece.
Now if we could just have him disappear off of the Sunday Talking Head gravy train, there might be some piece and fucking quiet for a minute.

Krauthammer on the other hand, isn't quite as vociferous as Kristol, but he is just as fucking wrong and just as fucking guilty of spreading the Neocon snake oil.
He also has one of those smirks.Whats up with that shit anyway?

You would think it would be prudent to back off the smug, know it all demeanor when you have been publicly vilified repeatedly about the political chicken bone readings as these two have.
I don't even want to go into who Time has on tap after these two, it's just as bad.
Another wannabe right wing Neocon,'cept this one's balls haven't dropped yet and is still waiting for puberty so his voice will change.
I ain't worried that we are completely shut of Bloody Bill Kristol and his ilk, the Right Wing Welfare system has already placed them in cozy, well paying digs, so this latest set back is just one small bit of bandwidth that has been temporarily sanitized.

It says something though, when a main stream media conglomerate like Time boots out two highly recognized warmongers with out so much as a publicly given reason.

Merry Christmas boy's and girls.

The Scruggs Case

Summers Criticizes Handling of Crises
Bush, Fed 'Behind the Curve,' Ex-Treasury Secretary Says


By Neil Irwin
Washington Post Staff Writer

Thursday, December 20, 2007; Page D01

President Bush and the Federal Reserve aren't taking aggressive enough action to prevent a recession, former Treasury secretary Lawrence H. Summers said yesterday, as Democrats ramped up their attacks on the administration's handling of the housing downturn and credit crises.

Summers, who worked in the Clinton administration, said the risk of a prolonged recession is higher than most economists recognize. He said it is "distinctly possible" that the nation will experience its worst economic conditions since the stagflation of the 1970s and severe recessions of the early '80s.


Lawrence Summers, who served under Clinton, advocates a temporary tax cut and rise in social spending.


"For the last year, the economic consensus, and the policy actions that have flowed from it, has been consistently behind the curve in recognizing the gravity of the problems in the housing and financial sectors and their consequences for the overall economy," Summers said in a speech at the Brookings Institution.
snip

This must be where the Repugs are having heart attacks trying to get in line to denounce this guy as a tax and spend Democrat.
He has the spend part down anyway.

Anyway, I just wanted to point out yet another example of the warnings that have been coming down the pike on a regular basis lately.
All this deficit spending that Stupie McFuckwit has been doing that the DEMS have been shitting rings around themselves to give him, is going to amplify the housing and financial problems. Mark my words, this is going to get ugly and not go away.
The Fed hasn't got a handle on this and the finger in the wind crowd are starting to smell stink finger big time.
Of course that isn't going to help you or I.
The ones who are really going to get slammed are the working poor and the ones on the margins now.
In case you haven't heard, Food banks in this country are struggling from the economy already and have been begging for more donations since last summer.They can't hardly keep up with the usual holiday rush as it is. Just wait, there are going to be thousands of families facing real hunger that have always considered themselves middle class.
There ain't a middle class anymore.
It's us and them.

Your Government In Action

Senate conservatives break all-time obstructionism record.

After Senate conservatives “filibustered an omnibus budget bill” yesterday, they set “a modern-day record for blocking the most legislation during a congressional session,” according to a new report by the Campaign for America’s Future. In just the first year of the 110th Congress, conservatives have used the filibuster 62 times, topping the record set by the entire 107th Congress.
Courtesy, Think Progress.

Think Progress, Great name for a website, not so much a political strategy it seems.
The time is coming when these Repug obstructionist motherfuckers aren't going to have the stroke they have now and the volume of their screeching will go up exponentially.

Covering Bush's ass as they have so far, will soon be an exersize in self flaggelation.
Now that Trent Lott is gone, so is his official sphere of influence, that has to help.
Of course, Trent boy has his hands full of steaming hot shit right now with a huge investigation into misdeeds by his lawyer brother in law Dickie Scruggs.
To get the drift of just how much shit is headed downhill at warp speed towards 'ol Trent, you HAVE to go visit my friend Lotus over at FOLO.
She has been covering this like ants at a picnic.
Stop over and find out how high the tide is at the waste water plant that is the Scruggs case.
Tell the Flowa Busted sent ya. She's a hoot!

What Did I Tell Ya?

House panel prepares subpoenas for CIA officials.

After Attorney General Mike Mukasey blocked CIA officials from appearing at a closed hearing before Congress last week, the House Intelligence Committee “said Wednesday it has prepared subpoenas to force CIA officials to testify about the agency’s secret destruction of interrogation videotapes.”

This going to get REAL good.

I'm sure there will be more tomorrow.

BWWAAAAHA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAA!!!

Yeah, I Know

I have been dickin' around with the colors and font sizes,believe me, I am no computer whiz.
It was buggin' the shit out of me , the contrast of highlighted links and the Blogroll color, wayyyyy too gray,hard on my old eyes.
The new color really pops out, it's easier to distinguish a hyperlink now, but it might be a bit much.
Make any suggestions or flat out bitch if you want, in the comments please.

Fire out at building next to White House.

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Firefighters quickly doused a two-alarm fire Wednesday in the historic Eisenhower Executive Office Building, which houses the vice president's ceremonial offices and the majority of the White House staff.


Smoke billows from a window in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on Wednesday.


Firefighting crews used axes to break windows on the third floor of the ornate building shortly after the two-alarm blaze broke out after 9 a.m.

The fire started near the vice presidential offices, CNN's Kathleen Koch reported.

Cheney gets a twofer,someone left the soldering iron he uses for information gathering on too close to the documents he wants to disappear.
Just wild assed speculation, of course.

Oh Yeah, They Got Them A Problem

This CIA torture tape thing is starting to get really good, by destroying the videotape evidence showing the "enhanced interrogation techniques" in action,some high level muckitty muck Whitehouse lawyers have got their tits in a wringer.

At least four top White House lawyers — Harriet Miers, John Bellinger, Alberto Gonzales, and David Addington — “took part in discussions with the” CIA “between 2003 and 2005 about whether to destroy videotapes showing the secret interrogations.” “Some top White House officials” reportedly voiced “vigorous sentiment” in favor of the destruction.

snip , Link: Think Progress

Yeppers, they wanted those tapes GONE.
Problem for them is, that's called destruction of evidence.
Getting together and agreeing to have the tapes destroyed?
Yeah, that's a conspiracy.
Throw in obstruction of justice just for shits and grins and it suddenly appears the Shithouse lawyers have got a serious problem.
Yet another imbroglio for the Bush misAdministration.

Little Miss Greatest President Evah is already in the shit for failing to appear to a subpoena at Senate investigations, along with that carbuncle Karl Rove.
This CIA torture thing has got legs, baby, we may just get to see Rummy back in the headlines yet.

I Am Number 1!!

According to my handy dandy little gizmo that keeps track of what brings people here,
I am THE ,number one spot, Google directs you to when you enter the following query;
fuck, shit, damn, asshole, bastard.

First I'd like to thank my parents, then all the little people, without who, I would not be able to celebrate such a momentous occasion.
You know who you are.

Bush To Speechify Again,

I heard on the news this morning that Stupie McFuckwit is going to try and string some sentences together again this morning.
He is reportedly going to try and ease the plebians fears of the now looming recession, and then try and bully Congress, again, to pass his fucked up budget.
I do believe one follows the other there, Stupie.
You have killed our budget and hung it's still moist hide on the barn door to cure as the latest trophy in a long list of things you have Fucked Up Beyond Recognition.
Yes, Stupie will go down in history as the FUBAR President.
Never met a government program that he couldn't fuck up.
Bush is the kind of guy that could break a cast iron anvil with a rubber mallet.
What kills me is that pretty much anymore, all anyone is doing is waiting for the stupid cocksucker to get out.
Kind of like the dentist drilling away and you can feel the novacaine wearing off, all you can think of is, Hurry The Fuck Up!

And The Huge Balls Award Goes To...........

Tow truck driver arrested for trying to hook police car

09:46 AM PST on Friday, December 14, 2007

By DAVID KROUGH, kgw.com Staff

GRESHAM -- A Gresham tow truck driver was arrested after officers said he tried to take revenge against a citation by towing an officers car during a domestic call.


Three officers were at the apartments on NE 23rd early Thursday, when one of them was dispatched to another call. While leaving the scene he noticed a tow truck hooking up one of the patrol cars.

Police said they told 32-year-old Gerald Sveyerson to relase the tow hold, but Sveryson complained about a previous ticket, then locked himself in the towtruck and refused to talk to officers. Then, officers said he called his dispatch and asked for help from another police unit.

(My emphasis,this where the award comes from)

The towing supervisor was eventually called in to defuse the situation with help of police.

Sveyrson was charged with interfering with police and criminal mischief.

Contemtpible Scumbag Now Officially Contemtpible.

G.W. Bush's brain is now an official Contemptible Scumbag according to the US Senate.
Like we didn't already know that, I think it's amazing it didn't take another year for them to come to that conclusion.


US lawmakers vote to hold Bolten, Rove in contempt

REUTERS
Reuters North American News Service

Dec 13, 2007 10:36 EST

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee voted Thursday to hold two top aides to President Bush in contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate in its probe of fired federal prosecutors.

On a largely party-line vote of 11-7, the Democratic-led panel sent contempt citations against White House Chief of Staff Josh Bolten and former Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove to the full Senate for consideration.

As with many of Bush's battles with the Democratic-led Senate, the president may ultimately prevail since his fellow Republicans may be able to block the citations with a procedural hurdle.

snip

Why wouldn't they?
Fer Chrissakes ,they have blocked almost every fucking thing the Dems have brought to a vote.
I remember when the cheeky cocksuckers were blustering to kill the fillibuster permanently with "The Nuclear Option".
No good weasels.
I can't understand how the party of Manly Men who call everyone terrorist supportin' pussies at every turn can be such whiny, sniveling little bitches whenever they don't get their way.
I'd be fuckin' embarrassed and ashamed of myself if I acted like that.

Anyway, Rove and Bolten need not squirm in their panties, they have a seemingly unlimited supply of professional fuckin' screaming abuse victims to moan , bitch and obfuscate over this travesty.
Unbelievably, Snarlin' Arlin voted for the contempt charges.
Of course that dog dick will ultimately side with Bush like he always does,the usual mouth full of platitudes and a quick headfake for the deke.The fucking guy rolls over on his back and pisses all over his stomach like an abused puppy whenever Bush just looks at him. Must be nice to have a senior senator trained like that.

All I can say is I am very happy that Senator Leahy has not dropped the ball and is plodding along turning over rocks and keeping the R team on defense.
If the Dems keep caving on every Goddamn thing that Bush rolls out and snivels about supportin' the troops or whatever damn call button he pushes, at least I have this little bit of entertainment.
Well, that and the CIA sticking a finger in his eye over this torture business.

Go take a peek and be nice while your there,you can raise all the Hell ya want when ya come back.

Think Progress has this up this morning;


Former CIA Interrogator: We Carried Out Torture Because The White House Told Us To


In an interview last night with ABC News, John Kiriakou — the CIA official who headed the team that interrogated al Qaeda leader Abu Zubaydah — said that Zubaydah was waterboarded, but defended those actions as having prevented “maybe dozens” of planned attacks and “probably saved lives.”

But despite his vigorous defense of his past conduct, Kiriakou says he now views what he did as torture and says that he would not recommend those tactics going forward. “We don’t need enhanced techniques to get that nugget of information,” he said in an interview with Matt Lauer this morning on The Today Show.

Lauer asked Kiriakou where the permission was given to carry out torture. “Was the White House involved in that decision?” Lauer asked. “Absolutely,” Kiriakou said, adding:

This isn’t something done willy nilly. It’s not something that an agency officer just wakes up in the morning and decides he’s going to carry out an enhanced technique on a prisoner. This was a policy made at the White House, with concurrence from the National Security Council and Justice Department.
Snip

Yep, what we figured all along.
Stupie McFuckwit got coerced by Darth and Rummsfiel, guaranteed.
You know that stupid fucker isn't smart enough to find his ass with either hand and has to ask permission to use the bathroom.
BUT, sign off on it he did.
Now we hear that the CIA actually taped some of this happening and when the heat turned up, erased the tapes, destroying evidence, and committing crimes in the process.There is a shitstorm coming, long overdue, over this.Starting at Abu Graib years ago now, this administration and lots of agencies in it have systematically tortured people, kidnapped them right off the fucking streets, and illegally flown them to various countries to have them tortured and imprisoned.
Fuck the Fourth amendment, the Constitution is just a Goddamn piece of paper, just ask George Walker Bush, the 43rd President of the United States of America.
And already some are speculating that Georgie has a plan, well, somebody has a plan;

“I think there’s a real possibility one of President Bush’s last acts very well might be granting immunity to certain CIA employees,” a defense attorney who has defended military personnel accused of prisoner abuse, Frank Spinner, said. “I think it depends in part on the election.”
snip

Unfortunately for Stupie, the fucking asshole can't pardon himself.
Just another day in the disintegrating country that I grew up in.
I wonder what Brittany is up to today?

Update:

TPM has more;

Today's Must Read

The CIA official who ordered the destruction of the torture tapes apparently acted on advice of CIA counsel--though not the CIA's general counsel. Does that leave a paper trail for investigators?

Talk About A Good Time....


Christ all mighty, did I have one last night.
I went to a Flogging Molly concert with a buddy of mine, he turned me on to this band about six months ago.
If you EVER get a chance, go see them.
Fun?
Oh hell yeah.
They are an Irish band, they play a lot of traditional instruments, fiddle, flute, mandolin, squeeze box etc, for some traditional sounding Irish drinking ballads that they write and blend the ballad style with Kick Fucking Ass Rock and Roll.
It was a smallish venue so there were no bad seats, the sound guy finally got his shit together after mauling the second opening band and the crowd was ready.
Have you ever been to a show where the audience knows every word, to every song, and sings loudly?
I could hear the crowd OVER the band several times, they have a very dedicated following.
You could tell the band was having fun and the whole thing was great,even the really drunk folks weren't too obnoxious.It was general admission and the Mosh pit got rowdy right away but ,surprise the shit outta me,they settled down and just grooved with the flow!
They are coming out with a new album, they just got back from Ireland recording it and played three songs off of it.
Go see this band, you will love it.

Oh, yeah, got the obligatory 'T' shirt too.

Check out the videos or check YouTube, It's plain old fun just to listen but the videos give you an idea of concert time.

Trex Has Moved

Our Therapod friend has spread his wings again.
After his year and a half stint at Firedoglake,turning the latenite shift into a cult with a following of thousands, he moved into a tree house for a bit . Apparently that was just long enough to throw a giant party.
After completely trashing the joint, he has quietly snuck out of the neighborhood in the middle of the night, leaving beer bottles, a few dazed groupies and a couch.
His latest digs are here. I think he plans on staying here awhile,he finally told his mom the address.
Now I have to update my Blogroll again.

Damn Those Pesky Facts

U.S. Says Iran Ended Atomic Arms Work
Report Contradicts Prior Intelligence Assessment
By MARK MAZZETTI 43 minutes ago at THE NEW YORK TIMES.

A new assessment by American intelligence agencies concludes that Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and that the program remains on hold, contradicting a previous intelligence report.

This comes out the very day Darth goes duck hunting in a dry county in Arkansas.
Coinkydink?
I think not.
Darth has been fucking around with this NIE just like he did with the one begging for war in Iraq.
It has been reported that Cheney has personally been involved, repeatedly, trying to shape the NIE to his advantage.Motherfucker just don't take NO for an answer when it comes to starting shit without a damn good reason.
Bomb Iran? Not now baby.
The fucking guy is a menace to humanity.He has undoubtedly known this for quite some time, yet repeatedly called for preemptively NUKING Iran to stop a nuclear program that was already shut down.
Fuck, where have I heard this shit before?
Something to do with weapons of mass destruction.Weapons that didn't exist.Weapons that he was TOLD didn't exist.Yeah, thats right!, Iraq!!Too bad about that Plame woman and all that CIA shit that came apart at the seams.Can't have any truthiness get out to the average Joe.(Pun intended)

Impeachment is off the table, we have been told that over and over,even though this is EXACTLY why it is in the fucking Constitution.
What the FUCK is it going to take to wake these willfully blind and deaf politicians to the fact that we have a homicidal maniac for a Vice President?

The real kick in the nuts is that the asshole is more than likely going to waltz out of the Whitehouse with an armload of free parting gifts and fucking disappear.

UPDATE.
Just for shits and grins click on the link and go over to Think Progress and see the documented lies from BushCo about Iran's Nuke threat yourself.
Fucking Bastards.
