This Covers Everything In My Book

Enough Said...

I Had No Idea

Dang She Was Good Lookin'

I missed this story until today, and it seems that most of the media did also. It seems that actress Yvonne De Carlo AKA Lilly Munster died this week at the age of 84.

Here what she looked like in the mid 1960's at the age of 43...

And here she is in the 1940's:

The other thing I didn't know about her was that she played opposite Charlton Heston as "Moses wife" in the 1950's classic "The Ten Commandments."

Movies, TV, Broadway, acting, dancing, singing..a life well lived, I'd say.

RIP Miss Yvonne...

Racial Hysteria

Get Over Yourselves

Good God people it‘s 2007, not 1867 last time I checked.

I’m sitting here watching Hannity & Colmes on FOX news and they’ve just spent the past five minutes talking about another stupid assed so-called celebrity getting caught on camera outside a Los Angeles comedy club, using the dreaded “N” word.

That’s right, some white boy said the word “Nigger”, and everybody has thrown off their clothes and is in the process of writhing around on the ground, peeing and drooling on themselves.

I’m entirely sick of this shit.

People are even afraid of the word Niggardly (it's a real word...look it up for yourself, and it's not a racial term.)

There, I just wrote the word “nigger” and "Niggardly" in consecutive paragraphs…so SUE me.

Go ahead, stop reading my blog if you must.

See if I care, dammit.

The act of writing a word or thinking a word does not, in my opinion reduce the humanity or social value of any one individual or race of people.

We as a national culture have all been forced to become so hyper sensitive to a word that blacks negros African Americans people of color routinely are allowed to throw at each other on the street, on music videos, and in jail, that we apparently can’t or won't continue to function normally if confronted with a single utterance in public.

I’ve written at length in the past here on this blog about the use of the word “Redneck” and my desire to prevent it getting posted on the “black list” of words that cause the demise of individuals’ professional careers and public popularity based on polite usage.

What ever happened to “Sticks and Stones may break my bones but words will never harm me…”?

This Redneck happens to enjoy the term, and most intelligent, successful people of color should be no more offended by the “N” word than I am of the “R” word.

We are, after all, adults here?

Aren’t we?

The North Pole

Get The Facts For Yourself

I haven't mentioned it, but I'm currently fooling around with a project in Faribanks, Alaska. The temperature there was -40 degrees F in the middle of the day earlier this week.

If you have free long distance on your phone, just for fun take a minute and call 907-488-1111 to get the time and temperature in a place just down the street in North Pole, Alaska. (it's warmed up to -5 degrees F there right now...)

Isn't it interesting the things you learn here reading my website?

Playing The Fiddle While Rome Burns

When Will We All Learn?

Excuse me, but I’ve just recovered from lapsing into a Coma during the replay on FOX News of President Bush’s speech tonight about Iraq.

I’m actually really sorry, but I’m afraid that I believe that the new policy is failed from the outset because…

In the end, when it is all said and done, that the Democrats will end up emasculating the effort and (sorry mom and sister and other sensitive female relatives and readers) I Personally believe that we should BOMB THE ASS OFF OF EVERYONE LIVING IN THE SANDS OF THE MIDDLE EAST THAT SO MUCH AS RAISE A MIDDLE FINGER TOWARD OUR FORCES…but then again I’m just one lonely white middle aged white man living the life of luxury on St. Simons Island, earned by the blood of generations of military forces deployed overseas since 1776.

Then there is this totally stupid, totally useless, #$%& Donald Trump--Rosie O'Donald BS argument that the TV media is insistent on holding up under our nose for us all to smell.

New Jersey Got It Right To Begin With

Now They're Going To Screw It All Up...

Being a good southern Redneck, I enjoy taking the opportunity to occasionally poke fun at our friends that live north of the Mason Dixon line.

Things like cooking and eating Grits, speach patterns, life attitudes in general--nothing is sacred when I turn my sights on your lifestyle regardless of where you live.

Now it has come to my attention that New Jersey has an interesting constitutional limitation addressing who or whom can vote in local and national elections.

It seems that New Jersey can currently legally keep you from voting if you're an IDIOT:

PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania (Reuters) -- New Jersey is to consider cutting the word 'idiot' from its constitution so that people with some mental disabilities won't be barred from voting.

State Senate President Richard Codey introduced a bill Monday that would remove language from the New Jersey constitution that was designed more than 150 years ago to prevent people suffering from mental illness or handicap from casting their vote in national, state or local elections.

Codey wants to eliminate a section that says "no idiot or insane person should enjoy the right of suffrage" and substitute with a reference to "a person who has been adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction to lack the capacity to understand the act of voting."

I say that instead of changing the New Jersey law, that we aught to vote the same language into the constitution of the other 49 states and the District of Columbia, then sit back and enjoy the results of our efforts.

In lieu of the "idiot" language, I think that everyone should at least be able to identify a picture of their state and national representatives/senators before they are allowed into the voting booth.

Wouldn't it be fun to eliminate the party affiliation designation from the ballot and see the outcome of an election where the voters had to actually know who and what they were voting for rather than just punching the button beside the big "D" or "R"?

Then again, maybe it's just me...

Is It The Thought That Really Matters…

Or Are You Actually Going To Second Guess My Intentions?

OK folks, suppose that tomorrow I run out and buy my dream boat, a 46’ Hatteras Open Cockpit Motor yacht.

Twin 500 HP Cummings Diesel engines, big generator, air conditioning, Radar, GPS, depth sounder, autopilot, and two or three thousand gallons of fuel tankage.

The next thing you know, I’m sailing to the Bahamia’s and on to Mexico on an almost non-stop basis, and my coolers and dock side freezers will be overflowing with Snapper, Mackerel, and Bonita, along with generous portions of caviar harvested from various species of fish that we encountered along the way of our journeys.

Then suppose that once I return home, I get the urge to do some charitable work, so I decide to run over to downtown Brunswick a couple of days each week and offer a free buffet of Sushi to the large population of ”underprivileged” and “disadvantaged” street people bums and hobos urban outdoorsmen that are commonly found riding around on bicycles and walking around on their poorly shod & shorn feet each and every day.

So Good so Far…Right?

What would you think if some stupid assed liberal-shit-for-brains federal judge distinguished jurist forbade me from offering my “free sushi buffet”, under the legal grounds that each and every homeless person didn’t actually like raw fish and raw fish eggs; and therefore it wasn’t fair for some people to enjoy my largess while others were forced to eat free soup and fried chicken at the other numerous canteens and homeless shelters distributed throughout the city of Brunswick and the county of Glynn?

I’d say that the judiciary should spend their time deliberating something for someone that actually gives a damn and deserves their intervention, but apparently in France the pitiful surendermonkeys Senior French Judges are more concerned about who can eat free food than they are worrying about who might be starving to death.

PARIS - A top French judge ruled that an extreme-right group cannot serve pork soup to the needy, saying the charitable handouts aim to discriminate against Muslims and Jews who don't eat pork because of their faith.

Judge Christian Vigouroux of the Council of State, the country's highest administrative body, said late Friday that such giveaways by the far-right group Solidarity of the French threaten public order.

His ruling approved a decision by Paris police to refuse permits to the group on the grounds that such handouts could spark angry reactions.

France is home to more than 5 million Muslims and some 600,000 Jews. Both Islam and Judaism prohibit eating pork, and Vigouroux said the group had shown "a clearly discriminatory goal" with its charity.

I swear to God, people, but this whole political correctness thing is completely out of hand, and if it keeps going down the path we’re on we’re all going to wake up one day with our own wild eyed Muslim living in our basement or garage, for free, under government mandate.

Think about this concept with me for a minute.

If I own a pig farm, do I have to sell my pigs to buy Fillet Mignon, Goose Liver Pate, and/or Fois Gras; because there might be some militant Muslim towel head or a radical Jew in the crowd that couldn’t eat from the charity that I’m willing to deliver without offending their religion?

Well then, I have a simple solution.

I say that if you don’t like what I’m serving, in MY establishment, on MY street, in MY country, for FREE, then get the &%$@# OUT.

Go back home or back to where ever you came from.


Right Now…

Don’t you dare come down to my door asking for free food, then bring your sheister hack legal council ACLU representative Barrister with you purporting to have some grievance against my charitable efforts.

What the hell are they thinking over there in France any way?

Sorry, but I’ve got to go now, before my brain explodes…

Insignificant Significance

Thank GOD That It’s All Over With For A While…

Well, the college football season drew to a belated conclusion last evening with the University of Florida’s pounding of a smug Ohio State University team somewhere in the arid lands called Arizona.

Does anyone but me think that Arizona senator John McCain looks like he just had dental surgery and has a mouth full of cotton balls every time he’s seen on TV (or perhaps he looks like Felix the Cat that just swallowed a Canary.)

Even if he calls himself a Republican, and even if the Viet Cong drove bamboo spikes under his fingernails and into his urethera, I still hate him for his so-called campaign finance reform legislation that may end up causing me to have to quit blogging else risk the wrath of the campaign funding nazis; and for his grandstanding on President Bush’s Supreme Court judiciary appointments last year.

I’d almost consider voting for Hillary before I’d vote for McCain if that’s all the GOP can muster as a presidential candidate in 2008.

Any way, that son-of-a-bitch had to get his stupid mug on my TV screen last night by his participation in the tossing the coin for the kickoff decision, and just in case you didn’t know it we (the taxpayers) had to pay the entire congress for another day off of their leisurely schedule so that members of the Ohio and Florida delegation could spend time kissing asses spend the evening attending the game.

At least this year the vaulted BCS ranking system produced a consensus #1 team for a change. My team lead the pack of whimpy “also-ran’s” and crumpled under their own weight in December, making their January 1st bowl appearance a mere footnote in the anus annals of college football history.

I’ve got to go now, because if I get any grumpier I’m going to embarrass myself with profanity laced ranting about things that really don’t matter to anyone but me.

Just call me a cranky old bastard, I guess…

Tactical Bullshit

Why Don’t We Just Hand Them All Of Our Plans?

Picture me slumped over my keyboard, with my eye’s rolled back in my head and drool running out of the corner of my mouth, dripping onto my stomach.

Now picture me as a professional journalist…but I’m being redundant…

Now let me ask you this question:

How the hell can the so called “war on terrorism” be successfully fought if the media and the politicians insist on broadcasting to the so-called terrorists our every move, weeks in advance of our efforts?

Seriously, if we want to actually win this military engagement, why do we keep on telling them what we are going to do and where and when we are going to do it well in advance so that they can prepare for it?

If a football team had to play every game with a TV news reporter looking over the coach’s shoulder and one standing in the huddle with the players, and before each play they announced “option run to the right” or “long pass downfield on a post pattern,” how successful do you think that their offensive scoring efforts would be.

Then if you told the defense that they had to try to stop the opposing team from scoring, but that they couldn’t tackle anyone without causing a public uproar, wouldn’t you expect to be on the losing end of the score?

Our current fiasco is the debate over the "surge" of 25,000 extra US troops into Iraq sometime in the near future.

Blaa Blaa blaa, blaa, blaaaaa blaaaa blaaaa blaaaa...

"OK Mister towel head terrorist...go ahead and run away or hide because if you wait a few months the status will be quo again and you can go back to placing roadside bombs after Speaker Pelosi and the Democrats cut funding and we all head for San Francisco to attend another Grateful Dead concert."

Unfortunately, Israel is in the same boat as the US, with the publication of the latest British Newspaper’s accounts of possible strikes on Iranian nuclear facilities with small scale atomic weapons.

Of course Israel is denying making any such plans BUT, if the story were TRUE, the stupid %$#@& British pacifist press has put Iran on notice and if they are smart their fighters are on heightened alert status and like Iraq they are probably moving personnel and equipment/materials around to prevent possible destruction.

I swear to God, I wish that we could just divide the country up based on political ideology, build a wall around the states containing all of the left leaning anti-war, anti-law enforcement, anti-death penalty crowd, and let nature take it's course.

I guaran-damn-tee you that within five years they (the leftists) would be bankrupt with the loss of MY tax dollars (and those like me of similar mind), and Canada and Mexico will have invaded and taken over what was left after the crack addicts and thugs got through raping and pillaging the lovely leftists' asses.

My opinion may be unpopular and politically incorrect, but I know that I'm RIGHT, and I'll die defending your right to disagree with me.

I truely wish that the feeling was mutual...
