To the brig with ya matey! My recommendation:
- Rename all your MP3s, (filename).riaa.
- Doubleclick the file.
- Instruct Windoze to launch.riaa files with your favorite MP3 player or only keep your pirated music on CD.

Other than the militant Islamic fundamentalism, Osama seems quite lucid. I don't excuse his approach but he does a fine job of stating his postion and elaborating on precisely why they hate us so much.

I wonder how receptive all the VPs at work will be when I start dumping this into the middle of their aesthetically painful Powerpoint charts?

Could someone let me know if this is a very well done farce or if someone needs to send out a search party for some bones?

So we've got quite the

So we've got quite the wintery weather upon us now. If I don't find a solution to the problem I created yesterday I'm going to be in a world of hurt. 95% of my trees have kindly shed their leaves..........unfortunately leaf vacuuming from the pool is a catch-22. Too early and the leaves aren't degraded enough to pull through the hoses/traps. Too late and the bio-mass degrades and the entire pool becomes too dark to work with. A gorgeous weekend in November mandated I get my fall-ish work completed in a timely manner. Unfortunately this puts me in situation 1 of my catch-22. Clogging. Three drain bladders later ( you should hear these things blow), I have a fully clogged pump system, a pending freeze, a pump that needs to be backwashed and an ever-quickly blackening pool. I've got all the pump timers turned off (it hurts me to hear the pump try and pull water when it's that clogged) but am at risk of my thermometer automatically activating the pump when it drops below 37F. If it doesn't, it's at risk of freezing which will cause the pipes to freeze and...........I definitely can't afford to dig up the decking to fix pipes.

Time to call in the experts. Bye bye Xmas fund.

Not going out to go to work and finding both your car and truck doors standing wide open with all the contents tossed liberally about. What absolute morons. They managed to score change, pocket change. I store nothing in my truck and unless they're hard up for baby rattles, there's nothing in the car. WTF?

Well, this settles an argument.

Well, this settles an argument.

Our pal Georgie Shrubie seems to love his job and the little people he's in position to rule. As told to Bob Woodward, President Bush: "I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being the President. Maybe somebody needs to explain to me why they say something, but I don't feel like I owe anybody an explanation." Well bless his little J. Edgar Hooverish little pea-pickin' heart. This makes sense given his post election/placement..............."GOV. GEORGE W. BUSH (R-TX), PRESIDENT-ELECT: I told all four that there were going to be some times where we don't agree with each other. But that's OK. If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator."

The Leonid meteor shower was

The Leonid meteor shower was pretty amazing this morning, even with the city lights. Climbed up on the roof, backed my butt up against the pines to block out the moon and got a light show. Hopefully the pictures will come out and I will have successfully captured something. As always, the two most magnificent moments occured while I was sneezing and changing film. One seemed to drop straight down into our neighborhood. Highly unlikely but it was incredibly vivid and bright. The other streaked across the sky to disappear for a split second and then reappear and continued it's path of light. Magnificent and worth dragging my ass out of bed at 4am.

Here's to nature.

This just in: WASHINGTON (Reuters)

This just in:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush, today in a passioned speech marking Veterans day announced in support of those who have served the nation so valiantly, will rejoin his troop in Alabama and finish out the remaining 17 months of service to his country. Speaking from the heart, Bush stated "Service to our nation through enlistment embiggens each and every man and woman". He went on to say that in an effort to right the nation's concerns over his questionable absence, he would right the perception of an "easy ride of privilege". "No one should be exempt from completing a commitment, extraspecially those whose are electeds" Bush said. "I do this to show my solidarity for the troops we are currently deploying to the Middle East". Ari Fleischer later, restated the last comment as 'plan to deploy' and dismissed the comment as merely a Freudian slip caused by a planning session that circumvented the President's standing 9:30pm bedtime Sunday night.

Among those attending the event in the White House East Room were U.S. military top brass, veterans organization leaders and British World War II veterans. Britain was been the main U.S. partner in winning a tough U.N. disarmament resolution on Iraq last week and is a likely ally in any military action.

Earlier on Monday, Bush made an unannounced visit to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.

He walked along the polished black face of the memorial, which lists the more than 58,000 American soldiers who died or are listed as missing in the war, and shook hands with other visitors. Unidentified sources close to the President noted that under his breath, he was to have remarked, "There by the grace of God, money and missing documents, go I".

The US of A is,

The US of A is, per the propaganda, at war. At war with concepts, sensations, and inanimate objects. We are set to do battle with and or are in full combat with the following; drugs (nothing's worse than a grenade launcher in the hands of a cannabis plant), terror ( or..an overwhelming feeling of fear and anxiety) and evil (or..moral offence; wickedness; depravity.)

Keeping in line with this line of tactical reasoning, I'd like to propose a full scale onslaught against; apathy, sunshine and pickles. We need to up the defense spending just a little, but not much. I want full media coverage, complete with a biased POV, when the BATF takes on the Del Monte canners.

So the Demosplats rolled over

So the Demosplats rolled over and played dead this election and got, precisely what they asked for............nothing.

Quoting Joe Conason,

"A party that will not criticize the incumbent president cannot defeat him, now or two years from now. A party that has nothing to say about unfair tax breaks, a vanishing surplus and a looted economy cannot expect anyone to listen when it asks for votes. A party without passion or vision is hardly a political party at all. Even in their righteous defense of Social Security, Democrats too often sounded as if their chief concern was to preserve their own institutional position. Today the future looks grim for them because they blurred the purposes of their partisanship. "

So now, the White House is busy slapping it's fundraising self on the back and congratulating itself for confirming their "mandate". To them, I have this to say, "Get Busy". Time to show us what you've got. Zero opposition in the Judiciary branch, a quorum in the Legislative houses and a White House fantasy, only dreamt of previously, by Limbaugh and Liddy. With this set up, I expect nothing less than a push to overturn Roe v Wade, a full blown war in Iraq, a deficit unimaginable even two years ago and at a minimum, a methodical erosion of the Bill of Rights..............oh, and let's try for a full alienation of all of Europe.

FWIW, I'm not bitter...........I'm horribly disappointed.

Yard sign in the neighborhood: "Support Bush, vote a straight Republican ticket"

Odd. I thought we were supporting the United States of America simply by voting. I was unaware that our voting our minds and hearts in any way, underminded the sitting president. This IMNSHO, is laziness. Looking over the ballots in Dallas County, a straight party punch, either way, eliminates choice where either a 'R' or a 'D' is running against an 'I' or a 'L'. Is it just me or have the majority (those registered who actually vote) of voters stopped educating themselves on their candidates and merely become chad punchin' automatons?

"Vote early, Vote often" TPM

"Vote early, Vote often"

TPM has a good cross-section of election predictions.

This evening's pundit war should be an interesting display of restraint.

A few points for the news agencies to ponder.
1. Florida resides in two time zones as does Tennessee and Kentucky. Know your geography.
2. Some states allow voting polling locations to stay open until 8pm.
3. Exit polls don't indicate anything other than some ninny was willing to talk to you when accosted.
4. The supreme court's busy right now, don't overload their docket.
5. Not all persons polled, tell the truth.
