So Much for Honesty

I had to scramble this morning to change a class that I had enrolled in.

I had initially signed up for a beginner's class in German. On the first day, I decided to tell the professor that I had taken German before - in high school - but that was over 19 years ago and I had pretty much forgotten most of it. I thought that being honest was the best policy; I thought wrong.

She told me this morning that I'd have to drop the class and sign up for the next class in the Winter quarter when German 1B is offered. Crap I thought....I should have kept my mouth shut and played dumb.

So much for trying to uphold academic integrity.

Luckily, I found a Physics class that fit into the same time slot and it's not one of those calculus-intensive physics classes that make most people green-in-the-gills. This one is a class on the Solar System and from the one class session I sat in on this morning, it looks like it'll be not only a 'fun' class, but an interesting one too.

So I'm back to my original plan: two engineering courses and a 'gimme' class and considering the amount of crap I have on my plate these days (some of you know what I'm talking about), it'll be enough just to keep up with these classes.

Hinder or Help?

Grim news for Kerry or is this the cavalry coming over the hill??

Jackson Joins Kerry Campaign As Adviser

WASHINGTON - Civil rights activist Jesse Jackson joined the campaign of Sen. John Kerry on Wednesday as a poll showed support for the presidential candidate slipping among black Americans, a critical Democratic constituency.

The Pew Research Center said Tuesday its latest poll showed 73 percent of blacks supporting Kerry compared to 12 percent supporting President Bush. In 2000, Al Gore won 90 percent of the black vote.

Democratic groups have aired campaign ads criticizing Republican efforts to woo black voters.

The Kerry campaign said Jackson, who will serve as a senior adviser, will travel to battleground states to energize Democratic support for Kerry and running mate John Edwards.

Details - Smeetails

Lalalalalalalalalalaa - I'm not hearing you!!!I attempted to have discussion with several non-conservative people in the blogsphere about the 'disenfranchised' voters in Florida during the 2000 election.

In each discussion, I ask "What proof do you have that these voters were genuinely disenfranchised?" and the only source that has been cited has been a lawsuit that was settled OUT OF COURT as the basis for these myths.

Of course, I tried to point out to this individual (who by the way works in a law firm) that when a case is settled 'out of court', neither party is admitting to guilt and no court of law would assume that when one party 'settles' or seeks to settle that they're guilty; they just want to get it over and done with.

This person just told me that 'if I couldn't figure it out then they couldn't help me' - which I took to mean if I conked myself in the head with a ball-peen hammer, then I'd be able to 'connect-the-dots' and see the VRWC in all its beauty.

NOTE: I won't say who this person was cause I don't want to cause them to get ridiculed, but I am displaying this 'arrogance' in substantiating their claim as being typical of left-of-center folks that see boogie-men in all their closets.

I came across something over at National Review Online that (IMHO) smashes the myths of Florida into fine powder.

I realize that some might roll their eyes at the 'legitimacy' of this news organization, but from my experience, NRO - while not admitting to being unbiased - is known for being reputible. I realize that I won't be able to convince anyone that's already convinced, but it helps me get the straight facts about the story - or at least clarifies the situation a bit more to my liking.

Darkness Closes In....

Too tired to blog about anything in particular except for one personal observation:

The Democrat/Liberal students at UCSD are just convinced that President Bush will re-instate the draft.

I was 'tabling' with the College Republicans up at school today and quite a few people approached to ask us if we were going to obey the draft or resist. And everytime this happened, we'd attempt to tell them that there was about a snowball's chance in Hell that:

  1. The Republicans in the House and the Senate wouldn't vote to pass the legislation currently in the docket, and

  2. if for some screwball reason it was passed, that President Bush wouldn't sign it into law.
We also attempted to tell these mis-informed cretins that it was a couple of Democrats that drafted the bills, but they wouldn't hear of it; they'd just get a look of indignation on their faces and walk away yelling 'Anybody But Bush!!'.

Maybe there's something in the water....

We handed out a ton of Bush/Cheney stickers and had a lot of people sign up for the e-mail distribution list. November 3rd will be a very interesting day at school.

Annual Whine

You know UCSD is back in session when the speds at the Ché Cafe start whining about being evicted:

'I was shot like a rabid dog in Bolivia in case you were wondering....'CO-OPS THREATENED WITH OCTOBER 15TH EVICTION

In spring 2004, UCSD Student Affairs personnel claimed UCSD's contract with the co-ops and student governments had expired in 1998, despite that they had previously recognized 2-year renewals of this contract in 1998, 2000, and 2002. They attempted to use the threat of termination to force unwanted modifications on the contract. Some of these modifications would have severely impeded the co-ops' ability to operate. In response to this aggression, the co-ops and their legal counsel called for an informal dispute resolution to address any legitimate concerns in a civil and productive manner.

Over the summer, Student Affairs responded to this request in writing with a threat to terminate students' tenancy in co-op spaces unless a new agreement had been reached by October 15. At the same time, they explicitly refused to negotiate with the co-ops in any way, and indicated that although AS and GSA would be allowed to review the language, their approval would not be required. In short, they intend to disregard the agreement previously negotiated among all parties, and rather than negotiate anew, replace it with terms they alone dictate.

There are times when I drive past the Ché Cafe and think Well, at least they have a place to hang out instead of smelling up the Giesel Library and sometimes I think you know, a parking lot would go there very nicely....

Child Psychology

We were disenfranchised!!!  Waaaaaaahhhhh!!!So....Ter-RAY-zaa said 'I wouldn't be surprised if he appeared in the next month'. Wow - she's psychic. Or more like psycho.

Let's look at this: if the U.S. forces in Afghanistan were to capture Osama bin Laden, then everyone left-of-center would instantly scream 'Ahhh-HAAAA!!' and (falsely) assert that the Bush campaign planned it to get a boost in the polls. Yet if he is not not captured, then those same people would be screaming 'FAILURE!!' much like John Kerry said yesterday.

There is a saying (maybe it's old - I dunno exactly) that's appropriate: they'd bitch if you hung them with a new rope.

IMO the Kerry campaign - and those that just flat-out loathe President Bush in general - act & react to any news much like a spoiled child throwing a temper-tantrum: nothing will get them to shut up and/or be happy.

And do you know what the scary thing is? That in the early hours of Wednesday, November 3rd, when President Bush is declared the winner, that there will be foaming-at-the-mouth and possible riots in some cities because these 'children' can't handle the reality of the election.

Why do I say this?

Cause if for some screwball reason Kerry wins the election, you're not going to see Republicans/Conservatives getting worked up into a frenzy. Yes, they'll be pissed that Bush didn't win but they won't resort to childish tactics to vent their spleens; Dems can almost be counted on to react like spoiled children that are denied their lollipops....

'Hell No'

Yeah Arnold!!

Governor vetoes driver's license bill

'Don't send me any girlie-man bills to sign or I'll CRUSH you!'Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Wednesday vetoed legislation that would have allowed illegal immigrants to apply for California driver's licenses with a terse statement saying the bill did not meet his security concerns.

The Republican governor dispensed with perhaps the most emotionally charged bill on his desk with a four-line veto message.

"One of the most important duties of the governor of a state is to protect its citizens," Schwarzenegger said. "This bill does not adequately address the security concerns that my Department of Homeland Security and I have, and I cannot support it."

The measure, AB 2895 by Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez, was originally introduced as SB 1160 in the Senate by Sen. Gil Cedillo, D-Los Angeles.

Cedillo, who earlier accused the governor of reneging on a promise to sign a driver's license bill, said he was "disappointed, but I'm not discouraged."

"I disagree with the governor, but I'm prepared to engage him in dialogue on the question of security," he said. "The fact of the matter is 2 million immigrants in California will still be driving tomorrow without a license, and we would have preferred that they were tested, licensed and insured. So this issue doesn't go away."

Cedillo has vowed to introduce another license bill when the Legislature convenes in December. Ten states allow illegal immigrants to drive.

"As the governor might say, 'I'll be back,' " Cedillo said, invoking one of the former actor's best-known movie lines.

In a prepared statement, Núñez said Schwarzenegger's veto message "lacks any clarity with regard to what legislative proposal the governor would find acceptable."

"Considering that he gave his word that he would work with the Legislature on an acceptable bill, we are now back to square one," he said.

'Work with the Legislature on an acceptable bill' means that the license given to undocumented aliens illegals is different than those given to California citizens dork.

I wonder.....just what part of ILLEGAL ALIENS don't the Democrats get!?

UCSD Research on the Cutting Edge

Scripps Prepares to Study the Effects of Alcohol on Everything

'Duuude! This is some strong shit!' exclaim Scripps researchers.The Scripps Institute Neuroscience Department, working in conjunction with the UCSD Psychology department, has researched sleeping behavior, coupling habits, drug use, and alcohol consumption. In preparation for this year’s Sun God Festival, the latter two have been singled out for further study by the Scripps Institute. Dr. Erwin Chesterfield, one of the neuroscientists involved with the project, expressed confidence that the experiment was “gonna be fuckin’ sick.”

Chesterfield continued, saying that “the study aims to test the effects of alcohol and marijuana on students, research assistants, researchers, "Frank’s Rottweiler", a Venus fly trap, several endangered species of fish, and just about everything on the second floor of the Institute.”

Certain legal and ethical dilemmas have been raised about the planned study. “People are asking all sorts of questions,” noted Chesterfield, “questions like, ‘Is feeding a Venus fly trap marijuana like cannibalism?’ and ‘Is there actually such a thing as too many pop-tarts?’”

Researchers have been frequenting psychology, cognitive science, linguistics, environmental science and visual arts courses inviting students to fill out waivers that ask such questions as, “Do you drink alcohol? During a typical week, how many drinks do you have?” and “Do you party? Precisely how hard?”

This data, along with students’ contact information, is being used to select a cross section from the UCSD populace to participate in the research. Students are anxiously awaiting invitations to the much anticipated study.

“I’ve heard those research people are fucking crazy,” confessed Muir Sophomore Brian Nielson. “I heard the last time they studied the effects of alcohol they all ended up naked in a hot tub with some random people they picked up in Pacific Beach and this dude Frank.”

“Goddamn I wanna gather data!” added Nielson.

The Institute’s efforts to study the effects of alcohol have met with more political resistance than their cannabis research. However, the modest school funding they began with—a $7,100 Graduate Student Association bar tab at Porter’s Pub—soon blossomed into an endowment providing enough money for a fully stocked laboratory, plush offices, and Internet-equipped beer helmets.

Although the funding for the project has drastically increased, “it’s still not enough,” commented GSA President Eric Frechette. “That’s why we passed a referendum to raise student fees. It is important research and we can’t go doing it with Popov and Pabst.”

Marty wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table.

He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. Marty looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotless, clean. So is the rest of the house.

He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table.

Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go shopping. Love You!
So he goes to the kitchen and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating.

Marty asks, "Son, what happened last night?"

His son says, "Well, you came home around 3 AM, drunk and delirious. Broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."

Confused, Marty asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?"

His son replies, "Oh, that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you said, "Lady leave me alone! I'm married!"

Self-induced hangover -- $100.00
Broken furniture -- $2,000.00
Breakfast -- $10.00
Saying The Right Thing While Drunk -- PRICELESS

Myths Debunked, Part Deux

Although this is a re-print of an article from the Dallas Morning News, it does (at least to me) 'fill in some of the blanks' about all of the foaming-at-the-mouth questions concerning President Bush's service in the Texas Air National Guard.

Go give it a read.

You'll either have your thinking confirmed or you'll be thrown into the Pit of Dispair™ over the agony of having what you thought was the 'truth' being smashed to little pieces.

Some people really surprise me in their vitriol. From the *cough* 'prose' that passes for thought from Daily Kos:

LGF is for mentally-ill sadists who live in the basement of Mom's house in the suburbs and own porn videos that feature the (simulated, hopefully) mutilation of women. It's for teenaged guys who read Soldier of Fortune and fantasize about spending their summers "slithering around on their bellies in Survivalist camps in Idaho." It's for people who wished the Klan was still around and influential, for people who used to like David Duke but hate him now that he's sympathetic to Palestine, for people who thought the Columbine massacre was "a good thing that they wish they had been in on."

In short: LGF is sicko-ville deluxe. And irredeemably so. This is Stormfront stuff.

The LGF guys are the kind of guys who would think an AK-47 is the only answer to girls like "Carrie" from "Sex and the City."

Think I'm exaggerating? Check the comments on LGF sometime and view the splendor of people eaten up from the inside by total hate. This is Aryan Nations material.

We tend to think of the Bush Administration as being right-wing, but even they would recognize LGF for the steaming pile of crap it is and not go anywhere near it, simply for fear of being fouled by the odor and moral disease emanating from it.

Huh...sounds like someone needs to check the dosage of their medication....

Bloggers 1, Rather 0

Dan Rather has issued a statement concerning the Killian Memos (via Drudge Report):

Last week, amid increasing questions about the authenticity of documents used in support of a 60 MINUTES WEDNESDAY story about President Bush's time in the Texas Air National Guard, CBS News vowed to re-examine the documents in question—and their source—vigorously. And we promised that we would let the American public know what this examination turned up, whatever the outcome.

Now, after extensive additional interviews, I no longer have the confidence in these documents that would allow us to continue vouching for them journalistically. I find we have been misled on the key question of how our source for the documents came into possession of these papers. That, combined with some of the questions that have been raised in public and in the press, leads me to a point where—if I knew then what I know now—I would not have gone ahead with the story as it was aired, and I certainly would not have used the documents in question.

But we did use the documents. We made a mistake in judgment, and for that I am sorry. It was an error that was made, however, in good faith and in the spirit of trying to carry on a CBS News tradition of investigative reporting without fear or favoritism.

Please know that nothing is more important to us than people's trust in our ability and our commitment to report fairly and truthfully.

Actually, nothing is more important that you appearing to eat your hat to regain some of your lost viewers.

In related news, Bill Burkett is identified as the source of the bogus memos:

Rather this weekend interviewed Bill Burkett, a retired Texas National Guard officials who has been mentioned as a possible source for the documents. His interview will be on "CBS Evening News" on Monday.

CBS said Burkett acknowledged he provided the documents and said he deliberately misled a CBS producer, giving her a false account of their origin to protect a promise of confidentiality to a source.

Does the trail end here with Burkett?

We'll have to wait and see what pops up on the scope....

Filling in the Blanks

The 9/11 Commission ReportMy wife was shopping at CostCo and picked me up a copy of the 9/11 Commisssion Report. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it by the end of this week as the fall quarter at UCSD begins.

So far there's nothing new, but it is nice to read about some of the details that are constantly glossed over by the media. You know, the kind of detail that totally debunks some of the talking points floating around at MoveOn.org like:


"The CIA funded Bin Laden and trained him. It's the CIA's fault for helping Bin Laden!"


Page 56
"But Bin Ladin and his comrades had their own sources of support and training, and they received little or no assistance from the United States23"

23. In his memoir, Ayman al Zawahiri contemptuously rejects the claim tha the Arab mujahideen were financed (even "one penny") or trained by the United States.

I doubt that reading the 9/11 Commission Report will shead any new light on what I know of the attacks three years ago, but it will clarify some of the more....potent BS that keeps getting recycled by the foaming-at-the-mouth demographic of American society.

More myth debunking as I come across it later.

High Standard

Michelle Malkin has a new column out where she takes Dan (What's the frequency?) Rather and CBS to task:

Michelle MalkinThe death cry of snob journalism

Dan Rather, Professional Journalist, and CBS News, Professional News Network, want us to keep believing they are the ordained purveyors of truth. They are the mature and responsible mavens of media ethics. They are the information gatekeepers with unparalleled judgment, dedicated to the high principles of The Craft of Journalism, unwavering in their crusade for the public interest.

As the saying goes in the blogosphere: Bwah-hah-hah.

I know I said I wouldn't be posting anything else about the Killian memos, but I liked what Michelle said about the standards to which CBS has sunk and the standards by which bloggers (such as myself) try to attain: the truth and the facts cause each of us has multiple critics to ping on bad information.

Moral Decay of Film

Jessica Simpson

Simpson Puts Up Her 'Dukes' for First Feature Role

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Pop star Jessica Simpson has been cast as Daisy Duke in the big-screen remake of "The Dukes of Hazzard," a project that essentially marks her feature film debut.

Seann William Scott and Johnny Knoxville already had been cast as Bo and Luke Duke, respectively, in the Warner Bros. project. Jay Chandrasekhar is directing. A start date has not yet been set.

I'm all kinds of glad for Jessica Simpson, but have we as a society decayed into such stagnation that we have to resurrect dead shows for new film ideas?

At the rate Hollywood is going, The A-Team will premeire sometime around Summer 2008 and Gary Coleman will have buffed up enough to play Mr. T.

[Wait - didn't Governor Schwarzenegger just sign a law that outlaws messing around with the dead?]

Is that a Train....?

Unless there's something really interesting that pops up soon, I think I am done with the CBS/Killian memo fiasco - or as many are calling it: Fraudgate™ or Memogate™.

It's interesting to watch this unfold - especially since I know that modern news reporting will be changed as a result of all of the blogsphere letting loose on CBS News and Dan Rather.

But it's like watching an boa constrictor swallow a rabbit - disgusting when thought of yet many watch it anyway. But after the initial euphoria has worn off you start thinking 'Get on with it darnit - I got stuff to do'.

I'll keep one eye on it and I might post something about the (hopefully) final outcome, but the play-by-play I'll leave to the heavy-hitter bloggers like LGF, Allah, or Wizbang. Trying to keep up with the constantly unfolding of events is starting to evolve into the 'light at the end of the tunnel' resolving into an on-coming freight train.

Yeah....What She Said

Michelle at A Small Victory appears to have summerized all of this Killian memo crap:

Had Rather stood up and feigned shock that the memos might be false, and then hired another expert or at least addressed the possibility that he and CBS might have been duped, we would not be sitting here talking about typesetting. But Rather has been outed, so to speak, as a braying, defensive, partisan hack who has no more integrity than Jayson Blair. Perhaps he should be shaking his fist at his source - or himself - instead of bloggers.

Information Overload

There's just too much information breaking out on the web about the Killian memos on President Bush's service in the Texas ANG. So much that I'm starting to get cross-eyed from it.

A Question to Ponder

From The Politburo Diktat:

Wizbang asks an interesting question.
So does Spacetown.

Who is "a Democratic Party strategist known as a master of the black art of "oppo," or opposition research, used to discredit detractors?"

Who is "such a shrewd practitioner of what one admiring strategist called 'the political black arts' that lately, when a negative story appears, rivals point to him?"

Whose "fingerprints were all over the revelation of GW Bush’s DUI arrest on election-eve?"

Who is now working for Michael Moore?

Ya know, this wouldn't surprise me a bit....

It would seem that Mikey Moore is banking on this 'damning information' to sway many, many voters:

Later today (Wed.), the Boston Globe, the A.P. and Dan Rather all present new and damning information about how George W. Bush got moved to the front of the line to get in the Texas Air National Guard, and how he then went AWOL. I am putting every ounce of trust I have in my fellow Americans that a majority of them get this, get the injustice of it all, and get the sad, sick twisted irony of how it relates very, very much to our precious Election 2004.

Me personally - I would have zipped my mouth shut and let the public 'get it' on their own if I were gunning to get President Bush out of office in case they were discovered to be fakes. But then again, Moore is known for calling lots of attention to himself....to putting the spotlight on his 'keen intellect'.

Now, if you were in the 'know' on possible 'smoking gun' memos and wanted to make sure that everyone knew about them, would you quietly slip them to Dan Rather or would you trumpet the fact that you're the one nailing Bush's coffin shut and do a hideous fat-man dance?

Like I said - it wouldn't surprise me....

As my good friend Stevie would sometimes say:


Now, the producer says, there is growing concern inside the building on 57th Street that they may have been suckered by the Kerry campaign.

If this gets any bigger like it has in the last 24 hours, someone is gonna get a serious ass kicking over at Kerry HQ.

You know those memos that just surfaced from President Bush's former commanding officer? The ones that 'show' Lt. Bush was a problem? They're probably forgeries.

The Fifth One

The Fifth Horseman of the ApocalypseI only briefly skimmed over them, but the 16 different propositions on the November 2004 ballot are sure to bring out just the very best in people.

I'll have to read them over and then read them over once more to get an idea of where I stand on some of the more virulent ones.

Short snap-judgment: Anything the ACLU objects to must be a good thing.

When I first settled here in California, I thought that initiatives and propositions were a good thing - a way to enable the people to directly have their will manifested in public law. It's called 'direct democracy' and it seemed to be the way to step on the necks of those in Sacramento in order to get stuff done.

But with each new election cycle and each new batch of initiatives & propositions that appear to be written by Charles Manson on a good day, I'm beginning to think that the Fifth Horseman of the Apocalypse will be the Secretary of State of California weilding a fistful of petitions.

Page Turner

American Soldier by Gen. Tommy Franks

A present from my wife for finishing up summer school - all three classes in 10 weeks.

I highly recommend this book. Even though I'm not finished with it yet (I'm up to the part where Franks is negotiating death ray technology from the aliens so Bush can conquer the planet), this book is very hard to put down.

From the amount I've read, General Franks is my kind of guy - no BS and he strives to get the tasks given to him done. Excellent book!

Chechen Whimps

I haven't posted anything about this lastest example of the Religion of Peace™ and its ambassadors taking Russian children hostage and killing a couple hundred of them.

Everytime I see children killed like this I always wonder Just when is enough going to be enough? When will people realize that the Religion of Peace™ isn't what they talking themselves up to be, especially when you think about all the insance cries of 'genocide' that Western militaries are accused of that proport the purposeful killing of children?

Taking hundreds of children hostage all to get your stinking little demands met doesn't rate high in God's book if I could be so bold. And it doesn't make much of an argument about how 'brave' you are......whimps.

These Chechen terrorists are now officially on my "I Don't Give A Flying F**k What You're Fighting For Cause It Is A Load Of Crap" list.

And the screams of condemnation coming from the Islamic Street - well, it's a deafening silence. But I'm an not surprised.....not one bit.

These Chechen *cough* rebels terrorists pieces of sh*t deserve some reserved seats on the 'Brain Trust Express' spacecraft that will be shot into deep, deep space.....never to be heard from again.

Two Peas in a Pod

Thinking that John Edwards as Vice President would be a good thing? Think that only Kerry is capable of talking out one side of his face and blabbing something different out the other? Think again:

Excused Absence?

As much as I wanted to see it - and I specifically AFFIRMED my ownership of the television with the rest of the household beforehand - I didn't watch President Bush speaking at the RNC.

As my inverse Irish luck would dictate, I was recovering from minor surgery and was zonked out on H-bomb strength medication.

From the quick look at the blogsphere, the reactions were mostly positive.

Something I noted on the sidebar over at Croooow Blog:

I actually plan to vote for John Kerry before I vote against him.
I have a feeling this 'I voted for the $87 billion before I voted against it' will go down in history as the quote that destroyed Kerry's credibility.
