Combatting Spammers

Hey, I need a favor: I want everyone to send me all sorts of useless crap to my Hotmail account: madmikey1@hotmail.com. Please, this account ONLY.

I'm trying to get the Inbox soooo full that any spam coming in will be bounced back to the spammers.

I know, it's a useless attempt to stop this 'plague of locusts' in the digital age, but it's worth the attempt. And even though I have another primary e-mail account, I still use this one for some things.

So....send me all sorts of useless crap - the larger the file, the better.

Whining - Presidential Style

Somebody please tell me this is a joke:

Mexico furious at tough US law on migrants

Mexico has reacted furiously to a bill signed into law by the US this week that would fund a border wall and prevent illegal Mexican migrants from obtaining US driving licences.

President Vicente Fox said he would lodge a diplomatic complaint, and was considering complaints to multilateral bodies if Mexico could not unable to resolve the problem bilaterally.

In the US, leaders of the Mexican community threatened to strike to send a message to US employers that they could not survive without cheap Mexican labour.

Santiago Creel, Mexico's interior secretary, said the “Real ID” law was “negative, inconvenient, and obstructionist”.

Is Fox serious? Lodge a complaint on a multilateral basis? Who's he gonna whine to about this? And would anyone really take his complaint to heart? And it's not like 'Real ID' is legislating that we line up illegal immigrants aliens and mow them down with a .50 caliber machine gun - it's just making it harder for illegal immigrants aliens to obtain driver's licenses.

Ummm.....Presidente Fox? Please don't tell us how to legislate in OUR nation. Maybe you should get off your dead ass and possibly address the problem as to why MILLIONS of your citizens are leaving Mexico, huh?

You dipstick....

End of a Family Gathering

Well this is gonna suck.

On one hand, I'm sooooo looking forward to watching the two episodes of Star Trek: Enterprise tonight. The episodes are getting better and better.

On the other hand, I'm dreading it because these two episodes tonight will be the last.

I'm really, really, really hoping that the Sci Fi Channel is quietly working on picking the series up and saving it. While I cannot speak for all Star Trek fans, I'm just wondering if the Sci Fi Channel will make the smart move and pick it up....considering that their main audience is science fiction geeks like myself.

This is just pain gonna suck. Hell, even my kid is bummed about it and she's hardly a sci fi geek (although I'm working on converting her....[/evil laugh]).

It's like someone is taking a part of my family life away. I say this cause Friday nights we all gather around the tube and watch four hours of sci fi shows: Enterprise, Stargate Atlantis, Battlestar Galactica, and then the evening repeat of Stargate SG-1.

It's almost un-American to take away ANY version of Star Trek....and no, there's no blaming President Bush or any Republicans for this - it's the Hollyweird weinies that pulled the plug.

I Don't Think So Tim

Stand down? I don't think so Tim:

Border Patrol told to stand down in Arizona

U.S. Border Patrol agents have been ordered not to arrest illegal aliens along the section of the Arizona border where protesters patrolled last month because an increase in apprehensions there would prove the effectiveness of Minuteman volunteers, The Washington Times has learned.

More than a dozen agents, all of whom asked not to be identified for fear of retribution, said orders relayed by Border Patrol supervisors at the Naco, Ariz., station made it clear that arrests were "not to go up" along the 23-mile section of border that the volunteers monitored to protest illegal immigration.

"It was clear to everyone here what was being said and why," said one veteran agent. "The apprehensions were not to increase after the Minuteman volunteers left. It was as simple as that."

Another agent said the Naco supervisors "were clear in their intention" to keep new arrests to an "absolute minimum" to offset the effect of the Minuteman vigil, adding that patrols along the border have been severely limited.

You know, this sucks. I'm talking about porn-star quality sucking....golf-ball-through-a-garden-hose sucking magnitude.

WTF is it going to take for people in the government to do their job in spite of the *cough* political ramifications? I'm starting to run into crap like this where I work and although I've been able to duck-and-weave to avoid this crap, it really rubs me raw.

I've always thought that working in government was a nice thing - working for the betterment (is that a word?) of the nation and making a living at it at the same time. I'm guessing I'm (gulp!) in the minority here.

And it's sad to say that dispite my best hopes of people 'shining through' and working to better America, that even the Republican leadership and the party are starting to become IMHO no better than the Democrats.

I know I cannot speak for others here in the blogsphere, but this situation - the several lack of doing squat about illegal immigrants aliens - is causing me to take stock of my political standings....and where those standings dictate whom I vote for.

Washington: HINT-HINT-HINT!!

Does this mean I'm becoming a stark-raving mad moonbat?? Aw fu*k no - it just means that I'm attempting to send a CLEAR MESSAGE to the GOP and it's players: get your shit wired and fix this now!

Comments Fixed

Good news - I obtained the 'tweak' necessary for people to not have to constantly re-fill in their information while leaving a comment.

I've tested it and it appears to work....at least, it works for me.

Lemme know if there are any problem with this upgrade/fix.

40 Minutes

40 minutes.

That's all it took to rub Pablo's *patooey* nose in the crap he's created:

Military judge convicts sailor who refused to deploy

SAN DIEGO - A military judge today convicted a Navy sailor of one count for missing his ship's movement when he refused to board the USS Bonhomme Richard as it deployed to the Persian Gulf in December.

The judge, Lieutenant Commander Bob Klant deliberated about 40 minutes before finding Petty Officer Third Class Pablo Paredes guilty of the charge. He dismissed a second count of unauthorized absence, ruling the charge was duplicative.

Paredes stood at attention as the judge read the sentence, following the day's court-martial proceeding. The trial is now in the sentencing phase.

Paredes, a 23-year-old from the New York City borough of the Bronx, could receive a year in jail, a forfeiture of pay, reduction in rank and a bad-conduct discharge.

Pity that the judge dismissed the second change - Unauthorized Absence - but at least the convicion was swift.

Pablo *patooey* will now face the sentencing phase of the court martial and the time in the brig followed by the inability to get a job outside of Burger King or the *cough* anti-war movement where he might continue to be a whiny-ass punk...

UPDATE: I was talking with the wife about this last night and she pretty much suggested exactly what Gordon said in comments:

Send him non-rated to the Carrier, stripped of all rank and clearances, most of his pay, and put him on the CHT Team.
And while I've been a big proponant of this punk getting his head squished by the Navy, but this would be infinitely better: make him suffer on the boat....

UPDATE: Pablo *patooey* was reduced in rank to E-1 and was sentenced to three months hard labor.

Pitiful, but at least he got something.....selfish piece of sh!t.

Insults with Care in Them

Best drop-dead Hiroshima insult line from a recent movie - this case 'Blade: Trinity'

Hannibal King (Ryan Reynolds), who is a former vampire is captured by vampires from his old 'clan' and is confronted by his former mentor Danica Talos (Parker Posey).

Danica threatens to re-make him a vampire and leave a little firl in the room with him until he succumbs to the thirst for blood - obviously a ploy to get him to reveal information about his friends.

His most excellent retort that I've heard in a long time delivered in a thundering voice that conveys metric tons of contempt: 'You cock juggling thunder-cunt!'

I almost coughed up a lung cause I was laughing so hard....

Busting a Gut Here

Drop-dead funny-ass comment of the day:

At least he wasn't forced to help tsunami victims. You know... for the oil.
....talking about Pablo *patooey* Paredes and his absence from USS Bonhomme Richard.

Almost got kicked out of the library cause I was laughing my ass off.....

Nobody's Home Dumbass

I'm sitting here in the Sun God Lounge at school, reading the news and blogs in my links section and I start to here a cell phone ring.

Like practically everyone on the planet, I stop what I'm doing for a second and reach for my cell on my belt and as soon as I reach it, I realize that it's not my phone.

Okay - not mine.....who's is it?

It's sitting in a backpack about 15 feet from me at another computer station here in the lounge.




After about the 2oth ring, I'm wondering if the owner will suddently rush up to answer it.

Oh hell no - they're no where in sight.




The freakin phone rings constantly for about 2 minutes and I'm wondering does the caller know that there's no one home??

Apparently the caller is a retard and is convinced that their call will draw their intended recipient from anywhere in the world.

Can people really be that stupid to think that if their call isn't picked up in three to five rings that letting it continue for THREE MINUTES will make any difference!?

It's a freakin miracle that humans survived being eaten by dinosaurs.....

Guide to Blogging

John Hawkins at Right Wing News has always been my guide in the do's and dont's of blogging. He has updated his infamous guide to new bloggers and here a portion of that guide:

25 Pieces Of Advice For Bloggers
  1. It's tempting -- even for me -- to get frustrated when some of the bigger bloggers don't link. But, don't let it get to you. Anybody with a big blog is busy and it's likely not personal if they don't link you.
  2. Keep in mind that even if you get a link from a big website, the overwhelming majority of those readers won't be back. So although there are exceptions, don't expect to make it big off of 1 or 2 posts.
  3. If you're going to be putting up multiple posts and then not posting for a while, put the best post on top. The number of readers drops significantly the further they have to go down the page.
  4. On the week-ends, expect your traffic to drop by roughly 40% whether you post or not.
  5. If you're going to send a promotional email out to other bloggers, make sure it's something worth promoting and try to keep it down to once or twice per week if possible. Send too many emails or promote posts of low quality and other bloggers will tune you out.
  6. Find ways to link to other blogs -- a lot. It's flattering to the blogger being linked and it may draw their attention to what you're writing. Of course, that means they may link you back.
And after looking at his new guide, I can say that almost most of these ideas are ones that I already follow - especially the 'dedication to posting', i.e., I post (or try to anyways) almost everyday.

And I'm hoping that John will follow-through on Point #1 and acknowledge my presence in the blogsphere....along with Michelle Malkin.[/kidding]

VE-Day 60 Years Later

There are lots of other bloggers - bigger, better, and with more daily readers - that have talked about the 60th anniversary of the end of combat operations in Europe at the end of World War II and they've done a better job than I probably could.

My blurb on this anniversary: we kicked their ass and occupied their land to rebuild it since we kick the living crap out of Germany. We came, we saw, we kicked ass.


And now....there's a greater Europe - now called the European Union - that thinks the United States is out to colonize the world with our 'aggression' et al...that is if you believe the *cough* MSM and what European polls indicate about the eurotrash says.

Damn.....do you we have to kick their asses again to show that we're not looking to expand the 'sphere of influence' in the name of protecting our nation?

Sure as hell seems like it at times....you'd think that they'd try to remember history - especially considering that one nation in particular started TWO world wars in the 20th century and it was the U.S. that came in to make it all better - and at least be semi-grateful about it.

Well, it's a nice thought, huh?
