Team America - F*ck Yeah!

The wife rented Team America: World Police and we'll be watching it tonight since everything good on the Sci Fi Channel is in repeat mode.

I saw it when it hit the theaters, but by my wife hasn't seen it. Considering how long I've been married to her, I know she'll be asphyxiating herself laughing.

Coming to San Diego: Border Enforcement


Border vigil planned for California

Minuteman organizer James T. Gilchrist, whose 850 volunteers shut down the flow of illegal aliens along a 23-mile section of Arizona-Mexico border last month, has joined forces with another citizens group to help organize a new border vigil in California -- beginning in August.

The Minuteman Project has reached an agreement with the Friends of the Border Patrol (FBP) to help promote a new "border watch" aimed at assisting U.S. Border Patrol agents in apprehending illegal aliens on the California border near San Diego.

FBP Chairman Andy Ramirez said more than 500 volunteers have signed up to patrol areas of the California-Mexico border in August, including former Border Patrol agents, retired police and military personnel and pilots. He said yesterday that at least 2,000 more applications from volunteers nationwide are still being reviewed.

The California vigil will kick off an effort by the Minuteman Project to link anti-illegal immigration groups nationwide and create a network of civilian volunteers along the nation's borders, said Mr. Gilchrist, who lives in Aliso Viejo, Calif. He said he also intends to target employers in the near future who knowingly hire illegal aliens.

"We did in our first 10 days what the federal government and Congress couldn't do over the past 10 years," Mr. Gilchrist said.

This might be something worth looking into this summer....

Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith

Last 'Star Wars' Opens Amidst Much Fanfare

NEW YORK — It was a Jedi night to end all Jedi knights.

After weeks of intergalactic hype, the much-awaited and last-ever “Star Wars” movie finally opened at the stroke of midnight Thursday. Fanatics responded with zeal.

The most serious “force” enthusiasts took Thursday off work, waited for hours in line even though they already had tickets and eagerly poured into theaters overnight to see what all the fuss was about over George Lucas’ “Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith”

Last night the family and I went to see the midnight screening here in La Jolla. It was jam-packed but I was expecting a crowd.

A most excellent movie although my tail bone went numb from sitting in the front row - it was the best seating available for the three of us.

And although I'm technically alive dispite only getting about four hours of sleep (the movie let out about 2:45 am), I'm not really coherent enough to give any kind of detailed analysis. Dispite the overall 'greatness' of the film, there were a few continuity conflicts that both my wife and I noticed....then again, I'm a geek and will always notice slip-ups in the storyline of a science fiction movie of this magnitude.

Short recommendation: see it.

UPDATE: Here's something to make you wonder about people on both sides of the aisle:

It's Okay - Allah Says It's Cool

Oh - I'm so glad this is now explained in detail:

Tape justifies killing innocent Muslims

BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- A chilling, rambling audio file thought to be from the most-wanted man in Iraq, Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, says religious doctrine justifies the killing of innocent Muslims by insurgents.

The message was posted on several Islamist Web sites Wednesday, the same day a senior U.S. military official said the Jordanian-born leader of al Qaeda in Iraq ordered the recent wave of car bombings.

CNN has been unable to confirm that the voice is that of al-Zarqawi. The tape introduces the speaker as al-Zarqawi, but the speaker does not identify himself.

The voice says in Arabic: "The shedding of Muslim blood ... is allowed in order to avoid the greater evil of disrupting jihad."

The voice says the protection of religion "is more important than protecting lives, honor or wealth."

"God knows that we were careful not to kill Muslims, and we have called off many operations in the past to avoid losses ... but we cannot kill infidels without killing some Muslims. It is unavoidable," he adds.

The speaker defends suicide attacks, saying, "killing of infidels by any method including martyrdom operations has been sanctified by many scholars even if it meant killing innocent Muslims."

"This legality has been agreed upon ... so as not to disrupt jihad," or "holy war," the recording says.

And I bet if this clown - Zarqawi - is caught alive, he's gonna screech like a stuck pig...especially if some Iraqis get to him first.

It's always fun to identify the ends-justifies-the-means arguments - they're most like associated with psychos and those that are still getting their panties in a wad over making Iraqi prisoners wear underwear on their heads.

Say What? Part III

This is the stuff that make people shake their heads when the phrase 'modern nation' is associated with Mexico:

Mexico protests to U.S. in immigration furor

Mexico formally complained to the United States on Monday in an escalating dispute over immigration that led President Vicente Fox to make remarks last week that were widely condemned as racist.

Foreign Minister Luis Ernesto Derbez told reporters that Mexico sent Washington a diplomatic note, a form of official protest between two countries.

Mexico is complaining about tough new U.S. rules on foreigners that make it more difficult for millions of illegal immigrants from Mexico to get driver's licenses.

The controls, passed by Congress as part of a larger legislative package, also allow the extension of a fence on the border between California and Mexico aimed at stopping illegal immigrants.

Differences over immigration came to a head when Fox, frustrated that a proposal by President Bush to ease immigration restrictions had bogged down in Congress, told business people in Texas on Friday that Mexican immigrants "are doing jobs that not even blacks want to do there in the United States."

Yes, we Americans need to stop enforcing our own nation's laws and borders and allow all of those down-trodden illegal immigrants aliens to continue violating the sovereignty of the United States.

Now, we could get nasty and just starting putting tanks on the border. Or we could take a page out of Mexico's immigration policy handbook and deal with illegal aliens like they do on their southern border - physically toss them back into Guatemala.

Naw....that would be mean.

My original suggestion stands: dig a trench and fill it with gasoline...

Nothing of interest to blog about this morning.....

The Newsweek flush-down-the-crapper story is being beat to death all over the place - nothing I can add since I kept Newsweek at arms length for the last few years.

Dreading dialysis today....just plain sucks.

More later if I'm inclined, feeling better from dialysis, or the world explodes because of the giant mutant spiders living under UCSD....

Gagging, not Homphobia

Via John Hawkins at Right Wing News:

Most readers will know that I don't place a metric ton of faith into pollings, but this does give a bit of impact on the wooden stake being pounded into the chest of the 'right-wing homophobia' monster.

While the numbers can be a bit sketchy and possibly the way the questions were asked might be iffy, the overall result is still the same IMO - having 'gay marriage' brought to the fore-front of political discussion results in what I talked about before: throwing this crap in our faces constantly will result in people getting fed up with it.

Gay Marriage!! Gay Marriage!! Gay Marriage!! Gay Marriage!! Gay Marriage!!

Uhhhh.....Hell no!!

This graphic does shed a little light on the topic and the resulting thunder-clap is resounding: many Americans aren't too keen on having gay marriage brought into the American lexicon. You will not that this isn't an indication of gay concentration camps nor is it an indication (unless you're part of the Barking Moonbat Brigade) of directed hate/discontent at homosexuals - it is an indication IMO of a BIG chunk of people just getting tired of having gay-gay-gay-gay-gay-gay-gay-gay-gay-gay jammed down their throats and when they gag being called 'homophobes'.

Action - REaction. So simple that even a first-year physics student can get it.
