Where is Senator Reid?

Filed under: | Axis of Donks

Hmmm…haven’t heard much from Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) regarding Tom DeLay’s recent indictment. I wonder if he has other concerns.
Yep, looks like there could be a small problem….

Spreading the Curse?

Filed under: | Sports

Since the end of the baseball season is upon us…
In opening a franchise in Washington, DC, I hope the intent of the owners of the Billy Goat Tavern (“No fries! Cheeps! No Pepsi! Coke!”) is not to afflict other cities with the Curse of the Billy Goat. The attitude of the owning family doesn’t seem to bear that out:

“They say nobody in Washington D.C. is from Washington D.C.,” Bill Sianis said. Besides, he said, there are a lot of people from Illinois who work on Capitol Hill and have been asking when the Billy Goat was coming to town.
“They all want something that feels like home,” he said.

Good. Maybe when the Cubs finally do win that World Series, they can share the joy all Cubs Fans will revel in with their fellow baseball brethren!

Called Out

Filed under: | Personal

So I’ve been called out. Very well. Here is where I stand.
I am a Christian. I am an American. I am straight. I am a Republican. I am a conservative. I am all those things. Does this mean because I am those things, I hate gays and lesbians and will attack their way of life? Absolutely not!
It is not for me to make the final call. That is between each of you and God. Does it mean that I will not make small conversations about life or whatever because of how my personal beliefs have shaped who I am? Absolutely not!
I work at a place where each individual’s skills and talents are paramount in furthering the accomplishments of the organization. I do not care if a person is black, white, male or female, straight or gay, as long as they can contribute to the team effort, that is what counts.
Whatever rights the GLBT community have won have come by changing public opinion, one person at a time, and that is how those who had to fight for civil rights did it forty years ago. It followed the bellweather decisions of Brown v. Board of Education, and so it must follow with Lawrence v. Texas.
But all those battles which were fought then, and are being fought now, pale in comparison to the darkness which we finally woke up to on 9/11. Christianity is NOT the enemy. Republicans are NOT the enemy. Democrats are NOT the enemy. Straight people are NOT the enemy. Gays and lesbians are NOT the enemy.
The enemy is that group of people who insist on spreading their religion by force around the world. They are the Islamofascists. They are even more dangerous than the Nazis and Communists were during World War II and the Cold War. To the Islamofascists, there is no such thing as free will. There is only submission. They want to take away the one thing God gave each and every one of us and I will not stand for that!
I was born at Gitmo. I lived overseas for five years; three in Naples, Italy, and two in Asmara, Ethiopia (now the capital of Eritrea). I saw for myself the despondent conditions which cause people to make choices which are terrible and extreme. It made me very grateful I was born an American.
So when 9/11 happened, I resolved right then and there to fight that fight against the Islamofascists FOR all of us. I don’t care who you are, where you come from, or whatever path your life has followed. I will use the talents God gave me, my writing and my speaking, to fight that darkness which is Islamofascism.
That is where I stand.

Texas-Sized Bogus Indictment

Filed under: | BS Patrol

So Representative Thomas DeLay (R-TX), the House Majority Leader, has been accused of campaign finance conspiracy, and has stepped down to fight the charges…well guess what! The Democrats did the same thing. And it is LEGAL! From Stephen Spruiell’s Media Blog on NRO:

The indictment centers around a money swap that took place between the Texans for a Republican Majority PAC (TRMPAC), to which DeLay has ties, and the Republican National State Elections Committee (RNSEC). TRMPAC sent $190,000 to RNSEC, and RNSEC then sent the same total amount in seven checks ranging from $20,000 to $40,000 to Texas House candidates in 2002. Travis County DA Ronnie Earle, a Democrat, calls this money laundering, because the money that TRMPAC sent to RNSEC came from corporations, which are barred from contributing to campaigns in Texas.
What you won’t hear in the press is that A) This is a perfectly legal move, and B) the Democrats did the exact same thing. An Institute on Money in State Politics study reveals that on Oct. 31, 2002, the Texas Democratic Party did the same thing when it sent $75,000 to the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and received $75,000 back from the DNC the very same day.

DA Ronnie Earle has investigated other politicians on both sides of the aisle. He indicted Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson in 1994 for records tampering and official misconduct, but Earle did not pursue the case and dropped the charges before trial. Once it’s known that the Dems also “laundered” their campaign finances like the Republicans, I envision charges against DeLay to be dropped as well.

McCain Wastes Taxpayer Dollars

Filed under: | BS Patrol

Thank you, Senator John McCain (RINO-AZ) for meeting with Cindy Sheehan and wasting my Tax Dollars! First, Senator McCain obviously didn’t verify that whoever Ms. Sheehan said was an Arizona constituent, really lived there. They say things that can’t be altered by the other, and the so-called “peace mom” stomps her feet afterwards and says:

“He is a warmonger, and I’m not. I believe this war is not keeping America safer.”

Of course you’re not a warmonger…you’re a mediawhore-monger! You are driven by nothing but anger and hatred. Keep going and you won’t only have to leave your committed appearances early on a regular basis…you’ll end up in the damn loony bin!

I Refuse to Waste My Time…

Filed under: | Bread and Circuses

...on this show. Jay Tea over at Wizbang sums up what I had been thinking since the news on the radio was so prevalent last night!
Another TV show which depicts Republicans as scheming evil b*st*rds. Since the producers of this show were hell-bound to portray the GOP as such, at least they picked the right guy.
And to invade Nigeria to preserve the right of one woman to have sex outside of marriage? What a bunch of total bulls**t!

Still No Reagan $10 Bill

Filed under: | News

Looks like Alexander Hamilton will remain on the new $10 bill. But at least it’s becoming more colorful to combat counterfeiting. The next scheduled currency redesign will be the $100 bill in 2007.
I am a little disappointed, but not overly so. One day I’d still like to see Ronald Reagan on some of our currency.


INCOMING! Another visitor to this site (with whom I debate from time to time on another board) wrote me back about a little “experience” he had with the newer $20 bill:

Hey Macker, I clicked on your website and read about the “no Reagan on the $10” etc.  I am glad the gov’t is doing more to make currency more difficult to counterfeit, but I must say, I saw a really, really, good fake $20 the other day.  To look at it, there was really no way to tell it wasn’t the real thing.  Little gold 20’s on the back, all the colors good.  Weight of the paper felt right and everything.  I was working at my cousin’s store when the police chief came in and tossed me 2 20’s.  Now, this guy and I have known each other for years, and I thought he wanted lottery tickets.  But, he just wanted to share with me and my cousin that there were some fakes going around.  The only thing missing was the “metal” strip in it.
I made sure to check for that strip, and mark each 20 I rec’d the rest of the day with that yellow pen thing.
*shrugs*  Just thought I’d share that.

They’re certainly getting better and better at it, aren’t they! Thanks Will!

Debut on Audio Drama

Filed under: | Personal

Allow me to preface this by thanking Cox and Forkum for providing the opportunity to rekindle an interest I’ve had for a long, long time. Thanks John and Allen!
The audio drama episode I read for a few weeks ago has been released to the public! Go Ye and check it out. The Macker Commands It!
Oh yes…I play the part of “The Guard.” I so enjoyed doing this, I hope to be doing more of it as time progresses. It’s so nice to have a life again!

Guess Who Got Arrested?

NO, not me, you can figure it out. But you gotta also wonder what took place first…the arrest, or this:

Not Worth It

Filed under: | News

And now, the Saddam New York Times has walled off its content from all the regular Joe Schmoes on the web, like myself. From the automatically renews each year. Home Delivery subscribers to The New York Times and the International Herald Tribune (at least 3 days delivery) are eligible to get TimesSelect for free as part of their newspaper subscriptions.

So is TimesSelect going to save the online beating the NYT is taking? Not really. Drudge (yes, I’m accessing him again, I’ve got better plugins this time!) has already given them the finger with another link to a Times columnist who’s supposedly protected by TimesSelect, so there is more than one way to skin a cat. I sure ain’t gonna pay the $50/year they want for it. Besides I usually went to them for BS articles, I can go elsewhere for that!

The Real Anti-War Message

Filed under: | Humor

Yesterday, as you know, there were supposedly a bunch of anti-war marches around the country and around the world. The first poster was used to advertise the march in San Diego. The second poster is their REAL message. Click on each to see what they say.
Fortunately, Citizen Smash reports that a number of counter-protesters turned up to thank the real Champions of Freedom: our Armed Forces!

BOB now Chase Field

Filed under: | Sports


Two days ago, the Arizona Diamondbacks revealed the new name of their ballpark, formerly known as Bank One Ballpark, or “The BOB”...it’s now known as Chase Field:

“The new name is great,” said Diamondbacks president Rich Dozer. “Its simplicity helps us maintain the spirit of classic American baseball in one of the most technically advanced, convenient and fan-friendly baseball fields in the country.”

All well and good. I actually like (ahem!) Chase Field, and the D-Backs even helped me recover my interest in baseball. But I bet it irks JPMorgan Chase to no end that they don’t sponsor Major League Baseball, Minor League Baseball, and Little League Baseball all at the same time…that honor goes to Bank of America!

Man, the fact that the Comments Page was not fully rendering was really beginning to bother me, so after discovering a couple of missing /div tags, and a few cut & paste actions, I finally fixed the comments page so that it fully renders. I feel much better now.
