I don’t get it.
When the United States went off the gold standard in 1933, they ordered the destruction of all existing Double Eagle coins. Some survived…and it seems the government is going after them with a vengeance.
Is there anyone who’s a coin collector who can explain to me why the government would want to up and seize a set of these coins without just compensation…72 years after the fact?
In my book there are only two things which call for no statute of limitations: murder and crimes against Humanity. This doesn’t fall into either of those, so I don’t get it.

Fortunately, I’m not talking about my ex-wife here….
SITUATION: You are a member of a grieving family, at a funeral for a male member who was killed in Iraq. An uninvited guest shows up. It is the Lieutanant Governor, she sits down next to you and hands you her business card, and whispers “I want you to know that our government is against this war.”
What do you do?
Well I’d be damned FURIOUS for starters! Now, if this broad were Lieutenant Governor of MY state, I’d be clamoring for her resignation! But since she isn’t I’ll leave that to the People in Pennsylvania to handle this. Better yet, I issue this call to my friends in PA: GET RID OF THIS A**HOLE AND HER BOSS TO BOOT!
It won’t matter to me one damn bit even though the Governor has issued a written apology to this family! This crass b*tch had no right whatsoever to crash this ceremony of final rest to push her anti-war “McChimpy BusHitler kills our boys so Cheney and Halliburton can reap the profits” agenda!
Oh, and I did I mention that both of them are DemocRATS!

“Ebonics iz uh different language, it’snot slang as many believe. Fo’ many o’ deez students Ebonics iz they language, an’ it should be considered uh foreign language. These students should be taught like other students who speak uh foreign language. Ya’ dig?... There iz blacks who do not agree wiff me. They say dat negroid students iz lazy an’ dat dey need ta learn ta jive. What the f**k sup now?”
BULLS**T! That is pure plain laziness on the part of both the parents and the educators involved! As Vilmar (Thanks for the Hat Tip!) points out, there are black people in other countries who speak the local language correctly with no grammatical errors. The best example I can think of is British boxer Lennox Lewis. They don’t need any of this Ebonics bulls**t. When I was young and lived overseas in Italy, I had to learn some Italian to communicate with the Italian kids…especially if I played soccer with them.
So why the hell can’t black students learn ENGLISH for a change? They’ll be better citizens and get a lot farther ahead in the working world too! It also brings up the “multicultural patchwork” vs. “melting pot” debate, and let me tell those who doubt me where I stand: English should be the Official Language of the United States! Go to USEnglish to find out how!

The Senate finally gets up off its collective ass AFTER FOUR YEARS OF BS FILIBUSTERING by the Democrats, and confirms Judge Priscilla Owen to the Federal bench. The vote was 56-43, with Sen. Lincoln Chafee (RINO-RI) voting against her.
On the side of the Democrats voting FOR Judge Owen was (shock of shocks!) Sen. Robert “Sheets” Byrd (D-WV…and I say “Sheets” not because he was a former Kleagle for the KKK, but because the way he debates on the Senate floor he’s four sheets to the wind!) and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA).
Next up: John Bolton for UN Ambassador. That should be a doozy!

So much for the Constitutional Option. I see this at work and I get pretty worked up, thank goodness I waited till I got home to blog on this. Seven Republicans and seven Democrats sign a “compromise” agreement for avoiding a filibuster fight. Lo and Behold! Who’s the guy Fox puts on the front page? Yep, Sen. John McCain (RINO-AZ)!
Here’s the deal:
1) Judges Priscilla Owen, Janice Rogers Brown, and William Pryor get their up-or-down votes.
2) Judges Henry Saad and William Myers are the sacrificial lambs.
3) Future judicial nominees will be filibustered “under extraordinary circumstances.”
Do you see the BS already! Rehnquist may step down from SCOTUS next month after their term is up, and then all bets are off! The President could nominate Justice Scalia to be Chief Justice, BAM! The Dems can filibuster Scalia! They will undoubtedly filibuster whoever the President chooses to fill Scalia’s seat, and also the seat of whichever Justice retires next (probably Justice O’Connor).
As far as I’m concerned, Sen. Frist has no spine! This pisses me off! Just watch what happens come summertime.

Looks like a large group of Canadian scientists have concluded that the Kyoto Protocol is a bunch of BS emanating from the mouths AND rectums of the United Nations. They wanted to put a privately-funded, completed 27-minute documentary onto Canadian television, but were told no.
I see a simple solution already: PUT IT ON THE INTERNET! There are lots of Bloggers out there outside of Canada’s borders who are more than willing to accomodate you and to direct everyone who wants to watch it to the sites which host the documentary.
Hey, it worked with the Gomery/Liberal Party scandal over at Captain’s Quarters! Why not this too?

Picture this: Your middle school kids are reciting the Pledge of Allegiance when all of a sudden, the voice on the PA says instead ”...one Nation under your belief system....”
Poor Vincent Pulciani tells his mother: “I just stood there, Mom. I didn’t even know what to do. We all just stood there and didn’t even finish it.”
Shortly afterward, the phones at Everitt Middle School in Wheat Ridge, CO rang off the hook to ream Margo Lucero, the guidance counselor who changed the words to the Pledge. The principal apologized and sent a letter home with the students.
I tell you…no, wait, you already know, the left continues to assault our way of life. We must continue to stand up and put a stop to this BS.

So now, the wise powers that be at Sesame Workshop have decreed that Cookie Monster can only eat Cookies SOMETIMES.
WTF! This is yet another sign of political correctness run amok. Changing Cookie Monster’s reason for being (I won’t bother using the French phrase here, sorry!) is as bad as telling Swedish Chef he has to cook other stuff besides swedish meatballs.
Besides I don’t know what’s worse: this, or Ving Rhames playing Kojak. Don’t get me wrong, I like Ving Rhames as an actor (he’s quite funny sometimes, especially when he was doing the Radio Shack commercials)...but Kojak was Greek through and through. Who knows where it will end?

I kid you not. I wish I were. Some new sculpture in Millennium Park in The People’s Socialist City-State of Chicago is apparently copyrighted to the point where regular people can’t even take a simple photograph of “The Bean.”
This is Total BS and it will give me an excuse to go photograph the damn thing next time I ever set foot in that city! Mayor Daley has gone off his rocker!

Vice President Cheney represented the United States at an official commemoration of the 60th Anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz (see here)...and yet all the MSM has to bitch about is the fact that the Vice President has to DRESS DOWN for the occasion due to this health and as a result, he ”...looked like an awkward child amid the well-dressed adults.”
Yes, people who have heart conditions and pacemakers, like the Vice President, can’t take risks in cold weather! I swear, these liberals who run the print and television media actually want ill things to happen to either the President, the Vice President, members of the Cabinet, whatever...or to just DIE.
STFU YOU BASTARDS!
The National Taxpayer Union, in its report on members of Congress who spent too much time outside their duties, found Senator John F. Kerry was overpaid $90,932.68 because he was too busy campaigning for President to bother to vote on his constituents’ behalf! His running mate, former Senator John Edwards, was overpaid $63,543.16 for the same reason.
Whether these two guys (who head the list of 25 Democrats and Republicans) pay it back is up to them. Perhaps WE THE PEOPLE should DEMAND they do so! The NTU is most certainly calling for them to do just that.

“Us black people are dying more than any other people in this planet,” says Nobel Peace Prize winner Kenyan ecologist Wangari Maatha, a Kenyan ecologist. She says AIDS was deliberately created by the West as a biological warfare agent…what a bunch of bulls**t. Anyone who pays attention will know that is another lie created and advanced by the SOVIETS during the Reagan years.
And in case you’re wondering where the story is from….drum roll please…it’s from AFP…THE FRENCH!

He’s done. After this little debacle about CBS airing purported documents alleging President Bush’s avoidance of a mandatory physical exam, and with the blogosphere acting quickly to prove its falsehood, Dan Rather has the ‘nads to still go ON THE AIR and say they’re authentic.
Yeah right. And my name is Vladimir Putin! What REALLY pisses me off is that CBS attacks the reputation of a dead man who cannot defend himself!
In my opinion, Dan Rather should instead go on the air and issue his final newscast with his TRUE FACE. If this forgery is attached in any way, manner, shape or form to the Kerry campaign and the Clintonistas who have just taken it over, that too will be done!

Three days ago, the Governor of New Jersey, James E. McGreevey, who just happens to be a Democrat, announces his resignation and outs himself as a “gay American.” Smell the Rat yet? OK, let me help here. He’s not gay, he’s BISEXUAL, after all, he’s fathered at least 2 kids with 2 different women!
Here’s another Rat: McGreevey’s resignation is effective November 15th so that the Democrats avoid a gubernatorial special election and the seat remains in their hands until January 2006. The people of New Jersey are denied once again the choice to make that decision themselves.
And the third Rat: McGreevey meets this Israeli guy, Golan Cipel, in 2001 while on a trip to Israel, he invites him here, makes him the NJ state director of homeland security, but he can’t take the job ‘cause he couldn’t get federal security clearance due to his status as a Foreign National, so he gives him another state job anyway! This takes the entire state of New Jersey and puts it at risk due to these dalliances by their governor!
Some time during that interim McGreevey ends up having an affair with Cipel; now Cipel threatened to sue McGreevey for sexual harassment and demanded (get this) $50 MILLION as to keep quiet! BULLS**T! This isn’t sexual harassment…it’s EXTORTION.
Is this what the New Jersey Electorate bargained for? Their state has become a laughingstock of corruption. They should demand McGreevey step down NOW. At least John G. Rowland (who is a Republican) did the honorable thing and resigned a lot faster when he faced impeachment over corruption in Connecticut.

Instead of ranting on the Vice President’s uttering of The F Word to Senator
Depends Patrick Leahy (D-VT), let me instead focus on an issue dear to the hearts of Americans: gas prices. In a recent interview with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Cheney describes a problem with the nation’s supply:
“We’ve got — I talked to a — a CEO of a major oil company the other day. He has to produce something like 51 different grades of gasoline for the U.S. market because of our Clean Air Act requirements and the fact that, you know, what you produce and sell in Detroit probably doesn’t satisfy the requirements in Chicago, doesn’t satisfy the requirements in Peoria.
“You’ve got to have a different blend of gasoline for each and every one of those jurisdictions to meet the air quality standards. That complicates it. You can’t import as much refined product from Europe as you used to be able to do because they don’t produce any other product….”
My friends, what we have here is so much governmental regulatory BS that it restrains the oil industry from getting an adequate supply to market. Here in Phoenix, we run a summer blend with MTBE as the oxygenate compound…a compound which has been BANNED in California and many other states. This is why prices are so high.
I don’t care what the environmentalists say, we’re not in the 1960s. Congress should streamline the Clean Air Act to get rid of 46 of the different “boutique” gasoline blends, leaving the market with four regional summer blends and one national winter blend.
