Why should we?

The UN has recently been pushing the US to turn over control of the internet to the UN. The idea being that they don’t trust the US to run things like the domain controllers. Now, let me start off by saying, I don’t particularly trust the US government… more »

An Epiphany

A recent post I read online has opened my eyes. An ideal I once held dear, and that I believe stems from something most of our mother’s taught us, is actually a problem. I used to follow the little teaching “if you don’t have something nice to say,… more »

Death to the Infidel

There exist people in the world that need to die. Not just casually, or because of a single moment of weakness. I’m not talking murders or rapists or world leaders. They may need to die as well, but I feel a more perfect hatred for a certain subset of… more »

There are few things dumber in society then watching a movie on TV and having a character say something idiotic like “Prepare to die mother-lover” then callously murdering someone. This isn’t limited to just cursing. I mean, we have movies where you can… more »

So guess what - on the ol' war on terrorism our crackdown on foreigners entering our country has been effective. We've cut down legal immigration by a respective amount, and if you're a proponent of the "shotgun" approach to weeding people out then yeah… more »

Well there's hardly a dull moment in politics, mainly because someone always has lots of ambition and very little patience. Right now is particularly fascinating because two sides of seemly eternal conflicts have decided on drastic changes to their… more »

From The Pages of WTF

I feel much better about living in this city now that "bum burning" is in effect. http://www.indystar.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050927/NEWS01/509270410 Police: Homeless man burned at crowd's urging A homeless man on the Northeastside was… more »

Before beginning, I'd like to extend my compliments to the JetBlue pilot last night. He did one fucking outSTANDing job of bringing in that plane, just spectacular. Mad props Buddy, Mad. So the details are, the front landing gear of a JetBlue plane… more »

Can someone explain...

Abstinence only programs? I don’t understand. I grew up in the 80s. AIDS was kind of a big deal. They told everyone that if you’re going to have sex, wear a condom because it reduces your risk of both unwanted pregnancy and STD. Now, for some reason I… more »

Is an idiot with a gun. And what's more dangerous than that? Well simple, multiple idiots with guns. Every time I see "celebrations" involving people firing guns into the air it's pretty clear that those celebrating shouldn't be allowed to carry weapons… more »

We're all going to die!

Sometimes I get really sick of the news media. In general, their coverage of topics is spotty and misinformed. But my special hatred is the “It's deadly, it's in your house, and it wants to kill your children, more at 11” bullshit. Here’s a hint for… more »

Email aggravation

Let me preface this rant a little by saying it's not really a rant. More of a mild concern that I feel the need to express. I'm a private person. That is to say, I go to great lengths to keep my name off the internet. If you Google me, you'll find 2… more »

I commute to work. Lots of people commute. It gives you long and unwanted insight into types of people and their driving habits. The thing I've discovered is that the main cause of most accidents I see are not hyped-up younger male drivers (as the… more »

Maybe it will go away? That seems to be the logic behind one mothers crusade. In my ongoing coverage of the “Think of the Children ™” campaign, we have this latest entry. A mother in Daytona Beach is upset at the required reading for her child’s class.… more »

Handicapped?

You know.... being a fat ass is not actually a handicap, at least not in the traditional sense. Today, I went off to the store to grab some food for the week. Pulled into the parking lot and grabbed a spot about 4 or 5 spots from the front. Being the… more »

Lets call a spade a spade shall we? The numbers have proved time and again that telling kids not to screw when their homones are running full throttle is like trying to stop a train with your mind. It just isn't gonna happen. In fact a few studies have… more »

The next great divide

It's pretty clear to me, at least that what "our" president is doing is to create a gaping chasm between the wealthy and everyone else. If you recall when our country was growing, there were railroad tycoons like the Vanderbilts, Harriman, Ames. There… more »

Paypal sucks

No, they've never screwed me. But if you use them a lot, they will eventually screw you. Everyone knows it. The fact that people continue using their service amazes me. The idea behind their operating concept is nice and simple, which is part of the… more »

Evidently in the evacuation of the hurricane stricken areas, they are trying to forcibly remove people without their pets. OK, maybe "people first", but show a little fucking compassion! What are these animals supposed to do starve and thirst to death… more »

And today's rant is on the topic of home schooling. Why is it stupid in 99% of the cases? Well, I'm glad you asked, but first let me lay out the 1% where I think it is acceptable. One scenario is a hostile or violent environment. I can understand that a… more »

At a certain point people need to decide what's more important to them - where they live (and the society it presents) or their "religion". Case in point. Stupid bint in Florida is taking the state to court over the fact that she has to show her face on… more »

So thus far we've heard very little about foreign nations offering their support to the US in the face of the Katrina disaster. A normal initial reaction would be 'WTF' since we're always there on the door of other international disasters, now it's our… more »

Reportless

Ok, I'm fed up. With the advent of 24 hour news channels and such things has also come the inane reporter. Apparently, back before my time, reporters asked real questions. Today, I have seen about a dozen examples where the reporter deserves to be shot.… more »

Since it was inevitable that the nut jobs would start blaming supposed "lack of morality" on the storm, let's start placing a few bets on this one. We all know that the American race is nothing but black-hearted opportunists who revert to barbaric… more »
