Klingon Interpreter Needed for Ore. Mental
Sunday, May 11, 2003
PORTLAND, Ore. Position Available: Interpreter, must be fluent in Klingon (search).
The language created for the Star Trek TV series and movies is one of about 55 needed by the office that treats mental health patients in metropolitan Multnomah County.
"We have to provide information in all the languages our clients speak," said Jerry Jelusich, a procurement specialist for the county Department of Human Services, which serves about 60,000 mental health clients.
Although created for works of fiction, Klingon was designed to have a consistent grammar, syntax and vocabulary.
And now Multnomah County research has found that many people and not just fans consider it a complete language.
"There are some cases where we've had mental health patients where this was all they would speak," said the county's purchasing administrator, Franna Hathaway.
County officials said that obligates them to respond with a Klingon-English interpreter, putting the language of starship Enterprise officer Worf and other Klingon characters on a par with common languages such as Russian and Vietnamese, and less common tongues including Dari and Tongan.

Typing Monkeys Don't Quite Write 'Hamlet'
Friday, May 09, 2003
LONDON Give an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters, the theory goes, and they will eventually produce the works of Shakespeare.
Give six monkeys one computer for a month, and they will produce a mess.
Researchers at Plymouth University in England reported this week that primates left alone with a computer attacked the machine and failed to produce a single word.
"They pressed a lot of S's," researcher Mike Phillips said Friday. "Obviously, English isn't their first language."
A group of faculty and students in the university's media program left a computer in the monkey enclosure at Paignton Zoo in southwest England, home to six Sulawesi crested macaques (search). Then, they waited.
At first, said Phillips, "the lead male got a stone and started bashing the hell out of it.
"Another thing they were interested in was in defecating and urinating all over the keyboard," added Phillips, who runs the university's Institute of Digital Arts and Technologies.
Eventually, monkeys Elmo, Gum, Heather, Holly, Mistletoe and Rowan produced five pages of text, composed primarily of the letter S. Later, the letters A, J, L and M crept in not quite literature.
Phillips said the project funded by England's Arts Council rather than by scientific bodies was intended more as performance art than scientific experiment.
The notion that monkeys typing at random will eventually produce literature is often attributed to Thomas Huxley (search), a 19th-century scientist who supported Charles Darwin's theories of evolution. Mathematicians have also used it to illustrate concepts of chance.
The Plymouth experiment was part of the Vivaria Project (search), which plans to install computers in zoos across Europe to study differences between animal and artificial life.
Phillips said the experiment showed that monkeys "are not random generators. They're more complex than that.
"They were quite interested in the screen, and they saw that when they typed a letter, something happened. There was a level of intention there."
My thought is, they could have done this a lot cheaper by just going to Sturgis and watching the locals during Rally week. They would have noticed pretty much the same behavior.

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. A federal judge has
refused to dismiss a lawsuit against McDonald's, filed by a New Haven man who claims he
was not hired because he is overweight.
Joseph Connor had filed the lawsuit last year against the fast food chain, claiming that it discriminated against him, in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Connecticut Fair Employment Practices Act.
Connor, who weighs 420 pounds, claims that McDonald's violated the laws when it regarded him as morbidly obese and refused to hire him based on that perception.
Further, he alleges that his obesity is a disability, and the restaurant chain violated the CFEPA by deliberately not hiring him.
Man, the Clown is just being bent over and reamed lately, isn't he? First two kids sue because McDonald's made them fat, then some guy sues because McDonald's says he's too fat to work there. Make up your mind. Whine, whine, whine. I'm fat. Give me lots of money, and a super size Oreo McFlurry! -BE
NEW YORK The re-invention of Monica
Lewinsky starts today.
The former portly pepperpot will be unveiled today -- first as a guest host on The View then later tonight to emcee a new reality show called Mr. Personality -- as a new woman, with a new career, a new look and a new view on life.
A new view on life?
You mean like for the first time she won't be on her knees under a desk sucking
"I think enough time has passed for Monica to step out like this. There's no question she's famous, and after all the hype, I think she'll be judged on her ability to entertain," says Lou Colasuonno of Westhill Partners, a Manhattan-based "strategic communications" firm.
Yeah, they thought that
Anna Nicole Smith had ability to entertain as well. Probably the same think tank
that brought you the Anna Nicole Smith Show thought up this brain gem.
"She needs to give the media something else to focus on now, so that talking about the event that made her famous becomes one paragraph at the bottom of the story."
But we'll always remember
our little intern who sucked her way to the very top, won't we. Slurrp.
Fox, the network that hired her to host Mr. Personality, has managed her comeback like a Presidential campaign.
No pun intended, I'm sure. Yawn.
Plenty of people are talking for her, but Monica herself has been very scarce.
Because she's a ditz and
an airhead, but a damn good cocksucker, so says Bill Clinton. The moment this bimbo
opens her mouth, the show is going into an unrecoverable tail spin.
She has granted only one print interview (with Newsweek magazine last week) and one TV appearance (sitting in for Barbara Walters on The View today). No Letterman, no Leno and, above all, no Howard Stern.
Because they would rip
her to shreds and expose her for the two dimensional twit that she is.
It's a bold move since reality TV seems to thrive on maximum publicity. It may just be that Monica Lewinsky hosting a dating show needs no introduction.
about "And now, let's meet your host, America's favorite little cocksucking piggy,
MONICA LEWINSKY!!!! (canned applause follows)". I mean, what has Monica ever
really done but blow the president (spelled with a small p on purpose)?
On Mr. Personality, a bachelorette named Hayley must choose a suitor from among a group of guys wearing masks -- in essence, choosing her guy based on his wit and charm rather than his looks. Lewinsky will host the show (9 p.m.) and provide advice to Hayley before she kicks off a suitor each week.
"Don't let him shoot a wad on a light colored dress." and "Kneepads help
out a lot!"
"Monica doesn't just walk in and say her lines and leave. She has a very personal interaction with Hayley," says a show spokesman. "They formed a very good friendship. They're the only two who don't know what the men look like."
The only two that don't
know what the men look like from the waist up, that is.
So is Monica ready for her close-up? Judging by the recent promotional photos for Mr. Personality, she is slimmer and more quietly dressed than when we last saw her.
"Her image is important," says Colasuonno. "She has to look smart and be smart."
Monica has to 'look smart' and 'be smart'? Now where is Steven Spielberg or Lucas with ILM when you need them because if you are going to make Monica Lewinsky look smart and be smart, that's going to take some major computer generated graphics and special effects.

I don't get it. Iraq said for years that they didn't have weapons of mass destruction, and we went in and kicked their ass in three weeks. Now North Korea is telling us they have WMD?!

They might as well go ahead and open the borders and say "Invade our country and kick our stupid ass."

Mark then told me that he got one special minority / event holiday off, and that they could pick the holiday from a long list. I laughed and said he was full of it. He denied it, saying it was true. I told him that I would probably take Aztec Day off if I had to pick an ethnic holiday. He then sent me the list that he could choose from:

PETA Wants Town's Name Changed to 'Veggieburg'
Monday, April 28, 2003
HAMBURG, Pa. An animal rights group says it will donate $15,000 worth of vegetarian patties to area schools if officials change the name of Hamburg, Pa., to Veggieburg. But town officials say they're not biting.
Biting. Get it?
Oh. Ha. Ha. Ha. Got to love that dry journalism humor
"I don't care if they offer us $1 million worth of veggie patties or $2 million in cash, I don't think anyone in the community would want to sell their heritage," said Mayor Roy C. DelRosario.
Now maybe if PETA offered
everyone in the community $2,000,000 cash, they might think about it. Hell, you give
me $2,000,000 and you can name my city SHITBURG for all I care. Won't matter to me,
because I'll be long gone, on a mountain top far away laughing at all of you sheep.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals says the name Hamburg conjures up images of slaughtered cows and unhealthy meals.
Only to an uneducated
The offer mirrors one PETA made this week to Hamburg, N.Y. Officials in the Buffalo suburb, which says it is the birthplace of the hamburger, have turned down the offer.
"This campaign is a bit tongue-in-cheek because we don't expect anybody to accept, but the offer is serious," PETA spokesman Joe Haptas said.
If you don't expect
anyone to accept, then why make yourselves out to look like even bigger idiots and retards
than you already are? You have me convinced, PETA. Eating grass all your life
makes you stupid.
Hamburg was incorporated in 1837. Town officials said the borough is named after Hamburg, Germany. The mayor said the idea that people associate the borough with animal abuse is silly.
Well, the ONLY people who
would EVER associate it with animal abuse is a bunch of grass eating, tree hugging pet
humping brain dead hippies.
[Reuters reported Monday that Hamburg, Germany, had also received a request from PETA to change its name.]
"We don't have slaughterhouses in town and we don't even have any animal farms," DelRosario said. "Our name is connected to our German history, not hamburgers."
Here's a graphic I did a long time ago. It shows that I'm a member of PETA.

Recently, Kentucky Fried Chicken announced that it was going to do a study on a more humane way of preparing their chickens for processing (i.e. killing them so they can be cut up into tasty, easily marketable portions). Now, it's a sad world that we live in when we actually care about the feelings of the food we eat. It's a chicken, for God's sake! We're not talking about a higher life form! Here's an excerpt:
Animal Welfare Program
Yum! Brands, parent company of KFC is committed to ensuring the humane treatment of animals. For this reason, KFC has established a system to ensure that the very best conditions are maintained and appropriate procedures are followed at all our suppliers' facilities.
Yum! Brands ... !
Yum! Brands is the owner of restaurant companies and, as such, does not own, raise, or transport animals. However, as a major purchaser of food products, we have the opportunity, and responsibility, to influence the way animals are treated. We take that responsibility very seriously, and are working with our suppliers on an ongoing basis to make sure the most humane procedures for caring for and handling animals are in place. As a consequence, we only deal with suppliers who maintain the very highest standards and share our commitment to animal welfare.
You care about the welfare of food? You are working for animal welfare? I'm sure the chickens really appreciate that. They'll know that they will live a comfortable life right up until the instant in time when you snatch them up and lop off their heads.
I eat food. I don't care about my food's feelings. Get over it.

LOS ANGELES A textbook review process in California has changed or eliminated references to everything from the Founding Fathers to hot dogs, leaving many to charge the state with distorting history in the name of political correctness.
So what else is new?
The textbook review process, which is routinely done in many states, is meant to eliminate or replace outdated words or phrases. But whats happening in California has a lot of people wondering quite literally "Wheres the beef?"
Thats because many California textbooks will no longer feature pictures of hot dogs, sodas, cakes, butter and other kinds of food that are not considered nutritious. Nor will the books contain any phrases judged to be sexist or politically insensitive.
So we're going to show
pictures of post-op trans-sexuals, lesbians, homosexuals, liberal democrats, and tofu.
The Founding Fathers, for instance, are now referred to as "The Framers," in an apparent effort to make them sound less male-dominant.
Yeah, wouldn't want to get the wrong impression that this country was founded by a group of MEN. CHRISTIAN MEN.
And there will be no more reading about Mount Rushmore, where the faces of four U.S. presidents are carved into stone, because it appears to offend some American-Indian groups.
Hoo. Get. Over. It.
The changes, which reflect a wide range of political correctness (liberal sugar coating and the coordinated dumbing down of America), have been brought about by pressure groups on both sides of the political aisle, as both Democratic and Republican legislators have been lobbied.
Snowman? No more. Melt that image and replace with Snowperson. Want to sail away on a yacht? No, again. Its too elitist.
when did a snowman have any genitalia to identify it? Yacht? No more!
Wouldn't want to offend the illegal aliens living on welfare and the slackers out there
who won't ever be able to afford a yacht because they won't get off their lazy ass and
work for a living.
And if you think grandpa is a senior citizen, guess what? Youre wrong. Thats demeaning, according to the new standards. He is now simply an "older person."
The laundry list of words and images banned or considered offensive is not a short one. The word "jungle" has been replaced with "rain forest." The word "devil" has disappeared entirely, with no replacement.
Well, if you can't teach
that there's a God, why should you include the devil? One can't exist if the other
goes away. Rain forest? Oh how PC. It's a fucking JUNGLE. We
fought in the JUNGLES of VIETNAM, not in the RAIN FORESTS of VIETNAM. Give me a
Many of the changes seem to represent a direct assault on historical accuracy. For example, the new guidelines dictate American Indians should not be depicted with long braids, in rural settings or on reservations. There are no suggestions on how they should be depicted, however.
So, it's just better to
wipe out history, ACCURATE history, than to offend people. Yeah, that makes sense.
Let's just remove it from the history books and tah-dah! It NEVER happened...
The problem there, say historians, is that some American Indians did wear their hair in braids, and generally lived in rural settings before being relocated to reservations.
And they lived in fucking
tee-pees, painted their faces, used spears, bows and arrows, knives, hunted buffaloes,
antelope, and deer and they scalped the white man when they got the chance. It's
HISTORY. It HAPPENED. You CAN'T change it by not telling people about it.
Wait, maybe if we use this line of reasoning, if we take out any mention of the
liberals and the democrats from history books and anything else, they'll magically go
away. Now THERE'S a great idea.
Some say the changes are needed to better reach out to todays diverse student population. Others have a different name for it.
"It's outright censorship," said author Diane Ravitch, who has written extensively on the subject of how the nation's schools have dealt with the issue. "It dumbs down our textbooks, makes them bland, far less interesting than anything children might see in the movies -- even in G-rated movies or TV.
And it conditions
children at an early age to think like the politicians believe they should think.
It's politically correct brain washing, brought on by a lot of misplaced guilt felt by the
liberals who just can't stand this country and want to tear it apart seam by seam with
their touchy-feely bullshit.
"The problems that have happened in education is that the textbook publishers and the test developers have become so sensitive to any controversy that whenever they receive a complaint it is very likely that they will remove the source of the complaint," explained Ravitch.
Because they don't have
any fucking BALLS to stand up to the special interest groups, slap them on the wrist, and
say "Sit down and shut up!"
Textbook publishers admit they are in a bind. They say if they don't adopt the changes made by large states like California and Texas, they would suffer severe economic consequences.
Well then, we'll just
sell textbooks to the other 48 states. Duh. And when California and Texas come
to their senses, they can either buy the textbooks that are accurate, or they can get
their textbooks from the same company that publishes Dr. Seus and other fairy tales..
Still, there are those who defend the changes made.
"I think our textbooks should to our greatest capacity be free of any type of stereotyping," said Sue Stickel, deputy superintendent for curriculum and instruction for the California Department of Education (search). "We need to make sure that all ethnicities are represented. We need to make sure that both males and females are represented. We need to make sure that our materials cover the full gamut."
Right! What a bunch of liberal mind warping bull shit. Here's an idea for the new California school text book:
No pictures to offend the blind people who can't see, and no words to offend those students who are illiterate and might not want to be made to feel bad because they can't read. Of course, we might want to make the pages a different color because we don't want them to be white because that might offend black people.
Hell, we could even go one step further and just not have any fucking books at all, since books are a waste of perfectly good trees and when you chop down a tree to make a book, it makes the hippies cry. Let's just all go outside, join hands, and sing Kum-Bah-Yah and make hemp jewelry.

The men were prosecuted Tuesday in summary trials for "very grave acts of terrorism" and given several days to appeal their sentences, according to a statement read on state television.
However, the sentences were upheld both by Cuba's Supreme Tribunal and the ruling Council of State, and were carried out at dawn Friday, the statement said.
Capital punishment in Cuba is always carried out by firing squad. It has been used sparingly in recent years.
At least Cuba understands that terrorists have very little if any rights. We're still holding Hotel Taliban down in Cuba for a bunch of worthless excuses for human beings.

SAN`A, Yemen Yemeni authorities were
hunting for 10 of the main suspects in the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole after they escaped
from prison Friday, officials said.
The fugitives, including chief suspect Jamal al-Badawi, had been jailed in the port city of Aden since shortly after the destroyer was bombed, killing 17 American sailors.
Officials at Aden's governor's office would not say how the men escaped early Friday. But they quoted intelligence sources as saying security forces were out in force in a major search operation.
Photographs of the men were distributed to police and houses of the escaped men's relatives were searched, the officials said on condition of anonymity.
The Oct. 12, 2000, attack was blamed on Usama bin Laden's Al Qaeda network.
Al-Badawi allegedly helped buy the dinghy used by the two suicide bombers, who rammed the destroyer as it was refueling in Aden.
The 10 men, some of whom are believed to be linked to Al Qaeda, were part of a 17-man group arrested after the Cole bombing.
Officials said that the men might have left Aden and headed to Al Qaeda strongholds in the northern province of Shabwah.
Last July, Walid Abdullah Habib, a Yemeni member of Al Qaeda who was arrested while trying to enter the country illegally, escaped from prison.
Habib was arrested this year in a desert area near the Oman-Yemen border and handed over to Yemeni authorities. Habib is from Shabwah.
Yemen, the ancestral home of bin Laden, has been a hotbed of terrorist activity.
Supporters of Al Qaeda have claimed responsibility for several bombings targeting security officials and government offices in the past few months.
Yemen committed itself to joining the war on terrorism following the Sept. 11 attacks in America and has allowed U.S. forces to enter the country and train its military.

Speaking of jail breaks, I don't think it's a good idea to bring terrorists over to American soil.

Now that's a turn of logic for this nation, I would have thought that they would have voted to allow the cross, a symbol of Christianity to be burned but voted to uphold the symbol of this nation.

I see where a bunch of world reporters are upset because a few reporters were killed by a US tank when it fired on the hotel they were staying in after receiving enemy fire from said building. My thought is, where were these reporters who are demanding investigations and criminal charges when our POWs were being tortured and executed? I say this, if some reporters from some Arab or French or German news station get in the way, and its either us or them, too bad. We can always find more news reporters, hell, they're laying down in streets in California and New York, you could just go scoop them up. Soldiers are a different breed, it's hard to replace them when they're lost.

to show a Coalition soldier pointing a gun at
Iraqis. I recently saw on FOX what could possibly be the WORST PHOTOSHOP IMAGE EVER.
Now this is an actual picture that appeared on FOX news. Look at how disproportional the face is to the body. What's also wrong is that the ear sticks out almost straight to the side, in a way that isn't possible if it is still attached to the human head. There is just something SO wrong about this photo... I'm surprised I'm the only one who caught it. Mark Longmire, a master of graphic manipulation, also agrees that this has to be a fake photo. The skin color is even off between the two composites not to mention that the shadows are wrong as well. Sad. I bet it's the cameraman trying to get his moment of fame.

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- With his sister carrying his duffel bag and his mother holding his hand, a 20-year-old Marine reservist surrendered to military authorities Tuesday and declared himself a conscientious objector, weeks after refusing to report when called up to active duty.
Aw, his little sister
carried his big heavy Marine duffle bag while his mommy held his little hand. -BE
"I may not be a hero but I know it took courage to disobey," said Lance Cpl. Stephen Funk at a rally Tuesday morning shortly before turning himself in.
You are not a hero,
and it took zero courage to 'disobey', what you did was run away and hide, and then had
your mommy and your sister walk you back when you realized your ass was in a sling.
Wearing camouflage fatigues, Funk turned himself in at the locked gates of the Marine Corps reserve center where he was assigned.
Funk was accompanied by Father Louis Vitale from the St. Boniface Catholic Church. "I am totally convinced that it is the call of his conscience that is saying he cannot do that, he cannot kill."
Funk didn't show up recently when his unit was deployed to Camp Pendleton.
Funk surrendered to military authorities Tuesday morning following the rally and press conference and claimed conscientious objector status in San Jose.
"Ultimately, it's my fault for joining in the first place," said Funk. "It wasn't as well thought out as it should've been. It was about me being depressed and wanting direction in life."
And ultimately the
Marine Corps failing to take a grabasstic piece of amoebae shit like you and molding it
into what passes as a upright walking human fucking being, let alone something that could
be called a "Marine" using the very loosest of all possible definitions.
Funk, who grew up in Washington state, enlisted last February when he was 19 and living on his own for the first time.
"I saw the valuable things you can learn like teamwork, leadership -- things you can learn in Boy Scouts," he said. "I saw it as a way to learn new things and meet new people. It was a way to get what I thought was missing in my life."
He also said he caved in to pressure from a recruiter who capitalized on his vulnerability. He refused Tuesday to identify the recruiter.
Capitalized on his
vulnerability? What was this guy, on the rebound from a bad relationship and the
recruiter took advantage of his emotions to use him like a plastic sex toy? Give me
a break. -BE
"They don't really advertise that they kill people," Funk said. "I didn't really realize the full implications of what I was doing and what it really meant to be in the service as a reservist."
They don't WHAT?
What the FUCK do you think you were going to do when they put you on the rifle
range with a M-16A2 select fire ASSAULT RIFLE? Did you think you were going to learn
"Color By Numbers" with it? You have to be an utter fucking MORON to NOT
know that the Marines KILL people. That is what the military DOES! The
military, ESPECIALLY the MARINES go out and BREAK THINGS and SMASH THINGS and BLOW SHIT
UP. Sorry you missed that, it's kind of obvious to every other human being in the
Funk said he began doubting his fitness for military service during basic training at Camp Pendleton last spring when he felt uncomfortable singing cadence calls that described violence and screaming "Kill. Kill. Kill," during weapons training.
Gasp! You mean
they laughed at you when you wanted to sing "Kum-Ba-Yah" and "Michael Row
The Boat Ashore"? I'm sorry you got your little feelings hurt. -BE
"I was unwilling to do that. It just felt very wrong," he said. "I started just to mouth the words so I wouldn't get in trouble."
You mean so the other
REAL MARINES wouldn't stomp your pansy peace-nik ass into the ground. If you were so
courageous for standing up and being a conscientious objector, then why didn't you say you
didn't want to sing the bad old mean cadence calls? Because you are a coward and a
useless waste of human skin. -BE
Funk, whose father served in the Navy in Vietnam, said he expressed his misgivings to several chaplains who never counseled him about the possibility of a conscientious objector discharge.
"I didn't ask for a way out, but I told them about it," he said. "I told them I'm having nightmares about what this is going to do for my conscience."
Give me a break. -BE
Funk's father, Robert Funk, enlisted in the Navy reserves and was called up to active duty in 1970 to serve in Vietnam. He said he wishes his son hadn't joined in the first place.
Probably because his
father was a real soldier and he knew his son didn't have the balls to cut it. -BE
"I don't think he realized how close we were to getting involved in this conflict," Robert Funk said from his home in Everson, Wash. "I thought his views didn't line up with military service and he should wait and really look at it. ... I told him he had a contractual obligation. You may feel that way, but there are going to be penalties."
NBC11's Bob Redell said the Marines had not yet charged Funk with anything, he was not under confinement or arrest. Redell reported Funk would be interviewed by a chaplain and a psychologist. Then Redell said Funk would have a hearing and the military would determine whether he faces a fine or jail time for possible violations of military law. His lawyer says he would most likely face a fine or 30 days in a military prison.
How about giving him
a big, fat DISHONORABLE FUCKING DISCHARGE and a UNFIT FOR ANY KIND OF MILITARY SERVICE
rating. That would be what I would do. -BE
Applications for conscientious discharges always increase during wartime. There were 111 granted during the 1991 Gulf War. Only 28 were granted last year, military officials said.
"The Marine Corps understands there are service members opposed to the war," said Capt. Patrick O'Rourke, spokesman for Funk's unit, adding that he hadn't received Funk's application yet. "He'll be treated fairly."
The move would make him the first active member of the military to try to opt out of the war in Iraq.
Funk told NBC11 News, "I don't think is it moral to kill someone just because the president thinks it's OK."
That statement right
there has to be the greatest insight into this moron's brain and his failed ability to
cognitively operate in the same manner as the rest of us. -BE
Funk left his unit when it was mobilized for the war on Feb. 17, saying it would have gone against his morals to go to the Middle East and kill other people.
Yeah, when you're
wearing desert camo, those piss stains really show up on the front of your BDUs when you
wet yourself at the first sound of combat. -BE
The 20-year-old admits he was naive, depressed and just looking for direction when a recruiter convinced him to join the Marines over a year ago. He says he didn't think about the possibility of going into combat.
No, he was just
looking for the nice, juicy handout from the government. Give him money to go to
college and don't expect him to fight or defend the Constitution that protects wimps like
As soon as he reported to boot camp, he realized he made a mistake, he says. "I have to do what I think is right."
Since finishing military training last fall, Funk has been attending Bay Area peace rallies.
At the gate Tuesday, marine officials said Funk needed to report for duty at 7:30 a.m. every morning while his application was processed.
While he acknowledged he was surprised to get called up to active duty so quickly, Funk insists his decision had nothing to do with the current war in Iraq.
scared to death of going to war. He never in his wildest dreams expected to get
called up, and when the government and this great nation called him to fulfill his
obligation, his sworn obligations, he turned chicken-shit and ran. -BE
"I would be applying for this anyway," he said. "I believe a lot of those people going over there are going to have psychological problems and guilt. I can serve time for being a conscientious objector ... or I can go along and do something that I know is wrong and live with that forever."
Well, I'm sorry that
you won't get your money to go to college from the USMC. Lord knows we need another
major in French poetry and love sonnets who has to make a living by flipping hash at the
IHOP. Which is exactly what this kid will ever amount to, a total fucking loser.
Conscientious objector my ass, that's a PC term for coward. -BE
You know what the funny thing is? This war was one of the easiest wars the US has gone into. We've set so many military records, done so much, and suffered so little in casualties and lost equipment that the chance of this kid actually eating a bullet were so low, he's definitely a coward for not going.
Funk is right, he'll never be a hero. Do you want to see the face of a REAL American hero, Funk? Here it is...
This 19 year old girl has a bigger set of BALLS
than your 20 year old mommy's boy eunuch will ever have in this life.
Funk, you are a fucking coward. This girl is a hero. So next time you look in the mirror, Funk, think about Jessica Lynch, and what it took to go through what she did, and realize that you don't have that kind of fortitude.
Much respect, Jessica. You are in our prayers.
UPDATE! Now Stephen Funk is claiming that he's GAY! He wants out of the Marines and this war so bad, the next thing you know, he'll claim he's black and the military is racist.
"SAN FRANCISCO -- A 20-year-old Marine
reservist seeking to be discharged as a conscientious objector has given himself a second
way out -- he's told military leaders he's gay."
"I believe that as a gay man, someone who is misunderstood by much of the general population, I have a great deal of experience with hatred and oppression," Lance Cpl. Stephen Funk wrote in his application for discharge.
Colin Powell tells it like it frigging is.

brakes in their new Hummer H2, then we wouldn't need police to stop these protests, just a
street cleaner afterwards.
It's okay to voice your opinion, and to have a difference of opinion, but when you become an obstruction, when you put other people's lives in danger, that's where I draw the line. These are the same people who think it's wrong to shut down an abortion clinic but they'll lie down in traffic and try to shut down the business district. Double standards, you have to love the left and the liberals. Marx once had a name for people like these protestors. He called them 'useful idiots.' I have been highly amused at the general lack of any specific intelligence or education on the part of these losers. One female protestor even went so far as to say "We're out here protesting every day, why hasn't Bush stopped the war?"
These aren't protestors, I say they're terrorists, and should be dealt with accordingly.
I really had to laugh at the poor little American college girl who spent time over in the Middle East living in a refugee camp with the Palestinians, and then she decided she would lay down in front of an Israeli bulldozer and she got run over! Bwahahahahahaha! What a fucking moron! I mean, my mother taught me to look both ways before crossing the street, I kind of made the intellectual jump to not ever laying down on the ground in front of heavy construction equipment myself. Too bad this little do-gooder wasn't smart enough to remain in the gene pool, but then nobody is crying, except maybe her parents. The same for the moron that fell to his death trying to hang some peace and happy banner off of the Golden Gate Bridge. So long, the gene pool is better without you two.

Why do we give terrorists any rights at all? They're not American citizens, therefore they should not have the same rights as an American citizen. They should not be protected by the Constitution, since they are trying to destroy it and this country. They aren't soldiers, so the Geneva Convention (a joke like the UN) shouldn't apply to them either.
That pretty much means that they don't have any
rights, and therefore we can do to them what we want and dispose of them when we're

The last time I checked, Martin Sheen played the president on TV and George Bush was president in real life. Big difference there.

LONDON Some of the peace activists who
went to Iraq to serve as human shields in the event of war returned home, fearing for
their safety, a spokesman said Sunday.
The human shields are mostly European activists who drove from London to Baghdad in two double-decker buses last month, intending to guard civilian sites from a U.S.-led military attack.
Those who returned home had safety or financial concerns, spokesman Christiaan Briggs said.
"The aim was always a mass migration and if we had had five to ten thousand people here there would never be a war," he said. "We do not have those numbers."
The Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported that nine of the 11 British human shields in the bus convoy had left Baghdad. Briggs said about a dozen Britons remained in Iraq alongside several dozens from other countries.
He told Britain's Press Association news agency that Iraq limited the sites that human shields could visit. "Now we are being told we cannot go to certain sites, such as hospitals, so we are reassessing our strategy," he said.
U.S. officials have said that it is a war crime to use civilians as human shields and that there's no way of guaranteeing their safety.
On Friday, the head of Sweden's largest peace organization urged human shields to leave Iraq, saying they were being used for propaganda purposes by Saddam Hussein.
Maria Ermanno, chairwoman of the Swedish Peace and Arbitration Society, cited reports that Iraqi officials were arranging transportation, accommodations and news conferences for the human shields.
"To go down to Iraq and live and act there on the regime's expense, then you're supporting a terrible dictator. I think that method is entirely wrong," Ermanno told Swedish Radio.

The current case of Washington-area sniper suspect Lee Boyd Malvo, 17, may dampen any momentum to treat young killers more lightly, she added.
Whatever the high court's next move, it may come too late for Scott Allen Hain, the Oklahoma inmate in Monday's case. Hain is near the end of his appeals, and he could be put to death soon unless the court steps in.

A defenseless baby is easy to kill, but when you have to think about killing an adult human being, that would be cruel and unusual. Yeah, a needle stick in the arm and a quick trip to a coma is cruel and unusual. That sure beats getting your skull smashed in and your brains vacuumed out while you are still alive.

What I have to say to George Bush is bombs away! As soon as these "Americans" go to a country we are at war with, and offer themselves as human shields, I believe that they automatically renounce their citizenship in this country, they lose all rights they have as US citizens, and they in turn become legitimate targets of war which may be engaged freely.
My advice to these dumb-ass hippies? Smile for the tele-guided camera in the warhead of the smartbomb. It won't hurt very much for very long.
Of course, as soon as they show up, Hussein could just kill them, blow up their bodies, and scatter the burned parts around anything that the US hits all in order to place blame on the US. These hippies are going to be great propaganda tools for Hussein and he knows it.
I have some advice for the soldiers and pilots of the United States armed forces when they are fighting the Iraqis: Aim for the hippies! They're where the important stuff is!

Subway's newest spokespersons found!
NEW YORK A federal judge Wednesday
dismissed a lawsuit against McDonald's Corp. (MCD) that alleged the fast food chain was
responsible for children's obesity. U.S. District Judge Robert Sweet threw out the
suit in its entirety. The judge held that the plaintiffs did not show that McDonald's
products involve a danger unknown to the public.
"This opinion is guided by the principle that legal consequences should not attach to the consumption of hamburgers and other fast food fare unless consumers are unaware of the dangers of eating such food," Sweet said.
The suit was brought on behalf of overweight children who consumed foods at two McDonald's located in the Bronx. One of the plaintiffs is a 14-year-old girl who is 4 foot 10 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds.
Well, there may be some small hope for the American justice system after all. I mean, after some woman spilled hot coffee on herself and sued McDonald's because the coffee was hot (duh!), I figured this was the next legal blow against the Clown. My thought is, if your daughter is 4'10" tall and weighs 170 pounds, it isn't McDonald's fault that you're such a fucking useless excuse of a parent to let your child get in that condition to begin with. It isn't McDonald's that should be sued, it's the parents of these children.

WASHINGTON Although studies show roller
coasters and G-forces don't cause brain injuries, one U.S. lawmaker said Tuesday he wants
amusement parks to make more headway on safety precautions.
Two studies conducted for Six Flags amusement park by the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and a scientific engineering research firm concluded that there is "no proof that roller coasters cause neurological injury." The studies also found no significant public health risk associated with amusement park attendance.
"A comprehensive review of all the data and medical literature shows absolutely no causal link," said Six Flags Chief Operating Officer Gary Story. "Amusement park rides do not represent a public health risk and are far safer than many other of our daily activities."
The research firm says it looked at G-forces rotational acceleration of the head government data and medical literature and concluded that, "roller coasters are safe."
They said even though the speed and height of roller coasters have increased over the years, G-forces have not.
"Aneurysm rupture may occur at any time, including the time spent riding a roller coaster," said Dr. Robert Harbaugh of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons. "This does not indicate that the roller coaster ride caused the aneurysm to rupture any more than a hemorrhage while eating breakfast means that eating bacon caused the aneurysm rupture."
Researchers even brought in two former astronauts to back up their findings.
"I want to address some of the bizarre comments I've read that compare roller coaster G-forces to a ride on the space shuttle or to a fighter jet," said former NASA chief astronaut Robert "Hoot" Gibson. "Let me say that this is runaway sensationalism and hogwash."
Whereas the amusement park industry says this is proof enough that no more government regulations are needed, Rep. Edward Markey is still skeptical.
The Massachusetts Democrat on Tuesday said he asked for a separate study to be conducted by research groups not affiliated with the amusement park industry. He said parks need to take another look at whether all the loop-de-loops go to riders' heads.
"I am encouraged that the amusement park industry is finally taking so seriously the potential for brain injury on roller coasters and other rides," Markey said.
But he has asked for the Brain Injury Association of America to review the available literature and reported cases of brain injury on roller coasters, since "no one had looked at the data in a systematic way."
Markey said he hopes to have the BIAA study in hand by the end of February.
"This will be the first non-industry sponsored review of what is known about injuries to the brain on roller coasters, and will help us identify gaps on the research that need to be filled," Markey said. (and will waste even more tax payers dollars on non-essential fluff)
Markey plans to reintroduce the National Amusement Park Ride Safety Act (the WHAT!?) after the BIAA finishes its research, a Markey spokesman said. The bill got stuck in committee last Congress when the Senate Energy and Commerce Committee failed to hold hearings on it, he said. (Well, boo-fucking hoo.)
The bill would close the so-called "roller coaster loophole" by removing an exemption granted in 1981 that prevents the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission from providing to amusement park rides the standards preventative safety regulation it provides for every other consumer product. This includes the authority to investigate accidents, develop and enforce action plans to correct defects, and to act as a national clearinghouse for accident and defect data.
The act would also make sure parks share defect information found about one ride with every other operator who owns a similar ride, even if it is in a different state.
It's been endorsed by groups such as the American Academy of Pediatrics.
"When a plane crashes, an entire federal agency is devoted to finding out what happened and trying to make sure it doesn't happen again," Markey said.
(Well, that's because a plane falls hundreds or thousands of feet out of the air and kills a whole lot of people. When was the last time that someone rammed a roller coaster into the World Trade Center or that a roller coaster went off its track and killed two hundred and sixty-five people? Uh, never? Great, another useless government agency filled with useless people.)
"But when someone dies on an amusement park ride, on which people perish at a higher rate per mile than on airplanes, no federal safety official is even allowed to set foot in the park."
(I seriously doubt more
people are killed in amusement park rides than in airplanes...)
Markey noted that when he first raised the issue, there were no G-force standards, either statewide or nationally. There are now enforceable G-force standards in New Jersey.
But without enforceable national standards, "thousands of park patrons are injured in non-brain injury accidents every year on roller coasters and other park rides, and some (but not thousands like this idiot is claiming) of those patrons actually die on these rides," Markey said. "Broken limbs, cuts, sprains or death are not experiences that anyone expects when they go to the park for entertainment."
Markey said the amusement park industry has fought against closing that loophole despite injury data from the Consumer Product Safety Commission showing emergency room accidents on park rides soaring over 90 percent in the last 5 years.
The other day, I saw a commercial for a cooking pot with a built in colander. Now that is a good idea, but it made out like if you don't use their ingenious product, your family will starve when you are too much of an idiot to use a pot with a colander. What really made me laugh out loud was the selling pitch for this device; the premise was that it was perfect for tossing your salad.

Relatives of two Washington, D.C.-area sniper
victims filed suit Thursday against a gun manufacturer and store linked to the Bushmaster
XM15 assault rifle used in the deadly attacks. Relatives (idiots)
of victims James "Sonny" Buchanan and Conrad Johnson claim the gunmaker and
store showed "gross negligence" that "caused injuries and death,"
according to the complaint. The families are represented by the Brady Center to Prevent
Gun Violence (a large political center for gun-ignorant liberal
The case seeks unspecified damages and names Bull's Eye Shooter Supply of Tacoma, which either sold or lost the rifle in a theft; store owners Brian Borgelt and Charles Carr; Bushmaster Firearms Inc. of Windham, Maine; and sniper defendants John Allen Muhammad and Lee Malvo. (Good luck suing Muhammad and Malvo. Last I heard, they were living out of a Caprice and eating honey and crackers before they were captured.)
"We plan to show that less than three months after Bull's Eye received the Bushmaster assault rifle in its store, the firearm 'disappeared,' traveled across the country and was used in the sniper attacks," Seattle attorney Paul Luvera said in a statement Thursday.
"Such a swift 'time to crime' is highly indicative of grossly negligent sales and distribution practices on the part of Bull's Eye and the gun industry defendant," he said.
-I'm sorry. The gun
shop was a licensed dealer, and Bushmaster sold them a gun following all the letters of
the law. What happens to that gun afterwards is up to the person who used it, or to
the shop if they were negligent in keeping their records. You can't sue the
Buchanan's sister, Vickie Snyder of Rockville, Md., said she hoped that, ultimately, there would be more control over who obtains firearms.
Just what we need, more
firearm laws when we don't enforce the ones we have now.
"I guess I really hope the shops will be more responsible in their paperwork and the manufacturers will be more responsible about who they sell guns to," she said.
And that you will get a
fucking big cash settlement because you are a victim. Pass the Kleenex.
Buchanan, 39, was killed Oct. 3 while mowing grass at a car dealership near White Flint Mall; Johnson, 35, a bus driver, was killed on Oct. 22 in Aspen Hill, Md.
Muhammad and Malvo are accused of killing 13 people and wounding five others in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. They are being tried first in Virginia in separate case, and both could face the death penalty.
Dennis Henigan, legal director of the Brady Center, said at least three more families of sniper victims plan to join the lawsuit soon.
We smell big money!
Let us on the money train!
The organization has filed more than two dozen similar suits on behalf of municipalities and individuals.
And won how many?
Big difference between filing and winning.
"This assault rifle, which served the snipers' deadly purposes so well, did not fall from the sky into their hands," Henigan said.
And Bushmaster did not
give it to them as a free sample and they didn't find it in the bottom of a Cracker Jack
The Bull's Eye owners didn't return phone calls for comment. Investigators are trying to determine how Muhammad and Malvo wound up with the rifle.
Allen Faraday, vice president of administration for Bushmaster, said the company did nothing wrong and sold the rifle legally to a firearms dealer.
Screw the crybabies.
"We naturally don't feel it's legitimate," Faraday said of the lawsuit. "Nowadays, lawyers are looking to file lawsuits wherever they can."

bank robber is going to get shot while trying to bust a cap in a cop and his family is
going to sue the police department, the company that made the holster the gun was in, the

OAKLAND, Calif. Public school students from kindergarten through high school held a 1960s-style teach-in here Tuesday, dedicating a school day to a discussion of a possible U.S. war with Iraq.
Ah, good. One more
reason why California should be booted out of the union.
Oakland educators said the activities were designed to be educational. But some critics said the day's lessons were nothing short of indoctrination.
"Unless students are organized and clearly stating that 'hell no, we're not going to fight this war,' it's more likely the government will reconsider reinstating the draft," said Jeff Patterson, a former U.S. Marine who spoke to high school students at the teach-in. Patterson refused to fight in the Gulf War and is now an anti-war crusader (and also a spineless liberal coward who should not be allowed to have any of the rights and freedoms that other citizens enjoy).
Dan Siegal, the school board member who wrote the teach-in resolution, said the school district's 46,000 students need to learn all about the causes and consequences of war (from a liberal, one sided, political agenda point of view).
"This is really not a very radical notion here," said Siegal, a former activist against the Vietnam War. "This is simply a current events lesson focused on what many of us on the school board believe to be the most important issue at this time in our lives." (it's a chance to bash the United States, George Bush, and our military while hiding behind the education system to do so)
"What is the role of oil in this dispute?" Siegal asked. "Do we really believe the United States is concerned simply because Saddam is a bad guy or is this a way we can gain control over oil reserves in Iraq?"
Oh no! The
But critics charged that Tuesday's lessons were one-sided.
Well, yeah, that
situation is kind of what happens when you only present one side of the argument and then
drive it home as fact.
"We were just talking about how to stop the war, but no one was saying anything for going," said Oakland High School senior Zemina Mehic.
"Maybe there is a reason we should go to war."
Yeah, like to keep Al
Qaeda from detonating a nuclear device in Oakland? That would ruin your hippy touchy
feely teach in now wouldn't it?
Even parents against going to war opposed the teach-in.
Because it was a liberal
socialist hippy propaganda program.
"I think it sets a dangerous precedent, because then any other issue can come in that the board deems important enough to take away from the curriculum and to teach their one-sidedness," said parent Faith Luber.
Other Oakland residents said they were angry that educational resources were being focused on global issues and a war halfway around the world, when, to many, Oakland is a war zone itself.
Although the shooting stopped in the last Gulf War in the 1990s, more than 1,400 people have been murdered in Oakland since then. That's nearly 10 times the number of Americans who died in combat in 1991. Last year alone, 113 people were killed.
I've got an idea!
How about we have a teach in on how crime works and why it isn't a good idea to be a
criminal. That will have about as much effect on Oakland as this teach in will have
on the upcoming war, but still, it will look good.
The material was presented in what the board considered age appropriate ways. For example, a fifth grade class watched a video about Palestinian children and heard from a member of a pro-Palestinian group.
The brain washing was
tailored to the age group undergoing treatment. I bet that younger children saw G.I.
Joe killing and raping Afghan and Iraqi muppets.
Patterson told the high school students that the military is deceptive and that President Bush's reasons for going to war are misguided.
And Patterson is an idiot
who should be removed from his public office and fired.
School officials say they invited Bush and Secretary of State Colin Powell to take part. But the school claims it had trouble finding anybody in support of Bush's war policy, despite the fact that polls show a strong majority of Americans support forcibly disarming Iraqi President Saddam Hussein.
Well now, I guess maybe
Bush and Powell were a little busy to take part in a hippy free-for-all think tank way out
there in Oakland, that and the fact that they would be outnumbered. You invited Bush
and Powell, and countless other anti-war people. Yeah, that's fair and balanced.
More teach-ins are planned for the future. School officials say that next time, they'll try harder to find speakers in favor of the Bush administration's policy in order to give students a more balanced view.
Sure they will.

Eliot mans coupons not honored by car
By JAMES BAKER
Portsmouth Bureau Chief
PORTSMOUTH Chris Shields, a 40-year-old Eliot, Maine, resident who freely describes himself as a "coupon nut," is hoping his sharp eye for a deal will pay off in the form of a new car.
While perusing the classified ads section of the Portsmouth Herald early last week, Shields, a stay-at-home dad, came upon a coupon placed by Toyota of Portsmouth offering $200 off on any new or used car among the 300 vehicles the dealership has in stock.
"Twenty years ago I had a business law professor who saw an ad in the Yellow Pages offering $500 off on a car, and he clipped out 20 coupons and he wound up getting a $10,000 vehicle," Shields said. "Ever since then Ive been checking coupons."
Noticing the coupon carried a Feb. 28 expiration date but no disclaimer limiting customers to one coupon, Shields decided to test the truth in advertising theory.
After purchasing over 200 Seacoast Newspapers carrying the ad, Shields clipped out 207 coupons worth $41,400.
On Jan. 4, a day after his 40th birthday, Shields packed up his coupons in a black briefcase and made his way to the dealership on Lafayette Road with the hope of returning home with a silver-colored, 2002 Sequoia Ltd. valued at approximately $42,000.
Shields account of what took place over the course of the next couple of days amounted to what he refers to as "a complete runaround."
According to Shields, negotiations got off to a pleasant, courteous start and even reached the stage where a sales agreement was drawn up.
Shields said the situation took a turn when he inquired if the dealership was still accepting coupons.
"When I was told yes, I opened my briefcase and his (salesmans) jaw just dropped. I had written the words, including coupons on the sales agreement when he left to speak to the sales manager. He returned about 10 minutes later and told me they wouldnt accept the coupons, and that Id have to come back with a lawyer."
However, Shields said he received a call from the sales manager the next day, who told him the car was cleaned up and ready to be delivered.
"I thought to myself, what a stand-up dealership. But things changed when I went back. The first thing they gave me was the title, then a document authorizing acceptance of delivery.
"But then they handed me a second sales agreement they had drawn up, but that one made no reference to the coupons. I was then told by another sales manager that if I didnt have a cashiers check I wasnt going to get a car, and that I should have been thrown out for bringing in the coupons."
At that time, Shield said he was also told specifically that the dealership had in its possession a letter from Seacoast Newspapers admitting that the publication had made an error in printing the coupon.
"They wouldnt show it to me when I asked to see it, so I called the classifieds ads department to see if they had actually sent such a letter," Shields said.
Efforts to contact the Portsmouth Heralds sales manager were unsuccessful, but according to Shields, he received a message on his answering machine from the Herald in which he was told that no such letter was ever sent to Toyota.
"The message said the letter was never sent because there was no error. I still have it saved on my machine," Shields said.
Shields, who says he is receiving informing counsel from an attorney friend but has no plans to hire a lawyer, said he has also contacted the state attorney generals Consumer Protection and Anti-Trust Bureau office and has sent them copies of the coupons and the sales agreement.
When contacted Wednesday, Toyota of Portsmouth owner Jim Boyle said he had been out sick for several days and had not personally dealt with Shields.
Boyle did say, however, that Senior Assistant Attorney General Krysten Spath has already been in touch with him and has told him Shields complaint "has no legs to it at all."
Efforts to contact Spath this morning were unsuccessful.
Boyle said Shields attempt to buy a $40,000 car with coupons was a ridiculous attempt to try and take advantage of a situation, and that his allegations of unfair treatment on the part of the dealership only served to perpetuate an unfair presentation of car dealers in general.
When asked if he would have added a disclaimer limiting one coupon to a person if he had it to do all over again, Boyle said he had already been given that advice by the Consumer Protection office.
"One thing I am sure of. The ad ran as it was supposed to run, and there was nothing misleading or deceptive about it. No reasonable person could possibly expect to piggyback coupons like that and walk away with a new car," he said.
Shields said he holds absolutely no grudges against Toyota of Portsmouth, and would like to work out an arrangement where he could receive a car at half the value of the Sequoia and have the dealership donate another car to charity.
"It would be great public relations for them and a car for me, and it would demonstrate an honor to a commitment on their part. I want this to be a win-win situation for everyone."
But thats not likely to happen if Boyle has the final say in the matter.
"If he wants to buy a car and use the $200 coupon, well be more than happy to accommodate him, just as we have with a half-dozen other customers who were satisfied and thrilled with the offer," Boyle said.
"Were not here to hoodwink people. Ive invested a fortune in this business and Ive been here for a year, and I expect to have another good 20 years. You dont stay around by cheating your customers, and we try our very best to always provide honest, reliable service.
"But no mistake was made here, and were not going to let him capitalize on it."
What a buffoon. -BE

CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- It helps to have
a white-sounding first name when looking for work, a new study has found.
Resumes with white-sounding first names elicited 50 percent more responses than ones with black-sounding names, according to a study by professors at the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
The professors sent about 5,000 resumes in response to want ads in The Boston Globe and Chicago Tribune. They found that the "white" applicants they created received one response -- a call, letter or e-mail -- for every 10 resumes mailed, while "black" applicants with equal credentials received one response for every 15 resumes sent.
The study authors, including University of Chicago associate professor of economics Marianne Bertrand, said the results can solely be attributed to name manipulation.
"Our results so far suggest that there is a substantial amount of discrimination in the job recruiting process," they wrote.
The professors analyzed birth certificates in coming up with what names to use. The white names included Neil, Brett, Greg, Emily, Anne and Jill. Some of the black names used were Tamika, Ebony, Aisha, Rasheed, Kareem and Tyrone.
Companies that purported to be equal opportunity employers were no more likely to respond to black resumes than other businesses, the study found.
Carolyn Nordstrom, president of Chicago United, a group that seeks to increase corporate diversity, said the study shows the need to educate those that make hiring decisions.
"We like to believe that this has changed, but this is evidence that it hasn't," she said.
Ummm, could it just be that people aren't attracted to trendy or stupid sounding names? I mean, who wants a secretary named Latonguela? Heritage is fine, but please have some common sense in what you name your children. They are going to have to live with the name you give them and be affected by it for a long time to come. -BE

Court: Leave God Off Columbine Memorial
Tuesday, January 14, 2003
DENVER Brian Rohrbough, whose son Danny was killed in the Columbine High School massacre, said school officials have no business telling him what he can say in two 4-inch tiles that are part of a victims' memorial.
But the U.S. Supreme Court is allowing just such censorship, he argued.
The high court Monday declined, without comment, to hear an appeal of a ruling that keeps families from having tiles that make reference to God from being placed with 4,000 others along the school's corridors above the 6-foot-high lockers.
"If you asked me to create a memory of my son, it is always going to include a reference to God because it is a core value," said Rohrbough. He said the tile was not meant to proselytize and only someone standing very close would be able to see what is on the individual tiles.
"It is all a pretext to keep religious symbols out of the schools," said lawyer James Rouse, who represented Rohrbough and the parents of Kelly Fleming, also killed in the attack.
Rick Kaufman, spokesman for the Jefferson County School District, said it had done what was best for the school and students to avoid dwelling on the killings. He said other memorials were established outside the school.
Rohrbough claimed the district was retaliating for criticism of its failure to avert the April 20, 1999, attack that left 12 students, teacher Dave Sanders and teen gunmen Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold dead.
The school district had invited parents to create tiles as part of the renovation of the school after the attack. Officials said the tiles should not be a memorial, which would remind students of the killing. Ground rules included that none would carry a religious theme, observing the constitutional requirement that church and state remain separate.
Rouse disputed that the issue was whether students should be reminded of the killing. He said a plaque hanging in the school office says "God Weeps Over Columbine," and "they have a clock that is stopped at 11:10" the moment the attack began.
Kaufman said there also is a plaque in the new school library listing the names of the victims, but counselors did not want to focus on the massacre in highly trafficked areas. The goal was to minimize disruption.
A federal judge ruled in favor of the parents on free-speech grounds, but that decision was overturned by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which said the district had a right to censor what is said in a school-sponsored activity. The Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal of that decision.
Kaufman said the district could have removed all the tiles once the dispute developed. "That would have been spiteful. The bottom line is that as difficult as it has been to be in opposition to the family, especially in the courts, we have really tried to work with the families of the victims to help in the healing process," he said.
Care as I to remember, when all of this happened, they couldn't invoke the name of God fast enough. Now they don't want anything to do with Him. Wait until the next school shooting happens, they'll all be out around the flag pole again holding hands and praying... -BE

Tony Parsons, Daily Mirror, September 11, 2002
ONE year ago, the world witnessed a unique kind of
broadcasting -- the mass murder of thousands, live
on television. As a lesson in the pitiless cruelty of
the human race, September 11 was up there, with
Pol Pot's mountain of skulls in Cambodia, or the
Skeletal bodies stacked like garbage in the Nazi
Concentration camps. An unspeakable act so cruel,
so calculated and so utterly merciless that surely
the world could agree on one thing - nobody
deserves this fate. Surely there could be consensus:
the victims were truly innocent, the perpetrators truly evil.
But to the world's eternal shame, 9/11 is increasingly
seen as America's comeuppance. Incredibly, anti-
Americanism has increased over the last year. There
has always been a simmering resentment to the USA
in this country -- too loud, too rich, too full of
themselves and so much happier than Europeans -
but it has become an epidemic. And it seems incredible
to me. More than that, it turns my stomach.
America is this country's greatest friend and our
staunchest ally. We are bonded to the US by
culture, language and blood. A little over half a
century ago, around half a million Americans died
for our freedoms, as well as their own. Have we
forgotten so soon? And exactly a year ago,
thousands of ordinary men, women and children -
not just Americans, but from dozens of countries -
were butchered by a small group of religious fanatics.
Are we so quick to betray them?
What touched the heart about those who died in
The twin towers and on the planes was that we
Recognized them. Young fathers and mothers,
somebody's son and somebody's daughter,
husbands and wives, and children, some unborn.
And these people brought it on themselves? And
their nation is to blame for their meticulously planned
slaughter? These days you don't have to be some
dust-encrusted nut job in Kabul or Karachi or Finsbury
Park to see America as the Great Satan. The anti-
American alliance is made up of self-loathing liberals
who blame the Americans for every ill in the Third
World, and conservatives suffering from power-envy,
bitter that > > the world's only superpower can do
what it likes > without having to ask permission.
The truth is that America has behaved with enormous
restraint since September 11.
Remember the gut-wrenching tapes of weeping men
phoning their wives to say, "I love you," before
they were burned alive.
Remember those people leaping to their deaths from
the top of burning skyscrapers.
Remember the hundreds of firemen buried alive.
Remember the smiling face of that beautiful little
girl who was on one of the planes with her mum.
Remember, remember -- and realize that America has
never retaliated for 9/11 in anything like the way it
So a few al-Qaeda tourists got locked without a trial
in Camp X-ray?

So some Afghan wedding receptions were shot up after
they merrily fired their semi-automatics in a sky full
of American planes? A shame, but maybe next time
they should stick to confetti.
AMERICA could have turned a large chunk of the
world into a parking lot. That it didn't is a sign of
strength. American voices are already being raised
against attacking Iraq - that's what a democracy
is for. How many in the Islamic world will have a
minute's silence for the slaughtered innocents of
9/11? How many Islamic leaders will have the guts
to say that the mass murder of 9/11 was an
When the news of 9/11 broke on the West Bank,
Those freedom-loving Palestinians were dancing
The street. America watched all of that -- and didn't
push the button. We should thank the stars that
America is the most powerful nation in the world.
I still find it incredible that 9/11 did not provoke
all-out war. Not a "war on terrorism." A real war.
The fundamentalist dudes are talking about
"opening the gates of hell," if America attacks Iraq.
Well, America could have opened the gates of hell like
you wouldn't believe.
The US is the most militarily powerful nation that
ever strode the face of the earth. The campaign in
Afghanistan may have been less than perfect and
the planned war on Iraq may be misconceived.
But don't blame America for not bringing peace and
light to these wretched countries. How many
democracies are there in the Middle East, or in
the Muslim world? You can count them on the fingers of
one hand -- assuming you haven't had any chopped off
for minor shoplifting.
I love America, yet America is hated. I guess that
makes me Bush's poodle. But I would rather be a
dog in New York City than a Prince in Riyadh. Above
all, America is hated because it is what every country
wants to be -- rich, free, strong, open, optimistic.
Not ground down by the past, or religion, or some
caste system. America is the best friend this country
ever had and we should start remembering that.
Or do you really think the USA is the root of all
evil? Tell it to the loved ones of the men and women
who leaped to their death from the burning towers.
Tell it to the nursing mothers whose husbands died
on one of the hijacked planes, or were ripped apart
in a collapsing skyscraper. And tell it to the hundreds
of young widows whose husbands worked for the New
York Fire Department.
To our shame, George Bush gets a worse press than
Saddam Hussein. Once we were told that Saddam
gassed the Kurds, tortured his own people and set up
rape-camps in Kuwait. Now we are told he likes
Quality Street. Save me the orange center, oh mighty one!
Remember, remember, September 11.
One of the greatest atrocities in human history
was committed against America.
No, do more than remember. Never forget.
Q: How many Tennessee Highway Patrolmen does
it take to write a speeding ticket?
A: Two. One to write the ticket and the other to shoot any dogs in the area.

You know, that MSN butterfly ad campaign is
really, and I mean really homo-gay.
I'm really getting tired of the DELL interns. I think we have the perfect cast for the next low budget slasher flick. And that blonde chick really, really has become uber-annoying. I thought the blonde haired gimp was bad enough before DELL unleashed these urchins on us.
What I would ask the DELL advertising department if I had the chance?
I would ask them "What the HELL did we ever do to YOU to deserve THIS crap shoved down our throats?!"
FATTENING UP THE SHEEP
SEATTLE For years now, Americans have
been growing fatter. Studies show that the poor are even more likely than the average
person to be obese.
One researcher blames the weight problems among the low-income and poor on government programs designed to keep them from going hungry, saying theres too much focus on high-calorie intake and not enough or any on teaching healthy eating habits.
"In a time of mass obesity, encouraging the poor to consume more food makes no sense at all," said the researcher, University of Maryland Professor Douglas Besharov.
Those who give out food stamps disagree with Besharovs argument, and defend their aid programs for the poor.
"I have not seen any evidence that our programs cause or contribute to obesity," said Roberto Salazar, administrator of the federal Food and Nutrition Services.
Obesity, defined as being 30 percent heavier than ones ideal body weight, has grown throughout the country, across every demographic. Studies done by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have shown that the overall obesity rate among Americans shot up in the 1990s by 57 percent from about 12 percent in 1991 to 19 percent in 1999.
The trend is showing no sign of slowing down. An Oct. 8, 2002, report in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) revealed new data from a 1999-2000 survey that found obesity continued to skyrocket during the late 1990s among all ages with nearly 59 million, or almost a third, of Americans classified as obese.
Many of them fall into the lowest income bracket of the population. Citing research by the USDA, the Surgeon General, the American Dietary Association and other agencies, Besharov said Americas neediest are far more likely to be at risk of death and disease because of overeating than starvation
Food stamps and other federal meal programs, he said, were launched at a time when hunger was a serious threat to the underprivileged. Today most of the poor have no problem getting enough to eat, according to Besharov.
In spite of the fact that millions of Americans have stopped receiving public assistance, the government spent $40 billion on food programs last year, more than ever before.
But Salazar doesnt believe the governments way of funding and administering meal programs should be blamed for weight problems.
"Its a function of what people eat, how they eat and when they eat not just how much they eat," he said.
Besharov said that how much people eat is directly connected to how much theyre given.
"When we give poor families food stamps instead of cash, we know that they will consume 20 percent more food," Besharov said. "That might be great at a time of hunger and malnutrition, but at a time of obesity, thats a mistake."
The overeating epidemic is growing fastest among poor kids: 16 percent of low-income children are either overweight or obese, twice the rate of other children. That puts federally-funded school breakfast and lunch programs which are mandated to provide 60 percent of students total daily caloric intake under the microscope.
Besharov thinks the government should continue to fund food programs but needs to change the emphasis from quantity and caloric intake to nutrition counseling and healthy eating habits.
Some of the federal money does go toward nutrition and exercise counseling, and at least one plan, the Farmers Market Nutrition Program, provides vouchers for fruits and vegetables.
The problem is that the program only offers coupons of between $10 and $20 per year to participants and many of those who would qualify as recipients dont bother to apply.
But biting the hand that feeds the poor is not the answer, say critics of the research on links between food stamps and obesity and would only hurt the impoverished instead of helping them. In addition, the federal government can only do so much to ensure that their aid is being used healthily.
"We certainly dont control or dictate all the food choices that Americans make," Salazar said. "It would be unreasonable."
Bwahahahahaha! Research has shown that food stamps lead to obesity! The poor people are getting fat and now it's OUR fault! What next, stomach stapling for welfare recipients? -BE

Increase your word power! Be trendy!
The latest liberal media buzz word is "Smoking Gun".
It was first used by Hans Blix in his first report to the UN / world.
It has since been run into the ground by every major news source in the world.
Look for it to turn up in debates soon between Democrats and Republicans ad nauseam.
From the "Change one word and have a completely new song" file...

What is she good for
What is she good for
WHORE is something that I despise
For it means destruction of innocent lives
For it means tears in thousands of mothers' eyes
When their sons go out to fight to give their lives
What is she good for
Say it again
What is she good for
It's nothing but a heartbreaker
Friend only to the undertaker
WHORE is the enemy of all mankind
The thought of WHORE blows my mind
Handed down from generation to generation
Who wants to die
What is she good for
Say it again
What is she good for
WHORE has shattered many young men's dreams
Made them disabled bitter and mean
Life is too precious to be fighting WHOREs each day
WHORE can't give life it can only take it away
It's nothing but a heartbreaker
Friend only to the undertaker
Peace love and understanding
I saw something the other day that just made me really question the future of the human race.
At first glance, it looked to be one of those "AS SEEN ON TV" emblems that the sheep have been conditioned to flock to.
Upon closer inspection, it was slightly different.
It read "SIMILAR TO ITEMS SEEN ON TV"
From the STUPID PEOPLE IN LOCAL NEWS file...
A Simpson County teen was killed Monday morning
when a pipe bomb he made exploded in his hands.
Jim Ward, 16, of Harrisville, had been making pipe bombs with two other teens, according to Simpson County coroner Bobby Williams.
Williams said that as Ward tried to throw one, it detonated, sending a piece of the homemade bomb through his chest.
No one else was injured, Williams said.
Sheriff J.C. Dillon said Ward died at the scene after police responded to the call just before 11 a.m. Monday.
The investigation was turned over to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Ken Chisholm, ATF's resident agent in charge, said the investigation had been completed by Monday evening and no charges would be filed.
"Since it was an accident and very tragic with the young man being killed, we will proceed no further," Chisholm said.
He would not name the two teens who were with Ward.
Chisholm called the accident a "very isolated incident."
"Pipe bombs are very rare," Chisholm said. "It's a teenager who is experimenting. It's unfortunate that people don't understand explosive power." (hahahahaha! Duh! What a moron. -BE)
I miss cars with really cool names. Hats off to Mercury for naming their new luxury sport the "Marauder" instead of something lame and politically correct like the "Negotiator". You can tell that the manufacturers are running out of cool names by the new models.
You have the Suzuki Esteem, the Ford Focus (which used to be the Ford Aspire as in "I aspire to have a real car one day.") and who could forget the Dodge Neon Espresso, a chick car if ever there was one. If you are a guy, and you drive a Neon Espresso, you don't have to worry about children one day, you're already emasculated.
I think we'll one day see the Dodge Angst, the Pontiac Pervert, and perhaps, the Chevrolet Molester.
They'll probably start throwing in trendy adjectives also, so we'll have the Dodge Angst Decaf, the Pontiac Pervert GT, and the Chevrolet Molester Z-71.
If you drive a Suzuki Esteem, and
you lower it,
would you then have low esteem?
