Dateline: Tomorrow Night:
The police storm in and you -- not being a drug dealer and consequently having no reason to think the police might break into your home -- mistake them for criminal intruders and meet them with a gun, you are at fault. I guess your crime is living in an area where drug dealers could use your porch while you aren't home, or being a too trusting, frail, old woman. ... The solution is actually pretty simple: Stop invading people's homes for nonviolent offenses. and the police should be held strictly liable for mistakes, without benefit of official immunity. And they should be required to
record video of the entire proceedings

Think of a politician's soul as an apartment. Think of lobbyists as renters. Each year, the renters show up, waving wads of cash.
The men the American public admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.

Its just Sci-Fi, right ?
... They were small, less than twenty feet long, and only 18 inches in diameter, powered by small, quiet, fuel-efficient, high-bypass turbofans, and painted in a mottled light blue and light gray ghost camouflage. Cruising at 600 knots, just below the speed of sound, they were nearly impossible to see or hear. They came in under the radar until they reached the coast. After that they were lost in the ground clutter. Nobody saw it coming.
At precisely 0753, Hawaii time, 1353 in the District of Columbia, Dec.7th, 2008, sixty-seven years to the minute after the Pearl Harbor attack began, the first of six missiles to hit the Washington area exploded in a huge white burst of nuclear fire just 500 feet above the White House ...
This was so obvious it took a college study to be organized.

F's because you don't point out liberal hypocrisy without paying the price.

POSTED: 10:57 a.m. EST, November
TORONTO, Ontario (Reuters) -- The use of medical marijuana has given two Toronto professors the right to something that many students could only dream of -- access to specially ventilated rooms where they can indulge in peace.
Its for medical reasons, it won't affect their ambition, tenure, or like anything like that. man.

Call Jeff Foxworthy, we've got a new one for him:
Not that we needed any help:
the Mrs. wore her power suit, and that combined with her sunglasses
makes her look like a DEA agent.
the other funny was that I ran into the hiring manager at the company from a few months ago that had the IT manager position where the candidate also had to have a black belt or be a registered sensei. So I asked him, what was up with that? was it an April Fools day posting? Of course not, he says. It was a serious requirement for a serious job, and I think he took umbrage with me questioning him thusly. Any ways I just let him know that it was way off the beaten path and I had a legit question. He says what they needed was an IT person with drive, and the black belt would mean that the candidate did indeed have drive.
Silly me. I only wasted a moment of his precious time, but I had to know.
My wife's nickname for this activity of mine is smart-apple.

No matter how many scientists cast doubt on the pronouncements, Global Warming still gets a lot of momentum from the drive-by media. Al Gore keeps talking, and keeps reminding us of things that kill, such as carbon, cigarette smoke, and standing on a platform full of holes.

Here's the deal about Iraq:
The US went into Iraq to protect the US and Iraq. Democritization of the region is just a plus. Being "weak on Iraq" means "weak on America" Despite other corruptions, the Republican government really doesnt use the armed forces except when American safety and interests are at stake. the "Bush lied" mantra doesnt work. The WMDs and nuclear aspirations were found and documented, even by the MSM.
ORSON SCOTT CARD has thoughts on the 2006 and 2008 elections:
I say this as a Democrat, for whom the Republican domination of government threatens many values that I hold to be important to America's role as a light among nations.
But there are no values that matter to me that will not be gravely endangered if we lose this war. And since the Democratic Party seems hellbent on losing it -- and in the most damaging possible way -- I have no choice but to advocate that my party be kept from getting its hands on the reins of national power, until it proves itself once again to be capable of recognizing our core national interests instead of its own temporary partisan advantages.
To all intents and purposes, when the Democratic Party jettisoned Joseph Lieberman over the issue of his support of this war, they kicked me out as well. The party of Harry Truman and Daniel Patrick Moynihan -- the party I joined back in the 1970s -- is dead. Of suicide.

Nothing really new to report today. I've been looking for a new job (with CDL in hand it should be easy) and Mrs.V has been away on fambly bidness.
Pictured at right is a 101 year old drill press. Recently I restored it for my sweet-heart. It was a frozen rusty pile of rust and spiderwebs. Now its a working well-oiled machine mounted on a nice hardwood display.
