Denizens, I have no problem believing that Captain  John McCain was an honorable soldier.  Okay?  For once & for all, let us gratefully acknowledge that he was a hero in service to his country.  Thank you, Captain John McCain, for your military service.

Are we done with all that now?

Good.  Now, Senator  John McCain…as far as I’m concerned, you can go fuck yourself.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

As I haven’t decided to just completely hang it up, we will once again be doing the Perfect Football Weekend™ this year.  We’ll have the overview sometime next week or thereabouts.  (The only real question, other than how bad the Cowgirlz are gonna suck, is “whither Kansas?”)

“Gird your loins”, as Vice-Perpetrator BiteMe would say.

Someone has ONCE AGAIN proven that the Goreacle, a.k.a. OwlBore, has been lying.

I know, I know….tell us something we all DIDN’T know.

This time, the folks doing the telling are the neighbors just south of the Southern Command – NASA. Seems a couple of their rocket scientists have laid their version of a smackdown on the Goreacle cultists.

NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth’s atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.

That last sentence got a smirk outta me. I got to thinking “Who’s holding the doo-doo bag now Goreacle?”

But wait, it gets better!!

Alarmist computer models assume human carbon dioxide emissions indirectly cause substantial increases in atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds (each of which are very effective at trapping heat), but real-world data have long shown that carbon dioxide emissions are not causing as much atmospheric humidity and cirrus clouds as the alarmist computer models have predicted.

Great info and all, but the really good part is knowing that the cultists are in some corner huddled in the fetal position sucking their thumb!!!

SIDE NOTE: Yeah, the reporter for Forbes that wrote this is stuck on the word “alarmist”. -1 on diction.

Real-world measurements, however, show far less heat is being trapped in the earth’s atmosphere than the alarmist computer models predict, and far more heat is escaping into space than the alarmist computer models predict.

The one thing that kept coming back to me as I read this article was, “Did they include measurements from over DC and WhollyWeird cause that’s a lotta hot air that gets generated from those two parcels of land”. Then again, there’s the explanation for the heat dome we’ve all been hearing so much about these past couple of weeks.

Dismissed™

Booker T. Huffman is a professional wrestler, currently employed by World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE – Vince McMahon’s baby).  One of his favorite catchphrases goes something like, “He didn’t just say that.  Tell me he didn’t just say that.”

After reading this, you can imagine how I pretty much thought the same way.

Actress Jane Fonda said in a statement posted on her website today that the QVC television channel cancelled an appearance they had scheduled with her today to promote her new book “Prime Time,” blaming the cancellation on what she called “well funded and organized political extremist groups.”

In the same statement Fonda said, “I have never done anything to hurt my country or the men and women who have fought and continue to fight for us.”

She didn’t just say that.  Tell me she didn’t just say that.

In 1972, during the Vietnam War, Fonda took a two-week trip to North Vietnam, where she was photographed sitting on an antiaircraft gun that North Vietnamese forces otherwise used for shooting at American planes.

When she returned from her sojourn in Vietnam, as Time Magazine reported at the time, she accused U.S. forces of deliberately trying to bomb and destroy dikes, whose destruction could have caused the death of many civilians.

The question should not be how QVC could have cancelled Hanoi Jane’s appearance thereupon.

The question should  be how QVC was asininely stupid enough to invite her in the first place.

Ponder this denizens. Ponder it for more than ohhhh…

Two farking nanoseconds….and BLOOD WILL SHOOT FROM YOUR EYES!!!

From George Washington through George W. Bush, Dictator Wannabe Obambi has outspent them all by FOURTY PERCENT. In just the first TWO YEARS of his FIRST TERM!

And just as a reminder, it’s $14.5 TRILLION and counting.

God help us.

This sucks.  This @($&*!!#%^) fucking sucks.

Okay, so it’s my 30-year high-school reunion, alright?  And we’ve just come off one hell  of a dinner party that I set up, paid for (I may get that deposit back, who knows?) and hosted, which turned out to be a rousing success, far beyond my wildest dreams.  Good times spent with some very good friends, some going back as far as four decades.

And Mrs. Venomous & I spent pretty much the entire afternoon & evening at the palatial home of one of those friends, and had a ball there, as well.

An uneventful trip home, clean up & wind down a bit, catch the last little bit of Men in Black II  before going to bed around midnight.  Things are getting back to normal, and I’m finally moving past the recent death of my friend, okay?  Beginning to relax a bit, tonight will be a great night of sleep.

Or so I thought.

Two hours of sleep later, I’m tossing & turning, and sleep simply refuses to return, so out here I venture to catch up on some stuff.  First stop after checking FB for new messages is the Rott.

And I find this.

LC Anniee451 aka Linda Haley, passed away July 5th, 2011. She was a frequent commenter here and elsewhere.

She posted here once or twice as “AnnieMcPhee” – the Gravatar™ on her profile confirms it.

Not again.  Great Honkin’ Cthulu, dammit for fuck’s sake, not again.  I just get over the death of one of my friends, and now I find out I’ve lost another (one I might not have known that  well, but still) – and a Denizen to boot.

FYJFI.

Those of you who’ve watched the Amy Winehouse saga like you would watch a bad train wreck, and wondering when her 15 minutes were going to be up…need wonder no further.


“Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.

On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.”

Winehouse famously battled addiction to drugs and alcohol and was in and out of rehab several times throughout the years.

Last month, Winehouse canceled her European tour after a performance in Serbia where she seemed completely out of it.

Story developing …

No offense, but this isn’t much of a “story”.  “Burn the candle at both ends” like that (and believe me, that’s putting it nicely), and you eventually run out of candle.  Amy Winehouse simply hit the wall at warp speed, without benefit of an inertial-dampening system.

A waste, and a damned shame.

Denizens, in the wake of the death of my friend, I’ve been giving some serious thought to things, and asking some serious questions.

It’s pretty much a given, when my medical condition is taken into account, that there are fewer days ahead than behind.  I go on the page for my high school class, and I see how many of my friends – some I literally grew up with – have passed on (some many years ago, not to put too fine a point on it), and I begin to wonder how much time I have left.

And that  question begs others.

Am I making the best use of my time presently?  Are there more productive things I can be doing?

What about This Fine Blog™?  What with my schedule being what it is, it’s difficult enough to crank out a post a night – and that’s when I know exactly what I wanna write about and  exactly what I wanna say.

In fact, I was talking about this with the Vicar a little bit ago, and I made the observation that this is just like 1996, when I shut down the original BBS – not enough time to give this the effort it properly deserves.  And if I do commit to continuing this, what does it say about me to be half-hearted (half-assed?) about it?

These are ongoing questions for which the answers aren’t immediately available.  For now, I intend to keep doing this, but I’m not going to bust my ass trying to crank something out every day.  I figure you guys might get a better quality of rant that way.

(Besides, that’s why I hired other writers – right, Vicar?  Right, General???  (grin))

So, you douchebags in the Church of the SubTarded™ can mourn a little bit longer.  I’m not going away, and your pussified reverend Mykki Chickenshit has proven he’d rather play with his inflatable dolls for a sixth straight year.

(And you’d thought I’d forgotten about that, huh?)

Today at approximately 1300  My Mother,Eunice Ellen Louise Wunderlich Hartung, completed her earthly TDY and was called to the Church Triumphant. While we mourn because we here on Earth will no longer have the joy and pleasure of her presence, we also rejoice! We rejoice that another of God’s children has been welcomed into eternal life, and will no longer have to deal with her earthly cares!

Please keep our family in your prayers.

Either that, or Obama is incompetent as a lawyer. This article from National Review on-line makes a pretty good case that the Administration is legally and constitutionally bound to service our debt, even if nothing else gets paid. What is more, contrary to the claims of some of our leftest buddies, government transfer payments(Welfare, Social Security, etc) do not count as debt.

The latest unemployment numbers came out today – and, as has been the case for quite a while now, the numbers are…well…pretty dismal.

But what gets me is the opening paragraph.

U.S. employers added 18,000 workers in June, the fewest in nine months, and the unemployment rate unexpectedly climbed, indicating a struggling labor market.

Exxxx-squeeze  me?  Baking powder?

Lemme see if I have this straight:  First time unemployment requests have topped 400,000 per week for something like thirteen weeks now; the economy produced only 18,000 jobs last month, and the U3 number going up is unexpected?!?!

Really?

Yeah, right.  Pull the other one.

Effin’ morons.

Bullshit.

Just bullshit.

One hundred percent pure, unadulterated, non-biodegradeable bullshit.

First Mikey “Needledick” Schiavo, now this.  What the everlovin’ fuck  is it about Flori-duh and their nadless inability to get justice for cold-blooded murderers?

One thing’s for sure – there are between twelve & fifteen cowardly douchebags in Orlando right now.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >
