Live Earth Day!!!!

Woo hoo! After today, there will be no more Global Warming. Al Gore and the Goracles are going to rock away the heat baby! 7 continents and a billion people rocking out. What more could Gaia ask for? This is a brilliant plan. An entire day of non-stop private jets flying around the country, massive stage sets gobbling electricity and a billion people with their TV's, stereos and radios all cranked up using the evil electric juice that these stars hate so much.

If you are feeling the tofu inspired love, you can help the cause here. Make a donation...get a t-shirt! What could be better? This is the shirt I bought, can't wait for it to get here so I can fit in with the eco-nazi's.
My suggestion for the Goracle, you might want to start small chief. Clean up your own life, be a bit of a parent, get your kid on track. Then, well you know, gradually increase. Demolish your house and live in a zero-energy using house, ride a bike everywhere (exercise would be good for you bud) and lead by example. The "do as I say" attitude you and your acolytes preach ain't gonna go down well with the American public. I'm sure the Europeans love it, and the rock-stars and Hollywood types are always on the lookout for the next great Religion (yes Al, you are the new L. Ron Hubbard) but normal, common-sense Americans would tell you to stick your hypocritical sermons up your compost heap.

If you'll excuse me, I'm going outside to feed some cows some beano, light some tire and garbage fires, and spray some aerosol cans in the air. But don't worry, I'll be listening to Live Earth on the XM, so I'll be saving the Earth, one terrible terrible song at a time.

Mr(s). Clinton Responds to Pardon

"This commutation sends the clear signal that in this administration, cronyism and ideology trump competence and justice." - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.

What an odd statement. Cronyism is, according to wikipedia, a partiality to long-standing friends. Here is a list of Clinton pardons. I am assuming Hil is claiming her experience in the White House as First "Lady" count towards her um, long list of credentials to be President of the United States so it seems to me anything done during her stay is relevant.

Notice anyone strange on that list? Anyone who immediatley jumps out as the good ol prototypical crony? Hint, search for Clinton.
Sure enough! In one of his last acts as President, Bill Clinton pardoned his brother. What were the charges? Surely they must have been shop lifting or inattentive driving or some other minor infraction? Nope.

Conspiracy to distribute cocaine and Distribution of cocaine.

Yeah, damn Bush and his cronyism...unheard of!!

Say Goodbye to the Cookie

Midwest shareholders will be voting on three new board members today, and with the recent poor earnings forecast, coupled with the shockingly strong remarks from analysts, AirTran as good as owns Midwest.

It's tough to say how that will affect the customers, but the more efficient business model of Air Tran will lower prices and no frills, despite pledges to keep the cookies.

Sopranos: Tony Is Dead

I really enjoyed the Sopranos (didn't get to watch it until yesterday, since I have my priorities straight: Brewers then all else). The episode was fantastic as a whole, but some people are whining about the ending.

The cut to black was brilliant. It lets everyone come to their own conclusions and will keep people debating the Sopranos for years. My belief is that Tony was killed and the final scene was through his eyes (like the cuts to everyone who walked in from Tony's perspective). The screen went blank, as in Tony and Bobby's discussion about not feeling anything when it happens. "You never hear it coming." I think Member's Only guy killed him.

However, this also was a brilliant way to leave the series open for a movie. None of the main guys still alive (Tony, his family, Paulie and Sil) were killed. In addition to plot possibilities, there will be considerable buzz for a movie, and water cooler discussion, about the Sopranos from now until it is finally made.

I'll probably watch it again in a few days to see if I still liked it, but since the more I think about it the more I like it, I'm sure I'll still enjoy it.

Gay Bomb (Maybe That's What Happened to the French?)

This isn't unbelievable, but it is damn funny. If you have ever seen the movie Flesh Gordon, imagine that, but with all dudes...kinda makes me want women on the front line.
Pentagon Confirms it Sought to Build 'Gay Bomb" - A Berkeley watchdog organization that tracks military spending said it uncovered a strange U.S. military proposal to create a hormone bomb that could purportedly turn enemy soldiers into homosexuals and make them more interested in sex than fighting.

Are we sure Madison was never bombed?

Fat Chicks Hate Bush

The fat girl who is revolutionizing TV by making it okay to be tubby on the tube has blasted the President.

“I guess I'm a free-spirited person and America's supposedly the 'land
of the free,' right?” She then added, to loud applause from the left
coast film industry audience: “Or at least we will be in 2008.”

Great, big girls (Natalie Maines anyone...) feel free to hit the buffet, and rip the President on the way to the dessert table.

Yet Another Reason Apple Sucks

Yes, Apple, the kings of patent whoredom, have successfully patented the lanyard, or "Ornamental Harness" as they call it.

Enjoy dropping $35 for the ugliest mp3 player accessory in existence. But hell, you're buying an Ipod accessory, so you're used to overpaying for colorless crap.

Iraq: Terrorist Training Ground!!!

So says Michelle Pilecki over at Huffington Post. This is just the latest leftist (I have no idea who she is but come on, she posts at HuffPo) to spout this talking point. What I NEVER hear is the opposite; isn't it also a training ground to FIGHT terrorism?

No one honestly believes that had we not gone to Iraq, the terrorists would have just given up (recruitment poster, serious? As long as their is an Israel and radical Imam's teaching violence, no "recruiting posters" are necessary).

With Iraq and Afghanistan, we are training not only our soldiers but our systems how to fight a war against insurgents. The lessons learned from these conflicts will be invaluable in an increasingly decentralized world of violence. In the near-term, it does not look like there will be traditional battles or battlefields, and since our society has been conditioned to not tolerate Total War, the Armed Forces are required to adopt new strategies. These conflicts will be valuable in the future, and wile 3000+ men is a terrible tragedy and a terrible real price to pay, the lessons learned could prove to be infinitely greater.

Teacher's Nose Attacks Students Fist!!

A Milwaukee teacher attacked a 15 year old student with her face today at Frische Middle School. Or at least, I'm sure that how the folks in the city will spin it.

A 15-year-old girl who was talking on a cell phone in class yesterday
became angry when her teacher told her to hang up and hit the teacher
repeatedly in the face, chipping her tooth, Milwaukee police said.

girl was restrained by male students until police arrived and arrested
her on suspicion of substantial battery, said Anne E. Schwartz,
department spokeswoman.

The girl was on a phone at Fritsche
Middle School, 2969 S. Howell Ave., at 10:30 a.m. - in violation of
school district policy - when the 54-year-old female teacher confronted
her, Schwartz said.

Absolutely stunning. Time to start a SERIOUS crack down. This is a perfect case. Throw the book at this kid. Expelled from school, try her as an adult, throw her in the can for a month.

Oh, but you'll ruin her future!!

Really, the girl flew off the handle because the teacher told her to stop talking on the phone...DURING CLASS!!! Who thinks that is okay? Who is so stunned that this is inappropriate behavior that when they are called on it, they pounce like a freaking animal? What future does this girl have? In what society can she thrive?

(I'm glad the race of the individuals involved hasn't been disclosed yet, I can speak without worry of being un-PC).

National Pancake Day

Apparently, tomorrow, February 20th is National Pancake Day. (In addition to Fat Tuesday). To celebrate, IHOP is giving away free pancakes from 7 am to 10 pm. There is some charity tie in but honestly, you just want the pancakes.

So uh, is this not a human being?

Does a baby born at 22 weeks get a birth certificate, I mean, according to abortion fanatics a fetus isn't a person yet because it isn't fully formed, so what is this??

I think the last line is the most telling in terms of impact this birth SHOULD have:

Amillia's incredible story will reignite
the debate over Britain's abortion laws, which campaigners say must be updated in the light of recent medical advances.

Babies can still be aborted for non-medical
reasons at up to 24 weeks. Recent evidence shows that, of those born at 25 weeks, half of them manage to live.

Stumble Video

For those of you familiar with stumbleupon, they have a new service. Stumble Video is a service that lets you watch random videos from various web sites (I think google, video and myspace). Very cool way to keep me from studying my accounting.

Singapore Gets It


If the average state levy is included, the U.S. corporate tax rate is
about 40 percent, which is higher than the coporate rate in every
European welfare state. American companies also must endure heavy
regulatory burdens especially in the aftermath of Sarbanes-Oxley.

In his Budget Statement for the Financial Year (FY) 2007, Second
Minister for Finance, Tharman Shanmugaratnam announced a two percentage
point reduction in the corporate income tax rate to 18% to sharpen
Singapore’s competitive edge.

So, Singapore wants to be more competitive and they lower taxes. Doyle wants to be more competitive so he, um, threatens jail time against executives who pass on operation costs in the price of their product. Hmmm, where would you want to do business?

Olbermann Worse Than War

At least military analyst Ken Allard thinks so. The former colonel told NBC to shove it and it seems Olbermann defending American military hating Bill Arkin was the last straw.

Has anyone else noticed the network's precipitous retreat from journalistic and

ethical standards? Not only were no apologies given and no pink slips

issued for Arkin's outburst, but on his MSNBC show last week, Keith

Olberman went out of his way to defend this "valid criticism" of our

AJ Ratliff Made My Girlfriend Sleep On the Couch

So I watched the game at the sweet sweet bar that I play softball for last night. They also tune into every Brewer game, every night. I have trained them to have it on no matter what, so that if I stop in it better be on TV. (I tip well).

Anyway. That sumbitch worked Bucky last night and I was angry. My girlfriend is an IU grad. I told her at halftime if the Hoosiers won I would dump her. At the end of the game she stood up, jumped up and down, and shook her fantastic ass a little bit.

We reached a deal. I didn't dump her, but she slept on the couch... in her apartment.

You know what sucks about being from Wisconsin?

Molly Ivins: Dead

When I was in sixth grade President Richard Nixon died. My teacher at Lowell Elementary in Waukesha only mentioned it by saying "if you don't have anything nice..." when I asked him at the end of the day why the death of a President wasn't worth discussion. That's about my feelings towards Ivins. I'd imagine she is somewhere in the great beyond, discussion a socialist Utopia with Che and Lenin...wondering where it all went wrong. I'm sure she'll be first in line to offer Castro a chair.

She'll be remembered for plagiarism and as the person who coined "Shrub." The Lunatic Fringe is in tears.

Militant Atheists Taunt the Religious

Is there really a point to taunting those who believe in God, and to attempt to directly taunt God? Fine be an atheist, but is there a reason to be militant?

Thug Tech Riot

Wow, the Urinal actually posted video of the riot last night that broke out after the Bradley Tech - Bay View overtime basketball game. Clearly, time to stop allowing spectators into the Bradley Tech basketball games. Better yet, charge $35 per ticket, that will quickly solve the problem. These idiots want to beat hell out of each other on their own time in the streets, go nuts, but when these riots break out at high school sporting events, there are families, children, old people and all are put in danger. Go through the video and suspend any kid on the court, any kid swinging, and especially any kid who was arrested or detained. Chances of that happening? Mr. Slim, meet Mr. None.

I like that the Urinal calls it a "disturbance." Anytime DOZENS of cops have to go anywhere, and 4 of these officers are injured, it's no freaking disturbance.

Of course, since most of the people in the video appear to be black, I am sure it's just me being racist for thinking this is outrageous.

Symphony Mario

This is pretty freaking cool, if you like video games, which I in fact, do (just got a DS for the Boston trains...amazing!)

Where Have You Been??

Well, I’ve been in Boston for the past year, and I will be staying for the foreseeable future (grad school). A few things have made me decide to return to the great pastime of blogging. (I think that word is half the reason I stopped by the way).

#1 Google Reader. The thing is incredible. It’s like a never-ending listing of things that interest me, and every day I am adding new feeds. It is fantastic.

#2 Tommy Thompson. T2 is running for President!! He will be my guy until he is knocked out. I want to spread all the word I can, while I can, however I can.

#3 This jackass.

So folks, Righting Wisconsin is back, feel free to drop me a line if you want to know more about my last year. It’s been dope. And go check out the Sports Bar.
