Al Gore is irritating

Yes, I know that Al Gore is just plain irritating. He is the type of person that I would go out of my way to avoid. But I find this to be very funny(courtesy my friends on the GB forum):

Countdown to doomsday.

Doomsday is coming. It is July 1st 2006. Remember the 18 year old kid that I was telling you about? The one I work with? Well, he has not changed his mind. No, I have not said anything to him, and I won't. But this guy is headed for a brick wall and he is going 65 miles an hour. So is his girlfriend. I predict that they are going to hate each other by this time next year. Yes, it is called HK- HARD KNOCKS, and I am afraid that they are going to learn things the hard way. They will end up getting on each others nerves, to say the least. This kid, and the other kid that is his girlfriend, must be so bullish. But then again, isn't every one at that age?They are going to argue. Starting with 'The Move". I have moved before. I hate it. I refuse to do it EVER AGAIN.

Oh Rush! You have been a bad boy

Rush has been a baaad boy::again::. This time, its viagra. Here is the article, courtesy Yahoo news:WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Rush Limbaugh was detained for more than three hours Monday at Palm Beach International Airport after authorities said they found a bottle of Viagra in his possession without a prescription.


U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement examined the 55-year-old radio commentator's luggage after his private plane landed at the airport around 2 p.m. from the Dominican Republic, said Paul Miller, spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

ICE officials found a prescription bottle labeled as Viagra, a drug that treats erectile dysfunction, in his luggage, Miller said.

"The problem was that on the bottle itself was not his name, but the name of two Florida doctors," Miller said.

Limbaugh reached a deal last month with prosecutors who had accused the conservative talk-show host of illegally deceiving multiple doctors to receive overlapping painkiller prescriptions.

The matter Monday was referred to the sheriff's office, whose investigators interviewed Limbaugh.

"He said he had the Viagra in his possession for his use and that he did obtain it from his doctors," Miller said.

Investigators confiscated the drugs, and Limbaugh was released around 5:30 p.m. without being charged.

The sheriff's office plans to file a report with the state attorney's office.

"We believe there may be a second-degree misdemeanor violation, which is possession of certain drugs without a prescription, because the bottle does not have his name on it," Miller said.

A doctor had prescribed the drug, but it was "labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes," Roy Black, Limbaugh's attorney, said in a statement.

Under Limbaugh's deal with prosecutors, the charge, commonly referred to as "doctor shopping," would be dismissed after 18 months if he continues to submit to random drug tests and treatment for his acknowledged addiction to painkillers


Dennis IMed me the other night. He has been gone to the east coast on tour. Have not heard much from him lately. He wanted me to come over to his house the other night. I didn't(too tired) but maybe I will in a few nights. :X

Foods I hate

Many people make the assumption that because I am a big person, that I will eat anything. This is just flat out false. There are many , MANY, many foods that I will NOT EAT, even if I were starving to death. Yes, I will starve to death before I eat any of the foods listed here: Sweet pickles, catsup, relish , sweet potatoes, yams, deviled eggs( eggs by themselves are great),spinach, liver, cucumbers, squash, calmari,octopus,eggplant,sweet and sour sauce, tartar sauce, pork(with the exception of bacon, in limited amounts)ham, hotdogs, cooked carrots, tunafish, potato salad, baked beans, teriyaki sauce, sour cream, cottage cheese, liver, raw onions(as a spice , onions are ok) caviar, ANY kind of fish(except sardines), ANY kind of asian food(except for fried rice) , chives, whole milk, artichoke, 2percent milk, lasagna, mushrooms, onion rings, hotdogs, cheeseburgers(hamburgers well done are just fine, though)quiche, grits,hominy,liverwurst,bratwurst,shrimp,lobster,no oysters of any kind,anchovies,tomato soup(but I LOVE sliced tomatoes. Hows that for a kicker?),cream cheese, lemons,limes, white bread, krispy kreme donuts,twinkies,hohos,swirls,lima beans, and jelly beans. I am sure that there are more, but I cannot think of any right now.

This is sick and disgusting

Here is the whole article taken from my hometown newspaper:WICHITA -- A 17-year-old boy has been accused of kidnapping and strangling a pregnant 14-year-old girl as part of an agreement or contract.
Everett Le Gentry, of Wichita, was in Sedgwick County juvenile court Tuesday, facing charges that he killed Chelsea Brooks on June 9. The girl's body was found partially buried near a wheat field in Butler County on Thursday.

Prosecutors have charged Gentry with kidnapping and capital murder, or first-degree murder in the alternative. Court documents allege he used deception to take the girl.

Gentry waived his right to a detention hearing. He will be back in court on Aug. 3 for a hearing on a motion to try him as an adult.

Two adults, including a 20-year-old man who is alleged to be the father of her unborn baby, were being held in connection with the case. They hadn't been charged as of Tuesday afternoon, said Georgia Cole, spokeswoman for the Sedgwick County district attorney's office.

The mother of the girl, who was due to give birth July 4, filed for a protective order against one of those men in February on behalf of her daughter, The Wichita Eagle reported.

In her petition, Terri Brooks wrote that the man had been in a sexual relationship with her minor daughter for at least eight months. She also said he was psychologically manipulating her to keep secret the identity of her baby's father.

In the wake of her death, the family has vowed to do whatever it takes to change Kansas law so defendants can be prosecuted for the death of a fetus.

Kansas prosecutors can't charge people with killing a fetus, Sedgwick County District Attorney Nola Foulston has said, citing a case decided 10 years ago. The Legislature since enacted a law allowing prosecution for injury to a pregnant woman. However, that would be trumped by any homicide charges that would be filed in the mother's death.

Kansas is one of 16 states in which killing a pregnant woman isn't treated differently than murdering a woman who isn't pregnant, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

In other developments Tuesday, police recovered a cell phone they had been searching for in the investigation. The phone may have been thrown out of a car near Rose Hill High School.

Ahh, to be young and naive again...

There is this kid I know, he has just turned 18 years old about a month ago. He works with me. Well, I found out a few weeks ago that he is going to move out of his parents house and into an apartment with his girlfriend. They are both very young, just turned 18. I am not related to this kid in any way. Well, this kid thinks that he has it all figured out. He has paid a deposit on an apartment, and they move in in just a few weeks. This kid has had his parents basically taking care of him, except for his automobile. He is going to stay employed while going to school. His girlfriend does not even have a job yet, and she will also be going to school. I do not think that this is a good idea, his moving out of his parents house, being so young, and not having any money in savings, and owing the bank and all, but I say nothing to him. I figure that it is not my place to say anything, so I keep my opinions pretty much to myself about it. The other guy that works with us has tried to reason with the kid, but to no avail. I will agree that I think that this kid is making a mistake, but I kinda figure that some mistakes he will have to make and learn on his own, even if they are expensive ones. Heck, I can even remember what it was like when I was 18, and wanted a place of my own, so I understand how the kid feels. But then when I waS 18, I was headed off to college. I did not graduate, I came back to my hometown, then I moved in with a friend and we just ended up getting on each others nerves( I was about 22 at the time, and sowing my wild oats)s until I was about 27,(call it almost failure to launch LOL) worked, saved my money, and purchased my house. Well, that was almost 12 years ago, and I still live in my cute starter home. In fact, I shouldn't say starter. I will stay here. I love my home:).Plus, I HATE moving, and I made a vow to myself that after my move, I would never ever ever ever do it again!

Ed Schultz

'I 've never met a lobster I didn't like'~Ed Schultz

Friday, June 16, 2006


I listen to Glenn Beck most mornings and I listen to Ed Schultz most afternoons. Hows that for conflict, huh? LOL. I like to listen to differing viewpoints on things. Anyway Ed said something today that I thought was profoundly funny. Ed Schultz is a gun toting, meat eating , left leaning radio talk show host on channel 165 on xm radio. In fact GB is on that same channel in the am, and Ed comes on in the afternoons. Anyway, the subject on ES was how some folks were complaining about how lobsters do or dont feel pain when they are put in the boiling water before they are eaten. ES said he 'never met a lobster he didn't like'! LOL.

LOS ANGELES - Even in the afterlife, some celebrities remain big-time moneymakers. Elvis Presley, Albert Einstein, Kurt Cobain, Andy Warhol and Marilyn Monroe continue to earn enviable incomes from the grave, according to Forbes magazine.


Presley, who died in 1977, raked in an estimated $52 million last year. Cobain, who committed suicide in 1994, generated about $50 million. Most of that came when his widow, Courtney Love, sold 25 percent of Nirvana's song catalog in April.

Einstein, who has been dead for more than 50 years, took in about $20 million in 2005, Forbes estimates. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem controls the famed thinker's estate and collects $5 million a year from the use of his images. The university also earns royalties from Disney's line of Baby Einstein toys and videos, Forbes reports, which generated $400 million in sales last year.

Warhol died in 1987. Still, he earned $16 million last year through the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which owns his estate. Monroe, who died in 1962, generated $8 million in 2005.

It is even wierder when they are all dead, like in I love Lucy! But I will still watch...

Real Estate

I was just looking at some houses up for sale out in California and the rest of the west coast, and then on The east coast and New York. Millions! How can anyone even afford to live in those places! There were a few places that I read that one could rent out for ten grand a night. Who can afford that? Then I checked out some houses that were 'middle class ' in the midwest, and those were expensive too! I don't think that I will ever move from where I live. The other houses are too expensive. Besides I like this one, and it is paid off. I love where I live, and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. On the note of real estate, I have heard that rent prices are outrageous on the coasts, and down south. Too high , somewhere around a thousand dollars a month for a little cramped one or two bedroom apartment. ! Hey, if anyone reading this has any experience in the real estate field, or experience buying selling renting an apartment or home, email or im me. Lets chat.

worthless terrorist scumbag is finally dead

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the most-wanted terrorist in Iraq who waged a bloody campaign of beheadings and suicide bombings, was killed when U.S. warplanes dropped 500-pound bombs on his isolated safehouse, officials said Thursday. His death was a long-sought victory in the war in Iraq.


Al-Zarqawi and several aides, including spiritual adviser Sheik Abdul Rahman, were killed Wednesday evening in a remote area 30 miles from Baghdad in the volatile province of Diyala, just east of the provincial capital of Baqouba, officials said.

"Al-Zarqawi was eliminated," Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki said.

At the White House, President Bush hailed the killing as "a severe blow to al-Qaida and it is a significant victory in the war on terror."

But he cautioned: "We have tough days ahead of us in Iraq that will require the continuing patience of the American people."

The news came amid more reports of violence in Iraq, with two bombs striking a market and a police patrol in Baghdad, killing at least 19 people and wounding more than 40.

Al-Qaida in Iraq confirmed al-Zarqawi's death and vowed to continue its "holy war," according to a statement posted on a Web site.

"We want to give you the joyous news of the martyrdom of the mujahed sheik Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

"The death of our leaders is life for us. It will only increase our persistence in continuing holy war so that the word of God will be supreme."

Gen. George Casey, the top U.S. commander in Iraq, said the hunt for al-Zarqawi began two weeks ago, and his body was identified by fingerprints and facial recognition. The U.S. military showed a picture of al-Zarqawi's face after the airstrike, with his eyes closed and spots of blood behind him.

Casey said an American airstrike targeted "an identified, isolated safe house."

U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell showed a videotape of an attack in which he said F-16 fighter jets dropped two 500-pound bombs on the site.

"We had absolutely no doubt whatsoever that Zarqawi was in the house," Caldwell said.

Casey said tips and intelligence from senior leaders of al-Zarqawi's network led U.S. forces to al-Zarqawi as he was meeting with associates. Iraqi police were first on the scene after the airstrike, he said.

Caldwell also said U.S. and Iraqi troops carried out 17 raids around Baghdad following al-Zarqawi's killing.

The announcement about al-Zarqawi's death came six days after he issued an audiotape on the Internet, railing against Shiites in Iraq and saying militias were raping women and killing Sunnis. He urged the community to fight back.

The Jordanian-born terrorist was Iraq's most-wanted militant and was nearly as notorious as Osama bin Laden, to whom he swore allegiance in 2004. The United States put a $25 million bounty on his head, the same as bin Laden. Al-Maliki told al-Arabiya television the bounty would be honored, saying "we will meet our promise," without elaborating.

Al-Zarqawi is believed to have beheaded two Americans — Nicholas Berg of West Chester, Pa., and Eugene Armstrong, formerly of Hillsdale, Mich. — prompting supporters to dub him "the slaughtering sheik."

Al-Maliki said the Wednesday night airstrike by U.S. forces was based on intelligence reports provided to Iraqi security forces by area residents.

A Jordanian official said the kingdom also provided the U.S. military with information that helped track down al-Zarqawi, who claimed responsibility for a November triple suicide bombing against Amman hotels that killed 60.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was addressing intelligence issues, would not elaborate, but Jordan is known to have agents operating in Iraq to hunt down Islamic militants.

Some of the information came from Jordan's sources inside Iraq and led the U.S. military to the area of Baqouba, the official said.

Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari told The Associated Press that a serious effort to find al-Zarqawi had been underway since he appeared in a videotape in late April — the same week messages were broadcast by bin Laden and his top deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri.

He said the location in which al-Zarqawi appeared in the videotape had been "pinpointed," without elaborating.

Baqouba has in recent weeks seen a spike in sectarian violence, including the discovery of 17 severed heads in fruit boxes. It also was near the site of a sectarian atrocity last week in which masked gunmen killed 21 Shiites, including a dozen students pulled from minibuses, after separating out four Sunni Arabs.

"Those who disrupt the course of life, like al-Zarqawi, will have a tragic end," al-Maliki said. He also warned those who would follow the militant's lead that "whenever there is a new al-Zarqawi, we will kill him."

"This is a message for all those who embrace violence, killing and destruction to stop and to (retreat) before it's too late," he said. "It is an open battle with all those who incite sectarianism."

A U.S. defense intelligence official, who requested anonymity while events were unfolding, said there is no intelligence indicating that extremists planned attacks that would be triggered by al-Zarqawi's death.

However, the official said, with his death, there may be some retaliation.

It was not clear to American authorities who would succeed al-Zarqawi as the leader of al-Qaida in Iraq. The official noted that a number of al-Zarqawi's deputies have been taken out in recent months, which could cause chaos among the group's top tier.

Caldwell said an Egyptian-born man he identified as Abu al-Masri will probably take over al-Qaida in Iraq.

In London, British Prime Minister Tony Blair said al-Zarqawi's death "was very good news because a blow against al-Qaida in Iraq was a blow against al-Qaida everywhere." Afghan President Hamid Karzai said the killing was "a significant step in ridding the world of the menace of terrorism."

In Jordan, al-Zarqawi's older brother said the insurgent leader was a martyr, and the family had long expected his death. Al-Zarqawi's family had renounced him in the wake of the Amman bombings.

"We anticipated that he would be killed for a very long time," Sayel al-Khalayleh told The Associated Press by phone from Zarqa, the town from which al-Zarqawi derived his name.

Al-Zarqawi's oversaw a wave of kidnappings of foreigners and the killings of at least a dozen, including Arab diplomats and three Americans. He also was a master Internet propagandist, spreading the call for Islamic extremists to join the "jihad," or holy war, in Iraq. His group posted gruesome images of beheadings, speeches by al-Zarqawi and recruitment videos depicting the planning and execution of its most daring attacks.

Iraqi citizens had mixed reactions to the news of al-Zarqawi's death.

Thamir Abdulhussein, a college student in Baghdad, said he hoped the killing would promote peace between the fractured ethnic and sectarian groups.

"If it's true al-Zarqawi was killed, that will be a big happiness for all the Iraqis," he said. "He was behind all the killings of Sunni and Shiites. Iraqis should now move toward reconciliation. They should stop the violence."

Amir Muhammed Ali, a 45-year-old stock broker in Baghdad, was skeptical that al-Zarqawi's death would end the unrelenting sectarian violence and said the Iraqi resistance to U.S.-led forces likely would continue.

"He didn't represent the resistance, someone will replace him and the operations will go on," he said.

In the past year, al-Zarqawi moved his campaign beyond Iraq's borders to Jordan and Lebanon, where he claimed responsbility for a rocket attack from Lebanon into northern Israel.

U.S. forces and their allies came close to capturing al-Zarqawi several times since his campaign began in mid-2003.

The closest brush may have come in late 2004. Deputy Interior Ministry Maj. Gen. Hussein Kamal said Iraqi security forces caught al-Zarqawi near the insurgent stronghold of Fallujah but then released him because they did not realize who he was.

In May 2005, Web statements by his group said al-Zarqawi had been wounded in fighting with Americans and was being treated in a hospital abroad — raising speculation over a successor among his lieutenants. But days later, a statement said al-Zarqawi was fine and had returned to Iraq. There was never any independent confirmation that he was wounded.

U.S. forces believe they just missed capturing al-Zarqawi in a Feb. 20, 2005, raid in which troops closed in on his vehicle west of Baghdad near the Euphrates River. His driver and another associate were captured and al-Zarqawi's computer was seized along with pistols and ammunition.

U.S. troops twice launched massive invasions of Fallujah, the stronghold used by al-Qaida in Iraq fighters and other insurgents west of Baghdad. An April 2004 offensive left the city still in insurgent hands, but an October 2004 assault wrested it from them.

Keeping it short

Keeping the post short tonight, because I am rather sleepy. The show on courttv tonight was great. Evidentally, there was some guy who was calling up McDonald's restaraunts all over the country and telling its managers that some employees were stealing anbd using illegal drugs in their stores. The caller claimed to be a cop, and the manager was told to disrobe the accused employee, and gave the manager all sorts of strange and bizarre demands ( like have the employee do jumping jacks) even had the manager bring in the employee's fiance while the manager went about her business of running the store. Turns out the caller was not a cop at all. The poor employee was humiliated beyond bear, and they did not say what happened to the caller. Then The shows goes on to talk about the Prisoner expiriments in the 1970s, and then about Abu Ghraib(sp?) . Will tell more tomorrow night, I must sleep now.
