Boy Sets Fire! (a great band)


Well, it's solved! A boy set the California fires! It was on CNN, CBS, FOX, all of them!

So, a juvenile boy told the police he set 38,000 acres of California on fire. How did that happen? Did he walk up to them, and say, "I'm the one who set California on fire? What if he was lying? I thought Al Qaeda did it! Does this boy work for Al Qaeda? I think there ought to be a law that little boys can play with matches (I did) and not have to worry about 38,000 acres of California catching on fire! What's going to happen to this boy?

If 38,000 acres could be set on fire by a spark, wasn't it just an accident waiting to happen? Right now, there are thousands of acres waiting to burn by a spark! Whose fault is that?

So, I guess it's "case closed"! A little boy did it! Let's put him in Gitmo! And not determine where the next couple of thousand acres will go off with a spark!

Do you think his favorite band is Boy Sets Fire? (My Space)

House Passes H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007

(Jane Harman and ???)

Remember we said our government's first step in controlling the internet, the voice of the people, would be to do it by disguising a bill by saying it was to "stop the terrorists"? Well, did that just happen?

The House just passed bill H.R.1955 which is titled, "H.R. 1955: Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act of 2007", introduced by Democrat Jane Harman, who was under investigation by the FBI for striking an alleged deal with AIPAC to urge the White House to go easy on Israeli spies Keith Weisman and Steven Rosen, the two former AIPAC executives on trial for spying in the U.S.

Here are the co-sponsors...I notice our own local NEPA Democrat Chris Carney is a co-sponsor! Here is the vote. Note: Dennis Kucinich & Ron Paul voted against it.

In case you aren't paying attention, H.R. 1955, section 899B, it has this clause:



`(3) The Internet has aided in facilitating violent radicalization,
ideologically based violence, and the homegrown terrorism process in the United
States by providing access to broad and constant streams of terrorist-related
propaganda to United States citizens.


Do you think this bill will be abused by our government like the "Patriot Act" or the "Military Commissions Act"? Do you trust them, after what you've seen? Do you think it will be used to label certain peoples' enemies "terrorists"? Who will decide that? Do you think this bill is a threat to net neutrality? Does it sound like another bill that if you vote against it, they can use the old association game "you're with the terrorists", when their real ploy is for the government to control the internet?

Sounds like a bill that will definitely be abused by our government! It will be sent to the Senate for passage, and you better get busy writing to them! I also suggest, you bookmark http://www.govtrack.us/ and start tracking the House votes! Here are some other thoughts on it.

After Vetoing Bill To Label Cloned Food, California GOP Governor Arnold Schwartzenegger Addresses Media...Dressed As Mr. Freeze!


Governor of California Arnold Schwartzenegger vetoed a historic bill that would have required labelling foods that came from cloned animals. He showed up at a press conference dressed as his Batman character Mr. Freeze, to address the crowd.

Mr. Freeze: Allow me to break ze ice. My name is Freeze. Learn it well. For it's ze chilling sound of your doom.

Reporter: Your veto of this cloning bill is a surprise, being that you are a Republican and your voting base is against cloning. And your constituents from both right and left agree that they want their food clearly labelled whether it came from cloned animals or not, so they could choose not to buy it...

Mr. Freeze: Ice to zee you!

Reporter: Did it have anything to do with all that lobby money from the food industry?

Mr. Freeze: Did you zee zoze fires? I put zem out vit mine Freeze Gun! Zey had no chanze! I zaid to zem, "I'm here to make your life a living hell. Prepare for a bitter harvest. Winter has come at last." And zen I zhot zem vit mine Freeze Gun!

Reporter: There are no conclusive tests yet, that food from cloned animals is safe for consumption.

Mr. Freeze: If revenge is a dish best served cold, zen put on your Sunday finest. It's time to feast! I'm afraid my condition has left me cold to your pleas of mercy. Tonight, hell freezes over!

Reporter: You are avoiding the questions!

Mr. Freeze: Chill out!

Fakery Abounds: World Class Knucklehead and FAKE Reporter James Guckert (aka FAKE GOP reporter Jeff Gannon) Condones FAKE fema Press Conference


World Class FAKE reporter James Guckert (aka Jeff Gannon) commented here on my blog, that he condones the FAKE FEMA press conference about the California fires. On Tuesday, FEMA held a news conference about the California fires, broadcast on FOX "news" (of course) and MSNBC. Although they didn't disclose it to the viewers, the reporters asking FEMA the questions at this news conference were FEMA employees posing as reporters! It's called an infomercial or propaganda, and it's flourishing in anything connected to the Bush administration.

In his comment here, Gannon/Guckert rationalizes the FAKE news conference on behalf of FAKERS everywhere, saying among other things: "Perhaps FEMA wanted an opportunity to present its version of events before the Old Media created its own reality about the fires and the actions of the agency." Hmmmm...what do you mean by "its version of events"? You mean "the version of events" from the infomercial with the FAKE FEMA reporters?

Yes, Jeff...that's the way news should be, just like you! A FAKE infomercial with FAKE reporters asking softball shill questions of the people they work for! The people in power should present the American citizens a FAKE infomercial before the REAL news...and pass it off as "news"! That's your arguement you think we'll "buy into"! You make perfect sense...IN THE WORLD OF FAKERY!!!

"We must beat the REAL news to the punch...with 'our version of events'...the version from our infomercial! With our FAKE reporters who work for those being 'questioned' (wink wink)!"

Of course, in your world of FAKERY, you could apply your embarrassing arguement of beating reality to the punch for other FAKE news like: FAKE news released by the Bush administration in the form of VNR's, the FAKE WMD's fairy tale to lead us into the Iraq War of lies, FAKE "voters' rights" group ACVR, FAKE "security mom's" group Family Security Matters, FAKE "grassroots" pro-Iraq War groups like Freedom's Watch, FAKE TV editorials, FAKE government paid pundits, ...FAKE EVERYTHING!!!

You're slogan on your website is, "A Voice Of The New Media." That's accurate...you're a voice in the "New FAKE Media", which is what you want and are justifying with your comments! I'm sure the American people want to trust their government to the point where they justify anything they do with FAKE news and infomercials! You know best how the "New Media" should be! We should FAKE everybody out of the truth!

The only thing NOT fake about what he said on my blog, is this: "When I learned of the fake news conference, I expected that the characterization of Jeff Gannon as a phony reporter would be revived."

YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! It's the only thing you got right!

For those of you who know little about James Guckert aka Jeff Gannon, as he doesn't mention any of these things in his comments (of course), check this out (if you've got time):

White House Press Secretary on FAKE FEMA Reporters: "THE WHITE HOUSE CONDONES IT"


This is part of a transcript of White House press secretary Dana Perino said to the White House press corps. I'm highlighting the important sentence in bold:

DANA PERINO: I just said that the White House did not know about it beforehand, and the White House condones it. And they have apologized for it. They had an error in judgment. They have admitted that. And I think that what they were -- I don't think that there was any mal-intent. I think that they were trying to provide information to the public through the press, because there were so many questions pouring in. It was just a bad way to handle it, and they know that.

I'm not joking around here! I don't have the word "funny" in the label for this post, do I??? Here's the transcript of Dana Perino, go down to the 5th "Dana Perino" quote:

Transcript of Dana Perino on Democracy Now! News

Find the sentence for yourself, watch this video...SHE REALLY SAID THIS!

The Video Of Dana Perino Saying "The White House Condones This"

Did anyone catch this? Actually, my wife caught this! We have DVR (TiVo), and kept playing it back to make sure we weren't hearing things, and SHE REALLY SAID, "THE WHITE HOUSE CONDONES THIS!"

Check it out for yourself, if you don't believe me!!!!!!

Are we the only ones who caught this??? Even Democracy NOW! has it in their transcript, and didn't point it out!!!!!!!!!

Dana Perino admits, on video and in print, about the FAKE FEMA reporters, "THE WHITE HOUSE CONDONES THIS!"

No big deal? For the White House press secretary to admit this?

Red Sox Sweep Rockies For World Series Victory! (and have 2 happy-ending cancer-survivor stories)



BD: This is a picture of the Red Sox' Jon Papelbon, who came in at the end of every game and got the Rockies out...while I was biting my nails! I think Papelbon should've gotten the World Series MVP. He had several multi-inning saves. When he came in, the games were over! How great is it, to rely on a closer like that in the World Series? Papelbon is the best closer in major league baseball! HE DIDN'T GIVE UP ANY RUNS THE ENTIRE WORLD SERIES! But I'm not going to argue with their pick of Mike Lowell as MVP. The Red Sox have 2 cancer survivors: John Lester and Mike Lowell. Lester won the deciding game, and Lowell was the WS MVP. My wife had cancer, and it's nice to see 2 happy-ending cancer survivor stories like Jon Lester and Lowell, read below...

What's A Wigger???


(Big Dan in a "Wigger jacket"...whatever that is!!!)

I hate shopping! But it's getting colder out, and I wanted to get some hoodies. I like hoodies. Why am I talking like George Bush??? Anyway, my wife and I went shopping for hoodies. They're cheap and I like them. And they keep me warm. But I'm picky with hoodies...I want a hoodie with big pockets so my things don't fall out of my pockets when I get in and out of the car. I hate hoodies where my things fall out of my pockets! So, we go to JCPenneys up da mall. Did I tell you I hate shopping? Did I also tell you I have no clothes sense? I don't care what clothes look like, as long as they're cheap! So, I'm looking at hoodies, and they all have those tiny pockets where my things are going to fall out. Here we go again! I was thinking... I don't want my things falling out of my pockets! So, I'm looking around and looking around, and what do I see? A hoodie with zipper pockets! I'm getting it! Now there's a company that's thinking! Let's get out of here! I got a hoodie!

So, I get home and my daughter's there. I'm so proud I actually bought a piece of clothing! So, I say, "Hey, Little De! I bought a hoodie! Wanna see it?"

I put it on, and she burst out laughing! She can't stop laughing!

"What's so funny?", I said indignantly.

She laughs out (barely) the sentence, still in hysterics, "THAT'S A WIGGER JACKET!!!"

I, of course, ask, "What's a Wigger jacket? I like this hoodie because it has zipper pockets, so my things don't fall out! That's why I bought it! That's all I care about! I took one look at this hoodie with zipper pockets, and I said to myself, 'Now there's a company that's thinking!"

Little De says, "Just put on the Wigger jacket, these shades, this gold necklace for bling bling, this skull cap hat (I like them too! What's wrong with them?), and I want to take 100 pictures of you while I'm laughing hysterically! It's going to be the wallpaper on my cellphone, my PC, everything! And give me some attitude, like 'You just jacked my ho'!"

"OK, but why? What's bling bling? Jacked my ho'? Are you speakin' another language? And what's a Wigger jacket? I don't get it! Should I return the hoodie?"

Litte De: "Nope! You just got your Halloween costume!"

Two Interesting 1-Hit Wonders


I saw this show on VH1: "One Hit Wonders", and thought I'd toss out these 2 interesting videos.

1. 1985-Mary Jane Girls: "In My House"

I actually bought this single years ago, I still have the single! I like the song, never saw the video until this VH1 special. I do like funky songs like this, "Play That Funky Music", some funky Sly Stone songs, and groups with a funky sound like Level 42, Prince, and Beck. This song is actually written by Rick (Super Freak) James, bitch!!! I didn't know this, either: "Mary Jane" was Rick James' favorite drug, and this band was his creation! The Mary Jane Girls very quickly disbanded due to the drugs, violence, and jailtime of Rick James. But yet, years later, successfully marketted girl-groups like the Spice Girls, patterned themselves after the Mary Jane Girls. They are all moms now and in their present day interviews, they were very, very nice women with great senses of humor! They said if they didn't disband because of all the turmoil, they would've been on lunchboxes, t-shirts, etc...like the Spice Girls were! You can tell Rick James wrote this song (bitch!). Love him or hate him, he wrote 2 killer songs: this one and "Super Freak"! I actually think this song is better than "Super Freak"! Don't get the Mary Jane Girls confused with Prince-offshoot girl groups...this is Rick James, bitch! And I like the video. Hmmm...I wonder why...can't figure it out! Something very attractive about this video!



2. 1976-The Andrea True Connection: "More More More"

I've heard this song a million times. What didn't I know? Andrea True was an X-rated porn star before releasing this video! Did you know that? Apparently a lot of people did, according to the commentors on VH1. I didn't! Duh!!! In fact, it showed her in one of her X-rated videos (naughty bits blacked out on VH1, of course) having sex and passionately screaming, "More More More"! That must've inspired this song...ahem...sorry, I had to clear my throat for a second... Also, it showed a clip from one of her X-movies of a guy saying, "I thought you were a red-head" She replied, "That won't matter with the lights off!" So, now there's new meaning to her lyrics, "Get the cameras rollin', get the action going, More More More, how da ya like it? How da ya like it?" This song will never be the same for me after knowing this! How do you like your love?

The Funniest Joke In The World!



The entire White House press corps dropped dead (seriously, they died!) laughing, because of the "Funniest Joke In The World" ever told, by White House press secretary Dana Perino.

Her official White House response to the FAKE FEMA REPORTERS was as follows:

"It is not a practice that we would employ here at the White House or that we -- we certainly don't condone it," said Perino.

After witnessing the lethal effect of this joke, the Pentagon is trying to harness its use for military purposes:

FAKE "grassroots" pro-war group "Freedom's Watch"...made up of millionaire ex-Bush aides

FAKE GOP "Security Mom's" Group "Family Security Matters"

No WONDER Rush Limbaugh Doesn't Want You To Have Free Health Care!



Why does Rush Limbaugh love tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, but hate families that make less than $40,000 anually? Because he's one of the millionaires and billionaires...D'UH!!!

No one in the media speaks about his $285 million contract (that's more than a quarter-BILLION dollars!), because it's hard to find out that information! I did a Google search on Rush Limbaugh and got 1.6 million hits. I added the words "$285 million contract", and got 224 hits!!! And none of those hits were from a major source announcing his $285 million contract! All of those hits were from non-major sources or his contract mentioned in passing in an article on a different subject like his drug addiction or a sports article. It's hard to believe, that no major news sources had an article announcing his $285 million contract, isn't it?

Rush Limbaugh is not a conservative! He's a mouthpiece for millionaires, billionaires, and corporations! He's a "self-proclaimed conservative"! He isn't for smaller/weaker government, he's for promoting Bush's executive branch power-grab making the president into a dictatorship! He never speaks out against Bush's record federal spending! He's for "big government" illegally wiretapping American citizens' phones, emails, and computers! He's for non-stop pre-emptive war in which our troops are being killed for no reason and never get to come home with stop-loss! None of these things are "conservative"!

No wonder Rush Limbaugh wants families making less than $40,000 to pay $12,000 to cover their children with SCHIP health coverage, is big anti-union, is for huge tax cuts for the rich, against raising the minimum wage, against the Estate Tax which affects only the 2% super-richest families and not you, against national health care for all, and smears anyone who speaks out for the poor and middle class!

No wonder he loves millionaires and billionaires...and hates you! Because he's a hundred-millionaire/almost a billionaire!

His "dittohead" followers are either brainless idiots against their own self-interest, or paid shill actors...like Bush's fake reporters. Either way, that's bad!

Who writes his show? He's too stupid to write it! And he's too rich and busy golfing and smoking his big, fat, expensive cigars and taking oxycontin to write his show! He had a guest host on Friday who continued the exact same talking points as he had when he was there on Thursday! Who are the writers being paid by the millionaires, billionaires, and corporations...to get their anti-middleclass/poor talking points on the airwaves???

Why is Rush Limbaugh and the rest of the Millionaire's Corporate Nazi Media always getting their talking points in the media? Because they've got all the money to do it! And we don't! So, Rush Limbaugh has millions to put on his fake Ron Poppeil infomercial with shill testimonies every day! The opinions of real people like you and me are shut out of this format! Limbaugh callers say things like, "Rush, I'm a black liberal...but I agree with everything you say!" Do you know any blacks who talk like this? Are these callers fake?

Rush Limbaugh and the Millionaire's Corporate Nazi Media (Limbaugh, Hannity, Malkin, O'Reilly, Savage, Ann Coulter, FOX "news", etc...) hate you...because you're not a millionaire or a billionaire like them! Remember, when they say "We are against helping the poor and middle class, Katrina victims, California Fire victims, Global Warming....", they're talking about them...not you!

What Would The Millionaire's Corporate Nazi Media Do...If Hillary or Pelosi Did This?



Not that I like Hillary or Pelosi (I don't), but imagine if any of the women the Millionaire's Corporate Nazi Media hates, got their hands on pictures of them in Arabic "burka"'s???

Millionaire drug-addict Rush Limbaugh would have to have his illegal immigrant maid working OT over the weekend to score him some extra Oxycontin to make it until Monday! He'd be chomping at the bit so badly!

Michelle Malkin would be updating her blog, ready to post on Monday, "Here's your proof that Hillary/Pelosi/Cindy Sheehan is a terrorist!"

Hannity and O'Reilly would have their entire next week's shows written over the weekend! It would be an easy week for them!

FOX "news" would have 24x7 coverage of the pictures, stating "The 2008 election is over!" They might even have William Kristol on as a guest every single day of the week! (they almost do, already)

You could bet your house, if you haven't lost it already in the recent record foreclosures, that Rupert Murdoch's Nazi NYPost would have a picture of Hillary in a Burka, screaming the headline, "TERRORIST!".

This would serve as a dividing line for the Nazi Media: "Pre-Hillary-Burka-Pictures" and "Post-Hillary-Burka-Pictures"!

But...we'll hear and see nothing of the sort...because it's Laura Bush! Women who aren't part of the Millionaire's Corporate Nazi Media are too smart to do this...

Big Dan's Big Blog Exclusive: Bush's Uneditted California Fires Speech; Bush Says Words At Fire




THE PRESIDENT: Governor, thank you very much. First thing I want to let the people know out here in Southern California is that Southern California is a state. It’s a good state. We’re in Southern California. You have a football team. It’s called the Southern California Trojans. You wouldn’t have a football team, if you weren’t a state. I think they’re named after the condiments. It's very important for those who are wondering about their future to know there's a lot of good citizens all across America. America is a great big land! Americans pray. Prayin’ is good. Southern California prays a lot.

I appreciate the leadership of Governor Schwarzenegger. He’s a governor. He governs. I said earlier when we were at the neighborhood, there's no hill he's not willing to charge, no problem he's willing to solve. And we've got a problem out here, and I appreciate his leadership. I appreciate that he’s a leader and I appreciate there’s no problem he can solve. Problems are bad. We don’t like problems. Fires are bad. Fires are like problems, and problems are bad. Fires and problems are bad.

I do want to thank Senator Feinstein for joining us. I want to thank the local mayors, statehouse folks, the congresspeople for being with us, as well. There’s people in congress. I like when people are with us. People being with us is good. Good people being with us is real good.

Really, it's important for me to come out here and see firsthand the situation. I’m seeing it. That’s why I’m here. And there's no question a lot of people are suffering. I’m seeing the suffering. And there's no question there's been terrible losses. I’m seeing the losses. I also am out here to make sure these firefighters behind me and the first responders know how much I appreciate and how much the country appreciates their courage and bravery. (Applause.)

Firefighters are on the scene and on the front lines. Firefighters on the scene and on the front lines are good. Firemen have red fire engines. The red fire engines go fast. The red fire trucks have bells on them. I love bells. The bells are good. The police have helped maintain order. The police are order maintainers. They maintain order. Emergency medical teams have treated the sick. They always do that. Emergency medical teams are always treating the sick. They’re sick treaters. That’s good when emergency medical teams treat the sick. They’re good at that. That’s good. And our National Guard personnel is providing very important assistance. Important assistance is good. It’s real good when the National Guard personnel is providing important assistance. It turns out when the President shows up, so does a lot of the other brass. I’m the president. I'm proud to be here with General Tuck, who runs the entire National Guard bureau. (Applause.)

General Tuck is a general. He looks like an army guy. He has a uniform. The uniform has stars. I like stars. Stars are shiny. He runs the entire National Guard bureau. That’s good. He looks official. You need to look official when you run an entire bureau. He’s good because he wears a uniform and runs things...and has stars.

All of us associated with the federal government, Governor, are here to make sure that the resources at our disposal are deployed to help you. We’re deployers. That’s why we’re here. That’s why I’m here. I’m deployin’. We're all deployin'. And that's why there's all kinds of people from all different departments at the federal level, to assess the needs, to listen to the concerns, and to respond. And that's exactly what we've been doing, and that's exactly what we'll continue to do. We’re going to continue to see, deploy, respond, and concern. We’re concerners, too. We’ll continue to be all kinds of people from all different departments, doing all kinds of things like concerning, listening to you and responding to you. We're bein' people from departments.

As the Governor mentioned, I did issue an emergency declaration which allows federal agencies across the government to help state and local authorities. The Governor said those words. The words said something I did. He said I did it. Those were the words. The words are sayin' FEMA can provide vital supplies as well as to pay emergency grants to help pay for the cost of firefighting, evacuation shelters, and traffic control. FEMA provides vital things. They help a lot. FEMA helps a lot. FEMA is a vitaler. A vitaler supplier. They supply vital things. I see them supplying vital things.

Our Department of Agriculture and Interior have provided elite firefighters and equipment. As I mentioned, the Department of Defense is in this to help you through NORTHCOM. I don’t know what NORTHCOM is. It sounds official. A lot of guys in uniforms are good at running things there. I think they’re the military. The military has got assets that we can help you with. Assets are good. The guys in uniforms are gonna help you with their assets. General, thanks for coming. We've got a four-star general with us today; he runs NORTHCOM and the reason he's here, Governor, is to listen to you, find out what assets we can continue to deploy to help you. The General has a uniform with stars on it. He’s standing right next to me. He's the guy in the uniform. I like stars.

As the Governor mentioned, yesterday I signed a second declaration to help California's recovery and rebuilding efforts. The major disaster declaration authorizes the release of federal funds for debris removal and long-term assistance to individuals and business owners. The business owners own businesses. That's why we're callin' them business owners. The individuals don't have businesses. They're individuals. People affected by the fires can now apply for assistance for temporary housing and home repair and low-cost loans to cover uninsured property losses. Just like Katrina. You'll be applyin'. Applyin' for things. Fillin' out forms...makin' phone calls. Forms and phone calls help the applyin'. You heard the words I said about Katrina when that happened. Those words were like these words. In fact, they're the same words. They're good words. Remember those words? I hope you don’t. If you do, they were like these words. I say words a lot. I say words a lot at disasters.

Now people here in this part of the world are wondering, is there a number they can call to get help? This part of the world is Southern California. Did you know that? Did you know that you live in this part of the world? Here's the number: 1-800-EAT-SHIT. You want to find out whether or not you qualify for help, federal help, just call 1-800-EAT-HELP or go to the website FEMA.gov. It’s on the internets. The internets are a bunch of tubes. Did you know that? The tubes will help you. The tubes are good. They’re good tubes. And there's a third way that you can find out whether you get help, and that is through a mobile disaster. A mobile disaster recovery center that FEMA's deployed around this state. And Arnold Schwarzenegger's right. These fires are going to go out. I think he's right. Fires go out. The fires will go out because of the bravery of the people behind us. Bravery makes fires go out. People are brave and fires go out. But there's still going to be needs and concerns. Concerns that the fires aren't gonna go out. Did you know the fires are gonna go out? I’ll bet you didn’t know the fires are gonna go out. Even if you knew the fires were gonna go out, I’ll bet you didn’t know they were gonna go out because of bravery and concern.

And the final reason I've come is to let you know we're not going to forget you in Washington, D.C., I’m telling you that we’re thinking about you. That’s why I’m here: to tell you that we’re thinking about you. I’m here saying words. And thinkin'. Thinkin' about you. It’s good for me to tell you that we’re thinking about you in Washington, D.C. We want the people to know that there's a better day ahead. Did you know there’s a better day ahead? The better day may not be tomorrow but there will be a better day. There’s a day tomorrow. There always is. Tomorrow, today will be yesterday. Did you know that? That’s pretty tricky! We think that, when we’re thinking about you in Washington D.C.; that today, your life may look dismal but tomorrow, life is going to be better; and to the extent that the federal government can help you, we want to do so. That extent isn’t a good extent. But we’re going to help you to that extent. And we’re going to think about you…from Washington, D.C...tomorrow...and that bad extent I was tellin' you about.

I do want to thank all the volunteers who have stepped forth to help a neighbor in need. Helping neighbors is good. Would you be my neighbor? I knew you would! It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, a beautiful day in the neighbor…could you be mine? Would you be mine? There's an impressive number of people that have heard the call that one of their neighbors needs help. They heard their neighbors calling for help...just like we're thinkin' about you in Washington D.C...and they heard it. For all of those who are volunteering their time to help somebody get their feet back on the ground, the hot ground, I thank you from the bottom of our nation's heart. I like it when neighbors who hear other neighbors calling for help, step forward and help them. I like that. That’s good. Neighbors are good. Neighbors are those people living near you, but they’re not you.

May God bless those who suffer and not help them before they suffer, not to suffer; may God bless those who are helping the people who are hurting, and not help them not hurt before they are hurting; and may God continue to bless our country as I hurt it, in the name of my Father, his Son, and the terrists. Amen. Thank you. (Applause.)

President Tours Fire Damage...and Says Nothing...As Usual...


Bush's California fire speech transcribed by Big Dan. What I did here, is play the video below and quickly type what he said...what's the fucking difference???

Bush's California fires speech with Schwartzenegger, as written by Big Dan:

(it's funny if you read my transcription first, and then watch the video...OR...funnier yet, if you read my transcription WHILE watching the video...I guarantee you'll laugh your ass off!!!)

Bush:
"Many have been moved, lot of good citizens praying, leadership of Shwartz, got a big problem, appreciate leadership, willing to lead, govt provide help, thank politicians, important for me to see, there's suffering & losses, appreciate firefighters, police maintain order, medical helped sick, proud to be here, resources will be deployed to help you, listen to concerns & respond, feds will help, emergency grants, lots of help, we got a 4-star gen who runs norcom, he needs stuff, rebuilding effort, remove debris, apply for temp housing loans, # to call help: 800-eat-shit, go to website, mobile disaster recovery center, Shwartz is right, fires gonna go out, still needs, we're not gonna forget you, better day ahead, life's gonna be better, we're gonna help ya. Thanks. Neighbors need help, thanks, God Bless, God bless our country."

What's the difference between what I wrote and what he said...what he always says?

NOTHING...is the difference!!!!!!!!! He says the same shit every time, and says nothing!!!!! Does everyone get this by now???????????? What's wrong with you???

HE DIDN'T SAY ANYTHING!!!!!!!!!!

HE DOESN'T SAY SHIT! EVER!!! WAKE UP!!!!!!!

And they play soundbites on the radio! Like, "There was a fire here!" "God Bless!"

CHRIST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He shows up at a disaster, and says things like, "The Police are policing...the medical people are medicalling..." What the...........?????????????

Does anybody get this??????????????????

He actually said, "We got a 4 star general here. From north com.. He's here to listen to you." He should've added, "And he's generalling!"

CHRIST!!!!!!!!!!! Are we all retarded?????????????? Who writes his speeches, a 2nd-grader???

Headlines on CMSM websites say things like, "Bush: There's a Better Day Ahead", "Bush: Fires Are Gonna Go Out", Bush: "We're Not Gonna Forget You", "Bush: God Bless"...sounds stupid..BUT THAT'S WHAT HE SAID! What else are they going to put? But let's stop pretending he said something!

Remember Bush on Katrina? "There's a lot of water here. It's gonna go away. God Bless. I used to drink a lot here in college. Heh heh heh!"

Far be it for ABC to have a headline, "President Bush Talks To Us Like We're Retards"!

Bush At The Fires

Stay tuned for part II of this skipping record...when we find out a year from now, people didn't get the help they needed and Bush's cronies made billions "helping out."!!!

A Vatican insider has confirmed that a fiery image of the Pope was spotted doing the popular dance "the Macarena" at the out-of-control California fires.

They keep playing this commercial during the World Series, which I'm watching right now with the Red Sox smoking the Colorado Rockies in the 6th inning 13-1. Each time they play it, it sounds like Arabs to me! Whaddya tink???

If they do sound like Arabs (which they do), then what the fuck is going on here???

Get LifeLock...or the Terrorists Are Gonna Git Cha!!!


If you were a company that sold something that relied on fear, where would you advertise? You'd advertise on radio programs that promote fear like: Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Paul Harvey. Paul Harvey is an old "Rush-Lite", in case you haven't realized it.

Todd Davis, the CEO of LifeLock, gives out his social security number on a LifeLock commercial on the radio. It's 457-55-5462...in case you want to steal something and charge it to him. I'm waiting for either someone to successfully do that (we'll never hear about it, or LifeLock is sunk) or someone to sue him for entrapment by advertizing his SS# on the radio. I think it's bordering on illegal, if you ask me.

He's smart, because he advertizes on the most on fear-mongering radio shows like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Paul Harvey. On LifeLock's website, they have testimonies from "regular guys" with Navy hats on, etc...throwing around phrases like "protect your family", "thieves", "organized crime". Why no "terrorists"??? I'm waiting for that!

How about, "Terrorists were trying to charge something on my credit card at Toys-R-Us and........."

Paul Harvey, that kindly old self-proclaimed "most honest man in America is "Rush-Lite" mixed in with 50% pimping products such as LifeLock...making his pitches appear to be part of his "Page 1...page 2" news nonsense. He runs right into ads like they're news. "Page 3...Joe Shmoe had his social security number stolen...but he had LifeLock..."

Call me crazy, but everyone I know who ever had their credit card stolen, got their money back. I'm assuming there's some law addressing this. In fact, it just happened to my daughter's boyfriend, and he got all his money back...and he didn't have LifeLock!

Be afraid someone's going to steal your identity...Boo! Listen to Rush, Hannity, and Paul Harvey. They set 'em up (with fear), and LifeLock knocks 'em down!!! It's a match made in heaven!

...and now you know the rest of the story!

Why Does Rush Limbaugh Hate The California Fire Victims and Katrina Victims?


(Warning: The following highlighted link leads to Rush Limbaugh's Nazi propaganda site...bring plenty of anti-bacterial foaming soap & towels)

On Rush Limbaugh's Nazi propaganda release program today, he attacked California fire victims and Katrina victims.

Rush: "...the Drive-Bys, the local Drive-Bys-in-training are exaggerating this (the California fires)..." And he said that's just what they did with Katrina!

Rush: "I've been e-mailing people in Los Angeles. I've been e-mailing friends in Southern California. "Are you in trouble from the fires?" "No, not really. It's not anywhere near us. In fact, a couple people I e-mailed on Sunday didn't even know about it 'til they got back home Sunday night."

Although Rush says it's not happening, he does blame "the environmental groups" for the fires (that aren't happening):

RUSH: "No, it would go in there and clear out the deadwood and the brush and take away the kindling -- and these environmental groups, they are to blame for this. They are the ones that are making these fires "

Listen to Rush! These California fires aren't happening! You're imagining it! His "dittohead" fans believe him!

Rush's "Hitler Youth" caller gets so excited, that he feels...well, just read it:

CALLER: I am very confident in our ability to do just about anything. You said not on to get overconfident but, I'll tell you what, the Republican Party is more, gosh, we're stronger than God Almighty himself.

Rush on Katrina:

RUSH: Well, now, why would you think they would do that, John? We've got examples of accurate and truthful reporting during the disaster that was Hurricane Katrina. (clearing throat) A-hem!

CALLER: Ahem.

RUSH: You know, they tried that during Hurricane Katrina. They keep recycling the old pages in the playbook.

Scarey, isn't it? Heir Rush and all his dittohead followers should take advantage of all the non-existent California fires and throw all the books they can in the non-existent flames!

Why Do Republicans Hate Families Making Less Than $40,000...and Love Millionaires and Billionaires?


The official reason the Republicans and their reichwing brownshirt media noise machine wanted SCHIP vetoed, is because they think families that earn between $60,000 and $80,000 (their false talking point) have enough money to pay for their own health insurance, and should be doing just that.

So, what's their reason for being for the Bush tax cuts for the super-rich? They don't have enough money? They think families that make between $60,000 and $80,000 should pay $12,000 for health insurance out of their budgets instead of for other things they need...but they think millionaires and billionaires don't have enough money and need huge tax cuts?

Republican leader John Boehner's reason for their veto of SCHIP was, "We are putting poor children first." Actually, Boehner is wrong: Boehner and the Republicans put millionaires and billionaires tax cuts first! The millionaires and billionaires the Republicans care more about, received tax cuts a lot more than the entire yearly income of these families ...but they think millionaires and billionaires are the ones who needed more money! Boehner said the Republicans are "...standing on our principle...". Yes, and we all know what that is!

The Republican "$60-$80" talking point is also false. The White House's official statement for vetoing SCHIP was, "some households with incomes up to 400 percent of the federal poverty level, or $83,000 per year...." could afford to pay their own childrens' health insurance. Notice the word "some". Bush isn't lying! Less than 30% is "some"! Urban Institute, a non-partisan think tank, estimated that 70 percent of children who would gain coverage are in families earning less than $40,000. Why do Republicans hate families that earn less than $40,000...but love millionaires and billionaires enough to give them enormous tax cuts?

Why does Rush Limbaugh want these famlies to pay $12,000 for children's health coverage, instead of other things they need?

Why does Michelle "Stalkin'" Malkin want these famlies to pay $12,000 for children's health coverage, instead of other things they need?

Why does Sean Hannity want these famlies to pay $12,000 for children's health coverage, instead of other things they need?

Why do Republicans love to give huge tax cuts to millionaires and billionaires during a time of war, while asking famlies making under $40,000 to "sacrifice"?

Why are Republicans "pro-life"...but against covering that life with children's SCHIP health coverage?

Surprise; Shock...as GOP Sen. Brownback Pulls Out Of '08 Presidential Bid


'08 GOP candidates expressed "surprise" and "shock" at GOP Senator Sam Brownback's announcement of abandoning his presidential bid. The Senator's announcement was held in front of a crowd of 7, including his wife Mary and 5 children. No one knew who the other guy was, but he's been following Brownback around even before he was running for president, and Brownback is in the process of acquiring a stalking restraining order against him.

Rudy Giuliani: "I'm surprised at Sam's announcement. I didn't know he was running for president! Was he in the debates with us?"

Mitt Romney: "I'm shocked! Brownback was running for president? I didn't know that! I bet he was that guy always at the end podium in the debates! I was wondering who that was!"

John McCain: "Who's Sam Brownback??? Is he a Republican???"

Ron Paul: "I was right! I was telling someone the other day, that there was someone running named "Brown-something"...

Mike Huckabee: "Good! I'll be the only GOP candidate with a weird last name! Voters were saying, "I'm voting for that Republican with the weird last name", and I never knew if they were talking about me or Brownback!"

Senator Brownback stated that the reason for his pulling out of the race was due to lack of campaign funds. His campaign has raised $127.10 so far...and used $55 of it: $20 for his taxi ride to his campaign pull-out announcement and $35 to rent the podium from which he made the announcement.

In a recent CNN poll of likely Republican voters, Brownback finished with 0%...finishing behind perennial write-in "joke" candidate Gary Coleman with 3%. The stalker claims he is a "huge Sam Brownback fan", and voted for him in the CNN poll...and was extremely disappointed at Brownback's announcement.

Religious 1-2 Punch Help Red Sox Force Game 7


After being down 3 games to 1 in their best-of-seven series with the Cleveland Indians, the Boston Red Sox trounced the Indians 12-2 and tied the series 3-3, thanks to the Lord and Kevin Youkilis; one of only three Jewish players in baseball.

Winning pitcher Curt Shilling, in a post game interview, thanked "the Lord" for helping him pitch 7 strong innings, giving up only 2 runs.

Schilling: "I thank the Lord for the win, and forcing a game 7."
Reporter: "Does the Lord hate the Cleveland Indians?"
Schilling: "I'm just thanking the Lord for the victory."
Reporter: "What about the Cleveland Indians. Did the Lord want them to lose?"
Schilling: "Well, no one's ever asked me that question before after I've thanked the Lord, but I guess I'm forced to say...'YES', the Lord must hate the Cleveland Indians. Or they would've won, right? I never thought about that!"
Reporter: "Why did the Lord make you lose 3 of the first 4 games?" (Schilling walks away from reporter)

Cleveland Indians starting pitcher Fausto Carmona gave up a 2-out grand slam to the Red Sox J.D. Drew in the first inning.

Carmona: "I loaded the bases with no outs, then got out the next two batters. I thought I was going to get out of the inning without any runs...if Jesus didn't make me give up that grand slam to J.D. Drew!"

Youkilis, also known as the "Greek God of Walks" for drawing a tremendous amount of walks, was in the middle of controversy every time he was on base. He smacked a ball off of Fenway Park's "Green Monster" left field wall and knocked in a run, but was caught in a run-down between first and second base. During the run-down, Youkilis head-butted the ball from the Indian players throwing the ball back and forth, and slid back into first base and was called safe. Head-butting the baseball is illegal; Youkilis has denied the allegations, claiming the Cleveland secondbaseman "purposely" hit him in the head with the ball. The Youkilis head-butt of the baseball was a key play in keeping the Red Sox 6-run 3rd inning alive.

Huge Red Sox fan Dennis Leary told Jon Stewart on the Daily Show that Youkilis was a "sneaky ballplayer" and "walked a lot...no reflection on your people."

An Open Letter To Chinese Buffets


Chinese buffets...will you PLEASE go back to the way you were? Sherlock, Drumbo, and I were going to you for years for our weekly Saturday "Chinese meetings". We loved munching on your CRAMS while complaining about the government and many other things. It was a given, that we would get top quality succulent CLABS, won ton soup, and many bins full of other Chinese treats. You're deserts were good, too!

Why did you have to go down hill and make us have to think of a different place to go each week for our "Chinese meetings"? It's not fair! Can't you go back to the way you were, and just charge more money?

Can't a new Chinese buffet open, and charge more, but always have quality CRAMS where you don't have to wait in line when the CRAM bins are empty? This causes fights, you know!

We love Chinese people, and your CRAMS! We'll forgive you for calling the cops on us that one time! It was a misunderstanding! We'll pay more! Just go back to the way you were! We miss you! We don't want the "#6 Beef With Broccoli"...we want the CRAMS!

There's 2 ways to make more money: Lower the quality, or charge more money. Please consider the latter...WE'LL PAY IT!!!

There's a lot of Mexican restaurants opening up in our area, you don't want us to start going to them, do you?
