That about sums up the situation.

Why Punish LA Times and WSJ Severely?

Many liberals as well as most of the MSM have been asking the questions "Why are Conservatives so quick to want to strip the press tags of the New York Times Slimes, but not WSJ or LA Times? They claim that it is because the NYT is adamantly liberal, and therefore an enemy, while the editorial page of the WSJ is staunchly conservative.
But then they fail to tell you that the LA Times is VERY liberal, as well as everything aside from the WSJ's Editorial Page. Granted, "Opinion Journal" and "On the Editorial Page" are apparently yet to comment on the breaking news, the fact is that I don't believe the move is politically motivated, or should be done to the severity of revoking Press status. I think the two papers should be fined heavily if the government had asked them to not publish the article, but aside from that nothing. This is my reasoning:

The LA Times and Wall Street Journal DID NOT "Break" the story. The New York Times gathered the information, wrote the article, was told it was a matter of national security, and was asked by the government not to publish the article, then did it anyways. The LA Times and WSJ merely regurgitated the information. Taking away the Press credentials of the LA Times and WSJ would be like closing down the designer of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge for its design flaws and then additionally closing down the company who paved the road on the bridge and the company who made the steel support wires for merely working on the bridge.

As I said before, if they were asked by the government not to run the article, then they should face a hefty fine, but the New York Times is a REPEAT OFFENDER. Abu Ghraib, NSA Wiretaps, and now this were all broken by the New York Times. The man in the photo with the dogs at Abu Ghraib that evoked such a stir admitted he was NOT the man in the picture, despite giving the Times an interview claiming he was, the NSA wiretaps had been going on in one way or another for decades before the Bush Administration was tapping them, but the Times "failed to remember" that fact, and now this (Which by the way led to the arrest of two terrorists) is the third time. And in baseball, and most states, after 3 strikes, YOU'RE OUT!

My 1 year co-op ends today! I will spend the rest of the 2 months of summer I have traveling and relaxing, then at the end of August, I'll be heading back up to TTU (And posting should increase somwhere in there!).

Damnit...I deserve a Best Week Ever.

HPV Vaccine

I'm so sick of hearing all these people who declare that Merck's new HPV vaccine will "entice children into having sex because they will feel like it is risk free." Are these people so ignorant that they forget that genital warts are not the only thing cured by this vaccine (Only two of the targeted strains of the 4 cause genital warts)?

HPV causes all kinds of warts. Common, Plantar, Flat, Filiform, and others. I myself have had bouts with a wart. They live on the skin, and spread by contact of the skin. I eventually got rid of the wart on my foot with Mediplast strips, but it took months. And in trying to get rid of the wart on my foot, it spread to my hand. Containing this virus is like trying to destroy 100% of microbes in your house, it just doesn't happen easily. 75% of women worldwide are projected to get HPV in one way shape or form in their life, and with close 100% of all the 500,000 world wide cases of cervical cancer being credited to HPV-16, 18, 31 and 45, not giving girls this vaccine is like saying no to an AIDS vaccine. It just shouldn't be done!

This vaccine needs to be made readily available, and at $300-500 for the treatment, it needs to be covered by Insurance as a preventative measure.

Happy Father's Day!

Today, normally I would be going out to eat lunch with my dad after Church, then play softball with him on our team. But that's not the case this year. I will go to church, but as for the things with my dad, nope.

CAUSE THEY'RE IN THE ROCKIES WITHOUT ME!!! That's right. My parents are on vaccation this week, so we will be celebrating fathers day that weekend instead.

Love you dad, and get back home safe!

And mom, since I didn't say it on here then, Happy Belated Mother's Day as well (We went out for Mother's Day! I didn't forget it!)!

Marine Kumbaya

The AP and BBC are going crazy about a song that is on You Tube now. The song has one verse quoted in the stories:
"As the bullets began to fly, the blood sprayed from between her eyes, and then I laughed maniacally."
Now granted the laughing thing is a bit odd, but let's look at the WHOLE VERSE shall we?

Then she said that she wanted me to meet her family,
But I, well I couldn't figure out how to say no,
Cause I don't speak Arabic so,
She took me down an old dirt trail,
And she pulled up to a (sarganti?)
And she threw open the door and I hit the floor.
Cause her brother and her father shot her.
Turkah, Turkah, Mohammad, Jihad
Shurkah, Shurkah, Bakalah (sp?)
They pulled out their AK's so I could see.
And they said, Turkah, Turkah, Mohammad, Jihad
Shurkah, Shurkah, Bakalah (sp?)
So I grabbed her little sister and put her in front of me.
As the bullets began to fly,
The blood sprayed from between her eyes,
And then I laughed maniacally.
Then I hid behind the TV,
And I locked and loaded my M-16.
I blew those little F#$%ers to eternity.
And I said, "Turkah, Turkah, Mohammad, Jihad
Shurkah, Shurkah, Bakalah (sp?)"
They should have known they were f#$%in' with a Marine.

The song isn't about Marines killing Civilians as the "Rush to crush the military" News would love for you to see. It's about a girl who leads a Marine into an ambush of INSURGENTS.

Here's a GOP and College exclusive. The AP/CAIR/BBC/Far Left version of "Hadji Girl:"

I opened up the door,
They shot me until I hit the floor
It must have been a whole damn clip.
Then they put on their long black slip.
They grabbed me by the hair,
As they held my head high in the air,
They were laughing maniacally,
Saying, "Turkah, Turkah, Mohammad, Jihad
Shurkah, Shurkah, Bakalah (sp?)"
But I deserved to die, because I'm the bad guy.
Those insurgents are just misunderstood.

Light Posting

Yes...I've been a bit light on the posting lately. I'm training the new co-op to replace me since my sentance...I mean time is up as of next Friday. After that I will be traveling...a lot! I will be visiting with the College-ette for some time, then going to New Jersey/ New York to hang out with my Brother, The Man, and my sister. After that I will be in Memphis for the NHRA Mid-South Nationals (Be sure to look for pictures!), then I'll be moving back up to school in Cookeville, and at the end of August classes start back.

And somewhere in there I'll post...I PROMISE! But in the mean time excuse the sparatic posting.

OH! But be watchful on caption contests that I like to enter:
OTB (and Gone Hollywood!)
The Right Place
Wizbang (when I remember)
And a few others.

You Call Kerry A "War Hero?"

John Kerry "served" in case you didn't hear him touting it all over the place about how he received 3 Purple Hearts (from wounds no worse than a rose thorn scratch) and a Bronze Star in his 4 months of service. And then he went home, threw away his medals, and claimed horrible attrocities that service men in Vietnam had done as a part of the Winter Soldier ordeal. This apparently gave him "War Hero" status for going, serving a little time, then kicking his fellow soldiers to the curb.

Now let's hear the story of a REAL War Hero. One that most likely won't use his service to vault him into a political office, or really much more than a couple lines on a resume after he returns. I'm talking about Spc. Steven Clark, from Fitzgerald, GA. This man has been shot by insurgent bullets on 3 seperate occasions. He was shot in the back, on the shoulder, and on his calf. Plus he was wounded by a grenade on his back and his leg. He has recieved his 3 purple hearts (a fourth coming from teh grenade), and a Bronze star with valor. But he isn't cutting and running from Iraq. He REFUSES to leave his fellow soldiers. He actually has said that his wounds were a mistake and were punishment for letting down his fellow soldiers. And there are many others.

So you're telling me that you wanted a coward who cut and run as soon as he could to lead this country? Some one needs to inform the frenchy-liberals what a real man looks like to lead this country. Because it sure doesn't look like John F. Kerry.

OK, so I'm not the cutting edge of Technology, but when my computer starts to show its age, I like to give it a bit of a face lift.

My PC was running an Nvidia GeForce 4 MX420 64 MB graphics card. When I got the computer for a graduation gift (Computers are more useful than a car at college) in May of 2003, it was a VERY good card. But now, 3 years later, I got Doom 3 for Christmas one year, and having to run it at 640x480 resolution was pretty humiliating. So from then on I wanted to get a new graphics card. Well, I finally got it! a GeForce (Hey...I like Nvidia!) 6200 256Mb card. I played a game of Age of Empires 3 and it ran it a lot quicker than it used to, so I'm quite pleased. And at a mere $60, it was well worth the money.

Watch Him Get Blown Up!

From Centcom:
Watch the video from the plane as the bombs drop on Zarqawi.

H/T: Sgt Gehlen


United States forces have confirmed the death of Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi!!

"“Ladies and Gentlemen, Coalition Forces killed al-Qaida terrorist leader Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi and one of his key lieutenants, spiritual advisor Sheik Abd-Al-Rahman, yesterday, June 7, at 6:15 p.m. in an air strike against an identified, isolated safe house." - Centcom

H/T: Sgt. Gehlen

Some reactions from the left (via Kos):
"Bush's idea of justice is bombs falling out of the sky?" - Johann
"I suppose Osama will be caught in October,...just in time for the November elections." - Really Liberal Democrat
(via Think Progress)
"like, this will make any difference. Abu Ghraib, Fallujah, & Haditha created 10,000 replacements." - Ho Chi Mihn

Hah, and this is great, from The Storms Blog,
"Folks at Think Progress can’t find it within themselves to think this is any good news at all. We can see they really do support our troops."

And for those who say Abu is was not a big player, do I have to remind you of the videos and such where he called on the death of American troops, as well as people who are simply in the opposing religious sect?

Inconvenient Update

Remember the liberal distortionism I reported on about A Convenient Truth's Opening Weekend making just over $70,000 per all 4 of the theaters it played in.

Here's another bit about that.
The average cost per ticket at those 4 theaters?
$11 PER TICKET! I thought it was outrageous that the theater by my parents was $7.75 per ticket.

Let's see then, take $70,332, and divide it by $11 per ticket. All of 6,394 people per theater. That about 25,575

X-3, let's say averaged about $8 per ticket (some at the $11/ticket, others as low as $5/ticket). That means from the $102 MILLION the movie made, that makes for over 12.84 MILLION PEOPLE who went to go see it.

Yeah...Inconvenient Truth was a reeeeeal hit....
