UPDATE: CUBS WIN!!! NL CENTRAL DIVISION CHAMPS!!!



Back to the Windy City for the weekend. The Cubs will clinch — hopefully. And, I’ll be there. Unfortunately, they won’t. They are finishing the season on the road. Still, it should be fun to hang out and have a few dozen beers in Wrigleyville during the games. Clark & Addison will be crazy when they wrap it up. I was there in 2003, 1998 and 1989. It would be amazing if they could make a run at it this year and avoid the 100 year hype that we’re going to hear all next year.

Then I’m off to St. Louis for a few days of business type stuff and then, who knows — maybe back to Chicago for a playoff game or three.

Oh, and I gots to get me an Italian Beef sammich.

POOCHIE!!!

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 28, 2007

[Bumped by mesablue]

UPDATE: Wow, they’re nearly there! $1800.00 so far. Please go help out Kramer if you can.

A friend of ours (sometimes the AOS commenters are like the mob I guess) has a sick dog, a BEAUTIFUL DOG.

About 3 years ago, Kramer, the dog, was sick, and his pack loved him enough to pay for chemo, because thats just what you do, you care for your pack.thedude.jpg

Kramer, that lovely and loving creature seen above, fell into a relapse of his previous condition, and his pack leaders can’t realisticly afford the treatments that are needed, because they are pressing.

If you frequent the net, if you love dogs, and you can make a donation, of any size (though If I find a common participant of this blog who only donates $.01 I will be more offended than if you don’t participate at all) I would like you to do so.

Thats a BEAUTIFUL dog, I’ve lost pets myself, I’ve seen pets pass suddenly, and slowly, and one family member, though my brothers dog was only a distant niece, her loss hurt me, they are a part of us. 

If you could, if you would, it would be nice if you did, it doesn’t take many tiny offerings to meet the goal.  It’s not like ITIT contributions. 

I’m not doing this out of ego, though I’m linking what is maybe, but not really, “my” place.

I just love dogs, and I’m sure that BMAC loves Kramer, and they deserve every instant together.

Sorry to BMAC, and thanks to ND for bringing this to my attention.

If I could have done anything to bring any of my childhood pets back?  I would do it, well, most anything.

Jones Soda’s latest flavors: dirt, sweat

Ever wonder what the Seahawks’ locker room tastes like after a big game?


Apparently, Jones Soda Co. thinks Seattle NFL fans want to know. The company started taking online pre-orders Thursday for a five-pack of sodas with flavors it says reflect the hard work of professional football players.


Clare Bowles, a spokeswoman for the Seattle-based company, said the four literally named flavors — Dirt, Sports Cream, Perspiration and Natural Field Turf — are “pretty lifelike.”


“Perspiration Soda is kind of salty tasting,” she said, with a slightly higher sodium content than the average soda, with a smooth, “stinky football sock” finish.

What’s next? Dirty Sanchez?

I am not one to dance on a grave,

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 27, 2007

However a great many people will be doing so now because bill wirtz is dead.

I don’t think most hoped for his death, however, I think most hockey fan’s came to the realizition that the hawks would not be able to get the local recognition they deserved, until bill either sold the team (unlikely) or until he died.

 It’s a shame he died, however, his death is probably one of the best things to happen to chicago hockey.

It was DISGRACEFULL how he restricted the team, and ‘hawks fans learned to hate him, so most every Chicago hockey fan cheered his death.

 It’s a shame that he was that STUPID! that noone could see him as a human but as nothing more than an “uncle moneybags” prick in the way he managed the business of the ‘Hawks.

It’s a shame he’s dead, but honestly?  For hockey fans?  thank god he is, he was a horrible horrible owner, without a doubt the worst owner in all sports.

Rest well bill, but nothing that follows has anything to do with you.

be at peace, but also, be alone, the ‘hawks most definately will not be your legacy, seeing as how you went out of your way to destroy them.

OUT.

An AOS Headline if I ever read one.

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 25, 2007

“Female ‘Ninjas’ Rob Richland Gas Station With Sword, Dagger

I don’t know if they invoked cthulu, or if the weapons were made of mythril or adamantium, or if the “Dagger” was actually a cryss, and if their get away car was a sand worm.  All of which I find highly unlikely, but I think right now, This is one of the most AOS-worthy headlines of all time.

 I’m just saying.

Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week

During the week of October 22-26, 2007, the nation will be rocked by the biggest conservative campus protest ever – Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, a wake-up call for Americans on 200 university and college campuses.


The purpose of this protest is as simple as it is crucial: to confront the two Big Lies of the political left: that George Bush created the war on terror and that Global Warming is a greater danger to Americans than the terrorist threat. Nothing could be more politically incorrect than to point this out. But nothing could be more important for American students to hear. In the face of the greatest danger Americans have ever confronted, the academic left has mobilized to create sympathy for the enemy and to fight anyone who rallies Americans to defend themselves. According to the academic left, anyone who links Islamic radicalism to the war on terror is an “Islamophobe.” According to the academic left, the Islamo-fascists hate us not because we are tolerant and free, but because we are “oppressors.”


Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week is a national effort to oppose these lies and to rally American students to defend their country.

Moonbat child abuse

Posted by mesablue on September 22, 2007

Last week I posted about the wacky moonbat teacher who was suspended for preaching veganism and the horrors of meat in his classroom.

Those wacky moonbats

An art teacher removed from the classroom for encouraging pupils not to eat meat vowed Monday not to return to Fox River Grove Middle School until it eliminates milk and all other animal products from the lunch menu.

Well, wacky does not describe this guy well enough. Scary is more like it.

He sent me an email yesterday with the title, Vegan America — Revolt!

Seems we have revolution here in America erupting under our noses and there is not much we can do about it. This revolution pits compassionate children against their uncaring parents. The revolution even has a name, “Vegan America – Revolt!” The revolution was born from incidents surrounding Dave Warwak and his persistent attempts to teach Humane Education at Fox River Grove Middle School in Illinois.


Warwak explains, “The adult meat-eaters in the world no longer have a choice in this matter. This revolution belongs to the children. The children of today are smart and want a better world. They are tired of the shape of things. The children of today deserve better and do not want war, starvation, pollution, death, and destruction. They want and deserve a healthy and loving world. Just ask a child, you will see.” He then instructs those against his ideas to, “Go off in the corner with your roast beef sandwich, while we build a better World. We want the future and we want it now.”


Warwak believes the adults in charge want to hide information from children and that it is the duty of every vegan and animal rights activist in the world to let the children around them know the truth. He proposes telling children wherever they may be and even goes on to give strategies. “It can be as simple as a business card with a message that you slip to children whenever and wherever you see them”. Warwak believes children are the transmission of society and for things to change, we have to be honest with our children.


Vegans, Animal Rights Activist, and Humane Educators have embarked on a major campaign to educate the youth of America. Warwak explains, “We have some of the world’s best minds conferring the connections to Humane Education, the environment, health, wellbeing, truth, school shootings and violence in general, including war and ultimately, our fate”. Warwak might be on to something as we talked with the author of the ‘World Peace Diet’, Dr. William Tuttle, who confirmed, “I think this new idea of giving kids cards with a secret on them is terrific. Let them discover for themselves. That is most empowering. And the ‘secret’ idea is brilliant. Kids love secrets. They know deep down that things are being hidden from them. So much is hidden – not just from the kids, but from the big boys & girls running around calling themselves adults.” Dr. Tuttle goes on to say, “This is the hidden secret root of it all – Warwak has his hand right on it”.


The campaign consists of passing out small business cards to children wherever they may be. “Thanks to compassionate people and their extensive connections all over the world, animal rights groups, vegetarians, vegans, and humane educators will be passing out business cards to children wherever they may be.” Warwak adds, “Groups are hitting the streets, during times when children are most likely to be out and about. Groups are already planning on a full force presence on Halloween. Even vegans who stay home will be passing out vegan candies accompanied by a message of love.” Then Warwak proudly proclaimed, “So far today, I passed out 34 cards!”


The business card’s front reads:


Remember the Santa Claus lie?
One lie is so bad, some people prefer to keep it hidden.
So hidden, some never find out!
Do you want to live a lie?


The back reads:


Go to your favorite search engine.


Look-up “Factory Farming” Look-up “Vegan”


“Naming a rock, a banana, does not make it food”


The Animal Liberation Front has joined in and devoted a full page on their site promoting the campaign. When asked, to explain why he is so passionate about telling children the truth and changing his school into a vegan school, Warwak responded, “I can’t understand why they are fighting so hard against something so good. The World is behind us and prepared to help. There is every reason in the world for the school to go vegan and not one single reason to do otherwise” PETA’s Vice President, Bruce Friedberg is offering to help Fox River Grove Middle School with its transition to a vegan diet “We’ll pay for food for a week, get vegan chefs in to help and consult, whatever”. The “Chicago Animal Rights Meetup Group”, “Mercy for Animals”, and other groups around the world are prepared to step in and help in hopes FRGMS becomes the first vegan public school in America. Could this revolution be inevitable, whether, we wanted change or not?

He’s passing out business cards to children with a “secret” on them?

Ok, this has gone beyond wacky and into dangerous nutjob territory. Not only does this lunatic feel that it is his responsibility to circumvent the rights of parents to raise their children correctly, he is going to use subterfuge and “secrets” to get his message directly to little kids.

It’s restraining order time. This nutjob should not be allowed anywhere near any school, playground or anyplace else children might congregate. If he handed one of these cards to my kids, his main worry would be what to put in the next vegan smoothie because he’d be eating everything through a straw for a couple of months.

Bureaucratic healthcare.

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 19, 2007

Now, remember, that I’m talking about the HEALTH bureaucracy (that spelling looks like shit, and I even looked it up.)

I was in the Marine Corps, I know, I know, “GET THE EFF OUT OF HERE PINTO, WE NEVER WOULD HAVE GUESSED” blah blah blah.

Anyways, I was a “Tech” while in, and my assignments were always rear echelon units, though I did VERY short tours with more advanced units.  (technicaly 2881/5991 are considered 3 ech, sometimes 4, and on occassion “depo”) so we ended up eating a LOT of shit that the 1’s and 2’s just didn’t wanna waste their time with.  (officers assigned with a log unit, or techs with log bases know this) what happened is because of the military bureacracy, the 1st and 2nd ech techs would dump their work onto the 3rd ech.  In general, it’s not that big a deal during practice excercises, however, any unit that rates a 5911/6341, tends to be rather busy, since there are so few of “us” at the time.

 While I was in OKI, I was fresh to the fleet, so I accepted all equipment, thinking that everyone “below” (in ech) was responsible, but later I realized how STACKED my 3rd MRC float was with either maint, or . . . DAMN!!! whats the term?  when you request instructions from the engineers?   The reasons we would request from the base, the float engineers is because the 1’s and 2’s would cannibalize the shit out of equipment, and not document a damn thing about it.

While In Oki, I realized that people didn’t wanna work, because it’s easier for them to “play the game,” (which is actually a false premise, it’s actually MUCH easier to do your fucking job! unless you don’t care what the next guy in line has to do)

“You’re fucked wicked” My WO3 PLT Commander told me, “I know sir.”

“but don’t be a fuck, if you want to recover, learn how to be right.  Or if you want to fuck them back?  Be right.”

“yes sir.”

I was just making noises to make him happy, but it took me a couple more months to realize what he meant.

EVERY bureaucracy is stacked with assholes who think they can bigfoot people from the top down.

That CWO 3, showed me that being right is more valuable than rank.

 Anyways, back to the whole electronics thing (kinda/very, drunk) 

When I came back to cali, I worked on electronics, and I did my rotation of “acceptance” (since I was the only 5911/6331, I was ALWAYS the acceptence authority) during S&R inspections, and I had to inspect the equipment and the cards.

At CSSG-1, I was DISGUSTED!! because pretty much every piece of comm equipment I would open would smell like the ocean, and I would see salt traces on the cards, and me, the court-martialed bufoon had to tell, generaly, staff’s, or gunny’s, cuz it was the SNCO’s who wanted to visit base from wilson, that I wouldn’t accept their gear without a writeup from their commanders.

No Shit, (cuz the legueuners were the worst) I would crack the case, pick a random card, and fan it under my nose.

The legeune guys, almost always brought us water tainted equpment, almost always.

I, in fact remember, speaking to a First Sergeant, (Why is a 1st dropping off gear for anything other than opportunity to hit the clubs, the PX, or the whatever it was we called the grocery store?) “I can’t accept this right now first sergeant.”

“WHAT DO YOU MEAN!!”

(he tried to intimidate me, and, as most of you know, I was courtmartialed, a stupid person ain’t about to frighten me, I went to the brigg for yelling at a woman)

“I mean I can’t accept this right now first sergeant.”

“If you don’t!”

“if you keep up it will be my commander talking to you.”

“GET HIM!”

“It will be a moment.”

I went into the “tank” which is located around the “Vault.” (a part of my MOS.) and I told my PC “I need authorization for this, sir (he was only an MsSgt) because the paperwork is a lie, as is the cause.

“why do you think so?”

“It ain’t just me, it’s (list of names), the cards are fried because they have been in salt water, specifcaly salt water with fish in it.”

“you sure?”

I handed him a particular card, that didn’t just SMELL like salt water, but had a crystalized formation of salt around the exposed copper of the board.

“smell it sir.”

“I can.”

That guy, my PC at the time, fucking tore the SHIT OUT of the 1st sgt.

basicaly he said what we all know “before you lie to my team, at least TRY to clean your traile”

Everyone cheats, but a complacent buracracy (I don’t care about the spelling) means that even more people cheat, and they do it poorly, and more expensively.

I’m not sure what I was at, but I know that there is a parable in there.

If Mothers Ruled the world.

Posted by Wickedpinto on September 17, 2007

I saw it live, and I was irritated as all hell by it, but I didn’t post until I found Allah paying attention to it.

Sally wanted to be meaningful, and powerful from the first word, Oh, she did the “Thank you so much!” but then when she forgot her prepared speech, cuz it looks better if you aren’t working off of notes, and the class act that is a complete idiot in the shape of a woman who gained fame as a surfer girl, a flying somewhat heretical nun, a trashy broad who fled her wedding to hang out with bootleggers and an outright friggen lunatic, decided it was important to state that if women who are mothers (cuz she PLAYS a mother on tv) we need to do away with war by having mothers run the world.

Quick timeline:

Before any girl or woman becomes a mother, she is seen as a piece of ass, and guys fight over her.  Then she becomes a girlfriend, and her man gets into fights over her, then she becomes a fiance’ and her man gets into fights over her, then (this is not a STRAIGHT line, since these motherhood and spousal commitment is no longer a requirement, or a standard) she becomes a wife, and her man, and her mans family, and her mans friends get into fights that concern her, Then she becomes a mother, and her husband, her husbands family, her husbands friends, and her own children (the males) get into fights to make sure that not only is she safe, but also respected.

If women ran the world, mothers or not, it would be a MUCH more violent world, because while the woman doest take part in the violence, it isn’t at all, in the least, uncommon for that woman to be behind instigating the situation that leads to the violence of the men who care about her.

Helen, of FRIGGEN TROY!

One of the greatest epics of violent conflict is based on a womans insoucient disregard for duty to the men around her, and the fundamental conflict men have when surrounded by women, not because we own them, but because we love them.

Also Bebe’s boobs destroy society.

Maybe for the sake of peace, we shouldn’t think about how to be rid of men in the reproductive process, but rather women.  The Tleilaxu seem to have a rather simple life on their homeworld.

Or better yet?  How about we give up this self serving idiotic accusation that war is an abheration, rather than an ultimate conclusion?

“give peace a chance.”  We do, everytime we are not at war, but whenever we engage in warfare, we are told to give peace a chance, when those demanding that “peace” a more common aspect of life than war, aren’t willing to give war a chance.

Sometimes, you have to punch, before you can flee, sometimes you have to accept violence to make a friend, and sometimes, you have to kill the mofaku’s who are trying to kill you.

And how CALM! and PEACEFUL of Sally to shriek “shut up” twice before rambling like a drunkard, only to finish up about how peaceful mothers are, when, you know, one of the most offensive things you can say during reasoned discourse is “shut up” without cussing or insulting a “mother.”

Update:  I left out the part about how “The Best Actor in a Comedy Series,” was the best part of the night.  I don’t think Steve Carell’s running up on stage was planned, but it was hilarious how all three reacted, also, if the vid hits the innertubes, Steven Colbert mispronouncing Steve Carell’s name made me laugh out loud, just like the mispronunciation of Catherine Heigl’s name earlier in the show.

I don’t like their politics, but they ARE some funny friggen guys.

Update:  Yeahp, every mom is a pascifist.

GREAT UPDATE:  THAT “Makes Me Mad” I guess women really DO inspire pacivity, other, than the fact that DROOPY becomes violent.

I’m just say’n.

Global warming, you fickle thing…

Posted by mesablue on September 16, 2007

Saturday’s record chill earliest here in 117 years

Autumn paid an early visit to much of the Midwest Saturday as a multitude of temperature records fell by the wayside.


The city’s official 39(degrees) record low at O’Hare not only broke the old record of 40(degrees) for Sept. 15 set in 1985, but it was also the city’s earliest in the season sub-40(degrees) reading in 117 years since a 39(degrees) low on Sept. 13, 1890. Some other record lows set at nearby locales included Rockford (35(degrees)), Springfield (35(degrees)), Moline (36(degrees)) and Madison (32(degrees)). Just to the west, both Cedar Rapids (31(degrees)) and Dubuque (32(degrees)) experienced their earliest freezes on record.

It was COLD last night.

When is this global warming thing going to pay off? I’m doing my part by driving a big ol’ gas guzzling SUV, but this is taking too long.

Where can I buy some carbon debits?

I do remember the Herculoids, but I only link it cuz Forged wanted something to do with rhino blast horny’istic visuals.

Really, this was a completely bizzare premise, but you know animals that can blow shit up is cool.  You get the chicks with their love of animals, and you get the boys for their love of blowing shit up.  In the final analysis, it doesn’t change the fact that this is an absolutely horrific fusion of cutesy blowing up of shit.

I can’t link the whole series, but here is a long link.

Thank you Forged for being a dork.

This is such a bad representation, and an even worse cartoon.  I blame forged, cuz this IS “the Herculoids”

Do something good today

Posted by mesablue on September 14, 2007

Wake Up America has this:

Send a Marine an E-mail

From: Colonel Simcock, USMC


“US Marine Colonel Simcock, the commander of USMC Regimental Combat Team 6 in Iraq, is asking for 6,000 positive emails to his Marines.


That’s one email for each Marine in his RCT command. COL Simcock is concerned about the effect of the negative barrage that those Marines are getting through the electronic media.


RCT-6lettersfromh@gcemnf-wiraq.usmc.mil


“If you’re reading this email, then you can probably click on the address, type a few words, and then hit “send” to be all done.


It doesn’t have to be the Gettysburg Address. Something as simple as “Hello, Marine. We thank you for what you’re doing.


You are in a noble task. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Best wishes & get home soon” is more than sufficient.

It will only take you a moment. Please let our brave men and women in The Marines know that you appreciate the very hard work that they do every day to protect each and every one of us.

Update: The Fightin’ 6th Marines excellent blog is – here
