I don’t know who invented it…

Posted by Wickedpinto on May 22, 2007

but it had to be a man. 

 Apparently Lybrel is a new oral contraceptive, you know other than the old oral contraceptive that men have been trying to sell women on for years, and still doesn’t top the market unfortunately.

 In addition to being a new oral contraceptive it also reduces the instance of menstruation, sometimes completely.  Now I know lady’s you are thinking “this is a miracle drug,”  some guys might disagree.

 While it appears that we can no longer use the excuse of “she’s on the rag” which is to the benefit of women all over the world (except most islamic nations where, really it doesn’t matter, you will just be beaten with 11 guage wire anyways) it still doesn’t teach you how to cook, or not scream at the sight of mice, or wake up your hubby or boyfriend when you see a spider.

 Other than that, it’s one of the best inventions ever.

Did we say the most ethical ever?

Posted by mesablue on May 22, 2007

We meant, the most nutbag crazy — ever.

Gotta hand it to the Dems. Not only have they not kept a single promise that they made in the mid-terms, they are cranking the unethical and the crazy up to new levels.

Most recently John (I’ll take the money — later/ABSCAM) Murtha threatened a Republican House member — on the floor.

From Hot Air:

Powerful Democrat Rep. John Murtha of Pennsylvania threatened to deny any further spending projects to a Republican who challenged him over an earmark, his antagonist [Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) has charged — a potential violation of House rules…


Rogers turned the tables later that night by saying he would propose a reprimand of Murtha for violating House rules…


According to the draft resolution, Murtha shouted at Rogers on the House floor Thursday afternoon for offering a motion last week to expose $23 million Murtha requested in an intelligence bill.


The Pennsylvania Democrat requested the money to prevent the administration from shuttering the National Drug Intelligence Center in Johnstown, Pa. — which sits in Murtha’s district.


“I hope you don’t have any earmarks in the defense appropriations bills because they are gone and you will not get any earmarks now and forever,” Murtha told Rogers on the House floor, according to the draft transcript supplied to The Politico.


“This is not the way we do things here — and is that supposed to make me afraid of you?” Rogers replied.


“That’s the way I do it,” Murtha said.

This week the Dem’s, who if you remember, promised the most ethical congress “ever” — voted not to reprimand Murtha for obviously violating House rules.

AP via Hot Air:

WASHINGTON – House Democrats rejected a Republican bid Tuesday to reprimand Rep. John Murtha, a senior lawmaker accused of threatening legislative reprisals against a GOP member who had crossed him.



Before and after the largely party-line vote, which caused some Democrats discomfort, Republicans taunted Democratic leaders about their campaign promises to run a more ethical and open Congress.


The House voted 219-189 to kill the Republicans’ motion to reprimand Murtha, a Pennsylvania Democrat, Iraq war foe and close ally of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.


Two Democrats — Earl Blumenauer of Oregon and Jim Cooper of Tennessee — voted against killing the motion. One Republican — Tim Murphy of Pennsylvania — voted for the motion to table, or kill, the proposed reprimand.


Murtha, known for his bluff manner and fondness of pork barrel projects, did not dispute claims that he charged across the House floor May 17 to confront Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich. Rogers had tried unsuccessfully to strike a $23 million Murtha earmark — a targeted spending item — for a drug intelligence center in Murtha’s district.

Let’s see, we’ve got a Dem congressman caught with $90,000.00 in bribe sting money in his freezer — nothing happens to him. Pelosi gets the minimum wage increased everywhere except a little island that her contibutors have a big stake in. Feinstein’s husband is tied to more defense spending than we’ve ever seen. An judge impeached for bribery (by congress) who later runs for congress as a Dem, of course, is almost given the chairmanship of an incredibly important intelligence committee. Earmark spending is at unbelievable levels. Murtha’s been a scumbag forever.

Oh, and the Dem’s violated a bunch of rules by taking spring break junkets to exotic beaches on military jets — at $10,000.00 an hour– without including Republicans. Not saying Rebublicans should have gone, they wouldn’t have, members of congress are not allowed to authorize the use of government equipment or funds for trips without making them bi-partisan. A major ethical violation.

The list goes on.

Will anything be done about this?

Not with the inmates running the asylum.

I’d forgotten how absolutely bugshit crazy the Dems can be when they are in power.

Good thing it won’t last very long. They lost the last time when the American people finally said, “enough is enough.”

It’s amazing that the Dem’s could get so many people thinking that way so soon after taking back the reigns of power.

Same idiots. Different year.

Stupid criminal…

Posted by mesablue on May 22, 2007

Dead criminal.

More news from close to home.

A punk and his buddies tried to carjack a 53 year old man in Detroit. They pulled an unloaded gun on the wrong guy.

Man with unloaded gun killed by victim

A robbery and crime spree aided by an unloaded gun came to a halt late Thursday when the gunman met more than his match: a gun with bullets.


Charles Parker Jr., 18, of Detroit was killed when a 53-year-old man pulled out a 9mm handgun and shot the teen, who was armed with an unloaded .22-caliber handgun.


Detroit police are calling it self-defense.


The botched carjacking on Grand River and Prevost came after a string of robberies in Detroit on Thursday, which police said were committed by Parker and four others, ranging in age from 16 to 20.


The robberies began about 8:40 p.m. Thursday at Kentucky and Curtis when a 16-year-old was robbed of his cell phone, a silver chain and his wallet, by at least two of the suspects, police said.


At 9:30 p.m., the robbers attempted to carjack a couple in the driveway of their home in the 19600 block of Appoline, police said. One pointed the unloaded gun at the couple and pulled the trigger.


The teens fled without the car.


Later, police said, the robbers saw a man at a Detroit car wash and tried to carjack him. The one approached with the unloaded gun and the other wielded a baseball bat, police said.


That’s when the man washing his car fired, striking Parker.


Parker’s alleged accomplices took him to Sinai-Grace Hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.


After the shooting, police questioned the 53-year-old man and released him, noting that he had a valid concealed weapons permit.


Then they gave him back his gun.

It’s worth noting that this was reported in the Free Press which is Detroit’s ultra-liberal counterpart to the more conservative Detroit News. Nary a gun grabbing gibe or blame for the gun toting victim in sight.

Good deal.

Code monkey

Posted by mesablue on May 22, 2007

I am in the computer biz, but I am NOT a coder. Thank God. I couldn’t imagine it.

I know there are a lot of you out there and — good for you. I’m sure it can be very rewarding to come up with something elegant in it’s simplicity and portability. It’s just not for me.

I suffer through scripting and I used to have to write network batch files back in ancient times so I commiserate.

So, out of respect for all of the hard working Code Monkeys out there:

Code Monkey think, maybe manager wanna write goddam login page himself!

Heh.

I don’t play World of Warcraft either. I have a life.

h/t Asher, sort of.

The number is low.

Posted by Wickedpinto on May 22, 2007

200 marines volunteer to extend.

I don’t have first hand knowledge of the men serving now, but I think that that number is that number because that was a unit in whole, rather than the thousands who push for continued service.  The individuals who volunteer is MUCH MUCH MUCH larger I would guess.  I volunteered for every mobilization and I was a pogue, and many of those in my platoon, not to mention those grunts I knew who to a one volunteered.

You join, you serve, and everyone wants to do their job, whether it is a pleasent job or not.  as a whole branch the number I bet is damn near 100%.

update:  and really?  is there a better job on the planet?
