I feel so.....proud.....

UConn Law students hold a ghetto-style MLK Day party and then PUBLISH THE F*CKING PICTURES ON THE INTERNET.
If these are the future lawyers, I'm no longer concerned with tort reform.

Just watched Mike Judge's latest film, "Idiocracy."

Fantastic. As you may know, I believe that Mike's earlier work, "Office Space," is the finest film ever created. I went into Idiocracy with high hopes.

While Idiocracy is not quite up to the level of Office Space, It still did not disappoint.

The movie is set around an Army corporal and a hooker that were mistakenly kept in suspended animation for 500 years. Given the dumbing down of society, they awake as the smartest people on the planet and set about saving the world.

The social satire is phenomenal, with everything base and crass of today taken to its most extreme.

Unfortunately, it's not difficult to believe that we're actually on the course laid out in the film.

I guess, though, that the true lesson of Idiocracy is that Rupert Murdoch and the gang at Fox are actually a bunch of P-C pussies. Fox decided to kill the film and not release it to theaters widely or advertise it at all. I guess the story hit too close to home. (Although, I didn't see any muslims, so I suppose we won that one...) Maybe that was the problem?

One Stop Vehicle Care

For all your vehicle care needs.

I've been using Amsoil products in all my vehicles for several years now and have been very impressed with their ability to safely extend the oil drain intervals as well as provide exceptional protection for all moving parts. Now Amsoil is also carrying the full line of Mother's appearance and restoration products.

I have recently upgraded to Dealer status and have started a website to allow others to purchase Amsoil products through me.

The link is:

One Stop Vehicle Care

Stop by. Check it out. You won't be disappointed.

I guess you get what you pay for...

I love my electric company. DEMCO. That's Dixie Electric Membership Corporation to you outsiders. My power bill has been about $22 per month for the last few months.
I guess someone around here dropped a fedora, though. The first time in two weeks we've had 2 days in a row of decent weather and the power goes out.

Oh well, at least it's 55 degrees.

It's been too long. Here's an updated list.

For those of you who haven't been here the whole time, I posted a list I entitled: "People Upon Whom I Wouldn't Pee If They Were On Fire."

First list

Updated list

Here's the latest.

Bike Cell Bill Killed...

From - A red-faced New Jersey lawmaker is taking a two-week break from posting bills after enduring a heap of ridicule for a bicycle cellphone ban, something he admits was bad legislation. Read the full story here.

Thank God. Now he can get back to outlawing squirrel eating.

Oh Lord. The Garden State's at it Again.

Instead of asking pertinent questions about, say, why these people have to eat this stuff so often, New Jersey DEP Issues a warning stating that people around Ringwood should curtail their consumption of Squirrel to two servings or less per WEEK.

What a week.

I've actually received personal responses from John Derbyshire AND David Frum in reference to small email notes I sent them.

I guess it doesn't take much to make me happy, but I think it's pretty cool nonetheless. :-)

Boy. Those politicians in New Jersey are tackling the toughies...

Legislature set to crack down on cell phone use while bicycling.

Tex Williams, this isn't what you had in mind...

Louisiana enacted a state-wide smoking ban on January 1, 2007. Totally stupid. It was legislatively imposed and no votes for or against were cast. Only benefit I can see is it is very easy to find a table at most any restaurant.

Now, New Jersey is going so far to try to outlaw smoking in your own car. Sheesh.

And the lefties are worried about Bush moving us into a police state? Riiiiiiight.

Smoke! Smoke! Smoke!(That Cigarette)

Now I'm a fellow with a heart of gold
And the ways of a gentleman I've been told
Kind-of-a-guy that wouldn't even harm a flea

But if me and a certain character met
The guy that invented that cigarette
I'd murder that son-of-a gun in the first degree

It ain't cuz I don't smoke 'em myself
and i don't reckon that it'll hinder your health
I smoked 'em all my life and I ain't dead yet

But nicotine slaves are all the same
at a pettin' party or a poker game
Everything gotta stop while they have a cigarette


Smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette
Puff, puff, puff until you smoke yourself to death.

Tell St. Peter at the Golden Gate
That you hate to make him wait,
But you just gotta have another cigarette.

In a game of chance the other night
Old dame fortune was good and right
The kings and queens they kept on comin' around

Aw, I was hittin' em good and bettin' 'em high
But my bluff didn't work on a certain guy
He kept callin' and layin' his money down

See, he'd raise me then I'd raise him
and I'd say to him buddy ya gotta sink or swim
Finally called me but didn't raise the bet!

--Hmmph! I said Aces Full Pal -- I got you!
He said, "I'll pay up in a minute or two
But right now, i just gotta have another cigarette."


Now the other night I had a date
with the cutest little gal in any state
A high-bred, uptown, fancy little dame

She said she loved me and it seemd to me
That things were sorta like they oughtta be
So hand in hand we strolled down lovers lane

She was a long way from a chunk of ice
And our pettin' party was goin' real nice
And I got an idea I might have been there yet

So I give her a kiss and a little squeeze
Then she said, "Travis, Excuse me Please
But I just gotta have a cigarette."

Boy, why are all these cars heading right at me?

Pilot notices something odd when there are no lights on runway.

When everything in life is coming your way, you're probably in the wrong lane.

This I'll have to see to believe...

Call me Thomas, but I hope this sticks.

I don't think this is what Jello Biafra had in mind....

Holiday Inn Cambodia

Lyrics to Dead Kennedys song:

So you been to school for a year or two
And you know you've seen it all
In daddy's car thinkin' you'll go far
Back east your type don't crawl
Play ethnicky jazz to parade your snazz
On your five grand stereo
Braggin that you know how the niggers feel cold
And the slums got so much soul

It's time to taste what you most fear
Right Guard will not help you here
Brace yourself, my dear

It's a holiday in Cambodia
It's tough kid, but it's life
It's a holiday in Cambodia
Don't forget to pack a wife

Your a star-belly sneech you suck like a leech
You want everyone to act like you
Kiss ass while you bitch so you can get rich
But your boss gets richer on you
Well you'll work harder with a gun in your back
For a bowl of rice a day
Slave for soldiers til you starve
Then your head skewered on a stake
Now you can go where people are one
Now you can go where they get things done
What you need my son:

Is a holiday in Cambodia
Where people dress in black
A holiday in Cambodia
Where you'll kiss ass or crack

Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot, Pol Pot [etc.]

And it's a holiday in Cambodia
Where you'll do what you're told
A holiday in Cambodia
Where the slums got so much soul

Cut the bull, Rudy...

Just watching the finals of the Bull Riding event from Madison Square Garden on -VS- (Used to be The Outdoor Channel). The announcer just interviewed Rudy Giuliani about what he thought of Bull Riding's first try at taking the Big Apple. Rudy was gracious, of course and then the announcer asked him if he'd like to state he was running for president. He lightly side-stepped the question, but said a few things about exploratory committees.

He's running, and he's going hard after the southerners. You heard it here last.
