...As bored as an Army Recruiter at a Young Republican Convention...

...Would be a great punch line to a joke, no?

Anyway, just wanted to thank all who supported freedom on my blog this holiday weekend. Not many show the intestinal fortitude needed to wear ones heart on their sleeve in our freedom fight; but our numbers are growing.

Show phinky some love, she deserves it.

Willie Pete

If you have a weak stomach stop. Go somewhere else. Elmo has no problem showing reality as it is, pure, and most defiantly disgusting. White Phosphorus. That is what's falling on this poor soul. Our government used it in Falluja. This is what he looked like soon after...

Band of the Week: ThickSkined

Nothing makes me want to listen to METAL and break shit more than wingnuttery. Republicans have a Structureless moral compass. Wingnuts will try to make permanent massive tax cuts to the rich in a week or two, after they slash social services to pay for it. Hopefully this is the Turning Point were Republicans can no longer use tax cuts as the American Pacifier of the rich. NOW BREAK SOME SHIT!!!

ThickSkined is from Dallas and will be playing live Saturday 11/19 at the REDBLOOD CLUB in Deep Ellum, Dallas, TX.

Cutting Welfare to Save Tax Cuts for the Rich

They are doing it on the Floor of the House and Senate as I write...turn on C-SPAN.

UPDATE: Senator Feingold just bitchslapped the wingnuts into another vote on PAY-GO. Or, The pay as you go rule. This would hurt tax cuts for the rich...

UPDATE: Wingnut Senator Sununu just said "so called big oil..."matter of factly

UPDATE: Unrest in the House, BLUE-DOGS are barking and getting applause and wingnuts are complaining about it.

UPDATE: Wingnut Rep. Jack Kingston just casually "misspoke" and called BLUE-DOGS' "lap-dogs" and got boo'd...

UPDATE: Wingnut Rep. Putnam just admitted he has not memorized The Book of Matthew...(the part of the Bible w/ that whole camel through the eye of a needle thing)

UPDATE: That Bitch Rep. Marsha Blackburn is trying to speak. Her voice is cracking...elmo is getting into her head...

UPDATE: Senate hero's are dragging wingnuts into voting

UPDATE: Wingnut Rep. Jim Nussle just reminded us that Republicans have not raised taxes...on the rich...

UPDATE: Hero Rep. Rangel proclaims this debate historic...

UPDATE: Senator Kerry still wears pink ties!

UPDATE: Hero Rep. Richard Neal just earned his bitchslapper merit badge!

UPDATE: The Senate is still considering 60$ billion in federal tax cuts...for the rich. The hero's are still dragging them down. This could take all night.

UPDATE: Hero Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee slaps a wingnut!

UPDATE: Hero Chet Edwards represents Texas...slaps a wingnut!

Elmo is fading fast...will watch...but can't type any longer... VOTE NO ON THIS BUDGET!

Take that you greedy bastards!

The overall budget passed by 2 votes after Hastert made major concessions to get dissenting Republicans to vote yes. All Dems voted NO. House-Senate compromise to be hashed out next month.

Ask the White House

This week on Ask the White House, Karen Hughes. She answered questions like, "Are any other countries pitching in to assist? It seems that the U.S. always steps up to help in these tragic situations, but rarely gets credit for doing so," and, "In what ways is the Bush Administration taking the American Story to the world?" Elmo just wants to know...

Oh How They Dance

So that off year election actually spooked 'em. The Republicans are embracing the Democratic plan for withdrawal from Iraq. They still say, "We are not going to have any timetable." But agree with Democrats that, "2006 should be a period of significant transition to full Iraqi sovereignty, with Iraqi security forces taking the lead for the security of a free and sovereign Iraq, thereby creating the conditions for the phased redeployment of United States forces from Iraq."

Sounds like a timetable to me...

Michelle Malkin Disrespects Grunts on Veterans' Day

I awoke this morning expecting to be uplifted by the overwhelming gratitude for veterans' services on C-SPAN. Instead, I get Michelle Malkin. A woman, who admittedly, doesn't understand why you have to be willing to fight a war in order to support it.

But Lets put that aside for now...

This (mostly deserving of a bitch slap) woman had the nerve to humiliate grunts in the middle of a MOTHER FUCKING GROUND WAR! She gave a polite Dau·mier...smiling a lot, and sighing, then totally disrespected the one part of our military that is the most indispensable. THE INFANTRY!

This holier than thou, I'm smarter than you, uppity, my English is better than yours bitch; had the nerve to say foul language was...

"A sign of intelectual weakness."

FUCK YOU BITCH! Have you ever worked in the desert? You have to get used to sand down the crack of your ass...constantly. You worry about water, bullets, and your battle buddy, not your fucking nials. You don't sleep well, if at all, and your digestive system gives you fits. Your body hurts to the bone and your ballsack collects mass amounts of cheese. You don't get the luxury of bitching, complaining. Your only choise is to get close to perfect or die...and nobody is perfect. Guess what? We cuss a lot! If you think Sailers are bad you've never met a grunt.

We may be 'intellectually weak' you cum guzzling bitch, but we're not stupid. If you had the 'balls' to just train for our job I'd give you a little credit. But you have nothing to offer but words. Fuck words, we need action. And the last thing we need is some skinny, money grubbing bitch telling us we're stupid because we have fuck'n potty mouths! FUCK YOU!

Next time you might want to stop and think before you speak bitch. And if you cant handle the criticism don't join the infantry, we need non-pussies.

(My apologies to anyone I offended...except Malkin.)

Band of the week: Amplified Heat

Meet the Ortiz brothers, Jim, Chris and Gian. They moved to Austin in the late 90's and jumped right into the blues scene. Their brand of the blues was too loud for most night club owners so they struggled to get gigs. Rock and Punk started to overshadow the blues scene, so they started Amplified Heat. They're loud enough to give chickenhawks a Heart Attack; I like that. Now, they may be a little Bipolar, but that's just because their Wagon Wheel fell off in Houston.

See Amplified Heat live Nov 17th at Rudyard's in Houston and Nov 18 at BEERLAND in Austin.

Congressionally Blonde

So I turn on C-SPAN last night (I like to watch the special order speeches conducted after the end of legislative business) and caught Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn's speech. She sounded like a mother teaching a child not to touch the stove when it's hot, but in a stupid valley girl sort of way. Marsha was praising the social program cuts in the proposed budget. She explained that it was important to pay down the debt and not leave it to our children. So school lunches, food stamps, Medicaid etc. all had to be cut to the bone. She never once mentioned rolling back tax cuts for the rich.

Her speech was typical wingnut bullshit; it was her attire that caught my eye. Specifically, the necklace she was wearing. A gold chain the diameter of an average human finger with a big black stone the shape of a heart dangling from it. This woman was talking about cutting programs for the poor to save tax cuts for the rich and she wears a big gold chain with a black heart on it!

Ms Blackburn, Shakespeare would be proud.

Voting Frenzy in Texas

I've been voting for 5 years in the same precinct and never...never have I had to wait so long to vote! For an hour and a half I stood in line and the line did nothing but grow behind me. I saved myself at least 30 minutes getting to my polling station at 5:55pm as apposed to 6:00pm. In contrast, last year's presidential election took 10 minutes at the same precinct. Why?

PROP 2, constitutional amendment that would define marriage in Texas as solely the union between one man and one woman.

I voted NO. I hate bigots of all sorts. Besides, Texas already has a law against gay marriage; but you already knew that.

The radio reported very high turnout on my way home with long lines remaining throughout Travis county. Texas may rank #1 in the number of bigots per capita; however, Travis county is 60% against the bigot amendment. I fear the rest of the state is passing it overwhelmingly.

Goodnight, from a little blue dot in a big red state.

Little Alison Grace Says DA DA!!!!

It took 6 months, 29 days, 21 hours, 46 minutes and sum'od seconds...but SHE SAID DA DA!!!

And not some muffled-maybe-almost-could of said-DA DA. This was a bona fide DA DA! And after a few minutes she gave another DA DA DA! That's right, three DA's in a row! She got excited and DA DA's started coming from everywhere! And then, just before she fell asleep, she gave one last DAAAaaaaaaaaaa. This is real important because you have to use your tongue to say DA DA. I mean...MA MA is easy,(she has been saying MA MA for almost two months now) but DA DA takes some real effort...having to use your tongue and all.


Band of the Week: Broken Teeth

Remember the late 80's? More specifically that demented hair band Dangerous Toys. Who can forget the classic Teas'n Pleas'n. And I know the rest of you thirty-something jackers were Sport'n a Woody constantly back then.

Anyway, members of Dangerous Toys have all went their own way. Guitarist David Fowler has gone country. But luckily lead singer Jason McMaster hasn't changed a bit. His band, Broken Teeth, is just as rock'n raunchy as he was in the 80's. Have a listen to Hang'n by the Skin and Undertaker. Or these tracks from their new live EP, Blood on the Radio...El Diablo, Stick It In and She's Gonna Blow.

See Broken Teeth live today at Red Eye Fly and Saturday at Headhunters in Austin, TX.

It's like I'm 17 all over again! OK, maybe I never grew up. Rock on and have a great weekend to all!

Tom Delay Tries to Pull a Fast One

Bug man was successful in getting District Judge Bob Perkins removed from his campaign-finance trial Tuesday because of his donations to Democratic candidates and causes. It seems Perkins has given more than $5000 to Democrats in the last five years. Delay bitched and moaned that this was unfair and got him yanked from the case. So who will pick Perkins's replacement...

Judge B.B. Schraub. Now, if your thinking Judge Schraub is a big Delay crony, of course, you'd be correct. In fact, he has himself given more than $5000 to Republican candidates and causes. Judge Schraub is the ace up Delay's sleeve.

This is the most hypocritical-shove shit in your face-bastard the world has ever known.

But don't worry, Gun sling'n District Attorney Ronnie Earle said "hold your horses pig fart!" Then shot Judge B.B. Schraub off the bench like a tin can from a fence.

From The Austin American Statesman-

Two days after U.S. Rep. Tom DeLay won a fight to get a new judge in his case, prosecutors on Thursday succeeded in ousting the Republican jurist responsible for selecting the new judge.

Earle said in his motion filed Thursday that Schraub has made more than $5,000 in contributions to Republican candidates, including to Gov. Rick Perry, a DeLay ally, which calls into question Schraub's impartiality in the case.

So Judge Schraub recused himself. YeeeeeeHaaaa! This is getting fun!

Republican Gov. of Texas Rick Perry is Pissed at FEMA

He thinks Louisiana is getting more than Texas. And that is just not fair!

Perry wrote a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff: "Our victims of (Hurricane) Rita are being treated differently from the Louisiana victims of Rita. Natural disasters recognize no state boundaries, and neither should FEMA."

Perry wants extended federal payments for debris removal, planning for long-term housing for evacuees and help identifying convicted sex offenders and violent-crime parolees from Louisiana who are now thought to be living unsupervised in Texas.

Perry warned Tuesday that as many as 65,000 Hurricane Katrina evacuees would face eviction in Texas before Christmas because federal officials have not paid the rent.

Mary Christmas!

Federal officials called the complaints bunk. And added...

Ba Humbug!

Governor Perry has an election coming up with "one tough grandma" fighting him for the Republican nomination. Perry is desperate, so he wont take the blame like Jeb Bush did.
