An award from my co-workers


Well deserved I might add!

How would you like to wake up to Sue







From the Field Museum in Chicago. The largest complete T-Rex skeleton in the world!

Vietnam

Interesting theory via Instapundit.

Yesterday

In addition to being the erstwhile mattio's birthday, yesterday was the 41st anniversary of the final formal Beatles concert at Candlestick Park (I am not counting the Let it Be session Adam, no paying customers). The last vestiges of appearing in their old suits & costumes would soon be gone as less than 10 months later released Sgt. Pepper.

Cheers to the lads!

Weird Chicago Picture


It is almost that the Cloud is a face by the Sears Tower. I am sober I swear it!

John Edwards is an idiot part 3 million

Via Instapundit. I love these do as I say not as I do Liberals.

We're Number 1!

Apparently America leads the world with per capita gun ownership. While I don't own a gun (and probably should not be trusted with a water pistol), having the government being the only armed entity is certainly more scary than that article. The Democrats took over Congress by electing what is referred to as 'Blue Dog Democrats' from the south who would generally support gun ownership rights. The Democrats have basically abandoned gun control as an issue and it will be interesting to see how this is addressed in upcoming debates.

Happy Birthday Matt!

Top 10 SouthPark Episodes of All Time.

I think they pretty much hit it.

Baby Boomer Immaturity

Via Instapundit. This look like it would be a good read, although I think it is more self loathing than immaturity.

Our legislators at work

From the CT Post. Way to focus on the important things.

Hugo Chavez is an Idiot.

Via NRO.

Jimmy Carter should be supporting this shortly.

Moose Farts

Via Instapundit. Apparently Bullwinkle isn't eco-friendy. If that's the case I should probably be on death row.

Why Tn. did not vote for Al Gore in 2000 (Continuing series)

Via Instapundit apparently CO2 emissions are up in Europe. Well it's Europe so that is ok!

By the way will do some research as to why the Dem's home towns don't vote for them. It must be Bush's fault.

Hot sauce

Bought some stuff from this company recently. Will review shortly.

Elvis

Today is the 30th anniversary of his death. In tribute here is a weird article.

From NRO

Another reason not to go to Europe.

Only in Bridgeport

Bluefish Hunting.

The classic thing is the guy posting as Mystic someone at the bottom of the story. He calls Jose a "brother" and congratulates him in in going after a white person because of Bush, Blah, Blah, Blah. Great.

Mattio

On the ball as usual. Religion of Submission.

More signs that our liberties are in danger

From the NY Sun

As a recently reformed smoker I have no doubt that smoking in an enclosed car with your kids in it is not a good thing. But under no circumstances do I want a Federal, State or Local legislator dictating to me what I do in my own property if the activity is legal. If you are that against cigarettes, criminalize tobacco (and then say good-bye to the death-money i.e., cigarette taxes) that you collect.

Album Recommendation

Endless Wire - The Who

I have to say I thought this was very good. Reminds me alot of Quadrophenia. Rogers voice is a bit shot but for a group that hadn't released an album in 20+, this is not bad.

Finally! My tax dollars put to good use.

Puke Rays! If lawyers concerned with illegal immigrants rights don't like this it must be good.

Dangerous Book for Boys

This looks like it would be a great read. With all the sissification that has been going on the past 20 years, this is probably much needed. This specifically mentions hunting and cooking a rabbit. I specifically remember being in Scouts going to a winter camporee where some Green Berets were giving a demonstration on outdoor survival skills, specifically for winter time. They had a live rabbit which they proceeded to fill, clean & cook over an open fire. The audience of kids was probably between 11-13 at the time. Can you imagine something like that being demonstrated today! As for the final bit of information, one of the Green Berets told us that to use the pelt from the rabbit you would have to cure it. If you did not have the proper chemicals to do that urine would be good.

This was one experience I will always remember.

Kos Coven

A uniformed Soldier was shouted down at the 'progressive' Yearly Kos convention. All the neo-isolationsists & neo-foreign policy realists out there who understandably don't want our troops in harms way really need to take stock as to who they are making common cause with. Remember all the Democratic Presidential Candidates will be at this meeting. This is the main stream of the Democratic party now.

The Big Train

Via Powerline it was 100 years ago today that Walter "Big Train" Johnson made his Major Leagues debut. His 3,508 strikeouts was considered at the time unbreakable but has since been surpassed by 8 other pitchers. I'll hoist one tonight to one of the All Time Greats!

Invade Pakistan?

Barack Obama has recently stated that he might as President invade Pakistan without permission to go after Al Qaeda members in hiding in the border areas there. Isn't one of the left's rallying cries against American war crimes, the pursuit of the Viet Cong into Cambodia without permission? I guess it is ok if a Democrat proposes this type of strategy.
