I went to a Broadway show last night with the fam and strutted round Times Square a bit…..ah I love this City!

Sunday …off to the U.S. Open!

The man who doesn’t relax and hoot a few hoots voluntarily, now and then, is in great danger of hooting hoots and standing on his head for the edification of the pathologist and trained nurse, a little later on.

Sometimes it’s important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it’s essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow.

If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day Weekend.

G.I. Joe..the remake! now: not American

Thursday, August 30th, 2007

Who needs A Real American Hero? Not Paramount or Hasbro it seems. The studio’s live-action feature film version of G.I. Joe will no longer revolve around a top-secret U.S. special forces team but rather an international operation.
What Does G.I. Joe Stand For?

So why the changes? Hasbro and Paramount execs recently spoke about the challenges of marketing a film about the U.S. military at a time when the current U.S. administration and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are at a low-point in global polls. When a studio makes a film as expensive as G.I. Joe will likely be, they want to know that as many people as possible around the world will want to see it. In other words, G.I. Joe — “A Real American Hero” — is a tough sell.

Tinseltown strikes again.

Hmmmmmmmm. Notice the colors Paramount and Hasbro…um…I believe they are Red, White, and Blue. Look again wouldya.

They kinna remind me of these colors, which is what the doll was intended for in the first place. Patriotism.

Big shots at Paramount and Hasbro can join ranks with the other apologists and self hating Americans.

What does G.I. Joe stand for:
Government Issue.
G.I. Joe, Real American Hero.

What will it now stand for:
Global Integrated Joint Operating Entity”

Kinna …sounds like an assembly line automaton of sorts, or mebbe some weed-smoking ex hippie Lefty, don’t it.
hippiecouple.jpg

Of course they are missing the entire point of what G.I. Joe is about. It began as a toyline to support the regular American military marine22.gifman…something their children..(yes, you PC’ers..the “boys”!) could play with, and learn to respect and even love. marine.gif

Perhaps his counterpart…the nurse which was created for the “girls” to play with can be transformed into a suicide bombing Muzlim chick..would that satisfy Paramount and Hasbro?

Can hardly wait to the ahem…. remake of Patton.
What will he be?..An A-rab rock thrower or perhaps a Nazi with a cause…no wait howzabout a French general who of course wins the Global war on terror with diplomacy and shmoozing with the Izlamofacist thugs. iranani.gif

None of these cowboy Americans who actually believe in fighting the enemy…. How tacky of us.
soldieraniiraq.gif

Perhaps Paramount and Hasbro oughta inform this Marine from the 3/5 Lima company who carries his GI Joe action man figurine as he patrols the city of Fallujah huh.

Shame on them. Cowards.

Stephen Sommers is director of the shameful flick.
Shame on them!
Lorenzo di Bonaventura will produce G.I. Joe along with Hasbro honcho Brian Goldner. Sommers and his partner Bob Ducsay will also produce.

Please call, or Fire off a letter or email my friends.

Keep America alive.

SaY no to HumoR if ure Muss-lim, that is.

Wednesday, August 29th, 2007

‘Get a copy of the Ko-ran and you’ll always get a seat on the bus. Add a rucksack and sandals, and you can drive the damn thing.’

OK..That’s funny right.
No no no says Doobai.

Stand-up Sean Meo has been prevented from performing in Du-bai after upsetting Mus-lims.
Protest forces comic from Du-bai gig

Police had been alerted to jokes he cracked about the Kor-an and the Ar-ab language in an attempt to stop him entering the country for a show tomorrow night.

Fearing the local press would whip up a frenzy of protest against Meo, his agent and the organisers of the gig decided it would be safer if he didn’t perform.

Meo’s agent said: ‘It was a mutual decision between us. There was a small but still unacceptable risk to his safety.’

Laughter is an intelligent form of release for these tensions. It helps break down racist stereotypes by laughing at them.’

We, here in the West..well ya see..We don’t get our panties into a bunch so quickly and um…….we actually believe in laughter.

Especially our ability to laugh at our selves at times.
Needless to say, this takes self esteem and inner strength. (hint hint)
Why, Norman Cousins, laughed himself all the way back to health.

Yea, we want those endorphins released into our bloodstreams.


Hit us with that psycho-neuro-immunological system body building, serotonin.

Oh wait. No no no.

Out of cowardly Fear that ahem…some nameless groups would “whip up a frenzy of protest”…the comedian is iced, deep-sixed, canned.

Can someone provide an exact translation for :
“whip up a frenzy of protest”…What does whipping up look like..
and what is a frenzy anyway?

And who exactly are they so dang skeered of.

Some female bomb breeder with 7 kids (with a 8th on the way) who will predictably grow up to be ignorant knuckle-dragging murderers, and bomb some innocent Americans or Israelis some day?
Is she the one we’re all so skeered of?

Or is it the male (if we can be generous enough to call them that) jeehadi ranters and thugs with their old-school Jew and America hatred with his lies and misplaced indignation.

Du-bai’s constitution provides for freedom of speech, but in practice the local media is heavily regulated, and foreign publications are censored before distribution.

Ha. Pick a State..any A-rab State.
No matter how deep you dig, there ain’t no pony in either pile.

————————————–

Prime Minister John Howard’s GutS

Tuesday, August 28th, 2007

Asserting that Australia has been built on values based on “Judeo-Christian ethics,” Prime Minister John Howard’s government has introduced a new test for would-be citizens.
US Should Follow Australia’s Example

The move comes amid concerns about extremist views among some Australian Mus-lims, and at a time when some small political parties are pushing for immigration — and Mus-lim immigration in particular — to be on the agenda ahead of elections due later this year.

The booklet says these values are based on “Judeo-Christian ethics, a British political heritage and the spirit of the European Enlightenment” …

Last year federal Treasurer Peter Costello, often viewed as a possible successor to Howard, told foreign-born Mus-lims that if they could not accept Australian values or wanted to live under sha-ri’a, they should leave.

BooYaahh!

The distinguished scent of national pride in action.

Ah yes..can ya hear it already?…Shh..Listen………
Accusations of “racism”, “bigotry” and “xenophobia” : the hallmark weapons of the Lefty Marxists.

These labels are used to throttle dissent. They are slung far and wide with no regard for those being accused of the charges…as long as its their “oppressed group of choice”, who gets all the pampering.

The Izlamos and their thug crew, CA-IR,( the unindicted co-conspirators of terrorism) have jumped on that bus with zeal.


And……We’ve all seen the nearly bullet-proof lethality of this tactic.

People are scared of Muzlims. #%$$ing Scared.


Let’s at least be honest bout if friends.

WaPo refuses to publish the latest in a series of cartoons , because their muzlim staff didn’t deem it approriate?!
Washington Post, Other Newspapers Won’t Run ‘Op-us’ Cartoon Mocking Radical Is-lam

A popular comic strip that poked fun at the Rev. Jerry Falwell without incident one week ago was deemed too controversial to run over the weekend because this time it took a humorous swipe at Mu-slim fundamentalists.


Yep. Just keep hittin that snooze alarm Leftards……….go back to sleep.

The last cartoon fiasco stirred the cry of victimization from Muzlims worldwide. Have we forgotten that too?

Think the Washington (Com)Post or any other paper would think one and a half times before publishing this?

Or………this?

But wait. Um…when were the news conferences, and rallies by (the imaginary) “moderates”, to protest the endless litany of atrocities performed by people who act supposedly in their ahem..”peaceful” religion’s name?

Did I miss the admonitions and denunciations.

Have I failed to notice the clear denunciations of al-Qai-da or HamASS, of Wahha-bism, of Darfurian genocide, of honor killings, female genital mutilaion, endless misogyny, suicide bombs, or 9-11, just for starters?

Nah. This is more like it:

No cryin, no raging over that.
At best, we get a vacuous, tepid disclaimer from a phoney im-am, if even that much.

But whining bout Izlamo-phobia and victimization? Always.

Well guess what Leftards. Yea, you.
The anti-war, anti-America crew who have made very interesting bedfellows with murderous fascists on the banks of the Euphrates.

Most suicide bombers are Muzlim.

Nearly all suicide bombings happen to be against non Muzlims, until FAT-ah and Ham-ASS decided to show us their true colors.

Nearly all of the “antisemitic” anger and incidents in England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Europe and the Middle East against Jews, just so happens to be perpetrated by Muzlims.

Izlamo-phobic?..Ha.
It’s called reality testing Sparky.

Ya oughta try it sometime.

RogeR Federer

Monday, August 27th, 2007

Hemlock. A crowbar to the knees. Locusts. To most tennis fans, these might seem like the only ways to topple Roger Federer, the three-time defending U.S. Open champion and arguably the greatest tennis player of all time.


Five Ways to Beat Roger Federer
As the U.S. Open gets under way, we offer five perfectly legal ways to take down Roger Federer.

Y’all know what a tennis freak I am.
I’m gunna take these ideas to heart. Let us analyze shall we.

1. Defense.
OK..I can do that.
However……..My spectacular defense might involve throwin my racket in the direction of his barely visible, piercing forehand.

2.. Backhand.
Hmmmmm. My two handed (why can’t I ever hit topspin) backhand against his consistently ferocious one-handed backhand?
Yea. If I use a baseball mebbe.

3. Show Your Emotion.
That, I can do. Yea. I can rattle his cage eh. How do I look with mah fists all pumped huh.

4. Bore Him.
So, let’s see. I don’t use my sneaky drop shot, my stupendous lob, or my wicked slice…i just keep hittin the same shots over n over again?
Will that bore him sufficiently?
How bout I jus read him a Lefty liberal’s blog instead………

5. The Power of Positive Thinking.
Yea yea. It’s all bout the body language and the ‘tude’.
Got that covered. Heh.

There it is, a recipe to derail the world’s best. Easy, right? Ha. Bollettieri offers a more sure-fire tip. “Take him to a restaurant,” he says, “and put a little hot tamale in his food.”

I think I jus bout got it covered.Sooooooooo…….Look out Roger.

On second thought…….Hot tamale anyone?

GoT TapE?

Sunday, August 26th, 2007

Quick-thinking passengers and crew members managed to subdue a deranged man who tried to open an airplane door thousands of feet in the air on a flight to New York yesterday.

Psycho tries to open jet door in air

“There was a lot of panic,” said passenger Bobby Vigil, who sat next to the man for most of the flight and later helped restrain him with duct tape and seat belts. “He tried to open the back door of the plane. He really wanted out at 30,000 feet.”

Vigil said his rowmate left his seat to go to the bathroom in the front of the plane and briefly tried to open the cockpit door. The man, whom he described as Asian and about 20, then returned to his seat, only to get up 15 seconds later, go to the back of the plane and attempt to open the cabin door.

The man, whose name was not released, attempted to bite the tape off his hands and feet. Extension belts were used to keep him in place as the plane prepared to land, Vigil said.

Dang. It’s a good thing that Vigil, our “John Doe” , was so vigilant!
crazyani.gif

Forget passports ..it’s high time we institute mental health exams and sanity tests for passengers. crazyani3.gif

Thus far, the psycho is being described as “Asian”, and ahem..his name has not yet been released.

Duct tape:
I always knew there were never ending uses for duct tape.
heh.lol.gif

Fixing broken tail lights on a vehicle.

Reattaching that rear view mirror.

Holding up that exhaust pipe (though it may not last very long..heh). bang-head-selfd.gif

Patch ripped clothing.

What…waxing?… ewwwww. lol3.gif

Band-Aids for really big cuts.

Wallpapering your house (may be more expensive, but well worth it for the resulting sophisticated, shiney new look..ha). laff.gif

Toilet paper?

Seat belts that’ll REALLY keep the kids still.

Holding that stubborn car hood shut.

Practical joke toilet paper replacement.

Orrrrrrr…………
Taping annoying people (like this psycho) to walls, floors, ceilings, or airplane seats.

Passengers will not go down quietly anymore.
Lawsuits?… Bring em on!

Thank you Bobby Vigil for being a typically resourceful and courageous American, for subduing that ahem..”unnamed Asian”… and saving the day.
BooYahhh!

Firefighter Joseph Graffagnino, R.I.P.

Thursday, August 23rd, 2007

Where was I today sweet friends?

FDNY Announces the Deaths of Firefighters Joseph Graffagnino and Robert Beddia

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta announced on August 18 the deaths of Firefighters Joseph Graffagnino, 33, of Ladder Company 5, and Robert Beddia, 53, of Engine Company 24.

The firefighers died of smoke inhalation while fighting a fire at the former Deutsche Bank building, an old, 41-story skyscraper which was damaged by debris on Sept. 11 and which was being painstakingly and slowly dismantled.

I attended the funeral for Firefighter Joseph Graffagnino, 33, of Ladder Company 5, who died in the fire at the former Deutsche Bank building, near Ground Zero, on Saturday. Joseph is survived by his wife, Linda, and two children, a 4-year-old daughter, Mia, and an infant son, Joseph.

Mayor Bloomberg ,Governor Spitzer, and Fire Commissioner Nicholas Scoppetta tried to ease the pain.

But………What did I see, you ask.

I did not only see men.

I saw little boys,..with memories of big red trucks, red engines, sirens, excitement and, yes, even…. danger.

I observed men who have seen so much more death than most, yet spend their entire days – saving lives.

I visualized these men crawling through dark and choking halls, climbing on roofs through driving snow, creeping in basements, hot with searing heat.
Peering into closets where young children may hide, under a bed, where a puppy may lie. Moving ever so slowly across a weakened floor………looking for someone..anyone..who might still be there.


I noticed big, manly arms imagining just how many small bodies they have clutched in those very arms…. to safety.

I overhead conversations between firefighters, joking, back slapping, sighing, and sharing…..
Men who don’t just preach about love and brotherhood.
They live it.

I set eyes on those who stare in the face of death just to save a life they do not even know, and when told how “special” they are, they answer simply: “It’s my job.”

Firefighter Joseph Graffagnino:


You answered one last bell, but ..
Fret not.
An eternal flame will forever warm your name.

Quickie Update!

I knew we broke out the champagne too soon.

NEW YORK — A planned Ar-abic-themed public school in Brooklyn has prompted polarized reactions. Critics warned Monday that students could be “indoctrinated” with radical Is-lamic beliefs and supporters called such statements “racist.”

Groups Rally For and Against Planned Arabic-Themed Public School in Brooklyn
New York Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) said the school’s children could be “indoctrinated” and warned in a statement that “establishment of an Ar-ab school is a misguided and dangerous idea.” He wrote a letter to Schools Chancellor Joel Klein to protest the school’s opening.

As I posted, ranted about earlier:
No Madr-ass-a? Poo!
The tumor still grows in Brooklyn.

Congratulations Libs for creating, inside America, a new generation of candidates for Jeehad.

Joel Klein, Chancellor of the New York Department of Education should be fired pronto.
Mr. Joel Klein, Chancellor, New York City Department of Education, 52 Chambers St., Rm # 320, B4, NY, NY 10007

Mayor Bloomberg should re-think his American and Jewish identity and the survival of his very people.

israel-flag-coffin-war-ge1.jpg

The “Kha-lil Gib-ran Intern-ational Aca-demy.” ?
Nice goin on the taqi-yya. Gibran was a Maronite Christian and a benign pacifist.

Using this name misrepresents and defames the very man himself.
Using the name of the famous Lebanese poet, who is a Christian, to give the impression that the school has nothing to do with Izlam , so..er….if the school has nothing to do with Izlam, why did their original principal (who was subsequently sacked),wear a veil and sell “Inti-fada” t-shirts huh.


Too bad they “found her out” before she had the oppurtunity to “teach” eh.

In-ti-fa-da. Let’s see, that’s the an Ar-abic term for (the contrived people who like to call themselves) “Pale-stinians”… uprising against Israel.
Nah. Nothin radical here folks.

Imagine the concept even.
Perhaps we shoulda opened a German public school to explain the Third Reich too huh.

New York City, the site of the worst terrorist attack in our entire history as a Nation, and the Libs and self hating Jews prostrate themselves with deference and in homage to accommodate and perhaps even train and groom future radical Muzlims who will behead all Americans along with them.

Thank goodness to StopThe Madrassa for waging this battle for us.

Since when did it become acceptable..(hello ACLU?) to publicly support religious schools with separatist groupthink activities which perpetuate ghettoization, marginalization and radicalization.

Ah, yes the Leftards supporting a madr-ASSa.hippieaa.gif

It’s not insufferable enough that we must endure the baseless, and despicable verbal abuse daily visited upon President Bush.
stickout-tongue.gif
Now we must listen to them sing praises of A-rabic, publicly funded “schools.” What next?

insaneani1.gif

Indeed, anyone who steps foward who is forthright and unashamed, to remind us about this latest travesty to be foisted upon New York and New Yorkers..(which will ultimately affect our entire country) gets slammed.
Those, however,with their phoney, self hating zeal for tolerance and..ahem..”diversity”, are cheered and lauded while they effectively obliterate the very culture that gives them the right to do so.
