Good News From The New York Times

The ultimate goal of climate legislation — be it the bill that the House passed last year or the bill that died in the Senate last week — is to align the incentives better, so human ingenuity can be harnessed to fight global warming. The bills would increase the cost of emitting carbon, thereby giving companies reason to emit less. Absent that, the best bet seems to be that emissions will keep rising and the planet will keep getting hotter.
That cheers us up, & gives us reason to continue existing, in the hope we'll still have the strength to drown some of them in the rising waters. Fuck you, short-sighted ignoramuses!

Vatican Still Ruining Children's Lives

On the radio:
The latest is that a court-ordered study in Italy has warned of “important risks” of dying of  for people who had resided at least 10 years within a nine-kilometre (5.5-mile) radius of the radio station’s antenna towers near Cesano, about 12 miles north of Rome. A Rome judge ordered the report in 2005 as part of an investigation into a complaint filed in 2001 by Cesano residents who alleged health hazards posed by the electromagnetic waves.
“There has been an important, coherent and meaningful correlation between exposure to Vatican Radio’s structures and the risk of leukaemia and lymphoma in children,” the report said, according to the daily La Stampa. The charges are so serious that there’s talk of indicting some Vatican Radio officials on charges of manslaughter.
Well, that's a start.

America’s Best Deer Cartridge

If you want to fire up the team in deer camp this fall, start a discussion about religion, politics—or deer cartridges. In all three, everyone has an opinion, and none of them are wrong.

For the sake of discussion, assume you are just starting out and need to select that first deer rifle. The first question you have to ask is, what caliber should it be chambered in? Before we can answer that question, it must be determined what it is you expect that cartridge to do for you.

Naturally, the key when making your final choice will revolve around where you live and hunt most. Those who hunt mostly in thick forested areas have different needs from those who hunt the wide open spaces of the West. Before we move into a discussion of which cartridge is the very best all-around choice, let’s talk about unrealistic expectations and debunk a couple of old wive’s tales.

Full story: America’s Best Deer Cartridge

How many Americans will be in "deer camp" this fall? Not very many. Most Americans (Tucker Carlson included; can you imagine the little sissy w/ a weapon?) will be in cities & suburbs, not getting drunk & waving their shrunken manhood (& still big GUNS) about at homo-erotic campsites.

Did They Now?

Censure The Confederates

Got a big ha-ha from Zack Wamp (R-Antebellum) & his call to vote or "separate."

If not the sedition laws, at least Wuss-o-crats could censure this reactionary buffoon.
The Constitution, Article VI:
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.
Congressman Zach Wamp (R-TN):
I hope that the American people will go to the ballot box in 2010 and 2012 so that states are not forced to consider separation from this government... Patriots like Rick Perry have talked about these issues because the federal government is putting us in an untenable position at the state level.
Fine Christian gentleman that he is, no doubt Wamp swore his oath to defend the Constitution "so help me God," with one hand on the Bible and the other raised to Heaven. By breaking an oath sworn in such terms, he has violated the Third Commandment (the Second, if you're Catholic): "Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain."

But let's leave Wamp's perjury and blasphemy to his own conscience (if any) and concentrate on his political apostasy. Wamp, and Perry, and much of the Tea Party wing of the GOP with them, have chosen to stand with Calhoun and Jefferson Davis on the side of nullification and secession. How anyone, having done so, could then have the effrontery to appear at a Lincoln Day dinner is beyond my poor powers of comprehension.

If the Republicans found time on the Congressional schedule to denounce MoveOn over the "General Betray-Us" ad, surely the Democrats could find time to censure Zach Wamp -- who, unlike MoveOn, is subject to Congressional discipline -- for violating his oath of office. If all the other Republicans want to vote in favor of sedition, bring it on.

This does not require the consent of the leadership. A resolution of censure, as an exercise of one of the privileges of the House, is a privileged motion. Can we find someone to offer it?
Bringing this about would be worth writing or otherwise harassing your elected representative.

Secret Archive Gives Grim View of Afghan War

A six-year archive of classified military documents to be 
made public on Sunday offers an unvarnished, ground-level picture of the war in Afghanistan that is in many respects more grim than the official portrayal.

The secret documents, to be released by an organization called WikiLeaks, are a daily diary of an American-led force often starved for resources and attention as it struggled against an insurgency that grew larger, better coordinated and more deadly each year.

Ending it all: the threat to the entire universe

It has been called "the ultimate ecological catastrophe", but even these strong words fail to convey the true horror and finality of a grim kind of natural disaster known to physicists as "vacuum decay".

Forget pandemic viruses that wipe out humanity, asteroid strikes that devastate life on Earth and even black holes that devour the planet. Vacuum decay leaves the entire universe not only lifeless, but without any hope of life for ever more.

Vacuum decay, which is happily only a theoretical prospect, occurs when part of the universe is knocked into a more stable state than it exists in today. This creates a bubble of "true vacuum" that expands at the speed of light. As the bubble grows, it reduces the energy locked up in the vacuum of space and rewrites the laws of nature.

In 1980, the late Harvard physicist Sidney Coleman published calculations that showed for the first time that vacuum decay was eternally terminal. He wrote: "One could always draw stoic comfort from the possibility that perhaps in the course of time the new vacuum would sustain, if not life as we know it, at least some structures capable of knowing joy. This possibility has now been eliminated."
Theory. So enticing, so disappointing.

Zack Wamp is a known moron:
Rep. Zach Wamp (R-TN), who is running in a heated three-way Republican primary for governor of Tennessee, has a dire warning about the new health care reform law: If a new Congress and president aren't elected in order to repeal the bill, states might just have to secede.
"I hope that the American people will go to the ballot box in 2010 and 2012 so that states are not forced to consider separation from this government," said Wamp, who has also promised to refuse to implement the law at the state level if he is elected, in an interview with the Hotline.

NEW YORK (AP) — In a July 20 story, The Associated Press reported about the reopening of the store that inspired the Soup Nazi episode on “Seinfeld.” The story said the store charges $20 for an extra-large cup of crab bisque. It should have specified the extra-large serving comes in a quart-size container.

Wise Words From

Click, chump-ass suckahs!


Michele ("Crazy Shelley") Bachmann. What is she saying? Essentially, she & her "caucus" refuse to listen to any criticism of, or vouch for, the T.P. & its organizations, or individuals, or their actions, or any signs, billboards, or anything. The Tea Party Caucus is there only to receive the T.P.'s ideas. (Not their signs or actions, those mean nothing, y'hear, nothing?)

Ringleader Chris "Tweety" Matthews deserves credit for steering himself away from himself, although the tingling leg he's had for Rep. Bachmann since he got her to skree that the media should investigate Congress for "Americanism," or lack thereof, is amusingly self-serving. Good job on receptacle, too, Chris. (Not perfect, however. Isn't being a "receptacle" biblical code, "servant-leadership" style? We'll leave this to one of our intrepid readers; our time is money, & none of those lefty bastards have jobs, as we all know.)

John ("Waste Of Skin, Far's We Can Tell") Heilemann. What was his purpose there?

Bourgeois Parliamentary Democracy
& The Liberals Who Love It

According to liberal theory, elections are the means by which “the people”, having heard and considered the policies of the various parties and their leaders, get to make their decision on the next government and its program. This mythology of “popular sovereignty” had already suffered a body blow with the June 23-24 political coup that deposed the elected Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, before he had completed even his first term in office. Now it is being further undermined by the election campaign itself.

The most significant event of the campaign’s opening days has been, not the announcement by the major parties of their policies and program, much less the clash of ideas and argument, but the wave of boredom, revulsion and, in some cases, outright anger that has greeted the endless series of empty slogans trotted out by the party leaders.

Launching the federal election campaign last Saturday, Prime Minister Julia Gillard used the phrase “moving forward” at least 39 times in a press conference lasting 31 minutes.

Questioned about her repeated use of the mantra in a television interview on Monday, Gillard could only respond with another series of hackneyed phrases, declaring that “moving forward” expressed her optimism about the future and reflected her view that the best days of Australia lay in front of it, not behind.
All cliché, all the time.

History Lesson

Revolutionary fervor of 1918:
London, July 20 -- Nicholas Romanoff, ex-Czar of Russia, was shot July 16, according to a Russian announcement by wireless today.

The former Empress and Alexis Romanoff, the young heir, have been sent to a place of security.

The message announces that a counter-revolutionary conspiracy was discovered, with the object of wrestling the ex-Emperor from the authority of the Soviet Council. In view of this fact ["and?" — Ed.] the approach of Czechoclovak bands, the President of the Ural Regional Council decided to execute the former ruler, and the decision was carried out on July 16.

The central executive body of the Bolshevist Government announces that it has important documents concerning the former Emperor's affairs, including his own diaries ad letters from the monk Rasputin, who was killed shortly before the revolution. These will be published in the near future, the message declares.

Watering Hole Up-Date

In our boozier days, Ye Coach & Horses was the nearest post-adolescent meeting place, actually the only place a man or woman could get a shot on Sunset Blvd. between The Cat & Fiddle & the Sunset Strip.
Say good-bye, according to a press release, via Franklin Avenue.
Ye Coach and Horses has lost its lease and is being evicted thanks to the owner of Samuel French Bookstore who owns the property. After 74 YEARS as a Hollywood nightlife institution, the bar will be forced out at the end of the month.

At this time, the owner and management of the bar is locked in a legal fight with Samuel French over an eviction notice served on July 1st.

So many celebrities of film, television and music have called Coach and Horses home over the past seven decades including Alfred Hitchcock, Richard Burton, Richard Harris, Peter O'Toole, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Spacey, James Gandolfini, Quentin Tarantino, Drew Barrymore, Michael Keaton and Alicia Silverstone. It would be a shame and a travesty to let this establishment slip away without a fight.
And it would put you all out of work, possibly more of a shame than the loss of someplace where Kiefer Sutherland may once have taken a whiz before drunk driving.

Our fondest memory of the dump was the night we met our then-girlfriend there for a drink, Ye C&H being about halfway between our respective residences, & after two drinks started to drive to our then-bunker, only to turn (the wrong way) down the only one-way street in Hollywood, resulting in a DUI arrest by a motorcycle cop lurking on hooker patrol, & trip to the Wilcox Hotel for GF. Which caused us to walk to her place, buzz her husband from the front door & tell him we had to go pick up the car, get some cash at Ralphs on Sunset & bail out the wife. (Good thing that in those days US$35.00 cash could get a DUI suspect released.)

One other memory, the owner (Bob?) who would fill a 12-oz. glass to the brim w/ white rum & sip at it all night. Mixed drinks are for wimps.

Vatican Releases New Rules for Sex Abuse

But the document made no mention of the need for bishops to report abuse to police and doesn't include any "one-strike and you're out" policy as demanded by some victims' groups.

The document also listed the attempted ordination of a woman as a "grave crime" to be handled by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, just as sex abuse is. Critics have complained that including both in the same document implied equating them.
Say, need some help sorting out your feelings on boys & women, churchmen?

Is it not about time we dropped diplomatic(?) recognition of Vatican City & imprisoned all the priests, bishops, cardinals & other RCC employees as unregistered agents of a foreign government? And confiscated all Church property? C'mon, who's w/ us on this? 'Fraid of lightning bolts? Or Opus Dei?

A Very Serious Argument
From A Very Stupid Person

R. Emmet Tyrell, Junior, has an item in the rag he edits defending fox hunting as an essential liberty.
The English-Speaking people love liberty. I thought of this the other day when I read a piece in theWashington Post about the revival of fox hunting in Britain and the desire to legalize it once again. Ian Farquhar, an English hunter, leads the piece by saying that when the 2004 ban on fox hunting went into effect, "I felt -- we all felt -- they were spitefully taking away the very essence of our liberty."
And they were so "spiteful"! Feelings were hurt. (Not to mention foxes.)

Whine louder, R. Emmet. They can't hear you in English-Speaking Oz.

Peter ("Iraqi Blood On His Hands") Beinart On The GOP’s Phony Diversity

The GOP’s basic problem is that many Republicans equate Christianity, or at least Judeo-Christianity, with Americanism.
Christ on two crutches, the Goofy Old Party has more than a few basic problems.

We understand that politicians on rare occasions pander, & several have stuck to their "principles," yet P.B. doesn't doubt these battlefield conversions:
There’s no reason to doubt the sincerity of their conversions. But both also seem aware that maintaining the non-Western religious traditions of their birth would have imperiled their political careers. In 2007, when Congress overwhelmingly passed a resolution recognizing the Hindu and Sikh festival of Diwali, Jindal abstained. Before running for governor, Haley noted that her family attended a Sikh Temple as well as a Methodist Church, but today she studiously avoids any reference to being born Sikh and as the campaign has progressed, her website has been updated to stress in increasingly emphatic terms her devoting to Jesus Christ. That’s hardly surprising given that the co-chairman of one of her Republican gubernatorial rivals circulated an email claiming that Haley “ can’t seem to make up her mind about her faith.”

Possible Good News,
Not That One Should Hold One's Breath In Anticipation

From LAObserved (their emphasis) quoting ESPN The Magazine's Molly Knight:
Not one source was surprised when the split was announced." They hated each other from the moment they set foot in Los Angeles," says a former high-ranking Dodgers official. "There was a saying in the front office that the three worst days of our jobs would be when Vin Scully died, when Tommy Lasorda died and when the McCourts decided to split. There was never any question it was gonna go lethal."
Fucking social-climbing assholes. (And knock on wood w/ Vin Scully dying, OK?)

Oh, the good news?
* Also Wednesday: Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon, tired of hearing Frank and Jamie's lawyers bickering over money, said he might have to order the Dodgers sold to resolve the couple's pre-trial squabbling.
Granted, the chance of a not-asshole purchasing the team is highly unlikely. But:
In the six years he's owned the Dodgers, Frank has borrowed an estimated $390 million against the team, Knight says.
Mostly to finance their six (or so, can't be arsed) local houses. They also seem to have just given Dodger salaries to their mutant offspring. No new owner could be any worse. (You could look all this up in the L.A. Times Sports section, if you gave a damn, but we know you don't.)

Just for the alliteration, from D. Weigel.
One of the more jarring passages in Rick Perlstein's "Nixonland" is his recounting of a popular myth that went around Iowa in 1966, the year of the conservative backlash against the Great Society. The myth was that black gang members on motorcycles were going to head from Chicago to ransack Des Moines. Reading this in 2008, it sounded preposterous, the kind of thing that no one could believe in the country that was about to elect Barack Obama. But Kelly, under the guise of journalism, is working to create a rumor like this in 2010. Watch her broadcasts and you become convinced that the New Black Panthers are a powerful group that hate white people and operate under the protection of Eric Holder's DOJ.
See also, too:
Sept 2, 1965 - A month after race riots in the Watts suburb of Los Angeles, Reed Benson, Utah John Birch Society coordinator and son of Apostle Ezra Taft Benson, writes to Birch Society Members in Utah: "It is common knowledge that the Civil Rights Movement is Communist controlled, influenced and dominated. . . . Our founder and guide, Mr. Robert Welch, has instructed us that when necessary we must adopt the communist technique in our ever present battle against Godless Communism. It is urged that in the coming weeks the Utah Chapters begin a whispering campaign and foster rumors that the Civil Rights groups are going to organize demonstrations in Salt Lake City in connection with the forthcoming LDS conference. . . . A few well placed comments will soon mushroom out of control and before the conference begins there will be such a feeling of unrest and distrust that the populace will hardly know who to believe. The news media will play it to the very hilt. No matter what the Civil Rights leaders may try to say to deny it the seed will have been sown and again the Civil Rights movement will suffer a telling blow."

Really, is "compassionate" conservatism suddenly resurgent? Does anyone think that it "means" any more than (just for fucking example, mind you) "Axis of Evil?" Or another phrase associated w/ Frum's former paymaster, G. W. Bush: "Mission Accomplished?"

Seriously, has anyone seriously taken "compassionate conservatism" seriously since ever? That conservatism must be prefaced w/ the attemptedly ameliorative alliteration of "compassionate" tells us all we need to know, dunnit?

And who's writing off every unemployed American? Oh, right, most of the compassionate Republican members of the Senate.

Special Weasel Award: "support for research and experimentation to discover if maybe after all there is something that might work even a little better". Could he be any vaguer? It's no wonder he wrote for Bush.

Utopia Moronia

Project Uranus announces:
the serious problems that face our modern society: unemployment, violent crime, replacement of humans by technology, over-population
They've already solved one problem.

And good luck w/ this shit:
The Venus Project presents a bold, new direction for humanity that entails nothing less than the total redesign of our culture.
Might as well wish hard to grow a pair of wings & fly to the moon. If you're so damn smart, why haven't you grasped history & human nature?

Crazy & Stupid

Harry Reid is simply boring Mormon-dull. Crazy dumb-ass confused moron ninny Sharron Angle is exciting & amusing.

Which reminds us of someone we knew in 1968, who (although of the Afro-American persuasion) intended to vote for George Wallace because he figured if G.W. were elected it would make the racism & general right-wing shit very clear to the public & lead to REVOLUTION!!! Ah, misplaced faith in the American public.

That said, Angle (& Rand Paul) in the United Snakes Senate, where they might think they'll be safe screeching all the crazy shit they so desperately want to share w/ us would not be the worst electoral development in history. If the fucking Democratic Party would just repeat everything the twin terrors of lunacy say, clearly & slowly so that Americans can understand ... Naw. Wouldn't make a dime's worth of difference, as Wallace used to say.

More Mel. What a sick fucking fuck.

Not to forget his father the Holocaust denier.

Wasn't Us!

Couldn't be. We took a shower just yesterday. Dig the police calls.

Although we certainly expect to end up like that. Hope we'll have more than a whiskey bottle for a weapon.

Better News On The Morbidity Front: Anti-Semitic Sci-Fi Author Dies

Although we've enjoyed some of this jerk's books, while noting a certain glibertarian element to some of his typing. we didn't know he was a holocaust- & climate change-denier. (Well, why stop w/ denying just one thing? We could speculate about early on-set Reagan's Disease, too.)

One of those creepy English types who come to the United Snakes for the "free market." Apparently J. P. had one going in bullshit.

Rot in hell, Hogan. We hope your death was long & painful.

Dead Fug Makes Variety

Tuli Kupferberg finally got sick enough of you fucks to check out. And it was reported in Variety. Wouldn't have expected that when the Fugs first hit the big timedrew off-beat media attention in the fabled (for shit) 1960s.

See & hear all. And a recent-ish NPR story.
NOTHING!!Not a gawd-damn thing.

Who wants 'em? (Would have been "Today's Pictures" if we hadn't just lost the best hrs. of our life to video manipulation.)

Targets Of The Wk.

We'll start w/ the Heritage Foundation, who have kindly directed would-be bombers to their Washington, D.C. location:

People familiar w/ the English & Latin langauges will recognize reversal of the words "via" & "from," another excellent reason to stop these clowns in their tracks. Get back to us at the beginning of next month, we may have a couple hundred bucks for Ryder truck rental or a couple of sacks of fertilizer.

Cowardly weaklings unwilling to defend freedom & liberty from the feudal interests at the Heritage Foundation may be nervous about blowing the dump up. If so, look & listen to the fascist they sent to Hardball, & tell us there would be something wrong w/ dragging this smirking asswipe out of the building & crippling him for life w/ our hammers & sickles. Then we could all laugh at him because he was a lazy cripple who wouldn't work, & tell him: "No entitlements, gimp!" Turnabout is fair play.
If only they knew what we went through to get this damn video. Not on the MSNBC site (Fuck you, assholes. Heritage call you up & ask you not to post it?) so we had to record it from the second daily rebroadcast, then it took two yrs. to upload from the DVD & cut, then the Nazi Assholes™ at YouTube™ wouldn't take it, nor would Bugger™'s video loader, so we had to do it again; as we type, we're advised that it's "processing." So far, that's indicated Bugger won't be picky: If it is being picky, it advises so immediately. It would be just swell if it would also advise what it's being picky about, but we ask too much of our corporate overlords as is.

Later: Still processing. At this point, we begin to suspect that nothing will ever happen. (We started this item at 1849!) How much patience do the politicians & digital overlords think we have? We'll tell them right now: Much, much less than they think.

Much later: Someone will pay for this. It won't be us, & it won't be cheap!

0210 THE NEXT FUCKING MORNING:Please excuse the living fuck out of us for the less than perfect quality, & the fact that the YouTube™ video editor is shit. We're so damned sorry.
