IS IT JUST ME?

or has anyone else noticed that with press announcements about raising the defense budget again (up 45 percent since 1998), that the pentagon officials are just offhandedly tossing in asides that we'll need that extra money to fund military conflicts not with the terrorists...but with china. And why arent reporters questioning that further? They just let a penatgon spokesperson slip that in and dont catch it or elaborate on it???

So anyway, China here we come, we finally figured out a way to get out of debt! It's like a bank heist except really really really big. Oh, and really really really practical, cuz bank heists ALWAYS work, and after all we sure could use a victory lap after kickin so much dust ass in Iraq.

I think it's safe to say we can ALL start suckin each other's dicks. This is great coffee.

I'll get the link very soon

in the meantime theres this...

SAO PAULO, Brazil (June 10) - Republican candidate John McCain may have used his song in the U.S. presidential campaign, but veteran rock 'n' roller Chuck Berry has no doubt whom he wants to see in the White House next year.

"America has finally come to this point where you can pick a man of color and that not be a drawback," the legendary 81-year-old guitarist said of Barack Obama, who clinched the Democratic presidential nomination last week and would become the country's first black president if he wins in November.

"It's no question, myself being a man of color ... I mean, you have to feel good about it," Berry, himself a black pioneer in the 1950s music scene, told Reuters by phone from New York ahead of a Brazil tour that starts next week.

"Definitely a proud and successful moment for all the people of this country, not just black people, but Americans in general."

McCain, now preparing to take on Obama in the November presidential election, used Berry's hit "Johnny B. Goode" as an early campaign theme, although he has since switched to Abba's "Take a Chance On Me."

"Johnny B. Goode" turned 50 in January and topped the list of the 100 greatest guitar songs of all time that Rolling Stone magazine published this month.

"In the '50s there were certain places we couldn't ride on the bus," Berry said. "And now there is a possibility of a black man being in White House. Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, free at last," he said, quoting the words of a Negro spiritual song famously invoked by assassinated civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr.

The first Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, known as the "father of rock 'n' roll," Berry has been on tour since the start of the year in the United States and Europe.

Berry has not released an album of new material since 1979's "Rock It." But he has been promising one since 2001 and it may be close to becoming a reality.

"There are definitely plans for a new record. And we may have more on that by the time we get there in Brazil ... But we can't release any names yet," he said.

Until then, Berry doesn't mind playing the same old songs. Neither do his fans, who will pay more than $100 a ticket in Brazil to hear his hits "Memphis", "Maybellene", "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Sweet Little Sixteen".

"(Those songs) never get old and you can't never forget where you came from," he said. "The old have become classic, because classic never dies."

thanks for the link anonymous. what a disgisting story.

Deanna said...

Man, people who were shot don't get told by judges not to say that they were shot--they've got the goddamn bullet holes to prove it, and to make them use some other terminology because it might sway a jury is fucking absurd.

Just one more example of how rampant this shit is.

Thank you for my morning vomit, Anon.

Richard said...

on a wildly different note, liz is getting a tan today

Deanna said...

Is she using self-tanner or going to the beach? Or doing yard work?

Richard said...

all 3 at once.

By the way folks, if you're at the office, and getting into a heated conversation (sample topic- who at work is a "hottie" or a "nottie"), nothing drives home your point by sarcastically repeating the last thing your co-worker said while making the "jerking off" hand motion. Works every time. The "jerking off" hand motion is the ultimate in visual punctuation.

Richard said...

Also, if you wanna make people think youre a smartie at the office, make sure to reference pop culture things and make lots and lots of air quotes.

Richard said...

And you'll be a considered a regular GED (the "G" is for Genius, the "E" is for Educated, and the "D" is of umm, Dude) mastermind cut into everything everyone says and go, "yeah, right...you wish!" and then make the famous "jerking off" hand motion and saunter back to your desk. If you want an extra flourish point at the person whos life youve ruined with your pithy observation and say "you got buuuurned, homes". But thats for experts only.

Richard said...

And finally, you'll prove you have brains oozing out of your holes if you can master this exchange:

Co-worker: Hi ____, how are you?
You: (Exhale loudly through mouth)

From Wikipedia:

"My Back Is Cold And My Nipples Aren't Hard" was a big country hit in the early 60's. It was done by the Blue Mountain Brothers who totally consisted of Dale, Jake, and Larry Jr, and released on the Furr & Hyde label.

Richard said...

Oh yeah, debating whether R Kelly is guilty or not is awesome

Richard said...

and fervently discussing Hulk Hogan's wife dating a 12 year old or whatever is even more awesome

Richard said...

But while thats awesome and all, is there anything more awesome than using the word "lookdid" frequently?

Deanna said...

Dammit, I was kinda hoping I'd come back from lunch to find more.

Mr Bigpants Cock (of the) Walk said...

yeah yeah, lovely.....,....lets all hear it for keith olbermann!

Mr Bigpants Cock (of the) Walk said...

oh why is anonymous always so lame? I think I know why.

Mr Bigpants Cock (of the) Walk said...

anonymous goes away.

Richard said...

And speaking (yesterday) of brains, (today) i drove in part of the way behind a semi that had written into the dust "show your boobies", which i have to say is really going to prepare me for the awseomeness of my surroundings.

Richard said...

also, jackie---sign the fuck on

Richard said...

Ok, I have another one...brilliant people speaking brilliantly at work complaining about the lack of realism in modern cinema, here's an example...

"people are just gettin crazy with these movies now, theyre just makin stuff up".

to which one cam respond---

but like 30 seconds you were talking about some movie you liked and it was about TIME TRAVEL...did you think that was a documentary?

Richard said...

oh, and then they seamlessly segue into complaining about the kind of movies where you "have to listen to every word"

Deanna said...

Interrupt their conversation to start bitching about subtitles. Say that if you wanted to read, you'd pick up a fucking book.

Mr Bigpants Cock (of the) Walk said...

...I think it was the forth of JU-LY

Richard said...

And finally (maybe) getting told the values of the place I work at are "not moral" and "stupid" and then pronouncing the state you live in as "Mizz-err-ah"

Richard said...

youre goddamn right
