Happy America Recycles Day

By the power and the glory:

THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim November 15, 2006, as America Recycles Day.

And don’t forget, WE ARE AT WAR! I’m just so grateful we have W. to protect us, keep us safe and wipe our widdle tushies.

Yes, we’re friends

Flicka is amused by what should have been our authors’ photo for RM:

As for Bruce: very hot in a mild-mannered-Clark-Kent kind of way. Much better.

However what’s good for you is very unfortunate for Vox. (Are you sure you two are friends?) He needs to fire his manager. Now. And make anyone who wants to dress him up and pose him prove his: a) sobriety and b) hetersexuality.

My god, the only thing he’s missing is a cape.

Unfortunately, Pocket wouldn’t let us use it due to the guns. (By which I mean the Glocks, not the biceps….) And yes, we are friends.

What’s kind of funny about Flicka’s reaction is the automatic assumption that everything even remotely masculine is some kind of homoposery. It’s gotten to the point that if somebody posted a video of himself ripping a human head off a living body with his bare hands and slam-dunking it on a twelve-foot rim, the main reaction would probably be: “wow, that is so gay!”

Fox News funding terrorism

It seems to me there must be a major violation of the Patriot Act here:

Palestinian terror groups and security organizations in the Gaza Strip received $2 million from a U.S. source in exchange for the release of Fox News employees Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig, who were kidnapped here last summer, a senior leader of one of the groups suspected of the abductions told WND.

If the government can’t determine who paid for this obvious violation of U.S. law, I don’t know what more proof you’d need that the Patriot Acts are totally useless for “fighting terrorism”. Which would, naturally, lead one to wonder what are the actual uses for which it is intended.

Word

Even the post-communist Chinese grasp what so many Western women can’t:

“Rich men are normally very busy, and most of the women they meet are there for work or business, which these men consider to be unsuitable for relationships.”

If you want to stay home and take care of the kids, do you want to marry someone who wants to stay home and take care of the kids? Most people can understand that, so why would they ever think that a successful and ambitious man wants to marry a successful and ambitious woman?

Everyone can’t play quarterback if you want a functional team.

At least the libraries are safe

Devious plan to bring down airliner by explosive orgasm thwarted:

A couple’s ill-concealed sexual play aboard a Southwest Airlines flight from Los Angeles got them charged with violating the Patriot Act, intended for terrorist acts, and could land them in jail for 20 years.

Remember when “conservative” commentators openly made fun of the idea that the Patriot Act would ever be used for anything but catching evil terrorists trying to destroy America?

That was awesome.

In fairness, I don’t think anyone has managed to answer Jonah Goldberg’s challenge to name a single library that has been assaulted via the Patriot Act, so obviously his dismissal of Patriot Act concerns remains intact, if even more obviously irrelevant than before.
