Everyone’s A Critic, Especially When They’re Home Sick

leave a comment »

So here’s what I did while sick. I watched a buttload of movies from Comcast’s On Demand. Here are my insta-reviews.

Inglorious Bastards. I’m a Quinten Tarintino fan. I don’t get the hype for this movie. I guess I thought it was going to be something else — more Kill Billish, if that makes sense. I guess I was expecting more action or something. Loved the Hans character. Maybe It’ll grow on my upon a second viewing.

Terminator: Salvation. I didn’t hear good things about this film. It was OK. I’m not a huge Terminator fanboy to begin with, so I probably viewed this more like a generic action movie than an installment into the Terminator universe. I did like the nod to the first film, and I’m sure there were about a thousand inconsistencies with the whole time-travel aspect. But so what? I was sick.

X-Men: Origins. I also heard bad things about this film. Meh. It was what it was.

The Hangover. I’m a bastard when it comes to comedies. What some people find hilarious, I find stupid. I entered this movie with an open mind and knew I wasn’t going to find this movie as funny as other people. I think my problem was I saw this on Monday and was still burning up with a fever. This made me nod off a few times and I probably missed some stuff I shouldn’t have missed. I think the concept was good, but I knew there were a LOT of jokes that I just went “ho hum” at while the fellow patrons in a theater would be laughing out loud.

Zombieland. This had the potential to be great, but they screwed it up with the love story.

You know, I’ve had the Comcast super channel lineup for 5 years now, and I rarely watch movies from the HBO/Starz/Showtime/Cinemax stations. No more. I might as well make the most out of what I’m paying for this. I keep thinking that if I watch these movies On Demand then the experience will be ruined when I buy them for $4 at the local DVD/CD store. Then again, these films On Demand are full screen, so there will be a different viewing experience when I get them on DVD. Yeah.

Birthday Blues

leave a comment »

So yesterday I went to the niece-in-law’s 12-year-old birthday bash. Thank Christ these kids are getting older and pretty soon we won’t be going to these stupid events. They’re kids. They want to be with their friends. They don’t care if adults are present. And who can blame them? Anyway, two kids didn’t show up to this event because they were “sick.” Sick in the summer time? Whatever.

Well this morning I discovered that some other kids at this party should have called off sick as well. MOTHER FUCKER. I had to use a vacation day and will likely use one tomorrow.

And the cherry on this sundae? I managed to do something I thought I could never accomplish: offend the brother-in-law. Here’s the story. The mother-in-law brought the crack-whore niece-in-law’s 18-month-old kid to this event. I don’t really deal with the kid to begin with, but I don’t HATE the tot. Anyway, she began eating shit, and this of course meant her face was soon covered in slobber, spit and particles of food. Sorry, I don’t want to see that shit when I’m eating. I left the table and made a comment to the brother-in-law about how I couldn’t eat in front of the kid looking like that. It wasn’t a mean-spirited remark; I was explaining why I moved away from the table. But I guess he took it as offensive for whatever reason. He told Mrs. kkk about this and … well, let’s just say it was a fun ride home. I’m seriously considering not ever going back to the brother-in-law’s place because that’s how pissed off this made me — well that and the fact I’m a lunatic. You have a problem with something I say? Well then say it to me. Don’t report to the better half. And don’t get “offended” at something like that when you’ve previously made racist comments about other kids. Oh, I remember the, “light chocolate milk” remark, and that bitch, among other things, WILL be brought up at a future date should the occasion call for it.

Thanksgiving and Christmas should be a ball.

A D In A Legion Of R’s In Utah?

leave a comment »

I don’t really care about the following article. I’m just surprised Utah has a Democrat elected to anything.

The American Legion opened its national convention in Salt Lake City with high hopes the gathering would help “unite America” behind the war in Iraq. Instead, the veterans have found themselves in a fight with the city’s anti-war mayor.

Mayor Rocky Anderson, a Democrat in a city that is considered liberal by heavily Republican Utah’s standards, has accused the Bush administration of lying about the rationale for war. He has called President Bush a “complete disaster.”

And on Wednesday, he organized a big protest rally a few blocks from the Salt Palace Convention Center, just hours before Bush’s arrival here for an address to the American Legion.

“No more God-is-on-our-side religious nonsense,” Anderson said at the rally, absorbing waves of cheers and applause from the thousands of protesters as he called Bush a “dishonest, war-mongering, human-rights violating president.”

The American Legion was so offended by Anderson’s protest plans that it refused to extend the customary invitation to the host city’s mayor to deliver the welcoming address.

Chant Rant (So There Was A Purpose For Wicker Man 2006 Being Made)

leave a comment »

So a while back I talked about making an attempt to follow international soccer, starting with the English Premier League. Well, I don’t know if I’ve accomplished this goal or not because I have no clue what I’m watching on television. Premier League, Champions League, Whatever League. I have no clue what’s going on out there. However, I’ve been watching some games and overall I’ve enjoyed it. I’m not sure how this is going to keep up when American football kicks-off, but I’ll cross that hurdle when I get there.

Another topic I brought up in this previous entry was if I was going to cheer for a particular team or not. I probably won’t, but this may change. I think after a season or two when I watch my fair share of games, I may have a preferred team or two. But it won’t be because of the play on the field. It will be because of the crowd chants.

Oops. My bad. Here we go.

Please note I just took this clip off YouTube because it was the first one I found which featured live chanting/singing. I’m way too much of a n00b to know where any of these teams are based or what the chants mean. And I’m way too much of a lazy bastard to look any up any related information at this moment. What I’m trying to say is that soccer chants rock, and I look forward to hearing more as I follow soccer more closely.

Oh. My. God.

So I have that Vuvuzela-mix song playing as I’m typing and just saw the following image.

Ahahahahaha. I just saw a few more images from that video which are cracking me up. No way I’m posting them all. You’re going to have to watch the video for yourself. OH NO NOT THE BEES~!!!!!!!

OK, here’s another image.

And I wonder if this video is what people were looking for that visited KK’s Korner under the search term “Haters Gonna Hate Vuvuzela”?

Plaster Of Paris, Err, Kenya

leave a comment »

The Muslim Wookie Fucker is on to me now and my campaign of misinformation.

President Hussein dismissed a recent poll showing that a third of Americans don’t know he’s a Christian – and blamed an online campaign of misinformation by his conservative enemies for perpetuating the myth that he’s a Muslim.

The Kenyan Koffee Fetcher, speaking with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams on Sunday afternoon, was equally dismissive of conservative talk show host Glenn Beck – saying he didn’t watch the OMGFAUXNEWSLOL2010~!!!! host’s Saturday rally in Washington but wasn’t surprised that Beck was able to “stir up” people during uncertain economic times.

Well, now the Non-Dialect Negro and I have something in common. I didn’t pay attention to that Hope-for-Whatever thing, either.

Williams, sitting under a tent in a rain-soaked New Orleans, where the First Family commemorated the fifth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, asked America’s Top Imam why so many people were uncertain about something so fundamental as his faith.

“I can’t spend all of my time with my birth certificate plastered on my forehead,” quipped Osama, who took a deep breath to gather his thoughts when asked if the poll reflected his inability to communicate with voters.

Uh-oh. He took a deep breath. This must be serious.

And what has your birth certificate got to do with you being a Muslim?

Age-Discrimination Stories Never Get Old

leave a comment »

Gee, I wonder how the 28-year-old got this job?

A Uniontown woman has filed a federal age discrimination suit against the Laurel Highlands School District, claiming that its school board hired the less-qualified daughter of a school director instead of her, according to the suit.

The suit by Jamie A. Miller, 41, alleges she was discriminated against because the board hired a 28-year-old woman for the position.

In 2008, Miller applied for a job as a federal program coordinator and data analyst with the district. The job required a state principal’s certification and a knowledge of federal programs, according to the suit.

Miller, who has undergraduate and graduate degrees in education, also has a principal’s certification and has worked as a guidance counselor under a federal Title 1 program.

She has applied for three other jobs in the district. Miller is seeking a permanent injunction against the district preventing the school board from discriminating against her because of her age for the other positions.

The suit alleges the person hired for the job does not have the work or educational experience.

Miller filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in 2009 in an effort to resolve the dispute. When she failed to reach an agreement though mediation, the commission granted Miller the right to sue the school district in June.

“We have our attorneys working on the case. Other than that I have no comment,” said district Superintendent Gary Brain.

Is this age discrimination? Unless the other candidate does not have the minimum qualifications, I don’t think so. But it’s funny as hell. Lord knows how many jobs I was turned down for because someone less qualified knew the boss’s relative/etc. I can think of one instance during my Ohio days in which this happened. Like to hear it? Here it goes.

Back in 2000 I applied for a job at Modern Machine Shop Magazine. I thought I was kicking ass during the interview, and then I got to the part where I would meet two co-workers. Everything fell to shit. Several months later I got a return call from this place. Why the delay? Because this place had given an offer to another candidate — a candidate that knew the two people I mentioned above. Funny thing is, the person who was offered this job was playing Modern Machine Shop off of another organization (F&W Publishing) and eventually went with F&W’s offer. I went back for another interview at Modern Machine Shop, but the place issued a hiring freeze right before I was to be given an offer. Was I being lied to and they just didn’t want me? Meh. After hearing how pissed off my would-be supervisor sounded on the phone because I was to alleviate a lot of his workload, I think it was legit. Plus a year or so later I spoke with someone that was familiar with this place and said that hiring freeze was real.

Oh, and remember that person who went to F&W Publishing? When I interviewed at F&W Publishing, I was asked if I would have a problem working in an all-female department. Gender discrimination? Hmmm…

Now back to the article.

My guess is that Miller is trying to embarrass the school district with this all-but-evident display of nepotism. As long as the 28-year-old has the minimum qualifications, I’m sure the district can say Miller is “overqualified.” Hey, I have another Ohio-related story. In 2001 (or was it 2002?), I applied for a job at MidFirst Credit Union. The job’s requirements were a Bachelor’s Degree and several year’s relevant experience. Who got the job? Someone who graduated from a local Community College with an Associate’s Degree and ZERO experience.

Memories.

From the files of: “How The Hell Do They Find This Comfortable?”

And here’s the close-up shot.

While I’m somewhat on this subject, I might as well mention what happened last month. Dessa (brown) and JJ (not pictured) had to have their front right fangs removed. Getting older sucks. After they had their procedures, we put them in our bedroom to recover for a few days. JJ wanted the hell out as soon as the anesthesia wore off. Dessa, on the other hand, was more than content to stay in the bedroom by herself. So we decided to try and see what would happen if we kept her in our bedroom with the door closed while we were at work.

She was happier than a pig in shit.

So now we have a water bowl, litter box, scratching mat and toy box in our room and only let the Bitch out whenever we are there to supervise; that is when we’re in the mood to hear her hiss at anything that comes within five feet of her presence. She does have to come out to eat because Max (not pictured) needs to eat in the bedroom because his diet is different than Dessa’s and JJ’s. (Bella, the White Menace, has to eat in the bathroom.)

After turning 11 in March, Dessa only has a few years left. Might as well make them as enjoyable for her (and for us) as possible. And as long as the bedroom provides several available sun spots like the one out by the living room recliner pictured above, it’s not hard to tell she prefers the “lockup.”

So I have a Facebook page where a few of us B.S. about hip-hop from the 1980s-1990s. In this page I suggested to one of my homiez that perhaps we should form our own super group. I’ll let the screen shot speak for itself.

Of course, this conversation came just after a discussion about when we used to write our own lyrics to songs. You can figure out who’s who.

Posting An Entry Of Know-Nothing

leave a comment »

I came. I read. I LOL’d.

I thought these type of articles were going to start appearing once we got closer to this year’s mid-term elections. Guess the internal polling numbers are worse than first thought.

The Democrats may deserve to lose in November. They have been terrible at trying to explain who they stand for and the larger goal of their governance. But if they lose, it should be because their policies are unpopular or ill-conceived — not because millions of people believe a lie (that the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher is a Muslim).

Of course they’re terrible at trying to explain who they stand for and the larger goal of their governance. If they actually did attempt this, they would lose outside of major urban centers where many of their ideas “flourish.”

In the much-discussed Pew poll reporting the spike in ignorance, those who believe Obama to be Muslim say they got their information from the media. But no reputable news agency — that is, fact-based, one that corrects its errors quickly — has spread such inaccuracies.

So where is this “media?” Two sources, and they are — no surprise here — the usual suspects. The first, of course, is Rush Limbaugh…

And what’s the second? Lemme guess. KK’s Korner.

Finally, there is OMGFAUXNEWSLOL2010~!!!

Stephen Strasburg, Meet Tommy John

with 2 comments

Looks like it’s the summer of recovery for Stephen Strasburg.

And the autumn of recovery.

And the winter of recovery.

And the spring of recovery.

And another summer of recovery.

The young phenom pitcher faces his first major injury, and will undergo Tommy John surgery. His exact timetable is still uncertain at the moment, but he is not expected to return within a year. This means that his 2010 MLB season is over, and he will likely miss most of the 2011 season as well.

But seriously, though. That’s a bummer. Then again, at least Strasburg got his money now. Hopefully, if his arm turns out to be done, he’ll be able to invest wisely.

Sorry I’m not talking about whether or not he’ll be able to recover. I focus on life outside of sports. Strasburg can focus on the rest of his career.

Local Publication Provides A Slush(ie) Fund Full Of Content

with one comment

I’m not sure which story in the weekly community fishwrap I find more amusing.

Contestant A: The article about local schools dealing with new food guidelines set forth by The Kenyan Koffee Fetcher and Chewbacca’s Sister. Yep, I’m sure they sat up late at night in the White House going over lists of what kids can and cannot eat at government schools. Why am I talking about this story? Because of this one part.

Although surrounding districts are taking some beverages off of cafeteria shelves, Michael Marasco, director of food services for Penn-Trafford, said his district isn’t planning on making any changes.

The only beverage change comes at the elementary level, where administrators plan to remove slushie machines due to maintenance issues.

Slushie machines — for real? Oh, then then there was this.

“We’re sticking with the same concepts as last year and hoping to add some more healthy items to the menu, such as whole grain pizza and breads,” Marasco said. “We feel that we can do a lot to improve healthy options for students at Penn-Trafford.”

Whole grain pizza. Yeah. I’m sure that shit will be real healthy. I’ve looked at the nutritional information on the boxes of various “whole grain” pizzas at the store. The kids ain’t getting healthier by eating this stuff.

OK, so that was Contestant A. What’s Contestant B?

There’s a weekly police blotter this fishwrap publishes. This week there was a story about some guy the better half went to middle/high school with and had the hots for during this time. Why was this guy in the police blotter? For (allegedly) inappropriately touching an 8-year-old girl … last summer. The wheels of justice do go slowly, don’t they? Oh, and this guy is listed as a sex offender and served jail time for following two 13-year-old girls. Wha-? You can get jail time for that? Damn. I’m not advocating this sort of thing, but with all the shit my crack-whore sister-in-law and niece-in-law have done and neither one of them serving a day’s worth of hard time, following some girls around seems a bit harsh.

I’m looking better and better each day.

Dumb Deportation Dilemna

with 3 comments

Tens of millions of invaders in this country, and look what happens when someone tries to play by the rules. What a joke.

A mother whose daughter is suffering a rare form of cancer at an area hospital could be asked to leave early next month.

Barbados resident Petrah Gooding brought her 7-year-old daughter Niamh Stoute to Atlanta in November to be treated for neuroblastoma at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta’s Aflac Cancer center.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement extended Niamh’s nine-month visitor’s visa to allow her to continue receiving treatment, but Gooding was told she would have to leave her daughter’s side on Sept. 2.

“I’m at a loss for why they would approve an extension for my daughter and not for the mother who is taking care of her,” Gooding told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution by phone Thursday evening.

Immigration officials declined to discuss how how Gooding was denied the same extension as her daughter, but spokeswoman Ana Santiago said the issue was being investigated.

And what was the fallout to this shocking revelation?

Poll Call

leave a comment »

So yesterday I got a call from some polling place.

And some of the questions were open-ended.

God help the pseudo-telemarketer.

Surprisingly, most of the questions were focused on the state House race coming up. My State Representative has been a longtime Democrat who has never really had a serious challenger. I’m curious to know if his campaigned commissioned this polling place or if his opponent did.

Either way, I made it clear what I thought Pennsylvania’s biggest problems were — out-of-control spending and a pension program that’s going to burst like a condom bought at Goodwill. In addition, I made it ABUNDANTLY clear that the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher is playing a role in my voting, even at the local level. I used to vote for this State Representative in the past. No more. You want to declare a jihad on my health insurance, I issue a fatwa on your Party.

God help my State Representative if he decides to pay a visit to the kkk manor like he did the previous election season.

Code Pinko Thinks Protests Are Stinko

leave a comment »

Hey, if these tactics are deemed acceptable for Code Pinko and the fine people over at the SEIU to implement, then these tactics are acceptable for other groups whenever Code Pinko decides to hold their own events.

Melanie Morgan, founder of Move America Forward, the nation’s largest pro-troop organization, led about a dozen conservative activists who protested at the Venice home of Code Pink co-founder Jodie Evans at a Saturday afternoon fundraiser for California Democratic gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown.

Morgan reports the pro-American protesters, “blocked the entrance of hundreds of wealthy Democrat liberals, including Sally Kellerman and Cindy Asner, ex-wife of Ed Asner.” Protesters laid down on the sidewalk outside the entrance gate where guests had to step over them.

Event host Jodie Evans was visibly angry at getting a taste of her own medicine and had several confrontations, including one in which she denied, against the evidence, that she supports the terrorist organization Hamas. Several guests were none-too-pleased with being protested, while some had no idea they were attending an event associated with Code Pink.

Jerry Brown sneaked into the house from the back door while Melanie Morgan threw her body onto the sidewalk shouting, “Code Pink supports terrorists!” When not laying on the sidewalk, Morgan stood outside the back gate, “yelling through a screen at [Evans] while she sipped her white wine as Brown’s security guard watched from inside his SUV with the engine running for two hours.” Though the Dodge Durango burned needless fossil fuels, presumably waiting for Brown’s departure, he left in yet another vehicle.

Police were called and arrived in a squad car about an hour into the event. However, the trio of law enforcement officers found no reason to make any arrests.

Scarred Over Misquoting This Song

leave a comment »

1:10 — I’m from the state where you rarely see a motherfucking fist fight

Wait, so it’s “you rarely” and not “you’d rather”?

So I’ve been misquoting my favorite line in my favorite song off this album for 15+ years?

Well there goes my street cred.

The overall album is OK; not one of my favorites. But I love this song. In a way, I can relate.

Some busta approaches Scarface and challenges him. Scarface, who was minding his own business, comes out with a barrage of lyrics and the busta gets overwhelmed and leaves. Scarface then laments on how people keep trying to mess around with him when all he wants to do is smoke a joint.

Yeah, sounds like me in a nutshell.

That’s how motherfucker is, dogg. That’s how motherfuckers be.

Winning Hands Can Be An Act Of God

leave a comment »

So recently I had the following thought: If the major deities would gather for a regularly scheduled poker night, who would be prone to bluffing, checking, going all-in after hitting the nut flush on the turn, etc.

After much thought and deliberation, I have the following guesses.

— Allah’s definitely an all-in’er if the game was No Limit Hold ‘Em.

– Buddah would lure people in by checking for a round or two before raising.

– I can’t get a read on Jesus, so I think I answered that question.

– With extra arms, Kali should just play the odds/percentages with her multiple hands per round. However, I think she’d be more aggressive, overplay her cards and be out first.

Timing Is Everything

leave a comment »

Earlier this week I talked about my experiences with several cashiers. However, there was another incident that took place I want to comment upon.

On the way from the grocery store, I was a few minutes from the scene of an accident. As volunteer fire trucks flew by me, I knew it was going to take longer than usual for me to get home. Sure enough, less than a mile later I saw the scene of the accident. Not sure what exactly happened; someone probably ran a red light and totaled another vehicle. There was a delay but nothing major. However, it got me the thinking: What if I was driving a little faster from the store? What if I didn’t wait in line for stamps and filled out that comment card? What if the customer in front of me in line would have bagged her groceries instead of standing there like a lazy shit?

What if I had been the one in front of the car who went through the red light?

Strange sometimes how being in the wrong place at the wrong time can only be a matter of minutes or seconds.

A Gag In More Ways Than One

with 2 comments

This may have been an Internet hoax, but damn.

To recap 48 hours in the life of a hoax, a complicit news media, a fast-food chain soaking up the buzz and an outrageous sandwich:

The Internet exploded Wednesday with news that KFC was test-marketing the new “KFC Skinwich” — fried chicken skin, bacon and cheese in a bun. Though horrifying, the idea seemed plausible, given the chain that brought us the Double Down sandwich, where the bun was replaced with two fried chicken filets.

KFC spokesman Rick Maynard told us the Skinwich was a hoax and “just the result of someone having a little fun online.”

But that got us thinking: Could this all have been an elaborate rouse by KFC (which has a history with publicity stunts), putting finger to wind to gauge reaction?

While we can’t know for sure, we could make one ourselves. And so we did, using the bun, cheese, bacon and mayo from a KFC Doublicious sandwich, and the fried skin from three breast pieces and two thighs.

This has to be the ultimate, “Hungry for it now, regret it later” food (if one could call this “food”).

And while the KFC Skinwich may not be on the menu (yet), this BK heart-attack express is all real.

Cardiologists may soon see an uptick in business if Burger King’s latest fat-and-calorie bomb catches on.

Meet the New York Pizza Burger: four quarter-pound patties topped with pepperoni and mozzarella and smothered in marinara sauce – all on a sesame seed bun that spans nine-and-a-half inches.

It all adds up to 2,530 calories, 144 grams of fat (59 grams saturated) and 380 mg of cholesterol. An old-school Whopper is comparatively healthy, delivering 670 calories, 40 grams of fat (11 saturated), and 75 mg of cholesterol.

Nutritional guidelines say most people should consume no more 2,500 calories, 65 grams of total fat, 20 grams of saturated fat, and 300 mg of cholesterol in an entire day.

Nutritional information posted on the company’s website indicates that each Pizza Burger contains six servings, though time will tell whether people brave enough to order the sandwich share it – or scarf it all by themselves.

The sandwich is scheduled to debut next month in the chain’s “Whopper Bar” in New York City’s Time Square district. So far, BK is keeping images of the sandwich under wraps.

But the restaurant is open 24 hours a day, seven days week.

In other words, it’s always open, even if your coronary arteries aren’t.

The sad thing I remember years ago when I could put down all this shit. Thank God I’m not able to anymore.

Not-So-Secret Muslim Man

leave a comment »

Snicker snicker. Tee-hee. Giggle giggle…

…BWAHAHAHAHAHA.

Americans increasingly are convinced – incorrectly – that President Hussein is a Muslim, and a growing number are thoroughly confused about his religion.

Nearly one in five people, or 18 percent, said they think the pile of Kenyan afterbirth living along Pennsylvania Avenue is Muslim, up from the 11 percent who said so in March 2009, according to a poll released Thursday. The proportion who correctly say he is a Christian is down to just 34 percent.

Only one in five? Much more work to do I still have.

And I love how in these articles it has to be pointed out that it’s “incorrect” to perceive the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher as being down with Allah.

The largest share of people, 43 percent, said they don’t know his religion, an increase from the 34 percent who said that in early 2009.

Which of course means 43 percent of people don’t want to admit to a stranger on the telephone what they truly think.

The survey, conducted by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center and its affiliated Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, is based on interviews conducted before the controversy over whether Muslims should be permitted to construct a mosque near the World Trade Center site. The Kenyan Koffee Fetcher has said he believes Muslims have the right to build an Islamic center there, though he’s also said he won’t take a position on whether they should actually build it.

Which of course means President Hussein is too much of a chickenshit to give his actual opinion on the matter. Your most excellent Allah-nees, you’d be better off saying that you think the Muslim Recreational Center should be built. At least then a number of people who disagree with you may actually respect you for stating your opinion.

In a separate poll by Time magazine/ABT SRBI conducted Monday and Tuesday – after Osama’s comments about the mosque – 24 percent said they think he is Muslim, 47 percent said they think he is Christian and 24 percent didn’t know or didn’t respond.

Now the number is one in four. AHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Pew analysts attribute the findings to attacks by his opponents and Kenya’s Favorite Son’s limited attendance at religious services, particularly in contrast with Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, whose worship was more public.

Now I’m going to side with the Kenyan-in-Chief on this one. I’ve stated my opinion on this matter before: “If Hussein gets his spiritual learn on through an electronic gadget, then more higher power to him. Religion is a time for self-reflection and all that other crap, and it doesn’t matter where this takes place.” I continue to stick by this.

Andrew Kohut, the Pew Research Center’s director, said the confusion partly reflects “the intensification of negative views about the Non-Dialect Negro among his critics.”

It does?

Alan Cooperman, the Pew Forum’s associate director for research, said that with the public hearing little about Osama’s religion, “maybe there’s more possibility for other people to make suggestions that the president is this or he’s really that or he’s really a Muslim.”

Yeah, keep telling yourself that.

President Hussein is the Christian son of a Kenyan Muslim father and a Kansas mother. From age 6 to 10, the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher lived in predominantly Muslim Indonesia with his mother and Indonesian stepfather. His full name, Barack Hussein Osama, sounds Muslim to many.

“To many.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

White House officials did not provide on-the-record comments on the survey, but they prompted Pastor Kirbyjon Caldwell of Houston to call The Associated Press.

Caldwell, who said he has known Hussein for years, said the president is a Christian who prays every day. He said he was not sure where the public confusion about the president’s religion came from, but he called false media reports about it “a 24-hour noise box committed to presenting the president in a false light.”

Oh I bet he prays every day — FIVE TIMES PER DAY.

Truth be told, if you had to say that you were a Muslim or that you listened to this douche-nozzle for years upon years…

…I would certainly say I was the former.

Actions Tip Higher Than Words

with 4 comments

So this week was a joy when it came to dealing with cashiers. Let me count the ways.

I was at the Suzuki dealership for an hour-and-a-half yesterday for an oil change. As I sorted out my grocery store coupons and caught up on my reading in a near-vacant lobby with no other cars being serviced, it turned out they COULDN’T FIND ME. Because of this they ended up calling the better half at home and asked her, “Are you here (at the dealership)?” Mrs. kkk then called cell phone and said the Suzuki people were looking for me. When I finally got to pay my bill I wrote on my slip to remind myself of the time I spent waiting and the fact I couldn’t be found in a the customer waiting room even though I stuck out like a sore thumb. The sales manager noticed this and asked, “You were here THAT long?” I responded “yep” and walked out. I actually didn’t mind the wait because I always bring stuff with me to do. I think the whole, “Duuuuh, which way did he go?” episode was what had me shaking my head.

Then there was the cashier from Kohl’s Tuesday. There was a mega-sale going on and I had a take-an-extra-30-percent-off coupon, so I stocked up on some phat threads for my pimp wardrobe. In other words, I bought several more Champion plain colored shirts and shorts to go along with my other Champion plain colored shirts and shorts at home. These are not to be confused with my plain colored Covington shirts and Wal-Mart mesh shorts that I wear to work. No, I rock the Champion gear outside the office. Only the best when I’m out on the town.

Where the hell am I going with this? Oh, yeah. The Kohl’s check-out lane.

As Mrs. kkk and I went to check out, we were behind this lady and her kid. The cashier then began talking to the kid without ringing anything up. OK, I get it. Chicks talk to kids. But this bitch wasn’t doing a GOD DAMN THING IN REGARDS TO CHECKING THEM OUT. I stood there dumbfounded. She was going through what this woman bought and commented on every single article of clothing which was on the counter, giving the kid high-fives and not even near her register. Jesus Christ. I finally got annoyed to the point where I went and picked up a nearby Winnie the Pooh book and began reading it out loud to the better half. Mrs. kkk wasn’t amused.

I finished the entire book and this cashier was STILL ringing up the woman’s shit. I’m not exaggerating.

Suddenly, the cashier discovered that the shoes picked out by the customer were “ripped” and she was calling someone to collect those shoes and get them a new pair.

You got to be kidding me. Was I giving off bad vibes and she was being passive aggressive? No clue. But if I’m going to be challenged to a game of “Who’s The Bigger Asshole?”, I’m going to win every time. During this wait, the line had increased by six more customers. This forced a manager to open up two more registers and I was moved to one of them. Before moving, I took note of the cashier’s name. When I received the usual post-transaction spiel of “take this survey at Kohls.com,” I replied that I hoped people could get fired via these surveys and mentioned the cashier’s name which caused this register logjam. The manager wasn’t amused; wasn’t sure if the cashier heard me but I think she did.

But the best was on Monday when I did the weekly grocery store trip. The actual grocery-buying experience was fine. It was afterward when I went to get stamps at the customer service center. Let me provide some backstory with my experiences concerning this store’s customer service center.

The customer service center has two registers divided by a velvet rope. The left side is for stuff like stamps. The right side is for lottery people. Months ago I did the unthinkable and waited behind a person in the lottery line when I wanted stamps. Why did I do this? Because there was nobody in the stamp line and I didn’t want to wait there, have another person get in the lottery line and have the only cashier back there deal with two separate lines. I’ve done the customer service thing in the past. The dual-line experience is awful. Anyway, when I stepped up and said I wanted to buy stamps, I got yelled at. I’m not kidding. I got yelled at and was told I needed to go in the other aisle. OK.

Some time after that, I committed the same infraction and got the same treatment. Ever since then, I’ve always gone through the stamp aisle. And guess what? On Monday my dual-line scenario came to fruition. I was waiting in the stamp line by my lonesome while the cashier was dealing with some lady in the lottery line. I had three songs from the Ramones Adios Amigos live album playing on my MP3 device. This means I was waiting for just over five minutes. During that time I had some old lady get behind me in line, and as the cashier finished up with this transaction another customer entered the lottery line.

And the cashier began waiting on her.

Fuck this shit.

I’m tired of playing these games. I try to be accommodating and I get shit on. I try to be considerate and I get shit on. Now it’s time to do this kkk style.

As the lady in the lottery line began giving the cashier numbers I reached over to the cashier’s side of the customer service center and grabbed a pen. I then tore off one of those “leave a comment” cards. I then stepped off to the side. I then began writing.

THAT got the cashier’s attention. Suddenly out of the corner of my eye I saw this blur come toward me and I heard a faint, “Can I help you sir?” After hearing this question several times, I turned around to the old lady behind me, motioned to her to move to the register and said, “I’m done here.” I had two Ramones songs play as I wrote on the comment card. While hearing the cashier’s voice from time-to-time during “Crusher” and “53rd and Third,” I felt like I had been there long enough. I put the pen back where I found it, took my shopping cart and left. While I made it a point not to even acknowledge the cashier who didn’t at first acknowledge me, I also made it a point to show that I was carrying away a filled-out comment card.

Now I didn’t actually write anything down on that card; it was a bunch of dribble — like this entry. In fact, I threw it away the card in a trash can when I got outside. I can’t wait until Wal-Mart finally gets built in my redneck of the woods; I’m so damn tired of these Giant Eagle cashiers. Hell, I no longer bother to remember the price of a “buy one get one free” item that I get via coupon because, yep, I’ve been YELLED AT SEVERAL TIMES by cashiers that it didn’t matter if I told them the price because they still had to spend 10 minutes looking up the cost on sales receipt. Are you starting to figure out why I sport an MP3 player when out in public?

I don’t demand stellar customer service. Hell, I was a HORRID cashier. However, I always made it a point to get people in and out ASAP. Why? Because I didn’t want them around me. And if you hate your job, that’s wonderful. I don’t care. And I’ll respond in kind.

I’m not a demanding person. I just want to be left alone. Some may not approve of my tactics; while leaving Kohl’s and laughing at the fact I was able to read an entire Winnie the Pooh book while waiting for one customer with less than 10 items to be rung up, Mrs. kkk was yelling and said, “see, this is why nobody likes you.” But let me shed some light onto the other side of the cashier experience spectrum.

Earlier today the better half and I went out to a restaurant for dinner. Not a fancy place. The waitress did her job — she took our order, refilled Mrs. kkk drink and left us along for the most part. For that, I tipped her $10 on a $15 order.

I figured she deserved a little something more for providing stellar service. And by “stellar service” I mean “not being a complete and utter dipshit.”

But Do They Use Pigskin?

Don’t you know making football players practice in the daylight during Ramadan is one of the worst things you can do to a Muslim male?

A Michigan high school football team is holding preseason practices in the middle of the night to help its Muslim players practice both faith and football.

The predominantly Muslim squad from Dearborn says the nocturnal regimen is a way for players to eat and drink while observing the holy month of daytime fasting known as Ramadan that started last week.

The August heat also played a factor in Fordson High coach Fouad Zaban’s proposal to reverse the clock for a week of two-a-day practices.

While I’m SHOCKED beyond all belief that some grab-ass Separation of Church and State group hasn’t filed a lawsuit over this, I might actually surprise you on this one. I say go ahead and let them practice at night. Think about it:

1) It’s safer for the players because it’s cooler at night than during the day, so the risk of getting heatstroke is less.

2) By practicing at night and sleeping during the day, these kids will most likely stay out of trouble.

Hell, I’m surprised more teams don’t do this sort of thing.

But Was It Some Puerto Rican Guy?

Wonder if Katie Couric will start up a defense fund for this one, too?

A South Carolina mother who claimed her children drowned when her car careened into a river was charged with murder Tuesday after authorities said she confessing to suffocating the two toddlers and then faking the accident.

Sheriff Larry Williams said 29-year-old Shaquan Duley told investigators she was distraught about her money troubles and unemployment and that she killed her killed her children by putting her hand over their mouths after a dispute with her own mother. He says Duley then strapped the children into her car and drove it into a river Monday morning.

“This was a young lady that was in trouble, in trouble in more ways than she realized,” Williams said. “She was in trouble and she didn’t know where to turn.”

Williams said the responsibilities of being a mother were simply too much for the mother, who didn’t show signs of remorse during an overnight interview with authorities.

Oh, but she showed remorse. All is forgiven.

Where Does The Buck Stop?

leave a comment »

So let I get this straight.

Atlanta Public Schools superintendent Beverly Hall addressed hundreds of community stakeholders about the state of Atlanta Public Schools on Tuesday.

Channel 2 Action News reporter Mike Petchenik was in the meeting at 8 a.m. when Hall said the cheating scandal betrayed the trust of the community and it was her job to regain it.

“The buck stops here,” she said.

Late Monday night, angry residents expressed their frustration over the CRCT cheating investigation.

Angry parents confronted Hall over her decision to reassign a dozen school principals. The reassigned principals ran schools where a Blue Ribbon committee found evidence of possible cheating on the CRCT exam.

Hall said Monday that she had no choice but to remove the principals while the state continued their investigation.

In Tuesday morning’s address, Hall said it was time to move past the investigation and to focus on the children.

She also said that if one person cheated, they should be dealt with swiftly and strongly.

There’s a test cheating scandal.

The government schools Superintendent says the buck stops with her.

And in the top-of-hour radio blurb I heard, this person said she’s not resigning.

So the buck stops with this government schools official, but nothing is going to be done about this and we should all “move on.” Nice. I have to remember to use this the next time I get in trouble for something.

No Margins For Error

leave a comment »

So today I got an email from the boss, who is out of town on other work-related stuff: “Do whatever you did to that file I gave you last week and have it done to these other 40 files and overnight everything to the printer.”

Me: Uhhhhh…

Last week? Shit, I can’t remember what I ate for dinner last night. Time to go into the email archives and find out what the hell I did that was so special to that one file.

I did some stuff in Photoshop to this one file, and rather than apply the same changes to the other 40 files that my boss incorrectly set up I sent one file to the publisher to see if everything was kosher. It was. I hate dealing with publishers. Why? Because just about every publishing company I’ve dealt with is a pain in the ass to deal with because they expect everyone to know about gutter widths, bleeding and all the other ins and outs with putting together a publication. I will defend them from time to time; at my last job my one boss got pissed because the print shop she worked with didn’t proofread her materials. Needless to say there were quite a few type-os. Here is how our conversation went.

What am I paying them for?

You’re paying them to print this, not to copyedit.

I’ve done the publishing thing at previous jobs. I get that some people make it nearly impossible to work with you; I loved it when I received photos for submission that were newspaper articles or photocopied pictures. Ugh. I always tried to educate people whenever possible, but it was mostly to no avail. Then there were the times I was on the “customer” side. At my last job there was this booklet I was supposed to publish. I went to a nearby print shop and asked what were the dimensions I should work with. I told them to include the space needed for margins and other technical stuff that I wouldn’t normally know about. Of course they didn’t give me this information and I went out of my mind upon learning I had to reformat each page.

Where am I going with this? No clue. I’m working a headache and just typing whatever comes to mind.

It’s funny because I’m considering the “publishing” expert at this workplace. Hey, anything that increases my value in the office I’ll gladly take. On a somewhat related note, this is soooo true. And I’ve played both roles in the caption.

Being Taken To Old/Older/Oldest School

leave a comment »

So I’ve been on a YouTube kick for the last few months looking up rap music from the 1980s through the mid-1990s and … uhhh… just listening it on YouTube. All legal-like. Yeah.

Anyway, as I go from song to song, I tend to read some of the comments posted. And the commentators say the same stuff, no matter the song.

“I miss the old days of REAL hip-hop.”

“This is so much better than the shit today.”

“What happened to hip-hop? Now it’s all *insert name of current hip-hopper*.”

As someone who went to high school in the first half of the 1990s, I have to laugh when I hear someone call a track from 1995 “old school.” I consider “old school” to be anything up through the mid-1980s. After that there was a time through the late 1980s that was a bridge to the early 1990s. While many tracks from the late-1980s sounded the same as the official “old school” time period, there was some expansion and experimentation, and you could tell new sounds were being developed nationwide. This brought us to the early/mid-1990s, which I consider the “golden age” of hip-hop. After the mid-1990s I pretty much tuned out of the rap world and haven’t really paid much attention to what’s been going on. There have been some songs I have listened to since 2000, but I don’t make all that much an effort to see what I’ve missed.

Where am I going with this half-assed effort?

Oh, yeah. I’m getting old(er).

I’m not a big hater on today’s hip-hop. In the next 10 years the stuff of today will be considered “old school” by today’s youth and tomorrow’s young-ins. And what about the current crop of geezers? Well, we’ll be in the old folks home jamming classics from our high school days such as…

I remember growing up and having my mom constantly comment on the fact I never really listened to music. That all changed in seventh grade once I started listening to this shit. Even though I didn’t play the explicit material when she was around, she knew what I was exposing myself to. She said from time-to-time that I would regret buying all these tapes and CDs because one day I would “outgrow” this stuff.

Well, it’s been 16+ years since I graduated high school and so far no regret. Sure there are a number of albums which haven’t aged well, but they’re still in the collection. I’ve expanded my listening pleasures since my high school days (*coughRamonescough*), but whenever someone asks me what music I listen to, hip-hop from the 1980s-1990s is ALWAYS the first genre out of mouth. It’s my foundation.

Here’s a twin spin. Now put a quarter in your ass ’cause you played yourself.

So I had on Comcast’s old-school rap music channel on today. It’s always interesting to note what words get bleeped out and which words get unmolested.

Which song inspired me to post this entry?

Here you go.

The word “hell” was bleeped out, but only when Raekwon or Ghost Face said this forbidden word. The chick providing the background vocals was untouched.

OK then.

Is Building A Mosque Suitable Grounds For Debate?

with 3 comments

OK, I might as well make some comments about the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher and the whole let’s-build-a-mosque-at-Ground-Zero hullabaloo.

First, here is America’s Top Muslim.

President Hussein on Friday forcefully joined the national debate over construction of an Islamic complex near New York’s ground zero, telling guests at a White House dinner marking the holy month of Ramadan that opposing the project is at odds with American values.

“Let me be clear: As a citizen, and as president, I believe that Muslims have the same right to practice their religion as anyone else in this country,” Osama said, according to prepared remarks at a White House iftar, the traditional breaking of the daily Ramadan fast.

“That includes the right to build a place of worship and a community center on private property in Lower Manhattan, in accordance with local laws and ordinances,” he continued. “This is America, and our commitment to religious freedom must be unshakeable.”

“Let me be clear.” Famous last words. Or would these be “first words”?

And of course after being “clear,” with his opinion on Friday, here is the headline in today’s fishwrap.

Oh, and here are my insta-thoughts.

1) If the current occupant in the White House is so concerned about the rule of law, then I want mosques built all along the U.S./Mexican border. Maybe then the feds will take notice of what’s going on and do something about law enforcement when it comes to the invasion going on down there.

2) If a $100+ million mosque/rec. center can get built in a year in NYC, then I want those Muslims running the city because they can cut through red tape like a hot knife through an infidel’s neck. Maybe Sharia law won’t be so bad after all.

3) I’m a compromising fellow. Muslims can build their “community center” under the guise of “tolerance” at Ground Zero only when they become more tolerant themselves. Here’s a list. Let’s get cracking, Mohammad.

4) Here’s an article about how Pope John Paul II asked some nuns to move their praying away from Auschwitz because it offended Jews.

In the 1980s, Carmelite nuns moved into an abandoned building on the edge of the former Nazi death camp to pray for the souls taken there. As with the dispute over the mosque near Ground Zero, the convent’s presence escalated into a clash not only between different faiths but between competing historical narratives. As with today’s clash too, it seemed intractable until the Polish pope stepped in.For Jews, Auschwitz is a symbol of the Shoah, and the presence of a convent looked like an effort to Christianize a place of Jewish suffering. Suspicions were further aroused by a fundraising brochure from an outside Catholic group, which referred to the convent as a “guarantee of the conversion of strayed brothers.” The protests mounted over the course of several years and various interfaith agreements, and pointed to the real strains that remained between Poles and Jews over a shared history with very different perspectives.

Many Catholics, not just in Poland, could not understand how nuns begging God’s forgiveness and praying for the souls of the departed could possibly offend anyone. There was also a nationalist element. Many members of the Polish resistance had also been murdered at Auschwitz. And again like our present controversy at Ground Zero, intemperate reactions and statements from both sides only inflamed passions.

So what did Pope John Paul II do? He waited, and he counseled. And when he saw that the nuns were not budging—and that their presence was doing more harm than good—he asked the Carmelites to move. He acknowledged that his letter would probably be a trial to each of the sisters, but asked them to accept it while continuing to pursue their mission in that same city at another convent that had been built for them.

Let’s remember what this means. By their own lights, the nuns believed they were doing only good. They may have had a legal title to be where they were. And it is likely that they never would have been forced to move by local authorities had they insisted on staying.

There’s a lesson here. Even those who favor this new Islamic Center surely can appreciate why some American feelings are rubbed raw by the idea of a mosque at a place where Islamic terrorists killed more than 2,700 innocent people. If feelings in Auschwitz were raw after nearly half a century, it’s not hard to see why they would remain raw at Ground Zero after less than a decade.

Don’t know what this story has to do with this particular entry, but I figured what the heck. Keep in mind I first heard about this story on Hate Radio, so it’s probably made up … you know, like the Holocaust.

5) Of course then there’s always the theory that he Non-Dialect Negro wants a mosque built at Ground Zero so it would be a more convenient place of worship the next time he’s in the Big Apple.

A Premier Goal For Me To Achieve

OK, so I heard from a few people during the World Cup that for better soccer viewing that one needs to watch actual league play. Because of this I have a goal (pun intended) of following the English Premier League this year. I most likely won’t cheer for a team but rather just watch the games simply to watch them, which is what I do when viewing sports on my side of the Pond. I may want a particular team or a particular athlete to win, but if they lose I’m not all that emotionally invested.

I watched some matches earlier today and saw the goalie who gave up that fluke goal to the U.S. in the World Cup. I feel bad for him. He wasn’t on top of his game today, but his teammates were worse. I’m sure he’s getting crucified in the media.

Yeah, this is the type of in-depth perspective you will be getting from me this season when I remember to follow the EPL. Why should this be any different than my other blog entries?

Host With The Most (The Most Of What, I Don’t Know)

So this evening I had to entertain one of the better half’s co-workers. She’s from another part of the state and came to our region on business matters. Mrs. kkk invited her to our house for dinner tonight. Will the better half’s office door have a different lock installed on it Monday morning?

DEVELOPING…

Well I thought I was on good behavior. Even Mrs. kkk said so afterward. And yes, we have this conversation after every social outing we go to that doesn’t deal with relatives.

Spelling Out This Lack Of Communication

Sorry, but I have to vent on this work-related matter. In real-time.

It’s OK if you can’t speak English. You’re working for a living. I appreciate and respect that. However, when I’m spelling out a critical piece of information letter-by-letter, don’t tell me it’s incorrect and then proceed to KEEP PRONOUNCING THE ENTIRE ADDRESS THAT I COULDN’T UNDERSTAND FROM YOU THE FIRST TIME.

Hair-Raising Legal Action

leave a comment »

Missing a launch party because of jail time. Yeah, that could put a damper on showcasing hair extensions at a social event.

Paris Hilton’s attorneys say a $35 million lawsuit against the heiress lacks merit and are vowing a spirited defense—and a possible countersuit.

The 29-year-old socialite was sued Wednesday in Los Angeles for allegedly breaching a contract to promote and wear hair extensions manufactured by Hairtech International Inc. The company is seeking $35 million in damages—10 times what it paid Hilton for her endorsement.

Spokeswoman Dawn Miller said in a statement Thursday that Hilton’s attorneys have deemed the lawsuit is without merits.

Hairtech claimed Hilton did not wear the company’s extensions as promised and missed a launch party in 2007 because she was in jail.

My instathought? Shouldn’t the contract between Hilton ad Hairtech involve some clause that would make the deal void should Paris not attend certain functions? That’s what you pay lawyers for to make sure this sort of stuff is in the fine print.
