Just for a laugh

The 23rd Qualm:

Bush is my shepherd; I dwell in want.
He maketh logs to be cut down in national forests.

He leadeth trucks into the still wilderness.
He restoreth my fears.

He leadeth me in the paths of international disgrace for his ego’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of pollution and war, I will find no exit, for thou art in office.

Thy tax cuts for the rich and thy media control, they discomfort me.
Thou preparest an agenda of deception in the presence of thy religion.

Thou anointest my head with foreign oil.
My health insurance runneth out.

Surely megalomania and false patriotism shall follow me all the days of thy term,
And my jobless child shall dwell in my basement forever.

An American

To Kill an American

You probably missed it in the rush of news last week, but there was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a newspaper an offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American, any American.

So, an Australian dentist wrote an editorial the following day to let everyone know what an American is. So they would know when they found one. (Good one, mate!!!!)

“An American is English, or French, or Italian, Irish, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An American may also be Canadian, Mexican, African, Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Australian, Iranian, Asian, or Arab, or Pakistani or Afghan.

An American may also be a Comanche, Cherokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navaho, Apache, Seminole or one of the many other tribes known as native Americans.

An American is Christian, or he could be Jewish, or Buddhist, or Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims in America than in Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to worship as each of them chooses.

An American is also free to believe in no religion. For that he will answer only to God, not to the government, or to armed thugs claiming to speak for the government and for God.

An American lives in the most prosperous land in the history of the world. The root of that prosperity can be found in the Declaration of Independence, which recognizes the God given right of each person to the pursuit of happiness.

An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about every other nation in the world in their time of need, never asking a thing in return.

When Afghanistan was over-run by the Soviet army 20 years ago, Americans came with arms and supplies to enable the people to win back their country!

As of the morning of September 11, Americans had given more than any other nation to the poor in Afghanistan. Americans welcome the best of everything…the best products, the best books, the best music, the best food, the best services. But they also welcome the least.

The national symbol of America, The Statue of Liberty , welcomes your tired and your poor, the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, the homeless, tempest tossed. These in fact are the people who built America.

Some of them were working in the Twin Towers the morning of September 11, 2001 earning a better life for their families. It’s been told that the World Trade Center victims were from at least 30 different countries, cultures, and first languages, including those that aided and abetted the terrorists.

So you can try to kill an American if you must. Hitler did. So did General Tojo, and Stalin, and Mao Tse-Tung, and other blood-thirsty tyrants in the world. But, in doing so you would just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular people from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit, everywhere, is an American.

America Kicks Ass

The Budweiser Story (not a joke) This is TRUE!

How Budweiser handled those who laughed at those who died on the 11th
Of September, 2001…Thought you might like to know what happened in
A little town north of Bakersfield, California.

After you finish reading this, please forward this story on to others
So that our nation and people around the world will know about those
Who laughed when they found out about the tragic events in New York,
Pennsylvania, and the Pentagon.

On September 11th, a Budweiser employee was making a delivery to a
Convenience store in a California town named McFarland. He knew of
The tragedy that had occurred in New York when he entered the
Business to find the two Arabs, who owned the business, whooping and
Holler ing to show their approval and support of this treacherous
Attack.

The Budweiser employee went to his truck, called his boss and told
Him of the very upsetting event! He didn’t feel he could be in that
Store with those horrible people. His boss asked him, “Do you think
You could go in there long enough to pull every Budweiser product and
Item our beverage company sells there? We’ll never deliver to them
Again.” The employee walked in, proceeded to pull every single
Product his beverage company provided and left with an incredible
Grin on his face. He told them never to bother to call for a
Delivery again. Budweiser happens to be the beer of choice for that
Community. Just letting you know how Kern County handled this
Situation.

And Now The Rest Of The Story:

It seems that the Bud driver and the Pepsi man are neighbors. Bud
Called Pepsi and told him. Pepsi called his boss who told him to pull
All Pepsi products as well!!! That would include Frito Lay, etc.
Furthermore, word spread and all vendors followed suit! At last
Report, the store was closed indefinitely. Good old American Passive-
Aggressive A$$ Whoopin!

Pass this along, America needs to know that we’re all working
Together!

If you can read this… Thank a teacher… If you are reading it in
English….THANK A SOLDIER!!!
God Bless America !!

*sigh*

Yes, I had to completely and restart over. Completely and totally pisses me off, but I can’t really help it. Fucking bug corrupted all my files 🙁

Now I gotta work on yet another theme, because I lost the previous one I had (files corrupted), and re-add all my codes and things. Wish me luck on that, because I’m gonna need it. I think I’m going to use the “Sig-ables” from Shimmery Daze for it. 🙂

Potty training of the monkey is going semi-well. She has fits and spurts of peeing on it. Only 3 pull-ups a day, not including the wake-up change 🙂 I think that’s pretty damn good for her 🙂

Ethan’s being his normal butt-holish self, :lol:. He’s getting into everything, screaming all the time (I’m half deaf now courtesy of him), and eating like a cow, *snort*. Little guy makes me full watching him eat.

Kinda Pissed

If it ain’t one thing, it’s another. Visited Manda’s site. She got hacked. Lovely. Now, I’ve found that the fuckers who did it also put on grayware, and PC-Cillian is picking it up, but only to “warn” me about it. Other than that, it can’t figure out exactly what it is. Virus scan isn’t picking anything up. The spyware scan didn’t get it. Re-got Adaware and Spy Bot. So far neither sees it. So, right now, I’m fucking screwed, because I look on Trend-Micro’s site for how to get rid of it, and they’re not giving me jack.

Now, to top it off, my blog is all fucked up. No images are showing that have to do with my themes. *throws tantrum* That’s gotta do with aMember, WP, and the like with security flaws. The WP one is well-known, yet they don’t do anything at all to fix it. I’ve got the newest fucking version out. Yet my shit is still getting fucked with. And here I was thinking I was safe because I’ve got the newest version. Yeah, fucking right!

I wrote that earlier today. Things are a little better now. I switched to another area, and seem to be having no problems now. I had a grayware that was corrupting my files. Seems to be the same thing that was corrupting everyone else’s blogs, as far as I can tell. Wouldn’t be surprised. PC-Cillian said it wasn’t a malicious file, except when in conjunction with other buggies. I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s what caused the file corruptions everywhere (and yes, I just said that, but re-iterating)
