hunt against Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, and have formally closed the criminal
investigation after FOUR YEARS.

Arpaio’s case went before a grand jury where it was alleged that
Arpaio used the powers of his office to target “political enemies”.
The DOJ will continue
the civil case against Arpaio alleging “racial profiling” against Latinos.
Arpaio has made headlines of late forming an investigative posse to look into President Obama's identity documents where many irregularities were discoverd. Surely these "investigations" would not be politically motivated by the Obama administration? Nah....
The Good Mormon: President Romney (oops typo) hightailed it to Lousiana to see the damage from Hurrican Isaac, offer support, and meet with exceedingly competent Lousiana Governor, Bobby Jindal.
Fake President Obama could not be bothered so he went to Texas to fundraise. Obama parties while black people drown.
The Evil Mormon: Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, aka The Whispering Idiot said:
“It is the height of hypocrisy for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan to make a pretense of showing sympathy for the victims of Hurricane Isaac when their policies would leave those affected by this disaster stranded and on their own. This is yet another example of Mitt Romney’s extreme right wing agenda, which asks middle class families to sacrifice in order to protect millionaires and billionaires from paying their fair share.”
Methinks that the Dems are a bit sensitive to this visit. Hmmm?
The Federation of Quebec Maple Syrup Producers discovered
the theft of 10 million pounds of maple syrup during a routine inventory check
at a reserve warehouse about 100 miles north east of Montreal. The value of the
heist? $30.4 million U.S. Dollars.
Quebec produces 75% of the world’s
maple syrup and they have been hording a 37 million pound strategic reserve for
more than a decade to address syrup shortages in the marketplace.
Of course, most of us are
now picturing trench-coated Inspector Clouseau following a trail of waffle
crumbs out of the door of the warehouse followed by a group of Canadian Mounties
on horseback surrounded by a pack of syrup -sniffing beagles.
In the July /August issue of State Magazine, The State Department’s Diversity Officer, John
Robinson, pens a jaw-dropping piece called, “Wait, What Did You Just Say?”
- a fascinating look into the nonsensical ramblings of the liberal mind.
Sadly, Robinson does not seem to realize that this piece is
like something out of Mad Magazine as
he seriously tackles the "problem" of language when we “interact with individuals
different from ourselves.” But what can we expect? Robinson was originally the
diversity officer at the IRS. I am sure Wesley Snipes appreciated his hard
First, Robinson attacks NIKE for its Black and Tan sneaker, which stupid NIKE thought referenced a beer mixture. Nope. The Black and Tans
were a military group who committed atrocities against Irish civilians. What he
fails to mention is that they existed for only a couple of years after 1920.
So here is the list of THINGS THAT CANNOT BE UTTERED:
Hold down the fort: This phrase references the
evil white man trying to historically defend themselves against Native American
attacks common in the 1600s and 1700s.
Going Dutch: Another slur against the Dutch
implying that they were cheap - again 17th
Rule of thumb: Allegedly a phrase used to
determine the acceptable size of a switch that a man could use to legally beat
his wife. Of course, wife beating has never been legal in the U.S. although there is some suggestion that it was legal in the U.K prior to the 1660s. The phrase has been a
common measurement for hundreds of years in carpentry.
Handicap: This phrase supposedly ties physically
challenged individuals to beggars. Once again no proof of this one either. Other
than in other countries in other centuries where debilitated people who could
not work and were many times reduced to begging.
Somebody let the Congressional Black Caucus know that the United States has a new
resident: a 24-year-old Cuban woman named Glenda Murillo Diaz (pictured above in black).
into American from Mexico at the Nuevo Laredo/Laredo border – an easy 2 minute
walk across the bridge. Cubans are allowed to stay in the U.S. according to the
“wet foot /dry foot” policy – once they reach U.S. land they are allowed to
defect and stay in the U.S.
Wha's the big
news about yet another Cuban defection? This girl is the daughter of Cuban Vice
President Marino Murillo, the likely successor to Raul Castro, and the person
responsible for Cuba’s implementation of profound economic reforms.
Juan Tamayo of the Miami Nuevo Herald reports that her father
reacted emotionally to the news and that Glenda is staying with an aunt in
Part of the U.S. liberal agenda in
past years has been to portray Cuba in a positive light, citing government
healthcare and promoting Cuba as a star in the Communist world – a shining example
of the communist liberal utopia.
Diaz’s defection signals another
side that, despite her father’s capitalist reforms, it is too little too late for
a 24- year -old looking to start a new life with new opportunity. Glenda’s
defection is most likely going to be a PR nightmare for Cuba who will seek to
distance themselves from the realities of their failed system and the message
that Glenda’s defection is sending top the outside world.

This is what an 82 year old man who has garnered the fame, fortune and the family of most people's dreams..who has never given a rat's ass what people think of him EXCEPTwhere it is necessary in his achievement of excellence in art: filmaking.
After this public performace, the youngsters in Hollyweird will no doubt peg him as a doddering old fool from some ancient conservative time, but continue to swoon at the notion of beig picked to star in one of his films and desperately seek his approval.
There are several reasons to love Clint Eastwood. One of them is that he is the mystery speaker at the Republican National Convention tonight- choosing to participate in what is arguably the most important election of our lifetime.
Clint Eastwood has been in the public eye since
first becoming a contract actor with Universal Studios in the 1950s. Raised in
blue-collar Oakland, Eastwood worked odd jobs as a hay bailer, truck driver, and
logger. Later Eastwood joined the Army Special Services where he met actors
David Janssen and Martin Milner, who convinced Eastwood to move to Los Angeles
and try acting.
Eastwood made a career out of westerns including TV series, Rawhide, and later, playing tough cops
where he simultaneously honed his craft of directing. Eastwood won Academy Awards
for films Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby and an Irving G. Thalberg
Memorial Award in 1994.
tended to vote Republican, but, like many, was opposed to wars in Viet Nam, Korea,
Afghanistan and Iraq. Eastwood tends toward Libertarianism. Politics has bee more
than just hobby for Eastwood - he was elected mayor his home town of Carmel
in 1986. Later Eastwood was appointed to the
California State Park and Recreation Commission by Gov. Davis. Gov.Schwarzenegger appointed Eastwood
to the California Film Commission and he
also acted as a spokesman for Take Pride in America, an agency of the United States Department of the Interior which advocates taking responsibility for natural,
cultural, and historic resources.
In 1988 made the film Bird about legendary jazz musician
Charlie Parker. Black Director Spike Lee criticized Eastwood for making the
film saying a white guy shouldn’t make it. Eastwood said: "He was complaining when I did Bird. Why would a white guy be doing
that? I was the only guy who made it, that's why. He could have gone ahead and
made it. Instead he was making something else."
Lee continued his criticism over the years
saying the Changeling (set in Los
Angeles before the city had a large group of African-Americans) was too white.
Eastwood’s response: "What are you going to do, you going to tell a
fuckin' story about that? Make it look like a commercial for an equal
opportunity player? I'm not in that game. I'm playing it the way I read it
historically, and that's the way it is. When I do a movie and it's 90% black,
like Bird, then I use 90% black
Lee: "Clint Eastwood made two films about Iwo Jima that ran for more than
four hours total, and there was not one Negro actor on the screen. If you
reporters had any balls you'd ask him why. There's no way I know why he did
that ... But I know it was pointed out to him and that he could have changed
it. It's not like he didn't know."
Eastwood Response: "The story is Flags of Our Fathers, the famous
flag-raising picture, and they didn't do that. If I go ahead and put an
African-American actor in there, people'd go: 'This guy's lost his mind.' I
mean, it's not accurate." Referring to Lee, he added: "A guy like him
should shut his face."
Later in 2005, Clint Eastwood, when asked about
Director Michael Moore, said
if Michael Moore ever shows up at his door with a camera, he will kill the
controversial movie director.
“Josh had a really big heart, and he just loved giving people what they wanted,” said Josh Flaherty’s mother Linda. “When he told me about the project, I thought to myself, Josh is a smart kid and he’s made good at this Internet thing so far. What could go wrong?
Josh Flaherty, 22, of New Jersey met an untimely end seeking internet humor and fame when his prank ended in catastrophe.
Joshua passed away from a bacterial infection resulting from a gastrointestinal perforation.
What caused the perforation and subsequent septic infection?
You guessed it: rectal insertion of ten pounds of hickory smoked bacon.
