Vicente Fox - You rat bastard. [Dave]

Vicente Fox makes an obvious racial slur and then tries to back down.
Fox made the comment Friday during a public appearance in Puerto Vallarta, saying: "There's no doubt that Mexican men and women full of dignity, willpower and a capacity for work are doing the work that not even blacks want to do in the United States."
Did he just say....oh my he did.
Fox's spokesman, Ruben Aguilar, said Mexican and foreign news media have misinterpreted the remark as a racial slur. He said the president was speaking in defense of Mexican migrants as they come under attack by the new U.S. immigration measures that include a wall along the U.S.-California border.
Misinterpreted? As in lost in translation? 'Cause it seems pretty cut and dry to me...
"The president was just telling the truth," said Celedonio Gonzalez, a 35-year-old carpenter who worked illegally in Dallas for six months in 2001. "Mexicans go to the United States because they have to. Blacks want to earn better wages, and the Mexican because he is illegal takes what they pay him."
The difference is the "blacks" are here legally, and you Paco, are not. They should get the better wages because that's what living in such a great country affords. It's a competative market, and if it weren't for the illegal hiring practices, then competition would win out for the best labor, not the cheapest.

BREAKING: [Dave]

NEWSWEEK RETRACT STORY!

I'm sure this will be met with the usual "The evil Americans still did it, now they cover it up" from the hardline / islamofacists.

Ok Mullah, go kill some more people, whatever gets your rocks off, but looks out for the ones in Humvee's they're some bad mother F'rs...

I'm seriously perplexed, the DU crowd thinks Bush is a moron, the elite think Rove is a genius, and everyone on the outside thinks the US government is a conspiracy monster keeping them down. What the hell is that all about?

Sissy.

I think you are running away. From what? I don't know. I haven't talked to you in many months. I have been busy training to kill the same assholes who attacked us on 9/11.

"I frown upon people who's sole purpose in life is to make money from their blog."

Don't let other people ruin the things you enjoy doing. Money is THE driving force in our known universe. It comes before sex, and alcohol. I hate money. Unfortunately I need it to accomplish some essential tasks such as eating.

Well, my point is that if you enjoy blogging, then keep doing it. You wouldn't stop riding, shooting, snowboarding, or bangin' hot chicks just because other people get paid to do it, would you?

over and out.

What the fuck? [Dave]

Mike is what I'd consider a good friend, even though we live about 1000 miles away we chat online almost everyday. Now, he pulls this shit. What the fuck? You could have at least given me a heads up so I could send you off in gay porn fashion like you're used to. Now, all I've got is guest blogger access to a site you've abandoned. Even Amish is pissed, he writes:

Dave,
In between cursing the "English" and throwing bleech filled water bombs at their kids, I noticed that Mike was leaving. This crushes me, because even though it's a sin, he's the only man I've ever truly loved. (Besides Jeff Gannon) I'll say a prayer for his heathen soul, and then go snort some crank.

--Amish


See that Mike? The man who created the "Insta-Malkin--lanche" is pissed, and for good reason. Granted, we only wrote at a fourth grade level, but man that was my senior year. There's only one thing that can describe the heartache and misery of this moment, and that would be the lyrical stylings of one Motley Crue.

I could face a mountain
But I could never climb alone
I could start another day
But how many, just don't know
You're the reason the sun shines down
And the nights, they don't grow cold
Only you that I'll hold when I'm young
Only you...as we grow old

This cartoonist is an Idiot

The only way this could have been interpreted worse, would have been if the guy had been hitting the dog with a slipper (common American cultural iconography), as being hit with a shoe is just about the biggest insult you can lay upon a muslim. Besides seeing his wife's face that is.

In response to Michele's post

Here's my current best of/workout mix:
1) Walking is still honest - Against Me
2) Dai Th Flu - Deftones (the only decent deftones song)
3) 94 Hours - As I Lay Dying
4) Shit stroll - Against Me!
5) Mother Superior - Good Riddance
6) Today's Empires, tomorrows Ashes - Propaghandi
7) The Fiction We Live - From Autumn to Ashes
8) Fighter - Street Dogs
9) Eulogy for an Angel - From Autumn to Ashes
10) Killing you now - Tool cover of some other obscure band
11) Chapter Four - Avenged Sevenfold
12) Before I forget - Slipknot
13) Your sweet six six six - H.I.M.
14) Unholy confessions - Avenged Sevenfold
15) Shelter - Icon of Coil
16) Nation States - Propaghandi

Excellent workout mix if I do say so myself.

If any of you guys have some good workout songs, please post 'em in the comments. I'm always looking for new stuff, and now that I'm out of college, I'm finding it harder and harder to find music I actually like without rehashing the old bullshit I've listened to for 15 years. So, honestly, anything'd be appreciated.

Haiku contest!

Making fun of Ace's soon to be off the air radio show... heh.

My weekend reading

This book, "The Life of Pi" came highly recommended by a couple friends of mine. Ended up steaming through it yesterday afternoon. Not what I expected. The book was touted to leave the reader believing in God by the end of it (which is also what one of the characters said)... however I don't think that reviewer read the same book I did. While this was an awesome (very entertaining) book, the end of it kicked me square in the face and left me depressed. While the book isn't 100% what I expected, it was a raucous story of one boys will to survive. I would say this should be required reading for all High School students, part of the reason being the boy was only 16 to have gone through such an ordeal.

As you've guessed, I'm trying to tell as little as possible about the story as you really should go check it out. Feel free to read what they have to say about it at amazon, rest assured you're not going to see any spoilers, nor are you going to get any more info than what's on the back cover. :)

Basically, if you're looking for a fun book you can bust out in 4-5 hours, this is it. If you have already read it, I'd like to hear your take in the comments (no spoilers for those who haven't read it - heh).

Right. On.

Who's the asshole now!



Haha! Yeah bitch, and guess who I nailed in the copy que (though I missed it with the screenie...)

Heh.

Cheer up!



Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm... Lindsay Lohan.....

Holy crap I'm perplexed....[Dave]

Part of me wants to go trolling, part of me is interested in the unintentional comedy factor, and a third part of me is utterly disguted...

'Whore College' Offers Hands-On Training

"We are still illegal," instructor Kimberlee Cline said before her 20-minute demonstration. "If we want to be treated as business professionals, we need to act ethically within the industry.


...

Several students went to lengths to explain that they see themselves as inheritors of a proud tradition — specialists with a choice instead of exploited victims. Sporting nary a stiletto heel among them, their expressed reasons for turning to sex work — an umbrella term that encompasses everything from exotic dancing and acting in pornographic films to turning tricks — were as varied as their hair colors and body types.


There's that comedy factor...

"My own personal experience has been negative and positive, as with any job," said Kymberly Cutter, 36, a mother of two from Tucson who returned to prostitution two years ago to boost her income and regards it as part of a journey in "personal self-discovery." Her children, ages 7 and 9, know what she does for a living, she said.


Now, I'm disgusted....

Erin O'Bryn, 36, who has appeared on adult television networks, worked in massage parlors, owned an escort referral service and last year ran for Congress in Hawaii, said wearing a power suit and good heels dissuades clients from thinking they can take advantage of her.


A whore running for Congress? At least she's got the balls to admit it.

What could have been an interesting post

Turns into "straw man" central.

Then again, it's slashdot geeks... they're probably all a bunch of 15 year old dorkalects (just invented that one, dork+derilect = dorkalect).

(And yes folks, my straw man was a joke)

We're goin down that road

Not to jump right in with slippery slope fallacies, but where the fuck will this lead?

My answer: Nowhere I want to be.

Fucking pols.

h/t: Thrak.

Another gem today.
(2005-05-05) -- Executives at Ford and General Motors today challenged a move by Standard & Poor's to downgrade the big automakers' debt to 'junk' status.

In a teleconference with institutional investors, they made a vigorous pitch for buying what they called "quality-checked" or "certified pre-owned" bonds.

"'Junk bond' has such a negative sound," said an unnamed GM spokesman. "A man can't come home to his wife and say 'Honey, I bought some junk bonds today.' We need to give our non-investment-grade debt a name that conveys prestige, style, success and hope for a better tomorrow."

The executives suggested that investors think of GM and Ford debt as 'creampuff bonds' or 'genuine classic bonds'.

Both automakers' stock prices dropped sharply today with GM selling at $30.86/share and Ford at $9.70/share, or best offer.

NEWSFLASH

Paris Hilton is a bigger idiot than we originally thought...



No words...

Since it seems there is still confusion about the roles various groups play in the Iraq situation, let's clarify one more time.

Insurgents = Terrorists. NOT freedom fighters, NOT resistance, NOT rebels...murderers.

US Military = Facilitators of a future for Iraq and her people.

The below pic should help clarify. A sad, tragic, painful, yet, in all its pain, beautiful sight that tells more of a story than any journalist out there.
A US soldier doing his best to be with a child who was fatally wounded in today's terrorist bombing.

MSFT getting into the auto biz?

Everyone remembers that old joke? ...

Well it's |-| much closer to being reality.

RETARD POETRY!

Where else?

Don't miss this kick-ass movie review(s) while you're at it either.

My entry?
Haiku for morons

Rosie plays a tard
She's such a slobbering fool
Kind of like bloggers

Tasers don't kill people

Cops do.

Effing disgusting how this whole article focuses on the eeeeeeeevils of the Joo's the Taser, yet says nothing about:
Police did not say exactly how many times the man was zapped.
Or that in previous instances it takes (9) tazings to kill another guy. Seriously though, how many times to you have to taze a fucking 24-year old man in order to kill him. Did they sit there and keep tazing him after he went unconscious?

Fucking cops.

RELATED UPDATE: Have you all seen that vid where the drunk guy gets pulled over and is tazed like 5 times by that cop? Every time he's hit, he just flat-f*ck falls on the ground. It's as if every muscle in his body turns to jelly...

"Amazing"

Go ahead and file this under, "Boy, I'm glad we killed Terri so quickly."

Leather jacket help?

Last weekend in San Francisco I picked up this leather jacket for about $35. The color and cut are exactly what I was looking for, however it's got these two creases down the front. I guess they're just from sitting on a hanger for a long-ass time. I need to figure out how to get rid of them. The roommate suggested I get a couple wet towels and iron it out. :/ Anyone else have other ideas?
