Maggie May... -
So my loving mother is trying to hook me up with someone again. I guess her long-time friend has a niece named Magie that's single.
Now, I have no idea what this woman is like. The shallow side of me is wondering if she's blonde or brunette, thin or pudgy, blind, deaf, crippled, or missing various limbs or organs. But can you blame me for wondering these things? I have never been on a real "blind date" before, so I have no idea what to expect. I hope, at least, she can have an orgasm.
So we've e-mailed each other a few times, short and sweet as they were, and she seems pretty intelligent. We're supposed to meet for ice cream and maybe a movie. I suppose I shouldn't worry- my mother knows what I like in women, and if I can't trust my mother, who can I trust? On the other hand, I have put my mother through some pretty hellish things in the past, and there's plenty enough reson for revenge.

Online Dating Services -
Why is it that I only get e-mails from unattractive girls when I use the online dating services? I guess it's better than the porn ads I used to get through these things. Then again, you can never have too much porn.
Ann Coulter -
"Either we're removing a dictator who currently has plans to fund terrorism against American citizens or – if Bush is completely wrong and Eleanor Clift is completely right – we're just removing a dictator who plans to terrorize a lot of people in the region, but not Americans specifically. Even for someone like me, who doesn't want America to be the world's policeman, the risk of precipitous action against Saddam Hussein doesn't keep me up at night.
"As Bush said, after detailing some of Saddam Hussein's charming practices: "If this is not evil, then evil has no meaning." It's not as if anyone is worried that we're making a horrible miscalculation and could be removing the Iraqi Abraham Lincoln by mistake." - Ann Coulter

Michael Moore is a big, fat idiot -
Tonight I was watching The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Don't ask me why I was, Jon Stewart's anti-Bush views make me ill, but I was. When he introduced his guest, Michael Moore, the crowd went wild; as if this guy weren't a complete buffoon. During their exchange of anti-Bush sentments and other similar guffs of hot air, Moore said something to the effect of:
"I don't even think these people [the Bush administration] are human... ...they're not even our same human species"
Granted, that's not an exact quote; it's from memory, but conveyed the same message.
This guy is such a whacko, he makes Michael Jackson look normal.
Go here for some exaples of his insane political ramblings and conspiracy theories.

Democrats used to be anti-Saddam... -
...but now they aren't. What happened?
Chew on this for a bit:
"About three in four Americans support the assault launched on Iraq, according to a CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll taken Wednesday night."
-cnn.com, December 17, 1998
"Clinton has bombed six sovereign countries during the past year: Iraq, Sudan, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria and Albania. None of those countries attacked or threatened us or our allies. For the first time in history, the United States was the aggressor in war, thus forfeiting our reputation as a peace-loving nation. For the first time in history, a President took us into war when we were not attacked or threatened, and where we have no discernable national interest."
""[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs." -- From a letter signed by Joe Lieberman, Dianne Feinstein, Barbara A. Milulski, Tom Daschle, & John Kerry among others on October 9, 1998"
-Right Wing News
""The community of nations may see more and more of the very kind of threat Iraq poses now: a rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists. If we fail to respond today, Saddam and all those who would follow in his footsteps will be emboldened tomorrow." -- Bill Clinton in 1998"

And for those who have argued for Bush's impeachment due to his military actions without a declaration of war by congress, this is for you:
How America Goes to War
Finish the job -
"the entire American political class and diplomatic establishment insist we must stay in Iraq and finish what George W. Bush started, even if it was premised on lies, self delusions, and grandiose dreams of omnipotence. To do otherwise would be to embarrass our leaders, cause the US government to lose face, and imply to the world that Washington lacks resolve. Excuse me, but this movie's been shown before. I believe I hear the 1960s calling." -Webocracy
I can't believe that some idiot is taking this angle on the Iraq-Vietnam comparison.
Debt Free!! -
As of Friday, October 10th, yours truly is 100% debt free!! God, is it a good feeling. Of course, I can only say that until tomorrow; that's when my new cell phone bill kicks in.
Check out the new P90 Savage Hunter at Redwolf Airsoft. Crimeny is this thing bogged down with accessories. I bet I've got longer range due to my AK-47 tight bore barrel, but this thing wins in the intimidation department. I think my next upgrade will be the 1500-round box magazine. That's, uh... like four hi-caps. That oughtta contradict the title of this post well enough.

Arnold Swastikagger -
I can’t believe the liberals are attacking Arnold Schwarzenegger, calling him a Hitler-sympathizer. According to ABCnews.com, the quotes reported by the news media needed to be put into context of Arnold’s admiration of powerful men. Hitler was a powerful man; nobody can disagree to that.
And I quote Schwarzenegger: “I always despise everything that Hitler stood for.”
This is just a case of the Democrats freaking out to the poll results of last week that show Arnold leading by a landslide. They dig up anything and everything they can, and when it’s not good enough for them, they bend the truth to their liking. So typical…
Give me a friggin’ break. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a liberal. They only attack him because he’s running as a Republican.

No Weapons? -
From the Democratic Underground:
"So weapons inspector David Kay has returned from Iraq, and the news is: no weapons of mass destruction. Oh sure, they uncovered one or two programs and discovered that the Iraqis might have wanted to have weapons at some point in the future, but, uh, no actual weapons."
Yes, David Kay has returned. And the news is EXACTLY what was reported by the White House during the months leading up to and during the war.
"What have we found and what have we not found in the first 3 months of our work?
"We have discovered dozens of WMD-related program activities and significant amounts of equipment that Iraq concealed from the United Nations during the inspections that began in late 2002. The discovery of these deliberate concealment efforts have come about both through the admissions of Iraqi scientists and officials concerning information they deliberately withheld and through physical evidence of equipment and activities that ISG has discovered that should have been declared to the UN.
"In addition to the discovery of extensive concealment efforts, we have been faced with a systematic sanitization of documentary and computer evidence in a wide range of offices, laboratories, and companies suspected of WMD work. The pattern of these efforts to erase evidence - hard drives destroyed, specific files burned, equipment cleaned of all traces of use - are ones of deliberate, rather than random, acts.
"With regard to biological warfare activities, which has been one of our two initial areas of focus, ISG teams are uncovering significant information - including research and development of BW-applicable organisms, the involvement of Iraqi Intelligence Service (IIS) in possible BW activities, and deliberate concealment activities. All of this suggests Iraq after 1996 further compartmentalized its program and focused on maintaining smaller, covert capabilities that could be activated quickly to surge the production of BW agents.
"Let me turn now to chemical weapons (CW). In searching for retained stocks of chemical munitions, ISG has had to contend with the almost unbelievable scale of Iraq's conventional weapons armory, which dwarfs by orders of magnitude the physical size of any conceivable stock of chemical weapons. For example, there are approximately 130 known Iraqi Ammunition Storage Points (ASP), many of which exceed 50 square miles in size and hold an estimated 600,000 tons of artillery shells, rockets, aviation bombs and other ordinance. Of these 130 ASPs, approximately 120 still remain unexamined. As Iraqi practice was not to mark much of their chemical ordinance and to store it at the same ASPs that held conventional rounds, the size of the required search effort is enormous.
"While searching for retained weapons, ISG teams have developed multiple sources that indicate that Iraq explored the possibility of CW production in recent years, possibly as late as 2003. When Saddam had asked a senior military official in either 2001 or 2002 how long it would take to produce new chemical agent and weapons, he told ISG that after he consulted with CW experts in OMI he responded it would take six months for mustard. Another senior Iraqi chemical weapons expert in responding to a request in mid-2002 from Uday Husayn for CW for the Fedayeen Saddam estimated that it would take two months to produce mustard and two years for Sarin."
Read the whole thing for yourself.
The Democratic Underground is such a horrible website. In fact, I loathe to link to it, yet I do only to expose their extremism. Their fanatical views are so predisposed as anti-conservatism, it seems that they overlook the truth. And when there is a lack of weakpoints in a right wing viewpoint, they twist and contort the truth. "Uncovered one or two programs"?
The idea that Saddam wanted weapons in the future obviously isn't enough to justify stopping him. That's just it, though... he DID have them and he DID use them.
So, what does it take? Another 9-11?
We didn't see a fraction of the leftists against the Iraq war stand up against the war in Afghanistan. Perhaps it's the fact that Saddam is a tyrranical, bloodthirsty, genocidal bastard that they didn't oppose him. Stalin was a lefty...
Airsoft 10-5-03 -
Yesterday was our latest Airsoft outing. For those not familiar with the sport, click here. This was our first skirmish at the field in Cedarburg and I must say that the field was pretty nice. Just the right amount of trees and underbrush, though the high amount of fallen trees was annoying. The field was smaller than I had anticipated, but the rough terrain made crossing the short field undesirable.
On a related note, this was my first skirmish using the new battery. It friggin' rocks! Lemme tell you, if you're just getting into Airsoft, this should be one of your first upgrades.
If you're curious, I own a Tokyo Marui FN P90-TR with AK-47 tight-bore barrel, BSA Red Dot sight, and custom 9.6v 1000mAh NiMH battery. I'd love to post some pictures of it and the field, but I have to first figure out how to upload the damned things.
Crimeny, I was tearing up the field with this thing.
One thing about the P-90: there are issues with the high capacity magazine. When inserting the mag, it's pretty easy to unwind the spring and have your ammo pour out all over the ground. Just make sure you snap the mag in with a bit of force. That should alleviate the problem. There was a guy (I think from Section 8) that was working on fixing this problem, but I haven't heard from that group in a while. By the way, check out Group W's website.

Mirrodin will be released tomorrow. I'm excited... We've got a draft planned for tomorrow night and later I get to open my booster box. My friends will just have to wait until Saturday to see me.
Maybe wunn or (*hic*) too drinks, Ossifer -
As of last Tuesday, Wisconsin's legal blood-alcohol level while driving is now 0.08%, down from 0.10%.
Our governor, Jim Doyle, is an idiot. First he wins his seat by swearing up and down that he "will not raise taxes", then throws away a movement to freeze property taxes, then enacts "fees" that are not specifically "taxes". Now he lowers the drinking limit to .08. What is he thinking?
What will 0.08 not accomplish? 0.08 will not prevent Mr.-I-can-drive-home-after-two-six-packs-with-no-problem from driving home. 0.08 will not stop this guy from running over little Sally Sue who happens to be riding her bike across Appleton Avenue. 0.08 will not stop or reduce in any way the real problem.
What will 0.08 do? It will make people more hesitant to drink with dinner. No more going to a friend's house to watch a Packer game (there will obviously be beer there).
How will 0.08 affect me? Well, I won't be buying myself a drink if I'm the driver. I can't have a beer with my lunch anymore. I'll be damned if I go out for a drink with the work crowd at 5:00 on Fridays anymore. No more taking cold medicine before driving to work.
It's a bunch of horseshit. If you ask me, Doyle should be concentrating on making penalties for drunken drivers more severe. Nothing stops Mr.-I-can-drive-home-after-two-six-packs-with-no-problem better than threatening to lock him up for good after another OWI.
