Home Schooled American Terrorist

Ran across this today. Apparently the biggest threat to some folks in America is those wacko home schooler terrorists. Who can blame 'em, what with all the home schoolers blowing up the world trade cente.... wait that was Muslims. Well they're certainly responsible for lopping off the heads of those poor kidnapped folks oversea.... oh wait that was Muslims too. Well it is frightening the way they win all those spelling bees! It's just not natural!

What if the US were Iraq?

University of Michigan professor, Juan Cole, poses this question in a post on his blog. Well Juan, I guess if the roles of the US and Iraq were reversed I'd pray for Iraq to come in and help us out of this mess. But remember, this is the good ol' USA! We aren't going to wait until 3,300 Americans are dying every week to do something. In my humble opinion, 9-11 was enough justification to lay the wood to any and every two bit dictator on earth who so much as looks at us funny. If you're actually worried about something like this happening here, take heart. In this country, you have the right to bear arms and defend yourself. With the assault weapons ban gone, now's the perfect time to get that AK-47 you've always wanted.

Soldier's Blog

I found the blog of a US solder currently serving in Iraq. If anyone wants a true, first person account of the war, this is it. A very encouraging site, indeed.

Frank, our prayers are with you and all of the troops currently deployed.

George Bush's Blog

Memo to W:

If you can't laugh at yourself...

...well then, is it OK if I laugh at you because this parody blog is really funny.

I'm still voting for you.

Game of the Day

Tennesee v/s Florida. If you saw this game, you know why I only watch college football. You don't get drama like that in a pro game. I've linked to the box scores but I won't give this one away here in case you get a chance to watch a replay. Games like this are the reason that Florida's average attendance last year was 90,177 and Tennesee's was 105,038 while the Miami Dolphins averaged 73,473 and the Titans even less.

The battle of the tigers (LSU v/s Auburn) wasn't as joyful. LSU's defense held Auburn to 3 points until the last minute and a half of the game but it wasn't the brick wall that won the national championship last year. Marcus Randall has not impressed me yet. JaMarcus Russell has talent but lacks experience. One of them needs to step up. We play Georgia in two weeks and I'm sure they remember getting spanked twice last year by the tigers.

Another Scoop for Dan

Dan Rather blows the lid off another huge story. How does he manage to find this stuff? It's almost like he pulls it out of thin air.

Let The Slaying of God's Creatures Begin

Yeah baby! Teal season begins tomorrow. It's late, I'm tired, I'm almost completely unprepared (last year's shells and a new liscense), the heat index today was somwhere in the 101F range, I can already hear the mosquitos buzzing in my ears, and yet I am compelled to set my alarm to 4:00 am and solidify my position at the top of the food chain. There's nothing like a good day hunting.

Forge Your Own Documents

Memo to Dan Rather:


Please tell me the check to that forger guy was post-dated because I just found you a sweeeeet deal! I just hope for your sake it's not too late to put this puppy to work.

Good luck D.


Big Gun

I ran across this cruising through some blogs tonight. Not that I'm a gun enthusiast (I own shotguns for hunting but that's about it), but I'd definitely have to spend the extra $25 these guys charge to have "HAVE A NICE DAY" engraved on the muzzle. Too funny. I may put that on one of my shotguns.

PETA Fights for Chicken Rights

Talk about misplaced sympathy. Read this attack ad on KFC targeted towards children and tell me these people are not delusional. Chickens are our “friends?” Chicken “moms” will “love” their chicks and “teach them all about life?” Chickens apparently suffer from claustrophobia too. There are so many crazy statements in this thing it’s hard to find a starting point. They make it sound like these chickens lie awake at night wondering how the economy will affect their kids’ future. I can just see the chicken mommy and daddy sitting at the dinner table discussing how much they should donate to the Sierra Club this year.

Give me a break! I’ve lived on a farm with chickens. Whoever wrote this does not know a thing about the social skills of chickens. That’s OK though because there’s not much to know. They make noise, lay eggs, peck the ground and have no problem eating their own crap!

This article is meant to imply (to impressionable children) that animals and humans are of equal importance. No. That is wrong. Humans are superior to animals. I can’t believe there are people who need to have this explained to them.

What really burns me up is these people humanizing chickens to gain sympathy for their cause when there are real humans in this country who desperately need help. If you want to refrain from eating meat for whatever reason, I have no problem with that. But don’t even think about asking me to do the same when Americans are killing over 1 million real, HUMAN babies every year in abortion clinics throughout this country. I’d go vegan today if it would somehow bring about an end to abortion.

I can honestly appreciate the abundance of compassion for innocent animals, but please collectively pull your craniums from your rectums and get your priorities straight. Human rights are, and shall always be, superior to animal rights.

Bottom line: chickens are food, not soylent green.

Cat Crap Coffee?

Yup. It's true. For about $300 per pound, you too can enjoy your very own steaming hot cup of joe made from the finest Indonesian cat turds money can buy. Nothing says "Good Morning" like a warm cup of cat crap. What's that old saying about fools and their money?

Alligator Sauce Piquante

I was informed a few weeks ago that I couldn't possibly have a blog that was in any way associated with Cajun country if I didn't post a recipe every once in a while. I'll buy that. Thus, in order to satisfy the recipe requirements of Cajun culture, I submit the following:

Alligator Sauce Piquante (pronounced pee-CAWNT)
2 lbs. alligator meat (cubed)
2 cups chopped onions
1 large chopped bell pepper
1/3 cup cooking oil
½ cup chopped celery
¼ cup chopped parsley
¼ cup chopped shallots
16 oz. tomato sauce
1 can of Rotel tomatoes
6 oz. sliced mushrooms
2 Tsp. Worcestershire sauce
¼ tsp. basil
1 bay leaf
¼ tsp. oregano
salt & pepper to taste

If you like, you can marinate your gator cubes in wine for about an hour before cooking (up to you). Nothing cooks Cajun like a black iron pot, so I’d use that if you’ve got one handy. If not, use whatever you have. Saute the onions in oil until they are translucent and just starting to turn to a golden brown. You’ll have to keep stirring to keep the onions from burning. Then add the celery and bell pepper and sauté until tender (keep stirring). Add Rotel tomatoes, tomato sauce and seasonings and simmer for about 10 minutes. Now add the mushrooms and drained alligator meat. Cover the pot and let this simmer for about 40 minutes. Add the shallots and parsley and cook uncovered for another 10 minutes. Serve over rice.

Instead of salt and pepper, use what Cajuns use. Tony Chachere’s or Zatarain’s or any one of a multitude of Cajun blended seasonings. This one (scroll to the bottom of the page) is made by a freind of mine who is also in a Cajun band (a real cajun dude). If you're having trouble finding ingredients, try this place.

I’ve yet to cook alligator myself but I’ve eaten it many times. Trust me, it’s delicious. Next time I'll do something that's currently in season down here. Dove season was open labor day weekend, teal (duck) season opens for a couple of weeks starting next weekend, and fish are plentiful year round. They don't call this state the sportsman's paradise for nothing!

Bon Apetite!

The Latest Euphemism for Infanticide

Leave it to the New York Times to print a story like this. Selective reduction is the process by which a woman who is pregnant for more than one child reduces the number of her offspring by killing one or more of her children before they are born. Apparently some women are even proud of this. Memo to this psyco woman's one surviving child: watch your back, you're mom has already killed two of your siblings in a preemptive double homicide. I put this story in my blog to illustrate two points. First, there is no limit to the lies people will tell themselves to avoid guilt and/or discomfort. Second, there is no shortage of sympathetic media outlets to spread these lies. Mother Theresa said it best, “It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish.” Please vote pro-life and encourage everyone you know to do the same.

Oregon State's Stunning Loss

That's right! Not LSU's victory, Oregon State's loss! Not much needs to be said here. LSU looked unprepared for the start of the season and were it not for Oregon state's hapless field goal kicker, they'd be 0-1 as we speak. However... as always... I must digress and turn my attention to the SCOREBOARD!

Zell Miller Delivers One Helluva Speech!

If you did not hear senator Zell Miller's speech at the RNC last night, you missed the best speech of either of the conventions. He made several points that have rarely been brought up during this election and the fact that these issues were brought up by a Democrat makes things even more interesting.

First, Zell listed the myriad of military expenditures that John Kerry had voted against, and then brilliantly gave examples of how each one of these items had been used to defend people both at home (after 9/11) and abroad. Placing these two things side by side illustrates the sharp contrast between who John Kerry wants you to think he is (war hero, purple hearts, etc.) and who he really is (anti-military spending cuts).

Zell then culminated this list of defense cuts by saying something to the effect that after all of these cuts John Kerry is asking us to make him commander in chief of the armed forces. He then quipped, "Armed with what? Spitballs!" This is not only a great zinger, it forces people to think about how ridiculous it is for a man to spend his life cutting the military budget and then ask the American people to place him in charge of the military at a time when defense of our nation is paramount!

Third, he not only blasted John Kerry, he blasted all Democrats for selling out to the far left liberal whacko's of the party. Those who would denounce the uncivilized nature of war via countless UN resolutions while the world falls into ruin at the hands of Islamic lunatics. When Muslim terrorists launched their attack on 9/11 they forever changed the posture of this nation. We were jerked from our collective slouched, half asleep position and forced to snap-to and square away. Like it or not, we are now a nation defending itself against an unseen enemy with no central national affiliation. In truth, this is a religious war waged by Muslim terrorists on the entire world (the USA is merely the biggest target). Ignoring this threat by focusing on the economy or health care or gay marriage will not make it go away. If we do not take action now, we will be faced with threats we may not be able to manage in the future. Zell made a point that only a Democrat could make and not be called partisan. His comment was that at this stage in our nation's history, we need statesmen, not politicians. There are few if any statesmen (outside of Zell) left in the Democrat party as evidenced by the lack of bipartisanship on the issue of defending our country. Instead of putting political differences aside to defend the nation (not to mention the rest of the free world), the leaders of the Democrat party have sought to use the war on terror as a political football to serve their own interests. This, more than anything else, proves that the leaders of the Democrat party don't care about you, or me, or the poor, or gays, or blacks, or immigrants, or education, or the economy, or the snail darter, or any of the people who died on 9/11, or any of the soldiers defending freedom around the globe. All these politicians care about is increasing their own sphere of influence for their own benefit and the rest of the world can go to hell.

Please, Please, Please save our nation from the self serving Democrat politicians and their hoards of "useful idiot" supporters. VOTE REPUBLICAN.
