Three Cheers For New World Law...

Hey kiddies, it is so time to be proud as americans that the Only Course of Action that will be open for some folks will be to plead guilty, anything less and you get to stay in Kafka's Kastle, awaiting a Trial or Metamorphosis.
Mr Hicks would only say that his son felt a guilty plea was the only way "he's going to get out".

"No one is going help him, the Australian Government doesn't care," he said. "It's a way to get home, and that's what he has told us ... He's had five years of absolute hell and I think anyone in that position, if they were offered anything, they would possibly take it."

And sure enough, the guilty plea gives some comfort to Mr Hicks: A prisoner transfer deal means Hicks could serve out any sentence in an Australian jail.

[ cf Guilty plea the best news exhausted father could get ]
But what if there is no other country???

You know, you were a born american, and the Directorate Of State Security Sends you off to the Archipelago to be verified as whether or not you may or may not be one of those persons who could or would have done one of those things that those types of people do....

You Just HAVE to love the Stoners....

Scope This One...
F YOU spent the past week wagering on whether Alberto Gonzalez will still be attorney general come April, you may have missed another Washington scandal almost as depressing as the secret campaign by the Bush administration to replace federal prosecutors perceived as politically disloyal. At the center of the squall, which ended almost as soon as it began, was Smithsonian Secretary Lawrence Small, who resigned yesterday amid allegations that he misused institutional funds throughout his tenure in office.
...
But the most novel item, by far, was the $1.67 million in expenses related to a "hypothetical mortgage" on the 6,500 square foot home, which Small in fact owns outright.

It should go without saying that you can't claim a real, cash reimbursement for a hypothetical expense without crossing an ethical, if not legal, red line.

[ cf Skeletons in the nation's attic ]
WOW DUDE
Like Totally Bong Hitz 4 Jesus Accounting
which does bring a new meaning to the old stand bye notion of "faith based initiative"....

But then again, this is the Country where we accidentally decided to restore the wetlands of one nation based upon our anxiety over the Actual Real Imaginary Threats Which Some Day Could Have Arisen, IF those Wetlands became the Breeding Grounds For Space Aliens And Iranian Flying Saucers And Zombie Technologies!!!!

So I mean, hey kiddies... Uh, that truthier stuff is truthier, especially if you are on the correct side and no one is looking, and there is no other standard test for the truthiNeff of a given reality space...

So why not get a cash back reimpursement for any sort of Actual Real Imaginary Ersatz Hypothetical Possible Expense, since, well, they COULD Some Day Turn Into Actual Expenses, and if we do not deal with them today, then the Terrorists WIN!!!!

The Demonic Nancy Pelosi Voodoo Zombie Dust Bunnies Of Despair Departing On Bong Hitz 4 Jesus in a blue dress to impose their Pirate Canadianist Gays Only Marriage Initiative To Destroy Our White Christian America!!!

Yeah that's the Ticket, the REAL ISSUE!!! Like why is it that the Evil Liberal Media finds these totally irrelevant issues to whine about when they are COVERING UP the reality that Tom DeLay is Still the House Majority Leader, since he would NEVER RETREAT OR SURRENDER even if the Devil Worshippers who oppose the Divinity Of Dubya oppose the True Truthierneff....

Yeah, those Gay HomoZeXuals....

Because we are morer at warer than ever beforerer.

Those Whiners....

Is it just me, or am I just getting tooo bored with pretentions to security like stuff....
[Unknown LJ tag]
I would take so much of the pretentions to security precautions that much more seriously were it not for the silly bits that keep on keeping on... Back when the company was just a starving start up, I walked in, plonked the old Mac on the LAN, asked the IT Geek, "got DHCP?", and he was polite to give me a 'fixed' RFC1918 addr, oh boy...

then my back found the Net, and the folks said, that Guiness the Printer was off of Tesla, which we use for other stuff as well.... and then the "adults" showed up... So now I get to feel safer knowing that I will have to use the foomatic runner, your friend and Mine, the CUPSD folks, to keep tweeking the play, since, well gosh, they now have Password Control on the HP Printer.... Oh Security Enhancements!!!! So now the Freaking SMB wankage URI will be of the form
smb:://userName:passwed@domain/HostName/Printer/
Boy Oh Boy now that is soooo much greater.... since now, we can prevent the Perverts from creating Post Script B/W print outs of Ideological Deviations!!!!

All Hail Great Leader!!! For he has electrolytes, you know, what Plants want...

Some Days Are Just THAT way, if you know what I mean...

My WHINEY friend mononeuron can be such a WHINEY PERSON, and in this case, it was filling out the technical details for filing for the Disabled Person Parking Sticker - and now, so I get to WHINE about it in public, I was looking at the technical details....

and then asked the Pulmonologist, so??? He said, let's check the last run of the whatEverDemonicThingusOfPooh test that is required... and he noted that I was still reasonably well enough ABOVE that line, and as such, was not abled for the Blue Parking!!!

Which I think offends me, since it means that I am most likely Stuck In the Red State Parking Places.... what with the pinko's and commies, and wackJobLoonies...

How AM I suppose to share this set of FEELINGS...

for those of you who have not been following the David Hicks issue - well, gosh, there are some DARK FUGGLIES here - and comedically, one of them is that this is a WHITE GUY!!! Not one of the typical "Sand Niggahs" that the Cool Kids normally whine about...

One has got to laugh at the on going comedy that this guy trained with the KLA to fight against the Serbians, and then winds up getting rejected from the Australian Army, for lack of an education....

Yes, it does not surprise me that the kid winds up trying to defend Kabul from the Northern Alliance... Which for those who may recall, were the Commie Remnant abandoned when the Red Army Pulled Out.... And yeah, selling him to the Americans for A Grand is a nice deal...

I mean, here we are with a kid who was in the pay of the defacto regime, who has spent the last five years as an 'illegal combatant' - and yet, gosh, the fine folks who make that assertion can not appeal to an actual legal trial by which he was identified as having been culled out from the other folks who were 'armed combatants' who were taken on the ground, and hence protected by the Geneva Conventions, and more importantly the american laws specifically implemented, so as to protect the AMERICAN TROOPS who might be detained....

And now, after five years of being detained, the kid finally has to COP to a crime that did not come onto the books, when he was at liberty to commit a crime, but has been put in place to justify the detention to date...

One Has GOT to love the Fruit Bats who are such Pro-War Heroes who have never had to worry about their Joint Ops obligations to warriors who are not from the Good Old USofA, and are wearing uniforms, or providing service and support, from other nations, national groupings, their militias and paramilitary forces.... Ah yes... One so has got to respect the American Whiners....

Since GOSH, today we have made it clear that the President can unilaterally detain anyone, until they are finally willing to confess to any crime, no matter how absurd....

God, but this MUST be a great Day for the Great War Heroes.... Like "Tom 'Never Retreat, Never Surrender' DeLay" and the wonders of the rest of their Great War Heroisms....

Remind me again why I am suppose to believe that being an 'on ward christian soldier' means I have to respect your total hatred of american law??? And more important the Law that has protected American Troops and our allies.... Or is that just ASKING TOO MUCH????

Kids Are Always Cute...

Hey Mom's and Dad's, when a Know Psycho Wack Job who supports torturing says he wants to help with, "Project Safe Childhood", would your first thought be,
Hum... What has the Roman Catholic Church Done For Me Lately????
Or would you jump up and be consoled with
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales talked about how to keep kids safe from online sexual predators in Chicago on Tuesday - but only touched briefly on the controversy that threatens his job in Washington.

"I look forward to work with Congress" on its investigation into the firing of eight U.S. attorneys, Gonzales said at a Chicago news conference that he cut short after just a few minutes. "I believe in ... accountability. Everything that I've done in connection with this matter supports that principle."

[ cf Gonzales touts "Project Safe Childhood" in Chicago ]
And Yes, it is clearly an act of TERRORISM on the part of the Evil Belleville Democrat, one of the Evil Knight Rider Group, of Shrill and Hysterical Left Wing Extremists, that they should even BE SO EVIL as to include:
During Chicago's round-table discussion on child pornography, Gonzales sat next to U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who recently tried and convicted former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby in the CIA leak case.
...
It was Gonzales' first appearance with Fitzgerald since the disclosure earlier this month that Fitzgerald was ranked as "not distinguished" by a former aide to Gonzales.
...
Fitzgerald's Illinois office has also taken on public corruption cases, convicting former Gov. George Ryan and dozens of people in an ongoing investigation at Chicago City Hall.

( op cit )
But I guess we can Play Nice becausse of
Gonzales told the forum - which also was attended by Attorney General Lisa Madigan and several state's attorneys - that state and federal officials must work more closely than ever in what he called "a military campaign."
( op cit ( emphasis Mine))
Since if there is anything we as patriotic americans look for in an Attorney General is the restoration of Martial Law!!!

So that it is Going to be the True Militarism that Brings and Armed Jesus to everyone's Dash Board!!!

No more mere 'tiger in the tank', if you do not have a Tank Killer Jesus, then the Terrorists WIN!!!

Seriously Ugly Deep Seated Angst....

as a Side Effect about the mapping of Freedom to Freedom, as in Freedom Fries, because no one was allowed to mention that there was Freedom, or that Americans had ever supported Freedom, it struck me that one of the most evil of curses had been
What is wrong with you, you stinking hippie, do you think you live in Freedom....
and it worries me that this may not have meant what some folks thought it was suppose to mean...
