Friday's Pibgorn made me bust a gut. I don't think I would ever condone actually shooting useless politicians, if we were successful it would wipe out the species. Aside from the damage to the ecology when you cause an extinction, there are still a few politicians I think are worth saving...
Nevertheless, When you have serving politicos more concerned with obstruction and perversion of the nation's business for political gain cartoonists like Brooke McEldowney really give me a warm feeling...

This is so damn good I have to repeat it here. Hate popups? Didja switch to Firefox because it blocks them? Notice it doesn't always work, anymore? Those nasty bastards who make popups found a way to get around firefox's blocking by using a flash plugin. Pete Blevin has the answer... (found it at Roger's)
about:configinto the Firefox location bar.
- Right-click on the page and select New and then Integer.
- Name it
- Set the value to 2.
The possible values are:
- 0: Allow all popups from plugins.
- 1: Allow popups, but limit them to
- 2: Block popups from plugins.
- 3: Block popups from plugins, even on whitelisted sites.
hmmm. I've found a site where the popups still appear. Oh well. Zonealarm Pro still blocks them all.
I’m just back from holidays, and I’ve been scanning the last month’s news. What the hell has been going on? The IRA swears off violence? Wow. There’s one for the ‘Holy shit!’ category.
On the other side of the ledger however, the old insanity continues. In
On Lars Larson’s nationally syndicated radio talk show today, one ACLU-symp actually tried suggesting random searches for terrorists would be ok so long as police can’t prosecute if they find evidence of OTHER criminal activity.
The NYPD is looking to protect the public from terrorist subway bombers, and the New York Civil Liberties people are looking to protect… who? Just who the hell is their constituency anyway? Lets think about this for a moment. Who have they protected in the past? Oh yes, child pornographers, drug dealers, and pro jihad terrorist sympathizers in the education system...
Based on their history, I think the ACLU could be declared a terrorist criminal organization.
Enough said, eh?
In other news… Oh, in
