Cliff, this one’s for you

John Cleese Soccer vs Football.

Satire or real? You decide.

I don’t care, this is bloody funny either way.

Why privatizing national security is a bad idea

Blackwater/Xe is getting off, again, of doing illegal shit. Obama says he won’t charge them with violating Sudan sanctions. Instead they are going to face a fine.


Now these are the same guys who stole 500 AK47 meant for the Afghanistan militia, by signing for them ‘Eric Cartman’.

Blackwater has done a ton of shit we know about, and most likely a ton of shit we don’t know. Iraq kicked all Blackwater/Xe employees out of the country because of the amount of shit they were doing, and the US never held them to task for it. Letting them get away with it seems to be the US’s MO right now. In fact not only letting them get away with it, but profiting from it as well, they just got hundreds of millions of dollars worth of new contracts.

Now this gets me to thinking why are they doing this? Well one of the things they have been doing is a lot of hush hush shit for the CIA, stuff the US probably does not want to get out into teh public. So will Blackwater/Xe EVER face criminal charges? Probably not. They could set off a nuke and get away with it because they are in a position to hold the US government over a barrel.

This is why privatizing your national security is a bad idea.

America, why it sucks

Just go read Fraud: America's New Watchword and see the shit happening here in the great country of the United States of America.

I can’t get out of here fast enough.

Canada has its own problems, but it ain’t the steaming pile of shit that is the US. Its gonna come crashing down at some point, and I don’t wanna be here when it does.

Oh yeah, the wifey had it out with her mother again today, who was complaining she didn’t have any money. Since we have $18 to last us two weeks, I don’t think she should be complaining. She also told my wife last week that we should be paying for everything and that she should not have to pay for anything at all. She’s blaming the wife and I for everything that has gone wrong. Fun stuff in our household right now. Yay.

Very cool building in NY

NY building

So there’s this building in New York that has been vacant for at least a decade, with much of its interior blocked off since the 40’s. Recently a film location scout was given access to it and took some pictures. The architecture is really cool.

I’m glad the current owners are going to bring this old building back to its prime and not just gut and modernize.

If money were no object and I could do what I wanted without worry I’d go around buying up old houses and buildings and restoring them.

Funny Gaga all male a cappella

On the Rocks is the University of Oregon's premiere all male a cappella ensemble.
Official Website: www.uoontherocks.com

Pretty talented, and this video is pretty funny. I do wonder what Gaga thinks of all the funny videos of her songs.
