Larry David: Ha Ha Ha - You Funny Guy!

11/09/09 - Update: I wonder if Larry David and the gutless clowns at HBO will have anything to say about the murders of our Soldiers last week at Fort Hood by an Islamic Extremist? Or as so many of the other Dhimi will they just consider this an extreme case of PTS?

Here's another great post from FrontPageMag by regular contributor and editor Jamie Glazov. I saw a report on FOX News the other night about this HBO episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and then the story more or less disappeared. Evidently HBO has no problems picking on easy targets such as Christians and Jews but they wouldn't dare to run shit like this if it were about Muslims.

For the last several years we have been subjected to stories of Muslims and their outrage over perceived insults to the Koran and Islam. For the most part the Lame Stream Media have bent over (They're gonna need more Vaseline) in a lame and cowardly attempt NOT to offend the Religion of Peace. All the while, Judaism, Christianity, and some of the other great Religions of the World have been fair game for Hollywood and the far-left. It's also known as Dhimitude my friends but by any other name it's Cowardice. The article by Glazov is below.

In a recent Curb Your Enthusiasm episode, Larry David accidentally urinates on a picture of Jesus while he is a guest in someone else’s home. This, in turn, leads to a misunderstanding in which the homeowners think they have a miraculously weeping Jesus.
Some Christians are
understandably upset.

Just some thoughts on what this episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm has revealed:
Are producers of this show, or Larry David, or anyone else connected to it fearing for their lives right now? Are there Christian groups calling for the death of anyone in connection to this episode?

In comparison, let us say, to the Muhammad cartoons riots and death threats, what does this say about Islam and Christianity? Which faith is a
Religion of Peace and which one is not?
Would the producers of this show have just as easily allowed a scene in which Larry David urinates on a Koran? He couldn’t urinate on a picture of Muhammad because we all know that making a representation of Muhammad gets you an immediate death sentence. So we have to settle for the Holy Book. But how much does anyone want to bet that this would never be allowed?

Question: Why in our culture is urinating on Jesus easily permitted but urinating on the Koran is simply unthinkable? What does this signify? And why is it that the people who right now are rolling their eyes and saying that Christians should get a life because this is freedom of expression, the same ones who would be up in arms if Larry David had done the same thing to the Koran? They are the ones who blamed the artists of the Muhammad cartoons for provoking and upsetting Muslims. They are the ones who argue that, when it comes to the sensibilities of Muslims, free speech has limits. If Curb Your Enthusiasm had an episode in which Larry David urinated on a Koran, they would be on the front lines saying that this is Islamophobia and that we must be sensitive to the feelings of Muslims, etc. It would be deemed as hate speech. There would be lawsuits and the show would be cancelled and David’s career would be over.

HBO has come
to the defense of the episode, saying that it is all about parody. Everyone needs to lighten up. So, if Larry David urinated on the Koran, would HBO tell everyone they need to lighten up because it is parody? What does it say that we know for a fact that the latter would simply never happen?
What meaning and lesson do we draw from this

A big fat Fuck You to Larry David for being a coward and picking on an easy target. The irony is apparently lost on Larry that by being Jewish, he would be among the first to lose his head in a Muslim dominated world. Not only is he a coward, but he is a stupid coward.

Palate Cleanser - Scientists Observe The Two Oldest Things In The Universe!

I am a huge Astronomy buff and often watch the programs on PBS, The Science Channel, Discovery, and National Geographic when they cover the subject. Had I been better at math, physics, chemistry, and a couple dozen other science subjects and been able to afford a hundred-thousand dollars on a Cal-Tech education I might very well have ended up an Astronomer instead of becoming the lowly auto tech I am. However, I did take an Astronomy course at the local Community College ten years ago and we had some very interesting discussions during lectures....

This morning Yahoo featured a story of a thirteen-billion old remnant of a gamma-ray burst. Since we now have more powerful visual and radio telescopes we are constantly seeing and hearing farther and farther back into the history of our Universe. I can remember asking my Astronomy Professor a question during a lecture that (at that time) I considered stupid and naive. I asked him if, as we build stronger telescopes and continue to study the stars, will we ever actually see the "Big Bang" since we are virtually peering into the past with our observations? His answer was essentially no. It has something to do with how long it actually takes the light to travel to Earth and how fast we are moving away from the "Big Bang" and center of the original explosion. Now I am starting to wonder if he was wrong?

The image of the thirteen-billion year old gamma-ray burst is on the upper left. The actual Burst is a faint red dot in the center of the image. For a look at the second oldest object ever observed in the known Universe - click here.

Content Warning: the image is quite intense and of an object that is very very old.

The link to the original Yahoo story is below.

Dog And Pony Show # 714

Well that Giant of American journalism and "diplomacy", Sean Penn, is at it again. He's off to Cuba for an eye-opening interview with (hopefully) Fidel Castro. Once again, one of Hollywood's premiere Useful Idiots will allow himself to be paraded around one of the last of the World's failing Communist regimes and look to perpetuate more propaganda success stories.

As they so often do, the far-left in Hollywood (and some members of Congress) continue to grovel and be duped by Fidel Castro. These people include Danny Glover, Oliver Stone, Marxine Waters, Brian DePalma, Michael Moore..... the list of these fools goes on and on. And why is Danny Glover, who was a champion against the Apartheid system in South Africa a fan of Castro? Castro's Cuba is an extremely racist State. I'm gonna go out on a limb and assume these are reasonably intelligent people (Marxine Waters excluded) who are blinding themselves in the name of ideology. Then again a wise man once said "stupid is as stupid does".

After a lifetime of reading and seeing stories of Cuban refugees floating on inner tubes, stowing away on ships, defecting during the Olympics and other sporting events, etc..., I just don't understand the Hollywood fascination with Fidel Castro. There are far more interesting stories of bravery and desperation to be told coming from the REAL people of Cuba rather than anything the Castro Brothers have to say. A great American movie has yet to be produced telling their tales. And yet we still have fools who travel to Cuba looking for success stories when the most interesting and true successes are the stories of the people who escaped from Castro's Cuba and risked their lives to come to America. When will Hollywood tell their story?

Thanks to Jammie Wearing Fool for the heads-up. And thanks to for providing links this morning to this and other interesting Hollywood/Liberal douchebaggery.

Congrats To The Yankees

Last night the Los Angeles Angels brought a knife to a gunfight with predictable results. Too many errors and too little offense didn't get the job done. The Angels had a great season and will be back better than ever next Year. I do hope they don't panic in Anaheim and start trying to fix what isn't broken - IOW don't fire the manager and coaches. The Angles need a little more pitching and another long-ball hitter in case Vladimir Guerrero decides to head for greener pastures.

So congratulations to the NY Yankees for winning the American League Pennant. They are/were the better team and they deserve to be in the World Series.

Where's K-Rod?

Last night the Angels survived another offensive blitz by the Yankees to take the series back to New York. John Lackey was sailing along until the seventh inning and then the wheels came off. NY scored six runs and just like that a 4-0 shutout becomes a 6-4 reversal of fortune. Where's K-Rod? Oh shit, I forgot. He's in NY too.

The Angels have had good, if not great relief pitching over the years, but last night it became apparent that what we have now isn't getting the job done. When the Yankees jumped on John Lackey in the seventh we had no stopper. Angel Manager Mike Scioscia pulled Lackey for a reliever and the Angels paid the price. Did Mike Scioscia whip out the hook too soon? Angel fans will be arguing over this one for a while. I was in agreement with Scioscia. Lackey had lost his stuff and control. He threw about six or seven balls in a row.

The problem is/was we don't have a stopper anymore. And this is probably why the series will end Saturday. The Yankees just keep coming back and the Angels can't do a damn thing about it. The Yankees almost pulled the game out in the ninth inning with another comeback. The Angels have a potent offense but it's not enough. We can't/don't match up hitter-for-hitter against the Yankees. The Yankees have three great clutch hitters in Posada, A-Rod, and Jeeter. I'm a die-hard fan and will watch with great interest game six but without a 2009 version of K-Rod, Troy Percival, Minnie Rojas ____________ fill in the blank line with your favorite Angel great reliever, we're up against it.

Congratulations Philly

Well I guess I'll have to wait another year for a Dodger/Angel World Series. Last night the Phillie's overwhelmed the boys in blue by a 10-4 score and are headed to the Series. Congrats to Philadelphia and I'll have to see what happens tonight with the Yankees and Angels. Things are looking mighty grim.

To Sue or Not to Sue? – by Thomas Sowell

To Sue or Not to Sue? – by Thomas Sowell

I read David Horowitz's site, FrontPageMag, every day. This morning Thomas Sowell posted a thought provoking article about Rush Limabugh and whether he should sue over the LIES that were written and spoken about him last week. Of course the NFL ownership deal is dead in the water and many are wondering if it's even worth the trouble for Rush.

Thomas weighs in on the subject of sourcing and lies in his article. Sowell also points out some interesting facts about slander. Public figures have a larger burden of proof when it comes to lawsuits involving slander and libel. The same laws that protect the "real" media also protect the tabloids if I read this story correctly. IOW it's almost impossible to sue and win in Rush's case.

How else would the Enquirer, Globe, Star, and some of the other rags be allowed to go to print. Many, if not most of the articles in the tabloids are often (not) sourced by "pals", "insiders", "a friend", among other vague descriptions. This kind of reporting and protection is why in all likelihood, Rush will never sue. And yet Axleroid, Emmanual, and Dunn consider these fools who trashed Rush to be the "real" media while arrogantly dismissing FOX.

Helplessly Hoping...

Update: The Dodgers blew it in the bottom of the ninth and lost the game. It's back to the drawing board for L.A.

Okay, I admit that these days I'm one of those Baseball fans who usually only watches games during the playoffs. To me Baseball is game to be watched in person. It's not the same as the NBA or NFL. But - I have been attending Dodger games since the late sixties. I started going to Angel games in the late seventies. As a young teen I often watched televised Dodger and Angel games with my Grandfather. He was a huge Dodger fan until the day he died. So this year I'm caught up in play-off fever as I was in years past.

October 19, 2009...
Today the Angels and Yankees went extra innings in Anaheim with the Angels finally prevailing in the eleventh. As I type, the Dodgers and Phillies are going at it in Philadelphia. Both are/were good exciting games today. The Dodgers have just taken a lead after a big sixth inning and the Phillies are rallying in the bottom of the same inning. I am hoping against hope both Los Angeles teams will prevail and I will get to see something I have been waiting for since the mid-sixties - a Freeway series. Will it happen? It doesn't look so good right now. The Angels are down 2-1 in their series against the Yankees. The Dodgers, should they win, will even their series against the Phillies 2-2. If they lose it will be 3-1 in favor of Philly.

I've seen a lot of Baseball over the course of my fifty-five years....
The first Dodger series I can remember is the sweep over the Yankees in 1963. I still remember the heartbreak of the Dodgers vs Baltimore in 1966. We had to wait another six or seven years before the Dodgers were even a competitive team again while they rebuilt. Then it was the Steve Garvey, Davy Lopes, Bill Russell and Ron Cey glory years. I can also remember seeing Willie Stargell hit a ball all the way out of Dodger Stadium in 1973 - the first time anyone ever did that. Yes - I really was at that game. The ball bounced once on top of the right field pavilion and then out into the parking lot. Awesome! I've seen the late Don Drysdale pitch in person. I was there for Fernando Valenzuela and the hoopla surrounding him as a rookie and the sting of shutouts he had in 1981. It was a great time to be a Dodger fan.

I've driven up to Chavez Ravine at eight in the morning and paid a scalper one-hundred dollars for four tickets in one of the worst sections of Dodger Stadium just to see Jerry Reuss pitch and win in the 1981 playoffs. And I was glad to get em too. We were so high up we had to use Scuba gear to breathe. It was worth the forty mile drive and the cost for the tickets. BTW, the Dodgers won the 1981 World Series too. And who can forget Kirk Gibson and the 1988 shot against Oakland and Dennis Eckersley. That was the last appearance in the Series for the Dodgers.

I've also seen Nolan Ryan pitch in person. That was a treat. I can remember the ultimate heartbreak of the Angels vs Boston in 1986 when they were one strike away from what would have been their first World Series when Donnie Moore made one of Baseball's most memorable pitches. Donnie's suicide a few years later was a horrible tragedy and one can't help but believe it was a lingering after-effect from the home run he served up to Dave Henderson ending the Angel season. I can remember Minnie Rojas and the auto accident that killed his two daughters and left him paralyzed. There was also Lyman Bostock and his tragic shooting death. The Angels have more than once been said to have suffered from some kind of jinx. I've often wondered if it was true. And I am NOT a superstitious man.

Now - if the Baseball Gods are willing to grant an old fart one last request, I'll be happier than a Clam at high tide. My memories of wonderful Baseball games past are etched into my brain forever. One last memory is all I ask.

Now it's time to slaughter a Lamb and say a small prayer.

Keith Olbermann Wins Double-Douchebag Award!

Just In from Disassociated Press! (c)
Olbermann wins Prestigious Douche Award!
Date: 12:30 AM, October 17, 2009
By Staff Writer Alan Smithee

It's time for the Fall Douchebag Awards! This year, the World Of Greasywrench has decided to give out a double award (sometimes refered to as the Stereo version) to Keith Olbermann. It's not often a candidate emerges that possesses the "Right Stuff" that qualifies him/her for the prize. Past winners have included Cindy Sheehan, Sean Penn, and Hugo Chavez. So.... without further ado we award the coveted prize to PMS-NBC's Keith Olbermann.

In the photo on the upper left Olbermann can be seen proudly displaying his lovely Douchebag trophies and straw-sipping his favorite beverage (Kool-Aid) from one of the bags. When he was reminded of the near icon status of the Douchebag Awards and that they weren't actually for drinking out of, he coyly shrugged it off and quipped "I was thirsty and couldn't find my Che Gueverra coffee mug".

Olbermann then said, before taking a hearty swig out of one of his Douchebags, "Mother Olbermann used to have one of these little red gizmo's and I could never figure out what it was for. She used to tell me it was an empty water balloon just to have some light fun at my expense. Now that I know how handy they are, I'll always have these keen little rubber jugs for my Shirley Temple Cocktails when I feel thuggish and go out clubbing".

According to Jim Dandy, publicist of PMS-NBC, Olbermann's selection "ranks right up there" with the Nobel Peace Prize award President Obama received last week. Dandy also said "We couldn't be prouder of Keith with this prestigious choice. He's done so much to earn this recognition. If anyone in the main stream media deserves to be associated with a Douchebag - it's Keith Olbermann".

Some Reactions to Olbermann's Douchebag Ceremony...
1. The lovely Michell Malkin had no comment.
2. Chris Matthews reportedly had fresh "tingles" running up and down his legs. Matthews denied they were fleas.
3. Ted Kennedy is still dead and couldn't be reached for comment.
4. House Speaker Nazi Pelousy was busy with Botox injections and unavailable.
5. Rush Limbaugh was last seen filing a legal brief.
6. Massengale feminine products was considering Olbermann as a new spokesperson.

The beat goes on and on and the clueless remain clueless.....

??? Nobel Peace Prize ???

Today the Nobel Peace Prize lost the last few shreds of credibility its selection committee may have once had by awarding Barack Hussein Obama this year's Prize. As many other bloggers, including Jammie Wearing Fool have pointed out, Obama had only been President eleven days when the deadline for selection expired. Just how in the world does the selection committee explain that? Have the standards and accomplishments for the Prize dropped so low?

The Nobel committee tried to defend their selection with this lame statement "Very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future," the committee said in a citation. Once again - with the leftists of the World it's always about "how they feel" as opposed to something actually tangible.

Surely there has to be another Man or Woman in the world more deserving than a President who's done more to polarize his own country than any other President since Richard Nixon. What was once a prestigious prize has been reduced to being a popularity contest for one's politics.

This selection makes a mockery of the Award. Then again there was the Al Gore, Yassar Arrafat, and Jimmy Carter selections, among others who've won the Prize. Adolph Hitler was also nominated in 1939 so this is nothing new. It's going to be interesting watching the Nobel committee explain their selection process in the coming days. Can you say "spin" on a world-wide basis.

Political Correctness has now engulfed the entire World. I'm surprised Osama Bin Laden didn't make the finals if this is the criteria these days. What a sick and fucked up joke on anyone who has actually contributed to World Peace. This compares to the Neville Chamberlain selection right before WWII. Can anyone see an eerie parallel?

In a related blog post Michelle Malkin speculates on what Obama could possibly do with the Prize money that goes along with his selection. In all fairness to Obama he stated he "didn't deserve the award". But - if President Obama really feels this way he should refuse the award. After all - it's not like he solicited his selection.

Marxine Waters - "They Did it Too"

Fresh garbage from the Sage Douche of South Central.... (apologies to Larry Elder)

“Many members” of Congress suffer from the same disclosure issues as Rep. Charles Rangel (D.N.Y.), one of his allies said Wednesday.

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) downplayed the seriousness of allegations against Rangel that he failed to disclose sources of income and pay taxes on some properties, saying that many lawmakers suffer from innocent lapses in judgment when filing mandatory financial disclosure forms.

“I want to tell you, there are many members who, if you go back over all of their records, over all of the years, you’re going to find that there were disclosures that were not made,” Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday morning.

Marxine puked up this huge gem of a justification when referring to Cholly Rangel's problems with math. She responded by using an excuse we all probably used as children more than once. When confronted with Rangel's financial shenanigans she simply confessed that other members of Congress have "done it too" at one time or another. Isn't this the way a five-year old child responds when caught with their hand in the cookie jar? And this idiot is in Congress?

Outside of Nazi Pelousy, Harry Reid, John Murtha, and a couple of hundred other members of Congress, Marxine has to be the number one nitwit in Politics. Pay attention to some of the creative English used in referring to Rangel's lack of accountability. Terms such as...

  • suffer from innocent lapses
  • disclosures that were not made
  • lapses in judgement
  • failed to disclose
  • disclosure issues
Isn't all the Pretzel Logic and semantical gymnastics above just a creative way of excusing dishonest behavior? And of course the most ethical Congress ever voted NOT to remove Rangel from the House Ways and Means Committee Chairmanship. I'm finding it harder and harder to capitalize the word Congress in my rants these days. They just don't deserve the respect. BTW, I hope Marxine doesn't decide to "probe" me for disagreeing with her support of a crook.

Thanks to Michelle Malkin for the link below.

Joe Friday Gives Polanski The Biz

If things were only this cut and dried in the real world. Imagine the following scenario being true and actually happening....

As I type...
Sgt. Joe Friday is now interrogating Roman Polanski in the interview rooms of LAPD's Hollywood Division. Is that a puddle I see running down Roman's leg? It looks like Mr Polanski is all wee wee'd up. Could Polanski be contemplating an intimate encounter in Folsom Prison with an inmate named Jim Bob? Roman is gonna need a whole lot of Qualudes to subdue someone larger than a thirteen year old girl.

Now the creative shakers and movers of Tinsel Town react...
Of course the good people of Hollywood were offended at the terrible treatment of Roman Polanski. A large mob was last seen storming the Hollywood Division headquarters in a valiant but vain effort to rescue Roman from the LAPD. The weapons confiscated from the angry mob included pink ribbons, coke spoons, whips, chains, dog collars, several empty bottles of Vicodin & Prozac, Syringes, and other assorted missiles.

Famous celebrities comment...
"Polanski must be saved"
thundered an enraged Woody Allen in an interview after the failed rescue attempt. After all, the hulking Mr. Allen added, "Roman's a great artist". Just ask Harvey Weinstein, Whoopie Goldberg and Debra Winger. But after all - it wasn't "rape-rape" according to Ms. Goldberg.

Final thought - I wonder how many of Polanski's Hollywood defenders have thirteen-year old daughters?
