Bust A Move Or Bust A Nose - You Decide

Update links: Here are some more Tom Slick AKA Tom Bruso links and some more (thanks Toast) info. Evidently Tom Bruso is well known to the authorities in Oakland. He's had run-ins with the Police there before. He IS a Vietnam Vet and has some mental health issues. If he needs mental health treatment and being he's a Vet he should get if for free. I wonder if the V.A. is involved with his case?


Here's the latest video to go viral on the Web in the last two days. We have an older man (sixty-seven) vs a younger fellow who fucked with someone he shouldn't have. The old guy is named Tom Bruso and he served two years in Vietnam. Don't know much about the younger one other than he should have just let the old Leatherneck walk away when he had the chance. Instead, the young guy got back in Bruso's face and let his mouth write a check his ass couldn't cash.

This story is still unfolding and I will post more as it is available. Being that I'm fifty-six, I can't/won't attempt to hide my sympathies here. There is so much disrespect for the Senior Citizens in the U.S.A. and this Vet (USMC) Tom Bruso made my heart soar. And it proves to me that the thug in the video made the major mistake of bringing a mouth to a fistfight.

Special thanks to Adrienne's Corner for posting this video yesterday and bringing it to our/my attention.

She's Baaaack..

"Duke lacrosse accuser charged with attempted murder, arson
Posted: Feb. 18, 2010
Durham, N.C. — Durham police late Wednesday arrested the woman who four years ago falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of raping her.
Crystal Mangum assaulted her boyfriend, set his clothes on fire in a bathtub and threatened to stab him, investigators said."

The she in this case is Crystal Gail Mangum. To refresh your memory think North Carolina, Duke University, Lacrosse, and Rape. Are you with me now? She has been arrested in Duke once again. I can't think of much else to say other than what I posted two years ago.

Recap: Ms. Mangum, Eighty-Eight Professors at Duke University, and District Attorney Mike Nifong came very close to destroying the lives of four innocent men with a trumped up Rape charge nearly four years ago. All during this sleazy incident, Nifong had exculpatory evidence that would have exonerated these young men. Opponents of Nifong speculated he hid the evidence to further his run for re-election for District Attorney. In June of 2007 Nifong was disbarred because of his actions.

It's pretty obvious this woman has some serious drug, alcohol, and mental issues and may very well end up on a future episode of C.O.P.S. Here's hoping she doesn't do fatal damage to her innocent children or someone else along the way. It's interesting that Vincent Clark, her book publisher, spun the story into a "she's been the victim" type of response. Get some help Crystal.

Read the full story here.

Disease My Ass! Tiger Woods Is A Horn Dog!

Tiger Woods has taken time out from his "Sex Rehab" and emerged a better man to express his apologies. Excuse me Tiger - but you owe no statements or apologies to anyone other than your Wife, Children, and your immediate family. Your sex life and lack of being faithful is no more my business than the breakfast you had this morning. But you do look ridiculous groveling before the cameras!

Hyper-sexuality AKA "Sex Addiction" by its current trendy name is hard-wired into most men and some women. How in the fuck (pun intended) can Psychologists define it if they can't even agree what IS a normal sex drive in Humans. Sex drives vary tremendously. It's totally subjective. If it's a disease, it's because the powers that be in the medical community want it labeled so in order to have insurance companies foot the bill for the treatment. A generation or so ago we'd be calling Tiger a philanderer or a horn dog. He no more has a disease than a Pig flies. And no more groveling for your fans!

Tiger - you should have never gotten married. That's where you fucked up. If you're gonna grovel and scrape before anyone it should be the woman you married. You did her wrong - not me or anyone on the PGA tour or the public. If you can't stay faithful then the best thing to do is divorce her and relapse. If this sounds cynical too bad. You owe it to yourself to be honest about your condition. Do the right thing and divorce her. Then give her the settlement she has coming and get on with your nocturnal adventures. And quit groveling!

But - I would suggest you head to the sperm bank and make a large deposit in case you want more children in the future. Then run, and I mean run to a clinic and get yourself a vasectomy. It won't protect you from STD's but it just might protect you from the obvious multitude of Gold Diggers who will surely emerge from the woodworks in the future. If you can't keep the old putter in your pants, at least protect yourself from Paternity lawsuits. And stop groveling for the cameras.

BTW, you were never a role model for me. It's been a pleasure to watch your work on the golf courses of the World but athletes just don't qualify as role models. Many, if not most, have feet of clay. Mickey Mantle comes to mind. I remember watching him play when I was a kid and he was great to watch. But look how things worked out for the Mick. Charles Barkley said it best - "I'm not a role model... Just because I dunk a basketball doesn't mean I should raise your kids." And please - no more groveling. (Did I mention that already?)

And one last thing Tiger - watch out for Gloria Allred. She's made a wonderful living extorting, shaking down, squeezing, suing guys like you. Ooops - I think I'm too late on the Gloria Allred thing. BTW, Ms. Allred got totally punked by the lovely Janeane Piro on Bill O'Reilly tonight.

Dumb And Dumber - Or Just Plain Dumbshits?

From the corrections department of the New York Times and the Torrance Daily Breeze come these two examples of government waste and plagiarism. Thanks hotair.com for the NY Times link/post.

Story number one: from the correction page of the NY Times...
"In a number of business articles in The Times over the past year, and in posts on the DealBook blog on NYTimes.com, a Times reporter appears to have improperly appropriated wording and passages published by other news organizations.

The reporter, Zachery Kouwe, reused language from The Wall Street Journal, Reuters and other sources without attribution or acknowledgment."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but why is the word "plagiarize" NOT mentioned anywhere in the NY Times corrections page I'm referring to in the article above? I see words and expressions such as "improperly appropriated wording" and "reused language" but nowhere is the correct term plagiarism mentioned. One would think that the suits in charge at the Old Grey Bitch would have learned their lesson after Maureen Dowd borrowed a few articles last year and of course, the Jayson Blair fiasco.

The NY Times should be the first, and I mean the first in the literary world to recognize the necessity to be up front and honest about plagiarism considering their past track record. It seems not. Instead they cover their far-left asses and use code words to obfuscate lazy and dishonest reporting. Why am I not surprised? It seems Politicians and Newspapers have to be caught red-handed in order to fess up their transgressions.

Story number two: from the City of Los Angeles via the Daily Breeze Newspaper...
By Troy Anderson Staff Writer
Posted: 02/14/2010 09:38:02 PM PST
"Los Angeles County may be drowning in red ink, but at least it won't be coming from $40 fountain pens anymore. And county bureaucrats will no longer be able to sweep costly mistakes under $131 floor mats.

Shocked to learn public employees have been able to choose between fancy fountain pens and 24-cent ballpoints, county officials are eliminating thousands of high-ticket items from the official office supplies catalog."

Of course I'm not surprised about this waste. What really scares me is the waste from the nitwits downtown that we don't know about. The City of Los Angeles (along with the State) is bleeding red ink and on the verge of bankruptcy and these assholes are pulling shit like this. Any day now I expect to hear Mayor Villaragoso make a "let them eat cake" statement.

I seriously don't think I've spent $40.00 for the Bic pens I used during my entire school career. Of course they were .19 cents during the late sixties and early seventies. And that includes two years of Community College for a worthless A.S. degree. And $131.00 for floor mats? Incredible! I've also read that L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley Thomas spent over $700,000 for an office renovation. But... we keep returning the same wasteful shit-stains back to office year after year so it is true - we get what we deserve (and elect). I'll be voting a straight anti-incumbent ticket in all future elections until these wankers can show some fiscal responsibility.

Thomas Sowell Hits A Home Run Again!

From Thomas Sowell of Front Page Magazine comes a little common sense and truth - something we're sadly lacking these days.

"If there is ever a contest to pick which word has done the most damage to people’s thinking, and to actions to carry out that thinking, my nomination would be the word “fair.” It is a word thrown around by far more people than have ever bothered to even try to define it.
This mushy vagueness may be a big handicap in logic but it is a big advantage in politics. All sorts of people, with very different notions about what is or is not fair, can be mobilized behind this nice-sounding word, in utter disregard of the fact that they mean very different things when they use that word.

Some years ago, for example, there was a big outcry that various mental tests used for college admissions or for employment were biased and “unfair” to many individuals or groups. Fortunately there was one voice of sanity— David Riesman, I believe— who said: “The tests are not unfair. LIFE is unfair and the tests measure the results.”
If by “fair” you mean everyone having the same odds for achieving success, then life has never been anywhere close to being fair, anywhere or at any time. If you stop and think about it (however old-fashioned that may seem), it is hard even to conceive of how life could possibly be fair in that sense.

Even within the same family, among children born to the same parents and raised under the same roof, the first-borns on average have higher IQs than their brothers and sisters, and usually achieve more in life. Unfairness is often blamed on somebody, even if only on “society.” But whose fault is it if you were not the first born? Since some groups have more children than others, a higher percentage of the next generation will be first-borns in groups that have smaller families, so such groups have an advantage over other groups.

Despite all the sound and fury generated in controversies over whether different groups have different genetic potential, even if they all have identical genetic potential the outcomes can still differ if they have different birth rates. Twins have average IQs several points lower than children born singly. Whether that is due to having to share resources in the womb or having to share parents’ attention after birth, the fact is what it is— and it certainly is not fair.

Many people fail to see the fundamental difference between saying that a particular thing— whether a mental test or an institution— is conveying a difference that already exists or is creating a difference that would not exist otherwise. Creating a difference that would not exist otherwise is discrimination, and something can be done about that. But, in recent times, virtually any disparity in outcomes is almost automatically blamed on discrimination, despite the incredible range of other reasons for disparities between individuals and groups.

Nature’s discrimination completely dwarfs man’s discrimination. Geography alone makes equal chances virtually impossible. The geographic advantages of Western Europe over Eastern Europe— in climate and navigable waterways, among other things— have led to centuries of differences in income levels that were greater than income differences between blacks and whites in America today.

Just the fact that the lay of the land is different in different parts of Europe meant that it was easier for the Roman legions to invade Western Europe. This meant that Western Europeans had the advantages of the most advanced civilization in Europe at that time. Moreover, because Roman letters were used in Western Europe, the languages of that region had written versions centuries before the Slavic languages of Eastern Europe did. The difference between literacy and illiteracy is a huge difference, and it remained huge for centuries. Was it the Slavs’ fault that the Romans did not want to climb over so many mountains to get to them?

To those living in Western Europe in the days of the Roman Empire, the idea of being conquered, and many slaughtered, by the Romans probably had no great appeal. But their descendants would benefit from their bad luck. And that doesn’t seem fair either."

As I have said many times: the only thing that should be even is the starting line. After that you're on your own. Competition is what made America great - not a "level playing field". We've forgotten that.

Eco-Terrorist Paul Watson - Part Deux

In an earlier post I flamed Paul Watson and the Sea Shepard group for doing more harm than doing good when it comes to stopping fake research of the Minke Whales via the hunts by the Japanese. I don't condone the killing of Whales for any reason - but Paul Watson and his merry boatload of tree huggers are a death waiting to happen.

Well it seems the Matronly looking Watson and his high seas hippie buddies are at it again (or did they really ever stop) with the Japanese Whalers. They have been throwing jars of rancid butter (again) at the Whalers in an attempt to spoil the "research" and Whale meat. They've also tried to foul the props of the Japanese boats by laying down cable in front of the boat's paths. Couple that with the very dangerous maneuver last month by the Andy Gill of cutting in front of the Bows of the Whaling ships and you have a recipe for disaster.

It's interesting that the throwing of things like pies, tomatoes, stink bombs, and tantrums seem to be a favorite tactic of far-left groups. Much like infants when they don't get their way, the people of the Sea Shepard employ the childish tactics of ten-year old children.

From what I have researched on Watson he's been repudiated by many in the Animal Rights community for his actions. I've also found an interesting link that provides some evidence that Watson, by his actions, has actually done more to harm some of the animals (fur seals) that he claims to be helping. Also he's doing more harm to the various Animal Rights groups that he is actually claiming to help. From Yahoo comes the latest incident in the Antarctic Ocean.

From Yahoo via the A.P. comes the story below..
By OWEN PYE, Associated Press Writer Owen Pye, Associated Press Writer – Fri Feb 12, 5:40 am ET
SYDNEY – "Three crew members of a Japanese whaling vessel suffered face and eye injuries from acid fired by anti-whaling protesters during their latest clash in the Antarctic Ocean, their Japanese employers said Friday.

The Sea Shepherd protesters said they shot butyric acid, produced from stinking rancid butter, which they often aim at the whalers to try to disrupt the annual Japanese hunt. The activists maintain that butyric acid is nontoxic.

The injuries Thursday were the first to Japanese whalers this year during confrontations with Sea Shepherd, although there have been two ship collisions that each side blamed on the other."

Watson, IMHO, is a very scary thing - a Leftist with a cause and enough misguided people who keep him supplied with money and publicity. Couple that with his tactics which include lying and fabricating statistics in order to justify his recklessness and lack of concern for Human life. As I said in my earlier post - he is almost certainly going to get someone killed. It's only a matter of time.

In a related story two members of Greenpeace are facing trial in Tokyo for their efforts to expose corruption in the Japanese Whaling industry.

More on Paul Watson and the Sea Shepard story below...

Here's a video of the (now resting on the bottom) Sea Shepard boat Andy Gill cutting across the bow of a Japanese Whaling ship. You judge for yourself who is at fault. What a waste of a fine (Andy Gill) vessel by these assholes.

RIP Captain Phil Harris

I just read this on Yahoo and wish to express condolences to all who fished with and knew Captain Phil Harris. RIP.

I've been a big fan of the Deadliest Catch since the show first aired several years ago. Anyone who watches this series will probably have their favorite boat/Captain. Mine are Phil Harris and Sig Hansen. Captain Phil passed away Tuesday night after suffering a stroke on January 29th. He was a tough, old school type of guy and will certainly be missed by all.

New Global Warming Evidence.... Not!

More proof from unimpeachable sources that the World is NOT getting warmer. But don't tell the IPCC since they already believe the science is settled. What a mockery the IPCC has made out of the word Science. Thank goodness they've been exposed as the liars and frauds they are.

It's so cold that....
we had to chisel the dog off a lamp-post
the local flasher was caught *describing* himself to women

you light a candle and the flame freezes
your shadow freezes to the sidewalk
you have to break the smoke off your chimney
police tell a robber to freeze, and he does
Bill Clinton is sleeping with his own wife in order to keep warm

The cold weather jokes above were stolen from here...

Paul Watson - Wanted For Murder! (any day now)

By ROHAN SULLIVAN, Associated Press Writer Rohan Sullivan, Associated Press Writer – Sat Feb 6, 9:35 am ET

"SYDNEY – The anti-whaling ship the Bob Barker and a Japanese harpoon boat collided Saturday in the icy waters off Antarctica — the second major clash this year in the increasingly aggressive confrontations between conservationists and the whaling fleet.
No one was injured in the latest smash-up, for which each side blamed the other."

No, the crime of murder hasn't occurred yet... but give it time. The man pictured on the upper-left (Paul Watson) and his irresponsible behavior is almost certain to cause the death of someone on the high seas sooner or later. It's only a matter of time. I'm talking about the actions of a lunatic whose taunting and confrontational actions with Japanese whalers will almost certainly cause the death of a Whaler, one of his crew, or perhaps even himself. His tactics are, to say the least, extremely dangerous.

I will say this: I am totally AGAINST the hunting of Whales for food. I don't support the killing of Whales of any species including for the fake studies claimed by the Japanese unless it involves research increasing their numbers or preventing them being endangered. Maybe my position is surprising considering I'm a self-described Conservative/Libertarian but I do enjoy (I own three cats) and love and appreciate animals. But... this man Watson is on a collision course to get someone killed and he doesn't seem to give a shit whether it's friend or foe.

I've watched a couple of episodes of Whale Wars and the arrogance of Paul Watson is appalling. His self-righteous attitude reminds me of some of today's politicians. Don't question anything and just do what's good for you and what you're told. I'm sure he believes that the end justifies the means. I wonder if he'll feel the same after his actions cause the death of someone?

Many of the people in the Sea Shepherd/Animal Rights groups want humans to become vegetarians. I've also read stories of the Vegan movement wanting to make pure carnivores such as dogs and cats into vegetarians. That's totally fucking ridiculous. It's also a deluded view of biology and animal behavior. Try feeding a dog or cat salads for a month and see how long they live. As with many on the far-left, their goals are NOT based on reality.

Final Thoughts: We can be good stewards of the world's animals and food supply and still be environmentally aware. As I stated above, I enjoy animals. I also enjoy a nice steak or fish and chips. An occasional serving of bacon is great. My point being that when it comes to the food chain Humans are at the top - something that environmentalists seem to have forgotten. Now it's off to my kitchen for some leftover Chile Verde made with Pork Shoulder. Eat that Paul!

From The Pages Of Jammie Wearing Fool ...

come these horrific stories of Muslim Honor Killings!

It's a cold rainy day here in the South Bay of Los Angeles. I eagerly await Sunday and the Superbowl but have been spending this morning reading various blogs about things more important than a football game. I've visited the sites of Frontpagemag, Hotair, Jammiewearingfool, Red Alerts (yes - I am a born again Conservative) among other blogs and wonder why the World, with the exception of the Conservative sites mentioned above, has abandoned these Women to the murderous hands of Islamic fundamentalists. Is this an issue of Humanity or Religion? I think all decent people know the answer to that question.

Honor my Ass! From JammieWearingFool's weblog come the stories of Muslim Honor killings that make me want to scream out "how can these men be allowed to exist and do these horrible things to women"? Where are the voices of NOW, Code Pink, and other feminist groups? I read the stories of these "honor killings" and then they (along with the lives of these women and children) disappear from the web. What a mockery of such a meaningful word as "honor". How can a religion so pervert the minds of Men that they violate one of the fundamental precepts of humanity and kill their children and wives - all in the name of Allah? Who will speak up for these victims of fundamentalist Islamic murderers?

I realize I've done nothing more here but raise a series of questions but what else can one do? While the world continues to fall all over themselves insisting Islam is a religion of peace these kind of killings continue on a regular basis. Some have even occurred here in the U.S., but have been to a large part been ignored by the Lame Stream Media. How long will Humanity continue to justify and rationalize the murders of the most vulnerable ones of all - women and children? When are we going to reach a tipping point? I get sick and pissed-off every time I read these stories. Don't let these women and children be ignored or forgotten.

The Hags Bags Frauds of NOW Are Exposed (again)

The far-left in general and the feminists of NOW in particular have gotten themselves worked up to a frenzy over the Tim Tebow spot that will appear in this Sunday's Superbowl Ad lineup. If the fake feminists and so-called pro-choice advocates ever had any credibility in the past, they've shredded the last few layers over this Sunday's Ad. Tim Tebow's Mother did exactly what NOW supposedly advocates and made a choice twenty-three years ago. She chose life at the risk of her own. And the hypocrites of NOW, along with other far-left advocates of abortion are upset about it. It's a case of the tail chases dog or something.

I suggest the people who support abortion be intellectually honest and change their moniker to Pro-Death. At least they would have some credibility. Consider how one side calls itself Pro-Life and the opposite group refers to itself as Pro-Choice (as opposed to Pro-Death) which would be more accurate.

Have the Hags of NOW had a sneak preview of the commercial? If so, then they need to re-brand themselves the movement of Pro-Abortion instead of Pro-Choice. Tim Tebow's Mother chose life and it has them going crazy. WTF! She made a choice you assholes! Now have some integrity and support her or else STFU! It's your logic - not mine.

And if they haven't seen the ad then it's just a simple case of not believing in the First Amendment since they don't want the ad shown at all. Don't bother with presenting a logical argument - just stop the debate completely! Don't allow any dissenting viewpoints. How about burning a few books while you're at it?

Once again - this is their logic, not mine. Either way one looks at the situation, the feminists and far-left once again end up looking like assholes and hypocrites with their Pretzel Logic working at full speed.

Final thoughts: it doesn't matter if you're Pro-life or Pro-Choice - the progressives and feminists are making complete fools out of themselves on this issue. It's a Sarah Palin redux all over again. Here's a Woman who played by their (feminists) rules and they repudiate her.

Choice my ass! It's all about politics and you phonies know it! At least have the balls (or ovaries) to admit it and maybe, just maybe, you can regain a little credibility. I won't hold my breath until it happens.
