right-wing blogs we like

Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

Well, so much for the so-called "free market." I always thought that as things became easier to get, those huge salaries enjoyed by the creative artists who made them would come down. Isn't that what mass production is all about?

But, I guess not. It is government's role to make sure certain segments of society get to continue overcharging for their "creative talents."

Truly, what makes a rock group any more entitled to huge rewards than a secretary whose creative talents organize offices and send out responses to inquiries?

Hmm . . . when technology makes the market bigger and availability easier, who has the right to keep it controlled and unavailable?

As far as intellectual property goes, it is an ambiguous and possibly overprotected area. IMHO.

and for chucks:

"Rebuilt Iraq Projects Found Crumbling"

So much for all the US Army Corp of Engrs and others who are boasting of their engineering accomplishments in Iraq. Perhaps, chucks, you should read beyond the propaganda of the government. Hmm?

Two other interesting stories today:

Fire Dog Lake is reporting that a Monica Goodling email was found in the DOJ Friday document dump that REQUESTS DELETION of previous documents after the DOJ investigation was started.

Well now, thats a big no no.

And this:

The White House is today admitting that all of the Republicans' talk over the past few weeks about progress in Iraq and the success of "the surge", all that stuff about ""Remember the rug" and "five rugs for five bucks" and "unarmored humvee" and "day by day, block by block" and hearts and minds and al-Maliki understands, and, you know, all of that, all that stuff about the impending success of the escalation, was, not to put too fine a point on it, bullshit.

This, two days after the Democrats in Congress finalized the defense supplemental spending bill with deadlines intact.

OUR STORY THUS FAR: talkradio host Dillard L. Montrose, star of Seattle's KROW 'S Little Man D Show, tells Star and the girls in a living room announcement in his huge Eastside home, that there will be no more Blue Bunny ice cream treats on their monthly Argosy cruises, due to the 40 dollar additional tax burden placed on him by the state legislature to pay for 6 weeks of family leave for workers who made "poor choices" in life. While waiting with Star and the girls to board the cruise ship on Alaskan Way, Dillard fends off a homeless beggar by telling him the "poor choices" spiel and warning him off. The beggar tells him of his past, which includes being a member of a famed east coast juggling trio, and then a victim of Lobsterman's Disease, which turns men in their early thirties' hands into lobster claw-like deformities. As the beggar boy is telling him the story a freelance reporter/photographer named Deeter Skorpios, proprietor of the Blabbertown radio blog,is making his way up Alaskan Way toward the Argosy Cruise pier. He hates Montrose for his meanness and selfrighteous judgementalism.............

THE DISHEVELLED, BEARDED HOMELESS MAN, struggled energetically to pull off his large leather gloves, as he shouted at Montrose in his Bronx accent. "Heah's ya poor choices , pal! Heah's ya poor choices!" Finally both gloves were off, revealing a pair of red, clawlike deformities. They were hideous, fearful things, the original fingers of the hands now grotesquely fused together, with a two inch space separating them from the bloated, gnarly thumbs. The thumbs were paralyzed in place however, thus destroying the "opposable thumb" distinction achieved only after millions of years of evolution. The homeless man waved his "claws' in front of him and above his head at Dillard as the latter man shrunk away from them in horror. "'All my juggling money went into medical bills- operations, drugs , hospital stays," the whole shiteree , bud! Poor choices, my ass, you smug bastard!".........

Tommy008

DEETER SKORPIOS HEARD THE shouting as he cleared the front of the large pier building and strolled into the plaza that contained the Argosy Cruise docks. "...the whole shiteree, pal! Poor choices my ass, you smug bastard!" A .man with lobster claw hands was waving them in front of Dillard Montrose, while Montrose's two girls and dog stood behind him . He watched in dumbfounded silence as the man continued to shout and wave. He didn't seem to be threatening Montrose in any way however- just making a point. Skorpios watched as Montrose then stumbled back in fear, and pulled a large handgun from underneath his oversized sports jacket. The talkjock pointed it at the clawhanded man and yelled,"Get the hell out of here, you freak!" Skorpios grabbed the Nikon that he always carried in his shoulder bag, focused it, and snapped off a half dozen shots of Montrose brandishing the weapon at "lobster boy".....
