I always like to watch Red Skelton's show. He was a hoot. But I don't recall seeing this little skit.

Anyway, we need more politicians to think this way:
Red Skelton's "Pledge of Allegiance" was first introduced on the Red Skelton Show on January 14, 1969. It has since been twice read into the congressional record of The United States and has received numerous awards.

BWAH! [snort]

For some ungawdly reason, Deb gave me a schmoozer award.
If "schmooze" means to bitch about every little thing that comes your way, or maybe to talk about useless shit and make inane comments, then hey! I guess I am definitely a schmoozer!

Another definition is "chatting idly". Well now, chatting idly is what I do best around here, so maybe she has me pegged.

Well anyway, the idea of this thing is to spread the award like so much syphilis,and choose 5 other blogs which I consider to have the power of the schmooze.

So let's see now. The first that comes to mind would be Jean. She likes to put you in a different dimension every now and then, and then before you know it, like the crisp snap of a wishbone, you're right back to reality.

Next on the list is Greg. Although he'll probably tell me to go fistfuck myself, I enjoy the hell out of his very entertaining writing, and I have a hunch that there ain't many more people who would more of a hoot to prop up an elbow and shoot some shit with.

Third on the list is The Princess. Woman cracks me the hell up sometimes. Another one who I think would be a hoot to bend an elbow with.

Another one who will probably tell me to take this award and poke it up the cornhole sideways, but yet never ceases to give me a good chuckle, Squid. If you can get past that gawd-awful wallpaper, you will be entertained with the posts. Sorry Squid, that shit gives me a headache.

And last but definitely not least, Pooke. Her and her hubby both post on their blog, but she seems to do more than he. Sometimes there is a dry spell over there, but when they get back into the groove, it is worth a read.
And how can I not tag someone else who also has me pegged so well?:
"...[Curmudgeon] I believe may have been me had I been graced with a dick, a shotgun, and Jack Daniels in my Snoopy Thermos."
BWAH!!! That still cracks me the hell up!

Okay folks, there you go. Sorry if you're agin' passing these along. No biggy. Do what you will.

Girl seeking counseling gets sex line

AP - Wed Jul 25, 7:47 PM ET

LAKE CITY, Fla. - The state attorney general's office removed the toll-free number for a sexual assault counseling center from its Web site after an 8-year-old girl was connected instead to a sex chat line.

HMO faces $3M fine for lax oversight

AP - 41 minutes ago Avg. Rating: 4.6

OAKLAND, Calif. - Health care provider Kaiser Permanente faces a $3 million fine for what state regulators say were haphazard investigations into patient complaints and physician performance. It was the second rebuke in a year for the nation's largest HMO.
Gee. That's a surprise. As crooked as HMO's are.

I know, you gotta have insurance. That's a given. And most people don't have money to go out and buy any sort of private insurance, so they use an HMO. Which usually sucks. Might as well have socialized medicine in place. Surely the government knows how to run a medical business better than an HMO. [snicker]

BWAH!!!! I crack myself up!

Updated: I stumbled upon this little funny here:

Three nurses went to heaven, and were awaiting their turn with St. Peter to plead their case to enter the pearly gates.

The first nurse said, "I worked in an emergency room. We tried our best to help patients, even though occasionally we did lose one. I think I deserve to go to heaven." St. Peter looks at her file and admits her to heaven.

The second nurse says, "I worked in an operating room. It's a very high stress environment and we do our best. Sometimes the patients are too sick and we lose them, but overall we try very hard." St. Peter looks at her file and admits her to heaven.

The third nurse says, "I was a case manager for an HMO."

St. Peter looks at her file. He pulls out a calculator and starts punching away at it furiously, constantly going back to the nurse's file. After a few minutes St. Peter looks up, smiles, and says, "Congratulations! You've been admitted to heaven ... for five days!"

A 27-year-old lady presented with persistent cough, sputum and fever for the preceding six months. Inspite of trials with antibiotics and anti-tuberculosis treatment for the preceeding four months, her symptoms did not improve.

See, I took monday off to stay and work an extra day on my little slice o' heaven, and it's either burn a vacation day or make up the time. I treasure my vacation days.

But no biggie. It's too fucking hot outside to get anything accomplished out there, so I would probably just be indoors watching the British Open or watching a movie anyway.

TSA to lift ban on flying with cigarette lighters

Authorities found that banning most devices did little to make flying safer

Updated: 2 hours, 59 minutes ago

NEW YORK - Airline passengers will be able to bring many types of cigarette lighters on board again starting next month after authorities found that a ban on the devices did little to make flying safer, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said Friday.

The agency also announced that it was changing its policy on breast milk, and will allow mothers with or without children to carry more than three ounces onto planes.
Uh, no shit. Have you ever tried to light breat milk with a lighter? It's a pain in the ass.
Starting Aug. 4, air travelers will be allowed to carry disposable butane lighters, such as Bics, and refillable lighters, including Zippos, the TSA said. A prohibition will continue on torch-style lighters, which have hotter flames.
The agency said it costs close to $4 million to dispose of the more than 22,000 lighters it seizes every day.
Aha! There's the real crux of the situation. It isn't really because they're afraid someone is going to light the plane on fire, it costs them too much money to dispose of the lighters!

Again I say, if a well trained psycho really wanted to cause trouble on a plane, it wouldn't take any sort of weapon. There are any number of holds, blows, kicks and so on that can be used in place of say, a nail file or eyeglass repair screwdriver, to kill someone.

Sure, there are definitely some pussies out there, but any significant marriage, or even a serious relationship, is a 'partnership'. But you bow down to your spouse, that's your shortcoming. Pussy.

Bird on fire blamed for 2 acre wildfire

ASPEN, Colo. - A bird that caught fire after being electrocuted at a substation is suspected of igniting a 2 acre wildfire Monday, officials said. Fire personnel weren't able to identify whether the bird was raven or a crow that flew into exposed elements hanging from a high crossbeam on poles.
Oh, the visualizations...

An old acquaintance of mine once told me a story of how when he was younger, they would catch pigeons and tie a gas soaked rag around their feet and light it on fire. The birds, of course, would be scared shitless and would take off flying with the fire "chasing" them, only to keep trying to outfly it, which of course would fan the flames.

Pot - Meet Kettle


So I saw a cartoon yesterday that just cracked me the fuck up:

Yes, the fat bastard is at it again with one of his bogus 'documentaries', this time as I understand, on the 'ills' (BWAH! pun!) of the American health care system.
Yes, he is the poster child for healthy living fer sher.

Well, you really wanna fix the health care system? Get rid of lawyers.

I know, I've said it before. And I don't mean all lawyers. Not all lawyers are greedy bastards like ambulance chasers are. Sometimes the services of a good lawyer are required. Sometimes just like a good mechanic, you need someone who knows their shit. But ambulance chasers? That's a whole 'nuther critter. Like flies on shit they are. All over the place. It seems like most of the commercials on teevee are cars, pills and lawyers.
Everyone is sue happy these days. The system has been abused too long, and it's jumping up and biting everyone on the ass.

Find a worm in your candy bar? Sue the manufacturer. That's okay. If you can afford candy bars in the first place, you can afford to pay more for them.

Drive yourself home drunk and kill someone? Sue the bartender for pouring booze down your throat, and the auto manufacturer for not making foam rubber bumpers so when you ram someone they get crumpled instead of you just bouncing off their car.

Have a quack doctor operate on you and remove your left nut instead of the cataract from your right eye? Well, that doctor needs to be shot, but having a windfall come your way at the insurance company's expense ain't going to bring your left nut back. Getting his license the fuck taken away may help the next person though.

Hmmm. Here's a thought: Let's take a close look at the peer review process. Doctors have to answer to their peers - other doctors. It is a buddy system.

Yes, they have malpractice insurance to cover the law suits, but stop and think about it:
Q- How often do you hear of a doctor losing their license?
A- Not very.

They have to seriously fuck up on a regular basis before they'll be held accountable. And it almost has to be proven that it was intentional before it's considered serious.

Now I know no one is perfect, and I know medicine is not an exact science. But besides the cost of malpractice insurance, the hoops medical people have to jump through because of the threat of law suits is the biggest reason costs are outrageous. All to cover their asses. Waivers to sign, support personnel to assist, precautionary tests to be taken, all that shit adds up - and fast.

Just think about it the next time you hear yourself thinking something like "I'm gonna sue that bastard for everything he's got!" A litigious society is what we've become, and look where it got us.
As an example, let's compare the medical industry to the average, every day shit.
It ended up costing us more for products, and services, while adding all sorts of pads, nets, stickers, hoods, cowlings, guards, safety bars, warning lights and cumbersome attachments just so we are unable to accidentally hurt ourselves. Sure, we may not be able to so easily stick our foot in the lawnmower, but that lawnmower costs twice as much as it should, simply because now Toro has to crash test one out of every 100 or so lawnmowers to make sure the side impact grass collector can take a punch without little Jimmy getting his finger cut off.
So there's the R&D expense, the added safety equipment cost, the lawsuit insurance cost, and who knows what else they're adding on over in China to meet our so-called 'safety' standards, when really, all that is required is to not be stupid when you're mowing the lawn.

Good gawd. I really got off on a tangent there. I guess to sum it all up, let me say this. Again. Until people start to take some responsibility for your their own fucking actions, own their mistakes, it ain't going to get any better. Sometimes it just ain't no one's fault but your own, and blaming everyone else may save face for yourself, but someone is going to pay. And it will probably be your damn self in other ways.

One-third of Americans abuse alcohol: survey

2 hours, 47 minutes ago

CHICAGO (Reuters) - Nearly one in three Americans abuse or become dependent on alcohol over the course of their lives, and most never seek treatment, according to a study published on Monday.
No surprise there. Count me in.

Anyway, speaking of alcohol abuse - all you greenies, thanks:
Der Spiegel Online reports that a 2006 barley shortage will raise the wholesale price of German beer this May. Many brewing industry lobbyists attribute the price rise to farmers forgoing barley for corn in order to satisfy the global demand for biofuels, especially from the United States. In the past year, the price of barley has doubled on the German market, from €200 to €400 per ton.
Yup. Since farmers are growing more corn instead of barley here in the U.S. too, beer prices are going to be going up all over.

Just what we need. And it isn't just the cost of barley. Not only are fucking tweekers are stealing kegs and turning them in to recyclers, some people would rather just recycle them and skip their deposit:
Beer makers losing money on missing kegs

The theft problem is twofold, he said. Some average keg-buying customers opt to forgo their deposits, which can sometimes range from $10 to $30, because they can cover that expense, and then some, if they sell to scrap dealers.

He could not say how much kegs go for, because prices change locally. But given prices metal trading prices in the past year, a keg could fetch from $15 to $55 or more at scrap yards.
Once again, pass the cost on to us beer drinkers.

And on top of that, check this shit:
Everyone shows ID for beer in Tenn.

AP - Sat Jun 30, 11:36 PM ET Sent 597 times

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Comer Wilson hasn't had to show his ID to buy beer in a while. Maybe it's the 66-year-old man's long white beard. Starting Sunday, gray hair won't be good enough. Wilson and everyone else will be required to show identification before buying beer in Tennessee stores — no matter how old the buyer appears.
How fucking stupid.

I don't don't have a problem with cashiers I.D.-ing someone who looks say, 30 or less. But come one now. If you're too stupid to be able to tell if someone who is obviously legal age - like 60, you shouldn't be working there.

Fucking nannies.
