Tony Blair Slams Back

British Prime Minister Tony Blair just keeps on cementing himself as ONE world leader that "gets it". If you didn't catch any of his stinging responses to a deathly idiotic British press Tuesday (I was fortunate enough to catch it flicking past C-SPAN, but as average Americans, there was probably some reality show or Desperate Housewives episode on that prevented you from doing so), it was a marvelous thing to behold. The never-ending ignorance of the elite press on both sides of the Atlantic never ceases to amaze me.

I've been trying to find a transcript on line...if I do, I'll post it.

Give those idiots hell, Tony. I just wish W had the cojones to call out the White House media vultures the way Blair did with the asinine British leeches.

Archive Update

Hello...hello...

Going through some fun stuff right now - a box full of WFAT airchecks that vary from 1978 and 1979...really jostling the old memory chips!

These are off-air tapes...some from Hank's personal collection, some taped by DXers and sent in to the station. As such, the quality varies. Still good to have until I can get my elbows into the WFAT reel-to-reel skimmer tapes.

Logging and tagging them now...should have them in the archive officially shortly.

WFAT...caring about you and the profit margin.

Stay cool, cats.

Conspiracy Theory

After watching Joe Torre mis-manage the Yankee bullpen by turning two wins into losses within the past week, I am now convinced that he is purposely doing this to try and kill me.

Mountains from Molehills

Good Tuesday, everypeoples. Busy day, lots going on…mind racing. We’re in Day 5 of the humidity from hell, which has given us New Yawk commuters some fine air to chew on. The day begins with the Yankees in first place - and a staff of two healthy pitchers. Unbelieveable.

I was sitting around trying to figure out what would be more annoying – being forced to watch poker on TV, the Tour de France on TV, or soccer in general – with the morning news shows on in the background. Then I started to get aggrivated over this whole Karl Rove situation.

The next time one of your squishy liberal friends tries to tell you that “it doesn’t matter” that the majority of decision makers, writers and reporters in the mainstream media lean decidedly left, you need look no further than the way the coverage of this so-called “CIA leak” is being handled by them to know that they are full of shit. It would be laughable if it weren’t so maddening.

Basically, you have the White House strategist (Rowe) being attacked for trying to steer a journalist away from a bogus, bullshit story being peddled by anti-war wonk Joseph Wilson about Iraq’s attempts to obtain WMD, the details of which I will spare you (this is a BLOG, not Moby Dick). It just so happens that Wilson’s wife worked for the CIA.

So Rowe mentions some off-handed remark about Wilson’s wife, and now suddenly he’s leaking classified info about CIA operatives. Guess what – he didn’t. However, the Democratic smear-and-destroy machine has very little use for facts, and a VERY willing accomplice in the media.

What we are seeing is the political equivalent of circling vultures. The media sits and waits for any morsel of meat that could take down the President. When they can’t get that, they’ll take any smidgen of chaff that can take down those around him. With the Rove matter, they smell blood. And because it’s Rove – who has run rings around them repeatedly – they want to pick that carcass clean.

This is the same media that happily ate up any leaks from the CIA itself in the past. This is the same media that bends over backwards to use the terms “alleged” and “accused” when talking about criminals that are on trial. When it comes to someone in the Bush administration, it’s “guilty without trial”; immediate assumptions of wrongdoing before the investigation is even finished.

Now today, the media is tripping over themselves to twist the meaning of something President Bush said in regards to the investigation ages ago, when they know full well what he meant when he said it. But that’s the Democrats – and their pardners in the media – for you.

All of this is why I laugh hysterically when I hear lefties refer to Republicans as “mean-spirited”. There is no one – NO ONE, I tell you – that engages a smear-and-destroy campaign quite like the Democratic Party, especially now that it has become the party of Dean/Franken/Soros/Moore/etc.

Like I said before, it would be funny if it weren’t SO maddening.

PS – I’m going to upload the archive from my OLD blog this week, just to round things out. The old Blog was more acerbic…I think we need to add an edge to this place.

The Site is FINALLY Up...Hoo-Rah!

After much tweaking and squeaking, I finally got the site up en totum at midnight last night (or this morning, depending on how you look at it). It needs a little polish, and I need to get a new freakin' scanner so I can get all the cool crap converted to .PDFs and added, but that too shall happen. It's simple math:

Time + cash = new scanner.

Meantime, go check it out in skeletal form as see what you think. Dig the grooviness.

...and in the "Who Give's a Flaming Rat's Ass" category...

Hey, look at that: they are announcing the Emmy nominations right now.

For someone who hates 90% of everything that is on TV, and barely watches it (outside of a ballgame or The Family Guy) AND loathes awards shows with an ever-burning passion, this is like an evil, demon harmonic conversion.

AVERT YOUR EYES!!!! AVERT YOUR EYES!!!!

A Great Gift Idea

The perfect gift for your favorite idiotic Amnesty International member.

Welcome to the Halfway Point

Well, the Yankees lumber into the All-Star Break having taken 3 of 4 from the Cleveland Injuns, and can sniff Red Sox tuchas, being a mere 2 and a half games out. How they fare the rest of the way will tell the tale.

Four big games at Fenway coming up after the break...I'm hoping they take three, but a split will do (I'm not greedy). Here's hoping they turn the Sawx in chow-dear.

Bomb Attacks in London

Four or five bombs ripped through the London subway system this morning, as well as tearing the roof of a double-decker bus. While all the details are not yet known, an Al Quada splinter group has already claimed responsibility.

As I have tried to explain to people until I am blue in the face, Islamofascism is the biggest threat to the free world since Nazism and Eurofascism skipped together hand in hand, dropping flowers and bombs all over thier neighbors. The only way to “deal” with this is to grab it by the throat and shake the life out of it, just like we did with the threats that came before it.

Until someone has the balls to deal with it that way, then things like this will continue to happen – any time and anywhere - until people finally decide they’ve had enough.

You wonder when enough will be “enough”. There’s too much modern-day brain damage to deal with that gets in the way. Back during World War II, you had singers, actors and actresses stumping for the war effort. Now, you have nutjob Hollywood assclowns and limo riding musicians protesting the treatment of detainees in a prison camp – during a war - that would gladly kill us all in a heartbeat. My mind boggles.

Yours should, too.

Happy Independence Day

Hoping your Fourth of July is a happy and safe one. Let's take a moment today and appreciate the freedoms this country offers us, which is why we celebrate today.

If you have a few minutes, please read a great piece by Daniel Henninger from Friday's Wall Street Journal Online called Ground Zero to Baghdad. Some definite (and somewhat sobering) food for thought on this of all days, as the world seems to get a little crazier all around us.

Happy Birthday, America.

Today's The Day

Some good advice from the legendary Ray Stevens.
