SCORPIONS ROCK!


That’s really all that needs to be said.

Saw them last night down in Ontario. Cinderella opened for them, they also rocked.

Both sounded excellent live. The Scorpions will be missed. Their show was probably the best live show I’ve ever seen.
They absolutely kicked ass.

I’ll write more later.

Hard hitting, neck snapping safety dies at 61.

Yes he hit a man so hard that he broke his neck, but he was one hell of a baller.

Former Raiders’ ‘Assassin’ Jack Tatum Dies at 61

COLUMBUS, Ohio — He was called the “Assassin.”

Jack Tatum was one of the hardest hitters in the NFL, a Pro Bowl safety who intimidated opposing players with bone-jarring tackles that helped make his Oakland Raiders one of toughest teams of its era.

He’s also a player who will always be tied to one of the game’s most tragic moments — a hit in a preseason game that left New England Patriots receiver Darryl Stingley paralyzed from the neck down.

Tatum died Tuesday at age 61 in an Oakland hospital. The cause was a massive heart attack, according to friend and former Ohio State teammate John Hicks. Tatum had battled diabetes and other health problems for years, Hicks said.

The collision with Stingley happened Aug. 12, 1978, at Oakland Coliseum.

Korea heating up a tad. Kind of normal though. Whenever the US and South Korea do any combined forces drill, NorKo has a fit and declares that they will retaliate with the full might of the North Korean people, yada, yada.

US shows its power to NKorea with carrier drills

ABOARD THE USS GEORGE WASHINGTON – If you want to let someone know you’re thinking about them, send a massive aircraft carrier.

The East Sea off the coast of the Korean peninsula roiled with U.S. and South Korean ships, submarines, fighter jets and helicopters Monday in a set of high-profile military maneuvers intended to show North Korea that it is being watched.

Military officials said that despite threats of retaliation, North Korea was staying clear. Most of the firepower for the four-day exercises — which North Korea condemns — has been flying off the decks of the USS George Washington, a U.S. supercarrier that can carry up to 70 aircraft and more than 5,000 sailors and aviators.

Washington and Seoul are hoping the drills — and the deployment of the most potent symbol of American military reach in the U.S. Navy — will send a powerful message to North Korea in the wake of the March sinking of a South Korean warship that killed 46 sailors. An international investigation determined the ship was sunk by torpedo, likely in a sneak attack by a North Korean submarine.

NASA’s Deep Space Camera Locates Host of ‘Earths’

Scientists celebrated Sunday after finding more than 700 suspected new planets — including up to 140 similar in size to Earth — in just six weeks of using a powerful new space observatory.

Early results from NASA’s Kepler Mission, a small satellite observing deep space, suggested planets like Earth were far more common than previously thought.

Past discoveries suggested most planets outside our solar system were gas giants such as Jupiter and Saturn — but the new evidence tipped the balance in favor of solid worlds.

I missed the draw the Pedophile Muhammad day, so I decided to go ahead and turn in my homework. I know it’s late, but, at least it’s done.

Piss on the Pedophile Muhammad and the shitheels that follow him.

I declare a fatwah on all assholes that think Muhammadouchebag is a prophet. He was a murdering, pedophile asshole.

I hate the man. Absolutely hate the man.

President Haters

By J.R. Dunn

“I’ll make those f*ckers glad to mutate.”

- Franklin D. Roosevelt, in Roosevelt after Inauguration by William Burroughs

William Burroughs will never be an icon of the conservative movement. A proud junkie, an aggressive homosexual, a leader of both the Beat movement and the Counterculture, a man who shot his wife by “accident” while playing a party game, Burroughs was, if anything, the polar opposite of the conservative ideal.

But there was one element of Burroughs’ thought not altogether alien to conservatives: his opinion of Franklin D. Roosevelt. Relatively late in his career, Burroughs published a short piece titled Roosevelt after Inauguration, which featured FDR swaggering around Washington (this is fiction, remember), wearing a purple toga and accompanied by a gang of killer baboons whom he sends after his enemies. The story climaxes with the massacre of the Supreme Court by the baboons, whereupon FDR gazes contemplatively across the Potomac at the country now lying at his feet and utters the line quoted above.

What inspired Burroughs to embark on this exercise in nastiness remains unclear. He himself claimed that he was promised a high position in the St. Louis sewer department only to be denied it by New Deal do-gooders, but this may be only part of the legend. Whatever the case, Roosevelt after Inauguration remains one of the purest expressions of political hatred ever put into writing. If every foul attack made over the years against Nixon, Reagan, Gingrich, Bush, Cheney, and Palin were rolled into one, the result would not match a single paragraph. Roosevelt after Inauguration is a masterpiece of political scurrility.

Which brings us to Barack Obama.

I haven’t posted in a few days, because I am supporting Arizona’s economy.

I’ve shelled out over $500 in the last couple of days. I think I have done my part.

Hotel, gas, food, clothing, gyro RC helicopter, etc.

L.A. can kiss my lily white ass.

It’s hotter than Hades here though. 109 seems to be the norm, but the car temp gauge read 116 at one point yesterday.

Last night there was a thunderstorm that rolled through here. It’s still pushing easterly this morning. I don’t hear the thunder anymore, but I can still see the dark clouds off in the distance.

The local Walmart still sells guns, whereas the ones in California do not.

Arizona is an open carry state, yet I haven’t seen anyone carrying since I got here.

No slaughter and mayhem in the streets either.

I’ll get back to it on Monday, or Tuesday.

Later.
