The scariest words you can hear…

February 4, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was just listening to a cable news channel (Fox, of course) and the scariest words you can hear came out of the speakers.  Yes, I’m going to make you play the guessing game.  I’ll get you started; it wasn’t:

You’re drafted.

Your money or your life.

Your services are no longer necessary.

You are being audited.

Let me read you your rights.

None of that, sorry.  The words were, “In the name of <insert the name of any appropriate God or Gods here.>  In the particular context of the news report, the speaker was some stupid Muslim’s last video record before they went and blew them self up in an effort to kill some Jews, because God told them to do it.  However, from what I recall of my history classes, those same words have prefaced a plethora of religious inspired violence down through the centuries.  These include, to name a few off the top of my head, the Crusades, the Islamic invasions of Europe, the Spanish Inquisition, Nazi Germany, the destruction of countless native cultures and artifacts at the hands of Catholic Missionaries, England’s lengthy list of conquests during the height of Her power, the current insanity in the Middle East, Spain’s rape of South America, the continuing low level war between India and Pakistan, and, if we consider Communism to be a religion (which it is if you look closely,) Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam, the USSR under Stalin, plus too many supporting cast roles to be mentioned here.

As a global community we have many problems, many threats facing us.  These include the politicization of Global Warming, over population, lack of education, HIV/AIDS, other health threats like the Bird Flu, clashes of culture, too many languages, dictators, lack of education, and far too many others to list.  However, to me, the worst, the very worst problem we face are those words, “In the name of…”

Bat out of hell, bite me world!

January 29, 2007

Hi Brit,

I was in a bit of a nostalgic mood this afternoon, so I put “Bat Out of Hell” on and cranked it up.  Man, what perfect timing!  Global Warming, extremest Muslim terrorists, liberals, Jane Fonda, Britney’s beaver, Big Brother racism, Hillary Clinton, the United Nations, President Bush, AlGore, Iraq, Iran, nuclear bombs, blood in the streets, and the end of the world; screw it all!  So, take a few minutes, put the CD on, crank it up and sing along!

Bat Out Of Hell lyrics

The sirens are screaming and the fires are howling

Way down in the valley tonight
There’s a man in the shadows with a gun in his eye
And a blade shining oh so bright
There’s evil in the air and there’s thunder in the sky
And a killer’s on the bloodshot streets
And down in the tunnel where the deadly are rising
Oh I swear I saw a young boy
Down in the gutter
He was starting to foam in the heat
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world
that’s pure and good and right
And wherever you are and wherever you go
There’s always gonna be some light
But i gotta get out
I gotta break it out now
Before the final crack of dawn
So we gotta make the most of our one night together
When it’s over you know
We’ll both be so alone
Like a bat out of hell
I’ll be gone when the morning comes
When the night is over
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone
Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes
But when the day is done
And the sun goes down
And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you
I’m gonna hit the highway like a battering ram

On a silver black phantom bike

When the metal is hot and the engine is hungry

And we’re all about to see the light

Nothing ever grows in this rotten old hole

Everything is stunted and lost

And nothing really rocks

And nothing really rolls

And nothing’s ever worth the cost

And I know that I’m damned if I never get out

And maybe I’m damned if I do

But with every other beat I got left in my heart

You know I’d rather be damned with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night with you

If I gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

If Gotta be damned you know I wanna be damned

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night

Dancing through the night with you
Oh Baby you’re the only thing in this whole world

     that’s pure and good and right

And wherever you are and wherever you go

There’s always gonna be some light

But I gotta get out

I gotta break it out now

Before the final crack of dawn

So we gotta make the most of our one night together

When it’s over you know

We’ll both be so alone

Like a bat out of hell

I’ll be gone when the morning comes

When the night is over

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone gone gone

Like a bat out of hell I’ll be gone when the morning comes

But when the day is done

And the sun goes down

And the moonlight’s shining through

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

Then like a sinner before the gates of heaven

I’ll come crawling on back to you

I can see myself tearing up the road

Faster than any other boy has ever gone

And my skin is raw but my soul is ripe

And no one’s gonna stop me now

I gotta make my escape

But I can’t stop thinking of you

And I never see the sudden curve until it’s way too late

I never see the sudden curve till it’s way too late

Then I’m dying on the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere is tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Breaking out of my body

And flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Then I’m dying at the bottom of a pit in the blazing sun

Torn and twisted at the foot of a burning bike

And I think somebody somewhere must be tolling a bell

And the last thing I see is my heart

Still beating

Still beating

Breaking out of my body and flying away

Like a bat out of hell

Thanks Jim; thanks Meat!  Still love it; still a fan.

Hitler, Chavez – same number of letters…

January 19, 2007

Hi Brit,

Here we go again, another dictator with a Hitler fetish, Rule by decree passed for Chavez.  Will someone please shoot this monster-in-waiting before the sheep start taking him seriously?  For that matter, why hasn’t the UN shut this loon down?  Oh, I forgot; the UN is absolutely impotent and corrupt.  My bad.

Smoking Nazis on the move!

January 16, 2007

Hi Brit,

And you thought you were alone in this!  Smoking foes bring the fight to apartment buildings  What, I must ask, is the point of having a bowling alley that is smoke free?  For that matter, why, when the initial report showing that second hand smoke was dangers was proved to be a pack of lies, haven’t all these laws been stricken down by the courts?  Fortunately, our home is set back a ways from the road, so this may not be a personal issue for me.  However, there are several movements under way, again by the smoking Nazis, to keep me from smoking in my truck.  When that gets here, violence may well be the result! 

My favorite view of this came from Andrew Dice Clay, a comedian, on an episode of Dharma and Greg.  He was to be a speaker at some event and wandered in smoking a cigarette.  One of the society women coughed gently, then asked, “Don’t you know that second hand smoke is more dangerous than smoking?”  To which he replies after flicking the ash from his cig, “Then I guess I made the right choice.”

Death to the smoking Nazis!  Up the Revolution!

European denial

January 15, 2007

Hi Grit

In addition to the problems with UK law, as explained in previous posts, over here we also are subjected to the laws of the European. Historically, it has been found that the country that abides by EU regulations the most is – yes, you’ve guessed it – the UK. Other countries such as France, Germany and Spain, only enforce them if it suits their purpose.

Following the news that you uncovered, it now appears that the last freedom is being attacked, the freedom of speach.

In answer to your question, yes if is EU law, we have to abide by it.

A little EU help please

January 15, 2007

Hi Brit,

I thought an understanding of the EU was in my grasp, until I saw this, Push for EU Holocaust denial ban.  Without going into how stupid denying the Holocaust is, I am confused as to how much power the European Union has over it’s member states.  As I understand it, Britain has a reasonable level of free speech, which would permit Nazi stuff and anti-Jewish propaganda.  So, if the EU passes this ban, do y’all have to change your laws, ignore it, or what?
