Newelljack: this I gotta hear
DaiThe2Flu: we were just sitting on the street in front of a friend's house and these little kids ride by on bikes
DaiThe2Flu: for some reason, the guy I was with asked if they were freshman and the kid goes "what? you've never seen a mexican before?"
DaiThe2Flu: they ride off, two different kids ride by, tell us not to talk shit
DaiThe2Flu: we laugh at them
DaiThe2Flu: they ride off
DaiThe2Flu: next thing we know, we look down the street and there are like ten to twenty kids on bikes riding towards us
DaiThe2Flu: and we all thought it was hilarious
DaiThe2Flu: this little kid, maaaybe three and a half feet tall throws his bike down and is like "don't talk shit motherfucker"
DaiThe2Flu: he must be like ten years old
DaiThe2Flu: he walks up to this guy mason (friend's brother) who's turned and started walking away, jumps up -because he can't reach him- and slaps him on the face
DaiThe2Flu: now I suddenly get pissed off cause this guy's tiny and he thinks he's all hard.. he's wearing like a collared button up shirt
DaiThe2Flu: so I grab him and like five guys surround me, someone hits me in the face, then they freak out because my friend ame went inside and they leave because they think the police are coming
DaiThe2Flu: all in all, it was hilarious

I bought a washing machine for $50 since ours broke last night. cameron and I tried to fix it with duct tape, but it wasn't happening. luckly someone I knew from work had mentioned they had one for sale a few days ago...odd timing, huh?
then later I talked to my good friend jenna and we counted the times we had actually seen each other in the 4 or 5 years that we have known each other...only 5 times. this wouldn't be that amazing of a number if it weren't for the fact that we are so close. I always seem to go from talking to her a lot to not hearing from her for a while, but for the past few months it has been pretty consistent.
saturday night I went out to the bars downtown. well, first we had plans to see a band play in Los Osos, but we didn't want to pay the $10 cover when we got there, so we drove back. the car we were riding in overheated at the corner of LOVR and Madonna, so we pushed it to the curb and walked back to josh's house. I played football with josh for 6 year back in turlock and he just moved to SLO a few months ago. he decided he didn't want to go downtown anymore, so I met up with my roommate for a few beers then ran into some friends from work and ended up hanging out with them. met a couple nice girls and then walked home around 2...it is so nice to be able to walk home from the bars.
I'm going to work early tomorrow, so I better get some sleep. if anyone wants to go to the midstate fair this week, let me know.

isn't it weird that at the end of every relationship, you start thinking about those in the past? there is one that keeps popping into my head more and more often lately. I had known this girl for what seemed like forever and I was honestly in love with her. however, I made a huge mistake and many little mistakes after that, all which have resulted in us probably never speaking again. I wish her the best and sometimes I even check her blog just to see how she is doing. I have come to realize that there may never be a place in her life for me again, even as just a friend. I miss her completely and I want her to know that I never meant her any harm. as for kharma, I believe it exists.

things with cc had been going awry lately and I wasn't quite sure what to do about it. yesterday we sat down and talked things out and decided we probably shouldn't be together. it was rough, but I think for the best. it seems like ever since heather and I split, I just haven't been the same. I just wish things didn't happen the way they did. I haven't even talked to her since april. I hope things are going well for her.
well, its saturday and I have the next two days off work, so I better get to doing something away from my computer. have a good weekend.

last night's party was a blast. you know it was a good party when four squad cars pull up on a monday night. the SLO PD was being cool, but the campus cops were being dicks, shining lights in everyone's face. I just can't remember if this was before or after our 3rd keg (technically 4th since the neighbors had a keg too and had torn the fence down ealier that day). did I mention it was monday? I got up and left around 10, came home and had breakfast, then went back to bed until 2:30. of all my tripped-out dreams, this one has to take the cake. all I can remember was that I was in england and some irish ship was after me. to get away I was going to lure them in front of my castle and have people in the castle fire cannons at them while I am in my ship up river. but first I had to get to my ship, which meant I had to swim by their ships. when I got to shore I was in some town and for some reason or another everyone had to go into locker rooms and take their clothes off. I was (and still am) totally confused about this part. sometime around this point is when I woke up. I'm not sure what it means, but it does rank up there with me as a mediocre international spy. maybe I should stop drinking.....
I found out last week that my ex gave me scabies back in january. at the time when the itching started, she insisted that I did not have it and even after seeing three doctors, nobody could pinpoint it. finally I saw my family doctor back home who gave me the bad news. now I'm cured, after 6 months of thinking I was slowly dying. thanks heather, really appreciate it.

and what a great day it was. seriously, I'm not being sarcastic. even after a bit of confusion last night (job going from ready to canceled back to ready) I showed up ready this morning and wound up on a different job because someone was running late. we got to the house at 9, but nobody was there. after an hour of phone calls and waiting, the client showed up so we could move 5 pieces. how nice is that? the only thing heavy was a desk that does not even rate in my top 10 heavy-ass items. when we got back, I picked up my pay check. much to my surprise, it was quite substantial. however, it was lacking the time I spent observing jobs. after checking into it further, it turns out I had two boxes at the warehouse and each one had a check in it. now I can start making bigger payments on my card. so with the checks safely deposited in the bank, my day just got better. usualy, a trip to the post office can ruin my day. but there was a spot right in front of the post office, didn't even have to use the structure. these little things make me so happy. although, I think most of this happiness is a direct result of school being over. just a few more days of work and a small final, then I can pack up the jeep for a bad ass KROQ weenie roast, then head home for a camping/4-wheeling trip.

when I got to the party, it was just 5 or 6 guys and the four aforementioned girls. britney was trying to drag the other three to leave, but the guys were not making an easy time of it. being a guy myself, I knew exactly what they were doing. the girls were throwing all the typical excuses at them, trying to find a way out, but the guys were well practised in the art of sexual cohersion. when we finally did break the threshold and get outside, the guys showed their true colors by making snide comments towards myself and britney for not offering our friends up on an auction block for the guys to take advantage of. there is nothing worse than a sore loser. if you spend an evening working towards a sexual goal only to have it slip between your fingers, take it like a man. just go to your room and jerk off like you do every night. don't admit your goal was only to have sex by acting like a jerk. at least keep some dignity in case you run into the girl again. I hope the girls understand what was going on, but being that they are all very attractive I am sure they have encountered this many times before.
back to getting the girls into the jeep...
as each of them climbed into the jeep, I handed out the sweatshirts that I brought along with me. I have never seen a happier group of drunken roommates. the whole ride home they talked about how great of a guy I am for being considerate enough to bring sweatshirts for all of them, even though they were so drunk they probably wouldn't even feel cold. and not only did I keep them warm, I saved them from a group of real jerks. so, here's to me, mr. sober driver without ulterior motives.
stuff like this helps put things into perspective. being on the other side now helps me realize how big of a jerk guys can be. I just hope I never have to beg for sex again.

ok, I have been severly lacking in the current event/social satire section, so here you go. I'm sure everyone has heard about the whole Kobe Bryant case, being accused of rape and what-not. a typical defense is to undermine the accuser and destroy her credibility. well, with her testimony now being required (typicaly, sexual history is not admitted as evidence) I don't think Kobe's lawyers have to do much to destroy this girl's credibility. check out this section of a report from espn.com
Bryant's attorneys, however, say the information is important because it will show the woman had a "plan" to have sex with Bryant, perhaps to win the attention of an ex-boyfriend. The defense has also suggested the woman was injured during sex with someone else, saying she had multiple partners during the week of her encounter with Bryant, including someone within 15 hours afterward. The woman's attorney, John Clune, has called that claim "patently false."
now, I'm not a girl but I would assume if I were and had been raped, I would not be having sex with someone else 15 hours later! but if that is the case, then I'm headed to Vail this summer...colorado chicks are easy. what a slut. for the whole report, see the report

well, its over. the 2003-04 scrfu season is officially over and both first and second squads finished undefeated. first squad will take the #5 seed at the sweet 16 national tournament in colorado springs in april and second squad has all but finished the year. just an alumni game, possible match vs. Cal seconds and the santa barbara tournament remain. my goal is to make the top 30 squad that travels to colorado.
I would like to start a boycott against AT&T cell phones, but they were just bought out by cingular this month. so I guess you just shouldn't worry about it. but AT&T still sucks.

current mood: much much better
a note for all of you out there, if you are feeling down because of something that has happened in one of your relationships, the best thing to do is just wait a day then talk it out with the person. I was feeling pretty down last night and most of the morning. even though I thought I was right, it still hurt knowing that the other person disagreed. well, we just talked it out and now I am feeling a lot better.
and now for something completely different...
all you poly kids out there with nothing to do this saturday, head out to the sports complex on highland and watch the rugby team finish an undefeated season against univ. of san diego. kick-off is 1pm for first side and 3pm for second squad (my team). both squads are undefeated.

so I was goofing around on www.collegehumor.com tonight and saw a link for www.drinkingstuff.com and that led to www.drinkinggamerules.com I recommend each site to you all when you're bored.
on a sad note, heather was supposed to come down this weekend. got time off work and everything. but when she went out to her car she noticed that someone smashed up her windshield last night. completely shattered. I feel bad that I don't get to see her, but I feel worse that something like that happened. even worse because she had such a bad week. you know your boss is a moron when you tell them you need to be off at a certain time so you can make it to your other job, but they won't let you off, so you lose the second job. then at the last second they give you the time you need, except said job is already gone. punk ass bitch. now she has the time off for tomorrow because she was going to come down and she finished all her homework early for the same reason. now she is going to be lonely and bored, a double-whammy.
note about partying...you know you had a good time when someone wakes you up at 8:30 AM and offers you a ride home on their way to work. doesn't hurt if you're still drunk too. thanks chris.

current mood: stuffed, that was a good lunch
I know some of you have been desperately waiting for a new blog, so I will hit you with one. you pickin' up what I'm layin' down? lately things have been going pretty well. last friday we traveled down to play UCSD in what should have been a rugby game, but turned into something I have never seen before in my life. I mean, I know our firsts are a good team, but 130-0? that's just not right, but when you put up 20 points in the first 15 minutes of an 80 minute game, the other team tends to give up. as for the seconds game, we struggled to find a rhythm in the first half, putting up just 12 points (my first two tries ever!). the second half was a different story. after giving up a long run to make the score 12-7, I picked the ball out of a 5-meter scrum and walked into the try zone to complete my hat trick. after that the ball got spread around more and the final score was in the 50's.
when I got back from san diego, I drove up to san francisco to see my good friend heather for valentine's day. its always fun to stay up there, her roommates are always nice and don't mind me eating their food. the only problem with the trip was when I woke up sunday and couldn't move my neck. after seeing a doctor, I picked up a bottle of valium and was set for the rest of the weekend. its almost all better now and I expect to play against long beach on saturday.
on a sad note about rugby, tonight is the last night that we will have Mike Howe from South Africa coaching us. it was a great experience having someone so knowledgable about the game here to teach us some of the finer points. hopefully we will all take something from it and that will make our game that much better. can we hit 150?
let's see, what else...nobody wants to hear about school. anyone know of any internships with developers on the central coast for next quarter? how about during the summer? I need a freakin' job. not that I don't looooove VGs, but I am kinda sick of the freshmen. oh yeah, luke and I are also looking for a house available in july. any potential roommates out there? let us know.
well kids, that's all I got for right now. one last thing, boo CEQA.

current mood: holy crap, did anyone else see the lightning and hear the thunder that shook my window?!?!
damn, that was pretty sweet. not often do we get storms down here, let alone ones that flash lightning and thunder loud enough to shake my window. I always loved the rain. I have a thing about moving water and streams. when I was a kid, I would go out in the neighborhood and race sticks down the gutters to see which would make it to the drain first. and now that I am in san luis where we actualy have streams and rivers, I like to watch the water levels rise and speed up.
as for my weekend, a win in rugby and a nice nap during the superbowl left me wanting nothing. however, hosting visitors can wear you out. that is if you actualy do things for them. all I did was let them in the door. now I have to pick up after them and do the dishes. and now the xbox is gone, the beer almost finished and I still have to bring the tv back upstairs. not to mention homework, laundry and studying for my midterms. gotta love it........

current mood: think I'm still drunk
well, right now its 1, just a few hours before the big game. as you may have read, or can read in a second, I have quite a superbowl drinking game lined up. one problem, I don't really feel like doing it! mostly because last night we were playing Madden on the xbox according to the same rules...until about 4 am. some point around 3 some guy knocked on our door and asked if he could play too. being the friendly drunks we are, we let him in. friendly drunks...thats not really true. dave was telling a story and I held up my hand and made the whole "blah, blah, blah" motion, then he grabbed my hand and tried to break it, so I punched him in the nuts. well, of course he didn't realize that the nut-shot was for grabbing my hand, so he punched me back, total kidney shot. if I hadn't been on the verge of puking, I probably would have retaliated once again. but being a 'friendly drunk' I recovered and returned to kicking his ass in madden. back to the random guy...think his name was nate...said he is here visiting his sister for the weekend. never met his sister, only about 4 doors down though. oh well. ok, time to go buy food and what-nots for the game. my pick - patriots.

the other new experience was into the underground world of sushi. my good friend sarah is quite a sushi fanatic so I thought she would be a good tour guide, and she did not disappoint. as I write this, I am fresh back from feasting on spicy tuna, shrimp tempura and scallops. freakin great. I'm going back as soon as I can afford to.
yeah, so that's what I did this weekend.
ok, so after an average finals week and my first 3.0 in a year, I packed my bags and hit the road for a week of snowboarding in colorado. but before we hit the slopes, we hit the strip. Vegas, baby. we rolled into town around 1 am feeling pretty good thanks to our good buddies Crown and Seven. after a small pre-party in the hotel room, we rolled over to Hard Rock and that is where I got ditched thanks to my being only 20. but not worries, I was buzzing and ready to wander around. deciding not to pay for a cab, I walked the mile or so from Hard Rock to the Bellagio. it wasn't that bad, other than I was totaly paranoid. having missed the fountain show and the buffet, I checked out a few other casinos then went back to my room at Excalibur.
the next day we woke up bright and early, sometime around 11, and headed back on the road. somewhere in utah we pulled up next to some fine looking ladies at about 80mph. an attempt to talk to them was an exercise in futility, plus they were headed to Vail. Derek managed well, but it being Peter's parents' car, needless to say, Peter was a little scared about running next to another SUV at that speed. Now comes the time that I can't remember... At some point we got to Steamboat, I later got out of the car and puked, then got dragged into the condo where I resumed my puking for about an hour, climbed into bed, got kicked out, climbed into another bed, passed out then woke up the next morning ready to shred. And but what to my surprise, 25 inches of fresh powdered had arrived! With nobody on the hill and my knees burried in powder, I had the best day of boarding ever. The only problem was trying to find the condo when I was done. Since I don't remember coming in the night before and I was just following Mark when we left, I didn't know how to get back on my own. 45 minutes later, I was where I was supposed to be.
our condo complex had an outdoor hot tub that was much to our liking, as on the first day we met a group of girls who were staying a few doors down from us. and luckily for me, this year they were actualy from cal poly, not georgia! we hung out with them the rest of the week and went to a few parties, a place where we got to cook our own steaks and a few more parties. the bus ride home was hell, as I was on the verge of the nastiest flu in the history of man.
and then I was in Turlock.......
yeah, turlock. which wasn't so bad, short of the hole somewhere in my throat. well, at least the one that wasn't supposed to be there. made it painful to swallow and damn near impossible to eat fudge (oh the humanity). on top of that, my stye that I have had since last february swelled back up to mammoth proportions. but everything else was smooth sailing, good family, nice presents and no emotional fits by anyone. guess we can credit that to there being 5 fewer people this year. not that it is their fault exactly, but adding my oldest brother, his wife, her daughter, and their two sons creates extra stress that nobody needs. plus, I would have been kicked out of my room...again.
now comes new years. big city san francisco, baby. micah, megan and I rolled into town early, saw the sights, ate the food then hit the booze. can somebody say margaritaville? after some confusion as to when the train would arrive, half of us made it on and the other half waited impatiently for what seemed like hours, but was at most 20 minutes. thankfully the group that made it on the first train had waited for us at the next station and we all rode happily to embarcadero to watch the fireworks. that is after we ran for 5 minutes trying to find a place I thought was sure not to exist. but we finally stopped with about 30 seconds to spare. however, the girl I most wanted to kiss as the clock struck 12 was kissing someone else, so I did the same. the walk home was in the rain as we passed the first two train stations on foot. heather and I were making drunken happy new years calls which wound up with me talking to an old friend who I hadn't spoken to in over 2 years. I think its cool now, we talk again, though I don't think it will ever be the same.
then back in SLO...
for the most horrific weekend of rugby practice that I can remember. and I even missed a day! but that got us ready for our 45-0 win over stanford (first side won 72-0). we're all the better for it as we start league play this weekend against UCLA. that is if my legs ever recover from monday's hour of sprints.
well, I think that is everything you all have missed since my last blog, so I hope you enjoyed this journey through my break. hope you are all jealous, because it was one bad ass break. I think I can safely say that it was the best ever...until spring break in Ireland this march!

CBC SPORTS ONLINE - They may be older and a little slower but can still put on a show. "It felt like we were 10 again, but with the legs of 50-year-olds," former Montreal Canadiens' great Guy Lafleur said after Saturday's Heritage Classic alumni game. Both clubs, sporting toques and wide smiles, wowed the 57,167 fans at Commonwealth Stadium with end-to-end rushes and numerous scoring chances. "The air is so cold ... the lungs can't open up," Linseman, catching his breath on the Oilers' bench, offered during a stoppage in play. The game-time wind-chill was -28 degrees. When asked before the game if he would attempt to block any shots, Oilers' defenceman Paul Coffey said, "You didn't see any of those out of me for 20 years, so you won't see any out of me today." But most of the players didn't seem to care about the weather. It was all about re-living some old memories and creating new ones. The players even reached back to yesteryear, shovelling snow off the ice between the first and second 15-minute halves. "Everybody is so happy to be involved in this," former Oiler great Mark Messier, the only active NHLer in the game, said during a stoppage in play. "It's unbelievable to see so many fans come out to see this game." "The whole concept was just fantastic," added Lafleur, who would like another crack at the Oilers oldies. "I would go for a rematch," he said. Responded former Oilers captain Wayne Gretzky: "Our team needs a year to rest."
only canadians would play hockey in -28...not to mention the 57,000 fans that sat through the entire 7 hours between the old-timers game and the regular season game that followed.
now, for a "did you know..." it would just be too easy to say something about Michael Jackson. such an easy target, so I'm going to come up with something else...
Did you know... (Nov. 24, 2003) -- An officiating blunder gave Baltimore critical extra time in its fourth-quarter comeback victory over Seattle, the NFL said. NFL supervisor of officials Mike Pereira said both the 40-second clock and the game clock should have been restarted after an officials' conference over a penalty call with 58 seconds left in regulation. The Seahawks had the ball and led 41-38. Because the clock wasn't started, the Ravens had 39 seconds left instead of four or five when they got the ball back on downs at the Baltimore 33. They ended up tying the game on Matt Stover 's field goal following a key 44-yard pass interference penalty. Baltimore won 44-41 in overtime. "The clock was not started at the proper time, which was an administrative error by the officiating crew," Pereira said in a statement. Ravens coach Brian Billick conceded that his team benefited from the mistake by referee Tom White and his crew. "There was, I believe, an administrative error in there, in that the clock should have been wound more quickly," Billick said. The mistake came after the clock stopped with 58 seconds left when head linesman Ed Camp threw a penalty flag. He thought offensive tackle Floyd Womack lined up as an ineligible receiver for Seattle on a second-down play on which Shaun Alexander gained 3 yards to the Baltimore 33. The Ravens called their final timeout at that time, but the clock was stopped for the officials' conference in which it was determined Womack had reported as eligible. The flag was picked up. Pereira said the conference negated Baltimore's timeout, leaving the Ravens with one more. But he said the officials erred in not restarting the game clock and play game clock after the conference. If they had, Baltimore would have been forced to take its final timeout or let the clock run down by 40 seconds or more. Instead, the clocked remained stopped until the next play started: a run for no gain by Alexander on third-and-1. That allowed the Ravens to use their last timeout with 44 seconds left. Alexander again carried for no gain on fourth-and-1, the clock stopped automatically for change of possession. Baltimore got the ball back with 39 seconds left and mounted the tying drive. "It got a little confusing," said Billick, who was fined $15,000 earlier in the season for criticizing the officials. "The official threw the flag because he wasn't aware that 77 (Womack) reported. That's standard procedure. That stopped the clock. We expected that the clock would then be restarted and were prepared to call the timeout. But as they were getting it done, the clock wasn't starting. I thought, let them run that and then we'll call timeout."
stupid refs. sorry for the huge block of text, but I thought the entire story was relevant. hope you all enjoyed my year anniversary of the blog and have a happy thanksgiving!

As part of the negotiations, The Terminator's Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5-year phase-in plan that would become known as "Austro-English" (or, perhaps even better, "Austrionics".)
In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c". Sertainly, thiss will make the sivil servants jump with joy. The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of the "k". This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with the "f". This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.
In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are! possible.
Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.
By the 4th yer peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".
During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensibl riten styl.
Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi tu understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.

Song: Onion John Album: Robots Are Watching Me (When Enemies Appear)
Play the drums and wake the neighbors
Reveal the valedictorian's sexual favors
Get to use a new computer
Find a space ship and quickly loot her
Hold a bum's sign and let him play frisbee
Spend a month living in a teepee
Fly a plane early in the evening
Don't answer the phone and ignore its ringing
Write a song to make everyone happy
Compose a melody to cause ecstacy
Thrash the drums until crowds appear
And always play music without fear

It was revealed on Monday that the 29-year-old Sydney labourer Tapumanaia Lautasi, who ran onto the field late in the match and attempted to tackle Springbok fly-half Louis Koen, was one of eight spectators that tried to invade the pitch.
However, police and security staff managed to stop the others.
This was revealed at the Samoan-born Lautasi's court hearing in Brisbane on Monday. He pleaded guilty to the charge against him and was fined AU$1,200 (US$850). In his plea he stated he had been drunk at the time and apologised, saying he had "drunk eight heavy beers in one hour".
But he may yet face a far bigger penalty than just the fine. Strath Gordon, the Media Manager for the Australian Rugby Union (ARU), said that they would consider imposing a life-ban against Lautasi.
According to the Sydney man, he was on his way to the toilet, when he "spotted a gap and ran onto the pitch". He added that he "wet himself" as he lay unconscious on the turf.

last night, while trying to balance the alcohol with food, I heard one of the funniest things in my life. a group of 5 or 6 german exchange students ordering mexican food in broken english to a mexican immigrant working the register who I had trouble understanding on my own. needless to say, it was quite a challenge for these young germans to get their chicken burritos. and when they did, I believe they said it tasted like "monkey shit". weird shit man...

should I move to germany when I graduate? I don't know what I want to do there, but I think it would be cool to go with by my friend and have a familiar face. or should I go to switzerland? guess I should get a hold of mike and see what he thinks so far. oh well, now I'm just talking to myself.
last night's party was pretty decent, considering when we showed up there was only 1 other person and no alcohol. next thing you know, 50 people I didn't even see come in and the keg is empty. somewhere during this I fell down. also, anyone else know how much it sucks to listen to a girl who you have been hitting on for a few months tell you how nobody likes her? kinda feel invisible. oh well.
some advice for everyone...have a few beers with dinner every night. it makes homework a lot easier to take and just puts a nice end to the day.

Ever heard of the book ‘Harmful to Minors?’ If not, you’re going to hear about it now. The book gives a green light to pedophiles and encourages Americans to be more accepting of children and grown men having sex. The book calls for lowering the age of consensual sex to 12. It suggests that when young children want to have sexual contact, grownups should butt out. It also gets lots of its quotes and research from so-called experts who openly support pedophilia. And that’s not the most outrageous part of this story: The most unbelievable part is that this child abuse manual just received the Los Angeles Times Book Award. In doing so, the Times judges praised the book as “a cogent and passionate critique of the war against young peoples’ sexuality.”
Oh really? How about telling that to Elizabeth Smart. How about telling that to the thousands of children molested, raped and exploited by adults every year. How about telling that to young teenage girls who get pregnant while they’re in middle school? It’s beyond outrageous. It’s just plain crazy to think the L.A. Times has embraced the concept, through this award, that 50 year-old men should be able to have “consensual sex” with 12 year-old boys. Just when you think the elitists in the media couldn’t get any more out there, they prove you and me wrong. You know what? Wackos write books all the time. That’s not news. But what is news is that now, the L.A. Times has put its Good Housekeeping seal of approval on child abuse. It is all that is wrong with modern day liberalism.
Now CNN admits it had evidence of Saddam Hussein’s human rights atrocities and refused to reveal it to the viewers of the world. In many instances, the CNN bigwigs actually knew Saddam Hussein was imprisoning and torturing some of their own employees but they refused to report the truth to the world because that may have gotten them kicked out of Baghdad. After all, that was a city that helped make the network what it is today — but at one point CNN even refused to pass along information to Saddam’s own son-in-laws who had defected that they were being lured back into Iraq to be killed. Now because CNN failed to warn these two men, they were murdered by Saddam after giving weapons inspectors’ key information on Iraq’s nuclear program. Now CNN says what it reported would have endangered the lives of its Iraqi employees, but I say if they couldn’t safely report the truth they should have closed up shop, reported what they already knew, and told the world that Iraq was not a country where journalists could safely operate. Now what’s the point of having a bureau at all if you can’t report the truth?
By withholding critical news about the brutality of Saddam’s regime, CNN was complicit in the lies that it told the world by the Iraqi Information Agency and by Saddam’s Ambassador to the United Nations. CNN kept critical information from the worldwide audience and they may have contributed to global opinion against the war. If the world really knew what was going on inside Iraq that country may have been liberated much, much sooner. But when it counted, CNN kept its mouth shut. Now it’s going to take more than a mealy-mouth op-ed in “The New York Times” to clean up this mess from Mr. Jordan and his bosses at CNN. They created it when they abandoned the people of Iraq simply to keep a news bureau open in Baghdad. I personally hope for their sakes that CNN’s position in Baghdad was worth the price paid by Iraqi blood, because the men, the women and the children of Iraq needed CNN to tell the world of Saddam’s atrocities before his statues were pulled to the ground. Shamefully they didn’t and Mr. Jordan’s op-ed in this case just doesn’t cut it because that half hearted apology is way too little, way too late.

I realized something tonight while reading for my Planning for Multiple Publics class...I want to join the NAACP. Yes, you heard me, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. I have a very innappropriate feeling towards racism in our society. It is my belief that black "ghettos", racial profiling, unemployment and poverty are all problems can be resolved by blacks, and blacks alone. How did upper-class white society force blacks to create gangs, smoke crack and buy guns? I understand that there is racism in our society that has created housing projects and kept poverty-stricken blacks out of middle-class suburbs but who really created the violent african american stereotype? Not all blacks are violent drug users. There are plenty of well-to-do african americans that have gotten educations and are productive members of society; what happened to the rest? It has been 140 years since the Civil War that freed the slaves and another 40 years since the beginning of the Civil Rights movement, how long does it take to get your shit together? Prejudice and racism has existed for the extent of human history. There is not one culture or race that has not served as slaves for another race or culture. The Jews, the Anglo-Saxons, Koreans...the list goes on. Slavery, while dispicable and innappropriate, is part of everyone's history. I do not believe that "reparations" should be made.
Now, back to the NAACP. I, like them, believe that rap artists are detrimental to the advancement of african americans in our society. Forty years of civil rights movements, from Martin Luther King to Rosa Parks to WEB Du Bois have been all but erased by the likes of 50 Cent, Nelly, Lil Kim and Snoop. Songs about rape, guns, drugs and the like create a new stereotype of blacks. But is it a stereotype? Or is it grounded in the fact of what they are rapping about? Not all rap is like this. Many young blacks see it as the only way out of the ghetto. It is their escape from the pain and hunger they experience and they use their new-found fame and fortune to move out of the ghetto then also remove their family and friends from the same social pains. Yet there remain the few that blow away their fortune on custom Escalades and other exotic cars. What is the reasoning behind this? Are we supposed to feel sorry for them for their having grown up in the ghetto?
Now for you Poly students...for those of you fortunate enough to be white middle-class, or 75% of the school population, I hope you read Tylor Middlestadt's letter to the editor (mustang daily, may 7.) In this letter, Tylor blames whites for being white. That because of our color of skin we are automatically given advantages over minority races. As if I chose to be white, Tylor. This feature was given to me by my parents, it is nothing that I chose. Now, I am not saying that I do not benefit from this fact or that I want to give it up...but I should not be hated against or looked down upon because I am white. I have never participated in racism, hell, I just said that I am going to join the NAACP. Ugh...I'm sick of this. Deal with it folks.....send your hate mail to firstname.lastname@example.org

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Iraq has executed some prisoners of war in what the Pentagon's No. 2 general described Wednesday as one of many "disgusting" war crimes committed by forces loyal to Saddam Hussein. "They have executed prisoners of war," said Gen. Peter Pace, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, in an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live." Pace did not elaborate. Earlier in the day, Pentagon sources told CNN they were looking into a report that Iraqi soldiers shot dead seven U.S. Army soldiers as they were surrendering with their hands up Sunday. Iraqi television showed video of five U.S. soldiers in custody after their capture Sunday and the bodies of at least five other soldiers who had bullet wounds to their foreheads. Iraq has since taken two U.S. Apache helicopter pilots captive and shown video of them. To the families of the prisoners of war, Pace said the U.S. military is doing "everything we can to locate and free their sons and their daughters." "I don't know what to say to them that could help ease their pain. I can't imagine what they're going through," he said of the families. "We all hope and pray that this war can end quickly so that we can repatriate POWs."
General: Iraqis hang woman for waving to coalition troops. The Marine general said that what has surprised him most about the first week of fighting is the extent of war crimes carried out by the Iraqi regime. In addition to the execution of POWs, he said, Iraqis have used civilians as human shields, stored weapons in schools, set up command posts in hospitals and pretended to surrender only to open fire. In one case, an Iraqi woman was hanged after she waved to coalition forces, Pace said. "I've never seen anything like this," he said. "To do it so blatantly so early, not only is it a surprise, but to me it's disgusting." Earlier, the International Committee of the Red Cross said its teams in Baghdad and Kuwait are negotiating over access to Iraqi and U.S. prisoners of war. But to date, their teams have not had contact with the prisoners. Pace said coalition forces have captured more than 4,000 Iraqi soldiers. (Full story)
The seven known U.S. prisoners of war are:
• U.S. Army Spec. Joseph Hudson, 24, of the 507th Maintenance Company. He and four others were taken prisoner Sunday after their convoy was ambushed by Iraqi forces in southern Iraq.
• U.S. Army Pfc. Patrick Miller, 23, of the 507th Maintenance Company.
• U.S. Army Spec. Shoshana Johnson, 30, of the 507th Maintenance Company.
• U.S. Army Spec. Edgar Hernandez, 21, of the 507th Maintenance Company.
• U.S. Sgt. James Riley, 31, of the 507th Maintenance Company.
• U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer David S. Williams, 30, of Florida.
• U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer Ronald D. Young, 26, of Georgia.
Williams and Young were both in an Apache helicopter when it went down Monday near Karbala, about 60 miles southwest of Baghdad. The Pentagon has said a search-and-rescue operation was launched immediately after their helicopter was lost, but it had to be called off due to heavy Iraqi fire in the area.

CALGARY, Alberta -- Edmonton Oilers coach Craig MacTavish ripped out the tongue of Calgary Flames mascot Harvey the Hound after the 6-foot-6 dog repeatedly taunted him at the bench. With the Flames leading 4-0 early in the third period, Harvey -- a 200-pound white dog with a foot-long red tongue -- began mocking MacTavish during a timeout. When play resumed, Harvey moved behind the bench and continued to razz the Oilers. At another stoppage, Harvey leaned over the glass behind the bench which prompted MacTavish to grab the tongue, rip it out and throw it into the crowd. Undeterred, Harvey kept leaning over the glass. MacTavish reached for a hockey stick but was calmed by Oilers trainer Ken Lowe. Several Oilers players squirted Harvey with water bottles before security moved the mascot away. ''(Harvey) was in a place he shouldn't have been,'' Flames spokesman Peter Hanlon said.
Oh those wacky Canadians. Never know what they're going to do next.

OK, so the movie "National Security" comes out today and I've got some major beef with not only this movie, but movies in general lately that I need to get off my chest. That beef stems from one thing: black jokes. Now I'm not talking about the kind that guy you know who's kind of out of touch tells and precedes with "I'm not racist, but..." I'm talking about black jokes told by black actors to entertain white audiences who feel okay laughing at black people when other black people tell the joke. And you'll notice that the joke doesn't even have to be funny for white people to laugh at it. The other day, when watching one commercial for "National Security," I counted four separate black jokes like "Oh no, even the light is white!" in one thirty second commercial. That's a capitalization on white guilt every 7.5 seconds! Anyway, you get the point.
Also, in today's stupid news:
Kangaroo Jack opens at #1 at the box office this weekend.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE????
...im just wondering what it is that makes the entertainment industry in this country so freakin' STUPID? Actually, its the population that is retarded. I bet there was some kind of subliminal "you must go see this" message in the previews for the movie. Who knows, people. This stuff goes on every day everywhere. We can't escape it. Now, for those non-believers of TV brainwashing, consider this: You all know those stupid infomercials pitching some brand-new top-of-the-line household product that everybody just HAS to have because of the gains in free time they will get insted of, oh say, cleaning the kitchen. Now, it appears as though a wet cloth on the end of a long stick will do the entire job inside a thirty second time frame, as portrayed in the commercial. That might be minor, but also pay close attention to those infomercials that have a very FUZZY background of white light. It appears as though all the light in the room is perfect, and there's usually some really nice outdoor motif outside an open widow somewhere in the shot frame. The white light makes us see the room as alluring, it draws us in. And for what better purpose than to get us to focus on the product and how we can't possibly live without it. Also, these companies advertise them as being sold in "just SEVEN easy payments of ONLY 29.95" or someother sceme to make it sound like the product is cheaper than it really is. Now compound those payments together and you will come up with a sum NO LESS than 70 bucks for anyproduct pitched in this manner. Then take notice at the shipping charge. From five to twenty bucks just to get this piece of crap to you. And guess what happens when it finally comes. You gotta put the damned thing together with instructions written in some foreign language, commonly where it was assembled, then translated to english by some halfwit with a very limited english vocabulary. Then, if youre lucky enough to get the thing working, I GUARANTEE it won't last more than a month in your house, whatever type of job it was designed to do. ITS A SHAM, people!!
now i hope you all learned an important lesson.
PUT AN AXE thru your TV and read a book. The things it will do for you. ANd, never believe anything youre told. EVER. especially on TV. :) good day
