Ted is Dead (UPDATED)

The story.


They say not to speak ill of the dead, so I’ll just have to enjoy this next beer in silence.


UPDATE for BingBing and others who may not know the background, I give you this marvelous retrospective by Carl Cannon.

“It was just a car accident, really, albeit one involving alcohol, excessive speed, and the late-night machinations of a married man partying with an unmarried woman…

There’s no way to know for sure, but the accident at Dike Bridge on Chappaquiddick Island on July 18, 1969 probably cost Edward M. Kennedy the presidency. It certainly cost Mary Jo Kopechne her life…

Here is what is known:

On July 18, 1969, Kennedy and five other men – all but one of whom was married – met six single young women who had worked on Robert Kennedy’s 1968 campaign. The women were known as the “Boiler Room Girls” for their tireless work in a windowless office in that ill-fated campaign. All of them, especially Teddy, had grieved hard when Bobby had been killed 15 months earlier…

Sometime late at night after an evening of drinking, Kennedy and Kopechne went for a drive in his 1967 Oldsmobile…

In any event, Kennedy wasn’t headed toward the ferry landing when his car careened off Dike Bridge and into the inlet known as Poucha Pond; they were heading toward the beach (to fuck – Beef)

Kennedy got out of the car alive, Mary Jo Kopechne did not. He said he dived down several times to try and rescue her, before walking back to the cottage where his friends were staying. To do so, he passed at least four houses with working telephones, including one 150 yards from the accident with a porch light on – as well as a firehouse with a pay phone. When he got to the cottage, none of the women were told what happened. According to the 763-page coroner’s inquest, this was just the first of a series of appalling decisions Kennedy made that night, decisions that stretch credulity…

Upon reaching Edgartown, Kennedy went to his room at a local inn – it was now 2:25 a.m., — where he spent the night, and the following morning engaged in small talk about sailing with a local yachter and agreed to have breakfast with the man when Gargan and Markham showed up about 7:30. They asked him who he’d called about the accident only to receive the astounding reply: no one. Kennedy explained it this way at the inquest: “I just couldn’t gain the strength within me, the moral strength, to call Mrs. Kopechne at 2 in the morning and tell her that her daughter was dead.” But he hadn’t called the cops, either, and wouldn’t until 9 a.m.

Not reporting a fatal traffic accident is a felony in most places. On Martha’s Vineyard, if the driver is a Kennedy, it’s not even a matter of official curiosity: The local police chief never even asked Kennedy why he waited nine hours to report what had happened. The state of Massachusetts, citing Kennedy’s excessive speed on the bridge, suspended his license for six months. That was it.”

That was it. A six month driver’s license suspension for allowing a young woman to die needlessly, failing to report the accident in a timely manner, and everything else that was illegal and immoral in that litany of wrongs that night.

Ted Kennedy was a scum sucking maggot-out-of-hell shyster politician, and now he’s dead. I, for one, am glad he’s dead, and hope he suffers all of the torments of hell.

He never came clean.

Oh dear the health nazis are at it again, not happy with criminalising smokers and raising the price of pre mixed drinks 70%, they are onto a new atrocity.


Killer sandwich: ham linked to cancer

They might seem a harmless lunchtime filler but ham, salami and devon are on the World Cancer Research Fund’s hit list.

Death by sandwich..

Death by sandwich..

Ok here’s the word for you concerned scum. Piss off and leave me alone, I don’t respect you and strongly believe you are out of control busybodies who are flat out providing cover for the government to raise taxes on “sins”. I am currently grumpy enough, deprive me on my morning bacon and it may just be enough to tip me over the edge…

Oh and just how huge is this organisation that have generated worldwide headlines with a non-story?

11-50 people

The charity’s Lisa Cooney says it is recommending parents do not give their children more than 70 grams of processed meat a week.

That is the equivalent of two ham sandwiches, or three thin rashers of bacon.

“There’s convincing scientific evidence linking the consumption of processed meats like ham, salami and bacon to an increase in bowel cancer risk,” Ms Cooney said.

“And we also know that the habits we develop during childhood can follow us through to adulthood. So parents have a really wonderful opportunity to help promote really healthy habits in their children.”


First cab off the rank “Think of the chiiiillldren!!!”, piss off and choke on a dick you harridan, you either have a SOLID mass of evidence or you have speculation and rubbery figures.

Ouch! Benjamin Zycher: “Michelle Obama… is an Intellectual Lightweight.”

Michelle Obama, Princeton Graduate

Michelle Obama, Princeton Graduate

Here’s something that made me projectile-laugh hot coffee through my nose:

“Now, let me be blunt: Michelle Obama, the product of lifelong affirmative-action coddling, is an intellectual lightweight who fancies herself a serious thinker. Just read her Princeton senior thesis, an intermittently coherent stream-of-consciousness pile of leftist jargon, campus pseudo-seriousness, and racial-identity babble. Can there be any doubt that the Princeton administrators accepted it only because of her skin color?”

*golf clap*

Wow. Just wow. These are things to be thought and not spoken. I wonder if Ben will be banished from The Corner for this bit of unvarnished truth?

leftard/ Clearly, Zycher is a racist neo-con. /leftard

Where’s the Beef?!

New gigs, new guitars, impending trip to Indiana, so I’ll remain scarce for a while.

I leave you with this classic thread from The People’s Cube.


I’ll be back to some semblance of normalcy by the 1st of September.

In which I fisk a Socialist scumbag…

I was dipping for my biweekly paddle into the cesspool that was green left weekly when Icame across a piece so wombat fellatingly stupid I though I should share it with the world.

The lady who wrote it is/was a Socialist alliance candidate, one of Australias most marginal parties, often having a hard time breaking 3 figures in results at elections. (which is why they consider elections bad). For an example of her commitment to democracy here is her blurb as a candidate for the last one

“Only working people, organised into mass movements in the workplace and on the streets, are powerful enough to win real social justice and ecological sustainability. Voting is not enough.”If elected to parliament, we’d use our positions to build and fund these grassroots social movements.”

Be warned, if you read below the fold, this may be you!

Be warned, if you read below the fold, this may be you!


In a parody not to be made up she helped run a conference of socialist scumbags in Australia last year. And held it here, Sydney Girls High School, an exclusive girls school. Irony is wonderful…


Anyway enough of that, what is under the fold is her article from GLW, suitably filleted for your enjoyment. Be warned a swearbolgging alert is issued for this post…

The cost of something simple

Years ago here in Australia we had a politician lose an election based on one TV interview. The bloke was John Hewson, and the question was stunning in in simplicity, and utterly devastating to Mr Hewson.

Heres a link to a Wiki on the interview, see if you can find a youtube of the event, its well worth watching.

Here’s the nub of my post, why hasn’t any party, anywhere on earth (that Im aware of) been asked the following question.

Its a simple question, why hasnt anyone asked it?

Its a simple question, why hasnt anyone asked it?


In all seriousness, why hasn’t anyone supporting a carbon scheme been asked to put a figure on a simple grocery item? Im sure the roll on effect will prove to be quite high, and the complexity will annoy those asked.

But thats the point, if they cant explain how the price “wont be effected” (an obvious lie), or they have to add on every 1c, 1/2c, 5c, cost the item has its price raised by.

Its the question which will provoke widespread unease as the true costs become a little more solid, perhaps that’s why it hasn’t been asked.

The death of blogging?

British Library - Sporting Times 02/09/1882  p5 (The Ashes)

NEWS Corporation chairman Rupert Murdoch has given his strongest indication yet that the company’s newspapers will charge for their online content within a year.

And then this.

Mr Murdoch added that that if News Corp were successful with plans to charge for online journalism, “we will be followed by other media.”

How many news sites do bloggers link to? How many news sites does the average surfer visit? Imagine if we had to pay for every one of them. Let alone even if we did, how much of the said blogger’s audience would have paid for that particular newspaper’s site, too?

But yet this.

But the company believes the worst is over, predicting its adjusted operating profit for the 2009/10 financial year will increase by a “high single-digit” percentage.

And this.

The publisher of The Wall Street Journal, The Australian and Dow Jones Newswires posted a loss of $US203 million ($241m), or US8 cents a share, for the quarter, compared with earnings of $US1.1 billion, or US43c a share, a year ago.

So financial crisis aside, which screwed everyone, and when News Ltd was still providing a ‘free’ online news service, Rupert made 1.1 BILLION dollars… and yet he still wants to charge us! And when many of us work for free for his blogs!

I smell a rat, a rat so big Left-wing bloggers should be concerned, too.

If Murdoch wants to bury his own ‘newspapers’, fine. Actually… no, because it will bury a Golden Era where the public was no longer restricted to but a few news sources but could freely roam the globe thanks to the WWW and see this perspective up against that perspective in ways past generations could only have dreamed of.

And now Murdoch (if his business model is successful and other outlets follow suit [even though other outlets have FAILED already trying so]) wants to ruin that, which will ruin the blogosphere, and most likely, seriously hurt his business.

Mr Murdoch’s comments came as News Corp reported US$680 million in writedowns and other one-off charges largely related to the company’s social networking site, MySpace.

So get rid of MySpace. Facebook kicks its arse anyway.

But please Mr Murdoch, don’t get rid of the best thing to happen to news since the printing press was invented.

More at Bolt’s perhaps-soon-to-be-deserted palace.

His soon-to-be tomb?

If Murdoch is successful at this, other media outlets will follow suit. And that’ll be the end of blogging, both Left and Right wing.

No more discussion. No more debate. No more alternative viewpoints. The end.

Americans re-united

The two American journalists detained in North Korea since March, stepped foot on U.S. soil Wednesday, the day after they were released from custody.

Dignitaries and journalists flocked to Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, Calif., for the arrival of the plane carrying Laura Ling, 32, and Euna Lee, 36, accompanied by former President Bill Clinton, CNN reported.

And, their boss, Al Gore, was there to greet them, too… with green ‘welcome home’ signs. Thanks, Al.

CNN reckons it’s a new channel of diplomacy… even though they stress Obama was not directly involved.

You can check that stuff out on the news yourselves.

The point is this. North Korea will not change. OK, this is only my opinion… someone who has lived in South Korea for five years in total. Koreans are so difficult to deal with, let alone North Koreans.

Whilst this may be a victory for the Left (Clinton, Gore, Obama, journos for Gore’s TV channel), and Obama is right to be cautious and distance himself from this (very short press conference), it really doesn’t help relations with North Korea.

Now sure. I cried watching the reunion.

No. What this has done is strengthen Kim Jong-il’s hardline position as his health declines, as he positions his son, Kim Jong-un to take the reigns of power.

Kim Jong-il is of course prepping his best son. But he had to do the nuke tests, the missile tests, and now the long awaited Clinton visit… 9 years belated.

If he didn’t, the hawkish generals would have taken control of a weakening NK presidency. KJI needed stature, and Clinton returning two pawns was a good move… from a Kim Jing Il perspective… the personality cult must continue. KJI’s stature among ‘his’ people will be ratified. America’s position has been weakened… from a North Korean perspective.

Triple bonus. The political Left can claim success (CNN mentioned it was almost as if eight years had been erased), and Al Gore can get on TV and plug his channel, all whilst, within minutes, the new eco-religion can kick in with green banners and Laura stating she felt the love from all her supporters being channelled to her in NK. Now, mind you, she was granted access to her family during the ordeal. But just how could she have felt the love from everyone else? A Vibe?

In other words, this has weakened the West.

Anyway, NK were never gonna keep them. It has been one big stunt to raise KJI’s stature both internally and abroad and to give the Left a boost… who’da thunk? FFS sake, they kept them fed (not always an easy task in NK) and had them in a guest house.

Obama can call two-track diplomacy as much as he likes but it plainly isn’t. Not with one ex Democrat president (husband of the SOS), one ex Democrat vice president and the current president involved. I don’t care how white you paint the jet. And the West’s position has been yet again weakened.

In one sense, thanks. You freed those journos. But at what cost?

At least someone's happy. Someone else looks like he got PWND.

At least someone's happy. Someone else looks like he got PWND.

So whilst the mum meeting her daughter for the first time in ages brought tears to my eyes, no other part of this stunt did.

I’m angrier at the North Koreans, though. Pardon my French, but they’re cunts.

Still, at least a relative status quo has been maintained. There really is no other ‘solution’ at the moment.

However, this has been an absolute success for North Korea. There’s little doubt they won’t do it again… all the while whilst expanding their nuke program, whilst stalling any six-party talks.

This latest stunt will affect any sanctions, too.

Cue the stories of OMG, this is so wonderful from the MSM.


John Bolton agrees. He’s been to Korea a bit. He’d know. And as for anyone who hasn’t dealt extensively with Korea?

Hmm… well.

Drink more Coke!

This is the label from a 500ml bottle of Coke. Note the little green bit. It’s states that the bottle contains 168 grams of CO2. Excellent!  It’s time to go back to that old Coke-a-day habit!



In other warmy news, 67 German scientists have written to the German big cheese about this man-made climate change nonsense.

Quick math check: Percentage of atmospheric CO2 = 0.04%. Percentage of man made CO2=5% of that. Percentage of atmosphere made up of man-made CO2=0.002%. Two thousandths of one percent.



Or as a blogger, roslav, put it on George Monboit’s blog a while back…

The concentration of the CO2 in the atmosphere has increased from 280ppm (pre-industrial world) to 387ppm (now). Right? In other words, particles other than the CO2 made up 99.972% of the atmosphere then, and 99.9613% now. Right?

Am I to believe that this infinitesimal change in the level of CO2 will raise sea levels six meters, kill polar bears, and turn Britain into a desert? And what about pigs? Will they fly?

Note. Yes, there is dispute on how much CO2 is man-made but the numbers are so small anyway, it’s moot. Even if man-made C02 were 50% rather than 5%, that would still only bring up man-made CO2’s contribution to the atmosphere to 0.02% as opposed to 0.002%.


How the fuck is man-made CO2 supposed to be driving climate change when even if you pumped it up to 4000 parts per million, it can absorb virtually no more heat anyway since the heat absorption is on a logarithmic scale, and is pretty much maxed-out already?


Some more number crunching. If CO2 is about 400ppm (parts per million) and we produce 5% of that, that means total human CO2 contribution to the atmosphere is 20ppm.

PS Australia contributes about 1.5% of that human CO2 total meaning Rudd will introduce a costly, ineffective, job destroying ETS all because Australia’s CO2 contribution is 0.3ppm.


I’ve missed the most obvious question. Why, when most people are worried about man-made CO2 emissions, would Coke put that little green label on their bottles and thus potentially lower sales?

President Obama as, “A Better Class of Criminal”

Obama-socialism Joker

Some brilliant pop artist has decided to speak truth to power. In LA-LA Land, no less.

I guess after 200 days, some people are starting to realize that no Skittle-Shitting Unicorn will be forthcoming.

UPDATE: Right on cue, leftards play the race card where no invocation of race exists, and say “The only thing missing is the rope.” Ah, hyperbole from the Hyper-Bowling Alley that is the leftist Cosmic Bowling League. At some point, someone shined a laser on their disco ball and blinded the lot of them… you can’t prove it was me.

Besides, Chimpy McBush-Halliburton was Joker-ized first.


Was the rope missing there too? Thanks to Sonny Bunch.

UPDATE 2: Another SFLT says it’s “mean spirited and dangerous.”

“Los Angeles Urban Policy Roundtable President Earl Ofari Hutchinson is calling the depiction, politically mean spirited and dangerous.

Hutchinson is challenging the group or individual that put up the poster to have the courage and decency to publicly identify themselves.”

“Urban Policy Roundtable President”… LOL! And he uses his middle name… because it’s different, I suppose. What a steaming pile of excrement.

UPDATE 3: The actual origin of the image seems to be this Flickr user.

Hat Tip to Anthony Dick.

Newsbusters has more.

UPDATE 4: Of course, now we eeeeevil capitalists have turned the O’Joker into t-shirt swag. And why not? What better way to fight socialism than with capitalism? Works every time it’s tried.


LOL! Thanks to those filthy little Sand People.

Orwell was a warning, not an instruction manual.

The sheer horror I felt at reading this news article surprised me. Yet half way through it I could literally feel my skin crawling and scalp tightening in revulsion. There have been few real life things which have filled me with revulsion as visceral as this “nice” article.


It seems harmless enough, another initiative to “save the chiiiildren”, but its state control overtures must be resisted by all right thinking people, whatever their political leanings.

Barack Obamas an illegal alien, proof

OK I haven’t got long to type this before “the man” shuts me down. But under the fold is real, incontrovertible proof that Barack Obama is an illegal alien sent to infiltrate the American government at the highest level.

Never mind the birth certificate, that’s a decoy, this picture blows everything else out of the water.

JetLev: A Jet Ski that Lets You Fly

Tell me this doesn’t look like some serious fun. Story about it here.

To make it light enough to work, the water supply has to be a lake, river, sea or ocean you’re on, and the engine and compressor have to be towed behind and below in a service boat, but it’s just as well, because I imagine the learning curve would be painful, if not fatal, over land.

Before you add it to your Christmas Wish List, keep in mind that the initial production model will be $130,000.00 US. Unless you’re dating Paris Hilton – or have been a very, very good boy or girl – that might be a bit steep. I imagine as the tech matures, the price will plummet. No reason it should cost much more than a regular Jet Ski within a few years.

Yes, I want one. We have several large reservoirs near here. It is so me.

Hat Tip to Glenn Reynolds.

Irony, the stuff greenies hate.

Price rise for ‘green’ power is under fire

My local paper has another story of greenies meeting reality today, and they dont like it.


Environmentalists are angry at a move by Synergy to lift “green” power prices about 35 per cent from today.

Ah hippie tears, falling like rain onto the parched earth.


We lucky people here in WA just copped a huge slug (23%) of energy price rise in the last month or so, so this comes on top of that. Beautiful.


the playbook.

the playbook.
