Wonder how many of you heard this story today. It appears that a "cartoon" has sickened hundreds of Japanese children. I heard it on the news today and my ever resourceful brother has sent me a link to the story, here it is go see for yourself.
Now for the latest Iraq bullcrap. Seems Saddam has about 43 "Presidential Palaces" or whatever that they "Iraq" considers "soveriegn". Well, the "CEASES FIRE AGREEMENT" that ended the war before we and the Coalition got to Baghdad and Saddam and is explicit in the UN Resolutions REQUIRES the free reign of the UN Inspection teams searching out illegal and mass destruction weapons. Saddam and Iraq has already violated the CEASE FIRE AGREEMENT. Violation of a cease fire agreement means the war can resume. We (The U.S.A.) announced this week that the ENTIRE MILITARY FORCE will be vaccinated against ANTHRAX. THE #1 on the list of reasons for this was Iraq's threat of use of these weapons, though they then claim they don't have them.
Well I see a buildup of our forces around Iraq, seems to me that it would be best to say fine, and then launch at least 43 Cruise Missles to these "43 Palaces" that the UN is not allowed to inspect, probably more will be needed, and a cleanup detail of strikes by our F-117A's (Steath Fighters)
Since we are there, let's end this idiotic "Dance with a Devil".
Hmmm....Looks like the story I heard on the military on getting ANTHRAX recieving vaccinations appears to be true. I WANT TO BE VACCINATED ALSO!!!
Heard this morning 2 reports of a comet or large meteorite causing a blast equivalent of a 50 megaton bomb in Greenland last week that was also recorded by seisemographs all over the world, scientists heading to the scene to recover the "object". Shouldn't we have heard about this last week? And why is this story being played out at such a low "media Level"? The news conf that Slick Willy is calling today to announce the name of Slick and Hillary's new child, er, I mean dog, has gotten much more publicity.
Now to our beloved "Postal" Office. I went this morning immediatly after work to mail out a couple packages. Now the post office knows this is the busiest time of year for mailings. Then why the HELL only 2 of 6 "WINDOWS / STALLS" were occupied by employees of the US POST OFFICE!!!???? If these "windows / stalls" were built to be used, then isn't this the time to use them???? This was at 9:30am I counted, there were 43 people ahead of me when I got there. I arrived at 9:24am and left at 10:18 there goes an hour of my time, if they never planned on using these extra windows, why build them???? Is the thinking "I got 400 sq ft to live in my apt." I want to shit in everycorner so I need 4 bathrooms"???? Got a better Reason???!!!
Just heard on the news this morning that the Defense Dept. is reccomending the vaccination of ALL military personnel against ANTHRAX because of the threat of biological weapons in Iraq and elsewhere. I wonder what they "the Gov't" is not telling "us civillians".
How many of you are getting tired of the loser of the day / week etc. portrayed in your local newspaper or TV News, wanting $ to help them out, when in fact the "dire straights" they are in is from their own stupidity? Why should we reward failure / lack of planning or lack of basic common sense? If they have kids, lets remove them from the parents and teach the children responsibilty and self suffientcy before they learn how to accept handouts of food and shelter. The children are innocent and we as a society need to help them. But for us to pay for these children to stay with their dysfunctional parent(s) is not only wrong but condemns these children to follow in their parents ways, thus continuing perpetual assistance from us.
Unless we start with tough love and save the children, and since the parent(s) are already unsaveable, we will see another generation of "Will Work For Food" transients instesd of productive members of society.

The Kyoto Global Warming Conf. Agreement BS. Are you prepared to cut your use of energy by 30%!!!????
That's is what it would take for us to get to 8% lower than this country's emmisions of "greenhouse gasses" in 1990. Remember the oil embargo in the early 70's? This would dwarf that by leaps and bounds. Winter have temp from heating unit set 66 - 68, be a hot office if this treaty is ratified, desert ie AZ in summer set air cond unit to 90, will be a cool office.
Unemployment? due to downsizing of manufacturing industry to meet this goal, expect a 25% reduction ie layoffs raising the unemploymet rate to above 10%. Added usage tax on gas and added tax levy to any vehical over 4 cylinders.
However if you are in a developing or 3rd world country, no limits at all on emmisions, and no requirement for scrubbers on smokestacks, catalytic convertors, no nonburn days, no requirement for clean fireplaces, no requirement for cleanup of toxic sites, sewage treatment, etc. etc. etc.
Contact your U.S. Senator to VOTE NO on this "Treaty From Hell", where by most thinking, there is "warming". Even though Global warming is still unproven, seems to me we had a cooler summer than normal here in AZ and are still below "normal Temps" lately. My 6am Smoke breaks at work have been DAMN Chilly the past couple nights.
El Nino is getting smaller!!! (that ultra warm section of the Pacific that is supposed to cause great disasters this winter).The "Global Warming" has caused El Nino to cool down along with the Temps in the west. Also "Global Warming" has caused early snowfalls across the country. "Global Warming" according to Al Gore, our VP to say, and it is documented, we need more abortions to help stop "Global Warming". Al Gore used over 6,000 gallons of jet fuel to go to Japan to the "Global Warming Conf." And will need just as much to get back. I say leave the idiot in Japan and too bad Slick Willy wasn't with him.
Another thing, in the news yesterday, either England has, or is about to, ban the sale of BEEF on BONE, because of Mad Cow Disease, forget about getting a T- Bone Steak.
Slick Willy has gotten a dog, What happen to the baby they wanted to adopt!!!??? Maybe it is because they have an unfit household / family unit? I think "adopting a dog" is much easier than a child. But the news media has made it a point that Slick Willy now has a 1st dog.......If it is to be a "lap dog" he should name it Jan-(et Reno). There, I feel better.
12/07/97 Keeping it light today, just got home from the AZ Cardinals / Wash. Redskins football game, Cards lost 38 - 28.
All I can say is, yes this year is in the toilet, But, and it is a big but, Looks like we (Cards) have a hell of a quarterback now. Jake "The Snake" Plummer. Lokks like the Cards will no longer bring in has been or discarded quarterbacks. The Cards have a great one in the making, and is revered here in AZ, since he played for ASU and almost won the "Championship" of college football in the Rose Bowl, and was in the final running for the Heisman Trophy last year. Being a season ticket holder for the Cards the past 8 yrs. I can tell you he has a "Special" majic on the field even as a rookie (Threw 4 TD passes today). Plus he learns and gets better with every game. We are 3 - 11 now , but next year we may be 11 - 3. Look Out NFC East!!! I am very glad the Cards are giving Plummer the game exp. It will reap great rewards in the near future, possibly as soon as next season.
OK sorry for the self indulgent splurge the past 2 days, doing better now.
Local talk radio did a "what kind of handgun are you getting for your loved ones this Christmas. Well here in Az lots of handguns!!! And I could'nt be happier about it. Since Az allowed "Concealed Carry Permits" 2 yrs ago, not 1, NOT 1 person who has recieved a Permit has committed any crime involving the use of guns, let alone handguns. So far there are over 53,000 people in Az who have "Concealed Carry Permits", plus we are an open carry state where anyone not convicted of a felony can carry in the open a firearm legally. My guess is the criminals are not so daring anymore, since they do not know who may have a gun on them.
Carjacking Smoker Dave will be unsuccessful, and many others in Az will have the same result. Sarah Brady and the Brady Bills are whacko thinking. If the lawless criminals know we are unarmed we will be victims if we are law abiding citizens.(And you know that criminals will always have access to guns) If they know that a large proportion of the citizenry may be armed, they the "criminals" are less likely to attack individuals. Criminals go for easy "hits", They don't want any complications during the crime, a gun to them means either jail or prison or death.
However your Federal Gov't will just be happy with your unfortunate death to propell this anti gun rhetoric, not the fact that you could have defended yourself.
12/04/97 You know, some days just "suck" overall. Started the graveyard shift and thought I took out testing materials and actually did'nt, thought I was losing my mind then. OK so I plunder ahead, and eguipment problems raise "their" ugly head. OK get equipment problems rectified, 3 hrs behind schedule, but recoverable. THEN MORE EQUIPMENT PROBLEMS with the same testing instrument, and at the same time more than normal QC failures on other tests. Then the vendor for the malfunctioning piece of equipment wasted an hr of our time on the phone to try to get out of a service call. I left after 11 hrs at work mumbling to myself.
Then I go on an extended cruise to relieve the job stress. And what do I hear on the news!!!??? Phoenix is one of 11 cities in the running to host the Flaming Liberal Convention, I mean Democratic National Convention in 2000. Will the onslaught never end today? "I ask myself".
I finally get home wondering what to eat, have flyer hanging on the door from Dommino's Pizza, good enough I think. So I call to place an order, get cut off once, then get the pizza guy, give him my order, then he tells me it would be at least an HOUR AND 1/2 for delivery. I said "WHAT!!!" now I know they don't guarranty 1/2hr. delivery anymore because of safety reasons etc. but did not know they now employ snowbirds who drive 20 mph in a 50. The Dommino's I order from is less than 2 mi. away for crying out loud!!! And since it was 12:30pm When I tried to order, it meant no delivery untill after 2pm. Said forget it since I hope to be asleep before then.
Smoker Dave pissed off and hungry. How was your day? Hopefully better than mine. Let's see what's in the freezer, hmmm Salisbury beef stuff TV Dinner, yum yum. Yeah RIGHT!!!
In the mood I'm in right now here is the best "empty" ending I can give ya, be thankfull you are not in Smoker's apt today, or you could end up insulted to the n'th degree(co-workers during this past night not included), But some dayshift people I plead the 5th.
Media Alert - DATELINE 12/03/97 11:10 am
Art Bell is sick and cancelled appearence on 910 KFYI AM in Phoenix, Az because of illness and need for more sleep. Art has big show tonight w/ Father Malachi Martin, that should go on as scheduled. Art's appearence on KFYI will be rescheduled ASAP. Stay tuned for scheduled appearence updates......DAMNIT!!!! I had a line at 10:59am to talk to Art!!! A cold beer open and a ===================~~~~~ lit. I'll try again when it's rescheduled. Shit!, Goddamn Hell!!, FUCK!!! I was all set!!!!
The above I listed on the site by 11:25 am. Now I need to give a daily comment, that I had hoped would be a synopsis on my appearence w/ Art.....Get Well Soon.
Going into this a bit unprepared, but here it goes.....
Janet Reno, who pleaded to keep her "appointment" as Attourney General when Slick Willy was reelected has continued to be a forminable "firewall" in the internet sense in not appointing a special prosecutor to Al Gore or Slick Willy on Illegal fundraising activities. I believe she (Reno) made a deal w/ the White House to be a "firewall" to keep the job she so wanted to keep. "I find NO credible evidence...."Well now even some democrats have seen the parralell to WaterGate in '72. History repeats itself to those who do not learn from history. FBI Director Louis Freeh was very vocal and public with his critisism to Reno on the non-appointment of a special prosecutor on these on going allegations. White House and Justice Dept are "pissed". Now remember Reno and Freeh were to come to a joint agreement on the decision of a assigned special prosecutor to these allegations for or against . Well Reno and the FBI Director are 180% apart, and Reno may "fire" the FBI Director over this. This is mirroring WaterGate '72 step for step, which ended up in Nixon resigning from the Presidentcy in '74.
Here is an anology on the fly so to speak, being unprepared. Globally - US / Vietnam = Soviet Union / Afghanistan. Nationally - Republicans / (WaterGate) = Democrats / (CurrentGate).
Just in case you need to know, I am a registered Independant, and plan to stay that way. If you disagree with me, fine. you're entitled, email me if you feel strongly enough and if appropriate, I will post "clean" disagreements on this site.
I support freedom of speech and the use of "some" crass language, if it is appropriate, in my opinion, I will censor to my own pleasing, since this is my web site. If you don't like it, don't come back.
MEDIA ALERT!!! MEDIA ALERT!!!
Art Bell will be a guest on The Nearly Famous Barry Young Show (Same show "Smoker Dave" was made incarnate from simply "Dave in Mesa")in Phoenix, AZ 910 KFYI AM that runs 9AM to NOON MST. Art scheduled for 11 AM 'till NOON. Yours truly if I get out of work on time will do my best to call into the show.
OK now on to other things...
The FDA will now allow irradiation of beef (gamma rays) to kill bacteria inluding E. Coli etc. It is about DAMN time, this form of treating foodstuffs has been proven safe and has been available for many years. Poultry and fish already get treated by irradiation.
The irradiation of products in no way changes the beef or whatever and does not expose people to extra radiation. Few people know that blood derived products for transfusion to the immuno suppressed (the sickest people) are routinely irradiated with Cessium to kill or prevent the reproduction of the white blood cells, to prevent a deadly complication commonly called "Graft VS Host" Disease. However the anti-nukes have been successful in confusing the mainstream public that the treated food is somehow RADIOACTIVE which it is MOST CERTAINLY NOT. My guess is the anti-nukes and aninmal rights people have been in league in this deception, making beef etc. vulnerable to highly publicized infections from bacteria that could be easily killed by this form of food preservation. Scare the public with deaths of children etc. in the hopes that fearful parents etc. will abandon beef etc. as a food source.
12/01/97 Just got back from an enjoyable cruise in the rain in which I helped contribute to Global Warming, or is it the coming Ice Age?
Big hoopla with the Global Warming Conference in Koyoto, Japan. (Funny I thought Koyoto(Bowl)was a Japanesse fast food Rice and Chicken place here in AZ)
Let's see, in the '60's we were on the verge of a new "ICE AGE", in the '70's we had "THE OIL CRISIS", only enough oil to last 15 to 20 years(wonder where this oil is coming from?).'80's "GLOBAL WARMING" raised it's ugly head. But has been delayed because of volcanic activity ie Mt St Helens and the volcano in the Phillipeans(sp). Now what the Environmentalists won't tell you is that volcanism puts out more "GREENHOUSE GASES" than our "HUMAN" activity ever could.
What this conference is all about is the redistribution of wealth from industrail countries to the 3rd "underdeveloped" world.
This will be done in the form of some type of "ENERGY CREDITS, dished out by some UN Commision" which the industrial countries won't have enough and the 3rd world countries too many. We would have to buy credits from these countries at whatever price they set, which will cost you and I $$$$ and do zilch in reducing output of greenhouse gases, which these wacko's purport to be advocating.
Wait another 10 yrs or so and the coming ice age will be back in the news.
I suppose you heard the 14 yr old student opening fire on a group of students meeting for prayer in KY.
