I don't mind the fact I have to handle your hairy leg and nasty foot several times to get you positioned for your x-ray; I've dealt with infants and drunk strippers before, so you're inability to hold still for more than three seconds, even though you're sober, doesn't bother me that much.
I can even put up with that wierd-ass little giggle thing you've got going on, and the fact that you have a personality that would a better fit for a sixteen year-old girl than a Sergeant in his twenties.
But I swear to God, if I have to listen you say "wheeeeeeeeee!" in perfect pitch for a little girl everytime I handle your damn leg, the next time you show up in the clinic I'm going to "accidently" drop an armload of x-ray cassettes right on your crotch.

Two people were arrested Monday afternoon after an altercation led to five Republican campaign workers being sprayed with Mace at their headquarters in Galax.
That'll show those damn geriatric fascists holding down the proletariat!
Just a little demonstration of Social Justice from our friends on the Left.
H/T to the A-I Rottweiler.

"As a lifelong Caucasian, I am beginning to think the time has finally come
to take the right to vote away from white people, at least until we come to our
senses. Seriously, I just don't think we can be trusted to exercise it
-Jonathan Valania, editor in chief of the blog Phawker.com
As a life-long Caucasian, I'm utterly unshocked by this. Because while I really don't give a damn about color, but am quite concerned with culture and values, I've noticed the Left seems to be obsessed with color. More so now than ever. However, using this argument seems to fly above your heads, so let me put it in terms even the patchouli-reeking hippy or ideologically lobotomized leftist can understand.
You Are a Fuckwit.
Please cease and desist referring to yourself as a Caucasian, as you are making everyone else laugh at us. Perhaps you could use a more.....progressive term, such as melanin disadvantaged oppression archetype entity. Caucasian is just so...rednecky for a man of your advanced social consciousness.

Powell, once viewed as a strong contender to become the first black presidential nominee, said that while he deeply respects McCain, Obama "is a transformational figure" who is right for the times to restore America's credibility around the world(Military.com)
So what is "Transformational Leadership"?
Developed initially for political leaders by James McGregor Burns in the late 1970s, it was eagerly adopted for business leadership. It has four components: Charisma or idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation and individualized consideration. Being charismatic is like having sex appeal. It's having a dynamic, energetic and commanding presence. We idealize such people. (Transformational Leadership in Business Management)
Note in this definition, the complete absence of the words "morality", "ethics", and "competence". Let's look at a few other leaders who fit the definition of transformational leaders:
Kim Il Sung
I shouldn't even have to label this one.
Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini
Change your affiliation, Colin. You're dead to me.

"If we don't wake up as a nation with a new kind of leadership...for how we want this country to work, then we won't get universal health care," she said.
"The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more."
—Michelle Obama, The Charlotte Observer
Fast forward to Friday, October 17, 2008:
While he was at a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Michelle Obama called room service and ordered lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar and champagne, a tipster told Page Six.
I don't have a problem with someone who's wealthy enjoying the finer things in life. But I do when they're talking about "spreading success around" by planning to take my money to do it. You want to make things better? Give up some of that $350,000 you make every year (like say, $300,000 of it) and donate directly to the homeless. If it's good enough for me, it oughta be good enough for you.

1) In uniform when asked, so shouldn't have said anything in the first place;
2) Pretty sure you would stroke out if I said it out loud.

Received in my work e-mail yesterday:
Subject: Crazy exotic coffee
Lady and Gents,
As you have all probably learned by now, we at Anonymous Medical Company take our coffee drinking seriously, more seriously perhaps than even our work and family. We believe that a fine fresh, daily cup of French-Pressed coffee is not a luxury but a natural right. We strive always to brew the finest, freshest pot possible. But, my friends, the time has come to step it up a notch.
On the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Bali there lives a strange monkey/cat-like creature called a civet. In addition to being the primary source of scent for Chanel no. 5, it too is a consumer and producer of coffee. When the civet eats and digests the coffee berry the byproduct, called Kopi Luwak, is nature’s most perfect (and most expensive) coffee bean. I say that we, here in the Sinai, deserve the world’s finest coffee. That is why I have contacted you all.
In the next week or so, we in the Anonymous Medical Company orderly room, the fountainhead of all that is right with caffeine consumption on this desolate peninsula, plan to order some Kopi Luwak. So, if you are interested contributing to the Kopi Luwak fund, please let me know. Because after all, don’t you deserve it?
SGT Coffee Guy
Anonymous Medical Company
PS: In case I danced around the point a little too much the coffee berry is eaten by and then crapped out by the civet. But, and butts are important when discussing poop-coffee, the beans have been cleaned and roasted so its not like we’re drinking straight-up poop here.
I like coffee; no, I love coffee. But (ew) I'm not touching this stuff.
Time to get the ambulance from it's low-probability area of being stolen. Not seen, giant iron gate behind me as I take the picture, and big ol' security lock on the ambulance's tire. Israeli car thieves, #1 in the world. According to the Israeli cops.
The other reason the ambulance is unmolested. Rotting garbage directly behind it.
Israeli monuments. Power to the Workers!.....or something like that, I guess. Maybe there's a CAT dealership somewhere nearby.
I just kept driving. No need to stop here.

Entire paragraphs of writing ( I use the term loosely) in capital letters. Rampant spelling errors. Insulting nicknames, finger-pointing, and regurgitated campaign talking points. It makes me despair that people with the intelligence of a box of rocks are allowed to vote. I'm starting to long for the times when one had to be a property owner to even vote. At least it demonstrated that most of the voters where smart enough to manage that. Now anyone who can screech a sound bite and is eighteen years old or more can cast a vote for President of the nation that can pull the whole world into in economic crisis. There's a comfortable thought.
Even better, the article on the views of Egyptians regarding how we can get back in their good graces. I'm at a total loss there. I'm living here right now. I've been asked many times by Egyptians who I'm going to vote for. If you don't want to piss off every Egyptian around, DON'T SAY McCAIN, even if you explain you don't like him that much. It makes you a racist, anti-Islamic, war-monger. When you ask them why they like Obama so much, it's "because he's Muslim (yes, yes, we understand he says he's Christian; you gotta do what you gotta do, right?)" or "because he's African", or my favorite: "because he will stop helping Israel, and then they will collapse". That's it. Nothing about financial policy, nothing about human rights, nothing about about Iraq even. Just "Religion, Color, Religion". Gah.
And the comments again. Even worse than the previous article. The one-worlders and I'm-so-embarrassed-to-be-an-American crowd swarmed that one. We're citizens of the world; the President of the United States is really everybody's president, so we need to vote how the world wants us to; the world will respect and love us if we just elect Obama. These are the type of people who stayed in Europe when the first waves of immigration to the colonies occurred. The people who want to be taken care of, who look to others for their self-worth. Unfortunately, all it takes is a generation of easy living for these people to prosper again. And it's been a number of generations since thing were really hard in the US.
No wonder I can't stand being around large groups of people. It sucks the smart out of you.

as it was on at 0300 here, but looking over the news, I see multiple MSM sources saying Palin wasn't a complete failure. And my friend across the hallway (he is actually my friend; I just received a an autographed Lemmy Kilmeister photo from him. Dude has more bands sending him stuff....) isn't gloating about Palin being stomped into political mud, like he was anticipating yesterday. Both of these things indicate to me that she probably handled herself well, but didn't utterly route Biden. Which isn't bad, given the years of practice he's had sucking up to the camera.
But now, it's back to online school, and today's class topic:
Corporate Culture: Should We Pretend We Understand It, Or Just Say WTF?
Thursday, October 2, 2008
Some asshat plugged his personal computer into the dedicated base system and managed to loose a virus into our mainframe. Now getting online is a hit or miss affair, with speeds reminiscent of the bad old dial-up days. Not nice when you're doing an online school and half your time is spent trying to get pages to come up, or sending a post only to have it disappear into the ether. And this comes after some dipshit plugged a personal router into the base system a few weeks ago, crashing everything for several days, and resulting in a barracks by barracks hunt for the offending equipment. Time to budget for emplacing some nice solid stocks and containers for rotten vegetables out on the parade grounds.
