“Variations in bone density, size and mass, as well as filtering effects from soft tissues and joints, mean different locations are acoustically distinct”
Nobody Knows why anyone would want to make a movie about some guy going around loaded with giant machetes, cutting off American gringo’s heads, stirring up the Mexican’s hatred with passionate dreams about wanting to invade our country and take it as theirs.. but there you go. One must start with replacing the soon to be dead old people in the United States with young Mexican blood sometime..
“Mexico is not willing to take that anymore. We need a program that is permanent,that has certainty, and complies with NAFTA. And we`re not willing to accept anything less than that.”
“I am frequently asked about our system of education. I say that we have none. The trouble with our way of education as generally followed is that it does not give elasticity to the mind. It casts the brain into a mold. It insists that the child must accept. It does not encourage original thought or reasoning, and it lays more stress on memory than on observation. “Â Thomas Edison, 1948.
“Human beings, as they are now constituted, are unable to be very happy, because, no matter how much they have, they want more. I refer now to material things–to money and the luxuries of life.” Â said Mr. Edison
MATTHEWS: But he looks like a car bomber. He looks like a car bomber. Clarence, he looks like a car bomber. (He was talking to some guy named Clarence) He’s got that crazy Mephistophelian grin of his. He looks like he loves torturing. Look at the guy! I mean this, this is not the face of a president.
Early Thursday morning I’ll be heading to Las Vegas for the weekend. I heard the temperature is in the low 70’s and it’s sunny, so I just couldn’t help myself.
That was the boring part — here’s the fun part: Joyanna Adams has graciously accepted my invitation to guest-blog a bit while I’m gone.
I might pop up here or on Twitter from time to time with updates or pics, and I plan on posting a little at Michelle’s place over the weekend too.
Please welcome Joyanna and enjoy the weekend. I’ll be back here full-time (or something like that) on Tuesday at some point.
I promise to share my winnings with all of you (in the Michael Moore sense of “sharing”).

Welcome to the Wisconsin Capitol’s Bed & Extremely High Cholesterol Breakfast.
The union’s Capitol crash-fest is like Woodstock, but a lot fatter and without all that “peace and love” crap.
Update: No wonder Charles Rangel shows such solidarity with the union.
Lately, Mike Huckabee has been a one-man defense team for Michelle and Barack Obama for anything from “Let’s Move” to their religious beliefs to the issue of Obama’s citizenship, but he recently became an accidental birther:
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee suggested in a radio interview that President Barack Obama’s childhood in Kenya shaped his worldview â€” even though Obama did not visit Kenya until he was in his 20s.
The potential Republican presidential candidate told New York radio station WOR on Monday that Obama’s youth led him to resent the West, which he said explains why, in Huckabee’s view, Obama’s foreign policy differs so greatly from that of his predecessors.
“One thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, (is) very different than the average American,” Huckabee said, pointing to Obama’s decision in 2009 to remove a bust of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill from the Oval Office.
The Huckster’s spokesman said that Mike of course meant to say Obama gerw up in Indonesia and not Kenya.
But it was enough to make Media Matters have a mini-tizzy, which is always fun.
If you live long enough, you get to see everything:
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Navy says it is forging ahead with its decision to name a warship for the late Rep. John Murtha, despite protests the decorated Vietnam War veteran was disloyal in his 2006 accusation that Marines had murdered Iraqi civilians.
Three Facebook sites opposing the Navy’s April 2010 decision bristle with thousands of angry postings. The Navy website with the announcement drew critical comments. The Washington Times voiced its outrage in an editorial entitled “Sink the Murtha.”
But the Navy says it is standing firm.
First there was ABSCAM and the dubious “King of Pork” distinction, but the man lost what was left of his credibility with this 2006 exchange with Tingles (in his pre-Tingle days) about the Haditha Marines who were on trial at the time:
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST: Let me ask you Mr. Murtha to give us some details about that. Draw us a picture of what happened at Haditha.
REP. JOHN â€œJACKâ€ MURTHA: Well, Iâ€™ll tell you exactly what happened. One Marine was killed and the Marines just said weâ€™re going to take care â€“ we donâ€™t know who the enemy is, the pressure was too much on them, so they went into houses and they actually killed civilians. And, and â€“
MATTHEWS:â€”was this My Lai? Was this a case of â€“ when you say cold blood Congressman, a lot of people think youâ€™re basically saying you got some civilians sitting in a room around a field and theyâ€™re executed.
MURTHA: Thatâ€™s exactly it.
The Haditha Marines were exonerated and Murtha never apologized. Sure, let’s name a ship after him.
They’re calling it the “USS John P. Murtha” because “USS Accusing Marines of Cold Blooded Murder Before the Facts Were Known” seemed a bit too long.
In Indiana, a union is looking to hire some protesters for astroturfing. Don’t look for the union label, though.
It’s safe to assume it’s a non-union gig because it only pays 25 cents more than Indiana’s minimum wage.
Non-union protest labor needs to organize in order to be paid a living wage from the people who claim to be fighting for the working man.
