2 gross jokes

Three nuns were up to be inducted into the convent but they went out partying over the weekend. So the Mother Superior got the 3 of them together and said "Ok, I know you girls probably did something naughty, so, just confess and I'll forgive you." The first nun says "Ok, I gave a guy a hand-job & touched a penis" the MS says "Ok, all you have to do is wash your hands in the holy water" so she does, and the MS dismisses her.
Then the 2nd nun goes over to the holy water, puts her hands in, cups them, takes a big gulp, gargles and spits it back into the bowl. The Mother says "Um, what was that about?!" the nun says "Well, I figured I should go first before she dunks her ass in it!"

A man gets out of the Navy after 5 years straight to the New Orleans French Quarter and he goes to the first whore house he spots. Walks in and tells the Madam his story, and how he's only got 10 bucks to his name. She's understanding of his plight and says "Ok, you'll have to wait at least 10 minutes, kinda busy here, any preference?!" "Blond is fine" he says. "Ok, just wait in that room to my left and she'll be down ASAP." So he sits down on the rickety chair, helps himself to a soda in the cooler in front of him as well as some stewed tomatoes on the table in front of him. He starts flipping through channels on the TV when the blond comes down there stairs for him, she takes one look at him, screams at the top of her lungs and runs back up the stairs yelling "OH FUCK NO! NO WAY AM I DOING SHIT WITH HIM!!!" The guy is flustered to say the least, and the Madam hollers to him "What the hell was that about?!" The guy walks back around to her desk and says "I have no idea..." "Well, shit, sorry about that, I know you're deal being in the Navy 5 years, oh hey, how about this really hot redhead?! I think you'll like her." "Sure, thanks." So he goes back to drinking his soda & eating the tomatoes, clearing his mind of the blond. A few minutes later the hot redhead comes down the stairs and pretty much the same thing happens. "OH MY GOD, HELL NO, I AIN'T FUCKING HIM OR ANYTHING!!!" Now he's pissed! He storms back over to the Madam and she says "Ok ok, just calm down...damned if I know what got into those bitches today. Alright, would you like a brunet?! She's very cute. Hey, I'll even let you have her on the house, I feel your plight." "Ok, thank you, I just don't get it." "Well, I'll have a talk with them, hey, the brunet will be down soon." "Oh ok, thank you again." So he goes back to the chair in the waiting room, finishes the soda and continues with the tomatoes. The brunet comes down the stairs, SCREAMS at the top of her lungs, and before she can run back up stairs, he stands up and says "WOAH WAIT A MINUTE! WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR PROBLEM?! ALL I'M DOING IS SITTING HERE, WATCHING TV, DRINKING A SODA AND EATING THE STEWED TOMATOES!!!" The brunet has a look of absolute HORROR on her face and says..."Those...those aren't...those aren't stewed tomatoes...those are yesterday's abortions!!!"

Rumor: Specter to switch to Democratic Party today

Tue Apr 28, 2009 at 09:05:05 AM PDT

He'll likely be a Lieberdem, but still, a 60th seat would be quite the 100-day present for Barack Obama.

Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter will switch his party affiliation from Republican to Democrat, according to sources informed on the decision.

Specter's decision would give Democrats a 60 seat filibuster proof majority in the Senate assuming Democrat Al Franken is eventually sworn in as the next Senator from Minnesota. (Former Sen. Norm Coleman is appealing Franken's victory in the state Supreme Court.)

Question: does this mean Specter will go back to a pro-labor stance on EFCA, having abandoned it in vain hopes of staving off a GOP primary challenge?

IT WAS RICE WHO APPROVED THE CIA TORTURE!!!

Rice OK'd CIA waterboard request as Bush adviser

By PAMELA HESS, Associated Press Writer Pamela Hess, Associated Press Writer 32 mins ago

WASHINGTON – As national security adviser to former President George W. Bush, Condoleezza Rice verbally approved the CIA's request to subject alleged al-Qaida terrorist Abu Zubaydah to waterboarding in July 2002, the earliest known decision by a Bush administration official to OK use of the simulated drowning technique.

Rice's role was detailed in a narrative released Wednesday by the Senate Intelligence Committee. It provides the most detailed timeline yet for how the CIA's harsh interrogation program was conceived and approved at the highest levels in the Bush White House.

The new timeline shows that Rice played a greater role than she admitted last fall in written testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee.

The narrative also shows that dissenting legal views about the severe interrogation methods were brushed aside repeatedly.

The Intelligence Committee's timeline comes a day after the Senate Armed Services Committee released an exhaustive report detailing direct links between the CIA's harsh interrogation program and abuses of prisoners at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in Afghanistan and at Iraq's Abu Ghraib prison.

Both revelations follow President Barack Obama's release of internal Bush administration legal memos that justified the use of severe methods by the CIA, a move that kicked up a firestorm from opposing sides of the ideological spectrum.

According to the new narrative, which compiles legal advice provided by the Bush administration to the CIA, Rice personally conveyed the administration's approval for waterboarding of Zubaydah, a so-called high-value detainee, to then-CIA Director George Tenet in July 2002.

Last fall, Rice acknowledged to the Senate Armed Services Committee only that she had attended meetings where the CIA interrogation request was discussed and asked for the attorney general to conduct a legal review. She said she did not recall details. Rice omitted her direct role in approving the program in her written statement to the committee.

A spokesman for Rice declined comment when reached Wednesday.

Days after Rice gave Tenet the nod, the Justice Department approved the use of waterboarding in a top secret Aug. 1 memo. Zubaydah underwent waterboarding at least 83 times in August 2002.

In the years that followed, according to the narrative issued Wednesday, there were numerous internal legal reviews of the program, suggesting government attorneys raised concerns that the harsh methods, particularly waterboarding, might violate federal laws against torture and the U.S. Constitution.

But Bush administration lawyers continued to validate the program. The CIA voluntarily dropped the use of waterboarding, which has a long history as a torture tactic, from its arsenal of techniques after 2005.

According to the two Senate reports, CIA lawyers first presented the plan to waterboard Zubaydah to White House lawyers in April 2002, a few weeks after his capture in Pakistan. Tenet wrote in his memoir that CIA officers themselves originated the idea.

In May 2002, Rice, along with then-Attorney General John Ashcroft and White House counsel Alberto Gonzales met at the White House with the CIA to discuss the use of waterboarding.

The Armed Services Committee report says that six months earlier, in December 2001, the Pentagon's legal office already had made inquiries about the use of mock interrogation and detention tactics to a U.S. military training unit that schools armed forces personnel in how to endure harsh treatment. A former intelligence official said Wednesday the CIA officers also based their proposed harsh interrogations on the mock interrogation methods used by the unit. He declined to be identified because the CIA had not authorized the disclosure of the information.

In July 2002, responding to a follow-up from the Pentagon general counsel's office, officials at the training unit, the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency, detailed their methods for the Pentagon. The list included waterboarding.

But the training unit warned that harsh physical techniques could backfire by making prisoners more resistant. They also cautioned about the reliability of information gleaned from the severe methods and warned that the public and political backlash could be "intolerable."

"A subject in extreme pain may provide an answer, any answer or many answers in order to get the pain to stop," the training officials said in their memo.

Less than a week later, the Justice Department issued two legal opinions that sanctioned the CIA's harsh interrogation program. The memos appeared to draw deeply on the survival school data provided to the Pentagon to show that the CIA's methods would not cross the line into torture.

The opinion concluded that the harsh interrogation methods would be acceptable for use on terror detainees because the same techniques did not cause severe physical or mental pain to U.S. military students who were tested in the government's carefully controlled training program.

Several people from the survival program objected to the use of their mock interrogations in battlefield settings. In an October 2002 e-mail, a senior Army psychologist told personnel at Guantanamo Bay that the methods were inherently dangerous and students were sometimes injured, even in a controlled setting.

"The risk with real detainees is increased exponentially," he said.

Nevertheless, for the next two years, the CIA and military officials received interrogation training and direct interrogation support from JPRA trainers.

Last week, the Obama administration's top intelligence official, Dennis Blair, privately told intelligence employees that "high value information" was obtained through the harsh interrogation techniques. However, on Tuesday, in a written statement, Blair said, "The information gained from these techniques was valuable in some instances, but there is no way of knowing whether the same information could have been obtained through other means."

Maddow said she does not like TV news shows that pit two talking heads against one another, a format she calls “boxing masquerading as news.” “I'm not going to tell anybody to shut up unless they say something about my mom,” she added. Maddow also explained that her show won’t be making too many adjustments in the wake of President Bush’s departure from office:

"So wherever there are bad ideas, I will find ways to make fun of them," Maddow says. "Sometimes, that's going to be bad Democratic ideas. It's going to be bad Republican ideas. It's just going to be bad ideas.

"So I don't worry about not having George Bush to beat up on anymore."

You Are Being Lied to About Pirates

By Johann Hari

April 12, 2009 "
Huffington Post" --- Who imagined that in 2009, the world's governments would be declaring a new War on Pirates? As you read this, the British Royal Navy - backed by the ships of more than two dozen nations, from the US to China - is sailing into Somalian waters to take on men we still picture as parrot-on-the-shoulder pantomime villains. They will soon be fighting Somalian ships and even chasing the pirates onto land, into one of the most broken countries on earth. But behind the arrr-me-hearties oddness of this tale, there is an untold scandal. The people our governments are labeling as "one of the great menace of our times" have an extraordinary story to tell -- and some justice on their side.

Pirates have never been quite who we think they are. In the "golden age of piracy" - from 1650 to 1730 - the idea of the pirate as the senseless, savage thief that lingers today was created by the British government in a great propaganda-heave. Many ordinary people believed it was false: pirates were often rescued from the gallows by supportive crowds. Why? What did they see that we can't? In his book Villains of All nations, the historian Marcus Rediker pores through the evidence to find out. If you became a merchant or navy sailor then - plucked from the docks of London's East End, young and hungry - you ended up in a floating wooden Hell. You worked all hours on a cramped, half-starved ship, and if you slacked off for a second, the all-powerful captain would whip you with the Cat O' Nine Tails. If you slacked consistently, you could be thrown overboard. And at the end of months or years of this, you were often cheated of your wages.

Pirates were the first people to rebel against this world. They mutinied against their tyrannical captains - and created a different way of working on the seas. Once they had a ship, the pirates elected their captains, and made all their decisions collectively. They shared their bounty out in what Rediker calls "one of the most egalitarian plans for the disposition of resources to be found anywhere in the eighteenth century." They even took in escaped African slaves and lived with them as equals. The pirates showed "quite clearly - and subversively - that ships did not have to be run in the brutal and oppressive ways of the merchant service and the Royal navy." This is why they were popular, despite being unproductive thieves.

The words of one pirate from that lost age - a young British man called William Scott - should echo into this new age of piracy. Just before he was hanged in Charleston, South Carolina, he said: "What I did was to keep me from perishing. I was forced to go a-pirating to live." In 1991, the government of Somalia - in the Horn of Africa - collapsed. Its nine million people have been teetering on starvation ever since - and many of the ugliest forces in the Western world have seen this as a great opportunity to steal the country's food supply and dump our nuclear waste in their seas.

Yes: nuclear waste. As soon as the government was gone, mysterious European ships started appearing off the coast of Somalia, dumping vast barrels into the ocean. The coastal population began to sicken. At first they suffered strange rashes, nausea and malformed babies. Then, after the 2005 tsunami, hundreds of the dumped and leaking barrels washed up on shore. People began to suffer from radiation sickness, and more than 300 died. Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, the UN envoy to Somalia, tells me: "Somebody is dumping nuclear material here. There is also lead, and heavy metals such as cadmium and mercury - you name it." Much of it can be traced back to European hospitals and factories, who seem to be passing it on to the Italian mafia to "dispose" of cheaply. When I asked Ould-Abdallah what European governments were doing about it, he said with a sigh: "Nothing. There has been no clean-up, no compensation, and no prevention."

At the same time, other European ships have been looting Somalia's seas of their greatest resource: seafood. We have destroyed our own fish-stocks by over-exploitation - and now we have moved on to theirs. More than $300m worth of tuna, shrimp, lobster and other sea-life is being stolen every year by vast trawlers illegally sailing into Somalia's unprotected seas. The local fishermen have suddenly lost their livelihoods, and they are starving. Mohammed Hussein, a fisherman in the town of Marka 100km south of Mogadishu, told Reuters: "If nothing is done, there soon won't be much fish left in our coastal waters."

This is the context in which the men we are calling "pirates" have emerged. Everyone agrees they were ordinary Somalian fishermen who at first took speedboats to try to dissuade the dumpers and trawlers, or at least wage a 'tax' on them. They call themselves the Volunteer Coastguard of Somalia - and it's not hard to see why. In a surreal telephone interview, one of the pirate leaders, Sugule Ali, said their motive was "to stop illegal fishing and dumping in our waters... We don't consider ourselves sea bandits. We consider sea bandits [to be] those who illegally fish and dump in our seas and dump waste in our seas and carry weapons in our seas." William Scott would understand those words.

No, this doesn't make hostage-taking justifiable, and yes, some are clearly just gangsters - especially those who have held up World Food Programme supplies. But the "pirates" have the overwhelming support of the local population for a reason. The independent Somalian news-site WardherNews conducted the best research we have into what ordinary Somalis are thinking - and it found 70 percent "strongly supported the piracy as a form of national defence of the country's territorial waters." During the revolutionary war in America, George Washington and America's founding fathers paid pirates to protect America's territorial waters, because they had no navy or coastguard of their own. Most Americans supported them. Is this so different?

Did we expect starving Somalians to stand passively on their beaches, paddling in our nuclear waste, and watch us snatch their fish to eat in restaurants in London and Paris and Rome? We didn't act on those crimes - but when some of the fishermen responded by disrupting the transit-corridor for 20 percent of the world's oil supply, we begin to shriek about "evil." If we really want to deal with piracy, we need to stop its root cause - our crimes - before we send in the gun-boats to root out Somalia's criminals.

The story of the 2009 war on piracy was best summarised by another pirate, who lived and died in the fourth century BC. He was captured and brought to Alexander the Great, who demanded to know "what he meant by keeping possession of the sea." The pirate smiled, and responded: "What you mean by seizing the whole earth; but because I do it with a petty ship, I am called a robber, while you, who do it with a great fleet, are called emperor." Once again, our great imperial fleets sail in today - but who is the robber?
POSTSCRIPT: Some commenters seem bemused by the fact that both toxic dumping and the theft of fish are happening in the same place - wouldn't this make the fish contaminated? In fact, Somalia's coastline is vast, stretching to 3300km. Imagine how easy it would be - without any coastguard or army - to steal fish from Florida and dump nuclear waste on California, and you get the idea. These events are happening in different places - but with the same horrible effect: death for the locals, and stirred-up piracy. There's no contradiction.

Spot on comment!

Keith has left a new comment on the post "WINZ flip coming mid-April, to become 6th area...":

I will deeply miss Air America in South Florida and I agree with most comments. The corporate owners of Clear Channel and the other massive media outlets gain more from deregulation and conservative government than by high ratings. Rupert Murdoch has been buying up papers and losing money on them. A sixth sports station here won't make money, but it could stem the tide towards re-establishing proper rules about media ownership. Clear Channel with their hundreds of radio stations would be gone if the old rules were brought back, which prior to Clinton's killing them, limited total media outlet ownership to 36 locations.

Why isn't diversity of opinion valued any more? We - the citizens - own the airwaves. WE NEED TO DEMAND they are used in our interest, so they cannot be controlled by Hearst-type organizations like Clear Channel.

Check out the new WINZ website - it's now at least 3/4 pornography. All we have now from Clear Channel is YELLOW JOURNALISM from inflammatory right-wing radio hosts - the whole reason we made the rules in the first place decades ago was to prevent this dereliction of duty.

The FOURTH ESTATE will die without our action:

1. E-mail Sanda Coyle at Clear Channel to let her know how you feel about this switch: Sanda.Coyle@clearchannel.com

2. go to http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=6 to learn other ways to fight back

Check out the last entry for WINZ on Wikipedia !!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WINZ_(AM)

"On April 2, 2009, it was reported on radio-info.com that the station would switch to sports the following day, making it the sixth sports station in Miami; this follows Clear Channel's trend of changing liberal talk formats (regardless of success) to its own Fox Sports network."

Note the "regardless of success" !!!!

This confirms my analysis.

Also see: http://ltradio.blogspot.com/2009/02/black-monday-continued-winz-flipping-to.html

"The station currently enjoys decent ratings, typically maintaining a 1.5 overall share in the Arbitron ratings. That makes it the 4th most popular AM station in the market."

I read somewhere else...can't find the link now...that Air America out-performed the all-sports line-up on WINZ that preceded it.

Blatant disregard for their own profit motive....that's ideological.

Break up Clear Channel now!!!

Reminder to South Florida folks

Since the scumbags at Cum Channel sold out progressive talk on the station that here-in-to shalt not be named again, if you have an Arbitron diary, put these shows down and DO NOT put down ANY Crud Channel stations; fuck 'em, let them DIE already! You have only the following GOOD radio remaining, please support their advertisers and tell them you heard their ads on the respective shows:

Bubba The Love Sponge
on 93.1 FM WHDR - 6 to 10 AM


and

Neil Rogers
on 560 AM WQAM - 10 AM to 2 PM


And THAT'S IT. Unfuckingbelievable. Tragic that Miami / Ft. Lauderdale / West Palm Beach, an area of 6 MILLION people, which also happens to be one of the most liberal areas IN THE COUNTRY is deprived of a thriving MONEY MAKING progressive talk station (and CC has the fucking NERVE to lie about it, cocksuckers to the bitter fucking end) all because Nazi Crap Channel has a defacto monopoly in most major markets which wants nothing more than to see the failure of anything left of oxyRU$Hitler Viagra-Man-Who-Goes-To-THE-Country-Known-ONLY-For-Its-CHILD-SEX-TRADE.
IT IS LONG OVERDUE TIME TO REPEAL THE 1996 TELCOM DEREG ACT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Also, if you live in Southwest FL, you can still get WQAM, so no problem listening to Neil! And Bubba is on 96.1 FM WRXK from Ft. Myers.
