Scared of Horses

Check out my buddy Shipper. He made the New York Times. That's him on the left. Wet suits in Palau are for pussies.

Here's the article that goes with the pic. I've dove Blue Corner twice and Blue Hole to Blue Corner once.

Keep talking, Shrub. Every time you open your pie hole progressive causes reap a windfall.

Bush raises half a million for MoveOn - AMERICAblog: A great nation deserves the truth:

From Eli Pariser, the Executive Director of MoveOn. Dear MoveOn member, Yesterday, an amazing thing happened. After the Senate's shameful vote, and after President Bush called MoveOn 'disgusting,' our email started to fill up with messages like this one: I'm currently in Iraq. I do not agree with this war, and if I did support this war, it would not matter. You have the RIGHT to speak the truth. We KNOW that you support us. Thank you for speaking out for being our voice. We do not have a voice. We are overshooted by those who say that we soldiers do not support organizations like MoveOn. WE DO. YOU ARE OUR voice. And then came the donations. By midnight, over 12,000 people had donated $500,000—more than we've raised any day this year—for our new ad calling out the Republicans who blocked adequate rest for troops headed back to Iraq."

He ain't the only one cryin'.

Supreme Court author: Justice Souter wept when he thought of Bush v. Gore:

"When Jeffrey Toobin, author of The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court, appeared on Thursday's Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert grilled him about the meaning of the book's title. 'Do they have secret handshakes? Is it like the Da Vinci Code? Are there bizarre sexual rites going on there?' Toobin had to admit he wasn't aware of any secrets of that kind, but did confide that 'Justice Souter was so upset about the result in Bush v. Gore that not only did he almost resign the Court because he was so upset, but there were times when he thought about the case and he wept.' 'You say the justices have tried to put the decision of Bush v. Gore behind them and move on,' Colbert said. 'That sounds like one of those movies where a bunch of frat brothers inadvertently kill a prostitute and then later she comes back and haunts them and kills them one by one. Is that it? Are they haunted by that decision?'"

All hat and no cattle.... and scared of horses. Still wanna have a beer with this putz?

Bush should of heeded Cooley's advice:

And I ain’t gonna crawl upon no high horse
Cause I got thrown off of one
when I was young and I ain’t no cowboy
so I ain’t going where I don’t belong.

George Bush the Texan is 'scared of horses' :

"President Bush may like to be seen as a swaggering tough guy with a penchant for manly outdoor pursuits, but in a new book one of his closest allies has said he is afraid of horses. George W Bush saddles up, but where is the horse? Vicente Fox, the former president of Mexico, derided his political friend as a 'windshield cowboy' – a cowboy who prefers to drive – and 'the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life'. He recalled a meeting in Mexico shortly after both men had been elected when Mr Fox offered Mr Bush a ride on a 'big palomino' horse. Mr Fox, who left office in December, recalled Mr Bush 'backing away' from the animal. ''A horse lover can always tell when others don't share our passion,' he said, according to the Washington Post."

Telemarketers: they have your number

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The cherished dinner hour void of telemarketers could vanish next year for millions of people when phone numbers begin dropping off the national Do Not Call list.

The Federal Trade Commission, which oversees the list, says there is a simple fix. But some lawmakers think it is a hassle to expect people to re-register their phone numbers every five years.

Numbers placed on the registry, begun in June 2003, are valid for five years. For the millions of people who signed onto the list in its early days, their numbers will automatically drop off beginning next June if they do not enroll again.


That's got to hurt.

Redwood City man ID'd as acid-vat victim:

(09-23) 13:17 PDT REDWOOD CITY -- San Mateo County Coroner's officials have identified 18-year-old Fernando Jimenez Gonzalez of Redwood City as the man who drowned in a vat of sulfuric acid at a Redwood City factory early this morning. Gonzalez's body was discovered at Coastal Circuits Factory on Tacoma Way at around 1:45 a.m. by his father after Gonzalez didn't arrive home, according to a Redwood City police spokesman."

It's never too early, right? Always noon somewhere....

The Manhattan project: A bartender spills his secrets on the king of cocktails:

"The dry gin martini is often heralded as the king of cocktails, but it's the Manhattan that's the true sovereign of the V-shaped glass. The martini, a mere pretender to the throne, was far more interesting prior to Prohibition - when vermouth made up a full third of the drink and it just wasn't a martini without orange bitters. The Manhattan, on the other hand, is a drink to be reckoned with."
