Forks of Cypress

Murder? Pffft. Freakin' ACORN is signing up people to vote!

I think we know which is more important, now, don't we.

Blackwater Approved $1 Million in Iraqi Payments After Shootings -

"WASHINGTON — Top executives at Blackwater Worldwide authorized secret payments of about $1 million to Iraqi officials that were intended to silence their criticism and buy their support after a September 2007 episode in which Blackwater security guards fatally shot 17 Iraqi civilians in Baghdad, according to former company officials."

We have a problem. We really, really do.

Wonder if any tall, skinny, white military types have been chased and smashed with a tire iron b/c they were mistaken for Timothy McVeigh.

Marine reservist chases, assaults Greek Orthodox priest who he mistook for an Arab terrorist.


Damn commies:

"I gulped. 'I don't have insurance,' I told her guiltily.

'Non?' she said, sounding surprised rather than disgusted.

'Well, I have American insurance, but it won't cover me in France.'

'Non?' She stared at me sympathetically. 'I'm sorry, but I must then ask for payment up front.'

'That's okay,' I said, but I was really thinking, What's it going to be? One-hundred euros? One-fifty?

'The bill is twenty euros.'"

Dirt Underneath

Legal Schnauzer: Republicans Try to Shoot the Messenger on Corruption in Alabama:

"Alabama Republicans, predictably, have tried to discredit GOP gubernatorial candidate Bill Johnson after his statements late last week that current governor Bob Riley received millions of dollars in campaign funds from Mississippi gambling interests in 2002.

A Riley spokesman said Johnson, a former member of Riley's cabinet, never was involved in campaign fund-raising and therefore could not know about such matters. The chairman of the Alabama Republican Party called Johnson's claims 'a joke.'

But the Riley defenders forget one inconvenient truth: This story hardly originated with Bill Johnson."

I read all of these tweets at least once a week. Never gets old. Let's see how badly CBS eff's it up, though.

Here is my high school history teacher, Mr. Wallace lecturing about the Forks of Cypress is Buttholeville. Mr. Wallace remains one of the best teachers I've ever had. He turned a lot of folks into lifetime history buffs.

One thing not mentioned in the video is that a horse track was once on the land surronding the house. Some of the first Kentucky Derby winners came from the Forks.
