Kill Ugly Messenger Spam

After deluging us with spam emails, annoying browser pop-ups the advertising scumbags have found a new, more heinous method to annoy and harass you by making use of the Window's Messenger service. Originally, it was meant to be a tool where folks on a network and the network administrator could communicate with other network folks, like network will be down or back up your files, etc. But now it's being used to annoy you with sleazy advertising. The most frequent one is an ad to block these evil messages, naturally at a price. But that is just a waste of money. Go to start>control panel>adminstrative tools>services>messenger and alt-enter or right click to properties and you can turn it off free of charge in about 5 seconds. For further dope and more thorough instructions, check out this website.

Our Junior Senator, the Ambassador

"In New Zealand, Mrs. Clinton revealed, concerning the distinctive spelling of her first name, that she had been named after Sir Edmund Hillary, conqueror of Everest. The locals lapped it up, at least until the great man pointed out that he hadn't conquered Everest until 1953: Hillary Rodham was born in 1947, when Sir Edmund was an obscure New Zealand beekeeper and an unlikely inspiration for young parents in a Chicago suburb."

Memorial Day Blues

Wet rainy day, watching a lot of good gung ho stuff on the tube like "Bataan", "Midway", "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo" or R Lee Ermey play with grenade launchers. Little historical fact about "Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo". In real life, the Japanese Army killed 200,000 inhabitants of the province in China where Doolittle's planes landed in retaliation of the folks helping our fliers. More than Hiroshima and Nagasaki combined, except with bayonets, swords, bullets, clubs, artillery and fire.

French Military Prowess from the Sicilian Perspective

World War I - Tied and on the way to losing, France is saved by the United States. Thousands of French women find out what it's like to not only sleep with a winner, but one who doesn't call her "Fraulein." Sadly, widespread use of condoms by American forces forestalls any improvement in the French bloodline.

World War II - Lost. Conquered French liberated by the United States and Britain just as they finish learning the Horst Wessel Song.

War in Indochina - Lost. French forces plead sickness, take to bed with the Dien Bien Flu

Algerian Rebellion - Lost. Loss marks the first defeat of a western army by a Non-Turkic Muslim force since the Crusades, and produces the First Rule of Muslim Warfare; "We can always beat the French." This rule is identical to the First Rules of the Italians, Russians, Germans, English, Dutch, Spanish, Vietnamese and Esquimaux.

Four terrorist blasts rock Casablanca, killing at least 24 people, officials say, AP 5/16/03 11:44 PM

RABAT, Morocco (AP) -- Terrorists exploded four bombs in the coastal city of Casablanca late Friday, killing at least 24 people and damaging the Belgian consulate, a Jewish center and a Spanish restaurant, officials said. Sixty people were wounded.

More Al Qaeda. Me thinks it's a swan song of international terrorism. They're sticking to Muslim countries because it's too hot here for them. And it's going to cost them a vast resevoir of Islamic goodwill as the blood flows at home. They will never succeed at destablization of the despotic satrapies of Algeria and Saudia Arabia and they will only bring our wrath down on old friends. Even Islamic folks are plain sick of them when all they can do is kill mainly other Muslims. But why the Belgium Embassy, the mini France of appeasement and neutrality?
