A note of encouragement.

I would like to encourage our Democratic friends to continue their efforts to block all attempts to expand our energy supply.

That's bound to work real well for you in November

Scientists: Watermelon yields Viagra-like effects

Jul 3, 7:45 AM (ET)

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - A slice of cool, fresh watermelon is a juicy way to top off a Fourth of July cookout and one that researchers say has effects similar to Viagra - but don't necessarily expect it to keep the fireworks all night long.

Watermelons contain an ingredient called citrulline that can trigger production of a compound that helps relax the body's blood vessels, similar to what happens when a man takes Viagra, said scientists in Texas, one of the nation's top producers of the seedless variety.

Found in the flesh and rind of watermelons, citrulline reacts with the body's enzymes when consumed in large quantities and is changed into arginine, an amino acid that benefits the heart and the circulatory and immune systems.

"Arginine boosts nitric oxide, which relaxes blood vessels, the same basic effect that Viagra has, to treat erectile dysfunction and maybe even prevent it," said Bhimu Patil, a researcher and director of Texas A&M's Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center. "Watermelon may not be as organ-specific as Viagra, but it's a great way to relax blood vessels without any drug side effects."

Maybe the Chosen One can bring us together.

But I'm betting not.

By the way if you can find an actual story on MSNBC - not the video - let me know.

Which Case Defines Your Culture?

In Texas, a grand jury declines prosecuting a man who shot and killed two robbers fleeing his neighbor’s house.

In Belgium, a couple murdered their spouses in 2001 to collect the insurance money and run away together. The man was sentenced to 20 years, but released last month. The woman? Sentenced to 15 and released last year. (Here’s the link, but it’s in French. Sorry.)

I suppose which culture you feel more comfortable in depends on who you plan to kill.


OnMilwaukee.com is reporting that Ryan Braun has moved to within 32,925 votes of a starting outfield role in the All Star game.

Rut Roh, rhat's gonna tick off the base Reorge.

Barack (censored) Obama doesn't need the whacko base now that he is the nominee, time to take a dig on Moveon.

The sprint is on!

The sprint to the middle that is.

Anyone wanna tell me the magical words a guy that voted to kill an "accidental" live birth during an abortion is going to say to court Evangelicals?
Enquiring minds want to know. Remember how libbys used to call Bush's "Faith based" programs kooky? Yeah, not any more.

Something tells me he his starting to believe his own holiness (tha's BS, to you few remaining non-lemmings out there)....that or drinking from his own Kool-Aid.

Conservatives Need Not Apply

After I read this article, refrains from the song "Signs" by the Five Man Electrical Band began ringing through my head. Song is circa 1972--and I only know if from the Oldies stations--trying not to date myself here...You know it, don't you? "Signs Signs everywhere a sign. Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind. Do this don't do that, can't you read the sign?"

Anyway, now that I've tried to deflect attention away from my age, here is the latest example of the extreme left wing of the Democrat party telling conservative, free-thinking people that they need not apply to their party. They are not welcome. In fact, the uberlib's in your party will use the court system to keep you out from under their tent. Note who the crackerjack lawyer is on the case: Jim Doyle's own Michael Maistelman.

So much for the party of tolerance.

DNC Issues "World’s Most Dangerous" List

As a continuing effort to bolster their credentials on National Security, the DNC today issued a list of "governmental and private organization, leaders, and opinion shapers that are making the world a more dangerous place by their continued attack on liberty and freedom everywhere."

Chairman Howard Dean said in a statement that "the Republican-driven image of Democrats being soft on security is a fable, and this list shows that we will look tyrants in the eye and tell them 'enough.' The American people know that the Democrats, and our potential nominee, will protect our way of life regardless of the cost."

The list includes:

Colonel Sanders
"He might try to fool you by dressing like Uncle Sam, but this unpatriotic grease-grubber wants to fatten us up for totalitarian slaughter. Only through dietary purity can we hope to achieve balance with our planet and our own health. Eating fried foods is not only unhealthy; it's unethical, unenvironmental, and unpatriotic."

John Bolton
"There hasn't been a mustache this threatening since the heyday of Yosemite Sam, shooting up the streets of Gold Gulch until a brave rabbit managed to stop him. Well, the DNC symbol might be a donkey, but we have the heart of a rabbit, and we'll stand up against this warmonger and see him tried in The Hague for the next thirty years to ensure that justice is done."

Fox News
"Mouth organ of the neo-conservative warmongering latter-day Nazis that seek to dissemble instead of dialogue. Anchors are little more than administration spokespeople on a wide variety of issues from repressing the urban poor to disbanding unions to starting new wars to distract from an economy that is swirling down a toilet of chaos and despair."

Oil Companies
"When CEOs are driven around in giant luxury automobiles and you have to share a tandem bicycle just to go to work, you know that the capitalist system has become unbalanced to the breaking point. So it's time to slap a windfall profit on these people, because 10% IRR is just way too much."

Thanks Heather.

Weekend Funny, The Singhsons (The indian version of the Simpsons)

These Democrats will say absolutely anything.

Retired General Wesley Clark actually had the guts to question John McCain's experience and belittled his being shot down as a fighter pilot in the service of his country.

From a retired military person this is especially heinous.

Beyond that to actually question McCains experience as opposed to Obama's? Obama is a first term senator! For cryin' out loud the Democrats have but up a freaking neophyte and they actually have the cajones to question McCain's experience?

I really am just stunned at the lies these people tell and get away with.

Now there is some irony for you...
