I am going to change gears here for a thread and NOT talk about politics or carry on arguments with no clear end in sight.
So what to talk about?
Well, I do a lot of StumbleUpon. I have the StumbleUpon toolbar in my browser and when I am bored I will spend an hour just “stumbling” to see the interesting sites out there.
Today I stumbled upon a page of Vintage Advertising At Its Worst - Part 2 and was captivated enough it the examples that I saw, that I spent the next several hours Googling for more.
Here are some examples:

LC & IB Vulcanrider came across an article demonstrating the continued, clueless, hopeless, and IQ lowering ignorance of what passes as journalism these days. Being the fine upstanding Rottie and nasty bastard he is, he couldn’t resist a most righteous clue-batting of the first order.
More Journalistic Stupidity On Display posted over at the Cigar Intelligence Agency.
The topic, Motorcycles and why ‘Wendy’ just doesn’t see why people actually enjoying riding them.
What follows is a stunning display of the epitome of clue-bereft journalism today and to think it gets paid for scrawling those screeds.

Considering this lying weasel and King of Race Baiting has gotten way too many passes in previous criminal activities, maybe this time he’ll get nailed.
Sharpton Denounces Reports Of Probe
The Rev. Al Sharpton on Thursday angrily denounced reports of an investigation into his 2004 presidential bid and suggested that federal authorities were retaliating against him for his civil rights advocacy.
Al, somehow I think playing the race card immediately isn’t going to work this time. By the way, does anyone know where his church is, what denomination and where he earned the title of Reverend? The other question I have is why this asshole is even given a microgram of credibility by anyone, considering his history, is beyond me. With the exception of the Cape Cod Orca and Oldsmobile Sub Driver, I can’t think of someone that’s managed to dodge outright illegal activities more than this Shyster. I hear y’all yammering out there, the frothing liberal Dead Stream Media™ simply loves him, but at some point he has to run out of “I’m credible because I’m black and angry”.
“I have probably been under every investigation known to man and I can’t remember a time that I’ve not been under investigation,” Sharpton said at the Harlem headquarters of his civil rights organization.
And with lots of justification, it’s just that you’ve managed to keep up the One-Trick-Pony act long enough to keep dodging the bullets. It doesn’t take rocket science to see through your game, along with your fellow traveler Je$$e “I have a $cheme” Jack$on. Find something, anything, where you can ride in to town, play the race-card, threaten to ignite racial unrest, get paid-off to bugger-off and ride out with da’ loot. Seems like the Feds finally found your soft yellow underbelly. Exactly who, what and where the proceeds from selling out your race, end up.
He continued: “The issues raised are issues that we’ve learned over and over again, particularly when we are approaching an election season.”
Translation: I’ve learned to duck, dodge, and broken-field run through any and all criminal responsibility until now.
Newspapers reported Thursday that federal authorities subpoenaed financial records and employees in an apparent probe of his presidential bid, nonprofit civil rights group and for-profit businesses.
Now you done it. Only the Nazi’s at the IRS can play dirtier pool than you can Al Baby. Maybe you can write a book about how an Infernal Revenue Service Proctoscopy feels. We can only hope they use the XXX-Large diameter probe on you.
Sharpton said he thought the timing of the investigation was suspicious, coming just weeks after he led a march on the Justice Department to demand federal intervention in the Jena Six case in Louisiana and better enforcement of hate crimes.
Nice try, but your timing is off, those subpoenas have already been served and I wouldn’t expect your toadies are going to turn down immunity offers when the heat is on. You may want to consider dropping the outrage and discontinue flapping your lying lips at this point. I have to have sympathy for your counsel, he’s got his work cut out for him, because we all know that getting you to shut-up for a nanosecond is near impossible, especially if you see a chance to cash in.
As many as 10 Sharpton associates were subpoenaed Wednesday to testify before a federal grand jury in Brooklyn on Dec. 26, his lawyer told the Daily News.
They were told to provide investigators with financial records from the campaign and roughly six Sharpton-related businesses, as well as personal financial documents of Sharpton and his wife, the newspaper said.
Is that flapping noise I hear, some chickens coming home to roost? Looks to me like the Feds are moving quick with a grand jury being convened only a few weeks off.
Memo To Al: Don’t make any spring-break vacation plans for 2008.
The FBI and Internal Revenue Service are seeking the records, which go back to 2001, according to the Daily News.
2001 ?? My, my, my the IRS is using the 1,000,000 gauge proctoscope. Look at the bright side of it Al, you won’t need to worry about constipation for a long time when they get done.
An FBI agent who answered the phone at the agency’s New York headquarters declined to comment, and an agency spokesman did not immediately return a telephone message. An IRS spokesman did not immediately return phone calls.
Jeez, when is J-School ever going to teach their graduates that authorities will NEVER release information about criminal investigations in progress. I know you’re paid by the column-inch, but the statement neither adds nor detracts from the actual article.
The charges against the six black students accused of attacking a white student in Jena, La., led to the September demonstration by Sharpton and other activists who alleged local authorities were prosecuting blacks more harshly than whites.
And that didn’t quite turn out very well for your side either, did it Al?
This could get real entertaining before it’s over.

After spending HOURS under the hood here, tightening screws, cinching down bolts, and looking for vacuum leaks, I finally got things humming along at a pretty respectable speed. In the process I even “Poped” a few rivets as I have a tendency to do every now and then.
What did I find?
I know some of you expected to find this:

For those of you who weren’t here giving your undivided attention to this site (BC is making a list and will be punishing you later), the load times at this site ground down to a virtual standstill for the past two days, for some unknown reason.
First it was working, then it wasn’t.
On Friday night, Misha contacted Hosting Matters and lucked out by getting Annette instead of Stacy. She told Misha the following:
“you had tons of sleeping mysql processes, just chewing up resources without doing much of anything else. I’ve restarted mysql to clear that and restarted apache as well, and that’s brought things more into line with what we want to see. You may want to check whatever app(s) you’re running and make sure they’re not using persistent connections, as that’s the major cause of this sort of thing.”
So Misha rolled up his Imperial sleeves and rooted around under the hood, pulling wires and twisting wrenches to see if he could find what the problem was. He settled on a plugin called Wassup a real-time visitor tracking doohicky that will literally “spy” on whoever comes to this site. Call it our own personal NSA listening device.
Before you start screaming “violations of privacy!”, it isn’t as bad as it sounds. The plugin just takes the same information that any server collects and displays it in real time — as you navigate through the site.
The problem apparently was that the database table the plugin created started to get fairly large — about 11 Mb. When Misha brought this to my attention, I went and emptied it and we gave each other cyber high-fives and bragged about how smart we were.
Unfortunately, a few hours later we were experiencing the same problems of slow, lethargic responses. THIS time it wasn’t Wassup causing it. So I just went in and pulled the plug on everything, and deleted all tables that were non-essential stock, out-of-the-box WordPress issue, and put the default theme in place.
That was last night.
Now, I am going to start bringing things back on line. I have a SQL response thing at the top of the page so I can keep an eye on the SQL database. Last night, even with everything turned off and running stock, the SQL server would take up to 25 seconds to do 43 queries. (Ideally it should be under a half second, and three seconds is considered “slow”)

We’ve known all along the enviro-loons true belief, that man is parasitic and Mother Gaia herself is the only thing worth saving. We see it rattling around in their pointed heads, carefully parsed statements and policy proposals, but NOW they’ve dropped trou’ showing they truly are stark-raving mad. Clinically so, as their ideas amounts to de-facto genocide.
Meet the women who won’t have babies - because they’re not eco friendly
Had Toni Vernelli gone ahead with her pregnancy ten years ago, she would know at first hand what it is like to cradle her own baby, to have a pair of innocent eyes gazing up at her with unconditional love, to feel a little hand slipping into hers - and a voice calling her Mummy.
The beauty of motherhood and all that goes along with it. But wait there’s more…..
But the very thought makes her shudder with horror. Because when Toni terminated her pregnancy, she did so in the firm belief she was helping to save the planet.
Perhaps, she should have thought of saving the planet before spreading her legs. All that grunting, huffing and puffing exerted to make that murdered child increased your carbon footprint didn’t it?
Desperate measures: Toni Vernelli was sterilized at age 27 to reduce her carbon footprint
Why even bother with the intermediate step? Just down a few hundred miligrams of alprazolam and a quart of everclear. Cheaper and you’ll reduce your carbon footprint even more, allowing for ’some’ minor carbon dioxide releases during decomposition of your useless, brain-dead, indoctrinated self.
Incredibly, so determined was she that the terrible “mistake” of pregnancy should never happen again, that she begged the doctor who performed the abortion to sterilize her at the same time.
Wholly disregarding for even a moment, that the terrible mistake might have been avoided by remaining celibate.
He refused, but Toni - who works for an environmental charity - “relentlessly hunted down a doctor who would perform the irreversible surgery. [Emph Mine]
I have this mental image of this waste of skin, chasing doctors down the street screaming, “I MUST, I MUST save the world !!!”. The doctor should have agreed and promptly had her committed for a psychiatric evaluation before picking up a knife. Why am I not surprised she works for an environmental charity?
Finally, eight years ago, Toni got her way. At the age of 27 this young woman at the height of her reproductive years was sterilized to “protect the planet”. Incredibly, instead of mourning the loss of a family that never was, her boyfriend (now husband) presented her with a congratulations card.
It’s too bad hubby didn’t enclose some semtex and an appropriate fusing device in the card, to be opened together in the ultimate gesture of saving the planet. Perhaps next year on the anniversary you can arrange to have Ted Kaczynski send one of his trademarked cards.
While some might think it strange to celebrate the reversal of nature and denial of motherhood, Toni relishes her decision with an almost religious zeal. “Having children is selfish. It’s all about maintaining your genetic line at the expense of the planet,” says Toni, 35.
Tahhh-Dahhhh, there we have it in black and white folks, they DO believe humans are merely parasitic life-forms.
On the other hand, they might be onto something here. If we could get the rest of the Church of Gaia™ to participate in this wonderful program, we would be loon-free in a single generation.
“Every person who is born uses more food, more water, more land, more fossil fuels, more trees and produces more rubbish, more pollution, more greenhouse gases, and adds to the problem of over-population.” While most parents view their children as the ultimate miracle of nature, Toni seems to see them as a sinister threat to the future. [Emph Mine again]
Geez, I guess we humans are even worse than parasites, as they rarely kill their hosts. Jonestown Redux anyone? This time you’ll have your choice of Kool-Aid flavors, all certified organic.
It gets better and if I read it again, I’ll have to perform the second cleaning of my keyboard, so just do it on your own, M’Kay?

I’m still getting some disturbances with the site, but thanks to DJ for all the hard work, it’s definitely getting faster.
Hat Tip to Da’ Bac for this little gem !!! Thanks Buddy !!!!
Regardless, I’ll post this up as it’s a good read and I owed M a way overdue post over at Cigar Intelligence Agency:
Demonstrating classic Clintoonian politics, Hillary gets nailed twice in ONE week. First she pulls a classic Kerry Two-Step on a softball question, now she’s planting questions in the crowd and her succubi handlers aren’t above planting them with kids.
Break out the popcorn and a beverage, once the primaries are over, this campaign is gonna’ get right sporty if not outright hilarious.

In case anyone is wondering, I am busy tinkering with the performance of this site. I realize that this is a “live site” and that anything I do here is affecting people in their normal course of reading and writing. But it cannot be helped — I need to be live to do this, and I hope y’all just bear with me for a while.
I am adding and removing different scripts (yep, I said scripts) to see what it is that is dragging things down — if anything. So you are going to see somethings disappear, appear, go wild, and a few other things.
I will try to be quick as I can.
[Update: Okay, I have gone as far as I can go for now. I will leave you with a couple of links for you to enjoy:
Second (This was my advice for Aaron when he moved to Houston last month…)
Third (For BC)
- and -
Okay, have a nice night.

In what has to be one of the most disgusting,degraded, stomach turning acts of moral equivalence,the moonbats of that “defender of freedom and human rights” Amnesty International sent a press release , asking us to plead for the lives of the Bali bombers.
A stunned silence was heard, followed by a torrent of rage, including at least fifty Australians who would like nothing better than to personally pull the trigger, and send these little monsters to the Hell they so richly deserve.
Myself amongst them.
To add insult to anguish, Amnesty have added that this is in line with the “human rights” of the condemned.
What about the human rights of the TWO HUNDRED they murdered in cold blood, you fucking quisling?????
On 12 October 2002, a suicide bomber inside the nightclub Paddy’s Pub detonated a bomb in his backpack, causing many patrons, with or without injuries, to immediately flee into the street.
Fifteen seconds later, a second and much more powerful car bomb hidden inside a white Mitsubishi van, was detonated by another suicide bomber outside the Sari Club, located opposite Paddy’s Pub
Those fortunate enough to survive the first bomb, died in the fireball that followed.
