…but it’s a question that has been nagging our humble self for quite a while, and what better place to ask than among the smartest people in the world, the LCs of our Empire?

Obviously, nobody would ever dream of going anywhere without a blade of some sort. If not a KA-BAR, then at the very least a pocketknife. The thing is, they tend to get dull with use, just as one would expect. Now, nobody needs to teach us about the finer points (pun very much intended) of sharpening a knife the way G-d intended us to do it. We’re a purist by heart ourself, and nothing, nothing beats a lovingly, carefully honed edge made the old-fashioned way.

But really, who wants to spend that kind of time on a throw-away pocket knife that you use for everything from tightening screws to opening beers? Or, more accurately, who has that kind of time in today’s hectic world?

So we started thinking about those “quicky” knife sharpeners where you simply drag the knife through a slit a few times and you’re done. Problem is, our only experience with those has been that they do anything but sharpen the knife. Then again, that was years and years ago when those gadgets were still new, and we pretty much gave up on the concept once we saw what a shitty job they did. It’s quite possible that they have improved markedly in the intervening decade(s).

So that’s what our question is: Have any of you found an incarnation of those things (or something similar) that actually works?

It would be extremely helpful, because as it is it’s cheaper for us (insert introduction to Opportunity Costs and hourly rates here) to just throw the pocketknife away when it gets dull and buy a new one from Academy or some other such outlet.

Yes, a real knife we’ll happily spend hours on, but a cheap pocketknife? Not on your lives, mates.

Here’s more proof that the 2008 Silly Season is a train-wreck already in progress for the GOP. Congress and Weeniedick W, have approval ratings in the toilet, notably the congressional approvals are the lowest in decades. The conservative base is ready to abandon the GOP ship in droves, and the best the minority party in congress can do is this?

GOP senators offer new timeline for Iraq

A small group of Republicans facing election fights next year have rallied around war legislation they think could unite the GOP: Call for an end to U.S. combat in Iraq, but wait until President Bush is almost out of office.
[Emph Mine]

This sounds eerily like Voinobitch is already preparing a position of surrender to a Hillary Whitehouse.

The Democrats on Friday deemed the legislation a nonstarter, and underscored the difficulty Congress has in striking a bipartisan compromise on the war. What attracts Democrats has repelled Republicans and vice versa, making it impossible so far to find a middle ground.

It’s pretty simple you dim-witted DCites. Call Their Bluff. Propose an immediate cessation of US hostilities and an immediate drawn-down of troops and equipment and let the bastards stand on their votes. But like a dog returning to it’s own vomit, they stay in character with fingers in the wind, believing the Dead Stream Media, BowelMovementOn, etc. that Americans are losing interest in winning the WoT.

“I don’t support it at all,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev. “It doesn’t do anything.”

Harry I’m A Good Treatment For Insomnia™ Reid couldn’t support anything even if equipped with a titanium jock strap. You gotta’ have a pair to support.

The proposal, by Sen. George Voinovich, R-Ohio, would require that Bush change the mission of U.S. troops from combat to primarily support roles, such as training Iraqi security forces and protecting U.S. infrastructure in Iraq. His legislation would set a goal of completing such a mission transition within 15 months.

Fucking Brilliant !!! We’ll stay there and take casualties, but we just won’t shoot back. Only a mouth-breathing RINO like BoyBitch could come up with a surrender plan that INCREASES our casualties.

Give us more, O Emperor! »

From LC & IB Dan:

(CBS 5 / AP) OROVILLE A disgruntled male student, reportedly mad at a teacher, fired shots inside an Oroville high school Friday morning and held two other students hostage in a band room before releasing them and being taken into custody by authorities.

Looks like another case of a psychotic goblin undeterred by those big, scary “Gun Free Zone” signs that are purportedly going to end wanton murder sprees in our schools.

Isn’t it strange, by the way? All the school massacres seem to have happened after the Klintoon Administration pushed through the concept of “Gun Free School Zones?”

If one had a brain (DemCong Nanny Staters need not apply), one might almost detect a cause and effect here.

The Imperial Blogsis unloads on the race-baiting fuckheads constantly whining and blabbering about racism as only she can do it, which is better than anything our humble self could have written.

Don’t believe that that’s possible? Well, we thank you for your vote of confidence, but just go read it and tell us that we’re wrong.

And speaking of the Imperial Blogsis, she’s on a roll here. Next, she dumps a heaping helping of enraged Clue™ on the Hildebeest’s latest “brain”child, which is to endow every child born in the U.S. of A. with $5,000 of government money tied in a fund. And guess whose money she’s about to spend? You get three guesses, and the first two don’t count.

That’s right. If your wallet is hurting, you already guessed it.

Hey, Hillary, you socialist, shit-encrusted c*nt, we already have an endowment for children in this country. It’s called “parents.” But I guess it’s only “fair” to steal $5,000 from my kids’ college fund to pay for some lazy fuck on the dole. Fine. I’m with the Blogsis here: If you’re going to do that, I demand $5,000 in 1967 dollars PLUS compounded interest.

Stalinist sow.

(UPDATE:  Those of you who think for one second like you’re doing me any great psychological harm by only giving my PFW posts one ratings star - bite me. As long as the Emperor allows me posting privileges here, and as long as there’s football to be talked about, the PFW posts are going to be here, and there’s not a damned thing you can do about it.

That is all. -S.)

Today’s edition of the Perfect Football Weekend™ starts with a commentary on a commentary.

By now, you’ve heard about the Mike Gundy brouhaha. The Oklahoma State football coach went a little rantblog on the media (the tirade is here if you haven’t seen it) after their stunning surprising not-terribly unexpected upset of Texas Tech.

(SIDE NOTE: No, really, it wasn’t that unexpected. If SMU can put up 21 on ‘em…)

Anyway, the question has been raised this week about whether college f’ball players should be held up to the same level of criticism as the pros. Certainly I dumped my share of abuse on Cowboys cornerback Quincy Butler when he was with TCU (and trust me, I didn’t call him “Toast” for nothing).

On the one hand, you think that if they can’t handle the criticism, why are they even out there in the first place. On the other, they are just collegians, and they’re supposed to be there to receive an education; playing football, even if on scholarship, is supposed to be secondary.

(Slight pause while the overwhelming majority of you recover from the ROFL jag. Sorry there was no spew alert.)

So how much criticism deserves to go to the player? Then again, how much criticism should be giddily heaped on the media? (Boy, do I give you guys raw meat or what?)

Discuss. (For my part, I dunno. I’m of the “if college f’ball players’ psyches are that damned fragile, why the Hell™ are they out there in the first place?” mindset.)

Let’s get on with the PFW. My (Fort Worth) Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets are back in action this week against the Kennedale Wildcats in Kennedale. Last week, the ‘Cats destroyed Azle, a team Heights just barely handled, by a score of 52-24. I’m going to go out on a limb (*cough*) and predict a Kennedale victory.

Saturday, Turner Gill’s UBuffalo Bulls travel to Ball State to play…uh, what is the mascot of Ball State anyway?

The Vegas line is BS by 16½…

CADET BEAVIS:  Hehheh, heh, hehheh, he said “BS”.

CADET BUTTHEAD:  Huh, huh, huhhuh, huh, huhhuh.

LSIK&T:  Shut up, you two.

…so as long as the Bulls can avoid losing by 31 or more, we’ll count it.

Saturday morning, second-ranked LSU has the Tulane Green Wave for breakfast. The line is 40, and it might get there unless Ryan Perrilloux plays, which will indicate that Les Miles is becoming an old softie.

Saturday afternoon, third-ranked Oklahoma takes their act on the road to Boulder to play Colorado. The Buffaloes are usually fairly tough at home, so the OU-minus-23 line might look a little misleading here. And if Bob Stoops decides to rest his starters for TU after the third quarter of this one, maybe it will be.

Saturday evening will find His Rudeness™ gnawing away at his fingernails in Ft. Worth as the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs are at home against the Colorado State Rams. CSU always brings a very physical team to Ft Worth, and usually the Frogs have been able to handle it. Then again, the Frogs usually had experience on offense and Tommy Blake on defense to counter whatever the Rams did. Neither one will be there this year (Blake’s out again on this mysterious “medical leave” thing), so this game is very much in doubt.

Sunday finds the Dallas Cowboys hosting Rams of another sort (the ones from St. Louis) at Texas Stadium.

Now, the ‘Boys are 3-0 and the Rams are 0-3, so this looks like a slam-dunk. But back on January 1, 2006, the Rams, who were already long out of it by then, came into Irving to play a Dallas team which still - mathematically, at least - had something for which to play, and the Rams promptly handed Dallas its ass on a platter (I had a mini-rant about it here). So before I jump on the Silver-and-Blue bandwagon, I wanna see an ass-whipping of the boys in gold and blue.

We’re back Monday for the recap. For now, I’ll entertain a general dogpile on Notre Dame…

The Good Guys™ took out another of Michael Moore-on’s Minutemen™ in Iraq.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S.-led forces have killed one of the most important leaders of al-Qaeda in Iraq, and recent similar operations have left the organization fractured, a top American commander said Friday.

“Abu Usama al-Tunisi was one of the most senior leaders … the emir of foreign terrorists in Iraq and part of the inner leadership circle,” said Brig. Gen. Joseph Anderson.

Al-Tunisi was a leader in helping bring foreign terrorists into the country and his death “is a key loss” to al-Qaeda leadership there, Anderson told a Pentagon news conference via videoconference from Baghdad.

Anderson said recent coalition operations also have helped cut in half the previous flow of foreign fighters into Iraq, which had been at about 60 to 80 a month.

He credited the work of the Iraqi Department of Border Enforcement and U.S. teams.

Unnamed sources state that Susan Sarandon & Tim Robbins are rumored to be making arrangements to attend the funeral and issue eulogies for the deceased. (Well, we just started the rumor, but at least we’re the first to report on it.)

F.E.T.E.

Yeah, it’s an old article, but truth is never “outdated“.

Underlying all “gun control” ideology is this one belief.” “Private citizens don’t need firearms because the police will protect them from crime.” That belief is both false and dangerous for two reasons.

First, the police cannot and do not protect everyone from crime. Second, the government and the police in most localities owe no legal duty to protect individuals from criminal attack. When it comes to deterring crime and defending against criminals, individuals are ultimately responsible for themselves and their loved ones. Depending solely on police emergency response means relying on the telephone as the only defensive tool. Too often, citizens in trouble dial 911 . . . and die.

Read the entire article and bookmark it for future ClueClubbings™ during Drooling Ungulate™ hunting season.

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.

Where we feel compelled to inform you that we have those nifty things on the left sidebar called ads (that would be the section called “Our Sponsors”), ads that help the Imperial Cash Flow, ads that we have carefully vetted in order to ensure only the very best quality for our LCs.

Also, they won’t break if you click on them. We promise.

Not to mention that we have some pretty darn amazing deals going on out there from time to time, deals that you might want to at least look at before you pass up on them.

Right now, for instance, we have two amazing books there. “Hard Corps” about a young ne’erdowell who turned his life around and became a True Blue American Marine Hero, and of course the latest from Bjorn Lomborg, “Cool It”, the same Bjorn Lomborg who has caused countless ulcers and hissy fits among the numbnut acolytes of the Goreacle with his actual scientific approach to Glowbull Wormening.

Just saying, is all.

We all already know that James Hansen, the NASA “scientist” that likes to get trotted out and proclaim the imminent doom of mankind due to Global Wormening, is a flaming liar. Not only because of his incessant, unscientific whining about the creed of the Church of the Gorebecile, but also because of his pathetic mewling about being “muzzled” by the Bu$hHitlerCheneyBurton Administration in spite of having appeared in at least 1,400 interviews (can I have some of that “muzzling” too, please?).

Now it turns out (h/t The Jawa Report) that he’s not only a lying liar telling flaming lies, he’s also a paid mercenary for none other than George “I Helped The Nazis During WWII” Soros.

How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen, a man billed as a lonely “NASA whistleblower” standing up to the mighty U.S. government, was really funded by Soros’ Open Society Institute , which gave him “legal and media advice”?

That’s right, Hansen was packaged for the media by Soros’ flagship “philanthropy,” by as much as $720,000, most likely under the OSI’s “politicization of science” program.

That may have meant that Hansen had media flacks help him get on the evening news to push his agenda and lawyers pressuring officials to let him spout his supposedly “censored” spiel for weeks in the name of advancing the global warming agenda.

$720,000?

No wonder that he suddenly “got religion.”

The Church of the Greenback™, apparently.

Oh well, we already knew that he was a common prostitute. The only difference is that now we know how much George Soros left on the nightstand next to the used condom.
