Sorry about the late news, but the MSM weren’t exactly all over this one, since it involves their favorite race-baiting scumbag mayor.

Looks like he wasn’t content to declare that Nawlins should be a “Rassenrein” “chocolate city” (honkies need not apply), now he’s promoting the “go to Nawlins and get murdered” brand as well. No, we shit you not:

Mayor Ray Nagin said he worries that slayings in the city make it seem dangerous, but news of such crimes “keeps the New Orleans brand out there.”

In a city where the tourism industry is the lifeblood of a fragile economy, the wave of violence threatens to derail efforts to bring visitors — and former residents — back. Yet Nagin, at a bricklaying ceremony Thursday, told reporters it’s a “two-edged sword.”

“It’s not good for us, but it also keeps the New Orleans brand out there, and it keeps people thinking about our needs and what we need to bring this community back,” he said. “Sure it hurts, but we have to keep working every day to make the city better.”

We’re not sure if we should recommend this shitbag for the Annual To Every Cloud, There Is A Silver Lining Award™, or if we should just recommend that he be involuntarily committed to a home for the terminally stupid and deranged.

So yep, according to Raycist Nagin, people getting brutally murdered is actually a Good Thing™, since it “keeps the brand name out there” and keeps people “thinking about what we need to bring our community back.”

Makes you wonder: If killings drop, will Raycist Nagin start roaming the streets gunning down random strangers to keep things on the right track?

Congrats, Nawlins residents, you’ve managed to re-elect a smear upon the stained sheets of humanity that is actually stupider than you are. Who’d have thunk?

Obligatory Disclaimer for our Nawlins LCs: Yes, we know that you didn’t elect him. If the shoe don’t fit, don’t wear it. Better still, use it to clobber the living snot out of the race baiters, welfare sows and assorted other criminals in and out of office that fuck up your fair city.

Also, we find it deeply disturbing that Nawlins has this reputation, because we’d dearly love to visit one day. It’s an historic city well worth a visit. If you have received your Interceptor Body Armor in the mail, of course ;-) Finally, don’t anybody get the idea that Nawlins is the most dangerous city to visit in the Empire. Washington DC still claims that “honor” and, not only is the likelihood that you’ll get mugged, mutilated, raped, murdered or all of the above much higher in DC, you’ll also get to enjoy the fact that the Nazi City Gummint of DC won’t let you defend yourself. At least Nawlins gives you permission to do THAT.

Filthy Harry Screed.

If douchebaggery were an Olympic event, your mere announcement that you intended to participate would be more than enough reason for the other contestants to simply stay at home and forfeit, for not even with their combined best efforts, no matter how despicably, singularly vile and repulsive they were could they ever possibly get within a lightyear of your colossally offensive fuckheadedness.

If being an oozing, painful chancre on humanity were a religion, you’d be the Grand Poobah of it. Cathedrals would be built and named after you and all other deities would resign in disgust, rather than risk ever being mentioned in the same sentence as you.

There is no organism so repulsive, so filthy, so abominable, so utterly foul that I wouldn’t rather french kiss it for hours on end than ever shake your hand, no lifeform so loathsome that I wouldn’t rather stuff it in my pants and have wild, uninhibited sex with it than ever be caught looking at you with anything more sympathetic than utter disgust.

You are a cancer upon the body politic in dire need of radiation therapy, a pathetic, useless waste of DNA, a sack of wrinkled skin so utterly bereft of redeeming features that your presence on the planet would give an alien race just cause should they desire to wipe us all out just to be safe, and anybody voting for you or your party are no different.

Thatisall.

We all bear witness to the decay of our traditional sense of community geographically. Some of us are fortunate to live in areas where good neighbors and communities exist, while many of us do not. Many of us are fortunate to have family close at hand (biological or extended), others not.

While Red and I don’t have the good fortune to reside in a geographic good-neighbor community and don’t have family nearby, the spiritual part of the concept we’ve found right here. It is possible for them to exist in the virtual world as we can communicate freely our thoughts, joys and sorrows with others that we freely chose. There are endless stories of folks making friends via the Intertubewebnet™ only to meet and find it doesn’t work in the real world. I was fortunate enough, along with the rest of y’all attending the Tampa Rott-Fest 2007, to find something different here, something special. The majority of us meeting in the real-world for the first time were astounded that it was merely a physical extension of our little virtual community here. Something very, very special and wonderful. Friends already, the weekend (entirely too short) made even closer friends out of our little gang. We all went home the better for it too. My own sense of belonging to something both rare and unusual in our aloof society was immensely reinforced and grown. I indeed had found a group of people that I’d gladly share a home, community, hot-tub and a meal with anytime, anywhere, anyplace and anywhen. True friends.

Last week found me at the absolute bottom of what’s been a rough year, to say the least. Everyone has a personal breaking point and us male types are conditioned to plod on, without asking for help, call it stubborn, pride, stupid or all three, it just is. The lovely wife, knowing I was snapping and unable to provide the “guy perspective” made a late night call to the Boss. He answered on the second ring and instantly knew something was seriously amiss. We spoke at length and he once again yanked me out of the funk. G-d Bless you for that Brother. I repeatedly insisted that he not take the situation to the pack for help, but being who he is, and y’all know the rest.

The response from the Empire’s LCs was astounding is rather an understatement. We both had a good cry when the help came rolling in, just in time. I don’t feel worthy of the support (that pride thing again) that y’all came up with, but G_d in His infinite wisdom, moved the hearts and minds of our friends here on the Rott to pitch in, when one of our own hollered “Hey Rube”.

We can’t possibly pay it back, but we all can pay it forward, and we will. We reap what we sow, and you our friends, have sown seeds that really helped pull us through a tight spot. As my late grandmother would’ve said “You just got another star in your Heavenly Crown”. All of you.

Thank you all for the prayers and well-wishes too, we sure did say our prayers in thanks to Him for our friends here at the Rott.

G_d Bless You All, our friends.

JB and Country-Red

Sorry about the constant downtimes on the site.

Apparently there’s some issue with the new server not being able to handle the load, and since there appears to be no other places to move it to, I’m left in a bit of a pickle, since I obviously can’t run the site if it’s down due to overload 85% of the time. There wouldn’t be much point in that, now would there? On the other hand, I don’t have several hundred bucks a month to pump into a dedicated server, so that ain’t an option either.

I suppose I could just pack it in, but I’m too stubborn for that so I don’t see that happening.

Anyway, in case you’re one of the lucky ones managing to get through in the few windows while the server is not overloaded, that’s what’s been going on. I’ll figure out what to do next somehow.

Thatisall.

UPDATE: Things will be much better soon, so please bear with us. A different and much more powerful server is getting ready for the 25th and, in the meantime, our hosts will see if splitting some of the resources over a couple of servers temporarily won’t speed things up a bit, just to get us through the next few days a bit smoother. But, regardless, the 25th is when the move is.

Once again, we apologize for the intermittent downtimes and thank you for coming back regardless.

Also, I should point out that Dave is kind enough to host the Bark on his server, for free, until everything is back up to speed. Just click on the link at the top as you used to and you’ll be taken there. You’ll have to log in over there as well, but it’s the same username and password that you use here.

THANKS, DAVE!

UPDATE the Second: In case anybody sees this, the move is now confirmed. It will be this evening, commencing at 9PM Eastern. Hang in there, and see you on the other side.

UPDATE the Third: Something popped up last night at the server farm (those things happen), so the move has been delayed to tonight, 10-26-2007.

Our thanks to the two or three readers who still persistently and loyally keep checking back. Our thanks and our apologies.

And it didn’t help one bit that Morgan Stanley unloaded their entire holding in the rag, nor that Merrill Lynch dumped a huge load as well.

So beat the rush, unload stocks in al-Jazeera on the Hudson today or you might end up holding nothing but a reasonable facsimile of the birdcage liner itself: A stack of worthless paper.

Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of fuckwads.

…but the rest of you can read it as well. Perchance you can direct a few liberal morons to it or make a slideshow that even they ought to be able to understand. Just don’t use big words. Words with more than two syllables, I mean.

Afterwards, the correct response to questions will be to throw the offender off a tall building. Keep the gene pool clean and all that.

Thanks to LC Mope, who IM’ed us with this one last night. It looks like the al-Beeb is in for a rough ride.

Mr Thompson will tell the BBC Trust today that 2,000 employees — almost a tenth of the workforce — will be sacked in an attempt to find £2 billion in budget cuts.

The decision is controversial, with senior broadcasters such as John Humphrys and Jeremy Paxman criticising the management for planning to reduce news and current affairs while finding funds for less popular digital channels and internet sites.

Humphrys is still trying to figure out what this whole “Internet” thing is all about, and is expected to do so right after he fully groks electricity, hot and cold running water and who won WWI.

Both BBC managers and broadcasting unions said they felt industrial action was looming. One source predicted the corporation could face the worst strikes for a decade with major programmes likely to be taken off the air.

Leaving Hajis all over the world with only al-Jazeera to lean on for a sympathetic ear, at least for a while.

How positively dreadful.As he outlines his cost-cutting blueprint, Mr Thompson will appeal to the BBC Trust, which replaced the board of governors, to stand firm in the face of sustained strike action.

One senior BBC source admitted that a strike looked certain but that management would not back down in the face of union threats.

A senior broadcaster, who declined to be named, predicted a furious response from even the most moderate employees to the compulsory redundancies among the 23,000 work force.

“There will be a strike. That is definite,” he said. “Some big programmes will go off the air.

“It’s already been a shocker of a year with the rows over phone-in cheating and the Queen. Now they are going to sack 2,000 people. Management have a big fight on their hands.”

And unions, predictably, respond by threatening not to do the jobs that they’re afraid of losing. Good. That ought to save a few pennies as well.

Give us more, O Emperor! »

NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. soldier who said his Christian beliefs compelled him to love his enemies, not kill them, has been granted conscientious objector status and honorably discharged, a civil liberties group said on Tuesday.

Capt. Peter Brown — who served in Iraq for more than a year and was a graduate of the elite U.S. military academy West Point — said in a statement issued by the New York Civil Liberties Union that he was relieved the Army had recognized his beliefs made it impossible for him to serve.

[…]

Brown said he had no conflict between his faith and military service until after he graduated from West Point in 2004 and began to study scripture and his belief.

Keep studying, my friend, and one day you might even understand it.

As you may have noticed, we have experienced intermittent outages on the site over the last days.

It has been determined that this was due to some in-”fighting” over resources on the server and, as a result, our gracious hosts have decided to move us to a brand spanking new server with plenty of room to play on.

Of course such a move isn’t quite as simple as it sounds, particularly since the Empire is a big affair so, beginning at 9 PM EDT tonight, you may experience some more weirdness as everything is packed, moved and unpacked again in the new digs. It will also mean that if you post after that time, your comment and/or post may just miss the moving van, which will mean that once the move is over and the new place is open for business, your words of wisdom will be gone.

I’ll be posting an “all clear” as soon as everything’s done, which will be when we unpack the sparkly and baptize the new palace properly. Just a note: Please, please PLEASE try to keep the bloodstains off the marble this time, will ya? Once the sticky stuff congeals, it’s living HELL to get it off again.

We now return to our irregularly scheduled programming.

Thatisall…

UPDATE:ALL CLEAR!!!

Alright, we’re done. It turned out to be a bigger job than expected, but things should be running on all cylinders again around here. You may unfasten your seatbelt and, in case you managed to do so, now would be a good time to wipe the spilled drinks off of your neighbors’ laps.

Meanwhile, Congress is busy extending the FISA nonsense that led to the search for Alex Jimenez being pointlessly delayed for 10 hours while the hajis were sharpening the scimitars.

The only surprise here is that the Dem Cong didn’t try to attach an amendment requiring our intel people to also inform the terrorists ahead of operations that we were on to them by using the words “we’re going to close our eyes and count to a hundred, and then it’s ‘ready or not, here we come’.”
