We still love you Bill Bennett

I'm sure by now most of you who pay attention to the news have heard the liberal media and commies all up in arms over a comment made by "Morning in America" radio talk show host Dr. Bill Bennett. The libs yelling "he's a racist, he wants all black babies aborted" blah blah blah. If you actually care to hear word-for-word what I heard when listening to the show that day, read on. Some things are taken so out of context, its disgusting.

From the September 28 broadcast of Salem Radio Network's Bill Bennett's Morning in America:

CALLER: I noticed the national media, you know, they talk a lot about the loss of revenue, or the inability of the government to fund Social Security, and I was curious, and I've read articles in recent months here, that the abortions that have happened since Roe v. Wade, the lost revenue from the people who have been aborted in the last 30-something years, could fund Social Security as we know it today. And the media just doesn't -- never touches this at all.

BENNETT: Assuming they're all productive citizens?

CALLER: Assuming that they are. Even if only a portion of them were, it would be an enormous amount of revenue.

BENNETT: Maybe, maybe, but we don't know what the costs would be, too. I think as -- abortion disproportionately occur among single women? No.

CALLER: I don't know the exact statistics, but quite a bit are, yeah.

BENNETT: All right, well, I mean, I just don't know. I would not argue for the pro-life position based on this, because you don't know. I mean, it cuts both -- you know, one of the arguments in this book Freakonomics that they make is that the declining crime rate, you know, they deal with this hypothesis, that one of the reasons crime is down is that abortion is up. Well --

CALLER: Well, I don't think that statistic is accurate.

BENNETT: Well, I don't think it is either, I don't think it is either, because first of all, there is just too much that you don't know. But I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down. That would be an impossible, ridiculous, and morally reprehensible thing to do, but your crime rate would go down. So these far-out, these far-reaching, extensive extrapolations are, I think, tricky.

crazy students

I thought all the congestion and the sneezing were a result of seasonal allergies.....I was wrong. I just came home from school sick. Damn my grubby students with no hygiene!

So yesterday I had a student get a 10 day out-of-school suspension for bringing a BB gun to school and was showing it to friends in the hallway. He's an "A" student, what was he thinking?? Now he's facing explusion but I don't think it should be that severe. He's a 13 year old freshman....I think the huge suspension and all the zeros he's getting is punishment enough.

Then I had a sophomore girl in PE who frequently complains come up to me and say "I can't play ultimate frisbee, is it okay that I sit out?" I said "why, whats wrong?" And she said "I have really bad cramps." So of course I ask her if she has her period and she says she's 15 days late. I tell her that its common for teens to be irregular but then she says "well I might be pregnant." Good lord, these kids grow up too fast. The period before that I had a girl ask to sit out because she felt dizzy....she told me she started on "The Patch."

Finally, this is a bit gross but I want you guys to see what I deal with every day. One of my students came up to me on Wednesday and wants to talk to me in private. She asks "Is it bad that I Naired the inside of my vagina?" Ummm, YEAH, its not meant to go inside. So I tell her that and she says "oooooh, that would explain why I itch so bad down there." EWWWWWW. This is the same girl who seriously asked me last year "does anal sex make your butt bigger?". I said no (while thinking maybe your butthole) and she says "oh thank god." EWWWWW

Gotta love being a Health and PE teacher! I need a nap to sleep off this bug.

spin, spin and more spin

I got this forward from a commie teacher friend of mine.

On Presidents and Hurricanes:

President: Nixon

Danger: Category-5 Hurricane Camille (August 1969)
Area: About the same area as that affected by Katrina
Response: Nixon prepared the National Guard in advance, ordering rescue ships from Tampa, FL and Houston, TX to stand waiting along with over a thousand regular military, 24+ helicopters to assist the Coast Guard and National Guard about as soon as the hurricane passed.

President: Bush the Elder
Danger: Hurricane Andrew (August 92)
Area: Florida
Response: In the middle of a re-election campaign, Bush ceased campaigning the day before the hurricane, went to Washington, and assembled one of the largest military forces ever mustered on U.S. soil. Seven thousand National Guard and 22,000 regular military were sent inwith the necessary equipment shortly after the hurricane passed through. (holy Jesus, did they just say something nice about a Bush?)

President: Clinton
Danger: Category-3 Hurricane Floyd (September 1999)
Area: Virginia and Carolinas
Response: Meeting with China's president Jiang in New Zealand, Clinton immediately declared the hurricane-affected areas as federal disasters, allowing the military and National Guard to move in and help. Clinton flew home immediately, one day before the hurricane hit(got a quick blow job), to help coordinate the rescue.

President: Bush the Lesser (real mature)
Danger: Category-5 Hurricane Katrina (August 2005) (actually it was a 4 when it made landfall)
Area: Gulf Coast
Response: National Guard troops are down about 8,000 members because they are in Iraq with much of the necessary rescue equipment needed. (untrue, there are a total of 11,000 National Guard in Louisiana, only 3,000 are in Iraq.) Bush was on vacation, riding his bike for two hours the day before the hurricane lands. (what would you have him do? Its a state matter at this point) So for every hurricane from this moment on we have to deploy 1,000's of troops just in case? Deploy military ships? ) On the day Katrina landed, Bush attended a birthday party for John McCain. The levees began to crack. (the levees cracked the next day. Katrina wasn't a bad hurricane at all and NOLA would have been alright if the levees didn't break. Is President Bush supposed to have freaking ESP now? It's the state's responsibility to make sure those levees are strong enough, not his.) While emergency1.5-ton sandbags were ready to be placed to steady the levee and absorb water, there were insufficient numbers of helicopters and pilots to send them before the levees break. (once again, not a federal issue) Again, the mayor of New Orleans, pleaded for federal-level assistance and got none. (why the #### didn't he allow the Red Cross in to help? Or use the buses that were fueled and ready to evacuate people....oh right, his answer was "we didn't have enough drivers." Horse####. There was some 20 year old kid who hotwired a bus, drove it to New Orleans, picked up stranded people and drove them all the way to Houston. Good job Nagin, pass the buck, so typical of liberals) Bush went to San Diego to play guitar with a country singer and end his vacation early -- but not until the next day, because he had tickets to a San Diego Padres game.

**God I can't stand commies. How did I ever like that friend of mine? Funny, now he's dating a cute, blonde, conservative.....good. But I don't know how she's doing it! He was a military man too, and is anti-gun, why oh why are you a liberal? I just want to walk upstairs, bust into his classroom, grab one side of his head and smash it full force into the chalkboard and then just walk out the door. Maybe I'll just put his email address on a spam list.**

Ohh Billy Boy

This is good. I was listening to Rush earlier and had to summarize what I heard. You have to read this article from the Washington Post. Rush called it the first "Written Lap Dance" he's ever seen. Its disgusting and makes me want to scoop my eyes out with spoons. I know that makes you want to read it soooo bad, but humor me.

Bill Clinton, Beyond the White House

The best quote: "You know, I told this to these people gathered at my forum over the weekend, I said, 'We are so arrogant because we are obsessed with the present. I've reached an age now where it doesn't matter whatever happens to me. I just don't want anybody to die before their time anymore."

My brain is simply cooked from the long week full of annoying students so instead of trying to regurgitate what I heard, I found it online so you can read it for yourself. Its hilarious, I promise. Clinton is such an idiot. I cannot stand another one in office. I will do EVERYTHING in my power to help keep that from happening. Anyways, here's what Rush had to say in response to Clinton's words.

RUSH: "Now there are two ways of interpreting this. One way of interpreting this is that in his previous years, he was okay with people dying before their time. The other way of interpreting this is that he wants to do something positive to help people as far as their health is concerned, because only now in his personal circumstances is he realizing here how little he did when he was president. For example, he says, "I just don't want anybody to die before their time anymore." Yeah, like those 800,000 were killed in the genocide in Rwanda, or like the one thousand, the 792 to 1,000 that died in the Chicago heat wave in 1995, or all the Americans who died in terrorist attacks during the 1990s, or how about innocent people being slaughtered in Iraq, they died before their time.

And so now Bill Clinton just doesn't want anybody to die before their time anymore. I have a friend who actually saw this story before I did, and he said, "Rush, I wiped off all the vomit on my keyboard and screen after reading the most arrogantly fawning elitist puff piece by Tina Brown in the Washington Post on Bill Clinton. I can't print it all on this page because the dry heaves just start up all over again, so I'll just focus on the very end of this embarrassing adolescent breathless prose," and that's the money quote that I just gave you. But this declaration, "I just don't want anybody to die before their time anymore," that captured Tina's truly tiny imagination. She felt so strongly about this comment that she gave it Albert Schweitzer and Mother Teresa status. "

Just got caught outside with my PE class by a horrible storm....lookie, right in the red above Chicago near Wisconsin, thats us!

Now I have to go sit outside in that for the next 3 hours for practices and soccer games. Damn soccer teams will play in ANYTHING.

Random Teacher stuff

So this week has been really random. I was working the varsity football game over the weekend and saw this kid get taken out by our kicker...lets just say his body spun around but his ankle stayed in the same place. We get over there, yeah, it was facing the wrong way! We call the team doctor onto the field and he reduces it back into the correct place. We put him on a stretcher, got him in the ambulance, and off he went. It was cool! Turns out he tore all the major ligaments in his ankle, as well as a fibula fracture. Oh and 2 concussions during the game as well....none of them were our team though, thank goodness.

I also had to break up a catfight in our girl's PE locker room. Weave and braids flying everywhere. Probably about some guy, who the hell knows.

Then, I had a kid come into my PE class with his hand wrapped up and in a sling. I asked what happened and he replied "I cut my flexor tendon with a knife." Turns out his friend and him got wasted and his friend sliced his finger. Idiots.

Soooo, thats my week so far. I've also noticed that the hispanic girls are now braiding and cornrowing their hair. This was typically a "black thing" at my school but now its crossing over to the Latino population. Interesting.......

Alright, time to go to a friend's grandfather's wake.

Semper Fi

My Marine friend is safe :) We got word that his batallion was pulled out of Iraq and is in a "safe place." (my post last month)

He should be back in the USA within the next few weeks for debriefing and psychological testing and sent home by the time I fly out to my alma mater for Homecoming! Hopefully I'll get to see him!

I said a huge "thank you" prayer to the big man upstairs. I thanked God for watching over him and keeping him alive while many of his friends died all around him. His batallion saw a lot of action and firefights and suffered heavy casualties. He was injured but is alright. They are all heroes to me and I want to thank all of you out there for your kind words when I've freaked out about his safety.

Anti-War folks, please enlighten us.....

I'm watching "Pearl Harbor." It's funny how I get angry at different people depending on what war movie is on. (The Japanese piss me off right now, Somalies during Blackhawk Down, Vietnamese in We Were Soldiers, etc.)

These are my favorite quotes from this movie and are fitting when speaking about the War on Terror:



My sister, Ranting Republican and I were just discussing the movie and we're pissed that they cut out "jap bastards" and replaced it with "bums." Why? You can say "Jap" on TV....and you can say "Bastard" on TV.....they bomb us and the media won't let us say "Jap Bastards?" Bastards.

The other thing we were discussing is the parallel between the start of WWII and the War on Terror. Japan attacked us, not Germany. Should we have not gone into Germany to stop the brutal dictator Adolf Hitler? He was killing millions of his own people, not attacking America. But we felt it was wrong and attacked the Nazi's. Bin Laden and his crew based in Afganistan attacked America, not Iraq (even though I still think otherwise.) We attacked them back (like we did the Japs), and then decided to go after Saddam Hussein, a brutal dictator who violently killed hundreds of thousands of his own people...some even for sport. He tested biological and chemical weapons on his own people. Please tell me what is the difference? Ranting Republican and I would love to know.

I think I started a gang fight

Yeah so in Health class this week we were talking about violence and gangs. I passed out this informational pamphlet about gangs: why they join, what to look out for, what are the dangers, how to recognize gangs, where to go for help, blah blah blah.

WELL, there were examples on what gang grafitti looks like and this one idiot student of mine decided to draw it all over his books and folders and wear certain gang colors. Needless to say, the gang did not appreciate the "poser" and then the kid started throwing up gang symbols to a rival gang. Sooooo, there was a gang fight and when the kid was busted they searched his bag and found my gang packet. He told the deans "Miss #### taught me how to draw them." Soooo, I get a visit from the deans and have to explain myself and the fact I got permission to pass out the pamphlet from our school policeman.

The kid gets an out-of-school suspension for 4 days (cannot make up the work he missed)....comes back yesterday and says "give me some extra credit." And of course I was thinking "are you flipping kidding me? You make MY life hell and now YOU want extra credit for being a moron?" AHHHHHHH, they're killing me slowly.

Happy Constitution Day!!!

"We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

"All America will unite in the simultaneous recitation of the Preamble to the United States Constitution all over the world on Friday September 16, 2005, with the nation's schools and the military at home and overseas. (Our whole school receited The Preamble simutaneously in our classrooms via intercom...led by our Principal, it was awesome! BUT my students memorized it in 7th grade using the song from Schoolhouse Rock so they had to sing it.)

President George W. Bush signed a bill on December 8th, 2004 (public law 108-447) which designates every September 17th as Constitution Day. However, Constitution Day, Inc. has been celebrating for the past eight years with the simultaneous recitation of the Preamble.

General Tommy Franks will lead the Preamble which has previously been led by President George Bush Sr., U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, Chief Justice of Alabama Roy Moore, and Governor of Pennsylvania Edward Rendell.

The celebration will begin at 11 AM Pacific/12 PM Mountain/1 PM Central/2 PM Eastern time, with the simultaneous recitation of the Preamble to the US Constitution."

Judge Roberts hearing

Fascinating....he's good. Him and Spector are making the Libs look ridiculous. I love that he's using Justice Ginsburg's words:
"no hints, no forecasts, no previews."

What an ignorant MF'er......PART DEUX

In case you missed it, I had a bit of a tirade on Kayne old post. Well, I decided to go a round 2.

Have you heard the latest backlash on West? HAAA HAAA HAAA, God bless NFL fans....Kayne West was one of the performers for the NFL Kickoff Show, along with some other America-hating commie bands. His performance in LA was beamed via satellite to the Raiders-Patriots game......and guess what happened? He was loudly BOOED by the crowd for the majority of his number. In NEW ENGLAND, can you believe it? (other bands like Green Day and Maroon 5 that have come out against the President and the War were booed too). I guess the big guns in the NFL haven't realized that showcasing Bush-Bashers at football games on 9/11 isn't well-received. God I love good, wholesome NFL fans :)

Today I was just informed about another piece of donkey doodie that came out of Kayne West's mouth. This is good and so doesn't suprise me:

"The concept of AIDS alone -- my parents always told me ... that it's just a man-made disease in the first place that was placed in Africa just like crack was placed in the black community to break up the Black Panther party." -- Kanye West, spouting urban legends as historical fact in an interview on MTV during the Live 8 concerts.

Its comments like that Kayne's that make people more racist, I believe that.

I think about 9.11.01 every day of my life. It has forever changed me. I will never forget the images I saw or the emotions I felt....they are burned into my soul along with an intense hatred of terrorists but also a deep love for our country and all the everyday heroes in it. This a poster I found that you have to check out. 9/11 victims.

I was out at the bars last night in downtown Chicago but I just didn't feel right. I would space out while sipping my beer and think about this day 4 years ago. My friends thought I was nuts and a couple of them even forgot about what day it is. I've cried today. I'm angry today. I'm proud today. Here is my 9/11 story:

I remember leaving my Microbiology class at Ohio University and turning on the radio. All I heard was "some plance hit the World Trade Center, it might have been a private plane." I thought to myself "thats unfortunate, I hope everyone's okay" and I went to get a bagel. Just as I got home to eat my onion bagel with scallion cream cheese I turned on the TV and saw the second plane it. Then the Pentagon, then Flight 93 in Pennyslvania. It was so surreal.

All of our classes were cancelled and I just sat on my couch waiting to hear each bit of information and read the scrolling news on the bottom of the screen. Friends came over and we all watched all night long. The only time I left my house was to fill my car up with gas. Word was getting around that gas prices were going to spike from $1.10 to $3.00 a gallon (haa, haa) and the line was an hour long. I felt like I was in a movie.....everyone was out of their cars, windows down, blasting President Bush's address to the Nation. Nobody talked, we all just sat on our cars and listened. He said we will go after the terrorists and the countries that harbor them. HE HAS KEPT HIS PROMISE.

I made it back to see the tail end of the speech. I remember crying that day and also feeling proud because for that day, there were no Republicans and Democrats, no black or white, we were all simply AMERICANS.

I am fascinated to know everyone's stories about where they were and what they did on 9/11. Can you share your stories?

(p.s tonight at 8pm, 10pm and 12am (C.T) on the Discovery Channel there is a documentary on Flight 93, titled "The Flight that Fought Back." It is a reinactment of the brave men and women that took on terrorists and crashed the plane into the ground. Afterwards the families of the people lost are interviewed. Watch it!)


Originally uploaded by Toribear5.
People all to often forget about the Pentagon and all the people that died there. I went there 3 months after 9/11 and it was gut-wrenching.

Never Forget.

The only good thing about 9/11 was the terrorists died too and are burning in the fiery depths of hell.

Never Forget.

THE BOONDOCK SAINTS. What a great freaking movie. Ranting Republican and Crossingguard69 have been telling me to watch this forever and I just finished. The brothers are hot, Willem Dafoe is amazing and its got lots of action, blood and death.......just my style.

I am a great American

I was on my way to our Jr./Sr. campus to cover a soccer tournament when I saw something red, white and blue on a small stick in the middle of a busy 4-lane road. It was being run over and I realized it was an American Flag. So I safely swerved my car onto the shoulder, ran out into traffic to retrieve the flag (I used to play Frogger, no problem!) and then I ran with the flag flapping in the breeze back to my car. I noticed a couple people gave me a "thumbs up" and a couple clapped for me.

I cleaned it up and not it is being displayed on my patio at my house. GO USA!

(disclaimer, I don't know flag etiquette very well so if was supposed to be burned or something, I didn't.)

damn this movie

I was all set for bed at 10pm, and just checked my tv to see what TiVo was so thoughtfully recording for me and it was TITANIC. I love that movie. ((insert lame joke about what a loser I am here.)) It was the very beginning, damn it. I promised myself, "just until Jack and Rose meet." Then it was "just until Jack teaches Rose how to honk a loogie", then it was "just until the I'm flying part", then it was "just until they screw in the back of the car," then it was "just until they hit the iceberg," then it was finally, "just until she leaps off the lifeboat to stay with Jack." My sister Ranting and I usually only watch the first half of the movie b/c the rest is depressing.

How hot is that kiss in the picture? Seriously one of the best on-screen kisses of all time (I do fancy the upside down raining Spiderman kiss and the kiss at the end of The Cutting Edge). When I saw TITANIC for the first time (of 3) in the theater, I balled my eyes out...I'm talking like the Mighty Mississippi. It starts when Jack and Rose are staring into each other's eyes while she's being lowered into the water, then she jumps back on and then the waterworks really begin when they're slowly becoming ice cubes in the ocean. I remember not really not crying for them, but inserting myself into the story and thinking "sniff sniff, nobody would do that for me! They'd climb on top of my head to keep themselves afloat." And then by the 3rd time I thought "Jack and Rose are dumb, they could've built a much better floatation device or at least spread their weight out better so both of them could've fit on the piece of wood."

I don't know what about this damn movie has me so captivated. I don't even like Leonardo DiCaprio and think Billy Zane is way hotter. All I know is that her clothes are fabulous and I died my hair even more red than it already is after that movie. Damn this movie, now its late and I'll be exhausted tomorrow.

I'm not really a crier either....but there are some that really get to's a few: THE NOTEBOOK (holy crap), MY LIFE (omg), LOVE STORY, BLACKHAWK DOWN, LAST OF THE MOHICANS, E.T.(I'll be right here) , and MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE.

My question to everyone........what movies have made you cry? If you need something to jog your here

"On this Labor Day, I proudly join my fellow citizens in saluting our Nation's working men and women. As we celebrate the historic role of our nation's free labor movement, we are reminded that workers have contributed as much to America's social greatness as they have to our economic strength...

What an ignorant MF'er

Talk about a stupid ignorant MF'er. I saw the hack job he did at the Katrina Relief Benefit and I'd like everyone else to see it. He cannot string 2 intelligent sentences together, yet makes millions rapping. He goes off script and of course, big shock, has to Bush-Bash. Typical. Click here and then go to Sept. 2nd "Kayne West goes off script." I swear to god my special ed students make more sense than this idiot. (I love my special ed kids so don't get huffy.)

Please allow me to quote: "George Bush doesn't care about black people, they've been given permission to go down there and shoot us."

Uhhh, first of all thats total horseshit and everyone with pea size brain knows that. I'm sure President Bush told the national guard "Find every lousy pathetic nigger and open fire. I hate those goddamn filty niggers." Give me a break. The only way the National Guard (many of which are black) would EVER shoot at someone....would be at those pathetic crazies who are firing AK's at them...while they are trying to rescue them. Unbelieveable. President Bush has more blacks and minorities in his administration than any other past administration. There is no "shoot-to-kill" order on looters.....although that would put a stop to the looting (finding, whatever the hell is politically correct), rape, murders and fires real fast.

Maybe the real racist is Hurricane Katrina! She's the one who picked predominantly black cities to blow to smitherines. But then again, she tore through white cities in Florida first so I guess she's an equal opportunity killer.

I was just about to head downtown to see some old college friends and party at a piano bar, but saw an article on this and got sooooo freaking enraged, I could spit nails. Kayne West is disgusting and competely classless. If I were Mike Myers, I would have immediately kicked him in the balls, then elbow him in the solar-plexes, followed by a swift punch to the throat so I never have to hear his lying mouth ever again.

Whew, that helped, my pulse has steadied.......I'm done, time to go drink :)

Woah Nelly

I am going back to my alma mater, Ohio University for Homecoming in October.I should have booked my flight over the weekend, b/c look at the fluctuations!

From Chicago O'Hare to Columbus International Airport (total cost with taxes):

Sunday $108
Tuesday $187
Thursday $154 (I gambled and bought it)
Friday $216

Freezing gas prices???

Libs, please answer this question thats eating away at my brain: Many libs say that Bush went to war in Iraq for oil. If we went into Iraq for oil, where is it?

Now gas prices are spiking all over the country....its $3.29 by me in the Chicago suburbs, $3.75 in the city, and as much as $6 in Atlanta.

There has been talk of freezing gas prices, is this a good idea? I'm no expert on business but isn't this a classic case of supply and demand? Why is it any suprise the prices went up? The supply is low, thus the demand is higher. If we were to freeze gas prices, wouldn't that make everyone go to the pump to fill up all at once? If I knew that the US were going to freeze prices, I'd run right over to fill up while it lasted. But now, I filled up on Tuesday when it was $2.66, I only drive to and from work (14 mi/day total) and am doing my part to conserve.

From the UK Daily Telegraph: "Steve Forbes, the billionaire business publisher, predicted that the oil bubble will burst inside a year, and the price will plunge as the impact of Hurricane Katrina sent the price of oil soaring to new record levels. "He spoke as Katrina shut down almost all the flow from the Gulf of Mexico, which provides over a quarter of the US oil. He said, 'I'll make a bold prediction. In 12 months you're going to see oil down to 35 or $40 a barrel. It's a huge bubble. I don't know what's going to pop it but eventually it will pop. You cannot go against supply and demand. You cannot go against the fundamentals forever."

Any thoughts?

Capitalists, not Environmentalists will rebuild the cities

El it even if you loathe him:

"the people who make this country work." When you turn on your television and you look at the people rebuilding New Orleans and Gulfport and Biloxi, Mississippi, those are not going to be environmentalists. You won't see the Robert F. Kennedy, Jrs., or any of these others from these well heeled nonprofit groups rebuilding New Orleans in Gulfport and Biloxi. Do you know who it's going to be? It's going to be the military. It will be construction companies and their employees. It will be hotels and restaurants and grocery stores and the like. It will be the very capitalists that make this country work; it will be the very people that make this country work. It will not be the environmentalists who detest these people. It'll be the Wal-Marts of the world. It'll be the Anheuser-Busches. It will be the Ford Motor Company. All of these institutions the left despises, that's who you'll see rebuilding these cities. You won't see one person from the Sierra Club there. You will not see one person from the Environmental Resources Defense Fund there. You wouldn't see any environmentalist there. You'll see them on TV, whining and moaning about things and complaining like they always do.
