Bristol Track Walk

On Saturday of Bristol weekend, the Nascar Foundation is sponsoring a Bristol Track Walk. To register, a $30 donation is required. I was just wondering if any BTB that will be in attendance would be interested in participating. Let me know if there is any interest. We can even create a team (may I suggest the BTownBoyz) and possibly get the Shadyside gang involved. Click here for details.

another BTB souvenir for the future BTBcave

last fall, at the bristol night race, we were lucky enough to get an autographed budweiser poster from the budweiser girls. i think you got it if you bought a 6-pack of over-priced bud, but they were hot and we probably weren't very sober, and they'd autograph it. here is the picture.

yesterday, BTVJGJHo and i ended up at hooters, and we got our latest souvenir for the BTBcave (whenever it gets around to being bought). here's the new one we got from jenna at hooter's..

thanks jenna!

Who Knew Willy was German (or is it Polish)?

I was stumbling along today and came across another site for 'worst album covers.' As I scrolled down the page, I found one and thought to myself, 'Hey! He looks familiar." But judge for yourself...

Was Eddie Griffin...

driving the car?

5 Polyps Down...

One head to go!!!

Also, thanks to Republicans, the people's work (namely, Iraq) hasn't been accomplished due to the Republicans stalling every chance they get. In the end, the Republicans will say the Democrats had no plan (even though it is them who actually prevented any of their measures from passing). Dirty politics have been stooped to the next lowest level. Thank the Republicans for bringing baby-like, bickering, politics to a new level of disgust.

BTBz Dating Service

I know most of the BTBz are slowly taking the plunge into marriage. And there's only a few single BTBz left (you know who you are.) HOWEVER, I have single-handily come up with the perfect solution to Z's eternal happiness. Oh, and never forget this. Um... yeah, but watch out for this.

Get out your duct tape, plastic, flashlight, and radio because Cheney is now in charge (like he never wasn't). He will suspend the Constitution (wait, he already has) and set himself up as Supreme Leader by 3:00.

Time to Get Out

Why are we there? The Iraqis don't want us there. Soldiers are being blown up on a daily basis. Our troops, under orders and severe stress, are committing heinous acts. Every day the death toll rises.

How do we get out? The Bush & Chaney Administration are not gonna allow that to happen (admit failure?). The Republicans in Congress, despite some realizing the truth, are still blocking any real chance to START the end.

The Iraqis live in fear, not in prosperity, like a lot had before the invasion. There were schools, colleges, hospitals, electricity, oil. Women were able to go to school (doesn't seem like some Muslim state, huh). What do the people of Iraq NOT have now? Schools, colleges (they are there, but the faculty and students are DISAPPEARING), hospitals (they are there, but the doctors are disappearing), electricity (they have no OIL to fuel the power plants), oil (they have no ELECTRICITY to run the oil plants). Yes, the surge has fixed all those problems.

Will there be change? After the election, maybe. Bush will pawn it off on a DEMOCRATIC President (or, I hope, Republican Ron Paul). Of course, Conservatives will use the eventual disintegration of Iraq as talking points and spin to better a political cause, not caring what really happens to our soldiers and other human beings. Hopefully, the truth comes out that shows this Administration dwarfing the Nixon Admin when it comes to deceitfulness and crony ism.

Will we as a people stand up and cast these heathens back to their Bible's Hell? No.
Just keep cramming unhealthy, hormone rich, antibiotic saturated, over sugared, super caffeinated, vitamin free, shit down our mouths as we watch mindless, exploitive, lowest common denominator television on our over sized couch and say to ourselves, "what can I do?".

Real vs. Synthetic

...so you thought Guitar Hero was cool.

Another one bites the dust

This may be a shock to some people; Christy and I have gotten married. Yes, married. We got married Wednesday and today are heading up to Put-In-Bay for a long weekend. The hassle of planning an event was just too much for us so we decided to just get the ceremony over with quickly. We will be planning a Valley party plus maybe a cbus thang. Details to come; must get on the road.

Bellaire Couple Injured in Pool Collapse

This just in to the BTBz Newsroom... Erin Tobin's (a.k.a. preggers) parents were swimming in their pool earlier Monday afternoon when it collapsed. Unofficial reports indicate that Lori's boob popped out and James lost his swim trunks. When reached for comment, James indicated 'she had to grab my pecker to save herself.' (btw, I'm not making that quote up.) Anyway, here's News9's video coverage and here's WTRF's story.

What happened to the George Bush who insisted on honest government?

By Joseph L. Galloway | McClatchy Newspapers

Why is it that the Bush administration, in its dying throes, looks remarkably more like an organized crime ring than one of the arms of the American government? A poorly organized and run crime ring, truly, but a crime ring nonetheless.

Why do I keep remembering the George Bush that I actually once voted for when he first ran for president — the one who talked of bringing in an administration that would look more like the face of America and of giving us a government whose appointees would be honest, upright, fair and moral.

Yes, that's the one. What happened to him? Where did that George Bush go? When did he go over to The Dark Side? What enticements did Vice President Darth Cheney offer him? Was it the vision of unlimited, unchecked power over the world?

How can it be that this man from Texas presides over a White House that shelters and provides cover for men like Karl Rove and I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby, who clearly believe that the laws of our country are only meant to be imposed on lesser beings, the man in the street?

Remember the George Bush who declared that anyone who violated the law and participated in the leaking of the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame would be fired on the spot?

What about Karl Rove who works beside President Bush and is his Mr. Fixit and Mr. Fix Them? Was it just my imagination or did I not hear sworn testimony and see documents indicating that he was up to his pudgy little neck in the whole deal?

Can we not suppose that Mr. Rove was, in fact, at the root of the 51 White House employees whose e-mails miraculously vanished from all those e-mail accounts that executive-branch employees maintained through a cut-out: the Republican National Committee? How many laws governing the preservation of White House records, passed by Congress after the sorry spectacle of Richard Nixon and the vanishing 18.5 minutes of taped chit-chat in the Oval Office, have Mr. Rove and his hench-people broken? What ARE they hiding?

What about the lies and lame excuses put forward to hide their actions in the case of the missing federal prosecutors by the chief law enforcement officer of our country, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, and his sophomoric young assistant attorneys general with their degrees from universities where only one book is on the reading list?

Does anyone doubt that Karl Rove personally drew up the list of those prosecutors who were to be executed because they did not enthusiastically go after people who were likely to vote for the Democrats in any election?

The good attorney general should be fired if he didn’t know where that list came from and he should also be fired if he did know and denied it under oath before Congress. It was his department, the one that is supposedly dedicated to upholding the laws of our nation fairly and with an even hand, and he damned well should have known and damned well should have told the simple truth.

Where is it written in either the federal statutes or the Constitution of the United States that our laws against criminal acts apply to everyone but nice, meek, small-statured Republican political operatives who have a wonderful wife and children? Our prisons are full of nice, meek white-collar criminals who cheated a bit on their taxes or back-dated their bountiful option awards or raped and looted the coffers of corporations and beggared the poor fools who trusted them and bought stock in their criminal enterprises.

The estimable Scooter Libby repeatedly lied under oath to investigators of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and a sitting federal grand jury. Last time I looked that is a felony offense punishable by fine and imprisonment.

There are two former agents of the U.S. Border Patrol sitting in a federal prison for shooting a fleeing dope smuggler and then lying in their reports in an attempt to cover their butts with their bosses. Where is their commutation of sentences? Where is their pardon?

Instead of firing federal prosecutors who didn’t go after illegal immigrants and voter registration fraud like pit bulls, why isn’t our president demanding the dismissal of prosecutors and appointed regulators who turn a blind eye while the National Treasury is looted of billions by big corporations whose bosses write very large checks to Republican candidates?

What we have here, at the very heart of our own government, is a morass of criminal behavior unlike anything seen in recent American history.

It is past time to throw the rascals out of office, and I mean ALL the rascals of whatever party or political persuasion. If they didn’t participate then they closed their eyes to the rot, and by this I cheerfully include the Democrats in Congress who now control Congress and haven’t done anything but talk about doing something.

On his way out the door, whether sooner or later, George W. Bush had better sign one last pardon — to himself — for all the damage and destruction he has wrought on a nation that expected far better.
