Weird Bird Friday – Short post today

TGI(WB)F – I have so much happening in the next 3 days that this is going to be short and really weird. Got a 50th birthday celibaration for Board member Cathy, the BBQ and Blues Festival and Barack Obama ALL on Saturday. A fundraiser on Sunday and a Club meeting on Monday. Geez!

I have no idea what this bird is or where I got it. I think it is a semi-drowned owl. Whatever it is it’s really weird.

It is being held by a weird old bird too. Good Luck to Susan and John in Denver. They get to host the Democrat National Convention. See more at: http://www.thedrunkablog.blogspot.com/

Juche – a simple name for a nasty idea. Kim Il Sungism

Jodie Foster, Pregnant Man, Iran, Prince Philip, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, American Idol, Obama, China, Beyonce, Rolling Stones. (sorry for the deception but please read below)

Normally I wouldn’t bother to cover this but since it’s on the list I felt I needed to “dis” it as much as I could. I even took the time to get Buzzes top searches for the week to punch it up a bit. I even checked every category Energy Tough Love has to publicize this human indignity. The list of “Religions” that I used to start this meditation on the relationship between Religion and the Environment placed Juche well down on the list but with 18 million adherents that still alot of folks. I had never heard of it before and I even asked a couple of people if they had heard of it. Imagine my suprise when I typed it into a search engine and up popped this Prick who claimed he was god:

During his lifetime he forced millions of people in North Korea to worship him. Can you imagine anything more degrading or disgusting then a man who points a loaded gun at your head and demands that you treat him like a god. You must pray to him. Oh most Divine Leader. Makes me want to puke. But then he is followed by this buffoon:

Now they are “worshiping” something no better than a trained monkey. If they had an ENVIRONMENTAL group in North Korea, I wish them the best of luck but I ain’t gonna publish it. I ain’t even gona type it into a search engine. If anybody ever deserved to get a nuke shoved up his poop shoot. This would be it.

Seven Deadly Sins Revised – Beyond Oil is pretty funny

This was not what I had planned for today’s Post. But when I saw it on Peak Oil it just kinda reached out and grabbed me (abracadabra):

So Baby makes three:

beyond.jpg

  1. Thou shalt not drive an SUV at 70 miles per hour on the freeway, with the air-conditioner running, just to pick up a half gallon of milk at the grocery store.
  2. Thou shalt not waste energy and water by enjoying long hot showers.
  3. Thou shalt not vote for a presidential candidate who does not speak up about peak oil.
  4. Thou shalt not read the writings of Michael Lynch, Daniel Yergin, Jed Mouawad, or ExxonMobil. Pray that they may soon recognize the Truth.
  5. Thou shalt not oppose sainthood for M. King Hubbert. He’ll be St. Marion.
  6. Thou shalt not have more than four grandchildren. Blessed are they that leave no more than two grandchildren. (The Vatican has yet to approve this one.)
  7. Thou shalt not grant priority to those who preach about climate change. Their hearts are in the right place, but their minds are focused on a lesser issue. Change is where it’s at.

Ed: While we’re at it, we can offer an 11th commandment. It’s called the Spitzer Amendment, “Don’t get caught.”

okokokokok I Eat Crow and Its Not Even Weird Bird Friday

Yes it is true sometimes I am a jerk. BUT I am not an unrepentant jerk. I apologize to the brilliant journalist minds at State Journal Register! Not only did they win 9 awards in competition against other State of Illinois newspapers. They also ran my letter in toto even though it went over their 300 word limit. (hangs head and toes the dirt) I was wrong about youse guys. Sorry.
