American Marine Corps Hero Killed.

Pentagon spokespersons today announced that the heroic Marine Corps soldier who gave his life valiantly in the process of liberating the Iraqi population of their precious oil reserves was killed by an Iraqi fundamentalist suicide powerline. This is the latest in a string of dirty, underhand and downright naughty tactics used by the Iraqi's which have included, but not been limited to: fighting against their American liberators, choosing to fight their American liberators in terrain of their choosing and making their American liberators look bad on TV.


PFC Jessica Lynch Rescued.

This all American good looking classy girl was rescued from an Iraqi hospital where she was receiving medical treatment today. In an unrelated story nine american heroes have given their lives and a further eight have gone missing for their nation while this was happening.


Heroic American Forces Capture Evil Airfield.

The Saddam International Airport was captured today by the heroic forces of the United States Military dedicated to Iraqi liberation. Reports of civilians being slightly miffed at delayed flights were discounted by Pentagon officials who said that "These damn ungrateful Iraqi's should be happy that we are now flying into that shit-hole of a country, I mean, its all empty planes going out once we've dropped off the oil company people. And what's the problem with flying United anyway? Just because we serve bacon for breakfast, ham sandwiches for lunch and pork chops for dinner..."


Air Force Heroes attack Heroic Ground Forces.

In what the White House is describing as an act of "Friendly Rivalry" one of the heroes of the sky attacked a group of heroes on the ground. One of these brave men on the ground gave his life so that his blood may flow to liberate more of Iraq, its people, and its oil.

More on this story to come...

Now put the remote down and slowly back away from the Television.
You've obviously watched too much of the "Fair and Balanced" Fox News.

Damn him! He's figured out how we've been selling the war to the hicks and the rubes! Mobilize the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy immediately! The Limbaugh Division is already en route to Toronto (as of right now, they're busy bankrupting an all-you-can-eat pancake house on an I-95 rest stop in Maryland) to capture Thought Criminal Wong and take him back to General Liddy for reeducation, so send the Reagan's Raiders brigade to Tasmania on the R.S.S. Buckley carrier group. Capture Mr. Russell, then bomb Hobart flat so next time they think twice about harboring a spy and a Thought Criminal.

Ah, Durran...such promise, wasted now thanks to obviously too much exposure to liberal mind rot. I feel...almost saddened, really, to sign your termination order. Perhaps had I not trusted you with so much responsibility so fast, you would not have broken under the pressure. Were I not always right, I might think that this could be partly my fault.

<sigh> Nathan, have the traitor and thought criminal blinded, lamed, and neutered, and then send him to General Liddy's reeducation center, with specific instructions that Mr. O'Reilley will be his case worker. Then bring me the video of Senator Kennedy being boiled in oil and a glass of wine made from the blood of children in single parent families. I need something to cheer me up.

Yessir.

*Grabs Durran Korr and hauls him off to the G.G.Liddy Center for Mental Re-education*

Would you like the vintage 1996 from the cellar?

And would you rather have the DVD with frame by frame analysis of the Sen. Kennedy boiling?

Hah! I am a member of the US military, the NRA, and a religious believer that has some conservative leanings-- I am my own axis of evil, all by myself! Hahahahaaaa!

Now I am going to kill everyone in some foreign country just so I can have their oil... swim in it, drink it, smear it all over my body... yessirree Bob, I've got my own Vast-Right-Wing Axis-of-Evil Conspiracy Club right here and taking applications!

And a cool secret handshake.
Something about Libertarianism always bothered me. Then one day, I realized what it was:
Libertarian philosophy can be boiled down to the phrase, "Work Will Make You Free."


In Libertarianism, there is no Government, so the Bosses are free to exploit the Workers.
In Communism, there is no Government, so the Workers are free to exploit the Bosses.
So in Libertarianism, man exploits man, but in Communism, its the other way around!

Breaking News: Anti-War Protesters Chant Different Bumper Sticker Slogans

Gondwanaland, AP-- Anti-war protesters today broke new ground when they changed their knee-jerked slogan chant from "No war for Oil" to the more provocative "Bush is a Poo-Poo Head".

"We just weren't getting anywhere with the old bumper sticker slogan," spokesman Pat McCrotch said on behalf of the anti-war protest movement known as 'Jobless Fry Cooks for Peace', "It seemed stale. It was left over from the original Gulf War, you know". Other jobless hippies, freaks, longhairs and similar idle, shiftless people approved the move to the new slogan.

"This really adds some pizzazz to our movement," said Wilma Fingerdew, a 30-year-old out-of-work Art major. "I mean, lets face it, Bush is a poo-poo head. Michael Moore said so," she quipped, revealing her source of information, "He [Moore] also said that Bush is 'mean', so I guess he must be."

The two activists joined hundreds of other protesters, many with tie-dyed t-shirts and Grateful Dead bandannas, while others sported black turtleneck sweaters and waved unread books of Franz Kafka.

"Oh, the angst," said unemployed 40-year-old poet Turner Brown, as he adjusted his tinted John Lennon glasses, "I was so happy that they changed the slogan, it was getting pretty dull chanting the same thing over and over again," he admitted, "Not that I don't have faith in my movement. I am sure that if we chant enough easy, black-and-white slogans like commercial jingles, sooner or later the people will wake up and have original thoughts," he said with confidence, "Just like me."

Don't we have any of the '87 left? We used a homeless mother of three adorable cripples for that one--most excellent. And if I recall correctly, we sold the cripples to the circus. And yes, bring me the DVD. And when I'm done, I want Patricia Ireland to bake me a pie. She's still pregnant, barefoot, and in the kitchen, right?

No, we used all the '87 at the last VRWC International Meeting.

Far as I kno she is still in the kitchen, that is unless she hasn't starved.

You might want to consider feeding her bread and water at least once a week. (who say's I am not a heartless conservative?)
