    Too Late Too Late

    Kickass song, but it IS too late. I should have been in bed an hour ago, but I got caught up reading about Natalee Holloway. Tomorrow is my last day in my store as a manager so I am sure that they have something stupid planned.

    More on that tomorrow.

    Updated November 2007 – This is an older entry, for the latest updates in the Natalie Holloway Case you will want to read my archives on Natalee Holloway with the latest information on the three young men who have been arrested once again. Please leave a comment and let me know you’ve visited.

    Apparently two years later, a new search has taken place in Aruba related to the Natalee Holloway case. Friday and Saturday police searched the Van der Sloot home, possibly for something specific. It’s kind of nice to hear. I think that most of the general public has given up on anything ever happening in the Holloway missing persons/murder investigation. I say murder as that is what most of us think has happened.

    There are several videos from the news channels all up over at Blogs for Natalee if you are interested in checking them out.

    I had several posts up back in 2005 on Natalee, and what sucks is that I had not even heard this news story at all. The reason I found out is that some of my old posts started getting quite a few hits, so I did a new search on it.


    I closed the comments on all of my old entries quite some time ago, but if interested in reading them, here are some of the old posts.


    Natalie Holloway Dead? 6-11-2005

    Natalee Holloway 6-16-2005 (yes, I know I misspelled her name in the first one)

    New Arrest in Natalee Holloway Case 6-17-2005

    What if Natalee Holloway Were Black and Poor? 6-18-2005

    There are a ton more, just do a search of the site if you really want to read it. What is interesting is that the post linked to last is the one that I got the most comments. Some of them were quite entertaining.

    One thing that I was not aware of that has been brought to light (at least to me) is that Joran Van der Sloot has written a book. There is more information that can be found over at Scared Monkeys.

    If I hear or read any more news I will be sure to post it here.

    My brother sent me a link in the comments to my original entry on the VA Tech shootings. Apparently Bryce is a student there and has posted several times on the shootings. They are very heartfelt and like most of the students there he is confused and hurt. He has apparently been interviewed several times today and this is his site.

    Man, there are actually news agencies commenting on his blog trying to get interviews. What a bunch of fucking ambulance chasing vultures. CBC and MTV have both posted comments requesting interviews that I saw and I didn’t read in very far. I can’t really say that I wouldn’t grant one myself though. Blogging is becoming very mainstream now.

    My heartfelt condolences go out to all of the victims and their families in this tragedy, as do the prayers from the rest of my family.

    32 people are dead at Virginia Tech today after a gunman rampaged through the school killing people. So far it has not yet been announced whether police killed the gunman or if he shot himself. I suppose it doesn’t really matter. He’s dead and the shooting has stopped.

    I have been busy most of the afternoon and therefore didn’t see the alert when it popped into my email earlier. 32 people. That makes it the deadliest school shooting in US history followed by UT (Charles Whitman) and Columbine.

    The wife brought up a pretty good point when I asked her this afternoon if she had heard the reports, that all of the media attention that this is getting is just going to make it that much more likely to happen again. I agree with her on this one.

    If only someone there had a weapon when it was occurring maybe they could have stopped this tragedy. Around the web I’ve seen several posts about it.

    Clint Says Schools Don’t give a crap. Clint doesn’t know what the hell he’s talking about.

    I’m still not sure who this person is (did I tell you I hate Livejournal?) but they are trying to compare the reaction of the white house press corp with a made up TV President. What the fuck is up with that? Join the real world you moron.

    Jacques Strappe has to do the obligatory comparison with the war in Iraq and let us know what a tyrannical idiot he thinks the President is. That may very well be the case but what does it have to do with the subject at hand?

    What is up with all of these crappy Livejournal sites on Technorati anyway? Doesn’t anyone besides me have a shitty blog on their own domain?

    I don’t normally track-post entries that include foul language, but in this case I am submitting this to the open track-back alliance. I started writing this around five this morning before going to work, and have done a bit of reading tonight and returned with a few changed opinions. I started out ready to jump on the right-wing bandwagon, but now I think most of them have it wrong. I am leaving the post alone though, you can pretty much tell when the tone changes toward the end of it anyway.

    I’m getting there, although probably not for the same reasons. I will be the first to admit that what he said about the Rutgers Women’s Basketball Team was inappropriate and ill-timed. Should he be fired? Probably but not because the biggest racist in America, Al Sharpton, says so. He actually should have been fired a long time ago. I don’t particularly consider what he said racist (probably because I am white) I just consider it stupid. He is a dumb ass who should watch what he says in public because he is a public personality.

    I was surfing the web a little while after I woke up this morning and saw where he had been on Al Sharpton’s radio show and I read through the transcripts. For the most part it is Al and his cronies jacking their racist jaws not letting Don get a word in edgewise. Toward the end of the transcript Imus started getting really pissed off because someone insulted him. Tough tits there guy. What’s good for the goose needs to be good for the gander and all those other sayings. Pot. Kettle. Black. Oooh, maybe I shouldn’t have said black in this discussion, someone might get offended.

    Joke ‘em if they can’t take a fuck.

    So who is the biggest racist in this picture anyway?

    Don Imus, the moron who is a shock-jock and has made some inappropriate comments because that’s what he does for a living?

    Or Al Sharpton (you know, Reverend Al who might be related to Strom Thurmond) who doesn’t seem to be happy unless he is stirring up a pot of shit. Once again I have to bring up Steven Pagones and Tawana Brawley. Think that wasn’t about race? Think again. Everything comes down to race with Al Sharpton. Oh, but he can’t be a racist can he? He’s black.

    How’s this for a leader of civil rights? “If the Jews want to get it on, tell them to pin their yarmuleks back and come over to my house.” Sounds like the very voice of racial reasoning to me.

    Or in 1995 When a Jewish store owner in Harlem was having a conflict with a black rival he said “We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business”. A protester in that one shot his way through the store and burned it down, killing eight people in the process. Damn, that’s some serious non-racial loving, although it helped launch Rudy Guliani into the office of Mayor defeating David Dinkins, New York City’s first black mayor.

    What about the other loudmouth in the bunch, Jesse Jackson? The guy that hates Hymies (jews) and says they live in Hymietown (New York)? Oh, he couldn’t be a racist cause he’s black too. He denied ever saying it, then blamed it on a Jewish conspiracy. There’s only a conspiracy of one out to get you brother, and it’s your dumb-ass self. Then after Louis Farrakhan threatened the black reporter (as well as ALL jews) who had allowed Jackson’s statement to be printed Jesse Jackson stood by him. Because that’s what non-racists do.

    I rarely agree with Oliver Willis although I do enjoy reading him, but one of his posts touched on something today. At first I was like “Oh no, you are all a bunch of hypocrites but once I actually thought about it for awhile I realized he was right. The point? Oh yeah, I will get to it eventually. Some bloggers, myself included say that it is hypocritical for Don Imus to be suspended and possibly fired for racial remarks but nothing happens to Chris Rock, Chris Tucker, and Dave Chapelle for saying worse.

    Their language can be extremely offensive and vulgar (look who’s talking here) but racial? Nope (except for Chris Rock), at least not when they are talking about their own race.

    If that were the case, then all of the white comedians that make fun of themselves could be accused of being racist as well. Watch the Blue Collar Comedy Tour sometime and see what I am talking about. Jeff Foxworthy makes fun of rednecks all of the time, hell I make fun of being a dumb assed redneck at least once a week myself. If he were to start making fun of black people the same way he does whites he would be out of work.

    Most conservatives are using the wrong argument here, although Macsmind touched on it when he posted about Chris Rock and put the link to the Chris Rock Bigger and Blacker Script. If as a white person I were to go in and substitute “n_____” or “black” for cracker in this script it would show up 16 times and I would be labeled a racist. I don’t see anyone calling for Chris Rock’s head on a platter for racist comments, although they should. If Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson were the progressive members of the Civil Rights movement that they claim they are, they would be at the front of the line. They are too busy worrying about diamond merchants and Hymie’s to police themselves I suppose.

    So here’s the same question I asked above; who’s the biggest racist? I’m not asking whether they should be fired. I’m not asking who has done more to help others. I’m not even asking which one you hate worse. All I am asking is which one is the biggest racist. Don Imus (who needs to be shit-canned anyway) with several stupid comments over the years, some of them racial or Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton who both have a lifetime of being victimized and judging from their words and actions have no interest whatsoever in equality or racial harmony? I would be hard put to say who is the biggest out of the last two, but the black KKK hat prize would have to go to the Reverend Al Sharpton as far as I am concerned.

    What do you say to someone who has been in prison for 22 years for a crime that he didn’t commit? Sorry damn sure doesn’t work. Personally I could think of about a million little things to say, and George Washington would be speaking each and every one of them. I am not one who believes in needless lawsuits that waste my money as a taxpayer, but in this kind of situation if the State of New York didn’t have money falling out of their butt trying to get it to the guy then he has every right to sue the pants off of them.

    …er, women that is. I don’t know where the heck she found it, but Dr. Doches has found the funniest damn picture of Al Gore that I have seen in awhile but you have to read the post first.

  • As much as I hate going to Wal-Mart, where the heck else can you go for two new tires, milk, and zantac all in one stop. That’s where I’ve been this afternoon. I’ve been needing tires on the back of the Neon for awhile now anyway as one of them has a slow leak that has been developing into a much faster one. The last time I bought tires I went to Kelly-Springfield, but there isn’t one out near me. RePete and I went and window shopped and I got her a little dish, bowl, and cup set that had the Disney princesses on them. Hey, it’s the little things that make the little ones happy.
    After that we decided to go to Sonic for a couple of milkshakes. Not to mention the extra long cheese coney and tater tots. Damn, sometimes you just gotta have a bit of the old junk food. It rocked. She enjoyed going as well. I couldn’t get her to touch the coney, but she did share my tater tots with me. We didn’t do anything particularly special, but sometimes it’s the small things that count for that parent-child time.
    You know, I forgot what I was posting here and hit publish. Duh.
    Shortly before RePete and I left Sonic, this guy and his family drive up in their Expedition and order drinks. I guess at Sonic you can get your fountain drinks with all kinds of add-ins for a little bit more. After they had paid, the guys beeps them back out and starts raising hell about paying six buxks for something that should have cost four something. The girl explained pretty thoroughly about the add-ins, etc and the guy just kept on raising hell. I was getting embarrassed for the girl (and the guys family) because he was being such a dick. Sometimes it just does not pay to be in customer service.

    I think someone said that the next stop is somewhere in Tennessee.
