Tolerance


I am truly perplexed that so many folks are against a mosque
being built at Ground Zero. I think it should be the goal of every
American to be tolerant. Thus the Mosque should be allowed, in an effort
to promote tolerance.
That is why I also propose that two nightclubs be opened next door to
the mosque, thereby promoting tolerance from within the mosque. We could
call one of the clubs, “The Turban Cowboy”, which would be gay, and the
other a topless bar called ” You Mecca Me Hot .”
Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes in pork, and adjacent
to that an open-pit barbeque pork restaurant, called ” Iraq o’ Ribs.”
Across the street there could be a lingerie store called “Victoria Keeps
Nothing Secret”, with sexy mannequins in the window modeling the goods..
Next door to the lingerie shop, a liquor store called “Morehammered.”
All of this would encourage the Muslims to demonstrate the tolerance
they demand of us, so the mosque problem would be solved. If you agree
with promoting tolerance, and you think this is a good plan, please pass
it on…
For the sake of tolerance !

A Letter from Goldman Sachs

Concerning Occupy Wall Street

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report

)– The following is a letter released today by Lloyd Blankfein, the chairman of banking giant Goldman Sachs:

Dear Investor:
Up until now, Goldman Sachs has been silent on the subject of the protest movement known as Occupy Wall Street. That does not mean, however, that it has not been very much on our minds. As thousands have gathered in Lower Manhattan, passionately expressing their deep discontent with the status quo, we have taken note of these protests. And we have asked ourselves this question:
How can we make money off them?
The answer is the newly launched Goldman Sachs Global Rage Fund, whose investment objective is to monetize the Occupy Wall Street protests as they spread around the world. At Goldman, we recognize that the capitalist system as we know it is circling the drain – but there’s plenty of money to be made on the way down.
The Rage Fund will seek out opportunities to invest in products that are poised to benefit from the spreading protests, from police batons and barricades to stun guns and forehead bandages. Furthermore, as clashes between police and protesters turn ever more violent, we are making significant bets on companies that manufacture replacements for broken windows and overturned cars, as well as the raw materials necessary for the construction and incineration of effigies.
It would be tempting, at a time like this, to say “Let them eat cake.” But at Goldman, we are actively seeking to corner the market in cake futures. We project that through our aggressive market manipulation, the price of a piece of cake will quadruple by the end of 2011.
Please contact your Goldman representative for a full prospectus. As the world descends into a Darwinian free-for-all, the Goldman Sachs Rage Fund is a great way to tell the protesters, “Occupy this.” We haven’t felt so good about something we’ve sold since our souls.
Sincerely,
Lloyd Blankfein
Chairman, Goldman Sachs

Golf Panties….
The Swede’s wife steps up to the tee and, as she bends over to place her ball, a gust of wind blows her skirt up and reveals her lack of underwear.
‘Good God, woman! Why aren’t you wearing any skivvies?’, Ole demanded.
‘Well’ she said, ‘you don’t give me enough housekeeping money to afford any.’
The Swede immediately reaches into his pocket and says, ‘For the sake of decency, here’s a 50. Go and buy yourself some underwear..’

Next, the Irishman’s wife bends over to set her ball on the tee. Her skirt also blows up to show that she, too, is wearing no undies. ‘Blessed Virgin Mary, woman! You’ve no knickers Why not?’
She replies, ‘I can’t afford any on the money you give me.’
Patrick reaches into his pocket and says, ‘For the sake of decency, here’s a 20. Go and buy yourself some underwear”!

Lastly, the Scotsman’s wife bends over. The wind also takes her skirt over her head to reveal that she, too, is naked under it.
‘Sweet mudder of Jaysus, Aggie! Where ta friggin hell are yer drawers?’ She too explains, ‘You dinna give me enough money ta be able ta affarrd any.’
The Scotsman reaches into his pocket and says, ‘Well, fer the love ‘o decency, here’s a comb…. Tidy yerself up a bit.’

TSA leaves freaky note in bag after finding sex toy

Surprise note from the guy (or girl?) who went through your bag (Jill Filipovic / Feministe)

“This is what TSA will do when they inspect a bag you checked and find a, um, ‘personal item,’” wrote Feministe blogger Jill Filipovic after Transportation Administration luggage screeners noticed a vibrator in her bag and decided to wish her well with that.

“Get your freak on girl” is scribbled across the insert travelers find when their bag has been looked through by TSA personnel.

“Total violation of privacy, wildly inappropriate and clearly not ok, but I also just died laughing in my hotel room,” said Filpovic.

She told Boing Boing that after this incident she’s decided to retire the vibrator.

 

ODD NEWS: Giant Lego Man Washes Up on Florida Beach; Police Take It Into ‘Protective Custody’

Published: Wednesday, October 26, 2011

image

The life-sized figure of a man made of Lego pieces was found washed up on a Florida beach, and people are scratching their heads as they try to figure out where it came from and what it could possibly mean.

Jeff Hindman reportedly found the bright red, yellow and green “man” as he walked on the Siesta Key Beach in Sarasota County around 7 a.m. Tuesday, according to a report in the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

The fiberglass figure measures about 8 feet tall, and weighs about 100 pounds, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office. In a light-hearted press release, the department said it had taken the giant Lego man “into protective custody.”

The front of the figure’s bright green “torso” bore the cryptic message: “NO REAL THAN YOU ARE.” On the back appear the numeral “8″ and the words “Ego Leonard.”

Just who is Ego Leonard, you ask?

It’s apparently the alter ego of a Dutch artist.  A visit to the website, “Prescription Art,” shows a gallery of paintings for sale that all feature the Lego figure alongside pithy messages such as “I Love You,” “Play by the Rules” and, coincidentally, “No Real Than You Are.”

Converting the currency from the prices listed in British pounds, the paintings range in price from $3,407.19 to $4,238.90.

There’s also an Ego Leonard book — “No Real Than You Are” — that you can snag for just $11.18.

A message on the site, purportedly from the mysterious Ego, reads:

“My name is Ego Leonard and according to you I come from the virtual world. A world that for me represents happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations. Lately however, my world has been flooded with fortune-hunters and people drunk with power. And many new encounters in the virtual world have triggered my curiosity about your way of life. I am here to discover and learn about your world and thoughts …”

Miscommunication

A co-worker got a pen stuck inside our printer. He started to try and remove the pen, but I told him we don’t have time for that now, just put a note on the printer telling folks not to use it and then report it to the Help Desk. So he grabbed a piece of paper and scrawled on it. I left before he finished the note.
About 20 minutes later, one of my techs comes in laughing and says he was just in the lobby, saw a piece of paper on a printer and went to investigate.
Attached is what he found. Sometimes things don’t always come out the way you want them to……..

Cupcakes are coming in all shapes and sizes these days but seriously…Lasagna Cupcakes? Is that even possible? It is! These Lasagna Cupcakes are easily made using all of the same ingredients in your classic lasagna with layers of meat, three types of cheeses, and pasta.

Usually lasagna looks like a big gooey mess, but when it’s in cupcake form it looks elegant and refined. Wonton wrappers are used as the pasta element in this lasagna, eliminating the nightmare and logistics of trying to make pasta noodles cupcake sized.

image Wonton wrappers are fresh little sheets of pasta that are perfectly sized for these lasagna cupcakes and because of their thinness, they cook up super fast. Just take a stack of wonton wrappers and place a drinking glass on top. Using a knife, cut around to the glass to make circle shapes.

image Next, assemble layers of pasta, cheese, meat, and sauce in the muffin tins to make your lasagna cupcakes. I don’t know about your family, but in my family when we eat lasagna, we all fight over the corners of the pan because of the crispy and chewy texture. With these cupcakes, every single one has all the yummy qualities of those corner pieces.

Prep Time: 15 minutes  Total Time: 35 minutes  Servings: 6 Cupcakes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup marinara sauce
  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 12 wonton wrappers
  • 8 ounces shredded mozzarella
  • 3 ounces Parmesan cheese
  • 4 ounces Ricotta cheese
  • (optional) basil for garnish

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Brown beef and season with salt and pepper. Drain.
  3. Cut wonton wrappers into circle shapes using a biscuit cutter or using the top of a drinking glass. You can cut several at a time.
  4. Reserve 6 tablespoons Parmesan cheese and 6 tablespoon mozzarella for the top of you cupcakes. Start layering your lasagna cupcakes. Begin with a wonton wrapper and press it into the bottom of each muffin tin. Sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese, Ricotta cheese, and mozzarella cheese. Top with a little meat and marinara sauce. Use around 1-2 teaspoons of all the ingredients depending on your personal preference.
  5. Repeat layers ending with marinara sauce. Top with reserved Parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
  6. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until edges are brown. Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. To remove use a knife to loosen the edges then pop each lasagna out.
  7. Garnish with basil and serve.

Notes by Chef Lethal:

These are great for buffets, pot lucks and as a very special hot hordourves.

The same technique should work for those ‘mini~loaf’ style muffin pans. Those will probably go 3 layers however and require a longer cooking time. Over lapping of wonton wrappers pieces might be required depending on the pan size and center layer of wrapper should probably be turned 90 degrees and tiled for stability. a thin slice of Eggplant could be used in lieu of the center layer of wonton wrapper.

These would probably be well suited to pre~portioned servings for a dinner buffet. A narrow strip of heavy duty tin foil placed both length and width wise in the bottom of the pan prior to assembly should aid in the removal from mini~loaf pans in an intact manner after cutting around the edges carefully so as not to damage the tin foil.

Of course if you use the disposable tin foil mini~loaf pans and have a decent set of kitchen shears a little carful cutting on all 4 corners after they cool a few minutes will totally negate any removal problems!

Finally, our resident biggest consumer of food, Impish trekked back and forth thru his local Kroger in search of WonTon wrappers determined to try this recipe before I published it. See Impish is  considered in some circles a Lasagna expert having published a step by step how to guide on making the superior Lasagna as well as owing to the fact it was published by no less auspicious a website than Epicurean.com. (See his article here: http://www.epicurean.com/articles/lasagna-bob.html ).

Here are a few photos he sent me while trying the above recipe:

Completed and oven bound:

Fresh out of the oven:

Finally the finished product on a plate barely long enough for a picture to be taken before being devoured by a Dragon:

No word on Impish’s opinion of them as yet as he’s mouth seems to be continually too full of them to give me an understandable answer!

Love pasta? Well try a sweet version with these Nutella ravioli cookies! Made with sweet chocolate-hazelnut spread and sugar cookie dough!

Prep Time: 25 min Total Time: 45 Servings: 18 cookies

Ingredients

1 recipe sugar cookie dough
1/2 cup nutella
2/3 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup powdered sugar

Directions

1 Make your favorite sugar cookie dough recipe (do not bake). Roll out half of sugar cookie dough on floured surface until ¼” thin.
2 Scoop ½ tablespoon Nutella onto rolled out sugar cookie dough. Place Nutella scoops 2 inches apart.
3 On a separate floured surface, roll out second half of sugar cookie dough and carefully place it over first half of rolled out dough with Nutella scoops.
4 Using a ravioli cutter, gently press down on top of Nutella scoops to form small raviolis. Gently place unbaked raviolis onto baking sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
5 In a microwave safe bowl, melt white chocolate chips until smooth. Drizzle white chocolate onto ravioli cookies. Dust with powdered sugar. Let cool and enjoy!

Or you could be lazy like me and use premade sugar cookie dough from the dairy case!

Don’t have a ravioli cutter? Use a fluted edged cookie cutter and then crimp edges well with a fork instead!

Beavis and Butt-Head return to MTV

image

When Beavis and Butt-head return to the couch and watch television beginning Oct. 27 on MTV, there will be far fewer music videos for the boys to critique. They will be commenting on the network’s current fare — “Jersey Shore,” “16 and Pregnant,” Teen Mom” — and pop culture phenomena such as vampire movies and shows, and getting in shots at musical acts on a less frequent basis.

B&B will take a shot at becoming Siskel and Ebert, vampires, and tech support workers, and will re-enact Morgan Spurlock’s “Super Size Me” diet in the new edition of the series.

“Beavis and Butt-Head” ran on MTV from 1993 to 1997 and was criticized and revered for its violent content and the idiotic behavior of the lead characters. In returning this year, the show will be set up as it was initially with mostly two-part shows and the occasional full half-hour. The boys will still be wearing their AC/DC and Metallica T-shirts. And nebbishy Stewart will still be donning a Winger T-shirt.

And the ‘dumbing down’ of American Television, to say nothing of America’s youth continues. Sigh! Oh well, on the bright side it IS at least ONE program I will not have to explain the plot of to Impish!

 

coollogo_com-20481231 Some how this seemed to belong right here after a mention of Bevis & Butthead, though try as I might i cannot put my finger on why I associate the two of them with Impish. Possibly an intellectual level thing?

Now if we could only get both sides to recognize their common ground, common enemy and join forces to fix the problem!  NAH! Could never happen, partisan politics would preclude such a thing from ever occurring, even if everyone were to pull their heads out their asses long enough to have such an insightful revelation!

Last  Parting Shot Scope on Man

The 8th Miracle To Save America

Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris is a columnist and impossible to kill.

Despite high unemployment, continued bad news across fiscal America and a presidency that has lacked luster and restorative productivity, Barack Obama’s stats continue to rival his top GOP challengers. And let’s not forget that he still has the mainstream media hypnotically backing him or that his campaign machine hasn’t even unleashed its billion dollars, according to Mike Huckabee, to combat his competitor.

Conservatives are right in asking, “Which GOP presidential candidate could survive, let alone have victory over, the Obama machine?” But maybe the strategy for victory lies in a unique plural solution.

Last week, I concluded my recommendation of the book “Seven Miracles That Saved America” by noting: “I also believe we need an eighth miracle to save America — a providential and pivotal moment that spares our country from falling off into four more years of the Obama transformational abyss.”

Here is what I believe that eighth miracle would look like. It’s not a single person, but a group of people, a formidable team — brought together by an unparalleled idea and unbridled patriots — that ensures the ousting of our incumbent president and the restoration of our country.

As a six-time undefeated world karate champion, I, like any long-term titleholder, will tell you that I obtained such a status by (among other things) mastering my opponents’ strategies, not approaching every competition the same way, and by leveraging my foes’ weaknesses and strengths against my own.

In a column a few months back, I introduced a martial arts practice that does just that; the art of jujitsu is to use an opponent’s weight and strength to your advantage. I believe that this is what the GOP candidates and anti-Obama citizens must do in the 2012 presidential election.

This presidential race is unlike any before it. It is unique on many fronts, not only by the size and formidableness of the Goliath in the White House but also by the unique wisdom, experience and skill set of each potential GOP presidential nominee.

How many times have you heard from others, “There are strong elements I like in all of those running for the GOP nomination”? (During one debate, even the candidates themselves were splicing one another together as possible vice presidential nominees.) You may not want to see all of them sitting in the Oval Office, but wouldn’t you want to see most help the country by serving in some position in the next president’s administration?

Who wouldn’t want to see a brilliant, experienced former House Speaker Newt Gingrich as a part of the Cabinet? Who doesn’t appreciate the resolve and moral fortitude of Rep. Michele Bachmann and former Sen. Rick Santorum? Who doesn’t want to utilize the business backgrounds and leadership of Herman Cain and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney? Who doesn’t like the emboldened constitutional spirit and frugal fiscal passions of Rep. Ron Paul? Who doesn’t appreciate Gov. Rick Perry’s advocacy for Texas jobs and against frivolous lawsuits with tort reform? And who wouldn’t want to use the foreign affairs experience of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman?

So herein lies my political jujitsu idea. After a fair fight for the GOP nomination, why couldn’t the Republican contenders join together with an unparalleled strategy that could send the Obama campaign compound (including the mainstream media) in a tailspin? Why couldn’t the winner create a united front and say, “A vote for one of us is a vote for all of us”? Why couldn’t they create a Cabinet that would utilize all their skill sets to resurrect our republic? Why should the next GOP president try to sell the American public on new, obscure Cabinet members when these candidates have been vetted before our eyes for months? Would this idea not also rally those following the various candidates and keep our votes from splitting over a third-party candidate?

I can’t think of any preceding presidential race in which this could have been done with the field of GOP nominees, but I also can’t think of any preceding presidential race in which an idea such as this was needed more than it is now. This GOP political dream team also would be a true test of the contenders’ patriotism and leadership servitude. Do they love and want to save our country enough to take a second, third, fourth, fifth, etc., seat among the presidential administration?

No idea is without its limitations and faults, but 99 percent of those across this country with whom I’ve broached this idea are certain that it would rally the majority and usher in a new president. Almost everyone who hears it also asks, “Why haven’t the presidential candidates thought of this?”

That is exactly my question and challenge. Does any GOP presidential candidate have the courage and resolve to rally the GOP contestants and then the American public behind a political dream team comprising all of them?

Forget the presidential rhetoric. Forget presidential election business as usual. Forget typical GOP infighting. Desperate times call for desperate measures and strategic ingenuity.

I will conclude by repeating the impassioned plea at the end of last week’s column. I feel as if we are standing at a crossroads similar to that at which George Washington stood when he wrote to James Madison in 1786, just a few years before the first president’s inauguration: “No morn ever dawned more favorable than ours did; and no day was ever more clouded than the present! Wisdom, and good examples are necessary at this time to rescue the political machine from the impending storm.”

About lethalleprechaun

I believe in being the kind of man who, when my feet touch the floor in the morn', causes the Devil to say "BUGGER ME! HIMSELF IS UP!" ======== I'm a White Married Heterosexual who fervently believes in the war(s) we are fighting, the Second Amendment which I plan on defending with my last breath and my last round of ammunition as well as Arizona's stringent law on Immigration and the need for the border wall. I'm a right of center Con-centrist with Tea Party & Republican sympathies who drives an SUV. I am a Life Time Member of the NRA, a Charter Member of the Patriots' Border Alliance and North American Hunters Association. If there is a season for it and I can shoot one I'll eat it and proudly wear its fur. I believe PETA exists solely to be a forum for Gays, Vegetarians, Hollywood snobbery to stupid to get into politics and Soybean Growers. The ACLU stopped protecting our civil liberties sometime after the 1960s and now serves its own bigoted headline grabbing agenda much in the same way as the Southern Poverty Law Center. I am ecstatic that WE the PEOPLE finally got mad enough to rise up and take back the Government from WE the ENTITLED and reverently wish the Liberals would just get over the loss and quit whining/protesting all the time. After all they're just reaping what they've sown. I am Pro-choice both when it comes to the issue of abortion AND school prayer. I believe in a government for the people, by the people which represents and does the people's will. Therefore I an Pro States rights and mandatory term limits but against special interest group campaign contributions and soft money. I think that sports teams who allow their players to sit or take a knee during the National Anthem should be boycotted until the message is received that this is not acceptable behavior for role models for children. I believe Congressional salaries should be voted on bi-annually by the people they represent and not by themselves. I think Congress should be subject to every law they pass on the populace including any regarding Social Security or Healthcare. Speaking of the Healthcare bill (or con job as I see it) I hope Trump will overturn it and set things back to normal. I oppose the building of an Mosque or ANY Islamic center at or within a 10 mile radius of Ground Zero in New York. I will fight those in favor of this until hell freezes over and then I will continue to fight it hand to hand on the ice. Further I think the ban on immigrants from certain nations known to harbor and promote terrorism is a justified measure, at least until we can come up with better methods of vetting and tracking those non citizens we allow in the country. We did not inflict this measure on them those who refuse to point out, denounce or fight radical religious terrorism brought this upon themselves.

  1. Yet ANOTHER reason to stay away from the Nutella aisle! I think I’ve gained five pounds just looking at the cookie picture!

    But, those little lasagna thingies look pretty impressive, MORE impressive considering they’re dragon-baked!

    The Chuck Norris article was interesting. I wish him luck if he tries to convince the majority of those power-players to pull together as a team. I think nearly all of them like being in charge too much to ever work together effectively.
