Now TT can tell us a story.
Where in the world is Linda??
Where has my Auterrific gone?
I want some answers, and, better yet, I want some blogging around here! So much so that I had to come here and do it myself.
A modern Orthodox Jewish couple, preparing for a religious wedding, meets with their rabbi for counseling. The rabbi asks if they have any last questions before they leave. The man asks, “Rabbi, we realize it’s tradition for men to dance with men and women to dance with women at the reception. But, we’d like your permission to dance together.”
“Absolutely not,” says the rabbi. “It’s immodest. Men and women always dance separately.”
“So after the ceremony I can’t even dance with my own wife?”
“No,” answered the rabbi. “It’s forbidden.”
“Well, okay,” says the man, “What about sex? Can we finally have sex?”
“Of course!,” replies the rabbi. “Sex is a mitzvah within marriage, to have children!”
“What about different positions?” asks the man.
“No problem,” says the rabbi. “It’s a mitzvah!”
“Woman on top?” the man asks.
“Sure,” says the rabbi. “Go for it! It’s a mitzvah!”
“Sure! Another mitzvah!”
“On the kitchen table?”
“Yes, yes! A mitzvah!”
“Can we do it on rubber sheets with a bottle of hot oil, a couple of vibrators, a leather harness, a bucket of honey and a porno video?”
“You may indeed. It’s all a mitzvah!”
“Can we do it standing up?”
“NO, NO, NO!” cries the rabbi.
“Why not?” asks the man.
“Could lead to dancing.”
For the “Political Stupidity file:
My vote for “Asstard of the Year” goes to former (and ineffectual) president Jimmy Carter for urging the international community to fund the Hamas-led “Palestinian” Arab government:
A day after Hamas swept to an upset victory in the Palestinian parliamentary elections, former US President Jimmy Carter on Thursday said that Wednesday’s voting had been orderly and fair.
“The elections were completely honest, completely fair, completely safe and without violence,” the former president said.
Hello, stupid! The elections were hardly orderly and without violence.
Carter, who led an 85-member international observer team from around the world organized by the ‘National Democratic Institute’ in partnership with ‘The Carter Center,’ urged the international community to directly or indirectly fund the new Palestinian Government even though it will be led by an internationally-declared foreign terror organization.
“The Palestinian Government is destitute, and in desperate financial straits. I hope that support for the new government will be forthcoming,” Carter said at a Jerusalem press conference.
Destitute? Ask Sufa Arafat for the money that her terrorist husband absconded with. Wait, give that money back to the international community. Let the “Palestinian” Arabs start fending for themselves.
I think Carter is going to end up being asstard of the year, and the year is still less than a month old.

Hattip: Blue Star Chronicles
Linda takes Bush to task (not without reason, mind), and CNN states that
President Bush took responsibility Wednesday for “wrong” intelligence that led to the war, but he said removing Saddam Hussein was still necessary.
This is exactly what I’ve been saying all along. Saddam was a threat and his ouster was long past due. The reasons are legion, and I won’t belabor them here.
As far as not trusting the US because of Bush: I don’t trust France, Germany or Russia as far as I can throw them, or most of the rest of the Useless Nations member countries, and I will be G-ddamned if I trust any Muslim theocracy for one minute.
Any country who chooses to base their entire opinion of us on one president (and not the other 42 and a 200 year track record of global philanthropy) can go straight to hell, as far as I’m concerned.
Uh, is this thing on??????
Linda has graciously allowed me back to post and I can’t think of a damned thing to write about, so, like, I just wanted to say hi, it’s good to be back, and I promise to come up with something that people will really want to read this weekend.
In the meantime, here’s a link to an interesting story about David Duke giving a speech in Syria. Anyone else NOT see this in the MSM? That’s what I thought.
More news later…..

While I am waiting to hear whether my Mu.nu nomination has been approved (Thanks, Linda!!!), I wanted to introduce everyone here and at my new, (hopefully) temporary site to Jonathan Laughlin, to whom I have been linked for a long time, as he and his Michigan-based band, Craic Wisely, have just released their first CD. I have just ordered it, have not heard it, but if it is the kind of music I think it is from perusing the Craic Wisely website, I think it will be highly enjoyable. Congratulations, Jonathan and I will update this post after I’ve had a listen.
This post redirects everyone to the new blog I set up, not knowing that I could get a referral to the Munuvian planet. Linda has been kind enough to offer to refer me, rather than see me spin down into the abyss that is Blogger (no offense, Paula! LOL) So I have a few posts up there, it’s good practice, but I hope to be setting things up in Munuvia soon. Please stand by and I apologize for the confusion that is of my own making……
Dark star crashes
pouring its light
the forces tear loose
from the axis
for faults in the
clouds of delusion
shall we go,
you and I
While we can?
the transitive nightfall
I received the following e-mail today, which is weird, because I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a member of the Farmworker’s Community. But as a member of the community of Northern California, I am keenly aware of the raw deal many farmworkers get, especially from wineries that are rolling in cash. Hell, I get a raw deal, comparatively speaking, doing construction work on some of these wineries, and I do one hell of a lot better than the poor bastard picking grapes for some of these declasse pricks. So I decided to pass along this message for anyone who cares about the plight of the farmworking community. I only wish I could boycott Gallo, but I haven’t had a drink in over sixteen years.
Greetings Farm Worker Community!
After almost two years of fight, the Farm Workers at Gallo of Sonoma continue to struggle for a fair contract.
Despite Gallo of Sonoma being one of the largest wine producers in the world, with its annual sales reaching $1.8 billion, the Company has refused to meet the modest demands from the Farm Workers that include decent wages, benefits, fair treatment, and just working conditions.
More, plus contact information, is in the extended entry.
