Minus The Nemesis
A Collaboration of Some of the Finest Thought on Today's World

Michael Steele is the Republican Lieutenant Governor of Maryland. An American success story, he won a scholarship to Johns Hopkins University, excelled in his classes, studied theology, and established himself as an intellectually powerful renaissance man. Under his and Governor Ehrlich's stewardship, Maryland now has record low unemployment rates, a budget surplus, and is becoming a model state for environmental balance. On this record of success, Steele announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate.

The political left hates him, however, because he is black. At most political events Mr. Steele will be called, by the enlightened left, the worst slurs in our language-- an "Uncle Tom" a "race traitor" and far, far worse. At one event, protesters threw Oreo cookies at Mr. Steele, metaphorically showing his "black" outside, but "white" inside.

Members of the left perpetrating racial attacks. Sadly, this is not a new development. Remember this the next time a braided pit, Birkenstock hippy calls the Republican party a racist machine. That while the right encourages and fosters the success of citizens, regardless of color, the left asserts blacks are too stupid to think for themselves and, if they try to do so, must be violently put back in their place.

I was just watching the DVD of SLC Punk! and happened to think about my time spent in Germany. At any given moment on the weekends, my roommate and I would have several people in our barracks room replete with amps, guitars and drums. Yes, we had a 3-piece in the barracks. The guitar/lead singer was from Kitzingen, GE not too terribly far away, but was a gigantic dope fiend...while in the military. Shame; the dude was a talented guitar player. My roommate played bass and I had the drums. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays were our shows. The staleness of cigarettes and beer filled the halls along with the music created by the now defunct: Tastes Like Pennies.

The Punk Palace used to be filled to the brim with friends and shenanigans every weekend. Wake up and go get Doener Kebaps with the crew and then to work on Monday. Usually surrounded by good people, the Punk Palace had its day. Eventually the bass player and guitarist decided to pursue other things (in the case of the guitarist it was dope) over friendship and the band deteriorated. The times were had, however.

What prompted me to write this entry was the SLC Punk! movie as we all used to watch it now and again. Now that I think back upon the events, I wish that I had a tighter crew. Such is life. At any rate, the band that is in the movie is really called the "Eight Bucks Experiment" (not the uber crap name of "Extreme Corporal Punishment") from Denver, Colorado. I was stranded with them once at a "Gravity Kills" concert about to get a hotel room with them, but no one had money (all of our car's were towed). Funny thing is, the lead singer's dad owns about 7-8 car dealerships...punk as Hell. Random thoughts.

Harriet Miers, a 60-year-old woman with no judicial experience was nominated by President Bush to sit on the bench of the highest court in the nation. After much criticism from the bi-partisan crowd, Miers turned down the nomination.

Without going into much detail (as there is plenty on the subject floating about the internet), I am relieved that Miers stepped down. This gives hope that the conservative's in the nation are still working. It is no secret that Clinton treated his liberal's like excrement with disappointment after disappointment, yet they still want to believe that he was the greatest President of all time. This is just the indicative thought-process of said individuals; punching bags of their leader's.

At any rate, I am glad that not only is the conservative mind still functioning (quite well), but also that this is a great opportunity for the Bush administration. I hope that President Bush will take this chance to make a more educated decision as to who will eventually sit on the Supreme Court.

Rosa Parks told Jim Crow to piss right off by refusing to give up her bus seat in Montgomery, Alabama 50 years ago. Two other African-American females had already accomplished the same move, but Parks was jailed for it. She was ordered to pay a fine of $14 for her "crime". She was partially responsible for the Civil Rights Movement in the same sense that a spark is partially responsible for fire. What a courageous lady in her day.

What I don't understand (and this subject never should have been breeched) is why some people would compare this woman to the likes of Cindy Sheehan. One is a hero and the other is a zero. I would think that being compared to that person is a bit like having a bag of cement dropped on you. May your soul rest in peace, Mrs. Parks.

While trying to relax a bit this afternoon, I stumbled across C-SPAN and watched Cindy Sheehan speak at the National Press Club. I was less than impressed; apparently, many others were as well.

The camera shooting the "event" was situated at the back of the room where the viewer could see everyone in the room. This "event" was open to press and from the count that was made, 12 showed. There were a lot of empty chairs in that place. There are basically two possible scenarios which would describe the loss; near complete lack of interest in the ditch-witch, or the indictment of Lewis Libby. My guess is the former.

At any rate, the reporters that did show up were probably not cleared to get into press conferences for important events so they were seconded to Sheehan's press conference. After all, who would screen for nut-jobs at that show if the keynote speaker is cut from the same cloth? Most of the reporters were of a foreign nature as well, which kind of surprised me. Really, I guess no one is that interested in the tripe that Sheehan spews anymore.

Sheehan fielded some questions asked by reporter's and didn't really have anything of value to say. She made empty, paltry demands that Bush get troops out of Iraq, explained her $75 fine for sitting on "her" sidewalk in front of the White House and an arrest mere days ago. Carrying about her arrest record like a badge of honor, Sheehan explained that she would not pay and go to trial at which, she would plead "not guilty". While I have seen elementary school children make more concise, well-spoken speeches, Sheehan was pure comedy gold to someone who thinks that she was a disappointment to begin with. Sheehan is not a well-spoken individual at all. All in all, I think that the reporter from a Tokyo newspaper stated it best when she mentioned that she in fact, thinks that Sheehan's support is growing weaker and weaker (which it is).

The worst part is that persons of her caliber don't understand in the slightest how the military works. Her latest antics/gripes are that of a recruiter lying to her son 5 times. She has it nailed down to 5. If that is the biggest and latest gripe, her "movement" is truly going down in flames. Her son reenlisted in the military, for he saw something in the military and the military saw something in him. Such a shame that a mother has to defame her child's name. She should be ashamed of herself, but because she is ignorant, will not be.

This is a great article written by Mike Adams of Front Page Magazine. In the article, there is disturbing news. Also referenced in the article by Adams, is a well-written blog entry by Jon Sanders of the John Locke Foundation. In the Sanders entry, the incident is described in a bit more detail. Here are the basics:

It is a known fact that some African-Americans feel put upon by society. Because of certain elements of the media, hate groups and other biased organizations and or people, it is no wonder. There are two sides to that coin, however. Take the subject of the article for example; Dr. Kamau Kambon. In a speech at Howard University, on October 14th that is over 4 hours long, Kambon steps to the mic at around 3:33. His closing words are simply chilling:
"And then finally I want to say that we need one idea, and we're not thinking about a solution to the problem. We're thinking about all these other things, but we're not dealing with a solution to the problem. And we have to start to think about a solution to the problem so that these young brothers and sisters who are here now, who are 15, 16, or 17, are not here 25 years later talking about these same problems.

Now how do I know that the white people know that we are going to come up with a solution to the problem? I know it because they have retina scans, they have what they call racial profiling, DNA banks, and they're monitoring our people to try to prevent the one person from coming up with the one idea. And the one idea is, how we are going to exterminate white people because that in my estimation is the only conclusion I have come to. We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet to solve this problem. Now I don't care whether you clap or not, but I'm saying to you that we need to solve this problem because they are going to kill us. And I will leave on that. So we just have to just set up our own system and stop playing and get very serious and not be diverted from coming up with a solution to the problem and the problem on the planet is white people."
Instantly, this person's credibility is suspect. While in no way do this man's words come close to any sort of truth, but they in fact, stray far from it. I can see idiots like Kanye West buying into this tripe. At any rate, this dummy was teaching at NC State on an "as needed" basis and has subsequently been canned. What a sad individual. If people like this are allowed to perpetuate not only stereotypes, but also their baseless hatred because they feel as if they are owed something, society gets nowhere. Individuals like this hinder progress, and NC State made a good first step: fire them, don't give them jobs. If they cannot conduct themselves as adults and competent ones at that, they don't deserve the job.

Along the same lines of hatred and complete insanity is this guy: Paris Lewis. His club name is Malik Zulu Shabazz. Just another NBPP (a terrorist organization) "leader", this sick individual is bent on killing white people and police. Thankfully, no one really listens to these people except law enforcement.

I wonder...

I am just wondering a few questions in reference to the whole Saddam trial deal:

A) Why the Hell is there a trial (are there people that believe Saddam isn't a douchebag)?

B) Why the Hell is there a defense coucil for the above listed douchebag?

C) The title of the article is: "Defense in Saddam Trial Demands Security". Isn't that what the Iraqi people have been demanding for years but haven't received until US intervention (defense and security)?

Don't cry naysayers.

I found a riddle on the internet the other day...I can't figure it out. I have the clue listed and then my answer, but I may never know.

What's dumber than a box of hair and spreads easier than Jiffy?

My Answer:
I am not sure, but it's probably Tara Reid.

Hmm...weird; here is another one:

Who used to weigh damn near a metric tonne and is definitely dumber than a box of sand and quite possibly mildy (if not severely) retarded?

My Answer:
I am not sure, but it's more than likely Anna Nicole Smith.

This article has some entertaining ideas.

Within, the article is basically citing poll data that would suggest a turnover in the House (as in 1994). It is important for people to realize what a turnover would mean for the nation. Because of the ineptitude that has been demonstrated in the past as far as leniency with terrorists (when they are within your grasp, as many as three times), becoming soft at the hands of nations that would like to see problems just go away rather than solve them, pretend to play a centrist attitude, etc., it should be no surprise as to what these people are capable of; creating policy for their own gain, not what's in the nation's best interest.

It is important for the American voter to realize how important candidate research is going to be for 2006 and again in 2008. Because the liberal mindset is accomplished at little besides manipulating the unwitting mind, it is of the utmost importance to realize what a turnover would do to the moral fiber of a nation. Armed with knowledge, the voter can exercise their rights and enjoy free will by not letting a turnover occur. It is the more conservative mind rather than a "free spirit" that is going to keep this country safe when she needs it most. By not listening to the tripe that is put forth (for the most part) by the liberal mindset, the voter is able to see through the facade and make conscious decisions. It should not be difficult to think for yourself, but it seems others would like to do your thinking for you.

With the recent news about Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise being cult followers, there is much talk around the old internet that the invasion has begun. To add some spice to the cult, Holmes is now pregnant. Oh boy, another Hollywood bastard child!

While many proponents of the preservation of personal rights would argue that it is their life and citizens shouldn't be concerned with it. Personal rights are a great thing, but in this case, both have placed themselves into the public eye and are deserving of scrutiny.

The S.S. Cruise which officially docked in Looneyville some time ago is a self-proclaimed psychiatry expert. He has also, seemingly, taken control of Katie Holmes's life. With not much of an acting career as of yet, this could spell the end for Katie Holmes. Cruise's career has been in decline for a while now as well. That is not to say that he isn't a decent actor; he is. His personal choices that have led him to making an ass of himself nearly everywhere he goes are left suspect.

Katie Holmes's father is none too happy (and rightly so) about the shotgun wedding. Cruise apparently promised the man that there would be marriage before children. Now, I am no expert on Scientology (I think only L. Ron can be credited with that), but I am pretty sure lying is not a facet of the cult. As a result, this relationship is perhaps doomed. I will stick to my initial 2-year window. There is also noise about a "silent birth" in which the mother of the child must not scream, or cry or basically make any noise whatsoever during the birthing process and at the same time, be free of painkillers. Along with that garbage is the belief that for 7 days after the birth, the child is virtually left alone as to not introduce any form of trauma for the first week on Earth.

There are also the theories floating about that suggest that in exchange for being the front-man for the cult of Scientology, Cruise is presented with a Hollywood trophy wife, to bear him a child. Any way you look at it, Cruise is borderline nuts. Tom Cruise may not be a psychiatry expert, but he is definitely a dummy.

Gerhard Schroeder, the now former German Chancellor was ousted by his conservative arch-rival Angela Merkel. Hopefully, Germany will be able to profit from this ousting of the Chancellor and thrive on the world stage. Already in progress is a deal with Russia that will allow Siberian gas to flow directly to Germany, courtesy of Schroeder's ties to Russia.


It's also been reported that Vladimir Putin has offered Gerhard Schroeder a job in the Russian energy giant; Gazprom. Putin and Schroeder have been buddies for a while; stemming all the way back to when Putin was a KGB officer operating in East Berlin. Suspect. Schroeder lives rather large as it is, and in order to keep up with his Kristal taste he may have to live with a Heffeweizen budget for a bit. Germany's retarded brother to the west's (that would be France) president has offered condolences, but no job. Perhaps Schroeder will make the best of his new found position (or lack thereof) and hopefully not spend his days with Putin in a hollowed-out volcano lair making plans to rule the world.

Usually when referring to a Marine that has served his/her respective time in the military, they are called a "former" Marine. When a Marine loses his/her life in the service of the Corps and country, they are called "Ex" Marine. Being that I feel this guy is disrespecting the Corps and his motives are borderline at best, Josh Rushing is a sketchy former Marine.

Rushing has decided to become a liaison to Washington's component of Al-Jazeera, a propaganda network and sponsor of terrorism known the world over. Regardless of what your political affiliation and feelings towards the Defense Secretary, he described Al-Jazeera very accurately by saying:
"perfectly willing to lie to the world" and has "a pattern of playing propaganda over and over and over again"
This can only be viewed as a hindrance to the fledgling Iraqi government. As they are trying to create a new country from the ground up (before the US got there, it was consistently in a state of retrograde operations), Al-Jazeera plays the propaganda that incites insurgent risings and gives new hope to their futile cause. At least the offices were temporarily shut down due to someone realizing this fact.
"I've given my entire adult life to the health and well-being of this nation," Rushing says. "I wouldn't do anything to threaten that."

"What the Marines trained me to do was to represent the best of what America stands for to a foreign audience. That's exactly what I'm going to do."
What's worse is this sketchy former Marine considers this work noble, not seditious. Rushing has obviously added his own misguided twist to what the Marines "trained him to do". They didn't train him to show solidarity for a terrorist network, or show that American's stand for it either. REMF.

In the end, Rushing is just a public affairs pogue with seemingly little experience to speak of (in regards to joining the enemies news network). After presumably passing around his resume to potential employers and only landing a job at Al-Jazeera, it's sad to think this guy is not competent as anything else but a puppet for propaganda. I don't see how this guy can honestly say that he is a voice of America when he sat out Iraqi Freedom from the comfort of the lush paradise that is Doha, Qatar making films.

With seemingly little press given to this individual, reports are now streaming in that Joel Henry Hinrichs III possessed "jihad material" in his apartment. This event took place on 3 October, 2005.

Joel detonated himself outside of a college football game between OU and Kansas State. No one was injured in the blast beside the obviously blown-up Joel. His apartment complex was evacuated and authorities have not only chalked it up as being a suicide, but are going through his place with a fine-tooth comb. Apparently the authorities also found other dangerous materials (read that as additional bomb making supplies) in Hinrich's apartment. This kid was apparently suffering from severe depression and his father said that it's not likely that he intended to harm anyone.

Oddly enough, two days prior to the actual explosion Joel tried to buy ammonium nitrate from a local Norman, OK store. The police wrote down the license plate number of the vehicle and started an investigation into the kid. Norman, OK and specifically OU are both lucky this disturbed individual injured no one. I am not sure what will come of the "jihad material" lead, but will make amendments to this entry if it develops.

Users, the title says it all. There is a new section under the Links portion of the page...off to your left. It is devoted to music reviews. Not being tied down to one genre of music, the section will try and provide an honest review (as honest as Nemesis and I make it) for all types of music. There won't be much politics involved despite the many confused bands out there simply attached to a label to make a buck. So, when you get a chance, check it out!

Side Note: Don't let a musician be your voice! The moment musician's get political, their music begins to suck. The obvious contradiction to that of course, would be The Rolling Stones. Their music has sucked since around 1972. Oddly enough, that 400-year-old raisin is still able to belt out some tunes even though it's politically motivated.

In order to entice people to actually still believe in the near defunct space program, NASA is endorsing space tourism.

I find this a bit hard to believe. Don't get me wrong, space exploration is of the utmost importance, but when you can't keep space vehicles from exploding you really shouldn't be taking paying customers. I wonder if NASA is a member of the Better Business Bureau?

Take for example one Gregory Olsen. A wealthy businessman with too much disposable income, Olsen is on the rapidly deteriorating ISS for a weeklong stay. This was said of Olsen:
Olsen is bunking in a sleeping bag, dining on prepackaged meals and going without running water. The trip is "like camping out," he said Tuesday.
Hey guy, you just paid $20,000,000 to the Russians for a "camping trip". Dummy.
"He is a real space researcher," Russian cosmonaut Valery Tokarev, one of Olsen's crewmates, said before their flight. "We can no longer simply call him a tourist."
Yeah, as much of a space researcher that a New Jersey businessman with a 6-inch porthole is allowed to be. You may no longer be able to call him a tourist Ivan, but I can still call him an idiot.

In the not-to-distant future, I see some asinine stats getting posted because of NASA's idea of space tourism. We might see "first guy to pay $20,000,000 for shooting up in space" or "first guy to pay $20,000,000 for getting shine-boxed on the ISS". I can't wait. Actually I can because the space program has lost its footing now. Gemini, Apollo, Hamm, Glenn, Armstrong, Shepard all great names and programs. Now we have Olsen and the Space Monkey's. Good one NASA.

Talks have been given the go-ahead and are taking place in the seething black hole that is the U.N. Kosovo is rife with ethnic tension and corruption despite the "amazing" 1999 NATO "air war".

Oddly enough, in it's infinite knowledge, the U.N. seems to have forgotten the region and now tensions are flaring back up. Perhaps Zinga can share in this statement: if I have to return to the Balkans again, I am going to be pissed right off.

The Balkans is like a success story for soccer hooligans. Had there been boots on the ground in conjunction with the so-called air war, there would be little problem now. Basically you have one Slobodan Milosevic and his merry band of hooligans causing trouble socialist style. Having decided that communism really does suck after joining the party in 1959, Slobo opted to become a half-assed commie, or socialist. You can see what he accomplished. At any rate, the region needs to be dealt with by using a stronger hand. The U.N. is obviously incapable of handling such a task, but I am pretty sure that a few well-placed A Teams can do the job.
