The Nuclear Prawn Cannon

…and other stories

Today was, for the most part, a lazy day. I did no gardening, no chores, nothing of any major importance. Hell, I didn’t even step outside the house until 2:30 when I took a 2 mile walk. Speaking of that, I found out that I’ve lost me edge over these past few months of not walking regularly. It took me almost 45 minutes to walk 2 miles (on hilly terrain) and I was shagged out when I got home. I’m thinking it’s gonna take me a couple of weeks of regular walking to get back up to 5 miles an hour.

In other news, next weekend is DunDraCon. We’ll be there from early Friday afternoon until Monday morning. I hope to see and hang out with some of you there.

Tomorrow night and Tuesday night, it’s the 130th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. I’ll be watching it both nights and rooting for the Basset Hounds.

I’ve annotated a few of my first LJ entries. To view them, click the tag below.

And now, bedtime!

Get Me A Tall Tree And Some Short Ropes

Congressional Accountability for Judicial Activism Act of 2004
H. R. 3920
To allow Congress to reverse the judgments of the United States Supreme Court.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
March 9, 2004
Mr. LEWIS of Kentucky (for himself, Mr. DEMINT, Mr. EVERETT, Mr. POMBO, Mr. COBLE, Mr. COLLINS, Mr. GOODE, Mr. PITTS, Mr. FRANKS of Arizona, Mr. HEFLEY, Mr. DOOLITTLE, and Mr. KINGSTON) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary, and in addition to the Committee on Rules, for a period to be subsequently determined by
the Speaker, in each case for consideration of such provisions as fall within the jurisdiction of the committee concerned

A BILL
To allow Congress to reverse the judgments of the United States Supreme Court.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the `Congressional Accountability for Judicial Activism Act of 2004′.

SEC. 2. CONGRESSIONAL REVERSAL OF SUPREME COURT JUDGMENTS.

The Congress may, if two thirds of each House agree, reverse a judgment of the United States Supreme Court–

(1) if that judgment is handed down after the date of the enactment of this Act; and
(2) to the extent that judgment concerns the constitutionality of an Act of Congress.

SEC. 3. PROCEDURE.

The procedure for reversing a judgment under section 2 shall be, as near as may be and consistent with the authority of each House of Congress to adopt its own rules of proceeding, the same as that used for considering whether or not to override a veto of legislation by the President.

SEC. 4. BASIS FOR ENACTMENT.

This Act is enacted pursuant to the power of Congress under article III, section 2, of the Constitution of the United States.

The “Mr. POMBO” is Richard Pombo, congressman from here in California. I suspect that the “Mr. Doolittle” is John Doolittle another congressman from California. Both of them are slimy conservative rightwing cocksuckers who will do whatever is necessary to fuck up California and the United States.

Call or write to your congressman and senators and tell them to put a stop to this bill.

NOTE from 2/11/06: HAH! Those miserable goatfuckers Pombo and Doolittle are both ass deep in the Abramoff scandal and, if there is any justice in the universe, will get hung high and lose the next election. Or better yet, the Democrats will take over and put their slimey Republican asses in jail.

But Mama, That’s Where The Fun Is

Unseasonably warm temperatures here in Nor Cal are causing much blooming among the plant life.

This is causing allergic reactions that are kicking the shit out of allergy sufferers such as myself. I would gladly remove my nose and sinuses and put them in a box for a couple of weeks if I could.

And on top of these friggin’ allergies, tomorrow I start taking methotrexate (a cancer chemotherapy drug) to treat my psoriasis. There is a small chance it can cause liver damage, so for the first month I have to get my blood checked every week AND pay my dermatologist a visit. Supposedly, it will pretty much cause the psoriasis to go bye bye as long as I take the drug. After 30 years of ointments, creams, UV light boxes and other treatments, I’m willing to give this drug a try…until the first fucking sign it is messing with my liver, then it is outta here.

It ain’t easy being me.

NOTE from 2/11/06: What the fuck was I thinking letting that doctor give me a fuckin’ chemotherapy drug for my psoriasis? Shit! I coulda fucked myself up. Fortunately, despite it doing an ok job on the psoriasis, the UVB light treatments work better, so I only took that crap for a couple of months.

ORIGASMI: The Art Of Folding Paper Into Sex Toys

Where do I come up with this stuff?:)

In the interest of reaching as many of you poor entertainment starved citizens as possible, I’m going to start cross posting my bloggage on my Live Journal page. Anyone who bitches about this will get my size 12 red sneaker up their ass.

(Note From 11/11/2017: Yeah, this was from way back in the ancient days of LiveJournal, when my first blog was on Blogger. How quaint.)

 

I’m also going to try to have less “daily news” and a bit more creative stuff. Don’t look for great philosophical prose or outpourings of my deepest inner soul, but you might get a few more or less fictionalized tales from my Wild and Misspent Youth:) And maybe some gardening tips and a recipe or two.

And the wack job titles WILL continue:)

NOTE FROM 2-10-06: Less “daily news”? I sure screwed the pooch on that one, eh? Still, I really ought to write up something from My Wild And Misspent Youth. And I should give more gardening tips and recipes, just to help enlighten you, the poor huddled masses:)
