Take Responsibility?

Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid is calling on George Bush and Dick Cheney to apologize for the actions of their aides. He also said that Bush should pledge not to pardon any aides convicted as a result of the investigation. Let's see if George is man enough to do that.

Bye Bye Scooter!!!

Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff, Lewis Libby, was indicted on Friday on five criminal counts of obstruction of justice, perjury and making false statements. He immediately resigned his post and hobbled out of the White House. So, one down; several more to go. So long Scooter. Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Suicide Mistaken for Halloween Decoration

Yuck. Halloween is not a good time to hang yourself.


If you haven't seen this week's "Apprentice" and don't want the outcome spoiled, then STOP READING NOW!!!

Okay, for everyone else.

Whoah! What a cool ending. Four candidates fired in one fell swoop. I never saw that coming.

I'll be the first to complain that NBC has "cried wolf" too many times with their promos for this show. How many times have we heard "An ending you'll never forget" or "Never before has this happened in the boardroom." But this time, it was true!!! Way to go, Donald. Now, let's get those ratings back up.

Bush's Oil Buddies

The Exxon Mobil Corporation posted a profit of $9.9 billion in the last quarter, which represents an increase of 75 percent!!!. The largest in U.S. corporate history.

So can anyone explain why we were paying over $3 a gallon?

So Long Harriet!

It appears that Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers has fallen upon her sword and withdrawn her nomination to the highest court in the land. Obviously, the Administration is already spinning that the nomination was withdrawn because the Senate demanded to see internal White House documents as part of the advise and consent process. However, I think the real reason is more that George Bush knew this nominee would never survive the confirmation process, causing a huge embarrassment for the Administration. And Harriet, being the loyal Bush-ite that she is, was more than happy to sacrifice herself for her beloved President.

Okay George, how about nominating someone qualified for a change?

Apple on Trial?

Electronics consumers are considering filing a class action lawsuit against Apple claiming that their new iPod Nano is defective and that the company attempted to conceal the problem and mislead consumers. Apparently Apple changed the formula of the iPod's protective plastic coating, resulting in a skin which scratches excessively under normal use (see photo). Lately, Apple has been quite the darling of the computer world, winning many awards and accolades for hardware designs such as the iMac, eMac, and the iPod. However, it appears that Apple cheaped out on this version of the iPod and it's going to come back to bite them on the butt. Have fun, Steve Jobs.

Republicans Eating Their Own

The right-wing website "Free Republic" is reporting that even former Supreme Court nominee Robert Bork is calling the Miers nomination a disaster.

Doesn't the country deserve better, President Bush?

2000 American Lives

A recent accident brings the American death toll in Iraq to 2001. I thought the following quote was rather telling: Omar Ahmed, a Sunni business owner in Dora, says "I hope the number of Americans who die goes even higher."

Thank You Rosa Parks

The "mother of the civil rights movement" Rosa Parks passed away on Monday. Her small act of defiance changed a nation and proves that one person can indeed make a difference.

Thanks President Bush!

President George W. Bush was in town recently. The reason I know is because our Commander-in-Chief decided to tie up busy Los Angeles rush hour traffic not just once, but twice. The first offense came during a busy Thursday evening commute with Bush shutting down a good portion of the Westside so that his motorcade could get to a Republican fat-cat fund-raiser in Beverly Hills. And if that wasn't bad enough, Bush pulled the same stunt during Friday morning commute just so he could get in a photo opp at the Reagan Library. Bush even managed to strand a bunch of elementary school busses, causing the kids to miss a peformance of the Wizard of Oz. So, for tying up major freeway and street routes during rush hour, all while inconveniencing thousands of commuters, we say, "Thank you President Bush!"

Fight On!

Wal-Mart heiress returns degree to USC.
Frankly, I'm not sure why she even bothered. Everyone knows that a degree from $C isn't worth the paper it's printed on.


No Justice for DeLay?

Poor Tom DeLay. Yahoo News is reporting that the Money Launderer of the House is demanding a new judge simply because Judge Bob Perkins is a Democrat. Is DeLay insinuating that the Judge can not preside over a fair trial simply because they are of different political parties? Hmmm. In the past, DeLay has never seemed to mind about a Judge's potential bias. What about the time Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia refused to recuse himself in a case that involved Vice President Dick Cheney? It seems that Scalia and Cheney were pretty good buddies. Where was DeLay's outrage then? Or how about the nomination of Bush crony Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court? Wouldn't there be a potential conflict of interest in case Bush or any of his Administration eventually ended up in front of the Supreme Court to answer for their crimes? How come DeLay isn't complaining about that?

This is just another cheap tactic by DeLay to blow a smokescreen over what has really happened: He broke the law.

Tom DeLay Mug Shot

Well, it looks like the long arm of justice has finally caught up with Tom DeLay. Check out his idiotic grin on this mug shot. Tom, you won't be smiling much longer. Anyway, once the rest of the Republican administration has been convicted of their various crimes, and Bush is impeached, Stephanie Miller wonders who will be left to run the government. Anyway, click here to check out DeLay's arrest warrant. Classic!

Ugh, it's pouring outside. And who says it doesn't rain in Southern California? Well, this means that my commute will be hell.

Anyways, in honor of all the rain, here's a fun little Noah's Ark game. But be forewarned: it's addicting.

Da Fong!

Here it is!!!

Physical proof that Jeff Fong actually works at Disneyland.

This picture was taken on Disneyland's 50th birthday, July 17, 2005, while Jeff was hard at "work" at the Emporium on Main Street USA.

Happy Halloween!!!

The West Wing

Okay, so this show is just a shadow of its former self, but it's still tons better than most anything else on TV. I'm really digging the election. Will Santos win? Will the show continue? Stay tuned.

In the meantime, NBC has put up some campaign websites for both Santos and Vinick. Check them out!

iTunes 6

Okay, I've downloaded the new iTunes 6 onto my Mac at work and my Sony VAIO at home. The previous version of iTunes for Windows was pretty buggy and there were a lot of complaints from PC users. But I've been checking out CNET and it seems like Apple has worked the problems out. I'll keep my fingers crossed. I've already downloaded a few music videos. And that new Apple Video iPod is sounding real good, but I really need to conserve money.

Baby Pix

Wasn't I a cutie???

Our Wedding

The page is after-the-fact, but check out Sara and Tim's Wedding Webpage.


Sara and I were going to head out to Disneyland on Saturday night, but we got lazy and decided to stay local. We tried a new BBQ place in Pasadena. It's called Barn Burner Texas BBQ. While the service was a little spotty (the waitress brought us cole sole instead of the fries we ordered), the meat was delicious. We tried a Combo Meal (The menu says it serves one or more) and it was more than enough for the two of us. Anyway, we'll probably go back with friends. Highly recommended!


Hello everyone. Here is my first post. Let's see what happens with this blog.
