Life in Otisburg

Imagine if you will an exciting scene from the 1978 film Superman...

A very exciting scene...

Underground resident Lex Luthor is discussing the "New West Coast" with Superman, and he has his hapless henchman Otis lay down a placard on a map of North America, replacing old west coast with "New".

"Costa Del Lex, Luthorville, Marina Del Lex, Otisburg..."
"Otisburg?" asks Lex Luthor incredulously, looking down at the poorly-spelled word written in grimey-black crayon.
"Miss Teschmacher, she's got her own place," Otis says.
"It's a little bitty place!"
And Otis is stuck removing the word, and his brief little dream, with a dirty dish towel.

Isn't that an exciting scene?  Or is it dull...D - U - L - L...dull?

Now, just what would Otisburg be like if it exists?  Would it be populated by the elite of the country, run by the best minds our educational system could provide?  Or would it be populated by those whose brains "...can barely generate enough power to keep those legs moving"?  And would it be run by those who think they are smarter than a fifth grader, yet filled with a lot of hot air? 

So, in looking for such a place, one has to look on the internet.  Remember, these guys are too lame to put hammer to nail; they need something requiring no more than a few hours a day sitting around in their underwear in their stale little messy bedrooms while Dad is downstairs shouting obscenities at the television again.  The antenna on the roof needs adjusting, and Dad doesn't have a ladder. 

So, let's call our man in the underwear Otis.  All of the citizens populating Otisburg are named Otis; they gotta match Ned Beatty's character from the a fore-mentioned movie.  Meaning that they have to be nincompoops.  Idiots are welcomed with pomp and ceremony involving a lot of four-letter words; dimwits, halfwits, malcontents, the brain-damaged, the brain-dead, and those persons who tend to see a lot of revolving colors due to casual use of pharmaceuticals legal or otherwise are also welcomed in like-manner.  Those that hate God are worshipped.  Go figure that one out.

And Otisburg has to be dull.  D - U - L - L.  The collection of nincompoops calling themselves Otis has to have a site so dull that flies drop from sheer boredom.  There's a lot of dead flies on the smelly carpet in Otis' bedroom; it's been, what, twelve years since he graduated from high school?  But, Otis is there, in his underwear, plugging away on his keyboard, making Otisburg attractive in his mind only.  Lots of four-letter words in every paragraph.  Four-letter words are standard in Otisburg, in keeping with the intelligence requirements of the site.

And what does the site offer?  Over-kill usage of the word "rational."  Apparently, rational people these days sit around in their underwear banging on keyboards in smelly bedrooms with a lot of dead flies on the floor.  So, Otis is there, writing in his lofty, majestic style which reminds one of another, lofty, majestic work under the collective title Dick and Jane...

"The Book of Ruth is short. Really, really short."

Otis can provide the location of a great many things...

"Dr. Dennett's beard, seen here attached to the person named Daniel Dennett."

Otis can describe Kentucky...

"Kentucky is the world's leading producer of jelly because its horses are fingerlickin' good."

Otis tries his hand at giving advice while making an article look "authoritative"...

"On occasion, you can think better of someone by assuming that, rather than malicious, they are merely stupid."

Otis can describe objects...

"Radio is like television without the amusing graphics. Or an internet that does not require the ability to read and with significantly fewer cat pictures."

Otis can predict the future...

"All the whites are gonna die really soon!"

Otis is an expert in language...

"Dude doesn't know his Latin."

Otis claims to be an expert in history...

"Note also that during the Cold War, ramming or getting rammed by a Commie submarine could have far-reaching political consequences, so both parties tended to whistle innocently and pretend that nothing had happened."

Otis has seen Bigfoot...

"In the Appalachian region, we simply call them "Grandpa gone bad." In spite of their primitive appearance, they are usually fine hands with a homemade still."

And Otis is good at hiding the guilty...

"The Mary Celeste was a merchant ship that disappeared in November 1872 only to turn up intact on December 4th 1872, but with the crew forced to abandon ship after being boarded by Daleks missing."

Yesserie, quite a rational man, Otis is.  You would expect that such a wonderful site as Otisburg would be extremely stellar in the ratings, but, well, this is Otisburg.  No reading ability required.

It's what you get when you have a bunch of nincompoops pretending to have something more in their heads than a half-dozen marbles.

Sam Adams was no deist

Last week a made-for-television advertisement had a little bit of controversy.  Sam Adams - the beer company - had this little ditty:

For all those concerned, Sam Adams - the beer company - left out three little words from the quote they had taken from the Declaration of Independence:

"...that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

The words omitted were "by their Creator".  In a little defense of Sam Adams - the beer company - they were bound by current beer advertizing regulations which prohibit references to God or religion in what they advertize.  This unfortunately has led to many calling for boycotts of Sam Adams - the beer company - in part because of the fact that Sam Adams - the beer company - altered a part of the most important historical document in American history to sell some beer which was, rather ironically, signed by Sam Adams - the patriot.

But that's not the point I am making here.  With the collection of vehemence coming from the right in calling for boycotts of Sam's brew, there was a collection of vehemence from the left, proudly-saying that they would go out and by a six-pack of the stuff.  And in that collection of leftist vehemence, there came the nuts falling from the tree of ignorance.  Sam Adams - the patriot - was a deist.  

Samuel Adams - the patriot

Apparently, the subject of deism is being taught to our kids in school, specifically that nearly all of America's Founding Fathers were deists.  Well, you may wonder, just what is a deist?  Someone who declares God exists, but has no influence in anyone's lives past or present.  In short, they say, "Yeah, but so what?  Who cares.  Big deal.  Get your cats outta my kitchen."  Unfortunately, the liberal left claims deism for the Founding Fathers in a massive effort to downplay their own Christianity while adding more and more bricks to the so-called "wall of separation" of church and state they claim is in the Constitution (it's not).  And the results of their efforts?  Current persecutions of Christians in public, in private, in the military.  Talk about a censoring of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

So, Sam Adams - the patriot - is a deist, they say.  Let's see what Sam - the patriot - has to say about that...

"I . . . [rely] upon the merits of Jesus Christ for a pardon of all my sins."  (Last will and testament)

"The name of the Lord (says the Scripture) is a strong tower; thither the righteous flee and are safe [Proverbs 18:10]. Let us secure His favor and He will lead us through the journey of this life and at length receive us to a better."  (From his "Letters of Delegates to Congress: August 16, 1776-December 31, 1776", Vol. 5)

"I conceive we cannot better express ourselves than by humbly supplicating the Supreme Ruler of the world . . . that the confusions that are and have been among the nations may be overruled by the promoting and speedily bringing in the holy and happy period when the kingdoms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ may be everywhere established, and the people willingly bow to the scepter of Him who is the Prince of Peace." (Fast Day Proclamation issued by Governor Samuel Adams, Massachusetts, March 20, 1797) 

"...the peaceful and glorious reign of our Divine Redeemer may be known and enjoyed throughout the whole family of mankind."  (A Proclamation For a Day of Public Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer) 

"...we may with one heart and voice humbly implore His gracious and free pardon through Jesus Christ, supplicating His Divine aid . . . [and] above all to cause the religion of Jesus Christ, in its true spirit, to spread far and wide till the whole earth shall be filled with His glory."  (Proclamation for a Day of Fasting and Prayer, March 10, 1793) 

"...with true contrition of heart to confess their sins to God and implore forgiveness through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ our Savior."  (Proclamation for a Day of Fasting and Prayer, March 15, 1796)
A deist, they say?  Sam Adams - the patriot - is standing there proudly proclaiming Jesus Christ.  Telling others to follow Jesus Christ.  He's stating Jesus Christ is his Savior and redeemer.  Is that something a deist would do?  I don't think so.  So, is Sam Adams - the patriot - to be believed here, or is it some leftist nutjob who fell out of the tree of ignorance after downing too much of Sam Adams, the beer?

Libs love coat hangers

Liberals are a backwards lot.

Killing innocent children before birth is fine.  Executing death row inmates is not.  This is explained quite clearly in the attitude of one Sarah Slamen, speaking at the Texas Senate Committee on Health and Human Services just a few days ago:

For the record, she is opposed to House Bill 2, which changes some rules regarding an abortion, namely that it will "prohibit abortions in the 20th week of pregnancy, require clinics to meet extensive requirements to certify as surgical centers, further regulate the distribution of abortion-inducing drugs and require doctors to gain admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of an abortion clinic."

Ms. Slamen thinks her rights are being violated, so she's going to move to lib-friendly New York, where they execute unborn kids and don't have a death row for convicted murderers.  Basically put, she's proudly announcing that instead of saying NO all the free sex she wants, she's going to end whatever pregnancies that may happen, and she's bound and determined to end them in a clinic that is less sanitary than the men's john at the local convenience store.

The ironic part about HB2 is that it doesn't end abortions.  Come on, you're a lib woman reading this; you just had a one-nighter with the boys of the band - with mary-janes included - and you want to kill off, er, remove the resulting mistake before the parents find out, right? 

Than what's wrong with finding out that what you're removing is a baby, and not a pile of cells?
Than what is wrong with ensuring you have a bona-fide doctor doing it, and not a quack?
Than what is wrong with having the same standards in an abortion clinic that currently exist in a hospital's emergency room?
Than what is wrong with having a drug tested so thoroughly it could not possibly harm the one taking it?

Seems to me that HB2 is meant for the health and well-being of the woman seeking an abortion, but some people are so dense in their own beliefs that they cannot see the forest for the trees, even if the run head-first into one.  They talk about going back to the back alley, coat hanger days, where the conditions were as unpleasant and unsanitary as...

Well, that's what Ms. Slamen and her ilk are demanding right now.  We should leave the filthy, quack-infested abortion clinics alone.  We should abandon HB2.

Maybe the abortion clinics have former death row inmates on parole, cleaning them every other night.

The Big Baby

StuartMcT is a pseudonym.  It's from the language of central-Whinerslavia.  It means "where's my ninny at?"
Mr. McT, on one of his better days.

When you got a clown with a need for a ninny, you have a clown who whines a lot when he cannot get his way.  We get a lot of those people in Conservapedia.  People who demanded we change to suit them; people who whined when their silly little beliefs weren't posted; people who just have to harp on the concept of "debating" us, as if that's going to make everything all better.

We don't debate over facts and truth; we publish them.

So, in comes StuartMcT - he's been here before under one name or another for a couple of years now - and he decides he's going to make a threat.

"(bleep) I warned you what I was going to do if you didn't stop your childish cr4p about telling people to debate Viva while running away from debates yourself. You chose to ignore me. Unlike you, however, when I say I'm going to do something I carry it through. So, as promised, here is the real identity of the mysterious User:(bleep)..."

And what follows is name, address, and a threat to publish a phone number as well.  Which caused me to walk outside to where there's this barn, and I looked inside and noticed some straw was missing, undoubtedly clutched in the grubby paws of Mr. McT.

So, just what is StuartMcT so desperate over?  Why, it's the subject of evolution!  You know that theory, the one where we supposedly came from an amoeba, which turned into a fish, which crawled onto land and became a dinosaur, which turned into oil and enabled a bunch of Haliburton guys to drive around in Bentleys.  That theory.  Never-mind that the subject is based on nothing more than someone's say-so, there are some libs who believe in it so much that not only have they declared it to be a fact, but they will force it on the public as fact anywhere they see fit, including Conservapedia.

And when they don't get their way, why it's pounding fists on the computer desk; it's hair yanked out in frustration; it's heads banging against a wall.  And the demanded debates?  I can see the scenario now, at Mr. McT's home somewhere in Whinerslavia:

"Mommy, that mean'ol man won't do a debate with me!"

I should emphasize the "mommy" part...after all, Mr. McT is a screaming kid at heart.

"MOMMY!!!!  Why won't he debate me?"

Maybe his mommy has had enough; maybe she has some common sense.

"Stuart, it's been nearly thirty years since you last had your diapers changed.  I think it's about time you change them now!"

So, maybe we should find Stuart's address, and send him a care package of fresh diapers, and a ninny for all the time-
outs he needs to have?  I think so!

The ravings of a lying lunatic

Now, go back to a previous posting here, and a certain email posted on a Conservapedia user page in the fall of 2010, and one line stands out among everything else, because it clearly shows the "integrity" of liberals in general, and certain individuals in particular:
"I will lie, revise history, cheat, steal and censor to further our goals. What are you going to do about it? I will stop at no end, but you have to operate within the fictional bounds of your morality."
In my previous postings I talked about two different incidents involving several different people, and, besides attacking me, they had one thing in common. They wanted me to "fess up" to a lie which they seemed to think I created. In one, a "suicide" was created out of thin air; the other involved the manipulation of an email account and non-existent death threats. Both were found out to be frauds. Are you interested, reader?

But there's more to it than that, and it concerns the "freedom" that some people think they have over others. From the start in late-2007, Conservapedia has been under assault by individuals who decided on their own that since they couldn't control what wasn't theirs, they would destroy it. They resorted to major and minor vandalism; they tried forcing an ideology incompatible with the site; they picked fights; launched DDoS attacks, and having failed at that they even resorted to extortion threats, harassment, and cyber-terrorism. That is the "beauty" of liberalism at work; remember, liberals preach "tolerance"...as long as you agree with them.

Now, here's a little link for all of you to read. It's called "Conservaleaks", apparently after the WikiLeaks site. Go ahead and read the many files in it. There are personal records of private communication, fun banter, some regular chit-chat, and many discussions of the ways and means of protecting Conservapedia from the thugs that try to damage it. Unfortunately, it was a thug who broke into the Google group account in which it was based and posted it out in the open, and this thug did it by following the below statement, which was probably his to begin with:
"I will lie, revise history, cheat, steal and censor to further our goals. What are you going to do about it?"
This individual who did the lying in order to do the stealing calls himself PsyGremlin; in another blog site he calls himself CPmonitor; it was on his site there that he was forced to remove stolen video of my son. All you have to do, reader, is to look up what he's really like by reading his blog; instead of claiming we cannot take criticism, all you can see are the rantings and ravings of of a paranoid who's blindly-obsessive with Conservapedia, as if he has no other life at all outside of his delusions. Instead of "digging the dirt on the crazies out there" as his blog proudly proclaims, he has himself become the crazy in the dirt.

So he has to fire off an email to me, calling me "classy" for ordering WordPress to remove my son's video from his blog, and in another he thinks he's never lied at all, quote:
"what actual damage did Jessica cause CP, besides highlight what a dick TK was? I'd like to see a list."
Of course, he leaves out the damage he caused when "ConservaLeaks" was created, due to his own lying and deceit.
"Ever consider manning up and actually asking me to remove or tone down something you didn't like? or does that offend your persecution complex? Then again, given that Brian isn't even man enough to open the comments section on his blog, there really isn't any more to say."
This is part of his email to me - masquerading as a possibly-fictional "John Lewis" - that just doesn't deserve much of a response. What I will say is two things, and I'm sure Mr. Psy-co is reading this. The first has to do with criticism. Honest, constructive criticsm has more to do with building up, but the evidence from his blog and the so-called "rational" website he trolls in have more to do with unjustified and unwarranted attacks than anything else. He has no intention of anything remotely-resembling criticism. As for the attacks, he has absolutely no excuse.

The second part has what he wanted me to do, which is to "be man enough" and open up my comments section in my blog so he can "criticize" me his way.

Here's what I have to say, and you can call it an honest, constructive criticism of Mr. Psy-co: I don't debate trash. I toss it in the dumpster.

I do hope that's clear enough for a little man like him to understand.

Today, at least since three in the morning, there has been a "denial of service attack" on Conservapedia. What this means to the average layman reading this is a DDoS attack is conducted by the liberal left when they are faced with an idea they don't like; they try to shut it down. It's no different then when someone comes into your room and changes the channel from the TV program you were watching, just to force you to watch what he likes. And this time, it's all because of a simple cartoon on the main page, one that mocks the concept of evolution.

Now, I'm going to give you the reader a historical incident which is similar. It is something where you have to set your Way-Back machine to about the late 1870's, in New York City. The power that held a strangle-hold on New York at that time was the Democratic Party. Democrats ran everything, and everything was a racket to them. To get something built, to get something done, you had to pay kickbacks to some Democratic crony in power, and the man in charge who demanded the greatest amount of cash was William Marcy Tweed. Boss Tweed. He and his Tammany Hall cronies were adept at skimming money off building contracts to the point where they amassed a $12 million dollar fortune (some estimates place the figure as high as $200,000,000), a king's ransom in those days. The contracts involving public works overseen by Tammany and Tweed were riddled with corruption.

Tweed bribed a lot of people to get his way, but he couldn't get past one man who who knew a rat when he saw one: Thomas Nast. Nast happened to be a cartoonist, responsible for the image of the elephant as the Republican Party's mascot, and the current image of Santa Claus. When it came to Tweed, Nast used his pen to point out just how bad the Boss really was. Tweed as a buzzard waiting for the next meal; Tweed in a circle of cronies as they're deflecting blame; Tweed drunk on his own power; Tweed waiting at the voting booth, intending to ensure the proper "outcome" of an election. And those cartoons had a effect, as the walls he had built had shown signs of collapsing. "My constituents don't know how to read," Tweed was supposed to have said, "but they can't help seeing them damned pictures!" And the pictures did have an effect. His corruption was outted; he escaped to Spain, where he was identified through one of Nast's cartoons. He died in a jail cell in 1878.

Here's what we have going on right now. There are people who do not like conservatism; they do not like the morals and responsibility and accountability which is attached to conservatism. They cannot stand God, they cannot stand the Bible, and many of them are quick to dismiss "Jeebus" - as they call Jesus - as nothing more than a farce. And most of all they cannot stand anyone who would adhere to any of it. What they did to Conservapedia during the past 24 hours is very typical of their "philosophy", which is to shut down any kind of speech they don't like. It's to control what goes on in the public sphere regarding speech and ideas, exactly like Tweed attempted to do over a century ago in New York. One could even go so far as to say that this is the liberal's version of what Islamic fanatics attempted to do against the individuals who created the "Mohammed" cartoons in the past few years.

And these same liberals say they're on the side of tolerance? The only thing they actually did was to prove us to be right all along.

And they got offended over a simple cartoon!

Coward, part 2

One coward goes down, it seams, then another crawls out from under his rock. This case has a different angle to it, but the motives are the same.

Set the time machine back to October, 2010. We had a user on Conservapedia named Willminator, and he happened to be the unwilling participant in a fight with a certain individual who calls himself "Jeff Tavolieri". The fight took place via emails, and Will published those emails on his user page for all to see. The last one placed on that page from "Jeff" was this:

Sent: Tue, September 21, 2010 2:06:13 PM
Subject: you will never stop us

"You may have it figured out, but you can never stop us. Let this be a warning to you: I am pro-abortion. I do support population control. I do support letting the weak die (or even helping them die). I do want to take your guns away you. I will see to it that no prayer is ever given in a public school. I will fight to destroy the institution of marriage as you know it. I will indoctrinate your children and insulate them from your religious dogma. I will fight the conservative myth of american exceptionalism. I will fight for a one world government. I will fight for gays in the military even if it weakens it. I will lie, revise history, cheat, steal and censor to further our goals. What are you going to do about it? I will stop at no end, but you have to operate within the fictional bounds of your morality. How can you win this game when I can break the rules? Give it up and get out of america while you still can because nothing will stop us. Do you think you're going to fight? Do you think we would have any problem using chemical warfare or weapons of mass destruction? Do you think we care if women and children get in the way? Face it, we will win. Liberalism and atheism will prevail. The conservative movement will be systematically dismantled and there is NOTHING you can do. Wake up to the facts. Wake up to a war that you simply cannot win."

But it gets better. On the website known as "RationalWiki" this same "Jeff" - who called himself "JeffT" on that site - stated that the emails were made up (see the arrow in the picture); they weren't his, even though he admitted he added the words "and stupid" to the tail-end of one of them dated October 9. So, they're either "Jeff's" emails...or they're not.

Now, advance the time machine forward a couple of months. "Jeff" crawls out again from under his rock and attacks me personally. In another series of emails, "Jeff" decides I was responsible for posting the previous correspondence with Willminator in public and sending them out on the internet. In his whining he says:

"From your latest discussiongroupgate, I see you are the one responsible for forwarding emails around the conservative blogosphere. Do you know what these "conservatives" on those forums have done to me? I have received more hate mail than I can count and no less than a dozen death threats. Somehow, some of these lunatics have gotten my phone number. What do you think about that? Do you think it's funny that these people found out where I work? That they've called and harassed me? That I nearly was fired because of all this? You should be disgusted with yourself."

My response to him:

"Since you have had "death threats" - or so you say - you're going to get a hold of your local police department and file a report. You're going to provide evidence that you did receive these threats, as well as provide your boss's phone number to them as well, so they could corroborate the threat of firing. You're going to explain to them how they were able to determine your private address, phone number, SSN, and other things after looking at a disposable email account which you now have and are replying to me with. You're also going to explain to them - as well as a JUDGE - how you got a hold of "discussiongate," which is a private web-based group meant for others to discuss the ways and means of protecting Conservapedia."

"Jeff" would have none of that. Since this little war was begun, he has continued with his demands that I provide access to my lawyer, details of my location, etc. But even he admitted he's still not sure of what - if anything at all - that I did:

"How in the world do you think that's going to happen without your contact information???

I'm still not even sure what (if anything) you did, because you're not being honest."

The fact is that "Jeff" is the one who's not being honest. He was slaughtered by Willminator in the earlier email series; he admitted those emails were not his; now he's attacking me by stating those emails were his after all. And the "death threats" he claimed? Just where is the police report at detailing them? How he could have received threats of any kind based on nothing more than a disposable email address is beyond me, and when I typed in "Jeff Tavolieri" in Google, I got no references at all for anyone with that name.

Except one.

It's called RationalWiki. A place called a "trash heap" by one, and "inhabited by thugs" by another. They're on record as using "cyber-terror tactics" in an effort to remove Conservapedia from the internet; they're the ones who employ DDoS attacks, major and minor vandalism, links to porn and worse...and all because they were thrown out of Conservapedia when they couldn't get their way. Which means - like the "suicide rant" in Wikipedia back in January and detailed in an earlier posting - this "Jeff" was a fake. So, what he said above back in October applies right now, and he is brutally honest in all of his hate:

"I will lie, revise history, cheat, steal and censor to further our goals. What are you going to do about it? I will stop at no end, but you have to operate within the fictional bounds of your morality. How can you win this game when I can break the rules? Give it up and get out of america while you still can because nothing will stop us. Do you think you're going to fight? Do you think we would have any problem using chemical warfare or weapons of mass destruction? Do you think we care if women and children get in the way? Face it, we will win."

I disagree with you, "Jeff". You lost.


Since I posted this it was only a matter of time - in fact, less than two hours - that "Jeff" would make his response, and this is what he said:

"What you didn't get through your thick skull was that later emails with Will were edited...by Will. Unless you think I'm Will and I was logged into his CP account editing my letter to myself which I posted on my own userpage."

Now the October emails in Willminator's page are back to not being "Jeff's", or heavily altered. If that's the case, if these emails are not "Jeff's" at all, then he has absolutely no reason for attacking me.

And he ends this latest one by saying "You're lucky I don't kick your ass you piece of (censored)". Ahh, I would have loved to see him try to do that, especially in a courtroom. But that has become typical of those whose lies have gotten the best of them, because when they're caught at it, they whine and scream and holler.

Oh well.

And another update...

March 11, 2011.

Now he's got to report me to Blogger; he's upset that I "outed" him as being a fake and a fraud, and as at the beginning, he's got to engage in harassment:

"hey, loser, nice blog. i've contacted blogspot about having it removed and providing logs of your actions."

I'm still waiting for him to carry out his threat of court action. Look's like I'll be waiting a long, long time.
