Who[m] to blame for 7/7

If you take a gander around the world wide web, a.k.a. the interent, cyberspace, the United Geekdom, etc. you will find people (supposedly) starting to point fingers at who[m] to blame for yesterday's bombing attacks in London. You will find, of course, the obvious: al Qaida. Then there are those blaming George W. Bush and Tony Blair and their greedy war-for-oil for the attacks. Not far behind you'll find it was all a Zionists plot colaborated by Benjamin Netanyahu and the Joooooooos. Refusing to be left out, poverty is clipping at their heels for some attention, too.

Yet, no one is really looking closely enough in the most obvious direction: I blame Phillip Johnson and his disdain for gall bladders:
For London, the first week of July 2005 was like the summer of '69 packed into one week... For me, however, it's been a more or less typical week on the road... Stuff always goes wrong when I travel.
Then a commentor on his site left this:
I’ve traveled with Phil several times. On one trip to India we had a small earthquake, a major train derailment (we were on the afternoon train, and the evening train to our destination is the one that derailed), the building across the street from where we were staying went on fire, we had several black outs, and the lavatory door on the airplane came off in Phil’s hand. Other than that it was without event.

I always check to see where Phil is going before booking holiday plans. I suggest you do the same.
Do you need anymore evidence?

UPDATE: You people have been coming from PyroManiac and didn't even bother to mention my spelling mistake. For shame! I am very, very disappointed.

I hope they learn this time (Doubt it. - Ed)

Needed 225,000. Turned in 420,518!

Wha....????? (UPDATED; moved to top)

If this turns out to be true...

UPDATE 7/8: Witnesses say it was a suicider on the double decker bus. This after ABC reported yesterday Brit authorities were leaning towards all bombs detonated remotely. Looks like at least one was carried out in person.

Bugga' off!

Here's my offering...

Ken Schram makes sense today... (tomorrow?)

Yeah, I think there is a whole lot Clinton could have done to combat islamofacism while in office (kinda like that judge in Minnesota who could have set the pervert's bail much higher than $15,000), but it wasn't his or Bush's fault.

Close to home

One of the Editor's Best Buds is currently in London for an evangelical conference at the Metropolitan Tabernacle. First email I read this morning was his:
I was on my way to the Metropolitan Tabernacle for the day to hear the guys teach and my friend (name deleted) literally closed the gate at the High Street Kensington tube station in my face.

I said "(Deleted), open the gate I need to go to Elephant and Castle." Once he got over the surprise of me being in London he said, "It's up the hill on the left, they have a great ale." I said "Not that Elephant and Castle, the tube station in Lambeth". He said, "Sorry Mate, all the tubes are closed. Some Blokes blew up a train at Alders Gate, killed a bunch of people." He said, "You aren't goin' to Elephant and Castle today." And he was sooooooo right.

So... After trying to get on the tube this morning, I then thought I'd take the bus, but then I saw a bus on the television that the upper deck was blown off and I thought that maybe I wouldn't take the bus after all. :<)

There's more to the email, but that's for me.


In light of this post by Suzy Rice...

(some words changed for appropriate context)...
Gary Johnston: We're d*cks! We're reckless, arrogant, stupid d*cks. And the (liberals) are p*ssies. And (islomofacists are) asshole(s). P*ssies don't like dicks, because p*ssies get f**ked by dicks. But d*cks also f**k a**holes: a**holes that just
want to sh*t on everything. P*ssies may think they can deal with a**holes their way. But the only thing that can f**k an a**hole is a d*ck, with some balls. The problem with d*cks is: they f**k too much or f**k when it isn't appropriate - and it takes a p*ssy to show them that. But sometimes, p*ssies can be so full of sh*t that they become a**holes themselves... because p*ssies are an inch and half away from a**holes. I don't know much about this crazy, crazy world, but I do know this: If you don't let us f**k (these) asshole(s), we're going to have our d*cks and p*ssies all covered in sh*t!

Hey terrorist! Terrorize this.

It's because of the Iraq war, isn't it?

Said the sea lion, "My bad! I thought he looked like a wild pacific salmon in the water. He should have had a surf board, or something, so he would look more like a sea lion. That way I wouldn't have attacked him."

Why do we get these mountains of clothes? No one is freezing here.

There are so many choice quotes in this article you have to read all of them (Via Wizbang):
Local farmers may as well put down their hoes right away; no one can compete with the UN's World Food Program.

AIDS is big business, maybe Africa's biggest business. There's nothing else that can generate as much aid money as shocking figures on AIDS.

The late tyrant of the Central African Republic, Jean Bedel Bokassa, cynically summed it up by saying: "The French government pays for everything in our country. We ask the French for money. We get it, and then we waste it."

... and they flood our markets with that stuff. We can buy these donated clothes cheaply at our so-called Mitumba markets. There are Germans who spend a few dollars to get used Bayern Munich or Werder Bremen jerseys, in other words, clothes that that some German kids sent to Africa for a good cause. After buying
these jerseys, they auction them off at Ebay and send them back to Germany -- for three times the price.

Why do we get these mountains of clothes? No one is freezing here.

Can't we all just stay on our bikes?

Via Drudge's front page:

That following David Zabriskie's crash with 1.5 km left in yesterday's TdF team time trial.

These things happen in 3's, you know. Americans are warned to stay off their bikes in Europe.

Go Isotopes!

I didn't know Homer was a Steelers fan.

Affirmative camping????

The madness has got to stop.

UPDATE: I like what commentor JCM at Sound Politics had to say...

From now on recreation preference will be assign at birth. This will guarantee a proper diversity at recreational activities.

You will be required to participate 4 times a year at you own expense in your assigned recreational activity.

You may not participate in recreational activities to which you are not assigned.

You may not trade assignments with other as this would upset the balance achieved by assigning activities.

Those already living will be assigned an activity. Please turn all related equipment in to Recreation Central.

You will purchase equipment at Recreation Central for your assigned activity.

Now go out and enjoy your recreational activity.

That is all.Big
Brother Out.

Actually, come to think about it, I'm not too fond of that. We're way too close.
