    Saturday February 12, 01:26 PM 'You picked the wrong man' A young punk who tried to mug an 88-year-old picked the wrong man -- his intended victim turned out to be a former boxing champion who knocked the attacker out cold. "I was visiting a friend's grave when a young, long-haired man came up to me and demanded I hand over my money," said granddad Gerhard Brinkmann of Halberstadt, Germany, who was the country's top lightweight boxer in 1936. "I told him to come closer if he wanted it and, as he did, I landed a full-force right hook on...

    BALTIMORE (AP) -- A 29-year-old Maryland man was charged with theft after calling NFL players Donovan McNabb, Darrell Green and Warren Sapp and convincing them to wire him money. Lewis Sills of Elkridge, Md., faces multiple charges of theft and identity theft after stealing or trying to steal from McNabb, Sapp and Green, Howard County police said. fter persuading Green and McNabb to wire him money, Sills called Sapp, who became suspicious, police said. The Oakland Raiders defensive lineman's financial manager contacted police, who arrested Sills after he picked up money he believed was from Sapp. "We have not been...
  • Quagmire! Democrats and the Radical Left.

    Quagmire! Democrats and the Radical Left. by Political_Man During any polarized election the loser is bound to be distraught over the results, no matter which party actually ends up on the wrong side. After the 2004 Presidential Election, Democrats are understandably searching for answers. It’s natural to ask questions such as “What went wrong” or “What can we do next time” after losing several Senate seats and the White House for 4 more years. What has not been natural in the post election assessment is the answers Democrats have come up with in response to those questions. Some have responded...
  • Pottery Barn Rule? ---- Vanity

    10/01/2004 7:14:46 AM PDT · by Honcho · 18 replies · 756+ views
    I thought the whole Pottery Barn reference was a very clunky and goofy argument for Kerry. I'm very suprised that no one pick up on it afterward and I was very disappointed that Bush didn't make a joke of it. Something along the lines of "I think Senator Kerry needs to come clean to the American people and admit that he's never been to the Pottery Barn." I really think it could have gone a long way toward softening the President's image last night. Any other thoughts on this?
  • Who Cries for Saddam?

    Who Cries for Saddam?by Political_Man While a majority of the Democratic Leadership has been arguing that the White House is in a “quagmire” in Iraq, it seems that they have talked themselves into a political quagmire of their own. There are some valid points to be made about the way the War in Iraq has been handled but the fervor at which the left has pursued these matters have lead to the most preposterous conclusions. One of the best (or worst) examples is when Democratic Congressmen Charles Rangel expressed the sentiment on the Fox News show Hannity and Colmes...
  • The battle cry of Class Warfare

    The battle cry of Class Warfare by Political_Man The White House announced this week that the President has decided on a new economic stimulus package. According to most reports the meat of the President's plan calls for the elimination of all taxes paid on dividends, acceleration of the tax cuts currently on the books for 2006, and an increase in the child credit by $400. Of course don't forget that first part. It's the portion of the President's plan that is going to garner the most attention and is probably the most important part. While consumer spending has been up...
  • The Middle East: The Lost Front

    The Middle East: The Lost Front by Political_Man The Cold War was unlike any seen in human history. For the first, and perhaps the last time, two countries did battle not with weapons or with men but with economic systems. More than that, every aspect of both societies was at work against the other. The Cold War was a battle of propaganda, technology, and even culture, with each side pitching to the world that theirs was better. Of course the military was involved as an expression of power and might, but the build up of armaments on both sides...

    U.S. to hand over seized missiles 'No clear authority' to seize Scuds bound for Yemen Wednesday, December 11, 2002 Posted: 1:33 PM EST (1833 GMT) SANAA, Yemen (CNN) -- The United States will allow Yemen to take possession of a shipment of Scud missiles seized by U.S. and Spanish forces in the Indian Ocean, U.S. and Yemeni officials said Wednesday. The decision came after Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh discussed the incident with U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney and assured Cheney the missiles would be used only for the defense of his country, Yemeni officials said. Yemeni officials said Wednesday...
  • Political Man needs your help !!!! (Vanity, call for web designers for small conservative website)

    I'm a Unix Admin with a web server, some bandwidth, a message forum and an idea. The problem is like most Unix admins, I'm not an artist. Soooooo, I'm looking for some conservative web designers, photo shop gurus, artists for a new website. I don't expect much from it, just a little fun and a way to get the message out. The idea that I'm going with is the World's first Political Superhero, who has commentary on the web site about whatever the topic of the day is. My plan is for it to be a platform to talk about...
  • Big noises at odds over the sound of silence

    07/01/2002 6:35:35 AM PDT · by Honcho · 7 replies ^ | 21 June 2002 | David Lister Media and Culture Editor
    By David Lister Media and Culture Editor 21 June 2002 'The Sound of Silence' may have prompted engaging harmonies from Simon and Garfunkel – but a more literal appreciation of the absence of noise has prompted one of the more curious copyright disputes of modern times. Mike Batt, the man behind the Wombles and Vanessa Mae, has put a silent 60-second track on the album of his latest classical chart-topping protégés, the Planets. This has enraged representatives of the avant-garde, experimentalist composer John Cage, who died in 1992. The silence on his group's album clearly sounds uncannily like 4'33", the...

    Remember Bill Clinton? You know the former president. Well that's just the problem: The drive to help terror victims has Clinton pals and Little Rock officials worried that Americans will stop donation to the ex-prez's library. That's a prob for Little Rock: They've invested $16 million and hope for returns by 2004.

  • VANITY: The dems say they want a bi-partisan government. Let's give it to them.

    05/25/2001 3:17:12 PM PDT · by Honcho
    One possable(but not likely) scenario would be to broker a deal with one moderate Democrat. You would only need one for this to work. Lott should offer Zel Miller majority leader in exchange for chairs on half the committees. How could this happen you say? Well if all the GOPers vote for Miller and Miller votes for himself. That's a 50/50 tie folks with the VP to break the tie. We could offer the "only true bi-partisan" government. The left would have a VERY HARD TIME ARGUING AGAINST THIS ONE. I only wish our side had the balls to do ...
  • Open letter to the members of the Florida Congress

    11/21/2000 9:40:27 PM PST · by Honcho
    Dear members of the Florida House and Senate, I'm 29 years old and I've been a conservative most of my adult life. I grew up during the Reagan Revolution. Having a troublesome relationship with my father, Ronald Reagan was my hero. When my father had no faith in our country, I could always look to President Reagan as my example in faith. Now as I watch the events having taken place over the last 8 years, I find myself wondering where the Robert Baldwin's of the new millennium have to turn for their example in faith. My step-son, 16 years ...
  • My theory on what Gore might be doing...

    11/08/2000 8:58:57 PM PST · by Honcho
    I've got a theory that Gore could be disputing the vote in Florida as a way to appeal to the electorical voters to change their vote when the "real" vote takes place. Gore could actually make an appeal to the public and to the electorical voters asking the "real voters" to change their vote on the basis that the Florida popular vote was unfair and that he is winning or has won the popular vote anyway. I think that for this reason Oregon could be a bigger victory for Bush than anyone realizes. This could buffer GW from any electorical ...
