CRONKITE: KARL ROVE BEHIND BIN LADEN TAPE? Sat Oct 30 2004 16:31:19 ET Former CBSNEWS anchorman Walter Cronkite believes Bush adviser Karl Rove is possibly behind the new Bin Laden tape. Cronkite made the startling comments late Friday during an interview on CNN. Somewhat smiling, Cronkite said he is "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing." Interviewer Larry King did not ask Cronkite to elaborate on the provocative election eve observation.
Walter... Call your shrink. The meds aint working. Is Crondyke suggesting the White House has -that- kind of a relationship with the country's chief enemy? Thaw out Joe McCarthy I say, and lets reinstate the "sedition act".
I am so SICK of this left-wing liberal falsehood.
Debate me on facts... Don't bury me in bullshit I say.
It seems there was this 14 yr old asspipe that liked to make crank 911 calls on his cell phone. And apparently, they caught him. This I think, is a very good thing. Bogus 911 calls cost money/time/effort... And the take resources away from real emergency calls. Hope this peckerhead gets slammed hard.
However, something you ALL should note is -how- this reprobate was caught...
Global positioning technology is built into most newer cell phones.
''The thing that tipped us off was the kids laughing and cutting up in the background,'' Rich said, ''that, and our GPS technology, which followed his trail.''
And if that does not bother you... perhaps you no longer need a foil hat. Does the thought of someone (and lets face it, with the openness of the web these days, someone=anyone) being able to track your location from your cellphone make you feel warm and fuzzy?
I like they caught the douche... Just not happy with how.
And that boyz-n-girlz is why I have yet to get a cell.
On average, you pay $50 for the game, and another $15/month to play. What if there was a game out there that was only $25 to purchase, took only 15 min to install and patch, and was only $5/month to play?
Basic gist fo the game would be you log in, and are presented with a few buttons...
1) Find Uber Loot
2) Killed Uber Boss Mob (which gives you Uber Loot)
3) Grief another player
4) You win! (cancel account).
I think a game like that would be much more painless, dont you?
"Catacombs marks the first time that Camelot has used dungeon "instancing" where players and groups can adventure in their own private adventuring areas - an entire adventure spawned specifically for you or your group alone. Includes private tasks, private dungeons, and more!
For those play sessions where you don't have much time, you'll have your own content. Private Adventuring is available to all levels and dynamically scales in difficulty depending on the makeup of your group!"
Ummm..... Hello? AO has them.... CoH has them... What the hell took you guys so long?
The entire MMORPG industry is about to piss me off. Sorry, it may be that I am just pissed about that Horizons email I got. Horizons was supposed to be "the way". And had corporate greed and backstabbing not happened, it very well could've been.
Time for me to adjust the foil hat, and get away from the PC I think.
"We understand a lot of people left for various reasons..."
No they didn't. They left for one reason alone... you people suck. Period.
"We think you'll like the new changes. Your account information is still here, waiting for you to reactivate..."
Ummm.... My beta account?
I did not buy this game. I was a beta tester, and bailed on release. I have to say, this is the FIRST game I have ever done a beta for that I did not eventually purchase. Yeah, it sucked that much.
I don't see myself in Istaria anytime prior to a lobotomy.
Buggy graphics, buggy gameplay.... lag like nobody should be subjected to. Needless to say, the bloom is off the rose now.
Shadowlands expansion is fun...For the first 40 levels. Then suddenly you need to be level 100 to stand a chance. There's no .... Ummm, what's the word.... "Balance" here.
Game sucks, dont buy it.
Now what the hell am I going to do?

"Jesus? Is this what you would do?" I asked...
"Why my son... Yes."
So there you go. Now you know why that is there. ----->
Because God told me so.
Also, there is a neat direct search tool to Google which I suggest you give a try sometime if what I say ever seems questionable. I know that won't see much use though, right?
Just -knew- I should've taken the rush delivery option.... but an extra $7 was just in my thinking then.
Well, as mentioned it arrived like yesterday... and I think I may have already worn grooves into the cd. I LOVE this cd! I want this cd to have my children, grow old, and retire with me....
Man I am happy now.
Ok, show's over...move yer collective asses on for now.

I have lost 2 Aunts, 2 Uncles, one remotely related (but loved) elder lady, and 3 good (12 years ago) friends to the insatiable maw of death.
And I had to find this out over the internet... ?!?
To what few family members I still have living in Eastern Tenn.... Fuck you all. Not a single phone call or letter letting me know people I cared about no longer breathe? You can all rot in hell for all I care.
And I just KNOW you were all like "how sad he didn't even bother to come to the funeral"...
You're all dead to me.
Sorry, but that's just shitty not to allow me the chance to grieve properly.
Well, back in AO for not very long (3 maybe 4 weeks now) and I am getting bored. I suspect the new Martial Artist I am working may be the cause, but I am not 100% sure.
In the old-school AO game... an MA dominated... It would level like nobody's' business... And was nigh unstoppable. Seems they have been molested by Uncle jimmies nerf bat sometime in the last 2 yrs. Keeper was faster in levels.... but I might be biased on that.
Oh well, at least the money is still coming fast.

Here's hoping she joins us.
Times have changed.
My Keeper most likely would be staring at level 100 by now... But, I opted to be helpful to my guild and am working on my Enforcer. My Keeper will stay at 59-59 for a while I think. I want a weapon in the Temple of the Three Winds. And you can not enter there after level 60. So, he's on hold until I can find a team to get me what I need.

I'm looking forward to a nice 5-day weekend. I deserve it after the week of hell I just went through. So much to do yet in the office, but I'm going to let it slide and enjoy my time off. I may even take a day trip to my old hometown to see who's still alive. Then again, I might just stay home, level my enforcer like mad, and drink a lot. I see a coin toss in my not-so-distant future.
On the upside, my ferret is still alive. She's old enough to be collecting social security (in ferret years) and I fully expected to come home to a vacant cage. She's not much longer on this earth. I'm glad she's held on long enough for me to be back home.
I'll write more as my mind settles back into the routine of daily life. Right now, I think I am going to lay in bed, and play a round of "coma".

"What city it this? ...Ah shit. Saigon. Why'd it have to be Saigon..."
"...Waiting on a mission... Everyday I spend here I get weaker, and every day Charlie spends in the bush, he gets stronger..."
Thank gawd there is no ceiling fan in this room, or I might start doing my Tai-chi forms in my underwear...
The big project happens tomorrow night, and if all goes well nobody will ever notice. But something always happens when things like this are done, so it's done at night so fewer people will notice. If nothing "major" goes wrong, I might be home by Monday. I fear I will not see home by Wednesday. I miss my wife and kid. I miss the dog. I miss a PC with connection better the 'tin can and string' connection I can pull from this hotel phone line. *sigh*
Well, hopefully my 12 Girls Band CD will be waiting on me when I get home.
Later. Going to beat up the mirror.

I'm already "jonesing" for AO, and I have not even left yet. Dang, how can a game become so addictive after less than 2 weeks?
I know why, actually. FunCom finally figured it out. With the Shadowlands release, levelling/money-making got stupid quick. That tends to pimp the power-gamers, and addict the casual players. Reason being: Both see immediate progress.
Back "in the day" prior to SL's release, I would've had to spend -at least- 3-6 weeks of hard running to make 1 million credits. The really "cool" stuff usually runs about 5-20 million. Out of desperation, many will go to Ebay for cash in this game. Then comes Shadowlands, and a paradigm shift.
Suddenly, I am sitting on 5 million credits...with barely 2 weeks of play, and at level 55 no less.... All solo. Old-schoolers of AO are spinning in their collective graves no doubt.
I imagine it's a trade-off for the loot tables of Rubi-Ka (the world of AO pre-SL/Jobe). On RK, you get cash with every kill you make. Not so on Jobe/SL. The only cash there is from loot that you sell. And some critters drop some very fine things. It's a sure thing that for each sack I fill while hunting in SL dungeons.... I will make 300-500k credits easy. Nothing in RK will compare. So, if you are thinking about buying AO... I -highly suggest- you get the Shadowlands booster. It's literally a night-and-day difference.
Anyway, as I can be playing much.... I'll try to update here more. There is a book or two I want to look at while on this trip. Front of the list is a book by Daniel Flyn. It looks like a rather rare/interesting non-fiction read. If I get into it, I'll keep you posted.
Until I return... Keep the soda cold, and your thumbs pumping!
I question if I am living in the right hemisphere when I listen to the amazing sounds these ladies produce.
What the hell is going on? Did blogspot get a worm/virus/Trojan or some shit? Come on, enough already! I don't have too many coherent thoughts, but when I have one... I would like to post it.
