You Say You Want a Revolution...

National Review recently named the top 100 conservative rock songs of all time. I would point out that 2 spots in the top 10 are occupied by the best band to ever exist. Enjoy.

Southern Pride

On a side note, my dad is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans , SCV (of which I will join shortly.) The SCV has many black members whose family members fought for the South. Blacks are some of the most loyal members of the Society, whose main purpose is to preserve the history and memorials of those who fought for the South. A little known fact in the world of political correctness.

Mexicans aren't all that bad

At least we don't have to deal with Afghani freeloaders. More "refugees" trying to take advantage of Ireland's screwed up system:

Afghans' Irish hunger strike ends
Seven of 41 volunteer to go to hospital; police remove the rest

Irish police patrol outside St. Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin, where the asylum-seekers were holed up Saturday.
All of the men were released on bail on Sunday and ordered to return to court Thursday.
The week-long hunger strike ended peacefully Saturday evening, Ireland's Ministry of Justice confirmed.
The standoff began a week ago when the group of about 41 males refused to leave the church until all of them were granted asylum by the Irish government.The seven youngest voluntarily left in ambulances for treatment for dehydration at a hospital Saturday evening. Soon after that, a large number of Irish police moved in to remove the men who remained inside, according to radio reporter Fergal O'Brien.Despite earlier threats of violence, the men did not resist when police removed them from the church, O'Brien said.The minors were taken into custody of health officials, and the men were taken into police custody, according to a statement from the Ministry of Justice.The exact charges against them are not known.
The youngest of those appearing in court was 18 years old; the oldest, 61.When the standoff began Sunday afternoon -- May 14 -- they said they feared for their lives if forced to return to Afghanistan and would rather die of starvation in Ireland, O'Brien said.It was not clear if there were any special circumstances concerning the men that would make them more likely to be targeted for attacks in their home country, O'Brien said.The Church of Ireland conducted talks with the men for the first five days, until Ireland's Department of Justice intervened and the Garda -- Ireland's national police -- moved in.
Three of the men suffering from dehydration were taken to a hospital Friday and not allowed to return to the church. Earlier, several who were treated by doctors did rejoin the protest.It was not clear what triggered the hunger strike since most of them had not exhausted all legal avenues for asylum, O'Brien said.Some of the refugees arrived in Ireland just in the last weeks, while others have been in the country for as long as three years. At least two already have the right to remain in the country, and deportation warrants have been issued for only two.The standoff has been tense and emotional. At one point, 20 of them climbed to the top of the church organ loft and tied nooses around their necks. They threatened to jump from the 60-foot high balcony if police try to remove them.
Ireland's Justice Minister Michael McDowell said the incident has not affected the department's position "that our system of considering asylum is fair and up to best practice internationally."
"No favours or exceptions will be done for anyone who seeks to thwart the system by actions of this kind and the applicants will now be considered in accordance with the process," the minister said in a statement.

Where are all the Americans?

A Somali arrives in Minneapolis as a new immigrant to the United States.

He stops the first person he sees walking down the street and says,"Thank you Mr. American for letting me in this country, and giving me housing, food stamps, free medical care and free education!" But the passer-by says "You are mistaken, I am Mexican".

The man goes on and encounters another passer-by. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in America!" The person says "I no American, I Vietnamese."

The new arrival walks further, and the next person he sees he stops, shakes his hand and says "Thank you for the wonderful America!" That person puts up his hand and says "I am from Middle East, I am not an American!"

He finally sees a nice lady and asks suspiciously, "Are you an American?" She says, "No, I am from Russia!" So he is puzzled, and asks her, "Where are all the Americans?"

The Russian lady looks at her watch, shrugs, and says... "Probably at work!"

1. Does the nickname of the Georgia/Florida game, "The World's Largest Cocktail Party", make you want to abuse alcohol?

2. Do you think University of Georgia president, Dr. Michael F. Adams, has sand in his vagina?

3. Have you meet any Univesiry of Florida graduate who was not a complete piece of white trash?

Beating A Dead Horse

This well-written article over at TCSDaily eloquently reaffirms what I've been saying in my past few political posts. Put simply, it argues that it's long past time for Republicans to abandon Bush's incompetent and incoherent bloated-government agenda and return to the ideals of classical liberalism, and it lays out how they can do it. At this late stage in the game, they have nothing to lose.

If they refuse to return to these ideals, you can bet that many conservatives, including yours truly, will choose to stay home on election day like when Papa Bush lost in '92.

Your heard it hear first folks. The BMBS nation is organizing a premeditated boycott of the Mount Merpei Relieve effort. You know the lefties and going to be crying about how we need to help these people after this volcano explodes. Well, they need to help themselves by getting the fuck out of there.

Best Case Scenario

Given the current political situation, there may be only one way to cleanse the Republican Party of all its impurities:

- The Democrats take control of Congress in November.
- Hillary Rodham Clinton is elected in 2008.
- Clinton/Pelosi government raises taxes, tries universal health care, starts handing out condoms in schools, bans gun ownership, etc.
- In 2012, after 4 years of Clinton and Democratic rule, the Republican party is finally back to its Goldwater/Reagan roots (no more "compassionate conservative" B.S.) and ready to stand tough on issues like spending, deregulation, and taxes.

UCLA law professor Stephen Bainbridge does a much better job explaining this than I do in his latest post.

"The Democrats are the party that says government will make you smarter, taller, richer, and remove the crabgrass on your lawn. The Republicans are the party that says government doesn't work and then they get elected and prove it." - P.J. O'Rourke

Thought for May 12

I wish I were important enough that someone would want to kill me. Like Bush or 50 Cent. That would mean that the amount of people who hate me would only be as great as the number of people who think I am amazing.

A Little Growing Up

For those of you who might not have heard, the two remaining undergraduate BMBS contributors (Brother Fleming and myself) graduated this past Saturday. Now that this blog is comprised purely of college graduates, no one can argue with our logic. The site's looking smarter already. Cheers, fellas.


R.E.M. performing twice on Letterman in the early 80s. Both were a lot cooler back then. Michael Stipe was still pretty strange. Ryan, this is what ya'll need to sound like. Please bring this sound back to Athens. I'm sick of hearing either country and rap everywhere I go.

Date has been set

The fact that Jennifer and I have set the date of our wedding (4 November 2006 @ 2 o'clock) is not newsworthy enough to be posted on the infamous Beach Music and Boat Shoes Blog. The venue, though, may interest my fellow bloggers:

Thats correct. Fr. Patrick O'Brien will be conducting the ceremony at the Cathedral. Now Cadet Colonel Fleming will actually attend.

Wither Fall Break?

The Savannah Morning News reports:
A proposal to eliminate UGA's 2007 fall break almost became UGA policy last week, but the University Council - the faculty, staff and student advisory body - instead voted to form a committee to research fall break, and short academic weeks in general, for the 2008-09 school year.
Apparently the committee will be researching the effects of fall break over the next few months and will report back at the end of the summer. I've done some research myself, and this is what I've found:
If you give students fall break, then there won't be class on the Thursday and Friday before the Georgia-Florida game. If you don't give them fall break, then there will be class.
Proponents of abolishing Fall Break cite a number of reasons why it makes sense to get rid of it, ranging from... Well, actually come to think of it, they don't cite any reasons, because there aren't any. When asked why he is in strong favor of abolishing fall break, an institution that virtually all students, parents, and most faculty support, UGA President Michael Adams said "I really don't know why. I just like to make people mad. Since it's such a good idea, we ought to get rid of it. It's my job as university president to do what everybody doesn't want."

Why He's at 33%

Because he's not a conservative.

America's Forgotten Pastime

I miss tetherball.

Take that Islamo-Enviromento-Crazies.

This is great y'all. We finally have a nonpolitically correct spokesman for the Catholic Church. It's none other than Cardinal George Pell of Sydney. Not only does he deliver strike at "The Peaceful Religion of Islam", he puts down wacky environmentalist. Here's a blurb about what he's saying:

"The Catholic Archbishop of Sydney, Cardinal George Pell, has angered Australian Muslims with his description of their holy book as an incitement to violence. In a speech delivered to a group of Catholic business leaders at the Legatus summit in the United States, the Archbishop also took aim at what he claimed were hysterical and extreme claims about global warming.
Dr Pell's central argument is that an understanding of Islam is vital for the future of western democracies. September 11, according to the Cardinal, was a wake-up call that prompted him to dust off a copy of the Koran.
"I recommend that you too read this sacred text of the Muslims, because the challenge of Islam will be with us for the remainder of our lives," he said.
Cardinal Pell says the Koran is riddled with so many invocations to violence that after about 50 or 60 or 70 pages, he stopped taking notes of them.
He also says that considered strictly on its own terms, Islam is not a tolerant religion and its capacity for far-reaching renovation is severely limited.
He points to the difficulty that scholars and commentators face when analyzing the Koran, such as receiving death threats and violence when questioning the divine origin of the holy book." Cardinal Pell also spoke about the environment, in response to recent worries expressed about global warming:
The Cardinal's speech described concerns about global warming as "hysteric and extreme".
He says these worries are a symptom of pagan emptiness.
Cardinal Pell says in the past, pagans sacrificed animals and even humans in vain attempts to placate the gods, but today they demand a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions."

Congratulations, TC

On a serious note, Congratulations to our own TC Madison on his engagement to Jennifer...doesn't matter, she'll be a Madison soon anyway. TC has the distinct honor of being the first in our circle, and outside the Pyramid, to take a step towards the altar. This is good, since TC was practically made for the married life.

I'm getting weird-drunk at your wedding, buddy. Good stuff.

"I'll have a gallon of cola"
I don't know if you have heard about this yet, but they are getting rid of all drinks with sugar in schools. This brings a few things to mind for me. First, I thought that this is a pretty retarded idea because kids can just bring cokes or what not to school and that completely defeats the purpose of this entire thing. Then, I thought that maybe this will help some kids realize, "hey, I am fat as shit and probably should not eat so much or have so much sugar in my diet". Then I realized that I was giving this kids too much credit and that obesity rates will continue to "grow". Haha. When are people going to realize that when they get fat, they look ugly and that most people don't like ugly people. It's a scientific fact.

Movies 2006

While all we really had last year was Episode III, luckily there are lots of potentially great movies coming out this year to make up for it. Here are a few previews...

A French version of this teaser for Casino Royale came out a few days ago, but here's the English version.

Here's the sequel to the Pirates of the Carribbean:

And most importantly, the movie that will surpass Lord of the Rings as the greatest thing put on film, ever. Superman Returns.

Notre Dame Tailgating?

I've always been told that Notre Dame tailgating is second to none. Take a look at this video(scroll down). Probably the biggest collection of tools I have ever seen in my life. Which brings me to my next point and that is that Notre Dame would be alot cooler if it was in the South. Too many yankees up there to fuck things up. I bet if it was in the South then the SAT standards would be lower and I could have gotten in. Or I could have just claimed minority like my cousin did.
