Number 8 on my list is:
Halle Berry as Giacinta "Jinx" Johnson in "Die Another Day."
Just look at her body. David Justice is an idiot for letting her get away. By the way, she was 32 years old when she filmed the movie.
Here is a small piece of trivia: She received an injury on the set of Die Another Day. Halle was injured on location in Cadiz, Spain while shooting an action sequence that involved Pierce Brosnan firing on a helicopter being flown by Rick Yune.
"Switch them off, or I'll be half the girl I used to be!" - Halle Berry as Jinx from the scene in the movie "Die Another Day" when the lasers are threatening to cut her in
I wish I could put the music to "Eli's Coming" by Three Dog Night to these words. They fit perfectly.
I am not diminishing the treat of Hurricane Gustav. It could end up here in Texas. But sometimes a little bit of humor can ease the tension and the stress.
Gustav's comin' (Gustav's a-comin')
Well you better move your butt, your loving butt
Gustav's a-comin' and the cards say... a big-ass storm!!!
Gustav's comin', move your butt, girl
Gustav's comin', move your butt, boy
Girl, Gustav's a-comin', you better move
Boy, Gustav's a-comin', you better move
Girl, Gustav's a-comin', you better move
Boy, Gustav's comin', move your butt, boy (move it)
You better, better move your butt
Gustav's comin', better run
Run but you'll never get away
No, you'll never get away
From the wind and the rain
Your'll run to Texas by the coast
Think about going somewhere else,
(we done want you here)
Gustav's a-comin' (they ran but we don't want them in Texas)
Gustav's a-comin' (they ran but we don't want them in Texas)
Gustav's a-comin' and he's comin' to git ya
(they ran but... they ran but...)
Get down on your knees
(they ran but they never got away)

All or most of these items should be public knowledge, at least for a person who desires to occupy the White House.
I would like to know the answers to these questions from BHO
Below is a list of some documents of yours that cannot be located anywhere.
These documents seem to have literally vanished! Most all are "public records", so perhaps you can help, so the "electorate" can corroborate and understand the many claims you have made. I mean, after all, you are presenting yourself as the "next President of the United States" and I'm sure you would want to be "open, honest and above board" on all matters.
So. where are Your -
Occidental College records
Your Columbia College records
Your Columbia Thesis paper
Your Harvard College records
Your Selective Service Registration
Your medical records
Your Illinois State Senate records
Your Illinois State Senate schedule
Your Law practice client list
A Certified Copy of your original Birth certificate
Your embossed, signed paper Certification of Live Birth
Your Harvard Law Review articles that were published
Your University of Chicago scholarly articles
Your Record of baptism
The citizens of the USA would appreciate your prompt and honest response.
PS: And just how does one manage to "expunge" such public records so effectively?
"When I ran for the U.S. Senate the assumption was that any one's name that was close to "Osama" doesn't stand a chance. So if somebody thought that tacking on "Hussein" in there would be a killer, then I think they underestimate the American people and the seriousness of the problems we face." - Barack HUSSEIN Obama in a January 1, 2007 article of Newsweek magazine.

The fight did not materialize but I cannot help but think that Hillary is working behind the scenes to bring down BHO. It seems to me that it is in her best interest for McCain to win in November in order to give herself a chance to run for POTUS in 2012.
In any case, the convention had two people speak this evening. The were Lieutenant General (retired) Claudia Kennedy and Rear Admiral (retired) John Huston.
These two retired officers are former leaders in our military. I cannot believe that anyone involved with the military in any capacity could, in their right mind, support BHO.
From my research, both of these people seem to have had very storied careers in the military. I will do some research and see what I can find out about these two people. They both have just made my "List of Famous (or Infamous) Mooks."

My Lovely Bride says this was a smart move for BHO. She said this could be the choice that pushes him ahead in the race and gives him some experience on the ticket. She is a smart lady, and has a way of seeing things that I do not.
BHO was going to pick someone that help him look experienced.
It will be fun to watch DNC convention next week. I hope Clinton and her supporters tear them into shreds. That will make it easier for McCain to win in November.

The TRUTH is I loved disco when I was in college. I always knew the way to a woman's heart (or anything else) was by dancing.
As far as this song, I always like it and YES, I even liked the movie.
Look at the cast: George Carlin, Ivan Dixon (Hogan's Heroes), Antonio Fargas (Starsky and Hutch), DeWayne Jessie (aka: Otis Day from Animal House), Lorraine Gary (Jaws), Bill Duke (Predator) and Richard Pryor.
They were all in it. A great cast. Sit back and enjoy Rose Royce performing "Car Wash."
PS: The lyrics are below. That will be my quote for today's post.
You might not ever get rich
But let me tell ya it's better than diggin' a ditch
There ain't no tellin' who you might meet
A movie star or maybe even an Indian chief
At the car wash
Workin' at the car wash, girl
Come on and sing it with me
Sing it with the feelin' ya'all
(Car wash, girl)
Some of the work gets kinda hard
This ain't no place to be if you planned on bein' a star
Let me tell you it's always cool
And the boss don't mind sometimes if you act the fool
At the car wash
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Talkin' about the car wash, girl
Come on, ya'all and sing it for me
Oooh oooh oooh
(Car wash, girl)
(Work and work)
Well, those cars never seem to stop coming
(Work and work)
Keep those rags and machines humming
(Work and work)
My fingers to the bone
Can't wait till it's time to go home (?)
(Hey, get your car washed today)
Fill up and you don't have to pay
Come on and give us a play
(Do the wash, right away)
(The car wash)
Talkin' 'bout the car wash
Car wash, girl
Come on, ya'all, let's sing it with me
Sing it with feelin', ya'all
(Car wash, girl)
Whoa whoa whoa whoa
Never seem to stop comin'
What'd I say
Keep those rags and machines hummin'
Let me tell you, it's always cool . . .

This movie came out in 1973 when I was a freshman in college. It was the first film I remember seeing the actress in and was overcome by her beauty. With the help of very little makeup, her naturally beauty was quite evident. And those eyes!!! Oh my gosh, those eyes. They could see into a man's soul and know everything; past, present, and future, about said man.
The actress was 22 years old when she made this film and her innocence, coupled with the sexiness of the character, is a natural fit for number 9 on my list. She was an excellent choice as "THE" Bond girl for Moore's debut as 007.
Jane Seymour as Solitaire in "Live and Let Die"
[Bond has just explained the first two Lover's Lessons to Solitaire]
Solitaire: Is there time before we leave, for Lesson number 3?
James Bond: [undressing] Of course. There's no sense going out half-cocked.

One of my favorite movie genres is James Bond. I try never to miss a James Bond movie when they come on. Now that I have a DVR, I record them in case I have other commitments when they air.
I am going to start a 10-part list with his blog post. My list will entail, in my opinion, the 10 hottest Bond girls. I do not want to hear anything about this post as being sexist. My Lovely Bride has issued her official Stamp of Approval for the posts.
Britt Ekland as Mary Goodnight in "The Man with the Golden Gun"
She has those eyes. The eyes that can only come from seeing the world as an adventure. She has a petite figure and a well proportioned body. Her character was adventurous, inquisitive, impulsive, a bit naive, and last of all sexy. In addition, who can forget her bikini on Scaramanga's island? She is a great start for number 10 on my list. Britt Ekland was 32 years old whent he moive was made in 1974. "The Man with the Golden Gun" was Moore's second movie as 007.
[Mary Goodnight, a prisoner on Francisco Scaramanga's island, appears in a bikini]
Francisco Scaramanga: Ah, here's Miss Goodnight now.
James Bond: Aren't we a little overdressed, Goodnight?

68) Look at my education record in Illinois - LIAR - In reality, Obama never really championed the local councils. He supported them behind the scenes and only eventually came out publicly on their behalf. When he did weigh in, he came down on the wrong side of the debate—against protecting principals from unwarranted dismissals and in favor of keeping councils independent, no matter what. In the end, the resolution of the conflict between the two sides didn’t alleviate anyone’s concerns. Instead, it prolonged a turf battle that seems to have dragged down academic progress in the years since. Read more here http://www.slate.com/id/2188010?wpisrc=newsletter

67) “I don’t think my church is actually particularly controversial,” Obama said at a community meeting in Nelsonville, Ohio, earlier this month. - LIAR - But yesterday, he told a different story. “Did I ever hear him make remarks that could be considered controversial while I sat in church? Yes,” he said in his speech yesterday in Philadelphia.
66) I did not take money from oil companies: - LIAR - [03/31/2008]
THE FACTS: True enough, Obama does not take money from oil companies. No candidate does. It is illegal for corporations to give money to politicians. Corporations, however, do have political action committees that collect voluntary donations from employees and then donate them to candidates. Obama doesn’t take money from PACs. He also doesn’t take money from lobbyists.
But he does accept money from executives and other employees of oil companies and two of his fundraisers are oil company executives. As of Feb. 29, Obama’s presidential campaign had received nearly $214,000 from oil and gas industry employees and their families, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics. Clinton had received nearly $307,000 from industry workers and their families and Republican Sen. John McCain, the likely GOP presidential nominee, received nearly $394,000, according to the center’s totals.
Two of Obama’s fundraisers are Robert Cavnar, the chairman and chief executive of Houston-based Mission Resources Corp., and George Kaiser, the president and CEO of Tulsa-based Kaiser-Francis Oil Co. Source: Associated press via Yahoo News
65) I did NOT play the race card: - LIAR - [03/31/2008] Obama was the first to play the race card. According to Phialdelphia Inquirer, Quietly, the storm over the hateful views expressed by Sen. Barack Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, has blown away the most insidious myth of the Democratic primary campaign. Obama and his surrogates have charged that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has deliberately and cleverly played the race card in order to label Obama the “black” candidate. Read more here
64) I played greater role in crafting liberal stands on gun control, the death penalty and abortion - LIAR - [03/31/2008] It was found that Obama — the day after sitting for the interview — filed an amended version of the questionnaire, which appears to contain Obama’s own handwritten notes added to one answer. Read Obama had greater role on liberal survey
63.) I have the best plan to cure the Mortgage Crisis - LIAR. [03/30/2008] You and your campaign buddy Penny SubPrime Bank Collapse Prizker have had your little fingers full of subprime cash - Obama has taken $1,180,103 from the top issuers of subprime loans: Obama received $266,907 from Lehman, $5395 from GMAC, $150,850 from Credit Suisse First Boston, $11,250 from Countrywide, $9052 from Washington Mutual, $161,850 from Citigroup, $4600 from CBASS, $170,050 from Morgan Stanley, $1150 from Centex, and last but certainly NOT LEAST - Obama received $351,900 from Goldman Sachs. I am sure that cash all came from folks who knew the subprime loan they had was a dream, eh?

Michelle Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will be the featured first-night speakers at the Democratic National Convention, which also will include a videotaped message from Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy.
Michelle Obama will be introduced by her brother, Craig Robinson, a former basketball star at Princeton and now coach at Oregon State, on the first night on Aug. 25. Barack Obama's half sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, also will have a role at the convention.
This sure sounds like the Democratic National Convention will be a good old fashion family reunion.
I wonder if BHO will fly in all his kinfolk for all over the world to celebrate in his coronation?
This guy really give me the proverbial "hee-bee jee-bees." I shutter to think what will happen if he gains the White House. His Presidency could set this country back 100 years.

I for one am glad some of these citizenship issues are being looked into. There is no counting the number of people who claim they were born here and in reality, had forged credentials.
Some will say this issue targets Hispanics (Mexicans). I say so what. I look around my area of Texas and I see so many Mexicans who steal our public services, demand the fruits of our country, yet have no right to them.
I top it off, they refuse to assimilate into our culture; holding on to the culture of their true country.
I could not care less if these people are having their citizenship questioned. I am willing to bet that the majority do have forged credentials.
"The men who do not become Americans and nothing else are hyphenated Americans; and there ought to be no room for them in this country. The man who calls himself an American citizen and who yet shows by his actions that he is primarily the citizen of a foreign land, plays a thoroughly mischievous part in the life of our body politic. He has no place here; and the sooner he returns to the land to which he feels his real heart-allegiance, the better it will be for every good American. There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else...." - Teddy Roosevelt

"Somebody must stand up and defend my sister," she said. "I wish that those involved would refrain from bad-mouthing my sister."
Hunter's sister said Rielle was being falsely portrayed as a "promiscuous person" and was not involved in "setting up" Edwards last month at a Beverly Hills hotel, where he was confronted by reporters from the National Enquirer.
"She is a good and honest person, the sweetest and most caring woman one could ever hope to meet," Melissa said. "Do you think it's easy for us to just sit back and let everyone rip her to shreds and not defend her honor?"
How can someone be a "good and honest person, the sweetest and most caring woman one could ever hope to meet" when they are sleeping with a married man when his wife has cancer.
IMHO, she is as much a piece of trash as John Edwards is.
Meanwhile, the editor of the Enquirer, which broke the story of the affair and Hunter's pregnancy, took issue with Edwards's statement distancing himself from photos purporting to be him holding Hunter's baby. Edwards admitted to ABC that he met secretly with Hunter at the Beverly Hilton to try to "keep this from becoming public."
Last week, the Enquirer published a blurry photo of a man who looks like Edwards holding a baby. The tabloid said the photo was taken at the hotel.
Edwards denies the photo is genuine.
Yeah...right!!! As I have said before, they both are a couple of MOOKS!!!
"I don't know if that picture is me. It could well be. It looks like me. I don't know who that baby is. I have no idea what the picture is." - John Edwards

Rielle Hunter's lawyer, Robert Gordon, says his client is a private individual who wishes to maintain the privacy of herself and her daughter.
In a statement, Gordon says that Hunter is ruling out any kind of testing that could establish who the daughter's father is.
On Friday, Edwards admitted to having an extramarital affair with Hunter in 2006 but denied that he was the father of Hunter's five-month-old daughter. Edwards said he will take a paternity test to prove he is not the father.
Of course she is refusing. That can only mean that Edwards has already paid her off to keep her mouth shut. Edwards stating he would take the test is a diversionary tactic.
What a couple of MOOKS!!!
"...Although John believes he should stand alone and take the consequences of his action now, when the door closes behind him, he has his family waiting for him." - Elizabeth Edwards
Friday, August 8, 2008
Hunter was paid $114,000 by Edwards' political action committee to produce web documentaries for Edwards' campaign.
Edwards denied he is the father of her child and has offered to take a blood test to prove it.
Yeah, right. And I am going to vote for Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
"Two years ago I made a very serious mistake, a mistake that I am responsible for and no one else. In 2006, I told Elizabeth about the mistake, asked her for her forgiveness, asked God for his forgiveness. And we have kept this within our family since that time." - John Edwards in his interview on August 8, 2008.

In this video, a previously little known group calling itself the Turkestan Islamic Party claims it carried out several fatal bombings in the country in recent months.
The group's self-described military commander, Seyfullah, said it was responsible for incidents in Shanghai in early May and in the southern city of Kunming on July 21that killed a total of five people.
He also said the group had bombed a plastics factory in the province of Guangdong.
Most ominously, he threatened to carry out further attacks during the Beijing Olympics, which are scheduled to open on tomporrow.
As before, the video begins with Beijing's Olympic logo in flames and with a grainy image of a sports facility superimposed with an animated bomb blast.

Below is a clip of all the James Bond Gun Barrel Openings. They include all standard James Bond movies up to Casino Royal (2006).
Six actors have played James Bond in the 22 EON Productions of James Bond. "Never Say Never Again" was not an EON movie, but it is included in the clip because it had Sean Connery returning to play 007.
I have listed the six 007s in my order of preference. Please feel free to agree or disagree. The clip is posted below the list.
1. Sean Connery
2. George Lazenby
3. Roger Moore
4. Pierce Brosnan
5. Timothy Dalton

The skis are now clear in the area and reports from the area are anticipating 3-4 inches of rain with 8 inches of rainfall a possibility.
Governor Rick Perry (aka Governor Zoolander) has put state emergency management officials on alert to make sure people, property, and criminal aliens are taken care of.
Galveston has not been ordered to evacuate and people are taking a watch and see attitude.
IMHO, this is going to be a storm with a great deal of rain, some wind, and numerous newscasters standing in ankle and thigh deep water tell everyone how bad the storm is.
People I know in the area are not going to evacuate, but did inform me people are hitting WalMart and loading up on batteries, water, can good, and beer.
All this hoopla is much ado about nothing. A storm is coming. It is going to rain. People are going to get some wind.
My suggestion is to hunker down, watch television with a loved one, and enjoy Tuesday off from work.
More reports will be posted when they occur and if they are needed.

This would be the first storm to reach the area and it is only August. The National Hurricane Center has the projected track of Edouard hitting the Texas coast sometime tomorrow night.
It is unclear whether the storms in the Gulf area are a precursor of TS Edouard, but the rain and cooler temperature will be a welcome relief from the ehat.
No matter what happens, the area is going to get hit. Just how seriously the hit will be remains the question.
"As of now southeast Texas remains firmly within the storm's crosshairs, and we cannot rule out Edouard becoming a hurricane before landfall -- some might argue that's more likely than not -- on Tuesday." - Eric Berger (SciGuy in the Houston Chronicle)

While China has allowed access to some websites that were blocked earlier in the week, many sites still remain inaccessible to reporters covering the Beijing Olympics that start on Aug. 8. On Friday the IOC had said the issue had been resolved.
Read the article here.
I expected this kind of mess from the ChiComs, but it seems that the IOC is a enabler by allowing this to happen. They knew the ChiComs would pull this crap and they are allwoing them to do as they please.
Let's see what else comes out of Beijing.

"It’s downright sad that on a day when we learned that 51,000 Americans lost their jobs, a candidate for the presidency is spending all of his time and the powerful platform he has on these sorts of juvenile antics. Senator McCain can keep telling everyone how ‘proud’ he is of these political stunts which even his Republican friends and advisors have called ‘childish’, but Barack Obama will continue talking about his plan to jumpstart our economy by giving working families $1,000 of immediate relief."
I call the act of a man writing a prayer on a piece of paper and placing it in Westen Wall and supposely having it stolen as juvenile antics.
Frankly, when all of this started, I got suspicious. No one retrieved McCain's prayer note when he visited there in March. In fact, I can't remember any public figure's prayer being published.
Obama spokesman Bill Burton flatly denied the contention that Obama's prayer, in the form of a note slipped into the Wailing Wall, was "approved for publication."
"That didn't happen," he said in an email. "We have neither confirmed nor denied the prayer to anyone."
This in apparent response to the claim of the publishing newspaper, Ma'ariv, that "Barack Obama's note was approved for publication in the international media" before Obama even arrived at the Wall.
What a conniving little weasel BHO is. He did this to gain favor in the Jewish community. Nothing more...nothing less. Is this the kind on man we want in the White House calling the shots.
I THINK NOT!!!
