Bacon. Mmmmm, bacon.....

SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- A Washington State Patrol trooper shot and killed a runaway 500-pound pig after the officer's stun gun failed to slow the animal.
The Spokesman-Review says Trooper Morgan Mehaffey first saw the pig running down a sidewalk in Spokane Valley in eastern Washington Friday after it escaped from a minivan through a broken window.
The trooper herded the animal out of traffic with his patrol car, pushing it back onto the sidewalk. Mehaffey then tried to slow the animal with his stun gun so some volunteers could rope it.
The paper reports that when that didn't work, the pig's owner told the trooper to shoot the animal.
Mehaffey says the owner had just purchased the pig for breeding.

Who cares what it tastes like - Gotta get some

What a devout muslim he was

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A stash of pornography was found in the hideout of Osama bin Laden by the U.S. commandos who killed him, current and former U.S. officials said on Friday.
The pornography recovered in bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive, according to the officials, who discussed the discovery with Reuters on condition of anonymity.


He was probably beating off to back issues of Shepherd Weekly.

Go to hell, hippie, go to hell

NEWSCORE - A mob of angry protesters chased a would-be flag burner at Louisiana State University (LSU) off campus Wednesday to chants of "USA, USA."

Graduate communications student Benjamin Haas had earlier been given permission by the school to burn the flag. But because he lacked a local burn permit, he agreed instead to read a statement in an area of the university known as free speech alley.

As Haas read the statement, a crowd around him erupted into cheers and jeers, many shouting "Go to hell, hippie, go to hell."

"You had a lot of people on both sides of the debate getting into a lot of fights," said James Haralson, manager of Tiger TV, the university television station. "The students started yelling obscenities at him. People started throwing bottles at him."

Fox News reports that Haas' actions were in response to the arrest of another student, who was charged with taking and burning the American flag once posted at LSU's War Memorial. That incident came just hours after Osama bin Laden's killing by US Navy SEALS last week.

Haralson, who filmed the protest, said Haas was surrounded by police officers on horseback and as they protest swelled, they moved him to a safer location.

"At that point, all the students began rushing him, continuing to throw trash at him," he said. "He was finally escorted into a cop car in the street and students were banging on the cop car."

LSU spokesman Ernie Ballard said the school endorsed neither Haas' actions, nor those of the crowd around him.

Word of the potential burning had sparked pockets of anger throughout the campus.

"It's time that my generation stand up for what they believe in and exercise their freedom of speech and let people know that we are not OK with this," said Cody Wells, the student government association president. "I am angry that an individual would want to do this at a public higher education institution."

Our local neighborhood thief

Notice he has his eyes closed? It's a common tactic amongst convicts, knowing that eyes are what people remember the most, that's why cons try to blink when their mug shots are taken.
That's all good, motherfucker. I'll never forget your face.
Alto was keeping him busy when his ol' lady shagged her ass down to my place this weekend for backup.
He won't be around our neighborhood again after we dealt with his ass. We reached an "understanding".
Neighborhood Watch in action. Old School Neighborhood Watch, that is......
I can handle a liar, I can understand a fucking junkie but I hate hate hate a thief.

Fighting knives

Why in the fuck is it that all these so-called fighting knife makers have the finger grooves on the same side as the edge?
Anybody that's even slightly familiar with knife fighting knows that if you slash down, you hit bone. You slash up, you hit tissue. Think about it - down, you connect with skull, shoulder, or ribs. Up, you're getting throat and gut.
True, if you're having to resort to a knife then you're in serious shit but that's just my point - you're desperate and NEED to end it now.
The best fighting knife I ever owned was a Gerber Mk II dagger that I talked a Legionnaire out of in a bar in Paris, but that was stolen from me a couple of years back by an ex-friend.
I did buy a knife made by SOG that has potential last month. It's got a 6" heavy blade, shaped like a meat knife, but it has no hilt, just a groove in the blade to fit my index finger, but again, it's on the wrong side. With some slow filing (so as to not ruin the temper) I can shape it to fit my thumb comfortably, but why in the hell am I having to do that?
What I do like about the knife is I can undo the keeper and the knife is secure, but pull it out 1/2" and while the sheath will retain it even upside down, it's quick and easy to pull.

Never mind the dog hair on the carpet, CharlieGodammit is shedding like a motherfucker and I haven't vacuumed in a couple of days.
My everyday knife is a Buck 110 in a nylon holster. I've used lapping compound so that can open it one-handed, I've cut serrations on the thumb rest, it's razor sharp and I put in the holster the same way every time so that I can pull it, open it quicker than a switchblade and put it away blind, but it's a tool although it can substitute as a decent fighter in a pinch.
Does anybody have a suggestion for a decent fighting knife for under a hundred bucks? Keep in mind that carrying a dagger is a felony here in Kalifornia (carrying a firearm is either a misdemeanor or felony at the discretion of the officer, figure that one out) and I want a legal weapon. Remember, heavy blade, finger grooves on the opposite side of the edge, but grooves are optional, I can do without them but the handle has to be ergonomical.
Any help would be appreciated

GOP runners

I gotta tell you, I'm not following the presidential race so far - it's way too early to even think about a decision as to who I'm going to support but I have to say a couple of things about 2 of the GOP candidates.
Donald Trump - you're a fucking joke. True, you've got a huge fortune and you obviously know how to balance a budget and manage money, but you're notoriously anti-military, you have a reputation for financial ruthlessness (think eminent domain here, asshole) and your hairpiece is fucking ridiculous.
Newt Gringrich - nobody takes you serious either. If you were to by-some off-the-wall chance win the primary, you'd be handing Obama a victory. Fuck off.

Seriously. I think of all the candidates so far, Herman Cain is my choice. But if LTC Allen West were to throw his hat in the ring, he'd have my vote hands down. He understands that a strong military is essential, he obviously has organizational skills (keeping a military unit in beans & bullets AND earning their respect is no easy task) and above all, he has some fucking balls.
But what do I know, I'm just a dumbass redneck........
