Bush wants 50 billion more for his illegal disastrous invasion of a sovereign nation or otherwise known as the Iraqi Clusterfuck. My analogy of Bush and Cheney in casino continually racing to the ATM with our tax payers money keeps ringing true.
I remember one of the main issues of the 2000 campaign was which candidate would do what with our budget surpluses. Surpluses? that is a good one.
Now, the Democrats are the party of fiscal discipline and the Republican party continues to support unlimited spending of tax dollars for nation building. Ronald Reagan must be rolling around in his grave.
The National Debt is now 7.9 trillion and rising.
Some debt is not a bad thing but having too much is quite obviously bad fiscal behavior. Go ask any American straddled with large payments on their credit cards. How long do you have to pay the interest before you can actually pay the capitol.
In Fiscal Year 2006, the U. S. Government spent $406 Billion of your money on interest payments* to the holders of the National Debt. Compare that to NASA at $15 Billion, Education at $61 Billion, and Department of Transportation at $56 Billion.
We spend 4 times the money on the interest on our debt than we do on education and transportation COMBINED!
This 50 billion that Bush wants is additional from the $460 billion in the fiscal 2008 defense budget and the $147 billion in a pending supplemental bill to fund the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Nor does it include the 456 Billion that we already have spent in Iraq.
I am sure Congress will cave and keep giving Bush all that he wants. I have no idea how to end this Fn war and I am scared shitless that he will start another one with Iran before his god awful White House tenure is over. Read this if you think a Iran war is far fetched.
It was the 2 year anniversary of Kartina. Remember the disaster that nearly wiped out one of our coolest cities. Bush's boy Brownie the horse trader sure knew how to respond. The disaster knocked the invincibility swagger out of the Bush Administration's sails and they have never ever recovered. It unmasked their total incompetency and highlighted their lackluster compassion towards poor people. The strategy of blaming state and local officials was highly ineffective. People wanted results and actions.
Wonder if those people could use some federal money not caught up in red tape?
It’s hard to get an accurate estimate because the [cost of occupying Iraq] mounts so rapidly every minute. Can’t help wondering how much farther along the [Gulf Coast] rebuilding would be, how much more could be spent to improve public education, insure the 43 million Americans without health insurance, ad nauseum. Great legacy you’re leaving, George.
I could not have said it better myself.

Skip to My Lou created the whole And One phenomenon with his Mix Tape. His moves were sick! If it was not for Skip to My Lou, the And One Tour and Shoe line would not be anything.
In the NBA, Skip to My Lou was Rafer Alston, a journeyman, who had one good season with the Heat and got a huge contract out of it. He was ran out of Toronto for a bad attitude and played last season in Houston.
Htown's smog and out of control sprawl must be getting to him. In less than a month, he has spit out on a parking attendant and now just slashed some dude at a NYC nightclub.
He will always be Skip to My Lou to me, no matter if its Skip to the Pokey.
Check out just one of his videos.

The Southeast part of America just freaks me out. I just can not get the whole Jesus Christ/Nascar worshiping thing or the racist views/rampant use of NBombs behavior.
The South does possess 2 great qualities that I love entirely:
College Football and Super Hot Women.
This new site, SEC POON, bring them together into one. Even though I have seen most of those poon pix before, I am just speechless.
Thank You for NOT including any pictures of Jenn Sterger. She recently completed the American dream by parlaying her fun bags/internet fame into a gig with CNNSI.com. It is 2007 and Sterger is still smoking hot but she is OLD POON! NEXT!
I love the word POON, I could say it all day and it NEVER EVER gets old. POON
Thanks to WithLeather for the Tip.
OH, I am not endorsing dudes that wear ties to football games. Saturday Gamedays are meant for "No Jerseys" attire no matter what! Skin to Win BABY!
(For those not intertwined with Mac G slang, No Jersey means, not wearing a shirt.)

My girl Maria demolished some chump chick, 6-0, 6-1, last night in the first round of the US Open. Maria was sporting a new silky sexy red dress that had the drool working overtime.
My new hottie favorite, Ana Ivanovich, advanced as well. Ana was looking very voluptuous in violet and here is an interview of her.
Enjoy the Pix, Happy HUMPDAY!

I once saw KC Royals Kevin Seitzer go 6 for 6 in baseball game and I thought that was an impressive feat.
Until I read this article about Broncos RB Travis Henry.
Henry, 28, has fathered nine children by nine women in at least four Southern states and has been ordered by various judges to provide child support for seven of them, according to court records involving one child living in DeKalb County.
9 for 9! Unbelievable. Mr. Super Sperm, Move Over Shawn Kemp.
It is hard to get one person pregnant but to knock up 9 different women is a near impossible feat.
Henry wanted to gather his illegitimate kids up to watch their Sperm Donor/Father at training camp. Henry's lawyer had this money quote.
"I know these are a lot of kids, and there might be some questions about it," he said, "but he's a really committed father."The only thing he seems committed to is buying 100K gold chains/cars instead of paying child support. Henry's commitment level to the "Raw Dawg" can never be questioned either!
100% Injury Rate updates his list of Athletes with Illegitimate Kids. It is a must read.

Mac G's World plans to have an ongoing segment of posts called "Today in 07." These will focus on events of our world or pop culture that could only take place in current day 2007. I heart the 90s debuted on MGsW last week. It might appear to have a 3rd segment focusing on Closeted Gay Republicans trolling in bathrooms and blowing sleeping dudes. Trust me I do not.
I have a MySpace account and I check it from time to time. I have done my best to avoid becoming a crackspace addict. MySpace is a good way to keep in touch with people and stalk people that you just met! I am always checking out new bands or keeping up to date with my favorite music groups.
When I first signed up to MySpace, I had a friend request from this girl that I grew up with and I never was good friends with her so I denied her request. I had not seen this girl in at least 10 years or maybe more. She went crazy, started messaging all of my hometown friends on their myspace pages and talking trash about me. I found it hysterical and I could have cared less. She has 4 kids with 3 different dudes and I was ready to fire away some message to her like "leave me alone, little Sally needs changed, stop spreading your legs, whore." Finally, I reached out the olive branch and asked her to become my friend, it was the only way to end this dumb madness. She accepted and made some sarcastic comment, whore.
My point is that all of sudden becoming or denying someone as your MySpace friend became a new social pressure. Even who you list as your top friends can cause friction between friends.
Since this incident, I have not denied a friend request to anyone that I knew already but it turns out maybe I should have. On MySpace, you can write bulletins, which basically go out to all of the people on your friends list. It is like a massive Spam Email. They are very popular communication methods to send information to wide range of people instantly. Bands are constantly sending updates.
I received this bulletin from a girl I grew up with.
I BET THAT THERE ARE A LOT OF YOU ON MY FRIENDS LIST THAT DONT EVEN BOTHER TO READ MY BULLETINS. SO THIS IS WHAT I AM GOING TO DO. WHEN I SEE THAT ONE OF YOU HAVE REPOSTED THIS I WILL GIVE YOU A PICTURE COMMENT. SO THIS IS JUST TO PROVE WHO IS AND WHO IS NOT A TRUE MYSPACE FRIEND. SO IF YOU THINK YOUR A GOOD MYSPACE FRIEND REPOST THIS. AND IF YOU DONT THINK YOUR A GOOD MYSPACE FRIEND DONT BOTHER TO REPOST THIS. THIS IS JUST TO KNOW WHO UR TRUE MYSPACE FRIENDS ARE.....repost this as "To ALL my MySpace Friends"
I have no idea how to respond to this at all. There is a slight possibility that she might have been MySpaced hacked and this was sent by someone else.
Or she is NUTS and just threatened all of her MySpace to admit they read her JC bulletins.

I am having a hard time digesting this story but Republican Senator, Larry Craig (Idaho) was arrested last month for lewd behavior at the Minneapolis airport. Senator Craig was trying to find a jolly time for his "distinguished gentleman" in a men's room but he was busted by an undercover cop in the stall next to him. He pleaded guilty and paid the fine.
My 3 initial thoughts.
- What is going on with hard core conservative Republicans, bathrooms and gay sex?
- The article states that Airport police previously had made numerous arrests in the men's restroom before in connection with sexual activity. Do people really blow some steam off in bathrooms at an Airport? I have heard some crazy stories in my years on this planet but never ever I have heard of dudes hooking up in airport restrooms. I thought this sexual activity only took place in shady public parks and rest stops.
- Maybe the Cop was just a disgruntled groupie of the "The Singing Senators" and had it our for their lead singer, Craig.
The hypocrisy continues.
Here is the full Roll Call Article.
Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) was arrested in June at a Minnesota airport by a plainclothes police officer investigating lewd conduct complaints in a men's public restroom, according to an arrest report obtained by Roll Call Monday afternoon.
Craig's arrest occurred just after noon on June 11 at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. On Aug. 8, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct in the Hennepin County District Court. He paid more than $500 in fines and fees, and a 10-day jail sentence was stayed. He also was given one year of probation with the court that began on Aug. 8.
A spokesman for Craig described the incident as a "he said/he said misunderstanding," and said the office would release a fuller statement later Monday afternoon.
After he was arrested, Craig, who is married, was taken to the Airport Police Operations Center to be interviewed about the lewd conduct incident, according to the police report. At one point during the interview, Craig handed the plainclothes sergeant who arrested him a business card that identified him as a U.S. Senator and said, "What do you think about that?" the report states.
Craig was detained for approximately 45 minutes, interviewed, photographed, fingerprinted and released, and police prepared a formal complaint for interference with privacy and disorderly conduct.
According to the incident report, Sgt. Dave Karsnia was working as a plainclothes officer on June 11 investigating civilian complaints regarding sexual activity in the men's public restroom in which Craig was arrested.
Airport police previously had made numerous arrests in the men's restroom of the Northstar Crossing in the Lindbergh Terminal in connection with sexual activity.
Karsnia entered the bathroom at noon that day and about 13 minutes after taking a seat in a stall, he stated he could see "an older white male with grey hair standing outside my stall."
The man, who lingered in front of the stall for two minutes, was later identified as Craig.
"I could see Craig look through the crack in the door from his position. Craig would look down at his hands, 'fidget' with his fingers, and then look through the crack into my stall again. Craig would repeat this cycle for about two minutes," the report states.
Craig then entered the stall next to Karsnia's and placed his roller bag against the front of the stall door.
"My experience has shown that individuals engaging in lewd conduct use their bags to block the view from the front of their stall," Karsnia stated in his report. "From my seated position, I could observe the shoes and ankles of Craig seated to the left of me."
Craig was wearing dress pants with black dress shoes.
"At 1216 hours, Craig tapped his right foot. I recognized this as a signal used by persons wishing to engage in lewd conduct. Craig tapped his toes several times and moves his foot closer to my foot. I moved my foot up and down slowly. While this was occurring, the male in the stall to my right was still present. I could hear several unknown persons in the restroom that appeared to use the restroom for its intended use. The presence of others did not seem to deter Craig as he moved his right foot so that it touched the side of my left foot which was within my stall area," the report states.
Craig then proceeded to swipe his hand under the stall divider several times, and Karsnia noted in his report that "I could ... see Craig had a gold ring on his ring finger as his hand was on my side of the stall divider."
Karsnia then held his police identification down by the floor so that Craig could see it.
"With my left hand near the floor, I pointed towards the exit. Craig responded, 'No!' I again pointed towards the exit. Craig exited the stall with his roller bags without flushing the toilet. ... Craig said he would not go. I told Craig that he was under arrest, he had to go, and that I didn't want to make a scene. Craig then left the restroom."
In a recorded interview after his arrest, Craig "either disagreed with me or 'didn't recall' the events as they happened," the report states.
Craig stated "that he has a wide stance when going to the bathroom and that his foot may have touched mine," the report states. Craig also told the arresting officer that he reached down with his right hand to pick up a piece of paper that was on the floor.
"It should be noted that there was not a piece of paper on the bathroom floor, nor did Craig pick up a piece of paper," the arresting officer said in the report.
On Aug. 8, the day he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct in the Minnesota court, Craig appeared via satellite at a ceremony that took place in Idaho in which former Idaho federal Judge Randy Smith was invested into his new position as a judge on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
UPDATE: Talking Points Memo has found this item on the web page of the Idaho Values Alliance, a family based group who loves Craig and his ultra conservative voting record. It needs no further explanation.
One of the tragic characteristics of the homosexual lifestyle is its emphasis on anonymous sex and multiple sexual partners. It is a little-acknowledged secret that many active homosexuals will have more than 1,000 sex partners over the course of a lifetime (the average among heterosexuals is seven – still six more than we were designed for).
This sordid fact of homosexual life surfaced yesterday in an AP article yesterday that reports on the number of arrests police have made for indecent exposure and public sex acts in the restrooms at Atlanta’s airport, the busiest in the world. The increased restroom patrols, begun to apprehend luggage thieves, instead uncovered a rash of sex crimes. Airport restrooms have become so popular that men looking for anonymous sexual trysts with other men have advertised their airport availability on Craigslist. One such ad was from a man saying he was stuck at the airport for three hours and was looking for “discreet, quick action.”
Where to start? Gays have 1000 partners and straight people only have 7? I do not even have a comeback for this utter nonsense. I do love the "6 more than we are designed for line." It made me chuckle, out loud too.
The best part of all these family groups that hate gays and passionately despise gay marriage is the fact that these same people have very little if any contact with gay people on a daily basis. Even if I hated gay marriage and I do not, it would not bother me because I never have seen any gay people get hitched before. It is not like straight people can not get married because all of the gays are taking their slots at churches. I do know one thing hetersexual people are good at: Divorce.
Having state and federal governments recognize civil unions of law abiding American citizens that love each other is not a bad thing. The rationale for civil unions is not taking away from heterosexual marriages or their rights, nor does it strike down their religions beliefs but this has always been about getting EQUAL rights for homosexual partners, not special ones.
Gay people DO NOT choose their life style either. Name me one good thing our society does for gay people? Typically, gays are ostracized from their families and loved ones. They are discriminated against, unable to get married or procreate on their own. Why would anyone look at our society and go F IT, I want to be gay. Maybe this is why all these conservative republicans are turning up in bathrooms looking to suck cock because they have been suppressing their true sexual identity. I have no clue, ask Dr Phil or Sean Hannity.
I guess I was WAY out of the loop when it comes to gay sex in airport bathrooms. According to this article, it is common in the Atlanta airport. This Idaho group gets all fired up about a personal Craigslist ad. There are freaks on Craiglist? SHOCKER! I met a drunk in a bar last night too.
UPDATE II: TPM finds this quote from Criag about the Union Station allegation.
Craig denied the man's account and said, "I am not gay and I have never been in a restroom in Union Station having sex with anybody.
"There's a very clear bottom line here," Craig said. "I don't do that kind of thing. I am not gay, and I never have been."Once again, I repeat being GAY is not the issue nor is exchanging BJs in disgusting public restrooms. These public officials have supported discriminatory policies against gays but all have been busted engaging in the same type of behavior they are railing against.

The US Open Tennis tournament starts today in Flushing Meadows and it is one my favorite sporting events. Another classic 2007 Federer/Nadal final is expected but a few other players(Roddick,Djokovic, Blake, Hewit)could take one of them out.
However, I highly doubt it.
On the woman's draw, I will be cheering for my girl Maria to defend her 06 title. My new tennis crush is Serbian hottie, Ana Ivanovich. MEOW! Check out the video. Happy Munday!
