Fortress Amerika - Day 220

Amerika's borders are like a sieve. Each year our national borders are crossed repeatedly by a non-citizen who leaves mysterious packages around the country. Do the Minutemen care? Does the President care? Do the Democrats care?

No. None of them care. It's up to you and me, fellow Patriots. We must stand tall and say "This far and no farther!" If our elected officials won't defend our country, then we must do it ourselves!

And who is this threat? Who threatens our liberties with his blatant disregard of the borders of the Land of the Free™?

It's Santa Claus. The world's most dangerous terrorist threat, and the most high profile undocumented worker!

As we gear up to celebrate the season of Santa and give gifts to each other, we forget that Santa is not an American! He is a "citizen of the world." In other words, he is opposed to nationalism, and thus, opposed to Amerika and everything she stands for! And we let our children venerate him! How can we allow the worship of this illegal alien?

It's time to stand up and demand that Santa be shot down by our Air Forces if he violates the borders of our sacred homeland. Never again shall terror fall from the skies!

My employer's ISP did a scrub of their servers on Monday, erasing our modem's IP address from their system. On Tuesday, they were convinced it wasn't our computers, and turned in a work ticket. Yesterday we were still down, with no prospect of ever being back up.

I never realized I used the Internet that much at work.

I am a part-time geek. I try to keep aware of the latest fads and trends, but don't often actually keep up. I don't have a IM program, for example, but I know a bit about what's out there. Ever since the demise of Tech TV and The ScreenSavers, I stopped keeping up.

I was happy to discover DL.tv. Patrick Norton and Robert Heron, Tech TV Screen Savers, host the show, and it brings back a lot of fond memories. As an added bonus, it's a fun show, too.

Police in Canada are reminding citizens that they should draw their blinds to prevent prowlers from peeping on them.

Hmm. Blinds are the housing equivalent of burkas. It keeps prying eyes away from your privates, and prevents temptation.

I recently decided to take up oil painting. I have been drawing all of my life, but I've never really tried painting. So for the last three months or so, I've been slathering paint on canvases trying to learn the Bob Ross wet-on-wet technique.

I watched bob paint on PBS for years before he died in 1995. Then the local PBS station stopped broadcasting his shows. Bob made it look so easy to paint, and I knew that it had to be quick. If it took more than a couple of hours, I would never finish a painting. It's this ADD thing I have.

I've been posting my paintings over at my family blog. Now that I have eleven canvases, I've got some hits and some misses.

Guess what some of my family members are getting for Chri$tma$.
