How long should you keeo a BlackList 

Good Morning,  !
Today is Sunday, July 21.

By now, everyone's just about had it with the Westboro 
Baptist Church, a group whose members use national tragedies 
as opportunities to forward anti-gay hate speech. Ironically, 
their planned protests often bring communities together in 
opposition to their message. 

Some of you will remember the "Pervert Alerts", where I listed
the locations, where the perverts were planning to be a 
nuisance at a hero's funeral. Eventually some laws were
created, forcing the perverts to stay away from funerals.

After the ACLU forced the government to order the military 
to accept gay people. After that, the Westboro Perverts 
started their protest actions, making a racket at heros 
funerals and screamming that IEDs were God's revenge
and they were thanking God for killing soldiers.
They were also doing their insane protests at the funerals
of miners killed in mine accidents, claiming that the mine 
accidents were God's punishment for allowing gay people 
into the military. I really don't give a hoot about the 
gay issue, but I don't think it gives the perverts a right
to be a nuisance at a hero's funeral.

Now, an unlikely group has mounted an offensive against 
the perverts.
On Sunday, July 14, the Satanic Temple, a New York-based 
organization that seeks to foster "benevolence and empathy 
among all people" through Satan, performed a ritual called 
a "pink mass" at the Mississippi gravesite of Catherine 
Idalette Johnston, mother of WBC founder Fred Phelps Jr.

The aim? To "turn" the WBC founder's mom gay for all eternity.
"Upon completion of the pink mass ceremony, Catherine Johnston 
is now gay in the afterlife," notes the Satanic Temple website, 
which has the cheeky URL 
"Fred Phelps is obligated to believe that his mother is now gay ... 
[and] if beliefs are inviolable rights, nobody has the right to 
challenge our right to believe that Fred Phelps believes that 
his mother is now gay."

The latter assertion appears to be a play on the WBC's own 
stance that their beliefs are totally infallible.

The Pink Mass was performed twice -- once with two gay men, 
and once with two lesbians -- in an affirmation of the 
Satanist Temple's belief in "freedom and the pursuit of 
happiness for all people." The temple is now encouraging 
same-sex couples to visit the grave and perform their own 
pink masses.

According to the Satanist Temple website, temple spokesman 
Lucien Greaves officiated the ceremonies while wearing horned 
headgear, and then proceeded to put his penis on Johnston's 

Even though I am neither gay nor a Satanist, I find it 
hilarious that the Satanists are mocking the perverts.

Thanks to Martin for this story: We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the \ "seniors's special" was two eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99. "Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs." Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her. "You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" My wife asked incredulously. "YES!!" "I'll take the special." "How do you want your eggs?" "Raw and in the shell," my wife replied. She took the two eggs home.
After the christening of his baby brother in church, little five-year-old Johnny sat in the back seat, unusually quiet. Very softly he started to cry until his father noticed him sobbing. "What's wrong, little Johnny?" asked his father. Between sniffles little Johnny replied, "That priest said he wanted us brought up in a good Christian home, but, but, but I want to stay with you guys!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ashley Taylor Wright, 23, Pensacola, Floriduh Ashley Wright To Deputy: "You Will Have To Shoot Through My Baby To Get To Me" Reported by The Weekly Vice Ashley Taylor Wright, a 23-year-old Florida woman, was jailed Monday after she allegedly threw her baby at deputies when they tried to arrest her for shoplifting. According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, Wright was at the Santa Rosa Mall in Mary Esther Monday evening when she allegedly used a baby stroller to smuggle $260 worth of clothing out of a Dillards department store. When a deputy approached her out in the parking lot, she hopped into a car and told her husband (who was the get-away driver) to flee the scene. When the deputy blocked the vehicle and ordered Wright to exit the vehicle, she held up her baby and told the deputy "You will have to shoot through the baby to get to me." She then tossed the child, who was strapped into a baby carrier, at the deputy's head and tried to flee the scene on foot. The deputy ducked and avoided getting hit by thw bay in the baby carrier and promptly tackled the bimbo to the pavement and placed her into custody. Wright was booked into the Okaloosa County Jail and charged with child abuse, petty theft and resisting an officer. Tech Support Pits From: Eliza Re: How long to keep blacklist? Dear Webby You mentioned at one time how long to keep addresses in the Mailwasher blacklist. I am quite happy with MailWasher, but I noticed that the blacklist file is getting quite large, and sooner or later that must be putting a load on my machine. And how do you deal with spammers that keep changing their forged sending addresses? Eliza Dear Eliza MailWasher generally ignores the sender address, unless it is in the blacklist, since most spammers forge their sender address anyway. MailWasher checks the content of spam. Persistent spammers like the Bed & Bath crooks are best dealt with a filter. It takes 20 seconds to make a filter, and you never see mail from those crooks again. To keep the blacklist short and fast, I age it off in two days. By then the spammers usually change their address anyway.

Daily tip from Conditioner For Shaving Ever wonder what to use those 'conditioner' samples that come in the mail or brands you didn't care for? Well, wonder no more! I keep those little gems for when I need to shave. I find the packets difficult to open in the shower, so just pre-open them or squeeze them all into a bottle or jar. Much cheaper than shaving gel or foam, and much nicer on your skin. A breeze when travelling too! By Laurie Young F. Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at
Two youngsters were closely examining bathroom scales on display at the department store. "Have you ever seen one of these before?" one asked. "Yeah, my mom has one," the other replied. "What's it for?" "It's a cussing machine," the second boy answered. "Every time she stands on it she gets really mad and starts cussing at me or dad."
