TV Land pulls reruns of 'Dukes of Hazzard'

Until the hysterical hypocrites in the leftist media stole 
the rebel flag and renamed it back to "confederate flag", 
a name it had long graduated from, it was just the Rebel Flag. 

The Rebel flag is NOT the KKK flag. The KKK always used 
the regular US flag. In all their parades and posturing,
the KKK always had regular US flags.

Since WWII or even before, the flag with the Scottish 
St Andrews Cross was the Rebel Flag.
It stood for rebellion against the feds, authority and just 
general adolescent rebellion, high speed driving, BBQ, and 
the Dukes of Hazard.
Incuding Daisy.

There is a petition against martyring the Dukes at, 
at an awfully long address, so I made a TinyURL for it:

Have FUN!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rick Ross, 39, Fayette County, Georgia
Rapper Rick Ross Arrested on Kidnapping, Assault Charges Rapper Rick Ross is accused of forcing a man into a guesthouse at his suburban-Atlanta mansion and beating him in the head with a handgun, chipping his teeth and mangling his jaw so badly that he's unable to chew food, authorities say in court records. Ross was taken into custody Wednesday by a U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force and sheriff's deputies at the mansion in Fayette County, south of Atlanta. Ross, 39 — whose real name is William Roberts — was jailed without bail on kidnapping, aggravated assault and aggravated battery charges, said Jim Joyner, a supervisor with the Marshals Service task force. Ross' bodyguard, 42-year-old Nadrian James, faces kidnapping and aggravated battery charges stemming from the same incident, arrest warrants state. The June 7 attack left the man with injuries that included two chipped teeth and a neck injury, authorities said. "The victim lost use of his jaw and is restricted to soft foods and liquid diet only as a result of not being able to chew food," an arrest warrant states. Ross and James are both accused of forcing the man into the guesthouse, down a hallway and into a bedroom, resulting in the kidnapping charges. Both are also accused of assaulting him. Ross also faces an aggravated assault charge involving a Glock handgun. He's accused of using the gun to strike the man in the head and body, and also pointing the weapon at him. "The victim was then questioned under duress and forced to answer questions at gunpoint," one of the arrest warrants states. The court papers do not indicate what led to the attack, nor do they outline the relationship between Ross, the bodyguard and the man who was injured. When officers armed with the arrest warrants showed up at the mansion, once owned by boxer Evander Holyfield, someone inside refused to open the gate leading to the home, authorities said. BOOOM! "They refused to open the gate, so we opened the gate for them," Joyner said. Once officers got past the gate, someone inside opened the front door so they didn't have to break it down too, Joyner said. Ross and the bodyguard were then taken into custody without incident, Joyner said. Ross made an initial appearance before a magistrate judge Wednesday morning and the judge denied bail, Fayette County sheriff's spokesman J. Allen Stevens said. It was second time in the past two weeks Ross has been arrested in Fayette County. On June 10, Ross was booked into the county jail on a misdemeanor charge of marijuana possession. In that case, Ross and a passenger were pulled over because the windows of the Bentley in which they were riding violated tinting regulations, Stevens, the sheriff's spokesman, said at the time. The officer smelled marijuana and found some inside the car, Stevens said. A Florida Department of Corrections spokesman confirmed Wednesday — and Ross has previously said — that he worked as a correctional officer at a Miami prison in the mid-1990s.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Inge Re: Why does Laser ink not go dry? Dear Webby You imply that Laser printers don't mind if you don't use them regularly, and nothing happens if they dry out. How come? How does a Laser printer work? Inge Dear Inge Lasers use a dry powder. A drum is charged with door knob type static electricity, that is discharged wherever the laser beam hits it, as it passes under the lasers. Then the drum turns over the toner trays and where the charge has been discharged, it picks up toner. That used to be accomplished with magnetism and iron powder in the toner, but nowadays they usually just use more static. Then the drum turns very close to the paper, where it is stretched around a roller, and where it is again charged with a different type of static. That causes the toner powder to jump from the drum to the paper. Finally, the paper goes around a heated roller, that melts the toner powder into the fibres of the paper. Sounds confusing? Just remember that the Laser printer toner is a dry waxy powder that is shot at the paper with door knob static and then melted into the paper. Since it is already dry, it won't go bad. Have Fun! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ I was with a friend in a cafe' when a noisy car alarm interrupted our conversation. "What good are car alarms when no one pays any attention to them?" I wondered aloud. "Some are quite effective," my friend corrected me. "Last summer, my teenager spent a lot of time at the neighbors'. Whenever I wanted him home, I'd go out to the driveway and kick his car." ______________________________________________________ >From Connie: If I WISH I WAS A BEAR . . .

All walls were originally painted white, but now are a lovely shade of yellow/brown. We decided to stop smoking (yay us!), so now I have begun the arduous task of cleaning walls. I've tried many of the tips here. Great tips all, however, none quite up to the challenge. Last week, I spilled some Dr. Bronner's almond castile soap on my grill. The grease disappeared completely when I wiped it off! Today, I tackled the smallest room. I put the castile soap directly on a Dobie, scrubbed the wall, wiped it with a hot damp microfiber and voila! Came. Right. Off! I didn't even wear gloves, and the smell is fantastic! Next comes the fresh paint! Hope this helps someone. I love this site :) By Lina D [1] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ The guys were all at a deer camp. No one wanted to room with George, because he snored so badly. They decided it wasn't fair to make one of them stay with him the whole time, so they voted to take turns. The first guy roomed with George and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot. They asked, 'Man, what happened to you? He said, 'George snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night. ' The next night it was a different guy's turn. In the morning, same thing - hair all standing up, eyes all bloodshot. They said, 'Man, what happened to you? You look awful!' He said, 'Man, that George shakes the roof with his snoring. I watched him all night .' The third night was Pete's turn. Pete was a big burly ex-Navy man; a man's man. The next morning he came to breakfast bright eyed and bushy tailed. ' Good morning,' he said. They couldn't believe it! They said, 'Man, what happened?' He said, 'Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked George into bed, patted him on the butt, and kissed him good night. George sat up and watched me all night.' _____________________________________________________ After she woke up, a woman told her husband, "I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for our anniversary. What do you think it means?" "You'll know tonight." he said. That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his wife. Delighted, she opened it to find a book entitled "The Meaning of Dreams." He spent the night on the couch. ____________________________________________________
