Meet the real Batman

Pretty creepy. At least he eats fruit. 
If you wonder why he is batman instead of batwoman
look carefully at the picture.
Imagine if vampire bats grew to this size
 or even mosquitos.
She is just about full of blood.

Ricardo Ortiz Executed

This is the way all gang members should end up.  DEAD.
EL PASO -- Ricardo Ortiz became the first man convicted in an El Paso court to be executed by the state of Texas in 22 years on Thursday.

He was sentenced to death in the 1997 murder of Gerardo Garcia, a fellow inmate at the El Paso County Jail.

PhotobucketThe Associated Press reported that after receiving a lethal injection, Ortiz was pronounced dead at 5:18 p.m. MST in Huntsville.

The AP reported that Ortiz "expressed love for his family and thanked them for their support in the moment before he was executed."

"Stay strong," he said, although he had no personal witnesses in the death chamber. "I'm at peace. I love you and my kids. See you."

Ortiz, 46, did not request a special last meal, prison officials said.

He was convicted of injecting Garcia with a triple dose of heroin to keep him from testifying in a series of bank robberies, his 1999 trial revealed. Ortiz, a Texas Syndicate prison gang member, was being held at the jail on a parole violation and had offered authorities information on the robberies.

Garcia had been arrested on an unrelated charge.

Testimony also stated that Ortiz had heroin smuggled into the jail and had threatened to kill Garcia.

A relative of Ortiz who contacted the El Paso Times on Thursday but declined to be identified said the situation was "kind of hard," as her voice broke with emotion and the short call ended.

Other family members of Ortiz and Garcia could not be reached for comment. Family members of Garcia were also not on the list to attend the execution. SOURCE
It is amusing to me that most death-row murderers make the comment "Stay strong" shortly before assuming room temperature.

Virgil Martinez Executed

HUNTSVILLE — With his last gasps of breath Wednesday, Virgil Martinez told his family and the families of those he was convicted of killing that he was not responsible for the deaths of four people at a trailer home outside Alvin in October 1996.

PhotobucketIt was one of those found shot to death outside the trailer, 18-year-old John Gomez, who actually killed Veronica Fuentes, 27, and her children, 5-year-old Joshua and 3-year-old Casandra, Martinez claimed.

“I put the gun under my shirt and said ‘Hi’ to Josh and Casandra,” Martinez said while strapped to a gurney and facing his family and the victims’ families through a Plexiglas window. “John Gomez was there, he told Veronica that ‘He doesn’t love you.’ I didn’t care …”

While he described why he was at his victims’ home that night, Martinez snored a couple of times, then went silent.

At 6:50 p.m., about 10 minutes after the lethal chemicals entered his body, a doctor declared Martinez, 41, dead at the Huntsville Unit’s Death House.

A Brazoria County jury convicted Martinez of capital murder and sentenced him to death in 1998.

Jerry Fuentes, Veronica Fuentes’ former husband and Joshua and Casandra’s father, said Martinez’s last words were a slap in the face to Gomez’s family.

“He’s a liar,” Jerry Fuentes said.

Martinez wore black, thick-rimmed glasses and had a sheet pulled up to his chest. His hair was cut short, with a few silver streaks.

At the moment he was told to make his last statement, Martinez told several family members, “I love y’all.” He then began saying Gomez was the one who killed Fuentes and the two children.

“John Gomez killed your kids and sister,” Martinez said. “I know y’all love John Gomez, but he was a violent man. I wish I would have shot him in the leg, then he would be here. Those investigators were just trying to convict somebody.”

Jerry Fuentes called Martinez’s claims disrespectful. SOURCE

I love fish aquariums. I have three small ones. I would gladly work in an office that had aquariums like the one pictured to the right.

I do not think that toilet fish tanks would be something I would want to see or use.

Tribs

I will have no one telling me that the great uniter is dropping
bombs on peaceful tribs in Pakistan. Believe me,
the great uniter has so much more to give than that.

Did these tribesmen mean "Tribes" or "Cribs" because tribes
has something to do with Indians, and there are Indians in Pakistan.
I guess that last "e" in tribes was too much to squeeze
in on their wonderfully rendered, if not misspelled banner.

If they would have just done the jobs themselves by getting
rid of Obama Bin Laden there would be no need for
predator drones filling the sky like vengeful eagles god-smacking
terrorist swine with lofty precision that could only have been

Personally, I know I would hate to be bombed with a PGM while
chillin in my crib reading my favorite blogs with a cup of coffee.
I guess that is why Obama Bin Laden sleeps in caves from now on.

Recent Executions

Frank Moore 
Frank Moore insisted until the very end that he fatally shot two men 15 years ago in self-defense.

"Self-defense is not capital murder," the 47-year-old said from the death chamber gurney, the Associated Press reported.

At 6:21 p.m. Wednesday, Moore became the second prisoner executed this year in Texas.

Moore was convicted of fatally shooting Samuel Boyd, 23, and Patrick Clark, 15, outside a bar following an altercation. He claimed the men tried to run him down in their car. SOURCE

Darwin Demond Brown
McALESTER, Okla. —  A man convicted of beating a convenience store clerk to death with a baseball bat nearly 14 years ago has been put to death.

Darwin Demond Brown was pronounced dead at 6:11 p.m. Thursday after receiving a lethal injection at Oklahoma State Penitentiary.

The 32-year-old Brown and three other men were convicted of killing Richard Yost during the February 1995 robbery of a QuikTrip store in Tulsa. Yost's bound and battered body was discovered by a customer in the store's walk-in refrigerator in a pool of blood, milk and beer.

The state Pardon and Parole Board denied clemency for Brown on Jan. 7, and Brown's attorney, James Hankins, said his client had exhausted all of his appeals. SOURCE

Reginald Perkins
A man convicted of strangling his 64-year-old stepmother has been executed in Texas, authorities say.

Reginald Perkins was pronounced dead on Thursday, six minutes after the lethal drugs began flowing, according to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Perkins, 53, was convicted for murdering Gertie Perkins in December 2000.
Her body was found in the trunk of her vehicle in a parking garage.

An autopsy revealed that her face and mouth were covered in bruises and that she had been strangled with an object like a telephone cord, according to a statement by Texas Attorney-General Greg Abbott.

On the day his stepmother disappeared, Perkins had pawned her ring for $US150 ($A228).

He also got two fraudulent cheques cashed for a total of $US1,100 ($A1,600) from the Perkins' trucking business account.  SOURCE

James Harvey Callahan Executed.

James Harvey Callahan you are no more.
ATMORE, Ala. (AP) -- James Harvey Callahan has been executed for the 1982 kidnapping, rape and murder of a Jacksonville woman.

The 62-year-old Callahan died at 6:24 p.m. Thursday by lethal injection at Holman Prison for the murder of Rebecca Suzanne Howell, a 26-year-old Jacksonville State University student.

Callahan had been on death row for nearly 26 years.

He was the first of five inmates set for execution in the first five months of this year. Alabama had no executions in 2008. Source.

Good riddance dirtbag. You lived 26 years longer than you deserved.

Curtis Moore Executed

I doubt Curtis Moore will be missed after his deeds.
The Crime
Moore was condemned for the fatal shootings of Roderick Moore, 24, who was not related to him, and LaTanya Boone, 21, both of Fort Worth. The two were found shot to death in a ditch across from W.M. Green Elementary School in southeast Fort Worth in November 1995.

That same night, firefighters summoned to put out a car fire found Hoyle, then 21, of Fort Worth, and Henry Truevillian Jr., 20, of Forest Hill, shot and burned.

Truevillian, robbed of $5, was dead. Hoyle, robbed of $150, survived and helped lead police to the arrest of Moore and his nephew, Anthony Moore, then 17.

The three men were abducted after agreeing to meet Curtis Moore and his nephew at a stable where Roderick Moore boarded and trained horses. Boone was abducted from the apartment she shared with Roderick Moore, her boyfriend.

Witnesses at Curtis Moore’s trial testified that the shootings culminated a drug rip-off, that he doused Hoyle and Truevillian with gasoline and ignited them as they were bound and in the car trunk.

Hoyle gave information that led authorities to Moore’s nephew, who was known as "Kojak." Hoyle also told authorities he didn’t know the name of Kojak’s partner but that he drove a pink truck.

Curtis Moore had such a vehicle, and he and his nephew were arrested about two weeks later. Source.

Justice was Served.

What girls can do

While the C-5 was turning over its engines, a female crewman gave the G.I.s on board the usual information regarding seat belts, emergency exits, etc.

Finally, she said, Now sit back and enjoy your trip while your captain, Judith Campbell, and crew take you safely to Afghanistan.

An old MSgt. sitting in the eighth row thought to himself, Did I hear her right? Is the captain a woman?

When the attendant came by he said Did I understand you right? Is the captain a woman?

Yes, said the attendant, In fact, this entire crew is female.

My God, he said, I wish I had two double scotch and sodas. I don't know what to think with only women up there in the cockpit.

That's another thing, Sergeant, said the crew member, We No Longer Call It The Cockpit, It's The Box Office.

While talking


I was indicating to my Wife that I felt how B. Hussein Obama was going to be the end of the world as I knew it. I am very, very shallow. She calmly stated that our sun could just let loose (like a fart) with a solar flare (because we are coming to a solar maximum) that could act as an EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) and rid the world of all the pesky electronics, destroying the power grids here on earth and put an end to my dirty little affair with blogging and technology. She said we would have to dig a pit with lime covered walls and put a shack over it to act as an outhouse. My Wife is very practical in the face of disaster. What bigger disaster than if the crapper goes down? I would need to stock up on red and white cobbs. She also mentioned that at some time in the 1800s there was a solar flare that ruined some telegraph wires as an example of what could be the result.

Talk about putting things into perspective.

It might be like going back to the 1800s for a while. I would also have to learn to deal with Florida heat in August.


Then I discovered this:

ScienceDaily (Jan. 9, 2009) — Fasten your seat belts -- we're faster, heavier, and more likely to collide than we thought. Astronomers making high-precision measurements of the Milky Way say our home Galaxy is rotating about 100,000 miles per hour faster than previously understood.

That increase in speed, said Mark Reid, of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, increases the Milky Way's mass by 50 percent, bringing it even with the Andromeda Galaxy. "No longer will we think of the Milky Way as the little sister of the Andromeda Galaxy in our Local Group family."

The larger mass, in turn, means a greater gravitational pull that increases the likelihood of collisions with the Andromeda galaxy or smaller nearby galaxies.


This means B. Hussein Obama on the big scale is insignificant. While he could make your life here on earth a living hell, it is a relatively small thing when considering what could happen, happens. He is so insignificant that B.Hussein Obama could be put into a gnats navel and you would still have room for the Moon.

So in all actuality I have no worries except living the next day.





Nuff said.
