Practice what you TALK! JACK!

"The time is to stop talking and get things done!"
- Jack Evans, at the Stead Park announcement (as seen on the NBC 4 morning news cast 5/24/08)


How about the 9th Street Corridor?

Name that stain!! The Hotel Edition...

These were found in one of the most expensive hotels in America, the Gaylord Opryland in Nashville, TN. Probably the worst hotel chain I have ever stayed in.

So I ask you my loyal NINjamonkey's, what is the stain?

Happy Birthday in Korean

Kim was Korean, straight from Korea. His english was limited, I'd find him some times downstairs with the Korean Moonie who ran the lobby shop. CHips, sodas, klondike bars, and my favorite Mike & Ike's. Just talking in Korean, both looking miserable and lonely, the shopkeeper always looking bored.........
Sharlleen was my direct super, Duke graduate, so we had North Carolina in common. She was younger than me but was not naive to the Bossman's ways. She tried to warn me as best she could:
"He doesn't understand technical terms, so when possible use technical sounding terms so as to confuse and silence him. You'll be set if you do."

The Bossman liked to be as spontaneaous as he thought he could, never plannning to leave at a certain time, meetings never planned, everything just as last minute as possible.

This one morning, a birthday morning, probably my second or third week there , he hatched a plan to help celebrate Sharlleen's birthday. This morning he called Kim and I to his office.
I think it would a good idea if we sing happy birthday to Sharlleen. In Korean!

After a few minutes of convincing KIm, using various tones of
"The song you sing on someone's birthday????!! on the day someone was born"
Questioning ourselves whether or not he understood what we were trying to say.........Kim taught us the song you sing to those on the anniversary of their birth. Then on the bosses lead we burst into Sharlleen's office, one over eager spontaneous guy, one confused Korean and one embarrassed new hire, singing a half assed version of Happy bIRTHDAY IN Korean..

some names have been changed to protect the unwilling participants!

Edited Madness

I posted a really ugly rant about out part time councilman (JACK EVANS if you didn't know works for a lobbyist), our ignorant neighbors, the idiot children and adults with guns and other stupid idiotic crap that infests our lovely neighborhood. Problem is, I was not in a proper state of when I awoke the next morning at 6 I immediately erased the post. My apologies to all those who thought they were going to read a post about jack evans other job as a whore's vulva.

probably should have said it differently

to the deli counter guy "no need to pack it in, i only need a little meat with my tossed salad."


To whom it may concern:

I am submitting payment for this parking fine, not because I believe I am guilty of a violation but because I do not currently have the time, money or resources to fight such a ridiculous fine. I received this parking violation in the multi level public parking lot in downtown Bethesda.

On the night in question, my wife and I along with some friends planned to catch a movie and dinner. After submitting two hours worth of coins into the meter, after dinner at approximately 7:15, we ventured off to the theatre to view a 90 + minute movie (which started at 7:30). After the movie we decided to enjoy a few cocktails at one of Bethesda's many bars and restaurants, but before we did this I thought we should stop by the car to deposit more coins into the meter so as to avoid getting a parking violation. To my surprise when I arrived back at the car at approximately 9:25 there was already a ticket. Needless to say the idea of spending more money in a town or county that treated its guest with a $35 parking violation was not a priority. That night I wasn't in the mood to enjoy and celebrate Bethesda.
And as a person living on a budget, this was not $35 well spent.

My question to you is how do you expect people to celebrate and enjoy Bethesda through visiting its many movie theatres, restaurant and bars if you only allow them a ridiculously limited amount of time in which to enjoy Bethesda's many social venues? Especially when it comes to movies, these days movies run in excess of 2 hours. How are movie goers supposed to enjoy a movie if every two hours they have to leave to deposit coins in a parking garage that is 2 blocks away.

Please know that from now on I will do whatever it takes to ensure that my money, my wife's money and my friend's money is never spent in Montgomery County and especially Bethesda. Because Bethesda, Montgomery County hates visitors and those that spend money there!

Yours in Violation,

The Lumberjack

We rarely if ever had meetings, when meetings happened they always divulged into tangents and anecdotes about subjects no one quite knew how to follow or understand. Rarely were meetings for everyone, but story time to help feed the teller's ego.

On this morning a meeting was called to address professional attire and tardiness. A few nameless colleagues (it was a small office so it wasnt hard to figure who) have
a) been regularly late to work and/or
b) not dressing professionally (read suit tie, or two steps up from business casual, or as we like to call it "bidness formal")

Minutes felt like hours as The Boss and my direct supervisor (live via teleconference) went on and on about the importance of dressing in professional attire and arriving on time. Knowing that this talking to was not directed at me I settled into a hazy dream world of "I DON'T CARE".

"No Jeans"

"No Sneakers"

"No Haltertops"

"When we say 9:00 AM, we don't mean 9:05 or 9:10"

Blah blah blah blah.............

Eventually the meeting was done and we all went onto do our respective tasks for the day......

The next day....

It was known around the office that The Boss liked to stay late and he liked the taste of alcohol, we weren't really sure if the staying late and the liking of the taste of alcohol were related but there was always alcohol in the office, be it in wine bottle form or mouth wash form (which is another story for another day). It was also easy to determine if the boss had stayed late the previous night because he always had bed head and usually was dressed in the same clothes or variation of the previous day's attire from the previous work day. So the next day after the "MEETING on professional attire" it was obvious that THE BOSS had stayed the night. Only on this occasion, accompanying his bedhead, he was dressed in a red and black flannel and a pair of jeans, that we later discovered he stored in filing cabinets,

Never again were we warned about attire.....

I almost don't want to say anything, but the coincidence is to fucking weird.

Image the luck. Driving to work and spotting another douchebag, what luck... I ask...what luck!
If you remember earlier in the week we saw propagandist Krauthammer driving and running over children. Or so we heard!!

Imagine my surprise when I saw conservative Robert Novak (not to be confused with Krauthammer's nëu-conversativism rock style!!). so weird 2 prominent propagandists in 2 days!!!
Propaganda is a good racket, as evident by Bobby's Corvette.

AN accident at the corner of 9th and Constitution kept Bob and I next to each other for a few seconds......So I documented....

To all residents of the DC environs, please for the sake of the children, keep a wide berth around Novak's busted up black corvette. It's condition was reminiscent of Dirk Diggler's Trans Am late in the movie, it had seen better days.

Don't say I didn't warn you!!

Where the hell have you been??......

...the blogsphere masses scream at me as I walk the streets of Mount Vernon Square (or as I like to call it, LOwer Shaw or as the "let's rewrite the past" crew calls it Convention Center Land).

well if you must know... I was let go from my place of employment a few weeks back, during this time of post and pre employment I spent my time drinking coffee and watching copius amounts of football games (that's soccer to you mouth breathers). SO yeah, I was let go from a job I extremely disliked (wasn't as though as I was upset when I found out on that thursday). SO anyway, before i was let go I was able to line up a couple of interviews,miracously I was hooked up with a company appropriate for my career choice. and a week after i was let go i accepted a position.

So now that I am gone from THE ASSOCIATION, I will attempt to unload some unbelivable but true stories....
Look forward to posts in the future with such titles as:
The Lumberjack
Happy Birthday In Korean
The New Hire is Fucking the Boss
The Death of Sushi or How Momma Killed The Parrott
The Hidden Reese's Peanut Butter Cup
Underwear!!!! The Filing Cabinet Horror
High Fives, THE INVENTION!!!
Methadone: The Accountant's Assistant!

Get off the Roads!!!!!! Douchebag Crippled Neocon Drives*

though you might not make it out, that is the douchebag neocon bastard Krauthammer. who I saw driving down L street this evening.

I was sure to manuever my car out of his way to ensure I wasn't sucked into a never ending hell based on lies, lies, lies, either that or a fender bender. A little further down the block I witnessed him run over a group of Palestinian and Iraqi children. Moments later I purposely ran over a hawk,.

*This might be offensive to those who like to wear their panties in a bunch!!!

Gotta Share: The Bar-Kays Soul Finger


About Last Night: The Hall Monitors, PBR and Jack Evans

Journeyed to the Black Cat to catch The Hall Monitors, I also caught the break ups and DAN MELCHIOR UND DAS MENACE. After several pints of PBR I noticed a slightly older dandy at the next bar stool, was I SURPRISED to find that the dandy was none other than the good Georgetown resident Jack Evans. after buying round after round Jack, in a moment of clarity, admitted to me that he is not broken up one bit about all the animosity from his Shaw Serfs......He confided in me that he employs one style of rule, DIVIDE and COnquEr. Made famous by the Brits during their world conquests. Many historians think our current problems in hot spots around the globe are due to the power vaccum created when the brits gave up their colonial rule in the early 20th century..... But anyway, is anyone really surprised? I am not surprised, so please divide and conquer away my friend, divide and conquer...**

Remember to vote!!!!

A vote for Jack Evans is a vote for death and murder, Georgetown style!!!

Ginger, of the Hall Monitors, goes super nova!!!!!!

**most of the above is untrue!!!

Surprise surprise surprise

Evans stays quiet and the neighborhood forgets!!!!


Remember to vote!
Listening to this
and this

as well as this

and of course this

oh yeah don't forget

Shaw residents go Apeshit, Evans could give a shit....

Ever since Jack Evans, ward 2 councilperson, attended the racist hate group ECCA's monthly meeting, the residents have gone apeshit (for good reason). Listserves and blogs (including THE NINJAMONKEY3000) have called Jack Evans out on his hate enabling.

Our blogging buddy over at Off 7th sent Jack Evans (he wasn't alone many other upset Shaw neighbors sent emails as well)an email asking what actions Jack Evans will take to fix the rift in the neighborhood.......

What Off 7th got back sounded more like a campaign speech than a cure all:
To: xxxxxx; shawneighborhood;
Cc: xxxxxx
Subject: [ShawNeighborhood] RE: So Jack...

Dear Off7th Guy- I have been in the pre-legislative meeting and legislative
meeting since 8:30 this morning which lasted until almost 6pm. I read
your email and emails of other residents regarding the ECCA meeting last
night. As the Ward 2 Councilmember, I have attended each
citizen/civic/ neighborhood and other associations in my Ward at least
one time a year, every year. This month I was the guest speaker at ECCA.
I am also speaking at the following meetings in the month of February:

Kingman Place NW Residents meeting, Dumbarton Condo Association meeting,
James Senior Building meeting, Mt. Vernon Neighborhood Association
Awards Banquet, Blagden Alley Neighborhood Association meeting, and the
Sheridan Kalorama Neighborhood Council, just to name a few.

I saw on an earlier blog someone invited me to attend an upcoming CCCA
meeting and I'd be happy to do so.

As the Councilmember for all residents, I am continuing to work on the
issues in your neighborhood and others in ward 2. In particular, I am
working closely with MPD and other organizations to address the increase
in violence in the Shaw neighborhood. We are also working to increase
economic opportunities. Just today, under my leadership, the Council
voted its final approval for the Convention Center Hotel to be
constructed at Massachusetts Avenue and 9th Streets, NW. We have also
continued discussions with Rhodeside in anticipation of breaking ground
at the O Street Market. Finally, at today's legislative meeting we
passed emergency legislation, the "Home Again Estates at Mt. Vernon
Disposition Emergency Approval Resolution of 2008" to ensure the block
of vacant properties needed to complete the redevelopment of the 1200
block of 4th Street in the Mt. Vernon Square neighborhood is addressed.

All of this follows on the announcement earlier this week that Shaw Jr.
High School will be replaced with a brand new Jr. High school and
community center...a great victory for our neighborhood. Additionally,
we look forward to the construction of the Watha T. Daniels
library...another important accomplishment for the Shaw/Mt. Vernon
Square neighborhoods. Both of these achievements are a step in the right
direction to ensuring our children get a quality education.

I think it is important that we all remain focus on addressing the many
outstanding issues throughout Ward 2.


My favorite is the last line, Jack Evans it is important that we all remain focused on addressing the many outstanding issues of ward 2. But to openly and publicly stroke the biggest divider in ward 2 and shaw in particular is to thumb your nose at the majority of Shaw's residents.

I propose that we, the residents of Ward 2 and Shaw, make sure we kick Jack out of his part time job as councilman and vote for someone who will oppose hate in all its forms and promote inclusion and openness.

Evans Attends Racist Hate Group's Monthly Meeting In Shaw

It appears Evans is shoring up his hate group vote quota by attending yesterday's ECCA.

The ECCA, for those not in the know, is the racist community association whose board was hijacked by the notorious racist, homophobic, rapist and pro-fascist Leroy Thorpe. This is the the same Leroy Thorpe who, through dirty political dealings, was able to hijack our ANC as an unelected parlimentarian and turn our ANC into an inefficient and ineffective local government body......

The ECCA, a community association, lately has taken to barring local residents and community leaders (read ANC commisioners), who do not bow in undulation when in the presence of the second coming of the prophet Mr. Thorpe.

Is this the behavior we want in an elected leader of ward 2?

Again , Jack Evans could give a crap about Shaw!!

A reason not to spend your money in Virginia!

Bill Targets WOrkers Who SPeak No English

A Republican state senator from Fairfax County has introduced a proposal that would allow a boss to fire employees who don't speak English in the workplace, which would make them ineligible for unemployment benefits.

I plead with my readers to do the following;
a) not spend money in Virginia,
b) erase Virginia from your memory
3) mail detritus, fecal matter, and any dead rodents to:
Sen. Ken Cuccinelli II
Senate of Virginia
P.O. Box 396
Richmond, VA 23218
10560 Main Street
Suite LL-17
Fairfax, VA 22030

Thank you for your support!

The Truth about Ron Paul finally makes the light of day! Ron Paul for PRez, yeah right!

Some terribly wonderful quotes taken from Ron Paul's The Ron Paul Report! See for yourself why everyone but the Ron Paulites think he's a quack!

Racist, Conspiracy Theorist, ANti Semite, Homophobe (sounds like a caustic neighborhood bully we all know)

THe new Republic article can be found here! ANgry White Man!

“[O]ur country is being destroyed by a group of actual and potential terrorists—and they can be identified by the color of their skin.”

“I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in that city [Washington, D.C.] are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.”

“We are constantly told that it is evil to be afraid of black men, but it is hardly irrational.”

“The riots, burning, looting, and murders are only a continuation of 30 years of racial politics.”

“The criminals who terrorize our cities—in riots and on every non-riot day—are not exclusively young black males, but they largely are. As children, they are trained to hate whites, to believe that white oppression is responsible for all black ills, to “fight the power,” and to steal and loot as much money from the white enemy as possible. Anything is justified against ‘The Man.’ And ‘The Woman.’’”

“My friend waved to the tiny [African-American] child, who scowled, stuck out her tongue, and said (somewhat tautologically): “I hate you, white honkey.” And the parents were indulgent. Is any white child taught to hate in this way?” [As a matter of fact, Paul has appeared on a radio program called “The Political Cesspool,” which has featured the neo-Nazi twin pop stars Prussian Blue. –ed.]

“But this is normal, and in fact benign, compared to much of the anti-white ideology in the thoroughly racist black community. The black leadership indoctrinates its followers with phony history and phony theory to bolster its claims of victimology.”

“Korean-Americans, hated by blacks, never riot, and in fact are some of the most productive people in America (the reason for black hatred).”

“The cause of the riots is plain: barbarism. If the barbarians cannot loot sufficiently through legal channels (i.e., the riots being the welfare-state minus the middleman), they resort to illegal ones, to terrorism.”

“We must not kowtow to the street hoodlums and their sanctimonious leaders.”

“Regardless of what the media tell us, most white Americans are not going to believe that they are at fault for what blacks have done to cities across America. The professional blacks may have cowed the elites, but good sense survives at the grass roots.”

“Indeed, it is shocking to consider the uniformity of opinion among blacks in this country.”

“Blacks have ‘civil rights,’ preferences, set-asides for government contracts, gerrymandered voting districts, black bureaucracies, black mayors, black curricula in schools, black beauty contests, black TV shows, black TV anchors, black scholarships and colleges, hate crime laws, and public humiliation for anyone who dares question the black agenda.”

“Black males age 13 that have been raised on the streets and who have joined criminal gangs are as big, strong, tough, scary, and culpable as any adult and should be treated as such.”

“We now know that we are under assault from thugs and revolutionaries who hate Euro-American civilization and everything it stands for: private property, material success for those who earn it, and Christian morality.”

“In San Francisco and perhaps other cities, says expert Burt Blumert, the rioting was led by red-flag carrying members of the Revolutionary Communist Party and the Workers World Party, both Trotskyite-Maoist.”

“Many people tried to buy guns to protect themselves. But, whoops, California has a 14-day waiting period. And then, just to make sure honest Californians could not get ammunition for the firearms they already owned (poor ragefilled youth might be shot), Mayor Tom Bradley ordered all gun and ammo shops closed, a great help to criminals who had stocked up earlier, or who could simply break in and loot.”

“Several days after the violence ended, we learned that there would have been blacks on the King jury—if the NAACP hadn’t engaged in jury tampering by telling potential black jurors that it was their racial duty to convict the cops. The blacks admitted this to defense lawyers, and were rightly excluded from jury. This is a serious crime, but the NAACP will not be prosecuted.”

“Two years ago, in a series of predictions for the 1990s, I said that race riots would erupt in our large cities. I’m now predicting this will be the major problem of the 1990s.”

“Last month I reported on massive, illegal spying by the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith against its perceived opponents, as revealed in California. The ADL keeps track of people and groups from left to right, and purchases illegally obtained information on Americans from its agents in police departments in order to prepare and maintain hundreds of thousands of dossiers.”

“The [Los Angeles] Times also brought to light the ADL’s work against ‘cults,’ especially interesting given the BATF [Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms]-ADL connection.”

“It was such a seminar [i.e. a cult awareness training seminar], arranged by the ADL, that targeted the Branch Davidians in the first place.”

“The intensity with which Israel lobbies in the U.S. Congress is surpassed only by its media campaigns to drown all criticism of Israel. Prominent U.S. Editors and media owners don’t even pretend to objectivity on the issue. They all follow the advice of Norman Podhoretz, editor of the influential neo-conservative magazine Commentary….”

“If this walking bomb had gone off, it would have demolished the House Chamber and most of the congressmen in it. Yet this attempted terrorist attack was buried by the media. Why? Because the perpetrator was an undoubtedly mad Israeli, furious over alleged slights to his country… [T]he Israeli lobby deep-sixed the story, and no one outside of Congress ever head about it.”
