injaynesworld brings you the "Sunday Recap..."


Is it me or does anyone else feel just a little uneasy at the sight of  someone “packin’ heat” at the local Starbucks?   Apparently, there are people out there who are so paranoid that they have to carry a gun while ordering their soy chai tea.  In the 43 states where it’s legal to carry weapons openly in public places, pro-gun groups are encouraging their members to parade around with handguns snug in holsters strapped to their waists.  Hey, I had “Lone Ranger” fantasies, too, but eventually you grow up. 

Despite the fact that businesses have the right to ban guns from their premises, as Peet’s Coffee and California Pizza Kitchens have done, Starbucks has said they will continue to welcome their gun-totin’ patrons and not to worry because they have security measures in place for any "threatening situation" that might occur.

Well, hell… I feel better already.  When one of these “Dirty Harry” wannabes decides to get trigger happy after finding out there’s no more chocolate biscotti I know I can count on the pimple-faced teenager behind the counter to talk him down.

Come out, come out, wherever you are… 

Another “traditional values” Republican isn’t smiling today.   California State Senator Roy Ashburn, father of four and a fierce opponent of gay rights, was busted on a DUI early Wednesday morning after leaving the well-known gay nightclub, Faces, in midtown Sacramento with an unidentified man in his car.   Observed driving erratically, Ashburn was pulled over by CHP and failed a field sobriety test.

In the past, the good Senator has organized anti-gay marriage rallies as part of his “Traditional Family Values” campaign. 

Can you say hypocrite, boys and girls?  God, I miss Mr. Rogers…

###

On a positive note, marriage equality became the law in our nation’s capital this week.  Starting Wednesday the 3rd, gay couples in Washington D.C. could begin applying for marriage licenses. 

I say, hell yeah!   Gays should be allowed to marry, be miserable and get divorced like everyone else.   To show your support for marriage equality, grab the “White Knot” button in my right sidebar.

Vying for title of  “Rarely has so little gone so far…” the Gosselins were front and center in the news this past week. 

Kate Gosselin signed on to this season’s DWTS, which will pay her $200,000 plus bonuses as/if she advances in the competition.   Presumably, being able to run around after eight kids day after day has given her some awesome moves.   While Kate’s star appears to be rising, ex-hubby Jon is receiving more dubious offers.

Playgirl Magazine is said to have offered Jon Gosselin a mere $20,000 for a nude spread, citing his reputation for having a small penis.  Former girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, has described Gosselin’s manhood as “being hung like a nine-year-old boy.”  Ouch!   In a sporting gesture, Playgirl offered to sweeten the deal by paying Gosselin an additional $10,000 for every inch over four inches.  

So what do you think?  Should he take it?   He could always use the money for a down payment on a Hummer.

“Today is a big day in America,” said Senator Harry Reid.  “Only 36,000 people lost their jobs today, which is really good.”

Yeah, you might want to tone down that positive spin, Harry…  While it’s true that Friday’s unemployment numbers held steady at 9.7% when economists had been predicted a rise to 9.8% or a loss of 68,000 jobs, if you’re one of  those who got canned, you’re not really finding it such a “good day.”

###

On the other end of the economic realm…

Got an extra $14 million lying around?  If so you could be the proud owner of these digs:



Pretty sweet, huh?   Rush Limbaugh has put his 5th Avenue penthouse on the market.  It would seem that he was none-too-happy about a proposed tax on New Yorkers making over $500,000 a year.  Hey, I can understand.  Nobody likes to pay their taxes.

Did I mention that Limbaugh’s current contract, inked in 2008, garnered him some $400,000,000 for his pollution of the airwaves?  Yes.  That would be four hundred million.

And yet so many of those who find themselves jobless and, in some cases, homeless, think this guys speaks for them.  Go figure...

###

Either someone in the proofreading department at the New York Times has a wicked sensor of humor or they just became one of the aforementioned 36,000 statistic…  What’s wrong with this picture?

And finally…

Won’t all those bitches from high school who called me a slut be sorry now…
