injaynesworld it's the "Sunday Recap..."

.
Sarah Palin and Kate Gosselin unite for a cause.  Their own…

No, you’re not experiencing a nightmare the likes of which usually only follow hours of binge-drinking while shooting heroin and smoking crack.  If only…  This one is all too true.  The two biggest media divas around are merging their enormous egos for an episode of “Kate Plus Eight” where the Gosselin brood will travel to Alaska for a camping trip with “The Biggest Loser.”  No, wait.  I’m getting my reality shows confused.  An honest mistake.

Kate and the kids will visit with the ex-mayor, ex-governor, ex-candidate, for a thrill-a-minute romp in the woods.   Sarah is said to be excited and looking forward to teaching Kate how to avoid bears.

Presumably, that will include a fun-filled ride in a helicopter with an AK-47.

July is “National Ice Cream Month.”   Who knew…?

In 1984, then President Reagan declared July to be the month that we recognize the popularity of ice cream in the U.S. with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.”  I wonder if standing in unemployment lines is what he had in mind. 

It’s kind of ironic when you think that Reagan’s “Trickle Down” economics and deregulation policies have left American families so awash in corporate urine that many are barely able to feed their kids, much less buy extras like ice cream. 

Unless, of course, "corporate urine" is one of the new flavors being introduced by Baskin-Robbins to celebrate their 65th Anniversary this month.  And by the way, Baskin-Robbins is dumping French Vanilla from its menu, something else I'm sure Faux News will find a way to blame the NAACP for.

Chinese Cock Soccer…

Now there’s a phrase I never thought I’d write.   Trainer Zhang Lijun came up with the idea in 2007 when she noticed her young cocks enjoyed playing with balls.  And really, what young cock doesn’t?   She's now organizing mini-tournaments on city streets.  A team is made up of two roosters who use their feet and wings to handle the ball. 

No word as to whether size matters…

America loses another courageous soldier to ignorance.

Lieutenant Dan Choi lost his battle with the Pentagon when his discharge from the Army under the “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” policy was finalized this week. Choi, an Arabic linguist, Iraq Veteran, West Point Graduate, and infantry officer, has been an outspoken opponent of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.

According to the Service Members Legal Defense Network, Choi is among 59 gay Arabic linguists, along with 9 gay Farsi linguists, who have faced a discharge from the U.S. military from 2004 through 2009 under the DADT Policy.

Does that make any sense to you?  We’re fighting two wars in Arab-speaking nations and these are the people we’re kicking out.  

What endangers our troops more, the inability to speak and understand the language of our enemy or some bullshit argument about games of peek-a-boo in the showers if gays are allowed to serve?

Please tell your representatives to repeal DADT now.   American lives are on the line.

Who says the American entrepreneurial spirit isn’t alive and well?

This week’s “You Can’t Make This Shit Up” award goes to Travis Kevie, a 29-year-old homeless man who broke into an out-of-business bar and set up his own shop.  This budding “Donald Trump” started with a six-pack of beer he bought from a nearby liquor store, then used the money he received to buy more, serving about 30 customers a day. 

He was so successful that a newspaper did a story about the bar reopening leading, not surprisingly, to his inevitable downfall when the Placer County Sheriff’s office recognize his face on the front page.

Still, you gotta admire the guy.
