It’s things like this that make feel happy I’m old and will be dead relatively soon…
Because it’s not enough for the Republicans to block every attempt to help regular folks out in these economically trying times, now they want to play fast and loose with our national security. Since first proposed in 1982 by President Reagan and finally signed in 1991, every single Congress has voted to ratify the START treaty between the U.S. and Russia that allows us to verify each others nuclear weapons stockpile.
Give it up for the GOP for once again earning the prestigious “Steaming Pile of Shit Award.”
Meanwhile, the outrage over TSA screenings continued here…
While terrorists enjoyed screenings of their own.
Did you travel by air this week? Grope or Scan?
Do you know this man…?
According to a Facebook page, “Run Johnny Run,” started by his fans: “This man is a neighborly, non-violent, hard-working, industrious American. Our government needs to stop wasting time, money and resources trying to incarcerate a man who was a productive member of society.”
This isn’t “Run, Johnny, Run’s” first run-in with “Johnny Law.” They go back to the late 1980s when Boone spent more than a decade as a guest of the feds for leading a group of pot growers in nine states in growing 182 tons of the happy weed. If caught now, Boone faces life in prison – on the taxpayers’ dime.
Meanwhile, this week Willie Nelson got busted for pot possession yet again, but damn he looks happy.
And now a salute to American entrepreneurship of the legal kind…
According to creators Amanda and Matthew Fitch, who pop up the energy-boosting treat in their New Hampshire home kitchen, Bio-Fuel kettle-style popcorn has the same amount of caffeine as a strong cup of coffee -- two cups if you buy the extra-strength -- but no caffeine taste.
Apparently, the sweet and salty snack with the buzz bonus is a big hit, with some people saying it’s as addicting as cocaine. Now there’s a sales pitch.
North and South Korea are all up in each other’s faces again and you knew Sarah Palin would have an opinion.
While being interviewed by Glenn Beck about her plans to run for president in 2012, Palin was asked how she would handle the current North/South Korea conflict. “Obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies," she spouted with confidence before being corrected by Beck, "Uh, South Korea."
Okay, first of all I guess we’ve got to give her credit for even knowing that there are two Koreas and sure, anyone can make a slip of the tongue – although with Palin's tenuous grasp of the English language, one is often hard-pressed to discern the slip from the non-slip.
What should frighten anyone with even a scrap of awareness of the very dangerous world we live in, is that Palin was presenting herself as an expert on Korean foreign policy, something she clearly knows nothing about, and people were listening to her opinion as if it actually mattered.
Now that foreign entities can easily and secretly funnel money into campaign coffers to influence U.S. elections, you can betcha who America’s enemies will be supporting in 2012.
Finally, this little gem…
A New York subway flasher picks the wrong woman with whom to share his business…
After noticing someone pressing up against her on an uncrowded subway car, this woman looked down to discover that a man had his penis hanging out of his pants, and then the fun really began.
Maybe he was hoping for a patdown.
Your turn to chime in…
