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

.
Tweet this, Mubarak…

Probably the biggest story of the week has been the part played by social networks  Twitter and Facebook to bring down the Egyptian government.  




Although, our marches in the 60’s were pretty impressive, had we had these technologies back then we may have ended the Vietnam War in a week.

On the subject of technology, for the computer geek who has everything…

Those clever Japanese have done it again.   Plug this humping dog USB port into your laptop and “until it pulls out, it does not stop.”   Also available in Beagle and Dalmatian.

No Chihuahua?   Bummer.

What’s the beef with Taco Bell?

Lawsuits filed this week claim that Taco Bell is shorting its customers in the amount of real beef it puts in its tacos, but nobody seems to be complaining about the taste.



I’m reminded of something a member of the Jefferson Airplane once said:  “I don’t care if my lettuce has DDT on it as long as it’s crisp.”

The tacos are 89 cents, for God’s sake.   Lower your fucking expectations.

Love the fetus, hate the mother…

In their continued attempt to eliminate all access to legal, safe abortion for women in this country Republicans, fresh off getting their misogynist asses handed to them over their attempt to redefine rape as “forcible” as opposed to just your garden variety, have targeted women’s health once again.  

Led by Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA), the ironically named “Protect Life Act” (HR 358)  would "allow hospitals to refuse to provide abortion care when necessary to save a woman’s life."  This changes the existing law which requires emergency room doctors to save every patient, regardless of status or ability to pay. 

In other words, if you’re poor and your status happens to be pregnant and in need of an abortion to save your life, lots of luck.  Not only would they not have to treat you, they don’t have to refer you elsewhere for help either.

Say it with me…  Joe Pitts, you’re a steaming pile of shit.

Ever thought to yourself, “Why is this crap called ‘The Learning Channel?’”   Here’s your eagerly awaited new line-up of shows…



As always, thanks for spending a little bit of the Sabbath injaynesworld.
