Limbaugh Caught With Illegal Viagra

Caught with Viagra at airport, no prescription. He already got a slap on the wrist for drug offenses before, he ought to be thrown in jail. Why can't this fat SOB get his Viagra legally? The dumb ass doesn't understand that he was more likely to get this in the news by getting arrested for it, than having a valid prescription.

Apple Admits To Using Sweat Shop Labor

To manufacture iPods. OK, I am posting this not to make a statement about sweatshops, although I think everyone should boycott Apple, rather, to make a statement about the evils of technology. As much as I love to use technology to engage in my little hobby here, I really feel that the more advanced we get, the more decadent our society becomes.

Technology is responsible for allowing child molesters easy access for their next victims. Technology has made it so that last week, while in a parking lot waiting for my mom to purchase her golden lottery ticket, I looked at the car next to me and every member of the family-mom, dad, and child, were each talking to someone on their cell phones. Technology has made it so that we can't go to the toilet without immediate access to our music. It has made us a nation of spoiled brats with attention spans of ants, who need immediate gratification or heaven forbid, we have to wait until we get home to make a phone call. We don't go to the bank anymore...all of it is done online, and we pay our bills online. Gone are the days when we actually left the house to go to the phone company, talk to our neighbors while there, and interact with others. Our society has become individualistic and we are more isolated because of technology. A recent survey found that 25% of American adults said that they don't have one good friend that they can confide in. But I'm sure they have 50 people on their Yahoo mesenger list. Yes, I have a cell phone and a computer. But it is not a lifeline. Screw Apple, they can go bankrupt.

FOX News Takes A Dive

With a 22% decrease in viewers of their key demographic and 8% decrease overall. Hummm, wonder if it has anything to to with Tony Snow? You know, now that he is patting the back of his comrade George Bush, maybe people are starting to figure out FOX News is not so biased and fair afterall. Or maybe they figured out that they can't take FOX News seriously when one of their correspondants, who regularly lambasted Bush, is now yucking it up with him, telling everyone what a great job he is doing.

Congress Close To Signing Warrantless Surveillance Into Law

What is with Arlen Spector? Is he schizophrenic? He thumps his chest and makes pretend that he is appalled by the warrentless surveillance, then canoodles with Cheyney to turn this into a law? Allowing a warrantless surveillance program is supposed to uphold our civil liberties, as he put it? He says that laws were broken, so now just say it's legal and the law breakers go free to continue breaking the law? I want to vommit.

Spector Is Gutless

Drunk Bird Collides With Car

LAGUNA BEACH, Calif. - The driver was sober. The bird he hit may have been under the influence. A California brown pelican flew through the windshield of a motorist on the Pacific Coast Highway in Orange County Thursday, and wildlife officials said the bird was probably intoxicated by a chemical in the water.

Though toxicology tests take several weeks, the odd bird behavior was likely the result of poisoning from domoic acid, which has been found in the ocean in the area, said Lisa Birkle, assistant wildlife director at the Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center in Huntington Beach.
Birds can be poisoned through eating algae tainted by the acid.

The driver was not hurt. The pelican needed surgery for a broken foot, and also had a gash on its pouch.

"She's hanging in there," Birkle said.

The Wetlands and Wildlife Care Center has received 16 calls of strange bird behavior in the past week, and was holding three other birds found disoriented and wandering through yards and in streets.

Domoic acid poisoning was the most likely cause of a 1961 invasion of thousands of frantic seabirds in Northern California that inspired Alfred Hitchcock's film "The Birds."
Those birds flew into buildings and pecked several humans.

Pelicans have excellent eyesight and they are unlikely to have flown into a car without some kind of intoxication, Birkle said.

Seven Arrested in Terror Plot

GOP Circulating a WMD Lie

Santorum and others are running around saying that WMD's were found...but intelligence says weaponry found predates the first Gulf War, were not part of an organized program by Sadaam, and were not a threat to the US prior to the war. Everyone knows that Iraq had WMD long before the war started, but he justification to go to war was based on an alleged immediate threat, not due to a threat by a few weapons found from long ago that did not pose any danger.

Bush Administration Used Shady Brokers To Get Our Information

Into getting our phone and other records, in order to avoid warrents. This is despicable. They used shady online brokers to do the dirty work. When Bush is out of office, I will be able to breathe.

"These brokers, many of whom advertise aggressively on the Internet, have gotten into customer accounts online, tricked phone companies into revealing information and even acknowledged that their practices violate laws, according to documents gathered by congressional investigators and provided to The Associated Press".

ACLU Probes Amusement Park Hairstyle Ban

Six flags wants their employees to maintain a clean cut image. So what? They have the right to do that. Any company has the right to specify a dress code, which includes hair. They are not discriminating against race. Dreadlocks is not what they want. I know someone who worked at Six Flags in New Jersey, a guy with really long hair and they asked him to cut it. He didn't, he left. Deal with it or find a new job.

Taylor Hicks People Magazine's Hottest Bachelor?

Are you kidding? He is cute, ok, but the hottest? I liked him when I first saw him on Idol, but his shtick became nauseating. Give me George Clooney any day. I know, you are all sick of hearing how good looking he is, but really, can you get any hotter than this?

Liberals Boo Clinton

I hate people who stick to ideologies for the sake that they are liberal or conservative causes. So Clinton doesn't think we should bail out of Iraq...I agree, even though I oppose the war. We went there and destroyed their country, we have to fix it. It is no where near fixed yet. It is time however, to reduce troops and maintain a peacekeeping more raids, etc. Hillary got alot of flack for her stand on abortion also. They said she was pandering to the middle/right, taking the position she does. Does being a liberal or a conservative mean that you can't have ANY ideas that are more centrist? People don't work that way. Hillary is a mother in addition to a politician. It's possible that her views on abortion are partly shaped by her experience as a mother. What is fake about that? Anyone who is extreme left or right is a wacko in my book.

Flash Animation: Core Values Training

So the military is going to provide this type of training to soldiers. Are they saying that the incidents that have caused concern are due to lack of morals on the part of the soldiers involved? What about stress, fear, or lack of leadership? Or leaders who seem to condone such acts by not taking a firm stance on the matter? It is far more likely that those are the reasons that these incidents occur, not lack of morality on the part of soldiers. I would guess that those involved in such incidents probably believe that they are expected to do whatever it takes.

At the age of which one would join the military, you either have morality or you don't. One of these nifty trainings isn't going to change your core.

OK Governor Approves Execution Of Child Molesters

I don't know how I feel about this. Part of me wants to yell "bravo" and part of me despises the death sentence. Child molestation is rampant. What if we caught all of the perps, herded them in, and killed them. What would that accomplish? It isn't going to deter child molestation...these people have no control over their impulses. I don't know.

PA Schools Weigh Parental Fast Food Ban

They don't want parents to bring their kids fast food. While I agree that the school doesn't have to sell it and applaud that alot of PA schools have only non-sweetened drinks and healthy snacks in vending machines, if mamma wants to feed her kid a Big Mac, so be it. Just how much do we want the state to tell us what to do?

AP Poll: Most Support Troops, Oppose The War
