UPDATE: 12.2.2010: I’m not laughing anymore, sorry to say. I’m too busy swearing like my late father alternating with use of the always present barf bucket (and I’m only to page 37). Look for an article detailing all the goodies and the sales technique of this new issue from ‘My Little Pony World’ …DT
I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Not to worry, dear readers, I will post an article about this particular egomaniacal POS when I am able to stop laughing long enough to read it. I just thought you might enjoy the arrogant flounce down the catwalk of Obama’s debt commission and their ‘title’ that is so very wrong on so many levels.
Nope, the public school education system is not completely FUBAR; now is it moos? Another prime example of the brainwashing of the baby moos to be afraid of an invisible enemy instead of looking at the real perpetrators, the money-masters.
In another example of children being considered potential terrorists, a Massachusetts teacher sent home a note to each parent of her sixth-grade class banning all pencils and pens from school including the student’s person, backpack, and on the bus citing that they could be used in “weapon making”.
The letter read: students would no longer be allowed to bring writing implements to school. It said pencils would be provided for students in class and any students caught with pencils or pens after Nov. 15 would face disciplinary action for having materials “to build weapons.”
After receiving several calls from the media, the school district quickly retracted the ban, stating that the teacher sent the notice on their own authority without prior approval of the school board.
NORTH BROOKFIELD, Mass., Nov. 18 (UPI) — A Massachusetts school district superintendent said a memo banning sixth graders from carrying pencils was written without district approval.
North Brookfield School District interim Superintendent Gordon Noseworthy said Wendy Scott, one of two sixth-grade teachers at North Brookfield Elementary School, did not get approval from administrators before sending the memo to all sixth-grade parents, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reported Thursday.
What would one expect the President of the United States and Leader Of The Free World to be doing on the day of the biggest election in our lifetimes? Maybe something to do with the election, the economy, unemployment, inflation, world conflict, etc.
Nope, he’s doing a radio interview with the very famous, talented, and totally irrelevant Ryan Seacrest.
Smells like desperation, doesn’t it? This administration absolutely needs to hire Martha Stewart for scheduling and protocol. She might actually get this teenager to understand what is befitting a president and what is not. I, once again, am totally embarrassed by the guy that was installed in the White House in 2008. (more…)
Come on folks, laugh along with me because we are wayyyyyyyyyyyyy past the point of being frightened.
The unbelievable stupidity and ineptitude of the government goes unchecked when a 20 year old U.S. born citizen of Egyptian descent is secretly GPS tracked by the FBI, who then gets caught, and shows up in force to get their GPS unit back. I’m wondering which event came first, the tracking or the 9th Circuit Appeals judge stating it’s legal to trespass when the government is spying on it’s citizens. Well, maybe that’s not how the decision was actually stated, but the results are the same, yes?
A California student got a visit from the FBI this week after he found a secret GPS tracking device on his car, and a friend posted photos of it online. The post prompted wide speculation about whether the device was real, whether the young Arab-American was being targeted in a terrorism investigation and what the authorities would do.
It took just 48 hours to find out: The device was real, the student was being secretly tracked and the FBI wanted its expensive device back, the student told Wired.com in an interview Wednesday.
The answer came when half-a-dozen FBI agents and police officers appeared at Yasir Afifi’s apartment complex in Santa Clara, California, on Tuesday demanding he return the device.
Afifi, a 20-year-old U.S.-born citizen, cooperated willingly and said he’d done nothing to merit attention from authorities. Comments the agents made during their visit suggested he’d been under FBI surveillance for three to six months.
An FBI spokesman wouldn’t acknowledge that the device belonged to the agency or that agents appeared at Afifi’s house.
“I can’t really tell you much about it, because it’s still an ongoing investigation,” said spokesman Pete Lee, who works in the agency’s San Francisco headquarters.
Afifi, the son of an Islamic-American community leader who died a year ago in Egypt, is one of only a few people known to have found a government-tracking device on their vehicle.
His discovery comes in the wake of a recent ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals saying it’s legal for law enforcement to secretly place a tracking device on a suspect’s car without getting a warrant, even if the car is parked in a private driveway.
This award is going to Barbara Walters on The View today when she asked Michelle Obama whether or not she wears pantyhose?
Excuse me? Pardon me? WTF!!!! Who gives a flying supersecretsquirrel’s bushy little tail? WHO?
Don’t we have more important things to do Ladies? I do believe this is the reason that today’s The View was only the second time I have watched this pathetic show. Don’t know how to respond or talk about “strong women”? ….no wonder, if all we see on TV is this drivel.
