Meanwhile, unnoticed by the swells in the tanning-bed media, the sicko boycott of Israeli products has arrived. Its first reported target around here this past weekend was the couscous at Trader Joe's.The parking is so jammed up and, as good as it is at Trader Joe's, I don't drink much
Liberals want to make the financial sector so "safe" that I could hand my paycheck to my 10-year-old son, let him invest it in Nintendo games and baseball cards, and still be guaranteed a profit....
A sucker is born every minute. You see the suckers every time you walk into a convenience store and have to wait in line behind some fool who requires five minutes to complete his lottery-ticket purchase: "OK, give seven of the Pick Three and five Powerballs . . . yeah, right, now give me six each of Lucky Lady, Pot O' Gold . . ."
and it's a phone that can't even be lost!
You can look up its location on Google Maps and even make it beep to find it under the sofa.

Store Clerk Murdered; Customers Keep Shopping
Surveillance footage from a convenience store in Gary, Indiana show this man in a red shirt shooting and killing the clerk.
A 26-year-old convenience store clerk was shot and killed in broad daylight in Gary, Ind., and police say witnesses stood by and did nothing.
Actually, they did less than nothing. Several, while deeply concerned, were unwilling to meddle, and kept on shopping...
The View trashbroads trash the civilized Palins of Alaska.
Whoopi Goldberg is still stupid.
Letterman takes a metro-step toward manhood and begins to apologize. (Video here.) I recall Imus traveling to New Jersey to apologize to the nappy-headeds. Time for Bitterman man up and travel to Alaska and speak with Mr Palin. Just a thought.
Uncharacteristically for perfectly normal Americans, usually too busy with real life to hit the streets, protests are planned outside CBS.
Apparently Littleman annoyed the wrong lesbo...
And to answer your question, nah, I don't watch Letterman. Never have, really. Maybe if Dolly Parton were on. Did see him in passing while JMax watched him in Mexico a few months ago.
Okay, all done now.
The Six Flags Bailout [Dan Collins]
Amusement park operator Six Flags declared bankruptcy yesterday but says that it will keep its parks open, at least for now. According to the Washington Post, the company is carrying $2.4 billion in debt. Despite the fact that Six Flags reported 25 million visitors and posted record revenues in 2008, the debt is simply unsustainable, the Associated Press reports.
The Obama administration indicated that it will purchase a controlling interest in Six Flags, with 60% of the corporate stock going to the Teamsters. TARP directors will help the company determine rides that the American public will really wish to experience, such as:
The Big O! a merry-go-round celebration of Hope and Change, powered by carbon-free unicorn farts
The New GM, a roller-coaster hitting the incredible speed of 25 mph
Shovel-Ready, a Big Dig-inspired ride continuously under construction
Red America, the Deliverance-themed water adventure (Squeal Like A Pig!)
And the thrilling Mr. Ayers’ Wild Ride.
A special offering for those 65 and over, or suffering ill health, will be the ride called Logan’s Run. The admissions of up to 6 members of a party including a person utilizing this ride will be refunded with a voucher at the exit.
Carnival foods such as fried dough will be replaced with healthy offerings, such as chickpeas and arugula. Dangerous foods “on a stick” will no longer be offered. Park admission will remain a flat fee, but each individual ride will require a surcharge, with families of more than four paying an additional amount. People of authorized color will be permitted to utilize fast access lines.
Hakim Nelson and Jason Stenson married on May 26 with nary a raised eyebrow among the oblivious city bureaucrats who not only OK'd the marriage license, but conducted the ceremony, despite gay marriage being illegal in the state.
The plucky couple filled out their marriage application online at the Apple Store on 14th Street in May. A few days later, they went to the City Clerk's Office on Worth Street to complete the form and get their marriage license.
Nelson -- who goes by the name "Kimah" and hopes to one day have surgery to become a "full female" -- wore an orange dress and white leggings, his straight, brown hair falling to his shoulders.
The gullible clerk didn't seem to notice that both Nelson, 18, and Stenson, 21, have male first names.
That Darn Cat!
In this Sunday, June 14, 2009 police mug photo released by the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office, Tyler Weinman, 18, is shown after his arrest in connection with a series of cat killings and mutilations in his Miami-area community.
Horrified owners have been finding their cats killed and mutilated for the past month in Palmetto Bay and another nearby community.
Weinman is charged with 19 counts of animal cruelty, 19 counts of improperly disposing of an animal body and four counts of burglary. (AP Photo/Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office)>
Jarett says this installment of his Undercover Interview is with a Marine sniper who not only went to combat, but offered up his services a second time in Iraq after he had left the Marines because he “wanted to fucking kill people.” Jarrett says: I don’t judge, I just ask the questions…..and the answers, Jarrett judges, are insane.
"Just compare the bitter, sour, twilight-of-his-increasingly-pathetic-career Letterman to this intelligent, poised, cheerful, vibrant woman with her horizons still open to everything. It’s kind of a no contest
But bravo, Governor Palin. The Lettermans of the world are nothing to be afraid of. In fact, they’re less than nothing. Pop Culture is wholly owned by bullies. The American people understand this and are not impressed by them, but they’re also not impressed with politicians who don’t fight back, either.
Sarah Palin and Carrie Prejean. I like our chances."
Chastity Bono to undergo sex change transitioning.
You know, I'm trying to not say STHU, or say pull your head outta your ass, so I'll just say do your due diligence -- which would require at least a step away from the tanning bed media, a looksee beyond Brian Williams or Newsweek -- before you start spouting off to me about hate.Thanks, Becka.
He thrust out his arm in the direction of the staffer, displaying the number the Nazis tattooed on his arm at Auschwitz just a few inches from her face. Without making eye-contact and barely breaking stride, Pop kept walking. Understandably, the staffer barely blinked. She didn't make a move to stop him.
Pop kept walking right into the elevator that had just filled with the visitors that had been waiting in that long line. And even though the elevator was already quite crowded, he walked right in. Jake and I had to run past the guard to catch up. "Pop, Pop," I said, feeling a little embarrassed, hoping to talk him into at least waiting for the next elevator.
The staffer inside the elevator must have heard me, because he smiled, held the door and said with smile, "We have room for Pop. You guys too. C'mon in."
And up we went. I have been to the Holocaust Museum many times, but none as memorable as that visit.
2 missing, 41 hurt in NC Slim Jim plant collapse
GARNER, N.C. – A blast at a Slim Jim meat products plant Tuesday blew workers off their feet, ripped the building's roof off its supports and critically burned four people.
Any ‘jokes’ about raping my 14-year-old are despicable.
Alaskans know it and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too.”

Asked if he had spoken to the President, Wright said: "Them Jews aren't going to let him talk to me. I told my baby daughter, that he'll talk to me in five years when he's a lame duck, or in eight years when he's out of office. ...
"Them Jews will not let him to talk to somebody who calls a spade what it is. ... I said from the beginning: He's a politician; I'm a pastor. He's got to do what politicians do."
Wright also said Obama should have sent a U.S. delegation to the World Conference on Racism held recently in Geneva, Switzerland, but that the president did not do so for fear of offending Them Jews and Israel.
"Ethnic cleansing is going on in Gaza. Ethnic cleansing of the Zionist is a sin and a crime against humanity, and Them Jews don't want Barack talking like that because that's anti-Israel," Wright said.
Outraged over a suicide attack on a local mosque during Friday prayers, about 400 residents formed the militia early Saturday and began battling Taliban militants. The attack on the anti-Taliban mosque killed at least 40 people and wounded 80 others.
