Roger Friedman of Fox New reviewed the new movie "Valkyrie". Rather than focus on Tom Cruise's limited acting repertoire or the wardrobe's lack of attention to detail - since he is supposed to be an entertainment reporter - he ranted about how the movie… more »

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad wished Christians a Merry Christmas. Then went on to say that: “If Christ were on Earth today, undoubtedly He would fight against the tyrannical policies of prevailing global economic and political systems, as He did in His… more »

Dear Scum-sucking-asshole, Last night you stole my friend's Christmas tree as it was tied on top of his car. The reason why he didn't bring it upstairs was because his wife, with their three little kids, were in the car and had to get unloaded first.… more »

I'm not a tolerant driver, and less so on the evening commute. There's really only two choices to go home, one a major highway and one a minor route. Both back up, typically the highway for longer, although it is more direct. In either case my fellow… more »

Well if the Banking Industry is any standard, they'll be making good fucking money, bailout non-withstanding. Banks that are getting taxpayer bailouts awarded their top executives nearly $1.6 billion in salaries, bonuses, and other benefits in the… more »

In an infamous reprise of "there's no such thing as the Greenhouse Effect" Stephen L. Johnson, the Chief of the EPA ruled that gasses that contribute to this effect do *not* need to be considered in the building of new coal plants. Yes that's right,… more »

Some so-called Christians need to examine how Christ-like they are themselves before passing judgment. Give someone a bit of power and they let it go to their heads. It is nimrods like these that keep me from organized religion. Case in point are the… more »

If you go to a doctor, or even if you don't, you expect that (in the United States) you can go to a pharmacy and get the medicines you need to make yourself better. Lets say you need jock-itch powder, or a yeast-infection treatment. It's totally… more »

It's good to be different, sometimes. It's not really all that great to be different when you're clinging to the same principles as those considered "backward" or "deficient". You read articles all the time, hear it in the news about how behind the… more »

I was reading this article from the AP today and it crossed my mind that it's going to get so bad that even the crooks won't bother getting out to rob people. Fast-Food Worker Laughs, Tells Robber to Get a Job 9:00 PM ET SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- A San… more »

Yay Shop Rite!

It's not often that I get the opportunity to applaud someone in this space. Usually when I do, it's something like reminding us to remember veterans or value those freedoms that we have. This time, I'm giving praise to a supermarket. One with the… more »

Maybe not better, just less annoying. I am hearing the familiar beeping in my basement. It took me about 20 minutes to even make that conclusion. We know the beep - the short chirp that is just loud enough to be annoying but not loud enough or long… more »

I'm living in alliterative hell right now. No wait, we *all* are living in it. Gosh some times I forget that "it's not all about me". Even though it is my blog. So, in an astonishing maneuver so far afield from our current situation of presidential… more »

A while back, Lori Drew logged into MySpace, created a false persona and tormented a kid that was bothering her child. Her target got all sorts of fucked up and they killed themselves. Very tragic. The mother is a piece of shit and if there is a hell,… more »

So I was thinking about the whole automaker bailout deal. Why the hell should they *all* get a break? I've got a better idea. Instead of giving them some crazy number in billions of dollars, cut that by two thirds and give it to the one that comes up… more »

Thank you Lee Iacocca

So now the auto manufacturers want $34 billion, and in return they're willing to adjust their values, well at least a hair. Mulally and Wagoner both said they'd work for $1 per year -- something Chrysler's plan said Nardelli already does -- if their… more »
