ITEM! Check out the Caps blog! Not only do I have a new, artsy display that I have inflicted on our wall, but a really crazy story to tell. Here's a clip:
Over the next 8 months 50 more cases with similar findings appeared in the same area with 20 of these being fatal. It was noted that all patients were heavy drinkers who mostly drank beer and preferred the Dow brand, consuming an average of 24 pints of alcohol per day.
This story goes on to include corporate intrigue, a well-known surgeon, environmental damage, and just how much 24 pints a day is in American terms. And scandal! Don't miss it!
ITEM! We took another another walk with my friend and her BFF Monday.
|Hooey and his mom. "Don't you DARE put that on your blog!"|
ITEM! My little corner of the internet has been abuzz for the last few days over a comment left on my friend J Day's blog. Some idiot claiming to repesent the Boycott American Women Blog left an anonymous "comment" (not for the first time apparently) attacking American women for everything from the world's total of child molestation cases to the world's leading cause of foot fungus. Needless to say, my friend did not have a very complimentary response to him. He posted more false statistics than a Barack Obama speech, and since I happened to see the comment first, I got in the opening reply: "And you posted this on a WOMAN's blog? Buddy, you are a case." (For which you'll see I got a nice pimping, thank you very much!) From what I've gathered in all the uproar is that this dipstick posts his anonymous cut-and-paste rant exclusively on women's blogs, which makes me wonder if his "blog" isn't just one of those "I get $0.01 for every click" deals with a very "clever advertising gimmick.
ITEM! You've gotta watch this video a friend put on Facebook (boy I have a LOT of friends today!)- it is HILARIOUS!! All commercials should be as funny as this:
ITEM! I discovered something that may come in handy in the future. Twitter is especially valuable at the major league baseball trading deadline! I had rumours as they sprang like apples from the tree, and confirmations before ESPN and CBSSports! I'll have to dial into some experts at NFL final cuts day, too.
ITEM! Chick-fil-A anti-boycott day! Laurie and I will be striking a blow for free speech this afternoon. Because thios has become more than a gay -issue; it has become whether political correctness is going to determine who a law applies to. I don't feel either the jerk in Boston, or Obama's thug-lord in Chicago, should be able to prevent a business from putting down roots anywhere because the owner states a perfectly legitimate value system.
I generally avoid boycotts. Now, refusing to watch the Brickyard because of NASCAR's criminal treatment of Elliot Sadler is a different thing. And if this was just some gay group's attention getting device (which is all most boycotts really are), I'd ignore it too. But this is a government official's changing the way government business is done because 2% of the population thinks it's offensive for a man to marry a woman as God intended (argue that point all you want, but the square peg-round hole system is in place for a reason). This country was built on freedoms like the freedom of speech. If the LGBT community wants to boycott Chick-fil-A, that's their right. If I decide not to buy any more Muppet products because they support LGBT, that would be my point to. But the government is supposed to referee, NOT pick sides. So my views on the other thing notwithstanding, I'm going to eat chicken today to protest Rahm Emmanuel and all his little buddies out there who want to turn government into their own little activist nation.
