This country is run by some unhinged, infantile, stupidly evil fuckers, let me tell you.

First case in point: The PreZnit gives a speech:

Bush muses on marriage, chicken-plucking

"Politics comes and goes, but your principles don't. And everybody wants to be loved — not everybody. ... You never heard anybody say, `I want to be despised, I'm running for office.'"

_"The best thing about my family is my wife. She is a great first lady. I know that sounds not very objective, but that's how I feel. And she's also patient. Putting up with me requires a lot of patience."

_"There are jobs Americans aren't doing. ... If you've got a chicken factory, a chicken-plucking factory, or whatever you call them, you know what I'm talking about."

_"There are some similarities, of course" between Vietnam and Iraq, "Death is terrible."

_"I've been in politics long enough to know that polls just go poof at times."

What the fuck is this man talking about? I'm surpised he didn't finish the speech by flinging his own feces into the crowd and tellin' them it was 'just like Mardi Gras'. Unhinged.

Now, let's move on to the juvy evil bastard....

Laurie David and Sheryl Crow: Karl Rove Gets Thrown Under the Stop Global Warming Bus:

"In his attempt to dismiss us, Mr. Rove turned to head toward his table, but as soon as he did so, Sheryl reached out to touch his arm. Karl swung around and spat, 'Don't touch me.' How hardened and removed from reality must a person be to refuse to be touched by Sheryl Crow? Unphased, Sheryl abruptly responded, 'You can't speak to us like that, you work for us.' Karl then quipped, 'I don't work for you, I work for the American people.' To which Sheryl promptly reminded him, 'We are the American people.'"
This shit actual happened. Unbelieveable.


The Blue Angels do Fleet Week in San Francisco every year. The pilot who crashed didn't fly in SF this year but he did annouce the show from the ground.

Here's an article on the crash and below are some pictures I took of the Blue Angels last fall:

Blue Angels Crash:

"BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - Raymond Voegeli was backing out of a driveway when a Navy Blue Angel jet suddenly came ripping through a grove of pine trees and crashed, showering his truck in flames and debris.

Student Body Asks Media to Leave Va. Tech

"Virginia Tech's student government has asked that all journalists leave campus by 5 a.m. tomorrow, according to a statement issued by a spokeswoman.

'Students in general will also be declining all requests and contact from the media,' the statement says. 'Please grant us your understanding as this decision was made by the students, with the intent to regain a sense of normalcy as we prepare to move forward as an academic institution and as a community in the healing process.'"

The FDA wants to fuck with chocolate. Defend Chocolate!!! | The Modesto Bee

The federal Food and Drug Administration is proposing to redefine the very essence of chocolate and to allow big manufacturers such as Hershey to sell a bar devoid of a key ingredient — cocoa butter. The butter's natural texture could be replaced with inferior alternatives, such as vegetable fats. And consumers would never know.

Chocolatier Gary Guittard said it best: "No one can afford to sit back and eat bonbons while America's great passion for chocolate is threatened."

For every defender of traditional chocolate, there are powerful proponents who want to replace cocoa butter with vegetable oil: the Chocolate Manufacturers Association, the Grocery Manufacturers Association and the Snack Food Association. These industry titans have filed a "citizens petition" to the FDA, as the Los Angeles Times recently reported, as if there were some groundswell in society to water down chocolate.

At the moment, chocolate requires two basic ingredients — cocoa and cocoa butter. Cocoa provides much of the flavor; cocoa butter, the texture. So if, say, Hershey wanted to make a chocolate bar without cocoa butter, it can under today's rules. The product has to be labeled "chocolate flavored" (for it still has the cocoa in it) rather than "chocolate." That gives the consumer a signal that something less than chocolate lies beneath the wrapping. To help defend chocolate, visit and learn how to submit feedback to the FDA.


Why Henry Drinks.... because it's good for you!

Fruity cocktails count as health food, study finds:

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A fruity cocktail may not only be fun to drink but may count as health food, U.S. and Thai researchers said on Thursday.

Adding ethanol -- the type of alcohol found in rum, vodka, tequila and other spirits -- boosted the antioxidant nutrients in strawberries and blackberries, the researchers found.

Any colored fruit might be made even more healthful with the addition of a splash of alcohol, they report in the Journal of the Science of Food and Agriculture."
