Engorged Expenses

I think if more women got more hardcore about regulating the peen in the manner that old, bad hair white men want to regulate the va-jay-jay, then a lot of this ridiculousness would stop.

Hullabaloo:

"I don't want my tax dollars touching even one milimeter of that overly engorged expense.

I realize that many people disagree with my moral objections to men getting erections which God clearly doesn't want them to get, but my principles on this are more important to me than theirs are to them. So too bad. If you want a boner, pay for it yourself.

And I think those noxious advertisements for the drugs should be banned as well, if only for aesthetic reasons. Having to watch my baby boomer fellows wail 'Viva Viagra' is offensive to anyone who has any taste in music."

Do these people vett anything at all?

Good for this kid.

I've always had a weird feeling about the pledge even when I was a wee lad.

Isn't 'pledging your allegiance' to a political state kinda, well, anti-freedom?

10-Year-Old Won't Pledge Allegiance To A Country That Discriminates Against Gays:

"'I've always tried to analyze things because I want to be lawyer,' Will said. 'I really don't feel that there's currently liberty and justice for all.'"

He's getting some support in his local rag, which is nice.

Hey, kid, you’d better make that pledge�|�Arkansas News:

The Pledge of Allegiance was cooked up by a Baptist fellow in 1892 and subsequently promoted in youth publications for recitation by school children. It is, of course, not anything our founders envisioned and is, in fact, kind of antithetical to our very principle of constitutionally guaranteed liberty.

You cannot force somebody to promise fealty in this gloriously free country.

Having our little kids stand up in public school and salute a piece of cloth to vow faithfulness to their nation is harmless in nearly all cases, like a rhythmic and memorized child’s prayer before meals or at bedtime.

But a mass forced pledging of nationalistic allegiance is, when you really think about it, a perversion of the greater notion that we love and support our country by our own choice and for the very freedoms it grants us, including the freedom not to have to spew officially required words or mantras or chants."

D.C. should tell 'em to get bent. Government and religion do not mix.

We need to start taxing the shit out of churches.

Catholic Church gives D.C. ultimatum on same-sex marriage issue:

"Peter Rosenstein of the Campaign for All D.C. Families accused the church of trying to 'blackmail the city.'

'The issue here is they are using public funds, and to allow people to discriminate with public money is unacceptable,' Rosenstein said.

Rosenstein and other gay rights activists have strong support on the council. Council member Phil Mendelson (D-At Large), chairman of the judiciary committee, said the council 'will not legislate based on threats.'

'The problem with the individual exemption is anybody could discriminate based on their assertion of religious principle,' Mendelson said. 'There were many people back in the 1950s and '60s, during the civil rights era, that said separation of the races was ordained by God.'"

Yawn. Another day, another FAUX lie.

Nice little racket they go going there.

US defense contractors pay insurgents millions, report says :

"'In this grotesque carnival, the US military's contractors are forced to pay suspected insurgents to protect American supply routes,' Roston writes. 'It is an accepted fact of the military logistics operation in Afghanistan that the US government funds the very forces American troops are fighting. And it is a deadly irony, because these funds add up to a huge amount of money for the Taliban.

'It's a big part of their income,' a top Afghan government security official purportedly told told The Nation."

Todd Snider just released a song about the Doc Ellis story. It came out this summer on his new album The Excitement Plan.

Cheers!

That Sonic story was pretty good. I actually heard a recording the other day on the radio of a woman calling in a drunk driver to 911. When asked, "How do you know where this person is going?" She answered, "I am the person." The dispatcher actually had her pull over.

Nice, CP! I need to pick up TS's new one anyway.

Jez, I read that one too. Honest to a fault... a very expensive fault.
