Breaking News:



Greenpeace and Sierra Club policy wonks are scrambling to find a connection
between the Mars Rovers and Big Oil, Halliburton and the Bush
Administration after it was revealed that Martian ice caps are rapidly
melting.. apparently due to global warming.

When it was suggested that increased solar activity might be the cause of
the phenomenon on both planets, activist Barba Streisand exclaimed: "Dont
be an ass.. you know how far away Mars is from here?"

Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and New Black Panther Party leader Attorney
Malik Zulu Shabazz suggested it was a Bush plot to kill indigenous
Martians.

Meanwhile, commenters on Markos Zuniga's Blog DailyKos are suggesting a CIA
plot to siphon off the CO2 polar caps from Mars to Earth in order to hasten
the economic disruptions already in the works for Cuba and Venezuela.

Cindy Sheehan, after consulting with interstellar statesman Ramsey Clark,
demanded an immediate end to the occupation of Mars, in addition to Iraq
and New Orleans.

Hmm, global warming on Mars...
That _must_ be why FEMA is stockpiling ice up in Gloucester, MA.

Now it all makes sense.
1.) Order waaaay too much ice for Katrina victims.
2.) Truck it around for a couple weeks at great expense.
3.) Hide it up in the corner of the country, in a deep freeze.
4.) Pay to store ice long enough so its value will justify the cost of a rocket
to Mars.

And I thought it was stupid to store ice, when it would be much cheaper to make
more. What a fool I've been.

Re: Breaking News:

Yeah.. it's funny, although..

Makes me wonder how many were watching Kennedy and Biden in the Roberts'
hearing and laughing along with me.

.....'cept I wasnt really laughing.. because the "Red State Idiots" look
at that boneheaded behavior and lose any trust they might have had in
their government.

You know panther boy never DID answer the question "do you believe
there is a mother ship orbiting the Earth?" If that jackass
dirt-for-brains ever met a *real* Zulu, he would most certainly have a
feather laden spear shoved where the sun doesn't shine. He is an insult
to intelligant people all over the world, whether they be black or white.

I am not republican or democrat, I cant be, I can't think in absolutes on

What I have issues with is our current president is a poor leader.
And I won't miss him when he goes.
The country is in a transition period, our mostly laxidazical ways of
raising our kids needs change.
Now this doesn't apply to all families of course because some do great jobs.
Our country still has smart people after all we created the microprocessor
and the mustang.
Of course now the chief designer of the mustang is Chinese.
But depending on a job at Target or Walmart to raise a new family wont work,
some of the jobs our dad's had yesteryear will not pay the bills today.
I don't know what will happen in the future but it will probably get worse
before it gets better.
Better education would be a great start, lets put some of the money into
that stuff.
F*ck Iraq, Iran, leave them their, if they f*ck with us again we deal them.
The jobs we lost are gone until we enter another depression or some world
calamity, basically
their gone forever.
And maybe for a nation hopefully moving forward that's good thing.


Funny though...

IMO, we already put plenty of money into education. Trouble is there is
not enough discipline in schools and too much coddling of students.
Instead of requiring students to learn, we are making excuses for their
poor performance and intellectual laziness. It is coming to the point
where we can't afford to make the low cost widgets that we desire.
People who don't educate themselves, or otherwise aren't ambitious, are
going to have less than the people that do. The reality is that anyone
that wants to earn a living making widgets will probably need to move to
China.

Trouble is the next time the f*ck with us might be when they set a nuke
off in Times Square. I don't want to sit around waiting for that day.

There are PLENTY of good jobs available. The trouble is too many people
don't want to do the work to qualify for them. With just minimal post
high school education a person could have a well paying job. Fact is
that too many of the young people (and adults for that matter) today
just don't want to work hard and it will eventually catch up with them.

Over the last ten years I have tried to train young people to use
AutoCAD and to be civil engineering technicians. I finally gave up on
it because most of them didn't want to work hard enough to learn and I
became tired of wasting my time on them. Any young person today that
bothers to get a college education will have a very good career.
Especially if they get a technical degree. Also, many older people
could get well paying jobs if they would spend a little time getting
even a minimal amount of technical education at the community college of
their choice.

With the exception of teachers' salaries. They absolutely suck. The
salaries, that is.

Also, the money that goes into education in general is
disproportionate. Some areas are awash in funds, others are
struggling. This needs to be addressed.

Additionally, teachers are having to become surrogate parents. There's
certainly no funding for this, and it's not fair to the kids who do
want to learn.

Disruptive and unresponsive kids should _not_ continue to be
mainstreamed in with others who want an education. Screw the political
correctness and get those kids out of the mainstream and into something
appropriate. There's where the money is badly needed - to pay for
programs that handle kids that screw up things for everybody else. And
at that point, it gets into the parent(s) and personal responsibility.

We should just give everybody 5 days to leave over there, then just
drop a few dozen nukes. When the smoke clears, we can then annex
everything and own all the oil outright.

Instead of checks and food stamps, they should give these welfare baby
makers hysterectomies.

The parents of those kids are to blame, not so much the kids. Too many
parents want to be "buddies" with their kids instead of being parents.
A lot of today's parents never grew up. They're just big kids
themselves, all looking for the easy way out and the good time. That's
why personal debt is at an all-time high.

And speaking of debt, Dubya better start figuring out where all this
money's going to come from that he's spending like it's going out of
style.
