REPUBLICANS STAND WITH BP AGAINST SPILL INVESTIGATION

Why would republicans stand against an investigation into the Gulf oil-spill? It is no mystery to me...they are trying to protect the special interest groups that most of them own stock in.



Anybody have any other ideas?

SAME SEX MARRIAGE DEMONSTRATION

Youtube wouldn't publish this because it was against their "Guidelines." Nudity is allowed on Youtube if it serves an educational purpose. This is educational in my opinion, and it is clearly a matter of free speech. There is nothing prurient about this video and these people are demonstrating in front of City Hall. I would like to know why the cop in the video didn't arrest them if this is so indecent?

TAXES, WELFARE, UNEMPLOYMENT AND DRUGS

I get tired of right-wing, conservatives always complaining how their taxes go to helping the "lazy, immoral, and/or stupid drug using" people on welfare.  

First, that portion of federal tax dollars that actually go to welfare is so small that the government would not save much by excluding the tiny portion of people who could be excluded for drug-use.  Over 75% of all federal tax dollars go to the military for blowing stuff up--if that money was used to build schools and hospitals, we probably wouldn't have anyone out of work.

Second, people who have lost their jobs due to involvement with drugs are already precluded from collecting unemployment, whether that makes sense or not.

Third, people who collect unemployment have already had money taken out of their paychecks to cover the premiums for unemployment insurance.

Fourth, all of these people on welfare which the small-minded author suspects of sitting around doing drugs instead of looking for work, are also tax-payers.

Fifth, urinalysis is useful for screening some drugs such as marijuana, which stay in the system for at least thirty days.  However, other even more destructive drugs, such as cocaine, speed, and alcohol, pass through the system much faster and are therefore harder to detect.  Would our unhappy, tax-paying author prefer to have only cocaine addicts on welfare and let the pot-heads die?

SADDAM SNUFF FILM

I never bought the whole "Snuff Saddam!" thing. His trial was a complete sham in my opinion. In case you were too young to remember, here it is, but be careful, this is not for the squeamish:


Did you notice that no other faces were discernible, except that of the doomed man? I am not even sure that it is an authentic execution...did you see how they turned up his collar around his neck and carefully placed the rope around it? If it was a real execution this man appears to have been the victim of a "political assassination," a practice that has been declared to be a war-crime in the United States Of America, as well as every other civilized country.
