AIDS Activists “Pine” For Dubya?

Remember this sign that appeared in Minnesota a few months ago?

The “culprits” behind it were a group of small business owners who “feel Washington is against them”.

But is it possible that some AIDS activists share the sentiment espoused in the billboard?

Speaking of 43, his fellow Republicans are worried about the potential negative impact of his soon-to-be-published memoirs.

One prominent conservative compared the Bushies’ public-relations savvy to LeBron James.

Ouch…

Imagine There’s No A/C…

It’s easy if you try. This fellow is even more idealistic than John Lennon, and based solely on “Imagine” that’s saying a lot.

Elsewhere around the Internets:

Forget false imprisonment, this momo should be locked up for uttering “Ironing is woman’s work”. Then in prison he can find out that gender roles get a tad blurry…

When an news item contains the phrase “Mexican Clown” it’s not going to be good and it isn’t.

Awesome article on Yankee Mariano Rivera, perhaps the best closer of all time and a seemingly model human being. I know he’s a Yankee but I just can’t bring myself to heap on him the same loathing I have for the rest of his teammates.

More World Cup fall out… Spain welcomes her heroes with style… Paul the Octopus wins something México will never win, a World Cup… Tell us how you really feel Johnny.

A study by the CDC? With collaboration from what, the state of Arizona? The goal of this study is laid bare for anyone willing to connect the dots, someone call Oliver Stone.

Next time you see a “metal detectorist” at the beach, give the man a wide berth.

Sammy Sosa to the Rescue in Arizona

As previously blogged about here, a law in Arizona will give police officers the power to ask people for proof that they are in this country legally.

The officers will not ask everyone for this proof but only those individuals whom they “reasonably suspect” are here illegally. No doubt this will have to do mainly with the swarthy complexion of some of my paisanos.

So if you don’t have “papers”, live in Arizona and spend most of your time mowing lawns (even those of anti-immigrant people) what are you to do to avoid being profiled put in a difficult spot?

In comes former MLBer Sammy Sosa. Slammin’ Sammy, whose “inability” to speak English before Congress and dark complexion would raise all sorts of suspicion where he to reside in Arizona, could lend a helping hand to those ‘suspicious’ folk there.

How? Well by endorsing and selling whichever of Prof. Snape’s potion he used to “cleanse” his mug:

With Sammy’s Salve, some of my hard-working paisanos can continue to do the jobs no one else will without having to worry about la chota getting all up in their business.

H.R. 4872

Based on some reactions to the passage of the bill whose name crowns this post, the world is coming to an end or the bill is the beginning of the end. To others, it is a vindication of the hope placed on Barack Obama.

It pains me to admit it, but some of my fellow Christians reacted with threats (hypothetical ones) of violence towards some members of the Democratic congressional leadership. How this reflects what we profess to believe, accept and live by or the God who died for us, I haven’t the faintest idea.

Personally, I don’t know what’s in the bill (does anyone?) or whether or not it will help the people of this country or not. Since I don’t take my talking points from Fox News or MSNBC, I haven’t formed an opinion on it, or rather haven’t let others form my opinion of it.

Here’s one opinion on it, and since it comes from the “How Stuff Works” people, it must be credible, right?

What I do know or what is somewhat clear, is that this legislation is more about politics than anything else. Politics has been called the art of compromise but I rather think of it as one of the best illustrations of human depravity.

Why?

Because politicians aren’t motivated by the true, the good and the beautiful, though they pay plenty of lip service in that direction. Rather their motivation seems to be re-election, which ultimately only serves their ego. Most offensive of all, what they do is referred to as “public service”.

Having said all this, what dog does Stones’ guitarist Ronnie Wood (right) have in this fight?

The New Kryptonite

Kryptonite

That’s right, Vicks VapoRub will do to toenail fungus what kryptonite does to the Man of Steel. What Will Muschamp does to offenses throughout the land, but I digress…

According to this piece in the New York Times, rubbing your infected toenail(s) once or twice a day with Vicks VapoRub will em, rub Digger(below) out of your life.

That screen shot is one of the greatest moments in the history of television advertising.

Pedialyte

Pedialyte

The Elixir of Champions

Well I don’t know about “champions” but it is the libation that one Colt McCoy drank at halftime of the Texas-Texas Tech game last Saturday as he was recovering from the flu. Read about it here.

This from the story,

NCAA rules prohibit McCoy from endorsements, but come January we might see a new face promoting Pedialyte that replaces the bear currently on the label.

I’d take it further and exploit the uncanny resemblance of our beloved quarterback to former “must-have” holiday toy, the Furby. Check it out:

Furby
Seriously, no relation

On a serious note, let’s hope that Colt regains his form from last season before the Mighty Miners from UTEP come to the ATX this Saturday.

Our Dogs are Children, Our Children are Evidence

Please don’t misconstrue this post as another tired attempt at bemoaning how this country has gone into the toilet (to quote Chris Rock, “we’re losing everything”).

As if this nation was Utopia before certain ‘progressive’ elements imposed their worldview on the culture. It never was, it never will be, after all the literal meaning of Utopia is ‘no place’.

Let us also keep in mind what the Rob Bell (below) said.rob-bell1

His words are as follows,

Why blame the dark for being dark? It is far more helpful to ask why the light isn’t as bright as it could be

All that being said, check out the following story:

Miami abortion clinic owner threw live baby away, prosecutors say

If we can get past the contradictions in the headline and actually go into the story, it is acknowledged that the accused is alleged to

…delivering a live baby during a botched procedure and then throwing the infant away.

The child of course is dead, so what kind of charges is this woman facing? Involuntary manslaughter? Criminal neglect? Homicide?

No, rather “practicing medicine without a license and tampering with evidence.”
