Have you heard the one about the self-pleasuring fetus? Of all the arguments I've ever heard against abortion, I think "little boy baby fetuses masturbate in the womb" has to be the most ridiculous one of all.
Good thing we don't have ACORN to kick around anymore.
A Basset, Va. man pleaded guilty Tuesday night to charges of voter fraud and forgery of thousands of signatures on Newt Gingrich's campaign ballot, Charlottesville's WVIR reported.
Prosecutors said Adam Ward, 28, collected more than 11,000 signatures in December 2011 to get Newt Gingrich's name on the Virginia presidential primary ballot. Investigators were unable to verify 4,000 of those signatures.

What ever happened to the fine art of sacking groceries?
Memo to the disinterested bag-boy at Albertson's -- I know you're bored to tears standing around "helping" people while your X-Box sits at home, alone and silent, but I brought this bag with me for two reasons: 1) The Happiest Town in America has decided to impose a fee on me if you provide me one (a policy I support actually), and Second) I want to carry my six-pack and my gallon of milk inside the bag, something I can't do if you put the bread and vegetables on the bottom. Dude puts half-a-dozen items in my shopping bag -- cheese, lunch meat, chips, bread and veggies -- then hands me the bag, the six-pack and the milk! Really? WTH? Do I have three hands?

The White House has announced that the US will send an additional $300-million in "life-saving humanitarian assistance" to Syria, bringing the total contribution by American taxpayers to Syria to $815-million.
Meanwhile, here at home, we cut $400-million from Head Start, forcing more than 70,000 underprivileged children off the crucial early education program.
Priorities? Patriotism? Pffffft.
Just woke up from a vivid dream in which I was riding around with the president in his SUV. He was in the far back seat, driver's side. I was riding shotgun, up front, and I was pissed, giving him a major ration of shit for turning out to be -- in so many ways -- just like every other president: duplicitous, devious and disappointing.
What prompted my anger was the NSA data-mining program, but what pushed me over the edge was the sending of military aid (read: bombs, weapons and more death courtesy of the USA) to Syria. SYRIA. I mean, really?
I was looking back over the seat, turned three-quarters around, spitting with anger at Obama, red-faced with apoplexy, pointing at him with what might have been a child's model rocket, like the kind you launch 600-feet in the air out on the schoolyard playground. It said "nuclear weapon" along the side, and I was jabbing it at him like a blackboard pointer and shouting, over and over:
"You had your chance. You had your chance!! YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE!!! YOU! HAD! YOUR! CHANCE!"

Congress has proposed cutting $20.5-billion from the federally-funded Food Stamps program (the Senate only wants to cut $4-billion), at the same time the President has decided to start providing military aid to Syrian rebels. And they don't even feel the need to mention how much that's going to cost. Nowhere in this article (or any other I could find) does it say how much we're going to spend in Syria, but we do know the Food Stamp cuts could force more than 200,000 needy children off the school lunch program.

As an occasional reminder about our nation's misplaced priorities, why are we cutting $10-million from the annual budget of the federally-funded Meals on Wheels program (cuts which will mean 4 million fewer meals will be delivered to more than 39,000 senior citizens), when we budget more than $700-BILLION -- PER YEAR -- for military spending?

When it comes to dealing with sexual harrasment, our nation's military leaders should take a cue from the Chief of the Australian Army...

Since the killings in Newtown last December 14, at least 5048 new victims have met their demise on the wrong end of the gun.
So it goes.
When the best news you can find is that the owner of the company that makes the AR-15 can't sell the business because it is so toxic (and YAY! for the free market), yet we still can't pass a simple law requiring universal background checks, it's clear we still have a long way to address the nation's unhealthy fixation with guns.
