We went to test drive some mini-vans today.
This whole “family” thing, they don’t warn you about the mini-vans, do they?
I’m on a mission to make the minivan all kinds of uber-cool.
I suspect better men than I have failed.
Looks like Allah can’t quite get his shit together as a third terrorist attack fails in the United Kingdom.
The United Kingdom raised its terrorism threat level to critical, the highest level possible, Saturday after a vehicle plowed into the terminal building at Scotland’s busiest airport and burst into flames.
Authorities at the highest levels are assuming the fiery incident in Glasgow is directly linked to the discovery Friday of two explosives-laden cars in London.
One of two men who drove the car into the terminal’s main entrance later died of burns at a hospital.
Police and witnesses in Glasgow described an SUV-style vehicle in flames being driven at full speed toward the building.
Few details provided at the moment, but it sounds like yet another explosive device malfunctioned in the hands of radical Islamic incompetence.
I’m thinking this was the act of homegrown extremists, as the Al Qaeda elements in Iraq have only become more agile and complex in their attacks. These idiots seem to be the terrorist equivalent of the Keystone Cops.
It’s easy to point and laugh at these Allahu Akbar yahoos, but even the most unlikely of folks see short-term success every now and again (reference: Lyle Lovett / Julia Roberts).
When people from other countries work very hard, abide by the laws of our land, and cut several large checks for assorted processing fees to the Federal government in order to gain American citizenship, why on Earth would we do this to them?
Just got an e-mail announcing that Lee Greenwood will headline a Fourth of July ceremony at Disney World in which 1,000 legal immigrants will be sworn in as citizens.
It seems our government is doing its best to welcome illegal immigrants with open arms, and then drive out the ones who did things the right way.
Lee. Freakin’. Cheesin’. Greenwood.
The ultimate in maudlin patriotic glurge set to music. Is there something wrong with a little ditty I like to call “The Star-Spangled Banner?”
What a dark, dark time it is for our great land!
Something just feels “not right” about MTV being a source of intelligent criticism with regard to Michael Moore’s new film “Sicko.”
Moore does a real service in bringing these stories to light â€” some of them are horrifying, and then infuriating. One giant health-maintenance organization, Kaiser Permanente, is so persuasively lambasted in the movie that, on the basis of what we’re told, we want to burst into the company’s executive suites and make a mass citizen’s arrest. This is the sort of thing good muckrakers are supposed to do.
Unfortunately, Moore is also a con man of a very brazen sort, and never more so than in this film. His cherry-picked facts, manipulative interviews (with lingering close-ups of distraught people breaking down in tears) and blithe assertions (how does he know 18 million people will die this year because they have no health insurance?) are so stacked that you can feel his whole argument sliding sideways as the picture unspools.
There’s more. Lots more.
Read the whole thing.
The yearning masses have been yearning for several months for today to arrive:
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — After six months of hype, thousands of people Friday will get their hands on the iPhone, the new cell phone that Apple Inc. is banking on to become its third core business next to its moneymaking iPod players and Macintosh computers.
Customers were camped out at Apple and AT&T stores across the nation.
Meanwhile, there was absolutely no wait across the street at the Get a Life store.
Just a quick note… more to come. Spent the afternoon in the company of Mr. and Mrs. Michael as well as Geoff at a C.B. & Potts in south Denver today. The beer and conversation flowed, it was all very lovely and entertaining and a sign of just how the blogosphere brings together people of varying beliefs to enjoy each other’s company… and, uh, the waitress was great and had delightful
It was one year ago today that we lost Acidman.
Yes, he ruffled a lot of feathers and wasn’t well-liked by a number of people, but when he was on he was on.
Love him or hate him, even at 54 years old, his was a life cut too short. I’d have liked to sit down for a beer and some guitar playing at some point when I headed back to the Southeast.
Ah well, rest in peace, as they say.
Not only did Paris Hilton find God in prison, I dare say she came out looking a lot cuter.
Hmmm, can someone frame Rosie O’Donnell for a crime?
It’d have to a pretty serious one to make her an even remotely pleasant human being, but surely someone sees the justice in such an undertaking.
