This Blog is Famous

Yah...well, it got linked to a CNN story about the air traffic controllers needing modernized equipment (see The Least You Should Know from a couple of days ago).

Scroll to the bottom and click on "From the Blogs."

I'll be signing autographs for the next 15 minutes.

The Least You Should Know (7/25)

A new study reveals that a person doubles his chance of becoming obese by having an obese friend.

An anonymous cannibal said, "Tell me about it."

Debating the Debate

The Democratic debate with YouTube videos was puzzling. Remember that this is the party so concerned about what other countries think about the United States -- We have to be careful not to offend anybody. Bush makes us look stupid and the world is watching!

Of the 3000 videos submitted, 39 aired. Those making the final cut included questions from a snowman and a woman singing about her taxes.

I'm fine with that. I like to laugh. But the next time we here cries about how Bush makes the U.S. look stupid, I'll defer to the snowman for a comment because the world is watching.

Keep the Change

Conservative taxpayer groups say today marks the day this year when the average American worker will have earned enough to pay for his share of government taxes.

It’s called “cost of government day,” or as liberals call it, ”Christmas.”

The Earth Hating Hybrid

By now you heard that Al Gore's son was arrested for going 100 mph in his Toyota Prius. Oh, in his car the officer found marijuana, Valium, Xanax and Vicodin, with no prescription.

Lay off him; he's not eating meat but instead promoting the consumption of green, leafy vegetables. Perhaps a promotion for the weekend concerts?

I'm wondering about the hybrid car. Now I care about the earth; perhaps not so much that I fly around the world spewing hundreds of thousands of gallons of jet fuel into the atmosphere to tell people the earth is dying, but I do care.

I've been lectured about my gas-drinking SUV. Accordingly, what makes me more of an earth hater is how inefficient the SUV gets for every mile per hour I drive over 55.

So here's Al Gore III, driving a hybrid that does at least 100 mph. Why does Toyota make a hybrid that goes that fast? Shouldn't it only go as high as 75 mph since that's the highest speed limit in the country (not counting my son's school zone)?

As I've been told, it's awfully inefficient to drive a car that fast.

Sorry, Not Everybody Can be Iran

A new study shows that the world trusts the U.S. less than it used to. Well, I trust Taco Bell less than I used to; but I still go there.

Call me crazy but I think you judge a country's popularity by the number of people entering and exiting. Have the illegals waltzing across the border seen this pole? Somebody should tell them that we're not that great. While we're at it, let's alert the bathtub occupants floating in from Cuba.

What about the countries needing aid when a natural disaster hits? Those shady Americans are the first on the scene with their food and money. Creeps.

Okay, so maybe we dropped the ball with Paris Hilton. No country is perfect.
