This is the grossest thing ever!

It's certainly SFW - but NOT safe for your stomach!

(Ok, I love Easter, but those dang Cadbury Cream Eggs just ruin the whole thing for me. They're disgusting! This is a recipe so that you can make your own. As if you would....)

There's so many good ones, I couldn't decide what to highlight:

"'I will bet you the best dinner in the gaslight district of San Diego that military action will not last more than a week. Are you willing to take that wager?'
(Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly, 1/29/03)

'It won't take weeks. You know that, professor. Our military machine will crush Iraq in a matter of days and there's no question that it will.'
(Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly, 2/10/03)

'There's no way. There's absolutely no way. They may bomb for a matter of weeks, try to soften them up as they did in Afghanistan. But once the United States and Britain unleash, it's maybe hours. They're going to fold like that.'
(Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly, 2/10/03) "

Use the link above to see all the quotes from the conservtive reporters who lost their objectivity while they egged on the administration. Who says the media is "liberal?" These yay-hoos were all puffing out their chests like a rooster. It wasn't just FOX either - there are quotes from the LA Times, CBS, and even NPR!

But check out NPR's story - using real clips of our leaders various "justifications" for the war.

It's just amazing how many just turned off their brains and blindly followed. I remember hearing that we needed to "trust our leaders, they must have information we can't have."

The only information I believe they had was how much Halliburton was going to make.

Drivers cite laziness for not using signals:

I hate these people! I absolutely hate it when someone pulls some stunt right in front of me without using their turn signals! Of course, if I were to hit them, it would be my fault because I'm behind them.

"A new national survey reveals that 57% of American drivers admit they don't use their turn signal when changing lanes, but what is most interesting are the excuses drivers gave. According to Response Insurance, a national car insurer, 42% of those drivers say they don't have enough time, 23% admit they are just plain 'lazy,' 17% don't signal because when they do, they forget to turn it off, 12% admit they are changing lanes too frequently to bother, 11% say it is not important, 8% say they don't signal because other drivers don't, and 7% say forgoing the signal 'adds excitement to driving.' The survey was conducted by Response Insurance."

The other thing I hate is when people try to squeeze you out when you do use your signal! Let me make this clear: My turn signal is a statement, not a question. I've already decided that there is enough room for me to change lanes. If you cut me off, it will be your fault.

My gall bladder hurts already!:
"'Baseball's Best Burger,' as the Grizzlies call it, will consist of a hamburger topped with cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon — all between a 'bun' made of a sliced Krispy Kreme Original Glazed donut.

The burger is not for the faint of heart — literally — and will contain roughly 1,000 calories and 45 grams of fat."

I wonder if it comes with a warning label?
Republicans fret as Bush's popularity sinks: "The poll suggests that most Americans wonder whether Bush is up to the job. The survey, conducted Monday through Wednesday of 1,000 people, found that just 37 percent approve of his overall performance. That is the lowest of his presidency.

Bush's job approval among Republicans plummeted from 82 percent in February to 74 percent, a dangerous sign in a midterm election year when parties rely on enthusiasm from their most loyal voters. The biggest losses were among white males."

37 percent? The only good news here is that people are starting to wake up and realize what many of us have been saying all along... Bush is not up to the job, has weak character and isn't a strong leader.

But, I fear, it's too little too late.

Missouri Republicans Attempt To Establish State Religion

That's just crazy. Over zealous Christian lawmakers are going to mess it up for everyone. While I don't favor removing religion from the public arena, I also don't like the idea of any one brand of religion beging favored over all the others.
Save the 76 Ball Petition

I remember this icon at Dodger Stadium all those years. I noticed recently that my local 76 station took away the ball. I'm not so sure it's progress.

Halliburton strikes again:
"Even though an Army audit determined that $263 million of charges by Halliburton were exaggerated or unjustified on its $2.41 billion no-bid contract for fuel deliveries and oil equipment repair in Iraq, the Army said it will pay all but $10.1 million of it. The Times reported Monday that the decision to withhold only 3.8 percent of the charges in question is far below the average of questionable charges that are withheld. That average has ranged between 56.4 percent and 75.2 percent over the last three years."

The biggest welfare cheats of them all? Halliburton, of course. How is it that we continue to let our elected officials grant contracts to these guys? Could there somehow be incentive for our government officials to do this? I wonder what Dick Cheney really thinks of all this. He couldn't be in on it, could he?
