Stupid Things From Around The World Of News

You Can’t Get Your Drivers License Till You Can Afford A Prius:  Why No I Don’t Give A Shit That You Are 16 Work At Wendy’s And A Prius Costs At Least $23,000!

“Michigan’s Legislature is in session and Reps. Bert Johnson, D-Detroit, and Dan Scripps, D-Leland, think the driving school rules aren’t hitting all cylinders.

The duo has introduced a bill that would mandate environmental activism into the curriculum. Students learning to drive would be forced to spend some of their time in class learning about “the importance of carpooling and using public transportation,” as well as “identifying the attributes of a fuel-efficient vehicle,” and “recycling vehicle parts and fluids,” among other secondary lessons that have nothing to do with captaining a two-ton machine down the freeway.”

This isn’t even in the hell holes people call the public school system it’s a mandate that private driving schools for children teach about the environment.  How many kids die a year on our roads?  Really if you are going to mandate anything mandate that these places place a larger emphasis on safety and sobriety, not this green bullshit.  What Michigan really needs to worry about is the fact they have one of the highest jobless rates in the country, but no why bother with that when you indoctrinate children at their parents expense in your little Green Religion.

Don’t You Even Think About Doing The Right Thing In England

“A former soldier who handed a discarded shotgun in to police faces at least five years imprisonment for “doing his duty”.

Paul Clarke, 27, was found guilty of possessing a firearm at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday – after finding the gun and handing it personally to police officers on March 20 this year.

The jury took 20 minutes to make its conviction, and Mr Clarke now faces a minimum of five year’s imprisonment for handing in the weapon.”

Um… He found a gun and turned it into the police, and he is a criminal how?

“Judge Christopher Critchlow said: “This is an unusual case, but in law there is no dispute that Mr Clarke has no defence to this charge.

“The intention of anybody possessing a firearm is irrelevant.”

Oh, never mind I guess in England it is illegal, granted so is self defense so it all makes sense.

Ah, this is England, and it sucks:

Kangaroo Courts, Not Just For Communists And Third World Shit-holes

“The Obama administration’s guarantee of a conviction in the trial of self-proclaimed architect of the Sept. 11 attacks Khalid Sheikh Mohammed could be used by the defense team to claim the jury pool has been tainted, says a former Defense Department official who calls the statements prejudicial.”

Really, who would have thought?   Seriously though you can’t “guarantee” a conviction in a jury trial unless it’s tainted.  Bill Ayers was guilty as shit but he still walked.  In war there are a lot of things you can get away with doing you can’t in law enforcement.  Did they waterboard Mohammad?  Oh, they did, his confession doesn’t count in the American judicial system.

If Khalid walks it’s going to be the biggest fuck up on the planet and Obama is going to have to answer for it.  If Khalid is convicted he can spend years in appeal claiming the jury was rigged and even people that agree with throwing the bastard in the electric chair are going to have problems trying to claim the who thing wasn’t tainted and a set-up from the start.  Plus they are having the trial in New York City, the place that had the largest loss during the attacks and a jury waiting to convict.  There is no way Mohammad can get a fair trial, it’s not possible.  We should have just poisoned his food in jail and said he died of some disease, people might suspect foul play but no one other than terrorists and assholes are really going to care that much.

Sounds Like Fail

“The US Senate could start debating its final healthcare reform bill as early as Tuesday, pitting Democrat against Democrat over the controversial question of abortion coverage.

The debate puts Barack Obama, who campaigned as pro-choice, in the middle of one of the most emotional and enduring debates in US politics, potentially forcing him to take sides on an issue he has tried to avoid since becoming president.

The House of Representatives this month passed a healthcare reform bill that would sharply curtail access to abortion. Several Democrats in the Senate have said they want similar restrictions in their own bill.”

The fun is that either way it’s going to piss people off.  If the Obama vetoes it because of the Stupak-Pitts Amendment he just lost the health care bill and they are going to have problems trying to get another one through because they are going to lose a lot of support without it.  If Obama passes it he will piss the living hell out of his base and have problems trying to get them to help him with anything else because they feal betrayed and he has just pissed off the majority of Americans who didn’t want the bill in the first place particularly independent voters and he might have just fucked up his chance of getting reelected (requiring he hasn’t already).  The abortion issue is always going to lose you votes, but with the current national mood on abortion you will lose more votes being very pro-choice than very pro-life so you shouldn’t bother trying to hard to go after the pro-choice vote so you would think Obama would sign the bill, but if he does he has just pissed off a bigger voting block and it has nothing to do with abortion.  The smart move is for Obama to veto it if it gets to him, but he need to know he will have lost the health care debate  the second he does.

What will he do, voting “present” isn’t going to work on this one.

Communist News Network Finds Out The Truth About Communism
“A CNN correspondent said Monday she was detained byChinese security guards in Shanghai for two hours for displaying a T-shirt on camera depicting US President Barack Obama as Mao Zedong.

Emily Chang, a Beijing-based correspondent for the US television network, said in a blog post on CNN.com that she hunted down the shirt after hearing they had been banned amid fears they “may offend the American president.”

The shirt shows Obama, who is making his first visit to China as president, in a Red Army uniform staring into the distance in a pose made famous by the former Chinese leader.”

It sucks that the reported got detained but what did she think was going to happen?  The funny thing about this is that a communist country was trying to protect the president of a Capitalistic Constitutional Republic (people call it a democracy since civics classes in public school suck) and didn’t want the President to get offended by being called a communist, or be called similar to the father of Chinese Communism.    Is “communism” a dirty word even in China now?

Here’s the shirt:

Remember When I said Chavez Wasn’t Quite Stupid/Crazy Enough To Try To Start A War With Columbia?  I Might Be Wrong.

“Venezuelan soldiers blew up two pedestrian bridges across the Colombia-Venezuelan border, Colombia’s government said Thursday, according to Reuters.

It is the latest incident in what is an already-strained relationship.

Colombian Defense Minister Gabriel Silva said explosives were used to blow up the bridges in what he called a violation of international law, Reuters reported.

“Uniformed men, apparently from the Venezuelan army, arrived in trucks on the Venezuelan side at two pedestrian bridges that link communities on both sides … and then proceeded to dynamite them,” Silva said, according to Reuters.”

I’m not sure who owns the bridges, they probably don’t really consider it either countries property but this isn’t good.  It might be just more posturing by Chavez it might not be.  If they are just posturing they might be doing it so they can claim that they did it because the feared Columbia would use the bridges to attack Venezuela even though Columbia isn’t trying to do that, but it makes good propaganda for the stupid.  Or Venezuela wants the bridges gone because they want a war and want to make sure Columbia can’t use the bridges for a counter attack.   I don’t want war, but if Venezuela wants war I hope the Columbians blow them to hell.  I stand with Columbia, I have never met one that wasn’t a nice person and I have never met a Columbian woman that was anything less than beautiful.

Here’s An Idea, Try To Find A Better System

“Cuba has ordered all state enterprises to adopt “extreme measures” to cut energy usage through the end of the year in hopes of avoiding the dreaded blackouts that plagued the country following the 1991 collapse of its then-top ally, the Soviet Union.

In documents seen by Reuters, government officials have been warned that the island is facing a “critical” energy shortage that requires the closing of non-essential factories and workshops and the shutting down of air conditioners and refrigerators not needed to preserve food and medicine.”

Seriously maybe communism doesn’t work, I know it might supprise your college professors (who have never been outside a university or had a job outside one) but maybe communism just doesn’t work.

Thanks Crazy Man, I’m Glad I got A Choice

“Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called on the US to choose between Israel and Iran on Tuesday night, according to Iranian state media.”

So the choice is a country that likes and supports us vs. a country that hates our guts and funds terrorism?  How about this I will support both Israel and the 25 year old Iranians that you have been torturing, raping and murdering since we all have something in common.  We are sick of your shit, sick of the Mullahs, sick of the corruption and sick of you!  The younger generation of Iranians don’t really care that much about Israel, yeah they are raised to hate Jews and Israel but they hate you more.  Much, much more.  They were raised to hate America but they don’t, they even kind of like us, even with all our disagreements.  Their problems don’t come from America or Israel they come from the Iranian government.

So I’m going to give you a real choice Mr. Alamadamadingdong.  You can chose between your own people or the voices in you head and the voices of your puppet masters the Mullahs.

Pick one because you and your friends took power in a revolution, can you be sure that you wont lose power – and your head – in one?

And Still We Wait
“President Barack Obama does not plan to accept any of the Afghanistan war options presented by his national security team, pushing instead for revisions to clarify how and when U.S. troops would turn over responsibility to the Afghan government, a senior administration official said Wednesday.”

I have already gone in length about this, I’m not going to go farther right now except to say hurry the fuck up already!

Here Is One For The I Don’t Give A Shit File
“The Oprah Winfrey Show,” an iconic broadcast that grew over two decades into a daytime television powerhouse and the foundation of a multibillion-dollar media empire, will end its run in 2011 after 25 seasons on the air, Winfrey’s production company said Thursday night.”

Who cares?  Really does anyone with a brain really give a shit?

 

 

I was going to make fun of a lot more news stories but it’s Friday and I decided it’s time to go out.  I’ll have some real posts latter and I might even have a Drunken Rant eventually.

I hate it here…

  1. On the “Kangaroo Court” I wonder what a “jury of his peers” will look like?

    Good post.

  2. They would look unwashed and have to be checked for bombs every five minutes.

  3. That’s quite a bit you got there, glad to hear the CNN reporter got detained by the commie, what with their recent celebrations of communism and all. Couldn’t have happened to a more deserving bunch of scumbags.
