Thanks again Thom.
So lets have a revival...
Since I've been gone the big things that have been happening so far as I can tell are that:
A. Sarah Palin is on TV at least once a week in a non-news format.
B. We now have a choice of radiation poisoning or sexual assault when we go to the airport.
|I don't know about you guys, but this looks like one shady motherfucker.|
So let's start with my favorite Alaskan...other then Balto of course (can't believe you guys had to click that link). Unfortunately I haven't had the opportunity to watch any of Mrs. Palin's reality show, but suffice it to say I'd rather not have my possible presidential candidates whoring themselves and their children out on reality television. I mean is the women looking for a career in the White House or a career on the TV in my house?
I'm not going to spend anymore time on Palin this week. We've got more important things to talk about.
How about the TSA? Which violation of privacy would you like to endure to get on an airplane? I do understand that likely hood of getting radiation poisoning from these scanners is pretty much slim and none, with the extremely limited exposure that the average American has to the scans.
However, based on the fact that there are some sicko's out there whacking it while looking at pictures of my junk, I'd really prefer it if they could prove that these scans are being deleted once they're examined for the purpose that they're taken.
I'm also going to take issue with the type of searches that people are going through when they opt out of the scanner. Do we really need to feel up every Grandma and pregnant woman in that way? Wouldn't a simple wand style medal detector be sufficient? Maybe not, but these searches certainly seem to criminalize everyday citizens for the actions of the few. I suppose in the grand scheme of things that's how stupid ass rules get made...thanks to stupid ass people.
Well while the TSA certainly won't cause the demise of society as we know it, Kim Jong-il might. This crazy motherfucker is trying to start a war.
If you didn't know, North Korea (lead by Kim Jong-il) launched missiles into South Korea last week in a border dispute. Honestly I'm not sure what the hell that means exactly, but apparently a couple miles of trackless jungle is worth the lives of innocent people...or at least it is for this crazy bastard.
I know it probably wouldn't do anything but make him into a martyr, but I really wish someone would assassinate this guy or something. I swear I'd give a cookie for the effort.
|Similarities are a little frightening here no?|
Anyway, Happy Hump Day all.
