Perusing the webs today I came across a piece written by Benjamin Reeves at http://www.ibtimes.com.  In his column he informs us that…

The Next Pinto? 5.1 Million Jeep Cars Under Fire Investigation

Up to 5.1 million Jeep Grand Cherokee, Jeep Cherokee and Jeep Liberty model SUVs may be subject to one of the largest recalls in history, depending on the results of an engineering analysis by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The investigation centers around whether the Jeep models in question are subject to a higher rate of bursting into flames in a rear-impact accident than other similar vehicles in the same class. The NHTSA upgraded the investigation on Thursday to include three models of Jeep vehicles for model years 1993 to 2004.

“NHTSA’s assessment of the data collected …  indicates that rear-impact-related tank failures and vehicle fires are more prevalent in the [Jeep Grand Cherokee] than in the non-Jeep peer vehicles,” an investigation summary from the NHTSA said Thursday.

The moral authority on marriage?

..and just who would that be? Why,Bristol Palin of course. The unwed,teenage pregnancy, mother of one. She,of course is the arbiter of morality when it pertains to this issue. As an example of her sage wisdom, she says that childern need a father’s influence to be well adjusted.

“we know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home. Ideally, fathers help shape their kids’ worldview.”

ok, well not her kid. Just everyone elses. Her kid doesn’t need to see its father, but ofcourse it wouldn’t, she is a Palin and they are real Americans ya know.

Here’s why my ass is chapped..I get it, Obama said he thinks,for himself, gays should be able to live like the human Americans they are, and be allowed to marry like white folk.. er, real folk..instead of having to jump the broom..uh, I mean get a notarized letter saying they can make decisions for their loved one..and to counter this postiton… Cnn gives us..

Bristol Palin..

What the fuck??

Why in the hell is anyone putting this numskulls words up?.. and why in the fuck are they put up opposite of the President of the Unites States like she is somehow his equal,somehow more knowing and worldlier and we should take hers as if from some old wisdom that has been lost and only recently found..This person is 21 years old, she is known only because she was the unwed,knocked-up, teenage daughter of a Vice Presidential candidate in a failed Presidential campaign. Kim Kardashian or Lindsey Lohan have more to say that this ijit. But now, CNN is using two opposing opinions on gay marriage, the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama.. vs.. Bristol Fucking Palin like she’s some wonderment we should hear from when she speaks, and by God, somewhere out there is the mad mad mad world of ours someone is saying, right now, “Of course she’s his equal and should be taken not with a grain salt, but as manna from Heaven.” “Sarah and Bristol Palin 2012!”

and if I’m sure if I cared to watch Fox news tonight, I’d see that someone…

What the hell is wrong with us? Over a Black man?

We’ve lost our fucking minds.



Random Ad?

I saw this feel-good ad at the bottom of a news story and I thought “Hey, what a nice reminder of the upcoming day!”

I mean why not? Mother’s day is this weekend and wouldn’t a kindle be a great gift?

wtfmom

So what’s the big deal?

Only the news story above this fucked up ad..

Talk about wrong place, wrong time..




Pink Slime..? WTF?

If there was one issue you’d think we’d all… communists,socialist,fascists,Marxist… more commonly referred to as, Republicans and Democrats, be with one on it would be pink slime. What the hell is pink slime? Oh no, you really don’t want to know, but I guess you probably need to in order to see just how out-of-fucking-whack our political climate has gotten since a black man was voted into the office of the President..

mmm…mmm… goood! Just like mom used to make.

Look, I know it’s supposed to be “safe” for us but does that mean it’s ‘good’ for us?

We have more rapes,more crimes,more illegal drug use..Why? Is there something in the water? Something in the food? I really don’t know, I don’t think anyone knows but with the shit that’s being put into our food and water? Is it any surprise?No. The surprise is,  that we can’t even agree on what we should or shouldn’t be eating. Michelle Obama started a ‘get fit’ program called “Let’s Move” to help lessen childhood obesity.With that in mind, a school in Pennsylvania stopped serving  so much sweet crap to their student and instead of thinking “Hey ,what a good idea”, Sarah Palin responded by going there, insulting the program by labeling it a ‘Nanny-State’ and served sugar cookies to the kids in the audience…. really? I mean.. REALLY? Is she that partisan? So partisan that when the Obama’s want to teach kids to eat healthy,get fit, and become less obese the “Right’s” answer is to call it a Nanny State and served ‘dozens and dozens’ of sugar cookies?

Insanity.. pure and simple.

Which brings us around to pink slime… what the hell is it?

a beef-based food additive that may be added to ground beef and beef-based processed meats as an inexpensive filler.[4][5] It consists of finely ground beef scraps, sinew, fat, and connective tissue which have been mechanically removed in a heated centrifuge at 100°F (38°C)[6] from the fat into liquid fat and a protein paste.[7][8] The recovered material is then processed, heated, and treated with ammonia gas[1] or citric acid to kill E. coli, salmonella, and other bacteria. It is finely ground, compressed into blocks and flash frozen for use as an additive to beef productsQUOTE

It’s the next part that’s so shocking  I think.

In the United States, the additive itself cannot legally be sold directly to consumers, but can constitute up to 15% of ground beef without additional labeling,[9] and can also be added to other meat products such as beef-based processed meats.[9] Prior to the invention of the disinfection process, beef scraps could only be sold as pet food or as an ingredient for cooking oil.[4]QUOTE

Who wants a burger?

These guys sure do…

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Brownback, Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, Nebraska Lt. Gov. Rick Sheehy and South Dakota Lt. Gov. Matt Michels— all agree with the industry view that the beef has been unfairly maligned and mislabeled and issued a joint statement earlier saying the product is safe.

Afterward, Perry, Branstad and others ate burgers made from the plant’s meat at a news conference.

“It’s lean. It’s good. It’s nutritious,” Branstad said as he polished off a patty, sans bun.QUOTE

Now, why did they do this? Shouldn’t we all agree that something that was, up until recently, fed only to dogs but is now being fed to Americans should probably be reconsidered? Naah, we don’t need no stinking regulations and food safety people telling us what to eat and we damn sure don’t want the beef industry to label their ingredients on their food so we can chose for ourselves what we want to eat. That’s just simple communism there folks. We don’t make big business practice fair trade here in this country. We just keep shoveling the shit they give us into our bodies and ask for more and if anyone tries to warn of us of the dangers of things like pink slime or childhood obesity, a growing, dangerous epidemic in the only civilized country without a national health insurance by the way, we’ll fly to their town and serve them sugar cookies and eat their pink slime..

“Why are we here today defending a company that has a rather sterling record dealing with making a food product that is very much needed in this country in a very safe manner? Why are we here today?” Perry said.QUOTE

Because that’s whats needed in this country my friends..

My God, we’re so screwed…

Almost famous and completely ridiculous

I get the need to protect children from the media. In most cases, it’s a really great idea. We don’t want the little heathens to get the idea that if they want to be famous all they have to do it is get pregnant as a teen or commit some crime and get their name and/or face splashed all over media-dom. We have enough Kardashians and Hiltons and even that 17-year old year old who seems to only know how to pout and pose, but I think we’ve, or more specifically CNN, has just taken this practice of protecting children from their selves and their desperation for fame a wee bit to far…..

See if you can spot the problem with this story from CNN.Com

Police in California seek boy, 14, in sexual assaults

(CNN) — Police in Oakland, California, are asking the public for its help in finding a 14-year-old boy wanted in connection with two sexual assaults.

The teen is suspected of attacking two 28-year-old women, in separate incidents on January 6 and January 12.

In the first case, the teen approached the woman while she was walking, pretended to have a firearm and demanded her wallet, before forcing her to an isolated area where he sexually assaulted her, police said.

In the second case, he approached the woman on a bicycle, again pretended to have a firearm and demanded the woman’s purse, before forcing her to an isolated area and sexually assaulted her, they said.

The teen, whom CNN is not identifying because of his age, should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.


That’s right, police are looking for this rapist that CNN isn’t identifying..

“Be on the look-out for this criminal, he is armed and dangerous..really, stay away from him, he will hurt you!”

“Who is it?”

“Can’t tell you that, just be on the lookout for him”

“ummm, ok… here’s your sign”

Nice work CNN.. I would love to see this on Anderson Cooper’s ‘Ridiculist’, but somehow I don’t think he’s going to go up against the mother-company like that.
