I have always wondered something. Why is it that people who are anti-choice, and anti-contraception always make the claim that it is “G-D’s plan” and that is why you can’t use contraception or have an abortion. But they do not rail against in-vitro fertilization? I mean, I will wish congratulations to the 60 year old mom here in NJ that gave birth to twins this week. But why isn’t that against “the plan”?
Just plain wrong – Big Brother (Australia) producers refuse to tell contestant that her father passed away.Â They have the backing of the girls family, who said that she shouldn’t be told until afterwards.Â So now he is dead and buried, and she still doesn’t know.Â I would be bitter as hell, if it was me.
Pulling out the good – OK, so in my “wacky liberal” way I am not happy that Congress buckled and gave in on the funding for Iraq.Â But in an effort to find the one good thing about it, I am happy that they finally got the minimum wage increase pushed through. Â Of course this will probably just be used as an excuse to push more jobs over overseas.Â I mean, when a local newspaper can outsource journalism jobs to India toÂ “cover” town eventsÂ Â It is clear that it is about nothing but profits.
They can’t be this stupid… can they? – States are requiring sex-offenders to register their e-mail address along with their home address.Â Or at least that is the plan, as several States are looking to turn this into law. Â Does anybody with half a brain think this legislation is worth something… anything at all?Â Do they think you are tied to a single e-mail address?Â Have they ever heard of Yahoo! Mail?Â Live Mail?Â GMail?Â Lycos Mail?Â (Do I need to go on?)Â It is times like this that I am convinced that the election process turns minds to mud.Â What other reason could there be?
More Proof there are too many lawyers in this country – Josh Hancock, a St. Lois Cardinal pitcher, goes out, gets drunk, hits a tow truck assisting a stalled car and kills himself (and fortunately only himself).Â His Father sues the restaurant that served him (ok, I can see that one… sort of… I don’t agree, but I can see it), the tow truck driver and the owner of the stalled vehicle that the tow truck was assisting. Â Does anybody else see some counter suits coming up soon?
Satan made him do it – This is so pathetic it would have been perfect for the old church lady skit on SNL.Â A 19-year old man puts his 2 month old daughter in the microwave… and the mother defends him saying Satan made him do it. She claims that Satan was threatened by the young man’s intention to become a preacher.Â To me it sounds more like Satan found an partner than being threatened by him.
Â Remember – While it has certainly become a tradition to welcome summer in on Memorial Day weekend, please also remember the fine men and women that have given their lives for this country.Â Whether you believe in the current events of this country and war or not, it is these fine people that have helped protect us, defend us and keep us free.Â They are not political pawns, they are people.Â People who should be remembered with reverence and appreciation.Â Thank You.
