Juggling Reality

Excuse me, would it be alright if we ….

Dover Delaware – A lawyer representing a condemned ax murderer told the state Supreme Court that prison officials violated state law by adopting a new lethal-injection protocol without allowing for public review or comment. An attorney for the Department of Correction argued that its policies and procedures are confidential and not routinely subject to disclosure. This is a new wrinkle in the fabric of society, getting pre-authorized permission and approval in order to execute an “AX Killer?”  Give me a break.

Could not happen to a nicer guy.

OJ Simpson is suffering through agonizing drug withdrawal behind bars says the National Enquirer. Simpson, recently convicted of armed robbery for trying to steal some of his old sports memorabilia suffers from severe arthritis because of old football injuries and was taking large doses of painkillers. Prison doctors have cut back on those medications, leavening Simpson hobbling and angry. “Sometimes he screams at his jailers, demanding pills,” a source tells the newspaper, “but his cries are being ignored.”  Welcome to your own personal hell OJ, enjoy your stay.

Trouble in Paradise.

There is now valid proof as to why Hawaii is the most expensive place in the U.S. to live. Honolulu – More Hawaii homeowners than ever are falling behind on mortgage payments; 594 home foreclosures were logged in September. The figure from Realty-Trac is more than three times the number for September 2007. A spokesman said the increase pushes Hawaii from 34th in the nation for foreclosures to 20th.

Gettin Tight In Suburbia

Coeur d’Alene, Idaho – Sales of booze are up at state-run stores in northern Idaho. State Liquor Dispensary Superintendent Dyke Nally said people are avoiding costlier bar and restaurant tabs and doing more parties at home to save money. Personally, I am all for people staying home to imbibe and make a fool of themselves. And please remember, “Friends do not let friends drive drunk.” If they insist, then you should shave their eyebrows and put them on a bus to Chicago. It is a public service, and actually quite entertaining at the same time.  Speaking of buses? (Nice blend huh) Check this out.

Someone needs to remove her head from her you know what or head back home … We don’t need MORE twisted science.

Just when you thought it could not get any worse. In an election that has been fought on an astoundingly low cultural and intellectual level, with both candidates pretending that tax cuts can go like peaches and cream with the staggering new levels of federal deficit, and paltry charges being traded in petty ways, and with Joe the Plumber becoming the emblematic stupidity of the campaign, it didn’t seem possible that things could go any lower or get any dumber. But they did last Friday, when, at a speech in Pittsburgh, Gov. Sarah Palin denounced wasteful expenditure on fruit-fly research, adding for good xenophobic and anti-elitist measure that some of this research took place “in Paris, France” and winding up with a folksy “I kid you not.” […] More >>>

LOOKS LIKE THE SAME OLD CIRCUS TO ME

Turning Off The Juice

Concord New Hampshire . The state plans to turn off more than half of the 621 highway lights along Interstate 95 in the Portsmouth area and along Interstate 93 in Hooksett and Manchester. It said flipping the switches will save energy and about $250,000 a year. We did that last year, we turned the heat down, shut off the lights, we sat in the dark, my cup cake and I, froze our hinny’s off, and we saved twelve bucks.

Check The Garage

Fayetteville Arkansas – Police have arrested an armored car driver who had reported that the truck he drove was stolen by men who took him hostage. Police recovered nearly $500,000 from the residence of Brandon Whitehouse, 21, after he told investigators he acted alone. Whitehouse is charged with theft and filing a false police report. Kind of like the guy who got caught with fifteen pounds of smoke and claimed the C.I.A. planted it on him … that one didn’t fly either.

Better Living Thru Chemistry

San Francisco – An organic chemistry student at the University of California, Santa Cruz, pleaded no contest to heroin possession after police found drug-laced beer in his garage. Chaz Renzelman, 28, said he created the concoction by adding a handful of poppy pods to his homemade beer to improve the flavor. Renzelman was sentenced to a drug diversion program.

A Rude Awakening

A Pennsylvania woman was asleep in her bed last week when a large chunk of ice exploded thru the ceiling and hit her on the forehead. Mary Ann Foster, 66, was left with a large lump, and said that she could easily have been killed if the projectile hadn’t broken into pieces as it passed through the roof of her house. Authorities say the ice, which Foster saved most likely fell from a passing plane, but Foster isn’t so sure. “There is a little fish smell to it,” she says. “Which is weird.” And now this Tuesday, I have a totally new definition of the word “weird.”

Hard Times In Texas

Things are so bad of the seven gift shops in Crawford, Texas, that once sold George W. Bush souvenirs, three have gone broke and only one still maintains regular hours. Meanwhile the White House press corps released a national policy statement on the economy just yesterday. It read: “Save a little money each month and the end of the year, you will be surprised at how little you have.”

If you are not all that crazy about this (pardon the pun) then check out what this guy in LA says the “New America” is going to be like, little eye opener here for sure. Seven more days until the Obammer Rapture.

And finally … Melt Down In The Heart Land

Psychiatric hospitals nationwide are reporting that admissions have more than doubled due to people suffering extreme stress about home foreclosures, job losses, and plunging stock prices. It appears that the appropriate response to our current reality in America, is to simply just go insane.

Have to go!  I am late for group …

Short Lived …

SOON TO BE FORECLOSED … MAKE AN OFFER.

Saudi Arabia said that it will increase production of crude this year if the market needs it. But the vague pledge fell far short of what the U.S. hopes were, I guess Dubya wasn’t that convincing? Back on your knees boys! (There is a related story on page #28 but it is the same old crap) Saudi Arabia cannot keep pumping sweet crude at these levels, they are unsustainable and if they have not peaked, they will in the future.

They are not our saving grace by a long shot.

Remember “the good ol’ days” when your old hoopie would not hold $25 worth of fuel, and now $50 won’t even fill it up. Recently Okie City Oklahoma finished “dead last” (-50) among U.S. cities in a study about areas best equipped to cope with rising fuel prices. I suppose some government agent drove thru town on a Saturday and counted all the Okies sitting on their front porches, some of them wailing softly in the warm summer air.

Rhode Island has recently passed a bill that makes hassling people via Email or threatening people via the Internet a felony. You flame someone on the net in Rhode Island and you could be looking at some jail time. They are calling it “Cyber-Harassment” which is the new politically correct word for “nasty or downright rude.”

On July 1st it will cost more to get married in Vermont. Marriage licenses. which were previously $23 are going up in price, to $45 (almost doubled). Some of the new monies will be used to pay for Domestic Violence, which is certainly a new one, money collected for Heavenly Matrimony is now used to combat not so heavenly home lives.

Marriage is give and take, always has been. When I got married I learned how to laugh and how to cry. When I want to laugh, I just think of my sex life, when I want to cry, I just think of my sex life. And I saved $45 on top of it.  Can’t beat a deal like that.

Alabama’s Governor released the names and sources of $847,000 that he spent on his second inaugural. Must have been some party huh? Most of the money came from big corporations and lobbyists; I don’t suppose this will make a difference to the Republican Governor.

And I thought Oklahoma was bad.

Daddy can I have the jet? Before the tires have even cooled on the Big Bird, Connie now wants it to fly to Asia and Europe. One crew of home-wreckers gets home, and the second shift loads up and heads out, who says there isn’t any efficiency in Government these days.

She is going to Berlin, Tokyo, Seoul and China, her first stop is a Palestine donors conference in Berlin today. We are going to be helped out of our oil addiction by these people who seem to be pre-occupied in burning up a lot of it these days, flying all around the world.

Yesterday some bozo sent me a hurtful Email, don’t look for it in the comments section, I am still in control. I don’t think he would have done that, if he had known the facts. People of my breed (men) are sensitive animals.

Popular culture may paint men as the stronger sex, but from the moment a boy is born, his life is more likely than his sister’s to be cut short. Across national and cultural boundaries, men die an average of seven years earlier than women; the disparity in the United States is approximately five years. We don’t need the aggravation and/or irritation.

In a new book, Why Men Die First, Marianne Legato, a specialist in gender-specific medicine at Columbia University, explains: Men are genetically and biologically fragile to start with, and societal norms that encourage and even demand risky behavior by men put them at risk. Still, Legato told U.S. News, men and their families can push back. She listed numerous reasons why males die prematurely—and several actions they can take to prolong their time.

After reading this book this week, I believe I know what my own personal problem might be.

I wanted to be more feminist when I was in High School, but unfortunately, my boyfriend would not allow it. Now look where I am at? (Are you allowed to end a sentence with a preposition? Important questions and it isn’t even the middle of the week ..  What will I do – What will I do?)

AP is reporting that they have caught a female serial killer in Florida. Eight men. But she didn’t actually kill them outright. She gained access to their homes in the daytime when they were at work, and she hid all their remote control devices, so they killed themselves.

And they wonder why we die first?
