and allegedly let her daughter in the tanning bed — WHY is she STILL on the TV? Everytime I walk by a television she is freaking on there. Really, it’s not that amazing, or tragic, or anything else. There’s amazingly positive and tragic things going on in the world around us. Hunger, miracles, and everything in between. Focus on that breaking news.
Just when I thought the US Postal service was done for it rallies like Rocky did in the moments that counted.
I opened my door to check the position on Hurricane Sandy, tree limbs, floods I’m interested in seeing the end of the world according to the news reporter who is being swayed around like a loose fire hose.
I notice something very interesting, is that mail in my mailbox? Yes, and in the mailbox comes a DVD I bought off Amazon weeks ago. I love when that happens, just when my day seemed to have amounted to nothing I get a package delivered to me that was unexpected. Even over night packages are fun to receive, although a little preplanned happiness.
All government departments have been closed since early this morning so how did I end up with mail. The bus and metro rails have shut down completely and will not be open tomorrow either. Wall Street has closed business for the day due to inclement weather, something that has not been done in 27 years. Schools are closed and everyone from offices around the beltway have called it in.
Amazing! The US Post Office in the spite of its bad reputation, lazy employees, and countless hours in their long lines; truly lived up to their creed: Rain or shine, snow or sleet, we deliver your mail! Ben Franklin had it right when he invented the Post Office, our citizens are 1st no matter the cause and today that was solidified in my mind.
Just as a good snow day can make way for old movies, music, books, magazines, all the things I can never find time to do I get the treat of watching a movie that I have not seen since I was a teenager. What luck of all days!
Now if only my power will stay on so I can watch it.
…now not only will gays not have family rights, but your common law marriages that are oh so common have been stripped of their rights too.
Oh? You didn’t know that was included?
That’s why you don’t vote based on what some nice toothless hillbilly with a picket-style sign tells you instead of reading about it yourself.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is going to be in Hollywood trying to make it big in movies.
That’s not unusual for reality stars to pursue legit stardom. I mean, I expect him to fail hard like they tend to. He doesn’t really have a talent and he’s pretty much a cocky ass buttaface.
What I do find hysterical is his reasoning why this is the time to jump the Jersey Shore ship:
“It’s like Michael Jordan. There’s only so long you can keep winning them rings.”
Basically he’s saying that three seasons of a cable reality show equals a long successful record shattering athletic career. Wow.
…but where does it end?
Amazon has pulled the book “The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure: a Child-lover’s Code of Conduct” from their eBook selection. As soon as it was available, protests, boycotts, and other threats ensued. The book’s title accurately describes its contents.
When I first heard about this, I thought perhaps the title was just a poor taste attempt at a clever tongue-in-cheek eye-catching title. But no, it is a book written from a sympathetic point of view that goes as far as to advise pedophiles how to avoid the law. I won’t go on about how appalled I am that this book exists. Or how I wish all pedophiles were too illiterate or unmotivated to complete a book. I imagine _most_ people would agree with me.
One could argue freedom of speech protects this book and it should be available at the Amazon Marketplace. I believe in that freedom to write and speak about what is on ones mind whole-heartedly. The author utilized that freedom to create that work. He has the freedom to try to sell it. No one is banning his attempts to sell it. But a corporation is not obligated to further someone’s exposure, help them gain an audience, or propel them to make money.
And from a business perspective, it’s not intelligent for a company such as Amazon to carry something with that specific point of view. Why they thought they should carry it in the first place is beyond me. Whoever set that up probably lost their corner window office.
This isn’t the first time Amazon has encountered such controversy. One would think they would have taken steps to better screen items to be listed through their marketplace. Although, without any industry experience, I’m sure just about anyone could have easily weeded out such a bluntly titled book.
This won’t be the end of “The Pedophile’s Guide…” as I’m sure there are smaller internet-based companies that deal in controversial material who will be happy to carry the now famous book. What free publicity won’t do for someone.
If so, why aren’t they suing EVERYONE?
Officer Bubbles, as the entire internet now knows him, wants to sue YouTube for allowing cartoon parodies of his ridiculous harassment and arrest of a girl blowing bubbles. He’s even getting threats against his well being.
Um, those death threats aren’t because a rack of Adobe Flash owners made some cartoons. I’d venture to say it’s because you’re a douche bag who had a peaceful protester blowing bubbles arrested.
If your ego is so weak that you felt like the man locking up a little white girl with bubbles, then you deserve the sleepless nights as homemade cartoonery infuses your dreams.
Did he really expect to be a hero for being one of many cops who basically violated someone with a peaceful hippy spirit? First flowers in their hair, now bubbles in the air…what’s next? Large fluffy pillow fights?
I hope the Canadian police have extra backup to handle all that peace-promoting, green-encouraging, revolutionary love.
We all have seen the underbelly of society at the public access computers in the local library…okay, maybe, “some of us have seen”. Libraries are not as hopping as they used to be. Hello information super highway.
Anyway, there’s a range of characters availing themselves of the free internet access. Because libraries are public there are also the undesirable in the library. Not just homeless, some just sick. Internet access can be expensive…watch a little silent porn for free instead.
In Montgomery County, Maryland, a man pulled out his penis, then ejaculated on the arm of a Montgomery College student at a computer and ran away. He had a car to flee in, so he wasn’t homeless…just desperate.
I know the economy is rough, but really, why are you going to get your rocks off on (not even with) an unsuspecting person at a table. Maybe he should have gotten on an online dating website instead and then ejaculated on someone from Myspace later on that night.
Probably wouldn’t have the cops running his tags now. There’d just be some unattractive woman doing status updates about the guy that shot his load in her eye.
Tragedy struck yesterday as I sat in my car for 4 1/2 hours to go 20 miles…… I mean tragedy struck as a field trip bus from PA went off the sky ramp and crashed on to the spur of I-270 MD, killing the 66 year old bus driver and injuring several children and adults.
The bus from Wolf’s Bus Lines was returning to PA from a day at the National Zoo and the National Mall. It’s been released that Wolf’s has recently received a “satisfactory” rating for safety. That’s good? In school that was like a “C”. That’s comforting.
“Hey kids, let’s get on the C rated bus with an elderly driver from Pennsylvania on out of state roads”…sounds like a fun day to me!
