“ROSEVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A driver whose SUV plunged into a Northern California creek after he was startled by his hands-free cell phone device escaped the sinking vehicle by blasting out the window with a handgun. The 28-year-old man, whose name wasn’t immediately available, is an armed security guard at Thunder Valley Casino, north of Sacramento. He sustained minor injuries in Sunday’s accident.
A spokesman for the Roseville Fire Department said the man was traveling northbound on Industrial Avenue in Roseville when the cell phone device activated. The driver was startled and veered off the road through the guardrail. The SUV landed in Pleasant Grove Creek.
He used his gun to shoot himself out, then flagged down a passerby”
That is quite amazing!
Finally, there has been some sanity in Uganda law because the law that sentences gay with HIV to death and life in prison for being gay has been scraped.
The Weekly Standard had a post stating that somebody wrote a book on Sarah Palin being persecuted by the mainstream media. My opinion is that Sarah Palin has not been persecuted but rather fairly criticized on character defects within her personality and a worldview that does not properly address the massive problems of that America has today such as the consequences of American imperialism, climate change, and massive inequity in society.
If the Republicans use her as a cheerleader or spokesperson for conservative causes, I conclude that is proper role for her. However, I do not respect her for being an expert on foreign and domestic policy and I think that she has very limited credentials in the areas of foreign and domestic policy. When she opens her mouth on policy matters, it just seems to be fodder for late-night TV shows and Olbermann’s “Worst Person in the World”. But I am a progressive liberal and so my comments on Palin would be probably considered to be biased.
“Cheney, who has emerged as a vocal defender of Bush administration policies since leaving the White House, said the intelligence obtained from harsh interrogation techniques had saved lives”
Will Dick Cheney ever learned that his methods never resulted in any real information? Will ever admit that the interrogation was done so it would justify the views of Bush Administration?
My opinion is that 09/11 made Bush and Cheney excessively paranoid about the real level of threats. Therefore, out of their fears, they resorted to torture because they needed their paranoid fears confirmed.
And Dick Cheney is very afraid to be brutally honest what happened there in 2001 and 2002. And I doubt that Cheney will never tell the truth because he is not capable telling the truth.
For him to tell the truth would be a miracle indeed.
Alabama Cancels High School Sporting Events and It May Future Cancellations for Weekend Trips in Juine
AL.com reports that the swine flue has made it to Alabama. The people in Alabama are very serious about this swine flu outbreak.
Very serious. Like postponing all high school as reported by ESPN. This thing is really starting get to be quite serious. I do not think this will be another 1918 but it will be quite serious and quite a few deaths will result.
For some reason, I have this fear that several events that I have planned in June such an AA convention in Palm Springs and Elysium might be cancelled because of this pandemic. If Alabama is cancelling high school sporting events, than my fears could be true.
Yesterday, I was watching Countdown and there was a discussion that the right-wing is going nuts. The guys at the Corner at the National Review are calm and rational right now. The National Review is a intellectual conservative journal that I read sometimes.
However, this blog is over the top and even makes Glen Beck and Bill O’Reilly look rational. Here is the excerpt
“Another traitorous attack on behalf of the seditious administration. The military is the enemy. He needs to demonize America’s much loved military. Destroy their reputation. It’s what the leftists do. It’s how they destroy the enemy. DISINFORMATION (Soviets were brilliant at this, as are the current EU statist thugs and their tools).
The Mohammedan president is going to gin up his constituency across the world while deploying our troops in a nonsensical military strategy in Afghanistan. Do you see what he is doing? He is going to decimate the military. The left did this in the 60s. They demonized the war and our troops along with it. This time, they demonized this war, but it did not work in besmirching our beloved soldiers. So now they have to make them look bad.
BRING HOME THE TROOPS!
Save our boys from a jihad sympathizing president. I said this in a previous thread — Obama wants trials. Obama wants to divert attention from his coup on the Constitution. Dear leader wants to control the images, the news you hear. He needs to distract the American people while he destroys America. They do not want tea parties, they do not want cognizance. They do not want you to think about what they are doing. Show trials. It is very much like terrorists who start a fire to distract first responders, so they can set off a bomb somewhere else.
Obama and his traitors will “start a fire” and hypnotize the American people with torture! cruelty! and put Bushchimphitler policy on trial with a special prosecutor, of course, while they overthrow the constitution, capitalism, freedom of speech, and enact gun control. That is what is happen”
This guy needs to sit down with a shrink and explain his delusional paranoia to a master psychologist. They have a delusional belief that Obama is going to take their guns and do all kinds of other horrible things. I just do not understand why these people have to resort to delusional beliefs just becaues a Dem won and he is a black man.
Do you have any explainations? Right now, I am loss for words over this paranoia.
There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it’s only a hundred billion. It’s less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.
Can imagine a trillion dollar debt? The size is this huge. How we are every going repay that? Don’t ask me that question? The solution is insane tax hikes and spending cuts. No Laffer Curve is going to solve this one. The Republicans just cannot give up the Laffler Curve but that is life
In Ann Coulter’s piece on Human Events, she states that Sarah Palin is the Conservative of the year. Ann Coulter writes that when McCain choosed Palin, McCain became a real “maverick”. To Coulter, a “Maverick” is somebody does not agree with the Editorial board of New York Times. A maverick for standing out among the crowd and drive liberals like me crazy.
To me, she deserves the award. She has a certain charm and wit about her. But she was one that brought out of the whackos. In real life, she just a normal conservative but her personality brought the real nutjobs out. On the Left Coast, we call them freaks.
So hats off to Sarah Palin because you deserve it
KNBC reports that texting while driving will be illegal starting in January 1, 2009. Do you know how hard it is text while driving?
It is difficult. Look, I tried to surfing the internet in traffic a few times. Way too hard. Trying to text or surf the internet while driving will make people riled up and make them honk on the horn. It also result in a accident
At least this one law that makes sense
