Anyone can be president of a Christian Action Group

Former state legislator Coy C. Privette – a Cabarrus County commissioner, retired Baptist minister and president of the Christian Action League of North Carolina – was charged Thursday with soliciting prostitution, authorities said.
Privette, 74, of Kannapolis, was charged with six counts of misdemeanor aiding and abetting prostitution by renting a hotel room and paying for sexual acts, according to State Bureau of Investigation Agent Kevin Canty.
74 and still want to get his freak on. Well ya gotta admire that. The whole setting a good example for others, well he'll need to work on that a bit I guess. I'll bet $5 that he asks for forgiveness quoting how Christ forgave, blah, blah, blah. That still don't make it right Coy.

What's wrong with America?

Bar exam was the test of time
Paulina Bandy couldn't fail the state bar exam again.
Not after she failed 13 times before.
Not after she had spent tens of thousands to attend law school. Not after she put her husband Jon Gomez through the ringer for so many years. Not after the debt she piled up forced her family to move into a 365-square-foot home.
This is exactly what's wrong with America. The very fact that she could take the test 14 times should tell you something about the profession itself. Would you hire a lawyer if you knew it took them 14 tries to pass the certifying exam?
And the stress she put her family through for 8 long years, how could she ever earn enough money working as a lawyer to pay the debt of the school back?
And here is the best part....she's not even going to practice law.

Pentagon: Hillary Boosts Enemy Propaganda

"Premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon and Somalia," Eric Edelman, the Defense Department's undersecretary for policy wrote.
Good work Hillary. What were you doing during the Vietnam War? Protesting I'll bet, just like your husband was.

$4000 a month for a Ford Explorer?

This 2006 Ford Explorer is costing the city of New York, $4,000 per month, assigned to and driven by a city employee working for the Department of Design and Construction or DDC. The DDC gives its engineers these vehicles to perform on-site inspections for construction projects across the city. During an audit by Comptroller Bill Thompson's office he uncovered that these SUVs were rarely used for business at all. According to work logs, contractor-provided vehicles were used primarily just for commuting.
Good work New York it doesn't even have leather. What could you lease for $4000 a month?
A Bentley Continental, that's what.

38 Years ago today, a giant leap for mankind

On July 20, 1969, half a billion people watched as Neil Armstrong became the first person to set foot on the moon.
"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind," he said, before imprinting his boot in the lunar dust.
And people have never really understood why we went to the moon in the first place, while they wait for their Hot Pocket to finish in the microwave, after they came home from their MRI after they fell off the ladder, which was made from aluminum alloys, while they hung pictures using their cordless drills in their homes that are protected by smoke detectors, which was delivered by a truck that uses efficient bearings and seals to keep fuel cost down, that picked up the ladder from a ship that just navigated around the typhoon they saw on the weather satellite images from space.
We seem to have some doubters out there....

Yanks back in it? Well if you mean 7 back, yeah

All of a sudden the AL East is getting interesting with the New York Yankees surging and the Boston Red Sox slumping. Just two weeks ago, Boston was cruising with a 12-game lead in the division. But after the Kansas City Royals beat the Red Sox 6-5 on Wednesday, and the Yankees beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-1, the lead is down to seven — the closest it's been since after games of May 12.
Okay, 7 games out is still a bunch. And 3-7 for the last ten is not a slump. 0-22 at the plate is a slump, just as Barry Bonds. Six wins in your last 24 is a slump, just ask Oakland. I can tell you with no doubt in my mind...the Yanks will not catch the Red Sox.

Marine convicted of conspiring to murder, kidnapping in Iraq death

A military jury Wednesday convicted a Marine of kidnapping and conspiring to murder an Iraqi man in a bungled attempt to abduct and kill a suspected insurgent in Hamdaniya.
Cpl. Trent Thomas was acquitted of premeditated murder, making a false official statement, housebreaking and larceny.
Thomas, 25, was the first of seven Marines and a Navy corpsman to go to trial in the killing, which squad members tried to cover up by planting a gun near the victim after he was gunned down in a ditch.
It's tough to make these kinds of decisions in combat. But it's worse to try and cover up poor leadership and lies.

Follow-up: RAF scrambled after diplomats expelled

Two RAF fighter jets were scrambled on Tuesday to intercept two Russian planes on course for British airspace, it emerged yesterday. The incident marked the latest escalation of tensions in the standoff between London and Moscow.
So Russia was willing to sacrifice two bombers over this? Because you know they didn't stand a chance against two Tornadoes. That's an odd move, Tu95s can't be cheap. All in all I think that would have been a bad move by Russia.

I had this idea back in 1986

Showing skin is giving one start-up company a boost in business. Tiger Time Lawn Care has been on the books for only three months but their offer to cut lawns in bikinis is already catching on.
For the record, I had this idea in 1986, sadly back then all the girls you would want to dress in a bikini and mow your lawn had jobs at TG&Y or JC Penney's. Video link.

Chrysler scraps plans for new Imperial luxury car

DETROIT (Reuters) - Chrysler Group has scrapped plans for a luxury sedan that would have represented a bigger, heavier and less-fuel-efficient version of its Chrysler 300C, citing high gasoline prices and tougher fuel economy standards.
Chrysler said on Wednesday that it was dropping production plans for the Imperial, a high-riding luxury sedan that prompted comparisons with the Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Really? you want us to believe that Chrysler could build and SELL a car that could be compared to a Rolls-Royce Phantom...bwhahahahahahahahaha
Funny headline about this on,
Chrysler dumps plans to build the 6000-SUX. Oh man, some days I wonder if people just try to make shit up just to see if we will reprint it.

Turkey Bombards Northern Iraq

The Iraqi government said Turkish artillery and warplanes bombarded areas of northern Iraq on Wednesday and called on Turkey to stop military operations and resolve the conflict diplomatically. The claim occurred amid rising tension and Turkish threats to strike bases of the Kurdistan Workers Party or PKK, which has been launching attacks against targets in Turkey from sanctuaries in Iraq. Col. Hussein Kamal said about 250 shells were fired into Iraq from Turkey. He added that there were no casualties on the Iraqi side of the border.
This is another fine example of a line drawn for a map that doesn't reflect the people living in the actual area. I wonder how much this could destabilize....nevermind, the Iraqi government won't even notice the problems, comparatively. And before you think, "Oh, Turkey is bullying the PKK." Remember that PKK stands for Kurdistan Workers Party. Which you should translate to damn dirty communists.

Adios Dante, break a leg somewhere else

Daunte Culpepper finally has what he asked the Miami Dolphins for weeks ago — a chance to start over with a new team. Miami released the former Pro Bowl quarterback Tuesday, wrapping up a contentious split between player and team. The move came one day before a breach-of-contract grievance filed by the NFL Players Association on Culpepper's behalf against the Dolphins was scheduled to be heard, and after Miami unsuccessfully tried for weeks to trade the 30-year-old.
It's not known if they came close to moving him in a trade; Culpepper vowed to block any such moves, saying he wouldn't accommodate the Dolphins by agreeing to a new contract. His existing deal, which would have paid him $51.5 million through 2013, made it nearly impossible for Miami to find a team to trade with.
Good luck Daunte. I hate to break it to you this way aren't worth your current contract. I hope a team with a great offensive line gets you, you'll need all the time you can get in the pocket.

Top al-Qaida in Iraq figure captured

The U.S. command said Wednesday the highest-ranking Iraqi in the leadership of al-Qaida in Iraq has been arrested, adding that information from him indicates the group's foreign-based leadership wields considerable influence over the Iraqi chapter. Khaled Abdul-Fattah Dawoud Mahmoud al-Mashhadani, also known as Abu Shahid, was captured in Mosul on July 4, said Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner, a military spokesman.
Good work boys. It's good to report some good news coming out of Iraq.

Michael Vick, Dog Fighter, Indicted

NFL star Michael Vick was indicted by a federal grand jury Tuesday on charges of sponsoring a dogfighting operation so grisly the losers either died in the pit or sometimes were electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback and three others were charged with competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across state lines. If convicted, Vick and the others — Purnell A. Peace, Quanis L. Phillips and Tony Taylor — could face up to six years in prison, $350,000 in fines and restitution.
Dog fighting. Why would someone risk a lucrative career in the NFL for illegal activity like that? I just don't understand some people.

Wyo. shooting suspect commits suicide

LARAMIE, Wyo. - A tipster on horseback led authorities to the remote hideout of a former military sniper accused of fatally shooting his wife while she sang at a Cheyenne night club. As searchers closed in, David Munis, 36, shot himself in the chest, authorities said. Munis was found at a small camping trailer about five miles outside the search area, Albany County Sheriff's Lt. Michael Garcia said.
Munis' estranged wife, Robin Munis, 40, was singing with a classic-rock and country group at the Old Chicago restaurant and bar in Cheyenne early Saturday when a bullet pierced a plate glass door and hit her in the head, killing her.
Shot himself in the chest? What a puss. Did he have that high an opinion of his looks? Link has video. I love how the media blows these SNIPER stories way out of proportion. 100 yards, with a scoped rifle. As I was telling Fritz yesterday, I could make that shot recovering from a 3 day drunk at a hundred yards with a scoped rifle, every time. And all the training I ever received was Basic Marksmanship from the Marine Corps and we didn't have any scopes.

Hitman at the Hilton hotel

He sought to shoot exiled tycoon Boris Berezovsky — who has called for the violent overthrow of Russian president Vladimir Putin — in the back of the head. A RUSSIAN hitman planned to execute an outspoken “enemy of Moscow” at the Hilton Hotel on London’s Park Lane, The Sun can reveal.
Real international intrigue. MI5 and MI6 caught the hit man before he could execute. And bonus, the hit man had a child with him. Can you imagine the look on his teacher's face when she asks, "How was your summer?"

Ferris Bueller and the secret to life

everything you need to know about life is contained in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. As the school secretary points out, "the sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore Ferris. They think he's a righteous dude."
I'd have to agree with most of this. Seldom are things put so simply.

Two-finger salute

FURY erupted last night after Sir Winston Churchill was axed from school history lessons. Britain’s cigar-chomping World War Two PM — famed for his two-finger victory salute — was removed from a list of figures secondary school children must learn about.
Churchill — voted the greatest ever Briton — goes off the required lessons list, along with Hitler, Gandhi, Stalin and Martin Luther King.
Well, how about that fine English education? Just 10 short years from now you'll meet a segment of the population that will respond when asked about Winston Churchill, "ummm, he's that dude in that war."

Girl in famous picture speaks

NEWPORT BEACH - For years, Kim Phuc had been running away from the famous photograph. It defined her, trapped her – preserved her in an unforgiving world of pain, anger and sadness.
It has taken decades for Phuc, now 43, to arrive at the peaceful place she is today – a journey she shares at churches and schools worldwide.
You see these famous photos, and you wonder whatever happened to the people in them. It's good to know at least one person had a good life after the tragedy of that war.

Down today

Sorry for no posts today.
I'm home with a headache and backache. Headache is alergies. Backache is from being really stupid on a home repair project this weekend.
Couldn't muster the energy to post up the news.
I'll be better tomorrow.
So for now enjoy this God Bless America.
