October 7, 2011 at 7:49 pm

MSNBC is a great source for “weird news”. The latest story is about a man who stole jewelry from a jewelry store while he was on trial for get this, robbery. I don’t understand why people keep doing this.

Maybe that is what happens when you get older and wiser… you look at the world and go Why?


Blue collar man buys his own island!!!

October 5, 2011 at 4:17 pm

A man in New York City bought a deserted island just off the coast from his home for $160,000.

Before he bought the island, which is called “Rat Island”, he was just a lowly sanitation worker. I’m inspired to see a hardworking blue collar type like me make his dreams come true.

This should remind us all that the American Dream is not dead. I hope that I can buy an island of my own someday. Read more →→→


The Obama Tax Hikes May Be Unfair To Millionaires

September 27, 2011 at 3:36 pm

Everybody knows that the United States owes a lot of money to the Chinese.

President Barack Obama’s plan is to raise that money without having to cut spending by increasing taxes on millionaires and other super-wealthy Americans.

This seems like a fine idea at first, especially to those of us in Preble, who are regular everyday hardworking people and wouldn’t be affected by the taxes at all. But at the same time, is it possible that we’re giving millionaires the “short end of the stick”? Read more →→→

In case you haven’t been “Palin’” attention to the media these past couple days, the entertainment blogs are all a- “Twitter” about Bristol Palin’s recent run in with a drunk person in a bar. In the video of the incident, which we won’t post because of some “PG-13” language, the budding starlet gets very upset when a man shouts mean things about her mother.

In the heat of the moment, Bristol said some off-color words about the man’s sexual orientation. Now people are accusing her of being a “homophobe.” Let’s hear Bristol’s side of the story, after the jump! Read more →→→


CIA Keeps America Safe For Another Day

September 12, 2011 at 4:13 pm

As you may know, yesterday was the tenth anniversary of the September 11th attacks on America. It was a day that was also meaningful for another reason:

Throughout the past week, we have heard reports of suspicious “chatter” coming out of Pakistan, indicating that an Al Qaeda attack could be in store on this day of remembrance. And yet, yesterday was another quiet day throughout the country. Every single one of the numerous plots against America was foiled by the hard work and patriotism of the CIA.

Wherever you live in this great nation, if you see a CIA officer in your local grocery store or church, be sure to thank them for their incredible contributions in making us all safe. God bless America.
