Confiscated Airport items given to homeless. Duh. Stupid as Duct Tape!


Remember back in 2003 when Tom Ridge (Homeland Security Secretary) suggested that Americans buy plastic sheeting and duct tape to protect them from a biological or chemical attack? First of all, it would be totally useless to try to seal yourself off from chemicals or toxins using duct tape. Second, it shows just how clueless this administration is. So, how do they top that? Well, now that you can't bring liquids or gels onto planes because they may be bombs, the Bush administration has decided on the best way to properly dispose of the potentially harmful liquids and gels. They're giving them to homeless people! This is a true story (Credit to www.Americablog.com for the scoop.) These potentially explosive & poisonous shampoos, body gels, deodorants and mascaras are not even being checked to see if they are in fact bombs. So if one of the prohibited items is a bomb, a homeless person or social worker will be the first to know (and die). But they're homeless, so what the hell. By the way, just watched that sahow on FX called 30 days and the guy was living on minimum wage for 30 days and he caught hell. Everybody should watch that episode. It was really enlightening. I'm blogging while listening to the a police scanner via the internet. It's pretty tight. Till next time.

Lieberman in Big Touble! The Bush kiss was too much!


Smooches!!! (This Photo has not been doctored in any way. Bush kisses Lieberman on the cheek.) In recent months I have really grown to dislike Joe Lieberman. His staunch support of Bush on the War in Iraq was the turning point. And let's remember, he was one harshest critics of Clinton when he lied about his affair, but lets Bush lie about a war that gets people killed. Dead. I can't wait until next Tuesday so we can throw the bum out. He says he's going to run as an independent if he fails to win the democratic nomination. If he loses he should accept the fact that the voters have spoken and take his ass home.


"Lamont, a political novice, has support from 54 percent of likely Democratic voters in the Quinnipiac University poll, while Lieberman has support from 41 percent of voters. A similar survey July 20 showed Lamont with a slight advantage for the first time in the campaign."Senator Lieberman's campaign bus seems to be stuck in reverse," poll director Douglas Schwartz said. "Despite visits from former President Bill Clinton and other big-name Democrats, Lieberman has not been able to stem the tide to Lamont."

So, I'm hoping for a Lamont victory so we can add one more "Real" Democrat to the senate.
