July 31, 2012

Yeah, because mouth breather sweet guy Lowell Turpin just had to see an image of Mitt Romney before popping his broad in the snout. Other than that, he's always a real gentlemen. Uh huh. Puhlease. This pinhead looks like he was born to cuff a woman around.

UK arrests man for “malicious tweets” to Olympic diver Tom Daley

July 31, 2012
By

I stay away from most of the fruhaha I see on Twitter. It reminds me of early blogging and some of the back and forth, though a bit worse. But this, I didn't know:

In Britain, tweeting messages considered menacing, offensive or indecent can lead to prosecution.

And a teenager to boot –...

For all the hope of a new wide-open media via the Internet, Google and now Twitter are demonstrating some concerning trends. The sad part is, it will only be an invitation for government to step in.

Still, this is priceless. I mean, really? What did Lauer major in in college, anyway –...

Awww, the presses knickers are twisted

July 31, 2012

Does the media really think the public sees anything below other than an annoying pack of screeching wanna-big-stories they couldn't care less about yelling at a war memorial? It can still ding Romney, not because of the facts on the ground, but because of the narrative the media is weaving around Romney's...

NY, NJ lawmakers want ammunition sales restricted

July 30, 2012
By

These days, more and more I see "photo ID" attached to everything but voting. It seems to be the only third rail where an ID is concerned. But if a photo ID discourages people from voting, how is it that it doesn't willfully discourage them from, oh, say buying ammunition, thereby...

A likely story. I suppose "dropping the soap" isn't quite an olympian enough expression?

I might buy it if he wasn't from Brazil. heh

Via news.yahoo.com. What a difference three years in office and at the golf course makes.

This billboard got a lot of media attention this weekend for its meme-style juxtaposition of President Obama and Aurora-shooter James Holmes. Styled like something you'd see on Reddit, the billboard features side-by-side pictures of the two men with the words...

Hmm.

Sharp spikes in the company’s donations – including a two-week period in 2011 when its employees and political action committee sent the lawmakers checks for their campaigns totaling nearly $50,000 – roughly coincided with five legislative milestones for the Abrams, including committee hearings and votes and the defense bill’s final...

Chris Chase at YahooSports couldn't be too obvious, could he? Don't get any on you, son, when you're drooling. No doubt Americans will still take Lolo Jones and some of the other fine American babes in this year's Olympic Games. Still, the Dutch field hockey team is nothing to...

So, Lolo Jones thinks Americans should do well in "da gun shooting competition". And the media appears to have an issue with it, why, exactly?

"Our program is tailored for the U.S. television audience.

I Tweeted an item by Nick Chiles at the Atlanta Black Star that was probably making the rounds. I had to read the cached copy. While not agreeing with the precise conclusion, I think there's something there if the interview went down as Chiles claims.
