Bullshit Arrest

leave a comment »

Some guy could face jail time for writing “BULL (expletive) MONEY GRAB” on the memo line of a check he sent to pay for a parking fine.

Crap.

Every once in a while I write something stupid on my check’s memo line. Most of the time if I’m paying my local quarterly tax it’s usually something dumb like, “Making sure the Man doesn’t throw me in jail,” but there have been a few instances when I’ve been quite rude, especially when I was paying for some bullshit fee, service charge or hidden cost I was hit with. It’s times like this when I look back on and realize if I ever decide to run for public office I wouldn’t last more than a week in the public spotlight.

Should The DH Be A Full-Time All-Star Position?

leave a comment »

Over at another blog there was a discussion that the designated hitter position should be kept for All-Star games. Having spent about 4-5 seconds thinking about this topic, I think the DH rule should be used depending on where the All-Star game is being held. If the game is being played in an American League field, use the extra bat. If the game is held on a field from the Senior Circuit, make the pitchers earn their keep. Personally, I think the Designated Hitter is nothing more than a way to keep beefy ballplayers with bad knees from having to earn their paychecks out in the field, but that’s what you get with unions. While I’m on this subject, one thing that has to go is this hippie “the winning league at the All-Star game gets home-field advantage in the World Series.” All-Star games are meant to be an exhibition. If you really don’t want to have one of these contests run out of pitchers in extra innings, then don’t feel obligated to play every person on your roster within the course of nine innings.

Attacking The NY Slimes

leave a comment »

I’ll tell you what. After listening to W. tear into the N.Y. Slimes for publishing a program that monitors international banking transactions, I wish he got pissed off every time he spoke in public.

President Bush on Monday criticized newspapers for exposing a secret U.S. government program that monitors international banking transactions, calling the disclosures a “disgraceful” act that could assist terrorists.

Bush made his remarks during a White House meeting with organizations that support the war in Iraq, echoing comments Friday from Vice President Dick Cheney and conservative commentators. They had condemned the reports last week in the Los Angeles Times, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and other media outlets.

I can’t wait for the next terrorist attack to hit this country, if only to hear the Slimes and other Medium-Large Media allies wonder why the government didn’t do more to gather up intel that could have prevented the attack. Better yet, hopefully Abdul will blow himself up inside the Gray Lady’s headquarters.

Dropping The Democrat, If In Name Only

leave a comment »

The Johnstown Tribune-Democrat, in the midst of a design change, might drop the “Democrat” from its name.

Johnstown’s newspaper has been officially called The Tribune-Democrat for decades, but that name could be trimmed to simply The Tribune as part of a new design being introduced next week.

Some readers and employees object to dropping the word “Democrat” from the masthead, saying the possible change smacks of politics, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Sunday.

In a recent internal memo, publisher Chris Voccio listed several reasons for changing the name, including an effort to avoid any appearance of political party affiliation.

There has been confusion over the paper’s name for years, with many people calling it The Tribune out of habit or as a kind of shorthand, he said.

The official name of the newspaper has been The Tribune-Democrat since 1952, when the afternoon Tribune merged with the morning Democrat. The two papers were previously competitors.

Voccio downplayed the name change Friday, saying it was “really not a political thing,” and that the paper would be returning to its “ancestral name” by dropping the word “Democrat.”

A decision about the name will be made this week. The new design is scheduled to be unveiled next Sunday.

Hopefully, this won’t be the only Democrat in the region dropped this year -– Johnstown, Pa., is home to John Murtha.

In A Rush For An Erection

leave a comment »

Rush, Rush, Rush, what am I ever going to do with you? I guess I should be grateful that you weren’t caught with Oxycontin.

Rush Limbaugh could see a deal with prosecutors in a long-running prescription fraud case collapse after authorities found a bottle of Viagra in his bag at Palm Beach International Airport. The prescription was not in his name.

Limbaugh was detained for more than three hours Monday at the airport after returning from a vacation in the Dominican Republic. Customs officials found the Viagra in his luggage but his name was not on the prescription, said Paul Miller, a spokesman for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Oh well, I might as well get this one out of the way: “I always knew he was a member of the hard Right, but this is taking it a bit too far.”
