Preparing For The Worst

The Boy Scout motto is, "Be prepared." The government's motto seems to be, "Be prepared... For a Fantastically Unrealistic Situation, But Not For Real Dangers."

NBC's Robert Windram explains: "Hurricane Greg"

Copping A Feel

Tyra and her boobielas

Tyra Banks, on her new talk show, proved her breasts are real:

After Banks asked the men in the audience to leave, Dr. Garth Fisher from ABC's "Extreme Makeover" performed a touch test and then the sonogram. He concluded: "Tyra Banks has natural breasts; there are no implants."
A touch test then a sonogram. Seems to me the sonogram alone would have been sufficient, no?
Not The Diamond Kind

$3 Billion For Ice... That Wasn't Needed

Sounds like somebody's trying too hard to make up for their failures. It's like the guy who cheats on his girlfriend and then buys her a diamond necklace to make up for it. Except the diamond necklace is cubic zirconia and it's been shipped to Maine.

Why is our government spending $4 dollars for a bag of ice that costs $1 dollar at a convenience store?? (and keep in mind, they're buying in bulk)

Meanwhile, our government is... BURNING TONS OF FOOD!!!!!!!! If only those starving kids in Africa could see us now. But they've already died of starvation.

Is this FEMA? Or The Khamer Rouge? Honestly, does our government ever THINK?????????????

Oink Oink

A great site about how our government wastes money. Remember the movie "Dave"? How Dave and his friend went through the budget, page by page, and identified all the wasteful stuff? Kevin Kline for President anybody?

Porky Pigs

When I looked, it said New Jersey had only spent $58 million in pork. Not too bad, compared to Alaska's $616,000,000+. And I don't even agree that "Beach Replenishment" and aid for the cranberry industry is pork. They go right to the heart of New Jersey's economy. What else is the Pine Barrens going to produce if they don't make cranberries? White trash?

And as a beach goer, at least I can see the results of the beach replenishment. The beach is a huge moneymaker for New Jersey. $15 mil is pennies compared to how much the local economy is helped. My guess is whoever listed this as pork isn't from Jersey.

That said, it's a great site. I don't think there are many Alaskans who will argue a bridge to nowhere is vital to the economy.

Weird World

Bison John McEnroe Loses Temper Once Again

President Bush isn't the only one caught looking ridiculous in a photo. Check out NBC's Pictures of the Weird. Lots of Giant Catfish, oddly.
