The devastation of the tornado(s) damage in Alabama and Mississippi, can be seen here provided by The Boston Globe. There are 23 photos, and it is unbelievable the destruction that occurred from the storms.

Eugene Robinson has wrote an essay in Truthout, about the birtherism crap. He makes some very good points, and I agree, that it still bothers quite a few people that Obama is president. Obama won the 2008 election hands down, so the birther morons should get a life.
Sarah Palin the world renown economist, said on Fox News (where else), “Hell No” to raising the debt ceiling. Of course she went on and on and…well you get the picture.
Media Matters reports that Fox News has promoted the ‘birther myth’ in 52 segments. Never once did they come out and say that it was all bunk. My emphasis.

What would it be like to drive on an interstate highway, made of glass and solar? There’s a small company in highway which is working on the concept. I think it has potential, but would it cost to build one, is the big question.

Here’s a great perspective on why Obama shouldn’t have shown his birth certificate.
Watch Lawrence O’Donnell, give Orly Taitz the heave ho on his show last night, as she goes off her rocket, as she refused to answer one simple question about Obama’s birth certificate.

Orly Taitz, the queen of birther, is at it again, saying she has proof that Obama only went to Columbia University for only one year, which is a lie. She also wants to know how he got into Harvard.
What’s next with her, Donald Trump and the other loose cannons; proof that he has a driver’s license, lived in Chicago? It’s totally insane with these people.

Paul Ryan can take the heat at his ‘town hall meetings’ as he slipped out another door after the meeting was over, because the car he came in was surrounded by angry protesters. He also got upset, because the people in the hall, were getting loud, and he asked them to tone it down, or else they can leave. But it was alright when the Democrats were being heckled and shouted down, by the Tea Party jerks.

The White House has announced that they will release President Barack Obama’s long form birth certificate today.
What will the Tea Party and the ‘birther nuts’ do now? I can imagine Fox News will have asinine things to say about it.

It will be interesting to see if the NFL gets a stay from the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals, in order to keep the players locked out. If not, then the NFL will have to start setting rules concerning free agents, and letting players to see trainers etc., etc.

Here’s a shock: The most socialist state in the nation is W. Virginia, and Alaska is #2, Alabama #3 and Vermont is #4. Nevada finished dead last. The article in Mainstreet explains how the rankings come about, from the top 10, and the bottom 10.

The movie Atlas Shrugged, based on the book by Ayn Rand, is not attracting the movie goers, like the Tea Party was hoping it would. Quite a few movie reviewers have already panned it as more or less a dull, boring film.
Read the article and watch Steven Colbert give his take on Ayn Rand. Guaranteed to make you laugh.

Harvard graduate and former Cincinnati Bengals punter/receiver Pat McInally, is now coaching high school football in Southern California, and is doing it without pay.
McInally scored a 50 on the Wonderlic intelligence test, prior to the 1975 NFL draft, and no other football player has done it.
Whether your a football fan or not, it is an interesting story.

This is an out rage, the 9/11 first responders have to be screened as possible terrorists, against the Department of Homeland Security Terrorism Watch List. How low is this.

Andrew Breitbart keeps going around in circles and denials, while on Martin Bashir on MSNBC. Its 13 plus minutes, of Breitbart beating around the bush, and his so-called journalistic talents suck.

According an article in AlterNet, the Koch Bros, had packets given to all their employees on who to vote for, in the 2010 elections. 50,000 employees were given the packets. Also in the article, the brothers would like to see the minimum wage disappear. Nothing is beneath these guys. They’ll do just about anything to have it their own way.

Be warned. Andrew Breitbart throws a lot of bull shit, when he appeared on MSNBC. He calls himself the Upton Sinclair of journalism, and Dylan Ratigan sucks it right up.
