inmatesrunningasylum (c2000-2050)

Does any other self-identified 'opinionator' exist who yells louder than Bill O'Reilly,is as stupidly insipid as Sean Hannity, as impervious to the truth as Chris Matthews,is as over-bearingly condescending as Nancy Grace,more narcissistic and smarmy than Geraldo Rivera,or more worthless than Connie Chung? Help me hold the collective 'media' feet to the fire, have fun playing w/ words and searching for great websites to blog. Door's open, come on in!!

Name:
Location: California, United States

I run on the beach and no one mistakes me for Bo Derek and I'm proud of that; I walk and explore in the redwood forests while moving banana slugs so they don't get squashed by traffic. Love art, esp.sculpture and/or anything with color;all over the map w/music. Talk back to the television and radio...I still haven't figured out how they get those tiny people into the TV/radio.

A Friendly Former First Lady Speaks Out

The world has been through a lot these past five years. And we all have our opinions of what has happened, is happening and will happen.

However, no one says it like Barbara Bush:

On March 18th, 2002, the day before the "war" began, Mrs. Bush talked with TV host Diane Sawyer on "Good Morning America." She told Sawyer she would watch
none of the war on TV. "Why should we hear about body bags and deaths and how many, what day it's gonna [sic] happen. It's not relevant. So why should I waste my beautiful mind on something like that?"

You rock, Barbara!!

This same compassionate, caring former first lady (and I use that word with deep intrepidation)appeared in
Houston, Texas days after the hurricane/flooding disaster along the Gulf Coast. While touring the Houston Astrodome she told a radio reporter, "So many of the people in the arena here, you know, were underprivileged anyway, so this is working very well for them."

Oh...the compassion, the compassion! Barbara, you make us proud~!

These quotes and so much more are found in the book by the esteemed Frank Rich. Entitled "The Greatest Story Ever Sold: The Decline and Fall of Truth from 9/11 to Katrina," Rich, a many-years New York Times reporter does what so many mainstream journalists have not. He's paid attention and reported the facts. Copies available wherever books are sold. Thanks, Frank.

Your Living Will

  I'm changing my living will right now!

Date: Fri, 19 Jan 2007 21:45:15 -0500

Your LIVING WILL

I, _________ , being of sound mind and body, do not wish to be kept alive indefinitely by artificial means. Under no circumstances should my fate be put in the hands of pinhead politicians who couldn't pass ninth-grade biology if their lives depended on it, or lawyers / doctors interested in simply running up the bills. If a reasonable amount of time passes and I fail to ask for at least one of the following:

Glass of wine
chocolate
Margarita
chocolate
Martini
Cold Beer
chocolate
Chicken fried steak
cream gravy
chocolate
Mexican food
chocolate
French fries
chocolate
Pizza
chocolate
ice cream
cup of tea
chocolate
Chocolate
Sex
Chocolate

It should be presumed that I won't ever get better. When such a determination is reached, I hereby instruct my appointed person and attending physicians to pull the plug, reel in the tubes and call it a day.

Fwd: The Best Web Sites From 2006

SIGN THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
The National Archives Web site contains a
place where you could actually place your signature
on the Declaration of Independence. With a click of a
mouse, you can choose a quill, type your name in a
box, and a script version of your name appears
near John Hancock. Then you can print the document
on a home computer.

Clinton/Lewinsky scandal? How about what

KEVIN NEELAN HOSTS: VERY FUNNY ADS
It plays like a slick TV show, but you push
the buttons. There are several categories,
I'm sure you'll see which one I hit first.
 
 
SURE, THERE ARE TOP 10 LISTS,
but the best collection is that which
is said to be stored by the Smithsonian.
 
 
GEOGRAPHY TEST: MIDDLE EAST, ETC.
Hint: Bahrain is very very tiny, just
north of smallish Qatar. Don't even think
about finding Yemen right away!
