TODAY'S BUSHISM
"We've got -- John Biagas is with us. John, thank you for coming. Newport News, Virginia. Newport News, Virginia. John purchased his business in 1997. He took a gamble and said, I'm going to buy the business from the previous owner. I think he said they might have had a million dollars' worth of sales in 1997 -- they're over $14 million now. That's pretty good growth, isn't it, in a five-year period of time? " (2004-1997=?)

CLAPS, SLAPS, AND THE MIDDLE FINGER


Claps all around to the Leon County Circuit Court of Florida for ordering the public release of the names of 47,000 people listed as registered to vote but considered ineligible by the state. Florida's Department of State, former cabal of nutcase Congresswoman Katherine Harris, fought the release hard, unwilling to give up the names. The Miami Herald reported that at least 2100 names should not have been on the list due to receiving clemency, and many others may have never been convicted of a felony. A full analysis of the list is underway by many outlets, including CNN, the network which brought the suit.

Slaps ring off the cheeks of Coca-Cola marketers for their brilliant plan to place GPS chips and cell phones in drink cans...!!!....What the hell were they thinking? In an age when tweezers and scissors get impounded faster than Rasheed Wallace can smoke a joint, how did the security issues escape one of the most successful marketing teams ever? The military is right to worry about this, and maybe the marketing blunder will lead to more strict security measures for U.S. bases. But until then, Coke blokes should be giving each other Slaps, or at least drinking a little more C2 prior to marketing meetings.

My Middle Finger points in the direction of the IRS for granting breaks to "honest" criminals. In return for confessing involvement in an illegal tax shelter, the IRS is allowing the crooks who come forward to pay less of a financial penalty. These are not average joes, saving a few bucks for the kid's college. These guys had write-offs in the millions. Not income, write-offs. As hard as the IRS pushes Average Joe to pony up every penny, I expect more harsh treatment for those wealthy enough to use such high-class means of theft. Enough with the douchebaggery. Scrape out their wallets, I say, just like would have been done to me if I had not reported a couple of thousand bucks and been caught.

ANIMAL RIGHTS WATCH
Mount Vernon, New York needs people to adopt shelter dogs.

Sick bastards kill 100 Canadian Geese deemed a "nuisance."

Burned Tulsa dog doing better as two teenage suspects are taken into custody.

CANDIDATE OF THE DAY
Doug Haines looks to take a Georgia Congressional seat in November. As a lawyer, Haines established a non-profit law firm which concentrated on civil rights in environmental cases. Georgia Legal Watch was successful in suing the state to enforce anti-pollution laws which favor clean rivers. Haines has fought to remove the Confederate Flag from official uses, and has been a strong advocate for living wage legislation.
