Bush Bans Terrorism

Bush Signs Bill Making Terrorism Illegal
WASHINGTON (CAP) – In a bold yet somewhat overdue move that is already having widespread ramifications in the war on terror, President Bush has signed into law a bill that makes terrorism illegal in the United States. The measure marks the first of its kind and is expected to be challenged in court.
“Heh, take that, terrorists,” said President Bush as he carefully formed what appeared to be a letter ‘G’ during the signing ceremony in the Oval Office. “Let’s see you do something now – I dare ya. No, wait, I double dare ya. Heh.”
The new law makes it a crime to be involved in terrorist activities on American soil, and is punishable by up to 30 days in jail and up to a $1,500 fine. Pundits on both sides of the political aisle are applauding the move as the missing link that could put an end to the war on terror.
“We spend millions in homeland security, upgrade and update the color threat levels, yet never take the simple step of just making terrorism illegal,” noted CAP News political analyst Tom Brashcott. “Been a long time coming, but I firmly believe America is now a safer place.”
In less than 24 hours since the law went into effect, Homeland Security officials say they’re seeing a huge drop in the amount of chatter between sleeper cells in the United States. Early reports are that embedded terrorists are packing up and leaving the country by the hundreds, if not thousands.
“Listen, I am a religious zealot, not a criminal,” said terrorist Mohmar il-Abdullah as he boarded a plane at Boston’s Logan Airport, bound for Cairo, Egypt. “Your government obviously is caring about you very much. I will go now, bye-bye.”
Despite the positive response to the law thus far, the American Civil Liberties Union has already filed a lawsuit in federal court, alleging that it violates the U.S. Constitution. According to court documents obtained by CAP News, the lawsuit was filed on behalf of all terrorists residing in the continental U.S.
“Hate the hate, not the haters,” said Rev. Jesse Jackson, who acknowledged that he is taking up the terrorists’ cause. “I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – you cannot condemn if you’re not one of them.”
President Bush’s approval rating spiked to 11% following word of the new law.

The Slow Death of an American Institution

The slow death of an American institution

Grange Halls are common landmarks in America’s rural communities. But what is a “Grange”? The Order of Patrons of Husbandry is a fraternal agricultural organization, but it’s not just a social group for farmers; Grange lobbying fought railroad monopolies and led to Rural Free Delivery, the Farm Credit System, and other “progressive legislation that will benefit U.S. agriculture, rural America, and the nation in general”. But after 140 years, the Grange is fading away.

The History of Beer is Space

This one is for all the drunk astronauts:

From New Scientist:
Graduate student Kirsten Sterrett at the University of Colorado in the US wrote a thesis on fermentation in space, with support from US beer behemoth Coors. She sent a miniature brewing kit into orbit aboard a space shuttle several years ago and produced a few sips of beer. She later sampled the space brew, but because of chemicals in and near it from her analysis, it didn’t taste great by the time she tried it…
Unfortunately for thirsty astronauts, beer is poorly suited to space consumption because of the gas it includes. Without gravity to draw liquids to the bottoms of their stomachs, leaving gases at the top, astronauts tend to produce wet burps.
“That’s one of the reasons why we don’t have carbonated beverages on the space menu,” NASA spokesperson William Jeffs told New Scientist.

Nice Couple Arrested and Terrorized for Flying US Flag Upside Down

Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet
Tuesday, July 31, 2007
A North Carolina couple who were terrorized by a police officer who had recently returned from Iraq are now fighting back, after sheriff’s deputy Brian Scarborough broke into their house, assaulted them and then arrested the Kuhns for the crime of flying an upside down U.S. flag.
Mark and Deborah Kuhn of Asheville, North Carolina made headlines last week when they were arrested for flying an upside down U.S. flag, a commonly recognized sign of distress, in their backyard, after police claimed they were violating a statute for “desecration of the flag”.
As is supported by the United States Flag Code as well as a similar incident in 2001, flying the flag upside down is not a mark of disrespect, and in fact is considered by many to be the highest form of patriotism.
However, since 9/11 there have been several cases where individuals have been harassed, intimidated and even arrested for inverting the flag, by those who confuse a love of government with a love of country.

Why Corporate Personhood Should Be Abolished

from DailyKos.com

Should we abolish corporate personhood?
by Eternal Hope
Mon Jul 30, 2007 at 07:30:37 PM PDT
The New Deal serves as a massive check against corporate abuse of power. But the fact of the matter is that time and time again, the rules are stacked against the people by the powerful interests thanks to the fact of corporate personhood. Under the law, corporations have special rights that you or I cannot have so that they can make the kinds of money that any of us ever dream of. They control our lives, they bust unions, they send our jobs overseas, and they seek to bring in “guest workers” as second-class citizens. They seek to suppress wages so that if we make too much, they can get rid of us and replace us with someone who is willing to work for less.
* Eternal Hope’s diary :: ::
*
I suggest that the people who run businesses work and play by the rules that the rest of us play by — which means that I suggest that we end special rights for corporations and the corporate elites. And the way that they exploit our lives for profits, capitalizing on human suffering and the fact that we must get from Point A to Point B, means that this may be the time to say enough is enough.
However, any attempts to level the playing field have to be looked at carefully, so that we can see the ramifications. This is not by any means the last word on the attempt to level the playing field, but the first attempt.
Here are some of the benefits of incorporation that would go by the wayside:
Protection of personal assets. Safeguarding personal assets against the claims of creditors and lawsuits. Sole proprietors and general partners in a partnership are personally and jointly responsible for all the liabilities of a business such as loans, accounts payable, and legal judgements. In a corporation, however, stockholders, directors and officers typically are not liable for their company’s debts and obligations. They are limited in liability to the amount they have invested in the corporation (eg: If $100 in stock was purchased, no more than $100 can be lost). Corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLCs) may also hold personal assets like houses, cars or boats. If one is personally involved in a lawsuit or bankruptcy, these assets may be protected. A creditor of the owner of a corporation or LLC cannot seize the assets of the company; however, they can seize their ownership shares in the corporation, as that is considered a personal asset.
That means that if I run myself into debt, I can protect myself by putting all my assets under the control of the company so that I can immunize myself from collection efforts. I can game the system in a way that others can’t.

10 Tips to Stay Broke


I got this from Consumerist.com

We know you don’t really like having money. That’s why we’ve put together these 10 tips that will help ensure you never will:
1) Make Shopping Your Hobby.
Nothing to do on a Tuesday night? Go to the store. Doesn’t matter which one. Just go and bring your credit card. Better yet, open a store credit card and buy a bunch of stuff. Hey! You saved 10%! Sure, you didn’t actually know you “needed” this stuff until you saw it at the store, but its just so cute.
2) Don’t Have a Budget.
Look, you know about how much money you make and about how much you spend on basic costs. Then you need your “play money.” After that, if there’s anything left, it can sit in your non-interest bearing checking account until next month. As long as there is something in there, you’re doing well.
Sure, you overdraft now and then, but big deal. It doesn’t happen every day.
3) Impress Your Friends By Buying Them Expensive Stuff You Can’t Afford.
If Betty registers a $10,000 silver platter for her wedding… you should get it for her. Yeah, so you went in to debt? Betty is your best friend . She’d do the same for you. What? You don’t want to look cheap !
4) Go Grocery Shopping When You’re Hungry, With No List.
Don’t plan you meals. Always eat “whatever you feel like.” Go shopping when you’re really hungry and make sure to buy everything that looks yummy!Mmmm! Lobster! Another good tip is to go shopping on “sample day” and buy everything you try. Smoked Gouda! Caviar! Little pigs in a blanket! Pizza rolls! Yay!
5) Go To The Little ATM At The Gas Station. A Lot.
It’s only 1.50, get over it. The bank is sooooo far away. Just get money wherever it’s convenient. Who cares about the fees? Same goes for overdraft fees and other banking fees. It’s not that big of a deal.
6) Buy Lots and Lots of “Comfort Items” Without Considering The Cost.
You need your latte. You need your new shoes. You need Madden 08. You need a blu-ray player. You need cable. You need an iPhone. You need more DVDs. You need to buy a book instead of going to the library. You need to play a MMORPG . You need 150 shades of lipstick. You need to see every movie that comes out, then buy the poster and an action figure. You need to go to every concert. You need to buy the T-shirt. You need lots of brand new clothes every month.
You need these things to be happy. If you don’t have each and every single one of them you will be so depressed that you may actually die. Don’t take the risk.
7) Don’t Open A High Interest Savings Account
High-interest savings accounts are for old people. You don’t need to save yet. Or at all. You have that, you know, plan thing at work where they save money for you. And you can use your credit cards for any emergencies that might come up. So you’ll be OK.
8) Run Up Lots Of Credit Card Debt
Don’t worry, you’ll pay it off at some point. When? Um. When you make more money than you do now. Duh. Besides, if the credit card company says you can afford to take out $17,000 at 18% they must know what they’re talking about, right? They don’t want to lose their money!
9) Let Yourself Go.
Don’t work out or change the oil in your car. If you get sick, take half the medicine, that way you’ll get sick again really quickly and get to spend more on medical bills. Take crappy care of your car and your house so that when something breaks it costs a ton of money to fix. Also, buy a gas guzzling car and leave your windows open with the air conditioning on. Don’t brush your teeth or eat healthful foods. Make sure to buy lots of things that are very expensive to maintain, then neglect them. Who cares?
10) Buy Your Children Whatever They Want
Your kid can’t go to school unless he/she is dressed in all the latest fashions. Also, he/she must have better toys than other children or you are a bad parent. Disappointment is bad for children. If children don’t get everything they want, it makes them bad at math. True story. Also, if you don’t sign your kid up for tons and tons of expensive classes and activities, he/she will fail at life and live under a bridge. And it will be your fault.

The Return of the Delorian?

From Engaget.com

We’re certainly not holding our collective breath on this one, but according to an article put out by the Los Angeles Times, the cult classic DeLorean automobile just might be resurrected. Reportedly, the DeLorean Motor Company” is laying plans to bring the car back into limited production, and while it’d be easy to brush aside this whimsical scheme, 2007 certainly has been good to vintage automobiles made new. Apparently, the supply of cars suitable for rebuilding is quickly dwindling, and if everything pans out, DMC could possibly produce “20 or so cars a year.” Of course, there’s simply no way to tell how legitimate these expectations are, but here’s to hoping for a brand new gull-winged whip in the not-too-distant future.
