      Republicans really think they can obfuscate and delay over gun regulation this time. It’s not going to work: “One of the most striking moments came early on with the second questioner, a local teacher. “As part of my teacher training this past week, I was asked to listen to popping sounds and then determine if … Continue reading ‘Do something!’

Not again! I’m sick of it OPEN THREAD

This is me...tomorrow. And I'm not looking forward to it.

OK, I’m screaming UNCLE!!  I’ve had enough of the white stuff; and now they’re calling for up to 12″ with 60mph winds here in the Eastern areas of PA. I mean really, did mother nature *have* to add that last component?  I’ll be out and about tomorrow in this mess.  Now, what is it I’m supposed to make sure I have in my car?

Ugh…It’s a slow news day but there’s plenty to talk about so this is an OPEN THREAD.  What are you sick of?

Wednesday News You Could Probably Do Without


Wow, didn’t see this coming:

Wall Street shifting political contributions to Republicans
Commercial banks and high-flying investment firms have shifted their political contributions toward Republicans in recent months amid harsh rhetoric from Democrats about fat bank profits, generous bonuses and stingy lending policies on Wall Street.

(I’m guessing the next media darling won’t be a Democrat either)



‘Terminator’ carp threatens Great Lakes

Environmentalists say Asian carp, an invasive species of food-guzzling fish, could cause an ecological disaster if it enters Lake Michigan

(Terminator governor wreaks havoc on Golden State)



First Superman comic sells for $1m

1938 edition of Action Comics No1 with cover showing superhero lifting car sets record for comic book sale

(What a rip-off. The original Superman couldn’t even fly)


New Full-Body Scanners Coming to Two Airports
The first of 150 full-body scanners planned for U.S. airports will be installed in Boston next week, officials said Tuesday.

(I might start flying again just to gross out the surly TSA buttsniffers)


Deputy shoots bear that charges him near Tahoe
A sheriff’s deputy at Lake Tahoe shot and killed a 600-pound black bear that rushed him after wildlife officials tried to flush the hibernating animal out from under a condominium.

(This is why I support the right to arm bears)


Former Prom King Now Living Anonymously Among Commoners
Sean Fowler, the man once revered throughout the halls of Barlow High School as prom’s one true king, has for the past several years lived a meager existence among the very peasants who used to tremble at the mere mention of his name, sources reported Monday.

Bearing none of his kingly habiliments, nor the regal air which at one time daunted all who crossed his path, the deposed King Fowler has dwelled in lowly anonymity since graduating in 2002.


I usually post more stories but it’s a really slow news day. What’s happening in your neck of the woods?
