A few years ago on a drive to Gettysburg, I decided to try and find Camp David, and while I could guess at the location, I wasn\'t really certain.  When I got home, I went to mapquest satellite photos thinking I could find it by spotting the blocked out area.  Was I ever surprised to not only spot it, but to find the view unobstructed.  I was just looking for something else on google earth and it turned out to be nearby.  I'm absolutely amazed at the level of detail that they permit.

These pics were taken from an airplane and you have to guess where the location is.

You correctly answered 16 out of 16. You score is 100%

This is a letter accidently sent home with 2nd grade students in Litchfield Park Az. The princpal was venting. Now some parents are fuming. I'm laughing!

 Here's a solution to  all the controversy over full-body scanners. Have a booth that you can step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on you.
It would be a  win-win for everyone, and there would be none of this crap about racial profiling!

Robert Byrd and Reconciliation

Byrd touches himself, 

Watch why he stopped Clinton's Healthcare reconciliation attempt.

So, will the senate's Grand Kleegle stop Obamacare reconciliation?   Why no, because this time the deficit is being reduced. 
I believed then, as now, that the Senate should debate the health reform bill under regular rules, which it did. The result of that debate was the passing of a comprehensive health care reform bill in the Senate by a 60-vote supermajority.

I continue to support the budget reconciliation process for deficit reduction. The entire Senate- or House- passed health care bill could not and would not pass muster under the current reconciliation rules, which were established under my watch.

Yet a bill structured to reduce deficits by, for example, finding savings in Medicare or lowering health care costs, may be consistent with the Budget Act, and appropriately considered under reconciliation.

With all due respect, the Daily Mail’s hyperbole about “imposing government control,” acts of “disrespect to the American people” and “corruption” of Senate procedures resembles more the barkings from the nether regions of Glennbeckistan than the “sober and second thought” of one of West Virginia’s oldest and most respected daily newspapers.

Reporter loses it

"Hissy Fit"
If a reporter is going to allow personal feelings to show, better this than the rolled eyes, smirks, and looks of disgust whenever, say, a "Sarah Palin" is mentioned. At least Gordon Boyd's emotions are the result of him having a moral compass. 

The Biology Test & Monica Conyers

Today's Flunk ?
Boned Jello
I thought for sure I was right

I flunked my Biology exam last Friday. I was asked to name something commonly found in cells.

Apparently "African Americans" is not the correct answer.

I am so sorry, but I do love a good joke, and ethnic jokes are some of the best (as my Polish wife, and my ½ Polish kids can attest).  Now, add that I received this e-mail just moments after reading this., and  ...... well, how could I not?   I'll do community service this afternoon.

Pass the salt?

Rejectio ad absurdum

Boned Jello

Government controlled heath care has always been comprised of two disagreeable components. "More expensive and vastly more inefficient," describes the first.  It's here that the battle against, what has become the Administration's  bricolage of crap, bribes, and falsehoods has been focused.   But skulking in the wings is the second, more sinister consequence.  Government control of every aspect of our lives.

It's difficult to introduce this argument, because it smacks of politics, and will thus cause those schooled in the joy of gummint to lash out, like sharks, at anything that moves.  So, how fortuitous that, at this crucial juncture, the enemy have once again overreached.  Absurdly so.

In just 17 words, Liberals have painted a mind bubble  that every man, woman, and child in the country will see, and comprehend.  Pass the popcorn, but without salt. :)

2) Thought Experiment: If Health Care Is a Right
