Animals Seek Warmth PSA


Please remember it’s winter and animals seek out the heat of vehicles to stay warm.  Before starting your car, please check around the wheels and engine for these cold animals. You may not even notice they are there.

Mapping the long and short of sex
Maryland is number 16 in the country, with a duration of 3 minutes 15 seconds.

 A not-very-scientific ranking of states determined those that have the longest and shortest duration of sex.

Topping the list, by a large margin is New Mexico, where an act of love lasts just over 7 minutes, according to Nerve, an online magazine dedicated to sex, relationships and culture.

The data comes from Spreadsheets, a sex activity app that promises to "track your performance between the sheets."

The app monitors the users' movement and audio levels, using the phone's accelerometer and microphone.

How do we rank around here?

Honestly? Not great.

Maryland is number 16 in the country, with a duration of 3 minutes 15 seconds. The Old Line State has a little old man in it.

While the slogan reads "Virginia is for lovers," apparently love is very fleeting. Virginia ranks number 37, with a duration of 2 minutes 23 seconds.

And, while things take forever to get accomplished on Capitol Hill, love gets done very fast in the District of Columbia. D.C. is ranked number 45, with a duration of 2 minutes 8 seconds.

Alaska limps in at number 51, with an apologetic 1 minute 21 seconds.

Here's the entire list: (WTOP)

" Alaska limps in at number 51, with an apologetic 1 minute 21 seconds."

The whole world is upside down.  Yet another bogus "man hating" story pushed by the Democrat Media Complex.

That paltry one minute 21 second sexual endurance makes Alaska men the most satisfied with their wife; girlfriend, or chance elevator partner  in the nation.  Women know that.  Think about it.  What does the quick climax tell your lover?  That's right.  It tells her that you find her uncontrollably sexy,  and only trying the mental  gymnastic of naming the 1958  Chicago White Sox roster keeps you in the saddle longer than 10-15 seconds!  My God. she brags about it to her girlfriends.

Must gotta be a whole lot of ugly in New Mexico though.

Journalists Won't Put Up with Regime Monitors in Newsrooms? Don't Be So Sure... (Rush)

"That's what they said.  They want to put monitors in there, find out what stories are being chosen and why they're being chosen, and what stories aren't being chosen."

 Like Obamacare? Then you're going to love Obamanews - the exciting new FCC initiative to make sure that decision-making in the nation's newsrooms gets (ahem) "fixed" to assure that voters will hear only what they are supposed to hear.

The program, called the "Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs" or CIN (presumably pronounced "sin") for short, will place FCC "researchers" in newsrooms to examine how reporters, editors, and station owners decide which news stories to run, and why more female anchorwomen aren't wearing tampon earrings (as was done on MSNBC) to protest the GOP's War on Women.

The FCC researchers, who absolutely shouldn't be called "thought police" unless you want your mysterious death reported as an "on the lighter side" news item, will review "the process by which stories are selected," whether the news organizations cover "critical information needs," whether they're responsive to "underserved populations," and whether there is "perceived station bias" in harping on old stories like Benghazi when there's so much breaking news about Miley Cyrus.

Oddly, the FCC's "fact finding mission" will include placement of their representatives in news organizations which deal only in print...over which the FCC has absolutely no authority. Then again, as long as Barack Obama is making up new powers and getting away with it unchallenged, why should any other agencies show restraint? Especially if it will never be reported.

But truthfully, Hope n' Change DOESN'T think this is a draconian abuse of the First Amendment, we DON'T think this will have a chilling effect on what little news is still being reported, and we most certainly DON'T have a scary-looking FCC guy standing behind us right this very minute help help help.

Pad Thai sauce

1/3 cup good-tasting chicken stock
3 Tbsp. rice vinegar OR white vinegar
1 Tbsp. lime juice
3-4 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. fish sauce
1 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/8 tsp. white pepper

We had a taste for Tad Thai last night but didn't have any of the delicious bottled sauce we normally use.  So, I used this recipe, and it was outstanding.  The tastes were bright compared to the bottle, let alone the powdered stuff, so this is on our culinary map.  But that's not what I wanted to tell you.  

This Pad Thai sauce is so freaking good that, I swear, I could drink it out of a glass.  In fact, I took several TBSP of the stuff,  and only stopped because I didn't want to make more for dinner.  If I was a bachelor I'd have just had the sauce and shrimp for dinner.  I think it will make an excellent dipping sauce for chinese dumplings too.  Also. I stock candied ginger because it will keep forever, grates well, and has a great freash taste.

.... 15-cents-a-gallon carbon tax on fuel next year

 ... is it that God makes the weather change all the time but some people say it isn't God but because you and mommy blow bad gasses into the ironment?
Because the gummint are MFCCS


SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — The state Senate leader on Thursday proposed a tax on consumer fuel purchases of gasoline, oil, diesel, ethanol and natural gas, with the money raised diverted to mass transit projects and households making less than $75,000 annually.

The plan by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, would not create an additional tax, however. Instead, it would alter how money is raised and spent under a provision of California’s landmark 2006 greenhouse gas emissions law, known as AB32.

Rhys Williams, Steinberg’s press secretary, emailed KCAL9’s Dave Bryan and said, “It’s not a gas tax. He’s not raising gas taxes. Prices on fuels are set to rise, unpredictably, when the cap-and-trade program expands to cover fuels in 2015. Instead, the senator proposes replacing this expansion with a stable tax on carbon.”

Environmental and business groups immediately opposed Steinberg’s plan, and Republican lawmakers questioned whether it could pass the Legislature.

It would impose an estimated 15-cents-a-gallon carbon tax on fuel next year, offsetting an indirect tax that will be imposed in 2015 under the existing law that helped establish the nation’s largest carbon-trading marketplace.

The state’s current cap-and-trade program applies only to industrial plants. It allows companies with higher emissions of greenhouse gases to buy pollution credits from companies that have found a way to lower their emissions below a certain threshold.

But next year, the cap-and-trade program is scheduled to be extended to the producers of carbon-based consumer fuels. In turn, that will raise prices at the pump by an uncertain level.

Steinberg said his proposal would raise the per-gallon carbon tax to an estimated 24 cents by 2020, which he said would still be lower than the 40-cents-a-gallon price hike that is possible under AB32. He acknowledged, however, that by 2029 his proposed carbon tax would be higher than the upper projected limit under the current law.

Either tax will sting motorists at the pump as a necessary way to lower fuel consumption and discourage the emission of gases blamed for causing global warming, Steinberg said.

“On the issue of climate change, we have no choice: We must reduce the amount of carbon we put in the air, and that will come with a price,” he said. “Nothing is free.” [Full Baloney Pony]
