Has any one seen my plastic bags? They were so gay. Pink with lace handles. If you find them, bring them over to that wonderful gay bar Paul and Harveys in Sunnyvale. They will make sure I get them.

The old rickety country called North Korea keeps unveiling its greatest Cold War prize, the captured US Navy spy ship USS Pueblo.

This relic is so prized by this country they maintain it rather than use the money to feed the poor of their country which die from starvation on a daily bases.

And some feel the USS Pueblo should be used for aiming point for nuke bomb testing on the North.

Killing another business that caters to free-loaders. Funny how no one is giving away beans or rice. That would really be ridiculous. Actually giving away beans and rice would not be as accepted because you have to cook it first which means you would have to do more than just take it and then throw it away. You can still buy the single use plastic bags and keep your beloved businesses alive. Of course I wont be doing that because the bottom line is the public works department has to clean up all of the bags that run away from the trash cans and give the public the bill. One more problem with single use plastic bags is the color is many times that beige color which many marine animals mistake as food. There is more data on this from http://www.algalita.org/

The political rep says that we must cut the minimum wage to $2.25 and hour and flush all social programs like medicare, obamacare, social security, multiracial schools and colleges and unemployment insurance, unions and foodstamps. He says this will make evrything okay again like it was in the 50's. I sure do hope so and he says that all christians must vote for this so I guess I got to. I hope it works right but you got to have faith.

You are right. The social safety net is a concept that was devised by and for the peoples of White Western Christian nations. Such a concept simply cannot work when the system is swamped by unemployable people of color, despite what is being taught by wealthy overpaid and under-worked taxpayer supported 60s 70s era "professors" in expensive taxpayer funded funded Government universities.

All of us White non-Homosexual guys are flocking into beer joints to drink Stolichnaya and other fine Russian vodka products. It's a way for the non-Homosexual crowd - the vast majority of Americans - to express their sexuality.
