Here is the National Debt Clock……………….
Pushing back the frontiers of the National Socialist Workers Party………………
Obama says he will be reforming No Child Left Behind. That’s not to be confused with Michelle Obama’s childhood obesity campaign, “No Child Left With a Big Behind.”
Joe Biden once again denied stories that he will be replaced on the ticket in 2012. He says he will continue to embarrass President Obama for another four years.
Warren Buffett’s company reportedly owes the IRS a billion dollars in back taxes. When he said he wasn't paying enough taxes, he wasn't kidding.
20 years ago, Steve Jobs, Johnny Cash, and Bob Hope were all alive. Today, we have no jobs, no cash, and no hope.
The stock market skyrocketed on Columbus Day. See what happens when the banks and the federal government shut down for a day?
2012 Election is going to be an intelligence test...............
President Obama's jobs council is headed by GE CEO Jeff Immelt, which makes sense, because when Americans see an unmitigated failure like him keeping his job, we all feel confident about ourselves again!
A government audit revealed that last year the Justice Department spent $4 million for sweets and pastries served at conferences they hosted. Wow. Those have to be the most costly government tarts since Gary Hart's and Bill Clinton's.
President Obama says he is "a little heartbroken" about the NBA lockout. It just means more good paying jobs headed overseas.
The White House is apparently pushing to create more Latino-themed landmarks. Now that's in addition to our current Latino-themed landmark, California.
Big Ben is leaning to one side, but they think that it might be able to somehow correct itself. And I thought well, yeah, look at Mitt Romney. He used to lean to the left, now he leans to the right.

According to WMAL.com, "The FBI has awarded a $524,927 contract to a Virginia company to record as much radio news and talk programming as it can find on the Internet. ...
The world's first computer virus came from Pakistan. It was called "Brain." This is TRUE!
The Justice Department reported Monday it will begin raiding California's medical marijuana stores. Whose side are they on? First they supply the Mexican drug cartel with automatic weapons and now they're closing down the American stores that compete with them.
The U.N. is a place where governments opposed to free speech demand to be heard.
The psychological and physical aspects of addiction are amazing. I gave up sniffing airplane dope and became completely unglued.
California’s 12 percent unemployment rate in August, the nation’s second-highest after Nevada, compared with 9.1 percent nationwide. “Women represent nearly half of the workforce and they gained just one of the 10 jobs added”
Occupy Wall Street.......................
Union members joined the young demonstrators in the "Occupy Wall Street" protest yesterday. Now the kids are hoping the union guys will teach them how to not work and still get paid for it!
The Wall Street protesters say they 'want a voice'. The people who live near the protests wish they wanted a bath.
If the Flea Party were really concerned about the greedy "Wall Street 1 Percent," shifting money around to make themselves richer and everyone else poorer, their No. 1 target should be George Soros.
New York's Occupy Wall Street protesters argued among themselves Tuesday about whether they should sew their own sleeping bags with winter coming or engage in capitalism and buy them. Also, they argued over whether to beg for food or buy donuts. It took two hours in the real world to convert the entire movement to supply-side economics.
Just as Susan Sarandon joined the anti-corporate protesters in Lower Manhattan, a huge billboard of her endorsing a Japanese clothing chain that uses sweat shop Chinese labor has gone up in Midtown. Perhaps Sarandon was protesting the fact that there just aren't enough jobs for eight-year-old Chinese kids.

The man who invented Doritos passed away at the age of 97. Let that be a lesson, kids. Junk food will kill you.
We all get heavier as we get older, because there's a lot more information in our heads. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
I was going to buy a copy of The Power of Positive Thinking, and then I thought, what good would that do?"

Recently, the Chinese newspapers carried stories of a discovery at one of the many archeological digs in that country. In a cave outside of Beijing, they found a very large cache of eggs that had been buried for over a thousand years. When they finally excavated the eggs, people could not believe they were that old. Scientists issued a statement to the public explaining the evidence, and saying that one just had to believe the proof. For really, wasn't it just another case of mined ova matter?
After a heavy day's digging at the archeological site in Norway, researchers uncovered a priceless statue of the ancient Norse thunder god. He had bulging muscles and imposing stance, and his famous giant hammer. But most important of all, the eyes in his fierce-looking face were made of two giant rubies that glittered with a brilliant red color. Of course, the two leading archeologists on the dig were both determined that they should be the one to have their name listed on the discovery. Pretty soon, a big argument was underway. The two provided the others with a great source of amusement for the evening. By the time they finally gave up and called a truce, everyone else was feeling quite refreshed by the entertainment. As the crowd dispersed, one junior digger turned to his friend, and said: "Well, that was a fight for Thor eyes."
Hungry Harry’s Hundred Best Hoaxes……………………………
#65: Y2K Solved. In 1999 the Singapore Straits Times reported that a 17-year-old high school student had one-upped all the major software corporations of the world by creating a small computer program that would easily solve the Y2K bug. The camera-shy C student had supposedly devised the program in twenty-nine minutes while solving an algebra problem for his homework. His family and a technology consulting group were reportedly forming a joint venture named 'Polo Flair' in order to commercialize the discovery. They anticipated achieving revenues of $50 million by the end of the year. Numerous journalists and computer specialists contacted the Straits Times, seeking more information about the boy genius and his Y2K cure. One journalist even wanted to know if the boy would be willing to appear on TV, despite the fact that he was camera shy. Unfortunately the boy and his ingenious program didn't exist. Quick-witted readers would have noticed that 'Polo Flair' was an anagram for 'April Fool.'

They can hold all the peace talks they want, but there will never be peace in the Middle East.
