must see clip on welfare. a popular thing to say these days is that it is un-christian to oppose welfare. you can care about the poor, and still realize that government economic intervention has hurt poor people more than it helps them. in the 20th century, the US government threw trillions of dollars into the 'war on poverty' and the national poverty rate has stayed exactly the same.

legalize it!

a hedge fund manager retires, and writes a goodbye note. he digresses into a pot rant, but has some good points on a policy that puts weed users in prison, but is ok with alcohol and tobacco companies playing a big part in our gov't.

from his goodbye letter to clients: "Lastly, while I still have an audience, I would like to bring attention to an alternative food and energy source. You won’t see it included in BP’s, “Feel good. We are working on sustainable solutions,” television commercials, nor is it mentioned in ADM’s similar commercials. But hemp has been used for at least 5,000 years for cloth and food, as well as just about everything that is produced from petroleum products. Hemp is not marijuana and vice versa. Hemp is the male plant and it grows like a weed, hence the slang term. The original American flag was made of hemp fiber and our Constitution was printed on paper made of hemp. It was used as recently as World War II by the U.S. Government, and then promptly made illegal after the war was won. At a time when rhetoric is flying about becoming more self-sufficient in terms of energy, why is it illegal to grow this plant in this country? Ah, the female.

The evil female plant – marijuana. It gets you high, it makes you laugh, it does not produce a hangover. Unlike alcohol, it does not result in bar fights or wife beating. So, why is this innocuous plant illegal? Is it a gateway drug? No, that would be alcohol, which is so heavily advertised in this country. My only conclusion as to why it is illegal, is that Corporate America, which owns Congress, would rather sell you Paxil, Zoloft, Xanax and other additive drugs, than allow you to grow a plant in your home without some of the profits going into their coffers. This policy is ludicrous. It has surely contributed to our dependency on foreign energy sources. Our policies have other countries literally laughing at our stupidity, most notably Canada, as well as several European nations (both Eastern and Western). You would not know this by paying attention to U.S. media sources though, as they tend not to elaborate on who is laughing at the United States this week."

From The Onion

if you have seen the Comedy Central Roasts, and you know about the President of Iran, you will think this is hillarious.


I swear a chick on the show named her baby that, after maury povich. think its pretty safe to say if you name your baby after maury, you probably are going to have to figure out who the father is on national television.
