Ted: Gone but not forgotten

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (1932-2009)Camelot has officially fallen yesterday as former Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy died at the age of 77.  This thus ends the Kennedy era.  He lost two of his brothers due to assassinations on November 22, 1963 and June 4, 1968 respectively.

The need for healthcare reform is more important than ever. Ted would be proud if the reform became a reality.

Ramblin’ Rupert

Rupert MurdochRupert Murdoch, the president of NewsCorp, is absolutely losing it.  He wants to charge viewers for all the online content associated with television stations and newspapers that are part of NewsCorp. Can you say WTF?!?!?!

Don’t we already pay for the internet? I mean, having to pay to view any or all online material on either of the Fox O&Os and NewsCorp-owned MyNetwork affiliates is overkill. I smell a rat. No, a pi-rat. Yah!!! Shiver me timbers! May the landlubbers pay for viewing our websites. Arrrrgh!!! We’ll be successful and I’ll be getting a nice booty (now, don’t get it twisted. When I said “booty”, I meant “cash,”  CASH! So get your mind out of the gutter. Sheeesh!)

We’ll be walking the plank if we’re not careful.

Cash for Clunkers?!

Cash for Clunkers? More like Cash for Flunkers.

Since the government-approved Cash for Clunkers program took flight last Monday, millions of car dealerships across America gave away money like hotcakes. Two days later, the government is broke. What…the….. !

Apparently, the program to rid the road of these gas-guzzling behemoths and offer the tax credit of $4,500 toward the purchase of a fuel-efficient vehicle had gotten so popular, the federal government surreptitously ran out of money. But this does not mean the program is over. Only vehicles that meet the requirements are eligible for the Cash for Clunkers $4,500 tax credit.  That’s right, John Q. Lawmaker; you can bail out the greedy CEOs on Wall Street, but what about us…the hardworking Average Joes on Main Street? We need a bailout, too!
