Anyone here smart enough to read?
Well to protect those few, percentage wise, 'merican morons who over dose on OTC and prescription drugs, the FDA is considering taking some drugs away from us. And why do they o/d? The 'merican morons don't read the info given out with every drug they buy. Survival of the fittest anyone?
Once again, the nanny state bureaucrats want to protect us from ourselves. And damn the consequences to anyone who has a pain problem. Personally, I think it's another part of their ongoing snatch at controlling the medical industry in our country.
FDA panel recommends smaller doses of painkillers
Government experts say the maximum dose listed for Tylenol and dozens of other painkillers should be reduced to help curb deadly overdoses.
In a series of votes Tuesday, a Food and Drug Administration panel endorsed lowering the maximum dose of over-the-counter acetaminophen -- the key ingredient in Tylenol, Excedrin and other medications.
Acetaminophen is one of the most widely used drugs in the U.S. Many patients find it easier on the stomach than other painkillers like ibuprofen and aspirin, which can cause ulcers.
But despite years of educational campaigns and other federal actions, acetaminophen remains the leading cause of liver failure in the U.S., sending 56,000 people to the emergency room annually, according to the FDA.
FDA's experts voted 21-16 to lower the current maximum daily dose of nonprescription acetaminophen, which is 4 grams, or eight pills of a medication like Extra Strength Tylenol.
The group was not asked to recommend an alternative maximum daily dose.
Schteveo is sick, and tired of gub'ment fools
Or are these Brain Dead, byte addicted, MFing people just so GD stupid, that death evades their thought processes!!!?!!j
Here's YET another dumb ass person, some jock from Texas this time, crashes his car while TEXTING. Fortunately, no one was injured. However, he left the scene, and the police can't decide whether he should be charged, beings there were no injuries. If it was a linebacker from the University of Oklahoma, or 11 Mexicans in a '67 Impala, with skinny tires and a fancy interior, they'd be charged. But I digress.
WTF is it about text messages that these byte junkies can't stop, even when lives are stake?
Here's my suggestion. Don't charge him. But plug that device into the wall charger, stick it firmly up his a$$, and then plug the wall charger into a 440 line.
If that doesn't cure him, raise the voltage next time.
Here we go again. It�s those vicious Christians picking on those poor, peace-loving Mooselambs. Don�t those Christians know that this is Amerika, a free country, where you can do anything you like, (if you�re on the Left side of things) including training and making plans to destroy the whole place? Are we not the people who openly invite our most dreaded enemies to live amongst us, while we educate them, feed them, support them, house them, cloth them, and see to their every medical need, and all on the taxpaying citizens? Are we not loved the world over for our enlightened treatment of those whose only desire in life is to behead us all?
Maine is the other east coast location that�s always in competition with NYC for trying to out-do San Francisco as the most Leftist place in the country. So far, the race is too close to call�
Now, all of a sudden, many of the weak, corrupt, lying, elected crooks in DC are starting to realize that, not only was he right, but the guy's got something serious to say, and they're listening! Could so many, have been so wrong, for so long? It sure wouldn't be the first time...

Maobama & Hugo agree on this?? Of course they do.... since Zelaya was trying to make himself a dictator.
"We respect everybody and we ask only that they respect us and leave us in peace because the country is headed toward free and transparent general elections in November," Micheletti told HRN radio.
He insisted Zelaya's ouster was legal and accused the former president himself of violating the constitution by sponsoring a referendum that was outlawed by the Supreme Court. Many saw the foiled vote as a step toward eliminating barriers to his re-election, as other Latin American leaders have done in recent years.
Some expressed relief at the departure of Zelaya, who alienated the courts, Congress, the military and even his own party in his tumultuous three years in power.
Hmmm... I wonder if that will sound familiar to us in 3 years. I know this already does:
But Zelaya retains the loyalty of many of Honduras' poor, for having raised the minimum wage and blaming the country's problems on the rich — despite the considerable wealth he enjoys...
From 5/28 to 6/26 I used 7 therms of gas for a charge of $3.99. I used 162 kwH of electricity for a charge of $2.74 cents.
That's a total of $6.75 for 29 days of energy usage. Since this includes profit for the utility company this is what my total bill should be.
The total bill actually is $40.11. The $33.36 difference is for taxes and fees imposed by city, state, & taxing districts.
We do not need to become energy independent - we need to become tax & fee independent!!!!
The SCOTUS has just (reversed) the decision by Judge Sotomayor against the White firefighters in their Conn. reverse-discrimination case! Given the fact that her decision was so openly racist, i don't see how they could have done anything else. Will it stop her from getting the seat on that same SCOTUS? Don't count on it! (and for some odd reason, my ability to copy and paste seems to have disappeared!)

Iranian cleric urges executing some protesters
This seems a little drastic to me. But I'm not a Iranian Muslim Cleric, or a registered Democrat.
A senior cleric on Friday urged Iran's protest leaders to be punished "without mercy" and said some should face execution, harsh calls that signal a nasty new turn in the regime's crackdown on demonstrators two weeks after its disputed election.
Hard-liners have ordered long sentences and hangings before, and some fear those awaiting trial by a judiciary whose verdicts reflect the will of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei could face the most severe punishments the Islamic system can dish out.
"Anyone who takes up arms to fight with the people, they are worthy of execution," Ayatollah Ahmed Khatami, a ranking cleric, said in a nationally broadcast sermon at Tehran University.
Khatami said those who disturbed the peace and destroyed public property were "at war with God" and should be "dealt with without mercy."
An interesting article, and take the test mentioned it's here. I scored 87.5%, I screwed up 4 questions. Two answers I admit to not knowing, and two more I misread because I was watching TV, explaining the test to an 11 y/o, and taking the test all at once.
But, given that, I still scored above average, and I did indeed pass.
In his important 1988 book, Cultural Literacy, E.D. Hirsch warned that “children in the U.S. are being deprived of the basic knowledge that would enable them to function in contemporary society.”
Two decades later, we see the tragic results of our near-total failure to heed Hirsch’s alarm. The basic information that most high school and college graduates don’t know continues to astound those of us of all ages who managed to receive a pretty decent, often non-public education. In the Intercollegiate Studies Institute’s 2008 test of civic literacy, gauging citizens’ “knowledge of America’s founding principles and texts, core history, and enduring institutions,” 71% failed.
Hirsch's Dictionary of Cultural Literacy is on the bookshelf here, and at my son's homes. It's a MUST for teaching the kids our heritage and history and culture. It will play a huge part of my homeschooling of the 11 y/o starting in September.

An airport to nowhere...
Takotna to get $21 million airport
FAIRBANKS — The village of Takotna is getting a new $21 million airport, which translates to almost $500,000 per person in the small Bush village about 300 miles west of Fairbanks.
The state Department of Transportation and Public Facilities received a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to build the airport.
State officials aren’t thrilled about having to spend $21 million on an airport for a village of 46 people, but it’s not really an option, said Roger Maggard, DOT’s airport development manager.
“The fact of it is, in order to meet all the dimensional requirements that the FAA requires for funding an airport, they do become quite expensive,” Maggard said. “It doesn’t matter in terms of airport costs whether it’s 50 people or 250 people or 500 people. It still requires the same airport facility.”
The $21 million grant for the airport was part of more than $70 million worth of grants and contracts awarded to communities throughout Alaska by the U.S. Department of Transportation last week, according to a press release from the Alaska congressional delegation.
This, boys and girls, is where Obamanomics' 'stimulus' money goes.
Jimbo's alternate solution: Build a freaking GRAVEL ROAD to the next nearest airport in McGrath, 20 miles away. My God - every quote ever attributed to Will Rogers concerning the stupidity of government holds true on this one. *sigh*

'I have 3 demands or I'll kill the boy!'
Negotiators assess the situation from next door.
Head Negotiator dispatched
They probably spent $0.35 cents.
In our country, we would shut the street down for 48 hours. Take 12 hours to talk him out of it. Spend $5 million giving him a fair trial. And pay his food and lodging for life. No wonder their products are cheaper than ours!

So all that one has to do is get a same sex roommate and pretend to be gay for that person to get the same benefits as a federal employee? Hmmmmm.

"You do like getting your letters printed don't you? I read it this morning in the Star Ledger and now in the Courier News as well. The murder of the security guard is directly related to Faux News and the right wing commentators inciting people. Not Barack Obama.
Stop looking for conspiracies where they don't exist please."
This person I doubt is smart enough to have originated this idea so is there a leftist outlet blaming "right-wing commentators" on Fox News for inciting violence? I bet she means Glenn Beck and/or the tea party movement that people attribute to Fox News. This is along the lines of what was posted yesterday.

1) What is the "costliest employer-provided health coverage"? Health coverage that isn't government-provided health coverage? 2) Are the American people really so dumb that they would re-elect the liar right before their taxes are impacted or ARE they too worried about American Idol to even pay attention?
Maobama lied. America died.
Update: Sunday P.M.: No support for health benefits tax . Vice President Joe Biden said that administration doesn't want to tax health care benefits even though the proposal should be on the table.

Earth-Venus smash-up possible in 3.5 billion years !!!!!!!
and ALGORE is doing nothing about it!!!!!!!
So I will take charge..... please send me all your money (tax delectable, if you cheat on your taxes) and I will save the world!!!!!
my quick & easy solution - after I have all your money, I will pile it up on the side of the Earth scheduled to hit Venus thereby altering the gravitational effect of the two body system and averting the crash.
Then I will spend your money, saving the country from it's current economic problems....
Now, thanks to that media's influence over the thought process of far too many Americans, we find ourselves with a president who is an outright and unapologetic liar, one who is fully aware of his lies. Not just another exaggerating politician, but a full-blown liar! Just think back at all the things Obummer said during the campaign, then list all the things he's either done, not done, ignored, or totally reversed. Did he tell us he planned to nationalize our largest private corporations? Did he tell us our grandchildren would still be paying for his ideology? Did he tell us that we would go from a government of the people, for the people, and by the people, to an all-powerful, one party, ruling class? And once again, it's the MSM that allows him to get away with it.
How much damage will be done to our country before the American people catch on to, not just Obummer, but to the MSM? And here's the really scary question; do the Amerikan people, still consumed with the media-inspired Obamhysteria, still gulping their media-prepared Kool-Aid, even care?

Chastity Bono announces sex change
LOS ANGELES — Chastity Bono is having a sex change to become a man.
A spokesman for the daughter of Sonny and Cher says Bono "has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity" and began the sex-change process earlier this year.
Publicist Howard Bragman said Bono "is proud of his decision" and hopes "that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue."
The 40-year-old writer, activist and reality-TV star came out as gay 20 years ago.
Not that I truly care about any particular case like this, but WTF is wrong with the world? And I'm sorry, but if you're born with a vagina, you ain't a "him".
Schteveo shouldn't care
Shemp, wearing one of his Barnum and Baily suits, and with the usual tons of make-up on his face, then got onto the topic of president Yomama's birth certificate, and the "millions" of people who feel he's not legally qualified to be yo president. He then got very upset and made the outrageous statement that, "there is zero chance that he's not qualified, and the people who think that are all crazies"! Now, to make a definitive statement like that, one would assume this punk must've seen Obummer's birth certificate, right?
Now my questions are, has this nitwit been doin some bad drugs? Have the tons of make-up they paste on this punk seeped into his brain? Or, is he just another closet liberal who's managed to get into the Fox family of buffoons, loudmouths, ego maniacs, and morons?
US government seeks to rein in executive pay
Democrats want to push administration on US corporate pay strategies
Thursday June 11, 2009, 11:28 am EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Obama administration is taking a half-step toward taming U.S. executive pay. Some lawmakers prefer a fuller stride.
Democrats on the House Financial Services Committee said Thursday the administration's efforts to hector the private sector into reining in executive pay might not go far enough.
Rather than picking on the brightest folks who make Capitalism work - the Marxist bastards should pick on Stupid Hollywood actors and dumber professional athletes who make many times more than the average CEO.
I say leave the MBAs alone and go after the NBA, MLB, NFL, & SAG!
Your Attorney General, comrade Eric Holder, said sending these terrorists from Gitmo to Bermuda will "make Amerika safer". I could possibly follow that logic back when i was drinking, but right now it totally escapes me. Then again, what do i know. I'm just a tax payer...

President Barack Obama on Tuesday challenged Congress to pay for new increases in federal benefit programs as it goes rather than sink the nation deeper into a debt...
(In other words.... Get ready to pay a significant amount MORE in taxes.)
On the other hand.....
Obama: It's OK to borrow to pay for health care. Obama proposed budget rules allow deficits to swell to pay for health care plan.
(In other words.... Get ready to bend over for China, assuming China will loan the government MORE money.)

Villagers fight Taliban after Pakistan mosque blast
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Villagers in northwest Pakistan have attacked Taliban militants killing seven of them in revenge for a bomb attack on a mosque that killed at least 40 people, a top government official and residents said on Sunday.
It was the latest in a series of instances of people turning their guns on the Taliban in recent weeks and trying to force them out of their areas and will encourage the Pakistani government which needs public support to defeat the militants.
The United States, which needs sustained Pakistani action to help defeat al Qaeda and cut off militant support for the insurgency in Afghanistan, will also be heartened by the move.
The Pakistani military has been battling Taliban in the Swat valley, northwest of the capital, for more than a month after the militants took advantage of a peace pact to gain new ground.
The army offensive has broad public support even though many in Pakistan are ambivalent about the Taliban and are wary of the government's close alliance with the United States.
Taliban militants have also launched a string of bomb attacks in response to the military offensive and are suspected of being behind a suicide bomb attack on a mosque in the Upper Dir region, near Swat, that killed about 40 people on Friday.
After the blast, enraged villagers formed a militia, known as a lashkar, of about 500 men to expel the militants from the area, said the top government official in the region.
"They are standing up against the militants themselves as they consider them troublemakers," the government administrator, Atif-ur-Rehman, told Reuters by telephone.
I guess this proves, once and for all, they're ALL just murdering thugs, huh?
Schteveo hates group think / group hate
And yet the French say that even if his claims are false, and official US military records show that they are, they still plan to give him their highest military honor simply for being there. How typical of them. There are still veterans alive today who fought in that campaign, but i haven't read anything about any of them getting a medal from the frogs...

I've been a proponent of self power for years. Now, with the "smart grid" looming in our future, I'm more a proponent than ever. Screw President BOHICA being able to turn my thermostat up or down. Not until he turns Algore's down first!
`Smart grid' — buzz of the electric power industry
WASHINGTON — Thomas Alva Edison, meet the Internet.
More than a century after Edison invented a reliable light bulb, the nation’s electricity distribution system, an aging spider web of power lines, is poised to move into the digital age.
The “smart grid” has become the buzz of the electric power industry, at the White House and among members of Congress. President Barack Obama says it’s essential to boost development wind and solar power, get people to use less energy and tackle climate change.
What smart grid visionaries see coming are home thermostats and individual appliances that adjust automatically based on the cost of power, and water heaters that can draw power from a neighbor’s rooftop solar panel. They see a time when, on a scorching hot day, a plug-in hybrid electric car charges one minute and a few moments later sends electricity back into the grid to help avert a brownout.
I guess I'm an odd kinda person, I want what I want, and I'm willing to pay for it. So, I'll be using as much electricity as I want. Not to mention the fact that I've NEVER been able to see how my cutting back on anything here, will improve life in Sri Lanka or Germany or Tibet.

"The Obama administration earlier this year issued guidelines that include limiting salary for top executives at some firms receiving TARP funds and requiring that additional pay be in the form of restricted stock, vesting only after the company repays its debt, with interest, to the government. Congress then chimed in with even tougher rules curbing bonuses for top earners at firms receiving TARP money."
This makes Czar #15 according to Fox News. Move over Romanov Dynasty.
Another thing his visit with his Mooselamb brothers has taught me is that, all the things i've learned as a "natural born" American, are apparently wrong. America is not a Christian nation. We are in fact, "the worlds largest Mooselamb nation"! WTF!! So, in just over 100 days, not only has El Yobama managed to do away with those pesky little things that have bothered the far-Left for decades, like capitalism, democracy, private enterprise, etc., but now he's doing away with Christianity as well? I don't know about you, but these are the questions i'm asking my self.
1) Have the notoriously gullible, brain-dead, Kool-Aid gulping American people been duped into actually electing a foreign-born Mooselamb as their president?
2) Will 78.5% of the above-described people accept that they're no longer Christians, and if not, what will/can they do about it?
3) Is there enough will, brains, and backbone left in this country to admit that we've been had?
Because if there isn't, then we deserve everything that's coming our way...

It seems that Tim Geitner has a house he's taking a beating on. As President BOHICA's head money guy Geitner faces the same problem millions of Americans face, he's upside down, with respect to the mortgage, on his current home.
Let's just hope, that he's interested enough in his own plight, to fix this situation for everyone.
NEW YORK -- The real estate market's troubles are hitting close to home for Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.
After reducing the price on his house in a tony New York City suburb to less than he paid for it, Geithner still couldn't sell and recently rented it out instead, according to real estate agents familiar with the deal.
Geithner put his five-bedroom Tudor near leafy Larchmont on the market for $1.635 million in February, after heading to Washington for his job as the nation's top economic official.
A few weeks after the asking price was dropped to $1.575 million, the home was rented for $7,500 a month on May 21, said the agents, Scott Stiefvater of Stiefvater Real Estate and Debbie Meiliken of Keller Williams Realty New York.
My question is this, did the DNC find him a renter, or did some "agency" really do it? Either way, $7500 per month is stiff!!
And WTF ever happened to HLF!? Where did he / she go?

Sotomayor to make her Capitol Hill debut
Judge to hold meet-and-greets ahead of Supreme Court confirmation vote
WASHINGTON - Appeals court judge Sonia Sotomayor is getting her first chance to make an impression on senators who will vote on her nomination to the Supreme Court, with a marathon set of Capitol Hill meet-and-greets that kicks off what could be a long debate.
Sotomayor's schedule Tuesday is packed with roughly half-hour meetings — known as "courtesy calls" — that are as important for the courtly tone they set for the debate as they are for offering a few moments of candid conversation with the nominee.
Sotomayor is set to meet with 10 senators during her first day on Capitol Hill, retreating to Vice President Joe Biden's office in between sessions to huddle with the White House team, heavy with confirmation battle veterans, that's guiding her nomination.
"...retreating to Vice President Joe Biden's office in between sessions..."
Retreating? I'm not sure retreating is the correct term to use. Retreating, to most people, implies a fight, and a possible defeat, backing away to re-group for a fight.
I guess it would have sounded like gloating, or over the top to have said, "...waltzing to Vice President Joe Biden's office in between sessions...", OR "...cake walking to Vice President Joe Biden's office in between sessions...", OR, because Ms Sotamaor is of Spanish descent, "...Salsa Dancing to Vice President Joe Biden's office in between sessions...".
