    Some middle school students in Georgia got a lesson in slang from the streets this week and some parents are not pleased. WSAV-TV is reporting a class at Godley Station School got quizzed on words like “punked,” “popo,” “true dat” and “bling bling.” A parent posted the quiz online and now many are questioning what arrived on the desks of some Savannah-Chatham students this week. Labeled as “Geography Jumpstart,” the instructions of the worksheet called for the middle school class to define words like “yo,” “dog,” “punked,” “popo,” “sportin’” and “bling-bling” based on the context of sentences provided. …

    Who let this out of the kitchen?To those who say there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans I have another item to add to the million already compiled. A Republican First Lady would never order such a hideous, comical birthday cake to celebrate her husband's birthday. The Obama's were supposed to be the new "glam" power couple in the White House But with Michelle dressing in something that looks like it came out her daughters' art class when she visited Westminster Abbey in London I guess we shouldn't be too surprised at this: "44?" He's the 44th President but...

    Barack Obama's campaign tossed around nearly $600 at Tiffany's last month - for a trinket that remains a secret. Obama's team tapped his flush campaign bank account to pay the $572.25 tab at the famed jeweler last month, recently released federal fund-raising records show. When asked about the curious expenditure, campaign spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, "That was mistakenly charged to a campaign credit card and the money has been refunded to the campaign." Psaki insisted that the senator did not make the purchase himself but she refused to say whether the gift was in any way connected to him or...
  • Entente truly cordiale for "Bling-Bling" Sarkozy

    LONDON (Reuters) - The French and the English once settled their bloody differences on the battlefield. That evolved into a love-hate relationship based on mutual mistrust with the French mocking "les rosbifs" and the English lampooning "the frogs." But now, with interdependence reigning supreme in an ever shrinking global village, the entente could not be more cordiale as Queen Elizabeth prepares to welcome France's flamboyant new President Nicolas Sarkozy to Windsor Castle on Wednesday. Sarkozy's predecessor Jacques Chirac was renowned for his testy clashes with former British leader Tony Blair. He said scornfully of the British "you can never trust...

    Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, despite heavy spending and intensive campaigning, finds himself in a tightening race in Iowa with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, forcing Romney to aggressively confront an opponent with far less money and organizational backing who was far back in the polls a few weeks ago. (snip) Seven weeks before the Jan. 3 caucuses, a New York Times/CBS News Poll published Wednesday had Romney capturing support from 27 percent of likely Republican voters in Iowa - and Huckabee within striking range at 21 percent. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani was third with 15 percent, former...

    Expensive trainers 'a waste of cash' By Stewart Payne Last Updated: 6:31am BST 11/10/2007 Expensive trainers do not give more protection to runners' feet than cheaper ones and are not worth the money, according to research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine. The study will come as unwelcome news to the 1.5 million runners in the UK who deliberate long and hard over their choice of footwear, believing that the more they pay the better protection they will get. Worth their weight in gold? Researchers examined nine commonly available trainers, ranging in price from £40 to £75, and...

    Police: Pa. Boy Stabs Brother Over Game Jul 17 01:16 PM US/Eastern LANSDOWNE, Pa. (AP) - A 13-year-old boy fatally stabbed his brother with a steak knife after the 16-year-old refused to turn over a video game controller, authorities said. Jahmir Ricks was charged with first-degree murder in the death of Antwan Ricks at their home outside Philadelphia. The older boy died of a single stab wound to the chest, police said, and a bent and bloody knife was recovered from the home. Lansdowne police said the younger boy told them, "I just stabbed my brother," when they arrived at...

    Mouth grills are so last year. The newest (and some say safer) way to display dental bling: tooth jewelry. Unlike grills -- mouthpieces that blanket the teeth like gaudily bejeweled braces -- tooth jewelry is a less ostentatious, less expensive and less intrusive way to sparkle when you smile. Monika Linau, owner of Santa Barbara, Calif.-based DecoDent, sells a range of tooth crystals and jewelry that includes crosses, aliens, Nike-swoosh lookalikes, and gems in heart and star shapes. The jewels are meant to be attached by dentists with a composite substance. "It's basically the same process as a colored tooth...

    Bill Cosby didn't waste a second Saturday afternoon giving an almost entirely black audience at the Georgia World Congress Center exactly what they probably expected, which, in the comedian's words, was a "whuppin'." "It has come to this," Cosby said, reprimanding his hosts and the audience as he took the podium, following civil rights leader Andrew Young at the 20th Annual 100 Black Men of America convention. "Who would think that Andy Young would be sitting and I would be standing last to be the keynote speaker? Either they [the sponsors of the event] don't know. Or they tend to...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    (CBS/AP) Snoop Dogg is out on bail after a brawl involving police at London's Heathrow Airport.Attorney Peter Binning says no charges were filed, and although the rapper will have to return at a later date, he'll be able to honor his concert commitments in South Africa. Police say seven British officers were hurt in a "disturbance" that broke out when the rap star and his party were denied access to a first class airport lounge. When the group was told it couldn't board the flight, police say some members of the party became abusive and shoved officers. British Airways planned...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

Yet the Supreme Court thre out sodomy laws in all 50 states and recognized the right of government to seize land for any reason. And you couldn't pass your Social Security changes could you? Sorry, that was your last shot. Come November, we're going to start seeing more Democratic faces in the House. It's the end for you guys. You guys are celebrating when Bush's numbers go *up* to 45%.

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...
