    Bowe Bergdahl compared his first year in Taliban captivity — starved, stinking and chained to a bed — to being tossed in a closet and forgotten. “Picture someone taking a bag, throwing it into the closet, shutting the door and just forgetting about it. That was basically how they treated me,” he said. (snip) Although watching over Bergdahl was a high honor, the guards were often bored and would pass the time by making videos of him, interrogating him with ridiculous questions or shaving his beard into shapes they found amusing, he said. “They ask you, is Obama gay and...

    In a nutshell The Legislature has introduced a number of abortion-related bills this session, but the one that has drawn the most ire from the business community is a measure seeking to ban the sale and use of aborted fetal tissue. The bill, introduced by Rep. Andre Jacque, R-DePere, and co-sponsored by 29 other Republican representatives and five Republican senators, would make it illegal to experiment on a fetal body part. A fetal body part is defined as “a cell, tissue, organ, or other part of, or any material derived from any cell or tissue of, an unborn child who...

    Washington boy finds whiskey in Mountain Dew A 13-year-old in Shoreline said he took a swig of his Mountain Dew and it turned out to be whiskey. His parents say the bottle was sealed and looked legit. Except for the color it looks like a fully functional Mountain Dew, said Marie Grant, mother. Marcus Olson immediately spit it out. It tasted a little bitter. It didnt taste like Mountain Dew at all, he said. His mother said her son drank at least a shot. Grant is furious. She claims shes only getting the run around from both Pepsi and the...
  • Pepsi Says Mountain Dew Can Dissolve Mouse Carcasses

    Pepsi Co., facing a lawsuit from a man who claims to have found a mouse in his Mountain Dew can, has an especially creative, if disgusting, defense: their soda would have dissolved a dead mouse before the man could have found it. An Illinois man sued Pepsi in 2009 after he claims he "spat out the soda to reveal a dead mouse," the Madison County Record reports. He claims he sent the mouse to Pepsi, which then "destroyed" the remains after he allowed them to test it, according to his complaint. Most shudder-worthy, however, is that Pepsi's lawyers also found...

    An Indiana man lost for four days after his car became lodged in deep snow said he survived on Mountain Dew and mountain snow.

  • Mountain Dew Economics Wont Solve Our Problems

    America, and indeed the World, is in a difficult economic period. As the new Administration gets ready to take office, the question remains exactly how it will address our economic woes. Sadly, it appears that Obamanomics wont satisfy our long terms needs as much as it will attempt to provide a sugar rush for the economy. Like other such elixirs, however, that momentary rush will subside and our long term problems will remain if not be worse. It is worthy to note that we got into this problem because the government inflated the housing market by inducing, if not forcing...

    Sign in front of Faith Community Lutheran Church ^ | April 18th, 2005 | Me (Photographer)
    As I was driving to work the other night on my trek from Boulder to Ft. Collins a fairly large two sided 'advertising' sign in front of a church, Faith Community Lutheran, in Longmont caught my eye. Upon first glance at about 55 mph I thought it was an advertisement for 'Mountain Dew' and about a 1/2 mile down the road my natural curiosity caused me to turn around for a closer look. The sign said "Experience what Jesus can Dew for you", along with the hours for the church services. Get this... the color scheme was exactly that of...

    It's just a hunch, I have no evidence. I have no inside information, accept what I intuit from what I see. The Pubs made a bad move with the Federal Legislation; GWB realized that too late. He could not storm the hospice for 2 reasons: (1) The media would have eaten him alive as a police state Hitler; (2) there are police offers guarding the hospice who have a duty also, and there could have been bloodshed. The worst of all worlds. The same applied to Jeb Bush- I believe that GWB, Jeb and all the pubs backed off because,...
