    There's been a lot of vitriol hurled at both Democrats and Republicans this election, but I'd like to focus on one party that has, until this point, largely escaped some richly deserved criticism. The voters. That's right, the precious American voters: Sacred stewards of democracy. You don't have to spin around in an election cycle for long to discover that a shocking number of voters are in fact gullible, greedy, oblivious to facts, or simply fundamentally retarded. However, three types of voters deserve special mention for taking their constitutionally guaranteed right to vote, and essentially wiping their with it. Let's...

    A 13-year-old boy who gave a girl a lovebite at school is facing an assault charge, an allegation his parents call excessive. Police in Richland, Texas, issued the teenager with a summons for assault by contact after the girl's parents reported the incident to Richland Middle School, officials said. The boy's mother, Patricia Singh, said her son had been punished with a three-day suspension from school. He was not named because of his age. Assault by contact, a class C misdemeanour, carries a fine of about $US280 ($400). The boy, who pleaded not guilty at his court hearing, told the...

    PERHAPS the most important Al-Qaeda prisoner to have been captured since September 11, Abu Zubaydah, a Saudi-born Palestinian, could be sent to a US military base on the British Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia in an attempt to disorientate him. The arrest of Zubaydah, 31, in Pakistan last month has presented Washington with a unique opportunity to penetrate the highest level of Al-Qaeda’s operational command. The terrorist chief was believed to have been attempting to re-group Al-Qaeda units when his safe house in Faisalabad was raided by Pakistani police and American agents. Zubaydah was badly wounded in the shootout...

He took a couple of phone calls from guys who claimed to have the disease and tried to find out just how dangerous it is. The stories were conflicting so Howard didn't know what to believe. In a press release from Pam's people they claim that she might have gotten Hepatitis C when she shared a tattoo needle with ex-husband Tommy Lee. Tommy Lee denies even having Hepatitis C though.After that discussion Gary came in with a list of 64 hot women that were...

    College Girls: Unpaid Whores If you were to visit a women’s studies department at an elite university, you would encounter a wide variety of courses on the sexual liberation of women. The main thrust of these courses is that for too long, various social institutions have prevented women from exploring their sexual desires. Now, thanks to the heroism of such women as Gloria Steinem, Margaret Sanger, and Bella Abzug, women have been partially freed from the oppressive forces of male patriarchy. In other words, young women are encouraged to be whores. The chant of Gen. Y college babes might as...
