Let's Help Billy Help the Vets!

Let’s urge Keith Olbermann and/or Michael Moore to Help Bill-O Help the Homeless!

Write them here:
letters@msnbc.com;
mike@michaelmoore.com

Bill O'Reilly says the whole "homeless Iraq vets" story is untrue and says:

ES: I think (Edwards’) message is strong and he has tremendous conviction, but I think he needs a little bit more material than just the “Two Americas” talk, he got to get a little bit deeper…

BO: Well, we’re still looking for all the veterans sleeping under the bridges, Ed, so if you find anybody, let us know, because that’s all the guy said for the last three nights…

ES: Well they’re out there, Bill. Don’t kid yourself.

BO: They may be out there, but there’s not many of them out there. Okay? So if you know where one is, Ed…

ES: Well, actually…Now, wait a minute…one in ..

BO: Ed, Ed. If you know where’s a veteran, sleeping under a bridge, you call me immediately, and we will make sure that man does not do it. Is not there.

So how about bringing a few of the estimated 200,000 to Bill's home or FOCK SNOOZE so he can make good on his promise?

Offering to match his donations dollar for dollar and broadcasting his response might also be a good move.


Quote of the Day:
They say misery loves company.
We could start a company and make misery.
Frustrated, incorporated
I know just what you need,
I might just have the thing,
I know what you'd pay to see...

Put me out of my misery;
I'd do it for you, would you do it for me?
We will always be busy
Makin' misery....

We could build a factory and make misery.
We'll create the cure; we made the disease.
Frustrated, Incorporated

Put me out of my misery,
All you suicide kings and drama queens
Forever after happily
Makin' misery....

Did you satisfy your greed?
Get what you need?
Was it only envy....
...So empty....

Fun for the Whole Family! Collect 'Em All!




Those wack folks over at a DailyKos, say what you will about them, are at times a clever lot. Today's light-hearted fun is a little contest. My own personal contributions (on the spur of the moment, no less!):

Doofus MccChucklefuck
Chimpus Maximus
Lunkhead McPretzel
Blunderboy

I'm sure you can add a few to this fine list (and yes, the lovely photoshopping is all mine).

But for real belly laughs, the posts (and comments!) over at Wonkette cannot be beat.

Tune of the Day:

Do you don't you want me to make you?
I'm coming down fast, but don't let me break you.
Tell me, tell me, tell me the answer --
Well you may be a lover but you ain't no dancer...

Look out! Helter Skelter....

Happy Damn New Year!

Yee-frickin'-HAW!

Fresh on the heels of a resounding Obama victory in whitebread America, there is more fantastic news:

BBC News is reporting that a French company has developed a pollution-free car which runs on compressed air. India's Tata Motors has the car under production and it may be on sale in Europe and India by the end of the year.

The air car, also known as the Mini-CAT or City Cat, can be refueled in minutes from an air compressor at specially equipped gas stations and can go 200 km on a 1.5 euro fill-up -- roughly 125 miles for $3. The top speed will be almost 70 mph and the cost of the vehicle as low as $7000.

The car features a fibreglass body and a revolutionary electrical system and is completely computer-controlled. It is powered by the expansion of compressed air, using no combustion at all, and the exhaust is entirely clean and cool enough for use in the internal air conditioning system.

Tata Motors is known for its interest in innovation and has been selling compressed gas buses since 2000. It is currently working on producing the world's cheapest car, which will be almost 100% plastic and will sell in India for about $2500.

Tata is also expanding into the world market. It acquired Korea's Daweoo in 2004 and is now the top bidder to purchase the originally British Jaguar and Land Rover lines from the United States' troubled Ford Motor Company.
