We interrupt this Blog Break to bring you this special post, The World Famous Friday Open Thread.
Here is the WFFOT Reading Assignment, courtesy of Boortz:
Apparently John McCain is gearing up to run one of the most unconventional campaigns in recent history.
Here we go with these single women voters again. In this election, single women are supposed to be for Democrats what evangelical Christians were for Republicans in 2004. Did you know that single-parent households cost our economy over $12 billion a year?
The House Ways and Means Committee has passed legislation that would give unemployed workers an additional 13 weeks of jobless benefits. There’s a name for this. Vote buying.
This can’t be good news … an Afghan legislative committee is drafting a bill to introduce Taliban-style Islamic morality codes, which include banning women from wearing makeup in public and forbidding men from wearing female fashions.
Chevron is being sued by environmental activists for committing “environmental sins.” I guess they read that stuff from the Vatican a few months ago.
A government middle school teacher in Ohio has been told that he must remove a Bible that is sitting on his desk because the children might see it.
Mexicans spent almost $3 billion in bribes in 2007 … that’s almost two bribes for every living Mexican.
We have a picture of Jesus that is being taken down from a Louisiana court house.
Apparently this is how kids are bullied in schools nowadays … they bring peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and hope their classmates swell up with peanut allergies.
The world’s oldest tree has been discovered in Sweden … and guess why that really matters? Because it has rewritten the history of the climate in the region where it used to be a lot warmer.
I’m surprised a government school would let a student do a science experiment to test whether Chinese water torture would produce a fear response. This kid will be featured on America’s Most Wanted someday.
Great Britain is alarmed because one out of every five killings in Britain is committed by a foreigner. What do you want to bet that the vast majority of these “foreigners” are Muslims.
Cell phones on public transportation are really becoming an issue lately and many places are cracking down.
And now for the world’s smallest dog … a 4 inch Chihuahua named Dancer.
And, finally, from WSJ, an excerpt from the Dem debate in Philly, “Obama’s Tax Evasion“…
But Mr. Gibson had noted that higher rates yield less revenue. So the news anchor tried again: “But history shows that when you drop the capital gains tax, the revenues go up?” Mr. Obama responded that this “might happen or it might not. It depends on what’s happening on Wall Street and how business is going.” And then he went on a riff about John McCain and the housing market.
The more I learn about Obama, the more convinced I become that he must be defeated…
