Rolling on the floor!
And there it is!
How about: Comedians will be able to lampoon their president again! There just isn't much amusing about Prez Obama.
If JFK had signed NDAA the spooks wouldn't have had to kill all those witnesses because what went down in Dallas 11-22-63 would have been legal.
Haha Don't google me please!
I had a good laugh with this one! Newt does certainly come across as a smooth reptilian sort - reminding me of the snake in the Garden of Eden slyly and deceptively offering dangerous fruit to Eve while lulling her mind with his silver tongue. Although, Tom, you might want to recast Mr. Peanut in the role of Mitt "Nutball" Romney.
The current crop of Presidential Candidates (including the current occupant of the office) all come across as inhuman and/or robotic. The exception is the grownup of the crowd, Ron Paul, who offers an adult understanding and adult prescription for the ills of the body politic. Of course he's unelectable, as all he offers is peace and freedom. The other candidates offer peace, freedom, and their secret sauce - some claim to be Robin Hood, others attract with shiny, yet deadly toys, or doctors for all. Problem is, that to get the secret sauce you need to give up either peace or freedom to these loathsome creatures, and I for one don't want to go down that road.
Hey Tom, if you use any of my ideas, I want royalties!

Hmm, I have a giant head too! This must mean something.
The intellectual face of the Republican Party.
On a serious note:
After decades of laws and policies to curb sexual harassment, it remains prevalent (http://www.freep.com/article/20111109/FEAT…). Why?
Is it possible something is missing?
Is it possible we should consider another way to look at sexual harassment other than through the feminist lens of "male power and control," which often suggests a "lock 'em up and throw away the key" approach, an approach that has clearly failed?
Is it possible that women contribute to the problem without knowing how? (No, it's not by the way they dress.)
I recommend a reading of an in-depth analysis of the sexes' most destructive behavioral difference:
"The Sexual Harassment Quagmire" at http://battlinbog.blog-city.com/the_sexual….

Hmm, I thought that was the 60's but never mind they would still be yucky!
We had a saying in the 70's... EAT THE RICH!
