It's WTF Thursday!

Ex-California Governor Jerry Brown is thinking of running ... for governor?!

San Diego Democratic women are highly dangerous beasts! As are pastors in Texas. They are the worst!

Explains why Bin Laden wanted to attack the US. He visited Indiana and Los Angeles. Sorry about that, guys....

Wonderfully awfully ironic ads from the past.

We knew this just from seeing the photos:

Israel inflicted "wanton destruction" in the Gaza Strip during its 22-day war on the coastal enclave in December and January, Amnesty International, the London-based human rights group has said.

In a 117-page report released on Thursday, Amnesty cited evidence that Israeli troops put children and other civilians in harm's way "by forcing them to remain in or near houses which they took over and used as military positions".

I really think Israel crossed the line on this and has lost an immense amount of worldwide support. The 'victims' have become the very thing that victimized them in the first place: bloodthirsty heartless thugs.

Banks and corporations are trying to tell us everything is fine and on the mend, we can go back to spending wildly. Odd that our 'recovery' seems to be a jobless one:
The American economy lost 467,000 jobs in June and the unemployment rate edged up to 9.5 percent in a sobering indication that the most painful downturn since the Great Depression has yet to release its hold.
And Europe hits a ten year high:
Unemployment in the 16-nation euro zone has climbed to 9.5 per cent, its highest rate in a decade, EU data show.

More than 15 million people are out of work across the zone, with around 273,000 jobs lost in May, the Eurostat data agency estimated.

The increase in jobless was expected, with the eurozone experiencing a 2.5 per cent drop in output in the first quarter of 2009.

"Deep and extended economic contraction, depressed business confidence and deteriorating profitability is pushing unemployment up sharply across the eurozone," Howard Archer, an economist at consultants IHS Global Insight, said.

The May eurozone unemployment rate was up from 9.3 per cent in April and 7.4 per cent in May 2008.
But if you do have a job...there is no escape from your office!

Ants are taking over
the wooorrrrrlllddd!

And the most WTF moment of all: Cafferty asks: Good idea to allow guns in bars?

Why are we not allowed to bring open beer containers and firearms into the post office? And now the banks won't let us either! It's a slippery slope I tell you.

And soon they won't let us shoot our bazookas off to celebrate the 4th of July! What is the country coming to??

Mike Goldman said...

Next thing you know they'll add a well regulated militia clause to the second amendment! Zany!

ellroon said...

And who needs regulations on guns, anyway? We need to let everyone carry! That way, when we're at church or at the mall, someone yells,"He's gotta gun!", we can all start shooting and keep ourselves safe!

Mike Goldman said...

And why stop with adults, children can be victims of crimes too, we should start arming everyone as soon as they are old enough to pull a trigger. That way we will all be much safer.

Makes total sense! Toddlers need to express their displeasure with a bang!

Mike Goldman said...

It's really unfortunate that the Tasers for Tots program is so underfunded.

Damn that Obama administration!
