Politicians really tick me the hell off. I’m not sure if many have heard of the First Responders Bill that was essentially blast and denied, but the biggest slap is that the people who are First Responders have and added hurdle. They have to prove that they are not terrorist. REALLY. That is what our assholes came up with. Yet ANOTHER hurdle for paying the medical insurance that many of the First Responders have none of since it was used up trying to save lives when the terrorists attacked.
What a bunch of nut-lickers.
Had to lighten the mood a little and post this video. The funniest part is that myself and a friend of mine was joking about this on Saturday past when this EXTREMELY HOT woman made a pass at both of us.
Asbestos kills, but that does not mean there is not a profit to it, right Canada? Cannot believe that they have the gall to sell this known carcinogen to India and other countries. Canada, you suck.

Most of us are now aware of Afghanistan and what is happen in that area regarding the war, terrorist activity and production of poppy. Yes they have some of the largest poppy field in the world and now it is tearing their country apart. The US is going in and destroying their fields before the next harvest and that is costing us as Americans millions. But this is one issue that I’m not complaining about. Nearly a tenth of the population is addicted to heroin (15-64) and in Kabul is roughly 2.8 million and over 100,000 addicts in Kabul alone and growing at over 140% from 2005-2009. At this pace one of the oldest cities will be decimated in about 10 years and with that brings a tougher situation than what we have now from that region. It is the making of a takeover of a country from whom ever wants it.
Push the merger through and get PAID. Yes the person responsible for that illegal merger of Comcast and NBC that HAD worked for the FCC and HAD pushed the merger through surprising took a position with Comcast as a Senior VP. Ahh I do so love honesty in big business. I just have not seen it.

Meredith Attwell Baker serves as Acting Assistant Secretary for Communications and Information and Acting Administrator of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). NTIA is the President’s principal adviser on telecommunications and information policy. Named as Deputy Assistant Secretary in February 2007, Ms. Baker first joined NTIA as a Senior Advisor in January 2004, and also served as Acting Associate Administrator for the Office of International Affairs and on detail to the White House, Office of Science and Technology Policy.
NTIA advises and represents the Executive Branch on both domestic and international telecommunications and information policy activities. With a core mission to promote market-based policies that encourage innovation and benefit consumers, NTIA pursues the effective and efficient utilization of radiofrequency spectrum by the federal government though its management of federal spectrum use; performs cutting edge telecommunications research and engineering, including resolving technical telecommunications issues for the federal government and private sector; and administers grant programs that support infrastructure and public telecommunications facilities.
To help facilitate the nation’s historic transition to digital television, NTIA administers programs to help make the transition affordable for consumers by providing coupons to eligible households that will defray the cost of digital-to-analog converter boxes; and to support interoperable communications systems for first responders using spectrum made available by the digital transition for public safety purposes.
The commissioner’s announcement comes four months after she voted to approve a joint venture between Comcast and NBC Universal.
In a March speech on the FCC merger process, she said that, in her opinion, “the NBC/Comcast merger took too long.”
The media reform advocacy group Free Press issued a statement criticizing Baker’s move. “This is just the latest -- though perhaps most blatant -- example of a so-called public servant cashing in at a company she is supposed to be regulating,” said Free Press president and CEO Craig Aaron. “The continuously revolving door at the FCC continues to erode any prospects for good public policy.”)
