.......DAM NEWS.......








This is more of my take on the news...

Wisconsin is now entered into the battle of'home of the hamburger'..As you might recall Athens, Texas has always been the home of the hamburger..then puny New Haven, Conn(the birth place of George W. Bush)jumped in and said ...oh no..we are the home of the hamburger(carpetbaggers)..and now Seymour, Wisconsin has made it a 3 way race.All three of them claim to be the birthplace of the hamburger..Bullpucky!
In the early 1880's, Fletcher Davis sold "meat sandwiches" at Athens' town square..The other two places didn't start putting out(more than hamburgers I'm sure) till 1885 or later..so there..Let New Haven go back to bragging'(and they would too) about being the hometown of George W. Bush, and Seymour, Wisconsin can go back to being....well....Seymour,Wisconsin as they don't have anything else to brag about..

STUDY LINKS HPV TO FORMS OF THROAT CANCER.
Seems like Paris Hilton has more to worry about then going to jail for 45 days...as she's been down on everything but the Titanic...
They've discovered that giving blow jobs can lead to cancer of the throat..Dust off your knees Paris...it's dangerous to your health.

There is some great news coming out of Oklahoma..
OKLAHOMA IMMIGRANT LAW ON BOOKS
Oklahoma Gov.Brad Henry on Tuesday(last week) signed into law legislation that backers say is the nation's most meaningful attempt to deny jobs and public benefits to illegal immigrants.
GODDESS BLESS OKLAHOMA...

FDA MAY GET MORE POWERFUL..As Senate OK's larger role for agency on drug safety, labels, ads.
Yeah, that makes me sleep a whole lot better now that the Fox is not only in the hen house..he's on steroids..The Senate voted 93-1 Wednesday (last) to give the Food and Drug Administration new power to police drug safety, order changes in drug labels, regulate advertising and restict the use and distribution of medicines found to pose serious risks to consumers..
Why does that send shivers up and down my spine?
Someone get me a Hamburger..

IT'S OFFICIAL......HELL HAS FROZEN OVER..
FORMER FOES UNITE IN N. IRELAND.
Belfast, Northern Ireland..
Paying tribute Tuesday(last) to the thousands of victims in one of Europe's bloodiest sectarian conflicts, the leaders of Northern Ireland drew a formal line under decades of histility and strife, reestablishing a power-sharing local authority of once implacable foes.
Well, fuckme till shamprocks shoots out my ass..
I hope this is the real deal and the next step is for England to 'step away from Ireland'...That won't happen...but mabye Scotland will step away from England..Think the Scots have their shit together a little better then them Irish boya's do..

AND NOW FOR SOME GOOD NEWS FROM FARMERS BRANCH, TEXAS...
It's official here too..The city of Farmers Branch(outside Dallas)..have voted and 2/3's oo the population agreed and it is illegal for apartment managers to rent to illegal's... will be fined up to $500 a day for each day they rent to a family or persons that are not here legally..This has been an on going battle since before last summer...when the Mayor tried to just make it a law..that didn't work so they put it on the ballot..and the citizens have voted it in..This could be the start of something big..More cities are expected to have similar laws..The people in Farmers Branch said they were tired of waiting for the Government to do something about the illegal alien problem, so they are taking care of it themselves...
YEAH....FARMERS BRANCH....
Last but not least...
TORNADO REVIVES WORRY OVER NATIONAL GUARD.
War deployments, gear shorfalls concern Congress,governors.
Chicago...As wildfires, floods and tornados batter the nation, the readiness of the National Guard to deal with those disasters, as well as potential terrorist assaults,is so depleted by deployments to foreign wars and equipment shortfalls that Congress may act.(excuse me..but...it's about fucking time...hurry the fuck up...)
Lawmakers are considering curtailing the president's powers over the Guard and requiring the Defense Department to analyze how prepared the country is for domestic emergencies.
The debate over the state of the National Guard has been intensifying for several years, but a powerful toranado in Kansas this month has spun the popic back into the spotlight.
When the small farming community of Greensburg was effectively wiped off the map, leaving 11 people in the area dead and miles of rubble to be searched and cleared, Kansas Gov.Kathleen Sebelius was direct in her explanation for why the response had not been faster. The policies of the federal government, she said, had left the Kansas National Guard understaffed and underequipped.
Gov. Sebelius' comments infuriated the Bush Administration, which countered that the vast majority of her state's Guard members were available to be called up and that she would be provided any equipment she lackes as soon as she requested it.
The bitter exchange represented a debate familar to governors across the U.S., many whom have feared and predicted that a castrophe could find their National Guard units woefully hard-pressed to react to mass casualities or chaos after four years in Iraq.
The other hot-button issue between the governors adn the president regarding the National Guard involves the Insurrection Act, the law that governs when the National Guard can be "federalized"for domestic law enforcement without consent of a governor.
A 2006 revision to the act expanded the president's power to assume control of the Guard during domestic events, which governors say threatens to derail state disaster planning and response.Sens.Patrick Leahy,D.Vt.,and Kit Bond, R.Mo.,co-chairs of the Senate National Guard Caucus, introduced a bill to repeal the changes..
Write them...write them many letters telling them to vote it in and bring our boys home..
(the Chicago Tribune/The Associated Pres contributed to this report.)
ok,I'm crawling down off my soap box...sigh*
think it's time for a nap..

I thought Hamburg Germany was the home of the Hamburgrer.? Those FDA guys get high paying jobs at pharmacuitical companies, if they were kind in their regulation of that companies drugs. That shit should be illegal!

Allan said...

The world's in a sorry state.
Nowhere to get away...sigh.

(i think Tex is right about the burger)

I'm wondering if Paris would go down on Dubya when Hell freezes over. Because if that was her stipulation, now's her chance!

the rube said...

the irish make peace all the time but when they wake up the next morning with a pounding head, the peace is usually over.

JACKIESUE said...

I'm so glad that you are here. It has been so long since I have heard, watched, or read any news, sometimes I feel like I'm out of touch...yeah I know...
It's great to know that your a one stop catch up on world news and also have the enjoyment of your rants...keep up the good work :)

Heidi said...

There's no way out of the mess W.-Cheney got us in.

It all seems so hopeless at times, I don't even think it would help to get a Democrat in the White House.

I hope the end of the world comes soon.

BBC said...

I could fucking care less where the hamburger was born.

I could fucking care less where Paris fucking Hilton was born because she is a fucking idiot.

I could fucking care less if this country fails because it was just an experiment that went wrong anyway.

But sure, document those that come here for work and make them pay taxes and all that like the rest of us.

The work must be here or they wouldn't come here. The down side to that of course is that the price of your food will go up.

Hey, if you are Goddess don't you love them? I don't care if they come here. They do work no one else wants to do.

Complicated isn't it? Hugs.

Unknown said...

You know that Texas has to be home of the hamburger because of all the cattle men there! As for the rest, if I ignore them will they just go away? I've been trying this with Dubya and damn it he refuses to dissapear. I believe we should all get up a collection for a hit man..........

mckait said...

We will just keep giving the government more power, until we have no rights left.
What rights do we have left anyway.. I am trying to remember...

Irish thing ... interesting...

how the hell are ya, anyway?

Normy said...

I always thought Texas was the home of everything BEEF, be it hamburgers or ribeyes or barbecue... Wisconsin already has their cheese, I mean c'mon!

Paris Hilton undoubtably has more diseases than a shithouse rat... I bet there's about a three-foot radius around her that is the 'contagious zone.' It would almost be funny to see her get herpes or warts or cancer in her throat, if she hasn't already...

Good for Farmer's Branch... more things like that need to be done EVERYWHERE!

JACKIESUE said...

ollady:yup..I love love love the news..even when it's bad..gives me something to bitch about.
HMHH:I think we should fire all them sonsabitches and start from scratch...a voter revolt would be nice..
BBC:I'm not exactly sure why you come here if what I post about is so boring to you...but I figure your just an obnoxious old asshole that finds commenting negative things on peoples blogs a way to make you feel better about yourself..so BBC....fuckyou...and oh yeah....hugs..
Junebugg:yeah, how can two yankee cities one only known for the birhtplace of the worse president ever and another city in a state only known for 'cheese'..try to be known for hamburgers...dipshits..
yeah, i'm with you...
Kath:how am i?...well, for a chubby broad I don't sweat much..

Pat & Reg said...

Maybe Texas could be the hamburger capital and Wisconsin could be the cheeseburger capital. That way, everyone is happy and everyone's reputation is intact!

Nit Wit said...

The hamburger was created in Texas and then perfected by Babs Dad. I still dream of getting one in the mail.
The real reason the FDA is getting more power is to help it crush the new surge in on-line drug places now taking the price gouging monopolies’ business away.
The Gump has gone on record as saying that we will never get out of Iraq as long as he is the Decider. That way his party can in a few years shift blame for his monumental fuckups to the other party after they throw all the bums out.
Better watch out. I hear the Devil is walking the earth full time right now. He refuses to spend time in Hell Since Falwell moved in this morning.

I just spit pop all over my keyboard. Yellowdog Grannie, I've said it before and I'll say it again: YOU F*CKING ROCK!!!

JACKIESUE said...

will come by and see ya..missed ya kiddo..
nitwit:yup...your right...babs dad has taken athens little meat sandwich and turned it into a work of art...
I actually laughed out loud when they interupted my soap opera today to tell me he croaked...should have felt bad...but i didn't..

Anonymous said...

I now get all my news from this blog. Seems a waste of my time to have to wade through what other media give us when you zero in on what is important and make me laugh at the same time.

Nit Wit said...

Always keep spare keyboards around if your going to read Jackiesue, I do...

Pat & Reg said...

Do Californians qualify as Yankees? What about Southern Californians? And uh, I hate to point this out but doesn't our illustrious president come from Texas? (Dodging the slap that I KNOW is heading for my head!!!)

JACKIESUE said...

reg:ARGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHG!...NO HE DOES NOT 'COME' FROM TEXAS...
he was born in New Haven, conn...went to school in texas..but went to yale(where he was a fucking 'cheerleader'...) and his entire family are fucking yankees...(anyone not born in texas is a yankee)..and he is the only one that has effected a texas accent..the rest of them sound like they are from conn..which is where they are from...and as I have always said..there is an expression that fits someone like bush..who is not a texan but aspires to be...'all hat...and no cattle'....

Beansidhe said...

Yup, we now have a Scottish Nationalist as our First Minister in our devolved Scottish Parliament, so we're a teeny-weeny bit nearer independence.....that and the fact that the oil has nearly run out, Tony and his cronies have fucked up and removed most of our military bases, 'merged' our regiments out of existence and royally screwed our agriculture and fisheries industries, I'm thinking it can't be that long til the fuckers cut us loose now. Can't wait personally!

Have you given any thought to haggis burgers percjance? ;)
