    In fairness, that father sure looks like a hero when he takes the kids away from a dad that waterboarded them before bed every night...

    This is how they should have worded it:

    "Here you go Mr. Pres here is your prize for not starting any wars. Please keep it up!!"

    I can tell you though, I now feel WAY better about myself for accepting the "longest drive" trophy at our company golf tournament. (which I won in a fraudulent way)

    Got 3,000 Americans™ killed?

    and just think, those are 3,000 Americans that Obama's Death Panels won't have to decide the fate of.

    OK everybody, calm down.

    This is obviously just a part of the vast left wing conspiracy to assassinate Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh.

    Their heads will surely explode once they get on the air and start ranting. Just wait and see. I think Rush's show starts soon. Grab some popcorn and set the dvr.

    In his speech, he admits he just as surprised as everyone else. And he made the smart move of declaring this a "call to arms". He obviously recognizes the international community thinks its time to put up or shut up.

    I'm glad to hear that you don't play golf in any serious way, that would be so uncool.

    You guys are all overlooking one very important aspect of this:

    Obama is now going to have even more Comacho style bling.

    I don't have a hard on for obama, I did hear on the radio that sometimes they give out NPP to people as a way to motivate. (Anyone confirm this?)

    It's kinda weird the way world opinion of the USA has gone from,
    "We like you guys but your president is a f*ckwit"
    and now under Obama it's changed to,
    "Your presidents cool, but what the f*ck is up with you guys??"

    Most of that I think is brought about by the massive coverage given to tea baggers etc etc I think. :think:

    Apparently the deadline to nominate was Feb 1st. So he was actually nominated for this award after 11 *days* in office.

    Which is pretty cool.

    :D

    Ok....not sure what to make of this.

    I got this email today. It's from one of our customers. He's a Mexican operator that ferries workers to oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. I've never met him. But he has taken to sending out blanket emails to everyone in his inbox. I guess I must have been cc'ed on an email in the past. I've no idea otherwise how he has my address.

    But this is what he sent out:

    Ya know, I thought this was legit... until the end, when he mentioned "human embryo" without mentioning "Texas Pete's Hot Sauce".

    you guys are ridiculous. has he not officially passed anything on paper? no he has not. but him being elected says more to the world and impacts the world more than anything the other candidates have done. the whole yes we can ideal was one of the most influential of all time. by the united states electing an african american, that says a lot. remember, actions speak louder than words. and him being elected in and of itself has changed the world more than anyone has realized.
