Banning A Logo?



 Mongols can no longer wear patches bearing the motorcycle gang's insignia following what appears to be an unprecedented court order stripping them of their trademarked logo....It is believed to be the first case in the nation in which the government has sought to take control of a gang's identity ó via its logo ó through a court order.


Subject: Palin and the kids



Although I'm firmly for the Obama ticket it does sadden me that Palin is being attacked for taking her kids with her on trips. I give her props for her commitment to her family, and yes if one is elected I believe you should be able to lead with your kids. We are not the most progressive country on practical family rights, only on conservative christian family rights. This does need to change. I sure as heck don't want her as V.P. but I'll give her all the credit in the world for looking after her kids.


Thanks for writing Pat. I also have no problem with the children of Gov. Palin traveling with their Mom for whatever reason. I believe kids need their Mom even if she is a governor. I have a problem when Gov Palin changes government documents and lies about the role of her children in the very same month she is chosen to be McCain's running mate.


AP article snip: The AP also reported that Palin ordered the children's travel expense forms changed in August to add language claiming that they performed official state business on the trips. Alaska law allows governors to charge the state for their family's travel if they conduct state business. State Finance Director Kim Garnero said the governor's staff has the authority to make that determination.

But event organizers told the AP they were surprised when the girls showed up, and some said they had no role.


My, my, my she's caught in another lie.


Isn't this a more important news story than the GOP spending $150K on field dressing Sarah Palin?

Pirate Update



NAIROBI, Kenya Ė Food and water are running low on the Ukrainian arms ship hijacked by Somali pirates, and a pirate spokesman warned Thursday if the ship was attacked by NATO forces its 20-man crew would be among those killed.

Spokesman Sugule Ali also mocked comments by Tomex Team, the firm operating the MV Faina cargo ship, which said it has accumulated only $1 million toward the $20 million ransom the pirates initially demanded.

"That is worthless," he said. "It would only pay for several nights' stay in a hotel!"

Why did the chicken cross the road?


BARACK OBAMA: The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a change!  All the chickens are ready for change!  Even the road is ready for change.


JOHN MC CAIN: My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in dialogue with  the chickens on the other side of the road.  The chicken has prepared his whole life to take on the job of crossing this road.  Unfortunately he has waited until he is very old, and has selected an unqualified hen to take over for him in case he doesn't make it.


SARAH PALIN: I am not going to answer the question the way reporters might like to hear it -- but how I know Joe Sixpack and hockey moms want to hear it.    What's important is that we don't look backward to where the chicken has been, but  look forward. We need to view the chicken as a maverick who has a bold plan for crossing that road -- a road that  I can see from my house, so this gives me real experience to answer this question.


JOE BIDEN: :The chicken crossed the road to get to the other side.  I hope by giving the correct answer, this is not seen as a putdown of Sarah Palin's intelligence or that of her followers.


HILLARY CLINTON: As First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken cross the road. But this really isn't about me: Although my experience makes me uniquely qualified to ensure  that every chicken in this country gets the chance it deserves to cross that road in their lifetime. 


GEORGE W. BUSH:  The chicken crossed the road for freedom. Every chicken must make a decision whether he is really with us or with the terrorists.  There is no middle ground here. 
  As I explained at the UN, the chicken was part of our intelligence to locate weapons of mass destruction on the other side of the road. 
BILL CLINTON: I did not cross a road with that chicken. (pause) What is your definition of chicken?
AL GORE: The chicken crossed the road on the internet, which I invented.


JOHN KERRY: Although I voted to let the chicken cross the road, I am now against it! 

: This chicken won't realize that he must first deal with the problem on this side of the road before it goes after the problem on the other side of the road. What we need to do is help him realize how stupid he's acting by not taking on his current problems before adding new problems.
 OPRAH: Well, I understand that the chicken is having problems, which is why he wants to cross this road so bad. So instead of having the chicken learn from his mistakes and take falls, which is a part of life, I'm going to give this chicken a special gift -- a new car so that he can just drive across the road and not live his life like the rest of the chickens.
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN: We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed to have access to the other side of the road to talk to it and ask the question.

 NANCY GRACE: That chicken crossed the road because he's guilty! You can see it in his beady eyes and the way he walks.

The chicken crossed the road looking for illegal immigrants on the other side of the road, to make sure it was not stealing the job of a decent, hardworking American.
 MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer' s Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.


JERRY FALWELL: The chicken crossed the road because it is gay! Can't you people see the plain truth? That's why they call it the other side. Yes, my friends, that chicken is gay. . I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media whitewashes with seemingly harmless phrases like the other side.That chicken should not be crossing the road. It's as plain and as simple as that.
 JOHN LENNON: Imagine all the chickens of the world crossing the road together, in peace!


  BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken 2008, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook. Internet Explorer is an integral part of eChicken 2008. This new platform is much more stable and will never crash or need to be rebooted.
 ALBERT EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road, or did the road move beneath the chicken?
 COLONEL SANDERS: Darn - I missed one.


 DICK CHENEY:   I got it!

In this photo released by the Florida Keys News Bureau, a six-toed cat named 'Hairy Truman,' walks on a table Thursday, Sept. 25, 2008 in Ernest Hemingway's one-time study at the Ernest Hemingway Home and Museum in Key West, Fla. Hemingway Home officials announced that the United States Department of Agriculture had granted the museum an Animal Welfare License to permit legal exhibition of about 50 resident cats. The license culminates an almost five-year dispute between the USDA and the museum that might have resulted in the loss or caging of the famous felines, many that have six toes and descended from a cat given to Hemingway in 1935.
