Centurion of Men in Tights

Quick Thoughts
* If anyone cares - I have decided that I like having randomly generated titles ... so get used to it (unless I have a reason to pick a title, in which case I will).
* It is Tuesday - which means we should all take a sec to remember to remind Kerry to sign his 180! ... and take a look @ PoliPundit's Kerry-180 Counter ... :)


News

* Afghanistan : British aide killed in drive-by
* China : may use 'non-peaceful means' to stop Taiwan 'secession'
* More SCOTUS fallout, France likely (cough) 'supporting' the US as usual, Iranian spy satellites being launched ... " Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, creating a new job market for hit men under the age of 18" - hahha, well said!
* Laughing is good for your arteries, blood flow
* Teresa says the vote was hacked ... naturally, she has no evidence or logical basis for this ... another 'person' who cannot accept the fact that we didn't elect her waffling, loser, traitorous husband ... :)
* Senate (rightly) defeats (both) minimum wage increase proposals ... increasing the minimum wage is completely the wrong answer, and the political aspect is largely driven by union backers whose already inflated hourly rates are typically based on the minimum wage ... and More thoughts on Minimum Wage ... quotes one of our favorite moonbat punching bags, Abigail ... and on a related note " 'Cowardly lions in the GOP?' ... (cough)Arlen Specter(cough) ... "With Republicans like these, who needs Democrats?"

* UN reaffirms anti-cloning stance
* Mexico is worried that the Minutemen will be rough on the illegals trying to enter the US ... here is a thought : if the govt is worried about them stop them from leaving their country, or more specifically - stop them from entering ours! ... meanwhile, legal immigrants are always welcome
* Clinton back into the OR ... should be quick op ... as much as I disagree with his Politics, I hope he comes through OK.

Don't jobs get in the way of your schedule just a little bit? ... and more relevant thoughts here ... "at some point they’ll actually have to be for something , rather than just against everything" ... and and they lie to their 'base'
* Man over machine - robo-muscles just not cutting it (yet)
