Tom DeLay Doesn’t Mind Hate Crimes

It seems that House Majority Leader Tom Delay (R-TX) doesn’t mind hate crimes as much as he minds gay marriage.

The House held a procedural vote today on the Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act, a hate crimes bill that includes crimes committed out of percieved sexual orientation. The vote, which passed 213-186, was a motion to instruct comittee members that a majority of Congressmen/women want the bill to pass.

Tom doesn’t care though. Instead of letting the bill out of committee, he’s bringing a floor-vote on the FMA. Instead of protecting American citizens from hate, he’s infliciting it on them. He knows that he can’t pass the amendment, but wants the Representatives on the record as either for or against it so he can use it in the election.

Mr. DeLay, you disgust me.

I Smell To Bad To Throw Rocks At You

According to The Independent, the Israeli Defense Force has developed a new, non-lethal crowd dispersion method.

It’s called the “skunk bomb” and can be fired from a distance into a crowd. Upon release, the bomb leaves a stench described to be much stronger than what a skunk releases and reportedly lingers on the victim for up to five years.

I Want Oprah’s Goodies! Part 2

“No dream is too wild, no surprise too impossible to pull off,”

Oprah Winfrey and General Motors gave away 276 Pontiac G6 sports sedans today. The prize was worth approximately $7 Million.

Also in today’s show, she gave away a four-year college scholarship, a $10,000 wardrobe, and a houseful of furniture and a $130,000 check to family with eight foster-children to cover their mortgage.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I want Oprah’s goodies!

Hi, my name is Jeff and I’m a random clicker

I just read an article about a new study released from Poynter Online about how many people will randomly click on a web page. Not on a link or anything “click-able” but rather just on the page.

Also today, I ran across an article by the New York Times about the future viability of Star Trek. It quotes LeVar Burton as saying:

Star Trek’s just not special enough, not anymore. They need to shut the whole thing down, wait five years, create an interest, an excitement, a hunger for it again.

While I do find this to be highly blasphemous, I must admit that he makes a good point. I enjoyed the last season of Enterprise, but it wasn’t anything special and the ending of the season finale was crap. What’s up with alien Nazis? I don’t get it. It already outlived TOS, so I say give it a good death. I have serious doubts that it would make it past four seasons and definitely don’t think it will make the standard seven.

And in closing:

Who needs missles when you can simply weed-eat someone to death?
