How not to fly a plane
A United pilot accidentally spilled his coffee into the controls of the aircraft he was flying and set off a hijack alarm. Humm, maybe he was trying to sober up before landing. So I guess we can give him the tippy cup award complete with bib.
Looks like there were two winners in the "BIG" lottery. I believe they each get something like $100 million each. Knowing lotteries as we do it will probably be a couple of old farts who don't need it and wouldn't know what to do with it when they get it. And I'm just sure if they're still working at the rendering plant that they'll continue working there because it's such a great place to work.
Good cop bad cop
No good image could I find for this last bit.
Now that the drunken thieves have taken back the House, the Dems will have no choice but to trade places with the Rethugs and be the party of "No". No to the defunding of programs just passed into law. No to unfunding Health Care passed just last year. No to defunding Food Safety. No to cutting out farm subsidies No to underfunding the EPA. You'll see all of these programs and agencies sit as zombies with no life or power. But they won't stop there. They've already started to undo social security by cutting withholding that pays for it. And with all the cutbacks we're seeing what it's doing to the states and their budgets. Expect worse. Much worse. Our state has already cut to the bone and it still wasn't enough. When you cut basic health care for the needy they have no choice but to head to the emergency room costing ten times as much as seeing a regular doctor. The next round of cuts estimated at $4 billion will cut into fire and police because there's nowhere else to cut. So you may just want to invest in a good fire extinguisher and a gun.
