    RNC does not want you TEA Party types to speak.

  2. Artist who created Rolling Stones “tongue” logo says Mick is a “very bad guy.” Not hard to believe.

    Another 1st-hand asshole celebrity story we just got during dinner last night:

    Terry Crews, of the Expendables, etc., originally from Flint, MI, had an NFL career before becoming an action movie star. His daughter graduated recently from Azusa Pacific University near LA and one of her roommates is a close family friend (of ours) who is a starving artist in the LA area. Like many young girls seeking jobs in LA, they live 4-or-5-to-an-apartment on Raman noodles. Recently Terry’s daughter invited her college friends out to a celebration dinner at an expensive LA restaurant with the family. They looked at the menu and realized they couldn’t afford anything on it, so they all got bouillon and had to pool resources to pay for it. The daughter didn’t notice. Through the night, Terry and his entourage stayed at the end of the big table and didn’t acknowledge his daughter’s friends or offer to pay for their meals or even cast a glance in their direction. I guess you can take a guy out of Flint, Mich, but you can’t take the Flint out of the guy.

  3. More from Sharyl Attkisson on the dirty media complex:
    “I’ve been wanting to write about the unseen influences on the media by coordinated, paid factions, whether they’re from political, corporate or other special interests, the tactics they use to manipulate the images we see, not just in the news but on Facebook, Wikipedia, or fake Twitter accounts. It’s become a way of life and I don’t think the public is aware of how much nearly everything you see today may be influenced, in some fashion, by a paid interest that wants you to think something.” – former CBS News Reporter Sharyl Attkisson

    • Actually a fine looking dog. Reminds me of the John Wayne movie Big Jake where his border-collie-trail-dog was named “dog.” I’ve been trying to find that on DVD for a long time, but no luck.

  4. Mama Robinson apparently not making any friends in China.

  6. Iran declares Christians a threat to national security. But not as bad as Jews. Dogs and Irish next on list.
