"In an effort to curtail health costs, the Food and Drug Administration is now considering allowing the purchase of drugs without a prescription. You know what that means? One day Americans could actually be able to buy marijuana without ever seeing a doctor." – Jay Leno
"Police in Fort Wayne, Indiana, arrested a man for allegedly driving three blocks with four young children strapped to the hood of his car. Good to see Mitt Romney spending some time with the family, huh?" – Jay Leno
"France has a new president. He is Socialist François Hollande. He defeated Conservative French President Sarkozy in a presidential run-off yesterday. Of course, Nicolas Sarkozy handed over power in the traditional French manner. He surrendered." – Jay Leno
Following is the picture causing the controversy, find your own reason for the black stuff leaking out of the side of the building, which is water. Personally, I like that they are merely keeping their official cactus garden hydrated... The picture was printed sideways:
Dissing the military is always a difficult thing to do, for many young people its a decent career choice. The main problem is that we get men and women at the age of 18, when they are still in puberty and without any life experience. In a war situation, they are thrown into an unfamiliar country and live in danger during their entire time there, often having to kill another person or watch others being killed, an experience that haunts them the rest of their lives...
In the middle of preparing to go to Afghanistan, and earlier Iraq, many young officers got to take a class on how to eliminate all 1.4 billion Muslims as a last resort. It was taught, from 2004 up until last month by Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, and this week the top Pentagon Generals were so publicly embarrassed that they were forced to shut down the class and put Mr Dooley under investigation for spreading hate crimes. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink... This from Wired's Danger Room, which broke the story and published some of the class presentations: "The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff recently ordered the entire U.S. military to scour its training material to make sure it doesn’t contain similarly hateful material, a process that is still ongoing. But the officer who delivered the lectures, Army Lt. Col. Matthew A. Dooley, still maintains his position at the Norfolk, Virginia college, pending an investigation. The commanders, lieutenant colonels, captains and colonels who sat in Dooley’s classroom, listening to the inflammatory material week after week, have now moved into higher-level assignments throughout the U.S. military.
For the better part of the last decade, a small cabal of self-anointed counterterrorism experts has been working its way through the U.S. military, intelligence and law enforcement communities, trying to convince whoever it could that America’s real terrorist enemy wasn’t al-Qaida — but the Islamic faith itself. In his course, Dooley brought in these anti-Muslim demagogues as guest lecturers. And he took their argument to its final, ugly conclusion.
“We have now come to understand that there is no such thing as ‘moderate Islam,’” Dooley noted in a July 2011 presentation (.pdf), which concluded with a suggested manifesto to America’s enemies. “It is therefore time for the United States to make our true intentions clear. This barbaric ideology will no longer be tolerated. Islam must change or we will facilitate its self-destruction.”
Already, conservative Congressmen are moving to allow Mr Dooley's class to be reinstalled, and probably give him a promotion... I'm sure there are similar types of classes being taught on eliminating all Christians and non-believers in the Middle East, perhaps in Saudi Arabia by some Wahabi's or anywhere else from Afghanistan to Somalia by your nearest al Qaeda franchise...
