Here's the link Bitches ...

Happiest States in the Union

They did a survey of the happiest states in our union. The West was the best & the East was the least. Como siempre. This is not a surprise to me. I speak to customers form the south all day long. It's my job. There is a difference.

Fuck political correctness.

These people are part of the problem. They're dumber than shit & apparently that's not enough to make them happy. What is it they say ? Ignorance is bliss ? Well if that were true there'd be some blissed out, country fried, honky tonkin' going on tonight ... but instead they're sad.

I'd have to disagree with Utah being # 1 on this list. Having been there before I can say I have never seen a more repressed people. They were scary to me having grown up in Los Angeles. Whole time I was there never saw one Asian person. What kiind of shit is that ?

West Virginia was last on the list. They're probably unhappy like an illegitmate red headed step child bcuz they're not an actual part of Virginia.

And the bluegrass state of Kentucky was 49th, with Mississippi 48th on the list.

From the article :

"In general, highest well-being scores came from states in the West while the lowest were concentrated in the South."

Corporate B.S.

Eat This Not That

Making a list of America's Healthiest fast food restaurants is like making a list of bullets likely to do the least amount of damage should you happen to put one thru your head ....

"The .22 caliber seem to cause the least amount of brain damage & bleeding compared with a shotgun blast"

It's all one big fucking commercial for evil corporations like Mcdonald's & Taco Bell (which both got a B+ !!!) ... no where are their unjust labor practices or impact on the environment mentioned ..... Americans are sick & obese & these restaurants are a definite part of the problem ...

Eat This, Not That by David Zinczenko, with Matt Goulding

Eating out invariably raises a number of tricky questions: sit-down or drive-thru? Burgers or pizza? Thin or stuffed crust? Choosing one over the other could mean saving hundreds of calories in a single meal, and up to 50 pounds of flab in the course of a year and countless health woes over the course of a lifetime. That’s why Eat This, Not That! launched an investigation and put 66 major chain restaurants under the nutritional microscope—so that you and your family can continue to eat out, but do so knowing the types of insider tips and savvy strategies that can help melt fat all year long. And the good news is that many fan favorites scored top marks!

On being a musician

St. Peter at the Pearly GatesSaint Peter is checking ID's at the Pearly Gates, and first comes a Texan. "Tell me, what have you done in life?" says St. Peter.The Texan says, "Well, I struck oil, so I became rich, but I didn't sit on my laurels--I divided all my money among my entire family in my will, so our descendants are all set for about three generations."

St. Peter says, "That's quite something. Come on in. Next!"

The second guy in line has been listening, so he says, "I struck it big in the stock market, but I didn't selfishly just provide for my own like that Texan guy. I donated five million to Save the Children."

"Wonderful!" says Saint Peter. "Come in. Who's next?"

The third guy has been listening, and says timidly with a downcast look, "Well, I only made five thousand dollars in my entire lifetime."

"Heavens!" says St. Peter. "What instrument did you play?"

Maybe God is a girl

Maybe it is true what they say ... that god is a girl ..... & maybe she throws like one ...

PASADENA, Calif. – An asteroid about the size of one that blasted Siberia a century ago just buzzed by Earth.
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory reported that the asteroid zoomed past Monday morning.
The asteroid named 2009 DD45 was about 48,800 miles from Earth. That is just twice the height of some telecommunications satellites and about a fifth of the distance to the Moon.
The space ball measured between 69 feet and 154 feet in diameter. The Planetary Society said that made it the same size as an asteroid that exploded over Siberia in 1908 and leveled more than 800 square miles of forest.
Most people probably didn't notice the cosmic close call. The asteroid was only spotted two days ago and at its closest point passed over the Pacific Ocean near Tahiti.
If our economy is in meltdown status & it is so important that we right this ship b4 we turn into Costa Rica .. Then why are we hearing so much from politicians & so little from Economists ?

And why do republicans seem to diametrically oppose their opinions & quote them so little ?

And who votes for these motherfuckers every year ?

America: The blind leading the blind.

10 Things you should know about Obama's Plan

10 things you should know about Obama's plan (but probably don't)
The plan:

1. Makes a $634 billion down payment on fixing health care that will go a long way toward paying for a more efficient, more affordable health care system that covers every single American.

2. Reduces taxes for 95% of working Americans. And if your family makes less than $250,000, your taxes won't go up one dime.

3. Invests more than $100 billion in clean energy technology, creating millions of green jobs that can never be outsourced.

4. Brings our troops home from Iraq on a firm timetable, finally bringing the war to a close—and freeing up almost ten billion dollars a month for domestic priorities.

5. Reverses growing income inequality. The plan lets the Bush tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans expire and focuses on strengthening the middle class.

6. Closes multi-billion-dollar tax loopholes for big oil companies.

7. Increases grants to help families pay for college—the largest increase ever.

8. Halves the deficit by 2013. President Obama inherited a legacy of huge deficits and an economy in shambles, but his plan brings the deficit under control as soon as the economy begins to recover.

9. Dramatically increases funding for the SEC and the CFTC—the agencies that police Wall Street.

10. Tells it straight. For years, budgets have used accounting tricks to hide the real costs of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Bush tax cuts, and too many other programs. Obama's budget gets rid of the smokescreens and lays out what America's priorities are, what they cost, and how we're going to pay for them.

This is the change we voted for. President Obama has done his part, now we need to do ours.

Can you pass this on to your personal network ?
