fun facts for friday...
I've been *tagged* by the kewl awesome
'puppytoes' so here goes, ew boy, think she's gonna be sorry she tagged me; the cops will know where to find me now after all these years! :giggle:

6 things you really don't need to know about me...

1. Once upon a time many moons ago, when I was young, I was a hell raiser. Let me 'xplain... I remember driving to Florida from Michigan with one of my bestest girlfriends. Every time we saw *cute guys* we had to show off, of course! One of our tricks was to change drivers, not while the car was stopped, no, what would be the fun of that!?! We did it while driving...back then most cars had bench seats so one of us slid under the other on the driver's side while car was in transport, preferably through the mountains, for effect... you know!

2. Continuing with the 'many moons ago' theme... once in Florida, oh, did we have fun! Stole empty pop and beer bottles and cans from the outside containers (one of us would be the look-out while the other was the thief). So yer wonderin' what did we
need empty bottles and cans fer, or did ya already figger it out!?! CASH, OF COURSE!!

3. Okay, one more... shhhhhhhhhhhh! puleeeeeeeeeze don't tell anyone this... after we got the goods, we hunted down the cops and took them out in the 'boonies' to makeout all night long! What didya think I was gonna say!?! {grin}

4. OH, I ALMOST FORGOT THE MONSTER!! Before we left for Florida, I stole a bottle of wine from my folks' store and we went down by the lake and drank the whole thing and then peed our pants when we saw the *monster* emerge from the lake!

5. Met Bruce Maher of the Detroit Lions at the Northway Bar in Houghton Lake... he bought us drinks all night long and I got smashed! Boy, was that fun... he was a cutie!!

6. By the way, the first 5 happened before I was married... silly you for thinking otherwise! :THE END:

This was in the Talk Back
section of my hometown
paper today...
To all of you Bush supporters complaining
about the price of gasoline: Bush wants you to park your car, shut your mouth,
sit at home and praise him for saving Iraq.

Enough said!



Intense and widespread opposition to President Bush is likely to
a sharp spur driving voters to the polls in this fall's midterm elections, according to strategists in both parties, a phenomenon that could give Democrats a turnout advantage over Republicans for the first time in recent years.

A Post-ABC News
'poll' found that 59 percent of registered voters approve of their own representative, a lower number than in past months. But only 35 percent approve of the way Congress is doing its job. Forty percent said they plan to vote for a Republican in this year's House elections, and 55 percent said they will vote for a Democrat.

The "Party of Hate" garbage has started!

Here's what I just received in the mail from a Republican
State Rep. candidate:

Do You Believe...

...Marriage is a union between one man and one woman?

...Family is the foundation of our society?

...Killing the innocent is wrong?

...There is an alternative to abortion where everyone wins?

...By devaluing one human being we devalue all human life?

(the rest of the blah, blah, blah, pertains mostly to Michigan which is very interesting since the Republicans control the Senate and State Legislature)

...Raising taxes to fund pet projects or finance wasteful spending is wrong?

...The recent Supreme Court decision on private property rights and eminent domain needs to be addressed immediately? (so, okay, why haven't you!?!)

...Over taxation and over-regulation have hurt Michigan's economy?

...It's time for Lansing (our capital) to do with less so you can keep more of your hard-earned money? (ROTFLMAO!

Helllllllllo! you ARE LANSING!!)

...We need to safeguard the second amendment which gives law abiding citizens the right to "keep and bear arms"?

...Government was established to uphold justice and punish evildoers?

...It's not too late to MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

Here's a new twist scammers are using to commit identity theft... the 'jury duty scam'. Here's how it works:

The scammer calls claiming to work for the local court and claims you've failed to report for jury duty. He tells you that a warrant has been issued for your arrest.

The victim will often rightly claim they never received the jury duty notification. The scammer then asks the victim for confidential information for "verification" purposes.

Specifically, the scammer asks for the victim's Social Security number, birth date, and sometimes even for credit card numbers and other private information — exactly what the scammer needs to commit identity theft.

So far, this jury duty scam has been reported in Michigan, Ohio, Texas, Arizona, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Oregon and Washington state.

It's easy to see why this works. The victim is clearly caught off guard, and is understandably upset at the prospect of a warrant being issued for his or her arrest. So, the victim is much less likely to be vigilant about protecting their confidential information.

In reality, court workers will never call you to ask for social security numbers and other private information. In fact, most courts follow up via snail mail and rarely, if ever, call prospective jurors.

Action: Never give out your Social Security number, credit card numbers or other personal confidential information when you receive a telephone call.

This jury duty scam is the latest in a series of identity theft scams where scammers use the phone to try to get people to reveal their Social Security number, credit card numbers or other personal confidential information.

It doesn't matter *why* they are calling — all the reasons are just different variants of the same scam.

Protecting yourself is simple: Never give this info out when you receive a phone call.

Weigh in... what stories have you heard and/or how has identity theft personally affected you?

Pay special attention to the wording and spelling. If you know

the bible even a little, you'll find this hilarious! It comes from a Catholic elementary school test where kids were asked questions about the old and new testaments.

10. the seventh commandment is thou shalt not admit adultery.

11. Moses died before he ever reached canada. Then joshua led the hebrews in the battle of geritol.

12. The greatest miricle in the bible is when joshua told his son to stand still and he obeyed him.

13. David was a hebrew king who was skilled at playing the liar. He fought the finkelsteins, a race of people who lived in biblical times.

14. Solomon, one of davids sons, had 300 wives and 700 porcupines.

15. When mary heard she was the mother of jesus, she sang the magna carta.

17. Jesus was born because mary had an immaculate contraption.

18. St. John the blacksmith dumped water on his head.

19. Esus enunciated the golden rule, which says to do unto others before they do one to you. He also explained a man doth not live by sweat alone.

Alberto Gonzales spoke before law students at Georgetown today, justifying illegal, unauthorized surveillance of US citizens; but during the course of his speech the students in class did something pretty gutsy and brave. They got up from their seats and turned their backs to him. Additional students came into the room wearing black cowls and carrying a simple banner written on a sheet.

Fortunately for him, it was a brief speech followed by a panel discussion that basically ripped his argument in half. And, as one of the people on the panel said, "When you're a law student, they tell you that if you can't argue the law, argue the facts. They also tell you if you can't argue the facts, argue the law. If you can't argue either, apparently, the solution is to go on a public relations offensive and make it a political issue... to say over and over again "it's lawful" and to think that the American people will somehow come to believe this if we say it often enough. In light of this, I'm proud of the very civil disobedience that was shown here today." - David Cole, Georgetown University Law Professor

It was a good day for dissent.

ABC News producer suspended over e-mail ~
Message from 2004 states ‘Bush makes me sick’...

NEW YORK - The executive producer of “Good Morning America Weekend” has been given a one-month suspension after an 18-month-old e-mail critical of President Bush was leaked to the press.

ABC News made the move Friday, though spokesmen at the network declined comment.

John Green’s e-mail dated Sept. 30, 2004, apparently was written during a George W. Bush-John Kerry debate. One read: “Are you watching this? Bush makes me sick. If he uses the ’mixed messages’ line one more time I’m going to puke.”

The e-mail appeared two weeks ago on the Drudge Report and has been the talk of the Internet. Green apologized well before the suspension occurred. He has been executive producer of the show since 2004, when it began.

You know me by now that I can't let this one pass without asking the question...

federal judge agrees: Sexy signs just have no place near the highway.

The case came before the court when John Haltom, who owns 10 stores that sell lingerie, sex toys and adult videos in six states, filed a lawsuit last year against the attorney general's office.

He took issue with a law that prohibits most signs for sexually oriented businesses from being posted within a mile of the highway. Any business that devotes more than 10 percent of their display space to sexually oriented merchandise faced the

Haltom said the billboard law is too broad and curtails his right to commercial speech. He also said that while his businesses devote between 10 percent and 25 percent of its display space to sexually oriented items, the law was too broad to consider his locations as adult businesses.

But Fenner, who has upheld the law in past challenges, disagreed.

He also said that the law bans advertising for a store's sexually oriented business, not the store itself. It could still post billboards advertising its non-adult items, if it chose.

State Sen. Matt Bartle, who spearheaded the legislation, said he was confident the law would survive, but predicted more challenges.

Weigh in... what do you think of the law? How do you feel when you are driving along and encounter sexually oriented billboards near the highway?

Now for some weekend fun...

A man goes into a store and asks the clerk for some "Polish Sausage."

The clerk looked at him and asked, "Are you Polish?"

The guy, clearly offended, says, "Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something. If I asked you for Italian Sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?

"Or, if I asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?

"Or if I asked you for a Kosher Hot Dog, would you ask me if I was Jewish?

"Or, if I asked you for a Taco, would you ask me if I was Mexican?

"Would ya, huh? Would Ya?"

The clerk says, "Well no."

"And if I asked you for some Irish Whiskey, would you ask me if was Irish?

"What about Canadian Bacon, would you ask me if I was Canadian?"

"Well, I probably wouldn't."

With self-indignation, the guy says: "Well, all right then, why did you ask me if I'm Polish just because I asked for Polish Sausage?"

The clerk replies: "Because you're at Home Depot."
