Yippee for US Sovereignty!!! And the Constitution!!!

The Supreme Court has ruled that international law does not trump State law.

Way to stand up to the President in defense of the Constitution!!!

So happy for this man! And disgusted by society.

A French man suffering from a horrendously disfiguring disorder has received a full face transplant, and he is so happy! I'm so happy for him!

But one quote troubles me - not because of him, but because he had occasion to say it: "They don't make fun of me anymore."

What is WRONG with people, to tease someone because of how they look - especially because of some horrid disease?!?! This poor man would be teased and harassed whenever he left the house because - apparently - people don't remember how to be nice.

He says people would faint when they saw him. How very Victorian of them.

What a bunch of horribly-mannered, selfish, heartless weaklings he must be living around.

So... I am SO happy for this poor man, but I sure wish he had a more civilized place to live in the first place!

Still here - and China's still, well, CHINA.

Had some personal things going on over the last few weeks - but what a time to be back!

The IOC is asking people not to boycott the Olympics just because of a piddly little thing like human rights.

They claim it only hurts the athletes. Hmm.

Well, whose IDIOT idea was it to have Beijing host the Olympics, anyway?

Not the athletes'...

Rockin' last night

"Hello, my name is __, and I'm an American Idol watcher."

The guys have been better as a group - and more interesting - than the girls in American Idol this year... David Archuleta is consistently great, sincere, and soulful, but one performance in particular last night was just stunning - David Cook's suh-weet version of Hello (the 80's "Hello" song that was originally titled "Goodbye" in the Idol write-up...*rolling eyes*).

At first, I was like, 'oh, they're trying to fix some guitar problems for David Cook? Sheesh, get OVER yourself...' I didn't expect anything even appreciable, and I have not been impressed with him in the past.

But WOW.


Soulful, intense, sincere, sensitive, and that's enough adjectives for now...

Seriously, if you like rock at all, you've got to check out his performance.

And as long as we're on the topic of American Idol, who cares whether another guy was a stripper before? I have nothing against people improving their station in life - Idol's definitely a step up, LOL.

But I do care if someone's a complete jerk. Something à la Danny Noriega. Here's the link to his Christmas rant, but be warned, because the video is so highly offensive in so many ways. It's just astonishing and saddening how hateful this particular individual is! It's somewhat evident on the show, but wow, that video just puts it over the top. I've got my fingers crossed for Thursday night...

Oh, now, THAT'S ridiculous.

Leave it to the ingenious Swiss - they've invented a teeny-tiny gun. It's smaller than their pocketknife! Pretty cute. The holster comes with a keyring, apparently...isn't that crazy?

But it's illegal in the US.


Because it's "too small to qualify for sporting purposes."

So unless you're theoretically going to hunt innocent animals with a gun, you can't own it? Priority-wise, I'd much rather permit the ownership of guns to fight harmful people than animals.

I won't even get into the Second Amendment's actual purpose, but wow. If you're not allowed to "brandish" a concealed weapon, it seems like this might be the most "un-brandish-able" one on the planet...
