Crap you should read this Weekend (7/1)

Minnesota Shuts Down:

The state government of MinneSOta has shut down since a budget deal could not be reached by last night’s deadline. Apparently there is at least at $1.5 billion gap in the budgets presented by the Democratic Governor and the Republican Congress, and both sides aren’t even close to figuring out a plan to cut the $5 billion deficit. This is the 2nd time in 6 years MinneSOta had to close its doors, shut down government offices, kill government programs, and stop paying government workers. Roughly 23,000 of MinneSOta’s 26,000 workers will be furloughed.

For the rest of the country, this is a teaser of what could happen to the Federal Government should a Federal budget not be reached. This thing is a great “test” for two of our Republican presidential candidates who call MinneSOta home, Tim Pawlenty and Michele Bachmann. Both left this mess to run for President, and both are calling on their Republican friends back home to stay the course and not give in (because that’s their exact plan to do to our country).

Basically they’re saying “lets just shut the whole thing down because we want to ‘cut spending’ which really just means ‘figure out a smaller budget so we don’t have to tax rich people’.” Real nice for Timmy and Michele to feel for all those government employees in their state who will be without a paycheck and security.

More importantly, we are going to have to do without all the great things that MinneSOta provides us with, like…..um…..i think….nope, no one’s gonna even notice.

To Catch a Philanderer:

Turns out Karma’s a bitch, even when you’re job is putting away child molesters. Chris Hansen, the man best known for pretending to be a teenage girl to set up pedophiles and catch their entrapment attempted crimes on camera for To Catch a Predator, was caught on camera cheating on his wife with a reporter 21 years younger than him.

Hansen was away from his wife and two kids, filming in Florida, and has allegedly been cheating on his wife for about 4 months. He was caught by the National Enquirer having dinner with Kristyn Caddell, then returning to her Palm Beach pad for a sleepover. No word yet if he showed up with balloons or teddy bears, but creep mode was definitely on.

Creepy Grandpa:

Eugene Hickman didn’t know that his actions were illegal, and promised cops he would never do it again. Unfortunately for Hickman, this wasn’t the first time he was caught, and having sex with your bulldog is very illegal under Florida’s new bestiality laws. Especially when your grandson walks in on you while you’re naked and mounting the dog. Ruh-roh!

Hickman was charged with a 3rd degree felony of animal cruelty, yet no word yet on the charge for cruelty to his grandson’s eyes or psyche.

Octomom is disgusting “Disgusted”

Octomom Nadya Suleman went to In Touch because she needs money and opened up about how much she hates her 14 kids.

Remember, this the woman who was infatuated with Angelina Jolie and tried to duplicate her look and fame? Remember how she already had 6 kids she couldn’t afford and dumped on her parents, but insisted she needed to bankrupt herself financially to artificially inseminate herself? Remember how she popped out 8 of those poor little bastards and tried to milk it for fame? Yeah her.  Now she’s having some buyer’s remorse.

“Some days I have thought about killing myself. I cannot cope…Obviously, I love them – but I absolutely wish I had not had them.”

Obviously, she loves them. Oh wait, no she doesn’t.

I hate the babies, they disgust me…My older six are animals, getting more and more out of control, because I have no time to properly discipline them.”

You don’t say? I wonder whose fault it is that you don’t have time for the 6 kids. And she can’t cope? Suleman is disgusting and deserves every horrible feeling she feels. She begged for all of this and even paid to make it happen. Woe is her? Woe are the 14 poor kids who have to read this interview, and woe are the overworked grandparents. And woe is us for having to look at her trying to be sexy.

I don't know why, but I just figured she'd have a couple more boobs

 

The Decision

Sports Illustrated ran an interesting round-table discussion with some of the people who helped pull off LeBron James’ infamous “Decision”.  Its a good read for those of you who see that moment as one of the more indelible images of 2010.

It’s cool to hear what took place that day, like how Kanye West came to visit at the Boys and Girls club (and the kids liked him more than LBJ), and then hung out with James all night long afterwards.

The part that stood out most to me from this round-table is that LeBron was in great spirits when it was done. He thought everything went great, and was shocked at how negatively it was received. This just in: LeBron thought the Heat won the Finals this year, was shocked to see his Enron stock dive, still is on Myspace, thought Lone Star was a great show, and still wears an “I Love W” t-shirt.

Poznan Lanterns

On June 21 a festival took place in Poznan, Poland to commemorate the summer solstice, which is the first day of summer and also the shortest night of the year. Organized mostly through Facebook, over 8,000 Chinese Lanterns were released into the night sky. This of course made me think of my nieces as it looked straight out of Tangled, a Disney movie I saw with them (by saw I mean they sat in their seats almost the whole time) earlier in the year.

Take a look at the video below, and let your mind wander through the beauty, then to the feeling of making you feel small in this world, and eventually to the thought of  “who’s going to clean it all up?”

Have a Horny weekend.
