I almost never do posts about media bias, because Ace does it to death and our readers have heard it before.

But this video really hit me.  Watch, and judge for yourself.

He says:

Homemakers are now the journalists.

Makes me think of the awesome effort being put forward by Deb at  Nice Deb or SondraK at Knowledge is Power.

It makes me think of my tea-partier wife, who reads books and goes to meetings and demonstrations, and who works so hard to make America a better place for her children, because she understands very well that they are at risk, even if they do not.  I am so proud of her.

The Euros have embraced a few fashion trends that caught my eye while over there.  First, the “half your jeans are bleached” look, like this:

Another popular favorite is the “cropped pants for guys”:

But the kids are cute.  (Run, little one, run from your future wardrobe!):

Meet Deanne Elsholz:

Hi Deanne!

Deanne, honey, face it.  You married the wrong redneck trailer trash piece of shit.

WESLEY CHAPEL — Deanne Elsholz said her husband urinated on the bathroom floor.

David Elsholz just wanted to go back to sleep.

It was almost midnight Monday at their mobile home at 5951 Woodsman Drive in the Angus Valley community.

Deputies who arrived later said the place was cluttered with Natural Light beer cans, and both husband and wife appeared to be drunk.

“What are you doing?” Deanne, 44, asked David, 50, when she heard his urine spraying the floor, according to what she told authorities.

She said her husband then slapped her about the head with a towel and, in retaliation, she threw a glass from her nightstand at his face. It hit him in the nose, a report states, and blood poured down his chest and arms.

I know what you are thinking.  You are thinking, Michael, this story just can’t get any worse.

You are wrong.

Then, Deanne “ran into the bathroom and slipped on David’s pee,” the report states.

She told deputies David kicked her in the ribs while she was on the ground, and she crawled to get her phone and called 911.

David has a slightly different spin, as you would expect.

David’s story was that he was sleeping and woke up to use the bathroom.

After urinating, he went back to bed but Deanne started yelling at him, the report states.

Of course she’s yelling, David.  At least try  to hit the bowl with, oh, maybe 80% of your stream.  That would be an acceptable effort if you’re bombed.

“David told her he didn’t want to argue and he just wanted to sleep.”

Then she hit him with the glass, he told authorities.

Deanne was deemed the aggressor in the brawl and arrested.

Are you shitting me?  He MISSED THE BOWL!

She is charged with domestic battery — something David has been charged with twice in recent years, according to the Pasco Sheriff’s Office.

HE MISSED THE BOWL!!!!!

Duuuude.

Now I consider John Moses Browning to be a highly respected patron saint of shootin’ things. I’ve read a bit about his life and he was a remarkable man. If the Mormons have him in the Lutheran Re-education Camps, I have no doubt we’ll be blasting our way out in short order. That said, ummm, no. Just don’t.

I can see the banners on Salt Lake’s Main Street: “I have a dream and a Browning Hi Power”

I’m sure we (U-tards) would knock Las Vegas off Obama’s top “Don’t go there and blow your money” spot.

Mr. Lipstick and I recently visited a friend in Arizona.  She retired, sold up, and bought herself a small ranch near Tubac.

A lot of people just love the desert, but this is the most appealing photo I could take:

People!  It’s barren scrub-land!  There’s very little water, so things can’t grow and no animal who had a choice would ever live there!

You know, there’s a reason they call some places the Badlands.

The Most Awesome Bullshit You Ever Heard February 14, 2010

Almost six minutes of it.

Seriously, you will be impressed, especially because I think the speaker sincerely thinks he is being profound.

I’m not kidding, this is Grade A bullshit.  This guy really worked on it.

Just watch until you stop laughing, because it is all the same.  Although, I kinda gotta say, the remarks on gender are almost worth waiting for.
