Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Dizzy Round-Up Post PicIt’s Monday and it’s April Fool’s Eve.  I am currently planning what minor prank I shall play on my children.  I’m also steeling myself for whatever pranks might be planned for me…

Rest assured, Uncle Jay has a run-down of the political hi-jinx of the past week: Uncle Jay Explains the News – March 31, 2008

Let’s take a gander at the hi-jinx in today’s Ten Post Round-Up:

1: If this is the free-market conservatives preach about, I’d say they’d got it all wrong…

Countrywide executives showered with even more moneyAMERICAblog

2: Could we be on the verge of another “Big Bang”? Apparently, some scientists want to try out a new gizmo that creates black holes. Somehow, I think Mother Nature might have a problem with that…

Uh…maybe sometimes “Because we can” isn’t enough of a reason to do somethingBrilliant at Breakfast

3: Keep your opinions to yourself if you encounter other shoppers at Best Buy…

Best Buy calls copper on unsatisfied shopperChannel Register

4: Now, if only GWB and his minions could honestly get choked up about the things that hurt the rest of America and not just themselves…

Michael Mukasey’s Tears of a ClownCrooks and Liars

5: The war in Afghanistan and the war on drugs has unintended consequences for Afghan famers…

Newsweek: Afghan Farmers Forced To Sell Their Daughters To Pay LoansThe Huffington Post

6: The NCLB rules must be really tough! Principal threatens to kill his science teachers and himself!…

Death and science scoresJoanne Jacobs

7: Most times, fact is so much more interesting than fiction. Is that “The Sound of Music”, I hear?…

Movie vs. Reality: The Real Story of the von Trapp FamilyThe National Archives

8: I knew it! I knew it! The Gays do have an agenda!…

Out On A Limb – The Gay AgendaPam’s House Blend

9: Very interesting article on “thanks” and “gratitude”. Should the oppressed be grateful to their oppressors and/or for their oppression?…

Demanding Gratitude from the OppressedSigns of the Times

10: I have the sad, miserable feeling that GWB and his henchmen would rather see the world swallowed up into a black hole than admit defeat by withdrawing troops from Iraq…

I know, I know…all the April Fools are in the White House!

Peace.

(On an up-note, if we get sucked into a black hole, we’ll likely never know what hit us…)

    Eh. Mother Nature makes tons of black holes. I don’t think she’ll mind if we pop a few out. :-) The little ones evaporate rather quickly, anyhow …

    *off to read*

  2. You know the story of that little Afghani girl is sad, but at least we’re winning the War on Drug.

    (April fools!!!)

    I plan to bury my head under the covers for April Fools Day because there are so many fools about everyday these days.
