Dizzy’s Ten Post Round-Up

Cheeseburgers, tomatoes, and porn! What more could you want to read about in today’s Ten Post Round-Up? 1. Al Dente: Almost (In)Edible Photo: Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheeseburgers

From flickr, via…THE DEVIL. Either that, or it’s from a Google cafeteria in New York. Apparently they serve Krispy Kreme bacon cheeseburgers, a.k.a Luther Burgers.

Since something or everything is going to kill you eventually, you may as well go out with a smile on your face…

2. Crooks and Liars: Feds Use “Terrorist Liaison Officers” in Colorado

Hundreds of police, firefighters, paramedics and even utility workers have been trained and recently dispatched as “Terrorism Liaison Officers” in Colorado and a handful of other states to hunt for “suspicious activity” – and are reporting their findings into secret government databases.

Home, sweet, home…

3. duckplops – Nation Buys Porn With Bush “Stimulus” Money

Study shows plenty of inflation.

“An independent market-research firm, AIMRCo (Adult Internet Market Research Company), has discovered that many websites focused on adult or erotic material have experienced an upswing in sales in the recent weeks since checks have appeared in millions of Americans’ mailboxes across the country.

Proof that those checks are stimulating something…

4. Firedoglake:Turning Obama Into A Punchline: How Democrats Can Lose

Once upon a time there was a candidate who was 17 points ahead of his foe. The election, it seemed, was his.

His name was Dukakis, and he lost that election to George Bush, Sr.

Or, more accurately, he lost it to Lee Atwater, Rove’s mentor. By the time Atwater got through with him, Dukakis wasn’t even a respected politician anymore, he was a punchline.

Yes, this race is Obama’s to lose (that Republican mud has a tendency to be very sticky…)

5. InformationWeek: AOL Increasing Dial-Up Fees

Subscribers who are willing to give up phone support can keep the lower rate, but they must notify the company to opt out of a $2 monthly increase.

Ummm…there are still people using dial-up?!?!

6. Minstrel Boy: Believe Me, It’s Torture: Politics & Power

“What”more can be added to the debate over U.S. interrogation methods, and whether waterboarding is torture? Try firsthand experience.

This jus’ in: Krispy Kreme Bacon Cheeseburgers = Good, Waterboarding = Bad…

7. Reason Magazine: Taxation Without Transportation

Ever tried to cancel an airline ticket, only to discover that all the taxes, fees, and other annoying tacked on charges aren’t refundable? Turns out it’s just the U.S. government that keeps taxes for services not rendered.

Nickel and dimin’ us, even when it isn’t owed…

8. Signs of the Times News: U.S. Officials Stymied in Salmonella Search

With the number of people sickened in the nationwide salmonella outbreak now standing at 869, with 107 hospitalizations, U.S. officials acknowledged Tuesday that they were no closer to identifying the source of the contaminant.

Dude! If this were CSI, those tomatoes would’ve confessed already!

9. Think Progress: Pentagon inspector general resigns.

This afternoon, the Pentagon announced the resignation of the department’s inspector general (IG) Claude Kicklighter.

And, another one’s gone and another one’s gone, another one bites the dust…

10. uncomfortably numb: 4th of July has been canceled due to lack of independence

The 4th has always been the quintessential all-American holiday. Fireworks and the flag. Fitting symbols for our great ability to blow things up. It seems more and more that’s all we’re good at.

The irony of “bringing democracy to Iraq” is that we are losing it here in the US of A.
