Is This What It Looked Like Just Before The Boston Massacre?

I'm thinking not quite. This is a modern day Tea Party Rally in Quincy, Illinois. Seems someone was worried the grannies would riot and ruin President Obama's speech, so the boys in blue (or is that black) were called in to keep the peace.

The video at the bottom of this page (under more pictures) is a riot, pardon the pun.

First Global Warming, Now Recycling?!?!

Could reason and logic finally be creeping into the most hallowed halls of the Church of Environmentalism? It looks like some governments may be carrying the recycling thing a bit too far.

From The Examiner in Washington, DC....

But some national recycling experts have begun calling for government restraint in trash recycling, which can be more costly and environmentally damaging than dumping.

"We just assume recycling is always better," said J. Winston Porter, president of the Waste Policy Center, an environmental consulting and policy organization. "But there's a point at which you shouldn't just recycle for recycling's sake."

Porter is a former policy administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency who helped set the federal government's first nationwide recycling targets.

May 20th----It's Everyone Draw Mohammed Day!!!

If Earth Day made you want to throw up as much as it did me, maybe here's a "protest holiday" you can sink your teeth into. It was started by some blog posters as a response to the death threats made against the creators of South Park by some wonderful adherents to the peaceful religion of Islam. Seems all you need to do to participate is get your creative juices flowing and draw your very own picture of Mohammed, then send it in where it can be shared with the world, and you too can be threatened with a violent death.

This sounds like great fun. And don't worry if your art skills are a tad lacking, I don't think Mohammed will mind. He founded the great religion of tolerance, right?
