Good Call

Another reason to like Gary Sinise in addition to his acting skills:

Sinise Named Spokesman for Veterans Group

NEW YORK (AP) - Gary Sinise will serve as the national spokesman for the Disabled Veterans for Life Memorial Foundation.

The actor, who played Vietnam vet "Lt. Dan" Taylor in "Forrest Gump," agreed to the spokesman position, it was announced Friday. The foundation is working to build a disabled veterans memorial in Washington D.C. near the Capitol.

"I am deeply moved to have been asked to participate in this absolutely necessary memorial," Sinise said in a statement. "I can only hope that my participation will help draw attention to the cause and ensure its successful fruition as the nation's first and only such tribute built specifically to these courageous men and women."

Stupid People Bare Chests for Stupid Cause

Here is a good way to make yourself (and the 'cause' you represent) completely inane:

2 Protesters Arrested After Going Topless

SACRAMENTO -- Police arrested two members of an organization called Breasts Not Bombs after they removed their tops during a protest on the steps of the state Capitol on Monday afternoon.

The women, who were protesting Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's ballot measures for today's special election, took off their shirts despite warnings from the California Highway Patrol last week that doing so would lead to their arrests — and possibly their inclusion on the state's list of sex offenders. A federal judge Friday refused to grant a request from Breasts Not Bombs to block the police from arresting topless protesters.

Officials at the Sacramento County district attorney's office said they have not decided whether to prosecute the protesters, and if they do, whether to seek to have them listed as sex offenders.

"We have done these demonstrations from San Francisco to Mendocino to the gates of the White House and never been restrained in this way," said Breasts Not Bombs member Sherry Glaser of Albion, Calif., near Mendocino, addressing about 100 onlookers.

Soon after, Glaser, 45, removed her top and was promptly arrested. Renee Love, 40, also of Albion, was arrested after she removed her top. Both were charged with indecent exposure, disorderly conduct and going beyond the scope of their permit to demonstrate on state property.

"The permit specifically said that nudity would not be allowed," said Tom Marshall, a CHP spokesman. "We're clearly following the law as it was written. They took us to court Friday seeking a restraining order to stop us from arresting them and the judge came down on our side."

Angered that Glaser and Love could be listed on the sex offender registry if convicted of lewd acts, state Sen. Gloria Romero (D-Los Angeles) joined the protesters before their arrests to announce that she would introduce legislation to decriminalize the baring of breasts in public. "While it is legal for men to go shirtless in public in California," she said, "women risk being classified as sex offenders for baring the same body parts."

Not only are these nitwits arrested for this, but we've also got one of LA's Assemblywoman - Gloria Romero - acting like this was a grievous act to arrest them.

Gloria, you dipstick: these dorks were warned by the CHP to not do what they did. They popped out their boobs and promptly got arrested. You should be arrested just on general principles for using it as a soapbox.

The thing that's really stupid is their name: Boobs not Bombs. Ummmm, ladies? There aren't any bombs in Sacramento unless you include you twerps taking off your shirts for a stupid reason.

Well, it could have been worse: there might have been a group of metrosexual men that were part of a group called 'Schlongs not Schwarzenegger'.....

Cynthia is On The Move

Wow....Cynthis McKinney must really be making her constituents proud with her efforts in Congress:

Congresswoman: Who killed Tupac?

WASHINGTON – Rep. Cynthia McKinney, D-GA, has introduced a bill to provide for the "expeditious disclosure of records relevant to the life and death of Tupac Amaru Shakur," the rapper murdered in Las Vegas in 1996.

The bill has been referred to the Committee on Government Reform and Committee on Rules.

Afenia Shakur, Tupac's mother and a former member of the Black Panthers, is reportedly supporting the effort.

McKinney and Tupac devotees say they believe Shakur was under surveillance by the FBI and other governmental agencies at the time of the murder.

Actually Cynthia, the question you really should be asking is Who cares?....actually, I'm sure that Cynthia will venture a theory or two about how those evil Joozzzz are behind it.

Prop 75 Exemplified

There's no need for Proposition 75 - the unions already allow it's members to 'opt out' from using their dues for political purposes.

Really? Then explain this:

Judge rejects bid to halt union levy for ballot fight

A Sacramento federal judge Friday rejected a request from about 4,000 state employees for an order barring special payroll deductions for a union fund to fight two of Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's initiatives on Tuesday's ballot.

U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England Jr. had issued a temporary restraining order Wednesday prohibiting the deductions.

But after a lengthy hearing Friday, England decided not to issue a preliminary injunction, which would have remained in force until the lawsuit is resolved on its merits.

The governing body of the Service Employees International Union, Local 1000, which represents about 86,000 state employees, voted in August to deduct one-quarter of 1 percent of gross wages for the pay periods between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31 to combat Propositions 75 and 76 on Tuesday's ballot.

The assessment is being levied on the local's members and an additional 28,000 nonunion employees who work in categories covered by the local's collective bargaining agreements and who pay "fair share" dues to the union. About 4,000 of the latter group objected to the assessment because they do not oppose the two targeted initiatives.

Stopping Cat Crime Wave

This seems a bit.....excessive and it makes me wonder: did the cat serve time in jail too!?

Man Jailed for Not Licensing Cat in N.D.

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota man has served an unusually steep sentence for having an unlicensed cat: two days in jail.

William T. Dennis, 38, was charged with failing to license his feline, which normally brings a fine. But a warrant was issued for his arrest when he didn't show up for a court appearance on the charge.

Dennis spent two days in jail before appearing in court again.

"He basically just received credit for time served," said Bismarck Municipal Judge Charles Isakson.

Failure to license an animal carries a fine up to $1,000 and a possible 30 day jail sentence in Bismarck.

"I never thought I'd sentence someone to two days in jail for this," Isakson said. "Since no situations like this are on record, I had no history to go on for sentencing."

But then again - we all know the decay of the fabric of society that comes from allowing unlicensed felines to roam around at will. First, they'll pee in the yard to mark their territory and then it gets really intense: cats whizzing all over the place!!

It's a good think this judge put a serious stop to this uncivilized behavior.
