Temperature is down to 93. No word if Al Gore is pleased.
The president of Argentina plans to nationalize the pension system of that country, making over $30 billion in (currently) individually-held retirement accounts government property.
Here's the "money" quote:
So according to Madame President, if you have more money than someone else, it is "fair" that the government decide how much you should keep. The government then takes away what IT (not YOU, who earned the money and/or saved it) feels you don't need, and gives it to someone else with less...all in the interest of being "fair".
A petition has been signed by more than 3,000 educators protesting the "demonization of Professor William Ayers", saying his violent past is "just history".
Just "history". Gee, the same thing could be said of the 9/11 bombers. Or the Manson killings. Or Michael Vick. And Ayers is on record saying he has "no regrets", and wished his group had done more.
Let's see. Frivolous lawsuit - check. Judge tosses it out of court - check. Plaintiff (a judge) loses his position for embarrassing his profession - check. Plaintiff back before appeals court, saying he deserves his money anyway - check.
The $54 million Case Of The Missing Pants is back.
Michael Myers has nothing on this case.
In other stupid people news, the beauty queen I spoke of yesterday will lose her crown for her actions. Let's recap: she and her friends decided not to pay for a meal at a restaurant so they bailed...leaving her purse behind...with ID...and containing Xanax and pot.
Here's another stupid teenager story. In Florida...well, here's the Fark headline, which says it all:
Tonight will most likely be a day of staying home. Or maybe a trip to the Park.
Be seeing you.
