Are you ready for some FOOTBALL!?!?!

I am looking forward to cheering for Kurt Warner and the Arizona Cardinals.

This is a fun video.

Check it out.

"IN...." INcongurous, INcredible, INsane

I am amazed at the INANE, empty-headed statement by Nancy Pelosi. Headline... "PELOSI SAYS BIRTH CONTROL WILL HELP ECONOMY." Right below that story was a report from Japan... "Japanese workers urged: Go home and multiply." How incongruous. Pelosi states... Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi boldly defended a move to add birth control funding to the new economic "stimulus" package, claiming "contraception will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government."

Pelosi, the mother of 5 children and 6 grandchildren, who once said, "Nothing in my life will ever, ever compare to being a mom," seemed to imply babies are somehow a burden on the treasury.

The revelation came during an exchange Sunday morning on ABC's THIS WEEK.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Hundreds of millions of dollars to expand family planning services. How is that stimulus?

PELOSI: Well, the family planning services reduce cost. They reduce cost. The states are in terrible fiscal budget crises now and part of what we do for children's health, education and some of those elements are to help the states meet their financial needs. One
of those - one of the initiatives you mentioned, the contraception, will reduce costs to the states and to the federal government.

STEPHANOPOULOS: So no apologies for that?

PELOSI: No apologies. No. we have to deal with the consequences of the downturn in our economy.

The story about Japan states...

Japan in the midst of an unprecedented recession, so corporations are being asked to work toward fixing another major problem: the country's low birthrate.

At 1.34, the birthrate is well below the 2.0 needed to maintain Japan's population, according to the country's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.

Analysts say the world's second-largest economy faces its greatest threat from its own social problems, rather than outside forces. And the country desperately needs to make some fixes to its current social and work structures, sociologists say.


I think America is in for some rough times ahead.

I'm NOT lovin' it - McDonald's

Okay, what's the deal with this FALSE advertising that McDonald's is doing here in Chicagoland?!??
The advertisement states that on Monday, you can go into a McDonald's Restaurant and they will give you a free latte or mocha.
Out of curiosity, Joy and I have gone into a couple of them (on Monday) requesting one of their drinks and the answer has been, "Oh, were not doing that." I then ask them where there is one that is participating in their MASSIVE advertising campaign. And they refer me to a McDonald's further down the road.
I don't get it and...


This ad appears to be a lie in Will County....
