Asked by the host to explain his party’s plan to deal with carbon emissions, Republican House Minority Leader John Boehner described the overwhelming scientific consensus that carbon dioxide is contributing to climate change as “comical” during an appearance (see video below) on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopolous Sunday. Furthermore, he pointed out that cow flatulence contributes CO2 to the environment all the time.
This wasn’t the first time ABC has focused on the subject of cow flatulence. As noted in my post, ABC Blaming Cow Farts for Warming Planet (July 21, 2008), the network’s World News with Charles Gibson advised viewers to curb their beef consumption and, in turn, lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Once again, I think members of the news media ought to stop blaming our bovine friends’ farts for polluting the planet. If you agree, show your support for “everything cow” with CO2ws merchandise items like the t-shirts below from The Bob McCarty Shop.
An Iowa State trooper who was investigated after it was shown that he forwarded an e-mail showing mugshots of people wearing Barack Obama t-shirts has been suspended for 30 days, according to a report from KETV 7 in Omaha:
Sgt. Rodney Hicok was at home and off-duty when he forwarded the e-mails, said an official with the Iowa Department of Public Safety Bureau and Professional Standards.
The e-mail made disparaging remarks about 15 people in the photos and referred to Obama as having “quite a fan base.”
Any man who dares answer a question like the one asked in the headline above — and gets away unscathed — is either a liar, a politician or single. On the other hand, the wise man is the one who’s learned how to avoid answering such a no-win question. Regardless of where you find yourself when it comes to questions about the female physique, you might get a kick out of one of the two new products available at The Bob McCarty Shop.
Have fun with your wife, fiance or girlfriend by ordering one of these bumper stickers for her vehicle’s rear bumper.
If you’re having trouble coming up with the “perfect” Christmas gift for someone you love, take a look at this helpful video from our friends at Sweet Tea Films. The star of this film, Tavin Dillard, offers several thoughtful ideas.
If you’re still having trouble coming up with an idea after watching the video above, visit one of the fine establishments listed under the BMW SHOP LINKS heading at left.
I learned in an article this morning that French President Nicolas Sarkozy “vowed before his election in May to buy a Taser — which paralyses targets — for every policeman and gendarme in France which could provide a market for at least 300,000 guns alone.” That means the demand for Don’t Taze Me, Bro! t-shirts is going to soar — in France, that is.
Now, simply by wearing Ne me taze pas, bro! (Don’t Taze Me, Bro!) clothing, any French citizen — even the person who participates in the country’s frequent riots (see this article) — can ensure his all-important Ne me taze pas, bro! message is communicated to law enforcement. In turn, he might also be able to avoid — but there’s no guarantee! — receiving a 500,000-volt shock to his system.
[Note: Thanks to Bob McCarty Writes friend Richard Erickson in Paris, I've revised/improved upon the translation that originally appeared in this post.]
Who could have imagined the use of tasers would gain so much media attention?
First, it was the Andrew Meyer incident in Gainesville, Fla. Then, a few days ago, a nude man in St. Louis got the shock of his life. Finally, today, a Polish immigrant in Vancouver was tasered and died as a result.
Could it be that everyone will soon need a “Don’t taze me, bro!” t-shirt simply to ensure the all-important message is conveyed to members of law enforcement? In a twisted entrepreneurish way, I hope so!
Without writers to provide fresh material for daytime soap operas, evening sitcoms and late-night talk shows, many of the television networks will be forced to air re-runs of those programs or something else.
News of that possibility came yesterday in the form of an Associate Press article that reported film and television writers are prepared to strike Monday for the first time since 1988. They’re said to be demanding “a bigger cut from video sales and shows sold or streamed over the Web” by big media companies, including CBS Corp., NBC Universal and The Walt Disney Company.
In response to that news, I say, “So what!”
The strike, if it takes place, won’t affect me much, since I didn’t care to watch the above-mentioned types of programming on their first go-rounds for the following reasons:
With the exception of The Office, an NBC show which reminds me of a cubicle-environment job I had long ago, evening sitcoms bore me with their lowest-common-denominator attempts at humor; and finally
Late-night talk shows lost me long ago as I grew weary of David Letterman and Jay Leno disparaging traditional family values and promoting people whose only value to me is that they serve as inspiration for the I DON’T LISTEN TO HOLLYWOOD! merchandise at The Bob McCarty Shop.
As far as I’m concerned, Hollywood writers responsible for the majority of the so-called “creative” efforts listed above can go on strike and stay on strike for as long as they like. I’m perfectly content watching football games — now available several days each week — and Fox News Channel.
