It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.

I think that someone at CNN has a sense of humor. This makes me laugh. Check out the identifying remarks under the photo. It's like he's a real person. Since we are talking CNN, I'd think that it's someone who didn't realize that it was humerous or, god forbid, someone who themself is part of that entire craziness, if not for a similar statement under the picutre here. An "undated" photo. I'm way too easily amused in life. When CNN amuses me, I know I have a problem...

Oh, and after my weekend of 50 degrees, and even in the 40s yesterday...it's snowing today. Guess my spring is over. I blame Punxsutawney Phil. (Speaking of blaming, my one friend blames everything on the Jewish population. No, he's not the least bit anti-Semitic; he's trying to make a statement concerning how certain groups get blamed for everything. If you complain about the weather, his response will be, "You know who's to blame for that?" I'd personally argue that now that group is Arab Americans - does anyone watch 24? Did they catch the tolerance bit? As Jon Stewart pointed out last week, of COURSE 24 was fiction; it had a black president, for crying out loud.
Which leads me to the fact that the American Nazi Party is still around spreading hate. (They are by no means the only American hate group, I sometimes thing that hate is as American as mom and apple pie.) But I hate the fact that they get to spread their blond-haired, blue-eyed white (likely male) heterosexual supremacist agenda on highways. And even more, I hate the fact that my liberal "hating America-ness" (thanks Matt) insists that I protect the First Amendment right of messages that literally sicken me.
I should get to work before I emotionally disgust myself and can't work for the rest of the day.

    Reporting Live from in front of a computer....

    That is surprising to see "American Nazi Party" advertised on an Adopt-A-Highway sign. At least they could have only put "National Socialist Movement" on the sign, not many people would have realized what that means and still worked around the "free speech" issue.

    I grew up in Salem, can say that the stretch of road there is not that heavily travelled (from what I remember). Initially more shocked seeing the link to the Statesman Journal and my "hometown." I can imagine the sign not lasting that long though.....

    What if they put the true ages of the cartoon characters in the captions? "Lucy Van Pelt, shown above, is crabby because she is over fifty years old and STILL lives at home with brothers Linus and Rerun."
