Boeing Laser Avenger: Humvee with frikkin' laser on its head

Its 1kw laser beam causes near-instantaneous detonation of the munitions its been used on so far, and Boeing's also hinting that it might just work as an anti-aircraft weapon, too. Trucks with laser guns might be a lot closer than you think.

The Ron Paul Dollar?

Yep, this is jumping the gun i think.

Teacher Pay.

Check out this report of average teacher comp.

There was apparently an issue with Kenosha's fringe costs so they suggest throwing this out.

The next time you hear teachers whining about being under paid for 9 months work remember this.

We're #1!!!!!!!!!

#1 in school drop outs.

Last in reading.

Last in math.

I blame the lack of a light rail system.

Family Trees???

I guess I can move Lowes to the naughty list.

Funnies not far from the truth.

She was for it before she knew that 70% of the people were against it.

Clinton says no to licenses for illegals

Does anyone actually think Elliot Spitzer gave this up all his own with no hints from the Clinton camp? Spitzer is a pit bull, he does not change positions this easily.

Questions for Hillary.

Drudge is reporting that Wolf Blitzer has been told to lay off the Hillary centric questions in the latest of the 2,367,012 Democratic Presidential Debates.

In the opposite spirit of that directive let us have some direct questions to Hillary here.

I'll start.

Senator Clinton, the issue on if you left a tip or not to me is not a big deal. However, why did the story change from your campaign at least 4 times on this issue? If the waitress was lying, why did her story never change while the campaigns story changed from we charged a $100 tip to we left a $100 cash tip to someone came back and left a $20 bill. If your campaign can not even get their story straight on something this insignificant why should we expect your administration to be run any differently?

A follow up on that question, why don't you carry any cash so you can see that details like this are accounted for?

Senator Clinton, why must you implant so many questioners in your crowd? Are you afraid to answer real questions from real people?

Senator Clinton, why are less than half of one percent of documents in the Clinton Library open for review? Freedom of Information requests have been ignored and embargoed until after the November 2008 election. What exactly is in those documents that you do not wish us to see?

Senator Clinton, Senator Obama came out in favor of increasing Social Security taxes this week. Do you approve or disapprove of his proposal?

Senator Clinton, should Barry Bonds be allowed into the Baseball Hall of Fame?

Senator Clinton, everyone knows your husband has cheated on you more times than most of us can keep track of. Why do you think he strayed so often, and why have you forgiven him for embarrassing you publicly so often? Could it be you are just using him for your own political purposes?

Senator Clinton if diplomacy fails in Iran, should Iran be allowed to develop nuclear weapons? If diplomacy does fail, then what?

Senator Clinton the Congress has tried and failed to stop the war in Iraq 40 times. Why?

Senator Clinton can you tell us which legislative initiative you have authored and gotten passed through Congress that you are the proudest of? (Pork doesn't count.)

Go ahead add your own question for Senator Clinton.

Drinking Right Alert

Tonight is Drinking Right night.

Have fun kiddies, I'm going to have to miss this one I think.

How many video games can we name in this band show?

This is outrageous...

A man sees a coworker is on the most wanted list and turns him in...

His boss fires him the same day saying he should have minded his own business.

What a stunning lack of common sense.

Overselling Achievement

The Journal Sentinel has an article up today highlighting Wisconsin's first place ranking in overselling the achievement of our public schools.

Everyone in the state should read this and demand accountability.

Taser parties?

Why not?

PHOENIX (CBS) ― You can call it a shocking sign of the times - Tupperware parties are starting to be replaced by "Taser parties."A woman in Arizona recently hosted a party where she served cheese and apple cider while a law enforcement officer demonstrated Tasers.After a short question and answer period, visitors were able to try the non-lethal weapons out for themselves.The response was pretty positive."Its light, its small, it comes in colors but if you know you are going to be in a certain situation where you might be uncomfortable, why not have it with you asked Lynne Rigberg, the host of the party. "It just makes you more confident."There's no word on how many of the new "must have weapon for women" were sold at this party.

A Veterans Day Poem.

A Soldier Prays

By: Tom R. Milne

Oh Lord!
Here we sit on this foreign soil,
So very far from home and loved one all.
Death so very near and we so very much afraid.

Please help my comrades and I,
For we wish not to die alone.
We pray that you will be here,
To hear our cry and us to your breast to take.

You are the only living Lord,
We give ourselves to you.
If we must die, and die we must,
Please take us home on high with you.

With outstretched hands we grasp for thee,
Thy love so tender and yet so strong.
Every breath of ours is yours to have,
We need you, Oh so very much Lord.
