DON'T FUCK WITH THE BLENDER (#6 in a series)


The secret word is Liquefy


As pandas are saved from the Chinese Chinese mega-quake, it might raise the ethical question of whether we first save Pandas or humans, but I will not engage in it. Me, I’m with the pandas. (Click for video)

For Hillary Clinton to blurt out these now notorious words on camera in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, that inevitably linked Barack Obama, Bobby Kennedy, and the specter of assassination, surely must be the termination of any plausible political career. I supported Hillary in her run for the Senate, I was a huge fan of her husband, but, these eight words opened a door on a character so insensitive and single-minded in her hopeless quest for power that I would hate to see this woman anywhere near the White House. And if you might wonder why such words are so dangerous in modern America, just read on…

A car dealership in Butler, Missouri is offering a free handgun with every vehicle sold. The car lot in question, Max Motors, says sales have quadrupled since the start of the offer. The reason for the somewhat grim promotion? Owner Mark Muller explained "We did it because of Barack Obama. He said all those people in the Midwest, you've got to have compassion for them because they're clinging to their guns and their Bibles. I found that quite offensive. We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns." Click for the rest of the story (Sent by Valerie)

HCB send over the following facts (or maybe trivia) about the late lamented Johnny Cash…

Fact 1 Johnny Cash was the first American to learn of Stalin's death. As an expert Morse code operator in the air force during WWII, Cash was at the keys when he intercepted a message that Stalin had died.Source: BBC Radio, World Service.
Fact 2 One of the most criminal myth-making episodes on record concerns the 'live' recording of Johnny Cash's song "Folsom Prison Blues." When he sings "I shot a man in Reno, just to watch him die" the room full of real prisoners, and some real murderers, was dead silent. To create excitement, Sony added cheers of delight as the line was delivered. The source is Michael Streissguth’s book "Johnny Cash at Folsome Prison."

***(Yes on Prop 99)***

Vote on Tuesday, June 3rd

THIS IS IMPORTANT! It's just a minor primary election that normally goes unnoticed... but if you are a California voter -- particularly if you're a California renter -- this could be the most important vote you'll cast all year!
Proposition 98 purports to protect private property rights and to limit abuses of the government in seizing property for eminent domain. But that's not all it does. Prop 98 would eliminate rent-control laws on a statewide level. Even if your city or neighborhood has rent control, this law would make those laws irrelevant. Rent would be completely deregulated, allowing landlords to jack up prices any way they wanted.Even if you're a homeowner, it's still important to vote NO on 98, because these changes could also affect the stores you shop in and the businesses where you work. (Most businesses rent from property owners.) If you even think that you or someone you care about may ever have to rent a property in California, it's urgent that you vote NO on Prop 98.This item was put on this summertime ballot specifically because its supporters knew turn-out would be low. (If you don't believe me, watch this
YouTube video where the head of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association gloats about how the low turn-out will help them win.)The greedy bastards behind this law are depending on the fact that no one pays attention to this summer election.They're counting on you not showing up. Over a dozen California cities have some form of rent control law. These cities include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Oakland, Berkeley, Santa Monica, and San Jose. In addition, about 100 cities and counties have laws limiting the rent mobile home park owners may charge people who lease space in their park. Altogether, about one million California households live in rent-controlled apartments or mobile home parks.Please pass this onto every California voter & renter you know.Please vote NO on Prop 98 on June 3rd.Please vote YES on Prop 99. (This is a law that seeks to limit eminent domain abuses without eliminating rent control. Voting "yes" on 99 will help us defeat 98. If 99 gets more votes than 98, Prop 98 will never go into effect.)

Religious true believers have always claimed Albert Einstein as their own, largely because of the famous quote, "God does not play dice with the universe." A handwritten letter, however, that the great physicist wrote to the philosopher Eric Gutkind in 1954, a year before his death at age 76, suggests he had serious problems with organised religion. "The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends, which are nevertheless pretty childish."

“We’re fleas, not ants. But we look real menacing and you’ve yet to discover what we have planned.”

Uncle Bill Burroughs always warned us how the planet was drifting to random insect doom, but doom seems to be a hell of a lot closer with the arrival in Texas of crazy raspberry ants that like to attack computers and other electronic hardware. The following story from The Daily Tech was forwarded for our education and concern by some girl…

"A new species of ant has arrived in Houston and is believed to have come to Texas via a cargo ship that arrived at the Port of Houston. The ants are called crazy rasberry ants. The ants get the odd name from the fact that they tend to move erratically around in search of food rather than moving in orderly lines like typical ants." Click for full story
