December 1, 2010 - Taxing Negotiations

obama tax cut negotiations
Really Short Story: The government just wants you to be happy…if it means you will re-elect them.
Short Story: If you're personally still hoping on an extension of those George Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, well, let's be honest, the odds of you sitting here reading this website are pretty low. However, if you are, and you have convinced yourself that President Barack Obama will somehow find a way for you to pay more taxes, or possibly donate all of your belongings to a variety of diverse, poor inner-city folks, well, I have some good news. It appears that Mr. Obama is willing to negotiate a way to extend the Bush tax cuts without increasing taxes for anyone else while reducing the deficit, if only it weren't impossible. Meanwhile, the Republicans seem to be willing to negotiate as long as it's completely on their terms, and it ends in Obama's resignation, and a further redistribution of wealth from the poor to the top 1% of Americans.

December 1, 2010: richard pryor Day! - There's nothing funny about this guy's background…
WHY?: His full name is Richard Franklin Lennox Thomas Pryor III, which means, I guess, there were two people before him named Richard Franklin Lennox Thomas Pryor. Anyway, before I tell you a few details about Pryor's life, keep this in mind: he was raised in his grandmother's brothel, where his mother worked as a prostitute, before she abandoned young Richard at age 10. So, with that in mind, you might excuse Pryor's 7 marriages, his heart attack at age 37, his second heart attack at age 50, his freebasing cocaine accident where he lit himself on fire, his fiery on-set personality that scared even Gene Wilder, or his controversial and racially-charged standup material. Instead, let us focus on the fact that Pryor was named the #1 standup comedian of all time by Comedy Central, or that he had one of the craziest mustaches of the modern era.

TOMORROW'S contenders:
britney spears - She was the hottest name in pop music…like 10 years ago. Now, she's just a single mother of two.
harry reid - The only thing I know about Harry Reid is that the Tea Party hates him…so I guess he's probably pretty cool.
stone phillips - I would assume he's the only dude in the world who is actually named Stone.

If the worst thing you ever do while your drunk is drop the anchor on a cruise ship, well, that would make for one hell of a story.

How can you be racist when everyone in your country looks exactly the same. Wait, is that racist? Sorry.

  1. I knew I shared a birthday with Britney Spears, but had no idea that I shared one with Sir Stone Phillips. I remember on my 17th birthday, people were all excited that Britney turned 18. They thought she was going to do something CRAZY and that there would be nudie pics of her floating around immediately.
