What's in the news today?

Don't forget to breathe a little less so you can help reduce the amount of man-made carbon in the air and lower your carbon footprint as much as possible. One thing is for sure and that is that there is a lot of hot air on the subject of global warming. See Arnold Schwarznegger versus Sarah Palin for this one. I wrote about this so I won't continue to bitch but I will say that I wish I had some of those people preaching climate change right here right now so we could have afternoon tea out in the balmy 19 degree weather.

What else is in the news? Ah yes; Iraqi insurgents have figured out a way to hack into the video streams sent by Predator drones so they may see the areas the drones are flying over and be able to avoid attack themselves. What incredible piece of technology are these people using to break the U.S. military's highly encrypted video and audio code you ask? It's a thing called a 'Sky Grabber' and it was designed to take video, audio, and Internet signals out of the air. It was developed by a Russian man who said he never thought of it being used to capture military intelligence at all. That sounds very plausible when you find out that the military DOES NOT ENCRYPT THEIR VIDEO CODE BEING SENT BACK FROM THE DRONES!!!! Jesus, where do these people go to school? They knew about the problem as far back as the 1990's when the drones were first employed in Bosnia, but the Pentagon in its infinite wisdom decided that enemy forces would not figure out this weakness and be able to exploit it. How arrogant is it to think that your enemy (one you cannot name and cannot destroy) won't be able to figure out something so simple that a $26.00 piece of hacking equipment can break into it? Pretty fucking arrogant is my thought. The good news is that I am going to order a Sky Grabber and see if I can watch some illegal porn on my TV. Bethie, if your reading this, I'm just kidding about watching porn and I only wrote it for comedic effect.

Chris Henry, a receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals has died after being ejected from the back of a moving pickup truck he was riding in which his fiance was allegedly driving. It seems there was some sort of domestic dispute between the man was referred to by a judge as a 'one man crime wave" and his beautiful bride to be,(Loleini Tonga)and he jumped in the back of the truck as she was peeling out. Looking at her postings on her MySpace page and it doesn't seem possible. Based on her firm grasp of the English language I would have thought that these two would be the co-heads of the local Mensa group. You have to try damn hard to write shit fucked up on purpose you know that? Like writing 'dis' instead of 'this' or 'gangsta' instead of 'gangster'. Ironically, Miss Tonga had written on her MySpace page how good God is recently. God, apparently didn't get the message and let her drive off with her boyfriend in the back of the truck bouncing around like some illegal immigrant getting smuggled in over a bad road. So much for being an NFL wife now Honey.

The Vermont Supreme court is looking into a case that will decide just what a pet is worth to families. A couple whose dog was shot and killed after straying onto a neighbors yard is suing the man in much the same way parents would file a civil suit against someone for the loss of a child. While it is certainly sad to have something like this happen to a beloved pet, these people that don't have children need to stop thinking that their animals are the same thing as kids. I can tell you right now that until you hold a child in your hands that you made with another human being you just won't get it, but once you do, you'll know exactly what I mean. It becomes instantly clear to you that a pet is a wonderful companion, but it isn't a child. It's rather insulting to me when someone thinks their dog or cat is the same thing as a child. That is a person that has no sense of perspective and needs to seriously look at the way the really real world is. This couple in Vermont has decided that the 76 year old man who shot their dog with an air rifle needs to be punished financially and not just to cover the cost of the vet bill and cremation service for their lost dog. I hope they don't have any other animals roaming around the streets. I would hate to get sued if I ran over a cat because these two think Mitzy the walking flea bag is as important as a child. Don't get me wrong, I am not a hater of animals in the least. I have a dog and have had cats. My sister just lost a cat to a tumor and I know how much she loved little Abbey. I loved her, she was an awesome cat and deserved to be loved as much as you can love any pet. I am just saying that it irks me when someone thinks that an animal is on the same level as a child when it comes to love and life and death.

That's all for now, I need to go have a nappy before work tonight.
