Just found out I will be working half of Ricci's show again, from this Friday through next Friday. I probably won't be creating this website for those six days. I would rather do my extra show research and give 100% effort to the extra air shifts.

Note: The story I read said the stripper fee was $375. That's wrong. The club fee would be 375 and the stripper fee would be $50 a year.

WILL FERRELL'S

Straight Talk From the White House West

THIS IS ANTI-BUSH BUT IT'S PRETTY FUNNY

 

 

 

Thirty-eight years ago this very month, a young congressman told his colleagues that something was seriously amiss about huge wartime contracts awarded to a company with a big friend in a high place.

"The potential for waste and profiteering under such a contract is substantial," he warned. It is "beyond me," he went on, why the contract "has not been and is not now being adequately audited."

The war was Vietnam. The company was Brown & Root, a subsidiary of Halliburton that is now known as KBR. The big friend in a high place was Democratic President Lyndon B. Johnson. And the impassioned young congressman was Donald Rumsfeld.

COUNTDOWN TO SEPTEMBER 1
If the intelligence information announced Sunday 8/1 about a Terrorist Threat against 5 financial institutions actually justified placing defenses in public places in New York, Washington DC and Newark, then those guards should still be in place 30 days later, due to the vagueness about when any such attacks might happen.
If the guards are gone by 9/1 (and there has been no new intel to cancel the "attack threat") then I will believe the public measures weren't considered really necessary in the first place.
