Spitting Out Loud Hilarity...From Paris

(Lillian McEwen, ex-girl friend of Clarence Thomas, as reported by WashPost Reliable Source):" In both interviews, McEwen has dropped little bits of startling personal news and then insisted she didn't think it was a big deal. Thomas's porn habit, as she described it on CNN -- nothing shocking to her, "I didn't disapprove of it, I just didn't care," even considering his career goals at the time: "I assume that many Supreme Court justices watch porn and enjoy porn. I mean, it's very popular on the Internet, that's why most people use their computers, is to watch porn, especially men."

There is something spitting-out-loud hilarious about that comment by Lillian....don't ya think?

For Our Female Readers...From Paris

...or...for the 'bitches', 'witches',  'bimbos' and 'whores' who read DB.

Hey girls.  Is it me, or have you noticed this too--Democrats and liberals are calling us some pretty rough names.  'Not-so-Joyful-Joy Behar is screaming Sharon Engle is a bitch?  Seriously.  Is that the BEST Joy can do?  Jerry Brown's wife screams that Meg Whitman is a 'whore'? Wow!  Very lame; very limited imagination.

When I was a child, my mother used to say "You will notice when people swear, it's because they are unintelligent, uncouth and unsophisticated.  When they swear and stoop to name calling, they have no real argument.  They define themselves with their rude crude comments. 

Bottom Line (and maybe that trillion $ for a stimulus that did nothing and…)

WV corruption probe gaining steam?

A federal investigation into West Virginia Gov. Joe Manchin’s administration has taken a disturbing turn for his Democratic supporters: agents reportedly have subpoenaed the director of the state Aviation Division, along with flight logs and records for official government aircraft.

The news comes just after federal prosecutors privately asked a judge to delay the sentencing of a contractor who got a no-bid contract to redecorate Manchin’s office. And the developments are set against an ongoing government probe reportedly involving state Democratic Party chairman Larry Puccio, Manchin’s former chief of staff.

What will be the explanation?

2011 Business Tax Climate: Chilliest in Blue States
The Tax Foundation today released the 2011 State Business Tax Climate Index (8th ed.) which ranks the fifty states according to five indices: corporate tax, individual income tax, sales tax, unemployment insurance tax, and property tax. Here are the ten states with the best and worst business tax climates:

Best                                                    Worst

1 South Dakota                               41 North Carolina

2 Alaska                                            42 Rhode Island

3 Wyoming                                       43 Minnesota

4 Nevada                                           44 Maryland

5 Florida                                            45 Iowa

6 Montana                                         46 Ohio

7 New Hampshire                           47 Connecticut

8 Delaware                                        48 New Jersey

9 Utah                                                 49 California

10 Indiana                                          50 New York

Interestingly, all ten of the states with the worst business tax climates voted for Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election, and five of the ten states with the best business tax climates voted for John McCain (and eight of the ten voted for George Bush in 2004).

For our California readers

The specific property is an Oakland, California, home valued at over a million dollars and co-owned by Boxer, her husband Stewart, their son Douglas, and his wife Amy.

Senator Boxer had an ownership in 854 Longridge Road [in Oakland], and failed to report this substantial real property asset on any of her personal financial disclosures between 2002 and 2010.  She had also failed to report the mortgage on the property.  Further, she failed to report the purchase of 854 Longridge Road in 2002. 

For our Florida readers. When CNN says a Dem cheated, well that is like Fox saying a repub cheated.

Of all his adventures though, his ascents of Everest stand out as his most physically demanding and rewarding. "You do wonder - when you are at 28,000 feet, the height that aeroplanes cruise at, when you are struggling to draw breath and every limb aches - why do I do this?"

Can you guess the iconic figure this list is about?

Galleycat has posted a list of books that a 60s-era icon had on her bookshelf. The list is actually a lot more literary than the average Joe would have suspected:

- The Secret Agent by Joseph Conrad
- Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert
- The Unnamable by Samuel Beckett
- Paris Blues by Harold Flender
- Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson
- Sister Carrie by Theodore Dreiser
- A Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway
- Tortilla Flat by John Steinbeck
- The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway
- On the Road by Jack Kerouac
- The Fall by Albert Camus
- Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison
- Once There Was a War by John Steinbeck

Just for fun I limited these searches to books that were published before the icon's death in 1962, so if you click though you can get an idea of what her shelf might have actually looked like.

Business is run on trickle-down. If Congress pushes costs to businesses, then the businesses, in turn, will pass along to their employees. Then, employees get ticked, form tea parties or get angry and vote. Call me a cynic, but the cycle just keeps going and going. Makes one continue to keep Ben Franklin in mind, when he wrote: "The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting a different result each time." Heck, maybe a Forrest Gump quote is more appropriate for our ignorant politicians: "Stupid is as stupid does."

Risk of Cancer Due to Radiation Exposure in Middle Age May Be Higher Than Previously Estimated

ScienceDaily (Oct. 25, 2010) — Contrary to common assumptions, the risk of cancer associated with radiation exposure in middle age may not be lower than the risk associated with exposure at younger ages, according to a study published online October 25 in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute.

"Overall, the weight of the epidemiological evidence suggests that for adult exposures, radiation risks do not generally decrease with increasing age at exposure,"
