#1  It's a presidential tradition.

Clinton's penis made it up Monica's Way.

#2  Booooo....

I don't even want to think of Bill and Monica's way. Ewwwwww.....

#3  All the way from Crawford to NYC?! Hell, my wife makes me leave mine at home if I'm just going to the store!

#4  Just as juvenile as the title suggests. Amazing what people will pay good money for.

#1  sounds like October in Southern California. And, of course, some of the fires are deliberately set. Those f*ckers should be burned at the stake

#2  Those f*ckers should be burned at the stake

How about...burned on the stake. As in impaled then roasted.

#3  good suggestion. I amend my motion
Posted by: Frank G || 02/08/2009 17:44 Comments || Top||

#4  It's absolutely horrible. Entire towns have been wiped out. 8 More bodies have just been found.

People couldn't escape the flames quick enough, they were moving so fast that they killed people trying to flee in their cars.

Death toll currently stands at 108 with over 750 Homes totally Destroyed.

#5  The Commonwealth Disaster Plan has been activated as an emergency response and the Military MIGHT be called in to help.

#6  A couple of morons set off some fireworks in a park in the western part of Colorado Springs yesterday, and started a grassfire that burned a few dozen acres. No one was hurt, and no homes were lost - mainly because fire crews controlled the fire very early. Fifteen fire crews responded, and spent more than ten hours fighting the blaze. If they hadn't controlled the fire, a dozen or more homes would have burned.

The Aussies may want to bring in the troops and put a stop to this, but they also may want to round up anyone that has deliberately started such a fire and do some shark fishing. I wouldn't doubt that some of the perpetrators were members of the Religion of Peace.

#7  Oztralian, I feel so sad for your loss. There's loss in nature, but arson's different. Oz needs to help those harmed, and make sure those sick f*cks who set fires - never do again. Hopefully by the same method. Nuff said

#8  Stay safe, dear Oztralian, and your family and friends. You and our other Australian correspondents will be in our thoughts until this is over.

Europe
Ireland's Boom Falls Hard in Global Crisis

#1  One of my dad's buddies got into the Irish real estate market (time shares) in the 90's. Was making money hand over fist. Now he's not only not making anything, he can't sell his properties.

As far as Guiness' fortunes go, that's part of a bigger trend. It's sad, worldwide the demand for beers with actual flavor is being displaced for demand for the American light lager style. It happened here over the course of Prohibition, depression, and WWII, a nearly 25 year period. Just before prohibition, the demand in the U.S. was just over 5% of the beer market for American light lagers. By 1945 it was over 80%. It peaked even higher in the 70's and 80's and has fallen back to a little over 80%.

This change seems to be happening in EUrope with amazing quickness, really over the past five or eight years. It's too bad. Despite my oft-times critiques of Euroland, I'll concede that they make an incredible array of delicious and interesting beers, and if the trend towards the Bud-and-Miller-and-Coors-ification continues, a lot of these brews could go the way of the dinosaurs, and that would be a shame.

Of course, it may all be moot because of Islamification of the EU, anyways.

#2  our best local brewery - Stone Brewing Co. - makes a great beer: "Arrogant Bastard Ale". Try some

#3  no mo euro is now sadder budweiser.
