An important announcement... It's FREE ICED COFFEE DAY at Dunkin Donuts!
There is no rush - Dunkin Donuts is giving out Full Size 16oz drinks from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Customers can walk into any participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurant (or can hit any number of stores throughout the day...) throughout the country.

Customers will be encouraged to try try their new iced coffee drinks; Berry Berry Iced Coffee, which combines the seasonal tastes of blueberry and raspberry with Dunkin' Donuts' award-winning coffee, the chain said.

And because I thought it was fitting, the new Dunkin commercial by They might be giants!
I thought it was fitting as well.

Sorry for the unbridled commercialism, but today, when something is free? That is a good thing.
The price of Milk is nearly 4 dollars a gallon these days, same goes for gas. The only end in sight it seems is for a drastic change in our country's economic policy.

Yesterday the US disputed the IMF on Food Prices
The Bush administration on Wednesday was downplaying the role of biofuels production in rising food prices.

The debate involves questions of blame for rapidly inflating prices for staple crops that have led to famine and riots in many parts of the world.

Some economists and food scientists have argued that biofuel production should be scaled back because it is a major factor in rising food costs, particularly corn.
So when you go to the store, and it seems like things are getting harder and harder to afford, please know, it isn't you. It isn't. When chicken jumps 5.5 percent in one year, and bread 14.3% ... that is not YOUR bad budgeting, that is the *ush administration's bad planning. *ush and these idiots couldn't plan their way out of a bag.

McCain wants people to believe he understands the common folks' plight in America? He has 9 houses, and his wife just sold a few million dollars worth of Sudan based investments. The McCains are four more years of *ush... only angrier and meaner and more spiteful.

The Republicans think they can set this country back on track? Another joke, imo. If I didn't LOVE this country so much, I would say fine, you guys broke it, now you own it.

But I love this country, and I love Iced Coffee, and I love They might Be Giants so I will keep reminding people about whose policies broke this country and why we need a change in course to get things back on track!

:peace: and
Raine

Good Morning Everyone!



Daily Reading posted to Forum



Highlights/Lowlights:



- Edwards endorses Obama

- Mt. Macaca: Unbelievably idiotic Senate GOP commercial (apparently not sure what state he's in or wishes to represent)

Bob Shaffer, GOP for Senate, has a new commercial out that commits maybe the most boneheaded mistake I've seen in a political ad. Seriously, this is unbelievable....

UPDATE: Anchorage mayor Mark Begich, himself a US Senate candidate (ie, the Democratic Nominee), responds here:

“While Alaskans can understand why Bob Schaffer would promote our beautiful mountain (Mt. McKinley), I hope he doesn’t expect Alaska to cede North America’s highest peak to the State of Colorado.”

- Olbermann special comment video (Mr. Bush: Shut the hell up) regarding giving up Golf vs 4000 Dead, 30,000 wounded in Iraq

- Hysterical Colbert Report video (he like O'Reilly has a bad, bad video of him blowing up a couple of years back, he's not proud of it, but he played it for his audience)

- NYT: Republican Election Losses Stir Fall Fears

- Two different stories on how McBush/McSame/McCain is terrible for the environment despite his rhetoric & greenwashing attempts...

Been playing around with 1club.fm lately for my netradio.. Put on the Tapestry channel which describes itself as "timeless rock, woven together to capture rock’s greatest era"... They're playing showtunes. Given it's from the musical Godspell, but it's still showtunes.



I think I'm gonna jump over to the "Hair Voltage" channel now.

Is this mean? (tongue in cheek - don't really care)

This was my response to a right wingnut troll who posted a message telling KO to (shut the hell up with his special comment):



Go swallow your $1.99 'Support the Troops' magnet....made in China and .10 of the proceeds 'go to the troops in Iraq' or so the manufacturer tells you....

Sorry, we don't buy magic beans here troll....some advice for you...don't plant the beans...eat them.



To clarify, because we are dealing with an idiotic right wingnut noise machine psychophant...

magic beans = right wingnut noise machine, corporate owned, corporate run and designed to keep you voting against your own best interests....

Enjoy enlightenment...

If these people really support the troops, why do they keep voting for Republicans who cut funding for supplies, pay, and veterans' benefits?

Dear God... this man is insane...

From CNN:



Bush suggests Obama wants 'appeasement' of terrorists

Posted: 08:48 AM ET



In a particularly sharp blast from halfway around the world, President Bush suggested Thursday that Sen. Barack Obama and other Democrats are in favor of "appeasement" of terrorists in the same way U.S. leaders appeased Nazis in the run-up to World War II...



"We have heard this foolish delusion before," Bush said in remarks to the Israeli Knesset. "As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American Senator declared: 'Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.' We have an obligation to call this what it is — the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history."

[...]



"There are good and decent people who cannot fathom the darkness in these men and try to explain their words away," said Bush. "This is natural. But it is deadly wrong. As witnesses to evil in the past, we carry a solemn responsibility to take these words seriously. Jews and Americans have seen the consequences of disregarding the words of leaders who espouse hatred. And that is a mistake the world must not repeat in the 21st century."

I'm not a coffee drinker. Too bad they wouldn't give me a non-coffee substitute.



btw, in an effort to help with the financial woes of others during these crappy times, here's a couple of handy places to find free samples or really low priced stuff:

Spoofee



Free is Free



Walmart in particular gives away a *lot* of stuff. I'd never shop there, but I'll happily take free samples - including no shipping costs - off their hands.

Comment by Raine on 05/15/2008 14:09:22
:rage: Heya Dubya... about those NAZI apeasers

"Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.



His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.



The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator's action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy."






From 2004, Guardian UK.

I signed up for livejournal just to get to free is free. I've signed up for a bunch of free samples that should start arriving this week. I figure even a free sample will help out with the budgeting.
