I'm tempted to send Rep Betty Borwin a letter simply saying, "WTF?" Really, her quotes are just sad. It's disgusting how people with narrow attitudes are able to obtain high positions of power and make decisions that affect the general public.

Obama's reaction to the pirate situation is weird. It doesn't seem to be a huge priority for him. I don't get it!

It's no ones business what name those poor people have. Too bad if you can't pronounce it. That is so dumb.

This was also pretty priceless from the article about the Rep from Texas: " I'm sure that Ko's eyes are way too squinty for him to be able to see that you have his and all his exotic brethren from the Far East's best interest at heart." Hilarious

"Maybe the elephant can be featured in a local gay pride parade...LOL!" :rotfl: I still love the story about the two gay penguins who got to raise a little penguin together. Too cute.

"do you think that it would behoove you and your citizens to adopt a name that we could deal with more readily here?" I think Rep. Betty is off her rocker. Honestly do we have to keep dumbing our selves down it's embarrassing. This is suppose to be the age of mind expansion not mind restriction. Piracy is not something to be solved it's something to be dealt with and it has been the ship is on it's way to it's destination. What we have now is a hostage situation. When you have an American citizen with a gun to their head I'm sorry but the entire navy fleet surrounding the boat and it won't make one bit of difference. Homosexuality is no stranger to certain other species interesting considering some people think it's a choice and not natural. Maybe the elephant can be featured in a local gay pride parade...LOL! How do you solve a problem like Mariaa! How do you catch a cloud and pin it down! How do you find a word that means Mariaa! LOL!! That's a cute and hilarious story I'm glad she's alright. Well at least now she'll be able to make bank because you know people are going to want a knit sweater from the women in the rubble.

I have to say the suggestion of name change is very inappropriate.

"Why hasn't Obama solved piracy? " Umm, because he's only been in the WH for a couple months, and he hasn't had an opportunity to sit down and talk with them?

Wow. Half of these articles border on the absurd. I love the one about the 98 year old woman knitting for 30 hours under the rubble. That's what you call a survivor.

I know MANY Chinese immigrants who have done this anyway. I dont agree with making them do it. I mean there are american names now i cant pronounce.
