    Miley Cyrus has dismissed rumors she’s undergone breast enhancement surgery, insisting, “these babies are all mine.”

  5. We can all breath a sigh of relief. America’s Got Talent judging is in good hands. They’ve hired Howard Stern. (Yea, that’s snark font.)

    Speaking of cold and dark, the shortest day of the year is coming and everything gets better after that. I had to walk the dog in the dark last night…at 5PM.

      How depressing! Are you in the PNW? We’re having a very rainy Northwest-type winter AND are on “orange alert” due to crazy-scary windstorms.

    Strange bedfellows: this bill actually brought together Rand Paul & Dianne Feinstein. Obama, of course, caved as usual. Now we can picked up and thrown into Guantanamo (another false promise of Obama’s to close the facility. Oh wait, isn’t he a progressive?) indefitely with no due process and an annual “review” if we stockpile food. Bizarro world.

    Americans face Guantánamo detention after Obama climbdown

    Barack Obama has abandoned a commitment to veto a new security law that allows the military to indefinitely detain without trial American terrorism suspects arrested on US soil who could then be shipped to Guantánamo Bay.

    Human rights groups accused the president of deserting his principles and disregarding the long-established principle that the military is not used in domestic policing. The legislation has also been strongly criticised by libertarians on the right angered at the stripping of individual rights for the duration of “a war that appears to have no end”.

    The law, contained in the defence authorisation bill that funds the US military, effectively extends the battlefield in the “war on terror” to the US and applies the established principle that combatants in any war are subject to military detention.

    The legislation’s supporters in Congress say it simply codifies existing practice, such as the indefinite detention of alleged terrorists at Guantánamo Bay. But the law’s critics describe it as a draconian piece of legislation that extends the reach of detention without trial to include US citizens arrested in their own country.

    Paul was backed by Senator Dianne Feinstein.

    “Congress is essentially authorising the indefinite imprisonment of American citizens, without charge,” she said. “We are not a nation that locks up its citizens without charge.”

    In fact, the heads of several security agencies, including the FBI, CIA, the director of national intelligence and the attorney general objected to the legislation. The Pentagon also said it was against the bill.

      I know TDS is supposed to be funny, but being a janitor is a stepping stone for a lot of people. It was for me. Newt’s job plan would probably create more jobs than the Stimulus.
