This post is not titled

In the previous post, I made mention of the Times Square bomber. As previously reported, the Taliban in Pakistan originally took credit for the failed attack. Then, a white man was reported to have been spotted by the SUV. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that those reports are bunk. I’m owning up to my error and admit my mistake.  This is part of the 24-hour media: in major events like this,  poor reporting, the compulsive need to get information out rather than getting correct information out, becomes commonplace.

ThinkProgress backs me up. Media Matters also has an article focusing on the media’s reporting– or lack thereof– regarding this incident.

This incident reinvigorated the politics of terrorism. Of all people, Glenn Beck has some common sense regarding the incident. I feel intellectually dirty for agreeing with Beck for once.

On unrelated notes:

President Obama abandons Net Neutrality.

Another closeted,  anti-gay right-wing Christain nut job comes out of the closet.

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs lay the smackdown on a Fox reporter.

Here’s one we should all read.

For all you Star Wars fans:  this picture and caption might make you double-think the saga.

As you all know, an oil rig blew up in the Gulf of Mexico about two weeks ago. I could post myriad links, but I shall keep it simple with this one.  I am anti-offshore drilling and have good reason: incidents like this keep occurring. I believe that we should focus more on solar and wind power. What happens in roughly 20- 30 years when the earth starts to run out of oil? How high will oil prices rise? How much are you willing to pay at the pump? Ready to see the start of World War III as countries fight over the remaining oil?

I shall conclude this post with this. I don’t know whether to laugh because this is so damn ridiculous or  to cry because some people actually believe him.
