@OhioCoastie guaranteed vacations. What a load of crap. That's what places like Greece, Spain, Italy and Portugal do. And they are bankrupt — RIP Walker 2016 (@rodentpolitics) July 24, 2014 Hey, we get that your business depends on people taking trips but petitioning the government to mandate paid time off is a pretty sleazy way to increase business.

Located near Bloemfontein in South Africa, the shanty town themed [More]
#Obama calls #Romney an "amateur." Then releases an ad starring Big Bird. #Pathetic — Couranto (@Couranto) October 9, 2012 Just in case you thought silly season was over, climb aboard and fasten your seat belts for the Obama campaign’s final descent into self-parody. Team Obama is out today with a new attack ad featuring … Big Bird. I cannot believe this Big Bird ad is real. — Jay Caruso (@JayCaruso) October 9, 2012 Oh, it’s real. And it’s spectacular.

If you're traveling 80 miles per hour, how long does it take you to go 80 miles? DUMB BLONDE? http://t.co/dXJs3B0y Still laughing, LOL #tcot — Cool Car Guy (@JoeSixpackSays) March 23, 2012 ABC News via Yahoo: If you’re traveling 80 miles per hour, how long does it take you to go 80 miles? That’s the relatively simple math question Travis Chambers posed to wife Chelsea on a road trip from Logan, Utah, to Boise, Idaho, to visit her family while his camera was rolling.

That’s why instead of tweeting about drowning polar bears or how wealthy white people are, Patricia gets incensed at a video released today showing a university professor ranting against “closet racists” — that is, of course, Republicans. Partial transcript of the professor’s unhinged remarks via Campus Reform: “If you go to the Republican convention in Florida, you see all of [More]
Obama is on The View and I remember how he got elected… Because he's so normal haha — kathar (@katimeowww) August 13, 2012 This morning, ABC aired an episode of ‘The View’ featuring Barack Obama. Despite the fact that the show was a rerun from this past spring, for dedicated Obamaphiles, it was as fresh and glorious as it was the first time around. Clearly, the ladies of ‘The View’ just can’t get enough of Barack the Magnificent, and they’re not alone. Hope you’ve got your drool buckets handy … https://twitter.com/herrokitty85/status/235038254569775104 Just watched Barack Obama speak on "The View" and [More]
