There's a whole bunch of videos about him online...they pretty much all have dumb music and such, but the footage is great.

I can't believe I live here...I know that there are ignorant people everywhere but this state seems to need extra short buses.

Check this shit out. Some douche sends this letter to the paper and they actually print it.

I regularly attempt to intercede on behalf of innocent babies in the womb at our city's abortion mills. I remain astonished (and deeply saddened) by the number of clients entering clinic parking lots in cars bearing Indiana's "In God We Trust" license plates. Apparently that expressed trust does not extend to a trust in God's judgment that the human being he created has a purpose and a destiny that may be beyond our human understanding.

To me, the disconnect here is inexplicable.

Dr. David A. Nealy

Ok, so first...a lot of license branches ran out of regular license plates and handed out this other ones. So no, people didn't pick those plates out in all cases.

That's all I can say without just breaking into a barrage of cursing...but then, it gets better. The comments that people have left to this letter. Let's check some out...these came after somebody said that women should be allowed to exercise their right to control their own bodies.

"If they could control their own bodies they wouldn't be going to an abortion clinic."

"A woman's right should end at the point where they allow themselves to be impregnated. Once this occurs there is now a life on the line and the murder of this life should not be up to the one who allowed themselves to become pregnant. This is total irresponsibility, first they become pregnant when they do not want to have a child, and then they become a murderer by making the decision to have this Human being die because the babies life is not convenient for them in their lives."

Oh, and here's a gem. Yeah, the emphasis is mine.

"Pro-lifers DO care about children after they are born. Christian pro-lifers adopt babies more often than secular pro-aborts at a rate of 2-1. Also, Christian charity is the single biggest support to children-related charities in the nation---even bigger than government aid. That's because most government dollars in the so-called "children's aid" programs never make it to the kids."

There are so many things I could say, but I'm pretty much too stunned by such stupidity to say anything at all.

CARMEL, Ind. — Tabloid headlines in checkout aisles, lingerie displayed in mall windows and scantily clad models on magazine covers at the local bookstore have some in Carmel pleading for decency.

A resolution pledging the city’s dedication to a wholesome environment for families died 5-2 in the City Council last week, but some say that was only one battle in the identity war the Hamilton County city faces as it evolves from a bedroom community to an urban enclave.

“There’s a reason families have flocked to Carmel: They felt like they could raise their kids here,” said Jenny DeHeer, a Carmel native who petitioned officials to pass the measure. “Let’s have our urban city but without the negativity.”

Carmel’s population has almost doubled since 2000, and its landscape is rapidly changing with new restaurants, shops and galleries in its downtown arts district. It wants to attract young professionals, older adults and families.

Carmel officials say the community remains about as child-friendly as they come.
City zoning codes prohibit sexually oriented businesses, a move intended to keep negative elements away from families, said City Council President Rick Sharp.

Sharp, who moved to Carmel from the Miami area 15 years ago, said the decency discussion proves Carmel is wholesome.

“We are arguing about Victoria’s Secret displays as a matter of public policy debate. How do you get more family-friendly than that?” Sharp asked. “There are places much better suited to take that fight than Carmel.”

Fighters on the decency front acknowledge Carmel is no Las Vegas or New York City.

But they say sexual images are damaging, no matter where they’re viewed.

“I’m concerned about our children. Why are they having sex at 12?” Victoria’s Secret protester Lori Baxter said in an interview before the council vote March 17. “Could it be that we’ve promoted sex so long, we’ve become desensitized?”

Some experts question whether removing those images is the answer.

Judy Myers-Walls, a Purdue University child-development professor who specializes in talking with children about sensitive issues, said an environment that’s too pristine limits children’s ability to make their own judgments.

“If we try to protect them from everything, then they’re not going to be prepared when reality faces them,” she said.

Some Carmel parents agree and have spoken out against what they perceive as community censorship.

Carrie Bressers, a seven-year Carmel resident and pregnant mother of one, spoke against the resolution last week.

Bressers, who grew up in Chicago’s south suburbs and lives near Carmel’s new arts district, said she sees the movement as an effort to make an already wholesome place a “religious utopia.”

“I understand that they want to try to perfect (Carmel),” Bressers said. “(But) these women are overreacting to growth. They’re banding together because they don’t want their children to see as much as what we’re offering.”

DeHeer said she saw nothing wrong with trying to make the city flawless. She describes the Carmel where she grew up as a “perfect bubble,” and she thinks it should stay that way.

“An ideal place to live?” DeHeer said. “How is that a bad thing?”

I'm terrible, but this cracked me up...just imagining a little kid saying that in such a matter of fact way. Hehehe.

A 12 year-old boy was arrested in Bloomington, Illinois last Thursday night (March 20) after he threw a rock at the windshield of rapper Soulja Boy’s tour bus.

According to the Bloomington Pantagraph, the unidentified youth attacked the bus at around 7:40 p.m. near the Hampton Inn West on 906 Maple Rd. Soulja Boy had performed at the nearby U.S. Cellular Coliseum the previous night.

Bloomington Police Lt. Pete Avery said that when officers asked the boy why he did it, he replied simply, "I hate Soulja Boy."

None of the passengers on the bus were injured during the incident.

What the hell am I supposed to do when I want to purchase movies that weren't ever put out on DVD? I don't have a VCR anymore and I already have them on VHS; one is just broken.

Damn my taste in music and movies...why can't I want simple CDs and DVDs that you can find at Wal-mart, Best Buy, or even the over priced mall stores like FYE?

if Indiana is 13th that doesn't speak well for other places... [Nov. 18th, 2007|12:20 pm]

Is it just your imagination, or do many of your fellow motorists lack even a rudimentary grasp of traffic laws?

Well, if a test administered by GMAC Insurance is any indication, one in six people cruising our highways and byways -- roughly 36 million licensed drivers -- would flunk their driver's test if they had to take it today. Not only that, but based on the 2007 GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test data the state with the most road-going dummies is New York, while the most knowledgeable ones are out West to Idaho.

"The results were pretty eye-opening to us," says Gary Kusumi, president and CEO of GMAC Insurance Personal Lines. "Not only did they indicate that there are wide differences in terms of state scores, but there were significant trends that demonstrated the general public might have forgotten must-know items from when they first took their driver's test."

"Two questions consistently sent respondents skidding into the weeds," Kusumi notes. The first has to do with the correct action to take when approaching a steady yellow traffic light (Answer: Stop if it is safe to do so.). A whopping 84 percent of respondents spun their wheels on that one. The next biggest puzzler after that question had to do with the proper following distance from a car in front of you (Answer: Two seconds).

Also of interest from the GMAC Insurance test:

• Drivers 35 and older were more likely to pass

• Illinois, Georgia, Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Massachusetts were the least knowledgeable states overall, with average scores under 75 percent

• Fifty-five percent of the respondents didn't know how many feet before making a left or right turn to activate their turn signals

• The national average score was 77.1 percent

"We believe that the adoption of a uniform driver curriculum will significantly improve the driving skills of Americans," says Adele Kristiansson, a spokesperson for the National Road Safety Foundation. "Some states do not require mandatory education for novice drivers, and some states require it," adds Kristiansson. "My organization is concerned because driver education is an orphaned child and it's suffering."

On the Web at www.nationalroadsafety.org, and offering free programs to the public, the National Road Safety Foundation was created in 1961 by Fraydun Manocherian, after two youthful friends were killed in automobile accidents in Westchester County, New York.

According to GMAC Insurance, 18 percent of respondents failed its National Driving Test in 2007, compared with 9 percent in 2006. The test can be taken online at www.gmacinsurance.com.

The following state rankings were released for the 2007 GMAC Insurance National Drivers Test:

1. Idaho.
