Infomercials with Alexander Haig

Sure gonna miss this guy. He did SO much for the US & the whole world... not only when he cleaned up the mess as Chief of Staff at the end of Watergate, not just when Reagan was shot ("I'm in control here!"), but most recently when he was also concerned with the common American's battle with mold: (sniff)

And yet another illustration of Mr. Haig's goodness, purity, decency &, one might even say "heroism," as he displays his deep concern over our personal security:

Speaking with the man who is "...always a pleasure & a delight..." Homeland Security Industries Association President, Bruce Aitken... "God bless our country, & you & yours." (huh?)

American Credit Cards

Just FYI for those of you using American credit cards...

  1. The new rules that are now taking effect, allow credit card companies to begin charging interest on purchases at the time of the transaction. So even if you normally pay your balance(s) every month, it is possible that you will be charged interest from the time of the transaction. Not all companies are doing this. Talk with your credit card company to find out.
  2. There are several loopholes to the new rules. It is important to carefully & thoroughly read every single communication from your credit card company.
  3. Many notifications from your credit card company will be sent in envelopes that deceptively resemble "junk mail." Don't throw away anything from your credit card company without reading it first.
  4. There are no more restrictions on where fees can be charged. They will be charging more hidden fees than ever before.

There are several places online to find more information about this subject. It's important to stay well informed, though, because we are more at risk for being cheated now than before.

That high, bird-like trilling sound coming from your TV...

Kathryn Grayson died Wednesday at age 88.

Ms. Grayson always wanted to be an opera star, but was cast in MGM movies instead. It was said of Ms. Grayson when she was young, that if she becomes an opera singer, she will only be known to opera enthusiasts. But if she's in movies, she'll be known to the world.

War Criminals: Arrest Warrants Requested

Timothy Bancroft-Hinchey Pravda January 27, 2010 International arrest warrants have been requested for George W. Bush, Richard (Dick) Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, George Tenet, Condoleeza Rice and Alberto Gonzales at the International Criminal Court, The Hague, Netherlands.

Professor of Law Francis A. Boyle of the University of Illinois College of Law in Champain, United States of America, has issued a Complaint with the Prosecutor for the International Criminal Court against the above-mentioned for their practice of “extraordinary rendition” (forced disappearance of persons and subsequent torture) in Iraq and for criminal policy which constitutes Crimes against Humanity in violation of the Rome Statute which set up the ICC.

As such, the Accused (mentioned above) are deemed responsible for the commission of crimes within the territories of many States signatories of the Rome Statute, in violation of Rome Statute Articles 5 (1)(b), 7 (1)(a), 7 (1)(e), 7 (1)(g), 7(1)(h), 7(1)8i) and 7(1)(k). Despite the fact that the USA is not a signatory State, the ICC has the jurisdiction to prosecute under Article 12 (2)(a) of the Rome Statute.

This Article stipulates that the Court may exercise its jurisdiction if one or more States in which the conduct in question occurred has accepted the jurisdiction of the Court. Furthermore, the forced disappearance of persons and torture in deemed by the Rome Statute as a Crime against Humanity, one which is still ongoing.

The Exercise of Jurisdiction may be activated under Article 13, with respect to a crime committed under Article 5 if the Prosecutor has initiated an investigation. Professor Boyle, in his issue of complaint, respectfully requested that such an investigation be initiated.

The issue of complaint states “about 100 human beings have been subjected to enforced disappearances and subsequent torture by the Accused”, adds that some of them could still be alive today, and that an investigation could save these lives. Regarding those whose enforced disappearances led to their deaths, the Complaint requests a process of explanation and clarification for what would be a murder investigation.

The Funts are not a band. The Funts are a species. They come from Funt, a black hole on the other side of Uranus. There are no male or female Funts. Each Funt is its own gender. They walk amongst you. These are some known Funts:

DJ Funt (aka Funt Funt) Lady Funt (aka Gab Funt) Stud Funt (aka Alice) Her Royal Funtness (HRF aka So-fi) Domina La Funt (aka Lafunt) Fish Funt (aka Chicken of the Sea) Baby Funt (aka that girl with the blue hair who begs the question where the hell she comes from) Big Funt (aka Eric) Fart Funt (aka Jason)
