GOP Rep. Buyer Blasts Acting Dem Speaker:

Regardless of your political preference this is interesting to watch. Now I'm sure there is another side to the story; regardless he does carry valued points (Forget the Dem jabs. Just take all the sides out and place these people around an office table with Roberts rules)

Have you ever tried contacting your Representative at any level? If so and if they responded back, 1. Did their response show you integrity or was it a generic template of "thank you for you interest"... 2.Have they or you followed up on the subject?

If you haven't contacted your Representative, why not?

We looked into this to find out what happened.

This is the latest video from the Today show expressing the concerns of the new TSA guidelines for airline screening.  We have a poll open asking "Will you use the MSPs Body Scanner?" Thanks for the vote.
There are  more videos about body scanners throughout the world on Utube.

What do you think?  Is the body scanners a necessary evil and do we need to just "suck it up" as someone mentioned to me.  Interesting.

We'd love to hear your thoughts of the TSA scanners and pat-downs. 

The TSA Blog
This is the OFFICIAL TSA Blog.  It sources the outcry of the rumors to acculturate events that happened.  The TSA has even linked security video with the events in question so the public can make their own informed decisions.

Although HM Queen Elizabeth II is making her official debut on Facebook this week, some of her fans have been operating a page in her honor for about two years.

Well here we are again! Sometimes you just can't seem to win, but the show still goes on.

Sorry that it’s a bit difficult to hear me. Even with all the tests before the show, there’s that one variable that creeps into the works and you only find out later when it shows up. Kinda like that one night stand you had and there’s something odd on your lip that next morning.

Thanks for hanging out with us and hopefully we'll have things firing on all cylinders next time.

Here’s the list of topics we chatted about during the show and well catch ya on the flipside.

Wear wristwatch? Use e-mail? Not for Class of '14
The Associated Press
Tuesday, August 17, 2010 Every year, Beloit College in Beloit, Wis., releases its Mindset List to give a snapshot of the world view of the incoming freshmen class. The list for the Class of 2014:

Some Highlights

1. Few in the class know how to write in cursive.

2. E-mail is just too slow, and they seldom if ever use snail mail. Texting – Asians pushed and used longer – easier to hear than cell phone

3. "Go west, young college grad," has always implied "and don't stop until you get to Asia and learn Chinese along the way."

7. "Caramel macchiato" and "venti half-cafvanilla latte" have always been street corner lingo.

18. Fergie is a pop singer, not a princess.

19. They never twisted the coiled handset wire aimlessly around their wrists while chatting on the phone.

Dogs can sense cancer
By Maggie Koerth for MSN Health & Fitness
Researchers wondered if canines could be trained to smell the chemical difference between patients with cancer and those without. So far, the results have been promising. Studies show test dogs can accurately pick out patients with lung, breast, ovarian and bladder cancers. In some cases, the pups have hit accuracy rates as high as 97 percent.

Pet Insurance

Hambone Awards
Every vote counts, and this August 2 through 16, we want yours! After a year of waiting, it’s time once again for you, the people, to choose the recipient of the 2010 VPI Hambone Award for the most unusual pet insurance claim of the year. Competition is tough among this year’s twelve nominees
Each year, VPI looks through the more than 1 million claims submitted to the company, and the most unusual of the bunch receives the annual VPI Hambone Award. Last year’s Hambone Award went to Lulu, a hungry bulldog that gobbled up 15 pacifiers, a bottle cap, and piece of a basketball! Lulu made a full recovery and went on to star in a Rachael Ray Show segment about the VPI Hambone Award. The VPI Hambone Award is named in honor of a VPI-insured dog that got stuck in a refrigerator and ate an entire Thanksgiving ham while waiting for someone to find him. The dog was eventually found, with a licked-clean hambone and a mild case of hypothermia.

"Dear Shane,

The first rule of politics is you never just tell the truth.

You are receiving this message from the Jennifer Brunner Committee because you've signed up to receive emails from the Jennifer Brunner Committee or other Ohio progressive organizations. If you do not wish to receive emails from the Jennifer Brunner Committee please click here to unsubscribe.
The truth makes people uncomfortable, and sometimes it hurts -- so politicians avoid it, even when it seems nonsense to do so. Why speak your mind when you can hire political consultants to coach you on a safe "message"? Why go with your gut when the political establishment wants you to stick to the party line?

I say that the first rule of politics is what's wrong with politics. That's why I won't follow it.

We've all seen where a lack of candor in politics gets us. Leaders who promise one thing but do another. Insiders making deals that seal their careers but sell out the public. Politicians acting against their better judgment because they think staying in office is how to make things better for the people they serve."
