Our Wacky World—3/7/2011

"I am the inventor and developer of, and control the majority interest in, a patented new computer technology called AngelBase™ that numerous well-credentialed experts agree can, quite literally, redefine the computer industry... AngelBase will shift the computing paradigm. People will start thinking about information and utilizing computers in a whole new way that greatly empowers them and that expands their ability to love. This will shake the foundation of a nearly trillion-dollar industry (computer hardware, software and information technologies, including the Internet). Many people believe AngelBase will escalate me, over the next decade, from member of the middle class—to billionaire."

"...The caller told his story with passion and verve, and then asked the station’s listeners for their advice on how to treat his clueless pal... Or at least he would have, had this been a real conversation. The young man—who asked to remain nameless in order to protect his chances for future employment—was an actor, and the staged call an audition. A short while later, he received the following email: “Thank you for auditioning for Premiere On Call,” it said. “Your audition was great! We’d like to invite you to join our official roster of ‘ready-to-work’ actors.” The job, the email indicated, paid $40 an hour, with one hour guaranteed per day."

"The fact your police department just bought an armored vehicle does not make you safer. It's going to make you poorer, because your taxes will go up to pay for training and maintenance." In light of today's budget-strapped environments, we, too, wonder whether the federal government should be paying for small counties and towns to have tanks to use against their citizens.

'According to Arabic language broadcasts intercepted and interpreted by Lipkin and his team, "The Moslem world is saying that President Obama wants amnesty for the current Hispanic 12 million illegal immigrants in the US in order to pave the way for the next wave of tens of millions of illegals from the Middle East to the United States, leading to 50 to 100 million Muslims living in the US before the end of Obama’s second term, which will be brought forth by these new US citizens voting for their savior, Obama."'
