***Racist judge - but since he's black, you won't hear much about this.
A black judge from western Pennsylvania rejected a plea agreement for a man accused of fighting with police during a traffic stop saying it was “a ridiculous plea that only goes to white boys.”
Allegheny County Judge Joseph Williams, who is black, claimed on Tuesday that a black defendant in the same situation would not have been treated as leniently.
***The two faces of Michelle Obama. This woman really is vapid, y'know?
***How to eliminate the deficit. From Nealz Nuze:
- If we cap federal spending at current levels and extend the Bush tax cuts the budget will be balanced by 2016.
- If we limit increases in government spending to a rate of 1 percent above inflation and population growth the budget will balance by 2017.
- If we limit increases in government spending to a rate of 2 percent above inflation and population growth the budget balances by 2020.

She walks in beautyby Lord Byron
|She walks in beauty, like the night|
|Of cloudless climes and starry skies;|
|And all that's best of dark and bright|
|Meet in her aspect and her eyes:|
|Thus mellowed to that tender light|
| Which heaven to gaudy day denies. |
|One shade the more, one ray the less,|
|Had half impaired the nameless grace|
|Which waves in every raven tress,|
|Or softly lightens o'er her face;|
|Where thoughts serenely sweet express|
| How pure, how dear their dwelling-place. |
|And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,|
|So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,|
|The smiles that win, the tints that glow,|
|But tell of days in goodness spent,|
|A mind at peace with all below,|
| A heart whose love is innocent.|
Beautiful poem, huh?
Please understand my friend, that where you find yourself tomorrow is
a function of the positive decisions and actions you take today
