Wow, we have a black president. So, now why is it every state is asking for a handout like they think Obama is going to be suckered into giving them money. I mean I know it aint fair that the banks got bailed out, but it seems state officials everywhere wants bail out money. I wouldn't be surprised if Arnold Schwartznegger didn't start the fires in Cali himself. There are 150-60 million people in the US. If they gave everybody 1 million dollars thats only 150-60 million dollars, and we'll all… Continue

There’s a freak show going on at Atlanta Hartsfield and the star is YOU! :)
A new x-ray machine installed at Hartsfield gives security screeners a lot more than just a glance at what you’re carrying — and I don’t mean weapons or bags.
Check out this hilarious clip of the upcoming reunion episode of the The Real Housewives of ATL. During one of many heated conversations, Kim, the tone deaf country singer, hauls off and calls your favorite ghetto gal, Nene, a “b*tch”.

If you haven’t noticed I try not to straight “report” on news that’s already been pretty well covered on the net or blogosphere and when I do address them its because I’m providing at least what I believe to be a new perspective, angle or opinion.
