I would elect a honeybee because they are hard workers and good for pollenating crops as food for thought. However the only bee we shouldn’t have elected is Bush because I think hes from the Killer bees that were suppose to have come up from Texas. His stinger needs to be clipped because those elephants and donkeys can’t seem to find a serum for his venom.

I keep hearing there are millions of illegals in our country, yet it seems the federal government is doing nothing to resolve this issue. Is the rule of law just a catch-phrase the president uses when he wants to make a point in his favor?

I’m in high school and two months ago i made it to my school’s student council. I’m the president of one of the societies. each position in the council is very competitive and there is tough competition. among my group of friends, i’m the only one who is in the council except for once other friend who’s just a secretary of a society. ( In my school posts are NOT given on the basis of elections, rather interviews are held by the school admin and decisions are made with great care.)
a few days back the whole group of my friends sat together and told me that they think i’ve become very arrogant after becoming the president. they think i’m always bragging about my post and duties etc. my best friend was competing against me for the same post in the council as i was, but i was nominated and he wasn’t. So now my best friend also thinks that ive become arrogant and i talk abt the council all the time just to make him jealous.
But i don’t think that’s the case. i do talk about the council a lot. that’s because i’m really excited about it and i think it’s my friends duty to enjoy my excitement with me. i know at times i brag, but why should i not. after all its such a huge achievement for me.. shouldn’t my friends be more supportive. i think they’re jealous. seriously i’m not a lot better than them. we all are of almost the same caliber in terms or grades etc. its just that luck was on my side and i became the president.
my friends accused me of a lot of other things as well. my best friend asked me that why do i hurt him every second by mentioning council all the time. (SERIOUSLY I DON’T DO THAT. HE’S JUST EXAGGERATING. I do mention the council at times like maybe once a week and but i don’t say anything which will hurt him. he’s such a drama queen.) he further said that why do i think that his life is a joke to me. why does he have to apologize for the mistakes i make. why does whatever i do is right and whatever he does is wrong. why is it that i make him look bad by referring to his dumb family. why do i have to save the day. why can’t for once in my life i can accept that i’m wrong. and finally he said that he’s sick of me.
I mean WTF. when in life did i act as if his life is a joke to me. NEVER i swear. I have totally no idea what mistakes and apologies he’s talking about. he didn’t even tell me when i asked. he was like i do this stuff all the time and he dsn’t remember specific incidents. i swear again that i have never ever said any thing about his family. he himself refers to him family all the time and tells how his elder brother couldn’t do well in high school and how is cousin is very dumb. i specially make sure not to comment any thing about his family. he’s the once who’s always, literally always trying to better than me. every day he brag about everything from how his cell phone is much better than mine to how much fun he had while hanging out with his other group of friends to how much fun he had when he went for a world tour during the spring. the list goes on and on. i join him in his happiness rather than be jealous. i act happy even though i don’t even care about the stuff he’s bragging about. isn’t that what friends are for.
Please tell me if its my fault so that i can be a better person. i don’t want to hurt my friends at all. i just have a year left with them. next year we’ll go to different universities around the world and God know when we’ll meet again. i want to say good buy to them with good memories rather that thoughts of jealousy and arrogance. Please help what should i do. IS IT MY FAULT.
Thank you in advance.

When SNL aired for the first time in late 1975 my parents were absolutely dumbfounded by it. They couldn’t get over the irreverent themes–a sitting president spoofed, drugs, heavy drinking, –they felt the Carol Burnett Show was funnier.
But SNL hit a cord with me, and the kids my age. Also, my teachers, many of them just out of college were enamored by SNL. Every monday kids on the bus and home room went on and on about the SNL program the previous Saturday. At Halloween everyone wanted to be a Killer Bee or a Samaria.
My parents eventually banned SNL from our family TV dismissing it as juvenile and irrelevant.
But for me, SNL was the first show for me and my generation. It heralded in the Disco era and the Baby Boomers generation.
What do you think?

With all the lies he has told through the years, who honestly believes him anymore?
The Dems who voted for the giveaway did so mostly because they were scared by the threats of Wall Street, that if the rich didn’t get their handout, the market would go nuts and then it’s bye-bye stock-based pension and retirement funds.
And guess what? That’s exactly what Wall Street did! The largest, single-day drop in the Dow in the history of the New York Stock exchange. The news anchors last night screamed it out: Americans just lost 1.2 trillion dollars in the stock market!! It’s a financial Pearl Harbor! The sky is falling! Bird flu! Killer Bees!
Of course, sane people know that nobody “lost” anything yesterday, that stocks go up and down and this too shall pass because the rich will now buy low, hold, then sell off, then buy low again.
