Obama’s motorcade fined for London congestion fees

London Mayor Boris Johnson is raising a stink over minor congestion charges he says President Obama's motorcade incurred while visiting his city, the London Evening Standard reports. Johnson has fined the United States 120 pounds (nearly $200 U.S. dollars) in congestion levies--10 pounds per vehicle--for the presidential motorcade used during Obama's state visit in May.London officials told AFP that the American Embassy owes 5.3 million pounds ($8.7 million dollars) in unpaid congestion fines--known as C-charges--which were first established in 2003. Since the roads weren't closed during the president's visit, he is subject to the fines, Johnson says.
In speaking with the Standard, the Embassy defended its refusal to pay, citing the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which prohibits "this sort of tax on diplomatic missions."

"The Murdochs testified before parliament and did something that not many powerful people would have the courage to do: They blamed others." –Craig Ferguson





I think it’s cowardly to attack an 80-year-old man with a pie. If the attacker had any courage, he’d go after Murdoch like I do: in the middle of the night from 5,000 miles away. –Craig Ferguson


The Kenyan Versus the Morman


A poll released on Wednesday carried warning signs for President Barack Obama's re-election chances in 2012.

Subject: Truthers



Thought you may like reading this man's definition of a Truther/Birther, etc...........


"Truther theories may be nonsense, but the disturbing habits of mind underlying them - a nihilistic distrust of government, total alienation from conventional politics, a need to reduce the world's complexity to good vs. evil fables, the molding of secular politics with apocalyptic End-is-Nigh religiosity, and a rejection of the basic tools of logic and rational discourse - have become threats all across our intellectual landscape."- Definition of a Truther, by Jonathan Kay, author of "Among The Truthers: A Journey Through America's Growing Conspiracist Underground" -Published by Harpers, 2011


Thanks for writing, Ed.

I wonder what would happen if you gave a "Truther" truth serum?

My guess would be projectile vomiting.

Here's a big idea: Writing your name in the sand so large that it can be seen from space.

In case you don't know who this sandbar belongs to, these Google Earth images will indeed remind you that it belongs to Sheikh Hamad bin Hamdan Al Nahyan. He paid God-knows-what to dig canals spelling out his name near the Arabian Gulf. At two miles long, the letters HAMAD is visible from space, thereby assuring that when aliens finally arrive they will know which one of us is the supreme ruler they should kidnap first.
