Today I took a self walking tour the USS Missouri, the ultimate in 1940′s power projection. I imagined what it would be like to be a sailor on board her during a gun battle. It would have scared the shit out of me!
POPE Benedict last night claimed that placing a bible over an erect penis before intercourse is the only guaranteed way to prevent the spread of Aids.
Speaking before his tour of Africa, the Pontiff said Aids could only be tackled by the ‘traditional teaching of the church’ and not a latex rubber sheath that contains infected semen and prevents it from transferring the virus to another human being.
Experts said that either the Pope is suggesting the bible is used like a condom, or he doesn’t know what a condom is.
Dr Emma Bradford, of Reading University, said: “I guess you would have to rip out a few pages of Leviticus and then somehow fashion them into a condom-like device using lots and lots of masking tape (which may cause chafing).
Dr Bradford added: “Suggesting that the African Aids epidemic can be contained simply by reading the bible would be criminally insane.”
Do you know how many former Bush administration officials have been sentenced with jail time? The answer is eight! here is the list (so far):
Felipe Sixto, special assistant to President Bush for intergovernmental affairs. He pled guilty to embezzling $600,000 from the Center for a Free Cuba, a government-funded program and received a 30-month prison sentence.
Scooter Libby, former Vice President Dick Cheney’s chief-of-staff. He was sentenced to 30 months for his role in the leaking and coverup of CIA agent Valerie Plame’s identity to the press. President Bush quickly commuted the sentence. How nice of him!
Brian Doyle, Deputy Press Secretary at the Department of Homeland Security, was sentenced to five years in jail for attempting to use a computer to seduce a child.
Dusty Fago, Executive director of the CIA, received a three year prison sentence on corruption charges.
David Safavian, General Services Administration Chief-of-Staff and head procurement official went to prison for 18 months on charges related to the Jack Abramoff lobbyist scandal.
Italia Federici, political aide to Secretary of the Interior, Gail Norton, received a two month sentence in a halfway house for obstructing the Senate investigation into Abramoff and for tax evasion.
Steven Griles, who was the number two official at the Interior Department, also received 10 months in jail for his part in the Abramoff scandal.
Bob Stein, the Comptroller of the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq, received the longest sentence of any Bush official (as of yet) – 9 years in prison for money laundering, conspiracy and bribery.
This is not counting all the other convictions that didn‘t result in jail time and all the other investigations.
