Up until the last 12 hours, 2008 was shaping up as a mediocre year for celebrity mug shots. And then ex-NBA superstar Charles Barkley got arrested on a drunk driving charge. The arrest report contains some incredible quotes from the former NBA star, who spoke with Arizona cops about, um, oral favors. As Sir Charles would say, that's terrible:

some people might find mr. goins words hard to understand. in reality though, mr. goins speaks volumes. he was the only citizen who stood up and questioned what the city and cleco is really up to. he should be commended. too bad five councilmen: myron lawson, everett hobbs, roosevelt johnson, harry silver and chuck fowler, didnt heed his words of wisdom.
check out the silly jack-boot in the background running a clock on everyone. the police are not interested in solving crimes or ferreting out corruption.

cynthia mckinney on a peaceful, humanitarian mission to deliver medical supplies to gaza when the boat she was on the "dignity" was rammed three times by the zionist israeli navy.
ms. mckinney calls on president-elect obama to say something about the humanitarian crisis being experienced right now by the people of gaza. good luck with that, seeing as how obama has surrounded himself with zionist, israel - firster jewish criminals and who can forget how he dishonored himself this past june when he groveled to aipac.
former congresswoman mckinney infers that todays incident is reminiscent of the zionist regime's thursday 08 june 1967 unprovoked, false-flag attack upon the uss liberty in which israel murdered thirty-four american sailors and injured many more.

Kop Busters Episode #1 Free Yolanda!
It's called an informant plant. The Odessa narcotics unit illegally compelled an informant to plant drugs on Yolanda Madden. The informant testified in federal court he planted the drugs on her and he passed a polygraph confirming the same.
Yolanda also passed a polygraph along with a hair follicle and urine test. Our broken criminal justice system ignored the evidence and railroaded her through court sentencing her to 8 years in prison.
Her father hired KopBusters, a new reality show produced by NeverGetBusted, whereby Barry and Candi along with their detectives set up stings across America to catch crooked Kops.
KopBusters rented a house in Odessa, Texas and began growing two small Christmas trees under a grow light similar to those used for growing marijuana.
When faced with a suspected marijuana grow, the police usually use illegal FLIR cameras and/or lie on the search warrant affidavit claiming they have probable cause to raid the house.
Instead of conducting a proper investigation which usually leads to no probable cause, the Kops lie on the affidavit claiming a confidential informant saw the plants and/or the police could smell marijuana coming from the suspected house.
The trap was set and less than 24 hours later, the Odessa narcotics unit raided the house only to find KopBuster's attorney waiting under a system of complex gadgetry and spy cameras that streamed online to the KopBuster's secret mobile office nearby.
KopBuster's attorney, Adam Reposa, was handcuffed and later released when eleven KopBuster detectives arrived with the media in tow to question the illegal raid. The police refused to give KopBusters the search warrant affidavit which is suspected to contain the lies regarding the probable cause. ~ read more

now that israhell has launched its latest attacks upon the christian and muslim people of gaza, its worth taking a look to see where the zionist regime of israel gets its power to undertake its murderous actions.
israel's power is mostly due to the support from the united states government whose support is in turn demanded by millions of american evangelical "christians" (christian zionists) who themselves have been deceived for the past 100 years by false and deceptive doctrines.
the christian zionist reprobates quote from genesis 12:3 "i will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee," as evidence that christians must support israhell and jews in in everything they do, no matter how ungodly, repugnant or unchristlike or risk being cursed by god.
the apostle paul, (nee saul of tarsus) in galatians chapter 3 clearly explains that the "blessing" spoken of in genesis 12:3 is jesus christ! not jews and certainly not israhell.
in titus chapter 1, christians are told DO NOT GIVE HEED TO JEWISH FABLES. who are you going to believe? the scriptures which were written thousands of years ago or these fake, lying celebrity preachers?

george w bush federal judge appointee jay zainey orders that the birth certificate of a same sex couple's adoptive son bear the name of both "fathers"
this would seem to be in line with the bush regime's general destruction of traditional values. whats more - the federal judge is catholic!
By JANET McCONNAUGHEY
Associated Press Writer
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A same-sex couple in California has won a federal court ruling that their adopted son's Louisiana birth certificate must bear the names of both adoptive fathers.
The facts are so clear that no trial is needed, U.S. District Judge Jay Zainey wrote.
Louisiana's Office of Vital Records must give full faith and credit to the New York State court in which Oren Adar and Mickey Ray Smith of San Diego adopted the boy, he ruled Monday. The office had refused to issue a birth certificate listing both as the boy's legal parents.
Zainey wrote that Louisiana law requires a new certificate when it gets an adoption decree, and the law does not include any limits or restrictions. The state's arguments would make the adoption law's "plain language ... meaningless by reading in restrictions and requirements that simply are not present in the text of the statute," he wrote. ~ read more

At 12:14 a.m. on July 30, 1945, the USS INDIANAPOLIS CA-35 was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in the Philippine Sea and sank in 12 minutes. Of 1,196 men on board, approximately 300 went down with the ship. The remainder, about 900 men, were left floating in shark-infested waters with no lifeboats and most with no food or water. The ship was never missed, and by the time the survivors were spotted by accident four days later only 316 men were still alive. ~ read more at ussindianapolis.org

$350 billion dollars have been spent so far on the wall street bailout. this is more than what was spent on the marshall plan, more than the apollo moon program and nearly as much as was spent to build the nations interstate highway system and the banks wont tell what they are doing with the money. there is another $350 billion dollars waiting to be spent.
louisiana congressmen who voted for the wall street bailout (H.R. 1424) were: rodney alexander, charles boustany, jim mccrery and charlie melancon. louisiana senators katrina mary landrieu snellings and david vitter voted no.
elijah cummings the congressman interviewed for this ac360 piece also voted for the wall street bailout a/k/a emergency economic stabilization act of 2008.

farmington new mexico community still sending kind thoughts to injured jonesville la bull rider corbin carpenter
excerpt from a piece captioned "check your list, mr. claus" written by farmington, new mexico, the daily-times, sports writer, darren vaughan:
Please be kind to Louisiana cowboy Corbin Carpenter this year and give him the chance to fulfill his dream of competing in rodeo again. He gave us all quite a scare back in July when he suffered a broken neck after falling off of a bull, but he's been a true inspiration since as he's regained his ability to walk. It'd be a gift not only to him, but to all of us, to see him get back in the arena again.

on 09 december 2008, texas republican, louie gohmert, introduced his H.R. 7309. a bill "to amend the internal revenue code of 1986 to suspend employment and income taxes for the first two months of 2009, and for other purposes."
according to the library of congress, as of 1:09 p.m. cst, monday 15 december 2008, rep. gohmert's bill has thirty-seven co-sponsors:
surprisingly -- or not -- not one louisiana congressman has signed on to co-sponsor rep. gohmert's bill.
rep.'s mccrery, cazayoux and jefferson, perhaps can be excused since they are all on their way out of the congress.
however, there is no excuse for republican rep.'s rodney alexander and charles boustany (who both voted for the wall street bailout) for not co-sponsoring this bill. nor is there any excuse for democratic rep. charlie melancon's (another rat who voted for the wall street bailout) not co-sponsoring this bill either. the other republican -- rep. steve scalise, his name is also inexplicably absent.
call rodney alexander [contact], charles boustany [contact]. charlie melancon [contact]. and steve scalise [contact] and ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 7309 and to do everything within their power to pass this bill.

One of the cleverest films I have seen is Groundhog Day, in which Bill Murray plays a TV weatherman who finds himself stuck in time. At first he deludes himself that the same day and the same people and the same circumstances offer new opportunities. Finally, his naivety and false hope desert him and he realises the truth of his predicament and escapes. Is this a parable for the age of Obama?
Having campaigned with "Change you can believe in", President-elect Barack Obama has named his A-team. They include Hillary Clinton, who voted to attack Iraq without reading the intelligence assessment and has since threatened to "totally obliterate" Iran on behalf of a foreign power, Israel.
During his primary campaign, Obama referred repeatedly to Clinton's lies about her political record. When he appointed her secretary of state, he called her "my dear friend".
Obama's slogan is now "continuity". ~ read more

So who is Bernard L. Madoff? Apart from running his "investment company" and being a former chairman and director of the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASDAQ), Madoff is a very committed Jewish Zionist who has served as the treasurer of two leading Zionist organizations.
Like Richard Fuld of Lehman Brothers, Sanford Weill of Citibank, and Maurice Greenberg of A.I.G., the major culprits behind the $2 trillion bail-out, Madoff is another New York Zionist Jew who has committed a massive financial fraud and cheated Americans and others out of untold billions of dollars.~ read more

Yes, some of my best friends have tails. Knowing nothing about cats years ago when I first brought Teddy and Flicka home, I remember spending a nervous night before they arrived. I made a promise that I would never treat them as my cats, but always as my friends. It was the best promise I ever made.
For these animals have taught me so much. They insisted that I get past those early sad experiences of animals, and open my heart to a depth of love that I never thought I could know. They’ve given me hours of fun. They’ve shared their sadness and illnesses with me, and have allowed me to heal them.
Teddy and Flicka were part of my healing from my nearly fatal illness, and today I notice that whenever I am down or sad, my kitty friends make every effort to cheer me up or at least to let me know that they care. ~ read more

Louisiana man gets fat lip for refusing to have sex with girlfriend
DECEMBER 10--Meet Brittany Phillips. Early Saturday morning, the 19-year-old Louisiana woman wanted some sex from her boyfriend. But Todd Stewart, 35, was apparently not in the mood. In fact, he tried to push Phillips off of him in the bedroom of the pair's West Monroe home.
That much the couple can agree upon, according to Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office reports. Phillips claims Stewart became violent after rebuffing her advances. Stewart told an investigator that he left the bedroom to sleep on a living room couch, but that Phillips "would not leave him alone."
At some point, he added, things got physical and he was stabbed in the lower lip with "a long metal object which appeared to be a knife." For her part, the frisky Phillips acknowledged to Deputy Shane Smith that she struck Stewart, but said it was done "to protect herself."
Phillips, was charged with aggravated battery, R.S. 14:34, while a bloody Stewart, seen here, was charged with simple battery R.S.14:35. Phillips was also booked on a pair of outstanding warrants, for simple battery and damage to property. ~ read more

we're not holding our breath, but it should be interesting to see how some of the gannett/town talk 'your mail' fake christian, gas-bags like ruth barden, spin this because either the entire bible is literally true or none of it is.
US President George W. Bush said in an interview Monday that the Bible is "probably not" literally true and that a belief that God created the world is compatible with the theory of evolution. Nabil Shaath says: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I'm driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, "George, go and fight those terrorists in Afghanistan." And I did, and then God would tell me, "George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq …" And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, "Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East." And by God I'm gonna do it.'" ~ god told me to invade iraq, bush tells palestinian ministers ~ bbc
"I think you can have both," Bush, who leaves office January 20, told ABC television, adding "You're getting me way out of my lane here. I'm just a simple president."
But "evolution is an interesting subject. I happen to believe that evolution doesn't fully explain the mystery of life," said the president, an outspoken Christian who often invokes God in his speeches.
"I think that God created the Earth, created the world; I think the creation of the world is so mysterious it requires something as large as an almighty and I don't think it's incompatible with the scientific proof that there is evolution," he told ABC television.
Asked whether the Bible was literally true, Bush replied: "Probably not. No, I'm not a literalist, but I think you can learn a lot from it."
"The important lesson is 'God sent a son,'" he said.
