Righties readin’ for the next generation… The name of their new magazine just about tells it all: The Conservative Teen. An amazing amalgam of grownups, who all happen to be involved with either The Heritage Foundation, Fox Business News, the Family Research Council or the Media Research Center have joined forces to produce this slick tribute to deadtree journalism, jam packed with articles they know the kiddies are dyin’ to read, like:
**How the TV Show Glee is Bad for You
**How Teens Don’t Know Anything About U.S. history
**Why Abstinence Works And How It Can Work For You
This last article informs us that “The vast majority of people will have sex at some time during their lives.” Which probably makes the hosting domain, “LongBoys.net” very happy.
Here comes the Tacocopter: Those clever folks up in the Silicon Valley are so busy inventing stuff and playing with their iPads that they don’t really have time to eat. Now, once they figure a way to get the pesky government out of the way, they’ve come up with a surefire solution: The Unmanned TacoCopter Drone. The concept is simple: place your order via your iPad and pay via credit card. A few minutes later, your order and location are transmitted to an unmanned drone helicopter (grounded, near the kitchen where the tacos are made), and then the tacocopter is sent out to deliver your tacos to wherever you’re standing. Sadly, the FAA hasn’t gotten around to creating regulations that will permit commercial uses for drones.
So much better than air dried food… While you’re waiting for the Tacocopter to get off the ground, you can order in the latest great thing in shelf stable cuisine: Candwich-brand sandwiches. Available in 24 pack cases, these bad boys come in delicious flavors like PBJ Grape, PBJ Strawberry and BBQ Chicken. The website reminds us that this product is particularly useful for “Disaster preparedness”.
While you’re waiting for the apocalypse… You should know that the National Organization for Marriage’s boycott of Starbucks for the company’s support of the freedom to marry has turned out to be a dismal failure. Their on-line Dump Starbucks petition has garnered a mere 8000 or so signatures, while SumOfUs’s retaliatory “Thank You, Starbucks” card has over a quarter million supporters. Starbucks executives are reportedly working up a “Thank You” card of their own, since this is the best publicity the coffee chain has seen in years.
Weed workers united… Workers at fourteen of Los Angeles’ remaining pot shops have banded together and formed the “medical cannabis and hemp division” of Los Angeles chapter of the United Food and Commercial Workers union (UFCW). “It’s a natural fit,” the national UFCW explained on its blog Friday. “[These] workers will join Local 770 members who work in other retail settings, including grocery stores and pharmacies.” So now the LA City Council will be facing off against one of the cities toughest unions as it tries to shutter the remaining pot dispensaries.
Mitt’s house plans revealed, sort of… DC based Politico has taken a gander at Gov. Mitt Romney’s construction plans for his La Jolla home. After promising the secret service they wouldn’t tell all, they did share some details; the most interesting parts are probably the separate elevator for autos and the 3600 square foot basement, a room with more floor space than the existing home’s entire living quarters.
