Broken Breaking News

I was online today to witness some news stories posted over at CNN that got me wondering...

First, about an hour and twenty minutes ago now...

@ ~ U.S. scraps missile defense shield plans is posted and discusses the Obama Administration scrapping Bush-Era middle defense plans. Reading that article, at least one Twitterer posted immediately that the world is a less safe place ... which seems likely if that article was the whole story.

But, wait, moments go by and there is yet more breaking news...

@ ~ Obama scraps Bush-era missile defense for new plan is posted within the hour in a different department and includes the proverbial "rest of the story". The Obama Administration isn't just scrapping Bush plans, they are formulating their own new and improved and better missile defense shield.

It seems that the breaking news this morning at CNN more than likely wasn't new information, but it sure seems more likely that a staff member noticed that another staff member left out one itty, bitty fact like there still is a plan for a missile defense system in the works.

Cash For Flunkers

Here's is some cute political humor poking fun at the Cash for Clunkers program along with Obama's suggestions for kids to study hard.

I'm really appreciative of The Jay Leno Show's site. I'm not really good at wanting to watch TV, but I love watching Jay Leno's monologues.

What's Your Excuse: Chinchilli Day

Goofy TV commercial where a man creates a fake holiday, Chinchilli Day, that celebrates the day that chincilla revolted and his people fought for freedom. Really, he just wants an excuse to stay an extra day in Vegas. Kind of silly.

At least it is better than the notion of what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. I swear that the incident of people being pulled over and police dogs called in looking for drugs doubled after that commerical aired.

Of course, it could be the economy. The police are more likely to pull people over when they want revenue, and it is pretty hard to get a speeding ticket in Northern Nevada if you are sober. For instance, outside Reno on the Utah side, the first really busy "speed trap" where they mostly get Utah drivers is on a straight stretch that is a mile and a half long. You have to be drunk or on your cell phone to miss the police cars sitting in the distance. Every other day I see them arresting someone at that pull off.

Fines proposed for going without health insurance

Obamacare, in the news...

Fines proposed for going without health insurance: "Americans would be fined up to $3,800 for failing to buy health insurance under a plan that circulated in Congress on Tuesday as divisions among Democrats undercut President Barack Obama's effort to regain traction on his health care overhaul."

Seeing as how a big part of the reason that people go without health care insurance is that they can't afford the cost ... fining them when they can't afford the cost will only make things more difficult.

When would the fines start? Right after you stopped paying? Would you have a grace period if the reason you stop paying is because you're ill, or pregnant, or nursing a sick relative and can't work?
