BREAKING: IRONY bites Rick Santorum HARD on the ASS as he FAILS to understand WHY his ASS hurts

This is from his campaign Website, and NO, I'm not giving him a link.

"It’s often said that the best way to determine future success is to look at your track record, and if that’s the case, then Rick Santorum is the conservative choice to take on and defeat the Clinton Machine.

Sign up now and join the fight."

His track record is that he chased the nomination the last time and LOST, so should that not be the best way to predict what's going to happen to him in 2016?

Former Eagles Member Randy Meisner Allegedly Threatened Murder-Suicide (with an AK-47 and pills)

Former Eagles Member Randy Meisner Allegedly Threatened Murder-Suicide


Former Eagles bassist Randy Meisner, who departed the group in 1977, has been placed under court-ordered 24-hour supervision after allegedly threatening murder-suicide with an AK-47 and pills last January. An L.A. County Superior Court judge appointed a conservator to administer the musician’s prescriptions and oversee his well-being on Wednesday until a follow-up hearing in September, according to New York Daily News.

The 68-year-old spoke in court only to give his age, the paper reports. His friend, James Newton, had filed the documents necessary for possible conservatorship in April. Newton’s lawyer, Troy Martin, claimed that Meisner had been diagnosed as bipolar and suffers from “suicidal ideations.”

Martin told the court that the bassist “threatened to gun everyone down with an AK-47” in medical records from an Encino, California hospital. The musician did not have a firearm with him when he made the threat, according to the paper. Meisner also allegedly threatened to take all of his prescriptions and kill himself on a separate occasion. The musician had been hospitalized several times, the lawyer said, for alcoholism and was also given a prescription to treat a “mood disorder.”

Meisner’s lawyer argued that the claims were “widely overblown.” Both lawyers agreed to try mediation before the follow-up hearing

"We can share what we've got of yours" UPDATE: Beers @ Dead "Fare The Well" shows $11.75 each

Grateful Dead's Goodbye, Night Two: Chemistry Lost, Cash-Grabs Abound
For the second of three Fare Thee Well shows, the band goes into latter year doldrums
By Will Hermes July 5, 2015


As happens during dull stretches, attention wandered. One might have thought about shows past. About what a shame it is to have to sit through songs as boring as "Liberty" "Lost Sailor" and "Saint of Circumstance" — even when lit up with nice spots of improvisation — during such a special night, or another pro-forma bar-band run-thru of Willie Dixon's "Little Red Rooster." Looking up to the sky above Soldier Field, one might have pondered the Direct TV blimp with the flashing side panel, which alternated quotes from Grateful Dead songs and animated dancing bears with ad pitches ("HIGHER SATISFACTION THAN CABLE" "THE MOST PGA COVERAGE" "STREAM ON ANY DEVICE". And it might have driven one back to the concession stands for another $11.75 beer.

Indeed, Fare Thee Well and the surrounding 50th anniversary hullaballoo has been a rock & roll cash grab to rival any that have come before, on every level. Scalpers, corporate and indie, went to town. Chicago hotels price-gouged mercilessly. There have been branded pay-per-view video streams and satellite radio simulcasts, and an 80-CD anniversary box set. Meanwhile, the haters have had their knives out. The Wall Street Journal followed the ticket market like an IPO while letting the editorial dogs bark ("They sounded like stoners," observed one critical sage of a golden-era Dead show that apparently left him with his dick in his hand). The clickbait has been ladled out like chum. And the faithful had every right to grouse.

For a fan on the ground in Chicago, the cash-grab vibe has felt sketchy at best, and the scale of the shows dispiriting. After all, the supersizing of the Dead experience was the beginning of the band's end. The residency shows Phil Lesh has been convening, with rotating casts, over the past couple of years at the small and beautiful Capitol Theater in Port Chester, New York — a favorite venue of the band in the early days — have been truer to the Platonic ideal of the Dead than any cattle call could ever be. (They will resume in October for a five weekend run.)

But the Dead have always been big on ritual events: New Years Eve shows, the closing of Winterland, the concerts at the Great Pyramid in Giza. And even with cable-pimping blimps and pricey swag, the vibe in Soldier Field has been magnificent to behold, conceptually magnified by fan-gatherings around the world, in theaters and bars and living rooms.

"I TOLD YOU he wanted meatballs."

Went to Subway. Ordered a footlong meatball sandwich. Girl asks me "what do you want on that?" I said "Provolone and some Parmesan, please."

Got it back home and there was nothing but bread, Provolone and Parmesan.

Her co-worker saw me coming with the sandwich in my hand and said to her "I TOLD YOU he wanted meatballs."

I said "WHY would I order a meatball sub and ask you to hold the meatballs?"

He made me a new sandwich and she just walked away without a word.

LAS VEGAS - Woman sets new world record for use of "muthafuckin" in a 2 minute time span

Walked from the motel to the restaurant behind me. Guy's walking with his wife / girlfriend / whatever 10 feet behind him, yelling like on those afternoon divorce court reality shows:

"What the muthafuckin fuck makes you fuckin think you can muthafucking fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck muthafucking fuck fuck fuck muthafucking fuck..."

And she's yelling every bit of it, and the more he keeps doing that slow walk and ignoring her, the louder she got.

In terms of clientele here, this has become the rule rather the exception over the last two years. I've stayed here maybe 8 times in that span. Think the divorce court / deadbeat dad shows and you get the picture.

Went around the corner to the restaurant. The entry to the front door was blocked by a scooter. Had to walk around to the opposite side. The owner was there with his wife / girlfriend / whatever. She had her arms around his neck and he had both hands on her ass and was using his tongue to give her a tonsillectomy. And they have the nerve to say love is dead.
