Soles'n'Bowls

  • The federal government, in typical eurocentric racist policy, have finally decided to recognize the Mashpee Wampanoags. Congratulations to a nation that had respect for the land, their elders, and the law about 1500 years before we officially poo-pooed all that.
  • UCFW (United Food and Commercial Workers) locals 1445 and 328 might vote on Sunday to strike local Stop & Shop stores since ownership won’t continue to pay 100% of employee’s insurance premiums. Stop& Shop has been holding “hiring fairs” to make certain they can continue to provide customer service to the locals who need to buy lawn furniture, TV/DVD player combos, and N.E. Patriots sweatshirts. Oh, yeah, and groceries.
  • “Money trumps peace,” saith the Yellow Admiral. Your legacy, Beachmates.
  • Really? You're Not Going To Sing For Us, Are You? Dep't.: Fall River Mayor Ed Lambert, about children: "They truly are the future, quite literally."
  • MA State Senator Scott “Separate But Equalish” Brown (R-Crybaby) read a kid’s website insults aloud (cusses and all) in a one-sided school class “discussion” of why he’s against civil rights. He called it “calling the kids out.” I call it inappropriate. So the kid apologized for the insult and then Brown offered the kid a job.That said…
  • “Al Gore is a big non-recyclable carbon-emitting pile of Styrofoam.”
  • Wait, I’m sorry. Now can I work the “Live Earth” concert and teach people about anthropogenic global climate change? And do I get dental?
  • The Weather Channel anchor told everyone how cold it was and urged everyone to “find someplace warm to stay in. Like the galleria or mall, and do some shopping.” This is the same Weather Channel that employs Heidi Cullen, who blogged, “If a meteorologist can't speak to the fundamental science of climate change, then maybe the AMS shouldn't give them a Seal of Approval.” I guess money trumps weather sometimes, too.
