Funny, Conan, Funny/End Of The Western World Watch

The Pakistani president claimed bin Laden is hiding in Afghanistan; the Afghan president said he's in Pakistan; and President Bush said, 'I like sprinkles on my ice cream.'

BUSH'S BOOZE CRISIS (National Enquirer, 2005)

CHAVEZ CALLS BUSH DRUNK, "THE DEVIL". U.N. APPLAUDS

Venezuela official protesting treatment (9/26, Seattle P.I.)
Venezuela's foreign minister on Tuesday lodged a protest with the U.S. ambassador over his temporary detainment during the weekend at a New York airport.

A couple of reasons we can expect Chavez dead within the year...
(ripped from the San Fran Chronicle)

Chavez hosted Iran...signed more than 20 trade and investment deals

At this month's summit in Cuba of the 116-nation Non-Aligned Movement, Chavez emerged as heir apparent to the ailing Cuban President Fidel Castro...movement's members comprise two-thirds of the world's nations

Chavez has...huge oil revenues that will last for decades.

Chavez is pouring aid into Cuba and Bolivia, providing discounted oil to Caribbean and Central American nations, buying high-tech weapons from Russia and spreading Venezuelan wealth around western Africa.

Rescued Cuba's economy...In Argentina, he bought $3.1 billion in government bonds...allowing the government to pay off its debts to the International Monetary Fund and World Bank.

"I view him as a threat of undermining democracy," Bush said of Chavez in a Fox News interview July 31. "And I view him as a threat."

In August, the Bush administration created a position of intelligence chief for Venezuela and Cuba.

Government documents recently obtained by the Associated Press show that opposition groups have been receiving about $5 million a year through State Department channels. The administration has refused to disclose the names of about half of the groups, saying to do so would endanger their security.

Jeremy Bigwood, an analyst at the Center for Economic Policy Research, a liberal Washington think tank, last year sued the Agency for International Development, the State Department's foreign aid arm, arguing that all such recipients should be identified because the aid programs aren't part of covert intelligence work. A ruling is expected this year.

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors.

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
