Alright. Let’s take a look at some of today’s Drudge headlines that I find most interesting … what’s good for Mark Davis (substitute Rush host, not the former Padres closer) is good for me:
CNBC Host Says Obama Sullied Office With 'Ass to Kick' Line...: Becky Quick is a straight-laced morning CNBC anchor. She has never indicated any political persuasion when I've watched the show she's on, Morning Squawk Box. As for Obama using the "A" word on the Today Show -- I'd agree that it's shocking for a U.S. President, except for the fact that morning shows run all kinds of material that's inappropriate for children. Unfortunately, the "A" word is par for the course.
UPDATE: Van der Sloot confesses to murder of Lima woman...: Alan Dershowitz was right that most criminals prosecuted for murder are, in fact, guilty. The justice system in Aruba looks incredibly LaME right now -- reminds me of a 1980's Daredevil or Batman comic where there is no justice in the courtrooms.
Search giant denies use of private data for mapping...:
This story does not explain why(tm) Google would be collecting data about unsecured wi-fi networks. I mean, did the driver have their android device searching for open wi-fi networks as they drove because they couldn't tether their 3G device? Were they secretly compiling a list of unsecure wi-fi networks? Were they going to drive by later and, what. Hack people's networks? Check out their emails? Try to install some keystroke recorder to get passwords to banks? Was this driver doing this for himself or herself, or on behalf of Google? Has the Connecticut Attorney General just run out of legitimate criminals to convict, and need a big splash court case? Can someone give me some details here in the comments section?
PLUMES OF OIL BELOW SURFACE RAISE NEW CONCERNS...: I guess bacteria is eating some oil, but that's eliminating life-giving oxygen from the water. It's not dangerous yet, although at this point I have a hard time believing conservative estimates about the oil spill anymore. I guess Obama, on the Today Show, also said he would have fired BP CEO Tony Hayward if he was in charge. Okay....
Second leaking rig near Deepwater Horizon...: Truly, if skytruth.org had not discovered this second leak in the satellite photos they analyzed, I doubt anyone would know about this. A couple of private companies you've never heard of own this second rig site that is leaking oil. This other leak started April 30th, apparently (again, who knows what to believe anymore -- the MSM could be proclaiming that the "MMU is invading the Nigerian compound" again), and is not as bad as the BP oil spill, but it's not good, either.
It appears a huge oil leak scandal is being revealed to the public in fits and starts. Between the stories of tons of oil being spilt in the Niger Delta, with people swimming in the oil (a story I heard on C-Span and Rush), and these Gulf oil spills, along with the fact that transport boats leak the oil they're carrying all the time ... the oil industry is DONE for this generational cycle. It'll take a few years before people forget. Of course, since oil is so ingrained in society (I heard a commentator on C-Span say we are the "People of oil"), I doubt people will count the cost before pushing for regulation that will change everything. Should be interesting. I do like the idea of eliminating caps on lawsuits against companies like BP -- that would be a nice short-term solution.
There were more headlines that I was interested, but I’m tired. Pleasant dreams.
