Overnight Open Thread-TGIF Edition [CDR M]

Thank God it's Friday!!

Well, well. Ray Nagin is in the news again. It would seem he and about 60 other of his friends took offense of man who put up a sign of Obama In Diapers in front of his house.

A group of about 60 people protested outside a New Orleans home where a man mounted a sign depicting President Barack Obama in a diaper.

The protesters, who included former New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin, gathered outside Timmy Riley's Calhoun Street home Wednesday to demand the removal of the sign, which they said is disrespectful to Obama and African-Americans in general, WDSU-TV, New Orleans, reported Thursday.


Um, how is it disrespectful to African-Americans? Maybe to Obama himself but not ALL African-Americans. If a black man held a sign up making fun of Bush, was that making fun of all white people? Give me a friggin' break.
"We see it every day. It's a monstrosity, and I can't believe somebody would put it up. But (Riley has) the right to do that, unfortunately," neighbor Veronica Lyons said.

Yeah. Unfortunate that a fellow American has the right to free speech.


Honey Badger

You guys ready for some honey badger? No? Well honey badger doesn't give a f$#*.


A Question

So, um, 'ettes. After reading this article on Women Saving Money For Purses, just how much do you have stashed away for this type of stuff? Or is that Top Secret?

A British building society said its research of 1,000 women found one in 10 have an average $135 hidden away in "handbag funds.

The society said some women also hide funds for shoes, vacations and plastic surgery, while one in five men have money saved for gadgets, games and clothes.


I call BS on the guy stuff. Beer isn't on the list.

Well, one Marine pushes that idea. I don't think it'll have a chance but it is an interesting one nonetheless.


Some Music Perhaps?

Pretty good mix of classic songs that have no lyrics.


Where Some Foreign Aid Ends Up

I'm not surprised that millions of dollars ended up in the pockets of the son of an African Head of State to further his playboy lifestyle.

Eleven supercars worth up to £5 million have been seized from outside an African dictator’s Paris mansion as part of a foreign aid money-laundering investigation.

The vehicles, which included two Bugatti Veyrons, a Ferrari 599 GTO and a Maserati MC12 are all registered to Teodoro Obiang Nguema, the president of Equatorial Guinea.

He is one of numerous African heads of state who regularly receive vast handouts in foreign aid – including British cash via European funding.
