The Times Observer Has Moved . . .
The Times Observer has moved to a new address, with a new look. It is no longer hosted by Blogger, but find out the reasons why.
The new address is at:
This is getting some play in the media and I think the Associated Press quote down below gives it best in a nutshell:
“A Chinese astronaut on Saturday performed the nation’s first-ever spacewalk, the latest milestone in an ambitious program that is increasingly rivaling the
After all, both
Do you know what burns my bacon? I’ve seen Christmas advertisements already and it’s not even September.
Really, are stores that desperate for the all mighty dollar that they keep pushing back the Christmas Season? Whoever the marketing “genius” is who thought this up needs to have a Nutcracker in his Christmas balls.
Advertising for Christmas when it’s still summer time makes about as much sense to me as shaving Santa Claus’ beard off and putting him on Weight Watchers and changing his name to Don Knotts!To continue, please click here.
I can’t believe this actually happened. A 20-year-old
You know, this reminds me of the time that I visited my old high school, while new additions were being built onto it. I was given an impromptu tour by an old teacher and he showed me and my best friend, who was with me, one of the new classrooms.
The classroom had such a hideous color painted on its walls that my mind has prevented me from truly recall what the color was. I think it might have been a combination of black, purple and charcoal black, if it’s possible.

This burns my bacon and it has nothing to do with someone driving a huge SUV.
At the end of June, it was reported that scientists believe that the ice caps on the North Pole will melt away by this September, according to National Snow and
But this week The Times of India ran a story about a professor from the

Body Language Experts Should
Zip Their Lips On Candidates
Do you know what burns my bacon? People who put too much attention to insignificant things like a presidential candidate’s body impression.
Body language experts believe that presumed presidential nominees Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama are strong characters because of how they carry themselves.
For example, because McCain “stands firmly and holds onto the sides of a podium,” he represents stability, according to these experts, while Obama’s casual walk shows that he’s a strong leader.
But for all we know, McCain is hanging on to that podium for dear life because we all know that old people break their hips as often as they take bathroom trips during the middle of the night.
And Obama’s easy stroll? Of course he walks that way. A fast moving politician makes people nervous!
Women Having Sex With Teens? No Big Deal!
Do you know what burns my bacon?
Angela Honeycutt, which sounds like a bad Bond girl’s name, is charged for allegedly exposing herself to teen-aged boys at a sleepover and having sexual contact with them.
So, yes, we can all see how this would scar a young, strapping male teen with raging hormones.
Now, let’s say Ms. Honeycutt allegedly did what police are charging her with. I can tell you now the police didn’t find out about her little Show-And-Do because Little Johnny woke up screaming in a cold sweat from a nightmare over the incident.
Just like many teen-aged boys, Little Johnny, or in this cases Johnnies, bragged about having some type of sex with a 38-year-old woman from Lower Makefield,
No Mercy For Killers
Do you know what burns my bacon? Death row inmates who complain that the method of their execution is cruel and unusual.
Take Richard Cooey for example. Old Richie was sentenced to death for raping and murdering two women in 1986. He’s supposed to get a lethal injection, without the lollypop, on Oct. 14.
However, Cooey is 267 pounds soaking wet in meat gravy and he claims that the lethal injection process would make it hard to find his veins because of his fatness. He also claims that he’s taking a drug for migraine headaches and that could affect the lethal injection process.
Let that sink in for a second. He’s worried that his headache medication would affect the lethal injection. I figure the lethal injection would be more effective in ridding his migraine headaches than his medication.To continue, please click here.
M Headline Misleading?
Do you know what burns my bacon? Media sensationalism just to sell a few newspapers and extreme Christian groups that try to suck the fun out of life; so yeah, there’s a double-bonus of bacon burning in this edition’s column.
First, the headline from the
Granted, Black Canary does dress in leather and fishnet stockings, so it’s really not a real S&M look she has, but more of a biker-stripper look going on. This may not ease a lot of parents, but considering that Wonder Woman has been parading around in her star-spangled panties for more than 65 years, Black Canary’s outfit is an improvement and covers more.To continue, please click here.
Voting Goes To The Dogs
Do you know what burns my bacon? Idiot voters who only support a candidate for stupid reasons.
For example, an AP-Yahoo! News poll found that pet owners support presumed Republican Presidential candidate John McCain because he has two dogs, a cat, two turtles, a ferret, three parakeets and a lot of fish. I believe this is known as the Noah Complex.
But on the other side, the poll said that non-pet owners, or also known as “liberators” according to PETA, favor the assumed Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama because of his lack of fuzzy beasts.
What really burns my bacon is what Janet Taylor of
“I think a person who owns a pet is a more compassionate person ― caring, giving, trustworthy. I like pet owners,” she stated.
Who can make that giant leap of illogic? McCain has seven children. In my book, having children trumps having pets. You would think that caring for small human beings would make you more trustworthy and compassionate.
Muslims Outraged Over Puppy?
Do you know what really burns my bacon? Diversity.
Let me clarify that. I hate how we’re told we’re supposed to be accepting to other people’s cultures, but these same cultural people don’t do the same.

Local Muslims were upset because they consider a dog unclean.
