This is wild! Bald? Nothing else works? Don’t want to wear a rug? Then, your only choice left to not look bald is to tattoo your baldness away! (oh, not for me ever!)
Hey we know, male-pattern baldness sucks. Thousands are effected by it every year and the common hair transplant can cost you up to 40 grand. The solution — hair tattoos. The idea is the brainchild of Ian Watson. When Watson was in his mid-twenties, he lost his brother and developed alopecia due to the resulting stress. Worried about his hair loss and desperate to do something about it, he asked his brother’s widow, Ranbir Rai-Watson to draw dots on his scalp using a fine pen. He hoped that the dots would produce the effect of a cropped haircut. When she was finished, the duo knew their ridiculous idea was actually worth something. The treatment is called the MHT (Micro Hair Technique) Scalp Pigmentation, and yes, I’m not making any of this up. As a part of the treatment, different shades of pigment are applied to the scalp so that the size, density and shape of short hairs are replicated. The price tag is a mere 3 grand.
It was announced during last night’s episode of Saturday Night Livethat troubled starlet Lindsay Lohan will be making her triumphant return to 30 Rock when she hosts SNL on March 3rd alongside musical guest Jack White.
Lohan last hosted SNL nearly six years ago — or 30 years ago in Lohan years.
The hosting gig is apparently part of a comeback push for the Playboy cover model slash ankle-monitor aficionado, who on Monday is set to become the youngest person ever to have prompted two E! True Hollywood Stories.
Even Hugh Hefner is reportedly contemplating a second Playboy photoshoot, so things are definitely looking up if you happen to be lying face-down with your eyes closed.
It is a time to coalesce the liberty movement into something distinct from Tea Parties. I will not disparage Tea Parties, they are what they are and they have put life to the Constitution, they have breathed life into a long dormant liberty movement. Many have been struggling for decades to be looked upon by our government as the rightful citizens we are, instead of children in need of guidance and scolding.
The liberty movement is distinct and separate from Tea Parties in a vital way: violence is not ruled out. This is not a promise of violence, or a threat, but those in the liberty movement are not put off by the thought of doing what our ancestors did and demand our rights by force of one sort or another. It is not a question of being afforded certain rights or liberties, it is a question of by which means they are achieved.

Newt Gingrich was on with Chris Wallace on FOX News Sunday this morning. After Wallace challenged him on his promise to get gas prices back down to $2.50 per gallon, Newt reminded him,
“You can guarantee under the Obama plan there’s going to be less American production and higher prices. We already have the highest price on average in history. This president is anti-American energy. He is consistently opposing it. You know, his US attorney in North Dakota filed a lawsuit over 8 migratory birds. That’s how much they’re opposed to the oil industry… It was a $1.89 when Obama was sworn in. $2.50 is not some inconceivable number except in the Washington establishment.”
It’s true. (Although the actual number is 28 not 8 which is still absurd.) In October 2011 the Obama administration prosecuted seven oil and gas companies for the deaths of 28 migratory birds. The companies were arraigned in federal court in Bismarck.
A Texas teacher is fighting to keep her job after she told a student “Go back to Mexico.”
Shirley Bunn, a math teacher at Barnett Junior High School in Arlington, Texas, acknowledged she lost her temper on Sept. 30 while handing forms out to students in her class, Dallas-Fort Worth’s Fox 4 reported.
According to public records, a disruptive student was repeatedly requesting a form printed in Spanish by saying, “I’m Mexican. I’m Mexican.” Bunn, a two-time “Teacher of the Year” with 24 years of teaching experience, attempted to tell the student he could get the form in the office but he continued to repeat, “I’m Mexican.”
“[Then] go back to Mexico,” Bunn shot back.

Read about the islamics who are trying to take over our country and the world.
I’ve not seen this anywhere else in the MSM run by the liberal asswhipes who suck Obama’s ass.
You should, too.
Former senatorial candidate Joe Miller broke this story at World Net Daily:
The Obama administration, despite the nation’s economic woes, effectively killed the job-producing Keystone Pipeline last month. The Arab Spring is turning the oil production of Libya and other Arab nations over to the Muslim Brotherhood. Iraq is distancing itself from the U.S. And everyone recognizes that Iran, whose crude supplies are critical to the European economy, will do anything it can to frustrate America’s strategic interests. In the face of all of this, Obama insists on cutting back U.S. oil potential with outrageous restrictions.
Part of Obama’s apparent war against U.S. energy independence includes a foreign-aid program that directly threatens my state’s sovereign territory. Obama’s State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians. Yes, to the Putin regime in the Kremlin.
The seven endangered islands in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea include one the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. The Russians are also to get the tens of thousands of square miles of oil-rich seabeds surrounding the islands. The Department of Interior estimates billions of barrels of oil are at stake.
The State Department has undertaken the giveaway in the guise of a maritime boundary agreement between Alaska and Siberia. Astoundingly, our federal government itself drew the line to put these seven Alaskan islands on the Russian side. But as an executive agreement, it could be reversed with the stroke of a pen by President Obama or Secretary Clinton.
The agreement was negotiated in total secrecy. The state of Alaska was not allowed to participate in the negotiations, nor was the public given any opportunity for comment. This is despite the fact the Alaska Legislature has passed resolutions of opposition – but the State Department doesn’t seem to care.
The imperiled Arctic Ocean islands include Wrangell, Bennett, Jeannette and Henrietta. Wrangell became American in 1881 with the landing of the U.S. Revenue Marine ship Thomas Corwin. The landing party included the famed naturalist John Muir. It is 3,000 square miles in size.
We are truly losing our way in this country when mothers can’t discipline their own children
The perfect snack any time of the day or night:
February 22 is the birthday of George Washington — the man who, more than any other, made possible our republican form of government.
The third Monday in February has come to be known, wrongly, as President’s Day. America’s political leaders should take this occasion to remember Washington’s deeds, recollect his advice, and again call the holiday celebrating him by its legal name: Washington’s Birthday.
Washington biographer James Flexner called him the “indispensable man” of the American Founding. Without Washington, America would never have won our War of Independence. He played the central role in the Constitutional Convention and set the precedents that define what it means to be a constitutional executive: strong and energetic, aware of the limits of authority but guarding the prerogatives of office.
Washington not only rejected offers to make him king, but was one of the first leaders in world history to relinquish power voluntarily. His peaceful transfer of the presidency to John Adams in 1797 inaugurated one of America’s greatest democratic traditions.
For eight years, Washington led his small army through the rigors of war, from the defeats in New York and the daring crossing of the Delaware River to the hardships of Valley Forge and the ultimate triumph at Yorktown. Through force of character and brilliant political leadership, Washington transformed an underfunded militia into a capable force that, although never able to take the British army head-on, outwitted and defeated the world’s mightiest military power. And when the job was done, Washington resigned his commission and returned to his beloved Mount Vernon.
Washington was instrumental in bringing about the Constitutional Convention, and his widely publicized participation gave the resulting document a credibility and legitimacy it would otherwise have lacked. Having been immediately and unanimously elected president of the convention, he worked actively throughout the proceedings. His voting record shows his consistent support for a strong executive and defined national powers. The vast powers of the presidency, as one delegate to the Constitutional Convention wrote, would not have been made as great “had not many of the members cast their eyes towards General Washington as president; and shaped their ideas of the powers to be given to a president, by their opinions of his virtue.”
Washington wrote extensively and eloquently about the principles and purposes of the American Founding. He was a champion of religious freedom, of immigration, and of the rule of law. His most significant legacy is his Farewell Address of 1796, which ranks with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution as one of the greatest documents of the Founding. The Farewell Address is best remembered for its counsel about international affairs: Washington recommended commercial relations with other nations but as few political entanglements as possible.
Often overlooked is his sage advice about the character of our political system:

The Chicago Teachers Union is asking for raises amounting to 30 percent over the next two years, the opening salvo in heated contract negotiations with school officials who are implementing a longer school day across Chicago Public Schools next school year.
Documents obtained by the Tribune show that in the face of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s expansion of the school day, the union has led with an offer seeking a 24 percent raise in the 2012-13 school year and a 5 percent increase the following year, the net effect being 30 percent.
Barbara Radner, director of DePaul University’s Center for Urban Education, described the proposal as “unprecedented” and “really bold” but predicted it wouldn’t go over well among the general public.
“Union members will say: ‘Yeah. Stand up for us,’” she said. “But in terms of public relations, everyone else will say, ‘Is that a typo?”

On “Inside Washington” Saturday, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer offered a contrarian view on the bipartisan agreement expected to allow for the extension of payroll tax cuts. An agreement many are hailing as the way Washington ought to work all the time. That agreement would extend the payroll tax holiday through the end of the year, but cost the federal government an estimated $100 billion. According to Krauthammer, there is no economic benefit in doing that.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said on Sunday that he supports talks between the U.S. and the Taliban, a position that may be out of step with Mitt Romney, whom he endorsed in the presidential contest, according to ABC.
“I think it’s important to have talks wherever you can,” said McCain, who was speaking from Afghanistan, in an interview with ABC’s This Week. “We have to have an outcome on the battlefield…that would motivate a successful conclusion.”
Romney said in a recent presidential debate that the “right course” was not to negotiate with the Taliban, ABC reported. McCain said he has not discussed the issue with Romney.
He went on to say that tenor if this year’s presidential race may be hurting Republicans and helping President Obama, ABC reported.
Yes, this is NSFW. Castigate me if you will. Or commend me!
But just once, to get wine served this way?
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. claims Jim Crow is returning. In a recent speech, Mr. Holder said that attempts by states to pass voter identification laws will disenfranchise minorities, rolling back the clock to the evil days of segregation. He said that a growing number of minorities fear that “the same disparities, divisions and problems” now afflict America as they did in 1965 prior to the Voting Rights Act. According to the Obama administration, our democracy is being threatened by racist Republicans. Hence, the Justice Department must prevent laws requiring a photo ID to vote from being enacted.
Mr. Holder argues that voter ID laws disproportionately discriminate against poor blacks and Hispanics — citizens who cannot afford to acquire a driver’s license, passport or other form of photo identification. The latest victim is South Carolina; its voter ID law has been blocked by the Justice Department. Liberal Democrats — taking their cue from the White House — are portraying the national movement for election reform as an authoritarian assault upon civil liberties. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People has even petitioned the United Nations, asking it to declare states’ voter ID laws human rights abuses. For the radical left, America has become Vladimir Putin’s Russia.
This would be comical if the consequences were not so serious. South Carolina’s legislation provides for free ID cards to be given to anyone who needs it. Not one person — white, black or brown — is discriminated against or discouraged from casting a vote at the ballot box. Moreover, the Supreme Court already has ruled on the issue — upholding state voter ID laws. In the 2008 Crawford v. Marion County Election Board decision, the high court held that an Indiana law mandating photo identification at the voting booth was indeed constitutional. If it is good enough for the Supreme Court and the overwhelming majority of the states, then it should be for Mr. Holder as well.
It isn’t. And the reason is simple: The administration is trying to whip up minority frenzy, propagating the myth of widespread ballot suppression. The goal is to foster a sense of racial persecution of blacks, intending to maximize voter turnout in November. The results, however, will be to poison race relations further. Mr. Holder is cynically playing the race card in order to achieve President Obama’s overriding ambition: re-election.
Racism has nothing to do with states implementing voter ID laws. Rather, it is about protecting the integrity of our electoral system. . . .
McCarthy: Obama Recruits Qaradawi Can our president get any lower? This is a guy who issued a fatwa to kill our troops in Iraq!!!!!
Oh, this would be so damn neat! If only they were closer to me, like here in Iowa.
We have spent a lifetime total of approximately three million hours playing video games where we destroy things and basically run around being insane. It’s a kind of therapy that lets us take out our frustrations on digital victims. But at some point, destroying pretend stuff ceases to be quite as satisfying. The people behind Drive a Tank get that – and they might just be our soul mates.
Drive a Tank is a service in Minnesota that lets you satisfy your innermost desires to drive around a wicked armored vehicle. For $499, you can drive two tanks around a wooded course and test fire some historic weapons. But for just $499 more you can use that mean machine for what it’s really meant for: crushing the life out of a poor, defenseless car. Add another $200 and you can crush a second car.
Dear Mr. President:
Although it is two hundred years, and more, since I laid down the cares of an eventful temporal existence and took up residence in my long home, Our Gracious Lord has seen fit to bestow upon my spirit the gift of perpetual cognition, and He has granted the further boon of permitting me, for a few moments, to assume sufficient corporeality to pen this letter, which I place before Your Excellency as the cri de coeur of a patriot whose efforts on behalf of his country have been deemed by its citizens to possess no little significance.
I have watched, frequently with pride and joy, occasionally with grave misgivings and sadness, the arc of our country’s history over two centuries, since those of my generation first established that Orchard of Liberty on the North American continent that would become the envy of the world. Over many seasons that Orchard has borne good fruit, and has flourished in the golden light of our Sacred Constitution. In evil times, this Arboreal Garden has been watered with the blood of heroes, which sustenance has served to make it even hardier and more prolific.
Imagine my consternation then, Sir, when I look upon our Orchard today, and see the fruit withering on the branch, the crowns blighted, and the whole cloaked in the gauzy shrouds of assiduously destructive bagworms. How slothful and inattentive have become the arborists who constitute what my friend Thomas Jefferson referred to as our natural aristoi! What bovine complacency has afflicted a once alert and industrious citizenry! And – Your Excellency will pardon the boldness of one who was present at the creation – what pernicious and invidious husbandry doth your own administration display!
Under the sanction of what right, divine or human, do you and those of your faction undertake to transform a free people into a herd of lowing cattle? By what law, constitutional or legislative, do you and your like-minded philosophes propose to turn a great nation into a vast ward for the feeble-witted, or a prison for three hundred millions of debtors? You join with hordes of warlike Musselmen to beset our Hebrew brethren with chimerical demands, your Department of Justice – Justice, sirrah! – has taken pride of place amongst the criminal caste, and everywhere your rapacious clerks and petit judges harass honest citizens with encroachments on their liberties from which even His Late Majesty, George the Third, would have recoiled in disgust.
Our Garden is become a tangled bed of weeds and thorns as those of your school have beggared the working man, and stood as highwayman to the banker and merchant. Our system of public education is like unto an academy for the teaching of treason, and a university for the manufacture of a large class of impertinent mendicants for whom the taxpayers must serve as unwilling almoners in perpetuity. And you strive, through cunning and secret stratagems, to disarm the people, thereby subjecting them to the caprice of an all-powerful central government, in one stroke imposing tyranny and depriving the citizenry of the capacity for resisting it.
In spite of this accumulation of political felonies, you have had the temerity, the astonishing rind, to posit an intellectual and spiritual kinship with several of your distinguished predecessors. I note, with considerable relief, that you have not as yet presumed to impute to me the same act of bastardy with which you have sought to malign the honor of these illustrious gentlemen. I caution you never to do so, for, in the event, I would bargain with Almighty God that I should pass an hundred years in purgatory in exchange for the grace of an hour in which to call upon you, to offer the choice of sword or pistol.
Your most obedient servant,
Reason number 199 why Ron Paul is freaking senile and should not be running for any elected office:
Not only did Paul say that he would not respond militarily to Iran closing the Strait of Hormuz, he even went so far as to add that Iran would be justifiedin cutting off the strategic waterway in response to sanctions.
