This actually exists! Have you not ever dreamed of going down the alley and knocking the pins down yourself? Now you can. Though it is marketed to 5 to 12 year old bowlers.
This is the inflatable bowling game that challenges players to assume the “roll” of the ball in knocking down a set of pins. For ages 5-12, the transparent PVC ball is inflated to its full 7′ diameter by an adult with the included blower–a zipper cinches the ball closed yet opens quickly to allow egress and quick entry for another player. A player simply runs forward inside the ball, generating momentum to knock over six 5′-tall foam pins that yield easily at the point of collision. An included stationary air blower keeps the 3′-high lane boundary constantly inflated to an optimal firmness to keep careening bowlers within the lane’s confines. Four stakes firmly secure the lane to the ground. Its rip- and tear-resistant vinyl construction withstands years of play, and resists mold and fading. Inflated: 40′ L x 17′ W x 3″ H. (280 lbs.)

There will never be peace between Jews and Muslims.
Today NRA Vice President Wayne LaPierre addressed the United Nations as the debate about the Arms Trade Treaty, or the “Small Arms Treaty,” continues in New York City. The treaty is written to make it seem as though only arms transferred by governments will be affected but the details of the language seem to show the treaty applies to civilian firearms. The treaty has been classified as an international effort to attack the Second Amendment in the United States Constitution.
It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.

Really, at some point our government, our people, the military, are just going to have to get out of the war business! Protect our shores, our borders, but let other countries fight it out amongst themselves!
See, this is being just a bit smart here. Why get involved with a country not doing a damn thing to hurt us?
MIAMI — Oscar Haza, a well known Miami Spanish-language broadcast journalist and anchor, scored an interview this week in Washington with President Barack Obama in which Obama said Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez has not posed a “serious” national security threat to the United States.
The full interview aired Tuesday night on A Mano Limpia, Haza’s nightly show on WJAN-Channel 41, better known as América TeVe. The show had shown portions of the interview Monday night, with Haza live in D.C., and teased to the president talking about Cuba and Venezuela.
The Dominican-born Haza, who also hosts a daily morning radio show that recently moved to Univisión’s WAQI-AM (710), better known as Radio Mambí, said he was one of eight journalists from eight swing states invited to the White House — the only one from Florida — to speak to the president and other administration officials as Obama pushed his plan to keep some Bush-era tax cuts but eliminate them for incomes greather than $250,000 a year. [...]
Then, Haza asked about the alliance between Venezuelan PresidentHugo Chávez and Iran.
“We’re always concerned about Iran engaging in destabilizing activity around the globe. But overall my sense is that what Mr. Chávez has done over the last several years has not had a serious national security impact on us,” Obama said. “We have to vigilant. My main concern when it comes to Venezuela is having the Venezuelan people have a voice in their affairs, and that you end up ultimately having fair and free elections, which we don’t always see.”
Interesting and true.
8 of the Most Unusual Tunnels in the World…
The tunnels are mostly human creations that commonly pass through the mountains and hills. But there are tunnels that have a very unusual purpose, appearance or location. This is a list of tunnels that you can not see often, because they are rare or unique. That is why, some of them have become very popular tourist attractions.
One of the most curious building in Japan is the Gate Tower Building in Osaka, Japan. This building is the result of an unusual compromise between the land owner and the Japanese government. The 5th, 6th and 7th floors of this 16-story office building is occupied by an express highway – passing right through the building. On the building’s floor information board on the ground floor, the tenants for the three floors are listed as the Hanshin Expressway.
Wonder how many more cities in California, and other states, will seek bankruptcy protection this year?
San Bernardino becomes 3rd Calif. city in 2 weeks to file for bankruptcy protection
By NBC Los Angeles
San Bernardino became the third California city in less than two weeks to file municipal bankruptcy protection Tuesday night when the city council voted to make the move in the face of a $45-million budget shortfall.
Shortly before the council’s vote, Interim Mayor Andrea Miller recommended the city of 209,000 seek bankruptcy protection due, in part, to its inability to make payroll over the next three months, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The wussification of our olympic teams! Unfreaking real. Guess cowboy hats are out? Would love to see some Americans show some balls and were anything but berets!
(NYP) — Our Olympic heroes will be headed off to London this month — looking as if they’re decked out for a Hamptons lawn party.
Ralph Lauren yesterday unveiled the preppy parade uniforms that Team USA members will wear at the July 27 opening ceremony, stirring an uproar over pricey duds fit for a regatta.
The outfits include blue blazers, cream-colored trousers, white skirts — and berets.
“2012 US Olympic team is wearing berets. Really? America?” tweeted John Lee Rudnicki, a Los Angeles entertainment lawyer. “How many people in the US have you ever seen wear a beret? Five?”
“What the France?” tweeted Greg “Hollea” Rachal, a political activist and former Jacksonville, Fla., City Council candidate.
The company said the outfits embody “the spirit of American athleticism and sportsmanship.”
Something I have never done when I have an ice cream cone, nor my wife and anyone else I know.
(NYM) — The president made a pit stop at Deb’s Ice Cream and Deli in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, on Tuesday, where he ordered a scoop of mint-chocolate-chip ice cream in a waffle cone, reports the Sioux City Journal. But what’s the deal here? If he wanted to eat with a spoon, he should have ordered ice cream in a cup. A Buzzfeed collection of images of Obama chomping on ice cream tells us that he doesn’t have sensitive teeth, which might have prompted him to use a spoon.
Republicans, eager to put Senate Democrats on record on taxes, tried to force a vote Wednesday on President Obama’s proposal to extend middle-class tax cuts but raise taxes for the rich, but Majority Leader Harry Reid objected, essentially sidelining the president’s plan.
Sen. Mitch McConnell, Republicans’ leader, tried to set up competing votes — one on the GOP’s plan to extend all the tax cuts for one year, and another on Mr. Obama’s proposal to extend them only for households making $250,000 or less.
But Mr. Reid objected to the request, saying he didn’t want to have the vote on the GOP’s legislation.
“It’s the help Paris Hilton legislation,” he said. “It would give people like her a tax break for doing nothing — $46 billion of the American people’s money to help Paris Hilton and others.”
Mr. McConnell said he was just trying to get senators on record so voters could see which senators supported the president and which supported the broader tax cut.
Hypocrisy, a word pelosi and liberals should learn!
On the heels of The Weekly Standard’s report yesterday that DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz — a vocal critic of Mitt Romney‘s investing practices, had herself dabbled in the foreign markets — we can add Nancy Pelosi to the list of prominent Democrats to profit from overseas investments.
According to Pelosi’s 2011 financial disclosure statement, the Democratic House Minority Leader received between $1 million and $5 million in partnership income from ”Matthews International Capital Management LLC,” a group that emphasizes that it has a “A Singular Focus on Investing in Asia.” A quick trip to the company website reveals a featured post extolling the virtues of outsourcing.
“Designed in California, Made in Manila” sounds like an excellent title for a smear ad to be run the by the Barack Obama campaign. Instead, it appears to be Nancy Pelosi’s investment strategy.
This man speaks volumes of truth!
In a recent sit-down with The Atlas Society, Rep. Allen West warned that America could become “a socialist egalitarian nanny state” and that liberals view the government’s safety net as a hammock.
He also said the novel after which the D.C.-based organization is named — Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” — belongs behind just one other book.
“I think that ‘Atlas Shrugged’ is the most widely read book second only to the Bible, which is a good thing,” West said in an interview posted yesterday to The Atlas Society’s website. [...]
“Conservatives believe that ever person who comes to America or is born here, they have a ladder that they are given as their birthright or becoming a citizen,” he said. “Sometimes you fall off of that ladder, but we believe that there is a safety net that is there, and that safety net is to catch you and get you to bounce back up and continue to climb on the ladder. That’s what conservatives believe.
“But liberals tend to believe that the safety net is a hammock, so you can stay there the rest of your life.”
