    I've been bottling these things up inside. Got to air them out a little. These are things I hear with nauseating frequency on the airwaves, or they make no sense to me and just sound stupid. There is no particular order. I will not further explain nor apoligize for any. I'm just tired of hearing about it.

    1. "shark infested waters"
    2. "plastic gun"
    3. "turned the gun on himself"
    4. "first reports had indicated"
    5. "a crowd of worshippers"
    6. "preferred weapon of criminals"
    7. "recreational drugs"
    8. "medicinal marijuana"
    9. "global warming"
    10."male erectilie dysfunction"
    11."male enhancement"
    12."vagisil"
    13.Paris Hilton or Britney Spears (any of a dozen other media darlings)
    14.saying "basically" with every other sentence
    15."gas guzzling SUV"
    16. "caused by an SUV"
    17. "mean spirited"
    18. "illegal alien"
    19. "person of interest"
    20. "entered rehab"

    I feel better already.

  4. Hackneyed cliches everyone of them. It just goes to show the talking heads on TV contain no brains worthy of note. :D

    13.Paris Hilton or Britney Spears (any of a dozen other media darlings) - no comment
    14.saying "basically" with every other sentence is basically basic

    17. "mean spirited" - politically correct
    18. "illegal alien" - Resident of Californina
    19. "person of interest" - one suspected by aliens of being normal

    You forgot one, Sackett -- "senseless violence."
    Now, what would "sensible violence" consist of?

    "the gun went off". You see this in print when one knucklehead shoots his buddy by accident.

    They'd have us believe the gun was like a bomb, pre-programmed to "go off" with no human intervention.

    Just once I'd like to see the truth: "He pointed the gun at Bubba and pulled the trigger."
     
  9. Yesterday the newspaper reported an incident with an "undocumented immigrant" :mad:
