The Cool Report: Passenger Lands Plane After Pilot Dies

What's not cool about this long clip is that the pilot died. But this is edge-of-your-seat audio. If you have 38 minutes to spare, check it out..

Ted Kennedy's Senate Seat And Air America: Epic Train Wreck Week


Liberals and radio. It's like nails on a chalk board. By it's nature liberalism is the barer of bad news, so it shouldn't be surprising that they have yet to sustain any long term presence on the radio. With Air America, according to them, they were going to take down the Limbaugh machine.. and they didn't make it even a few months before they were on life support. And this week they pulled the plug mercifully. I can't even imagine how many investors lost money in that failing venture.
Here's the deal. Liberals owned every solitary news outlet. They got their message out without interruption under the guise of "real news". Yet conservatives were trampling them with the old medium of radio. More people were listening to Limbaugh and Hannity on the radio then all the cable news networks combined. So they came up with Air America to try to take down the radio side and create a monopoly on all news and information. Well epic fail.
They also during the last ten years have lost the cable news race. Thank God for Fox News. ALso during this last week they lost another means they were planning to silence Rush, and Sean, and Glen Beck. The McCain Feingold Bill was ruled unconstitutional. This was the bill that was going to allow the government to silence conservatism 90 days before a general election while they touted their own dangerous ideas freely.

Air America gone, Ted Kennedy's former seat gone, McCain-Feingold shut down.. It's been a great week to be a Republican!

The Cool Report: No Contact Thermometer


When I was little taking my temperature involved my mom vigerously shaking the glass thermometer until the mercury leveled out and then I had to hold it in my mouth for 3 minutes. Well those days are over... Introducing from a site called KidzMed a thermometer that allows you to get a pinpoint accurate temperature reading without ever touching their skin. You can even use it while they sleep. It's better then the ear or forehead scanners that are so popular now. In fact you can even use it to check the temperature of food and bottles. So I recommend you mother's order one today. I would have loved it if my parents could have just scanned my head. Hopefully the reading wouldn't just say "empty".

The Cool Report: Metallica -- One

Here it is. One of the coolest songs of all time. My theory is that when they get to the part that rocks out even Billy Graham and Mother Theresa stopped to listen. Enjoy..

Are Democrats A Cult?

As my man Mark Levin would say.. That's right I said it!

We learned this week that if you are white but play for the right team you can pretty much use the "N" word and get a pass from the black community and the rest of the democrats. Which got me thinking that maybe democrats are a cult.. Hmm. Well let's examine the Cult checklist put togther by Janja Lalich, Ph.D. & Michael D. Langone, Ph.D. and found at CSJ.org

How many of these can we check off for the democrats? Can you think of the blaring examples of how democrats fit these characteristics? Please feel free to post these on your blog and check them off with me...

The group displays excessively zealous and unquestioning commitment to its leader and (whether he is alive or dead) regards his belief system, ideology, and practices as the Truth, as law.

Questioning, doubt, and dissent are discouraged or even punished.

Mind-altering practices(such as meditation, chanting, speaking in tongues, denunciation sessions, and debilitating work routines) are used in excess and serve to suppress doubts about the group and its leader(s).

The leadership dictates, sometimes in great detail, how members should think, act, and feel (for example, members must get permission to date, change jobs, marry—or leaders prescribe what types of clothes to wear, where to live, whether or not to have children, how to discipline children, and so forth).

The group is elitist, claiming a special, exalted status for itself, its leader(s) and members (for example, the leader is considered the Messiah, a special being, an avatar—or the group and/or the leader is on a special mission to save humanity).

The group has a polarized us-versus-them mentality, which may cause conflict with the wider society.

The leader is not accountable to any authorities (unlike, for example, teachers, military commanders or ministers, priests, monks, and rabbis of mainstream religious denominations).

The group teaches or implies that its supposedly exalted ends justify whatever means it deems necessary. This may result in members' participating in behaviors or activities they would have considered reprehensible or unethical before joining the group (for example, lying to family or friends, or collecting money for bogus charities).

The leadership induces feelings of shame and/or guilt iin order to influence and/or control members. Often, this is done through peer pressure and subtle forms of persuasion.

Subservience to the leader or group requires members to cut ties with family and friends, and radically alter the personal goals and activities they had before joining the group.

The group is preoccupied with bringing in new members.

The group is preoccupied with making money.

Members are expected to devote inordinate amounts of time to the group and group-related activities.

Members are encouraged or required to live and/or socialize only with other group members.

The most loyal members (the “true believers”) feel there can be no life outside the context of the group. They believe there is no other way to be, and often fear reprisals to themselves or others if they leave (or even consider leaving) the group.

The Uncool Report: Bubble Gum Soda

The only saving grace on this product is that it apparently didn't last. Totally uncool...

The Uncool Report: The Fizz Cup

You want a root beer float, but you have to run to that office meeting? Well here you go. It's the "On The Go Ice Cream Float".. It screws onto your plastic root beer bottle and you squeeze the soda up into the cup with ice cream in it. I think it's uncool because a root beer float is bad enough, but if you don't even have time to eat one properly then you don't have time. But if you like this idea you can pick one up at
www.thefizzcup.com

The Cool Report: Micro Air Vehicles

File this one under "potential to be very cool", because It's not out there yet. But if this video is even partially prophetic we could really do some things that would be devastating to our enemies...

Obama Is The Worst President In History

It's tough to decide that Obama is the worst president in history based on not even one full year.. However I think it's the only conclusion real Americans can come to. When I say "real" Americans, I mean people that actually like living here, love the freedom, appreciate this experiment in democracy.
But Obama represents some kind of strange idea that America is somehow bad for the world, so he has decided to take it down from the inside. Basically we got bamboozled. He sweet talked us. Then he walked into the Oval Office and started a very quick process of dismantling government programs that actually work (the military) and throwing trillions into government programs that will only give power to itself, and take it away from the people.(health care) Keep in mind that there is nothing in the constitution that gives a "right" to health care. And rightfully so. When you start forcing me to pay for my neighbors health care.. then you take away my power to help my neighbor myself. This is a nation where the poorest among us live like kings compared to other nations.. and yet somehow we want more. And now a huge majority of the populace is on the verge of starting a new revolution because of the loss of freedom. This is only year one. This is going to be a nasty 4 years. Obama IS the worst president in history.

The Cool Report: LED Shower

I have done everything I can in my bathroom at home to make sure that my shower is bright. I found that it gives me a better start to my day then a dark, depressing shower. Well here is a solution that is very cool. It's from an Italian bath company called Visentin.. Go get one today. They are probably like a million dollars. But I think it's pretty cool.
