One email could help protect children.

What would you think of a program that would alert you when a sex offender moved into your area? Would there be anyone opposed to this, except for maybe the sex offender himself?

The Department of Law Enforcement in Miami-Dade county in Florida is doing just that. They are contacting people via email to inform them when a sex offender moves within 1/4mile - 5 miles of their neighborhood. What an ingenious, yet simple, idea! All you do is register with them online and you're put on their contact list.

Just think of how many lives this could potentially save. Remember Jessica Lunsford? Such a beautiful little girl, taken much too soon by a repeat sex offender. When her body was found, she was only 150 yards from her own home. That is sickening.

What could we do to save these children? For one, all states could do exactly what the Miami-Dade police are doing. And I don't even want to hear that we'd be invading the rights of the sex offenders. They gave up that right when they decided to prey on innocent children. If it were up to me, they'd all be castrated and tattoed with the word "PERVERT" on the front of their heads.

Another example of trying to pass the blame.

Whatever happened to taking responsibility for your own actions? Are the people of today such crybabies that they just can't admit when they've screwed up?

I'm talking about Arelia Margarita Taveras. What is her deal? She lost all of her money, almost a MILLION dollars gambling. So now, she's decided to sue for $20 million. Yeah, she's suing six Atlantic City casinos and one in Las Vegas. Why? Because it was THEIR responsibility to see she had a problem, and they did nothing to stop her gambling.

This is what she says. "They knew I was going for days without eating or sleeping. I would pass out at the tables. They had a duty of care to me. Nobody in their right mind would gamble for four or five straight days without sleeping." She says she would go days at a time at the tables, not eating or sleeping, brushing her teeth with disposable wipes so she didn't have to leave.

Well if you ask me, nobody in their right mind would award this woman anything for being a dumbass! And if the casino had told her to leave, I'm sure she would have sued them for something completely different!

Did I mention she's a laywer? Figures.

And the bearded prize goes too.........

I learned something new today! Did you know that the United States has a team of hairy men representing us worldwide? It's true! Beard Team USA just placed in four out of 17 categories in the World Beard & Moustache Championships. The Freestyle category is by far the most fun! Pretty much anything goes in this category.

Talk about commitment! Some of these guys grow out their facial hair for SIX YEARS to compete! Can you imagine? Backstage before the competition men apply gel and hairspray to their facial hair. Not one hair is out of place! They take this thing seriously! To view more great photos, go to:
