Iman al-Obeidi

Last Saturday, a young woman lawyer named Iman al-Obeidi burst into a Tripoli hotel and pleaded with foreign journalists for help, showing bruises and crying that she had just been gang-raped by 15 of Qaddafi's men. She screamed as she was dragged away by Libyan agents and has not been seen since. Let’s raise a massive outcry for Turkey, which has helped free other Libyan hostages, to help save Iman.

Finding Tampa

A Little Nostalgia

Maas Brothers
Was a leading Tampa, Florida, department store founded by Abe and Isaac Maas in 1886. It grew from a small 23' by 90' store to a chain of 39 stores across the state of Florida. The Maas Brothers brand went defunct in 1991 when it was consolidated into the Burdines department store chain.

I was visiting a friend and look what i found.

Uterus Has Joined Facebook

"Florida's Republican House leadership has banned the word "uterus" from the house floor. So Uterus has joined Facebook, hoping to find some friends to say there's nothing nasty or 'inappropriate' with "uterus."

Mr. Jimmy Carter:

On behalf of several alternative bloggers and other members of Cuban civil society, we would like to give you this present. This is a small sample of the food that the self-employed are able to make from maní, the word Cubans use for peanuts, that dried fruit that you know so well.

One Of America's Worst Governor?

There are a lot of shitty governors in America right now!
And to nobody's surprise, they're all Republicans.
Rick Scott was once the CEO of Columbia/HCA, a massive hospital chain. The federal government fined Columbia/HCA for Medicaid and Medicare fraud. That fine, a jaw-dropping 1.7 billion dollars, is the largest in American history.

But instead of going to jail, Rick Scott became the governor of Florida.

Marla Speaks Out

"I got a lot of flack from the homeowner association about doing this. It seems that even though we live in Hometown USA. We must fill out an ARC form just to make your neighborhood beautiful. This really made me angry. Its not like I was putting unsightly trash on the porch or around my house. I also got homeowners violations for the patio furniture I put outside. My question is are we really free in hometown USA?" ......Marla The Plant Lady
