Standing with our president to wish the Queen of England a happy birthday

Happy Birthday Queen of England.   I hope your birthday in April was as momentous as the one you had yesterday.

On a seperate but related note, I hope President Obama got her something thoughtful and cool for her birthday this year.  

Maybe something like a shop vac.  It is very utilitarian like the Queen herself.

Information Request

Does anyone know what all this hoopla over Helen Thomas is about?

It seems like the wingnutosphere is all up in arms about something she did or said.  Problem is I cant find anything about it.

I looked all over the reputable news sites (like CNN, CBS and ABCnews) and nothing.

This reeks of another witch hunt.   It is absolutely reprehensible the lengths some people will go to destroy a sweet little old lady.

Another no-bailout-taking automaker under investigation for stuck gas pedal problems

Dont get me wrong.  I'm no fan of the Ford.

But it is interesting that another of GM and Chrysler's chief competitors is the subject of a federal probe into sticking gas pedal issues.  This is why we need  government control over auto manufacturers.  You don't hear about Chevy gas pedals sticking.  You dont hear about Dodge gas pedals sticking.  You know why?  Because of government!

Incidentally, I think it's high time that the government take a look into Daihatsu.   Their gas pedals are always sticking.   Seriously guys, "Daihatsu" is the Chinese word for "death trap".
