A RECENT HARRIS POLL SAYS THAT TWO THIRDS OF AMERICAN ADULTS ADMIT TO BEING IN THE DARK ABOUT POLITICS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES. ONLY THREE PERCENT OF WOMEN AND FOURTEEN PERCENT OF MEN SAID THEY ARE EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE ON WORLD POLITICS. LACK OF INTEREST IS A MAJOR REASON FOR THE PROBLEM. OVER HALF OF THE PEOPLE POLLED SAID THEY THEY DO NOT LIKE LEARNING ABOUT POLITICAL ISSUES IN OTHER COUNTRIES. I GUESS CLIMATE CHANGE AND THE DEATH AND MUTILATION OF MILLIONS OF PEOPLE, INCLUDING *THE CHILDREN* ARE *POLITICAL ISSUES*. THE HARRIS POLL DID NOT ASK THE SAME GROUP ABOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE Of HOLLYWOOD SCANKS’ DRUG HABITS.

THE AVERAGE AMERICAN’S LIFE EXPECTANCY HAS BEEN DECLINING IN RELATION TO OTHER COUNTRIES. CURRENTLY, AMERICA IS RANKED FORTY-SECOND IN LIFE EXPECTANCY. AP REPORTS THAT THE US HAS BEEN SLIPPING IN THE RANKS FOR DECADES AS OTHER COUNTRIES ARE IMPROVING HEALTH CARE NUTRITION AND LIFESTYLES. THE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON’S DR. CHRISTOPHER MURRAY SAID QUOTE SOMETHING’S WRONG HERE WHEN ONE OF THE RICHEST COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD, THE ONE THAT SPENDS THE MOST ON HEALTH CARE, IS NOT ABLE TO KEEP UP WITH OTHER COUNTRIES. UNQUOTE. TOO BAD AMERICANS ARE TOO BORED BY THE SUBJECT TO CONSIDER THAT MUCH OF THE MONEY AMERICA SPENDS ON HEALTHCARE GOES TO PAY THE SALARIES OF FOR PROFIT INSURANCE COMPANY CEO’S. *YUCK*

THE SADISTIC YET MORONIC STATE OF TEXAS HAS *PROUDLY* MURDERRED ITS FOUR HUNDREDTH PRISONER SINCE THE DEATH PENALTY WAS REINSTATED BY THE SUPREME COURT IN 1976. THE EUROPEAN UNION FORMALLY EXPRESSED GREAT REGRET AT THE EXECUTION. THE EU STATED QUOTE THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST THAT THE USE OF THE DEATH PENALTY SERVES AS A DETERRENT AGAINST VIOLENT CRIME. UNQUOTE. TEX-ASS GOVERNER RICK PERRY REPLIED QUOTE WHILE WE RESPECT OUR FRIENDS IN EUROPE, TEXANS ARE DOING JUST FINE GOVERNING TEX-ASS. NOTE GOVERNER PERRY DID *NOT* MENTION THE LOUSY JOB TEXANS ARE DOING OF GOVERNING THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE. TEX-ASS HAS KILLED MORE THAN ONE THIRD OF ALL PRISONERS EXECUTED IN THE US SINCE 1976. NON- MURDERER KENNETH FOSTER IS DUE TO BE MURDERED BY THE STATE OF TEX-ASS ON AUGUST 30. PLEASE GO TO FREEKENNETH.COM TO FIND OUT HOW YOU CAN TAKE ACTION TO SAVE HIM. FOSTER WAS CONVICTED OF BEING A PARTY TO THE CRIME OF MURDER BUT HE DID NOT MURDER ANYONE HIMSELF. FOSTER HAS BEEN A PEACEFUL ACTIVIST AGAINST THE DEATH PENALTY WHICH MAKES ME WONDER IF THIS EXECUTION IS NOT A POLITICAL ONE.

AP REPORTS (VIA ANDYMATIC’S BLOG) THAT THERE WAS A LEAK OF HIGHLY ENRICHED URANIUM AT A NUCLEAR FUEL PROCESSING PLANT NEAR KNOXVILL, TENNESEE. BUT GUESS WHAT? THE LEAK TOOK PLACE IN 2004 YET THE GOVERNEMENT KEPT IT SECRED FOR THREE YEARS IN ORDER TO PROTECT “NATIONAL SECURITY. NINE GALLONS OF HIGHLY ENRICHED URANIUM SOLUTION SPILLED ONTO THE FLOOR AND RAN INTO THE HALLWAY OF A -YOU GUESSED IT- PRIVATIZED NUCLEAR FUEL PROCESSING PLANT. THE NUCLEAR REGULATORY AGENCY WROTE QUOTE IT IS LIKELY THAT AT LEAST ONE WORKER WOULD HAVE RECEIVED AN EXPOSURE HIGH ENOUGH TO CAUSE ACUTE HEALTH EFFECTS OR DEATH. UNQUOTE. AGENCY COMMISIONER EDWARD MCGAFFIAN JR. SAID QUOTE WE DON’T WANT ANY SECURITY INFORMATION OUT THERE THAT’S GOING TO HELP A TERRORIST,’ WHEN ASKED WHY THE INFORMATION HAD TO BE KEPT FROM THE PUBLIC. SO I GUESS IT’S OK TO COMMIT A TERRORIST ACT BY LEAKING NUCLEAR FUEL AND NOT WARNING THE PUBLIC ABOUT IT, BUT IT’S NOT OK TO WARN PEOPLE IF YOU ARE NUKING THEM. CONFUSED? YOU’LL STILL BE AFTER THE NEXT EPISODE OF THE ECLECTIC NEWS BRIEF.

  1. Loved the candle light effect. Creative use of that which tries to stop you, Richard.

    Also, your background films make me think, “Maybe Busch should think about showing hot Republican girls dancing or doing exercises. Then we can all follow like sheep to do bad things. Heil Dub-ya!”
