Crackling/"rustling" noise in Chrysler 300M by Percival P. Cassidy[_2_]
While driving at freeway speeds today, I could hear an annoying noise in our '02 Chrysler 300M -- like rustling leaves, perhaps, but loud and constant. Turning off the fan didn't seem to make any difference. When the car was not moving, there was no such sound, even when I cranked the fan up to...

"global warming" isn't the problem, overpopulation is. by Clinton Communism

Don't Fire That Loser Colbert - Fire His Knuckle-draggingChicken-gut-eating Crowd by Rebos
With all due apologies for language and content, I’d like you to watch the two short excerpts of the “political comedy” — actually just crude mockery — of Stephen Colbert. The first shows Colbert on Monday night, and the second is from last summer. In both, he makes essentially the same joke...
