Today'sJokeBuzz: Mubarak, Egypt, Devyn Rush, American Idol, CBO, Olbermann
Written by 

What’s happening in the news today?

No Need to go any further than here.  Here’s the latest from Sgt. T-Ben Boudreaux who writes jokes for Jay Leno.

Today’s jokes, rather news includes Hosni Mubarak and Egypt of course.  Also, there’s Devyn Rush,American Idol, CBO, and Keith Olbermann.  You do remember Olbermann, don’t you?

So, here’s T-Ben:

‎- Protesters in Egypt say President Hosni Mubarak is a dictator, which is true. The Egyptian government is so oppressive, not even the sphinx have the right to remain silent.

‎- Devyn Rush, the "American Idol" contestant who worked as a singing waitress at a New York diner, was fired after the show got in the way of her work schedule. She wants her job back but unfortunately, it has been filled by Taylor Hicks.

‎- North Carolina officials report that last year, 31 teachers were arrested on 81 charges of having sex with students. Psychologists say these situations can be emotionally difficult for the kids who are picked last.

‎- The Congressional Budget Office reports that Social Security will run a $45-billion deficit this year, establishing it as the federal government’s most successful program.

‎- In Utah, a girls high school basketball team is being called “unsportsmanlike” after winning a game 108 – 3. Obviously, it was a humiliating loss for their opponent, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

‎- Keith Olbermann and MSNBC have parted ways. There’s a clause in his contract that states he can’t return to TV for six months, but industry insiders say he could probably work on CNN without anyone noticing.

Sgt. T-Ben's daily radio segment, "The News You Need Now!," on WTIXFM which debuted in June 2004 and airs 3 times during the Michael In The Morning show, is a tongue-in-cheek mock news report concerning local politicians, national celebrities and various topical news stories, concluding with his signature catchphrase, "Nobody cares!"

  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
