Irony, ain’t it a bitch


After engaging in a massive PR campaign to counteract the depictions of it in the soon-to-be released Borat movie and show the world that it really is an industrialized, modern nation, Kazakhstan’s central bank has committed a small blunder which can only be described as ironic: they spelled ‘bank’ wrong on 80% of their newly-issued bank notes, leading to a massive recall.AA Seems as though all those government funds spent on the ad campaign might have been better directed towards a spell check program for the central bank’s printing program…

Cuz the Bush’s Love the Children[?]


So, let’s start from the beginning. Some of you may have heard of an educational program in this country called ‘No Child Left Behind‘, instituted during Bush’s first term [this isn’t commentary for or against that program, which remains controversial as it supposedly encourages ‘teaching to the test’].

Neil Bush is our president’s younger brother, who seems to have been a little bit of a failure until recently. What changed you ask? Well, I’ll tell you. Neil is now experiencing measured success distributing a new teaching aid, ‘curriculum on wheels‘ [or COWs], that basically uses various multimedia methods of covering information that will most likely be seen on the state testing material in place due to ‘No Child Left Behind’. It projects videos, plays music and lectures…basically, its a teahcer in a box with all the answers to the test. Backed by some Saudi investors, Neil has sold 1,700 of the units since 2005, mainly in Texas, where Houston’s school system has recently authorized 200,000 dollars for COW purchases.

Now, I don’t want to throw around assumptions here, but let’s all think for a moment. President’s [loser] brother, getting rich off of a questionable education reform system, instituting pseudo teacher-replacing technology, in Texas, with financial backing from Saudi investors. Only things missing are some hanging chads in Florida.

I mean, a machine that ‘teaches’ children government controlled information through sing-song memorization? I guess Orwell and Huxley are off the reading list.

And Another One [Kofi]

Jay-Z is tricking the tricksters! He’s out of retirement, has his #45 album coming out, debuted his new music video on Monday Night football with Danika and friends andddddd hes now the "co-brand director" of Bud Select of Anheuser-Busch.

"Jay-Z also will be involved in providing direction on other upcoming Budweiser Select television ads, radio spots, print campaigns and several high-profile events."

It’s not that simple though, Jay is also allies with Coke who is in the midst of a high-profile campaign across the board on peer-to-peer networks. If you can’t make money selling records, get sponsored and give it to people for free!

If you are unsure why this is all relevant, please consult this Rhymepays encyclopedia.

[Ed. it should be interesting when Jaz-O drops the truth!- you’re getting paid off it or youre not!]
