State of the Union Speech Odds You Can’t Bet On

We huffed and we puffed and we blew the house in, but Gambling911.com couldn't get any of our friends to offer odds on US President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech.

Once again, Paddy Power came through.  This is the same online betting company that has offered tasteless odds in the past such as whether Obama will be assassinated.  However, they are still the best marketers in the industry bar none.

Obama: Greater Than Jesus?

A Danish newspaper has suggested that US President Barack Obama is "Greater than Jesus".  The Politiken,  Denmark's oldest newspaper, featured an unsigned editorial this week.

"Obama is, of course, greater than Jesus - if we have to play that absurd Christmas game. But it is probably more meaningful to insist that with today's domestic triumph, that he has already assured himself a place in the history books - a space he has good chances of expanding considerably in coming years."

Ron Paul vs. Sarah Palin

No, there is public spat between Ron Paul and Sarah Palin like with the former Alaska Governor and California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger...at least none that we are aware of.  Instead both Palin and Paul have been doing something few of their fellow Republican colleagues appear capable of.  More air time equals more respect and that's exactly what Palin and Paul have been getting of late.

Big Brother Internet Laws in Australia

Internet censorship is due to happen in Australia, just before next years election.

As most intelligent people know, when something becomes "illegal", it often becomes more popular!  In addition, tech savvy folks will always find a way to get what they want, and criminals will still find ways to commit crimes.  I seriously doubt criminals would openly conduct their criminal business activities on a basic internet service.

I for one strongly believe that people should be able to do (and watch etc) want they want in their own homes (as long as it doesn't hurt anyone).
