I guess this tells us he wasn't in rehab as many thought. I've been waiting for TMZ to have something on Artie for two weeks. You've been sleeping on the job TMZ. We didn't need to know where Elin Nordegren was, we needed to know where Artie was.

Please don't tell me listeners of the Stern Show will have to go another year with the saga. Keep in mind, Artie got violent and threw a cd at his assistant. The assistant should have sued Artie, Howard, and Mel for allowing and condoning a hostile work environment. If they had to pay millions, Artie might have learned his lesson. The only victims in this are the listeners of Howard Stern. Shame on you Howard, a definite blemish on the Stern franchise.

Sad. I was hoping he had been in rehab for the last couple weeks. I too was wondering when TMZ would find out where he's been hiding out. He IS incredibly talented but really needs help. Its frustrating as a fan to see him go down this sliding road. Hopefully this will be a wakeup call for those around him to finally intervene.

Obviously he has a problem....what kills me is that he has an awesome job, where he has to do actually nothing....and then he comments on women as if he is a gift from God...

I hope he gets well...I don't wish him any harm, but he needs to realize he needs help.

IN GOD WE TRUST

Gun owners...look what's on the 2010 tax return....






As if we didn't have enough to get upset about! If you have a gun, I hope it isn't registered!

It begins... more Freedom gone.... the right to protect yourself and your family gone! Now ALL GUNS must be listed on your next (2010) tax return!




Senate Bill SB-2099 will require us to put on our 2009 1040 federal tax form all guns that you have or own.
It will require fingerprints and a tax of $50 per gun.
This bill was introduced on February 24, 2009, by the Obama staff. BUT, this bill will only become public knowledge 30 days after the new law becomes effective! This is an amendment to the Internal Revenue Act of 1986. This means that the Finance Committee has passed this without the Senate voting on it at all. Trust Obama? You must be kidding!

The full text of the IRS amendment is on the U.S. Senate homepage: www.senate.gov. You can find the bill by doing a search by the bill number, SB-2099. You know who to call; I strongly suggest you do. Please send a copy of this e-mail to every gun owner you know.

Text of H.R.45 as Introduced in House: Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009: www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h45/text
Obama's Congress is now starting on the firearms confiscation bill. If it passes, gun owners will become criminals if you don't fully comply.

It has begun... Whatever Obama's "Secret Master Plan" is... this is just the 'tip of the iceberg!'

Very Important for you to be aware of a new bill HR 45 introduced into the House. This is the Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sale Act of 2009.
Even gun shop owners didn't know about this because the government is trying to fly it under the radar as a 'minor' IRS revision, and, as usual, the 'political' lawmakers did not read this bill before signing and approving it!

To find out about this - go to any government website and type in HR 45 or Goggle HR 45 Blair Holt Firearm Licensing & Record of Sales Act of 2009. You will get all the information.

Basically this would make it illegal to own a firearm - any rifle with a clip or ANY pistol unless: 1) It is registered 2) You are fingerprinted 3) You supply a current Driver's License 4) You supply your Social Security number 5) You will submit to a physical & mental evaluation at any time of their choosing
Each update change or ownership through private or public sale must be reported and costs $25. Failure to do so you automatically lose the right to own a firearm and are subject up to a year in jail.
There is a child provision clause on page 16 section 305 stating a child-access provision. Gun must be locked and inaccessible to any child under 18. They would have the right to come and inspect that you are storing your gun safely away from accessibility to children and fine is punishable for up to 5 years in prison.

If you think this is a joke - go to the website and take your pick of many options to read this.. It is long and lengthy. But, more and more people are becoming aware of this. Pass the word along. Any hunters in your family pass this along.
This is just a "termite" approach to complete confiscation of guns and disarming of our society to the point we have no defense - chip away a little here and there until the goal is accomplished before anyone realizes it.

This is one to act on whether you own a gun or not..

Artie has very little talent. To compare him to Belushi and Candy is laughable. His constant attention whoring for the past few years has ruined Howard's show. I hope he gets better, but I also hope he's done on Sirius.
