    50K? That's it? Sheesh.
    And, when are males going to be allowed to enter the Miss America contest? We can shave and tuck our balls back. C'mon. We let you vote and stuff.

    You don't have to let us win. Just allowing males to enter would double ad revenues for your beauty pagent. And we have males who are just as hot as females on display for you in Las Vegas. We COULD compete with you for the crown.
    Look at Susy Passmore and Danica Patrick of arca and nascar/indycar fame. We let those gals compete and doubled our ad revenues. (almost tripled when we let them win. he he)

    To clarify....Susy Passmore can outdrive any man I've ever seen drive a stock car. She has one aim, to win.
    Anyway, if you review her races, you will see men ganging-up on her and making it so she can't win, and officials looking the other way.
    @Susy Passmore wherever you are. Move to Europe. 🙂

    there are similarities between the Miss America contest and a cattle show at the state fair

    Oopsy. CHRISTI PASSMORE. The greatest talent driver ever produced by an American couple to date. 🙂
    "Penelope Pitstop" of Wacky Races cartoon fame in the flesh.
    You recall Snidley Whiplash and his dog 'Muttley'. "Snicker, snicker, snicker."-Muttley
    Their racecar resembled the chunnel-type boring machine used to bore a tunnel from Langley to Denver. Only one picture of this machine exists, and it has USAF stickers on it.
    There is a maglev train that travels at an estimated 500 mph that runs from Virginia to Colorado. The CIA moved to Denver in 2006. There are no satellite images of trucks moving CIA belongings over surface roads.
    I have personally spoken to several active duty among my customer base who have been on that maglev train @ est. 500 mph. Under oath I swear..

    These men (actibe duty customers of mine for years) were ALL given "rapid deployment vaccines" before being allowed on the maglev.
    "I don't know what was in RDVs they injected me with. But none of us experienced an erection for about 3 weeks after riding on the maglev."-Victor, honorably discharged after suffering massive electric shock...accidentally exposed to thousands of volts/watts of electricity in the course of duty.
    Victor has a Saudi bride and 3 of the best kids you could ever know. He loves Jesus Christ, btw.

    So they actually still hold this T&A "scholarship" farce and people still care? Why any woman would mince around in high heels and a bathing suit to have their assets ogled by goaty old men is beyond me. When oh when will women value themselves more than being graded like sides of beef?

    That the CIA moved to Denver in 2006 is common knowledge. (you van Google it, for example)
    That CIA agents are being transferred to Homeland Security is yet only known to citizens such as myself. But that President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act of congress into law on Dec. 31, 2012 escaped your new year's eve party notice.
    As of Jan. 1, US troops may legally be used to combat street gangs of America.

    I didn't know we still had these ridiculous game shows. This demonstrates how an education is an unnecessary tool for success. Looks and "who you blow, rather than what you know" is more important than achievement. I consider this an embarrassment to American society and women really should use silicon for other purposes. Wait, I feel a yawn coming on...

    @Wes. Do you always barge-in to a room with your mouth flapping?
    Post-and-go microbloggers are the scourge of US here.

    *might, rather and above.
    The USA is the mightiest nation that EVER existsed, and BY FAR we are!
    We have THE FORCE and we have THE WILL. And now, by Prsesident Obama's authority WE HAVE THE MEANS to wipe-oit every single American street gang.

    When I was a kid, beauty pageants were cool, we watched them like they were the Superbowl. Now that I'm a grown-up, they seem degrading to women. Who would stand up there and parade around to get a score on their looks? (and don't say it's about talent, if so, women of more average size and shapes would be standing up there.) But I never understood watching Jersey Shore either, so I guess I outta touch.
