    Billionaire Paul Allen has given millions of dollars to conservation causes over the years, including ones that support ocean exploration and preservation. But earlier this month, his 300-foot yacht Tatoosh allegedly caused significant damage to a protected coral reef in the Cayman Islands. The anchor and chain of the vessel allegedly damaged 14,000 square feet of reef on January 14, according to Cayman Islands' Department of Environment. The incident occurred in a protected area of Grand Cayman called the West Bay replenishment zone, which is near popular scuba diving sites. The M/V Tatoosh was "moored in a position explicitly directed...
  • EU leaders: 'No link' between Cologne sex attacks and migrant crisis

    Telegraph ^ | 29 Jan 2016 | Matthew Holehouse
    The sex attacks that took place in Cologne on New Year's Eve were simply a "matter of public order" and had nothing to do with the refugee crisis, Jean-Claude Juncker’s inner circle believe. The European Commission will be the "voice of reason" and tell the public that there is no link between the migration crisis affecting the continent and attacks on women in Germany, internal minutes disclose, amid growing concerns at a "xenophobic" backlash. The minutes of the European Commission's weekly cabinet meeting from January 13 hint at officials' fears that the events in Cologne could turn public opinion sharply...

    FARMINGTON, UT, November 15, 2012, ( – The ACLU has filed a lawsuit to force a Utah school district to keep a lesbian advocacy book on elementary school library shelves. In the Davis School District in Utah, children as young as kindergarten age can check out a homosexual propaganda book called In My Mothers’ House, about three adopted kids and their lesbian “mothers,” if their parents sign a permission slip. The book was removed from shelves after another Windridge mother complained to school officials when her kindergartner brought it home. It is presently kept behind the counter. This minor obstacle...
  • FBI and CIA embrace homosexual movement. Reaching out to "gay and trans community."

    The US military and State Department aren't the only branches of the US government to "go gay." The FBI and CIA, the two main federal law enforcement and surveillance organizations, have fully embraced the homosexual and transgender movements, and appear to be poised to crack down on pro-family groups and citizens who are critical. For example, the FBI is actively recruiting homosexual and "transgender" employees and agents. The FBI's "careers" website now boasts a page advising potential (and current) job applicants. The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has actually been involved with the homosexual movement for over 15 years, according to...

I guess if withdrawal is conditions-based, his next conclusion will be that we might just be there for 100 years.

  • Top medical journal blasts "designer vagina" craze

    One of the world's most prestigious health journals has lashed a fast-growing trend in the United States and Britain for "designer vaginas," the tabloid term for cosmetic surgery to the female genitalia. The fashion is being driven by commercial and media pressures that exploit women's insecurities and is fraught with unknowns, including a risk to sexual arousal, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) says. Known as elective genitoplasty, the surgery usually entails shortening or changing the shape of the outer lips, or labia, but may also include reduction in the hood of skin covering the clitoris or shortening the vagina itself....

    Perhaps it's time to recolonize the Middle East. If we get our NATO allies and Russia together with us on the same page and invade the entire Muslim Middle East and re-establish European run colonial governments, we could save a lot of money on oil and put an end to government sponsored terrorism. Together, this alliance would have 90% of the world's military might. Without the mother's milk of oil revenue, it will be far more difficult fot terrorists to obtain the financing for nuclear weapon development or purchase.
