  • Why Is The Media Silent About The Crucifixion Of Christians By Radical Jihadists?

    content/uploads/2014/05/Christian-Crucified-In-Syria1-300x300.png" width="300" height="300" />Could you imagine the uproar in the mainstream media that we would see if a member of a politically favored class of people was crucified for who or what they are? There would be front page headlines for weeks. But because members of a politically favored class (Muslims) are doing it to members of a non-politically favored class (Christians), it is not newsworthy at all according to the media. In many instances, Christians are being crucified by jihadists that are actually being assisted and funded by the governments of the United States and Saudi Arabia. Yes, our...
  • The Court Predator (Jimmy Savile: BBC Serial Pedophile)

    Jimmy Savile is entirely unknown to Americans. Which is as it should be. He was a British disc jockey and children's-TV host, but, even by the debased standards of those callings, he didn't appear to have any particular talent. Yet, for half a century, until his death a year ago, he was one of the BBC's biggest stars: He hosted the first edition of Top of the Pops on TV in 1964, and he was there for the last in 2006. He had no discernible interest in pop music, but for millions of Britons his radio show was the accompaniment...

    Late Thursday, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission announced that next year’s Playmate of the Year will be former White House press corps member Helen Thomas. The EEOC declared this its latestvictory in a never-ending quest for equality in the workplace. In a related story, shortly after the EEOC announcement, Hugh Hefner, 96, founder of Playboy Enterprises, died of a massive heart attack in his Los Angeles mansion. Uh, just kidding. I’m merely demonstrating that when we take social engineering to its logical conclusion, we get illogical results.

  • .5-Year TIPS Sold At Negative Yield For First Time

    Wall Street Journal ^ | OCTOBER 25, 2010 | Deborah Lynn Blumberg
    NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--The government sold five-year Treasury inflation protected securities Monday at a negative yield for the first time ever, a sign of investors' strong conviction that the Federal Reserve will buy more bonds, which could stoke inflation. The government sold $10 billion in previously sold five-year TIPS for negative 0.55% yield after selling them at a 0.550% yield when they were originally sold in April. Because the market expects inflation will be positive over the next five years though, the expected return for the five-year TIPS is still positive. Investors have been buying TIPS, which provide protection against...

    MINNEAPOLIS – Two Minnesota prosecutors say they won't file charges against a man who investigators say admitted posting anti-Muslim images in front of a mosque, a Somali-owned store and other spots. They say the cartoons are protected under the First Amendment. The posters put up last month in the St. Cloud area depicted images such as the Prophet Muhammad engaged in bestiality and an Islamic crescent with a swastika inside it. Some in the community say there should be legal consequences. But the chief prosecutors in both counties where the cartoons were found said they must be considered free speech.

    SAN FRANCISCO -- An immigrant suspected of being in the United States illegally - freed after being shielded from possible deportation by San Francisco officials despite committing two gang-related assaults as a juvenile - faces charges that he tried to stab a man to death last year in San Mateo County, authorities say. The case of Eric Antonio Uc-Cahun, now 19, a native of Mexico, is the second in which a youthful offender protected from deportation in San Francisco has later been arrested for a violent crime as an adult. The San Mateo County stabbing was especially vicious, authorities said...

    BIGFOOT, the legendary hairy man-beast said to roam the wildernesses of North America, is so rare it risks extinction and should be protected, according to a slightly confused Canadian MP. "The debate over their existence is moot in the circumstance of their tenuous hold on merely existing," reads a petition presented by Mike Lake to Parliament. "Therefore, the petitioners request the House of Commons to establish . . . legislation to affect immediate protection of Bigfoot."
  • Troubled waters - Plan to increase California's marine protected areas worries fishing industry

    San Diego Union - Tribune ^ | 9/17/06 | Terry Rogers
    Aided by a governor who has promised to preserve the coast, California is expanding its network of areas where fishing and other marine harvesting are banned or restricted. The idea is to better safeguard the diversity and abundance of marine life by limiting those activities in key habitats such as lagoons, bays, kelp forests, rocky reefs and the edges of marine canyons. California already has 80 “marine protected areas” covering about 4 percent of state waters, but scientists agree that most of those sites are too small to help depleted species rebound. “No other state in the Union has done...

He will also be sentenced for dissuading a witness from reporting a crime. Prosecutor Dwayne Moring said he was satistifed with the verdict.

    The Governor's state-of-the-state address caused quite a stir. Most Republicans were happy, most Democrats were angry, and the media -- whose impossible job for four years was to make Gray Davis look interesting -- loved it. From their perspective, Arnold has issued a declaration of war and, if nothing else, war is interesting. For California taxpayers, the substance of Schwarzenegger's speech was "A-plus" material. Sure, the reiteration of his "no tax" pledge was the centerpiece, but this time we saw something new. The entire theme of his address was that now is the time to stop ignoring the structural problems...
  • Rules to favor builders over protected species - Development May Endanger Protected Species

    WASHINGTON - The Bush administration said Friday it will allow developers to complete construction and other projects even after belated discoveries that the work could endanger protected species. The new rules from the Interior Department's Fish and Wildlife Service restore a Clinton-era initiative known as "no surprises." It will let federal agencies give blanket assurances to home builders, timber and mining companies and other developers that they won't have unforeseen requirements to protect rare species once a project has begun. A federal judge had blocked the rules last June, telling the government it needed to hear more ideas from the...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Federal wildlife officials agreed to grant protection to the California tiger salamander and its habitat, handing a major victory to conservationists but angering farmers and real estate developers. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Monday it will list the salamander as a threatened species under the federal Endangered Species Act - a designation that makes it unlawful to harm the salamander and restricts development in its habitat, which is primarily found in the Central Valley, Central Coast and San Francisco Bay area. "It's a huge conservation milestone because we're protecting one of California's most imperiled...
