Islama Dama Ding Dong


Why 'Islamophobia' is a brilliant term

The fact remains that the term "Islamophobia" has one purpose – to suppress any criticism, legitimate or not, of Islam. And given the cowardice of the Western media, and the collusion of the left in banning any such criticism (while piling it on Christianity and Christians), it is working.

Latest proof: This past week a man in New York was charged with two felonies for what is being labeled the hate crime of putting a Quran in a toilet at Pace College. Not misdemeanors, mind you, felonies. Meanwhile, the man who put a crucifix in a jar of urine continues to have his artwork – "Pi-- Christ" – displayed at galleries and museums. A Quran in a toilet is a hate crime; a crucifix in pee is a work of art. Thanks in part to that brilliant term "Islamophobia."

Vegetarianism


It is so completely a religion it's not even funny. There are people in every religion who act and think the same way. The only difference is what they worship. Yes, global warming, too.

Tom Snyder


"Tom Snyder, who pioneered the late-late network TV talk show with a personal yet abrasive style and his robust, trademark laugh, has died from complications associated with leukemia. He was 71."


I liked watching Tom Snyder, he was down-to-earth, loved to laugh, and was not a pushover. My favorite interviews were with Robert Blake. He was on the show a lot although I was unable to find any at YouTube. Robert Blake was very candid with Tom about the many things that went on in his life, I think because they were friends.

Here's a Tom Snyder "greatest hits" montage:



He's had his share of difficult guests, here's Johnny "Rotten" Lydon:



Rest in peace, Tom.

T-Shirt Folding


Some people do it the easy way:


And some people have to complicate it:


I've been somewhere in between, but I'm leaning towards that easy way now. That's fast once you got the moves right.

Do They Hear Voices? Or Squeaks?


Scientists breed world’s first mentally ill mouse

SCIENTISTS have created the world’s first schizophrenic mice in an attempt to gain a better understanding of the illness.


How can you tell if a mouse is schizophrenic? Do they wear little tin-foil hats to keep the mind-control beams away? Even if you can tell I don't think you could get a clear picture of what's going on in the mind of a mouse to study treatments. They don't even fully understand schizophrenia in humans.

No Consequences


Chief Frustrated After 11 Arrested Fugitives Get Quick Release

"The system is broke. We need to rework the system," Chief McCoy said Friday. "It's kinda like trying to mop your floor with a hole in the mop bucket. You are just going to keep making a bigger mess. We have got to put these people in jail and keep them there."

On average, the fugitives taken down in last week's sweep each have nine prior arrests. Jose Ortiz Concepcion has been arrested 14 times. Accused murderer Channing Madison has been arrested nine times. Nicole Partee was arrested for the 19th time Wednesday for allegedly helping a murderer dump his victim's body.

"There are no consequences. I am a big believer, if there were more consequences early on, they would not step it up to the next level," McCoy said.

If this cat settles in on your bed in the nursing home, it means you have less than 2 hours to live.

Redefining Hate


This is hate speech in Canada:

“I can't figure out why the homosexuals I ran into are on the side of the Muslims,” Mr. Whatcott wrote on the Web site. “After all, Muslims who practice Sharia law tend to advocate beheading homosexuals.”


Can't you just feel the hatred dripping from those awful lies?

There is absolutely no hatred here however.

As a matter of fact, clicking a few of the "related" videos you will find a plethora of videos proclaiming their love of Americans and Jews and their 1st amendment rights to say it. A veritable non-hate fest.

There is also no hate behind this. Just business.

This Could Not Have Happened


Boxer is shot after asking drinkers not to smoke

Witnesses said Nigerian-born Mr Oyebola had politely stepped in to help staff who had asked the three men to observe the smoking ban. One said: 'He wasn't being aggressive. He pointed out that smoking was now against the law.

'He was just being a good citizen but the three saw it as a sign of disrespect. On their way out one pulled a gun and started firing at James.'


How do I know it couldn't have happened? Because everyone knows England has strict anti-gun laws - the police don't even carry guns. Anti-gun laws = No guns. Right? Law abiding citizens are safe from gun violence.

A Witch! A Witch!


"May we burn her?" --Monty Python, Holy Grail

No, it's not the lady in the red dress, but could it be the lady at the end of the video?



This is just too funny, people are so silly. I like how it's the most stereotypical Halloween witch possible. At least it's more amusing than the Mary apparitions.

Innocent?


Neal Boortz explained something today that really bothers me every time I hear someone say it. Innocent until proven guilty. People throw that around like someone is really completely innocent - don't dare say he committed a crime, you have to use "allegedly" every time you talk about it. The innocent part is in the eyes of the law, not "the truth." If you rob a bank, your guilty of robbing a bank the moment you do it. That's the truth. Maybe you didn't get caught, you are still guilty of the crime.

One day they catch up to you, are you suddenly innocent? No, but the government can't punish you for the crime until you are proven guilty in a court of law. If they can't prove it, you go free - doesn't mean you are innocent of the crime - just means the government can't prove it and can't punish you.

If you never committed a crime and you get framed, found guilty and put in jail, does that mean you really committed the crime? Of course not, you are innocent - in reality - but not in the eyes of the law. I hope you can get that straightened out.

There can be a huge difference between reality and "the eyes of the law." Too often there is.

There are way too many people in this country who can't wrap their minds around that. Pehaps they don't want to.

Anyway, this is what Neal said about it.

How Long Are Your Going To Be?


Home Intruder Found Sitting On Toilet

When she got home, she noticed that the bathroom door was closed. She opened the door and the man was sitting there.

Bledsoe said the woman asked the man a couple of questions, including "How long are you going to be?" but didn't understand the man's response because it was in Spanish.


Why not offer him a magazine?

My first question would be, "What were you thinking?"

You Want These People In Charge Of Your Healthcare?


Home snatched over $1.63 has miraculous resolution

According to the paper, the saga began in 1996 when the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office mailed a $1.63 property tax bill for the Atwoods' home in Slidell, La., a suburb of New Orleans.

Though the couple had never moved, the bill was returned to the sheriff's office, because their official address had changed due to a postal system revision.

The Atwoods learned of the nightmare in 2000 when they discovered their four-bedroom, two-bath home – which they had owned mortgage-free since 1968 – had been sold behind their backs in 1997 through a tax sale for the $1.63 in unpaid taxes, plus 10 cents interest and $125 in costs associated with the sale.

"The sheriff's office could have easily found us," Dolores Atwood said. "We're in the phone book. We didn't go anywhere. ... And we never thought about telling the assessor's office about our address change because we've never had to pay property taxes before."

She says the house previously was exempt from property taxes under the state's homestead provision, meaning there had never been any tax bill. But a new assessment had pushed the value assigned to the home above the exemption level by $100.


The government workers involved in this should be in jail. They still never did the right thing, it took a private individual to step up.

Everybody Turned Her In


Police Say Mom Had Kids Steal Puppy From Store

The mother, Tami Loechner, was arrested Wednesday evening. Channel 9 viewers who saw the surveillance video on Eyewitness News at 5:00 called police and identified her. "It was amazing to me how many phone calls came in right away, and they all pointed straight to her," said Lt. Shalyn Somers with the St. Cloud Police Department.


I was driving by that store when the WFTV truck pulled in. I thought they were stopping for a slice of pizza or something, it didn't look like anything else was going on.

Thanks To Who?


1 nation under Hindu gods?

It is particularly troubling to see the U.S. Senate disregard a long history of Christian prayers in favor of modern, pluralistic prayers to gods that have no relationship to this country or the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that we cherish. Mr. Zed certainly has the freedom to exercise his Hindu beliefs, but only because that is an unalienable right given by the God of creation and protected in this land. Buddhists, Muslims, Hindus, etc., have freedom of conscience in this country that is not extended to Christians in other nations under other "gods." Our government should and indeed must affirm that Almighty God is the source of that right for it to continue.

But ... It's Still a Butterfly


Evolution Occurs in the Blink of an Eye

A population of butterflies has evolved in a flash on a South Pacific island to fend off a deadly parasite.

The proportion of male Blue Moon butterflies dropped to a precarious 1 percent as the parasite targeted males. Then, within the span of a mere 10 generations, the males evolved an immunity that allowed their population share to soar to nearly 40 percent—all in less than a year.


So, if we stop treating cancer, aids and other diseases, we would evolve an immunity to them and we wouldn't have to worry about them. Problem solved! Yea!

Welcome To Florida


We've been accepting applications at work and one of the applicants last worked as a construction worker in Miami. When filling out the "reason for leaving" part of the application he put, "Moved to Florida."

A little peek into the mindset.

Do You Surf The Web?


You should watch this video. The less tech savy you are the more you need to see it.



I've received a few of these emails and almost been fooled by them because I have been sent legitimate e-cards before. Be careful out there.

Independance Day


On this 4th of July, have a listen to this program about American prophets, our country's founding Fathers. Yes, it's worth 30 minutes of your time.

When your finished, go grill up a hamburger or something. Have a wonderful 4th of July!

Can't Do The Time, Don't Do The Crime


A customer at a Subway restaurant in Plantation, Fl defended himself and others from 2 armed robbers by shooting them. (the robbers, not the customers)

Perfectly legal and above board. As they say on Gunsmoke, "It was a fair fight, Matt."

The dead guy's Grandmother apparently thinks her grandson should have the right to rob someone and threaten them at gunpoint. Doesn't work that way, not in Florida anyway.

Teach your children stealing is wrong, dead wrong.

I Can Understand That


Man Beats Peacock He Says Was Vampire

Charmed employees were feeding him bread when the man appeared.

He seized the iridescent bird by the neck, hurled it to the ground and started kicking and stomping the creature, said worker Felicia Finnegan, 19.

"He was going crazy," she said.

Asked what he was doing, she said, the attacker explained, "'I'm killing a vampire!'"


I'm kidding, I really can't understand that at all. Everyone knows peacocks are from Planet X.

Chertoff Interview


Chertoff: We can't really enforce laws on illegals

Chertoff said Senate opponents deprived his department of the ability to ensure stricter enforcement by requiring companies to enter in a system to check their employees' work status.

"That would be the single greatest additional weapon we could use if we're serious about tackling this problem," he said. "I wish we had some of the tools that were left on the floor of the Senate when they abandoned the bill last week, but we will do what we have to do with the resources we have at our disposal."


So why not introduce a bill that will include the tools you need and only the tools you need. No bloated, hodge-podge, do-it-all bill that no one could possibly thoroughly understand or even read through it all before the vote. Oh, and leave out all the sneaky little things that were put in that huge bill hoping that no one would notice. Also, explain very clearly what it is you are trying to accomplish, don't just push it through like you know better than the American people.

If you act like you are trying to put one over on the American people, than don't be surprised when the American people act like you are trying to put one over on them and rebel against your bill.
