Nothing’s going to change his world

Obama statement on murder of James Foley.

ISIL “speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just god would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day.”

‘Obama’s awful statement about James Foley was even worse than I predicted’

(Uh, Mr. President … “No faith teaches people to massacre innocents.” You might want to read the Koran, except Mohammad’s words would refute your assertion, and we can’t have that, can we. Also, “No just god would stand for what they did …” Same suggested reading.”

(A reporter interviewing Yazidi refugees expressed surprise when Yazidi said their Arab neighbors pointed them out to ISIS/ISIL Muslims. Again, see the Koran’s teachings that even trees and rocks will point out hiding unbelievers (specifically Jews) and tell good Muslims to kill the Jews. If trees and rocks follow Mohammad’s orders, we cannot expect otherwise from good Muslims.)


Warning! Gag reflex!

“The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people. We will be vigilant and we will be relentless. When people harm Americans anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done and we act against ISIL, standing alongside others.”

“They slither wildly as they pass

Navy retreats from attack on Judeo-Christian publications

For the time being, anyway.

“The Daily News, Jacksonville, N.C.|Aug 18, 2014|by Adelina Colbert”

“A recent decision to remove Bibles from lodging facilities aboard Navy bases was reversed on Thursday after public outcry.


“Lt. Chika Onyekanne, a spokesman for the Navy, said the decision to transfer religious materials from the Navy Lodge to the local command religious programs was made by the Navy Exchange Command (NEXCOM) in June, without consultation of senior Navy leadership.”

NEXOM ordered bibles removed after complaints by a “freedom from religion” group. A week ago, the group praised NEXOM’s decision, saying: “FFRF is pleased to learn that NEXCOM has taken seriously its constitutional obligation to remain neutral toward religion as a representative of our federal government. By removing Bibles from Navy-run lodges, the Navy has taken a step to ensure that it is not sending the impermissible message that Christians are favored over guests with other religious beliefs or over those guests with no religion.”

Another reason not to have a smartphone or anything else that keeps track of your location

Police say “location data gathered from the smartphone does not fit with Bravo's account of his movements that evening.”

(The dude was dumb enough telling his phone “Siri, I need to hide my roomate.” Expectation of … what? Privacy? Are you serious?)

Somebody is having fun; pass a law and stop it

New York bans pictures with big cats.

Carole Baskin said “men hoping to use tiger selfies to score a date should consider posing with a domestic feline instead.”

Oh, it’s men doing the pictures. Well, hell, that’s different. Put a stop to it.

“Similar laws are already on the books in states including Mississippi, Arizona and Kansas, where a 17-year-old girl was killed in 2005 while posing with a tiger for her senior photos.”

How many men have been killed while … Doesn’t matter.

When news reporting sucks this bad …

… maybe there’s a reason nobody is smart enough find a broken water main.

“BAY CITY, MI — Bay City and Bay County officials meet at 1 p.m. Monday, Aug. 11, to regroup and strategize efforts in finding a broken water main that has thrown the area into a county-wide water emergency.

“The meeting takes place at Bay County Central Dispatch. The meeting isn't opened to the public, but media will be briefed at its conclusion.

“Going forward, Bay City Clerk Dana Muscott is serving as the media liaison for all news related to the crisis.”

http://www.mlive.com/news/bay-city/index.ssf/2014/08/water_emergency_bay_city_count.html

(“…regroup and strategize”? Did this guy take news reporting at survivor dot com? “The meeting isn’t open to the public.” That is a time for citizenry to fire up torches and sharpen pitchforks and scythes. And what does that last sentence mean? Would Ms. Muscott not be media liaison if things were “going backwards”?)
