Today’s alarming news.

Scientists Explain Alarming Loss of Mental Function in Southern California, Northern California Mental Affliction Remains a Mystery

University of Southern California researchers have announced a study today that they claim shows a direct link between widespread brain damage and vehicular air pollution.

Governor Brown was extremely concerned about the news.

“They say that this isn’t just a matter of damage to your lungs but also to your mind.  If this is a real phenomenon it could be affecting judgment in daily life and just as importantly, if not more, at the polling stations… well, it means that we need to act fast to evaluate whether this is a very bad thing or somewhat beneficial,” said California Governor Jerry Brown, taking a deep breath and giving an emphatic nod.

There is concern that it could be affecting the young.   Earth Liberation Front spokesman Dweezil Coypu said that eliminating vehicles is a valid option if it can save just  [more…]

Marine Sgt. Takes Sniper Round To The Head; Smokes A Cigarette 15 Minutes Later.

“Manning the top of a compound south of Sangin, Afghanistan, Sgt. Paul “Headshot” Boothroyd III took a sniper round to the head. He landed face down onto the muddy roof with a thud.

Suck on that, enemy insurgent sniper bastards.

Good on yer, Sgt. Boothroyd – glad you are ok.  And kudos for one of the most awesome photos ever.

I’m pretty sure I missed something here.  Something crucial.

The NOPD is investigating the fatal shooting of man they describe as an “armed home intruder.”

[snip]

According to investigators, 21-year-old Melvin Plummer of Marrero entered a house occupied by a 30-year-old woman and her three children and brandished a handgun.  The woman, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled a gun and shot Plummer multiple times.

E-M-S paramedics transported the suspect to a hospital where he later died.  The name of the man who was shot has not been released.

Police say the investigation is ongoing, but for now they are classifying the shooting as “justifiable.”

Chalk one up for the CCW folks.  Please notice that she didn’t go out and shoot a bunch of nice people;  The woman was a legal gun owner.)

By the way, I wouldn’t begin to know how to choose fashion-conscious stuff for the wife.

Obama Practices What He Preaches

As is his customary style, Obama sought to maintain a balanced center, imploring Democrats and Republicans alike to be reasonable and fair-minded in the budget process.

President Obama said to the Republicans, “You want everybody to act like adults, quit playing games and realize it is not my way or the highway.”

Responding to Obama’s charisma and strong leadership style, Boehner and Reid pledged renewed efforts to completely rework the budget in order to find a solution acceptable to everyone.

Wow.  I guess the Health Care Reform was just an isolated incident.  No, not really.

The Discovery Channel Loon’s manifesto was put up on TMZ tonight – a one James Lee.

If you take his body of writing in the manifesto in one fell swoop it reads like he was channeling Al Gore.   But in parts, dribs, and drabs, it sounds like a coffee-and-dessert social at an AGW conference if you were to listen carefully to the bunny-hugging, tree-hugging, duck-squeezing, slackster, in-a-haze coffee-house misanthropes.

Find solutions for Global Warming, Automotive pollution, International Trade, factory pollution, and the whole blasted human economy. Find ways so that people don’t build more housing pollution which destroys the environment to make way for more human filth! Find solutions so that people stop breeding as well as stopping using Oil in order to REVERSE Global warming and the destruction of the planet!

See?  Doesn’t that sound like the Reverend Righteous Al?

Saving the environment and the remaning species diversity of the planet is now your mindset. Nothing is more important than saving them. The Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels.

Really?

For every human born, ACRES of wildlife forests must be turned into farmland in order to feed that new addition over the course of 60 to 100 YEARS of that new human’s lifespan! THIS IS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FOREST CREATURES!!!! All human procreation and farming must cease!
It is the responsiblity of everyone to preserve the planet they live on by not breeding any more children who will continue their filthy practices. Children represent FUTURE catastrophic pollution whereas their parents are current pollution. NO MORE BABIES! Population growth is a real crisis. Even one child born in the US will use 30 to a thousand times more resources than a Third World child. It’s like a couple are having 30

Oh.  Oh dear.

Also, war must be halted. Not because it’s morally wrong, but because of the catastrophic environmental damage modern weapons cause to other creatures. FIND SOLUTIONS JUST LIKE THE BOOK SAYS!
Humans are supposed to be inventive. INVENT, DAMN YOU!!

And here you are supposed to picture a room full of scientists flinging themselves into chairs with smoking slide-rules furiously inventing (something) as if you flipped a light switch.

Cruel Wife says “INVENT, DAMN YOU!  You’re the inventive one in the family, so INVENT, DAMN YOU!”

M’kay… I’ll get right on that.

Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is. That, and all its disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed. Broadcast this message until the pollution in the planet is reversed and the human population goes down! This is your obligation. If you think it isn’t, then get hell off the planet! Breathe Oil! It is the moral obligation of everyone living otherwise what good are they??

This just sounds like so much bullsh*t.

Pfc. Naser Abdo, a 20-year-old infantryman assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Ky., filed for conscientious objector status in June because his faith and the military simply don’t mix, he told FoxNews.com. The Army has deferred his scheduled deployment to Afghanistan.

Islam is a peaceful religion, it’s not a religion of warfare,” Abdo said. “And it’s not a religion of terror. As a Muslim, we stand against injustice, we stand against discrimination, and I feel it’s my duty as an individual to do this.”

His religion is weak?  No, he’s weak.  He KNEW what he signed up for before, when he was more faithful to God – he SAYS so, right here.

I was more faithful to God before I joined the military and that’s what kind of stirred me,” he said. Military duties have really consumed every part of my day and did not allow me time to involve myself with the Islamic community to maintain what duties I felt that I owed God. This is really what made me come to the conclusion that I’m not ready to die….

Well, only part of that last paragraph was true.  If he was MORE FAITHFUL before he joined the military AND Islam is a peaceful religion, not of warfare, then how the hell could he NOT have been an objector before even joining up, thus precluding him from serving?

“I knew that if I went to Afghanistan and, God forbid, something were to happen, that my faith was so weak that I wouldn’t be admitted into heaven….

“The conclusion I came to is that I can’t participate in the U.S. military, including any war it’s involved in or any war it will be involved in in the future,” he said.

No, sorry, this isn’t about being a conscientious objector.
