An area twice the size of Alaska was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice after the arctic ice cap has expanded for the second year in a row.
Global warming stopped 17 years ago. Climate change fanatics simply refuse to face the fact that we don’t understand the multi-factoral nature of climate, and therefore their predictions of disaster are based on a foundation of faulty science.
Conservatives are not anti-science. We simply do not endorse expensive “solutions” for problems we do not understand. One must understand causes before one can adequately propose solutions. And climate is a tough nut to crack.
"Workplace violence." That’s how the Obama administration defines the Ft. Hood shooting. Forget the fact that shooter Nidal Hassan openly claims he murdered his victims in the name of Allah and that he now wants to join a recognized terrorist organization.
Poor Richard asks: “Why is this lowlife allowed to send letters to terrorist groups from inside prison?”
Probably because this administration has no coherent strategy to deal with ISIS, or Islamic terrorists in general.
This is just ridiculous on so many levels. I don’t eat pork or shellfish, but I am not in the least offended by advertisements for shrimp, lobster, or pork loins. Besides, bacon isn’t always pork. I have some beef bacon in my freezer right now.
Islam does not tolerate mere tolerance. They mean to dominate.
A sign on a lamp post at the bottom of the Winooski Circle displayed the words “Yield Sneakers Bacon” until Friday morning. The bistro owners took it down.
It got there as part of “Operation Bloom.”
A city program put it in place to keep its flower beds beautiful. If businesses do some gardening they can post an advertisement where they do it, but the word “bacon” on the Sneakers Bistro sign started a discussion about diversity on the Winooski Front Porch Forum.
It started with a post from one woman who wrote that the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork. She said as a Muslim she is personally offended by it.
The owners of Sneakers spoke to WPTZ. They say they’ve reached out to the individual who made the post and proactively took the sign down. They also say they regret any harm caused by the sign, and that their goal was never to cause stress or bad feelings.
The Department of Justice has become a locus of injustice. Letting crooks go free (particularly the frauds and cheats in the banking sector), while vigorously pursuing personal agendas and persecuting political enemies, Holder’s “justice” department is a symptom of everything wrong with the current executive branch.
In a shocking case of “grotesque” misconduct by federal prosecutors, a federal judge in Louisiana has ordered a new trial for five New Orleans police officers convicted for a shooting on the Danziger Bridge on September 4, 2005 — in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina — and for a subsequent cover-up. This is another black eye for the Holder Justice Department that the media have barely covered. Participating in the misconduct that the judge said had created an “online 21st-century carnival atmosphere” was Karla Dobinski, a lawyer in the Criminal Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department and the former deputy chief of the section. The reversal of the convictions is what Judge Kurt Engelhardt calls a “bitter pill” for Hurricane Katrina survivors, but his investigation of the matter provides an intensive inside look at the unprofessionalism of some of the lawyers at the Holder Justice Department, and also at the department’s attempts to obscure its misdeeds.
Summing up: “Judge Engelhardt’s indictment of the Justice Department is devastating. He remains troubled by the fact that ‘much is still not known about the nature and extent of’ what the government did in this prosecution. The judge had ‘unfortunately seen the government omit pertinent facts, conceal material information, threaten but not charge at least three witnesses the defense identified, … and attempt to mitigate internet conduct that any reasonably responsible prosecutor would know is forbidden.’ In fact, the judge spends ten pages of his order just going through the rules violated by DOJ personnel — rules contained in federal regulations and in the U.S. Attorneys’ Manual, the local rules of the Louisiana federal district court, and the Rules of Professional Conduct for lawyers in Louisiana.”
We will never know all of the creepy crawlies hiding under the rock of the current DOJ, but a judge just lifted the rock a bit, and what we can see is appalling.
