Nancy Pelosi Mistakes Charity Event for Fundraiser

Nancy Pelosi stumbled upon a charity event which featured the ice bucket challenge.  She actually thought it a Democratic fund raiser.  Bad mistake.

Old Farmer's Almanac Predicts Refriger-Nation Winter

When a farmer makes plans for next year’s crops, he doesn’t consult Al Gore or a climatologist.  Hysteria, hot air and hockey stick graphs will not suffice.  What he needs is a time tested prognosticator that has an accuracy rate scientist like James Hanson of NASA is envious of.  God knows he and his ilk have been wrong so often, it’s become an embarrassment. What this steward of the land consults is the Old Farmer’s Almanac.

And what kind of winter are we going to have?  According to Editor Janice Stillman, it will be a “refriger-nation.”  All I have to say is thank God for global warming.  Otherwise, we’d be in an ice age.

And what factors contribute to The Old Farmer’s Almanac’s success?

The almanac, which has about an 80 percent success rate in its forecasts, employs modern technology but still uses the "secret formula" that founder Robert Thomas devised in 1792. By combining the study of sunspots, prevailing weather patterns and basic meteorology, the almanac's weather staff comes up with a long-range forecast. The temperature deviations are based on 30-year averages compiled by government forecasters.

Sunspots?  Are they trying to tell us the sun has something to do with the earth’s temperature?  Somebody needs to inform these man-made global warming fanatics.


Student Arrested & Suspended for "Shooting a Dinosaur"

 Just when you think you’ve heard it all, another libtard shakes the cage of stupidity.  Alex Stone, a 16 year old student, was arrested and suspended for writing a short story about killing a dinosaur with a gun.  I kid you not. 

Stone said in his "status" he wrote a fictional story that involved the words "gun" and "take care of business."
"I killed my neighbor's pet dinosaur, and, then, in the next status I said I bought the gun to take care of the business," Stone said.
Stone says his statements were taken completely out of context.
"I could understand if they made him re-write it because he did have "gun" in it. But a pet dinosaur?" said Alex's mother Karen Gray."I mean first of all, we don't have dinosaurs anymore. Second of all, he's not even old enough to buy a gun."
Investigators say the teacher contacted school officials after seeing the message containing the words "gun" and "take care of business," and police were then notified on Tuesday

I believe the teacher should be suspended for not exercising common sense.  Do we really need people like that around children?


Census Bureau: 35.4% Americans on Federal Welfare reported the following disturbing statistic:

109,631,000 Americans lived in households that received benefits from one or more federally funded "means-tested programs" -- also known as welfare -- as of the fourth quarter of 2012, according to data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau.

The Census Bureau has not yet reported how many were on welfare in 2013 or the first two quarters of 2014.

But the 109,631,000 living in households taking federal welfare benefits as of the end of 2012, according to the Census Bureau, equaled 35.4 percent of all 309,467,000 people living in the United States at that time.

That doesn’t count the “non-means-tested programs” or in other words entitlement programs.

North Carolina Teachers Have it Better Than They Think

If you live in North Carolina, chances are you’ve heard the hue and cry about how impoverished our teachers are.  According to every libtard organization that infest this state, educators are practically spit on and kicked around.  Here is a local rag outlining their abuse.

Pay for the teachers who educate the state's roughly 1.5 million public school students ranks 46th in the country, above only Mississippi and West Virginia among 12 Southeastern states, the report said. Five years ago, North Carolina teacher salaries were in the middle of the state rankings.

One out of nine teachers earn the lowest base salary of $30,800 because there are few meaningful raises until the fifth year on the job, the report said. The North Carolina average teacher salary of $45,933 last year was nearly $10,000 less than the national average, according to the National Education Association.

That sounds pretty bad doesn’t it?  But it’s not, considering the median income for a family of four in North Carolina is $45,150.  So actually, experienced teachers make little more than the average Tar Heel family.  And as far as base salary, hey, everyone has to learn their trade.

As for that 46th ranking in the country, the median household income in the U.S. is $51,371.  Now let’s take a look at the map below.  Here is what $100 is worth in each state.  It seems to me teachers in North Carolina are squawking about nothing.  But what do you expect from a democratic constituency. 

Obama, Once Again, Defends Islam

Is Barack Obama an Islamic apologist?  He has a history of it, and the above tweet speaks volumes.  ISIS or ISIL is following the vision Muhammad laid out for his apostles.  And yes, Islam does teach people to massacre.  Here is an excerpt from one of my earlier blog post.

Abu Bakr organized the invasion of Syria [Syro-Palestine] which Muhammad had already envisaged. He gathered tribes from the Hijaz, Najd, and Yemen and advised Abu Ubayda, in charge of operations in the Golan, to plunder the countryside, but due to a lack of adequate weaponry, to refrain from attacking towns. Consequently, the whole Gaza region up to Cesara was sacked and devastated in the campaign of 634. Four thousand Jewish, Christian, and Samaritan peasants who defended their land were massacred. The villages of the Negev were pillaged by Amr b. al-As, while the Arabs overran the countryside, cut communications, and made road perilous. Towns such as Jerusalem, Gaza, Jaffa, Cesarea, Nablus, and Beth Shean were isolated and closed their gates. In his sermon on Christmas day 634, the patriarch of Jerusalem, Sophronius, lamented over the impossibility of going on pilgrimage to Bethlehem, as was the custom because the Christians were being forcibly kept in Jerusalem: “not detained by tangible bonds, but chained and nailed by fear of the Saracens,” whose “savage, barbarous and bloody sword” kept them locked up in town….Sophronius, in his sermon on the Day of the Epiphany 636, bewailed the destruction of the churches and monasteries, the sacked towns, the fields laid waste, the villages burned down by the nomads who were overrunning the country. In a letter the same year to Sergius, the patriarch of Constantinople, he mentions the ravages wrought by the Arabs. Thousands of people perished in 639, victims of the famine and plague that resulted from these destructions.

The countryside [in Syro-Palestine, Iraq, Persia, and Armenia] suffered constant razzias, while those who escaped the sword swelled the contingents of enslaved women and children, shared out among the soldiers after the deduction of the fifth [share of the “booty”] reserved for the caliph.

According to [the Muslim chronicler] Baladhuri (d. 892 C.E.), 40,000 Jews lived in Caesarea alone at the Arab conquest, after which all trace of them is lost.

Islam is a supremist ideology.  If ISIS believes another Muslim isn’t following the dictates of their prophet, they’ll make damn sure he does, or else.
