Says it all…
Steven Crowder says it all…
You can draw Jesus, sure. Even create a play (like “Jesus Christ Superstar”) about him. You can sell statues of Bhudda or Vishnu. Heck, I’m pretty sure you can even purchase illustrated version L. Ron. Hubbard’s science fiction novels (before they became a religion and all). I’ve even got my Tom-Cruise engraved thetan-testing kit. Highly reccomended.
But the second anyone pencils a little picture of Muhammad, everyone’s sphincter puckers tighter than a starfish on a sun-dial.
And he closes with:
To those saying that I’m an intolerant jerk… hey, I’m not the one forbidding a damn picture. Intolerance, my ass.
Yes, yes… we’ve heard it all before. Now will come the mother of all “mother-of-all” threats. Watch us shake in our freedom.
Seriously… not particularly joyful about OBL’s death but let’s talk some truth about this Islamic culture – it sucks.
They’re always angry about something, whether it’s pork, or cartoons, or the Koran, or women not entirely covered in sheets.
Worst. Culture. Ever.
This is the work of a terrorist…
Their day will come.
Because, if you haven’t been paying attention, this is how they deal with us.
Great article that explains in detail where our nations electricty comes from and who’s responsible for it.
- There exists a monolithic “national electric grid.”
- The “national grid” is vulnerable to a system-wide failure.
- The federal government needs to rebuild the grid.
- Hackers in Russia and China can shut your house off by hacking the smart meter.
- The “smart grid” will “vastly improve efficiency.”
- (Partial Myth) The smart grid will allow more demand to be added to the grid without building more power plants.
I particularly like this quote:
In summary, people should avoid the mistake of applying analogies between the internet and the electrical power grid. They’re two very different things, and there’s precious little magic intelligent pixy dust to be sprinkled over the system to make things dramatically better.
The first half of this article plays some politics, but the second half has some smart solutions to the airline security issue – such as…
- Put real “you’ll be cuffed if you look at me cross-eyed” police on all flights.
- Review all visas from suspect countries and revoke those that don’t pass the smell test. Individuals get a review even if they’ve merely passed thru a suspect country.
- Utilize peer pressure to encourage separation of “good” travelers from the bad. The idea is that if enough legitimate Saudis have to put up with restrictive security measures then they’ll lean on their radical brethren to clean up their act.
- Change the crippling cultural viewpoint prevalent in both the US & UK that passing judgment (profiling) is worse than killing innocent people.
