THIS IS THE COMMUNITY ORGANIZER'S 60TH ROUND SINCE TAKING THE OATH OF OFFICE.
(PhysOrg.com) -- Scientists from the US and UK have discovered four new species of parasitic fungi in the Brazilian rainforests.HOW LONG BEFORE DARPA WEAPONIZES IT AND IT GETS IN THE WRONG HANDS AND LEADS TO A MASS RELEASE, AND THE ZOMBIFICATION OF MOST OF HUMANITY AND THEN ANOTHER 2 DOZEN ZOMBIE MOVIES?!
The fungi attack four distinct species of ants and release mind-altering chemicals that gradually turn the ants into zombies and then kills them.
Mankind may have unleashed the sixth known mass extinction in Earth's history, according to a paper released by the science journal Nature.HERE'S A SLIGHTLY LESS HYSTERICAL VERSION (2010):
Over the past 540 million years, five mega-wipeouts of species have occurred through naturally-induced events.
But the new threat is man-made, inflicted by habitation loss, over-hunting, over-fishing, the spread of germs and viruses and introduced species, and by climate change caused by fossil-fuel greenhouse gases, says the study.
Evidence from fossils suggests that in the "Big Five" extinctions, at least 75 percent of all animal species were destroyed.
Palaeobiologists at the University of California at Berkeley looked at the state of biodiversity today, using the world's mammal species as a barometer.
Until mankind's big expansion some 500 years ago, mammal extinctions were very rare: on average, just two species died out every million years.
But in the last five centuries, at least 80 out of 5,570 mammal species have bitten the dust, providing a clear warning of the peril to biodiversity.
"It looks like modern extinction rates resemble mass extinction rates, even after setting a high bar for defining 'mass extinction," said researcher Anthony Barnosky.
More than two extinct species a year in England, report revealsTHIS IS A WHOLE LOTTA HYSTERICAL ANTI-INDUSTRIAL/ANTI-DEVELOPMENT BS - NOT UNLIKE THE LEFT'S CO2 BS.
The biggest national study of threats to biodiversity has found that nearly 500 species have died out in England - almost all in the last two centuries
More than two animals and plants a year are becoming extinct in England and hundreds more are severely threatened, a report published today reveals.
Natural England, the government's agency responsible for the countryside, said the biggest national study of threats to biodiversity found nearly 500 species that had died out in England, all but a dozen in the last two centuries.
The losses recorded compare with a natural rate of about one extinction every 20 years before humans dominated the planet, but are almost certainly an underestimate because of poor records of any but the "biggest, scariest" creatures before the 1800s.
The high rate at which species are being lost is set to continue. Almost 1,000 other species face "severe" threats from the same problems that drove their relatives extinct – hunting, pollution, development, poor land management, invasive species and, more recently, climate change – says the report, Lost life: England's lost and threatened species. This represents about a quarter of all species in the best-studied groups, including every reptile, dolphin and whale species, two-thirds of amphibians and one-third of butterflies and bumblebees. In total, the report records 55,000 known species in England.
HERE'S AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH: WE ARE DISCOVERING THOUSANDS OF NEW SPECIES EVERY YEAR: FACT (2009): Hundreds of New Species Discovered in Fragile Eastern Himalayas
Decade of Discovery Includes prehistoric gecko, flying frog and world’s second smallest deerMORE (2008):
Washington, DC - Over 350 new species including the world’s second smallest deer, a “flying frog” and a 100 million-year old gecko have been discovered in the Eastern Himalayas...
Marine scientists have discovered hundreds of new animal species on reefs in Australian waters, including brilliant soft corals and tiny crustaceans, according to findings released Thursday.
The creatures were found during expeditions run by the Australian chapter of CReefs, a global census of coral reefs that is one of several projects of the Census of Marine Life, an international effort to catalog all life in the oceans.
"People have been working at these places for a long time and still there are literally hundreds and hundreds of new species that no one has ever collected or described," said Julian Caley, a scientist from the Australian Institute of Marine Science who is helping to lead the research.
Thousands of marine species eke out an existence in the ocean's pitch-black depths by feeding on the snowlike decaying matter that cascades down — even sunken whale bones. Oil and methane also are an energy source for the bottom-dwellers, the report said.
The researchers have found about 5,600 new species on top of the 230,000 known. They hope to add several thousand more by October 2010, when the census will be done.
EXTINCTION IS NATURAL - JUST LIKE CLIMATE CHANGE. BLAMING HUMANS FOR EITHER ISN'T SCIENCE; IT IS LEFT-WING BS.
The New York Times asked Gallup to come up with a statistical composite for the happiest person in America, based on the characteristics that most closely correlated with happiness in 2010. Men, for example, tend to be happier than women, older people are happier than middle-aged people, and so on.YOU CAN'T CHOOSE TO BE CHINESE OR TALL OR RICH. ALL WHO LIVE GET OLDER.
Gallup’s answer: he’s a tall, Asian-American, observant Jew who is at least 65 and married, has children, lives in Hawaii, runs his own business and has a household income of more than $120,000 a year. A few phone calls later and ...
Meet Alvin Wong. He is a 5-foot-10, 69-year-old, Chinese-American, Kosher-observing Jew, who’s married with children and lives in Honolulu. He runs his own health care management business and earns more than $120,000 a year.
Reached by phone at his home on Friday (and referred to The Times by a local synagogue), Mr. Wong said that he was indeed a very happy person.
WE CAN ALL MOVE TO HAWAII - IF WE CAN AFFORD TO AND IF WE CAN FIND A JOB AND AN AFFORDABLE PLACE TO LIVE.
THAT MEANS, OF ALL THE INTRINSIC CHARACTERISTICS THAT CORRELATE WITH BEING HAPPY, THE ONLY ONE YOU CAN CHOOSE IS BEING JEWISH.
AND YOU CAN DO IT ANYWHERE, AND IT DOESN'T COST THAT MUCH.
Fred Grandy, the former "Love Boat" star who served several terms in Congress before landing a gig as a radio host, resigned from his show this week after he was pressured to stop talking so much about radical Islam, his wife, Catherine, told FoxNews.com.Not mentioned here is that WMAL may be ABC-owned. Regardless, this radio station is clearly one allegedly "conservative" company that nobody with common sense needs to do any business with. I hope that FOX will consider hiring the former "Gopher" instead, but most importantly, that they'll know better than to pull the same tactics as WMAL's done.
Catherine Mann-Grandy, who spoke with FoxNews.com extensively about the details of their split with WMAL management, confirmed that the couple's critical commentary on radical Islam was the driving factor behind Grandy's resignation.
"You're not allowed to talk about what's happening in your country," she said. [...]
WMAL, which carries several programs featuring conservative pundits, dumped host Michael Graham several years ago following comments he made about Islam and a subsequent campaign against the station's advertisers by CAIR.
James Lafferty, chariman of the Virginia Anti-Shariah Task Force, accused WMAL of becoming "the first Shariah-compliant radio station in America."
MINITER IN THE NYPOST TODAY:
... the Predator option. It doesn't require a carrier to launch and, if the unmanned drone is shot down, it doesn't start a hostage crisis. It has proven effective over both urban and desert terrain. Its ability to linger over a target for hours is another unique advantage: Its sensors have time to locate Khadafy while minimizing collateral damage.
Yes, there are legal issues: The president might have to suspend an executive order that bars the assassination of foreign heads of state. But he can do so with the stroke of a pen.
Asked his greatest regret as president, Bill Clinton once answered that he wished he'd done more to save lives in Rwanda. Bombing Rwanda's central radio transmitter, from which the murderers coordinated their attacks, would have spared many civilians.
Does Obama want to live with a similar regret, knowing that a single strike -- decapitating the deadly Libyan regime -- could end a tyranny and save lives?

Egypt’s top archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, has warned that the country’s antiquity sites were being looted by criminals amid the country’s political upheaval as he announced he would no longer serve in his ministerial post in the government.
Hawass was quoted in the Friday editions of Cairo’s dailies as saying he would not participate in the new government to be led by Prime Minister-designate Essam Sharaf.
Hawass, the longtime head of Egypt’s antiquities office, was elevated to cabinet-level antiquities minister on Jan.31, when ousted strongman Hosni Mubarak named a new government led by longtime friend Ahmed Shafiq.
Shafiq resigned on Thursday amid calls by protesters for his removal, and Sharaf has been tasked with naming a new government.
Hawass said he was no longer able to protect the country’s antiquities because of what he called the absence of police protection and because he was the victim of a campaign against him by senior officials at his ministry.
THIS MIGHT JUST BE THE BEGINNING OF A MASS "EXODUS" FROM EGYPT OF MODERATES.
A 13-year-old schoolgirl who was missing for more than a week ran away because she was terrified by her mother and stepfather's alleged plot to send her to Pakistan for an arranged marriage, police claimed today.Of the parents? Well I will say that they should both be, and definitely ostracized by the neighborhood they live in, for attempting to sell their daughter into slavery, and the mother has pegged herself as complicit in perversion and deviation from western values. As you'll see when you read the article in full, they raised a lot of ruckus for nothing through their conspiracy of silence unto the police, whom they didn't have the courage to admit their true intentions. They should both be jailed for attempted abuse of an underage girl.
Jessie Bender's parents are accused of keeping their plan secret from detectives after reporting that she had disappeared from their California home.
Their claim that Jessie was abducted by a Facebook predator was proved false after she was discovered hiding with a relative at a hotel about 30 miles from her home in Hesperia, California.
Speaking to MailOnline, Hesperia Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Roxanne Walker said Jessie's stepfather, Mohammad Khan - who is from Pakistan - and her American mother, Melissa, were planning an arranged marriage for the teen.
'There was something to that effect in the works and the daughter was scared.
'She was found with the uncle who was protecting her from the parents,' said Ms Walker.
Detective Gerald Davenport was carrying out interviews today to determine whether the parents will face prosecution.
One line of inquiry is whether there was any intention to involve Jessie in an arranged marriage in Pakistan while she was under age.
Police also slammed the Bender family for 'misleading' them over Jessie's disappearance, wasting time and resources.
Mrs Walker added: ‘Bender family members misled detectives and withheld critical information and as a result delayed the investigation and recovery of their daughter Jessie Bender.'
Jessie's family had reported her missing on February 22.
They told police they feared she had been abducted by a man she met on Facebook.
It later emerged her mother Melissa admitted to police that the family were set to go on a two-month trip to Pakistan on February 23.
[...] Jessie and her three siblings have been taken to child protective custody by county social services, and no arrests have been made.

It's no surprise for anyone who's done long time research on their double-standards. They've let Hamas off the hook, so why should it seem strange when they do the same with Iran?
A threatened boycott of Bank Leumi by settlers was called off on Tuesday after the bank accepted a new financing offer from supermarket mogul Rami Levy for the struggling Nof Zion complex in east Jerusalem.I'm sure we can all hear the sighs of relief. In any case, I'll admit that Bank Leumi's near renege has insulted my intellect, and they're going to have to really do a lot more now if they want to prove they won't sink to dhimmitude.
For the past few months, residents of the Jewish complex in the Jebl Mukaber neighborhood have fought against a business takeover by Palestinian- American businessman Basher Al-Masri, who has said he wants to sell the 300 apartments yet to be built to Arab families.
Digal Investments, whose primary project is Nof Zion, is more than NIS 100 million in debt, of which at least NIS 80 million is to Bank Leumi.
Masri, the businessman behind the planned Palestinian city of Rawabi, had made the highest offer to bail out the company, but in January the bondholders rejected it in favor of a significantly lower offer from Rami Levy and his Australian Jewish partner, Kevin Bermeister, the inventor of Kazaa music downloads.
On Sunday, Bank Leumi informed Digal that their debt repayment plan was not sufficient and it would take the company to court if Digal didn’t find a higher bid that would enable them to repay more of the debt. This opened the door for Masri to resubmit his offer for the company’s debt.
In response, Nof Zion residents, assisted by the Israel Land Fund’s Aryeh King, began to organize protests outside of Bank Leumi branches and threatened that all of the settlers in the West Bank and east Jerusalem would withdraw their funds from Bank Leumi.
Late on Monday, Bank Leumi announced that it had accepted a higher offer from Levy and Bermeister and was no longer considering court action.
“Now everything is an oral agreement, only when it’s done and signed will it be finished,” said King. “It’s not over till it’s over, as they say. We’re waiting until the negotiations are finished.”
Resident Shai Cooperman, who bought a small number of bonds in Digal Investments in order to attend the bondholders’ meetings, as did dozens of other residents, expressed relief that the latest upheaval was over.
“We really hope this time there won’t be other crises and they’ll sign the contract,” he said on Tuesday. “We’re just residents, we didn’t know much about bonds and about companies. We just got into this situation that no one thought it would come to.”
Digal Investments declined to comment. A Bank Leumi spokesman said they do not discuss specific cases to protect their clients’ confidentiality.
Again, I'm glad that Levy has been a big help, and will continue to expand his business ventures.

China has been deploying thousands of soldiers in the strategic Gilgit-Baltistan, a mountainous area in northern Pakistan, and a region historically contested by Pakistan, India and its inhabitants.
Although cooperation between Pakistan and China is not new -- it was China in the 1970s that supported Pakistan's attempts to acquire its nuclear capability -- the deployment of Chinese troops in Pakistan, however, indicates a worrying alliance for the US. The US would do well to monitor these developments before a catastrophic scenario, especially for its troops, takes place.
The presence of the Chinese People's Liberation Army [PLA] in the contested Gilgit-Baltistan region, where a nascent revolt against the Pakistani rule is taking place, constitutes the direct involvement of Beijing in the dispute over Kashmir, making any future understanding between Pakistan and India more difficult, and can only arouse a new and serious rift between New Delhi and Beijing.

Two American airmen were shot dead and another left fighting for his life today after a Kosovo Albanian gunman stormed their bus before opening fire at Germany’s busiest airport.Extra article here. Our prayers must go out to the victims and their families who were attacked by this latest jihad horror, a product of the Muslim entity stemming from Bosnia.
Some media reports said the gunman identified as Arik Uka, 21, shouted out 'Islamic slogans' before opening fire.
He gunned down his first victim as the soldier stood in front of the vehicle at Terminal 2 before turning his weapon on the driver as he sat behind the wheel. [...]
Police arrested the Kosovo man yards from the bus with the automatic weapon he used. He was also armed with a knife.
[...] Eyewitnesses said the man 'infiltrated' himself among the GIs before shouting out radical Islamic slogans and then reaching into a bag for his gun.
Kosovo Interior Minister Bajram Rexhepi said that the gunman had been identified as Arif Uka a Kosovo citizen from the northern town of Mitrovica. He had recently been living in Germany.
VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI has made a sweeping exoneration of the Jewish people for the death of Jesus Christ, tackling one of the most controversial issues in Christianity in a new book.I'm not sure if this is a perfect explanation either, but I suppose it's getting somewhere in making clear that the majority of the Jewish community did not turn him in or condone his death at the hands of the Romans.
In "Jesus of Nazareth-Part II" excerpts released Wednesday, Benedict uses biblical and theological analyses to explain why there was no basis in Scripture that the Jewish people as a whole were responsible for Jesus' death.
Interpretations to the contrary have been used for centuries to justify the persecution of Jews.
While the Vatican has for five decades taught that Jews weren't collectively responsible, Jewish scholars said Wednesday the argument laid out by the German-born pontiff, who has had his share of mishaps with Jews, was significant and would help fight anti-Semitism today.
"There's a natural human tendency to take things for granted, and very often this tends to lead to a lapse in awareness and consciousness" about the risk of anti-Semitism, said Rabbi David Rosen, head of interreligious affairs at the American Jewish Committee and a longtime leader in Vatican-Jewish dialogue.
He noted that the Vatican issued its most authoritative document on the issue in its 1965 Second Vatican Council document "Nostra Aetate," which revolutionized the Catholic Church's relations with Jews by saying Christ's death could not be attributed to Jews as a whole at the time or today.
Benedict comes to the same conclusion, but he explains how with a thorough, Gospel-by-Gospel analysis that leaves little doubt that he deeply and personally believes it to be the case.
Rosen said the pope's words might make a bigger, more lasting mark because the faithful tend to read Scripture and commentary more than church documents, particularly old church documents.
"It may be an obvious thing for Jews to present texts with commentaries, but normally with church magisterium, they present a document," he said. "This is a pedagogical tool that he's providing, so people will be able to interpret the text in keeping with orthodox Vatican teaching."
The book is the second installment to Benedict's 2007 "Jesus of Nazareth," his first book as pope, which offered a very personal meditation on the early years of Christ's life and teachings. This second installment, set to be released March 10, concerns the final part of Christ's life, his death and resurrection.
The Vatican's publishers provided excerpts Wednesday.
In the book, Benedict re-enacts Jesus' final hours, then analyzes each Gospel account to explain why Jews as a whole cannot be blamed for having turned him over. Rather, Benedict concludes, it was the Jewish leadership, the "Temple aristocracy" and a few supporters of the figure Barabbas who were responsible, but not Jews as a whole.
"How could the whole people have been present at this moment to clamor for Jesus' death?" Benedict asks.Benedict's writings could possibly help to defuse the propaganda Gibson's reprehensible film wallowed in. There's still a lot more that the Christian world could do to help mend fences with Jewish society, but I think it's fair to say that Pope Benedict has made a helpful step in the right direction.
He deconstructs one particular account which has the crowd saying, "His blood be on us and on our children" — a phrase frequently cited as evidence of the collective guilt Jews bore and the curse that they carried as a result.
The phrase has been so incendiary that director Mel Gibson was reportedly forced to drop it from the subtitles of his 2004 film "The Passion of the Christ," although it remained in the spoken Aramaic.
But Benedict said Jesus' death wasn't about punishment, but rather salvation. Jesus' blood, he said, "does not cry out for vengeance and punishment, it brings reconciliation. It is not poured out against anyone, it is poured out for many, for all."

A special missile defense system deployed in IDF armored units stopped an anti-tank missile fired by terrorists near the Gaza security fence, the first time the system has been used during an IDF operation.Awesome, and not a moment too soon!
The IDF Spokesperson's office reported that the “Windbreaker” system managed to identify and disable the missile, and that no damage was caused to the tank or its crew. Shortly thereafter, IDF troops identified an armed man in their proximity and opened fire, killing the gunman at the scene.

Evidence outlined in a Pentagon contractor report suggests that financial subversion carried out by unknown parties, such as terrorists or hostile nations, contributed to the 2008 economic crash by covertly using vulnerabilities in the U.S. financial system.
The unclassified 2009 report “Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses” by financial analyst Kevin D. Freeman, a copy of which was obtained by The Washington Times, states that “a three-phased attack was planned and is in the process against the United States economy.”
While economic analysts and a final report from the federal government's Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission blame the crash on such economic factors as high-risk mortgage lending practices and poor federal regulation and supervision, the Pentagon contractor adds a new element: “outside forces,” a factor the commission did not examine.
Suspects include financial enemies in Middle Eastern states, Islamic terrorists, hostile members of the Chinese military, or government and organized crime groups in Russia, Venezuela or Iran. Chinese military officials publicly have suggested using economic warfare against the U.S.

Twenty-six assaults per day in Marseilles.And still these ridiculous religious "leaders" think they can deal with this in normal ways!!
Is there any need to comment on the figures when the figures speak for themselves?
When the Superior Court reopened after the New Year, district attorney Jacques Dallest (photo above) used the occasion to explain the figures in more detail. And this year, they are more painful than before. They paint the portrait of a city that is suffering from crime: a 19% increase in armed robberies over 2009. With, as the attorney said, "assaults" executed "only for lucre" rising at a frightening rate.
Three hundred crimes, major and minor, take place each day within the precinct (Marseilles-Aubagne-La Ciotat) of the Superior Court.
"Marseilles is a minefield of criminal infractions," attorney Dallest declared in summary.On November 11, 2010 a police raid turned up six weapons, including a replica of an M16 and a replica of an AK47.
Ammunition, bullet-proof vests and three stolen motorcycles were also found.Finally, according to the archbishop of Marseilles Georges Pontier, some Catholic schools implanted in "working class neighborhoods" have a student body of up to 80% Muslims!
For the archbishop, training through inter-religious dialogue will permit these questions to be answered: "How to announce the Gospel? How to accept Muslim holidays? What can we accept or not accept?"
According to archbishop Georges Pontier, "We must not run from these questions. Even if the subject is delicate and marks a juncture of the religious dimension and identitarian issues.
"Note: If 80% of the classes are Muslim there aren't many questions left to run from, except perhaps how to justify leaving the other twenty percent in this cultural cloaca.
JERUSALEM: Nearly nine years after the Israeli assassination of a Hamas leader in Gaza killed at least 13 civilians and led to international condemnation, a government-appointed panel has found the consequences ''did not stem from disregard or indifference to human lives''.Naturally, Hamas has condemned these findings, and will not accept any blame on their side, when as it so happens, it's their fault for getting civilians on their side blasted. They've practically used them as human shields and see no value in them except propaganda purposes to undermine Israel. And that's why Hamas has no legitimacy. Speaking of which, just look at some of this data on how they've been enforcing sharia and anti-semitic indoctrination. And then they have the sheer gall to accuse Israel of anything.
The three-member panel, headed by a retired Israeli Supreme Court justice, found on Sunday that the collateral damage was ''disproportionate''. But it said its examination of the operation according to Israeli and international law ''unequivocally'' ruled out a criminal offence.
It attributed the deadly results of the operation to ''incorrect assessments and mistaken judgment based on an intelligence failure in the collection and transfer of information'' among the different agencies involved.
NYTIMES: Abuse Often Follows Afghans to America:
In Afghanistan, a decade after the overthrow of the Taliban and the rise of an influential women’s rights movement, the violent subjugation of women remains broadly accepted. In recent weeks, the Afghan government has sharply criticized the country’s shelters for battered women and moved to take control of them.
But much more quietly, a culture of domestic violence — not only by husbands but also by husbands’ families — has followed Afghan immigrants to destinations like New York, where women’s advocates say they are now discovering just how widespread the problem is.
THE CULTURE IS ISLAM: WHERE THERE IS ISLAM THERE IS ISLAMO-MISOGYNY.
TO END IT ONE MUST EITHER ERADICATE ISLAM, OR MAKE ALL OF ITS PRACTITIONERS APOSTATES.
A HOME THAT TEACHES ITS BOYS THAT ABUSE AGAINST WIVES AND MOTHERS AND SISTERS IS OKAY IS OF COURSE SIMULTANEOUSLY TEACHING THAT GENOCIDE AGAINST INFIDELS IS OKAY.

AMR MOUSSA THROWS HIS KEFFIYAH INTO THE RING: STAUNCH CRITIC OF ISRAEL LIKELY TO BECOME NEXT EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT
JPOST/AP: Arab League boss Moussa to run for Egypt president
Arab League chief Amr Moussa said he will run in this year's presidential elections in Egypt.THE FIRST PHASE OF RE-STABILIZATION IN THE MIDDLE EAST WILL BE BAD FOR ISRAEL AND THE WEST AS THE NEW LEADERS PANDER FOR SUPPORT (BY ATTACKING THE USA AND ISRAEL) AND APPEASE THE JIHADISTS.
Moussa's comments Sunday came a day after a constitutional reform panel appointed by Egypt's military rulers recommended far-reaching reforms that relaxed eligibility rules for who qualifies to run for president.
The changes, if adopted in a national referendum, would open Egypt's presidential elections to competition and impose a two-term limit on future presidents — a dramatic shift from a system that allowed ousted President Hosni Mubarak to rule for three decades.
Moussa enjoys wide popularity in Egypt, largely because of his scathing criticism of Israel, a country seen by most Egyptians as an enemy despite the 1979 peace treaty between the two neighbors.
Previously, Moussa was Egyptian foreign minister and before that a veteran diplomat for Cairo.
THE SECOND PHASE - WHEN THE JIHADISTS TAKEOVER, AS THEY DID IN IRAN - WILL BE EVEN WORSE.
It was 33 degrees here when I got up at 6:00 AM this morning.
I've seen it even colder (in the high-20's) within the past year.
But, last night, Studio City (home to many Movie Stars, Rock Stars, Movie Producers and Porn Stars) got snow.
And, I'm not talking about cocaine.
From the LA Times:
Burbank, Glendale and Studio City were some of the areas that saw flakes of soft hail or snow pellets, according to weather reports. The precipitation was part of an unusual weather system that flowed south from Canada and dropped snow and rain across much of the state.
The snow level in L.A. County as of Saturday evening was about 1,700 feet, according to the National Weather Service. Earlier reports had forecast snow as low as 1,000 feet.
"It just started coming down as hail, and then there was this giant sheet of snow; it was awesome" said Matthew Currie Holmes, an actor from Burbank.I built a snowman in the likeness of Al Gore in my yard. But, before I could snap a picture, he spontaneously combusted.
Holmes said the precipitation quickly formed a white layer over his lawn and car. Shortly after, his neighbors launched into a snowball fight outside his home, he said.

A former Libyan official says Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi blackmailed Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi into engineering Megrahi’s release from a Scottish prison by threatening to reveal that the dictator ordered the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing, according to The Telegraph.2 - LIBYA'S JUSTICE MINISTER SAYS HE HAD PROOF THAT GADDAFI ORDERED THE LOCKERBIE BOMBING.
FOR THIS ACT OF TERROR AND MASS MURDER, OBAMA, HILLARY, GATES AND HOLDER SHOULD CONFER WITH REID, MCCONNELL, BEOHNER AND PELOSI, AND THEN ORDER A MISSILE ATTACK DIRECTLY AGAINST GADDAFI.
THIS WOULD BRING JUSTICE FOR THE USA - AND NOW THE LIBYAN PEOPLE TOO.
THERE IS NO DOWNSIDE.
IF OBAMA WAS A REALLY PATRIOT WITH BALLS HE'D DO IT.
BASED ON THEIR ACTIONS AS POTUS, FDR, TRUMAN AND CLINTON WOULD'VE DONE IT. EVEN HILLARY - HAD HER NOMINATION NOT BEEN STOLEN BY OBAMA IN THE CAUCUSES AND HAD SHE BEEN ELECTED - WOULD DO IT.
OBAMA PROBABLY WON'T.
UN OPPOSES ISRAELI APARTMENT CONSTRUCTION MORE THAN ARAB WAR CRIMES AGAINST ARABS: THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS SCOOPS HOT AIR & THE HUDSON INSITUTE BY A DAY
TAB YESTERDAY:K.A. Toameh
It took the UN Security Council more than a week to hold a closed-door meeting and issue a tempered statement condemning the violence in Libya and calling for its immediate end and for those responsible to be held accountable.
This is the same Security Council that one week earlier held a special and open session to condemn construction in Jewish settlements in the West Bank.
Fourteen out of fifteen members of the council voted in support of the anti-settlement resolution, which was vetoed by the US…The US Administration and the rest of the international community have once again sent a message ...
I THINK THAT MAYBE BY THE END OF NEXT WEEK THEY WILL AGREE ON WORDING FOR A VERY HARSHLY WORDED LETTER.REGULAR READERS OF TAB KNOW WE SCOOP THE BIGGIES ON LINKS AND COMMENTARY ALL THE TIME. SPREAD THE WORD.
HERE'S HOW THEY DEALT WITH "NOKO KIM":
AT THE VERY LEAST, WE SHOULD BE ARMING LIBYAN THE REBELS.
AT BEST, OBAMA MERELY DITHERS. IT'S HIS MOST FREQUENT TACTIC.
IN HIS FIRST 2 YEARS IN OFFICE, OBAMA SAID FAR HARSHER THINGS ABOUT NETANYAHU AND ISRAELI APARTMENT CONSTRUCTION THAN QADDAFI.
IT SEEMS OBAMA CUTS SLACK FOR ALL THE ANTI-AMERICAN TYRANTS AND GIVES OUR TRADITIONAL ALLIES THE COLD SHOULDER AT BEST.
BTW: THIS PROVES THE FACT THAT OBAMA AND THE UN MORE MORE ANTI-ISRAEL THAN THEY ARE PRO-ANYTHING ELSE. OR ANTI-ANYTHING ELSE, FOR THAT MATTER.
OBAMA AND THE UN ARE NOT MERELY USELESS AND INCOMPETENT: THEY ACTIVELY AID THE ENEMY AND HURT OUR REAL ALLIES AND REAL INTERESTS.
WE NEED TO GET RID OF BOTH IN 2012!
AND THE JOIN THE TEA PARTY.
At least two people were reported killed in clashes between security forces and anti-government protesters in the city of Sohar, Oman on Sunday.
Witnesses told Reuters that police fired rubber bullets and tear gas into a crowd of stone-throwing protesters who were demanding political reforms in the strategic Gulf country.
THE UNREST ALL OVER THER MUSLIM/ARAB WORLD... WELL, ER, UM... THEY THINK THEY WANT POLITICAL REFORM, BUT WHAT THEY REALLY NEED IS TO ABANDON ISLAM AND THEN COME JOIN US IN THE 21ST CENTURY!
YUP: THEY THINK THEY'RE ENSLAVED BY WICKED TYRANNICAL REGIMES, BUT WHAT'S REALLY ENSLAVING THEM IS THEIR IDEOLOGY.
TURKEY'S SHORT 70 YEAR EFFORT PROVES THAT THEY CAN'T BECOME MORE PLURALISTIC, SECULAR OR DEMOCRATIC AS LONG AS THEY'RE MUSLIM.
YOU CANNOT RAISE CHILDREN IN THE MISOGYNISTIC AND GENOCIDAL 7TH CENTURY AND EXPECT THEM TO BE SWELL CITIZENS OF THE 21ST.
MALMO, Sweden — Nick Nilsson, 46, decided to vote for Sweden’s far-right party last fall because of a growing sense that his country had gone too far in letting so many immigrants settle here.
A truck driver, Mr. Nilsson lives a half mile from the Rosengard section of this city, where dreary apartment buildings are jammed with refugees from virtually all the world’s recent conflicts: Iranians, Bosnians, Palestinians, Somalis, Iraqis.
“No one has a job over there,” Mr. Nilsson said recently. “They are shooting at each other. There are drugs. They burn cars. Enough is enough.”
For a time, Sweden seemed immune to the kind of anti-immigrant sentiment blossoming elsewhere on the European continent.
Its generous welfare and asylum policies have allowed hundreds of thousands of refugees to settle here, many in recent years from Muslim countries.
Nearly a quarter of Sweden’s population is now foreign born or has a foreign-born parent.
But increasingly, Swedes are questioning these policies. Last fall, the far-right party — campaigning largely on an anti-immigration theme — won 6 percent of the vote and, for the first time, enough support to be seated in the Swedish Parliament.
Six months later, many Swedes are still in shock. The country — proud of its reputation for tolerance — can no longer say it stands apart from the growing anti-immigrant sentiment that has changed European parliaments elsewhere, leading to the banning of burqas in France and minarets in Switzerland.
In Malmo, a rapidly gentrifying port city in Sweden’s south, support for the far-right Sweden Democrats was particularly strong, about 10 percent of the vote. It is a place where tensions over immigration are on full display.
The city’s mayor, Ilmar Reepalu, a Social Democrat, ran his hands over a city map in his office, pointing out working-class neighborhoods like Mr. Nilsson’s that voted heavily for the Sweden Democrats, as might be expected, he said. But he could point to wealthier neighborhoods, too, that produced support for the far right as never before.
“We must dig deeper to understand that,” he said quietly.
... In the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, Sweden, which had more manufacturing jobs than citizens to fill them, invited immigrants in. Most came from other European countries. They worked and paid taxes. Those were good years for Malmo, which had shipyards and a textile industry.
When those jobs disappeared, Sweden stopped the flow of immigrant labor, but not the flow of refugees, many of whom clustered in Malmo and other former industrial centers. Jobs were still scarce, but housing was available, apartments built long ago for laborers.
In some of those apartment blocks, the unemployment rate among immigrants stands at 80 percent. Still, their children need schooling, and they have elderly parents who need health care. Some are damaged by the violence they have lived through. They suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and drug and alcohol addictions.
Prof. Jan Ekberg, an economist at Linnaeus University, questions the policies that allowed so many refugees to settle far from jobs. “They are depending on the public sector now as never before,” he said. “That was a policy mistake.”
Rosengard hardly has the look of a troubled ghetto. Lawns and playgrounds abound. But the area does not look like traditional Sweden, either. Satellite dishes hang from every balcony. The bakery sells Middle Eastern confections. Al Jazeera plays on the televisions. And young men huddle on street corners casually bragging about doing battle with the police.
A few years ago, the fire and ambulance brigades would not even enter Rosengard without a police escort. Youths there threw rocks and set cars on fire. Police officials say things are much better now. Fires were down 40 percent last year compared with 2009. But last month, two police vehicles parked at the station were set on fire with small homemade explosives.
All this does not sit well with Mr. Nilsson and his wife, Ann-Christine, 51, who say that immigrants are not only failing to pay their way, but that they also are refusing to learn the ways of their host country.
“They do not respect Swedish people,” Mrs. Nilsson said. “As long as they learn the language and behave like Swedes, they are welcome. But they do not. Immigration as it is now needs to stop.”
THE PROBLEM IS THE LEFT:
LEFTISTS ARE IN DENIAL ABOUT IMMIGRATION, ISLAMIZATION, AND THE BANKRUPTCY OF THEIR OWN IDEOLOGY.
AS LONG AS THEY DENY THESE 3 THINGS PLACES LIKE SWEDEN ARE UNDER THREAT.
AND THAT MEANS ALL OF EUROPE.
THE LEFT IS BEGINNING TO SEE THE THREAT - BUT ONLY BECAUSE THEIR POLITICAL POWER IS BEING THREATENED.
THAT'S WHY, EVEN HERE IN AMERICA, WE NEED A MORE ROBUST ANTI-ISLAMIZATION AND ANTI-ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION EFFORT: TO PROTECT OUR WAY OF LIFE FROM ISLAMIZATION AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRATON.
AND ANOTHER THING:
THIS AIN'T ABOUT RACE; IT'S ABOUT CULTURE.
I AM NOT A CULTURAL RELATIVIST.
I WANT TO PROTECT AND MAINTAIN WESTERN CULTURE IN THE WEST AND AMERICAN CULTURE IN AMERICA.
THIS CANNOT MAKE ME A RACIST.
ANYONE WHO SAYS THAT IS A LYING LEFTIST PIECE OF CRAP.
