Couple gets married, moves from Michigan To California and: “A California man says he realized he was gay more than 20 years into his marriage, then he realized he was a she.” And then: “Yes, Cat told her husband she’d recently realized she was a lesbian. “And I remember saying, “Oh my god, get […]
Oracle team USA won the final race by 44 seconds to complete an 8 race winning streak. Its being called the greatest comeback in America’s Cup history.
The America’s Cup comes down to a final race tomorrow. New Zealand was 8 to 1, but Oracle Team USA (with a largely Kiwi crew) has come back winning 7 straight races. Tomorrow at 4:00 it will be settled in a single, winner take all race. Maybe I’m cynical, but I can’t help but wonder […]
Thinking about this dude, I began to wonder if its possible to not exist, statistically speaking. Also, I haven’t posted in a while. So, Richie Parker is black which is about 12% of the population. He’s an engineer about 5% of the total workforce, black engineers make up about 6% of the profession. He works […]
Libertarians, like all egalitarians, say they view people as “individuals”. This isn’t true. Egalitarians actually view people as generic and interchangeable units, this denies any individuality by denying any individual variation. We are not all created equal in the sense that we all have equal abilities. I am as likely to become a theoretical physicist […]
Via a comment at Free NC Citizens for Self Government, a small government activist group, has launched the Convention of States Project to call for a convention under Article V of the US Constitution. The goal is to convene a convention to amend the Constitution in such a way as to curb federal over reach. […]
H/T Off Grid Survival Apparently, NERC is proposing a large scale gaming of power grid security. I thought it was interesting enought to post in light of this previous post.
Both Free NC and Sharia Unveiled have already posted this, as others have also I’m sure, but here it is again: Frontpage Mag When thousands of Muslims become refugees, then you can’t get the media to shut up about it for weeks. Thousands of Muslim migrants invading Burma became “refugees” and the media has spent […]
VIA Free NC Breaker 1 9 calling on all Trucker to shut America down for three days October 11-13. The American people are bleeding out with no relief in sight, It is time to change the NEWS. Let us show our elected officials that we are 100% fed up with corruption and the blatant disregard […]
He was the single most influential player in the game. 1 goal and three assists is usually a pretty good game, but maybe not for Swansea’s Jonjo Shelvey, since 2 of those assists were for the other team. Barclay’s Premier League is the top tier in English soccer, for those who don’t know, and Shelvey […]
Its often said that people are individuals, but statistics would seem to refute that.
I did not know this happened on 9/11, i probably should have. “The Battle of Vienna took place on 11 and 12 September 1683 after Vienna had been besieged by the Ottoman Empire for two months. It was a battle of the Holy Roman Empire in league with the Polish- Lithuanian Commonwealth (Holy League) versus […]
Pax Dickenson If you laugh at how stupid internet commenters are but you also believe in democracy, the joke’s on you.
I just cought the end of an America’s Cup race. The boats crossed the line at 40 knots! Apparently, they go FASTER THAN THE WIND! How can a boat go faster than the wind? They use adjustable keels that function as st of a “water sail”. So, in the same way you set a sail […]
Carolina Plott Hound McCrory will not enforce law to drug test welfare recipients DC denies bike rally permit for 9/11, they plan to ride anyway NC National Guard to recognise gay “marriages”
Recently, a Russian gay activist was barred from participating in some gay conference and had a hissy fit in which he blamed the “Jewish Mafia”. Vox Day made a funny observation about it. “Let me see if I have this straight. It is now observably safer for an activist to criticize Vladimir Putin and the […]
A few days ago I posted this article about Randlemn HS receiving a warning from the ACLU about praying before football games. They did it anyway. Well, the ACLU has come back and, while nobody was fired, the prayer didn’t happen last Friday. At least not over the PA. My Fox 8 RANDLEMAN, N.C. — […]
The end of an epoch has come to the Russian army. After three hundred years, portyanki are being replaced by socks. Russiapedia Portyanki (singular – portyanka) are two pieces of cloth used by the soldiers in the Soviet and Russian Army instead of socks. The word sprang up from the Portuguese word which means “a […]
Some unorganised thoughts, jogged loose by Justin at AP, on Sola Scriptura. Sola Scriptura-by scripture alone. In practice, the plain meaning of scripture is, apparently not that plain. I say this because there are over 30,000 different Protestant denominations. It seems, for some people, sola scriptura can supplant the Holy Spirit as final authority. Consider […]
I missed this. WRAL Raleigh, N.C. — Although they won’t be issued until next March, vouchers that will allow hundreds of students from low-income families to attend private schools across North Carolina already have officials at many schools eagerly anticipating an influx of students. State lawmakers set aside $10 million in the budget for so-called […]
This is just some thoughts triggered by these two posts. The first one talks about the need for multiple people to affect survival in a long term grid down scenario. Ishi, the last Yahi, was born and lived his life in the 19th Century California wilderness. He had the skills, but when his last two […]
Hat Tip to Spec-Ops Medic Gateway Pundit
So, I go into the bathroom to brush my teeth. I absent mindedly grab my toothbrush and put some toothepaste on it from the small tube on the counter. I thought it was odd that we were using a small tube instead of the regular size, but my wife had just cleaned the bathroom, maybe […]
Reacting to the vice president’s on-air appearance, Chicago mayor Richard J. Daley reportedly said, “My God, they’ve embalmed him before he even died.” The following day, the Chicago Daily News ran the headline “Was Nixon Sabotaged by TV Makeup Artists?” Nixon later said, “I should have remembered that ‘a picture is worth a thousand words.’ […]
