This whole l'affaire du Ferguson has me just pounding forehead shaped divots into my desk. It’s like everything I cannot stand about humans all rolled into one stupid story. First, nobody really knows what happened. Minus the parts that totally fit with their biases and preconceptions. That stuff is swear on a Holy Bible tight. About the only facts is that a cop shot Michael Brown and Brown died and that Brown had just robbed a convenience store of some Swisher Sweets while roughing up the...

The headline screams School on lockdown after 2 men shot in Brandon to which I immediately freaked out. But then I read that this wasn’t a school shooting but that they had simply locked them down while they looked for someone. But that headline? Really made it sound like a school shooting.

Many of you are probably aware of the absolute horseshit story about a boy playing airsoft in his own yard and getting suspended from school over it, right? Because, it’s absolute horseshit. As in, the media got the story wrong and gunnies jumped all over this before the information was complete. You see, the kids were shooting other kids waiting at the bus stop, which does put the issue into ‘school grounds’. Here’s the principal’s letter. In the course of the investigation, conducted in...

Not a school shooting by any stretch, but don’t think it won’t be made to look like it.

An Army soldier has been murdered by his captors. Iraqi militants killed an American soldier they have held hostage for nearly three months, saying the killing was because the U.S. government did not change its policy in Iraq, Al-Jazeera television reported Tuesday. I don't know what the proper response is. The “warmonger” in me wants to level a town for every soldier or citizen killed by these thugs, but logic and my humanity tells me that is wrong. Some may say we should...

Glad to see the sucker punch to the terrorists on the Iraqi Sovereignty handover. 2 days ahead of schedule. Unfortunately I don't believe for a minute that this will end the attacks and I fear Wassef Ali Hassoun and the Pakistani man recently abducted by AQ will meet the same fate as the rest. Hassoun is a fellow Marine, and I know what would happen if you let my guys go do what they know best. Still, this is a historic day. There's still the chance another evil regime sprouts up, but we...

Via Fox News. Bastards. Bitch and moan all you want about the evil American Empire™ but we, as a country, do not behead our captives and parade them around the world. And when one of our guys steps out of line, we rabidly persue justice. Just ask yourself this question - Would you prefer to be an imprisoned by any terrorist organization or by America? This wasn't one of ours, but we should react as if it were. This was, more than likely, an innocent human being who was just in...

I'm trying to do my part to expose this travesty. The Hooters in Lakeland, Florida is having a contest {from Sekimori} The contest is for girls 5 and under, and will require they be dressed in little orange spandex shorts, and a tied up Hooters t-shirt. Simply disgusting. Please let Hooters know how you feel about this stunt. [UPDATE] I received an email back from Hooters. Thank you for expressing your concern regarding the contest in Florida. A store manager decided to host an event for...
