Gotta post this after learning that gun violence in Chicago by thugs is on the rise again now that it’s Spring:
Just take a look at the Bullpen:
Yes, well I’m outraged that MacDonalds served me tepid orange juice yesterday morning!

The museum opens in May so I’m assuming we’ll see more of this, especially by CAIR and their lib allies.
The Rhetoric of “Islamic Terrorism” and the September 11 Memorial Museum — Todd Fine/Medium
The curatorial team made numerous politically-charged decisions in the design of the museum’s permanent exhibition, and one of the most sensitive, and likely subject to substantial international scrutiny, will be the characterization of Islam in relation to the ideology of al-Qaeda. Islam is the religion of nearly one-fourth of the world’s population, and tying the beliefs of 1.6 billion people to the actions of a small group would be highly reckless in such a prominent setting. Therefore, I was alarmed to discover that the museum has indeed chosen to conflate terrorism and religion, with their advance materials using the highly problematic term “Islamic terrorism.”

Keith Ellison Disagrees Because Nuh-uh!
Lauded prognosticator and sometime darling of the political left Nate Silver this morning unveiled a prediction sure to wad the undergarments of many a stressed out Dem looking to the midterms.
In the words of the immortal Plato, “nyah nah nuh boo boo!” Yes, Silver not only predicts a 60% chance of Republicans taking the Senate, but a 30% chance of a huge win. He offers a compelling state by state case covering some of the key races: Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Alaska, Michigan, Colorado, Iowa, yeaargh!! Silver’s analysis is hard to argue with.
But that, of course, doesn’t stop the arguing, as frequent MSNBC guest and master of the art of self-delusion Rep. Keith Ellison is quick to follow-up in the next segment with a strong “no because shut up!”.

God’s Not Dead didn’t have a massive marketing budget, a liberal A-list star above the title or even the same number of screens most mainstream movies receive.
The film is still on pace to snare the fourth spot in the weekend’s box office chart in a very competitive frame.
What it had in its corner–a popular actor known for his work on TV’s Hercules, the presence of one of Duck Dynasty’s key stars and an unabashedly pro-faith message.
The film, which enjoyed a 18 percent bounce from Friday to Saturday, is slated to make between $8.6 and $8.9 million. Those figures are all the more impressive considering the film was shown on just 780 screens across the country.

Reminder – National Council of Churches Boycotted Hobby Lobby
from Maggie’s Notebook
Tuesday, March 25, 2014 is the day the much-watched case of Hobby Lobby is heard before the U.S. Supreme Court to defend against the ObamaCare morning-after birth control provision. Let me set the stage for you, as it’s been occupied with a real cast of characters for quite a while now. To all my Christian friends, if you are not aware that the National Council of Churches joined with MoveOn.org (yes — MoveOn.org) to oppose Hobby Lobby’s resistance to providing, not birth control or sterilization, but abortifacients (Plan B in US), you know it now. And they called for a boycott of the Oklahoma-based company. Eighty-four Friends of the Court briefs have been filed — an historic number — by a three-to-one margin, in favor of Hobby Lobby.
Faithful America, a creation of the National Council of Churches, has joined forces with a far left feminist organization called UltraViolet (led by former MoveOn.org activist Nita Chaudhary) to pressure Christian-led business Hobby Lobby to give up its quest to maintain its ethical standards.
Nita Chaudhary and MoveOn.org were behind the General David Betray Us ad. Remember that? Proud feminist that she is, you won’t find her railing against the plight of Muslim women around the world or the vile lyrics and uber-sexual stage machinations of those who are adored by young girls and boys everywhere.

‘Off-the-grid’ Florida widow guilty of … sustainable living?
A Florida woman has been convicted of the crime of living differently than her neighbors, but The Rutherford Institute has come to her rescue.
Robin Speronis of Cape Coral, Florida, is at odds with the city, according to John Whitehead, founder of The Rutherford Institute.
“She doesn’t have a refrigerator, oven, running water, or electricity in her home. She lives off of solar panels for electricity needs. She collects rain water for her water supply,” he describes. “She uses a propane camping stove, runs her electronics on solar-charged batteries, showers using a camping shower, collects again rain water and all that stuff – and so she’s basically moved off the grid.”
Some very positive stories in the media evidently tipped off city officials to her lifestyle.
“That alerted the city, so a city official actually came out and – without even looking in her home – ruled her home ‘unsafe’ and said that if she did not hook up to certain things she would be evicted from her home,” says Whitehead.
