What is it with the Obamas?
It seems to me that virtually every speech Michelle or Barack give has the “we demand that you thank us” segment.
These two praise-grubbing creatures are always demanding appreciation from us for all that they have done.
One of my favorite Psalms from the Bible is Psalm 98 which begins:
O sing to the Lord a new song,
For He has done wonderful things,
His right hand and His holy arm have gained the victory for Him.
The Lord has made known His salvation;
He has revealed His righteousness in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered His lovingkindness and His faithfulness to the house of Israel;
All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
It’s as if the Obamas demand the same kind of Hallel from each and every one of us.

… by raising taxes, increasing government, impeding capitalism and reducing national sovereignty. Coincidentally, the same policies they would promote if their supposed environmental catastrophe was utter fiction. It is little wonder that voters are suspicious.
Went to a Block Party in my neighborhood here in the North East. Of course, all the neighbors who were meeting for the first time, were talking about the weather. As they discussed the approaching “bad” winter we’re “suppose” to get, the guy next to me said, “It’s all Global Warming’s fault”. I thought the remark was said in sarcasm and I laughed… a lot. It wasn’t. I think I sincerely laughed hard enough that it embarrassed him and shut him up.

Where is Michelle Obama’s hashtag campaign #BanShariaLaw? I guess she’d rather ban cupcakes from kindergartners.
Yet ISIS, the Taliban and other Muslim extremist groups are committing horrific acts of violence against women and children every day. Under Sharia Law, women have virtually zero rights and are routinely raped, beaten and sold off as sex slaves or child brides. Many are forced to wear a burqa and can’t even show their faces in public. Women and girls are abused, tortured, stoned, gang-raped or outright killed if they do anything their male rulers deem wrong.
A Tokyoite reassesses her view of Japan after another violent encounter is ignored by passers-by, police
BY HOLLY LANASOLYLUNA
I’ve lived in Japan on and off for several years, and I’ve always felt safe on my bicycle here, particularly as I often see young and old women alike biking at all hours of the night. But after an event a few weeks ago, I feel as if this false sense of security has been stripped away. Cycling home at 8:30 p.m. on a well-lit street in Tokyo, I sensed another biker by my side, so I slowed down to let him pass. At that point he suddenly cut over, trapped me against a parked car and grabbed my tire. Full Story
The notorious history of drunken Hollywood
Perhaps the worst, and most surprising, turn of events came when Crawford, who had previously played the “mentally handicapped” Lenny in “Of Mice and Men” on Broadway, found Sinatra teasing him one too many times, as Ol’ Blue Eyes liked to mock him by calling him “Lenny.”
Crawford “held the singer down, tore off his toupeé, and proceeded to eat the damn thing.” Mitchum tried to separate the two but Crawford lashed out at him, and then they fought until Crawford, his throat filled with toupee hair, began to choke and “one of the film’s medical advisers had to rush over to help him puke it up.”
Chip Knappenberger writes: Should We Credit Global Warming When Disasters Don’t Happen?
Every time there is some sort of weather disaster somewhere, someone blames it on human-caused global warming. Maybe not directly, but the implication is clear. “While we can’t link individual events to global warming, the increase of this type of event is consistent with our expectations, blah, blah…”
BOSTON (AP) – There’s some truth to the effectiveness of folk remedies and old wives’ tales when it comes to serious medical issues, according to findings by a team from Detroit Medical Center.
Dr. Sonal Saraiya and her colleagues in Michigan found that packing strips of cured pork in the nose of a child who suffers from uncontrollable, life-threatening nosebleeds can stop the hemorrhaging, a discovery that won them a 2014 Ig Nobel prize, the annual award for sometimes inane, yet often surprisingly practical, scientific discoveries.

GREENSBORO — The first in the current wave of Syrian refugees will arrive in the Triad this week, representatives with the organizations helping to resettle them said Friday.
A Syrian family of seven will arrive on Tuesday and will settle in Greensboro, said Sarah Ivory, the director of refugee and immigration services with Church World Service in Greensboro. The family includes five children, the youngest just 5 months old, Ivory said. The oldest is 10 years old.
Andrew Timbie, the office director for World Relief’s High Point office, said his organization is helping to resettle a family in Winston-Salem. That family also will arrive next week, although he would not provide the exact date.

The video shows the White couple getting attacked by a group of six Black men, who quietly come up behind them and then lash out in a violent assault – throwing around, punching, kicking, and stomping on the White male during the unprovoked attack.
No arrests have yet been made, but the Springfield, MO Police put the video up on YouTube, asking the public for help in identifying suspects involved in an assault.
The Springfield News-Leader reported that the Police on Friday said YouTube took down the video and issued cops an email saying the clip violated community guidelines, the News-Leader said.
“YouTube is all about sharing, and it can feel great to get positive feedback and attention from the community,” the email said, according to the paper. “But when users receive comments or videos that attack and bully them, their experience is no longer fun or safe.”
In addition the online video giant warned the Springfield police that more violations might mean the department might lose the ability to post videos — or even see its account permanently suspended.
