Vietnam veteran stands up to Baltimore rioters, becomes hero of the night

April 28, 2015

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sN1qSRgKoU0

While police stood by and watched the city of Baltimore succumb to looting and plundering, one lone Vietnam veteran stood in front of them, and in front of rioters, and took control of the situation like only a veteran can.

Robert Valentine, who initially identified himself as “just a soldier,” was caught by CNN cameras yelling at the rioters to go away. Shockingly, they listened.

CNN reporter Joe Johns asked Valentine if he was concerned for his own safety when he confronted the mob.

“I did 30 years, OK, came out a Master Sergeant. I’ve seen more than all this,” he said. “I’ve been through the riots already. This right here is not relevant. They need to have their butts at home. They need to be in their home units with their families studying and doing something with their life. Not out here protesting about something that is not really about nothing.

“They do not respect this young man’s death. You know. Now, mama and daddy lost a child. That could be them. So I’m very pissed.”

When asked why he did it when others would be afraid, Valentine gave the greatest answer.

“I love my country. I love my Charm City. I’m an American,” he said. “I’m not black, white, red, yellow or nothing. I am American.”

Too bad Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake doesn’t have the same leadership ability.

Daryl Hall and John Oates have just uploaded high quality versions of their music videos to YouTube

You can see them at https://www.youtube.com/user/hallandoatesVEVO/videos

These are much better quality than the VHS recordings that many fans have uploaded over the years.

It’s not a mistake that they uploaded “Jingle Bell Rock” twice – one version has Daryl singing, and the other one has John.

My family got cable with MTV in July 1982. I even remember MTV celebrating its one year anniversary a month later. I though I had seen every Hall and Oates video a huge number of times – but I had no idea that they had videos of songs from their X-Static album. What a pleasant surprise!

With help from 80 years of self-described “progressives,” Obama is now waging the biggest war against medical marijuana of any president in history

Anyone who has been following the self-described “progressive” politicians since FDR should not be surprised at Obama’s war against medical marijuana.

Obama’s war against medical marijuana is a direct result of the policies of the self-described “progressives” in the White House, Congress, and the U.S. Supreme Court, going all the way back to FDR’s New Deal.

Wikipedia’s “Barack Obama” article violates Wikipedia’s “Neutral point of view” policy

Wikipedia’s “Neutral point of view” policy states:

“All encyclopedic content on Wikipedia must be written from a neutral point of view (NPOV), which means representing fairly, proportionately, and, as far as possible, without bias, all of the significant views that have been published by reliable sources on a topic.”

Perhaps biological evolution created homo sapiens for the purpose of putting carbon back into the atmosphere

http://news.heartland.org/newspaper-article/2015/03/20/why-i-am-climate-change-skeptic

By Patrick Moore

March 20, 2015

Editor’s Note: Patrick Moore, Ph.D., has been a leader in international environmentalism for more than 40 years. He cofounded Greenpeace.

Human Emissions Saved Planet

Over the past 150 million years, carbon dioxide had been drawn down steadily (by plants) from about 3,000 parts per million to about 280 parts per million before the Industrial Revolution. If this trend continued, the carbon dioxide level would have become too low to support life on Earth. Human fossil fuel use and clearing land for crops have boosted carbon dioxide from its lowest level in the history of the Earth back to 400 parts per million today.

At 400 parts per million, all our food crops, forests, and natural ecosystems are still on a starvation diet for carbon dioxide. The optimum level of carbon dioxide for plant growth, given enough water and nutrients, is about 1,500 parts per million, nearly four times higher than today. Greenhouse growers inject carbon-dioxide to increase yields. Farms and forests will produce more if carbon-dioxide keeps rising.

I hope this cigarette will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law

Officials say cigarette sparked fatal motel fire

March 20, 2015

The state police fire marshal today said a cigarette was the cause of a fatal motel fire in Westmoreland County on Thursday.

Timothy Paul Shane, 43, of Hempfield was killed in the fire at the Motel 3 on Route 30 in Adamsburg, according to the county coroner’s office.

State police fire marshal Scott Mackanick ruled the fire an accident and said Mr. Shane was smoking a cigarette that ignited the blaze around 6:30 a.m.

A section of Route 30 was closed in the area of the fire, as was the Irwin exit off of the Pennsylvania Turnpike.

Mr. Shane’s cause and manner of death are pending toxicology results from an autopsy, the fire marshal said.

Why do feminists care how many Fortune 500 CEOs are female?

It doesn’t make any sense to care how many Fortune 500 CEOs are female. Instead, what does matter is how many of the Fortune 500 companies were started by a woman in the first place.

A fake feminist demands that companies created by men hire more female CEOs. A real feminist starts her own company and makes herself the CEO.
