National Guard Sent to Ferguson, MO

The Democrat governor of Missouri, Jay Nixon, has ordered the state′s National Guard into the town of Ferguson only hours after doing 5 Sunday talk shows complaining about police militarization. For over a week, the town has been a scene of utter chaos following the shooting death of a black teenager, Michael Brown by a white police officer, Darren Wilson. The incident has sparked racial tension and civil unrest, resulting in looting, terror, violence and many arrests. Some of the protestors are from out of town, like the New Black Panther Party, stirring up more trouble. Efforts to enforce a curfew have led instead to more violence as hooligans throw Molotov cocktails at police.

The Louisville Purge Hoax Prank (Open Thread)

In Louisville, Kentucky, The Purge was almost in real life as a teenage prankster played an early Halloween trick. Posting a modified image of the movie poster for ′The Purge: Anarchy′ film released recently by Paramount on social media, residents in Louisville and in Detroit, Michigan thought that a night of lawless violence may be upon them. Sites like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook were used to spread the rumor. In Louisville, some 80,000 people used a ′scanner′ on line, taken in by The Purge hoax. Many others wondered is The Purge real and threats abound. But nothing happened other than a false report that a giraffe was freed from the Louisville Zoo. Police have spoken with the teenage prankster and have decided not to press any charges.

Another group plans on using ancient Native American skills and hide out on a small island in Minnesota trapping beaver and living in a wigwam. Our third family is in Vermont is headed by a retired physics professor who uses his brain to come up with a survival dome that can hold up against most weaponry, including a home-made air-cannon. Being in Vermont, he also makes maximum use of maple trees and built an ice house to keep provisions frozen all year round. So let us meet our preppers…

Has America already lost itself?

America’s priorities are all upside down right now. Never mind our so called leaders; we the people have no clear absolutes anymore, no engagement with reality. Just look at what turns our head and what we tolerate. Read the rest of this entry »

Robin Williams, 63, dies from an apparent suicide yesterday. The comedic actor was found dead in his home in northern California. While the method of how he committed suicide is unknown, the initial report by police is that Robin Williams died from asphyxiation. So whether he hung himself or used natural gas or committed suicide in his garage is a mystery. An autopsy will be done and the method will eventually be announced. Despite Robin Williams being among the funniest comics in entertainment history, he has a long struggle with drugs, alcohol and depression. All of Hollywood is in shock and mourning the loss.

Sons of Guns Will Hayden Arrested on Child Molestation Allegations

Star of the Discovery Channel series ′Sons of Guns′ William Hayden was arrested over the weekend on allegations of child molestation and ′aggravated crimes against nature′, according to The Advocate in Louisiana. Police took Hayden, 49, into custody and he spent Friday night in the Baton Rouge Parish jail. He was released the following day after posting a $150,000 bond. His company, Red Jacket Firearms LLC, issued a statement dismissing the charges as being false. The girl in question was apparently the daughter of a woman whom Hayden had a relationship with. The woman was apparently fired recently by Hayden. According to an interview of the girl in question by police, there was no actual physical contact with Hayden, he was just walking around the house wearing nothing but a pair of boxer briefs. I have to wonder if that image counts as ′aggravated crimes against nature′?
