Navy to Name Ship After Gay Rights Activist Harvey Milk

How inspiring! This will probably cause all the LGBT crowd to break down the doors of the recruiting stations. This is exactly what our military needs.

Stupidity aside, I think we all know that a good military requires tough men , strong men, courageous men who are willing to put their lives on the line for their country.

Venezuela has a new ‘forced labor’ law that can require people to work in fields

It is fascinating to watch this play out. Although socialism has is proving itself once again to be in capable of being able to effectively govern our country, we still have people within our country who somehow believes Socialism works.

For those of you who have been unaware of what is happening in this country, The Venezuelan President Maduro has wrecked his country’s economy because he forced all businesses to sell basic items at a very low price. Once businesses sell out of those goods, no one wants to invest in them again. They lose money. Stores with luxury items still have full shelves. But no businesses really want to stock these basic items. As a result, the local stores simply run out of these items . People are not able to get things like food.

Some news reports, like this one, claim that the problem is due to low prices on oil , of which Venezuela has a great quantity. But that only exacerbated the original problem of forcing businesses to sell items at unusually low prices.

Maturo has been doing lots of things to keep himself in power. This latest news item indicates that he is now able to force people to work on farms. I wonder whether this will be used to force people that he doesn’t like to work on farms? Will this be used as a type of reeducation camp?

Afghan Islamic Cleric “Marries” Six-Year-Old Girl, Claims Parents Offered Her As A “Religious Offering”

Anyone who calls himself religious and approves of this has no conscience.

The “cleric” looks like he spends too much time around the liquor store.

Kerry: Air conditioners as big a threat as ISIS

Of course, the biggest threat would be if ISIS was using air-conditioners.

But seriously, the Montréal protocol set out to ban a number of substances that were reported to be bad for the ozone. This banned several substances that went into air conditioners and refrigerators. When they banned those substances, the cost of air conditioning service for your car or buying a refrigerator went up. Those substances are called chlorofluorocarbons or CFCs.

Don’t roll your eyes yet. Stay with me. The replacements were hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs. In some ways, these substances are much worse for the environment. That was not known at the time. Secretary of State Kerry is going to an international conference to attempt to ban HFCs. Although previous efforts tried to protect the environment, they actually ended up making it worse.

The primary lesson is to avoid an over-reliance on science. There is still a lot that we have yet to learn. Don’t get me wrong. We certainly need the help of science, but it is sometimes wrong. Everyone has heard of food items that were once considered bad for you that are now okay and vice-versa. We must realize that science does not have all the answers. And sometimes it is just plain wrong. A good moral and ethical framework, plus a healthy acceptance of science, plus a little skepticism, is the best way forward.

Shocker: DNC Has No Visible American Flags At Their Convention – UPDATE: Palestinian Terror Flag Makes An Appearance… | Weasel Zippers

Interesting comparison. Normally, these conventions have lots of everything red, white, and blue. The absence at the DNC is probably because they don’t want to scare off illegals and felons.

Obama: Honesty Is ‘Absolutely Necessary’ Trait for a President

And this franchise from a President who lied to the public to get Obamacare and the Iran deal passed. The pot calling the kettle a liar.

Politicians are well known liars. Of course, not all of them, but most lies are about saying one thing and doing another. But Obama’s lies are intentional. This kind of lying has to start long before.
