Five Men Arrested In Ohio For Trying To Blow Up A Bridge With Fake Explosives.

5 men who claim to be Anarchists were arrested late Monday afternoon, for attempting to blow up the route 82 bridge, just south of Cleveland Ohio. The explosives that they bought to blow up the bridge were fake, so I imagine they would have had a tough time with that endeavor if they had not been caught.

Dudes, you’re giving the rest of us Anarchists a bad name. Besides, isn’t it Governor Kasich’s responsibility to wreck shit in Ohio?

A Real Ice Breaker: The Military is Preparing For The Effects of Global Warming in The Arctic Circle.

As the debate over global warming in political, economic, and scientific circles rages on, there is one rather sizable faction that is convinced that climate change is a certainty: The military. As the polar ice cap continues to melt, military exercises involving many arctic circle countries are already taking place. Just last month, Norway conducted one of the largest military exercises ever, involving 16,300 troops from 14 countries. This exercise, named “Exercise Cold Response,” was used for training in everything ranging from extreme cold weather warfare to fighting terrorism. Two months ago, the U.S, Canada, and Denmark held similar exercises. In addition, military leaders of the U.S, Canada, Russia, Iceland,Denmark, Sweden, and Finland will be meeting in May to discuss potential security issues in the Arctic region.

So why, in the face of the rapidly melting ice cap, is security an issue? Why else? Oil and natural gas. It is estimated that 13% of the world’s undiscovered oil, and 30% of the world’s untapped natural gas lies beneath all that melting ice. As shipping lanes open in the great white north, the exploitation of its resources will not be far behind. KA-CHING!

This is why the energy companies are trying to dispute global warming; they know damn good and well that there are a plethora of natural resources underneath all that ice. It’s in their best economic interest to continue to destroy the planet. The collective military powers around the arctic circle understand this, and are rapidly preparing for oil wars that will most certainly ensue in the decades to come.

Cain Admits That He’s Not Able: Finally Drops Out of Presidential Race

The alleged sexual harasser, serial cheater, and all around prejudiced elitist Herman Cain has finally dropped out of the 2012 presidential campaign. I would say good bye to bad rubbish, but Cain has threatened promised to stick around to remain a so called voice of the people. He’s even started his own web site in order to allow him to keep spreading the manure that’s he’s been dropping on us for the past year. I’m sure his website will be very insightful and enlighten dozens about such evils as socialism, immigration, same sex marriage, and those damned Muslims. So long Herman; do us all a big favor and take Perry, Santorum, and Bachmann with you. By the way, don’t let the door hit you in your dumb ass on your way out.

 

Boehner’s Barristers Back Out: Will Not Defend DOMA.

Paul Clement: Former United States Solicitor G...

A very interesting turn came about today, that will definitely put a hitch in John Boehner’s giddy-up to defend DOMA. The law firm hired to defend DOMA in federal court made an announcement today that they will not represent the government in any suit brought against this unconstitutional law. King & Spalding Chairman Robert D. Hayes had this to say in his announcement to the press:

Today the firm filed a motion to withdraw from its engagement to represent the Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group of the House of Representatives on the constitutional issues regarding Section III of the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act. Last week we worked diligently through the process required for withdrawal.

In reviewing this assignment further, I determined that the process used for vetting this engagement was inadequate. Ultimately I am responsible for any mistakes that occurred and apologize for the challenges this may have created.

Further stirring this pot of Republican lead homophobic intrigue, is the fact that Paul Clement the attorney who was to handle the litigation, resigned to take another position with a smaller law firm run by two Washington D.C attorneys who worked in the Bush administration.

So why the sudden parting of the ways? Could it be that King & Spalding actually have a civil conscience? Or maybe it was the fact that if you’re going to feature on your website the fact that your firm is LGBT friendly, it might be a bad idea to handle federal lawsuits against DOMA. Because, you know, it may kind of make you look like a bunch of hypocrites.

As for Clement, well don’t be surprised if he still works for Boehner and the rest of his gay hating cronies from his new firm. If his new bosses worked for Bush, you can bet your ass they are as homophobic as Bush, Boehner, etc.

Stay tuned, this fight isn’t over. Not by a long shot.

Rick Santorum Is Making It Too Easy!

The Ways of White Folks by Langston Hughes, 1934

Image via Wikipedia

I came across this little gem today at ThinkProgress. Rick Santorum, second in America to Fred Phelps in rampant homophobia, has a campaign slogan for his presidential bid.  Mr. Santorum is “Fighting to make America America again.” It’s a great thought; too bad Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes thought of it first. Hughes was a wonderful African-American poet during the renaissance. He wrote many poems that reflected the African-American struggles in white dominated America. He was also a very open homosexual. Hughes was a well spoken advocate for gay rights during a time when being out, particularly black and out, could mean a certain death sentence.

Santorum has stolen borrowed his campaign slogan from a poem of Hughes, titled ” Let America be America again.” According to the article from ThinkProgress, the poem is ” pro-union, pro racial justice, and pro immigrant.” Three issues that I’m sure Santorum holds dear to his heart.

Hmmm, maybe Santorum has decided to remove that massive, gay hating, christian stick from his ass, and is starting to view the world through rainbow-colored glasses. Naaah, it’s more likely he’s never heard of “Let America be America again.” Hell, he’s probably never heard of Langston Hughes. After all, there’s no mention of him in Leviticus.
