American Teenagers Riding A Hookah To Hell!

My attention was caught this morning by a headline from USA Today that read: “Some teens gravitate toward hookah use”.

Whenever teenagers gravitate toward anything, you know it’s not good.

A quick survey of teen gravitation leads me to the information that teenagers are gravitating toward:

– Instagram… and a life of unpaid social media [...]

Will There Be A Chinese Attack Against America Before July 4th?

In April this year, a guy who goes by the pseudonym “Truther” predicted that there would be a terrorist attack at a conference called Moogfest. That terrorist attack never happened.

Yet, “Truther” has continued to pump out predictions of doom and gloom at a steady pace. His latest claim is that the CIA will engineer [...]

Authority Elbows In At The Libertarian Party National Convention

Tomorrow, the 2014 national convention of the Libertarian Party will begin. For a Libertarian convention, the convention looks tightly focused on rules and regulations. The first several events are:

Is Collapse Of Time Streams Creating Agricultural Shortages That Only Preppers Will Survive?

Before It’s News, a right wing web site that trades in wild conspiracy theories, usually takes the trouble in each of its articles to plainly state the reasons that disaster is just around the corner. They typically name who’s to blame: The Illuminati, reptilian overlords, aliens from the planet Niburu, or Islamic Marxist Economic Elites.

Political Group Reinvents A New Direction For The Second Time

What could be more temporally confused than a political group that calls itself Reinventing A New Direction? A direction, if it is truly new, and not merely rehashed elements from an old direction, cannot be reinvented.

How about a group that calls itself Reinventing A New Direction 2014, which is a successor to an organization [...]

The Congressional Candidate For A Nice Long Nap

I’m looking for an answer to a campaign finance oddity. Yesterday, the American Society of Anesthesiologists Political Action Committee declared to the FEC that it had spent $110,000.00 for radio advertisements supporting Patrick Hope, one of many Democrats competing for their party’s nomination to Virginia’s 8th district seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

A Petition For Planetary Liberation

These are dangerous times.

The Cobra Resistance warns us that “there are forces within the banking establishment, military-industrial complex and also on the non-physical planes that do not wish humanity to be free. They have stolen our money. They have poisoned our food. They are trying to take away our freedom. They are trying to [...]

God Crashes Truck into Baltimore TV Station and Is Barricaded Inside

I have found God!

The Boston Globe is reporting that God has stolen a landscaping truck and driven it through the glass windows of the lobby of the headquarters of ABC TV affiliate WMAR in Baltimore, Maryland. God, wearing a backpack, then left the truck and forced His way into the WMAR news studio, where [...]

Bernie Sanders / Bank Of America 2016 Big Data Running Mates For The White House

Bernard Sanders is a frequent critic of Bank of America. So, the senator’s own Twitter feed, as well as Twitter feeds of his supporters, often include the phrase “Bank of America”. Twitter’s predictive system is too stupid, however, to notice that Sanders and his fans are describing Bank of America as heartless, corrupt, abusive, and vile. [...]
