As I understand the stop-and-frisk ruling, now police will have to harass a huge number of white people far out of proportion to their actual numbers in the area, or in terms of suspects,in order to do anything useful. AKA: the TSA's cunning plan to make sure the jihadis all get through.

The "boob bomb" story is more like a fringe benefit to the TSA employees than an actual threat.

24 Dana White does a pre-fight media scrum before each UFC event. This one, held in Boston, he really went off on all the crooked Dem politicians and union thugs trying to fuck over the UFC.

Repubs should highlight this cause it's a mainstream, non-political guy like Dana going standing up against blatant political corruption.

Dems want to unionize Station Casino in Vegas. Station is owned by the Fertita who also own UFC. Dana White is minority owner, Fertita Bros are the money behind UFC.

Dems in heavy union cities in the east -- Philly, Boston, NYC -- routinely fuck with UFC any way they can. It's pure gangster govt. They throw every roadblock they can, always with the message, if you let us unionize Station Casino then all these problems will go away.

What a stupid assertion. A major part of my job requires me to be on the internet for long periods of time, sometimes all day. Was anyone ever concerned about "Reading Addicts"?

"Help! I just can't stop reading! I pick up the newspaper in the morning and then I'm off to the library to do some intense research! After lunch I review and mail business documents. When I get home, I review and revise a manuscript I'm working on and end the day with a good novel. I can't even go into a restroom without taking a magazine! I need help with this addiction!"
So. Stupid.

41 Report: DHS spends $600,000 apieceto build homes worth$100,000 each

Washington Times: http://tinyurl.com/nj3pycl


The Homeland Security Department spent $600,000 apiece to build houses in Arizona that would have gone for less than $100,000, according to a report in the Arizona Republic that’s raising questions in Congress.

“This type of spending is irresponsible as our nation faces significant budget deficits and the men and women in the Border Patrol face cuts in overtime that are essential to their mission,” Rep. Ron Barber, the Arizona Democrat in whose district the homes were built, said in a statement Friday...



First off, fucking gubmint.

Second, WTF is DHS doing building houses?

81 Not to get too nit-picky but the Nephalim are considered to be the half human offspring of fallen angels (The reason you have stories of giants with 6 fingers like Goliath).

Furthermore, the group of 200 angels to have purportedly taken human wives were a separate group and were not associated with the alleged original Heavenly Rebellion.

While "Satan" and his angels are free to roam the Earth, this group of 200's sins against God's Creation were considered so great that they were locked away in Tartarus until Judgment Day.

I've found that most people writing on the subject do it by using it as a plot device it in a novel. The folks that publish in the vein of nonfiction study tend to get a little tin-foil hatty too, unfortunately.

I'd just read the Book of Enoch to start. It's interesting to read it and think about whether it was considered canon even during Jesus' life as some claim.
