After an amber alert and car chase, a 15 year old KY kid is charged with killing his 50 year old second cousin and her husband. The couple, Gary and Barbara Holloway, had taken this incorrigible kid in and cared for him after his mother had given up on him.
Their adult son had gone to check on them, after he had been unable to reach them by phone, and found them dead in their bed.
The apparent cause of contention: the Holloways had tried to prevent the teen from dating a 12 year old girl.
Single comment from Pharmer’s hubby: “Hope he likes guys.”
Remember when the lefties began using an alternate term for the A word. You know……. Choice = Abortion.
Now there’s a new word for another kind of killing. It’s “Kinetic“. Kinetic used to mean ‘of or pertaining to motion‘, before the lefties got a hold of it. Of course, action is pretty much a similar thing. So you have extreme redundancy surrounding the term ‘military’ to refer to WAR when the lefties do it.
So there you have it: War = Kinetic Military Action.
The bonehead who may be credited with this latest idiocy is Deputy National Security Advisor, Ben Rhodes, and here’s his statement quoted at the Politico:
“I think what we are doing is enforcing a resolution that has a very clear set of goals, which is protecting the Libyan people, averting a humanitarian crisis, and setting up a no-fly zone,” Rhodes said. “Obviously that involves kinetic military action, particularly on the front end. But again, the nature of our commitment is that we are not getting into an open-ended war, a land invasion in Libya.”
There’s a video under heated discussion showing SEIU leader Steve Lerner (who headed the Justice for Janitors effort). His bright idea was a sort of mortgage strike….. everyone refuse to pay, in order to take down the lenders. You will want to see the transcript, and especially the last line of it at the Blaze. The initially presented video and an uncut version also are there.
The SEIU seems to have a problem with capitalism.
That Lerner is no longer holding his former position with the Union might be used to exonerate SEIU of this plot to destabilize the US economy, (similarly to planned parenthood firing Some of their errant employees after they were caught aiding and abetting child prostitution.)
But this does not apply to Obama.
Meanwhile, Germany is backing out of NATO surveillance in the Mediterranean. Italy wants to withdraw the use of its airstrips for military flights if the operation is not NATO controlled. No one wants to lead this war, and Obama still says no ground troops no matter what.
but You should see it first. It’s a message from planned parenthood of Illinois to their activists, concerning three bills that regulate abortion clinics. One of the bills, which would require all personnel working at the abortion clinic to report visits by victims of child sex abuse, was met by the protest that such reporting would overload the department of children and family services.
Apparently the people at planned parenthood feel that there are a huge number of abused underage girls utilizing their abortion services. This kicker is in the second paragraph of the letter linked above. Check it out.
Planned parenthood has since backed away from this a bit….. realizing that their opposition to this bill (particularly after having been caught in aiding and abetting child abuse) is not good for public relations, and further government funding. They have since taken the offensive paragraph out of the letter at their website.

In the National Review Deroy Murdock has compiled a sampling of the death threats and unsavory behavior of the leftist Union supporters in Wisconsin.
Attention is called to it here because the Leftist media will not speak out against its own people, in the same way that Attorney General Eric Holder would not prosecute his own people for crimes committed.
There is not even a pretense of respect for the rule of law under the Obama administration. We have become a banana republic.
Japan wouldn’t need to ban all the food from the farms near Fukushima. A lot of the radioactive contamination has short half life. The produce would become edible after some time in the can or freezer, even if initial levels are too high for immediate consumption, after washing. (When the glow starts to go, chow down.) Moving food and processing it will be a much bigger job than usual in some of these areas.
The radioactivity in the water found in Tokyo is below safety limits thus far.
In the AM of today, some smoke is rising from the spent fuel storage of reactor 3 at Fukushima Daiichi, and the workers have scooted out of there for a bit.
Wouldn’t you know it, the Fukushima Daiichi data is being amassed at Wikipedia. It’s a starting point for learning about this, not the final word, and the article even indicates this at the top. The wiki piece is pretty comprehensive and appears to be infinitely more useful than the garbage coming out of the media.
