And so I do what I always do, I go to YouTube for some proper DIY advice.
Seems pretty clear. She is entitled to her beliefs and opinions, but if, as a public official, she can’t or won’t, for whatever reason, perform the duties for which she was elected, she shouldn’t be in that office. Religion isn’t the issue. That’s just her excuse. Performance of duties is. By flouting the law and the court, she got what she deserved.
A federal judge has ordered a Kentucky county clerk to jail Thursday after she repeatedly refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
U.S. District Judge David Bunning said Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis would remain in the custody of U.S. Marshals until she complied with court orders to issue the licenses. Bunning said fines weren’t enough to compel Davis, who has remained defiant in the face of the Supreme Court’s decision in June to legalize same-sex marriage, Ryland Barton of Kentucky Public Radio reported.
Bunning told Davis that while public officials may have their own religious beliefs, they still must respect the law, Blue Grass Politics tweeted.
It’s the end of the world I tells ya!
Billionaire climate philanthropist George Soros invested more than $2m (£1.3m) in struggling coal giants Peabody Energy and Arch Coal in recent months, despite having once called the fuel “lethal” to the climate.
Filings with the Securities and Exchange commission show that between April and June this year Soros Fund Management (SFM) bought more than 1m shares in Peabody ($2.25m), the world’s largest private coal company, and 500,000 shares in Arch ($188,000).
The firm, which Soros chairs, bought the large stakes for bargain prices. Peabody and Arch are giants of the US coal sector but have suffered massive declines in recent years, losing more than 98% of their value. SFM made a similar move in 2014 by investing $234.4m in coal and gas company Consol. Those shares were sold off after a few months as gas prices continued to fall.
FUNNY!!!! And just a little bit sad.
Could this be the end of California’s drought?
Forecasters are warning the West Coast could be hit by what may possibly be the strongest El Niño season on record later this year.
Forecasters with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center told reporters Thursday warming ocean waters nearing North and South America could bring some much-needed rain – along with some other potentially hairy weather – to the region in what one climatologist described as a “Godzilla El Niño”.
The drought was blamed on global warming. So if it rains too much what will they blame? Global warming! No matter what happens – it’s global warming. But it will be good news if we get a lot of water. Even if it means flooding.

A woman wore her Fitbit Charge HR during sex and posted the results on Imgur, where the not-so-graphic, graphic has been viewed more than 1.1 million times as of midday on Tuesday.
Her heart-rate peaked (123 beats per minute) at the time that one might expect.
Her average BPM was 109 for the approximately eight minute “fat burn” exercise.
This makes me very interested in getting a fitbit like device. But I would want one that was a smartwatch too. I found this fascinating.
Gov. John Hickenlooper on Tuesday drank a hearty gulp of the Animas River in an effort to highlight that the river has returned to pre-contamination conditions. The governor and his health department director, however, cautioned that residents should not be freely drinking from the river, because the water was unsafe for consumption even before the Environmental Protection Agency released an estimated 3 million gallons of mining wastewater into it.
But the drinking exercise indicated that state officials are more than confident that the river does not pose a toxic risk to humans, as they publicly stated on Tuesday.
“Am I willing to go out there and demonstrate that we’re back to normal?” Hickenlooper asked out loud after The Durango Herald raised the idea with the governor. “Certainly. I’m happy to do that. I’m dead serious.”
Another day, another argument that a flag must come down. Today’s target is a bit surprising — the POW/MIA flag that flies from government buildings, honoring the hundreds of Americans still missing and unaccounted for in Vietnam. Writing in the pages of Newsweek, a very angry Rick Perlstein is simply not having it, declaring, “That damned flag: It’s a shroud. It smothers the complexity, the reality, of what really happened in Vietnam.” In fact, he claims the entire emphasis on American missing and POW’s was nothing but a political trick designed to detract from alleged American deceptions and war crimes.
It’s not common to see a leftist still carrying the torch for the Viet Cong and the NVA, but it’s a useful reminder of the rage that beats within some leftist hearts, a rage that can even take a symbol meant to honor and remind Americans of the undeniable fact that there are — in fact — men who are missing in Vietnam, men we can’t account for an may never be found, and turn it into a symbol of — you guessed it — racism. Never mind that Americans were dying to defend people of the exact same race as the enemies they fought. Never mind that families fly the flag to remind their neighbors of their sacrifice, and our nation flies it to remind citizens of the men of courage who fought a deadly Communist enemy. It’s not a battle flag, nor is it a flag of conquest. It’s a flag of remembrance.
Are we ever going to get past this nonsense? I heard a talk show host yesterday proposing that the term “Democrat” needs to be abandoned because of the democrats long history of racism. Yeah, it’s as stupid as it sounds…or is it?. Can’t these people find something better to do with their lives?
I hope he’s serious but I can’t help to think that anyone who knows me is automatically disqualified as being a serious candidate. But he is in the news. Larry is famous for quite a few things including Creative Commons, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and various clean money campaigns. Here’s a link to a Washington Post article about it. I would definitely vote for Larry if I get the chance to.
Another think about Larry Lessig. In 2008 he was the only person I ever met who knew who Obama was before 2004.
The actress perhaps best known for her role as Laura Ingalls Wilder on the TV series “Little House on the Prairie” is taking a run at Congress.
Melissa Gilbert announced Monday her candidacy to represent Michigan’s 8th congressional district as a Democrat, the seat currently held by Republican Mike Bishop.
Bishop was first elected in 2014 and will be running as the incumbent in 2016.
Michigan’s 8th district includes the state capital, Lansing, and Oakland, Ingham and Livingston counties, where Gilbert and her husband live.
How to turn a Liberal candidate against your cause. Where was security to drag these morons off the stage? Too afraid to offend….LMAO
