  1. What A Hoot says:

    Wow. Must have had my head in the sand or something….just now noticed the sidebar section linking to Sol’s links. Now I don’t have to do a search trying to find this or that he mentioned to show the DH. I was making waaaay to much work for myself!

  2. We got reblogged over on an arabic site this morning, most likely from Qatar, and they loved our “Christmas is the greatest blasphemy for muslims” video, which they completely agreed with. They especially liked the photo of the dog licking the fake rattlesnake. They reposted it, but for a completely different reason than we did. They thought it was proof that dogs were evil, or something. We posted it because it was cute, and we love doggies. The idiot who reposted had an arabic username, but the english alias was “freehugs3.” How’s that for effective taqiyya? You can see his adorable gravitar up above in the “Likes” list.

    “Whether cringe-worthy or laugh-out-loud ridiculous, ask yourself: ‘Is this really what we want our legal system to look like?’” said Lisa A. Rickard, President of the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform. “Abusive lawsuits both big and small take a collective toll on our society and our economy. We should resolve to make 2014 a year where lawsuits are a last resort, not a first reaction.”
