    “SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — A city board on Thursday gave a Muslim group the go-ahead to remove six crosses from the roof and spires of a century-old former Catholic church so the now-vacant Gothic structure can be used as a mosque…”

    Well, I certainly cannot ID the animal. A canine of some sort? One that sits on its’ hind legs and handles food with its’ front paws? Weird.

    A few days ago, Ben Swann reported on an audio recording of Turkish leaders planning a false flag operation in Syria.

    In February, Assistant US Secretary of State Victoria Nuland’s phone conversation, regarding the political crisis in Ukraine, was leaked, for which she issued an unrepentant apology. Yesterday, reports surfaced of a conversation between two Russian Ambassadors that discussed a possible future invasion of the United States and Eastern Europe.

    In yet another display of Islamic “peace” and tolerance, a young Christian girl who was delivering medicine to an elderly woman in a local church, was pulled from her car then beaten and stabbed to death by an angry Muslim mob. Eyewitnesses say that her crime was especially heinous – she had a cross hanging from the rear view mirror of her vehicle!

    • When I first read that and followed the link, I fully expected the posting date to be April 1st, and I was surprised to see it was April 5th!

      But then as I reached the end, I saw:

    (The Blaze) – A Missouri-based gun manufacturer announced this week that it will release a line of “New York Compliant” rifles, a market-based response to the Empire State’s strict new gun laws.

    “With the continual trampling of the 2nd Amendment in New York, Black Rain Ordnance is proud to annoaunce their ‘New York Compliant’ rifles,” the group said in a statement on its website. “These rifles feature all of the quality and craftsmanship of the standard BRO-lines, but with the added features that allow for legal possession.”

    Features that make Black Rain Ordnance’s new rifles compliant with New York’s guns laws include: No pistol grip, a non-threaded muzzle fixed stock, 10-round low capacity approved magazine and a Lo-Pro gas block “without the evil bayonet lug.”

  7. Hillary struggles to list any accomplishments while secretary of state, so we’ll help her out.

    Everyone is complaining about sky high food prices. Why are they going nuts? The fault is mostly due to harsh weather conditions of drought, vicious storms, floods, soggy soil, hail, frost and ice, and ferocious winds. Escalating extremes have beaten fruits, vegetables and farm animals to death around the world and we’re paying for it – literally. In the last 3 years, America was slammed with 32 multi-billion dollar disasters that for the most part, hit during crop-growing seasons. The 2012 Drought / Heatwave alone took a $30 billion bite out of peoples’ pockets.

    weather extremes

    For the past three years drought has decimated Texas cattle herds by over 2 million head. Now California’s cattle are getting smacked. This is small potatoes by comparison, but last year South Dakota lost 30,000 head – frozen in a single November blizzard. Our neighbor to the south, Mexico, lost 1.7 million head in 2011 due to drought. There are other cattle losses as well, but there’s not time to document them all.

    It used to be that cattle herds took about 3 years to replenish. Experts stated this week it could take the rest of this decade – 6 years – to rebuild America’s beef and dairy livestock. That’s double the norm. Meanwhile, food prices continue to ramp up. That’s ifno more catastrophes descend. How much do you want to bet on a lucky break? In the first 3 months of this year, 1/3 of the U.S. is in USDA-declared crop disaster areas.

    Gas prices are moving up again with Brent Crude kissing a $100/barrel yesterday. It costs more money to move produce, dairy and meat from farmer to fork. Also, more countries are eating better so farmers ship more food to other nations. This puts a squeeze on our supply. Then there’s the idiocy of bio-fuels, which takes another bite from food stocks. However, the most direct and dire cause of rising food prices is unquestionably weather disasters.

    “Very interesting facts on two very different ladies. Sarah Palin

  10. It’s always time for a Shiner!

  11. At first, I figured this was a mangy bear cub or a coatimundi, but the ears, long tail and paws are all wrong. Do YOU know what this was? I really don’t think it was a raccoon, but could be.

      Similar deal near me. It was going on for a long time.

      • They had to remind him that it wasn’t “his” cathedral. Sounds familiar. We’ve got a real asshole pastor right now who would totally build his own castle with his own scotch distillery if we could afford it. Guy’s a real dictator. I’ve been feuding with him for 5 years. He’s gone so far as to have the local sheriff’s office harass me. I call him the douchebag priest, and I haven’t done any sound processing on his voice yet during sermons (while running the sound board), but I’ve been sorely tempted.

        • barnslayer says:

          The guy in the Rockville Centre archdiocese tossed a dozen or more nuns out of their dormitory building in order to construct his luxury home. My friend Jeff worked for him p/t while in college. He said the place was packed with high end stuff.
          Our pastor doesn’t live all that high but travels a ton (vacations). His major failing is wanting to run a bunch of churches. If real estate was affordable he’d definitely go the mega church route. Now I’ve got no problem with planting churches but you’re supposed to let go of them.. not create a chain store.

  12. I’m surprised that no one has commented about the bumper sticker of the Jeep in this post’s picture…

    “If you can read this, turn me over”

    • I get a chuckle whenever I see one of those on a Jeep around here, because it’s actually not uncommon in the backcountry to see vehicles flipped over, being winched back over by a good samaritan, after struggling to get around a boulder on a steep, washed-out, 4×4 road. Less common, but more horrifying, is seeing a jeep rolling over and over and over on it’s way down a steep scree field near one of the scary mountain passes near Ouray or Telluride in the San Juans.
