This is just brilliant:
The Canadian Minister of Defence has a dead-on sense of humor
Adopt A Terrorist -This is BRILLIANT ! ‘
I CAN’T IMAGINE ANYONE IN THE CURRENT USA OR UK CHAIN-OF-COMMAND COMPOSING SUCH A BRILLIANT RESPONSE!
Adopt a Terrorist.- Too Good to Miss. The Canadians know how to handle complaints. Here is an example.
A Canadian female liberal wrote a lot of letters to the Canadian government, complaining about the treatment of captive insurgents (terrorists) being held in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities. She demanded a response to her letter.
She received back the following reply:
National Defence Headquarters
M Gen George R. Pearkes Bldg., 15 NT
101 Colonel By Drive
Ottawa , ON K1A 0K2
Dear Concerned Citizen,
Thank you for your recent letter expressing your profound concern of treatment of the Taliban and Al Qaeda terrorists captured by Canadian Forces, who were subsequently transferred to the Afghanistan Government and are currently being held by Afghan officials in Afghanistan National Correctional System facilities.
Our administration takes these matters seriously and your opinions were heard loud and clear here in Ottawa .. You will be pleased to learn, thanks to the concerns of citizens like yourself, we are creating a new department here at the Department of National Defence, to be called ‘Liberals Accept Responsibility for Killers’ program, or L.A.R.K. for short.
In accordance with the guidelines of this new program, we have decided, on a trial basis, to divert several terrorists and place them in homes of concerned citizens such as yourself, around the country, under those citizens personal care. Your personal detainee has been selected and is scheduled for transportation under heavily armed guard to your residence in Toronto next Monday.
Ali Mohammed Ahmed bin Mahmud is your detainee, and is to be cared for pursuant to the standards you personally demanded in your letter of complaint. You will be pleased to know that we will conduct weekly inspections to ensure that your standards of care for Ahmed are commensurate with your recommendations.
Although Ahmed is a sociopath and extremely violent, we hope that your sensitivity to what you described as his ‘attitudinal problem’ will help him overcome those character flaws. Perhaps you are correct in describing these problems as mere cultural differences. We understand that you plan to offer counseling and home schooling, however, we strongly recommend that you hire some assistant caretakers.
Please advise any Jewish friends, neighbours or relatives about your house guest, as he might get agitated or even violent, but we are sure you can reason with him. He is also expert at making a wide variety of explosive devices from common household products, so you may wish to keep those items locked up, unless in your opinion, this might offend him. Your adopted terrorist is extremely proficient in hand-to-hand combat and can extinguish human life with such simple items as a pencil or nail clippers. We advise that you do not ask him to demonstrate these skills either in your home or wherever you choose to take him while helping him adjust to life in our country.
Ahmed will not wish to interact with you or your daughters except sexually, since he views females as a form of property, thereby having no rights, including refusal of his sexual demands. This is a particularly sensitive subject for him.
You also should know that he has shown violent tendencies around women who fail to comply with the dress code that he will recommend as more appropriate attire. I’m sure you will come to enjoy the anonymity offered by the burka over time. Just remember that it is all part of respecting his culture and religious beliefs’ as described in your letter.
You take good care of Ahmed and remember that we will try to have a counsellor available to help you over any difficulties you encounter while Ahmed is adjusting to Canadian culture.
Thanks again for your concern. We truly appreciate it when folks like you keep us informed of the proper way to do our job and care for our fellow man. Good luck and God bless you.
Minister of National Defence

To come from being down 3-1 is miraculous in and of itself. For the Cubs to do it in the way they did is just iconic and phenomenal. This might be the best story about the Cubs and their win that I read.
It was Epic. Magnificent. Spectacular. Historic. Stupendous. Just fucking AWESOME!
Ready for a dynasty? There’s always next year! Glad I got to share the experience with Sal and a bunch of Cubs faithful at a bar that was fully engaged.

The shooting in Texas at a Muhammed cartoon contest brought on this story on Fox News that I very much doubt you would see on any other site. It warns potential jihadists that Americans won’t just sit around while you show up to commit acts of terrorism and mayhem.
Just remember, if you excercise your first amendment rights, someone may well want to excercise their second amendment rights…What a country!

I submit that teens are dangerous and laws should be enacted banning teens and requiring background checks for all people interested in obtaining teens…

A suggestion has been made to have taxpayers foot an $1,100 bill for the installation of security cameras to protect Rush Limbaugh’s bust from being vandalized in the Missouri State Capitol Building. I believe a cheaper security method would be to locate the Rush Limbaugh bust in a simple concrete toilet facility with a padlocked door. Barred windows, to prevent vandalism, should be installed on the far “right wing” to enable viewing of the bust.

I didn’t see this in the American sites, maybe I just missed it. I always find interesting stories from all over the world on the BBC that are not even touched on in American media, left or right leaning. Americans are too interested in who won American Idol or other network reality show or watching trials of assholes that don’t matter one hoot in hell… (Myself excluded as I refuse these shit shows and pseudo news events)
