"The man, a resident of an otherwise quiet neighborhood in Atascocita, Texas, originally called 911 to report two females who were at his door and throwing rocks at the windows, trying to gain entry into his home. Not long after, he called back to notify emergency responders that the females had gained entry inside his home and that he was armed with a loaded shotgun – and obviously not hesitant to use it."
“[The bushes and trees] were overgrown. But that’s certainly not a criminal offense,” Holloway tells Local 8 News.
“It’s not right,” she said. “Why would you put me in jail with child molesters, and people who’ve done real crimes, because I haven’t maintained my yard.”
She says she was never read her rights nor told she could have a lawyer present.
“I feel like I’m being bullied,” she said.
A lot is being made about a recent Facebook story out of Missouri. Republican Debbie Dunnegan is being attacked, ostensibly, for calling for the assassination of President Obama.
Here’s what she said on Facebook that got all the drama started.“I have a question for all my friends who have served or are currently serving in our military … having not put on a uniform nor taken any type military oath, there has to be something that I am just not aware of. But I cannot and do not understand why no action is being taken against our domestic enemy. I know he is supposedly the commander in chief, but the Constitution gives you the authority. What am I missing? Thank you for your bravery and may God keep you safe.”FN)!

The Elephants and The MulesOnce upon a time, in a faraway place was a land of elephants. The elephants spent their days walking from one lovely place to another eating the grass which grew in abundance there. They lived with their families and lived contented lives.The Elephants and The Mules by katiejo911
One day, the elephants saw a great cloud of smoke off to the West. It billowed upward until flames appeared at the base of the firestorm and the elephants were frightened. But the fire stopped when it got to the Great River. They were safe.
A week or two later, the elephants started seeing mules coming from the West. They were tired and hungry, some with burn marks and scorches. They told the elephants the same story, that they lived in their land eating their grasses when a huge thunderstorm came through and lightening started a voracious grass fire which spread all the way to the Great River. Many mules had been killed, many more injured. T
SATIRE: College Requires Written ConsentSATIRE: College Requires Written Consent by BlameThe1st
College Students Required To Offer Written Sexual Consent
College code requires students to sign and submit waivers before engaging in any sexual contact, or else risk being disciplined for sexual misconduct.
It was your typical college romance. John and Jane met at the beginning of their freshmen year at Justinuther University, and over the next few weeks, began to know each other a little better.
By the following semester, after attending a campus party, the two decided to take their relationship to the next level.
Jane invited John over to her dorm room, where she made the first move and asked him if he wanted to sleep with her. John complied, and the two had sex.
Despite both of them drinking at the party earlier that evening, both were sober enough to offer each other their consent and use protection.
The next morning, neither of them were ashamed of what they had done, and both were willing to do it again in the near future.
This is where the

Haunted House Scares Guests With Ebola, ISIS
This haunted house trades the ghosts, zombies, and ghouls for media boogeymen such as Ebola, global warming, and the Koch Brothers.
Tim Russet Potato
Every Halloween, the abandoned house at the end of Main Street has been used by the local theater group for their annual haunted house.
However, this year, instead of being haunted by imaginary boogeymen like ghosts, ghouls, and goblins, the house is hosting imaginary media boogeymen such as ISIS, Ebola, and the Koch Brothers.
The decision to update the house’s haunts was made in light of recent fear-mongering within the mainstream media, which proved to be harsh competition for traditional scares, the trope’s leader, Dr. Rector, claimed.
“When you have cable news channels pumping the public with fear 24/7 over Ebola and ISIS, suddenly classic horror monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein no longer scare people,” Rector said.
But rather than be
Everything wrong with the USAEverything wrong with the USA: A Wry Look At An Old MythEverything wrong with the USA by ComradeSch
“The USA is the best country in the world!”
No, actually, it is not the #1 country in the world… Unless you count defence spending, incarcerated persons per capita, and Christian fundamentalists.
According to US Economy, a division of About.com that deals with economic news related to the US Economy:
“The U.S. military budget is $756.4 billion for FY 2015. Military spending is greater than Medicare ($529 billion), Medicaid ($331 billion), or the interest payment on the debt ($251). It's also more than the three next largest departments combined: Health and Human Services ($73.1 billion), Education ($68.6 billion) and Housing and Urban Development ($32.6 billion).”

Florida Bans Zephyrhills Bottled Water
Allegations over recent statewide sinkholes leads to ban of in-state bottled water company products.
Tim Russet Potato
Florida residents and visitors who prefer their water bottled will have to settle for out-of-state brands. That's because the Sunshine State has banned the sale of Zephyrhills bottled water.
The bill banning Zephyrhills products passed through the Florida House and Senate earlier this week and is being sent to the desk of Gov. Rick Scott, who is expected to sign the bill into law.
Once passed, the law will prohibit the sale of all water bottled by Zephyrhills within the state of Florida. No other bottled water brands will be affected.
Zephyrhills, which sources its water in-state from Crystal Springs, was targeted by Florida lawmakers due to allegations that its water-collection methods have contributed to sinkholes within the state.
Florida has been the location of three major sinkholes within the past

Red Humour- America, Invade the Vatican!Swiss Guard: 135 Members, No Tanks, Artillery or AircraftRed Humour- America, Invade the Vatican! by ComradeSch
Al-Quaeda: About 25,000 members, Has IED's, rockets, and potentially WMD's.
Vatican: One of the richest organizations in the World (has been collecting gold for 1,600 years). Wealth nearly incalculable
Al-Quaeda: Relies on stealing enemy weapons and Molotov cocktails to sustain combat. Main resource is crude oil.
Vatican: 100 acres of land.
Al-Quaeda: Has no specific territory, operating globally.
So, my friends, why note invade the Vatican, steal all the gold, and sell it off? After all, with that kind of money, you could BUY the entire Middle East and stop wasting lives!

Petition- Please take a look.I wrote a petition to my nation's Prime Minister, asking for one simple concession: To allow minor political parties to be given a voice in the legislature. After all, the point of a political party is to unite with other people of the same ideology to show that you believe in it. So, it's defeating the point to have a bloc of parties tha do the same thing and stifle other, more radical parties and keep them from having a say-and whether of the left or right wings, in my opinion, that is infringing on freedom of speech, and I won't stand for it.Petition- Please take a look. by ComradeSch
If you agree, sign my petition, and allow voting for minor parties, so the Canadian House of Commons can truly represent all Canadians, however moderate or extreme they are.
Love Me I'm a Liberal (Modern Version)“In every American community you have varying shades of political opinion, one of the shadiest of these is the Liberals. An outspoken group on many subjects, ten degrees to the left of centre in good times, ten degrees to the right of centre if it affects them personally.”- Phil OchsLove Me I'm a Liberal (Modern Version) by Skargill
I cried when they chased away Eddie Snowden
Tears ran down my spine
I cried when they sentenced Chelsea Manning
As though I lost a mother of mine
But Mumia got what was coming
I’m glad that he’s serving his time
So love me love me love me, I’m a Liberal
I go to Gay Marriage rallies
And sneer at the old DO-MA
I love Harry and Sidney and Sammy
I hope every Queer kid becomes a star
But don't talk about Liberation
That's going a little bit too far
So love me, love me, love me, I'm a liberal
I cheered when Obama was elected
My faith in the system restored
I’m glad the Black Bloc where thrown down
On the cell floor
I love blacks and all types of Latino’s

Polar Vortex Vexation, climate changeThis is a back-up piece to 'Polar Vortex the Movie'Polar Vortex Vexation, climate change by Kajm
The first piece is commentary on the ideological misuse of that particular weather system.
The second section contains a scientific breakdown of the Polar Vortex- and the FACT that it has been around... well, Forever.
(original here http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/01/13/weekly-climate-and-energy-news-roundup-119/ )
Climate Vortex: Dictionary examples of a vortex include a whirlpool, a cyclone, and a quagmire. In a slick promotional video, the President’s Chief Science Advisor, John Holdren, jumps into a quagmire. As illustrated in the Quote of the Week, Holdren blames the severe recent cold weather in the US on global warming. The claim is counterintuitive. One would think that in making such a video for the public, a presidential Science Advisor would carefully lay out the scientific argum

This is an actual conversation between :iconMaster-of-the-Boot: and a conservative, whom I will not name.
The Soviet Union built tanks, planes, missiles, statues, and space ships while their people struggled to find food, clothing, and shelter. Meanwhile, over in America, the lower classes were rising out of poverty, forming a large prosperous middle class, which the 1920s and 1950s became famous for.
The People's Republic of China remained mired in poverty through the entirety of Mao's tyrannical reign. It wasn't until the 1980s, when they had implemented capitalist reforms (following the Tienanmen Square riots) that China actually began to grow. Meanwhile, Hong Kong and Taiwan remained under capitalist control, and both joined the ranks of the prosperous 1st-world nations decades ago, while the PRC was still flopping around like a dying fish.
Furthermore, Korea provides the perfect example of what happens when you take a contiguo

Well, let's go back into MY childhood, as these reactionary puppets would think I've done.
-When I was three years old, I distinctly remember hearing about the core of the Earth being hot, and commenting, "So that's where Hell is?"
Yes, I was raised Seventh-Day Adventist. I became an atheist over time, and the initial exposure to atheism came from my father, when I was nine.
-I also distinctly remember thinking that Heaven in the clouds, too high for humans to find.
When I was nine, I took a flight from my island to Ft. St. John. And that showed me the upside of the clouds. I didn't see angels and shit there!
-I also remember distinctly saying that dictatorship would be a good option compared with the current system when I was ten. I REMEMBER BEING A FAR-RIGHTIST. What was my rationale for
Unionization and Inequality: A Research PaperGreetings all!Unionization and Inequality: A Research Paper by KnoFear
Now that I look at it, it really has been a while since I last posted something here. Needless to say, I’ve been working out some issues with this blog, along with struggling to get back into writing after an odd writer’s block. Regular posting will likely resume in the New Year, but to bide my time I’ll be posting my research paper I did for my economics of poverty class this past semester. It covers the link between unionization and inequality.
Unionization and Inequality: An Economic Analysis
Five years into an economic recession among most developed nations, the issues of income and wealth inequality have been brought to the forefront of economic discussion. A piece of debate centers of unionization rates within the nations in question, chiefly because some of these countries have escaped the hardest throes of economic suffering while others have fallen by the wayside. If a higher level of uni
On Both Fascism and SocialismOn Fascism, Socialism and the Objections to EachOn Both Fascism and Socialism by ComradeSch
As someone on the far Left, I often have to deal with people who have complete misconceptions or blame me for an event in history I had no hand in. Or someone goes and tries to insult me, and my neighbour’s cat seems to display more brainpower. Sometimes, people lump me in with Stalinists or Satanists, which is not the case at all. Some even call me a “Commie” and a “Nazi” in the same sentence (which I will smash down shortly here) But it’s also important to understand those on the Right, so as to understand why they believe what they do.
Often someone will say “I hate Communism! I will never forget (insert atrocities committed by the USSR/ China/Korea/Etc.)!” This dialogue often takes the form of the “Stalin Killed 50 Million People Card”, saying “Oh, well, Stalin killed 50 million people, so Communism is evil, oppressive and wrong”. THEY are wrong for a plethora of
Police State? What Police State?!Police State? What Police State?! by BlameThe1st
The vehicles pictured above are MRAPs, or Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicles. These 18-ton armored behemoths are fitted with gun turrets and bulletproof glass. Able to withstand roadside bombs, they were designed specifically for use in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
But now that the wars are dwindling down, what is the army to do with these things? Sell them to local law enforcement agencies, of course! And that’s exactly what the Defense Department is doing through a national military surplus program.
Perhaps even more frightening is that one of these MRAPs was sold to the Ohio State University's police department. You
The Creeping Devil: Russian NationalismGreetings all!The Creeping Devil: Russian Nationalism by KnoFear
This piece represents a conglomeration of work which I feel I may have overdone, in view of the length of time I used to write it. My return piece concerns the growing trend of Russian nationalism, a right-wing philosophy has been essentially the national policy of the Kremlin.
Russia for Russians: A Brief History
Russian nationalism has been a mix of historic attitudes and Orthodox Church support for centuries now. In the past, tsars manipulated the xenophobia of Russian peasants generally to stoke support for non-Western varieties of modernization or expansion. Given that Russia was harshly dealt with by Mongol invaders, it’s not hard to see where a general dislike of foreigners may have originated.
A radical sea change began with the October Revolution in 1917. Suddenly, the entirety of Russia (and soon, the Soviet Union) was now under the leadership of an internationalist
Typical Arguments of White Supremacists- RefutedMe: Why do we bother to hate our fellow humans, based on skin colour, race, language or sex? It's infinitely pointless, and perhaps one day we may realize.Typical Arguments of White Supremacists- Refuted by ComradeSch
White Supremacist: Actually WRONG moron! It goes far beyond skin color & in fact there are over 120 major differences not to mention the white mans brain is substantially bigger! These people's have been a scourge & a pestilence toe very single nation they come into, where have you been? Study your history. It was a majorly foolish mistake to introduce these people's into our society, there is no such thing as working integration. PERIOD!
Me: I noticed your reply to my comment, and perhaps it's my obligation to set you straight. 120 major differences? And I'm sure close to all of them are irrelevant. Brain's slightly larger? That does not decisively indicate lower intelligence. Someone can have a slightly smaller skull and yet have twice the amount of connections in the brain- Making him vastly more intelligent than YOU. Scourge and
