Atheist Mistakes Roommate for Jesus, Attacks Him and Demands Godless Lawyer

In Florida, self-proclaimed atheist Gustav Pothoff, 51, doesn’t seem to be too good at recognizing people. That’s because apparently his roommate, Raymond Hernandez, looked enough like Jesus Christ for Pothoff to attack him—according to police—with a glass cup and butter knife. Now Pothoff is claiming he has a right to a court-appointed attorney who shares his godless views, according to a local news source. But the judge isn’t buying it, saying that Pothoff has to pay for his own lawyer if he insists on finding someone like-minded. Pothoff was arrested Monday and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Huffington Post. The police officer at the scene of the incident reported:More

DAYS OF LOT – Sex With Robots: Sodom and Gomorrah Never Dreamed of This Immorality

If the sexual equality wars trouble you—if you’re concerned about little boys using the little girls’ restrooms in elementary school or the bigger boys using the bigger girls’ showers in high school or even Facebook’s confusing 51 new gender options—there’s yet another disturbing futuristic reality to consider. Tauriq Moosa penned an article for United Kingdom paper The Guardian that takes all human limits off sexual identity—and even suggests sexual intercourse with non humans. No, I’m not talking about bestiality, another extremely disturbing trend in the immorality scene. I’m talking about sex with robots. The article, “Robots and Sex: Creepy or Cool?” suggests that “sex with robots may currently be restricted to fiction, but with advances in technology this could eventually change. Despite how some may react, this is something that should be accepted, maybe even embraced.” Wait, what? It’s about 10 days too late to be an April Fool’s joke, though the notion is pure folly. Moosa suggests that books, music and other forms of media have gone digital. People work virtually and form relationships online. Refrigerators remind us to order groceries online. Considering all this, he sees no “massive leap” to sex with robots.More

Dozens evacuated in Wyoming town as ground slips


JACKSON, Wyo.
 — Local officials and dozens of evacuees kept anxious watch Thursday on a slowly sliding hillside that threatened to take out several homes and businesses in this resort town. They also had an eye on the weather, hoping no rain or snow triggers a sudden, massive release of dirt and rock. Forecasters predicted a 20 to 30 percent chance of rain and snow this weekend. People remained evacuated, since Wednesday, from 46 houses and apartment units. Authorities were escorting people back to their homes, temporarily, to fetch belongings. ”We’re just wanting to make sure we have everyone out in case there’s some kind of catastrophic release of the hillside,” Assistant Town Manager Roxanne Robinson said Thursday. “Even if it continues to be slow, it’s going to be disruptive for access.” More

UNHCR concerned over Christian attacks in Central African Republic

The UN refugee agency has expressed extreme concern over reports of Christian militiamen in the Central African Republic (CAR) attacking civilians fleeing the violence. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) spokesperson, Melissa Fleming, said Friday that the agency has registered four wounded refugees in Cameroon in recent days, one with a gunshot in the chest and three of them seriously hacked with machetes. Reports indicated the anti-Balaka groups were blocking main roads and attacking civilians trying to flee the violence in the CAR, forcing them to take more dangerous alternative routes across the border. This is while UN officials said Thursday that nearly 15,000 Muslim residents have reportedly been besieged in the CAR’s capital of Bangui by Christian militia amid their persisting trail of killing and looting of more Muslims. The government has acknowledged that it can do little to protect Muslims still in danger, with many questioning whether international troops could fight off a separatist attempt by armed groups. The CAR has been experiencing deadly unrest since December last year, when Christian militia launched coordinated attacks against the mostly Muslim Seleka group that toppled the government in March 2013. PressTV

 

 

STOCKS CONTINUE COLLAPSE.

U.S. stocks declined sharply for a second session Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average on track for its first weekly drop in four, after JPMorgan Chase posted disappointing earnings and Gap reported and a decline in sales. ”So far it does not appear to be so much fundamental as a turn in sentiment,” said Russ Koesterich, BlackRock’s global chief investment strategist, who attributes the recent selloff in high-flying shares to “forced liquidation by hedge funds.” More

More women turn to small dogs instead of childbirth.

America’s next generation of youngsters should be called “Generation Rex.” If you’re wondering why playgrounds around the city are so quiet and dog runs are packed, a new report has an answer: More and more US women are forgoing motherhood and getting their maternal kicks by owning handbag-size canines. Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that a big drop in the number of babies born to women ages 15 to 29 corresponds with a huge increase in the number of tiny pooches owned by young US women, reports the business-news site Quartz. Dog-crazy New York ladies told The Post that they aren’t surprised by the findings — and that they happily gave up diaper changes, temper tantrums and college funds for the easy affection of their doggy “child.” More

Pope Francis calls abortion ‘abominable crime’ in strongest remarks to date…

Human life is “sacred and inviolable” and “every civil law is based on the recognition of the first and most fundamental right, the right to life,” Pope Francis told an Italian pro-life organization today. The pope thanked the Movimento per la Vita, one of Italy’s leading political pro-life groups, for their work, urging them to continue “with courage and love” for life “in all its phases.”  “It is therefore necessary to reiterate the strongest opposition to any direct attack on life, especially innocent and defenseless, and her unborn child in the womb is the innocent par excellence,” the pope told the gathering of politicians and pro-life activists at the Vatican today. “If you look at life as something that is consumed,” the pope said, “it will also be something that sooner or later you can throw away, with abortion to begin with.” Human life, however, is “a gift from God” and if it is accepted as such, “then you have before you a valuable and intangible asset, to be protected by all means and not to be discarded.” More

HEAVILY-ARMED FEDS SURROUND NEVADA RANCH

A 20-year dispute between a Nevada rancher and federal rangers over illegal cattle grazing erupted into an Old West-style showdown on the open range this week, even prompting self-proclaimed members of militia groups from across the country to join the rancher in fighting what they say is U.S. “tyranny.” What began as a legal fight between longtime rancher Cliven Bundy and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management has escalated as Bundy kept his cattle on the federal land, and the government has responded by beginning roundups of the livestock. A confrontation teetered on violence Wednesday when Bundy family members and dozens of supporters angrily confronted a group of rangers holding Tasers and barking dogs on leashes near Bunkerville, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas. Federal officials say a police dog was kicked and officers were assaulted. More

 

Amazon offers employees up to $5,000 to quit

Amazon warehouse workers who hate their job and are eyeing the exit now have a lucrative payout offer. Online retail giant Amazon.com is offering its employees up to $5,000 if they quit, Chief Executive Jeffrey Bezos wrote in a letter to shareholders. Bezos spoke about a program offered to employees called “Pay to Quit” and credited Zappos, another online retailer known for its progressive human resources style, for the idea. The program is offered once a year to employees at its warehouses. The first year the offer is for $2,000. After that, it rises $1,000 every year until it reaches $5,000. More

 

Openly Gay Republican Reveals how he is pushing for Public Acceptance of “Gay Republicans”

You may not be aware that Fred Karger ran for president in 2012. He was on the ballot in only a handful of states. He wasn’t allowed to take part in any televised debates. The slogan on his campaign buttons and flying discs alluded to the central predicament of his candidacy: “Fred Who?” But winning was never the point for Karger. Being openly gay, he was “a different kind” of Republican, as he puts it in a new documentary about his ups and downs on the  campaign trail. He had hoped to “open the flap to the tent and let everyone in.“ Nearly four years after first hitting the trail in New Hampshire, Karger is back in the state this week, showing the documentary at high schools, colleges and film festivals.  As the film, “Fred,” makes clear, Republicans were not always welcoming to Karger, despite his background as an adviser on nine presidential campaigns, including those of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. On Wednesday, Karger spoke to The Huffington Post about life as an openly gay Republican candidate, coming out in his 50s, and the likelihood of America electing an openly gay candidate to the country’s highest office. More

Japan Prepares to Shoot North Korean Missiles Out of the Sky

Pyongyang may fire ballistic missiles in Japan’s direction this month, but Tokyo believes it’s ready to knock down whatever North Korea sends its way … as long as there aren’t too many of them.
Like a batter waiting for a wicked pitch that might just hit his head, the Japanese are on alert—full scale military alert—waiting for the nuclear-armed crazies in North Korea to throw a missile in their direction. The Japanese think it’s coming soon, and they’re letting it be known (but quietly and in contradictory leaks) that they plan to knock it out of the park. More 

Sen. Sessions: ‘Deliberate Plan by President’ to Collapse U.S. Law Enforcement System

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) said today that Americans need to stand up to “a deliberate plan by the president of the United States” to collapse the nation’s law enforcement system regarding illegal immigration.  “Our law enforcement system is in a state of collapse, and it’s a deliberate plan by the president of the United States, and it’s wrong. And, people need to be aware of it and need to stand up to it and I believe the American people are beginning to do so.” Sen. Sessions rebuked U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and Vice President Joe Biden for their pro-amnesty efforts: “So, you come into the country illegally and the attorney general of the United States declares that these individuals have a civil right to amnesty. How can this possibly be: the chief law enforcement officer in America? More

Louisiana Bill to Make Bible State Book Clears House Committee


BATON ROUGE, La. –
 A bill that would make the Bible the state book of Louisiana was approved by a House committee on Thursday, sending the measure on to the full House of Representatives. As previously reported, Representative Thomas Carmody (R-Shreveport) recently filed HB 503 at the request of Shreveport resident Randy Dill. Dill told local television station KTBS that he has had the desire to make the Bible the state book since 1988, but could not find a lawmaker to help make it happen—until now. “The Bible was their main inspiration along with our forefathers—Washington and all of them,” he stated. “They looked to it for their inspiration for our country. They called upon God to help us.” Carmody’s original bill sought to make a specific copy of the Bible in state possession the official state book. More

Nova Scotia Power is warning snowmobilers in the Cape Breton Highlands to watch out for power lines and poles because snowdrifts in some areas are so high they reach overhead power lines Snowmobilers say the situation is worst along Route 755 going up to the Wreck Cove area. It looks to me like the snow slid down and caused this because I’ve never seen it this way in this area before,” said Fred Lewis, who has been snowmobiling for nearly 40 years. ”Usually when you come down here it’s pretty flat but it seems like the snow, maybe a mini-avalanche came down the mountain there and just the snow came up to the wires.” High volumes of snow have increased the height of the trail so power lines are now level with the snow. They look like fence posts sticking up through the snow along the trail. Lewis said the snow is six to nine metres deep in some parts of the Cape Breton Highlands. The Snowmobilers Association of Nova Scotia said Nova Scotia Power had issued a warning to stay at least four metres away from the power lines. More

Huge dust cloud sweeps over Alicante

A beach on the Costa Blanca was smothered by a thick grey cloud on Tuesday, causing concern among tourists and residents. Footage of the phenomenon went viral in just a few hours as viewers speculated about the cause. In the video, the dense cloud can be seen sweeping over a beach in Alicante on the Spanish coast on a sunny day. While it may look like think smoke, several viewers suggested the cloud was a type of fog common in the area of Valencia, occurring when cold sea air mixes with hot air from the interior. Travel

Italian navy warns of ‘biblical exodus’ in Mediterranean

The number of migrants sailing from Africa to Italy resembles a “biblical exodus”, the head of the Italian navy has said. Adml Giuseppe De Giorgi said his ships had rescued 18,546 migrants, including Syrians and sub-Saharan Africans, since October, following the deaths of 364 migrants when their boat caught fire. The peak came this week when 4,000 were intercepted by the navy in 48 hours. Angelino Alfano, Italy’s interior minister, has claimed up to 600,000 migrants are preparing to sail from Africa as weather improves in the Mediterranean. Adml De Giorgi said Italy was deploying large helicopter carriers, frigates, drones and helicopters carrying infra-red sensors to monitor the seas. “The phenomenon is enormous, each migrant ship now contains 200 to 300 and they are also coming in rough seas, so we need frigates to pick them up,” he said. More

 

The world economy may well be stuck in neutral for years

It is now nearly seven years since the start of the financial crisis, yet despite growing evidence in America and Britain of a return to relative normality, something remains profoundly broken at the heart of the world economy. One manifestation of this – much discussed among the officials, finance ministers and central bankers gathered in Washington this week for the spring meeting of the International Monetary Fund – is the persistence of unnaturally low interest rates. Sometimes, economic developments creep up on you almost unawares – and then, all of a sudden, they are the established reality. One such phenomenon is now almost universal: even in Spain, long-term rates have fallen to the point where they are almost as low as in the US – a dramatic turnaround given that as recently as two years ago, yields on Spanish government bonds were off the scale over fears of a sovereign debt default. Even Greece, so bad a basket case that most of its sovereign debt had to be written off, has this week been able to tap the markets for new money at rates of close to 5 per cent. Two years ago, Greek bonds were yielding six times that. Optimists hail this change as evidence that Europe is finally out of the woods. To some degree this is true. A series of 11th-hour interventions by the European Central Bank (ECB) – at just the point that it looked as if it was all over for the beleaguered euro – have succeeded in calming the crisis. But it is also indicative of a much more worrying possibility: the emergence of a permanently low-growth, low-inflation, or even deflationary world. More

 

 

As Republicans push for new voting restrictions around the country, a handful of Democrats have coalesced around an impromptu idea: placing a photo on Social Security cards. Former U.N. ambassador and civil rights activist Andrew Young — who chairs a nonpartisan voting rights group called Why Tuesday? — buttonholed President Obama and two of his predecessors in Texas this week in an effort to win their support for the concept. Former presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter endorsed the idea, while the White House declined to comment. “It’s just an idea whose time may have come,” said Young, a former Atlanta mayor who was in Austin to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act at the Lyndon B. Johnson presidential library. “What we’re saying is, everybody’s got a Social Security card. But with all of this identity theft going on, it’s a good idea to have your picture on it.” The proposal drew praise from some election experts but also prompted immediate concerns on both sides of the political spectrum — highlighting the controversy that still surrounds voting rights issues. More

VATICAN TO USE HAWK TO PROTECT DOVES OF PEACE

Credere, a Catholic weekly, reports that the Vatican has decided to employ a hawk to protect the Pope’s doves, after two doves were killed by a crow and seagull on January 26th.  The doves were promptly killed by the birds when two children released them from a window above St. Peter’s Square. At various times of the year, the doves are set free to fly as visual icons of peace. ”Sylvia,” the Harris Hawk that was trained in northern Italy, will reportedly be used by the Swiss Guards. The bird’s four-foot wingspan is expected to frighten possible predators threatening the doves. It is not uncommon in Italy for birds of prey to be used to deal with the threat of pigeons, whether at airports, football stadiums, or the Colosseum to guard against pigeon droppings. More

 

FAMILY DOLLAR TO SHUTTER 370 STORES; PRICES TOO HIGH IN BAD ECONOMY

Deep discount retailer Family Dollar announced on Thursday it will begin laying off workers and closing 370 stores nationwide after suffering a 35% drop in profits last quarter. Analysts cite competition from Dollar General and Dollar Tree as contributing to Family Dollar’s cost-cutting move. In response, Family Dollar says it plans to lower prices on 1,000 items to remain competitive with its price sensitive lower-income customers. ”We are not satisfied with our results, and we hold ourselves accountable for improving our performance,” Chief Executive Howard Levine told the Wall Street Journal. “To that end, we have initiated an in-depth business review to identify opportunities to strengthen our value proposition, increase operational efficiencies and improve financial performance.” Reuters notes that Family Dollar’s customers “live paycheck to paycheck” and its higher prices have made “customers balk” as shoppers have sought deeper discounts elsewhere amid the bleak U.S. economy. The Journal concludes, “The discounter’s customers have remained under pressure from a sluggish economy, which has weighed on sales of more discretionary items.” More

Nato satellite images reveal huge build up of Russian troops at Ukrainian frontier

Nato presented satellite photographs on Thursday it said showed Russian deployments of 40,000 troops near the Ukrainian frontier along with tanks, armoured vehicles, artillery and aircraft ready for action. “This is a force that is very capable, at high readiness, and, as we have illustrated through the imagery, is close to routes and lines of communication,” British Brigadier Gary Deakin said at a briefing at Nato military headquarters at Mons in southern Belgium. “It has the resources to be able to move quickly into Ukraine if it was ordered to do so,” he said. If Russian political leaders took a decision to send forces into Ukraine, the first Russian forces could be on the move within 12 hours. Nato has spotted Russian forces at more than 100 different sites close to the Ukraine border, he said. The Western alliance showed the pictures supplied by commercial satellite imagery firm DigitalGlobe to bolster its warnings of a Russian military build-up that could threaten Ukraine. More

Putin Says Further Violations by Ukraine Will Compel Russia to Cut Off Gas

Russian energy giant Gazprom will be compelled to switch over to prepaid gas deliveries to Ukraine or completely cut off natural gas supplies, should the country further violate its terms of payment, Russian President Vladimir Putin wrote Thursday in an open letter to 18 European leaders. “Gazprom is compelled to switch over to advance payment for gas deliveries, and in the event of further violation of the conditions of payment, will completely or partially cease gas deliveries,” Putin explained, saying this was undoubtedly an extreme measure. Talk of a gas cutoff came as Ukraine again defaulted on its gas debt in March, swelling past the November record of $1.45 billion. Putin explained that Gazprom’s decision to switch to upfront payments for gas stemmed from Ukraine’s inability to pay its debts, despite unprecedented price cuts that Kiev had been recently enjoying. “I would like to draw your attention to the fact that in March there was still a discount price applied, that is [the price was] $268.50 per 1,000 cubic meters of gas. And even at that price, Ukraine did not pay a single dollar,” the president said. More

Wall Street crash ‘even worse’ than 1987 is coming, says Marc Faber

Don’t be surprised if four horsemen start riding down Wall Street. US technology stocks suffered their sharpest dive in more than two years on Thursday night, setting the scene for an equities apocalypse, Swiss investor Marc Faber says. Dr Faber is predicting a 1987-type stock market crash this year – only it will be worse. He told CNBC that the pain in the internet and biotechnology sectors was just getting started, and the market was beginning to realise that US Federal Reserve was a “clueless organisation”. “I think it’s very likely that we’re seeing, in the next 12 months, an ’87-type of crash,” Dr Faber told CNBC. “And I suspect it will be even worse.” Dr Faber’s prediction comes after another high profile investor, Jeremy Grantham, said last month the ”next bust will be unlike any other”. The US technology-heavy Nasdaq plummeted by 3.1 per cent on Thursday night (US time), its biggest one-day drop since November 2011. A sharp sell-off in biotechnology and momentum names, including Gilead Sciences and TripAdvisor weighed on the market, fuelling fears among inventors of a broader pullback.More

 

10 killed when truck crosses median, rams into students’ bus in California

A FedEx truck crossed a median and slammed head-on into a bus carrying students in Northern California, killing 10 people, authorities said Friday. The collision Thursday evening killed both drivers, five students and three chaperones, said Lt. Bruce Carpenter with the California Highway Patrol. The crash resulted in a fire that engulfed the truck and bus in flames, spewing black smoke into the sky. ”I went outside, and everything was in flames already,” a local resident, Luis Lopez, told CNN affiliate KXTB. “There were a couple of explosions after that.” The reason the FedEx truck crossed the median remains under investigation, the Highway Patrol said. The investigation could take months. More

Your share of the federal debt is $106,000

American workers would have to cough up a one-time “debt reduction fee” of $106,000 to pay off the nation’s debt that has grown 58 percent under President Obama, according to Harvard University’s Institute of Politics annual report on the USA. The 91-page report provided to Secrets pegged the nation’s debt at $16.7 trillion, up from the $10.6 trillion inherited by Obama. “The debt has grown so quickly because of large and repeated annual deficits in federal spending,” said the report. What’s more, the Annual Report of the USA, from the student at the Harvard Political Review and done in partnership with the American Education Foundation, found that food stamp usage has surged 77 percent during the recession and that Social Security benefits will be slashed 23 percent starting in 2033 unless Congress and the White House institute sweeping reforms. More
