Are these things more important than edits to talking points? Judge for yourself.
1. Carbon pollution reaches historic highs, threatening human existence
2. The devastating impact of sequestration on kids, cancer patients and first responders.
3. Massive cuts to food stamps for the most vulnerable.
4. 1,100 workers die in a Bangladesh factory collapse, and American retailers continue business as usual.
5. 4,150 gun deaths from gun violence since Newtown.
Two significant events took place today. Both, ironically, were bombings.
One was the deaths of four Syrian officials killed by a bomb planted, and remotely detonated, by the Syrian opposition. This proved to the world that these people are not going to take Syrian government’s tank attacks any more.
The second was an attack on a bus carrying Israeli tourists in Bulgaria. This event brought back memories of the terrorist attacks of the 1970s. Back then Western Europe was being ripped apart by bombings.
Both of these attacks were directed at targets that would send messages. These messages were vastly different, but the outcomes maybe very similar. Both Syrian and Israeli governments will attempt to find the perpetrators.
However, considering the recent history, the Syrian government is most likely to find some civilians and kill them in retribution. While the Israeli government will do their best to find and punish the guilty.
Either way, these events will be worth following as they unravel in the next few days.
The book of stupid laws has a new entry.
Prediction: Fox “News” hires him to sing new theme song, “Are You Ready For Some Assholes?”
Did this stupid, shit-eating fuckface from the Westboro Baptist “Church” just call for picketing Steve Jobs’s funeral… by Tweeting it from a fucking iPhone?
Please let the end come soon for this noxious fuck and her flock.
