Amnesty and Cantor both DOA for 2014; HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER CANTOR DEFEATED IN PRIMARYCantor says "immigration reform could be an economic boon to this country." Brat responded to Cantor's baby-talk, saying immigration "lowers wages, adds to unemployment, and the taxpayer pays the tab for any benefits to folks coming in." -- Ann Coulter

In Billy Clinter and the Chamber of Semen, Billy realises that he splinched while he was apparating, which had never happened before. This is all the fault of Moaning Monica, the intern who haunts the anteroom at Housewhites and has the rare power of Parcelmouth, the ability to look into the eye of the Basilisk, the world's smallest snake, without being petrified.

These Early Examples Of Film Will Shock You The first American film ever made, Monkeyshines was the creation of William Dickson to test the Kinetograph format.

The Air Loom Similar gangs, Matthews said, were operating looms all over London to influence the thinking of the nation’s leaders. The tortures included “fluid locking,” “cutting soul from sense,” “stone making,” “thigh talking,” and “lobster-cracking,” which Matthews also described as “sudden death-squeezing”

Sultan Knish: Winning the War Waving around Bin Laden's head is a good way to distract them from the fact that the United States has lost the war in Afghanistan, that Obama's own strategy there failed badly and cost numerous American and British lives, and that we are turning the country over to the Taliban.

Educators Disease Reaching Epidemic Levels, Experts | William M. Briggs“There is no cure. Nothing in the pharmacopoeia has had the least impact,” he said. “There are some intriguing results with nicotine, which seems to act as a restorative in some of the patients. Unfortunately, part of the manifestation of the disease is an unreasoning, pathological horror of tobacco. We can’t get near most of the patients without they turn violent.”

"Tis a consummation devoutly to be wished"

[Update from the comments: As an actual former nuclear target analyst, I assure you that the destruction sequence in the video is much too slow. An accurate animation, from the same POV, would be:

1. Flash of blinding light that turned the entire screen pure white

2. Light fades to be replaced by dense smoke and flying debris, pretty much nothing else visible

3. Smoke and vapor clear (not quickly) to reveal absolute devastation.

But what there would not be a slow-rolling "wave" slogging outward from ground zero. It would be super-supersonic.

If the frame was wider view, you would also see flammables bust into fire well before the blast wave reached them since the infrared from the fireball would be intense and infrared travels at 186,000 miles per second. - D. Sensing]

There are so many rabbits popping up I don't know where to look, let alone to shoot:

Hillary, Cantor, Al Qaeda/Iraq, open borders; Just reading the headlines on Drudge makes my brain go into vapor lock. I need to get down, follow the money, see who lines up at the window for the sex-money-power triacta. All the usual suspects, why am I not surprised?

This commenter is gonna back off, let all the owls out there provide the quips. I'm gonna look at some Three Stooges flicks, do a little work in my arms room and then go out to the range. I play with tannerite when I get too stressed.

That scene is not a far flung fantasy. This government and several others are now playing with a fire that will get out of control. With NSA spying on foreign citizens/governments as well as American citizens now blatantly advertised by the mafia in power in this nation, it is a giant target. The nine ring fits nicely around DC. Center of the worlds largest crime family.

The smell of barbecued pig is very pleasing.

Perhaps NASA will screw the pooch on an asteroid approach and DC will become the new Bay of the Potomac.
