Monday Post

What's in the news?

Oh, God, shut this man up:

President Barack Obama hailed the recapture of Mosul dam Monday as a "major step forward" as a barrage of U.S. airstrikes helped Kurdish and Iraqi forces score the biggest victory of its counteroffensive against the Islamic State militants.

Obama also urged the badly fractured and largely dysfunctional Iraqi government to move quickly to forge a united front and give hope to Sunni tribes who've been marginalized. Obama noted last week's decision by Nouri al-Maliki to step down as Iraq's prime minister, a move that raised hopes a new government could roll back Iraq's powerful Sunni insurgency and prevent the country from splitting apart.

"They've got to get this done because the wolf's at the door," the president said.

Says the man who withdrew his troops in 2011.

Obama could, at any time, send out even one drone and liquidate the same demons who behead children but he won't. If he wouldn't get off of his @$$ in trying to save Ambassador J. Christopher Stephens, he's not going to save Yazidis and Iraqi Christians. He leads from behind every time.

What a weak, terrible man the Americans have twice put into office!


The Islamic State militant group that has seized large parts of Iraq and drawn the first American air strikes since the end of the occupation in 2011 has warned the United States it will attack Americans "in any place" if the raids hit its militants.

The video, which shows a photograph of an American who was beheaded during the U.S. occupation of Iraq and victims of snipers, featured a statement which said in English "we will drown all of you in blood".

This sounds familiar, as though some emotionally retarded, cousin-marrying freak had uttered this in ages past.

A lesson on why debt and interest suck courtesy of the Government of Canada:

Paying interest on your debt doesn’t just cost more; it can also prevent you from spending money on other needs and wants.

Government debt is no exception, and a new report from the Fraser Institute argues that those interest payments mean less money for public priorities such as hospitals, highways and schools. It’s also preventing governments from lowering our taxes.

“Whether you’re talking about a household or a government, when you take on debt, you have to pay interest, which leaves less money in the budget for other priorities,” states Sean Speer, an associate director at the Fraser Institute think-tank and co-author of the study called, “The Cost of Government Debt in Canada.”

The report comes as policymakers debate the best course of action for debt-laden governments. One camp believes governments should worry a little less about debt costs given that interest rates are low, and focus instead on maintaining much-needed public services and/or tax cuts for everyday citizens. Others believe the debt should be tackled, despite low interest rates, to preserve services and the overall economy for the longer term.

Fat broad sentenced for assault:

A college professor who teaches courses in pornography and black studies avoided jail time on Friday over her attack on two pro-life teens. Instead she was sentenced to three years probation, 108 hours of community service, and 10 hours of anger-management classes. ...

According to Fox News, another of Miller-Young’s colleagues, Professor Eileen Boris, wrote that "if [Miller-Young] appears smiling on camera, she is 'wearing the mask,' that is, she is hiding her actual state through a strategy of self-presentation that is a cultural legacy of slavery.”

Really? I thought it was because she is a fatty who can't control her temper.

The United Kingdom is allowing what is dubbed 'genetic modification':

Last month the UK’s Department of Health quietly redefined the term “genetic modification” to open the door to allow certain kinds of modification of human embryos – thus potentially making it the first country in the world to allow genetic engineering.

The case against Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne's friend is proceeding:

A former top-ranking Ontario education official and appointee of Premier Kathleen Wynne charged with making and distributing child pornography 11 months ago will face a preliminary hearing in November.

In July 2013, University of Toronto professor Dr. Benjamin Levin was arrested and charged with seven counts of child exploitation, including making and distributing child pornography as well as arranging for a sexual offense with a child.

The charges were filed after an international child pornography sting led investigators to his doorstep.
The upcoming three-day hearing will determine whether or not the Crown has sufficient evidence to bring Levin’s case to trial, reported Toronto Star.

Under his 2004-2009 watch as Ontario’s top education official, Levin oversaw the development of the now-shelved provincial sex-education curriculum themed around “sexual diversity.”

What joke? Doors don't lock themselves:

Oh yes:
