Mid-Week Post

Your central point of the week...

A sketch has been released of the man authorities believe left an explosive-filled backpack in Bangkok:

A police manhunt was underway Wednesday for an "unidentified foreign man" shown in a security video leaving a backpack at a popular Bangkok shrine just minutes before a bomb exploded there.

Two other people seen on the video near the man are also considered suspects in Monday's deadly bombing, police said.

Authorities released a sketch of the man who left behind the backpack and offered a 1 million baht ($28,000) reward for information leading to his arrest. But apart from the rough portrait, they had few solid leads in Monday's bombing at the Erawan Shrine that killed 20 people and wounded 120 others.

The grainy security video shows the man, wearing a yellow T-shirt and shorts, sitting down on a bench at the shrine, taking off a black backpack and leaving it behind as he stands up and walks away. Time stamps show he left the shrine 15 minutes before the explosion, which struck just before 7 p.m.

I don't care about the Mike Duffy trial.

I just don't.

I don't condone his actions, nor do I condone any member of the government covering for him.

That being said, when some angry taxpayer calls you a "piece of sh--" because you do nothing but cover the Mike Duffy trial and ignore Premier Kathleen Wynne's child-abusing friend and deleted e-mails relating to costly gas plant cancellations, spend all your time maligning the prime minister because he has the audacity to be bothered by victims of ISIS AND your union is registered to campaign in the federal election, then that is exactly what you are: a piece of sh--.

The Liberal Party - keeping it classy:

She has since stepped down but whatever. She is as courteous as the Fils:

The Palestinian Liberation Organization, or the PLO, is a terrorist organisation responsible for such atrocities as the murder of Leon Klinghoffer, a disabled Jewish American, and would later accuse his wife of murdering him, has been sued by families seeking reparations.

Guess who has taken the PLO's side against them:

In an unusual legal move, the Obama administration has taken the legal side of the Palestinian Authority and Palestine Liberation Organization in a federal court case that American terrorism victims' families had already won.

Lawyers for the Justice and State Departments are arguing that the PA and PLO should not have to post a bond showing they can pay the massive damages during their appeal in U.S. federal court.

One of the families' attorneys argued otherwise. "The State Department should stand on the side of the American terror victims and not on the side of the Palestinian suicide bombers," said Nitsana Darshan-Leitner of the Israel Law Center.

The jury's judgment against the Palestinian groups came in a case, Sokolow v. PLO, before Manhattan U.S. District Judge George Daniels in February and could involve penalties of more than $650 million, triple the amount of damages awarded by the jury under U.S. law, plus interest.

The money would go to victims in seven deadly terrorist attacks in Israel between 2001 and 2004, including 11 American families. Hundreds were injured and 33 killed in the attacks.

It's clear that Obama is an Islamist-supporting sociopath.

The question is why aren't the Americans getting rid of him.

Cocooning oneself isn't going to make the evil go away, Western world.

Hey, remember when everyone accused Pope Francis is being some leftist Jesuit in the employ of the Illuminati or whatever freaky-deaky group they heard about on the Internet?

In his weekly Angelus message Wednesday, Pope Francis praised the value of hard work and a willingness to do one’s part for the common good rather than freeloading off society.

Citing Saint Paul, Francis said that “anyone unwilling to work should not eat” and added that being called a hard worker is the highest form of praise for a “serious, honest person.”

To call someone a worker, the Pope said, means that he is a member of the community who does his part and doesn’t “live off others.”

Work, he noted, “is needed to support one’s family, raise children and ensure a decent life to loved ones.” This habit of hard work, he added, is learned in the home, from one’s parents who support their family and in this way contribute to the common good.

Christians can find a great example of industriousness in the life of Jesus himself, Francis said. In the Gospel, “the Holy Family of Nazareth appears as a working family, and Jesus himself is called a ‘carpenter’s son’ or even ‘the carpenter.’”

(Sidebar: whoa! Hang on! The Occupy crowd can't dig the Jewish carpenter thing.) 

For also when we were with you, this we declared to you: that, if any man will not work, neither let him eat.
Read the comments following the article. Anti-Catholics are one degree away from leftists: so frothing at the mouth and idiotic that they cannot ever be taken seriously.

Douchebag of the year:

Most of us wouldn't think about North Korea as a place to go for a vacation, but a young man from Nova Scotia did just that last month.

The famously repressive regime hasn't been known for extending a friendly hand to foreigners, but this year the country is actively promoting its tourism industry, including building a brand new ski resort.

Andrew Nowlan lives and teaches in Japan. He's been to more than 60 countries in his extensive travels.

"It's one of my passions, I love to go abroad, eat different kinds of food, meet different people and North Korea was a place that always interested me," Nowlan said. 

Nowlan went on a five-day "Victory Tour" in Pyongyang, North Korea, which was centred around the country's celebration on July 27 to mark the end of the Korean War.

Nowlan and 15 other people were escorted around the city where they got to see some aspects of the culture up close. 

"The experience was quite different from expectations, I think based on what you see in movies and on TV, you expect it to still be perhaps like the famine era," Nowlan said. "But in fact Pyongyang is quite an attractive city."

Upon arrival, Nowlan and the other tourists had to claim all of their electronics, which were then searched by the customs agents to make sure there was no sensitive material on them — such as books that were critical of the regime.

"Luckily I didn't have anything that was too controversial," he said.

(Sidebar: like this?) 

This guy is just one of a whole group of self-absorbed @$$holes who think that going on holidays in Third World crapholes is just so chic. He and fifteen other people were never left unattended so one wonders how he could cut loose. It's not like he was a pastor doing something useful.
