You Gotta Be Kidding...

***A $15 million dollar construction project in Texas has been shut down because of...a rare spider, and worries that it will disrupt its habitat.

A rare spider discovered at a construction site in San Antonio has shut down a $15 million project as federal and state officials consider ways to continue without disrupting the arachnid’s natural habitat.
The spider, identified as a Braken Bat Cave Meshweaver, is an endangered, non-venomous species that lives in caves, has no eyes and is virtually translucent. Josh Donat, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Transportation, said the recent discovery is only the second time the species has been spotted in more than 30 years.

To which I say...who cares? And secondly, just because we've only seen two doesn't mean there aren't millions more. It's official, we've lost our collective minds. 

***Gotta find a scapegoat. The filmmaker whom the Muslims have used as an excuse to burn American embassies and kill Americans, faces jail time. This is absolutely nuts, but typical of this administration. Attack our free speech rights, not the vicious killers committing the crimes. As I said above, it's official...especially since there are people who think what the savages did and are doing over there has anything to do with a film. Think, people.

That last one certainly hits the nail on the head.

Compare Margaret Thatcher and Rushdie to Obama and Nakoula.
When Salman Rushdie had a death fatwa pronounced on him for a novel considered insulting to Islam, Margaret Thatcher immediately ordered a protective detail to be sent to Rushdie, who took him to an undisclosed secure location. They have been protecting him ever since. Bear in mind that Rushdie had been a severe and vocal critic and political opponent of Thatcher.
Compare and contrast to Obama and Holder’s treatment of Nakoula.
I will also note that the reaction to Britain in the Middle East was not noticeably worse than the reaction the USA is getting despite Obama’s apologies.

As Glenn Reynolds says, weakness seldom draws a good reaction. 

***I have these pets everywhere...

***Jay Carney really is an embarrassment -- if Obama was capable of embarrassment, that is:

JAY CARNEY, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: This is a fairly volatile situation, and it is in response not to United States policy, not to, obviously, the administration, not to the American people, it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting.
That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States.

You have to be just plain stupid to believe that this violence is not directed at the United States. Sure, it's just a coincidence that it started on 9-11, right? I know, Jay Carney is just saying what he's been told to say, but still...

***No...the hair, Mrs. Clinton. Seriously?


Ugliest baby

A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: “That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen. Ugh!” The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: “The driver just insulted me!”

The man says: “You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I'll hold your monkey for you.”  


***Guess I was in a picture posting mood today... :-)

***Have a great day!
