Asteroid approach!

leave a comment »

Beware!  Run and hide!   Or perhaps not,  since NASA considers 1.1 million miles from earth to be a  “very close  approach.”   Maybe it ill comfort you to know that the agency thinks there is no chance that asteroid 2014 JO25 will actually collide with our blue ball.

If you know someone with a decent amateur telescope,  ask to watch the asteroid tonight.

Dear lying media…

…if you’re the least bit curious about why most Americans find you a corrupt,  slimy lot undeserving of the protections which our Constitution affords you,  you might try telling  the truth  about the recent shooting in Fresno.   You  substituted “God is great!” for the shooter’s shouted words of  “Allahu Akbar!”,  knowing full well that your deliberate omission of the Arabic words was misleading at best.   Of course,  CNN  simply ignored the inconvenient story altogether,  lest it interfere with its narrative of mistreated and misunderstood peaceful Muslims.

Or you could have National Public Radio  stop peddling  the endlessly repeated lie that Planned Parenthood provides mammograms.   It does not,  but it does provide referrals for that and most of the other procedures it claims to offer.   The fact that Barack Obama helped spread the falsehoods during his presidency does not serve to make them true.

Of course,  the Fresno police haven’t  much clarified  the matter by declaring this a hate crime based on race because the killer of four was black and all the victims were white.  Can we say  “terrorism”  boys and girls?
