The overpriced coffee chain, Starbucks, has made no attempt to hide their hatred for Israel, and flippantly tells anyone opposed to their anti-family stance to go somewhere else. Now they seem to have no problem discriminating against pregnant women, which would at least be consistent with their hatred of the family.
“The urge hit me as it does many women who have two weeks to go,” said Ilana Scheinker of north Phoenix, who was more than eight months pregnant “I said, ‘I’m pregnant, I really have to use the bathroom now.’”
As sometimes happens in restaurants, she wondered if she couldn’t use the restroom without making a purchase. The restroom had a locked door that required a security code to enter and Starbucks staff refused to enter the code.
Scheinker says the barista still said no, so she left and told her husband, who was waiting outside.
“My husband went up and again reiterated that, ‘My wife is very pregnant,’ ” Scheinker said. “Again he said no. Went back and forth. The man was unrelenting. My husband gave him his credit card and said, ‘Charge me for anything.’ The man refused. A woman standing behind said, ‘I’m about to make a purchase, give me the code and I’ll give it to her.’ ”
According to Scheinker, the Starbucks worker still said no and told them to leave. “Said that we should leave, go to the Fry’s grocery store and use their bathroom. If we don’t leave, he’s calling the police.”
Firebrand Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan’s latest racially-charged claim is that Ebola – the deadly disease ravaging parts of Africa and now diagnosed on American soil – was designed by white scientists specifically to kill off blacks.
The 81-year-old leveled the charge in his organization’s newspaper, The Final Call, insisting the disease is man-made and cooked up in a laboratory as a means of population control. He underscored the claim on his Twitter page, which has 308,000 followers.
“There is a weapon that can be put in a room where there are black and white people, and it will kill only the black and spare the white, because it is a genotype weapon that is designed for your genes, for your race, for your kind,” Farrakhan wrote.
After imperiously declaring that his infallible mind-powers override objective reality, scientist/entertainer Neil deGrasse Tyson finally got around to admitting he’s been misrepresenting the allegedly intolerant and stupid George Bush quote he’s been deploying during seminars for years.
Tyson slandered Bush with an utterly fabricated quote whose false presentation by Tyson completely distorts its meaning. He denied he got it wrong after Sean Davis at The Federalist called him on it. Then, under pressure, Tyson finally conceded his total-recall super-brain might have failed him in a few particulars after all.
No telling how the deranged mob of Tyson cultists will take even this qualified admission of error from the Lord of Science, since they’ve been keeping themselves busy nuking Wikipedia entries and screaming at the top of their lungs that Tyson is incapable of error. He knows that, which is why he parsed his semi-apology so carefully; it’s irresponsible of Tyson not to forthrightly and earnestly apologize, and give his childlike followers a useful life lesson in the value of independent thought and skepticism. Which, you would think, would be of paramount importance to a scientist, who should also be among the first to denounce cults of personality. But that’s not how Big Science works any more, following its fusion with politics.
From the Denver Post…
Under withering criticism from Congress, the director of the Secret Service on Tuesday admitted failures in her agency’s critical mission of protecting the president but repeatedly sidestepped key questions about how a knife-carrying intruder penetrated ring after ring of security before finally being tackled deep inside the White House.
Despite the extraordinary lapses in the Sept. 19 incident, Julia Pierson asserted: “The president is safe today.”
Hours later, reports emerged of yet another failure in Secret Service protocol, this time in President Barack Obama’s presence.
On Sept. 16, an armed federal contractor rode on an elevator with Obama and his security detail while the president was visiting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, the Washington Examiner reported. The Washington Post reported similar details and added that the man had three convictions for assault and battery.
Why then with the unpopularity Obama has and his lax security is he still alive?
The same reason he was re-elected, or elected in the first place, for that matter.
There’s a correlation between insanity and stupidity. The more crazy a person is, the less intelligent they are, and thus by the time they get crazy enough to do something like assassinate a president, the odds are they’re too stupid to actually do it. Exceptions do occur, which is why we actually have a Secret Service. But since it’s painfully obvious now that Obama’s security are as moronic as he is, the only thing that’s kept him alive has been the overall stupidity of society in general, which is also why he was elected twice.
An ironic catch-22.
Intelligent people understand that besides being wrong, the assassination of a president, regardless of their politics, would do far more to hurt the nation as a whole than the president himself could do by remaining alive. That’s why any time you read someone popping off about how Obama should be shot, hung, etc. is a sign that that person is an idiot.
