Here’s what Geraldo Rivera thinks of our Constitution, our country, and most specifically, our indispensable natural right of self-defense:
Like I always say, the 2nd Amendment, the provision that gives every American the right to keep and bear arms, is blind and stupid. In its relentless pimping for the gun industry, the NRA has unleashed an avalanche of deadly weapons on this gun-crazy country. Just as protects access to weapons for cops and hunters, it also protects access to weapons for domestic abusers, mental patients, jerk-offs on the no-fly list, all-around dim bulbs, and now little children.
The inspiration for this diatribe was the sad case of someone foolishly letting a 9-year-old girl fire an Uzi, with predictable tragic consequences.
No wonder Fox News pays Geraldo the big bucks. Few people could pack so much moronic moonbattery into such a short paragraph.
“Pimping for the gun industry.” Please. When liberals get the political leverage to take our cars away for the sake of the environment, no doubt commies like Geraldo will accuse the opposition of pimping for the auto industry. Even this cheesy dope probably understands that there are very important principals involved. But liberals believe they can win any argument by accusing their opponents of participating in a free market economy.
Contrary to Geraldo’s ignorant rant, “domestic abusers” are not generally allowed to own guns. This means that a hostile ex can deprive you of arguably your most fundamental right by telling cops you slapped her — no proof required. But rather than be pleased with this victory, liberals disavow it in their urgent quest for ever more repression.
Presumably a journalist with his own show on the top cable news channel is aware that as a rule unsupervised children aren’t allowed guns either — but the mainstream media’s standards are not high, so it is hard to be sure.
Christine Rousselle is especially appalled by Geraldo’s use of the word “blind” to denounce our constitutional liberties:
While it’s not exactly a shock that someone against guns thinks that the Second Amendment is “stupid,” it is somewhat troubling that in Rivera’s eyes the amendment being “blind” is also a negative quality. The U.S. Constitution applies to every citizen regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sex and intelligence level. It would be thoroughly anti-American to have a set of Constitutional rights only for people who meet certain intelligence (or other arbitrary) qualifications.
Imagine if intelligence were used as a qualification for exercising the right of free speech. Geraldo would be making his living with a mop instead of a microphone.

The OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) claims that the jihad of Islamic State (ISIS) is not Islam. I claim it is pure Islam.
British Muslims Release Fearless Message to ISIS Members Who Use Religion as an Excuse for Violence
GReat Britain has been struggling with hundreds of British Muslims either joining ISIS or actively recruiting on its behalf in the UK.
Some British-based imams, such as Anjem Choudary, have been been open about their support for ISIS and radical Islam. Additionally, the murderer of American journalist James Foley is suspected to be British.
However, some British Muslim leaders are refusing to let radical Islamists speak for them. A group of British Muslim leaders issued a fatwa, or Islamic religious opinion, condemning ISIS (ISIL or Islamic State) as heretics.
The Independent has more:
Muslim leaders have issued a fatwa condemning Islamic extremist group Isis, and have said that British jihadis are “betraying their own societies” by getting involved in the conflicts in Iraq and Syria.
The fatwa represents the British Muslim community’s strongest denunciation of Isis yet, calling the extremist group “heretical” and “an oppressive and tyrannical group.”
According to The Sunday Times, the fatwa, authored by Sheik Usama Hasan, a former imam from east London, and supported by six senior Islamic scholars across the country, says it is “religiously prohibited (haram) to support or join” Isis.
Here’s a picture of the full fatwa that has turned up on social media:
It is good to see Muslim leaders in Western countries step up and denounce ISIS and other Islamist groups. Hopefully, this will remind Westerners as well that Muslims by and large do not support the savagry of groups of ISIS and their ilk.
This comes as American Muslims in Dearborn, Michigan, denounced ISIS earlier this summer.
It’s natural for human beings to seek out the reasons behind even the most senseless and horrific of crimes. Ten years after the Beslan tragedy, some of the victims’ families write letters to the only terrorist alive today who participated. He is serving a life sentence in a prison in the Arctic Circle. They have a lot to say to him. But will he listen? Has Nurphashi Kulayev come to regret his actions? What does he tell himself about his role in this atrocious act of cruelty? In Beslan, young former hostages talk about their lives after the tragedy and their aspirations.

Mozzarella Is the Best Pizza Cheese, According to Science
No word yet on the best topping
Mozzarella is the best pizza cheese because it melts, bubbles and browns better than any other cheese, according to a new studypublished in the August issue of the Journal of Food Science, titled “Qualification of Pizza Baking Properties of Difference Cheese and Their Correlation with Cheese Functionality.”
Researchers in New Zealand compared pizzas using mozzarella, cheddar, Edam and Gruyere cheese using software specifically designed to measure browning, blistering and oil. Mozzarella, they found, was stretchier than other cheese, which allowed bigger bubbles to form when water evaporated from the pizza. And since mozzarella isn’t as oily or as filled with moisture as, say, Gruyere, it browned more easily.
The scientists concluded that these factors make mozzarella the most appealing to both the eye and the taste buds.
