Argh….on another host company, got two blogs that are not up! So far, nothing from the company. Here is the scenario.
Yesterday, the blogs hosted by this company were again either damn slow in coming up, or just timed out. So I sent an email to them (could not use their ticket system because their site timed out!). Got a reply shortly saying that they were having problems and they finally found that it was the hard drive on the server going bad. So they gave me a choice, either wait for them to put in the new hard drive (meaning my blogs would be down for around 6 hours or so) or they would move my blogs to another server and with no down time. Well, guess which option I picked? Yep, move to new server. Which they did right away (I did have to point the blogs to the new server, no problem).
Now here is the problem. I did not check two of the blogs to see if they were okay! Yep, last night, I just updated two blogs and no problems. So naturally, even though the other two blogs I did not have to update, I just took it for granted they were up and running. Well, probably not! This morning, went to one blog to update and got error messages all over the map! Went to the other blog to update, same thing! Now the other two blogs were running okay and I could update them with no problem. Everyone on the internet can visit these two blogs. But the other two, no one can see and all one will get are error messages! So email to the host company. Nothing yet from them 4 hours later.
I checked and found that files were missing from these two blogs. Okay I say to myself, I will fix that pronto. Did that on one blog and it works great, except for one big problem. I can not get into the admin site! It views great, everything works, visitors will never see anything wrong. Now been thinking of my various options with wordpress. Like which files can I delete and re-add, in hopes that the admin side will come back up. So after I am done posting on this blog (iowadawg.com is with an entirely different hosting company) will work on one blog to see if my thinking is correct and I can fix it. If not, damn!
Because I forgot one minor thing last night…I forgot to make complete backups of my blogs BEFORE okaying them to move my blogs! So if I use the old backups, I will lose about a month’s worth of posts! Yes, saw that I had not made a single back up in the past 4 weeks! My bad!!!!
Anyways, hoping all comes up okay when I do what I want to do to get those two blogs back up and running.
Two blogs you should read daily, several times a day even.
The Right Scoop Today some great postings on Allen West, Rick Santorum, sex trade and more.
Bare Naked Islam Again, keep up with the nasty side of islam! Like today, islamics trading as usual in women for sex, using little girls for sex slaves, and more.
Now Planned Parenthood bullies Catholic food bank for saying no to them…
February 15, 2012 (Bound4Life.com) – One thing we learned from the Komen/Planned Parenthood fiasco is that it may be easier to say no to the mob than Planned Parenthood. We saw it again recently in Green Bay, Wisconsin. This one didn’t make much news, but created a local social network bully fest.
Planned Parenthood called Paul’s Pantry, part of the St. Vincent de Paul Society and the biggest food pantry in Wisconsin, and asked them to come and pick up donations, which may have been noble, but wasn’t something the Catholic organization felt comfortable doing — sending a truck over and perhaps giving the abortion provider a photo opportunity. The American Life League reports what the worker at the pantry said:
All I told the young lady from Planned Parenthood was that I couldn’t send a truck to pick up, and gave her a list of other food pantries that might want to pick up, I gave her no reason at all and she didn’t ask why. Soon after, I started receiving the hate e-mail and phone calls. I politely explained to callers that although we are non-denominational in regards to those we serve, we are a Catholic organization who shares a board of directors with our sister organization, St. Vincent de Paul. We adhere to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church and to the Rule of St. Vincent de Paul. I also explained our Gift Acceptance Policy and how acceptance of the donation would compromise our core values and possibly damage the reputation of Paul’s Pantry.
As with Komen, choice wasn’t okay with Planned Parenthood, and within a short amount of time, verbal abuse rolled in. Jill Stanek reports that a worker at Paul’s Pantry explained:
“Within 20 minutes I was getting phone calls and emails calling us [names]. The calls that day came from the Milwaukee area, where Planned Parenthood is headquartered. We have caller ID.”
[He] said he did tell one of the callers they could simply drop off their donation, “which happens about 100 times a day – in that case we don’t know where the food comes from. But if an organization wants a receipt, Paul’s Pantry has a gift acceptance policy. “If the donation is going to hurt us, we don’t accept it.”
Craig said it never got to that point with Planned Parenthood, though. PP invented the rest of the story. “What was their purpose?” asked Paul. “If they really intended to feed the poor they should have just dropped the food off and left it at that. But was it for their own self-promotion?”
The abuse didn’t stop there, though. First, Planned Parenthood broadcast it to their Facebook page on February 2:
(man, PP is out of control and needs to be stopped!)
Pissed off at being shot down over their “global warming” hype supposedly leading to rising ocean levels through receding glaciers, the eco-freak, twig eating, tofu farting;, lily livered, Prius driving, America-hating, bleeding heart liberal, blinkered, Starbucks drinking, elitist, can’t-we-all-just-get-along, granola eating, namby-pamby, Birkenstock wearing, tree hugging, long haired, pansy-assed, kumbaya-singing, Earth First, bed-wetting, patchouli wearing, dirty, smelly, dope smoking, bongo playing, arm pit haired women and feminized, armpit shaved men cryin “Mother Earth is Gaia” tortured artiste types are now trotting out another line of garbage to justify their existence: GLOBAL WARMING STARTED WITH THE CAVEMEN!
Personally, I think we’d stop the global warming threats with one simple move: institutionalize all the scientists who advocate global warming. Straight jackets and gags work really well.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — In one room, a ghastly photo wall of bloody, uncensored images showcases the mob’s greatest hits.
In another, visitors are taught to load a revolver. And for when a gun just won’t do, an oddball collection of household items — a shovel, a hammer, a baseball bat and an icepick — show the creative side of some of America’s most notorious killers.
On the 83rd anniversary of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, Sin City is honoring one of its earliest relationships with the grand opening of a museum dedicated to the mobsters that made this desert town. There are tommy guns, money stacks and a bullet-riddled brick wall from the 1929 massacre that saw Al Capone seize control of the Chicago mob.
Las Vegas has long been enamored with its gangster roots. Its longtime former mayor played himself in the mob flick “Casino” and hotels here often promote their nefarious origins. But the publicly funded, $42 million Mob Museum represents a new height in Sin City’s lawlessness devotion. Even the local FBI agents are in on it.
“We wanted to make sure the truth came out,” said Ellen Knowlton, a former special agent in Las Vegas brought on to legitimize the downtown attraction.
It’s the second mob-themed attraction to open in Las Vegas in the past year. The Mob Experience at the Tropicana casino on the Las Vegas Strip quickly shut down because of slow ticket sales and other problems. It’s slated to reopen later this year under the name Mob Attraction Las Vegas.
City officials said their version will perform better because it’s an authentic examination of the decisions and circumstances that made Las Vegas an international symbol of debauchery and excess. The museum is housed in a former Depression-era federal courthouse where the seventh of 14 U.S. Senate hearings on organized crime was held in the early 1950s. The proceedings watched by 30 million people introduced the mob to most Americans.
But critics argue the government-backed attraction is a waste of tax dollars at a time when Nevada tops the nation in foreclosures and unemployment.
“It’s a risky bet,” said Andy Matthews, president of the conservative Nevada Policy Research Institute, which protested the museum during its grand opening ceremony Tuesday.
Nevadans and mobsters have a long, storied history.
Casino workers and longtime visitors alike are known to wax nostalgic about the days when mob bosses kept drink prices low and streets violence free. Their casinos became celebrity playgrounds and architectural icons. The Stardust, El Cortez, Tropicana, Dunes Hotel, Desert Inn, Flamingo and Fremont hotel were all backed by the mob at one point. Elvis and Priscilla Presley tied the knot at the mob-controlled Aladdin resort and Wayne Newton later purchased it.
More recently, Las Vegans thrice made former mob attorney Oscar Goodman their mayor. And when he was term-limited from running again last year, they gave the job to his wife.
The establishment where customers over 350 pounds eat for free and a sign on the wall reads “a taste worth dying for” is known for serving 6,000 calorie burgers stacked high with cheese and bacon.
The unidentified man, who was in the process of scrafing down a Triple Bypass Burger, began sweating and shaking profusely, prompting one of the nurse-themed waitresses to alert the restaurant’s proprietor, “Doctor” Jon Basso.
“One of the nurses came back to me and said, ‘Dr. Jon, we’ve got a patient who’s in trouble,” said Basso. As Fox 5 Vegas deemed it necessary to note, “Doctor” Jon is not a real doctor, so he phoned 911 and told them to send an ambulance.
“I actually felt horrible for the gentleman because the tourists were taking photos of him as if it were some type of stunt,” Basso told Fox 5. “Even with our own morbid sense of humor, we would never pull a stunt like that.”
He said this was the first real heart attack the Heart Attack Grill has experienced.
Meanwhile, the “patient” is reportedly “alive and recuperating.”
Here you go people, soon there will be NO religious rights for us.
An internal FBI investigation into its counterterrorism training has purged hundreds of bureau documents of instructional material about Muslims, some of which characterized them as prone to violence or terrorism.
The bureau disclosed initial findings from its months-long review during a meeting at FBI headquarters on Wednesday with several Arab and Muslim advocacy groups, attended by Director Robert Mueller. So far, the inquiry has uncovered and purged over 700 pages of documentation from approximately 300 presentations given to agents since 9/11 — some of which were similar to briefings published by Danger Room last year describing “mainstream” Muslims as “violent.” And more discoveries may be forthcoming, as the FBI continues its inquiry and responds to Freedom of Information Act requests for the documents themselves.
FBI spokesman Christopher Allen confirms to Danger Room that the bureau found some of the documents to be objectionable because they were inaccurate or over-broad, others because they were offensive. Allen explains that the documents represent “less than 1 percent” of over 160,000 documents reviewed by the inquiry, which was prompted by a Danger Room investigation in September. The FBI purged documents according to four criteria: “factual errors”; “poor taste”; employment of “stereotypes” about Arabs or Muslims; or presenting information that “lacked precision.” [...]
But the FBI isn’t finished. The bureau plans to publish a “touchstone document” in the coming weeks that explains its criteria to ensure new anti-Islam documents won’t enter counterterrorism training in the future. Similarly, the Justice Department plans on March 21 to release “Cultural Competency” guidelines for dealing with Arab and Muslim communities on counterterrorism, according to Xochitl Hinojosa, a department spokeswoman.
(see, political correctness done entirely wrong! and yet, who in our congress will fight this shit?)
Gallup: “U.S. small-business owners who aren’t hiring — 85% of those surveyed — are most likely to say the reasons they are not doing so include not needing additional employees; worries about weak business conditions, including revenues; cash flow; and the overall U.S. economy. Additionally, nearly half of small-business owners point to potential healthcare costs (48%) and government regulations (46%) as reasons. One in four are not hiring because they worry they may not be in business in 12 months.”
