Today is apparently National Puppy Day, and what better way to celebrate than with a feel-good puppy story?
Beyonce the teeny tiny two-week-old puppy was named after the pop singer because, just like her namesake, she too is a survivor.
Born not breathing, Beyonce had to be resuscitated through CPR. Cheating death is apparently a trait Beyonce inherited from her mom, a stray who was almost euthanized.
As if that weren’t enough amazing to last the rest of National Puppy Day, the litter Beyonce was born into was almost aborted.
Has the mystery of Clintonville’s bizarre booming sounds been solved? If scientists are to be believed, the cause of the noisy phenomenon is a “swarm of microquakes.”
“The mystery is solved. We have experienced an earthquake here in Clintonville,” City Administrator Lisa Kuss told residents at a city meeting last night. The USGS backed up its “claim” with “evidence” showing that a 1.5 magnitude earthquake struck the central Wisconsin city around noon on Tuesday.
Residents, who began hearing strange rumbles this past Sunday, challenged the city’s explanation, saying quakes had previously been ruled out. Kuss admits that it was “by fluke” that the USGS’s traveling portable arrays happened to be in the area when the tremors occurred.
For now, this is the best answer the city has to give, though officials acknowledge they aren’t sure it’s the only answer, so Graboids are very much still on the table.
Banner day for smearing people on MSNBC.
KAREN FINNEY: How do we go from one state to 30? Who was the Typhoid Mary for this horrible outbreak? Try not to be surprised. It’s the usual suspects: the Koch brothers, the NRA, the American Legislative Exchange Council, and Clinton vets, remember the Scaife family? Oh, yeah. These are the same people who stymied gun regulation at every point who funded and ghost write these laws and others that have become a core of the conservative agenda that is being implemented across our country. It’s the same group that also wrote the voter I.D. laws which threaten to disenfranchise some 5 million american voters, many of them African-American.
All I can say is, at some point the real truth of what happened in this tragedy will come out. I right now am not taking sides on this. I have one hoodie that I rarely wear because it is a pullover and I hates to put on pullovers.
Last weekend in the city of Chicago alone, gangbangers slaughtered ten people and wounded another forty. The youngest fatality is only six years old. The youngest person wounded is only one-year-old. Many of the victim were pedestrians sprayed with bullets in drive by shootings. The national news has said nothing about this.
So why does one shooting in Florida warrant weeks of national news? Why has there been thousands of articles a day, for the last four days, about one single shooting?
-The media … their articles with outdated baby-faced pictures of Trayvon. Very few include that he was a towering 6’2” football player.
-Many news articles have also claimed the neighborhood is ”mostly white.” The neighborhood is only 49% white. It is over half non-white.
-The witness reports that George Zimmerman was on the ground and Trayvon is on top of him punching him.
-The witness says that George Zimmerman was screaming and yelling for help.
-Police arrive and find Zimmerman bleeding on his face and the back of his head. He also has had grass stains on his back. All this confirms the story told by Zimmerman and the witness.
-Police play the 911 tape for Trayvon Martin’s father, who tells police that the voice screaming is not the voice of his son.
-Would you be surprised to learn that there were eight burglaries, nine thefts, and a shooting just in the past year? In fact, the local homeowners’ association reports that George Zimmerman actually caught one thief and aided in the apprehension of other criminals.
- In fact the Miami Herald goes on to interview neighbor, Ibrahim Rashada, who is black. Rashada ?confirms that there has been a lot of crime in the neighborhood and indicates to the reporter that the perpetrators are usually black.
The media also characterizes Trayvon as a “model student.” In fact, he under a five day suspension when the shooting took place. That is why he was staying at a house so far from his school on a school night. A laywer for Trayvon’s family has blocked access to his school records. However, you have to do something pretty bad to get suspended for five days.
Wait, did he say Jeb Bush?
Via Beltway Confidential:
MSNBC host Ed Schultz blamed former Gov. Jeb Bush, R-Fla., for the death of Trayvon Martin, the teenager whose death in a shooting has made national news and sparked accusations of racism in America.
“Jeb Bush helped pave the way for this senseless tragedy and remains silent,” Schultz said last night on his show. “What a political tragedy.” [...]
The MSNBC host tied Bush to the killing because George Zimmerman, the man accused of shooting Martin, was not arrested for murder after he claimed the shooting was in self-defense.
“Rush Limbaugh calls a presidential candidate, Senator Barack Obama, a magic negro…In the case of Trayvon, those festering stereotypes had lethal consequences.”
Before she baselessly slanders someone it would help to do a 10-second Google search, if she did then she’d know Rush didn’t come up with the term “magic negro,” he was reading from a LA Times column.

Liberal in France just like our liberals! Still waiting for Obama to apologize to muslims for this guy’s death.
(JPost) — France’s education minister called for disciplinary proceedings against a teacher in the north of France on Friday, after she allegedly asked her students to observe a moment’s silence for serial killer Mohamed Merah, the man who gunned down three children and a rabbi in front of Jewish school in Toulouse earlier this week.
Students in the the French English teacher’s class in Rouen wrote to their principal that she had called the serial killer a “victim,” and said his links to al-Qaida were fabricated by the media and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, according to AFP.
The teacher’s request prompted most of the students to empty out of the classroom, though some stayed behind to “try to understand what she was talking about,” AFP reported according to their letter.
French Education Minister Luc Chatel has called for the teacher to be suspended for her request, which was made the day after police shot Merah dead in the south of France after he went on a killing spree.
The caliber of people that run California is directly proportional to the number of liberals in that state voting for them. The governor is another liberal without a freaking clue.
(WSJ) — California Gov. Jerry Brown said the September bankruptcy of California solar-panel maker Solyndra LLC provided a learning opportunity and will help companies do better.
“I thought failure was part of the process,” Mr. Brown said, speaking at The Wall Street Journal’s ECO:nomics conference in Santa Barbara, Calif. “Hell, I was out of office for how many decades? You gotta try things.”
Mr. Brown pointed out that the collapse of Fremont, Calif.-based Solyndra was a sign that solar-power prices were falling, which benefits California, the largest solar-power market in the U.S.
“Solyndra thought the market was one price, and the price was lower; Hallelujah! California installed 500 megawatts of solar last year and we’ll do more this year.”
Mr. Brown said there’s a lot to learn from the Solyndra debacle, including how politics influences energy. But he notes that Solyndra’s failure—which left U.S. taxpayers on the hook for more than $500 million—was “chump change” compared to the recent mortgage meltdown and financial crisis.
One of Obama’s buddies here (actually both of them):
Linguistics professor and terrorist sympathizer Noam Chomsky wrote a laudatory blurb for a book edited by Jim Yong Kim, President Obama’s choice to lead the World Bank.
“This penetrating and often harrowing inquiry provides a wealth of valuable insights and analysis,” Chomsky wrote of Dying for Growth: Global Inequality and the Health of the Poor, a classroom textbook edited by Kim and three others.
Chomsky has previously stated that there is no evidence that al-Qaeda carried out the 9/11 terrorist attacks, among other controversial claims.
Mr. President, you’re conspicuously absent from the 2-year anniversary of your “greatest accomplishment”
She is prepared for anything. Look at her wall of weaponry.
