The "Gimmies" March

WALLER COUNTY, Texas — A group of armed members of the New Black Panther Party marched on the Waller County Jail Wednesday afternoon chanting “The revolution is on… Off the pigs,” and “Oink Oink… Bang Bang!” The group of about fifteen Black Panthers exercised their First and Second Amendment rights. The group was met in Waller County by a large contingent of Harris County (Houston) Sheriff’s Office deputies.

What  "revolution" are they chanting about? What is their goal? Who do they think is their enemy

Imagine. A group of heavily armed malcontents show up in front of a police station shouting about a "revolution" and killing the police.

That's conduct far and above exercising their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights.  They were - in fact - declaring war on the police.

And there they stood, unchallenged,  shouting insults and threatening death to the police, assault weapons at the ready. They are either stupid, crazy or very, very lucky. 

To be truthful, I'm a bit surprised they are all still alive.

To believe that the police are afraid of them and will not push back is pure folly. The police are simply trying to defuse the situation peacefully, but when they had had enough, they will put a stop to this mind-boggling stupidity. And it will be very, very bloody.

What are their goals?

Here is excerpts from the Black Panther  "Platform and Program":

1. We want freedom. We want power to determine the destiny of our Black Community.
2.We want full employment for our people.
3. We want an end to the robbery by the white man of our Black Community.
4. We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings.
5. We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society.       We want education that teaches us our true history and our role in the present-day society.
6. We want all black men to be exempt from military service.
7. We want an immediate end to police brutality and murder of black people.
8. We want freedom for all black men held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails.
9. We want all black people when brought to trial to be tried in court by a jury of their peer group or people from their black communities, as defined by the Constitution of the United States.
10. We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace. And as our major political objective, a United Nations-supervised plebiscite to be held throughout the black colony in which only black colonial subjects will be allowed to participate for the purpose of determining the will of black people as to their national destiny.

That's an impressive list of "wants". 

Numbers 6, 8, and 10 pretty much take the whole thing off the rails. Particularly number 10, where they want the United Nations to create a black nation  in which only blacks will be allowed to participate in.

There is already a place like that... Africa.

But they would have to work for what they want in Africa... nobody to just take it from.

That's gotta suck.

Curiosity's Curious "Crab" Creature

The Mar's rover curiosity send back the below photo of a quite strange "something" on a cliff face on Mars.

It's hard for me to just conclude that this "something" is some sort of natural rock formation. The possibility that it is a living crab-like creature crawling around the rocks is incredibly slim, but it just might be some sort of plant growth rooted into a crevice in the cliff face.

The circular shape pretty much eliminates the possibly that it is lava, or mud, or some kind of flowing mixture oozing out of the cliff face, since it's apparently "hanging"  vertically, so the shape would slump into an oval, and certainly not ooze upward as some of the features indicate.

Who knows what it is.. We sure Don't.  Nor does NASA.

But it sure is interesting.

The Husband Store AND The Wife Store

From Uncle Bob's Treehouse: (different Bob)

"A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

"You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to The Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

"Floor 1 – These men have Jobs.
"She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

"Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
"‘That’s nice,’ she thinks, ‘but I want more.’
"So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

"Floor 3 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
"‘Wow,’ she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
"She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.
"‘Oh, mercy me!’ she exclaims, ‘I can hardly stand it!’
"Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads

 Floor 5 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.
"She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

"Floor 6 – You are visitor 81,456,012 to this floor.

"There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at The Husband Store.

"To avoid gender bias charges, the store’s owner opened The Wife Store just across the street with the  same rules as the Hushand store.

"The first floor has wives that love sex.
"The second floor has wives that love sex, have money and can really cook.
"The third floor has wives that love sex, have money, can really cook and are drop dead gorgeous.
"The fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited."

Now, don't be blaming me for posting this, it's already all over the internet.

In public, no less.

Your president greeting a gay supporter, or something.

We are informed that Obama wants this photo eliminated from everywhere forever, but Wirecutter ( us to spread it everywhere....

Guess who wins.
