Are You Ready For Some Hitler?

Hank, Hank, Hank, bad move, it’s just not politically correct or acceptable to associate Obama with Hitler. It’s only okay to compare Bush to Hitler

ESPN drops Hank Williams Jr. from ‘Monday Night Football’

After ESPN dropped Hank Williams Jr. from opening Monday Night Football tonight after Williams’ controversial comments Monday about President Obama, the singer now says he was “misunderstood.”

Says ESPN, in a statement: “While Hank Williams Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize he is closely linked to our company through the opening to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

Williams, perhaps best known for his “are you ready for some football?” lead-in to ESPN’s Monday Night Football, Monday compared this summer’s so-called golf summit between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner as “one of the biggest political mistakes ever.”

As Williams put it on Fox News’ Fox & Friends: “It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu.”

Can you say overreaction by ESPN? Putting aside for a minute that Hank never actually, directly compared Obama to Hitler, if you watch the video it’s pretty obvious that Hank is high on something more than just life. Cut the dude some slack, he’s survived a traumatic brain injury, he’s a musician, musicians spout all sorts of bizarre thoughts aloud. Bring the song back, it’s a decades long tradition, Monday Night Football is pretty lame without it.

/I predict that ESPN will cave and the song will be back next week

Pakistan Circling The Drain

The government is crumbling, prominent politicians are being openly assassinated, and the situation seems to be getting worse by the day.

Pakistan’s Government Scrambles to Survive Coalition Defections

Pakistan’s ruling party is struggling to keep its grip on power a day after a key partner quit the governing coalition, denying it the majority in the national parliament. The prime minister is meeting with opposition politicians in a bid to head off a possible no-confidence vote.

Last month, a small party in the parliament, the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, announced it was switching to the opposition in parliament and demanded Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani step down.

But the major political setback came Sunday when the second largest party in the ruling coalition, the Muttahida Quami Movement,announced it was also ending its partnership with the government. The move has turned Prime Minister Gilani’s government into a minority coalition in parliament.

Leading Pakistani Politician Killed

A leading politician from Pakistan’s ruling party was gunned down in a wealthy neighborhood of Islamabad Tuesday by a member of his security detail after speaking out against the country’s controversial blasphemy laws, an assassination that highlights the nation’s struggle to contain extremism even among those close to the center of power.

Salmaan Taseer, governor of Punjab, Pakistan’s most-populous province, and a member of the ruling Pakistan People’s Party, died after a member of his security team fired multiple shots into his car at a shopping complex, police said.

His attacker, Malik Mumtaz Qadri, who surrendered to police, admitted he was angered by Mr. Taseer’s opposition to the blasphemy laws, Interior Minister Rehman Malik told local television.

Seriously, if you thought Pakistan was less than cooperative with the U.S. Coalition’s war effort in Afghanistan before, just wait and see what happens if the Pakistani government collapses. The current ruling party, the Pakistan People’s Party, are the moderates. Any follow on Pakistani government will surely be much less friendly to U.S. interests in the region, if that’s even possible. And don’t forget, Pakistan has nuclear weapons.

Onward Cartoon Jihadis, Plotting As To Kill

Unbelievable, it’s been five years since the original Mohammed cartoons were first published, more than 50 people, almost all of them Muslims, have died as a result, and these brainwashed, Islamic Jihadi murderbots still want to kill even more innocent people in the name of their, ever so peaceful, death cult that they insanely refer to as a religion.

Five suspects arrested over Danish cartoon ‘massacre plot’

Danish and Swedish police said yesterday they had foiled a potentially devastating terrorist attack after arresting five suspected Islamic militants who wanted to “kill as many people as possible” in the offices of a Copenhagen newspaper that published cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed.

Denmark’s intelligence service said it arrested four men in two raids in the suburbs of the capital and seized an automatic weapon, a silencer and live ammunition. Swedish police said they arrested the fifth suspect, a 37-year-old Swedish citizen of Tunisian origin who was living in Stockholm.

Lars Barfoed, the Danish Justice Minister, described the plot as “outrageous” and “terrifying” and said it was the “most serious attempt at terror” ever witnessed in Denmark.

Jakob Scharf, the head of Denmark’s intelligence service, told reporters that the militants had apparently planned to storm the Copenhagen offices of Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten newspaper, which published the controversial Mohamed cartoons in 2005. Once inside, they planned to fire automatic weapons at random, he said.

“They wanted to kill as many of the people present as possible,” Mr Scharf said, adding that “an imminent terror attack” had been foiled. He described the suspects as “militant Islamic activists with relations to international terror networks”. He said more arrests were possible.

The intelligence services arrested a 44-year-old Tunisian, a 29-year-old Lebanese-born man and a 30-year-old who were living in Sweden and had entered Denmark late Tuesday or early yesterday. The fourth person detained was a 26-year-old Iraqi asylum-seeker living in Copenhagen.

It’s also been reported that they were found with plastic flex cuffs, so you can bet they were planning some sadistic torture before they actually killed the infidels they found.

You Can’t Go Home Again

Do we really need to put a man on Mars this badly?

Scientists Propose One-Way Mars Spaceflights

Two U.S. scientists have proposed a unique and somewhat controversial solution to the challenges presented by a potential mission to Mars–they suggest making it a one-way trip.

In their article “To Boldly Go: A One-Way Human Mission To Mars,” which has been published in the latest edition of the Journal of Cosmology, authors Dirk Schulze-Makuch of Washington State University and Paul Davies of Arizona State University propose that nixing a return flight “would cut the costs several fold but ensure at the same time a continuous commitment to the exploration of Mars in particular and space in general.”

“It would also obviate the need for years of rehabilitation for returning astronauts, which would not be an issue if the astronauts were to remain in the low-gravity environment of Mars,” they added, arguing that equipment from the Constellation project–a scrapped return mission to the moon–could be used to send two spacecraft, each containing two astronauts, a landing unit, and enough supplies to establish an outpost, to Mars.

In some ways, this plan appears to have some merit, although it just doesn’t seem to fit with America’s history of space exploration, always planning for the safe return of our astronauts.

/I suppose though, if we plan on continuing manned space exploration to ever more distant destinations, eventually the distances and time involved will make a return trip impractical, if not impossible

World Record Jesus

I’m not sure that this should be the object of competition but, apparently, it is.

Christ statue is worlds tallest

A HUGE statue of Jesus Christ — said to be the world’s tallest — has been put up in a small Polish town.

The controversial effigy stands at 33m (108ft), one metre for every year that Jesus lived, according to creator Reverend Sylwester Zawadzki.

With its gold crown, the white landmark is 36m (118ft) tall, and if the mound it stands on is also taken into account, it measures 51m (167ft).

Brazil’s famous Christ the Redeemer statue, the previous record holder, stands at 39.6m (130ft).

Mr Zawadzki, 78, the local priest in Swiebodzin, about 40 miles from the German border, said: “I have never been as happy as I am today.

“This is the culmination of my life’s work as a priest. I felt inspired to fulfil Jesus’ will, and today I give thanks to him for allowing me to fulfil his will.”

Some believe the £1million statue will bring more visitors to the area.

But others say the money would have been better spent elsewhere.
