Memorial Day

Today we are observing Memorial Day, the national holiday to honor America's war dead. As you go about your day today, please stop for a moment, and think about the freedoms that we all enjoy, that were bought and paid for by the sacrifice of our men and women in uniform.

For a brief history of Memorial Day, go here (courtesy of The History Channel).

Obesity adds to global warming, study finds

As reported here, [o]besity contributes to global warming, too.

Bwahahahahahaha! How ludicrous!

Looks like the followers of the Church of Global Warming are having to reach to continue to justify their false beliefs.

What's next on the list? Chewing gum? Blowing bubbles? Breathing?!?! The list just keeps getting longer and longer, and more ridiculous.

Man charged over Golders Green stabbings

As reported here, [a] man has been charged following a double knife attack on two Orthodox Jews in Golders Green.

Mohamed Jama Ahmed, 37, of North Circular Road, Cricklewood, was arrested after two stabbings which happened just meters apart in roads off Golders Green Road on Friday.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said the attacks, which happened at around 6pm, appear to have been random and unprovoked, but were not being treated as faith hate crimes.

Hmmmm. Let me see if I get this right here ... Mohamed Jama Ahmed (I'm presuming from his name that this is a Muslim man) attacked two Orthodox Jews in seperate incidents on the same day in basically the same neighborhood, and this is not being treated as faith hate crimes?

How much you wanna bet that if the perpetrator had been a Jew or a Christian, and the victims Muslim, that the perpetrator would be facing the full weight of Her Majesties Courts through being charged with a faith hate crime?

The bending over backwards of the Europeans/English to not offend in any way, shape, or form, "Muslim sensibilities", is getting to the disgusting stage now, perhaps even beyond.

I'm not an advocate for special "hate crime" legislation - I feel that most of the laws on the books against crimes like this are perfectly adequate without getting all emo about it and throwing in the term "hate" - but this seems to me to be exactly that - a hate crime based on the fact that the two victims were Orthodox Jews. Orthodox Jews are very obvious from their appearance, so it's also obvious - at least to me - that the two victims were targeted for their faith.

Here's hoping that ol' Mohamed gets the book thrown at him - the book of "non-hate crimes" law that is.
