According to the medical examiner the severe abuse started immediately upon birth.

Zirinsky now faces charges of first-degree murder, which carries a penalty of life in prison without the possibility of parole; first-degree child abuse resulting in death and first-degree child abuse resulting in serious physical injury. Each of the child abuse charges are punishable by as many as 25 years in prison.

Amber alert issued for two local children

Thursday – 3/24/2011,  10:26pm  ET

WASHINGTON – An Amber Alert has been issued for two local children.

Two-year-old Robert Anthony Anderson III and 10-month-old Tiara Imani Anderson were abducted by their father, Robert Anthony Anderson, Jr. Thursday.

Anderson, Jr. is described between 5 feet, 8 inches and 5 feet, 10 inches tall, weight 155 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.

The father and children were last seen in a four-door Lincoln with Virginia tags XFP-2636.

Police say Anderson, Jr. is possibly armed and wearing a bulletproof vest.

There’s a new controversy about the Bible going around.  When you dig jsut a little bit under the surface this quote form a fired methodist pastor sums it up nicely, “So long as we believe there’s a dividing point in eternity, we’re going to think in terms of us and them,” he said. “But when you believe God has saved everyone, the point is, you’re saved. Live like it.”

However that’s not how God has structured things.  God has NOT saved everyone from their sins.  The Bible is consistent in saying that ALL men(which means all people) are sinners. What He did through Jesus is give everyone the OPPORTUNITY TO BE SAVED from their sins through belief in His Son Jesus Christ.  That’s a very important distinction and one that is NOT being told by this pastor nor Rob Bell whose book started this “Controversy”.  The Bible is very clear about how you get into heaven and how you don’t. The Bible then makes it very clear what happens if you don’t accept Jesus as your savior. This is yet another misguided attempt to say everyone can get to heaven or to deny the existence of hell.

“So long as we believe there’s a dividing point in eternity, we’re going to think in terms of us and them,” he said. “But when you believe God has saved everyone, the point is, you’re saved. Live like it.”

Despite efforts to stem the tide of family flight, the population of children in San Francisco continues to ebb.

Families that remain in The City are bucking the trend that has plagued San Francisco for years as the number of children — defined as people up to 17 years old — has dropped from 181,532 in 1960 to 107,524 today, according to the latest U.S. Census Bureau figures. The 2000 census counted 112,802 youths.

The decrease is disappointing news for city officials, who have attempted to counter the family-flight trend by creating more affordable housing, improving schools and cutting costs, such as a college savings account for kindergarten enrollees.

Most Marylanders are aware of the hands-free driving law that went into effect October 1, but many motorists are not aware of another law that also went into effect that same day. According to a Maryland State Police press release, the “move over” law requires drivers approaching an emergency vehicle with its lights on to change lanes to an adjacent lane away from the emergency vehicle, if possible. Drivers who are unable to change lanes due to traffic are instructed to slow down to a reasonable and prudent speed. The goal of the new law is to help increase safety for police, fire and emergency medical personnel working on Maryland’s roadsides.

So much for her “apology” (“I deeply regret my comments I made last week regarding the Israelis and the Palestinians,” the 89-year-old Thomas wrote on her website. “They do not reflect my heartfelt belief that peace will come to the Middle Eastonly when all parties recognize the need for mutual respect and tolerance. May that day come soon.”

Thomas continued apologizing in the Washington Post, telling its media critic, Howard Kurtz, in a Monday column: “I’m very sorry for my remarks. I think I crossed the line. I made a mistake.”) she she got canned from the White House press corps(and her journalism and speaking jobs too).  The below tell it all.

 

Helen Thomas is not sorry, nor were the comments that ended her career accidental.

“I knew exactly what I was doing – I was going for broke,” she told Playboy in the magazine’s April interview. “I had reached the point of no return. You finally get fed up … I finally wanted to speak the truth.”

Thomas, of course, left her perch as the dean of the White House press corps last year after telling a rabbi and blogger that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine” and “go home” to “Poland, Germany and America and everywhere else.” Her family is Lebanese and she grew up in the Detroit area, home to one of the country’s densest populations of Arab Americans.

She spoke to Playboy at length about the situation in Palestine, her feelings on American support of Israel, and her take on Jews.

But her most controversial comments echoed ones she’s made before about the influence of Jews in American life, which have contributed to her name being stripped from journalism awards.

“[The Jews are] using their power, and they have power in every direction,” she told Playboy. “Power over the White House, power over Congress … Everybody is in the pocket of the Israeli lobbies, which are funded by wealthy supporters, including those from Hollywood. Same thing with the financial markets. There’s total control … It isn’t the 2 percent. It’s real power when you own the White House, when you own these other places in terms of your political persuasion. Of course they have power. [To the interviewer] You don’t deny that. You’re Jewish, aren’t you?”

She also had some controversial views about memorializing the Holocaust.

“There’s nothing wrong with remembering it, but why do we have to constantly remember?” she said. “We’re not at fault. I mean, if they’re going to put a Holocaust museum in every city in Germany, that’s fine with me. But we didn’t do this to the Jews. Why do we have to keep paying the price and why do they keep oppressing the Palestinians? Do the Jews ever look at themselves? Why are they always right? Because they have been oppressed throughout history, I know. And they have this persecution. That’s true, but they shouldn’t use that to dominate.”

The unfolding disaster at the Fukushima nuclear plant follows decades of falsified safety reports, fatal accidents and underestimated earthquake risk in Japan’s atomic power industry.

The destruction caused by last week’s 9.0 earthquake and tsunami comes less than four years after a 6.8 quake shut the world’s biggest atomic plant, also run by Tokyo Electric Power Co. In 2002 and 2007, revelations the utility had faked repair records forced the resignation of the company’s chairman and president, and a three-week shutdown of all 17 of its reactors.

With almost no oil or gas reserves of its own, nuclear power has been a national priority for Japan since the end of World War II, a conflict the country fought partly to secure oil supplies. Japan has 54 operating nuclear reactors — more than any other country except the U.S. and France — to power its industries, pitting economic demands against safety concerns in the world’s most earthquake-prone country.

Nuclear engineers and academics who have worked in Japan’s atomic power industry spoke in interviews of a history of accidents, faked reports and inaction by a succession of Liberal Democratic Party governments that ran Japan for nearly all of the postwar period.

Apparently the CDN node i was on had an issue.  Right after i posted my previous complaint the video got disconnected with a “video is not available try again later”.  I waited a small bit and now things are working great.  Looking at my logs i most assuredly am on a different Akamai node..:)

Trying to watch March Madness on the inet is painful right now.  I am watching the incoming bandwidth form ncaa.com going from a healthy 3 megs or higher to nothing..with more time at nothing.  Somebody isn’t hooked into a CDN well enough(if at all).  My firewall logs are showing tons of connections to Akamai…i guess there’s not enough AKAMI gerbils tonight..:)

Reactor #4 was the subject of much hype yesterday.  There was a fire coincident in its initiation with the explosion at Reactor #3.  Immediately every conspiracy site on the Internet assumed that the cause was an uncontrollable and catastrophic fuel pool fire.  There is no evidence consistent with this theory.  Most-important is that radiation levels at that plant were measured at 100mSv, which is high but not immediately dangerous, 1/4 of the level around #2/#3, and emergency workers can tolerate an hour or so without acute effects.  The evidence is strong that this was an industrial (not nuclear) fire and more-importantly there were later reports that the fire is out.  Were the “worse-case” scenario occurring that fire could not be extinguished.  To the point at hand, were you to simply walk within 50 ft of an exposed, unshielded used fuel rod of this sort you would almost-certainly take a lethal radiation dose.

Any claim that such an event is occurring that does not include a report that radiation levels are off the charts at that plant  and well into the “immediate danger to life” zone should be taken with a huge grain of salt.  In fact, I’ll go further – any such claimed report without the requisite backstop of the reported radiation level to substantiate it is almost certainly the product of someone attempting to run an “anti-nuke” hard-left disinformation line and you should immediately and permanently discard everything they say from that point onward as being intentionally dishonest. This particular failure mode is one of the “nightmare” scenarios that a handful of scare-mongers have run for more than 20 years.  The potential is real but the facts are that as long as you can get water back into the pool via any means even if it boils off it’s not a disaster or even particularly troublesome.  The phase change from liquid water to steam requires enormous amounts of energy and dissipating that energy is good, not bad, since that’s exactly what you want to happen.  These are open pools and you can fill them with anything that provides water.  No pressure is required unlike a reactor vessel where you must pump in fresh water against the pressure inside.  So long as you can put in new water faster than it boils off there’s no emergency and these pools are huge – most are roughly the size of a basketball court in dimensions and 30-40′ deep, which means it takes a very long time for the water to boil off to the point that the fuel is exposed.  A fire engine that can pull from any convenient source (including the sea, which happens to be right there) is sufficient to refill the water level.

The baby who was hours from being pulled off life support at his Canadian hospital has been rescued by the national director of Priests for Life and taken to the U.S. for treatment.Thirteen-month-old Joseph Maraachli, who is currently kept alive by a respirator and was recently denied a transfer to a Michigan hospital to undergo a tracheotomy, arrived in the U.S. early Monday morning with Fr. Frank Pavone and other Priests for Life staff.”Priests for Life staff toiled through the night for many nights, working in concert with dozens of people to make this possible,” Father Pavone said in a statement. “Now that we have won the battle against the medical bureaucracy in Canada, the real work of saving Baby Joseph can begin.”Maraachli was on his way to SSM Cardinal Glennon Childrens Medical Center in St. Louis, Mo., a non-profit health-care facility open to all children in need of medical care.The boy suffers from a rare, progressive neurological disease which, Canadian doctors say, has left him in a vegetative state beyond recovery. He has been at the Children’s Hospital in London, Ontario, since the fall.Priests for Life says it represents a family of ministries that “reach and enrich every aspect of the pro-life movement,” according to its website. The group has been strong advocates for the boys release and critical of his treatment in Canada.”The medical board overseeing his case is apparently convinced that giving proper care to Baby Joseph is futile,” the website reads. “They don’t mean that the medical care won’t help him. They mean his life in its current condition isn’t worth the trouble.”

At the time I went I did not know the Lord at all…and had no idea the significance of my journey. NOw that I am getting to know the Lord I would love to go back and bring my family back to God’s chosen Land to experience just being there…

As surely as the cherry blossoms will emerge after another cold, bleak Washington winter, so will the global warming muezzins resume calling us to prayer at their green altar. But now, thanks to National Geographic’s Charles Choi, we are reminded that if global warming actually occurred, any American president can not only end it but reverse it with the push of a button.

In a brilliant but little-noticed article, Mr. Choi reports that a small nuclear war — one that employed only 0.03 percent of the world’s nuclear arsenal — would result in reversing earth’s long-term warming trend and result in global cooling by 2.25 degrees, according to NASA computer models. It’s a wonder that Al Gore didn’t think of this a decade ago.

The NASA modelers apparently found that explosions of 100 Hiroshima-sized warheads would produce the desired effect by blasting so much dirt and dust into the atmosphere as to reduce the effect of the sun’s rays.

The model is based upon historical fact. The eruption of volcanoes, such as the 1991 Mount Pinatubo eruption in the Philippines, actually caused this effect but more briefly. And we don’t want to overdo it. The eruption of Indonesia’s Mount Tambora in 1815 caused widespread famine and unrest. In the NASA model, the one hundred warheads being set off would cool the tropics, Europe, Asia, and Alaska by about 5-7 degrees and parts of the polar regions would actually warm a little. The globe’s temperature would be cooled by about one degree Fahrenheit for a decade.

Currently, the State of Wisconsin automatically deducts union dues from public employee paychecks and it goes to the unions. The unions then use as much of the money as the leaders wish to give to candidates who will look favorably on their demands (almost always Democrats). Thus, the taxpayers are subsidizing partisan election donations.

This “closed shop” arrangement would change under the new law. Once it passed the state would no longer deduct union dues from paychecks. Employees would only pay dues voluntarily by signing a union card. The unions would have to go through the process of collecting the dues. This would increase their administrative costs and thus reduce the amount of money available for campaign donations. And, the union leaders would have to persuade employees of the value of joining. That’s a lot more work than sitting back and staring at the ceiling while a trove of dues comes pouring in from the state.

The legislation would require each public employee union to hold an annual election to see if a majority of the members want to continue to be represented by it. If they do, it continues; if not, it’s pffft to the union leaders and their comfy incomes.

Some of the demonstrators at the capitol in Madison have hollered about collective bargaining as a “basic right.” Not really. Not only is it not mentioned in the U.S. Constitution, but also nearly half the states have “open shops” with no collective bargaining (or permit it only for first responders).

Our bed broke more than 6 months ago. This past weekend we went to mattress wharehosue in Frederick and it was a highly unpleasant experience. The first salesman was kind enough until we wanted time to think about it..he then sent us to his closer who was scary looking and pushy. When we would not accept his terms he quickly literally showed us the door. It turns out that is the MO of that location. Tonight we went to dunkin donuts for dinner. We then hit the gas station to fill up the rental(ours is int he shop getting badly needed maintenance after 310k miles)…then to sleepy’s. After a prayer we went in. What a wonderful experience. The salesman there actually took the time to figure out our sleep issues and with the help of some impressive technology actually steered us to a bed we both liked instantly. I also made sure to get heather a tempurdic contour pillow. She was in bed heaven. I’m not going to detail the total expenditure in public but i can tell you we spent $300 less than we budgeted for. We spent nearly an hour at the crappy store. We were in and out with the bed bought in almost half that time tonight..:) If you are going to be buying a bed try the sleepys in Frederick, md on tues, thurs, and saturdays.

It is not hard to understand why the idea of military intervention in support of the Libyan rebels battling against the Gadhafi regime is tempting to some Americans. Responsible for both the Lockerbie bombing and the Berlin disco bombings that killed both American soldiers and civilians, there is little that is not reprehensible about Muammar Gadhafi. Nor has there ever been even a pretense of democratic legitimacy about the government of The Brother Leader and Guide of the First of September Great Revolution of the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, which came to power in a conventional third-world “colonel’s coup” in 1969.

Obviously, there is no way to know exactly what happened unless there is security camera footage, but if Fuller’s version of events is accurate, he deserves to be fully exonerated and Rosas should be charged with assault upon her recovery. Assuming that Fuller was, in fact, attacked by the woman and punched several times in the face, he did absolutely nothing wrong or illegal in throwing a single punch at his attacker, however hard it might have been. No one feels any sympathy for a smaller man who is dumb enough to start a fight he can’t finish and there should be absolutely none for a woman who does exactly the same thing. Conversely, if Fuller punched Rosas for simply attempting to hold the parking place, he should be found guilty of the count charged. But the fact that he is only facing a single count of second-degree assault despite the seriousness of the woman’s injuries tends to indicate that at least part of Fuller’s story is supported by the evidence.

And for all those would-be women warriors out there, notice that this was a relatively fair fight between the sexes as Fuller is a little guy who only outweighed Rosas by 50 pounds. It’s not as if he was a 250-pound construction worker; if he had been, Rosas would likely be dead already. Tough girl posturing and fantasies about female martial prowess notwithstanding, women simply are not capable of winning serious physical altercations with men, even with men who are physically smaller than they are. Ignorance has consequences and the consequences can be deadly.

The way to prevent these sorts of stupid tragedies from taking place is not to continue attempting to brainwash boys with outdated nonsense by telling them “you should never hit a girl”. All that does is to destroy adult credibility in young male eyes as boys will inevitably notice that despite all the equality talk, girls are very seldom punished for hitting them, even when unprovoked. The answer is to teach everyone, boys and girls alike, not to initiate physical violence. Both men and women must understand that no one has any right to attack another individual without the expectation of facing violent retaliation.

The more distasteful that a woman finds the idea of men beating down women in response to being attacked, the more she should be committed to telling women not to attack men. After all, how hard is it to not physically attack someone, especially someone bigger, stronger, and faster than you are? It is long past time for women to understand that they lost the privilege to be considered off-limits to retaliatory violence the moment they collectively demanded legal equality with men.

Ah yes.  We aren’t going to try to convince…we are going to threaten to get our way.

 

This is typical of folks who have bought into the twisted views on the Bible.  These folks either knowingly or unknowingly are Satan’s tools.  Read the entire article.  It outlines very well the Christian’s obligations when confronted by a group like soulforce.  Sometimes direct dialouge is NOT the way.  Simply declining their “invitations” would be sufficient.  Any group that has to be forcibly removed when they don’t get their way…is one group to be dealt with.  there’s a few ways to stand against things like this.  either confront them directly,  decline their “invitations” or other ways.  However cowtowing to their demands is not an option…that simply encourages folks like this to continue their actions.

 

“The Traditional Christian Position on Homosexuality Must Be Changed or Silenced”

 

“This spiritual violence must end,” declares White. “We love…the body of Christ too much to allow it to continue these policies that lead to suffering and death.”38 Elsewhere he warns, “The toxic rhetoric ?ows unabated, primarily from sincere but misinformed religious leaders. It is poisoning the national discourse, dividing homes and churches, ruining families and wasting lives. We must do our best to stop that ?ow of poison at its source.”39

Traditional teaching on homosexuality sparks violence; religious leaders dispense a toxic ?ow of traditional teaching; the ?ow must be cut off at its source—churches, Christian schools, evangelistic institutions, or any other places where the traditional biblical view on homosexuality is promoted. But how? “What I suggest to all homosexuals and their supporters,” White advises, “is to create tension between the church and the gay community.”40

To create that tension, Soulforce chooses a church, Christian college, denominational conference, or organization, then contacts them to request a meeting, warning of potential demonstrations or other “direct actions” if they refuse. Such “direct actions” may disrupt or inconvenience, but the group adheres to a strict policy of nonviolence, and there’s no evidence of Soulforce demonstrators ever threatening, vandalizing, name calling, or using obscenity in any form. Some leaders who’ve hosted meetings with Soulforce have positive things to say about the encounters,41 while others who’ve refused to meet their terms have been obliged to have them forcibly removed from their property.42 The meeting they request normally includes an allotted time to present their views to the church or campus, informal discussions, distribution of their literature, and meetings with the church or college leaders.

Annual events include the Equality Ride (bus riders visiting Christian seminaries and Bible colleges), the American Family Outing (delegates visiting megachurches), and Soulforce Q (international outreach). Clearly, then, Soulforce’s attempts to change the church’s views on homosexuality are expanding. So let me offer three general suggestions to consider when Soulforce calls.
