The laugher for the day: Tony Perkins Fears Obama Will Start Putting Christians In Jail Any Day Now

Tony Perkins invited Fox News’ go-to-Christian-persecution-commentator Todd Starnes to join him on the weekend edition of “Washington Watch,” where Starnes pointed to recent remarks by Rick Warren and Russell Moore warning of the imminent imprisonment of Christians in America as proof that Christians will indeed soon face jail sentences.

Perkins, who recently warned that gay rights advocates are about to launch an anti-Christian Holocaust, naturally agreed that such arrests are going to “play out very quickly in our day.”

The Family Research Council president told Starnes: “I do think that it could very well come to that in our lifetime. A few years ago I didn’t think it would, not this quickly, but as we have seen the aggressive nature of this administration and this president and the open hostility of this administration toward orthodox faith — we have seen it in the HHS mandate, we have seen it in the numerous cases regarding marriage — I think it is going to come down to that.”

Who pulled the cord? - Emergency slide inflates mid flight

Emergency Evacuation Slide Deploys Midair On United Flight

June 30 (Reuters) - A United Airlines flight bound for southern California with 101 people on board was diverted to Wichita, Kansas on Sunday night after an emergency evacuation chute inflated inside the aircraft in mid-flight, the airline said.

United flight 1463, which was carrying 96 passengers with five crew members on board, was bound for Orange County's John Wayne Airport, south of Los Angeles, when the emergency chute accidentally deployed, the airline said.

"The flight diverted to Wichita ... No one was injured and the flight landed safely," United said in a statement. The Boeing 737-700 took off from Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.

American interests translated to Oil Companies interests

As the president talks about sending advisers to Iraq, he said "We will be helping Iraqis as they take the fight to terrorists who threaten the Iraqi people, the region, and American interests as well."

We all know the only interest that Americans have in Iraq is oil. And protecting that only means we are protecting several corporations interests. The first Iraq war was about oil, the second Iraq war was about oil, and this is as well.

Deadline Set For Claims In Freedom Industries Case

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A federal bankruptcy judge has set an Aug. 1 deadline for financial claims by West Virginia residents and businesses affected by a January chemical spill in Charleston that contaminated the local water supply.

Proof of claims forms can be obtained and filed on the U.S. Bankruptcy Court's website. The Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/1lYAOpF) reports business losses must be accompanied by documentation, while residents don't need such documentation for personal damage.

A spill of the coal-cleaning agent crude MCHM at Freedom Industries' plant along the Elk River contaminated 300,000 people's tap water in nine counties. Residents were ordered not to use tap water for up to 10 days except for flushing toilets and putting out fires.

Dozens of individuals and businesses sued Freedom after the spill, many saying they lost profits and wages while their workplaces remained shuttered for days without clean water. Those legal cases were frozen when Freedom filed for bankruptcy protection eight days after the spill.

The Freedom case's claims agent, James W. Layne Jr., said people should not rely on those previously filed civil lawsuits. They should instead file bankruptcy claims.

Another day - another gun nut shoots off...

The victim was a male student, but wasn't further identified.

More Voting Games in Ohio - Xpost GD

Someday, after they figure out how to appeal to a broader swath of the electorate, Republicans will probably be embarrassed by how much time they have spent making it harder for Americans to vote. For now, though, the beat just goes on. In a misguided effort to hold on to power despite an ever-shrinking base of older white voters, Republican lawmakers around the country continue to impose all sorts of barriers to the ballot box.

One of the most egregious examples is happening in Ohio, a critical swing state in presidential elections and the scene of many recent disenfranchisement attempts.

In February, state legislators quickly pushed through a law removing the first week of Ohio’s 35-day early-voting period — which was also the only week that permitted same-day registration. Days later, Ohio’s secretary of state, Jon Husted, issued a directive further cutting back on early voting by eliminating voting during evening hours, on Sundays, and on the Monday before Election Day. Previously, county election boards had the power to set polling hours based on local needs, which vary widely — one rural county has just 13,000 residents, while more than 1.2 million live in Cuyahoga County, which includes Cleveland.

The effect of the cuts will be felt especially by vulnerable populations in the bigger cities, who also tend to vote Democratic. Minority citizens vote early at twice the rate of whites, while lower-income and less-educated voters often cast ballots on weekends and evenings because they are often unable to take time off work. During the 2012 presidential election, 157,000 Ohioans — making up more than a quarter of all early in-person voters — voted during the days and hours that have now been cut, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which last month sued the state over the new restrictions.

What possible explanation is there for limiting citizens’ opportunities to vote? Mr. Husted has said he wants to make it “easy to vote and hard to cheat,” although it is not clear how his directive does either. Officials also claim the changes will improve “administrative efficiency” and statewide uniformity in voting procedures. But a 2012 federal appeals court ruling striking down a similar directive, also issued by Mr. Husted, found no evidence that local election boards were struggling to cope with early voting.


Easy to vote? How do they sell this bullshit?
