'Get On Board!' Coast Guard Officer Rages At Italian Cruise Ship Captain

Dramatic audio has emerged of an irate Italian Coast Guard officer ordering the captain of the cruise ship Costa Concordia to "get back on board!" as the stricken vessel lay crippled off the coast of Tuscany on Friday night...As NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports, in the telephone call Coast Guard Capt. Gregorio De Falco shouts as he accuses Costa Concordia Capt. Francesco Schettino of abandoning his ship. Schettino was apparently sitting in a row boat at the time.

"You've abandoned ship! I'm in charge now," De Falco rages. "Go back and report to me how many passengers and what they need. ... Perhaps you saved yourself from the sea, but I'll make you pay for this, damn it!"

I think Ron Paul can win the Presidency

of Nigeria. I don't know what most Nigerians think of The Federal Reserve System, Gold Standard or the works of Ludwig von Mises, but they are with him on this:

Same-sex sexual activity is punishable by death by stoning in the 12 states that have adopted Shari'a law, and by up to 14 years imprisonment throughout Nigeria. There is no legal protection against discrimination. Very few gays are out, and violence against LGBT people is frequent. Legislation is pending to criminalize same-sex marriage throughout Nigeria.
