Farook clashed with a co-worker over religion just two weeks before

he and his wife stormed an office holiday party in California.

The radicalized San Bernardino gunman clashed with a Jewish co-worker over religion just two weeks before he and his Pakistani wife stormed an office holiday party where they massacred 14 people.
Syed Farook, 28, got into a heated argument with colleague Nicholas Thalasinos, a Messianic Jew who was identified today as one of the victims of Wednesday’s rampage.


Kuuleme Stephens said she had happened to call Thalasinos while he was at work and having a discussion with Farook.

Thalasinos identified Farook by name and told her the 28-year-old believed Islam was a peaceful religion. She added that Farook said that Americans do not understand Islam.

Stephens said both men worked as county restaurant inspectors and regularly discussed politics and religion. Thalasinos was passionate about pro-Israel causes and was known to rant about Islam on Facebook.

The New York Post reported that Thalasinos' Facebook page was filled with negative comments about Muslims and references to his conservative beliefs.

In one of his final status updates on Tuesday, Thalasinos responded to an anti-Semitic tirade allegedly penned by an apparent Muslim living in Ukraine, who railed against Jews and Israel.
‘Anyway my new hobby appears to be BLOCKING PAGAN ANTISEMITIC TROGLODYTES so I'm just passing this along to warn others,’ was Thalasinos' reply.

He was back online early on Wednesday morning sharing articles about Russian President Vladimir Putin and posting a negative comment about President Obama.

The first time I 'saw' the internet was in about 1983. An interesting person

that I still know had a monitor and box in his living room. He had that big box modem he connected with via his telephone handset with that high pitched squeeee noise. You can draw your own conclusions about why a supposedly private person had this type of access back in those days.

The first line of text I ever saw was bracket -care to chat?- bracket, and I saw vividly what potential lay ahead.

The light bulb went off over my head, and I thought to myself, 'fuck! this IS the future! people connected like this can only possibly mean that there really ARE smart people out there!'

I got my first computer and first got online in about 1992. AOL of course. Since then, I've been looking for those forms of intelligent life, and damn.... I still haven't found it.

The world is full of mindless fucking morons. Everyone has an opinion on the same average age level of a toddler, where they feel obligated to say every single mindless stupid thing that floats through their collective brain cells. When the most impressive part of their day is akin to 'look how cute my cat is' and 'Obama is a muslim' I seriously wonder how the human race continues to survive with such idiocy.

Thank goodness for the .00001% that actually use more than 10% of their potential intellect but damn... I haven't found one single source of genuine, collective, comprehensive intellectual dialogue on this world wide web. This site had potential when it first started back in 2001. I was one of the first several hundred people that joined up. We did good work, exposing the election fraud. We changed things here, it was THE battle ground for exposing the election fraud and the bush regime. The group was smarter.

Now, not so much. It's populated by the same mindless morons seeking out their own level and posting about cats and muslims; intent only on trashing and thrashing any single iota of dialogue that disagrees with the haze of their own delusions.

If anyone knows of any sites that actually have decent, intelligent people with a sense of humor, open minded-ness and genuine intellect with an intent to purpose, let me know.

Ahlul Bayt News Agency - The leader of Albu Nimir tribe in Anbar, Naeem Kawood, announced on Saturday the destruction of the ISIS headquarters in the area of Albu Hayat west of Ramadi, while pointed out to the killing of 250 ISIS elements in the region.

Kawood said in a statement that “A force belonging to al-Jazeerah and al-Badiyah Operations, with support from the 7th division of the army, and backed by fighters from the clan of Albu Nimir and al-Jaghaiyfa as well as other clans, had managed to destroy the headquarters of ISIS in the area of Albu Hayat in the city of Haditha (160 km west of Ramadi),” adding that, “250 ISIS elements had been killed, in addition to destroying 15 vehicles for the group, including a booby-trapped vehicle and another that was carrying weapons.”

ok, this is a tough one. There's a FB page that's been in the news a lot lately....

It's called 'No Hymen, No Diamond'. So yeah, the premise alone is freaky and abhorrant for all the obvious reasons. Some righteous chicks have pretty much hijacked it for all the right reasons and have been bashing the sexist freaks around a lot and have pretty much upset its apparent original intent.

Here's the thing, I've been posting there some, always just trying to be fairly reasonable, but sometimes being a real wise ass, etc. But I started seeing some patterns over the past couple of months that sent up some red flags, and in just going through profiles, seeing who is friends with who, seeing certain vernacular and similarities, I've come to the conclusion that this page is has a high probablility of being active in child sex trafficking circles.

It's a hunch, nothing conclusive, just a sick feeling. '(disclaimer, I have never been molested, I have no triggers or history and have never been a victim. I'm just a highly keen observer and well informed)

So.... who does one 'tell' about something like this? It's cross border, a lot of the perverts seem to be in Mexico and a high number in Pakistan and India. Mostly American links though.

Thoughts, ideas? Do I leave it alone or.... what?

Marissa Jenea, the woman who hijacked BLM for her own Agenda.

She's NOT part of the legit BLM movement, she's an attention seeking agitator... So stop pinning all the activities of BLM on this woman. She doesn't speak for them.


The protesters are actually members of a group called Outside Agitators 206. You can see the connection here; this is the same "Press Release" as posted on the "Official" Seattle BLM Facebook Page. I am using quotes, because this is absolutely not an "official" page; it was created extremely recently and it seems to me and many others that these two women have co-opted the BLM movement and name to further their own, more extreme message. This is from their About page:

We are the Outside Agitators 206.
First off, we have four points of unity:

We center Black voices to celebrate and affirm Blackness. We believe that any movement to end anti-Black racism must be led by Black people.
We believe that everyone has a right to resist their oppressors and what resistance looks like varies for different individuals and different circumstances.
We don’t directly speak to corporate media, nor do we need them. We are our own voice.
Fuck the police: As an institution fundamentally rooted in white supremacy and anti-Blackness we reject the police presence in our communities, absolutely. It is our responsibility to hold each other accountable and keep each other safe.

It's easier to get a gun than it is to get birth control.


Love this video.... thoughts? When will the USA stop regulating women's wombs?

What do you love about everyday interactions? The little acts of kindness you see as you go about

your life?

I like the occasional cashier who helps the little frail old man with shaking hands write his check, bag his groceries... I've seen them check dates on food for them to be sure they're not expired, or tie up the bag of apples. I like when they're more patient with our elderly people and don't rush them, huffing and stomping in frustration.

I like when people in line behind the little old man don't start huffing, grumbling and fidgeting while the little old man goes so slowly. When they realize it will be them one day.

I like people who smile and hold open the door, not as an afterthought, but just out of courtesy.

I like when people help a mom with a stroller and toddlers up or down the stairs without even thinking about it.

I like when teenage kids help a person with a heavy suitcase or large parcel up and down stairs or going through doorways.

I like when that guy doing 100 mph around the curve lets me in because my little car doesn't go quite as fast as his, without honking or blasting up my ass.

I like when people actually slow down at crosswalks to let people make their way. It's nice not to be run over!

I like when people come to a full stop at an intersection and look in all directions and let the other person go first, because you know, it doesn't really matter if I get there 3 seconds sooner.

I like when someone doesn't start grimacing and making faces and tsk tsk sounds when a toddler is acting up, because, you know, toddlers do. I like when a total stranger takes a moment to distract the toddler (in a cart, perfectly safe of course) from her tantrum with a smile or funny face or a simple 'hello baby!'

I like when people stop to help someone who's dropped something...

I like when the person with full shopping cart lets the guy on his short lunch break cut ahead in line with his sandwich and bottle of water instead of making them wait 10 minutes.

I like when strangers help someone looking clearly confused and lost, giving them directions.

What kindnesses have you witnessed that make you smile? What kindnesses do you practice every day?

Top 10 Women Tennis Players of all time, guess who is number 1?

And I'll tell you what; the women on this list, with but one exception and all of whom are incredible; have slender, slim, muscular bodies that could (arguably) be described as 'masculine.' The only exception IS Serena Williams, who's body shape is deliciously curvy and muscular, at the same time. She got a lot of grief early in her career for being 'too busty'; you see, according to critics, her boobs would get in the way!

Maybe it's time for the menfolk to re-evaluate their own definition of 'masculine'. Maybe Ms. Williams is re-defining the real shape of women!

Hey, what is masculine these days? Firemen are masculine! I like firemen....

I'm remembering back when President Obama was re-elected, how soooo many people were going on about

how he was going to be a 'lame duck' President. How he was just going to kick back and take it easy... Especially in the mid-term elections with the GOP taking a lot of seats, how he was just going to be defeated at every turn.

Can I say

"SUCK IT" to the GOP in general without getting alerted on?

I'm really, really pleased with this President. He's going to leave some very big shoes to fill.

And he's still got a couple years to go. I can't wait to see what's next on his Biggest Hits list!
