A widely circulated image does not depict a "pro-ISIS rally" held in Dearborn, Michigan, on 5 December 2015.

 

(Snip)

 

Origins: On 5 December 2015 Facebook user Mickey Knox published the above-reproduced Facebook status update, claiming that a "pro ISIS rally" had taken place in Dearborn, Michigan on that date. The image was widely circulated via social media, with all iterations lacking any substnative information about the rumor attached to it:

We contacted the City of Dearborn's Public Information and Police departments to ask about the photograph. The individuals to whom we spoke confirmed that no such rally had taken place in Dearborn on 5 December 2015, or at any other time.

 

The source of the image is uncertain. However, Detroit station WXYZ published an article on the same day as the Facebook post titled "Hundreds of People in Dearborn Are Taking a Stand Against ISIS and Terrorist Attacks," an article that reported:

 

Hundreds of Arab Americans in metro Detroit are taking a stand against ISIS and terrorism

.

This weekend, they gathered for a peaceful protest against hate outside of the Karbala Islamic Center in Dearborn.

Images tweeted by WXYZ included similar weather conditions and the presence of multiple flags (none of which were the sort linked with the Islamic State):

Well that took around 37.5 seconds to find out the truth.

The Week in Pictures: Steve Harvey Edition
Steven Hayward
December 26, 2015 by

I have a hunch Steve Harvey is going to be the gift that keeps on giving, for his horrendous gaffe at the Miss Universe competition last week. Donald Trump noted that if he was still running Miss Universe, a mistake like that wouldn’t have happened, which suggests the proper slogan for Mr. Trump: “Make Miss Universe Great Again!” I’d trust him with that job. He seems to be quite talented in spotting comely ladies. But was it really a mistake? The grassy knollers have weighed in that Harvey’s blunder was really a conspiracy to juice ratings for the flagging pageant. Hmm: Maybe the whole Trump campaign is an RNC plot to hide the real candidates until later and make them look good by comparison.

Why do I get the feeling he has other....issues.

 

Now I'm a fairly simple guy, so IMO if you can write your name in the snow...you're a man......and

If this is how you dress....you're a freak...run away to the circus.

 

Thank sooooo much for sharing

What struck me the most, was how the children were asked to write letters about how they felt, and then criticized for saying how they felt publicly. They are being used to show how sad and traumatic his life is. What incredible selfishness! To be so wrapped up in your own victimization that you do not see what impact you are having on your children. My job as a parent is not to crush my child's feelings about me, but to work together to move through them and become closer. He is sacrificing them at the alter of Selfishness and victimhood. So very heartbreaking.

This is what a family of morons looks like

 

Some people should not be allowed to breed.

I don't know, @Valin. There might be something to it.

Gender dysphoria is a real mental illness. The trick these days is finding a Psychologist who can help undo the dysphoria rather than just support succumbing to it as the preferred course of treatment. It is always better to cure mental illness than to play along with it. With many transgender cases, I fear we have lost our bearings as a society. I recently read an incredible article from a prominent politically liberal psychologist who is supportive of gay/lesbian rights, but is extremely concerned that our society is now embracing gender dysphoria and other extreme mental illnesses as lifestyle choices or mistakes of birth.

 

But at the end of the day, what bothers me most about this child is that she is now a poster child and the media attention is not ever good for a family. There is a difference between being ashamed of your existence and trumpeting your "journey" through the media. That never ever ends well.

Sweet @pollyannaish!

It's liberating to confront your personal problems as an adult.

 

"Adult" implies a certain stability & soundness that sometimes (hopefully) comes with age & experience. Children need sane adult guidance, until they can reach that stability.

 

How can our surreal society produce sane adults? We live in an altered reality of governmentally regulated "happy feelings" and outcomes based on a steady diet of fairy dust & unicorn poop.

 

It becomes just one more revolutionary act to insist that your children accept responsibility for their own lives & happiness...instead of insisting that it is "someone" else's duty to make you so.

I'd make a small wager these kind of people have always been with us, on the fringes of society, what The Net does is allow us all to either or "celebrate" their bravery and the "wonderful diversity" we enjoy today, or rail against this. Either way these people get what they really want...LOOK AT ME LOOK AT ME...PAY ATTENTION TO ME.

Looks like one of Bernie's boys got pointed to the wrong room.

 

FYI... here's a shot from the combined Bush/Kasich/Huckabee town hall meeting on the other side of town.

Wow... I'd feel good about flying out of Chicago's O'Hare and Midway. Good thing they don't have any terrorist activities up there.

 

The Airport Police who are generally Chicago City Police are not allowed to carry guns in these two airports... Then told to "run and hide".

 

Police Taunting replaces guns in Chicago!

Here's what I envision with the "New Normal" with the Jihadist being the English and the Airport Police as the French.

Old English Words We Should Still Use Today

13 of these old words, from Business Insider (links to more below):

Author Mark Forsyth writes about the words we've lost. From his book "Horologicon" to his Tumblr and published articles, we compiled a list of the best words that need reviving.

1. Ultracrepidarian (n):"Somebody who gives opinions on subjects they know nothing about."

There was butterbar when I was stationed at Duluth who wanted to do that (send us out with no ammo). He found we were 8 rounds short on .38 ammo. It might have worked except he couldn't answer a question the Flight Chiefs asked him..."What Are You Going To Tell The Base Commander When There Are no Cops Patrolling The Base?" biggrin.png
