Why is this a surprise? We've had feral chimp attacks in the US for decades now (although they've REALLY been in full swing since baruck started acting the fool).....

Monkey rips off baby's testicle at Chinese zoo by:

Staff writers

A MONKEY has savagely attacked an eight-month-old baby, ripping off one of his testicles and eating it while his mother changed his nappies at a Chinese zoo. The horrifying incident took place at Guiyang Qianling Wildlife Park in Guìyáng, southwest China, The Daily Mail reports.

A man reportedly tried to help by picking up the testicle when it was dropped by the monkey, but the animal snatched it back and ran away.

Critics see contradictions in Obama administration's Syria claims
The sometimes-tortured quality of the argument was apparent over the weekend as some officials claimed that the strikes would shift the momentum of the Syrian war, and others said it would largely be unchanged.
Denis McDonough, the White House chief of staff, said on “Meet the Press” that “there is no doubt that momentum on the battlefield will be changed by a targeted, limited effort.”
But the day before, a senior administration official briefing reporters on Secretary of State John Kerry’s airplane predicted the war will “grind on” after the strikes.

A couple days back, I watched a round-table of reporters laughing at video snippets of John Kerry's Congressional Testimony. In the beginning, he declares that the Boy Messiah only wants a very limited, brief and narrowly defined military strike in Syria.

But at the end, he says that anything can happen in these situations and so we shouldn't take anything off the table including boots on the ground.

Hilarious, stupid, contradictory and typical Magic Negro stuff.

Gay Inmates in California Can Get Married

By Patrick Range McDonald
Thu., Sep. 5 2013 at 1:24 PM

With the demise of Proposition 8 -- the gay marriage ban -- gay inmates in California can get married to their same-sex partners, the Associated Press has reported.

In an August 30 memo, state prison officials stated that due to the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that "effectively invalidated" Proposition 8, they "must accept and process applications for a same-sex marriage between an inmate and a non-incarcerated person in the community, in the same manner as they do between opposite sex couples."

In case you didn't notice the wording, there is a caveat in that statement...

While a gay inmate can marry a person who is not jailed, two gay inmates cannot get married.

California prison officials state in the memo that there are "security concerns and other legitimate penological interests" for why two gay inmates cannot wed.

It'll be interesting to see if someone challenges that ruling with a lawsuit.

In the meantime, same-sex marriages between an inmate and someone who's not incarcerated can only take place at a jail facility where the inmate is held, but a prison chaplain can refuse to marry the couple based on religious grounds.

So prison officials will allow a person who is "lawfully authorized" to come in and perform the ceremony.

Thank you!

Progressive secularism has been growing since the 1960s. It's almost like an excuse to have no moral integrity or rationality.

It's now reached its peak. Where it goes from here depends on how bad things get and the majority.

Good. Because NDEs can no more be denied by scientists who have studied people who've experienced them for decades than astronauts, scientists, experienced airline pilots and retired top military who are lobbying to have a Congressional hearing to expose the reality of UFOs.

In other words, a strike might successfully impede Assad's military objectives, be an abject failure, or start WWIII.

That pretty much covers all bases. Liberals much prefer vague generalities. Just like stonewalling and covering up incompetency and abuses of power.

The government has run amok. It can't manage itself and there is more waste than we can even imagine.
If it weren't for the Feds keeping the economy afloat, we'd be in much bigger trouble. But the Catch 22 is the Feds are pulling back and plan to stop the presses next year.
We elected, perhaps, the most inexperienced and incompetent president twice in one of the worst possible times in our history. But it's not who we elect but who elects them.
And why I agree with you. We're at a crossroads, and if the left continues to pull the rest of the country down the wrong path, there may no turning back.
It's the liberal media who is the biggest threat to our republic.
Yep. And that's why the nazis had the same problems with their liberal press.
