I oft ponder the fact perhaps the Birth Certificate of Adolph was a fraud and his birthplace was Canada.
This is perhaps why they hate the Brits and Americans with such a vehemence - Could it be due to the fact we defeated their hero ??
I have no interest in engaging in a discussion about WW2.

Current events are far more interesting to me.

This story is morphing already......

******

"The department says the snake is generally only permitted in accredited zoos, unless there is a special permit.

Meanwhile, police say that the python that escaped its cage and was involved in the death of two young New Brunswick brothers was being kept in a second-floor apartment — not in the exotic pet store below.

Noah Barthe, 5, and Connor Barthe, 7, were found dead Monday morning an African rock python escaped its cage through a ventilation shaft, and fell into the room were the boys were sleeping."

******

The RCMP have already corrected the ages of the boys to 4 and 6 in a news release, but not the location where the snake was kept. Suddenly the Canadian Press no longer relies on official RCMP news bulletins issued by the RCMP?

The snake didn't kill them kiddies. Python type snakes are not predatory. They lay in wait for their food. The also bite it first and then let go quickly. Then they ingest it. This snake did non of that. Get out the lie detector and question the guy who owned the snake.

It is also impossible for a 15 foot snake to slither up vertical ventilation pipes from a main floor all the way to the roof of a second story and a snake certainly wouldn't just fall though "a hole" in a roof. Too much fiction written into "adventures of snake". But it is a good lesson in critical thinking....people should feel free to question news stories and not believe everything they're told.

This story does sort of remind me of something though......I'll find what later tonight.

Snake attack leaves many questions
KITCHENER — Rob Conrad has handled reptiles for 30 years and he has a few questions about the story of the African rock python that apparently killed two boys in New Brunswick.

"To anyone who keeps reptiles, this story doesn't make any sense," Conrad, the owner of Global Exotic Pets in Kitchener, said Tuesday.

"Snakes don't just strangle and leave things be. They strangle things and consume them. We have to look at science. If a python really attacked a kid, they wouldn't be there. They'd be consumed."

Pythons only attack when they eat, Conrad said. And he hasn't heard any reports of serious wounds on the boys.

He wants to wait for more details on the deaths of the boys in Campbellton, N.B., before drawing any conclusions.

"It's very difficult to comment because nobody really knows what's going on."

But based on what he's heard so far, the story doesn't add up.

Yes, but climbing the outside of a tree is entirely different than slithering up the inside of a ventilation pipe. This this 100 pound snake comes crashing down through a hole in the roof, making not a sound. Everyone sleeps.

You're the most guilible person on earth if you believe the story as written.

Why do you think thy call them snakes? They have been known to come from the strangest places. History tells us to be careful. You never know when one might just come out of no place and eat you alive!

UPDATE: Autopsies scheduled for two N.B. boys killed by python

By Julia Wong

.........RCMP have said the snake reached the two boys through a ventilation system.

<snip>

“We can speculate, with the snake, how they do things, but for the real cause of death we’ll have to wait for the pathologist’s report,” RCMP Sergeant Alain Tremblay told reporters at a Tuesday press conference.

He said investigators would speak with the store’s owner “in a short time,” and wouldn’t speculate on what potential charges might result from the investigation.

“We’re not there yet,” he said.“Yes, I confirmed it’s a criminal investigation because two young boys lost their lives. It’s very serious. But … it’s going to take time.”

Tremblay said police don’t know whether Savoie had the proper licenses needed to keep a prohibited animal such as an African Rock Python.

“We’re just at the first step of this investigation,” he said.“It’s not an easy case.”

What an African rock python usually prefers to eat: monkeys, antelope and crocodiles

I'd like to think this entire story is a fabrication, but it accomplished getting this potential man-eating snake away from a criminal organization consisting of psycopaths.

Python "Nightmare": New Giant Species Invading Florida

September 14, 2009

Already squeezed by the invasion of the giant Burmese python, Florida now faces what one scientist calls one of the U.S. state's "worst nightmares."

Africa's largest snake—the ill-tempered, 20-foot-long (6.1-meter-long) African rock python—is colonizing the U.S. state, new discoveries suggest.

Six African rock pythons have been found in Florida since 2002. More troubling, a pregnant female and two hatchlings have been found, which means the aggressive reptiles have set up house.

More dangerous than even Burmese pythons—which are known to eat alligators (alligator-python picture)—the African pythons are "so mean, they come out of the egg striking," said Kenneth Krysko, senior herpetologist at the Florida Museum of Natural History in Gainesville.

"This is just one vicious animal."

So far the giant snakes have been found only in a single square mile (2.6 square kilometers) of suburban area west of Miami. Pet breeders unprepared for the pythons' ferocity may have released them, Krysko said.

<snip>

"There's a real opportunity to [mount] an aggressive response" to get rid of the African rock python while the giant snake is still limited to a relatively small area, Serbesoff-King added.

One model, she said, may be the "python patrol" that the Nature Conservancy set up in the Florida Keys. After the Burmese python swam from the Everglades to the island chain and began munching rare Keys wildlife, the team started searching for and capturing the snakes to slow the species' spread.

The Florida museum's Krysko and USGS's Reed both agree that the African snake must be knocked out—and now.

Really now?

I seem to remember that the "jackets" were more needed during the Occupy Wall street movement. I also remember them being needed in CA after the Zimmerman verdict. Oh, and let's not forget the Republican National Conventions. Rodney King?

Who are the Obama haters? Typically, they are the Tea Party types that have non-violent assemblies and leave at a reasonable hour. They even clean up the trash after themselves. No burning down businesses, no attacking police officers, no attacking police cars, no fires. Just a general peaceful protest.
