+5CDC Official Calls Obama 'Worst President,' 'Amateur,' 'Marxist' Following the influx of illegal immigrant minors from Central America, an official at the federal agency charged with protecting public health describes Barack Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had,” an “amateur” and “Marxist,” according to internal emails obtained by Judicial Watch. JW got the records as part of an investigation into the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) activation of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to deal with the barrage of illegal alien minors last summer. Tens of thousands of Central Americans came into the United States through the Mexican border and contagious diseases—many considered to be eradicated in the U.S.—became a tremendous concern. The CDC, which operates under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), responded by opening an emergency facility designed to monitor and coordinate response activities to eminent public health threats. This special emergency division was created after the 2001 terrorist attacks and has responded to more than 50 public health threats, including hurricanes, food borne disease outbreaks, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic and the Haiti cholera outbreak. Scientists from across the CDC are brought together to analyze, validate, and efficiently exchange information during a public health emergency and connect with response partners. The EOC also coordinates the deployment of CDC staff and the procurement and management of all equipment and supplies that agency responders may need during their deployment. http://visiontoamerica.com/22902/cdc-official-calls-obama-worst-president-amateur-marxist/#8uJtscTkY0qoqBMZ.99 More
If today an alien species shot a super mind-control beam that made EVERYONE either a) religious or b) non-religious,in general which world would you think would become a better world to live in as time goes by and one where you would rather live in? More
17% a) 29% b) 8% Living in either would have balanced pros and cons.These worlds would be pretty much be the same, so... 8% the one conforming to my beliefs now, DUH! 13% I would rather live with the aliens, humanity sucks 15% What's the point of this being a multiple choice, everyone will most likely pick other or nothing at all anyways.Damn this is a long option. 6% Religious? Ah hell no I am not going to sit through church every Sunday 4% Other
+38Religious people: if an intelligent alien race were to be discovered you would wonder if they have their own version of a messiah/prophet and if they have souls. Amirite?
-6"Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore." You know how when you walk into Fenway Park and look down onto the field, you feel a rush of excitement coursing through you? Funny enough, I feel it too. The only difference is I feel it in the Bronx. My eyes light up at the sight of pinstripes instead of the green monster. And my heart beats only for Derek Jeter. I had never gotten funny looks for wearing a Yankees shirt until I arrived in Massachusetts. The Red Sox have been the evil empire to my rebel alliance. I never fathomed the possibility of reciprocal feelings towards the Yankees. People think that it’s cool that I’m from New York but they can’t seem to wrap their head around the fact that I love the Yankees. Then again, I myself have difficulties accepting the fact that people love the Red Sox as much as I love the Yankees. I was completely ignorant to the fact that Red Sox fans think the Yankees are evil and corrupt money lovers and ne’er-do-wells: that maybe, there was another way to perceive the ancient rivalry that exists between these two iconic teams. Ignorance has been defined as a lack of knowledge or information and therefore it serves as the one true hindrance of acceptance and openness. Perception is heavily influenced by ignorance. As I was born and raised a Yankees fan, I was always taught that the Red Sox were bad: that ALL Red Sox were bad. Therefore, because I thought that Red Sox were bad, I couldn’t imagine that people could love them, because how could you love something so evil? Additionally, I couldn’t even comprehend the idea that people felt the same way about the Yankees. As my roommate said, “You know how in rivalries there is always a good guy and a bad guy? The Yankees are definitely the bad guys.” Needless to say, I’m different here. And it’s not just because I thoroughly enjoy the Yankees, walking, ethnic foods and interesting people. I perceive people differently because of what I’ve been exposed to. I understand that there are different kinds of people and ideas in the world. I think diversity is exciting. In high school, some of the boys spent more time on their hair than the girls and wore wedges to class. If you were to wander the school on any given day you would see girls walking down the hallway hand in hand, spunky innovators coloring on the walls and the oddest collection of people you’ve ever seen clumped together making beautiful music. It was the only place where it was weird to be “normal”. If there wasn’t something interesting about you, if you didn’t have some kind of kink or quirk, you were boring. New York is the same way. Its spontaneity and diversity make it exciting. It is the only place in the world where you can walk around in a neon bunny suit riding a bicycle and not receive head turns or dirty looks (most of the time). It is a place where you can have a conversation on the bus with someone who just came back from the Meth Clinic down the street. As I stroll around my neighborhood, I am greeted by chess games on milk cartons, fortune tellers on street corners and the familiar face of my favorite homeless man playing the electric guitar. From what I have experienced in other places it seems as though people never overstep the boundaries of their comfort zone. People tend to stay away from the people that seem even remotely different from them. Don’t get me wrong, I have met some really nice people and they definitely aren’t bad people. It just feels like they aren’t as excited about “different” as I am. The cultural explosion in New York has made me who I am. The city makes me want to embrace and experience the world. Surviving in the city allows you to develop a sense of fearlessness. There is no such thing as culture shock. I am not afraid of running into a transgendered man wearing hot pants in Forever 21. I am not afraid of walking around the city at 1 in the morning and I think the smell of pee and chicken wings on the subway adds to its charm. But maybe we’re all most comfortable with what we’ve always had and what we’ve always been exposed to. I may feel like an alien here, but you may feel like an alien in New York or someplace else, just because it’s different. More
