We all just love surprises, no? Well, most people seem to even if I don’t although I have to admit some surprises can be entertaining.
Judge Nielsen was all verklempt over a lawsuit against a local mosque, the Islamic Education Center of Tampa so what else could he do but conclude, ”This case will proceed under Ecclesiastical Islamic Law” to determine whether the mosque followed Koranic law in a matter involving an Islamic scholar: http://bit.ly/gtALT4
The mosque attorney made more sense than the judge when he said, “The mosque believes wholeheartedly in the Koran and its teachings. They certainly follow Islamic law in connection with their spiritual endeavors. But with respect to secular endeavors, they believe Florida law should apply in Florida courts.”
Makes sense to me. I mean, Tampa isn’t London.
Equally surprising, and galling, was the decision by Eric Holder’s Department of Justice to deny justice in school bullying situations–an area of law for which we are still searching for federal constitutional authority–toward straight white people. President Obama and AG Holder have already, repeatedly, demonstrated an antipathy toward white Americans and now have furthered that discrimination by vowing to apply federal law selectively.
They will “enforce federal laws that protect students from discrimination and harassment at school because of their race, national origin, disability, religion, and sex, including harassment based on nonconformity with gender stereotypes.” http://bit.ly/dE2r6H
If you’re some poor, normal white kid being harrassed, pummeled, discriminated against, you’re SOL. If you’re black, yellow, Kenyan, Buddhist, gay, transgendered, the feds have your back.
Another surprise, at least to our present government, is that all those millions of illegal aliens–sorry, undocumented, poor people simply in search of a better life for themselves and their families–aren’t quite what we’re told they are. In fact, they’re not even Marines!
“Border Patrol agents recently arrested 13 illegal immigrants disguised as U.S. Marines and riding in a fake military van. The illegal immigrants were clad in Marine uniforms when they were apprehended at the Campo Border Patrol Westbound I-8 checkpoint at 11 p.m. on March 14 near Pine Valley, Calif:” http://fxn.ws/hzE9iM
Precisely who they are and what their intentions were in being smuggled into the U.S. by two American citizens are as yet undetermined. It’s fairly certain they didn’t plan to contribute much to gringo society.
DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano, who believes our borders are as secure as all getout, will surely get to the bottom of all this. Big Sis Janet’s task might be facilitated by the fact all 13 rocket scientist, pseudo-Marines wore the same name tag on their pseudo-uniforms, ”Perez.”
Fidel, 84 year old inveterate trickster that he is, revealed that it’s been all a charade these last five years and that he long ago resigned from all his official positions, including head of Cuba’s Communist Party which he founded in 1965.
“The Communist Party website still lists him as first secretary, with his brother President Raul Castro listed as second secretary.” Proving once more his patriotism and selflessness, Castro said, “I resigned without hesitation from my state and political positions, including first secretary of the party. . . and I never tried to exercise those roles again,” even after his health began to improve, even after “everyone, affectionately, continued to refer to me by the same titles.” http://aol.it/gjYs3S
What a guy!
What the addled Fidel fails to mention in his self-accolade are the tens of thousands of Cubans he slaughtered during his extended reign of terror and his brutal–but always affectionate–subjugation for half a century of his fellow Cubans.
If we define “surprise” as occurring without warning, the news about Judge Nielsen, Eric Holder, Big Sis, and Fidel can’t be considered true surprises. Still, all that news is sort of entertaining, sort of.
