    This one's choice.

    "An Indiana man convicted of setting fire to a mosque in Ohio told a judge on Wednesday that he committed the crimes because Fox News and conservative talk radio had convinced him that “most Muslims are terrorists.”"

  2. Duck,
    I heard something about that man in Indiana.

    I don't watch Fox News and, therefore, cannot says as to whether that network reports many stories about Muslims. Fox used to, but some people have told me that the network doesn't do so now.

  3. Duck,
    I Google searched the story that mentioned. The man was from Indiana but set the fire in Ohio.

    According to THIS ARTICLE, he pled guilty:

    Linn will spend 20 years in prison as part of a plea agreement and pay restitution to the mosque.

    Also:

    [He] drank 45 beers in seven hours before setting the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo on fire...

    As long as we're discussing attacks on mosques here in the United States, HERE is another story that is possibly of interest:

    Woman arrested for bringing sword to mosque

    The facility also included a school.

  4. So, while we taxpayers/business people are in a total quandary about tax planning, Obama and all the other idiots in Washington head home for the holidays. The market only dropped 121 points today, more sure to follow. It only costs a few million for Obama to jet off to Hawaii today, returning Wednesday, and I´m sure going back to Hawaii a few days later. Hey, it´s all free! It´s great to be King.
    You think you are getting screwed now? KEEP COUNT on vacations,and their the cost and the First Wookie's famous trips abound the World with her Holly-weird friends too. She has a nasty habit of demanding and GETTING her own airplane every time she wants it.. on our dime
    This sorry excuse for a Man in the White Hut will get his comeuppance. Not sure exactly when, but it´s coming soon, you can bet on it.
    So if your happy with political corruption, inflation, political corruption, worthless currency, sky high gas prices, political corruption, declining living standards, unemployment, massive political corruption, then you should be happy with Obama!
    Note to ALL you brainless Libs who voted for this cretin..
    And I'd like one of you Libs to tell me can you really be that blind and dumb? Are you still in a trance after Obama being elected the first time? Is this the Changed that you hoped for? I don´t think anyone can give an honest estimate of the damage the Clown from Kenyan has done to our great nation. It is immeasurable.
    And for the first time in my life, I see little hope for the United States. I don´t know if the republicans can ever put together a message, plus find good candidates who know how to keep their mouths shut, to take back the congress and the presidency.
    Obama and his team of Socialist's has been and will continue to be totally inept in handling any of this mess that we are in. His focus now is on destroying Republicans, but that fixation is going to be derailed when the world explodes. The Benghazi attack on Sept. 11th cover-up don’t work out too well and they know it.
    Isn't it a bit confusing that all the details of the Bin Laden raid was in and broadcasted to the world in less than twenty four hours, even and including ALL the national security secrets surrounding it, and yet in this case, even thought they ALL watched it in real time the Benghazi raid is still a mystery to the administration. And yet YOU still defend these Creeps! And by Creeps I mean OBAMA, HILLARY and Susan Rice, and who knows who-else.
    Where was our “Commander and Chief” when Americans were calling for help during a seven hour battle. Was he resting up for his next campaign trip when the “Red Phone” rang in the afternoon.
    I Hope you choke on some bad tofu!

    I'm afraid that the preponderance of the American population has exceeded the 'tipping point' and now repose in blissful ignorance. I'm also afraid that if they ever wake up to the fact(s) we will have gone past the point of redemption!

  6. Have no fear, John,

    Things are bound to get worse, and until they literally become IMPOSSIBLE, nothing will be done.

    As long as The Sheeple have a large screen TV, access to pornography and large supply of beer and chips they ain't never gonna care about NOTHIN.'

    Once everyone is out in the gutter, starving, freezing, fighting over the scraps in garbage cans and dying of exposure, then -and only then -- MAYBE could something happen to change Washington, DC.

    Unfortunately, I have just described conditions ripe for the complete takeover of a Marxist Dictatorshit.

  7. Well, yes, RR, of course, BUT George W. Bush was every bit as big a turd as his successor.

    They are ALL turds in Washington, DC. WE just function as their toilet bowl.

    You see -- and this is what NO ONE WANTS TO BELIEVE:

    They are ALL in it TOGETHER.

    The governing process is just a CHARADE.

  8. Jon,

    That's an accurate assessment of the situation.

    Anyone who supported Obama in 2012 will NEVER wake up. I see that reality manifest over and over again in every conversation with every person who supported BHO post-2010.

  9. FT,

    If true -- and it may well be although my better nature doesn't want to believe that it IS true -- then there is nothing that any of us, trapped in the toilet bowl, can do.

  10. Radical Redneck,
    Great comment -- most especially your comparison between the coverage of the killing of OBL and the doings in Benghazi.

    And for the first time in my life, I see little hope for the United States.

    I, too, have reached that point.

    I'm glad that I'm as old as I am! I shall not live to see the worst that America will come -- or so I'm hoping.
