Proud American: Abdkiarim Hassan Bulshale
Court awards $240,000 to two muslim truck drivers fired for refusing to deliver beer.
“This case makes me proud to be American,” [Abdkiarim Hassan] Bulshale said.
That makes one of us.

There have been recent reports of Muslim bakeries refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding. No one is saying a peep. Breitbart.com I think has done some secret videos.
Indeed there are – difference is, Christians don’t send suicide bombers to TV networks to protest stories, or behead the children of prosecuting district attorneys.

We really are living in Bizarro World. The worm better start to turn soon, or we are all screwed. The pendulum has swung way too far to the left. This is proof positive that the retarded “progressive” dogma is winning.
Just look around you. See what is happening. Calling out injustice and unlawful behavior is now deemed racism. Defending law and order is now considered intolerance. You live an honorable life, but you now need to be burdened by “white guilt”. “Political Correctness” means you can’t express your own beliefs.
Success is bad. If you worked hard, and made some money, it needs to be redistributed. No one is a winner, because winning is bad, and we all get “participation trophies”. Just for showing up. That is the “progressive” definition of winning. It is making a society of losers. “Progressive” regression defined as victory.
Everyone is a victim, and personal accountability counts for nothing. Everything should be free. Health care, college, housing. Free is great. It buys votes. Character, integrity, and honesty no longer count. We vote based on skin color and genetalia. Even though none of that matters, because we are all the same.
This is the “progressive” utopia we are building. Police are vilified, while Freddie Grey is a hero. The POTUS bows down to slums, apologizes for American imperialism, denies American superiority, and inflames racial divisiveness. He isn’t a builder, he is a divider. And he is a commie racist. And a homo. NTTAWWT.
Anyhows, what time are you picking me up tomorrow? Make sure you have a reusable “Treat or Trick” bag. PAPER IS BAD!! Even though it’s a renewable resource.
Speaking of beer and the Mets, I just took a screenshot of Mickster at tonights game:
Hmmm. I wonder if the money will find its way to the Middle East to support the fight against the USA, or perhaps allow the soldiers to buy child brides.
In any event, I doubt the funds will be used to buy candy for trick or treaters.
Global Warming (or Cooling)?
Most Importantly, it appears that NASA’s Scientists are being ignored by NASA Political Agenda employees who spew the Liberal Democratic Agenda (It is a shame that a such a venerable organization is now another propaganda arm of the Democrats), but that is another story.
I usually don’t copy stories due to copyright issues, but I think this is important.
As Sunspots Fade, Will Crop Yields Fall?
NASA predicts fewer sunspots, which may mean cooler weather, lower crop yields, and higher prices. Betting on a correlation as old as Galileo.
Latest in Commodities

A decades-old government crop report, combined with the very latest data from NASA, seem to indicate that there will be poor growing conditions and lower grain yields over the next few years. As a result, traders should expect prices for wheat and corn to rise.
The report from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, published almost four decades ago, studied crop yields in the U.S. from 1866 to 1973. The paper, “Do Sunspot Cycles Affect Crop Yields?” by Virden Harrison, an agricultural economist with the commodity economics division of the USDA’s economic-research service, matched historical crop-yield data for wheat, corn, rice, and cotton with sunspot activity. And National Aeronautics and Space Administration forecasts for sunspots forming on the solar surface suggest that the sun is commencing lower activity that will last for the next five years.
THAT’S BAD NEWS FOR growers because historically fewer sunspots are associated with colder weather and lower crop yields. It has only recently become apparent that the solar cycle hit its peak last year, with the sunspot count in decline since then. “Sunspots are a proxy for the total solar effect,” says Joe D’Aleo, chief meteorologist for agriculture at Weatherbell Analytics. The activity manifests itself as more, or less, ultraviolet radiation, cosmic rays, and geomagnetic activity, all of which act as “magnifiers” to warm, or cool, the planet, he said in a 2014 white paper for INTL FCStone.
It’s worth noting that there are plenty of skeptics who would disagree as to how much alterations in solar activity affect temperatures around the globe and if there is any causation between sunspots and weather. Whether it’s a coincidence is irrelevant for investors as long as the correlation holds, which it has for some time now.
In fact, says Don Coxe, of Coxe Advisors, “It’s a coincidence that has occurred consistently since Galileo’s time.”
Broadly speaking, fewer sunspots, as NASA is projecting, mean chillier weather. That results in lower crop growth and reduced yields. “On the basis of this [forecast for fewer sunspots], we feel the chances of having the kind of growing weather we have had recently is decreasing,” Coxe adds.
HE SAYS THAT THE actual effect partly will depend on where you are on the globe. Most of the world’s grain is produced within northern climates.
How much lower could the yields fall in the downward part of the cycle? A substantial amount, if the findings in the 1976 USDA paper still hold. For instance, it found that the yield of Texas wheat dropped 7% during periods of fewer sunspots. Likewise, corn yields in Illinois were lower by 8%. Both declines were found to be statistically significant, according to Harrison. Other crops and locations were found to show reductions in yields, but weren’t statistically meaningful.
D’Aleo expects the effects of the sunspot cycle to be gradual, with the “big effect later this decade,” when he sees cold weather lingering into spring.
Contracts for soft red winter wheat recently traded at $5.22 a bushel, while those for corn fetched $3.82 a bushel, both on the CME.

And then there’s this.
Everything old is new again.
Peg, it was never old, or perhaps I should say it isn’t new. As the article points out, the presence of Jews in the middle east is intolerable to these people, and has been at least since 1946 (much earlier, actually). The fact that so many Israelis, American Jews ad U.S. administrations persist in a naive belief that a border adjustment will solve the problem is understandable, I suppose, but it’s based on a belief that the Arab world doesn’t mean what it’s been saying all these years: Jews out of “our” lands. Completely.
