Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

Guess what the cat dragged in?

Well kids, it's started: Former members of ISIS were found among the newest batch of refugees in Germany!

Hate to say it, but .........., "told ya!"
Christina Hendricks: Emmys

The Emmy's were on last night folks, and Christina Hendricks brought her boobs along for the ride!

And that's all I have to say about that!

Don't know if Scott Walker slipped and fell, or was pushed ...., but he's out of the race kids!

MEANWHILE:

Ben Carson is doubling down on his controversial belief that a Muslim should not be elected president, telling the Hill newspaper that the commander in chief should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.”
The Republican hopeful sparked a firestorm on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday when he was asked if a president’s faith should matter in the wake of Donald Trump’s refusal to correct a supporter who falsely asserted President Barack Obama is Muslim.
Carson said it would matter because he does not believe Islam is consistent with the U.S. Constitution.
“I would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation,” Carson said. “I absolutely would not agree with that.”
The retired neurosurgeon elaborated on the issue in his interview with the Hill.
“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson said. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”

(But, as you might expect, his comments raised the ire of some people! -Ed.)

The remarks were met with an immediate backlash, with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, calling on Carson to withdraw from the presidential race.

“Mr. Carson clearly does not understand or care about the Constitution, which states that ‘no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office,’”

CAIR executive director Nihad Awad said in a statement. “We call on our nation’s political leaders — across the political spectrum — to repudiate these unconstitutional and un-American statements.”


“I am very disappointed that Dr. Carson would suggest that a Muslim should not become president of the United States,” Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders said in a statement. “It took us too long to overcome the prejudice against electing a Catholic or an African-American president. People should be elected to office based on their ideas, not their religion or the color of their skin.”

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz agreed.

“You know, the Constitution specifies there shall be no religious test for public office,“ Cruz said in an interview with Iowa Public Television Sunday. “

And I am a constitutionalist.”

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham called on Carson to apologize to American Muslims.

“America is an idea, not owned by a particular religion,” Graham wrote on Twitter. “He is a good doctor but clearly not prepared to lead a great nation.”

Now if Trump said that nobody would have blinked an eye ...., go figure!

Here's a headline for ya, and our new "Asshole of the day" winner!

Young Gentleman Buys Rights to AIDS Drug, Raises Price From $13.50 to $750 a Pill!

 Young Gentleman Buys Rights to AIDS Drug, Raises Price From $13.50 to $750 a Pill
The guy in the photo above is not only taking back all your Sundays, he's also keen on potentially receiving some of your money. 

When former hedge fund manager Martin Shkreli took over the rights to Daraprim as founder of Turing Pharmaceuticals, he conveniently raised the price "overnight" to the all American tune of an "almost 5,500 percent increase" in price. 

Daraprim is used to treat toxoplasmosis, a parasitic infection that's capable of causing life-threatening complications in infants and for "people with compromised immune systems," such as those with AIDS and even "certain" cancer patients.

Embedded image permalink“This isn’t the greedy drug company trying to gouge patients, it is us trying to stay in business,” Shkreli told the New York Times. “It really doesn’t make sense to get any criticism for this.” Shkreli, photographed above in a crisp Brand New t-shirt whilst holding an adorable pet, is clearly perturbed by the fact that people object to the price hike at all.

 Shortly after the price hike spawned a lot of stories like this one, Shkreli took to television in an attempt to clarify the necessity of the 5,500 percent increase and voice his support of a profit-driven healthcare market.
