Pistol for sale: Only used once!

Dear Readers:

Great news for all you right wing radicals, NRA aficionados, hillbilly's, shit kickers and God fearing, commie hating, rubes who aspire to greater things:
Former Florida neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman is auctioning off the pistol he used in the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager.
In an interview with Orlando, Florida, TV station WOFL, Zimmerman said he had just gotten the pistol back from the U.S. Justice Department, which took it after he was acquitted in Martin's 2012 shooting death.
The auction listing on GunBroker.com lists the gun as a 9 mm Kel-Tec PF-9 pistol. The auction begins at 11 a.m. EDT Thursday and ends at the same time Friday. The bidding starts at $5,000. https://www.yahoo.com/news/pistol-used-trayvon-martin-shooting-auctioned-070921052.html?ref=gs
The auction listing also says a portion of the proceeds will go toward fighting what Zimmerman calls violence by the Black Lives Matter movement against law enforcement officers, combatting anti-gun rhetoric of Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and ending the career of Angela Corey, the attorney who led the prosecution against Zimmerman.

It seems the cops chased some guy around for about an hour yesterday and they didn't appreciate him trying to get away, so about half a dozen of them beat the shit out of him once he stopped!

EXTRA, EXTRA, read all about it!

FILE - In this Thursday, Jan. 14, 2016 file photo, Caitlyn Jenner participates in E!'s "I Am Cait" panel at the NBCUniversal Winter TCA, in Pasadena, Calif. On Saturday, April 2, 2015, Jill Soloway, the creator and executive producer of "Transparent," said Jenner is joining the cast of the acclaimed Amazon streaming series. (Photo by Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP)It's a damned good thing Bruce Caitlin Jenner never got his her dick cut off at the same time he she got tits ......, because now that his reality show is not doing as well as he she thought, he's she's thinking of becoming a guy again!

A Kardashian family biographer claims Caitlyn Jenner is experiencing regret over transitioning from male to female. Citing multiple sources close to the star, Ian Halperin told The Wrap that Jenner is considering transitioning back to male “in the next coupleof years.
“She’s thrilled she has raised awareness about how transgender people have long been discriminated against but I think there’s a chance she’ll de-transition in the next couple years,” the writer said. “I don’t think it would surprise anybody in her inner circle. It has been much harder than she anticipated. My heart goes out to her and I know her true friends will be there to support her on whatever path she chooses.      ”http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2016/05/12/caitlyn-jenner-considering-de-transitioning-in-next-couple-years-kardashian-biographer-claims.html?intcmp=hpff
 A rep for the “I am Cait” star did not immediately return requests for a comment.

We have commented on conspiracy theories and all sorts of strange and wonderful stuff on these pages bunky, but THIS has got to be one of the weirdest:
Particle physics and string theory pose plenty of interesting questions, but educators at Massachusetts Institute of Technology this week wrestled with yet another vexing dilemma: "Is Islamophobia Accelerating Global Warming?"
ghassan1The topic was presented by Ghassan Hage, a future generation professor at the University of Melbourne. Hage, who is authoring an upcoming book on the proposed Islamophobia/global warming relationship, has a history of courting controversy and promoting far-left and anti-Israel ideals. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2016/05/12/mit-lecture-is-islamophobia-accelerating-global-warming.html
 I have to do a bit of thinking about this story kids, but I have a feeling this guy is going to be our next "Asshole of the Day!"

Although the majority of Canadians might not realize it, our former Conservative government, along with conservative in the States, the U.K. and other places, have a long tradition of stifling and censoring their scientific communities about stuff they didn't agree with, or just plain didn't like. (Think of stem cell research during the Bush years!)

According to Techdirt Magazine:

Over the years, we've reported on how Canada's previous prime minister, Stephen Harper, tried to stifle dissenting voices among government scientists and librarians, all of whom were expected to self-censor, even outside their work. But as most people know by now, the new Canadian administration under Justin Trudeau has a rather different style, and fortunately that also applies to how it treats its scientists. As an article in Nature reports, things may be moving too slowly for some, but at least they are moving:
Image result for mad scientist clipartThe [Canadian] government is loosening its grip on communications but the shift at some agencies has not been as swift and comprehensive as many had hoped. And with the newfound freedom to speak, the full impact of the former restrictions is finally becoming clear. Canadian scientists and government representatives are opening up about what it was like to work under the former policy and the kind of consequences it had. Some of the officials who imposed the rules are talking about how the restrictions affected the morale and careers of researchers.
 It's important to remember that Canada is not alone in having these muzzling problems. The article notes that during the administration of President George W. Bush, US government scientists complained that inconvenient data was being altered or simply suppressed. More recently, the UK government unveiled plans to forbid its scientists from lobbying for changes in their own field. Although it has now introduced some exemptions from the controversial "gagging clause", these seem half-hearted and possibly temporary. It obviously needs to pay more attention to Justin.
