Excellent article on the Trayvon Martin case.
By Jack Cashill
On the rainy night of February 26, 2012, neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman shot and killed an unarmed seventeen-year-old named Trayvon Martin. Three months later, a regular at the Conservative Treehouse blog known as Diwataman discovered the raw video of Martin’s visit to the 7-11 that fateful night and initiated arguably the best bit of blogging detective work since the busting of Dan Rather’s Air National Guard scam eight years earlier.
“I think Trayvon may know these three guys,” Diwataman commented in reference to a trio of hooded young men who entered the store almost immediately after Martin left. For a variety of good reasons, Diwataman labeled the guys “the three stooges,” and the name stuck. What Diwataman discovered quickly is that the blogger “noneyobusiness” had already come to the same conclusion. Together, they and other “Treepers” from the Treehouse — “People help each other out,” says Diwataman — reconstructed Martin’s final hour in a way that was wildly at odds with the scenario advanced by the major media but much closer to the truth. In all versions, the iconic bag of Skittles is at the heart of the story.
On March 7, 2012, in the first national news story on the case, Reuters led with the Skittles angle: “Trayvon Martin was shot dead after he took a break from watching NBA All-Star game television coverage to walk 10 minutes to a convenience store to buy snacks including Skittles candy requested by his 13-year-old brother, Chad.” Reuters attributed this information to Martin family attorney Benjamin Crump. “What do the police find in his pocket? Skittles,” Crump told Reuters. “A can of Arizona ice tea in his jacket pocket and Skittles in his front pocket for his brother Chad.”

…is easy to find, but this one takes the dumb shit prize.
What a fucking moron.
Only a moron can make the connection that a tornado was caused by global warming.
They did the same shit when it was global cooling that was going to destroy the world.
The sky is falling…
Flashback 1975: Outbreaks Blamed On Global COOLING…
While many Americans were tuned into news coverage of the massive damage from tornadoes ravaging the state of Oklahoma, Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse took to the Senate floor to rail against his Republican colleagues for denying the theory of anthropogenic global warming.
Whitehouse spent 15 minutes chastising GOP senators and justified his remarks by alluding to states that seek federal assistance in the wake of natural disasters.

This is an absolute failure at the highest levels of government.
This whole affair is a disgrace.
Injured soldier outraged suspected shooter receives salary while his family financially struggles in recovery
The Department of Defense confirms to NBC 5 Investigates that accused Fort Hood shooter Major Nidal Hasan has now been paid more than $278,000 since the Nov. 5, 2009 shooting that left 13 dead 32 injured. The Army said under the Military Code of Justice, Hasan’s salary cannot be suspended unless he is proven guilty.
If Hasan had been a civilian defense department employee, NBC 5 Investigates has learned, the Army could have suspended his pay after just seven days.
Personnel rules for most civilian government workers allow for “indefinite suspensions” in cases “when the agency has reasonable cause to believe that the employee has committed a crime for which a sentence of imprisonment may be imposed.”
Meanwhile, more than three years later soldiers wounded in the mass shooting are fighting to receive the same pay and medical benefits given to those wounded in combat.
