Extremists re-write history for an entire generation of American Kids.

I haven't seen anyone talk about this here, forgive me if its already been discussed.

So all over the news is how the Texas Board of Education, lead by uber douche bag Don McLeroy, is changing the history written in text books for all American kids. Mcleroy by the way has been voted out but unfortunately he's still in office for a while more. I mean seriously listen to this bitch.

Internet: twisted or correct mirror?

G'day, all you hectically typing internet junkies online pals who use the web solely for education & entertainment! While you're reading this text, hundreds of millions of people around the world are maintaining their own active profiles on some of the myriad of social networks. But have you wondered, how much does it really correspond to their true identity? And, are people overall cheaters, or most of those profiles reflect their true character, tastes and inclinations?

According to the shrinks, this question is becoming ever more important these days. Now in the 21st century, an unprecedented number of people communicate via social networks, blogs, forums and software like Skype and ICQ. The youngsters (and not only them) are using the so-called virtual space as a significant factor for forming their real life. Who hasn't heard of a married couple who've met online, or someone who found a job via Facebook? I personally know a couple, each of them from two opposite parts of a continent, who met through mIRC and married and now they live together and have a family (I was at their wedding, we called it 'the mIRC wedding').

The war next door.

LA UNIÓN, Mexico — Gunmen believed to be linked to drug traffickers shot a pregnant American consulate worker and her husband to death in the violence-racked border town of Ciudad Juárez over the weekend, leaving their baby wailing in the back seat of their car, the authorities said Sunday. The gunmen also killed the husband of another consular employee and wounded his two young children.

[The shootings] came during a particularly bloody weekend when nearly 50 people were killed nationwide in drug-gang violence, including attacks in Acapulco as American college students began arriving for spring break.

The killings followed threats against American diplomats along the Mexican border and complaints from consulate workers that drug-related violence was growing untenable, American officials said. Even before the shootings, the State Department had quietly made the decision to allow consulate workers to evacuate their families across the border to the United States.

The Aztecas and other gangs have more sophisticated firepower than the Mexican Army does, and President Calderon has not been able to control the situation. Phoenix, Arizona has the 2nd largest number of drug-related kidnappings for ransom in the world - Mexico City is 1st. It's a little sideline business the drug cartels have going.

What happens when La Familia starts shooting city council members in Atlanta, or beheading people in Dallas? Or perhaps a federal courthouse being bombed?

Or do you seriously doubt it will reach that point?
