Steve Bitterman, a 60 year old college professor with two degrees, was fired after telling a couple of his Western Civ students after class that they shouldn't take the first chapter of the Bible literally. Naturally, they reacted in a perfectly appropriate manner: jihad.

"I'm just a little bit shocked myself that a college in good standing would back up students who insist that people who have been through college and have a master's degree, a couple actually, have to teach that there were such things as talking snakes or lose their job," Bitterman said.

Welcome to Jebusistan, Professor Bitterman!

How well do AmeriKKKans who profess to be devout Christians really follow the 700 rules of living found in the 100% true, always to be obeyed, literal Word of God?

Well, there are still plenty of churches that allow women to teach men in direct conflict with 1 Timothy 2:11-13: [11) A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. 12) I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent. 13) For Adam was formed first, then Eve.] By that law in God's Holy Writ, Hillary Clinton should not be President. Or, for that matter, in the Senate.

How about Ecclesiastes 9:8 [Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil.]? A lot of Christian men wear dark suits to church.

And how many adulterers sit in church pews as pillars of the community, instead of being stoned to death as the Bible, the 100% true, must be obeyed, literal Word of God?

Well, A. J. Jacobs' new book, The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible, chronicles his attempt to follow the Bible's rules, all 700 of them, literally. Isn't it ironic that a journalist would make that effort and not a hardcore member of Jebus' flock?

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada have been vocal about how much piracy costs the music industry in the Great White North: $30 billion.

Turns out, they just made the statistic up. "It seems that the RCMP just saw the figure which was plucked out of the bottom of the IACC and printed it as its own. Soon they'll try solving their cases by looking to see who did it on Wikipedia," the article concludes.

Imagine that. Government doing the bidding of lobbyists. Thank goodness it doesn't happen here, eh?

On September 21, Star Simpson, a 19-year-old MIT student, went to Boston Logan Airport to meet a friend. She asked an airline employee where she could meet a plane from Oakland. The employee noticed something odd: Simpson was wearing a computer circuit board with nine flashing lights and a battery attached to it on her hooded black sweatshirt, and she carrying a putty substance that turned out to be Play-Doh, but the employee feared could be plastic explosives.

Simpson was arrested at gunpoint, where she revealed that the circuit board was an art project she was going to wear to career day to impress people.

What kind of idiot do you have to be to wear something like that to the airport?

The blogosphere is pretty much in agreement that this was a gross violation of free speech and a ridiculous attack on art and artists.

Meanwhile, "Down in Louisiana, bayous by and by," two white teenagers drove by the Jena 6 Protesters in a pickup with a noose dangling from the tailgate. They were immediately arrested for incitement to riot.

The blogosphere was quick to condemn the actions of these two idiots. But what if they had been college students known for their cutting edge art?

Star Simpson was just as stupid as those two redneck boys.

I don't care if it's art or not, if you wear what could be construed as a bomb to an airport, you're gonna get arrested. If you put a noose on your truck and drive by black people, you're gonna get arrested. Being a college student is no excuse for stupidity.

China has declared war on AmeriKKKa. Because we won't let meskins into this country to work in factories, we have shipped all that work to China, where they are using lead in paint and other methods to kill our children! The latest assault: Baby cribs.

World Net Daily had a story about this and said:

Of the 152 product recalls announced by the commission since January, 104 have been for products made in China. They include:
  • Portable baby swings that entrap youngsters, resulting in 60 reports of cuts, bruises and abrasions;
  • Swimming pool ladders that break, resulting in 127 reports of injuries, including leg lacerations requiring up to 21 stitches, five reports of bone fractures, two back injuries, two reports of torn ligaments and eight sprained ankles;
  • Faulty baby carriers that result in babies falling out and getting bruised, getting skulls cracked and hospitalizations;
  • Easy-Bake Ovens that trap children's fingers in openings, resulting in burns;
  • Oscillating tower fans whose faulty wiring results in fires, burns and smoke inhalation injuries;
  • Exploding air pumps that have resulted in 13 lacerations including six facial injuries and one to the eye;
  • Bargain-priced oil-filled electric heaters, selling for less than $50, that burn down homes;
  • Notebook computer batteries that burn up computers, cause other property damage and burn users;
  • Circular saws with faulty blade guards that result in cutting users, not wood.

Recently, Mattel apologized to the Chinese for Mattel's design of dangerous toys, especially those with small magnets. While China can't be faulted for building to the blue prints, one has to wonder: Does China own stock in the dangerous companies? If so, the battle for Global Domination won't be fought on the steppes of China, but on the shelves of Wal-Mart.
