This is absolutely horrible!

HOLLEY NEW YORK...HELL ON EARTH

An estimated 1,000 innocent, adorable squirrels, many of them pregnant mothers or mothers tending newborns who will be left to die, will be brutally sought out in the woods they call home and murdered tomorrow in what the Holley NY Fire Department has promoted for several years running as a fun-filled contest for prizes to see who can kill the biggest squirrel, or the heaviest group of squirrels, all in the name of raising money for the fire department. This despite the outcries and pleas of thousands of goodhearted people. Many of these squirrels have been fed and baited to make them heavier and gain their trust. But tomorrow when they come for their daily nuts, they'll be met with slaughter.

Children 12 years and over have been invited by the Holley Fire Department to partake in the grisly massacre. Offers like the one extended by For The Love Of Alex to pay a sum equal to the net proceeds of their "fundraiser" in exchange for cancelling the event were disregarded and ignored. So it's not about the funds, is it? It's all about the kill.

For those of us who understand and appreciate that all life matters, that every living being is on the same journey, that the right to life is divine, our hearts will die a thousand times tomorrow. For the tiny peaceful beings who stand no chance against humans and their weapons, for the deception and trickery of baiting, for the suffering they will know, and for their unborn and newborns left to die. How horrible is mankind. The personification of evil.

Shame on all the media and government officials who were contacted to help in the fight to stop this and never even uttered the slightest response. Kudos to Jane Velez Mitchell for calling attention to this and trying to help stop it on her Facebook page, the only well-known person we are aware of to do so. Shame on Holley NY for your despicable actions and evil mindset, for indoctrinating children to your concept that life has no value whatsoever.

This is particularly horrible. Do they even have a squirrel problem in the first place?

If not, this is essentially killing prisoners for... well, no good reason at all.

Don't forget that Microsoft recently invested a very large sum in Cyanogenmod.

It couldn't be happening to a meaner and more despicable person. You just have to love it.

What's this post-apocalyptic wasteland, you ask? 

Oh, just ExxonMobil Corporation making "safe" and reliable energy, just as their television commercials tout. Essentially, your desire for cheap and dirty energy harms your fellow citizens.

It was Joseph de Maistre who wrote in 1811 "Every nation gets the government it deserves."

Boris Nemtsov was an opposition to Putin. Shot and killed today. Just like many others before him (Listyev 20 years ago almost to the day).

Not too far from "lobnoe mesto" in Red Square. It was the traditional place for executions in tsarist times. But in those days, they were more likely to draw and quarter the victim.

Gee, I wonder who had him killed?
Nemtsov served as a governor and deputy prime minister in the 1990s. He later became an opposition leader and sharp critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin. He was killed on a street in Moscow.

To be fair, a significant number of parties would benefit from the impression that Putin has his political opponents whacked.

Well, there you go. Proof that Climate Change is all made up.

Stop electing these idiots to office!
The Senate's most vocal critic of the scientific consensus on climate change used the snowball as part of his case for why global warming is a hoax.

Hands down, the best coffee shop in Belleville. There are other coffee shops in town but they don't even compare. The owner and employees are the friendliest people around, they have Vegan options for frozen yogurt, they serve homemade breakfast sandwiches with, again, Vegan options, and the coffee is locally roasted, organic, and single-sourced. This is a downtown treasure that my family and I LOVE supporting (almost on a daily basis).

Old Town Coffee Tea & Spice is exactly what my wife and I have been looking for since we moved to the DC Metro area almost two years ago. We love good coffee and the selection here is wonderful. Whole bean, many choices, very affordable and the staff is very helpful. It's located in Old Town, Alexandria, which is a very nice bonus since I'm always looking for excuses to go there. We will be going back again and again and telling all of our coffee drinking friends about this place.

I love Irish Pubs (good Irish Pubs) and O'Connell's didn't disappoint. My wife and I are new to the area, having just moved here from Indianapolis and love finding new places where we can hang out and have a good beer. Located in Old Town Alexandria, this pub fits right in with the "old charm" of the neighborhood. The staff is very friendly, the decor is wonderful (dark woods everywhere - looks very Irish), the food is very good (but as a Vegan, I would like to see more options). My favorite, and only real option, is the hummus/veggie platter, which, is very good. For $8, you get enough to feed more than one person. They have a great beer selection on tap but I would like to see more local selections. At the time of our visit, there was just one local beer on tap. Also, it would be nice to have wireless connectivity available. This would be a great place to come for a beer early in the afternoon and get a bit of client work done. Overall, I highly recommend O'Connell's and I am absolutely positive that my wife and I will be back again and again. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the lack of Vegan food options and the lack of wireless connectivity.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. Regarding the food, I'm a Vegan and there really wasn't anything for me but my wife and kids found some great options. The shopping is the part of the visit that we enjoyed the most. We just moved to the area and we were looking for some local art to hang on the walls. We met some great local artists and purchased some great art. We are really looking forward to our next visit. The Eastern Market is definitely a gem in a great city!

4 months back, I was in the market for a new web host. I had tried many of the larger hosts but none of them really impressed me. I experienced many outages with no explanation as to why the outages even happened. I decided to start looking at some of the smaller companies hoping for a better experience. I moved my site to IQnection and I couldn't be happier. Great customer service and my sites run great. In the 4 months that I've been with them there has only been one outage and, as it turns out, the problem wasn't even with their equipment. Customers were updated regarding the issue via social media until the issue was resolved. That is exactly the kind of service that I was looking for. If you're in the market for a new web host, I would definitely give them a try. They are very affordable and offer some great plans.

My wife and kids and I spent a beautiful November day at the Eastern Market. While there, we decided to try brunch at Tunnicliff's Tavern just across the street. Our visit didn't disappoint. Great food, excellent and friendly service, great atmosphere and some great beer on tap. The only complaint (and it's really not a complaint) is that there weren't many choices for local beer. Add a few more local selections and there wouldn't be a reason to eat or drink at any other pub/tavern in the neighborhood. All in all, an excellent visit and we can't wait to drop in again.
