Pepsi’s new 1893 brand “original style” cola is a scam, doesn’t list any cocaine on the label.

So much for "the CIA told Bush that Iraq had WMDs".

Bush Lied.
The National Intelligence Assessment was the classified document used to justify the invasion of Iraq. Newly declassified, it tells a much different story than the Bush administration told 12 years ago.

The unredacted document is actually pretty unequivocal. They say on page 5 that Iraq has WMDs. To me it reads as 100% certainty.

Bush lied about the connections to Al Qaeda. Everyone knew that was a lie at the time as well. Bush ignored the alternate view that Iraq was not currently trying to build nuclear weapons.

These days the CIA is more careful about assigning 100% certainty to anything. When they raided Bin Laden's house they certainty was between 50% and 80%. Probably an average of 75% certainty.

Well, damn.

The plane - a single-seater P-47 Thunderbolt - went down two miles (3.2km) south of George Washington Bridge.

Divers later recovered a body - believed to be that of the pilot - from the submerged plane.
A World War Two vintage aircraft crashes into the Hudson River between New York and New Jersey, reportedly killing the pilot.

Bundy complains his Second Amendment rights are being violated while he's in jail.

I don't think they allowed prisoners to go armed even in the Wild West.

Ah yes, because murders are praiseworthy as long as they occur among people who are already locked up for some other crime. All sentences should be randomly made equivalent to death! What a good idea!

Dear Offended Christian, I’m terribly sorry that your feelings are hurt again. I feel badly about that. None of us likes to be criticized, so I totally get it. I know I’ve said some pre…

+Jordan Henderson Please explain how Christians would act differently if they were committing a judgment of condemnation in the various situations I mentioned.  I'm struggling to see how you can deny the condemnation that's occurring.  You seem to admit that it does happen in some of those cases, but don't mention which ones.

If you really want to preserve privacy in the bathroom, prosecute the creeps that violate it.  Hint: that's not the transgendered people -- every person who has been caught in women's rooms peeping or taking pictures/video has been straight and cisgendered.

Here's some examples of refusing service solely on the basis of sexual orientation: http://www.thenewcivilrightsmovement.com/davidbadash/refuse_service_to_gay_persons_homosexuality_is_wrong_michigan_business_owner

Though, honestly, I don't know how you can draw a line.  You may as well refuse to pay them, allow them access to food & water, or offer them medical treatment, because those actions all support their lifestyle, too.

"People learn from conversation and Google can’t have one". That is an extremely silly comment. many people don't learn via conversation and just because you don't learn via conversation doesn't mean that it is not learning.

Introduction
If you're adding me to a circle because you know me, send me a message so I can add you back (preferably via email or just post a message with the distribution set to "+Peter da Silva") because I can't keep track of notifications well enough to be sure I haven't missed someone... especially those of you who I know by an uncommon name.

If you're sending me a notification or an invitation to a community, and you don't know me, I *will* report you for spam. If you're sending me an invitation to a community and I do know you, I will just take this as permission to get sarcastic about it. This includes game notifications. I don't play games in Google Plus. I don't want to play games in Google Plus.
