Not for the Squeamish!!

Dog Pack Kills Gator in Florida -- At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.

The alligator, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the apex predator in it's natural Eco-system, can still fall victim to implemented team work strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and survival of the fittest pack mentality, bred into the canines over the last several hundreds of years by natural selection. Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the gator preventing it from breathing, while the remainder of the pack prevents the beast from rolling. Definitely, Not for the squeamish!

Teacher burns U.S. flag

Dave Halden, who teaches seventh-grade social studies, burned American flags in two different classes Friday and asked students to write an opinion paper about it. A teacher in the Jefferson County school district since 1979, Halden has been temporarily reassigned to non-instructional duties pending a district investigation. Halden could not be reached yesterday for comment.

Kentucky has a statute making desecration of a national or state flag in a public place a misdemeanor, but the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that flag desecration is protected speech. The American Civil Liberties Union of Kentucky said the federal ruling would trump the state statute.

After class, Halden decided to show his support for the ACLU by burning another flag. (see above).

Cost of flag: $25, Cost of gasoline $2,

Value of asshole catching on fire: PRICELESS

Bush: B-2 Flights Over Tehran for ‘Peaceful Purposes’

(2006-08-26) — Just hours after Iran opened a new plant capable of making plutonium “for peaceful purposes”, U.S. President George Bush assured his Iranian counterpart that any B-2 bombers that appear over Tehran in the near future would also serve peaceful purposes.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad cut the ribbon on the new heavy-water nuclear plant Saturday as part of a month-long Iranian tribute to the effectiveness of the United Nations.

Mr. Bush hailed Iran’s “transparent diplomacy” and said, “I called President Ahmadinejad today to congratulate him, and I told him that if he happens to notice one of them Stealth bombers going over his town at about 600 miles per hour, he can be assured that the pilot has only the best intentions in his heart for world peace.”

“There’s nothing like the B-2 when it comes to giving peace a chance,” Mr. Bush added.
