First Robot Wedding In Japan

See, we told you things like would happen if courts changed the definition of marriage.

Artificial Intelligence Machine Gets Testy With Its Programmer  (What could possibly go wrong here>)

Gosh, How Could This Have Happened?

Investigators are blaming mistakes by IRS employees — not a criminal conspiracy — for the loss of thousands of emails related to the tax agency's tea party scandal.

IRS workers erased 422 computer backup tapes that "most likely" contained as many as 24,000 emails to and from former IRS official Lois Lerner, who has emerged as a central figure in congressional investigations, according to IRS's inspector general.

(Yes, of course, that was only an accident.)

Study: Chimps Know Right From Wrong

Utterly Disgusting and Reprehensible

More Proof Lefties are Utterly Whacky

Apple removes all American Civil War Games from the App Store because of the Confederate Flag  (I would ask 'Are they out of their minds?' but that question has already been answered in the affirmatiave.)

Racism and Progressives

Roger SimonI am uniquely positioned to say this because I spent most of my life on the Left and was a civil rights worker in the South in my early twenties. I was also, to my everlasting regret, a donor to the Black Panther Party in the seventies.

So I have seen this personally from both sides and my conclusion is inescapable.  The Left is far, far worse. They are obsessed with race in a manner that does not allow them to see straight.  Further, they project racism onto others continually, exacerbating situations, which in most instances weren’t even there in the first place.  From Al Sharpton to Hillary Clinton, they all do it.

Barack Obama is one of the worst offenders in this regard.  Recently, in reaction to the horrid actions of the deranged, but solitary racist Dylann Root, the president claimed racism is in our DNA.

How could he possibly utter such nonsense and who was he talking about?  The majority of Americans are from families that came to this country after slavery existed.  Many of those were escaping oppression of their own.  In my case my family was fleeing  the pogroms of Eastern Europe.  Many of the members of my family who stayed behind ended up gassed in Auschwitz or starved to death in Treblinka.

Utterly Dishonest

A New York Times op-ed and now a story purporting to show that rightwing extremists are more dangerous than Muslim terrorists is so utterly dishonest it would have been given an "F" in any legitimate journalism school  (Not that we have any in these politically correct days.) This is the narrative the NYT and other lefting outlets are pushing but it's not true.

The story states "Since Sept. 11, 2001, nearly twice as many people have been killed by white supremacists, antigovernment fanatics and other non-Muslim extremists than by radical Muslims: 48 have been killed by extremists who are not Muslim, compared with 26 by self-proclaimed jihadists."

The obvious and dishonest problem with this is the arbitrary cutoff date.  Why pick Sept. 11, 2001? The reason is obvious. If you include it the figures turn the other way - 48 by other extremists. 4,000-plus by jihadists. If the authors of this study included 9/11, it would disprove their point.

Certainly a more honest date to use would be to begin the study at Jan. 1, 2001, the beginning of the 21st century.

The second major problem is the survey only counts deaths. It ignores the hundreds of lethal plots discovered and stopped by law enforcement authorities. If the shoe bomber of the underwear bomber had been successful, it would  have increased the death toll from Muslim terrorists considerably. The study authors conveniently left that out.

These two points alone make the study totally bogus.

Christians Forgive the Unspeakable

Kirsten Powers: Forgiveness shown by the Charleston victims' families staggers the world.   

(An extremely powerful and poignant column. It mentions not only the Charleston massacre but also terrible crimes that Christians responded to my grace. The scriptures say we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against demonic forces. Those are our real enemies.
