Raunchy dangdut music stirs debate in Indonesia

I have listen to dangdut music and they all sound the same thing to me. A lot of beats with booty shaking.

All about himself and trying to inspire others to act like him. Somehow it worked with Bolivia, the problem is than the country is way poorer than Venezuela.

NYC Bans Halloween, Birthdays, Aliens and More on School Tests

Students in New York City’s public schools cramming for tests can delete words like birthdays, junk food, Halloween, dinosaur and even dancing from study lists.

Clearly "birthday" is offensive to the paradoxically-living.

Quote:
A spokeswoman for the Department of Education told the Post the banned topics do not constitute censorship but a way for “students to complete practice exams without distraction.”
They aren't allowed to print something onto a test. How is that not censorship?

It isn't censorship really, but it IS utter banal evilly stupid. Sounds like the Department of Education in that state could be sliced out of the budget without any negative effect at all. They're spending all of their time trying to sterilize the information for fear of exposing students to (gasp) other ideas. That means the legal department controls the situation rather than educators, I suppose.

Rolling along in Idiocracy....

The utter absence of any forensic evidence will forever make this a "he said/he said" affair, or would if one of them weren't already dead. All kinds of claims have been made about grass stains on Zimmerman's head and how he was punched in the face by Martin. Why aren't there any photographs of how Zimmerman appeared after the confrontation that might support his claims? Oh, right, the Sanford police didn't bother to take any. How about skin samples from under fingernails and the like? Blood stains on Martin's corpse that match Zimmerman's blood? The list can go on and on.

We're simply left with the impression that Zimmerman told the police that he felt threatened and shot Martin in self-defense, and the police replied, "Sorry about that. Here's your gun. We'll take care of the rest."

You don't say ? But among the older ones, there are few good ones. For example :

WTF?
This has got to be some kind of a joke.
Banning the word Dinosaur because of possible fundamentalist students?
Holloween because of paganism?
Birthday because of Jehovah's witnesses?
Are they for real?

Nobody ever said that NYC public schools are good. In fact, most are absolutely terrible, and many parents prefer Long Island schools more.

One of the working legends of bluegrass, Earl Scruggs, passed away today at the age of 88.

Turns out there was video shot of Zimmerman's arrival at the Sanford PD. He looks essentially uninjured without any evidence of the broken nose or head wounds that have been previously alleged.

I came here to post that. This makes me very mad. He said in his latest claim that Martin attacked first, threw him to the ground, and was smashing his head into the pavement. He said he had blood and grass stains on his clothes, a broken, bloody nose, a fat lip, and a bloody gash on the back of his head. In this video of him, there is NONE of that. Zimmerman has lied twice about what happened that day (he gave one story, and then changed it a few days ago). We CAN'T believe his accounts. Also, some eyewitness accounts claimed to see Martin hurting Zimmerman while he was on the ground. Yeah, those are people covering for Zimmerman. For what ever reason, some people felt the need to lie for Zimmerman.

Not only does this mean that Zimmerman lies about his accounts, in the altercation, he was doing more than fine. Not a scratch is on him. So was Zimmerman ever screaming for help? Not likely. Trayvon probably did all the screaming. And this shows that the police department screwed up yet again. Zimmerman made claims of being bloody after an altercation, and the police department knew about those false claims; whenever Zimmerman made them, and never brought him back in for questioning.

I'm actually not just mad about this video, but a bit happy, in a way. After reading many articles on this case, I just didn't trust that Zimmerman's accounts were correct. This shows he is a huge liar. Also, this is a huge blow to the jerks doing a smear campaign against Trayvon Martin and his reputation. I bet some of them forced themselves into denial, saying "Well, it probably isn't really Zimmerman in the video!".

Well, in fairness, if I'd stalked and shot an unarmed teenager, I'd probably lie about the whole thing too. What's left to lose?

I detect you partly jest. It would make sense that he'd lie, but really, this is just terrible. Was his life ever actually in danger? I imagine that Zimmerman pulled the gun out, and Trayvon grabbed hold of his arm and wrestled with Zimmerman, and was calling for help, trying to avoid Zimmerman using that gun on him. That was the altercation. Zimmerman pulled the gun on him with no good reason. That may be how the confrontation went down. After Zimmerman, ten years older, stronger, and about 100 pounds heavier, won the altercation, he shot Trayvon in the chest. Just terrible. Now knowing that Zimmerman didn't get a scratch on him, this is a likely way the scenario played out.

Also, there is this from the anti-Trayvon crowd:




This was flying around facebook. However, the word is that older picture of "Trayvon" where "he" is giving two middle fingers isn't even him. I wouldn't be surprised if that isn't really a photo of him, because that more recent photo of "Zimmerman" might not even really be Zimmerman! Where is his birth mark by his nose and upper lip in the second photo? Plus, the facial hair fills in the middle where his mustache is in the real Zimmerman pic. You see that the man with the short haired mustache in the second pic doesn't have facial hair grow in the very center of his upper lip.

Just great how the anti-Trayvon people not only concoct a photo like this, they make the alledgedly more recent pictures show Trayvon in a very negative manner (gangsta G' giving two middle fingers) and they show "Zimmerman" as some fine gentleman in a nice suit with a big, white smile. It is what to expect from a man with three arrests on his record and allegations that he beat his ex-girlfriend, afterall.

Special Report: Gaddafi's secret missionaries
http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/...82S07T20120329

Quote:
The World Islamic Call Society (WICS) sent staffers out to build mosques and provide humanitarian relief. It gave poor students a free university education, in religion, finance and computer science. Its missionaries traversed Africa preaching a moderate, Sufi-tinged version of Islam as an alternative to the strict Wahhabism that Saudi Arabia was spreading.

The Society won approval in high places. The Vatican counted it among its partners in Christian-Muslim dialogue and both Pope John Paul and Pope Benedict received its secretary general. Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, spiritual head of the world's Anglicans, visited the campus in 2009 to deliver a lecture. The following year, the U.S. State Department noted approvingly how the Society had helped Filipino Christian migrant workers start a church in Libya.

But the Society had a darker side that occasionally flashed into view. In Africa, rumors abounded for years of Society staffers paying off local politicians or supporting insurgent groups. In 2004, an American Muslim leader was convicted of a plot to assassinate the Saudi crown prince, financed in part by the Society. In 2011, Canada stripped the local Society office of its charity status after it found the director had diverted Society money to a radical group that had attempted a coup in Trinidad and Tobago in 1990 and was linked to a plot to bomb New York's Kennedy Airport in 2007.
