You couldn’t make this up if you tried…

There are some stories that just make you facepalm.

This is one of them.

Isn’t Christmas a celebration of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior?

This Nebraskan principal apparently doesn’t know that or doesn’t care.

In short, it’s okay to be any religion you want – except Christian.

This is wild…

From New York Post:

An elementary school principal in Nebraska was placed on leave after telling teachers to avoid decorating their classrooms with Christmas-themed ornaments so as not to offend those who don’t celebrate the holiday.

[…]

Decorations that included Santa, Christmas trees, reindeer, green and red items and even candy canes, however, were not acceptable for the elementary school.

The candy canes, according to KETV, were prohibited because Sinclair deemed them to have religious significance. “Historically, the shape is a ‘J’ for Jesus. The red is for the blood of Christ, and the white is a symbol of his resurrection,” she reportedly wrote. “This would also include different colored candy canes.”

The Detroit school board is considering renaming Benjamin Carson High School because it is “offensive.”

The school was named for current HUD Secretary Ben Carson, renowned neurosurgeon.

In other words, it’s offensive to some to be a black man and hold conservative views.

That’s the bottom line.

From Daily Wire:

The board will seek comment over the next several months on whether to change Carson High, which was named for Dr. Ben Carson before he became active in politics, and well before he became an ally of President Donald Trump, something the Detroit School Board apparently doesn’t appreciate.

[…]

“Lemmons cited the neurosurgeon’s name being added when the district was under an emergency financial manager, saying some residents objected to Carson representing the city,” they added, quoting Lemmons as noting that “Residents ‘don’t support the (Trump) administration.'”

Talk about a slap in the face.

And why do this?

Because Carson works in the Trump administration?

What about the fact that Carson became uber-successful and ran for president? Does that count for nothing?

What happens when people find the Barack Obama High School name offensive?

Will it, too, be renamed?

Ridiculous.

Obama was photographed with noted anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan sometime before the 2008 presidential election.

The picture was kept hidden until recently.

Farrakhan recently compared Jews to termites in a tweet but was hardly given a slap on the wrist by Twitter, the Democrat Party, or the mainstream media.

While in Iran, Louis led a chant calling for “Death to America” and Israel.

From Daily Wire:

A video published by Iranian state television shows Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan leading an Iranian audience in the infamous “Death to Israel” and “Death to America” chants so often heard at political rallies in the country.

Obama was always credited as a good orator.

He always appeared calm and cool under pressure, even when appearing to lie through his teeth – as is the case with most politicians at any given time.

However, a body language expert has analyzed Obama and results are stunning.

In short, Obama is coming off as desperate.

“This is not the same Obama I’m seeing. His head goes down a lot more in that downward position. It’s like a defeatist position. He’s no longer that confident, head held high, arrogant mentality… This is desperation.”

CDC Readies Cruises, Complete with Human Guinea Pigs

Fingers crossed!

Published

As the world prepares for its grand reopening, there are a number of high value industries that are eagerly awaiting permission from medical authorities to resume operations. First and foremost, there are the service industries:  Places like restaurants, bars, music venues, and sports arenas whose entire livelihood depends on whether or not people are being allowed to gather in public.  While many of these venues are now beginning to ramp up their capacity, there are issues bringing some of these workers back into the fold thanks to the enhanced unemployment benefits provided by the federal government. And then there’s the tourism industry, whose regulatory structure is far more susceptible to interference by government agencies. Now, after over a year of stagnation, it appears as though at least one facet of this wide-ranging corporate amalgam will be given a chance to sail on. Cruise lines can soon begin trial voyages in U.S. waters with volunteer passengers helping test whether the ships can sail safely during a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention gave ship operators final technical guidelines Wednesday for the trial runs. The CDC action is a step toward resuming cruises in U.S. waters, possibly by July, for the first time since March 2020. A spokeswoman for the cruise industry’s trade group said the group was reviewing the CDC instructions. So, how will this work? Each practice cruise — they’ll run two to seven days — must have enough passengers to meet at least 10% of the ship’s capacity. Volunteers must be 18 or older and either fully vaccinated or free of medical conditions that would put them at high risk for severe COVID-19. The ship operator must tell passengers that they are simulating untested safety measures “and that sailing during a pandemic is an inherently risky activity,” the…

Strange New Correlation Discovered Between COVID and Bald Men

This strain of coronavirus just keeps getting weirder.

Published

on

From the very onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the medical community appeared stumped.  Sure, this was a novel virus and, as such, came complete with a number of strange and unknown consequences. There were your “long-haulers”; folks who seemed to continually have issues recovering from the illness.  Others lost their senses of taste and smell, sometimes for months on end.  There were even reports of so-called “COVID toes” – an ailment that affected the coloration of the skin on toes and fingers of a small percentage of patients. Now, in another odd correlation within the coronavirus spectrum, it appears that men who’d gone bald are at particular risk for certain side effects of COVID-19. New research suggests they spend up to twice as long in hospital with Covid than those who still have a full head of hair. Science seems to have at least some idea of why this is. They are also admitted to intensive care in higher numbers. Scientists say men’s Covid vulnerability largely comes down to male sex hormones called androgens. Men who are genetically more sensitive to androgens appear to be more likely to suffer severe Covid. They are also more likely to have hair loss, called androgenetic alopecia, which affects around half of men over the age of 50. The science seemed to back this up. A team of US doctors measured men’s sensitivity to androgens by counting a chemical called CAG. High levels indicate that a man is more likely to have hair loss. Of 65 men hospitalised with the infection, those with high CAG levels had worse Covid outcomes in the 60 days following their hospitlisation. They spent 47 days in hospital, on average, and 70.6 per cent were admitted to ICU. For comparison, those with low CAG levels spent an average of 25 days…
