Caution Entering Bird Dropping Area

Signs warning of bird droppings were posted along a stretch in downtown Orlando this week after cars, benches, sidewalks, plants and even people are hit and covered by the white bird waste.
The problem began when city workers removed cypress trees on "bird island" at Lake Eola in Orlando.
The trees had to be removed because the bird
droppings were polluting the water, according to the report.
Now, the birds have moved into the city and are covering anything and anyone between Lake Eola and Central Avenue with droppings.
"You have to brace yourself for the smell," downtown resident James Taylor said. "It is a really bad stench. It is disgusting, absolutely disgusting. It smells amost as bad as those hippie war protesters."
"I was walking the other day and got pooed on walking under these trees," Orlando resident Lisa Valentine said. "Somebody told me it was good luck."
"The white film cakes the light posts along Lake Eloa," Local 6 reporter Todd Jurkowski said. "It is on the sidewalks and on the plants."
Officials said Orlando city workers pressure wash a stretch of the sidewalk at least twice a week.
Signs with the warning, "Caution -- Entering Bird Dropping Area" were posted Tuesday.
"Don't sit on the benches, unless you are very brave," resident Jeff Miller said.
Some people don't let the bird droppings bother them and continue to eat lunch around the droppings.
"Based on what I saw on that car, I got to believe there is no (expletive) left in them," resident Alex Hartley said.

Federal law prohibits the bird nests in Orlando from being disturbed.

This is much more of a threat than the bird flue !
The birds have declared a Jihad against us !
Death to the birds and their nests !

Global Warming Plumets Temperatures Across The Country

A storm system barreled across the Plains states on the last day of winter, dumping more than a foot of snow that stalled highway travelers Monday in South Dakota and Nebraska and causing flooding in Texas.

Hundreds of schools were closed Monday in Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado and South Dakota, and at least two deaths were blamed on the storm. Six-foot snowdrifts were reported in western South Dakota.

What If They Held A Protest And No One Showed Up ?

On the third anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq, the US capital's historic protest venues were surprisingly serene on Sunday. Outside the White House tourists had their pictures taken next to a cardboard cut-out of the president, families enjoyed the sun on the Mall and several bored-looking policemen stood guard outside the vice-president's DC home. Not a placard in sight or a chant to be heard.

Anti-war protesters lament apathy
But no one cares what the smelly hippies lament anyway.

We can all look forward to a media barrage of garbage this week explaining to the stupid American public that the war is a failure, Iraq is a quagmire and civil war in Iraq is already underway. They started up that nonsense on the Sunday morning talk circuit. The Demoncrats are foaming at the mouth eager to get their message out. I think they should get their message out. Nothing turns off voters more the pessimism.

Dutch Consider Burqa Ban

If the Netherlands becomes the first European country to ban the burqa and other Muslim face veils this month, Hope says she'll resort to wearing a surgical mask to dress in accordance with her religious beliefs.

Someone should tell Hope there is nothing in the Koran requiring females to cover their faces.
"I'll wear one of those things they wore during the SARS epidemic if I have to," said the Dutch-born Muslim, one of about 50 women in the Netherlands who wear the head-to-toe burqa or the niqab, a face veil that conceals everything but the eyes.
Last December, parliament voted to forbid women from wearing the burqa or any Muslim face coverings in public, justifying the move in part as a security measure.

The burqa is very convenient for terrorists that wish to wear a disguise but want the disguise to be unquestioned.
"This is an enormous victory for traditional Dutch decency," said Geert Wilders, the populist member of parliament who first proposed the burqa ban, after hearing parliament had backed it.

"The burqa is hostile to women, and medieval. For a woman to walk around on the streets completely covered is an insult to everyone who believes in equal rights."

The burqa is also hostile towards western culture. The Muslims moved to the Netherlands but insist the Netherlands succumb to the Muslim culture. Good for the Netherlands for saying it doesn't work that way.

South Dakota Bans Most Abortions

Gov. Mike Rounds signed legislation Monday that would ban most abortions in South Dakota, a law he acknowledged would be tied up in court for years while the state challenges the 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

The bill would make it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion unless the procedure was necessary to save the woman's life. It would make no exception for cases of rape or incest.

The governor issued a written statement saying he expected a lengthy legal battle over the law, which, he said, would not take effect unless the U.S. Supreme Court upheld it.

"In the history of the world, the true test of a civilization is how well people treat the most vulnerable and most helpless in their society. The sponsors and supporters of this bill believe that abortion is wrong because unborn children are the most vulnerable and most helpless persons in our society. I agree with them," Rounds said in the statement.

Under the new law, doctors could get up to five years in prison for performing an illegal abortion.

Rounds noted that it was written to make sure existing restrictions would still be enforced during the legal battle. Current state law sets increasingly stringent restrictions on abortions as pregnancy progresses; after the 24th week, the procedure is allowed only to protect the woman's health and safety.

Five years for cold-blooded murder seems pretty light, but it's better than the Government sanctioned free-for-all slaughter we have now. Odd though that there doesn't seem to be any punishment for the "mother" that seeks out the murder of her own child... they're just punishing the "doctor".

Police To Protect Vandalized Home Of Fallen Soldier

Police posted an around-the-clock security watch at the home of an Indiana soldier killed last week in Iraq after it was vandalized and his family received disturbing phone calls.
The home of Sgt. Rickey Jones was egged Saturday, three days after Jones’ family learned the 21-year-old and three other soldiers had been killed by a roadside bomb north of Baghdad. His family also received phone calls in which the caller said: “I’m glad your son is dead.”

Scum. Pure scum.
Last Wednesday Missouri Governor Matt Blunt signed legislation banning protests at funerals for service members.
State Sen. Charlie Shields, of St. Joseph, sponsored the Spc. Edward Lee Myers' bill after protesters disrupted his funeral in December. Myers was killed in Iraq.
"The despicable protest at the funeral of Spc. Edward Myers clarified the need for this legislation. This law is named for Spc. Myers," Blunt said.
The law prohibits protests for one hour before and one hour after funerals.

Indiana should do the same. There is no reason to allow this kind of behavior.
