Greeks rightly flock to cyber currency (Bitcoin)

“With bank doors slammed shut, frantic Greeks are turning to online trading platforms to see if the digital money Bitcoin is a better bet than the euro.

The world’s largest Bitcoin exchanges tell CNNMoney they’ve seen a surge of business from Greece.

Surveillance video of a wee-hours ruckus at a Macon Wal-Mart on Sunday shows a teenager race inside flashing gang signs ahead of a mob of four dozen or so people who burst in and smashed merchandise.The commotion, which caused an estimated $2,000 in damage, appears to have been planned.Some in the crowd also snatched a man, apparently a shopper at the Zebulon Road store, from a motorized shopping cart and dragged him to the floor, Bibb County sheriff’s officials said Monday.The vandals, said to number between 40 and 50, sprinted down the store’s main aisle about 1:50 a.m. Sunday, “destroying merchandise displays and items,” a sheriff’s deputy’s report of the incident noted.Floors in parts of the store were “coated with broken merchandise,” the report added. “The length of the store from front to rear was lined with items which had been shattered, destroyed, turned over and thrown about.”When sheriff’s deputies got there, the crowd “began to flee into many different vehicles and leave the scene,” the report said.

The Real Reason for Flag Hysteria

Screen Shot 2015 06 29 at 8 16 16 PM

“Every couple of years the totalitarian socialist Left in America (a.k.a., the Democratic Party and all of its appendages) pretends to be indignant about the existence of the Confederate flag somewhere. The lapdog cultural Marxist media fall in line, treating the siting of the flag in the same way they would treat the siting of an Ebola victim in a large crowd. Americans are reminded once again by the New York/New England/Ivy League-educated presstitute class that they should hate Southerners and all things Southern. As Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart recently whined in faux horror, Southerners ‘waged war against the United States’ government! Waaaaaaaaah!

The anti-Confederate flag hysteria is only one small part of the Left’s general strategy, however. It is part of their overriding strategy of diverting the public’s attention away from all the grotesque failures of leftist interventionism, from the welfare state to the government takeover of education to the war on drugs and beyond. The neocons who run the Republican Party are usually complicit in all of this.

The welfare state has decimated the black family and is hard at work destroying the white family as well by eliminating the stigma against a man’s abandoning his wife and children with welfare checks (See Charles Murray, Losing Ground). What does the Confederate flag have to do with this? The welfare state has destroyed the work ethic of millions of Americans. What does the Confederate flag have to do with this? The Fed caused the biggest depression since the Great Depression with its latest boom-and-bust-cycle act. What does the Confederate flag have to do with this?”

Student suspended for disarming gunman

“‘If they wouldn’t’ve did what they had to do on that bus,’ the teen’s mother said, ‘I think there would have been a lot of fatalities.’

The mother agreed to talk with us in disguise. She can’t understand why her son, who disarmed the gunman, was suspended.

‘Those kids had to fight for their lives,’ she said. ‘All the kids that was involved in this they should have a pat on their backs because they did the right thing to save someone from burying their child.’

According to the mother, the school suspended her son because he refused to cooperate in the investigation. She says he was scared.”

Uber and Domino’s Drivers Held at Gun-Point, but One Driver Had a Secret Weapon

 “An Uber driver in Queens, New York, and a pizza delivery guy in Hollywood, Florida, were both held at gunpoint last week. What happened next to each driver could not have been more different.

The NY Daily News reports that just one week after Uber issued a strict anti-firearm policy for their employees and customers, a New York Uber driver was robbed. Staring down the barrel of a rifle, he handed over all of his money, and the gunman fled the scene.

The day before, Slayde Henry, a Domino’s delivery driver in Hollywood, Florida, was also held at gunpoint. However, what the would-be robbers didn’t know is that Henry was carrying a concealed handgun.”

Detroit EMT Allegedly Refused to Help Dying Baby

A Detroit EMT has lost her job; a Detroit mother has lost something infinitely more precious. Detroit Police Commissioner Edsel Jenkins on Wednesday announced that Ann Marie Thomas was fired after allegedly refusing to respond to a call made by a mother whose 8-month-old girl had stopped breathing. The child, born premature and on an oxygen machine, was being given CPR by the mother. WDIV has the alleged timeline: It reports that Thomas was 0.9 miles from the home when she was ordered there on May 30; under normal driving conditions that would have been a two-minute drive, but Thomas allegedly took six minutes to get there and reported to dispatchers that she was parked “around the corner from the scene.” WDIV reports she allegedly wanted to wait for another crew to arrive.
