About Me

If an H-1b has an American accent, they are probably not an H-1b. It's race, not citizenship. Americans are more diverse than you think. Millions of US citizens don't look the way you might expect. This fact is very important and will help us win elections.

U.S.-led airstrikes on ISIS in Syria: Who's in, who's not

Source: CNN

(CNN) -- The campaign of airstrikes against ISIS in Syria has pitted several Arab countries into action alongside the United States.

Analysts say the involvement of leading Sunni Muslim nations in a fight against the Sunni extremism of ISIS is crucial.

"I think that's very important going forward as it does show that we've got some regional buy-in, it shows that there are Arab countries willing to put their reputations on the line," said retired Lt. Col. Rick Francona, an Air Force veteran intelligence officer and CNN military analyst.

But there are also some U.S. allies and regional powers that are conspicuous by their absence from the new phase of the conflict with ISIS.

Good that some Middle Eastern nations are involved in the air strikes. What's the deal with Turkey? Maybe we should support an independent Kurdistan and tell Turkey to go F off.

Shy Boys IRL, the Love Shy documentary

Around 10:10 in this video there is some raw meat for feminists, but the whole video is face palm worthy. I hope the woman who made this documentary is safe.

Slender Man inspires teen to torch home with mom and brother inside


Sender Man has inspired another act of teenage violence as this time police say the fictional character led a 14-year-old girl to set fire to her Florida family home with her mother and sibling inside.

The suspected arsonist was arrested early Thursday after allegedly soaking a towel and a bed sheet with bleach and rum then lighting it on fire in the garage of the Port Richey, Florida home. Inside the home sleeping were her mother and her 9-year-old brother.

Fortunately the home featured working smoke detectors and the teens mother and brother were able to escape the home before it was completely engulfed in flames around 1:45 a.m.

After setting the fire the teen went to a nearby park and fell asleep in the restroom, where police eventually found her and made the arrest.

Florida girl, of course. Is Florida girl related to Florida man maybe?
