Here’s some news you’re not likely to see in your morning paper– for Tuesday April 8, 2014

12Here’s a story from Tennessee, it seems the North Carolina budget director could take a good look at what Tennessee is going to help out with the high cost of tuition.  The Gov. of Tennessee has laid out a plan that in all likelihood will pass.  The Tennessee legislature in allowing all high school graduates to go to a two-year community college for free.

13Since you’re reading this post on a computer you may like this article. Have you ever downloaded a trial version or free software, and then found that it contained.  What is called adaware?  Microsoft has laid out a plan that will block all adware that is not easily uninstallable.  This means that to get rid of pesky annoying ads and browser hijacking, you no longer will need to do a system restore.

14Everybody has her own interpretation of Al Sharpton, some people like and some people don’t.  Sharpton even has a connection to the North Carolina Democratic Party—I’m wondering if anyone actually reads down this far and if they do are wondering what that connection might happen to be?  But I digress, it is interesting To read however that Al Sharpton was once an FBI informant, gathering information and putting away Mobsters.  Hmm, aren’t ya just a little curious as to what that Sharpton/NCDP connection might be?

Here’s an article that you will more than likely see around progressive and liberal websites, but in all likelihood, you’re not going to see it on the front page of your local newspaper.  It seems that of all the Fox news, commentary and analysis on weather and climate, only 28% of it turns out to be accurate.  Which in my opinion is about 27% more accurate than their bogus reporting of Obama.

15You remember the Westboro Baptist Church don’t you?  Well here’s a great little article that will warm your heart.  It seems that the Westboro Baptist Church was going to protest outside of an elementary school.  That was still housing children because of a tornado disaster from 2013.  Local residents got wind of the Westboro Baptist Church had intended to protest, so they banded together and hundreds of local citizens chased protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church out of town.  They literally chased the Westboro Baptist Church out of town.  I love this story.

How many people think using social media is not very relevant?  Well, I would beg to differ and apparently so would Chili’s restaurant.  The restaurant chain canceled a fund-raising event that links autism to vaccinations.  Some social media networks got wind of this and began to protest Chili’s restaurant.  If nothing else, this is a great example that  social media not only can create social activism, but in all likelihood, it may be able to sustain a political movement.

16How many of you think lawyers you crazy?  I happen to know a lot of lawyers and I can attest to the fact that some of them are definitely  a couple of bricks shy of a full load.  But in the United Kingdom they are called banisters, and they have to take a law exam just like here in the United States.  Sometimes banisters trainees don’t want to take  the law exam, so they make up stories to get out of it.  This one particular female lawyer made up a story that she was raped nine times, and this put  her boyfriend behind bars on at least one occasion.  For 30 days.  Apparently this lawyer trainee is now going to find out what it’s like to be on the other side of the legal system, she’s been charged with 11 counts of false accusations.  Initially I should just leave it at that, otherwise I will  be called a misogynist for criticizing a female.  Kiss kiss

And our final story… where is Dennis Rodman when you need him.  It seems that the North Korean government did not like a security Minister.  So they sentenced him to be executed–with a flamethrower.  Politicians in the United States have no idea how good they have it.
