Single, unmarried Mom, Bristol Palin's argument in opposing gay marriage:
"We know that in general kids do better growing up in a mother/father home."
The irony, apparently missed by Bristol, is that Bristol is, of course, an unmarried Mom raising a child without a father in the home, the child being the result of an out of wedlock teen pregnancy. To top it off, Bristol also made sarcastic remarks about the Obama children on her blog. Bristol was clearly raised as a good Republican by Sarah, both believe they can run your life and make rules for how you live, while as Republicans and hypocrites, they are beyond criticism or accountability for their own actions or words.
Former Iraqi military officers and Baathists exploit Jihad, and control ISIS across Iraq and Syria. The shadowy figures send foreign fighters out to die while they run the terrorist organization with utmost secrecy. The blanket exclusion of the Baath from power they were accustomed to by the US and Shiite government, and firing of the Army by order of Paul Bremer and GW Bush, led to the formation of ISIS.
Yesterday Calbuco Volcano erupted for the first time in about 50 years. During the night it sent off a second round of lava and ash. This article was the best one I could find that covers the event with detail, pictures and video. Calbuco is in Southern Chile and is part of the ring of fire. Chile has the largest amount of these volcanoes in this chain. The main worry is that the ash column will collapse and send a pyroclastic flow over the area for several hundred miles that could destroy everything. The volcano was covered with ice and snow before it erupted so there is a watch for flooding of ash and water in the streams.
