Cheap shots: Really bad intel

Reputed Moshiach, via Yeshiva World.
And only one oratorio and that one oratorio is by Mr. Händel:
A baby named “Messiah” must be renamed, according to a judge in Tennessee, because Messiah is a ‘earned’ title in the Judeo-Christian tradition.
 The mother, Jaleesa Martin of Newport, Tenn., is appealing the decision handed down by Child Support Magistrate Lu Ann Ballew, who renamed the 7-month-old child “Martin DeShawn McCullough,” after the parents came to her in a dispute over the child’s last name, according to the Tennesseean. The new name includes both parent’s last names but leaves out Messiah, “which is a title and it’s a title that has only been earned by one person and that one person is Jesus Christ,” Ballew said. (Raw Story)

That's why it's illegal to name a child Queenie, Duke, or Sergeant in Cocke County. They're sensitive about names there. By the way, isn't the jury still out on Rabbi Schneerson? Or is the religious freedom of Lubavitchers in Tennessee not protected?

How conservatives deal with dissent. From Wikipedia.
Scoop: Texas rodeos do not have performers! But they're not proud of it.
“Liberals want to bronco bust dissent. But Texans value speech, even if its speech they don’t agree with,” said Stockman, “From Molly Ivins to Louie Gohmert and every opinion between Texans value free and open political speech.  I’m sure any rodeo in Texas would be proud to have performers.”
The Five Human Races: Ethiopian, American, Caucasian, Mongolian, and Esquimaux. From Chest of Books.

And the race is not always to the swiftest. Rep. Tom McClintock (R-CA) taking a stand against evil multiculturalism:
There’s only one race here, it’s the American race. And the only way you accomplish that is through assimilation. That is what our immigration laws are designed to promote, and that is precisely what illegal immigration undermines. (ThinkProgress)
I don't know if this is just quibbling, but if there's only one race here, why does it have to be promoted?

Annals of Law Enforcement
Police in Arlington, Texas are being criticized for their tactics during a drug raid on a local farm that came up empty while allegedly damaging both the property and the crops.
“They can’t even tell the difference between tomato plants and a marijuana drug cartel,” farm resident Quinn Eaker told KXAS-TV. “That’s just really bad intel.”
Eaker said to KXAS that he and several residents at the “Garden of Eden” sustainability garden were handcuffed at gunpoint by officers during the Aug. 2 raid, which also involved a SWAT team, after an undercover officer and helicopter surveillance allegedly gave authorities probable cause to believe there was marijuana being grown on the premises.

 ...the brown intel that is circulating around us is not specifically too good. Uh, it's suggested that you do stay away from that, course it's your own trip, so be my guest, but, uh, please be advised that there is a warning on that one ok?
