Oh that’s right, guns don’t kill people, people kill people.

An 8-year-old boy died after accidentally shooting himself in the head
while firing an Uzi submachine gun under adult supervision at a gun
fair.

The boy lost control of the weapon while firing it Sunday at the
Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo at the Westfield Sportsman’s Club,

Mars Attacks!

So what happened to all the aliens that were supposed to arrive yesterday?

WORRIED bookmakers have stopped taking bets on aliens showing up on Earth.

It follows a flurry of bets amid internet buzz that a massive intergalactic spaceship will appear tomorrow [i.e. Tuesday].

Videos and messages on YouTube, blogs and UFO websites are buzzing with predictions that a vessel from the alien Federation Of Light will be visible in our skies for three days.

Proof that nutcases are not confined to the United States. Watch Blossom Goodchild describe her vision that foretold of the alien visitation that was supposed to occur over our Southern skies October 14th:

Be Careful What You Pray For

Focus on the Family’s James Dobson’s prayers it seems were answered, just a few days later.

Back in late August his group released a video in which they prayed for rain on August 28th just in time to disrupt Barack Obama’s acceptance speech in Denver. Of course the weather on the 28th was perfect and Obama’s speech went off pretty much without a hitch but on September 1st, the start of the GOP convention, the same can’t be said.

Hurricane Gustav is slamming into the gulf coast as I write this, the Republican’s are having to re-arrange their convention, canceling all but the necessities today with tomorrow’s festivities still up in the air and George Bush has had to canceled his speech. Is God trying to tell Dobson something?

RightWingNuttia

Just a couple of tidbits from the right-wingnut front. First South Dakota’s certified abstinence wingnut Leslie Unruh for some reason continues far beyond her 15 minutes of fame with a less than flattering article on More.com. Unruh is again gearing up her Abstinence Clearing House army for the latest anti-choice legislation that has made it onto our ballot this November. If you are unfamiliar with Unruh’s particular brand of wingnuttia, please feel to read the More article but keep a barf bag handy.

Continuing with the local wingnut news, right next door in Minnesota, they are having to deal with the own fanatic in the person of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann. For those unfamiliar with the GOP Rep, her resume includes such oldies but goodies as claiming that their is no widlife in the Artic National Refuge and that the Democrats are purposefully allowing gas prices to rise so that they can force folks to move into the inner cities.

Her latest zinger might be the best of all. Bachmann is now claiming that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other environmentalists attempts to save the planet are an exercise in futility becauseWe all know that someone did that over 2,000 years ago, they saved the planet — we didn’t need Nancy Pelosi to do that.” Yes folks she is for real…

And finally no news on RightWingNuttia would be complete without some news from James Dobson and his Focus on the Family.

Over the weekend they released a video that urged their supporters to pray for rain on August 28th so that Barack Obama’s outdoor extravaganza at the Democratic National Convention would be disrupted. Once they were called out on it by local Colorado reporters and nationally by Keith Olbermann, they pulled the video but someone was able to get a copy on YouTube before that happened.

Is it hyperbole as the clip’s producer contends? Watch and decide for yourself.
