Virginia Senate approves guns-in-church bill

quote [ The Virginia Senate has approved legislation that would make it easier to bring a gun to a place of worship.

The GOP-controlled Senate narrowly voted to support the legislation Thursday. The bill would repeal a law that prohibits people from bringing guns and knives to a place of worship during a religious service without a ?good and sufficient? reason. ]

"You know what I?m waiting for? Guns in church. That?s gonna be a lot of fun and it?ll happen, you watch, some nut will go fucking ape-shit in a church and they?ll refer to him as a 'disgruntled worshiper.' " -- George Carlin, 1999

This filmmaker spent months interviewing neo-Nazis and jihadists. Here?s what she learned.

quote [ I tried to understand the core psychological draw of these movements. I found that a sense of belonging or purpose was a major factor. These people join these groups and suddenly they have a sense of meaning in life, a belief that they matter, that their voice matters. It?s as though they were once invisible and now they?re seen. ]

Deeyah Khan is a liberal Muslim woman, so both groups see her as the enemy. I found her story fascinating.

Ukraine cites massive buildup of Russian forces along border

Martial law vote after Ukraine-Russia clash

quote [ The three ships were sailing off the coast of Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in 2014, when they were seized.

Ukraine said it was a Russian "act of aggression". Moscow said the ships had illegally entered its waters.

On Monday, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said he was proposing that parliament back a 30-day martial law - half the length of that recommended by Ukraine's security and defence council a day earlier. ]

Well shit. It would be nice to have an adult in charge of WH right about now. As it stands, the administration will just take Putin's side and then massive genocide will commence in the Ukraine.
