WVU Student Government says, ‘save a couch,’ don’t burn one

WVU student leaders are taking a light-hearted, but serious stand around the senseless couch burnings that some students have been known to engage in. In this tongue-in-cheek video that is being pushed out to students — by students — WVU’s Student Government Association is putting it bluntly: “Save a couch,” don’t burn one.” Couches are meant for sitting, sleeping and studying on – even for finding spare change — but not for burning. So, just don’t do it. Celebrate legally and responsibly after any big Mountaineer victory — or similarly, act with class in defeat.

Pat Robertson says to take the extremism down a notch to Republican candidates???

Question by : Pat Robertson says to take the extremism down a notch to Republican candidates???
Many of Robertson’s views mirror those of fellow evangelical pastor/activist Jerry Falwell, who made frequent appearances on The 700 Club. He agreed with Falwell when Falwell stated that the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were caused by “pagans, abortionists, feminists, gays, lesbians, the American Civil Liberties Union and the People For the American Way.”

He has described feminism as a “socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians.

On the June 8, 1998 edition of his show, Robertson denounced Orlando, Florida and Disney World for allowing a privately sponsored “Gay Days” weekend. Robertson stated that the acceptance of homosexuality could result in hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, terrorist bombings and “possibly a meteor.”

The resulting outcry prompted Robertson to return to the topic on June 24, where he quoted the Book of Revelation to support his claims. The first hurricane of the 1998 Atlantic hurricane season Hurricane Bonnie, actually turned away from Florida and instead damaged the rest of the east coast.

The area hardest hit by the hurricane was the Hampton Roads region, which includes Virginia Beach, where the Robertson’s The 700 Club originates. While other hurricanes did hit Florida, none of them hit Disney World.

On his November 10, 2005 broadcast of The 700 Club, Robertson told citizens of Dover, Pennsylvania that they had rejected God by voting out of office all seven members of the school board who support intelligent design.

“I’d like to say to the good citizens of Dover: if there is a disaster in your area, don’t turn to God, you just rejected Him from your city”, Robertson said on his broadcast.

“And don’t wonder why he hasn’t helped you when problems begin, if they begin. I’m not saying they will, but if they do, just remember, you just voted God out of your city. And if that’s the case, don’t ask for His help because He might not be there.”

On the January 13, 2010 broadcast of The 700 Club, Robertson blamed the Haitians for making a deal with the Devil during their 1791 slave rebellion, resulting in the Haiti earthquake of January 12, 2010 and other misfortunes.

Non-Christians, as “termites”-Robertson has stated, “It is interesting, that termites don’t build things, and the great builders of our nation almost to a man have been Christians, because Christians have the desire to build something. He is motivated by love of man and God, so he builds. The people who have come into [our] institutions [today] are primarily termites. They are into destroying institutions that have been built by Christians, whether it is universities, governments, our own traditions, that we have…. The termites are in charge now, and that is not the way it ought to be, and the time has arrived for a godly fumigation.

In 1999 Robertson said Scotland was “a dark land” overrun by homosexuals. This caused the Bank of Scotland to drop plans for a business operation with him. Many Scottish customers were unhappy that their bank would do business with him.

In a 2001 interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, he said that the Chinese were “doing what they have to do,” regarding China’s one-child policy, sometimes enforced with compulsory abortions, though he said that he did not personally agree with the practice. His comments drew criticism from both sides of the political spectrum.

On the August 22, 2005 broadcast of The 700 Club, Robertson said of Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez-“I don’t know about this doctrine of assassination, but if he thinks we’re trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It’s a whole lot cheaper than starting a war, and I don’t think any oil shipments will stop.”

On his The 700 Club television program, Pat Robertson has sharply criticized elements of the United States government and “special interest” groups that don’t share his views. In interviews with the author of a book critical of the United States Department of State, Robertson made suggestions that the explosion of a nuclear weapon at State Department Headquarters would be good for the country, and repeated those comments on the air. “What we need is for somebody to place a small nuke at Foggy Bottom, “Robertson said during his television program, referring to the location of the State Department headquarters.

Carolyn says "Hi", while I check out the roof for the first time since it was modified during the mid-2000’s building of our addition. Due to the terrain, there are parts of my roof you can only see on Google Earth — unless you go up there. After sliding down the roof uncontrollably on more than one occasion, I stopped going up there as much a few years ago.

To make the most of the expedition, I took the camera and also bought roofing cement. The stuff smells horrible — like hot asphalt — and you can smell it from 50 feet away for awhile afterward. It can only be washed off of your skin with paint thinner (which says not to put on your skin). You can see where I patched 2 nails to the left of the ladder, at the edge of the roof. I basically used half the bucket on every exposed nail head, every crack, and on all the edges of the chimney flashing (which really did flood once when our builder screwed up the roof — see video of the 20060625 indoor rain at www.youtube.com/watch?v=ybwRtTmOXtU ). Originally I was going to nail in a roofing safety harness bracket — a 0 fall harness + bracket I bought online, so as to not fall off my roof and kill myself — but my stud sensor was unable to sense the joists through my shingles, so I had to abort that project. But that’s what the roofing cement was originally for — keeping the holes I was going to put in my shingles from leaking into roof. Instead I just used it for general roof upkeep.

So anyway, after all that, Progressive drops us for the condition of our roof ("curling shingles"). Of course, we survived the hurricane JUST FINE with zero water in our house, proving that Progressive Insurance are ASSHOLES. These shingles are not in perfect condition, but the roof sure as hell does not need to be re-done if it is functioning just fine.

Also since then, additional gutter guards have been deployed, and they are uniformly and 100% covering the front gutters at least. Had to cut some into custom-sized pieces to get full coverage.

Note the condition of the shingles. Progressive insurance (Homesite insurance) dropped our insurance giving us a list of reasons. We fixed the items on that list. They then dropped us a 2nd time for new reasons not included in the first list, including "curling shingles" on my roof. The shingles certainly aren’t perfect, but do these look like something that’s going to fly off my roof and cost an insurance company a lot of money? Of course, we survived Hurricane Irene AND the post-Irene flood storms JUST FINE … With zero water in our house. Progressive did not even cite our roof the first time they dropped us. Quite simply, Progressive Insurance/Homesite insurance are ASSHOLES. The roof sure as hell does not need to be re-done if it is functioning just fine. Plus, I just patched it with roof cement to strengthen it up even more! Be smart. Stay away from Progressive. Their low prices aren’t worth it. The State Corporation Commission has been notified, but since Virginia is a Republican state, our regulatory agencies barely have any teeth.

The tree touching the roof on the right is an example of tree maintenance I did myself with the pole saw.

You can see some of the Home Depot solar lights that we put on the pathway (once you get out of the range of the street light).

Leaves still everywhere from our tree removal.

Also since then, additional gutter guards have been deployed, and they are uniformly and 100% covering the front gutters at least. Had to cut some into custom-sized pieces to get full coverage.

Virginia Foxx Says Health Insurance Reform is More Dangerous than any Terrorist in any Country

Representative Virginia Foxx has a long record making outrageous comments on the floor of the US House. She continued that pattern recently by saying health insurance reform posed a greater danger to Americans than any terrorist living in any country. This video is the local news coverage on WXII-TV in Winston-Salem of Foxx’s absurd and shameful statement.

HOT SPOT: The Name Says It All

So apparently (this part of?) West Virginia has no bars. However, it does have tons of these so-called "cafes" — such as the above-pictured "Hot Spot" and the (not pictured) "Must Be 21 To Enter, LLC". None of them have windows and all of them have parking lots where you can make a quick and easy getaway should the occasion arise.

This makes me think of Mark’s tale of the mirror-windowed "cafes" in Argentina.

Also — when we asked (Amy’s) Uncle Roy what was up with these "cafes" he replied: "I don’t know, Diane won’t go in one with me."
