History Channel Reveals the Secret Alien Nazi Story Behind Washington At Gettysburgh

Posted at 6:35 pm on July 3, 2017 by streiff

<..snip..>



On the one hand if is baffling how George Washington was associated with Gettysburg. Other than this being a military image and we all know that one war is pretty much like another it has nothing to do with Gettysburg. But, on the other hand, it is certainly no more egregious than a lot of the programming that channel runs.

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don’t let this happen to you.

Yes its clickbait but damn its worth it.

Behind the scenes with Ann Arbor's deer sterilization crew on a Friday night

http://www.mlive.com/news/ann-arbor/index.ssf/2017/07/ann_arbor_approves_481k_to_con.html

ANN ARBOR, MI - After years of heated debate, public outcry, protests and lawsuits over Ann Arbor's deer management program, the City Council quietly voted this week to continue it.

The council voted unanimously and without discussion Monday night, July 3, to approve a two-year contract with White Buffalo Inc. for continuation of surgical sterilization and sharpshooting services at a cost of up to $170,000 per year, or $340,000 over two years.

No members of the public showed up to speak for or against the proposal.

White Buffalo is the same contractor that was hired to carry out the city's second-annual deer cull and first-ever sterilization program this past winter. The Connecticut-based nonprofit wildlife control company now will continue its work in Ann Arbor for another two years.

I heard that when Chris Christie took his family to the state beach he closed during the New Jersey
budget standoff over the holiday weekend, he was helicoptered to the area---I bet they called the
flight Operation Dumbo Drop.

Airport near Mackinac Island reminds travelers to 'remove fudge from bags'

http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2017/07/airport_notice_near_mackinac_i.html

SAULT STE. MARIE, MI - This has to be one of those "only in Michigan" moments.

It comes courtesy of Brighton author Charlene Kull, who captured this photo of a sign at Chippewa County International Airport near Sault Ste. Marie just before 7 p.m. on July 5.

As you can see, mixed among warning signs about removing items from your pockets and unpacking your leftover fireworks is a notice for passengers to remove fudge from their bags.




And after all that time I spent lovingly packing it too.  8888crybaby

If you're going to pack fudge, you have to be ready to pull it out when you are told to.

This isn't news...it's "olds"...  (and I find it interesting that neither of them was arguing for the pronunciation that's currently popular!)

The strange tale of the man who was shot point-blank for mispronouncing 'Newfoundland' — in the Old West
Mill workers in the frontier town of Larkspur, Colo., saw two men enter a cabin in search of a dictionary. Seconds later, they heard a gunshot

Mill workers in the frontier town of Larkspur, Colo., saw two men enter a cabin in search of a dictionary. Seconds later, they heard a gunshot.

The Webster’s had not even been thumbed through when mill worker William Atcheson, 23, threw a punch. Teamster John P. Davis recovered and, “true to his Texan breeding and education,” drew a revolver and fired point-blank into his assailant’s abdomen.

The year was 1876 and Davis and Atcheson had just drawn first blood in a dispute that has divided Newfoundlanders ever since.

“One wanted to put the accent on ‘found,’ and the other on ‘land,’ ” said the Rocky Mountain News, which reported on the unusual brawl in its March 29, 1876 edition.

While the modern “noo-fn-land” is the undisputed leader in the battle over the correct pronunciation of the word Newfoundland, it arose out of a pitched struggle of rival inflections.

“It’s a generational thing, but just exactly what the dividing line is I don’t know, but if you’re born after 1970, chances are you primarily put the stress on the first syllable,” says Philip Hiscock, a folklorist at Memorial University and an expert on the Newfoundland dialect.

“And if you’re born before 1950, your primary pronunciation would be to stress the last syllable.”

‘Passed gas’ forces passengers from plane at Raleigh-Durham airport, spokesperson says
RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) -

A person who “passed gas” on an American Airlines plane on Sunday afternoon forced all passengers off the jet, officials said.

The incident happened when passengers on the flight became ill with nausea and headaches, according to a spokesperson with Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

The flight, which was not identified by RDU officials, landed at the airport around 4 p.m. when the incident was reported.

All the passengers were taken off the plane and after the incident was investigated it was determined that a passenger “passed gas,” the official said.

Police: Pennsylvania Driver Taking ‘Selfie’ Before Crashing
July 17, 2017 11:02 AM
KDKA


BIGLERVILLE, Pa. (AP) – State police say a Pennsylvania driver crashed after he became distracted by taking a selfie.

Troopers from the Gettysburg barracks say the man was seen using a cellphone behind the wheel when he crashed after 8 p.m. Saturday night in Franklin Township. That’s in Adams County, about 35 miles southwest of Harrisburg.

Police didn’t immediately say whether the driver will be cited or charged in the crash. They say he was taken to York Hospital for moderate injuries and was wearing a seat belt when he crashed.

The car crossed the road, onto a grassy area, then went airborne before landing on a concrete slab and knocking over an Animal Wellness Clinic sign. Police say the car’s engine block and front wheels came off from the impact.
