Yesterdays Umpqua Community College Shooter claimed to be a “Conservative Republican” who was fascinated with the Irish Republican Army (a terrorist organization) and hated organized religion. Most of the media and people who hate/fear guns are focused on the first, but ignoring the latter. Why? He allegedly singled out Christians and those who were not or would not admit to being so he shot in the legs.

Now-a-Republican Kim Davis met with the Pope last Thursday. The question is why is the Pope now telling an elected official in the United States who swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of The United States what to do?
Dave opens up the eMail Bag and answers the question about why EAS Alerts “sound so crappy.”
Some have suggested that humans be genetically engineered to resist the effects of climate change. The problem is that playing with genes can lead to some strange and uncomfortable effects. By way of example, Dave takes a look at some of the ideas to warn future generations (1000+ years into the future) about the dangers of radioactive waste, one idea for which is absolutely amazingly entertaining… THE RAY CATS!
