They’re proud of their campaign to destroy the religious and cultural history of the Iraqi people, saying they draw their inspiration from early Islamic history and their strict interpretation of Islamic law.
Previous attacks in recent weeks include the bulldozing of the 2,000-year-old city of Hatra and the Nimrud archaeological site near Mosul and destruction of cultural artefacts and antiquities in a Mosul museum and at the Nergal Gate to ancient Nineveh.
They also destroyed a 19th century Ottoman-era mosque in the central Mosul because it belonged to the wrong kind of Muslims.
As Obama’s Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton routinely used her personal email account for State Department business. She says the 30,000 emails she deleted were personal and had nothing whatsoever to do with … say … Benghazi.
Hillary Clinton: I didn’t see any reason to keep private emails
White House Squirms Trying to Defend Hillary Clinton’s Deletion of Thousand of Emails
From my Fox News Update email: “How did Hillary Clinton know that the tens of thousands of emails from her time in office she ordered destroyed were personal? Did she or even her staff scroll through her sent items scanning emails about “yoga routines” or “family vacations” before deleting them? Nope. No one looked at them. The Clinton campaign said those emails that did not crop up in a keyword search performed by her team were automatically deleted. No eyes. No one to be subpoenaed. Just highlight all and press delete. That method seems better for missing emails than to finding them. And it would sound reckless and haphazard coming from another politician. In this case, though it sounds like a woman covering her tracks in preparation for a long and bloody legal fight over subpoenas to come.”

Thank you all. First,for your continued prayers for my grandson. I know in my heart he’ll beat this cancer thing. I just know it.
Second,thank you for sharing some of your childhood memories. Being an exhibitor, be it as an arts and crafts fair, flea market, antique show, or toy show takes an awful lot of work. You need to make/find merchandise to sell, tag it, pack it, transport, set tables up, stay in your selling space all day and re-pack everything that didn’t sell and haul it home. Sometimes you make a profit,sometimes you don’t. What with the popularity of the internet people are finding other means to buy what they’re looking for. The reason I got into selling toys is that it was something fun (most of the time),I met a lot of dealers with much knowledge to impart that you would never get from a book,and mostly seeing the smiles on peoples’ faces when they see something that once brought them great joy during an innocent and carefree youth. I always maintained,if you can’t have fun selling toys,why are you doing it? I would hear lots of stories like those you posted yesterday about a favorite doll,truck or game. Therein lies the value in them. It’s a happy part of our past and we need to hang on to it in today’s world. If you don’t mind,I’d like to do a post from time to time about these wonderful things and maybe give you some information you didn’t have before. I really enjoy it because I never completely grew up at heart.
ON WITH THE NASTINESS!!!!!

CAN I GET AN AMEN?
OH,HOW I’VE MISSED THIS BULBOUS-NOSED JERKOFF (NOT)
