Bus sucked into sinkhole and swept away by river in Brazil

Everybody got out in time:

A lucky bus full of people in Brazil narrowly escaped a nasty accident, as their vehicle was swallowed by a sinkhole on Monday (March 23).

The passengers were able to escape the doomed bus before it was fell into a crater and washed away by fast-moving floodwater.

Ted Cruz compares climate change activists to ‘flat-Earthers.’

I’m enjoying the Ted Cruz week of extreme idiocy. At least until Trump and Palin start getting jealous of his media attention and start saying even more outrageous things.

French prosecutor: Co-pilot of doomed flight sought to ‘destroy the plane’


DÜSSELDORF, Germany — A French prosecutor said Thursday that the co-pilot of the doomed Germanwings flight wanted to “destroy the plane,” adding a stunning twist as the investigation shifted to a possible suicide dive that killed all 150 people aboard.

The statement came after reports that the recovered cockpit voice recorder indicated the pilot was locked out of the cockpit before the A320 slammed into the French Alps on Tuesday after an eight-minute descent.

“I see this as deliberate,” the Marseille-based prosecutor, Brice Robin, told reporters.

His account offered a chilling and calculating scenario: the plane descending in a steep, but steady, rate that did not appear to startle most passengers until it was clear the plane was on a collision course with the snow-bound peaks in southern France.

Woman Arrested for Throwing Molotov Cocktail at Anti-Abortion Protesters


A Texas woman was arrested by police and charged with aggravated assault after she threw a Molotov cocktail at a group of people outside a Planned Parenthood facility.

The group was made up of anti-abortion protesters who held a prayer vigil outside the Planned Parenthood building in South Austin. Ruth Allwein said that as she prayed on Monday, she saw someone throw the Molotov cocktail from her car and backed away.

She put out the fire and called the police. They ended up finding and arresting Melanie Toney, who ended up confessing to throwing the Molotov cocktail.

Obamacare Opponent Ted Cruz is Signing Up for Obamacare

This fucking guy:

This is the most astonishing Obamacare-related news story — or anything-related news story I’ve seen in a long, long time. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), perhaps the central opponent of the Affordable Care Act is enrolling in an Obamacare health insurance plan. No, this isn’t a story from The Onion. He’s really doing it.

Evidently his wife is taking a leave of absence from her job at Goldman-Sachs in order to help with Cruz’s campaign. Consequently, the couple will lose their insurance coverage through her job. And today, during a sit-down with CNN’s Dana Bash he admitted that he’s buying insurance through the federal exchange — specifically the previously glitchy Healthcare.gov website.
