Drug Addict Shrieks That Water on Mars is a Liberal Conspiracy

Rush Limbaugh:

NASA announced today the yuuuuge discovery of liquid water on the surface of Mars, but a skeptical Rush Limbaugh wondered if this is just part of a plan to push a liberal climate change agenda.

He said that NASA’s been lying for years about changing temperatures and asked, “What’s to stop them from making up something that happened on Mars that will help advance their left-wing agenda on this planet?”

Limbaugh believes that NASA’s been “corrupted” by the Obama administration and warned listeners “this news that there is flowing water on Mars is somehow going to find its way into a technique to advance the leftist agenda.”

Facebook Photos Help Cops Nab Bank Robbers

If not for facebook it may have taken police hours to identify the guy with facial tattoos.

SEPTEMBER 24–A couple arrested this week for robbing an Ohio bank posted photos to Facebook showing them posing with stacks of cash in the days following the crime, police report.

John Mogan, 28, and Ashley Duboe, 24, are charged with the August 24 robbery of a bank in Ashville, a village 20 miles south of Columbus.

Investigators allege that Mogan walked into the bank and gave a note demanding money to a teller, who then handed over cash. The above surveillance photo shows the hoodie-wearing robber leaving the bank with a stack of currency in his hands.

Mogan is a convicted felon who was just released from prison after serving about five years for robbing a bank in Lancaster, a city 20 miles east of Ashville. A female accomplice was also arrested in connection with Mogan’s July 2010 robbery of a Fairfield National Bank branch.

Mogan began serving a three-year parole term immediately following his July 19 release from an Ohio state lockup. The heavily tattooed Mogan has the phrases “Loyalty’s Thin” and “Betrayal’s Thick” on opposite cheeks.

Texan Attempts to Stop Carjacking with Gun. Shoots Carjacking Victim in the Head.

And THIS is exactly the reason why it would be a nightmare having everybody walking around with a sidearm waiting to get all John Wayne the moment they smell an incident occurring.

Houston police say that an armed man’s attempt to stop a carjacking went terribly wrong on Saturday night when he shot the vehicle’s owner in the head, then fled the scene.

According to KHOU Channel 11 News, the shooting took place around 11:15 p.m. at a Valero gas station in north Houston.

Police officials say that two men jumped the owner of a Chevrolet pickup truck and absconded with his vehicle.

As the men struggled with the car-owner, a passerby produced a gun and fired multiple shots, missing the thieves but striking the victim in the head.

The shooter quickly gathered up his shell casings from the pavement and fled the scene.

The injured man was rushed to a nearby hospital where he is currently in stable condition.
