Umm… soo… this is embarrassing. There are great things about Texas… this is not one of them.
(CNN) — An elected county judge in Texas is warning that the nation could descend into civil war if President Barack Obama is re-elected, and is calling for a trained, well-equipped force to battle the United Nations troops he says Obama would bring in.
Saying that as the county’s emergency management coordinator he has to “think about the very worst thing that can happen and prepare for that and hope and pray for the best,” Head told radio host Jeff Klotzman that he believes “in this political climate and financial climate, what is the very worst thing that could happen right now? Obama gets back in the White House. No. God forbid.”
Referring to unexplained “executive orders” and other documents that Obama and “his minions have filed,” Head said, “regardless of whether the Republicans take over the Senate, which I hope they do, he is going to make the United States Congress and he’s going to make the Constitution irrelevant. He’s got his czars in place that don’t answer to anybody.”
Obama, Head said, will “try to give the sovereignty of the United States away to the United Nations. What do you think the public’s going to do when that happens? We are talking civil unrest, civil disobedience, possibly, possibly civil war … I’m not talking just talking riots here and there. I’m talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms, get rid of the dictator. OK, what do you think he is going to do when that happens? He is going to call in the U.N. troops, personnel carriers, tanks and whatever.”
Head vowed to personally stand “in front of their personnel carriers and say, ‘You’re not coming in here.’ And I’ve asked the sheriff. I said, ‘Are you going to back me on this?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, I’m going to back you.’ Well, I don’t want a bunch of rookies back there who have no training and little equipment. I want seasoned veteran people who are trained that have got equipment. And even then, you know we may have two or three hundred deputies facing maybe a thousand U.N. troops. We may have to call out the militia.”
After FINALLY completing the Game of Thrones audiobook series, my morning drive became quite dull until I remembered I had the This American Life app and, duh, This American Life (TAL) is basically MY
american life. (I’m not sure what that means exactly but any chance to bring the focus back to me is really what I strive for on a daily basis.) (Joking.) (Am I?)
Last week’s episode featured stories from longtime contributor and prizewinning humorist, David Rakoff. Unfortunately, David passed away last week at the way-too-young age of 47 after his cancer reappeared in his shoulder. To celebrate his life, the TAL team put together a show completely dedicated to David and there was one piece in particular that really struck a nerve with me.
I hope you all enjoyz it!
The whole segment is great but you can skip to 3:13 for the “Rent” story (although I don’t recommend it).
Yessss we’re all tired of these “Call Me Maybe” videos but YOU MUST WATCH THIS ONE. Don’t watch the Olympic swim team video, don’t watch the Abercrombie model video, watch THIS one!

It’s been done by the Harvard baseball team, “President Obama” and even Cookie Monster. It’s been done in so many ways by so many people that we thought — surely— it’d be categorically impossible to make a “Call Me Maybe” parody that was still funny.
But Steve Kardynal (of shake weight fame) has proved us wrong.
In this cringe-worthy YouTube video, Kardynal — lipsticked, bearded and scantily clad in women’s garb — shimmies and shakes in front of a Chatroulette crowd that alternates between delighted reactions and those of utter disgust.
Kardynal, known for his outlandish antics, is in top form as he lip-syncs and gyrates his way through Carly Rae Jepson’s hit song, but the priceless reactions of the other users on the online chat website are the true stars of the clip.
And though we know that the world probably doesn’t need any more “Call Me Maybes,” the grimaces of all those shirtless men sitting in half-dark rooms makes this one well worth it.
