A senior Saudi cleric has banned taking photographs of cats in a bid to stop people trying ‘to be like Westerners’.
Sheikh Saleh Bin Fawzan Al-Fazwan issued the order after being told of a new trend of animal lovers posing for pictures with their pets.
After being informed of the craze, he said during a televised broadcast: ‘What?! What do you mean pictures with cats? Taking pictures is prohibited. The cats don’t matter here.’

What they tend to omit is the fact that most of the “newly insured”—about 60 percent—have merely been dumped into Medicaid. According to the Congressional Budget Office, Obamacare has added only 8 million people—just 2.5 percent of the U.S. population—to the private insurance rolls.
When it comes to ogarbagecare, the MSM carries that ocean of water for the administration.
And at what cost? Well, the CBO says that the Obamacare subsidies for private insurance will cost $43 billion this year alone. That’s an average of $5,375 per person for those who have been added to the private insurance rolls—or $21,500 per family of four. Meanwhile, the typical 36-year-old (or younger) who makes $36,000 a year (or more) gets $0 under Obamacare. Such everyday Americans instead get to help finance that $5,375-per-person cost for those who get private insurance under Obamacare, while facing far higher premiums and significantly narrower doctor networks themselves.
If this wrecking ball was such a great deal, why wasn’t POTUS, Congress and the rest of the federal government forced into this crap? Personally, I don’t think that any of this can be “fixed.”

…if consumers like their third different plan in three years, many of them won’t be able to keep that one, either.
They laughed knowing full well that they were lying to the public.
Well, I wonder what will happen now that a federal judge has ruled that dear leader unlawfully decided to hand out subsidies to the insurers?

WHITTIER (CBSLA.com) — A man in Whittier has gone the distance for a tiny hummingbird his once-feral dog helped rescue.
As Ed Gernon explains, last year he adopted a German shepherd mix named Rex, that at the time “fought other dogs and killed cats.”
“He was dangerous,” said Gernon of Rex. “He was an animal that had learned to live on the streets and to survive on his own hunting ability, I guess.”
So, one can imagine the shock Gernon experienced when one afternoon just a month after Rex’s adoption, the dog became the rescuer, saving a very tiny and sick hummingbird.
“And he suddenly stopped and he would not move,” he recalls. “I mean it’s tiny and it’s dead as far as I’m concerned. It’s covered in ants. It’s got no feathers.”
But that’s not where the story ends.
Hummer as she is called is now living in Gernon’s home a year later.
“It’s crazy. You live with Tinkerbell. It’s like that’s what this is like,” he said.
But it’s been a long road.
In fact, Gernon had to nurse Hummer back to health (quite literally).
He feeds her a special formula every 15 minutes from sun up to sun down and even taught her how to fly using a hair dryer.
“You find yourself doing stuff you never thought in a million years you would do,” he said.
And even Rex is willing to share his water bowl with Hummer.
“It was this little creature. This fragile creature that the whole world wanted to kill and he was trying to protect her so I thought I’d go the distance,” said Gernon of Hummer, who has even let him steal a kiss.
It’s been more than a year since Hummer arrived and Gernon knows eventually she will spread her wings.
“It’s time for her to start mating and I keep leaving the doors and windows open thinking she’ll leave,” he said.
But while she’s here, he says her little wings have made a big impact.
“I rescue this dog. He rescues the bird. The bird rescues all of us in a weird sense and it’s just a miracle,” Gernon said.

Rep. Martha McSally, a Republican from Arizona, said she thinks this is an important discussion, “but I do want to correct my colleague from California, as you painted the picture of the only reason for the draft to go into front-line combat — that is not true,” she said. “We all know many people that were drafted in World War II, Korea, Vietnam who served in other positions and not the infantry.”
Plenty of jobs in the military may need filling if a draft is put into action, McSally said.
“There could be medical positions; we could need cyber warriors,” she said. “There is all sorts of positions that we would need the country ready to mobilize for, so I do think we need to make sure that people understand as we are discussing this, the intent of the draft is not to fill 100 percent of the positions with front-line infantry.”
I thought teh won and his Nobel made it so that we could all forget about the “draft” ever becoming a reality again? Okay, that was written with a chortle.

This should be priority during the elections, but it never is. Porous borders should NOT be okay.
…Among the jihadists that travel back and forth through the porous southern border is a Kuwaiti named Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir, an ISIS operative who lives in the Mexican state of Chihuahua not far from El Paso, Texas. Khabir trained hundreds of Al Qaeda fighters in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen and has lived in Mexico for more than a year, according to information provided by JW’s government source.
