    This is a post from a seller who recently sold an old phone on eBay and ran in to this little kerfuffle: Seller: I sold an old broken iPhone 4 for $15. I shipped the item like I normally do and I definitely remembered to put the phone in the envelope along with my thank you for purchasing letter and packing slip. However I received a detailed message about what the buyer intended to do if he didn't receive his $15 back within 24 hours. Since I can't post a screen shot I'll copy the text of what he said....

    Controversial former MP George Galloway is to seek election as the next mayor of London. The Respect Party leader, who has threatened a legal challenge over his general election defeat, declared his bid on Twitter.

"I'm standing for Mayor of London 2016," he added. On 7 May, Mr Galloway lost the Bradford West Commons seat he took from Labour, his former party, in a 2012 by-election. The seat was won by...

    After being derided and charged with trafficking in wild conspiracy theories, Glenn Beck redoubled his warnings that the uprisings in Egypt could lead to an Islamic caliphate spreading across the Middle East on his radio show Thursday. Beck has come under criticism for his doomsday vision of the potential fallout from the Egyptian revolution. He has warned that the world is "being divvied up" by the "uber left" and the "Islamicists," and that what was formerly "Ancient Babylon" could emerge as the new seat of "evil" and center of the new caliphate.

    The mass media, in their coverage of Obama's speech, outlining his new strategy on managing the crisis of the 'Islamic Caliphate', are acting as retail merchants for the White House and State Department's campaign of deception on Syria and Iraq. The most obvious aspect of this co-operative effort is seen in the repetition of the mythology that Obama hasn't yet tried assisting rebel forces in Syria. Such claims are so divorced from reality they are staggering. Even so, Americans are, in the main, so willfully misinformed, that they are easy targets for the false narratives they are fed in deceitful...

En route, an assassin shot the mayor in the back. According to his bodyguards, a sniper fired at Kernes from long range. Hitting the back of a running man at a distance -- the upper body mass, to use the lingo -- indicates a crack sniper fired the shot. But even at close range, a running man can be a tough target.

    Optical scientists at the University of Arizona and University of Central Florida have developed a new type of laser technology capable of sending high-intensity beams through the atmosphere much farther than what was previously possible. The research, which was recently published in the journal Nature Photonics, is still in the laboratory phase. However, with further development, this technology could be used to divert lightning bolts away from buildings in the future. Heres how that works. When the laser is fired, the high intensity beam leaves a channel of plasma (ionized molecules stripped of their electrons) in its wake. This column...

The president, in a surprise decision Saturday, announced he would seek a vote in Congress on launching a military attack against the Assad regime. One senior State Department official, though, told Fox News that the presidents goal to take military action will indeed be carried out, regardless of whether Congress votes to approve the use of force.

The measure ultimately passed, 46-24, despite Republican opposition. Torres began her floor speech by noting the words of Todd Akin - though not mentioning his name. The U.S. Senate candidate from Missouri sparked a national...

Christians almost universally believe that Jesus was fully human and also fully divine. Put another way, Christians believe there is a Jesus of history and a theological Jesus somehow united in one person.

    Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) tells MSNBC regulations create jobs because a business will have to hire people to help them comply with the new requirement. "I think the answer is no," Ellison said when asked if he believes regulations kill jobs. "And here is why: When we talked about increasing fuel efficiency standards, the industry responded, and they need engineers and designers and manufacturers, and they need actually more people to help respond to the new requirement." "I believe if the government says, look, we have got to reduce our carbon footprint, you will kick into gear a whole number...

The US Mission to the UN reacted strongly to

    HR 2278, a bill to limit the use of funds appropriated to Department of Defense for United States Armed Forces in support of North Atlantic Treaty Organization Operation Unified Protector with respect to Libya, unless otherwise specifically authorized by law. Mr. Speaker I rise to oppose this legislation, which masquerades as a limitation of funds for the president's war on Libya but is in fact an authorization for that very war. According to HR 2278, the US military cannot be involved in NATO's actions in Libya, with four important exceptions. If this passes, for the first time the president would...

They have their own Facebook page and countless videos on YouTube. He's even been interviewed from the road by a pair of Iowa DJs. Plenty of people laugh at the idea and dismiss Nefer as a crazy person, but those...
