Radical cleric Choudary among nine arrested in UK counter-terror raids (Video)

Long overdue.

Police in London have finally arrested the most notorious  Islamist in Britain. Radical cleric, Anjem Choudary was one of 9 men taken into custody by officers from Scotland Yard’s counter-terrorism command on Thursday morning.

According to The Guardian newspaper, Choudary was picked up on charges of “encouraging terrorism”:

I don’t expect our government to enforce a similar hard-line approach to combat Islamist extremism in the United States until the current Regime is gone.  Our national security focus will continue to be on tea party extremists, pro-lifers, climate change and  the Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes.

Possible Niblets Sighting In St. Louis

A St. Louis Today columnist named, Bob Rybarczyk has been seeing rabbits in his yard. Rabbits that are wreaking havoc on his flower gardens.

I looked out the window. Sure enough, two big fat bunnies were plunked down next to the flowers and were munching away (bunnies is munchy) on our petunias. It was like watching a couple of truckers at the counter in a greasy-spoon diner.

Sound familiar? Big fat bunnies?  Could it be that Niblets found a partner in crime?

The chump thought he had outwitted the bunnies when he moved the potted plants to a safer location. But the next weekend, when the weather was finally nice enough to do some planting, he and his wife planted the flowers in their garden. And oh…how proud of them they were!

And you know, they made our garden look really nice. Again, I’m not really a hardcore gardener, but I did appreciate how nice everything looked.

It would be a shortlived pride, for Niblets returned with yet another friend.

…to my surprise, three gigantic bunnies bolted from underneath the big bush next to my garden. I’d had no idea they were there. Unlike the squirrel, which continued to haul butt, the bunnies just ran to the edge of my yard and stopped.

They sat and stared at me.I stared right back.“We munched all your tasty plants, chump, their eyes said. And we’ll be back”.

You see? There’s no longer even a pretense of cuteness, with the Niblets gang. The masks have slipped.  

But Rybarczyk isn’t gonna take this lying down. 

If I ever catch you, my eyes said back, I’m going to rip out your spinal cords and use them to hang your mutilated corpses from the nearest tree.

My heart is torn between fearing for my once beloved pet *cough*, and uh….rooting for Rybarczyk.  I’m probably going to have to say 5,000 Hail Mary’s to make up for it, but I think I’m rooting for Rybarczyk.

More Garden Blogging

I had a horrible nightmare the night before last. But first, some background:

I had been nagging my husband to cut off the extra yards of fence we got for the garden (and was still attached to the garden fence), so we could use it for a rabbit enclosure, so poor Niblets could run around in the yard, without running away.

Well, in my dream, he took the whole fence down, and left my garden vulnerable to the rabbits. Well, when I went to check on it….there was nothing left, they had devoured every single plant in the garden, even the weeds. All that was left were a few stumps.

The dream was so vivid that when I went to check on it, yesterday morning, I was actually relieved to see that it was still there.

But it’s doing great. I haven’t had to buy lettuce or onions for weeks, and yesterday, we had our first tomato.

And, really, there’s nothing like home grown tomatoes. I’m so happy I can grow them now.
