In which a Groupon employee blackmails a restaurant: This one-star review doesn’t come without a degree of bias. See, Andy J. (aka Andrew Johnson) is a sales rep for Groupon, and in his last email to the business owner, he wrote this phrase: "As a resident of San Francisco for over 25 years, I have a huge network of friends (ages 25-40) that all are extremely active on Yelp as well as other social media. I will gladly let them know how you treated me as well as my feelings about the people who run Sauce." Blackmailing someone into using your service; yeah, that seems like an effective approach.

There’s a bus full of nuns headed towards Washington to lobby against the Ryan plan. Do you have any power to pull the nuns on the bus over and pistol whip them?
Conservative talk radio host Jan Mickelson • Wondering if congressional members have the power to condone police brutality during an interview with Iowa Representative Tom Latham. Latham did not reply to or condone the remarks, even as Mickelson attempted to justify them. According to Mickelson, the National Catholic Social Justice Lobby started everything by deciding to picket the “Ryan Plan,” Republican Rep. Paul Ryan’s controversial economic plan. “They say he is fake Catholic,” said Mickelson, adding, “They’re the ones that threw the first punch.” (Check the source for audio of the whole thing.) source (viafollow)

Gaddafi will either commit suicide, which is unlikely as suicide is a sin in Islam; or he may go out for others to kill him - he and his rifle in a bloody and fatal confrontation against a huge force. However under such difficult situations, human behaviour cannot be predicted. The second scenario is 90% likely to happen.
Former Libyan official (and current opposition supporter) Abdel Fattah Younes • Explaining, in an article for Al Jazeera English, what he thinks will happen to his former boss, Muammar Gaddafi. Younes, the former interior minister and head of Special Forces, says he quit partly because the “victims were too many for no justification.” Read everything he wrote. It’s really good. source (viafollow)

South Korea’s traitor puppet regime must recognize the seriousness of the situation and immediately stop anti-(North Korea) psychological warfare.
A message from Korean Central News Agency • Which also happens to threaten gunfire at South Korea if they do that annual joint drill thing they tend to do with the United States. No, this story is not a repeat of every other time South Korea done this joint drill thing with the United States. It’s a new story. We even double-checked it and the timestamp says it was published like an hour ago. So we don’t know. In other news, we’re going to call our new pet gerbil “Traitor Puppet Regime.” It has a nice ring to it. source (viafollow)

He is a very honest man, a man with dignity. I hope this caretaker government will get the support of Libyans and of the international community.
Libyan Ambassador to the U.S. Ali Aujali • Suggesting a possible successor to Muammar Gaddafi to the international community. His suggestion, a caretaker government led by ex-Justice Minister Mustafa Abdel-Jalil, is notable because Abdel-Jalil is a loud-and-clear critic of Gaddafi’s recent actions who also recently claimed that he has proof Gaddafi orchestrated the Lockerbie bombing way back when. Aujali says that Abdel-Jalil ”will do everything to end this regime. This government is for the whole of Libya.” But will he gain support? That’s the important part which any possible new figurehead will need. source (viafollow)
