An agnostic man in Rancho Cordova was shocked to learn that every city council meeting begins with prayer. Steve Vincent thinks it’s ridiculous for people in government to spend their time praying together in a public meeting. To point that out, he offered to give an invocation as a minister of the church of the flying spaghetti monster. Since the secular government technically has to allow equal exercise of all faiths, they accepted his offer. Here are some excerpts from his prayer, which he delivered with open eyes:
“I’m not sure what the point of praying here is.
You’re an agenda item on a government meeting. It just, I’m not sure that’s what, you had in mind for prayer, God.”
I know you want us to do what’s right, and to treat our neighbors with respect, so I have to wonder if our non-believing neighbors are being respected if we pray here.”

There’s a 70-foot granite wall in New York City which is covered in the names of the men killed during the invasion of Vietnam. This week, on the 12th anniversary of the Invasion of Afghanistan, the Vietnam Veterans gathered at their memorial to remember, to sing songs, and to read aloud the names of those who died. But police had other plans for the surviving Vets. As they read names from the wall, police began to arrest attendees, many of them senior citizens, and shove them into a paddy wagon. The attendees were calling for an end to the violence and interventionism, but were arrested because their vigil went past 10:00 p.m. Law enforcers stood ready to pad their monthly quotas by making some arrests.
Jeff Durkin of We Are Change CT live-streamed the arrests. Another person tweeted a picture of the arrests and reported that the arrests began while the names were still being read, prompting people to sing “Which side are you on?” The Memorial Wall was built using tax dollars, but, as PoliceStateUSA.com put it, no veterans’ vigil is going to stand in the way of police racking up some arrest numbers. The right to peaceably assemble on public property evidently does not exist after 10:00 p.m.
Former wrestler Jesse Ventura is running for President in 2016. He recently said that if elected, he would immediately pardon Chelsea Manning and Edward Snowden. Ventura also pledged to close down all US military bases overseas including the naval base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, where the United States keeps terrorism suspects indefinitely. Obama pledged to shut down Gitmo in his first year as President, but he didn’t. “What are we doing there?" Jesse Ventura asked. He said he will only run for President in 2016 with the support of radio personality Howard Stern. The former governor vowed not to seek money from lobbyists and said the radio host could use his show to raise funds. Ventura was in Washington to promote his new book "They Killed Our President," which alleges that the 1963 Kennedy assassination was a conspiracy in reaction to his efforts to reduce war.
