So... are any of you idiots gonna change your most recent Facebook profile photo (I'm addressing those who have identified with the French Flag graphic) to the Kenyan flag?
Forgive the dripping contempt... but as you all know... observing the Sheeple in action tends to arouse my ire.
Anyway... for your edification:

At least 147 people, mostly students, have been killed in an assault by al-Shabab militants on a university in north-eastern Kenya.
More than 500 students managed to escape, 79 of whom were injured.
Heavily armed attackers stormed Garissa University early on Thursday, killing two security guards then firing indiscriminately on students.
The militants singled out Christians and shot them, witnesses said.
The United States said it was offering Nairobi assistance to take on al-Shabab and would continue to work with others in the region to take on the group.
* YEAH... OK... BECAUSE OBAMA'S BEEN DOING SUCH A FINE JOB "FIGHTING TERRORISM" ELSEWHERE...
(*ROLLING MY EYES*)
* AGAIN... FOLKS... WE NEED TO RELY UPON OURSELVES. AND WE NEED TO ELECT SANE LEADERS! BETWEEN THE LEFTISTS AND THE NEOCONS...
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned what he called a "terrorist attack" and said the UN was ready to help Kenya "prevent and counter terrorism and violent extremism."
* OH... WELL... IF UN SECRETARY-GENERAL BAN KI-MOON CONDEMNS IT...
* OH, YEAH, FOLKS, BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW WHAT A BANG-UP JOB THE UN IS KNOWN FOR DOING...
Kenyan troops entered Somalia in October 2011 in an effort to stop the Islamists from crossing the long, porous border between the two countries and kidnapping people - but their presence achieved the opposite effect, provoking al-Shabab to increase its activity in Kenya, our correspondent adds.
The group was behind the Westgate shopping mall attack, when 67 people were killed.
* RECALL THE ABOVE THE NEXT TIME THE NEOCONS CALL FOR FOREIGN INTERVENTIONS...
* RECALL THAT IN THE REAL WORLD... GOOD INTENTIONS HAVE A NASTY HABIT OF BLOWING UP IN OUR FACES...
* BY THE WAY, FOLKS... THIS OCCURRED IN APRIL! YEP! THAT'S RIGHT! THIS ISN'T "BREAKING NEWS."
* SO WHY AM I POSTING IT? WHY AM I ONLY NOW - AT THE END OF THE POST - "CLUING YOU IN?"
* SIMPLE. AGAIN: I HAVE A LOW TOLERANCE FOR STUPIDITY... AND FOR SHEEPLE. I'M TRYING TO GET YOU PEOPLE TO FOCUS! I'M TRYING TO GET YOU PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT'S BEEN GOING ON! AND JUST FOR "YUCKS"... I'M TRYING TO GET YOU "IN SOLIDARITY WITH THE FRENCH LET'S CHANGE OUR FACEBOOK PROFILE PHOTO" NITWITS TO UNDERSTAND THAT IF YOU SPENT MORE TIME EDUCATING YOURSELVES AND LESS TIME LATCHING ON TO THE LATEST "FASHIONABLE" SOCIAL TRENDS... IT WOULD BENEFIT YOU AND HOPEFULLY LEAD YOU TO BEING BETTER CITIZENS... AND BETTER PARENTS.
* RANT OFF...
