Stoned to death with her lover: Horrific video of execution of girl, 19, killed by Afghan Taliban for running away from arranged marriage
The video is at the bottom of the article but after scrolling down through images like this....


For clarity's sake, this is a photo of a 19 year old girl buried up to her waist in a burka waiting for men to throw stones at her until she is dead.

I can't imagine how someone could stomach watching the murder of a girl because she didn't want to enter into an arranged marriage. How liberals can defend such behavior is impossible to comprehend. This is murder and outrageous.

Virtual Fence Worked And Other Immigration News

Bogus Hackspeak Alert: Yes, 'One Size Fits All'
Here's news, if you define "news" as something unexpected: You know that expensive "virtual" border fence the Obama administration recently cancelled? It actually worked, acording to Janice Kephart of the Center for Immigration Studies. There were big problems with the prototype, but they fixed them. No wonder it got cancelled! ... I had always assumed the "virtual fence" was a fancy-sounding Bush administration scam to let the government weasel out of building a real, nonvirtual fence (of the sort that works well enough in California, which is why illegal immigrants and smugglers now cross in Arizona). But maybe both sorts of fences can work ...
