Still Cruzing in New Hampshire!

New Hampshire, according a recent Gallup Poll, is the least religious state in the US of A:
Based on the percentage of those describing themselves as very religious, 20 percent in New Hampshire said they were, slightly lower than the 22 percent who described themselves as such in Vermont, the home state of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.
Ted Cruz managed to finish third, behind Donald Trump and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and picked up 2 delegates in the Republican Primaries, as did Jeb Bush. Mark Rubio didn't get any delegate. The performance of the two most evangelical Christians on the slate just about confirm th results of the Gallup Poll, doesn't it?
A resounding "Hurrah" for these Yazidi women who are former slaves ISIS. About 600 of the survivors of unimaginable cruelty have decided to form a military battalion to take on these fellows. They are being trained by the Kurdish Peshmerga forces. I am looking forward to the release of the video of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's capture and the aftermath. 

A Saudi man dressed as a woman mascot for a bakery in Riyadh has been detained by Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice. Apparently the cross-dressed man exposed too much of her skin and hair! For a moment I thought that they had detained a wo-mannequin. Even the Saudi religious police wouldn't descend to that level of idiocy, would they? Wait... that's exactly what happened in Iran, presumably more progressive than conservative Saudi Arabia, according to the BBC.

I reject identity politics of every kind, but this is a must see:
