Wedding Bells in Nairobi

More women to disappoint. If it's your second wedding of the day, do you still make the bride wear white?The wedding industry in Nairobi is waiting with baited breath and sweating groomsmen, for President Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta to approve a bill just passed late last week by Kenya’s parliament which would allow men to marry as many women as they want.

The original drafting of the bill did have some clause about the wife having a say in the husband’s choice, but naturally that wording was dropped after mild debate. Women having rights? Pfft. This is Africa.

Queue the Obamacare Divorces

Uncle Sam wants what Uncle Sam wants.It’s not you, honey---it’s the government.As more and more people are faced with canceled plans, jacked up rates, and just the joys of government incompetence, you’d think that PD would be happy that people are actually waking up to what was to us from day one the obvious disasters of Obamacare--- but in all honesty, while a bulk of libertarians are gloating, we’re only rolling our eyes.

Now the public is starting to get it, kewl---let’s move on and get to work making the arguments and cutting off big government at the knees.

Wedding Crashers: Boko Haram

Lovely Nigeria. The Boko Haram boys.As much fun as their moniker might sound, if you see any of the Islamist Boko Haram network enter your best friend’s weekend wedding reception, it’s best to grab your slice of white sheet cake and get the hell out.

The Boko Haram boys (their name literally translating to Western Education is Sinful) aren’t exactly ideal party guests.

Tunisian Women and Fall Intercourse Syrian Weddings

Good plan.Who was it in the Obama Administration that said jihad simply meant a personal struggle?Do you PDers recall how last month the mainstream media was all about chic red lines, the latest in Al Qaida approved accessories, and the need to fund World War III in a hurry?

Well, just because the media gods have shifted to a possible faux default, a miniscule government shutdown, and the new NBC Fall lineup doesn’t mean that all of the fun has stopped in Syria.

Ever heard of a sex jihad?

Genius Idea: New Mexico Mensa

Are you creeped out yet?Something is rotten in Denmark-er-New Mexico.New Mexico, the home to more kachinas than you can shake a stick at, has surfaced in the last two weeks as the American state with perhaps the most moronic Supreme Court members East of California.

Yeah, it’s that bad.

Which case should we examine first?

Honeymoon Crashers: Lebanese Style

Not just tears shed but a bit of blood.Wedding sucker-punches. Weddings rarely live up to the fairytale ideal of in-laws that fawn all over each other, exchanging recipes and relishing the thought of joining together two families, with a majestic orchestra billowing in the background. In fact, it’s usually your future mother in law that brings her own wedding cake to the reception as she is unable to fathom why you’d want to go with macaroons and cakepops instead, and your own mother who ruins the whole thing by pitching an epic fit before vows are exchanged. That’s usually how weddings go---at least so we’re told.

As crazy as Western weddings are they’re nowhere near Lebanon crazy.
