Siri Tells Little Boy to ‘Shut the F— Up,’ Calls Him ‘Ugly’

The iPhone 4S was then sent in for repairs.

Siri to Little Boy: 'Shut the F--- Up'

For all the kind and helpful advice that Apple’s Siri personal assistant gives out, don’t ever catch it on a bad day, or it’ll tell you off in ways your mother would not approve.

If a report from The Sun is to be believed, a demo unit for the iPhone 4S caught fire for telling 12-year-old Charlie Le Quesne to “Shut the f— up, you ugly t—.”

Charlie reportedly asked Siri “How many people are there in the world?” and that was the answer he got back. Together with his mother and the manager, they asked the demo iPhone 4S the same question and got the same answer back yet again. Needless to say, the demo unit was unplugged and sent back to Apple for “diagnostic tests.”

The errors seems to have stemmed from Siri thinking that the questioner’s name was “Shut the f— up, you ugly t—.”

All this happened at a U.K. Tesco supermarket. It’s worth noting that on U.K. iPhones, Siri’s default voice is that of a male and not female like it is in the U.S. So you’ll have to picture Siri cursing the poor boy out with a male British accent. I bet it sounds even funnier that way.

Israel Kills TERRORIST HAMAS Leader of Al-Qaeda-Linked Army of Islam In Gaza Airstrike…

Israel doesn’t f*ck around.

(LWJ) — The Israeli Air Force killed the emir of the al Qaeda-linked Jaish al Islam, or Army of Islam, in an airstrike in northern Gaza. The airstrike is the latest by Israel that has targeted al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists in the Gaza Strip.

Israeli fighter-bombers killed Muaman Abu Daf, the leader of the Army of Islam, in a strike in the Zeitoun district in Gaza City today. Hamas, the terror group which runs Gaza, confirmed that Abu Daf was killed in the attack. Five other Palestinians were wounded. Members of the Army of Islam wrapped Abu Daf’s body in the flag flown by al Qaeda in Iraq, Shabaab, and other al Qaeda affiliates in the Middle East.

The Israeli Defense Forces confirmed the strike and said the Air Force “targeted a terrorist squad that was identified moments before firing rockets at Israel from the northern Gaza Strip.”

“A hit was confirmed, thwarting the rocket fire attempt,” the IDF said in a statement released on its website. “The aforementioned squad is responsible for the firing of rockets at Israel in the past number of days.”

Today’s strike that killed Abu Daf is the third by the Israeli Air Force against what the IDF refers to as “Global Jihad-affiliated terrorists,” or Gaza-based groups linked to al Qaeda. On Dec. 27, the Israeli Air Force killed Abdallah Telbani, who was involved in a plot to attack Israel from the Egyptian Sinai as well as with rocket and IED attacks along the Israeli-Gaza border.

I DID Write PARTS Of The Newsletters, But Not The BAD PARTS

Oh, here’s some more of Ron Paul’s LIES….. “I wrote most of the newsletters but not the “ten” or so sentences people don’t like. Someone else (who? it’s a mystery!) wrote those”.
Dude, it’s more than ten ‘freaking’ sentences!!

Dave Weigel at Slate has the transcript from a radio interview in Iowa.

CALLER: Dr. Paul, how confident were you at the time that the newsletters that bore your name were representative of your views on taxes, on monetary policy, the Second Amendment, the Tenth Amendment, all the things that you hold dear? How confident were you that the newsletter accurately portrayed your views on those things?

PAUL: Well, the newsletters were written, you know, a long time ago. And I wrote a certain portion of them. I would write the economics. So a lot of what you just mentioned… his would be material that I would turn in, and it would become part of the letter. But there were many times when I didn’t edit the whole letter, and things got put in. And I didn’t even really become aware of the details of that until many years later when somebody else called and said, you know what was in it? But these were sentences that were put in, a total of eight or ten sentences, and it was bad stuff. It wasn’t a reflection of my views at all.

You need to read the entire interview HERE to see that Ron Paul got backed into a corner and instead of owning up to it began to LIE his way out!


Robber dies. Had long record already.

Conclusion? The world is now a better place.

The actions of a Kroger store manager who shot and killed a would-be robber inside the grocery store are being hailed by many as heroic.

But it’s also likely that the manager violated company rules on bringing guns into the workplace.

That thrusts Kroger into an awkward and unenviable place — front and center in the midst of a polarizing public debate over whether guns belong in the workplace.

Just last year, the Indiana legislature passed a law that allows employees to leave a gun in a locked car in a company parking lot — regardless of the company’s rules on firearms in the workplace.

Some argued that the law fell short — that employees should be allowed to take them into the workplace, but that’s left up to individual employers.

Kroger spokesman John Elliott confirmed that the company does have a gun policy but would not discuss its contents. Media reports have indicated that the company handbook expressly forbids employees from bringing firearms to work.

Details about Monday evening’s Kroger shooting are sketchy, but according to Indianapolis police, here’s what happened:

At about 6 p.m., Jeremy Atkinson placed a hard object against an employee’s back and forced her to an office in an attempt to rob the Kroger on West 71st Street.

Police says Atkinson was then shot in the face by 24-year-old Kroger manager Elijah Elliott. Efforts to reach Elijah Elliott were unsuccessful.

Police aren’t saying anything more until the investigation is complete, including whether the “hard object” was a gun.

What’s known is that Atkinson was convicted in 2009 in the armed robbery of a Subway sandwich shop on North Keystone Avenue. He was sentenced to four years in prison and was let go on work release this year.

He violated that work release, and in October a warrant was issued for his arrest for criminal confinement, a class B felony, police said.


Why Dimocrats And Some Independents Love Paul And NOT Republicans

I don’t know of too many conservatives crazy about a Ron Paul candidacy. For one, he’s old.

Second, he’s an isolationist.

Third, he said he would not have gone after jihadists.

Fourth, those newsletters.

Now he’s saying Iran needs nukes in order to get Israel to respect them.

The man’s a berserker. And it makes him a darling of the left.

Reporting from Perry, Iowa—

Defending himself against charges of isolationism, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul told voters in Iowa on Thursday that western sanctions against Iran are “acts of war” that are likely to lead to an actual war in the Middle East.

Paul, one of the leading contenders to win next week’s Iowa caucuses, said Iran would be justified in responding to the sanctions by blocking the flow of oil through the Strait of Hormuz. He compared the western sanctions to a hypothetical move by China to block the Gulf of Mexico, which Americans would consider an act of war…

…Apparently alluding to Israel and its nuclear-weapons arsenal, Paul said that “if I were an Iranian, I’d like to have a nuclear weapon, too, because you gain respect from them.”
