Seeing Things That Aren’t There

After more than a century of observation and seven spacecrafts, people continue to see weird things on the planet Mars. Case in point was a recent photo sent our way by the Curiosity rover that appeared to show a woman standing near the edge of a Martian escarpment. Turned out to be a visual aberration, of course, but why are we seeing things that aren’t there? Rest easy, folks, it’s only pareidolia, the tendency humans have to perceive familiar images, especially faces, where none exist. Hank Green fills us in on the juicy details in this edition of SciShow.

U.S., Israel Inseparable

Wild Bill says the corrupt Obama Administration has done almost everything in its power to disrupt the bond between the United States and Israel, including opening the door to the thugs in Iran to build a future nuclear weapon. But Wild Bill remains steadfast in his support of our Israeli brethren. “Israel and the USA are partners in freedom and democracy, and the entire world is witness to this,” he says. “Neither country is perfect neither government is perfect, but frankly, our two nations are better than the rest.”

Respect Your Rights

The First Amendment of the Constitution provides us with our most precious rights. If one so wishes to desecrate the American flag, he or she is protected under the First Amendment. But why, asks Alfonzo Rachel, would someone want to do this? Especially in front of veterans. Well it happened recently when a protester shouting obcenities began stomping on Old Glory in front of an American vet. Says Rachel, “That flag represents we the people who understand the balance of freedom. It does not represent those who take liberties with other peoples’ rights.” See the rest of Zo’s logic in this edition of “Zonation” on PJTV.

The Wrong Side Of History

If you opposed the recent Supreme Court decision to legalize gay marriage, you were on the wrong side of history. Opposing the legalization of marijuana branded you as stuck in the past. According to whom, you ask? President Obama, of course, who’s also tossed out the term, “the right side of history,” with abandon. Obama has flirted with these Marxist terms throughout his six-plus years in the White House, but is there really a wrong side and right side? “What unites both terms is arrogance and cowardice,” says nationally syndicated columnist and best-selling author Jonah Goldberg. “The notion that history is moving in an inevitable direction is ancient. But in modern times it’s main champion is Karl Marx.” In this edition of Prager University, Goldberg explains further, including why the terms have different meanings domestically and abroad.

Another Black Monday

Fox News Business Channel’s Stuart Varney reacts to Monday’s 1089-point collapse in early trading, the biggest-ever drop in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The Dow recovered slightly, closing the day with a 588-point drop. A visibly excited Varney tells viewers, “I do believe the circuit breakers kick in if you hit 7 percent. We’re at 6.4 percent now, if we hit 7 percent the action closes down on the New York Stock Exchange.” The market eventually reached 6.62 percent, but rallied late, avoiding a shutdown.
