“A Message to America,” a video uploaded Tuesday to YouTube, begins with a clip of President Obama announcing his recent authorization of targeted airstrikes and a humanitarian operation in Iraq. Then, around the two-minute mark, a man believed to be James Wright Foley, 40, delivers a statement:
I call on my friends, family, and loved ones to rise up against my real killers, the US government. For what will happen to me is only a result of their complacency and criminality.
My message to my beloved parents, save me some dignity, and don’t accept some meagre compensation, for my death, from the same people who effectively hit the last nail in my coffin with their recent aerial campaign in Iraq.
I call on my brother John, who is a member of the US air force. Think about what you are doing, think about the lives you destroy, including those of your own family. I call on you John, think about who made the decision to bomb Iraq recently and kill those people, whoever they may have been. Think John, who did they really kill? And did they think about me, you, our family when they made that decision?
I died that day John, when your colleagues dropped that bomb on those people they signed my death certificate. I wish I had more time. I wish I could have the hope of freedom and seeing my family once again. But that ship has sailed. I guess all in all I wish I wasn’t American.
EXECUTIONER: This is James Wright Foley, an American citizen of your country. As a government, you have been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State. You have plotted against us and have gone far out of your way to find reasons to interfere in our affairs. Today, your military air force is attacking us daily in Iraq, your strikes have caused casualties among Muslims. You’re no longer fighting an insurgency, we are an Islamic army, and a state that has been accepted by large number of Muslims world wide, so effectively, any aggression towards the Islamic State, is aggression towards Muslims from all walks of life who has accepted the Islamic caliphate as their leadership, so any attempt by you Obama to deny the Muslims their rights of living in safety under the Islamic caliphate will result in the bloodshed of your people.
NEW PRISONER SHOWN – CAPTION – Steven Joel Sotloff

Robin Williams was so much more then a great comedian, he was one of the best actors of my generation. This clip encompasses everything I came to love when I watched him. One of the few people I would pay to see his movies based solely on the actor..
Take a minute and watch this clip. We can never truly know the demons others carry, may you find piece Mr. Williams…..
Oh you handsome razor.
With an impressive black finish and light, aluminum construction, the Standard Razor is definitely something you want to think about purchasing to kick your old, overpriced, rusting disposable razors to the curb.
Let me first say this – I was skeptical when first using this razor because of the light weight. And I’ll admit, I’ve only been doing wet shaves with a double edge razor for 2 months now, so I wouldn’t say I’m a pro at it by any stretch, so you could say this review is from a beginner, or someone just getting into double edge razors.
Cut: As I mentioned before, the weight. I’m used to a steel-bodied razor, so this took a few minutes to get used to. It was hard at first to resist the temptation to put a lot of pressure on the razor to my face, but after getting used to the feel of the Standard Razor, it felt pretty familiar. The combo of the Standard Razor and Astra blade (which is included in the purchase) resulted in a clean shave. Hint: Get a blade sampler pack online to see what blade/razor combo best suits your face.
Cleaning: Unscrew the threaded handle and what’s left is the blade and holder assembly. Wash and wipe and you’re good to go. Even with the matte black finish, the shaving soap residue did not show up after a clean up. Re-assemble and you’re good to go for the next day.
Construction: Well, I think my opening statement said it all. I love the design. Great curvature on the cutting surface=good cutting angle. Fit and finish is spot on. The wonders of aluminum!
Value: This thing pretty pays for itself in the first year. Blades can be purchased for as little as $0.11/blade. A 100 pack of blades go for $10-12 and if you replace a blade every week, you wouldn’t need to buy a new package for 2 years!
