    I just noticed that it's ľs of the way through September 23, 2017, the day that was supposed to be the last day of the world, and I'm still here? Is everyone else still here as well, or am I and my lady all alone and everyone else already gone? What about it? Has anyone else experienced the Apocholypso Dance? Any Catastrophes out there? How about a Cat-Ass-Trophy, you know the taxidermied rear end of a cat mounted on a plaque hanging on the wall? Mild disaster? I thought not. The guy who was making the prediction when called for...

    From the LA Slimes: A quarterback for high school powerhouse Orange Lutheran (funny how all the great schools are religious, isn't it?) not only dominated the game, but he also sang the national anthem BEFORE the game. A beautiful respite prior to the debacle known as the NFL, aka "F*%# White America!" tour. Exerpt: There doesn’t seem to be anything that Orange Lutheran quarterback Ryan Hilinksi can’t do on a football field. The 6-foot-3 junior had completed 73.1% of his passes coming into Friday night for 1,451 yards and eight touchdowns, leading the No. 13 Lancers to a perfect record...

    ROME, September 23, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Expressing “profound grief” and “filial devotion,” Catholic clergy and lay scholars from around the world have issued what they are calling a “Filial Correction” to Pope Francis for “propagating heresy.” The Filial Correction, in the form of a 25-page letter, bears the signatures of sixty-two Catholic academics, researchers, and scholars in various fields from twenty countries. They assert that Pope Francis has supported heretical positions about marriage, the moral life, and the Eucharist that are causing a host of “heresies and other errors” to spread throughout the Catholic Church. The correction was delivered to...

An NBA source told The Post the deal will be announced Monday.

    It wasn’t LSD that killed a Ventura woman who died while attending a music festival last May, according to an amended cause of death released Wednesday by the San Luis Obispo County Coroner’s Office. Baylee Ybarra Gatlin, 20, died of multi-organ failure, hyperthermia (overheating) and dehydration, with other significant contributors listed as coagulopathy (a bleeding disorder) and “possible LSD intoxication” after attending the Lightning in a Bottle music festival at Lake San Antonio, according to “a clarification” that an office spokesman said was submitted by former county medical examiner Dr. Gary Walter. The new report was delivered to SLO County...

    What a day this has been. I live in South Georgia and Irma felled a pine tree in my back yard. Missed the house, thank God. I have been lopping off small branches with my Fiskar Lopper and hauling them to the street for local pick-up but ordered a DeWALT battery-powered chainsaw to handle the big stuff. My new battery powered DeWALT chainsaw arrived last night by UPS. This morning, I read the manual carefully, charged up the battery, and got to work on my tree. After 2 hours of cutting wood and hauling it to the street (in 30...

    U.S. first lady Melania Trump met Saturday with Britain’s Prince Harry as she led a delegation to Toronto for the opening of an Olympic-style competition for wounded service members and veterans that he founded several years ago.

It was also her first time meeting the prince, the White House said. The first lady also planned to meet Saturday with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, address the nearly 100 U.S. athletes participating...

    Mike Goski stared into the steel casket at his twin brother’s body, dressed for eternity in a deep-blue Marine Corps jacket with red piping and brass buttons. It was like looking into a cruel mirror, Chris’s face, so like his own, distorted by a wound the mortician couldn’t conceal. Alone together for the last time, Mike slipped a knife into his brother’s hand, a weapon for Valhalla, the mythical refuge for fallen warriors. ...“Chris had only one fear that I’m aware of, and it was not death,” Mike said as he stood beside the coffin that held his twin. “He...

    A victim himself of the sport, Marc Buoniconti wants youth football banned. He hasn’t always felt that way. Now, as his Buoniconti Fund and the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis also researches head trauma, the former college linebacker paralyzed from the shoulders down in a game nearly 32 years ago has a different view. As he has learned more about concussions and has seen his father, Hall of Famer Nick Buoniconti, have significant cognitive issues in recent years, Marc Buoniconti is adamant that children should not play football. “For me, my opinion has changed 180 degrees,” Buoniconti told The Associated...

Trump tweeted Saturday morning that he had "withdrawn" his invitation to the Warriors to visit the White House and celebrate their 2017 championship win. "Going to the White House is considered a great honor for a championship team.Stephen Curry is hesitating,therefore invitation is withdrawn!" Trump tweeted.
  • Blame progressive republicans for the 16th amendment

    09/23/2017 10:06:15 AM PDT · by ProgressingAmerica · 8 replies
    Far too often, articles or books are written about how bad the 16th amendment is(which it absolutely is) but then the authors turn around and point to Woodrow Wilson. This is historical malpractice. It is said that 42 states ratified the 16th amendment, and 40 of those did so prior to March 4, 1913, which was when Wilson was inaugurated. Massachusetts ratified the 16th on the same day, March 4th, and New Hampshire followed a few days later on March 7th. So let me get this straight: Woodrow Wilson as president was so strong and powerful that he reached back...

    LeBron James called Donald Trump a "bum" after the US President rescinded an invitation for Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry to go to the White House. Trump tweeted Saturday that Curry is no longer invited to the White House because of what the president called hesitation by the two-time NBA MVP in deciding whether to make the traditional champions' trip to Washington. That prompted an angry response from Cleveland Cavaliers star James. James tweeted: "U bum. Stephen Curry already said he ain't going! So therefore ain't no invite. Going to White House was a great honour until you showed...

    Senator, John McCain is much like Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, Idi Amen, Nero, Caligula, etc. Today he basks in the glory in denying the people of Arizona and the United States of America the opportunity to receive a vast improvement in their healthcare access. His hate, like those mentioned above is filled with the same hate and envy that all of these misfit human beings brought to earth. He is the worst of political whores and certainly has no loyalty to anyone but himself. History will not be kind to him...he will perish to eternity as a failed human...
