  • If I wanted to cripple America (Vanity)

    02/05/2016 8:31:07 PM PST · by Crucial · 14 replies
    02/05/2016 | Myself
    What's the best way to cripple America? Well, for one, I'd do it in secret because angry Americans are historically pretty lethal. Secondly, I would do it slowly so that even though I will be boiling the frog, he won't notice until it's too late. I would befriend people high up in the government or rise to high posts in the government. Then, I would strike at the heart of America because when you want to kill something you strike at its most vital part. All this is pretty common sense so far, right? So what is the most vital...

    Thanks for standing with me all of these years. Your steadfast support and commitment to fighting important conservative battles has meant so much to Karen and me. As you may have heard, I announced tonight that I will be ending my Presidential campaign. While the results were not what we had hoped, the experience of running for President was tremendously gratifying and something I won't soon forget. And as Karen and I discussed leaving the Presidential race, we also talked about who we should support now that I am stepping aside. There are many qualified, conservative candidates in the race...

    With over 1,000 restaurants in the continent, KFC is the leading fast food chain in Africa. But its dominance is limited to South Africa, home to about 80 percent of them. Despite its success, the company faces many challenges as they try to establish the brand in other regions, for example by making sure its food is relevant and recognizable to Africans. Serving jollof rice, a spicy dish native to West Africa, is one way in which KFC is improvising to win over palates in Africa’s largest economy, Nigeria.

    GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. - Actor James Woods says God and his Jeep saved him from a near-catastrophic pileup in Colorado. The 68-year-old actor and six other drivers wrecked in the Glenwood Canyon portion of I-70 on Monday. Woods recounted the crash, which nearly sent him over a cliff, in more than a dozen tweets. He wrote another man was driving 75 mph on icy roads and spun out. According to Woods, he hit a wall trying to avoid the other vehicle, and spun in the opposite direction going 60 mph.

    What is a brokered convention? A candidate must secure a majority - not just a plurality - of votes prior to the convention. If a candidate has not secured a majority of votes prior to the convention, then there will be a first ballot at the convention. Delegates must vote to their pledged candidate on the first ballot. If after the first ballot, there is still no majority, then the convention becomes brokered. At this time, the delegates are released from their pledges and the deal making begins. The last GOP brokered convention was in 1948. The last Democratic brokered...

    Ammoland ^ | 6 October, 2015 | Dean Weingarten
    Is the .22 bubble finally bursting? I have, with many others, been watching WalMart for .22 ammunition. It is a good indicator that demand may be saturating, and prices dropping. For two years, the availability of .22 long rifle ammunition in WalMart stores has been very spotty. They have had a “3 boxes per customer limit” for most of that period. When .22 ammunition comes in, it is snapped up by the first few customers; then the shelves are bare until the next shipment, which usually happens a week or more later. On September 30th, in a Dallas WalMart near...

Caroline Berriman’s teenage victim spoke out Tuesday to detail his twittered relationship with the 30-year-old Abraham Moss Community School assistant, the Manchester Evening News reported. Berriman dodged jail time when she pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child charges last week. Instead, she was sentenced to community service and ordered to pay fines.

Research suggests the domesticated pets can't solve problems as well as their wild cousins because living with us has made them 'incapable of thinking for themselves.' In tests, experts presented a 'puzzle box' containing food to a group of dogs, and a group of wolves and while the wolves were capable of breaking inside, the dogs looked to humans for help.

The monthly report from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries also said a weaker outlook for China would contribute to slower global oil demand growth next year. "U.S. oil production has shown signs of slowing," OPEC said in the report.

The political process is already poisoned with it, and unless something is done the stituation will only get worse. It's hard to tell which candidate believes exactly what, and whether they can be trusted, or are they just posturing. Maybe people could post here about which candidates have what positions. And whether they are sincere.

    On Sept. 9, Queen Elizabeth II will become the longest reigning British monarch, surpassing the record held previously by her great-great grandmother, Victoria, who reigned for 63 years, 216 days. Victoria became Queen June 20, 1837 and died Jan. 22, 1901. Allowing for leap years and the time of day at which each monarch was told of the death of their predecessor, it has been calculated that Queen Elizabeth will pass that landmark time at around 5:30 p.m. in the U.K. — or 12:30 p.m. EST. Elizabeth II became queen on the death of her father, George VI, Feb. 6,...

The Grimsby man was surprised to hear the Jays had lost recently in games when Tom Mulcair, Stephen Harper, and Justin Trudeau were in the stands. “That’s crazy, they always win now; they never lose,” he said, shaking his head. But if keeping the Jays winning means Harper, Mulcair, and Trudeau have to avoid the stadium, so be it....

    Taylor Swift's latest music video is being battered by critics who claim it is racist and pandering to 'rich white fantasies' from a colonial era. The video for Wildest Dreams, which was revealed during the MTV VMA Awards coverage on Sunday, has a mainly white cast and revolves around two 1950s-era movie stars - played by Swift and Gran Torino actor Scott Eastwood - filming in Africa.
