    Not sorry, but I've watched this video and the collection it belongs to — Idiot vs. Motorized Vehicle Much Larger Than Idiot — going on five times now. What can I say, I'm a creature of habit. All you need to know is, some 17-25ish years ago, one man and one woman had a passionate night and brought into this world a dumb. The subject of tonight's video, let's call him Kaden since that sounds like a name of a Gen X couple sublimating their lack of personality onto their child, decided to do the planking challenge on a police...

    America has witnessed months of civil unrest in cities around America following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. Many of the protesters decry income and net worth "inequality." But the most serious "inequality" is the unequal percentage of fathers in Black households, a phenomenon that has been encouraged by government policies that normalize and reward out-of-wedlock births. In 1965, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, assistant secretary of Labor to President Lyndon B. Johnson, published "The Negro Family: The Case for National Action." At that time, 25% of Blacks were born outside of wedlock, a number that this former adviser to President...

    NASHVILLE (BP) -- The death of Truett Foster McKeehan, 21, son of Christian rapper TobyMac, was caused by an accidental overdose of fentanyl and amphetamines. The cause was listed on a report from the Davidson County (Tenn.) medical examiner, according to the Tennessean newspaper. McKeehan's death was sudden. Emergency crews found him dead on arrival to his home after a call was made regarding a person in cardiac arrest. The report showed potential nitrous oxide use, known also a laughing gas, as well as Adderall and marijuana. Metro Public Health Department records for Davidson County show that deaths as a...
  • Government Funded 'Gun Violence' Research Is Really Political Propaganda

    On Monday, House and Senate negotiators announced a deal where $25 million in taxpayer funds will be spent on gun violence research, $12.5 million is earmarked exclusively for public health researchers. If history is any guide, but of the rest will also end up going to public health researchers.  Headlines claimed: “Congress reaches deal to fund gun violence research for first time in decades.” The funding described as “a major win for Democrats.” While that may sound like a good idea at first glance, it wouldn’t do anything to reduce gun violence in our country.It should go without saying that everyone...

    Another school shooting, this time by a 15-year-old at Saugus High School in California, another quest for answers. Yet, 20 years after Columbine, the United States is still looking for how to stop mass public shootings. The rest of the world, where mass public shootings are actually much more common, is also looking for solutions.

    In 2010, researchers from Harvard and Google put their heads together to determine that there are roughly 1,022,000 words in the English language. The Oxford English Dictionary lists around 600,000. Either way, that’s a lot of words. But there isn’t a word in the English language for what Donald Trump and the Republicans are doing. They are no longer merely lying. Lying is covering up the truth. Lying is, No, Mom, honest, I didn’t break Aunt Donna’s Hummel. Or: No, Your Honor, I did not bilk my investors out of $4 million and abscond to Grand Cayman. What these people...

    It’s one thing to read about the decline of San Francisco. It’s another to see it for yourself. I could hardly recognize this once-captivating city of breathtaking views, delectable food and cool jazz. Today it’s occupied by an army of homeless men and women who have turned Baghdad-by-the-bay into Bombay-by-the-bay with some of the dirtiest slums in America. I first visited San Francisco in 1964 as a member of Barry Goldwater’s political team that wrapped up the Republican presidential nomination for the candidate who offered a conservative choice, not a liberal echo. Then, we freely roamed the streets and hills...

    Fully automatic guns are illegal, but the ban on semi-automatics (of the kind used in the Orlando shootings) and related ammunition expired in 2004. That restriction should be revived; nobody needs what many call an assault rifle to hunt game or shoot clay pigeons. At the least, the size of the magazines should be limited, which could lessen the carnage of mass shootings.

    y partner wasn’t supposed to get pregnant. That’s why she had an IUD —  to prevent the pregnancy we agreed we didn’t want. Liz and I have been together for years, and though we had discussed the idea of having children, we knew we weren’t ready ,  at least not yet. And yet there we were, two New Yorkers in a Utah emergency room, holding a brand-new sonogram printout. Near the top, a nurse had drawn a white arrow pointing to the six-week-old embryo, and labeled it in big block letters: “BABY.” We’d rushed to the hospital earlier that day, knowing...

    BOSTON — For some, it’s the best four years of their lives. For others, it’s a period of constant struggle, whether academically, socially, or both. College brings about new experiences and challenges for young adults that can be difficult to adapt to and overcome, so perhaps it’s no surprise that a new study reports high rates of stress and mental health conditions among students.

    A Mississippi sheriff testified in court Wednesday that a Stone County man admitted he choked his mother until she passed out, then cut her head off. Sherry Johnson's body was discovered after deputies conducted a welfare check at her home on June 6. Her family became concerned after they had not heard from her for a few days. Terrelle Johnson, who lived with his mother, initially told authorities that his mother was on a cruise when they arrived at the home. When deputies entered the home, they found a bloodstained bedroom and then his mother's body outside, the SunHerald reports.

    Once again, a mass murderer has opened fire at a school in America – this one is Santa Fe High School in Texas – and video games are already being blamed. Rather than, oh, say, gun control, or the lack thereof. Details are still coming in. The attack happened just a few hours ago. At this stage, it appears nine students and one teacher are dead, ten more wounded, explosives were potentially found at the school, and a suspect has been taken into custody. In his segment on Fox News covering the shooting, anchor Jon Scott was chatting to a...

    CALDWELL COUNTY, N.C. - A 4-year-old Caldwell County girl was attacked inside her home by the family pet Wednesday. Family members said they had just recently adopted the dog from the humane society in Catawba County. Justina Turner, the child's mother, said she and her daughter were in the living room of her home south of Lenoir when the 3-year-old 60-pound dog suddenly attacked the child, biting her face. She said the dog bit down so hard on her daughter that she wasn't sure at first how she was going to get the animal off her. Turner said the dog...

    “Had enough?” the much younger attacker asked the victim after pummeling him for more than a minute, deputies said. The victim, who was not identified, sustained multiple face fractures and several lacerations requiring many stitches in the Friday evening attack in East Bethel. AmyJane Johnson, of St. Paul, Minn., identified herself on Facebook as the victim’s daughter-in-law and said he was 71.

    With all that’s going on in this report from the Free Beacon, it’s amazing that our military is still hitting all of its recruiting goals. But somehow they are. They don’t have all that many people to pick from, however. Just as the military is entering into a period of renewed expansion, there are fewer qualified candidates and even fewer expressing an interest. According to the Pentagon, if every person in the country age 18 to 24 showed up to apply, roughly three out of four would have to be turned away because they simply couldn’t qualify. Nearly three-quarters...

    Just hours after a lone gunman open fired on students in a Florida high school, killing at least 17, comedian Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to capitalize on the tragic incident and blame Republicans, saying that they now “have blood on their hands.” Handler, a self-proclaimed political activist, posted a tweet about midterm elections, urging voters “to elect candidates that are not funded by the NRA” and “who won’t allow kids to go to school and get shot.” "It is disgusting how many times this has happened and Republicans do nothing. You all have blood on your hands"

    Another day, another allegation. Or two or three allegations. The era of sexual McCarthyism has dawned and shows no sign of abating. And as the accusations reach back farther and farther in time, the chasm between those decades and today becomes ever more glaringly incongruous. What could be more ironic than the fact that we are experiencing an unprecedented outbreak of long-belated sexual harassment charges in a generation defined by its sexual licentiousness? We are, after all, living in an era that a 2013 article on the American Psychological Association website dubbed the “Sexual Hook-up Culture.” A time of “uncommitted...

    FULL TITLE: Should we talk about the fact that women in positions of power are sexually abusing minors under their authority too? Life isn't like a Van Halen song. I know what you're going to say. No teenage boy will object to this type of "abuse." Just as the sexes are inherently different, the distinguishing factor here is that the women in question didn't want the sexual attention. The boys not only wanted it but probably couldn't believe their luck. But you're forgetting something. There's a reason we have an age of consent that applies to both boys and girls,...
