    FULL TITLE: Dozens of students walk out of graduation ceremony in protest moments before Vice President Mike Pence delivers commencement speech at Christian school Taylor University Dozens of Indiana college students walked out of Vice President Mike Pence's commencement speech at Taylor University's graduation ceremony this weekend.

While a majority of the faculty and class of 494 students remained seated for the speech, many wore stickers on their caps saying 'We are...

Out now! Made this song with @BrendonUrie and @iamJoelLittle. @Dave_meyers and I co-directed the video. And everyone knows you can’t spell awesome without DAVIDBRENDONJOEL. Oh wait…,” she wrote Instagram.
  • Man takes down a Buck with a Glock 10mm

    When we talk about Glocks, most of us usually think these are used by law enforcement for service or for personal protection. Handgun hunting is really not at the top of the list, but there are the few minority that carry Glocks for hunting. Most folks either love it or hate it. So, according to Youtuber Braydon Price having a Glock 10mm was a good choice to have for his situation. He was able to take down a big whitetail buck. For this situation, Braydon went with his Glock 40 since it was easier for him to pull it out...
  • Ariana Grande's tattoo says "BBQ Grill" in Japanese instead of "7 rings"

    In celebration of her new hit single, "7 Rings," pop star Ariana Grande got a new tattoo on the palm of her hand, paying homage to the song and its music video. The star said she had the phrase "7 rings" tattooed in Kanji, a Japanese style of writing. But it actually spells "BBQ Grill," as some of Grande's Japanese fans quickly pointed out. The two characters separately mean seven (七) and ring (輪), but together "七輪" means Shichirin, the name for a small charcoal grill. Amazon offers several 七輪 for sale. The combined characters roughly translate to "7 wheels"...

    Trends come and trends go. My parents were dirt poor, so there are no pictures of me in parachute pants, thankfully. Likewise, since my parents were super-strict fundamentalist Christians, there are no photos of me with a mullet or, worse, a rat tail. Many of my friends, though, have embarrassing photos of themselves sporting now-discarded embarrassing clothing and hair trends. Like past style trends, the new trend of women sporting unicorn armpit hair is producing an avalanche of photo evidence that will undoubtedly be smirked at by future generations. Unlike many past style trends, unicorn armpit hair is rooted in...

    It's 2019. We need to stop shaming women who refuse to succumb to stereotypical gender norms-women have every right to embrace their body hair. Gloriously, the first month of the new year has been dubbed "Januhairy," an ongoing celebration on social media encouraging women to grow out and show off their body hair. Now, women are dynamic, radiant, vibrant beings-so, naturally, Januhairy got really colorful. On Instagram, some women are dying their armpit hair in rainbow shades and calling them #UnicornPits. Girls just wanna have fun.

However, he is not to be blamed for his hate & blabber...he is just plain hateful, envious, dumb & weak. Case closed!!! The folks that really deserve blame are the idiot, buffoon voters in the state of Utah that elected this fool, moron, Romney, to a U.S. Senate Seat. Actually if they had...

    Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) declined the White House chief of staff role on Friday, making him the latest high-profile candidate who's no longer in the running for the influential post. Christie and President Trump reportedly met Thursday evening to discuss the role of replacing John Kelly, who will be departing as chief of staff by the end of the year. “It’s an honor to have the President consider me as he looks to choose a new White House chief-of-staff,” Christie wrote in a statement shared by Maggie Haberman of the New York Times on Friday. “However, I’ve...

    Beto O’Rourke is calling for the removal of a controversial Confederate plaque hanging in the Texas State Capitol building, tweeting on Tuesday to “take it down today.” The plaque contains the Children of the Confederacy’s creed, which is a statement that pledges “to study and teach the truths of history (one of the most important of which is, that the War between the States was not a rebellion, nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery).”

    March for Our Lives co-founder David Hogg said politicians should have addressed the problem of school shootings "centuries ago." . . Hogg decided to postpone his first year of college to work on November's midterm elections. He has said he has his eyes on running for political office in the future, and has expressed support for progressive causes and candidates such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, calling the New York congressional candidate a "future president of the United States."

    And it turns out in 2016, the federal government decided it a worthy cause to fund a study to see if taking selfies increases happiness. It involved creating two smartphone apps for participants to take photos and record their moods...documenting responses and mapping conclusions: the total cost was about $500,000. “We spent close to a half a million dollars on this study and I think they ought to give it back,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) in an interview last week, calling it an excessive and unnecessary use of our tax dollars... But supporters say it's also a minuscule amount...

    A few months before my 42nd birthday, I was out to dinner with friends and found myself seated next to a well-known older male writer. I happened to be in the final stages of finishing a proposal for a memoir about being a single woman over 40 without children, and was inwardly marveling at the timing of our encounter. I was a fan of his. Perhaps he might offer some wisdom? Words of encouragement? As drinks were delivered I sketched the outline of the story: No one had prepared me for how exhilarating life could be on my own. I...

    Liberty Island was evacuated Wednesday as a woman was arrested for trying to scale the iconic Statue of Liberty to protest President Trump. The woman, who appeared to be black and could be seen holding up a T-shirt displaying the words “Rise and Resist” and “Trump Care Makes Us Sick,” was able to scale the base of the statue. She was arrested by two rappelling police officers after an hours-long standoff on America’s Independence Day. The whole island was evacuated as a precaution.

  • Parkland Student Cameron Kasky Slams Trump After NRA Speech: He’s a ‘Professional Liar’

    Parkland student survivor Cameron Kasky appeared on CNN this morning to respond to President Trump‘s big speech to the NRA. The speech touched on a lot of topics––including Russia and John Kerry‘s bicycle injury––but it was a very pro-NRA speech. It was somewhat of a shift from comments the President made in that bipartisan meeting with lawmakers weeks ago talking about things like taking guns away from people and dealing with due process later. In response to this, Kasky said today, “He’s a professional liar who will say anything to appease whatever crowd he’s at. If he’s in front of...
