The late actor used the moniker since childhood, when he adopted the name of the family dog.

    Obviously, the safety issue is very important. But, I don't know a single gun owner who doesn't know when and where he/she can safely fire their weapons. Why do it? 1. Americas revolution was an armed revolution -- and not a fireworks display -- that led to the freedom of this nation. People died. People gave 'their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.' 2. Fireworks are nice, pretty, a crowd pleaser. And, for a country that understands their past, present, and future freedom, fireworks are a good reminder. When our own Veterans Administration can't remember that "Independence Day" is...

    Media report that protesters gathered in Kiev on Sunday to voice their anger at President Poroshenko's truce with rebels. Around 8.000 people came to Maydan central square. From myself I shall add that it was not just protesters, there were many self-defence units and commanders of battalions who warned president openly that he going to repeat fate of former president Yanukovich if he won't do what he promised and also they warned that action on Maydan on Sunday was last peaceful gathering. Today so called truce coming to an end and gas addicted eurocrats must come up with the sanctions...

    If election were today one month after they went on May 25 then our new president would receive no votes at all. Today's headlines President Poroshenko extends truce for east... What they call truce turned out to be killing of Ukrainian soldiers. All country was waiting for action, tens thousand of refugees living in fields and parks wait for army to restore order and our president decide to extend truce. Meanwhile Russians dig in and bringing more tanks and heavy artillery from Russia while Ukraine wait for what western masters will tell them to do. With other words our new...

    Harris V. Quinn had union leaders quaking in their boots since this decision couldve struck down laws in 26 other states requiring other public-sector employees to pay union dues. One labor official said such a result would bring about "the possible final destruction of the American labor movement." The official added, "It would cause the death not only of public sector unions and what's left of private sector unions, but also the Democratic Party," suggesting that the demise of unions would make Democrats more reliant on Wall Street money.

    With the Delaware delegation deadlocked on the question of approving the Declaration of Independence in the Continental Congress, Caesar Rodney rode 70 miles in a thunderstorm the night of July 1, 1776 to arrive in Philadelphia as the vote for independence began the next morning. Rodney cast the deciding vote for Delaware in favor of independence, and would eventually sign the Declaration on August 2, 1776. Rodney's ride is depicted on the back of the Delaware quarter, issued in 1999.

    The following is mostly satire. Chelsea Clinton said that she has tried very hard to care about money apparently, it is not so easy when you dont have to earn it. Chelsea is obviously afflicted by the disease common among elected Democrats. If they cared about money, they wouldnt spend so much of the taxpayers. In calling for amnesty, Sen. Chuck Schumer said that he was very concerned about what demographic changes will mean to the future of the Republican party. Amazingly, leaders of the Stupid Party actually think he is being sincere. President Obama attacked his friends in...

    It was pizza night at the Di Leo household, and, yes, like any good entertainer, I take requests. One for plain cheese, one for sausage, one for pepperoni and black olives. My bride gets mushrooms, black olives and jalapenos. I go all out, for myself: pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, onions and red peppers. Everyone eats something different, and thats fine. Thats the point of pizza, in fact: theres a good deal of variety here, tons of good options. Its easy to get the impression that there are no limits; if the pantry is well-stocked, you could ask for anything, and individualize...
