    “I’m clearly a textbook case of the silent majority of middle-aged men who won’t admit they’re starved for friendship, even if all signs point to the contrary,” wrote Billy Baker in his recent exploration of male loneliness in The Boston Globe. Perhaps one reason the piece made so many internet rounds is just how many people could relate: Last year Surgeon General Vivek Murthy warned that Americans are “facing an epidemic of loneliness and social isolation.” Though “I’m going to die alone” is the common grumble among single people, scientifically, it’s more like, “I’m going to die if I’m alone.”...
  • NBC Edits Out Alex Trebek Crediting Prayers With Helping His Cancer Battle

    In an interview with People magazine out Wednesday, Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek credited the prayers of millions of his fans for helping him in his fight against stage-four pancreatic cancer, now in “near remission.” Yet, while ABC’s World News Tonight touted Trebek’s praise, the CBS Evening News ignored that part of Trebek’s comments and NBC Nightly News edited it out of the quotes read and video clips they aired. Before we can examine what was missing, let’s look at what should have been reported. ABC anchor David Muir recalled how Trebek “vowed to fight it” by playing a soundbite of...

    During a Wednesday appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Katie Couric revealed that “a long time ago” she and the New Jersey politician went on a blind date together at a New York Giants game. “Wow, this just in!” she playfully exclaimed as the audience reacted with surprise. “He was really nice,” Couric, 62, said of Booker, 49. “Did we kiss?” she said. “No, we did not kiss.” Still, she had only kind things to say of Booker and Dawson, his newly confirmed girlfriend, whom Couric praised as “very cool” in part thanks to her political activism. “I really like...

    Every year, many thousands of American parents find that the son or daughter they sent to college has been transformed by college into a leftist. For left-wing parents, this may be a blessing, but for parents who are not leftist—not to mention conservative—it is often painfully jolting. It is jolting because their beloved child now holds America in contempt; prefers socialism to capitalism; regards all white people and police as racist; believes the Bible, Christianity, and Judaism are not only nonsense, but dangerous nonsense; no longer believes men and women are inherently different—or even that male and female objectively exist;...

    For the third straight year, the New England Patriots are in the Super Bowl. After beating the Kansas City Chiefs, 37-31, in overtime in the AFC Championship game Sunday, Tom Brady and Bill Belichick have the Patriots in position to win their second Super Bowl in three years and third in five years. The 2019 Super Bowl is also a rematch of the title game from the 2001-2002 season, when the Patriots beat the then-St. Louis Rams, 20-17. The AFC champion Patriots and the NFC champion Rams will face off in Super Bowl LIII on February 3 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium...
  • Type "Trump" to See What He's Up Against

    TYPE “TRUMP” TO SEE WHAT HE’S UP AGAINST I saw an article over the weekend that listed the various legal ways President Trump, family, businesses, and associates are being attacked. It’s mind boggling. If they didn’t find something on him, that should be the story, because with the mountains of laws in our modern society, you can find something on anyone—particularly, I’m sure, on the those who are going after Trump the hardest. So I searched for the article this morning, to include its link in this post. I couldn’t remember the title, or even any keywords in it, so...

    The State funerals of Senator, John McCain & FLOTUS, Barbara Bush were proper and dignified, but they were not responded to by large segments of the American people as they should have been. Again, my belief that at the end of life one "reaps, what one sows" and when the First family of POTUS, Donald J. Trump was not officially invited to either funeral, it diminished these two events drastically. However, the Bush family, with great dignity, sense of history and respect, on the passing of Ex-POTUS, George H.W. Bush recognized the need for all of the present and Ex-Presidents...

    I used to think I was just a regular person, but I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist. I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist. I am heterosexual, which now makes me a homophobe. I am mostly non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business. I was christened by my parents, which now labels me as an infidel. I am retired, which makes me useless. I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that...

    Seals are cute and fun to watch. They’re also a nuisance on Cape Cod, where tens of thousands of them are eating fish that might otherwise be caught by Cape fishermen and drawing great white sharks that are occasionally attacking swimmers at Cape beaches. A man was seriously injured by a great white shark August 15 in Truro, and another man was killed by a great white on September 15 in Wellfleet. These attacks, while sad, aren’t surprising. In fact, given the explosion of seals and sharks in recent years, it’s remarkable it has taken this long. More such attacks...

    “As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight when everything remains seemingly unchanged. And it is in such twilight that we all must be most aware of change in the air – however slight – lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.” ― Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas Yet another shooting. Yet another smear of ugliness, hatred and violence. Yet another ratcheting up of the calls for the government to clamp down on the citizenry by imposing more costly security measures without any real benefit, more militarized police, more...

He had been staying at the center, with only brief breaks to workout at home and attend business meetings, ever since. Affleck previously entered...

  • Brain Study Finds People Actually Get Dumber During A Heat Wave

    BOSTON, Mass. (CBS Local) – With many states dealing with record-high temperatures and massive heat waves, many people are probably sick of summer already. A new study says that your brain may hate the heat more than you do. Researchers at Harvard University have discovered that a person’s brain works 13 percent slower when it has to operate in extreme heat. According to their report in PLOS Medicine, scientists studied 44 college students living in Boston during a 2016 heat wave. That July heat wave was reportedly one of the hottest in the city’s history. 22 of the students lived...
  • Another Day of Electronic Warfare on Truth & the People

    As the world seems to become more chaotic and everyone wants to be the leader, nothing is right. Verbal attacks on key politicians and the loss of jobs by those who for years held positions and lived in corruption is taking its toll. Trump accused of mental competence, Peoples Politician Trey Gowdy stepping down, and truth being attacked at all levels. As for myself, I’m learning about what makes up the planet in which I live and those who strive to make it a better place, and those who only wish to enslave and destroy for greed and self gain....

    Farting, breaking wind, cutting the cheese, or gas. The English language has numerous words for flatulence and this is even before we devolve into the subcategories that make up the genre. Whatever you call it, farting is a taboo act, but it is also a source of fascination. It’s not for nothing that there is a popular children’s book series called Fart Squad or that the preview of the most recent installment of the Alvin and the Chipmunks dynasty led with the punchline, “Sorry, pizza toots.” Today farting is something for which we perfunctorily ask forgiveness, but in the past...

    A motorcycle police officer stops a driver for shooting through a red light. The driver is a real jerk, steps out of his car and comes striding toward the officer, demanding to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo! So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The motorist instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry, sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicitly offensive terms. The tirade goes on and on without the officer saying anything. When the officer finishes writing the ticket he puts an "AH" in the lower right corner of the...

    President Trump's son sounded off on the current state of the Democratic party on Wednesday during a FOX News appearance with Sean Hannity. In discussing Democratic opposition to President Trump, the 45th president's son told Hannity he has "never seen hatred like this." "To me, they're not even people," Eric Trump told the conservative host. "It's so, so sad. Morality is just gone. Morals have flown out the window." "You see the Democratic Party — they're imploding," the Trump son continued. "They're imploding. They're imploding. They have no message!" The executive vice president of the Trump Organization went on to...
