    I posted a similar thread about more modern films, and while I've seen almost all of them, virtually every response so far is "little" or "none". I thought it might be interesting to contrast a similar list from the Golden Age of Hollywood. Here it is: 1. The Ten Commandments 2. Lady and the Tramp 3. Peter Pan 4. Cinderella 5. Ben-Hur 6. Sleeping Beauty 7. The Bridge on the River Kwai 8. Around the World in 80 Days 9. Rear Window 10. The Greast Show on Earth 11. The Robe 12. Giant 13. From Here to Eternity 14. White...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., November 21, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — While the U.S. Senate continues to lag behind in confirming judicial nominations, President Donald Trump keeps his campaign promises by offering candidates for the U.S. Supreme Court that pro-lifers say are outstanding. On Friday, the Trump administration announced five new candidates for the Supreme Court, considered the “short list” of 25 possible high court justices. “These five judges are exceptionally qualified and any one of them would make an outstanding Supreme Court justice,” Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser said. “President Trump set a high standard with Justice Neil Gorsuch and...

    In the age of Donald Trump, we are all desperately searching for a competent replacement. In the age of Trump, Democrats and even some Republicans are all desperately looking for who will challenge Donald Trump. After researching electoral trends in presidential elections and the candidates themselves, I've picked 10 Democrats who could be strong challengers to Donald Trump in the 2020 election. They are listed in order of my preferences, and I even included some extra candidates since I am expecting the Democratic Primary debate stage in 2020 to be as crowded as the Republican Primary debate stage in 2016....

    Chick-fil-A, the fast food chicken chain with Christian values, is the No. 1 fast food chain in the nation. Even though the restaurant is closed on Sundays when most of its competitors are open, Chick-fil-A still manages to generate more revenue than its competitors, Business Insider reported Thursday. "To determine the most popular fast-food chain in each state, Foursquare looked at which chains received the most visits on average per location in every state based on the total number of visits to each chain divided by the number of locations in that state," Business Insider noted. Many have speculated that...

    The far left site Salon recently published a list of 25 conservatives who are “actually worth following” on Twitter. If you scroll through their list however, it quickly becomes apparent that it’s a “who’s who” of noted Trump haters on the right. My colleague Fuzzy Slippers wrote about it in a post: Leftist Outlet Salon Publishes “25 Conservatives Worth Following On Twitter” I have decided to take this a step further and compile a new list. Some of the people on my list like Trump and some don’t but they’re all right leaning people with great Twitter feeds. I made...

    'Something posing as objective data is actually rigged'! Conservative authors long have charged the New York Times with skewing its best-seller list against them, but now, citing the Times’ low ranking of Dinesh D’Souza’s latest best-seller, a major publisher is severing its ties with the “paper of record.” Regnery, pointing to Nielsen BookScan’s figures, based on actual sales through major retailers, contends the Times is rigging its list, ranking D’Souza’s “The Big Lie: Exposing the Nazi Roots of the American Left” below books with half as many sales. “There’s been a lot of talk about the New York Times being...

    Chick-fil-A, an American fast-food chain open for business a meagre six days a week, has retained the crown for most revenue per restaurant in the US, according to the latest report released by QSR magazine.

    Top 10 Oregon counties for gonorrhea Updated July 15, 2017 Posted July 11, 2017 A gonorrhea epidemic has hit Oregon amid public health concerns that the disease is becoming immune to standard treatment. Since 2012, cases have nearly tripled statewide, affecting just about every part of Oregon, including rural counties where infections have been traditionally low. Officials in some counties have become so concerned that they’ve launched public awareness campaigns, with ads on dating sites, Facebook and Google. In others, specialists have gone door-to-door, trying to track down infected people and their partners to get them treated. “We came to...

    The 2017 College Football Season kicks off on Saturday, Aug. 26, with six games.

While the Associated Press preseason rankings have yet to be released, there is a strong possibility that Alabama and Florida State will both be ranked somewhere within the top three.
