    A study released by the Thomson Reuters Foundation reveals that, for the first time, the United States has been named one of the top ten most dangerous countries for women. The mirth is entirely unintentional, even though it's hard to believe that someone isn't pulling the leg of the international community. The study asked 550 "women's experts" which countries are the "most dangerous for women and which country was worst in terms of health care, economic resources, cultural or traditional practices, sexual violence and harassment, non-sexual violence and human trafficking," Leading the list is India, with its rape gangs...

    Ten Things That Will Disappear In Our Lifetime 1. The Post Office Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills. 2. The Check Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with check by 2018. It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks....

    The most annoying word or phrase used in casual conversation this year? Whatever. According to the annual Marist Poll released Monday, for the ninth consecutive year, “whatever” takes the prize as the most irksome word, 33 percent of Americans say. Rounding out the top five were “fake news” (23 percent), “no offense, but” (20 percent), “literally” (11 percent) an “you know what I mean” (10 percent), according to the poll.

    By July 2016, according to the analysis site SimilarWeb, Matt Drudge’s link-aggregation site Drudge Report was the second-most-visited on the Internet in the United States. Over the course of the month — the month of the Republican and Democratic presidential conventions and the month of the leak of emails stolen from the Democratic National Committee — SimilarWeb estimates that Drudge had 1,472,220,000 page views. That’s 1.4 billion, the equivalent of 47 views of the Drudge Report every second of every minute that month. Being the second-most-visited site, incidentally, means that Drudge had more page views than Yahoo, Disney (including ABC...

    The challenge facing any political institution based on artifice lies in selling its delusions to the voting public. A glance at the record demonstrates that the American left has an outstanding record in bringing this off. Events of recent months show that it has not lost its touch. In 2014, a virtual avalanche of nonstop high-level governmental propaganda cascaded throughout the national media intended to snow-blind the average American voter.  Here is a compilation of the most outrageous claims of a 21st Century statist government: 1. The border is less porous than it’s been any time since the 1970s. --...

    Sometimes pro-choice activists say things that show they are completely out of touch with reality. On my website Clinicquotes I have a collection of quotes from pro-choicers that show a stunning lack of logic or an almost delusional set of opinions. Here are ten statements made by pro-choicers that might make you shake your head: “The majority of women who abort do so because they know that the unwelcome child, born of constraint or misfortune, will be wounded in some unacceptable way. As Artemis [Greek goddess of hunting] might kill a wounded animal rather than allow it to limp along...

    If you attend a church regularly, you’ve probably noticed the phenomenon. A guest shows up for a worship service, but he or she never returns. It is, unfortunately, a common issue in many churches. I did a Twitter poll to ask these first-time guests why they chose not to return to a particular church. While some of the responses were anticipated, I admit being a bit surprised with some of them. Though my poll is not scientific, it is nevertheless fascinating. Here are the top ten responses in order of frequency. 1.Having a stand up and greet one another time...

    Manufacturing jobs in the U.S. appear to be coming back—if ever so slightly. Several American firms, including Caterpillar, GE and Ford, have announced they're shifting some manufacturing operations back to the United States, mainly because of increasing production and energy costs overseas. And since January of 2010, the United States has added 520,000 manufacturing jobs, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are currently 12 million manufacturing jobs on record in the United States. But the U.S. is clearly in catch-up mode.

    (Newser) – The new Nielsen/E-Poll survey of the most disliked athletes in America has the not-so-surprising name of Lance Armstrong at the top of the list, reports Forbes. More surprising is that Notre Dame star and soon-to-be-NFL'er Manti Te'o tied Armstrong with a measly 15% approval rating. Even if he was a hoax victim, Teo's fake girlfriend saga has taken a toll on his image. Worst three: After Armstrong and Te'o comes Tiger Woods, with a 19% appeal rating. It hasn't budged much since his scandal.Middle of pack: Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler (21%), the Lakers' Metta World Peace (21%),...

    SNIPPET: "Social media is no longer simply a fun way to share updates on the harmless idiosyncrasies of our lives. It can undermine national security, and there ought to be a more robust discussion between the Bay Area technology world and Washington on what to do about it. Cyber-terrorism, especially the potential for electronic tampering with U.S. industrial or military installations, is a paramount national security threat that Washington is working to forestall. We're all working to protect our accounts from hackers. But the cyber-threat getting far less public attention involves the social media networks we use every day and the...

    The Huffington Post, ever eager to curry favor with anti-American pundits and racists posing as free-thinkers, has published a screed by Marc Lamont Hill, who is a black professor at Georgetown University, titled “The 15 Most Overrated White People.” Keep in mind that this is a man who not only praised convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu Jamal, but published Jamal’s writings, and also was accused of supporting Fidel Castro and Khalid Muhammed. So who are some of the people on Hill’s list? Christopher Columbus, described as “an immoral treasure hunter” and a “vicious conquistador.” Elvis Presley: a “cheap facsimile of Little...
