    Like you need another reason to play with your pet…but here is a fun challenge that is taking social media by storm. It is surpassing the “what the fluff” challenge. The “snoot challenge” is simple but so much fun. Videos of pet owners worldwide are popping up with adorable pets putting their noses through the shapes their owners make with their hands. A little trick is to teach your pet the “touch” command or bribe them with a treat.

    Ok, I get it. I'm at risk. If we open up the country I might die. You know, I'll miss my wife, my children, and my grandchildren. I'll miss my other family. They're called FReepers. BUT HELLS BELLS, I've had my time. I don't want the future ruined for my children and my grandchildren, as well as the families of multiple millions of my precious fellow citizens. So please, President Trump, and all Governors, open it back up as fast as you safely can. God Bless America and MAGA!!!!!

The video has been shared more than 50 times and viewed by more than 2,000. Dozens of people have commented on it. Some call it disturbing, even stomach-turning.

    Palm Beach Police say a man who who drove a Ferrari into the Palm Beach Inlet last December did so because he claimed "Jesus told me to..." James Mucciaccio, 48, was removing items from his Ferrari while parked on a public dock Dec. 26 when an officer approached him, asking what he was doing. He told the officer that a friend of his told him to park on the dock so he could be picked up by boat. When the officer told him he couldn't park there, Mucciaccio apologized, and retreated to the vehicle to retrieve his driver's license. In...
  • ’48-Hour Challenge’ (disappear) poses danger for those who participate and the community

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A new social media challenge is gaining popularity among teens but not so much with police. Although teenagers might think the newest social media challenge is cool, the "48-Hour Challenge" only does two things: causes panic in parents and wastes valuable law enforcement resources. **SNIP** Lacy and others are very concerned about the latest challenge, where teens dare their friends to disappear for 48 hours with the goal that their name and/or picture will show up on social media. The missing teen gets points for each like, share and other viewer interactions. "We are going to...

    De Mattei: Dare, Monsignore! TWENTY-FIVE YEARS LATER... Twenty-five years ago, on 8 February 1994, the European Parliament voted on a resolution that invited the nations of Europe to promote and give legal protection to homosexuality. In his Angelus address on 20 February 1994, the Holy Father Pope John Paul II appealed to public opinion worldwide, affirming that “the legal approbation of active homosexuality is not morally admissible [...]. The Resolution of the European Parliament has called for the legitimization of a moral disorder.The Parliament has unduly given institutional value to deviant behaviors, which do not conform to God’s plan”....

    Thursday on ABC’s “The View,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg said if President Donald Trump supports waterboarding he should “try it.” After playing a clip of Trump saying “torture works,” Goldberg said, “Well I would like to say is —I would like you to try it.” She continued, “I think people who have actually been tortured, who are saying that this is not a good thing, you should listen to them because you have never been tortured and neither has Dick Cheney.”

    www.theverge.com ^ | Mar 3, 2018, 5:00pm EST | By Kaitlyn Tiffany
    The idea of ingesting a Tide Pod used to be a little bit funny. For example, when The New York Daily News printed a comment from Senator Chuck Schumer under a rudely ageist headline in September 2012. He had recently been informed that 40 children in New York City had eaten Tide Pods and received medical attention for eating Tide Pods in the preceding five months. And he said, mostly unprovoked, “I saw one on my staffer’s desk and I wanted to eat it.” It’s good in print and it’s better out loud. “I saw one on my staffer’s desk...

    The Thomas More Law Center filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of the Tennessee General Assembly and the State of Tennessee in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Tennessee on Monday challenging the federal refugee resettlement program for violating the state’s sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The lawsuit places Tennessee at the center of the national debate concerning the operation of the federal refugee resettlement program. President Trump will be holding a rally in Nashville on Wednesday to garner public support for his agenda. His revised Executive Order 13780 temporarily halting the federal...

    Some 25 colleges and universities – many of them public – have answered a call by professors at UCLA to use their regular class time to “teach, organize, and resist” what they view as the discriminatory political agenda of President-elect Donald Trump. Slated for Wednesday, January 18, the teach-in, dubbed #J18, is taking place between the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and Trump’s inauguration. The event’s planners say: Let it be known that on #J18 and beyond, universities, colleges, and high schools refused to bear silent witness to the politics of hate and fear; that in these times, these places...

    New York Police Department's Precinct 60 has pulled off a massive mannequin challenge with a holiday flare. The nearly three-minute video opts out of the traditional Rae Sremmurd's 'Black Beatles', which is typically used in the challenge. Instead, it plays the cheery song 'Easy Street' from the Walking Dead as the camera breezes through the precinct, revealing all kinds of mischief and holiday fun the officers are getting into. From new recruits to plain-clothed officers and high-ranking cops, it appears everyone took time out to participate in the video, which has been viewed more than 27,000 times.

    MSNBC’s resident Hillary Clinton super-fan, Andrea Mitchell, came across as particularly desperate Wednesday as she dedicated a segment of Andrea Mitchell Reports to dreaming of a possible recount in three key swing states. “Some Clinton supporters are trying to mount a campaign to ask for an audit in key states to see if a recount should be ordered,” she reported, “According to a group of election lawyers and computer scientists… there is quote, ‘Persuasive evidence that election results in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan may have been manipulated or hacked.’” The report Mitchell was staking her hopes and dreams on was...

    Full title: "Election results may have been hacked in three swing states Trump won, activists want Clinton to seek recount" __ Not so fast. A prominent group of election lawyers and computer scientists said presidential election results in three swing states that Donald Trump won may have been manipulated or hacked, and are pressing Hillary Clinton to seek a recount, according to a report. The group held a conference call last week with Clinton's top campaign lieutenants and lobbied for a challenge after finding something fishy in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, according to New York Magazine.

    Anybody remember Merrick Garland? Yeah… he was that guy nominated by Barack Obama to fill the empty Supreme Court seat. You may have thought that the issue was dead in the water, particularly with a Republican president on the way in, but there was actually a court case pending which sought to force the Senate to vote on his confirmation. As it turns out, that was met with the same level of success as Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid. (Washington Post) Merrick Garland’s last, long-shot chance at being confirmed as a Supreme Court justice has now vanished: A federal judge on...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 (UPI) The Internet cooled off last year with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Now, in the name of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) many are heating up by chowing down on hot peppers and chugging Tabasco sauce. The "Feel The Bern Challenge" asks Sanders supporters to make videos of themselves eating jalapeños, taking shots of hot sauce, or otherwise working up a sweat and then battle through the burn to explain why they support the Socialist senator from Vermont in his run for the Democratic nomination for president.

    The Supreme Court on Monday turned down a challenge to Wisconsin’s voter ID law, which it had previously kept from going into effect before November’s elections. The court’s decision not to review a federal appeals court ruling that upheld the law was a victory for Gov. Scott Walker (R) and perhaps other states that have tightened voting procedures to require additional identification.
