…is literally putting  her life  on the line to sing.   In the process,  Helly Luv makes Western pop icons look like complete wimps,  don’t you think?

Strange laws…

leave a comment »

If you think your state has some weird laws,  you’re correct,  but so does every other state.  This is a selective sample of  the strangest  from across the nation.

Oberlin snowflakes…

leave a comment »

The delicate little snowflakes who are students at Oberlin College want to abolish midterms  and any grades below C because they are too busy being activists to bother with studying.   Apparently they view college as a service and feel entitled to complain that the college is not making on-campus activism available to them and their studies are suffering because they have to drive as long as 40 minutes to engage in their preferred activities.

Do any of their parents still labor under the impression that their little darlings are actually being educated and equipped to deal with life in the real world?   If they are paying about 50 grand a year and don’t know what’s going on,  that may explain a lot…

What is it?

A lot of people would like to know what the  strange object  near the International Space Station is,  and what purpose it has.   Do you know, or care to hazard a guess?

Not sorry…

leave a comment »

 

James Martin offers a  unique perspective  on the bombing of Hiroshima because his uncle,  Maj. Tom Ferebee,  was the bombardier aboard the Enola Gay,  the B-29 that dropped the first atomic bomb.   Anyone who has a clear understanding of war knows that both the Japanese and the Americans would have suffered tremendous casualties if an invasion had been carried out.   The bomb caused tremendous destruction,  but it ultimately prevented further destruction and loss of life.

Neither Pres. Harry Truman,  nor any of the Enola Gay crew should have felt regret for their decisions and actions.   It remains to be seen if His Oneness can quiet his knee-jerk compulsion to apologize for America at every turn when he visits Hiroshima.   Anyone taking bets?

Model behavior…

with 2 comments

A lawsuit is  being filed  by models against some of the biggest agencies in  the world,  alleging fraud and abuse.   I can’t say I’m surprised by any of the charges,  because young,  ambitious people are easy to take advantage of,  and their parents are apparently naive enough to believe the agencies will properly care for their children.   A lot of them are the same people who believe the government will do the same for them and their children.
