    OXFORD, Miss. (FOX13) - If you are looking for a place to smoke on the Ole Miss campus, good luck with that. The new "No Smoking" policy has it covered and is being strictly enforced. Basically the policy reads you can't smoke anywhere on the Ole Miss campus. That includes the interior of all University buildings. As for the property or the grounds, you can't smoke on the sidewalks, parking lots, recreational areas, partially enclosed or open areas such as walkways, breezeways, patios, porches, gazebos, tents and bus shelters. As for University vehicles, you can't smoke in them, you can't...

    PUT YOUR CAR KEYS BESIDE YOUR BED AT NIGHT Tell your spouse, your children, your neighbors, your parents, your sisters, everyone you run across. Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies. This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start...

    If your kid has developed a sudden interest in your kitchen pantry, don't start looking up culinary schools just yet. He might not become the next Emeril Lagasse. Not unless Emeril is smoking apples these days... Have you overheard your kid asking someone on the phone if they've got spice? Sorry, dad. He's not making you a nice Thai curry. He's shopping for synthetic marijuana...
  • Conspiracy theory professor says Sandy Hook shooting may not have happened

    Daily Mail ^ | 1/8/13 | Daily Mail Reporter
    Outrageous claims made by a professor who specializes in conspiracy theories are set to provoke grieving family by saying that the Sandy Hook massacre may not have happened at all. James Tracy, a tenured history professor at Florida Atlantic University, wrote a lengthy post on his personal blog saying that the shooting that left 20 children and six teachers dead may not have happened the way that it is widely believed, if it happened at all. Backed solely by the erroneous early reports filed during the midst of the horrendous incident, Mr Tracy 's claim is preying on the confusion...

    After the fiscal cliff deal was done, imposing higher taxes this year on all those making $40,000 per year or more, three different Democrats took to three different Sunday shows to push for more taxation on the American people. First up was Democrat House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). She appeared on CBS’ Face the Nation and Bob Schieffer asked her if the “revenue side” of the fiscal cliff is complete. For Democrats, revenue means taxes. “No, no, it is not,” Pelosi replied. “I mean, the president had said originally he wanted $1.6 trillion in revenue. He took it down...
  • America Is Being Systematically Transformed Into A Totalitarian Society

    Right Side News ^ | January 7, 2013 | American Cream
    If someone were to ask you for an example of a “totalitarian society”, how would you respond?  Most Americans would probably think of horribly repressive regimes such as the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, Communist China, East Germany or North Korea, but the truth is that there is one society that has far more rules and regulations than any of those societies ever dreamed of having. In the United States today, our lives are governed by literally millions of laws, rules and regulations that govern even the smallest details of our lives, and more laws, rules and regulations are constantly being...

    The Blaze ^ | 1/8/13 | Erica Ritz
    A Democratic legislator in Iowa is startling citizens with his most recent proposal: ban the sale of semi-automatic weapons, and confiscate them from existing gun owners if need be. Here is an excerpt from Iowa’s Daily Times Herald, which conducted the interview with State Rep. Dan Muhlbauer: In an interview, a fiery Muhlbauer said it is time to act with “radical changes” on gun laws and other issues to protect schoolchildren from shooting sprees like the one last week in Newtown, Conn. “We cannot have big guns out here as far as the big guns that are out here, the...

    Last night the Brattleboro City Council voted to ban whatever it labels as an "assault weapon." Film of the meeting shows a lively exchange between outraged citizens and the toffy noses on the council. This despite there being no laws regarding firearms ownership or licensing in the State of Vermont. "Constitution of the State of Vermont: Article 16th. Right to bear arms; standing armies; military power subordinate to civil "That the people have a right to bear arms for the defence of themselves and the State - and as standing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they...

    Coach is Right ^ | 1/8/13 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    The hypocrites in the Republican Party of Florida are rolling out the snail mail appeals again “to get everyone back on board.” I sat for a week at the Congressman Allen West debacle in November to watch disappointed Bill Paterson, Chairman of the Republican Executive Committee in St. Lucie County, keep checking his phone calls and Emails. Are they coming? Are they on the way yet? As he said “no” over and over throughout the long sad week, I saw him shrinking from lack of support from the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) and the attorneys supposedly on their way...

    Terror Trends Bulletin ^ | 8 Jan 13 | Christopher Holton
    President Obama has selected one of the worst possible candidates imaginable to become Secretary of Defense. Chuck Hagel has a history of being weak on Jihad and terrorism, the greatest threat to American lives and national security today. Hagel’s nomination should become a “teaching moment.” Just because someone served honorably in the uniform of the United States military or has an “R” instead of a “D” after his name, does not automatically mean that the person is strong on national security policy. Chuck Hagel is as bad on the threat of Jihadist terrorism as anyone in America. Not only has...

  • Fox News Channel Ends 2012 With Top Ratings for 11th Straight Year

    While the arrival of 2013 rang in a happy new year, it also brought in happy ratings for the Fox News Channel, which continued to dominate the cable news channel race in total viewers and the Adult 24-54 demographic for the 11th consecutive year. According to a news release from FNC, Nielsen Media Research found that the network completed the previous 12 months with the top 11 programs in total viewers. Demonstrating the network's dominance is the fact that the evening audience for Fox News topped the ratings of CNN, MSNBC and CNN combined with an average of 2,071,000, up...

    Dianne Feinstein was closely involved in the Million Mom March scandal of 2000, in which this project of Handgun Control Inc. was exposed for using 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money for electioneering. As but one example, the group posted the following on its website: You stand by your guns, Mr. Delay. Come Mothers' Day, we mothers will stand together on the mall of Capitol Hill to remind your PRO-GUN House that on Election Day, the voters will stand by our children. It took the Million Mom March about three days to react to this exposure by admitting that it had lied to...

    Easily duped, millions of voters dutifully believed Barack Obama's and the Democrats' campaign rhetoric that they only wanted to raise taxes on millionaires and billionaires – out of “fairness”.   But, once re-election was in the bag, things changed.  Surprise! Instead of "protecting the middle class" as the campaign blather promised, Obama insisted on a 2 percent increase in the payroll tax as part of the final legislation.  That will mean significantly higher tax bills for every working family regardless of income level.  For someone making $50,000 per year, the government will be taking an additional $1,000 out of their paycheck. ...

    A communication professor known for conspiracy theories has stirred controversary at Florida Atlantic University with claims that last month's Newtown, Conn., school shootings did not happen as reported — or may not have happened at all. Moreover, James Tracy asserts in radio interviews and on his memoryholeblog.com. that trained "crisis actors" may have been employed by the Obama administration in an effort to shape public opinion in favor of the event's true purpose: gun control. "As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media...

    As radical progressives in Washington, D.C. and the bluest of the blue states plot gun control and confiscation in direct violation of Supreme Court decisions, U.S and state laws, and the plain meaning of state and federal constitutions, it is easy to feel isolated as a liberty-loving American. There are signs, though, that despite the illusion of Democratic unity being provided by the mainstream media, that many rank-and-file Democrats would abandon these radical few on the issue of guns. In fact, many already have.[snip]The thousands of new readers this site has picked up over the past two weeks don’t belong...

    t hasn’t been a great 24 hours for Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. The rookie captain wasn’t able to finish Sunday’s playoff loss to the Seahawks after his knee buckled midway through the fourth quarter. The Redskins were eliminated, 24-14 and questions of whether or not head coach Mike Shanahan should have pulled Griffin dominated sports pages and media Monday. And then Rob Parker re-emerged. Sunday morning, hours before the Redskins playoff game, the suspended ESPN host talked exclusively with WDIV-TV’s Devin Scillian on the station’s weekly community affairs program ‘Flashpoint.’ Parker said his ‘cornball brother’ comments were taken out...

    Since Ed and I have each written about the latest round of Obamacare-exacerbated premium hikes, let’s check in on Britain’s single-payer system, which many American liberals fetishize: An official inquiry into failings at [Stafford] hospital, where between 400 and 1,200 patients died needlessly due to a catalogue of failings and appalling standards of care, is due to be published later this month. The report is expected to blame managers who cut costs and reduced staffing levels in an attempt to hit "efficiency" targets and win foundation status. Before taking control of the health service, Sir David ran the health authority...
  • Do Tax Cuts “Starve the Beast”?

    Townhall.com ^ | January 8, 2013 | Daniel J. Mitchell
    There’s a debate among policy wonks about whether a no-tax-hike policy is an effective way of restraining the burden of government spending. At the risk of over-simplifying, the folks who support the “starve the beast” theory argue that there are political and/or economic limits to government borrowing, so if you don’t let politicians tax more, you indirectly impose a cap on total spending (outlays = tax revenue + borrowing limit). We’ll call this the STB approach, for obvious reasons.Critics of the theory, by contrast, say that a low-tax policy creates fiscal illusion by making government spending seem artificially cheap. After...

    A video disseminated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) should blow a giant hole in the fantasy the Obama administration refers to as their Muslim “outreach” initiative. Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi is shown in 2010 delivering an anti-Semitic diatribe, during which he referred to “the Zionists” as “bloodsuckers,” “warmongers,” and “the descendants of apes and pigs.” He also called for “military resistance within the land of Palestine,” further noting that the PLO “was created by the Zionist and American enemies.” The tape is a compilation of excerpts from two different interviews given by Morsi on March 20 and...
