  • Biker Thugs Converge On Arizona Mosque Armed Looking For War (No bias here!)

    05/30/2015 4:20:24 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 43 replies
    Recently, Texas has reclaimed its cherished position as the nation’s “epicenter of right wing-extremism” with a few specifically bizarre occurrences that epitomize exactly what “right-wing extremism” means. But now, the Texas-size extremism is spreading to Arizona and it includes Texas-style armed biker thugs, conspiracy theorists, and anti-Muslim sentiments that set Texas apart as right-wing extremist central. About a month ago anti-Muslim hate-freak Pamela Geller and her acolytes, none of whom comprehend that America is not a Christian theocracy, converged on Texas to insult and incite anger in the American Muslim community with a cartoon contest intended to mock the Muslim...

With the opening of Tomorrowland in 1955, Gurr shaped a vision of the future (1986 to be exact) that still feels out of reach. Six decades after Gurr began creating ride vehicles for the theme...

    American Thinker ^ | May 11, 2015 | Lloyd Marcus
    I love Pamela Geller. However, when Bill O'Reilly and conservative Laura Ingraham said it was foolish of Pam to insult over a billion Muslims by hosting a “Draw Muhammad” contest, I thought perhaps they were right. Muslims live under an Islamic legal system called sharia law, which prohibits drawing any image of their prophet, Muhammad. Rush Limbaugh sided with Pamela. Rush pointed out that while the mainstream media and pundits want us to be sensitive to this rule of sharia, that same media flaunts and promotes homosexual marriage, which offends Muslims. Muslims put homosexuals to death. My feisty part-Cherokee, mostly...

    Via Mediaite, this is a lame answer but not as lame as some commenters in Headlines are treating it, I think. They’re not backing away from the Pam Geller event because they’re afraid of being targeted by jihadis. These guys will be targeted forever, whether or not they continue to blaspheme Islam, and they know it. Jean-Baptiste Thoret, the magazine’s film critic and the man in the glasses here, told an audience a few days ago that the surviving cartoonist who drew the “Je suis Charlie” cover is now a de facto prisoner with constant armed protection even though he’s...

And although her music is not entirely my cup of tea, I've heard worse (plus she's actually a songwriter- I respect that). Alas, they might have guessed a bit light on the legs appraisal- seems to have become her trademark already, and no doubt more than a minor element of...

    This is the movie that has exploding heads -- one very prominent who's name you don't use on the same page with 'exploding'. Oh, and a lot of blood and gore. But ... The Kingsman is really well done. Highly recommended for Freepers. I will warn you though, there is one brief comment and one very brief flash of the female backside that marred an otherwise perfect gem of a movie. Those 3 seconds erased the panache that was built up for the first 4/5ths of the movie.

    I saw this movie a couple of days ago and am still reeling from its presentation. It is the story of a family torn apart by the Korean war and how they work from being dirt poor to successful. It is a story of a family losing and finding its loved ones. It has the sweetest scene I have seen in ANY movie, but it's not staged or recorded. It's a real recording from history, which has a tremendous effect on those watching. It really happened. This movie is worth watching
  • Can't Sing? Do It More Often

    If you've ever been told that you're "tone deaf" or "can't carry a tune," don't give up. New research out of Northwestern University suggests that singing accurately is not so much a talent as a learned skill that can decline over time if not used. The ability to sing on key may have more in common with the kind of practice that goes into playing an instrument than people realize, said lead researcher Steven Demorest, a professor of music education at Northwestern's Bienen School of Music. "No one expects a beginner on violin to sound good right away, it takes...

French detectives found five child porn photos on Coulibaly's laptop and 37 on Kouachi's PC. Kouachi's "favorites" folder included lurid pictures of young boys and girls involved in sexual acts with adults. "Just because Western culture declares relationships between adult men and pre-teens to be illicit doesn't make it so," Choudary complained.

Michelle Obama carried out an impressive education agenda that rivaled her husband's in many respects.

His new novel Soumission (Submission), will not be published until January 7 but has already triggered a flurry of accusations that he is pandering to the growing Islamophobia gripping France.

    Sony’s capitulation in the face of threats by unidentified sources, who are presumed to support the odious Kim dynasty, serves to confirm what most of us have known for some time. Namely, the extent of allowable political discourse in popular culture is inextricably linked to the willingness of the objects of political criticism to violently suppress that criticism. Or, at the very least, intimate the unpleasant nature of the response in store for those willing to offer a dissenting voice. An interview the iconic Indo-British author and apostate Salman Rushdie did with Irshad Manji several years ago is worth watching...

The revolvers are an eclectic mix of Smith & Wesson (or clones) and Colt (or clones) revolvers.  They appear to mostly...
