    The conservative provocateur who calls himself Sabo took aim at Hollywood days before the Academy Awards. With a nod to the Oscar-nominated Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, conservative street artist Sabo has hijacked three billboards in Hollywood to attack the entertainment industry for allegedly shielding pedophiles. Reminiscent of the signage in the Martin McDonagh film, which is up for seven Oscars including best picture, with black text on a field of red, three consecutive billboards in Hollywood sprang up Wednesday, each calling out the industry. “And the Oscar for biggest pedophile goes to…” reads one sign. Another says, “We all...

    A “Kill the NRA” billboard was visible Monday on I-65 in Louisville, Kentucky. The message was spelled out in large, white spray-painted letters on a black billboard bearing the tag, “Resist 45.” The Courier Journal reports that photos come in the wake of the Florida school shooting that has given rise to intense criticism of the NRA. The NRA was made aware of the billboard and responded with a Facebook post: The Courier Journal reports that other billboards tagged “Resist 45” have popped around Louisville in recent months, leveling some degree of criticism toward President Trump. One billboard urged viewers...

    Who wants to participate in a music play-off bracket-type poll for best songs of the '70s? 3 years ago I ran a "tournament" to pick the best songs of the '80s, based first on Billboard rankings, so only the best of the best are included! You can view how this played out here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/3249477/posts That's what I want to do for the '70s. (Wouldn't mind doing it for other decades, either!)
  • Abortion Clinic Launches Billboard Ad Campaign Saying Abortion is a Good "Parenting Decision"

    Killing a baby in the womb is a good parenting decision. It's a blessing. It's normal. It's a family value. These essentially are the messages of a new billboard campaign by Ohio's largest abortion business, Preterm. The ads celebrate and normalize abortion, leaving out the part about the baby's death. The AP reports Preterm recently paid for 16 billboards in the Cleveland area that display the words "Abortion is ..." followed by different phrases, such as "a parenting decision," "a blessing," "liberty" and "your right." Other phrases include "life-saving," "necessary" and "a second chance." None of the billboards explain what...

  • BILLBOARD - SNOPES lies again - "Mostly False” Indiana billboard is actually 100% true.

    SNOPES CARRIES WATER FOR MUHAMMAD “Mostly False” Indiana billboard is actually 100% true. ​The self-proclaimed fact-checker Snopes.com has been harshly criticized for its Leftist bias, and as is so often the case, a tilt to the Left also means a willingness to foster ignorance and complacency about the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat. After a billboard went up in Indiana pointing out six unsavory aspects of the life of Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, Snopes labeled the billboard’s charges “Mostly False” – but that label applies far more accurately to the Snopes report than to the billboard. Snopes’...

    The atheist Freedom from Religion Foundation has taken its anti-faith message to Denver, the site of the Democratic National Convention. Their "Imagine No Religion" sign demands Denver residents and Democratic Party officials preparing for the convention to envision an America without people who believe in God. In response, Bishop Council Nedd, chairman of the In God We Trust has asked Senator Barack Obama to condemn the sign's message. The Freedom from Religion Foundation President, Dan Barker, has called Christianity "and enemy to humanity" and "the antithesis of freedom." In his letter to Senator Obama Nedd states, "By placing their billboard...
