  • James Bevel publicized on satirical site

    Uncyclopedia ^ | March 1, 2012 | BlueStateBlues
    Although uncyclopedia is a satirical site, this page on James Bevel, which is featured on its main page today, looks like it contains a great deal of information on the civil rights movement leader whom I've had an interest in for several years. Some historians claim James Bevel was Dr. Martin Luther King's equal in the 1960s movement, and if that's true (and I suspect it is) then that fact has been largely ignored in the public media and even in histories of the period. Although Bevel was another minister convicted of incest as an older man (what is it...

    My brother-in-law is an avid war history reader, but says he can't find a non-liberal history of the Vietnam War. Do you know of one? Which are the best, any suggestions would help. Thanks, and appreciated.

    DrudgeReport | October 24, 2009 | Drudge link
    Cell phones cause brain tumors, according to the newest banner headline on the DrudgeReport. The story it's linked to explains how a new study, soon to be published, will provide the data needed to prove this long-rumored assertion. The comments alrady on the story-link include one from a blogger claiming much more.

    Woken up at 6 a.m. to be told that He had just won the Cannabis Cup, and as shocked as everyone else at the news, United States President Barack Obama was humble in his words to the press. "I knew there was something special about this White House lawn," the seedmaster said, "With over two centuries of well cared for soil, I wanted to test my own special blend." Replacing the White House Rose Garden with what Obama told his family were "African-American Sunflowers", the recently harvested crop took this years Cup hands down and over easy. "I am humbled,"...
  • Very Few People Realize Obama WAS the Fifth Beatle

    Very few realize that Barack Obama, born "Standing up and already walking" on the March from Selma to Montgomery in 1964, matured early and actually played with The Beatles during their second American tour. Voted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1985, Obama's failed but "Oh so close" courtship of John Lennon's girlfriend, Yoko Ono, was the real cause of the breakup of the Fab Five. Obama stopped playing the guitar and sax at that point, and decided to organize a community or two.

    The luckiest man and best all around swimmer, Barack Obama, today was seen in bed with that hot French first lady and Kucinich's wife, who were all "getting busy" (as Obama was quoted) under the watchful eye of Michelle Obama, His Nib's wife. "I don't know how this happened, and I am humbled," Obama said, "but I will do my best to keep this happening, for myself and for the American people."

  • Is Congress trying to take DHEA off store shelves?

    Is Congress trying to take the supplement DHEA off of store shelves, and make it prescription only? They tried to do this in 2007, and I've heard that a bill is present in Congress again, but my research isn't finding a definitive answer. And, if so, does anyone know the status of the bill and if it's likely to pass or be killed in committee?

    (If someone can get this to Gov. Sanford, thank you. Please add to it.) Dear Governor Sanford, You have the chance of a lifetime. When true love emerges in a life, when a soul-mate returns that knowledge, your life has began anew. To put aside preconceptions of what you "should be" to sacrifice what you are sorely requires too hard a price. The route seems simple. Your long time companion and wife and you are in a situation which will probably never heal. Your love for her and the children will live on. Yet your true love, Ms. Chapur, if...

    Chris Matthews "Hardball" | 6/9/09 | Self, Chris Matthew Show
    My take entirely, but it sounded like Joe Scarborough strongly hinted at a presidential run in 2012 while just talking to Chris Matthews on Hardball. Matthews kept pushing him on a run for Governor in Florida and Scarborough pushed him off. Not large enough, he seemed to say. Holding up his book Scarborough said "These pillars here, they're in Washington not Florida". Christopher Buckley says Scarborough would make a good president, and Scarborough is pushing that quote.

    Chris Matthews used a gotcha question about evolution to ambush a GOPer off his game yesterday, and gloated about it today. Now here's a way conservative reporters can get prominent Dem. leaders and other liberals to cross a line, hem and haw, or look stupid: "Sir or Madam, are you an ape? Are you a great ape? Answer this question directly, yes or no."

  • Civil Rights Leader James Bevel Dies

    December 20, 2008
    The Post reported that '60s Civil Rights leader James Bevel died yesterday. In April he was convicted of incest and sentenced to prison, but apparantly got out because he had terminal cancer. Historian David Garrow said in the article that Bevel "was the most influential of Dr. King's aides". Seems to have been a major figure, and underreported (I've never heard of him).
