    (U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas, wants those aiming to pick up certain guns, ammo and accessories to wait seven business days.) A group of House Democrats is backing a measure to delay sales of semi-automatic firearms, suppressors, armor piercing ammo and large capacity magazines. Introduced by Texas Democrat Sheila Jackson Lee, H.R. 4268 would mandate that both licensed dealers and individuals wait seven days after buying targeted guns, ammunition and accessories before transferring the item. The Houston-area Congresswoman debuted the bill two days after the shooting at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas that claimed the...

    Edwardian Promenade ^ | 12-05-2013 | Camille Hadley Jones
    No one in the Edwardian era made any bones about the fact that marriage was a woman’s sole career, and that she owed it to herself and to the family that had so far supported her, to get on with it. Where a girl was concerned, it was the duty of everyone–her mother, her mother’s friends, her chaperone and her bill-settling father–to help her achieve this ambition.Once a young girl turned eighteen, her childhood was essentially over. The moment she put up her hair and lengthened her skirts, she was a woman. A coddled and protected woman, but a woman...

    The wife of prominent ABC news anchor George Stephanopoulos, Ali Wentworth, has claimed the couple will leave the country should Donald Trump become president of the United States. Talking to The Hollywood Reporter, Wentworth said that “If Trump wins, we’ll start looking at real estate in Sydney, Australia. No crime, no guns.” The couple’s plans pour further scorn over Stephanopoulos’s supposed “objectivity” given his role as a prominent interviewer for ABC, having interviewed Donald Trump twice over the election cycle. Stephanopoulos and his wife’s connections to Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party are well documented, with Stephanopoulos having previously worked...

    Monday on Yahoo Global News ardent “Never Trump” activist and conservative blogger Erick Erickson said he can not vote for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Erickson said, “If the Republican Party wants to go in his direction, I guess I’m not a Republican anymore. I never signed a party oath.” ... I think Hillary Clinton is unfit for the office as well, but she certainly does have the qualifications.” He added he would not vote for Clinton as well, adding, “I find them both appalling.”

    Apparently Rick Perry's performance at the first GOP debate last week wasn't enough to keep donors writing checks. Perry, who debated in the 5 p.m. Fox News debate after missing the primetime cutoff, has apparently stopped paying campaign staffers in key early states and at campaign headquarters. From the Washington Post:Former Texas governor Rick Perry's presidential campaign is no longer paying its staff because fundraising has dried up, while his cash-flush allied super PAC is preparing to expand its political operation to compensate for the campaign's shortcomings, campaign and super PAC officials and other Republicans familiar with the operation...

    Scott Walker has insisted he will be able to “compete anywhere in the country” as a candidate for president — but, at a private event in St. Louis on Sunday, Walker said he does not plan to compete in Florida, contradicting his own public assertions that he would not skip that primary. During a fundraiser at the St. Louis home of Rex Sinquefield, Missouri’s most active Republican donor, Walker reasoned that it “doesn't make a ton of sense for him to pour cash into Florida” with Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio in the race, said one person who was present...

    TONTITOWN, AR, July 16, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- TV's biggest family is officially off the air.Two months after TLC suspended "19 Kids and Counting," the network has formally cancelled its biggest show. "TLC and the Duggar family have decided to not move forward with '19 Kids and Counting,'" the channel told The Associated Press.

  • Will FOX Pull the Plug on American Idol?

    04/18/2015 5:35:10 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 14 replies
    American Idol ratings hit a series low last week, dropping to a 1.4 in the desirable 18-49 demographic. Even when head to head competition with The Voice was no longer a threat (the rival show aired a special results show at 8 pm) the numbers stayed flat this week. Once the highly rated FOX show, Empire left the Wednesday night lineup, the show began to falter. The Wrap notes, however, that Idol is still ahead of the final season of the cancelled X Factor. Heading into this week the two regular editions of “Idol” were averaging a combined 2.9 rating...

    Making controversial statements is nothing new for me. Neither is the reaction that usually follows. But perhaps no other issue causes as much discussion, debate, and condemnation from others than when I present my position on the issue of homosexuality. As a known Christian, I have been told that I MUST think a certain way and that I MUST believe a certain way regarding not only people who are gay, but regarding their entire lifestyle as well.

    The National Labor College, an education venture for working adults supported by the AFL-CIO, will close next year because of financial difficulties school officials attribute in part to the construction of a conference center several years ago on the Silver Spring campus. The college, with 599 online students this fall, announced Wednesday that its board of trustees voted this week to accept a closure plan. Word of the impending shutdown had been circulating since at least mid-November. “We’re all very, very sad,” said Paula E. Peinovich, the college’s president. The college will offer courses through the spring semester and have...
