    Tribune Star ^ | 9/25/2016 | David Hughes
    Anti-war activist, author and podcast host Cindy Sheehan is probably best known for pitching a tent near then-President George W. Bush’s summer house in Texas in 2005 as she continued to request meetings with Bush about the death of her son during the Iraq War. Her son, U.S. Army Specialist Casey Sheehan, was killed by enemy action near Baghdad in April 2004. Cindy Sheehan, who lives in Vacaville, Calif., was honored Saturday night with the 2016 Eugene V. Debs Award during a ceremony inside the Sycamore Banquet Center on the Indiana State University campus. For those not familiar with Debs,...

    OKLAHOMA CITY — A New Jersey woman who was arrested during a 2014 protest of a satanic “Black Mass” has sued Oklahoma City and police a month after her municipal convictions were thrown out. Joan Bell, a longtime activist who said she has been arrested hundreds of times, claims that her civil rights were violated when she was wrongfully arrested. Bell, 68, was arrested during the protest after she refused to cease kneeling while saying the rosary on a landing at the top of the north steps of the Civic Center Music Hall. She said she attended the Sept. 21,...

    PolitiCulture ^ | 9/27/16 | Brown
    If you watched the debate last night, you noticed that Hillary Clinton seemed to be looking down quite a bit, and a closer look at the video may reveal why. One thing that didn’t go unnoticed was that Hillary seemed to know the questions to the answers before they were even asked. It was almost as if they were leaked to her campaign so she could prepare or she had someone feeding her information in real-time. She was busted with an ear piece at the first presidential forum, so it would have been hard for her to pull that off...

    We don’t want to be dramatic, but NASA just ruined our lives. For the first time in 3,000 years, they’ve decided to update the astrological signs. This means that the majority of us are about to experience a total identity crisis. Apparently, these changes are due to the fact that the constellations are not in the same position in the sky that they once were, and the star signs are about a month off now, as a result. To further confuse things, there is now a new, 13th sign, called Ophiuchus, which those born between November 29 and December 17...

    Trump and Clinton debated each other for the first time last night. Here’s how I score the night. Clinton won on points. She had more command of the details and the cleaner answers. Trump did a lot of interrupting and he was defensive. If this were a college debate competition, Clinton would be declared the winner. I call that victory on the 2D chess board. But voters don’t care about facts and debating style. They care about how they feel. So let’s talk about that. For starters, Trump and Clinton both seemed “presidential” enough. That mattered more for Trump. We...

    ROSEBURG, Ore. — Chris Mintz finished his six-minute deployment broken yet unbowed. He had been shot five times and was bleeding out, thousands of miles from the nearest battlefield. Being wounded was a real possibility when Mintz enlisted as an Army infantryman, but taking fire in rural Oregon wasn’t quite what he pictured. He joined in 2004, between two vicious battles in Fallujah while an insurgency simmered in Afghanistan. He could have gone into water purification or finance or any number of jobs. But choosing combat arms in wartime takes a certain kind of soldier with a certain something to...

Stunned and shocked, and without a car, he convinced someone he knew to drive him from Indiana to Detroit. It was a risky proposition. The man had a suspended driver’s license, but Ross begged him. They were speeding down an Ohio highway when, sure enough, they were pulled over by the state highway patrol. Ross also had an outstanding misdemeanor warrant. But instead of going to jail, he ended up being driven more than...

    I watched the debate, and felt it was unlikely to move the needle in any direction. Contrary to what idiots on TV are saying, I thought the first segment was Trump's weakest. Mainly because she nailed him on the tax returns. He had no good answer there, and it showed. He did get more irate in the second two, but he landed solid blows. Law and order. He mentioned the thousands dead in black locales, and she says everything is fine and vibrant? What was she thinking? The third section was close to a tie, but I think Trump won...

One scenario is one or more persons in the audience will then cause a serious commotion, rushing the stage or setting off fireworks, resulting in "both" candidates having to be quickly escorted off the stage by SS agents.

Landing in Canada on Saturday on a weeklong official visit with parents Prince William and Kate Middleton, George, holding his father's hand, ignored Trudeau when he squatted down to the toddler's level to offer a high-five variation, the low-five. Trudeau then switched his palm for a high-five and subsequently offered a handshake, both of which were seemingly rebuffed, creating an awkward moment on the airport...

There was a fight on the Carnival Glory last week. Passengers allege that one person said something "out of line"...
