  • Trump Wipes Out Cruz/Kasich Politically With Massive Victories (Vanity)

    The massive five state victories brought forth by Donald J. Trump last evening in Northeast states is astounding, one for the record books & history & two for the sustained strength of the Trump campaign.. Of course, Mr. Trump had much aid, assistance & direction from his two "unbalanced" opponents, Ted Cruz & John Kasich. Cruz had already sunk himself with his now infamous "New York Values" rants....which has killed him politically. a self-inflicted wound, and John Kasich, the "1 victory vs. 41 state losses", is going nowhere, fast...and the GOP POTUS Primary voters know it. And.....if I were Mr....

    The head cheerleader at one Massachusetts high school has been banned from cheering for the rest of the season after she tweeted an offensive comment about immigrants. Caley Godino, a senior at Revere High School in Revere, Massachusetts, was asked to watch the political debates leading up to the 2016 presidential election. Her teacher tweeted a comment about the low voter turnout for November's mayoral race, which prompted Caley to post a controversial tweet. "When only 10 percent of Revere votes for mayor cause the other 90 percent isn't legal," she reportedly tweeted. (Her profile is private.) As of 2010,...

She was ordered to pay the victim's family $10,500 as well. [Snip] "I will spend the rest of my life making this right," Shattuck said.

    Parents, don’t let your girls grow up to be cheerleaders. That’s just one lesson to be gleaned from a lawsuit filed by a cheerleader for the Oakland Raiders, a National Football League team, which alleges sub-minimum wage pay and other labor abuses. While professional cheerleading may seem glamorous, the cheerleaders allegedly earn barely enough to afford their own pom-poms. And, by the way, if they forget their pom-poms, the cheerleaders are reportedly socked with a fine.

It wasn’t easy for Megan Welter to go from Iraq veteran to NFL cheerleader, but the journey, she said, was worth it. “Our country has given us so many freedoms,” Welter told ABC15. “To be a part of fighting for that and maintaining that means a lot. It gives me goosebumps.” After graduating in 2007, Welter put her dance career on hold to “to take a job that was going to be meaningful, so I decided to join the Army."

    Perry's job creation record is formidable. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 32,000 new jobs were created in Texas in June, more than in any other state. Proving his policies were not a one-off, between June 2010 and June 2011 Texas added 220,000 new jobs, again more than the other "57 states," as President Obama might say. Perry is no "let's all get along" conservative. He wants to make a political difference, mentioning the revival of the 10th Amendment, which guarantees states' rights, as the way to reduce encroaching federal power: "America is not going to move forward until...

The cheer she objects to says "our backs ache, our skirts are too tight, we shake our booties from left to right."

    It is said that the first structure was built around A.D. 1000, by an ancient culture known as the Sinagua, also known as the Anasazi. The Sinagua's were obviously aware of its greatness, as this is where they built their homes and thrived off of the land. They were agriculturalists with trade connections that spanned hundreds of miles. They hunted game and gathered seeds and nuts to sustain themselves. By studying petroglyphs, artifacts, and comparatives of indigenous and Hopi groups, Archaeologists and anthropologists describe Sinagua rituals as being closely related to the flora and fauna of the area.

A Marine lieutenant calls his hometown station, saying he is coming home early from a combat tour of Iraq and Afghanistan and wants to surprise his wife -- with the cameras rolling. But because Lt. Denver Edick's wife is a cheerleader for the Washington Redskins, the easy score turned into a turf battle in which ABC, the network that pitched the idea, wound up barred from FedEx Field, while the team handed the ball to the NBC station in town, which happens to be its broadcast partner.

    With a portfolio that includes the middle class, stimulus spending, Iraq and politicking for endangered Democrats, Vice President Biden should be cutting a high profile. But the Obama administration's avuncular No. 2 has evolved -- after a sometimes bumpy first year -- into a classic guy-behind-the-guy. He stays busy but rarely makes news, and he's a trusted presidential confidant -- but not exactly in the inner circle.

    Earlier today, a few of us were talking about the satirically campy exchanges that occur all too often on Hannity's radio program. jaop As much as Willie Cunningham is loved, he should be flogged for introducing Hannity to the phrase "great American". On average, how many times per show will Hannity and a guest call each other "great Americans"? We counted 9 during the last hour of his show; pre-Christmas vacation. It's been a point of curiousity, besides .... good-golly, geez, it's such a swell topic for pals to talk about! Kinda of like a bad joke gone stale i.e....

    I was really, really hoping that Bush would start a big fight and pick Janice Rogers Brown for the supreme court nomination. He didn't. He picked a woman that he trusts and believes will represent a judicial constraint, conservative position. I am disappointed. But........ I am not going to trash the woman. I am not going to whine and cry that the Republican Party is doomed. I am not going to play into the hands of the Democrats who would love to see Republicans tear their own person down. {like the anti-war folks who trash our troops because they are...

    This article contains graphic and explicit language. Four Keller High School varsity cheerleaders put human feces on a pizza during a cheerleading camp, then returned it to the Fossil Ridge High School squad, claiming that Fossil Ridge had done the disgusting deed, district officials confirmed this week. Federal laws bar officials from discussing the girls' discipline, but such an incident would be considered "serious misconduct," district spokesman Jason Meyer said. Punishment could include sending the girls to the district's disciplinary alternative high school. They could also be removed from the cheerleading team, he said. The Fossil Ridge squad sent the...
