  • Why The US Map Could Look Radically Different In 15 Years

    The United States has been consistently gobbling up new territory for the last 241 years. Ever since the founders declared the 13 colonies independent from Britain, the US has acquired its 50 states through clever land deals and plunder. The current US map does not even include the 16 territories and hundreds of military bases spread throughout the world. With its extreme propensity for growth, the US has undoubtedly amassed the largest empire known to man. However, the US empire has hit its peak and is now unraveling quickly. For more detail on why this is the case, you can...

    I think this was around 1986 (or so)... when the nice rap was being taken over by the (future gansta rap) crap we see today.. This isn't bout rap, or any specific genre, but by users/people taking advantage of the 1st amendment. I think many here know what I am talking about.. but I also think many here are too young to remember before rap was even invented :p (not just about rap, but the degradation of not only music, but social norms in general).

    Hollywood, CA September 29, 2016 – Street artists in Hollywood put posters up over night, culture jamming Apples iconic logo with the silhouette of Donald J.

The Apple logo, and the slogan (written by Steve Jobs) is one of the most identified brands on the planet.The posters were photographed in Hollywood at Sunset & Highland, LaBrea & 4th Street, Melrose & Spaulding and adorning the Old Bernie Sanders Headquarters at Johnnies Diner at the corner of Wilshire and Fairfax.

    Psychologists have long said that men tend to be better than women at spatial tasks, like mentally picturing and manipulating shapes. Hundreds of studies spanning several decades have shown that on average, men score higher on tests asking them to rotate objects in their heads. This is one of the few persistent and significant differences scientists have discovered between the brains of men and women. The pattern also aligns, perhaps suspiciously, with stereotypes about men being better at reading maps or parking -- or putting together flat-pack furniture. That last cliche might actually be true. Researchers at the University of...

    The White House said Monday that taxpayers paid for first lady Michelle Obama and President Obama to fly on separate planes to Los Angeles on the same day last week because they were traveling to “different airports” on slightly different schedules. “They flew into different airports,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “It’s also my understanding that the first lady actually left to get back to Washington, D.C., before the president even arrived in California.” Mr. Obama flew to Los Angeles International airport last Thursday on Air Force One, arriving around 4 p.m. local time for an appearance on

    Zero Hedge ^ | 7/27/11 | Tyler Durden
    Yes, indeed it is. While everyone and their grandmother is foaming at the mouth how both republicans and democrats hiked the debt ceiling for umpteen times over the past x years, the truth is that never before has the ratio of the proposed debt ceiling to the tax receipt ratio been as high as it is now. At nearly 6 times, this means that the top line (forget bottom line) cash inflows into the Treasury are 6 times lower than the current debt ceiling. And following the upcoming $2.5 trillion this number will surge to almost 8 times. So please...
  • Why does Obama have 2 different birth doctors? Buffalo News, Snopes, Hawaii disagree on attending

    The White House release of a copy of Barack Obama's long-form Hawaian birth certificate continues to raise more questions – since the name of the president's attending physician differs from previous published reports. The name on the purported birth certificate lists Dr. David Sinclair as the obstetrician who delivered Obama in 1961. But reports by the Buffalo News and supposedly confirmed by the hoaxbusting website indicate the name of Obama's birth physician was Dr. Rodney T. West. Here is an image of what the White House claims is Obama's official, long-form birth certificate, with Sinclair's name listed as the...

    Contributing to the impression of shifting sands in his official biography, two newspaper articles from 1990 – apparently based on interviews with Barack Obama – reported that the future president left Hawaii for Indonesia when he was 2 years old, not 6 years old, as he relates in his autobiography. On May 3, 1990, the Associated Press widely published a feature story on Obama highlighting him as the first African-American named as president of the Harvard Law review. "Obama moved to Southeast Asia at age 2 when his parents divorced and his mother married an Indonesian," the Associated Press reported....

    I thought I'd be domestic for a bit and explore state parks in Montana. Obviously it's a state famous for mountains and glaciers and geysers (well, most of those are in Wyoming, but still), so I wondered what would be at the "state park" level. Found some next stuff. Each picture comes with a link to the page on the Montana state parks Web site. 1. Giant Springs State Park 2. Medicine Rocks State Park (click this one for full-size 3. Lewis and Clark Caverns (Montana's first state park) A very good image of the caverns (I can't share this...

    Coalition forces in Afghanistan are going to have to adopt a "dramatically different" strategy to ensure success, the top US general there says. In his first speech since submitting a report calling for more troops, Gen Stanley McChrystal also said the operation had been "under-resourced". The success of the military operation could not be taken for granted in the face of a growing insurgency, he said. Meanwhile, a Nato strike in Helmand has killed at least six civilians. Women and children are believed to be among the dead. Nato has said it will investigate the incident. It said it had...

    There once was a woebegone situation that begged for change. The natives were restless, tired of the same old thing year after year after year. President after president failed to inspire, and failed even more miserably to produce the results the people wanted. Everyone agreed it was time to go in a different direction, and to find a different kind of president. And along came just such a man. When he appeared on television, talking about the right way to do things, he was a star. He had never been an executive decision-maker at any level, but he had been...
