Ray Lopez said.The statue was found burned near 69th Street and Wolcott, authorities said."What an absolute disgraceful act of vandalism," Lopez wrote on Facebook along with an image of the...

    What would the world do without PETA, who always tackles the important issues? Leading up to the Los Angeles 2028 Olympics, the radical anti-humans at PETA now advocate for "silent fireworks" because traditional fireworks scar dogs emotionally. According to LA Weekly, they "want to see silent fireworks, or possibly even a Summer Games without fireworks at all, so that animals aren't traumatized by the simulation of artillery." "We have seen success with silent fireworks," says PETA's associate director of online marketing, Kate Tuggle. "Silent fireworks are generally more colorful."

    Daily Caller ^ | July 3, 2017 | Eric Owens
    America's doctors are warning that the use of sparklers on the Fourth of July is just too darn dangerous for your children. To avoid the risk of injury, you should give your kids bubbles, glow sticks and pom-poms to play with this Independence Day. Those things are safer and almost just as fun. Sparkler injuries lead to 1,900 emergency visits each year in the United States (pop.: 321.4 million), according to Providence, Rhode Island NBC affiliate WJAR. "They're actually not so benign," Dina Burstein of the Injury Prevention Center at Rhode Island Hospital told WJAR. "And I think what people...

    The youngest son of U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, Hillary Clintons 2016 running mate, was one of six people arrested Saturday after counter-protesters disrupted a rally in support of President Donald Trump at the Minnesota State Capitol.

Counter-protesters clashed with Trump supporters in the Capitol rotunda after they disrupted the proceedings with air horns, whistles and chants. At one point, someone set off a smoke bomb.

Staffers were going to put on a two-minute show over the Hudson River after the results come in on Tuesday, but the proposal has been canned, TMZ reportedon Monday. The campaign called the Coast Guard last week to tell them the event was off, three days after the New York Post reported it was planning the bash - although the cancellation was secret until Monday.

    Every year, more and more fireworks bans are being phased in. Fireworks to me, trigger the emotion of men fighting and dieing in the distance for freedom. It is the sound of rifle retorts, cannons, mortars, and people's homes being set on fire by the British. The push for firework bans seems to be more in the spirit of stamping this out rather than safety.

    CHICAGO (WCMH/MEDIA GENERAL) A nurse from Chicago got a rude awakening Thursday, a few hours after a man blew off his hand with a firecracker.

A few hours later, Steigert said she let her dog out in the yard. A few minutes later, the dog walked up to her with a hand in its mouth. This is like the first Fourth of July that I had off in three...

    Donald Trump issued a scathing condemnation of Wednesday's terror rampage in Tel Aviv. "I condemn, in the strongest possible terms, the outrageous terrorist shootings that took the lives of at least four innocent civilians and wounded at least twenty others in Tel Aviv yesterday," he wrote. "The Israeli security forces investigation is ongoing, but some facts have already emerged and they are grim. "Just as fast as the condolences arrive from the civilized world is the praise arising out of the uncivilized one. Hamas praised the attack, calling the attackers 'heroes.' Reports out of Hebron indicate that residents of...

    "...Some of the last fireworks of the night came when Cruz attacked Trump's supposedly "very, very liberal" policies."Flexibility is a good thing, but you shouldn't be flexible on core principles," Cruz said. "I like Donald. He is an amazing entertainer. But his policies for most of his life..have been very, very liberal."Cruz continued:For most of his life, he has described himself as very pro-choice and as a supporter of partial-birth abortion. Right now today as a candidate, he supports federal taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. I disagree with him on that."You are the single biggest liar," Trump shot back. "You...
