    GETTING OLDER A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office. "Is it true," she wanted to know, "that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?" "'Yes, I'm afraid so,"' the doctor told her. There was a moment of silence before the senior lady replied, "I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked 'NO REFILLS'.." *********************** An older gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery and he insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to get the anesthesia, he asked...

    Iran's defense minister on Saturday blasted Secretary of State John Kerry's for what he called his “foolish” accusations that Tehran is "destabilizing" the Middle East, AFP reports. If the United States seeks "stability" it should "leave the region and stop supporting terrorists," Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said, quoted by the website of state television. "If John Kerry thought about these subjects, he would no longer utter nonsense and foolish words," added the Iranian minister. The comments came after Kerry, speaking on a visit to Bahrain on Thursday, condemned "the destabilizing actions of Iran," noting that the United States was taking...

    TPM ^ | 12/11/15 | Caithlin MacNeil
    One day after a report that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned Donald Trump's "judgement" in a private event, Trump called out Cruz for criticizing him behind close doors but refraining from negative comments in public. Looks like @tedcruz is getting ready to attack. I am leading by so much he must. I hope so, he will fall like all others. Will be easy! .@tedcruz should not make statements behind closed doors to his bosses, he should bring them out into the open - more fun that way! Cruz has so far refrained from bashing Trump in public. After Trump announced...

    From last night's speech to the New England Police Benevolent Association, which voted to endorse him. Rarely can you tell whether a new Trump policy idea was gamed out beforehand or just something he came up with on the fly while in front of a mic, and this is no exception. His advisor, Dan Scavino, tweeted it out after Trump said it, though, so if it wasn't official campaign policy before, I guess it is now. Is it worth critiquing this? Krauthammer’s ready to give up on arguing against Trump policies, partly because they're all obviously political panders rather than...
  • Lithuanian Bartender Sets Man's Face on Fire While Making Cocktail

    07/25/2014 7:06:12 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 19 replies
    A bartender in Lithuania was making a cocktail called "Flaming Lamborghini" - but instead of the drink, she set a patron's face on fire. This footage on LiveLeak shows the dangers of drinking a dangerous cocktail of flames and liquor, with a customer suffering severe facial burns. The incident happened on July 11, according to online reports. The bartender accidentally sets the man on fire at 0:35. Some of the customers near the man helped put out the flames, and the bartender is seen handing the man a towel. According to the video description, none of the staff was able...
  • Conservative Atlanta Pastor to deliver benediction at Obama inauguration

    President Barack Obama’s second inauguration will be book-ended with prayers from the widow of slain civil rights activist Medgar Evers and the conservative pastor of an Atlanta mega-church. The Rev. Louie Giglio, whose Passion City Church just hosted a youth-oriented event that attracted 60,000 to the Georgia Dome, will offer the benediction – a duty assigned four years ago to the Rev. Joe Lowery. The invocation will be offered by Myrlie Evers-Williams, whose husband – a field director for the NAACP – was gunned down in 1963 in the driveway of his Jackson, Miss., home. Myrlie Evers-Williams served as chairman...

    Obama’s Promoting Homosexuality was Foolish, Faulty, Final, and Fatal! Don Boys, Ph.D. President Obama committed political suicide when he climbed in bed with the homosexual crowd (figuratively, I hope). It doesn’t matter whether he was following an orchestrated script or not. The results are the same. American liberal politicians have been sniffing around this issue for many years, but now it is official, and that could be dangerous for Obama and America. God is not pleased and it is a dangerous thing to displease a sovereign, holy God! Look at Sodom! It is trite but true that God destroyed Sodom...

    Fools and Their ConsequencesIsaac Newton is known as a great mind of science who has influenced the minds of men in many disciplines. What many do not realize is he was also a great influence in the realm of theology. Mr. Newton while not flawless in the religious realm has created some excellent commentary upon God’s truth from the Bible. Mr. Newton is well noted for his observation and recording of three laws of motion. It is the third of these from which application to this final article regarding fools will be drawn.Newton’s Third Law of Motion: To every action...

    Fools and Their Knowledge“The wise man built his house upon the Rock. The wise man built his house upon the Rock. The wise…”. It is quite likely any person reading the above words knows they are from one of the first Sunday school songs a child learns. They are based on the Biblical passage Matthew 7:24-27. In a nutshell, a wise man builds the house of his life on the Rock foundation which is Christ. The foolish man builds his house upon a foundation of sand which is the foundation of man and is not stable. When the storms of...

    Fools and their AngerTom is driving down the road. He has his radio playing light jazz and he is moving along with the speed of the end of the day traffic. His mind is paying attention to the surroundings about him, but he is also thinking about the weekend soon to come. He is really looking forward to getting home to his wife and children. Presently, he hears loud long blasts of a car horn next to him. When he turns his head to look he observes another man all red faced, eyes bulging, apparently screaming at the top of...

    Fools and their Speech“Ihay, I maay a oolfay nday I aysay Oolishfay ingsthay!” It sure would be nice if all people who were engaged in foolish actions or speech would automatically speak in only Pig Latin. Immediately, the choice of whether or not a man wanted to follow the lead of a fool would be obvious. Sometimes man is ignorant or deceived into foolish activities or speech, making himself guilty without informatively choosing foolishness. While still guilty of foolishness through participation, the individual would have most likely wanted to know what he was getting into beforehand. Unfortunately, foolishness is not...

    Fools and Their DisobedienceThis is the first article in a series of articles on fools. Some people may hear the word fool and think of a silly friend or comedian. However, most folks associate the word fool with a negative connotation. The Bible has much to say about fools and without hesitation it presents the foolish in a negative light. Why study fools? If the Bible frowns on the foolish, then it would behoove man to learn about fools so that they can avoid being one. The series to be embarked upon will examine foolishness in a number of categories:...

    Oh, now you've done it. See? You see what happens when you young liberal voters get so disgruntled and disillusioned that you drop all your party's newborn, hard-won ideas about Hope™ and Change™, without any patience, without really giving them sufficient time to mature, without understanding that hugely foreign, anti-American concept known as "the long view"? See what happens when you wallow in hollow disappointment, trudging all over your liberal arts campus and refusing to vote in a rather important mid-term election, all because your pet issues and nubile ego weren't immediately serviced by a mesmerizing guy named Barack Obama...

    American Thinker ^ | Sept 2, 2010 | Ed Lasky
    Christina Romer, the departing chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisors, was at a complete loss of words when it came to explaining the state of the economy when she appeared at her valedictory lunch before her returns to her teaching sinecure at Berkley. Dana Milbank of the Washington Post comments: She had no idea how bad the economic collapse would be. She still doesn't understand exactly why it was so bad. The response to the collapse was inadequate. And she doesn't have much of an idea about how to fix things. What she did have was a binder...

    Conservative web journalists and radio talk show hosts are beside themselves at the stupidity of the Obama administration, and rightly so. We, too, bewail the squander of America's wealth, the weakening of her military, the traitorous, despicable mishandling of the CIA, the celebration of moral wickedness, the encroachment of constitutional liberties, the blind commitment to environmental myths, and so much more. While Bush conducted a war on terrorism (though he didn't really take off the gloves), Obama appears to be conducting a war on the war on terrorism.

    LONDON - The failure of North Korea to meet the "deadline" for "fessing up" to everything in its nuclear inventory should have come as no shock to anyone. The only surprise is that US diplomats and (Bush Administration) spokespeople persisted in saying North Korean disablement of its nuclear program was "on track" and all that was needed to complete this "phase" of the deal was for the North to produce that list. Now the all-patient US State Department is saying all is fine, "They should not sacrifice completeness and accuracy for speed," said nuclear envoy Christopher Hill as he prepared...
