    The ninety three year old lady finished her annual physical examination, the Doctor said, "You are in fine shape for your age, Mrs. Grier, but tell me: Do you still have intercourse?" "Just a minute, I'll have to ask my husband", she said. She stepped out into the crowded reception room and yelled out loud: "Bob, do we still have intercourse?" There was a complete hush - you could have heard a pin drop. Bob answered impatiently, "If I told you once, Irma, I've told you a hundred Times. What we have is... "Blue Cross!"

    FULL TITLE: 'Real men provide. Real women appreciate it': North Carolina residents plan protest over 'sexist' billboard paid for by a mystery organization Women are planning this weekend to protest a North Carolina billboard with a message they say is a slam on gender equality, according to media reports. A billboard on a highway between Winston-Salem and Greensboro reads, 'Real men provide. Real women appreciate it.' It's on Business 40, a heavily traveled commuter stretch of an offshoot of Interstate 40 that runs between the two cities. Winston-Salem boutique owner Molly Grace said that she sees the sign's message as...

    Hillary Clinton supporters continue lashing out at the protesters interrupting her rallies with the message that Bill Clinton is a rapist. During a rally in Las Vegas with the Carpenters Union, a man started shouting that Bill Clinton was a rapist, holding up a sign of the former president with the word “rape” on it. Immediately a group of male Clinton supporters chanting “Hillary! Hillary! Hillary!” tackled him to the ground, destroyed his sign and ripped his shirt, before he was escorted out of the rally. The fight was captured by a photojournalist for local TV news station KTNV.

    I’m old enough to remember the good old days when everyone was terribly concerned about Donald Trump rallies and how his supporters would probably go all nutcase on the world, turning violent and gunning down random passers by if they happened to feel like it. After all, what else would you expect? Thankfully, all of the forces opposed to Trump are far more civil, expressing their discontent with his candidacy in the form of strongly worded letters to the editor or prayer circles calling for peace. Take for example, the events outside of this meeting with fundraisers in Minneapolis. (The...

    MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Two days have passed since the private fundraiser held for Donald Trump at the Minneapolis Convention Center and stories are still trickling in about the events of the night. As Alpha News reported, Donald Trump never made a public appearance in Minneapolis but showed up to a quiet and private event at the Minneapolis Convention Center on Friday night. However, that did not stop protesters from showing up by the dozens to show their displeasure with the Republican-endorsed candidate. Trump supporters and donors were met with verbal and physical violence as they tried to enter and exit...

    Video;-) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ABh3tBFTMo Last week in San Jose, California, supporters of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump found themselves surrounded by violent far-left protesters, most of whom were apparently supporters of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders. Several Trump supporters were assaulted amid ugly scenes - but apparently they weren't the only ones "feeling the Bern." In fact, video footage from the day shows how at one point, several Bernie supporters apparently mistook each other for Trump fans, and promptly began a violent brawl - before realizing they were all on the same side. In a somewhat comical scene, as other Sanders supporters...

    US unions plan attack on Donald Trump in attempt to derail presidential bid Concerned labor group leaders are organizing ad campaigns and phone banks as Trump’s populist message on trade and jobs draws in union voters The prospect of a Donald Trump nomination has labor leaders scrambling to hold the line as the Republican frontrunner’s appeal to disaffected working-class voters threatens to upset the traditional political calculus. The majority of America’s almost 15 million unionized workers can be usually be relied upon to back the Democratic candidate in a presidential year, but leaders are concerned by Trump’s populist message on...

Previous decertification elections were deemed invalid, resulting in workers having to hold a fourth round.

The protests, which were planned by labor organizers for about 150 cities nationwide throughout Thursday, are part of a campaign called "Fight for $15."

According to the Hampton Police Division, the officer responded to the 1200 block of Pansy Street around 9 p.m. The person who called about the moped was walking with his unleashed dog toward the officer. Police said that’s when the dog aggressively charged at the officer, who feared for his safety and shot the dog once in the upper body. The medium-sized mixed breed dog was taken to a local animal hospital for treatment. The officer was not...

    ...Laborers (LIUNA) President Terry O'Sullivan, who endorsed the resolution, told the convention delegates that without changes to the way the ACA is implemented, there are likely to be "unintended consequences" that will hurt workers' health care coverage. AFT Secretary-Treasurer Lorretta Johnson said many AFT members, including para-professionals, adjunct college professors, nurses and public employees, have had their hours cut to under the 30-hour week threshold they must work before ACA requires employers to provide affordable, comprehensive health care coverage or pay a penalty. Trumka did tell the delegates that "the labor movement is engaged in ongoing dialogue with a number...

    AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka is proposing that the national labor union become partners with the Sierra Club and the NAACP, even accepting their ranks as members of the AFL-CIO. "What we've been doing the last 30 years hasn't worked real well," Trumka said on Capital Download. "We need to do things differently... None of us are big enough to be able to change the climate out there, whether it's economic, political or legislative. And all of us realize it takes all of us working together to get it done." Trumka has said of the labor movement, "We are in crisis."...

    Diplomacy: National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden seems to have taken Venezuela's asylum offer, an odd choice for a man supposedly motivated by a desire for transparency. He should prepare for life as a pawn. U.S. surveillance is "not something I am willing to live under," Snowden told the U.K. Guardian's Glenn Greenwald, in a story published Monday, condemning yet again the NSA, whose operations, he claims, motivated him to hack into its computers, steal U.S. secrets, leak them to the press, and then flee a $100,000-a-year job and a pole-dancing girlfriend on the island paradise of Hawaii for a...
