    An Iraq war veteran in Michigan canceled his order for a cake when he discovered the bakery’s owners were Muslim, one of the owners told Fox 17 West Michigan. Zeinab Mohamed, who co-owns the Sweetcakez bakery in Grand Rapids with her husband, Javon Borst, said the wife of the buyer sent a message to them that read: "Hey actually we're going to order our cake somewhere else my husband just found out your Muslim. And I'm not against it but he is because he was in Iraq fighting for our country against your people. He even changed his new doctor...

    While planning the lunar landings, Nasa had a decision to make: What route would they use to reach the Moon? It was one of many that needed to be made, but little did they know then, it would have an important effect of the survival of the ill-fated Apollo 13 crew. This Sunday, 17 April, marks the safe return of James Lovell, “Jack” Swigert and Fred Haise after almost 88 tense hours on board their critically wounded craft thanks to that stroke of luck. The drama started unfolding at almost 56 hours Ground Elapsed Time (GET), meaning it was the...

    Police say the homicide of a 34-year-old woman on Grand Rapids Community College's campus was a random act of violence that occurred after the suspect tried to befriend the victim. Marcus Lamar Bivens, 19, of Grand Rapids, was arrested Sunday and is held on a count of open murder. He is expected to be arraigned Tuesday. "We are still looking into all evidence as to what was behind the actual killing itself," Dixon said, regarding a possible motive. "We do believe that this was a random act of violence."

    A disabled man living in subsidized housing is suing his Grand Rapids apartment complex, saying he is being wrongfully evicted because jugs of urine set on his seventh-floor balcony leaked, generating complaints from a ground-floor tenant. The man, who is obese and can't reach the bathroom in time, routinely urinates in jugs and sets them on the balcony of Grandview Apartments on Bridge Street NW, according to the lawsuit filed this week in federal court. . . . Hamblin's 34-year-old son has offered to help with housekeeping, but was banned from setting foot on complex grounds due to a 2010...

    Most homeowners regard their home as their castle and private domain. But some Grand Rapids residents with homes in historic districts may have cause to wonder, given the experience of Nancy Wilson, who says the city has put her in a debtor's prison. First, officials slapped Wilson with a fine for not getting her three-story house painted in time. Then, after the work was partially completed, regulators turned around and charged her with a misdemeanor. “I don’t think it is the job of the neighborhood code compliance people to cause harm for anyone who lives in the city. They are...

    Michigan’s economy performed poorly during the 2000s, only to be hit hard by the recession near the end of the decade. While growth in the current decade has been tepid in Southeast Michigan, the Grand Rapids area is a boomtown. The region fully recovered from the recession and has grown beyond its peak in 2000. There are more people employed in the area — composed of Kent, Barry, Montcalm and Ottawa counties — and those workers are both producing and earning more. There are 542,600 jobs in the area, 19.8 percent more than its 2009 recessionary trough and 4 percent...

    I saw a huge waterfall pouring over a beautiful rock formation and the water looked like liquid glass so pure and transparent you could see all the rocks behind it . All around the base of the waterfall were people and they were enjoying the refreshing spray and droplets covering them as a beautiful misty spray and the droplets just seemed to hang in the air effortlessly and the sound of the waterfalls was the roar of His Voice. As I looked over where the water goes over the falls I saw Jesus with his bare feet standing in the...

    New York real-estate developer Donald Trump has dominated the Republican nomination campaign for months -- but his strongest support doesn't come from any of the organized blocs in the Republican party. He polls well among conservative and evangelical voters, to be sure, running competitively against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) with these voters. He draws considerable support, also, from self-identified "liberal"or "moderate" Republicans. In fact, in the latest Quinnipiac poll, his biggest polling margin against his GOP rivals was among moderate and liberal Republicans. But his strongest support comes from Republicans who used to be Democrats, according to new polling analysis...

    American Thinker ^ | 12/24/15 | Jeannie DeAngelis
    **SNIP** But then again, the truth is that, especially when dealing with a "brazen genius" like Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton could use a pantsuit leg up. That's why being a perpetually-offended woman might be a powerful weapon in 2016. In fact, a shrewd calculation may be the reason Hillary conveniently forgot to mention that her husband, based solely on his reputation as an adulterous fornicator, earned a starring role in an ISIS propaganda/recruitment video. Instead, the woman who habitually gets her video stories confused insisted at the last Democratic debate that anti-Muslim videos starring Donald Trump were...

    Turned Monica Lewinsky 'Into A Humidor' [VIDEO] Political commentator Kurt Schlichter argued that with Hillary Clinton's enabling, Bill Clinton was able to turn "the Oval Office into a frat house and his intern into a humidor." Tuesday on CNN Newsroom hosted by CNN anchor Don Lemon, guests Terra Grant and Schlicher were discussing Donald Trump's comment that Barack Obama "schlonged" Hillary Clinton in 2008. When Schlichter kept bringing up Bill past sexual history, Lemon ended the interview early. Lemon asked Schlichter if it was appropriate for Trump to suggest Obama "schlonged" Hillary and Schlichter explained, "Don, it's going to take...

    Just how much did Ben Zimmer chuckle while writing this "schlong" analysis for Politico? Well, no matter how much he was laughing, he did manage to write in a serious tone on the subject...which made it come off even funnier than was probably intended. At first Zimmer slams Donald Trump for his use of the term "schlonged" but ends up exonerating him when other examples of the slang word being used as a synonym for "defeat" were found.
