    As a social studies assignment back in elementary school, Meghan Markle and her classmates watched some commercials to assess their messages. A commercial for Ivory Dishwashing Liquid really bothered Meghan...Meghan took matters into her own hands by writing a letter to the soap manufacturer. The company changed the commercial. What Meghan did landed her on the cable show ‘Nick News’ in 1993.
  • Vanity: Ideas for expressing support to police

    07/11/2016 4:58:40 AM PDT · by uscga77 · 35 replies
    Looking for good ideas on how to express support and appreciation to our police. As a chaplain for 10 years I have seen them work up close to defuse family problems, befriend youth, contribute to the community as coaches, take dangerous drivers off the streets, deal with gangs and take on the bad guys. I have seen how the last thing an officer wants to do is discharge his weapon or even unholster it. But he or she does want to go home to his family. So any suggestions out there...

    'Twas the night before Smithmas, and all through the temple, Not a cumelon was creeping, or a tapir, (for ex-emple!) The garments were hung out to dry in the air, But fortunately for us, we have two extra pairs. The children were stashed at Gramma's homestead, While Mom and Pop got dunked once again for the dead! And Mom in her veil, and I in my old bakers' cap, Had just about finished another endowment wrap! When beyond the temple grounds I heard a big clatter Even sprang from my seat to see about the chatter; To the pentagram window...
  • Barbara Walters Apologizes to Katy Perry: "If I Made You Feel at All Unhappy...I'm Sorry"

    When Katy Perry was chosen as one of Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2011, it should have been an honor. Instead, the "Dark Horse" singer was petrified that the esteemed journalist would discover her marriage to Russell Brand was on the rocks... I was just exhausted and stressed." "I'd prepped everyone that I was running late, but Barbara showed up at the original time anyway," the singer continues. "When I got there, I apologized immediately, but then she said to me, 'You know, I've only ever waited for one other person this long, and you know who that...

    "The following was written by Ben Stein and recited by him on CBS Sunday Morning Commentary. My confession: [Ben Stein] I don't like getting pushed around for being a Jew, and I don't think Christians like getting pushed around for being Christians. I think people who believe in God are sick and tired of getting pushed around, period. I have no idea where the concept came from, that America is an explicitly atheist country. I can't find it in the Constitution and I don't like it being shoved down my throat... Or maybe I can put it another way: where...

    Publication date: March 20, 2012 "The Gospel of Barack Hussein Obama According to Mark" is designed to initiate the reader into a meditation on what it means to be human, what it means to be a manifestation of God, and how Barack Obama is a unique and important manifestation of God’s desire for human flourishing.

    American Thinker ^ | April 19, 2012 | Rev. Michael Bresciani
    In America we elect presidents, we don't worship them. But the Weekly Standard blog offered a headline on April 17, 2012 that seemed to contradict this traditional practice. In a short piece by Daniel Halper the headline was "Michelle Obama: 'This President Has Brought Us Out of the Dark and Into the Light' If it were not a direct quote taken from Michelle Obama's rally speech at a campaign event in Nashville, Tennessee earlier the same day, we could only imagine that some virulent anti-Obama politico went too far and just made up a false and despiteful headline to hurt...

    All three of the liberal mainstream media morning shows (ABC, NBC, and CBS) were just having a collective orgasm this morning over President Obama killing a fly yesterday during an interview on CNBC. NewsBusters has compiled a video montage of this sickening slobbering over the man that ABC has sold out too. Wouldn't you have an orgasm too if you learned that your President is the karate kid?

    Feb 01, 2009 — The celebrations in honor of Charles Robert Darwin for his 200th birthday (Feb. 12) and the 150th anniversary of the publication of his influential book On the Origin of Species by Natural Selection (Nov. 29th) are well underway. It is hard to think of any other scientist who gets the kind of gushy adulation heaped on this one man. It borders on religious euphoria. Some examples:...

    Filmmaker Ron Howard was chatting in Maureen Dowd's living room, saying he didn't mind spending hours in the cold for the inauguration and that even his conservative brother had come to admire Barack Obama. Outside on the chilly Sunday night, Tom Hanks decided against venturing into the jam-packed row house, mock-announcing to a small crowd on the Georgetown street that the party was paralyzed: "No more hot dogs! The Chinese food never got here!" The country's big-name anchors, actors, commentators, news executives, producers, editors and scribes have been celebrating the quadrennial event -- and themselves -- at one glitzy gathering...

  • Big transition coming: a president who's hard to make fun of

    Writers for late-night television shows, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, have lamented recently that they would love to bust President-elect Barack Obama's chops more. But fear of a politically correct backlash and a lack of major stumbles to date on Obama's part make him a tough topic. Stand-up comedians, though, say Obama is fair game. ''Those TV writers have to worry about ratings. They don't like boos or groans from the audience. We thrive off of it,'' said Lisa Lampanelli, a comic famous for her no-topic-is-off-limits policy, and her obsession with...

    Priest offers festival-goers the chance to confess their green sinsForgotten to recycle any newspapers or tin cans recently? Feeling guilty because you neglected to carbon offset your flight to somewhere, anywhere, outside England this summer? The Roman Catholic Church is at hand with a new line in “green confessions” to help eco-sinners to find forgiveness. Dom Anthony Sutch, the Benedictine monk who resigned as head of Downside School to become a parish priest in Suffolk, will be at the county’s Waveney Greenpeace festival this weekend to hear eco-confessions in what is thought to be the first dedicated confessional booth of...
