    Maine Gov.

"They care so little about our women and our children that they’re going to hire these barbarians who go and hit their wives and their kids and they’re gonna get a slap on the hand?

    The pop stars surprised the audience at Cyrus’ Staples Center show with a lip-lock reminiscent of Britney Spears and Madonna’s 2003 VMAs kiss. Katy Perry is still kissing girls and liking it, but maybe not as much as she used to. The "Dark Horse" singer was caught in a passionate lip lock with none other than Miley Cyrus during the 21-year-old singer's Los Angeles concert on Saturday night, but a YouTube video shows her pulling away from a full-on make-out session with Cyrus.

And would he be treated more respectfully if he were not Christian, and specifically, Muslim? Gene Simmons thinks so. “He’s got a religious passion, as well he should, we’re in America,” the KISS frontman told Radio.com earlier this week. ”He’s proud to be a Christian, what’s wrong with that? And yet, with sports media and pop culture media, they make fun of his religion. Really? In America? If he was wearing a burqa, they wouldn’t dare say anything [editor's note: only Muslim...

  • Obama, Suu Kyi And The Forbidden Kiss ("grave breach of custom")

    11/19/2012 2:07:02 PM PST · by Arthurio · 70 replies
    As Barack Obama appeared in the home of Myanmar pro-democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi in Yangon, the U.S. president planted a platonic, but very affectionate, kiss on her cheek (to which she appeared to slightly recoil in embarrassment). This act has surprisingly elicited little or no comment in the global press thus far – quite unusual since public displays of affection represent a grave breach of custom in virtually all Asian countries. Obama likely did not mean to offend his Burmese hosts, however, as a well-travelled man of the world, he must have known that a kiss – especially...

    JERUSALEM — Kiss’ Israeli-born singer-musician Gene Simmons is shouting out loud at the string of musicians who refuse to perform in his homeland. “They’re fools,” the legendary bassist told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday, on his first return to Israel since leaving the country as a child more than 50 years ago. Simmons described the visit as a “homecoming.” He offered a description of himself that might shock his legions of fans who know him as an American icon prone to spitting blood and sticking out his exceptionally long tongue: “I’m Israeli. I’m a stranger in America. I’m...

    We’ve all done it, or at least know someone who has. Animal lovers who kiss their pets — mouth to mouth. “Kisses” from mans’ best friend or a feline companion may seem loving and irresistible, but is it safe?

    LePage on NAACP: ‘Tell them to kiss my butt’By William P. Davis, BDN Staff Posted Jan. 14, 2011, at 12:59 p.m. SANFORD, Maine — Maine Gov. Paul LePage is once again attracting attention for his comments after he said to tell the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People to “kiss my butt.” While the remark was made jokingly, LePage was already under fire from the NAACP after LePage declined to attend any NAACP-hosted events on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. LePage responded in an interview with WCSH6 by saying, “There are only so many hours in a day,...

    I’ve never been a fan of KISS– it is just not my genre of music. However, I was sent this video from a friend and after watching it, it made me swell with pride and gratitude for Gene Simmons. I am the sister of a soldier in the 82nd Airborne Division and as such it took on special meaning to me. Take a moment and watch this amazing and exhilarating tribute that Simmons and KISS did for our brave men and women in uniform. This was filmed in Iraq at a USO tour of a US Marine base. What a...

    When I think of people well-suited to lead a crusade against declining public civility, somehow Whoopi Goldberg doesn't spring to mind. Yet there was The View co-host on Morning Joe today, promoting what Amazon describes as: "her new book of observations [that] takes a funny and excruciatingly honest look at how a loss of civility is messing with the quality of life for all of us." And sure enough, Whoopi engaged in a [seemingly endless] discussion with the MJ folks on the subject. Mika read a passage from the book in which Goldberg bemoaned the rise of "political incivility." Added...

    .... August 14, 1945 in New York City was a magical moment - a confluence of history, a place, and everyday people. Soldiers were returning home from an intense four years of fighting when President Truman announced Victory in Japan (VJ Day) - the end of the American involvement in World War II. In Times Square, the sailors paraded in joy for they had won! On the street, civilians came out to the streets from their shops, the hospitals, to savor this moment of victory. Then a sailor, caught up in the passion, kissed a surprised young nurse, who was...

    As November approaches, the beltway wonders if the Republicans will produce a new 'Contract with America.' How about this: adopt the Constitution as the platform. Aviation innovator Kelly Johnson reminded us all to KISS – “keep it simple, stupid.” Every American loves freedom, liberty, and the Constitution. Why come up with new packaging for the same brilliant ideas embedded in our founding document? No proposal the RNC develops can ever be as popular as the Constitution. Republicans, being supposed conservatives, have nothing left to conserve but the Constitution. We can't endorse the big government policies of the last 10 years...

    This might be a repost, but I think Gene Simmons shows just how great some of our entertainers can be. He does the whole Army, Air Force, Navy & Marine tribute. GREAT JOB
