    (Cullowhee, NC) Preparations for the the upcoming August 21st solar eclipse are in high gear at Western Carolina University. The school is located within the zone of totality in the mountainous part of the state. Afternoon classes will be cancelled and festivities on the Central Plaza will include Native American moon dancers, performance art and the Tasty Tofu Taco Truck, locally known as T4. But there are some students who will be refusing the eclipse and have demanded the University provide a safe space for them during the event. So far three groups have separately approached University officials with concerns...

  • Pope repeats 'bridges not walls' after Trump travel ban

    Pope Francis repeated his appeal for people to build bridges of understanding, not walls as he marked a feast day of a Sudanese immigrant amid a global uproar over the Trump administrations attempts to impose a travel ban on seven mostly Muslim countries. The pope didnt refer to President Donald Trump in his comments. But at the end of his audience, he noted that Wednesday marked both the churchs day of reflection for young victims of human trafficking and coincidentally the feast day of St. Josephine Bakhita. She was a 19th-century Sudanese slave who, after migrating to Europe, became a...
  • Pope Francis Rips Capitalism, American Immigration Policy at Mexican Border

    Pope Francis, apparently desperate to reach out to the Catholic Church’s growing base in Latin America, spent the day slapping Americans in the face from across the US-Mexico border. In Ciudad Juarez, one of the most violent cities in the Western Hemisphere thanks to the drug cartels, the pope walked up a ramp covered in flowers toward a cross “erected… in memory of migrants who have perished trying to reach the United States just a stone’s throw away,” according to Reuters. Funny, he never did that while visiting Cuba to pay tribute to those who died attempting to escape that...
  • ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ is atheist, Communist propaganda

    The Christmas Eve showing of “It’s a Wonderful Life” may be intended to make you believe in the importance of even an ordinary person’s life, but underneath that, what are the film’s secret hidden messages, the ones that become apparent only after two or three eggnogs? Let’s mull over some of the wackier possibilities. It’s a salute to atheism. It’s “the least religious but most humanist film you could ever see,” said David Wilson in The Guardian, because it suggests people should fix their problems on Earth rather than waiting for God to help out. Regarding Jimmy Stewart’s character George...

    This ridicules interview with Feinstein and Lott is exactly why Democratic talk radio will get no where. People know when representatives are lying and obfuscating issues. Diane Feinsteins prefab talk to filter everything into a Democratic talking point during this Wallace interview is aggravating, off-point, and arrogant. She thinks the masses do not understand the issues or read the bills. Shes wrong! Thats where arrogance can lead to demise. Diane Feinstein is a perfect example. Here she talks so high and mighty about the law and Dick Cheney. I wonder how she can talk about the law when she has...
  • Am I the Only One who is sick and tired of "I'd Hit It"?

    I've never posted a straight Vanity before. But I am sick and tired of this good conservative, generally religious site being overrun by people posting "I'd hit it", whenever a picture of a good-looking girl is displayed. It's demeaning, it's immoral, and I guess I'm just a prude but announcing to the world that you'd like to have sex with a woman based on her picture, like she was some object, hardly seems like the appropriate attitude on a conservative political site. But rather than post in response to any particular person, I figured I'd just vent here where everybody...
  • At Correspondents Dinner: Brian Williams Belches 'Battle Hymn of the Republic'

    On Thursdays morning shows, all three networks seemed to take delight in showing "MC Rove" ham it up for Wednesday nights Radio & Television Correspondents Association dinner. None, however, showed the video footage of the distinguished Brian Williams, anchor of the "NBC Nightly News," burping the "Battle Hymn of the Republic." The Los Angeles Times, one media outlet that did report the event, covered it this way: For their first act, [comedians Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood] recruited NBC anchor Williams and Cheryl Gould, senior vice president of NBC News, to deliver the sound effects for a nonsensical skit about...
  • Is it OK to poke fun at Pope? Italians ask (instead of blowing things up and beheading people)

    Forget the bloated deficit, forget the fact that Italy's national airlines and train network may go bust; the hottest debate in the country now is whether it is politically correct to make the Pope the butt of comic satire. That was the question on most front pages of Italy's newspapers on Wednesday after the Roman Catholic officials reacted to a spate of Italian television and radio programmes poking fun at Pope Benedict. "The Vatican doesn't like satire," headlined Rome's La Repubblica. L'Unita, the newspaper of the largest party in the centre-left government, even put its banner headline -- "The Vatican...

    Mr. Wayne LaPierre Executive Vice President National Rifle Association 11250 Waples Mill Road Fairfax VA 22030-9400 Dear Mr. LaPierre: As an NRA member of many years, I was surprised and disturbed to learn that the NRA now has a Spanish language website ( I thought the NRA stood for patriotism and the defense of our nation and our way of life. Why, then, are you encouraging the balkanization of our citizens into English-speaking and Spanish-speaking camps? If people were born in the United States, surely they would have learned enough English to use the main NRA website by the time...

    Serious movement in D.C. and if I hadn't been there, I would not have believed it. For several months Joan Wire and her daughter have been trying to secure an appointment with a highly effective government official we'll simply call Mr. Washington. Joan Wire is the stalwart wife of Mike Wire. Mike is the storied "man on the bridge," the single most critical eyewitness in the saga of TWA Flight 800, the 747 that was inexplicably blown out of the sky on the night of July 17, 1996. The CIA built its notorious zoom-climb animation around Mike's position on...

    The economy's growth has never before been so driven by real estate. Now that engine is sputtering. Jiany Massad isn't quite ready to throw in the towel on his fledgling career as a Miami real-estate tycoon. But if the local housing market continues to head south, the 30-year-old real-estate broker is already making alternate plans. "I might restart my old business," he says of a home decorating company that specialized in high-end window treatments. "At least it's real-estate-related." With home sales down by nearly a third in Florida last quarter, thousands of those who hoped to cash in on the...
