    (CNN) — Mike Tyson isn't shy about his love for marijuana. On Monday's episode of his podcast, aptly named "Hotboxin' with Mike Tyson," the former heavyweight champion shared just how much he spends on the psychoactive drug. "What do we smoke a month?" he asked his co-host, former NFL player turned marijuana advocate Eben Britton. "Is it $40,000 a month?" "We smoke 10 tons of weed at the ranch a month," Britton said, referencing Tyson Ranch, the boxer's forthcoming 40-acre marijuana farm and "resort." "Is that crazy?" Tyson asked, though it seemed he already knew the answer. His guest, rapper...

    **money quote**“How many more witnesses do we need to commit suicide by two bullets to the back of the head just before they about to testify against the Clinton’s before we start to say ‘Hey, something here sure smells fishy?'” Mike Tyson is currently testing out his one man live show in Las Vegas called Undisputed Truth 2 to small crowds, since Las Vegas is apparently pretty quiet right now. It doesn’t have anything to do with Tyson, but all to do with that horrendous mass shooting at the Mandalay Bay earlier this year, which has seemingly gone through a...

Here’s a little something for you little people.Now days it’s just another excuse to go shopping to pick up some more stuff on sale that you don’t need, don’t really want and will eventually end up in a box somewhere.Anyway, I hope you enjoyed your Christmas Eve and Christmas gatherings. I know the Wons did. They pre-recorded their annual Christmas greeting to the little people while still in...

    Donald Trump has not lost his Mike Tyson vote, even after his controversial call to ban all Muslims from the United States. Tyson, who has been vocal of his support for Trump in the past and is a Muslim himself, told TMZ on Tuesday that the comments of a 'total and complete shutdown' on Muslim immigration to America have not changed his views. 'Anybody that was ever president of the United States offended some group of people or some groups of people were offended,' Tyson said 'He's still ahead in the polls and he deserves a chance.'

    While speaking to the nation during his Oval Office address Sunday night, President Barack Obama asked everyone to remember that 'Muslim Americans are our friends, neighbors and sports heroes'. Though the president failed to mention any specific athletes by name during his 13-minute address, President Obama's reference to Muslim-American sports heroes was a well-played remark. Americans must not take out their grievances with the fanatics on followers of Islam, he said. There have been a number of prominent athletes in some of America's most popular sports who were raised as Muslims or converted to Islam during the course of their...

    "Mark Twain said boxing is the only sport where a slave, if he's successful, can rub shoulders with royalty," says former heavyweight Mike Tyson, who once knocked out 19 opponents in a row. "Can you imagine that? Just by fighting another human being, he can meet a king, a prince, a queen, eat at the same table with them, be invited to the castle." Or in modern times, make $30 million in one fight, build your own castle, stock it with tigers, and still wake up every morning the pawn of powerful men who make money off your sweat. When...
  • Man has his nose bitten off in savage street brawl

    A man was left scrambling around on the pavement looking for a piece of his nose that had been bitten off in a street brawl. Brian Broughton was left with a disfigured face after being confronted by a group of men on Whitley Road, North Tyneside after returning from the gym. As he was knocked to the ground, the 23-year-old heard screams of ‘bite him’ and in his dazed state felt the grip of his attacker’s teeth around his nose. ‘It’s just sick – I can’t believe anyone would do that. Real men don’t bite people,’ he explained to ChronicleLive....

    Mike Tyson: ‘Dennis Rodman Is Guilty Of Treason’ January 10, 2014 3:09 PM PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It takes a lot to shock and outrage Mike Tyson. Sounds like a job for Dennis Rodman. As if Rodman’s recent trip to North Korea, for an exhibition game with several former NBA players, didn’t raise enough eyebrows, Rodman’s appearance on CNN with Chris Cuomo raised just about all of them. Rodman’s interview turned into an outburst, as he seemed to defend policies of North Korea while yelling at Cuomo. The other players that were along for the ride with Rodman sat silently and...

    The greatest tragedy that emerged from America's slavery experience, was that White slave masters preferred black male slaves who were very feminine, or who engaged in very feminine behavior, to serve as house slaves. This is where the perjorative term, "Uncle Tom", emerged in the black community to describe a black man who loves to suck up to white people. Whites have always seen such "Uncle Tom" blacks as "unthreatening" or "moderate", and preferred to hire them compared to the more conventional blacks. This sort of thinking persists to this day. In 2008, White Americans came across the "perfect black",...
