    This is still as appalling as when it happened, nearly 6 years ago. And no one in our Government has been held accountable.

    Nancy Sinatra Sr., the former wife of Frank Sinatra and mother of his three children, has died. She was 101. According to a tweet posted by Sinatra’s daughter Nancy, she died Friday. “My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101. She was a blessing and the light of my life. Godspeed, Momma. Thank you for everything,” Nancy wrote. The cause and location of death was not released. Sinatra, then Nancy Barbato, met Frank Sinatra in summer of 1934 in Long Branch, N.J. and they were married roughly five years later, on Feb. 4, 1939 at Our Lady of...
  • The time is long overdue to abolish the FDA.

    In the last several days I've had four different people in discussions about what is going on with cigar regulations. For whatever reason, this story has people talking. On the surface, that's great. The devastation that government regulation wreaks upon our society normally goes unnoticed. But my answer to solve the problem is one that nobody ever considers: Abolish the Food and Drug Administration. And I know what thoughts people have in their minds because I can see the look of surprise on their faces: "But what about our food?" "what about drug safety?" These and other questions just like...

    So my brother passed away at 59 after an 8 year battle with ALS. I hadn't seen him in over 2 years primarily based upon my beliefs and their opposition to those beliefs. I really didn't want my children around to be honest. That said he was still my brother and the friction wasn't with him at all. It was his kid and wife. I had commented about my beliefs on gay marriage and they were strongly opposed to my opposition. His whole family were strong Hillary supporters as well. In fact they moved to Atlanta from the land of...

    Funny how the British and liberals in general are concerned about Trump's "breach of protocol" and show little or no respect to the President of the United States nor to his aides. The protests in restaurants and at the homes of aides needs to be brought to an abrupt halt. The whole world knows that the disrespectful treatment of the President and his aides has been wrong. Strzok and his ilk know they're wrong and must be punished for direct attempts to overthrow rightful election results and must be put in prison. ALL of this poor behavior needs to be...

    Hi FRiends. I've been having a tough time over the past 18 months and was hoping for any advice, books, ideas, prayers - anything that could help me get through things because I'm hurting and feeling lost. My father, 71, has been diagnosed with a degenerative brain disease - Frontotemporal Dementia. He declined extremely rapidly at first but has now leveled off, mostly because there's not much left to lose. We went from seeing him over Labor Day 2016 and noticing something might be a little off to him having failing to tell the doctor the names of his kids,...
  • A white rattlesnake? Texas park posts photo of ‘cryptic’ viper known for potent bite.

    A white rattlesnake spotted Wednesday at a Texas park has produced a collective shudder across the country, after a photo of the snake was shared thousands of times on Facebook. It’s not an albino. Called a banded rock rattlesnake, the seldom seen species of pit viper has a spotty distribution in only three states along the Mexican border (Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas), and is known for having a powerful bite, say experts. The photo was posted Wednesday by The Wyler Aerial Tramway State Park in Texas, a 195-acre park within the Franklin Mountains. “We had this little friend come...

    SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) - The San Francisco Police Department arrested a serial rapist who allegedly disguised himself as a rideshare driver to prey upon victims. Authorities say Orlando Vilchez Lazo, 37, would wait outside local bars posing as a rideshare driver. The victims would enter Lazo's vehicle which they believed was the rideshare car they requested. Police say the victims were taken to other locations and sexually assaulted.

    Watch the number of prominent Never Trumpers grudgingly admitting Trump is doing a great job as President, made me think of something. Back in 1993 and 2009, I ran into quite a few Dem Blue collar voters who told me "What is going on? I did not vote for ANY of this" After the 2000 election, and prior to 09-11-01, and after 2004 you saw quite a few Bush voters say "what the?" about Bush. Have any of you run into anyone who says "Man I wish I had not voted for Trump?" I haven't and that is a 1st...

    A waitress required 15 stitches after she was attacked by four women she served Tuesday night at a Henry County Applebee’s. The women beat and punched the waitress and stabbed her in the forearm with a steak knife, McDonough police Maj. Kyle Helgerson told They allegedly took her tips before they skipped out on a $62.57 bill. Helgerson said it all started when the women were having dinner at the Industrial Boulevard location in McDonough, and one of the diners was sitting with her leg out in an aisle. “The waitress had brushed up against her leg,” Helgerson said....

    NY Post ^ | July 12, 2018 | Frank Chung,
    A Spanish public servant who skipped work for a decade without anyone noticing spent his free time running a male brothel and drawing erotic comics. Carles Recio, who was paid a €50,000 ($58,000) salary as an archives director in Valencia’s provincial government, would show up to the office every morning at 7:30 a.m. to clock in using the fingerprint scanner before heading home, only returning to the office at 3:30 p.m. to clock out. He kept up the routine for 10 years before colleagues began to raise suspicions. After Spanish newspaper El Mundo broke the story 18 months ago, Recio...
