  • Danish Air Force F-16s scare Rudolf to death

    Saturday, October 01, 2005 - The Danish Air Force has paid 30,000 krones (about $4,800) in damages to a local Santa Claus after its F-16s scared his only reindeer to death, Danish television reported Friday. The incident occurred in February at the farm of Olavi Niikanoff, who fulfils traditional Christmas time work as a local Santa Claus. Niikanoff said his reindeer, Rudolph, was quietly grazing when two F-16s appeared out of nowhere and roared over the terrified animal. The reindeer died on the spot from a heart attack, a veterinarian said. The farmer demanded compensation from the Air Force. After...
  • 'PCRM Week': The Dairy Attack

    Unless you're among the bean-sprout-sized minority of Americans who describe themselves as "vegans" (vegetarians who also won't touch milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, or even a dollop of honey), you may have been alarmed by the publicity surrounding an article appearing last month in the journal Pediatrics. The anti-milk piece -- written by activists from the PETA-affiliated Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) -- concluded that feeding milk to children is unnecessary, and that there are better ways (kale, tofu, turnip greens, or spinach, for instance) for kids to get the calcium they need. In reaching this result, PCRM relied on...

    STOCKHOLM, Sweden - It's healthy and tasty, for those with expensive tastes. Farmers in northern Sweden are milking moose and making cheese, which they sell for a lot of dough — nearly $500 a pound. The buyers include upscale hotels and restaurants in Sweden. AP Photo Christer Johansson and his wife, Ulla, started their 59-acre dairy farm "Moose House" seven years ago in Bjursholm, 404 miles north of the capital, Stockholm. They claim it is the only moose dairy farm in Europe. The Johanssons currently have 14 moose in the fields but only three — "Gullan," "Haelga" and "Juna" —...

    Uncle Tom's Cabin by Gail Jarvis by Gail Jarvis People who disagree with me often claim that my historical views do not conform with "modern" interpretations. For my enlightenment, they recommend "modern" history books, books written after the 1960s. However, one correspondent took the opposite approach insisting that I needed to read a book from the past, Uncle Tom's Cabin. Of course, like most of you, I read the book years ago when I was younger. And, although I thought I remembered it, I decided to read it again; this time slowly and analytically. Its author, Harriet Beecher Stowe was...

    Anne Robbins now lives in Midland, Texas. She's the widow of a career military man who was stationed in Roswell during the Roswell crash in July, 1947. She remembers the description of the saucer that her husband, Technical Sergeant Ernest Robert Robbins, told her he helped recover and the three small beings that were found outside the craft. Now 84 years old, Robbins has never before spoken publicly about Roswell, but she now says that what her late husband saw was not a downed weather balloon. Seated in a meeting room at the Odessa Meteor Crater Museum, she said, "We...
  • Study: Yellowstone moose not used to predators (Your tax dollars hard at work)

    Study: Yellowstone moose not used to predators The Associated Press MOOSE, Wyo.--Researchers who spent five years lobbing urine-soaked snowballs at moose in Alaska and Wyoming have noticed that moose in Grand Teton National Park do not react as dramatically to the scent of wolves and grizzly bears. Joel Berger and Sanjay Pyare, working for the Wildlife Conservation Society, suspect that's because Wyoming moose encounter predators less frequently. So Berger suspects wolf and grizzly populations have not fully recovered in the area in and around Yellowstone National Park. Berger hopes the study will prompt more considerations than raw numbers when...

    As you all know, as conservatives, we believe it is good sometimes to spank our kids and our wife (ahem), as well as make love to the wife and tickle the children. Why? Because emotions of pleasure and pain etc, have a tendency to hard wire a learned fact. It is called the law of effect, and it is the enemy's strategy that aims at bypassing reason. The left is crude because the left is in a long range process of rewiring what people were taught at birth. They do not go beyond that, yet the scary thing is they...

    ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Campus police at the University of Alaska Anchorage shot and killed a cow moose Tuesday night after the animal had menaced students and charged the officers. At one point, a student got trapped behind a light pole near the UAA Commons when the moose forced him to take refuge, said Sgt. Annie Endecott of the University Police Department. "He kept dodging the moose," Endecott said. "Every time he moved, the moose got real aggressive." The moose had been aggressive while wandering around the Commons area, according to police and students. "Somebody warned us: 'Watch out! There's a...

He even once wrote a paper about a "unicorn" moose that had but one antler growing straight from the top of its head. But after 20 years with the state of Alaska, Hundertmark has finally decided he's ready to make a move. A big move. Hundertmark recently accepted a job working with endangered species...
  • Beware of Drunk Elks

    Norwegian specialists in the field of environmental protection warn that there are drunk elks wandering around the woods of Norway in connection with the snowless weather. Many animals suffer from intoxication from eating over-fermented fruit. Apples that fall down from apple trees are then covered with a thick layer of snow and elks can not reach the fruit. However, this winter has had almost no snow in Norway, so elks simply eat tons of the fruit and enjoy its effects.

    The 'King of the Forest' - too big not to respect. PHOTO: Gorm Kallestad Drunken moose alert in southern Norway Experts are not sure how it will affect moose behavior, but if you meet Norway's 'King of the Forest' in the southern part of the country, he could be intoxicated - and potentially dangerous. According to a report from the Newspapers' News Bureau (ANB), the reason behind the warning is this year's early snowfall. A warm summer has led to an unusual bounty from the region's fruit trees. The sudden and early snowfall has left some fruit under snowy...

    "I will not exploit, for political purposes, the apparent sanity of my opponent," said Walter Mondale (D-Insane) when asked whether he was up to the task of returning to the Senate. Mondale made the comments at a press conference where he revealed a wardrobe change, a change that he says will prove once and for all that he is still "hip enough to be a US Senator." "I want my campaign to appeal to young people," Mondale said. To that end, the former Vice President is hosting an election eve dance party headlined by K.C. and the Sunshine Band. Activists...

    I thought I heard somebody say there’s an election next week. Pretty sure I heard that right. Something about mid-term Congressional elections. A bunch of governorships up for grabs. Things like that. Of course, I could be wrong. I saw what looked like a political rally on the tube but the talking heads kept telling me it was a memorial service. There may be political campaign spots on TV. I couldn’t say. Like most adult males, I channel surf during commercials. While in Missouri the other day, I saw a bus with a sign that said: “Chuck Norman likes Jim...

It just goes to show that the Elitists know their history better than the Conservatives/Republicans, and they will be beat every time, unless they learn history. Does anyone else see the built in lies of the New Nazi Democrat Liars and Propagandist Party, or are ya too NEA educated or too lazy to figure it out to point out these damned lies?

    If Missouri Senator Jean Carnahan were Barbara Bush some leftist celebrity would’ve called her a bitch by now. Most folks in Missouri think Jean Carnahan is a nice lady for whom they should feel sympathy. But last week a truer portrait of Senator Carnahan emerged and many are beginning to see that in truth she’s petty and mean. Much has been made of her recent appraisal of President Bush’s ineffectiveness as Commander in Chief. “I'm the No. 1 target of the White House,” Mean Jean said with a twinge of malice. “They can't get Osama bin Laden. They're going to...
