    BOFFINS have discovered the ruins of a 3,000-year old castle underwater – and believe they have finally found what they’ve been looking for. Archaeologists who have been searching Lake Van – the second largest lake in Turkey – for decades have discovered what they believe is a lost city. The castle is thought to be an Iron Age relic of the Urartu civilisation – also called the Kingdom of Van – which lived in the area from the 6th to the 9th century BC. The remarkable discovery was made by archaeologists from the Van Yüzüncü Yıl University and a team...

    Singer Nancy Sinatra on Thursday called for members of the National Rifle Association to be killed by firing squad. Sinatrathe daughter of legendary crooner Frank Sinatrashared the sentiment on Twitter following the murder of 59 people in Las Vegas by a mass shooter over the weekend.

    A Biblical Meditation on the Difficulties of Old Age Msgr. Charles Pope • September 26, 2016 • Today I would like to discuss the Gospel from last Saturday morning’s daily Mass (25th Week of the Year). For indeed one of the more beautiful passages in the Old Testament is the 12th Chapter of Ecclesiastes. It is a melancholy but soulful meditation on old age. Its poetic imagery is masterful as it draws from the increasingly difficult effects of old age such as hearing loss, fading eyesight, difficulty walking, digestive issues, and even gray hair.Remember your Creator in the days...

    I am going through a large collection of stuff my late father had, and in addition to a bunch of his WWII ribbons and such, I found what looks like an Iron Cross with ribbon dated 1815 on one side and 1914 on the other. It's in good condition. I see these on Ebay at up to $1000. Does anyone know someone I can trust to evaluate it?

    Several days ago, one of my arch nemesis oldfartrants, a senile old hippie bum from West LA who has a YouTube channel advocating socialism has now called for the overthrow of Donald Trump. This, after spending nearly a decade referring to Conservatives as traitors and opponents of Barack Obama as seditionists. He attacks Trump comparing him to Hitler and attacking other conservatives such as Ron Paul, Paul Ryan, John Boehner, Sarah Palin and so on. Yet now its not treason anymore to be in dissent, its no longer treason to want to overthrow an elected official like Trump or...

    I think this was around 1986 (or so)... when the nice rap was being taken over by the (future gansta rap) crap we see today.. This isn't bout rap, or any specific genre, but by users/people taking advantage of the 1st amendment. I think many here know what I am talking about.. but I also think many here are too young to remember before rap was even invented :p (not just about rap, but the degradation of not only music, but social norms in general).

    Takes one to know one. Weve spent quite a bit of time talking about the ugly reality facing todays Democrats. As a political force, theyve essentially been decimated by the Obama years. Following Hillary Clintons implosion, they hold a historically small number of seats at the federal, state, and local levels. Theyre facing an absolutely brutal 2018 midterm map, their bench is embarrassingly shallow, and (so far) fresh faces are nowhere to be found.

    Citigroup Charades One big bank that remains squarely in regulators’ gun sights is Citigroup, and for good reason. The present firm resulted from the merger of Citicorp and Travellers in 1998. Vikram Pandit left Morgan Stanley in 2005 after being passed over for CEO and, with two colleagues, started a hedge fund, Old Line. It was sold to Citigroup in 2007, right at the top of the financial bubble, for $800 million. Even though that hedge fund was not very successful and eventually closed, Pandit rose to be CEO of the firm in December 2007. On his watch, the company’s...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 7-12-15 | Sarah Westwood
    Hillary Clinton's family charity has accepted contributions from donors accused of violating sanctions against Iran. Her husband has also received a generous payment for a speech hosted by a company with financial interests in Iran. The ties to Iranian business raise questions about Clinton's cautious support of a nuclear deal that would lift sanctions that prevent companies close to her from making money in Iran. For example, a British company whose chairman is a member of the Clinton Global Initiative pleaded guilty to violating sanctions against Iran, the Daily Beast noted Friday..

    STREISAND CELEBRATES HILLARY VICTORY 'HAPPY DAYS ARE HERE AGAIN' Wed Aug 03 2016 11:44:09 ET Barbra Streisand was in a celebratory mood last night as she kicked off her farewell to the farewell tour in Los Angeles. "Happy Days are here again!" Streisand declared to a sold out crowd at the Staples Center. The audience roared as the singer zinged Donald Trump. "Our genetic makeup is 99.9% identical to every person on the face of the earth. The other .1% is Donald Trump!" The diva gestured in prayer and thanked the heavens. "It's simply a fact, right?"

    Unearthed: the humble origins of world diplomacy By David Keys, Archaeology Correspondent 19 January 2003 Archaeologists have discovered evidence of an invasion of the Middle East by one of the world's first superpowers, which destroyed much of the region 33 centuries ago. Under the ruins of a 3,800-year-old royal palace in western Syria they have found part of an ancient diplomatic and administrative library, the most important archaeological discovery of its kind for more than 20 years. Accounts on clay tablets describe the region's conquest by one of the Bronze Age's superpowers, the Hittite Empire, in 1340BC. This helped to...

    Tonight, Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the women of New Hampshire to "have fun burning in hell" after it was clear she had lost the state's Democratic primary election to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Clinton's remark referenced a statement made last weekend by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Madeleine Albright that "there's a special place in hell for women that don't help each other." "Well, the women of New Hampshire can have fun burning in hell after supporting Bernie Sanders over me. Bernie Sanders is an old White Jewish guy,...
