    Dear Members of ISIS: You undoubtedly believe that you’re having quite a year now: Paris, Brussels, Nice, Istanbul, San Bernardino, Orlando and the list of butchering goes on. You have literally gotten away with mass murder, rape, torture and terror because the President of the United States is a weak, left wing ideologue sympathetic to Islam; and the so-called political elite in Western Europe are spineless, do-gooder fools who believe that cowardice, political correctness and diversity are the sinews of war. You have taken advantage of the benevolence of comfortable, soft, wealthy European nations and one country’s universal guilt for...
  • Billboard mag: An open letter to Congress: Stop Gun Violence Now

    06/23/2016 7:36:09 AM PDT · by rktman · 26 replies ^ | 6/23/2016 | unknown
    As leading artists and executives in the music industry, we are adding our voices to the chorus of Americans demanding change. Music always has been celebrated communally, on dancefloors and at concert halls. But this life-affirming ritual, like so many other daily experiences—going to school or church or work—now is threatened, because of gun violence in this country. The one thing that connects the recent tragedies in Orlando is that it is far too easy for dangerous people to get their hands on guns. We call on Congress to do more to prevent the gun violence that kills more than...

Dear George Clooney, Ah, so it looks like you’ve decided to weigh in on the fake outrage of the day. I’m speaking of course of the boycotting of the Oscars being “too white.” I was wondering when you’d find the time to self-importantly chime in. South Park didn’t devote an entire episode to your “smugness” for nothing. Let me see if I’m reading you correctly... “If you think back 10 years ago, the Academy was doing a better job.

If you’re in any doubt, I’d recommend you read this superbly erudite open letter to Pope Francis which has been put together by the Cornwall Alliance laying out the theological arguments against global warming catastrophism – and, more pertinently, lamenting the massive damage it’s doing to the well being of the people both the Old and New Testaments enjoin us to protect: the world’s poor. It has been released to coincide with the Vatican’s conference this week on climate change which, unfortunately for...

In the photo pictured above, Kelis appears as half dog/half woman, perhaps embracing change, PETA or simply those who have called her a B**tch in years past. Whatever it is, the look is not something you see everyday. Earlier this year, Kelis penned an open letter to PETA, addressing their concerns over her decision to wear fur on a regular basis.

    At the Democrats' presidential debate last week, the candidates were asked to comment on issues pertaining to education. This was Connecticut Sen. Chris Dodd's response: "I've been asked the question over the years, 'What's the single most important issue?' I always say education because it is the answer to every other problem we confront as a people here." Needless to say, no other candidate took issue with Sen. Dodd, and it is likely that most senators, all the Democrats and many Republicans, would agree with the sentiment. But the sentiment is not only wrong, it is destructive. There are, of...

In a full-page ad in The Gazette newspaper in Colorado Springs, the group said Dobson wrongly characterized the court’s April ruling as a victory for abortion foes. The ad said the ruling will actually encourage medical professionals to find "less shocking" methods than late-term abortions, which abortion opponents often call "partial-birth abortion."
