    Okay. I have sort of gone nuts with harmonica the last six months. Thinking of the tough job our President has and wishing him well on a nasty day like today, I was also surfing harmonica. I saw this and thought it was supposed to be about him -- but it has been online for eight years. It's a good duo and I am waiting for a delivery of a new custom harmonica amplifier next week. Let's hear it for OUR Orange Dude. Click the source link or cut and paste. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmPOnRUDZAE
  • Judges Reject Orange County's Claim That Social Workers Didn't Know Lying In Court Was Wrong

    Using taxpayer funds, government officials in Orange County have spent the last 16 years arguing the most absurd legal proposition in the entire nation: How could social workers have known it was wrong to lie, falsify records and hide exculpatory evidence in 2000 so that a judge would forcibly take two young daughters from their mother for six-and-a-half years? From the you-can't-make-up-this-crap file, county officials are paying Lynberg & Watkins, a private Southern California law firm specializing in defending cops in excessive force lawsuits, untold sums to claim the social workers couldn't have "clearly" known that dishonesty wasn't acceptable in...

    American Thinker ^ | June 16, 2016 | F. W. Burleigh
    What is the difference between a Muslim who applies henna to his beard and a Muslim who beheads someone for rejecting Islam? Answer: There is no difference. Both are following the example of the behavior of Muhammad -- his sunna. This is an important word, because it is where the Sunnis take their name. The Sunnis, who make up 90 percent of all Muslims, are the followers of the ways of Muhammad, his behavior in all areas of his life. The Shias also follow the ways of Muhammad, as do Muslims from every minor sect. The imitation of Muhammad could...

    ORANGE – Jim Reeves grew up eating burgers at Watson’s. The 57-year-old, who says his family moved to Orange in 1893 “in a covered wagon ... before Watson’s opened,” says his parents also ate at Watson’s. So did his grandparents. Watson’s, which opened in 1899 as the drugstore in downtown Orange, is one of the county’s oldest businesses. It’s where Tom Hanks filmed part of “That Thing You Do!” It’s also where George W. Bush once stopped in for a malt. In Orange, Watson’s is an icon. Now, that icon and the town around it are about to change. A...

  • New Poll: Boehner Under Water With GOP Voters

    Rank-and-file GOP House members are now confronted with an important question: do they want to head into a presidential election with a leader who is unpopular with their own voters and hated by Independents? Gallup released a poll today showing that just 23% of Americans view Speaker John Boehner favorably. A clear majority have an unfavorable view of him. What is more revealing is that Boehner is under water in terms of approval with his own party. Just 37% of Republicans have a favorable view of the Speaker, while 42% view him unfavorably. His numbers are atrocious among Independents –...

    Police in Belfast are investigating a photo posted to social media on Monday in which a group of masked men yielding baseball bats, axes and stakes stand before a wall of graffiti that threatens to crucify Catholics. “Taigs will be crucified,” the shocking message reads, using a derogatory term for Irish Catholics. The letters “VTOT” are written below, with a cross. They are believed to stand for “Village Team on Tour,” the name of a loyalist gang in South Belfast. The graffiti was discovered on Monday, when the photo was first shared on social media. It has been widely viewed...

  • Israeli mobile carrier mulls dumping Orange brand, suing after CEO backs boycott

    The French government owns 25% of Partner and it is under pressure to pull out of its Israeli activities because Partner operates in the West Bank. Israeli mobile carrier Partner Communications Ltd. is considering ending its agreement with French telecom giant Orange after Orange CEO Stephane Richard said Wednesday that his company wished to distance itself from its role in facilitating Israel’s rule over the Palestinian territories. The Israeli company is also considering additional steps such as suing Richard for damages for his boycott comments. Speaking at a press conference in Cairo, Richard told journalists, “Our intention is to withdraw...

    The French cell phone company Orange announced on Thursday afternoon that it has decided to halt its operations in Israel and end its partnership with the Israeli company Partner, which franchises Orange's name in Israel. The dramatic move comes as Israel is launching a political campaign in response to the insulting comments made Wednesday by Stephane Richard, CEO of Orange, in which he said he wished he could "dump" Israel "tomorrow," which he in fact did. "Orange doesn't want to continue to hold its brand name in countries in which it isn't the direct provider. Therefore, Orange is interested in...

    If he could, Stephane Richard, the CEO of French mobile company Orange said Wednesday, he would “tomorrow” end his company's association with its Israeli partner. “We want to terminate this and to fix this, we don’t want it,” Richard said at a press conference in Cairo. “In the existing contract, it gives us the option to terminate this without exposing this to a huge financial risk. If you were the CEO of this company you would act the same.” In Israel, Orange is represented by Partner Communications, and Israeli-Chinese owned concern that franchises the name Orange. The Israeli company is...

    ORANGE, N.J. – A teacher in New Jersey who assigned her third-grade class to write "get well" letters to a sick inmate convicted of killing a Philadelphia police officer was suspended Friday, the school superintendent said. Orange School Superintendent Ronald Lee said in a statement that school administrators "vehemently deny" any knowledge of Marilyn Zuniga's assignment. Preliminary inquiries found that Zuniga did not seek approval from administrators nor were parents notified, Lee said. The letters were delivered to Mumia Abu-Jamal in prison following his hospitalization last month for what his family said was treatment for complications from diabetes. The former...

    Only Charlie Crist Can Go to Communist Cuba Posted By Daniel Greenfield On May 22, 2014 In The Point Charlie Crist has been a Republican, an Independent and a Democrat, switching parties after every defeat. If he loses this time, he might be thinking of going Communist. He’s not quite red, but orange might be close enough. Now Crist is going to Cuba. After originally playing anti-Communist and anti-Castro, Crist is throwing out yet another plank of his platform now that he’s a Democrat. Now Crist is all about the Communism. “I understand that it’s important not to go to...

    A citrus disease spread by a tiny insect has devastated Florida's orange crop, which is expected to be the worst in nearly 30 years, and sent juice prices soaring on New York markets. The culprit? The gnat-sized Asian citrus psyllid, which is infecting citrus trees across the Sunshine State with huanglongbing, or citrus greening disease, which causes fruit to taste bitter and fall from trees too soon.

    The temptation to bully can be too great to resist.If you don't like something or the someone who's done that something, you want to squish them -- if you're bigger than they are, that is.One method often used is to get a fancy lawyer to write a cease-and-desist letter, designed to stop the recipient from breathing.The township of West Orange, N.J., decided that Jake Freivald was a nail for its hammer. He had exercised sufficient temerity to operate a Web site called WestOrange.info. It's not a fancy site. And it certainly doesn't purport to have any affiliation with the township....

    Being born and raised in Belfast, I’m used to hearing about terrorists, bombs and shootings on the local news, but I can honestly say that despite all that, I considered my hometown a pretty safe place to grow up. I moved to London a year ago, and while Northern Ireland is by no means front-page news here, I couldn’t help but notice that for the past month rioting in Belfast has been featured in almost every news bulletin. The rioting began when Belfast City Council voted to end the continuous flying of the Union Flag from City Hall and hasn’t...

That's because the Orange County Register plans to have 70 of its 100 reporters — yes, that's a seven followed by a zero — covering Friday night's opener between the Los Angeles Angels and Kansas City Royals at Angel Stadium. A "news mob," the paper calls it. As a point of comparison, Wikipedia lists 48 regular members of the White House press...
