    Morrisville, N.C. — The president of the North Carolina NAACP was escorted off an American Airlines flight Friday night. Rev. William Barber was returning to Raleigh from Washington, D.C., when, he says, he was removed from the flight. [snip]Barber said a passenger in a seat nearby was talking loudly as the plane filled up and asked the stewardess to request the passenger lower his voice. After requesting assistance from the flight attendant, Barber said he overheard the nearby passenger making "distasteful" and "disparaging" comments about him. According to Barber's statement, the passenger said he had problems with "those people" and...

    Pop diva Miley Cyrus accused GOP frontrunner Donald Trump of being “sexist” in his defense of his wife Melania on Instagram Friday. Cyrus, who often appears nude during shows and online, posted the retweeted image, and wrote: “Trump can’t stop won’t stop saying stupid ass sexist s—t!!!!” Along with posting the out-of-context photo, Cyrus accused Trump of attempting to divide women, and attacked the billionaire real estate developer’s children. “Comparing two women!

    This little piggy, who ran wildly among cars and brought traffic to a halt in San Francisco's Mission District earlier this month, has traded in city life for the country. According to the San Francisco Department of Animal Care and Control, the wayward piglet, who has since been named Janice, was adopted by Al Wolf, the director of Sonoma County Reptile Rescue. The piglet and her new guardian left for Sonoma Monday morning. Janice drew a crowd of good Samaritans on March 8, leading them on a chase up and down Dolores Street, animal care officials said.

And as she peeked at Trump's strong standing on the Republican delegate leaderboard Tuesday, Cyrus explained that she was "gonna vom / move out da country."

    BOSTON—Former president Bill Clinton responded to controversy surrounding an alleged violation of Massachusetts’ prohibition against campaigning at a polling place, insisting that he was “merely hitting on women” rather than attempting to solicit votes for his wife. The controversy began after Clinton was spotted within multiple voting precincts in the Boston area, in apparent violation of a law prohibiting campaigning within 150 feet of a polling place. In a press conference, Clinton stated that he was “just trying to bag some a dat(sic) New England lobstah tail, if you know what I mean” before running across the front row of...

    The recent publication of a close-up of Lena Dunham's naked bottom as season's greeting from America's new sweetheart prompts a moment of psychoanalysis. Fundamentally, Dunham's repulsive presence is political propaganda. Totalitarianism maintains its control through fear and imposition of the irrational, inhumane, and self-destructive mental condition generally termed dissociation. The vulgarity and obscenity of many female comics play a role in inducing that malleable mental state in people who have fallen into attenuated connections with God and conscience. Dunham leads the pack of the propagandistas of the disgusting.

    **SNIP** But even if enrollment tops 12 million, that's barely more than had signed up last year - when the administration said 11.7 million had enrolled. Whatever the number is, it's inflated, because the administration counts anyone who went through the process of selecting a plan, not those who have actually paid for it. It would be like Amazon counting anything anyone put in their shopping cart as a sale. Last year, the initial 11.7 million "enrollees" had dropped by 25% once the non-payers got subtracted out. That's why the White House figures that, by the end of next year,...

    CHANDLER, Ariz., - After three months of litigation, an Arizona family was allowed to keep a pot-bellied pig on the grounds that it helps their 9-year-old son, who has Asperger's. In August the Gil family was told that they would have to get rid of Maggie, their 3-year-old Vietnamese pot-bellied pig, because their home was not properly zoned to house livestock. On Nov. 17 a court granted the family special permission to keep Maggie as a pet because the pig provides aid to their son Julian, who has been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome. The City of Chandler stated that Maggie's...

The post's author – GlendilTEK – on imgur website wrote how none of the pigs shot by his in-laws on the Californian ranch had blue fat. He wrote how the rest of the pig was "normal" – the meat, the blood, and the hide.

    TORONTO (AP) — “Mike’s Happy Movie” was the working title of Michael Moore’s latest documentary, “Where to Invade Next,” but few would consider its examination of American ills — from runaway college tuition to mass incarceration — the stuff of bubbly, feel-good delight. Yet “Where to Invade Next,” in which Moore plunders foreign (mostly European) ideas like Italy’s government-mandated vacation or Portugal’s decriminalized drug use to bring back home to America, has an unmistakable whiff of hope. Yes, Moore, that passionately voluble critic and left-wing icon, is feeling a wind at his back. Moore’s first film in six years, he...

There may be something to that line of thinking, but Ross Perot is not the entrepreneur whom Trump most closely resembles. You heard it here first:...

    Adapting a worldwide phenomenon like Fifty Shades of Grey into a film can be a huge risk. There are millions of fans to appease, an author’s own vision to consider, and a taboo subject to navigate for the masses. But for director Sam Taylor-Johnson, all of those risks motivated her. “I knew it was going to be an enormous challenge,” Taylor-Johnson told The Daily Beast. It’s only her second feature film—her first being 2008’s Nowhere Boy, which chronicled the early life of John Lennon—and the subject was relatively unfamiliar territory for her. “But that’s partly why I did it.”

Sometimes, Wallace said, there would be “mud” or “pee” in her hair, so she showers, even as many as “three times a day.” “You know, I have to say, I have a theory about showering, which is that white people shower a lot more than ethnics,” Rivera responded.

The pig, thought to be about 70 pounds, had been brought aboard the US Airways plane at Bradley International Airport in Connecticut as an emotional-support animal. Crew members determined the animal was too disruptive and asked the woman to leave with the pig before the flight departed.

    A virus that killed millions of baby pigs in the last year and led to higher pork prices has waned thanks to warmer weather and farmers’ efforts to sterilize their operations. And as pigs’ numbers increase, sticker shock on things like bacon should ease. Already, hog supplies are on the rise, with 5.46 million baby pigs born between June and August in Iowa, the nation’s leading producer—the highest quarterly total in 20 years and a record 10.7 surviving pigs per litter, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture report. It’s a significant turnaround from a year ago when the porcine...

    Practically from the moment after September 11, 2001, people started saying that the most effective way to fight Muslims was to lace American ammunition with pork. Finally, in 2013, an Idaho company came up with pork-laced ammunition for non-military customers: Jihawg Ammo today announced release of the industry’s first truly defensive ammunition.Not only does Jihawg guarantee that all of their ammunition meets or exceeds S.A.A.M.I. standards for velocity, penetration, and accuracy, they also coat each projectile with a special ballistic paint infused with pork to make it “Haraam” or unclean to a radical Jihadist.This makes Jihawg Ammo the only commercially...

    A British Muslim, dismayed by his young son’s wish to become a pig rather than a doctor, has taken on a mission to effect the removal from television of Peppa Pig, the much-loved animal character whom he claims inspired his child’s unusual ambition, according to the Daily Mirror. Zayn Sheikh’s campaign includes a Facebook page called “Muslims against Peppa Pig“ that features a video – shared more than 9,000 times – explaining his reasons for pursuing the ban. “Some of you, right, might have seen this abominable creature before, right, this Peppa Pig. Haram pig,” Sheikh says in the video....

    An honest mistake. Could have happened to anyone: " The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) has angered Muslim staff by hosting a hog roast to celebrate the Commonwealth Games beneath the windows of its Arabic TV service. The Sun on Sunday reports that a whole pig was spit-roasted in the courtyard of New Broadcasting House in London, with the smell of pork drifting up through the windows of the mainly Muslim office. Workers described their “horror” at spotting the pig on their lunch break. Islam forbids its followers from eating pork as pigs are considered “unclean” animals. The hog roast also...

    UNE 5--With his divorce trial looming, Michael Moore is battling his wife over the valuation of the couple’s assets, while branding her a spendthrift who “unilaterally wasted a large percentage of the marital funds” building a lakefront mansion that has prompted mocking news stories about the activist filmmaker’s wealth. Moore and Kathleen Glynn are scheduled for trial next month in a Michigan courtroom not far from the sprawling Torch Lake residence that the Hollywood power contends became a money pit that cost five times what his wife claimed she would spend on the home.

    A fast-spreading virus that can kill 80 percent of piglets that contract it is rapidly spreading across Missouri hog farms, wiping out entire nurseries in some cases. Porcine epidemic diarrhea has killed 4 million to 5 million pigs nationwide, or about 4 percent of the pigs that would go to market later this year, The Joplin Globe reported. . . . . "We're adding 300 farms per week to the list of infected farms. I think most all will wind up with the disease," Plain said. "The average slaughter age is 6 months. So we will see the impact of...
  • Sharpton: Rand Paul Trying 'To Do The Monica Lewinsky on the Democrats'

    Did Al Sharpton just stumble into some unfortunate phrasing, or did he take an intentionally vulgar shot at Rand Paul? On his MSNBC show tonight, discussing the fact that Paul recently raised the most salacious scandal of Bill Clinton's presidency, Sharpton said "Rand Paul is really going to try to do the Monica Lewinsky on the Democrats as a way of countering the war on women that they're doing with legislation and all kinds of things." I'm inclined to believe the sly Sharpton knew exactly what he was doing. View the video here.

    I’ve traveled the country with dogs for over 20 years, so I can honestly say I have slept in some not so swift rooms and some that have been oh-so-divine. Pet friendly, however, is not always what it’s cracked up to be, and if you’ve had a less-than-stellar experience at a supposed “pet friendly” establishment, you are nodding in agreement. How many of you, when calling a hotel or facility to ask if they are pet friendly ask something like this: “Hi. Can you tell me if you allow pets?” How many of you ask, “Hello, are you pet welcoming?”...

    MARMET, WV - A beloved pet is missing near Marmet, WV and the family believes a stranger they encountered on their property the day their pet disappeared is responsible.

When they heard a shot outside their home Mia Clark and her husband Larry knew something wasn't quite right. Then as they were leaving to take their daughter to gymnastics, they encountered a stranger. "The guy wouldn't look at us," she said. "He...

    The human species began as the hybrid offspring of a male pig and a female chimpanzee, a leading geneticist has suggested. The startling claim has been made by Eugene McCarthy, of the University of Georgia, who is also one of the worlds leading authorities on hybridisation in animals. He points out that while humans have many features in common with chimps, we also have a large number of distinguishing characteristics not found in any other primates. Dr McCarthy says these divergent characteristics are most likely the result of a hybrid origin at some point far back in human evolutionary history....
