  • Awkward! Rick Ross interrupts Barack Obama's White House speech about keeping kids out of trouble w

    An attempt by President Obama to promote his 'My Brother's Keeper' initiative, which aims to keep youths of color out of trouble, came to a farcical end when rapper Rick Ross's ankle bracelet - which he received on a kidnapping and assault charge - went off. Obama had invited a bevy of hip-hop heavyweights, including Niki Minaj, Common, Busta Rhymes, Pusha T and DJ Khaled, to the meeting at the White House Friday. But none of them - least of all Ross himself - expected the ankle bracelet to interrupt the president, according to TMZ.

    For a second straight day, opposition protesters erected burning roadblocks and shattered windows in a section of Haiti's capital on Tuesday to press for new elections less than a week before a January 24 presidential and legislative runoff. A few thousand people joined the demonstration in downtown Port-au-Prince, marching through narrow streets and occasionally chanting: "The revolution has started, get your gun ready." Young men threw rocks, smashing windshields and the windows of a bank. They also overturned vendors' stalls to block law enforcement vehicles. Associated Press journalists saw one injured protester with what appeared to be a bullet wound....

    Los Angeles Times ^ | November 7, 2015 | Teresa Watanabe and Howard Blume
    In a South Los Angeles classroom, a boy hassles a girl. The teacher moves him to the back of the room, where he scowls, makes a paper airplane and repeatedly throws it against the wall. Two other boys wander around the class and then nearly come to blows. "Don't you talk about my sister," one says to the other. The teacher steps between them. When she tries to regain order, another boy tells her: "Screw you." It's another day of disruption on this campus in the Los Angeles Unified School District, which has been nationally hailed by the White House...
  • Ancient arrowheads reveal the gory practices of Maya 'life force' rituals.

    Traces of blood discovered on ancient arrowheads in Guatemala prove the Maya took part in bloody ceremonies to communicate with their gods. Bloodletting ceremonies involved piercing the earlobes, tongues and even genitals of willing participants and using the spilled blood to 'feed' their deities. The arrows were collected from five sites in the central American region, including a temple at Zacpetén where it's thought bloodletting ceremonies took place around 500 years ago.

    A pregnant Dorchester woman says she has been too afraid to go outside since getting into a fight with an MBTA bus driver who she said swore at her when she couldn’t pay the fare. A cellphone video posted online that went viral captured the fracas after Husniya Anderson, 32, threw a drink at the 13-year veteran driver who had asked her to get off the bus because she didn’t have enough money for the fare. The video then appears to show the driver attacking Anderson outside the bus as she holds on to her 3-year-old daughter in an effort...

    On Friday, the Internal Revenue Service informed Congressional investigators that it could not recover two years of emails from Lois Lerner, the former head of the agency's tax-exempt status department. Lerner has been at the center of the investigation into how and why the IRS applied additional scrutiny to the tax-exempt applications of Tea Party-affiliated organizations.

    The "Arab Spring" is Nothing But a Delusion, A Mirage in the Desert Wilderness of The Modern World When will people realize that the words "Arab Spring" constitute absolutely nothing, means absolutely nothing, in terms of a genuine political movement or strategy? The phrase means nothing because it is about nothing, about nothing that constitutes a genuine ability to progress, as a people, as a society, in form of self-government, about anything that characterizes a definable, real world objective or political goal. The term "Arab Spring" goes only as far as that of mere poetic neologisms, a phenomena perpetuated by...

    When I got to the neighbor's house for Christmas dinner today, the neighbor was out, looking after the cattle, but his wife was in the kitchen, sitting at the table, going through a large bag of transparent tan-colored pharmaceutical bottles, taking out their contents and carefully putting a pill each into different compartments of two plastic boxes (which looked as if fishing-tackle boxes). Auntie had arrived under the cover of darkness the previous night, but was still sleeping. I looked at a couple of bottles, paid for by the hard-pressed taxpayers of Missouri, but being unfamiliar with pharmaceutical drugs, saw...

    A very Merry Christmas to decent and civilized people all over the world, but stockings full of coal and sticks to the primitives who almost, but didn't quite, cut it in 2009. The voting for TOP PRIMITIVE OF 2009 didn't seem to go hardly the way I had predicted, but then and again, I've never had much success as a predictor, especially in elections. When looking at the list of the nearly-wons among the primitives, one is reminded that in the 1700s in England (or perhaps it was during the 1800s in France), that an admiral (in England; or perhaps...

Given the increasing popularity of P-J Comix's most excellent DUmmie FUnnies, the Best/Worst of DU forum on conservativeunderground, and the DUmpster and DUmping Ground here at conservativecave, it is important that such a guide to watching the DUmmies in DUmmieland be up-to-date in time for the coming mid-term elections. One supposes the first question is, why bother watching the DUmmies, as compared with watching paint dry or changing the air in the tires on the automobile? There are several good reasons for watching the...

    Oh my. The other week, the neighbor, who lives six miles up the road, stopped by and invited me to two Thanksgiving dinners; one on Thanksgiving Day itself, the other the day after. He was obviously hoping I would attend both of them--after all, there's not many people in this area of the Sandhills of Nebraska--but I got the sense he really wanted me to come today (Friday), if I wasn't willing to do the Thanksgiving Day thing, too. Well, no, I wasn't willing to do the Thanksgiving Day thing, but I was curious about this day-after-Thanksgiving event, and so...

    South African traditional leaders plan to perform ritual animal slaughters to bless stadiums for the 2010 World Cup tournament ahead of the start of the showcase event next June, they said on Friday. Zolani Mkiva, chairman of the Makhonya Royal Trust, a grouping responsible for co-ordinating cultural activities, said the tournament, the first to be held in Africa, needed to be blessed in true "African style." "We must have a cultural ceremony of some sort, where we are going to slaughter a beast (cow)," said Mkiva. South Africa is set to host the World Cup -- the world's most watched...

    WEST PALM BEACH - Citing the depravity of the gang rape and torture of a mother and her son, 12, in the Dunbar Village Apartments, Circuit Judge Krista Marx on Tuesday sentenced three of the four men involved to life in prison. It was the only appropriate disposition, the judge said. The standing-room-only crowd gasped in disbelief. As deputies led the men from the courtroom, a scuffle ensued between defendant Tommy Poindexter and an officer. A woman in the crowd began screaming, setting off more yelling.

Anyway, I had seen a primitive bonfire about how the primitives greedily freeload, taking handfuls, bagfuls, of packets of ketchup and mustard, from fast-food places, rather than buying a bottle of ketchup and a bottle of mustard at the grocery store for home use. Which should surprise no one not...

    Say hello to the honorable mention DUmmies of 2008 It is getting to be that time of year to reveal the Top 10 DUmmies of 2008. I’d like to say a huge thank you to all who voted. This year’s voting completely blew away each of the past few years. As evidenced by the results, it was extremely difficult to make the Top 10. There were simply so many competitors. Thankfully, we’ve been able to pare down the list to determine the cream of the DUmmy crop for 2008. This thread will reveal those who just missed the Top 10....

    Nearly two-thirds of Egyptian men admit to having sexually harassed women in the most populous Arab country, and most say women themselves are to blame for their maltreatment, a survey shows. The forms of harassment reported by Egyptian men, whose country attracts millions of foreign tourists each year, include touching or ogling women, shouting sexually explicit remarks, and exposing their genitals to women. "Sexual harassment has become an overwhelming and very real problem experienced by all women in Egyptian society, often on a daily basis," said the report by the Egyptian Centre for Women's Rights. Egyptian women and female visitors...

However, at trial Falih repudiated her confession, saying it had been extracted under torture. Human Rights Watch also charged the Saudi woman’s trial was flawed, alleging misconduct on the part of the judge and prosecutor. An appeals court threw out the death penalty in September 2006, but the...

Zarrinkelk, 70, an icon of Iranian animated cinema, will not be allowed to teach anymore as part of new punitive measures in a moralization campaign which kicked off late last month and provides for the arrest of women who do...

    A species of shark rarely seen alive because its natural habitat is 600 metres (2,000 ft) or more under the sea was captured on film by staff at a Japanese marine park this week. The Awashima Marine Park in Shizuoka, south of Tokyo, was alerted by a fisherman at a nearby port on Sunday that he had spotted an odd-looking eel-like creature with a mouthful of needle-sharp teeth. Marine park staff caught the 1.6 metre (5 ft) long creature, which they identified as a female frilled shark, sometimes referred to as a "living fossil" because it is a primitive species...

    Protests have been held in cities across Canada aimed at stopping Ontario province from adopting sharia-based law to settle Muslim family disputes. Ontario is considering a report which recommends that it allow sharia religious arbitration for issues such as divorce and child custody. Opponents say the proposed arbitration process will violate women's' rights. Approval would make Ontario the only western jurisdiction to adopt a form of sharia arbitration. The demonstration outside the Ontario legislature was the focal point for several protests across Canada. Sharia-based laws would be similar to faith-based tribunals already permitted by the Canadian province for Catholics and...
