  • The True Story Of Andrew Jacksons Swearing Parrot

    Andrew Jackson isnt the only US President to keep a pet bird in the White House. Teddy Roosevelt had a one-legged rooster and James Buchanan supposedly owned two bald eagles (because America). But to our knowledge, Jackson was the only one to have a swearing parrot. The birds name was Poll and was originally meant for Jacksons wife, Rachel. But after she passed away, Jackson became the African Greys caretaker. So how did the parrot get a foul mouth? We cant say for sure. But with what we know about Jacksona man so tough and temperamental his nickname was Old...

    Eloquent at the podium, JFK could swear like a (which he was, of course) away from the microphone. When word leaked that the Air Force had spent $5000 to furnish a maternity suite for Jackie Kennedy at Otis Air Force Base, the president knew the expenditure would be used as a political football. "This is obviously a fu**-up," he fumed to a hapless general over the phone.

    We have an update on the previous thread, which I'll link below. Trump denied saying "sh*thole" in the meeting, Dick Durbin came out and said Trump said it: In the course of his comments, [President Trump] said things which were hate-filled, vile and racist, Sen. Dick Durbin says of sh*thole countries comments. He said these hate-filled things and he said them repeatedly. Of course, he then dramatized it to the extreme: "The most disheartening thing to me is, my belief that, that was the first time words that hateful have been spoken in the Oval Office of the White...

    President Trump grew frustrated with lawmakers Thursday in the Oval Office when they discussed protecting immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries as part of a bipartisan immigration deal, according to several people briefed on the meeting. Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here? Trump said, according to these people, referring to countries mentioned by the lawmakers. Trump then suggested that the United States should instead bring more people from countries such as Norway, whose prime minister he met with Wednesday. The president, according to a White House official, also suggested he would be...

    An Iowa Democratic congressional candidate's foul mouth reportedly has gotten her barred from speaking at a local fundraiser next month.

Committee co-chairs Kimberley Boggus and Lindsay Paulson reportedly wrote in a letter to party members that the event will include children and should be "family-friendly." ----------- "The party that tells women to sit down and shut up is not...

    It seems clear that everyday conversation in America has become coarser in recent years, but it doesnt mean that the typical Hollywood film laced with language your grandmother would have punished with soap reflects reality or even makes good economic sense, contends a prominent film critic. In fact, a new Harris poll shows that filmmakers who use the f-word and take the name of Jesus Christ in vain risk losing some of their audience. The poll confirms extensive, in-depth surveys by Ted Baehrs family-friendly publication Movieguide that examine some 150 different criteria that affect box office receipts. One of the...

    BELLEVUE, Neb. (WOWT) -- A local man was kicked out of a Bellevue Golden Corral because of the shirt on his back. Another customer reported him to the manager, claiming the shirt was too controversial for children to see. The situation has the man in-question considering his first amendment rights. "I paid for the f***-ing food, Riek Mock can be heard saying in the video. Mock told his son to start recording video on his phone Sunday when the restaurants manager asked him to leave. "He said a customer is complaining he don't like your T-shirt on," said Mock. "I...

    The foolish and wicked practice of profane cursing and swearing, declared George Washington, is a vice so mean and low that every person of sense and character detests and despises it. Theodore Roosevelt concurred: Profanity is the parlance of the fool. Why curse when there is such a magnificent language with which to discourse? The answer is that profanity is a useful substitute for discourse when one is losing a debate and needs to trump reason with passionate intensity in order to win. That is what is happening in the current degraded state of our national political conversation. Im not...

    Al D’Amato was once widely known as “Sen. Pothole” for focusing on local issues. Kirsten Gillibrand is earning a different nickname: Sen. Potty-mouth. In recent months, leading Democrats from national chairman Tom Perez on down have been unleashing f-bombs, s-bombs and everything in between as they try to rally their party to “resist.” And New York’s junior senator seems to be leading the charge. “If we are not helping people, we should go the f - - k home,” Gillibrand told the Personal Democracy Forum at NYU last Friday. Of President Trump, she asked: “Has he kept his promises? F - - k no.” Indeed, she...

    All this commotion over campaign signs? Proving that more often than not, Republicans are their own worst enemies, a Wayne, New Jersey, councilman has been hit with a harassment complaint after a profanity-laced tirade directed at a fellow party member. Passaic County Regular Republican Organization employee Susan Enderly filed the complaint against Councilman Richard Jasterzbski after a heated argument Sunday about campaign signs being removed from the PCRRO headquarters, according to The Record. Unfortunately for Jasterzbski, the exchange was captured on video by the womans daughter, who was standing right there! You would be so lucky if I were fing...

    Cussing their way back into power, two middle fingers at a time.: At the increasingly profane Democrat Partys annual convention in California, the 84 year-old outgoing state party chairman, some guy named John Burton, closed out the proceedings by sticking both middle fingers in the air and leading gleeful party members in the chant of F*** Donald Trump! F*** Donald Trump! The fake national news media largely ignored the incident. Try to imagine the fake media outrage that would ensue if a state GOP party chair led a GOP convention in a chant of F*** Barack Obama!, or F*** Hillary...

    Parents need to know that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues the adventures of Marvel's motley group of space outlaws first introduced in the smash hit Guardians of the Galaxy. Expect lots of interest from kids of all ages, but it's most appropriate for tweens and up. There's frequent fighting with weapons (swords, guns, and more), space chases/battles, executions that involve people being "spaced" (forced out of airlocks to die in the freezing cold of deep space), and more. Spoiler alert: A popular character dies. Language, while not frequent, can also be strong, with everything from "douche" and "d--k"...

    Benjamin Bergen is the author of the book: What the F: What Swearing Reveals About Our Language, Our Brains, and Ourselves. It turns out that there are amazing things you can find out about how the mind works, how the brain works, peoples human sociality just by looking at profanity, he explained. The professor of Cognitive Science at UC San Diego said cursing could be linked to higher intelligence. It turns out that on average, the ones who swear the most also have the biggest vocabulary overall, Bergen added.

    A CNN panelist dismissed Bill Clintons documented history of sexual abuse against women as F-ing ridiculous dude on a broadcast of Erin Burnett Outfront, as the networks continue to cover for the Clintons while devoting vast swathes of air time to Trumps locker room banter tape from 2005. The comments were made by liberal CNN political commentator Angela Rye, who went absolutely crazy and almost yelled obscenities when the conservative member of the panel brought up documented accounts of Hillary Clintons attacks on the women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual abuse.
