    Lynette Scribner witnessed an incredible story unfold on Alaska Airlines. A man named Tim was flying out of Boston on Alaska Airlines. He was deaf and blind. His sister brought him to the airport and was signing into his hand, and he could feel her words. He had a middle seat on the aircraft, but when he boarded the man in the aisle happily switched places. Flight attendants were happy to help him but couldn’t communicate. He touched their faces and their arms. They took his hand. She reports that “[h]e had some verbal ability, but clearly could not understand...

    A new mural calling for the dismantling of “whiteness” has sparked controversy at the University of Southern California. The mural, part of a USC Visions and Voices “Off the Wall” series of multi-media installation, features the images of four women and with the words “Dismantle whiteness and misogyny on this campus” plastered above, The College Fix reported. The controversial mural was erected by the school’s Institute for Diversity and Empowerment (IDEA) and students from a class called “Women: Designing Media for Social Change” in partnership with When Women Disrupt, a self-proclaimed intersectional feminist artist collective and activist group. They define...

    Police in Maryland say this was just the start of it: A 1997 Ford Crown Victoria, traveling in front of an officer early Friday morning, veered off a highway and struck a large traffic sign in Montgomery County. Next: A wooden support post from the sign became impaled in the Ford’s front windshield, sticking up and back more than five feet, like a misplaced lance. Yet the driver kept going, refusing to stop even as lights and sirens flashed behind him. “He was lucky no one was killed,” said Officer Rick Goodale, a Montgomery police spokesman. The driver, Omar Rasharn...
  • Last iconic 'immigrant crossing sign' disappears (it was stolen)

    While politicians are embroiled in a polarized national debate over immigration, an iconic road sign cautioning drivers near the San Diego border to watch for migrants running across the highway has quietly disappeared. The "immigrant crossing" signs have become obsolete, said Cathryne Bruce-Johnson, a spokeswoman for Caltrans. The transportation department stopped replacing the signs years ago because it constructed fences along medians to deter people from running across highways. The last sign, which stood on the side of Interstate 5 near the San Ysidro border crossing, vanished in September. "It's gone," Bruce-Johnson said. "Caltrans crews did not remove it,...

The centerpiece of their display was a sign with the name of Jesus Christ.The couple was dumbfounded when they received an email from their homeowners association days after putting up the decorations asking them to remove the display. One neighbor even called it offensive.“We know that Christmas was about the birth of Jesus,” Wivell said. “I was quite shocked it offended somebody, but...
  • The Taxman Cometh: Senate Bill’s Marginal Rates Could Top 100% for Some

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | December 10th, 2017 | By Richard Rubin
    WASHINGTON—Some high-income business owners could face marginal tax rates exceeding 100% under the Senate’s tax bill, far beyond the listed tax rates in the Republican plan. That means a business owner’s next $100 in earnings, under certain circumstances, would require paying more than $100 in additional federal and state taxes. As lawmakers rush to write the final tax bill over the next week, they already are looking at changes to prevent this from happening. Broadly, House and Senate Republicans are trying to reconcile the bills they passed, looking for ways to pay for eliminating the most contentious proposals. The formal...

    Originally I only had the TRUMP sign posted in front of my business, within 2 hours of the sign being placed out front we received a voice mail from a blocked phone number which is played during the video. I will not be bullied into removing the TRUMP sign simply because it offended someone. My Country is just as important as my business, I will assume that the sign was too large and too high for her to destroy or steal. The voicemail was what prompted me to make the sign more noticeable and take an even more dramatic approach...
  • City pondered action on Trump sign: Although campaign signs are excluded from ordinance

    GENEVA — A massive sign promoting presidential candidate Donald Trump has caused quite a stir. Daryl Soscia installed the sign, along with cardboard Trump cutouts on either side, on his front lawn at 20 Copeland Ave. It is illuminated at night and also has flags on each side. City Manager Matt Horn said last week the city’s sign ordinance excludes political signs. He provided this text from the city’s definition of a sign: “‘Sign’ includes a billboard, neon tube, fluorescent tube, or other artificial light or string of lights outlining or hung upon any part of a building or lot...

    "A woman named “Sarah” upset over a local resident’s Trump/Pence and “Hillary for Prison” lawn signs flipped off the owner of the house as she drove by. The owner of the house jumped in his own car and followed the woman while taking photos of the woman’s vehicle. A law enforcement officer pulled over both vehicles to the side of the road and the woman turned on her video camera and began talking to her “followers” about the incident. Her camera continued to record even when the police officer spoke to her."

    A Minnesota restaurant is telling Muslims they’re not welcome following Saturday’s stabbing attack at a St. Cloud shopping mall that left ten people injured. The owner of Treats Family Restaurant in Lonsdale, Dan Ruedinger, told a local CBS News affiliate that business has been booming since he posted a sign outside that reads, “Muslims Get Out.” Mr. Ruedinger said he had to call in three extra workers Monday to keep up with the demand. “It’s time that people started standing up, not worrying about the PC crowd and do what is right,” Mr. Ruedinger told CBS. “And I feel what...

    We all know what leftists are capable of doing. Well, we probably don't know the extent of what they are capable of doing. In demonstrations they urinate, flip people off, burn flags, and wreck cars and real property. That is just their nature. So it may be that you are afraid to display a TRUMP sticker on your car. Don't be. Here is the solution. At sign shops and places like Staples, you can purchase soft magnetic material as people use to promote their business. Use a TRUMP sticker or make your own and trim to size. You remove it...

    An Indiana homeowner set up a security camera to catch a thief stealing his Donald Trump yard signs — but he also captured a moment of Karma, as well. The Indianapolis resident, who didn’t want to be identified, caught a woman trespassing and grabbing his signs on Thursday. But it also caught her taking a spill when she didn’t realize the booby trapped sign was tied to the house.

    If you are afraid to display a TRUMP sticker on your car because the lowlifes on the other side may key it, here is the solution. Use soft magnetic material that you can get from places like Staples. Attach the sign to the magnetic material or make your own graphic and cover with the think plastic clear tape. When you park, simply remove the sign and put it in the trunk. Note: from experience, your car won't be keyed, but you will still be flipped off while driving. On the freeway, I had a guy pass me at a fast...

    This hilarious anti-socialism meme is going viral, and it's easy to see why. The image shows a yard sign for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, a self-described Democratic socialist, ripped in half. Attached to the sign is the message, "I took half of your sign because you had one and I didn’t. I’m sure you understand." Beneath that, the meme has the text, "Socialism: A great idea until it shows up in your front yard." The humorous image has quickly been shared widely on social media.

    When I first saw this image I was overwhelmingly confused, upset. I had to find out the source of the sign, who authored, made it, what the story behind it was, but had no clue and neither anyone at Google Plus did either. I then thought of doing a Google reverse image search hoping this strategy would reveal something, anything about the sign I could possibly learn. The idea was right on because it lead me to unravel the mystery behind this bizarre imagery. (HINT: Look at the very bottom of the image to get a clue.) SNOPES provides...
  • Burwell: Obama wouldn´t sign GOP plan to extend insurance subsidies

    U.S. President Barack Obama would not sign a Republican plan to extend subsidies for buying insurance under Obamacare if the Supreme Court rules against such assistance in the pending King v. Burwell case, U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell said on Wednesday. The proposal, offered by Republican Senator Ron Johnson and has 31 Republican co-sponsors, would extend the insurance subsidies until August 2017. But Burwell said the measure would also take away the subsidies over time and repeal important components of Obamacare such as guaranteeing insurance for Americans with pre-existing health conditions.
