    An older article from Salon that perfectly encapsulates much of the vitriol that is spreading around the internet lately. If you’ve ever been to a professional sports game, you’ve likely seen or perhaps have been a part of the Kiss Cam. Basically, the camera will pan for couples in the crowd and put them on the big screen, compelling them to kiss. Salon and internet ‘progressives’ have had enough. Salon ran an article in late 2013 calling the practice ‘Heterosexist and Juvenile.’ And that was just the headline. Author Mark Joseph Stern has decided to launch an attack on the...

    WEST ALLIS, Wis. -- A former police officer charged in the deaths of two women -- one from the Twin Cities -- whose bodies were stuffed into suitcases and left on a rural Wisconsin highway met his victims online, according to police and a criminal complaint.

He was arrested Wednesday, when detectives wearing hazmat suits removed large bags of evidence and a refrigerator from his apartment in West Allis, a Milwaukee suburb. Highway workers discovered two suitcases containing female remains June 5 in the...

    BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — A man is accused of trying to get marijuana into a Washington state jail by attaching it to an arrow he shot onto the roof. A Whatcom County sheriff's employee saw the man step out of his pickup truck and use a bow to launch the arrow toward the jail's second-floor recreation area, but it missed its target. ((snip)) The sheriff says Jordan told deputies he had been aiming at a squirrel, but he couldn't explain why he needed to attach marijuana to the arrow to go squirrel hunting.

    Ann Murray, a South Bend, IN mother, came home Monday night around 11:30 and found a strange man in her apartment on North Lance Court. She thought she was being robbed, but instead the man, "had cooked some chicken and onions in a pot, folded my clothes and swept my floor," Murray says. That’s right – the burglar was making dinner, had neatly organized Murray's laundry and cleaned her floors. When asked if he did a good job, Murray laughed and said, "Yes, he drank up my orange juice, but it's cool, because he swept my floors and folded my...

    A wealthy Florida man has adopted his 42-year-old girlfriend as a daughter in a move critics say will protect the man's assets during an upcoming lawsuit surrounding a deadly car accident. Polo Club Palm Beach founder John Goodman, 48, adopted his longtime partner Heather Laruso Hutchins in October, The Palm Beach Post reports. The strategy could shore up Goodman's wealth as he confronts a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of Scott Patrick Wilson, The Associated Press says. Wilson was killed in 2010 when Goodman allegedly ran a stop sign. The trial begins March 27. Goodman had previously set...

    A Massachusetts woman says the FBI used a chain saw blade to cut through her door and held her at gunpoint for at least 30 minutes before agents realized they were conducting a raid at the wrong home. Judy Sanchez, of Fitchburg, says she awoke to heavy footsteps in the stairwell on Jan. 26 and walked into her kitchen in time to see a blade chop through her door. "I took two steps, face the second door, and I heard the click of a gun, and saying, ‘FBI, get down,’ so I laid down on my living room floor,” Sanchez...

    People love to hype 2012 as the end of the world. It's BS, but hey, when it gets into the public consciousness, things stick. Anywho, a scientist named Brad Carter is predicting that the star Betelgeuse is expected to go super-nova very soon. If this happens, the sky that we look at could have two stars in it, even though Betelgeuse is 1,300 light years away. On the bright side, Carter assures us that we won't all die

    This is the horrifying moment a wheelchair-bound man plunged to his death down an elevator shaft after he deliberately rammed the lift door in a fit of anger.

Mr Lee then reversed his vehicle slightly and drove into the doors again, making a dent....

    Rabbits could be milked on a mass scale if a pioneering medical treatment gets the go-ahead. The animals have been genetically engineered to produce C1 inhibitor, a protein that occurs naturally in the human body, according to National Geographic. People who suffer from the genetic disorder hereditary angioedema (HAE) do not produce enough of the protein and suffer from attacks of painful swelling in their soft tissues. They can even die from asphyxiation if the swelling affects their throat. Although the protein can be harvested from donor blood, stocks are limited and can carry the risk of a viral infection,...

    MANILA, Dec. 27 (Xinhua) -- An animal rights group on Thursday blamed the Philippine customs for ruining their protest by confiscating inflatable sex dolls they planned to use for a global campaign against fowl cruelty. "The dolls were seized by customs officials when they arrived in the Philippines via U.S.-based package carrier UPS," the Hong Kong-based group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), said in a statement released by its Manila office. PETA said it was hoping to use the sex dolls in its campaign against Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) for abuses of chickens. "The sex dolls would...

    Waynesville, N.C. -- At least six men came to western North Carolina, some from as far away as South America, to have their genitals mutilated in what police described Friday as a sadomasochistic "dungeon." Three men have been charged with illegal castration in the case, Haywood County Sheriff Tom Alexander and District Attorney Michael Bonfoey said. The sheriff and prosecutor said the victims were willing participants in the procedures. The men met through a Web site produced in North Carolina that published photographs of men engaging in sadomasochistic behavior at a house in Waynesville. . . .

    The Ohio High School Athletic Association apologized to football player Bobby Martin of Colonel White High in Dayton after the referees barred him from a September game because he was not wearing the required shoes and knee pads. Martin was born without legs and plays on the punt return team, moving quickly around the field with his arms. An OHSAA official said the referees were just being overly cautious, but Martin said, "That's the first time in 17 years" that someone had made him feel disabled.

    LAKELAND, Florida, October 17, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A homosexual man has been charged with arson and insurance fraud after setting fire to a home that both he and his homosexual lover lived in. Christopher Michael Robertson, 23, made the arson appear to be a hate crime, by spray painting “die fag” on the home’s steps before setting the building ablaze. The derogation was an apparent attempt to scare the man’s homosexual partner, Paul Day, away.
