    The POTUS, Donald J. Trump non-stop, massive campaign rallies in selected, targeted states have yielded massive victories across the board for POTUS, Trump.

    When you are one of the most photographed women in the world like First Lady Melania Trump is, there are only so many times you can wear a dress. Some ensembles are obviously never to be worn again, they are part of a moment in time. Take Mrs. Trump’s Inaugural gown from French-American designer Hervé Pierre. Even if Mrs. Trump wanted to wear the dress again (she never would), she would not be able to as the piece is now a part of the First Lady Smithsonian National Museum of American History collection. Even stand-out, style statements like her recent...

    Tim Allen thinks nothing is more effective at pissing people off than a "very funny conservative." "I like pissing people off, and I said there’s nothing, especially in this area, that pisses people off more than a very funny conservative, a smart, funny conservative that takes shots and is certainly self-effacing," Allen said in an interview with IndieWire about his show "Last Man Standing," in which he plays a conservative-leaning character. "The left-wing point of view is so pervasive that they don’t even realize it’s a point of view. It is just a point of view," he said. "I think...

    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult....

    A Nod to the Man Who Changed It All Al Fritz took a risk and created a bike that had a huge ripple effect ..." After getting nearly taken out by a Japanese mortar in World War II, Al Fritz came home to the states and got a job at Schwinn as a welder. Fritz eventually worked his way off the floor and into management. In the early 60s, word spread from Los Angeles that kids were modifying old Schwinn frames—bolting on Ape Hanger bars and adding other accouterments from early choppers. Fritz made the kind of leap of logic...

    A Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Louisville, Ky., has apologized to a mother who was asked by a manager to cover up while she was breastfeeding her seven-week-old daughter. Sadie Durbin began nursing her infant daughter while she was dining at the American chain restaurant with her family, she wrote in a now-viral Facebook post, when a manager came over and told her to cover up. “David Mitchell, a manager at the Texas Roadhouse on Shelbyville Road, brought me a napkin and tried lying it over my 7 week old nursing infant's face as he explained that he had another patron...

    NASCAR’s Cup Series champion will be decided Sunday when title contenders Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick, Joey Logano and Martin Truex Jr. take the green flag at the season finale. The highest finisher among the four at Homestead-Miami Speedway will earn the trophy. The other 36 drivers in the 40-car field are likely to stay mostly out of the way. Busch is the 2015 champion and has momentum from winning last week at Phoenix. He also has the most coveted pit stall thanks to a controversial decision Saturday.
  • Some advice for those returning to rebuild in the California fire zones.

    11/18/2018 7:59:00 AM PST · by Dupin · 44 replies
    Just a little advice: First, put in an underground fire shelter about 20 feet down. There are companies out there which make very good ones from just the smaller shelters up to the kind one can live in for years if they had to and a couple of hundred thousand dollars added on to rebuilding is a small price to pay for the safety and security those things provide. Imagine simply going underground instead of evacuating to wait a fire out in comfort since one can get power generators as part of the deal. Build a monolithic dome home instead...

    The word ‘mouse’ and ‘juggernaut’ are not usually used in the same sentence, but there is one that defies diminutive description, and, indeed, is a colossal figure: Mickey Mouse. And so, it is apt that a new exhibition in New York City celebrating the iconic character’s 90th anniversary is large as well: 16,000 square feet and ten rooms. ‘Mickey: The True Original Exhibition’ has the warmth of nostalgia coupled with fresh artistic takes on a cartoon character that has become one of the most recognized symbols – the three black overlapping circles of his head – around the world. The...

The 51-year-old from Tonypandy in Rhondda Cynon Taff told Pontypridd County Court the passenger "was built like the late rugby player Jonah Lomu".

    With the new Mystery Science Theater 3000 season hitting Netflix on Thanksgiving, the MST3K Turkey Day marathon comes early this year. Thanksgiving Day is always a big deal for Mystery Science Theater 3000. It’s when the show debuted way back in 1988, it’s when the upcoming MST3K season 12 will debut on Netflix, and it’s when they regularly do their annual Thanksgiving marathon. The fact that it’s going to be the 30 year anniversary of the show helps make it seem like an even bigger deal this year. There’s been an elephant in the room, though. There’s a little too...
