Joke of the Day

Ralph and Edna were both patients in a mental hospital.

One day while they were walking past the

hospital swimming pool, Ralph suddenly jumped into the deep end.

He sank to the bottom of the pool and stayed there.

Edna promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled
him out. When the Head Nurse Director became aware of Edna’s heroic act
she immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as she
now considered her to be mentally stable. read more

One Way for an Illegal Alien to Come Out of the Shadows

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We’ve all heard the identity theft commercials from companies like LifeLock. When you pull up their site, you are treated to the following: “1 in 4 People Have Experienced Identity Theft.”

And they ain’t just whistling Dixie. Several years ago, I too was one of the unfortunate 1 in 4 Identity theft victims. I guess, I should be more specific. Thankfully my identity wasn’t stolen, but one of my bank accounts was hacked and virtually cleaned out in short order. I felt very angry and violated. I still don’t how it occurred, but thank heavens it hasn’t happened again.

So I feel for anyone else who has experienced it. But that was really nothing compared to a true identity theft. Identity theft is as the name describes, where someone can literally become you, for all intents and purposes. And it’s becoming much more common, which is why companies like LifeLock are in demand.

In cases of true identity theft , it can take years, even decades to clear your name completely and in some cases it never happens.

One such hard-case is that of a clean cut, model American citizen from Grand Prairie Texas, Marcus Calvillo who was in his early 20s when his problems began. He is now 46. read more

Supernova Explodes With the Force of 100 Million Suns

Astronomers have discovered signs of a massive stellar explosion 30 million years ago that would have produced the equivalent force of millions of suns blowing up all at once.

The ancient star would have ballooned to 200 times the size of the sun and the epic blast would have spewed out material into the universe at 36 million kilometres an hour (22.4 million mph).

Researchers believe that their analysis of the supernova, which has been visible in the night sky since 2013, can teach us more about the violent deaths of stars in the universe.

My WND Weekly Exclusive

Is it time for Israel to kick them all out?

 Frankly, if it were up to me, I’d kick them all out. It’s evident none of the Arabs who surround Israel want peace with the Jewish nation, and all at one time or another have refused even to recognize its existence.

Since its founding in 1948, the state of Israel has always wanted peace with its Arab neighbors. It is the Arab nations who have been threatening, provoking or outright warring with them.

To prove this to be so, one need only ask him or herself: If the Arabs all laid down their arms tomorrow, what would Israel do? Of course, nothing. They would live in peace. Now ask yourself if Israel did the same, what the Arabs would do. They would attack the following day, if they waited that long. This is all one needs to know about the dynamics of the region. read more

Bodyguards for Plant

Its attractive red berries, succulent leaves and brightly colored flowers might look like a tasty snack for a hungry herbivore.

But while the berries of the bittersweet nightshade already hold enough poison to put off even the most enthusiastic of grazers, it seems the plant also has another trick to defend itself – ant bodyguards.

The bittersweet nightshade, also called Solanum dulcamara, produces a sugary nectar directly from wounds inflicted on its leaves by animals chewing on them in a bid to attract ants.

A poisonous woodland plant called bittersweet nightshade has been found to 'bled' a sugary nectar from wounds when slugs and insect larvae eat its leaves. These secretions attract three different species of ant (red ants pictured) which attack the herbivores and protect the plant from suffering further damage

One Look at Venezuela Has Convinced Me to Keep Prepping

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Being a Prepper in the land of plenty sometimes seems like utter foolishness yet my kids and I do it anyway.

Now granted – we are not over-the-top, end of civilization Preppers who are preparing for a Zombie apocalypse. I just decided a few years ago to begin storing some things for emergencies. Every week I purchase one or two extra items and put them away.

It’s rather startling what you can amass by just doing that. At times it also comes in rather handy when you forget something at the grocery store. Simply pull it from your own stock and your good – but don’t forget to replace it. My family personally prides itself on never running out of anything, so when we have to pull something out of storage, the penalty is it must be replaced with at least two items.

So why do we do it? It’s because you never know. We aren’t prone to natural disasters in New England but we’ve had to utilize our supplies on more than one occasion due to snow storms and power outages.

And despite the rosy picture painted by our current administration, we should all be concerned with the poor shape of our economy. It won’t take too much to push it over the edge. If by some miracle we are able to contain $20 trillion in debt and almost a quarter of a quadrillion in unfunded liability, then fine – we’ll use it ourselves or give it away.

I’ve thought of giving up prepping, but when I see what is happening in places like the socialist/communist paradise of Venezuela, coupled with millions of our own citizens claiming that socialism would be good for America, I come to my senses. read more

Airman Jones was assigned to the induction center where he was to advise
new recruits about their government benefits, especially their GI insurance.

It wasn’t long before Captain Smith noticed that Airman Jones had almost
a 100% record for insurance sales, which had never happened before.

Rather than ask about this, the Captain stood in the back of the room
and listened to Jones’ sales pitch. read more
