Joke of the Day

A young man, who was also an avid golfer, found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured that if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in 9 holes before he had to head home.

Just as he was about to tee off, an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able to say no, he allowed the old man to join him.

To his surprise, the old man played fairly quickly. He didn’t hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn’t waste much time. read more

The Left Should be Tried for Inciting Violence

Growing up – most of us were taught that sticks and stones will break our bones, but words can never hurt us. Well, not anymore.

Words, we are told, lead to violence, and on college campuses, it seems words are violence itself.

Although I don’t subscribe to this view, I suppose some can think it true in some instances. It certainly happened in the much publicized case of the then teenage girl who convinced her teenage boyfriend to off himself by means of a car (or truck) exhaust.

We on the right say that this is ridiculous. It may have been the girl’s prodding, but it was the boy’s choice and only his, to act on her insistences. No one forced him to listen to her blather. No one forced him to act.

He and he alone is responsible for his actions – not her. But of course we know by now that this is not how it went down. The girl was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, for talking the weak-willed boy into action. Pathetic!

In a real world filled with reasonable people, this case would have never seen the light of day. A judge would have tossed it out telling the plaintiff to grow up. It was no ones fault but his own. read more

Since it was introduced in 1976, well over a thousand of BAE Systems’ Hawk trainer jets have entered service in 18 countries around the world. Now the latest variant, the Advanced Hawk, has taken to the air for the first time in the skies over Warton, Lancashire, UK in demonstrator form. Boasting a new wing design and a revamped cockpit, the Anglo-Indian two-seater is intended to train pilots to handle fifth-generation combat aircraft. read more

Joke of the Day

On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts.

‘One for you, one for me One for you, one for me,’ said one boy. Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence.

Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, ‘One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me.’

He just knew what it was. He jumped back on his bike and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along.

‘Come here quick,’ said the boy, ‘you won’t believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up the souls.’ read more

WND Exclusive – ‘Petro Pete’ fights Warmist Wackos in Gov’t Schools

Leftist global-warming nuts are angry that someone else is daring to compete with them at their own propaganda game.

It’s just not fair, say the warmist wackos. We all know man-caused global warming is a reality. For the good of the planet, no one is allowed to dispute it, nor promote a differing opinion.

But according to the Fiscal Times, who sympathize with the lefty warming crazies, another group is not only challenging the set-in-stone fact, but is having success in convincing American children that man-caused warming is a myth. And worse – they are advancing the notion that the use of coal, oil and gas is actually a good thing. read more

Joke of the Day

On the last day of kindergarten, all the children brought presents for their teacher.
The florist’s son handed the teacher a gift.

She shook it, held it up and said, “I bet I know what it is – it’s some flowers!”

“That’s right!” shouted the little boy.

Then the candy store owner’s daughter handed the teacher a gift.

She held it up, shook it and said. “I bet I know what it is – it’s a box of candy!” read more

London Vehicle Attacker Osborne is a Tool of ISIS

Ramadan, the Muslim Holy Month is soon coming to a close. And what a month it has been – record setting in fact. There have been more deaths and more casualties in 2017 than any Ramadan month prior. In fact, as Breitbart writes, that deaths have more than tripled that of 2016 and injuries have doubled. They have been kind enough to add a timeline, chronicling daily attacks from the start of Ramadan, and will update attacks daily until the close on June 24. I invite everyone to view it by clicking on the link above. It’s rather remarkable.

Then there is the singular event, which has attracted so much press attention, of the whack-job white guy in London who used a van to mow down several Muslims exited a Mosque. Of the incident, the Atlantic penned a piece entitled, “An Attack From the ISIS Playbook.”

They’re right about that. No doubt this dirtbag Darren Osborne got the idea of using a vehicle from the recent Islamist attacks. However, the liberal Atlantic added a subtitle to the piece which reads, “The London attack seems to fit with a pattern of growing attacks on Muslims—both in Europe and in the United States.”

They write that the attack by the white guy in London was “right out of the ISIS playbook,” for the following reasons. “The attacker was a man, apparently acting alone. He took as his weapon a simple van, ramming it into people in an attempt to kill them. And he obeyed the command from ISIS spokesman Abi al-Hassan al-Muhajer to strike civilian targets in the West during the holy month of Ramadan.” read more
