Joke of the Day

A physician at the mental hospital determined it was time to release his best patient. The young man had been in analysis for a decade.

The patients family showed up for the big day, blue skies and sunshine, smiles all around.

The mood was broken by the sound of a lady’s scream, “My birds have escaped, they’re in that tree.” read more

A Half Time Void of Social Justice

Well, the Super Bowl has once again, come and gone, and my New England Patriots have won their gazillioninth big game. Tough break to all you haters.

But did anyone give a single thought to Colin Kaepernick or his dopey, take a knee for social justice, during the game?

The overwhelming majority of those who watched would, I’m sure, admit that the thought never entered their minds.

One of those at the party I attended did mention it, but only in passing. When the Pipless Gladys Knight sang the National Anthem, the sideline cameras panned over the players who were all dutifully standing side by side. Many stood with their eyes closed, many with hands over their hearts, and a few singing along, but all stood.

One of my friends simply asked if everyone was standing. We all confirmed that to be the case, and that, as they say, was that. There was no need for further comment or discussion. read more

A new technique has been used to turn ordinary metals into “metallic wood” with a greatly improved strength-to-weight ratio. By manipulating materials at the atomic scale, scientists from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Engineering and Applied Science, the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign, and the University of Cambridge claim to have created a sheet of nickel that is as strong as titanium, but up to five times lighter. read more

WND Exclusive – The New left is Just Plagiarizing the Old

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

For years, we on the right have been searching for a term that adequately identifies the far left, or radical left. We see it every year; they lurch further toward the radical, and their political class must follow or get steamrolled.

So is there a term that is further left than the “far” left, or the “radical” left? If there isn’t currently, perhaps we should begin crafting one – and sooner than later. I say this because the current crop of leftists appear to be far afield from where they were and how they presented themselves just a decade ago or less.

In 2008, the Democratic Party campaign platform stated that, “we cannot continue to allow people to enter the United States undetected, undocumented and unchecked,” and that those who “enter our country’s borders illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law.” read more

Podcast – College Professor Suspended for Enforcing Rules

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

This past November, an incident occurred at the University of Texas, San Antonio. A student, Paige Burgess, who just happened to be black, was escorted out a lecture hall by campus police.

She was evidently being disruptive in class and putting her feet up on the chairs in front of her. Her biology professor, Anita Moss, who just happened to be white, had warned her, and the entire class, of such behavior – keep their feet of the chairs, talking to one another during lectures, cell phones, etc., and to “be respectful in class.”

No disciplinary action was taken toward the student, but the professor was suspended … twice for merely attempting to enforce the school’s rules. read more

Mad Money Calls Out Fauxahontas

from NewsBusters:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., defended her call for an “ultra-millionaires” annual wealth tax as “how the system is supposed to operate,” and “part of the social contract” of America in a CNBC interview.

Wait, since when did wealth redistribution and punishing the wealthiest by instituting a new tax to take $2.75 trillion away from them for what they’ve accumulated become part of the “social contract” of the U.S.? read more

Airport parking sucks, but a little French robot parking valet wants to make it better for everyone. After successful trials in Paris and Lyon, the Stan autonomous parking system is on its way to Gatwick, London – and it looks like a terrific idea. read more

Transgenderism Intolerant of Feminism

from the American Spectator:

Julia Beck’s voice quavered with emotion and she seemed on the brink of tears as she neared the end of her presentation Monday. “We are losing an entire generation of sisters to this madness,” she said. “That’s why it’s personal. It’s infuriating. It’s devastating. And I have had enough.”

A radical lesbian feminist, Ms. Beck spoke these words at a place she once never imagined she’d be — a seventh-floor auditorium at the conservative Heritage Foundation — as part of a panel discussing “this madness” of transgender ideology.
