Joke of the Day

A guy comes home from work one day to find his dog with the neighbor’s pet rabbit in his mouth. The rabbit is very dead and the guy panics.

He thinks the neighbors are going to hate him forever, so he takes the dirty rabbit into the house, gives it a bath, blow-dries its fur and puts it back into the cage at the neighbor’s house, hoping that they will think the rabbit died of natural causes. read more

Is San Diego Punishing Border Wall Contractors – or Themselves

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Oh look. Government is picking winners and losers again. What a stunner.

But this time it isn’t the federal government, but one State and several municipalities within this State. If you guessed California, you win absolutely nothing except my admiration and knowledge that you are plugged in. Although certainly my admiration is worth more.

The Washington Free Beacon reports that, “San Diego is the latest city poised to join the list of California municipalities demonstrating their opposition to Trump’s promised border wall by punishing businesses involved in working or even bidding on the wall prototypes or other border-wall projects.”

More and more cities in the Golden State are simply refusing to do business with any company who has or intends to have anything to do with the Southern border wall. If you are a construction company who built a prototype or bid on anything that has to do with Trump’s wall, you will not be allowed to work or even bid on any San Diego city projects. read more

Cancer treatment is often a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul. You may well have some success with chemotherapy, but subsequent damage to otherwise healthy organs and tissue is a trade-off that clinicians and patients have had to juggle with for decades. But, thanks to a chance meeting at the Hudson Institute in Melbourne, lung cancer patients could be looking at more effective chemo with fewer side effects. read more

Joke of the Day

In a small town, two brothers were the terror of their neighborhood. If windows were broke out, they did it. If a mysterious grass fire was started, they did it. If someone’s flowers were stomped on, they did it. Everything bad that happened in that town could be traced back to those two hell raisers. Nothing their mother would do could control them.

In exasperation, their mother asked the preacher at her church if he knew of any way to calm these two boys down.

The preacher told her, “Send me these boys, but only one at a time.” read more

WND Exclusive – Why Today’s ‘Democratic Socialism’ is a Myth

Everywhere you look there is something pertaining to the rise of socialism in this country, assuming you’re a political geek like me. It’s surreal. Understandable, but still surreal.

Many of the younger generation have been convinced that unjust economic inequality is rampant in this country. They’ve been conditioned that one must attend college to achieve anything – and not just any college. One must attend the most elite, and therefore most expensive, university they are able. The debt consequences of this are devastating to many. read more

Virgin Galactic’s manned spaceplane has hit another milestone, breaking Mach 2 as it roared into the mesosphere. With test pilots Dave Mackay and Mike “Sooch” Masucci at the controls, VSS Unity was released from the mothership VMS Eve at an altitude of 46,500 ft (14,200 m) before firing its hybrid rocket engine for 42 seconds to power it to 170,800 ft (32.3 mi, 52 km) and a speed of Mach 2.47 (1,832 mph, 2,948 km/h). read more

Hypocrisy Reigns at Eugene Lang College

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

According to the Princeton Review, “Eugene Lang College is an ‘unconventional,’ highly urban school with few academic requirements where courses have ‘really long poetic titles’ and professors ‘go by their first names.’” Yeah I’d pay well north of $20K a year for that – wouldn’t you, you groovy hipster? And we wonder why young adults can’t find decent paying jobs after graduating college. Because they graduate with worthless degrees by taking courses like “queer ecologies.”

This upcoming semester, the college will offer this four-credit course entitled, “Queer Ecologies.” The course is said to be, “for students who wish to ‘disrupt prevailing heterosexist discursive and institutional articulations of sexuality and nature.’” Yep – that’s a really long poetic title all right, which means absolutely nothing to most but sure does sound edumicated, don’t it. I swear. I think they just purposely string a bunch of multi-syllabic words together to make them sound erudite. And the more confusing it is, the more high-brow it must be. read more

Video Podcast – Korean War Remains Returned – GDP Growth

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The remains of multiple of U.S. troops killed in the Korean War more than six decades ago are headed back to America now after North Korean officials turned them over to military officials, the White House announced Thursday night. In all, 55 cases of remains were return so far.

And you probably noticed the United Nations banner wrapped around the crates rather than the American flag. There’s a reason for that. It ain’t a good one, but it’s America’s fault. More precisely, it’s an American President’s fault.

And let’s talk GDP growth, and why it may end up being a problem. Why? Three words: The Federal Reserve. read more
