FYI, Lindsay Lohan is a drug addict. She shoplifted a necklace and got into car crashes.

Yet, today, she walks the earth free as a bird.

Did you know that Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson Was a Muscle-Bound Wrestler???


Tyson still wrestled competitively deep into his Ph.D. progress, even if it meant sacrificing his free time. To show you the level of commitment this guy had to both astrophysics and pinning muscular dudes to the ground, he says at one point he tried to create a new wrestling hold based on "a phenomenon in orbital mechanics called a double tidal lock," but he could never get it to work.


Behold Little League Sensation, Mo'Ne Davis,

Who Is She? Mo’Ne Davis, right-handed pitcher for the Taney Dragons, the Little League Mid-Atlantic champions.

Where Is She From? Philadelphia.

What Makes Her So Special? Well, she’s really good at baseball. On Friday, she got the save in Taney’s 6-5 regional semifinal win over Colonie, New York. Two days later, she threw a three-hit complete-game shutout in the final to send her team to the Little League World Series in Williamsport.

A Girl Did That? Girls Play Youth Baseball at This Level? Sure they do. One of the other Mid-Atlantic semifinalists, perennial powerhouse Toms River, New Jersey, had a girl on its team as well. It’s rare, but not unheard of, for a girl to play in the Little League World Series. Seventeen girls, including six Americans, have played in the LLWS before.

What’s Her Game in 50 Words or Fewer? Power. Davis takes advantage of the high strike that gets called in Little League by throwing a fastball that sits in the upper 60s and can touch 70 mph. She offsets that with a nice off-the-table curve when she gets ahead in the count.

Did You Say 70 mph? Yes


Finally, something decent comes out Philly.

Shouldn't the NFL, College Football, MMA Fighting, and Boxing all be banned?

It's been demonstrated through study after study of the health hazards to the performers in these sports. Performers in these sports have died early deaths and suffered from major brain trauma.

Or is it because this form of entertainment does not involve sex, then people don't really care.

Ever see a TV show or movie or song that completely answers an issue in your life?

This scene from the TV show, "Louie", did just that. It directly addressed and helped me with a major personal issue in my life:

"No. I have not been in the sprinkles. What makes you say that?"

Would you accept this deal? No taxes on corporations at all in exchange for....

1. No govt subsidies nor rebates to any corp.
2. No corp. campaign contributions to any political party, candidate, nor interest group.
3. To make up for the lost tax revenue, higher individual tax rates on the very wealthy.

Would you take it?

If Corporations are people and If their Head Quarters are abroad and If they work in the U.S.

doesn't that make Corporations undocumented workers?

Is the media hyping up international conflicts to hurt Obama and promote the neo-con agenda?

With the war in Gaza, ISIS in Iraq, the conflict in the Ukraine, and Iran, the media is promoting the narrative that the world is in the worst turmoil that it's ever been, and the reason for this is that America has become isolationist since the Iraq war and is not fulfilling its role as the world's super power.

This narrative has a two-fold purpose: (1) damages Obama politically and sets up a big Republican mid-term win in November and (2) lays the ground work for the return of the neo-con agenda of American military intervention overseas into these conflict zones.

American corporate media is adroit at getting policy into action even when the American people don't support it.

Delta to offer free entertainment on U.S. flights

Delta Air Lines (DAL) says it will offer free movies,


Here's the catch. All of the free movies are Adam Sandler movies, and you have to pay a fee to turn them off.
