  1. Democrats calling for “boycott” of Benghazi investigation. Oddly, they didn’t allow Republicans to do that with Watergate in the 70s. Why is that? Are they that corrupt and shameless? Trick question!

  2. Pistol Pete says:

    The M777 Howitzer – Record Shot Kills Taliban
    On February 12, 2012 the longest operational artillery shot in U.S. Marines history was fired from a M777 Howitzer. Marines dropped the 155mm M982 Excalibur round on Taliban insurgents 36 km away — more than 22 miles — in Helmand province, Afghanistan. It killed the group of Taliban fighters.

    just thought somebody might enjoy this.

  3. It’s totally expected that she would try to whitewash having Vince Foster killed before her coronation, but this is just creepy. She forgot to ever call Vince’s wife after his death, but now she remember minutiae about how he’d made a future appointment with a shrink for his “problem” and what week it was. Sure, Hillary. Next you’ll be talking to Oprah about how Ron Brown hated to fly.

      And what a coincidence that the families of all passengers and crew from Ron Brown’s flight wanted the remains cremated before they had a chance to receive the bodies.

  4. Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Bishop of the Episcopal church DIVORCES!

    Gene Robinson, the first openly gay Bishop of the Episcopal church, publicly announced he is divorcing his husband, Mark Andrew, on May 3.

    The couple had been married since 2010, when New Hampshire legalized gay marriage. The union created an international uproar, and many Episcopalians broke away from the main church.

    “As you can imagine, this is a difficult time for us – not a decision entered into lightly or without much counseling,” Robinson wrote in a letter to the Diocese of New Hampshire. “We ask for your prayers, that the love and care for each other that has characterized our relationship for a quarter century will continue in the difficult days ahead.”

    The retired bishop left his wife and two children when he openly declared he was gay in 1986. He entered into a civil union with Andrew in 2008.

    In 2012, the Episcopal Church voted to allow bishops to permit priests to bless same-sex marriages.

    Robinson, 66, is currently a fellow at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C.


    Well here we go again.
    the Abortion Care Network sponsored a video contest. The aim of the videos submitted was to “bust the stigma” so let me take a shot from the hip at this.
    Woman plots (most likely without the knowledge of the male involved) to get pregnant.
    Woman continues plot to go through with premeditated murder (for the sake of a contest) of an innocent child.
    Woman carries out murder of her own unborn innocent child.
    Woman then, with all the other righteous murderers of innocent children, wants to prove to the world how perfectly normal and RIGHT it is to be a murderer of innocent children.
    Woman proclaims to be God! .” I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby, that I can make a life”!

    Note to woman!
    I don’t know who you are! I don’t want to know who you are! God does and that is all that matters to me. But from me, you and all the rest of the likes of you would be better off with a millstone around your neck and thrown into the water!!! Because you lead children astray and you will always be guilty of that from that day forward! Take note woman! the killing of innocent children will NEVER be okay! There are natural laws written on every mans heart which you will never escape from! I don’t care what society votes or says is okay, they are fools as well. This one reason alone will keep your murderous video just that, a murder that was premeditated and carried out on the fruit of your womb!
    Second Note: I hope you LGBT or whatever you call yourselves today are reading this! It applies to you as well!!!!! REPENT your vile selves and know that God is Merciful!!! Note to self: I gotta work on that mercy thing cause I’m sure glad I’m not God! Love the sinner and HATE the sin!!!!

  6. Hey does this make you feel old???

      First off, that is a sweet percussion set up. Aw man, is nice!
      Second, and amazing job! A lot of people underestimate how mentally diciplined you have to be to play percussion without totally screwing yourself up. After the human voice, percussion (esp with multiple istruments to switch between and play at the same time with different patterns) is the most sensitive the the slightest change in a person’s state of mine. The smallest distraction, or over-focus on anything, will derail everything.

      This kid did an amazing job!

      No, but it does make me grateful I’m not his neighbor.
