These members of “The Squad” have supported legislation praising the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel and voted...

Aug 04 11:44am @5.1 Well, Sister, if anyone would know about this, it would be you! Question, how do they know if what their blood alcohol level is? And did you ever get your 'We Need Longer Layovers in Cancun'...
Aug 04 11:38am @4.1 I get sea sick, so I am short on options, LOL. 
Aug 04 11:31am @3.1.4 Wally, That is terrifying. 
Aug 04 11:30am @3.1.3 Then if you come to NY, don't land at Laguardia airport. Another really short runway and you end up in the bay. Better to land at JFK. 
Aug 04 11:25am @2.1.2 Dean, My rational mind tells me you are right. My emotions tell me otherwise.  Safe journeys! 
Aug 04 11:24am @3.2 "..." Never a good sign. But think, people got on board boats even upon seeing the Unsinkable Molly Brown.  Perrie will walk to work with Enoch! 
Aug 04 11:06am @2.1 Yeah, I am not a happy flyer either. Just add this to my list. 
Aug 04 11:05am @1.2.1 Indeed! LOL!
Aug 04 11:05am @1.1.1 Wally, I hope you are right. There was a time when it was common for pilots to get loaded before a flight, but I thought we got past that. I am comforted that they were caught, but it is still...
Aug 04 12:45am @1 I wonder how many pilots make it off the ground?

Congressman Elijah Cummings may honestly believe that his district in West Baltimore doesn’t stink.  But it does. I’ve been there, I’ve seen and smelled it. Bernie Sanders  called it “the third world" back in 2016. Sometimes the truth hurts. Especially to those bathed, clothed, and dipped in the intoxication of corrupt power, but that’s why sunlight is so helpful. And...

Our world is getting warmer. This we know. Just look at Alaska, which experienced all-time record heat in July, topping out at 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Dozens of other cities are in the throes of a heat wave this week, which forecasters have warned will be “prolonged, dangerous, and potentially deadly.” But how much will temperatures in US cities change by 2050? By then, scientists say...
Aug 03 2:30pm @6.1.19 Nerm, I think we are all in agreement in that we should be working towards a solution on how to reduce, not only our greenhouse gasses but also the rubbish we make. But again, this does fall under...

By   Elisha Fieldstadt Firefighters in Massachusetts, along with backup responders, spent two hours Thursday freeing a raccoon that had gotten stuck in a storm grate. The Newton Fire Department   tweeted a picture   of the critter with its head sticking out of one of the grate's holes, and its paws grasping adjacent bars to support himself. Newton Fire Lt. Phil McCully told...
Aug 03 12:00pm @3.1 Oh man, why are you all down on these little guys? I thought it was an adorable story. 
Aug 03 11:58am @1.1.5 I have lots of raccoons on my property and the only thing that they do is sometimes manage to open raccoon proof garbage pails.  And we have groundhogs and they are very friendly!
Aug 03 1:30am @1 For the love of animals.  Something that goes beyond partisan politics. Have a tale of your own? Share it!

In 1958 a young guitarist named Link Wray, A Shawnee Indian from rural North Carolina rocked the world with his song ''Rumble''. Rumble was banned because it was said it would create gang violence.  Link is the only person ever to have an instrumental banned... Link introduced the power cord, distortion, and feedback to the rock world...60 years later his contribution is used by all...
Aug 02 10:36pm @10 Most musicians know Link's great contributions to rock and he is an amazing musician and inventor. Hopefully he gets his nomination for the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame. He so deserves it!

Are these really the best and brightest that the Democratic Party has to offer?  It was going to take a monumental effort to top Marianne Williamson’s level of craziness on Tuesday night, but on Wednesday there were several Democratic contenders that gave it their best shot.  Kirsten Gillibrand and Jay Inslee were particularly unhinged, and Joe Biden  “repeatedly stumbled over numbers...

By   Ani Bundel September traditionally marks the beginning of a parade of films looking to garner award nominations. Though there have been a few early contenders so far, like “ Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood” and “ Rocketman ,” most of the films vying for Oscars won’t be in theaters for months. Which is why seeing   the trailer for “The Irishman ” arrive on the final day of July was...
