  • Opinion: Trump’s hands too small to handle North Korea alone
    Written by
    Opinion: Trump’s hands too small to handle North Korea alone Addressing the United Nations for the first time, Donald Trump’s mouth brought the nuclear threat level to its highest point since the Cold War. Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea if it continues its pursuit of nuclear weaponry capable of attacking American soil and said he wouldn’t hesitate to act alone. He should hesitate, however. Dictators with Dicks: The Age-old Problem We’ve known this to be Trump’s stance since the featherweight, dick-measuring contest began between “Tiny Hands” Trump and North Korean dictator “Rocket Man” Kim Jong-un. Trump said Kim was on a suicide mission during his address to the…

  • Study: Bald Men ARE Sexy
    Written by
    Study: Bald Men ARE Sexy A recent study reports bald men are found to be more attractive, confident and dominant. For years I’ve been urging listeners and patients to embrace their receding their hairline and shave their heads rather than struggling to maintain their precious locks. So many men who’ve donned the clean-shaven look have overshadowed their hairy competitors. Just look at Bruce Willis (image above). Now a study out of the University of Pennsylvania confirms that people find bald men more attractive. Researchers asked male and female college students to rate attractiveness, confidence and dominance after viewing pictures of men with hair and then…

  • The Message that Americans Will Be Forced to Receive
    Written by
    The Message that Americans Will Be Forced to Receive Are We talking about The Same President that Today's Conservatives are Propping up, or Someone else? Things are Not Lining Up! “Prevention is better than cure!” You would think that the way today's conservatives (yesterday's liberals) are propping up Donald Trump and what he is really doing that they are talking of someone else. Yet, they are not! This is why it is so important to pay attention to what our representatives do rather than what they say (Matthew 7:16). The man and the office are the same. The political photo ops are taking place across the country with the…

  • Opinion: Molitor deserves extension with Twins
    Written by
    Opinion: Molitor deserves extension with Twins With the Minnesota Twins collecting just their fourth walkoff win of the season at Target Field, Wednesday night, they are two games ahead of the Los Angeles Angels for the second Wild Card spot in the American League. They could now become the first team ever to make the playoffs having lost more than 100 games the previous year. The Twins have a 60 percent chance to make the playoffs given that seven of their last 17 games are against the hapless Detroit Tigers. I wrote about how these Twins could be the biggest underdog overachievers of all time, but…

  • The Disney-Lucasfilm, "Director Shuffle," continues as JJ Abrams takes over Star Wars Episode IX.
    Written by
    The Disney-Lucasfilm, "Director Shuffle," continues as JJ Abrams takes over Star Wars Episode IX. JJ Abrams taking over writing and directing duties on Episode IX from ousted helmsman Colin Trevorrow is not exactly surprising. Citing, “creative differences” Lucasfilm sent Trevorrow packing, which makes him the fourth time Disney has hired a director -- had said director work on their Star Wars project (for years!) and then fired said director. That’s six feature films, four fired directors and two fired screenwriters. To be honest, the removal of a screenwriter is nothing new; however, the removal of a director is rare and the removal of a director after shooting some, if not most of the production…

    Written by
    Larry King Admits to Battling Early Stage Lung Cancer Media giant, Larry King, reveals he underwent surgery this summer to treat lung cancer.

King suffered a heart attack in 1987 and hadn’t smoked since. Prior to quitting he had been smoking…

  • When did ballplayers get so soft?
    Written by
    When did ballplayers get so soft? Boston Red Sox starting pitcher David Price, backed by some members of his team, humiliated NESN broadcaster Dennis Eckersley on the team’s chartered plane because Eckersley uttered the word “yuck” in response to Boston pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez’s poor stats that were displayed onscreen during the broadcast of a Red Sox game. This was originally published at FoulPlaybyPlay.com, a community of foul-mouthed sports broadcasters and bloggers. Price’s ire with Eckersley has been apparently building because Eckersley rarely visits the clubhouse. But Eckersley’s job isn’t to buddy-up with the Boston Red Sox. His job is to provide entertaining, insightful commentary during games,…

    Should You Have the Right to Die? We pride ourselves as Americans in our lifestyle choices. The right to freedom of choice, protecting our individual assertion of free will, and deciding just how we want to live our lives. And yes, we have the right to excess. You can live a gluttonous life by overindulging in many personal hazards. You know smoking causes lung cancer, but making a personal decision to smoke is your right. Drinking in access leads to a number of health concerns, but that’s your choice. Obesity by overeating? Not good, but no law can legally restrain your decision to carry too much weight.…
