Currently, I have none. Haha.
I want to make something special for my partner because it is his birthday. I am an ok cook but nothing too complicated. Any suggestions from the DL foodies? We are not fussy eaters.
Someone recently mentioned to me a film called "The Babadook" and told me to check it out. Having never heard a single thing about it, I rented it and was stunned. A really exceptionally good horror movie. So, it got me thinking. What other horror gems are out there that get next to no attention? Does anyone have any cool suggestions?
They say "Hey" instead. They never seem to teach non-Americans this. I'm always surprised.
Really? Yes, really. Harry Connick, Jr. has moment with a contestant who felt "disrespected". Jennifer Lopez does her best to help contestant understand what being a performer is all about.
One of my best friends is now pregnant. She has decided to do next to no reading on parenting beforehand, relying instead on doctors' and family advice, and good common sense. I, however, decided to do a little research of my own. I have barely begun reading up, and oh my God; it seems like Hell on Earth! Not just childbirth, but so much of parenting sounds like absolute torture. Case in point. THE WOMAN SHITS HERSELF. Just like that. She fucking defecates right in front of the doctor and the nurses and her poor husband just as everyone is staring right at her between-the-legs area. Just for that, I would never, even if I could. Which I can't. Because I am a guy. But I would never. What other unspeakable horrors await my poor, fun, beautiful friend?
What do the gays really think of it in light of what happened with the Miami doctor who killed himself. Personally, I feel like unless it is medically necessary, for example a car accident victim, cleft palette, etc I don't like it. I don't think I would ever go out with a guy who had any work done that was visible. I also find women who have had a lot of work done to be very shallow and consumed with their looks at any cost. It is disturbing to me when I hear men and women in my office in NYC talking about their sons and daughters old enough that they can FINALLY get their nose jobs. These are teenagers! What?
I went to school with Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, but don't hold that against me. I knew him and his brothers and they were good guys, but frankly not the stars they honestly believed they were. He was an ok singer and a passable guitarist, but there was another kid in our school was was brilliant. He pursued music receiving a scholarship to study music and worked with some well known Canadian artists before they became well known. Today he's working in his fathers garage fixing cars and playing music on the weekends, while Kroeger is internationally famous. What's the difference between these two? Why did the mediocre cover band become famous hit makers, while the guy with genuine talent fall by the wayside?
I really miss the characters: Erica, Kendall, JR. ABC really ruined the show. The online version was pretty good. Cheap, but good.
I keep hearing all of these stories of people being priced out of NYC. That rents and mortgages are skyrocketing for people who make a good living, but not in the one percenter category. So what's the real story? Are you still paying your rent/mortage? Can you still live a good life and save a few pennies each month?
CNNMoney (New York) April 16, 2015 Wikileaks on Thursday published a searchable database of every Sony email and document that was stolen by hackers last year. The U.S. government blamed North Korea for the hack that destroyed computers at Sony Pictures, temporarily shut down the movie studio and exposed embarrassing emails from top executives. It even resulted in Sony Pictures Entertainment's co-chairman Amy Pascal's resignation. These files have already existed online, hosted on computers around the world. But now they're easy to find on Wikileaks.org. WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange justified the tactic this way: "This archive shows the inner workings of an influential multinational corporation," he wrote in a statement. "It is newsworthy and at the centre (sic) of a geopolitical conflict. It belongs in the public domain. WikiLeaks will ensure it stays there." In a statement, Sony blasted Wikileaks: "The cyber-attack on Sony Pictures was a malicious criminal act, and we strongly condemn the indexing of stolen employee and other private and privileged information on WikiLeaks," a spokeswoman said. "We vehemently disagree with WikiLeaks' assertion that this material belongs in the public domain."
Before 9/11, it was the largest terrorist act on U.S. soil. There were 168 people killed, 19 of them were children, and over 680 injured survivors. Circa 324 building were damaged and 86 cars were destroyed. Over 650 million in damages. Probably the saddest thing of all is that the truth still hasn't come out. It was not just a domestic terrorist act. There was an Al Qaeda cell in Oklahoma City, a fact uncovered by a local reporter. The FBI knew this information and did nothing. There were multiple bombs and not just the one truck bomb. And there's evidence the authorities were warned in advanced that it would occur and simply allowed it to happen. Not to mention the existence of additional suspects, such as John Doe #2, who were sighted by dozens of witnesses working with Timothy McVeigh. It's believed the reason why these individuals may have been government agents, which is why the cover-up of the government claiming that such individuals never existed and that the witnesses were simply mistaken. Finally, there is the matter of all the videos, videos that clearly show Timothy McVeigh working with John Doe #2, that the government has refused to release to the public.

1. DO NOT say "I don't like to let other people work in" or "I like to work out by myself" when someone asks you to work in on a machine/bench you're using. DO let the person work in with you. 2. DO NOT change the channel of the TV that's playing in the weight room, especially if it's sports. And certainly don't change it to House Hunters International on HGTV. DO leave it as is, or if you must change it, ask others in the weight room if it's ok and make sure you change it to another sporting event. 3. DO NOT wander aimlessly on the gym floor looking in awe at all the machines and weights, like a flyover tourist staring at all the tall buildings in NYC. I and other gym vets are on a mission at the gym. We know what body part we're there to train and which machines/weights we need to use. You're clueless wandering takes time away from completing that mission. DO come to the gym with a mission each day and a decent idea of how you want to complete that mission. 4. DO NOT stand next to the water fountain and chat with your gurl friend about Lady Gaga or the Beverly Hills housewives. Again, we are on a timed mission, and your blocking the fountain in order to make inane chatter screws up our timing. DO take your stupid conversation somewhere else. 5. DO NOT make mindless chit chat with me or anyone. I don't give a rat's ass that you hate your job or that you got a great deal on your new gym membership for your new year's resolution. I am there to work out, not to hear about your dull, pointless little life. DO not talk to anyone unless it's about weight training and supplements. 6. DO NOT take a flat bench, place it the narrow aisle, and park your ass on it to adjust your ipod settings. This is pure stupidity. Not only is it dangerous, but you're using a bench for a trivial activity that could be used constructively by someone wanting to lift weights. DO stand in the corner if you must play with your ipod. 7. DO NOT lazily leave the weights on the barbell when you're done, or leave dumbbells on the floor to create an obstacle course. DO restock all weights when you're done. 8. DO NOT leave a bench without wiping it down, especially if you're coughing and sneezing all over it. DO take a power towel and the sanitizer provided and wipe down the bench. 9. DO NOT take up a full bench with your belongings in the locker room. Bench space is limited, and hogging a bench is just impolite. DO take a portion for the bench for yourself, leaving some room for another member to place his belongings on. 10. DO NOT stare at me on the gym floor. Yes, I work hard on my body and I understand the need to ogle, but this is a gym, not a bar. Save it for Boxers or the Eagle, or whereever it is you go to meet men. DO subtlely take a few peeks, if you must stare. 11. DO NOT even attempt to have sex with me in in the sauna or steam if you don't have a good body. You've been warned. Again, I work hard on my physique, and I only hook up with guys who are similarly dedicated to their bodies. DO hook up with the other out of shape trolls and leave the hot guys for each other. 12. DO NOT leave your jizz soaked towels on the sauna or steam floor. That's absolutely repulsive and reflects your character. DO toss them in the laundy receptacles when you're done taking care of business. That's what they're there for.
THE AFTERMATH Starring... Kim Richards (What's she up to now?: A few bottles of vodka, most likely a few more bottles of pills, a lawsuit, a relapse, a scandal, estranged relatives, and a killer dog MIA. Whew! This little spitfire is taking on too much drama! In all seriousness, though, please get well soon, Kim! We all know that at the center, there's a heart of gold. No, really.) Kim Richards (What's she up to now?: Still estranged from Kim after Fingergate--and maybe not too happy with Kathy either--but still trying to pick up the billions of shards. Just don't get cut, sweetie. Cuts can get infected.) Lisa Rinna (What's she up to now?: Schlepping schmatta to QVC for a few more shekels until the next Bravo paycheck. She's also sending Twitter love to Kim. Uh, sure baby.) Eileen Davidson (What she up to now?: F*cking DOOL bitches up as the evil Kristen DiMera. She'll also be starring as the President of the United States alongside Jamie Lee Curtis in the upcoming flick, Spychosis. How's that for Revenge?) Yolanda Foster (What's she up to now?: In bed somewhere, watching time tick by. In all seriousness, though, please get well soon, Yolanda!) Brandi Glanville (What's she up to now?: Same shit, different cock, different bottle of booze.) Lisa Vanderpump (What's she up to now?: Getting ready for the series debut of her new show featuring her new bar, Pump. Name suggestion: Vanderpump Tools. Heh.) with... Bravo Execs busily making casting decisions for Season 6. It'll be a doozy!
"Finally, a moisturizer I can live with!" "I love that color." "I've had enough to eat today." I caught myself saying to a contractor just yesterday when he said he would be the one doing the maintenance on one of the new things, "Oh good. We'll be able to see you more often"
An upcoming book about the Clintons’ foreign donors has whipped the media into a frenzy. After presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) teased for weeks that the book contained scandalous revelations about Hillary Clinton’s actions in the State Department, many in the media are asserting its contents could “derail her campaign.” Clinton Cash, by former Bush speechwriter and Breitbart.com contributor Peter Schweizer, is billed as a game-changer for Clinton’s candidacy, revealing that the Clinton State Department traded favors for big donations to the Clinton Foundation and speaking fees for Bill Clinton. “The author, Peter Schweizer, says he has evidence of a pay-to-play scheme,” Fox News’ Sean Hannity noted. ThinkProgress obtained an advance copy of Clinton Cash, which will be released May 5. Schweizer makes clear that he does not intend to present a smoking gun, despite the media speculation. The book relies heavily on timing, stitching together the dates of donations to the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton’s speaking fees with actions by the State Department. Schweizer explains he cannot prove the allegations, leaving that up to investigative journalists and possibly law enforcement. “Short of someone involved coming forward to give sworn testimony, we don’t know what might or might not have been said in private conversations, the exact nature of the transition, or why people in power make the decision they do,” he writes. Later, he concludes, “We cannot ultimately know what goes on in their minds and ultimately provide the links between the money they took and the benefits that subsequently accrued to themselves, their friends, and their associates.” Though Schweizer is unable to provide direct evidence that State Department actions were influenced by Clinton Foundation donations, he does raise questions about unsavory donors and possible conflicts of interest, regardless of whether or not they dictated Clinton’s policy. The book alleges the Clinton Foundation has failed to disclose some of its donors, digging up Canadian tax records as evidence of a $2 million donation from the Fernwood Foundation that Schweizer says went unreported. He also says he found a $40,000 donation in the form of stocks from the Dattels Family Foundation that was listed on their website but not on the Clintons’ donor list. Schweizer also zeroes in on some of the foundation’s voluntarily disclosed but somewhat shady donors, including the Lundin Group, a mining, oil and gas company that was investigated for war crimes in Sudan and has reportedly reaped massive profits in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo. Lundin committed $100 million to the Clinton Foundation shortly after Hillary announced her presidential candidacy in 2007. Schweizer points to a 2006 law co-sponsored by Clinton and Obama, which gave the secretary of state powers to hold destabilizing forces in the DRC accountable, and notes that Clinton declined to employ those powers after Lundin’s donation. Schweizer highlights another large donor to the Clinton Foundation, Saudi Arabia’s second-richest man who supposedly owed his fortune to his relationship with Ethiopia’s government. An Ethiopian American human rights group sent an open letter in 2009 to the Clinton Foundation and the Secretary of State’s Office warning that they believed Amoudi’s huge donation was funneled from the Ethiopian government, as Amoudi was not known for his philanthropy. Another murky practice discussed in the book was the State Department’s use of the special government employee (SGE) rule, which allowed some staffers to simultaneously work for the State Department and non-government organizations, including the Clinton Foundation. The Senate Judiciary Committee is currently investigating Clinton’s use of the SGE after a ProPublica investigation found there were at least 100 State Department employees who worked for other organizations at the same time. Schweizer also fingers Bill Clinton’s speaking fees, a favorite target in conservative circles, as a potential avenue to influence Hillary. He links the timing of the State Department’s generally positive report on the Keystone XL Pipeline with a slew of Clinton speeches paid for by TD Bank, a major shareholder in the project. As proof of how crucial Clinton’s support for the pipeline was to the bank, Schweizer quotes a press release that claimed TD Bank would “begin selling its $1.6 billion worth of shares in the massive but potentially still-born Keystone XL crude pipeline project” after Clinton left office. The press release was quickly revealed to be fake in 2013. Yet Schweizer, apparently unaware of the hoax, remarks, “Too bad for TD Bank. But the Clintons got paid regardless.” As Media Matters has documented, Schweizer has a record of making inaccurate claims, factual errors, and retractions. Much of Clinton Cash also relies on previously reported issues. But the Clinton Foundation’s finances have come under scrutiny ever since President Obama asked the charity to disclose its donors as a condition of Clinton’s appointment as Secretary of State. The foundation also agreed to stop taking contributions from most foreign governments during Clinton’s tenure. Still, media investigations have raised concerns about potential conflicts of interests stemming from the charity’s private donors. Clinton herself dismissed the book as a “distraction.” But the allegations may not go away anytime soon; in an unusual arrangement, several top media outlets have reportedly agreed to further investigate some of the issues raised in the book.
Here's a new thread for lovely Lee
A Texas veterinarian was fired after a Facebook photo showing her with her "first bow kill" -- a local cat -- went viral. Dr. Kristen Lindsey bragged online that she killed a "feral" cat in her neighborhood in Brenham. She posted a photo on Wednesday, which shows her holding up the dead cat by an arrow protruding from its head, according to KBTX. The caption reads: [italic]"My first bow kill, lol. The only good feral tomcat is one with an arrow through it's head! Vet of the year award ... Gladly accepted."[/italic] Lindsey apparently didn't know that the "feral tomcat" she bagged was actually Tiger, a 6-year-old orange Tabby who went missing earlier on Wednesday. A Facebook page titled "Justice For Tiger" was quickly set up and called for Lindsey to be charged with a crime. The page has photos of Tiger as well as a video that the kitty's owner posted to YouTube in November. Lindsey also wasn't aware that she'd be fired on Friday. After the photo went viral, she reportedly posted to Facebook, "No I did not lose my job. Lol. Psshh. Like someone would get rid of me. I’m awesome!" Though she was eventually canned, it wasn't immediately clear whether she'd face criminal charges. Austin County Sheriff Jack Brandes told KBTX that he'd forward the case to the district attorney for review. Tiger's supporters have been lambasting the scorned vet since the news broke. That said, Lindsey does have supporters of her own. Some of her clients visited her clinic to leave flowers, saying she was good at her job. The Texas Veterinary Medical Associated issued a press release condemning the post: [italic]We are saddened and disturbed by the unfortunate actions of this individual, and we remind Texas residents that this conduct is not reflective of the veterinary profession or of the veterinarians who strive to embody the words of the veterinarian’s oath every day. Upon learning of the troubling misconduct, the Brenham clinic where the veterinarian was practicing immediately condemned her actions and terminated her employment. [/italic] Lindsey later removed the post and took down her Facebook page.
Wow, new cast revealed tomorrow on GMA and not a peep from anyone about leaks or guesses. Could this be the last season due to lack of interest?
One of you guys needs to get him drunk so he'll dish the dirt!
Harry Styles isn’t bisexual. Or, at least, he doesn’t think he’s bisexual. The 19-year-old appears on the cover of the September 2013 issue of British GQ, one of five covers featuring the boys of pop group One Direction. When speaking with the magazine, Styles was asked about claims he is bisexual. Questions about the teen singer’s relationship with Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw have been circulating the rumor mill for months. Styles insisted to GQ that he and Grimshaw aren’t dating and are just friends. "Bisexual? Me? I don’t think so," Stiles said. “I’m pretty sure I’m not." The rumors do sometimes bother the British crooner, who used to date country sweetheart Taylor Swift and has most recently been linked to model Kara Rose Marshall. "Some of them are funny," he told GQ of the rumors. “Some of them are ridiculous. Some of them are annoying. I don’t want to be one of those people that complains about the rumours. I never like it when a celebrity goes on Twitter and says, ‘This isn’t true!’ It is what it is; I tend not to do that. The only time it gets really annoying is that if you get into a relationship and you get into a place where you really like someone and then things are being written in the papers that affect them and how they see you. Then it can get annoying." Grimshaw has previously defended his relationship with Styles, saying there is nothing “weird" about it. "It seems totally normal to me: a DJ being mates with a pop star," he told Now magazine back in April. “It’s not like he’s some weirdo who can’t talk. He’s really funny. When anyone meets him, it’s like, ‘Oh yeah, he’s really nice and interesting.’ And they immediately understand." Although he might not be bisexual, Styles has extended some support to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. When anti-gay, quasi-religious group Westboro Baptist Church protested outside a July 19 One Direction concert in Kansas City, Mo., Styles tweeted a simple message in retort, saying he believes in equal rights and that God loves all. Read One Direction’s full interview in the September 2013 issue of British GQ, on newsstands Aug. 1.
Do you think he's changed his politics by now?
At the close of part four discussion had turned to Jon being in Seville and a certain Welsh lad being in Istanbul, so of course we are all wondering if they are still a couple. Who cares, let's focus on Jon shall we?
Makes me wonder.
could all the scandals shake it to the ground? models aren't returning for repeat engagements like they used to it seems
Roger pawns off a project onto Don. Joan goes on a business trip. Peggy and Pete clash over how to deal with an account emergency.
This show fascinates me. Which couples will last? Which will crash and burn? Discuss, please.
....and he doesn't know how to take a selfie. You're no Nick Jonas, Adam ....but call him so he can show you how to take a selfie.
Shades of Best Magnolia Hotel? Generally people around the world are eating more and more spicy foods, things with capsicum peppers but also ginger, turmeric and other spices. What do the gays feel about spice in your life?
He says he's leaving (eventually), and you kind of believe it, but don't want to wait around? Note this topic can apply to almost any orientation or lifestyle that posts on the DL
Where people like dying their hair blonde despite the fact they could never have blonde hair. I find it annoying.
One of the world's most famous fashion designers has appeared to condemn gay men for dressing "homosexual". Giorgio Armani, who has never denied that he is gay, said "a man has to be a man". The outspoken 80-year-old also criticised men who work out too much, saying he does not like muscle. "A homosexual man is a man 100%. He does not need to dress homosexual," Armani said. "When homosexuality is exhibited to the extreme - to say, 'Ah, you know I'm homosexual,' - that has nothing to do with me. A man has to be a man." He also recalled a time when his rival Gianni Versace, known for his flamboyant and sexy designs, told him: "I dress sluts. You dress church ladies."

Fraus there are having a meltdown over the 'This Is Amazing Amy Pascal's Cheap, Crotch-Intensive Beauty Regimen' piece. Amy Pascal is the former SONY exec who's emails have been hacked. No one finds the 'article' funny. "Editors, why hasn’t this garbage been taken down? Totally, totally shameful and inappropriate, especially on Jezebel. You shouldn’t need to have it explained to you but no matter how inept and superficial you judge Amy Pascal to be, she doesn’t deserve to have her privacy invaded. You’re sending the worst kind of message: that it’s o.k. to publicly shame women we don’t like for “offenses” that aren’t about their competence or character. How many women have also purchased such items? What woman hasn’t lamented recent weight gain or other health issues? Jesus. Fuck. Why on earth would someone writing for Jezebel exploit —and that’s what you’re doing, another woman’s insecurities about her body? You owe your readers and Amy Pascal a swift, no-bullshit apology. Editors... respectfully, WTF?"
From a Nixon and Reagan era Republican to the poster child for liberals? Isn't it a bit insulting to people like Bernie Sanders, who have spent their entire political careers fighting for the cause? And democrats who never towed the party line? I don't think it's acceptable that she feels she's above telling people whether she voted for Reagan or not (even though it was revealed that she did TWICE by George Stephanopolous years back). Why the secrecy? Or shame, perhaps? I applaud her for saying and doing the right things now (even though everyone should clean up the mess they helped to make), but it's not acceptable for her to be taking ZERO accountability for her own actions that led to the mess. No regrets or apologies. And even more unacceptable is that democrats and liberals are giving her a complete pass for it or making excuses for her behavior.
Travis, 55, just made an appearance the ACM Awards over the weekend, two years after suffering a serious stroke. The singer was in the audience when it was announced he was in the building, then everyone stood up and gave him a standing ovation. This happened after fellow singer Lee Brice paid tribute to Travis by singing his classic song "Forever and Ever, Amen." After the show, Travis wrote on his website, "It was an amazing gift to feel all of the love from you tonight. ... It has been a hard fought and miraculous journey since my stroke two years ago." In July 2013, Travis was hospitalized in Texas for complications from viral cardiomyopathy, and later suffered a stroke. He was listed in critical condition. He was released from the hospital the next month. Travis had been engaged to Davis since early 2013. Last year, Davis spoke to ABC affiliate WFAA about her love's condition. "He wakes up with a smile on his face; he goes to bed with a smile on his face. He inspires me daily," she said. (OP couldn't help wondering if it was the same smile.)
So hot. I love how he'll use the other guy's ... as lube. Wish he'd do more videos, but he lives in SF now.
If so, which ones?
Bowties They're really more a political statement than a fashion one at this point.
I would have bumped otherwise, as there seems to be some news for the "fans."
any lesbian rumors?
I was always mystified why she's still hated so much by so many people, because by now almost no one believes she was responsible for breaking up the Beatles, and you would also think most people have felt pretty bad for her for watching her husband get murdered before her eyes. But then my friends this week showed me this clip (which is apparently pretty infamous) of her "joining in" (and ruining) what would otherwise be a great once-in-a-lifetime jam session with John Lennon and his idol, Chuck Berry, as they sing "Memphis, Tennessee," by making weird screeching noises at random moments, I instantly understood why. Many of you will have seen this before, but it will be new for many of you too.
If there was some question abut the wussification of Canada before, it is settled.
This is something I''ve always wondered when dealing with profanity. I''ve always seen women call men dicks or pricks before, but if you called a woman a cunt or a twat, suddenly you''ve gone too far. Why is it worse? And why is it so worse than calling them a bitch?

An evangelical Christian organization has called on right-leaning pastors to “investigate” the family and staff of U.S. presidential candidates in order to expose anyone who is secretly gay or who supports LGBT rights. The Washington Examiner‘s Paul Bedard reported on Monday that David Lane’s American Renewal Project had asked “100,000 pastors” that it was working with to mobilize Christian voters to also dig up dirt on people connected to presidential candidates. “As the race begins in the 2016 Republican Presidential Primary, Evangelicals have no choice but to investigate which consultants and operatives are behind each of the candidates; decisions about personnel provide evidences about policy,” Lane wrote in a column for Western Journalism last week. Lane pointed out that evangelicals had been disappointed when Ken Mehlman revealed he was gay after stepping down as the chairman of the Republican National Committee. And he suggested that George W. Bush would have been disqualified if Christian voters had known that his wife, Laura Bush, would hint at support for same-sex marriage and abortion rights after the president left office. “A former White House political director, who also served as a Presidential campaign manager and Republican Party Chairman, announced (after he left Washington) that he is a homosexual and an advocate for homosexual marriage. Why didn’t he say that when he depicted himself as a ‘family values’ conservative to win an election?” Lane wanted to know. According to the Christian activist, GOP attempts to appeal to independent voters had been “disastrous for the Republican Party-and America.” “Moderates flushed the legacy-and branding-of limited government, lower taxes, deregulation of business, and the attitude of ‘the-one-thing-that-government-can-do-for-me-is-leave-me-alone’ bequeathed to the Grand Old Party by President Reagan,” he wrote. “Moderates have sown the wind and reaped the whirlwind for Republicans, winning the presidency only 8 of the last 24 years.” “For the last quarter century, Evangelicals have been discipled by the likes of Karl Rove, Steve Schmidt, Ken Mehlman, and Meghan McCain. Haven’t they done enough damage?” Lane asked.
Confirming a long-held fan theory, pages from “All-New X-Men” #40 have leaked online ahead of Wednesday’s release that reveal Iceman is gay. The development has been picked up on by a number of gay media outlets, from The Advocate to NewNowNext. However, Marvel had no comment. Debuting in 2012, the series centers on the five original X-Men — Angel, Beast, Cyclops, Iceman and Jean Grey — who are brought from the past to the present to confront their counterparts. In the latest issue, written by Brian Michael Bendis and penciled by Mahmud Asrar, Bobby Drake comments on the “hotness” of Magik, leading telepathic teammate Jean Grey to pull him aside and point that he’s gay and appears to be overcompensating. After an initial denial and a suggestion that he might be bisexual, Iceman finally agrees with Jean that he’s “full gay.” Although Iceman has had romantic relationships with numerous female characters, from Opal Tanaka and Polaris to Mystique and Kitty Pryde, few have lasted long (seemingly fueling persistent speculation about the X-Man’s sexuality). An exchange in Wednesday’s issue addresses both canon and potential objections from some readers, with young Bobby asking, “How can my older self not be [gay] but I am?” before continuing, “Because maybe he couldn’t handle being a mutant and gay in a society that has issues with both? And one is easier to ‘put away’ than the other?”
Yes, yes you did. Word has it that the body hair started to grow out sooner than expected.
Who is your imbecile du jour? Who is making you see red with his or her idiocy? Mine is this woman I know who used to be nice and normal until she did some sort of self-development course. She quit her job, became a self-styled "social media guru" and is spiralling out of control in front of our very eyes. She now believes in homeopathy, The Secret and Mercury in retrograde. I don't think she can pay her bills.
My partner was sick with a bad head cold for a week. He went back to work this morning. Before I left for work I opened up a bunch of windows in our house to let the fresh air in and the germs out. What do you do that is old fashioned like this?
Do you still use it?
Are you a dog person, or a cat person? Or perhaps you favor amphibians? It seems a trend has started for us to learn a little more about our lesbians. This threads is started in that spirit. Ladies, over to you.
A friend got a good deal on beef stew meat and brought me a huge pack of it. I put it in the fridge and noticed later on it was round, not chuck. Is it worth my time and ingredients even cooking this? Will it ever get tender. I can't use my oven. It's broken and I'll be moving soon so I'm not going to bother getting it fixed. So my options are the stove, an electric one at that. I don't think straight out beef stew will work but what about stroganoff, just browning the cubes until they're pink inside (medium), removing them, adding some onions and mushrooms and some kind of booze and then sour cream and putting the meat back. Now that's a lot of ingredients wasted if the meat will still be tough as leather. This is why I usually never order pepper steak at a Chinese takeout. The meat is so tough I have to spit it out and end up just eating peppers, onions and gravy. Should I just dump it and tell my friend it was delicious?
Didn't see thread on this. Since the Olsons won't be returning, I hope they make Michelle (who only exists offscreen in this revival) an eccentric millionairess with a Daddy complex.
Continue your foolishness.
Tim Tebow is expected to sign a one-year contract with the Eagles on Monday, according to three people familiar with the deal. The people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Sunday because the contract hasn't been finalized. Tebow hasn't played in the NFL since 2012 with the New York Jets. He was released by the New England Patriots before the 2013 season and spent last year working in television as an analyst for the SEC Network and ESPN.

...and summer brings out so many. Guys flashing their dicks out of the leg of the shorts, guys with hard ons rubbing off on my shoulder, men playing pocket pool. Even late at night some full on masturbation. Share your subway tales here.
I like her, but let's be honest. Aside from her looks and her bad girl image, not much else explains why she managed to have so much success since 2005/2006. There had to be so many other women--others with more talent--waiting to get a recording deal with Def Jam records in the mid 00s. I'm guessing Jay Z had her sucking his dick. Does anyone here have any information on her? Does anyone here know how she managed to get a record deal? And is it true they were planning on shelving her until Umbrella became a huge hit?
Dr. Mehmet Oz plans to respond aggressively in the lead section of his show on Thursday, April 23 to doctors who have criticized his medical advice and questioned his faculty position at Columbia University. Dr. Oz will question the credibility of the letter's authors, several of whom have ties to the American Council on Science and Health, a pro-industry advocacy group that has supported genetically modified foods. The episode was taped for broadcast on Thursday.
I get it, there are liberals who don’t like Hillary Clinton. She’s too pro-corporate. She used to be anti-gay-ish. She’s a “war criminal” (WTF?). She’s just not liberal enough! Fine. If you can articulate those complaints in a reasonable way, we can talk. If you can convince me that letting a Republican back into the White House is preferable to Hillary Clinton, I’d be pretty darn impressed with your skills of persuasion. If, on the other hand, you give me this as an argument: Hillary Clinton, Tea Party Candidate, you are not a rational person. You’re a goddamn idiot. Brian Ross, the writer of the aforementioned anti-Clinton article is the Managing Editor of Truth-2-Power, an ostensibly progressive website. Yet, the argument against Hillary that he puts forth is completely bereft of those things progressive are supposed to prize: logic, facts and being the reality-based community. The first half of the article is pretty spot on: The libertarian Tea Party exists for the sole purpose of obstructing and destroying government. He accurately points out that their numerous political stunts and social conservative jihads are about keeping voters distracted while Republicans hand the economy over to the rich. Fair enough. But then he wanders into tinfoil hat territory by claiming that controlling the White House as well as Congress is not in the best interest of Republicans: If the Republican Party dominated government, if it had the Executive branch, then the public would demand that they DO something, instead of just trying to “stop stuff.” The GOP would be accountable. They would be gone in two years, and their tactic of stuffing legislatures with conservative nimrods who take orders when progressive, moderate and liberal voters stay home, would be done. Shattered. Over. It took 6 years to break the GOP’s hold on the country last time and the damage they did was incalculable. Anyone suggesting that Republicans and the Koch brothers would prefer a Democrat in the White House is not playing with a full deck. But that’s exactly what Ross is suggesting: Polarizing figures are great grist for gridlock. Hillary Clinton is a Libertarian gift. We’ve already seen how Barack Obama has been used to channel white America’s racial fears into a complete shutdown of compromise, a cornerstone of American Democracy. A Hillary Clinton Presidency will look a lot like that. Lose the racism. Use the gender fear. Ross goes on to explain how rabidly the right wing attacked Clinton while claiming that she encourages the rage: In some ways, the recent non-scandal State Department email “scandal” was a preview of how Mrs. Clinton not only thrives on, but may encourage that negative attention. Setting up a private email server, given the high likelihood of perception issues, would seem to be somewhat intentional. It is better to be talked about in a highly charged controversy with no real “scandal” that generates thousands of hours of free news chatter about Mrs. Clinton worldwide than to be out of that limelight. And he’s completely serious about this. But it gets even better when Ross insists that Clinton “cannot be an agent of change if she cannot meaningfully explain how she will break the Libertarian’s gridlock machine” and ends the article with: America needs a champion who will end gridlock and break the Tea Party funders’ stranglehold on our democracy. Anyone interested in taking that on? Bernie? Liz? Buddy? Bueller? Anybody? Now, follow the logic here: Clinton is a “polarizing” figure so she would “help” maintain gridlock. Therefor, we need someone like Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist, or Elizabeth Warren, the greatest threat to Wall Street and the 1% since FDR, to run instead. Got that? The preferable alternate to the “polarizing” Hillary are two potential candidates that would be infinitely more polarizing. Republicans tried to set the country on fire over President Obama’s centrist policies. What in the only fuck does Ross think they would do to stop the unabashedly progressive policies of a President Sanders or President Warren? I’ll tell you: We would pray for the days of simple gridlock. If Obama was a threat to conservative policies, Warren and Sanders would be existential threats to their very ideology. The scorched earth campaign Republicans would wage would make the last 6 years look like a friendly disagreement. And just how, exactly would Warren or Sanders break the gridlock? With rainbows and unicorn poop? Ross never bothers to say. And he never will. Why? Because it’s so much easier to criticize when you don’t have to explain how you would change anything. Kind of sounds exactly like the Tea Party, doesn’t it? With “progressive” friends like this, who needs Fox News?
"13 Witches is a Fantasy Horror story where thirteen sisters who practiced paganism, centuries ago , were wrongfully accused of being witches. They were tortured, ... punished and burned alive by those they loved. Only one of the sisters escaped: Nemesis. A deal is struck between Nemesis and the devil and centuries later, the sisters have been reincarnated and seek revenge on the ones who stole their lives. 13 Witches is the sexiest witches story ever told." Tell me, Clayton. Any reason why you didn't change your name when you got into show business?
Roseanne Barr is going blind. The 62-year-old comedian revealed to the Daily Beast at the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday, April 20, that her “vision is closing in.” "I have macular degeneration and glaucoma,” the Roseanne show alum told the news site of the medical condition that ultimately leaves you blind. “I just try and enjoy vision as much as possible, you know? Living it up. My dad had it, too,” Barr explained, adding that she’ll miss reading but has thought about hiring someone to “read for me and read to me.” The Roseanne’s Nuts star, who has been vocal about wanting to legalize marijuana and smokes on camera in her documentary Roseanne For President!, said she’s turned to the drug to self-medicate. “[Marijuana is] good for me for that because I have pressure in my eyes,” she explained. “[Marijuana is a] good medicine for a lot of things.” “It’s expansive,” she touted of the drug. “It opens your mind. You’re like…Wow, you’re in awe. You look up into the stars. It makes you wonder. It doesn’t close that down.”
Someone said the in the latest Anita Baker thread that legendary Luther was a real piece of work, a nightmare that would be a perfect fit for DL. Ive read that Luther was an emotional eater like Mother Oprah, obviously. I also heard he kept hot young men on his payroll, a la Tyler Perry. Anybody have Luther stories? He deserves to not have his teas spilled on a thread about that broke bitch Anita Baker, since he hated her so much.
So, do videos that are 4K not play correctly on my computer because I am not using the correct player? I tried with VLC (the latest version) and it skips and the audio/video is out of sync. Yet, 1080P material plays beautifully whether it is VLC, windows media player, etc... Is there a player I need to buy/download that has the capabilities to play 4K material or is it not a resolution that mixes well with computers?

I stumbled on this show tonight by accident and it's dreadful. Sooo many offensive steretypes- and none of them are remotely funny or clever. We need to rescue Stiflers mom and stat. Who do I blame for this shit?
Bravo Tony Geary! Someone get this man (another) Emmy. Tears were in my eyes today after this powerful episode, one of the best ever. Bravo Ron C, you handsome genius. Bravo Frank V. Everyone did a great job. I even enjoyed the kids playing young Luke and Patricia. They handled their weighty material quite well. This remains, as always, the best show on television.
I remember this played late at night on weekends when I was a kid in the late 70's. I recently got cable and it is playing on METV, been enjoying watching it before bed and seeing some of the stars when they were younger. One of the recent episodes had Joan Van Ark and she was a real beauty. Also Gary Collins back in the day, hubba hubba!
A CNN/ORC poll released on Monday finds Hillary Clinton is still dominating the Republican field in the 2016 presidential race. Clinton leads each hypothetical GOP candidate by a margin of at least 14 percentage points. The telephone poll was conducted between April 16-19, 2015, generating responses from a representative sample of 1,018 adult Americans. The survey found that Clinton holds a commanding lead over each potential Republican opponent. The closest match-up is against Florida Senator Marco Rubio. In that race, Clinton leads 55-41 percent. She has a 56-39 advantage over Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. She leads both Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie by a 58-39 margin. Scott Walker, Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz and Ben Carson are in even more miserable shape, as each of them trail Hillary Clinton by over 20 percentage points. The Republican field appears wide open, with no candidate garnering better than 20 percent support. Bush leads the GOP race with 17 percent, followed by Scott Walker at 12 percent, and Rand Paul and Marco Rubio, both at 11 percent. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton is dominating the field with 69 percent support. Her nearest Democratic challenger, Vice President Joe Biden, is favored by just 11 percent of potential Democratic primary voters. Although Hillary Clinton has received a fair amount of negative press coverage in the past couple of months, her candidacy seems to be weathering the storm quite well. Republicans hoping that they have carved into her lopsided lead may find Monday’s poll numbers disheartening. For all their efforts, the GOP doesn’t seem to be gaining any traction in slowing down the Clinton campaign juggernaut. The Republicans have been chomping at the bit for a chance to win back the White House. However, this new poll suggests that while American voters are ready for Hillary, the Republican candidates certainly are not. Every one of the GOP candidates is getting steamrolled by Clinton in the polls. The general election is still almost a year and a half away, so the polls may tighten between now and then. But as of April 2015, there isn’t a single Republican candidate who polls competitively against Hillary Clinton. If that dynamic doesn’t change, Hillary Clinton will become America’s first woman president. Not only that, but she would accomplish the feat in convincing fashion, vanquishing her GOP opponent in a historic landslide.
NcBongo is too hammy, Anne's short hair is unattractive and the robot isn't cute enough. It doesn't even seem like the voice is coming from it. I keep wondering who said that. Wes Bentley looks good and not quite as glaringly glassy eyed as in American Beauty.

Shades of Snowpiercer. I know global warming gets all the attention, but global cooling would be far worse. We are living in an interglacial era. Every time the world gets closer to our current peak, it quickly plunges into another ice age. These interglacial periods appear to have some correlation with sunspot activity. The latest news on sunspot activity is similar to other cold spells. Although sunspot data only goes back a few hundred years, the "mini-ice age" from 1250-1850 leads to this detail- [quote]…if history is a guide, it is safe to say that weak solar activity for a prolonged period of time can have a negative impact on global temperatures in the troposphere which is the bottom-most layer of Earth’s atmosphere - and where we all live. There have been two notable historical periods with decades-long episodes of low solar activity. The first period is known as the “Maunder Minimum”, named after the solar astronomer Edward Maunder, and it lasted from around 1645 to 1715. The second one is referred to as the “Dalton Minimum”, named for the English meteorologist John Dalton, and it lasted from about 1790 to 1830. Both of these historical periods coincided with below-normal global temperatures in an era now referred to by many as the “Little Ice Age”. In addition, research studies in just the past couple of decades have found a complicated relationship between solar activity, cosmic rays, and clouds on Earth. This research suggests that in times of low solar activity where solar winds are typically weak; more cosmic rays reach the Earth’s atmosphere which, in turn, has been found to lead to an increase in certain types of clouds that can act to cool the Earth. Here is the link that got me thinking. Notice how the planet is at the peak temperature. Hundreds of thousands of years of data, all showing that we are on the cusp of a new ice age.
The NY Times reports today that it is the world’s largest credit card issuer, but I've never seen the appeal. It seems to be accepted at fewer places (in America), and have less benefits than Visa or MasterCard. So I don't understand it. I have one, but I have multiple Visa & MCs. I never use my AMEX, I just keep it because I already have it. Now that I think of it, I may cancel it.
The struggle continues.

For some reason the Colton Haynes Tweet thread people are using says "thread closed" so I started this one. Had to post this somewhere because has anyone seen his recent quote? He put Jeff Davis ON BLAST. [quote]Haynes transition to acting was set into overdrive with a recurring role on MTV’s hit series Teen Wolf, followed by a sudden departure that went bizarrely unacknowledged. “There was a level of unprofessionalism that went down that I just wasn’t comfortable with,” he recalls. “It was tough when other parties went on ‘convention tours’ to announce false news, but I know the truth, they know the truth. It sucked. I felt like I was ripped away from this cast I had grown up with, who had become my family. I have this issue where I’m a rug. In the past, I’ve kind of nodded and said yes a lot and went about my business. I’m done being that.” So, looks like he is claiming he was more ripped away from Teen Wolf than left it willingly and the version Davis told was bullshit.
One of the classes at a college near me assigns students the job of writing their own obituary. Since the subject is thanatology, a degree of morbidity is expected; but students have fun with it nevertheless and I sometimes see the results. As a result, I have respect for people wanting to do weird things with their obituary. Still, I’ve never seen one politicized until now. WSOCTV reports that Larry Upright, 81, decided to have one last request put in his obituary: a request that people not vote for Hilary Clinton. At this point, it goes without saying that Upright was a diehard Republican. According to his family, Upright not only enjoyed politics, he was “very passionate” about them, in the words of his daughter, Jill McLain. His son, Mike Upright, said that “We did this for him,” and, “He had nothing to do with it other than voicing his opinion time after time after time.” His son added, “We know he’s up there giggling right now. Just laughing out loud.” The line, at the end of the obituary, reads, “Also, the family respectfully asks that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016. R.I.P. Grandaddy.” You can read the obituary here. According to his wife, Colleen Upright, responses have been varied: “We have got some very sweet responses and some pretty nasty responses.” RIP Mr. Upright, but I will indeed be voting for Hilary in 2016 — and probably again in 2020, too.
I recently met up with Emily, an old university flatmate. She was the epitome of the "frenemy", although I didn't realise at the time because my self-confidence was at floor level throughout my university experience. It was a really rough time for me. I had to work full time in the shittiest jobs to (barely) afford my rent and tuition. Sometimes I had to choose between having dinner or taking the subway home. I had no friends because I worked all the time and I couldn't really afford to go out. I was underweight, my boyfriend lived abroad and my family was out of the picture. I was depressed and anxious all day, every day. Enter Emily, who went to the same university as me, and spent her days eating chocolate, getting fucked by the rugby team and watching television. Whenever she had an opportunity she would make a little comment about how hilariously degrading she found my jobs (especially in front of other people); she would casually mention a "new" physical flaw she had discovered on me, all of a sudden ("Oh! I never noticed how weird your eyebrows look!"). The silent treatment was pretty routine. She refused to clean and I couldn't afford a cleaning lady, so I became responsible for cleaning the flat. Everything was always about her and her drama, her problems, her issues. I was alone in a foreign country and she was my only "friend" so I put up with it until we graduated and we parted ways. Total doormat, I know. Those were the lowest years of my life. Ten years on life's beautiful to me. Career, relationships, health, fitness, wealth... I have been extremely happy for years now (plus I look great, if I may say so myself!). Emily shows up and she has BALLOONED up. Awful skin. Greasy hair. Three kids from two different guys, who won't marry her. Chain-smoking. Money problems. "Baby daddy" drama. Still a complete bitch about everyone. She hasn't changed at all. After an hour of ranting about her miserable life she snaps "you look like you're doing alright though". I fucking LOVED it. I am not even sorry. OK now you.
Removed from ventilator, Bobbi Kristina Brown's condition unchanged: source Thu Feb 19, 2015 3:05pm EST (Reuters) - Doctors have taken Bobbi Kristina Brown, daughter of late singer Whitney Houston, off the ventilator that has helped her breathe since she was found unresponsive in a bathtub last month, but no decisions have been made to take her off life support, a family source said on Thursday. The source, who declined to be identified, said Brown's overall condition has not changed. Removing the breathing tube was a standard course of practice to avoid infection, the source said. Family members have said Brown, 21, the only child of singers Bobby Brown and Houston, is fighting for her life at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta after she was discovered on Jan. 31 face down and unresponsive in a bathtub in her suburban home. They have said little about the aspiring singer's treatment or medical prognosis, and Bobby Brown has asked for privacy. Police in Roswell, Georgia, are treating the case as a criminal investigation and have been questioning people about the circumstances leading up to Brown being found in the tub. Brown's famous mother, a six-time Grammy Award winner and actress who battled substance abuse, drowned in a hotel bathtub in Beverly Hills, California, on Feb. 11, 2012. Authorities said cocaine use and heart disease contributed to Houston's death at age 48.

A new report claims that NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio will leverage his progressive bona fides against Hillary Clinton in a race to become president. Does Mayor Bill de Blasio want to be President Bill de Blasio? We may just find out. "Mayor Bill de Blasio is positioning himself to be the leftist 'progressive' alternative to Wall Street-friendly Hillary Rodham Clinton as the Democratic candidate for president," an exclusive report in the New York Post today claims, citing "a national party operative." With Elizabeth Warren having declared she will not run, many, many times, liberals are looking for a progressive candidate, at least to push Clinton more to the left. Or, to actually win the Democratic nomination. "De Blasio’s hope, the operative said, is a 'Draft de Blasio' movement will develop among progressive activists over the next several months that will lead to the mayor being able to defeat Clinton in the primary elections next year," the Post claims. It adds that a potential de Blasio White House run would explain the New York City mayor's surprising refusal to immediately endorse Clinton, who is a long-time family and political friend. De Blasio was in Iowa with "one of the nation’s most important Democratic communications strategists and the man responsible for the popular 'Dante' TV spot that helped get de Blasio elected mayor, said the operative." De Blasio was heralded as the nation's most-progressive mayor when he was elected in 2013.

He's no doubt been degraded to B-list talk show host since Leno screwed him over. But he also seemed to lose a lot of goodwill by throwing his tantrum and generally beating the whole Tonight Show sacking to death.

How very Nixonian of this toupeed liberal flake... Ben Affleck persuaded the producers of Finding Your Roots to edit out details of how his ancestors were slave owners even though it was a breach of PBS editorial rules. The new Batman star, who supports a number of liberal causes, objected to the ancestry TV show airing how his distant relations were racist, leaked Sony emails reveal. Instead viewers were shown heartwarming stories of how his third grandfather was a mystic in the Civil War and how his sixth grandfather was a patriot who fought in the American Revolution. Daily Mail Online has reviewed a transcript of the show and watched the video and there is no mention of slavery in the part featuring Affleck. The Sony emails show that the makers of Finding Your Roots, including Emmy Award-winning host and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr, engaged in a deliberate cover-up despite knowing that it was a 'violation' of PBS rules, as Gates puts it. An email from Sony chief executive Michael Lynton to Gates reads: 'I would take it out if no one knows.' Gates warns that 'once we open the door to censorship, we lose control of the brand' - but appears to have done just that. The emails raise serious questions over the integrity of Finding Your Roots, the publicly-subsidized broadcaster PBS and Mr Gates, who is the director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard. They also call into question the motives of Affleck who is a strong supporter of liberal causes including gay marriage and the anti-hunger campaign 'Feeding America'. His Eastern Congo initiative advocates for better investment in the African nation and in an interview with Bill Maher he attacked the host for his views on Islam and called him a 'racist'. Affleck's request was revealed in leaked Sony emails between Mr Gates and My Lynton that were published by WikiLeaks.

Due to the mass evacuation of the previous deranged Havenettes, it is now safe to return to the world sans Engelbert Humperdinck, but will the frenzy reach the heights of the early days? Or will it just be a slow burn demise of the Haven? Whatever happens, we still have Sue to laugh at...and, in the meantime, perhaps Ladyfingers Pattinson will be hit by a truck whilst on one of his "special outings" to whichever location has been outed as THE place to be for those of backwards intellect. Or maybe the Stewart-Cargiles will switch to organic smoothie runs as the coffee addictions bloat their thighs, inhibiting the seams of their ultra-tight jeans. Meanwhile, poor little Sweatpea waits in the background ... Whilst the possibilities aren't endless, they should be hilarious in any case.

They've been letting her bark all night next door and she would pace outside by my bedroom window. I tried earphones and earplugs but it was a shrieking kind of sound, with howling. She was young, part retriever. I guess they were trying to get her to grow up. They're horrible people and I couldn't talk to them. No one else would do anything. People here aren't like that. Eventually someone just would have given her antifreeze of something. So I started tossing raw meatballs over the fence with a tiny amount of my Xanax and Diazepam in them, one each night around 10. It worked fine. But I guess there was a build up of something because Tuesday morning I heard screaming and they had found the dog dead with froth all over its face. The woman came to my door and asked if I had seen anything and then as much as asked if I did something. I said no of course not, I loved Shelly. (I would give her treats and even walked her when she was a puppy a few times before the people got weird) Now she's going all over accusing people. She says they're getting two pit bulls and if anything happens she's going to start civil war. Now I don't know what to do. Should I just go and tell her the truth? It was an accident. I could say I was trying to soothe the dog and it was a terrible mistake. If she gets pit bull they'll be barking all the time and I'll have to move, and I can't afford more rent. I'm afraid they'll hurt my cats, which Shelly never did. I have an understanding with my landlord and I'm worried. Can I be arrested if I confess? All I wanted was some sleep. I know how this sounds, but any ideas will be helpful. Has this ever happened to you?

The pair has said they plan to spend nearly $900 million during the 2016 campaign cycle.

Sorry, I just needed to vent.
"The federal government and the state of California are on the verge of paying me a fair chunk of change. I didn't do any work to earn this money. I performed no services for them. It's just free money. Even more strangely, no legislator is trying to prevent me from using this money to eat lobster. Nobody is calling for me to be drug-tested. Hell, if I lived in Kansas, I could even spend my government money on a cruise ship (if I could find one in Kansas, but that’s beside the point). And if I did, conservatives would probably celebrate me for it and say that I deserved to treat myself to whatever I liked with my no-strings-attached free ride from the state. No, I'm not on food stamps. I'm employed fairly consistently at a decent wage, so I'm not getting a welfare check. So what's going on? Well, the government is paying me simply to invest my own money. It's a commonly used part of the tax code—line 32 in this year's federal 1040 tax return form, the IRA tax deduction. IRA is short for Individual Retirement Account, and they're really easy to open: You can just walk into your local bank branch and open one up, or use any number of online brokerage services if you feel like investing in stocks with it. How much you can contribute to one per year depends on how old you are and whether you already have a retirement plan: for me, it's $5,500 for the 2014 tax year. And for every dollar up to your legal limit that you contribute, you can deduct that amount from your taxable income. For instance: if you made $50,000 in 2014 but contributed $5,000 to an IRA, you only pay taxes as if you made $45,000. Now, there is a caveat: once you put money into an IRA, you can't take it out before age 59-½ without a substantial tax penalty. But that point notwithstanding, the government will charge you less in taxes just to invest your own money. For the 2014 tax year, I took full advantage of the amount I’m allowed to deduct—it's a lot less than the numbers above for complicated reasons, but I'm still paying less in taxes than I otherwise would have as a result. In essence, the government is paying me to invest in Wall Street. Now, a lot of people feel that there's a distinction between getting a tax break and getting welfare, but really, there isn't much of a difference. When a state issues a welfare check or a food stamp, it's a very visible, direct benefit to the recipient, and everyone understands exactly what it is. But when the government pays you through the tax code, it doesn't have the same feel, even if the effect is exactly the same. Mentally, we have no problem calling this what it is when it works in reverse: this year, many people who don't have health insurance will have to pay a fine to the government. Technically, it's administered through the tax code and people who are subject to the fine will have to pay it when they file their tax returns. But in our minds, we have no problem calling it a fine. Somehow, though, when we take advantage of tax credits or other government programs that don't come in the form of welfare checks or debit cards, we don't view it as the government paying us. But we should. It’s a phenomenon that Cornell professor Suzanne Mettler has called the "submerged state." It's a network of programs and benefits that provide government aid to the middle and upper classes. But because the aid is administered through the tax code, or because the people who receive the handouts in question feel that they deserve them, they're politically palatable and nobody is seeking to put restrictions on how the recipients of this middle-class welfare are allowed to spend the aid they get. And the amounts of money we're talking about are staggering.
According to various reports, four gay NFL players will soon come out of the closet. But veteran free safety Kerry Rhodes wants to make it clear: he will not be one of them. Pictures of Rhodes surfaced this week on Media Take Out in which the player's arms are around a man in a tank top, but Rhodes tells TMZ the shots are harmless. "Photos have been circulating of my former assistant and I that have caused some rumors regarding my sexuality, and I wanted to address the situation," Rhodes says in a statement. "I am not gay." The free agent adds that the pics were snapped during a "casual" vacation with his "entire business team." Rhodes does say he agrees with Magic Johnson overall, however: he's all for those athletes who actually are homosexual: "I know a lot of people are recently talking about athletes struggling to come out to their fans right now, and I support them, as well as wish those individuals comfort."
Get ready for "Chocolate City!"
NO, this is not a hate racist question. I just want to know why they ALL pick and choose black men. It's rather odd, don't you think? Is there some sort of racial undertone going on with them?
Says "he's pathetic". Keeping it classy as always, Kim. I feel bad for Rob. It has to be hard being in that family. I think he genuinely loves them but clearly wants nothing to do with the extreme famewhoring that they've made a trademark, but he doesn't know how to make a break. It says something when the one battling depression is the most well adjusted of the family.

I need advice about planting grapes. I purchased them in the fall and have kept them in the garage with minimal watering. I have semi-trellises to start them on, as well as a hillside and plenty of room for them to grown downhill. I need some advice on how best to encourage growth. I bought a blueberry bush. Any ideas on how to keep it going? What's the best way to fertilize the grapes and the blueberry bush? I'm also planting a 20' by 40' wildflower garden in order to attract bees and birds and increase pollination for other plants. The flowers are region-specific. I live in Zone 6.
Witnesses said the singer, 56, had disturbed Broadway hip-hop musical Hamilton by texting throughout the second act Madonna was barred from going backstage at a hit show after it was claimed she texted during half of it. Witnesses said the singer, 56, had disturbed Broadway hip-hop musical Hamilton. She watched the first half of the production before then taking to her mobile to constantly text throughout the second half. Both the audience and the cast grew increasingly annoyed by Madonna's actions, who was then taken to task by the shows author Lin-Manuel Miranda. He tweeted it was “the first time” he had asked stage management “NOT to allow a celebrity (who was texting all through act 2) backstage. #noselfieforyou.” The only picture Madonna is said to have taken is one of herself and her bag. The show has been seen by a raft of A list stars including Daniel Craig, Sir Paul McCartney, Jon Bon Jovi and Jake Gyllenhaal. Before Saturday night's performance First Lady Michelle Obama attended the matinee performance.
Alright ladies, place your bets. Will Zsa-Zsa buy the farm or will we find out that she died years ago?
She isn't pretty. She has a masculine face and tree trunks for legs. Who did she screw to convince people she's a sex symbol?
Was chatting with two NYU students both gay, seemingly well-adjusted guys. I made a reference to Golden Girls and neither understood it. They both admitted they had never actually watched an episode and didn't even know the names of the four actresses (except for Betty White). Just to test them I asked about Murder, She Wrote and they hadn't watched that show either! I honestly couldn't believe it. I gave them a little lecture about Angela and her tv/film/Broadway credits. They indulged me, but didn't seem to genuinely care. Given that both shows are so tied to gay culture how could these two guys not have ever seem an episode?? And for the record, I'm not some elder gay. I'm 31.
He texted that "I'm really focused on sports and not on girls." Gayling?
Ever notice how this is always a joke about men going to prison? Is it because heteros find ass play the most disgusting thing on earth?

I try to avoid watching Fox News, but I switched to O''Reilly tonight just to see what he would say about Prop. 8. Dennis Miller is the guest. I remember when he was funny on SNL. I remember when he was angry and funny on HBO. Now he is screaming at the camera about Muslims and Mexican immigrants. (The gays don''t seem to interest him.) Even if you agreed with what he had to say, it''s disturbing to watch -- he''s downright rabid.

Ireland has been shocked by the trial of architect Graham Dwyer, a married straight father of young children, for the murder of his BDSM 'slave' Irene O'Hara. Dwyer was found guilty of O'Hara's murder this week. The cause of death is unknown, as only 65% of O'Hara's skeleton was found on Killakee Mountain near Dublin by a dog walker, the rest had been taken by animals. However, items linked to the murder, including a chain, gag, and leather mask, and O'Hara's inhaler, were found in a reservoir by anglers, along with a phone which Dwyer referred to as a 'slave phone' which O'Hara used exclusively to communicated with Dwyer. The items were only made visible due to an unusually dry summer which lowered the reservoir's water level. Without this find, Dwyer may never have been caught and the cause of O'Hara's death never known. Dwyer had a fetish for stabbing women during sex. HIs first partner left him when he started to bring a knife into bed. He filmed several women being stabbed by him when blindfolded, presumably without their knowledge. One American woman he met online was too terrified of him to travel to the Ireland to testify in person at the trial. Police found a four page document Dwyer had written in which he described how he wished to rape and kill her. O'Hara was under psychiatric care and had the 'emotional age of a teenager' according to her father's partner, who is a psychologist. Dwyer told her that if she wanted to commit suicide, to tell him so he could kill her. He also told her to find a woman for him to kill, and in return, he would get her pregnant. Mr Justice Hunt then thanked the jurors for their service and said even as a professional with the best part of 30 years experience, he didn’t find some of the material presented in the trial easy. He said it was “pretty horrendous”.
Officer was arrested today for murder! Finally! ENOUGH!
How very Carterish of this fat liberal flake... Matt Damon persuaded the producers of Finding Your Roots to edit out details of how his ancestors were slaves even though it was a breach of PBS editorial rules. The Bourne star, who supports a number of liberal causes, objected to the ancestry TV show airing how his distant relations were slaves, leaked Sony emails reveal. Instead viewers were shown heartwarming stories of how his third grandfather was from Mystic, Connecticut and how his sixth grandfather was a patriot who fought in the French Revolution and eventually became Emperor of the French. Daily Mail Online has reviewed a transcript of the show and watched the video and there is no mention of slavery in the part featuring Damon. The Sony emails show that the makers of Finding Your Roots, including Emmy Award-winning host and Harvard professor Henry Louis Gates Jr, engaged in a deliberate cover-up despite knowing that it was a 'violation' of PBS rules, as Gates puts it. An email from Sony chief executive Michael Lynton to Gates reads: 'I would take it out if no one knows.' Gates warns that 'once we open the door to censorship, we lose control of the brand' - but appears to have done just that. The emails raise serious questions over the integrity of Finding Your Roots, the publicly-subsidized broadcaster PBS and Mr Gates, who is the director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research at Harvard. They also call into question the motives of Damon who is a strong supporter of liberal causes including gay marriage and the pro-clean drinking water campaign Water.org. His Water.org initiative advocates for increased investment in African and other third-world nations for clean drinking water and in an interview with Bill Maher he attacked the host for his views on African Americans and called him a 'racist'. Danon's request was revealed in leaked Sony emails between Mr Gates and My Lynton that were published by WikiLeaks.

Will Ferrell film ‘Get Hard’ slammed for gay prison rape gags 18th March 2015, 4:27 PM, Gaz Jeffries A film starring comedian Will Ferrell has been slammed by critics for its jokes about gay sex in prisons. Upcoming film ‘Get Hard’ stars Ferrell as a businessman who is wrongly jailed for tax evasion, and Kevin Hart as a black friend who ‘trains’ him to survive prison. However, the film has been poorly received by critics due to its portrayal of “gay-panic humour”. In one scene, Ferrell’s character goes to a gay bar and attempts to perform a sex act on a man in a toilet, in order to ‘prepare’ for prison, before breaking down in tears. A review of the film for Variety states: “If you’re disturbed by white-collar crime, but not quite as disturbed as you are by gay sex, then congratulations: You might possess just the right combo of social conscience and unexamined homophobia needed to fully enjoy ‘Get Hard’. “Not even two of America’s most reliable funnymen can eke consistent laughs out of this sloppy odd-couple comedy about a wrongly convicted millionaire (Will Ferrell) who asks the nearest black guy (Kevin Hart) to toughen him up in preparation for a decade behind bars — a premise that allows for a few timely jabs at racial oppression and class disparity, though it’s ultimately undone by some of the ugliest gay-panic humour to befoul a studio release in recent memory. “ A second review noted for HitFlix: “There is nothing this movie can imagine that is worse than gay sex, it seems to be saying… This film is so relentless in how wrong it is that I eventually gave up. “I just couldn’t bring myself to laugh at something that will reinforce hatred, that plays into this idea that gay sex is somehow inherently more disgusting than regular sex. “When we talk about homophobia, that’s exactly what this is. “Sorry, but as great as sex feels and as important as it is to every person’s happiness, stigmatizing anyone for enjoying themselves in a safe, consensual way seems morally offensive to me.” Kevin Hart said in January that he would refuse to play a gay character, and had turned down a role in Tropic Thunder because it involved homosexuality. He said: “I feel I can’t [play a gay character] because I don’t think I’m really going to dive into that role 100 percent, because of the insecurities about myself trying to play that part. “What I think people are going to think while I’m trying to do this is going to stop me from playing that part the way I’m supposed to.”
We have surveillance footage of the perps as well as accounts of anti-gay epithets that preceded a brutal attack on a D.C. gay man. Let's do this. WASHINGTON - “I was walking on the right side of the elevator when someone hit me, punched me on the right side of my jaw,” a 23-year-old victim of a brutal attack told FOX 5. The attack came out of nowhere and left the victim with his jaw broken in two places and four teeth nearly knocked out. He has dozens of stitches, two metal plates in his mouth and his mouth is now wired shut, which is why it is difficult to understand when he speaks. After the first punch, he was thrown to the ground and the group of young men were hitting and kicking him repeatedly. “I did hear someone yell, ‘Get that effing fa****,' while I was on the ground,” the victim said. Metro Transit Police is investigating whether this was a hate crime because the victim is gay or a random mugging because the suspects took off with his phone. Images of the suspects were taken from surveillance video at the Congress Heights Metro station in Southeast D.C. on Saturday April 11 between 10:45 and 11 p.m. when the victim was jumped. “I was disoriented at the time,” he explained. “My glasses fell off so I really couldn't see.” He also suffered a concussion, so he didn't realize the seriousness of his injuries, and he didn't report them or go to the hospital until the next day. “I woke up and there was blood all over the pillow,” said the victim. He headed to the emergency room and ended up on an operating table. Now a week after his surgeries, he is still in pain, on a liquid diet and worried about his personal safety. “I'm hopeful justice will be served,” he said. “But I'm also grateful to still be alive because sometimes these things do turn fatal and the person is killed.” This young man is receiving financial and medical help from D.C.'s Office of Victim Services. But his friends have set up an account to provide additional help as well. Anyone who recognizes the suspects or knows anything about the crime is asked to call Metro Transit Police.

I don't understand how the woman could lose custody of her kids? Unless she is an ax murderer, the mother always gets custody. But the father got sole custody of the kids, and promptly moved to France with the kids. Probably never to return. Is Kelly Rutherford so crazy that the judge would give custody to the dad? Anyone know?
Earlier this week, "Dancing With The Stars" judge Julianne Hough was discussing "Mean Girls" star and DWTS contestant Jonathan Bennett on "Extra" with host Mario Lopez. "[Bennett] tweeted me last year and said, like, I had a nice butt, but he also tagged my trainer," she said. "And so I was like, 'Oh, he's hitting on me. I should try to go on a date with him.'" "What happened?" Lopez asked. "He's gay," Hough responded. "So, I was like, that's not gonna work." The only problem? Bennett has never said that he's gay. Any insider knowledge Hough may have aside, it isn't hard to understand why she might be under the assumption that he is and that he's out. Numerous publications have said as much and until this morning, even his Wikipedia page claimed he's gay. But if someone never says it himself -- and even his publicist declines to comment on whether or not he is or if he's out of the closet -- is he really? After we ran a story about Hough's gaffe, I was inundated with responses (both from Gay Voices readers and my own friends and acquaintances) that mostly fell into two categories: 1. people telling me that he was gay and out ("I did shots with him at a gay bar in WeHo last year!" "My friend had sex with him!" etc) and 2. people questioning why it mattered if he publicly came out and asking why we couldn't just let him live his life. There are many different levels of being out. You can be out to yourself, you can be out to your family, you can be out to your friends, you can be out at work, you can be out publicly and you can be out in some combination of all of the above. But when you're a public figure like Bennett, if you've never said the words "I'm gay" or, as many stars have done in recent years, have never publicly discussed or referenced a partner or date of the same sex, you're not out. And yes, that distinction matters and yes, being out publicly matters. Here's why: Coming out is a radical act capable of upending deep-seated assumptions about who someone is and challenging our fundamental beliefs about what that ultimately means for how we understand and treat them. In a world where you can still go to prison for being queer and hate crimes are still happening, it's a powerful weapon that disarms people and changes minds. It makes it harder and harder for people to say "I don't know anyone who is gay" or "All gay people are like this." And when minds change, so does our culture. Case in point: Republican Senator Rob Portman, who embraced marriage equality after his own son came out as gay. What's more, not coming out continues to feed the lie that there is something shameful about being gay. And there isn't. By not coming out -- or remaining in that gray area where people know you're gay but you won't say the words -- you are, as Ellen Page put it earlier this year in her stunning coming out speech, lying by omission. By not saying you're gay, you're letting others believe you are straight, because straight is still the default -- and preferred and privileged -- orientation in our society. And this has nothing to do with privacy. I'm so tired of people blabbering on about how we need to respect people's privacy. Sexuality shouldn't be a private matter. My being gay is a part of who I am -- just like I'm 5'8" and left handed and allergic to morphine. And sexuality certainly isn't a private matter for straight people, is it? How many straight people do you know who refuse to say that they're straight? If Bennett isn't gay, I'd love for him to say that, too. Contrary to what some people believe, being straight isn't something to be ashamed of either. That's part of the reason I'm grateful for James Franco, a man who has made no secret of his heterosexuality. And still -- he's one of the queerest men I know. He's helped to challenge stereotypes about what it means to be straight or gay and by doing so, he's providing another kind of example -- another possibility -- for who and how we can be. Bottom line: our sexuality isn't something we should be afraid of or afraid of sharing. Yes, some people have very good reasons for not coming out -- they could be thrown out on the street, they could be fired from their job, their physical or mental safety could be compromised. But if that's not the case, I believe we have a responsibility to come out -- especially if you are in the public eye and your being out will have a positive impact. And today, thanks to people like Ellen DeGeneres and Ellen Page and Neil Patrick Harris and Zachary Quinto, coming out in Hollywood does not equal career suicide. Coming out is scary. And it's not something you do once and then are done with. We have to come out every day. And even I hesitate sometimes. Just a few weeks ago when I was on a flight to Chicago, someone asked me what I did for a living and I paused for a second and thought, Do I really want to get into this? And then I took a breath and told him. Because it matters. Because that's how things change. We start speaking up and telling our truths and each time it gets a little less terrifying until one day we wake up and the world has changed. And on that day, our sexualities will still matter -- just in a different way. Gay, straight, bi, and everything in between -- we will no longer be afraid to say we love who we want to love or say we fuck who we want to fuck. But we've got some work to do before we get there and we are all on the clock, and that includes Jonathan Bennett and James Franco and you and me. Here. Let me go first: My name is Noah Michelson and I'm a homosexual. Now, who's next? Note: An earlier version of this story stated that Bennett's Wikipedia page noted that he is gay. After the publication of this piece, the reference was deleted from his page.

I just noticed that on this website, a lot of gays complain of being discriminated in the workforce. I'm a nurse, and have never witnessed discrimination towards gays in nursing. Of the three gay men I have met, all were popular and well respected.

I love the masculine F to M Transpeople, A muscular man with a hairy chest AND a working pussy turns me on like nothing else. I dated a transman for 3 years before he went back to Idaho to work on the family farm. Best sex ever. However I am creeped out by M to F. They always look like awkward men in drag, save the rich ones. While I can totally understand a woman wanting to become a man, I can't find room in my brain for a man who wants to be an ugly creepy transwoman. I don't fight against them or discriminate in employment etc. But being around them makes me feel gross and uncomfortable. As do ultra femmy men.

Poor me, I'm so ugly, everyone else is happier than me, I actually wrote a song called "Melancholia", Pete Townshend. Anyone else notice any especially self-pitying, mega rich celebrities?
World's Hottest Math Teacher: College Student Discovers His Lecturer Is Actually a Male Model By Adam Carlson, 03/28/2015 AT 11:55 AM EDT What would you do if you realized your math teacher was actually a super successful – and super attractive – male model? Because that's exactly what happened to University College London student Arief Azli, who (like any college kid) then shared his discovery on Facebook. "That moment when you realized your maths lecturer is one of the top designer model," Azli wrote in a post comparing two photos of his teacher, Pietro Boselli: One of Boselli at the whiteboard, papers in the hand; the other of him ... not wearing very much at all. "#OnlyatUCL," Azli hashtagged it, adding: "#Bromance." Other students reportedly followed suit, sharing more photos of Boselli in the classroom. According to his LinkedIn account, Boselli worked as a teaching assistant and then lecturer at UCL until June 2014. As for his modeling work, he's represented by Models1. His Instagram says he has a PhD in engineering and is "addicted to training." We can tell.
Continue your foolishness.
I know... another Aaron Schock thread, but I do think that this one is quite different. He isn't reporting to work. He hasn't been seen. So, what do you think she is doing right now? What would you be doing? My guess is that he is fielding calls from many campaign donors that want to extricate themselves from this mess. However, I don't know what kind of contact they would/could have since the FBI is now involved. Also, I think he might be piss-ass drunk, in tears, and with a dildo up his ass, thinking about Jonathon Link and their wonderful trip to India. Ahhh,,, the good ole days...

Invisible bird mites that can never be exterminated, or cured, that burrow into people's bodies. No one believes or helps the sufferers. They are treated for regular mites or scabies, the treatment doesn't work, and they have to give away all their furniture, sleep on an inflatable mattress, and send the children away. Causes appear to be pigeons, dogs, and dirty neighbors. Their entire lives consist of wiping everything down with Windex, scratching constantly and being unable to sleep for days. This is a real thing apparently. Doctors simply say if they're not cured with conventional treatments, they must be meth addicts and they refuse to help them. They refuse to research it or check it out further either. It's extremely contagious. It sounds like an antibiotic and pesticide resistant species from another country that is invading the U.S.
Believe it or not, people with this affliction, at their very core, are the inverse of the narcissist. People with BPD start out 'too sensitive', too empathetic. People with borderline personality disorder empathize to the point of pain. When the highly sensitive person grows up in a very non-validating and/or abusive environment, with a history of trauma, BPD can manifest. In order for borderline personality to develop, an invalidating environment with and a highly sensitive person MUST BE present. What is going on in a Borderline Personality Disorder sufferer's mind and how they are acting can be two entirely different things. To the sufferer, BPD is about deep feelings, feelings often too difficult to express, feelings that are something along the lines of this : If others really get to know me, they will find me rejectable and will not be able to love me; and they will leave me; I need to have complete control of my feelings otherwise things go completely wrong; I have to adapt my needs to other people's wishes, otherwise they will leave me or attack me; I am an evil person and I need to be punished for it; Other people are evil and abuse you; If someone fails to keep a promise, that person can no longer be trusted; If I trust someone, I run a great risk of getting hurt or disappointed; If you comply with someone's request, you run the risk of losing yourself; If you refuse someone's request, you run the risk of losing that person; I will always be alone; I can't manage by myself, I need someone I can fall back on; There is no one who really cares about me, who will be available to help me, and whom I can fall back on; I don't really know what I want; I will never get what I want; I'm powerless and vulnerable and I can't protect myself;. I have no control of myself; I can't discipline myself; My feelings and opinions are unfounded; Other people are not willing or helpful. To the family members, BPD behavior is often very frustrating can feel unfair and punitive - something like this: You have been viewed as overly good and then overly bad; You have been the focus of unprovoked anger or hurtful actions, alternating with periods when the family member acts perfectly normal and very loving; Things that you have said or done have been twisted and used against you; You are accused of things you never did or said? You often find yourself defending and justifying your intentions; You find yourself concealing what you think or feel because you are not heard; You feel manipulated, controlled, and sometimes lied to.

A suspected rapist has been beaten to death by a lynch mob who stormed a jail in India. The man was stripped naked, beaten, stoned and dragged for four miles through the streets of Dimapur tied to a motorbike. Local media reported that the mob intended to publicly hang him but the man succumbed to his injuries on the way on Thursday evening. Instead, his body was strung up on fencing around the city’s Clock Tower landmark on display as men crowded around taking pictures on their phones. At least one protester died and 20 were injured in the ensuing riots as officers fired tear gas and blanks and the mob retaliated with missiles and set police cars on fire. Police said they were powerless to save the man, named locally as 35-year-old Syed Farid Khan, as the crowds numbered in their thousands and included young students in their school uniforms. L.L. Doungal, a police official in the remote Nagaland state, told CNN Khan was believed to be an illegal immigrant from Bangladesh. “There were students in uniform. So, we had to use minimum force,” Doungal added. “We retrieved his body before it could be hung,” Doungal said. “The situation is still volatile.” Khan was accused of raping a girl from a local women’s college multiple times on 24 February. Tensions had been growing in Dimapur between native Naga people and Bangladeshis when organisations including the Naga Students’ Federation and Naga Women Hoho started protesting on Wednesday for his harsh punishment.
I have "Interstellar" on order at Amazon, but from what I'm reading ... another disappointment coming.
The baseball player. Apparently she's going to be on Real Housewives of Orange County, have any of you RHOC watchers seen her yet? As I recall, she's Jesus-freak nuts (as is he).

Found a really great apartment but I have 4 months left on my existing lease. I hate this place and my neighbor and I desperately want out. I will not find an apartment this nice in my area for the price any time soon.. I basically will have to shell out another $5000 over the next 4 mos. I'll basically just move slowly. I don't think my landlords will let me out of my lease nor do I expect them to. I have savings but went through a financial shitstorm in 2008/2009 along with most of the country and I swore I would never take money for granted again. Should I just go for it? New place is $200.00 more a month but its a really great place.

Most clubs have them, dreadful old men who stare for hours playing with themselves trying to get action going. NYSC at 80th still has 3 of the most chronic. Despite multiple police calls they never seem to catch these men in the act. King Troll, you all know him Bart Simpson grey hair, purple birthmark on his head. Baby Bird, constantly moving mouth like a baby bird waiting to be fed, his 'Bill' seeking cock. Crooked tooth troll who grabs ankles. These 3 are responsible for more members leaving than any other trolls, why do they have to catch them in the act? Anyone have a good troll replellant?
The Seagram Building in New Yaak City has been hailed as a masterpiece. Maybe so, but did every other building on the planet have to try and look like that for the next fifty years? The building stands 515 feet (157 m) tall with 38 stories, and was completed in 1958. It stands as one of the finest examples of the functionalist aesthetic and a masterpiece of corporate modernism. It has the worst Energy Star rating of any building in New York, at 3 out of 100. I liked that part.

Tue April 21, 2015 Washington (CNN)President Barack Obama's approval rating is shifting back toward positive territory, as the public's take on the economy hits a new high mark for Obama's tenure, according to a new CNN/ORC poll. For the first time since May of 2013, more Americans polled say they have a positive impression of how Obama is handling the presidency than a negative one: 48% approve of the way Obama is handling his job, while 47% disapprove. While the share saying they approve is not significantly larger than the share disapproving, it's a notable shift in perceptions of Obama's presidency. Obama's numbers are on the rise at the same time the public gives the economy the highest ratings of his presidency. The poll finds 52% describe the U.S. economy as very or somewhat good, while 48% call it very or somewhat poor. That marks the first time since Obama took office that significantly more people describe the economy as "good" than "poor," and only the second time since then that a majority has described the nation's economy as "good." The last time significantly more Americans called the economy "good" than "poor" in CNN/ORC polling was September 2007. [More of article here]:

Lord Greville Janner, long rumoured to have committed sex offences against children in a north England care home and to have been part of a Westminster pedophile network, will not face trial for the 22 charges the British police want to prosecute him over. Criminal prosecutions in England are mounted when the police submit a file of evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, whose lawyers decide if the evidence merits the expense of the state launching trial proceedings. The head of the CPS, Alison Saunders, announced last week that Janner would not stand trial, as doctors were persuaded that he was in the advance stages of dementia and would not be able to follow trial proceedings or instruct his counsel (a criminal trial barrister). The police - and Janner's now middle -aged male victims, some of whom he is alleged to have raped when they were as young as 10- are so furious they are looking into challenging the decision legally. Janner, ironically, has spoke out in the past about how suspected Nazi war criminals should face trial even if they showed signs of dementia. the UK media have revealed this weekend that two weeks ago, Janner signed documents requesting that his membership of The House of Lords - the UK's highest law-making institution - continue. Campaigners are left wondering how Janner, who gave Michael Jackson a tour of parliament in the 90's, can not be fit to stand trial, but be fit enough to pass laws.

I am just beside myself over Aaron Hernandez sent up to the big house for life. That gorgeous, muscular, virile, big-dicked stud locked up with no parole. What a waste of his dick. Couldn't we get overnight visitation rights to service him? He's just too hot to be a murderer. Oh God, I hate the justice system. His hot body covered with them tattoos and that big penis all going to waste in jail. What a rotten world.
I always have, since I was a kid. Loved when the daytime talk shows like "Donahue" and "Geraldo" would have them on. Loved when the "exercise" magazines featured male dance troupes. I almost like men wearing almost nothing than nothing at all. I love finding converted to DVD old stripper videos. Yeah, the mes are greasy and long-haired (80s) and often straight (though I don't always believe that every troupe is sooo straight and there are no gay men. Come on.) Weirdly, nowadays it seems like more and more male dancers have their dancers just in small posing straps with a full back. Makes no difference as it's still hot but anybody know why this is?
Holy FUCK is this a workout! And I only barely made it through the warm-up. He is one gorgeous golden Adonis, though. Watching his cock flop throughout the workout made it that much easier.

There are a lot of architecture-types on DL, we like to think. With all that creativity, could you possibly break with your boss, with your company and with current gawdawful convention and draw something else besides a straight line for a change? Something stylish and pretty would be nice.
I admit- I'll follow hot guys on IG and Twitter, usually the underwear/fitness models ones. They often seem gay but if I find out one is straight, I unfollow. I don't know why, maybe because I felt like I worshipped straight guys my whole life and am sick of giving them attention.
That's because DL invariably votes nearly 100% that he is not. Time Laon got some respect. Laotian fisherman on the Mekong R.

Not sure if a strict cut-n-paste post is worthy of the DL, but here goes anyway. "It’s true that the Beatles maintained a rapacious schedule of touring and recording. Their discography shows a staggering 27 studio albums released in a period of 8 years. Granted, these weren’t 27 separate album sessions—these songs were often recycled into different packages for different countries. But even today, that’s remarkable output. I think even Gucci Mane would admire it." Fletcher Babb, Gawker.com [see offsite link on blackbag.gawker.com]

By request--another great year for the gals.

Must be read to be believed. "I have an old Etonian friend who will make his excuses and leave a dinner party early with his wife if the small talk turns to either of two subjects: London property prices or the problems of ‘‘finding staff’ in the country. They are, he claims the ‘‘lowest forms’’ of conversation." Endlessly name dropping Kate 'Doors to Manual' Middleton: "For my part I was surprised to see the Cambridges - their second child is due later this month - used The Lady. Whilst the venerable women’s weekly, founded in 1885, has long been regarded as the blue stocking bible of upper class household recruitment, the reality is that placing an ad there is fraught with hazards, as my wife, the society milliner Laura Cathcart and I know after placing a series of similar ‘‘Housekeeper wanted’’ box ads in the last year or so. Indeed, the email blitz of CVs from around the world - we received hundreds of applicants per ad - is exhausting, exasperating and hardest possible way to find that perfect housekeeper." Oh, the ghastly Eurotrash he was forced to endure: "We needed a new housekeeper to replace a friendly but hopelessly chaotic young East European couple that we’d recruited (for part time duties) via my sister who had engaged them for cleaning work after she found them selling the Big Issue outside a Tesco’s in Chelsea. We were scrupulous about ensuring they had the correct legal paperwork, paid National Insurance and were self-employed etc. But, with their second child on the way, they decided they were better off moving to Birmingham and claiming benefits. They had been wholly unsuited to the ‘‘front of Hall’’ role at Upton Cressett - which involved some darkly comical house tours when I wasn’t there - making Manuel in Fawlty Towers suddenly seem as polished Michael Fawcett, the former butler/valet at who reportedly used to even squeeze the toothpaste for HRH Prince of Wales. Their main problem was that despite often good intentions, they had no idea of the value of anything; or how to look after anything, especially clothes." Oh, the horreur! "I noted that the Cambridges' ad specifically stated that the role requires ‘‘the caring for’’ the owners’ garments. After I specified that a Redwood & Feller navy wool suit should be sent to the dry cleaner, I later saw to my horror the trousers and jacket hanging on the line to dry. They’d been put in the washing machine and were ruined. In her defence, our housekeeper told me she’d never heard of ‘dry cleaning’." How dare the help work to their stated hours! "Within three months, she announced she was taking off a a month for a back operation. She also turned out to be a clock watcher. After we gave her our winter schedule of weekend dinner entertaining, she said she couldn’t cope. She wanted us to hire more help. The other problem is that if you hire people who are not local, especially if they have their own family miles away, they quickly get bored with being stuck in the country however idyllic the cottage you provide." Let's name drop some more: "I am reminded of the advice of Wendy, Countess of Caledon, who was the first wife of the Earl of Caledon and chatelaine of his stately home in Northern Ireland. ''We hired several British couples and shipped them over from England. But they never lasted. I remember one good cook and housekeeper who was a hardworker. But her husband - who was meant to clean the silver and do thedriving was just plain lazy."
Do not talk to me as if I were her. I am NOT Shirley MacLaine. I may look like her, in your eyes, but I am NOT Shirley MacLaine. I may move like her, but I am NOT Shirley MacLaine. I may even sound like her, but I am NOT Shirley MacLaine. Sincerely yours,
The Sequel's Sequel thread filled up. I don't think anyone has started a new thread. If so, please let me know. I that last night's episode of Looking was amazing. I primarily like Groff for his singing skills, but he's a good actor, too. I'm not having luck in the Hamilton lottery. I suppose I could just show up after a show to grab a photo with him? He seems pretty open to such things. Is that okay to do? How long after the play's end does it usually take for the actors to come out? Thanks!

OK, I always used to admire the guy as a straight shooter (no pun intended)...but an honest, down-to-earth bloke and a great guitarist. Sadly, I found his book totally self-congratulatory, DULL, and full of blame for Mick Jagger, who basically SAVED HIS ASS on numerous occasions while he was in a druggy haze and saved the band he so loves keeping Keith in fine riches. He even criticized the guy's penis size. WTF?? He also acted like a totally out-of-it father who used his young son as his guardian while he was nodding off on some drug or other. He's honest about it, great, but not remorseful. I have to admire him for staying married to Patti Hansen for so long and raising two more kids out of the limelight more or less, but good lord, he takes obliviousness and blame to the next level in this book. Anyone else read it? I wouldn't mind hashing (again no pun...) it out!

The 31-year-old actress graced the cover of Glamour magazine and dished details on the perks of fame and her lead roles in the business. Jessica Chastain supports a woman's world in Hollywood. "I'm really, really supportive of women in Hollywood. I love Meryl Streep. She's such an incredible actress. But I feel like she's the only one in her age group who gets those parts. I'd like to see Jessica Lange in a movie again, you know? Or Susan Sarandon. Why isn't Viola Davis a lead in a film? She's one of the greatest actresses alive," she said of her fellow famous starlets. "And where are the Asian actors and actresses? I'm not saying, 'We don't want movies about men.' I'm just saying, 'Come on, all the men I know love women. So let's also have some stories about these women. Let's write something for them, guys — and let's make room for women writers, too.'" "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them" star further discussed with the mag what it is like for her to play the lead in a film. "When I play a female lead, like the role in 'Zero Dark Thirty,' even if she's strong, I try to give her as many flaws as I can," Chastain explained. "I think to play a female hero without faults is actually doing a disservice to women. I think it's more interesting to see women on-screen with flaws. Then it's not this unreasonable expectation that society then would put on you: 'Well, a strong women can't be like this …'" Chastain's current success, including two Oscar nominations and a Golden Globe win, is a lot to handle. If it had happened for her as a teenager, "I would have been a disaster,” she said. “If I was 19 and I had the attention that I'm getting now, I would have just said stupid things.” "I would have partied more. All these expensive dinners and people giving me champagne? All these stupid things that we criticize 19-year-olds for doing when they're famous, I would have done." The red-headed beauty also touched on being bullied in her younger years. "[As a child] I was told every day at school that I was ugly. And that no one wanted to be my friend. The most cruel things," she said. "If I can do anything to help young girls and to be a cheerleader for people who sometimes have low self-esteem, I want to do that." While fans will get to see Chastain this fall on the big-screen in "Interseller" and "A Most Violent Year," they won't be seeing much of her off-screen life. "I think it's important not to talk about it. In the future I will. If everything continues on a path, of course it'll be part of the conversation," she said. "But until it gets there, I don't want to put any unexpected pressure on something that is so personal and so precious. It's too delicate right now."

For me it's Alan and Peter. Alan is French-Canadian, tall lanky and femme. Pretty in a French-Canadian way, but not offensively beautiful. Wavey auburn hair and a smooth body. Peter is Portuguese and shorter with a thick body and a magnificent bubble butt. Thick forearms with tattoos, but not so much ink that it's gross. Hairy chest and legs and an olive completion. They're been together for several years and genuinely love each other. I've lost count the number of times I've rubbed one out fantasizing about them. I can't believe I can still look them in the eyes after the perverse things I've had them doing in my mind.
Pucillo leans on friendship to ease difficult decision Updated: 03/27/2015 Ohio State’s Mike Pucillo was a three-time All-American and 2008 NCAA Division I Champion at Ohio State. By Jason Bryant, Mat Talk Online; Special for TheOpenMat Mike Pucillo nervously held his phone 15 months ago as he sat in his apartment trying to find the right words. For months, the NCAA wrestling champion from Ohio State had tried time and again to share his biggest secret, but he couldn’t bring himself to verbalize two words. Finally, on a December morning, Pucillo reached for his phone and tapped out a lengthy text message to his best friend and college teammate, Reece Humphrey. The gist of the message was this: I’m gay. ...

Add Jeremy Renner to the rash of holiday season break-ups -- his wife wants out of their marriage after just 10 months. According to docs filed earlier this month, Renner's wife Sonni Pacheco is seeking the split over irreconcilable differences -- but get this ... she's demanding he return her stolen passport, birth certificate and SS card. The couple just copped to their secret marriage back in September ... and every indication is the break-up will be nasty. In her divorce docs ... Pacheco says they have a prenup, but adds it should be torn up because it was based on fraud. There's no further detail about what she means by "fraud." Pacheco wants the moon ... she's asking for spousal support and physical custody of their 1-year-old daughter, Ava Berlin. She's also looking to use the Range Rover until the smoke clears, and for Renner to pony up her rent and moving expenses.
Is he bisexual? I know he has a son and has been engaged in the past, but do you guys think he pings at all? He is currently playing Fiyero in the Wicked tour. He sure is an Instagram whore, loves posting photos of himself in his underwear. Not that any of us should mind that in the least, we should be grateful that he's such a whore! Seriously, who does he have taking some of these photos of him? A guy or a girl? I really loved this photo without the smiley face. He had the best bulge profile!

It's a monstrosity. Two New York magazine critics were just on NPR discussing it. The architecture critic panned it. The art critic loved it. I distrust the art critic's opinion. I think he's influenced by other factors. The NYTimes said, " It ratifies Chelsea and the once-funky far West Village as something closer to what the Upper East Side used to be circa 1966...Those neighborhoods serve up the same cocktail of money, real estate, fashion and art - except that the financiers, Hollywood stars and other haute bourgeois bohemians stand in for the old Social Register crowd."

Has to do with victim statement blaming a home invasion crime for a three-year-olds lasting fear of black men. For me it's one more piece of evidence against victim impact statements. For all of us, this might be an opportunity for a really juicy 600-level racial fight. It's been awhile.
I'm watching WE TV and two commercials just came on in sequence. The first was for dry twat disease where ladies can no longer get wet and as a result intercourse is painful.

I'm fascinated by this. Ryan Patrick often seems to be high. In the linked vid he tugs furiously at his soft dick and every once in a while he gets a crazy look in his eyes. I've never done meth or had sex with anyone on meth but I understand anecdotally these are telltale signs. Do these guys smoke or shoot up immediately before the cameras roll How do they get away with that? Are the other performers aware? Is the director? Camera operator? Any other scenes? Any other experiences?
Redford won for Sundance. Burt should have gotten one years ago for the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theater.

Is it too late for him to get one for his movie output?

Ed Sheeran is spilling the T on his pal Harry Styles. In a recent interview with New Zealand’s ZM Online, Sheeran was asked whether he wrote “Little Things” about the One Direction member’s… member. Related: Ed Sheeran Took Taylor Swift’s Dancers To A Gay Strip Club “He definitely hasn’t got a little thing, so, no, I did not write ‘Little Things’ about little things,” Ed replied. The ginger singer also revealed that it was indeed Harry in a nude photo that went viral back in 2012. In it, a young man stands in the bathroom taking a dic pic in the mirror. At the time Styles denied it was him. “Did you know Harry leaked that picture himself? He leaked his own picture….I think it’s amazing. He was just like ‘no one knows.’” Well, we do now.
If you are a government official, and you are caught engaged in any criminal behavior, then your punishment is tenfold. A misdemeanor- speeding, running a red light, shoplifting, jaywalking, assault- is an automatic 6 months in jail. A felony is automatically 10 years in prison. If you are a federal official or law enforcement officers, then any violation of the law is automatic life in prison.
A politician from the Czech Republic is claiming to be the President of a brand new “independent sovereign state” in the Balkans. Vit Jedlicka, a member of the Conservative Party of Free Citizens, is the self-appointed president of “Liberland,” a 7sq km “country” (only the Vatican and Monaco are smaller) where taxes are optional and there is no military. It is situated on the banks of the Danube between Serbia and Croatia in an unclaimed no-man's land, or terra nullious territory, meaning that neither country has ever held full sovereignty over the area. Thus Jedlicka claims that his new country has been created entirely within the boundaries of international law. Czech TN news website says: "It's not entirely clear to what extent the activists are being serious, but they have turned up at the location of their 'state,' where they have raised the flag." Jedlicka, however, seems to be completely sincere about the establishment of the new country. A statement announcing the creation of Liberland read: “The objective of the founders of the new state is to build a country where honest people can prosper without being oppressed by governments making their lives unpleasant through the burden of unnecessary restrictions and taxes.” Its motto reads: “To live and let live.” Jedlicka, 31, said that if Croatia or Serbia wanted to oppose the creation of the country then he would only put up a “passive defence.” Speaking to TIME Magazine, he said: “We will move, but we will keep out claim to the country,” and added that he was still waiting for a diplomatic response from Liberland’s neighbours. He claimed that Liberland had been founded as a political stunt to attempt to garner media attention: “It started a little bit like a protest. But now it’s really turning out to be a real project with real support.” The country has apparently already received around 20,000 applications for citizenshipa. Jedlicka estimates that they will receive as many as 100,000 applications by the end of week. Some people, he says, have already made plans to relocate. The country’s website provides details of how to apply to be a citizen of Liberland, which include sending an email of introduction and an optional CV.
This is the thread were we post news about and discuss astronomy. We've had some cool threads lately, and I thought it would be good to have future posts appended to one thread.

Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot has responded to the criticism surrounding her casting, calling it "empty talk". Fans of the DC Comics character saw the casting decision as misguided, although questions were based less around her fairly short CV and more around the fact that she was "too skinny". Gadot took on the role of Wonder Woman in the DC Entertainment/Warner Bros film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and will also portray her in a solo film that will also use a female director. Henry Cavill will return as Superman in the sequel, with Jesse Eisenberg playing villain Lex Luthor. Speaking to Robot Underdog, Gadot addressed the personal attacks on her ability to play the character head-on. "They said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small… They said my head was too big and my body was like a broomstick. "I can take anything. It’s just empty talk. I can understand that part of what I’m doing means being exposed. And part of being exposed is being under fire." She added that when she was younger it was more difficult to take criticism, but now she finds it mostly amusing. Director Zack Snyder said the actress had a "magical quality" that makes her perfect for the role. "Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favourite in the DC Universe. "Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role," he said.
so I can't really search for one on ebay or anywhere else for that matter. The always seem to appear on British (Swinging London) movies from the '60s. What would you call them?
In another report, they said his spine was 80% severed at the neck. ______________________ Freddie Gray, a Baltimore man injured during an arrest by police last week, has died at Shock Trauma, family members and a hospital spokeswoman said Sunday. Gray’s death comes a week after his arrest and just hours after a protest was held at Baltimore police headquarters. Gray’s stepfather, Richard Shipley, who has acted as a family spokesman since the incident, confirmed that his stepson passed away Sunday. "He’s gone,” Shipley said. “What else is there to say?” A Shock Trauma spokeswoman confirmed Gray’s death, but could not provide any further details Sunday morning. Protests are slated to continue Sunday, one group said. It’s unclear how Gray, 27, was injured, and police have not released any documents or reports relating to the case. Four bicycle officers tried to stop Gray about 9 a.m. on April 12 in the 1600 block of W. North Avenue for an alleged violation that police have not disclosed. He ran, police said, and the officers caught him and restrained him on the ground while awaiting backup. The few details released have deepened protestors’ frustrations. According to a police timeline he was fine when he was loaded into a van to be taken to the district station, but was injured by the time he got out. He suffered a broken vertebra and an injured voice box, his family said. “What happened to Freddie was unnecessary and uncalled for,” the Rev. Jamal Harrison Bryant of the Empowerment Temple boomed to protesters who marched from Gilmor Homes to the police station Saturday. “All of those police officers involved need to be held accountable and answer for what they did, and need to be terminated from their positions.” Deputy Commissioner Jerry Rodriguez released no additional information Saturday but said police have commissioned a “blue-ribbon” panel to review the case once the investigation has been handed over to prosecutors. Gray underwent spinal surgery and remained in a coma amid Saturday’s protest. Police blocked off streets for the protesters and set up barricades around the station. The protesters’ chants included, “No justice, no peace, we don’t need you on our streets.”

I really don't care what anyone thinks about Hillary Clinton on a personal level, but I'm already tired of the sexist, ageist empty slams at her looks and her past. Say what you will, but she is a woman who has spent the majority of her life in public service and at least deserves the courtesy of being attacked for her ideas and not how old she is. But Rand Paul has no such filters, and he's showing himself to be the meanest, most thuggish candidate in the race at this point. "I'm starting to worry that when Hillary Clinton travels, there's gonna need to be two planes – one for her and her entourage, and one for her baggage," Paul said. “I'm concerned that the plane with the baggage is really getting heavy and teetering.” He's one to talk about baggage, given the similarities between him and his Teabircher daddy. Steve M.: I get the feeling Paul is just getting warmed up. His confrontations with reporters suggest that he's not just running a tough campaign -- he viscerally has a mean streak, and we're going to see more of it as the months progress. I think that's really going to help him in the primary race, although I think there are too many hawks with too much money for him to actually to actually win the nomination. If he does somehow emerge victorious, I think most Americans are going to think he's too nasty to be president. But meanwhile, his party will cheer, which will only encourage him. So expect a lot more of this, and expect the insults to get a lot uglier. Yes, Rand Paul viscerally has a mean streak. Shall we revisit his 2010 campaign, when a staffer stomped the head of a MoveOn member at a rally and the best he could do is offer a weak sauce appeal for people to stick to the issues? The company he keeps could fill several planes with baggage.
I'd fuck him. I'd gag him first. But I'd still fuck him.

A transgender man looks set to win Men's Health annual "Ultimate Guy" competition, while British Vogue declares that "trans is having a moment". Is this a watershed moment in terms of visibility and rights for the group, asks Theo Merz In almost every respect, Aydian Dowling is a typical cover star for a men’s fitness magazine. With his defined abs, stylish facial hair, puppy-dog eyes and set of tattoos across his torso, it is not hard to see why the 27-year-old is the strong favourite to win the popular vote in Men’s Health’s annual “Ultimate Guy” competition – a contest that will turn a member of the public into a professional male model. Only the mastectomy scars beneath his pecs reveal that the New Yorker was, in fact, born female, beginning the transition from woman to man five years ago. “I started bodybuilding because I wanted my outer body to feel more masculine, like my inner soul does,” says Dowling, who runs his own clothing company and is married to a woman. “I definitely was not expecting all the support, but I’m so happy and proud of the [transgender] community for using its loud voice and realising that we could really do it.” And it seems this voice is only becoming louder, with a host of news stories in recent months focussing on transgender people and their lives. The Olympic gold medal winner and reality TV star Bruce Jenner, 65, has given interviews about his plans to transition into a woman, a process he says he has been “getting ready for” all his life. The former British boxing promoter Frank Maloney, 61, announced last year he was undergoing a sex change and wished to be known as Kellie, while Chelsea Manning – formerly Bradley Manning, the American soldier jailed for 35 years following the WikiLeaks scandal – has spoken out from behind bars about her transition. And the most recent issue of British Vogue included an article headed: “Man, woman, neither, both? Blurred gender lines are the latest cultural fixation,” which went on to promise that “trans is having a moment”. Though some might balk at the suggestion a transgender identity is the new must-have accessory – especially in the light of reports of transgender teens’ suicides following rejection by their families - the idea that we have reached a watershed in terms of rights for the group has been echoed elsewhere. Last year, TIME magazine ran a cover story headlined “The Transgender Tipping Point: America’s next civil rights frontier,” featuring an interview with Laverne Cox, a trans actress and star of the hit TV show Orange is the New Black, in which she plays a transgender inmate of a women’s prison. “We are in a place now where more and more trans people want to come forward and say, ‘This is who I am,’” Cox said in the article. She added: “Social media has been a huge part of it and the internet has been a huge part of it, where we’re able to have a voice in a way that we haven’t been able before…we are setting the agenda in a different way.”

A Hungarian man faces 155 years in the slammer after being found guilty of running a gay sex slave operation out of his Miami home, The Miami Herald reports. 25-year-old Andras Janos Vass (pictured) was convicted of human trafficking and racketeering by a jury in Florida last Thursday. Prosecutors claim he and two henchmen ran a company called Never Sleep Inc., where they forced young men to prostitute themselves for up to 20 hours a day. According to court documents, Vass met three victims, all in their early 20s, online. He told them they would make between $3,000 and $5,000 a month working as male escorts and offered to fly them to New York City. When the men arrived, however, they soon found themselves forced to live in a cramped one-bedroom apartment with five other male prostitutes and perform sex acts literally around the clock, either with johns or on live web cams. The victims were not paid for the work, though Vass and his fellow pimps raked in around $40,000 each per month. To prevent the victims from escaping, Vass confiscated their travel documents and threatened them and their families back in Hungary. In 2012, he moved the operation from New York City to Miami, where he was eventually caught. All three victims testified against Vass last week. A jury deliberated for barely 30 minutes before reaching a guilty verdict. Vass’ henchmen, Gabor Acs and Viktor Berki, a former policeman in Hungary, are both still awaiting trial. The 25-year-old pimp now faces a minimum of 21 years and a maximum of 155 years in prison. His sentencing is scheduled for June 2.

Manhattan parents are nuts-- tearing their hair out to get their kids into the "right" schools (at $40,000/yr!) so their kids will get into the Ivy League. Some do definitely but many also go to state colleges too. It would probably be a stronger guarantee of Harvatd acceptance if the parents just sent their kids to the local public schools but donated $40,000/ year to Harvard directly.

Gorgeous couple, any information?
It appears that Bobby Flay’s relationship is on the rocks. The 50-year-old “Iron Chef” separated from his wife, “Law and Order: SVU” star Stephanie March, three weeks ago, a source confirmed to Page Six. Flay moved out of their shared New York City apartment and both Flay and March, 40, have retained lawyers for a possible divorce. Although TMZ reports Flay didn’t immediately rush to March’s side when her appendix burst in 2014, possibly causing tension in the marriage, our source says the pair were in separate cities at the time and Flay flew to her side as soon as he could. The former couple didn’t celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary in February either — Flay reportedly spent time in Florida at a wine festival. This would be Flay’s third divorce and March’s first. They have no children together.

“There’s been shameless rhetoric about my state and this law and its intention all over the internet,” Mike Pence said. “People are trying to make it about one particular issue, and now you’re doing that as well.” “The issue here is: is tolerance a two-way street or not?” Pence said. “There’s a lot of talk about tolerance in this country having to do with people on the left. Here Indiana steps forward to protect the constitutional rights and privileges of freedom of religion for people of faith in our state, and this avalanche of intolerance that’s been poured on our state is outrageous.” Pence reiterated that he will not make LGBT citizens a protected class. “It doesn’t have anything to do with this law,” he objected. “This isn’t about individual rights or preferential rights for anyone.” Pence said the business industry backlash, which already includes the collapse of a deal between Indianapolis and Angie’s List, was due to the “gross mischaracterization” of the law. “Frankly, some of the media coverage of this has been shameless and reckless,” Pence said. Stephanopoulos finally asked if Pence thought it should be legal to discriminate against gays or lesbians. “Come on!” Pence responded. “Hoosiers don’t believe in discrimination.” Stephanopoulos reiterated the question. “You’re trying to make this issue about something else,” Pence said. “I signed the bill. We’re going to explain to people who don’t understand it.” See link for video
Country star backs out of Sandy Hook benefit after gun-rights backlash Tim McGraw’s plan to headline charity concert prompts outrage from gun advocates, leading to singer Billy Currington to quit the bill Grady Smith, Friday 17 April 2015 13.08 EDT Controversy surrounding a Sandy Hook benefit concert has caused a firestorm in the country music world this week, persuading at least one major star to back out of the event. Tim McGraw recently announced that he would headline a 17 July benefit show, with scheduled openers Billy Currington and Chase Bryant, in Hartford, Connecticut, for an organisation called Sandy Hook Promise, which was founded in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook elementary school shooting in order to “protect children from gun violence so no other parent experiences the loss of their child”. McGraw has a personal connection to the Sandy Hook shooting through one of the members of his touring band. Fiddle player Dean Brown is a longtime friend of Mark Barden, who lost his son Daniel in the tragedy. “Sandy Hook Promise teaches that we can do something to protect our children from gun violence,” McGraw said in his announcement. “I want to be a part of that promise – as a father and as a friend.” On 15 April, conservative news outlet Breitbart posted a story about the concert with the headline Country Singers Tim McGraw, Billy Currington Headlining Gun Control Fundraiser. The piece quickly got tweeted by veteran country star Travis Tritt, who added “Please say it ain’t so!” and as it propagated through social media, a tidal wave of angry tweets and comments began to appear on McGraw and Currington’s pages from zealous gun-rights advocates. More than a few commenters have compared the stars to the Dixie Chicks, who famously burned bridges in the country world when lead singer Natalie Maines said she was “ashamed” of former president George W Bush during a concert in 2003. Currington, who is one of the opening acts for McGraw’s summer tour, appeared to have no knowledge that he was even part of the benefit show. “I didn’t sign up for shit. Just hearing about it like u are,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet. McGraw released a statement to the Washington Post on Thursday, clarifying his viewpoint: “Let me be clear regarding the concert for Sandy Hook given much of the erroneous reporting thus far. As a gun owner, I support gun ownership. I also believe that with gun ownership comes the responsibility of education and safety – most certainly when it relates to what we value most, our children. I can’t imagine anyone who disagrees with that. Through a personal connection, I saw firsthand how the Sandy Hook tragedy affected families and I felt their pain. The concert is meant to do something good for a community that is recovering.” Sandy Hook Promise also attempted to clarify their stance in a statement released to Saving Country Music. “Sandy Hook Promise supports the Second Amendment and is not anti-gun. We recognize an individual’s right to bear arms and support millions of law-abiding citizens in the United States who own firearms … We support policy that helps identify, intervene and stop at-risk individuals from hurting themselves or others. And, we support laws that will help to keep firearms out of the hands of dangerously ill people and criminals, as well as out of the reach of children to prevent unintentional shooting deaths and injuries that have become much too frequent.” Despite the reassurances from McGraw and Sandy Hook Promise, Currington nonetheless backed out of the concert on Thursday. In a Facebook post, he wrote: “I’ve never been one to take on controversial issues - I’m a singer. I do feel strongly about honouring and supporting the Sandy Hook community and will be making a donation to a local organisation. I appreciate people’s freedom and passion for whatever cause they want to support, however, I am choosing to step aside from this fundraiser and will focus instead on the rest of the tour dates as I look forward to being on the road with Tim and Chase and having a blast with all of the fans.” Fledgling country artist Chase Bryant has been mostly left out of the controversy thus far, and has remained silent on social media for the past three days. The Guardian has reached out to his record label regarding the Sandy Hook concert, but requests for comments have not been returned at this time.

The desperation from the right has gone from pitiful to downright ridiculous. A conservative “news” source reported Sunday morning that Hillary Clinton deleted emails from her personal server not because they included information that would incriminate her for some invisible crime, but because they contained love notes from her plethora of lesbian lovers. It wasn’t the Onion or National Report. The breaking story stupidity came from the “news and media website” Patriot Nation, whose Facebook page has more than 600,000 ignorant bigots following it. In a link to the National Enquirer of internet “news,” the baseless accusation were reportedly broken by “a high level source” inside Clinton’s campaign. The original article uses such tabloid terms as “according to a source,” “said a Clinton insider,” and “said the high-ranking source.” Very compelling. All in an article touted by the idiot who wrote it as “a world exclusive investigation.” According to the story: [T]he list of Hillary’s lesbian lovers includes a beauty in her early 30s who has often traveled with Hillary; a popular TV and movie star; the daughter of a top government official; and a stunning model who got a career boost after allegedly sleeping with Hillary. Hillary made the huge mistake of mixing public and private messages while using her personalized email server – before risking a massive scandal by refusing to make the documents public. Does this mean they’ve given up on BENGHAZI! and Whitewater? Are they conceding that Clinton didn’t have Vince Foster summarily executed because he knew too much? How outraged should the country be now that this “breakthrough” has been exposed? The real question is just how dumb can these people be? First of all, nobody but the right-wing bigots who would never vote for a woman for President anyway would have a single f**k to give if Hillary Clinton turned out to be a lesbian. Secondly, grow up, you idiots.
A day after Hillary Clinton declared she’s running for president, the massive tombstone of Hugh Rodham in Scranton, Pennsylvania was knocked over. Coincidence? Nah. Let’s just call this what it is: some assh*le walked onto hallowed ground, pushed over the tombstone of the father of someone they hate, and then walked away. Now think about that. I think Dick Cheney is a horrible man, someone who’s done more to hurt this nation and our legacy than anyone in recent history. But it wouldn’t occur to me to walk into a cemetery and turn over one of his parent’s tombstones. Would it to you? I can’t think of anything worse, actually. But yes, this happened in Pennsylvania. The funeral director who oversaw Rodham’s funeral said this tragedy could’ve been related to “weather.” Yeh, the wind pushed over a massive granite tombstone. The weather did it.
According to Andy Cohen, she's supposed to release a new song in a few days. Has anyone else heard this? I went on the google and he didn't say anything.

‘The X-Files’ Revival: Mitch Pileggi to Reprise Role on Fox April 20, 2015 | 02:48PM PT, Seth Kelley Mitch Pileggi will reprise his role as Walter Skinner in Fox’s upcoming six-episode “X-Files” revival. Pileggi announced he would re-join the cast on Twitter on Monday, saying, “Walter Skinner will once again be getting all grumpy and bitchy with his two wayward kids.” Rumors of Pileggi’s return ran wild sans confirmation since March, when David Duchovny let slip to David Letterman that Pileggi and “the Cigarette-Smoking Man” would re-join the show. Shortly after, Duchovny backpedaled in an interview with Variety. “I’m not even sure they’re signed up yet. I guess I spoke out of turn,” he said. “But I assume they will. I assume we’ll have as many people as we can.” Pileggi will join Duchovny and co-lead Gillian Anderson who previously confirmed their participation in the revival.

Priest revealed to be former gay porn star 2nd February 2015, 2:33 PM, Gaz Jeffries A priest in Puerto Rico is refusing to resign – after he was exposed as a former gay porn star. San Juan Pastor Jose Santiago faced an outcry after explicit videos spread online of him engaging in camsex with another man. According to the Mirror, the preacher has defended himself from calls to resign, saying that he is no longer a homosexual – and is married to a woman. He said: “In those days I was gay and participated in homosexual activities, but God touched me, God transformed me, God gave me a woman who loves me and she loves my past. “I haven’t seen any of these films in years. I don’t receive any money for them and it’s part of a life that is over. “We have all done things we regret. That part of my life was before I knew God.” In October, the Pope vowed to investigate allegations that a diocese in northern Italy includes priests who posted naked photos on gay websites. An investigation in November shed light on a “large gay scene” for priests in Ireland, with a number frequenting local gay bars. One priest, ‘Fr C’ – admitted to being in a long-term gay relationship, while another, known as ‘Fr L’, admitted to hooking up with a fellow priest after being ordained.
I know, I know... straight porn? EW. WUT? BRAH NO? But I find myself sometimes attracted to watching straight porn as I keep my eyes GLUED on the dude. Does anyone have a favorite male porn star who only does straight porn but you still try and catch their stuff? For me, at the moment, it is Johnny Castle. Amazing body, great cock, and always so aggressive.

It doesn't make any sense. She had all the resources to raise the child as a single parent. A week after she gave the baby up, she knew she made a mistake and begged the agency to give her back the baby. They refused. She spent over 20 years trying to get her baby back.
My gym provides free T shirts, shorts and jock straps in the locker room. Many guys use them but I can't bring myself to even try them on - for both hygiene and fashion reasons. The clothes are all washed obviously but the thought of wearing someone else's clothes still creeps me out. Further, the clothes are all grey cotton like you might see in the army. It's mostly older straight guys who wear the "free" clothes while younger guys in better shape wear more stylish, more form fitting gym clothes they bring themselves. What would you do?

Prosecutors' decision to not charge a Labour peer over claims of historic child abuse could be challenged by the police who investigated him. Lord Greville Janner, whose home and House of Lords office have previously been searched over the allegations, will not face any further action, the Crown Prosecution Service announced today, citing the 86-year-old's advanced dementia. A senior Leicestershire Police officer said Janner was accused of "some of the most serious sexual crimes imaginable" and said he feared what the decision would do to the alleged victims. He said the force was "exploring what possible legal avenues there may be to challenge". Janner is accused of "befriending" a children's care home manager to allow him access to the children, whom he allegedly abused between the 1970s and 1980s. The CPS acknowledged the claims were "extremely serious" but said Janner "is not fit to take part in any proceedings, there is no treatment for his condition, and there is no current or future risk of offending".

An Irish architect obsessed with stabbing women during sex acts has been handed a mandatory life sentence at Dublin high court over a murder that has both repelled and fascinated Ireland. The trial of Graham Dwyer for the killing his “sex slave”, Elaine O’Hara, has shone a light on the dark underworld of the Republic’s violent sadomasochistic scene. Dwyer was convicted last month of luring O’Hara to the Dublin mountains on 22 August 2012, stabbing her to death and then concealing her body. The evidence was among the most graphic and disturbing heard by a jury in Ireland. During a two-month trial, jurors were shown a series of disturbing videos of the 42-year-old architect stabbing O’Hara while she was tied up. In some videos, she was heard begging him to “please stop.” O’Hara was not the only woman filmed by Dwyer, who sometimes simulated stabbing those he tied up. The Garda Siochana is now attempting to track down the other women, depicted by Dwyer as his “slaves”. Some did not know they were being filmed because they were blindfolded. O’Hara emerged during the trial as a deeply troubled, lonely woman who yearned for a baby but also had severe mental health issues – vulnerable quarry for a dangerous predator on S&M websites such as Dwyer. The court heard a series of text messages from the start of their relationship in 2007 between O’Hara, 36, and Dwyer in which he was referred to as “Master” or “Sir” and her as “Slave”. Overall there were 2,600 text messages filled with rape and murder fantasies. When O’Hara was hospitalised after a suicide attempt in August 2012, one of Dwyer’s text messages read: “You must be punished for trying to kill yourself without me.” And when she pleaded with Dwyer to make her pregnant, he replied in another text trying to persuade her to help him kill another woman. “Ok, a life for a life. Help me take one and I will give you one,” he texted her. Dwyer visited an alternative sexual underground website to fulfil his deep-seated fantasies to spill women’s blood during sex acts. He came across O’Hara, who had a history of self harm. Early on in their master-slave relationship, Dwyer told O’Hara via another mobile phone text: “My urge to rape, stab, kill is huge. You have to help me control or satisfy it.” In September 2013 – more than a year after O’Hara had gone missing – a dog-walker discovered her bodyat Kilakee in the Dublin mountains. Two days later, her bags and mobile phones were found at a reservoir in Roundwood in nearby Co Wicklow where Dwyer had dumped them. No murder weapon was recovered from either scene and the autopsy of the victim could not establish exactly how she died. There was no direct DNA evidence linking Dwyer to these two sites. Police identified Dwyer as the killer after retrieving text messages and videos from the mobile phones. Dwyer always maintained the facade of being a respectable, successful professional and family man. His main hobby outside work at a Dublin architects’ office was flying model aeroplanes. Although Dwyer’s wife and fellow architect, Gemma, had no idea about her husband’s alternative lifestyle and fetish fantasies, a figure from his past did – his ex-girlfriend and mother of his first child, Emer McShea. She gave evidence in court that Dwyer told her in the early 1990s of his fantasies about stabbing women while having sex with them. McShea told the trial that Dwyer’s fantasies got as far as leaving a kitchen knife by their pillows when they were in bed having sex. Following Dwyer’s conviction, detectives in Dublin are examining a series of other unsolved murders involving fatal stabbings. According to a Garda source, they include the death of 17-year-old schoolgirl Raonaid Murray. She was killed 14 years ago after being attacked in Glenageary, south Dublin after returning from a night out with friends in the pub. No one has ever been convicted of her killing.

Does anyone sunbathe anymore? I like the look of a tanned body. I admit I do sit in the sun. It also makes me feel relaxed. Why is that? Is it all that vitamin D? All the fresh air?
If I've just started seeing a guy and he wants to "take it slow" should I just forget about him and date other guys? I really like him and he is the one who pursued me initially but if I'm being politely rejected I'd rather not stick around or give him any more attention.

All hail the new member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Inducted by Miley Cyrus, who wore pasties with a J on each nipple as a tribute to the long-running rocker. I've been a fan of JJ since the early '80s, and I think of her as my guardian rockstar. In various celebrity story/rock threads here, she's been described as down to earth, sincere & laid back. This thread may not hit 600, but I paid my $18 and this is what I want to post.

Great show, check it out DL! It's about a non-conventional high school teacher ad her family. I know, I know…but really it's not what you think and it's great to see a non-American point of view. She even has a gay teenage son and they don't shy away from him, dating, kissing and having sex…so refreshing. The added bonus is everyone is HOT! Especially the oldest son and Rita is sexy as well. I hear that there's an American remake being made with Anna Gunn in the lead (she plays Skyler on Breaking Bad). As much as I love Anna Gunn, I don't think an American studio will do it justice, even on cable.
Is he going to be one of those actors who becomes a proud gay man at the age of 80?

They may have been the crowning glory for any right-thinking Tudor gentleman, but it appears the traditional codpiece may be a little too much for American television viewers. The stars of Wolf Hall, the BBC’s new period drama based on the novels of Hilary Mantel, have disclosed they have been issued with “smaller”-than average codpieces, out of respect for viewers' sensibilities. Mark Rylance, who stars as Thomas Cromwell in the forthcoming BBC series, said programme-makers had decided on “very small codpieces” which had to be “tucked away”. He suggested allowances had been made amid concerns about the taste of modern audiences, particularly in America, who “may not know exactly what’s going on down there”. It is one of few concessions permitted by programme-makers, who have otherwise gone to remarkable lengths to ensure historical accuracy, including trips to Shakespeare’s Globe to learn sword-fighting, lessons in etiquette and bowing, and a comprehensive study on spoons. Mantel has given her seal of approval to the production, issuing a statement of glowing praise for how it has been adapted on screen. Saying she was pleased programme-makers had resisted the temptation to “patronise” the Tudors to make them “cute”, she said: “My expectations were high and have been exceeded.” When asked about the costumes in a Q&A to launch the BBC show, alongside actors Damian Lewis and Claire Foy, Rylance said they “did take a while to put on” but praised the overall effect. “I think the codpieces are too small,” he added. “I think it was a direction from our American producers PBS [the US public service broadcaster] – they like very small codpieces which always seemed to be tucked away.” When asked to clarify, he said: “I wasn’t personally disappointed by the codpieces: I’m a little more used to them than other people from being at the Globe for ten years. “But I can see for modern audiences, perhaps more in America, they may not know exactly what’s going on down there.”) Lewis, who plays Henry VIII, hinted there had been some on-set “giggling” over the matter, with the curtain-like effect of the male costumes finally making it a moot point. “Codpieces at the time in the Tudor period were a symbol of virility and actually men of the court were encouraged to wear prominent cod pieces,” he said. “It was a symbol of your virility, your derring-do, your sense of adventure. “They were encouraged, it was a fashion, and Henry liked them.” Colin Callender, the executive producer, later clarified there had been “no hidden codpiece memo” handed down by PBS or the BBC. Foy, who plays Anne Boleyn, added costumes had been created and worn with meticulous detail, with no zips or Velcro added for ease and constant vigilance about whether everyone on set had the correct attire. As well as teaching the cast to swordfight and being taught the difference between the bows suitable for Henry VIII and Elizabeth I, programme-makers also paid particular attention to who would be joining in the relatively new fashion for using a spoon. “We had to make a decision on whether Thomas More was a spoon kind of guy,” Peter Kosminsky, the director, said. “Anne Boleyn went for spoons in a big way.” The team relied heavily on the scholarship of Hilary Mantel, who spent five years researching the Tudor court before writing the Man Booker Prize-winning novels. Peter Straughan, the Oscar-nominated screenwriter, said had known “absolutely nothing” about Tudor history beforehand, joking he had kept a copy of the “Dummies Guide to Elizabethans” on his desk to help him along. Callender added he hoped the drama would perfectly suit modern audiences, who have already enjoyed high-tension programmes such as Breaking Bad. Referring to Cromwell’s mixed reputation, he said: “Modern audiences are fascinated by characters that cross moral lines, trapped between doing the right thing and surviving.” Wolf Hall, a six-part series covering the first two novels of Mantel’s trilogy, is due for broadcast on BBC One in January.

Is it just a creature of the imagination and fantasy? Is every single gay guy in existence a total slut? Are there any guy guys who don't go out cruising parks and bathrooms or attend "sex parties"? Even my boyfriend who I thought was like me cheated on me, but then of course came crawling back begging me to take him after learning he cheated with a slut that doesn't give a shit about him. Why is it always about sex? Sex and big dicks. That's all gay men think about. Not falling in love. Not finding an actual life-partner. Just sex and big dicks.
Do you use lotion, lube, spit or dry? Do you touch other parts of your body? What time of day, how many times a day, and where? Do you use the same fantasy or make up new ones? Or do you think about prior or future sex? Can you only do it alone? When did you first start? Did someone teach you? Do feel guilty doing on Christmas? Do you think you will do till you die? Do you use Kleenex to clean up? Another boy in my neighborhood showed me at 13. I have done it almost every day since. I am 50 but still do it at least twice a day. But it takes me longer to come. I do it in the morning and evening. Sometimes to porn. I use a very old and soft tee shirt to stroke and can only do it in bed or the shower. Alone. Yes I feel guilty on Christmas, but I come anyway.

I had trouble enjoying it as a child because I used to worry about the fates of the disobedient children. Augustus was about to be killed in the mixing machine, Violet was about to explode, and Veruca was going to be incinerated: although they were all bad, I knew as a child nothing they had done had really warranted their deaths. And yet the creepy Oompa Loompas seemed to be gloating that they had likely died, singing their annoying and smug "We knew this would happen" song when each child disappeared. In the book and in the 2005 film you find they all survive, but I always thought it was an error not to be clearer in the film what had happened to them.
I am furious with my partner. I am going to confront him tonight and I don't want to become a raving nut about this situation. How should I keep my cool? Dinner with someone from work should not last until 1am in my opinion, which is what happened so he said, last night. I think I am being played.

I guess he is kind of a sore subject but I have a question. I know that when Lee Miglin was first found dead, the Chicago power brokers wanted to pretend that it had nothing to do with Cunanan but the fact could not be hidden. After Versace was killed, a wealthy doctor was found murdered, in his home, near Miami. I believe he was found hogtied and it was thought to have been murder by rentboy. His wife and kids were in Cuba. The Miami Police insisted it had nothing to do with Cunanan but I wonder. How many people did Andrew Cunanan really murder?
pet peeve: why is it that when I go to the supermarket and have a cart full of stuff, invariably some woman will come up right behind me in the checkout line with only one or two things and look at me pleadingly to let her in front of me. This pisses me off because 1) it happens every.single.time and 2) there's a fucking express lane, use it! I always have tons of shit, hundreds of dollars worth, why get in line behind me of all people? This just annoys me.

Discussion being moved from the Russian Turkish thread. From a Spa Review. [quote]Now on to the disaster known as the locker room. I have never seen so much dick in my life. I understand that it's a locker room and people have to undress themselves, but these guys were literally having conversations with each other, and the staff members, as their dicks were just hanging around. I mean, seriously? Not to mention the pool in the mens locker room that is completely full of nude dudes. Maybe it was a nudist place and I just didn't see the sign or get the memo? (Almost forgot to mention being completely put to shame when I turned around and right behind me saw an 8 year boy with a penis hanging down to his ankles). [quote]That brings me to my next complaint. Why are there children allowed here? I just recently had knee surgery and had to be extra careful (maybe this wasn't the best place to go after knee surgery), but still. There was one child picking up the rocks out of the little fountain and throwing them. Almost hit my knee. Not to mention the other kid who was running around literally purposely smacking everyone that he passed. Oh, I almost forgot about the kid who dove right on top of me by jacuzzi and almost smashed my kneecap. The best part, not one parent reprimanded their child. Wonderful.

Comedian Sarah Silverman was forced to apologize after she was caught exaggerating a story about being paid less than a man for a gig - to highlight the gender pay gap. The comic and feminist campaigner recalled an incident at the New York Comedy Club when she claimed she was paid less than her male counterpart, for a piece she recorded a wage-discrimination-activism video for Levo League. But Silverman has been forced to apologize after New York Comedy Club owner Al Martin revealed the story was false, because Silverman had been paid less purely because she appeared as a guest on the show and wasn't meant to receive anything - her male counterpart Todd Barry was booked for the slot. Silverman has since publicly apologized to Martin and revealed she fabricated the story. But she stressed that critics should not use the story as a way to undermine the gender pay gap campaign. 'To the maniacs who want to use this as a chit against women’s issues, I ask that you please don’t. Because that would be super s****y,' she said in a statement, according to National Review.

Rubio, who launched his 2016 presidential campaign last week, said that he believes the definition of marriage is a union between a man and a woman. The Florida senator also added said that same-sex marriage was not a constitutional right and should be decided by state legislatures, not the courts. "I also don't believe that your sexual preferences are a choice for the vast and enormous majority of people," he said. "In fact, the bottom line is I believe sexual preference is something that people are born with." Last week, Rubio also said that he would attend a gay wedding of a loved one, even if he disagreed with the "choice" that loved one had made.
Nancy Reagan (yes, she’s still alive) probably surprised some staunch conservatives with her early endorsement for the next president of the United States. Appearing in the History Channel’s fall series First Ladies in Their Own Words, the actress-turned-FLOTUS poo-pooed the GOP contenders and staked her claim on Hillary Clinton. “The time for a woman to serve as our President has come – really, now is the time – and I think the idea of having a former First Lady as the leader of the free world is really quite a marvelous notion,” she said in a clip from the series shared at a recent promo event. “I want Hillary to win. Even though I admire two of the current potential Republican nominees, I have no interest in seeing either of them lead this country.” Son Ron Reagan hosts the show, which explores the evolving role of the president’s wife in the culture, the country and the globe. “Hopefully, this program can show that no matter how divisive the nation was during the Presidency, the First Ladies of this nation knew their job was to soften the rhetoric by loving all Americans equally – just like a mother would,” says Ron. Of course his dad, Ronald Reagan, was not exactly known for loving all equally. Ron also revealed that Hillary’s presumed bid for the White House was inspired by her Republican successors. “Hillary had no interest in running until both Laura and Barbara Bush cornered her at their get-together in May 2013 and talked her into at least thinking about it!” he revealed. Well, at least we’d have one nice thing to come from the Bush family.

From Crazy Days and Nights: "I've heard this before, and allegedly Very Bad Things is loosely based on it to some extent. However, I always thought of it as a Hollywood legend until I recently met someone in the producer's family. When I say family, there is one widow and one child. No other family. None. A fairly minor producer died within the past month or so. It wasn't really noteworthy for the most part, but there were three or four very happy actors to see him pass. All of the actors are aging, but not George Burns old or anything. In fact, they are still A list at least by reputation. Could they carry a movie OR television show on their own anymore? Probably not. Are they regularly in movies AND television? Yes. See, back in the day there was a party like you could only have in Hollywood's glory days. Martinis, cigars and lots of beautiful women. Well it turns out that one of the beautiful women didn't go home at the end of the night. There was some incident involving either five or six actors. Two have died. Not knowing what to do, these actors got a studio gofer, now our dead producer and told him to get rid of the body and not tell anyone about it or tell anyone where the body was buried. Throughout the remainder of the producer's life, these actors took care of him, but were always afraid he would spill the secret because he was the only one who knew where the body was buried. No body, no case. Now, they are just worried that something will show up in the estate sale and some person will stumble onto a letter or some other evidence hidden in a desk drawer which will come back to haunt them. Maybe that's why one of the actors offered to buy the house with everything in it at a price that is twice what the place is worth. Still waiting to see if it will be accepted, but there won't be an estate sale yet for sure. The actors think they are being careful and that their true motives are unknown. Not at all the case, but the producer's widow is happy to take their money and be done with it. One hint is they have all been in at least one western. Although it could be on television OR in a movie."
I am enjoying it thoroughly. Anyone watching? I like the actress playing the lead character and her clones, and really enjoy the gay foster brother (I've always had a thing for hot campy guys). Maria Doyle Kennedy does "woebegone and stern" very well (The Tudors; Downton), but I have a feeling she'll get a chance to show more as the foster mom/grandmother as this goes on. Is the setting supposed to be Toronto?

I think many of you are going to deny it but it is true, straight women and gay men are very much alike because we are all attracted to men. And as such we are basically defined by our preferences. An example of this is that the majority of anorexics and bulimics are female with a small minority of males. The men who are anorexics or bulimics are predominantly gay or bisexual men. And the reason for this is because there is an aspiration to look nice among homosexual and bisexual men, a sentiment that is not present or exists to a lesser degree among heterosexual men. And the reason being for homosexual men, their object of affection are men who are by nature lookist(There's research to back this up, by the way) You see, we are all defined by our likes (men), since we are so much alike, why do you look down on us and hate us so much? I mean we are more likely to know how you feel.

I get a kick out of this series. Though it is clear the 'celebs' are picked not for who they are but for who is found in their family tree. The researchers start with a pool of celebs and the one who had a murderer or abolitionist or royal connections gets chosen. In some cases like Chris O'Donnell he knew the entire history before they chose him for the show and he was not a good enough actor to pull off surprise.
So sexy back then. RIP.
I've got a tip about them.
What do you think?
well do you?
How do you do it? Do you eat certain foods, supplements? Even if I fly like 2000 miles I get all out of sorts and jet lagged and depressed. It always takes me like 3 days to adjust.
Just ranting here. The guy I have been hiring once a month said he wants to charge me more because I have put on some weight. He said I got "fat" as a kind of joke but was serious about the $50.00 increase. WTF?! Yes, I have put on some weight but not that much!

The 16 year old has gone viral. [quote]While the video has garnered quite a bit of praise as it’s been shared across multiple social media platforms, it hasn’t come without some controversy. Billboard magazine ran the headline “‘Hunger Games’ star Amandla Stenberg criticized Taylor Swift and Madonna for ‘rampant’ appropriation of black culture,” causing the young star to take them to task for misrepresenting the tone and context of the piece on Twitter. [quote]Amandla Stenberg ✔ @amandlastenberg The way you are presenting this video is misleading and creates conflict instead of constructive convo! "'Hunger Games' Star Amandla Stenberg: 'Don't Cash Crop My Cornrows'" Amandla Stenberg stole hearts and gained international recognition for her role as "Rue" in "The Hunger Games," but now the 16-year-old actress is taking on cultural appropriation. A video created by the actress and her classmate three months ago, is now an authoritative history lesson on black culture and cultural relevancy, asking, "What would America be like if we loved black people as much as black culture?" In a Tumblr post called, "Don't Cash Crop My Corn Rows," Stenberg begins with the subject of hair, diving into examples of black celebrities who made the corn row style popular in the '90s and early 2000s — people like Alicia Keys, Beyonce and R. Kelly. Her thesis boldly states that some white celebrities have adopted aspects of black culture as "a way of being edgy and getting attention." From twerking to grills, Stenberg points out that pop culture has the tendency to assign white ownership of long ridden styles in fashion, hair and slang that originated in black culture. She specifically references Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Macklemore and Taylor Swift as offenders. She also gives cultural appropriation a clear and concise definition, acknowledging that the lines that define it can be blurry. "But here's the thing: Appropriation occurs when a style leads to racist generalizations or stereotypes where it originated, but is deemed as high fashion, cool, or funny when the privileged take it for themselves," Stenberg says on Tumblr. "Appropriation occurs when the appropriator is not aware of the deep significance of the culture that they are partaking in." Stenberg also mentions that although certain artists have gained momentum indulging in aspects of black culture, many have remained silent on the recent killings of unarmed black men like Michael Brown, Eric Garner and Tamir Rice. She references outspoken adversary to cultural appropriation, Azalea Banks who has taken fellow rapper Iggy Azalea to task numerous times on social media. Stenberg's video shows a clip of Banks in an emotional Hot 97 interview where she voices her concern that ownership of hip-hop culture is slipping from black America's grasp. Stenberg ends her video with a reflection that's been echoed throughout social media: "What would America be like if we loved black people as much as black culture?"
. . . would make a great Marilyn Monroe.%0D\ %0D\ Look closely at her face. She has that same combination of sexiness and softness.
R54 of the Phyllis McGuire thread got me wondering about all the famous women pre-Roe vs Wade who remained childless, despite multiple marriages and expressed desire for children. Were most of them really messed up from bad/multiple abortions? Some, like Jane Russell, ended up adopting children. What other Old Hollywood/Broadway/DC insider women were rumored to have visited illegal chop shops that destroyed their reproductive systems? Well-known heiresses count, too. Spill, DL!
"Rebel Flop" goes from #2 straight to #16. In Australia, it goes from #1 to #18, both in their second week on the charts. She even bombed in Japan -- JAPAN, not even making it to the top spot. It bomb in the UK by an album that was a year old, and it bombed in France. Poor Vadge. She couldn't even beat her last record: the biggest second week drop in history - 87% with her last flop album, "MDNA". Madonna hasn't had a hit single in years, and her tour sales are stalling in many venues. Her last tour made less than the previous with more dates. Next up, another film directed by the flop herself. Her directorial debut cost $29 million to make, and only made $868,439 at the box office. Perhaps it's time to bow out gracefully like some other performers that shall remain nameless. She's already driving her children to drugs by her antics.
Liza Minnelli is receiving treatment for substance abuse at a rehab facility, EW has confirmed. TMZ reported that Minnelli has been in the facility for several days, with her main issue being alcohol. Scott Gorenstein, spokesperson for the singer and Oscar-winning actress said she is “currently making excellent progress at an undisclosed facility.” Minnelli has been in rehab several times, most recently in 2004. “Liza Minnelli has valiantly battled substance abuse over the years and whenever she has needed to seek treatment she has done so.” Minnelli’s mother, Judy Garland, also struggled with addiction for the majority of her life, dying of an overdose in 1969. The star was offered half a million dollars in 2010 to appear on the reality show Celebrity Rehab, but passed on the deal.

It's called Before You Know it. It was depressing, and now I want to kill myself.
His name on the site is Stu. Anyone know any details about him? Real name? Any social media pages? He hasn't done a new video for the site in a year and I miss him.
I'd probably choose one that was living.
Madge is batch bitches- the video for her new single, Ghost Town dropped a couple of days ago. What do we think? She looks gorgeous, the video has some amazing imagery in it, and Terrance Howard's cute ass is in it. I posted the link below, but if it doesn't work just go on Youtube.
She's morphing into Mae West territory now.
Home Made Butterfingers: Need: 1 bag of candy corn 1 jar of peanut butter 1 bag of chocolate (your choice of almond bark, chips, bars, etc.) Aluminum pan or other container Knife, bowl, spoon, spatula and forks Waxed paper Buy as close to equal amounts of candy corn and peanut butter as you can. When I made this I used 16 grams of candy corn and 20 grams of peanut butter. It worked great. Place the candy corn in a microwavable bowl and melt them on high. This will usually take 2-2 1/2 minutes. Stir to make sure all the pieces have melted. Add the peanut butter. Combine well. The mixtures will thicken. Dump mixture in aluminum pan or other contain and flatten out. Be careful as mixture will be hot. Pan can then be placed in fridge to cool. Once cool, cut it into small strips and then into smaller bars. Melt chocolate in a bowl in the microwave. Dip and cover bars in chocolate. Use one or two forks for good coverage. Set bars on waxed paper to dry. By the next day the peanut butter/candy corn center will harden. These taste just like store-bought butterfingers. For Chick-O-Sticks: Create the same candy corn/peanut butter mixture but add toasted coconut. Roll into logs and allow cool. For Atkins Peanut Butter Bars: Create the same candy corn/peanut butter mixture. Cut into small pieces and dip in a powdered sugar glaze. Place pieces on waxed paper and allow glaze to dry before eating. You Are Welcome!
How big a story was it?
nice interview of Osborne with lots of clips about his career. Who is watching?
The Police chief in Indiana is defending the officers in this video and says they showed restraint. But wait, didn't they violate her rights? She's a white woman ... isn't she entitled to say and do ANYTHING??? P.S. These individuals are being thrown out of the IHOP for being drunk and disorderly ... why did they let these fools DRIVE home?
I've been getting depressed reading some of the threads that have appeared here lately. This thread is purely for fun. Post a funny pic, a sexy pic, tell a story about your pet, or something funny your BF said or did. Give us some gossip about anyone. Make it fun. I'll start. Someone is giving away a gerbil on Kijiji. I contacted them as Richard Gere and said I'd love to take their gerbil. They responded, "I don't think your ass would be a good home Richard."
I want to buy one for $100 and my mother thinks that is so decadent and stupid.
I want to watch.
Because she's fat.
[italic]Alana Lynn, a morning co-host on country music station 104.3 FM in Boise, Idaho, was excited to play Little Big Town’s latest single for her listeners. “Girl Crush,” a powerful ballad about a woman envious of her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend, seemed destined to be a hit. “I want to taste her lips, yeah cause they taste like you / I want to drown myself in a bottle of her perfume,” vocalist Karen Fairchild sings. “I want her long blond hair, I want her magic touch / Yeah cause maybe then, you’d want me just as much. . . I got a girl crush.” Sure, it’s a provocative way to describe jealousy. But when Lynn played the song on the air, she didn’t anticipate that she would get furious phone calls and e-mails accusing “Girl Crush” of “promoting the gay agenda” and threats to boycott the station. The last time she heard this much outrage from listeners? “The Dixie Chicks’ President Bush comments,” Lynn recalls, referring to when the trio’s career imploded in 2003 after making critical statements about the president. Are you surprised by the anger over Little Big Town — especially considering it’s a complete misrepresentation of their lyrics? Lynn doesn’t play the song in the morning anymore after parents complained they didn’t want their kids hearing it. But it’s not just in Idaho: In recent weeks, multiple radio stations from coast to coast have been inundated with similar complaints about “Girl Crush,” forcing several to take it out of a regular rotation. (Sample comments heard by a Texas program director: “You are just promoting the gay agenda on your station and I am changing the channel and never listening to you ever again!!”) As a result, the song is mired in a difficult climb on the radio charts, and it has ignited a controversy that is symbolic of the fraught state of country radio. There’s a deep chasm these days between what’s popular on country radio — still the genre’s most powerful platform — and what fans are actually buying: “Girl Crush” is No. 4 on iTunes, but lags at No. 33 in radio rankings. And while country music is seen as more progressive now — with explicit lyrics about sex and casual marijuana use — significant portions of the traditional audience will not tolerate a song that they even wrongly assume is about a same-sex relationship. Syndicated radio personality Bobby Bones, who hosts the nation’s most popular country morning show, fumed about this topic to his millions of listeners last week while Little Big Town was in the studio. “Is it frustrating to you that here is your song — that is one of the Top 10 sellers for weeks and weeks and weeks — and people on the radio are still afraid to play it because they think it’s a ‘lesbian song?’” he asked. “It would drive me insane!” The group agreed. “Just the fact that we’re still discussing that, number one, there’s so many problems with that whole issue,” Fairchild said. “It shouldn’t even matter if it’s a lesbian song, is the first thing,” Bones added. Though, of course, that has been proven to matter. Look no further than Kacey Musgraves and “Follow Your Arrow,” the song referencing same-sex kissing that racked up awards and sales but struggled to find a radio audience. Even in 2015, the subject is still a taboo in the genre. An anonymous Texas program director, who wrote a long post about the song for the music blog For the Country Record, is annoyed that listeners refuse to acknowledge the real meaning behind the lyrics. “Country music fans, please try to have an open mind about songs you are hearing on the radio today and if you don’t like them, that’s fine,” the director wrote. “But don’t not like them for the wrong close-minded reasons.”[/italic]
Clinton announces her bid for POTUS 2016. You go, girl!
Officially the worst show on TV. Courtesy of the Destination America channel you are treated to real toothless hillbillies running around the woods hunting Bigfoot. Each episode they find him, they see him, but dang, the camera never manages to capture it. You would think they would fire those incompetent camera men. This week's episode they discovered, Bigfoot can create fire, cooks his meals and walks the woods with a torch!
Is it worth it to get the California king? I assume it's harder and more expensive to get bedding. My partner wants to buy a new bed, rendering all of my fabulous queen-sized sheet sets useless - but I digress. So: does size matter? Thanks, DL.

A friend of mine has the same name as a notorious criminal....when you google his name the first results you get are references to the criminal.
Who the fuck gave this woman her own damn show? I'm on the East Coast but grew up in the Deep South. So little of what she does is "southern cooking". Has anyone else seen this mess? She stands there and attempts to be clever, opening up can after can after can. Using store bought packs of shredded cheese on everything. She's not cooking a bit, not at all. She's basically putting together common white trash recipes that most of our aunts and grandmothers post on FaceBook. Shit like "better than sex cake" and such. Lots of cans of olives and tubs of cream cheese are used. She doesn't know how to chop and leaves on her gigantic mega-carot diamond ring. She was actually frying something up in olive oil this weekend. I'm not cook but even I know you can't/shouldn't use olive oil to fry or even brown. It burns too fast and become carcinogenic after it tops a certain temperature. Did she get this show solely based on her money and name? She couldn't have gotten it based on her cooking. Poseur.
The bombing was 20 years ago today. Timothy James McVeigh, an anti-government nut job, set a bomb off in front of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. 160 were killed, including a slew of kids in daycare. McVeigh was aided by Terry Lynn Nichols. McVeigh did not contest the death penalty and he got it. Nichols has been in the Colorodo super-max prison for almost 20 years, and he's never getting out.
I just started going there. I assumed it would all be straight, based on where it was...but it's odd... 1. Are the guys that are all fake tanned w/ tank tops and huge arms, perfect haircuts (but totally straight voices and actions) all gay? or straight? 2. Am I going to get used to the cuntiness of the people there (e.g., using 4 machines at once, strutting around, not moving out of the way of others)? How funny is it that I went on grindr for 2 minutes, and one of the queens who was 15 feet away blocked me instantly. Was he terrified that my torso would say hi to his torso? Wha?? Because I'm hairy?? Rude. Anyway, I didn't want to talk to him & his giant abdominal mole anyway. TIA.
We will remember what you did.
The host pings to high heaven despite supposedly being married to his designer, a female. My bf watched it with me last night and asked me who that snippy bottom bitch was supposed to be. Any one else think he's either closeted or just outright lying and he's not really married at all?
I guess the 1980s will be a great decade for the gays!
For what reasons do you think these celebs would be selected? Inspired by the ass fucking in prison thread.
Bitch please, how stupid do you think we are.
& it's well worth watching.
(as Kellan would spell it) See his pecs and nipples ripple.
I find this guy really cute/attractive - and charismatic...but when we are together (and especially with his friends), he drinks the entire time...one after the next. He often asks "why im still on my first drink" or whatever and goes on about how I'm a lightweight. Yeah...well, I'm not a big drinker or fan of being a messy drunk at 35 years old (he's a few years older). I thought maybe it was a phase or just a thing that was happening when we hung out, but his facebook pics dating back to 2008 are basically ALL pics of drinking at every bar in the city. I've never actually run into this issue in the past somehow - and it's annoying bc I like his personality and he's cute, but so much of his social life revolving around getting drunk & loud bars is making me question it. 90% of the guys I meet are far worse in other ways, though...so I don't run any time there's one little mismatch.
Can J.J. Abrams bring us back to the wonder, the humor and the excitement of the originals? Let's take a look, shall we?......
And the last episode had a drunk (severe drunk, not too old) on it. I think the premise is they go to the doctor for tests and show what their drug of choice is doing to their body. The guy, Ryan, went in for testing and had pancreatitis and a swollen liver plus an old hip injury which wouldn't heal b/c he drank so much. So he goes into rehab and they (spoiler alert) announce "Ryan died 17 days into rehab" no explanation as to why. Did anyone see this? Is there a discussion somewhere else saying what happened? Suicide? Sneak out and binge to death? Liver failure? The facility fuck up on the withdrawal treatment? What?
The new scripted drama premieres tonight. From the creator of "The Tudors" and starring former CK underwear model Travis Fimmel and Gabriel Byrne. I'm going to give it a shot...early reviews are encouraging, and I'm guessing many of the male characters will be hot, in an uncivilized, possibly murderous yet emotionally conflicted way. Kind of like some of the guys I've known from real life. I want to see wanton pillaging and bedroom intrigue.
The building I live in was built in the 80s with the standard coil/blower system (not radiators or floor heat). Chicago buildings are notorious for having a "one pipe system" which means you either have heat or air conditioning. The Chicago heat ordinance forces landlords to keep the heat above 65 for all months except June-August. So, they won't turn on the AC until June 1 for fear it'll drop under 65 (which my building never has, even during the polar vortex, with my heat off - it's very insulated). The Chicago Heat Ordinance doesn't have a maximum heat level. My apartment is currently 75.2 degrees, and the hallways are 81 degrees (they have a separate system). It is 51 outside. There's no breeze and the windows tip forward, so you can't get much air. I've asked my mgmt about this numerous times, and they said "I am the only one with a problem". When it was 72 outside yesterday (and sunny) it was 83 in here (heat off, obviously)...but supposedly I'm the only one with a problem. Every time I ask a resident in the elevator, they agree with me...but why doesn't anything change? Do I need to start some campaign against the mgmt company or something? If I have to put a letter under 500 doors, I will. I can't do anything legally because there is a heat ordinance, and they claim they can't "risk" it going too low - but it's too fucking hot! It wasn't an issue last year because of the polar vortex. I bought a $400 in-room a/c unit, but it is loud as hell & doesn't even get things that cold. The building's engineer lives here & sets the heat...which I think is 90% of the problem. What is so complicated for them to understand: Turn the heat coils down & turn the hallway system to AC...so that if my heat blower thing is OFF - it is 68-70...NOT 75. I have had this argument with them for months...and it's like I'm speaking Chinese. I live in the middle of the floors, so it's not the "heat rises" issue. Sorry I am super bitchy & rambling at the moment. I woke up sweating in 76 degree heat (despite windows open and 51 outside)...and all this lovely sleep deprivation comes at $2000 a month. So, what would you do here? My bf is a lawyer and says I can't do anything. I've argued w/ the head engineer endlessly, but he's an ass hole & won't change a thing. My only option is to put notes under every door to get the residents to force the building to fix this, but then I'll get on a shitlist with the landlord & who knows if they will even renew my lease (this building is *perfect* except for this).
We're maligned! Told that we are finished after 35! The younger gays love to make fun of us... and unfortunately, some of them will not even reach our ages. This thread features hot men 40, and older. It is intended to compliment those who are still looking good, and loving life! It is intended to inspire others who may have given up, and let them know that it isn't over, but it's up to them! It is intended for those, who are younger, to pause, and think; "Wait a minute...just maybe I would." Post your pics! Better yet, post your pics with ages, if you know them! Feel free to write your thoughts about older men, and what you think of them! LET'S DISCUSS AND SEE HOT SILVER DADDIES!!! ...and of course, this will be NSFW! I'll start with a few: Actor; David Pevsner--55 years old
Well, I don't know what we did to cause Chapter Two of this thread to not open. Mr. Webmaster??? Anyway... I enjoyed that thread and I do not want to derail it at all. So, until Two reopens, if at all, let's proceed to three! It would happen anyway. Mr. Originator of that thread would you please the requirements of this thread. Thank you. Reminder: Some images are NSFW and please note--Like this first one: NSFW!
Not sure how much he drank but he was known for it: Gore Vidal
April 16, 2015 Former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) said Thursday that he would not attend the same-sex wedding of a loved one or close family friend. "No, I would not," Santorum, who is mulling a 2016 White House bid, said when asked during an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt. Santorum, a staunch Catholic who was the runner-up for the GOP nomination in 2012, suggested that attending such a wedding would go against his religious beliefs. "I would love them and support them, but I would not participate in that ceremony," he said. The question was posed to Santorum after Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who is also opposed to same-sex marriage, said he would attend a gay wedding. “If it’s somebody in my life that I care for, of course I would,” Rubio, who is running for the White House, told Fusion. “Ultimately, if someone that you care for and is part of your family has decided to move in one direction or another or feels that way because of who they love, you respect that because you love them,” Rubio said. In his interview Thursday, Santorum suggested that liberals "don't focus their energy on anything but the attempt to gather more power." Hewitt asked whether the 2016 nominee would hold accountable groups like the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which have killed gay people and other minorities. "Defending human rights everywhere is something that a president should be involved in, and if I were to run for president and get elected, that's what I would do," Santorum said.

Countdown to "creative differences" press release
And please tell us WHY you didn't race in here and tell us about it. Huh? Why?
4/19/15 Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday there’s a better than 90 percent chance he’ll run for president, saying he’ll decide in May. “If I can raise the money, I’ll do it,” the South Carolina Republican said on “Fox News Sunday.” Graham said he’ll win South Carolina if he’s on the ballot, pointing out he won his reelection primary there last year by more than 40 points, despite challenges from multiple candidates. A recent poll of the GOP presidential primary field in South Caroilna, however, showed him trailing Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. “If I didn’t think I could win South Carolina, I wouldn’t be talking to you,” Graham said. The South Carolina senator offered the strong signal that he’ll run for president after being told that former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina recently indicated she was 90 percent certain to enter the race. Asked by Fox host Chris Wallace to offer a percentage likelihood that he’d run, Graham said, “91.” The third-term senator has staked his prospective bid for the GOP presidential nomination on his foreign policy chops, running as a hawk on Iran and using the Fox News interview to land broadsides on some of his potential Republican opponents and the Obama administration. Still, he’s viewed skeptically by a Republican base wary of his support for immigration reform that includes a pathway to citizenship and of a debt reduction plan that would raise new revenue in addition to cutting entitlement and other spending. In particular, Graham offered underhanded praise for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), predicting the first-term senator “will be president someday” but that 2016 might not be his time. Graham saved his most pointed barbs for Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who’s championed a less muscular approach to foreign policy. Graham said Paul wants to treat captured terrorists as criminals rather than wartime combatants. “He wants to fight a crime,” Graham said. “I’m fighting a war.”
Have at it, Bitches.
I think there's a scene in The Grapes of Wrath where Ma Joad breastfeeds a starving man. Does nasty shit like this happen in real life?
They're like half the size of his head
Example: Did Calvin Harris out himself, now that he is dating Taylor Swift ?
