These Photos Have Incredible Stories to Tell.

This is one of the most amazing collection of photograhps I’ve ever seen. Not because they are especially beautiful (although some are), but because of the meaning each of them has, and how each of them makes us think or feel something. These are worth more than a thousand words, and each tell a story about the world we live in.

Iran Negotiations Continue Going Downhill

Beyond the Cusp

United States Secretary of State John Kerry spoke with reporters about the negotiations with Iran which presumably are aiming to prevent the Iranians from becoming a nuclear power by producing nuclear weaponry. Sometimes I wonder which causes a larger headache, thinking of a world containing a nuclear armed terror state such as Iran or having to discern what in the world Secretary Kerry means as he often speaks in such vagaries likely in order to always claim that any quote is not what he meant by his words. Before getting to Iran I thought it might be almost as interesting to examine the exact words Secretary was quoted delivering. Secretary Kerry stated, “I think it is fair to say, I think it is public knowledge today, that we are operating with a time period for a so-called breakout of about two months.” He further stated, “So six months to twelve…

Starting Holy Week With Murders

PA Pundits - International

caruba_alan20080111 By Alan Caruba ~

Holocaust VictimsThere’s something very sad about the murders in Kansas City that began the holy week for Jews—Passover—and the forthcoming Easter for Christians. The two events are closely linked biblically and historically. The murders are a rebuke to both faiths.

There is irony and tragedy in the murder of William Lewis Corporon and his grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood. Both were Christian. As of this writing, the third victim, a woman, is identified as a Jew. The first two were visiting a Jewish community center to participate in a music contest. The other victim was killed at a Jewish retirement community.

The alleged perpetrator is Frazier Glenn Cross who was identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as having been involved in the white supremacist movement for most of his life. Fox News reported that he “founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and was its…

The Beautifully Crafted Cars You`d Drive 100 Years

If you ever felt like your car is too old, and you wish you had a newer one, check out what an old car REALLY is. These cars start from the very first official automobile in the 19th century, and proceeds into the early morning of the 20th. Looking at these, it’s hard not to appreciate the worksmanship and class that went into these first vehicles, treasured as they were as the height of technology at the time.

An Open Letter to My Boobs

Susie Lindau's Wild Ride

Dear Bionic Boobs,

I know you’ve been adjusting to your new digs since the reconstruction surgery seven months ago. I’ve protected you from wild elbows, supported you with a bra, and exercised you by smooshing you girls together. (Doctor’s orders.) You seem happy enough and pretty perky.

I do have some concerns.

One night I looked down and you had wandered off to the sides of my chest. You left four inches between you two. I almost had a heart attack. I thought I’d torn something while vacuuming.  As you know, I’ve started wearing a sport’s bra to bed to corral you at night, so I don’t wake up and freak out.  I wish you girls would stick together.

Although you’re shaped like hamburger buns and aren’t huge by any means, you weigh more than my old boobs. In fact, you’re a little on the hefty side. The doctor suggested some…

Choice has never been more abundant in the evils space

The Slog

Here’s a cracker to start off with: the EU is thinking of investigating misuse of funds by Nigel Farage and UKip. Nige says he would welcome such a process (perhaps he would, too) but the laughable thing for me is the idea of an organisation – so crooked and mired in corruption, its accounts have never been signed off by any auditor anywhere – investigating the financial probity of another person or organisation. The equivalent, I suppose, of Tim Yeo leading an investigation into the affairs of the South Suffolk Conservative Association.

Very much the same applies when one is faced with Con Coughlin headlining his Telegraph column today, ‘How can we negotiate with a pathological liar like Vladimir Putin?’ I’m afraid when it comes to the outpourings of Con, the clue’s in the name.

So let’s go for three in a row and a bonus point: Chris Grayling says…
