In Finding Nemo, a whale helps a clownfish find his son; at SeaWorld, killer whales helped me dismantle PETA’s lies.
Last week, I had the opportunity to tour SeaWorld Orlando behind-the-scenes. I observed how the theme park’s animals are trained and treated. I also learned that SeaWorld has rescued over 25,000 animals. Continue reading
Common sense is making a comeback among Millennials, who would rather cruise the open road in a gas-propelled hot rod than text, hug a tree, or drive a Tesla.
Democrats and Republicans alike make the mistake of believing that Millennial drivers eschew common sense. For example, Gov. Mark Dayton (D-MN) thinks he will increase his popularity by pushing a massive gas tax that would add at least 16 cents to the price of every gallon. Meanwhile, in his own pathetic attempt to become one of the cool kids, Rep. Pat Garofalo (R-MN) was recently photographed standing beside his shiny new Tesla electric sports car. Continue reading
Orthodox Jewish women and conservative Muslim women both follow modesty rules, but Orthodox Jewish women are devout without abandoning their individuality and civil liberties.
26-year-old Hayat Boumedienneis the suspected accomplice in last week’s 3-day terror attack in Paris, France. Her common law husband, Amedy Coulibaly, murdered four Jews and a policewoman in a kosher Paris market. Continue reading
Lena Dunham and the federal government ain’t volunteering to advocate for rape victims; they would like compensation—in millions, please.
Faceless and nameless men and women volunteer every day, all across the country, to counsel, shelter and heal sexual assault victims. Hollywood darling Lena Dunham is advocating for women too. But Dunham is neither offering women practical tools to deter rape nor taking a six-month sabbatical to volunteer at a woman’s shelter. Continue reading
Halloween is four days before the midterms. Get out the vote with a costume that expresses your inner politico. Here are five fun political costume ideas that will spark a debate at your Halloween party—and remind your friends to vote for freedom.
1.) Naughty Czar
The CDC’s lack of transparency and competency in managing Ebola makes the classic “naughty nurse” costume off-limits. It seems thoughtless to dramatize the health care professions while an American nurse and doctor exert every effort to heal from Ebola. It is far more tactful—and provocative—to be a naughty czar. Continue reading
Joan Rivers crushed 9/11 terrorists by laughing. So should you.
If the doyenne of dark comedy were still alive, the Republican Party would win the 2016 presidential election by nominating Joan Rivers. First, because the GOP would be running an octogenarian grandmother against a slightly younger grandmother (Hillary Clinton) and Democrats could not accuse Republicans of attacking Clinton’s age, sex or grandmotherhood. Second, because Rivers had a self-depreciating sense of humor whereas Hillary has a mean streak (think Clinton’s dismissal of cookie-baking housewives or her “What difference does is make?!” screech). Third, Rivers would have been more adept at handling the fusillade of terrorism threatening America.
Sadly, Rivers passed away last week at the feisty and energetic age of 81. However, as we approach the anniversary of the 9/11/01 and 9/11/12 (Benghazi) attacks, let’s take a cue from Rivers’ healthy but unconventional approach to tragedy. Continue reading
Jesse “The Body”? Who’s that? I’m a Minnesota girl and I only know Jesse “The Baby.”
In September of 2012, I listened to my home state’s former governor speak at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. I felt embarrassed for my state. Ventura showed up in jeans, a tie-dyed T-shirt and long, straggly gray hair that looked like it hadn’t been combed or washed in days. No, he wasn’t going for “California casual” with jeans in a blazer. On top of his multi-colored t-shirt he donned, not a classy sport coat, but a 90’s-style color-block windbreaker. He was trying and failing to look young, cool and hipster as he spoke to college students. Continue reading
“Here’s your drink, darling,” the bartender said with a smile. He seemed upbeat as he made drinks and greeted customers. “Do you like your job?” I asked him. “I hate it,” he confessed. “Honestly, I hate my job.”
I keep running into young people who put on a show of being happy with their lives but, when probed a bit, quickly concede that their smiles mask trials. A few days ago, I met a young woman who told me she works as a hairdresser at two different salons while seeking work in her desired field. The next day, I met a young man who volunteers and bartends while searching for full-time work that utilizes his college degree. Continue reading
Former Marine and anonymous street artist “Sabo” uses paint and provocative posters to compel Americans to think outside the box of political correctness.
Sabo is not a “kid-friendly” artist. His art incorporates the middle finger, a topless Wendy Davis “Barbie” doll, and Nancy Pelosi twerking in latex lingerie. But Sabo uses incendiary language and images solely to get Americans to think about hard issues rather than sweeping them away with political correctness. Continue reading
Would you like to see a documentary about women and babies, or my selfies with squirrels?
We’ve all heard the critical news that Instagram may ban pop star Rihanna if she posts topless photos. We heard about a teen who attempted to take a selfie with a squirrel. We heard that James Franco kissed Lindsay Lohan and “it was lame.”
Self-described journalists who give us the juicy scoop on Rih Rih, Lo Lo and Franco, have buried the story of America’s biggest serial killer, Dr. Kermit Gosnell, and the testimonials of women who have had abortions. It’s time for a breath of fresh air. Continue reading
