Prince Harry Vegas Pictures another royal Facebook moment
Written by

harry-dianaIt’s a joke that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. What happens, whether in Vegas or Smelterville, Iowa, replays within 30 seconds on Facebook–finger-covered dingle and all.

And while loyal British subjects, from truck drivers to divas, applaud their red-headed Prince Harry for his naked Vegas cavorting with squealing, naked women last week, one must ask--why is this happening? If dynasty means anything, it means not only regular royal weddings to spur the sales of "Hello" and Spanish magazines, but also begetting legitimate heirs, and begetting them quickly. These heirs then have to survive to adulthood (easier today than a hundred years ago), and beget heirs, and so on.

Written by

spag-vitt2-newIf the New Orleans Saints play like they did the last time they matched up against the Houston Texans in pre-season, it will be a long night for the home team in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.

If they take on the Texans as they did during last year’s regular season, Brees and gang will score often and prevail against a powerful Houston offense.

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting.

The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
