Stephen Colbert Goes Full Homophobe

I certainly will never be accused of being a Trump supporter (well, unless by a total idiot) and I'm not doing so now...

THAT said, if the homophobic ASSHOLE is allegedly on "our side" it ESPECIALLY behooves us all to point out and stand up against homophobic insults slurs and abuses.

SOOOOO...  last night Stephen Colbert felt he would exercise his "straight…

“Thirteen Hours” A Movie All Americans Should See

Few movies about US history, particularly the war torn pages of the past, stand up to the test of accurate depiction especially when presented by Hollywood. “Thirteen Hours” has been acclaimed not only for its accuracy but for the well portrayed tension and the self-induced tragedy…

A couple of people have commented that they can't figure out the new front page.

Whoda Thunk?

It's the new meme.

Have you noticed it in your own home town?

"News" gets presented as a startling chain of events nobody could have predicted. The talking bobble heads go back and forth about how some entirely predictable event wasn't foreseen. There it was, upon the hapless victims in a split second. How could anyone have known?

Details after the commercial break. Your news team will be there for you.

(You Don't Have To) Hold On (updated)

Many of you here at Oursalon are familiar with my posts about my family.

You may remember that my father has suffered some serious health setbacks over the last two years, and at his age, each of them could have been the last one.

My Short, Happy Time as a Dance Team Negotiator

No professional sports franchise would be complete without a dance team comprised of a bevy of bouncing, buxom beauties.  Usually, the dance team goes by a cloyingly cute name inspired by the franchise’s mascot; the “Embraceable Ewes,” for example, in the case of the Los Angeles Rams.  I’m not saying this is a good thing, it’s just the way the world works.…

Federal Reserve Act of 1913 Part II

History is fraught with incidents and conspiracies that have been intentionally denied or out and out disputed by the very sources of those schemes. False flag operations, assassinations, coups, and propaganda have been used for centuries to bring about control of the masses or in some…

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 Part I

Perhaps one of the biggest fraudulent schemes ever perpetrated upon the American people that would create more economic duress than any other blunder the government could have concocted was the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. A legislation of questionable ratification…

President Trump on the Civil War

Business Groups Balk at "Take Your Cat to Work Day"

CHICAGO. First, notes human resources manager Dale Cloymore, there was “Bring Your Daughter to Work Day,” a well-intentioned effort to show young girls there were future opportunities for them outside the home. “Then the fathers of boys got involved,” he recalls, “saying they didn’t want their sons to grow up to be kept men.”

“Great–I’ll put you down for 100 cases of left-handed skyhooks!”


Childless dog-owners were next, saying their inability…
