RIP Fred Thompson
Fred Thompson, an actor who became a US senator for Tennessee and ran for the presidency in 2008, has died. He was 73.Fred was also as you know an actor, Variety also has an obit here.
A statement from the Thompson family said: “It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of grief that we share the passing of our brother, husband, father, and grandfather who died peacefully in Nashville surrounded by his family.”
The statement, which the Tennessean newspaper reported said Thompson died from a recurrence of lymphoma, added: “Fred believed that the greatness of our nation was defined by the hard work, faith, and honesty of its people.
After Thompson’s acting role in “Marie,” director Roger Donaldson then cast him in “No Way Out” (1987) opposite Kevin Costner and Gene Hackman, and Thompson quickly got the reputation as an actor who could portray a high-powered politican.Yes, I see those elephants over there, not gonna do it, wouldn't be prudent.
He would go on to appear in films “Die Hard 2,” “The Hunt for Red October” and “Days of Thunder” in the ’90s before joining “Law & Order.”
Thompson joined the NBC procedural in 2002, during the final months of his Senate run. He left in 2007, most likely to prepare for his presidential bid that would come that year.
His other film credits include “Cape Fear,” “In the Line of Fire,” “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee,” “Thunderheart” and “Born Yesterday.” He also appeared on episodes of “Sex and the City,” “The Good Wife,” “Life on Mars,” “Wiseguy,” “Roseanne” and “Matlock.”
Anyway the most endearing feature of Fred was his voice, that easy going southern good ol' boy voice.

Free Eddie! (update: He's Free!)
He's being held on half a million dollars bail, over a repossession if I remember correctly.
Anyway..... we're big fans...... after all he saved the world several times......
We hereby demand Eddie, I mean The Quaids' unconditional release back into their natural environment!
Update: Apparently the State of California didn't get their act together and Vermont released the Quaids.
Superior Court Judge Alison Arms ruled there was no probable cause to hold the couple in Vermont.
The 65-year-old star of "Kingpin" and other popular movies -- sporting a flowing white beard and long hair -- smiled as he left the courtroom with his wife at his side.
The pair walked out of the courthouse wearing medical scrub-like jail uniforms.
"What a great judge," Evi Quaid told reporters. "Totally fair. This is Vermont. This is why we crossed the border into Vermont. ... I knew that the people of Vermont, the judge ... understand us."

While it's all hilarity now, authorities had to take the incident quite seriously when they first received a call that a man in his 20s had placed a small hard-suit case wrapped in a black blanket beneath a bridge.
Police shut down a road that runs through a heavy residential area alongside the Phillippi Creek and called in the Hazardous Devices Unit.
The bomb squad X-rayed the suitcase and determined it was not an incendiary device. Upon opening it, they found a customized foam mold protecting a colorful glass waterpipe.

WTW No Wait! Man Catches Wife in Bed With Her Father Gets Stabbed
Police in Oakland County say a man was stabbed by his father-in-law after finding the 47-year-old nude in bed with his wife — the man’s own daughter — and the older man is now behind bars.
The incident unfolded just after 3:30 a.m. Saturday at a home in the 100 block of W. Rundell Avenue in Pontiac, between Baldwin Avenue and Saginaw Street.
A 25-year-old man told police that he had arrived home and discovered his wife and her father completely nude, laying together in bed. The man woke up his father-in-law and got into an altercation that continued outside of the home.
That’s when the older man, since identified by police as Henry Allen Michael of Detroit, allegedly stabbed the younger man in the back with a knife.
After the stabbing, Michael got into his son-in-law’s vehicle and fled the scene.
Deputies were dispatched to McLaren Hospital after the man arrived with a non-life threatening stab wound that possibly perforated his right lung.

Haters Gonna Hate
Big Bang Theory Actress catches hell for, you know, just visiting IsraelEW
"I think in general it's never going to be trendy to be observant or religious in Hollywood circles," Bialik told Fox 411 in an interview published Friday.Looking a bit deeper Jawa Report finds facts that make the hatred even more vile.
Bialik, 39, is of the Jewish faith and opened up about some serious backlash she received after a recent trip to Israel.
"I've gotten a lot of negative attention for visiting Israel," she said, recalling a visit to a friend in the Israel Defense Forces. "That's what amazing. … Simply by going to Israel this summer and saying nothing more than, 'I've gone to Israel,' I got the same amount of hatred and threats and anti-Semitism for actually making a statement trying to support people [who] whether I like it or not are serving in an army."
"That reveals the truth," she continued. "It really doesn't matter what I support or believe; the fact that I'm Jewish and go there is enough – that should be alarming to most people."
So, you know, the notion that I'm a real-life nerd that loves Star Wars and superheroes....Autolink.

ISIS Flag Spotted In Gay Pride Parade
CNN reported the ISIS flag was being flown at a gay pride parade:
While roaming the annual Gay Pride Parade in London, CNN International reporter Lucy Pawle stumbled upon an "unnerving" sight: An unidentified man flying what initially appeared to be the flag of the jihadist Islamic State (ISIS).
Pawle snapped several photos of the strange sighting, and described to her CNN in-studio colleagues how parade-goers didn't seem to notice the flag, nor were there many questions being asked.
At one point, Pawle suggested it could have been a subtle piece of British humor (as they are wont to do) taunting ISIS since the militant group is notorious for executing homosexuals in rather brutal fashion. Corroborating her theory, Pawle said, is the fact that the flag's wording doesn’t appear to be Arabic, but rather "gobbledygook."
Wait... I thought all that "gobbledygook" on an ISIS flag was dildos and buttplugs!?
Looks like didlos and buttplugs to me. If fact, some analysis of the ISIS flag reveals:
So, CNN wasn't too far off. But I expect them to apologized to ISIS any day now.

Hillary The Sixth Beatle?
Yoko Ono when asked about her thoughts about Hillary’s run for the presidency completely took reporters by surprise.Eeeewwww! Bad Gay!
“We met many times during the New York Vietnam War protests in the 1970s, and became very intimate. We shared many of the same values about sexual equality, fighting against the authoritarian, patriarchal, male-dominated society we were raised in” she explained.
“We had a brief romantic fling when I lived with John in Manhattan and Hillary was studying at Yale, but eventually we lost touch. I am amazed how things are going well for her and wish her the best for her campaign” she told reporters during the press conference.

School Lunch Optical Illusion
Believe it or not, both these images are of the same meal. But through manipulated lighting and a vast right-wing conspiracy, the image on the left makes the meal appear much less appealing than the actual Michelle Obama approved meal on the right.
The illusion illustrates how lighting and political spin can fool your mind into seeing things differently than they really are.

Joe Biden Expresses Disappointment About Hillary Running For President
Earlier this week, Biden spoke candidly with a close adviser about his desire to run for President.

SHOCKER: Barry Manilow Is Gay!!11!!!
Well, I'm not shocked. And I doubt anyone outside the Daily Mail news room is shocked either.
The news that Barry Manilow, the world's richest and most successful popular singer, has married his male manager, Garry Kief, at a secret wedding, may have stunned the legions of women who worship the 71-year-old icon's every move, but it is not likely to stop the traffic on Hollywood Boulevard.
For while many fans reacted on social media with broken-hearted shock - with one post reporting: 'my Mum can't stop crying about Barry' - there were many who had long suspected that, despite the star's decades of protestations to the contrary, the perma-tanned, disco-dancing smoothie was gay.

Mom Tries To Break Up Fight By Shooting Those Involved
I guess it seemed like a good idea at the time...
A gun-wielding mother has been arrested after allegedly firing into a crowd of people outside an apartment complex in a bid to break up a fight - only for the bullet to hit and kill her teenage son.
Latoya Tilson, 33, took out a .25-caliber handgun and fired several times into the feuding crowd in College Park, Georgia, on Saturday night after she was hit in the face by someone, police said.
But while one bullet struck a 17-year-old boy in the buttocks, another hit Tilson's 15-year-old son, Pierre, in the head.
I'm sure she was just trying to graze people like they do in the movies.

RIP Mr. Spock
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP— Leonard Nimoy (@TheRealNimoy) February 23, 2015
I Am Not Spock proclaimed the title of Leonard Nimoy's 1975 autobiography, in which the veteran actor tried to distinguish himself from his most iconic role, as Star Trek's emotionless half-human, half-Vulcan science officer. Twenty years later, he published a follow-up entitled, I Am Spock, in which the actor-director warmly embraced his pointy-eared alter ego. Like it or not, Nimoy — who passed away on Feb. 27 at the age of 83 from end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease — was Spock to generations of sci-fi fans, so much so that when J.J. Abrams rebooted the franchise in the 2009 blockbuster, Nimoy was the one original cast member he made sure to bring back.

On Thursday, while aboard the papal plane, Pope Francis said there are limits to freedom of expression, especially when it insults or ridicules someone’s faith.Is it just me or is there some slight difference between a giving a person fat lip and the murder of 12 people plus some random Jews?
If my good friend Dr. Gasparri says a curse word against my mother, he can expect a punch, Francis said.

Teacher 23 Totally Rapes Student 18
Jessica Bonnet Acker a 23 year old high school teacher at Bryant High in Cottondale, Alabama has been accused of having sex with an eighteen year old student, just seven months after marrying her husband.I mean for the husband, who married the whore.
The teachers’ arrest would come after authorities came to be tipped off that Acker was in the throes of a relationship with one of her pupils. Both Acker and the student in question would be interviewed before a warrant for Acker’s arrest was issued. Acker would in turn surrender to authorities the next day.
But 18 and 23 rape? Inappropriate, and probably a policy violation. But is that rape the first or the 70th time or both?
I mean I can hear the victim's testimony now...
So you had sex with Mrs Acker? And then again and again and again?Kids probably don't say righteous babe anymore do they?
Yeah it was awesome dude! She's a totally righteous babe!
