Virginia Is For Lovers???


You can file this under “he just needs to blow off some steam” and he “needs to get laid.” Apparently Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli who is Virginia’s GOP gubernatorial candidate has something against oral sex, he wants to outlaw oral sex between consenting adults, and is having a hard time trying to get people to bite and hop on aboard (get it, I kid, I kid). What, did someone take a bite out of him in his past or something?

This isn’t Cuccinelli’s first time trying to kill the mood either; he previously tried to have the state reinstate a law against sodomy.

Virginia Attorney General Kenneth Cuccinelli has filed a petition with the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in Richmond asking the full 15-judge court to reconsider a decision by a three-judge panel last month that overturned the state’s sodomy law. The three-judge panel ruled 2-1 on March…

Pornography Has Been Weaponized

Thinking Out Loud

Dr. Russell D. Moore:

…Pornography is not now simply available. With the advent of Internet technology, with its near universal reach and its promise of secrecy, pornography has been weaponized. In some sectors, especially of our young male populations, it is nearly universal. This universality is not, contrary to the propaganda of the pornographers themselves, a sign of its innocence but of its power…

“Standing Our Ground”: Stand Your Ground Laws Are Not Making Us Safer, They’re Making Us More Barbaric

This is not the time for evanescent anger, which is America’s wont.

This is not the time for a few marches that soon dissipate as we drift back into the fog of faineance — watching fake reality television as our actual realities become ever more grim, gawking at the sexting life of Carlos Danger as our own lives become more dangerous, fawning over royal British babies as our own children are gunned down.

This is yet another moment when America should take stock of where the power structures are leading us, how they play on our fears — fan our fears — to feed their fortunes.

On no subject is this more clear than on the subject of guns.

While it is proper and necessary to analyze the case in which George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin for what it says about profiling and police practices, it is possibly…

How Coffee Could Save Your Life


To hear most recent research tell it, coffee is a miracle drink. The magic beans will ward off skin cancer and Alzheimer’s, reduce heart failure and diabetes risks, heighten focus, and maybe even protect liver health. Oh, and decrease suicide risk, according to the newest study that validates our coffee addictions.

According to a study performed by the Harvard School of Public Health and published this month in The World Journal of Biological Psychiatry, people who drink two to four cups of java each day are less likely to commit suicide than those who don’t drink coffee, drink decaf, or drink fewer than two cups each day. The study followed over 200,000 people for at least 16 years. And it’s not just a weak link: the researchers found that the suicide risk was cut by around 50 percent for caffeine fiends.

“Facing A Groundswell”: The Plotting And Scheming Of An Assorted Cast Of Cringe Worthy Conservative Clowns

I’ve noticed this. Why can’t Democrats use the media to our advantage?

If you’ve ever found it curious that far-right media activists all seem to say the same thing at the same time about the same issues, it’s not your imagination. David Corn offers an explanation.

Believing they are losing the messaging war with progressives, a group of prominent conservatives in Washington — including the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and journalists from Breitbart News and the Washington Examiner — has been meeting privately since early this year to concoct talking points, coordinate messaging, and hatch plans for “a 30 front war seeking to fundamentally transform the nation,” according to documents obtained by Mother Jones.

Dubbed Groundswell, this coalition convenes weekly in the offices of Judicial Watch, the conservative legal watchdog group. During these hush-hush sessions and through a Google group, the members of Groundswell — including aides to congressional Republicans — cook up battle plans for their…

Behold, The Mercedes Golf Cart of the Future


Professional golfer Phil Mickelson may have won the British Open last weekend, but Mercedes-Benz won the competition for the best golf cart – or concept for one.

(MORE:How Phil Mickelson Nabbed the British Open Championship)

During the tournament, the car company released design sketches of a “Vision Golf Cart”, which looks less like a golf cart and more like a miniature futuristic SUV. It would be an electric car, powered by batteries that are charged by solar-panels on the roof of the vehicle, FOX News reports. Golfers sitting in either the passenger seat or the driver’s seat can maneuver it using a joystick in the middle instead of a steering wheel. The car also features, according to the New York Daily News:

a state-of-the art media system accompanied by touch screen monitors, and a multimedia panel with a rotatable docking station for an iPad or…

Rescued Sea Turtle Finds New Home at Las Vegas Casino


The Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas has welcomed its latest VIP resident, a 320-pound green sea turtle named OD.

The approximately 50-year-old turtle joins the luxury casino’s Shark Reef Aquarium from the Florida Keys-based Turtle Hospital, where staffers have been caring for him for the last five years, the Associated Press reports.

OD is short for Ocean Diver, the name of the charter boat that discovered him in 2008, floating off the coast of Key Largo. Hospital officials diagnosed him with an irreparable collapsed lung, leaving the turtle floating lopsided. Using marine epoxy in an effort to correct the turtle’s condition, officials fastened weights to his shell to help balance him out.

The Shark Reef Aquarium, a vast 22-feet deep, 1.3 million-gallon tank, will give OD more stimulation and more space. Mandalay staffers welcomed the famed turtle Friday after his 2,400 mile trip in a specially moisturized and…
