Not sure if this got posted:Jean Darling Dies: ‘Our Gang’ And Silent Era Actress Was 93


Jean Darling, one of the last surviving original cast members of the “Our Gang” comedy short subjects who also appeared in the original Broadway production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Carousel, has died. Darling was 93 and died Friday in Rodgau, Germany, where she had lived with her son, Roy Bowen. She’s pictured above at far left with other members of Our Gang. Her friend Rene Riva, a Dutch actor and singer who directed Darling in 2013 in the short silent comedy film “The Butler’s Tale,” confirmed her death. Darling was also believed to be one of the last surviving actors who worked during the silent film era.


How are these insane nuts winning elections?


Arkansas Republican says he’ll shoot you if you ask him about his job in public

A Republican state senator from Arkansas boasted on Twitter that he is prepared to shoot to kill if people do not approach him with proper amount of respect as he goes about his daily business.

According to the Arkansas Times blog, Sen. Jason Rapert was out at Lowe’s hardware recently when constituent Lance White approached him to ask a question about public policy.


Maybe we shouldn't have laughed...Maybe we should have became concerned?

Maybe this should have been a warning?

Texas lawyer exposes religious hiring test for peace officers: County only wanted Baptist constables


A Texas judge ruled last week that a case against Williamson County could go forward after a job applicant claimed that commissioners had a religious test for constable jobs.

Robert Lloyd explained at a press conference that Williamson County asked about his views on marriage, abortion and religion during a 2013 interview for a job at the Williamson County Precinct 3 Constable’s Office.

“I was shocked,” Lloyd said, according to KVUE. “I was sick to my stomach when I left because I had never believed that things like this in government would go on.”

I'm starting to see a pattern here. People don't understand the first amendment.

Kentucky clerk petitions for governor to excuse her from issuing same-sex marriage licenses


Lawyers for jailed Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis said on Monday they had asked an appellate court to force Governor Steve Beshear to let her refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses based on her religious convictions.

The lawyers sought emergency relief from the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals, asking it to grant Davis an exemption from the “Governor’s mandate that all county clerks issue marriage licenses,” the non-profit legal advocacy group Liberty Counsel, which represents Davis, said in a news release.


My Step-Mom thinks should be allowed an accommodation. I am torn on this. Maybe if she didn't act like a jerk I would lean a little more towards it BUT then I am thinking after all the BS she caused she should be fired.

I have seen businesses and even local government office accommodate individuals for various regions some of which was for religious belief. But when someone force their belief on others I feel like they should be knocked off their pedestal.

EDIT: Thanks to Liberal Veteran I have a new understanding. post # 6. If she was given the choice to let someone else to issue the marriage license and she isn't letting anyone issue them Kim can rot in jail.

SitnexttoKimDavis twitter account gives some interesting insight.

Woman not afraid of the F bomb and funny.


How many times was Kim Davis brought before the court today?

Update: Wife got some medicine... "The flood gate is closed" Wife words.

So yesterday evening my wife called the GYN to see if they could get her in sooner or give her something. Doctor was nice said the 10th was the earliest. She did order something for my wife she takes 2 times a day. By This afternoon she had no bleeding.

Still going to keep all the appointments.

She wanted to thank you all for support.

Need to vent. Had to take my wife to the hospital Saturday night.

Female issues to the point of her getting dizzy from the bleeding. 2 days past her cycle changing every 40-45 minutes. sometimes double pads on. We are there until 3:30 am( got there at )

They did give her fluids BUT the first IV imploded in her arm. They claim her "levels" were not in danger and they basically sent her home with adult diapers because her bleeding was so extreme saying there was nothing they could do and she just have to let it run its course.

My poor wife is still bleeding heavy she an appointment to see her pcp Thurs, she couldn't get an appointment with a specialist until the 10th.

Is women's healthcare really this bad in this country?

I get embarrassed talking or listening about these issues (I am sure most men do) But I am piss watching my wife so tired and using adult dippers at night because there isn't a pill or even a shot to give her to stop this even temporary.

Duggar’s ‘rehab’ facility run by pastor accused of protecting sexual predator from prosecution: repo


A leader at the Christian rehabilitation center Josh Duggar supposedly checked into is helping another accused sexual predator avoid prosecution by keeping him abroad, Patheos reports.

Duggar has purportedly sought treatment at Reformers Unanimous — a facility run by North Love Baptist Church. The pastor of North Love Baptist, Paul Kingsbury, helped a man accused of sexual assault remain on a religious mission overseas to avoid prosecution in the United States, according to Patheos.


I'm beginning to understand my wife's distain for organize religion and Fundamental Christians in particular.
