  1. For the less self-controlled and lower internally moral out there, we have discovered a new creative way to make violent threats - third person wishing. It is now against board rules to wish physical harm on an individual, unnamed person, or group due to their political affiliation or any other reason you didn't like what they say. No more hoping someone gets punched in the face, no more hoping someone gets shot by a double gauge, nothing like that at all. There will be no warnings. Thank you for your compliance.

  9. 19 years ago, today, is when the destruction of America began. Osama Bin Laden succeeded. The attacks unleashed a wave of paranoia and fear that has split this country down the middle to where we are now. Without the attacks on America and the ripple effect from that day, spurring hatred for other countries, other religions, other people there is no President Trump. There is no revenge for President Bush. There may not have been an Obama and there certainly wouldn't be the hatred for the man with the Muslim name in the Oval Office. When I picture life in America before 9/11 and since, I shudder with the sorrow of how our country has lost its way. bin Laden didn't just destroy buildings and kill people, he killed our spirit. He killed our identity and our place as leaders of the world. He killed our Democracy and we lost our freedoms. 19 years is a lifetime. Every kid in school was born into this post-9/11 world and never knew a time we didn't have a "War on Terror" and what it's done to this country. That's what I'll never forget.
  10. For those of you complaining about too much politics on this board, use the Topic Filters located just above the top of the thread listing. There you can choose what topic(s) you want to view. This is a board that values free speech - something the country desperately needs, especially at this difficult time in history. If we made politics (or other forums) a separate forum, it becomes the same five guys insulting each other with virtually no value. If we have the topics in the main forum, even temporarily before you select your preferred topic button, more people will participate and we will get at least some quality debate and discussion. The only established rule is that if you say something that is generally considered grossly inappropriate, like the intentional use of racial epithets, then you MUST engage in legitimate, sustained debate in the forums related to your comment. If you don't, then you will be permanently banned. So far we've only had one banning and I'm not even sure that was a real person. Lit spent a considerable amount of time getting these buttons to work properly and we should appreciate that effort. He has demonstrated his commitment to free speech over the years, and for that I applaud him. Please use the topic buttons if you don't want to see all the political posts. It's literally one single click and they will all be gone. I think that's more than reasonable.

  12. Watch as illusionist David Blaine flies over Arizona desert while holding balloons PAGE, Ariz. — Illusionist David Blaine floated over the Arizona desert on Wednesday by holding onto about 50 helium balloons. He began his ascent on Wednesday morning, and the performance, which he titled "Ascension," took about an hour from lift-off to landing. Though his initial goal was to reach an altitude of about 18,000 feet, he ended up floating 24,900 feet, or about 4.7 miles, before skydiving and parachuting back to the ground. "Wow!" he exclaimed as he landed. "That was awesome!"
  13. Breonna Taylor's ex-boyfriend was offered a deal to say she was involved in organized crime The lead attorney representing Breonna Taylor's family says Louisville prosecutors offered Jamarcus Glover — her ex-boyfriend who is facing multiple drug-related charges — a plea deal that listed Taylor, who was shot and killed by police in her own home in March, as a co-defendant in the case. Sam Aguiar posted a picture of the purported plea deal on Facebook Monday. "[Jefferson County] Commonwealth Attorney Tom Wine tried to give the Elliott Ave. defendants a plea deal on July 13 which would have identified Breonna Taylor as a 'co-defendant' for actions related to the arrests on April 22, 2020," Aguiar said in the post. "[W]hen was Breonna Taylor ever a co-defendant? And oh by the way, the cops killed her a month and a half before April 22 and four months to the day before the date of this effort to get a plea deal." Aguiar added, "This goes to show how desperate Tom Wine ... is to justify the wrongful search of Breonna Taylor’s home, her killing and arrest of Kenneth Walker."
  14. I just re-watched this Documentary last weekend when I heard he was not doing well. So sad. One of my Rock heroes. RIP Frankie!| Quiet Riot’s Frankie Banali Dead at 68 Drummer, who played on “Cum On Feel the Noize” and “Metal Health,” had been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer last spring Frankie Banali, who played drums on Quiet Riot’s best-selling albums and kept the band going for nearly four decades, died Thursday at the age of 68. He had been diagnosed with stage IV pancreatic cancer last April. The band’s agent, Mark Hyman, confirmed the news to Rolling Stone. Banali joined Quiet Riot in 1982, one year before the band released its blockbuster breakthrough album, Metal Health. The singles “Cum On Feel the Noize” and “Metal Health (Bang Your Head)” featured Banali’s hard-hitting drumming, and the group’s mixture of tough heavy-metal riffs and glam-rock sensibilities played well at radio and on the newly launched MTV. Metal Health became the first heavy-metal record to top the Billboard 200, knocking the Police’s Synchronicity off the charts; it sold more than 6 million copies. Their 1984 follow-up, Condition Critical, was also a big hit, making it to Number 15 on the Billboard 200 and selling more than 1 million copies on the strength of “Mama Weer All Crazee Now.” “He fought hard until the end,” Dee Snider commented on Twitter. “His playing and rock & roll spirit will live forever.”

  17. Pentagon Has ‘Off-World Vehicles Not Made on This Earth’ Bombshell: The government’s once-clandestine UFO program will reveal findings on unexplained materials and crashes. The Pentagon's on-and-off-again, once-covert UFO program is decidedly back on—and will soon reveal some of its findings to the public. An astrophysicist who consulted on the UFO program confirms the government possesses materials from “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.” The news comes on the heels of the Navy's official release of three notorious UFO videos. For years, the U.S. government has repeatedly changed its tune regarding its official involvement with UFO research. As recently as February, a Pentagon spokesperson told Popular Mechanics that, while a government program did investigate unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and other unexplained aerial phenomena for some time last decade, funding dried up in 2012. But when Popular Mechanics thoroughly investigated the covert program, multiple sources said it’s still ongoing to this day. Now, a new report in the New York Times confirms those accounts. The government’s UFO unit currently resides in the Office of Naval Intelligence, where it “deals with classified matters,” per the report, even though the unit itself isn’t classified. The Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force is meant to “standardize collection and reporting” on sightings of UAVs and publicly divulge “at least some of its findings” twice a year, according to the Times. In a June Senate Committee Report, the Senate authorized appropriations for fiscal year 2021 for the task force, supporting its efforts to reveal any links that unidentified aerial phenomena “have to adversarial foreign governments, and the threat they pose to U.S. military assets and installations.” From the report: The Committee remains concerned that there is no unified, comprehensive process within the Federal Government for collecting and analyzing intelligence on unidentified aerial phenomena, despite the potential threat. The Committee understands that the relevant intelligence may be sensitive; nevertheless, the Committee finds that the information sharing and coordination across the Intelligence Community has been inconsistent, and this issue has lacked attention from senior leaders. Therefore, the Committee directs the DNI, in consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the heads of such other agencies as the Director and Secretary jointly consider relevant, to submit a report within 180 days of the date of enactment of the Act, to the congressional intelligence and armed services committees on unidentified aerial phenomena (also known as ‘‘anomalous aerial vehicles’’), including observed airborne objects that have not been identified. Senator Marco Rubio, who chairs the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, told a CBS affiliate in Florida that he’s most interested to learn from the task force who’s responsible for unidentified aircraft spotted over American military bases. Rubio said he hopes “the Chinese or Russians or some other adversary” hasn’t made “some sort of technological leap” that “allows them to conduct this sort of activity.” “That to me,” Rubio said, “is a national security risk and one we should be looking into.” While such UAVs may very well come from foreign adversaries, the other possibility, of course, is that we can’t pinpoint their origins from anywhere on this planet. And that’s where the New York Times report gets really interesting. Harry Reid, the former Nevada senator who was instrumental in funding the original UFO program, told the Times he believes that “crashes from other worlds had occurred, and that retrieved materials had been studied secretly for decades, often by aerospace companies under government contracts.” From the article: “After looking into this, I came to the conclusion that there were reports— some were substantive, some not so substantive—that there were actual materials that the government and the private sector had in their possession.” The astrophysicist Eric Davis, who consulted with the Pentagon’s original UFO program, told the Times that after he examined certain materials, he came to the conclusion that “we couldn’t make [them] ourselves.” In fact, Davis briefed a Department of Defense (DOD) agency as recently as March about retrieving materials from “off-world vehicles not made on this earth.” The New York Times report, and the anticipated public disclosure of findings from Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force, are the latest in encouraging recent developments surrounding UFO research. Back in April, the U.S. Navy officially published three videos that show unidentified aerial vehicles are genuine, several years after the notorious clips first leaked online and properly ushered in the UFO renaissance. In 2019, the Navy confirmed the three videos, taken by Navy pilots, indeed show “unexplained aerial phenomena,” but the service also said the footage should have never been released to the public in the first place. Then in April, the service dropped the clips on its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) page, a repository for documents released under the federal law that allows for the full or partial disclosure of U.S. government information to the public. The clips were first released in 2017 and 2018 by The New York Times and To The Stars Academy of Arts & Science, a UFO research group from former blink-182 member Tom DeLonge. “After a thorough review,” a Pentagon spokesperson told Popular Mechanics in April, “the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena.” DOD released the videos in order to “clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos.” Popular Mechanics has reached out to the Pentagon for comment and will update this story accordingly.
