Possibly the Coolest Monument Ever.

At precisely 11:11 a.m. each Veterans Day (Nov. 11), the sun’s rays pass through the ellipses of the five Armed Services pillars to form a perfect solar spotlight over a mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States.

“We’re A Church First.”

St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church in Brookings, Oregon is caught in the crossfire because of their desire to feed people, including the homeless.

Since 2009, the church has been feeding the the homeless as part of the City approved “Community Kitchen Project,” where various churches and organizations banned together to feed the needy. Each member would offer food several times a week, and the different days allowed people to be getting food.

For years, St. Timothy’s and other churches and charitable outfits in Brookings have been providing free meals to the area’s poor through their joint Community Kitchen Project. Each participating organization took one or two days a week to serve food to the needy from their own property.

Proud And Fierce? Nope.

The South Carolina University are known as the “Chanticleers.” If you are wondering what a “chanticleer” is, it is defined as a “proud and fierce rooster,” according to the school.

One would think that with a mascot like that, the University would be diligent and fierce in defending things like freedom of speech.

And you’d be wrong.

The school’s lack of moral and ethical spine begins with a visiting artist teaching a class in the school’s Theatre Department.

FIRE describes what happened next:

On Sept. 16, a visiting artist was working with two students of color after class, and one student expressed that she felt isolated and would like to get to know other non-white students in the department. The visiting artist asked about whether it might be helpful for non-white students to connect as a group, and she and the students wrote out the names of other non-white students on the classroom whiteboard while brainstorming ideas.

Veterans Day 2021.

It is the soldier, not the reporter, Who has given us freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the organizer, Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protestor to burn the flag.

Author: Charles Michael Province, U.S. Army

Today is Veterans Day, a day in which we in America should pause and recognize the service of the men and women who protect our freedoms, defend the innocent, and act as a deterrent to evil in the world.

As long as there are people and nations seeking to deny rights and basically enslave others, there will be a need for the military to stand up and say, “no. Not today. Not on my watch.”

You have to admire, appreciate and honor that stance – that devotion – that willingness to lay your life on the line so others can live in freedom.

Today, we take time to thank veterans for their service.



Tiny Houses.

Tiny House Hand Up, Inc. (THHU) is a non profit group in Georgia.

The group sought to build what are called “tiny homes” in Calhoon, Georgia.

The Georgia nonprofit is ready to break ground on the “Cottages at King Corner,” a community of beautiful, Southern-style cottages with 540 to 600 square feet of living space each. They have housing plans, support from a financial institution to help finance mortgages, and contractors at the ready.

The costs of the homes would be in the $90,000 – $99,000 range which would make the American dream of home ownership in the reach of many.

There’s only one problem: the City of Calhoun won’t let the homes be built.

Calhoun, like many cities, has a restriction on the size of homes being constructed. In the case of the Georgia town, that size is 1150 square feet – almost twice the size of the proposed tiny homes.

Good Cops, Bad Cops, What the Heck Cops?

There it was.

In May 30, 2020, after the death of George Floyd, a white, unmarked van, rolled down the streets of Minneapolis firing weapons at random people.

When confronted by the shots, one Jaleel K. Stallings (seen above,) did what people might expect. He returned fire from his legally owned handgun.

The van stopped and the people in the van exited toward Stallings.

It is here the story goes off the rails in a big way.

The people in the van were police officers.

You read that right.

The police.

Ketchup Bottles Are “Offensive.”

We were hoping that this was sarcasm or a bad joke, but we can find no indication that it is.

Adrian Shann is upset with the ketchup served at Pizza Hut.

You read that right.

According to Hull Live, Adrian Shann, a man in Hull, England, recently confronted a horrifying ketchup bottle on his first-ever visit to Pizza Hut. He noticed that the barbecue sauce bottles on the table read “squeeze,” but the ketchup containers came labeled with the words “Shake, Squeeze, and Squirt.” Shann immediately felt taken aback by the ketchup and told Hull Live, “It literally sounds like an app for swingers. I do not understand how someone could put that sentence together, it’s awful.” The diner immediately filed a complaint with Pizza Hut.
