Police in Kentucky detained and frisked an entire bar full of customers

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A video showing LMPD officers detaining and frisking customers at Cahoots, a bar on Bardstown Road, is making the Internet rounds.

The video -- shot Tuesday night by someone inside the bar -- allegedly shows a LMPD officer telling patrons and employees to sit down, stay there, and wait to be frisked. The video had more than 12,000 views on YouTube in less than 24 hours.

"Show of hands, who has something on them that they shouldn't have?" asked the officer, who then announced they were going to pat down every customer before they would be allowed to leave.

Let's play Jeopardy! Answer and Question Posted

Answer: Andrew Johnson, Chester A. Arthur, and Lyndon Johnson.

Question: Which VPs who were older than the Presidents they served under, who then later became Presidents?

What's the point here??? No VP who has been older than the President has ever become President unless the President dies in office. This is interesting because Biden is 19 years older than Obama and Cheney is 5 years older than Bush (also Lieberman is 6 years older than Gore). The older VP picks of elections 2000 and later go against the previous trend of picking younger VP's.

I have some ideas about why this is happening but would like your ideas first.

Obama's New War Fails to Wow War Inc. Stocks

Let's correlate Barack Hussein's announcement of the Third Iraq War with stock prices of the biggest weapons manufacturers. Did stock prices surge on the threat of enormous war profits? Generally, yes. But then stocks generally sunk lower than pre-announcement prices. Why? Could it be that investors don't trust Obama as their Warlord-in-Chief?

CACI International Inc. Army communication tech. Up a dollar on 9/10, down $1.50 today.

Halliburton Co. [Dick Cheney’s gas trucks.] Up forty cents on 9/10, down a dollar today.

Navistar International Corp. [Army trucks.] Up fifty cents on 9/10, down seventy cents today.

ManTech International Corp. [Army surveillance.] Up thirty cents on 9/10, down two bits today.

Hewlett-Packard Co. [Army intranet.] Up a few cents on 9/10, continues to slide today.

Teen Faces 2 Year Jail Sentence For Sexy Photo With Jesus Statue

It wouldn’t be Friday without a teen facing two years of jailtime for taking sexually compromising photos with a Jesus statue and then posting them on Facebook would it? Of course it wouldn’t.

KRON4 reports that the photos were taken and uploaded in July in front of the “Love in the Name of Christ” Christian organization in his hometown of Everett.

Judge & Prosecutor Who Let Ray Rice Go Are Pursuing Jail Sentence For Mom Who Carried Licensed Gun

Which action do you think should be penalized more harshly, punching a woman in the face or carrying a handgun as a means of self-defense?

If you guessed punching a woman in the face, then you would not be in line with the authorities in Atlantic County, New Jersey. A judge and prosecutor are pursuing a much harsher punishment for the victimless crime of carrying a gun than the disgraceful crime of a man, caught on video, punching a woman in the face.

Rare Footage of Civil War Veterans Doing the Rebel Yell

Got a big surprise when I watched this video. Then again, I'm a Yankee, so what would I know about it? Turns out that "Rebel Yell" isn't at all what I'd heard it to be. Sounds more like a Native American shout to me, as one of the comments below the video pointed out. Not that this matters but, I thought it was interesting. What do you think?

Yale Law Professor Bruce Ackerman: Obama's new war is illegal and unconstitutional

PRESIDENT OBAMA’s declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris.

TSA Demands to Conduct Full Body Pat Down on Man After His Plane Already Landed

I have never seen the TSA request for a full body patdown or additional screening AFTER the passenger has landed. It is amazing how incompetent they are.

Also, I am new here and can't get the youtube Embed to work...

My mom has passed away.

I wanted to thank everyone who offered their prayers, thoughts, and kind words. Including Nonna, Michael and many, many others.

My mom didn't beat the cancer. She passed away on Sunday and her funeral was today. I am at a loss for words, which as most here know is a rare condition for me.

She was truly one of the absolute most important people in my life.

I prepared her funeral, as she requested, but still feel like I didn't do enough.

I am so glad I came to be with her in the end, but I wish it hadn't been the end.

Spend every moment as your last. Make sure that every moment is what you want because there are a finite number of moments in this life, but, most are wasted.

Don't waste any. Don't try to change the world.

They Want War

EdinNY's poem Waking Up called to mind Bay Area artist Remo Conscious's 2006 song Lies, which I first heard as the closing credits rolled on Loose Change.From that short snip, I was captivated by the music and lyrics and quickly found the song, artist, and the album Infiltration.

The internet still felt new, an incredible sharing tool for documentaries like Loose Change, artists like Remo Conscious, and statesmen like Ron Paul.

I bought the CD from Remo's website. It came in a hand addressed envelope, with a short handwritten note of thanks from the artist. We had a short correspondence and let him know how important his music was to me. I listened to Infiltration intently through 2007 as I was building the Daily Paul and watching Ron Paul on the debate stage. The message and the music of that entire album is embedded into the DNA of this site.

Anyone Else Excited by Year-Low Silver?

My wife and I just bought 200 ounces two days ago. Now it appears that silver is at the low for the year! I've never seen it drop below $18 something for the past couple years so... maybe I need to get another 100 while it is still on sale. Is anyone else excited to stack this week?
