Talk about carrying a grudge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A central Kentucky theater owner who trained pilots during the Vietnam War is refusing to show the nation’s top movie, “The Butler” because one of the stars is Jane Fonda who was an outspoken opponent of the conflict.
(I don’t know about you folks, but I can forgive Jane for just about anything after watching the movie “Barbarella!”)

WINDSOR, — Officials say a pile of goat manure spontaneously caught fire, spreading stench and wrinkling noses but causing no damage.

Windsor City Manager Tom Marsh says the odor that followed the fire evoked “a damp kind of burning leaves or brush fire.”
The Valley News (http://bit.ly/1f4pD7u) reports 120 cubic yards of goat manure spontaneously combusted at the 800-goat Oak Knoll Dairy early Wednesday morning, erupting into small flames and spreading an odor that both perplexed and amused people.

Farm owner George Redick says the manure would typically have been spread around the farm earlier in the year, but the rainy season and other factors kept that from happening.
He says he used to think spontaneous combustion was a myth, but now he’s a believer.

In true pro wrestling style, Hulk Hogan was defeated by Toronto Mayor Rob Ford Friday morning in an arm wrestling match.
hulk“The only reason he beat me is because he’s younger,” Hogan, 60, said of the 44-year-old mayor, who the former wrestling champ nicknamed “Fantastic Ford.”
It didn’t seem like much of a fair fight when they entered the room prior to the match. One man stood at 6’7 and had biceps that seemed to go for days. The other wore a suit and was Rob Ford.
But after 22 seconds of a stalemate, Ford suddenly slammed Hogan’s arm down to the table. Ford raised his arms victoriously, while Hogan grimaced, holding his shoulder.

The “Fracking” controversy continues here in North America!
untitledFrom New York to New Mexico, more than 100 municipalities have passed fracking bans or temporary moratoriums, according to FracTracker, a nonprofit organization that compiles data on the oil and gas industry.
They even had a big budget Hollywood movie about FRACKING!
The film – Promised Land, co-written and starring Matt Damon – has the energy industry’s supporters fuming over how they have been painted as the bad guy.
The movie is full of scare-mongering rather than facts, they say.
What they should have said is that the movie is also FINANCED AND PROMOTED BY GULF OIL STATES like the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.
Just remember that 90% of the bad stuff you hear about fracking is FRACKING NONSENSE!
(Just like the wind turbine bullshit!)
