Archaeologist believes he’s found ‘Dracula’s dungeon’

An archaeologist who has been part of the restoration and excavation effort at Turkey’s Tokat Castle believes he has uncovered the dungeons where Vlad the Impaler was once held.

Very cool! The photo here, however, is not that of Tokat Castle in Turkey…but rather Castle Bran in Transylvania, Romania. As an aside, Castle Bran is actually up for sale currently. So, if you have roughly $80 MILLION handy, you could own one of Vald III’s (aka Vlad the Impaler…aka Dracula) castles. C’mon.. How cool would that be?! 🙂

KISS’ Peter Criss: You don’t need boobs to get breast cancer

Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Peter Criss on leaning on his faith and raising awareness about breast cancer

A really great interview with Peter Criss, founding member/drummer of the rock band KISS. He was diagnosed with male breast cancer. Yep, you read that correctly. He talks about that experience and being inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of fame along with the rest of the founding members. Peter is a class act, and takes the higher road when the interviewer gives him an opportunity to bash KISS bassist Gene Simmons, and the bands lead singer Paul Stanley.

Washington Times settles case with Homeland over improper seizure of reporter’s notes

Documents improperly taken in raid on Audrey Hudson’s home identified confidential sources

Glad the courts were able to provide this reporter some restitution of her notes and such. But, this is yet another example of this Obama administration overstepping its authority. DHS had NO right whatsoever to confiscate this reporters notes and materials.

US poised to become world’s leading liquid petroleum producer

The US is overtaking Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest producer of liquid petroleum, in a sign of how its booming oil production has reshaped the energy sector.

Great news!! But, its just the first step. Our domestic energy laws and policies are counterproductive, and we have a White House and administration that is anti-oil, anti-coal, and frankly anti jobs. To those fascists its just green, green, green. Just imagine how many Americans we could put to work if we encouraged domestic oil drilling, clean coal production, fracking in the Dakotas and Colorado, and sealed our porous border. Just imagine how our economy would take off!

CDC confirms first case of Ebola in US: UPDATE

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed on Tuesday that a patient being treated at a Dallas hospital has tested positive for Ebola, the first case diagnosed in the United States.

This is an update to the story we posted earlier this afternoon.. The man in question came from Liberia, one of the African nations afflicted with Ebola. How was this man allowed into the U.S. to begin with?!? Holy crap!! The first thing that the State Dept should do is IMMEDIATELY suspend ALL travel and visas from ANYONE from Libera, Sieera Leone, and any other nation where there has been an Ebola outbreak. That’s just common sense, and is in our nation’s national security interests, for crying out loud! If we’re willing to send 3,000 U.S. military troops to do God knows what in Africa, then the very least we can do is suspend ALL travel from ALL persons from ALL of the African nations affected by Ebola. Period!
