Although Michael Jackson's death has grabbed all the headlines, there have been several famous celebrities who have died recently whose star is on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Farrah Fawcett made some headlines our the world, as did Ed McMahon, but the articles about McMahon overlooked his incredible service to his country in World War II and the Korean War as a Marine aviator.
One of the best and the brightest was Fred Travalena (October 6, 1942 - June 28, 2009). At one point in his career, Fred was a regular on Johnny Carson's show and some of the best television shows of the day. He also hosted his own television specials.
If you don't remember him, and you should, it may be because Fred w...
A UK government report says that many of their young primary school children, even as young as 4-years-old, are being removed from class for "inappropriate sexual behavior." The sexual behavior involved touching other children inappropriately and using sexually graphic language.
The breadth of the problem precludes it being something stemming from individual families. Rather, Norman Wells, head of the Family Education Trust in the UK says, "We are failing to learn the lesson that introducing children to sexual language and imagery, whether on television, videos, DVDs, the Internet, or in formal school lessons will inevitably break down children's natural sense of reserve."
To this comment, we can only add a hearty, Amen!
This report conf...
Dakota Fanning, the 15-year-old child actress who played a rape victim in HOUNDDOG last year, is at it again. It was announced that she and actress Kristen Stewart (from the TWILIGHT movie fame) will have a "steamy bedroom scene" together in the movie THE RUNAWAYS, a biography of rock star Joan Jett.
The obvious question comes to mind, "What are her parents thinking?"

Today's average life expectancy is more than 75, so why did Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett die at age 50 and 62, especially when they were wealthy people who had access to top-of-the-line medical care?
The answer may be in the immoral lifestyles that the two celebrities led.
For example, author Ian Halperin has reported that Jackson's interest may not just have been in young boys but also in having homosexual affairs with young men.
Halperin reports that Jackson allegedly had homosexual affairs with two young men and that witnesses say strings of other young men often visited his house. Jackson's alleged homosexual lifestyle and celebrity-fueled dissipation led to a dangerous mix of prescription drugs, an addiction that allegedly beg...
Liberal Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has admitted that she thought genocide - limiting "growth in populations that we don't want too many of" - was the intent of the original 1973 Supreme Court ruling to make abortion legal throughout the U.S.A.
The Justice's Nazi-like comments came during an interview with the New York Times Magazine that appears in the July 12 edition of that newspaper.
According to the Guttmacher Institute in July 2008, 37% of all abortions in the U.S. are given to black women, meaning that black women are about three times more likely than white women to get abortions.
The pro-abortion, birth control movement was founded by real racists who called themselves eugenicists, and Justice Ginsburg seems to b...

July 10, 2009 was a great date to be deeply grieved and distressed. Universal Studios released "Brüno," arguably the most vile and pornographic movie ever released by a major American movie studio. On the same date, I LOVE YOU, BETH COOPER, another despicable comedy, also hits theaters.
The great American evangelist Billy Sunday once said:
"When may a revival be expected? When the wickedness of the wicked grieves and distresses the Christian."
If Americans, especially Christian Americans, cannot be grieved and distressed on July 10, 2009, we are like salt that has lost it's savor, and we're good for nothing but to be trampled on by Hollywood.
If your son or daughter died, you might be grieved an...

Sacha Baron Cohen knows who his enemies are.
The depraved "mind" from England behind BRÜNO, Cohen's enemies are Americans, Christians, Southerners, and now Orthodox Jews and African Americans who don't share his pornographic taste in promoting the radical homosexual movement and other liberal causes. Especially those in California who voted for Proposition 8 in 2008, which legally protects the traditional definition of marriage.
Cohen's new mockumentary (or fake documentary), BRÜNO, is worse than any decent human being can imagine. It is full of pornographic images unfit for human consumption. And, it's being released by a major movie studio in Hollywood, one of the co-owners of the Motion Picture Association ...
Los Angeles, Calif. - Movieguide®: The Family Guide to Movies and Entertainment has sent a letter asking local government officials throughout the U.S. to consider stopping the screening of the controversial movie "Brüno" starring comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, Movieguide® Publisher Dr. Ted Baehr announced today.
In the letter, Movieguide® asks officials to get an injunction against screening the movie on Friday until officials can look at the movie and determine whether it should be banned because it does not fit the "community standards" in their area, as defined by U.S. Supreme Court rulings on obscenity and pornography.
"This movie has been cut to get an R rating," Dr. Baehr said, "but it still contains much pornographic, offen...
The long-term fate of the U.S. Dollar is now in doubt.
According to Blomberg on July 6, not only China, but also Russia and India, are now claiming that the world is too reliant on the U.S. Dollar.
Russia has called for a new international reserve currency. Meanwhile, an economic advisor to India's president, is urging that country "to diversify its foreign holdings away from the dollar."
Experts don't expect the world's dependency on the Dollar to end anytime soon, however.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which produces the Oscar ceremony each year, has decided to expand its list of nominees for Best Film from five to ten.
The move is expected to let popular big studio movies like THE DARK KNIGHT, IRON MAN and UP compete with the smaller, less popular independent movies that lately have been getting all of the Oscar nominations.
Each year, MOVIEGUIDE® has been nominating 10 movies to compete for its Best Family Movie Crystal Teddy Bear Award.
