    • After Being Stared Down by a Couple in Cracker Barrel, This Dad Received a Note About Parenting

      When Kevon Smith Sr. sat down for breakfast at Cracker Barrel with his son Kevon Jr. in Willoughby, OH, he had no idea he was going to make headlines just for being a good dad. Kevon noticed a couple staring and smiling at him and his 3-month-old son, and although he was confused, he just went on with the meal. "I noticed this older couple over in the corner," he said. "They kept smiling at me and I was looking at my son like, 'What is going on?'" But when Kevon left the restaurant, it all made sense, as he saw a note on his car from the couple praising his parenting along with cash to cover his breakfast. "Today your meal is on my wife and me," it read. "Enjoy that baby as long as God intends.

    • The Trump White House Is Focusing on the Real Issues, Like How No One Attended His Inauguration

      The Trump propaganda machine is already lying to the American people. So Donald Trump's Inauguration came and went and no one was that excited about it. Sure, some people did show up, but it was an incredibly disappointment when compared to Barack Obama's 2009 inaugural. But don't take my word for it. Here are some photos via The New York Times. The juxtaposition is pretty stark. I mean there's just no question that Obama's crowd dwarfed Trump's, and the media reported as much. But, I'm sure our next President is too busy worrying about running the most powerful country in the world to focus on such a petty— OF COURSE HE ISN'T. No, on Saturday Donald Trump sent press secretary Sean Spicer out

    • The U.S. Navy's Biggest 'What-If': Could Super Battleships Make the Ultimate Comeback?

      Big ships with heavy armor are unlikely to solve the A2/AD dilemma. For decades, naval architects have concentrated on building ships that, by the standards of the World Wars, are remarkably brittle. The label “battleship” emerges from the older “ship of the line” formulation, in the sense that a navy’s largest ships participated in the “line of battle” formation that allowed them to bring their broadsides to bear on an opposing line. After the development of ironclad warships, the “battle ship” diverged from the armored cruiser based on expectations of usage; “battleships” were expected to fight enemy “battleships.” The modern battleship form settled around 1890, with the British Royal Sovereign class.

      The Indianapolis Colts fired GM Ryan Grigson on Saturday. It seemed like a move that needed to happen, as Indy’s on-field performance over the last few years has declined while rumblings of a rift between Grigson and Chuck Pagano have been out there for a while. McAfee has been in Indianapolis since 2009, so he’s seen the inner workings of this organization before and during the Grigson years.

    • White House claims largest crowd size in history, despite evidence to the contrary

      In striking comments, White House press secretary Sean Spicer used his first official statement on Saturday to castigate the media for what he claimed was “deliberately false reporting,” including reporting on the attendance at President Trump’s inauguration. Spicer was particularly incensed about photos shared on social media by members of the press comparing the crowd at Trump’s ceremony with those at inaugurations past. A number of reporters posted side-by-side photographs of the crowds amassed for the inauguration of Trump on Friday and for Barack Obama eight years before.

    • Trump's first executive action: Cancel Obama's mortgage premium cuts

      WASHINGTON — The very first executive action by the new Trump administration wasn't a sweeping order on immigration, trade or health care — but rather to block an Obama administration policy change that would have reduced the cost of mortgages for millions of home buyers. In the first hour of Trump's presidency, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development sent a letter to lenders, real estate brokers and closing agents suspending the 0.25 percentage point premium rate cut for Federal Housing Administration-backed loans. That cut would have saved home buyers about $29 a month on a $200,000 mortgage. But Republicans cast the move as hasty and said it threatened to undermine the stability

    • President Trump’s Inauguration Crowd Doesn’t Look Like Barack Obama’s Did in 2009

      A side-by-side comparison of the crowds at former President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump‘s respective inaugurations reveals that Trump’s crowd isn’t as large as he boasted it would be. Two aerial photographs of the National Mall from the two historic days reveal large patches of white ground exposed during Trump’s ceremony, spaces crowds had filled during Obama’s 2009 inauguration. Federal and local agencies estimated 700,000 to 900,000 people would be in Washington, D.C. for Trump’s inauguration on Friday, roughly half the number of people who attended Obama’s first presidential inauguration.
