PGA Tour Star Announces He’ll Paint Over Confederate Flag On Original ‘General Lee’

Only days after TV Land announced they would stop airing reruns of “Dukes of Hazzard,” another piece of Bo and Luke’s legacy is going the way of the dodo.

PGA Tour star Bubba Watson announced on Thursday night that he’d decided to paint over the Confederate flag on the roof of his “General Lee.”


Sheriff: Maryland Woman Gave Kids Marijuana At Party

LEXINGTON PARK, Md. (AP) — Authorities in southern Maryland say a woman gave marijuana to children at a birthday party and tried to teach a 6-year-old how to smoke.

The St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office says deputies were called to a home on Treetop Road in Lexington Park early Friday to check on the welfare of several children. Officials say deputies spoke to 45-year-old Tabitha Cassidy, who indicated that she gave marijuana to three 13- and 14-year-olds at a party at her home.

Officials say Cassidy also tried to teach a 6-year-old child how to inhale marijuana. The sheriff’s office says deputies found suspected marijuana at Cassidy’s home.

Sign inside Baltimore police van under investigation

The Baltimore City Police Department has launched an internal investigation after a WBAL-TV 11 News viewer shared four photographs of a sign inside a city police wagon.

The photos show the doors of the parked police van left open. On the inside of the back door is a sign, attached or possibly stenciled on, that reads: "Enjoy your ride, cuz we sure will!"

The pictures were taken Tuesday near the Central District Police Station on Baltimore Street.

The sign's placement makes it clear that this is a message for people who are arrested to see after they're put in the back of the van and the doors are shut.


Video of NYPD cop boxing with hostile suspect under review

A knife-wielding man wasn’t going down without a fight — and an NYPD cop was there to give it to him.

A video released Thursday shows two plainclothes officers in Harlem trying to arrest Saykou George, who has two outstanding warrants and a record of ­assault.

But as George apparently resists arrest and tries to stalk off, one of the cops has to resort to putting up his fists to keep him from fleeing along Frederick Douglass Boulevard.

Meanwhile, the other officer, a woman, tries to grab the hulking George and slap cuffs on him, but he keeps resisting, according to the video.

Amid tense police-community relations — and with the bystander taking the video shouting over and over, “I got everything on camera” — the male cop keeps up the fight.


Boat Explosion Under Investigation In Southern Md.

SOLOMONS, Md. (WJZ) — A boat explosion is under investigation in Southern Maryland.

It happened around 6 p.m. at Spring Cove Marina on Solomons Island in Calvert County.

Police say a 38-foot cabin cruiser was fueling at the dock when the vessel exploded.



The return of the Confederacy was averted in the summer of 2015 when major retailers frantically scoured through their vast offerings to purge any images of a car from the Dukes of Hazzard. If not for their quick thinking, armies of men in gray might have come marching down the streets of New York and San Francisco to stop off for an Iced Mocha Frappucino ™ at a local Starbucks before restoring slavery.

History will little note nor long remember the tired wage slaves making $7.25 an hour while checking Amazon and eBay databases for tin models of an orange car with a Confederate flag on top. During this courageous defense of the homeland from the scourge of a mildly politically incorrect 80s show, Hillary Clinton committed her own unpardonable racist hate crime by saying, “All lives matter”.

The politically correct term is, “Black lives matter.”

Even while our own Boss Hoggs in DC and SF are locking up the Duke boys as a symbol of racism, they are loudly arguing that black lives matter, all lives don’t. The proportion that the weight of a life should be measured by race is the sort of idea that we might have associated with slavery. Today it’s an idea that we associate with racial tolerance as we heal our nation’s racial wounds one race riot at a time.

Romanticizing the South means a whipping from our cultural elite. Instead of romanticizing the culture that bought slaves, they romanticize the Middle Eastern and African cultures that sold them the slaves.

Not only do recent revelations concerning the endemic sexual grooming of British girls by Muslim men demonstrate how crippling political correctness is, but they show how political correctness complements the most abusive elements of Islamic law, or Sharia.

According to a June 24 report by the Birmingham Mail, as far back as March 2010, West Midlands Police knew that Muslim grooming gangs “were targeting children outside schools across the city—but failed to make the threat public.”

A confidential report obtained under a Freedom of Information Act indicates that police were well aware that British pupils were being targeted by mostly Muslim men. Several passages from the report make this clear:

Salisbury Fireworks Cancelled For Tonight

Due to the weather the Salisbury fireworks have been cancelled for tonight.  They have rescheduled the show for tomorrow night. 


ISIS “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi told followers of his terror group that destroying Egypt’s national monuments, such as the pyramids and the sphinx, is a “religious duty” that must be carried out by those who worship Islam, as idolatry is strictly banned in the religion, according to reports.

UK radical Islamist Anjem Choudary echoed Baghdadi’s sentiments, telling The Telegraph: “When Egypt comes under the auspices of the Khalifa [Caliphate], there will be no more pyramids, no more Sphinx, no more idolatry,” saying that the ancient statues’s destruction “will be just.”

Another Islamist preacher, Ibrahim Al Kandari, agrees that the cultural monuments need to be destroyed to comply with the Shariah.


Star Spangled Banner 7 yr old


Hate speech laws are going in all around the world, and progressive activists in the United States want to use these kinds of laws to destroy free speech in America.

You see, the truth is that these hate speech laws that are being implemented all over the planet are not just about preventing speech that promotes violence or genocide against a particular group of people. Instead, these laws are written in such a way that anyone that says something that “offends” or “insults” someone else is guilty of “hate speech”. Even if you never intended to offend anyone and you had no idea that your words were insulting, in some countries you can be detained without bail and sentenced to years in prison for such speech. Today, there are highly restrictive hate speech laws in Canada, in Mexico and in virtually every single European nation. The United States is still an exception, but the truth is that our liberties and freedoms are being eroded every single day, and it is only a matter of time until “hate speech laws” are used to take away our freedom of speech too.

If you don’t think that this could ever happen in America, you should consider what the American Bar Association has to say on the matter. This is the national organization that represents all of our lawyers, judges, etc. So when the ABA speaks on legal matters, it carries a significant amount of weight. The following is how the American Bar Association defines “hate speech”


OC cab companies bailing out

The possibility of an Uber-induced decline in the resort’s taxi medallion system appears to be accelerating from a slow bleed into a full-scale evisceration.

Two of the city’s largest taxi companies are now planning to sell off their city medallions (one with a classified in this newspaper) and move their businesses either to Delaware, or into the realm of digital “Transportation Network Services,” given the relative lack of restraint placed on web-based carriers in Maryland.

Further, talk of a taxi strike in Ocean City is gaining ground, with the possibility that the resort could join Mexico City, Paris, and other cities around in the world in seeing cabbies actively protest their loss of job security because of what they say is a bureaucratic bungle.

“I’m selling them, but so far nobody wants to buy,” said Michael Pawlowski, owner of Nite Club Taxi and Coastal Cab. The company holds 30 Ocean City taxi medallions, Pawlowski said.

Prank News Network: What People Will Believe About 4th of July

May tax receipts, room data show strong numbers

Recent statistical returns confirm what many people had observed last month – a sudden break in temperatures, coming off a particularly nasty winter, provided a substantial boost to the lodging industry in May.

Returns for the city’s room tax – a 4.5 percent levy on all hotel rooms and registered condo rentals – were the highest ever this May compared to the same month in previous years.

Proceeds from May 2015 totaled $1.26 million, an 11 percent boost over room tax income from 2014.


Boy chained up with dead chicken around neck tells his story

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Handcuffed and shackled to a block of steel, the young boy would brace himself when he heard footsteps outside his bedroom door. He knew that once the grown-ups entered, the abuse would begin.

For years, he was whipped with belts, his face was burned with electrical wires and his fingers were broken with pliers — all to “teach him a lesson.” The abusers, who have since pleaded guilty, were his legal guardian — a supervisor with the Department of Social Services in Union County, North Carolina — and her longtime boyfriend, an emergency room nurse.

The abuse ended in November 2013 after police discovered the boy in handcuffs, chained to the front porch of the house with a dead chicken hung around his neck.

When police entered the roach-infested house “covered with urine and animal feces,” they found something else: four other children, ages 7 to 14, who had been adopted by the couple over the years. They were removed and placed in protective custody.

Rebel flag apparel still sold in OC stores, if you can find it

Every so often an issue strikes a particular public nerve that leads to a cascade of criticism not necessarily related to the root cause, but affecting people not because of what beliefs they hold, but what they choose to sell.

In Ocean City and other beach communities, it often comes down to T-shirts available on the Boardwalk or any of the other shops in the resort. This time the issue is the Confederate flag, as politicians and the public itself respond to the deadly shootings at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, S.C. on June. 17.

Nine members of the congregation were killed by Dylann Roof, an avowed racist, leading to a call for the removal of the Confederate flag at that state’s capital because of its offensive nature to African-Americans.


Animal Lovers, Rejoice! In Tennessee, It Is Now LEGAL To Break Into A Car To SAVE A Hot Dog Left Inside!

Now that the scorching summer heat is upon us, it can be near unbearable to go outside. We’ve all been there before, not wanting to leave your house because it’s just too hot and dealing with the heat just seems like way too much. The feeling becomes even worse when you get in a car that has been baking in the sun for hours and your skin sticks to it and the metal part of your seat belt practically burns your skin off. And if you have dark interior...multiply that heat by a million because that's approximately how many degrees your car is when you get inside.

So, if we all know how hot our cars can get. . .why do some people continue to leave their dogs inside? Your car can heat up to extraordinary temperatures in just a matter of minutes and dogs have no way of opening the door and escaping. You wouldn’t leave your child in a hot car unattended, so why would you do it to your fur baby? Dogs can suffer from heatstroke and dehydration just like humans, even if you leave dog food and water inside.

George Takei Apologizes for Calling Clarence Thomas a “Clown in Blackface”

George Takei was held in an internment camp during the time of World War II. We get it, Lefties. Obviously that sucked for all Japanese-Americans back in the 40’s who had to endure being interned, but what does that have to do with Sulu calling Justice Clarence Thomas a “clown in blackface?”

One racist act somehow diminishes another? Come on!

What Takei said was beyond pitiful, and it goes to show just how tolerant most on the Left truly are.


DC Bumps Its Minimum Wage To Highest In The Nation But Activists Still WANT MORE

District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser was proud to announce Wednesday the minimum-wage hike that took effect that day, though just across town activists were still fighting for more.

At $9.50, the District of Columbia minimum wage was already higher than any state in the nation before it rose to $10.50 Wednesday.

“Raising the minimum wage will give tens of thousands of Washingtonians a raise and boost the bottom lines of our local businesses,” Bowser said. “It’s good for workers, businesses and our economy,”


A Viewer Writes: WBOC Blatantly Aired Old Weather Report


I was getting my car serviced somewhere yesterday and WBOC was on in the waiting room. At 5pm Delmarvalife came on and was a repeat. But they didn't tell you that at the beginning. Inside this repeat was a weather report from Dan Satterfield talking about Hurricane Arthur. No it wasn't a recap, it was the actual weather report from the initial airing of this program a year ago. I can't believe WBOC didn't edit this part out, there was actual people in the waiting room listening to what he was saying. They blatantly passed along wrong information, which I believe they should be held accountable for.

Fourth of July: Top holiday for pets to get lost

WASHINGTON (WJLA/ AP) – Flashing lights and loud booms may be exciting for some during the Fourth of July weekend, but for pets, it can be a nightmare.

The unfamiliar noise, rush of bright lights, swarms of people, strange smells and sometimes firework debris falling, can prove to be too much for your beloved pet, sending them leaping over, through or under the fence.

More pets go missing during the Fourth of July weekend than any other time of the year, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

“Every year we see several more pets get loose and run the neighborhoods during the Fourth of July weekend,” Scott Giacoppo, chief of field’s services for Washington Humane Society, told WJLA in an interview.


Statement from Governor Larry Hogan on the Fourth of July

ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today released the following statement:

“As Americans join together this Fourth of July to recognize the birth of our nation and celebrate our liberty, it is important to remember and honor the courageous men and women of the armed forces who continue to sacrifice so much to ensure our country remains free. On behalf of all Marylanders, I thank them, as well as their families, for their commitment and bravery. Maryland has a very special place in the founding and history of our great nation, and I couldn't be prouder to be governor of the Free State. The First Lady and I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday.”

Backing Into Your Own Driveway Could Cost You In This Florida City

For those who prefer to back vehicles into their driveways, a proposal pending before City Council would make it illegal to park their cars that way unless their license plate information is clearly visible from the street.

The proposed bill is aimed at cracking down on the visual blight that occurs when vehicle owners store cars that don’t work on their property.

Proponents say it’s needed because city code enforcement inspectors face problems cracking down on abandoned vehicles because they need to get the license plate information in order to write a citation. If they cannot see the tags from the street because the car is backed in, they cannot go onto private property to get a closer look at the front of the vehicle.

Kentucky social worker fears for job after helping child no longer assigned to her

A Kentucky social worker fears she could lose her job just for visiting a child she feared was being abused - after she had been reassigned from the case.

Karey Cooper told she received calls and emails in April from the relatives of a 7-year-old girl alerting her that the girl was being abused at home. Cooper, who had previously worked on the case, went to check on the girl at school, and found her hungry and disheveled. The girl told Cooper she often was not fed meals and did not see her therapist required by a court mandate

"She had not eaten since dinner the night before," Cooper said. "The [school] staff got her a tray together of food and while she ate I brushed the knots out of her hair and put her hair up into a pony tail."


Rutherford steps in for Hogan at MML, touts impact so far

OCEAN CITY — When Lt. Gov. Boyd Rutherford took the stage to address the Maryland Municipal League on Tuesday night, he said he was there as a “backup” to Gov. Larry Hogan.

Originally scheduled to speak with the state’s municipal leaders, the governor had to cancel his appearance after announcing that he was diagnosed with stage 3 non-Hodgkin lymphoma, a lymphatic system cancer, last week. On Wednesday, Hogan announced that he completed a five-day, 24-hour chemotherapy treatment and was back at work in Annapolis on Thursday.

Rutherford said that in talking with Hogan on the phone this week, the governor remained in “great spirits.”


Funny: "I Told You Not To Do That!"

Well, she told him not to do that! lol

Another thing of the past is the “art of the thumb”. In the 1950’s, it was not uncommon to see many guys standing alongside the road with their thumb out, hoping to get a ride by some passing car. The practice had many advantages for both parties. The driver of the car had company on a possibly long trip, and the rider got to where he wanted to go at no expense to him. The majority of riders in those days were sailors from Norfolk. They didn’t make a lot of money, and a free ride was appreciated. Most of them didn’t have to wait long before some car would stop and pick them up.

One thing you never saw was a woman or girl hitchhiking. They just didn’t do it, at least, not around here. That all changed in the 1960’s when the “hippie” movement swept the country, and girls became more a part of mainstream culture. Nowadays, the dangers of anyone being on the highway alone are enough to keep people from seeking the benefit of a free ride.

The practice had pretty well stopped by the 1970’s. It seemed that even the poorest of the poor had a car, or knew somebody who did, and didn’t need to seek a free ride. The idea of picking up some stranger by the side of the road is so foreign today. The sailors of yesterday were always clean-cut-looking young men, and you never had any fear that something bad would happen. Their conversation was always positive, and they were more than glad to share their experiences with you. And the company and conversation on a trip helped to pass the time away.

The occasional hitchhiker of today does not instill in you a great sense of safety to your well-being. So, most of them get passed by. Besides, who wants to take a chance that you are picking up some fugitive or crazy that will add grief to your life.

Along with the steady prospects along Route 13, there was always the road to Ocean City. It was always full of young people trying to get to the ocean. Even kids from Salisbury would hitch toOcean City without a dime in their pocket. They seemed to think it was exciting to do it. Once they got to Ocean City, they would beg for quarters to subsist. This practice was utilized by kids that were more affluent and could easily afford to do things differently. But they thought it was exciting to experience how the “other half” lived. I could never see it myself mainly, because I never liked being dirty – or broke.

Times change, as we all have witnessed. Hitchhiking now has developed into a fine art. Generally, the truck stops are the best place to get a ride. Befriending a trucker can lead to a ride to some far-off destination, and they are usually good company. Some of them are glad for the chance to not have to travel alone. It does take a certain amount of desperation to entrust your life with a perfect stranger though.


Can you guess which state in the union holds the American flag the highest? Quirky real-estate company Movoto ranked the most to least patriotic states in the U.S.A. according to data pulled from the 2012 U.S. Census, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Google Trends, Facebook, and Wikipedia.

The criteria for indicating the level of patriotism within a state population consisted of:
-National Historic Landmarks per Capita
-Veterans per Capita
-Money Spent to Fund Veterans
-Percent of Residents That Voted in the Last Presidential Election
-People Who Google For American Flags to buy
-People Who List America as an Interest on Facebook

How long will the Chesapeake Bay be a great place to fish?

BALTIMORE - A little bit back, I wrote about the Upper Chesapeake Bay making Bassmaster’s 100 Best Bass Lakes . The Upper Bay snatched spot 57 on the list, its highest ranking since the magazine started its rankings in 2012.

What I didn’t write about is something that gives me pause and makes me wonder how long the Bay will remain on the list. One of the criteria used in creating the list is the health of the fishery. Right now, that part of the Bay is in good shape.

The problem though, lies upstream or in this case, up river. The Susquehanna River made Bassmaster’s initial list of 100 Best Bass Lakes back in 2012. Since then, it’s been a no show. The folks who live along and fish the river north of the Mason Dixon Line will tell you it’s not what it used to be.
