Morrissey cancels Jimmy Kimmel Live
appearance after duck hunting guest row

Telegraph [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/27/2013 7:16:52 AM

The Manchester-born singer, an outspoken animal rights campaigner, claimed he could not perform next to people who "amount to animal serial killers". The former Smiths frontman was due to appear on ABC´s late-night Jimmy Kimmel Live with the cast of US reality series Duck Dynasty. The show follows the lives of the Robertson family from Louisiana, whose family business makes equipment for duck-hunting. But feathers flew when Morrissey, 53, realised the identity of his fellow guests and immediately cancelled his appearance. "Morrissey is thankful for being invited to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live," his spokesman said today in a statement.

I confess I have no idea who Morrissey might be, but I know of and like the Robertson clan.

The left-wing Brits promote and cling to an ´80´s icon who tries to stay relevant by continuing the bad behavior that made him an icon. Nobody outside of Manchester cares.

Conservative vegetarian(they DO exist) will say, "I don´t like meat, so I won´t eat it".

Liberal vegetarian will say, "I don´t like meat, so NOBODY will eat it".

That, in a nutshell, sums up the differences between conservatives and liberals.

I am a conservative meat eater, but I won´t eat veal because I don´t like the way it is raised. But if you want to have a nice Osso Buco at the dinner table with me, it is none of my business.

It is one of the most enduring mysteries in sports: What happened to the long-lost signed confession of "Shoeless" Joe Jackson? The question has persisted since Jackson and seven other Chicago White Sox players were indicted on charges of fixing the 1919 World Series. The "Black Sox" were acquitted of those criminal charges, but became baseball´s most famous outlaws when they were banished from the sport by Major League Baseball´s first commissioner, Kenesaw Mountain Landis. Now, almost a century later, the quest to find the most captivating piece of evidence in the case has intensified, luring collectors and fans alike

As last winter’s congressional budget talks collapsed with the debt limit on the horizon, 27-year-old Luke Russert put the situation in perspective for MSNBC. “I have never seen anything like it in my three-and-a-half years on Capitol Hill,” he declared with conviction. It was a moment teed up perfectly for Washington’s many Russert-haters, who love to point both to Russert’s lack of experience and what they see as his accompanying lack of humility. Russert was famously hired fresh out of Boston College by NBC News the same summer that his father, “Meet the Press” legend Tim Russert, passed away suddenly—

One difference between professional athletes and fans, and between coaches and cheerleaders, is that while all of them see opportunities for their teams, the athletes and coaches are more likely to also see, and at least privately acknowledge, potential pitfalls. The 2014 Senate races, which are really a fight over who will hold the majority in the chamber, provide plenty of pitfalls for political professionals in both parties to worry about. On its face, the math certainly creates opportunities for Republicans. Twenty Democratic seats are up in 2014, compared with only 15

Suddenly it is imperative that Congress investigate details surrounding the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens. I´ve never felt that way before. But Drew Griffin´s scoop* changed my mind. A bit of background: On September 11, 2012, Stevens and three other Americans were killed at a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, touching off perhaps the strangest political controversy in recent years. (Snip)CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy agency´s Benghazi secrets from ever leaking out.

Asked to name his worst failing, Barack Obama surprised the adoring Barbara Walters with a one-word answer — “Laziness.” “You lazy?” she gasped. “You know, it’s interesting,” the president mused. “There’s a deep-down — underneath all the work I do — I think there’s laziness in me. It’s probably from, you know, growing up in Hawaii and it’s sunny outside, and sitting on a beach.” Notwithstanding the confidence he let slip to one of his admirers, in owning up to a deep-down laziness, Obama has always had a considerable talent for getting his own way —

The administration has popped the bubble of hope some small business had that switching to part-time staff would let them escape the high costs of Obamacare. The Small Business Administration on Thursday created a website to explain to businesses that the government will simply tally up the number of part-time employees firms have to determine if enough hours have been worked to essentially create a "full-time equivalent." Some smaller businesses had thought that if they could get under the 50 full-time employee cap that activates Obamacare by cutting full-time workers and hiring more part-time workers they would escape

I have been studying the transcript of the recent New York Times interview of President Barack Obama. It is a remarkable document—remarkable not for the facts it contains, but for the way it reveals the mentalities of the participants. Remarkable, too, in so far as the transcript allows a curious reader to see, in detail, how journalism is manufactured. Through a process of extraction, distillation, production, transportation, and marketing no less sophisticated than the global supply chain that brings Southeast Asian textiles to your neighborhood big-box store, a rambling, snobbish, and platitudinous discussion between three well-compensated Washingtonians

As the Weiner campaign itself bumps up the spectacle of a campaign in disarray, The New York Times has a look at just how involved the Clintons have been in helping — and protecting — Huma Abedin. Abedin, described in the paper as a "beloved surrogate daughter to the Clintons," took a lot of public heat recently for her decision to stand by her husband in a press conference addressing the new round of sexting allegations. It´s no secret that Hillary Clinton is something of a model for Abedin — both as a wife who stayed with her husband

The United States will temporarily shut down its embassies and consulates around the world Sunday, including those in Iraq, Afghanistan and Egypt, as a precautionary measure, the State Department said Thursday. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf did not say how long the international installations would stay closed -- only that the decision was taken “out of an abundance of caution and care for our employees and others who may be visiting.” Sunday is a normal workday in many Arab and Middle Eastern countries. Embassies in Europe and Latin America would be shuttered that day anyway.

American scientists claim the planet is undergoing one of the largest changes in climate in the past 65 million years. Climatologists at Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment have warned the likely rate of change over the next century will be at least 10 times quicker than any climate shift since the dinosaurs became extinct. If the trend continues at its current rapid pace, it will place significant stress on terrestrial ecosystems around the world, and many species will need to make behavioral, evolutionary or geographic adaptations to survive, they said.

If we learned anything about Barack Obama in his first term it is that when he starts repeating the same idea over and over, what´s on his mind is something else. The first term´s over-and-over subject was "the wealthiest 1%." Past some point, people wondered why he kept beating these half-dead horses. After the election, we knew. It was to propagandize the targeted voting base that would provide his 4% popular-vote margin of victory—very young voters and minorities. They believed. He won. The second-term over-and-over, elevated in his summer speech tour, is the shafting of the middle class. But

Government workers in the city of Seattle have been advised that the terms "citizen" and "brown bag" are potentially offensive and may no longer be used in official documents and discussions. KOMO-TV reports that the city´s Office of Civil Rights instructed city workers in a recent internal memo to avoid using the words because some may find them offensive. "Luckily, we´ve got options," Elliott Bronstein of the Office for Civil Rights wrote in the memo obtained by the station. "For ´citizens,´ how about ´residents?´"
