Miss Kansas is a deer hunting, tattoo
-wearing sergeant in the U.S. Army

Fox News, by Staff

Miss Kansas is not in Kansas anymore. And the Miss America pageant has never seen anyone like her. First off, Miss Kansas Theresa Vail is a sergeant in the U.S. Army, only the second contestant ever to be on active duty. "Nobody expects a soldier to be a beauty queen," Vail told People magazine. “But I´m all about breaking stereotypes." Second, Sgt. Vail has big tattoos. Two of them. One, the insignia for the U.S. Army Dental Corps, is on her left shoulder, while a massive version of the Serenity Prayer runs down her right side. And when she struts her stuff in

Good grief. (1) You don´t master opera singing in 48 hours, not by mimicking Pavarotti YouTubes and not even with talent and hard work. (2) You are not all about breaking stereotypes when you cover your body in graffiti (like millions of others who failed Aesthetics 101) and enter beauty contests.

Tattoos have a place...but that portion of the body should forever be hidden.

Oddly enough, this was going around this morning:

"Dear Mom and Dad: ...I´ve been finding real passion with Joan and she is so nice. I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercings, tattoos, her tight motorcycle clothes and because she is so much older than I am but it´s not only the passion, Dad, she´s pregnant.

Joan says that we are going to be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood, enough for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children."

Kansas should have told this broad to get lost.

FTA: "When she was told she wouldn’t be able to use archery as her talent, she had to pick another one and quick. She chose to sing opera. "I´d never sung opera in my life," Vail says. Forty-eight hours later she had mastered a Pavarotti piece she found on Youtube, and won the Miss Kansas talent competition."

Wow, that is quite an accomplishment!

While I´m glad she doesn´t fit the stereotype, I just don´t understand women who get tatted up. Scarring yourself for life because of a youthful fad doesn´t show much common sense. I didn´t find it attractive when I was younger, and definitely don´t now. Visible tattoos on women, especially large ones, reek of poor judgement.

Getting tattoos just reeks of bad judgement - traditionally it was a way to tell if someone had been in a biker gang or jail. It is not something I want to associate with beauty queens.

Suddenly some women are allowing the tattoo industry to run wild on their bodies. I agree with #6, #8, #11 and #13 above.

I observed a very nice looking young lady in the grocery store yesterday, she had tattoos all over one side of her upper body, and the clothing that she was wearing was obviously meant to maximize the exposure of her tattoos to public view in exhibitionist fashion.

What made Nevada rancher fight the feds?

Washington -- When the Bureau of Land Management retreated from a standoff with Cliven Bundy, a few hundred people traveled to his Nevada ranch to protest what they see as an overreach of the federal government. (Snip)Because of the cheap rent, some, including fellow cattlemen who don´t ranch on public lands, call public land ranchers "welfare ranchers" and have no sympathy for the Western lot. But Griggs said they don´t understand that ranching public land is "not a bargain." "On public lands, you might get kicked off at any moment for a turtle. That´s kind of the deal," he said.

The year that we were married, my husband and I were given a truly wonderful gift: a honeymoon safari to southern Africa. It was an amazing experience. We now have all the magical memories that one would hope to bring home from a safari: the fresh lion kill, the mother elephant tenderly caressing her baby, the warthog crashing through the undergrowth with a leopard in hot pursuit. I could go on (and on and on), but nothing’s more pretentious than regaling people with tales of your honeymoon safari, so I’ll just reiterate once more: completely fabulous. You meet a lot of

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
