Roofers in Maine stop work
to respect national anthem, flag

Fox News, by Madeline Farber

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/16/2017 3:56:06 PM

Three Maine roofers put their hammers down and stood up to show respect for the national anthem on Saturday, in the process unknowingly posing for a photo that´s been used to symbolize one side of the contentious nationwide debate about "The Star-Spangled Banner." The roofers, who were working near Waterville High School’s football field, stood for the national anthem “even though they didn’t have to,” Michelle Lyons Cossar, the Old Town resident who snapped the photo, told Fox News on Monday. While Cossar was standing for the anthem prior to the start of Saturday’s game, she said she heard someone

Working on a Saturday, stopping to stand, face the flag and place their hands over their hearts while the anthem plays.

Exactly what #12 wrote.

"...one side of the contentious nationwide debate about the ´Star Spangled Banner´"? No, Ms. Farber, it´s not "one side" at all - as #12 wrote, it´s only a small percentage making all of the noise - there aren´t enough of them to form a "side".

Thank you from our hearts, Dwayne Harrison, Danny Thyng, and James Scruggs - you stood and respectfully represented the proud and patriotic majority of us.

Tesla said it would rather spend money on litigation and “fight to the ends of the Earth” than give in to what it called extortion and abuse of the legal system connected to a recent lawsuit alleging racism at the company’s factory in Fremont, Calif. Tesla earlier this week was hit by a class-action lawsuit by former worker Marcus Vaughn, calling the company a hotbed of racist behavior. That was the latest legal action involving allegations of racism at Tesla. In a blog post late Monday, Tesla sought to contest certain allegations in the lawsuit and said that it takes

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — A major blackout hit Puerto Rico´s most populated region on Wednesday just as the government announced it had met its goal of 50 percent power generation nearly two months after Hurricane Maria struck as a Category 4 storm. The Electric Power Authority said it dispatched crews to investigate why a key 230 kilovolt line that connects the island´s northern and southern regions had failed for the second time in a week. The blackout affected the capital of San Juan and nearby cities and towns along the U.S. territory´s north coast, provoking a groan from people

Appearing in a series of interviews for his new book, Biden is now not ruling out a run for the White House.One question: Why is this anything other than a joke?It´s one thing to be depressed and disappointed about Donald Trump´s victory, but have these people forgotten everything we learned from the 2016 election?Apparently so.

Texas woman Roslyn Corrigan claims that former President George H.W. Bush groped her when she was just 16 years old. According to Corrigan, the groping occurred in November of 2003 at an event in The Woodlands, Texas. This is the sixth woman to publicly accuse the 41st president of grabbing her butt without consent. Speaking to Time magazine, Corrigan, who is now in her early 30s, said, “My initial action was absolute horror. I was really, really confused. The first thing I did was look at my mom and, while he was still standing there, I didn’t say anything,” she

A teacher is facing disciplinary action at his school after he referred to a transgender pupil as a girl, although the student identifies as a boy. Joshua Sutcliffe, a Christian pastor from Oxford, admitted he said "Well done girls" when addressing a group including the student. He described it as a "slip of the tongue", but said he believed biological sex was defined at birth. The school said it would be "inappropriate" to comment. Mr Sutcliffe, who teaches children aged between 11 and 18, said the incident took place on 2 November. He said a week-long investigation found he had

For Democrats, signs everywhere suddenly look rosy. They won smashing victories last week in Virginia and other states. With voters giving the Trump presidency and the Republican-led Congress dismal grades, and the Democratic grass roots re-energized, hope is widespread for a takeover of the House of Representatives and a strong run in the Senate in the 2018 midterm elections. (Snip) What’s more, the electoral landscape is tilted against them for reasons besides gerrymandering. Liberal voters and racial minorities tend to be clustered in major cities and their suburbs, concentrating the Democratic base in a smaller number of congressional districts, even

RICHMOND, Va. — Unease over violent white nationalist rallies in Charlottesville this summer and President Donald Trump´s response loomed in the minds of many Virginia voters during Tuesday´s elections in which Democrats made significant gains, according to progressive advocacy groups and interviews with voters. The governor´s race was one of Virginia´s most racially charged in recent memory, and voters were peppered with ads that referenced the August violence.

Previously swept up and handed over to Catholic charity Caritas, the coins, which can add up to as much as a million euros a year, will now be claimed by Mayor Virginia Raggi for projects to be decided by a city hall working group, according to reports in the local media on Friday.

When it comes to holiday shopping sprees, Black Friday is no longer the prime event. A new analysis finds that more shoppers are choosing to spread out their holiday purchases rather than stick with the ritual of rising before dawn the morning after Thanksgiving in order to stand in line outside a store and then shop until they drop. During the week that includes Thanksgiving, 35% of shoppers say they intend to do most of their shopping on Black Friday this year, down from 59% in 2015, according to the analysis released Tuesday by consultancy PwC.

In the past few weeks, I´ve been a woman of split personalities.

I shared my stories. I brought other women together to share theirs. We were giddy at the catharsis. It felt like a sea change.

Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be “such an abuse of power” by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday. The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, “like some authoritarian regime.” Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton’s time as secretary of state. President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though

Jeff Sessions is a man in search of a banana peel. When he can’t find one to step on, he supplies his own. Sessions is not a bad man, but he is a bad attorney general, as he demonstrated again Tuesday. By writing to Republicans in Congress just hours before he was scheduled to testify that he was open to appointing a special prosecutor to examine former FBI Director James Comey’s handling of Hillary Clinton’s e-mail case and the notorious Uranium One deal, Sessions primed the pump for a really big show. Democrats arrived furious and Republicans gleefully expected an ah-ha moment. Both

When the Washington Post filed its story against Roy Moore last week, we took a cautious line, agreeing with Republican lawmakers who said “if true,” these charges disqualify the GOP´s nominee in Alabama’s special election for the Senate. We pressed Republicans to extract more information from Moore. Since then, plenty more information has emerged. Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, after getting Moore’s side of the story last week, withdrew his endorsement of the former judge. A former boyfriend of the chief Washington Post subject, who says Moore fondled her as a 14-year-old after flirting with her outside a custody hearing, corroborated the story. A

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told attendees at a Wall Street Journal event on Tuesday that if Judge Roy Moore wins the Alabama Senate race in December, he will face a Senate ethics committee investigation. McConnell argued, “I think it’s safe to say that if he were to be sworn in, he would immediately be in a process before the Senate Ethics Committee. He would be sworn in and be asked to testify under oath as well, and it would be a rather unusual beginning.” The Washington Post released an article last week that alleged that Moore engaged in sexual

If this warning is as reliable as the first notice these scientists issued in 1992, we have nothing to worry about.

The allegations by five women that Roy Moore pursued and sexually molested teenage girls while he was in his 30s are disgusting, and disqualify him to serve in the United States Senate. Conservatives should be outraged at Moore for his loathsome conduct. But they should also be outraged at the man who helped put Moore on the ballot and is in the process of destroying the Trump presidency: Stephen K. Bannon. If the man Trump supported in the primary, Sen. Luther Strange, were the Republican nominee today, the GOP would be cruising to an easy victory in the Dec. 12 special

President Barack Obama mingled with Democratic leadership and high-powered donors at a New York City mansion on Tuesday, while raising money for the cash-strapped political party. Democrats are entering the 2018 election cycle amid financial struggles, with many donors declining to give after the party´s devastating loss to Donald Trump in 2016. Even the fundraising event on Tuesday night, which benefited the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Senate Victory Fund, drew few attendees, according to photos captured exclusively by DailyMail.com.
