A dazzlingly beautiful woman. Voluptuous - - but with a tiny waist - - and bursting with good health. If God ever decided to create the perfect-looking woman - - He would not do much better than Raquel. RIP.

The "One Million BC" poster is the greatest kid's pinup of all time. Raquel not only looked good, she could actually act. Remember the shite storm that arose when she and Jim Brown swapped spit in "100 Rifles" - that was 1969. This happened before Kirk and Uhuru locked lips. She will definitely be remembered and missed dearly. RIP Raquel.

I saw her at the Bob Hope show Dec 26, 1967 at Phu Cat Air Base Vietnam. When she came out on the stage in her blue and white knit micro mini dress all you heard was 10,000 GIs all sucking wind at the same time as she took our combined breaths away. Rest in Peace.

I always thought she came across as a very intelligent classy woman. She seemed to look so gorgeous even in late 70’s because of good health and fitness NOT plastic surgery. I do know she was exceedingly generous to a number of organizations that provided wigs to cancer survivor ladies. I read about that and she did it over a good many years. God bless her and her family as they grieve Miss Welch’s passing.

She even co-starred in arguably one of the Best Movies of all time, with three academy award winning actors...not sure she even got a credit. God broke the mold...but she still set a standard that spans 4 generations, any woman that looks even REMOTELY like her is universally considered gorgeous. Mrs Trump is a good example.

I once told my girlfriend that if Raquel Welch called me to come fetch her, I'd be out the door directly. A few years later, she married me anyway, in spite of my playful but enthusiastic admonishment. But she never forgot my warning but like most secure women, she liked Raquel, too, and appeared genuinely sad today as she broke the news to me.

My older cousin who was a teen when I was a grade schooler had 3 posters on the back of his door of three of the most beautiful women I’d ever seen. Farrah Fawcett-Majors, Ann Margaret and Raquel Welch. Out of the 3 Raquel to me was just beautiful. On my first Naval deployment to the Mediterranean the movie guys played One Million BC and I was just captivated from who Raquel not only was train stopping gorgeous but could act. RIP beautiful lady. My dad who is also a big fan said that son God broke the mold we he created Raquel Welch. I agree.

A federal appeals judge appointed by Donald Trump has demanded an apology from Stanford Law School after he was invited to speak, only to be berated by a pious dean while woke students shouted abuse at him. Judge Kyle Duncan, from the fifth circuit of appeals, was ambushed by associate dean of equity, diversity and inclusion Tirien Steinbach during a discussion Thursday night. But she then launched into an impassioned six minute speech - which she had written down - condemning his life's work. Steinbach - a former ACLU lawyer who previously defended free speech - initially claimed Duncan had a right to express his views.

A father from New Hampshire who had been banned from setting foot on the grounds of an elementary school showed up at a board meeting dressed as Julius Caesar to argue how the school district was 'facilitating gender confusion' because the school employs an male art teacher who wears women's clothes. Guglielmo's claims are based around allowing art teacher, Silas Allard to continue to teach as the school. The teacher, who identifies as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, typically dresses in women's clothing during the school day. He also alleged that he Allard had been posting inappropriate material on social media.

It’s ’23 skidoo. New York City cops are resigning at a record-breaking pace this year as the NYPD’s alarming exodus continues, according to new data obtained by The Post. “The NYPD staffing emergency is approaching the point of no return,” said Police Benevolent Association President Patrick Lynch. The shocking stats show 239 officers tapped out in January and February, a 36% spike from the 176 who fled in the same period last year and a disturbing 117% jump from the 110 in 2021, NYPD pension data show. That’s the highest number of resignations for the first two months of a year since 250 members quit in 2007

On Thursday, the Republican National Committee and the Vermont Republican Party announced they are suing the city of Winooski, Vermont for allowing noncitizens to vote in school board elections and on education budget referendums. Two concerned Winooski residents are also a part of the lawsuit. The lawsuit comes after the Vermont Supreme Court ruled against the RNC’s previous lawsuit asking judges to find noncitizen voting unconstitutional. While the court argued the Vermont Constitution did not categorically bar noncitizen residents from voting in municipal elections, it did find that votes with statewide implications would require United States citizenship, an RNC spokeswoman told The Federalist.

Kamala Harris's verbal utterances are bizarre, repetitive, and often not completed. (snip) Aphasics may do this to hide the fact that they can literally not hold onto the meaning of their narrative, to carry it to completion. So, they make up an ending to the story and then perhaps flip into a semantically weird ending. Harris often simply repeats her first sentence. This is not planned for a rational purpose, and she often solves her semantic confusion by bursting out in stereotypical laughter, with gestures, to encourage her listeners to think she just did a funny.

America’s top medical schools, worried they have too few minority students, are doing something about it. They are lowering academic standards for admission and trying to hide the evidence. Columbia, Harvard, the University of Chicago, Stanford, Mount Sinai, and the University of Pennsylvania have already done so. The list already tops forty, and more are sure to follow. Of course, the universities won’t admit what they are doing – and certainly not why. All they will say is that their new standards add “equity” and “lived experience.” Unfortunately, adding those factors inevitably lessens the weight given to others.
Maryland Democrat proposes law barring

A Democratic delegate proposed a law in Maryland that would bar anyone under 25 years of age from being charged with felony murder. Delegate Charlotte Crutchfield, a Democrat, made the proposition through the Youth Accountability and Safety Act, House Bill 1180, local news outlet WBFF reported. A defendant in Maryland can be charged with felony murder if the person commits a murder during a felony crime, such as robbery. Crutchfield and supporters of the bill say that the brain is not fully developed before age 25, so issuing so harsh a sentence is unfair.
