What's It Like to Win a Beauty Pageant? (Quora)
Answer by Bianca Peters, Miss Malibu 2010: After […] all the other runners-up [were named], I was crowned Miss Malibu 2010. All I really remember from those few minutes was seeing my grandma, who barely walks and barely smiles, desperately making her way to the stage with a grin from ear to ear. That little memory is the best way to describe what it felt like to win my first pageant.

Nikki Haley, Governor of South Carolina and the latest Repuke woman to draw the woodies of the horny old white guy reactionaries. She'll be out of sight in a few weeks after the S. Carolina Primary. I wonder if she could have gotten elected Governor if she ran with her birth name? Think not!

Lois Of The Racists said:
My name is Lois, and I am a racist. I didn't realize this before today, but now that I know that there have TWO REPUBLICAN United States Governors of Indian decent doing a shitty job of running SOUTHERN states in my beloved country, I might as well admit my guilt. In the past, I had always thought of the Indian people as having the same qualities of Gandhi. I embraced the stereotype of these people worshiping cows as symbol of motherhood, as being non-violent, yes, as being on the evolutionary high road. But governors Jindal and Haley prove you don't have to be truly "white" to be a lying, vicious, republican thief.

When the California Legislature passed the state's first comprehensive medical marijuana regulations in September, pot advocates hoped the move heralded a new era of trust in their often-tumultuous relationship with wary local officials and police.
Facing what appears to be a rapidly closing window for action, dozens of cities and counties from across California are racing to enact new bans on marijuana-growing. Some apply only to commercial cultivation, both indoor and outdoor, but many would also prohibit personal pot gardens that have been legal - or at least overlooked - for 19 years.
At issue is a paragraph in the 70-page framework approved in the closing hours of the legislative session that would give the state alone authority to license growers in jurisdictions that do not have laws on the books by March 1 specifically authorizing or outlawing cultivation.
The League of California Cities and the California Association of Police Chiefs, while supporting the fix, nonetheless have advised their members to enact cultivation bans ahead of the original cutoff date as a precaution to preserve local control.

A Pittsburgh man used his dying wish to make a political plea to his fellow Americans: don't vote for Donald Trump (R-Wichser).
According to the obituary published in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Jeffrey H. Cohen passed away unexpectedly at the age of 70. The obit is rife with quips and jokes, revealing that "He took pride in being the only Jewish cowboy that he knew of," and that his preeminent philosophy was "The meaning of life is OOPS!"
So it is perhaps fitting that the tribute finishes with the following sentiment:
"Jeffrey would ask that in lieu of flowers, please do not vote for Donald Trump."
The executive director of the embattled Thirty Meter Telescope said Friday he wants to move forward with the project but is waiting to hear from state agencies about how to proceed after the Hawaii Supreme Court invalidated a key construction permit.
The $1.4 billion project has been in limbo since April, when throngs of protesters opposed to building the telescope atop Mauna Kea- held sacred by many Native Hawaiians - blocked construction crews. Protesters showed up in force again in June during an attempt to resume construction. Last month, the state Supreme Court ruled that the state Board of Land and Natural Resources should not have issued the permit before a hearings officer reviewed a petition by a group challenging the project's approval. The court sent the matter back for a new contested case hearing.
Since then, telescope officials have been largely silent on what they planned to do next. But Ed Stone, the project's executive director, said telescope officials don't have enough information to decide.
State officials are not holding up the process, state Attorney General Doug Chin said in a statement. "On Dec. 29, the Supreme Court remanded the case to the circuit court to further remand to the Board of Land and Natural Resources so that a contested case hearing can be conducted," he said. "As of today, the circuit court has not remanded the case. BLNR cannot take action or provide instructions to anyone until this happens."

The festival takes place from 21 to 31 January.

Dozens of original objects and furnishings from the Kennedys' "Winter White House" Florida estate go under the hammer Saturday, according to the auctioneer.
Items up for grabs from the Palm Beach oceanside getaway include everything from a bed president John F. Kennedy slept in to the dining room table his family gathered around, Leslie Hindman Auctioneers said.
Although Kennedy's parents lived in the estate permanently, the former president would often visit the house where "significant presidential meetings and appointments took place," during his administration.
The 153 items that are up for auction were sold by the Kennedys in 1995 along with the house, which they owned for 62 years.
Gov. Jerry Brown has rejected parole for a third time for a follower of cult leader Charles Manson 46 years after a series of bloody murders rocked Southern California.
Bruce Davis was convicted of the 1969 slayings of musician Gary Hinman and stuntman Donald "Shorty" Shea. He was not involved in the more notorious killings of actress Sharon Tate and six others.
Brown said on Friday that the 73-year-old Davis remains a danger to public safety, saying in his decision that the "horror of the murders committed by the Manson Family in 1969 and the fear they instilled in the public will never be forgotten."
The governor said Davis spent years downplaying his role in the family.
Brown blocked Davis' parole twice before, most recently in 2014, and former Gov. Arnold $chwarzenegger (R-Philanderer) also previously opted to keep Davis imprisoned at California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo.

U.S. Republican front-runner Donald Trump (R-Wichser) expressed confidence on Saturday that he could push back attempts by his rivals to knock him off his top perch, saying he could stand in New York's Fifth Avenue "and shoot somebody" and not lose voters.
Trump and Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R-Pendejo), Trump's chief obstacle to a victory in Iowa's Feb. 1 caucuses, held competing rallies across the state while in New Hampshire, other candidates battled for votes in that state's Feb. 9 first-in-the-nation primary.
Trump, the New York billionaire and former reality TV star who has been virtually impervious to attacks from his opponents, pushed the limits of his political rhetoric again in Sioux Center, Iowa.
According to presidential candidate and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Pendejo), there's one thing that more important to him than the country he's running to lead: his God.
In a remarkable exchange in New Hampshire, Politico reports, Cruz told reporters "I'm a Christian first, American second, conservative third and Republican fourth."
Cruz, currently ranked second in GOP candidate polls according to RealClearPolitics, enjoys wide support among evangelical Christians in important, early-voting primary states like Iowa, where Cruz is locked in a tight race with current frontrunner Donald Trump. Cruz repeatedly accused Trump and his support of "more deal-making" and enjoying the support of unpopular "establishment" Republicans.
By proclaiming himself a Christian first and an American second, Cruz is professing higher loyalties than the United States - odd for a candidate who has repeatedly accused Muslims of doing much the same thing.

Lawyers for former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Pedophile) asked a federal judge on Friday to delay sentencing in his hush-money case because of his recent hospitalization for a stroke, as well as for spinal and blood infections - saying he has difficulty walking and will require at least several weeks of rehabilitation.
The Illinois Republican, who turned 74 this month, has been unable to prepare with his lawyers for his Feb. 29 sentencing because of his lingering health issues, according to his attorneys' three-page filing in U.S. District Court in Chicago. The document doesn't request a specific new date for sentencing but suggests that a status hearing be held on March 7.
Hastert was accused in May of evading banking regulations as part of a plan to pay $3.5 million in hush money to conceal "prior misconduct." The Associated Press and other media outlets, citing anonymous sources, have reported that Hastert wanted to hide claims that he sexually molested someone at least one student decades earlier.
The motion requesting the delay says Hastert was admitted to the hospital in the first week of November - just several days after he pleaded guilty to a felony count of evading bank reporting laws - and wasn't released until Jan. 15. It adds that Hastert needs up to six weeks of in-home care that will likely be followed by outpatient physical therapy.
Hastert was a little-known Illinois lawmaker whose reputation for congeniality helped him ascend the ranks of Congress to become the longest-serving Republican speaker in U.S. history. In January 1999, House Republicans voted for him to succeed Newt Gingrich (R-Philanderer), who had lost support because of ethics violations and the party's poor showing in the 1998 midterm election. He served as speaker from 1999 to 2007.
Charges have been dropped against six activists who were arrested during a protest in Ferguson, just as their trial was about to begin. The case was expected to include allegations of police brutality, claims of missing evidence and discussions about the shortcomings of body cameras.
The charges had included property damage, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct and third-degree assault. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Ferguson prosecutor Stephanie Karr dismissed the charges Thursday without explanation.
Later Thursday, the defendants filed a federal lawsuit alleging that Ferguson destroyed evidence and violated the constitution.
Also arrested at the February protest was independent filmmaker Christopher Phillips. His camera, valued at $20,000, was seized. When the device was returned, the connection pins on the memory card had been damaged, Phillips said.
Karr's notice that the charges were being dropped was handwritten, and it said the charges could be refiled.
