Billionaire media mogul Rupert Murdoch has revealed that he is engaged to new girlfriend Ann Lesley Smith, just six months after the pair first met - and less than a year after his divorce from fourth wife Jerry Hall was finalized. The 92-year-old shared the news in an interview with one of his own publications - the New York Post - this morning, revealing that he popped the question to Smith, 66, with an Asscher-cut diamond solitaire ring, which he 'personally selected'. Murdoch, who has been married four times previously, admitted that he was 'nervous' about popping the question yet again, confessing that he had 'dreaded falling in love' -

Sounds like a man who doesn't like to be alone. I live in a Senior Community and see this all the time. The Wife dies and the man (even in their 80's) is dating someone in 3 months! I don't think it has anything to do with Love. They are just Lonely! The Widow's, on the other hand, do not do the same. They just go on with their life, Alone. They have Lady Friends they shop with or play cards with or dine out with. Men don't seem to have a Similar kind of Support System! Of course, I've heard some Women say the Men are just looking for Someone to do their Laundry and Cook for them. I've also heard some Men say the Widows (who do date) are just looking for Someone who can Drive after Dark!

Love? Is that what the quaint old lechers are calling it now? Rupert gets a relatively young new toy and Leslie becomes rich beyond her wildest dreams in a few short years of geezer-pleasing. Sounds like a win-win to me. The Murdoch children must be ecstatic.

Well, it's like the story about the 90 year old man who weds a 20 year old girl. Friends ask him "Aren't you worried about dying on your wedding night?" And the old man says, "well, if she dies, she dies." I remember many years ago visiting a family friend and his wife who had retired to a nearby retirement park in the Texas RGV. They'd tell me how the old, single guys had it made. They mentioned one of the residents, a gentleman in his late 80s, half blind, deaf, missing teeth who would hang out around the pool and have women (widows in their 60s and 70s) on him like it was a beach movie from the 1960s.

American Tyranny? Perfectly Normal 0 replies
Posted by Imright 3/26/2023 6:42:16 PM Post Reply
Immediately after the 2016 election, the order went out: never let Trump's presidency be normalized." Huh? So someone controls what's normal and what's not? Actually, yes, the leftist insurgency can and does control what's normal, or at least what's perceived as normal. In fact, normalization is arguably the left's most powerful tool to control behavior,, herd the populace, even impose a tyrannical government. Normalization starts by saturating news, social media, and entertainment with a targeted subject. This first step is a form of Systematic Desensitization, where people repeatedly exposed to something abnormal, taboo, or even scary gradually relax and accept it.

Rather than destroying the equipment before leaving the country, Joe Biden surrendered nearly $85 billion worth of US military equipment to the Taliban.(Photo) In fact,Joe Biden left 300 times more guns than those passed to the Mexican cartels in Obama’s Fast and Furious program.

Biden’s tweet included a photo of himself shaking hands with a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officer, which was taken from his first and only trip to the border in El Paso, Texas, in January.

In a party-line 68-62 vote, the Minnesota House passed HF 146, which had been introduced by Rep. Leigh Finke of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party. Finke is the state's first transgender lawmaker. Democrats supporting the bill say the legislation will protect transgender people, their families and healthcare providers from facing legal repercussions for traveling to Minnesota to obtain cross-sex hormone prescriptions or sex-change procedures.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — A Yale University business student is proposing renaming Whitney Avenue in New Haven. Robert Lucas, an MBA student, said the legacy of Eli Whitney should be studied, not celebrated. “Things won’t change unless someone speaks up,” Lucas said. Lucas is set to graduate this spring. He’s spent his time in New Haven getting to know the history of the area. “Eli Whitney’s principal legacy was the invention of the cotton gin, and that led to the expansion of slavery,” Lucas said. He’s hoping to rename the stretch of Whitney Avenue that runs through New Haven.
