Good Morning!

A new American National Anthem?? Some are loving this, others...not so much. If you're not a Donald Trump fan then you probably won't. But that's what makes America great in the first place: the freedom to disagree with one another...often times over the most trivial of things!  

Check out what some are calling America's "new" National Anthem, called "Make America Great Again" 




Then, tell us what you think with our Poll Of The Day:


NOT for the faint of heart!  Not just this Ironman Competition (heavy exercise followed by chugging a 6-pack!), but the results as seen on a local TV report...and reporter!  

Again I stress...do not watch if you have a weak stomach:

An Oklahoma police officer responds to a child abuse case and knows right away that he is going to spend the rest of his life caring for the helpless victim.


When Officer Jody Thompson with the Porteau Police Department in Oklahoma went to help out on a child abuse case, he had no idea it would change his life forever. He found a severely abused eight year old boy named John and decided then and there he wanted to take care of him for the rest of his life.

So Thompson and his wife became foster parents for John and brought him home to live with their two children. Then they found out they were pregnant with another baby and their family grew again. They also learned John’s biological mother had given birth to a baby girl while she was in jail and they adopted both siblings.

Life is so much better for John now and their large family has helped him thrive and become a happy, straight A student. "We went through something bad, but we're not going to let it define who we are. We're not going to let this hold us back," says Thompson. "Always have compassion, you never know what you're going to walk into."

The good folks over at Oreos have outdone themselves once again with a brand-new mocha flavor that's available now. Cosmopolitan reports they're also testing out 12 other taste sensations like unicorn, salted caramel, popcorn and (wait for it...) avocado. But wait --there's more! The cookie giant is also flirting with the idea of Millennial Pink, Birthday Cake, Mermaid and seven other varieties of Oreo Chocolate Candy Bars

 The characters of "Sesame Street" perform “Sabotage.”

 




Man with marijuana in his underwear blames a recent change for the mix up: 

Tyce Fields isn't good at coming up with excuses. The 32-year-old, who had a violation of probation warrant out against him, has been arrested in Port St. Lucie, Florida after police smelled burning marijuana coming from his car. Once at the station, cops say they extracted a bag of weed from Fields’ “groin area.” According to Fields, "he didn't know the cannabis was on him because he recently changed underpants." It's unclear if pointed the blame at someone else. As it happens, the driver of the car Fields was in, 29-year-old Joshua Hargrove, also had pot on his person and now has to go to court as well.

  • UPDATE: Couple that attacked restaurant owner, daughter get arrested: Remember when we told you about Nathaniel Eric Smith and Latasha M. Smith? The couple who attacked a Baxley, Georgia restaurant owner and her teenager daughter? Well rest a bit easier, the Smiths are off the streets. The couple turned themselves in after everyone from local police to federal marshals got involved. Both Nathaniel and Latasha are facing felony charges stemming from the incident. Source: The Smoking Gun 
  • Fireworks cause two phone outages in nearby towns: It's best to leave the fireworks to the professionals, just ask the residents of Puyallup, Washington and the surrounding area. More than 10-thousand people were left without phone service after a blaze caused by fireworks melted fiber-optic cables. Soon after, a second fire believed to be caused by fireworks, damaged another fiber-optic line in the Seattle area. That outage knocked out phones and computers at about 300 state government sites and possibly other organizations. At this point it doesn't appear that any criminal charges have been fired.
