Jackie Mason, a rabbi-turned-jokester whose feisty brand of standup comedy got laughs from nightclubs in the Catskills to West Coast talk shows and Broadway stages, has died.

He was 93. Mason died Saturday in Manhattan, the celebrity lawyer Raul Felder told The Associated Press.

Mason started in show business as a social director at a resort in the Catskills. He was the guy who got everybody up to play Simon Says, quiz games, or shuffleboard.

He told jokes, too. After one season, he was playing clubs throughout the Catskills for better money.

That eventually took him to Steve Allen and Ed Sullivan's shows.

Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., warned that with rises in violent crime in cities across the country, there is one thing that lawmakers cannot do if they hope to pass effective police reform.

This fellow redefined "mind-blowing sex" after he suffered a life-threatening stroke while repeatedly masturbating. Now, medical experts are saying he’s lucky he escaped the ultimate unhappy ending.

The unnamed "51-year-old right-handed man" from Japan admittedly enjoyed pleasuring himself several times a day, according to the new case study published in the medical Journal of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases.

However, one explosive self-love session went awry when, after climaxing, the serial stroker was struck down by "thunderclap" headaches and severe vomiting.

Unnerved by the unsexy symptoms, the man rushed himself to Nagoya City University Hospital, where he was found to have low blood pressure and confusion — two telltale signs of a cerebrovascular accident, according to the medical case study.

Emergency medical technicians suspected he had a stroke while stroking — and a subsequent CT scan confirmed that the man had indeed suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH), a potentially fatal type of stroke sparked by ruptured blood vessels in the space surrounding the brain.

General Discussion Forum / James Brown's family settles estate

James Brown’s family has reached a settlement ending a 15-year battle over the late singer’s estate, an attorney involved in the mediation said Friday.

David Black, an attorney representing Brown estate, confirmed to The Associated Press that the agreement was reached July 9. Details of the settlement were not disclosed.

Legal wrangling over the assets of the "Godfather of Soul" has been ongoing since his death at the age of 73 on Christmas Day 2006.

The performer’s death touched off years of bizarre headlines, beginning with Tomi Rae Hynie — a former partner who claimed to be Brown's wife — being locked out of his 60-acre estate while photographers captured her sobbing and shaking its iron gates, begging to be let in.

Pick out an item from Ron Pomfrey’s sports collection.

Ron encyclopedic mind rattles off the tiniest of details related to the thousands of his relics he owns.

But one collectible sitting on his mantel has stumped Ron for 30 years -- a dented trophy nine decades old.

“This particular one I purchased at an antique shop. It was $100. That was a lot of money for me back then 30 years ago. Still is,” said Ron. “West Point Football League Championship. 1929.”

Ron posted a picture of the well-worn keepsake online this spring.

Tim Brown could not believe his eyes.

“What is unique in the picture is that every player in the picture is Black,” said Tim. “And West Point did not have Black players till 1966.”

The question of how the well-worn trophy found its way to an antique shop in Hanover may never be answered. But after 90+ years, the soldiers captured in black and white are finally getting some recognition.

“Knowing the circumstances behind winning that trophy adds to its value, and I’m not talking about monetary value. It just adds to the value. For me it is a magical trophy,” said Tim.



The team? West Point Buffalo Soldiers from the late 1920s -- some of whom played on that 1929 Championship team.

Segregation prevented these cavalrymen from playing with Cadets, so they formed their own team.

"This was an opportunity for them to be treated equally,” said Tim.

The calvary detachment played semi-pro and other college teams from New York to Philadelphia.

“They quickly became quite good,” said Tim.

Turns out, the horsemen were a force to be reckoned with.

“In late 20s and early 30s, according to local newspapers, they went undefeated. And went three years without being scored upon,” said Tim.

Their talents led them to a championship on the field and -- quite possibly -- respect off it.

The Trump administration also called it self the most transparent in history. Just show us where this question was answered by Kaylee McEnany last year?

If stark, clear reality is conflated with blaming the sick, then slap me silly.

You act like these folks weren't influenced and enabled every step of the way by policymakers, the mainstream media, and government agencies not to get vaccinated.

The pandemic in America was essentially declared no longer a threat, if not over, once the CDC issued its mask guidance for vaccinated people.

Now that s**t done hit the fan, we're blaming unvaccinated folks instead of the authorities.   



We disagree wholeheartedly on the assertion that the CDC declared the pandemic as being over. Please explain yourself on how you came to that conclusion.

I took it as a statement that if you were fully vaccinated, you no longer were required to wear a mask.  The unvaccinated over 2-3 years of age should be masked in public.

When the CDC issued its mask guidance in May, states, and cities, and major retailers almost immediately dropped mask mandates and COVID restrictions.

Once that happened, there was no reason for anyone to mask or get vaccinated, especially since Fauci and Walensky admitted folks were going to be on the "honor system" moving forward.

Why get vaccinated if there are no restrictions?

So, when & where, specifically did the CDC declare the pandemic as over, per your assertion?

May 13, 2021.

Go to the 6:40 mark of this video. The white woman anchor on CNN said that day, "It feels like it's over."



CNN = Clearly Not News

So much for transparency.

White House Press Secretary sparred with a reporter Friday over the issue of transparency on breakthrough coronavirus cases among White House staffers.


"This administration has long claimed that you’re trying to be the most transparent in history. If that's the case why don’t you just release the number of breakthrough cases that you have with vaccinated staffers," Psaki was asked.

Oh well.

Biden is getting people killed.

:clap: :bow:KUDOS!!! :bow::clap: A well deserved honor for a man that was a true hero.



Yet another example of a black man that showed unparalleled love and patriotism to his country despite his country not showing it toward him.  After his heroics, he was assigned to what all blacks in the Navy were, messman.

They were stewards.
