    PRICE, Carbon County — They're gearing up again at the state Department of Workforce Services to help scores of miners who received pink slips this week from UtahAmerican Energy Inc. "The coal mines are great jobs," said DWS workforce development specialist Nicole Steele. "But over the years, they do go up and down," Steele said. "It's kind of a roller coaster and everybody's aware of that." Roller coaster or not, the reason given Wednesday for the reduction of 102 jobs at the West Ridge Mine near East Carbon threw just about everyone for a loop. They were necessary because of...

    -snip- Luis, our previous caller, talked about Univision. For four years Univision did nothing but bash every potential Republican candidate. It didn't matter what they thought of Obama. The alternative was unacceptable. Now, this is why, by the way, I cringe when the Republicans and these brilliant consultants at the end of every election think that we have to become more like Democrats to win, which is essentially what they're saying. And look, I don't think I can ask this question too often. It is said now that the Republicans need to move significantly toward the direction of amnesty and...

    The Financial Markets Have Yet To Begin Factoring In What Lies Ahead The stock market may have found a temporary bottom as investors try to step away from the election and focus on the economy. The problem is that despite the election being over, the two dynamics are more interdependent now than they were before the Obama wins. The really big picture is that daily life and the financial markets are now becoming one single entity. The days where markets were focused on factoring in the future are now past, at least for now. And making matters worse, we don't...

    As they say in politics, timing is everything, and the shock resignation of David Petraeus as CIA director raises serious questions about whether this was genuinely a resignation caused by his affair with his biographer, or whether it was a hatchet job by Barack Obama's administration to prevent him giving evidence this Thursday to the Senate Intelligence Committee. The general's friends tell me that his sudden departure from Langley has nevertheless raised suspicions that his political enemies in the Obama administration – and there are many – used his dalliance to force him out of the CIA before he could...

    Freudian? In an interview with Arthur Kade, Paula Broadwell let slip: 'I'm not in love with David Petraeus' The woman who had an affair with David Petraeus denied she was in love with him in a bizarre interview she gave in the midst of their fling. Speaking in an interview while promoting her book in February, Paula Broadwell said without prompting: 'I am not in love with David Petraeus', in what was something of a Freudian slip. By that stage their affair was around five months having started when he became head of the CIA in September last year. It...

    Allen West’s campaign told Fox News this morning that there appears to be a willful attempt to steal the election. Apparently all early voting ballots were supposed to be recounted this weekend but according to Eric Shawn, the St. Lucie canvassing board only counted less than half. This is significant because West is only down by 1907 votes which is a .058% gap. An automatic recount is triggered at .05%. West’s campaign also cited the 140% turnout as troubling because it doesn’t match the number of people that showed up, saying that something is being hidden. Allen West himself told...

    Democracy Did Not Fail To you newspeople at CBS, CNN, ABC, NBC. To you journalists at the New York Times, the Washington Post, at newspapers all over America. You did it. You won. You were able to get Barack Obama his second term. You knew that if you told the American people the truth, they would not have reelected this man. Americans don't vote to reelect a commander-in-chief who abandons our soldiers and agents and ambassadors when they're under enemy fire. But you, confident that you are much wiser than the American people, you decided we had no reason to...

Tens of thousands have put their names to secession petitions in 20 states, asking that they peacefully become independent from the rest of the country. The documents have been lodged on a government website We The People - and Texas has almost enough...

    Full title: We petition the obama administration to: provide University graduates ability to trade their diplomas back for 100% tuition refunds. We petition the obama administration to: provide University graduates ability to trade their diplomas back for 100% tuition refunds. Because of the inability of recent college graduates to find gainful employment in order to repay their college debt, and since this college debt cannot be eliminated in bankruptcy, and most of the recent additions to the job market have been in service related industries, the Obama administration should take up the cause of reducing college debt and hold those...

A review of the DHS OIG press releases on its website, with the latest filing also being yesterday, also does not mention such a report. The second IG investigation...

    Residents in Missouri and nearly two dozen states have filed petitions on a White House website seeking approval for their state to "withdraw from the United States of America and create its own NEW government." The secession petitions were inspired by President Barack Obama's re-election to a second term. The petitions appear on a section of the White House website called "We the People" that invites users to submit or sign petitions about policy changes they would like to see. If a petition gets 25,000 signatures within a month the White House staff will "review it, ensure it's sent to...

    Children from wealthy families may more likely to have peanut allergies than those less well-off, a new study finds. In the study, children ages 1 to 9 from high-income families had higher rates of peanut allergies compared with children these ages from lower income families. The researchers analyzed information from 8,306 children and adultswhose blood samples were taken as part of a national health survey in 2005 to 2006. About 9 percent of participants had an elevated levels of antibodies to peanuts, indicating they had the potential to be allergic to peanuts. The results add support to the hygiene hypothesis,...
