    At first blush, the reaction to this Gallup poll is … so what? Barack Obama managed to get himself elected to a second term anyway, even with historically anemic approval numbers. But there’s more to this than just last November: President Barack Obama averaged 49.1% job approval during his first term in office, among the lowest for post-World War II presidents. Only Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford had lower job approval averages. Obama’s first-term average is most similar to Bill Clinton’s. Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, and Dwight Eisenhower were the most popular first-term presidents. Obama’s first-term approval average, like those...

  • Wanted: 'Adventurous woman' to give birth to Neanderthal man - ... seeks mother for cloned cave baby

    They're usually thought of as a brutish, primitive species. So what woman would want to give birth to a Neanderthal baby? Yet this incredible scenario is the plan of one of the world’s leading geneticists, who is seeking a volunteer to help bring man’s long-extinct close relative back to life. Professor George Church of Harvard Medical School believes he can reconstruct Neanderthal DNA and resurrect the species which became extinct 33,000 years ago. His scheme is reminiscent of Jurassic Park but, while in the film dinosaurs were created in a laboratory, Professor Church’s ambitious plan requires a human volunteer. He...

  • Cops Nab 5-Year-Old for Wearing Wrong Color Shoes to School

    In Mississippi, if kindergarteners violates the dress code or act out in class, they may end up in the back of a police car. A story about one five-year-old particularly stands out. The little boy was required to wear black shoes to school. Because he didn’t have black shoes, his mom used a marker to cover up his white and red sneakers. A bit of red and white were still noticeable, so the child was taken home by the cops. The child was escorted out of school so he and his mother would be taught a lesson.

    True story: I always ask patients how they are doing, or "What's new?" every time I walk in the treatment room. A standard response is, "Well, I checked the obituaries this morning, and I wasn't in there." One guy always said, "I'm vertical and taking nutrition." Another guy routinely says, "I'm looking down at the grass and not up at the roots." A couple months ago one little old lady deadpanned, "These are supposed to be my 'Golden Years.' The only thing golden about my 'Golden Years' is my pee." But this morning, I had a patient who said he...

    Friends of Ours ^ | 01/21/13 | Friends of Ours
    A recent series of lenient sentences against reputed wise guys, including several instances where the defendants received no hard time, illustrates the compelling need for federal legislation to mandate minimum prison terms in mob cases. The Mafia has been responsible for more crime than any other force in the United States, and yet too often the sentences against its players do not justly reflect the evil enterprise with which they cast their lot. Federal legislation already exists which provides for enhanced penalties for crimes committed by gangbangers, and this should be broadened to encompass mobsters and mandate minimum prison terms...

    Mr. President, please come to Chicago. In Washington on Wednesday, as you rolled out a slate of gun control measures quickly cobbled together in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, you said, "If there is even one thing we can do to reduce this violence, if there is even one life that can be saved, then we've got an obligation to try." If you believe those words, Mr. President, here is a heartfelt suggestion: Come back to your adopted hometown and personally host a summit that grapples seriously with the causes of — and crafts meaningful solutions to —...

    Again and again, we see all of the fallacies and delusions of Western "leaders" and the media elite crumble in the face of reality. Breaking news is a Canadian was in charge of the jihadist operations at the Algerian gas plant. How do we tell the players? How do we know which of our co-workers and neighbours aren't THEM? Anwar Awlaki, the imam to the 911 Muslim terrorists (who assisted in the purchase of their airplane tickets) was invited to dine and preach at the Pentagon. The global jihad transcends borders, nantionalities, race creed or colou. It is the ideology...

    For golf legend Phil Mickelson, the low 60s makes for a great score on the links — and a lousy tax rate in his home state of California. Mickelson said “drastic changes” are ahead for him due to federal and California state tax increases that have pushed his tax rate to what he figures adds up to “62, 63 percent.” The left-hander will talk more about his plans — possibly moving out of California or even retiring altogether — before his hometown Farmers Insurance Open, the San Diego-area event that begins Thursday at Torrey Pines.

    MOSCOW (AP) - Kissing his boyfriend during a protest in front of Russia's parliament earned Pavel Samburov 30 hours of detention and the equivalent of a $16 fine on a charge of "hooliganism." But if a bill that comes up for a first vote later this month becomes law, such a public kiss could be defined as illegal "homosexual propaganda" and bring a fine of up to $16,000. The legislation being pushed by the Kremlin and the Russian Orthodox Church would make it illegal nationwide to provide minors with information that is defined as "propaganda of sodomy, lesbianism, bisexuality and...

Sheikh Rahman's jihad was bring down the towers in 1993, in order to slaughter tens of thousands of Americans. There are whispers that Obama is negotiating behind the scenes with the Muslim Brotherhood to "transfer" (release) the Blind Sheikh to Egypt (like Scotland's release of the Lockerbie bomber to Libya, where he was summarily released.)

    What did the man who is president say last week? Barack Obama unleashed on the American people his list of 23 so-called “executive actions” that are supposed to make us a safer nation. In his dreams. And he did it using little children as props to milk the sympathies of the public. What made it worse is that the children were the survivors of the massacre at Sandy Elementary Hook School in Connecticut. Does anyone really believe all those little children, on their own accord, wrote letters to the president asking him to make children safe? Please. I know the...
