    At least eight people were killed and 38 injured Sunday when a tour bus careened out of control while traveling down a Southern California mountain road, struck a car, flipped and plowed into a pickup truck, authorities said. The accident occurred around 6:30 p.m. about 80 miles east of Los Angeles and left State Route 38 littered with debris, the bus sideways across the two lanes and its front end crushed. Emergency crews worked to free passengers who were trapped in the bus, which was returning to Tijuana, Mexico, California Highway Patrol spokesman

    Difficulty in getting change in our country is an ongoing source of frustration. Particularly when we have huge problems facing us as we do today. But the founders knew what they were doing setting up the checks and balances of our constitutional republic. The delicate arrangement we call freedom should never submit with ease to a charismatic demagogue or to an emotion filled crisis. The current push for gun control is case and point. It is at a time like this that we should be grateful that changing our laws is hard to do. Every normal and decent American wants...

  • Amnesty = EXTINCTION for GOP [GOP Going Out of Business]

    The American Thinker ^ | February 4, 2013 | Jonathon Moseley
    On January 28, 2013, a group of Republicans in Congress decided to close down the Republican Party. Their "going out of business sale" involves converting an estimated 12 to 20 million trespassing illegal aliens into solidly-Democrat voters. Republicans will ensure Democrat control of Congress and the White House with millions of new voters for generations to come. Will there really be 12 to 20 million new Democrat voters? Have you heard of "chain migration?" Each new citizen can petition to bring their immediate and extended family with him. So we are talking about perhaps an eventual 40 million new Democrat...
  • Mika: Wayne LaPierre's 'Stupid' Arguments 'Something Sarah Palin Would Say'

    Sarah Palin's profile might not be as high as it was a few years ago, but she apparently still serves as a convenient punching bag for the left. On today's Morning Joe, as Joe Scarborough railed against the allegedly "stupid" arguments NRA leader Wayne LaPierre made on Fox News Sunday yesterday, Mika Brzezinski muttered "something Sarah Palin would say." Consider that Palin had been in no way quoted, nor had her position on gun control been discussed. This was nothing more than a gratuitious shot at Palin, obviously still a bogeyman for the MSM.

    Our major public policies are based on the assumption that America will continue to enjoy growth. Economic growth and population growth. Through most of our history, this assumption has proved to be correct. These days, not so much. Last week, the Commerce Department announced that the gross domestic product shrunk by 0.1 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. And the Census Bureau reported that the U.S. birth rate in 2011 was 63.2 per 1,000 women age 15 to 44, the lowest ever recorded. Slow economic growth and low population growth threaten to undermine entitlement programs like Social Security and...

    Ok, I know all the downfalls of cosigning, but I'm willing to take the chance because it's such a good deal. I wouldn't want to make the payments but if it came to that I could. Relative has $40,000 down to purchase a house that is a great deal at $105,000. I've known the people that lived their for years, their upkeep of the house is immaculate. They need to move out of state quickly for a job, hence the low cost. Problem is relative has between a 575-606 credit score! This from "youthful indiscretions" over 5 years ago. This...
  • The half-million-dollar TV (152 inch screen)

    If that 55-inch TV set you bought last year suddenly doesn’t measure up to your game-day fantasies, consider this Super Bowl-size alternative: A 152-inch one, yours for a cool half-million. That’s the price tag on Panasonic’s model TH-152UX1, billed as the “world’s largest, 4K2K plasma display” (we’ll get to that 4K2K part in a minute). The set is indeed a massive one — equivalent to nine 50-inch screens and weighing in at a whopping 1,272 pounds. (For one installation at a restaurant, a forklift was used to put the TV in place.) But Panasonic says it’s not just about size:...

    Reaganite Republican ^ | 04 February 2013 | Reaganite Republican
    Discredited political consultant, blathering TV talking head, and big-bux fundraiser/PAC-man Karl Rove was once hailed by George W Bush as 'The Architect' in the wake of the 2004 campaign victory he had engineered. In retrospect, we'd probably have been better off in the long-term letting John Kerry try and deal with the earthshaking real estate collapse his Dems' own affirmative-action housing initiatives were soon to bring us. Instead, Rove -as White House Senior Adviser and Deputy Chief-of-Staff- resided over a Bush 2nd-term popularity dive so steep and so politically damaging to the GOP brand that the United States seems to have shifted...

    Sheikh Fayhan al-Ghamdi, an Islamic television preacher in Saudi Arabia, beat Lama, his 5-year-old daughter to death during a custodial visit. Saudi police had found the 5-year-old wandering the streets, she was taken to the hospital and placed in intensive care. The side of her head had been mashed in, her back was broken, she had a skull fracture, bleeding in the head, a broken left hand, bruises all over her body, and burns that apparently came from an iron. One of her fingernails had been pulled out. There were signs that she had been sexually assaulted in various ways...

    The body of a man killed in battle found beneath a social services office car park in Leicester is that of Richard III, DNA analysis confirmed today. Dr Turi King of the University of Leicester said that there was a DNA match between the maternal line of a descendant of the family of Richard III and the remains found beneath Grey Friars car park. Lead researcher Dr Richard Buckley added: 'It is the academic conclusion of the University of Leicester that beyond reasonable doubt the remains found in Leicester are that of Richard III, the last Plantagenet king of England.'...

    Russia Today correspondent Abby Martin accused Israel on Saturday of using “Hitler’s methods” against the Palestinian population in order to maintain a “Jewish majority” in the country. Martin, a vehemently anti-Israel correspondent for the Russian state-funded channel, alleged that "Israel is the only country in the world that was paved for a specific group of people that experienced such horrific discrimination and genocide, and for that same group of people to now use Hitler's methods against another minority to maintain a Jewish majority, is insane." The Israeli government's "word just doesn't cut it," she said, asserting the part that "irks"...

    Kristin Chenoweth says she was the victim of a screaming, angry gate agent who bullied her and embarrassed her when she tried to board an American Airlines flight with her emotional support dog ... and now the airline is begging for her forgiveness. TMZ has learned, the altercation went down this week as Kristin boarded a flight from Dallas to L.A.. We're told Kristin had her emotional support dog in tow -- as she always does -- when she was confronted by a gate agent supervisor who claimed Kristin didn't have the proper paperwork to bring the dog on board.

    When liberals tell you they support another expansion of federal power at the expense of personal liberty you should ask them how'd they feel if President Palin and Majority Leader Cruz and Speaker Ryan had that power. Do they really want Palin and Cruz and Ryan to control their healthcare or pensions? Then, while their stammering at the prospect of Palin signing 23 PRO-GUN executive orders or 23 PRO-LIFE executive orders, ask them why they think that giving career politicians and bureaucrats more money and more influence over the lives of ordinary people will improve things for the ordinary people....

    "Sarah Palin has leveraged her brand well since exploding on the national scene in 2008, but since she recently lost her bully pulpit at Fox News, she may need to make another national run for office to keep the Sarah Palin brand viable," said political pundit William S. Bike. Bike is the author of the book Winning Political Campaigns: A Comprehensive Guide to Electoral Success. "Palin still will make money giving speeches to Republican and conservative organizations, but without the national stage that her Fox News job provided, she's going to start fading from public consciousness," Bike said. "To keep...

    Just got done watching Gangster Squad and it is a great movie. It takes some artistic license but clearly gives credit to Chief Parker for keeping the mob out of Los Angeles. I've lived in Los Angeles all my life as has my father - and he often has talked about how Chief Parker went Roman on the mafia in the 1950's in order to keep them out of Los Angeles. As a result, Los Angeles was considered off limits to the mob. The lack of corruption in Los Angeles from the 1950's on thru the 1980's was an important...
