  • 20 kids and counting! Michelle Duggar announces pregnancy

    Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar had an announcement to make on The Today Show this morning, which is that Michelle was pregnant with their 20th baby. I found myself getting prickly on their behalf watching the response and somewhat annoying questions by Ann Curry… What a witness this couple and family are. I just love them. See what I mean by this clip posted at People. And this clip just up on the TLC website… “We are so excited,” says Michelle, 45, who is now about 3-1/2 months into her pregnancy and due in April. “I feel good. I am...

"We discovered that a one-month-old baby was among the employees of one local government who is paid a salary," Gajam said. "What is even more astonishing is that it was indicated...

    Home prices are unlikely to recover before 2020 and mortgage defaults will persist for years, says a survey of bank risk managers out Friday. The survey conducted by the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association for FICO, found that 49 percent of respondents do not expect housing prices to rise back to 2007 levels for another nine years. Only 21 percent of respondents said they would. The findings, which authors called “a decidedly pessimistic outlook”, are a sharp reversal from cautious optimism the survey respondents expressed late last year and in early 2011. In addition, 73 percent of surveyed bankers say...

    During the recent GOP presidential debate, Texas Gov. Rick Perry said that Social Security is a "monstrous lie" and a "Ponzi scheme." More and more people are coming to see that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme, but is it a lie, as well? Let's look at it. Here's what the 1936 government pamphlet on Social Security said: "After the first 3 years — that is to say, beginning in 1940 — you will pay, and your employer will pay, 1.5 cents for each dollar you earn, up to $3,000 a year. ... Beginning in 1943, you will pay 2...

    Debt Reduction: The president happily announces "a very constructive meeting" with Republicans to resume debt-ceiling negotiations. Taxpayers should demand the one and only solution: huge spending cuts, period. Back during the Cold War, the left here and in Europe unsuccessfully peddled the notion of moral equivalency between the U.S. and the USSR, as if a regime that shot or starved tens of millions of its own people could be viewed through the same lens as the freest, most prosperous nation in history. On Thursday, the president presented himself and his fellow spendaholics as morally equivalent to the House's new Republican...

    One of my earliest memories of revulsion against war came from seeing a photograph from the First World War when I was a teenager. It was nothing gory. Just a picture of a military officer, in an impressive uniform, talking to a puzzled and forlorn-looking old peasant woman with a cloth wrapped around her head. He said simply: “Don’t you understand, madam? The village is not there any more.” To many such people of that era, the village was the only world they knew. And to say that it had been destroyed in the carnage of war was to say...

    Bureaucratic InsanityFrom the June 20, 2011, issue of NR. Some federal-budget cutters claim that we have already picked all the low-hanging fruit. Those of us who work in Washington know better, although it is not considered polite to say so. One counterexample is SAMHSA, a federal health agency distinguished by the fact that the health of its clients would improve if it went out of business.

    CHICAGO - A CHICAGO woman is accused of strapping her baby's corpse into a sling and taking him shopping after killing the three-month old in a drunken rage, local media reported on Wednesday.

Prosecutors told the Chicago Sun Times that Toyrianna Smith, 20, beat and suffocated her baby because he wouldn't stop crying on June 22. She had been drinking vodka at a friend's house...
