    You might think that this is grotesque. I certainly think it is grotesque. But should we be so judgemental about the unorthodox connubial arrangements of Anna and Lucy Decinque, 31-year-old identical twins who are sharing a bed with their 32-year-old electrical mechanic boyfriend Ben Byrne? The trio have lived together for the last four years in Perth, Western Australia, with the girlsí mother. The girls are inseparable, so much so that they have spent A$240,000 on various cosmetic improvements to look even more alike. They imitate each other and share everything. Even their boyfriend. When Anna and Lucy appeared on...

    When you were a rowdy teen, your parents were the Establishment. Now that you're a parent, what are you? The anti-establishment, cool parent? Not likely. Rather, you're a grownup who tries to keep the peace in your discordant household; who tries to negotiate among self-interested, imperfect family members who have competing goods and goals; and who tries to instill a long-range vision for the future in your desire-ridden family who wants instant self-gratification.

    As the Obamas begin their final year in the White House, a new movie debuting at the Sundance Film Festival aims to tell the First Family’s origin story, with a focus on their first date on the south side of Chicago. Richard Tanne, an actor and first-time feature director, conceived of the idea for Southside With You back during Barack Obama’s first campaign for president, when the then-senator from Illinois didn’t look much older than the 25-year-old who convinced Michelle Robinson to join him for a long afternoon in the summer of 1989 (watch an exclusive clip above). The years...

    The House's highest-ranking Republican woman said Thursday South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley should be judged on her abilities, not her looks, dismissing a remark by fellow Republican Rep. Steve King. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, who is fourth in leadership as the chair of the Republican Conference, was asked about King's comment to The Associated Press that Haley wasn't a "principled conservative" in the GOP, but "I think she's beautiful so I'd be happy if she's the face of the party."

    Full Title: Why Kim Davisís refusal to issue same-sex marriage licenses is legally different from a Ďsanctuary cityísí refusal to cooperate with federal immigration law Many commentators have sought to draw an equivalence between Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davisís refusal to issue same-sex marriage licenses, in defiance of a federal court order, and the decision of so-called ďsanctuary citiesĒ to refuse to enforce federal immigration laws. Yet as a legal matter, the questions presented by the two scenarios are quite distinct. Put directly, Kim Davis is acting in defiance of applicable federal law; sanctuary cities are not ó and...

The couple of more than 50 years registered as domestic partners in 1994, but were told after moving from New York City to Pennsylvania that ďhell would freeze over before Pennsylvania approves same sex marriage.Ē Since they needed to do estate planning, a lawyer advised them that the only way to become legally related was through adoption. This year, however, a federal district court declared the stateís same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional, so the couple petitioned to...

"American Exceptionalism blinds those who share its gaze to uncomfortable facts and truths about their own country," wrote DeVega. Adding that just like their Islamic cohorts, "white lynchers" practiced their own "unique cultural ritual" that was just as "gruesome" and "medieval" as ISIS "for almost a century."

    In early December, President Barack Obama announced the restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba after more than five decades of a misguided policy which my uncle, John F. Kennedy, and my father, Robert F. Kennedy, had been responsible for enforcing after the U.S. embargo against the country was first implemented in October 1960 by the Eisenhower administration. The move has raised hopes in many quarters Ė not only in the United States but around the world Ė that the embargo itself is now destined to disappear. This does not detract from the fact that Cuba is still a dictatorship. The...

The 30-minute special aired on Monday, December 29 and while it included numerous scenes, one featuring Matt Lauer and his female colleagues was the most bizarre. During a scene in which Lauer was having his pants ironed by an NBC staffer, the NBC anchor turned to Savannah Guthrie, Natalie Morales, Jenna Bush Hager and Tamron...

    Americans received a special Christmas present from the White House: a two-for-one package. Barack Obamaís weekly message also featured a message from his wife and even took the time to mention Jesus, despite the fact that the Obamas have traditionally eschewed going to church on Christmas. By way of contrast, as Mark Knoller of CBS News noted at the end of 2013, George W. Bush attended church 120 times during his eight-year tenure; Obama had attended church a grand total of 18 times in his first five years. Ronald Reagan did not visit church on Christmas, but he offered a...

Cats may take away your cushion, but they'll give it back to you with a gentle push. 3. Cats give you attention and sympathy when you're sick. 4. Females are treated with importance in the...

    As we celebrate the Fourth of July, who can argue that our democracy is working the way the Founders intended? And who can deny that most of the blame for dysfunction must fall to the Republican Party? George Washington distrusted all political parties. He warned in his farewell address that, as they alternated power, parties would act in ďthe spirit of revengeĒ ó rather than, presumably, in the best interests of the nation. The ďdisorders and miseriesĒ that resulted, Washington feared, would inevitably threaten democracy. Whatever the motivation, Republicans have paralyzed our government in a way that would have shocked...

    In its decision Monday in the Hobby Lobby case, the conservative Supreme Court majority that upheld corporations' religious objections to birth control spends an inordinate amount of time defending itself from the reasoning and wrath of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dissent. Justice Samuel Alito, whose name is on the decision, alludes no fewer than 24 times to the "principal dissent," which Ginsburg wrote for the four-member minority. Plainly, he felt Ginsburg's powerful intellect breathing down his neck as he tried to find a path to upholding the Hobby Lobby parties' attack on women's rights without expanding corporate "personhood" too much....

    President Obamaís instincts about Iraq and Syria have been sound from the beginning: Greater U.S. engagement probably cannot make things better but certainly can make them worse, both for the people of the region and for our national interests. Obamaís only mistake was to buy, for a time, the notion that Bushís troop surge had miraculously healed ancient divisions and made the dream of a pluralist democracy still possible. There are aspects of Obamaís foreign policy that I question. His heavy reliance on drone strikes may create as many terrorists as it eliminates. He should have realized that the National...

"With the upcoming presidential election, there's a lot of interest in Eric Cantor serving as national chairman of the RNC," Steele said Saturday on MSNBC's "Up With Steve Kornacki.""In fact I think he'd be interesting because he started dialogues on poverty and some other issues that were sort of outside of what Republicans have traditionally talked about. So he could bring a very interesting voice into that space," he said. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)

    All I want for Christmas is for black holocaust deniers to eat the crap that comes out of their mouths, Sarah Palin for example. When the acclaimed journalist Martin Bashir was a sports reporter on "The Voice" newspaper 25 years ago, neither I nor any of his colleagues could have tipped him to be one of the most celebrated TV correspondents of his generation. In fact, he was a bit of a tasty geezer in those days with a broad cockney accent that belies his current clipped vowels. All that changed when a certain princess called up the Panorama programme...

Graham, who has been outspoken in his support of U.S. action in Syria, said the president may have changed a few minds in Congress with the address from the White House. ďI think he probably stopped some Democratic bleeding,Ē Graham said.
