    NY Post ^ | 4/21/14 | Emily Smith
    NBC’s “Meet the Press” has fallen to such ratings lows that network brass ordered psychological research of the host David Gregory and his family, in a bid to make him more likable. Friends of Gregory and even his wife were interviewed by a psychologist commissioned by NBC to find out how the host of the flagship Sunday morning show might relate to audiences better. The Washington Post reported, “Last year, the network undertook an unusual assessment of the 43-year-old journalist, commissioning a psychological consultant to interview his friends and even his wife. “The idea, according to a network spokeswoman, Meghan...

    The United States was about to announce a deal that would put a stop to North Korea's uranium enrichment program when it was announced that the country's leader, Kim Jong Il, had died, a senior U.S. official told CBS on Tuesday. The Obama administration, according to the official, was due to announce that the U.S. would make a large donation of food aid to North Korea, and in turn North Korea was to announce the suspension of its controversial uranium enrichment program.

    For the second time in little over a year, it looks as though the world may be heading for a serious food crisis, thanks to our old friend "climate change". In many parts of the world recently the weather has not been too brilliant for farmers. After a fearsomely cold winter, June brought heavy snowfall across large parts of western Canada and the northern states of the American Midwest. In Manitoba last week, it was -4ºC. North Dakota had its first June snow for 60 years. There was midsummer snow not just in Norway and the Cairngorms, but even in...

    Arnold Schwarzenegger became the first governor in memory -- at least going back to Pat Brown -- to parachute into the district of a legislator of his own party and exhort citizens to browbeat their representative into voting his way.... Senate Republicans assert that's not enough. "They're phony reductions," says Sen. Tom McClintock (R-Thousand Oaks). He cites one example: Schwarzenegger would "save" $160 million by delaying a Medi-Cal payment for one month, shoving it into the next fiscal year. He adds: "What the governor says and what the governor does are two distinctively different things."

    Democratic leaders fear that Rep. William J. Jefferson's indictment yesterday on racketeering and bribery charges, coming exactly one year after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi engineered his ouster from the powerful Ways and Means Committee, could rekindle a smoldering dispute between the speaker and black lawmakers who were once pillars of her power. For months, the Louisiana Democrat's mounting legal peril has bedeviled Democrats as they sought first to point to corruption as a tool to oust Republicans from control of Congress, then pressed for ethics and lobbying changes that they said would usher in a new era of clean politics...

    Barring a miracle, there will be no Pride Week Festival in Ottawa this year, festival organizers say, after city council rejected please for emergency funding yesterday. Somerset Councillor Diane Holmes asked councillors and the mayor to grant $20,000 to help get this year's event - the 20th anniversary edition - off the ground. But the plea fell mostly on deaf ears, and the move was defeated on a vote of 15 to 3.Ms. Holmes then tried to get councillors and the mayor to agree to give organizers $12,000 to pay for insurance so a small-scale festival could be held. This...

    CANADIAN PRESS via Toronto Star ^ | Jun. 21, 2006. | CP staff
    OTTAWA — Liberals and Conservatives joined forces Wednesday to block an NDP motion that threatened to trigger a fall election. The motion, at the Commons environment committee, called for the resignation of Environment Minister Rona Ambrose. If it had passed at committee, it would have gone to a vote in the House of Commons in the fall. And because the Conservatives declared it a confidence motion, it threatened to bring down the government. Even though Conservative committee chair Bob Mills had declared the motion valid, Tory members challenged his ruling and overturned it with the support of the Liberals. “The...

    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

My reply (and I will admit was tasteless) was also questioning. It stirred controversy and was removed? Why Moderators? Can you not tell me? Did it not meet with your "FReeper" mentality?

  • Solo's Errant Spell-Check Causes 'Sea Sponge' Invasion

    Law.com ^ | Mike McKee
    Spell-checking on his computer is never going to be the same for Santa Cruz solo practitioner Arthur Dudley. In an opening brief to San Francisco's 1st District Court of Appeal, a search-and-replace command by Dudley inexplicably inserted the words "sea sponge" instead of the legal term "sua sponte," which is Latin for "on its own motion." "Spell check did not have sua sponte in it," said Dudley, who, not noticing the error, shipped the brief to court. That left the justices reading -- and probably laughing at -- such classic statements as: "An appropriate instruction limiting the judge's criminal liability...

    For years, I've hated listening to the infantile blathering of America's leftists. All that was required for me to come down with a splitting headache was to hear John Kerry, Robert Byrd or Joseph Biden insist that if only they were running things, gas would cost 25 cents-a-gallon, peace would reign in the Middle East, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg would be the most conservative justice on the Supreme Court. However, not too long ago, I had an epiphany. It's not just that the liberals are annoying because of what they say, but because of the way they say it. Have...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    The Kolbrin Bible is truly special. This copy of the Kolbrin comes from the version from India. It was originally called the Bronze Book which survived the burning of the Glastonbury Abbey in 1184 AD. That is critical, because the Glastonbury Abbey is located squarely on the ground that was gifted to Joseph of Arimathea and the Virgin Mary by Christian King Avaragus after the crucifixion of Christ. The family of Avaragus launched all our western versions of Christianity, from Catholicism to Protestant churches. His family owned the Palace of the Britains in Rome, which still stands today across...

    MTV or Bust MTV debuted in New York City in 1981, and as it quickly spread across the country along with the spread of cable television, it soon became known as the network that went against the grain and represented youthful defiance in America. Because of this defiant nature, MTV was not afraid to back down from political controversy. In 1985, Dee Snider, Frank Zappa, and John Denver testified before the US Senate in response to the Parents Music Resource Center’s goal of censoring records containing improper lyrics. MTV had no qualms about taking the side of these three musical...

    WASHINGTON -- Angry House Republicans yesterday warned their Democratic colleagues to expect a spate of inquiries into possible ethics violations in retaliation for forcing GOP leaders to jettison controversial new rules for ethics investigations. The Republican warnings came a day after House GOP leaders, under intense pressure from Democrats and falling support in public opinion polls, made a rare policy reversal and grudgingly scrapped ethics rules they had pushed through the House only a few months ago. Republicans had contended that the rules they favored made the ethics process more fair and efficient. Democrats argued that they were intended to...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

    Top Democrats, including New York Sen.

McAuliffe is due to give up the post in five weeks when his four-year term ends at the DNC's winter meeting in Washington, DC. The Democrats trying to get him to extend his tour of duty fear that the large current crop of candidates for chair has not sufficiently inspired the 440-odd voting members of the national committee, and that a...

    Instapundit reports that in a post-Election Day appearance, Maureen Dowd "looks absolutely terrible. It's like she's aged ten years since I last saw her. Her manner is subdued, and bitter, too. I guess that explains her post-election writing. It's striking to see a pundit taking the election so hard — most actual Democratic politicians seem to be maintaining more personal distance." Well, really, who had more on the line in this campaign? A professional politician has ups and downs in his or her career; you win some races, and you lose some.

    (CNSNews.com) - The president of the National Education Association irked some school choice supporters when he said there was "no consistent evidence" that vouchers improve educational opportunities for students. Following President Bush's Tuesday visit to a charter school in the District of Columbia, the head of the NEA, Reg Weaver, offered a critical assessment of the administration's plan to pump $15 million into a taxpayer-funded voucher initiative. "The baseline for any education reform proposal ought to be whether or not it improves student achievement," Weaver said in a statement. "After numerous experiments and millions of dollars, there is no consistent...
