    There was no clowning around for Doo Doo the Clown when he called 911 after witnessing a man attack two women on Sunday afternoon. Doo Doo — also known as Shane Farberman — says when he saw the man punch one of the women in the head near Front Street West and Bathurst Street he went into action. "I remember pulling up as fast as I can screaming, 'Get in, get in!' and I know that I am a clown and I had a car full of clowns, but these ladies ran and jumped into the back," said Doo...

    Sometimes youve gotta laugh. Like when they send in the clowns. These particular clowns came from Spain last week to protest Israeli policies next to what they describe as the Apartheid Wall near Jerusalem, and it is no exaggeration to say they were willing to drop everything for the cause. Wearing only red noses, these clowns posed in front of the wall hoping to attract attention. And they were successful. Their red noses turned to red faces at the reaction. According to a Ynet report, the Spanish activists received a virtual slap in the face (and given their state of...

    Clownville, a photo series featuring grotesque portraits of terrifying clowns, is the photographic nightmare of French-born photographer Eolo Perfido. Perfido says he was inspired by silent film stars like Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, who were forced to exaggerate their emotions because they were unable to speak. Modern clowns first appeared in the late 18th century and were associated with circuses and comedy. The word itself comes from a Scandinavian linguistic root meaning clumsy, boorish fellow. This is why Perfidos photography is so shockinghes transformed something funny and joyful into a vulgar terror. Eolo Perfido now lives in Italy. His...

    It's like a scene from a horror film. Residents of a California city are being terrorized by people dressed as clowns, some reportedly wielding machetes or baseball bats, police said.

"And, clearly, if someone is dressed up as a clown and holding a weapon in a threatening manner, that's going to frighten people." There have been 20 sightings in a week, but only one clown has landed in cuffs. Bakersfield police arrested one juvenile last week for allegedly chasing other juveniles while...

    For anti-Americans and others addicted to Schadenfreude, it could hardly get better. The delicious clip of Republican candidate Rick Perry, unable to remember the name of one of the three departments of the federal government he had pledged to abolish, was a moment to treasure. But seen in a larger context, the comic relief soon fades. For the American political system seems to be unravelling in the most extraordinary way. A president whom many regard as a failure, and who is a disappointment even to his most fervent admirers, looks likely to squeeze through the 2012 presidential election, now less...

    Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul is demonstrating an appalling ignorance on the Iranian nuclear issue and the threat it poses to world security. In fact, several times during the recent GOP debates he blamed the animosity against the U.S. in the Middle East on America's foreign policy. Paul recently argued on "Fox News Sunday" that sanctions should be removed altogether to get Iran to act differently and that the U.S. response to Iran's nuclear pursuit was an "overreaction." He added that Iran does not pose a threat to either the U.S. or the region. The congressman from Texas insists that...

Such as the right not to have the verdict and sentence publicly proclaimed before trial by the nation's top officials.

And President Obama himself said something similar last November, declaring of KSM: "I don't think that it will...

    MOSCOW If Paris is for lovers, it looks like Moscow is for families. After passing on dinner with the French president to go on a date in the City of Light with his wife last month, President Obama took leave of his Russian hosts on Tuesday night to seclude himself in his Moscow hotel with his wife, Michelle, and their daughters. The first family enjoyed a relaxed evening at the O2 Lounge, the super-chic, super-pricey rooftop club at the new Ritz-Carlton, although no doubt the Secret Service first cleared the place of most if not all of the swaggering...

    After talking to President Barack Obama on the phone today, Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch says he believes the White House will move swiftly on its Supreme Court nominee, perhaps making an announcement by the end of this week. Obama made no timing commitments to the Utah Republican, but the senator, who has been in the middle of several pitched Supreme Court battles, said: Id be surprised if it went beyond this week. ... I would think by the end of this week or over the weekend, hell nominate somebody. Im sure theyve discussed this internally, back and forth for months...

    No earthly society is above or outside cultural anthropological study. Therefore I propose to examine the possibility of a functioning clown society in America. They call themselves many things, but are most commonly known as homosexuals. Clown society is defined in wikipedia: "Clown society is a term used in anthropology and sociology for an organization of comedic entertainers...who have a formalized role in a culture or society." With a little more help from wiki we learn: Sometimes...the purpose served by members of a clown society is only to parody excessive seriousness, or to deflate pomposity.In the sense of how clowns...

    The real world is a dangerous place filled with dangerous people. Severe myopia can be fatal. Mr. Magoo makes an amusing cartoon character, but a lousy role model. Jimmy Carter bears a striking resemblance to Mr. Magoo. That is why I am deeply troubled when Barack Obama begins to resemble Jimmy Carter.

    WASHINGTON -- Energy Secretary Steven Chu -- whose agency has long taken the lead on global oil-market policy -- said Thursday he doesn't know what the Obama administration would urge the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries to do at its meeting next month. "I'm not the administration," Mr. Chu said during a meeting with reporters Thursday. OPEC members are scheduled to meet March 15 to discuss the possibility of production cuts to respond to slumping prices. "I will be speaking and learning more about this in order to figure out what the U.S. position should be and what the president's...
  • Our Burdened Economy - Vanity Reminder For Freepers

    Just a reminder that the federal minimum wage will be going up to $7.25 in July of this year. Its in the mid- sixes now, which makes it an increase of almost $1 per hour. Great timing on this for businesses. /Sarc I haven't heard anything from the clowns in Washington about stopping this, why not use the excuse of poor economy as a basis for political action like the left is doing and start making calls to stop this increase?
