    I subscribe to Netflix and Amazon. My ISP is Cox and the Cox box is situated next to the tv. There's also a Samsung DVD/streaming movie box next to the tv. Netflix movies stream fine. The problem is with Amazon. I can watch older (picture Paul Newman in "The Hustler", B&W) movies but with newer movies I'm getting, "Insufficient bandwidth" message. However, on my computers I can stream those movies just fine. Why is there insufficient bandwidth on the tv streaming just for newer (HD) movies? And just on Amazon? Finally, how can this be fixed? thanks

    New York Post ^ | 10/14/13 | Frederic U Dicker
    Increasingly desperate New York Republicans, seeking the political equivalent of a Hail Mary pass, are trying to get Donald Trump to run against Gov. Cuomo next year…. They’re seeking to make the case that while Trump is only an apprentice politician, he’s the only Republican on the horizon who has the name recognition, guts and money to tell Cuomo, “You’re fired!” They’re also arguing that Trump could launch a 2016 presidential run — which he has clearly been eyeing with his criticisms of President Obama and Washington — by first winning the election for governor. So far, Trump, who only...

    Oh irony, oh hypocrisy! Joe Scarborough opened today's Morning Joe by singing the praises of NBC's Pete Williams for not jumping onto the story that other news outlets were reporting yesterday that an arrest had been made in the Boston Marathon bombing. Scarborough condemned journalists "far more interested in getting it first than getting it right." But mere minutes later, Scarborough accused former Republican congressman Chris Cox of "lying," in his role as NRA spokesman. Just one problen, as Scarborough had to admit later in the show: he had the wrong Chris Cox. Check back soon for the video.

Houston-based TaxMasters became a household name due to commercials featuring Cox, who promised consumers his firm could walk them through audits, settle tax disputes and recover property seized by the IRS. It gained more dubious recognition in 2010, when Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott filed a lawsuit saying some of...

    In the blue state of California, a Republican stronghold east of Sacramento has been buffeted by a fierce GOP internal battle for hearts, minds and votes. The tempest is fueled by a dose of local tea party politics and pits three GOP rivals against one another – and a Democrat – who are all vying Nov. 2 for California's 1st Senate District. The Republican rivalry for the seat is testing whether one of them, termed-out Assemblyman Roger Niello, can survive what for many in the GOP is a cardinal sin: voting last year for tax increases to help close a...

    While several legal scholars have suggested it specious, a prominent constitutional law professor on Tuesday defended the lawsuit backed by Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox challenging the legality of recently-signed health care reform legislation. Cox last month joined more than a dozen other state attorneys general on a lawsuit filed in Florida that contends the federal government does not have the right to require health coverage and is violating the U.S. Constitution by forcing individual mandates in states without providing the resources to pay for it. “These claims are highly plausible. Whether they are ultimately successful at the Supreme Court...

    Republicans across New York are practically salivating at the prospect of turning New York red at the Governor’s mansion, United States Senate, and at tons of state and local races from Broome to Queens County. It’s the kind of excitement that should raise the brow of New York’s Senator Chuck Schumer, former Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, but the GOP need not worry, he’s one of those politicians so self absorbed that if he was playing right field he wouldn’t see a pop-up until it hit him in the face!

State Schools Superintendant Kathy Cox and her husband, a homebuilder, last week filed for personal bankruptcy, citing more $3.5 million in liabilities and less than $650,000 in assets, according to court documents. Most of the debt relates to John Cox’s business, Pebble Hill Homes, which he started in Fayetteville in 2001, the filing indicates. Kathy Cox, who makes about $125,000 a year, has no role in the business but is a co-signer on loans for it, a spokesman said. As...

"Mismanagement and greed became the operating standard while regulators were asleep at the switch," McCain said. "The Chairman of the SEC serves at the appointment of the President and has betrayed the public's trust. If I were President today, I would fire him." Within hours, McCain's statement came under fire. His critics focused less on his assignment of blame than on his proposed remedy: as ABC's Jake Tapper put it, "the president does not have the power...

    EDITORIAL - In late 2006, America spoke, and it rejected Republican control of Congress. That rejection has also been felt in many statehouses and state legislatures in the nation. Now it is time for our party to return to its principles, find its soul, and rebuild itself again. Republicans must once again act like Republicans. The election disaster for the Republican Party can be laid squarely at the feet of party insiders and career politicians who had grown comfortable, lazy, and even corrupt, while serving in Congress. To be blunt, the Republican Congress let conservatives down.

The deserving names are by now familiar: Alito, Luttig, Jones, Batchelder, Sykes, Brown, Pryor (if only!), Olson..... the list goes on.

    Fraud, What Fraud? Voter Oddities in Georgia By William John Hagan Houston Home Journal Warner Robins, GA Personally, I was relieved when Georgia Secretary of State Cathy Cox stated that, “I cannot recall one documented case of voter fraud during my tenure as Secretary of State.” Never again would I have to have my vote canceled out by a constituent who, long ago, had gone to his grave or, better yet, had never existed. Cathy Cox’s representations were not only assuring, they offered hope that the long anticipated demise of our democratic system has been “greatly exaggerated.” My relief was...

    Lawsuit filed on ballot description Minuteman Project founder Jim Gilchrist said Tuesday that he filed a lawsuit against Secretary of State Bruce McPherson and Orange County Registrar of Voters Steve Rodermund for refusing to print the group under his name on the 48th District special-election ballot. The suit was filed in Sacramento County Superior Court. McPherson disallowed the ballot designation, saying state law bans anything commercial from being under a candidate's name. Gilchrist, an American Independent Party candidate, said leading that group is his "vocation" and should be allowed. The secretary also ruled that Republican candidate Ed Suppe could not...

    PORTLAND, Ore. - Libertarian Tom Cox has joined the GOP, after being tagged as a spoiler in at least two previous elections. Cox ran for governor in 2002, and got more votes than Democratic Governor Ted Kulongoski's margin of victory. Some Republican had charged that Cox's candidacy cost their candidate - former state legislator Kevin Mannix - the race. Mannix is preparing for a rematch against Kulongoski in next year's gubernatorial race. He said Cox is a welcome addition to the Republican party. Cox hinted that he may even support his former opponent in the 2006 race for governor, saying...

    Hillary Lucks Out August 10, 2005 This column was written by John Nichols. New York Senator Hillary Clinton has always looked like a good bet to win re-election in 2006 -- probably by a margin wide enough to jumpstart the 2008 presidential campaign that many Democrats want the former First Lady to make. With the decision of Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro to seek the Republican nomination to challenge her, however, Clinton's fortunes have taken a dramatic turn for the better. Pirro, a hyper-ambitious publicity hound who frequently turns up on the Fox News Channel as a "legal affairs"...

    ...Pirro joins two other Republicans— attorney Ed Cox, son-in-law of the late President Richard Nixon, and former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer— who already have formed exploratory committees.... At the outset, Pirro makes an important point: Clinton has her eyes set on the White House in 2008. If she retains her seat next year, she's likely to give short shrift to that job while campaigning for president the following two years. And if she wins the presidency, New Yorkers will lose her as their senator. These are not necessarily disqualifying prospects. But New Yorkers should be aware of the risks before...

    Senate Hopeful Casts Clinton as a Carpetbagger (Again) By PATRICK D. HEALY Ed Cox, a Republican planning to challenge Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton next year, yesterday revived the charge that Mrs. Clinton was not a real New Yorker and said she was more preoccupied with running for president than with serving the state in the Senate. In remarks to supporters and then at his first news conference with reporters, Mr. Cox offered himself as a meat-and-potatoes conservative who would help New York by being a member of the party in power in the White House and Congress. "We need a...
