    When the braying of donkeys is joined by the trumpeting of elephants, some important deaths go completely unnoticed Hit Barack Obama with a dose of reality, and Nancy Pelosi cries. Make that “nearly” cries to squeeze out every ounce of publicity there for the taking when a statesman FINALLY has the floor in joint Congress. “I nearly cried” is what a 4-year-old tells his buddy when explaining how his mother wouldn’t let him have a second ice cream cone during yesterday’s family outing. “House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday blasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress about...

    PBS’s new special, Gunned Down: The Power of the NRA, includes looks at other gun rights groups–like Gun Owners of America (GOA)–and actually credits GOA with dragging Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) into the light when he tried to cloak his 2013 gun control push with words like “compromise” and “loopholes.” (SNIP) Consequently, the GOA began pushing other gun rights groups–notably the NRA–by asking GOA members to call the NRA and “urge [them] to oppose [Manchin’s] bill.”

He then took the tissue off and addressed the guards :”.... anyone who does not like you…oh members of the national guards.” The paper said the film was circulated on social networks in Saudi Arabia and viewed by a large number of people but...

Joshua Cooper, 18, was booked at Solano County Jail on suspicion of child cruelty and aggravated mayhem. The incident was reported shortly after 8 a.m. when a "hysterical" 17-year-old girl called police, saying her son was bleeding from his nose, said Fairfield police Sgt. Troy Oviatt.

    The family of the woman Kermit Gosnell killed in a botched legal abortion testified today at his murder trial. They were questioned about the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, who is sometimes forgotten amid the national controversy that has erupted over Gosnell’s abortion business. Mongar died November 20, 2009, after overdosing on anesthetics prescribed by the abortion practitioner. A political refugee from the country of Bhutan, Mongar went to Gosnell on Nov. 19, 2009 for the abortion and, prior to it, was given numerous doses of pain and sedation drugs by an individual who was not a licensed medical practitioner....

    Mr. Lewis said there was one particularly moving exchange with the president that he wished he could have described in greater detail. But the White House nixed the idea, perhaps wary of having the commander in chief described as in tears. Mr. Lewis declined to delve into too much detail because he said he did not want to violate the ground rules he agreed to, but he did offer that the president explained to him how the job exacts a heavy emotional toll.

    The House will have just eight legislative workdays in September, and at least one of them will now be spent taking up a stopgap spending bill to fund the government past the election and through what is expected to be an extraordinarily hectic lame-duck session. The chamber will not take up a continuing resolution bill this week, according to aides, but House and Senate leaders are expected to announce as early as Tuesday afternoon that they have reached an informal agreement to take up a roughly six-month continuing resolution when they return from the August recess.

Presenting her “presidential project”, Ms Le Pen said Europe should give up the euro, which had “asphyxiated our economies, killed our industries and choked our jobs” for years, as well as causing France to accumulate “Himalayan” debts.

    <p>The editors at Red State and Free Republic (among others) have had the wool pulled over their eyes. They seem to actually believe the lies originally propagated by supporters of President Obama and, in some cases, even by President Obama himself. Now, for some reason, these editors/moderators are so insecure in their prejudice against Gov. Romney that they ban people who openly support Gov. Romney. Free Republic (mostly because of it’s owner Jim Robinson) has purged all of the Romney supporters they could from the site in two waves of purges over the last few years. The anti-Romney and anti-Mormon bigotry evident at Free Republic now is absolutely sickening.</p>

    Want career success? Don’t cry at work By Michelle Goodman -- ABC News 11:22 AM 09/02/2011 Thanks to Dick Cheney’s new memoir, crying in the workplace is back in the news. In it, Cheney snidely describes former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as “tearfully” conceding he’d been right about not needing to apologize for the now-infamous line in Bush’s 2003 State of the Union about Iraq’s alleged quest for uranium in Niger. But you don’t have to be a high-ranking official for on-the-job tears to tarnish your reputation. Among rank-and-filers, crying at work is often met with the same negative...

    John Boehner, the Speaker-elect of the US House of Representatives, has been dubbed the "weeper of the House" by women after crying twice during a prime time television interview. His tearful performance on 60 Minutes followed a blubbery breakdown during his speech last month marking the Republicans' victory in the mid-term elections, when it became clear that Mr Boehner would become the third most powerful position in Washington. He was roundly mocked by Barbara Walters, the veteran broadcast journalist, and her all-female co-presenters on The View, a popular afternoon show. Although crying in public may not carry the stigma it...

He is said to be loyal to his friends and to the traditions of the House, and last week he promoted three long-serving Republicans to the leadership of three committees where various sets of reformers had hoped to see new faces for a new era. Tea Party activists are outraged and, worse by far, the Pledge to America that Boehner and his colleagues promulgated on a House Web site as binding on the Republicans...

    The steep fall in global commodity prices over the past several weeks has brought Argentina to the brink of fiscal collapse—alas, not an unfamiliar position for the South American country. For far too long, the Argentine government behaved as if commodity prices would keep rising forever. It spent like a drunken sailor and made unsustainable commitments to the public sector. Such irresponsible fiscal policies were promoted aggressively by Argentine President Néstor Kirchner, who served from 2003 to 2007, and they have been continued by his wife, Cristina, who in 2007 was elected to succeed her husband as president.

    Even as it is being digested on its way to becoming conventional wisdom, the emerging narrative of the New Hampshire Democratic primary offers a profoundly distressing scenario. Hillary Clinton apparently was rewarded with a crucial victory for that teary moment in a diner. Forget her intelligence, her long career, her hard work, her positions and even the quality of her opponents. None of that mattered after the briefest sign of waterworks. Instantly, large numbers of female voters seemed to have put aside their reservations and rushed to support her. It is a breathtaking development in the glorious history of women's...

    Late payments on U.S. home equity lines of credit rose to a 5-1/2 year high in the second quarter of 2007 but delinquencies on many other types of consumer loans fell, the American Bankers Association said Wednesday. In its quarterly report on consumer borrowing, the bankers group said delinquencies in repaying home equity lines of credit rose to 0.77 percent in the April-June period. That compared to a rate of 0.60 percent in the first quarter and represented the highest rate since the fourth quarter of 2001 when the rate was 0.81 percent. However, the rate of closed-end home equity...

    Muslim business travellers are boycotting Glasgow airport, according to a leading Scottish figure. Bashir Mann, from the Muslim Council of Great Britan, complained of heavy-handed and humiliating searches by anti-terrorist police officers. Dozens of executives have said they are no longer prepared to fly from Scotland and are using Manchester instead. Strathclyde Police said it was looking at training to raise awareness of cultural and religious sensitivities. Mr Mann said: "I'd never experienced anything like that before in Scotland. "This was a show of sheer discrimination, victimisation of certain sections of the community in Scotland." Glasgow businessman Mohammed ashraf said...

    SYDNEY (Reuters) - New Zealand rugby fans are bidding thousands of dollars for the chance to own the handbag that reduced a burly All Blacks player to tears. In one of the more bizarre off-field sporting incidents, former New Zealand captain Tana Umaga tangled with Hurricanes club team mate Chris Masoe in a nightclub after losing the prestigious Super 14 tournament final last Saturday. Masoe, who has played two tests for New Zealand, tripped over a man's feet in the Jolly Poacher bar in Christchurch early last Sunday and then hit the unidentified man in retaliation. Umaga, one of New...

    Third TimeAmerica may be ready for a new political party. Something's happening. I have a feeling we're at some new beginning, that a big breakup's coming, and that though it isn't and will not be immediately apparent, we'll someday look back on this era as the time when a shift began. All my adult life, people have been saying that the two-party system is ending, that the Democrats' and Republicans' control of political power in America is winding down. According to the traditional critique, the two parties no longer offer the people the choice they want and deserve. Sometimes it's...
  • Malvo and the War Debate (ZOT!!! Why not to go off antipsychotic meds without a doctor’s guidance)

    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...

    I recently received a reply to a post that stated: "This should be beneath a "freeper". Sad." So I asked.. what is it that makes a FReeper? 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? According to all posted guidelines it should be listed but no, you chose to delete it. Yes.. I'm the first one IBTZ, I'm sure you'll nick me for speaking up..

    A HECKLER from the Falun Gong spiritual movement, who entered White House grounds as a reporter, interrupted a formal arrival ceremony for Chinese President Hu Jintao today, prompting President George W. Bush to apologise to his guest. After being welcomed by Mr Bush, the Chinese president was just beginning his response when a woman, who had been allowed into the press section, started shouting. She was escorted away by a uniformed US guard. "President Hu, your days are numbered. President Bush, make him stop persecuting Falun Gong," the woman yelled. US officials later identified her as Wang Wenyi, 47, a...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...
