  • James Best, Rosco P. Coltrane of 'The Dukes of Hazzard,' Has Died

    James Best, best known as Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane on The Dukes of Hazzard, has died, at age 88. Best was a wonderfully versatile actor within a self-imposed narrow range—a Southerner who could be wily or stupid, sometimes both and a bit more. He was a gifted musician and acting teacher as well as an actor. Born Jewel Franklin Guy in Powderly, Kentucky, Best came by his show business career naturally–his mother was the sister of Ike Everly, the father of the Everly Brothers. Most people know him as Roscoe P. Coltrane, a bumbler who was the butt of jokes...
  • Morgan Freeman: Obama Made Racism Worse, Tea Party Will Do 'Whatever [It] Can To Get This Black

    FREEMAN: "Mitch McConnell. Their stated policy, publicly stated, is to do whatever it takes to see to it that Obama only serves one term. What’s, what does that, what underlines that? “Screw the country. We’re going to whatever we do to get this black man, we can, we’re going to do whatever we can to get this black man outta here.” MORGAN: "But is that necessarily a racist thing?" FREEMAN: "It is a racist thing."

    When was AAIA founded and why? What is AAIA's goal? AAIA was founded in May, 2010 as a section 527 political organization. Our goal has been the platform for the American people to be heard. Many politicians claim to speak for the American people but the true voice of Americans is not being echoed or represented in Washington DC. You are the Executive Director of AAIA. Do you believe that illegal immigration is the most important political issue of today? I believe that many of the problems we currently have in the United States are rooted in illegal immigration: healthcare...

    On January 8, 2011, in Tucson, Arizona, a madman named Jared Loughner murdered 6 people, shot a Congresswoman in the head, and injured another 14. He was tackled and subdued by heroes who had been in the middle of the horror. In the hours after the rampage, little was known about Loughner. It was in this time that America was introduced to Clarence Dupnik, the Pima County Sheriff. In the absence of facts, Dupnik quickly and loudly began to blame the right and talk radio for the tragedy in Tucson. As facts slowly came in, it was learned that Loughner...

    TALK of the New Politics in Britain, at its most inflated, is understated compared to the millenarian, "Millions now living will never die" hysteria that swept the United States on 20 January, 2009, the day of Barack Obama's inauguration as President. That was little more than 16 months ago, but it seems like another age. Never has any US politician's reputation crumbled so quickly. Obama's position is beyond dire. According to Rasmussen's latest ratings, just 25 per cent of Americans "strongly approve" of Obama's performance, while 41 per cent "strongly disapprove". His presidential approval rating is -16. His ratings for...

    "We can't drill our way out of the problem." Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has said it. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has said it. It's one of those bromides sincerely repeated by Democrats with such conviction that for years left-leaning audiences duly nodded their heads, never questioning whether the truism was indeed true. Until gasoline leaped above the $4-a-gallon mark. Now some polls show that Americans support more domestic drilling. President Bush seized the moment Wednesday when he asked Congress to lift its ban on offshore drilling. Even Republican presidential candidate John McCain has seen the light. A long-time...

    Forty thousand marched in beside the Americans. Only 7,100 remain; 1,600 will be heading home by Easter. By August, the Danish force of 470 is to be withdrawn, as is the tiny Lithuanian unit. South Korea has 2,200 troops in the Kurdish north. Though they rarely leave base, 1,100 are to depart by August, the rest by year's end. The Italians are gone. The Spanish pulled out after the Madrid bombings. Ukraine's 1,600 have departed. The Japanese have gone.

    The GOP leadership sold its soul and sold out its core constituency for the figurative 40 pieces of silver. Whats more, their apologists on this forum expect that all Conservatives should have followed lock-step behind them. Conservatism is an ideology, not a party. If the GOP wants the money, votes, and support of conservatives it must be conservative. We are not here to represent the party, the party is here to represent us. As Reagan once said of the Democratic Party; "it left me, I didn't leave it". Let's see if it can find its way home.

That sensitive Republican project designed to rid lobbying firms and trade associations of Democrats and populate them with staunch conservative allies of lawmakers? It's there, in plain view: at its website, www.kstreetproject.com. The project's mission statement engages in a bit of misdirection. The "K Street Project," it says, "is non-partisan research of political affiliation, employment background, and political donations of members in Washington DC's premier lobbying firms, trade associations, and industries." In other words -- anyone who adheres to free market...

    by Mark Finkelstein December 31, 2005 - 07:56 In their heart of hearts, do the liberal media believe that when it comes to the struggle against terrorism, we are truly at war? To judge by liberal Newsday columnist Ellis Henican's performance on this morning's Fox & Friends Weekend, you would have to conclude not. Thankfully, fellow Newsday columnist Jim Pinkerton was there to remind his colleague of some cold, hard facts. The topic was the Justice Department's investigation into the leaks behind the New York Times' publication of the highly-classified program of NSA surveillance of possible Al-Qaeda-related phone calls.

    A lot of folks can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in our country. There's a very simple answer. Nobody bothered to check the oil. We just didn't know we were getting low. The reason for that is purely geographical. Our OIL is located in Alaska, California, Oklahoma and Texas. Our DIPSTICKS are located in Washington, D.C.

    ATLANTA - If television's "Crazy Cooter" has his way, fans of the "Dukes of Hazzard" may be speeding away from a new movie version of the cornpone classic faster than the Duke boys running from Sheriff Roscoe P. Coltrane. Ben Jones, a former Georgia congressman who played the wisecracking mechanic on the popular series from 1979-85, said profanity and sexual content in the film make a mockery of the family friendly show. "Basically, they trashed our show," said Jones, who now lives in the mountains of Washington, Va. "It's one thing to do whatever movie they want to do, but...

Dr. Maathai, a 64-year-old biologist, whose Green Belt Movement is credited with planting millions of trees in an attempt to reforest Kenya, said that her recent statements about AIDS and H.I.V., reported in the African press, were...

We hear that lawyers for the sportswear giant have been exploring how the company might slip out of the five-year, $45 million deal it signed with the three-time NBA champion before he was charged with sexually assaulting a 19-year-old ex-cheerleader in Colorado. Nike has scratched plans - at least for now - for a Kobe Bryant signature shoe, a source tells us. "Nike sees him as damaged goods,"...
