    Politico says White House correspondent Joe Williams is on his way out the door. But the reporter who found himself ousted from his job — after making a penis joke about the Romneys, accusing his own publication of “blatant racism” and saying the Republican nominee for president is much more comfortable around “white folks” — isn’t technically gone yet. In fact, Williams — who pleaded guilty in May to assaulting his ex-wife — is still employed with the company and is still using his company email.

    On New Year’s Day, NBC honking head Andrea Mitchell tried making America hip to the Hawkeye State’s unforgivable lack of hipness: The rap on Iowa: it doesn’t represent the rest of the country—too white, too evangelical, too rural. This isn’t the first time Ms. Mitchell—presumably a reporter rather than some wacked-out urban-supremacist sockpuppet—has made such a statement. In 2008 she chuckled while wondering why Barack Obama would bother to campaign in Southwest Virginia: This is real [laughs] redneck, sort of, um, bordering on Appalachia country.

    (CNSNews.com) – Although more young people found jobs between April and July, the percentage of young people employed in July 2011 was the lowest July rate on record since the government started tracking the numbers in 1948. Data released on Wednesday by the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) shows that only 48.8 percent of young people ages 16-24 were employed in July, a slightly lower percentage than last year. Youth employment typically peaks in July, as high school and college students work summer jobs and graduates take permanent jobs. In July 2011, 18.6 million 16- to 24-year-olds were...

Reid also hopes to keep helping cash-strapped states with their Medicaid budgets, he said Tuesday on the Senate floor.
  • Top immigration official says he'll cut down on state's illegally employed

    PHOENIX - The new top immigration enforcement official in Arizona promised Monday to do more to cut down on the number of people working illegally in this country. Alonzo Peña said he plans to start bringing criminal charges against firms that provide false papers to undocumented workers. Peña said it is not enough simply to seek civil sanctions. But Peña, who took over about two months ago as the special agent in charge of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said he also wants to work cooperatively with employers who are trying to comply with the law. Peña's comments came after a...

    The purpose of FreeRepublic.com's multiple message boards is to limit the topics for each board to particular topics. Posting the same message on all the boards defeats the purpose of multiple-boards for special topics. It is very annoying to see the same message on every bulletin board. PLEASE! DO THE READERS A FAVOR. STOP CROSS-POSTING YOUR MESSAGES!
