    During the 2008 Presidential campaign, "mainstream" media confused the public over whether Obama ever released any real proof of his claim to being born in Hawaii. The confusion continues. Jonathan Alter, senior editor at Newsweek magazine, told MSNBC's Keith Olbermann on February 20, 2009 that "The Obama campaign actually posted his birth certificate from a Hawaii hospital online." But Alter lied, since "the Obama campaign" never "actually posted his birth certificate from a Hawaii hospital online." Remarkably, no hospital in Hawaii yet lays definitive claim to be the birthplace of the sitting President. .. On the FactCheck.org website, the claim...

    Lane Kiffin will be formally introduced as Head Coach of The Oakland Raiders during a press conference on Tuesday, January 23, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. at the Raiders' facility in Alameda. With his appointment today by Raiders owner Al Davis, Kiffin becomes the 16th head coach in franchise history and the youngest head coach in the NFL. The 31-year old Kiffin is also the youngest Head Coach in Raider history. Pro Football Hall of Fame Coach John Madden was 32 when he was elevated to the head post by Davis in 1969. Most recently, Kiffin presided over the vaunted offensive...

    (July 22 event coincides with Dane County Fair...) There probably isn't a more appropriate venue than Madison for an event celebrating hybrid vehicles. Madison, which by some accounts has the highest per person ownership of hybrid vehicles in the country, will be the site of "Hybridfest 2006" on July 22 at the Alliant Energy Center, in conjunction with the Dane County Fair. The event is so grass-roots you can almost smell the fresh clippings: The five organizers are volunteers with no ties to the industry beyond being hybrid owners."That's the neat thing," said Bill Robbins, one of the organizers. "All...

    Today I am writing from a sorta weird position. I am truly in a paradox, and need help and advice. I am writing about Rigo Garcia, my step-father now, but before a friend. He was introduced to me by my mother, and most times when this happens I end up either really not liking the person, or trying to ignore them due to a wanting to not like them. Neither occured with Rigo. Here comes the issue: Rigo was here illegally in the US. He was arrested several months back for being an illegal, and while in prison my mom...

    Our Constitution has stood the test of time. It has served our country well, guiding it through times of war, peace, prosperity and depression. As a conservative I do not want it changed without good reason. One worthy reason is protecting marriage as a covenant between a man and a woman, a definition in consonance with Christian tradition that has proven itself sufficient for centuries. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) has proposed to amend the Constitution to allow naturalized Americans to become president. If his amendment were adopted any person who had been a United States citizen for at least twenty...
