    The great detective writer Raymond Chandler’s final Philip Marlowe novel is titled “The Long Goodbye.” Perhaps Chandler was looking forward to Barack Obama’s look-at-me-I’m-still-important address Tuesday night. It was a dirge that went on at No-Doz length. Unfortunately, I missed the address in real time because I had a conflict. I had to flea-powder the cat. As for addresses, it was sufficient for me that Obama’s will soon no longer start with 1600. But I learned Wednesday morning that Obama established a new NCAA record for adios speech length, speaking longer than Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and Bill Clinton...

    This speech by our White House sociopath is so disjointed, obtuse, full of self-love that it is almost embarrassing to watch someone dig such a deep hole of self-depravity that I had to take a break and puke. Once the patriotic members of our press have read the transcript of his pitiful rambling, he will be shoved down the toilet he deserves.

    I did not watch the Obama "Farewell Speech" last evening....but I did get good glimpse of the folks that attended. Based on that demographic....the downfall of the current Democrat Party continues unabated. Having a smattering (17,000) of White liberal low life and wealthy African-Americans in the Obama cheering tent does not bode well for Obama's Democrat Party. (Trump gets 20,000 folks, when he snaps his fingers). First, Obama, does have a legacy....but, it is not's called Donald J. Trump!!! Second, the lack of low income Blacks, Hispanics and other minorities was quite notable. And...there was not a "blue collar...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — Thousands of people lined up outside McCormick Place in the bitter cold Saturday morning to get free tickets to President Barack Obama’s farewell speech next week. The Obama administration finished distributing the tickets in less than three hours after the first ones were given out. Lines snaked through two buildings, and outside onto the plaza, with many people arriving before dawn. Some huddled under blankets over their heavy winter clothing, to keep warm amid single-digit temperatures. People waiting for tickets said they wanted to be part of history. “It’s well worth it. I got my golden ticket,...

    (CNN) President Barack Obama will deliver his farewell address to the nation on January 10 from his home city of Chicago, the President announced in a statement Monday. "I'm thinking about them as a chance to say thank you for this amazing journey, to celebrate the ways you've changed this country for the better these past eight years, and to offer some thoughts on where we all go from here," Obama wrote. President Obama said he was following the precedent set by George Washington, who penned a farewell address to the American people over 220 years ago.

    WASHINGTON — Minority Leader Harry Reid bid farewell to the Senate Thursday after 30 years in the chamber and more than a decade as top Democrat, a remarkable run during which he shepherded key Obama administration legislation including the sweeping health care law. But Reid leaves with his Democrats stuck in the minority despite his best efforts, and Republicans and President-elect Donald Trump making plans to repeal President Barack Obama's signature law as their first order of business next year. In an uncharacteristically lengthy and personal farewell speech on the Senate floor, Reid warned of "a new gilded age" ahead...

    Watching the livestream of Monty Python's last ever performance on GOLD, it was impossible not to experience a tingle of sadness. So this was it, the final performance by the most influential comedy troupe of all time. Forty-odd years since Monty Python's Flying Circus revolutionized television humour and unleashed a legion of surreal catchphrases John Cleese, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones and Michael Palin departed the stage at London's O2 Arena to the strains of their darkly hilarious (or is it hilariously dark?) anthem Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life. Watching the swan-song was a 15,000 live...

    Taken from the highest ranks of the clergy, popes should be among the best living pastors, biblical scholars, and theologians. That this has often not been the case is obvious enough throughout history, as any well-informed Roman Catholic will concede. (More than a few instances of corruption and heresy may be found on the Protestant side as well.) However, Benedict XVI has regularly been impressive on these counts. Living alongside Protestants in Germany, he often engages Reformation views with more sympathy and knowledge than most—especially more than many Protestants who convert to Rome and trade on caricatures of the evangelical...

    In 1982, operatives from the USSR’s Committee for State Security– known internationally as the KGB– celebrated the procurement of a very elusive bit of Western technology. The Soviets were developing a highly lucrative pipeline to carry natural gas across the expanse of Siberia, but they lacked the software to manage the complex array of pumps, valves, turbines, and storage facilities that the system would require. The United States possessed such software, but the US government had predictably turned down their Cold War opponent’s request to purchase the product. Never ones to allow the limitations of the law to dictate their...
