  • Man who begs for money on New York streets revealed to be legendary comedian living in $3.5m home

    10/14/2011 12:36:41 PM PDT · by Lazamataz · 78 replies
    was once known as 'The World's Foremost Authority'. Professor Irwin Corey, comedian, actor and left-wing political activist, strolls along Manhattan's East 35th Street pan-handling every day, seven days a week, for the last 17 years. Of course professor Corey - who has enjoyed a long and illustrious career spanning Broadway, television, theatre and comedy clubs - does not need the money. In fact he is not even homeless, despite his scruffy, scrawny appearance, but has an apartment in an affluent area of New York which he believes to be worth $3.5million. His reasons for posing as a homeless down-and-outer and...

    Return to the Article May 29, 2011The Sad Consequences of 'Shacking Up'Trevor Thomas GA_googleFillSlot("AT_300_250_bottom"); Recently that Hollywood scholar Cameron Diaz gave us an illustration of the secular/godless worldview on marriage: "I do [think marriage is dead]. I think we have to make our own rules. I don't think we should live our lives in relationships based off old traditions that don't suit our world any longer." The current generation in America is shunning marriage for cohabitation at an unprecedented rate. According to the 2010 edition of the State of Our Unions report by the National Marriage Project at the...

    Undies in a twist over 'Weiner wiener' by Ginger Adams Otis May 28, 2011 Call it Weiner-gate. Twitter followers of Rep. Anthony Weiner were shocked when a lewd photo popped up on his official account late Friday night. The photo of a bulging male member cloaked in gray briefs was directed to a single Twitter user -- but on view to all 45,000 of his followers. The wiener shot was the work of an unknown wag -- a computer hacker who gained access to the pol's passwords, his spokesman told The Post. "Anthony's accounts on both Facebook and Twitter were...

    A 16-year-old high school student says she is facing online threats after calling into question Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann's knowledge of the Constitution. What started as a harmless -- if cheeky -- way of pointing out Bachmann's historical mistakes has turned darker for New Jersey high school sophomore Amy Meyers, the Courier Post Online reports. Last month, Meyers posted an open letter online challenging Bachmann to a constitutional debate. "I have found quite a few of your statements regarding the Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect,...
  • UK National Health Service Dangerous for Elderly

    Denial of treatment for those deemed “too old to invest in” isn’t the only hazard faced by those entrusted to the United Kingdom’s National Health Service (NHS). Dehydration and starvation also take a toll. A recent study by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) indicated that dehydration contributes to 800 deaths and malnutrition to 300 deaths per year among those housed in NHS hospitals. Spokesperson for the Hospital Workers Union, Mildred Ratched, placed the blame primarily on the doctors. “Our people are just following orders,” Ratched said. “If the doctors wanted these patients to have food and water they should have...

    Patrick Exploring GOP Senate Run In Texas Texas state Sen. Dan Patrick (R) announced Friday on Laura Ingraham's radio show that he is forming an exploratory committee to run for the seat being vacated by retiring-Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchsion (R-TX), potentially joining an already crowded Republican field. Patrick, a Houston-based conservative talk show host, brings another Tea Party-friendly voice to the race. "If I decide to enter the race I will be the only candidate with a proven conservative voting record and a long history of fighting for conservative causes," Patrick said in a statement to Hotline On Call.

  • GOP Illinois Senator Pamela Althoff "sets the record straight" on “Illinois DREAM Act” bill

    Sen. Althoff sets the record straight on “Illinois DREAM Act” bill. Recently, the Illinois Senate approved legislation (Senate Bill 2185) aimed at allowing student immigrants who have a valid taxpayer ID to invest in their college education – this legislation has been the subject of much misinformation on the Internet and in the media. The bill requires the Illinois Student Assistance Commission to create an Illinois DREAM Fund that will provide scholarships funded entirely from private contributions – no Illinois tax dollars will be directed toward these scholarships. In addition, to be eligible for the program, a student must be...

    The Hill ^ | May 28, 2011 | Bernie Becker
    A draft redistricting plan in Michigan would place two incumbent Democratic congressmen in the same district, the Detroit News reports. The Republican plan would, as many observers have expected, place longtime Rep. Sandy Levin and Rep. Gary Peters, now in his second term, in the same suburban Detroit district. Michigan is set to lose one House seat in the next Congress, giving it 14 seats. Republicans hold all the power in the redistricting process, controlling the governorship and both houses of the state legislature. Some have suggested that Peters would run for another office rather than challenge more senior Democrats...

    Stalking-horse definition: 1)Means to disguising a real objective 2)A deceptive candidate who is on the ballot or enters an election only to divide the opposition (eg conservative vote) so that his friend or ally can win the election coming up the middle In sports, there is an old saying: A team doesn't control its own destiny. In other words a team finds that it has to rely on another team not doing well or screwing up in order to advance to the playoffs themselves. In respect to the GOP primaries, CONSERVATIVES do control their own destiny. Roughly for every 1...

    She’s become the P.T. Barnum of politics. She’s the ringmaster of a political media circus who commands attention wherever she goes. Next week Palinpalooza kicks off another round of frenzy and speculation. What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object? That is the Palin paradox. With pundits and the public atwitter, Palin begins her “One Nation” tour this weekend at the annual Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally in Washington aboard a shiny new cross-country coach boldly emblazoned: “One Nation. Under God. Indivisible. With Liberty and Justice for All.” Next week, iconic images of Palin on a hawg will light...

  • Obama Administration Eyeing Gun Control 'Under the Radar,' Groups Warn

    The Obama administration, after keeping gun control on the back burner for over two years, is prompting concern among gun rights groups that it's slowly starting to squeeze the trigger on tighter regulation. In the wake of the January shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and 18 others, President Obama remained mostly quiet on the firearms front as lawmakers clamored for new restrictions. But the president has since made a public call for tougher background checks. The Justice Department launched a series of meetings with officials and advocates to examine gun control policy. And while gun-control bills in Congress have...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 05/28/2011 | Maeve Reston
    Despite their different backgrounds and resumes, some voters are uneasy about the possibility that Michele Bachmann will face the same harsh trajectory as Sarah Palin. In Iowa's conservative circles, Michele Bachmann's name seemed to be on everyone's lips last week. With a GOP presidential field that has left voters wanting more, the provocative "tea party" favorite arrived Friday seemingly well positioned to snap up supporters of 2008 Iowa caucus winner Mike Huckabee after he declined to run for 2012. Her visit here to attend several GOP fundraisers and private meetings with activists generated a flurry of speculation that the Minnesota...

He's buried many hundreds of miles away, and I haven't see his grave since the stone was placed. Today is Decoration Day, and a relative was kind enough to take a photo and email it to me, which I appreciated tremendously.

    Few would place bets on whether Palin is running for president By Niall Stanage - 05/28/11 04:48 PM ET Sarah Palin has once again taken center stage and delighted her supporters with the announcement that she will begin a high-profile bus tour in Washington on Sunday. The tour has an obvious — and presumably intentional — resemblance to a campaign jaunt. But many people on both sides of the political divide remain skeptical that she will run, or that she has a viable path to the Republican presidential nomination if she does so. Then again, placing bets on Palin’s plans...

    As we have often stated in these columns, Sarah Palin is consistently underrated by Republicans, Democrats and media alike as a possible contender for the White House. Now with the Republican field imploding in the past few weeks, suddenly Palin is back in the limelight again. Truth is she has never given up her ambition. She looks at this Republican field and sees huge weaknesses, from Mitt Romney's flip flops to Newt Gingrich's womanizing to Tim Pawlenty's lack of charisma. Sure she ceded the stage to Donald Trump's ill-fated run, but it was always clear that Trump would eventually slink...
