    President Obama’s budget, to be released next week, will limit how much wealthy individuals – like Mitt Romney – can keep in IRAs and other retirement accounts. The proposal would save around $9 billion over a decade, a senior administration official said, while also bringing more fairness to the tax code. The senior administration official said that wealthy taxpayers can currently “accumulate many millions of dollars in these accounts, substantially more than is needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving.” Under the plan, a taxpayer’s tax-preferred retirement account, like an IRA, could not finance more than $205,000 per year...

    Halloween: Behind the Mask Every year, on the evening of Oct. 31, millions of families celebrate a distinctly odd holiday known as Halloween. For your own good, you need to know what lurks behind the mask of Halloween. by Jerold Aust Halloween is undoubtedly one of the strangest holidays people celebrate, with its symbolism of witches, devils, skeletons, bats and black cats. Is it not a little bizarre that children are taught to dress up as ghosts and monsters to go from house to house demanding "trick or treat!" (with the threat of a trick or prank constituting a playful...

    Milosevic feared he was being poisoned: lawyer March, 11 2005 BELGRADE (Reuters) - Former Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic feared he was being poisoned in his detention cell in The Hague, his lawyer Zdenko Tomanovic said on Saturday hours after the tribunal announced Milosevic's death. "Today, I have filed an official request to the tribunal to have the autopsy carried out in Moscow, having in mind his claims yesterday that he was being poisoned in the jail," Tomanovic told reporters in The Hague. Acting on a request from Milosevic, Tomanovic said he had made a request for protection for his client...

    (and damned long titles) | JesseP
    In FR News today, the forum formerly known as “Free” Republic went downhill at an amazing speed. Moderators insanely restrict the postings of fellow conservatives and this long time FReeper JesseP will have no more. The $72,000 pledge drive, told to me by Jim Robinson himself is primarily going to fund his personal expenses along with two of the mods. In other words when the wife receives a gift, it is paid for by fellow FRreepers donations. This Ex FReeper will now be calling his bank and canceling the donation made this weekend and it is suggested that others do...

    Moose checks into hospital emergency room Tuesday, June 28, 2005 by Jeffrey Hope Anchorage, Alaska - The emergency room at Alaska Regional Hospital has seen just about everything, but nobody was prepared for the patient who dropped in this morning.   It was about 6:30 a.m. and a young moose decided to check into the ER. The scene was caught on the hospital's security camera.   Dr. Don Hudson was on duty at the time. The videotape shows him taking a quick look at the patient, then wisely going for a second opinion.   The moose spent more than a...

    It was a velvet revolution: a non-violent, quiet world change that began a few decades ago, right under the nose of dog owners. The most telltale signs were discerned in the United States seven years ago, when the veterinary service of Washington State estimated - mainly by relying on data on the quantity of pet food purchased in the state that year - that the United States had over 70 million house cats, as compared with 55 million dogs. In this respect, the New World lagged behind the Old: in England, surveys conducted as early as 1993 found that about...
