    Fox News ^ | March 26, 2016
    Unbelievable Video. Call it the parking job seen 'round the web. A video has gone viral of D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton executing an objectively poor parking job -- even by Washington standards. The incident, and video, were first reported by Roll Call. A tipster was apparently on the scene and watched as Norton angled her car into a diagonal spot near Capitol Hill, ending up practically perpendicular to the surrounding vehicles. The tipster told Roll Call this was around the time of Afghan President Ashraf Ghani's address to Congress on Wednesday.

    Some things in life are just too good to handle. Quincy Kroner had that exact feeling on March 13 when he met his local heroes -- the neighborhood garbage men, Mark Davis and Eddie Washington. The Cincinnati 2-year-old has been fascinated by the garbage truck “since about the age he could walk,” the toddler’s father, Ollie Kroner, told The Huffington Post in an email. But this was the first time he met the garbage men in person, and it was all too much for him -- resulting in the adorably priceless photo above. “He was all smiles as the garbage...

    The “Best helicopter door gunner of all time” died and went to heaven. St. Peter greeted him there and said “Welcome to heaven! Your terminal assignment orders indicate you were the best door gunner in human history and did wonderful things for your fellow crew members, your unit, and your country your entire life. For that reason I am authorized to let you choose in which part of heaven you would like to spend eternity.” “Well”, the gunner said, “I’d love to bunk somewhere where I will never see another helicopter pilot – they are loud, contemptible, and generally a...

    ... In so many ways, to read Jim Berry was to meet Jim Berry. "Berry's World," the syndicated single-panel feature that he drew for 40 years, beginning in 1963, was a remarkably steady stream of thoughtful observational humor that — like the unfussy art itself — rarely seemed to strain for the laugh. Each gag, as steady as a top golfer's approach shots, just "landed." Precision meets concision ... Mr. Berry died last Friday in Boynton Beach, Fla., at age 83 ...

    03/20/2015 6:37:25 PM PDT · by W. · 42 replies ^ | 20 Mar 2015 | Juliet Eilperin
    On Monday when Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani visits Camp David, the presidential retreat in Maryland will once again serve as the venue for important geopolitical negotiations on seemingly in­trac­table issues, a role it has played for more than seven decades. But as Secretary of State John F. Kerry and other Cabinet members host the Afghan president, one major U.S. figure will not be present — President Obama. The president’s absence is just one signal of how the role of the cloistered compound in the Catoctin mountains has changed under this president, a city dweller who prefers gym workouts and golf...

    We are Robyn and Michelle Lytle–a Chicago-based couple on a mission. Michelle came up with the idea for The TaTa Top in response to a story Robyn told her about an incident at a Chicago beach. Robyn had been hosting two Dutch women as a cultural exchange, and they were not familiar with the topless laws in the U.S. When they went to visit one of Chicago’s beaches, they didn’t think twice about running into the lake topless for a quick swim on a hot summer day. Chaos ensued, and a male lifeguard told them they had to leave unless...

Dennis Miller - Just ordered a black coffee at Starbucks and was informed that "de-creamed" was the preferred term.~~~~~~~~~~~~With the best intentions, Starbucks recently launched a new campaign to get people talking about race. The campaign was promoted by their CEO Howard Schultz and involves a barista writing #RaceTogether on your morning cup of coffee and engaging you in a conversation about race relations.Now, that might’ve sounded like a good idea in the boardroom, but the reality is people aren’t at their best in the early morning before they’ve had their cup of the strong...

    WASHINGTON (TG) — Frustrated and confused by the notion that a platform based on putting national interests first could win an election, President Obama issued a statement today warning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu not to “assume he has a mandate just because he got more votes.” “Obviously, the Likud party had a good night. And they deserve credit for running good campaigns. Beyond that, I’ll leave it to all of you and the professional pundits to pick through yesterday’s results,” said Obama. “Still, as the U.S. president, I have a unique and global responsibility to try and make the...

    The White House announced several long-anticipated overseas appearances by Obama will be "rescheduled indefinitely" following a series of telephone calls between the free democratic republics of North Korea, China, Cuba, and Iran and President Obama's chief staff, political officers, and consultants. "All four countries cancelled" (or "deferred" as Obama's spokeperson later issued in a corrected statement) the long-anticipated but secret Obama overseas campaign rallies following Bibi Netanyahoo's electoral victory in Israel on Tuesday over his more liberal opponents. These cancellations, all blamed on a fear that their next election might be lost following an Obama endorsement, came as a surprise...

We had ISIS growing and growing during the Bush years with extremely violent intentions,that would of been "Blamed On Bush"!!!. But Oops Again, Obama just remembered? and now he is bringing it up?

The tips were introduced as part of Mrs. Obama’s “#GimmeFive challenge,” which is encouraging people to come up with five ways to be healthier for the fifth anniversary of Let’s Move. President Barack Obama’s five ways to be healthy are jogging on stage to give a campaign speech, shooting a basketball, playing tennis, climbing the stairs to Air Force One, and lifting a baby, according to a video announcing the challenge.

Now the cult comedy favorite is returning to the small screen thanks to Twin Cities Public Television. That's right, the irreverent show is public TV fare. TPT will be airing four classic episodes of the beloved low-budget show starting on March 21 (10 p.m.) and for the three following Saturdays.

    Developer Erick Garcia created a game based on his reality, but when he showed it to people, some found it offensive.The first Latino-themed gaming app created by Latinos has reached nearly 1,000 paid downloads since it was released last week. However, the game received mixed reviews about the way it portrays Latinos. "I don't really like the game," said Sonya, a Highland Park mother. "Kids might feel that they have to follow stereotypes like Mexicans should be cholos (gangsters)."

    At the end of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s Chappaqua street sits a for-sale sign for a used e-mail server with a clean hard drive. It includes the Clintons’ home address and instructs interested buyers to, “See Bill.” Gary Murphy — channeling his inner Jon Stewart, he says — was irked by former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s reason for using a private server set up in her New York home to do all her e-mailing, both for personal conversations and State Department business. So, Murphy, 44, who lives in Chappaqua, about two miles away from the Clintons’ home, was driving...
