  • Walter Williams: Things I Don't Understand (Great read)

    Creators Syndicate ^ | September 3, 2014 | Walter E. Williams
    There are things that really puzzle me. Some life insurance companies charge lower premiums if you haven't made a life-shortening lifestyle choice. Being a nonsmoker is one of them. Actuarially, that makes sense because the life expectancy for smokers is at least 10 years shorter than for nonsmokers. Insurance company policies charge higher premiums to those who are obese. The National Institutes of Health reports that those with a body mass index greater than 40 have a six- to 14-year lower life expectancy. Again, actuarially, that makes sense. Indeed, there's a strong advocacy for higher life insurance, as well as...

    A Hamas-Israel joke. Hamas decided to send a gift to the President of Israel . They sent him an elaborate box with a note . The President opened the box and saw that the content was feces ( shit). He opened the note which said “ This is for you and your people!" Since the President of Israel is a wise and experienced person he decided to reciprocate by sending his gift to Hamas with a personal note. The leader of Hamas were very surprised to receive the parcel and opened it very carefully, suspecting that it might contain a...

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Of all the names that it would be embarrassing for an MSNBC network host to blank on, Rick Perry's would have to be at the top of the list. How countless many times has the Lean Forward network had fun at Perry's expense over his "whoops" moment during a 2012 presidential debate? But that unfortunate fate befell Jose Diaz-Balart today, hosting his own new MSNBC show. The topic was the way in which Ted Cruz and Perry would potentially fight over Texas donor dollars if they were to both run for president. Diaz-Balart got Cruz's name without problem, but when...

    Tiffany Bruce of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania had saved up for months to buy a life-size Barack Obama statue for her front porch — and then someone stole it. The loss of the statue, which cost a whopping $1,249, sent Bruce to the hospital, WNEP reports. “I just wanted to wait until I got it on sale, so I started buying my furniture before I purchased the statue, but I had to have it,” said Bruce. “I peeked my head out the door and Obama’s gone and I kind of went into a panic. I couldn’t breathe, and I had to go...

    Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has denied he’s not going to make a third bid for the White House but on Tuesday he left open a very small window. “I know you’re going to press, but you know, this is something we gave a lot of thought to when early on I decided we’re not going to be running this time,” Romney said in an interview with Hugh Hewitt. “And again, we said look, I had the chance of running. I didn’t win. Someone else has a better chance than I do. And that’s what we believe, and that’s...

    Cause of New Mexico nuclear waste accident remains a mystery "A 55-gallon drum of nuclear waste, buried in a salt shaft 2,150 feet under the New Mexico desert, violently erupted late on Feb. 14 and spewed mounds of radioactive white foam. The flowing mass, looking like whipped cream but laced with plutonium, went airborne, traveled up a ventilation duct to the surface and delivered low-level radiation doses to 21 workers. … The investigators are looking at a variety of materials that may have been added to the drum, including lead, tungsten, acid and even kitty litter as possible factors in...

    MADISON, Wis. – Conservative targets of a Democrat-launched John Doe investigation have described the secret probe as a witch hunt. That might not be a big enough descriptor, based on records released Friday by a federal appeals court as part of a massive document dump. Attorneys for conservative activist Eric O’Keefe and the Wisconsin Club for Growth point to subpoenas requested by John Doe prosecutors that sought records from “at least eight phone companies” believed to serve the targets of the investigation. O’Keefe and the club have filed a civil rights lawsuit against John Doe prosecutors, alleging they violated conservatives’...

A flier posted on the group’s website says that no matter the reason of the shooting for Brown, the “cause was from the Lord.” “Missouri has made itself known worldwide for three things. [Gays] e.g. Michael Sam; bestiality; and shredding the constitution in order to remove the Word of God from their streets,” the leaflet states. “Now you reap what you have to diligently sown, Missouri!

The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the author. The protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, want justice for the unarmed black teenager shot and killed there by a police officer. But the protests also reflect broader patterns of racial injustice across the country, from chronic police violence and abuse against black men to the persistent economic and social exclusion of communities of color. In one sense, the unrest in Ferguson might be calmed if the government would simply release all the...

The 39th president expressed frustration with the administration and Congress on their lack of efforts to...

So regular listeners to Gardeners’ Question Time may be horrified to discover it has been accused of peddling racial stereotypes.

One current presenter, Bob Flowerdew, rubbished the idea, calling it “ridiculous”, and asked whether experts on the show “should stop using Latin names to avoid offending the Romans”. But Dr Ben Pitcher, a senior lecturer in sociology at the University of Westminster,...

He intends to use the committee to donate contributions to like-minded Republicans. “It was set up to help fund candidates who agree with the governor’s priorities,” said spokesman Mark Miner.

    Many of you probably heard about the “Halbig” decision, in which a federal court struck a blow against Obamacare by ruling that the IRS was wrong to arbitrarily grant subsidies for health insurance policies purchased through a federal exchange. And why did the judges rule against the IRS? Well, for the simple reason that the Obamacare legislation specifically says that subsidies are only available for policies purchased through exchanges set up by state governments. My Cato colleague Michael Cannon explains: The PPACA authorizes the IRS to issue health-insurance tax credits only to taxpayers who purchase coverage “through an Exchange established...

    “Never give up, never surrender!” That’s the hokey battle cry spoken by fictional Commander Peter Taggart, but it also easily applies to the long journey to get the beloved cult film “Galaxy Quest” to the screen. In 1999 Mark Johnson, already an Oscar winner for “Rain Man,” was an independent producer with a deal at DreamWorks Studios. Johnson’s scouts had come across a screenplay called “Captain Starshine” that, by all accounts, wasn’t particularly good, but which had that killer “what if” hook.
