    "... advice that Sharpton thinks Donald Trump could use now." James Brown said to me, “Reverend, let me tell you something…. There’s a difference between the lounge act and the acts that play the main room.” We’re at Caesar’s Palace. I’m about 19 - 20 years old. And I said, “What do you mean?” You’ve got to be ready. You gotta have choreography. You gotta be rehearsed. You gotta have polish, Sharpton said Brown told him. “[But] when you get on the main stage, Reverend, whatever you did to get out [of] the lounge, don’t do that on the main...

    Freedom of religion -- the ability to practice our faith without fear of persecution -- is a basic right that we as Americans hold dearly. But what we also cherish -- and have fought tremendously to achieve -- is the equal protection of the right of all to eat, shop, walk, work and live where we choose without discrimination.

    “Empire” star Terrence Howard has strong opinions about the use of the N-word on their hit Fox TV show. Though the actor differs from costar Taraji P. Henson, who said earlier today she’s against the use of the word, Howard thinks it’s time to get real. The Oscar nominee wants to drop the stigma surrounding the word which he believes would make the Lee Daniels hip-hop drama feel more authentic.

In fact, Jackson Lee waved a bag of lollipops during a Thursday House Homeland Security Field Hearing in McAllen, Texas, and said she took bags of such lollipops to the illegal immigrant children in detention centers during recent visits.

    August, 2009 FOX has annouced that its popular show HOUSE will be canceled and will not have its 2009 season televised as planned. Due to Obamacare restrictions, delays, rationing and age-to-benefit studies, the show simply can't be done. Writers & producers have concluded that each episode would take 10-20 times longer while necessary medical tests, needed to move the plot/story line, have now become unavailable. Episodes dealing with elderly patients were scrapped as their stories constantly ended with either pain pill overdoses or euthanasia. Episodes involving unborn children with defects/complications were constantly ending with an abortions. There were also too...

    The love of my life is seeing other women. It started innocently enough, a bite to eat, a stroll through the park -- the stuff I never have time for. Then came the private jokes, the pet names, the stolen kisses, the bubble baths. At first I was crushed. What did these women have that I didn't? Sure, they're gorgeous, but I happen to look very nice in navy; and, yes, they're bright, but I scored unbelievably high on the SATs ... if you don't count the half with all that math. I told myself it was just a fling,...

    Open Letter to the Illinois Republican Party Re: The Fall of the Illinois Republican Party For the past few years I've watched the Illinois Republican Party fall into complete disarray. First, there was the defeat of Jim Ryan. A Chicago Democrat ran on the platform to clean up Springfield and the voters bought it. That should have rang with earth shattering result in the IL GOP, but it didn't. Then came along with the 2004 race with the Jack Ryan / Alan Keyes fiasco. Going into the 2006 election with a very defeatable incumbent governor, the IL GOP seems to...

The World Water Week in Stockholm will be told the growth in demand for meat and dairy products is unsustainable. Animals need much more water than grain to produce the same amount of food, and ending malnutrition and feeding even more mouths will take still more water. Scientists say the world will have to change its consumption patterns to have any realistic hope of feeding itself. Losing the race The World Water Week conference is held annually in...

Police arrested the 50-year-old Chinese man after he tried to run away when challenged by an off-duty officer, the late edition of the Yomiuri Shimbun reported on Friday. "I'd never have guessed police lived here," the article reported the man as saying after he was pinned down by the officer. The unmarked building had been rented by the Tokyo...
