    Queens teacher suing city claiming he was beaten up by a first-grader ‘Tiny terror,’ 6, unleashes wrath at school A hulking Queens gym teacher and former college football player claims a pupil fractured his ankle, injured his knee and forced him to go to a shrink for stress — even though the kid was only 50 pounds and in first grade. Burly, 220-pound PS 330 teacher John Webster, 27, said a 4-foot-2 Rodrigo Carpio, 6, also kicked and pinched the Elmhurst school’s principal, a security officer and another teacher during a rampage in April. “It’s sort of like an angel-devil...

    Until this week, the general impression of the Deepwater Horizon blowout in the Gulf has been that the explosion took everyone by surprise, and that neither BP nor a dysfunctional MMS had any idea that the well had reached a critical stage. Two days ago, however, Bloomberg reported that both BP and MMS were well aware of the high risk of a blowout at that particular well. BP and its subcontractor Transocean had in fact been fighting against a blowout for over two months, and MMS was well aware of the situation:

    That's right, people. President Kickass, after spending weeks talking about how he is going to bash heads and figure out whose ass to kick...spent a whole 20 minutes talking to the people ultimately at fault, and in an ironic twist of fate, in charge of stopping said gulf oil leak.

    Just whose ass is the President wanting to kick? After publicly declaring this week that he needs to know whose ass to kick regarding the Gulf disaster, perhaps he should start with himself. Fifty plus days of oil flowing freely into the Gulf of Mexico and headed to the shores of the U.S. and the President can do nothing more than continue to blame BP. After all this time we are well aware that this is the fault of BP, but day after day the blame game continues and the oil just keeps heading for shore. Meanwhile very little seems...

    Massive titanium fire explodes in South L.A. SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Firefighters are battling a large titanium fire in South Los Angeles that began with an explosion on Friday morning. Authorities responded to the "major emergency fire" at a recycling plant at Slauson and Central avenues at about 11 a.m. There was originally a report of a firefighter missing, but authorities have confirmed that the firefighter is OK. There's been a report of one civilian injury, but no further information is available on the victim's condition. Firefighters are asking the Department of Water and Power to de-energize the high...
  • PRUDEN: Would Obama settle for kicking a mule?

    When Barack Obama says he wants to "kick somebody's ass" over the Gulf oil spill, we presume he may be willing to settle for a mule, since mules are easier to find than asses and provide bigger targets. But he has to be careful whose ass to kick. Pick the wrong one, and he'll get a swift kick in return. The Secret Service would shoot the offending ass and ask later whose it was. But still, it's undignified for a president of the United States to suffer an ass-kicking. The president is an elegant Ivy Leaguer, after all, equally at...

    Leadership: The president says he went to the Gulf to find out whose derriere to kick. After he gets his foot out of his own mouth, perhaps he can talk to us about that Coast Guard memo. Scapegoating has become a hallmark of this administration. Certainly BP was responsible for the safe operation and maintenance of Deepwater Horizon. But after an accident in federal waters the federal government, which has a plan to save the entire planet from greenhouse gases, had no plan to save the Gulf from a single gushing well, with the possible exception of finger-pointing. In this...

    It looks like those who want an angry-man president may get their wish. Giving details about his handling of the crisis, Mr. Obama said that he met with Gulf Coast fishermen to get the views of the people most affected by the disaster so he knows "whose ass to kick."... But in the botched response to the Deepwater Horizon disaster, the president has come across as disengaged and incompetent. The new tough-guy Obama says he would have fired BP CEO Tony Hayward for saying he would "like [his] life back" from dealing with the crisis. This from Mr. Obama, who...

    Imagine a world where a natural or man made disaster happened under President George W. Bush’s watch. He isn’t responsible for the disaster of course, however the people who are directly connected to the disaster were also among his top donors and his Administration gave them special favors which are tied to the disaster. Add to that imagine if President Bush’s closest advisor Karl Rove also received a rent free apartment from those directly connected to the catastrophe. Then envision after the disaster the Bush Administration covered up how large the calamity actually was. How would the press react? Well...

    I guess Barack Obama is now subscribing to the Bill Maher theory of how a "real black president" should act: He's looking for some ass to kick! And the DUmmies are urging him on. Never mind that BO is not actually DOING anything about the BP oil spill. They just want Oilbama to act angry and outraged--in other words, more like a DUmmie.

    Heeding the calls to let his Black-side show and in an obvious staged demonstration of toughness the president of the United States dropped all pretenses at being professorial and let his raw gritty street side out. Well as best, he could! No he didn’t pull a gun from his trousers and drop the “F” bomb à la Bill Maher, but he did give the interviewer at MSNBC a stiff talking to about the Gulf oil spill, by golly! In what is perhaps the funniest thing that the teleprompter has ever told president Soetoro to do, president Soetoro shows that he...

The Nine Network entertainment editor awarded the movie just one star out of four while speaking on the TODAY show this morning. MOVIEFIX: Interview with 'Kick Ass' director "I can't possibly encourage you to go and see this overhyped, inappropriate sensationalism that glamourises kids with guns," he said.

If I'm elected President, I will… Require members of Congress to work out on the Total Gym 15 minutes each day – or else they can't vote on anything. Cut spending by dismissing the Secret Service, at least for my eight years in office (why would I need them?). Resurrect Bruce Lee and appoint him head of homeland security (OK, the CIA and FBI too).

    Hindu mob attacks U.S. missionaries in Bombay BOMBAY (Reuters) - Angry Hindu youths beat three American missionaries and tried to kidnap one as they held a bible studies class in Bombay, police said on Monday. About 30 or 40 men attacked the three, part of a group of eight, on Saturday night because they thought the missionaries were trying to convert Hindus in the Indian financial capital. The three were treated for bruises and cuts at a hospital but were not seriously injured, police said. "While this kind of attack is rare in Bombay, the police must take serious action...

Creeping silently through the bush, setting elaborate ambushes or conducting surveillance, Australia's Special Air Service troopers earned the respect even of the enemy. BY RORY CALLINAN But in Afghanistan, Australian special forces were something of a novelty to their US commanders. On one map in the main US command center in Afghanistan, they were denoted by a cut-out picture of Australian celebrity crocodile hunter, Steve Irwin. "It was pretty disheartening, says one trooper.

    The first live show for 36 years by Eric Clapton's blues/rock "power trio" may have attracted the attentions of the media, but it has had difficulty snaring anyone under 40; young people are conspicuous by their absence from the bars and foyers of the Royal Albert Hall. The atmosphere is less like a rock concert than a corporate hospitality tent at Wimbledon. Paunchy men in sports jackets clink ice in gin and tonics, and mumsy ladies fan themselves with pricey souvenir programmes. Presumably some of them were here the last time Cream played the Royal Albert Hall, squinting at the...

    The residents of a small Iraqi village have killed five insurgents who had attacked them for voting in last weekend's national elections. Several other insurgents were also wounded. The insurgents raided the village of al-Mudhiryah south of Baghdad after warning its inhabitants not to vote in the election. The villagers fought back, killing five of the insurgents and wounding eight others. The insurgents' cars were then set alight. Al-Mudhiryah's tribal sheikh says his people are sick of being threatened by Islamic extremists.

    In the huge, muddy field which serves as a forward base, Major-General Richard Natonski prepared his troops for the battle ahead. 'We're goin' in to raise the Eye-raqi flag above Falluja - to give it back to the Fallujans,' he shouted, the eyes of the entire 1st Marine Division on him. Pausing to remember the marine corps who fought in Vietnam, Korea and the two world wars, they then stood to attention and launched into the marine hymn. 'Only two songs send a shiver up my spine,' said one marine, his face scored with the pockmarks and confidence of youth....
