    An American seized in Yemen in a sweep of suspected al-Qaida members had been a laborer at six U.S. nuclear power plants, and authorities are investigating whether he had access to sensitive information or materials that would be useful to terrorists. Sharif Mobley, 26, worked for contractors at plants in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Maryland from 2002 to 2008, mostly hauling materials and setting up scaffolding, plant officials said. Nuclear Regulatory Commission spokesman Neil Sheehan said Friday that investigations are under way into which areas Mobley entered. But he noted that areas containing nuclear fuel are tightly controlled, and that...

    Family doctors have criticized the Government for seeking to "nationalize" general practice with plans to extend free GP care to all children. Speakers at the National Association of GPs conference called for a campaign of resistance to plans for a progressive extension of GP medical cards to all children. The Government plans to extend the scheme to children aged under 12 years later this year and to all children shortly after. Limerick GP Charlie Gavin said he signed the contract out of fear. "My fear was my practice would not continue, I had a letter from the Government saying they...

    Limericks inspired by recent events In Texas they held a cool contest, To see who could draw cartoons the best. Two up to no good were fragged where they stood. Just chalk outlines, no need for an arrest. You can't draw the prophet mohammed. It's Blasphemy the jihadies said. They crashed the event, Then hit the cement. Cuz in Texas they will shoot you dead. Free speech is an American thing We can draw, write, publish or sing. Outlines and a stain Are all that remain. Of Muzzies on a short Jihad fling.

    In clear violation of op-ed protocol, this week Im suspending prose and having a little good, clean, limericky fun at liberals expense because well, because they just make it so darn easy. (Warning: Some are bad and others worse. Side effects may include groaning, nausea, vomiting and involuntary eye-rolling.) Here they are in no particular order. Happy New Year, and may God bless you in 2014! (Yes, you too, my liberal friends.)

    What happens when a former US Marine becomes a Franciscan friar and then goes on to found a monastery in the toughest district of Irelands toughest city? In 2007, Father Sylvester and a small group of American friars from the Bronx, N.Y., did just that when they arrived in Limerick, Ireland. They left behind their former lives as a teacher, a soldier, a punk-rock singer, and a rapper to transform lives through prayer. The urban district they live in, Moyross a sea of burned-down and boarded-up houses is always in the news for the wrong reasons: drugs, shootings,...

    Since countless artists and poets and celebrities have paid tribute in prose to the boy marxist, and since many school districts have turned Black History Month into an indoctrination lesson for Dear Reader's greatness in song, I figgered it wasn't fair for the left to have all the fun. Mmmm, mmmmm, mmmmm. SO this is the first annual Obama Poetry Contest for Rightwingers. I'll start with a piece composed in honor of Obama's magical foreign policy towards ally Israel:
