    ‘‘Liberal’’ has long been a dirty word to the American political right. It may be shortened, in the parlance of the Limbaugh Belt, to ‘‘libs,’’ or expanded to the offensive portmanteau ‘‘libtards.’’ But its target is always clear. For the people who use these epithets, liberals are, basically, everyone who leans to the left: big-spending Democrats with their unisex bathrooms and elaborate coffee. This is still how polls classify people, placing them on a neat spectrum from ‘‘extremely conservative’’ to ‘‘extremely liberal.’’ Over the last few years, though — and especially 2016 — there has been a surge of the...

    "The foundation of every state is the education of its youth."(Diogenes, Greek Philosopher, 412 323 BC) "All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of empires depends on the education of youth." (Aristotle, Greek Philosopher, 384 322 BC) "What is being taught in the classroom today to the children will determine the course of the nation 25 years from now."(Lincoln) I'm betting this MORON came out of the government schools! I'm also betting that this nation is closer to the drain than at any time in my lifetime. "YOU'RE FIRED!" Thus sayeth...

    A 23-year-old Hoover man charged Monday in the weekend shotgun shooting death of his mother is no stranger to law enforcement officers. Devarta Dedre Thomas, an aspiring rapper, had been arrested on crimes ranging from burglary to robbery, and just months ago stirred the ire of cops throughout the Birmingham area when he posted graphic photos on social media over the summer, mocking a Birmingham police detective after he had been pistol-whipped. In fact, investigators say, his mother, Tawanda Denise Thomas, was killed Sunday afternoon while scolding him about his lifestyle and choices and actions. "Mrs. Thomas actually came to...

    Saturday Night Live Mocks Obamacare in Hilarious Skit Sep. 29, 2013 8:45am Oliver Darcy Obamacare, Saturday Night Live, Video Late night comedy show Saturday Night Live turned the tables on President Barack Obama and devoted an entire skit last night aimed at mocking his signature healthcare law. The roughly seven-minute skit depicted an actor playing the president delivering a speech dedicated to showcasing the supposed benefits of the healthcare law. However, as individuals were called up one-by-one to testify in favor of Obamacare, they instead delivered some surprising news. “I am psyched for Obamacare,” one woman said, explaining “now that...

    The National Security Agency, the secretive federal department under fire for spying on U.S. citizens, is now accused of crushing the free-speech rights of a businessman clowning around about the NSA., a company that markets “freedom products for liberty lovers,” says the NSA is using a claim of copyright infringement to stop it from selling T-shirts and other products making fun of the Big Brother agency. “Two months ago the NSA’s lawyers came after our parodies of the rogue agency and forced our host to take them down,” the company said Friday on its Facebook page. At issue is...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike. The rodeo clown won't be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they're also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday's event. The entertainment during the bull riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside....

    U.S. Army veteran Jared Goering was kicked off the North Wildwood boardwalk Thursday night because he had his service dog by his side. A North Wildwood police officer issued Jared and his wife a summons because of the dog. Goering said, “I expected to get more respect from him because of the jobs that we both have to do." "He mockingly asked if all veterans get service dogs," said Jared’s wife, Sally Goering, “his dog is medically necessary and he is a service dog." Jared and his wife Sally say the incident occurred on the 26th street North Wildwood boardwalk....

    Upon watching footage of Hillary Clinton mocking Herman Cain in Afghan president Hamid Karzai’s presence, one could wonder: would she really want to stack her accomplishments up against Cain’s? I mean real accomplishment – not being the poster girl for nepotism and cultural affirmative action. But before outlining the distinguished career of the esteemed erstwhile Mizz Rodham, let’s review what was said to Mr. Karzai (another individual, incidentally, who owes his position to an American president).

    WASHINGTON - The Obama administration's repeated low estimates of the BP oil spill undermined public confidence in the government's entire cleanup effort, leaders of a White House-appointed commission declared at an investigatory hearing yesterday. One likened the mistakes to Custer's disastrous decisions at Little Big Horn. Federal officials botched the government's response, a local official and government and university scientists contended as the commission focused on the questions of who was in charge and how much oil spewed out of the well. Eventually, U.S. officials said the spill was about 60times bigger than originally estimated. Instead of 42,000 gallons a...
