    One would think an entire think-tank university staff is behind Snopes. Not so. It's a couple — husband and wife. Their opinions are considered bible by countless who check out "the facts" by going to These countless include college profs, Congresspersons, the National Review writers, and masses climbing all over the grassroots.

  • 'Obamacare' is a failed experiment

    It has been one year since Obamacare was signed into law. This is the same law about which then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” It is the same law that Pelosi and her Democratic colleagues jammed through Congress. The same unpopular law that led to Democrats losing control of the House. After a year of learning what is in the law — and seeing its effect on families, small businesses and our economy — it is now clear that Obamacare is a failed experiment. Sadly,...
  • Gov. Perry Pockets Salary, Pension

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry is a so-called double dipper, collecting a state government pension and salary totaling more than $240,000. Perry’s disclosure that he “retired” this year while still governor of Texas has become somewhat of an issue in the days leading up to the GOP presidential caucuses in Iowa on Tuesday. Given New Mexico’s distaste for double dipping by public employees, I thought you might want to know more. We banned the practice for most state and local government workers in 2010. Perry, 61, filed a financial disclosure this month with the Federal Election Commission showing he is...

    GOA: Gun Owners of America ^ | Tuesday, 22 November 2011 08:18 | Staff
    Prior to the “Republican Revolution” of 1994, Rep. Newt Gingrich of Georgia had earned an A rating with Gun Owners of America. But that all changed in 1995, after Republicans were swept to power and Gingrich became Speaker of the House. The Republicans gained the majority, thanks in large part to gun owners outraged by the Clinton gun ban. And upon taking the reins of the House, Speaker Gingrich said famously that, “As long as I am Speaker of this House, no gun control legislation is going to move in committee or on the floor of this House and there...

    Denmark Newspaper Announces New Comic Strip: Derflügen Jihad Satire by Writer33 Copenhagen…..—Under a firestorm of controversy, the Danish newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, plans to step on the neck of Islamic fascists, and draw a new battle line by announcing their new comic strip. The new strip—which is to debut April 1, 2006—is titled, Derflügen Jihad. The trouble all began with the publishing of cartoons, satirizing the Prophet Mohammad. This evoked wrath from radical Islamic clerics, bursts of rage in protests, as thousands gathered to do what they do best: burn things. In this religion of peace, clerics placed a bounty on...

    Onyx's husband fell thru a glass door and severed an artery in his arm this morning. He almost bled to death while waiting for 911 to come, but they made it. They've been at the hospital since noon, with him in and out of surgery. They are back in surgery now, with 3 surgeons trying to repair a lot of torn and severed veins and archeries. He's lost a lot of blood, they've given him 6 pints so far. It's very complicated, but those are the basics.

    No, itÂ’s not SpidermanÂ’s latest web slinging tool but something thatÂ’s more real world. Like the World Wide Web.The Invisible Web refers to the part of the WWW thatÂ’s not indexed by the search engines. Most of us think that that search powerhouses like Google and Bing are like the Great OracleÂ…they see everything. Unfortunately, they canÂ’t because they arenÂ’t divine at all; they are just web spiders who index pages by following one hyperlink after the other.But there are some places where a spider cannot enter. Take library databases which need a password for access. Or even pages that...

    A few curious facts for the new to Elvis: Elvis Aaron Presley was born January 8, 1935 in a little house in Tupelo, Mississippi. He had a stillborn brother Jesse Garon Presley. There was no doctor yet present during the birth and Elvis' parents put him in a shoebox in the oven to keep him warm. His real hair color as an adult was dark blond. His eyes were extremely blue.He was shockingly different for the 50's and stunningly talented: Heartbreak Hotel Elvis was one of the most beautiful (I would argue THE most beautiful person) ever photographed. Men and...

    Mars Lander Team Prepares for "Seven Minutes of Terror"Victoria Jaggard National Geographic NewsMay 13, 2008 After years of planning followed by a ten-month journey, the Mars Phoenix Lander is slated to touch down on the red planet's north pole on May 25. If successful, the probe will be the first lander to reach a Martian pole and the first to actually touch the planet's water ice. What's more, it could settle the debate over whether Mars was once a habitable world. Now, as Phoenix closes in on the last 12 million miles (19 million kilometers) of its journey, NASA scientists...

    SADDAM HUSSEIN CAPTURED Former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein has been captured in his home town of Tikrit, according to reports. There has been no independent verification of the news but Sky New's Foreign Editor Tim Marshall says the source of the news is usually reliable. The US Defence Department says it has had no confirmation of the claims, which come from Iraqi Kurd leader Jalal Talabani, says the Iran news agency IRNA. Hundreds of exultant people have taken to the streets of Kirkuk, firing weapons into the air in celebration. A press conference has been announced for 12pm GMT. In...

      Put up or shut up By Tony SnowJan 5, 2006 Add "domestic spying" to the long list of botched attempts to unseat George W. Bush. The New York Times' would-be bombshell alleging Nixonian snoopery has detonated in its builders' faces. The story not only hasn't shaken Washington, it has restored the president's standing by reinforcing popular suspicions that he, unlike leading Democrats, takes seriously (a) terrorists' intentions and (b) the necessity of winning the war. The seriousness gap is important. While the president attempts to press the case for continued engagement, key Democrats respond with hollow grade-school cant. Not even...
