    On The Daily Show, President Obama blamed Republicans for the IRS scandal: “You’ve got this back office, and they’re going after the Tea Party. Well, it turned out, no, Congress had passed a crummy law that didn’t give people guidance in terms of what it was they were trying to do. They did it poorly and stupidly. The truth of the matter is that there was not some big conspiracy there. They were trying to sort out these conflicting demands. You don’t want all this money pouring through non-for- profits, but you also want to make sure everybody is being...

    WASHINGTON — Is marriage becoming obsolete? As families gather for Thanksgiving this year, nearly one in three American children is living with a parent who is divorced, separated or never-married. More people are accepting the view that wedding bells aren't needed to have a family. A study by the Pew Research Center, in association with Time magazine, highlights rapidly changing notions of the American family. And the Census Bureau, too, is planning to incorporate broader definitions of family when measuring poverty, a shift caused partly by recent jumps in unmarried couples living together. About 29 percent of children under 18...

    WASHINGTON — Critics of health care reform often point to desperate Canadians who head south for surgery to escape waiting lists. But a trend closer to home points the opposite direction: Americans heading overseas to escape the high cost of U.S. care. < snip > Once a cottage industry, medical tourism may be on the cusp of major expansion as governments from India to Singapore invest in state-of-the-art hospitals, vying for a global market. Uninsured patients currently make up the bulk of Americans venturing abroad. But Vequist's group has studied at least 50 companies that say they are open to...

    It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people. True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the...
  • This Story Has Been Going For A Week Charlie!<audio)

    "While listening to Don Wade and Roma this morning on WLS AM Chicago, they had Charlie Gibson(ABC News Anchor) on as their usual Tuesday morning guest. Don asked Charlie, why, after the senate last night voted to halt funding to ACORN and after three of those video tapes of ACORN employees helping the pimp and prostitute set up shop, there was no mention of it anywhere on the network news. Charlie gave out a most uncomfortable laugh and said that that was the first he heard of it!" Charlie Gibson is either dumbest and most ill informed news anchor in...

    President Obama and the US Secretary of State fuelled a fierce American backlash against Britain, claiming Abdelbaset Al Megrahi should have been forced to serve out his jail sentence in Scotland – but a senior Whitehall aide said their reaction was ‘disingenuous’. British officials claim Mr Obama and Mrs Clinton were kept informed at all stages of discussions concerning Megrahi’s return. The officials say the Americans spoke out because they were taken aback by the row over Megrahi’s release, not because they did not know it was about to happen. ‘The US was kept fully in touch about everything that...

    I have noticed a few comments on the YouTube site attached to the protest videos that are saying YouTube has stopped the "hit-counters" of the protest videos and marked all of the with a "Thumbs-Down." Anyone notice if this is true? Has YouTube altered the view counters? Are they marking the protest videos with Thumbs-Down? Something else to watch.

    The media is a abuzed about this, and the lefty blogs are acting as though this being some nuance of the right. Wrong. Let’s not forget that Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, both antisemitic and neither considered spokesmen for the right. But after some research it appears the shooter, James Von Brunn is in fact - despite the protestations of the Kos Kids - a registered democrat from Maryland. So much for the “Right Wing Conspiracy”. Fact is that most of the Holocaust Denier crowd is from the left. Many of the groups follow the writings of Naom Chomsky, the...

    As President Barack Obama pulls out the stops to ensure economic stimulus passage, Democrats seek a wedge between the GOP and Rush Limbaugh, officials say. Obama and top aides are reportedly be using all the trappings of the office, from phone calls and cocktail parties to a politically mixed Super Bowl party to push the stimulus package as the issue moves to the Senate. The House passed a $819 billion stimulus package this week with no Republican support. Meanwhile, liberal groups are taking out after Limbaugh, the influential talk show host, Politico reported. One group, Americans United for Change, plans...
