    MSNBC weekend host Melissa Harris-Perry lined up a panel of alleged comedians to mock the Christmas picture Mitt Romney posted on Twitter. In a segment with the on-screen question "What's So Funny About 2013?" Harris-Perry announced: “This is the Romney family. And, of course, there on Governor Romney’s knee is his adopted grandson, who is an African-American, an adopted African-American child, Kieran Romney.” To which comedian and actress Pia Glenn sang the old Sesame Street ditty “One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just isn’t the same … “And that little baby, front and...

    Rock legend and gun-rights activist Ted Nugent took the Obama administration to task Sunday evening for pledging to make gun control a priority, telling a radio host the presidents plans are practically psychotic. A person who lives by logic and studies history and tries to implement the lessons learned by history cannot begin to rationally explain the conduct of this president or his attorney general or this administration, Nugent said. It is psychotic, it is crazy, it is illogical. Nugent was speaking to Aaron Klein of New York WABC Radios Aaron Klein Investigative Radio. Nugent explained that many people have...

    The city streets are teeming with thousands of mentally ill homeless people capable of psychotic acts of random violence if left untreated, experts warned yesterday. As many as 11,000 of the citys 33,000 homeless adults have some form of mental illness, said D.J. Jaffe, executive director of the Mental Illness Policy Organization. Of that number, about 3,300 are potentially violent, Jaffe said. When untreated, theyre capable of horrific acts, said Jaffe. The danger is that theyre so sick that they dont know theyre sick, and their brain is incapable of regulating their own behavior. He urged New Yorkers to be...

    WASHINGTON President Barack Obama said Thursday that the 2012 election will be a "fun debate" over two competing visions for the nation, referring to Mitt Romney as the Republican "front-runner" who has backed policies that would undermine middle-class families. At a fundraiser held at a Washington hotel, Obama told supporters that his administration had spent the past three years "cleaning up after some of that mess, and I don't want to have to do it again."

    Political analysts are predicting a huge win for Republicans in November's congressional elections, but some Democrats believe they have a secret plan to stave off a crushing Republican landslide. Thats the analysis from Newsweek magazines Andrew Romano, who writes that the Democrats in charge are actually rather confident about getting their fellow Dems elected this year. The reason? They have a plan a plan that they believe will produce much better results on Election Day than anyone expects. The first element of that plan is the return of Obamas former campaign manager David Plouffe, who left politics after Obamas...

    WASHINGTON President Barack Obama is trying to rally support for his health care overhaul bill by telling Democrats that Republicans fear that the legislation will end up being popular. In a televised meeting with House Democrats on Capitol Hill, Obama told the lawmakers that Republicans realize that once the bill becomes law, "Low and behold, nobody's pulling the plug on granny." That was a reference to opponents' false claims last summer that the health bill would let government bureaucrats make life and death decisions. Obama said voters would like the bill's features that take effect this year, including restrictions...

Five days after the murders in March 2004, Thomas gouged out his right eye inside a Grayson County jail cell after reading a Bible verse. The state's top Criminal Appeals Court upheld Thomas' conviction and death sentence back in October of 2008. Thomas is now...

He said the world had learnt lessons from the attacks in the US on 11 September 2001 and hoped the same would happen after events in the Caucasus. Reports say Russian troops are showing signs of preparing to pull back from inside Georgia. This is in line with a ceasefire deal brokered by French President Nicolas Sarkozy on Monday. However, a Georgian Interior Ministry spokesman cast doubt on the preparations, saying: "There has been no sign of a withdrawal." 'Changed world'...

But do you ever stop to think that this miracle would not be possible without the work of scientists? That's right: There are tiny scientists inside that radio, playing instruments! A similar principle is used in automatic bank-teller machines, which is why they frequently say, ''Sorry, out of service.''

    CHICAGO - Soaring numbers of American children are being prescribed anti-psychotic drugs in many cases, for attention deficit disorder or other behavioral problems for which these medications have not been proven to work, a study found. The annual number of children prescribed anti-psychotic drugs jumped fivefold between 1995 and 2002, to an estimated 2.5 million, the study said. That is an increase from 8.6 out of every 1,000 children in the mid-1990s to nearly 40 out of 1,000. But more than half of the prescriptions were for attention deficit and other non-psychotic conditions, the researchers said.

It's also unusually efficient at ruining lives, ensnaring entire families and turning parents and children into addicts fixated only on their next euphoric high.

It's an illness that has been with us since time immemorial. Because it's an illness that's in the soul of all of humanity, it pervades the field and is in all of us in potential at any moment, which makes it especially hard to diagnose. Bush's malady is quite different from schizophrenia, for example, in which all the different parts of the personality are fragmented and not connected to each other,...

    AMMAN, 22 October 2003 It matters little whether the mastermind behind the killing of three Americans in Gaza last week was a Palestinian group or Israeli intelligence. Whats of relevance, however, is that the Palestinian people will wholly bear the brunt of the incident. Censuring the weakest party is a habit that has infected the ongoing Middle East conflict for decades. To illustrate: Palestinian parents are still being customarily accused of recruiting their own children for martyrdom for the sake of some funneled dollars provided by Arab governments or for the sake of merely blemishing Israels image. With the...

    Six Dead in Miss. Plant Shooting Rampage The Associated Press Jul 8 2003 8:15PM MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) - A factory worker known as a racist ``hothead'' who talked about killing people opened fire with a shotgun at a Lockheed Martin plant Tuesday, leaving five fellow employees dead before committing suicide. Dozens of employees at the aircraft parts plant frantically ran for cover after assembly worker Doug Williams, dressed in a black T-shirt and camouflage pants, started firing during a morning break. As many as eight people were wounded in the nation's deadliest workplace shooting in 2 1/2 years. ``At first...

    London - The increasing use of cannabis by adolescents is threatening the mental health of a generation because of the drug's capacity to trigger psychosis, a leading psychiatrist has warned. Robin Murray, a professor at the Institute of Psychiatry, said growing evidence linking cannabis with mental disorder had failed to curb use of the drug. One study suggested cannabis users were at seven times higher risk of developing mental problems. "In the past 18 months, a number of studies have confirmed that cannabis consumption increases later risk of schizophrenia," he told the Royal College of Psychiatrists annual conference in Edinburgh....

    (Japanese) Cultists Fearing Microwave Attack Whitewash RoadsideGIFU, Japan -- Some 40 members of a bizarre cult have taken over a 200-meter stretch of road in Gifu Prefecture, covering up crash barriers and roadside trees with huge white cloths, it was learned Tuesday.

Officials of Hachiman and Yamato, the two central Japan towns that manage the Omami road, have urged members of the Fukui-based cult, the "Panawave Laboratory," to move out but they have refused to comply. "One of us fell ill while we were heading to Yamanashi Prefecture...

    In the darkness at dawn the other day, I nearly broke every bone in my body when I tripped over something on the sidewalk. It was a dog as small as your foot. No wonder I didn't notice him. "Sorry," a man said, holding the small dog on a leash. ...... Pepe cannot let his pit bull go unchained. Which is just what he had around the dog's neck, a big thick tire chain from a gas station. ...... Here he came lunging and Pepe held onto the chain for all in his arms and the front of the dog,...

    A LONDON-BASED human rights organisation will file a complaint this week with the International Olympic Committee against Saddam Husseins elder son Uday, saying he has punished some of Iraqs top sportsmen with beatings, harassment and electric shock torture. It claims he once made a group of athletes crawl on newly poured asphalt while they were hit with a cable. Among the allegations is a charge that in the basement of Iraqs lavish Olympic committee headquarters in Baghdad, Uday ran a 30-cell prison for sportsmen and others who had offended him. He allegedly used its warehouses for smuggling in contravention of...

    <p>If Kurt Cobain had looked less like a rent boy on the Lido and more like, say, Howdy Doody, would he be alive and well today? On the other hand, if Cobain hadn't found an outlet and an audience for his hostility by performing in the band Nirvana, would he have turned the shotgun he used to kill himself in 1994 on the rest of us instead?</p>

    <p>Sekou Mims's son was 16 when he experienced a sudden psychotic breakdown. Over three months, the black teenager had a series of delusions - that white police were following him, that white strangers on a train were staring at him menacingly. He'd hyperventilate walking down the street. All his delusions revolved around racism.</p>
