    A letter from a reader asks, "Is the myth about Billy the Kid killing 21 men true or not?" The legends says he killed one man for each of year of his life. He also wants to know when and where he was born because he's read a couple of different versions. First, let's take on when and where William Henry Bonney, also known as "Billy the Kid," was born. To my knowledge, people can guess all they want but no one has proof of when or where he was born. That's the bottom line on that. The Authentic...

    **SNIP** But perhaps the most intriguing bit was when, in a brief discussion of Obama’s plans for his post-presidency, Obama hinted that he planned to start speaking out more like an activist than a president. There are “things,” he told Goodwin, “that in some ways I suspect I’m able to do better out of this office.” He elaborated that because of the “institutional constraints” of the presidency, “there are things I cannot say.” He went on to essentially say he wanted to use his post-presidential bully pulpit more like an activist than a venerable elder statesman. “There are institutional obligations...

    TSA Demands Internal Passport for Domestic Travel By: Wendy McElroy | Tue, Feb 10, 2015 Share Print Email Precedents exist for requiring citizens to produce special ID for domestic travel; they include Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa and Russia (both Imperial and Soviet).Over the Christmas season, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) quietly announced that America was walking down that path. By 2016, all domestic air travel will require either a traditional passport or a federally-compliant ID card called "Real ID." State driver's licenses will no longer allow Americans access to domestic flights, as they do now. Real ID will constitute...

    The following is only partly satire; the rest is pure fact. Being able to discern which is which disqualifies the reader from government employment or contracting. As the old saying goes, “desperate times call for desperate measures.” With the glaring klieg lights of harsh congressional scrutiny being thrown onto several grave and alarming security lapses around the President and First Family, a humiliated and confused Obama administration is urgently in need of expert help. So much so, in fact, that they’re now awkwardly reaching out to someone whose skill at detecting suspicious perimeter intrusion at a gated complex (not to...

    Walking through Target and picked up the movie "Lone Survivor". Saw this twice at the theater and both times cried, right along with every other man. A moving story about true brothers, who would not leave each other's side, rallied their collective strength and held each other as men, doing their level best to help the guy on the right and the guy on the left. Sadly, only one man made it out, through shear determination and an indomitable spirit. But, not before more good men went to rescue them, knowing they were not fully armed, not fully covered in...
  • The Real Unemployment Rate: In 20% Of American Families, Everyone Is Unemployed

    Zero Hedge ^ | 4/29/14 | Tyler Durden
    According to shocking new numbers that were just released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 20 percent of American families do not have a single person that is working. So when someone tries to tell you that the unemployment rate in the United States is about 7 percent, you should just laugh. One-fifth of the families in the entire country do not have a single member with a job. That is absolutely astonishing. How can a family survive if nobody is making any money? Well, the answer to that question is actually quite easy. There is a reason why government...

    In the Eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk, where pro-Russian militants have seized government facilities, pamphlets have recently been circulated warning Jews to register with city officials or see their property confiscated. There was some confusion as to who put the leaflets out, or whether they were merely meant as a provocation. On Thursday, however, the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine confirmed to CNN that the pamphlets are authentic. Speaking with CNN host Jake Tapper, Amb. Geoffrey Pyatt said that the “chilling” leaflets which force Jews to register their property and religion with the government or face consequences have been released by...

    We now know that the Justice Department kept exceptionally close tabs on Fox News reporter James Rosen in 2010, following his trips in and out of the State Department, hacking his personal emails and phone calls. Normal newsgathering activities are being treated as criminal activities by the White House. But consider what the same White House had to say about Fox News back in 2009. You might remember the concerted effort by White House officials to brand the right-leaning Fox News as a bogus news outlet, unworthy of attention.

    An overwhelming 97 percent of climatologists endorse the idea of human-caused global warming. As if the backing of NASA, 18 independent American scientific societies, and an intergovernmental panel established under the United Nations weren't enough to quell the protests popping up in comment sections across the Internet, a new study published in the journal Environmental Research Letters confirms — once again — that climatologists almost unanimously believe that climate change is directly related to human-made carbon emissions. Researchers pored over nearly 12,000 peer-reviewed scientific papers from 1991 to 2011. These papers, according to Michael Todd at Pacific Standard, represented the...
