    White House spokesman Jay Carney carefully deflected Vice President Joe Biden’s Monday night declaration that the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout was the most audacious military strike in 500 years. “He meant the decision the president made… was a very difficult one,” said Carney, when asked about Biden’s gaffe. “When you’re president, you have to make the tough decisions.” Carney kept a straight face amid laughter from journalists attending the press conference. But Carney stepped back when asked if the bin Laden raid was more audacious that the D-Day landings on the Nazi-held Normandy coast in June 1944....

    Millions of Americans enjoy caroling during the Christmas season. As it turns out, the people at the left-wing activist group MoveOn.org like caroling, too -- just not in the traditional way. On Christmas Eve, MoveOn sent out a video of the MoveOn Council in Minneapolis-St. Paul singing a hearty version of "Jingle Bells, with somewhat different words: Health care's out of reach The cost is way too high And if we cannot pay They'll simply let us die

    Sabine chariot rewrites history'Exceptional' find proves independence of ancient city (ANSA) - Rome, May 12 - An ancient king's war chariot found in a tomb near Rome has helped rewrite the history of the Romans and their Sabine rivals . "This chariot is an exceptional find," said archaeologist Paola Santoro. "It shows that the city of Ereteum remained independent long after the Sixth Century BC." "In other Sabine cities like Custumerium, conquered by the Romans, the custom of putting regal objects in king's tombs had died out by that time". "We can say that Eretum kept its independence until the...

    Glenn Beck has apologized this morning to all of us that started watching '24' this season based on his recommendation. He is also saying that he was about to give up on '24' last night because the witers interjected PATRIOTIC Arabs that own a gun store, and are proud to be American and stand with their American brothers to go up against whoever committed the terrorist acts. WHAT A LINE OF PC CRAP! I, for one, have not heard a single Arab-American stand up publicly and say that they denounce Islamic terrorism and are willing to stand up with their...
