    In America, those who work get punished. Those who don't, get a free ride, courtesy of a nationwide policy of spreading the wealth around through confiscation and redistribution. Case in point: A welfare recipient in Austin recently contacted a morning radio show and explained that she gets a lot of money from the program. What she does with it may (or may not) surprise you. Here's how your hard earned money is being used to help the less fortunate: "While workers out there are preaching morality at people like me living on welfare, can you really blame us?"

    So not only is George Soros an evil, shadowy figure manipulating foreign governments and hell-bent on creating a global One World Order, he’s also kind of a dick. According to friends of the 81-year-old billlionaire, Soros used to make his 28-year-old girlfriend (now ex) sit at the children’s table during Sunday brunches. One particular friend gives some explanation, however weak, to this incredibly strange habit. “He always had one table for the men, one for the women, and one for the kids,” said a friend of the Hungarian investing guru.

    Israel 'will not sit back' and let Iran build atomic weapons By Tim Butcher in Jerusalem (Filed: 23/01/2006) Israel issued thinly-veiled warnings yesterday that it was preparing to take direct action to stop Iran, its bitter enemy, acquiring nuclear weapons. Remarks by Shaul Mofaz, the defence minister, raised the temperature of the worsening international crisis over the Islamic republic's nuclear ambitions and prompted Iran into a swift and strongly-worded response. The war of words increased the prospect of another pre-emptive strike by Israel similar to that in 1981 when its warplanes destroyed Saddam Hussein's nuclear programme with an attack on...
