    It’s rare for people to celebrate getting 41 percent of anything. If you score 41 percent on a test, you get an F. If you win 41 percent of the vote in a two-person race, you lose. If your tax rate is 41 percent, you’re likely to feel ripped off. In the matter of his Iran deal, resident Obama and his team have spent two months working relentlessly to secure 41 percent — and now they’re claiming an enormous victory even though by any other standards what they’ve achieved is nothing but a feat of unconstitutional trickery. ...

King’s two roommates informed authorities they had set up secret cameras in their shared apartment because they were afraid of what King...

    **SNIP** In an interview published Friday, Obama said "the stars are aligned" to enable the United States and India to forge a global partnership. The cancellation of the Taj Mahal visit would deprive the country's top tourist attraction of publicity at a time when the government is trying to boost visitor numbers. Twitter users rushed to thank the president for orchestrating a clean-up of the mausoleum in the town of Agra, built by Mughal emperor Shah Jahan for his beloved empress who died during childbirth in 1631. "It was just Obama's clever plan to get Agra cleaned up. Thank you...

There is nothing wrong with the glue. 3. People are spitting on the wrong side.

    Sixty percent of people arrested for Islamic terrorist activities between January 2009 and April 2011 were American citizens, according to a new report from Rice University's Baker Institute for Public Policy. The study of 104 people who were arrested included U.S. and non-U.S. citizens living in America or abroad. The report, "Analyzing the Islamic Extremist Phenomenon in the United States: A Study of Recent Activity," was authored by Joan Neuhaus Schaan, fellow in homeland security at the Baker Institute. Jessica Phillips, an intern with the Baker Institute's homeland security and terrorism program, provided research support for the study. Using data...

This is to ensure that no U.S. Marine in Afghanistan urinates in the direction of Mecca ever again. Now, there's a winning strategy.

    Research promoting a painless new method for detecting diabetes, utilizing saliva, was revealed today at the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) 18th Annual Meeting & Clinical Congress. While searching for biomarkers that may indicate diabetes, doctors examined the saliva of 40 different patients. Through salivary analysis, they managed to devise a new, "non-invasive" method for detecting diabetes that foregoes the uncomfortable prick of a needle -- patients need only to spit into a cup. The spit test could be performed for little cost in a doctor's office or at a patient's home. "Our goal was to characterize proteins in...

In light of the unemployment rising, the debacle in foreign affairs etc, I found it unlikely. So I looked into the details of the poll. 73% of the Democrats polled thought we were on the right track 17% of Independents 10% of Republicans That made it even more suspicious as to how those numbers could result in a 48% overall right track vote. So digging deeper, it turns out 36% of...

    When Piper Palin spat on her hand to wipe down the hair of her brother Trig Palin, it was a touching scene for millions of viewers. I have since discovered some connections between that scene and the story of the blind man in the Gospel of John, chapter 9. "Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?" Trig's parents knew beforehand that he would be born with Down syndrome. Jesus answered, "Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents, but that the works of God should be manifest in him."

For example, on October 6, 1967, John F. Geyer and Bill Bowers, two sailors in uniform on a ten-day leave before shipping out, were accosted and taunted by a group of about ten young men while leaving a high-school football game in Allentown, Pennsylvania.

    STORIES ABOUT spat-upon Vietnam veterans are like mercury: Smash one and six more appear. It's hard to say where they come from. For a book I wrote in 1998 I looked back to the time when the spit was supposedly flying, the late 1960s and early 1970s. I found nothing. No news reports or even claims that someone was being spat on. What I did find is that around 1980, scores of Vietnam-generation men were saying they were greeted by spitters when they came home from Vietnam. There is an element of urban legend in the stories in that their...

The presidential campaign featured the resurgence of a myth from the early 1990s. That myth is that soldiers returning from Vietnam were spit upon by citizens or war protesters. That claim has been used to turn honest differences of opinion about the war into toxic indictments. As a scholar of urban legends I am...

    'IDIOT' GERMANS HARASS LANCE BY GERSH KUNTZMAN and BILL SANDERSON July 22, 2004 -- Asinine German cycling fans harassed five-time Tour de France champion Lance Armstrong during yesterday's grueling ride though the French Alps - two of the "idiots" spat on him, and another spectator chased him while wearing a "F - - - Bush" T-shirt.

"I don't think it's safe," said Armstrong, who is on...

    Any CNY'ers out there? I'm organizing a counter-protest vs the Syracuse Peace Council on March 20th. They are organizing a protest rally to spit on the USA and our brave troops serving in Iraq. Their demonstration will be from 12-1PM at Clinton Square here in Syracuse. Would any of you be willing to come out? Maybe you can bring others, too. I will be down there, along with my daughter and a few friends, to show my support for the US of A and our brave troops. 11AM-1Pm Saturday, March 20th. God Bless America!
