    Two kayakers adrift in Jamaica Bay with just one paddle unwittingly breached Kennedy Airport’s $300 million perimeter detection system. They could have been spotted by a boat patrol — except there wasn’t one. Port Authority boats don’t patrol the bay at night, police sources said.

    You're on the trading floor, trying to price out if a 15-year bond issued by General Electric will generate the returns needed to placate your investors. Bad news, your calculator is dead and the trader from Cantor Fitzgerald is readying to signal his buy. What to do? Well, if all you need to do is double the investment in five-years, you're in luck. That's probably not the case, and GE probably isn't issuing 15-year debt. But we compiled a list of six math tricks that might just come in handy. If you have a math trick you'd like us to...

    The number of Chinese students in American colleges has tripled in the last three years. Unfortunately, most colleges don't know what they are getting into. According to New York Times many of these students are arriving with barely passable English, despite dominating the SATs and having impeccable applications. The secret to getting into college for a Chinese person is paying the right agency. About 80 percent of Chinese applicants use such agents according to a report by Zinch Group. Aoji Education Group, for example, offers parents a package complete with money-back guarantee if you don't get into one of the...
  • Dogs Riding a Bike & Playing Choo Choo Train (cute Video)

    I have two videos of a former homeless dog that has been trained to ride a bicycle. This dog is not just riding by the way, he is actually peddling and steering it to where he is directed to go. Usually that would be enough to be worth watching, this but it gets even better. The man who found the dog already owned dogs, some of which are Pomeranians. So after he taught the new dog to ride a bike, he taught his other dogs to hold on to each other and follow the bike around. So now we have...

    WASHINGTON – The historic $38 billion in budget cuts resulting from at-times hostile bargaining between Congress and the Obama White House were accomplished in large part by pruning money left over from previous years, using accounting sleight of hand and going after programs President Barack Obama had targeted anyway. Such moves permitted Obama to save favorite programs — Pell grants for poor college students, health research and "Race to the Top" aid for public schools, among others — from Republican knives, according to new details of the legislation released Tuesday morning.

Pundit Press, which closely followed the election balloting yesterday, offers this analysis: "As if the situation in Wisconsin wasn't tense enough, it appears that one county in particular is going to a new extreme. This comes after word that there may have been voter fraud in the nonpartisan State Supreme Court election yesterday between incumbent

    How Obama and his merry band are trying to evade the will of the people The people spoke in November when they delivered a shellacking to Democrats and Barack Obama. They had grabbed too much power in ways that ran afoul of tradition, the law, and the will of the people. In electing so many Republicans to office, Americans wanted a course change from the radicalism of the past two years: the regulatory avalanche, the policy missteps, the ObamaCare overreach. Have President Obama and his merry band of followers read the memo yet? The people have had it with the...

    We know that Obama is unpopular in many parts of the country. We also know many more Democrats than usual are hiding their party affiliation in campaign signs and ads. We also know that many Democrat operatives steal, deface or remove Republican campaign signs because they are closet Nazis who cannot stand fair elections. Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to identify Democrat candidates in your area that are ducking from Obama. Buy bumper stickers you can special order in bulk and then spend a day or so attaching the bumper stickers onto Democrat campaign signs. The...

    A move is afoot to grant statehood to Puerto Rico, and a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives tomorrow may put the island on a path to becoming the nation's 51st state. Democrat Pedro R. Pierluisi, Puerto Rico's pro-statehood delegate to Congress and former co-chair of President Obama's 2008 presidential campaign in Puerto Rico, is sponsor of H.R. 2499, the Puerto Rico Democracy Act. The act has 181 co-sponsors.

    A lot of colorful phrases are associated with World War II. Like, "Nuts!" -- one American commander's defiant response to German surrender demands. Or, "Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition," attributed to a U.S. Navy chaplain during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. But here's another one, appropriate for this season. Trick or treat! The trick was setting up phony, inflatable tanks, trucks and artillery under cover of darkness. Then generating some ersatz radio traffic between units and commanders. Igniting flash canisters mimicking the glare of cannons firing. Erecting loudspeakers and playing the pre-recorded sounds of troops and vehicles...

    Even little kids know when they've been had. Like the little girl in the bank commercial who gets a tiny plastic pony while the other little girl gets a real pony, and the little boy who gets the cardboard truck, most Americans think President Barack Obama is hiding behind the fine print in his incomprehensible health care plan. It's why Obama's poll numbers are dropping faster than the faces of the kids in the commercials. Obama's presidential approval index is now at minus 6; 32 percent strongly approve of him and 38 percent strongly disapprove. Since his inauguration, his job...

    In a stunning turnabout, the Bush administration Wednesday abandoned the original centerpiece of its $700 billion effort to rescue the financial system and said it will not use the money to purchase troubled bank assets. “Our assessment at this time is that this (the purchase of toxic assets) is not the most effective way to use funds,” Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson told a news conference. Paulson said the administration will continue to use $250 billion of the program to purchase stock in banks as a way to bolster their balance sheets and encourage them to resume more normal lending.

And they did it without firing a single shot. All of which, Morgan said, means they did it the right way. "We live here. If we have to go in hard, we still have to come back the next day.

That's the verdict of the nation's top talker, Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh said the Democrats "do not find what Mark Foley did to be repugnant at all." Limbaugh recalled that they "have defended such behavior in the...

The 49-year-old illusionist was walking with two female assistants to their tour bus after his show Sunday at a performing arts center when four teens pulled up in a black car, a police report said. Two armed robbers allegedly got out of the car and demanded the group's belongings. One woman handed over $400 from her pockets and the other gave up her purse with 200 euros, $100, her passport, plane tickets and a cell phone. Copperfield refused to empty his pockets, the report said. Copperfield says he...

    The allegations against former Enron Corp. chairman Kenneth Lay and others involved in corporate scandals, such as WorldCom, generally revolve about creative accounting - hiding liabilities, inflating revenues and assets, etc. One specific charge in the Enron trial now under way in Houston, for example, is that it cooked the books one year to add a penny to the company's per-share earnings and thus meet Wall Street analysts' expectations. What's striking about the allegedly illegal corporate accounting is its similarity to the gimmicks that California politicians have employed in two state budget crises over the past 15 years. --snip-- Here's...

    Democrats had a bad night, Republicans had a good night, and that means America had a great night. With Bush in and Daschle out, conservatives control the future of the War on Terror, the future of the Supreme Court, the future of taxation, and the future of government growth. Notwithstanding all of the complex issues at hand in this election, the basic message we can take from Tuesday's results is that Americans overwhelmingly support hawkish, right-wing, Reaganesque international relations. Apparently ''hop complacently to the United Nations'' was not as appealing an offer as ''kill terrorists today, tomorrow, and forever with...

    Despite Kerry's angel-faced sanctimony, this was a piece of premeditated gay-baiting (John Edwards used the same gambit in his debate with Cheney) whose transparent purpose was to keep some of the GOP's evangelical voters from turning out on Nov. 2. This was a miscalculation. Since the debate, the Christian right has been rallying to the side of Mary Cheney. Well-known political preachers like Jerry Falwell and James Dobson have gone out of their way to defend her right to privacy. Conservative radio talk shows and Web sites have been flooded with denunciations of Kerry and support for Mary. This reaction...

Either way, the Clintons lose. A good economy coupled with a Kerry presidency gets him re-elected; chumming with the French and Germans and undermining the War on Terror gets Kerry un-elected, replaced by Republican Colin Powell who now has foreign policy...

    According to the Associated Press, Bill Burkett is a broken man, a loose cannon seeking to share "the truth" about President Bush's military record. State and National Democrats, including Max Cleland (whom Burkett claims to have contacted), seem to know little about Burkett. But according to Bill Howell, Dallas County Chair for the Texas Democratic Party 1999-2002, Bill Burkett is not only connected to the Texas Democratic Party - he is a major player in the Texas Democratic Party. As first reported last night,, Bill Burkett is certainly well known within the Texas Democratic Party. Tonight, new documents reveal that...

    Today's big Boston Globe story on President Bush's Air National Guard service is based on memos to file from the personal records of the late Lieutenant Colonel Jerry B. Killian: "Bid cited to boost Bush in Guard." The Globe story is itself based on last night's 60 Minutes report: "New questions on Bush Guard duty." The online version of the 60 Minutes story has links to the memos. Killian died in 1984; CBS states that it "consulted a handwriting analyst and document expert who believes the material is authentic." Reader Tom Mortensen writes: Every single one of the memos to...

    Apparently Kids, Tricks are for Liberals Dustin Hawkins 8-15-2004 A reader recently complained that I had written seven columns in a row about John Kerry. (This will be my eighth.) Just consider me John Kerry's other biographer--the one who doesn't change his story. The Kerry campaign accidentally gave the Swift Boat Veterans a good deal of credibility by admitting that at least one of their accounts of Kerry's Vietnam service is accurate. Now, the Kerry camp concedes that he never was in Cambodia on Christmas Eve, as the Swift boaters claimed, despite Kerry having stated on the Congressional Record that...

    Just wondering. What is the actual answer to this?If Kerry pulled out of the Presidential campaign for some reason before the election, but after being officially nominated at the Convention, would John Edwards (the political equivalent of breat implants) necessarily and consequently be the Democrat presidential candidate. Just wondering.

    I'm glad for all of those FREEPERs that worked to get this on the ballot and it's great just for helping in next election. Now you have a lot of activists and you have created a data base of fed up Californians. You had no choice because doing something rather than nothing is far better. But I see two flies in the ointment based on what we all know of RAT Party. Just a hunch, what do the rest of you think. I see them doing two things PLAN A is they will sign up no DEM by the deadline,...

    Net activists are pressing the UK Government to explain what has happened to thousands of public responses that expressed doubts about the merits of ID cards. The responses were passed on by groups such as Stand and Privacy International when the government was seeking public comment on its ID card proposals. The groups have been dismayed by bullish official announcements on ID cards and fear that all dissenting views are being ignored. In response the Home Office said it would take all views into account and was still scrutinising responses. Lost responses From the 31 July 2002 to 31 January...

    The law of unintended consequences is raising a terrible possibility in Iraq. The dying but defiant government has reached into its seemingly limitless bag of violent tricks and come out with suicide bombers. It was long known that President Saddam Hussein rewarded the murderous suicides of Palestinians in Israel. It was long rumoured that Iraq was running a school to train young men and women to become suicide bombers. One of the most dangerous possibilities of our day is that the Iraq war may make suicide bombers appear legitimate to many unthinking people. There should be nothing but condemnation of...
  • Davis Crafted ( CA Governor and Silly Budget Tricks )

    Davis crafted A fresh take on an old philosophical riddle, courtesy of state leaders in Sacramento: If a tax goes up, but no one votes to raise it, can anyone be held accountable? Gov. Gray Davis is hoping the answer is no. Desperate to fill his 11-figure budget deficit, the governor has long been itching to triple the state car tax, but didn't want to take the political heat for socking the average California family to the tune of an additional $124 a year -- and a lot more for families owning more than one car or newer models. For...
