    Some advice to the folks at Marylou’s coffee chain, now under investigation by the EEOC, on how to fight back: Start laughing. Back during the Clinton years the EEOC went after Hooters for its alleged hiring bias (we all remember how hard Bill Clinton was on women... uh, let me re-phrase that). Hooters refused to hire men to wear the infamous “orange short-shorts and white tank-top” ensemble. The EEOC spent four years pressuring them to hire male waiters, which would have ruined the Hooters concept. Hooters tried reasoning and logic. As one would expect when dealing with bureaucrats, they failed...

    -snip- Although Fehrnstrom is one of Romneys longest-serving aides, he, like his boss, has no roots in the conservative movement. Fehrnstrom started out as a reporter covering alderman meetings in Boston and lives in liberal Brookline, Mass. His work as a GOP operative has been confined to New England a region, as he often notes, thats pretty rocky terrain for Republicans. To some influential conservatives, Fehrnstrom is an enigma. Its not that conservatives dont trust him. Its that some dont even know him. Ive never heard of him. Ive been going to conservative meetings since I was knee-high to...

    Wearing bright orange t-shirts with undocumented and unafraid printed on the front, three Mexican illegals, disrupted legislative hearings in North Carolina this Wednesday by yelling at House lawmakers for what they felt were anti-immigration stances.

    Police from several departments rushed to the Rye Playland amusement park in Westchester County after an altercation broke out between patrons over a tensions over Muslim headscarves. The fight erupted after a "misunderstanding" between the park workers and some Muslim patrons over the park's restrictions on headgear on some rides, according to the Westchester County Executive's Office. Apparently some Muslim women wearing the traditional headscarf, called a hijab, were denied access to some rides because of safety reasons. "The incident erupted when some of the women tried to gain entry on rides that prohibit any kind of headwear, such as...

    Remember all those dirty hippies who threatened to move to Canada if Bush was re-elected? Guess what, Canada doesn't want them either.... Peace activists Medea Benjamin and Ann Wright have been arrested in the U.S. while protesting the Iraq war, but they never dreamed that would prevent them from entering Canada. The arrests landed Benjamin's and Wright's names in an FBI-run database, the National Crime Information Center, which Canada also relies on to screen visitors. When the two women visited the country in August, they were told they would have to apply for "criminal rehabilitation" and pay $200 if they...

    "Plans to shut down the senior part of Hermodsdal school in Malm have prompted the Liberals to request an extra parliamentary debate on the problem of discipline in Swedish schools. "In Malm a gang of troublemakers has dictated the decision. It's unacceptable," said the Liberal Party's Jan Bjrklund. The proposal to close the high school with 200 students, which was put forward during the Easter break, was due to "lack of security, vandalism and poor study results". The school has been vandalised several times and in January part of it was damaged in an arson attack." ... "It's the first...
