    So I'm driving along and turn my Sirius radio on and still, nearly two months later, there is no FoxNews Talk. See, I like Hannity. He's A great cheerleader but, that's as far as his content is and I can't stand his idiotic setups throughout the week where he and his guests get involved in a discussions that devolves into mindless drive that, on the radio, is crosstalk. That probably works on TV but on the radio it's just aggravating noise. So I like Tom Sullivan and other hosts as an alternative and FoxNews Talk was opening me to other...

    Big Journalism ^ | 8/6/11 | Warner Todd Huston
    On MSNBC, John Kerry told us that Tea Party ideas are not “real” ideas, not “factual,” and thinks that the media should stop reporting on anything that smacks of ideas or news coming from Tea Partiers. If this isn’t proof of how Democrats and leftists would use the power of government to quash free political speech, what is? Not long ago, several Democrats tried to once again raise the ugly head of the defunct Fairness Doctrine that was killed during the Reagan administration in order to limit the free political speech of conservatives.

    Media Matters for America is organized as a tax exempt 501(c)3 organization. Under IRS guidelines, they must abide by several rules to maintain this status. Specifically, 501(c)3 organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. You can read an interesting article on this subject "Is Media Matters Breaking the law in its ‘war' on Fox News?" The article strongly suggests that Media Matters is violating its exemption as an educational foundation by actively participating in partisan political activities. Specifically...

    There is a potential presidential candidate whom almost every Republican wants. This person would not only galvanize the GOP base, but attract large numbers of independents and centrists as well. He would smash President Obama in 2012 and probably win by a landslide. He is Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin. More than Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Newt Gingrich - or any other possible “first-tier” candidate - the House Budget Committee chairman would be the most formidable challenger. He is smart, articulate and principled. He has name recognition.

In more than eight decades of activism, the Muslim Brotherhood has consistently promoted an agenda of gradual reform. Our principles, clearly stated since the inception of the movement in 1928, affirm an unequivocal position against violence. For the past 30 years we have posed, peacefully,...

    It is said that the one question about men and women that even the great Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis, could not answer was: What do women want? Whether or not Freud actually admitted his ignorance on this question is irrelevant. The very popularity of the anecdote testifies to one incontrovertible fact: A lot of men don’t know the answer. It is probably fair to say that a lot of women also don’t know the answer. If they did, all they would have to do is tell men. That would solve the riddle — and make most men and women...

Paul, a two-year-old octopus in a German aquarium, turned into a global celebrity for his uncanny ability to predict the winner of all Germany's matches -- even a group stage defeat to Serbia and an ousting by Spain in the semi-finals....

Research shows that a man can significantly increase his pulling power by simply catching a woman's eye and lightly touching her arm.

Jefferson, at the center of an increasingly complicated legal and political controversy with racial overtones, insisted he would not go quietly. "I can guarantee" he will not voluntarily step aside, said Melanie Roussell, his spokeswoman. The congressman has not been indicted and has repeatedly denied wrongdoing. He is a member of the Ways and Means Committee, with authority over taxes, Medicare, trade,...

American officials here said Iraqi officials have asked by them to stop calling groups opposed to the coalition "Sunni insurgents." The idea is that a great many Sunni Arabs are moderate and want democracy for Iraq, officials explained. Coalition officials have hit on the term "Iraqi rejectionists" to refer to those people who want to participate in the election process, but still launch attacks on coalition forces. Coalition officials also said many Iraqis want to change the perception that...

    Now it is another Vietnam. Again, a nonmilitary branch of the government is sticking their nose where it doesn't belong and demanding withdrawal before victory. America must not abandon another just cause. America must not betray another nation of people who are hoping for freedom and representation. It is the ideal of relativism that says freedom and democracy are not superior to tyranny and terror. Liberals who adhere to this philosophy may need to experience the latter before changing their mind about the superiority of America's way of life. Yet, a proper study of history would make that unnecessary. America's...

It's a finding that comes as a surprise to some leaders of the nation's largest lawyers' organization. They said despite the positive findings, courts report low response rates for people called to jury duty. However, according to the American Bar Association, three-fourths of those surveyed disagreed with the notion that jury service is a hardship to be dodged, with 58 percent saying...

    Clinton Book Lacks Salacious Details Readers Want 9 minutes ago By Mark Egan NEW YORK (Reuters) - Americans waiting to read Bill Clinton's take on the affair with Monica Lewinsky that rocked his presidency must wade through 773 pages of turgid prose to find a recollection remarkably devoid of details. Four-fifths of the way into his memoir "My Life," released on Tuesday by Alfred A. Knopf, the former president recalls his infamous affair with the White House intern. Clinton writes that in 1995, "I'd had an inappropriate encounter with Monica Lewinsky and would do so again on other occasions between...

    Dems Want Overtime Pay Rules Killed Wednesday, April 28, 2004 WASHINGTON — Labor Secretary Elaine Chao told Congress on Wednesday that new overtime regulations would strengthen "protection for more American workers that ever before," but a former federal investigator countered that the rules would subtly undermine eligibility of nursery school teachers, nurses and others. Appearing before a House committee, Chao said the regulations would mean guaranteed overtime protection for 1.3 million salaried workers who earn $455 a week or less. "They are predominantly married with less than a college degree and live in the South," she said. Other workers earning...

    <p>SACRAMENTO – Tax reformers challenged Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Tuesday to eliminate corporate loopholes in Prop. 13 that they say have cost the state billions since 1978.</p> <p>"There is a hole at the heart of our tax system crying out for reform," said Lenny Goldberg of the California Tax Reform Association, a nonprofit backed by labor and teachers. "There was never any promise to large corporations that they wouldn't be reassessed under Prop. 13, and there's no reason for not doing it."</p>

    The effort to recall Gov. Gray Davis of California is like a runaway train, fueled by voter anger and political aspirations. But as we race toward the Oct. 7 election date, the public and the courts should take time to consider the major flaws of the process. If the recall vote goes ahead as planned, it will plow over the United States Constitution and the fundamental rights of voters. The problem stems from this rather circuitous phrase in California election law: "no vote cast in the recall election shall be counted for any candidate unless the voter also voted for...

    A mob of about 100 Palestinian refugees stormed the office of a Ramallah polling organisation yesterday to stop it publishing a survey showing that five times as many refugees would prefer to settle permanently in a Palestinian state than return to their old homes in what is now Israel. The protesters pelted Khalil Shikaki, the director of the Palestinian Centre for Policy and Survey Research, with eggs, smashed computers and assaulted the nine staff members on duty. A female worker was treated in hospital for her injuries. "This is a message for everyone not to tamper with our rights," one...

    Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him, but was moved by Arthur's youthful happiness. So he offered him freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question. Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer; but if, after a year, he still had no answer, he would be killed. The question was: What do women really want? Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and, to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. Since it was better than death, however,...
