    Two more states are taking up proposals to require candidates for president to in some way document their eligibility to occupy the Oval Office, which is protected by constitutional demands that its resident be a "natural born Citizen." Pennsylvania and Louisiana are launching debate over the issue that already has been in front of lawmakers in 13 other states, and has left one bill awaiting only the signature from the governor of Arizona, and another proposal more than halfway through the Oklahoma Legislature. State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe of the 12th legislative district in Pennsylvania said it's just a matter of...

    PHOENIX (AP) -- The Arizona Legislature gave final approval Thursday to a proposal that would require President Barack Obama and other presidential candidates to prove they are U.S. citizens before their names can appear on the state's ballot. Arizona would become the first state to require such proof if Gov. Jan Brewer signs the measure into law.

    I have been thinking this evening about this subject of eligibility or Obama's lack there of. After reading Jack Cashill's latest column on the subject, I really started thinking. Obama Sr. was not a citizen of the United states, then that makes Obama purely ineligible to be President of the United States. Also, today, we have DNA. Obama's supposed siblings are still living. Couldn’t we send investigators to those countries where they reside and get DNA samples from Obama's half siblings. He supposedly has half siblings from the Obama Sr. side and half siblings from the mother's side in Indonesia....

    EIJING — When President Barack Obama landed in Beijing on Monday on his first state visit to China, his first order of business was family business. Before he headed to a formal dinner with China's President Hu Jintao, he set aside time to see his half brother, Mark Ndesandjo, and Ndesandjo's wife, who had flown up from the southern boomtown of Shenzhen where they live. Describing the meeting Monday as "overwhelming" and "intense," Ndesandjo told The Associated Press in an interview Wednesday that he had long anticipated the chance to welcome his famous brother to China.

    The sudden loss of memory, called “transient global amnesia” or TGA, is caused by pressure in blood vessels in the brain, and can be triggered by strenuous activities, bowel movements, or – commonly – sex. The 59-year-old woman, known only as Alice, had the worrying experience after she and her husband Scott had sex last August. She suddenly, albeit temporarily, lost all memory of the last several years and the ability to form new memories. After sex they turned on the television, which was showing the Beijing Olympics, and she asked: "Is there an Olympics?" Scott told CNN: "I saw...

    John Edwards, the Democrats' 2004 vice-presidential candidate and a potential Cabinet member for Barack Obama, tonight admitted that he had consistently lied about having an affair. Mr Edwards had been dogged by internet gossip, fuelled by anonymously sourced stories in the supermarket tabloid The National Enquirer, that he had an affair last year with Rielle Hunter, a film-maker, while running for president. It was also rumoured that he had fathered an illegitimate child in the relationship, an allegation he continued to deny in an interview with ABC News. In the interview Edwards confesses that he did have an affair with...

The certificate, obtained by The Charlotte Observer today, shows Frances Quinn Hunter was born Feb. 27, more than two months after an Edwards aide claimed to be the father. Andrew Young, a former Edwards campaign finance director, claimed paternity in a statement from his lawyer posted at the political blog mydd.com. The girl was born at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara, Calif., to Rielle Jaya James Druck, also known as Rielle Hunter. Hunter, 44, was a videographer on...

    With in-vitro fertilization (IVF) becoming more and more popular, an increasing number of children are at risk of being separated from their fathers. Ireland’s High Court recently ruled against giving any parental rights to a father whose sperm was donated and used in an artificial insemination, which resulted in the birth of his son. The father, a homosexual, donated sperm to the mother and her female partner, who are a lesbian couple. On April 17 the Irish Times reported that Judge John Hedigan held that the lesbian couple could be regarded as a de facto couple with rights under the...

My only relief was to turn to government assistance for housing, food, and other needs and I was able to survive with dignity. So chalk me up as one who no longer drinks the GOP koolaid.

    He was a family favourite, a harmless if over-the-top entertainer. Now he is a pariah who will spend the next few months in a filthy jail WANNA be in my gang? Gary Glitter sang in the 1970s, as thousands of children chanted their agreement. Yesterday, the once-adored glam rock star began a three-year prison sentence in Vietnam for molesting two underage girls, his glitter utterly tarnished by sordid sex crimes against children. Today that invitation to join Glitter’s gang seems to carry grim sexual overtones. In the annals of celebrity scandal, there has never been anything quite like Glitter’s passage...

    National Review Online ^ | 02/24/06 | William F Buckley Jr
    "I can tell you the main reason behind all our woes — it is America." The New York Times reporter is quoting the complaint of a clothing merchant in a Sunni stronghold in Iraq. "Everything that is going on between Sunni and Shiites, the troublemaker in the middle is America." One can't doubt that the American objective in Iraq has failed. The same edition of the paper quotes a fellow of the American Enterprise Institute. Mr. Reuel Marc Gerecht backed the American intervention. He now speaks of the bombing of the especially sacred Shiite mosque in Samara and what that...

    Ted Kennedy's alleged love child, Christopher Allen, appears to have corroborated The National Enquirer's claim that he's the son of the senator. The tab was unable to get the 21-year-old to talk last week, but he told us in an E-mail: "It is kinda shocking to finally find out who my real father is." Asked about the photo Wonkette.com posted of him, he said, "I don't remember taking a picture but then again, I have the classic Kennedy drinking problem." Sen. Kennedy's office has branded the Enquirer story "irresponsible fiction." …

    On a hot Saturday night last June, Don Brunner arrived home with his wife and took off the last suit and tie he'd ever wear, knowing that the life he had always led was about to end. The next morning, the New Milford plumber glanced one last time in the mirror and emerged from their split level - still very much a father and husband, but no longer a man. This is a story about a family that could have spun apart, but instead pulled together. It's a story about a stunned New Jersey town that could have spurned a...
  • (Woody) Allen Likes Playing Father to His Wife

    Acclaimed director Woody Allen loves the paternal feelings he has towards his young wife Soon-Yi Previn, and insists the massive age gap between them defuses any conflict in their marriage. The 69-year-old sparked an international scandal when he split up with his long-term partner Mia Farrow in 1992 after falling for her adopted daughter. Allen later married Previn, 35, and the couple have two children. Yet, the Manhattan filmmaker is unabashed when he admits that his relationship with Previn is paternal and he enjoys the power his successful life gives him in their relationship. He says, "(Our marriage) has a...

    WASHINGTON - Nearly 1.5 million babies, a record, were born to unmarried women in the United States last year, the government reported Friday. And it isn't just teenagers any more. ADVERTISEMENT [0] "People have the impression that teens and unmarried mothers are synonymous," said Stephanie Ventura of the National Center for Health Statistics. But last year teens accounted for just 24 percent of unwed births, down from 50 percent in 1970, she commented. The increases in unmarried births have been among women in their 20s, she said, particularly those 25 to 29.

    The South leads the nation in unwed births, which often ensure a lifetime of poverty for mother, child Southern states, including Georgia, often style themselves as the last bastions of traditional family values that other parts of the country abandoned long ago. Supposedly, this is still the kind of place where Mom, Dad and the kids traipse to church on Sunday and then show up at Grandmom's for chicken dinner. Unfortunately, the reality's a little different. According to a new U.S. Census Bureau report — the first to offer a state-by-state look at links between marriage, fertility and other characteristics...
