    In a post published on Love What Matters, Billy Flynn explained: "It's my ex-wife's birthday today so I got up early and brought flowers and cards and a gift over for the kids to give her and helped them make her breakfast. "Per usual someone asked me why the hell I still do things for her all the time. "This annoys me. So ima (sic) break it down for you all." He went on to explain why he chooses to treat his ex like this and what he hopes to gain from it. "I'm raising two little men. The example...

    JOY WILLIAMS, THIS WEEK IN BLACKNESS: I want to ask something specifically. Towards the end of your explanation, you said the phrase "all lives matter," said the phrase "white lives matter." I want to ask you, do you understand the difference, in responding to that conservation, in that context with "all lives matter" or "white lives matter," when we are specifically talking about black death. That is not inclusive. MARTIN O'MALLEY: I certainly do, and in fact I believe that I first said was that black lives matter, before those other two phrases. And when I say those other two...

    Jerri Andersen wasn’t impressed by the Fourth of July fireworks display at her local Hy-Vee in Urbandale, Iowa. “Of course, it’s not their fault,” she said. And it isn’t. The supermarket was displaying the only types of fireworks people can buy or possess in Iowa without a special permit: sparklers and snakes. All other consumer fireworks were banned in Iowa 76 years ago, following devastating fires in Spencer and Remen. The ban wouldn’t have prevented either fire. Both are believed to have been started by reckless use of sparklers. Andersen, from Colorado where most fireworks are legal, eventually decided on...
  • EXCLUSIVE BREAKING ANALYSIS: Obama Still Can’t Throw a Baseball Correctly (VANITY)

    Obama’s lack of basic motor skills was on display Monday evening at a Little League game in Washington, D.C. He looked like he was trying to shot put a hacky sack, or something. The Little Leaguers were not impressed, the Associated Press reports: Shocked parents reached for their smartphones to snap a quick photo, but not all of their kids were as impressed. Some held back, unsure of who Obama was, as their parents tried to lure them back onto the infield to join the president. “Daddy, let’s just play,” said one young boy, pulling his father by the hand.

    Batter up! Obama pops in on Little League game WASHINGTON (AP) — Put down the juice box and lace up your sneakers. President Barack Obama is pinch-hitting for Little League. The president paid a surprise visit Monday to Washington's Friendship Park, where a handful of teams were warming up for the big game. Stepping onto the field in a tie but no jacket, Obama shook hands with the players and posed for photos with each team. "What's going on people? How's it going?" the president said, before sidling up to a young girl whose arm was in a sling. "Hey,...

    The former president says the current president may regret staying on the sidelines if Syria's war worsens In a rare split over foreign policy, former President Bill Clinton said President Obama risks looking like a "total wuss" if he lets public and political opposition to intervening in Syria dissuade him from taking decisive action to help rebels topple the Assad regime. "If you refuse to act and you cause a calamity, the one thing you cannot say when all the eggs have been broken is, 'Oh my god, two years ago there was a poll that said 80 percent of...

    Though he may be the “most powerful leader in the world,” President Barack Obama’s access to television is strictly controlled by his wife. “Sports is all I’m allowed to watch on TV,” Obama told reporters. “Even then, I’m limited to an hour or two here and there. Watching a whole game is a rare treat. Michelle doesn’t want me to be distracted from my mission.” The President admitted that he chafes under the restriction and occasionally “sneaks an extra peek when Michelle is not around,” but asked that it be kept secret lest “I lose what privileges she allows me...

    British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain held secret talks with Hitler's henchmen to work out ways of making the Nazis look more sympathetic to ordinary Britons, classified documents released last week reveal. The cloak-and-dagger meetings in London came shortly after Chamberlain signed his disastrous appeasement deal with Hitler in Munich in September 1938, declaring 'peace for our time' on his return to Britain. The meetings were held without the knowledge of the Cabinet and Foreign Office. Foreign Secretary Lord Halifax only learned of them later because of an MI5 mole in the German embassy. Two newly-declassified documents show Chamberlain was ready...

    Osama bin Laden used women as human shields as American forces fired on him in Pakistan on Sunday, White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said. Brennan told reporters at the White House that women were “put in front of him as a shield.” He said that “speaks to, I think, the nature of the individual he was.” One of the women was bin Laden's wife, Brennan said.

    The Washington Post ^ | 8/17/10 | Richard Cohen
    Last Friday, at the start of Ramadan, President Obama presided over the White House's annual iftar dinner and made some rather bland remarks about religious freedom. The context, of course, was the controversy over the proposed mosque in Lower Manhattan, which is not, as Obama insisted, about freedom of religion but about religious tolerance. And then, having once again gotten high praise for so very little, he went to bed a panicked man and reached, trembling, some hours later, for a political morning-after pill to take back some of what he had said. Whew, for a moment there he was...

    Rep. Weiner lashes out at GOP in fiery floor speechBy Jordan Fabian - 07/30/10 10:37 AM ET Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), who is known for his theatrics on the House floor, ripped Republicans Thursday night for voting against a healthcare bill for 9/11 respondents. The $4.7 billion aid legislation failed to pass the House Thursday night. Under House rules, it required a two-thirds vote to pass because it was placed on the suspension calendar, meaning that no amendments could be added. The procedure is usually used to pass non-controversial bills. Republicans objected to its placement on the suspension calendar, but...

    Youngstown congressman cancels meeting when protesters appear Wednesday, March 31, 2010 10:02 AM THE (YOUNGSTOWN) VINDICATOR YOUNGSTOWN -- A congressman canceled an informational meeting on the new health care law because of security concerns. Democratic U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan scheduled the meeting yesterday in Youngstown but called it off because his office was concerned about inadequate security. About 15 demonstrators, including Tea Party members, had showed up to protest the wide-ranging health care overhaul signed into law last week. Ryan's office says the meeting wasn't intended as a political forum and will be rescheduled.
