US pop legend Tina Turner, who has been living in Switzerland since 1995, will soon receive Swiss citizenship and will give up her US passport, Swiss media reported Friday. "I´m very happy in Switzerland and I feel at home here. ... I cannot imagine a better place to live," Turner told German language daily Blick. Turner, 73, who was born Anna Mae Bullock, lives in picturesque town of Kuesnacht, on the shores of Lake Zurich in northern Switzerland, and has passed a local civics test and interview, according to an official announcement published in the Zuerichsee-Zeitung daily.

Swiss cheese, redefined.

Lame, I know. Sorry. I actually don´t have much of a problem with Tina; she seems to have made lemonaid out of the king of lemons, if you get my drift. Some of those 80´s tunes were really bad, though.

I drank a couple pitchers with Ike´s other ex several years ago in San Diego. She was there doing a blues thing, and I was just hangin´ around...

Having been married to a real creep, I suspect she knows the score with Obama, and I can´t blame her for wanting to live a quiet life after all she went through with that pig ex of hers. Until we hear otherwise, I think we can give Tina a break here. She is a decent lady.

My son is closed to giving up his citizenship, as well. As a young man, brought up with liberal education of "one-worldness (despite my efforts the other way), he is a fiscal/mostly social conservative but he doesn´t see the advantage of allowing one country to take more than half of his earnings when another country, which he enjoys as well, will let him keep the fruit of his labor.

As with any dysfunctional relationship, sometimes you can love the other entity, but not be able to be in a relationship with it.

It is breaking my heart, but I don´t blame him. I blame the socialist country my beloved country has become.

Becoming Swiss takes a lot of money, so I understand, which is why it´s probably a great place to live. If I had the money I would seriously consider repatriating there. I´m sick and tired of the smothering bossiness that is the US (and most states) government.

How I hate to write this, but here goes...

Tina Turner is getting out of the U.S. while she still can. It´s only a matter of time - and sooner than you might think as our government quickly runs out of money - before the IRS and other agencies of the U.S. Government impose economic repression on American citizens. Then, no one will be able to move wealth out of this country.

The IRS is already bullying banks in countries around the world, forcing them to act as de facto IRS revenue agents. It has already become very, very difficult for Americans to open bank accounts overseas, even ex-pats who own businesses. This is happening right now. Wait five years, if you dare, and you´ll be stuck in Obama´s America.

If you live in a country for 18 years, and love it there, and your ol´ man is a citizen, then changing citizenship is a understandable consideration. She is upbeat about it, and really, it isn´t exactly hard biting news.

All rich liberals may flee the United States when they realize the ugly truth about liberalism: that it´s about taking the money of those who earned it and giving it to the ones who haven´t earned it. It´s a very simple equation, actually.

Tina has every right to become a citizen of the country that she obviously loves. More power to her. I wish many pseudo americans would do the same. Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin and anyone else who thinks there are better places to live can move there as fast as possible. I´m sure America can stand the loss.

Like it or not, the world is a dangerous place, and getting more so. None of the portents look good. Vladimir Putin not so subtly says, in ever louder voice, that he’s in charge of events now, and the rest of the world should just get used to it. When Vlad roars, the rest of the world squeaks. He was in louder voice than ever Thursday, reminding a televised forum in Moscow that his parliament has authorized him to use force “if necessary” in eastern Ukraine, which he called, for the first time, “New Russia.” Whether portent or not, leaflets

Atlanta – Vegetarians may have a lower BMI and drink alcohol sparingly, but vegetarian diets are tied to generally poorer health, poorer quality of life and a higher need for health care than their meat-eating counterparts. A new study from the Medical University of Graz in Austria finds that vegetarians are more physically active, drink less alcohol and smoke less tobacco than those who consume meat in their diets. Vegetarians also have a higher socioeconomic status and a lower body mass index. But the vegetarian diet — characterized by a low consumption of saturated fats and cholesterol that includes increased intake

Berkeley, Calif. — Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.” “I am here to tell you that if you own a cell phone, you’re under surveillance,” he told the crowd. Paul’s address at the Berkeley Forum on the campus of the University of California at Berkeley focused on the National Security Agency’s collection of telephone metadata and the debate over privacy.

A man was arrested after Las Vegas police said he pulled a gun on a group of entertainers from “Thunder from Down Under” at the Excalibur Tuesday night. The man, described as being between the ages of 25 and 30, went behind the stage and entered the “Thunder from Down Under” locker room about 9 p.m. According to police, he stole belongings from the group. Several performers from the show later confronted the suspect when they saw him with their property, police said. The suspect then pulled out a handgun and a struggle ensued. The gun was fired during the struggle, but police

Frustration with the search for missing flight MH370 boiled over into chaotic scenes as Chinese relatives were dragged away from journalists. They were attempting to speak to Chinese journalists outside the daily press conference in Kuala Lumpur. A BBC reporter was pushed away from the relatives, who were carrying banners criticising the handling of the case. Teams from 26 countries are trying to find flight MH370, which went missing on 8 March with 239 people on board. One of the relatives, a middle-aged woman, cried: "They give different messages every day! Where´s the flight now? Find our relatives! Find the aircraft!" The Malaysian government said

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia - The FBI is helping Malaysian authorities investigate deleted data on a flight simulator belonging to the pilot of the missing Malaysia Airlines plane, while distraught relatives of the passengers unleashed their anger Wednesday, wailing in frustration at 12 days of uncertainty. The anguish of relatives of the 239 people on Flight 370 boiled over at a briefing near Kuala Lumpur´s airport. Two Chinese women who shouted at Malaysian authorities and unfurled a banner accusing officials of "hiding the truth" were removed from the room. In a heart-wrenching scene, one woman screamed in sorrow as she was dragged

The Associated Press has stepped up its attack on White House efforts to block coverage of events involving President Obama, warning that once access is cut, “we´ll never get it back.” In the latest media charge that the White House has reneged on promises to be “transparent,” two of AP´s White House staff told a convention in Denver this week that the president´s team often bars coverage of Obama events because they are “hypersensitive” about his Image. At the Newspaper Association of America´s mediaXchange convention in Denver, AP White House photographer Charles Dharapak said that instead of letting reporters and photographers in

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
