Thrifty Michelle Obama recycles
sequined Michael Kors dress
she first wore in 2009 as
proud President tells the crowd,
´I love my wife´s new bangs -
she always looks good!´

Daily Mail (UK), by Deborah Arthurs

Michelle Obama looked set for a stylish second term last night as she appeared on stage at the celebration reception for her husband´s inauguration wearing a stunning black sequined cocktail dress. Proving yet again that she is a winner in the style stakes, the First Lady glittered at the event in D.C., where she smiled indulgently at the man she clearly adores as he took to the stage to thank the assembled campaigners and benefactors. It wasn´t the first time the dress, a boat-necked sequin frock by U.S. designer Michael Kors, had had an airing.

The problem is those bangs need to come down lower...say to her bottom lip.

Thrifty? There is no such word with this family. If she was really this considerate, they wouldn´t be having this " ball". Here we are paying more in taxes and are into cost cutting , but the king has to have his coronation.

She has turned herself into a clone of Kerry Washington the actress whom Obama likes. I read where Kerry is not welcome at the WH. Michelle has never been thrifty. She is a clothes hog and loves designer clothes. She must think she looks good in this dress. She has become a real show off. I am tired of looking at them both. Will not watch the parade which is sad because so many of our American citizens have worked hard to get there. I just can´t watch.

The author of this article must have been laughing (or barfing) her way through the entire thing, especially since "Bangs" is Brit-speak for the Posturepedic Polka, not the fringe on ones forehead.

And, yes, it is a wig, an inappropriately youthful wig that is extremely unflattering and would have looked better on either Sausage or Malaria or whatever their names are.

Please mark your calendars. Could be a first that she or the girls wore something twice.

Remember you read it here first. That wig with bangs is covering up cosmetic surgery scars from the vacay. Nobody saw her while she was on vacation getting another overhaul.

The youngest child always seems like an outsider with her head down. Do they tell her she is overweight and not measure up to the new lifestyles of the rich and infamous ?

MOSCOW, Russia - Three Russian servicemen and four gunmen were killed in a shootout in southern Russia on Wednesday during a sweep for militants ahead of next month´s Sochi Winter Olympics. Russia´s National Anti-terrorism Committee (NAC) said the dead gunmen included a man accused of carrying out a car bomb attack in the city of Pyatigorsk late last year which killed three people. Russia is on high alert following two suicide bombings in southern Russia last month that fueled security concerns before the Olympics, which Islamist militants waging an insurgency in the North Caucasus have threatened to attack.

House passes $1.1-trillion budget bill

Party leaders pushed a massive $1.1 trillion spending bill for this year through the House on Wednesday, shunning the turmoil of recent budget clashes with a compromise financing everything from airports to war costs and brimming with victories and concessions for both parties. The huge bill furnishes the fine print — 1,582 pages of it — for the bipartisan pact approved in December that set overall spending levels for the next couple of years. With that decision behind them, the measure sailed through the House with no suspense and little dissent — fueled additionally by lawmakers’ desire to avoid an

Anecdotal accounts of young college grads working as baristas, bartenders or retail clerks are widespread, provoking questions about the economic logic of going to college, particularly if doing so means taking on a lot of debt. Now come some economists from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York with evidence that college grads between 22 years old and 27 years really are finding it tougher to find jobs that require a bachelor’s degree than has been the case in the past. “Such difficulties are not a new phenomenon,” the economists say in an essay published in the New York Fed’s latest

Senate report cites CIA, State

WASHINGTON -- A Senate investigation has concluded that officials at the State Department and U.S. intelligence agencies ignored “ample warnings” of danger and failed to do enough to prevent an attack by militants on a U.S. mission and CIA base in Benghazi, Libya, in September 2012. (Snip) “I hope this report will put to rest many of the conspiracy theories and political accusations about what happened in Benghazi,” Sen. Dianne Feinstein, chair of the committee, said in a statement. But the 85-page report, which was approved last month and declassified Wednesday, is unlikely to satisfy critics who contend that members

Harry Reid’s Obstructionism

It took a while, but the media seem to have finally noticed Senate majority leader Harry Reid’s unprecedented obstructionism. The New York Times reported last week on Reid’s “brutish style” and “uncompromising control” over the amendments process in the Senate. Why are more people finally catching on to Reid’s flagrant disregard for Senate customs? In part because conservatives aren’t the only ones complaining. Democrats such as Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota — who wants to repeal Obamacare’s medical-device tax — and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York — who has waged a highly publicized campaign to reform the way the military handles

Black dogs don´t get as adopted as easily as others animals of other colors. The reason is largely because of some common misconceptions about them. Black dogs are mischaracterized as mean and potentially violent and according to NBC News. Black Dog Syndrome is a phenomenon in which dogs with black fur often go unadopted because of misinformed stereotypes. Black dogs are are euthanized at a much higher rate than dogs with different complexions. Many owners of black dogs say they are sweet, lovable, but also unwanted. The chances of being adopted are poor if you´re a black dog.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee wants to ban the term "RINO" -- "Republican in Name Only" -- in the Republican Party. The former governor complained in a letter to supporters that during a recent social media outreach, he was disturbed that too many Republicans were attacking each other and calling them names. "Many of you used a term that I’d like to see outlawed from the vernacular of the party: RINO," he said, calling it a "pejorative term" that questioned one´s purity. Huckabee pointed out that he got a tweet from someone who complained that he was a RINO, which upset him. "With all

AUSTIN, Texas — In October, Susan, a woman who lives in Willacy County in Texas’ southernmost tip, found out she was pregnant. She is married and has three children, and for a few weeks last fall, she couldn’t afford her birth control. Her condition, to her, was not entirely good news. “I weighed out the pros and cons,” she said. “But I didn´t want to have another baby.” Susan asked her gynecologist about getting an abortion, but the doctor said she didn’t perform the procedure. For women in her area, there was only one place to go: Reproductive Services of Harlingen, where
