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.

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.

You just can’t please the apple-knockers, soreheads and doom-criers. Everyone who ever sat in a long line back in the 1970s, waiting for an hour or two to get a few gallons of gasoline, often entertained himself with a fantasy of big oil strikes to put the Saudi princes in their place, preferably on a planet in an obscure universe far, far away. Now, through the innovation of modern technology, we have that strike — not only oil, but something better, because it’s cheaper, cleaner and there’s lots of it. The Saudi princes are looking for a place to run.

Barack Obama is bored. You can see it in his demeanor and in his face, the way anticipation becomes melancholy. Most of all you can hear it in his voice when he steps up to make the speech that once sent audiences into frenzy. He’s mailing it in (with postage due). Being a messiah, a rock star, the Pied Piper of Hamelin, is of course hard work. Maybe we should cut the guy a break. You can’t be Mick Jagger or Kanye West every day.

It takes a fair bit of gall to accuse the media of lying about a sex scandal. It takes even more gall to then admit to the sex scandal, resign, claim you´ve redeemed yourself and decide to run again. And it takes the most gall to do all of those things, even as you´re engaged in a continuation of that sex scandal. But when your name is Anthony Weiner, gall is your middle name. Or perhaps Danger is. Weiner resigned from Congress in June 2011, but only after claiming that Andrew Breitbart had fabricated photos of his scantily clad body.

Atheism is in decline worldwide, with the number of atheists falling from 4.5% of the world’s population in 1970 to 2.0% in 2010 and projected to drop to 1.8% by 2020, according to a new report by the Center for the Study of Global Christianity at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in South Hamilton, Mass. In its report, Christianity in its Global Context, 1970-2020: Society, Religion, and Mission, researchers analyzed data on church membership and activities from thousands of Christian denominations and other religions worldwide, presenting that data from 1970 and 2010 for a 40-year comparison and,

"The First Black President ... Spoke First as a Black American," ran the banner headline of Sunday´s Washington Post. But why, when the fires of anger over the Zimmerman verdict were dying down, did he go into that pressroom and stir them up? "A week of protests outside the White House, pressure building on him inside the White House, pushed him to that podium," said Tavis Smiley on "Meet the Press." Black leaders demanded Obama come out of hiding and stand in solidarity with the aggrieved and outraged. Belatedly and meekly, Obama complied. "Trayvon Martin could have been me 35 years ago," said Obama.

You have entrusted me with the tremendous honor and responsibility to serve you as president. I am not president of black America, Hispanic America or white America. I am not president of liberal America or conservative America. I am president of the United States of America. Regrettably, as a nation, we have become divided.

Police Capt. Louis Renault, played by Claude Rains in the 1942 movie "Casablanca," in the wake of the shooting of a Nazi officer, ordered his men to "round up the usual suspects." Was Renault engaging in some sort of profiling? He may have been, but what is profiling? Let´s look at it. We can think of profiling as a method to economize on information costs by using easily observed physical characteristics as a proxy or a guess for some other characteristic more difficult or costlier to observe. For example, say you seek to hire people to manually unload trucks

Someone knocked on the door at city hall in Detroit last week and there stood the repo man, coming to take possession of the city. Everyone who has ever bought a car knows you have to keep up the payments. Miss three or four and the car, with all its bells and whistles, is gone. Detroit has built a lot of cars and so should have known better, but it had ignored the frantic calls. There’s not a lot to repossess in Detroit, a city that nobody wants. Detroit isn’t the first city in America to suffer the stigma

In his essay "Trouble in Paradise," in the July 18, 2013 issue of the London Review of Books, Slavoj Žižek explains that recent protests around the world are actually all about resistance to a common villain. This villain is not Lord Voldemort. Or even Obamacare. It is "global capitalism." Žižek takes a few moments to acknowledge that, well, yes, um, protests in Brazil, Turkey, Greece, Europe and the Middle East (not to mention the 1979 Iranian Revolution, which he holds to be a precursor) have each had their distinguishing characteristics.

A new survey finds that 42 percent of Americans say capitalism isn´t working well, and they complain about the encouragement of greed, the lack of equal opportunity and the creation of poverty and lasting inequality. The survey illustrates the country´s deep polarization. In a positive finding for Democrats who favor a strong government role in society, most Americans say government should do more to reduce inequality. But Republicans who want to limit government will find encouragement in that most Americans don´t have confidence in government´s ability to function effectively. Fifty-four percent of Americans think capitalism is working well, the survey says,

Zaatari, Jordan — Angry Syrian refugees confronted U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday with demands for the United States and the international community to do more to help opponents of President Bashar Assad´s regime, venting frustration at perceived inaction on their behalf. Visiting the sprawling Zaatari refugee camp in northern Jordan near the Syrian border, Kerry met six representatives of its 115,000-strong population, all of whom appealed to him for the U.S. and its allies to create no-fly zones and set up safe zones inside Syria to prevent the Assad regime from inflicting additional destruction.

White House insiders say President Barack Obama is in “a funk” about what he sees as increasing stagnation and failures surrounding his second term and some worry that the President is becoming more distant and distracted. “He’s not the same Obama that came to the Oval Office after the 2008 elections,” a senior White House aided confided to friends in an email recently. “I’m worried.” Chicago Mayor and former White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel tells friends that the Presidency has changed his longtime friend Obama and many of those changes are “not good.”

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

In warning about possible al Qaeda attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials may have provided too much detail about intercepted chatter and the source of the information, and that may make it more difficult to get such tips next time, former and current intelligence officials say.On Friday, the U.S. State Department issued a worldwide travel alert for Americans, citing an unspecified al Qaeda threat. The bulletin said that the highest threat levels are the Middle East and North Africa, “and possibly occurring in or emanating from the Arab Peninsula.”

Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language.

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not?

Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.
