New Jersey Governor Chris Christie holds a narrow lead among Republicans for the party’s 2016 presidential nomination, but even more GOP voters say he’s the candidate they least want to see nominated. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote.
Could we please have someone who upholds the Constitution ? Could we please have someone who can add and subtract on a balance sheet ? Could we please have someone who wants to reduce the tax burden on small business ? Could we please have someone who has a sense of humor so they can laugh at the press when the ask such ´have you stopped beating your wife´ questions (Regan made the press look stupid with well aimed humor) and can we please have someone who is proud of this country and doesn´t hate people based on their level of success or color of their skin. All of that is missing in the current occupant of the White House.
Number 5, the answer is not if they attended our public schools. I do not know what they teach in private schools, but love of country, reading, writing and arithmetic and the Constitution are not seriously taught in our public schools. And the propaganda is non-stop.
Glad even at this early stage that conservatives are showing dislike for Christiobama. Can´t imagine another Bush. And, Rubio is not going to have a chance after he was rolled by Schumer and McCain. Paul will prob keep his Dad´s numbers and limited appeal. Dont know enough about Gov Walker on the big stage but get his newsletters. Interested in Cruz. I am not going to support a Bush/Christie ticket. My lack of support for Bush is not due to immigration. I actually favor a limited immigration bill. Cut to the bone without Los Vegas or any pork and no blanket amnesty but plenty of border control. We must secure the borders against...not workers..but against terrorists.
Scott Walker out of Wisconsin seems like a decent guy. He fought the unions and won. He did not back down.
Cruz is great. I love how forthright he his and how he´s not afraid. I think that media would crucify Cruz. Cruz and ANY conservatives will have to run 2 campaigns one for election and one against the media.
I held my nose and voted for McCain and Romney but no longer. If the GOP nominates Bush, Christie or Rubio I will vote for a third party candidate for the first time. The GOP elite and Rinos want nothing to do with the Tea Party. They want to just rule like the Democrats and to hell with the Constitution. Another loss is in the works get ready for that fool hillary to be the next President. She will cement all the communist, far left, progressive illegal policies, directives of obama.
#4 Dittos! The GOP does not want a conservative, with a steely spine, as their nominee, as evidenced by how badly they treat conservatives. Which is one reason why I left the GOP a long time ago. The only reason I remain a registered "R" is to vote in the primaries, although a lot of good that does anymore.
To #5´s excellent summation might I add Q-U-I-E-T. Get out of our faces and off TV. I would really like an executive - governor, business leader - not a legislator, especially a senator. Someone like Calvin Coolidge.
Cruz - love him, Rubio - past his sell by date, and Jindal are not eligible. Both parents were not citizens at birth. In fact, only Cruz had at least one who was an American citizen at birth...but he was born in Canada.
Hmm ~ Christie ~ he reminds me a lot of Romney. When the guy got his big break and ran against nobody else in the Virginia primary, he got about 10% of the vote.
The problem the GOP-e has is they imagine they run the party ~ but they don´t ~ they´re just another faction, and a small one at that.
As Jefferson proved, you must not only have good candidates, you must have a political party that gets it´s own fanbase out to vote for those candidates. That means you must have candidates that appeal to the fanbase.
2014 is the ´concentration´ point now--not 2016. Who is paying for these polls at the early date? We know daily kos pay for PPPs´ lefty polls, but who is supplying the funds now? This is how most who watch the MSM/LSM pick their choice without any other knowledge about them.
I´m with #15. It´s way too early to be taking 2016 polls and for prospective voters to be deciding to stay home. I´ll find a candidate I like, I´ll work for that person and hope he/she gets the nomination, but whomever gets the GOP nod, there is no way I would stay home and sacrifice my precious vote. I can hold my nose and pull the lever and be thankful that I still have the right to cast my ballot.
I´m staying home in my recliner if it´s not Ted Cruz for the nomination. My knees aren´t healed and too many scars from all the crawling on glass to vote. It´s over. I´m wouldn´t vote for the big bloated, buffet eating Chris Christie if my life depended on it.
Is Cruz eligible? I´ll leave it to him to answer...
"Sen. Ted Cruz rejected questions Sunday over his eligibility to be president, saying that although he was born in Canada “the facts are clear” that he’s a U.S. citizen. “My mother was born in Wilmington, Delaware. She’s a U.S. citizen, so I’m a U.S. citizen by birth,” Cruz told ABC."
Both Cruz and OBAMA had fathers that were not born in USA - if Barack was eligible so is Ted.
I had no problem voting for Mitt Romney. He is a good man just like Paul Ryan. They are sensible people and care about the USA. I´m not going to agree with every position they hold but I do respect them.
The people who stay home because a candidate doesn´t agree with them 100% is a vote for the other party. I just have to wonder how family matters are handled when a family member doesn´t agree with them? If I don´t care for an attitude, I call their respective office.
I will vote for Christie if he ends up being our candidate. In the primaries, that would be a different story.
The country is hungry for a principled leader who will advance a traditional agenda...see how I did that? Use the word conservative and the media will tear into him. Bring along those old fashioned democrats that realize this country is going in he wrong direction. They understand traditional America. It is conservative America but the media has made the word conservative equal to racist. Make the clear choice by putting someone out there who can harken back to a time when we were a prosperous, respected country that values freedom. It is going to take a fearless happy warrior to take on the media who will portray any Republican as mean and racist. Please no more RINO´s, that would be the kiss of death. We have to wrest this country away from the ruling class. Re-treads won´t do it. Cruz is very appealing. Gov. Susana Martinez of Mew Mexico would be a great running mate. Whoever the nominee is he/she has to go for the jugular with a smile on his/her face.
I have reached ´don´t care´ moments in my life. I think of the song by Phil Collins,"I don´t care anymore" that I played to my first wife before the divorce, so loud it shook the house. I think of Vietnam while carrying my dead buddies back to fire base in a poncho. I think of companies I worked for before becoming self sufficient. And now I have reached ´don´t care´ with this Republican Party. Chris Christie, what a joke. Yes a few bright spots, Ted Cruz, Pat Mccrory, and Scott Wallker. Thats about it.
Well you can tell ev´ryone I´m a down disgrace Drag my name all over the place. I don´t care anymore. You can tell ev´rybody ´bout the state I´m in You won´t catch me crying ´cos I just can´t win. I don´t care anymore I don´t care anymore
I won´t be there anymore Get out of my way Let me by I got better things to do with my time I don´t care anymore I don´t care anymore
´Cos I remember all the times I tried so hard And you laughed in my face ´cos you held all the cards. I don´t care anymore. And I really ain´t bothered what you think of me ´Cos all I want of you is just a let me be. I don´t care anymore D´you hear? I don´t care no more
I won´t be there no more So get out of my way. Let me by I got better things to do with my time I don´t care anymore D´you hear? I don´t care anymore I don´t care no more.
Ted Cruz would be my hands down choice because of his conservatism. While,he has no real managerial experience that I can see, I think he is so bright, that wouldn´t be a problem. I also like Martinez, Governor of New Mexico. If as we are being told we need to court Hispanics. Martinez sounds pretty conservative when she speaks, but I am not sure what her record in New Mexico is.
But as others have said, 2014 is WAY MORE critical at this point than 2016.
PS. I still don´t believe Conservatives did not vote against Zero Nero. I firmly believe this last election was stolen by the Dems who are masters at fraud, deception, data mining and programming our now "computerized" voting systems.
I´m at the point where I believe the country is lost and the only hope is a constitutional conservative to ´stop´ it. If Christie is the nominee then he or Hillary will be the ones to finish the nation off. It will make no difference. Elections are stolen, we have one party rule and the Republicans look and act like democrats. It´s all about power and theft for certain individuals. If the pols don´t listen to the people, elections won´t matter it leaves us with one choice, armed insurrection but that won´t happen.
Talk of staying home or voting Third Party gladdens the hearts (if they have one) of the Dem/Lefties.
I used to be registered Independent, switched for a primary many years ago, then never re-registered as R. But now, i, too, am on the verge of changing again.
True, "moderates" have pushed us down the big government path, but compared to the LEFT-WING Dem Party... We will not survive another BO.
Our fight has to be engaged right now, get people informed, call our legislators to complain when they´re wrong, to encourage when they make the right, Constitutional, free market, liberty-centered decisions.
FIRST: there is WAY too much in-fighting, too much airing dirty laundry in public to the thrilling enjoyment of the Dems and media (one and same), too much fractiousness without anyone producing a coherent, intellectually sound enunciation of a Conservative political philosophy.
All of this bombastic circular firing squad mayhem serves to weaken whomever our candidates are. Priebus is nice. But nice will not work against the hard Left: they´re laughing their heads off.
dang it all. this has been said again and again and again... try to keep the faith. pray.
#19 - due to peculiarities in the law, Obama would be a US citizen if born overseas only if his mother was unmarried at the time.
Cruz´ mother was married to a foreign national at the time of his birth overseas. They probably took care of his ´naturalization´ when his father became a citizen as well ~ after living here the requisite number of years as a legal alien.
Today the law is different. Baby born to an American woman overseas is an American citizen at birth ~ whether she´s married or not.
Cruz is not eligible! That´s because his mommy was married to the daddy.

How many times have I been dissed by my chosen Republican candidate? Let me count the ways.
As far as voting for the less undesirable candidate; I´ve done that all my life. I´ll no longer be treated as if I´m on the Democrat plantation. If we´re going to get a flaming RINO I won´t be part of it.
Those who refuse to vote against Hitlery remind me of the women who used to call in to Dr. Laura and say they were having an abortion. She would ask them if they had considered adoption. Oh, no, they could never give up their baby to adoption. “But you can kill it?” the Dr. would reply.
The same goofies are saying they won´t vote if they don´t get their candide. They will sit on their rears at home and let the dems take over the whole congress WH and media. That will teach those rinos, that same tired stupid name calling anyone a rino that does not sit home and pout because their person was not nominated. Hope all enjoyed 8 years of obamz.
At this point, the choice between Dems and RINOs is one of degree. With Dems, the country will become Detroit in 20-30 years; with RINOs, 30-40. The parade of liberalism is inevitable. As libs ruin states (CA for example), they flee across state lines to other, better managed states, but bring their liberal politics with them and ruin new ones (Colorado for example). Slowly and inevitably, so many states will become "blue" states that the rest won´t matter. We´re almost there already. Then the decline will accelerate.
There was a phony poll the other day that just made up data on how the public rated Presidential contenders. Of course Obama´s pretend Republican buddy Chris Christie was rated on top, Hillary (the Benghazi know nothing) was second, Elizabeth Warren (the cigar store Indian), was third and Obama came in last.
I know this was a biased, made up political poll, probably aimed at low information voters because Obama was on the list (and Warren). Perhaps the purpose of the poll was just to list Christie on top of any poll.
#41, there is a wide gulf between actively working for a candidate and simply sitting back hoping the right person lands in the R slot. When a person does the sitting back schtick, others are doing the selecting It´s too easy and a copout to say the "establishment", the "RINOS´, the RNC, the "media", the "Dems" chose our nominee, therefore I will not support that person. It´s lots more fulfilling to help with the selection.
We need a third party...the freedom party. Conservative, small government, constitutionally oriented, fiscally responsible, and opportunity for all that work hard. This is a message that will sell. All the Freedom party has to do is run against Detroitism, or the complete failure of extreme liberalism. There is nothing progressive in urban, social and moral decay as we have witnessed in Detroit.
As for that governor from NJ. He was dead to me the day he embraced Obama to get bucks from the Federal Government to ensure his re-election. What a complete CREEP! He threw the race and ensured we have another 4 years of retrenchment, no growth, huge budget deficits, the disastrous Obamacare, Islamic totalitarian expansion, and continued fundamental change to socialism under zero. All for a few bucks to rebuild some boardwalks. I will NEVER vote for that CREEP!
As a young man I originally registered as a Democrat. A good friend of mine insisted I should become a Republican. (Back in the old south, if you registered as a Republican you never got to vote. Everyone running was Democrat.) Well I became a Republican. When Ronald Reagan came along, this "republican" insisted Bush was the better candidate because "he could win and had national and international experience(sic!)". Another good friend whom I respected said he was moving to Canada if Reagan was elected because he was a war mongerer. Reagan had it rough. But he stuck to his guns and made the argument for conservatism. The rest is history.
I have had it with these guys that want to have their cake and eat it to. Out with Rubio, Christie. McCain and Romney are losers and need to shut up and go away. They had their chance. I like Rand Paul and I really like Cruz, so far. Curiously, he never shows up on any Republican sponsored surveys, like they are trying to freeze him out of the Club.
Every time I hear Christie´s name, I can picture him walking side-by-side with the evil kenyan and loving it, like they were BFF. I want a candidate who hates obama like I do and would refuse to be seen with him.
We had better get that third party started now if we want to have a chance in 2016. There´s no such thing as starting too early if you want to defeat the enemy.
Conservatism is not an economic, religious or social philosophy. Rather it is an attitude toward natural law, a transcendent moral order, tradition, organic unity, personal responsibility; among others. As such, it has absolutely nothing to do w/republicanism; which is nothing but cheap politics engaged in by low lifes. More and more, but not enough, grasp that the GOP´s terminal condition is a direct function of it´s absence of principle. A blowhard like Christie is testament to that reality.
Not to worry since the doughboy is being fitted for the wh oval orriface closet knee pads. The delay is in finding enough material to make a matching ( in color not in over super size ) Blue Dress to match lil´ jonny mc-cain´s lacy one. Note: Lil´ jonny served Uncle Ho with hanoi jane and lurch Hyphens not optional when referring to demos.
I was a Goldwater girl in California in the 60´s and lived in Sacramento when Reagan was governor. I liked Reagan and voted for him for president but I have to tell you, you have an idealized version of Reagan that you´re putting forward. He was much more like chris Christie than like Ted Cruz. I like both.
I was able to handle Gov. Christie until after Hurricane Sandy when he was on camera giving the Obie Won the bear hug. I guess a guy will do what he has to do to get hurricane relief funding, but, my gosh, it was hard to stomach this lovey dovey stuff.
Clear out the Bush and related cronies. Avoid anyone who listens to Karl Rove.
Let me see who is still left.
Christie remains more conservative or less liberal and big government oriented, and more accomplished as governor than either Jeb or our most recent severely conservative nominee.
Look to the governors---- Jindal, Walker ( although his lack of a college diploma at some point will cause huge problems among people who get their opinions from Jon Stewart and Bill Maher) Perry..... and Newt.
One or two of those people will excel in Iowa and New Hampshire. Time for a populist conservative again.
#16 started off with an important point, but made a wrong turn thereafter. The stay at home crowd got us into this mess, with help from fraud and the media. If everyone who recognized that Obama was dangerous had voted against him, he´d have lost. The time to demand a better candidate is during the primaries. Once the candidates are set, you have to save us from Hillary. Many criticize Romney, but he doesn´t hate this country and he wouldn´t have tried to find ways to destroy it. Hillary is Obama´s ideological soul mate. She has to be stopped.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

JOHANNESBURG — Police in South Africa say retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu´s home was robbed while he was away to attend a memorial honoring Nelson Mandela. A statement Wednesday from the South African Police Service said the robbery of Tutu´s home in Cape Town happened between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tuesday. That was the day the Nobel Peace Prize laureate and foe of apartheid spoke at the memorial service at a soccer stadium in Soweto township of Johannesburg. Retired Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu and musician Bono wave to mourners during the memorial service for former South African president Nelson Mandela
John Podesta is a revolving-door corporate lobbyist. He´s also a former Bill Clinton fixer and opposition research consultant for the Democrats. So it’s fitting President Obama has officially brought Podesta onto the White House staff.Read the major newspaper accounts of Podesta´s hire, and you´ll learn he was Bill Clinton´s last White House chief of staff. Omitted from the news stories on Podesta´s hire in the New York Times, Washington Post, the Associated Press, and Reuters: Podesta founded a lobbying firm his brother still runs; he was a corporate lobbyist more recently than he was a White House chief of staff;
From a distance of three and a half years, the events of March 23, 2010, the day President Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law, seem like something from another world.On that day, the Democrats who gathered in the East Room of the White House for the signing ceremony could barely contain their joy. They cheered, they laughed, they shouted, they pumped their fists, they wouldn´t sit down. They chanted "Fired up -- ready to go!" as they had at Obama campaign rallies. When the president recognized Nancy Pelosi, then speaker of the House, the chant
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
pending on credit card accounts used by staff in Nigella Lawson and Charles Saatchi´s household was not scrutinised for several years, Saatchi´s accountant has told the fraud trial of the couples´ former assistants, Francesca and Elisabetta Grillo.The statements of cards issued by Coutts bank to the Grillos and three other assistants – together known as "Team Cupcake" – were not checked before the bills were settled by Saatchi on direct debit. The court previously heard claims the bills on the cards that were issued for household spending, rose as high as £100,000 per month. The Grillo sisters are accused of fraudulently
Newspapers, including this one, are among the last places in America that has close to zero tolerance for [expletive deleted].I could give you a hint about what word is between the brackets, but I´d best not for fear of arousing the ire of the editing Comstocks. About twice a year, I quote a profanity from a public figure, using just the first letter of the word and then some bowdlerizing asterisks for the rest. No dice, my editor tells me. This is a family newspaper.There was a time when such standards were the norm at major media institutions in America.
A growing clutch of lawmakers from both sides of the aisle is publicly countering the Obama administration’s portrayal of al Qaeda as an organization on the run, saying that an evolving network of the terrorist group’s affiliates now may pose as grave a threat to the U.S. as its predecessor did a decade ago. While some have outright accused President Obama of pushing a “false narrative” to protect his reputation as the man who got Osama bin Laden, others focus on fears that a new breed of decentralized al Qaeda-style groups may control more safe haven territories in the Middle East
"I will be pleased to have you visit," read the email that landed in my inbox this spring. It was signed, " Bernard Madoff. "That exchange led to a two-hour meeting in May with the most notorious fraudster on Wall Street, during which Mr. Madoff pointed fingers at others and said his decadeslong Ponzi scheme wasn´t really his fault. He was dismissive of regulators and whistleblowers, calling Harry Markopolos —a fraud investigator who warned the Securities and Exchange Commission about Mr. Madoff—an "idiot." The federal prison in Butner, N.C., looks more like a small college campus than a penitentiary.
LONDON — Scores of flights were delayed or canceled at Britain´s busiest airports Saturday because of a technical problem at a main air traffic control center. National Air Traffic Service, which controls the crowded airspace over England, said it was having a problem switching between nighttime and busier daytime operations at its control center in Swanwick, southern England. Spokeswoman Juliet Kennedy said the glitch was preventing staff opening new control positions to deal with busier daytime traffic, meaning the service was struggling to handle the volume of flights. "At the moment we don´t know when we will be able to
Big Brother may be watching you. But Glenn Greenwald is watching Big Brother. That´s not a bad take on how the 46-year-old constitutional-law attorney turned crusading journalist turned thorn in the side of the NSA might describe his mission. At least in part. Greenwald is doing more than just watching. By combing through the tens of thousands of classified NSA documents leaked to him by Edward Snowden -- and publishing in newspapers around the globe report after report on the secretive agency´s mass-spying activities -- he´s got the whole world watching too.
The Maryland official who directly oversaw the rollout of Maryland’s health insurance exchange resigned Friday amid continuing technical problems that have hampered the state’s online enrollment efforts.After an emergency session Friday night, the board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange accepted the resignation of Rebecca Pearce, its executive director, and thanked her in a statement for working “tirelessly and with tremendous dedication” for more than two years. In recent weeks, the lagging enrollment and online glitches have embarrassed the administration of Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) and become a political liability
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats.

The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
Say goodbye to the 60-watt incandescent bulb. This year manufacturers started phasing out 100w and 75w bulbs. On January 1 it will become illegal to import or manufacture traditional 60w and 40w bulbs too. Time to stock up? Not so fast. First, check out Cree’s energy-sipping new 75-watt replacement bulb. I used to be outraged over the federal government’s draconian moves to outlaw traditional lightbulbs. For 100 years we’ve lived and thrived under the warm glow of incandescent lightbulbs.

SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. -Officials at Shaw Air Force Base are trying to determine what to do about a holiday display after a Nativity scene was taken down last week. Air Force spokeswoman Lt. Keavy Rake said Tuesday a Nativity display was set up Friday by a group of volunteers from the base chapel at a small lake on the installation. The site was near where a tree lighting ceremony was scheduled Friday evening. Rake says the Military Religious Freedom Foundation lodged a complaint about the display through the Air Force in Washington. Paul Loebe, spokesman for the foundation, said
