Since they all have the IQ of a turnip, they´re all grossly overpaid. I want a tax rebate.

Saw some guy yesterday "fiddling" with the flag before Barky came out - like it needed fiddling, it looked fine.
I wondered how much he was getting paid.

Right on cue, after the Obama administration went out of their way to say that Hamas is not like ISIS, a Hamas spokesperson publically distanced Hamas from ISIS, noting they are very different organizations. Yahoo News reports: DOHA, Qatar—In an interview with Yahoo News, the political leader of Hamas today vigorously rejected any comparison to ISIL terrorists and pledged that the Palestinian militant group will start giving warnings to Israelis about impending rocket attacks in order to avoid the killing of innocent civilians.

On the Friday broadcast of “The McLaughlin Group,” columnist Pat Buchanan predicted that President Obama would grant amnesty to illegal immigrants via executive order by Labor Day and that such an action would “set the country completely on fire.” After Washington Examiner Chief Congressional Correspondent Susan Ferrechio argued that “Democrats could gain from Hispanic voters turning out, especially if the president decides to take key executive actions in this summer that would help Hispanics who are here in the country, perhaps living here illegally. That could boost popularity for the party,” Buchanan responded “executive amnesty will set the country completely

About 75 to 100 people gathered Saturday in southwest St. Louis to show support for the Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson, who fatally shot Michael Brown. About 20 people held signs with messages such as “Justice Comes In All Colors” and “We Support PO Wilson.” Some motorists driving by honked in apparent solidarity. Many in the largely white crowd wore T-shirts with a badge insignia. The gathering was on the parking lot and sidewalk outside Barney’s Sports Pub on Chippewa Street near Hampton Avenue. Some people interviewed at the rally said the public should withhold judgment on Wilson’s actions in the

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk issued this response on Twitter to the rocket explosion in McGregor: "Three engine F9R Dev1 vehicle auto-terminated during test flight. No injuries or near injuries. Rockets are tricky." This was the second test flight for the rocket. The first was April 17. It was successful to a height of 250 meters. This is the first time one of their rockets has exploded.

(Video) Timothy Marsh´s story does not have a happy ending, but it does have an important message. And his family agreed, two months after his death, to share the impact of the last emotional gift he gave his daughters. "Well I had every man´s dream life I guess," Marsh said in a June 2014 videotaped interview with River Pointe Church in Richmond where he and his family are members of the congregation. He was 51 years old. He had a successful career, a beautiful home. He and his wife Eleanor were parents to a blended family of seven children. But the diagnosis was colon cancer.

Iceland has issued a red alert to the aviation industry for the Bardarbunga volcano, meaning significant ash emissions are likely. The Icelandic Met Office has warned that a small eruption under an ice cap has begun at Bardarbunga. The air space over the site has been closed, but all Icelandic airports currently remain open, authorities say. Iceland´s Eyjafjallajokull volcano erupted in 2010, producing an ash cloud that severely disrupted air travel. The red alert is the highest warning on the country´s five-point scale.

Eric Holder, Racial Profiler

Why has a federal civil-rights murder investigation arisen out of the tumult in a St. Louis exurb? There is only one plausible reason: Eric Holder is guilty of racial profiling. To be clear, we are not talking here about whether there was justification for the shooting of a young black man, 18-year-old Michael Brown, by a young white police officer, 28-year-old Darren Wilson. Was the shooting a legitimate exercise in self-defense by an officer under attack? Was it an overreaction for which Officer Wilson should suffer serious civil and criminal consequences? Such questions can only be answered by a thorough

OAK BLUFFS — President Barack Obama and his family continued their vacation with a bang Friday night. The Obamas watched the town´s annual fireworks show with White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett and friends, according to pool reports. The presidential motorcade arrived at Jarrett´s waterfront home near the Lookout Tavern just after 7:45 p.m. This is the same place that the first family took in the fireworks show last year. The fireworks began around 9 p.m. Inside the nearby Lookout Tavern, the crowds cheered and hollered with glee as the president and their family made the brief walk from the street to

The same St. Louis police officer who was seen on CNN earlier this week pushing Don Lemon back during a live broadcast from Ferguson, Missouri, has been relieved of his duty after video emerged of an hour-long speech he delivered railing against African-Americans, the LGBT community and President Barack Obama. CNN reported the news about Officer Dan Page, who made the controversial remarks at an Oath Keepers meeting just months ago. “It’s wide-ranging inflammatory remarks about a lot of people, about women, about gay people,” Lemon reported. “He talks about the president of the United States.

Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American. But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind.

President Obama has few remaining friends—either in his own party or in the media.That’s the unmistakable conclusion of two pieces this week in the New York Times. Just about everyone, it seems, is down on his single, solitary nature.I’ve been saying for a year now that the president’s liberal media allies have soured on him.

We wuz robbed. Admit it, you neo-cons, paleo-cons, compassionates, country clubbers and decline-to-states: right now, in a just, moral, ordered universe, Mitt Romney should be President. He was right on Iraq and Benghazi, right on healthcare, immigration, and Russia. But he was so mendaciously smeared that voters possessed the ludicrous mindset that Mitt didn’t “care about someone like me.” Feckless Republican operatives allowed data-mining splashed with voter fraud to seal the defeat. Twenty months later, numerous polls indicate significant voter remorse. This genuine sentiment has naturally provoked calls of “Run, Mitt,

President Obama is still vacationing in Martha´s Vineyard as this is written. But he may have experienced a jolting encounter with a grim reality. The problem with Obama is too often there is no "there, there" with his words on foreign policy issues. Most infamously, he drew a red line Syria, warning of terrible consequences if the Assad regime used chemical weapons. Then, when the Assad regime did use chemical weapons, Obama unexpectedly deferred to Vladimir Putin to broker a deal that rendered the red line irrelevant. There is no doubt that Obama, to this point in his presidency, has been epically

Ferguson, MO - Conditions calmed this week in Ferguson after nights of sometimes violent unrest stemming from the fatal shooting of a black 18-year-old by a white police officer. But a delicate and crucial question lingers: What happens if the grand jury now considering the case doesn’t return a charge against the officer? The fear among some local residents and officials trying to maintain peace in Ferguson is that failure to charge the officer could stoke new anger among a community profoundly mistrustful of the legal system. Many say they just hope the grand jury’s decision, whatever it is, has irrefutable facts to back it up.

The Washington Post editorial board said Friday it will stop using the word “Redskins” when referring to Washington’s football team, joining a growing list of other commentators who have renounced the term because they believe it disparages Native Americans. In a statement, the board said, “While we wait for the NFL to catch up with public opinion and common decency we have decided not to use the slur ourselves except when it is essential for clarity or effect.” The editorial board is separate from the news-gathering side of the organization, which executive editor Marty Baron said will continue to use the team’s
