In Honor Of July 4th: Top 9
Things Americans Have Perfected

Daily Caller, by Hannah Bleau

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/4/2014 2:38:24 PM

Americans aren’t just innovators. We’re perfectionists. In honor of the nation’s 238th birthday, here are the top nine things Americans have perfected. 1. Waffles and pancakes: Everyone thanks Belgium for their delicious waffles, and by all means, we Americans commend them. But half of the wonder of waffles is the glorious mess you can put on top of it. It’s not just syrup anymore. You can thank Americans for the massive globs of heavy whipping cream, chocolate chips, bananas, walnuts, cheesecake filling and coconut shreds. We’re not fat. We’re happy.(Snip for photo) 2. The art of stair climbing: In the

Can´t fool me, Hannah. You make it sound like a compliment, but in reality you´re just saying we´re fat and lazy.

I wonder whether Hannah left #1, freedom, off the list, because she knew that without it she wouldn´t have the right to write her snark.

Sadly, I doubt it.

Agree with commenters above. Snarky and nasty attempt at humor.
Life is meant to be experienced and enjoyed. Those things mentioned in the article are part of that.
For those like the author who seem to be happier being miserable, she will have no problem finding kindred spirits. As for me, I prefer to be around fun people and do fun things, most of which involve the senses in one way or another. I´ll not waste this gift I was given by not using it.

North Carolina´s nondescript, virtually
unnoticed, hugely important Senate race
Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/11/2014 5:30:36 AM     Post Reply
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Thom Tillis thought his last day as Speaker of the North Carolina House would be weeks ago, after which he would devote all his energies to running for the U.S. Senate. Instead, on Saturday morning, August 2, Tillis stood gavel in hand in the state House chamber, presiding over the passage of a budget that kept lawmakers at work well into the summer. Now, finally, he is finished -- unless something else comes up to demand his time at the State Legislative Building. Republicans have bemoaned the fact that their candidate was tied down in the state house,

Rick Silva began his investigation at the end of an alley, on a hot day in L.A.´s Westlake community. Driving down a busy thoroughfare, he spied water runoff on a sidewalk. The manager replied that the runoff was from the cleaning of barrels for sanitation purposes. He added that the facility used water-saving pressure hoses for the job. Silva smiled. The place checked out. Silva is a water cop in the city´s Water Conservation Response Unit. While other kinds of investigators follow fingerprints or eyewitness accounts, Silva follows the water, patrolling the streets of Los Angeles in search of wasteful

As we reported earlier, the community in Ferguson, Missouri, was outraged after an unarmed teenager was shot and killed by police. Protests reached a crescendo Sunday night that broke into violence, looting, and reports of gun shots. Police responded with tear gas, and have arrested many, but for many hours into the evening, several stores were left to the mercy of opportunistic looters. Social media caught much of the chaos: (videos, photos)

Obama’s Economy In Action!
Data Shows Cash For Clunkers
Was An Epic Debacle
Daily Caller, by Eric Owens    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/10/2014 5:26:38 AM     Post Reply
“Cash for Clunkers,” the 2009 Obama administration stimulus program designed to spend $2.85 billion to jumpstart the auto industry, turned out to be a complete disaster — for the auto industry. In the minds of Obama’s team of advisers and economists, the program made total sense, of course. The plan was to dangle a $4,500 credit to persuade car owners to trade in their older automobiles for new cars with better fuel efficiency. It would stimulate an economy then in the midst of a deep recession. As a bonus, it would mean less oil consumption and cleaner-running cars. The law of unintended

A Bug Is Making People Allergic To Meat,
And Doctors Don´t Know If It´s Permanent

A bug can turn you into a vegetarian, or at least make you swear off red meat. Doctors across the nation are seeing a surge of sudden meat allergies in people bitten by a certain kind of tick. This bizarre problem was only discovered a few years ago but is growing as the ticks spread from the Southwest and the East to more parts of the United States. In some cases, eating a burger or a steak has landed people in the hospital with severe allergic reactions. Few patients seem aware of the risk, and even doctors are slow to recognize it.

For me, watching the Food Network was always an easy escape from the stresses of daily life. There was just something calming about watching chefs in action, and this network had perfected Zen cooking. They’d often use a natural-light filter that made food appear delectable, as if the chefs were blissfully cooking their culinary delights in the sunlit designer kitchen of a tastefully decorated, impeccable home somewhere in the Hamptons. (Well, with Ina Garten, that actually is the case.) I’ve never been anywhere near a sunlit designer kitchen in the Hamptons, but I still found it all oddly soothing. I’d

Speaking at the U.S.-Africa Summit earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry had a bit of astonishing advice for African leaders. While noting that Africa faces a starvation problem, he also admonished its leaders not to create more farms. The reason? Adding more farms would contribute to “global warming.” Yeah, he really said that: “Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place. It’s a twisted circle. Always complicated. But we also know that there are certain ways to change that. For example, rather than convert natural areas to new farmland, a process

An ill Navy skipper allegedly shirked his duties by holing up in his cabin on a San Diego-based cruiser for weeks on end — effectively leaving his crew leaderless. Capt. Gregory W. Gombert was also having an inappropriate relationship with the warship´s acting executive officer, Lt. Cmdr. Destiny Savage, according to a recent Navy investigation. The "unduly familiar" relationship disturbed much of the USS Cowpens´ 330-member crew, authorities said. The results of the investigation, which were reported in U-T San Diego, show that Gombert´s ailments should not have prevented him from leading the ship from early January until March. "The

GUATEMALA CITY — Guatemalan law enforcement officials, supported by U.S. agencies, arrested nine top members of an alleged "coyote" human smuggling organization and seized $600,000 held in U.S. banks. The arrests Wednesday were the first here of coyote leaders since Guatemala President Otto Perez Molina visited President Obama during a July 25 summit with Central American leaders that focused on the immigration crisis on the U.S. border with Mexico. The arrests provoked an outcry among some Guatemalans who see the coyotes — people paid to smuggle others into the United States — as trusted members of their community who provide a needed

Awful, predictable, and awfully predictable: Two illegal immigrants from Mexico who were charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent in front of his family in Texas have been arrested and deported numerous times, police sources told FoxNews.com. One suspect has been arrested no fewer than four times for entering the U.S. illegally, according to federal court records. The other has been deported twice after entering the U.S. illegally, sources said.

Alumni from colleges around the country have their own little ways of remembering their university in a way that’s unique from other schools. From ‘Cuse (Syracuse University) to Mizzou (University of Missouri), university students and graduates can refer to their alma mater in a way which connotes affection. And that’s just what University of Mississippi students and alumni thought they were doing when they referred to their school as “Ole Miss.” But not so, according to a “very small percentage” of those with ties to the school – because they say the nickname associates the school with “negative race issues.” UM Chancellor Dan

The decision by Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) not to seek election in November in the wake of a plagiarism scandal is the latest piece of good news for Republicans as they strive to take control of the Senate in less than three months. Walsh’s departure from the race came in the same week that two Republican senators — Pat Roberts in Kansas and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee — defeated tea party challengers in primary fights, ensuring that every GOP senator seeking reelection would be the party’s nominee. These past seven days typified the fates of the two parties this election

Oscar winner and comedian Robin Williams died this morning at 63. While his publicist wouldn’t confirm that it was a suicide, they did issue this statement. “Robin Williams passed away this morning. He has been battling severe depression of late. This is a tragic and sudden loss. The family respectfully asks for their privacy as they grieve during this very difficult time.” Williams, who won an Oscar for his supporting role in Good Will Hunting, will reprise his role as Theodore Roosevelt in the third installment of Night at the Museum this December.

Barack Obama deliberately set out to lose the war in Iraq, and he did. He defied the advice of his joint chiefs of staff to secure America’s formidable military presence and keep 20,000 troops in country, and left Iraq to its own devices and the tender mercies of Iran. In doing so, he betrayed every American and Iraqi who gave his life to create a free Iraq and keep it out of the clutches of the terrorists. Iraq is now a war zone dominated by the terrorist forces of the Islamic State, whose rise Obama’s policies fostered. Both his secretaries

Bill and Hillary Clinton are making the most of their downtime in the Hamptons. The former U.S. President and his ex-Secretary of State wife were pictured this morning enjoying a stroll on the beach in Amagansett, where they are paying $100,000 to rent an $18million five-bedroom property for three weeks. The couple, who were accompanied by their dogs as well as a Secret Service agent, were dressed in very casual clothes, with President Clinton decked out in black SoulCycle shorts and green sneakers and his wife in a bright blue muumuu and slippers. Mrs Clinton, 66, kept her eyes shaded from the sun

Rosie O’Donnell, the past and future co-host of The View, on Friday reaffirmed her support of the 9/11 truther conspiracy theory. When asked by this writer if she continues to reject the idea that Muslim terrorists flew planes into buildings, O’Donnell tweeted in response, “i still do not believe the official story.” [See below for a screen shot of the tweet.] O’Donnell left The View in 2007 after battling with conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

A terrifying jihadist group is conquering and butchering its way across big swaths of Iraq and Syria. Planes are falling out of the sky on what seems like a weekly basis. Civilians are being killed in massive numbers in the Israel-Gaza conflict. Others are falling prey to Ebola in West Africa. The world, in short, is falling apart. That’s how it feels, at least, to those of us who sit at a blessed remove from the death and destruction, but who are watching every bloody moment of it via cable news and social media. It raises an important question: In an

When he was running for re-election in 2012, President Barack Obama repeatedly took credit for ending the war in Iraq and bringing all U.S. troops home from that country. At the White House on Saturday, however, when talking about his decision to use military force against the al-Qaida-related ISIS terrorist group in Iraq, Obama said removing all U.S. troops from Iraq was not “my decision.” “You know I say what I mean and I mean what I say,” Obama said in Hollywood, Florida on Nov. 4, 2012. “I said I´d end the war in Iraq. I ended it.” That statement

It didn´t take long for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to embrace amnesty again. As soon as he won his Senate primary election against conservative Joe Carr, Alexander said it was "embarrassing" that Republicans have not yet passed a bill. Never mind that Alexander spent nearly his entire primary campaign trying to convince voters that he was against "amnesty" and would never dare to embrace it before the primary election. “I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term," Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and

A 40-year political career came to a close after Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie lost his bid for a second term in a stunning primary-election defeat by a fellow Democrat and state senator who defied party leadership to challenge the incumbent. A second intraparty fight for U.S. Senate was too close to call. State Sen. David Ige, once seen as an underdog, cruised to a decisive 35 percentage point win in Saturday´s primary after being dramatically outspent by Abercrombie, who also had high-profile endorsements including President Barack Obama. Ige said his win "proves that people power can be money power, especially in Hawaii."

An Isis commander at a terrorist training camp north of Baghdad accidentally detonated a belt packed with explosives during a demonstration in front of a group militants on Monday, killing himself and 21 nearby trainees. The accident was a source of dark humour for locals, with suicide attacks in public spaces having become an almost daily occurrence in Iraq. A bomber struck a falafel shop near the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Baghdad last week, and when told of the bungled training demonstration by the New York Times, Raad Hashim, who works at a liquor store near the site of
