    22 November 1963. 51 years ago. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing that day? I was in phys ed class and had just finished running the cross country course. As I walked up the locker room door, Coach Waite was sitting on the steps with his face in his hands. He was crying. I asked what was wrong and he told me that President Kennedy had been shot and killed. That was a bad day for me.

    This Season, the Engineers Are Going to Playoffs, but They Once Competed in Hand-Me-Downs CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—In the 1970s, on this campus known for scientific innovation, Massachusetts Institute of Technology students engineered a rather unlikely experiment: a football team. MIT had no intercollegiate football squad at the time. The student body in 1901 voted 119-117 to discontinue it. So one day in 1978, a group of MIT students huddled and created a team that would play its first game that fall. No one else at the school had any clue. There were times when fielding a football team at MIT seemed...

    Maybe the best way to fight the Obama power grab is to show how it opens up the floodgates. So maybe all the GOP candidates should now start talking about what executive orders they would impose. After all, if we establish the precedent that the POTUS can flout the will of Congress by using EO's, then we would naturally start expecting presidents to use that to pursue their agenda, and we would want to know in advance for which issues they would likely consider using that new found power. So let's put that out there! If this precedent gets established,...

    We already know that the NSA bugged the phones of Angela Merkel and listened in to her conversations. However, what if the reverse were true: that the Russians did the same to Barack Obama. They sure have the technical expertise to do this. And if they tapped the phone of The One that means they tapped the phone of the one who gives the orders to The One, namely Valerie Jarret. In addition to phone tapping I am also wondering if actual conversations in the Oval office and other White House offices were bugged. No President since Nixon stupidly recorded...

    Everyone's talking about what Congress might be able to do to fight Obama's recent executive order, but I was wondering whether any of the Red states could do something at the state level. For example, Hawaii's used to have a residency requirement for anyone who wanted to work in that state, which got thrown out because it put an unconstitutional restraint on the right of citizens to freely travel between the states. But such protection is not afforded to non-citizens. So how about a residency requirement that said only those who were qualified to work in the country - under...

    The Planned Parenthood abortion business has frequently employed a clergy council to attempt to justify abortion to Christians and the religious community. In June, LifeNews exposed how the abortion giant issued a pastoral letter claiming the Bible justifies abortions. Planned Parenthood issued a “pastoral letter” through one of its political lobbying arms—the Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board—saying that “many people wrongly assume that all religious leaders disapprove of abortion,” that “abortion is not even mentioned in the Scriptures,” that “there are clergy…from all religions who support women making this complex decision,” and that Planned Parenthood “will refer you to someone...

    House Republicans filed a long-threatened lawsuit Friday against the Obama administration over unilateral actions on the health care law that they say are abuses of the president's executive authority. The lawsuit — filed against the secretaries of the Health and Human Services and Treasury Departments — focuses on two crucial aspects of the way the administration has put the Affordable Care Act into effect. The suit accuses the Obama administration of unlawfully postponing a requirement that larger employers offer health coverage to their full-time employees or pay penalties. (Larger companies are defined as those with 50 or more employees.) The...

    SAN DIEGO — PRESIDENT OBAMA’S executive order eliminating the threat of deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants is good policy. It is the right thing to do. But it is a dangerous move for the Democratic Party. Yes, immigration is an important issue for most Latinos and Asian-Americans. And yes, 63 percent of Latinos and 66 percent of Asian- Americans voted for Democratic candidates for Congress in the midterms. The executive order could solidify and expand that support for years to come. But Latinos and Asian-Americans made up only 11 percent of the electorate. Even if immigration were the only...

    My favorite heartwarming Thanksgiving story involves a 24-pound frozen turkey that a strange woman hid between her thighs. We never knew her name. But what does a name matter? They'd fill carts with turkeys and sweet potatoes and so on, then stand in great lines that snaked from the front to the back wall. And we kids bagged, making tight corners, hardly ever looking up, the only thing we knew was that the groceries would never stop coming down that conveyor. But then I heard Aunt Fannie say in her accented English, "Miss? Where's the turkey?" A rather large woman,...

For now, invited users can voluntarily donate $1 to $3 to view ad-free versions of  websites that include Mashable, The Onion, and ScienceDaily. Given that Google’s business model is almost entirely based on ad revenue, some in the tech press were surprised that the search giant would even touch such an idea. I have a different theory, based on my experience talking to Google execs over the last few years: Contributor is an elaborate experiment to prove that the...

    ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) -- Sponsors of the annual holiday festival near Roseburg have commissioned a whopper of a centerpiece - a wooden nutcracker intended to stand 41 feet tall, weigh more than 16,000 pounds and work its jaw with enough force to crush coconuts. The statue was created by a Willamette Valley woodworker using chain saws, The News-Review (http://bit.ly/1AoMDx3 ) reported. The crushing power comes from a quarter-horsepower engine that opens and closes a statue jaw about six times a minute. Cranes were deployed this week to assemble the statue at River Forks Park for the Umpqua Valley Festival of...

The criminal complaint indicates that Jenna Schumacher brought her son to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin on November 5th. The child was admitted for chronic ear bleeding and perforated eardrums. Doctors indicated there was “no medical cause” for the ear injuries — and because of that, they were concerned this may be an abuse situation.

    Margaret Atwood is a prodigious storyteller. Since publishing The Edible Woman over four decades ago, the prize-winning Canadian author has received widespread acclaim. But while some of her books have been best-sellers, the truth is that you don’t need to buy one of them to see Atwood spin a fictional yarn. Instead, just watch her recent interview with PBS’ Charlie Rose. In 1985, Atwood came out with The Handmaiden’s Tale, the story of a dystopian future where women live as second class citizens. When Rose asked her why the book remains popular, Atwood said it was due in part to...

While I totally agree about his point of the unfairness of EO amnesty, I thought his example of someone trying to follow the law was rather odd, and very atypical of the average person waiting in line.

Retired General John Allen, coordinator of the coalition against IS in Iraq and Syria, told Turkey's Milliyet newspaper an estimated 600 IS fighters had already been killed in air strikes and the group would ultimately be defeated in the battle for the town. "ISIL has in so many ways impaled itself on Kobane," said Allen, using a variant of the name for IS....
