    Obamacare has forced the health care cancellation of the stars of the television show “Little People, Big World” according family patriarch and Oregon businessman Matt Roloff. From Matt’s official Facebook page: “Today I got the dreaded letter in the mail telling us our company Health care plan is being eliminated. (Up to this point ..I thought it was just scare tactics) We’ve been paying our own Health Care for many, many years due to pre-existing conditions etc etc. Now they are forcing my provider to cancel me?? How is this reform? I thought it was suppose to help those that...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In the famous White House kitchen garden, tomatoes are rotting on the vine. Herbs have gone to seed. And the sweet potatoes - a favorite of President Barack Obama - have become worm food. It's another impact of the government shutdown, one that only the fox and the many squirrels that live on the White House grounds could love. A foodie blog called Obamafoodarama that obsessively covers the White House "food ephemera" and the administration's food policy has posted photos of the normally immaculate garden looking more like what most gardeners' plots appear at this time of...

    In a suit filed in federal court in New York, former president Jimmy Carter, along with his publisher, Simon & Schuster, is being sued by five readers of his 2006 book, "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid." The suit alleges that the defendants violated New York's consumer protection laws by committing "deceptive acts in the conduct of business, trade, or commerce." The plaintiffs, who hope to be considered a class, were "members of the reading public who thought they could trust a former president of the United States and a well-established book publisher to tell the truth..." Does Carter deserve this trouble?...

    Las Vegas will essentially be closed to general aviation pilots trying to fly into the area for parts of July 8 and 9. A 19-hour presidential temporary flight restriction will shut down all three major GA airports in the area: McCarran International, Henderson Executive, and North Las Vegas. AOPA President Craig Fuller has reached out to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano once again to reiterate the negative economic impact these TFRs have on the local economies and the need for GA to be represented in the TFR planning process. Reminding Napolitano of the negative economic and public...

    GALLUP, N.M. -- Gallup police reported a bizarre set of circumstances following a recent emergency call to the home of Roman Catholic Bishop Donald Pelotte. The most recent event happened Thursday when Gallup police reported receiving an emergency call from Pelotte, 62. An incident report from the McKinley Metropolitan Dispatch Authority reported that Pelotte told operators "...gentle little people, about 3 to 4 feet tall, and wearing Halloween masks" were in the hall. The dispatch log reported that Pelotte said he hid in a closet while the people were in his home. The report said Pelotte offered conflicting information about...

    Everyone knows about New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine's decision to speed down a state highway sans seatbelt and the price he paid for flouting the laws he was charged with enforcing. Corzine was at least repentant, acknowledging the error of his ways. Sen. Carole MigdenNow meet California state Sen. Carole Migden, D-San Francisco. Last month, after she was chewed out for colliding with another motorist between her district and Sacramento, she declared: "You can't talk to me like that. I'm a senator." When the news first leaked out, Migden explained she'd been momentarily distracted while reaching for a cell phone....

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein and her mega-millionaire husband, Richard Blum, are pulling up stakes on their quiet Presidio Terrace home and moving uptown to a Pacific Heights mansion -- with views to die for. The $16.5 million mansion -- which sits at the foot of Vallejo Street, between the Presidio and some of the city's most hoity-toity addresses -- offers a sweeping view of the bay. It's right off what Herb Caen christened the "Gold Rush" -- the final two blocks of upper, upper Broadway, where the residents include Ann and Gordon Getty, Oracle founder Larry Ellison, and Mimi Haas...

    Special to Free Republic ^ | 17 July 2004 | John Armor (Congressman Billybob)
    Okay, now that the Democrats have a presumptive ticket, it’s time to assess them as a pair. This is one of the few instances when the whole is less than the sum of its parts. That’s especially true when the theme the pair apparently wants to advance is “truth.” Several months ago I wrote in detail about three would-be Democratic candidates, two that I knew personally and one by reputation. They were Joe Lieberman, John Kerry and John Edwards. (Yep, it was back when Lieberman was still a faint possibility, and Kerry was a third-place candidate.) Here’s the short version...
