    Morton's The Steakhouse, a high-end restaurant chain, is responding after a firestorm of complaints on social media about how it treated a cancer patient dining at its Nashville location over the weekend. A man undergoing chemotherapy treatments says he was asked to take off his hat because it violated the restaurant's dress code. Robert Chambers says he put on a beanie to keep him warm --combating the side effects of his chemotherapy treatments. Chambers says a waitress then told him to take off the hat because it was against dress code. After explaining that Chambers had cancer, a manager came...

  • Barack Obama makes Falklands gaffe by calling Malvinas the Maldives (Dumb and Dumberer)

    UK Telegraph ^ | 4-16-12 | Jonathan Gilber
    Barack Obama made an uncharacteristic error, more akin to those of his predecessor George W Bush, by referring to the Falkland Islands as the Maldives. President Obama erred during a speech at the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia, when attempting to call the disputed archipelago by its Spanish name. Instead of saying Malvinas, however, Mr Obama referred to the islands as the Maldives, a group of 26 atolls off that lie off the South coast of India.

    Washington- The Capitol was briefly evacuated this morning when a fire alarm pull station was activated on the senate floor after an argument amongst the South Carolina delegation. Senator Lindsey Graham (REPUBLICAN) was later arrested by Capitol Police in a bed room at John McCain's (REPUBLICAN) nearby town home and charged with the false alarm. Unnamed sources present on the floor at the time say Senators Graham (REPUBLICAN) and Jim DeMint (REPUBLICAN) were having a heated discussion over Graham's recent vote in favor of Elaine Kagan’s successful nomination to the United States Supreme Court, as well as his general squishiness....

    CPS to close at least 20 schoolsProduced by Linda Lutton on Monday, December 22, 2008 The Chicago Public School district is planning on shutting down at least 20 schools. A group of Chicago teachers is calling for a moratorium on school closings. School closings have become an annual ritual in Chicago. District spokesman David Pickens: PICKENS: In schools that are performing poorly, we feel we have an obligation to do something dramatic to turn those schools around. Last week, president elect Barack Obama praised schools chief Arne Duncan for his willingness to close struggling schools and start new ones in...
  • Editorial: Don't throw away your vote by going with McCain or Obama

    I have many Republican friends who are disgusted that I'm voting third party this election year. They believe stopping Barack Obama from becoming president outweighs all else. Meanwhile, I have many Democrat friends who are equally disgusted; for them, seeing John McCain defeated is more important than who wins. They are all wasting their votes. Imagine a reckless teenager who constantly runs up his parents' credit cards, smashes the family car every Friday night, is failing in school, and has serious drinking and drug problems. Now imagine that no matter how reckless and dangerous that teenager became, his parents believed...

    Huckabee: Bhutto assassination 'changes the world' by John Chase DES MOINES -- The day after Benazir Bhutto’s assassination, Republican Mike Huckabee said Friday that the killing “changes the world” by adding a new level or turmoil to the Middle East and raises concerns about terrorist attacks on America. “The assassination of Bhutto I think creates not only new heightened tensions there but it reminds us just how delicate that situation is,” the former Arkansas governor said during an interview Friday morning on KCCI-TV. “If you think about Pakistan, that’s where if we have another terrorist attack, it’s going to be...

    The doormat to the Loomis home on James Drive reads "Come Back With a Search Warrant." Placer County sheriff's detectives did just that Wednesday as they arrested four men and recovered a 3,000-pound ATM that had been stolen from Cal Expo hours before. Sgt. Brian Whigam said the culprits took the machine to the Loomis home and used a sledgehammer, a pry bar and an acetylene torch to get the machine open -- all to no avail. "There was a large amount of cash inside, but they never got any of it," he said.

You may be less familiar with Loaded Weapon, which is the name of a new sneaker being hawked by Converse.

Unfortunately, Jews will fool Americans forever." During 40 years, there have been warnings that Jewish oppression of Palestinians, with American help, is unacceptable. Each warning has been bloodier than the others. The Jews, master salesmen that they are, have been able to persuade Americans that it is in American interests to support Israeli oppression of Palestinians. As a result, the clueless Americans, with no end in sight, are now paying a billion...
