    Having ream trouble supporting an alcoholic Friend. He's been in Hollywood business for years and literally screwed up his life. He's spent most of the last twenty years in jail for his stupid behavior. Likes to promise people a good time, dinner and drinks but, consistently leaves people hanging with the check. If he's not doing that, then he's walking into restaurants, bars and hotels, then getting busted for defrauding an inn keeper. There are drunks, lousy drunks and terrible drunks. Of course, he has to be a terrible drunk. Alters his mind and he gets verbally combative, aggressive or...

This is the ultimate example of a person never losing his dinosaur. Meaning that even as I grew in cultural awareness and respect and was put higher in the class system in some way for being this musician, I never lost my dinosaur."

    Big Business does some things that are utterly necessary in modern society. They build airplanes and cars. They run airlines, phone companies, credit card companies and banks. But there is not a person among us, including employees of big businesses, that has not withered with frustration from confronting these businesses with a problem and then receiving little or no results. Even though big businesses get the most attention, the vast majority of people in the U.S. work for small businesses. Small businesses by nature are more reactive and responsive to their customers. They are closer to the customer and more...

    Iraq is falling AGAIN! A new swarm of Taliban and insurgents are now marching onto Baghdad. They are killing at random just to show their might. How disappointing that the Iraqi armed forces cannot defend their own country after the over 15 billion American dollars spent training and defending them over the last decade. In some ways it is understandable, the Iraqis who would fight back are outnumbered in may cases. There is much desertion by Iraqi troops; losing up to 300 troops a month for the last year. Obama wants to get out and stay out of Middle East...

    An Oklahoma company has designed a bullet-resistant blanket that’s designed to protect children and teachers in the event of a school shooting. The Bodyguard Blanket, made by ProTecht, is a bulletproof 5/16-inch pad that the company says is made from the same materials used by the U.S. military. Steve Walker, a podiatrist who conceptualized the blanket, told The Oklahoman that the idea came to him after two tragedies: the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and the tornadoes in Oklahoma. He said the idea was to “stop that blunt-force trauma when that rubble is falling down on a child.” The...

But we are, in this case, because that is the precise phrase President Obama and his aides are using in their off-the-record chats with journalists.” Allen went on to point out all the places...

    You can call Ronan Farrow “Faux Blue Eyes.” The son of Mia Farrow and possibly “Ol’ Blue Eyes” Frank Sinatra wears colored contact lenses to make his eyes a brighter blue, sources confirmed to Page Six. The MSNBC host landed his show soon after Mia claimed that Sinatra, and not Woody Allen, could be Ronan’s father, sparking a debate about whether he shares the legendary singer’s piercing eyes. But Ronan was spotted fueling the speculation by wearing contacts to make his eyes appear Sinatra blue during the Time 100 Gala Tuesday at Jazz at Lincoln Center. “You could see the...

The District Administrative Court in Kiev ruled to suspend broadcasts of Russia's Rossiya 24, Channel One, RTR Planeta, and NTV-World in Ukraine pending hearings on a permanent ban. "Undoubtedly, this should be viewed only as an infringement on democratic freedoms and as a violation of Ukraine's international obligations.

    So we have reached the aporia of the Right’s main argument against President Obama, wherein their arguments are deconstructing themselves via their own rhetoric undermining their claims. Republicans call the President a dictator and say his boot is on their necks, he is stomping on the Constitution, he is an “imperial” president. And yet all of them remain free to say these things in public, on TV. There isn’t even any backlash to speak of. Leading this charge is the still bitter Sarah Palin, whose behavior post 2008 loss makes John McCain’s look magnanimous and mature. Palin posited that after...

Weather.com says it will feel like -17 degrees during the heart of the game. In weather like that, the beer in the stands can freeze before it's consumed. In weather like that, your hands go numb, your chest tightens, and just breathing the air can cause a burning sensation. It's just not weather designed for human beings.

Timing in statecraft is very important, but it is something the president seems to lack. What has kept Obama from catastrophe is the unexpected success of everything he discounts, from the tactical skill of the US military to the resilience of all sectors he considers back numbers. He proceeds instead from a kind of fixed idea. President Obama’s policies have from the beginning been dogged by a curious kind of obsolescence, as...

    On the conservative side of the political spectrum, we frequently refer to liberals as "low information voters," a nice way of saying they are stupid. From their point of view, however, we are the stupid ones. And not merely stupid, but evil. The divide between conservatives and liberals can be seen in the outcomes of the many polls and surveys that are announced on a daily basis. The numbers are depressingly the same; ranging from 40-40% or 50-50%, depending on how many respond that they don't have an opinion. There is, moreover, what I call the "thirty percent syndrome" of...

    Experiments show that poverty saps people's brainpower and may lower IQ by 13 points, scientists said Thursday. The findings in the US journal Science suggest that being poor can drain a person's mental resources, leaving him or her less capable of focusing on other things, like solving problems and controlling impulses. Rather than blaming poverty on the individual or the environment, the study suggests that the state of being poor exerts the same effect as losing a full night's sleep or having lower intelligence. Researchers sampled some 400 people with incomes ranging from $20,000 to $70,000 at a shopping mall...

    In his latest book, Collision 2012, Dan Balz, a Washington Post writer, expresses his incredulity over “the inability” of Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign to “humanize” its candidate. This is one reason why, in Balz’s estimation, Romney lost the 2012 election to Barack Obama. Yet there are two other reasons that he supplies to account for Romney’s defeat. The one pertains to the “technically superior” character of his rival’s campaign. The other is in regard to Romney’s “ambivalence” concerning his bid for the presidency. The first thing that should be noted is that if Romney’s consultants had difficulty in “humanizing” their...

As anyone can easily discover with a simple search of “Zimmerman caused,” hundreds of Twitter users find it suspect that the former defendant just happened upon an “accident” and saved the day. Almost as quickly as the original conspiracy theories began to swirl, conservatives on Twitter hijacked the narrative, using the hashtag #MSNBCTonight to predict how that network will further the “Zimmerman caused” story...

    Liberals truly are fonts of sophistication and erudition. We know this because liberals tell us, and liberals are smart. They would never mangle words as does Dubya Bush or misspell “potato” like hapless Dan Quayle. But there are some things they would do, and what follows is a sampling. [...] Dog Food Afternoon But perhaps KTVU had graduated from the Patsy Schroeder School of Comedy. During a 1990s budget battle, the Democrats said that if the GOP got its way, the elderly would have to eat dog food to afford medicine. Radio host Rush Limbaugh then spoofed this demagoguery in...

    Exclusive: Ted Nugent blasts 'Fedzilla' for enabling populace to remain 'lazy and dumb' Now that the American Medical Association (AMA) has wrongfully labeled obesity as a disease, the AMA may as well categorize as such our most troubling, chronic, widespread and debilitating self-inflicted ailment of choice: stupidity. What once was one of America’s most respected medical institutions, the AMA has been afflicted with the stupid disease and has torpedoed its reputation with a single decision. Don’t be surprised if next week the AMA recommends we drink eight ounces of warm hotdog water each day to improve our health. Smart Americans...

The poll found that overall, only 24 percent of voters approve of the job congressional Republicans are doing, compared with 67 percent who disapprove. That's down from a 25-68 approval split in May.

    DETROIT (WJBK) - An FBI agent almost shot a Detroit cop on Wednesday at a gas station while filling up. It wasn't the agent or the cop's fault. It was the cop's bosses, who came up with the lame brain idea to simulate a purse snatching and then invite a TV crew to film your reaction Detroit. The immediate supervisor of these cops had no idea this was happening until they called him. "The event takes place. The officer takes the purse, runs around the gas station. As he's running, an off-duty FBI agent is pumping gas. He witnesses the...

And now that Roman is running for vice-president of the county party, he's feeling the backlash... Roman voted for and contributed to Barack Obama in 2008, that he became a Republican less than two years ago and that he "DID NOT VOTE in the 2012 general election!"

    BEIRUT, Lebanon, April 24 (UPI) -- Syria's top rebel commander is reportedly seeking Western support for taking over oil fields held by Islamist factions but the real conflict over Syria's energy resources is likely to be vast natural gas fields under the eastern Mediterranean. Whatever is under the seabed in Syrian waters remains undiscovered but in the wake of major strikes by Israel and Cyprus, and Lebanon supposedly sitting on similar prizes, it's a pretty good bet Syria has significant gas holdings. There seems little doubt that Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime will eventually be displaced as rebel forces, disunited...
