    Our government is out of control. First, it was the World War II veterans who had to break down barriers to see the open air, un-attended memorial erected in their honor. ... But now there’s a story just coming to light that takes things even further. According the Archdiocese for Military Services, GS and contract priests (who are paid by the federal government as independent contractors in places where there aren’t enough active-duty priests to meet the needs of Catholics in military service) are being forbidden from celebrating Mass, even on a volunteer basis. If they violate this restriction, they...

  • Temper tantrum wife is ‘good Christian girl’ who was ‘betrayed’ by husband, slams mom

    Beverly Jones says her 30-year-old daughter, Whitney Mongiat, wasn't correctly portrayed in the YouTube video that shows her kicking and screaming for not getting her way. Mother says daughter was blindsided by soon-to-be ex-husband. "She is very upset. How do you think she feels with people looking at her?" her mother said. Her husband, Jim Mongiat, uploaded the shocking video to YouTube earlier this month before it was taken down by administers who said it contained content designed to "harass, bully, or threaten." He claims they have it the other way around, with him having been the one victimized by...

    Mayor Michael Bloomberg cursed out the chief executive officer of a taxi company who won a court case against the city and pledged a post-mayoral revenge against the entire industry, the CEO and one witness said. “[I will] destroy your [expletive] industry,” Mr. Bloomberg said to Taxi Club Management CEO Gene Freidman, The New York Post reported. He made the comments during last Thursday’s game at Madison Square Garden during an impromptu meet at the 1879 Club, a witness told The Post. Mr. Friedman subsequently confirmed the exchange to The Post and added that Mr. Bloomberg also said that come...

    I wonder why President Obama feels he has the right to be outraged when legislators don't automatically roll over to his policy demands. I suspect that his moral indignation is more about personally losing than it is about policy issues themselves. For indeed, President Obama was obviously furious when his gun control bill failed to muster sufficient votes to pass the Senate. Politico reported, "More than anything, it was an emotional blow to Obama, who was as irritated at the four members of his own party as he was at the 90 percent of Republicans who defeated the bill." Politico...

    When it comes to family members of Republican presidential candidates, looks like the MSM has decided they're fair game for attacks. Yesterday we noted how ABC's Bianna Golodryga claimed that Paul Ryan's mother was campaigning in a "very calculated" manner. Today we offer Joan Walsh into evidence. Appearing on the weekend edition of MSNBC's "Hardball," the Salon editor accused Ann Romney of throwing a "tantrum" over her husband's decision to release no more than two years of tax returns.

    Is a 2-year-old girl really a flight risk? Of course not, unless she's having a temper tantrum. Colette Vieau and her family were heading home from vacation, when their toddler had a code red melt-down after boarding the plane. Refusing to stay seated and buckled up, and possibly agitating her 3-year-old sister, Vieau's youngest daughter, Natalie, became public enemy number one as the plane crew waited for take off. "We were holding them down with all of our might, seat belt on. And I said, 'We have them seated. Can we go now?" Colette, a pediatrician, told Rhode Island's NBC...

It all starts with a rally in Liberty Square starting at 7 a.m. to “put an end to Wall Street’s reign of terror.” They plan on gathering at 16 subways stations around New York City to take their message to the trains. Finally, they say tens of thousands of protesters will end the day in Foley Square followed by a march to the Brooklyn...

The rating for Italy, which has Europe’s second-largest debt load, was lowered from A+, S&P said in a statement. The agency said Italythe country's net general government debt is the highest among A-rated sovereigns, and now expects it to peak later and at a higher level than it previously anticipated. “In our...

    Since getting wiped out in the 2010 election and failing in their massively-financed recall elections, Wisconsin’s Democrats have embarked on a permanent temper tantrum. Like little children, they apparently intend to stamp their feet and hold their breath until they get their way. Most recently, they infiltrated and disrupted a Rotary meeting at which Paul Ryan was speaking. More than forty policemen were needed to keep the unruly Democrats under control; they escorted twenty from the Rotary meeting and arrested three: It is hard to imagine Wisconsin voters returning these goofs to power any time soon.

    In an eye-poppingly nasty and derranged press conference, Obama ordered Boehner and McConnell to appear before His Majesty tomorrow morning (7/23) at 1100 (that's 11:00, military time). The conference was called by The One to express his displeasure with the Repubs because they refuse to accept almost $2 trillion in new spending in order for the debt ceiling to be raised "until 2013" so Obama doesn't have to deal with that issue as he runs for reelection.

    Washington (CNN) - Mitt Romney has a message to Tea Party candidates nationwide: If you lose your Republican primary bids, stay on the sidelines. The former Massachusetts governor on Monday warned the grassroots movement not to mount third party efforts in general elections, which he said would siphon votes from Republican nominees. "If there is a conservative candidate that runs in the general election, then obviously, divide and fail is the result," Romney said in an interview with the conservative Web site Newsmax. "Hopefully Tea Party candidates will run in respective primaries and they will either win or lose. And...

    This is the best minor-league managerial ejection since Phil Wellman went off three years ago. Yet, what Gary Robinson of the State College (Pa.) Spikes did Friday night might be better, if only because it's not quite as psychotic. Combining the temper of Earl Weaver with the showmanship of Ocho Cinco, Robinson put on a unique tantrum for fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates' Class A affiliate in the New York-Penn League. Thankfully, we have video. At first, the disagreement between Robinson and umpire Roberto Ortiz looked like any other: Some arguing, followed by nothing. But not 5 seconds after he...

    Not sure what to do when your tantrum-throwing child embarrasses you at the department store? Well, an expert has offered some advice to parents on how to react in such situations. Chuck Smith, a Kansas State University child development expert, said that when children act out in public, parents don’t always know how best to respond. He said that the proper way to react depends on a number of factors including the child’s age, the purpose of the public outing and whether the child’s behaviour even needs to be corrected. Smith said that the golden rule for parents is to...

    I spent the better part of an hour earlier today scanning the various sites and blogs to try and understand what specifically the Fox-Pajamas tea parties are about. Having absorbed about as much of the literature as I can, I have to say I'm still befuddled. Option 1: It's a protest of the bank bailouts orchestrated by Bush and now Obama. But surely these tea-partiers understand what would happen if we didn't bail the banks out. Are they advocating letting major banks fail? Or are they advocating a Krugman-style government take-over? No idea. Option 2: It's a protest against tax...

    House Republicans early this morning invoked a parliamentary procedure in an unsuccessful attempt to kill the often-derided if little-known National Drug Intelligence Center, a small federal agency created to coordinate the drug war as well as a pet project of one of their chief nemeses, Democrat John Murtha of Pennsylvania. Murtha has led his party's efforts to impose troop withdrawal deadlines in Iraq. The center, loathed by the Drug Enforcement Administration, nearly died on the drawing board--and by many accounts, it should have. But Murtha, chair of a powerful appropriations subcommittee, resuscitated the center and planted it in his own...

After all, if the war is shown to be a mistake, why keep fighting it? That's the view of the Democratic Party's anti-war base.

Miers had been leading the White House effort to help Bush choose nominees to the Supreme Court. Unlike recent Democrat presidential nominees Al Gore and John Kerry who declared they would never nominate a pro-life Supreme Court justice, Bush has repeatedly indicated that he has no litmus test for his judicial nominees on abortion clearly implying a willingness to select judicial nominees who support the arguably...

    I generally like the Republicans that Sean Hannity has on his show, but George Will really got on my nerves when he defended keeping the ability to filibuster judges based solely on partisan politics. His first statement that got me going was to the effect of, "Sean, we don't want to place limits on what requires a supremajority in the Senate. You would have it that anything not allowed by the Constitution is forbidden. Such limits are antithetical to a free society". HELLO?!!! Mr. Will, please READ the Constitution before you ever dare to utter another idiotic statement like this....

    Nilotpal Basu, chairman of the standing committee on civil aviations, has ruled out the possibility of any kind of probe into the deal between Air-India and the Boeing company on the purchase of 50 aircraft by the official airlines. Speaking to rediff.com on Thursday, Basu said that the talk of a probe by CVC into the deal is absurd. "I think the issue raised by the Airbus is totally unwarranted. If at all there has to be a probe on whether there is any issue of irregularities or Air-India not getting the best price, then it would be done by...

    WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (AP) - Police arrested an 8-year-old boy who allegedly had a violent outburst in school, head-butting his teacher and kicking an assistant principal, when he was told he couldn't go outside to play with other students. The 4-foot pupil was led away from Rawls Byrd Elementary School in handcuffs Tuesday and charged with disorderly conduct and assault and battery. "It's not something that happens every day," Maj. Stan Stout said of what could be the department's youngest arrest ever. Stout said the chair-tossing, desk-turning outburst occurred after a teacher, and later the assistant principal, attempted to stop the...

    No Name Calling Week?     1/12/2005By Warren Throckmorton, Ph.D.Yes, name-calling is wrong. But this event’s sponsors reveal the agenda behind banning it. “There is a special place in hell for people like you!” These words were directed at me by a teacher during this past summer’s National Education Association (NEA) convention in Washington, D.C. This delegate to the NEA convention made his prediction in response to my presence at the NEA’s Ex-Gay Educators’ Caucus booth in the convention exhibit hall. His cheery salutation caught me off-guard given the message of tolerance and acceptance I had been hearing around the exhibit hall....

    (excerpt of article copied from hard copy edition of FT) - SNIP - These testimonies to irrelevance recalled themselves on the eve of this week’s Nato summit in Istanbul. As we gazed sout-east over the Bosphorus in the direction of Iraq, one of those charged with drafting the leader’s communiqué remarked that the outcome had been another bad-temepered compromise. Nato ambassadors had sweated long and hard to gloss over their differences. But, though thickly applied, the gloss was patchy. The ambiguities of the text, this official said, had left room for the obligatory public spat between France and the US....

    LONDON (Reuters) - An Iranian refugee has sewn his eyes, ears and mouth shut in protest at the rejection of his asylum application, a friend says. The move by Shahin Portofeh, 23, comes less than two months after another Iranian refugee, Abas Amini, won the right to stay in Britain after resorting to the same extreme tactic. "I'm standing next to him right now and he is in a lot of pain," said a woman describing herself as a friend and interpreter in Portofeh's bedroom in Coventry. The interpreter, who declined to be named, said Portofeh was lying on his...

    Toddler tantrum grounds jet By James Sturcke, Evening Standard 12 March 2003 Like any two-year-old Marcello Ferrand is prone to the occasional tantrum. So when an aircraft crew tried to make him wear a seatbelt he panicked and sat under the seat - the kind of scene any parent will recognise. However, for the staff of a British Airways flight from Milan to Heathrow it demanded immediate action - which resulted in the police being called and Marcello, along with his grandparents, being hauled off the plane. The airline's ground staff then refused to let the elderly couple and Marcello,...
