    Ted Cruz came in second in the recent Louisiana Republican primary behind Donald Trump but could win more delegates -- and the the real estate mogul is crying foul. Trump beat the Texas senator in the March 5 contest by 3.6%. Under party rules the pair each won 18 delegates. But Cruz's campaign is using its organization muscle to sway ten more delegates toward his camp, The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday -- a situation that seems to have caught Trump's ire.

    The intellectually bankrupt center-left finally has owned up to its disintegration six weeks before the election. Even the ultra left-wing Haaretz lamented Monday, “Game Over. The center-left bloc is a fragmented mess, while the right-wing bloc has never looked so hale and hearty.” It published a Dialog poll that apparently was a knock-out punch for the left but revealed no surprises for readers of Arutz Sheva, which has reported ever since the demise of the Olmert government that the Israeli public is moving away from the “center left” and towards the nationalist and religious camps. If elections were held today,...

    The Gallup national tracking poll now shows a very strong lead for Mitt Romney. As of Friday, he was ahead by six points among likely voters, having led by seven points on Thursday. However, the poll’s results are deeply inconsistent with the results that other polling firms are showing in the presidential race, and the Gallup poll has a history of performing very poorly when that is the case. Other national polls now show a very slight lead for President Obama on average, while state polls continue to indicate a narrow advantage for the president in tipping-point states like Ohio....

They chanted "U-S-A!" and "Yes we did!"; they waved American flags, blasted vuvuzelas, took pictures with their arms raised or wrapped around one another.

    If you believe the Democratic ideologues, their policies are perfect and so is their President. There is no way that Americans could turn against either. That is, unless you believe Rasmussen. Judged by Rasmussen America has issues with both the POTUS and his party's policies. Democrats believe that Rasmussen, who is acknowledged as one of the more accurate political pollsters, is either inaccurate or the purposely biased. They whine that Rasmussen's polls constantly report numbers that are about 5% lower than other polls,which is generally true because Rasmussen measures likely voters, other pollsters measure all adults.

    I have been a minor participant at Free Republic, the Internet’s leading conservative forum, since September 2004. An online friend referred me to a discussion where members of Free Republic were talking about the 1952 and 1956 presidential elections, and using my maps from this page to make a point. I had to join FR to introduce myself to that group, and thank them for visiting. Because that was right after the “Rathergate” scandal, I thus became one of the “Pajamahadeen” that had just brought down the Sauronic eye of CBS. Being a “Freeper” has been an interesting and fun...

That would be pretty much everybody. I'm kinda sure nobody likes Mitt Romney. And as of 11/6/08, John McCain is a favorite whipping boy. Overall, the bulk of characters who stood on stage in the early GOP debates last year is tainted in some way. Giuliani, the cross-dressing gun-hater. Ron Paul, the anti-war drug-legalizer. Huckabee, the soft-on-crime wingnut. Yada yada... I'm aligned...

    Ever since my son was a tot, I have squirreled away as much as I could muster for his college education. Education is a priority in our family, but every year that goes by, it becomes clearer that nothing I could ever amass will dent what it will cost to send him to college. Despite his desire, college may be out of the question for him — and for anybody else earning less than an auto executive's salary. The National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education reported recently that the rising cost of education has put it virtually out-of-reach...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Why doesn't the Democratic Party hold a primary among its superdelegates to reach a quick decision between Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton? That idea was proposed publicly Wednesday by Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, because he believes Democratic chances in November will be hurt if the nominee isn't decided until the party's August convention. Bredesen himself is a superdelegate and undecided in the presidential race. The national convention will have almost 800 superdelegates — elected and party officials — whose votes for a presidential nominee are not bound by the results of any primary or caucus.

    Discrimination isn't always intentionally hateful or even blatant. Staring too long at an obese person or assuming that someone doesn't belong in a certain place because they might look different is also prejudicial. To help promote acceptance and understanding, a group of people will share personal encounters with discrimination this October. In conjunction with Diversity Awareness Month in October, the York County Diversity Coalition will host a series of first-time programs for the public and held in the evenings at high schools across the county. The discussion topics include obesity, racism, judgement based on sexual orientation and disability. Each session...

Fernando is a Mexican national who has lived in the U.S. for about 15 years, and he was on his way to Christmas shop at Eastview Mall in Victor when a trooper pulled him over for a burned-out taillight. Fernando wound up sitting in a Batavia holding cell because his immigration papers weren't in order. Bail was set at $10,000. Now, he's looking at possible deportation - and leaving American-born Sadie alone to raise four young children. “It's just ridiculous. It seems...

Trudeau is shrugging it off, but Rall is considering a lawsuit.

So far, only Ted Rall, Garry Trudeau, and The New York Times have made submissions."

"He has been a lightning rod for the anger that many lesbian and gay people and other progressive Catholics have felt during the papacy of John Paul II."White smoke rose above the Sistine Chapel and bells heralded the election of a new pope on Tuesday, but the symbolism lacked joy for many LGBT Catholics once they learned the new pope is Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger of Germany.

    In March, the U.S. economy created a paltry 111,000 private sector jobs, half the expected amount. Following a well-established pattern, U.S. job growth was concentrated in domestic services: waitresses and bartenders, construction, administrative and waste services, and health care and social assistance. In the 21st century, the U.S. economy has ceased to create jobs in knowledge industries or information technology (IT). It has been a long time since any jobs were created in export and import-competitive sectors. The Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasts no change in the new pattern of U.S. payroll job growth. Outsourcing and offshore production have reduced...

    One of the biggest changes in politics in my lifetime is that the delusional is no longer marginal. It has come in from the fringe, to sit in the seat of power in the Oval Office and in Congress. For the first time in our history, ideology and theology hold a monopoly of power in Washington. Theology asserts propositions that cannot be proven true; ideologues hold stoutly to a worldview despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality. When ideology and theology couple, their offspring are not always bad but they are always blind. And there is the...
