    How imbecilic are those Republicans trying to make a name for themselves by supporting the unconstitutional Schiff/Pelosi articles of impeachment? Beyond polite description. Susan Collins, Rob Portman, probably the self-serving Mitt Romney, are each trying to be the biggest monkey wrenches in an already ridiculous endeavor to remove President Trump from office. Each of them should just admit they are Democrats at heart and switch parties. How else to explain their betrayal of their own party? Poor judgment is one thing, like Matt Gaetz voting for Pelosi's meaningless resolution to limit Trump's ability to counteract Iran. That was just dumb,...

    Market doomsayer Marc "Dr. Doom" Faber has launched a racially charged diatribe in his latest newsletter, alleging that the U.S. is great primarily because it is ruled by white people. The eccentric Gloom, Boom & Doom report author, who often speaks on CNBC and other financial media, generally forecasting some type of market downturn, focused his latest comments on the racial conflicts happening around the country. (A CNBC spokesperson said it will not book him in the future.) "And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look...
  • Chelsea Clinton Criticizes Trump for Invoking Her Dad’s Past, Juanita Broaddrick Responds

    Chelsea Clinton weighed in on Donald Trump invoking her father’s “transgressions” this week, and Juanita Broaddrick responded by sending her a message on Twitter. Trump boasted after the debate that he could have gone there on Bill Clinton, but didn’t want to with his daughter in the room. Well, she responded to that in an interview with Cosmopolitan after the debate. Clinton said, “It’s a distraction from his inability to talk about what’s actually at stake in this election and to offer concrete, comprehensive proposals about the economy, or our public school system, or debt-free college, or keeping our country...

    COOS BAY — An attempt to distill the active ingredient from marijuana caused a refrigerator-demolishing explosion at a home on Monday, fire investigators in Coos County have concluded. The Charleston Fire Department got a report at about 1:05 p.m. of a loud explosion on Jerome Road, Coos County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Pat Downing wrote in a news release. Fire crews found that a refrigerator at the home had exploded, shattering a window, dislodging cupboard doors and drawers, and scattering food around the kitchen. Firefighters called for the help of the sheriff's department and the state fire marshal's office to figure...

    There was something different in the air today at the 20th annual Boston Freedom Rally at the Boston Common. And it wasn’t just the clouds of pungent marijuana smoke. It was the first time the rally organized by the Massachusetts Cannabis Reform Coalition had been held since voters passed Proposition 2 last November, which decriminalized possession of small amounts of marijuana. The changed law gave attendees reason to celebrate and a better chance of not getting arrested -- a scenario organizers say is a welcome change for the event, which has caused controversy over the years, including many arrests and...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – US president-elect Barack Obama Saturday unveiled a broad proposal to boost job growth and the troubled American economy, a top priority for the incoming administration. "Economists from across the political spectrum agree that if we don't act swiftly and boldly, we could see a much deeper economic downturn that could lead to double digit unemployment and the American Dream slipping further and further out of reach," Obama said in his weekly radio address "That's why we need an American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan that not only creates jobs in the short-term but spurs economic growth and competitiveness...

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass. --A former Holyoke police officer has been sentenced to 12 to 15 years in prison for shooting her estranged wife's boyfriend. Tammy Walker pleaded guilty to numerous charges, including armed assault in a dwelling. Her attorney had requested a two to three year prison sentence. Walker was a former sergeant who'd been fired before the shooting after numerous problems on the job. Prosecutors said in December 2006, she took a gun and 43 rounds of ammunition into the Chicopee home of 52-year-old Rochester Johnson, who was seeing Walker's estranged wife, Kathleen Donoghue. The gun went off in a...

    Chinese doctors report the world's tallest woman is walking again after spending a month in the hospital to treat complications of her gigantism. Yao Defen, who is just over 7 1/2 feet tall, has a number of medical problems resulting from a benign tumor on her pituitary gland that makes it secrete excessive amounts of growth hormone, the Shanghai Daily said Friday. Yao, 36, gained most of her height during childhood, and while her body still produces excess hormone, doctors think she won't continue to grow. "She has shown good responses to medicines we used on her tumor, which is...

    Woman 'miraculously' grows a penis July 14 2005 at 12:42PM Hlaing Thar Yar, Myanmar - Chicken-seller Thin Sandarin had always dreamt of being a man. When she inexplicably grew a penis last month, the 21-year-old treated it as an awe-inspiring omen - as have the thousands of stunned villagers who have travelled to a pagoda to see him. "On the morning of the full moon day of June 21, I noticed my thing (sex organ) was not the same as before," Thin Sandar, who now goes by the male name Than Sein, said on Wednesday. "And my breasts disappeared," Than...

    Washington -- Hundreds of suit-and-tie-clad marijuana advocates feasted on chicken Kiev and Petite Sirah on Capitol Hill on Wednesday night in what may have been the most button-down gathering of pot enthusiasts in history. The music was contemporary jazz, not reggae. The dessert was a caramel parfait with chocolate drizzle, not Oreos. And the featured Cheech and Chong video was a snippet of a documentary on actor Tommy Chong's recent imprisonment. The event, a strictly nonsmoking affair that drew members of Congress, a prominent television talk show host, and seasoned Washington operatives, was a mainstream coming-out of sorts for the...
