The News in Zingers

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | French star Gerard Depardieu became a Russian citizen Friday to escape the West's high taxes on the rich. He left to enjoy Russia's low flat tax. Apparently the Cold War didn't end twenty-five years ago, it was just halftime and at halftime the teams switch sides and defend the opposite goalposts.

MedBox introduced a vending machine Friday that will dispense marijuana in states where pot sales are now legal. Talk about irony. There was a time when the pot came from Mexico and the Twinkies were in the vending machine, now it's the other way around.

Al Jazeera announced it will open news bureaus all over the U.S. after buying Current TV Thursday. They will also air dramas and sitcoms. The network producers are now developing Eight Simple Rules for Buying My Daughter, Mayberry IED and Really Mad Men.

President Obama signed an executive order Tuesday making it easy for illegal aliens with relatives in the U.S. to stay here. This is an entirely new policy. It would replace the current way with which we control the flow of illegal aliens from Mexico, the honor system.

The Pentagon began enforcing its new maximum weight rules for soldiers Thursday and started kicking people out of the Army for being obese. It's amazing. Back in the Sixties, you had to go to Canada to get out of the Army, now you just have to go to Taco Bell.

President Obama signed his tax increase into law by auto-pen from Hawaii Thursday, the same day the Justice Department dropped its suit against Google. Of course they did. Why would Democrats sue a high-tech company that allows them to raise taxes from Oahu?

Hillary Clinton's life as a young House staffer on the Watergate Committee will be made into a movie called Rodham. She was always bright. When Nixon announced that he had a mysterious leg ailment that kept him from testifying to Congress about his role in the White House cover-up, Hillary wrote it down like she was stealing a joke for future use.
