http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Congress returns to work today with only a twenty-three percent job approval rating in the polls. They couldn't be happier. According to their contract, the moment their approval rating goes below twenty percent they qualify for hazard pay.


The New York Mercantile Exchange reported Friday that oil prices hit seventy-five dollars a barrel. It's insane in Los Angeles. Some gasoline stations in Beverly Hills and Malibu were charging four dollars a gallon, but that was for self-centered.


President Hu Jintao assured students at Yale Friday that China is not a threat to the U.S. economy. China's not the problem. Karl Rove was relieved of his duties as White House policy advisor Wednesday and replaced by a customer service operator in India.


Karl Rove gave up his White House policy job Wednesday to concentrate on politics. He didn't go willingly. When he was told that his job was to get Republicans re-elected to Congress in November, he asked if he could take another crack at the Middle East.


Tampa settled a suit with a city worker fired over a Rebel flag decal on his truck. The settlement was amicable. They let him keep the Confederate flag on his truck after a representative for illegal immigrants said they weren't offended by it.


Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean called Wednesday for tighter U.S. border controls and more border police. He's no enemy of the American melting pot. His own state of Vermont was settled by people from all four corners of Nottinghamshire.


The Democratic Party fielded offers Thursday from ten states that want their primaries ahead of New Hampshire and Iowa. It could revive Howard Dean's career. He doesn't stand out so much when everybody in Iowa and New Hampshire is screaming.


Chinese President Hu Jintao was heckled in the Rose Garden for three minutes by a woman who had obtained press credentials. It was quite a standoff. Andrea Mitchell will not be ignored just because her husband stepped down as Fed Chairman.


China's President Hu Jintao fielded many questions about China during his West Coast swing. They have a four-thousand-mile- long wall to keep out the Mongols. This explains why Mongolia's most successful pole vaulters are always on China's team.


The FDA released a statement Thursday saying medical marijuana is essentially worthless. They said there have been no sound scientific studies showing benefits. There are benefits, it's just that researchers are too listless to write the report.


The Lundberg Survey reported that gasoline prices went above three dollars per gallon in California Thursday. That explains why everybody has been driving drunk in Los Angeles. When the judge takes away your driver's license it's like money in the bank.


Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman said Thursday he will not run for the U.S. Senate in Nevada and will instead remain mayor. The Democrat prefers Las Vegas to Washington D.C. He prefers to stay in a city where trading cash for favors is still technically a crime.


American Airlines gave away free airline tickets to all Dallas Mavericks fans in attendance at their final home game Monday. The fans were overjoyed when they realized they were holding airline tickets. When they first saw the AA logo on the envelope they thought they were going to have to answer twenty questions about their drinking.
