And now for the important news ....

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Hank Williams Jr. said Monday that Barack Obama playing golf with John Boehner is like Hitler playing with Netanyahu. ESPN had to cut his pre-game song. The fire marshal doesn't allow country music singers to do Hitler jokes without a trained comedian on the set.
Citibank began charging customers who have a checking account balance less than six thousand dollars a fee of fifteen dollars a month Monday. Customers are in a real bind. If they have less than six thousand dollars in their account they get hit by banking fees and if they have more than six thousand dollars in their account Obama thinks they're rich.
Amanda Knox's murder rap in Italy was overturned Monday in a haplessly bungled case. In his closing statement the Italian prosecutor called the beautiful U.S. college girl a sex maniac. That's no way to get twelve Italian men to send a hot-looking chick to prison.
The Playboy Club premiered on NBC about Chicago's Playboy Club back in the Sixties, but the network canceled the drama after just two weeks. That's as long as a bunny can hold your attention. At a certain point you've got to wake up in the morning and talk to her.
Occupy Wall Street protesters listed their demands on Tuesday. They want all debts forgiven, a living wage for all, free health care and open U.S. borders. Leftists think that money grows on trees but they won't let you touch it in case a spotted owl is living there.
President Obama sent three free trade treaties to Congress Monday, establishing free trade with Panama, Colombia, and South Korea. A new law will include help for people who are displaced by free trade. Starbucks employees face a bleak future once cocaine is tariff-free.
President Obama asked Congress to make it easier for debt collectors to call people on their cell phones to collect delinquent student loans. That's awful. How would he feel if China kept calling him in the middle of his backswing to ask why he hasn't paid them back?
Texas Governor Rick Perry fell into a tie with Herman Cain in the Washington Post's GOP poll Monday. Perry called Republicans heartless if they opposed in-state tuition for illegal aliens. You'd think as Governor of Texas he'd be the last one to forget the Alamo.
