http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The Pearl Harbor attack veterans reunion will be held in Hawaii Saturday. It's quite dull. Last year the surviving Japanese pilots who attacked Pearl Harbor showed up for the reunion, which was a big surprise, because they never announce when they are coming.

British Petroleum announced Monday the appointment of American Robert Dudley as its new CEO. The company says it's committed to new energy sources, Thanks to BP, Ford just invented a car that runs on water, but only on water from the Gulf of Mexico.

The Wall Street Journal blamed the economy on lower holiday retail sales Friday. It's solvable. The War on Drugs brought in more drugs and the War on Terror created more terrorists, maybe next year we declare a War on Money and Jobs, and watch what happens.

Ukrainians protested their government caving in to Russia and not joining the EU. Right now the Ukrainians want to take on the Russians while Japan looks eager to challenge China. This time of year, the only thing that impresses the pollsters is strength of schedule.

Auburn upset Alabama on the final play of the game Saturday when a kid ran a failed field goal attempt back for the winning touchdown. The kid got a call from the White House after the game. The Obamacare website designer wanted to know if he had any ideas.



Florida State might face Auburn or Missouri or even Oklahoma State for the national title in January. College football is a religion in the South. Last year, Mitt Romney carried all seventy-seven counties in Oklahoma because Obama sounds way too much like Go Bama.

The White House boasted Monday the Obamacare website can handle fifty thousand users an hour. That's one-tenth what Porn Hub does. The difference is, if you scroll down the list of porn hub titles, you can always find a nurse or a doctor who's willing to help you.

The White House asked everyone not to log on the Obamacare website during peak morning or evening hours. That leaves work hours. Look, the expensive health care plans are one thing, but asking Americans to give up their video poker time could cost Democrats the Senate.

GOP critics lashed out at Obamacare, saying while the website may be increasing enrollees, it'll result in fewer doctors willing to treat sicker policy holders at the expense of a shrinking pool of investors. If you are a health insurance company, I bet you that I'm going to die, then you bet me I'm going to live, and then I pay you a fortune, hoping you win.

President Obama was modest about his presidential good deeds in an ABC interview Friday. The truth is, he's improved race relations. After five years, rednecks don't like Barack Obama being president because of his policies, and that's genuine social progress.

USA Today reported on the urban street game Knockout, where urban youth sneak up behind white people on the street and deck them. It's spreading. In Philadelphia there's an Amish version of Knockout, where they sneak up behind a woman on the street and build a barn around her.

The Buffalo Bills hosted the Atlanta Falcons in Toronto's Rogers Stadium Sunday. It's a show of force. For one game a year, the U.S. sends NFL players up to Canada just to show the mayor of Toronto that when it comes to booze, drugs and violent behavior, he's all talk.
