Obama’s Birth, Bin Laden’s Death

My goodness gracious, what a week it has been for wild and wacky news stories. First, the President of the United States finally succumbed to the mounting controversy and asked the State of Hawaii to produce some evidence that he was actually born there. In fact, President Barack Obama had an aide fly from Washington to Honolulu to pick up the “Certificate of Live Birth.” 

Babe Ruth Hits His First Homerun

In this column last week, we mentioned one important milestone in baseball – the longest game ever played ended in 1-1 tie after 26 innings. And both teams used only one pitcher for the feat! Today, let’s celebrate the beginning of another important era in the Nation’s pastime.

Victim of your own success?

*Are you a “taker”? If you’ve been even halfway successful, apparently our president thinks so. During a town hall address last week, President Barack Obama said, “[My opponents’] basic view is that no matter how successful I am, no matter how much I’ve taken from this country… somehow I now have no obligation to people […]

On April 27, 1789, a criminal act took place that led to one of the most amazing ocean voyages in history, as well as numerous books, films and popular songs.

Tax Freedom Day, “King” Charles And Shameless Vote Buying In India

*Congratulations! Now you get to keep some. Shame on me. I failed to mention that Tax Freedom Day occurred on Tuesday, April 12. In case you’re not familiar with the phrase, it’s a calculation of when the money you earn is yours to keep, instead of going to Uncle Sam. This year, the Tax Foundation […]
