There’s a reason Congress’s approval rating is below 10 percent and the President’s is plummeting. It’s not because they can’t work together, as some may think, it’s because the American people don’t trust either party anymore.
NEW YORK — The price to board an airliner in the United States has risen for the fourth straight year, making it increasingly expensive to fly almost anywhere.
Oh no, here we go again. Arizona Republicans will be asked again this year to “hold our noses” and vote for another “centrist, compassionate” (could that possibly mean R.I.N.O.) Republican. The last time it was for Mitt “Hundreds of Millions of Family Trust Fund Dollars squirrel-awayed in so-called ‘off-shore Caribbean Island Nations’ Romney.”
The Little Sisters of the Poor, who operate a nonprofit hospice and nursing home, as a matter of conscience don’t want to be in the position of providing abortifacients and contraceptives under Obamacare, as most employers are required to do.

From education to economic development, the Town of Gilbert ended 2013 with solid economic prospects, a sterling reputation for safety and a couple of issues that irked several of its residence. But the year might be best known for how it contributed to the foundation of what the town can be in the near future.
President Obama, switching the subject from Obamacare, recently gave a speech describing income inequality as the most significant issue of our time. Advancing inequality “is what drives me”, he said, because it “poses a fundamental threat to American prosperity”.

Hamilton coach Steve Belles took the playoff mantra "win or go home" and applied it to one play Monday night.
The team went 7-5. He sometimes held the ball too long in hopes of trying to make another circus play. He threw 12 interceptions, blah, blah, blah. Statistics are half of this story: 61 percent completions, 2,678 yards, 32 touchdowns and 12 INT; 767 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns. Pretty good.

At 6-foot-2, 187 pounds, he still didn’t reportedly have a single college offer, but even more hard to believe would be that not changing real soon.
