We thought that Charlie Sheen would never pass through our non-tabloid site. We just had to announce that Sheen says he is not convinced that Obama was born in the U.S.A. Wow this is the first example of the "Truther-Birther" we have seen and it all came from Charlie Sheen. I am not thinking this is a "winning" strategy for 2012. But hey why not. Charlie Sheen for President! Oh wait, he can be Trump's Running Mate To be honest, we did mention Sheen when a poll showed him beating Obama in a head to head run for President. So who is really the nut cases Sheen or the voting public? During Charlie Sheen's Tuesday performance at Washington DAR Constitution Hall, the actor-turned-sideshow confessed that he's one of those who are unconvinced of President Barack Obama's [...]
Who are the Patriotic Millionaires? Is a real Patriot a strong supporter of Country or a political party?
Here is the so called "patriotic millionaires" . Since their first letter from November 22, 2010, they have added another 55 to their ranks.

Maybe one should run over to http://www.opensecrets.org/ and type in the names of those who appear [...]
On "Meet the Press" December 26, top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett said President Obama's "biggest regret" is that the severity of the economic crisis forced him to "spend almost every waking hour in Washington focusing very hard on solving that crisis" and thus kept him from traveling the country to connect with the American people. According to Jarrett, Obama recently told aides, "I really want to figure out a way where I can spend more time outside of Washington listening and learning and engaging the American people." Jarrett says that in 2011 the president's schedule will "reflect that priority" -- that is, include more time outside the nation's capital. But it turns out Obama has already spent nearly half his presidency outside Washington. As of January 2, Obama [...]
