More NFL Bad Lip Reading, the Little Sisters of the Poor, And Other Very Important Stories that You Must Not Miss

It's Friday. I'm going to close out my shift celebrating a victory -- the Little Sisters of the Poor are winning against Obamacare's abortifacient mandate.

A U.S. Supreme Court ruling on Friday will enable a religious-affiliated non-profit and other groups like it to remain temporarily exempt from Obamacare requirements to cover birth control and other reproductive health they oppose for religious reasons.

The justices extended an injunction first granted on an emergency basis just before the New Year for a Catholic charity for the elderly run by nuns, the Little Sisters of the Poor.

The order will remain in effect while lower courts continue to wrangle with the merits of the primary challenge to the health law mandates on contraception.

Still, it is an important victory for the two groups that appealed socially charged requirements that were a negotiated compromise aimed at allowing coverage but also giving those who object a way around having to provide it directly.

The Obama administration continues to insist that nuns should pay for Sandra Fluke's birth control, which is utter madness.


The earth-shattering news that the mainstream media refuses to report. Because reporting it threatens to shatter their world.

A prototype for Noah's Ark? A prototype for Noah's Ark.

LONDON (AP) -- It was a vast boat that saved two of each animal and a handful of humans from a catastrophic flood.

But forget all those images of a long vessel with a pointy bow - the original Noah's Ark, new research suggests, was round.

A recently deciphered 4,000-year-old clay tablet from ancient Mesopotamia - modern-day Iraq - reveals striking new details about the roots of the Old Testament tale of Noah. It tells a similar story, complete with detailed instructions for building a giant round vessel known as a coracle - as well as the key instruction that animals should enter "two by two."

Round? That doesn't fit any of the drawings I've ever seen. The thing on Mt. Ararat is rectangular.

I'm conflicted over the Super Bowl. The NFL is too -- they might have to move it if the polar vortex demands it. Gee, a snow storm in New York in winter. Who coulda seen that coming?

I don't have a team in the game. That's been true since 1996. I do like the Broncos. I've always liked Peyton Manning. I've never had a problem with the Seattle Seahawks. Richard Sherman's post-game interview, the one he has apologized for, made me like him and the Hawks. Every subsequent revelation about him has made me like him more.

So I'm not sure what to do. Hope for a good game, I guess.

I will associate myself with this comment. Sherman had no reason to apologize. Justin Bieber, a burgeoning criminal who is not an American citizen, does.


Egads, the horror.


Obama says he has confidence in all of his nominees. That confidence is often misplaced. Obama was never vetted, and he doesn't vet many of his appointees.


This made me laugh.
