HOLLYWOOD - God bless America, and how's everybody?
The World's Biggest Liar annual contest was held in a northwestern English pub this week. It's the Super Bowl for storytellers. This year the winner gets an all-expense-paid trip to Washington to explain to Congress who changed the CIA talking points on Benghazi.
President Obama and Congress will begin budget negotiations Tuesday to avoid the pending fiscal cliff. Our elected leaders have run up a record $16 trillion in debt. If this were any other company in America that would mean it's executive bonus time.
GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio ducked a question in Iowa asking him how old he thinks the earth is. Some say 10,000 years and some say four billion. The only thing we know is that California has had a little work done and it's older than it looks.
Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin defied the White House and refused to comply with the Obama Care law. It's a different world. Last week the rap star Pit Bull was booked to sing at the Windstar Casino and three rednecks showed up with their dogs wanting to fight.
The Transportation Department blamed the recession for fewer people flying home for Christmas this year. They estimate a record 70,000 Americans will travel by train. That's a lot of people running along the tracks and hopping into open freight cars.
