The IRS admitted spending four million dollars at an Anaheim conference that included suites, spa and luxury dining. They said they don't know the exact amount because they did not keep the receipts. That excuse didn't save Al Capone and it's not going to save the IRS.

The NSA was revealed Friday to have recorded all phone calls made in the U.S. on Verizon in the last two months. What's the big surprise? In the last two elections, polls showed Americans felt that Barack Obama was the candidate who was most likely to listen to them.

Michael Douglas was honored in New York Tuesday at the American Cancer Society's annual dinner. He even got a call from the president. After reviewing Michael's Verizon bill, the president was genuinely concerned that he's calling phone sex lines way too often.

New York slapped a warning label on sugary fruit and energy drinks Friday. They're trying to make it criminal to be overweight. It's only a matter of time before the U.S. Senate hears testimony that the IRS has been pressing Weight Watchers groups for names.

Olympic star Lindsay Vonn was forced to give a urine sample to a World Anti-Doping Agency agent during a fashion awards dinner she was attending in New York Tuesday. It's galling. The IRS just called the World Anti-Doping Agency and asked if they do Republicans.

Florida retiree Gloria MacKenzie was identified Friday as the holder of the winning ticket in last week's Powerball Lottery, giving her the jackpot of $590 million. She is 84 years old. For crying out loud, she's set for life.

Dallas Ft. Worth Airport announced they will rent out soundproof hotel rooms by the hour in the DFW terminal. This is where airport security has taken us. If two people congregate in an airplane lavatory, it's considered a terror cell.

The TSA dropped its plan to allow passengers to carry small knives Thursday. They were just trying to be fair. The TSA didn't think it was sporting to have people groped for their underwire bras and knee replacements and not have a knife to defend themselves.

Google Glass will not allow pornography apps on the Internet-connect glasses. This is completely unfair. if you're in a Google driverless car and wearing Google Glasses it's nobody's business what you're doing in the back seat.
