The media has been obsessed this week with Renee's Zellweger's new face, with articles quoting plastic surgeons on why she doesn't look like herself. Zellweger says she looks different because she's happy now and doesn't admit to having plastic surgery.

Obama’s $1 Trillion Broken Promise

How much would you borrow to buy something that you would never use and might kill you and everyone around you? If we're talking about Uncle Sam's outdated and useless nuclear arsenal, the price tag is $1.1 trillion.

Former Clinton Administration Labor Secretary Robert Reich recently called on the government to force young people to spend two years either "serving" in the military or performing some other type of government-directed "community service."

Rush Limbaugh says Democrats politicize EVERYTHING.
