George W. Bush Dodges Foul Ball At Texas Ranger Game [VIDEO]

One of the most surreal moments of George W. Bush's presidency happened when a Iraqi reporter threw a shoe at him during a press conference.

Love him or hate him, we can all agree that Bush showed excellent reflexes when he dodged the shoe, which was headed straight for his face.

Those reflexes got another test during Monday night's baseball game between the Texas Rangers and the Chicago White Sox.  Bush was sitting in a front row box when a foul ball headed in his direction.  While he did flinch a little bit, the 43rd president basically maintained his cool (as opposed to some of the other folks who were in the box) and allowed the ball to bounce harmlessly in front of him.

Read on to see a video of Bush's latest dodge, and the infamous shoe incident.

If the Cops Come Knocking, Don’t Flush

We need to be innovative on this one kids, here's what to do. Get a bunch of lutefisk, cook it up and put a plate in each room. Turn the heat in your home on high and let that smell permeate the whole house. Now you can fire up and smoke to your brains out.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Fathered Child With Household Staffer

According to a report in the Los Angeles Times, former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger fathered a child over 10 years ago with a longtime member of his household staff.

Schwarzenegger told wife Maria Shriver about the child earlier this year, after which she moved out of their Brentwood mansion.

"After leaving the governor's office I told my wife about this event, which occurred over a decade ago," Schwarzenegger said in a statement. "I understand and deserve the feelings of anger and disappointment among my friends and family. There are no excuses and I take full responsibility for the hurt I have caused. I have apologized to Maria, my children and my family. I am truly sorry."

'Celebrity Apprentice' host Donald Trump announced Monday that, despite previous intentions, he will not be running for President in 2012.

"I maintain the strong conviction that if I were to run, I would be able to win the primary and ultimately, the general election," Trump said in a statement, according to ABC News.

Life Sentences For Marijuana

To the best of my knowledge, The "Evil Weed" has been available since the 1940's for sure, probably longer, and I'm sure will be with us for years to come. I've always felt the punishment for use and or sale has been worse than the crime. I don't have a dog in this fight as I'm neither a user or seller however, my belief  is,  Oklahoma took a huge step backwards on this deal. Might be time for them to take a couple tokes off the peace pipe if you get my drift.
To many of us, the idea of anyone spending life in prison for a nonviolent marijuana offense is absolutely ridiculous. Yet with the recent passage of a bill in the Oklahoma State Legislature making the manufacture of hash punishable by life imprisonment, it is clear that life sentences for nonviolent marijuana offenders do exist. In fact, a new website is drawing attention to this issue and has identified several people who are currently serving life sentences for nonviolent marijuana offenses.

Women, Maria Shriver Wants Your Opinion.

I was reading an article about the split up of Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzeneger. It started as a hollywood glam article, you know the ones you read on the way out of the grocery store, but then became the story of....where does Maria Shriver go. I loved the fact that they put her voice and quotes into the story. She said she had spent her whole life fulfilling what others expected of her and had never gone without a job since college. She gave speeches on moving forward and thinking for yourself. Now, she is faced with many transitions and changes.
