Russia recognizes Crimea as independent state [VIDEO]

The mood in Sevastopol, Ukraine was cheerful and festive with many waving Russian flags and honking car horns to celebrate the passage of the Crimean referendum to join Russia on Sunday. Other cities have also joined in on the celebration, and international election observers even took time to note the festive atmosphere. Reporting that everything went according to plan, only minor hiccups were observed according to the observers. With the results now in, the Crimean government has officially declared independence and has sent a delegation to Moscow to begin adapting the Crimean financial system to accommodate dual currencies and also address energy issues.

Bill Young, Deceased Congressman, Had A Scandalous Love Life [VIDEO]

~

Drama at Florida Congressman C.W. Bill Young’s funeral. The deceased Congressman’s son decided to mention Mr. Young’s “other” family. Turns out the winner of the Christian Voice’s “Family and Freedom Award” turns out to have had quite the scandalous home life. Cenk Uygur (http://www.twitter.com/cenkuygur) host of The Young Turks breaks down this amazing story.

“One evening around Christmas in 1986, Terry Young heard a noise outside his home in Redington Beach.

He opened the door to find his father, Rep. C.W. Bill Young. The congressman had come bearing gifts for Terry, his wife and their four young children.

Terry Young said he relished the opportunity to share such a moment with his father. The two had been out of touch for more than a year after Bill Young divorced his wife of 36 years — Terry’s mother — and married his former secretary eight days later.

Less than a year later, Young was awarded the Family and Freedom Award from the Christian Voice, the nation’s largest conservative religious lobby.”
