KANSAS CITY, Mo. – James Shields said he's a big believer in amnesia. For his sake, he'd better hope his Kansas City Royals teammates are, too, because they need to forget Game 1 of the World Series if they have a shot against the San Francisco Giants.

    FILE - In this Nov. 5, 2013 file photo, stickers wait for voters at a polling place in Philadelphia. Two weeks before election day, the nation’s likely voters have started seeing eye-to-eye with the election prognosticators.

RALEIGH, N.C. – Thom Tillis got the stage alone Tuesday night in North Carolina's tight U.S. Senate race, the only candidate on a statewide television program in which he discussed views on abortion, global climate change and differences with absent Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan.

The program initially billed as a debate between Tillis and other candidates turned into a one-hour conversation with him and two reporters, as well as responses to emailed or recorded questions from the public.

As American taxpayers worried about the terror threat from the Islamic State, the crisis at the border and the economy, the U.S. government spent their money to give rabbits massages, to teach sea monkeys to synchronize swim and to literally watch grass grow.

These and other examples of wasteful government spending were detailed by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn in his annual “Wastebook,” his final edition since he is retiring early next year.
