Anyway, Barbara Corcoran's fortune teller and magic spelling gypsies have not helped Florida residents sell their homes or pay their mortgages since the housing slump hit America. I thought that scene was a candid camera joke on me; I looked around my living room to see if there were hidden cameras secretly taping my reaction. I usually work with CNBC on in the background.

My Abducted Two-Year-Old American Guest Worker Daughter in Syria

Since her abduction by her mother last summer, my two-year-old US citizen daughter, who is in ailing health, remains in her abducted country of Syria under the immigration status of "Palestinian Immigrant Worker." Fox News: ▸ video ▸ story Sofia needs to appear every three months before Syrian immigration authorities to renew her "guest worker" visa, stamped in her American passport. Syria, one of the most oppressed regimes in the world together with North Korea and Iran, does not offer many human rights, freedom or democracy, nor does it recognize the International Hague Conve...
