Father’s Day is a celebration inaugurated in the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherhood and male parenting, and to honor and commemorate fathers and forefathers. Father's Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide and typically involves gift-giving to fathers and family-oriented activities.

Hillary Clinton Endorses Barack Obama


Now the journey ahead will not be easy. Some will say we can’t do it. That it’s too hard. That we’re just not up to the task. But for as long as America has existed, it has been the American way to reject “can’t do” claims, and to choose instead to stretch the boundaries of the possible through hard work, determination, and a pioneering spirit.

It is this belief, this optimism, that Senator Obama and I share, and that has inspired so many millions of our supporters to make their voices heard.

So today, I am standing with Senator Obama to say: Yes we can. Together we will work. We’ll have to work hard to get universal health care. But on the day we live in an America where no child, no man, and no woman is without health insurance, we will live in a stronger America. That’s why we need to help elect Barack Obama our President.



VCO Welcomes Our Newest Columnist


Hot Tips for Cool Investors

Barry Goren states: In my youth I was a professional bridge player. My aptitude for games landed me a job at the Chicago Board of Options exchange as a market maker. I moved to San Francisco to trade technology stocks on the floor of the Pacific Coast Exchange. My forte is options strategies and leveraging.

These days I trade from my Las Vegas home for fun and profit. I am considering a move to become a partner in a boutique hedge fund.

KUDOS to Michael Politz of the The Vegas Eye 

Michael Politz of the Vegas Eye has been selected to receive the Congressional Medal of Distinction on June 17th in Washington.

Michael states: I have a bit of a problem. I got a letter about me being selected to receive the Congressional Medal of Distinction this week, informing me a special reception had been arranged for me and a guest along with the Republican members of the House of Representatives.

THAT’s not the problem. My problem is … Which adult film actress should I ask to be my date?

Michael, you are so naughty...
