More than one million Americans have escaped the clutches of the Democrats' destructive federal health care law. Lucky them. Their employers and labor representatives wisely applied for Obamacare waivers earlier this fall and got out while the getting was good.

The Topp twins could not fly in from New Zealand for the Teaneck International Film Festival, but you can meet them in the documentary, The Topp Twins: Untouchable Girls.

They are New Zealand icons, and are perfect for the theme of this year's festival: Activism: Making Change. See the film, November 20, 4:15 and November 21, 1:45, at Cedar Lane Cinemas. Buy tickets in advance for $5 at Animations, Brier Rose Books, or Teaneck General Store, or for $7 at the venues. Check www.teaneckfilmfestival.org for details.
