Today, President Bush met with Iraqi President Jalal Talabani in the Oval Office, and together they had a joint press conference in the East Room of the White House.

This afternoon, President and First Lady Laura Bush left the White House for New York City, where the President will address the United Nations.

Enjoy your trip to Sanity Island on the Daily Dose!

Some companies pay every week, usually on Friday....that's all over the country. I get paid every other week, and so does my husband, we off set weeks, which means we get a pay check a week. He gets his direct deposited into our account, I still get a paper check, which I like better myself. Some places, usually government jobs get paid once a month. Alot of places are going to direct deposit, it doesn't cost them as much in administration fees.

You missed Tim Roemer on F & F the other morning. It was hilarious. Tim was talking with Brian and Steve I believe when Roemer suggested that there be a 911 type panel with unbiased people investigating the Hurricane response. Then Roemer made the mistake of saying that they should appoint Jimmy Carter, and little Brian piped up with no hesitation and said "You gotta be kidding!". It knocked me over to look at Roemer's face and how he backed off that suggestion. Way to go Brian!

Wow. I hope he's not sick.

He's the only MSM anchor left now, so maybe he's suffering from some kind of depression.

I can't speak for everyone, but I think most people are paid every two weeks, or twice a month........like on the 1st and the 15th of the month.

That's pretty standard. And it only goes directly into your account if you want it to in most cases. My husband's salary goes directly to our account, and I pick up paychecks from both my places of employment.

That is because of the article that came out from one of the biased reporters that said that GWB is just nice to people in front of camera's for show and that he is a tyrant to work for and nobody likes to work for him. I am sure that Bimbo got the info from that. There was a thread the other day on it, and I bet that it was Colin Powell, now out of the loop and backbiting again,wanting to feel important again. He was such a leaking backbiter when he was in the Administration, and now he has no info to leak and he sees Condi getting a lot of favorable reviews and is jealous.

Congratulations! You finally made number one and got a toaster. Now you can concentrate on other things. That picture looks a bit fuzzy, sort of like a painting. Why is that? But it is a beautiful picture.
I have the picture of George and Laura on the porch that RNC sent. Recently some dear friends that I had not seen for many years visited me from San Antonio and she saw the picture on my wall and exclaimed "I took my son to see him when he was Governor", but I do not know whether she likes President Bush or not, and I was afraid to ask.

Eden's black soy beans are delicious, easy to prepare, and good for too!

The cost is why most companies in the UK have gone that way. I also think that employees that get paid in this way will have fared better in the Katrina disaster because any monies owing them can be deposited straight into their account those that are paid by cheque or cash surely will have great problems getting their money.

"what a couple!"

Couldn't agree more! That picture of the 2 of them leaving the WH - they look like a couple of models out of a page on a fashion magazine - Excellent picture.

Someone mentioned earlier they liked Laura's hair a little longer - I do, too - think she looks fabulous in this picture. Love both their suits!

Yes, he could be sick, but it looks more like he let himself go. I know Brian Williams took his place, and he was showboating down in the Superdome the last two weeks. He came out and said the Media was taking the gloves off, well they have already had them off for Republicans, and they certainly will not hold Crazy Mary or the other crooked crazy dems in charge in Louisiana.

Good evening, OWF and everyone. I was able to catch just a bit of the press conference today between GWB and the Iraqi president. I have been following GWB's career very closely since early summer 1999. I've tried to catch most of his public appearances, and when that wasn't possible, like most Dosers, I followed him via photos.

I thought I had seen all of his many expressions and moods. But today was the first time I have ever seen him appear so subdued and maybe even a little depressed. It made me worry about him -- worry for him.

We expect WAY too much from our presidents. No single human being can do everything expected of the modern presidency. Indeed, the presidency wasn't designed to be what it has become. Aided and abetted by an ignorant, biased, lazy MSM, as well as by political opportunists of all stripes and a pathetic education system, most Americans seem truly clueless about the way our system of government works.

We have states for a reason. Each state has a government that is, essentially, a smaller version of the federal government, again for a reason. Both our federal and state governments have three separate branches for a reason. Within our states, each county and municipality has a council-type local government structure, for a reason.

Yet it all seems lost on the vast majority of the American public -- or so it seems to me after the events of the last two weeks.

Sigh. Sometimes I think, "What fools we Americans are. Even with all its flaws, we have the best system of government ever devised, but so few of us bother to learn about how it works and who's responsible for what."

In any case, with the Katrina disaster, the MSM, working hand-in-glove with the usual race hustlers and Left/Democrat demagogues have just succeed in pulling off a huge hoax. The federal response to Katrina was HEROIC, yet the Leftist cabal has succeeded in convincing people around the world that it was the opposite.

We do not get the choice which is normal for the UK. it goes straight into our bank account on the 21st of each month.

The cheque system has never really been used in this country it went straight from weekly cash to monthly deposit into bank account to help a lot of companies paid the first 2 or 3 payments fortnightly.

I have a friend who is paid weekly but it still goes straight into his account not cash or cheque.

Isn't it a letdown, when grow to like and respect a person and find a lot in common and then find that they believe the MSM. After the election one such couple that are really nice people told me the were moving to Cost Rica "because of the political situation here". They are still here and I remain on good terms, but avoid the subject of politics.

Glad to hear you are enjoying the black soy beans. I just had some this morning in some leftover chili. I just don't have the foresight to soak beans the night before, etc. Open the can, put 'em in the pan!

I have the same pic from the RNC that you are talking about. I also have a more formal one. I have them both up, but I should really get them framed. I love looking at our First Couple.

Is it getting cooler out your way yet?

Hopefully most companies had adequate back up facilities and those employees who are responsible for them had put the tapes in safe place ie took them home on the Friday and hopefully took them with them when they evacuated. I know at our company the person that does the back up keeps them in the glove box in his car.

You make such good points, Wolfstar.

Imagine that so many Americans don't even know that the states and cities have the primary responsibility to take care of their own, and that the federal government should only come in as a safety valve, or in extraordinary circumstances. It's unbelieveable!

How have we managed to become such an UNeducated group of people (don't tell me..........I know. Liberal public education).

Blaming this GOOD man for this tragedy is just unthinkable, and yet the MSM has bullied stupid Americans into believing it.

Continued prayers for the President and for the TRUTH!!

As an outsider looking in and from the limited knowledge of your system I find it outrageous and amazing that the MSM have managed to pull the wool over the average America's eyes on this one.

On the other hand I am not because thinking about the how much the average Brit knows about our system is frightening and gives the media or whoever opportunity to spin

It is very easy. Most come out of liberal public schools.
Liberal news media, liberal newspapers, liberal mags.
Many people find it difficult to think for themselves,
or take the time to search out limited conservative newsmedia, or mags. In other words, liberalism jamedown our throats only people like us on FR arn't sheep.

I can't believe the quote from PRESIDENT TALABANI. The media is sure not reporting this. All I heard from that press conference was that the President was taking responsibility for the hurricane response. I can't believe this statement wasn't reported! Well, maybe I CAN believe it.

You do have newspapers of various points of view don't you? We used to have both conservative and progressive daily papers but now there seems to have been consolidation and almost all of the big papers are progressive. The television networks have a monopoly because of licensing. I too find it outrageous that the MSM have managed to pull the wool over Americans' eyes. I wonder what we can do to regain a free press.

For some reason, this is getting to me more than all the other media lies.

The horrid blaming of the President for the hurricane, and the continued lies and cover up about what's going on in Iraq are making me sick!

I just listened to the whole press conference on C Span, and it's earthshaking stuff! And being completely ignored by the media........even FOX..........even Special Report!

I think I've got to write to Brit again. This is just WRONG!

Yes we have right and left wing papers it used to be that the right wing far out weighed the left but recently it seems that the right have moved more to the centre and the left more to the left. The sad thing is that most British people do not even realise that the newspaper they are buying has any political agenda and do not readily realise that it is either left or right wing.

We read the Daily Express which is right wing but even that at times is not very pro the Bush Administration and I wonder really how much the actual journalists understand of your system to be fair and balanced in reporting Katrina aftermath.

Most people sadly in the UK buy their newspaper for the sports column or the page 3 pin up and do not care really whether the news content (if there is anything worthwhile) is right or left and would not recognise it anyway.

I think this gets to us because human suffering is involved and it is plain wrong to spin political agenda when people are suffering and I am sure this is why the President made the statement today even then the press twist it saying he is taking full responsibility basically for everything. I am sure that is how the UK papers will show on their headlines tomorrow PRESIDENT BUSH TAKE ALL THE BLAME etc etc if not the newspapers the TV news will use this in their headlines even if they explain a bit further on what he said the headline comment will do the harm.

And on the Iraq bit they are not interested because it does not further their agenda, they will not report this until they have worked out how to spin his words to their end but rest assured they will so what he said will have 101 interpretations by the end of the week.

Very true and sad and what is even sadder most people do not even realise this and feel that what they have been exposed to was fair and gave them opportunity to decide for themselves this is the clever way that so many of the teaching profession manage to do this.

Apologies to any teachers here but the majority I have found because in reality they have never left school or the hot bed of academia which is rife with left wing ideologues are socialist/liberal in outlook and pass this on whether intentionally or not because in some cases they do not realise how brain washed they are.

I think the Left is getting frantic and desperate because they realize they are not winning, not fooling enough of the people and so they become more and more extreme in their lies. Perhaps these extreme lies will make it more obvious to more people that the news is slanted. And more people are reading blogs now.

I would think their parents would realize that if their children are going to prosper in this country they need to speak english and would insist that their children be taught english.
