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!

Regarding Katrina and direct deposit, they would still have problems getting their money. Banks close if there is no electricity. It would solve some problems but not all the disaster problems.
I do like direct deposit, the money gets there at midnight, I can transfer electronically between accounts. It helps and saves me a trip to the bank. The bank is open only when I have to work, most of the time.

Have you noticed how C-Span repeats any of the president's speeches just before the call in show each morning? They show him, then read the nasty headlines about him from the NY Times and Washington Post, etc., then open up the phone lines for people to slander him. They set it up everytime, for the dems to go into hissy fits early in the morning.

Yes, you've mentioned how you hate the media and I hate them just as much. All day long, all I've heard from the presser with the Iraqi president is the president's quote about taking responsibility for what went wrong in New Orleans. They leave off the part where he said "anything the federal governmnet may have done wrong" and they also omit the praises of the Iraqi president. I actually want to throw up everytime I hear them mention his name, because I know something derogatory is coming hext.

I've noticed that Laura isn't smiling a lot lately, when she's facing the media. She always has a smile at other times, but not to the media. I think she's angry at them and I don't blame her one bit.

You are so right. Good post. :) Maybe we should bombard the WH email board and send President Bush and staff some notes of encouragement. Just remind him that there are those who support him and are not being blinded by the media bias. Everyone needs encouragement and sometimes we forget that.

What was even more sickening to me was it did not take Blanko long to step up to the microphone and say "FEMA and the federal gov't are taking too long to get the dead bodies out." I knew the minute Bush took blame for the fed. gov't she would be wagging her head in agreement and not get the subtle hint that she should do likewise. How on earth these people look in the mirror is beyond me.

Same here I like payment into my account. Though I am lucky I do not work Saturday and Barclays in Ashford are actually open all day Saturday.

I forget of course that each State would probably have their own banks of course in the UK they are national banks so if Ashford was without electricity and I was in Birmingham I could draw money out without any problems because all the records of my account would be central and if that went down they should be able to re-route to another centre.

I forget the vast size of the US and that each State is almost like another country.

I have really had it.

So have I. The lies of the leftist media have gone beyond the ability to tolerate any more.

It is the exploitation of human tragedy to hurt this innocent, Godly man that have just enfuriated me..........more angry than I have ever been before. Even FOX reporters seem to be enjoying perpetuating the lies and misrepresentation......even some I once trusted, like John Gibson....... "Oh, this is juicy news. Let's keep this attack going, then people won't think we're an arm of the Bush White House."

And here he is, at a phenomenal press conference with the President of a new democracy, a country FREED by the strength and resolve of this good man, and all the press can get from it is that he somehow 'confessed' to being the cause of the pain? The rest is IGNORED?? (Even by Brit Hume).

It is HIDEOUS how they have twisted what he actually said..........and who will know or care?? Just US?? Just Rush and Hannity and Tony Snow listeners and pro-Bush freepers??

No wonder Laura is angry. I read her comments expressing her fury that these idiots are calling her dear husband a racist.

How low can they sink? How evil ARE these people??

Ohio if you are doing the thread tonight could you mention to everyone to send an encouraging email to the President? I know he probably does not read them but his staffers do and would make sure he knows we are standing behind him. He really could use it.

Hi Pippin! :) Instead of listening to Rush and Glenn Beck during the day(I love both of them, but am so tired of all the political stuff right now) I have been listening to the Harry Potter tapes on "The Half Blood Prince" Not really finding many more clues, but it has been very therapeutic to listen to the tapes instead of all the other stuff.

I've not seen the black soy beans. Can you tell me more?

Tom, where do you get the "bag of soybeans" you talk about getting each month, and would you be willing to share some recipes, via FReepmail, of course. Thanks in advance, both of you.

Pictures, quotes and articles that you'll never read on the Washington Post or NY Slimes website, can be read on the Washington Times.

They are to newspapers, as FNC is to television.

We finally have a conservative voice in print again. I heartily commend it to you. In fact, on Mondays, on page 2 they print excerpts from some Pastor/Priest/Rabbi's sermon and profile the Church/Synagogue. Refreshing to see religion covered once again.

Also Bill Sammon and Bill Gertz, whom you've seen on Fox News, work for that newspaper.

I realize where you live, you can't get an actual paper to read, but you can, by subscribing to read it online. The full newspaper is available for reading through a newspaper reader that makes me think I'm sitting on my couch, reading my paper!

If you don't want to subscribe, "most" of the paper is available for free, at www.washtimes.com.

I heartily suggest you let Brit Hume know how disgusted you are that he didn't mention what ELSE the President said at the press conference with the President of Iraq.

Send to brit.hume@foxnews.com

He's prolly gonna change his personal email address after this, but for now - this is the one "he" reads!

That is uncommonly nice of you, Eleanor. Thanks. I'll definitely keep that in mind.

I was watching BBC News the other night and caught an interview with two team members from your country after their win at The Ashes.

They didn't speak nearly as clearly as you do. ;-)

Hey Truthy -

(how are you doing, btw, and have you moved?)

I use the black soy beans because I am doing Atkins/low carb due to diabetes. They are lower in carbs than kidney beans. You might try your local healthfood/whole food grocery store.

However, I didn't find any near me and resorted to the web. I get them from Vitacost.com. Put 'black soy beans' in the search box on the left and the item will come up.

I use them in chili, Indian curries, and minestrone soup. Tommix2 is the expert on the bag o'beans. I guess I'm too lazy to deal with the raw beans.

Have you never listened to the tapes? It is very addictive. The British actor who does them is quite good and has an intoxicating voice. Yes so much more relaxing than Rush or Sean these days. Not their fault but the constant tyrade the media has against Bush is wearing on my nerves and I need a break. :)

http://www.vitacost.com/ This is the URL of the on line food store that radiohead gave me. Order Eden Organic Black Soy Beans. They have it in 15 oz cans, very good and not expensive. You don't have to soak these. They also hve lots of other good stuff;

Thanks for the suggestion of the Washington Times. I had a print subsciption for several years, but have been on the move the last few years and so did not keep it up. Now that I am getting settled, I think I will subscribe again.

I hope you are continuing ro recover. You remain in my prayers.

Thanks for the info on the canned black soybeans.

Frnkly, I'm scared to use any canned soybeans. I have a problem with yeast in any form and most canned items (tomatoes, tuna, etc.) make me VERY sick.

Now, fresh soybeans - yes. But you didn't tell me where you get yours from.

The Wash. Times is currently running a $30 subscription for 6 months - a real deal! If you call the circulation office, you need to ask, "Do I need to talk with a special promotion number or you can offer me this special?"

It used to be they would give me a "promotion office" but now anyone in the circulation office seems to say, "I can give it to you for that price" and proceed to process the offer.

I'm not doing much better, in terms of strength and ability to move. It takes 1 or 2 crutches to keep me upright, every day, most of the day. And yes, I did move. It was an awful experience. The moving company scratched, or flat out broke every antique I own. I'm now sorry I didn't sell all of it before I moved as it was in excellent condition. Now it's all going to have to be repaired. And yes, I am thinking of suing the moving company, especially the truck driver. I think they've been trying to "retire him" for several years, and clearly, they need to not have him as their trucker anymore.

It's a mess, and being on crutches,it's really difficult to get unpacked. But I have a pool in my backyard and when I get tired of the boxes, I just go down and sit by the pool as it's now gotten too cool to swim in it. We've been having nights that drop down into the 60's and that'll chill a pool right quick!

Thanks for the prayers. Please don't stop!

You have mail, re source for soy beans.
On the can of black soy beans it says: Ingredients:Organic black soy beans, water,kombu seaweed. Might be OK for you.
