  • Amazing/Gross - Baby Has Foot Growing in it's Brain

    The parents of Sam Esquibel know him only as a miracle baby. The Colorado Springs infant survived surgery to remove what was believed to be a tumor when he was just 3 days old. "The doctors said to us, 'This one is for the books,' " mom Tiffnie Esquibel said. Inside the microscopic tumor was what looked like the formations of two feet, a hand and thigh. "To find a perfectly formed structure (like this) is extremely unique, unusual, borderline unheard of," said Dr. Paul Grabb, the veteran pediatric neurosurgeon who performed the operation on Sam at Colorado Springs' Memorial...

    The U.S. Conference of Mayors, and the Washington-based nonprofit Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) were the key sponsors for a discussion on foreclosures across the country.

    Can you just imagine if there was actual videotape of the Ku Klux Klan in full white robe and hood dress, standing in front of a polling place with nightsticks, intimidating would be voters from exercising their right to vote on Election Day. Our side has been accused of this kind of stuff for years, especially when the Democrat candidate for President has lost an election. We heard about this kind of stuff going on in Florida back in 2000 but there's never been any video or even a photo that has ever surfaced that has shown such a despicable...

    You gotta watch this video from France. Some group called Europalestine.com organized a "boycott" to protest the Israeli's. Boycott's usually mean your not going to buy the product anymore right? Not for these French. Instead it means to steal what you can while screaming about the "criminal" Israeli's.... [video at site] A reader to Powerline notes it is even more disgusting then first glance: This video is even more grotesque than you think. It was shot in a suburb of Paris called Aulnay-sous-Bois. The next-door town to Aulnay is called Drancy, about 1 mile away. Drancy was used by the...

    Is this the VERY beginning of the downward spiral of our currency? I am beginning to notice that the Euro and Pound are going up daily. The Euro was at 1.23 now at 1.35 and the Pound previously 1.36 to 1.50...is this the beginning of inflation? Oil rising as well...this could be the tip of the "turd" ready to erupt. Hey, printing all that $$$ will eventually have consequences, there really is no escape from that. Never in the history of man kind has "throwing money" at a crisis helped...NEVER!

    There has been an ongoing effort in the liberal, secular Mainstream Media here in the United States and in the Global Media abroad to demonize Israel at every opportunity. As I was following the many different news outlets especially during the recent Gaza War, I was astounded over the anti-Israeli bias. This Bias was so blatantly obvious that even a fan of MSNBC couldn’t miss it. The Mainstream Media was hell-bent on slamming Israel on all fronts of the war in Gaza, and Hamas knows this.

Team "O" wants us to believe that they did not know about the AIG bonuses until two weeks ago, March 5th. This is all a big fat fu*king lie! Who are they trying to kid? Seriously! This is preposterous that President Obama is blasting AIG and his "outrage" is creating chaos! Chris Dodd knew about it when he secretly placed an amendment into the CRAPUulus Socialism Bill over a month ago? Did no one bother...

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 1/10-11/08 | David Gaffen
    On both sides of the Atlantic, investors are finding very different experiences when buying country-specific debt. Wednesday, Germany sold €4 billion ($5.49 billion) of debt, but low demand forced the Bundesbank, Germany's central bank, to retain about one-third of the issue. That fueled concerns that subsequent auctions from Spain, France and the U.S. also would fall short of expectations and be a sign that the global market was starting to balk at government-bond issuance. It would be especially troubling for the U.S. The vast lending and spending undertaken by the U.S. Treasury Department and the incoming Obama administration will have...

    I must admit, and I do so with delight, that I am an apostate of the new religion. With the advent of The One, so too comes the era of religion of the state, complete with all the vestiges of the paganism it recalls. To deny its sanctity is blasphemy of the highest order for the state is all and its prophet is infallible. The development of this new religion has been long in the making and its arrival heralds a new day for the oppressed and down trodden. No longer will the oppressed masses lie at the mercy of...

    Observing the Sarah Palin phenomenon, does anyone feel like they're trapped in a singularly creepy remake of "Night of the Living Dead"? George W. Bush has been a political corpse for years. But Palin resembles a female version of Bush, brought back from the grave to win the election. You wouldn't think that the Republicans would want to exhume Bush. After all, his presidency has been a historic disaster, and the American people know it. But Bush was successful at one thing: winning elections. With its policies and ideology in ruins, Bush's political game plan is all that the GOP...
  • New Mexico, Mcain takes lead by 2%, climbs 8% its 49 to 47

    09/10/2008 2:13:05 PM PDT · by sunmars · 8 replies · 120+ views
    or the first time all year, John McCain has topped Barack Obama in a New Mexico poll. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey in the state shows McCain attracting 49% of the vote while Obama earns 47%. Although the two-point lead is not statistically significant in a poll with a four-point margin of sampling error, it’s quite an improvement for McCain from August. At that time, Obama was ahead 48% to 44% (with leaners included). Since then, the Republican has gained ground among Hispanic voters and those not affiliated with either major party.

    John McCain’s selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate has made a huge difference in her home state. McCain now leads his Democratic opponent nearly two-to one, 64% to 33%, according to a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of voters in the state. It is the first poll taken since Palin, who is extremely popular in Alaska, joined the GOP national ticket (crosstabs available for Premium Members).

    I was watching program on John McCain on Fox News this afternoon. And I realized something. There is only one Republican in this country that would have picked Sarah Palin as his running mate, John McCain. Those who accuse John McCain of just picking Sarah for a measured shallow cheap political trick are wrong. John McCain is the kind of guy who follows his gut feeling instead of conventional wisdom or polling data. He is like that baseball manager that brings in a pitcher with a poor ERA in to strike out the side. The football coach that throws a...

    I'm a regular blue collar guy, and I just donated a years pay to McCain/Palin. I was worried sick about the rumors that he would go to Lindsey Graham, Leiberman, etc. McCain wasn't my first choice, but he picked a conservative. She's pro-life, a life member of the NRA, a hunter, and she just worked to build a new gas pipeline. She has a son headed to Iraq. She's young but already has far more executive experience than Obama. I've never heard her say God-D**m America. To me, she seems to be the personification of a Obamas' "bitter Americans" clinging...

    Russia will need an additional $5 billion to finish the construction of its segment of the International Space Station (ISS) by 2015, the head of Russia's rocket and space corporation Energia said Friday. The ISS is a joint project of space agencies from the United States, Russia, Europe, Canada and Japan. The orbital station is likely to remain operational until 2020. "So far, we have allocated about $4.2 billion for the ISS project, but we will need an additional $5 billion to finish the construction [of the Russian segment] by 2015," Energia President Vitaly Lopota said at a conference dedicated...

    Jonathan Kay of the National Post (Canada) is sure that we'll miss the old media when its gone. So sure he wrote a paean to how great the media is... and he missed the target by a wide margin on every point he made. Unfortunately, he took a good point and made a mockery of the truth of the matter with his wrongheaded reasoning. In "You'll miss us when we're gone" Kay asserts that the media exists for "a genuine, altruistic desire for an educated citizenry" and hopes that predictions of its "imminent extinction" are wrong. He also claims...

Not only has the highly- influentional Hilton family struck back, who once donated to McCain’s campaign, about the affront to their offspring, fans across the nation are riled by the commercials offending their women, no matter how controversial they may be. Moreover, Paris can sue McCain in many states who have “right of publicity laws.” Simply stated, you cannot use a person’ image to sell anything without...

The small group were acting under Iowa law that states private citizens have a responsibility to arrest someone if they believe a felony has been committed. That person is then turned over to police officials and a...
