    A woman's sex drive begins to plummet once she is in a secure relationship, according to research. Researchers from Germany found that four years into a relationship, less than half of 30-year-old women wanted regular sex. Conversely, the team found a man's libido remained the same regardless of how long he had been in a relationship.

    The Bible is a book of bad news and good news. First the bad news: Human beings are sinners. Our sin separates us from a holy and righteous God, provokes his wrath, and causes us to ultimately suffer death and eternal separation from Him. (Rom. 3:23, Rom.1:18, Col.3:6). More bad news: We are without excuse. As a result of our wickedness, we have suppressed the truth about God made known to us and are deserving of his righteous wrath. (Rom. 1:16-32) That's a bitter pill to swallow, but it's not the end of the story. There is good news. The...

    As if collateral problems were not enough to freak out investors, now there's more bad news to destroy any semblance of confidence building in European markets this week. The DAX is down 3.24%, the FTSE 100 is down 2.28%, Italian FTSE MIB is down 3.29%, and Athens is down 3.49%. Bond spreads are sharply increasing between Germany and the periphery, and Greek yields are going nuts. Bad employment numbers and new impediments to the Greek bailout package (it's not just collateral anymore, folks) top the list of bad headlines today. Let's summarize: - Greece has paused negotiations with the EU/ECB/IMF...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 4/16/2011 | William Jacobson
    There's not much I can add to Mark Levin's explanation of why Donald Trump does not represent the conservative or Tea Party movements. He wasn't there when we needed him, and he helped those who were against us. So why the swirling support around Trump? Much of it, without doubt, is name recognition. But that cannot explain it completely. As of now, Trump is the only one willing to meet Obama's smash-mouth attitude with smash-mouth attitude. Obama can invite Paul Ryan to sit in the front row for Obama's budget speech, and then spend 45 minutes calling Ryan everything but...

    LAS VEGAS -- Federal agents seized five pounds of C-4 military explosives from the home of a man accused with a Navy SEAL and a Las Vegas associate of smuggling machine guns from Iraq into the U.S. for sale and shipment to Mexico, authorities said Thursday. Grenades and night-vision goggles also were found in the Colorado home of 34-year-old Richard Paul, according to federal prosecutors and federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents in Las Vegas and Colorado. Paul and Andrew Kaufman, 36, of Las Vegas, were arrested Wednesday and appeared Thursday before federal magistrate judges in Durango...

    The bad news is that there is a lot of bad news. BP, known to our president as British Petroleum, is destroying the ecology of the Gulf of Mexico, and wrecking the economies of the states that abut it. The eurozone is in a state of chaos as profligate nations prove unable to repay the money they have borrowed, creating the possibility of another collapse of the international financial system. Tensions in the Middle East and on the Korean peninsula are rising. Japan’s prime minister has resigned, as has Germany’s president, unsettling the political picture in both countries, not good...

  • WSJ/NBC Poll: Democrats Better to Get Country Out of Recession

    By more than a two-to-one margin, Americans believe the Democratic Party is better suited to getting the country out of a recession over the Republican Party, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll to be released today. Almost half of all respondents, 48%, identified the Democratic Party, while just one in five, or 20%, said the Republican Party. Some 8% said both parties were equally qualified, while 16% said neither party was qualified. Comparatively, in December 1990 when the U.S. economy was also going through a recession, the Democratic and Republican parties tied at 33% when asked who...

    Heritage Foundation ^ | February 25, 2009 | David C. John
    by David C. John WebMemo #2310 Bad policy is not improved by limiting it to certain situations. The Helping Families Save Their Homes Act (H.R. 1106) would allow bankruptcy judges to reduce the principal owed on a mortgage, a practice often referred to as a "cramdown." Judges would also be able to reduce interest rates or lengthen the term of the mortgage. This is a huge policy mistake that will help only a few people while raising the cost of borrowing for thousands of moderate-income and first-time homebuyers. Although supporters claim that this is a limited provision that applies only...

    America's sky is falling. A Los Angeles Times/Bloomberg poll conducted last month found that 78 percent of Americans think that the country is heading in the wrong direction. Of course, almost 4 in 5 Americans think the country is heading to heck in a handbasket. The news media are stuck in one gear when it comes to reporting economic news - Armageddon. As Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters so aptly noted, many journalists are besotted with Barack Obama. That makes them open to any bad news that can be tacked onto Republican George W. Bush. But it's more than liberal bias....

Two key US senators briefed on the attack planned to go public with their opposition to the move, according to the source, but their projected New York Times op-ed piece has yet to appear. The source, a retired US career diplomat and former assistant secretary of state still active in the foreign affairs community, speaking anonymously, said last week that the US plans an...

    When tough guy interviewer Bill O'Reilly had his much anticipated interview with Hillary last week, Hillary stated flatly, "We can not win militarily in Iraq." This answer, like so many others, went unchallenged. Despite the fact that we are in the process of a military win in Iraq. Can you spell surge? The media and the Democrats are largely silent on Iraq these days. Unless its to celebrate the anniversary of the Bush photo op declaring "Mission Accomplished". Or to throw roadblocks in the way of the, now successful, surge. Or to keep the body count in the public eye....

    The growing number of young Hispanic mothers is the primary cause for an uptick in Montgomery County's teen pregnancies, according to state statistics presented yesterday to county leaders. In the county, which has one of the lowest overall birthrates in the United States, the birthrate increased 16 percent from 2002 to 2005 among all women 15 to 19, according to a report by county staff. In the same period, births for women in that age group dropped nationally and statewide. Births among Hispanic women 18 to 19, which have particularly driven the growth in teen pregnancies in Montgomery, have increased...

    The budget impasse in Sacramento is unwelcome news for the soon-to-be-termed-out legislators who hope to persuade voters next year to let them keep their jobs a little longer. It also is a problem for Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who wants to enact major health care reform this year. His situation is particularly delicate, since the budget is languishing because he cannot persuade the members of his own party to vote for it. Perhaps more than anything except a badly handled disaster, late budgets have the potential to drag down approval ratings. They make leaders look ineffective at the main task they...

    Perhaps the budget deficit is getting too large. The IRS is trying to get eBay Inc. (NASDAQ:EBAY) to turn over records on its customers, especially the larger ones, so that the IRS can go after those who have not paid taxes on their auction transactions. What fun. Getting a company to rat out its own. eBay is fighting the move, but the government seems determined to go after merchants, especially those who have transactions of over $5,000 a year. The government may have a point; tax evasion is a serious business. And so why shouldn't eBay potentially poison its relationship...

"It's bad news and we need to improve it," said Thomas Schweich, principal deputy assistant secretary of state for international narcotics. "But we don't feel it's a hopeless situation, and we don't think the overall strategy is the wrong strategy." Schweich spoke to reporters as Western officials in Afghanistan were forecasting a possible 40 percent increase this year in land under opium poppy cultivation, despite hundreds of...

    In the course of campaigning last year, President Bush faced an unending stream of attacks for his War on Terror. His opponent, Senator John Kerry (D-MA), repeatedly denounced Iraq as “the wrong war at the wrong time in the wrong place.” While many of the president's recent speeches have reminded us of our successes, and assured us that “the best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world,” the media continues unabated in its negative portrayal of the War on Terror. As evidenced by history, popular morale influences the outcomes of wars—so the...

    Tom Fenton symbolized the once-grand stature of CBS News as a foreign correspondent. Now Fenton has become something else to television news: a voracious critic. His book, "Bad News," comes out Tuesday and is an insider's condemnation of the declining standards and bottom-line mentality of the news business. "I wrote this book out of conviction," Fenton said in a telephone interview from his home in London. "I don't have a lot of illusions it's going to change things." Fenton does not spare his former employer for what he terms CBS' cutbacks in foreign news. He tells how in 1996 he...

    A Glimpse Ahead Timothy Snodgrass The Impossible Will Come Alive In 2005 01/28/05 In January of 2004, as we began to intercede for the New Year the Holy Spirit gave us the prophetic slogan, "The Seas will Roar in 2004". This year we were given a new slogan, "The Impossible will come Alive in 2005". As the veil of darkness begins to come down over nations and regions, along with great shakings will come great breakthroughs; signs, wonders, healings and a spectacular release of miracles in impossible circumstances. This year, although we are ultimately poised to gain much ground, there...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008.

From USNews.Com's Washington Whispers: Hillary's in… You don't have to take it from us about Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton 's desire to run for president.

    Supporters of fox hunting stormed Britain's parliament Wednesday and clashed with police in the streets, but failed to stop lawmakers from voting by an overwhelming margin to ban the blood sport. Debate was suspended for 30 minutes after five pro-hunt protesters, in the first incident of its kind in modern times, burst into the House of Commons chamber -- the second dramatic security breach in London in three days. "Clearly the intrusion was a carefully planned operation," said Commons speaker Michael Martin, adding that parliament was asking police to carry out a full investigation. The five, wearing T-shirts depicting Prime...

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - The number of hunger-striking Palestinians in Israeli jails has almost doubled to 2,900 in the week since the protest was launched, the Prisons Service said on Sunday. But Israel vowed not to budge on the prisoners' demands that wardens stop strip searches, allow more frequent family visits, improve sanitation and install public telephones. Seen by Palestinians as symbols of resistance to Israeli occupation, some 1,500 inmates began refusing food on August 15. Israeli officials called the liquids-only fast a ploy by prisoners to secure easier communication with militant groups spearheading a four-year-old revolt and refused to negotiate....
  • 'Unhappy Workers Should Take Prozac'--Bush campaigneer

    A campaign worker for President Bush (news - web sites) said on Thursday American workers unhappy with low-quality jobs should find new ones -- or pop a Prozac to make themselves feel better. "Why don't they get new jobs if they're unhappy -- or go on Prozac?" said Susan Sheybani, an assistant to Bush campaign spokesman Terry Holt. The comment was apparently directed to a colleague who was transferring a phone call from a reporter asking about job quality, and who overheard the remark. When told the Prozac comment had been overheard, Sheybani said: "Oh, I was just kidding." While...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - This is the way the world might end: A genetically engineered pathogen is released, debris from an erupting "supervolcano" blocks the sun or scientists in the biggest "bioerror" of them all accidentally trigger a matter-squeezing "big bang." The demise of civilization has been predicted since it began, but the odds of keeping Planet Earth alive and well are getting worse amid a breakneck pace of scientific advances, according to Martin Rees, Britain's honorary astronomer royal. Rees calculates that the odds of an apocalyptic disaster striking Earth have risen to about 50 percent from 20 percent a...
