    No longer a blank slate: Obama, 4 years laterBy JERRY SCHWARTZ, Associated Press – 1 day ago Nearly four years after Barack Obama was elected to the most powerful office in the most powerful country in the world, the question remains: Who is he? He seemed to come out of nowhere. He had served seven years in the Illinois Senate, and less than four years in the U.S. Senate — a meager political resume, augmented by a stirring speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. His was an exotic story, at least by the standards of the 42 white men...

  • Al Sharpton, today's Orval Faubus

    DeMaurice Smith, NFL Players Association chief, urged the league to nix Rush Limbaugh's participation in a consortium to buy the St Louis Rams. Buying Al Sharpton's hype that Limbaugh is a racist, Smith whined that football is at its best "when it overcomes division and rejects discrimination and hatred." But who are the discriminators and haters here? Sharpton blocked Limbaugh like Governor Orval Faubus tried to block black children from entering Central High in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957. Limbaugh can't make an investment because some don't like him? Based on something he did? No, based on who they allege...
  • FCC Announces May 7 'Diversity Committee' Meeting - Behold a New 'Fairness' Doctrine

    Behold one of the new "Fairness" Doctrines - "media diversity" - coming soon to a radio station near you. President Barack Obama's Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has released the names of the thirty-one members of their Advisory Committee On Diversity For Communications In The Digital Age. This May 7 gathering is made up of a laundry list of left-wing grievance groups, with a smattering of radio and television companies included to break up the monotony. Not a single conservative organization is taking part in this Commission - more than a dozen Leftist groups are. A little ironic for a "diversity"...

    It is not often that I agree with what is in the San Francisco Gate (sfgate.com), but I will admit that I disagree with the Bush Administration regarding the federal government persuing obscenity charges like the one that is chronicled by Mark Sherman. According to Sherman, there have been forty federal obscenity convictions since W. took office, while there were only four under the eight years of Slick Willie. Alberto Gonzales, like John Ashcroft are not turning a blind eye like Janet Reno did.

    Coffee 'can make mind go blank' By Nic Fleming (Filed: 20/07/2004) Drinking coffee can cause tip-of-the-tongue moments when the brain struggles to retrieve information, according to a study. Caffeine, widely held to make people more alert, can make the mind go blank or struggle to switch between trains of thought. It can help the brain process information rapidly but interferes once the brain tries to switch between subjects, researchers claim. Volunteers were split into two groups, with one given 200 milligrams of caffeine - the equivalent of two cups of coffee. They then answered 100 questions after reading 10 "priming...

    Astronomers have completed their most sensitive search yet for radio signals from intelligent life in space. They believe the best way to find ET is to look for a radio signal. Such signals can travel vast distances. The Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico, supported by Jodrell Bank, searched over a period of 10 years. The scientists looked at 800 nearby stars with no evidence of a signal from ET. They say they have learned a lot, and plan another search next year. From the ashes The last star scrutinised by Project Phoenix - the most powerful search for intelligent...
