    POLITICS: Liberal women seen as weak on terrorism issues, study finds A new study from UC Riverside suggests that Hillary Clinton may have two big obstacles working against her going into the 2016 election: she's a woman and she's a liberal. Those two traits combined make voters think twice about supporting her when terrorism is in the news, according to a news release from UCR about the study. The study cites researchers from UCR, Tulane University and Vanderbilt University who have learned female democratic presidential hopefuls are viewed by voters as weaker and less capable than their male and republican...

    No doubt, President Bush has one knee on the canvas. What is in doubt is whether he's buying time or simply cannot get back up. Just look at the serious body blows he has taken lately: His bold Bush Doctrine of striking down terror before it shatters us is in disarray in Afghanistan, Iraq, even here at home. His magnificent ambition to plant the seeds of liberty and spread freedom throughout the enslaved world is unraveling. His sworn obligation to protect Israel, one of America's few authentic allies, at all costs, and never to accept a peace in Lebanon that...

    STRASBOURG, France - European Parliament president Josep Borrell called on the 76 countries still allowing the death penalty to respect the right to life and end the practice of capital punishment. Borrell said the United States is the only democratic state that makes "widespread use" of the death penalty and the EU has a duty to convince the Americans to abolish it. "Most unfortunately, in the U.S. the 1000th execution was carried out. The fact that it almost coincided with Human Rights Day makes this fact particularly poignant," Borrell told the EU assembly. "Luckily the death penalty is disappearing throughout...

    Mr. Sparks (her fiance) said Ms. duFresne was strongly against capital punishment, and would have felt some sympathy for her young attacker. "This isn't about some bad, murdering criminal," he said. "It's about a culture that makes it so easy for kids to have guns."
  • Bill Bennett and Sean Hannity Support Torturing Saddam

    On Hannity and Colmes a few moments ago, Sean and Bill Bennett (who I think is one of the most respectable analysts out there) both supported torturing Saddam and others to save American lives. I disagree with that for a number of reasons, but the foremost being that it is wrong in the eyes of God. Since this is my first posting of a thread, I apologize if the sourcing/location and stuff is wrong. I'm interested in others' opinions.

    Speaking out Jeri Reed doesn’t swell with pride when the war in Iraq is promoted with a Toby Keith song. Her son faces death every day and is already changing as a young Army soldier in a ‘morally wrong’ war, she said. By Brian BrusJeri Reed wants her son back home. Not just because she has the same concerns any loving mother has for her child when he’s in a deadly situation daily as a target for angry personal and physical attacks in Iraq, but because the entire war “is morally wrong on many levels,” she said.“I was really concerned...
