  • McCain's supporters trust that he's lying

    All successful politicians must have at least some talent for lying about what's in their hearts and convincing people that it is the truth. But Sen. John McCain has a unique genius for telling the truth from his heart and making people believe that he is lying. And these people are his supporters! They admire him as a straight talker and they forgive him for taking positions on big issues that they find repellent on the grounds that he doesn't really mean what he says. "Oh, he has to say that to get the Republican nomination," explain many Democrats with...

    From it's 'about us' pop-up: "Due to the intellectual decline of so-called "Third World" or "Developing" countries, the people of those societies often look to the West, or "Developed" countries for intellectual, political and societal leadership. This website is an attempt to dispel the myth that there is anything in the West that is worthy of mimicking by other nations. While there is technical advancement in Westernised nations, this has been achieved at an immense societal and human cost. This fact is often overlooked by those intellectuals in Muslim and other Third World countries who call for Westernisation as a...

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch ^ | 08/11/2005 | Sylvester Brown Jr.
    SIX, MOSTLY YOUNG, opinionated, politically active individuals kept me glued to my seat as they discussed black politics at the St. Louis Bread Co. in the Central West End on Tuesday evening. The group debated why black voters are taken for granted and how to wield political clout and deflate religious conservatism. They argued the pros and cons of emulating politically powerful ethnic groups. I've attended similar meetings where black Democrats discussed and debated such issues. But this was my first meeting with a diverse group of black Republicans. I'm all for political diversity. For too long blacks have handcuffed...

    Next on CBS!God condemns G.W. Bush In biblical passages just obtained by CBS News, the Almighty issued direct instructions which would seem to condemn the actions of President George Bush's conduct in the Texas Air National Guard. Contemporaries of God have reviewed these documents and confirmed they are in line with His views and manner of expressing Himself. President G.W. Bush has long made known his adherence to biblical teaching, but the White House refused to comment on this apparent discrepancy. Watch for this story on the next 7 weeks of '60 Minutes.'

    --snip-- Q33 (Forrest):  Have you seen The Passion of the Christ?  If so, what did you think?A33:  I have seen it.  I have mixed feelings about movie depictions of the central event in the Christian faith.  For myself, I have the Bible and that works well for me.  Also, I’m a Protestant, and we tend to be more Easter focused, while traditionally, Catholics have been a little more Passion focused.  So it did me good to spend a little time there.All that being said, I think it was a pretty fine movie, and darned if it didn’t get people talking...

    Consumer Confidence Improves in April 14 minutes ago Add Business - AP to My Yahoo! By ANNE D'INNOCENZIO, AP Business Writer NEW YORK - Consumer confidence improved strongly in April, helped by a brightening job picture, the Conference Board (news - web sites) reported Tuesday. The Consumer Confidence Index (news - web sites) rose to 92.9, up from a revised 88.5 in March, the New York-based group said. That was better than the 88.5 that analysts had expected. Lynn Franco, director of The Conference Board's Consumer Research Center, said the improvement was sparked by a more favorable assessment of current...

  • Dems Tell Bush to Stop Negative Attacks (!)

    Crying wolf Charles Krauthammer WASHINGTON -- As the Democrats enter the final stages of their primary race, the emerging story is how the Republicans are preparing to go negative in the general election with a campaign of singular viciousness against John Kerry. Kerry's spokespeople have already sounded the alarm, warning darkly that ``the right-wing smear machine'' is gearing up, and declaring amusingly that ``it's time for George W. Bush to call off his right-wing slime machine.'' When exactly was it called on? No matter. A CNN anchor dutifully picks up the theme, noting ``how ugly this is turning so early...
  • Deaf Group Smears Administration in Tiff Over Funding

    I've never before seen the actual birth of an Urban Legend, but it is an illuminating process to witness. In an editorial on the Palm Beach Post, columnist Dan Moffet publishes a scathing indictment of the Bush Administration's Department of Education for an under-the-radar attempt to puritanize the materials that the government closed-captions for deaf children. It paints a picture of a paternalistic government, fueled by fanatical Christianity to the point that it merits comarison to the Taliban. It warns that even now a 'puritannical' government seeks to protect the 'impressionable' from 'inappropriate' influences. It warns that the government is...
