    Senator Sessions ^ | May 4, 2015 | Senator Sessions Jeff Sessions
    Congress has the responsibility to ensure that any international trade agreement entered into by the United States must serve the national interest, not merely the interests of those crafting the proposal in secret. It must improve the quality of life, the earnings, and the per-capita wealth of everyday working Americans. The sustained long-term loss of middle class jobs and incomes should compel all lawmakers to apply added scrutiny to a “fast-track” procedure wherein Congress would yield its legislative powers and allow the White House to implement one of largest global financial agreements in our history—comprising at least 12 nations and...

    "Yes, Nellie, thank you. (Applause.) Thank you very much, Nellie. And I want to thank everybody there for taking part in today's March for Life.

And, Nellie, it's good to hear your voice again, and I thank you very much for giving me a chance to visit with you and the crowd that is assembled there on the Mall. (Applause.)

    "National Priorities:When a secretary of defense gets confirmed 95-2 apparently because he says we are not winning a war, you know Uncle Sam must have a sign on his back that says "kick me." We've come a long way from that day in April 1986 when President Ronald Reagan ordered Operation El Dorado Canyon, an air strike on Libya by two dozen F-111F fighter bombers in retaliation for a terrorist blast at a West Berlin disco that injured 200 people, including 63 U.S. soldiers, killing two. Back then we took the fight to our enemies.".....

    Life on Earth was unlikely to have emerged from volcanic springs or hydrothermal vents, according to a leading US researcher. Experiments carried out in volcanic pools suggest they do not provide the right conditions to spawn life. The findings are being discussed at an international two-day meeting to explore the latest thinking on the origin of life on Earth. It is taking place at the Royal Society in London.

    Hundreds of folks turned out on the steps of New London's city hall to support the property owners in imminent danger of losing their homes to eminent domain. The crowd numbered in the hundreds, at least, and they and we were a boisterous lot with the favorite chant being, "LET THEM STAY". I would have changed it to "Tar and Feather Justice Souter and the 4 Theives" but I was overruled. At any rate it had a certain flavor of the 60's with an elderly folk guitarist writing and playing a song supporting property rights. I loved it. LOL A...
  • Leaders: Ruling points to need for federal marriage amend.

    BPNews ^ | May 13, 2005 | Michael Foust
    WASHINGTON (BP)--When a federal marriage amendment failed in Congress last year, a number of senators -- including Democrat Joseph Lieberman and Republican John McCain -- opposed it on the grounds that states should be able to decide the issue on their own. Now that a federal judge has struck down Nebraska's marriage amendment -– despite voter approval by a 70-30-percent margin in 2000 -- conservatives are hoping those same senators will give a federal marriage amendment another look.

  • The Giraffe's Short Neck (Lamarckian, Darwinian, Neo Darwinian or Something Else?)

    The Nature Institute ^ | 2003 | Craig Holdrege
    "The idea that the giraffe got its long neck due to food shortages in the lower reaches of trees seems almost self-evident. The giraffe is taller than all other mammals, can feed where no others can, and therefore has a distinct advantage. It seems compelling to say that the long neck and legs developed in relation to this advantage. Why else would the giraffe be so tall? You find this view presented in children's books, in web descriptions of the giraffe, and in textbooks." "But just because this explanation is widespread does not mean it is true. In fact, this...

  • New Hampshire to evaluate Election Day voter registration policy

    More than 96,000 people registered to vote on Election Day overall. They made up about 15 percent of the state’s turnout. Orville Fitch, who has been overseeing election issues for the state’s attorney general, said he hopes to compile a "snapshot" of the affidavit’s use. He said the research may show if affidavits are used more often in some areas, such as southern border communities, when compared with central or northern areas. "Many people have expressed concern that Election Day registration or registration with domicile affidavit, or the two combined, are creating some opportunity to fraudulently register," he said, "and...

    March For Life ^ | 11/4/04 | jwalsh07
    22 Years of Prolife Work for God, Country and Neighbor Late in October 1973, grassroots prolife leaders became concerned that January 22, 1974, might come and go without properly memorializing the Supreme Court's infamous abortion decisions and without petitioning Congress for redress. No established right-to-life organization desired or was prepared to undertake the planning, financial and operational responsibilities for a prolife March on the U.S. Capitol.  But, grassroots prolifers wanted to march! Meeting in Washington around a dining room table, veteran prolife leaders from their state, county, and community organizations, resolved themselves into a temporary committee, selected a chairman, and...

    Re-Elect President Bush October 24, 2004 As in many past elections, Americans are closely divided over who should be the next president. It's not a clear-cut case of one candidate being far superior to the other. Yet history is not made by those who stand on the sidelines and wring their hands. The people must choose on Nov. 2, and The Courant recommends George W. Bush over John F. Kerry.
