    I just lost my beloved Wolfhound this morning. He was diagnosed with Lymphoma in October and was doing really well. He died of complications as a result of the chemo.Jamie was the best dog in the world. I never even had to train him, he just always did what I asked him to do. He was one of those good natured protectors. You know the type, they didn't bark, they just got between you and whoever. Since he weighed 192 lbs nobody ever bothered to test him, they just kept their distance. You could take him anywhere, he had perfect...

    Speaking of Condit's voting record, he actually has a pretty fair record of showing up to vote. I am trying to track down his record for every year. So far, I learned that in 1997, there were 640 votes cast that year, and he missed just 8 votes. 98.75% rate. Puts him in the top quarter of the house. This year, he attended all votes until May 17th. He was in town too. That is the kicker... well he was in town that morning. There was just a routine procedural vote at 10:26 that morning. He showed up for that. ...

    Tonight, the people of Kalmath stand up for all of us. The open gates allow the life giving waters to flow out over the Kalmath basin. Tonight, we stand guard with them, if only in spirit.The government should determine the value of the crops that the farmers have had ruined by the withholding of water and should reimburse the farmers of Kalmath. This should be done quickly, before any more damage has been done to these families. Call and write your congressman and demand that something be done immediately!

  • U S Will Restart Wide Negotiations With North Korea

    New York Times ^ | June 7, 2001 | Jane Perlez
    WASHINGTON, June 6 — President Bush announced today that the United States would restart negotiations with North Korea on a broad range of issues, including that nation's production and exporting of missiles and its deploying of soldiers on the South Korean border. When Mr. Bush came into office, he signaled a tough posture by declining to continue President Clinton's talks with North Korea, saying negotiations would not resume anytime soon. He said he wanted time to review the talks and United States policy. Today in a statement, Mr. Bush said he hoped that the renewed contacts would foster reconciliation ...

    I received a request from a fellow Freeper who asked if we would pray for Mr. Weyrich. He has been an exceptional friend to one of our own, ignoring his own problems as he comforts others. He broke his back in 1997 and is now confined to a wheelchair and is in considerable daily pain.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush said Tuesday ``it's time to move on'' from investigations of President Clinton, even as Republicans in Congress expanded their inquiry into Clinton's eleventh-hour pardon of fugitive financier Marc Rich. The House Government Reform Committee asked the Secret Service for logs that would indicate how often Rich's supporters visited the White House before the pardon. The panel also issued its first subpoenas, including ones for bank records from Clinton's presidential library and Rich's ex-wife Denise. She has been a major contributor to the library, the Democratic Party and Hillary Rodham Clinton's Senate campaign. A Senate ...
  • In Speech, Bush Charts New Course for Military

    New York Times ^ | February 13, 2001 | David E. Sanger
    NORFOLK, Va., Feb. 13 — President Bush said today that he planned to break with Pentagon orthodoxy and create "a new architecture for the defense of America and our allies," investing in new technologies and weapons systems rather than making "marginal improvements" for systems in which America's arms industry has invested billions of dollars. In the second of his speeches on national security this week, Mr. Bush appeared to take sides in a long- brewing debate in the defense establishment over whether to invest in entirely new technologies and weapons systems, even if that means neglecting older and outdated ...
  • Bush Seeks $5.7 Billion Increase for Military Salaries & Benefits

    New York Times ^ | Feb 12, 2001 | Steven Lee Myers
    FORT STEWART, Ga., Feb. 12 — Even as conservatives in Congress pressed for more money for the military, President Bush today proposed shifting $5.7 billion in Pentagon spending for increased pay, improved health care and better housing, warning that substandard benefits and aging barracks were taxing soldiers and their families. Speaking to 8,000 soldiers and visitors assembled on a parade field at this sprawling Army post west of Savannah, Mr. Bush used unusually pointed language to depict the armed forces as frustrated, demoralized and unappreciated, a theme he often used in last year's campaign. "While you're serving us well, ...

    Here are the facts: We are nothing more than a large group of citizens who are gathered in a great nationwide electronic townhall meeting because we are concerned about the liberals and socialists within our government who are stepping up their continuing assault on our constitutional rights. We are alarmed that the so-called "watch dog" free press is no longer working in the best interests of we the people or for the defense of liberty. The major media, whom, heretofore, have stubbornly denied their liberal bias, are now openly joined with the enemies of the Constitution and of the Republic ...

    Thursday, August 24, 2000 Gore College Tax Credit Leaves Out Most College Students Austin - When Al Gore travels to the University of Maryland today to explain his college tax credit plan, will he tell the students about his proposal’s fine print which cuts most of them off from receiving tax relief? “Due to the complexity and the narrowness of Al Gore's tax credit, most college students either cannot or will not receive any tax relief from his proposal," said Bush spokesman Ari Fleischer. "The more you look at the specifics of Al Gore's tax plan, the less tax relief ...
