    I'm putting together a CD to give to each of my children as they were growing up from birth to the end of their teenage years. I've chosen the song, "You're Gonna Miss This", by Trace Adkins. I have the song saved in Real Player but when I try to add the song with the pictures it will not play.

    The Weekly Standard ^ | May 12, 2008 | Robert Satloff
    Gallup says only 7 percent of the world's Muslims are political radicals. Yet 36 percent think the 9/11 attacks were in some way justified.On the inside back cover of books published by Gallup Press there is the following breathtaking statement: Gallup Press exists to educate and inform the people who govern, manage, teach and lead the world's six billion citizens. Each book meets Gallup's requirements of integrity, trust and independence and is based on a Gallup-approved science and research. Don't be distracted by the bad grammar. Focus instead on Gallup's "requirements of integrity, trust and independence." Thanks to a remarkable...
  • Food riots, anti-U.S. protests erupt in Somalia

    The Christian Science Monitor ^ | May 7, 2008 | Jonathan Adams
    Food riots and anti-US protests in Somalia are compounding the chaos in the long-suffering war zone in the Horn of Africa. Meanwhile, an Amnesty International Report released Tuesday alleged that Islamist militants, as well as US-backed Ethiopian and Somali government troops, are committing widespread atrocities against civilians in the capital, Mogadishu. And a recent US strike against what it says was an Al Qaeda leader in Somalia has sparked further protests. The Associated Press reports that Tuesday saw a second day of protests over rising food prices, with hundreds of youths burning tires, throwing stones, and blocking roads. Somalia is...

    New York Post ^ | May 3, 2008
    World powers agreed yesterday to try again to lure Iran to the nuclear bargaining table, this time with a repackaged set of carrots to accompany the stick of UN sanctions. Diplomats said the offer contained no major new enticements but was meant to remind Iran that talking is still an option. The central terms of a 2006 compromise stand: Iran could trade worrisome elements of its nuclear program for economic and political incentives and the possibility of a better relationship with Washington. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad turned down that offer, saying it had strings attached. The Security Council has since...

    BEIJING - China's Health Ministry issued a nationwide alert Saturday calling for heightened efforts to control a virus that has caused the deaths of 22 children in one city and shows signs of spreading. Health bureaus around the country must step up monitoring for hand, foot and mouth disease following a "relatively large" outbreak in the central city of Fuyang, the Health Ministry said in notices on its Web site. The ministry warned that cases were more numerous this year than in recent years, and the peak for transmission would likely come in June and July. The outbreak is another...

    Borderfire ^ | April 12, 2008 | Tom DeWeese
    I wrote the following article in 2006. To me, the discovery of the Eden Institute and its promotion of a Tom DeWeeseconcept called “globally-acceptable truth” was the answer to so many questions. It is the root of political correctness. It is the cause of intolerance of independent thought and values in our society. It explains the purpose of the restructuring of our schools. So many parents have asked why the schools are failing to teach basic academics. The fact is, the schools are working perfectly for the purpose they are now designed to perform – globally acceptable truth. In other...

    When I came on FR this morning my configuration had changed. In order to see my sidebar I have to use the bottom scroll arrow to see it. I went to 'configure sidebar' but to no avail. I also went to my account to tinker with 'my preferences'. There are only three options on it now. (1) Thread Pagination (2) Browsing (3)WindowsNone of these are any help in getting back by previous layout. Any help sure would be appreciated.

    Your despairing opus yesterday moved me to reassess what our country was, is and can be again. But you must not give up! You can never stop fighting against those who are determined to bring us down as a nation and a people. No matter the odds, you cannot give in, give up, or roll over and pull the blanket up over your head. You let them win if you do that.Our culture our heritage our God our liberties are worth fighting for to our dying breath. I believe in my heart our country is on the road to a...

  • Obama Dodges Farrakhan Issue

    It’s one thing for Barack Obama to have a minister, friend, and sounding board who supports and admires Louis Farrakhan and whose church gave him an award. It’s another thing for Obama to dissemble about it. That’s what Obama did recently when he told Jewish leaders in Cleveland, “An award was given to Farrakhan for his work on behalf of ex-offenders, completely unrelated to his controversial statements.” In fact, the award, named for Obama’s minister Jeremiah Wright Jr., was given for “lifetime achievement” and for Farrakhan’s “influence on the African-American community.” The presentation of the award last December and the...

    VIENNA, Austria - Russia and China on Tuesday scuttled a Western attempt to introduce a resolution on Iran's nuclear defiance at a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency, diplomats said. The decision appeared to be the result of lingering unhappiness by the two world powers about not being informed earlier of plans for such a resolution. It came a day after the U.N. Security Council imposed another round of sanctions on Iran for refusing to suspend uranium enrichment. Iran defiantly vowed to continue its nuclear program, which it insists is aimed only at generating power. Moscow on Monday had...
