    Dear Conservative: I think it's bad Obama won - we all do. Let's stop whining and look for a solution to voter fraud other than photo ID. I suggest creating a stand with a camera 100 feet outside of the entrance of the voting location, pointed at the voting entrance, and tape it from beginning until closing. Play the video back and count how many actually entered the polling location. This would be legal and effective. This could be done secretively or out in the open. We then have a video document that will actually counteract voter fraud and would...

    Apparently, the magnetic shifts in the Sun mimic those that occurred during the mini-Ice Ages of the 17th century, reports the Japanese Astronomical society. They also claim that this is the reason for the "halting" in the progress of global warming. Basically the sun's magnetic field has shifted from a straight N-S configuration - to a N-Equator Equator-S, 4 pole configuration This supposedly occurred during the 17/18th century and was responsible for the mini Ice Age.

    Conservatives: I have always been a adamant conservative, but I have lately seen the desperation inherent in the Obama administration as displayed by their new attackwatch.com site. I also have become extremely sympathetic to the fact that he is now being attacked by his own party.

Since Democrats have now begun to criticize Obama, perhaps they fail to realize that they are breaking their own party's ideals. Friends, let's make sure that Obama knows about these egregious deviations from Democrat Party...
