    The former Massachusetts governor also brought up a new attack going after his rival on his legislation, the McCain-Lieberman Climate Stewardship Act: “Instead of seeing if there’s a way of stimulating the economy, McCain-Lieberman would depress the economy. His plan calls for a new financial burden to be placed on people who are purchasing gasoline or for that matter natural gas to heat their homes or to cook in their homes. The energy information agency has said that his plan would cost America 300,000 jobs. In addition, people would pay, they estimate, approximately 50 cents per gallon more for gasoline...

    GOVERNOR ROMNEY: "Thank you. This is quite an institution. It's good to be back here with you. It's good to be back in Michigan. "You know, somehow everything just seems right here. In the winter, of course, the skies are cloudy all day. Most of the cars you see on the roads are made here in the good old U-S-of A. "People know that pop is not a relative, it's a soft drink, and they know that Vernors is the best ginger ale in the world. "And of course, for me, I have a lot of memories here. This is...

    Bleeding-heart types looking for a "minority cause” for which to advocate in the 2008 presidential elections are torn between the candidacies of a woman, two African- Americans, a Hispanic and a former mayor of Cleveland who is more of a communist than Vladimir Putin. Tough choices, those, and all of them Democrats. In the interest of fairness, however, the name of Mitt Romney should be added to the shopping list of those searching for an oppressed minority to support. As a practicing member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons), Romney is aligned with one of...
  • Rats Run Wild In New York City KFC/Taco Bell Restaurant

    (RTTNews) - Fast-food giant Yum! Brands Inc. (YUM), which owns KFC, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut chains, was in trouble again on Friday when local television stations aired video footage that showed wild rats scurrying around the floor of a KFC/Taco Bell restaurant, located at 331 6th Avenue in Greenwich Village, New York. The latest reports, aired on New York's WNBC and WCBS television stations, showed at least a dozen large rats running between counters and tables and climbing on children's high chairs of the New York City KFC/Taco Bell eatery, which was open Thursday night but was closed today.

    DHS: Identity theft a growing means for illegal immigration DHS leader calls on Congress to approve stronger immigration measures after Swift plant raids Jeff Caldwell Agriculture Online News and Features Editor 12/14/2006, 9:45 AM CST A lack of action in Congress and no "magic bullet" to solve increasingly complex immigration problems played roles in the events leading up to and the execution of "Operation Wagon Train" this week at six Swift and Company packing plants around the country. The Department of Homeland Security-Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids of the beef and pork processing facilities Tuesday were the products of months...
  • IRS, Social Security Administration could slow illegal immigration

    WASHINGTON - Two federal agencies are refusing to turn over a mountain of evidence that investigators could use to indict the nation's burgeoning workforce of illegal immigrants and the firms that employ them. Last week, immigration cops trumpeted the arrests of nearly 1,200 illegal workers in a massive sting on a single company, but they admit that they relied on old-fashioned confidential informants and an unsolicited tip to get their investigation going. It didn't have to be that hard. The IRS and the Social Security Administration routinely collect strong evidence of potential workplace crimes, including names and addresses of millions...
  • Why Dubya's right to back Dubai on P&O

    Telegraph, Uk. ^ | 03/08/2006 | Jeff Randall
    Given the extraordinary amount of petro-dollars that Dubai has spent in recent years, much of it with US companies, transforming itself from a desert fiefdom into a centre for tourism, media, technology and finance, the tiny state's commercial interests are inextricably aligned with the West rather than the Jihadis. Dubai's Internet City has attracted leading US technology companies, such as Cisco Systems, Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard. American designers are behind the $1bn Burj Dubai development, which includes the world's tallest building. Boeing has been selling fleets of aircraft to Dubai's Emirates airline.
  • Foreign Agent Clinton

    The American Spectator ^ | 03/06/2006 | The Prowler
    Late Friday, Department of Justice lawyers in the Office of Legal Counsel were attempting to determine if former President Bill Clinton had registered as an "Agent of a Foreign Principal." Federal statute requires that anyone -- even a former President -- doing political or public affairs work on behalf of a foreign country, agency or official must register with the Department, and essentially update his status every six months. It was not clear the Clinton had done so. If his status is less clear, here is what we do know: If Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton did not know about her...
  • Meet the Clintons in and out of the UAE

    Khaleej Times ^ | March 4, 2006 | BILL O BRIEN & MATEIN KHALID
    MANY residents of UAE thought — mistakenly as it turns out — that they knew the Clintons. Former president Bill and former co-president/current New York Senator Hillary were deemed to be friends of the UAE — and the Arab world in general. While Hillary hadn’t visited the UAE recently, Bill is a regular — at least when he’s invited for a paid speech or appearance. Sometimes, he’s graced us in person — other times via a video conference. President Bush, everyone agreed, was an anti-Arab cowboy, worthy of little more than derision.
  • "Why The American Left Hates Us"

    Let us recall the halcyon days of the American Left. It is Christmas, 1945. World War II has ended just a few months earlier. The fascist Hun and great Yellow peril have been defeated, and the Left's true believers are basking in the glow of victory with their great and glorious ally, Uncle Joe Stalin. With no competition, the Left-leaning commentary of the Murrows and Cronkites dominates the airwaves. The socialist legacy of FDR is well in place, and few seem to recall that despite his myriad of alphabet soup agencies and programs, it was the war that turned the...

    Where do you go when you log onto the internet? Your initial foray onto the net could impact your whole day. Is it informative, positive, fun, negative? Since I use Internet Exployer, my default setting is!). It is loaded with too much stuff, and borders on sensory overload. At least it doesn't have flashing and annoying thingies like some sites. I have tried The Drudge Report(, which I find is not too bad. It is udated often and is relatively sedate and calming(except for some headlines). I think it would be fun to share some good homepage sites and ...
