    Bad-week-after-bad-week for the besieged Obama White House- and this one still ain't even over yet! At a point in time when Obamacare's most unpleasant periods of implementation -and massive tax hikes- are yet to have hit, seems reality has already penetrated much of the public awareness...  at least to the point so that somebody besides medical professionals and small-businesses are frightened by this legislative Frankenstein.  Obamacare has never enjoyed 50% support in any poll I've ever seen- now today, barely a third of regular Joes and Josephines approve, just one point better than the all time low of 34%...

    Less than 10 percent of the coral reefs in the Caribbean show living coral cover and are on the verge of utter devastation, a new study reported in the Guardian states. Global warming, pollution and overexploitation are the main causes for the damage to reefs, Carl Gustaf Lundin, a director at the International Union for Conservation of Nature, .. "The major causes of coral decline are well-known and include overfishing, pollution, disease and bleaching caused by rising temperatures resulting from the burning of fossil fuels," Lundin said. .. ... Global warming is a big factor with coral reefs, the National...

    FLORENCE, S.C. (AP) — Florence police say a 9-year-old girl stabbed her grandmother after they argued about whether she could watch television. Investigators said the girl stabbed her 64-year-old grandmother in the back with a kitchen knife as she read the newspaper around 2 a.m. Thursday. The woman called paramedics, while the girl called her mother. Authorities say the grandmother was treated and released from the hospital, while the Department of Social Services placed the child in the custody of another relative. The girl will be charged in Family Court. Her name was not released because of her age.

    Fascinating that a structure, which was completed in 1982, has finally succumbed to the harshness of a massive winter snowstorm. Even more fascinating is that this structure that has been around for nearly 30 years finally collapses under the weight of ice and snow during, what is supposed to be, the height of a global warming meltdown.

    Now you know why Dems running in November are treating him like a leper they've never met, lol- A new, all-time low in Rasmussen's Presidential Approval Index today of -22...and really tanking. He now risks and unimpeded political free-fall right on the eve of the most vital of elections. Small wonder Dems on the campaign trail don't even want to be seen with the spontaneously-combusting Bolshevik Boy Wonder, to them he's become political poison... with "Obama" already a dirty word. Just twelve more weeks now before we set things straight, patriots... what we are witnessing today is the death rattle...

    Am I the only one who marvels at the futility of Man as he tries to explain the origin of the universe? The time and effort expended upon this pursuit could be far better spent upon issues that actually lack an answer. Trying to find a new explanation for the cosmos via science is like trying to reinvent the wheel. For the sake of argument let’s assume that the universe happened by accident just as many so-called scientists claim. With this as a starting point we can make the assumption that there was a source of crude matter from which...
  • Kerry Pulls Campaign Ads from Four States

    (AP) WASHINGTON - Bowing to political realities, Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry has canceled plans to begin broadcasting television commercials in Arizona, Arkansas, Louisiana and the perennial battleground of Missouri. The decision to shrink his political playing field reduces Kerry's strategic options — at least for now — in the homestretch of the campaign. George W. Bush won all four states in 2000, and Kerry can't win the White House without taking a state or two from the Republican incumbent. While pulling back from some states that Bush carried, Kerry is still strongly competing in several GOP-leaning battlegrounds, including Ohio,...
