  • Hillary: "Don't Let Anybody Tell You That It's Corporations and Businesses That Create Jobs!"

    This is how deranged and filled with lunatics the Democrat Party base is. She's saying that, and the fact that she said that tells me how afraid of Elizabeth Warren she is. Elizabeth Warren's been running around. You know her pet phrase (imitating Warren), "You didn't build that, Mr. Factory Owner. You didn't build that, Mr. Business Owner. You didn't do that. You couldn't have done that without all of us. We paid the taxes to build the roads. We paid the taxes to build the bridges. We made your business possible. You didn't build that." And Obama echoed it....

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s recent comment about trickledown economics has launched a war of spin. First, here’s what the likely 2016 presidential candidate said at a campaign event last Friday for Martha Coakley, the Massachusetts Democratic gubernatorial candidate: “Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs,” former Secretary of State Clinton said in Boston. “You know that old theory, trickledown economics. That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly. One of the things my husband says when people say, ‘What did you bring to Washington?’ He says, ‘I brought arithmetic.’

    Does Minimum Wage Create Jobs? The way to get higher pay is to increase your value to the job market. Every employee must bring more to the company than they take in pay and benefits. This is a requirement a company must meet to operate at a profit. The worker who wants higher pay and is willing to work for it must become more valuable to the company. He must become more of an asset or less of a liability. One way to become more valuable is to learn or improve in a trade or profession. Government controlled centrally...

    Last week, former LAPD officer Christopher Dorner went on a murderous rampage throughout Southern California, shooting seven people, including five members of law enforcement, killing three. Before he went on his spree, Dorner wrote a manifesto praising liberal policies on gun control, media personages including Piers Morgan and Chris Matthews and politicians including Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. But the bulk of Dorner's manifesto centered on his hatred for the police department from which he had been fired in 2009. He claimed in the manifesto that the LAPD "has not changed since the Rampart and Rodney King days. It has...

    Bill Clinton doesn’t like all the misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet. And he thinks the United Nations or the U.S. government should create an agency to do something about it. “It would be a legitimate thing to do,” Clinton said in an interview airing Friday on CNBC. The agency, Clinton said, would “have to be totally transparent about where the money came from” and would have to be “independent” because “if it’s a government agency in a traditional sense, it would have no credibility whatever, particularly with a lot of the people who are most active on the...

    The liberal media have become President Obama’s megaphone -- eagerly applauding his every move and repeating his talking points on everything from ObamaCare to his massive spending plans to government takeovers to the rest of statist proclivities. Beyond parroting the White House line on every national and international issue and event, the liberal media hide any story that exposes the many failures of this administration. The liberal media have no intention of truthfully reporting the news. Their goal is to discredit the opposition while dutifully and passionately reciting Obama’s liberal mantra as if it were news -- propagandizing in an...

    RUSH: From Sunday morning ABC's This Week Needs David Brinkley. This is during the panel discussion, George Will with Christiane Amanpour. Amanpour said, "We talk about symbolism, what the president needs to do. Politically he's moved to the center." Typical. He hasn't, Christiane, he won't move to the center. Anyway, "He's heeded the call of the people, so to speak," she says. "But when it comes to real solutions how do you kick-start and how do you make a dent in that 9.4% unemployment figure?" And this is what George Will said to Christiane Amanpour. WILL: I had lunch this...

    The biggest airline in the world will have the United name, Continental's globe logo and potentially far-reaching effects on air travel. Shareholders who on Friday approved combining the two companies hope the new airline attracts more top-dollar corporate travelers with its larger network while reducing costs. Some industry watchers expect the deal to lead to higher fares, but United and Continental say competition from low-cost airlines is sufficient to keep prices from rising.

    ( Scientists at the Technion in Haifa have created a device that they hope will be able to detect cancer with a simple breath test. In an initial trial, the “breathalyzer” test was able to detect lung cancer with 86 percent accuracy. The new device was revealed this week in the journal Nature Nanotechnology. Researchers hope the test will provide a simple, cost-effective and non-invasive method of detecting cancer. In addition, the test is capable of detecting cancers that are not yet large enough to show up on X-rays or CT scans, allowing for earlier diagnosis that could save lives.

    WELLINGTON (AFP) - Scientists in New Zealand and Japan have created a "tear-free" onion using biotechnology to switch off the gene behind the enzyme that makes us cry, one of the leading researchers said Friday. The discovery could signal an end to one of cooking's eternal puzzles: why does cutting up a simple onion sting the eyes and trigger teardrops? The research institute in New Zealand, Crop and Food, used gene-silencing technology to make the breakthrough which it hopes could lead to a prototype onion hitting the market in a decade's time. Colin Eady, the institute's senior scientist, said the...

    GREENVILLE, South Carolina (CNN) — After speaking to an evangelical church on Sunday in this traditionally conservative South Carolina city, Sen. Barack Obama said that Republicans no longer have a firm grip on religion in political discourse. "I think its important particularly for those of us in the Democratic Party to not cede values and faith to any one party," Obama told reporters outside the Redemption World Outreach Center where he attended services. "I think that what you're seeing is a breaking down of the sharp divisions that existed maybe during the nineties, when at least in politics the perception...

An Anglo-American company called Lifeforce has received permission from the US Food and Drug Administration to do just that. The firm collects 480-millilitre samples of blood from healthy individuals, extracts the white blood cells and stores them as an insurance policy against future disease. The service comes at a price,...
  • CA: (Boxer) Bill would create new wilderness ("Padlocking the great outdoors", 2.4M acres worth)

    Conservationists say U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer's plan to designate 2.4 million acres of California mountains as wilderness ---- including areas in San Diego and Riverside counties ---- would preserve a back-country treasure for future generations. But off-road enthusiasts say Boxer's new wilderness bill would lock up that treasure forever so that only a privileged few could use it. California already has one of the nation's most extensive wilderness systems, one that covers more than 14 million acres or 13 percent of its sun-splashed lands. Local examples include the 16,000-acre Agua Tibia Wilderness just north of Palomar Mountain along the San...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Scientists said on Wednesday they have created a distinctive red and yellow butterfly in the laboratory by interbreeding two different species in a way similar to what they believe has occurred in nature. The laboratory hybrid is nearly identical to a wild species of butterfly in Colombia known as Heliconius heurippa. "We recreated the evolutionary steps that may have given rise to Heliconius heurippa, a hybrid butterfly species, in the lab," said Jesus Mavarez, of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Panama City, Panama. Animal hybrids are thought to be very rare because they are less able...

    AL ANBAR, Iraq -- Seabees and soldiers of the 9th Naval Construction Regiment (9th NCR) completed major projects that will directly aid Iraqi Security Forces in their efforts to reinforce security and maintain stability in the area. The goal was to create several security posts in Al Anbar Province. These posts would be manned entirely by the Iraqi Army and would help them to maintain law and order. Constructing these posts would be risky. Prolonged construction periods in this area might endanger construction workers. Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 40 (NMCB 40) decided it would be better to build the base...

    Annoying someone via the Internet is now a federal crime.It's no joke. Last Thursday, President Bush signed into law a prohibition on posting annoying Web messages or sending annoying e-mail messages without disclosing your true identity. In other words, it's OK to flame someone on a mailing list or in a blog as long as you do it under your real name. Thank Congress for small favors, I guess. This ridiculous prohibition, which would likely imperil much of Usenet, is buried in the so-called Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act. Criminal penalties include stiff fines and two...

    CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- Hamlet's father runs a club -- not a kingdom -- and the "sweet prince" drunkenly raps a version of his "To be or not to be" soliloquy in an urban teenage take on the Shakespearean play. Brainstorming ideas for a project promoting nonviolence, the students chose a work in which almost all the main characters are dead by the time the curtain falls. But in their version, Hamlet openly discusses his troubles with his mother and friends, and his murderous uncle ends up in jail instead of dead at Hamlet's hands in a second, "rewind" ending.
