    (CNN) -- Five young men died Saturday when the car they were in drove off the end of a private airstrip near Ocala, Florida, became airborne for 200 feet and slammed into an oak tree, authorities said. "This had to be the worst vehicle crash that I have ever seen during my career," said Randy Robinson, a spokesman for the Emergency Medical Services Alliance with 27 years on the job. The 2008 BMW was split in two in the wreck, which happened at 3:45 a.m., said Lt. Mike Burroughs, a spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol Troop B. He told...

    The economy's growth has never before been so driven by real estate. Now that engine is sputtering. Jiany Massad isn't quite ready to throw in the towel on his fledgling career as a Miami real-estate tycoon. But if the local housing market continues to head south, the 30-year-old real-estate broker is already making alternate plans. "I might restart my old business," he says of a home decorating company that specialized in high-end window treatments. "At least it's real-estate-related." With home sales down by nearly a third in Florida last quarter, thousands of those who hoped to cash in on the...
  • The Difference Between Religion And Christianity In America

    When Jesus was living, he did not align himself with the Jewish religious parties, then called Saducees and Pharisees, nor the secular authorities: King Herod and Rome. He obeyed the Mosaic law and even paid tribute. He told Nicodemus, an old man that he had to be born again to be saved. Jesus meant born spiritually. Jesus preached that this spiritual new baby would be then, dead to the world, living in the world but not of it. He pointed out that worrying about the future was not what a Christian would be doing because tomorrow has enough worries to...

    It seems our government has decided to take down the SPP Website in recent days. Is it a coincidence that it was taken down around the time Jerome Corsi published this article titled North American Union to Replace USA? on the Human Events Online website??

    Executive Summary Government prohibition of marijuana is the subject of ongoing debate. One issue in this debate is the effect of marijuana prohibition on government budgets. Prohibition entails direct enforcement costs and prevents taxation of marijuana production and sale. This report examines the budgetary implications of legalizing marijuana – taxing and regulating it like other goods – in all fifty states and at the federal level. The report estimates that legalizing marijuana would save $7.7 billion per year in government expenditure on enforcement of prohibition. $5.3 billion of this savings would accrue to state and local governments, while $2.4 billion...

    You may not understand now what I am going to say, which has to do with separation from, and separation of, family. But you very well will understand in your own time.

She is a flaming Lib who loves the Democrats and is always saying I must do more for society. I have been doing more for society. My 1992 Grand Marquis with no muffler is off the road so I am...

    The Denver Post CU death blamed on alcohol By Jim Hughes Denver Post Staff Writer Tuesday, October 05, 2004 - University of Colorado freshman Lynn "Gordie" Bailey died from acute alcohol poisoning with a blood-alcohol level of 0.328 percent, the Boulder County coroner's office announced Monday.

There were no other drugs in Bailey's system, according to coroner Tom Faure, who has ruled the death an accident. Faure's findings "speak for themselves," said Bailey's mother, Leslie Lanahan.

    How Bush and the Truth defeat CBS and The Washington Monthly CBS’s “Rat” has to eat his own “tale” but Washington Monthly’s Joshua cant “Marshall” the courage to admit defeat. While the CBS anchorman Dan “Rat” Rather is forced to say sorry the Washington Monthly’s Joshua Marshall just cant bring himself to admit defeat. CBS’s attempt to smear the President was scuppered and the “Rat” publicly admitted that “we made a mistake in judgment, and for that I’m sorry”. So the “rat” made an “ass” of himself, well it happens from time to time when your objective is a smear...

    Md. (AP) - The 21-year-old son of former Vice President Al Gore must complete substance abuse counseling as part of a pretrial diversion program to settle a marijuana possession charge. The agreement approved by a judge Monday calls for the misdemeanor charge to be dropped after a year if Albert Gore III submits to urine testing, community service and counseling, and steers clear of criminal convictions. The younger Gore, who attends Harvard University, had no comment after the brief hearing. He was accompanied by his mother, Tipper Gore, who did not comment other than saying the issue was a ``private...
