    This describes Democrats and Republicans (note: NOT conservatives) pretty well, the only modification would be adding "useful" to the end of the sentence.

Found some flex-fuel trucks (mostly on the GM site), but only top of the line, with large engines. Will US automakers drop THIS ball also?

    By far, the most terrifying film you'll ever see. It will shake you to your core. A film that has shocked audiences everywhere they've seen it.

For it turns out that the most terrifying movie of the summer -- the film that has audiences on the edge of their seats, gripping their popcorn tubs in panic and grabbing on to their dates -- is a documentary on the perils of...

    Me | Today | Dan Pride
    I am curious why none of the media covers the most important aspect of the Malvo shootings. If you look at Newspapers on the dates when the shootings are underway you discover something I find quite interesting. The shootings begin to dominate the news the day before the debate on the Iraq war starts and they catch them the day after the declaration of war??? If you ask most people "do you remember the debate about starting the second Iraq war", they will all answer "yes of course". But if you followup with the question "name one point in the...

    Dull Hillary stumbles and the memory of Bill lingers on By Francis Harris in Washington (Filed: 24/05/2006) Hillary Clinton may be the Democratic front-runner for the presidency but she seems to have a lot to learn about campaigning for the White House. In a weighty speech to journalists at the National Press Club in Washington yesterday, the senator squandered an opportunity to shine before a critically important audience - the journalists who will present her to the public if, as expected, she declares her candidacy for the 2008 nomination. It began well enough. Resplendent in a lemon yellow two-piece and...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals.

    Lobster. The Journal of Parapolitics ^ | 10/29/05 | Peter Dale Scott
    Concluding Question: The Meta-Group and the United States Government It seems clear that the meta-group, with its influential connections on at least three continents, was powerful enough to effect changes, through the Russian 9/11, in Russian history. The question arises whether they could similarly effect changes in American history as well. As we have seen Russian sources claim that the U.S. Government has had access to he meta-group, for such especially sensitive projects as the assassination of Abu al Walid al-Hamadi. They claim the meta-group's involvement in a number of U.S.-sponsored regime changes in eastern Europe, from the overthrow of...

    04/05/2005 10:50:57 AM PDT · by Sammy sam · 153 replies · 8,234+ views
    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...

Why want he? Do you know? Is there sombody we can call? Plaese advice.

Speaking at a luncheon sponsored by the Sacramento Press Club, the Oakland Democrat also said he believes an FBI investigation into his family and political friends has no merit and was spawned by political enemies as he successfully ran for the top Senate job last year.

    The meeting in Beantown was listed as the Democratic party convention. However, the number of media and gunslingers far exceeded the amount of convention delegates attending. The gunslingers could be pacified with a doughnut or two a day. Not so with the scribbling set. Reporters tend to get a little testy if they are not provided comfort, free food, booze, and bathrooms -- usually in that order. But, the DNC didn't deliver. First, most media people had to go through security lines. Then, to save a few bucks, the DNC skimped on toilets for the media. On top of that,...

    LOUIS XVI’s diary entry for 14 July, 1789, consisted of a single word: "Nothing". To be fair to Louis, he used his diary almost exclusively for recording his hunting exploits, so no kill meant nothing of note had happened, however many pike-wielding peasants were dismantling his kingdom as he wrote. Nevertheless, I can’t help feeling that here was an opportunity missed. If only Louis could have slipped a quick "Ooh! Bad news from Paris, or what?" into the long list of "nothings" (he wasn’t a terribly successful hunter) he might have gained a few more fans - posthumously, at least....

    The main factors appear to suggest that he shouldn't pick anyone who might tend to overshadow him and it should be someone who would tend to make him appear more moderate but also someone he would feel comfortable with politically. Right away we have to dismiss the two most glaringly obvious candidates, Kim Il Sung jr and Mullah Omar since, I believe, they're not US citizens. Michael Moore has been mentioned since he would mirror Kerry's views on Iraq and help tremendously with the leftist fat slob voter but reportedly he has turned down the offer and will only accept...
