    Charleston , Kanawha County , West Virginia While U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller's supporters were listening to his celebration at the Civic Center Saturday, another Democratic leader was being protested outside. The Citizens Defense League gathered to protest U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin. The group is the state’s largest pro-gun lobbying group, and advocates for lawful hunting and to keep and bear arms for self-defense. Lately, they've been upset with the decisions Manchin has made when it comes to guns and the federal government in general. "We made a promise to him, that if he continued to push for gun control legislation...

    DreamWorks Studios announced today that they are in the final stages of salary negotiations with Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank for their new Looney Tunes Bugs Bunny movie. Frank is slated to play Elmer Fudd in the five hundred million dollar, two part, six hour movie epic. The Congressman expressed interest in the role when he heard that Bugs Bunny was going to be played by an actor who has expressed conservative political views in the past. We talked with Congressman Frank over brunch in the West Village where he was visiting a friend. “It was wight before our summer wecess,”...

    People talk about wanting to get the money out of politics, but fundraising totals can tell us a lot about who's hitting their stride and who will soon be hitting the bench. We are now within striking distance of November 2, so much so that Muse’s “Uprising” is my ringtone. “Rise up and take the power back/It’s time the fat cats had a heart attack … .”As we get down to the wire, polls matter, block walks matter, enthusiasm matters — and money matters. In fact, money tells us a lot about the health of a candidate and where he...

    THERE IS A bit of a rift going on in the outdoor sporting world between hunters and gun enthusiasts, which sometimes are one in the same. The raucousness started when longtime outdoors writer Jim Zumbo of Outdoor Life magazine posted a story online that said assault rifles -- he also called them terrorist rifles -- had no place in the hunting community, even suggesting that game departments ban them from the prairies and woods. According to The Shooting Wire web site, he tried to apologize, attributing his remarks to being tired following a long day of hunting coyotes in extreme...

    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. The illegal aliens who are now so demanding, and who are now being given their demands. and for that reason will now demand much, much more - indeed everything, from you - they talk about how those who want to have the most basic laws, perhaps people like you who want the most basic laws because you want to protect your family, well, people like you are told...

    I guess I’m sort of glad that the mullahs from Iran have finally outed Tom and Jerry and the real meaning behind their intrepid hijinx, dialogue and Jerry’s episodic escapes from Tom’s sadistic clutches.

    Boy Who Cooked Animals At School Will Not Be Charged Teen Cooked Guinea Pig, Rabbit During Class UPDATED: 2:39 PM EST January 28, 2005 THOMPSON, Ohio -- Police and humane society officials decided not to file charges against a 16-year-old student who skinned and cooked a Guinea pig and a rabbit during a living skills class. They said Thursday it would have been hard to prove the killings were unnecessary because students did eat some of the meat, and investigators didn't find evidence the animals suffered needlessly. Authorities said the student killed the rabbit with a bow-and-arrow and used a...
