    So, I’m sitting in my local diner staring at a pair of gorgeous breasts that are hovering over my husband’s face as the twenty year old waitress takes our lunch order. She purrs, “Ready?” I think she just winked at him. He pretends not to notice. I am in the middle of a good story about my wonderful, recent trip to the AZ Freedom Rally II. After an eternity, the gorgeous, young boobs leave and I resume my tale, ” …the greatest thing about this crucial moment in history is the fact that I am meeting the greatest people on...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) – US President Barack Obama laid a key plank of his strategy to mend ties with the Islamic world on Monday hosting a summit to boost economic development in Muslim nations. In a step the White House hopes will help shift relations beyond decades of talk about terrorism and conflict, Obama brought entrepreneurs from 50 countries to Washington for two days to spur economic ties. The president pledged to host the meeting in a landmark speech in Cairo last June, when he also called for a "new beginning" to relations between the United States and the Muslim world....

    (IsraelNN.com) A United States-based organization's conference on breast cancer awareness, to be hosted in Egypt, has been touted by international news networks as an example of “unprecedented cooperation” in the region. However, according to Channel 2 news, the celebration of unity may be premature, as Israeli doctors were told at the last minute that their invitations to participate had been rescinded.

    Web site advertising is often reasonable, and it is the way that many sites earn enough money to deliver their content. ...There are unfortunately advertisers that abuse the privilege of access to people’s computers by pushing ads–usually Shockwave Flash–with excessive bandwidth utilization that slows even DSL Internet connections noticeably. (We banned Doubleclick.net from our computer eight or nine years ago, when we were still using a dial-up connection, because it kept refreshing its banner ads.) Other ads superimpose themselves over the page content, and have no button on which to click to close them. Still others vibrate or jiggle back...

    "The YouTube/CNN Democratic Presidential Debate showed why we can’t have any of the Democrats be elected president. What a crew! They make the famous bar scene in Star Wars look main-stream! An idea: what if Talk Radio hosts around the country banned together and held a Talk Radio GOP Presidential Debate this fall - to be simulcast on dozens of talk radio shows and stations around the country - with questions coming over the phone like any other talk radio show? And if some TV network wanted to simulcast it, that’s fine. But the main thrust is the vast talk...

    Texan hosts arm against crime wave By Philip Sherwell in Houston (Filed: 27/08/2006) Hurricane Katrina may not have pounded Houston, but a year later the city is reeling from an ugly aftermath of the storm - a surging crime wave. The murder rate in the Texan city has soared by almost 20 per cent since 150,000 Katrina evacuees arrived in August last year. According to police statistics, they are involved - as victim or killer - in one of every five homicides. In the gun stores and on the shooting ranges of America's oil industry capital, business is booming as...

    House Republicans, speaking Wednesday at a field hearing aimed at exposing flaws in rival Senate legislation, said illegal immigrants cost taxpayers by straining government services. Democrats said GOP leaders were stalling to avoid a bruising fight within their party over a sweeping immigration overhaul before November midterm elections. The House Judiciary Committee met at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in what Republicans billed as a hearing to examine "the tremendous burden" that Senate legislation would impose on taxpayers to pay for health care, education and other services. About 100 people attended the 90-minute hearing. "If we do not control the...

More than 20 teams from Europe and the United States are gearing up for the Nuon Solar Challenge, a contest to build and race a solar-powered boat. While a similar competition is held on land in Australia under a blazing sun, these contestants have built crafts to navigate the lakes, rivers, and creeks in the far northwest of the Netherlands, where thunderstorms are common. It would take a minor miracle for clear skies to prevail for the duration of the race, which runs from Monday to July 1....
