    In what may go down as the apex of #SlatePitches, on Friday, writer Vanessa Vitiello Urquhart investigated a Democratic presidential contender in a story that declares that "Hillary Clinton Isn't a Lesbian - but She Dresses Like One." You know what, fine, let's take the bait. Because by my calculation we will be having these discussions until at least November. After Vitiello Urquhart establishes that this isn't about sexual identity per se, she commends Clinton by explaining, "If Clinton were a lesbian, I'd be proud to claim her fashion sense. Clinton embodies something many lesbians accomplish effortlessly: She dresses in...

    Leading Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson believes that federal and state official overreacted in the case of Terri Schiavo, a Florida woman who died in 2005 as her husband and family battled over whether to keep her alive despite her vegetative state.The case roiled the state of Florida and sparked an emotional national debate about the ethics, politics and spiritual significance of her life and death.(snip)After speaking at a Republican Party conference here on Friday, a reporter asked Carson what he thought of the infamous case -- one that Bush speaks about occasionally as he mounts his own presidential campaign."We...

    A UCLA student burst into tears and launched into a mostly incomprehensible anti-Israel rant on Wednesday after her fellow students voted to defeat a student council resolution aimed at divesting from the Jewish state. UCLAs student council defeated the boycott resolution by a vote of 7 to 5 following an all-night session, according to the blog Legal Insurrection. Following the vote, one of the divestment measures supporters experienced a several-minute emotional breakdown that was caught on tape and uploaded to YouTube. Ive never been more f---ing disappointed than today, the girl wails through tears, as she shivers and rolls back...

    As Breitbart News reportedon December 1, EPA regulations led to the closing of the Herculaneam lead smelter in Herculaneum, Missouri, which is expected to push up prices for traditional lead ammo. On top of this are regulations like the recent statewide lead ammo ban in California.Signed by Governor Jerry Brown (D) on October 11, this ban forces hunters to seek out nontraditional alternatives for their ammunition. In this way, the ban mandates "green bullets" by default. Moreover,as Fox News reports, the military has set 2018 as its target date to have troops operating lead-ammo-free. "Green bullets" have been under testing...

    NOAA Warns of Monster Solar Storm Region Facing Earth for Next Two Weeks; Fully Capable of Producing X-Class Flares Mac Slavo November 8th, 2011 Last Thursday the sun produced an X1.9 rated solar flare that narrowly missed Earth. Although it wasnt aimed directly at us, about 45 minutes after leaving the sun it was still powerful enough to disrupt radio communications. Now, that same area responsible for producing the X-class flare may pose a direct threat to Earth. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center says that the region on the sun known as AR11339 and...

    The CRIIRAD institute went on a mission in Japan from May 24th to June 3rd, 2011. The present document gives account of the findings from the first analysis results. The radioactive cesium deposits on the soils have been of great magnitude. They generate, and will continue to do so for a long time to come, a flux of gamma radiation causing the irradiation of populations in widespread areas. Due to this external exposure and in the absence of protective measures, several hundreds of thousands of people will receive radiation doses far above the limit of 1 mSv/year. Must be added,...

    No sooner had Democrats captured one House, than President Bush began cleaning another. First on the presidential chopping block was Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who will now step aside in favor of former CIA director Robert Gates. The presidents new choice is a foreign policy realist who believes Iran could play a potentially significant role in promoting a stable, pluralistic government in Baghdad. Rumsfelds strong support for the war effort has made him enemy number one for Democrats Nancy Pelosi, in her inaugural act as House speaker, demanded a change in the civilian leadership of the Pentagon and...

    With virtually no mention in the mainstream media, Commerce Secretary Carlos M. Gutierrez convened on June 15, the first meeting of the North American Competitiveness Council (NACC), an apparently extra-constitutional advisory group organized by the Department of Commerce (DOC) under the auspices of the Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP). A March 31 press release on the White House website, under the title Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America: Progress, announced the formation of the NACC. The press release noted that the NACC would meet annually with security and prosperity Ministers and will engage with senior government officials on an...

    Imagine yourself in the stands at the Kentucky Derby. A new horse by the name of President's Choice, a strong thoroughbred that racing aficionados have been talking about, is favored to win. "And they're off!" Now imagine everyone's shock when the gates fly open and the odds-on favorite starts running the wrong way. We saw something similar last night. Samuel Alito, the "conservative" judicial nominee over whom all good little Republicans were drooling, cast his first vote as the nation's newest black-robed oligarch. This morning's edition of the Washington Post reported: "New Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito split with the...

    When I entered college in 1969, women were bursting out of theirs 50's chrysalis, shedding girdles, padded bras and conventions. The Jazz Age spirit flared in the Age of Aquarius. Women were once again imitating men and acting all independent: smoking, drinking, wanting to earn money and thinking they had the right to be sexual, this time protected by the pill. I didn't fit in with the brazen new world of hard-charging feminists. I was more of a fun-loving (if chaste) type who would decades later come to life in Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw. I hated the grubby, unisex...

    Are you being targeted for euthanasia? By Mary Therese Helmueller, R.N. In 1984, while working as charge nurse in the intensive care unit, a 20-year-old man asked, Can you give my mother enough morphine to let her sleep away? I was horrified. I can not kill your mother, I responded. That was only the beginning. Recently, an 80-year-old was admitted to the emergency room and the physician said, LETS DEHYDRATE HER; one more patient was sentenced to die in hospice with NO TERMINAL DIAGNOSIS and once again, THE LIVING WILL determined the death of a 70-year-old man regardless of how...

    After the horrific loss of life in the Indian Ocean region from the record earthquake and resulting tsunami last week, I was struck by the immensity of what had happened. While scientists continue to argue over whether we can even measure mankind's influence on weather or climate in the face of naturally occurring hurricanes, tornadoes, heat waves, cold waves, blizzards, and floods, Mother Nature shows us that she still rules the day. There is no question that the Earth knows that humans live here -- six billion people are going to have some effect on the environment, no matter how...

Apparently, whatever it wants, from the White House and from Congress. While the NRA hasn't actually installed a desk next to the president's, the gun lobby is enjoying great success in Washington -- even when its proposals might aid criminals and criminally negligent dealers. One NRA-backed measure was tacked onto an omnibus spending bill passed by Congress last month....

    President Bush's proposal to give temporary legal status to millions of undocumented immigrants is running into stiff resistance from both left and right on Capitol Hill and stands little chance of enactment this year, according to supporters and opponents. While this assessment is based on early responses, with the lobbying effort barely begun, some lawmakers say the measure's only chance of passage this year would require an all-out push by the president, and even that might not be enough.
