    TUSCON, Ariz ( KTLA) -- Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged Tucson gunman, was described Saturday as a politically radical loner. Now an internet trail emerged in which he apparently railed against the US government and told friends: "Please don't be mad at me". There are unconfirmed reports that 22 year old Jared Lee Loughner once met with Rep. Giffords in 2007. A former high school friend said that he had often talked about meeting and talking with the congresswoman. Arizona court records show Loughner has twice been charged with previous offenses. The first, in October 2007, related to the possession...

    "The Communist Manifesto" and Hitler's "Mein Kampf" were among the favorite reading materials of Jared Lee Loughner, the suspected gunmen in today's fatal shooting that reportedly left six dead and gravely injured a U.S. congresswoman. Lougher, 22, listed those tomes among his favorites on his YouTube channel, in which he wrote that "conscience dreams" were a "great study" at his college, Pima Community College. One user on Twitter, Caitie Parker, wrote she went to high school, college and was in a band with the gunman. She said she hadn't seen him since 2007. Parker wrote of Lougher, "As I knew...

    If you would like to believe that some people in Hollywood are sane then don’t look to the cast of Mad Men. The popular cable show has at least one guy who basically thinks having children is irresponsible and hurts the environment. He hopes the rest of us will learn to live as responsibly as him. Mad Men’s Vincent Kartheiser did an interview this week with MSNBC’s Tamron Hall to talk about how to go green. The progressive network thought the actor was qualified to interview, because he’s insanely green in his personal life. The guy has no car, thinks...

    A recently released propaganda video by the Islamic extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir is quite revealing. Not only does the video demonstrate the group’s growing effort to package arguments in a manner designed to appeal to Westerners on the political left, but it also serves as a barometer of radical Muslim groups’ broader shift in rhetorical strategy. The video, “Iraq: Past and Present Colonialism,” appears for the first twenty-seven minutes to be a standard leftist critique of the Iraq war, indistinguishable from Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11. The slickly-produced video begins with the history of past colonialism in Iraq—including the Mongol conquest...

    SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- A California non-profit is urging sponsors to pull their ads from Fox News Channel, because of "a would-be assassin inspired by" Fox personality Glenn Beck. The Tides Foundation, which says it promotes human rights, justice, and a healthy, sustainable environment, has come in for frequent criticism on Beck's show. A suspect in a July 28 shootout with police, Byron Williams, told police in an affidavit he had intended to go to the Tides Foundation's office in San Francisco and kill founder and Chief Executive Officer Drummond Pike.

    Two top California legislators are coming under fire after new evidence has emerged that they helped a group of radical antiwar activists cross the Iraqi-Jordanian border in order to deliver aid to families of enemy insurgents in the war-ridden Iraqi city of Fallujah. In December 2004, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) and Rep. Henry Waxman (D) each sent letters of diplomatic courtesy to the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, requesting assistance for members of the radical group Global Exchange and the antiwar group Palisadians for Peace. The letters, according to a January 4, 2005 article written by Islam Online correspondent Adam...

    The commission appointed by President Obama to investigate the Gulf oil spill (the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling) does not include a single member with specialized knowledge of petroleum engineering. This is akin to performing a heart transplant with a surgical team that has never set foot in an operating room. Of the seven members appointed to the commission, not one is a petroleum engineer, and all have long-standing ties to the environmental movement. This is certainly the case with Frances Beinecke, Donald Boesch, Terry Garcia, and Frances Ulmer, all of whom have...

He made the comments Thursday night on The Young Turks, an Internet and satellite radio talk show.

With The Oprah Winfrey Show preparing to sunset next year, O’Donnell is hoping to launch a new yakker that could conceivably fill the bill in the fall of 2011. Dick Robertson, the former head of syndication of Warner Bros.

Robertson and Carlin worked closely with O'Donnell on her first...

Dismiss supporters of current policy and ignore their arguments. Pretend they don't exist and act as though there is absolutely no problem whatsoever with gays serving as gays.

That was the year that saw the worldwide financial meltdown, leading to the collapse of real estate markets, banks and other businesses and necessitating the biggest bailout since the Ark took on water. Even though it has seemed like 2008's crisis, 2009 actually brought the end to that economic crunch, or at least brought its end into sight (depending which economists you want to listen to.)

    As I recall, during implementation of the previous administration's strategies in the War on Terror, members of the far left bleated their resentment toward those who questioned their patriotism. Given the left's pathetic deportment in response to terrorism, and reckless sympathetic tendencies where terrorists were concerned, they had come under criticism of the more circumspect among us. Still, they claimed that their dovishness, objection to such measures as the Patriot Act and support of sanctuary city statutes didn't make them any less patriotic than anyone else, damn it.

From the design of the computers, to their strengths and weaknesses, the sweeping contrasts between the two are enormous but sometimes it's the smallest variations that are the most telling of the them all. For example, have you ever taken a good look at something as simple their desktops? There's the recent addition of the Dock and obvious graphic subtleties but one thing, although noticeable, that barely seems to...

    Dick Durbin, you spoilsport. The state's senior U.S. senator may (or may not) have made a wise decision to forego hosting health care town halls in his home state, but in any case he's denying us of a spectacle we deserve. After all, who isn't dying to see how a relatively close, personal friend of the president (and the No. 2 man in the Senate as Harry Reid's assistant majority leader) would handle the (planted or not) mobs that would turn out to shout him down? Some of those mobs may even be made up of liberals, now that Durbin...

    Scary how a lot of bitter McCain backers oppose Obama at every turn Comments BY Opening shot . . . At any given moment, 40 percent of Americans are dead wrong. Four out of 10 colonists would have happily remained under British rule -- some even fought on the side of the Redcoats. Forty percent of the country -- if not more -- were content with the Nazis overrunning Europe and would have never considered taking up arms against Hitler had not the Japanese attacked us and the Germans -- unwisely, as it turned out -- joined them in declaring...

    In case you haven't heard, President Obama is a member of a secret Kenyan terrorist cell who is scheming to dispatch waves of government bureaucrats to tell grandmas and grandpas how to off themselves. Such is the intellectual weight of a segment of the Republican Party these days. Or as one commentator recently put it, the GOP has decided "to double down on crazy." We're talking about two controversies here, one involving the so-called birther movement, which questions the citizenship of the president; the other involving mandatory "end-of-life" counseling that's supposedly part of the president's health care plan. The controversies...

    Some speculate that left-handedness was repressed during the late 1800s and early 1900s, that it was seen as an abnormality and a hindrance to getting manual labor done in a timely fashion. Today, it is much more accepted and sometimes even coveted as studies show that the left-handed population tends to produce a higher percentage of overachievers and that left-handed men tend to be richer than their right-handed counterparts. And in many sports, polo notwithstanding, left-handedness is a distinct advantage. Look how much closer the left-handed batter is to first base. Researcher Alan Searleman recently wrote that, in general, southpaws...

In 1999, he appeared at the United Nations to accept the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award from the World Federalists Association.

    If you thought yesterday's DUFU EDITION, in which the DUmmies expressed deep disappointment with the Bamster, was an oddity you would be wrong. Right now DUmmieland is chock full of disappointment in The One as you can see in the very title of this THREAD, "Obama's promise of a new beginning now hollow." And the main reason for this disillusionment centers on health care. Yeah, there will probably be some sort of meaningless health care bill with a feel good theme such as RESOLVED: Adequate health care is a good thing. It would have just as much actual effect...
