  • Senator Franken Voted Against Ambassador Friedman for Calling Him a "Clown" and a "Moron"

    Sometimes truth really is the best defense. All but two Democrats sided with J Street over Israel and voted against the confirmation of Ambassador Friedman. Republicans stood with the Jewish pro-Israel community. J Street lost. Jews and supporters of Israel won. Of the Senate Dems who spoke against Friedman, all but one were recipients of sizable amounts of J Street money. J Street is the anti-Israel pressure group set up by George Soros. Schatz, Udall, Van Hollen and Leahy had all gotten cash from J Street. Al Franken had not. But he had a better grievance against Ambassador Friedman. "Mr....

    Maxine Waters is continuing to bang the drums of impeachment, even though she has yet to accuse President Trump of breaking the law. But her statement today on the topic may be the most embarrassingly ridiculous yet.(snip) Waters continued, “And the fact that he is wrapping his arms around Putin while Putin is continuing to advance into Korea.”

    Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D) was invited Tuesday, along with fellow members of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, to test drive — er, test ride — a driverless car on the Capitol grounds. Well, the ride never happened, because Norton did a particularly good job of testing the car’s bright-red “kill” button — which, as captured by WRC-TV’s cameras, killed the car to the point that it could not proceed with the test ride. “Oh, no, don’t push it!” an engineer from Carnegie Mellon University cried after Norton pounded the mushroom button. “It shuts everything down.” [...]

    Rumors of Aggie mischief circulate as maroon bluebonnets pop up on University of Texas campus By ANDREA SALAZAR andrea.salazar@theeagle.com | Posted 4 days ago The land of burnt orange has received some unwanted maroon in the form of the state flower. Maroon bluebonnets have popped up in flower beds outside the University of Texas Tower, causing enough student reaction to prompt groundskeepers to remove the seeds, said Markus Hogue, program coordinator of irrigation and water conservation at UT. Rumor has it that an Aggie is behind it. After all, the only place on campus that has bloomed the Aggie-cultivated maroon...

    Vice President Joe Biden implored Americans on Monday to find the resources to invest in its ports, warning the U.S. will fall behind its competitors unless it spends now to bolster its infrastructure. Addressing a crowd of about 300 on a wind-swept dock in Charleston, S.C., Biden said the United States is behind the rest of the world.

    On the talk radio show, "Nightside With Dan Rea," Coakley labels Rudy Giuliani as a Yankee fan, then goes on to bizarrely describe Brown supporter Curt Schilling, the great former Red Sox pitcher, as a Yankee fan as well. Hear the audio here: Link For those who don't know who Curt Schilling is, he is a famous Red Sox pitcher. This woman seem intent on insulting Mass citizens.

    Gun owners insist that they need to carry a concealed weapon that is handguns for self-protection from criminals. Now that is saying that it is not safe for anyone to walk/drive to work at anytime of the day or night without fear of being attacked, robbed, raped, murdered for money etc. I am told that you cannot make any enemies in the United States for fear of being shot. In addition, that the only way of preventing this is to carry with you, a handgun of one form or another. I am also told that a well arm society is...

    A few years back, a relative was visiting from out of town and showed us a snapshot. It was his son posing with a new acquaintance. Big smiles all around. The acquaintance was a priest. And he was black. Why carry around this otherwise unremarkable photo and make a show of it? Because the son is a five-alarm racist, and so is his dad -- the guy proudly displaying the snapshot. The subtext here -- about one micron below the surface -- was: "See? A black friend!"

    As cousins Travis and Chuckie Jones stroll off the South Broward High campus on school days, they're "gooned out." Wearing oversized T-shirts and low-riding jeans, they mimic the hard core look that gangsta rappers first popularized in the 1990s. The Jones boys' jean shorts, held up by belts, are hanging around their thighs and sag so low that you can't help but see the gym shorts they wear underneath. "I like saggin'," said Travis, a 15-year-old sophomore. For him, wearing baggy, ill-fitting jeans, is cool — and makes a strong statement. It's all about attitude. "It tells everybody to kiss...

    (The Whole of Life Explained in 7000 Words)Life and death Life is fleeting. We are only here for a moment, we emerge out of nothing, we shine for an instant in a burst of energy and motion, and then we vanish. What possessions we have acquired pass into other hands and then, eventually, cease themselves to exist. What is the purpose of this brief flash that is life? What, in fact, is life? There are two basic forces at work in the universe. There is a force sometimes referred to as entropy, the process by which all things decay and...
  • The Buffoon Caucus ( Rep. Maxine Waters - Remove U.S. Troops in Iraq by August of 1980)

    At one press conference, Rep. Maxine Waters, now serving her 9th term in the House of Representatives, declared that under the Out of Iraq Caucus's plan, the United States could remove U.S. troops from Iraq "by August of 1980 [sic."] Then, Rep. Jan Schakowsky of Illinois, reasoning that 1980 had already taken place, said the actual date was August 2008. Rep. Lloyd Doggett suggested that Mr. Bush, "the misleader," was to blame for his colleagues' confusion. Rep. Lynn Woolsey, California Democrat, tried to explain the caucus plan, but stumbled over the chronology of the withdrawal, saying at one point that...

    One look at you tells me all I need to know about you. I am so tired of liberals that think they are so brilliant. You are such a stupid jackass. You are so stupid you probably believe that the Bush administration orchestrated the attacks on 9/11. Every time you go on the internet, every time you make a bank transaction, or pay a bill, every time you try to email a congressman or senator they are getting so much information off of you. Of course it is all a conspiracy by the Bush administration. I have screwed around by...

    On NBC's "Meet the Press" last Sunday, Rep. John Murtha repeated his call for "redeploying" U.S. troops from Iraq with something new -- and disturbing to fellow Democrats. Asked by moderator Tim Russert about sites for redeployment, Murtha replied: "We can go to Okinawa. ... We can redeploy there almost instantly." When Russert expressed doubt about "a timely response" from Okinawa to meet a Middle East crisis, the 16-term congressman from western Pennsylvania and new national security spokesman for his party stumbled: "Well, it -- you know, they -- when I say Okinawa, I, I'm saying troops in Okinawa.

    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...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. 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. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...

    Thibodaux, Louisiana (AHN) - A Louisiana woman now faces charges after calling 911 to complain that her onion rings were cold. She summoned police to the Malt-N-Burger Wednesday night where officers arrested her. 30-year-old Sharita Williams was irate over the temperature of her food, the Thibodauz Daily Comet reported. Williams told police the food was cold when she received it and the attendant refused to replace it with a new order, the report says. At that point, Williams dialed 911. She was arrested and issued a summons for misuse of the 911 system. She was released and given a December...
