Some historians say the departure of two million Britons in a decade is almost unparalleled in the country's history The Office for National Statistics (ONS) will release figures showing that more than 200,000 Britons emigrated during 2006. That will take the total number who left the country between 1997 and 2006 to 1.97 million. Another 1.58 million foreign...

    [Placed in the public domain, copying and widespread circulation are encouraged] Obama’s Sword of Damocles: October Surprise Won’t Surprise UsLooming Scandal Will “Toricelli” Barack Obama After Democratic National ConventionThe Democratic Party’s superdelegates, even those who have endorsed Barack Obama, need to do some serious reconsideration between now and the convention. Should Obama become the nominee, the Democrats are likely to find themselves in the same situation as they did with Robert Toricelli (D-NJ) in 2002. As described by Wikipedia (more information at the Washington Post http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A20602-2001May12), In the middle of an increasingly competitive race against Republican Doug Forrester, Torricelli decided...

    Upright Walking Began 6 Million Years Ago Newswise — A shape comparison of the most complete fossil femur (thigh bone) of one of the earliest known pre-humans, or hominins, with the femora of living apes, modern humans and other fossils, indicates the earliest form of bipedalism occurred at least six million years ago and persisted for at least four million years. William Jungers, Ph.D., of Stony Brook University, and Brian Richmond, Ph.D., of George Washington University, say their finding indicates that the fossil belongs to very early human ancestors, and that upright walking is one of the first human characteristics...

    Last Sunday's Million Mom March, the gun-control protest organized (as the major media is finally admitting) by the sister-in-law of Hillary Clinton's longtime lawyer pal and hatchet woman, surly Susan Thomases, may not do the Democrats much good this year. ...It doesn't take a weatherman to figure out that the average citizen doesn't want national policy determined by packs of weeping women led by a shrill, dimwitted talk-show host (Hillary sycophant Rosie O'Donnell).

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Citigroup Inc , the largest bank in the United States, said on Thursday that its former Chairman and Chief Executive, Charles Prince, will take home roughly $40 million as he retires from the company.

The terms of Prince's retirement include the vesting of options estimated to be worth $1.28 million, the vesting of deferred stock estimated to be worth $16.05 million and the vesting of restricted shares worth...

    Clinton-backed group diverted tax exempt money to political campaigns, filed questionable tax return The anti-Second Amendment Million Mom March is yet another example of Creative Clinton Campaign financing, with 501(c)(3) tax exempt money being redirected for political campaign and electioneering purposes. Not only did the organization use tax deductible money to support the election campaigns of Al Gore and other candidates, it filed a very creative Form 990 tax return for the year in question. Hillary Clinton was closely involved in orchestrating the Million Mom March, and its questionable activities reflect very strongly on her personal character and integrity. For...

    Ancient glacier creatures brought back to life By Roger Highfield, Science Editor Last Updated: 8:35pm BST 06/08/2007 Creatures that once lived eight million years ago have been successfully thawed from the ice of an Antarctic glacier, in an experiment that sounds like a scene from a science fiction film. The feat of revival was managed with as yet unidentified single-celled microbes and should pose no health issues, say the scientists. However, it does show that evolution of simpler organisms is complicated by thawing glaciers which allow ancient bugs to contribute their old genes to modern populations. The finding is significant,...

    Noting that today is July 4, we thought it might be instructive to show how the Million Mom March (the brainchild of Hillary Clinton's friend Donna Dees-Thomases, with considerable backing from Hillary Clinton) displays the American flag. This picture was on the Million Mom March's home page shortly after the Mother's Day rally in 2000. According to the four adult Million Mom Marchers in the picture, the photographer who took the picture, and the Webmaster who posted it, this is how Hillary Clinton's friends think our country's flag should be displayed. Res ipsa loquitur, the thing speaks for itself.

    While troubled experts worldwide ponder the question of how to persuade more people to vote, the American state of Arizona may have discovered an answer. How does a million dollars sound? That is the sum that one Arizona voter, chosen at random, would receive in every general election under a proposal suggested by Mark Osterloh, a former Democratic candidate for governor. Now that Mr Osterloh has collected more than 122,000 signatures in support of the idea, voters will automatically have the chance to accept or reject it in November's mid-term elections. The Arizona Voter Reward Act - for which Mr...
