    Amnesty: Hating the Sin; Loving the Sinner I have written about “The Party of Death (Democrats) vs. The Party of Slow Suicide (Republicans)”. But the GOP seems hell bent on speeding up the process via President Bush’s de facto Amnesty for illegals proposal. The question is, What to do about it? Let’s face it: the President essentially inherited a security, cultural, and economic mess -- millions of illegal aliens floating around in America. His predecessors essentially looked the other way while illegals ran roughshod over our nation. But George W. Bush’s biggest political problem in this election season is not...

    USAID Undercuts U.S. Global HIV/AIDS Initiative   This May, President Bush signed into law the Global HIV/AIDS bill (HR 1298). Over the course of the next few years, $15 billion will be spent on new programs designed to curb the spread of HIV/AIDS, and to provide life-extending care to millions infected with the disease. The law mandates that 55% of the overall funding will go for basic medicaltreatment. Even more importantly, 33% of the overall prevention funding must go to abstinence programs. No money would go to groups that advocate the legalization of prostitution. Oversight of the U.N. Global Fund...

    A group of 3 Dutch private citizens has formed an internationalist website called The World Votes to register worldwide choices in the 2004 Presidential Elections. This is an obvious attempt to highlight the unpopularity of President Bush among the America-hating, envious, statist citizens of the UN-worshipping world. As election day draws closer, expect these clowns to be featured on important news stories worldwide in an effort to influence public opinion in the United States. They are hoping to show that voting for Bush is an extremely unfavorable choice among the "world citizens", thereby dissuading the US citizens from voting for...

Bush re-elected next year, and fear US troops will be drawn into a long, costly occupation of Iraq, according to a Newsweek poll.

Only 23 percent said terrorism and homeland security would be the most important issues for them in the November 2004...

    What is a filibuster? Why are they permitted in the Senate but not the House? Can you do anything to stop one? I have heard the practice of "talking a bill to death" in the Senate referred to as a filibuster. What exactly is a filibuster? Why do they happen only in the Senate? What is the purpose of allowing them? Can one Senator actually stop the entire Senate through a filibuster or is there something that can be done to bring one to an end? The word filibuster comes from the Spanish word filibusteros; a term used to describe...

    President Bush has sufficient legal authority to conduct a war against Iraq under broadly drafted resolutions that Congress passed in 1991 for the Persian Gulf War and a second resolution adopted last year for the war against al Qaeda, legal experts say. Some add that the president's position would be strengthened politically by seeking a new congressional vote on any operations in Iraq, which would require a public debate over the evidence the administration has developed against Saddam Hussein, and a discussion about what the wider consequences of the war might be on the Middle East. Lee Casey, a partner...

Then, recently, President Bush “unsigned” said treaty, supposedly removing U.S. troops and citizens from the danger of prosecution by the unaccountable court. Then, our Big Pal, the United Nations, said that it didn’t count -- we were in the court’s jurisdiction anyway. “Oh, yeah?” said the American president. “I don’t think so!” Just to back up his position, the American president said that he would pull U.S. troops out of the Balkans. “Uncle!”, cried the U.N. We will give the Americans one-year immunity. “Sounds like a...

    Americans’ sympathies are with Israel in the current fighting in the Middle East, and most say Israel’s recent action sending troops to surround Yasser Arafat’s headquarters was justified, according to a CBS News poll. But many also have concerns and criticisms about Israel’s response – with nearly seven in ten believing Israel’s actions will only lead to more suicide attacks. By a margin of five to one, Americans sympathize more with Israel. Fifty-two percent say that, while just 10 percent sympathize more with the Palestinians. Fifteen percent, however, sympathize with neither. Americans reactions today are not much different from the...
