    Bush: Obama Is Doing Just Fine You probably wouldn’t expect former President George W. Bush, in his first speech since leaving office, to praise his successor. But that’s exactly what he did Tuesday. In a folksy address to 1,400 people in Canada, he expressed confidence in President Obama’s ability to mend the economy and financial system, Jason Enns, a financial advisor who attended the speech, told Bloomberg. Media weren’t allowed at the event. “He told us: ‘Wall Street had a big party and now we’re dealing with their hangover,’” Enns says. Enns said Bush told the audience that he expects...
  • Border fences grow, as does debate that rages over them

    (Critics: They're useless; Supporters: They're absolutely essential) NOGALES — Three men prop a ladder on top of a tree branch and lean it against a 15-foot border fence made of steel tubes so close together a man can't fit his head through. One by one, they climb over and shimmy down the other side, landing in the United States at the bottom of the Mariposa Wash, about two miles west of Nogales. They jog north across a concrete road, fading into the brush. On a nearby ridge, a U.S. Border Patrol agent watches, then jumps in his SUV and speeds...
  • Citigroup Bailout Blasted [reader comments]

    Our Readers Who Comment are up in arms this morning about the news that the government will protect Citigroup against potential losses on a $306 billion pool of troubled assets. Those readers have hated bailouts from the moment they were first proposed, and that anger has not diminished in the weeks since. They complain that huge banking companies who stiff them with astronomical interest charges for being a day or two late on their credit cards are getting help, but they're not. They wonder why government seems less willing to assist the auto industry and its threatened workers than it...

    “Let us break their chains,” they say, “and throw off their fetters.” The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. Psalm 2:3-4 As I’ve been discussing for the past week, God is in control. Consider the story of a five-year-old playing basketball with his 6’10” brother. When the little boy says to his older brother, “I’m gonna stomp on you,” the older brother has little reaction but to laugh. It’s totally preposterous that a boy who cannot even tie his shoes can win against his older, taller brother. But, isn’t it amazing when the enemies of God...
  • Why DO the Nations Rage?

    Devotions ChopChop ^ | November 9, 2008 | Dave Miller (tenger)
    Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his Anointed One. Psalm 2:1-2 There are many in this world who would shake their fists at God. They’re angry. Before we become self-righteous about their anger at God, I think we need to take a close look at our house as well. Could it be that they look at us and see a lack of devotion to Christ and his teachings? Consider the areas that this might display itself. You...

    When a voter stood up at a John McCain rally in Waukesha, Wis., and announced “I’m mad - I’m really, really mad,” I thought to myself: You go, boy! It’s about time! Then he lost me: “And what’s gonna surprise ya,” he told McCain, “it’s not the economy.” Not the economy? Pal, I don’t know what Kool-Aid they’re serving in your bunker, but you need to lay off. Anger over the “socialist take-over” may be dominating the message boards at the John Birch Society, but for normal Americans, it’s not even on the radar screen. McCain has absolutely got my...

    I was wondering if people would be interested in some photos from the GOP Convention and all the moonbats on parade. I figure since I'm forced to enter the fray just to get to work, I may as well get some pics of the moonbats on "Peace Island" (Cowleen Rowley's little makebelieve world of unicorns and moonbeams) and other similar nuttery. Maybe I can find a new replacement Anglo-European version of Rage Boy in the process.

    Senator John McCain, the Republican candidate to become the next US president, is prone to uncontrollable fits of rage which those in his camp worry could be a liability, both in November's election and the job itself. His wife has defended his outbursts as signs of "passion". But even some of his friends and supporters worry that displays of irrational anger could prove disastrous if he became the most powerful man in the world, with a thermonuclear arsenal at his fingertips. A member of one of Washington's most respected Republican families told Sky News: "Everyone in Washington's political circles has...

    1. McCain Should Be Feared, Writer Says Presidential hopeful John McCain is being billed as the Republican that liberals can live with, but his credentials as a “bipartisan progressive” are in fact a “lazy, hazy myth,” according to liberal pundit Johann Hari. “The truth is that McCain is the candidate we should most fear,” writes Hari, a columnist for The Independent in Britain, in an article that appeared in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. “Not only is he to the right of Bush on a whole range of subjects, he is also the Republican candidate most likely to dispense with Hillary Clinton...

    Leading Democrats To Bill Clinton: Pipe Down By Jonathan Alter NEWSWEEK Updated: 1:43 PM ET Jan 19, 2008 Prominent Democrats are upset with the aggressive role that Bill Clinton is playing in the 2008 campaign, a role they believe is inappropriate for a former president and the titular head of the Democratic Party. In recent weeks, Sen. Edward Kennedy and Rep. Rahm Emanuel, both currently neutral in the Democratic contest, have told their old friend heatedly on the phone that he needs to change his tone and stop attacking Sen. Barack Obama, according to two sources familiar with the conversations...

    MUMBAI: An Islamic group in India is asking Muslims to boycott products of a top Indian business group if its owner does not apologise for hosting author Salman Rushdie on a brief holiday this week. Rushdie stayed at the bungalow of the Godrej family while visiting Mumbai, where he was born and spent many of his early years. The author is a personal friend of the Godrejs, who are one of the big business families in India. The fact that Rushdie was invited by the Godrejs has angered the All-India Ulema Council - a national grouping of Muslim organisations -...

    NEW YORK: It has been well documented that, across human cultures and in most mammals, males are more aggressive than females. It's simple to blame male hormones but a new study has found the role of brain in the behaviour. A team of researchers at the Vanderbilt University in the United States has carried out the study and found it is the human brain which processes aggression as a reward much like sex, food and drugs. "We have found that the 'reward pathway' in the brain becomes engaged in response to an aggressive event and that dopamine is involved. "It's...

    An undercover Robbinsdale police officer involved in a June road-rage incident was indicted today in Anoka County District Court on a charge of making terroristic threats. Landen Beard was shot in the leg during the June 7 rolling dispute on a Coon Rapids side street. The other man involved, Martin Treptow, 35, was charged Wednesday with drive-by shooting, reckless discharge of a firearm and making terroristic threats. At the time, Beard was in one vehicle; in the other were Martin and Rebecca Treptow and their two children. What is known is that a horn-honking shouting match broke out between the...

    ...Fear not, fellow Americans! In these dark days of war, pestilence and Paris Hilton, a new hero has arisen. She is none other than 75-year-old Mona "The Hammer" Shaw, who took the aforementioned implement to her local Comcast office in Manassas to settle a score, and boy, did she! This was after the company had scheduled installation of its much ballyhooed "Triple Play" service, which combines phone, cable and Internet services, in Shaw's brick home in nearby Bristow. But Shaw said they failed to show up on the appointed day, Monday, Aug. 13. They came two days later but left...
