    I was watching TV this evening and started to flip cable channels when I saw a streaming on MSNBC on our forces finding castor beans. The following is a part of what their website said about it. NBC News’ Jim Miklaszewski that within just the past week, U.S. investigators had found two shipping containers filled with millions of much more recent documents relating to chemical and biological weapons. One of the documents, from 2001, was titled “Document burial and U.N. activities in Iraq,” the sources said. It gave detailed instructions on how to hide materials and deceive U.N. weapons inspectors,...

    In what should be a surprise to the American people, those blissfully unaware of total government corruption; Zero travels to a celebration thrown for him by his number one campaign donars at Goldman Sachs. What a sidesplitting, hipslapping event this should be as they all celebrate bank bailouts and laugh at our financial distress. Wait did I hear this properly? Could it be possible after that live TV grilling of Goldman Sach's CEO's three weeks ago by the Senate Finance Committee, Zero's still warmly welcomed on Wall Street? How's it possible that Goldman Sachs is actually paying for this lavish...

    South Africa in succession crisis as President Mbeki sacks deputy By Christopher Munnion in Johannesburg (Filed: 15/06/2005) President Thabo Mbeki of South Africa provoked a full-blown succession crisis yesterday by sacking his deputy over links to a corruption scandal. Mr Mbeki announced that he was dismissing Jacob Zuma, the man he had groomed to be the country's leader after he steps down in 2009, "in the best interests of our young democratic system". Mr Zuma's enforced departure followed last week's sentencing of a financial adviser and business partner, Schabir Shaik, to 15 years in prison. Sacked deputy Jacob Zuma: ‘...

    In the LaMusga move-away case, the California Supreme Court is currently debating how to best preserve the bonds between children and their parents after a divorce. By contrast, Senate President Pro Tem John Burton (D-San Francisco) is trying to slip a bill through the legislature to make it easier for custodial parents to sever these bonds by slipping out of town. Burton's recently introduced Senate Bill 1367 will harm California children of divorce by limiting the ability of courts to determine children's best interests when considering custodial parent move-aways. The bill instructs courts that a custodial parent's request to change...
