    During a press conference for his latest film, Killing Them Softly, Pitt said: “I am an Obama supporter and I’m backing his election campaign… Gay marriage is inevitable. The next generation, they get it. It is just a matter of time before it becomes a reality.”

    I have heard many folks openly observe that all members of Congress must live in a different world than we live in. I have pondered this oft heard statement and I must concur. I have a direct sense and understanding of these, now particularly odious folks, with a story of life as we knew it around the Beltway of Washington. Back in the late 1980's we were assigned to the D.C. area due to military posting. It was a cultural shock to the entire family. In part, the disparity was due to having lived in Germany for four wonderful years...

    New paint blocks out cell phone signals ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 1 (UPI) -- A Rochester, N.Y., company has developed paint that can switch between blocking cell phone signals and allowing them through. "You could use this in a concert hall, allowing cell phones to work before the concert and during breaks, but shutting them down during the performance," said Michael Riedlinger, president of NaturalNano. Using nanotechnology, particles of copper are inserted into nanotubes, which are ultra-tiny tubes that occur naturally in halloysite clay mined in Utah. Combined with a radio-filtering device that collects phone signals from outside a shielded space,...

    Bush's Top Priority Items scuttled by Republican Leadership Bluebay Mediavannrox 11-17-2004 Bush's Top Priority Items scuttled by Republican Leadership. Less than two weeks after the decisive 2004 election, senior republican senate leaders have openly opposed key policy agenda of the Bush Administration. Questions have arisen concerning whether or not this president has a "Popular Mandidate" to implement his programs. His greatest hurtle is within his own party. Key to the 2004 - 2008 policy programs unveiled by the President include Tax Reform, Judicial Nominations, The War on Terror, and Social Security Reform. At every step in these key policy...

    General Wesley Clark, former Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR) and Friend of Bill's (FOB) is considering a run for President of these United States. In an AP report of 29 June, former-President William Jefferson Clinton stated that Wesley Clark would make a fine president, if he ran. After all, what are friends for? There is also a grassroots campaign effort to "draft Wesley Clark" for president which states, "We believe America needs a new president. One who can be a voice for common sense and moderation in these dangerous, uncertain times. One with the unquestionable leadership and foreign policy credentials...

    Phony Faith-Based Initiative Worldnetdaily By Joseph Farah January 17, 2003 I told you so. I warned you. I explained right from the start what President Bush's so-called "Faith-Based Initiative" was all about – a scam to score political points that would further marginalize faith in the public square, empower bureaucrats and compromise churches and synagogues who cooperate with it. Many of you thought I was being an alarmist. Many of you thought I was over the top. Many of you told me to give the new administration a break and the benefit of the doubt. Well, the proof is in....

    O'Reilly's tragic flaw -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: May 13, 2002 1:00 a.m. Eastern By Geoff Metcalf -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- © 2002 WorldNetDaily.com Bill O'Reilly's hissy fit on the air with Don Imus has done more damage to the O'Reilly package than 50 Matt Drudges. The last time I wrote about an O'Reilly-Drudge dustup, Bill told me, "I don't need radio." And that is true, but as I wrote previously, he obviously wants it. O'Reilly had done a magnificent job positioning himself and his Fox "O'Reilly Factor" as a bastion of "no spin." He had crystallized himself as the guy who would ask the hard...
