    At last week's Comic-Con event in San Diego, the film director Zack Snyder bounded on stage to announce a bold new merger. His next Warner Bros blockbuster would pit Batman against Superman, two costumed superheroes in one movie. "Let's face it," said Snyder, "this is beyond mythological." The fanbase was galvanised. Hyperbole hit the roof. But in Hollywood, alarm bells were ringing. Industry insiders are referring to this season as "the summer of doom" – an overcrowded huddle of big-budget spectaculars, without the audience to sustain them. US box office takings are down 19% on the same period last year,...

    (GunNews.com) — Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has initiated a rulemaking process “to remove unnecessary legal barriers” under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule that may prevent states from reporting to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), which is the database that houses information on individuals prohibited by law from possessing firearms. This is one of the 23 executive actions the President announced in January. “Through the public comment process, we will use the data and information provided by states, health providers, patient advocates and others to determine how...

    Eight out of 10 people in the Arab world have a negative view of the US, according to a new poll. By extension, governments supported by the US are unpopular, found the survey, which was released in Washington. A recent BBC World Service survey found views of the US had started to improve by 4% globally, although they remained negative in the Arab world. Only 6% of Arabs believe the US troop surge in Iraq has worked, according to the latest poll. It was carried out by the University of Maryland and Zogby International. A majority of Arabs believe that...
  • Is America Evil? Ask the Church of Satan

    Most Church of Satan members would support victory for the United States, since its secular form of government, as well as its culture, promotes individualism and freedom. This secularism is seen as "Satanic" by fanatical Muslims and rightly so -- from their perspective. The architects of the U.S. Government were Freemasons and they held many Satanic values, so we feel that Americans should embrace the role they give to us as "The Great Satan." Should a fundamentalist Islamic regime come to power, they would obviously treat Satanists as enemies of the state. To support that outcome would not be...

    WASHINGTON - President Bush has a message for the Indonesian big who said U.S. troops delivering tsunami relief should leave sooner rather than later: Tell it to the victims. "You know, there's a lot of talk about how some in the world don't appreciate America," Bush said after a Pentagon briefing yesterday on tsunami aid efforts and the terror war. "Well, I can assure you that those who have been helped by our military appreciate America," Bush emphasized. Indonesian Vice President Jusuf Kalla caused the flap when he said of U.S military assistance: "Three months are enough. In fact, the...

    For a quarter of a century, a revolutionary movement has been spreading around the planet. While America's leaders were focused on Marxist revolutions and the Soviet Union, a radical new vision of Islam was surging through the Muslim world. It's full power was made bloodily manifest on September 11th. In Iran, where the revolution started and Egypt where Islamic radicals are brutally suppressed where does revolutionary Islam draw its strength, can what happened in Tehran happen in Cairo, and why is America perceived by Islamic radicals as the enemy? The story begins in 1979 in Iran. In that year, the...
