  • Following his father’s footsteps: the path of Jeb Bush (50 yrs of power-hungry Bushes is enough!)

    THE vice president of the United States was unhappy. In 1983, a "Conservative Digest" poll of conservatives found that 64 percent of right-leaning party leaders wanted George H.W. Bush replaced on the 1984 Reagan ticket. "Light reading," Bush scribbled across a cover sheet as he sent a copy to his friend James Baker - adding a frowning face. Reagan would have none of it - he liked and appreciated Bush. But the gulf between establishment and insurgent Republicans has only grown in the ensuing decades. The elder Bush's struggles through the years with a restive right shed light on the...

    What a treat for all medieval historians! More than 500 years after he was killed, the skeleton of Richard III is giving them much more reliable biographical information than they acquired over the previous half a millennium. Henry VII, his successor, and opponent at Bosworth, encouraged his court historians to produce a warped picture of Richard. Thank God, then, for the miraculous discovery of his body in a Leicester car park in 2012, and the undeniable truths it provided. Analysis of his skeleton showed the king didn’t have a hunchback exactly; he suffered from scoliosis of the spine, meaning his...

    Impeach Obama Now!! San Diego ^ | 8/7/2011 | roger-sd
    This is old news with a new interpretation. Obama’s stage at the 2008 Democratic convention was designed in the style of the Pergamon Altar, a Greek Temple, which is mentioned in the book of Revelation as the “seat of Satan” or the “throne of Satan,” depending on the translation. The biblical reference is not just to the altar, but to Pergamos as a center of the all powerful Roman state as well as a regional center of pagan worship and persecution of the early Christians. The pagan religion was the state cult and a man could become a god in...

    HONG KONG, China (CNN) -- An imperial "dragon" throne owned by a Chinese emperor set the world auction record for Chinese furniture Thursday, selling for about US $11 million. There was frenzied bidding among mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan collectors at the Sotheby's auction in Hong Kong. Thirty-six bids came in 10 minutes, with tension building as a new telephone bidder jumped into the competition. "These mainland (China) buyers, mainland collectors are ready to pay the premium it takes to secure an object of this quality," said Nicolas Chow, international head of Chinese ceramics and art at Sotheby's.

    Honolulu (AP) -- The leader of a Hawaiian pro-sovereignty group that broke into a historic palace once home to royalty said he planned to chain himself to the throne but couldn't find it because he had never been in the palace before. But palace officials said three locks, including those securing the throne room, were damaged. No artifacts were damaged or stolen, but the group broke into a barracks building and raised a flag on the flagpole, officials said. Police arrested 23 people during the stunt, in which members of the Kingdom of Hawaii locked the gates to the Iolani...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton trails five top Republican presidential contenders in general election match-ups, a drop in support from this summer, according to a poll released on Monday.

    MP's warning over 'blue-eyed foreigner' on Japanese throne By Colin Joyce in Tokyo (Filed: 03/02/2006) A senior Japanese politician has attacked plans to allow a reigning empress in case the child of "a blue-eyed foreigner" succeeds to the ancient Chrysanthemum Throne. The remark by an MP and former trade minister, Takeo Hiranuma, highlighted the way conservatives see the emperor as head of the Japanese race and equate national vigour with racial purity.The government wants to change the law to allow Princess Aiko, the four-year-old granddaughter of Emperor Akihito, to become second in line to the throne. Polls show overwhelming support...

    LONDON (Reuters) - A slightly nervous-looking Prince William launched his army career on Sunday when he entered the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst. The second-in-line to the British throne is following younger brother Prince Harry into the elite academy to train to become an officer. William, 23, arrived with his father, heir-to-the-throne Britain's Prince Charles, at the site in Camberley, southern England, looking a bit apprehensive on the first day of his one-year training course. Last October William passed the Regular Commissions Board exams -- a series of tests and tasks to gauge the ability of candidates to meet the...

    Why do priests use incense at Mass? — A reader in AlexandriaIncense is an aromatic substance which is the resin from certain trees. When burned over charcoal, the incense produces a sweet smelling aroma. To make the smoke thicker and to enhance the fragrance, sometimes other perfumes are blended with the incense.The use of incense in the ancient world was common, especially in religious rites where it was used to keep demons away. Herodotus, the Greek historian, recorded that it was popular among the Assyrians, Babylonians and Egyptians. In Judaism, incense was included in the thanksgiving offerings of oil, grain,...

    You loos, Saddam ... Sun's Terry Richards perches on tyrant's golden throne I JOINED British troops yesterday as they stormed Saddam Hussein’s palace in Basra — and sat on the despot’s golden throne. The garish loo, painted in gold leaf, was in one of the 18 marble bathroom suites we found in the palace. Everywhere you looked there was gold. The taps had tags proclaiming they were 24-carat gold. It even had a gold-plated loo brush. It felt strange to perch there, imagining who may have sat in the same spot in the past. Everything appeared to be in working...
