    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Twenty or 21 women were brought back to the hotel in Colombia by U.S. Secret Service agents and members of the U.S. military in an incident last week involving alleged misconduct with prostitutes, U.S. Senator Susan Collins said on Tuesday. Collins was briefed by the director of the Secret Service, Mark Sullivan, on Monday evening. "There are 11 agents involved. Twenty or 21 women foreign nationals were brought to the hotel, but allegedly Marines were involved with the rest," the Republican senator said in comments emailed to Reuters by her spokesman.

    This is pretty wild- You'll need a fresh twenty (Gipper one won't work!): 1) Fold a new-series $20 bill in half the long way, green-back out: 2) Then crease again, precisely as illustrated: 3) Fold the other end up to match: Remind you of anything? 4) Now just turn it over... Yikes!  Coincidence? Then there's this, same bill: Nice, huh- But why the new Twenty...? 9 + 11 = 20... that would be one explanation. Hey, if you can't see the conspiracy at play... I'll get Ron Paul in here to back me up, he probably loves this crap lol

    Russian scientists expect humanity to encounter alien civilisations within the next two decades, a top Russian astronomer said on Monday. "The genesis of life is as inevitable as the formation of atoms ... Life exists on other planets and we will find it within 20 years," said Andrei Finkelstein, director of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Applied Astronomy Institute, according to the Interfax news agency. Speaking at an international forum dedicated to the search for extraterrestrial life, Finkelstein said 10% of the known planets circling suns in the galaxy resemble Earth. If water can be found there, then so can...

    20 FOLD, 20 FOLD, JUDGMENT IS UPON AMERICA On June 08, 2009, I saw the following photo at www.drudgereport.com. (photo of the $20 over the White House) Underneath the picture was this caption: CHINA AIRS FEARS ON DOLLAR, DEBT. I IMMEDIATELY heard these words: 20-fold, 20-FOLD, again I say, 20-FOLD is come upon this White House and upon this land." Stunned, I asked the Lord, the Great God of Heaven and Earth, "What does this mean?" This prophetic word has taken two days to come forth for me. The following is the interpretation of the photo and the matter. DESCRIPTION...

    William J. Hetherington has been incarcerated in Michigan prisons for more than 20 years for having sex with his wife Linda. In 1986, he became the first man in Genesee County convicted of the new Michigan crime called spousal rape. Linda was not a battered wife; she testified at the trial that he had never beaten her in their 16 years of marriage. Hetherington was honorably discharged from the U.S. Air Force, received a National Defense Service Medal, and had no police record of any sort. The sentencing guideline for this new offense was 12 months to 10 years but,...

    "I know it when I see it" was the famous response by a U.S. Supreme Court justice to the vexed problem of defining pornography. Terrorism may be no less difficult to define, but the wanton killing of schoolchildren, of mourners at a funeral, or workers at their desks in skyscrapers surely fits the know-it-when-I-see-it definition.The press, however, generally shies away from the word terrorist, preferring euphemisms. Take the assault that led to the deaths of some 400 people, many of them children, in Beslan, Russia, on September 3. Journalists have delved deep into their thesauruses, finding at least twenty euphemisms...

    Aids pandemic reduces life expectancy in Africa by twenty years By Maxine Frith 19 December 2003 The full scale of the devastation wreaked on Africa by the Aids epidemic was revealed in the World Health Organisation's annual report yesterday. Life expectancy in some African countries has fallen by 20 years in the past decade, mainly due to the HIV/Aids crisis. Child and adult mortality rates in more than a dozen sub-Saharan countries have increased in the past 10 years, even as life expectancy in developed countries is improving. The WHO report uses a simple comparison to highlight the issue: a...
  • FYI: New Peach-Colored $20 Bills to Make Debut Oct. 9

    09/09/2003 12:18:46 AM PDT · by PureSolace · 66 replies · 508+ views
    WASHINGTON -- The new peach-hued U.S. $20 bill will be introduced at U.S. banks and businesses Oct. 9, officials plan to announce today, Tuesday's Wall Street Journal reported. The Federal Reserve (news - web sites) and Treasury will flood the U.S. and overseas outlets with up to 900 million of the new notes next month, issuing only the new $20 through the end of October and withholding previously circulated $20s until November. The idea is to get consumers, businesses and money handlers accustomed to the pretty new note. Officials say adaptation of machinery, training of retail employees and other preparations...

    CRITIC'S NOTEBOOKOld Hickory, Hang on to Your NogginBy SARAH BOXER sn't it a little weird that the United States government's campaign this month announcing the fall introduction of its new, colorful, counterfeit-resistant $20 bill — a bill with faint peach, turquoise and gold tones — is called "The New Color of Money"? Wasn't "The Color of Money" a movie about a pool hustler named Fast Eddie Felson? In the spirit of patriotic gambling, I went to a cash machine and took out a whole lot of money, hoping that at least one bill that popped out would be a pre-1998...

    Oregon voters have rejected a temporary income tax surcharge -- handing a major victory to the state Libertarian Party, which led the fight against the proposed tax hike. On January 28, in a statewide referendum, voters rejected Measure 28 by 55%-45%. Had it passed, the initiative would have raised taxes by $725 million over three years. "We are very happy tonight," said Oregon LP Executive Director Richard Burke, as the magnitude of the anti-tax vote became clear. "We were very surprised by the margin." Just eight days earlier, a statewide poll by Portland's KATU Television had said the vote was...
