    This morning’s predictably dejecting jobs report provided the GOP presidential candidates with an apt opportunity to cast the president in an unflattering light — and to contrast his approach with what their own would be. Memorably, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney framed his statement in a way that leaves voters displeased with the economy little choice but to vote Obama out of office. “When you see what this president has done to the economy in just three years, you know why America doesn’t want to find out what he can do in eight,” former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said. Importantly,...

    Democrats in America today are twice as likely as Americans in the Great Depression era to favor imposing heavy taxes on the rich as a means of redistributing wealth, according to data published today by the Gallup poll. A Gallup poll conducted April 7-11, in the lead-up to the annual deadline for filing federal tax returns, showed that 71 percent of Democrats believe the government should use heavy taxes on the rich to redistribute wealth.

    BAGHDAD — Saddam Hussein's cousin and two other former regime officials were convicted Sunday of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity and sentenced to hang for the brutal crackdown that killed up to 180,000 Kurdish civilians and guerrillas two decades ago. Two other defendants were sentenced to life in prison for their roles in the 1987-1988 crackdown, known as "Operation Anfal." A sixth defendant was acquitted for lack of evidence. Death sentences are automatically appealed. The most notorious defendant was Saddam's cousin Ali Hassan al-Majid, known as "Chemical Ali" for ordering the use of mustard gas and nerve agents...

    Donovan Riley, running for State Senate in Wisconsin, voted twice in the 2000 Presidential election. Not surprisingly, he’s a lawyer and former professor. Somehow, not mentioned in this Chicago Sun-Times story, he’s also a Democrat. Riley explains the incident with these brilliant words: “My best recollection is that I was splitting my time between Wisconsin and Illinois and it's possible I made a mistake.” Think about that. He waited in line to vote for Gore in the tightest election in decades. Then he drove to another state and accidentally waited in line to vote for him again. On the same...

    NEW YORK (July 18, 2006) -- Laura Landro has the Marines in her blood, literally. Landro was told by her doctors that she had developed leukemia and had little more than two years to live. The cancer specialists told her that only one thing could save her life. If she could defy the odds, find a suitable match with another person’s genetic composition, and receive a bone marrow transplant, she would live. The odds were slim and time was not on her side. "Leukemia is a formidable cancer,” said Landro from her office at the Wall Street Journal in N.Y....

    Washington — How did American interrogation tactics after 9/11 come to include abuse rising to the level of torture? Much has been said about the illegality of these tactics, but the strategic error that led to their adoption has been overlooked. The Pentagon effectively signed off on a strategy that mimics Red Army methods. But those tactics were not only inhumane, they were ineffective. For Communist interrogators, truth was beside the point: their aim was to force compliance to the point of false confession.

    Twice victimized September 3, 2005 GLOBE EDITORIAL IN DISASTER movies, people flee. In real disasters, thousands of people have nowhere to go. In the land of SUVs, they don't have cars or enough cash for a bus ticket. Just as the need for levee repairs was forgotten, the poor in New Orleans were long overlooked, ignored until Hurricane Katrina left them stranded in a drowned city and awash on national television. The mayor of New Orleans, Ray Nagin, knew that poverty would hinder the evacuation of the city's 445,000 people. He asked churches, relatives, and friends to help poorer residents...

    Although a small number of wrongfully convicted individuals have been exonerated by post-conviction DNA testing recently and released from prison. For example, Thomas Doswell of Pennsylvania who spent 19 years behind bars and Luis Diaz of Florida who spent 26 years behind bars for crimes they did not commit. Now Peter Rose, who served 10 years in a California state prison, fortunately and rightfully so, after a finding of "factual innocence," which clears the way for him to collect compensation from the state, as much as $100 a day for the time spent in prison, which adds up to more...

    A German man mugged in a nightclub was robbed two more times as he waited for police. Reiner Hamer, 27, from Oberhausen, near Dusseldorf, lost his wallet containing $310 and his cellphone when three men attacked him in the club's toilets. He called police from outside the club using a friend's mobile, but while he waited for them to arrive he was robbed by three other men, who stole his watch and cigarettes. As he leaned back against the wall to recover, another five men stole his jacket and the last of his small change.

University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire student Michael R. Howard, 20, of Appleton, appeared Thursday in Outagamie County Circuit Court with his attorney, Daniel Clausz.

    The law of unintended consequences has produced a stampede of Indian casinos across California. And the collateral damage caused by this profitable business is causing many proponents of Indian gaming to have second thoughts. When Gov. Gray Davis urged voter approval of a ballot proposition on Indian gaming four years ago, he spoke of a "modest expansion." The explosion of casinos since then has been incredible. And the revised compacts between Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and five more tribes – including San Diego County's tiny Ewiiaapaayp band, with its seven members – promises to raise the gaming stakes even higher. Should...

    There's never going to be peace with the Arabs and the Israelis. If the so called Palistinians ever made peace with Israel they would have to actually construct a functional self sustaining state and this is not going to happen. Does anyone think that Yassir or his successor wants to start worrying about garbage collection, and putting a whole population to work where there is no industry? These now full time killers are not ever going to change and become fish mongers and road builders.My suggestion is that the Jews of the world pay the Arabs in Israel to emmigrate....
