    Two Americas The Democrats are right, there are two Americas. The America that works, and the America that doesn’t. The America that contributes, and the America that doesn’t. It’s not the haves and the have nots, it’s the dos and the don’ts. That is the rationale of thievery. The other guy has it, you want it, Obama will take it for you. Vote Democrat.

    The Two-Track Mind In the spring of 1988, a woman named Dee Fletcher collapsed into a coma from carbon monoxide poisoning. She awoke in the hospital some time later, having been saved by her partner who arrived home just in time. But when she awoke, she was unable to see.The doctors diagnosed her with cortical blindness, suggesting that her brain’s primary visual center had been damaged. However, over the next few days, Dee started to see some things–flashes of red and green in the flowers beside her bed, of blue and white in the sky outside.Dee’s mother flew in to...

    There are three subjects that Jews in my social circle never tire of: food, movies and the two-state solution. Consider me officially tired of the third. I began promoting a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict long before it was popular. In 1986, when I helped organize a rally in Beverly Hills calling for Israel to negotiate with the Palestinians, no mainstream Jewish organization would have anything to do with us, and Jewish “patriots” shouted us down and disrupted the event. I believed then — and still believe — that establishing two states is the best, most just way to...

    Reported attack comes a day after Gaza groups signaled they would halt rocket fire if IDF stopped carrying out targeted attacks as well.

This was done in a public forum, which made some people wonder whether Obama had been made privy to the existence of that information behemoth known as the internet, where his cunning for juggling multiple loyalties was soon posted.

Sarah Palin to be his co-pilot was the biggest gamble in presidential history. As of now, it is paying off, big-time. The sensational selection in Dayton, Ohio, stepped all over the big story from Denver – Barack Obama's powerful address to 85,000 cheering folks in Mile High Stadium, and 35 million nationally, a speech that vaulted him from a 2-point deficit early in the week to an 8-point...
