    I find so-called "values voters" to be completely inscrutable. First, their "values" seem to revolve entirely around their opposition to: abortion rights, promiscuity, gay marriage, sex-education and church-state separation. Values including compassion, tolerance, generosity and humanity do not apply. But then, when these voters are confronted with politically conservative candidates who seem to defy the Christian Right's rigid prescription for moral behavior, they shrug. No biggie. When I look at the ticket of McCain-Palin, I see a guy who was a playboy, who left his first wife after she stood by him, raising his children, until his release as a...

    Man Robbed While Trying To Purchase Crack Cocaine Calls Cops, Is Arrested Wednesday July 9, 2008 CityNews.ca Staff A man who called police in East Hartford Connecticut Monday seems to have lost sight of his priorities. He reported he'd paid money for goods never received, presumably hoping they would chase down the guilty parties. But authorities were more interested in the fact that the man was trying to purchase crack cocaine at the time of the theft, and charged him with criminal attempt to commit possession of narcotics. The Judge at his arraignment reportedly asked if he "really thought" police...

    Pope Benedict's Christmas message was one of great importance, no matter one's spiritual bent. "Does a 'Saviour,' " he questioned, "still have any value and meaning for the men and women of the third millennium?" This, he queried in his Urbi et Orbi (to the city and the world) message to 10,000 faithful in St Peter's Square," Reuters reported. Sounds to me like a man on a mission, a worried man on a worrisome mission. Would you be asking these questions if business were good, if your flocks were growing? He went on: People should not allow technology to trump...

    Are the Democrat leftists planning a loss November 7? Read this desperate call to action e-mail below: Every poll points to a Democratic victory on November 7. Yet George Bush, Dick Cheney, and Karl Rove all insist Republicans will win. Are they planning to steal another election? Let's start a Blue Revolution across the USA on Election Night to stop Republicans from stealing Election 2006. When the polls close, we propose that Democrats across the country gather outside their County Election Office for a candlelight vigil to Count Every Vote, all wearing the same color: Blue.

    Mexico City, Sep 7 (EFE).- Conservative President-elect Felipe Calderon said here Thursday that he was willing to embrace some of the ideas supported by the more than one-third of voters who cast ballots for his leftist rival in Mexico's closest election ever. "I will make my own the reasons and grounds whereby the voters voted for other candidates and I'll respond to their expectations," he said in his first session with foreign reporters since Tuesday's certification of his narrow victory over Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. The 44-year-old lawyer and former energy secretary, insisting on his willingness to engage in dialogue...

    We hear from a soldier who is refusing to fight in Iraq. Mark Wilkerson has been AWOL for more than a year and is turning himself in at Fort Hood in Texas today. In a taped video statement he says, "I am not willing to kill or be killed for something I don't believe in. My morals said going to Iraq was not the right thing to do." I was not going to live a life of violence." [includes rush transcript]

    ITSY-BITSY, teeny-weeny bikinis are common -- but now multicultural Australia has head-to-foot "burqinis". Designer Aheda Zanetti calls the outfit an "Islamic bikini" because it has pants and a top. She said the costume, marketed under the name Ahiida and available on the internet, covered everything except hands, feet and face. She said it had a "hijood", named after the traditional hijab. Mother-of-four Adeeba Nabulsi said the outfit allowed her to swim with her children in mixed-sex public pools.

    BUFFALO NY--A pregnant woman was arrested Sunday after she left her four young children home alone to attend her own baby shower. Lillie P. Maxwell, 26, of Buffalo, was charged with eight counts of misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child. Her children, who range in age from 5 months to 11 years old, were left in an apartment strewn with rotting food, open liquor bottles and decaying uncooked beef in the kitchen sink, police said. Her 22-month-old son suffered from a possible abdominal hernia and was taken to a hospital, police said. Police said the children were so cold...

    "Best Mascara Ever!" You've probably heard it before, but here goes again: the best mascara in the world is Maybelline Great Lash. I don't know what they put in it, or why no one else can seem to come close to matching the quality of this product, but it really, really works. I feel awful posting this, because I just signed a contract to be a spokesperson for Cover Girl's new anti-clumping mascara. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm sure it's GREAT!!! How about you, sucias? Do you have a favorite mascara? As for why it matters to me?...

There was one of Them giving someone a "Free Stress Test". He had this guy holding what looked like an unpainted soda can with a wire to a video game console. I couldn't help but ask:"You do realize that this is a cult?" I got just the type of reaction I hoped. It turns out the guy taking the test was actually one of ThemThe lead cultist got very angry and...

    Yahoo ^ | 7/16/05 | Steve Gorman
    A modern-day Jesus is coming to prime-time television. The NBC network, eager for new hits to reverse a ratings slump, said on Friday it has given a mid-season 2005-06 commitment to a new drama titled "The Book of Daniel," depicting Christ as a contemporary confidant to a pill-popping priest. The series stars Aidan Quinn ("Legends of the Fall") as conflicted Episcopal minister and family man, the Rev. Daniel Webster, and Oscar-winner Ellen Burstyn as his bishop. The character of Jesus is portrayed by relative newcomer Garret Dillahunt, a regular on HBO's gritty, Emmy-nominated western "Deadwood." He played the man who...

    Berzerkeley Daily Planet ^ | 2/1/05 | MATTHEW ARTZ
    At an hour when many of their friends are sitting down to Sunday brunch, the congregates of Berkeley’s New Spirit Community Church hunt for spiritual nourishment. With the choir pumping out upbeat songs and the casually dressed congregates bouncing along, the hour-and-a-half service stylistically resembles those of other small upstart Protestant denominations leading a nationwide religious revival. But New Spirit is a different breed. Many of those swaying arm-in-arm to the songs are same-sex couples. One lesbian pair slow danced in the aisle as the pianist played “From A Distance,” a song made famous by Bette Midler. “The whole point...

    Some Confused By Bush's 'Satanic' Salute In Texas, Sign Shows Support For School POSTED: 11:11 am EST January 21, 2005 OSLO, Norway -- President George W. Bush's "Hook 'em, 'horns" salute got lost in translation in Norway, where shocked people interpreted his hand gesture during his inauguration as a salute to Satan. That's what it means in the Nordics when you throw up the right hand with the index and pinky fingers raised, a gesture popular among heavy metal groups and their fans in the region. Residents of the Scandinavian country were taken aback when they saw the First Family...

    CAMBRIA - A 20-year-old woman accused of torching a vacant building on the old Nike Base on Eagle Drive had been a volunteer with a Cheektowaga fire company and was "upset" over failing to receive the firefighter of the year award, Niagara County sheriff's deputies said Sunday. Tammy Lagowski, of Cheektowaga, and Jeremy Klubek, 20, of West Seneca, were arrested Jan. 9 on charges of third-degree burglary, third-degree arson and second-degree criminal mischief.

After that, Rollins slapped Austin, and Austin landed on the concrete patio, possibly striking...

    <p>PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico (AP) - Bounty hunters who captured cosmetics heir and convicted rapist Andrew Luster could spend four years in a Mexican jail for snatching him without alerting local authorities in a country that considers their profession little better than kidnapping. Charges of criminal association and illegal deprivation of liberty - which is similar to kidnapping without requesting a ransom - were filed Friday against Duane "Dog" Chapman and others.</p>
