    Now is the Time to Shut Up Robin Mullins Boyd The complete and utter devastation of the Gulf Coast from Hurricane Katrina breaks my heart. Every picture of the damage, every picture of the victims rips at my soul. My heart tells me that the flattened cities are just scenes from a movie, while my brain tells me that the Gulf Coast will never be the same. In spite of the mass of suffering humanity, some have decided to use this fierce attack from Mother Nature as another excuse to blame President Bush, the Republicans or even the United States....
  • In Defense of Cindy Sheehan (Warning: Barf Alert Quotes from DUmmies and KosKids)

    ... The anger directed at Cindy Sheehan is not unprovoked, but it is misdirected. She is a woman consumed by her quest, and that is tragic, and nothing else. Rage should be directed at the grief pimps who exploit this woman’s pain for all it’s worth; those who view her as more ratings, or another arrow in their quiver to send against the President. It should be directed at those members of DailyKos, perhaps the largest left-wing blog, who believe that her son should not be referred to by name, that "theatre professionals at the Sheenan vigil… should arrange things...

    Alan Colmes Show Upstaged by Free Republic Member Alan Colms, a VERY liberal radio talk show host was upstaged twice by a member of the Freerepublic.com website right around midnight Tuesday, July 19. The individual had been looking for news late that evening regarding President George Bush's Supreme Court nomination and found Alan Colms' show. In the first call, the "Freeper", when asked what he did not want to talk about, said "I don't want to talk about abortion as it is a self-solving problem. Those who practice abortion are removing their own power and influence in the political process."...
  • TATP is Suicide Bombers' Weapon of Choice (Used in London, and by Palestinians)

    TATP is suicide bombers' weapon of choiceBy Philippe Naughton, Times Online In the occupied Palestinian territories, you can tell who the 'engineers' are: they are the ones covered in burn marks who might be missing fingers, or even a whole hand. The engineers are the bomb-makers for the young suicide bombers sent to kill Israelis by the Islamic militant organisations such as Hamas. And their explosive of choice, triacetone triperoxide or TATP - named today as an explosive used in last week's London bombings - is the reason for their disfigurement. TATP's base ingredients - drain cleaner, bleach and acetone...

    From The suicide bomb squad from Leeds A relative of one of the bombers was arrested and taken to London for questioning. Intelligence agencies say that at least two of the men had recently returned from Pakistan. All four were British, but with origins in Pakistan. MI6, MI5 and British diplomats were in touch with the Pakistani authorities last night to try to track down any connections with terrorists there. Security sources confirmed that none of the bombers was on any MI5 file, although one had links to a person investigated by police. From Profile: the Leeds bombers [Shehzad] Tanweer's...

    Four pathetic young bombersAlice MilesIt is difficult for Londoners to return to normal life when the events of July 7 have been so glamorised NOW THE real shock. The first suicide bombing to occur in Western Europe — and not one, but four of them. This takes terror in Britain into a new dimension. And yet, my instinct is the same as it was before learning that these were not just “ordinary” bombers, but suicides. And the instinct is even stronger now: do not glamorise them. I see four pathetic young men, feeble manifestations of confused masculinity, too spineless to...

So he is looking for an illegal immigrant in the United States to use it for him - providing a little cash along the way. *** The number of people...

    Our area takes great pride in the role many organizations and residents here played in the Underground Railroad during the years leading up to the Civil War. Thousands of slaves were freed because of the courage of individuals who either housed fugitive slaves or went south to escort them to freedom here in the north. It is a heritage we can be proud of. Today, there is a similar effort underway. It is happening in a land divided along lines of north and south. Race is a component. Other nations are involved. And the bravery of conductors and engineers on...

    North Korea's missionary position By Andrei Lankov SEOUL - Churches are opening in North Korea, a country long known for its hostility to any religion, and especially Protestantism. But it is not the handful of officially sanctioned churches that are interesting so much as reports of a revival of the North's "catacomb church". Given the privation and suffering in North Korea, it's not surprising that the masses would find solace in the opiate of the people. North Korean defectors to South Korea recently were asked about the fate of those escapees who were apprehended in China and sent back for...

    But official says defensive measures don't signal weapons program - NATANZ, Iran - An Iranian official confirmed Monday that a uranium enrichment plant in central Iran is underground as a protection against airstrikes, but insisted that is not a sign the program aims to produce nuclear weapons. U.S. officials have said building nuclear facilities underground is inconsistent with Iran’s contention its atomic program is intended only for the generation of electricity. The Iranians deny Washington’s accusation that they are trying to build nuclear weapons. Ali Akbar Salehi, a nuclear affairs adviser to the foreign minister, said U.S. and Israeli threats...
