    Today | B. Hussein Obama
    Friend -- Last night, I addressed a joint session of Congress for the first time. To confront the serious economic challenges our nation faces, I called for a new era of responsibility and cooperation. We need to look beyond short term political calculations and make vital investments in health care, energy, and education that will make America stronger and more prosperous well into the future. Watch a few highlights from my address and share it with your friends now: A little more than a month into my administration, we've already taken bold steps to address our urgent economic problems. Through...
  • An American businessman's letter to Obama

    Mr. Obama, Given the uproar about the simple question asked you by Joe the plumber, and the persecution that has been heaped on him because he dared to question you, I find myself motivated to say a few things to you myself. While Joe aspires to start a business someday, I already have started not one, but 4 businesses. But first, let me introduce myself. You can call me "Cory the well driller". I am a 54 year old high school graduate. I didn't go to college like you, I was too ready to go "conquer the world" when I...

    A disturbing trend may be on the rise at Republican rallies. It is one thing to state that your opponent may have character issues or may not be the best choice to serve as President of the United States. It is something else entirely to stoke a fire that may incite violence against a sitting United States Senator who is the other party's nominee for President. Today, in a rally in Clearwater, FL., at a speech given by Governor Palin a man reportedly said "Kill Him" in reference to Barack Obama. We have a little less than a month to...

    From a Soldier Serving in Afghanistan Hello everyone, As you know I am not a very political person. I just wanted to pass along that Senator Obama came to Bagram, Afghanistan for about an hour on his visit to "The War Zone." I wanted to share with you what happened. He got off the plane and got into a bullet proof vehicle, got to the area to meet with the Major General (2 Star) who is the commander here at Bagram, As the Soldiers were lined up to shake his hand he blew them off and didn't say a word...

    We are all now focused on Obama's financial industry bedfellows, who are running his campaign. Here is a story that the main street media (aka Obama protective press) will not cover. His national chairperson, senior advisor on economic issues, and close personal friend rumored for a cabinet post or senior advisor in an Obama White House is Penny Pritzker. • Penny Pritzker through her development of Superior Bank utilizing accounting firm of Ernst & Young and close personal business relationship with Merrill Lynch developed and pioneered the securitization of sub-prime/predatory loans. Using Pritzker reputation convinced rating agencies to give junk...

    My friend just called me to tell me how outraged she is that her daughter's school, Metropolitan State College of Denver, a PUBLIC institution, is shutting down for two weeks so the Teachers can volunteer at the Convention. Does this sound right to you guys? She said her daughter wants to know if she gets two weeks tuition back.

    545 People By Charlie Reese -- Politicians are the only people in the world who create problems and then campaign against them. Have you ever wondered why, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, we have deficits? Have you ever wondered why, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, we have inflation and high taxes? You and I don't propose a federal budget. The president does. You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does. You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does. You...

    Dusseldorf (dpa) - German police are hunting a housewife on murder charges after she allegedly told her children she had flushed their father down the toilet. The man, a taxi-driver, vanished three weeks ago. Police in the western city of Dusseldorf believe the wife, 52, chopped him up and disposed of 100 kilograms of body parts in garbage bins and down the toilet. The Muslim couple hated one another. After her adult children asked where he was, she replied: ``You'll never find him. I've put him down the loo.'' Neighbours said the toilet had been flushed constantly on the night...

    In the last few days there were multiple threads on terrorist forums calling for the assassination of President Bush during his coming visit to the Middle East. They are calling for suicide bombers and others to act and kill the President. Most probably those are all empty threats but the terrorist rhetoric on these forums is very dangerous and may be some terrorist who wants to prove himself for his brethren on these terrorists forums may try to commit violent act including the attempt to assassinate President Bush. The danger of these terrorist forums is so great and there must...

    Recently I have had conversations with several intelligence/counter-insurgent military experts regarding potential war with Iran. The response is always the same -- You have no idea how bad Iran wants the U.S. to throw them into that briar patch. They tell me that there are no good options; just less bad ones. Iran, like Osama Bin Laden, wants this holy war! Apparently, Iran has been flooding Hezbollah spies into Mexico and other U.S. border areas, and they are armed with stinger missles prepared to shoot down U.S. planes if we attack Iran. This, they say, would be just the first...

    According to a congressman's wife who attended a Republican women's luncheon yesterday, Karl Rove explained the rationale behind the president's amnesty/open-borders proposal this way: "I don't want my 17-year-old son to have to pick tomatoes or make beds in Las Vegas." There should be no need to explain why this is an obscene statement coming from a leader in the party that promotes the virtues of hard work, thrift, and sobriety, a party whose demi-god actually split fence rails as a young man, a party where "respectable Republican cloth coat" once actually meant something. But it does seem to be...

    1. Giuliani Leads McCain in Iowa Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has pulled well ahead of Sen. John McCain among Iowa Republicans likely to take part in the state’s early caucuses, a new poll reveals. In the survey by Victory Enterprises, Giuliani received support from 30 percent of Republicans expecting to attend the 2008 caucuses, which are scheduled to launch the 2008 Republican presidential nominating cycle. McCain was second at 17.3 percent. A similar Victory Enterprises survey a year ago had Giuliani and the senator from Arizona tied at 21.7 percent. Giuliani is viewed as favorable by two-thirds...

    A financial storm hit the Army and its largest post last month, with many programs still headed to a dry well at the end of June if Congress doesn't come up with a few more greenbacks and pass an emergency spending bill to cover the war zones in Iraq and Afghanistan. Army Vice Chief of Staff Gen. Richard Cody blamed the military's budget woes on Congress' failure so far to pass a $92.2 billion supplemental request by the Bush administratioAdvertisement n to pay for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as he announced a four-step plan to curtail spending in...

    Tone what down, Mr. Bush? Who are you talking to? To conservatives? I think he is. And I think Laura Ingraham, thinks he is, too. And, proud of God Knows What, he slighted the conservatives who are suppose to sit around and watch their hair turn white as year after year after year after year betrayal, and now having given so much to put the Republicans and the Bush family BACK in power, who believed the oath Bush gave to church leaders, to conservative leaders, in back door meetings, when lots of money exchanged hands, and money from common people...

    "Handel on the Law" radio program | 1/30/05
    I heard this at 6:25 PM yesterday (Saturday), on Handel's show. I'm not sure whether or not it was a replay. A female schoolteacher called in to find out if she had any legal recourse against her female school principal. The teacher, who was upset nearly to the point of tears, related the following: She had invited a veteran to speak to her class, and she had asked the children to write letters to soldiers in Iraq. The principal had approved of all of this. Subsequently, a miserable insect of a parent complained, and the principal then called the teacher...
