    This will just make you sick, as well as angry and heartbroken. CNN is reporting that Medical staff were withdrawn from a temporary hospital for safety concerns, leaving the sick to suffer … alone. "Earthquake victims, writhing in pain and grasping at life, watched doctors and nurses walk away from a field hospital Friday night after a Belgian medical team evacuated the area, saying it was concerned about security. The decision left CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta as the only doctor at the hospital to get the patients through the night." Read the whole thing. It will sicken you.

    It's a spine-chilling discovery - hundreds of expertly-butchered human bones that suggest cannibalism was rife among early man.What's even more shocking is that the victims may have been HAPPY to be eaten ...The birds are singing and the forest floor is dappled with sunlight. You can hear the sound of a babbling stream, running into the great river not far off to the east. Sharp ears might hear the drumming of a woodpecker or, high above, the cry of a sparrowhawk.

    As we remember 20 years after the realization of Ronald Reagan's famous words "tear down this wall!" On this historic anniversary, the folks at Reason TV have produced a great four minute piece on the victims of Communism. I highlight this because we had so many callers today who lived under or saw first hand life under a socialist dictatorship. People like Kris and Erica and Susan (who lived in West Germany) knew first hand what is was like. But as Reason TV points out, these people and their lives and their sacrifices are too often forgotten. And today many...

They included an 83-year-old woman and her daughter, a farmer, and a storeowner and his 15-year-old daughter.

    Even before the rescue of Captain Phillips, the press was already hard at work doing what they always do, spinning the Muslim perpetrators of the attack into its victims. The current story that is beginning to rise through the bowels of the mainstream media is that the pirates are actually volunteer fisherman who have banded together to stop toxic dumping and fishing by foreign vessels. That’s right the Somali pirates are actually misunderstood environmentalists. And once again Westerners are to blame for causing the poor Muslims to attack them.

    The legislation is most likely DOA in the Maryland House of Delegates -- where a similar bill was shot down in an 86-51 vote -- but the Washington Post is so frightened by a state Senate committee vote approving a measure to make it easier for domestic abuse victims to buy a gun that it thought it important to preach about how "Arming abuse victims is the wrong way to curb domestic violence."According to a March 24 Post editorial, abused women are just too emotionally unstable to exercise their Second Amendment rights and probably "have seen one Jodie Foster film...

    It is with no pleasure that I put in writing what I have long believed: Though many individual liberals have only goodwill toward black Americans, the liberal world since the late 1960s (i.e., after the major civil rights legislation of the mid-1960s) has done incalculable damage to black America and to race relations in this country. Whether out of guilt or because of its own racist views (i.e., the unspoken but regularly implied belief in the inferiority of African-Americans), the left-of-center's general attitude toward black Americans has been that they cannot be judged by the same standards as others.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Hurricane Katrina's victims have put a price tag on their suffering and it is staggering — including one plaintiff seeking the unlikely sum of $3 quadrillion. The total number — $3,014,170,389,176,410 — is the dollar figure so far sought from some 489,000 claims filed against the federal government over damage from the failure of levees and flood walls following the Aug. 29, 2005, hurricane. Of the total number of claims, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it has received 247 for at least $1 billion apiece, including the one for $3 quadrillion. "That's the mother...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 17, 2007 – Afghan and coalition troops detained two suspected Taliban members, seized weapons caches, and administered vital medical treatment to bombing victims in Afghanistan over the past week, military officials said. Afghan National Police officers arrested two suspected Taliban insurgents in Nangarhar province Dec. 14. The suspects allegedly have assisted suicide bombers and have possible ties to improvised-explosive-device trafficking, military officials said. “Afghan national security forces continue to successfully perform counterinsurgency operations,” said Army Maj. Chris Belcher, a Combined Joint Task Force 82 spokesman. “The actions of these soldiers demonstrate the steady development of the (Afghan national...

    ALGIERS, Algeria (AP) - Two truck bombs set off in quick succession sheared off the fronts of U.N. offices and a government building in Algeria's capital Tuesday, killing at least 26 people and wounding nearly 200 in an attack claimed by an affiliate of al-Qaida. Al-Qaida in Islamic North Africa, in a posting on a militant Web site, called the U.N. offices "the headquarters of the international infidels' den." A U.N. official said at least 11 of its employees died. The bombs exploded 10 minutes apart around 9:30 a.m., devastating the U.N. refugee agency and other U.N. offices along a...

    It's been three months since the I-35W bridge collapse, and shovels are about to be put into the ground to begin construction of the replacement. And as sure as the Minnesota winter is cold, victims and their lawyers are lining up with their hands out, demanding compensation. Meanwhile, politicians are tripping over each other to see who can shovel the most of someone else's money at these people, the better to claim the mantle of “compassion” and then browbeat anyone who objects with angry cries of how one could be so “cruel” to these poor souls. It's enough to make...

    Mexican Flood Victims Scramble for Food Monday November 5, 2007 9:16 PM By IOAN GRILLO Associated Press Writer VILLAHERMOSA, Mexico (AP) - Hungry and dehydrated victims of one of the worst floods in Mexico's history scrambled for government packages of food and medicine, while at least 20,000 people remained trapped Monday on the rooftops of homes swallowed by water. Residents were running dangerously short of food and water after nearly a week of floods left 80 percent of the Gulf Coast state of Tabasco under water and destroyed or damaged the homes of about half a million people.

    Unfortunately, most Americans do not consider Iraqis as people. We see them as terrorists or victims, not as everyday people with the same values as our friends, neighbors and relatives. Yet, most Iraqis are decent human beings with the same concerns, dreams, and compassion as most Americans. They want peace and are concerned about their fellow man. Is it no wonder that we feel differently about the people of Iraq, when the American media only reports sensational news? If it doesn’t bleed or explode, you just aren’t going to see it on the evening news. I received a press release...

    Last night on the David Letterman show, his redundant spot about Bush's poor speaking abilities featured a statement about the immigration debate. The president was leaning over the podium whining that some farmer (Is that what they call transnational corporate agriculture now?) met him at Air Force One, suffering mightily, because ' he can't find no body to pull them onions fer him....' Well isn't that special? The president must have been in Georgia. Vidalia Onions are a big crop with even BIGGER owners with political ties, who have pulled off destroying employer sanctions of illegal aliens hires before. This...

    Three young people died in Newark, the latest casualties in illegal aliens' war on America. But don't expect even this bloody outrage to end the complacency of the political elite -- or the mainstream media -- as the alien invasion turns our streets into a slaughter house. On August 13, The New York Times, America's newspaper of wretched, covered the Newark murders in its usual, agenda-driven, fashion. In "After Killings, Sense of Unity Surprises Newark," the Times reported, "Political rivals have promised to work together, young men in gangs have signed pledges to put down their weapons, and a mayor...
