    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 CNN is reporting that Medical staff were withdrawn from a temporary hospital for safety concerns, leaving the sick to suffer … alone.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.

    I am looking for links to comparisons of articles voicing outrage from the Muslim community vs articles warning against backlash, or news reports on tv, etc., with numbers: 879 articles warning against a backlash vs 31 from Muslim leaders decrying the actions of Major Hasan, for example. I looked on MRC and all they had were a few quotes from tv talking heads. Thanks for any help.

  • Remembering The Victims Of Communism

    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...

    In a reminder that the new strain of H1N1 influenza may not be as benign as originally thought, federal health officials reported Thursday that 100 pregnant women infected with the virus were hospitalized in intensive care units in the first four months of the outbreak, and 28 have died. "What we are seeing is quite striking," said Anne Schuchat, a physician at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta who is helping direct the government's response to the pandemic. "The obstetric caregivers here, and the ones that we're speaking with [around the country] have rarely seen this kind...

In Laghman province’s Alingar district, ISAF servicemembers delivered three truckloads of humanitarian aid items to Sundurwa villagers Sept. 3 after a road washed out, destroying a house and killing nine children. Two children were missing after the flood. In an effort to support the Afghan Border Police, who initially responded to the washout and provided humanitarian aid, ISAF servicemembers, including an engineer serving with the Nuristan provincial reconstruction team, assessed the road and...

    DES MOINES, Ia. – A blank document from the Iowa Department of Public Health has been discovered online, designed to be filled in with the name of an H1N1 virus victim who is required to relocate from his or her home to a quarantine facility. The form, which began appearing today in e-mails and on the Internet, has concerned a confused public already swimming in conflicting reports about the severity of the swine flu and intrusive government measures that many fear may be taken if the disease becomes a pandemic. The Iowa document, which WND confirmed with state officials is...

    The South Carolina spree murderer has been identified. He had been paroled only two weeks earlier and had a 25-page criminal record, including armed robbery, burglary and assault. He was surprised during another burglary and shot dead by police in North Carolina, ending a reign of terror in which five people were murdered. They included an 83-year-old woman and her daughter, a farmer, and a storeowner and his 15-year-old daughter. A police official waved the thick rap sheet at TV cameras and demanded to know why someone with such an extensive criminal record had been released yet again. It was...

    VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. -- Governor Charlie Crist visited flood-damaged areas and devastated families Tuesday as recovery efforts began from the historic floods in Volusia County. The coast is drying up and giving families a chance to rebuild. In Volusia County, 619 houses have major damage and may be destroyed and 912 homes had minor damage. Officials are waiting to find out if federal money will come in to help storm victims and if FEMA will get involved.
