    Okay Folks, Enough is Enough! I have enjoyed participating in this forum for a long time because I enjoy supporting the conservative values people like JimRob, the Tea Party, and other decent Americans hold dear to. It's obvious we are in the fight of our lives for the long-term survival of this country. 2012 is clearly a major turning poing that could very well decide whether or not America survives. Because of this importance, it is paramount we select the right candidate, the true conservative that will stand with us on all the conservative specturms (social, economic, domestic, and foreign...

    "…The more terrifying the occasion for defense, the closer will become the organization and the more coercive the influence upon each member of the herd. War sends the current of purpose and activity flowing down to the lowest level of the herd, and to its most remote branches. All the activities of society are linked together as fast as possible to this central purpose of making a military offensive or a military defense, and the State becomes what in peacetimes it has vainly struggled to become—the inexorable arbiter and determinant of men’s business and attitudes and opinions…" -Randolph Bourne Dear...

    National Post (Canada) ^ | Saturday, July 01, 2006 | Dirk Meissner
    VICTORIA (CP) - The annual Canada Day parade in the seaside community of Parksville will have one less float Saturday because a local group opposes what it calls the American-dominated military theme of this year's parade. The decision by parade organizer, the Parksville and District Chamber of Commerce, to sell T-shirts with the message Support Our Troops has started an ideological war of words in this normally tranquil tourism and retirement community located about 150 kilometres northeast of Victoria. The decision to sell T-shirts, for $10 each, was made to raise money to offset parade costs and send a message...

    TUNIS, 31 January 2006 — Interior Minister Prince Naif yesterday called on Arab and Islamic countries to take a decisive stand on the issue of cartoons denigrating the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). “It’s certainly insulting to all Muslims,” Prince Naif told reporters about the 12 cartoons published by a Danish newspaper last September and reprinted in a Norwegian magazine in January. “Saudi Arabia’s stand on this matter is very clear,” he said. The Saudi Cabinet had earlier denounced the sacrilegious cartoons.

Bush will resubmit 20 federal judicial nominations, reigniting a battle with Democrats who accuse the nominees of hostility to abortion rights and the environment.The list includes seven of the 10 candidates whose nominations failed during Bush's first term because of Democratic filibusters that blocked Senate confirmation votes.

    Washington Post ^ | February 8, 2005 | Charles Babington
    It's safe to assume that the mood at the White House dinner table last night was a bit more tense than usual. A few hours before dining with President Bush and a handful of others, Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) took the Senate floor to rebuke the president and his political party for a 13-page mass-mail attack on Reid, authored by the Republican National Committee. "Is this how he wants to be a uniter?" Reid asked in his speech. The RNC, he said, "is his committee," so how can Bush call for bipartisanship one minute and then "send out...

    I have just received info from a Liberal Democrat that says that Dem's are already planning to try and impeach Bush for the abuse at Abu Gharib. She is a Leader in the Democratic Party. She said that they will succeed in their impeachment of President Bush. First of all, sounds as though some Democrats are conceding to Bush and second they want to hurt him in any way possible. More on this when I can get some more information from her.

    GENEVA (Reuters) - The American Civil Liberties Union Tuesday brought a complaint to the United Nations charging that Muslim immigrants in the United States were unfairly detained and deported in the wake of Sept. 11. The complaint, specifically on behalf of 10 former detainees and three men still in custody, was filed with the U.N. working group on arbitrary detentions. It accuses the U.S. government of arbitrarily arresting hundreds of Muslim immigrants from South East Asia and the Middle East following the hijacked airliner attacks in 2001 on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, which killed nearly 3,000 people.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Ten lawmakers whose trip to North Korea was canceled by the White House have sent a scathing letter to President Bush, complaining of the "arrogant and disrespectful" treatment from his national security advisers. The five Republicans and five Democrats said they were offended "and believe you are being ill-served by your National Security Council staff." A copy of the 5 1/2-page letter, dated Thursday, was obtained by The Associated Press. There was no immediate comment from the White House. The letter adds to growing tensions between lawmakers and the White House on foreign policy issues. Republicans and...
