  • Columnist: I’m More Afraid Of Legal Gun Owners Than Gun-Wielding Criminals(WOW!)

    A Baltimore Sun columnist wrote in a Thursday op-ed that citizens who legally own firearms are more frightening than the criminals who use the weapons on the rough streets of her hometown. Tricia Bishop, deputy editorial page editor for the Baltimore paper, explained how billboards advertisements for guns and everyday Americans carrying them around made her sick. "I'm less afraid of the criminals wielding guns in Baltimore... than I am by those permitted gun owners," Bishop said. She says this because she believes as a middle-class white woman, she's shielded from her city's criminal element but, in her opinion, she's...

    You will find this very interesting. This is new but backed with the public documents BP filed when it planned to drill 2 wells a few hundred feet from each other in MC252. Testimony says they abandoned the 1st well. Guess where the rovers and cameras are? On the exact coordinates of the 1st well. No rovers or cameras are on the 2nd well a few hundred feet away. That would make Matt Simmon’s analysis, where he was saying that could not have put all the oil in the gulf. Something is very fishy will all this. The spill covered...

    NEW YORK (JTA) -- Libyan leader Muammar Gadhafi insinuated that Israel was behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Speaking Wednesday at the United Nations General Assembly, Gadhafi implied that Israel may have plotted to kill Kennedy in 1963 because he allegedly wanted to launch a probe into its clandestine nuclear program. “Jack Ruby, an Israeli, killed Lee Harvey Oswald,” the Libyan leader was quoted by the translator as saying. “Why did this Israeli kill Harvey? Ruby later died mysteriously. The whole world should know that Kennedy wanted to investigate the actions of the Israeli nuclear reactor in Dimona.”

    Like many other soldiers who took part in the Gaza operation, Omer, 20, occasionally took a few moments to pray, but he did not pray to the Lord of Israel. Omer considers himself pagan, and has sworn allegiance to three ancient gods. During combat, he says they appeared before him, giving him strength during the most arduous moments. Omer is still in the army, and therefore refused to be interviewed for this story. Yet he did say he belongs to a religion whose goal is to revive worship of ancient gods. In an online Hebrew-language paganism forum, Omer's accounts of...

    Paul supporters claim to believe that Paul will shrink the size of the federal government by ending trillions in military, intelligence and foreign aid spending, the day he’s elected. Yet when questioned by Russert about the specifics of such a bold plan, Paul had no specifics about how such a plan could ever actually be implemented. He didn’t even know how many troops would have to be recalled from around the world. Russert had to tell him. He has repeatedly stated that he wants to abolish the Department of Education, the FBI, the IRS and the Income Tax, as well...

    Former Vice President Al Gore is harshly critical of President Bush in his new book, "The Assault on Reason," in which he claims that "the current White House has engaged in an unprecedented and sustained campaign of mass deception." In an interview with ABC News, Gore goes one step further on the war in Iraq, calling it "the worst strategic mistake in the whole history of the United States." However, Gore refuses to place the blame squarely on Bush. "When our country made a decision to invade Iraq, it's too partisan to simply blame that on the current president," he...

    A University of Colorado professor who once compared some Sept. 11 victims to a Nazi could learn within three weeks whether he can return to the classroom — or whether the university will pursue sanctions including dismissal. University President Hank Brown received a report Tuesday from a faculty committee regarding its hearing on alleged research misconduct by ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill. Brown has 15 business days to determine how to proceed, the university said. If Brown decides the are no grounds for dismissal, he could return Churchill to the classroom and close the case, or he could recommend sanctions...

    Borrowing the title of a famous George Gershwin ditty, "they all laughed" when a Santa Fe, New Mexico family court judge granted a temporary restraining order (TRO) against TV talk show host David Letterman to protect a woman he had never met, never heard of, and lived 2,000 miles away from. Colleen Nestler claimed that Letterman had caused her "mental cruelty" and "sleep deprivation" for over a decade by using code words and gestures during his network TV broadcasts. That ridiculous TRO was dismissed last December, but according to a new report released this week by RADAR (Respecting Accuracy in...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Viacom Inc.'s Paramount Pictures unit is ending its 14-year relationship with Tom Cruise's film production company because of the actor's offscreen behavior, the company's chairman said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. ADVERTISEMENT Sumner Redstone, Viacom chairman, said the behavior of the star of the "Mission: Impossible" series and "Top Gun" was unacceptable to the company, according to the Wall Street Journal story e-mailed to reporters.

    "We can't be breeding right now," says Les Knight. "It's obvious that the intentional creation of another [human being] by anyone anywhere can't be justified today." Knight is the founder of the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement, an informal network of people dedicated to phasing out the human race in the interest of the health of the Earth. Knight, whose convictions led him to get a vasectomy in the 1970s, when he was 25, believes that the human race is inherently dangerous to the planet and inevitably creates an unsustainable situation. "As long as there's one breeding couple," he says cheerfully,...

    "I hate the Republicans and everything they stand for," said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, now chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Dean also blamed Republicans for the unhappy occasion when California voters recalled their Democratic governor: "The right wing of the Republican Party is deliberately undermining the Democratic underpinnings of this country," said Dean on Sept. 6, 2003. "I believe they do not care what Americans think and they do not accept the legitimacy of our elections and have now, for the fourth time in the fourth state, attempted to do what they can to remove democracy from America."

Her attorney said Wilbanks plans to issue a statement Thursday. Jose Armando Nino drives his lawnmower past a billboard with the likeness of runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks in Duluth, Ga., Tuesday, May 3, 2005. Wilbanks, who had vanished Tuesday, April 26 after saying she was going out jogging, initially told authorities she was abducted. But she later admitted she took a cross-country bus trip to Albuquerque, N.M., to avoid her lavish,...

    One of the biggest changes in politics in my lifetime is that the delusional is no longer marginal. It has come in from the fringe, to sit in the seat of power in the Oval Office and in Congress. For the first time in our history, ideology and theology hold a monopoly of power in Washington. Theology asserts propositions that cannot be proven true; ideologues hold stoutly to a worldview despite being contradicted by what is generally accepted as reality. When ideology and theology couple, their offspring are not always bad but they are always blind. And there is the...

    WASHINGTON, Nov. 7 - The grainy 30-second commercials are eerie and cryptic, and they suggest a government cover-up of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. One implies that no plane flew into the Pentagon. The other suggests that 7 World Trade Center, which collapsed late in the afternoon that day, was detonated from within. The advertisements, which ran repeatedly here and in New York between Oct. 20 and Nov. 2 on several cable networks, including CNN, Fox News and ESPN, offer a Web site, an address and a phone number but give little indication who is behind them. The ads are...

I saw only the posts of the neo-conservative extremists (bomb the arab, kill Islam, nuke the middle-east etc.) I was mystified how such folks could exist. I decided to post comments to "test the waters" and get a feel for this site. As I did so I was banned numerous times. I testified if this site was anti-semantic (as naturally I thought this site was so far right to be anti-sematic) by making dubiosly...

Kerry's family won coveted prime-time speaking slots at the Democratic convention yesterday, as party leaders try to define Kerry by playing up his public service and military experience. But several key Democrats did not make the initial list of speakers, including Kerry's former primary rivals Howard Dean [related, bio] and Al Sharpton. Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.), Boston Mayor Thomas Menino - who feuded publicly with Kerry in recent weeks - and the Bay State's last presidential nominee, Michael Dukakis, also did not make the list.

    When the Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his wife were crowned the "King and Queen of Peace" on March 23\super \nosupersub -- inside the Dirksen Senate Office Building with Members of Congress looking on -- few news outlets took notice. But in the months since Moon's March 23\super rd\nosupersub "coronation" as Messiah, a growing number of people are questioning the appropriateness of allowing a "coronation" to take place inside a government building. At a press conference on Wednesday, Jewish, Muslim and Christian representatives from the organization that sponsored Moon's coronation unapologetically defended the ceremony, its location, and Moon's Messiah declaration....

    I just heard California Rep. Pete Stark say (I think on the House floor): “You know the President wants blood. The president wants war, that’s why we’re going to do this.” Apart from Stark’s general wrong-headedness, we have him pretending to be a mind-reader, and applying the worst possible motivation to President Bush (worse even than, “it’s all for oil”). Imagine if a similar interpretation were given to Stark and other opponents of Bush’s actions against Iraq: “You know that Pete Stark (Ted Kennedy, etc.) wants to see American blood. The self-hating appeasers want us to die in a nuclear...
