    "They gave me some raw waffles," caller says, "and I told him that I don't want the waffles."Apparently undercooked breakfast food is an emergency in at least one state… According to a 911 call posted online by the Tampa Police Department, a Florida woman called the emergency number to report that she was served raw, uncooked waffles at a Village Inn in Tampa. "They gave me some raw waffles," the call begins "and I told him that I don't want the waffles." According to the clip, the call was placed on January 31, 2013. “[The restaurant] sold me something that...

    An 18-year-old Florida woman was only slightly injured this week when she was shot by her friend’s oven, police said. Aalaya Walker was visiting a friend in St. Petersburg Monday when they decided they wanted some late-night waffles, The Tampa Bay Times reported. So Walker began preheating the oven—unaware that her friend, JJ Sandy, 25, was storing a magazine from his .45-caliber Glock 21 in the oven. The magazine exploded about 9 p.m. ET, spraying casing fragments at high speed and striking Walker. She managed to pick some of the fragments out of her leg and chest and then took...
  • U.S. Adopts Israeli Anti-Terror Tactics, but Waffles on Defending Israel’s Use of Them

    Commentary Magazine ^ | 12/2/10 | Evelyn Gordon
    One cable from the WikiLeaks trove raises a disturbing possibility: the Obama administration’s obsession with Israeli settlements could end up undermining America’s own war on terror. Shortly before Israel announced a 10-month freeze on settlement construction last year, Germany urged Washington to threaten that absent such a moratorium, the U.S. would refuse to block a UN Security Council vote on the Goldstone Report, which accused Israel of war crimes in Gaza. U.S. officials correctly responded that this would be “counterproductive” but agreed to tell Israel “that their policy on settlements was making it difficult for their friends to hold the...

    Kellogg is rationing its Eggo products due to flooding and equipment problems at two bakeries. The shortfall could last through mid-2010. Better hoard your Eggos! Grocery stores will be experiencing a shortage of the waffles until mid-2010 due to problems at two bakeries, a Kellogg's spokeswoman said on Wednesday. Flooding at an Atlanta bakery during heavy rains in October forced Kellogg, which makes Eggo products, to shut down production temporarily, said company spokesman Kris Charles. Plus, equipment at Kellogg's largest waffle facility, based in Rossville, Tenn., needs extensive repairs. "We are working around the clock to restore Eggo store inventories...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | 12/29/2008 | Stephen F. Hayes
    On April 21, 2008, the day before Pennsylvania's Democratic primary, Barack Obama sat at the counter of the Glider Diner in Scranton. Senator Bob Casey Jr., who had endorsed Obama and was traveling with him throughout the state, occupied the next stool. It had all the makings of a great photo-op - home state senator, local eatery, lots of cameras. There was just one problem: those pesky reporters. As Obama cut into his butter-soaked waffle - fork in his left hand, knife in his right - one newshound wanted the candidate's reaction to the news of the day. Former President...

    GHENT, Belgium, November 26, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Belgian couple faces possible jail time for having sold their newborn child on eBay and for having registered the child under an assumed name.   A Belgium state prosecutor said, “The couple are suspected of registering the birth under a false name, which is an offence. That is to say that the name the baby boy was given was not that of his real mother.” The offence carries a maximum sentence of ten years in prison.

    Fresh off a big-buck fundraiser in Minneapolis, Democrat Barack Obama dropped in on a humble St. Paul pancake house Thursday to chat with diners about their concerns. The presidential contender spent more than 40 minutes making his way from table to table at the Copper Dome Restaurant, shaking hands and even picking up a baby as photographers, videographers and reporters crammed between diners to follow his every move. "This seems like a pretty good spot. This is where the happening people meet," Obama said shortly after walking into the restaurant, a neighborhood fixture. Word of Obama's visit spread quickly and...

    Clinton Says No to Licenses for Illegals Nov 14 05:28 PM US/Eastern By DEVLIN BARRETT Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday came out against granting driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, after weeks of pressure in the presidential race to take a position on a now-failed ID plan from her home state governor. Clinton has faced criticism from candidates in both parties for her noncommittal answers on New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer's attempt to allow illegal immigrants in his state to receive driver's licenses. Spitzer abandoned the effort Wednesday. "I support Governor Spitzer's decision today...

    A Statement from John Kerry As a combat veteran, I want to make it clear to anyone in uniform and to their loved ones: my poorly stated joke at a rally was not about, and never intended to refer to any troop. I sincerely regret that my words were misinterpreted to wrongly imply anything negative about those in uniform, and I personally apologize to any service member, family member, or American who was offended. It is clear the Republican Party would rather talk about anything but their failed security policy. I don’t want my verbal slip to be a diversion...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - George Johnson, considered California's oldest living person at 112 and the state's last surviving First World War veteran, had experts shaking their heads over his junk food diet. "He had terrible, bad habits. He had a diet largely of sausages and waffles," Dr. Stephen Coles, founder of the Gerontology Research Group at the University of California, Los Angeles, said Friday. The 5-foot-7, 140-pound Johnson died of pneumonia Wednesday at his Richmond home in Northern California. "A lot of people think or imagine that your good habits and bad habits contribute to your longevity," Coles said. "But...

    Former Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry said on Thursday he was seriously thinking about another White House bid in 2008 and will decide before the year is out. "I will make that decision toward the end of the year, but I'm thinking about it hard," Kerry said in response to a question at the Latin Economic Forum at the United Nations. "If you can get help me find 60,000 votes in Ohio ...," he joked, referring to the close race in that state on which his 2004 loss to President Bush hinged.

In an interview with a Belgian journal, the cardinal said that it is legitimate for government to establish laws that differ from those of the Church on questions such as same-sex unions, prostituion, and contraception. "I can accept that civil legislation determines the conditions for cohabitation and the rights of homosexual couples," Cardinal Danneels said. He went on...

    On September 1, 2003, the Miami Herald reported that, "Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry...appeared to shift his stance on the trade embargo with Cuba on Sunday, telling a national television audience that he now supports keeping sanctions in place. Kerry's remarks, delivered on NBC's Meet the Press, seemed to contradict statements he made during a 2000 interview with the Boston Globe that a reevaluation of the embargo was 'way overdue.'" This was a startling departure for a senator who has a nearly 20-year history of sponsoring or voting for numerous bills to ease economic and travel restrictions on Cuba. What had...

    Mrs. Heinz-Kerry and her connection to The Tides Foundation is not ‘new‘ news. The Tides Foundation’s connection to moveon.org isn’t breaking news, either. Nor is moveon.org’s connection to Texans for Truth. What is lesser known is the Communist Party’s willingness to back Kerry in this election. They’ve encouraged their members to vote for him instead of their own candidate. Their sole reason? Getting rid of President Bush. The W.W.W.P.

    Funny moment from the Indianapolis Colts AT the New England Patriots tonight (in Foxboro, MA). In the fourth quarter on one drive the Colts get a good spot on third and 1 for a first down and then a questionable Pass Interference call in the end zone, but Edgerrin James fumbles at the 1-yard line on the next play, giving New England the ball with a 3 point lead and 3 minutes left. Here's the commentary: John Madden: "That's what you call a flip-flop" Al Michaels: "Well we're in the right state for that, John."

    In an interview this morning on Fox and Friends, Kerry spokeman Jeh Johnson backed off of Democrat presidential nominee Senator John Kerry's repeated statements that he had spent Christmas 1968 on a secret mission in Cambodia.Fox's Brian Kilmead asked Mr. Johnson whether Sen. Kerry would release the action report from January 20, 1969 regarding purported action in Cambodia.Mr. Johnson said, "I believe you're referring to an incident that happened near Cambodia. Okay, well John Kerry has said on the record that he had a mistaken recollection earlier. He talked about a combat situation on Christmas Eve, 1968, which at one...

Mr. President, I will speak tomorrow on the subject of fast track. I wish to talk this evening about another subject that has not received as much conversation on the floor of the Senate as it merits--because, while we have been focused on fast track and on a lot of loose ends which must be tied up before this first session of the 105th Congress can be brought to a close, a very troubling situation has developed in the Middle...

    Belgium shamed over human rights 3 August 2004 BRUSSELS – Amnesty International slammed Belgium on Tuesday, saying it was failing to respect fundamental human rights. The leading international human rights organisation said the Belgian authorities had to stamp out police brutality and racism. It called on them to take speedy action to put in place a string of concerns outlined by the UN Human Rights Committee last Friday. In a statement, Amnesty said when complaints were made against police officers, they were not always investigated properly and when guilty officers were punished, the sentences were “usually symbolic”. The UN and...

    There is a new documentary about Kerry. I don't know if this has been posted already. I did a search and couldn't find where it had. Go to demextrememakeover They have just posted the documentary and it is called Kerry Iraq Documentary. It illustrates Senator Nuances semantical word play about Iraq. He can try but he can't run from his own words. He isn't as slick or charming as Clinton.

    AP on Yahoo ^ | 7/26/04 | Liz Sidoti -AP
    BOSTON - A conservative anti-tax group unveiled a $1 million advertising campaign Monday that paints Democrat John Kerry (news - web sites) as a waffler, picking up where President Bush (news - web sites) left off last week when his campaign pulled down its ads. The Club for Growth's launch is much smaller than what Bush had been spending. However, the group's ads will give Republicans somewhat of a presence on the air in certain areas during a week in which Kerry news dominates the airwaves. Bush's campaign went dark this week, with the campaign opting to save money for...

    Michael Moore may be the Democratic Party's favorite filmmaker, but the Kerry-Edwards campaign wants nothing to do with him during next week's Democratic Convention in Boston. Asked about some of the angry Bush-bashing rhetoric coming from Hollywood these days, Kerry campaign spokesman Chad Clanton told Westwood One radio host Ron Insana on Saturday: "I can't speak for every extremist out there. Michael Moore - these people aren't part of the Kerry campaign." But it turns out Clanton may have spoken too soon. Not only will Moore be descending on Boston during convention week to bask in the adulation of...
