    ( - The House Ways and Means Committee wants to know when the White House first knew that the Internal Revenue Service was targeting groups for heightened scrutiny for their political views, including groups that used the words "tea party" or "patriot" in their applications for tax exempt status, or that sought to educate people about the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration has provided a timeline to congressional staff that indicates that in the 2010 election year the Internal Revenue Service instructed officials in its "Determinations Unit" to "be on the lookout...

    The Nine Ways of Prayer of St. Dominic About the Nine Ways of PrayerThe following was written by an anonymous Bolognese author, sometime between A.D. 1260 and A.D. 1288, whose source of information was, among other followers of St. Dominic, Sister Cecilia of Bologna's Monastery of St. Agnes. Sister Cecilia had been given the habit by St. Dominic himself. "The Nine Ways of Prayer" has been sometimes printed as a supplement to "The Life of St. Dominic" by Theodoric of Apoldia, though they aren't an actual part of that work. The Nine Ways of Prayer of St. Dominic Holy teachers...
  • 10 Ways Conservatives Should Give Liberals Exactly What They Say They Want

    There's way too much fussin' and fightin' in politics, isn't there? In Rodney King's immortal words, "I just want to say, you know, can we all get along?" CAN WE all get along, folks? Can we conservatives cooperate and show just a little bit more of that unity that our valiant President, Barack Obama, promised us all back in 2008? Many of you reading this column are undoubtedly saying, "No, we can't afford to cooperate with the Left! When liberals say they want 'unity,' what they really mean is that we should give them everything they want and call it...
  • Your Rights or Results: You Choose!

    You cannot have it both ways! Every year in America, this “both ways” mentality gets worse and worse. Somewhere along the line Americans started thinking that we could have all of our rights and freedoms and have expedient justice and results at the same time. Well, I have to tell you: YOU CANNOT. There is a blend of the two that must be championed if we are going to continue being a successful country. The mortgage crisis of late is one of the great disasters caused by this “have it both ways” mentality. The government was constantly pressured by citizens...

    FORT HUACHUCA — If England and America are two countries separated by a common language as George Bernard Shaw once said, the same is true of Australia and America. Just ask Australian Army Capt. Tony Sewell. One day while relaxing with some American friends, the 28-year-old officer mentioned he was going to put on his thongs. The comment elicited some raised eyebrows and pointed comments about why Sewell would want to put on the skimpy item meant for the most private of parts. Of course, what the captain meant to impart “to the mates,” he was going to wear flip-flops,...

    18 Ways To Be A Good Liberal 1. You have to be against capital punishment, but support abortion on demand. 2. You have to believe that businesses create oppression and governments create prosperity. 3.

You have to believe that there was no art before federal funding. 5. You have to believe that global temperatures are less affected by cyclical changes in the earth's climate and more...

    Blue sky tinkering (Filed: 17/09/2006)Page 1 of 5 Scientists fighting global warming are now considering wacky ways of deliberately manipulating the environment to control the world's climate. Philip Sherwell in New York reports on the schemes that were once dismissed as the work of crackpots Trillions of tiny sunshades orbiting in space; a mirror 150 miles high stationed between Earth and the sun; clouds sprayed with seawater; planes pumping sulphates into the stratosphere. They may sound to a layman like the weird and wacky fantasies of an eccentric bunch of boffins, but such ambitious plans for cooling the planet are...

    BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan, May 30, 2006 — As improvised explosive devices continue to ravage the area, officials from Afghanistan, Pakistan and the U.S. are responding by proposing an old remedy – cooperation. More than 70 leaders from the three nations and other coalition members attended the Counter IED Symposium from May 22 to May 24 at Bagram Airfield in an effort to neutralize the threat of improvised explosive devices in the area. “IEDs are the biggest threat to the Afghan people and the military effort in Afghanistan,” said Afghan National Army Col. Paiman, public affairs deputy for the Afghan Ministry...

    WASHINGTON - Government studies released Thursday show a broad range of potential costs if the United States were to regulate carbon dioxide to curb global warming, from relatively cheap to expensive. The Environmental Protection Agency said its analyses show the superiority of President Bush's plan for cutting air pollution from the nation's 600 coal-burning power plants. But Bush's plan, which wouldn't regulate carbon dioxide at all, has been stalled in Congress since its introduction in 2002. Nonetheless, EPA compared it with current regulations as well as competing legislative proposals by Sens. Tom Carper, D-Del., and James Jeffords, I-Vt. None of...

    WASHINGTON - A private commission trying to restore public confidence in national elections recommended on Monday requiring a free photo ID for voters, drawing opposition from Democrats and some voting rights activists. Critics suggested that having to acquire the ID cards in order to vote could be an obstacle for minorities, the poor and older Americans and might intimidate some people. "We believe such a requirement would constitute nothing less than a 21st century poll tax," said a letter from Reps. John Conyers, D-Mich., and John Lewis, D-Ga. Poll taxes were once used in some states to prevent black citizens...

    When the 84th Minnesota Legislature convenes at noon today, it will be the most evenly divided in at least half a century -- with 101 DFLers, 99 Republicans and one Independence Party member. Coming after last year's stalemate, that mix raises the question: Can the legislators come together and produce results? The situation was markedly similar on Jan. 5, 1971, when there were razor-thin partisan divides in both chambers and a popular young governor. That year, predictions of a legislative train wreck seemed fulfilled when Republican legislative leaders stared down DFL Gov. Wendell Anderson through a costly special session that...

    Counterterrorism efforts got a major boost last week when an American district court found three Muslim organizations and one individual, mostly based in the Chicago area, guilty of funding Hamas and fined them an astonishing US$156 million.The four were found liable for their roles in the murder of an American teenager, David Boim, on May 13, 1996, when he was shot by Hamas operatives as he waited for a bus near Jerusalem. This case is important in itself, providing some measure of justice and relief for the Boim family. Beyond that, it helps fight terrorism in four ways.First, it validates...

    Delegates Seek Ways to Confront Warming By CHARLES J. HANLEY AP Special Correspondent November 28, 2004, 4:20 PM EST The ice is melting and the heat is on for international delegates assembling in Buenos Aires next week to find new ways to confront global warming under the 194-nation treaty on climate change. The treaty's Kyoto Protocol, requiring initial cuts in "greenhouse gas" emissions by 2012, finally comes into force in February, seven years after it was negotiated. Next, European governments want the annual treaty conference -- Dec. 6-17 in the Argentine capital -- to get down to talks on steps...

    REMAINS OF FOOD SHED LIGHT ON ANCIENT WAYS BY BEN MURCH 11:00 - 20 November 2004 Exotic spices unearthed beneath the Bath Spa show military administrators lived in the lap of luxury in the city's early days. Food and architectural remains found preserved beneath the remains of Roman buildings provide new evidence of the high living enjoyed by the military rulers of what was then Aquae Sulis in the first century AD. The remains were discovered in 1999, but have only just finished being analysed. The ancient grapes, figs, coriander and a peppercorn - along with highly decorative architectural fragments...

    Nearly four years have elapsed since the Oslo process (1993-2000) between Israelis and Palestinians foundered in bloodshed. Over that period, two U.S. administrations have tried to forge policies that would reduce the violence and point toward a solution to the conflict.It has not been a single-minded pursuit. Since September 11, 2001, the prime focus of Washington has been the management of unprecedented U.S. military interventions in the region, which removed regimes from power in Afghanistan and Iraq. The notion of Israeli-Palestinian peace as the key to regional stability has been replaced by the war on terror and the insistence on...

    The state budget deal contains some devastating compromises, including one that will hit California's kids hard: Republicans agreed to drop their demand to revise a 2002 law that largely prohibits schools from hiring private firms for food, transportation, and janitorial and landscaping services. The failure to repeal this law and give districts more control over funding puts California at odds with national trends in utilizing public- private partnerships to improve public education and condemns many districts to financial straits. Schools across the country have saved millions through outsourcing, thus directing more resources to classrooms. When the St. Louis school district...

    It started with the mind-numbing reading of a 200-page pension overhaul bill, erupted into a remarkably bitter name-calling match between House Republicans and Democrats, and ended with a GOP lawmaker summoning Capitol Police to evict an outraged gaggle of Democratic colleagues from a congressional library. Ultimately, nobody was assaulted or arrested. But the brouhaha that exploded yesterday morning in the Ways and Means Committee marked the most bitterly partisan spat thus far in the 108th Congress, a place already known for unusually angry relations between the Republican majority and the Democratic minority, especially in the House. The Longworth building showdown...
