    Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson is still a relative unknown, but according to the latest polls, he’s drawing double digits against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. But while Johnson might be gaining fans because of his position on legalizing marijuana—it’s a key part of his campaign’s platform—he swears that, should he actually win the White House, he would quit smoking pot (at least for his first term)....

    As the United States Senate prepares to vote on a non-binding resolution on whether or not manmade global warming exists, Pope Francis weighed in on the issue with his most extensive and forceful comments on the subject to date. Let's just say that the pope is not aligned with many Senate Republicans, who doubt the reality and threat of manmade global warming, on this issue. Speaking to reporters aboard his plane while flying to Manila from Sri Lanka, Pope Francis said the "majority" of global warming is manmade, which is a view that is consistent with mainstream climate-science findings. “I...

Speaking at a conference of the leadership of the Kibbutz movement, Livni said that while she served as foreign minister, one of her colleagues told her that in the past there were only a few countries that were not sympathetic to Israel, but in the present there are only two or three European countries that are still ready to stand up for Israel, but are finding it difficult to do so...

The Moonlite Bunny Ranch, a Nevada brothel has begun a campaign they are calling “Pimpin for Paul” The owner of the Brothel, Dennis Hof said in a statement “We decided to go with the guy that’s more about state’s rights — and that’s Ron Paul,” Hof did a survey of 500 prostitutes to see which candidate they wanted to support, and the results were close between Ron Paul and Newt Gingrich. “We thought real closely about supporting Newt Gingrich —...

    After a seven-month retirement, Helen Thomas has a new journalism gig: columnist for the Falls Church News-Press in Virginia, as the ARLnow blog in Arlington, Va., reports. The 90-year-old retired from Hearst newspapers in June after a media uproar over controversial comments she made about Israel. That move sent shock waves through the press corps and left White House reporters scrambling to see who'd get Thomas' front-row seat in the briefing room. So why'd the News-Press give her another chance?

    The numbers are so staggering that they are hard to process mentally and impossible to process logistically: each month some 60,000 Iraqis are voting with their feet against the surge of U.S. forces by fleeing their homes. Since the invasion, more than 2.5 million Iraqis have left for neighboring countries, while 2.2 million have been forcibly displaced within Iraq - too poor to escape the country or blocked from transitioning through more peaceful provinces, which in recent months have erected checkpoints to keep them out. To put it in stark historical terms: the war has created the largest refugee crisis...

    A former senior aerospace engineer at Boeing's Phantom Works research unit, fired last year under disputed circumstances, is going public with concerns that the new 787 Dreamliner is unsafe. Forty-six-year veteran Vince Weldon contends that in a crash landing that would be survivable in a metal airplane, the new jet's innovative composite plastic materials will shatter too easily and burn with toxic fumes. He backs up his views with e-mails from engineering colleagues at Boeing and claims the company isn't doing enough to test the plane's crashworthiness. Boeing vigorously denies Weldon's assertions, saying the questions he raised internally were addressed...

He was the older brother (by some ten years) of the dramatist, librettist, and translator Modest Ilyich Tchaikovsky.

NBC News announced Thursday it had agreed to a "second term" with the MSNBC "Countdown" host, whose contract was due to expire next month. The extension will take him into 2011. Besides feuding with Fox News Channel's O'Reilly, Olbermann has become a liberal hero. He has seen his ratings increase since launching a series of anti-President Bush commentaries late last summer. . . .

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., said she was "disgusted" by the comments "and deeply disappointed in Rep. Harris personally."

    John Kerry wants neither American nor our allies’ military pullout from Iraq. Kerry even approached the Spanish prime-minister with this in mind but found no understanding at all. Mr. Salatero was firm in his denial of the prolonged Spanish military presence in Iraq ‘where during the last year of peace there were more killed than during the previous year at war. He also noted that the UN is still not in charge in Iraq. Perhaps the Spanish top official knew the real motives of Kerry. The guy’s doing brisk business there. That’s was quite a revelation for me! Kerry and...

    Assassins may have closed on Broadway, but another show is taking aim at the leader of the free world in the new guerilla comedy "I'm Gonna Kill the President!" A Federal Offense. Performances begin at 10 PM at an undisclosed Manhattan location, running Aug. 17-Sept. 4 — including the dates of the Republican National Convention. A press release for the work penned by "Hieronymous BANG" reads like an classified government document with key words crossed out with a black marker.

    I AM A conservative Republican on most issues. But I can't donate to the GOP or vote for President Bush based on his - and the party's - stance on animal rights. I am a vegan and a proud member of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. I'm disappointed that the Bush administration has done nothing to improve animals' lives. I saw a video of President Bush at a campaign stop during the 2000 election. In it, a reporter asks "What do you think about PETA?" Then-Gov. Bush responded sarcastically, "I'm glad I ate my bacon for breakfast today."...

    New York Times via Houston Chronicle ^ | April 11, 2004, 12:20AM | By WILLIAM SAFIRE
    Sometimes a new or offbeat word or phrase is used in common parlance for years before it sees print. Occasionally our computers' search engines, prowling the world of words for everything written or transcribed, can pick up an isolated usage. So it is with wing nut. I've heard this phrase spoken by political reporters for a couple of years but never saw it in print. Then in came an e-mail message from Mary E. Moliski, who describes herself as a "grandmother and word enthusiast" and sees this column in The Houston Chronicle: "Have you researched the word(s) wing nut? I...

    Thursday, January 02, 2003 Totalitarianism nears Without protest, Americans are giving up freedom By GLEN T. MARTIN    IN NAZI Germany at this time of year, people freely shopped in large department stores for gifts for family and friends. The streets were full of traffic. It was "business as usual" for most of the citizens. While in the colonial states conquered by the Nazis, and in the concentrations camps for Jews, gays and communists, life was a living nightmare of dehumanization and human-rights violations.     In the United States today, people freely shop in large department stores for gifts, and the...

    Student group addresses sexuality, gender issues Alison Pierce Most Stanford students probably don’t spend time thinking about what it means to be “queer.” However, an increasingly visible and vocal queer community exists on campus, and a new student-run group called Querillas seeks to support it by increasing awareness about gender, sexuality and racial issues through activism, discussion and bimonthly meetings. Querillas’ stated mission is “to create and sustain queer activism and to mobilize, educate and empower members of the Stanford community. This is to effect fundamental, long-lasting changes in the University’s structure to ensure a commitment to furthering queer liberation.”...
