Iran Fears Attack

VIENNA, Austria (AP) – Iran, in a confidential letter posted Friday on an internal Web site of the U.N. nuclear watchdog, said its fear of attack from America and Israel has prompted it to decide to withhold information from the agency.

The International Atomic Energy Agency – the U.N. monitor – has in turn told Iran that it is defying the 35-nation board of the agency with its move and urged it to reconsider. Both the Iranian document and the confidential IAEA response were made available to The Associated Press.

What a complete, and utter, crock o’ crapola! This is why they kidnap Brits? This is why they threaten the destruction of western civilization? Why they’ve stated, point blank, they plan on wiping Israel off the map? Cuz they’re scared?

No early release for Hicks, says Downer

ACTIVISTS pushing for the early release of self-confessed terrorist David Hicks will be wasting their time, Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer has said.

Under a plea bargain, Hicks will be sentenced to serve no more than seven years at an Australian prison under a prisoner transfer agreement with the United States.

Early release? Personally, I think he should do his time in Afghanistan.

Bredesen may compromise on cigarette tax increase

“I think he’s realized that we’re serious about tax relief,” Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey, R-Blountville, said Thursday.

Neither administration officials nor Senate Republicans would say exactly what a compromise would entail. But Bredesen stressed: “I’m dead-set on getting my 40 cents for education.”

The governor wants to use most of the projected $219 million in revenues to increase spending on K-12 and college education.

More nonsense. The reason states started lotteries was “for the children’s education”. Every time they want to raise taxes, it’s “for the children”. Well, horse manure! We’re all suppose to be guilted into accepting higher and higher taxes to fund public education that is getting worse and worse. Isn’t it time to stand up and shout “NO MORE”?

Obama will hold fundraiser in Milwaukee

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama will be in Milwaukee on April 16 for what his campaign is calling a “low-dollar fund-raiser.”

The U.S. senator from Illinois will speak at the Milwaukee Theatre, 500 W. Kilbourn Ave., with doors scheduled to open at 6 p.m., according to a statement issued by his campaign office in Chicago this afternoon.

Oh yeah. I think I’ll have to pass on that one.

White-House objects Pelosi’s Syria visit

The leader of the US House of Representatives, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, in coming days will visit Syria, a country President George W. Bush has shunned as a state sponsor of terrorism, despite being asked by the administration not to go.

She goes to a country that sponsors terrorists, and WE get to pay for it. What is wrong with this picture? The woman has lost her mind!

Owners Reclaim Snake Found in Rented Car

Sammy, a 4-foot red-tailed boa constrictor, disappeared two weeks ago after his owners left him in the car while they went into an east side video rental store.
(…)
They returned the car, and someone else rented it from the Budget office near General Mitchell International Airport. That man returned the car on Wednesday, and Budget employees opened the glove compartment. There sat Sammy.

What a shocker! Good thing no one was driving at the time.  Sammy?  Who names a snake Sammy?
