Physicians believe God can help patients get healthy

“Most physicians apply medical science while maintaining a belief that God intervenes in patients’ health,” Dr. Farr Curlin and colleagues wrote in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

Anyone with faith in a Higher Being could have told ’em that!

Kaine vetoes smoking bill

Kaine attempted to turn the bill into a statewide ban on smoking in restaurants, but lawmakers in the House of Delegates rejected his proposed changes on April 4. In a 59-40 vote, House lawmakers sent the original bill back to Kaine’s desk.

Well, at least there are a few ‘lawmakers’ left who don’t think they should be pushing their own agenda on private property owners.

My ‘billion-dollar baby’ is coming home, says Anna Nicole’s lover

Larry Birkhead prevailed over Smith’s lawyer and boyfriend, Howard Stern, who was listed as the father on the birth certificate. “I hate to be the one to tell you this but I told you so. I’m the father,” Mr Birkhead told a cheering crowd outside a court in the Bahamas. “My baby’s going to be coming home pretty soon. It’s been a long road and I’m just happy to have this behind me and to be able to start a life with my daughter.”

Yeehaw, woohoo, and who cares?

Snoop Dogg charged with gun and drug counts from Burbank arrest

Snoop Dogg was charged Tuesday with felony gun and drug counts, Los Angeles County prosecutors said.

The 35-year-old rap star was scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Pasadena, prosecutors said in a statement.

Snoop Dogg faces charges of gun possession by a felon and sale or transportation of marijuana.

I don’t suppose parents will start paying attention to what their kids are listening to now, will they? I would hope they’d realize this guy, and many of those like him (NO, I do NOT mean the color of his skin…but the message he sends) are not good role models for our youth?

House Panel Subpoenas Gonzales for Documents

“We have been patient in allowing the department to work through its concerns regarding the sensitive nature of some of these materials,” Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the judiciary panel’s chairman, wrote Gonzales in a letter that accompanied the subpoena. “Unfortunately, the department has not indicated any meaningful willingness to find a way to meet our legitimate needs.”

It seems the Dems are so dead set on destroying the President, or anyone connected to him, they have forgotten what they are actually suppose to be doing in D.C.

Nowak’s Car Had Bondage Photos, Pills

A police search of former astronaut Lisa Nowak’s car turned up bondage photos on a computer disk, British currency and pills, according to documents released Tuesday by prosecutors.

Guess the astronut was nuttier than anyone thought.

Immigration activists call for May 1 boycott, marches to demand rights

The so-called “Great American Boycott II” is being planned for May 1, organizers for the March 25 Coalition said Monday. The group is made up of immigrant rights organizations and others who frequently plan rallies around the country.

I wonder if ICE will be available to deport those who are illegal? (sarcasm) Legal immigrants have rights…illegals do NOT!

Tobacco tax clears hurdle

The tobacco-friendly committee cut in half Bredesen’s proposed 40-cent increase on the tax on a pack of cigarettes. The members also voted to divert the expected proceeds from education funding, opting instead to use the money to reduce the state’s 6 percent sales taxes on certain staple foods.

Good idea. Perhaps they should use all that lottery money for what it was originally intended…..education.  I can live with a 20 cent increase.
