China surpassed the United States as the world’s second-largest exporter last year and now makes more cars than Detroit, among the latest signs that the Asian giant is rapidly ascending to what many analysts expect will be the world’s largest and most influential economy as soon as a decade from now.
Thank you ever so much unions!
Bishop Gene Robinson, a graduate of the University of the South, is the first openly gay bishop in the U.S. Episcopal Church. More than 20 churches have split from the Episcopal Church in protest over his consecration in New Hampshire, and worldwide leaders of the Anglican church have issued a stern call to the U.S. church to fall back to a more conservative stand on homosexuality and gay marriage.
“If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” No, I’m not advocating anyone be stoned, but this could be a darn good reason that the Anglican church is a tad miffed?
Heavy storms are expected to move through the Dallas-Fort Worth area, bringing the potential for tornadoes.
The first storms were predicted to move through Friday morning, bringing pea-size hail, 50-mph winds and up to a quarter inch of rain.
I guess we can be happy we’re not in the Dallas area. It’s still warmer though.
Iraqi lawmakers held a special session today to denounce a suicide bomb attack on the Parliament building Thursday, as the death toll from the attack deep inside the heavily fortified International Zone was revised to one person killed and 22 wounded, from eight killed and 23 wounded.
Nice to know, that unlike the Dems, the Iraqis aren’t giving up.
Under a proposal by Louisiana State University engineering students, traditional shotgun houses would be attached to “buoyant foundations” — essentially big blocks of plastic foam — and “telescoped” pilings that grow longer as the water gets deeper.
Wouldn’t foam absorb water? I guess they’d be covered with something, but that something may crack, and then where would they be? Although, it is an interesting idea.
“The HIV virus cannot survive in any temperature other than that of the human body, which can not be reached in fruits,” he explained.
The rumor, despite being denied several times, has gained so much steam in the Arab world that it made it to the front page of one of the most important Arabi language newspapers.
A psychological war can be just as devastating as a physical war.
After a meeting between RNC lawyers and congressional investigators, Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Los Angeles) said he learned that Rove might have deliberately deleted them himself.
Oh yeah, I’ve no doubt that Rove sat down at the computers of everyone involved and deleted emails. He has nothing better to do, right? It takes me at least an hour to go through my emails, trimming stuff out of date or worse, spam. YEESH! Barney did it! With Mrs. Beasley’s help, of course.
Rabbi Benjamin Barnett said “each day our state’s laws permit discrimination against lesbians and gays is an affront to God.”
I’m wondering where he found that in the Torah. No one should be discriminated against, however, his argument doesn’t hold up.
