Cheney, Reid spar over Iraq policy

“Some Democratic leaders seem to believe that blind opposition to the new strategy in Iraq is good politics,” Cheney told reporters at the Capitol after attending the weekly Republican policy lunch. “Senator Reid himself has said that the war in Iraq will bring his party more seats in the next election.”

Only if the voters want to be bowing to Mecca 5 times a day.

Bush Denounces Iraq War Timetable

Stepping into an increasingly personal dispute over a crucial war-funding bill, President Bush today denounced congressional Democrats for approving legislation that contains a timetable for bringing U.S. combat forces home from Iraq, and he repeated his vow to veto it on grounds that it would “embolden our enemies,” undermine troops in the field and threaten Americans’ safety at home.

The President can add my name to those who denounce the Dhimmis “time table”.

Obama reassures Jewish voters about Muslim ties

“If I go to Jakarta and address the largest Muslim country on earth, I can say, `Apa kabar,’ – you know, `How are you doing?’ – and they can recognize that I understand their common humanity,” Obama said. “That is a strength, and it allows me to say things to them that other presidents might not be able to say. And that’s part of what’s promising, I think, about this presidency.”

And I know a few phrase in Lebanese, Spanish, German, Thai, and even Vietnamese, would that make me a good president? Not to mention I’m female too and 1/3 Indian.

Out of our world: Earth-like planet

European astronomers announced Tuesday that they’ve discovered the first potentially habitable Earth-like planet outside our solar system where conditions are such that oceans, and thus life, may be possible.

When is the next bus? I’m ready!

Murfreesboro man chases title of world’s best ‘Elvis’

His hips don’t wiggle like they used to.

He’s got four jumpsuits but can squeeze into only three.

But Les Williams still has the two most essential features to impersonate the King — the voice and the hair.

Whatever floats your boat, I reckon.

Mexico City lawmakers vote to legalize abortion

The proposal, approved 46-19, with one abstention, would take effect with the expected signing by the federal district’s leftist mayor. But abortion opponents already have vowed to appeal the law to the Supreme Court, a move likely to extend the bitter and emotional debate in this predominantly Catholic nation.

You’d think in a predominately Catholic country, they’d at least have more respect for life. Sad day.

EU Parliament’s two homes create 20,000 tons of C02

The “travelling circus” between the European Parliament’s two homes pumps the same amount of C02 into the atmosphere as 4,000 London homes and undermines MEPs’ credibility on green issues, according to a report.

A study of the impact of the monthly commute between the Brussels and Strasbourg seats of the European Parliament concludes that it not only costs tax payers an extra €200m a year, but does the same environmental damage as a total of 13,000 round-trip transatlantic flights.

Let’s face it, they are politicians, so likely, there is a bit of hypocrisy going on. Just ask algore!

Police: No Motive Yet in Tech Shootings

More than a week after Seung-Hui Cho killed 32 people during an early morning rampage at Virginia Tech, investigators have yet to find a motive, despite examining his computers, e-mail and cell phone records.

He was evil. What more motive to they need?
