Former Justice Dept. Official Praises Fired U.S. Attorneys

James B. Comey, the Justice Department’s second-in-command from 2003 until August 2005, also told a House Judiciary subcommittee that he was never informed about an effort by Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales and his aides to remove a large group of prosecutors that began in early 2005.

Since when is 8 a “large group”? And just why do they keep beating this horse? It’s a NON issue! That horse is dead. Bury it!

Gun Laws Expanded for Self-Defense

Currently, Tennesseans can use deadly force when faced with a threat of death or serious injury in their own homes. The bill approved by the Senate Thursday and by the House last week extends those areas to include all homes and vehicles, regardless of who owns them.

Bless their hearts! They get it! Are you listening Diamond Jim???

Green Bay to consider immigrant ordinance

The Green Bay City Council’s consideration of changes to its licensing codes to try to deal with illegal immigration is drawing fire from Latino, religious and legal groups.

Legal groups? Legal? It’s been an ILLEGAL invasion, but cities aren’t suppose to address the problem? Give me a bloomin’ break!

Committee wrapping Super Bowl bid package

The North Texas Super Bowl XLV Bid Committee is sending via FedEx six copies of a 2 ½- inch thick binder containing the local pitch to host the NFL’s biggest game. Also to be included in the mailing are seven binders filled with supporting documents, such as contracts securing more than 21,000 hotel rooms.

I think it’s about time they had a Super Bowl in Dallas! 🙂

Rep. Clay co-sponsors bill to impeach Cheney

Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-St. Louis, has joined two other members of Congress in sponsoring a bill to impeach Vice President Dick Cheney.

The bill seeks to have Cheney removed because, the measure contends, he led Americans into a war in Iraq on false pretenses.

All I can say is…..HUH?

Historic meeting with Rice ends Syria’s diplomatic isolation

The Bush administration has ended its diplomatic quarantine of Syria by having the Secretary of State meet her counterpart from Damascus during a conference in Egypt that the US hopes will be a first step towards restoring stability to Iraq.

I wonder if that’s such a great idea. Honestly, I’m not sure.

‘Those who failed can’t fix mistakes’

Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday called for a new leadership that would restore the public’s trust in the government, declaring that those who failed at running the country during the Second Lebanon War could not fix the mistakes they themselves had made.

When is the next Israeli election? I’m afraid the divisions in Israel are going to weaken them, as they have done in our country.

Student accused of exposing self

Two girls, ages 15 and 16, told a school resource officer the boy exposed himself to them numerous times between April 23 and April 27 and performed a sexual act on himself in a classroom.


Cops say human skull collection is OK

Grand-Central Area detectives confiscated the skulls. But investigators later determined that although they were human, there was nothing illegal about possessing the skulls, which were about 70 to 80 years old, Lt. Mark Hawkins said. There was no sign of trauma, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

I don’t even want to know why anyone would collect human skulls.
