Lott urges Bush to wield veto threat

The Senate’s No. 2 Republican yesterday said he has told President Bush to be prepared to save their party from a bad immigration bill through his veto pen.

The President has been concentrating on the war on terror, but has forgotten about the terror right here in this country with criminal illegals, many who are members of a violent gang spreading across the nation. Include the cost to the taxpayers for the education and health care of those who snuck in, and this bill might make me reconsider whether or not he should be impeached and let Cheney take over.

Trooper in oral sex case faced earlier charge
Motorist filed complaint on incident in 2000; no disciplinary action taken

The state trooper accused of receiving oral sex from a pornographic film actress during a traffic stop had been the subject of a complaint from a female motorist in 2000, the state safety commissioner said Wednesday.

Not saying one single word.

Body found in Iraq is Calif. soldier

Thousands of U.S. and Iraqi troops fanned out across the fields of southern Iraq in scorching temperatures Thursday as the military said it remained determined to find two missing U.S. soldiers after the body of a third was pulled from a river.
(…)
The military confirmed that the body found Wednesday in the Euphrates River south of Baghdad was that of Pfc. Joseph Anzack Jr., of Torrance, Calif., who had been missing since militants ambushed his unit nearly two weeks ago.

Prayers for his family, and to find the other soldiers safe.

Refugee camp militants pledge to fight on to the last man standing

Pumped up on drugs, hard to kill and refusing to surrender, the militants of the extremist Fatah al-Islam faction have presented the toughest challenge to the Lebanese Army in years. But the group, which emerged a year ago, looks set to fight a bloody last stand as a shaky ceasefire runs out.

So these animals who are getting innocents killed are nothing more than street junkies? Allah must be so proud. (insert serious sarcasm) If they want to die so bad, why don’t they just put a bullet in their own heads, and leave the rest of the people around them in peace!

Report: US sabotaging Iran nukes

Intelligence operatives in the US and its allied nations have sold Iran flawed technological components in an attempt to sabotage the country’s nuclear enrichment program, CBS News revealed Wednesday evening.

How does this kind of thing get to be common knowledge? Isn’t there anything that CBS thinks should be kept secret from our enemies?

Clinton Persists on Iraq Withdrawal Plan

Senator Clinton is urging the Pentagon to begin planning for an American troop withdrawal from Iraq, even as Democrats in Congress have backed off a demand that an exit timetable be tied to war funding.

I’m curious. Has Clinton actually done anything for her “home” state, or is she too busy meddling in things.

Rosie O’Donnell and Elisabeth Hasselbeck Engage in Raucous On-Air Feud on ‘The View’

A political discussion over the war in Iraq became heated when an angry O’Donnell decried Hasselbeck for not standing up for her when media outlets suggested that she’d called U.S. troops “terrorists” during a previous debate.

I’ve never watched the View, and I’m honestly getting sick of hearing about what Rosie says, but it was actually kind of fun to watch the clips of the dainty lady take on the fat bat.

Crash victim’s family sues Hyundai
Company officials helped a colleague leave the country before police could talk to him about an O.C. hit-and-run, suit says.

Cook, 23, was killed in October 2005 when his motorcycle slammed into Lee’s disabled car on the Costa Mesa Freeway. Lee, who had been drinking with colleagues shortly before the crash, left the scene and was on a plane to his native South Korea less than 24 hours later, according to police and court records.

I’m confused. The guy slams his motorcycle into a disable car. I guess the car wasn’t moving if it was disabled, right? The owner of the car had been drinking, but his car was disables, so he wasn’t driving? And even though it was the motorcycle driver who slammed into the car, the car’s owner is charged. And the family is suing the company the man works for. Do I have that all straight? I must be missing something. Although it wasn’t a good idea for the guy to leave the scene, and it wasn’t a good idea for the company to send him out of the country, is it really the company’s fault the son was killed? Still confused.  How can it be a hit and run if the motorcycle was moving and the car wasn’t?
