"President Bush told leaders of 40 nations in Annapolis, Maryland that achieving peace in the Middle East is the central goal of his final year as president. He then left the peace conference to return to the White House and continue planning war with Iran." --Bob Hirschfeld, Maryland

GOP Sleight of Hand
Even when Securities and
Exchange Commission Chairman Christopher Cox is blocking shareholder rights, he
wants investors to think he’s their advocate.
Don’t buy it.
The top U.S. securities cop is looking to be anything but that, given his support this week of regulation that will allow companies to deny shareholders the right to put their own director nominees on corporate ballots.
"The Republican candidates sparred bitterly over abortion during last night's debate as they each claimed to be the most 'pro-life.' Most of the candidates did so by promising to try to overturn Roe v. Wade, but Rudy Giuliani improvised by impregnating three women in the audience." --Jake Novak, New York

Subject: The GOP Jesus Card
What would Jesus do about capital punishment? That was the question asked at the GOP debate
Answer from Mike Huckabee -“Jesus was too smart to ever run for public office. That's what Jesus would do."
How is that an answer? Wasn't Jesus voluntarily chosen by the people to lead them? That's sounds public to me.
Didn't Jesus meet "capital punishment" on a cross? Huckabee is a huckster preacher. No more, no less.
As a Christian I am very very offended by using Jesus in politics.
Thank you for AHNC.
According to the Bible, less than two days after Jesus kicked the moneychangers out of the temple, he became a victim of capital punishment, at the young age of 33.
Today, most televangelists are the moneychangers, sitting upon gilded chairs only afforded by European royalty.
We are a product of our environment. We are constantly shown the GOP Jesus card always dealt along with -- Democrats are horrible people, especially the Clintons.
And where has it gotten us? Knee deep in a religious war against mysterious enemies, possibly?
Christian right wing politics has brought us into a GOP Dark Age. Evolution, stem cell research, global warming or anything that would improve the human condition is brutally axed through the smarmy voices of Rush on radio, O'Reilly on cable and Bob Novak in ink, to name a few.
Our constitution was written by British people escaping from the brutality of the Church of England and the "British Empire". No wonder the separation of church and state came in to play -- they didn't want another government backed religion murdering and maiming people for believing in different religion or for not paying taxes or tithes. Merry Old England, my foot.
Now the moneychangers are in the White House and halls of Congress, distorting history, science, democracy, and worst of all, Jesus.
We need a renaissance to get out of these Dark Ages. A high renaissance.
Knowing ignorance is strength;
Ignoring knowledge is sickness.

FEMA Wants Their Toxic Trailers Back
Almost 3,000 families
here and across Louisiana will have to leave their government-supplied trailers
over the next few months under a new schedule prepared by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency...But advocates who work with trailer park residents are
skeptical of the plan,
noting anyone still living in a cramped, flimsy and possibly
formaldehyde-tainted trailer probably has nowhere else to go.
President Bush drew good reviews Wednesday for his determined effort in Middle East talks. For seven years, Republicans have shown little interest in keeping the prospects of peace alive. They've got their hands full just keeping Dick Cheney alive. - Argus Hamilton

An artist's rendition released by the European Space Agency on Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2007 shows lightning striking the surface of planet Venus. Nearby planet Venus is looking a bit more Earth-like with frequent bursts of lightning confirmed by a new European space probe. For nearly three decades, astronomers have said Venus probably had lightning, ever since a 1978 NASA probe showed signs of electrical activity in its atmosphere. But experts were not sure because of signal interference. Photo/ESA
