Huckabee Dog Abuse and Cover Up?


As Mike Huckabee gains in the polls, the former Arkansas governor is finding that his record in office is getting more scrutiny. One issue likely to get attention is his handling of a sensitive family matter: allegations that one of his sons was involved in the hanging of a stray dog at a Boy Scout camp in 1998. The incident led to the dismissal of David Huckabee, then 17, from his job as a counselor at Camp Pioneer in Hatfield, Ark. It also prompted the local prosecuting attorney— bombarded with complaints generated by a national animal-rights group—to write a letter to the Arkansas state police seeking help investigating whether David and another teenager had violated state animal-cruelty laws. The state police never granted the request, and no charges were ever filed. But John Bailey, then the director of Arkansas's state police, tells NEWSWEEK that Governor Huckabee's chief of staff and personal lawyer both leaned on him to write a letter officially denying the local prosecutor's request.

Subject: Pelosi taking impeachment off the table


So, we only stand up for a sure thing? Nuts. What ever happened to doing the right thing regardless of the consequences? Get some backbone and stand up for something. Geeze.

Impeachment Is On Their Table


Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) doesn't get confused with Dennis Kucinich very often. But now the veteran Chicago congressman and the quixotic Ohio presidential wannabe have something in common: a desire to boot the vice president from office.

A message for our conservative friends


For those of you planning on voting republican to defeat the threat posed by illegal immigration, please realize: The republicans are going to handle it the same way they handled abortion. After 12 years of controlling Congress and 8 years of controlling the Presidency; they've done nothing about abortion. They aren't going to do anything about illegal immigration either. Without things like immigration and abortion, they'd be forced to address the real issues like the economy, healthcare, education, and the blowback from our occupation of Iraq. So if you want to see nothing done about illegal immigration... go ahead... vote Republican. -

The 433 ft long MV "Beluga SkySails" in an undated image. Turning ocean winds into gold while cutting greenhouse emissions in the process might sound like some sort of alchemy for the 21st century. The ship will make its maiden voyage in January across the Atlantic to Venezuela, up to Boston and back to Europe. It will be pulled by a giant computer-guided $725,000 kite tethered to the mast.
