Navy Tests Incredible Sci-Fi Weapon
The U.S. Navy yesterday
test fired an incredibly powerful new big gun designed to replace conventional
weaponry aboard ships. Sci-fi fans will recognize its awesome power and
The big gun uses electromagnetic energy instead of explosive chemical propellants to fire a projectile farther and faster. The railgun, as it is called, will ultimately fire a projectile more than 230 miles (370 kilometers) with a muzzle velocity seven times the speed of sound (Mach 7) and a velocity of Mach 5 at impact.
Hi Lisa, I
enjoy your site and have donated in the past.
That being said I hope to educate you on one fact.
Yes, Georgie and co. lied to everyone about their agenda ,but perceptive people saw right through these lies.
And so was born the anti-war movement.
We all knew it....she did too......Thanks ....D
I'm educated on facts and believe that Hillary will bring the troops home. And so will Obama. May the best human win! Thanks for writing.

Don't Republicans Want A Smaller Government?

Barack and Hillary would indeed make Thee Dream Team. No one could beat 'em. Now, who's gonna break it to Hillary that's she's the VP? - Grant Gerver, www.seriouskidding.com
Thank you for always posting great cartoons, comments, and articles about all the Republican shenanigans. Its good to be able to laugh at the mess weíre in.
After reading the hate mail youíve been getting for supporting Hillary and the Clintons, I just had to write in and let you know that there are plenty of us who support you and what you are doing. Keep poking fun at all sides of the debate. Iím an avid Obama supporter, but that doesnít mean I canít laugh at gaffs made by either him or Hillary. (Although Iíd ALWAYS rather have a laugh at the expense of the Republicans.)
Good luck with the fund raising,
Thanks for writing, Van. The Republicans are so easy to laugh at, aren't they? I mean who in the Democratic party can top Larry Craig? Pun intended.
And who in the Republican party can match Hillary and Obama?
Well, one thing is for sure, if Hillary gets the nomination the GOP will play the gender card and if Obama gets the nomination they'll play the race card. And if McCain wins his party's nomination, the Dems will play the elderly card!
Thanks so much for being a loyal fan of AHNC. Deep curtsey.

John McCain aired new ads touting his national security platform Friday. While others talk about the U.S. economy, he's running ads promising to continue the war. Nothing's scarier than a seventy-two-year-old man who's willing to die for his country. - Argus Hamilton

French Leader and Ex-Model Wed in Quiet Ceremony New York Times
Muslim women have a new - and warmer - alternative to their traditional hijabs as temperatures drop in Canada this winter. A young entrepreneur from Ottawa has designed fashionable head covers, made from water-resistant nylon and lined with fleece, which can be worn alone or over a traditional hijab. The toasty hijabs are the brainchild of Abeer Al-Azzawi, a 24-year-old graduate student who got into design because of a gap she saw in the clothing market for young women. Photo/Queendom Hijab
