"Inclusiveness was not on the agenda on Tuesday as members of homophobic black
churches, stood with Mayor Naugle at City Hall preaching they are going to take
back the city, removing the sin and sinners. Religious men -- in paramilitary
gear -- were also standing aside the mayor bleating that 'the depth of sexual
sin in Broward County necessitates an old-fashioned spiritual revival.' From
Jeff's email to me: They escorted me from the front door to the elevator when I
entered the building today for this press conference, and stood 'post' at the
elevator lobby. The video is frightening, worse was I was standing in the room
with these people and worried what was going to happened next."
An environment like this concerns me. Why paramilitary gear, does this predict an outbreak of militant gay bashing in Florida.
"Congressional Democrats are trying to undermine U.S. Army Gen. David H.
Petraeus' credibility before he delivers a report on the Iraq war next week,
saying the general is a mouthpiece for President Bush and his findings can't be
trusted. 'The Bush report?' Senate Majority Whip Richard J. Durbin said when
asked about the upcoming report from Gen. Petraeus, U.S. commander in Iraq."
This is partisan politics, and it isn't fair. Wait for the report to come out, then comment on what is actually in the report. Being critical of what you claim you know is going to be in the report isn't honest or just.
"Former Solicitor General Ted Olson
Former Attorney General Bill Barr
Former Deputy Attorney General George Terwilliger
D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals JudgeLaurence Silberman
Former Deputy Attorney General Larry Thompson
MichaelMukasey, a former judge on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York."
This is the rumored short list for replacement of Gonzales. I don't know much about any of these people, but I will dig up some information to share.

This is scary.
MotherJones.com | MoJoBlog - Social Issues and Political Commentary: Breaking: Osama bin Laden to Make 9/11 Video Address to U.S.
"As being reported now by CNN, Osama bin Laden plans to make a video address to
the United States on September 11th. This is according to information picked up
by the SITE Institute, which tracks jihadist Internet chatter. The Al Qaeda
leader is expected to warn of new terrorist attacks.As being reported now by

It has been sometime since we have seen a video from Bin Laden. Reading this the first thought I had was that no American network should broadcast his video until the 12th. Why give him the honor and the spotlight of speaking to the American people on 9-11. The day that terrorists killed hundreds of our own people, and he wants to address us. I say let his message wait until the 12th.
"SAN FRANCISCO - Disgraced Democratic fundraiser Norman Hsu was arrested
in Colorado late Thursday after he failed to show up for a court appearance
related to a felony theft conviction. FBI agents took Hsu into custody at St.
Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, Colo., said FBI spokesman Joseph Schadler.
Hsu had been scheduled to appear in court Wednesday to turn over his passport
and ask a judge to cut in half the $2 million bail he posted last week when he
turned himself in after spending 15 years on the lam from a felony theft
Guess he is going to be sitting in jail until his trial now. It was stupid to run, the least he could have done was flee the country.
"A federal judge struck down parts of the revised USA Patriot Act on Thursday,
saying investigators must have a court's approval before they can order Internet
providers to turn over records without telling customers. U.S. District Judge
Victor Marrero said the government orders must be subject to meaningful judicial
review and that the recently rewritten Patriot Act 'offends the fundamental
constitutional principles of checks and balances and separation of powers.' "
I think that this is a strong decision. There must be a way to balance the power of the executive branch, the president needs to have the power to defend the nation. There must be checks to contain that power, we all like to think that our leaders are noble, and maybe they are. However, our government was created to balance power so that even if an abuser of power became president, the president would be checked in their power by other branches of government.
"SAN DIEGO - Dozens of truckers rallied at Mexican border crossings in
California and Texas Thursday to protest a pilot program to allow up to 100
Mexican trucking companies to haul their cargo anywhere in the United States.
Carrying signs reading “NAFTA Kills” and “Unsafe Mexican Trucks,” a few dozen
protesters circled in the heat for two hours at Laredo’s port of entry on the
U.S.-Mexico border. "
Taking safety into consideration the economic tangle that exists between the United States and Mexico means that it is just natural that Mexican truckers be allowed into the country. If we hold the right to block Mexican drivers from the US, they would then have the right to block American drivers from Mexico. There is no reason to assume drivers from Mexico are less safe than those from America. transferring cargo at the border would bring commerce to a halt.
"WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd, D-Conn., said Wednesday he will introduce a bill aimed at protecting homeowners,
particularly in the hard-hit subprime mortgage market. "
I question that regulation is the solution to this. The lenders will suffer for their mistakes because they are going to be stuck re-selling properties that could have less value than the loans that were due for the properties. There were many people who landed in a bad place because of the purchasing of properties with sub-prime loans. Does that mean that we should over look the benefit to those that were helped by them.
"Jim Mills, the former Fox News producer who joined the campaign only weeks ago,
has resigned due to 'strategic differences.' This from campaign manager Bill
Lacy in a memo to the staff, sent out Tuesday 'just before we begin the Big
Dance.' 'Our new Communications Director Todd Harris is building an experienced
and aggressive team of campaign professionals to help lead our press operation,'
Lacy wrote. He added, 'This constitutes a substantial shift, not in our
candidate's message, but in the way we support it and enhance it. Due to this
shift, Jim Mills has informed me that he is leaving the campaign due to
strategic differences. I respect Jim's decision and encourage all of you to join
me in wishing him the best of luck.'"
You know this isn't the best way to start off a campaign, he is already losing staffers. It took John McCain months to start losing staffers like this.
"WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Larry Craig had already decided not to seek
re-election before revelations that he pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a
Minnesota sex sting, two of the Idaho Republican's political advisers claimed
Then why doesn't he just walk away... why continue to drag this through the media. There is no chance that he is going to be able to overturn his own guilty plea - well pretty much no chance.
"SAN JOSE, Calif. - A couple were arrested after authorities said they performed
illegal and disfiguring cosmetic surgeries in their filthy home, filled with
drugs and syringes. Ha Nguyen, 48, and Zbigniew Makowski, 62, were
arrested Wednesday on suspicion of practicing medicine without a license and
child endangerment. Four children were removed from their home by child-welfare
officials, authorities said."
I want to know who the people were that were stupid enough that they accepted surgeries in such a place. We are not talking about life and death surgery here either that might explain why someone would accept a cheap fake doctor. If you have to get a surgery done, and you can't afford it any other way, but a face lift isn't something you have to get done.

"RICHMOND, Va. — Workers for private contractors made several hundred calls to
sex lines when they should have been cleaning City Hall or providing security.
Mayor L. Douglas Wilder promised a shakeup after learning of the calls, and an

"SYDNEY, Australia — Members of an Australian TV comedy show, one dressed as
Usama bin Laden, drove through two security checkpoints Thursday before being
stopped near the Sydney hotel where President Bush is staying. The stunt
embarrassed Sydney police who have imposed the tightest security measures in
city history for a summit of leaders from Pacific Rim countries, including Bush.
Police arrested 11 cast and crew from the TV program, 'The Chaser's War on
Everything,' and impounded three vehicles, the Australian Broadcasting Corp.,
which airs the show, said on its Web site."
Hello, my name is Usama and I am here for the meeting of world leaders, thank you for the pass, Allah bless you. This is really funny.

"An Indiana mom attempted to outrun a freight train at an intersection but

It just isn't worth it, there is no place that is so important to get to on time.
"Two weeks ago Wall Street Journal columnist Jeff Zaslow wondered if the
newsmedia's relentless coverage of pervs and priests was 'teaching our children
to fear men.' And today this query turns out to be a campaign! Zaslow interviews
some members of this oppressed constituency on 'how men cope with being cast as
predators.' And it is so poignant! 'I don't want to give even the slightest
indication that any inadvertent touching occurred,' says economist Rian Romoli
regarding times when he accidentally 'bumps into children.' (Um, with his erect
cock?) 'Being male,' adds a doctor as to why he avoids crying children who look
lost, 'I am guilty until proven innocent.' Oh, Jesus Christ, tell it to a black
I think this might be over stating the case that could be made. You can't blame the media for focusing on male perps, because most perps are male. The media covered the stories of female teachers having sex with their students, in the same manner that they did victims of male perps. In fact, I don't know that there really is a case at all to be made here.
It is a number 19 on the Amazon best seller list after only two days. This book is going to make a name for Rita and get her a chunk of change. Lets hope that Larry doesn't take any of it away from her because of her tales of his gay affair.
"A teenager was charged on Tuesday with killing and raping his sister and
beating his niece with a sledgehammer in a crime the sheriff called one of the
most brutal he's ever seen. Walter Smith Jr., 16, was charged with the
first-degree murder and rape of his 22-year-old sister, Betsy Mary Smith, and
aggravated assault against his two year-old niece, Andrea Costello. "
This boy must have been suffering from a great deal of pain himself to commit an act like this. It is sad, there is no excuse for his actions, and I think he should be charged as a adult. How does a family come together and heal after something like this.
"Syrian air defenses opened fire on Israeli aircraft that violated Syrian

" In light of her scandalous nude photo recently posted on the internet,
Walt Disney has parted ways with Vanessa Hudgens and has even already replaced
her part in ‘High School Musical 3‘. "
Do they really think that they can replace her and the kids won't notice? I bet the execs at Disney are so pissed right now. My prediction is that the third movie won't be the hit that the second has been. The magic of a hit show is in the performers relationship with each other, unless Zac is going to start dating the new girl for real, that magic isn't going to be there.
"Paris, who is said to have been keen to tread the boards in the West End for
some time, is to star as an inmate in the production set in a women-only prison.
It is believed her character will be involved in a lesbian romp. The source
added: 'Paris is keen to stretch herself as an actress so she's happy to kiss
another girl for the audience and actually thinks it'll be fun to play a
lesbian. She'll also get to stretch her vocal chords and she loves that.'"
Paris doesn't seem like the kind that would do well in a stage play. I could be wrong, maybe she will show herself to be talented at it. I wish her the best of luck on this project.

George is the consummate playboy, so it isn't breaking news that he would be seen with a new womyn. Hope that they are having fun together.

Is duck the new look these days? Because I've seen ducks. And I don't want to

don't want to say 'hot', but, wait, what the hell am I talking about? She's a
duck. I'm firing my therapist."
Jenna looks more like Jessica's sister than Ashlee does. Jessica and her creepy father would like us to believe that she is different than Jenna, but if you saw Dukes of Hazard you know. They are both getting by, or trying to get by, based on their bodies.
"It's hard to say anything bad about Johnny Depp, because he's such a sexy slab
