By Amo, published on Sep 29, 2008

...and thus weakening both independent systems.

Of course, the Clinton Administration didn’t stop there, within that same year Clinton appointed Franklin Delano Raines, the CEO, of Fannie Mae giant GSE (Government Sponsored Enterprise), which had been "privatized" and listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Under Raines, the Clinton Administration began lobbying Congress for less regulation and more "flexibility".

Nick Fury, Agent Of S.h.i.e.l.d.

By DLFerguson, published on Sep 23, 2008

... but everybody acknowledges his love of country and sense of honor.The rest of the cast is equally good. Lisa Rinna has two of the most beautiful eyes this side of Meg Foster and she’s got great chemistry with Hasselhoff. During the scenes with Valentina searching for the missiles in New York, take a close look at her second in command. Yep, that’s Roger Cross who plays Curtis Manning on ‘24’. They never give his character a name so I’d like to think that maybe this is Curtis Manning before he transferred to CTU. Ron Canada as Gabriel Jones has some nice ... (more)

Sarah Stings Obama, While Wooing A Nation

By Amo, published on Sep 12, 2008

...as his running mate. Ironically, while Obama continues talking about change, McCain quietly goes about doing just that.

Perhaps it was Obama’s ego or his lack of understanding, or his sense of entitlement that prevented him from at least considering the senator from New York, for the Vice-Presidential slot, in any event, 18-million votes is a sizeable number to disregard.

Astoundingly, Obama and company have now tapped Senator Clinton to be the buffer and challenge Governor Palin. Apparently Obama and Joe (what’s his name), want nothing to do with ... (more)

The Greatest Week In Comedy

By D. E. Carson, published on Aug 31, 2008

...so eloquent a plan – and eloquent the would have had to have been for it to be an inside job. While a mere 3000 people died, the number of people who would have had to be sworn to secrecy would populate a small farm town in Oklahoma including Rudolph Giuliani, George Pataki and the entire New York City police and fire departments as well as the CEOs of American and United Airlines, the flight crew of the four planes and the United States Military Establishment. If you're going to do something as covert as blowing up the tallest buildings in New York City and the largest office building... (more)

There was no difficulty measuring the animus on July 4, 1910, when thousands of white Americans swarmed Reno, Nevada, to witness Jim Jeffries snatch the title away from Jack Johnson. Hailed as the “great white hope,” Jeffries said he was “going into the fight for the sole... (more)

America Under Surveillance: Creating Modern Slavery

By Lumiere, published on Aug 22, 2008

...said to the House of Representatives on June 27, 2002, "...Is America a Police State?" My answer is: "Maybe not yet, but it is fast approaching."

Across cities in America, police cameras are popping up at intersections, stop lights, highways, commercial buildings and even schools.

Ding, Ding, Russia Vs. Georgia

By Justin, published on Aug 15, 2008

I’m on a roll, and I am not stopping for anybody! Georgia, Russia, who’s next? It pains me, when I try to bring it up in conversation, that people ask me, “Oh my, why are they attacking Georgia, and not New York?” There must be something chronically wrong with the American view, and I thought that some of us would pay a little more attention to our news stations from the recent hikes in the stock market, and the upcoming election… obviously not so much.
