    Glenn Beck, (Former Catholic Mormon) does a pretty good job of exposing the blasphemy of the left, though he has not been a member of the Latter Day Saints as nearly long as Mitt, who did missionary work for the church eons ago. It is certainly fair to examine any candidate's faith, and how that doctrinal faith may effect the decision making process of a head of state. Unless you are a Democrat, President Obama's experience with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright was a great concern. The flap with Wright, and the twenty-some years candidate Barack spent under the tutelage of...

    (Reuters) - The sweeping healthcare overhaul the U.S. House of Representatives approved on Sunday includes about $455 billion in spending cuts for Medicare and other federal health programs over the next 10 years. Here are some questions and answers about how the reforms will affect the Medicare healthcare program for the elderly. WILL THE LEGISLATION CUT MEDICARE BENEFITS? There are no cuts to the traditional Medicare benefit. The lion's share of spending cuts are in Medicare Advantage -- a program that uses private firms such as Humana and UnitedHealth Group to deliver Medicare benefits. Many of these providers offer extra...

    Kaiser Health News has a Q & A for consumers, detailing who would have to get health insurance, what programs are available to help them afford it and how the legislation would affect seniors and young adults (Galewitz, 3/21). In a separate article, KHN details the immediate effects of the bill. "The provisions, which could just as easily be called the 'Democratic Incumbents' Protection Plan,' suddenly are everywhere—touted on liberal blogs, on the Rachel Maddow Show, in talking points by Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.

    WASHINGTON - Remember the Department of Homeland Security's "no-fly'' lists that erratically flagged 3-year-old children and dozens of men named David Nelson as terrorists seeking to board commercial airplanes? Well, now privacy experts are warning America to prepare for the "no-work'' list. As Congress debates immigration reform, experts say a little-discussed aspect of the bill, mandatory employee eligibility verification, is likely to have a colossal impact on the lives of every person in the U.S. labor market -- citizen and foreigner alike. "Everyone who wants to work will feel this provision,'' said Tim Sparapani, legal counsel for the American Civil...

    'Uppers' affect men more powerfully 20:30 10 April 2006 news service Roxanne Khamsi The stimulating drugs known as amphetamines have a stronger effect on men than women, a new study reveals. The study is the first to reveal how the release of dopamine, an important nerve signalling chemical, differs between the sexes in humans, says Gary Wand of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, US. He says the findings could help researchers understand why some disorders such as Parkinson's disease and Tourette's syndrome more commonly afflict men than women. Research suggests that men are more...

Before speaking at the Iowa GOP's annual fundraising dinner, Frist told reporters that his visit does not confirm any presidential aspirations. "I've been to Iowa many times,"...
