    So, 4000 rubes are dead. Cry me the Tigris. Another 30,000 have been seriously wounded. Boo #ucking hoo. They got what they asked for—and cool robotic limbs, too. Likely, just reading the above paragraph made you uncomfortable. But why? The benevolence of America’s “troops” is sacrosanct. Questioning their rectitude simply isn’t done. It’s the forbidden zone. We may rail against this tragic war, but our soldiers are lauded by all as saints. Why? They volunteered to partake in this savage idiocy, and for this they deserve our utmost respect? I think not. The nearly two-thirds of us who know this...

    Ping cancels accounts with local golf stores By David Westin | Staff Writer Thursday, September 28, 2006 A prominent golf equipment company's stance against retailers discounting its products has angered two area golf shops that give military customers a break. Because of the military discounts, Bonaventure Discount Golf in Augusta and Gordon Lakes Golf Course on Fort Gordon no longer receive Ping products. And even if they could, they would refuse to sell them now. Karsten Manufacturing Corp. of Phoenix, Ariz., which has a registered trademark on the Ping brand, discontinued its Bonaventure and Gordon Lakes accounts in August. In...

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - While other students planned to play college football, Timmy Bailey signed with a different recruiter - Uncle Sam. Now, after serving a year in Iraq, the 21-year-old private in the U.S. Army National Guard is back home. And remarkably, four years after Bailey graduated from a tiny high school in the rural Mississippi Delta, the soon-to-be sophomore has attracted more attention from college coaches than ever. "It's maturity - I'm not your average recruit," Bailey said. "I can talk better with the coaches on a one-on-one basis, and they love it." Bailey is expected to sign...

    Thursday, Sept. 16, 2004 10:05 p.m. EDT Police Union Backs Bush After Kerry Snub The nation's largest police union, the Fraternal Order of Police, has endorsed President Bush after being insulted by Sen. John Kerry. "This is the first time in the group's history that it has made a unanimous endorsement," FOP Executive Director Jim Pasco told Washington, D.C.'s Hill newspaper. "Not only are we strongly supporting Bush, we're mad at Kerry," he explained. "Our members feel he treated them without respect - 318,000 cops." Turns out the FOP sent the Kerry campaign a questionnaire to sound out the candidate's...

    Kennedy, Daschle Fined for Celebration Over Rice Testimony (2004-03-31) -- Senators Edward M. Kennedy and Tom Daschle face stiff fines for their "excessive celebration" over news that the Bush administration had succumbed to pressure to allow National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice to testify under oath before the 9/11 commission. A little-known Senate rule, similar to one used by the National Football League, prohibits "excessive, prolonged and premeditated celebrations by Senators," and levies heavy fines for violations. "Rather than politely welcoming the Bush decision to allow Rice to testify," said an unnamed expert, "Kennedy and Daschle did a virtual Snoopy-dance in...

    Eagles Beat Packers, Favre Blames Limbaugh's 'Bias' (2004-01-11) -- Veteran Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre tonight accused radio talkshow host Rush Limbaugh of bias after the Packer's 20-17 overtime loss to Donovan McNabb's Philadelphia Eagles. Mr. McNabb got off to the worst start of his career this season, and was the NFL's lowest-rated starting quarterback. But the Eagles' fortunes seemed to change in October after Mr. Limbaugh's televised remark that Mr. McNabb wasn't "that good" but that "the media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well." "Rush could have said 'the media has been very desirous that...

    This information comes from the Council on Foreign Relations. That ought to give your conspiracy advocates something to angst over. Since the United Nations was formed there have been about 26 international conflicts. Shooting wars involving member nations. Of these 26 conflicts, only 3 received UN support. The three that did receive U.N. support were The Korean War, the Gulf War and the war in Afghanistan. You have noted, haven't you, that the United States requested the UN approval in all three instances. The Russians, the French and the Chinese .. all of who have engaged in international conflicts since...

    HATE-FILLED Muslim cleric Abu Hamza is being urged to quit the country — before Britain kicks him out. Furious opponents, including Muslims, rounded on the hook-handed fanatic yesterday after ricin plot suspects were held at his mosque. Their calls piled pressure on Home Secretary David Blunkett, who has already ordered cops to nail the 45-year-old Egyptian firebrand — wanted in Yemen over an alleged terrorist bomb plot. Seven asylum seekers were arrested in the 2am raid on North London’s Finsbury Park mosque. One is thought to be a “major player” in terror group al-Qa’ida. Police also found a stun gun...
